In the organization of this regiment 1 have laborc-d under difficulties which might have discouraged one who had less faith in the wisdom of the "measure ; but I am glad to report that the ex-penmen t fs a complete success. My belief is that when we get a footing on the main land, regiments may be raised which will tlo more thau any now in service to put an end to this Rebellion." We are learuiug slowly, very slowly, iu this war to use the means of success that lie ready to our hands. We have learned at last that the negro is essential to our success, but we are still hesitating whether to allow him to do all he can, or only a part. It will not take many such pi oofs as this black regiment now offers to convince us of the full value of our new allies. But we ought to go beyond that selfishness whieh regards emly our own necessities, and remember that the negro has a right to fight for his freedom, and that lie ivill be a'.l the more fit to enjoy his new destiny by helping to achieve it.
