. A recent demonstration at the North
lias sent a thrill of horror through the
heart of the nation. The "free nig?
gers" of the great State of New York
have solemnly declared "that tho re?
construction policy of the President
does not meet their approval, and
that they have no confidence in An?
drew Johnson. " Alas! alas!
The President is in ah. agony of
grief, and silffers'almost as acutely as
Governor Pierpont is supposed to
have done when a portion of the
late negro Convention aLAlexandria
agreed with the State Journal in de?
claring that they were not his friends.
It is feared that this terrible blow, if
it does not drive the President and
his Cabinet to some desperate act of
self-destruction, will at least .force
them to resign-but paralyzed as the
nation now is by this terrible calami?
ty,* t is impossible .tp say what will
This fearful misfortune fell upon
the Administration and the South on
thc22d of the present month-truly
a very "black day" in our national
history. The mortal blow to the
policy of President Johnson was
struck between the hours of ll a. m.
and 3 p. m., on Friday last, at
"Hanft's Myrtle Avenue Park," in
the city of New York.
The day was a very sultry one, and
therefore well suited for a strong not
to say "overpowering COLOBED Jum
LBE," as the Herald terms it. Fierce,
fragrant, firm and ferocious, "one
thousand colored persons of both
sexes" assembled on tho memorable
day aforesaid to excommunicate the
President of the United States. The
procession was most appropriately
formed with a t^squad of police, and
a drum corps in front," and "Dr.
Conover and Union League No. 2 in
th? rear." Their order of battle was
precisely like that of Napoleon's, the
"savana and jackasses" having been
"senf to tho rear. " About 2 o'clock
p. m., the united forces of Sambo and
Dinah made a fierce assault upon
President Johnson. The attack was
commenced by a picket line of drums
and gongs, and the sarans and their
companions in the rear raised a fear?
ful clamor. One thousand Sambos
and Dinahs then assailed President
Johnson with great ardor, [as we
make our "a's" and "o's" precisely
alike, we hope "ardor" will not be
spelt "od<ft" by the compositor, as
the mistake would bc both natural
and suggestive.] When it is recol?
lected that day was a hot one,"we can
well imagine the f?arful nature of
that "charge of the one thousand."
Their commander-in-chief, a person
named Broom, swept tlie President
f?re and aft like a broadside of grape.
Amid loud and fervent ecstatic excla?
mations of "Glory!" "Bress de Lord!"
"Amen!" the aforesaid Broom de
nojtoced the President as a "traitor"
ano a coward. He also called him a
dog "who barked bravely," but who
did not bite the legs y f the secession?
ists half as much as he, "Bro^m,"
wanted him to do.
The aforesaid "Broom," [having
doubtless upon many occasions star?
tled impecunious passengers who were
snugly stowed away in the shady
places of a Hudson river steamer, by
loudly ringing a bell and asking them
to, "step up to the Captin's offis and
settle, "J declared that General But?
ler, -or somo one else, was ' 'ringing a
bell in Massachusetts which would
toll the death knell of eveiy traitor
in the White House:" Having ex?
terminated President Johnson, tho
"colored jubilee" wound up with ' 're?
freshments" and "a dance." < Phew !

TRAGIC AFFITR-FATHER* AT*TD SOT?
SnOT,-On Saturday last, a dreadful
u-pparcniij nvu-i^.-^... ..^auix,
?with intent to kill, was made upon Dr.
Theodore.Dehon and his son, Theo?
dore Dehon, Jr., by negroes, while
the former were* returning from their
plantation at Ashepoo to Walterboro.
We have hot received "full particulars
of the assault, but learn that the as?
sailants wore the former slaves of Dr.
Dehon They were all armed, and
fired several shots. The son was dan?
gerously, and, it is feared, mortally
wounded. Dr. Dehon received four
shots, and, though severely wounded,
is considered out of danger. Six of
the negroes, including the driver of
the plantation and his sou, haye been
arrested. The cause of the attack
was unknown. . Dr. Dehon is the son
. of the late Bishop Dehon.

A COLORED MAN* EXCLUDED FROM A
STREET CAR.-Yesterday afternoon, as
a car on the Belt Railroad (North
Rivei") was passing along Battery
Place, a colored man attempted to
get on tho back platform, but was
chiven off by the conductor. The
colored mau then approached the
front platform of the car, but ap?
peared to change his mind, and did
not attempt to get on. He then
walked over to the sidowalk. Thc
conductor, passing through the car,
"said to tho driver: "Did you drive
that - off?" The driver replied:
"No; he did not attempt to get on, or
I would;" and so the affair ended.
