Constitution Making in thc Soutli?Nig
ger Rule and Nigger Ruiu.
By the procodings of the Alabama Con
vention the nation may see the results of
Radical rule-first, to drive from the govern
ing councils of a community ail learning, all
discretion, all regard for Ute stability of soci
ety, ail qualities that mea respect ; and, sec
ond, to replace these qu-dities by ignorance,
savagery and the most intense spirit of re
venge. An assembly to mike a State con
stitution is comp seel of men uaknjwn to the
people ofthat State, or whore known " known
t> bu men of indifferent character.*' I's prom
tn -nt vvhiLi men are political adventurers,
who v,-..-re the se tm of Northern politics, and
Couimondel themselves to tagger ve'ers by

ii some degree the Conven ioa is m ide up
of that class whose priucipal qualification is
that it has always been under tue white man's
foot, and b.ea content with the place; who-e
qualification for la?' tnakii.g is its former sla
very, because it is suppled that slavery has
filled it with a bitterness that it will put into
lh? law. Here are Con-stituti -II makers who
not only caum.t write their lia ne-, but canuot
always tt-11 what their uames ure. Mose*,
possessed of a'! the loaming tif the Egpptians,
and divinely inspired, made a Constitution
for his peuple, and why should not Sambo

of antiquity s.-tu their delegates a year's jour

Happy age !
'J':-e dtrecti *n and tendency of ?his Alaba
m i Convenu m are obvious. Its first move is
10 got ibo State Government imo other hands
th in luo*e that now hold K. This me'i-ure
n ceiTfeS the support of '' t?.e negroes and the
cxtr. me members."' Another proposition is
tj gj behi.id the record of courts in cases of
alk-g<?d c:ime and pursue some private feuds
in oublie law.
UJC more measure is supported by very
11 violent speeches.'' This is a measure of
wLoL'sale prascipjtiun and disfranchisement,
und tho Convention has determined, by a vote
of sixty-three tu twenty-two, that it will have
some such measure and will not leave disfran
chisement where i*. was left by thu military
bill. Tho Convention will carry Radicalism
further than CcngreS? dared. Proscription
is the word. Let tho people understand this
and tho result it must have. Remember that
i:< France, when the great revolution wa9
made?the men who made it knew where it
should stop, and desired to stop it there. All
tho patriots would have preserved order when
they had secured guarantees of public liberty,
but thu did not satisfy the 'actions. The
Sumners and Wendell Phillipscs of that time
urged cn ignoratice, brutality end barbarise,
atd the revolution became a war of classes
and a slaughter. This is the course marked
out for us. The American people sro satis
fied with the results of the war, and w'sh to
see order established on the basis laid down
iu the constitutional amendment.
But this wise limit is not enough for the
fanatics who have given power to the nigger,
and hence these latter are urged forward and
raise the cry of proscription. Will the people
permit this, or will they save the revolution
by the imperative demand that this nigger
carnival shall come to an ead? Congress,
radical as it was, dared only go a certain dis
tance in its pursuit of vengeance for fear of
thc people. Bu: it delegated its powers to the
niggers, and they are relied upon to go fur
ther. This is the plan that has put the law
making power of the South iuto the hands of
a mee that, in it- n itive land, never met in Con
vention for any other purpose but to roast and
eat itser.emies. There is butoneremcdy against
thc evil inherent in this plan, and that is the
immediate repeal, as soon as Congress comes
together, of the infamous laws under which
those SoUtLcrn Conventions arc to mee.,

RETURN OK TUB WANDERERS_The parti
colored bridal party, whose bliss was sudden
ly nipped in the bud by their arrest in Wil
mington, arrived i:i this city yesterday. The
woman was apparently indifferent, but her
sooty companion seemed to think it au excel
lent joke. Officer Gray, of thc Detective
force, wencto Wilmington for the lovers, and
brought them and their plunder back to their
old home. From the quantity of baggage
the pair had taken, it was evidently their in

