FOR CONSUMPTIVES.-Tho Phila?
delphia Ledger asks, if it occurred
to tho company which proposes to
run regidar steamers up tho Amazon
from Para, for a distance of 2,500
miles from its month, that it will
be able to transport passengers direct
into the inland valley of Jauja, where
the consumptive will obtain restora?
tion of health and a cure of a too
generally incurable disenso? The
voyage, though long, may ho made
almost without changing vessels,
and will be found neither tedious
nor debilitating. It will introduce
travelers into somo of the most mag?
nificent scenery in tho world. It
has been known to the natives, from
time immemorial, that a removal of
consumptive patients, even in the
stage, of well-marked ulceration< and
cavities in the lungs, to thc Valley
of Jauja, at a height of 10,000 feet
abovo the sea, was followed by nu
almost invariable suspension of tho
disease. Th's fact is corroborated
by the experience of physicians of
Peru at tho present time. From
tho statistics of Lima, published in

per cent, of the cases of consump?
tion sent to thc Janja Valley aro

A Story fiom Rpaniitt ll??t<rry.
Senator Salisbury, of Delaware, in.
his speech iu tho Senat?, a few days
siueo, in trying to inculcate the ne?
cessity of reconciliation as well 08 re?
construction, to secure the peace and
promote the welfare of the Govern?
ment, read a most beautiful story
from Spanish-history, which we hero
.take tho liberty of repeating:
Some centuries ago. two kings
were contending for tho crown of
Castile. I forgot their names for the
present, but to (facilitate the telling
of my story, I shall call one Alphonso
and the other John. Alphonso pro?
claimed, of course, that John was a
usurper and a rebel, and John re?
turned tho compliment. Well, John
at last defeated his rival, horse and
foot, and carried everything triumph?
antly before him, with the exception
of a single town, which Alphonso
had entrusted to a st t old knight,
called Aguilar, and which, after a
long siege, still remained impregna?
ble, "xou have done enough for
honor," said King John, ono day, to
the knight, "surrender, and you shall
have tho most liberal terms." "If
you had read the history of your
country," answered Angin)ar, "you
would have known that none of my
race ever capitulated." "I will starve
you, proud and obstinate fool."
"Starre the eagle, if you can." "I
will put you and the whole garrison
to the sword." "Try," was the la?
conic reply, and the siege went on.
One morning, as the rising sun was
beginning to gild with its rays the
highest towers of the beleaguered
city, a parley sounded from the camp
of the enemy. The. old knight ap?
peared on tho wall, and looked down
on tho king below. "Surrender,"
said John, again; "my rival, Alphon?
so, is dead, and tho whole of Castih
recognizes my sway as that of thc le?
gitimate sovereign." "Sire, I be?
lieve you, hut I must seo my dead
master." "Go, then, to Seville,
where his body lies. You have ni)
royal word that I shall attempt no?
thing against you on your way, noi
against the city in your absence'
Tho knight came out with bannen
flying, and a small escort of grim
visaged warriors. Behind him th?
gates closed; before him the. dens(
battalions of thc enemy opened theil
ranks, and as he passed along, slowb
riding his noble war-house, shouts o
admiration burst wide and far fron
tho whole host who had so often wit
nessed his deeds "of valor, and thi
echoes of the loud and enthus?ostii
greeting accompanied him until th?
.red plume which waved over his bel
met was ont of sight. He arrived a
Seville, and went straight to tho Ca
thedroi, where he found tho tomb o
his former sovereign. Ho had i
o?oncd, and after gazing awhile wi tl
moist eyes at the pale face which mc
his look, he thus addressed the dea<
monarch: "Sire, I had sworn neve
to deliver to any but yourself th
keys of the town which you had en
trusted to my care. Hero they arc
I have kept my oath," and he deposit
cd thom on the breast of King Al
phonso. Then bestriding his goo
steed, he galloped back to his post
As soon as he approached, again th
ranks of the enemy opened, an
King John confronted him. "Well,
said tho king, "are you satisfied, an
?lo you now give up tho contest?
"Yes, sire." "Where are the keys c
the town?" "On King Alphonso'
breast." "Go and get them. W
meet no more." "In Heaven we sha
never part," exclaimeil tho kinr.
"Get the keys back yourself, and r?
main in command of thc town in m
name." Tho followers of tho kin
murmured, and complained of hi
rewarding a rebel. "He is no long?
one. Such rebels, when won, becom
thc best ?)f subjects."
Commenting on this, tho Senate
said: "Let tho Republican part
take a lesson from thia incident i
Spanish history, ami now that tl:
people have deposited the keys upo
the deail body of tho Southern Coi
federacy, let them say with Kin
John, 'No longer rebels-wo nev?
part more.' "

