TIIE ACTUAL STATE OF TIIE SOUTH.
From the A'. Y. Tribune
Few men Roe what tboy wish not to Bee.
"AH quiet" is tfce ready report of those who
would have that believed, whatever may be
the truth. And thero is this also to be said
Tioleueo and bloodshed attrnot notioo, while
harmony and security mal;o no noise. If
there be twenty counties in the entire South
distracted and convulsed by Ku klax conspi
racy and outrage, we shall naturally hear more
from them than from a hundred counties
where law and order reign triumphant.
"We ask the especial attention of Southern
land holders to the lucid and evidently truth
ful statement of Sir. II. O. Luco, an iron
master, who went down to North Carolina two
years ego to smelt pig iron near Charlotte.
The county had then Kepublicau officers,
end its people were living at peace
vrith each other. Mr. Luce and
his associates employed and paid a
considerable number of both whites and
Llacks as wood-choppers, charcoal-burners,
ore-dipgers, etc, etc., and they were for a
time very popular; as they well might be.
Being teven miles from any churoh," they
Btarted a free meeting on Sundays, and, at
the request of their black laborers, soon
added a Sunday-school; but, in order to excite
no prejudice, they had separata sessions at
different hours for whites and blacks. The
latter seemed more eager, and their attend
ance rose to eighty scholars, who learned to
read first, end then learned portions of the
Scriptures. These black learners ranged
from threo years old to eighty. Nothing was
ever said of politics, and no colored person
.was ever admitted to the white school.
All went on quietly and happily nntil last
May, when the Democracy began to agitate
for the State election in August. Then com
merced Ku-klux raids, and midnight whip
pings of negroes who were conspicuous as
"radicals, ""then a white Itepublioan was like
wise whipped, and his mother and daughter
abused, and they were told that, nhould he
again vote the radical ticket, he should be
hung. Among many such outrages a young
Episcopal clergyman, who had been a Boldier
in the Kebel army, was ordered to leave the
country on pain of death, because a negro
Sunday-school was maintained by his church,
though entirely distinct from the white con
gregation. This was on Admiral Wilkes'
estate. One colored family was attacked in
its cabic, whipped, and its school-books
and Bible burned to ashes. Of course, the
object and effect were the breaking up of the
church and school.
Very soon, Mr. Luce waa served with a
notice, including a rude drawing of a man
hangirjg by the neck and a coffin, and whereof
the gist was the threat, "You are hereby or
dered to stop negrow scools and negrow
equality, or death is your portion." The
false report was circulated that he had in
cited the blaoks to retaliate on their perse
cutors. His white neighbors all advised the
closing of the Sunday-school, and he had no
choice but obedience. In the midst of these
troubles and alarms, the election took place,
and the county went Democratio by fourteen
majority. Mr. Luce has no doubt that both
county and State would bare gone Republi
can if all those who wanted to vote that way
bad dared to do so.
Of course, his enterprise languished under
Buch circumstances. The ore he was work
ing proved bad, and, by the. time he had
found and tested a better bed, and was
ready to produce eight tons of iron per day,
he was obliged to come North on business,
when his property was seized on attaohment
and closed out, and his business wound up at
a heavy loss. Messrs. David Iloadley and
William K. .Vermilye, two of our best widely
known citizens, attest Mr. Luco'a integrity
This case is but one of many. It evinces
A er.irit that is widely prevalent, in some
KtAtns. it is a smothered volcano; in others,
it is in active eruption. We have frequently
and cheerfully testified to the general quiet
maintained fn Virginia. Yet a one-armed
Union soldier, who settled in that State just
lifter the return of peace and was appointed
postmaster at a county seat, assures us that
no woman has visited his family or exohanged
any kind of courtesy with his wife, and that
no man has made him a friendly call but the
clerevman whose services his laimly attends;
and he only when the evening is veryda.ik, so
that no one outside can see lioi.