visit some clime where miscegenation was
All or most of the property has been recov
ered, and tue guilty parties only await the
action of the injured husband.
The Wilmington papers give a detailed ac
count of their arrest in that city, and describe
the woman as fine looking, but desperately
euamored of her swarthy Lothario. It ?3 the
first instance cf the kind, we believe, that has
occurred in this city, and the best punishment
th: t could be inflicted would be to compel
the rauaways to marry.-Charleston Neus,
TUE COTTON TAX.-The Euiaula Xeics
learns from a prominent fellow-citizen, Col.
E. S. Shorter, who hasbecu incsrrespondence
wi;h Senator Henry Wilson, of Massachusetts,
iu reference to repealing ehe tax on our great
Southern s'aple, that he has received letter.!
from the Sjuator, and also from Mr. Colfax,
the Speaker of the House of Representatives,
announcing themselves in favor of a prompt
repeal of : he tax of two and a half cents per
pjund on cotton, and making the repealiug
law retroacting in it? operations, so it will go
back to tho first of last September.
A PBAIRIK FIRE.-The Cincinnati Times,
of the Sth, says :
We learn that as the train on thc 0. & M.
Railroad was approaching Vincennes, Ind.,
from the west, it was discovered that the
prairie west of the Wabash river, in Lawrence
c junty, Ll., was on fire-the whole country,
for twenty-five miles being completely envel
oped in flames. Houses, barns, fences, ?c.,
were being consumed, and it is highly proba
ble that uot all thc people living tn the vicin
ity escaped. At one point the train rau
through a body of fire, but with such swiftness
that the cars, and all inside, escaped uninjur
ed. The trestle work over the Wabash bot
tom, five miles west of Vincennes, which is
nearly of a milo lon;;, was enveloped in
flames, so that the passengers and baggage
were transfered to 'he side, and thc Western
train returned to this city.
THE EMIGRANTS TO LIBERIA.-A number
of freedmen, with their families, who hnve
made arrangements to sail in the Golconda,
have already arrived here. The larger nu m
ber came from Georgia. We learn from the
Agent, Mr. Coppinger, that the Golconda, ou
her arrival, will not come up to the wharf,
but will drop anchor and receive her passen
gers in the roads. This course has been
adopted for the purpose of expediting the ves
sol. The Columbus (Ga.) Inquirer, of the
12th instant, says :
Quite a crowd of negroes weat ofl'lrom this
city by yesterday's Macon train, bound for
Charleston and thence to Liberia. They were
collected hy tho beating of a drum, aud ap
peared to bo about two hundred in number.
VVe understand that many mo.e want togo,

Our other Georgia exchanges also chroni

of freedmen bound to Charlestou for Libera.

Senator Wilson, in a letter to a North

L caine hume from the S uth with thc convic
tion that tho colton tax ought to be repealed,
and that it ought to apply to the crop of this

by all 1 hear from y our section. I hope Con

Prom the views of members of Congress
who have been here recently, and others now
in the city, it appears that there is a ?trong
p obabiii'y tba-- the tax on cotton will be re
pealed shortly ulcer Congress convenes. Thc

MONTGOMERY, Nov. 1G.
In the Reconstruction Convention, a re?o

GEN. POPE VISITS THE CONVENTION.-Thc
Montgomery M ?il, of the b'th, says : " Major
General John Pope, ihe gentleman who tele
graphed to Washington ju^t before the second
Bull Run that he had succeeded in getting
between Stonewall Jackson and the rest of
General Lee's army, visited his menagerie at
the Capitol yesterday. Thc black monkeys
grinned, tho Yankee hyenas smiled, and
Mingham brayed. The distinguished van
quisher of the Injuns was invited to the
speaker's stand, and proceeded to orate. The
only important thing he said was that he
hoped that they would continue thc pluck
and wisdom with which they conducted the
recent political campaign. This was equiva
lent to saying that (hey must kee}) the lash
over the ebony members of the convention,
and send the Soargcant at-Arma to wake
them up when it was time to vote. After
ihe gallant captor of 10,OuO rebels at Corinth
finished shooting his mouth off, he deposited
his headquarters in a chair. Tho asse?
brayed again, the hyenas grinned, and the
niggers all went to sleep. In the words of
Busteed-"God save the Republic!"
And from the Montgomery Mail we cull
thc t^o arucxed paragraphs in iclation to
the proceedings of thc Convention :
"COME TO THIS BOSOM, MY OWN STRICKEN
DEAR."-A negro barber in the Piebald Con
vention moved yesterday that a portion of
the gallery be set aside for " de ladies." We
shall expect to see to-day thc councils of thc
State inspired by the presenco of a bevy of
ilainsel-. from Afc's sunny clime. Love rutea
the court, the c-imp, thc grove ! When
Griffin, Bingham and Keffer speak henceforth,
we shall see r>.-es showered from the galle
ries, and tho chamber infused with "Sabean
xlors Irom the spicy arms of Africa, the
j!?-sf," and when the ebony barber rises to
?ive his views upon questions of Ethnology
ind Political Economy, we shall bear shrieks
rom fair lips, and that blessed African chorus
-"Pm a gwinc to Hubbin a' relin and a'
ockin." How inspiring it will be for Judge
Peck or Major Semplo to feel that their clo
|Uencc is being taugled in the locks of fair
vornan. In the words of tho renowned Bus
eed : " God save the Republic."
NEGROPHOBIA.-The piebald concern at
he Capitol is fast on tho road toward miscege
lation. At the organization, when the elec
ion for doorkeeper crae up, three candidates
were announced, a white man of Montgomery
named Wagnon, a poor, old, debilitated man
with a large family; another while man of
North Alabama named Manning, a cripple,
and a slick, fat, able-bodied negro of Mont
gomery named Craig, who keeps a drinking
shop for dissipated negroes. The Conven
tion elected Craig. In ibu words of TJustced

