Conservative Convention at Mont
MONTGOMERY, September 5, p. m.-The
Conservative Convention adjourned to-day
after adopting thc following resolutions:
The Conservative men of the State of Ala

1st. Thc Constitution of the United States

such changes as have been subsequently made

to, protect and defend the same.
2d. In ali conflict of powers under that in
strument the supreme judiciary power is the
only arbiter which is independent of, and in
its provinces superior to, each of the others,
and they are bound to obey.

the war and accepted by the Southern people
to be perpetual, and the authority of the Fed

5th. By thc Constitution .and under the
fundamental law of thc Federal Government,
which is sope.-ior to Congress, and of which

and purpose to cultivate relations and friend

Political Meetiug at Belton S. C.
In accordance with previous notice, a large
number of citizens assembled at Belton, on'
Frida}', 29th ultimo. The Anderson Intelli
gencer gives the following account of thc pro
Major Johu B. Moore was the first speaker
introduced. He announced himself in favor
of the Convention ; declared the interests ol
both races were identical, and that it was
their duty to treat each other kindly; told
the freedmen that their white neighbors were
their best and only friends ; denounced in
strong terms all secret political societies ; ad
monished all classes- to avoid a conflict of
races, and assured the freedmen that arraying
a black man's party against the whites would
prove disastrous to them.
Col. W. D. Wilkes next addressed thc au
dience in a lengthy speech, mainly directed
to thc freedmen, and entering fully into their
history as a race aDd introduction into this
country, giving them praise for past behaviour,
but especially during thc late w.ir. For this
aud other .reasons, the whites of the South
were not only willing, but anxious to promote
their welfare. Ile favored tho State Conven
tion, and declared that while some good sol
\ diers were opposed to it, he knew that the
greatest opposition came from men who were
in soft places during the late war.
Hon. J. S. Murray was then-introduced, and
? in an able maimer explained the object of
Government, and demonstrated the necessity
for a stable Government at this time. He
then gave a brief history of the introduction
of slavery, and of the contests to which it
led. Having remarked that all were citizens
of a common country, thal God had cast our
lot together, and that we must live together
either as friends or enemies, ho then warned
the colored people against emissaries from
the North-whose motives were selfish aud
whose designs arc destructive of their best
He also urged them not to identify them
selves with any party, showed that the Re
publican party discriminated in favor of white
labor, by heavily taxing cotton, which was
unj ust aud oppicssi ve. The speaker explained
their civil and political rights, and declared
that when these were secured to them, their
destiny would bc in their own bands, and
that with iudurtry, economy, education and
moderation, a bright career was before them,
but if they recklessly made the white man
an enemy, and brought about a couflict of
races, their destruction was certain.
Hon. J. L. Orr was then introduced, and
addressing the whites, advised them to regis
ter and vote for a Convention, as it was folly
and madness to attempt to defeat that object.
There were GO.00O negro voters, 30,000 whites,
and as the Convention would look to the in
terest of thc black man, it could not be ex
pected that one of them would vote against
it. He then admonished the freedmen that
they must be industrious and save their money,
and reminded them that if they attempt op
pression of thc whites now while in thc ma
jority, it might be -visited upon them in the
future,, when the balance of power would be
different, as no more negroes were to be
brought to tbi.s country. He disabused their
minds of the idea that they would obtain
lands from the Government, and showed that
I this was not even desirable upon their part.
The Governor presented every phase of the
issues before the people, with groat force and
ability, and to the satisfaction of bis hearers.
We regret that fuller Dotes of his speech are
not at our command.
The regularly invited speakers having con
cluded, it was requested that J. P. M. Epping,
of Charleston, be allowed to occupy the stand.
That gentleman made a short speech, endors
ing for the most part the speech of Governor
Orr, but adviseJ the blacks to adhere to the
Republican party, and recommended to them
the Union League, t?e favored high taxes
upon land, but told the negroes they were to
have no lands given to them. He admonished
them against a conflict of races, declaring
that they would find 32.000,000 whites against
4,000,000 of blacks, and that the conflict
would be short and result in their extermi
Wilson Cool;, of Greenville, and Elias Can
ady, of this village, both freedmen, also made
speeches. We learn that Cook told the ne
groes they were to have no lands given to
them, and that confiscation would work to
the detriment of their race. It would be the
means of inaugurating a war of races, and in
that event, he would not live in the State,
though he was given a thousand acres of land.
From all that wc can learn, the ppeakers
indulged in plain taik, without exception. In
deed, we are assured that the discussion was
of that character to allow no room for doubt
as to the opinions of both white and colored,
and we trust that the impressions made will
be deep and lasting, especially in regard to
the result of those extreme measures referred
to by every one of the speakers.

