Magnanimity Iltffhcr-W'lue and Other
From the Iribune.
We have been most anxious that, in the set
tlement of our great National diirercucc, the
North should dral eeuerously with the South.
Only let slavery be utterly atnnhiliitpd root,
branch, and suckers and no cost could be too
great to Insure a pi rfect reconcilement of those
so lately divided by the maddening strife of
civil war. We labored and dared not once
only but persistently 1o have that btrife ended
by a negotiation or treaty which should define
the rights of oil parties, and preclude the possi
bility of confiscation! and executions lor treason.
Indeed, we should have much perferred that the
last billion of dollars that the war cost should
have been expended in rebuilding and replen
ishing the homes of the South rather than in
continuing their devastation. So, when at last
the Kobellion bad utterly collapsed and fallen
into aosolute ruin, our tir.-t thought was
to save those engaged in it from fur
ther inflictions, our first utterance a
plea that they should be treated with
magnanimity. At the moineni when the assas
sination ot President Lincoln had inturiated ihe
lojal million?, so that their ears were tempo
rarily deaf to the pleadings of mercy, w hen Au
drew Johnson, the Herald, the Jinxes, and other
Johnson urn oracles, wrc declaring that "trea
hou must be made odious" by vengeance and
bloodshed, we did our utmost to calm the popu
lar tury which they were so needlessly aggra
vating, and pleaded for conciliation and peace.
Thousands of subscribers left us, tuereiore,
never to return; hundreds of rlevcd but for
bearing friends wrote 119 that we were defying
public sentiment as it we did not know the
fact, or as it that lact might intluenoe our course.
Even down to a very lute day, the fact that we
were seekicg to have Jetlerson Davis either
promptly and fairly tried according to the laws
ot the land, or liberated with his fellow insur
gents, has been used oy the Tnncs &nd its echoes
to excite against us the bliterest prejudice
throughout the loyal States.
But there is just one test of magnanimity
that we cannot abide, and that is the surrender
of the black Unionists to the uncontrolled
domination of their white enemies. We can
not, even tor maenanimity's sake, be faithless
ana ungrateful. The lour millions of Southern
blacks were called to her deieuse by the nation
in her hour of mortal peril. They were pro
mised their freedom in case of her triumph;
and our honor is pledged to the complete tu I tu
rnout of that pledge. Whatever of sacrifice,
pecuniary or otherwise, may be required, the
blacks must be tree as we are, with like
guarantees that their liberty is no snaro and
no accident. The promise given in the aerony
of impending national dissolution must be kept
in tue full Biin-lnue of national deliverance
and prosperity. To hundred thousand blacks
are enlisted to fight for the Union, of whom
twenty-eight thousand died in her service, and
they cannot, in full view of Memphis and New
Oilcans, be left to such treatment as those they
enlisted to put down shall see tit to accord
them, without the blackest perfidy and ingra
titude. The magnanimity ot a guardian who
should make a piesent of his ward's etate to a
mistress, trusting that she would deal gene
rously by the rightful owner, must not be imi
tated by our rescued country.
The trio of generals who invite Mr. Beecher
to pray at Cleveland for the success of Jonusou
ism, treat this matter with a most eloquent
(silence. Knowing how thoroughly their chap
lain's honor and lame are bound up in the
national recognition of the manhood of the
blacks, thev do not even venture to assure him
that, it such a rare bird as a Johnsouised black
Union soldier could be found, he should be
made welcome at their Cleveland Convention.
They tulk ot "the rights ot al sections," but have
never a word to otter for the rights of all men.
They commend "a generous and magnanimous
policy towards the people ot the South;" but
they manifestly fail to recognize four millions of
those people as people at ail. They waDt the
Uuion reconstructed on a basis of "Christian
brotherhood ;" but they plainly fad to recognize
blacks as included in that brotherhood or
entitled to ouy rignts but such as the ltebels, at
once exasperated and ctiaerined by their over
whelming defeat, see fit to bestow on them.
The Generals do not recognize even the over
throw 01 slavery. On Mr. Beecher is thus im
posed a task harder than there was any need of.
They might and should have oil'ered him some
excuse, some palliation, ior nis Detrayai 01 tne
rights of the humble, persecuted, suffering mil
lions who have long believed in and trusted him
as their advocate and champion. It was un
generous, because unnecessary, on their part, to
render his apostasy so bare, so black, so hateful,
so hideous. In pily, if not in decency, they
should have put something into their letter im
pljing or insinuating an assurance that h
might serve his new masters without betraying
Gtd's poor and shnming the honorable record of
his past years. Bat military lite is apt to blunt
the finer sensibilities.
