FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 7, 1869.
Calling Oat ?he Militia.
We printed on Monday last s circular
signed by a man hamed Isaac San?
ders, giving notice that a mass meeting
would be bald on May 2, to organ
lie the militia. Ibis circular was posted
np at Monck's Corner, on the Northeastern
Railroad, ?nd was followed by a second, in
which the day of meeting was changed to
The second circular goes far beyond the
first, as it gives not only the purpose for
which the meeting WM to be held, bu? also
tho object for which the militia is to he
formed. It is not said that it ii done in
obedience to ah order of Governor Scott,
and, except in Abbeville, no snob order,
direct er implied, is known to have been
issued. Sanders, however, may be pre?
sumed to have had some reason, good or
bad, for the faith that was in him, as he
declares that the militia is ?to regulate
"things generally." The peculiar virtue of
this announcement lies in the fact that it
may mean anything and everything. The
colored people are to take their choice at
the bidding of the militia showman, and
may, as they please, understand that the
new organisation is to take the plaoe of the
moribond Bureau, and pat in their posses?
sion the never-to-be-forgotten "forty acres
?and a mule;" or that they will be paid so
many dollars monthly for wearing a. uni?
form *nd carrying a rifle of the most im?
proved pattern, that work by them and
theirs will be needed never more. Some
of the leading militia organizers wert asked
what was the meaning of the phrase "to
"reg?late things generally," and the an?
swer ws?, "that when anything wai done
"tarong by anybody the eompany would take
"them np and examine the matter, and
"pvnith tuck as they thought deserved it."
According lo this, the militiamen expect to
have more power than ?B confided to the
legislative, judicial and executive depart?
ments of the State Government Ta? State
tution of the United States; bat the militia
company is not restricted in authority, and
may, when "anything ie don? wrong by
"anybody," arrest the offender, examine the
matter, and punish "snob aa they think de
"serve it." And doubtless, according to
the Ideas of Sanders and hie mates, any
nnfort&aie white man who objecta to the
formation of a militia company will be
thought to deserve it.
Strange to eaj, there still seemed to be
some trouble in bringing the colored peo?
ple to th? scratch. Even the prospect of
becoming members bf a plenary court, with
the privilege of shooting and being shot,
failed to excite the expected enthusiasm.
Sanders, therefore, threatened .the recu?
sants with the penitentiary. When remon?
strated with in tegafd to this and other
illegal acta which he had committed, San?
ders said-"I AK A RADICAL." This, in?
deed, is justification enough.
We do not suppose that any member of
the present State Government is particularly
squeamish, or cares very much whether the
negro militiamen do or do not threaten and
ab usc the white people. They do not reflect
that these proceedings are more dangerous to
the white Radioal than to the odored man,
because for the last there is some excuse,
while for the first there is none, if the
negroes form organisations to regulate
things generally -whether with or without
the authority of this bastard government,
lt matters not-the white people will bo
tempted to do the same. What is right fol
the one. s right for the other. What the
one doeb under tyrannical law of the
State, the other will do by authority of the
first law of. Nature-self-preservation. The
negroes, for the most part, have nothing to
lose and everything to gain. They are told
constantly that Governor Scott is all pow?
erful and all wise, and it will be difficult to
bold them in check, if they are once for?
mally enrolled, either ?to regulate things
?generally" or "for the preservation of the
"peace." It is for this reason that we so
strenuously object to th's whole business of
calling out the militia. There is no neces?
sity c 0 say again that the white people will
not serre with or near a negro soldiery or
be ruled by them. That declaration has
been re-echoed in every quarter of the
State, and need not be repeated here. The
ignorance of the negro, and the malice of
his advisers, are the elements of danger.
If he would take his gua and gay ooat and
content himself with practicing the "goose
"step" or "right shoulder shift," allowing
the white people and his own wiser breth?
ren to sow and reap as they pleased, it
would not be neeessary for as to say one
word. Bat this cannot be. The proceed?
ings at Monck's Corner show what the
militiamen expect to do, and it may be
summed up in a few words : First, to coerce
every colored man into tbe ranks. 8econd,
to do what they will with the lives and
estates of the white people. This is the
whole programme as laid down by one of
their number, and this it is which compels
os to set oar faces against this whole mili,
tia mockery, which may begin in harmless
placards, bat will not as harmlessly end.
Nor must it be forgotten that every man
knows whence the inspiration comes, and
where the first bolts may fall.
General Butler a nd the Alabama Claims.
In discussing the Alabama claims, it
must always be borne in mind that if Eng?
land was wrong in recognizing the South?
ern Confederacy, we have the same cause
for complaint against Franoe and Spain,
and that any of the threo could set off
against the claim of the United States the
action of the Federal government in ac?
knowledging the South as belligerent.
These views are sustained by so extreme a
Radical as O en er al Butler, who, in a reoent
conversation with a New York correspon?
"Tho thesis of Mr. Sumner's speech, as I
"understand it, is that England committed an
"almost unpardonable sin-at least one to be
"atoned for only by full payment of all dam
"ages, immediate or consequential-in her too
"early according to the insurgents belligerent
"rights; in allowing the escape of the Alabama,
"and in Belling arms and munitions of war
"to the South. Of course, the last legally re?
sulted from the first; for after belligerency is
"accorded by a nation there is no objection to
"the sale of arms by any neutral nation to the
"belligerent. We sold arms to Mexico? as
"against the French invasion; we supplied
"mulei to the French to transport their lu g
"gage trains from Vera Cruz to Mexico. So
"we bought arms of all nations in Europe. 80
"there is nothing in our neutrality laws against
"our selling arms either to Peru or Chili, and
"we have been selling them arms in their war
"Therefore the gravity of Mr. Sumner's ac
'-cusation depends upon the propriety of the
"recognition by England of the rights of bel?
ligerency is the rebels. But we must renie m
"ber that our complaint in that behalf is as
"grave and commanding against France and
"Spain as against England. 1 am inclined to
"think Mr. Sumner puts too much stress upon
"the haste of this recognition as to Urne, be
"cause on the 17th of July by formal declara
"tion of war we acknowledged the Confederacy
"as belligerent ; sud in s war which lasted four
"years, whether belligerency was acknowledged
"on the 17th of May or the 17th of July of the
"first year, certainly could not be a matter of |
'?so grave consequence, if it might be acknowl?
edged at all."
It being conceded that England had the
law on her side, what, then, is to b* done !
General Butler's theory is that she took
advantage of technical law to injure a
friendly power, being determined to destroy
the United States at all hazards, and that
this is just as muoh au injury that requires
reparation as though the acts had been done
without technical legal justification. But
how is the offender to be expected to con?
cede thal he had not the law on his side
when in point of fact he had ? England
may have been unfriendly to the N'o-t h, but
she was no less unfriendly to lib South.
lu refusing lo join the Emperor Napoleon
in recognizing the Southern Confederacy,
her statesmen committed a blunder of which
they already repent. This country, North
and South, is dissatisfied with England, and
England ls jealous of the American Union.
Neither the dissatisfaction of the one nor
the jealousy of the other, however, will fa?
cilitate the settlement of the Alabama
olaims. Butler himself is not in favor of |
going to war, though he would have us
await an opportunity when England is st
Negotiations are futile as long as the de?
mand is that Great Britain shall acknowl?
edge that she was wrong in recognizing the
South. The door of diplomaoy is dosed.
War would be the total destruction of the
commerce and trade of the country. What
have we, then, to do but to wait sud reopen
the question at a later day upon a basis
whioh shall give this oountry all to which
it is entitled, without attempting to impose
upon England oonditions whioh national
pride will not allow her for a moment to
