Tuesday Morning, February 13,1866.
We present to the reading public
to-day the first number of our week?
ly paper. We believe such a journal
called for by the wants of many who
desire to receive a paper from the
capital, but where mail facilities will
only permit them to receive it once a
week, or who, in the present sad and
depleted state of onr section aud
State, are unable to subscribe for a
daily journal. Ther? are, besides
those, many persons having friends
or relatives in other States of the
Union, who would desire to have
them enjoy weekly communication
with Columbia, and the Gleaner af?
fords an excellent medium for that
It is our intention to render the
Gleaner, as its sub-title indicates, "A
Home Companion." It will collect
and place in compact form all the
important .news of tho week; the
latest market reports; the principal
local events which might interest dis?
tant subscribers; and such matters as
we deem of interest to the farmer and
planter. Besides this, a portion of
its columns will be devoted to litera
tare-original and selected-tales,
essays and poetry-in short, no effort
will be spared to make it a welcome
weekly visitor, we hope, to many
hundreds of homes and firesides in
this State and elsewhere.
The newspaper has become a neces?
sity to every family circle. It is the
bearer of news from all parts of the
world, and contains more of that
commodity within its pages than if
the readers had a correspondent in
every city in the country or in every
capital in ?urope. But, besides this,
when properly conducted, it refines
the taste, and is an invaluable instru?
mentality in the education of the
younger members of the family.
Rarely, indeed, will you find ignorant
children where a good newspaper is
read daily or weekly. This consider?
ation alone should induce every head
of a family to subscribe for a paper.
To be such a messenger, such a
* news correspondent, and such a
teacher, will be the object of the
Gleaner-such we design to be its
mission. In size, in typography, in
the quality of its paper, and, as far
as our ability goes, in the character of
its contents, it will be a journal that
will compare favorably with most of
weekly papers in the country. In
imparting correct intelligence; in its
political tone; in the selection of its
literary matter, we feel well assured
that it will be a more valuable, useful
and acceptable journal to the class of
readers to whom it addresses itself,
than the larger portion of the so
called literary papers pubbshed in
other sections of the country.
Since the destruction of Columbia
and our railroads, a year ago, we
know that there are hundreds living
within the range of post offices not
on the main .lines of travel, who have
been deprived of the advantage a
newspaper always confers upon its
readers. To such the Gleaner will
be a welcome visitor. Since that dis?
astrous night in February, 1865, the
proprietor of the Phoenix and the
Gleaner has used every exertion, and
spared neither labor, nor expense,
nor shunned any sacrifice of time t>r
trouble, under the most discouraging
circumstances, in order to repair the
damage and supply the want which
that night inflicted and created, so
far as our people were concerned.
He has succeeded to a certain extent;
the PhonLr.-the only daily publish?
ed in the State outside of Charles?
ton-now compares favorably with
any other, and he feels justified,
in this new effort to supply the
wants of and accommodate so many
in other sections i -f the State, in so?
liciting for the Gleaner a large sub?
scription list, and the active co?
operation of all who read these lines
in promoting its success.
Tl>e President Speaks Again.
We publish a full report of the
reply of the President to Fred. Doug?
lass and his associates. It has the
ring of the true metal, and we hope
will have a beneficial effect. He has
delivered another speech worthy oi
the Chief Magistrate of the Union.
Upon both these speeches we wil;
take occasion to make some remarks.