Last Chance for Registration.
According to public notice given by tho Board
of Registrars for the 7th Reg't., Edgefiold Dis
trict, they will sit at this placo on next Monday
and Tuesday, the 16th and 17th inst., for the pur
peso of registering thc names of all citizens, not
disfranchised, who may yet appear before them
with this intent. Wo take it for granted that
similar notices have been given at every precinct
in our District
The rains in this section of country, for weeks
past, but especially on Sunday last, have been
almost unprecedented for volume of water and des
tructivo capacity. We havenever seen io so short a
period such torrents of rain water, or beard such
universal complaiot of damage done by rain. On
Monday, after the terrible floods of Sunday, the
clouds held up; lut to-day again, (Tuesday,)
there is every appearance of heavy rain. We
bear of highways being torn to pieces, bridges
carried away, and mill dams broken. Among the
latter, we mention Long's, Pusey's, and Hatcher's?
all on Shaws' Creek. Tho earth is as full of wa
ter as though it were a sponge just saturated.
Tho damago to the crops must-be immense.
Unde* these circumstance^, let us strive to re
member the reply-and take it for our example
of Job to his wife, when sho bado bim " Curse
God and die." "Shall wo recoivo good at the
hands of God, and not evil ?
Playing With Edged Tools.
For the first timo in their lives thc negroes have
the ballot, and, like children with edged tools,
they aro beginning to cut and hack regardless of |
result!. Or so at least is it in this community,
which is being disturbed and alarmod almost
nightly by tho unlawful and riotous proceedings
of the freedmen. On Wednesday nights, occur
thc meetings of their Union Republican Club, or
Loyal League, or whatover else it may bo called ;
and on these nights, especially, are their doings
very dangerous and unbecoming. We menn their
doings outside of their Club-an indication to our
mind that their interior carryings-on aro no less
mischievous. Wc aro credibly informed that on
Wednesday night last, they, boldly halted peacea
ble white citizens, passing the Club House to
reach their homes, stopped them, and demanded
from them a countersign. A proceeding aa stupid
as it was high-handed. A fino piece of business
truly ! And on tho same occasion they arc said to
have been universally armed, alleging that they
wero expecting to bo attacked by whites and
driven from the house. Any one, white or blaok,
living in this community, well knows, and must
confess, that these factious freedmen labored un
der no such impression ; nothing has happened,
nothing been said or done, in EdgcGeld for a year
past,-tiny, for two years past-that could possi
bly have given rise to any such fear. For theto
gratuitous rows, noises and disturbances, which
now inako almost every night in our midit hide
ous, thc freedmen aro emphatically to blame.
Are there no men of age and influence among
them to advise them to better things ? Will not the
Commandant of thc Post here, take precaution?
to arrest such proceedings boforo tl.ey culminate
in terrible disaster? Are these deluded froedmcn
to be forever played upon by despcroto politician?
and schemers withouiSJ'cOHnterocting influen
ces? Politicians and schemors, who, whether
thoj be white or black, homebred or foreign, have
but ono common object-plunder, and if possible,
If the dangerous, unlawful and unprovoked
proceeding?, of which.we havo Epoken above, be
not left off, we advise our citizens to loso no time
in making a representation of thc matter to Gen.
CANBV. HO may-ns he certainly ought to-inter
pose his authority, and restore to the sleeping
women and children of this community some
sense of saftcy and protection.
Carrying Deadly Weapons.
By General Orders No. 10, issued in April last,
the practice of carrying deadly weapons, except
by persons in the military or naval service of the
United State*, is expressly prohibited. And at
tne time of the publication of said order very
much was said by the authorities regarding tho
strict and rigid enforcement of its provision?.
Hereabouts, this enforcement has been-and still
is-far from strict or rigid. White men, as a
general thing, have given up tho practico of car
rying deadly weapons. Many negroes carry them
in tho most open and unbridled manner.

