Thc Removul of Stanton-The Corres
pondence in Full.
Thc long expected order suspending Secre
tary Stanton was is-u.-d yesterday morning,
and Geuoral G rant was assigned to the charge
. of the War UIKCJ ad interim, with ins-true
lions to enter at. once upon the discharge of
thc duies of Acting Secretary of War. On
Sunday thc President announced that the
sU-p'-nsiou would not take pkco until Tues
day, and cousetpUiiitly thu promulgation of
the order yesterday created a little surprise.
Immediately upon receiving the order front
I he President Gen. Graut proCrjcd^d to the
War Department and informed Mr. Stanton
that he was ready to lelieve him. Mr. Stan
ton without hesitation retired from his oilice.
and Gen. Graut assumed control. Many of
the subordinate officers of the Department
were not aware of the change that had taken
place until after office hours, while others
ftupp)acd th'it Mr.Stanton hal at last oftvred
his resignation, which supposion gained
ground from thc fae: that Mr. Stanton Sfttr
io the President a letter of retnons;rance, the
cont-'nts of which not being known, were pre
sumed to be a lorm.il resignation. It is gen
erally assumed that G?n?rai Grant's tenure ot
ofiicc will bo short, as it is well known thai
the President ofl'ertd the porlf dio of the Wai
Department to General Jam^s li. Steadman,
of Ohio, more than eighteen mouths ago, and
that he telegraphed to New Orleans n quest
ing that cffiet?r to proceed to Washington im
mediately. General Steadman has received
a leave of absence frotn his cilice of Int- mal
lleven ac Collector, but was detained in New
Orleans by illness iu his family, and the Pres
itlent, in the urgency of the circumstances
as ue red from his stand point, was ccmpelled
to telegraph him in person.
Thc following is n verbatim copy of thc cor
respondence between the President, the Sec
retary of War and General Grant :

