is in active motion on the south side,

An ingenious method of overcoming

Speech of Wendell Fhillips Before
the New York Anti-Slavery
Society, in New York,
He thought there waa great (substance
of truth in Mr. Remond's remarks.
Americans must acknowledge the de
velopement of the characteristics of
the colored race provoked by our re
cent contest To be black was to be
loyal and patriotic. The blacks were
exempt from the policy of cowardice.
The black men of Savannah went out
to decorate the graves of Northern sol
diers, but were shut out by the power
of local government They needed no
disguise, and were proud to exhibit
their loyalty in the light He found
fault with General Grant's report of
General Butler, because its author for
got that Ben. Butler saved the nation's
life in two of the nation's greatest
emergencies. It was Butler at Annap
olis who saved us Washington, and the
same Ben. Butler preserved New Or
leans for the natiorl It was to the loy
alty of the black men of New Orleans
that the old flag waa permitted to float
over the third city of the republic.
History paints us in 1805 and 180G de
bating whether the black man shall"
have his rights compromised away and
thus to save the nation. No American
statesman ever thought of compromis
ing his own rights. Our statesmen
compromise the rights of third parties
The speaker held that the Anti
slavery Society met to say that those
who represent the black race protest
against any plan of settlement which
had been advanced by either the Presi
dent or Congress. Slavery ia to be
fought by the great social elements
that make governments and give char
acter to nations. The only sure cure
is universal amnesty and univer
euffrage wherever the American
flag floats Not that he would not
have traitors punished. lie did
not underestimate the crime of
such men. A disfranchised man com
ing out of the crisis ha3 all his ties
doubled by the experience of a common
mibfortune. If Jtlf. Davis could have
hung, he would have passed into histo
ry as a sentiment perhaps, like Charle3
the Second, as a power; but the time
for hanging him was past The leaders
in the South hated the North more
than ever. If we had not intellectual
forces sufficiently strong and numer
to neutralize them, then the gov
ernment and the nation are fail
ures. We must open our eyes wide
and take in tho whole country.
The half million of leading minds
of the South could not be changed.
God does not change lifelong preju
dices. He places them into the grave,
and gives room for the young . fresh
truth to grow, and it therefore takes a
whole generation, at least, to accom
plish such a result The South
does not dread negro suffrage as
the greatest evil. That is not where
the bite comes. Negro suffrage
meant a Bcore of negro Congress
men Bitting in the House of Rep
resentatives. It means colored mer
chants in New Orleans and colored Sen
ators in Columbia. It meant negro
representatives sharing in making rail
road laws and other laws. Itieant
social equality, and there was where
the Southerner met the question. So
cial equality follows hard on the heel
of the ballot-box, and the South knows
it, and she resists negro suffrage for
what must follow it The negro in
Maryland in the Legislature, is as good
as John Hancock signing the Declara
tion of Independence, and this was a
principle which the South would not
admit Nor would the North admit it.
She gropes toward it, but does not travel
very rapidly in the right direction.
Johnson never promised any thing
and he never fulfilled it His treason
commenced when he broke from the
policy of the party that elevated him.
The speaker took great delight in the
taming of animals. He had recently
read about tue taming ot a lion in
Faris. The animal swallowed the coat
of a hussar, and the buttons gave him
a great bit of indigestion. Laughtt r
Alter that, whenever a hussar coat
made its appearance, the lion was as
docile as a lamb. ' Now John Tyler
swallowed a hussar coat, and Andy
Johnson had swallowed another, and
he wa3 tamed. The speaker, however,
did not consider the President the
worst possible man. President John
son has no other object in his heart
than to break up the Republican party.
He would praise him (Mr. Phillips) if
he thought he cculd secure him a
renomination for the Presidency.
He went to Washington with cor
rect idea, but soon become pos
sessed of a desire for a renomination;
and knowing that if the Republi
can party remained in-tact, the next
President would be General Grant,
he and Seward set themselves to
work to break up the Republican party.
Mr. Johnson neither hates nor loves
a politician never does. By his acts
the country has lost six valuable months
of education, and it i3 doubtful whether
we can now reap the benefits of the
war. When peace again rests on the
battlefields of America, the North will
ei'her go down or it will succeed with
out any compromise inscribed on its
banner. When history writes her fate,
let it record that there was no iesue but
universal justice, and that we died
fighting fur it Book education is of
inexpressible imporiance to tne uiacus
of the SoutL They and the poor
whites have been kept iu ignorance by
their leaders How shall we tear out
the Southern oligarchy ? We have set
tled one thing, that is, that this is the
country of equals. It is a new epoch.
Congress is obliged to protect the rights
of every citiz?u. He would not give
the negroes of Alabama the right to
vote unless he had the right to follow
him with education. The national
sword should never be sheathed.
Every citizea of Massachusetts must
have the constitutional right to teach
the colored people of South Carolina
Education is not all We can't get rid of
JfJerson Davis, or of the five thousand
toisoned chalices of the Southern peo
ple. We can't get rid of this hatred of
u'Tinranoft. W hat are we to dof rut
in thnn hand their prejudices, and
in the other forty acre faims, with Yan
kee ingenuity and the black man's
labor, and the latter will iriumpa.
Now. the South can not be invaded
with the elements of immigration, and
as long as that ia true, reconstruction is
impossible. The true plan was to have
lett tne army in the South, ana trans
fer the North to the South. The army
has come home, but the men must go
back. The fcouth needs money is des
olate and poor. The North stands eager
to irive it knowing that there is
either one hundred or two hundred
per cent on her capital if the South
will let Boston invest her wealth there.
But the South makes it impossible, and
tbe bouthern btates remain desolated.
The South visits Washington and says
that if her Representatives are not ad
mitted she will check the wheels of
Government, and bring about repudia
tion. Then she will withdraw from the
Government and defy the nation to
borrow money to put her down. Con
gress and the President are against us.
Where are the men in Congress who
led OS in 1S64 and 18G5? They are
silent, because they are afraid to invite
opposition at home. Congress is weak.
It is our duty before the next election
to teach the masses that it is our right
and duty to hold over the South the
power to promote education and equal
ity. The war, however, is constitutional,
and under that power Congresa has the
right to see that the nation is saved.
The war is not over ; the epoch is not
ended ; the nation is still struggling to
be a unit; we gain by half inches, while
we seem to gain by feet; but the tide is
not lo be checked. Let Congress enact,
and let the full swing of the war power
continue. Mr. Phillips alluded to the
laws of Mississippi, in relation to bind
ing out negroes, and said they were
only slaves. H continued: Some men
call this incendiary talk ; but talk oth
erwise and you lose the benefits of the
battle. If the people meant that their
children should win the battle, when
they meet in the field again they must
go down, if they are destined to go
down, with the banner of absolute jus
tice waving over them. When history
writes the fate of the nation it must say
that absolute justice was the only cure
for the national hurt The cause of
nationality for the future rests upon
the negro. Book education is indis
pensably necessary for the race.
It must be brought under the guid
ance and influence of Northern jour
nals. The South said that the dead
weight of the poor white and the negro
should be the i asis of a Southern oli
garchy; and this conviction must be re
moved from the Southern mind. The
rebellion grew out of one idea, that
the word republican, in an American
Bense, meant the absolute freedom of
every citizen before the law. One thing
had been settled, and that was, that
this country is a country where every
man is a man before the law. Lowell
had said: "Make a man and let him
be," and that was the sentiment of the
idea out of which the war came. The
nation has a right to protect schools
forever even down to New Orleans.
South Carolina must not be shut up
like China and Japan, against the edu
cational influences of the North. Mas
sachusetts must not be debarred from
going down there to speak as they may
choose to do. Congres3 has the consti
tutional right to carry the school-house
wherever the ballot has been set up.
suffrage i3 forty times better than that
antiquated symbol of education, Har
vard College. L Applause. J .ballot
boxes must be scattered all over tho
land. The nation can not put away
Jeff. Davis or Governor Aiken with his
ignorance. They must be accepted as
necessary evils. Labor must bo har
monized in the South by putting a Yan
kee, with a full head of brains and a
pocket-full of greenbacks, beside the
negro and the poor white. That having"
been done, Jeff. Davis may whistle ia
vain to the end of tho chapter. As
long as the tide of emigration from the
South to the West continued recon
struction would be impossible. Brains
and capital mu3t go back to the South.
Civilization alone can perfect the great
work of reconstruction. The South
knows her need. Sherman has
turned her over forty miles
wide and she knows and feels
her desolation. If Massachusetts
would empty her products on tho
Alabama as she does on the Illinois, re
construction would soon begin to come.
But the South will not let her do so.
Politics and finance, and that "snag,"
the Supreme Court will not let her do
it No man knows which door we will
go out of, but all the elemental forces
are behind us, and with the ballot, the
school house and the sword, the work
of reconstruction must go on. That is
the only way it can be effected. Con
gress feels weak. It means well. It
does not intend to quail under Presi
dential dictation, but the people should
continue to believe that there is only
one safe way to settle the question, and
that is by holding the sword of revolu
tionary right over the South. Without
doing that, all efforts at reconstruction
must prove a failure. Any man who
supposed that the transition State had
closed is mistaken. The nation is still
struggling for its life. The lash is still
being used in the South. The slave
oligarchy still insist upon ruling the
nation. In conclusion, he would im
press upon the mind of every aboli
tionist that the revolution is still in
progress, and must be fought until the
nation is securely fixed upon the foun
dation of absolute justice. To Congress
he would say, if you can safely remain
in session, remain so forever, but when
ever you act, and whatever you do, see
that the nition is saved.