The President's Amnesty Proclama*
Thc whole country is looking with sager anx
iety for the forthcoming Amnesty Proclamation
of President Joiixaos. In our news column will
be found an announcement, in advance, of the
classes excepted in this Proclamation. The Pro
clamation i? daily expected to bo officially pro
mulgated. Upon this subject wo givo tho follow
ing from tho Charleston Mercury .
It has been a great question in tho South what
practical benefit was to be expected from the
promised amnesfj' proclamation. Even those
persons nlready specially pardoned are not al-' |
lowed to register ; and it was, naturally, argued
that a general proclamation of amnesty, in the
faco of the provisions of the Second Supplemen
tary act, would not have greater effect than an
individual amnesty granted beforo Congress had
declared that an Executive pardon should not en
title any person, otherwiso disqualified, to regis
ter or vo':o. The Philadelphia Pr?te, a violent
and unscrupulous opponent of the President, be
lieves, however, that Mr. Johnson wilf make his
amnesty effective, and that this will bo done by a
Presidential order, through General Grant, based
upon na opinion of the Attorney-General.
The Pr?te says:
At any rate, Mr. Johnson will assume to inter
fere with the registration of voters, by ordering
thc reopening of tba registration lists, as well as
thc postponement of all elections that have been
ordered ; and in this connection the long-talkcd
of nmnei ty proclamation, which is now promised
to tho public in a few days, is of great signifi
canee, lt has been argued that tho postponement
I of the elections ordered by Sheridan, and the re
opening of the registration, wonld not amount to
anything, save confirming thoopicion of all k>ynl
men that Johnson tras opposod to Congressional
and districtional reconstruction ; but the prepara
tion of this amnesty proclamation probably dis
closes tho plot in all its hideous criminality. In
short, it is surmised to be the intention of the Ad
ministration not only to reopen registration whare
it has bcjn closed, but by granting pardon to
thousand! of voters who are now disfranchised, to
override che Union majorities promised by the
present situation in the South, and insure rebol
victories at the coming election, or, what, is the
same thing, tho election of supporters of the Ad
ministration to all of the offices in the Southorn
The mere promulgation of an amnesty procla
malion will not effect this objoct without anothe*
opinion from Attorney-General Stauben/, ittued to
thc Sou'h'rn Commanders at a military order hy
the Commander-in-Chief. It will bo remembered,
in this connection, that the first opinion from
Stanbcrry regarding reconstruction waa intended
to bc issued in that form, but the intention was
frustrated by Secretary Stantnns's opposition to
it in the Cabinet. No ono can doubt for a mo
ment that Messr*. Slanberry and Black can man
ufacturo arcumttnts for an opinion, which, issued
by tho military authority of the Pre?ident, will
evade the points in the Reconstruction laws which
now apparently pr?sent insurmountable obstacles
to the success of this scheme. Altogether, the
situation is moro muddled than evor, and while
it is not safe at this juncture to make any certain
prediction os to the new developments of tbo
Johnsonian policy, thc public may feel a-tured
that Mr. Johnson icill not retrace any of the tteps
he han taken in the premise?, but on the contrary
may expect new und more startling evidences of
his madness, as he baa within the past few days
earnestly promised his Copperhead advisers to
curry out tho programme which he hrs begun to.

