TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 12, 18G5.
A few days sineo we took occasion to rc
tnark upon tho uncortaint.es affecting enter
prise in this unhappy country, and, among
others, maintained that tho negroes might not
work, or their friends permit them, even if
inclined to do so. To this romark exception
has heon takon, and an officer of the Frced
mon's Bureau, whoso articlo wo publish, tells
us that it is not merely slanderous, hut con
voys a falso impression to tho puhlic, and an
nounces a fact to frcodmon which, it protonds,
is injurious, but which " cortaiuly could not
havo boon taught thorn from any other
This languago is harshor than was necessa
ry to tho efficiency and forco of the communi
cation; harshor, perhaps, than may havo been
intended, for tho author is of standing and
culture, and wo might, with propriety, havo
declined its publication; hut wo accept it. Wo
accopt it for tho reason that it oxihibits a sen
sibility to public sentiment. Such has been
tho apparent disregard of public fooling, pub
lic interest, and, wo will add, of public decen
cy, exhibited by persons professing to act as
friends of freedmen, that wo havo doubted
if thoy havo felt it any part of their mission
to respect "impressiouB on tho public,,>?con
siderate, porhaps, of impressions elsewhere,
they may havo boon,?for we presume no
human beings arc so lost to uaturo as not to
havo opinion of some sort for their rulo of
action; but not considerate of opinion hero;
and we aro pleased with the assuraucc that
such opinion, so respected, even to a slight
extent, has been our own."
We accept it for tho reason that it admits
tho obligation to act for tho public good.
This, also, wo had doubted. So perverse
has been tho conduct of these friends of freed
men?so utterly inconsistent with tho real
interests of blacks as well as whiles?that we
have doubted if they havo felt such obligation;
aud even now may doubt if it bo felt hy all.
But ovon hypocrisy, the tribute which vice
pays to virtue, is so fur commendablo as to
acknowledge virtue in the effort to assumo it;
and this article, if not strictly true of all to
whom applied, has'yet tho merit of admitting
the obligation to respect tho public good, and
of accopting that as tho principle by which
action may bo tested. Wo accept it, also, for
reason of the satisfaction we find, even when
charged that we havo slandered them, in tho
assuranco of at le.ist ono respectablo person
that tlioy can bo slandered.
But moro especially do wo accept it for the
reason that it is tho entry of a defence for
thcic friends of freedmen, and raises tho ques
tion of their merits to the judgment of an en
lightened public. That question wo nccept
upon the point at issue, and say that wo were
warranted in our apprehensions of such bale
ful influence upon tho character and conduct
of the negro. Wo wero warranted by the
conduct of these friends of freedmen. Instant
upon tho occupation of the country there
was the persistent effort to disturb existing
order. Freedmen wero enticed from their
homes nnd their employments; processions
wore formed; inflammatory addresses wore
mado; tho men who had come to pray with
them, or upon them, wont with them to tho
throne of Eternal Grace to protest of their
wrongs; and as nothing seemed so near to
their hearts as the injury of masters, even at
the expense of Blavea, it was not unreasonable
to suppose that a polioy to that offect had bo
come established, nnd was to be remorselessly
pursued until its miserable instruments should
become its victims.
We were warranted by the consequences of
their conduct. They found the negro in order,
they brought him to disorder; they found him
industrious, they have made him idle; they
found him in homes, they have mado him
houseless; they found him in comfort, they
havo brought him to want: thoy found him in
poaco with masters upon whom yet he must
of necessity dopend for tho employment ne
cessary to subsistence, and they have brought
him to estrangement so porfect, that nothing
but the hnrd necessities of their condition can
bring them into contact; and in view of such
conduct and such conBequencos, we were not
unwarranted in tho apprehension that still
that malignant spirit might prevail; that tho
seeds of ruin so industriously sown might still
bo cultivated; that the negro might bo kept
to his work of appointed ovil to tho end; and
that is is not still their purpose, as it would
seem to be tho result of their action, to com
plete tho work inaugurated in tho war, and
extinguish the last lingering spark of vitality
nnd bop.o which may yot faintly illumino the
wido-sproxid ruin of tho land.
