GOVERNOR PERRY'S LETTER.
Ex-Governor PERRY wrote a letter to the
Editor of the New York Tribune, dated April
15, and wbioh is published in the issue of that
journal of May 3. The letter, quite a lengthy
document, treats of euch topics as we have
been frequently regaled with in the testimony
of (Southern men before the Beconstruotion
Commi'Jtoo in Washington. As tho Governor
was not undergoing the thumb-eorewing pro
cess at the time, be "was able to take a wider
range, and tell the men of the North fully
and circumstantially w?*t the condition of
?hje South is at present j discuses the ques
tions of suffrage and representation, aid after
showing up some of the leading fallaoies in
VOgUd among Northern logicians, he says:
"How unreasonable it is in you Northern me*
to suppose that we have lees sincero rGg?rd for
the negro than you have. It is against nature,
and contrary to all reason and experience. The
negroes have been our slaves and property, the
objects of our care at d attention. They are known
to us, and have lived with cs for years past. They
have descended to us from our ancestors, and
wero the objects of their care and solicitude. In
mauy instances, they and their progenitors have
been in our families for moro than a century.
Thore are others who have been raised by us, or
have grown up with us as companions, faithfully
serving us through life. Ia it not most likely that
we should, under these ciroums tances, feel a deeper
interest in their welfare than strangers? The
Southern people are not less humane, or less af
footionate, or less iaflnenced by sentiments of
honor, than the Northern people are. They are
as generous and as kind to persons in distress. I
think their history and character as a people show
this. Why. then, need, you trouble yourselves so
much about the protection of the negro ?"
lie next goes on to show what emancipa
tion has already dono for the negro race in
the South; in this confirming the testimony
lately given by Judge SHARKEY, of Missis
sippi, before the Central Directory at Wash
ington,-that the next United States Censas
would show a deorease of 25 per cent, in the
colored population ; the four millions of 1860,
would be found to be soaroely three millions
The influoDco exerted by the Freedmen's
Bureau, enoouraging the negro in idleness
and vice, is the next point made by Senator
PERRY. He then adverts to the alleged phi*
lanthropy, upon whioh all this guardianship
' of "the nation's warda" is based ; and he osei
' the following argumentum ad hominettt :
"It ron really and sincerely wish to protect and
' benefit the negro. Why do you not take him Nortb
. and provide for him ? The Southern people would
be verr glad to havo a large portion of them sent
', to yon, especially those who will not labor, and
whom you are now protecting in idleness at the
i espouse of the Southern people. Having them at
r home with yon, and immediately under your owi
f supervision, you may be able to benefit them. Bul
ilia impossible to do so when they are a thousand
miles from yon. While they romain in the Booth
3 ern ?tutes, they will have to look ultimately to the
Southern people for protection."
a And again he asks :
) "Why is it that you love the negro eo well ?ni
. hate the white race so muoh ? They have erret
' and gone astray, it ia true ; but they are nownon
. itent, and are asking mercy at your hands. Theil
9 punishment and suffering, it would seem, war?
h enough to satisfy tho most malignant revenge
and ought oertaiuly to appeal to a philanthrope
like yourself. Yon nhotua rornembor that then

- States guiltless of their country's wrong, who an

expoot to convince any of the Trilunc's read
ers of the error of their wayB. Iho Radioal
leaders, both in Congress and nowspaperdom,
olaim nothing short of infallibility. To call
auy of their measures in question is treason.
To doubt is to bo damned. Why should any
Southern man waste his breath iu an attempt
at reasoning with people so blindly and fa
natioally prejudiced ? Evory word Mr. PER
RY says is truth, but it will prodico no effect
with the parties to whom it is addressed.
Mr. GRESLEY inserted this biter in the
Tribune, and replies in an editoiial sermon,
boginning with "firstly" and going on to
"tcnthly," and in regular sermon stylo, winds
up with the usual "rousioation," as the back
woods proacher expressed it. lie answers

Under the tenth head of the aforementioned
"discourso," Brother GREELEY says :-"You
[i. e. Governor PERRY], and 1 aro not likely
to view the late rebellion alike. You hold it
an assertion of the right of self-government;
I regard it as the fruit of a conspiracy of
slaveholders to extend tho area and increase
the power of thoir infernal institution," otc
Mr. G. can at least claim the credit of con
sistency in this and many kindred assertions
wbioh havo formed his stock in trade for the
last five yours. As well talk of changing
the ./Ethiop's skin, as convince tho Editor of
the Tribune that be is mistaken. Why, he is
so very punctilious on the point of consis
tency, that if ho wore to believe the opposite,
nnd felt convinced of the truth of Governor
PERRY'S statements and deductions, he could
not afford to say so. What would become of
tho infallibility of the Tribune ? We fear it
is not by preaching the entente cordiale is to
be restored. And yet with ull his bias, preju
dice and fanaticism, we venture to Bay that
could Mr. GREELEY be induced to come
South, remain here for six months, mingle
freoly with the people, both block and white,
keep away from Post and Department Head
quarters and Freedmen'B Bureaus-come
without any "mission,"-forget all about the
Tribune,-with no "correspondence," "edito
rial," "special," or oooasional," and make the
best of his moans and opportunities for
observation,-our word for it he would re
turn to his Manhattan tripod a wiser and a
better man. Humbled and softened, he would,
perhaps, begin to doubt his own infallibility.
But while he remains in his office, the news
paper protagonist on the side of the Radi
cals in the straggle between Black and
White, such a conversion is.not to be looked
THE WAR UPON THE PRESIDENT. '
The New York Times, speaking .on the,
above subject, says quite truly."that the war
of words whioh Congrues has waged from the
commencement against the Presidont,iB taking
another form. The Senate has so amended
the Postoffice Bill as to deprive all officers
appointed by the President from compensa
tion ! This aggression, it is well to remem
ber, was wholly unprovoked. It is a wanton
assault upon the President. Party feeling,
in its most excited hoar, never went so far.
The large and enlightened majority in the
Senate, highly exasperated with General
JACKSON, never thus encroached, or rittempteu'
to encroach upon the Executive prerogative.
It did not occur to CLAY, WEHSTER, EWINO,
MANGUM, and other eminent statesmen, that
the Executive could be ignored, or that Con
gress could usurp the authority of the Presi
dent. Nor can power, thus abused, last long.
Parties, like individuals, can squander their
estates. Senators, with or without personal
fitness or popularity, who have been exempt
from responsibility while a common enemy
absorbed all. attention, will now bo called to
aooount. A sifting process awaits them.
They cannot, as heretofore, secure in their
plaoes, hurl their anathemas and fly their
poisoned arrows with impunity. Seats that
haye known, tbem op. long will soon know
them no more forever.
THE PLAN presented by the Committee en
Reconstruction is one to carry out the origi
nal and persistent design of the Radicals,
namely : to deprive the South of its Eleotoral
Vote in the next ohoioe of President. On
this point the Auburn, New York, Adver
tiser-a, Republican paper-flays:-"If the
South is exoluded from being represented in
Congress or in. the Eleotoral College, and
should choose, in connection with those
Northern States whioh may agree with them
as to their right of representation, electora
enough to constitute a majority of the Eleoto
ral College, is it to be supposed that the
President BO chosen could be peacefully ex
oluded from the Presidential office? And
the samo collision may ooour at the meeting
of the next Congress." The Advertiser pre*
sente this matter as one worthy of considera
tion. It certainly deserves it, indeed, at the
hands of all who properly appreciate the im
portance of peace and harmorvy to tho pub
lio welfare, says another Republican papsr.