Tho Indian Lu?ictntic?. **
For two years past, or moro, the Iudiana on Ibo
Northwo.-ttrn Plains havo proved themselves ex
tremely unfriendly to tho whites of tho frontier
settlements, and their hostile demonstrations have
gono on from worse to worse until thcro now
seems to be imminent danger of a general Indian
war. Day by day, and month by month, dis
patches come thick and fast from the Weft and
Northwest, reoounting innumerable, and most
horrible Indian outrages. The whole Indian
population, and it is still very large, seems
to bc in a stato of blind and wrathful excitement.
And wc do not doubt but that these Indians
have abundantcauso for their enmity to thc whites.
Ever sinec the settlement of America our own
Vaco has been wretchedly culpuble in the matter
of outragiog thc poor and fricndlcrs red man.
There are volumes of evidence that bad white
men are nearly always the inciters of Indian
troubles. But be all this os it may, wc are now,
in all probability, about to witness another act in
the gloomy and inglorious drama of Indian ox
termination. Congress at its last session appoint
ed a Commission to proceed to the Northwest and
investigate Indian affairs. At thc head of this
Commission is Gon. W. S. Blarney, perhaps thc
oldest Indian figbtor in tho United States, one
who served in Florida in the Black Hawk war,
and who, s idee then, has seon immense servico on
tbo pinina. This Commission ?snow in Nebraska,
pursuing its investigations ; and tho probabilities
seem to bo that measures on a largo and expen
sive scale will soon be inaugurated for tho punish
ment and subjugation of the luckless Indians. lu
Nubraska, Gen. Augur is in command; in the
Stato or Territory North of Nobraska, Gen. Ter

the redoubtable politico-military horo Gen. Sheri
dan now holds sway. Gen. Augur estimates the
number of troops necossary to enable him to wago
a successful campaign against the Indians in his
district at 20,000 men, 15,000 of whom must be
cavalry. He also estimates tho same amount, or
number, necossary in Gen. Sheridan's district:

But Gon. Harney goes farther than this. He
estimates tho number necessary to put down the
Indians at 100,000 men. And he is supposed to I
make his estimate from a thorough knowledge of j
the capacity of the Indians for war. He often

