Some weeks ago, a correspondent
published a communication through
our columns, in which ho proposed
the donation of a specifiod proportion
of our lands to bona fide im:nigrants.
Our readers have doubtless remarked
the numerous responses the proposi.
tion has elicited ; but they may not be
aware that they all proceed from os
tinable and practical gentlemen of
It is true beyond a question, that
the tendency of immigration is to
move upon similar lines of latitudo.
TheSouthron does not readily move
northward, nor a northern man to a
southern home. Inured to their own
climate, they seek in their new settle
ments a similar. This, fact, acting in
conjunction with the more potent in
fluence of our political insecurity,
renders it perfectly apparent that ex
traordinary inducements must bo of
fered the foreigner, to tempt him
hither. In our opinion, these gentle
men have hit upon the right plan.
They have struck the most practical
idea of the time. They see that it is
the best possiblo investment to make
of at present utter useless capital.
They see a line climate and capable
soil occupied by ia population utterly
inaderuate, from the paucity of its
white members and the inefficiency
of its labor, to its proper cultivation.
They see our lands depreciated and
enterprises languish from the sonic
cause and hence they understand that
the paramount desideratum is to
bring hero a hardy and thrifty popula
tion to develop our magnificent ca
pacities. . A successful acconmplish
ment of this plan would embrace in
it comprehensive results, a solution of
all our perplexing questions, political
and natural. It would enhance four
fold the value of our lands, it would
increase our productions, it would set
our people an example of thrift, fru
galIty, and skill, in the management
of farms, and abo~vo all, it would set
ilc thme political prolem in favor of~
civilivzation end deceney. So necessa
ry is this event and so valueless our'
lands now, that it would bo real wvis
domi and economy to pay a bonus to
settlers to occupy them. TJhis muay
nmot be feasible, the ether certainly is.
It is certtin, noth ing less will induce
thmi to come among us. We have
not only to conbat the natural laws of
such movemonts, but thme prejudices
against our section, the apprehensions
of our future, the associations of kin
dred that would draw them in the
beaton track and the determined pur
pose of the north and the northwest,
to kee.p themi from the South.
We are glad to see the matter agi
tated. It is practical and wise.
There is regenerat~ion and salvation in
It. It is apparent, from the rcsponses
made, comning from all sectionrs of the
District, that it would be a popular
measure. Can't we give it a definite
shape. Its importance calls for-or

President's Aequ ttal. vi
A telegraphic dispatch on Tuesday u
evening announced the final triumph C
of the President in the great impeach- of
ment trial. On that day, a, voto was
taken, as stated, on two additional ar
ticles with the same result, as upon
the voto on 11th article, and the
court adjourned sine die. Thus has
terminated an audacious, unserupu- C
lous and malignant effort of an un- j<
principled party to subject the govern- o
ment to their purposes. This result
has been attained by the firm position
of Fessenden, Trumbull and a few
other radical senators. To save our
life we cannot entertain any feelings j
"f obligation on the subject. The
whole political life of these very san- ti
tors, his been one continued warfare It
upon the South, and cruel cowardly op- i,
pression of her in her helplessness and
tribulation. That they cannot now fol
low their party to this extreme point ,
of depravity, only bespeaks them a lit
tle less insonsiblo to the dishonesty q
and infamy of their colleagues. It is
a refreshing instance of retributive
justice to see how all the vials of d
wrath of a discomfited party are being r
poured upon their heads.
The following is taken from paper c
published at Bangor, Maine. It
breathes an air of broad, national feel. v
ing and sympathy that has heretofore 0
been unusual in that icy latitude. It t
is perfectly inevitable that a party 1
representing just., humane and inaturnl
ideas as the l)omocratie party does, t
must speedily destroy radicalisi a
born of war and living upon the pas
sions of the hour.
We hog of our editorial brethrrn in
the Soutlh to dismiss from their minds r
any apprehensions, that. any portion of l
the Democratic party of the North - will
fail heartiy '.o support our nominee for
President, onl account of the position he
may have !aken during the war There
is now no disposition among Democrats I
to revive and-keep alive the dissentions f
that existed in their ranks prior to and
dtiring the war. ''liey are all buried,
nil hi who attemptst to dig thom ny inp
this canvass, will be scorned aliko by
those who were formerly called peace t
Democrats and by those known as war
Democrats. "lst the dead past bury its t
dead," is the motto of the hour. There
is no desire among peace Democrats to
proscrihe those who honestly advocated
a war for the restoration of the Union; n
nor is there any desire among those who c
honestly engaged in the war, to pro- c
scribte those whlo cried for peaice, because
they hontestly believed the wa r would
restlt in the overt hrow of liberty. Thtose
whIo represent.t that a ditl'eren t fechng i
pervades iho ranks of the D~emocra tici
party, are failso to facts, andh do so for
liut, the popularity of Mr. Pendleton 's
idea is not confined to the great WVest
and North-west. It. is poplatr eery- I
where among the miasses of the people.
Thtat, idea lias done teni-fold more to
harmnonize, consohdato and strengtheni
lhe Demnocrattic party of Maine. thtan all
othmer ideas and expedlient s thaut have t
beeni advtanlced or tried during the past I
fifteen years. It was that, idea, whtich I
last winter, in our Legislature, bronght
peace Democrats aiid war Democrats till
together ini one bend, and gave birth
to that admirable minority report, whicht
faiind an eco in thie breast, not only of
every Detmocrat in the State, bitt of c
thousnds of haboring Rlepublicans. It
was that idea whtich led the Democracy
of this Congressional District, in theire
late Conventtin for the choice of dele-e
gates to the New York Convention, to I
declare with such enthusiasm andl inan
imity, for the statesmnan representation
of' it-thu lion. George IH. Pendle
The Result in Georgia,
As in South Carolina, says an ox
ohanige, so in (leorgia. Negro R adi
cal supremtacy has been establish- I
ed over the whtito people of bothr
States. The actual result of the ..
late elections in Georgia has not
been officially announced ; but enough r
is known to make certain the fact the
Democrats, although they fought a y
good fight, have not triumphed. Ru- f
fus B. Blulluok, the Negro-Radieal
candidate for Governor, is oloetod by b
a small majority. The Negro-R adi- 'I
cal Constitution has boon ratified by |d
a majority not far from ton thousand 8
votes Moade tolographts to Grant ji

W. L. ROSBOROUGII,
fr. Editor :
During my absence from the Dis
-iot, I saw the response of Mr. Rut
mnd to the brief card written by me
i sending you his secession address of
850. It was neither my desire then
or is it my intention at this moment
involve myself in so unprofitable a
ontest as a newspaper controversy.
'I.e 'maro's nest" that I discovered,
as, it appears, given much unensi
esa to that cemarkable moan who un.
ertakes to prove by his simple deela
ation, that the position of a secession
t of 1850, and that of a negro-radi.
al of 1868 are identical !
In his letter there is no artimcnt.
,hich could, by the severest stretch
f con rt.osy be so called, consequently
herelis nothing to answer. Though

The Senator might have spared
Himself the task of ad initting the in
hIence of "selfish motives" upon his
olitical course. To all who have
vatehed his course and uoted his ae
ion d uring the political "regonora

ower is patent. I cannot accede to
ho Snator's proposition to the show
f "hearts." The spectacle of sordid
elfishness, ignorant folly, and malig
ant prejudice afforded by the action

ut penetrating to the secret springs

hinks I am unleasy, I ean onily say

11mph1 andl are acceded to me by thme