To-day, Tuesday 19th, begins the Election for
the Rec ustruction Convention. And EdgeCcld
is literally swarming and fermontiDg with the
enfranchised and exultant blacks. Apparently,
Congo, Soudan and Guinea aro all congregated
hero. Wo understood yostcrdny that 1500 tickets
wcro hold in hand for this box. Too few by half,
if wc mistake not. By to-morrow afternoon,
when thc ?cone eloics, it is highly probable that
not less than threo thou3and ballots will have
been deposited at this place. Tho performances
are being con.lu ted in the Court IIouso. Thc
managers are the Registrars for the 7th Regt.
Ou this i.cca:ion there will bc no manocuvering,
no threats, no intimidation, no electioneering.
Tho negroes ba<o the whole thing emphatically
to themselves. Their candidates, seven in num
b T, tbreo of whom, wc understand, aro whito men
living in 'Gnisiteville, bavu no opponent*. No
white man will approach the polls. The blacks,
upon whose .'sou's tho emissaries of Radicalism
seem to bold a- feirlul bill of sale, will have two
dnys of uninterrupted nnd unalloyed glory.
Another scene to excito still further tho disgust",
'.be ridicule, lbj indignation, of tho awakoning
people of thc North and West!
Tremendous Excitement at Ilichard

Thc Meeting of Congress.
On Thursday next, the 21st inst., tho so-called
Congress will meet at Washington in adjourned
session; and on the 2nd of December following,
in regular session. Time bas boen when wo looked
with respectful interest for the news from Wash
ington. The best and most intellectual men of
the country used to ba sent to Congress, and wc
were in tho habit of reading their speeches w'tha
kind of veneration. But not so now; far from it!
Congress now-a-days is an illegal body, and the
places formerly occupied by decen:, honorable and
respectable men arc now filled, for tho most part,
by those who make no attempt to rostrain their
passions and prejudices, and nono to bide their
brazen di: honesty
But jet, during thc coming session, tho eyes of
tho country will be fixed upon these men with
moro iii ordinary intensity. How will thoy
begin? What will they do with that body of
death, thc ncgro-suffragc question ? Will they
declare thc new Constitution of Maryland no< re
publican because it rejects negro suffrage ? Will
they admit thc Senator from Maryland? Will they
admit thc Represen titives of Kentucky? Will
they force Stanton back inti the War Department ?
Will they begin to put Stevens, Sumner, Butler,
Wilson, and Co. gently acido? Will they go on
in tho'r headlong course, or will they attempt
compromises with the South ? In short, will they
heed or will they disregard thc popular intelli
gence which bas so lately, through diminished
majorities, rebuked and warned them ? If not
and that very quickly, and very practically,, and
very fruitfully-this samo popular intelligence
will, another year, assume a sterner mien and
scourge them forever from the places of authori

An Extremely Remarkable Dook.
" The'Negro : What Is His Ethnological Status ?"
This is tho title of a pamphlet, so remakablo, as to
its roasoniogs, it ; authorities, its doductions, its
research, as to bo absolutely startling. Its main
points arc these: Is the negro the progeny of
Ham? Is ho a descendant of Adam and Eve?
Hu ho a soul ? Or is ho a beast in God's nomen
clature? What is bis status us fixed by God in
croation? What is his relation to the white race?
For this pamphlet weare indobted to tho po
liteness of our much esteemed friend Mr. BAIIO.N
HOLMES, of Ibo famous " Holmes Book House" in
Charleston. It is published in Cincinnati, and thc
author assumes tho norn de plume of " AntHL."
Tho book is creating excitement wherever it ap
pears. And, though God forbid wo should ever
beliovo nil that " AniEt." endeavors to prove, wo
recommend tho pamphlet as in tho highest degree
original, curious, startling. Twonty-firo cents,
and a stamp for its transmission by mail, enclosed

