LETTER FROM MRS. STOWE. The following letter from Mrs. Stowe has been published:— Northampton (U.S.), August 16,1864. Dear Sir,r—I have delayed answering your letter of July 9, enclosing a certificate of F.C.Ii. stock for benefit of Freed- man's Aid Society, because, being at a watering place, I could not immediately find the address of the treasurer of the Boston Society. I have this morning transmitted to him an order for the money, requesting him to acknowledge it to you, and to forward to you such documents as may show the progress of the society for the year. Never were a people more peaceable, more industrious, more hopeful in all respects. In the army are no truer soldiers, more exact in discipline, more docile to command, more fearless in battle. My brother. Colonel James C. Beecher, com- mands a regiment of them, and he speaks in the highest terms of their bravery and docility. The camp is also a school, and spelling-books and Testaments take the place. in leisure hours that is often given in armies to worse things. Eventually America, England, and the world will be of one mind on these subjects. There has been a great diversity of spirits, throughout the world, in this our controversy, but God will show the right, and when the right is shown all will acknowledge it. So now we keep silence, and wait; but when a brave heart sees things before the times we rejoice in it, and when the hand of aid comes to us from a, true Englishman, we hail it as a forerunner of the time when England and America shall be knit together in one heart and one mind, as they seemed to be before this conflict, only the union shall be a true one. The taking away of this accursed thing, slavery, will bring moral heal- ing and soundness. One great thing that has corrupted the world will have sunk like a millstone, never to rise. When I think how this accursed system of fraud and cruel tyranny ha.s sunk, and is still sinking, every event of our long and cruel struggle sending it still lower, I am reconciled to our sufferings and sorrows, to the shedding of such precious blood and loss of such precious lives as we are giving: and not long are we, I hope, from the time when the amend- ment of our constitution will finish and perpetuate the work, and make it impossible to hold a slave on American ground, as now on that of England. As I have changed my residence, and hope at some future time to have the pleasure of hearing from you again, I in- close my address (Mrs. H. B. Stowe, care of Dr. C. E. Stowe, Hartford, Conn., U.S.A.).—Very truly yours, H. B. STOWE.
