NEW Yo-ik, September 2.--A few
words by way of suggestion to tt:e
Southern white people. The North
ern Republi.oai S press is at present in
lis'treasing sp asm over the "rebel"
outrages on the frcdinien. Every
report from the South of a collision
betwo61 the rabes is tortured into an
1rggVeasion on the pa't of the whites
and magnified into at in assaere of the
blacks. These distortions o'f the
truth are uqed to influence the State
and C6ngressional 'eleetion that are
pending in bearly every Northern
State. ,The argument is that the I
Republbean party must be kept still
longer in power, in order to prevent c
a, renewal of te reb6liton. I have
no doubt in my own Mind that near
ly all the hostile iffrays in the South, I

Aheir o!ly, the fact is telegraphed to e
he oioo* of the Attorney-geierAl- at g
Washington, as a rebel outrage.- ti
What I want to say is that it will be "
,he best policy for the whites to
n'hiktain thelr pationce to the very P
ast e:tremity. If th3y will control 'l
hemselvos during the next two '
nonths-, it is not likely thAt th'eir
em er ill "e'r be tried again. A
emocratic victory throughout the h
orth in November will put an end a'
