Mr. Wilson, United States Senator for Massachusetts, made an admirable

speech a month ago, at an "Abington celebration," on the question recently raised by our corre- spondent in New York—the resistance that would be made to carrying out the Emancipation Proclamation. He said that it would require the greatest firmness in the true Anti-Slavery men to keep the nation to absolute good faith. He him- self is staunch enough :—" If the President of the Cabinet, if the statesmen of the Administration shall prove false and recreant to this plighted faith of the nation, they will deserve the scorn of earth and the judgment of Heaven."