A Quick) Certain, Sure Flan to Recon*
struct the South.
Every man in the Southern States must
now see that the old plan of large plantations
must be done away with, and to keep such
places, now that the negroes are free, is neither
practicable nor desirable. Large plantations, if
practicable, are against the true interests of
tbe South. What they need is population-;
population is political power and wealth.
That being the case, how are they to ac
?uire that population 1 The answer is easy,
et every man in the South instantly subdi
vide his land into fifty acre tracts, as near as
possible dividing the wooded and cleared
land equally, at any rate giving to each forty
acres five or ten of wood. When this is done,
let them offer in all the Western States to
give to each settler alternate forty acres of |
land, requiring no other terms than that each
settler shall bring with him a team, farming
implements and' means to build a house, and
five years residence.
In Illinoiii, Indiana, Ohio and other Wes
tern States, land is worth from $5U to $150
per acre. These lands are out o? the reach
of the thousands and hundred)* of thousands
of young, enterprising and industrious men
who are looking about for wives aud a future
settlement. Open these alternate forty acres
of good, rich lands to them, and instantly
every avenue of travel will be filled with in
telligent, thrifty, practical farmers, going
South with their wives, their horses and im
proved farming implements to settle on the
lands donated them. We mention Western
men because, as contrasted with a foreign
popula!ion, i.hey are skilled farmers and more
desirable in every way.
Let this b ; done, and in five years at most
we shall have an overwhelming white popula
tion ruling tho country, developing its re
sources and rebuilding schools, colleges,
academies, churches and railroads, where now
there are none. Let this be done and we
shall soon see a height of prosperity in the
South never dreamed of by them. Thc Brown
lows, JJunnicutts and all such fanatics, with
their negro votes, will vanish like the mists
of morn before the rising sun. Let this be
done, and the alternate forty acres reserved
will be wortii fivefold more than the whole is
now. Let tiis be done, and the South will
risc up again as a ruling power in the land,
and confiscation and excessive taxation will
The danger to our plan is this: each and
every man may see it as we do, but the part
simony of ct.ch may prompt him to hold on
to all of his lands, boping his neighbors may
divide out whilst he holds on to all-There
lies thc rub.
ARREST or AN INCENPURT LECTURER.
We are glad to learn from the Bennettsvillo
Journal that Nat. Williams, the negro incen
diary lecturer, a description of who<e ha
rangues appeared in the Charleston Mercury,
of the 24th ultimo, bas been arrested and
carried to Darlington. He is charged with
preaching incendiary doctrines to the freed
people ot Marlboro District, aud will be tri- *
ed by military commission. There are others,
in different portions of the " Second District"
that should be looked after. One, with a
white skin, mado usc of expressions in Wes
tern North Carolina that were of such a char
acter as to warrant the interference of the
District Commander. Justice may yet bi
meted to those parties.-Phoenix.
Ux WARRANTABLE MILITARY INTERFER
ENCE.-We regret to announce what we can
not but regard as an unwarrantable, interfer
ence of the military authorities in au affair
between two private citizens here, and which
so far os it was au offence against the public
peace, was one which the local civil authori
ties were ready and fully competent to punish.
The matter to which we allude was an alter
cation between Mr. Andrew Simonds, of
Charleston, and Mr. IL C. Belcher of our
District, growing out of some pecuniary diffi
culty, and which resulted like most affairs of
the sort, in blows given and received, without
serious damage to either party. Mr. Belcher,
tho assaulting party, was held to bail at the
time, to auswer an indictment, and when a
week afterwards he wa3 here for the purpose
of perfecting bis bond to keep the peace, he
was suddenly arrested and hurried off under
a military escort, we kuow not wbero, to an
swer for his offence before some militar}' tri
bunal. To heighten the hardship of thc case,
we learn that Air. Belcher was hurried away
from a sick wife for an indefinite period. We
?tate the facts simply, and forbear comment.
THE WAR OF RACES BEGUN.-The Chatta
nooga Union learns that, on Tuesday, in
Washington, Rhea County, a party of white
men became involved in a controvcrsv with
some niggers, net upon politic*, but with re
gard to thc races, which ended in the niggers
being driven out of tho town. The Loyal
League, of course, took it up, and entered the
town on Wednesday, with the niggers, and a
running fight, with varying success, ensued.
Thursday, the town was quiet, but the people
wero apprehensive of serious difficulties. The
war of races is inevitable, but it is not the
fault of the negroes, but of thc low dowu
white men who have arrayed tho blacks in
deadly hostility against their own race. They
have sown the wind, and they will reap thc
NEGRO TROOPS FOR ORANGEHURG_We re
gret to state Mint a companv of negro troops,
numbering 1 officer and t2 men, left this
place for Orangeburg, by the South Carolina
Railroad, yesterday morning. They belong
to the 40th United States Infantry, and came
we believe from Washington Kia Wilmington.
We regret this circumstance, not because we
want them to stay here, for if they have to be
stationed either in Charleston or Orangeburg,
we prefer the latter place, but we think their
presence anywhere in the State can only re-:
suit in harm. Whito troops havo been gene
rally found to be the friends of order,, while the
presence of negro troops invariably creates
disturbances among tho coloured population.
GENERAL CANBY'S OPINIONS.-General Can
by, who has just been appointed to the com
mand of the Second Military District, is said
to have remarked yesterday, in conversation
with a friend, that he was not a political par
tisan, but that he had studied the reconstruc
tion laws thoroughly and approved them, and
thal he considered their faithful execution es
sential to the welfare of the nation. He
thought it the duty of the Southern people to
accept the terms offered them. Ho is alto
yaki to have cxpreKsed his appreciation of the
utility of the Freedmen's Bureau and his in
tention of giving i:s agents all proper and
neccssaty aid in thc execution of their work.

