The measure is not aaked for by the owner*, who ar s (he principal par ties. 2d. It in not asked for by the general people of the District. 3d. N<> evidence exists that it is asked fjr or really desired by the Slaves them selves. if uniucitcd thereto by the origina tor* of tbe mcaaare. 4th. It appears to be urged on par ty and sectional grounds alone, in the lace of the misery and desolation which (be indulgence of party aud sectional passions Lax already produced. sth. There is no necessity for (he mea sure at (his precise time say wore than I t (he last xtxty year* especially as all the grossest features of slavery were re moved from the District by tbe leglsla:iun ot 1860. (ith. If the proposition to enact such a measure in not purpuaaly designed to frustrate a nwtoratiou of (be Union, it is xactly adapted to (hat cud, since it v ill supply the nW leaders with sows of that proof of their accusations against the government of the United Stales which they have hitherto *o much need td. The passage of >U.h s bill will be playing directly it.to rebel bands, whilst it will enibairaw* the fro nd* of the Un ion throughout the loyal border State*, sud the wide South ; aud, by arousing now doubt* iu their mind*, will para lize thcii. efforts, am] thus indefinitely protract a bloody and expensive civil war. If there is one thing iu the world clearer than all the rest it b that new agitations on the slavery question should have been held iu abeyance till after the war, so that the war could have been {)ro*ccutt:d without distractior. by all the oyal people of the country. The course that b now pursued b calcula ted to rc- unite the sonth aud divide the North. 7th. The attempt to pas* this in a hurry at thb juncture b suggestive of the doubt* of its advooatca if it could bo passed when both sides of the ques tion could he more fully aud fairly rep resented. It look* like an attempt to take a snap-judgment iu th absence of one party. Bth. The attempt to abolish slavery here without the previous concurrence of Maryland, will be considered an aci of bad faith, the term* of the cession of the territory of the District having beau always understood to comprise the con sent of Maryland to any act of aboli tion. 9th The proposed compensation b manifestly inadequate, and in many ea ses would reach only to a half or a quarter of the value of (be property pro posed to be surrendered. Numerous widows, orphans, and aged and helpless persons of both sexes who have been left dependent on the wages of servants, would in a great measure be deprived of the mr-aus of fubsbtcuee. 10th. The compensation proper to be paid in each case can be ascertained only by an actual appraisement of tbs property in question. 11. The present statue of slavery in thi* District was determined by (he sol emn compromise of 1850, in whieh tbe loyal border States have still an equita ble interest. It becomes tbe people of the free and slave States to respect and ad "here to that settlement in a faithful and lojal spirit. 12th. The standard bearer of the rs- > publican party announced prior to the > last preeidcntal election that though hb! party claimed the power of abolishing ' slavery in this Dbtrict as u bare eon- 1 stitutioual right, yet that they did not} intend to avail themselves of that pow-: er. The following extract from the speech of Mr. Lincoln at Quincy. II!., b found i Hi Follctt A Foster's edition of Political Debates, page 197.

