Uuions. JAMES CHESNUT,
Chairman Executive Coniiittee,
Thomas Jefferson said:
p -Nothing is more certainly writteu
d in the book of fate than that these
. people (the slaves) are to be free.
y Nor is it less certain that the two
I races equally free cannot live in the
d same yocernantent. Nature, habit,
e opinion have drawn indelible lines of
e distinction between them. It is still
h in our power to diract the process
e (colonization) peaceably. * * *.
f If on the contrary it is left to force
S itself on, human nature must shudder
at the prospect. We should in vain
look for an exan>ple in the Spauis'
C deportation, or depletion of the Moors.
This would fall short of our case."
' Daniel Webster said:
e "If these infernal fanatics and
abolitionists ever get the power into
s their hands they will override the
Constitution, set the Supreme Court
at defiance, Ihange and make laws to
suit themselves, lay violent hands on
those who differ with them in opinion
and dare question theirinfallibility, and
ally bankrupt the country and deluge
it in Hood."
John C. Calhoun said*:
f "If emancipation ever should be
1 effected it will be through the agency
y of the Federal Government, con
trolled by the domiiant power of
- the Northern States of the Confed
eracy against the resistance and strug
i gie of the Southern. It can only be
i effected by the prostration of the
white race: and that would necessar
t ily engender the bitterest feelings of
- hostility between them aud the North.
- Owing their emancipation to them,
- they could regard them as friends,
e guardians and patrons, and centre
accordingly, all their sympathy in
t them. The people of the North would
not fail to reciprocate and favor them
instead of the whites. Under the
influence of such feeling, and imi
pelled by fanaticism and love of power,
f they .vould not stop at emancipation.
Another step weuld be taken to raise
i them to a political and social equality
- wcith thier formuer ou-ners by giving
- them the right of voting and holding
t Dublic offices under the Federal Gay
r Again he says :"Raised to an
I equality, they could become the fast
political associates of the North, act
ingr and voting with them on all ques
tions, and by this political union be
tween them, holding the white race
in the South inl compqlete subject ion.
The blacks and the profligate whites
that might unite with them could be
come the principal recipients of the
Federal offices and patronge, and
would in consequence be raised above
the wchites in the South in the politi
cal and social scale."
The Peace Cause is as old as the
Christian religion, but the first Peace
Society of modern tie,was oran
ied in the City of New York in the
Summer of l11, when the sad re-.
sults of our last war with Great Britian
were vet fresh in the minds of the
people. Thirteen years later, the
Amnericcu Peace Society was formed
n Boston, so that it has be-en in opera
tioni more than forty-five years. Its
objects are to precerd wars between
nationis and rebellions at home. If it
cennuot prevent all such, it will not la-1
bor in vain if it for-estalls one in a
hundred, any more than Tenmperanice
Societies, because thev cannot abolish
Peace Societies in our country and
Europe, hope to accomplish their ob
jects by b ringing the truth, and espe
cially the truth of the Gospel, to bear
on the custothi of war. They propose,
as substitutes for it, mutual forbear
ance-negzotiation-arbitration, a n d
ultimately a Congress, or High Court of
Nations, to settle national difficulties.
So numerous and iinfluential h-ave they
become, that they have already done
much for the miaintainmaee of peace.
But much more must be done, or the
demon of war will continue to curse our
country and the world.
The American Peace Society has
various appliances for i nfineneing pub.
lie sentiment. It publishes a month
ly periodical-t h e "Advocate of
Peace," which is worthy of wide cir
culation. It has on its catalogue
about one hundr-ed differe,t books and
tracts written with great ability. and
containing facts, argumuents, incidents,
and illust-ations which arie perfectly
convincing. It employs ag~ents andl
and colporteurs to bring the cause be
fore the people by the living voice
and the circulation of its publications.
It bespeaks the aid of Editors, Mlinis
ters, Teachers, and all others in itsI

and thousands of other philanthropists

A Temperance Organization fbr
the Colored People.
For a long time the importance of
organizing temperance societies aiong
the colored people has been felt by all
who have the general prosperity of
the cause at heart. It is patent that
since the war intemperate drinking has
made sad havoc among the negroes.
Whiskey is the cause of more than
half their troubles. Something should
be done to check its reckless use. A f
great difficulty has herutofore been in 0
the way of organizing qocieties amioni
theu. As a matter of course they e
could not be admitted as members of b
the orders in existence to which the I
white people belong, and they them- 0
selves are not disposed to go into ay e
thing, of the kind unless the organiza- C
tion is very similar to those of the 3
whites. We learn that the Executive 11
Committee of the Independent Order f
of Good Templars of South Carolina
have concluded to organize an order
for the colored people similar to their h
own, and have appointed Rev. H. M.
Mood, G. W. C. T., to prepare a p
We are glad this step has been Y
taken, and wish it successful fruition.
Temperance organizations have ac
complished a good work among the
whites. It is reasonable to expect a s<
like result among the colored people. fi
Death of Wm. F. Durisoe, Esq., si
The last issue of the Edgefield Ad
vertiser conveys the sad news of the h
death of Wi. F. Durisoe, Sr., of
Edgefield. 'Mr. Durisoc was attend- o
ing the funeral of his brother in-law.
Goodwyn 3. Roper, Esq., and while a
descending a steep and rough hill, the
mule which he drove becoming unruly, a

buggy in his efforts to control him.
The fall resulted fatally after twenty- *,
six hours of suffering, his head having is

he .Jalapa country has no bad fiainers,
1though one man in it is accused of do
ny his best farming on tho road. This
ndividual, it is said, farms between
ralapa and the five mile post. We
vould not be surprised if some of his
scusers were not tainted with the same
nelination. While perambulating about
ately, we also visited the Beth Eden