The Questions Before the Court.
The question came upon Monday before
Judge Bryan as to the validity of payments
made nuder proceedings in the South Caroli
na Oonrts during the war, in Confederate
money. The case was a suit against T. R.
Agnew, assignee, against Mrs. Lucy T. Thomp
son, of Spartanburg, widow of Henry Thomp
son, Administratrix. During the war, a Bill
in Equity, at Spartariburg, was filed, calling
in the creditors of the Estate of Mr. Thomp
son. The note due tbepayee, who assigned
io the plaintiff in this case, was filed in Court
by S. Bobo, attorney, and agent of payee.
Property (lands) of the Estate was s?ld, and
chis debt, with - that of other creditors, paid
off by the proceeds in Confederate money, as
all the other debus were. The Judge ruled
che proceeding of the State Court not obliga
tory and directed the jury to find for the
whole amount of the note against Mrs. Thomp
son. The amount being under two thousand
dollars, no appeal can be taken ; consequently,
Mrs. Thompson will have to sell more proper
cy to raise the money a second time.
On Tuesday, an interesting question was
made before the Court, as to the construc
tion of the Internal Revenue A?t of Congress
of 18C2, which provides inter alia that col
lectors shall be appointed in each State ac
cording to the number of representatives to
which each State is entitled'. The offenqe
was charged to be in violation- of the provi
sions of this Act. Arnim and other defen:
dants, in the indictment pleaded that this
Stale not being entitled to representation in
Congress at the time of the Act, was not em
braced in its provisions at all, consequently,
they are not amer able or answerable to any
charges of violations of laws which Congress
itself did not in terms apply to the State
where such violations are alleged to be com
The point was ably, argued for defendants,
by General Gary, of Edgefield, and Hon. W.
D. Porter, of Charleston, and replied to by
District Attorney., Mr. Corbin, and J. P.
Reed, of Anderson, who is associated in the
prosecution. Tho Judge overruled the pica
principally on the ground that the specifica
tion of the Act as to thc number of collec
tors was merely for territorial conveniences,
and had nothing to.do with the authority of
Congress er the liability of citizens to pay
taxes.-Greenville Enterprise, 4th.
THE LINEDRAWX.-Several of the Virginia
papers, including the Charlottesville Chronicle
and the Norfolk Lay Book, that have recent
ly manifested a desire to co operate with the
Radicals in restoring the Seato to the Union,
have-changed their views since the meeting
of the Huunicutt Convention. The Chronicle
remarks as follows :
" From the proceedings of that Convention,
it is almost impossible to discover that any
white man was there except Mr. Hunnicutt
and Mr. Hawxhurst. The colored people
just took things in their own bands, and acted
as if there were no white people in the State.
They have defiant by organized themselves into
a black man's party, and only one thing re
mains for tho white people to do-to take
up the glove.''
" Our advice is this : let us fight it out. It
may be that in the approaching election the
whites will fail to carry a majority of the
counties. But in the long run the result is
not doubtful. The colored people are merely
sealing their own doom. We tell them, as
we have told thom before, that thirty-one
millions of white people in the United States
are not going to surrender the South-the
magnificent empire of the South-ta four
millions of blacks. The thing cannot bo
done ; it will not be done ; their hope is iu
peace ; but if they will have war, let it come."
BOLD TALK.-The New York Citizen (semi
Radical) has tried the black vomit and does
not like it. It says :
The daily papers are mnkmg a great mad
die over tho opinions of the prominent Gen
erals and the people at large on the question
of reconstruction, They tell us that Grant
approves of the course of the President, that
Thomas agrees with Sheridan, and thaf Sher
man favors the plan of Congress or vice versa,
according to their political bias. We can
tell them all that if the Congressional system
is to put the South in possession of the ne
groes, it does not meet the views of the peo
plp, the sailors in our fleets, the soldiers in
out armies, the morchauts at-their desks, the
farmers at their ploughs, or any other large
body of our citizens. A St. Domingo is not
what we fought for ; we do not want it and
will not have if ; and that the niggers, wheth
er white or black, may understand as well
first as last. Nations are cruel when driven
to despair ; and, rather than surrender our
whits nationality, we will massacre or euslave
every colored mau in the States. This may
bc bold language and unconventional, but we
ask our readers whether it does not meet the
confirmation of their hearts ? We have sac
rificed too many whites for a principle to stop
at taking the lives of a few worchless blacki.
STREET RAILROAD.-This grand enterpr