In bis speech at tbe Cooper IpDi-1 1 lute, New York, February 27, 1860, ■ i ■ Mr. Lincoln claims the Republican par- < ty to be “conservative** in contradistinction to the Democratic party. He said: < 1 “We republicans, stick to, contend for | the identical old policy on tbe slavery i question which was adopted by our fath ! era who formed tbe Government under i I which ‘we live; whilst the Democracy! ; with one accord reject, and spit- upon ; | that old policy, aud iusbts upon sub-• ! stituting something new.'* Tbe eontin- j i uation of slavery iu this District was a eonatititutioual part of (be “identical , . old policy of onr fathers who framed! the Government.” Why should we be so impatient of their arrangements, and ; ! “insist upon substituting something new?** ' Can't we put up with what they did not find fault with? , 14ih. The geographical position of the District in a slave region requires (hat its , status should be assimilated to that re , giun. Southern Members of Congress and Southern Presidents, Cabinet Officers, ; and Judges, ought not to he i * debarred the courtesy of bringing | and safely training here fur (heir i ; use, domestics from their families at | . 1 home. •j 16th. It is pretty clear from what i : ( drop* in debates in Congress on this bill, ; > that it is bat the begiuiug of a social and j 1 political revolution in our midst. The ; j same power that can liberate onr negroes i against our will, can and perhaps will 1 confer upon them equality in civil and po- 1 I Utica) privileges with tbe whites, so, for I'■ instance that negroes may vote for muni- ■ 1 ! cipal or other officers ; may hold such of- t I I ftces then ■ lv *;andsit as juror% magic- , t (rates and judges in our courts. \ 16(h. Before schemes for negro emanei-' ’• pation are set on foot, the promoters of | these schemes should agree upon what | ‘ they mean ultimately to do. There is a ! radical and fundamental conflict in their views aud purposes. For instance,' the| Y speeches and writings of the President and 11 Postmaster Genera) favor compensation : I and gradual emancipation, with removal ■ ’' of the emancipated blacks from the coun- > try ; such men as Messrs. Lovejoy, Sum * 1 uer, Pomeroy, Ac., scout these conditions, ' . and appear resolved to liberate all the ,; slaves if they can, and keep them for a LI perpetual burden and annoyance to the j f whites. f 17th. The consideration of this bill on , the abstract question of the right or wrong of slavery ought not to take place. It ia . as much beyond the scope af ordinary leg ; tslation at any mere question of religion 4 or morals. No being in heaven or earth will ever accuse the men of Maine or { ■ Massachusetts of the tin of slavery in this , ’ District, if sin it be. They should not be ■ f 1 anxious to assume a responsibility and a . j guiltiness which cannot attack to them.— 1 ( The reflection that in their own families j I and State* they are free from slavery, ■ p ought to be sufficient for their peace of minds, since they are in a condition to . | th'iuk God that they are not as other men : and States are. Hands off ia their true | 1 duty, and self restraint from meddling in i I other men's matters. The example of the West India Islands ;' jis not at' all to the point. The blacks of | Jamaica iu 1835 were five to one of tbe j | whites. There ns no likelihood of any ! conflict of races there. It would be more , I to tk point to show that if blacks, form- ; * ' ing one-third ufjhe whole population of England herself, had been liberated, they 1 i had gone on successfully. But we know ; that no such thing ever took place, and | J |we sea that poor whites in England still j ! flounder on under n heavy weight of disa j Inline* All arguments from the West ! ' | India Islands are necessary fallacious. I9lh. Tbe people of tbe District of Co- , j luntbia ought not to suffer from the veu- i j geauce felt by Northern men towards the guilty receded States. This city bat stood faithful in all the past troubles, and came • cheerfully forward iu the tune of need to defend the Government. Let the guilty suffer for their crimaa; bat th sUvcb>)di re * and people of (he District of Columbia t ought nut to bt amds the sufferers for sins ’ not their own. Thb is but the —man \ sot dictate of justice. 20th. in any bill of emancipation. Congress ought to make pecuniary provi sion for the pauperism whieh may redkU from it, so that the white tax-payers shall l not bo punished two-fold. mu. “The error seems not safficiendy eradi cated that tbe operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subject to tbe coercion of the laws But our rulers can have no authority over such natural rights, only as wo have submitted them. The rights of eonaeboos wo never submit ted, we could not submit. Wc are an- i iworable for them to our God. Tbo le gitimate powers of government extend to i such acts only as are injurious to otlurs. j But it docs me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. Constraint may make him worse by ; making him a hypocrite, but it will uever make him a truer mao. It may fix him obstinately in bis errors, but wiU not core them. Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error. Give a loose scope to them, they will support the true religion by bringing every false one to their investigation. They are tbe natural enemies of error only. “Were the government to prescribe to ns oil)* medicine and diet, onr bodies would be iu such keeping as our souls arc now. Thus in France the emetic was once for bidden as a inedicinc, nod the potato as . ian article of food. Government is just as | fallible, too, when it fixes systems in phys- 1 ics. Galileo was sent to tbe Inquisition i | for affirming that the earth was a sphere— I i the government had declared it to be as flat | as trencher,, and Galileo was obligou to adjure bis error. This error, however, at length prevailed, and the earth became a globe and Dis?artes declared it was whirled round its axis by a votex. The government in which he lived was wise enough to see that this was no question of civil jurisdiction or wc should all have been involved by authority in vortices.