But it is said that this is not tho purpose of
the. Freedmen'? Bureau, for that all their
utterances aro aguiiitt it. Porhaps not; and
then it follows that there are friends of freed
men who are not of that organization, nnd
that the work may Still go on, nr?d tho pur
pose consummated,'witbtwt that more efficient
agowoy. ' .; . ; '.'.-n? ;..;, '..
. Nor do we say that such result is within
tho ultimate purpose of thems?lvos or others.
They may mo?? >ell.,'^?^avo boon too
often misconceived not to be charitable* and
the officer who writes us hns the reputation of
being highly conscientious; but it is rather
with the tendency, than the intention?tho ef
forts, than the purpose?of nets that wc havo
concern. When blown to tho winds of hoaven
by the projects of some ?impla engineer, it is
of little alleviation to our sulVorings to learn
that that was not his object; and again to be
instructed in the oft repeated lesson that the
heaviest calamities of life may come not from
liut wc have failed to sec that such is not
the tendency of even that organization. Wo
are referred to tho orders of (ho 2d instant.
It had been more to tho credit of that body if
tlmt order bad been published sooner. Wc
aro rofcrrcd to public addresses to tho frood
men. There aro some of tho public speeches
to frecdmen, and from officers of that bureau,
that would not stand tho test of criticism, aud
it had boon bettor for tho unhappy victims of
that oratory to havo boon spared its inspira
tions. We aro told the whole "burden of
orders of late, as well as verbal instructions,
bos been to a renewal of contracts." And
why, then, do they not contract? Under
whose influonco are they, but of thoso friends
of freedmen, either in or out of tho Froodmon's
Bureau? Why is it that planters who never
locked their doors at night, now hesitate to
visit their places? "Why, to those long oxilod
from their places on Edisto?tho account of
whoso visit is published in another column?
was thcro the common responso that thoy
would not work under their former masters?
Is this repugnanco of their own nature? It
was not so before tho intervention of others;
negroes had so much confidence in no others
as those they had alwa3*s known ns mastors.
Is it from tho conduct of their former ownors?
Tlieso had not been pormitttcd to seo them
before. Or if it be intended to assume that
it is the purpose af the L'rccdmen's Bureau, in
good faith, to encourage tho restoration of re
lations between frecdmen and their former
owners, why is it that these orders were not
published sooner? Why have owners not been
permitted soonor to revisit their estates upon
the seaboard? Why, when it was intendod
to givo opportunities to owners to visit Edisto,
was not moro than ono day's notice given?
Despite the apparent fairness of tho Frccd
mcir's Bureau, it is still responsible for much
that has occurred, and is justly linble to the
censure due to the result, if not the purpose,
of a want of concurrence between tho whites
aud blacks in tho labor of our country. They
havo surrendered lands, claimed to bo aban
doned, to just claims, with reluctance; they
have interposed their claim to hold lands,
taken as abandoned, notwithstanding the par
don of tho President; they havo forborne to
recognize tho right to reclamation of lands
upon tho islands and tho adjacent main, until
forced to make it, and they make it with re
luctance, and the interposition of every incon
venient form and rcf-uisition. An officer of
this organization, high in this Stato, has
declared his conviction of the proprioty, and
his wish, that the lands 6houId be divided be
tween the whites and blacks.
Tho purpose, therefore, is declared, in terms
and by necessary implication, that thore shall
bo lands reserved, to somo extent, for the
exclusive occupation of the blacks; that it is
not intended, therefore, that thcro shall be
further noccssary dependenco between the
races for support: aud whether, under the
influence of this course and purpose, or by
more direct teachings, t_o negroes havo como
to the common belief that they are to be cared
for; that thoy are to have some better stato
provided than they can find with whito pro
prietors; nud that thoy should not bo inclined
to enter such relations, or accept of such ser
vice. The suggestion, therefore, is not without
warrant, even with respect to that bureau, that
they may have other objects for the negro; that
it is not, in perfect faith, their purposo to re
store him to tho f?elas of formor owners; that
thore is some other Eulopia of which he is tho
fitting colonist; that he may not, even if ho
would, forego the opportunities of that bright
destiny to the meaner labors necessary to
subsistence; und that ho must live or die,
inexorably, to the realization of that bright
idea by which it has been determined that his
fortunes or his fate shall be illuminated.
