Disfranchising tile "Whiles.
The National Intelligencer say? that
within tho last five years, we have set
free four millions of slaves, und given
them civil equality.
But what has been the cost? One
of the most gigantic civil wars ever
known, in which, at least, half a mil?
lion of lives were sacrificed. A na?
tional debt of over ?3,000,000,000,
lias been incurred, and, in conse?
quence, the country hasbeen loaded
with a burden of taxation under
which it reels and staggers.
Tho Intelligencer, very properly asks:
"Is it not time to pause to take breath,
to staunch tho wounds of the body
politic, to restore peace and harmo?
ny, and show some concern for our
material interests?" lt would seem so.
Yet there is a party iu this country
who refuse to stand still a moment;
who are keeping on to still further
and moro radical reforms-demand?
ing universal negro suffrage.
The Intelligencer cites the speech of
Mr. Boutwell, of Massachusetts, in
opposition" to the adjournment of
Congress, as throwing-? flood of light
on the purposes of tho radicals, lle
ferring to the then approaching assem?
blage of tho so-called Louisiana Con?
vention, he stated in substance that
that Convention would disfranchise
the rebels, and confer the elective
franchise ou the negroes. The Intel?
"What excitement, what agitation,
what hatred, what a brood of convul?
sions are prefigured in such a pro?
gramme as this; and if it is carried
out, as it certainly will be if this party
have the power, what a future is be?
fore us? A war of races, civil war,
tho normal condition of society, the
country treading in a path that leads
but to despair, to the prostration oi
the productive industry of the coun?
try, to tli6 impossibility of free insti?
tutions, to the protecting sword oi
the conqueror, and the gulf of na
But, as that journal remarks, it is
in vain you present this truthful pic
ture to the fanatics who are marching
on. They will answer you in some
such imperative form of rigid mora
logic as this: "All men are by na
" ture created free and equal, and
therefruro, universal anifrogo muot l>>
given to the negroes." The philoso
phy of this fanatical party drive:
them forward, and they could no
pause if they would.
Mr. Calhoun, as far back as 1S37
proclaimed a great truth when hi
"Emancipation itself would no
satisfy these fanatics; that gained
the next step would be to raise tin
negroes to a social and political equal
ity with the whites,, and that bein;
e-ffected, we should find the presen
condition of the two races reversed
They and their Northern master
would be the masters, and we tin
slaves; the condition of the whit
race in the British West India Is
lands, as bad as it is, would be happi
ness to ours; there the mother conn
try is interested in sustaining tin
supremacy of the European race."
If Mr. Calhoun had been a pro
phet, he eould not more exactly hav
predicted what is nov,- taking place.
And this is the party which claim
the possession of the Government
and thc working out of the destiuie
of this great country. Alas! it will b
a sad day for the Republic, if the
succeed. One will almost be tempte
to doubt the capability of maukin

Columbia ami Augusta Railroad.
Tho Augusta Constitutionalist, of
Tuesday, has au article concerning
the improvements contemplated in
that city, and in that connection
mentions the Columbia and Augusta
Railroad. In its appeal to capitalists
in behalf of tho road, it says that
"should this important link be
pushed to -i successful conclusion,
Augusta would hold the air line traf?
fic North, beyond peradventure. It
would likewise check the efforts now
assiduously in vogue to tap her other
lines. "We mean no harm to other
cities, but jt will never do to permit
them to reap the harvest properly
appertaining to us. Col. Wm. John?
ston is doing yeoman's service for
the railroad system of Augusta, and
wo trust his zeal will be met by an
equal enthusiasm on the part of capi?
talists and corporations. " The Consli
We submit a concise summary of
what this road proposes to accom?
plish : - #
1st. Tho Columbia and Augusta
Railroad will not only offer to Au?
gusta the trade of Richland, Fair?
field, Chester and Yoi'k Districts,
through which the Charlotte Road
now passes, but would offer to her
th* trade of Western North Carolina
and the tobacco of Virginia.
2d. It will more than restore to
Augusta the business she has lost
from Newberry and Laurens Dis?
tricts, which will take thc Columbia
and Augusta Railroad at Louisville,
Lexington and other depots.
3d. The branch road to Ninety-Six
will only be twenty-eight or thirty
miles long, to intersect this road near
the Pine House. This will give ?to
Augusta the trade of Abbeville, An?
derson, Greenville and Pickens Dis?
tricts, and will make this place their
nearest ami best market.
4th. The construction of the Co?
lumbia and Augusta Railroad will not
only restore to Augusta the trade she
lost by the Greenville Road, but will
bring her double what she has lost.
5th. This road, in connection with
the Milledgeviile Road, cuts all roads
taking trade to Charleston and Sa?
vannah, and turns it upon Augusta.
Herein are cogent reasons why this
important, enterprise should receive
an earnest support, and its comple?
tion not only made certain, but rapid.
WHO AKE MEANT BY "MECHANICS
AN1> LABORERS" DI THE INTERNAL
REVENTE LAW?-With regard to the
tax upon payments made to mecha?
nics or laborers employed upon the
public works, the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue decides that the
terms "mechanics"' and "laborers"
were used by Congress in their gene?
ral and popular sense; that they were
not designed by Congress to include
clerks, draughtsmen, ?fcc, but such
persons only as are generally known
as mechanics or laborers, such as car?
penters, bricklayers, machinists, &c.
The operation of the internal revenue
law exempting such workmen from
the provisions of the Act is limited to
such mechanics and laborers as are
employed on public work Or at public
JAYHAWKINC-The St. Louis Dis?
patch states that jayhawking is still
continued in Missouri; and that rob?
bery beiug the motive, the thieves
not unfrequently find their own radi?
cal friends in possession of tempting
things, which they cannot forego
applying to their own use. Tho late
war of rapine and robbery of the
.South taught a large number of peo?
ple now living at the North habits
that are now, and must continue to
be, very inconvenient, to say the
least, to Northern society.
A GREAT RAILROAD.-1,200 new
freight cars and 50 new locomotives
are being added to the rolling stock
of the Chicago and North-western
Railway. This road, on its different
branches, will soon run 130 passen?
ger and baggage cars, 4,500 freight
cars and 210 locomotives. It now
has 1,020 miles of main track open,
and within a year it will be completed
to the Missouri River and connected
with the Pacific Railroad. -
A few days ago, Col. Mciver, ex
Confederate army officer, was arrest?