— j In fact the vortieea have, b—r-eapladed r \ and the Newtonian principle of gravitation is now more firmly established, in the ba sis of reason, than it would were the gov ernment to stop in, and to make it an ar- j tide of necessary faith. “Heaton and experiments have been indulged, and error has fled before them. It is error alone which needs (be support of government. Truth can stand by it -1 self. Subject opinion to coercion ; whom will you make your inqusitora. Fallible ’ men ; men governed by passions, by pri- I vatc as well as public reasons. And why i subject it to coercion ? To produce uni- I fortuity. Bat is uniformity of opinion de }si table ? No more than of face or stature. I Introduce the bed of Procrustes, then ' and ss there is danger (hat the large men | may beat the small, make us all of a sixe, by lopping the former and stretching the | latter. Is uniformity attainable ? Mil lions of innocent men. women and chil i dreu. since the introduction of Chrtstiani ; ty. have been burnt, tortured, fined, im prisoned; yet we have not advanced an inch ! towards uniformity. What has Wn tbe | effect of coercion ? To make one half of! the earth fools, and tbs other half hypo- [ er ites. To support error all over the earth. j , Let us reflect that it is inhabited by a thousand millions of people. That these profess probably a thousand different sys tems of religion. That ours ia but one of that thousand. That if there is but one right, and ours that one, we should wish to see the 999 wandering sects gather into the fold of truth. Bat against such a majori ty we cannot effect this by force. Reason and persuasion are tbe only practicable in struments. To make way for these, free inquiry mart be indulged ; and bow can wc wish others in indulging it, while wc refuse it ourselves 7 But every State, | nays an inauisitor, bat established some religion. No taro, Kay I, have established ; the same. Is this a proof of the iufallibil- , ity of establishments f “Our sister States. Pennsylvania and I New York, however, have long subsist<*T ; without any establishment at all. The. experiment was new and doubtful when they made it. it answered beyond con-1 eeptiou. They flourish infinitely. They ! do not hang more malefactors than wc do. , They are not disturbed more with religi-, nos detention than we are. On the con- ' trary, their harmony is unparalleled, and I tan be ascribed to, nothing but thvir > unbounded tolerance, because there U no other circumstance iu which they differ from every other nation on earth. They have made the happy discovery that (be way to silence religious ibputca, is to cake t o notice of them.

Hal KETREAT FROM THE POTOMAC EXPLAINED. The most important movements that ever occurred on this continent arc now going on before our eyes. The brilliant j and astonishing success of the Virginia, 1 in the waters of IJbmpton Roads, opens; a new chapter in naval warfare, and marks a new era in the struggle which the South I is engaged in. The grand movement of 1 the army of the Potomac, in withdrawing | I from the offensive tine on the river of that j name and assuming a defensive one on the line of the Bapabauiioek aad Rapidan, places a new complcxiuu on the entire war , in Virginia. The policy of this change of position with reference to the intended attack of the enemy is obvious. The Potomac was the proper base for offensive operations against Maryland and Washington city; but as a Hue of defense fur Richmond, or -few gerous that could be held. The line upon which the army under Gen. Jos. Johnsc.i is now falling back is in the nature of ; the arc of a circle, of which Richmond is the centre. The enemy is put to the ne cessity of marching a considerable distance inland before engaging our forces. If de feated in general engagement, he can scarcely escape annihilation; for he w ill then be 100. far from the Potomac and from Washington city to reach safety by a few hours* flight like that he made after the battle of Manassas. If, on the con trary, be should be successful in his en counter with our force, he could not take advantage of bis victory on account of (he delay necessary to biing up his supplies from the distant Potomac. Wh‘ • cr will take the troui h to exam ine the map of Virginia will find that our line of defense as now adopted, stretches from the Rappahannock, by a grand cir cle, to Cumberland Gap, in the extreme south western corner of the State, embrac ing the Central and the Virginia and Tennessee railroads, the chief cities of Virginia, and the valley of the James,' with its canal and railroads, within the circumference. It will bo seen, too, that 1 this is purely a line of defense, assumed now as a necessity, in view of. the great force which we have, by our supine policy for six months, permitted the enemy to marshal and put in position without dis turbance, and at its leisure and pleasure. It is distressing to give up so largo a portion of Virginia, even fora season, to the domination of the foe, but the mea sure bus become a strategic necessity, and ■ is now the surest means of defeating the grand projects of the enemy, and insuring the success of our cause. The surprise S he will receive from the magnificent naval i occurrences in Hampton Roads, and from i the judicious movements of our army, i which has so long been threatening him • before Washington, will be very great.: I Mere delay is ruin to him, and considers- I ; ble delay in the execution of his pro- j i gramme is now inevitable. —Richmond Exam.