GLORYING IX ITS FILTH.-The editor of the
Knoxville Whig thus refers to certain com
plaints agaiustbis paper:
A portion of the Conservative aristocracy
of Knoxville lind fault with our paper be
cause it is wanting in literary taste-not
ohaste in its selections-and not refined and
<'pious" in ita teachings! Their remedy is
not to read the paper-we will not say pay
for it-for these refined grumblers all bor
row. We don't edit and publish a paper for
the edification of the se fastidious rebel sym
pathizers, but for tbs unsophisticated people
who vote the Radical ticket. In other words,
we are of the "Dry Shirt Party," and shall
shapo our course to please and serve that par
ty, ' The decency of the country can look
out a sheet suited io '.heir tastes, habits of life,
ancl pious training-keeping in the tack
ground their " private ways,'1 and the more
startling effects of their " early piety."
NEGRO CONGRESSMEN.-Tho Vicksburg
Mississippian says :
" Although South Carolina was tho first to
suggest negro Congressmen and officials in
the eveut of Radical success iu the South it
is simply a very general idea that prevails
throughout the South, and should we of Mis
sissippi who oppose a Convention fail of suc
cess, we will combino our sti ;ngth with tho
negro vote, and oust forever the hopes of
Northern and Southern Radicals who desiro
to uso Sambo to climb into office.
" We.constitutional people will see to it
that Mr. Radical Cocfish from the North, and
Mr. Sympathizer Muggins from thc South,
shall not tuurp the Government from thc
blacks, who (according to the argument ol
'the legitimate resuhs of the war'), have a
divine right to rule. What a beautiful and
instructive lesson on thc folly of human am
bition, to behold Mrs. Codfish and Mrs. Mug
gins, snubbed by those elegant ladies of color,

Think? of Him.
Ia reviewing General Pope's recent letter
to General Grant, in relation to the extradi
tion of Messrs. Hill, Johnson and Perry, the
Boston Post gives the following neat and
polbhed sketch of the peculiar characteristics
of this truly great and good man 1
Gen. Pope is a funny man. AH who re
member his Falstaffian report about the num
ber of his prisoners, his announcement that
his Headquarters were in the saddle, his de
moralized retreat toward Washington, his ar
ray without any head, and he seeking quartert
at the Capital while steam was up on the Po
tomac to convey the Government from the
District in case the enemy followed the saga
cious General, too close for its safety, will not
wonder that President Lincoln thought Pope
had more wind *han efficiency. His preten
tious letter to Gen. Grant illustrates his con
ceit and weakness. He recommends the ban?
ishment of those who differ from him in
opinion and express that difference, and pro
scribes all newspapers that oppose his views,
and then announces his anxiety to secure
freedom of ?peech and the liberty of the press I
He declares the only safety for reorganiza
tion in the South is through free discussion,
and then recommends ostracising all who
oppose the Radical pilan and proscribes all
papers that do not advocate it. He says this
I coune is necessary to secure the South to the
Republican party, and then proceeds to de
monstrate the certainty that the Republicans
will triumph in all these States without any
coercive measures. Pdpe, you are au ASH.
