through, and, being fastened to the thread,
was bronght opposite the keyhole by dexter?

-If we may believe tho New York World, a

thousand men. A great quantity of uniforms
has been purchased, and every necessary ar?
rangement made for the transportation of the
troops. Tho World st; tos that recruiting
offices will be opened this morning under the
name of " Cuban Emigration Bureaus." Emi?
grants will be received and their names taken
down, ?nd oaths will be administered to them
on promise of strict secrecy to obey thc princi?
pe "emigrants." Rumors are afloat that it is
the intention of tho Liberators to offer ths
command of thc expedition to General "Baldv"
Smith, but this needs confirmation. General
Dick Taylor is also alluded to, and, meanwhile,
there is said to be intense excitement through?
out the city in regard t. the proposed invasion.
-As a matter of political record, wo wUl
etate that Gerritt Smith nM written a letter of
advice to General Grant. He informs the new
President that the chief object of his adminis?
tration will be to enforce the doctrine of uni?
versa] suffrage, and to that end the "loyal"
people are ready to hold np his hands. He
commends the General's "charitable judg?
ment and generous treatment to thc South,"
but is very bitter in his denunciation of the
Democracy for claiming that, "the nation
should again put under the feet of the wicked
white men, who had taken up arms to destroy
her, the forgiving and magnanimous black
men, who had taken up arms to Bave her!"
The blame of Ihe reullion bears upon North
and South alike, says Mr. Smith, and he is
happy to know that General Grant also accepts
this belief. He closes his letter with saying ;
"I like to believe that the motto of your ad?
ministration will be: 'A man's a man.' The
spirit of such a motto pervading our land will
make it a land of peace. The white man and
the black man will bc at peace with each other
-the North and tho South; and this peace
because founded in unchangeable nature in?
stead of shifting human expediency, in the
Divine constitution of things instead of hnman
and conventional arrangements-will be a
thorough and permanent peace. I scarcely
need add that the identifying of your adminis?
tration with the sublimo and Christian doc?
trine of the oneness of thc children of men
with the sublime and Christian doctrin 2 that
every man is every other man's brother, and
God the common and equal father of them all
-will not only make ours the h ippiest nation
on earth, but will make it to all other nations a
surpassingly grand and influential example of
casting down the barriers of race and setting
up in their stead the law of impartial juBtice
and the reign of fraternal love."
TUESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 17, 1868.
The proposed constitutional amendment
which is to confer the elective franchise
upon all male citizens of the United States,
of all races and colors, will at least give the
party press something about which to rea?
son and write.
Outside barbarians had supposed that the
fourteenth constitutional amendment cover?
ed the whole ground, and was a settlement
of the question of suffrage. This amend?
ment provides that each State shall regu?
late the suffrage for itself, subject only to
the condition that it should have no Con?
gressional representation for any class of
persons excluded from the suffrage. For
example, the total population of this State
is about 700,000-consisting of 400,000
blacks and 300,000 whites. If South Caro?
lina were entitled to seven members of the
United States House of Representatives ac?
cording to this total population, she would
lose four-sevenths of her representation, or
four representatives, if the colored people,
by the State laws, were not permitted to
This gave every State the power, as it
had the undoubted right, to determine the
qualifications of its voters; but it protected
the freedmen in providing that the repre?
sentation should be reduced in proportion
to the total number of persons excluded
from the elective franchise.
But the left wing of the Radical party is
not satisfied that the States should have any
reserved or discretionary power, and seem
determined to endeavor to crush out the
little life which the States still possess.
They may succeed, but they will do the
South no harm. We have already universal
f uffrage fastened upon us, and it will do us
no harm If colored men vote indiscriminate?
ly from the Pole to the Gulf.
One great object of the movement is, of j
course, to debar the Southern whites from
amending' the State constitutions so as to
take away from the negroes the voting
power which they now possess. The Radi?
cals know that the white people will control
the South in a few years, whatever the con?
dition of the suffrage question, and they de?
sire to take the whole matter out of the
hands of the States, i. e., out of the hands of j
the white race. But in no event can they
harm us to any great extent; for the white
people will soon have a political power,
under the regime of universal voting, as
complete as though not one colored man in
the South were allowed to cast a vole.
Blood will tell, and the political force given
the freedmen will *e, in the end, an ele?
ment to give the white Southerners greater
political influence than they ever had be?
fore secession, war, and all the vexations
of emancipation and reconstruction.
In an address recently delivered in Vir?
ginia, ex-Governor Vance, of North Caro?
lina, uttered some plain truths, which, how?
ever unpalatable they may bj for a time,
will gradually steal upon the minds of men
until they are accepted as thc bases of the
Southern agricultural system of the future.
Taking emancipation as a fixed fact, Gov?
ernor Vanoe observed that the new order
of things strikes a deadly blow at the sys?
tem of great farms which prevailed, and
still prevails, in the South. The tendency,
already visible, is to break np the vast do?
mains of the Southern planter into small
farms, which, with increasing population
and agricultural knowledge, will again be
divided and subdivided as the demand for
This "small farm'' system is the one really
practical method of restoring the South to
prosperity. There is a natural pride in
large estates, and a natural objection to
breaking up large possessions. But the
circumstances which wurranted great es?
tates, and which placed the wealth and
power of a community in a few hand*, are
wholly changed, and with the altered con?
dition of affairs a new system of property
owning is necessary. Instead of our prince?
ly plantations, lhere mu^t be a hundred
homesteads, and as the country is more
thickly settled and weilth is more evenly
distributed, the South may become richer
and more thrifty than ever before.
But while we Concur in what Mr. Vance
says in regard to the*^advantages of sma.l
farms, we are not disposed to admit that
the change will necessarily make negro
labor useless. If the negroes refuse or
neglect to work, their places must be filled
by the white man; but while they are wil?
ling to work for moderate wages they will
make, for our purpose, better farm han Jg
than can be obtained from Ireland, Eng?
land or Germany.
There is no diminution in the quantity of
land-in the South, but half, at least, of thc
productive population is gone. The negroes
have largely decreased in numbers, the
women and children have been withdrawn
from the fields, and many of the able-bodied
males have removed to the cities and towns.
This would naturally cause labor to be dear,
if the area of land to be cultivated remained
the sa?ie, BO that, if we would make labor
cheap and keep it cheap, we must reduce
the area to be worked below the quantity
which could be cultivated with the laboring
popnlation which is at our command. This
will lessen the demand for labor, and in
causing the negro to seek for employment
will give him a correct understanding of his
relation to his white employers, and his de?
pendence upon them.
As long as the white farmer is deter?
mined to cultivate a large area poorly, in?
stead of a small area thoroughly, he will
be dependent on the freedmen, and will be
obliged to pay high prices for poor work
But if ho adopts the small farm idea, and
cultivates one acre where he now cultivates
two or three, he will require less labor to
do the work well, will obtain that labor
at a low price, and, from amongst those
who offer themselves for hire, need take
only men who have proved themselves in?
dustrious and worthy of trust. It is use?
less to try to carry out in 18G8 the system
which was successful in 1858. The men
who will not bend must break. There is
neither patriotism nor common sense in
clinging to thc shadow when the substance
is destroyed, and the man who is ready to
adapt himself to the changes wrought by
emancipation in the agricultural theory and
practice of the country, proves himself
more intelligent and more truly devoted to
his State than he who would allow the whole
South to become a howling wilderness,
rather than admit the necessity or propri?
ety of moving out of that beaten track
which slavery had made as pleasant as it

Four thousand of the most eminent medical mt
tho Union promptly responded. Their opinion
