"GOmo FOR THE ROOT OF THK EVIL." j
Several days ago, we deprecated the re- '
ticeuec of some Republican papers, in rela- j
tion to the manner in which political ad
venturers had outraged the people of the i
Southern States. For this, we received the j
flattering encomiums of our neighbor, the
Richmond Enquirer, with a becoming sense
of gratitude, felt only by those who eat too j
often the bitter bread of censure. We are j
willing to go as far as the Enquire, , in our
denunciation of dishonesty everywhere, i
but we can't be switched to a side track, to
take on contraband freight at all. The
Enquirer's leader of this morning, is cvi- !
dently written in bad humor, and sounds \
more like the ravings of some scolding old !
woman, than the well considered cxpres- !
sions of sensible men.
Not satisfied with denouncing the dis
honest members of the Republican party, it j
goes " slashing about" with a fierce and j
terrible looseness, less dangerous to others
than itself, and nearly as funny to
behold as "Old Hurricane," or Mar- j
gery Oargery on a rampage. Tt treats ,
as " corrupt, miserable and mean" the en- I
tire Republican concern, and calls upon its
associates North to manage the "head" antl
leave the "tail" to the treatment of tlie
During the war, the head was left to the
South, and the tail to the copper-heads of
j the North. The Enquirer knowing the
Radical concern to be unlike the wasp o'
hornet, proposes to deal with the tail, while
its ijuandom friends of the North, are invited
to swap ends awhile.
We rather admire the caution of our co
temporary in thus selecting the least dan
gerous extremity, but doubt its ability to
persuade its Northern allies to take hold of
the head. They are smart enough to pre
fer "tail holt" themselves, and are not go
ing lo "swap ends," even at the solicitation
ol tie- Enquirer.
We have no doubt of the willingness of
the Enquirer and its party to rid the South,
not only of the carpet-bagger and scalawag,
but of the negro also ; PROVIDED, the cop
perheads of the North could render such
"efficient aid" as to destroy the head of
Republicanism at Washington. "Rut
there's the rub." Will the "head" be
destroyed f Vie reckon not; even with j
the powerful aid of the nuturalisi of the
Enquirer, whose familiarity with science I
ena.'os it to name all the carrion birds |
with a facility truly refreshing.
Not satisfied with its war upon "thieving |
carpet-baggers," nor with a fair discussion
of the wrongs actually committed by dis
horn .' m, n, Democrats as well as Republi
cans, it strikes at the whole body politic
and calls upon its Northern friends to come
to its assistance. We must be pardoned for
paiting company with the Enquirer. So I
long as it confined itself to the track, we I
glided smoothly and peacefully on together, ]
but when it attempts to run oft' and, like j
the man-thai "butt the bull off the bridge," j
"bursts its skull" yelling for aid to kill Re" |
publicanism, we beg to be excused. Cood" I
bye, sweet companion ; we leave the pleas- |
ant task to the New York Commercial Ad
vertiser and yourself, and won't quarrel \
about the profits. Hear our amiable co
teinporary, gentle reader, as it thus des
cants upon the great party of freedom, I
which has so wisely guided the destiny of I
the American nation for years, and is likely
to, for many years to come :
For more than live rears this Jacobinical fac
tion has lorded it over the laud, and made civil
and military anarchy the coustitaiian of tins Re
public., ruder its ba'leliil auspices the great work
of reorganization in the Southern States was
committed to the hands of brutal, ignorant b*r
bartana and malignant apostates, renegades, and
edventuiere. Ily Llieir instrumentality was
brought about the frighifol scenes which are
witnessed to-day iv several of our unfortunate
sis.er Slates, conspicuous among which is poor
devoted South Carolina—tlie barriers of civiliza
tion nnd social order dismantled, broken down,
and scattered lo tlie winds, and the direst
calamity fastened upon them which could pos
sibly befuil an euligliiiued and christian commu
nity, the calamity of being domineered by semi
savages and outlaws from every sentiment and
principle of humanity. They were lhe men who
pined the yoke of military' subjugation on our
necks, while they incited and s.iiiiulaledtliii poor
deluded negro to hatred and rageiigaiust the only
real friends bi lias ever had on this earth | and
I hey let loose upon us from unknown boles and
corners and caverns of the ennli that countless
Hock of obscene and filthy carrion birds, " ravens,
crows, and kites,"
" That fly o'er our heads and downward look on
As we were sickly prey.'"
This is the monster with whom we have to
■ oiocci, and if any of our Northern Republican
frtenda desire to render us efficient aid, let "them
aim their blows at ils head iv Washington, and
leave ue lo manage Ils tail. Kid us of that hor
rid abortion of Radical misrule, under which the
vi mile land reeks and riots with abominations as
fool and loathsome us any that lie buried beneath
the Dead Sea, and we will take cure that neither
. n let-bagger nor scalawag shall ever more vex
ouriieople. The liniely article, of the Ailverlim-r

