The Dead Body of Slavery.
There ore some simple-minded peo?
ple, and sonic demagogues, und per?
haps some very honest people, in
Kentucky, who are disposed to look
with suspicion upon the man or . the
paper advocating the policy of re?
moving what may be called the dead
body of slavery, and giving it a de?
cent burial. It is a little singular,
too, that such opinions should be as?
certained when it is seen that the peo?
ple of the Southern States, who hud
a much greater interest in thc insti?
tution than we had, are now, as they
have for some time been, engaged in
removing all traces of slavery. They
can see no good result to come from
clinging to the debris of the defunct
institution, and are removing it with
As an evidence of the spirit which
actuated them, we quote from the
Memphis Avalanche, always one of
the most extreme and uncompro?
mising of all pro-slavery journals, the
editor of which wore a sword and
rode by Bedford Forrest's side during
the greater part of the war. He
fought to keep the life, if possible, in
the institution, but, now that it is
dead, he drops his sword, and with
his pen pushes the dead body from
his path, and proceeds to other duties.
"For Heaven's sake," says the
Avalancha, " let the South take mea?
sures to terminate the controversy,
and bury the corpse of slav ely out of
sight, with all its odious appendages.
Until this be done, the country will
have no peace, and thc Southern peo?
ple no security. We shall have the
negro again in Congress; a new rally
of the worshippers of the ebony idol;
a new cohesion of Northern fanati?
cism; a new combination against the
peace and interests of the South.
The only way to avoid a controversy,
which must in the end prove unpro?
fitable to us, is to give to the negro
the right* and privileges attaching to
his new condition; to thus put the
abolition of slavery beyond any line
of dispute; to leave nothing for thc
Northern radicals to use as political
capital, or texts of declamation; and
then calmly appeal to the conserva?
tive portion of the country for the
restoration of our lights, and claim
the verdict of the country against the
Black Republican party as an or?
ganization without principles, assert?
ing no new facts, and constructed only
for clamor. "When the Black Repub?
lican -party shall be put in this posi?
tion, its power for evil is gone, and
the days ofsui, old and hideous fa?
naticism, whicnSbas clearly outlived
its objects, are filially ntTH?ei??er**'-"
Ex-Generals HeathyPillow, Hood,