The Dangers of Negro Rule--Another
The following leading article appears in the
New York Herald of Sunday. It expresses
thc opinions of a paper which cares nothing
for consistency, bot always endeavours to re
flect public opinion. The Herald would not
have taken so bold a stand, bad. it not felt
sure that its views would meet with thc sup
port of the majority of the Northern people :
The scornful manner in which the negro
President of the South Carolina Radie d Con
vention accepted the rcsiguation of a white
delegate, who could not subscribe to t he plat
form adopted, was a most signiflcaut evideuce
of the course about to be adopted by the ne
gro majority in the South. The intentions of
the Radicals iu Congress, or rather their an
ticipation that the colored voters would be
ruled by a mere handful of adventurers, prom
ise to be rudely thwarted evon while the ex
periment of negro suffrage is still in its in
cipiency. There are none so blind as those
who will not see, and it is utter folly for any
one to pretend that Mr. Sambo Jefferson, of
Rutland district, will quietly submit to having
all the offices held by a few white men, when
he and bis dusky compeers are the voting
majority. Tho dwire for political elevation,
beyond the mero privilege of casting a vote,
i-i made palpable by the fact of there being
seve:al colored candidates already in th
lield, while one aspirant forasoa! in Congress
is even now stumping the State of South
Has not this experiment of negro enfran
chisement aud while dislYaucbisument gone
quite far enough, and is there not material
danger to the Uuited States, in permitting
ten Slates to be mied by an ignorant race,
aided by a few unprincipled white men?
This question must not be regarded rn the
light of a present political necessity. We
must look to the future, and reflect whether
good can come from our present policy. In
the State of L-uisianu there are in round
numbers one hundred thousand white men
above the age of twenty years. Of this num
ber not forty-three thousand have been per
mitted to register. On the other hand thc
male negroes of the same age, who number
barely ninety-six thousand have registered
fully eighty thousand votes. Tbese ligures
are appalling, although they can be easi.'y ex
plaiucd. No white mau was permitted to
register who held the petty office of parish
constable, city policeman, notary public (a
purely business ellice), or village alderman.
And'while this rigorous sj'stem was pursued
towards the whites, untutored negroes, and
cvcu coloured n^iuors, it has been asserted,
were permitted to register without question.
The result, then, of the Reconstruction law.
in one of the richest States vt the Union will
be the inauguratiou of a State government
filled with negro officials, and counterpart
prcseulmeuts, of Parson Brownlow and the
Radical Huunicutt. Nay, mure : we learn
that negro members of the New Orleans city
government have been demanded by the Re
publican leaders and a'ready appointed by
Genera! Sheridan. Wethus perceive the uat
ural result of a policy of repression on the
part of the government.
What has becu said of Louisiana must bc
applied to all of the other Southern States,
excepting, perhaps, Mississippi and Arkansas,
where the law has been liberally construed
by General Ord. The sum total, however,
will be the same. Now, the question h,
whether the whites of the ex-rebel Statcswill
cousent to be ailed by negroes, and whither
the people of the North will compel such con
sent. In thc first instance it would be well
to reflect that na case can he cited where a
superior raes eyer submitted to tue rule of
an inferior one. But placing aside this point,
which is, after all, but a question of opinion,
so far as it relates to superiority and inferior
ity, let us take thc question in auotber seusc.
Thc relative position of the whites and ne
groes in the.South is and will be that of tax
payer and voter. This is the whole point in
a nut shell. Will thc ruling negro be provi
dent of the mouey that he has not to supply,
or will he, confident in his numerical superi
ority, vote just .-.uch taxes as his fancy or ca
price shall dicla'e ? This is a point thal; can
not be overlooked. We very much fear that
a most unhappy state of affairs will bo the
logical consequence of negro domination.
Will the whites-land owners, tax-payers and
sole dependence of the States for their mate
rial prosperity-quietly submit to thc rule of
an ignorant a?d poverty stricken majority,
headed by men whose desire for office is
prompted solely by their impecuniosity ..' If
regarded purely as a political move, we still
perceive danger in this placing white men un
der rhe heels of negroes. Look at the policy
through any lighr, and evils ever appear. The
aggressive spirit of the blacks, and the impla
cable hostility of tho Southern whites towards
them as political equals, are most potent argu
ments against pc^isteucc in a cjurse which
must inevitably lead to a collision between
the two races of a most dangerous character.
We do not believe that the people of thc
North are ready or willing to subscribe to
negro rule. Thc day when they will welcome
Fred Douglass as Vice-Prcsidont of the Uni
ted States, and John M. Langston as Senator
from Virginia has not yet como, nor is it
likely to come for a long number of years.
The negro must, therefore, be made to under
stand that although he will never again be
reduced to slavery, he must rest content with
his personal freedom, and not aspire to that
political and social equality which cannot fail
in thc end to bring him more blows than hon
ours. We repeat that thc people of the Nort h
are not ready for negro rule, and if thc old
copperhead leaders could be induced to retire
from the arena aud leave the field clear for
fresh ideas, a new organization, headed by
Grant, and having for its platform the supre
macy of the white man in the affairs of th'iH
government, would, at thc Presidential elec
tion next year, sweep the Radical party from
existence, and restore the country to peace
and prosperity. The" dangers are many, but
until the DemocraCv cast aside their present
leaders we eau hope for no change from the
grievous errors which have been made by
The l>nty of the Hour,
The Thirty-ninth Congress, controlled by
the Radical Rump, passed .a law directing
that all government printing in the South
should be ai ven exclusively .to Radical organs.
General Pope, the military satrap of this
District, has recently issued his royal ukase,
requiring all the C'vil and military oflicrs of
the State to advertise exclusively in tho col
umns of reconstruction papers. The Loyal
League of this city, which, through the power
of the military, has control of the city govern
ment, eject from ofiico and patronage those
who are not en rapport with Radicalism. In
dividual Loyal Leaguers carry this spirit of
prescription into all the transactions of life,
and neither support or patronize any tracie,
profession or calling which is not Radical.
Js it not time that the conservative element
in the SUte should profit by these examples,
and confine their support and patronage to
those who are opposed to negro supremacy ?
Should not every white man who mels that
his own js the superior, and should be the
controlling race, determine to employ, patron
ize, trade, or support none but those of both
races who are opposed to the Radicals and
their proscriptive policy? This system Las
been commenced by the Radicals. Tncy aro
pressing it to the utmost extremity. Shall
we not, for our own protection and safety, be
govcrned by the same feelings-those of race,
color and interest ?--Chronicle & Sentinel.
PROBABLE REMOVAL, ol' THE MILITARY
COMMANDERS IN THE SOUTH.-I have reason
to think that thc next step, now that Stanton
has been removed, will be the removal of
Sheridan, and probably the other four milita
ry commanders. It is Mr. Johnson's desire
tb placp more Conservative men in authority
over tba conquered Southern brethren-men
who will execute the lavs of Congress with
ts little harshness and show of d?spfitjsm as
practicable. To do this effectively it is're
garded ftf judicious to make a complete change

