ry was therefore about four square miles of the former to one of the latter. Let this fact be borne in mind, the proportion of slave territory to free territory was about four to one. Among the earliest acts of the Southern States were deeds of cession, by which they conveyed a large portion of their territory to the General Government. Virginia, as is well known, ceded to the Confederacy the whole of her territory northwest of the Ohio river, by which the present States of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin were given to free labor.--By the cession of this tract of slave territory, which contained 239,558 square miles, the proportion between free and slave territory was at once greatly changed; for the free territory which had before the cession been but one fifth of the whole country, was by this voluntary act of a slave State, increased to more than one-half.

The result of the deliberations of the conservative Republicans at these various meetings was the adoption of the following programmer for a new Cabinet: Nathaniel P. Banks, of Illinois, Secretary of State. John C. Fremont, of California, Secretary of War. Cornelius Vanderbilt, of New York, Secretary of the Navy. Joseph Holt, of Kentucky, Attorney General.

Times gives reasons for a change in the Cabinet and against a change in the Cabinet. But the richest devel
