The Hew York Tribune on Secret Political
It is but a short time since that we
dwelt at some leogth od secret political
organizations like the Union Leagues,
the Grand Army of the Republic, and
otber similar secret combinations of
"pass-words aDd grips," and showed the
danger that their existence threatened
to the Union and all established ideas of
republicanism. 10 the views-which we
at this and other times expressed, we im?
agine there is not a Democratic or Con?
ger vativo journal in the country but would
. on the whole emphatically agree with us.
Bat we had hardly expected to have
brought to our notice an article (.vhich
' had escaped Our attention) from any Rad?
ical journal, and especially from the New
York Tribune, as pointed, severe and just
xu its condemnation of these secret polit
ical societies, and especially of the Grand
Army of the Republic, as any Conserva?
tive or Democratic paper could well pro?
duce. From journals of the fatter sort
wee-expect defence of American institu?
tions and ideas, relentless opposition to
any rising thought or power that threat?
ens to subvert them, and to every combi?
nation, of what sort soever, which, like the
Grand Army of the Republic, as the Tri
Suite asserts,is "inimical to the Constitution
anti the Union." From Radical journals,
ou the other hand, we have no good rea?
son to look for any such defence of Amer?
ican institutions and ideas, any such so?
licitude for their permanency, and such
hostility to all and everything, every or?
ganization, secret or open, that menaces
their existence or threatens to impair
their usefulness, or change their character.
In an article not long ago, condemna?
tory of the Grand Army of the Republic,
bought out by a. letter from Mr. Henry
W. Bennett, of Davenport, Iowa, calling
that paper to account for denouncing that
organization, the New York Tribune took
occasion to express itself with delibera?
tion as follows i
"These men combine for political pur?
poses. They propose to keep alive the
wrath and bitterness of that dreadful
time. They mean to control conventions
and nominate men to office?to perpetu?
ate in our civil system the bitterness of
war. We believe the soldier should re?
ceive abundant reward. When a soldier
and a civilian apply for office, all things
else being equal, we should prefer the sol?
dier. But we dislike this making a priv?
ileged class, and especially we dislike this
getting into a corner and having pass?
words and grips, and making an exclu?
sive class, i
' "Washington foresaw this when he
opposed the Society of the Cincinnati.
He saw in the association the first step
toward an aristocracy, and he declined to
ally himself with it. What Washington
said should be remembered now. Here
i? an association more numerous and more
powerful than the Cincinnati, which pur
noses to ever keep alive a war with
brothers and fellow-countrymen, to exult
in victories over Americans, to rejoice
over the destruction of men in whose
brae veins runs th?~blood which courses
in our own, and who, whatever their
crimes or errors, are of our own country.
We say let all the memories of the past
sink into the hell to which they belong ;
let us think only of the wounds to be
Ifealed, of harvests to grow again, of seas
once more covered with our commerce,
education for the ignorant, protection to
the oppressed, justice to all.
"We say this, and sacrifice none of the
principles defended by Mr. Bennott. He
is, no doubt, earnest in his belief that his
work is worthy. But there are craf?
ty, bold, bad men, who look upon these
societies as so many instruments for
their own advancement. They pro?
pose to ally themselves with this mil?
itary government, with no more claim
upon it than Thenardier, in Hugo's nov?
el, bad to be called the Sergeant of Wa?
terloo. He followed the array and robbed
the bodies of the slain. The true soldier
sheaths bis sword and buries it in his
closet, and it remains an heirloom. He
becomes a citizen, and makes no claim for
political honor but that of citizenship.
Above all things he does not carry his
epaulets and ribbons, his wounds and
braises, to a political convention, to be
^knocked down to the highest bidder,
^hereonay be many of these men unwit?
tingly m the Army of the Republic, who
probably entered with the views of Mr.
Bennett. They will soon see bow they
nay better occupy their time.
"Especially do we entertain these views
when we find in the declarations of these
secret soldier associations bo many ex
Eresslons of madness. The true soldier
i the most generous of foemen. Take
the great captains who commanded the
contending hosts. Do we find Grant, or
Sherman, or Sheridan, or Thomas, or
Jfteade, assembling togother and howling
$o> more blood, more strife, more bitter
t Do we find Lee, or Longstreet, or
Johnston, or. Beauregard insisting that
the bates of secession shall bo prolonged?