Appointments by the Governor.
Mr. EDWIN R CUNNINGHAM and Capt. W. W
WILSON havo been appointed Magistrates for
Edgefield District-the former for tho town of
Hamburg, and tho latter to fill a vacanc;* in tho
Horse Crcok Board of Commissioners.
As yet wc havo not been able to procuro thc
results of registration at the precincts in our Dis
trict already vixitcd by the Registrars. The
work, bejjun during tho past week, will last, with
more or less continuance, until the first of Octob-r.
Aud again we souk to urge upon tho minds of .our
people ?hat there cannot possibly be an excuse
for tho abandonment of tho obvious and serious
duty of Registration. As wo have said before,
the citir.cn who ahnll prove a delinquent on this
occasion, who from nay consideration shall fail to
have himself registered, will stand in the attitude
of one who deserts his po?t in a moment of great
peril to his causo and country. His rights, his
property, his every interest, call him to the duty
of Ro/istratiou. Remember that tho Radicals
aro thoroughly organized. Every voter whom
they hope to infiaence in the coming election,
will be brought to the registry lists. Shall wc,
whose interests are so momentous, be less active
and energetic than they ? Is there a single white
man in the District whose time is so much occu
pied ai to be unable to give a few hours to the
servioe of his country, bis family, and the success
of human liberty ?
He who fails to register will have no voice in
vjtiug for or against a Convention; no voice in
olecting good men to tho Convention in case a
Cinvention is culled; and, thorefore, caunot ex
pect good men in th? Convention, nor a good
Constitution from it.

Rains and Crops,--Disasters and
During tho past woek wo have had plentiful
supplies of rain ; indeed a little too much. At
Orangeville, on Thursday morning last, tho dam
above thc Factory broke, and about four hundrod
and fifty fcot ^of it was carried away. Two or
three bridges were swept oft* and the Factory
grounds inundated. Apart from this, no other
damage was dono. At Vaucluse tho oil house and
blacksmith shop, and the bridge ovor horse Creek
were carried off. At Kalma Mills and Bath Mills
the dams were also broken. On Horn's Creek
too, nearer to us, the damage bas been considera
ble. Wo learn that at Fuller's, at Bottix's, and at
Devora's Mills, tho dams yielded to the floods.
As yet, however, wo have heard of but little
injury to crops from tbeso overflows. And al
though the good farmers will grumble when all
things do not come exactly to thoir notion, ytt
wo art inclined to judge from tho luxuriant ap
pearance of cotton, com, peas and rcgetables
that they (tho farmers) must feol themselves in a
tolerably high state of accommodation. Splendid
crops are undoubtedly growing and ripening in

If thero ig ono thing, more than another, which
would provo cheering in tho midst of our many
misfortunes and discouragements, it would bc to
witness a mighty rousing of the public mind of
South Carolina in behalf of those enterprises
which are necessary to the developemont of her
latent riches; richos which are incalculable in
value. The encouragement of immigration, the
increase of labor, the promotion of agriculture,
tho building of railroads, the erection of manufac
tories, the improvement of navigation, the erec
tion of telegraph lines, the increase of schools
and educational facilities; to all these, and to
many minor but important enterprises, tho pjople
of South Carolina should now ' i fully alivo. It
pains us to say, however that they aro not thus
And in this connect,?j, we call special atten
tion to tho admirable speech of Gen. Jons A.
WAGBSER, delivered lately before a meeting of
our public-spirited fellow-citizens of Newborry.
Gen. WAGERER, ns is well known, is, by appoint
ment of tho Legislature, State Commissioner of
the Bureau of Immigration. IIo is a vastly e f
ergctic, intelligent nnd practical citizen of Char
leston-a native German, or of immediate German
descent. His efforts towards inducing European
immigration to South Carolina are well organized,
wise, manly, persistent. But without the help,
strong and unanimous, of therpeopleof the State,
ho can do but little.
And why is it, that, when negro labor is so un
certain, and when wc pay such burdensome taxes
upon idle and unimproved lands, we yet sit silent
and idle ? Arc.we listlessly hoping that some
thing will turn np ? Something is continually
turning up to thc advantage of those who employ
And how is it (hat we can best help Gen. WAG
r.sr.n nnd the all-important causo of immigration ?
Certainly through combinations of landholders.
Combination is to bo the great secrot of success
in developing the wealth of South Carolina.
Sparse as is our population compared with our
territory, and small as is our morned capital com
pared with our resources, wo have numbers, power
and money enough in South Carolina this day to
accomplish every scheme of internal improvement
we need, if we only combine. Individually we
can do nothing. Proper combinations will ac
complish everything. Combinations, of cotton
planters cm erect cotton manufactories in every
cotton district. Combinations of planters, mer
chants, stock-men, land-holders, capitalists, rail
road men, and municipal corporations, can build
all needed railroads. Anil combinations of land
holders can procure immigration and labor to an
: definite extent.
Our planter;, as a general thing, are not pleased
with free negro labor. And certainly, under ex
isting circumstances, there is but little prospect
of the negro becoming more industrious, and more
respectful in his deportment. Iudced so long as
they arc under Radical influence and leadership
wo can expect from thom bit little good.
We propose thereforo a Landholder's Conven
tion of th? planters and farmers of Kdgefield
District for the purpose of inducing foreign im
migration. If a few prominent landholders would
move in this matter, all, whether their acres be
many or few, would fall in, and work with good
But there it not a moment to be lost. Even
should wo begin now, und work with all our
tnigbt, we shall not moro than make the proper
arrar.getucnts by tho fall of 1S68. Though hun
dreds of planters might supply themselves with
vjlurble and availablo whito labor by the coming
spring. Let us begin in time, and thousands will
bc added to our population, much strength to our
labor, and millions to our wealth, within a year
from this date.

