Effects of the Proclamation.

— Already are we beginning to see the results of the emancipation proclamation. Plans for a servile insurrection have just been detected in Culpepper, Va, and a number of suspicious colored individuals were arrested and executed, and on their persons were found copies of "Father Abraham's proclamation." We greatly fear we shall be called upon to record numerous other instances of a similar though more alarming nature, where the innocent, unprotected women and children shall have been massacred by these fiends to whom the President has given almost unlimited privileges, in order gratify his Abolition friends, and relieve himself of the "pressure" which he found impossible to withstand.
