Senator Sherman, of OL:io, spoke at Can
tun. Ohio, on Tuesday last. We make the
following extracts lr_.in his speech on ques
tions of national import :
At the hist session of Congteis I took n>

THE PU oe RESS OK THE NEW MOVEMENT AT
WASHINGTON-TIIERKMOVAEOF SHERIDAN -
Tho removal of General Sheridan from thc Fifth
Military District and his tran.?!er to Missouii
will, no doubt, be received with a great outcry
by the Radical pnrtionof the Republican party
pres?. But in this last movement, as in the
first grand coup by which Stanton was deposed
from thc War Department. Presideut John
son, with a great deal of rurewdness and sa
gacity, has effectually headed off all attempts
to create a popular excitement over his acts,
or to confer upon Sheridan thc valuable
crown of a martyr. In appointing General
Thomas to the command in Louisiana, as in
assigning Grant to tlc duties of thc Wttr
Department, the President satisfies thc c.un
try that his object is rather to give harmony
and efficiency to the work of Reconstruction
than to embarrass its prugie^NS. The w li
kilowa sentiments of tho new commander,
his recognized fidelity to tho reconstruction
policy approved by the loyal States, his val
uable militar}' services and his admitted civil
qualifications, will induce the people to ac
quiesce as readily in the removal of Sheridan
as they did in the deposition i f Stanton.-N.
NORTH AND SOUTH-THE DIFFERENCE!
As a part of thc history of these unjust, une
qual, hypocritical and execrable times, we
copy prominently the following paragraph
from the New York Timen, a leading Repub
lican newspaper :
Oa the night train from Buffalo, thc other
day, we saw a very well dressed and respecta
ble looking 'American citiz.-n of African de
scent,' apply for a berth ou the sleeping-car.
ile was very promptly refused the privilege,
and had either to stay behind or sit up ali
night. While he was arguing his case, a
white passeuger whom he knew as un old-time
anti-slavery advocate, stepped up to thc agent
and uaid that, at all events, in no case mus:
that negro obtain a berth adjacent to his.
Now, wc do not propose at this time to enter
into any argument about the prejudice of col
or, or autftgouism of race, or instiuct of Cau
casiani.sm, or whatever it may be. We mere
ly wish to remark, that if the incident had
occurred in South Carolina, the railroad agent
would have been compelled to pay a fine of
at least .$200. Forthat was thc stinging fine
which General Sickles, on the 17th of this
month, imposed upon the captain of the
.steamer Pilot BJV, because, on account of
caste, he refused a cabin passage to Miss
Francis Rollins, a 'respectable female of
A LIVERY STABLE ron ORNAMENTAL OFFI
CIALS.-The Washington Express says :i- Some
time ago an offic'ir of the Governmant re
ported to the Secretary of War that a eertam
stable in this city, which ?a now co1 ting the
Government three thousand dollars a month,
ought to be abolished. That report has br.-en
'pigeon holed,' and no action was had upoti
it, the fact I cing that civil officers of the Gov
ernment hav" their burge* fed and kept in
that saree stable at thc expenso of the Gov
ernment-a thing to which they are no more
entitled than they are to have theil clothes
wa?bed-at a Government laundry."
BREAD.-Flour keeps letting down, dollar
by foliar, and there is a prospect of its com
ing within the reach of those who earn the
lowest wages. There is no danger of our
hearing of t wenty dollars or more for a single
bartel of Hour, during the coming -winter at
ary rate. Every body knows thc>e are square
and actual facts, and more honest flour might
be pot into a loaf for the same money than
bas found its way there ar y time for these
four years ptst. A correspondent wishes to
know: "What papers bakers read, if any,
that they have not heard of the great reduc
tion in prices ? Their loavus are as meagre
aj they have been at their smallest."
Tunic* AKE WOAKINC-The New York
Trib ine, of Monday, has an article on thc do
ings at Washington. Wc extract:
We need only add, that no ono has ever [
yet call-d Hancock, Canby and Gordon i

Sheridan, Sickles and Pope have otferded
otherwise than in fivi;:g an active, hearty
8 -ippo't to the reconstruction policy of Con
gress. Wh it, then, do theseacj/i portend ?
Wc can understand them no otherwise than
as the opening of a new and desperate ?trug
gie to arrest the reconstruction policy dfacreed
by Congress, and, if possible, defeat and sub
vert it. "To this end, we infer that it is deemed
c^eeasary to hurl from office every radical
whom tho President or bis Cabinet can reach, i
but especially those wielding military power 1
over thc South. We judge that this final I
struggle i* to be far more bitter, more violent, <