? MHETIXG OF NEGROES rs GLOUCES
? TER.-A meeting of negroes was held
at Gloucester Court House, Virginia.
a few days since. The prevailing Idea
j with those in attendance was that they
were to have lands given them. A
letter to the Fredericksburg Era,
"The agent of the Freedmen's Bu?
reau also made a speech to them, say
: ing that he wished to disabuse their
j minds of the impression .that they
j were to own lands except by purchase,
j I hear that the negroes afterwards
I called him a d-d 'seccsh,' and said
they intended to report him." .
Reliable information from East
Tennessee proves that the?, young
man Bal*>r, who ffaa hung by the
mob of citizens and soldiers, was first
assailed by Hall, whom he killed.
The mob was the logical consequence
of tho evil teachings of Gov. Brown?
low. A spirit Of lawlessness and
cruelty prevails in that section, and
Gen. Stoneman declares that he can?
not suppress it so long as it is encou
' raged by the Executive of the State.
The negro soldiers have been "killing
white persons, and have become so
insolent in their bearing that even
Gov. Brownlow calls for their removal.
Bishop Whitehouse, of the Episco?
pal Diocese of Illinois, some months
since, prohibited the Rev. J. W.
Cracroft from officiating at Grace
Church, Galesburg, for the technical
irregularity of not havrng presented
his dismissory papers ?rom the Dio?
cese of Ohio, and for political preach?
ing. His congregation refused to give
him up, and the Convention now in
session at Chicago voted to expel
theru from the Diocese. Ik is said
this will be the subject of an appeal to
the General Convention of the Epis
Chnrch, which is soon-to meet at Phi?
The Cincinnati Gazelle learns, on
the most reliable authority, that the
reports circulated by 'the Eastern
pr?Ms relative to the speedy trial of
J-ferson Davis and Chief Justice
Chase's connection with it, are un?
founded. It says the Chief Justice
has very properly declined all confer?
ence on the subjfect, and it is not at
all likely that he will hold any court
in Virginia or North Carolina until
after Congress shall have had an op?
portunity of legislating in regard to
the circuits in the rebel States.
A. woman in Newton, N. J., was
lately saved from a violent death at

FELLOW-CITIZENS: After much hesitation
I have consented to be put in nominatioi
for yonr Representative in t)ie Congress o
the United States. I publish thin card, bc
cause the District is no large and the timi
before the election so ?hort that I coub
not, if I desired, canvas?! tho District. UT
canvass were possible, however, I do no
think it becoming or desirable In uv
judgment, this is no time for a scramble fo
office. It seems tome that no one proper
ly impressed with thc solemnity of th?
crisis, and tho delicacy and importance o
thc duties to bo discharged, could seek th?
position merely for the gratification of per
sonal ambition. Far myself, I declare tha
I have no wish but to servo thu State
' In 1788, South Carolina, through a con
ventr?n of her people, became ono of th
United States. Ste remained a rncniber o
the Union until December, 1860, wdien
through another convention of her people
shcrepealcd tho Ordinance of 1788, seced
cd from the United States, and with cer
' tain other sister States eoterod into anothe
government; known as tlie Confedeq^
Government. We believed that wc had ft?
right to secede a.n?t thaifour security fe
quired it? exercis? in co-operation with on:
Southam Misters. Sbuth Carolina, ?H 1852
proclaimed by solemn ordinance thc righ
of secession. It iad long been the scttlet
opinion of the State that she was sovereigi
and entitled toaflthe rights of sovereignty
She asserted self-government in order U
secure her institutions and principles fron
great evils, "believed to be imminent. Se
cession was in th? nature of a proceeding
quia limet. It war conceived in the spirit o
self-preservation-not to injure others but
to save ourselves, lt cannot be necessary
to sav that lam cac of those who bclievi
that it was an honest effort for honorable
purposes. The United States Government
denied the right of secession and wa^et
war upon the Confederate States, whicl
stood upon the defensive. t\ terrible wai
of invasion and desolation followed, anc
finally the Confederate States were over?
whelmed by force of numbers and dissolved
At the end of the war the*State of Soutl
Carolina found the Confederacy broken up
her citizens who survived the terribk
ordeal exhausted and impoverished, hoi
institutions destroyed, and the whole coun?
try occupied by the military forces of the
United States." Under these .painful cir?
cumstances, the President ofTthc United
Stat?s invited tho States lately composing
?the Confederacy to re-organize their gov?
ernments and restore their connection with
the Constitutum and Government of thc
United States, upon certain coffilitioas, thc
principal of which was an acquicscn.ee in
the abolition of slavery, which had been
accomplished by the i?ilitary authorities.
