The arrival of a cargo of eighty
aeven negroes from Jamaica in New
Orleans, week before last, to work on
a sugar plantation, and the return of
the vessel for another cargo, proves
that this country i, being regarded by
the black race as the one in which
they are boat treated and can live in
most happily. So soon as Cuba frees
her slaves and Pr.zil follows suit, a
large supply of labor for our fields
and of voters to offset the Yankee
preponderance of numbers in the
Union, will be at the command of the
South. These blacks, brought here
to the land of liberty by the money of
the Southern whites, will feel none of
that jealousy of them entertained by
their former slaves, and voting with
the whites, will give them power in
the Union. Indeed, in ten years, the
negro vote will have harmonized
with the white vote here, or will have
been overcome Ly it, and like the
lead in a loaded bowie knife, will
give additional impetus and power to 1
the opinions of the Southern whites,
their natural and inevitable loaders,
in the counsels of the Union. Hence
the short-aightedness of Southern
men being crazy to tack on to the tail
of the national Democratic party. We
can do better than that. We ern
have a policy of our own, and can
inaugurate the CONSTITUTIONAL Par
ty that the whole country now needs.
Intellect,ual Rticeance--A flit1
The editor of the WzINnono Na8
is fond of talking freely, and yet he
defies any ene to point to the occasion,
from early boyhood to the present day,
upon which he ever carried a tale, or
made mischief between friends or
neighbors by the wagging of his
tongue. Talking is a dangerous thing,
and if a man can do a great deal of
it, and yet make no one mics, you ean
?et it down that lhe is neither maisobie
vious nor malIcions, and that, with all
his tongue-wagging, he uinderstands
the propriety of MOnAL nETICENCE, or
of talking discreetly, where that ea
eod thing calle<d CHARACTER is involv
ed1. And we once made this remark
of a friend who had made sport of our
fondness for talking : "Yes, nta may
well be reticent.; for the truth is, the'
rascal is so full of hard, angular dog
matism, and bitter, unreasoning 'pre
judices, that did ho do one half of,
thne talking 1 do, he woul<d.soon beg <
his bread." It is a feather, then, in I
our eap, that we can talk, and yet
