f FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 7, 1866.
THE SITUATION-THE FATE OF THE
The South may now make ready to accept
her fate. The painful and protracted contest
for the preservation of political liberty, we pre- j
sume, is over. It was, in fact, ended at the i
cessation of hostilities. She was then able of |
herself to do nothing more, and though it ap?
peared to be the purpose of the Government to j
intervene, J assert itself, and to protect her
from the most severities of subjugation, and
it seemed to have the power to do so, yet even j
that illusive hope has faded. The Radical
party of the North has come to Congress with
even more of power. It is more assured of its
strength and its resources. It has become in- j
Btructed in the office and the forms of dominion.
The President is without the constitutional |
power further to impede its action. His veto
fails of its office longer to neutralize the acts
of Congress ; he has failed to indicate, and it
is to be presumed has failed to perceive, the
method or the means to do so ; and the South,
therefore, stripped and powerless, is but in a j
condition to receive what, more of impositions
that party, now completely masters of the
Government, may see proper to inflict.
The prospect is unpleasant. It is sad -to |
realize, and sadder to be obliged to confess that |
our political fortunes ar?.; so hopeless. Nor is
there grounds to assume that this party will be |
sparing or considerate in the exhibition of its
power. There are persons with it, and of it,
perhaps, who would be glad to be so. The'
men of the North and ofthat party, perhaps, are j
not individually blacker-hearted than are per
I sons elsewhere, nor are they without the U
j average of intelligence; and it is to bc presumed ? I
that, if it were possible, they would spare us un- 1
necessary suffering ; for they are conscious of
no wrong we have ever done them, and they I
can scarcely fail to perceive that threaten- j
ing spectre of a despotism, even to themselves,
still lurking in the shadow of their sectional do?
minion. Many express reluctance to the further
injury they feel themselves impelled to com?
mit; and the conductors of leading Radical
journals and some public men have staked
their political fortunes in the effort to moderate
exactions. But in these facts there is little to
assure us. An organization like that of which
we are to be the victims, is not susceptible of I
intellectual discretion. The party that started
the movement against CHARLES the First in Eng
'lana naa lrxtie- ti?_^g^* _*vp ?.H? h?nvn;uf-ito
consummation. Yet, starting from those hor-j
rors as they rose in vtew, they had no option j
I but to go on, orbe crushed by the pressure from
behind them. So also in France, the Giron?
dists were the miserable victims of their own
revolutionary impulse. Already at the North
those who falter are forsaken, those who doubt
are damned; and, as it is true of every movement
upon the conservatisms of a State, so is it true
here, that from its centre there continues to ex?
foliate a redder and intenser spirit of malignity
and ruin, and vain were the hope, therefore,
that it can have moderation or method in its
I madness, or can stop until its utmost forces are
, exhausted in the consummation of its course.
Assuming that the Radical party is, through
Congress, master of the situation, it becomes
important to consider what will be the conse?
quences. To us its attention will of course be
directed. At present it seems even more con-1
cerned about the Government. That Gov?
ernment has ventured to. assert itself, and
to interpose for our protection. For that
act of temerity it is made to answer; and at |
present the object is to strip that Government j
of power; and in inflicting indignities upon us,
the present object seems to be as much to mor?
tify the Government by an exhibition of its
impotence, as to visit us with any especial rigor |
of infliction. But achieving whatever of
triumph or capital there may be in suppressing
the Government, it will be next in order to
operate upon the South. What precisely shall
be done to us is not even yet apparent. We ;
will be stripped of liberty of course, but that is
a loss which we wUl only share in common with 1
every other section of the country ;-for a gov?
ernment despotic to one section must be despotic ]
as to all, and imposed upon us, will necessarily
extend to other States. Impartial suffrage,
which means the equal participation of the !
negro in the elective franchise, will doubtless
be required. At a caucus held at Washington j
on the evening of the second instant, and con?
tinued by adjournment, that has been resolved
on. . It was resolved, also, that it should be
taken without amnesty ; that the power of the
President to pardon should bc taken away;
from him ; that the Congressional Amendment,
even, should bc no basis for reconstruction, and
generally it has been agreed upon, though it
was not formally announced, that Congress shall
be the Government, and, like the National As?
sembly of France at its removal from Versailles
to Paris, shall be supreme not only over the I
laws but the constitution of the country.
It would seem, therefore, that the South must j
accept the condition of a province, and
for ourselves we have but to say, let that
condition come. We cannot desire it-but j
more than that, under present circum?
stances, would be illusive. The Radical
party, vigilant and jealous of its power !
in Congress, would admit us to nothing more
than the forms of a restoration, and it were as I
well to accept, at once, the conditions of a sub?
jugated province, as by visionary forms of a re- !
presentation to exhibit a concurrence in the 1
measures to oar degradation. In this condi?
tion, also, it will the less matter that negroes
shall have suffrage. That Government, from
considerations of interest, if from no higher
motive, will preserve the peace and order of
, the South ; and if, with these secure, the negro ]
I shall be admitted to equal privileges of elec
tion from which all are equally excluded, it
will bc of little practical importance.