Speaking of" negro supremacy," the Tri'j
inc, Horace Greeley's paper, says : "There
ire 122,0(10,000 of people in the South, where
;f at least S.OOO.OOO !ire whites. There is
luiple room tht-re for 50,000.000 more, and
:rowds are Hocking in-all of them whites.
Europe is sending us a full thousand per day,
iud the South proffers them cheap laud, a
jenial clime, and employment for every son
jl industrial capacity. Now, that a good bar
rest has delivered the South from famine, aud
1er reconstruction is in rapid progress, there
ia no region on earth that should attract so
nany immigrants. Twenty yeats heuce she
will Lave 25 OOO.O?O to 30,000.000 of peopV,
whereof the blacks will probab.'y number
3.000,000 or ti,000;000. Unless ail the laws
which have hitherto governed the increase of
population are subverted, the whites of the
South must increase faster ihan the Wacks by
at least four to one. Not that the blacks will
?ail to increase also, but they are nowise re
cruited by immigration, and cannot bc. Af
rica sends forth no voluntary emigrants ; the
slave ct ade is on its last legs, and no negroes
arc corning to this country from any quarter.
How, then, is it possible that the 4:000,000
of blacks iu this country should overbear the
S.000,030 of whites in the South, with the
minions on the poiu! o.'flocking thither'?"
AT A DISCOUNT_Tho New York Tribune
denounces Wendell Phillips for b firing the
blacks with the hope of impossible dtsliuc
tions-"' It say? :
Tho blacks have been made citizens before

lt i's the very deviltry of demagogcism to flat

THE BAY OF SAMANA PCRCHASED BY THE

news dispatch transmitted by the Cuban ca

have received from the West Indies for years
past. It i* kn~wn that negotiations'have for
some time ben going on between our Gov

with a vie* to our acquiring, for the purpose
of a naval station, the large and beautiful
Bay of Samana. At a cost of ?5,000.000, the
Bay, with five miles of land on the circumja
cent shore, is at last to become the pioperly
of the United Stales. The Bay is foity-three
miles ia length from East to West, about
eight miles broad, and forms one of the fines;
harbors in the world. Samana is said to
possess, in the greatest abundance, the choi
cest limber for ship building, and there arr
also, on thi North shore, excel lent natural
facilities for repairing vc-scls. The acquw

valuable, and, politically, it gives us a con

A Pinn Proposed tor the Settlement of
the Neuro Question.
A convention of the "Union party" cf Or
ange county; Indiana, washeld the other day,
at which some very significant resolutions
were adopted. Two of them are ns follows :
Resolved, That while we rejoice at thc
downfall of slavery and the establishment of
universal liberty throughout the Republic,
we do not believe it possible or desirable to
establish social or polibjil equality between
the black and thc white races. As citizens
of a loyal State in the Union, we claim the
right to establish such laws in regard to suf
rago as to-us abai! seem best calculated to
secure tho harmony and prosperity of our
Resolved, That all attempts to establish ei
ther social or political cqualitv by legislation
I tends to disturb the peace of society and cor
rupt the ballot box. Therefore we are for
the separation of the two races by colonizing
tho negroes of the United States in ?orne lo
cality congenial to their well being, as the
means of a final settlement of this vexed
question in American politics.
SCALPED.-Thc New York Sun thinks
Sheridan's banishment lo the Indian territory
a kind of Executive scalping. It says in il
lustration : " When General Pope made bis
memorable fiasco in the Shenandoah Valley,
he was relieved and sent up to Northern Min
nesota to fight the Indians. When McDowell
proved a failure he was sent out to the Pacific
coast on a somewhat similar errand. If Pope
and Sickles want to avoid a similar fate, it
will be well for them to ease up on tbe recon
struction law without delay. Popo particu
larly ought to be more mindful of the impend
ing doom, for he has experience in that line."

pecially ai regards our own precinct, that ihre?

The American people, especially those of the
South, reed n great dehl more relaxation and fun
than they now enj-y. Seriousness and earncrt
ncss are good things, but the American people aro
too exclusively serious and earnost. Man needs
to mix fun and merriment with his CRrneitncss
just ai a horso naeds fodder or hay mixed with
his corn. Exclusive earnestness becomes morbid'
vitiates all tho virtuos, and dcvelopes the worst
elements of human naluro. Mon would lire longer,
would developo better physically, would look
handsomer, would bo happier, would be less selr
fish, and bu moro virtuous and do more good, if
thoy had moro of fun and mirth. Dauco and

