WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 14, 1866.
It has rarely happened that any people hat
been in such a state of uncertainty apon the
subject of their legal, rights as are the people
of the Southern States at the present time. A
revolution so radical has seldom been before.
Thc? political gtruoluvo l.txa liaon ovorthrown:
constitutions have been abrogated; a people
who have governed themselves have hopelessly
come to the government of others; four years
of legislation has been run upon them without
their knowledge of the fact; for four years they
were violating laws of whose existence they
were unconscious; their domestic relations
have been broken; that which was property
has become a people; nn enormous chattel inter
est has been withdrawn from us, to be vested
with legal rights we are bound to respect; for
the purchase of that property they incurred
obligations after it was declared not to be pro
perty by the General Government; real and
personal estate was purchased by men who
were declared by acts of Congress not to be
capable of making legal contracts; for four
years and more our only medium of exchange
was a currency which is now declared to have had
no legal existence; in that currency debts were
paid; in referense to that, obligations were in
curred; in that currency and in bonds of the
Confederacy the estates of minors, lunatics and
distributees of decedents were invested; in
that were paid the prooceds of sales into I he
hands of public officers; the debts due to men
and merchants at the North were taken by force
of the then existing law into the Confederate
Treasury,-and from all these varied facts result
a mass of legal questions without a parallel in
human history. They affect the rights of all
classes and conditions. There is scarce an in
dividual, from infancy to age, without somt^
interest involved; upon these there has yet
been no opportunity for adjudication; upon
facts 80 novel there is no one can determine
what the adjudication will be; the pre-existing
law is but an insufficient guide to them; and
such a state of uncertainty, therefore, in refer
ence lo their legal rights, has rarely disturbed
the peace and composure of a people.
Among these questions tho most interesting,
perhaps, arises in reference to the validity of
obligations incurred in the purchase of negro
property. Negroes were regarded as property
long after Hi ey were declared not to be BO by
proclamation of the President, undor the au
thority of an act of Congress; and to debts so
contracted there is a very common feeling that
there is the right to plead a want, or failure of,
consideration. The general allegation is that,
inasmuch as they were not slaves by reason of
a proclamation which, whatever may have been
its legal efficacy, carne in fact to have the force
and effect of law, the thing that was purchased
was without existence, and, so, could not Bus
tain a valid contract; and, though it is admit
ted that in cases free from fraud or other
imposition, -a very slight consideration, and,
therefore, a mere transfer of tho possession of
the subject, would be sufficient to sustain a pro
mise in consistence with general law upon the
subject of contracts; yet, in this State, at least,
the rule of discount has been much extended.
Defendants have been at liberty to plead a de
ficiency in tho quantity, of defect in tho titlo or
quality of land, or unsoundncsa or defects, or in
sufficiency of estate in personal property. And
it is contended that, undor tho principles of
those decisions, the want of tho element of pro
perty in the negro, which was tho consid?ra
tion of purchaso, would bo a legitimate subject
The objection, however, t? the validity of o*V
ligations in?urirod in tho purchaBe of ?laves, is
not confined to that olaaa of cases whioh has
occurred since the Emancipation Proclamation
of the President. Many uucb obligations were
incurred before the war, which arc still exist
ing; for many of these there was the security
of a mortgage on the property; that property
ha? since been emancipated by the Stale; and
it is contended I hut, iib-there is no legal validity
in the action of the General Government upon
this subject, our negroes were still slaves until
emancipated by the Stale; thal that State,
through its judicial officers, must exact from
debtor.--, ii it be exacted, the value of that pro
perty which itself bus withdrawn from them;
und ii ia contended I hal no State can hive the .
moral and eonstitutiiiir.il right io int'i.i upon
debtors, in no way untenable it? punishment, ?<?
gratuitous an injury us will consist in compell
ing them to pay Ibis elliss of debts while it
withdraws from them the ability to do J<>
With respect lo thal class of cases in which
u mortgage <>f the slaves have been ?niven to
secure the ?lebt, lhere is also a I uri her defence,
which is new, certainly, and ingenious, ami in
which great confidence is felt. It is contended !
that alter condition is broken in :i mortgage oT
personal property, (be legal estate is in the
mortgagee; thal he bus the right lo its exclu
sive possession, except, where it is stipulated to
the contrary; that he may bring tro err to re
cover it, even from the mortgagor, or trespass
for any injury inflicted on it; that, so vested
with the ownership ol' this property, from bim
it is taken by the State; that he alone is the
loser, and that, so vested and so charged with
this security, he cannot, when it is exhausted,
proceed also for his debt. To this position,
however, the answer, HO far considered insup
erable, is, that the security is but collateral
to the obligation; that the destruction of its
value by emancipation is in no way different
from ils destruction by any other means; and
that lie who loses his security by death, or de
preciation of ils value, cannot be held to have
lost to that extent his claim upon his debtor.
