Viol?- ii Attack upon Stanton. ,
Gen. Frank P. Blair, in a speech rc- j
cently delivered, at Rolla, Mo., muk?s .
a violent attack upon Stanton and !
Holt in drawing a parallel between j
the conduct of those functionaries !
and that of Stephens immediately j
preceding the war. His remarks aro ?
severe and hitter, but nevertheless ;
Now, in the beginning, before tho j
war broke out, while orators like ,
Drake were exciting young mon to ?
take up arms, and wore "tiring the i
Southern heart" with anger against j
the North and tho Union, the Go- ]
vernment of tho United States, with
Mr. Buchanan at its hoad and Stanton
and Joe Holt in his Cabinet, allowed
thc rebellion to go on and allowed
the forts to be captured. When
Stanton went into the Cabinet of
Buchanan, ho declared he couldjnot
coerce the South. Gen. Cass, who
was previously a member of Bucha?
nan's Cabinet, ofFered a resolution
which, it was understood, and so
claimed by Mr. Cass' friends at the
time, declared that it was the duty of j
tho Administration to maintain the j
law and defend the public property
of Fort Sumter and other forts. Bu- I
cha?an declined to do it. and Guss
went out and Stanton went in. [A !
voice-"That'strue."] True as Holy j
Writ. He went in to uphold and 1
maintain tho policy of Mr. Buchanan I
against the right of the General Go- ;
vernment to coerce a State, and defend ,
its property and its citizens.
Well, now, my fellow-citizens, when
Mr. Stanton, who is at present a \
member of this Administration, and a ?
radical-lie is a radical that would
delight even the heart of Mr. Drake
[knight' r]-when he was in this
Cabinet, lu- was content to maintain
Buchanan's policy. Alexander Ste?
phens is an awful, notorious rebel,
but he had not been quite convinced
then, and lu; stood up in Iiis own :
State of Georgia, and ir. the conven?
tion ot' that State delivered a speech
in favor of the Union, such as has not '
been delivered before or since tho
war, for eloquence, point, and sound !
and substantial argument. But Stan
ton and Buchanan would not, help
Stephens against these men down in !
Georgia, who had been furnished with I
arms out of tho public arsenals by
ono of Buchanan's Cabinet to coerce ,
them, and the State went out of the
Union, and tho Union mon wore left '
to themselves. Thc United States
Government armed the rebels-be- '
cause you know very well they had
at that time seized almost every one
of the -arsenals in the Southern
States, und armed themselves with
guns that had been placed there, at
their disposal, by Floyd, of Mr. Bu- j
Now, just look at it. Our own Go?
vernment anning rebels to put down
the Union men in the South, and the
Union men in the State of Georgia,
led by this feeble man Stephens
feeble physically-a mere .skeleton, an
atom-stood there unarmed defend?
ing his Government, wher. Iiis Go?
vernment liad turned against him and
armed Iiis enemies to put him down.
Shall wc take Iiis head off, or take
Stanton's: Which would be just re?
tribution before tin throne of high
Heaven? That Stallion should be
permitted the honor, <>r that Stephens
should be incarcerated ia Foti War?
re;:, ami Lei Stanton turn the kevon
him? You eau Ulalie Stephens the
pris ?ncr; you "can make Stanton tin
jailor: bul iii the eye of ll -aven, and
before this nation, thc traitor was on
the outside of the door -[applause!
and thc true man was in. Ho did
what lie could. Stil! Iiis Government
abandoned him; he did not abandon
his Government. Well, I .should like
t<' see any court in the world convict
him of treason. How could he be
convicted of treason ? Don't you
know that the relation of a Govern?
ment to its people is reciprocated, and
while a citizen owes allegiance, thc
Government owes protection? If the
Government withdraws its protection
absolutely, and arms thc foe against
its citizens, what title have thevtb thc
allegiance of that citizen? Kb title
that would authorize them to punish
bim. There is no court, and no fair
minded jury, under the sun, that
could find him guilty. I have cited
this individual ease as a type of many.
TUE DISTRICT COTJBXS.-Noticing
the establisment of District Courts in
this State, to facilitate cases in which
colored persons arc interested, is
thus spoken of by the New York
Thurs: Thc idea ol" establishing such
a measure is a good ono, and wo can?
not doubt that, under this system, the
blacks will bc allowed to give their
testimony before thc courts of justice.
Thc necessity for such a measure
arises from the fact that thc present
laws of the State relating to negroes
are all based on the doctrines of
shivery, and still more from the pecu?
liar circumstances and antecedents ol
the great body of thc negroes. For
example, the laws made for thc
whites, in regard to thc marriage and
family relations, their duties and re?
sponsibilities, cannot at once in theil
entirety, bc applied to thc blacks, for
the reason that the marriage and
family relations of the latter have
heretofore been, and still are, in th(
greatest uncertainty and confusion
So with the laws relating to thei:
holding of property and many othe:
laws. We hope to see a code bearing
upon all these matters, of such justice
and humanity, established in Soutl
Carolina, ns to bc a model for all th'
other States of thc South.
Dr. Jordon, editor of the Indian
apolis Gazelle, who was one of th
most successful physicians in Chichi
nati, in 1849, in thc treatment of ci??

in reference to that terrible plague :

EXIT OF PAYMASTERS-STNGULAJR
ALTERNATIVE.-The Richmond cor?
respondent of the New York Herald
In the case of Colonel Amos Binney,
paymaster of the United States volun?
teers, against whom serious charges
were instituted some weeks since, has
been granted the alternative, by Pay?
master-General Brice, of restoring to
the Government the funds now al
leged to be unlawfully in his posses?
sion, and being honorably discharged
from the service, or to appear before
a court-martial and take the chances
of a trial and dishonorable dismissal.
It is understood that Colonel Binney
has not decided which course to pur?
sue, while the Paymaster-General in?
sists upon one or thc other. The
seventeen paymasters implicated with
him ure all out of the service.