We anneal to Southern gentlemen and
land-holders to decide whether this state of
things ehsll continue. Can they afford to
have it? There is much plausible complaint
of the icnorance and incapacity of the blacks;
but how is this to bo amended it to teach
them be punished as a crime? That there are
Southrons who wish the blacks instructed,
we fullv believe: but thev are Generally of
like spirit with the Southern Unionists of
1KC.0-1. who let their States drift into secoa-
Bion at the beck of a violent, domineering
minority. We cannot doubt that the better
class of Southern ox-llebela realize that the
Kn-klux outrages are doing great harm to
their sestion: but why do they rest content
with feeliucr this without acting upon it?
As to the Northern Democratic organs, their
treatment of thia subiect is oue of the most
llagrant infamies of journalism. They know
what is the truth; they cannot help knowing
it; yet they systematically conceal and deny
it. They inigut stop inese outrages uy a
concerted and earnest remonstrance; but
they choose to let murder and torture go oa,
in the base hone that their party may profit
by them. The blood of innocent men and
wemen rests heavily on their souls.
GERMAN CITIZENS IN AMERICAN
From the K Y. Times.
Our remarks on the strango anomaly that
bo large a portion of the German vote ia
secured by the reactionary party in our prin.
cipal cities, have called forth many responses
from the press of the oonntry. Various
attempts have b6en made to explain the com
parative weakness, politically, of our intelli
gent German-American population, while the
Irish Catholics are so important a political
rower in the republic An able German-
American correspondent of thia journal has
suggested one tact which must have struok
many minds, and which promises great
chances with the German race through
out the world. The Franco-German
war has created a new power. Ger
many is henceforth the name of a State
and a nation. To a traveller, the most strik
ing and melancholy thing about Germany
has always been the entire want of a national
sentiment. Each province and kingdom had
its prejudices and local grounds of pride, but
there waa no grand general feeling of eoua
try, or even of race. National sentiment haa
a mysteiious but powerful inflnence in raising
the self-reppect of each individual. Every
citizen, every man and woman in a State,
is nf mora vnln to the world, and nor ion
Fcious of dignity, if he has the feeling that
he belongs to a great and honored State to
a leading and powerful rnoe. The individual
reflects aDd assumes the glories of his com
munity or cuntry.
Till within the'pafil few years the Gerroims
were lamentably deficient in this conscious
ness. There was no kouro of country among
them; little pride of race. The tipper cliissos
were citizens of the world; the lower, of their
petty dukedoms and kingdoms. With Sedan,
however, and the new German Empire, re
viving that of Charlemagne, begins a now
national consciousness: a proud sense that
the broken German populations are e-t lenglh
united, and must lead civilization for centu
ries to come. A Frnss-iao, or Saxon, or Ba
varian, or Hessian, is no longer merely a citi
zen of his own province; he belongs to the
grander and more glorious community of the
whole German race. This new feeling of
race and country is destined to affect the
Germans in every part of the globe; it reaches
them here; it changes their relative position
with other races; it affects the opinions of
others towards them. Even on American
Boil, the victory of Sedan will give a nevr
dignity to each German citizen of our lio
pnblic, and a greater political unity to our
whole Teutonio population.
This cannot but be felt in all our politics.
As the Yolkaf rental says, in a very intelligent
article on this subject, the little power of the
German-Americans in our politics is, in a
large measure, their own fault the result of
their incessant and petty personal jealousies
and feuds among themselves. But, with the
new German unity, and ' the sense of their
power as a race, we may hope for greater dig
nity, self-respect, and united aotion from our
Germans. They will feel a pride now in sup
porting their own leaders and their own ideas.
They will not be, as they have been, the slaves
of the most reactionary and corrupt and
priestly party which exists in any civilized
country. They will think more for them
selves, and stand up together for our best
ideas of progress and liberty. The sham of
"Democracy" will not deceive them as it has
done. They will join the friends of reform
and freedom in this country, and no longer be
led by the ignorant Irish and cunning Tam
llie position, too, of our
friends must change towards
many of the
Teutonio habits and customs. It is certainly
apparent that the innocent German amuse
ments, the love of out-door pleasure, ;ithe
fondness for musio, the social quaffing of
lager-beer and Bhine wines, have in no way
sapped either the physical or mental power of
the race; that they have not prevented (even
if 'they have not aided; them in attaining the
most exact discipline, the most thorough
popular education, the most solid military
power, ana tne very neaa and front of the
worlds civilization. War is the ut
most test of a nation s moral and physical
ower. Under it, France has . exploded
ike a pricked balloen. Under it,
Germany comes forth more solid, welded, and
compact than ever, i'eoplo who sneer at the
German habits must ask themselves what
other habits make better men. At all events,
we, as members of the Republican party, cau-
not expect to make New England l'uritans of
the jovial Deutscner. We must take theoi as
they are. Perhaps they would have been
stronger and freer, if they had never indulged
in laser beer, much tobacco, and acid wines.
