It ib not surprising that the presence of the j

proRouee inoffensive. We have been Informed, and
believe it tobe true, that tho general in command j
of tlii? department, aware of the tooling existing i
on this subject, and porceptiro of evils likely to
result, has regretted the necessity of sending col
ored troops to the Interior. Hut having the duty
to perform, and so huge a portion of his command ?
of aueb troops, he has had nw option. Tlie iiwtrno
..(fame, htnyin-er, ?hayu always been to eiil'irec the
strictest, discipline, ami to allow aa little to be ?lone |
as possible to offend the one race, or onfavoraUy
affect the other. Tbe.se ordert?, we are assured anil
liolicve, there baa generally been a zealous effort
?Jo escrute; but it were scarcely possible that they
< could be executed perfectly;?or, if executed per
fectly, it were scarcely possible that some nicasuro
of ill-conuequenccs should not occur,? that our citi
zona should not Und in that fact the subject for
?np.oasaut feeling, und that the mere preBoncc of
the colored troops should not bo the occasion or
excuse for irregularities Li the colored race. Theac
irregular it iea have occurred in many sections.
"Property baa been trespassed upon, disorders and
outragea have been committed, feelings, of hostil
ity exhibited by those, doubtless, of whom, in every
section there may be aome, who are not incited to
disorder by those troops, but who sei/.c upon the
occasion to do what thoy were but too rendy to do
"without,?but still they arc exhibited. The fact is
coincident with thcao military visitations. Tho
troops themselves arc not always perfectly unex
ceptionable. There often are some who cannot
always be under military surveillance; and the fact,
therefore, of the presence of these troops has often
lieen injurious,?the feeling of uneasiness and irri
tation ia constant, and it is to be fcarod that these
facts, at some lime or other, may cauao disturb

unnceeaaury und gratuitous, may natuiallvoecomo

There arc several sections of thrState as perfectly
loyal, as perfectly ready to aT"0?0--' '" *? ft"*?
accomplished, as any othci'soetioiis ?if the Union,
Where this feeling exists. and ?b exhibition, radar
the prcsont ciicumat>*'CC3, would be moat deplo
rable. The contest* ended. There is not a man,
we p?cenme, with?? the limits of tliis Stato who
dreams of its rroouimciicement. Tho illusion, in
dustriously k4?t nP ky publications at the North,
that Hieraus a sonBO of hostility and a smoulder
ing pur pise of outbroak upon tho authorities of
the ?jt-iicral Governuicut, has not the slightest
foundation in fact.
l?io pcoplo of this State, at least, are not re
joiced at the proaont state of our affaira; it ia
not the end thoy aimed at, nor ia it in accord
. ancc with conceptions of their interest and
well-being which they havo cherished for years;
Jmt they are, at least, rejoiced that the war is
?vor; that tho turmoil ?b at laat ended; that illn
oivo UoppH of iiidcpondonco aro finally dispelled,
and that there ia, at least, the opportunity of ex
tpj'.ndiug all that wo have of character, manhood,
JLUil activity, in tho career of a nation bo abundant
of power and promise as the one with which our
fortunes are now so indiasolubly associated.
Hut. while this is so, it ia to bo feared that it is not
generally realized. The publications to which wo
have referred, would imply that it ia not desired,
perhaps, that it should be; and the occurrence of
?ny such act of violence as wo have indicated,
however uatural to tho occasion, however suscep
tible of explanation, in consistence with a scnti
tuent of loyalty, however simply the expression of
individual feeling, would be a very great calamity.
It would give color to charges against us, of au
thority for the statements to oui" prejudice, and a
warrant to the continuance of garrisons through
out tho country, and for the oxercieo of military
authority moro stringent and severe than there
Las yet been the occasion to impose.
Under theso circumstance?,, tho citizens of our
country arc ander tho highest obligation to accept,
with composure, the present condition of affaira,
and to stand to their condition, however bitter or
. severe it may be, with a fortitude and firmness in
spired by a aenac of duty. We aro assured that gra
tuitous wrong, injury, or inconvenience even, is not
intended by our preaont military authorities. We
are assured that our present painful trials of
transition will soon bo over; that soon we shall
have lived down the last lingering impressions to
the prejudice of our perfect faith hi the acceptance
?of the present order; and that, by tho practice of
the virtuo wo commend, wo will again re-enter tho
sisterhood of States, and find, together with rolief
from public hostility, tho common, civil and po
litical securities for our individual rights.