New York, May 14. The Herald's Fort
Monroe correspondent says: JeS". Davis re
ceived the announcement of his indictment
with indifference. His main point of de

action of h i respective Stae.

Philadelphia, May 14. The fai'ure of
Work, Alctouch Co , bankers ol this city,

heavy losses on it ck speculators, they we!e
great bearera in Westonville passenger rail
road shares, which were forced up to foriy

A New Destroyer of Wheat. Our
old friend, Hiram II. Embry, of Carroll
county, in this State, one of the oldest
and best farmers in that county, in
formed us on yesterday that a new de
stroyer ot wheat has made its appear
ance in the wheat fields there in the
shape of a small insect which appears
on the tlude, varying from one to four in
number, and which is producing sad
havoc. The attention of 2Ir. Embry
was first called to the appearance of
this insect and its destructive powers
by another old farmer of the same
county, Mr. Henrv Sumraerlin. The
two together have watched the pro
gress of this insect, and what with the
present appearance of the wheat crop
ia this vicinity, and the destructive
powers of the insect itself, have come
to the conclusion that great damage
will be none to the wheat crop in car
roll if it be not totally destroyed. The
insect, Mr. E. states, has never before
made its appearance in that county.
Farmsrs would do well to look after
their wheat, and cote the appeararce of
the troublesome insect, its habits, and
to forth, and discover, if possible, the
source ot its origin. Atlanta IntcUigencer.