Records and Pkivatb I'apers — A
siderable portion of the loss by the great
lire in Chicago resulted from the destruc
tion of public records and private papers.
A 1! the public records relative to real estate
titles were insecurely protected, and, as a
einsci|ueuce, were destroyed, while the
records in private hands, to a very groat
extent, shared the same fate. Fortunately,
some real estate lawyers had made a busi
ness of making transcripts of public records,
and providentially preserved their memo- I
raada. liy this means titles to real estate :
may lie fixed, but it will be at a great ex
pense to the property holders. This fact |
should not be lost on New York, for it i
is a well-known fact that our public record '
building is not only insecure in its construe- I
tion, but has actually been on fire several [
times. The importance to business men
of providing themselves with the means nl
properly protecting their valuable papers
dues not seem to be appreciated. JMany a I
business man in Chicago would to-day be j
comparatively well off, notwithstanding
the destruction of his buildings, liad he but \
preserved the records of his business. But j
trusting to so-called fireproof buildings,
papers representing millions of dollars were |
carelessly left loose in desks, or confided to j
cheap and insecure safes. Could these pa
pers to-day be resurrected from their ashes, '
Chicago would have no occasion to call up- i
on the whole world for aid, but could man- j
icat at which iron will melt and run away—
)tit hundreds of merchants have testified
that all the property saved to them from
estructioo was that which was preserved
>y Herring's safes. As a rule, those who
lad exercised the ordinary business pre
caution of putting their valuable papers
ito their sales at the close of business on
Stturday, found Ihem in good condition on
Vednesomy or Thursday, after the contla
;ration had swept away the buildings in
■Inch the safes were located. So Salaman
( erlike were they found, that in one instance
person, in putting away his papers hur
riedly, bad accidentally locked up among
them a box of parlor matches. The flames
destroyed the building, the walls fell in up
on the safe, confining it, as it were, in an
oven; fire burned and smoldered upon it
for days, yet when it was properly cooled)
oft" and openedj not only were all the papers
confided to it lornd in perfect condition,
but even the box of matches was preserved
in/ml, and served' its owner to light his
pipe with. No business man can afford '
hereafter to trust his private papers to mar- i
ble or stone walls, or to the custody of!
others. He must look out for them him- I
self, and in doing so must himself provide j
the means for their safe custody. This
lesson of Chicago should be of immediate !
service, not only lo public organizations,
but to every business man. Public and
private records form a large portion of the
wealth of every community, and should

While ihe Republican party is triumphant j

st history of this proud old Common

political liberty, she would ostracise every I
generous impulse of her sons and brand as |
traitors and ragamuffins those who would |
concede equality before the law to all.

Hustings Court.—Tn this court on j
Saturday, a nolle prosetpii was entered in j
the case of William Thomas James, in
dicted for unlawful gaming.
A lso in three similar ca,ses against differ-
Saturday night, a fire broke out in a stable
rented by William Peasley, in rear of Cap
tain Samuel Maccubbin's commission house,
on Franklin street, near the Old Market. I
The building was quickly burned, but ow
ing to the promptness with which the alarm
was given and answered, the fire did not I
spread to the numerous framed houses in I
the neighborhood. It was undoubtedly the
york of an incendiary. Two horses be- I
longing to Mr. Peasley were severely
burned in getting them out of the stable;
one of them is so badly injured, that he I
will probably die. The rumor that a col
ored man was burned in the stable has no
foundation in fact.
The alarm at half-past twelve o'clock on
iimday, was occasioned by the discovery of I
fire in Mr. McGwire's school-house, corner
of Franklin and Adams streets. Two or j
three of the desks were burned, involving !
a loss of between $25 and $50, but tlie j
flames were arrested before further damage '
ensued. This, too, is supposed to have ■
been the work of an incendiary.
Last night, at hall-past eleven o'clock,
another alarm was sounded. It was occa- !
sioned by the burning of some rubbish in '
a yard on Third street, immediately oppo- j
site the engine-house. The fire was ex- |
languished before any damage was done.
A Desperado Caught.—Detectives
Rogers and Dan Wren yesterday arrested
in this city and turned over to a United
State's Marshal from North Carolina, J.
(Juinton Bryant, who has the reputation
■of being a most desperate outlaw. He is
charged'with murder, committed in North
Carolina, and with other offences of a de-i
precatory character, which render him I
quite an object of interest to the officers of
A few months ago this same person was j
arrested in this city and delivered to De- I
puty U. S. Marshal llester, on a requisition j
from the Governor of North Carolina, to
answer the charge of murder. At Raleigh i
he left Mr. Bennett "with the bag to hold."
He next turned up in Scottsville, this j
State, where, in resisting the officers of the !
law engaged in quelling a disturbance. ,
Bryant received a shot through the lungs, !
from which wound he is now suffering. It i
is to be hoped the officer who now has this
desperado iv change will have better luck j
with him than did Mr. Hester, and that ]
justice may have an early opportunity to

la ! ha ! ha ! Old man Jack Cook, of
''ranklin once said to us, on the morning
after a big spree, "Umph, Woltz ! Last
night 1 felt like a roaring lion —this morn

reversed. A short time since when he was
a "scalawag," the Conservatives denounced
iim"as a poodle dog; but row tl at he has
become a Democart, and in their estimation
a gentleman, they proclaim him a roaring
lion. But we incline to the opinion, never
icless, that he will never devour any poor
"Rail" from the Speaker's chair.