?9Tcgro SuiTiagc-The Fall Elections at the
It might rcu?oiiably bo thought that there wero
other questions preaahig upon public attention, of
far greater importance than the one of negro suf
frage. Horo we aro, just at tho close of a pro
tracted, floreo and exhausting war. Tho swell of
the great wavo of human passion has not yet sub
sided. Tho wiscat and most sanguino aro waiting
with anxious patienco to aee the fractured parts
tnauifost symptoms of knitting togethor again.
We at tho South aro entirely without political
issues. Wo aro certain of nothing but the bnrden
-S01U011088 of tho next few years. Our relations
with tho great sootlon with which wo havo lately
been at war are not changed enough, and are
not likely to bo for aomo timo, for trade to start in
?to old and well-worn channels. Tho feelings of
our poeplo aro by no means understood abroad,
nor docs it Bocm that any groat effort to that end
la thought desirable by a very great section of tho
North. While doubt and misapprehension con
fuses ua, and nothing is so much needed as timo
.and a wise patience to show us tho tine way out of
?our great calamity, anil to suggest the surest
method of a real rouinion?tifo cry is suddenly
raised in tho North that every thing which is of
-vital necessity shall bo sot aside, and an attempt
be first made to rodtico to practice a theory having
no natural couuectiou. with tho question of re
organization, and cortain to work still'wider mis
?chicf by koopin? popular passions at tho South in
.at state of continual iuUammation.
It seems to us that tho question of greatest iin
porUnco just now to tho wholo country is that
which will tend to pacify, within a reasonably
; abort timo, tho Southern States, and which would
Impresa upon both North and South tho necessity
?of nuking early provision for tho futuro. Tho
jgroat ftnaucial problom that looms portentously in
the sky c?rtainly morita Us precedence, as com
pared with the question whothor Congress shall or
--ahall not assume tho power to make plantation
'ffavoe, juat become fteo, fuU-hlowu electora in tho
State- where they aro. We know it is claimed by
the advocates of Congressional interference for in
discriminate nogro suffrage at the .South, that oth
erwise there would not be a sufficient loyal popu
lation to exorcise the electoral privil?ge; but thut
aaaomptiou is fatal to the very object they have in
view, since it would prematurely disfranchise
eight millions of whites, for tho sake of giving
the Sttfirago to three millions of Macks, and main
tain the former, if that were possible, in a stato of
subjection to the latter.
Negro suffrage, however, appears to have been
resolutely taken up by tho Radicals a_ tho great
question upon which to go before the people.
They will have this brought forward now, let other
questions be perilously neglected or not. It does
not seem that their anxiety is to receive back their
Southern fellow-countrymen into tho relations of
citizenship, but to keep them out of those relations
entirely, unless the nogro shall first bo made a
voler, without qualification, and at their hands.
But the fall elections in the Northern States aro
fortunately coming on. The Radicals, possibly,
feel that they can safely turn their backs upon tho
lesson these elections may teach, but not ao the
more thoughtful and conservativo, who have for a
time consented to be classed with them. Already
it is plain that there is a disinclination in tho party
in the great States of New York, Pennsylvania, aud
Ohio, to adopt the radical theory before going into
the fall canvass. They feav for tho result of such
, a step. The New York Republicans will not incor
porate Uic nogro suffrage plank in their platform,
for they are sure tho people will leavo them in tho
minority. Col. Fonxr.Y warns the party in Penn
sylvania?through his paper, tho Press?against
so suicidal a measure. Aud the recent letter of
Gen. Cox, of Ohio, the rogulav Republican candi
date for Governor, for which the Radicals have
just refused to support him, b additional evidence
that they see which way tho current of p?--tc
opinion decidedly sets.
,- ? _
The idea which seems w impress the minds of
our young men, at th?' tiu?<N lliat ?f emigrating to
Brax.il, appear? to ?'rt the most preposterous of any
that could taVC entered their heads. We cannot
ancient*?-*, why, fan the first place, they should
leave their native homes, and in the next, why
Mk-v should select Brazil as their future abode.
It striken us that a little reflection, on tholr part,
would dampen somewhat the ardor at present ex
hibited to quit the spot where they were born and
rained, where the bones of their ancestors arc
laid, where the tcndeiest affections are entwined
around them, and where, perhaps, they may have
encountered ills, and make them reluctant to ' fly
to those they know not of." Do they for a moment
think they are to live as in a paradise, without
troiibles and trials; aud if they are assaulted by
them, do they suppose they aro to Hoc like
cowards, and not face them as they would any
other foe? We hope not. Wo desire that they
pause and consider what is due to their people?
thathcrc is where they are wanted and must be
here their services, as good and law-abiding citi
zens, arc required, and they must remain. They
arc now going through a purgation, the result of
circumstances, but they will come from it cleansed
and purified, a credit to themselves and an honor
to the country. Who can expect the sharp edges
of feeling created by war, to he rounded or dulled
in a day? Certainly no one. But time has already