impossible to learn anything from

Some of the radical newspapers

A Virginia City, Nevada, despatch
says that tho primary election which
was held on thc 21st, on which de?
pended the re-election of Senator
Nye, resulted in favor of Charles E.
DeLong. Mr. Nye, the present Sen?
ator, had no ticket.
Thc President und the Constitutional
?Some days since, we copied, from
the New York Herald, an article de?
claring, with a flourish of trumpets,
that the editorials of that veracious
journal had produced such an effect
upon tho President as to induce him
to reconsider his opposition to the
constitutional amendment, and write
to the Southern Govcrners, counsel?
ling them to follow his example. Of
course, every! oiy knew that Bennett
was drawing the long bow , and mere?
ly laughed ut his unblushing assur?
ance. As if to outdo himself, he now
gives prominence to a contradiction
of this report, and speaks as if some
one else had originated the story. He
"The statement having prevailed
that the President rs about to modify
his policy to the extent of recom?
mending the proposed constitutional
amendments to the adoption of the
Southern unrepresented States, au?
thority is given for a most emphatic
denial. The President considers that
the amendments were prepared in
violation of the fifth article of the
Constitution, and are. therefore, in?
valid, and that it would be in contra?
vention of his oath of office to en?
courage them in any way. There is,
however, reason to believe that he
contemplates recommending to Con?
gress, at its approaching session,
i first, thc admission of the representa
I tivos of all thc States, and then the
proposal of amendments to the Con?
stitution, embracing, in a less objec?
tionable form, thc essential elements
of those now pending."
This is a more probable version of
the matter. It is unquestionably true,
that the amendment was not proposed
to the States in the manner contem?
plated by the Constitution. This lit?
tle defect, however, is of no impor?
tance in the eyes of the radicals.
They violate the Constitution in the
very act of trying to amend it for the
humiliation of the South, and yet
have so much confidence in our
fidelity to constitutional obligations
us to believe that, if they eau foist
this new provision into the Constitu?
tion wo shall implicitly obey its re?
quirements. --Richmond Dispatch.

THE POLITICAL CONTEST TN PENN?
SYLVANIA.-On the 0th of October
the election takes place in Pennsyl?
vania for Governor, Congressmen,
Legislature, Sec. The two parties are
conducting the canvass with great
energy, and mass me?tings are daily

of the State. The conservatives and
the rads both affect to be confident
of victory; but we fear the best
chance is on the side of the rads.