l'erbarn a mote serious -riow of life woulj
have been belter for them.
Still we cannot reform them; they
do not want to be reformed; and, in future,
they are less likely to want to be reformed
than ever. We must accept them, and if pos
sible make some reasonable compromiso
between their habits and Ataerioan habits.
We need them in our great struggle with a
worse than French corruption, and a tyranny
more enslaving than was ever Napoleons.
With them as allies, we may yet see an Amo
rican Sedan, where the allied forces of the
New York Ring, the foreign priesthood, and
the Southern Democracy shall be overthrown,
and freedom and honesty triumph for a gone
ration. WASHINGTON GRANT.
From the N. Y. World.
Between the first and the last of our long
line of Presidents thero are some points of
resemblance, and some of contrast. Both
were generals who had commanded the na
tional armies in a successful war, and both
were elected to the Presidency in conso
quence of their military reputation. Neither
had mnch previous experience in civil affairs,
Washington having served for a lew moutns
as a member of the Continental Congress and
presided in the Convention that formed the
Constitution, and Grant having filled for a
few months the office of Secretary of War
under President Johnson. Washington, like
Grant, waa no orator, although he could and
did make occasional speeches with great
dignity and propriety; whereaa the few half
inch shreds of vapid commonplace uttered by
General Grant in the presence of audiences
nive hia friends reason to regret his meagre
and costive deviations from total silence.
These, we believe, are the only points of
The contrasts are so many that a fall enu
meration would be tedious. As a commander
Washington always lacked men and am ma
nition, and his shoeless army often marched
with bleeding feet over frozen ground and
slept in tne open air witnoui tents or
blankets. He accomplished great results
with slender means, lie also differed from
Grant in refusing to accept any pay for hia
services, either as General or President, be
yond the reimbursement of hia expenses, of
which he kept a scrupulous aooount. He took
no gifts, appointed no relations to office,
spent no time in junketing excursions, was
no dog-fanoier, and though he had an eye for
gooa norses, naa none or tne tastes or a
jockey. In composing hia Cabinet he se
lected the most gifted statesmen, like Jefi'er
son ana Hamilton, entertaining no mean
jealousy lest he should be overtopped and
outsnone by eminent abilities. Instead of
intriguing for a re-election, he reluctantly
yielded to the wishes of his country and the
urgency of his friends in consenting to take
the office for a second term.
We hasten over these and pass many other
points of contrast to come to one which more
nearly touches the publio welfare and the
perpetuity of our free institutions. A few
weeks ago, when thejbuda were beginning to
swell on the trees at Mount Vernon, General
Grant went, on a bright upring day, with a
small retinue of friends, to visit the tomb of
Washington. Instead of this cheap aot of
ostensible homage, prompted as muoh by his
restless love of amnsement and reoreatloa aa
by reverence for the memory of a great pa
tiiot, we wish General Grant had bothoQL-ht
him to look into the history and try to im
bibe the spirit of the first and purest
of our Presidents. There is not much to
be learnt by gazing at sepulchral mason
worn ty a siona, nnimpreasionabie man;
lut we were plad to learn of even this
slight recognition of the public virtues
of Washington. It la the duty of General
Client to imitate the mnn whose character
be makes a publio ishow of revering, lie
holds the same office, ia charged with the
fame duties, and as thia visit took place
while ho was pressing Congress to pass the
Ku-klnx bill and clothe hiui with extraordi
nary powers, ho might have profitably spent
me tiours 01 mat, uay in musing on tua steps
token by Washington for snpprossin the
great insurrection in Western Pennsylvania,
which was infinitely more defiant and for
midable than the Ku-klux, even as described
in the fabnloiu majority report of the Souato
Committee ol investigation, as any one mny
be satisfied by comparing their revort with
II. ill ll'L.-.l.., T

me was nctiiiDR wnich Washington moro
Fed alonsly shunned than the exercise, or even
tne sppenrauce ol exercising arbitrary power.