More Pleasant Than Thc Singinf of
- Bird? In Spring!
Thc grand chorus which is being shoutci ont
iu tho North and West in behalf of popular lib
erty and % white man's government ! Last week
we alluded briefly to the result of tho lalo elec
tions in thoso sections of tho Union ; this ?eek
wo again tuko up thc plea?aut tbeuic. This grand
chorus was raised by Connecticut in March last,
when English, tho Democrat, beat Hawley, the
Radical, by a majority of 800; early thia foll, it
was taken up by California, Vermont and Maine;
later, by Ohio and Pennsylvania ; and now, Now
York, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey,
Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Kunsas swell
the volume until its echoes resound from the Lakes
to tho Gulf-from Maine to Mexico; confirming
the general fact that at last Radicalism bas found
its limits, that the lido of folly has ceased its
Hood, that the ebb has begun-that ebb which is
to sweep tho Republican party backwards into
thc deep sea of annihilation. And all this, truly,
should give hopo and encouragement to overyemo
who wishes well for his country.
No attempts which tho Republicans may make
to explaia away their late significant and forebod
ing defeats can bo of any avail. They ht.ve aol
been beaten by any lack of effort to ward off thc
blow, for never did they conduct campaigns witt
greater spirit, energy and perseverado-:, or with ti
more lavish expenditure of inonoy. No, the)
huvc been beaten because they hare governed toe
much and too perfidiously. The passions of ttl
las: six years arc rapidly dying out by tho er

It is certainly not the least striking characrei
is tic of this agc of fearless logic that the qucstio
of Woman-Suffrage should bnve acquired sue
prominence ; nor aro wo nt all surprised that, en

say nothing of less distinguished advocates o

Lucy Stones, the Abby Kellys, the Susan Anthe

and female advocates of equal rights, should hav
pushed on their efforts with such renewed an
But this question of Woman-Suffrage has late!
received a quietus; if not permanently, at lea?
for a long time. Kansas and Minnesota, in wliic
Slates the question has lately been before th
people at thc polls, bavo roted it down. Thos
States have said that nogroc? shall not roto, an
that women shall not vote. And as for Souther
women, wc well know that they will be no les
gratified at thu ono verdict thaa at tho other. I
i3 an old saying at the Souih-especially arnon,
aegrocs-and one worthy of all acceptation-tha

And thc question, to bc sure, will be advocate
in tho future with still greator por?iatency, bu
;e question whether with grenier success. Lue,

?? White Men Must Rule America."
Tho New York Day Book is a firm beliover and
a strong advocate of the incontrovertible doctrine
that "Wbito Men Must Rulo America." Or, in
other words, it is a thorough Democratic organ
and to be a Democrat ono must necessarily es
pouse the cause of the White Man. Tho Publish
ers of this nblo and excellont puper have just
issued their prospectus for 1863, from which we
extract as follows :
The New York Day-Book is a straightforward,.
Radical Democratic j.aper, with a larger circula
tion than any other Democratic journal ev:r pub
lished on this Continent, and it enters on tho
threshold of 1368 more prosperous, nnd mOre hope
ful of the great cause it upholds than ever before.
Standing on thc foundation of the Declaration of
Independence, that "all (\chite) meu are created
equal," and therefore entitled to equal rights, it
is opposed to all forms and. degrees of spocial
legislation that conflict with this grand central
THOTH of Democracy, and over all, and above all,
does it combat that monstrous treason to American
liberty, which, thrusting tho negro element into
our political system, MUST OF NECESSITY wreck
tho whole mighty fu bric left us by our lathers.
Qod bas created white men superior and negroes
inforior, and therefore all tho offort? of thc
past six years to ABOLISH His work and'equalize
with negroes-every law violated, every Stato
Constitution overthrown, every lifo sacrifi?d, and
every dollar expended, aro NECESSARILY just so
many steps towards national suicide: aod tho
simple and awful problem now upon us is just
this-shall wc recover our roason and rotraco our
steps, or march on to Mongrelism, social anarchy,
and the total ruin of our country.
The Day-Book, therefore, demands tho restora
tion of tho " Union ns it was"-A UNION OF CO
EQUAL STATES CPON THE WHITE BASIS as tho only
hopo, and thc only means possible under beaven
for saving the grand ideas of 1776, and the fun
damental principles of American liberty, and if
tho real friends of freedom, and tho earnest ho
norers in that sacred and glorious cause in which
tho men of the Revolution offered up their live.,
will now labor to cxposo tho ignorance, delusion
and treason of the Mongrol party, rr WILL SUC
CEED, and the wbito Republic of Washington be
restored again in all its original beneficence and
The Day-Book will, howevor, hereafter be moro
than ever devoted to all the varied purposes of n
newt paper. Conscious that it roaches thousands
of fami'i's who take no other journal, beyond
perhaps their local puper, it will continuo and
improve its " Nows of tho Week" Summary, so
as to present a transcript of the World's events
in each issuo. Its "Family Department" will
ombrace the best original and selected itorius. Its
" Agricultural Department" will bo fully sus
tained, and being the only paper of its clam made
up expressly for Country circulation, it is conn?
dent that it is worth double thc price of a weekly
hurriedly reprinted from A daily. It gives full

