TU'ESDAY MORNING ULY .
The price of an copy of le Tms.
WEEKLY NEws is ten cents. We are
forced to this charge from the simple
fact that when we purchase the necessa
ries of ifea we are compelled to pay two
prices for them, and hetice we have to,
chargo in the same spirit for our labor.
It wil be found that we give a very
large amount of reading mitter, and the
work ,we put in our paper, makes it well
worth the small pittance asked for it
per single copy. For. one month we
will send the paper for One Dollar, and
for one copy our charge is ten cents,
either in coin or grepnbacks.

The present chief magistrate of the

trade a tailor, an occupation eminently
fitting him for taking su'ch measures of

the tomr 4iag) demands. Suits, civil or

the Executive every facility in his sarto

past experience, is well fitted for repair
ing breeches, whether of National faith,
or of nether integikments. Congress,
there is scarcely a rational doubt, will
so far relax its conscience, as to appro-.
priate any amount of money that may
be required, either by themselves, or the
executive; in fact they have already
cloted the President with full power,
and any goose may see, and any cab.

o/# p.d1 n Wednesdae ~214
.40w, 18 S- at the mee held fJo
tOeiestoration of the civil Oemmine1s
of South Carolina.
During the absence of the committee
to prepare resolutions for the action of
he meeting, Mr. Bovca being called
upon, rose and addressed the people as
MA. PRESIDENT : I approve of the
object of the meeting. It is greatly to
our interest tQ have civil government es
tablished in the State. By the theory
of our institutions, while a few great in
terests are exclusively confided to the
Federal authority, a large mass. of legis
lation is reserved to the States individu
ally. The sooner - we have' a State
Government in operation, the sooner we
will have control over our local legis.
latioin, and thp soondr we may look for
the withdrawal of military authority.
The military, it is true, are acting, so far
as I have learned, both in this State and
adjoining States, with great propriety.
But still it is preferable to live under a civ
il government. I am satisfied from what
I learned at Washington that President
Johnson will extend to this State tho
same privilege of establishing the State
Government that he has and is extending
to the States of North Carolina, Missis
sippi, Alabama and Georgia, &c. No
discrimination will be made against this
State. I am satisfied that the Presi
dent is ready to establish our State Gov
ernment as soon as he thinks public opin
ion is ripe for it. .Tlie object of this meet
ing is to make known the sense of the
people of this District on the subject.
From all I can learn upon this poiut,
and I have taken every opportunity of
informing myself of the wishes of the
people of the State, I ant satisfied the
great mass of the people, by an over
whelinig majority, amounting almost to
unanimity, earnestly desire the estab
lishment of State authority in entire har
mony with the government of the
United States. , I apprehend that in
this large meeting, there will be but
one cpinion on the subject.
I might stop here, but I presume you
desire to hear something of my late visit
go Washington. At the instance of
some of our most influential citizens, I
went on to see the President of the
United States. I had been well ac
quainted witht him as a member of the
Senate of the United States. I had
heard so much of him, his talents, the
obstacles he had overcome, and the con
trohng influence lie had acquired in his
State, that I took pains to form his ac.
quaintance, and observed him with deep
interest. I knew that a man who had
accomplished what he had, who from
the most adverse position had risen, to
be successively, a member of the Legis
lature, member of Congress, Governor,
and Senator was no ordinary man. I
respected in him the man who had
erected his own statue, and found Mr.
Johnson to be a man of remarkable tal
ents, imnntense energy, great good sense,
a strong Wil, with' perfeot self-reliance,
a man who belonged to. himself and not
. No one can have greater abhorrence
of that ineffably stupid crime, the assasi
nainof Mr. Lincoln, than I have, but
I do not think that thereby the Sointhuern
States have fallen into the hand of a
cruel tyrant, as has been imegined -by
some. Emancipation is conceded to 'be a
fixed fact. President Johnson, I am sat
isfied, will deal wvith our peolile in no
ungenerous spirit. All who accept the
existing order of things, who, in good'
faith, desire to be peaceful and loyal citi
zens, will, as a genegal rule, in my opmi
ion, experieece Ohe clemency of the gov
ernment. On the great question of the
right of suffrage in thtse. Sta~es;Pregi.
dont Johnson has taken the conserva
tive position of referriag the matter to
the States the'mselves. For thib he has

Bista,)lpacifction with the North.
Every man should lend himself to this
work. Whoever 'dons a kindness to
a Northern man is doing a wise thing
for his country. Let us forget the hor.
rible struggle through which: we have
passed'as much as we can. Let us look
beforo'us and not behind us. Let
not despair of our country. Go is
wiser than we are. The history of
tions is the judgment of God. Let us
acquiese in that destiny from which
there is no appeal. Slavery .is gone,
but all is not lost. Our fortunes are
shattered, we are poor I indeed, but the
heavens are still above us, and though
the way before us is 'rugged, lot us with
great hearts move forward to fulfil
our mission, whatever it may be.
We will soon be invited to resume
our position as one of the U nited States,
on terms of perfect equality. As we
have iad the greatest war upon record,
so I trust we may have the greatest
peace. Upon ourselves will. depend in
a very large degree how advantageous
this peace shall be to us. If we are
wise there is still hope for us in the fu
ture. If we are weak every step will
only plunge us deeper into the Serbo.

fluence of new ideas. We must not
listen to our passions,. but to our reason.
And the future may be more auspi.