These men fought their fight and ended.
Their anger ceased with the echo of the
last guns fired in anger. From this Grand
Army of the Republic now parading
through political conventions in the Wost,
commanded by the captains of the caucus,
the lobby, and the bar-rooms, we appeal
*to the Grand Army of the Republic
which carried our banners over a hundred
$elda under the eye of Grant, Sherman
and Sheridan. We denouce this now se?
cret association as out of sympathy with
the true Republican party and as"inimi?
cal to the Constitution, and the Union.
It will be a sad day for our party when
soldiers find no better work than to prowl
over the battlefield of the past and dig
up the bodioi of the slain. The country
wants peaoo, and rest and harmony, and
Justice. Theso men want a distracted
country that officesTO&y bo*?|)nod. * They
would make America a'Mexico; peace
would be sent to sleep "with Turks and
infidels-, and, instead of Union, they would
'the wo]fuiest divieien make that ever fell
upon this'cursed, earth.'"
' Surely the Tribune should know its
own. ' Such is the character and such tho
purposes which the Tribune ascribes to
the Grand Army of the Republic, one of
the chief props and reliances of the tot?
tering Radical party. That it paints in
proper colors and draws with power and
truth the lineaments of this "secret sol?
dier association" ie spontaneously attest?
ed by the better sentiment of the coun?
try. None who find satisfaction, and
prophecy stability from, the good temper
of people, and who hate turbulency as a
condition of the public mind-threateriing
to the national welfare, can fail to Bee
that in this and other similar secret po?
litico-military organizations there is noth?
ing, good,.nothinginspiring, nothing hope
:ful, nothing that promises beneficial re?
sults, nothing on which to predicate peace,
union, harmony among toe people, true
republicanism in a Republic, or per'ma
inencyand solidity to the Government.
The motives, the feelings, the passions,
jthe purposes, the turbulence of temper
I which draw men together and unite them
in secret oath-bound political organisa?
tions of the sort ?f which we are ^peak?
ing, were never yet prophetic of good
and good ordor to the people ond govern
; men t among whom and under whieb they
are found. On the contrary, they are the
very elements that combine, in troubled
times and when opportunity is given, to
instigate and bring about revolutions and
overthrows, and" aro usually marshalled
to their work of insidious destruction by
the most daring spirit among those whom
i they league together, under tbe inspira?
tion of his inordinate and criminal ambi?
tion. As wo said before, the very exis?
tence of these combinations is prirna fade
evidence of somethihg wrong.
Had the Tribune any consistency or
conscience in the bitter and biting rebuke
which it administers to the Grand Army
of the Bepublic, and by necessity to its
own Radical party, for endeavoring "to
keep alive-a war with brothers," and "to
perpetuate in our civil system the bitter?
ness of war;" for "exulting in victories
over Americans;" for "rejoicing over the
destruction of men in whose blue- veins
runs the blood thai courses in our own,"
and for "howling for more bloodr more
strife, more bitterness," we might "hope
Ifor some good results to the country from
the Tribune's influence with its party to
I stay that party's headlong course of vio?
lence," hatred, and revenge. But its sin?
cerity is not to be trusted, and it is known
to be as shifting and irreliabic as a "fickle
j summer cloud," alternately condemning
!and maintaining the worst acts and the
most fire-brandish ideas of the party to
which it belongs. Nevertheless, it is im?
portant as home testimony to the extreme
unrepnblican and usurpations designs of
tbe Radical party, as indicated in the pro?
gramme of these secret political societies,
that the Tribune should be on the record
.for so scathing rebuke of this Grand Ar?
my of the Republic and kindred combi?
nations, to which it coold never have
been pushed but, in a sudden spasm of
scruples, by the dangerous, wild, and
revolutionary lengths to which its party
are going, as represented by these "se?
cret soldier associations," which are the
epitome of the party.?National Intelli?
The Cow Pea as a Fertilizer for Wheat.