able hail storm on Friday afternoon
of last week. Large quantities fell,

GlCNTLKMEN Ol' THE G?AND 3VKXl While
I wo uro gradually approaching civil rule,
! which is a subject of cun^ratulation. the
slims of the times betoken a dark future.
Military supervision has been greatly re?
laxed, and tho civil magistrate eau awaiti
exercise, generally, his appointed duties,
without interruption, lt is only occasion?
ally that some ignorant or inso?ent subor?
dinate ventures to interfere; such igno
ranco is usually promptly redre ssed, and
tho insolence severely rebuked by tho intel?
ligent and well-bred general officer com?
manding the department in the District ; but
when we look North and sec how surely the
destructive radical power, which now" con?
trols the country, is gathering strength, it
shadows ?nether era of sorrow and ol blood.
To us, who have suffered so much, whoso
wounds aro still bleeding, aud whose for?
tunes are so broken, this is a sad contem?
plation-. We have ho heart and no wish to en?
gage in another contest. With a decimated
country and exhausted means, we have no
power to maintain our constitutional rights
or to re-assert the grand principles upon
which this great Government Was founded,
and for which wo so ardently and so hope?
lessly contended. Gloomy, indeed, is tho
j future, and sad. indee.1., is our fate. When
I say wir, 1 mean the whole country, for !
sec no escape from anarchy, tyranny- am!
misrule, but a return to thosofundamental
principles upon which tho Government was
founded, and which are announced in the
Constitution. But this is not the timoor
the place to speculate on thc political fu?
We are greatly embarrassed in tho ma?
nagement of our domestic affairs, by the
presence and interference of the Freed?
men's bureau. I believe, if the difficult
and. delioate problem of organizing tho
labor of our former slaves was left entirely
to us, who once owned the freedmen, un?
derstand their character an A feel for their
condition, things would be so managed as
to enable us, very soon, to regain their con?
fidence and to infuse into their mind? a
feeling of securitv and protection, which
will be mutually beneficial. But, us mat?
ters now stand, distrust is engendered, the
freedmen are taught to bo suspicious of
their old masters-to believe that their in?
terests are antagonist--and encouraged to
distrust their counsel, advice ami aid; all
which Would soon cease, if this interested
and prejudiced Bureau was removed. It
is a great, useless, expensive and mis?
chievous machinery, which seems to be
kept up simply to grind taxes ont of tho
people for the support of cunning politi?
cians, excited fanatics and political preach?
ers. Our poor black people, '"wards ol'tho
nation," as they are called, whose host
friends are the men who reared and owned
them, would receive little sympathy from
'ir new-found friends as do the poor
?.viiitc people of'the North, were it not for
thc millions of money which tho Congress
has placed at the disposal of the Bureau.
AU that we cart do, under present circum
? stances, is to treat them justly and kindly,
encourage them to work, and assist them
in every way to better their condition and
improve their education. The State has
placed them as fully under thc protection
of the law as tho white residents, and it is
not only our duty, but our interest, to seo
that they receive this protection, and are
not imposed upon. Here and there, 1 have
no doubt, there are instances ifhere a feel?
ing of domineering is manifested against
the negro; but these instances are rare,
and, I will venture to say, it will be found,
on exam- ation, that too men who thus
outrage public sentiment are those who
never owned slaves and were always known
as bullies and rowdies. Such violations ol
the law ure.not to be encouraged. The ne?
gro, now, as he was under thc old svstem,
is protected by the laws, and it Is our
policy, as well as our duty, to soe that this
protection is secured to hun. We must Jet
him know and feel that we aro his best
friends, that we will sustain him when bc
is right, and thus encourage him tobceonn
a useful member of society. In no other waj
can we make him a profitable laborer; in nc
other way can we induce him to assist in de?
veloping the resources of the country, lt it
true, he follows, now, his old instincts, am
there are frequent cases of theft, whicl
must be punished, until ho learns the du?
ties and feels tho dignity of freedom. Ii
time, he will discover that he must sust-ii
trie institutions of society, as well as tin
white man, and that it is l:is interest t,
do so; but, whenever ho does commit crime
let the punishment be administered in dm
course of law, by the proper authorities
and he will soon begin to teel his responsi
bilitios and fear the disgrace and punish
merit which follows a violation of tho law:
of the land. If a different course be pur
sued, and the aggrieved parties take tin
punishment into their own hands, it wil
excite a feeling of resentment and hos
tility, which will bring on collision, am
may end in bloodshed.
Tho respectable colored people-thosi
who have always maintained good charac
tors and secured the esteem and coiifideue
of the whites-should stand up for the im
provomcnt and respectability of their race
and bring all violators of the law to justice
This is a high duty which they owo t
themselves and to the country, because :
they wink at crime and screen offenders
tho disgrace! attaches to thc whole ract
and all suffer aliko in character and rcpt:
tation. They must do as the white peopl
do-when the laws are violated, turn th
offenders over to tho magistrate, let wat
rants bo issued, witnesses bound over, an
the case brought to trial. In this wai
and in no other way, can society be prc
tected, and the character and dignity (
tho raco promoted. I think the black pee
plo, who are trying to do their duty t
themselves and to their country, will tali
this counsel. It is tho counsel of wisdoi
and tho advice of a friend.
Aa pauperism is not to bc encouraged, s
ought vagrancy to be punished. The law;
if properly en forced, are amply sufficiei
to put down this evil. Let every persoi
white or black, who is lound living on th
community, without known or viaibl
means of support, be brought up for ex;
inination, ami if ho cannot give a satisfai
tory account of how he makes a living, h
tho laws against vagrancy be rigidly
forced, and the vagrant put to work for t:
public good. In this way, tho lughwaj
and public buildings of tho State may h
much improved, and the crowds of id]
consumers, both in thc cities and in th
country, greatly diminished.