That depends upon circumstances. Some j times, when they are marching, they find themselves in battle almost before ! they -know it. I remember that cn the I 18th of July, three days before the battle of Dull Run, when suddenly the enemy fired upon thefti, and the men hud to fight just as they were, only a great many threw dowu their coats and blankets and I haversacks, so that they could fight freely 1 (and easily. You also wonder whether ! the regiments fire regularly in volleys, or whether each man fires as fast as he can. I | That, also, depends upon circumstances, I but usually, except when the enemy is near at hand, the regiments fire only at I : the command of their officers. You hearj a drop, drop, drop, as a few of the skir- i mishers fire, followed by a rattle and roll, i which sounds like the falling of a Laild i ing, just as some of you have heard the i • brick wails tumble at a great fire. i Sometimes, when a body of the enemy’s j cavalry are sweeping down upon a regi : meat to cut it to pieces, the men form in a square, wiji the officers and musicians in the ceutie. The front rank stands with bayonets charged, while the second rank fires as fast as it can. Sometimes j they fire in four ranks deep, the two front ones kneeling with their bayonets charged, j ! so that if the enemy should come upon i them, they would run against a picket fence of bayonets. When they form in this way. the other two ranks load and . fire as fust as they can. Then the roar is : terrific, and many a horse and hiss rider goes down before the terrible storm of iron j nail- Tiik Tkktii.—Everybody admires a full, well-formed, and clean set of teeth.— Many a fair one owes not a little of her i power over the other sex to the coy czpo -1 sure of a “masked battery** of pearly teeth that lie behind a breastwork of ruby lips. : ' A handsome set of teeth is a passport to favor. To eat without sound teeth is next to impossible. They are essential alike, to good looks and g od living. Yet few. people fully realize their Ksthetie and prac tical value till they arc partially destroy ed, ami the fearful gap* wad serious ineon- 1 renience occasioned by lh<:‘ extraction f a few teeth arouse the b*scr to a. sense of his great mi-tortu ie. Their usefulness and ' beauty arc then appreciated, but it w often t-m Lie to arn-st the process of decay which has carelessly allowed to begin its unwelcome inroad*. The pr nervation for the teeth is a matter which should be care fully urged upon children and young peo ple. because the causes of decay may gcn-| orally be traced to s neglect of the teeth ; in the early period of life.

The westernmost of j his bloody outposts is among the far-dis tant, wild mountains of New Mexico, mi the upper waters of ehc Hio Grande. Of the fierce battle that was fought there on the 21t ult . at the hamlet of Valmdi, I we have already given the purt'cuLr* The Confederates and savages undoubted -1 ly repulsed our forces oa that occasion; but it was after an exhibition of individual | heroism which has given us one of the j most glorious names of the war—that of the gallant North Uarolinian soldier, Capt. | Alexander Mcßae—a name worthy to | take rank with the undying names of | Lyon, Baker and Lander. OnrHroopa, j however, still continue to hold Fort Craig, which is situated on the opposite aide of | the river from Valverdo. The Confede rates, after their success, pushed north ward and seised the town of Albat|u<!rqur, and, at latest advices, were marching upon Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico, and Fort Union, the strongest fort in tho Ter ritory. In the meantime, the regiment of | Uaion volunteers which were raided last summer in Colorado Territory, have left : their quarters near Denver, and marched ! southward to reinforce Fort Union, and ' give battle to the Texan Confederate.*. Tho march is a terrible one, through tk ; mountainous uninhabited savage desert* •of Northern New Mexico; but the regi ; mom is composed of men who know no ! such word as difficulty.
