A SENSinLE NCGRo.-A friend fur.
nishes us-the following as the substance
of a speech made by a pegro man, in
a neighboring town, on the 4th of.July:
My Colored F-iends : I belong to
the same man I belonged to'whein I can
first remember. He has alwoys treated
me kindly, and. he is a perfect .eutleman,
because i have always trio' to do my
duty to my master. I expe t. to stay
with him as long as we bot live. I
intend to do the very best . for him I
can, and feel that in promoting his inter
est I am doing but good service to
Now, many colored people are of the
opinion that the way to be gentlemen
and ladies is to have nothing to do.
Now I tell you, people that will do no
thing will cut a poor figure int the world
after a while, for they will hive nothing
to go on. No true gentleman is lazy.
If yon vish to he gentlemen and ladies
you must work, and in ordgr to do this
successfully you. must have' something
to work with-you must hive a home,
land, and means of cultivating it. If
you leave your former masters you can't
have these. I have no doubt you have
all the necessaries of life in greater
abundance than you can have after you
leave your masters.
. My advice is for you to go home,
stay there, do all you can to please and
profit your msters and Heaven's richest
blessiugs will come upon you.
RECONSTRUCTION IN MI8siSIPP.
Governor Sharkey has been inaugurated
as Provisional Governor of the State of
Mississippi, and has issued his proclama
tion for re-organization. The appoint
monts which lie has submitted to the
Executive at Washington, include, we
are told, nearly every officer ol the late
Government. Under the piogramme
marked out by the (lovernor's 'proclama
tion, the State may be fullys restored to
all its former relations with the General
Government during tho-Te-sent year.
State elections may come off at the re
gular October elections. and the usual
representation sent to the United States
Congress at the next- regular seasion ol
that body-Columbia Phamir,.
MAXuIILIAN.-Affairs in Mexico ap.
pear to be in an extremely bad way.
Maximilian has been endeavoring for a
long time to enlist the sympathy and
support of the natives in'his belial,
but they will not listen to his promises,
and evince a dispo sition on.every pos
sible oceason to throw obstacles in the
path of his administration. The Empe
ror of the French, it is true, in the out
set, gave.his word that he would assist
Maximilian in bringing the Mexicans to
recognize the new form of Government;
but just at this tiiiie, now Jhat our civil
war is ended, our friend on the opposite
aide of the Atlantic has completely
changed his views. On the other hand,
the Liberal party havegained'confage at
the t urn events have taken in the Unied
States, and are determined now more
than ever to rid their country of all
usurpers and invaders. If Maximilian
is wise, he will not wait for our Gov
ernment to inthnate, to him that it ii
tinro he had packed his valise and wai
on his way to the other side, but will be
on the move at once.

sion; and at onL- time absolutely advoca
ted the secession of New York City in
1861, as an 'independent city,' but the
Abolitionists, both of New.Einglaid and
other Northern States, knew his weak
ness, and he, therefore, was easily conv.
erted to their views by the sight of gold.
It has been whispered that in the be
ginning of the war, this self same 'old
man' wrote a letter to Mr. Davis, then
the President of the Confederate States,
offering to support the policy of his Gov
ern-mnent for the sum of fifty thousand
pounds sterling-this is reported tobe a
fact by men of influence who are pre
sumed to know ; and as Mr. Davis
is now a prisoner in the hands of the
Government, we most respectfully sng.
gest that he be called' upon to acknowl
edge whether or not our asserti6n Ra cor
rect. Mr. Davis refused this disgusting
proposition. and hence the malignity of
this 'poor old man' to the South.
IMPORTANT FROM Mxico.--A re
port highly important, if true, regarding
Mexican affairs, comas frovi Matamoras
under date of the 15th instant. -It 'is
said that President Juarez had been
compelled to fly from Chihuahua. his
capital, and that that place had been
occupied by the imperial troops. It is
reported that the. soldiers of the late
Confederate' armies of the Soudh were
flocking to the imperial standard, and
that ten thousand of them were to go
to Sonora under ox-United States Sena
tor Gwinn, who, it was still confidently
asserted, would succeed in his )rojdets
for colonizing the Northern Mexican
States. There was also a report that
Caytaini Page, late of the Confederate
ram &owwail was. in Mexico. trying
to negotiate for the hale to Maximilian
of the ex-Confederate cruisers.
OUTRAGEOUS DEE.D.-,On Thursday
last, a most shocking and revolting deed
was committed in Henry county. Five
negro men, formerly slaves of one of the
Hairston's, violated a white girl namied
Davis, about 14 years of age, living in
that county, near the Pittsylvania line.
The girl is of a respeitable family and
her condition is said to be now very bad,
her recovery being doubtful. One of
[he villains was caught by some citizens
f the neighborhood arfd hung ; three
others have been caught, and expected
to meet a like fate, while one of them is
still at large . W e learn that the Pro
Yost Marshal at this place has sent men
in pursuit of him.-Danville R~egister.
