perhaps, tho desiro of tho white troops to retire

It is true, that we havo submitted to emancipa
tion with reluctar-co; true, thatbotweon the races
'?mH ?thrown unprepared into relations new oa?
?strange, for which they were prepared by r*> ?
periefico or intellectual preconception of its con
.xlitions, there are diversities of vicirs, conflicting
conceptions of right, and naturally and necessa
rily disturbances between them; but it is not true
.-that there is tho disposition in the whites to co
croc, oppross, and peraccuto tho ?lacks. On the
contrary, thero is a conception ?if the situation,
-aijd the lights aud obligations vomiting, infinitely
more accurate and just than cm possibly exiat
among any other people. To U3 it is ? vast and
vital subject?uot for speculation, but for action.
Wo aro hero brought faco to fate with another
arace, with whom it is of the vory last importance
that our relations should bo friondly?with whom
it is of tho vory last importance ttat wo shall con

suits, whose vcll-being ia indiBpuisablc to ovory
interest, to every hopo, in fact, nf progress and
prosperity?and in whom, therefore, and whoso
welfare, we have a concern infinit-ly greater thau
can possibly bo felt by the people who. so compla
? cenUy solace themselves with tfco lucubrations of
that journal to which wo havi referred. To
them the fate of the negro is a speculative qucs
' rtion; to us it is intensely practical;?to them it is
not important if, like the Indian, he shall expiro to
"point a moral or adorn a talc;"*' to ua it is of the
laet importance that ho shall stiud and prosper.
?He in yet a part of our population; he is a part of
?our society; his labor is tho condition of existence
Jfco aU our operations and interests. If he shall
?continue a cheerful worker, a valuable member of
a?nr aociety, a choerful nnd accordant constituent
?or our social state, w<J cau yet move on in prosper
ity and peace; but if ho shall not? if estrange
ments occur aud antagonism and hostility result,
ibero is no hope fbr ua?no hope for tho prosorva
fionof our interests; every State becomes a battlo
ground, the preservation of individual existence
?t3omiy the subject of the contest, and the negro
falls, if fa"! he muat, drapod with cvory interest,
cope, and prospect of the land.
To mon pledged by such fearful considerations,
<o proper and becoming acta towards tho negro,
it is an outrage, that their conduct should bo the
. eubject of euch flippant comment, and that our
course should bo disturbed by the acts such corn
?saent is likely to inspire. We had not sought our
late relation to the negro raco. Their presence
' here w.*ib ratkor tho result of accidont than of any
.effort of our own. When no lonjer profitablo at
the North, they were sold to us. While with ua,
we have given thorn the disciplino and form of so
il! government which seemed suited to their
wants. The propriety of that government is ex
"hlbitod in a career of peace, order and well-be
ing between races in* contact so ?Ustinct, which is
-sjntfaout a parallel in human history; and even now,
though overruled in our co?rso,' instructed by men

-bave a kind remembrance of tho relations that
Jiavc-heretofore existed. 'We recognize his claim,
as a human being, to a common share of human

NInetocn-twentieths, aye more, r>r the employees
of the departments are hostile to the policy of the
rresldcnt. The bureaus, almost without excep
tion, arc presided over by his political foes, who
have crammed thoir respectivo offices with tho
bitterest of radicals and negro worshippers. With
gomo few designing exceptions, used for a disguise,
no applicant is appointed by them who is not un
qualinodiy committed to negro suffrage and equal
ii; ; and no omployco, however efficient and com
petent, ?h not promoted* who is not of the same
! stripe. This proscription ami favoritism has bo
! come a studied system in many of tlih bureaus.
Unless a Jacobin, no applicant for position or can
didate for promotion stands tho ghost of a chance
in any bureau presided over by a Puritan. For in
stance, as I am credibly informell by a gentleman
of ability and intogrity. in tho room in which he is
employed are niuo "clerks, eight of whom arc
avowedly opposed to the Presulcnt's reconstruc
tion policy, aro in favor of negro suffrage, and
havo no more decency or Bcnse of propriety than
to hold offico under an administration to which
they aro violently opposed And fciiia mum is not
an pxcoption. Tho bureau is of the same sonti
ment. Politically, it is a perfect Augean stable, i
and should bo cleaned out with more than a Her
culean energy. Tho ?bbuo presented to tho coun

The political shines of John W. Forney recently
(though notumiBod to them) have disgusted even
tho few who retained any confidence in him. Tho
Chroniclo published andmanifeetly endorsed Gen.
Cox's reply to tho solf-conatituted Oborlin Com
inittoo, in wlji?h t'ue General opposed negi'? suf
frage Throe days thereafter it published approv
ingly the lottcr of tho ox-rebel Foote, favoring ne
gro suffrago. Tho Jacobins hero arc confident that
the Chronicle, now leaning towards thorn, will
soon throw off its disguiso, and onlist, body and
soul, in thoir cause. In last Sunday's issue it pub
lished tho item that whilo Prentice of tho Louis
oillc Journal, denounces tho rebellion, .his son, as
local editor, glorifies it. Disgusting as this is in
th? Journal, it is not more so than the figure cut
by tho Chronicle, which, as a journal, opposes the
President's Southern reconstruction policy, Bides
with the Jacobins, whilo Forney, its editor anel
proprietor, as "Occasional," indulges in the most
fulsome laudations of tho President personally,
and would slobber upon him if permuted. It is
understood that in order to retain the Secretary
ship of tho Senate, Forney has cast the Chronicle
with tho Jacobins: while, to obtain tho recognition
of tho President, he hides his real character, and
" Rends the pregnant hinges of tho knee,
Tliat thrift may follow fawning."
Tho President ''lore long see the necessity of
ridding himself ..' thiB incubus. I verily bollovo
that one-twentieth of all those dancing attendance,
from day to day, upon the President for office,'fee.,

or recommendatory ? soliciting Executive favor.

j Generals Lee ami Grant as Historians.
The following we clip from an exchange :
Tho two loading Oencrals of the late war, Leo
and Grant, are now engaged in writing up the his
tory of thoir respectivo campaigns. In both casos
wo suppose that tho histories will be almost pnrely
military in thoir. character. Lee, howover wLU
havo some advanta?o ovor Grant, in that his' his
tory will not bo made in the. form of an official re
port, and hence, ho can indulge in greater discur
siveness of statement and a greater iroodom of
stylo than i?'c??tomary in official documents.
Grant is a very close and accurate writer, and
wo may say that Leo in gonorsi has tho samo cha
racteristics. Tho last of Grant'?campaign, of which
thus far ho' has given us a fid roporf, was that
which was crowned with tho iplondid victory at
Chattanooga in tho latter prf t of 1803; and wo
havo always considered that rnort as the master
-ptecb of military writing andnilltary philosophy
?that tho war has produced. Tfe last fidl military
