The President and I^reedmen.
The Richmond Times, says:
President Johnson in his recent
speeches, in placing himself fairly
and squarely before the emancipated
slaves, as a far more disinterested and
judicious friend of the black race than
those negrophilists who are simply
using the negro for political ends,
took a wise and timely step in the
The thin varnish of philanthropy
with which the radicals glossed their
true designs aud objects has already
cracked, and pealed oil' in ninny places.
As a former owner of slaves him?
self, President Johnson regards the
late masters of the freedmen as their
best friends. Ha explodes tho shal?
low pr?tentions of those agitators who
feel no moro real interest in the
negro than the famous demagogue,
WUkes, did in those huge London
mobs which ho used to accomplish
?Since the fall of the Confederacy we
cannot recall a singlo instance of a
late slaveholder having embezzled the
funds of a confiding "freedman.'*
They have not been parties to any of
those deportation and kidnapping
schemes about which Mr. Sumuer
had so much to say in the Senate tho
-??\\2x day, Tlicy-have, not collected
money for the purpose of getting
them imaginary homes, and then left
them iv. the lurch as a Northern ad?
venturer did tho other day in Rich?
mond. It has not been necessary to
lock up Southern lawyers to keep
them from fleecing the "freedmen,"
as Gen. Miles had to incarcerate and
Gen. Terry to reprimand a New York
lawyer a few weeks since. Wherever
colored troops and unprincipled
emissaries have not demomlize.l thc
blacks, their relations with their
former masters have been infinitely
better than any one could have anti?
We believe that at no distant day
the most obtuse, thick-headed cuffee,
who is now sweltering at the plow
tail, will discover thc truth of what
the President told tho Washington
negroes tho other day.
THE EFFECT <>K TUT. TARIFF ON
NAILS.-Thirteen of tho leading nail
manufacturers of Pittsburg, Wheel?
ing and Ironton met in Pittsburg, on
the 12th instant. It was discovered
that the present stock does not ex?
ceed 15,000 kegs, while at this time
last year the stock was 100,000. Who
pays for this? Tho people! Who
make enormous fortunes? The ma?
General E. P. Connor, who lately
commanded in Salt Lake City, in an
interview with Congressmen in Wash?
ington, stated that Brigham i'onng
had 10,000 men in Utah capable of
bearing arms, and was very desirous
of driving the United States soldiers
ont. It is now presumed that Con?
gress will augment the force there,
and change the laws so that soldiers
in that Territory may vote.
RAILROAD FROM CINCINNATI TO
CHATTANOOGA. -A meeting was held
in Cincinnati, on thc Illili instant, to
concert measnres for the construction
of a railroad from that city to Chatta?
nooga. Large subscriptions were
made, and it is thought the road will

Mr. Gordon Cumming, whose mar?
velous hunting adventures in South
Africa, some twenty years since, gave
him a world-wide reputation, expired
at his residence at Fort Augustus,
Scotland, a few weeks ago.
lt is the opinion of various promi?
nent Congressmen that the jue cut
session will be closed early in June.
Apart from the subject of reconstruc?
tion, all other business can be closed
in several weeks.
The destructive mule distemper,
prevalent in Mississippi, is increasing
to an alarming extent. The planters
are called up to take stops to arrest
tho disease, if possihlo.
Tho Richmond Wh?h of Tuesday, j
The South is this dav Hie only tran
quil section of the Uniou. There
aro neither wars nov rumors of wars j
here. Varty strife is unknown herc, j
"We are as calm as a May morniug, j
and as peaceful as though -we had
never known war. If tho Committee
of Fifteen would now turn their
attention to the Northern States, and
summon witnesses to testify ns to tho
state of feeling there, a very differ?
ent condition of things would be
illustrated. All of tho agitation, ex?
citement and disaffection that exist in
the country exist there! It is all
astir with passion, prejudice and dis?
content. It i ; this day as much ex?
cited as it was during the war.
Compare, for a moment, some of
the prominent men of the two sec?
tions; which is the most composed,
General Lee or Charles Sumner;
General Johnston or Thaddeus Ste?
vens; General Beauregard or Senator
Wade? These men are types of the
people of the two sections. No man
living can lay his hand upon Iiis
heart and say that the safety of thc
country is threatened by the South.
Radicalism is the source of our peril,
and that is all beyond the Potomac.
The wi 3 South is solidly in favor of
the res ?red Union; its only oppo?
nents aro at thc North. The wh?le
South admits that the attempt at se?
cession failed ; thc controlling party
at tho North and in Congress act
npon tln; assumption that it was n

assistance at Chicltauiauga, and as ?

Nashville, Tenu., in December, 1S6-1
Gcu. Fullerton was for many mouth
Gen. Howard's adjutant, and was a
. .nc time a principal agent of liv
iiree-Uueu-'s Buve.-.u. . Thecxpcrienc
of Gens. Fullerton and Steedman, v.
traced by our correspondent, is iden
ticid witli that of Gen. (?rant, an
shows conclusively that the repri
sentations of radical loaders an
papers, showing antagonism betwee
the races and outrages upon th
weaker one, are exaggerations of ii
dividual cases, and wholly inapplici
ble to thc people generally. Ot
correspondent was shongly impresso
with the idea that the antagonis:
between the races was bitter an
relentless, und has been astonished I
find its entire absence. Ho repr<
senta the reliance, respect anddepoi
dence of the days of slavery as st:
existiug, and pictures thc native Vi
gininus as the friends and tutors i
their former slaves.