We have long been satisfied, from actual
experiment, that the common cow pea of
tbe Southern States, when properly man?
aged, afford tho best and, at the same
time, the cheapest medium for the resto?
ration of our exhausted cotton fields. Its
effects have been as lasting and as marked
upon the fertility of our soils as that of
clover upon the worn and exhausted
lands of Virginia and Maryland.
The main reason why tbe cow pea has
not been heretofore extonsively used as a
fertilizer was owing to the fact that pre?
vious to emancipation our planters would
not give up a sufficient portion of their
lands to await tho rather slow effects of
this most valuable fertilizer. Now, how?
ever, when every planter has a large pro?
portion of his poor lands lying idle, there
is no excuse why the pea should not be
set in every field not absolutely necessa?
ry for corn or cotton.
Now is the best time to plant the pea,
and we desire to* give our agricultural
iriends the result of a careful experiment
made by a planter in Gwinnctt county to
encourage them to make similar efforts.
Our Gwinnett planter had a piece of
old exhausted land, twenty acres of
which had been lying in Broom sage for
si number of years. This he broke deep
with a turn plow in the Summer, and in
the succeeding Fall put down in wheat.
The crop, carefully measured, was a little
less than four bushels to the acre.
As soon as the wheat was cut he sow?
ed peas at the rate of two bushels to the
acre. Early in October the peas were
turned under with a deep furrow, and a
few weeks later wheat was sown and
carofnlly harrowed in upon the pea sod.
The yield from tho crop was nine bushels
to the acre, a little more than double the
first year's crop.
The field was again sown in peas as
soon as tho wheat was harvested and
turned under as before in the Fall, and
wheat sown upon the Boil. The yield
this year was seventeen and a half bushels.
Tho fourth year, with the same treat?
ment, he made twenty-seven bushels, and
this (the fifth year) tho crop bids fair to
make forty bushels. Nothing has been
applied to the land as a fertilizer except
tho pea, and we find that in five years,
with the cow pea alone, tho production
has been increased ten-fold. This actual
experiment speaks more for the pea than
any argument which we oould make.
We trust somo of our planting friends
will be induced to try tho pea on tho
next crop of wheat and let us know tho
result of their experiment,?Chrpnicleand
? An intolerable bore, having talked a
friend nearly out of his senses, finally
struck out on "the oyster," whioh he call?
ed "one of the most remarkable, speci?
mens of creative wisdom extant," when
his friend interrupted him, and "olosed
tbo debate," with exclaiming, "Tho oys?
ter! Ah, yei, tbe oyster is a glorious fel?
low : he always knows whon to shut up !"
An Exciting 'Political Incident. I r f
A dispatch from Clarksvil'e states that
ex-President Johnson was received there
on the evening of the 31st nit., by a very
large crowd with enthusiastic demonstra?
tions ef respect and gratification. The
speeoh of weloome was delivered by Hon.
Gus. A. Henry, who said he "had met
him on a hundred occasions before, but
never with greater pleasure."
This meeting between Gus. Henry and
Andy Johnson reealls to mind an inci?
dent of the old Whig and Democratic
campaigning in Tennessee. In 1853, Mr.
Henry, who, in connection, with the la?
mented Haskell, had successfully canvass?
ed the State as Elector on the Whig tick?
et in'the memoriable Scott and Pierce
campaign of the previous fall, was placed
in the field by the Whigs as their candi?
date for Governor. The Democratic con?
vention had already nominated Andrew
Johnson, and this was his first race for
Governor. Each was the favorite of his
party, and each had acquired prominence
because of his superior ability "on the
slump," which was then, more than now^
a necessity political accomplishment in
'Tennessee. Mr. Henry in his early cam?
paigns, besides the familiar appellation
of "Our Gus," bad also acquired the dis?
tinguishing sobriquet of the ,;,The Eagle
Orator," and by one or the other of these
designations he was almost in varibly men?
tioned by the Whig press of the State.