Tho State..wisely in my iudgni?nt'respoud
ed favorably to thc invitation. It is true
that the mere issue of battle docs nut prove
right any more than did thc obi "wager of
battle;" but it does prove power which can?
not be disregarded. A Provisional Gover?
nor was appointed, who called another con?
vention of the people, which ha? lately 1
repealed the Ordinance of Secession, and
by an arr?ele in tho State Constitution,
recognized the abolition of slavery ?ind pro?
hibited its re-establishment. By repeal?
ing that of Secession, the Ordinance of
17ri>. through which South Carolina be?
came a member of the Union, vas'ipso
I facto.revived, and we are this day in the
Union precisely as Nye became in 1788 and
remained up to 18(H).
We arc now in a very anomalous position.
'Relying upou the good faith and patriotic
intentions of the President of tl* United
States, we have done all that was required
of us to restore our old relation.') to the
('(Institution and the Union; but still we
i have not been received into fellowship at
Washington. That important part of the
plan of reconstruction remains yet to be
accomplished. It is understood that a
party will oppose thc President's plan of
reorganizing the States alni giving to them
equalify of rights, and will insist upon still
farther despoiling and crushing thu States
of thc South as conquered provinces. This
"radical fanat ical party opposed our leaving
thc Union, and now they oppose our return?
ing to it. When we were in the Union, they
abused us on account of slaven-. They
waged war upon us because we fried to
separate from them, and now that we ptt>
j pose to return without slavery, they still
! object. In this emergency, the State needs
the assistance of all her trite men. Much
I remains to be done, and not the hast is to
j secure a prudent, faithful and patriotic
representation in Congress, to assist and
! forward the work of restoration which the
j State ha? commenced. I arrogad! not to
; myself fitness to form part of andi a rep
1 resentation, but friends have urged mo for
? ward, and if you are willing to try me, I
I will give my best efforts.
Ju some se spec ts, we are at thc beginning
! of our policy, as if we were a new Slate
j about to assume' new relations with out?
sider States; but wc must never allow our?
selves to forget that in other respects we
. are an old State-a State having autece
i dents-a name to maintain and a history lo
I preserve. Whatever may hetide un in the
uncertain future, the past, at least, is se?
cure. Sooth Carolina has never swerved
from the path of honor, as she conceived it.
We have a record of which none need be
I ashamed; and when any apostate son ?sf
I hers disclaims or disparages it, may she
! cast him out as unworthy of lier. The
j devotion of every true son of the State
adheres in adversity as well a? in pros?
perity-is loyal through evil as well as
through good report; and in the midst of
the greatest misfortunes, "utieketli closer
th..u a brother."
"Alter the delegations from tho Southern
States shall have been roceivid into ?on
gress, many delicate and impoi tant duties
j will devolve upon them, especially in refer?
ence to the freedmen of the South, and the
control which Congress, or a party in Con?
gress, may desir? still to exercise over
them. It may not be improper, in tliis
connection, to'say that, whilst I nave ap
prOTcd#the course of tho State in seeking
to restore her old relations with thc Govern?
ment of tho United States, it has buen upon
tho faith and expectation that the State, as
soon as reconstructed, is to have entire
control of the whole subject of her domes?
tic affairs. The State, and the State alone,
must bo left to decide to whom she will
give; the right of suffrage or other political
rights. A new code noir must be enacted
to protect and govfcrn thc population lately
made free-to prevent idleness, vagrancy,
pauperism anti crime. I am not prophet
enough to foresee whether wo can succeed,
but 1 solemnly believe it will be impossible
to live in the cuuntrv at all unless th' Stale
lias exclusive control of the whole subject.
I have hopo that this will bo"permitted, and
I think it is in accordance with our inte?
rests and true policy to sustain th? Presi?
dent aud the Democratic party in their
efforts to restore tho States to their posi?
tion of equality and to give them equal
rights in the Government.
With these views, if thc voter? of the
District think that I can serve thom or thc
State in this critical emergency, I will do
my best for them; but I have too high a
son.se of my own incompetency and of the
difficulties and responsibilities of the posi?
tion, to solicit it by a personal canvass.