bogan to bhuit them, and in its course their keen
ness will altogether vanish.
Tho next thing we wish to know is, why do they
desire to settle in Brazil ? Is it because it is a
slave country ? Why, in ten years there will be
no slavery in South Amcrioo., or anyu-horo oleo on
this continent. The abolishing of it in the United
States settles it in the ontiro western hemisphere.
Besides, slavery there is not as it was with us, a
patriarchal institution; but a system of tyranny
and oppression that would be so repulsive to them,
as to make them imagine themselves Le a land of
horrors. Their style of living?their, ceremonies
of religion?would please at first through their
novelty; but as days rolled on, and longings for
home occupied the heart, the mind would turn to
the simple observances they were taught in child
hood, and they would feel that they had committed
an error?an irremediable error.
Then remain at home where you aro known and
appreciated; and although there may be poverty
now, there will soon be abundance. Dark clouds,
perhapB, are now hovering over you, but they will
-soon disperse, and a brighter day will show itself
in the prosperity of your State, and, consequently,
your own success.
Mexican Affairs In Purls.
The following is extracted from the Paris corres
pondence, August 11, of tho N. Y. Times. The
writer is, doubtless, the ablest and best informed
of any of the European correspondents who write
for American journals, and what he says is there
fore entitled to considerable weight :
Paris, August 11.?Just as the political world
had made up its mind to a universal c-lm, just as
the baggago of the last diplomat was being
strapped for the summer vacation, here come big
words from Germany, words of war and defiance,
about that invsterious and fatiguing bone of con
tention, Schleswig-Holstein. The idea of a war
between Prussia and Austria about anything is so
absurd And so impossible that people naturally ex
claim : "Querelle d'Allemande' But in fact, so
much has been said to Austria about the desire of
Prussia to swallow up all Germany, so constantly
has that power been cautioned about tho ambition
and tho intrigues of the statesmen of Prussia, that
it is no wonder if she at last takes alarm and tries
tho clhcacy of big words. It will all ond in big
words, however, and the peace of Europe is not
likely to bo distiu'bcd again about this little corner
of earth on the Baltic.
A paper states positively that three thousand
men are soon to uo taken from one place, and,
three thousand from another, to be sent to tho
Army of Mexico, and this statement has not been
contradicted by tho official press. This press de
clared a month ago that no troops were to he sent
to Moxico, excopt to make good the losses in tho
regiments already there; but is not this number of
six thousand rather a large figure for one instal
ment? Another journal stated tho other day, with
out being contradicted, that it would require more
troops, that is to say, a larger army than tho pres
ent army of occnpatlon of Moxico, to establish
Ecaco and order in the country. This seems to
o, in fact, tho general opinion, and if that army
is to be increased, Mexico will become nothing
moro nor less than a French colony. There was
a moment of hesitation in the French Govern
ment, a hesitation caused by the renewed at
tempts of the National party in Mexico, during
wlrfch tho government did not know whether
it was best to give up tho contest or to send
out moro troops. But tho prcssuro brought to
hoar in favor or tho latter course was too tremen
dous to bo resisted, and the "work of civilization"
in to go on. Tho termination of tho term of elec
tion of President Juarez in November was tho
principal inducement in favor of a continuance of
the war. We shall soon soe whether this circum
stanco will put a stop to the efforts of tho National
party, and whether, if it does not, tho French
Government wUl have the courage to continuo tho
struggle. Ono would suppose that the patience of
tho French peoplo, and oven of tho Government,
would not resist much longer.
The groat international naval exhibition, which
is to tako place next week at Brest, is the subject
of much talk and oxcitcmont in certain quarters.
We hear the question often asked why the United
States is not to bo ropresonted on tho occasion by
some of hor ndw model men-of-war: but nobody
seems to bo able to answer the question.

It has boon stated la some of the papers that a

to tako Mr. Foster's pardon and sign it, endorsing
the applicant, and leaving tho impression that Mr.
Foster was a personal friend of his, and that he
asked for it upon that ground. Ho in no manner
represented himself r.u Mr. Poster's attorney. The
lerntest was granted, and the pardon wai delivered

along the Alabama river arc prevented reaching

In a speech, at Chilicothe, Ohio, on Wednesday
last, General Schonck, in speaking of reconstruc
tion in tho South and tho difficulties attending it,
said that ho recently had a conference with Prosi

regarded tho local civil governments established
in the rebellious States merely as experiments, to
give the people an opportunity to ?now whether
thoy are possessed of a truly loyal spirit, and aro
disposed to act in good faith towards the national
government. In tho meantime, ho intended to

being no longer any rebel armies in tho fiold, tho
war is ended. Ho tells them that, though the
robel military organizations are disbanded, it can
not be assumed that the war ia fully concluded,
and the term of their service completed, since
civil authority is not yot rostorod in the rebellious