DEAR PHONIX: From Richmond to Ac
quia Creek, there is much debi-is of the
recent terrible war. The remains of
tents, earth-works, scarred walls, rid?
dled housee, burnt bridges, Ac, all record
sad events of the past. At Fredericks
burg, there was fought a most terrific
battle, which, in addition to the usual de?
struction of human life, resulted in the
partial ruin of the town. On tho Potomac,
I saw much of the novel and tho beautiful.
The river bad been frozen from shore to
shore. This immense quantity or ice was
quite novel and interesting to your corres?
pondent. The scenery along this grand
old river is beautifully picturesque. We
were on board the steamer Koyport, which
is an excellent boat, fleet in her progress,
and furnishes her guests a most luscious
dinner on this trip.
While passing Mount Vernon, the boll
of tho steamer wa3 tolled, according to
the usual custom. Hero there is what was
once the homo of one of the greatest and
best of men, and it now contains the pre?
cious dust of him who was justly regarded as
the Father of his Country. The sight of
this sacred place stirred in my soul pecu?
liar feelings, and demanded the most per?
fect admiration for the noble hero and
true patriot, George Washington. He was
certainly a man of a great deal of charac?
ter. His virtues will live forever in the
memories of a grateful people.
The Baltimore Conference began ita ses?
sions, to-day, in this town It will be an
interesting and a harmonious occasion.
There are present many able and influen?
I am under many obligations to Mr. Bal.
Ruth, the Superintendent of the Richmond
and Fredericksburg Railroad, for his .gen?
tlemanly kindness. This road is in fine
order, and affords the cheapest, safest and

INTERVIEW OF A VIRGINIA DELEGA?
TION WITH THE PRESIDENT.-A com?

Johnson on the 10th, and presented
the resolutions of that body endors?

Johnson replied, thanking them for
their visit, and expressing his gratifi?
cation at their sentiments.
He declared his determination to
follow the principle he had pursued
throughout the war, that the Union
could not be dissolved. He respond?
ed cordially to the sentiments of the
resolution, and trusted that the time
would soon come when they could
meet under more favorable auspices
than at present. He stated that he
would not be forced to the position
that any State is now out of the

important one. At the conclusion of

of the committee were personally in?