HORRIBLE DEATII.-For some days past
workmen have been engaged in building n
lew railroad bridge at Bridgeport, on ihe
Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad. Thc
old bridge has been raised on trestle work,
and if still used by trains, the new bridge
being built directly under ibc old. The side
railing has been taken oif the old bridge, and
there is scarcely room for a man to stand on
either side of thc track, while in soins places
there ;s not an inch of roora. These work
men were engngod at one end of the old bridge
yesterday morning, at work, when a negro
boy, employed by them, who was about the
centre of the bridge, started on a hand car
towards them. There being an incline of sev
era! feet between the centre and end of the
bridge, the boy found that he could not re
strain the impetus of tho car, and shouted for
the men to get out of thc way. Two of them
were able to do so, standing on tip-toe, bare
ly escaping being thrown off. The third man,
however, named George Cloud, was at n
point on the bridge where the traci was the
only foot hold. He was unable to move and
called to the boy to stop. It was too late.
Thc ear rushed onward, knocking the unfor
tunate man off thc bridge. Ile fell sixty feet,
striking his bend and side against a rock. As
I sis?ancc was rendered to Iii tn as soon ns pos
II sible, by his comrades, and it was found that
n he was still living, although terribly bruised.
Cloud lived an hour and a half after his fall
and then died in terrible agony-Chattanoo

SAVAN-NA?, Nov. 15, 18G7.
The petit jury was called and discharged
until 10 o'clock to morrow morning.
At the request of ex-Governor J.E.Brown,
aa counsel for Foster Bludgett, Mayor of Au
gusta, the graud jury were brought into court,
and after their names were called, the counsel
stated to the court that there was pending be
fore the gr?nd jury a charge of perjury against
said Blodgett, and proposed to challenge
several members of said jury on the ground
that they had been engaged in the late rebe!
lion, and ns counsel, he s-uid, because his cli
ent had reason to believe, and ?id believe,
that he would n<>t receive justice at the hands
of the jurors named.
After Loaring the argument of ex Governor
Brown in support of his motion, Delict At
torney Fitch, who was in New York at the
time of tho empanelling of the grand jury,
addressed the court in au eloquent and
spiritt d argument in opposition to thc mo
tion, in which he contended that it, was only
the Goverumeut that could take advantaged
the provisions of the act cf Congress passed
on the 17th of June, l8b'2. 12th, Statutes at

The District Attorney desiring farther time
to produce authorities in support of his posi

of the case until (J o'clock to morro.r morning.
A THIEF CAUGHT-In thc spring of 18G5,
while the families of Ge: eral Wade Hampton
and General John S. Preston, were refugees
in this town, a large portion of the family
plate and jewels were concealed in a retired
spot, near tin village, to protect them from
Sherman's M bummers." The " bummers"'
did not come as was expected; but the con
cealed valuables were stolen from their l iding
place, and not until a few days ago, did the
most vigilant searches avail anything towards
a discovery of thei" whereabouts.
On Saturday last, General Hampton re
ceived a telegram from Knoxville, Tennessee,
announcing the arrest of CUP Robert McLain,
with some of the lost valuables in his posses
sion ; and also a staloi.ient from McLain.
where thc remaiuder might be found.
On Tuesday evening a haul was made upon
thc remaining articles, which were concealed
in thc house of a brother, Alpheus McLean,
about three miles from tins place. This prop
erty is of a very valuable character, compris
ing jewels and plate, that have an untold val
ue lo the owners as family heir-looms. The
actual value of ?bc articles recovered in
Kno.\> ?Ile and here is probably about five or
six thousand dollars. Very few of the article.
are yet missing, and those of small value.
McLain will probablybcreturned to this plac<
for trial. Ho state?: that he found thc box
containing ?he valuable, while out hunting, a
few days after it was bidden; and having
once appropriated it, he could not command
coinage enough to return it to its lawful ow
ners. Very likely !-Yorkville Euquirer.
