HEW TO THE LINE. VOIi. V. THE POLITICAL PARTIES AND THE NEGRO. XVHI. The Confiscation Act, which was enacted by Congress the latter part of August, 1861, was In line with all that had gone before It, in reference to slaver. Section 3 of that act was only intended to "free the slaves employed against the government by the rebels in their military operations," and it was criticised by its opponents as an attempt to "bribe the slaves to fight against the North ant, not In its favor.". For if they engaged in the war at all, they were compelled to do so as enemies of the government; but if they remained on their master's plantations and assisted in raising provisions for the rebel armies, they would have the protection of both the loyal and the confederate governments. So the policy of both parties to the great struggle was thus subordinated to the protection of slavery. Secretary of War Simon Cameron, however, pretended that he favored an anti-slavery war policy but that was false, for ...