Riotous Conduct of Freedmen in St.
Tbomas aud Christ Church Parishes.
Wednesday last, registration, by previous
announcement, was commenced in the Parish
of S:. Thomas, at the Brick Church, under
the superintendence of Messrs. L. P. Smith,
(a Northern gentleman lately located here,)
Jeremiah Yates and Aaron Logan, a freed
man, the Board of Registration. About a
thousand colored men were present, one-fifth
ol whom were armed with guns or muskets,
and when the books were opened, Mr. Smith,
the Chair mau of the Board, made a brief ad
droiis, explanatory of the Reconstruction Acts
and the duties of the freedmen as good citi
zens in exercising their rights under them and
preserving tho peace. This was reteived
with considerable and merited satisfaction,
when some of the crowd requested his opin
ion ns to the rights of the planters with
whom they had contracted for labor, to de
duct from their wages for thc time during
which they were absent from work for thc
purpose of bei: g registered. Mr. Smith
tua ie thc proper response, but was interrupted
by Lis colleague, the colored man Aaron Lo
gan, who proceeded to harangue the crowd,
and in inflammatory language to declaim
against the right of white men to prevent the
carrying of arms by freedmen. He said, also,
that the planters should not interfere with
the colored peoplo iu registering, nor deduct
from their wages, .Mid that there was nothiug
in the law, r.or in General Sickles' orders to
prevent them from exercising their rights to
the fullest extent. That now was the time
when the freedmen should show that they
possessed rights which they meant to main
tain, and ihat when an election took place
they ought to vote for white Radicals if they
could be found, or else to till the offices by
nen of their omi color. That the native
whites of the Stale were not to be trusted,
and if permitted, would enact lawn operating
against the black man, and, therefore, black
men should be elected to make laws for them
He continued in this strain, and in language
calculated to excite the passions of the crowd,
until Mr. Smith, who had vainly ?nderv/ored
lo persuade him to desist, exercised his au
thority as Chairman of thc Board, and ad
journed its session. It was hoped that this
would have prevented the difficulties which
were imminent, but such did not prove to be
the case. The Board adjourned tn meet at
the Mount Pleasant Poll, in Christ Church
Parish, on Monday.
When the books were opened on that dav,
about three hundred freedmen w>-re on thc
ground, a considerable proportion of whom
were supplied with muskets, guns, and blud
geons. Mr. Smith again made a brief address,
similar to the one delivered at tho poll in St.
Thomas, and was again interrupted by Logan,
who was, if possible, more violent in his lan
guage, and seemingly more dispos, d to engen
der atrife. lie was, as OD the former occa
sion, requested to desist, but declined so to
do ; and Mr. Smith, to avoid trouble, closed
the poll, came to thc city, and reporte ! the
facts to General Clitz, tho Commandant of
this Post. On the saina host cr^me Logan,
who also waited on the General to present a
statement of the case. When General Clitz
had been apprised of all the circumstance*,
he promptly ordered the arrest of Logan and
his' incarceration in Castle Piuckney, ou a
charge of impediug Registration.
Yesterday Mr. Smith returned to Mount
Pleasant, accompanied by Major O'Brien, the
Provost Marshal, we believe, of thia post, who
went to ensure the preservation of order.
Thc; poll was re-opened aud the freedmen in
vited to come forward and register, but they
declined to do so unless there was a black
man sitting on the Board, and demanded the
release of Logan. Seeing that a number of
them were nrmed as on the day before, Msjor
O'Brif.n explained to them that they were
violating the express orders of General Sick
les, and commanded them to surrender their
weapons. They paid no attention whatever
1> his orderd, aud aa he was not supported by
n force sufficient to ensure obedience, ho re
tired, unwilling to provoke a disturbance
which he was not in a position to quell, and
returning to the city, reported the condilion
of affairs to General Clitz. The freedmen
afterwards dispersed, but not without threats
that they would burn the village if they were
not permitted to exercise such rights as Logan
bad declared they were entitled to enjoy.
Wc understand that General Clilz will go to
Mount Pleasant thia morning, with a sufficient
force to suppress auf disorderly conduct
whieh may occ r ?inongst the freedmen, who
doubtless will again assemble, and to arrest
all who appear armed on the scene. It is de
voutly to bo hoped that no difficulty will oc