Such, at least, have been the decisions so fur
upon this subject; but what will be the course
upon the field of uncertainties on which we
enter, is not to be determined in advance. The
interests involved are sufficient to render it a
nibject of anxious concern to many of our peo
ple; the debtor, whose property has been
taken, if forced to pay, will generally be ren
dered bankrupt; the property so purchased
has, lo a great extent, been of minors, widows
and persons not sut juris, who will have no means
of support without; and so, while this question
is of vaet interest, it is not apparent to which
pide the public sympathies will turn.
W?IO ARE THE WORKING MEN?
Vic answer, all honest men who have no
capital, or at least none sufficient to support
them in idlcnt "3. Every man who is dependent
upon exerting his muscle or his brains for his
ilaily bread '? ? \?Arl-?n(j mun, or olno bo ?s a
rogue. Every man wdio hires out his body or
his mind, or both, to the capitalist for so much
per day, or for a certain weekly, monthly, or
yearly stipend, is a working man. The hod
carriers, the draymen, the ditchers, and the
mechanics, are not the only working men,
however much they or other people may be
inclined to think so. Clerks of all kinds, law
yers, doctors, preachers, and editors, so long
as they have nothing to depend on beyond
their own personal exertions for a livelihood,
arc just as truly working men in every sense
of the word, as the daily laborer who carns hie
food by the sweat of his brow. The clerk who
stands behind a counter all day long, with his
face always clean and his hair always smooth,
and whose bands arc never soiled save by the
dust from calico or muslin, is none the less a
working man because his work is not dirty.
The minister who preaches himself hoarse,
visits all day, and studies late into the night,
works hard for his living, and often for less
than could be made by an industrious ditcher.
A poor lawyer works hard, a poor doctor works
harder, and poor editors work harder than any
other set of men in the world. The working
men, so-called, have held conventions recently
in various parts of the country, and have at
tempted an organization for mutual protection
and t'.:e promotion of the interests of the said
working uiCU, so-called. So narrow-minded a
plan must fail, and fail utterly, for it contends
against too great odds; but let there be a com
bination of nil the working men of the country
the working men of brains as well as the
working men of muscle-let the clerks, lawyers,
doctors, mechanics, day-laborers and editors,
all unite in the struggle against the oppressions
of capital, and a party would be formed whose
influence combined capital could neither bribe
Tun New Orleans Picayune says: "That ven
erable and reliable institution of the State and
City, the State Bank of Louisiana, which suc
cumbed, for a while, to the inexorable demands
of militury necessity, has again opened the
portals of its solid banking house, typical of
its own intrinsic stability, and has resumed
business. It is now again discounting business
paper and dealing in foreign and domestic ex
change; and its old customers, and new comers
also, will find it, as of old, an exceedingly safe
and liberal institution with which to deal. Wc
presume the merchants of the Second District
will find it pccnliarly convenient to them, as
well as pleasant to deal with an old friend.
BRO WNLO W'S A?E8SA GE.
The Atlanta Intelligencer makes the following
sensible remarks in regard to the message o?
the Governor of Tennessee, which wc adopt as
our own :
?'Our Tcnncssco exchanges come to us filled
with the annual message of the Governor of thal
Slate. We have not space for even a synopsis
of it, however much amusement our numerous
Tennessee friends in this city would derive from
its perusal. The document is characteristic ol
the man who wrote it, and to say that is lo pro
nounce its condemnation. He urges the enact
ment of a law to make the negroes voters, at the
Bamo time what he knows that three-fourths ol
the white men in the StAle are disfranchised.
I Ho pretende to bclievo that there is a scheme on
foo* to reorganise Ihe State Government, and
as a precautionary measure ho urges the or
ganization of some regiments of loyalist!?, as
minute men, to be at his orders. By loyal men
he, of course, means negroes, and if he can
induce the Legislature to .uithorize any *?ucli
enormity, he will have, lie thinks, a power in
his hands with which he can intimidate all who
have the courage lo .ippu.se his notorious
?cheme?. The Legislature is mean and un
principled enough le second his recommenda
tions, and we 111113-. therefore, reasonably look
for ihe early organisation of ihis force. Bul
wi* think thai we '?now the people of Tennessee
well enough to predict willi certainty thal they
will no1 submit to he put antler the espionage
or control of either Known tow or his hinch
janissaries-, and If the suggestion of <bc* infa
mous Governor is adopted lhere will be such
trouble a^- Tennessee has never seen beton*.
'.The suggestion of the messago thal one
fourth 01* Hie b?nele convict? in tho pmitcnti-iry
were convicted on aeeount i>f their color, in not
only an imputation upon the courts which sent
them i hen-, which "liould OonsigU DsOWNLOW
tu 0 cell in the penitentiary himself, hut it
amounis to A declaration that he intends to
pardoo the.se convicts because they ure black.
"The idea that anything can be done to en
eonragg immigration lo a State with such a
Governor and sueh *i Government as Tennessee
now groans under, is; an absurdity upon its
very face, which must have caupcd BROWNLOW
himself lo laugh while he was penning thal