in various parts of the Cotton States with the de

the tax that has boen paid upon Cotton. It is
intended to bring tho subject before the Commis

fellow was thus honored is more than doubtful,
but let him speak :
"When I broached that matter to bim he cut
me rather short, though in a very gentlemanly
way. Ho laughed immoderately when I asked
him as to the opinion of the Southern people
with referenco to the reconstru?tion acts passed
by Congress. He answered mc, however, in seven
words, and I would to God that Andrew Johnson
could havo heard the reply as impassioaately.
Mr. Davis, with a waive of the hand, which, al
though not intendod to be gesticular, carried with
it an emphasis which I shall never forget, when
in a measured voice he said, ' We have nothing to

From Oar Memphis Corresponden
MEMPHIS, TBWI , Aug. lOt?, 18(
Mn. EDITOR:-The election for Governor,
members of Congress, and of tho State Leg
ture, about which there has been eo -much fe
ish anxiety, so many hopes and so many f
hu at length come off; and our worst fears
been realized in (ho election of Brownlow ant
entire Radical ticket. So far as neara from,
Radical party have elected their candidate
overwhelming majorities. Brownlow clain
majority of 30,000 in tho eu tiro State; but
that number is probably a fair estimate of
triumph of the advocates of corruption, mean
and profligacy, over the standard-bearers of
orly and justice alfte to all. For Mie first
in tho history of Memphir, aa olection has I
curried by men unable to reid oven tho nann
their candidates. The entire white Radical
in Memphis and its suburbs does not exceed 1
yet Brownlow received 4,200 votes, 3,500 b
cast by tho newly enfranchised citizens of Afr
descent. Tho entiro white v"te, if cist agi
Brownlow, could not bavo materially changed
result. All told it did not exceed 2700; wbi
the 3,500 negro votes coat for Brownlow and
party, 1500 more blacks would have beon ad
bad the polls remained open one hour after
time prescribed by law. At least that nun
with tickets in their hands were swarming al
tbs polls like the locusts of Egypt when the ?
hoar of four o'clock arrived. The Radicals o
shot tbs mark. They feared to trust the cou:
nogroes 'o their employers and ordered them
tho city to vote. Half the polling places i
allotted to them ; but, these proving insuffici
they crowded iato the jr bi tc precincts and mom
lized them to tho exclusion ef the white?, 1
drcds of whom were elbowed from the polls,
after waiting hours for the black iaundntio
subside, finally left in disgust without eas
their ballots. The Registration Commissio
with the most unblushing impudence, issued
tifie&tes of citizenship ac the Ballot Box to
groes who had just loft thuir employers in Mi;
sippi and Arkansas to vote for Mr. Brownlow
Memphis. This, together with their lying thn
and specious pron: isca to the native blacks,
elected the Radical ticket by an overwhelm
majority; and Tennessee for two year? mor
doomed to an existence to which the vilest ie
tude is preferable. And the greater and be
part of the population, the bone and siuow of
State, will still have to support *> gorernmen
which they have n 3 voice.
The election came* off on Thursday, Aug.
and by Saturday n::ght, 3rd, inst, 500 black?, \
on the 1st were struck with excessivo ad
ration for Brownlow, were cast adrift by tl
employer*, who tell them they must look to tl,
friends (?) for employment now. On this acco
the Freedmen's Bureau, nn orticlo of furnit
heretofore almost totally discarded by tho blue
has since bein in great demur.,1; and Uncle Sal
agents are eontinutJIy beset by these unfortun
followers of Radicalism to procure them sit
tions. It would be well for people of all
Southern States to consider well the condition
Tennessee, with her reconitructio?, before decidi