, The latter designation we always thought
exceedingly appropriate, for,, aside from
his soaring eloquence .there was some?
thing in the contour of his f ice and the
etateliness of his bearing that was strik?
ingly suggestive of the "proud bird of the
The Gubernatorial contest of '53 was a
most hotly contested one. The Whig*
who had just carried the State for Scott,
made strenuous efforts to retain their su?
premacy. The Democrats, on the other
band, were equally determined that Ten?
nessee should take her place in the party
that bad so recently swept the nation in
triumph. The champions, Henry and
Johnson, manifested no less zeal" than
their respective adherents, and many
'were the thrusts and stunning blows they
exchanged "upon the stump." Theircan
vass closed in Knoxville. An immense
crowd was present, and the excitement
? ran high, the confidence of the two par?
ties differing little in degree. Andrew
Johnson concluded the discussion. In
closing he spoke about in this wise:
"Fellow-citizens, it was with much re?
luctance and trepidation thai; I entered
this oanvass which is now brought to a
'dose. I say trepidation, because the ene?
my having counted over the names of all
their heroes and men of prowess, selected
my honorable competitor as the greatest
of them all, and placed their banner in
his hands. He was brought forth with a
flourish of trumpets and heralded to the
world as the 1 Eagle Orator.' A man of
my pretentions might have well been ap?
palled, and the less timid than myself,
might without cowardice have shrank
from such an encounter. But, fellow
citizens, I have been with this 'Eagle
Orator' throughout this contest. I have
met him upon every stump from Johnson
to Shelby, and now when I look upon
him (turning to Henry) Iseenofleshupon
his beak and no blood upon his talons." The
outburst of applause from the Democrats,
who were largely in the minority, was, of
course, tremendous, but, quick as thought,
Mr. Henry sprang to bis feet, with light?
ning in his eye and looking at least afoot
taller than ever before, as his voice rang
out like a trumpet. "Yes, fellow-citi?
zens, the eagle 18 a proud bird and
never deigns to prey upon a putrid
carcass." If the shouts of the Demo?
crats had been increased seven fold they
could not have been heard above the
Whig thunder at that moment. To this
day the Whigs who were prostat, willin
sist that in that little encounter "Our
Gus*' got Andy badly. Andy could well
afford it, however, for he got "Our Gus"
badly at the ballot-box.
We have no doubt Mr. Henry, who is
one of nature's noblemen, was sincere in
saying that he had never met Mr. John?
son "with greater pleasure before," for
his meetings heretofore, while always
honorable, were not of a kind, in politi?
cal parlance, denominated "pleasant."?

Humane awd Just.?The Rex. Mr. Frothingham
delivered a discourse in New York on the day of
j the decoration of the graves of the Union dead,
i which concluded as follows :
I I mean all who died in the war were equally vic?
tims. The southerner and the northerner?those
who fell with ns and those who fell against us, all
were victims laid on the same altar. i would wish
that we do all this as one nation: Let us strew these
flowers not on ntrthtrn graves alone, but on southern
graves also. They were equally hrave, they were
as equally faithful to their ideal; their valor was
common, their feeling was common, their endeavor
was common, and the same devotion to their cause
was common to each ; and each side was devoted
to its ideal?one side no less entirely than the
other. Northerner and southerner each cherished
his purposes, each had hope, each was full of con?
fidence of the ability of his God; each opened his
Bible; each made his prayers to the same Deity
who directed the battle; they were common vic?
tims, laid on a common altar, in a common cause.
Oh, we ought by this time to be able to do justice
to the purposes as well as to the spirit of our foes.
They bore more than we did; they sacrificed more
than we did. Their homes were burned over their
heads by fiery shells, ours were left untouched
They are obliged to bow their heads as conquered,
we are privileged to raise ours as conquerors. /
would drop a tear on one of their graves as quickly as
one of our -jwn ; and i am wilting to affirm that the
guilt was not their's alone. We were all sinners
together. * * * These men filled their place,
not shrinking, not swerving. They onlj knew
that they were under orders, and in their place.
Whoever they were, let us remember that they did
their duty; they were good soldiers. It was a
great word: sweet, lovely, it is to die for one's
country. a greater word is this : sweeter, lovelier,
is it so to live that one's country shall be sweet
and lovoly. ^