What in the way of confiscation and attain?
ders may bo done, it is not yet easy to deter?
mine. Thc pardons of the President will be
disregarded if there were motive to do so; but
there is not. Even popular feeling at the North
has ceased to demand its victims. The South
is so far away, and has so little of an offensive
attittide, that there is more of feeling, perhaps,
against those opposed to them at home. We
think it probable, therefore, that the question
merely will be in what way the South can be
best used to advantage; and as it will be more
profitable to .remit her to a condition of
industry and order; as more can be made
from her products than her property, and as
the heads of inoffensive men will be of no pe?
cuniary value, nor, in the present state of feel?
ing, will even purchase political capital, it is
quite probable that, ttja South will be left in a
[material condition in many respects as favora?
ble .ia that, sb^p is in at present. In factf it is
noTlmprobabJnJJia.t hej^jaaterial fo?tp.n.ggmay
be brightened. Men have feared the triumph of
the"""xTepublican party, and in that triumph they
have feared disorders and outrage. From |
such apprehension capital is kept., away, and
our own people have shrunk from enterprises
and investments: but when it shall appear
that we survive the shock-that, accepting sub?
jugation, wc are in no worse condition than
when fevered, as for the last two years, by ap?
prehensions of its coming-it is quite probable
that enterprise and capital will cornie in, and the
cultivation.of the South be as extensive and ef?
ficient as it ever yet has been. .;"';?
That our State Governments w?i be permit?
ted to~ continue, *is no? cerlain, though quite
probable. There will be a necessityrfor the par?
ty in power to make provision for. adherents. It is
?probable, therefore, that they willbe sentto pro?
consular and pretorian positions over the South,
and thus the State Governments must, to an ex?
tent, be limited in their powers and operations;
but as agencies for mr-nifT"1 ljfe*agft order,
?ne functions of which cannot be altogether ab?
sorbed by the central power, thjyVwIU bejtoo
convenient toTbe dispensed.wit&^^&it may be
expected, therefore, that the State'swill be re

-direction that unity of executive authority and
action necessary to its office, and how it may

appears in that paper of Moiulay lastra letter
from Washington, containing so ingenious and
intentional a misrepresentation of the painful
circumstances that have rendered conspicuous
the names at the head of this article, that it de?
serves at least an emphatic denial and a quiet
The writer gives a statement of the evidence
elicited at the trial of the Anderson prisoners,
which is plausible but inaccurate. Ht- omits
the important circumstance that all the evidence
of the prosecution was 'purely circumstantial,
and thus leaves it to appear that the prisoners
were guilty without a shadow of a doubt,
whereas the public of this State, who were
perfectly familiar with the whole history of the
trial, were unanimously agreed that they were
unjustly convicted. In mentioning the part
which the President took, the correspondent is
anxious to make it appear that they were re?
lieved by his authority, whereas they were re?
leased by a judge on a writ of habeas corpus.
The whole letter in the Tribune is, in short, a
misrepresentation from beginning to end,
manufactured expressly for j party (purposes to
injure th? Presid?nt, without the slightest re?
gard for truth, and is onl^ one of the many
sensational political epistles that daily dis?
grace the columns of thai paper. There is,
moreover, a part of the secret history of this
trial, which has not yet been given to the pub?
lic, save in the inuendosi of the counsel for
the defence, but which wejare able to publish
on the best authority, and which we would
give to the world, if iti were not for the
pressure of military authority; and until this
is removed, ar. .'1 it is no Ronger dangerous to
speak the truth, no just estimate can be formed
of the merits of the case. (
The idea attempted to be inculcated that they
escaped punishment by means of their wealth
is simply ridiculous, all the prisoners being
men of only moderate means, most of - which
was exhausted in the expenses of the trial.
Since writing the above,1 we.learn by tele?
graph that a Select Committee of Congress has
been charged with the investigation of the cir?
cumstances in this Anderson murder, and that
the Committee will leave Washington next week
for the scene of their labors.
WE HOPE we know how to appreciate, with
true modesty, the very delicate compliment
paid us in yesterday morning's Courier. THE
NEWS, on Wednesday morning, published a full
account of ' the Planters' Meeting, held in
Christ Church Parish, on Monday last. The
same number of THE NEWS also gave a full re-\i
port of the proceedings of the Charleston]
Board of Trade, at their meeting on Tuesday
night. The Courier of Wednesday made no
mention of either of these meetings, but has
made full amends, in giving them the place of
honor in yesterday's paper, the usual learned
j and instructive editorials being made to give
way for matters of such palpable local interest.