MEssAos OP THE GovERNon OF
DELAwARn.-The Wilmington Repub
lican thus speaks of the message of
Governor Saulsbury, of Delaware, to
the Legislature of that State:'
, He is greatly opposed to certain meas=
ures which were deemed necesssary to
restrain the expression of sentiments in
favor of rebellion..and enters into a long
argument to prove that the rebels who
have laid down their arms should be
restored to the exercise of every political
right'and privilege His own sympathies
with them can readily be inferred from
the opinions he )ias expressed. I- is
also very much alhrined by the efforts
which are being biade to elevate the
negro race, and urges that there should
be no relaxation of legislative restrictions
n this State in regard to them. He is
haunted by the. fear of "negro eqnality,"
and cannot realize that equality bef-ire
the law does not mean social equarity.
His argument in regard to the loyalty of
the people of our State, and the injustice
of the restrictions imposed by the military
authority is in accordsce with the claims
of thqmen who aided 'and 'encouraged
the rebellion-men who argued that.the
rebelion could inotebe put down, and
never voted apian nor a Aollar to put it
down, nor for any one- who. did. His
partisans have openly and repeatedly
hurraed for Jeff, Davis, yet they were
all good Union men.' We have not
time nor patience to 'comment on such
barefaced hypocrisy, and therefore
dismiss the matter by the amark .that
the Governor appears to belong to a
class who never reocive a new opinion
nor regndiate an old one, no matter how
mischievous tim' nay show it to-be.

A.Leun ot dnoe AaTrue PoliOy.
Our friends will believe us when we
tell then that there is a party still here
in the North--the party of strife and dis.
cord, the party of blood and fiendish hate,
and that ic will leave no means untried
to provoke them to uprisings, to futile 1
and sanguinary insurrections*in this and
that localty in the hope that it will thus
be afforded more pretexts for the execu r
tion of its devilish designs. At present
this part, is engage in the fiendish,
but we believe impracticable, work of
incitirg the maases of the Northern peo
ple to a xe war upon the South ; and 9
two distinct parties are being formed
upon the issue which it has presented to
the country. We regard this movement
as an exceedingly auspicious one for the
South, and, therefore, we desire that
nothing shall be done by the Southern
people that will aid or strengthen it in
any way. This issue has been presented F
to the public by Wendell Phillips and has
already produced quite a sensation
throughout the North. le has aiinounc
ed it as the intenrion of the faction, or
party of which he is the head, to e dvo
cate repudiation of our great and crush
ing war debt, if the emancipated negro
is by the radical abolitionists. There
can be no evading the question .now ;
the. inferior race shall or shall not
be allowed the right ,to vote, and
everything else that follows a d accom- I
planies that refused equal politn al rights
wit the white voters. We are glad
that the matter has been at last brought
to a head, and that the people of the
North must take their stand upon one
side or other of the line which has been
drawn, right--social equality, official posi
tion and intercourse with the white
population in all the relations of life.
The radicals have thus defined their
position, and they have already com
menced the now warby assailing-who?
President Johnson. They do not, as
we sulspected froni the very first, like
him; they are dissatisfied with certain
indications he' has thus far given of hIs
policy, and they have all their iro arOus
ed by their knowledge of the fact that
he has determined to leave the question
ofnegro suffrage to be decided by the
States themselves. No man knows bet
jer than he that the granting of sush
political power would be employed to
isdisatlvantage liereafter,. and that it
would affect his prospects of re-election
t6 an injurious degree. Hfek 6annot
yield to the radicals, and the resolute.
stand lw has taken at' the outset proves
that lie is determined not to yield to
I'ow, there is only one thing that can
alter this new position of parties,.and
give strength to the faction whieh de
mands political a~qlity for the negro
local outbreaks a d insurrections in the
Southern States. All provocations must
be met by a firin determination not to be
driven or seduced into such a disastrous,
such a ruinous course. The efforts of
the Abolitiotiists will be directed to
wards the embroilment of the people of
the South with the Administraiton. that,
they may thus control its policy, as they
tQ a great extent controlled tbat of the
late President. It will-be their purpose
to re-establish military rule ever the

to p if possible, the restoration of

diace it to a desert, but we believe, not
withstanding the late, proclamation of
President Johnison, that it is his design
to defeat 'their plans, and although no
p artisan of his in any sense, sve believe
ho is entitled to the support of every true
friepd of the South in his efforts in this
direction. Certain allowances must be
mado. for the position in which he is
plsoed, and full credit must be awarded
for what has-beena ahteady done, and we
say tA at for the firm stand he has tqken on
tis moat serious <question of negro syf
frage the friendsv of the South have every
'reason to feel gratfied. Standing by it
self, this is indeed a favotable indication,
and while we have not hesitated to speak
without reserve of the character of his so
called ttmnesty proclamation, while lee
have given frete expieuson to opr views
upon the arbitrary, unconstitutional, an
ti-Dlemderatic and un-American, policy
set 'forth in its .fourteen' exceptions, we