Tile President to tile Negroes.
A few days ago, we published a
paragraph, stating that a deputation
of colored men waited on President
Johnson,' asking him to interfere in
their behalf. The following is a full
report of the President's reply:
?"In reply to some of your inqui?
ries -not to make a speech about
thia matter, for it is always best to
talk plainly and distinctly about such
questions-I will say, that if I have
not given evidence in my former
course that I am a friend of human?
ity, and to that portion of it which
constitutes the colored population, I
can give no evidence here. Every?
thing that I have had, both as re?
gards life and property, has been
perilled in this cause, and I feel and
think that I understand-not to be
egotistic-what should be the ferne
direction of this question, and what
course of policy would result in the
amelioration and ultimate elevation,
not only of the colored, but of the
?reat mass of the people of the
baited States. I say, that if I have
not given evidence that I am a friend
of humanity, and especially the friend
of the colored man, in my past con?
duct, there is nothing that I can do
more that would. I repeat, that all
that I possessed-life, liberty, and
property-have been put up m con?
nection with that question, when I
had every inducement held out to
take the other course; by adopting
which I would have accomplished,
perhaps, all that the most ambitious
could have desired.* If I know
myself, and the feelings of my own
heart, they have been for the colored
men. I have owned slaves and
bought slaves, but I never sold one.
I might say, however, that, practi?
cally, so far as my connection with
slaves has gone, I havo been their
slave instead of their being mine.
Some have even followed me here,
while others are occupying and enjoy?
ing my property with my consent.
For the colored race, my means, my
time, my all, have been perilled; and
now, at this late day, after giving
evidence that is tangible, that is prac?
tical, I am free to say to you that I
do not like to be arraigned by some
who can get np handsomely-rounded
periods and deal in rhetorical talk
about abstract ideas of liberty, who
never perilled life, liberty, or pro?
perty. This kind of theoretical, hol?
low, unpractical friendship amounts
Jo but very little. "While I say that I
am a friena to the colored man, I do
not want to adopt a policy that I
believe will end in a contest between
the races, which, if persisted in, will
result in the extermination of one or
the other. God forbid that I should
be engaged in such a work.
Now, it is best to talk practically
and in a common sense way. Yes, I
have said, and I repeat here, that if
the colored men in the United States
could find no other Moses, or any
Moses that would be more able and
efficient than myself, I would be his
Moses to lead him from bondage to
freedom; that I would pass him from
a land where he had lived in slavery
to a laud-if it were in our reach-of
freedom. Yes, I would be willing to
pass with lum throughout the Red
Sea and the Land of Promise to the
land of liberty. But I am not will?
ing, under either circumstance, to
adopt a policy which I believe will
only result in the sacrifice of Ids life
and tho shedding of his blood. I
think I know what I say. I feel what
I say, and I feel well assured that if
the policy urged by some be persisted
in, it will result in groat injury to the
white as well as to the colored-man.
There is a great deal of talk about the
sword in one hand accomplishing an
end, and the ballot accomplishing
another ut thc ballot-box. These
things all do very well, and sometimes
have forcible application. We talk
about justice. We talk about right.
We say that the white man has been
in the wrong in keeping the black
man in slavery as long as he has.
That is all trne. Again, we talk about
the Declaration of Independence and
equality before thc law. You under?
stand all that, and know how to ap?
preciate it. But now let us look each
other in the face; let us go to the
great mass of colored people through?
out the slave States; let us take the
condition in which they are at the
present time-and it is bad enough,
we all know-and suppose you could
say to every one, you shall vote to?
morrow, how would it ameborate
their condition at this time? Now, let
us get closer up to this subject and
talk about it. What relations have the
colored man and the white man occu?
pied in the South heretofore? I op?
posed slavery upon two grounds:
First, it was a great monopoly, en?
abling those who controlled and
owned it to constitute an aristocracy;
enabling the few to deride great
profits, and rule the many with an iron
rod, as it were. And that is one great
objection to it in a government-its
being a monopoly. I was opposed to
it, secondly, upon the abstract prin?
ciple of slavery. Hence, in getting
clear of a monopoly, we were getting
clear of slavery at the same time. So
you see there were two right ends
accomplished in the accomplishment
of the one.
Mr. Douglass-Mr. President, do
The President-I am not quite
through yet. Slavery has been abo?
lished; a great national guaranty has
been given-one that cannot bc re?
voked. * I was getting ut the relation
that subsisted between the white man
an J the colored man. A very small
portion of white men, compared with
the whole^ number of such, owned the
colored people of the South. I might
( instance the State of Tennessee in
: illus '.ration. There were twenty
I seven non-slaveholders to one slave
I holder, and yet the slave power con
I trolled that State. Let us talk about
this matter as it is. Although the
I colored man was in slavery there, and
I owned as property in the sense and
in the language of that locality and
of that community, yet in comparing
j his condition and his position there
with the non-slaveholder, he usually
! estimated his importance just in pro?
portion tn the number of slaves that
his roaster owned, with the non
slaveholder Have yon ever lived
upon a plantation?
Mr. Douglass-I have, your Excel?
The President-When you woidd
! look over and see a man who had a
large family struggling hard upon a
I poorer piece of land, you thought a
great deal less of him than you did
j of your master?
Mr. Douglass-Not L
j The President-Well, I know such
was the case with a large majority of
! you in those sections. Where such
is the case, we know there is an
I enmity; we kno?w there is a hate.
The poor white man, on the other
! hand, was opposed to the slave and
! his master, for the colored mau and
his master combined kept him in
slavery by deprivit g him of a fair
participation in the labor and pro?
ductions of the rici1 land of the
! country. Don't you kviow that when
a colored man is going to hunt a
master, as they call it, for the next
year, they will prefer livii g with a
man who owned slaves ra her than
with one who did not? I know the
fact, at all events.
Mr. Douglass-Because ley treat?
ed him better.
The President-They die not con?
sider it quite as respectable there to
hire to a man who did not own
negroes as to one who did.
Mr. Douglass-Because h s woi?d
not be treated as well.
The President-Then th.d is an?
other argument in favor of what I arc
going to say. It shows that the co?
lored man appreciated the slaveholdei
more highly than he did the mar
who did not own slaves; hence tht
enmity between the colored man ant
the non-slaveholders. The whit?
man was permitted to vote before tin
Government was derived from him
He is a part and parcel of the politi
cal machinery. Now, by rebellion
or revolution, and when you corni
back to the object of this war, yoi
find that the abolition of slavery wa
not one of the objects, Congress an<
the President himself declared that i
was waged on our part in order t<
suppress the rebellion. The abolition
of slavery has come as au incident tc
the suppression of the great rebel
lion. As an incident, and as an ac
cordant, we should give it the prope;
direction. Tho colored man wen
into this rebellion a slave; by tin
operation of the rebellion, he cain
out a freedman, equal to a freemai
in any other portiou of the country
There, then, is a great deal done fo:
him on this point. The non-slave
holder, who was forced into the re
hellion, and was as loyal as those wb
lived beyond the limit of the State
was carried into it, and his property
and, in a number of instances, th
lives, of such were sacrificed; and h
who has survived, has come out of i
with nothing gained, but a great dei
lost. Now, upon a principle of jus
tice, should they be placed in a COE
dition different from what they wer
before? On the one hand, one ha
lost a great deal, and, in a politic;
point of view, scarcely stands wher
he did before. Now we are talkin
about what we are going to argiu
We have got at the hate that existe
between the two races. The quer
comes up, whether these two race;
situated as they were before, withoi
preparation, without time for passio
and excitement to be appeased, an
without time for the slightest in
provement, whether the one shoul
be turned loose upon the other, an
be thrown together at the ballot-bc
with this enmity and hate existin
between them? The query comes uj
will we not then commence a war <
races? I think I understand th
thing. Especially is this the ca?
when you force it upon a peon
without their consent.

