The Washington correspondent of
the New York World -writes, under
dato of the 17th:
It is the universal testimony of all
unprejudiced observers -intelligent,
and qualified by examination and ex
yjirieueo to speak upon tho subject
that the class of men in the whole
South most quick to comprehend,
and most anxious to perform, the
duties of citizens of tho United States,
aro tho late soldiery of tho Confeder?
acy. Mr. Truman, the correspond?
ent of the Times, is the last witness
upon this point ; and the opportuni?
ties he had of learning;, and the capa?
city he has of judging, must be appa?
rent to every ono who reads Iiis very
interesting letters. This is tho very
class of men which thc radicals pro?
pose to disfranchise, for a time at
least. If the object of what is face?
tiously termed the Union party,
Lucas a non I uceado, is tho temporary
preservation of political power, thc
action of the majority in Congress is
very wise; if not, it is very foolish.
Whenever a party is originally com?
posed, as was the Republican party,
one-eighth fanatics, one-eighth scoun?
drels, and six-eighths ignorants, thc
fanatics or the scoundrels always dic?
tate its policy, and make the fools
say and* unsay, turn somersaults, or
cat the dirt of the ring at the crack
of the whip.
Lincoln, who was the most cunning
mau in thc Union, and who had just
exactly that calibre of intellect which
is consistent with canning, appreci?
ated at its exact value so precisely thc
average ignorance of his fellow-citi?
zens, that he put forward the most
monstrous propositions without any
fear of their fallacies being detected.
lu his first inaugural, he told the
Union and the world that, if judges
wore to decide upon law, and if their
decisions were to form rules of human
action, then the people had put thc
power out of their own hands. If he
had put his idea in fewer words, and ,
..said the proper judicial tribunal is
tho ballot-box, tho absurdity would
have boen moro palpable ; but it could
never have been too palpable or too
gross for his party to swallow.
So, when he said if slavery is not
wrong nothing is wrong, anil"that he
had always thought so, he cither said
what he did not believe, or he show ed
that he was utterly incapable of dis?
tinguishing how it happens that such
words as right and wrong occur in
any language, or have any founda?
tion in human nature and the conduct
of human life.
The truth in relation to Mr. Lin?
coln is that ho was a man of very
strong natural parts, probably of a
very kind, genial nature, but who was
' ' only half educated. He had learned
to do everything but judge. His
great power consisted in knowing
ab? ut as mindi as men generally
know, and in feeling as men generally
feel. If tho statesmen who conducted
the colonial cause had boon as shal?
low in their learning, and as little re?
moved from the inevitable ignorance i
of the masscss upon tho great subject
of government, Greeley would have
been a loyal subject of Victoria,
writing about George Washington as
he writes about .lohn Mitchel.
How thoroughly educated the great
leaders ol' tho Colonies were; how
thoroughly familiar with Locke ami
Montesquieu, Machiavelli, and tho
great G rook and Latin recorders of
the lifo of the Greek unions, and
ol' the Roman republic, any ono sees
instantly who is at all familiar with
toe history <>f that glorious era.
In fact, Lincoln, like Greeley,; did
not kuow the history even of his own
country; for we would not do his
memory tho injustice t<> suppose that
when practically he asserted that tho
Union madothe Constitution, not the
Cotiatitiiti?ii the Union, lie. uttered
an untruth instead of a mistake.
Tho six-eight hs of which wo spoke,
thdignorants, were just the class Mr.
Liutohi represented, as Beecher and
Ganisou did tho fanatical one-eighth ;
and \Iiose lawyers who, well-educated
and knowing tho truth, lised tho
honest impulses of the honest masses
to get power and profit at any price,
.were tho scoundrel one-eighth.
The masses of men in tho free
States never meant to be dishonest;
never meant to take from a Southern
State a right, nor from a Southern
man a cent. They were told hy their I
leaders that a subject was within their
jurisdiction which was not within
their jurisdiction, and they decided
as it was proper for them to decide,
if tho subject had been within their
What those masses want now is the
Union they fought for. The men they
respect are the men they fought
against. Take away the antagonism of
party, and seven-tenths of the white
citizens of the Union care no more
about the rights of tho blacks than
Greeley cares for the horror which
the spirit of Beau Bmmmel, in
spiritual circle number seventy-se?
venth million, expresses to tho
spirit of an inquiring Bostoneso at
th* white coat of philosopher Squirm.
IrcSumner and Stevens want thc D??
mocratie; party restored to power,
they are taking tho most effectual
means to secure that object, lt is
bound to come in very shortly;
whether it will come in mild und
beneficent, with charity and compila?
tion, as always before, or impatient
to avenge and swift to strike, depends
upon the present majority.
Much has ?*ecently been said with
reference to the impoverished und
starving condition of the "freedmen"
of Washington. We fear that these
accounts of their misery are not ex?
aggerated, as tho National Intelli?
gencer states that these unhappy
creatures have fallen so low that they
have been willing to accept the hos?
pitalities of Forney, and that the
'.Dead Duck" recently "entertained
them at his mansion in Washington
in his usual style of luxuriance."
Nothing, wo fear, but the direst ex?
tremity of famine could have driven
the "freedmen" to such a deplorable
step. For their sake, we hope to bo
able to publish an angry denial ot' this
horrid rumor. The "Dead Duck" is,
of course, too much delighted with
the report that anybody, white or
colored, will deign to dine with him,
ki deny it himself.-Richmond Times.