Mr. beecher, thus wantonly exposed, does
hia very best. If it were not for tacts of glar
ing notorietv he would have achieved a success.
"The excluded population," he says, "grow
more irritable." No. Mr. Beecher, the only
population ot our country to-day excluded from
the right ol self-government are the blacks, and
thev do not ' grow more irritable." The white
ex-Rebels have reconstructed their several
States, and now rule them with a rod of iron;
so that white Unionists are tleeimr thence by
thousauds. Bitter, impenitent Rebels are no
ruling mos-tol them as Governors; Rebel gene
rals and Colonels fill nearly every desirable
office, and stand ready to step into Congress
uhpnever vour Johnson Dartv shall triumpu in
the loyal States. But the four millions ot loyal
Southerners guilty ot being born black have no
voice in the Government they shed their blood
to uphold, and no shadow of power even in
tbohe States where they constitute a majority of
the entire population. And Jolinsonism is tuily
resolved that, with vour heln. thev never shall
have. That Is clearly the "being's end and
aim"' ot your Cleveland Convention.
All your talk of danger being apprehended
from the admission ot "Southern men" to Con
gress Is deceptive and misleading. What we
object to is the representation of Southern aris
tocracy and rebellion to the exclusion of South
ern labor and loyalty. Mr. Stewart ot Nevada,
last winter, proposed in the Sf nate a settlement
of all our remaining differences on the basis of
universal amnesty and impartial suffrage. Not
one commanding voice was raised from the
South in its favor. The men whom what you
call "the South." have been taucht to abhor and
dread would gladly have closed the controversy
vm tfriat Homo. Vmt "ttia Rnnt.h" unnrncrl tiia
supseBbon. And now you excuse "the. South"
aud blame ubI ... , . ,
Your military friends navinfs no word of hope
for the trecdmen, you are constrained to dratr in
tbe unwelcome topic. You scout the idea that
'the negro can be class! Ued and separated lrom
tbe white population." Yet that is exactly what
u done by tbe constitutions and laws which
on. asked to validate and perpetuate.
Wry one of those ten States which you con
demu Conaress lor not admitting to representa
tion has been reconstructed expressly, em
phatically, on the assumption that the blacks
are an Inferior, subject, senarate race, not
entitled to any voice in making or enforcing
the laws whereby they are governed. No one
of them, though he were as ercat as Toussaiut
or as rich as Purvis, must ever vote, or Bit on
! jury, or bold the smallest public trust. Any
white msn may live in immoral cohabitation
with a colored woman: but If he mar
rifs her he l puulnhed for it ai a

rob and murder another white, his testimony
cannot be taken to bring the malefactor to
justice. Thus, throughout the Boulu, every
conceivable legal device is employed to koep
the blacks deefaded and crushed, despUed and
benighted, and jour chief, Andrew Johnson,
tells them that they must not be enfranchised,
because If they do, the whites will kill them!
Such are the people, according to the represen
tation of jour and their head, to whose uncon
trollable disposal jou propose to consign the
Southern blacks, just alter scores of them were
butchered In New Orleans tor claiming the
right of Miflraac. And not blaok only, but
whites as well, were among the victims of that
bloody tragedy. The Rev. Mr. Horton, merely
for praying at the opening of the Krce State
Convention, was baf-clv murdered while an tin
resisiinir prisoner in the bands of the police.
And there are mr.ny clergymen whom you honor
and who have honored you, who would rather
be in his place than in yours.
But you coolly suegest that
"If Southern sntloty Is calmod, iettled, and occu
pied with new hopes and prosperous industries no
armies will be needed. Kiots wi,l subside; carele'a
banirers-oa will be driven off or better governed;
and a wav will be rraauaily opened up to the treed
man, through eduoatlou and indus'rr, to full citi
zenship, with all its powers and outiea."
I do not see bow this differs In essence from
the soft-voiced lullabies which soothed our
lathers-into all the iniquitous compacts of the
past. "Only save the Union, and f-lavery will
gradually die out of itself.'' That fatal miscal
culation has just cost us at least hall a million
lives and five billions of money. I thougnt you
were among those who taught us to "seek first
tbe kingdom of God and His righteousness, and
all these ihines shall be added unto you." But
our lathers had made no covenants with tbe
blacks guaranieeing their freedom, and lacked
the sore experience that we enjoy. If wo fall
where they stumbled, we sin agaiustthe clearest
Your talk of the blacks having a way "gradu
ally opened up, through education and industry,
to full citizenship," seems very heartless and
cruel, in view of the notorious facts that there
is not one common or public school in all the
Rebel States which a colored child is allowed to
enter, and that every etlort to secure some sort
of public system of education for blacks has
been defeated by the Rebel ascendancy there.