how to cast their votes in the -coming ele'-tb
throughout the Soi.th ; and to choose bctweei
Sickles, a Sheridan or a Pope on the one hai
with military mle, and a Brownlow, (or his lik
on the other hand, with tho blessings of peace
which Tennessco now cDjoys.
In this connection, I would state that the spee
of ilon. B. II. HOI, of Georgi? is highly co
mended by the leading men of this City a
State, who heartily endorse bil views on rece
struction, and who would adviso their brcthr
of tho South to give their votes for " no conve
tion ;" and to rest satisfied fur a timo with mi'.:
ry rule, in preforenco to a civil goveramont pi
sided over by men who would roo them in pock
and deprivo them of all their rights of citizcosh:
In the midst of our own overthrow and degi
dation, however, I am glad to say that not all
oar friends are involved. The election in Kt
tacky has resulted ia a Democratic triumph, by
majoiitjr pf GO^OO, showing a clear gain of
por cent over the last Democratic majority. Tl
Kentucky papers say that our Tennessee farce w
worth 20,000 vole? io the Democratic parti/ in th
State. We "ran the thing in tho ground" so coi
pletcly here, as to open the eyes of all the blii
there; except tho few who will not see. And
the hands" of Tennessee are but untied, ando
honest men allowed to vote, she will rival her si
ter, evon with the weight of'the black vote
carry. But enough of Politics.
Thc crops in Tennessee and adjoining State
are better than for many years past ; .'.nd if tl
seasons but contirue propitious, one of the large
crops will be harvested this fall ever made in th
section. The merchants of this City arc vet
jubilaut over the prospects, as, many of thei
have been obliged to suspend business on accoui
of the inability of the planters to meet their lil
bilities of last seaton.
The City, since my last, has made some con
mendable moves in tho way of public improv<
ment The Nickolson pavement has been laid o
.<ome of the principal street?, and by the begit
ning of the wihtor season tho bottomless mud
holes, so dangerous to life and limb last wintei
will be replaced by a smooth, i eautiful and noise
lest pavement, which will fully repay the cost c
construction. Preliminary turveys aro also bein
mado for the' construction of a system of Water
works and Sewerage, which, if carried through
will tend groatly to promote the general healti
of tho City. And, if the extreme measures c
tho "powors that bo" do notsc.ire away emigrant!
Memphis will soon be the Queen City of the Mis
susippi valley. I four however that, under th
management of the Radical crew, with Brownlow
at the helm, the Ship of State will sink, and will
her will be wrecked the material prosperity o
thousands of the citizens of the commonwealth

ASSASSINATION OF THE TRAITOR LOPEZ
Tho particulars of the assassination of Lo

Lopez was stopping at a hotel in Puebla,
where bis wife spurned him from her pres
ence. Early one morning a Mexican Arrived
and familiarized himself with an ostler in a
livery stable adjoining the hotel.
Q?n. Miguel Lopez was inquired for, but
not being in, tho stranger was told tiiat the
General would be at dinner- B.efcre the
dinner hour Lopez returned and was pointed
out to the stranger, who made special note
of his man. When dione rwns called, Lopez
and his assassin occupied opposite scats at
tho table. After 3ome minutes, during which
time the stranger called for and drank a
glass of wine, ho deliberately rose, drew a
concealed knife and sprang upon Lopes, .nd
stabbed him nine times. The stranger then
took his hat, and, as he started, to leave,
said : "This is the way all traitors should
be paid." No ono interfered or prevented
tho assassin from leaving. Thus was the
blood of Maximilian, Miroraon, Mejia, ye*,
and thousaud8 of others, avenged. This re
port is regarded as authentic.