To be sere, Wa-binston had not anv such
authority as is conferred on General Grant by
the K-klux bill, end we are very sure that
he woald never have asked for it, as Grant
bos, nor exercised it if it had been conferred
upon him. He was Glow to employ even the
power he possessed under a moderate and
constitutional law, declining a resort to fcreo
till every means of conciliation had been ex
hausted. The difference in the laws is worth
a passing notice, althoh General Grant has
most to Issrn from thi spirit in whiGh the
earlier lavr was executed. The Ku-klux bill
makes General Grant Jthe sole judge
as to when an exigency has arisen which
justifies he employment of force.
This is a pewer which our early legislators
70u1a not oonrer even upon Washington,
although he was not a candidate for rn-eloc-
tien, as Gensral Grant to. The President of
that day would no more have ventured to em
ploy the military, on his own sole warrant, to
eniorce the Inderal laws than to suppress do
mestic violence in a Stats. In neither oaso
was he permitted to act on his own initiative
and judge for himself when the exigency had
arisen. Before he could send troops to put
down domestic violence, he must be appliod
to tor assistance by the State autho
rities. And he could not employ
soldiers . to enforce the laws until one
of the Federal judges had. certified that it was
necessary. The unconstitutional Ku-klux
bill permits General Grant to do both without
the concurrence of any other judgment than
his own; and not only to use the army and
militia whenever he pleapes, but to suspend
the habeas corpus and proclaim martial hiw
without any other restriction than hii own
good pleasure. To show how differently re
sistance to the laws was met under Washing
ton, we will make a brief quotation from hi
tirst proclamation relating to the whisky in
surrection: At that early period (the purest and bright
est in our annals), when the framers of the
Constitution, who- best understood it, held
tne most prominent and influential 'positions
in the Government, they would as soon have
"brooked the eternal devil as- arbitrary
power, even in the handa of a patriot like
Washington. XUe rresident indeed held the
sword, but bo could not draw it from the
scabbard until another and more disinter
ested judge hid declared it necessary. Some
body else must decide the exigency had
arisen in a foreign war, Congress; in sup
pressing domestic violence in a Str.te, its
Legislature, or Governor; in enforcing
Federal laws, a ederalF indae.
The hand that grasped the hilt of
the sword was poweiloss and paralyzed
until some other voice tnan the President's
said, "Draw !" If combinations were formed
to resist the execution of the lav-u of Con
gress, the President could nut use a soldier
until a Federal judge had first certified that
the combinations were too powerful to bo re
sisted by the Marshal and his fOso. So im
portant was it deemed to forecloses the Presi
dent from using the military power to pro
mote liis personal objectsn lut a servile,
partisan, lick-spittle Congress has conferred
upon General Grant authority not merely to
use military foree, but to declare martial
law and suspend the habeas corpus, with no
other judge of the necessity than himself,
expecting and desiring him to employ this
tremendous power to seonre ma own re-election.
The point to which we desiro to call the
particular attention of General Grant ia the
unfeigned reluctance of Washington to use
even the restrained authority put in hia handa
by Congress. Even after Judge Wilson had
certified the necessity, and Washington had
issued his proclamation, he spent nearly two
moniiis in enorta at conciliation before put
ling the militia under marching orders. lie
sent commissioners to the disaffected district
with oilers of full pardon and oblivion if the
insurgents would abandon their opposition to
the law. Ana when at last he reluctantly set
the troops in motion, he sent with them mes
sengers bearing the olive branch, and the
whole diflionlty waa settled w ithout firing a
shot. Would that we had any Ground for
hoping that General Grant will act in a simi