In New Orleans the blacks pay 15 per cent, of
the school tux, but 110 colored child is allowed
to share its benefits. The children of whites
who pay nothing are schooled at the expense of
blacks who pay thousands, but whoso children
are never allowed to enter tue schools. In the
Texas Convention, tbe few "ra liculs" struggled
in every way to have tome sort of provision
made lor educating rhs blacks: finally urging
that the school taxes collected of tueiu be
apm-opriated to the cducalou of their own
children; but every Rebel I mean "conserva
tive" united to vote down this aud every other
proposition looking to any education whatever
of blacks. In full view of such facts, Mr.
Beecher's suggestion is a trial to human
How is it that it is always the North that is
required to trust, and forbi ar, aud hope ? The
South desires representation m Congress, and
we respond, "Most certainly to-day, it you
choose: only let all your people be represented
thoe who were for the Unionists and late
struggle as well as tlisse who were Rebels. Give
us impartial sullrage, secured by a constitutional
amendment, aud make the other conditions of
reconstruction yourselves." "Oh no," says the
South, "we will stay out forever rather than
consent to that." "Very well: we can wait,"
say we. "Ah !" interposes Mr. Beecher, "let
the Rebels in now, with the power of double
representation, and I uuess they will educate
and enlranchise the blacks by-andby. Why
should the North be atraid ot the South ?" Mr.
B., we are afraid of being faithless to those who
in our great need were fuithiul to us. We are
afraid of being unjust. Is this fear ridiculous?
But says Mr. B.:
"Kelusinp to admit loyal Senators," etc. "will not
help the treeduieu."
What do you mean by "loyal" Senators, etc. ?
Do you consider General 'Forrest loyal? Is
Mayor Monroe loyal ? Are his mur Jering police
lojal? Is Captain Senmes, Sheriff elect of
Mobile, up to the Beecher standard oi loyalty?
All these say they are loal, and copy Andrew
Johnson io sligmatixing the radicals as "dts
unionists" aud "traitors." What is the srandurd
of loyalty? For our own part, knowing well
that "theSouth will be nowise calmed, nor
pacified, "nor benefited in any way, by the ad
mission of representatives who arc not the free
choice of her electors, we take no interest in
any scti Icmcnt that shall not be lull and final.
When tbe c'outhein States shall resume their
place in the nation's councils, 1 trust they will
be represented by such men as they choose to
send; but I protest against their election by
Rebels alone. Let all the people vote ! If the
blacks are to be excluded now, I see not how
they are ever to be enfranchised. But my first
coucern is thut the nation saall maintain its
plighted taitb, and not
"Keep the word of promise to the ear,
But break it to the hope."
Mr. Beecher has achieved a sudden and wide
popularity. In the conception of every black
leg, duellist, neerro-killer, and rowdy, from the
St. John to the Rio Grande, he has all at once
ceased to be a fanatic, a bigot, a disumonist,
and become an enlightened pulnot and states
man. His praises are lreely mingled with the
blasphemies of the Hook and the ribaldry of the
bunday Mercury. There is not in all the land
one who considers "niggers very good in their
place," but that place under the feet of the
whites, who does not thank him for bis letter.
The Thugs of New Orleans ore by this time en
jojinjr it, and General Forret-t would gladly pre
side at a meeting called expressly to ratify it.
But there i9 sadness in many hearts where tke
eloquent pastor of Plymouth Church ha9 been,
loved aud honored a mournful consciousness
that they have trusted too confidingly and
loved unwisely. "Little children, keep your
hearts from idols."
The Circulating Medium Paper Ilou
auil heiie Ia'nieut.
From the Herald.
Mr. MrCulloch, in a recent sprend-enlo letter
on the public finances, to which we have already
called attention, remarked that our present
prosperity was rather apparent than real, and
Intimated that nothing but a resumption of
Bpecie payments could rescue the country from
its present troubles, and so avert the calamities
which threaten it in consequence of the almighty
dollar circulating In paper, with no present hope
ot redemption in gold, lie seemed in that letter,
as indeed he also did in hi previously delivered
financial stump speeches, to consider the United
States in a deplorable condition, and sorely in
need ot the benefit of some of that mature expe-
, , . . .
rience wmcu ue Eainea in inaiana as a Danker,
from observing the beginning, the climax, and
the end of the career of a tew of those "wild
tat" banks which are, unfortunately for the
West, so Intimately associated with its history.