ears, departed, grumbling at the Pr
sident's inconsistency. They fortl
with wrote out and published in tl

New York Spring Trade.
We extract the following from the
New York World:
The Times seems to anticipate avery
good spring trade, aud vaticinates
in quite a jubilant strain upon the
money tha* is to be made by tho
metropohs in goods to be sold to thc
South and West during the coming
season. We hope the Times is correct
in its anticipation, but we do not feel
quite so hopeful. In making up their
minds touching the spring business,
merchants would do well to bear the
following facts in mind:
L Staple goods of all kinds must
hereafter be sold on a falling market.
All kinds of goods are too high in
price, and honest retailers who mean
to pay their debts will oidy purchase
enough for immediate consumption.
Those who are walling to pay high
prices and make large purchases will
be unable to meet their engagements.
2. The future of the financial policy
of the Government will be in favor of
a falling market. The certainty that
we must, some time or other, go back
to specie payments, that we are on the
road thither, will compel caution in
all quarters, and induco a dull state of
3. The farmers of the West are
well off, but they have not paid their
debts on the fall trade, hoping for
higher prices for farm produce. The
West is full of corn, which the pro?
ducers obstinately refuse to market at
present rates; and many of the leading
houses in Cincinnati, Chicago and
St. Louis would be sorely pinched
were New Yorkers to apply the screws.
Fortunately for them, our money
market is easy, and likely to continue
so for some time to come. Although
the West is bare of spring goods, there
will not be a large trade unless there
is a heavy concession on present
prices, especially in domestic goods.
4. Tho South is baro of goods, but
has no money, aud if New Yorkers
wish to sell, it must be on long credits.
No prudent house will sell largely tn
Southern dealers at present prices and
on longtime, with the future as doubt?
ful as it is now.
The past January has been ar
extremely dull month in all branches
of trade, and it is now known that
there are large stocks of fall goods stil
unsold at the West.
Merchants had better not be tot
sauguine. Let them prepare for J
moderate trade, and be sure and no
give long credits.
