PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND THE SLA VE QUESTION. A telegram just received from New York, dated Sept. 26, says :-President Lincoln has issued a proclamation stating that the war would be continued to restore the constitutional relation between the States, and that he shall again recommend the next Congress to adopt a practical measure tendering pecuniary aid for the free acceptance or rejection of those States now in rebellion which may adopt an immediate or gradual abolition of slavery within their limits. Efforts to colonise negroes, with their consent, will be continued. The President further proclaims that on the 1st of January, 1863, all slaves.within any S^ate or part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the Federal Government, shall be then thence- forward and for ever free. The Federal executive and naval and military authorities will recognise and main- tain the freedom of such persons, and will do no acta to repress them in anv offovto tkoj- may maxe lor their actual freedom. The Federal Government will designate on the 1st January the States and parts of States which will then be in rebellion, and the fact that aay State, or the people thereof, shall on January 1 be in good faith represented in the United States Congress by members chosen at elections wherein the majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State and the people thereof have not been in rebellion against the United States. The President orders the military and naval authorities specially to observe the acts of Congress prohibiting the return of fugitive slaves, and calls attention to that por- tion of the Confiscation Act referring- specially to slaves. The proclamation states that the Federal Government will in time recommend that all citizens who have re- mained loyal throughout the rebellion shall, upon the restoration of constitutional relations, be compensated for all losses, including loss of slaves, by acts of the United States.