It seems to us that Mr. McCullough underrates
the credit ot the United States Government as it
stands in tbe estimation ot tbe people, and that
as he sits in the Treasury chair he imagines him
self tbe manager of a new bank, diuerinor from
tbe other only in tbe tact of its havlnz a larger
circulation. With tbe meinorv of the names.
such as they were, of 1837 and 1857 fre?h In his
mind, he looks upon a period of suspension as
lnriicatiiis an unsouuu biaie oi auairs. national v.
financially, and commercially, and thinks his
chief aim oucht to be to accomplish what he
did in Indiaua. He looks with Bhakspcare upon
paper money, even when issued by the United
biates, as trasn, ana cmiuors ior specie pay
menu as H ne inougui vum nuuuiu oe tne ultima
thule of our national efforts.
In view, therefore, of this peculiar condition
of mind on the part of Mr. McCulloch, which we
may politely term specie mama, we adme htm
to visit tho commercial and manufacturing
centies of the country, and observe for himself
how fast the country is drifting to ruin, and how
fictitious all our prosperity Is. Although we
have altout twelve hundred millious of currency
in circulation, including two hundred and ninety
millions of national bank notes, and at tbe same
iuie only about six million elgtit hundred thou-
sand dollars In gold in the banks of this city,
and nearly the whole of that lent out, he will
find that our prosperity was never treater, and
that public confidence in "greenbacks" Is all
that could be desired. Why, tben, should
he volunteer bis services as the advocate
oi the national banking and the fund
holding interest by saying, in fact, we
must transmute this filthy lucre these dirty
raps into cold, or we are lost in a sea of bank
ruptcy ? There is nothing that the f undholders
and national banks would like better than a
restoration ot specie payments. It would appre
ciate their securities one-third in value, say to
the extent of eight hundred millions; but it
would at the same time depreciate the property
of the people at large in an equal ratio, say to
the extent ot five thouand millions of dollars.
The national bnks would in particular be oene
flted, as the stocks which tbey have deposited
as a basis of circulation wiih the Treasury
Department would be appreciated simulta
neously with their notes, wLich are in a ereat
degree under their own coutrol. It Is fortu
nate that the iundlioloers and National banks
do not possess tie influence which the h olders
of tbe national debt did in Gieat Britain fifty
years ago, or we mitibt have occasion to fear
equally disastrous results therefrom. The his
toiyof FDgland from the termination of the
Napoleonic wars in 1810 to ls'H), is one long
chronicle of the sacrifices of the many for the
benebtof the few; and when specie payments
were resumed by act of Parliament, in 1821.
there was a chuckle of triumph among the
fundholders heard amid the sighs and groans
which ascended from the vast multitude of
non-landholders who were prostrated by the
It i this delightful carnival, apparently,
which Mr. McCulloch wishes us to euiov. But
we can hardly believe that he understands his
subject when he advocates a speedy return to
specie payments. He has probably never read
the financial history of England, but be will
find abundant references to it in "Alison's His
tory of Eurooe'' aud every contemporary his
tory. We mention that of Kncland because it
is ibe only one which presents to us an example
of the gradual appreciation of a paper curreucy
from a discount as heavy at one time as fortv
percent, to par. France repudiated her assiqnats
and afterwards mandate. The old Continental
States had no fiscal syt-teni worthy of the name,
ana allowed their papermoney to become svorlh
less. 80 did the Couiederate States. We were
exposed to the same dangers, but our resources
M ere greater, and w e conquered.
We shall therefore have to restore specie pay
ments by an appreciation and not a repudiation
of the cuirency ; and if we are to escape the dis
asters which lull to tbe lot ot England, Ireland,
aud Scotland in the ordeal, we shall have to
exi rcise the greatest caution, and our financial
ministers will have to abate that ardent desire
for gold which Mr. McCulloch never wearies ol
exliib ting. We arc prosperous, and why then
clamor for an undue return to specie payments ?
L,et us trust to natural laws and leave gold una
the cuirencyto their operation, and we shall
have specie pavmeids soon enough for the wel
lure of the nation. Meanwhile, Mr. McCulloch
will do well to carefully familiarize himself with
the histoiical example to which we have re
ferred. PRESERVING CANS AND JARS.