NKV; YUKK, August 30.
The following informatiou is an answer to
the mar.j/ contradictory reports as to the cause
of General Sickles removal: ''It is stated
upon unquestionable authority that General
Sickles has not yet received any Executive
orders revoking or modifying blx General
Order No. 10. Nor ha< General Sickles ic
quested a revocation or suspeusion of any
Executive order or any other order ia the
premises, lt is al*o stated that General
Sickles has not disobeyed any order from the
General-in-Chief revoking or suspending Or
der No. 10, nor docs he know of the existence
of any such order.
General Sickle? has not a?ked to bc reliev
ed from duty in his district since the passage
of the Act of Congress oi" July li), lSi>7. The
only Executive order that is known to have
been addressed to General Sickles, concern
ing his relations to thc Courts of the United
States, in his Military District, was sent to
him when one of those Courts, in au attempt
lo coustrain bia action (in the caso of the
Anderson, S. C., prisoners) ordered his arrest,
whereupon, General Sickles was instructed
by the (hen Secretary of War, to take into
custody, any p.nd all pemons undertaking to
arrest him. No occasion, however, arose for
compliance with those instructions.
WHY GF.>;::KAL SICKLES WAS REMOVED.
The Washington correspondent of the Ne:.
York JJera'd fays : '. Thc cause ot thc remo
val of Generu.1 Sickle? ia his insubordination
in disobeying ike positive commauds of the
President Thu Ord? r No. 10, resisting the
execution ol mandates of tho United States
Supreme Court in North Carolina was re
sciuded by thc President some weeks ago,
and General Grant instructed General Sickles
accordingly ; but the latter, instead of prompt
ly gubmittinr. ordered his subordinates not
to obey the instructions forwarded by thc
Attorney G< ueral at the command of the
President, and wrote a very offensive letter
to General G.ant, in which he alluded in dis
respectful terms, indirectly, to the President,
and asked foi a suspension of the order until
such time a?? he (Sickies) could write a de
fence of his ourse. The Preiidcnt, however,
refuse? to wait when a plain, positive com
raand is reck'cssly disregarded, and retires
Sickles with unusual promptness. Thc next
victim will undoubtedly bo General Pope,
who in a short time will be removed to make
way for General Wager Swaync."
A SUBJECT FOR DIPLOMACY.-A correspon
dent of thc New Yoik 'Tribune, wriliug from
Richmond, Va., says:
A caso of unusual interest came to-day be
fore Judge Underwood, involving international
law. It appears that acolored mau presented
himself at thc office of a steamship company,
asking first-class passage from New York, foi
which he advanced full fare. The agent
peremptorily refused him because of his color.
The colored mau, upon arrival, weut to Get:,
Schofield to sOek redress, who referred him
to Judge Underwood, then holding court. He
came before thc Judge, explanad bi* case,
and stated further that he was a native and
resident of Canada, and consequently a sub
ject of Uer Most Grucious Majesty, Queer
Victoria. Upon learning this important fact,
the Judge declined to interfere in the matter
advising the apuiicaut for his rights to lay his
case before the British Consul. That official
existing only in imagination here since hi!

dian will proceed to Washington with a view
to obtain from the British Minister what h<
has been denied elsewhere. This will prob??

SLAVERY AND POLYOAWY.-A California
correspondent of the New York Journal of
Commerce calls attention to tho practice of
polygamy and slavery on the Pacific coast,
within tho States and Territories. Both these
institutions, he says, prevail among thc China
settlements and native American races, with
out hindrance or denunciation, Thc higher
classes of thc Chinese in California arc said
to import slaves direct from Chiua, and great
numbers aro kept in thc State, both male and
female, who d.^ily deliver up to their m?sten
all their earnings, and never sue for or expect
their freedom. Thc Indians enslave alt of
their captive.), have as many wives as they
choose, and .?eparate from them when they
please. The .?ame polygamie custom prevails
among the native Mexicans of California.
The correspondent thinks it would be appro
priate and wise if philanthropists who d?.vot?
so much time to the ex-slaveholders of the
South would ijivu their attention to slavery
and polygamy as practiced by Ihn A?iatio
races, Indians and Mexicans in California.

HEART-RENDERING ACCIDENT.-The Mobile
papers contain accounts of a heart-rendiog
casualty which occurred on Friday night in
that city, by which a venerable lady lost her
life at thc hands of her own son. The occur
rence took place in the family of Dr. Jesse
Carter. It appears that young Carter bad
been unwell for some day*, and that hts
mother had placed a bcd for him in a cham
ber adjoining her own. Thc physician attend
ing the young man had on Friday evening ad
ministered a preparation containing opium.
During the night Mrs. Carter was alarmed by
some noise down stairs, and went into her
son's roora to awaken him. Starting from his
lethargy, half stupefied by the opium, the son
drew a pistol from under his pillow, and fired
twice at his mother, u:.der the belief that she
was a burglar. One of the balls divided the
carotid artet v, and the unfortunate lady soon
bled to death. She exclaimed : " Son, son,
you did not mean it. God bless you." Grazed
by the de*ed, the unhappy son rushed out of
the house, and has not since been seen.
