invade a relwl State they may be permitted to arm fae slaves who come to them: that the President is entirety ipposed to this policy that the other merauci of the Cabinet arc divided some favorina'tlie views of Mr Cameron some siding with the President So much Is well understood But precisely whai is meant by arming the slaves?" misapprehension commence Many aeenk to suppose that the jvlan is to put armsjjinto tlie hands of the slaves to he used 'by them as they please This would make of the slaves ah armed mob ignorant brutal and burning with revenge against their life-long oppressors It would be likely to lead tij indiscriminate massacre sparing neither jwxjnor age No Christian man no man of common humanity can countenance such a scheme Hut Secretary plan is widely different from this: lie proposes to enlist toe slaves as volunteers for the war forming them into companie and regiments to he commanded ly competent white Officers amj to serve with thq army aa a regular port tliereoC Thus toe slaves would accompany the whifa soldiers fighting with them and subj ect jo the same discipline in all respects What ia the objection to this plan It is well known that many negroes served as soldiers in the Revolution ind did most efficient service the patriot armies In the last war with England too General Jack-son commanded large! bands of bltck soldiers at the battle of New Orleans lie complimented them highly and frankly acknowledged his obligations to them Elsewhere the negro has often shown that he possesses tlie qualities requisilej for a gooff soldier In St Domingo negro armies officered only by negroes proved thensclves fully equal to the veteran white soldiers scnt against them Trustable and auborijina by taught implicit obedience from childhood and eminently patient the negn soldiers are alwaj-s more easily subject to di iciplihe than white And at the same tim lenever and wlierev er fairly tried they liav shown a patient stubborn courage which made them exceed ingly formidable: Then why should We not use them Look at it a moment Wq are seeking to subdue revolted slates Within these states are fopr millions oi pc pie proved by the

State including blacks are jan our side A majority ot the fighting men arq willing anxious to fight for us Is it iot folly to refuse them? About our troops In the neighborhood of Beanfort' are now gathered 16000 runaway slaves of whom I understand at least 5000 are now 'able to beiir armk Many of them are actually beseechfng to be allowed to do so Do we not need tl em Can we afford to refuse to receive Ihc offered help of these our friends? How on Carolina remain if we would onty let these native South Cixolinians join troops and fight with hem foi? the Union In the revolted states a large army might eiv sily be formed of freed laves anxious' to put down the rebellion They 'would serve for much less pay ant li' re on poorer rations than white soldiers to us'lessening'the cost of the war They vsou 'greatly shorten its duration Formed into regiments drilled disciplined and officered by experienced office! they would bring the war witii northern help to a speexly jelape Again I ask can we afford to rejiel If we do it will cost hundred of I millions of treasure wliiqh ve might satj-e-1 Are we in love with taxes!