responso to tho call made by the Now

Nsw ORLEANS, LA., March 23.
Wm. H. C. King, Editor of the New
Orleans Times, New Orleans, La.
DEAR SIR: You have dono me the
honor to call for my opinion relative
to the action of the South under the
military bill. Haviug seldom taken
any part in politics, I do not feel well
qualified to advise on so momentous
a question; nevertheless, os the same
i desire to obtain my views - has boen
manifested from various quarters, I
shall not shrink from tho responsi?
bility of expressing them, in the hope
that they may tend to quiet the publia
mind, so justly alarmed at this mo?
In my humble opiniou, we have
but one of two things to do-resist or
submit. The first is inadmissible, in
our painfully exhausted condition.
Four years of a desperate war have
taught us that the "argument of the
sw?rd" can no longer bo resorted to
by ns to redress our grievances. Yv*e
must, therefore, submit; but with
that calm dignity becoming our man?
hood and Our lost independence.
Having been overpowered in the
late struggle, we can submit to the
harsh and ungenerous conditions of
our conquerors without dishonor, and
we must adopt tho least of two evils;
a futile resistance would only cause
our rivets to be driven closer; we
must. then ncquiesco or ? leave tho
country. But we love too dearly the
land of our birth to abandon it in its
hour of severest trial. Wo should
avoid, also, bringing it, by internal
dissensions, to the conditi o of poor
Mexico, and the unfortunate South
With regard to the suffrage of tho
freedmen, however objectionable it
may be at present, it is an element of
strength for tho future. If properly
handled and directed, wo shall defeat
our adversaries with their own wea?
Tho negro is Southern born; with
a littlo education aud some property
qualilications, he can bo made to take
sufficient interest in the affairs and
prosperity of the South to insure nu
intelligent vote on his part.
In our future political contests with
the North, on ^protective tariffs, in?
ternal improvements, etc., the freed?
men of the South will sido with the
whites of the South and of tho West,
and they will thus contribute to give
us back the influence we formerly had
in the councils of tho nation.
Our pooplo should understand that
the radicals can remain in power only
so long ns tho public excitement is
kept up; as with tho turbid waters of
tho Mississippi Riyer, the sedimentary
particles are kept up at tho surface
only BO long as tho waters are in mo?
tion; the instant thc current is
checked, those particles fall to tho
bottom. Thus will it be with the
radicals, when peace and quiet are
restored to the country; tho con?
servatives will then take the reins in
their own bauds, and tho constitu?
tional laws of the land will once more
prevail. I remain yours, respectfully,
G. T. BEAUREGARD.
NEGRO SUFFRAGES-Negro suffrage,
though revolting to tho people of this
generation, and scarcely fess so in
New York than in Georgia, prevailed
at times In all tho old original thir?
teen States, exeept in South Carolina.
In New York, which now forbids
negro suffrage, they voted when it
was a slave State; as they also did in
Maryland until 1801, and in North
Carolina until 1835, and until nearly
that time in Tennessee. It is stated
that Hon. John Belt, of Tennessee,
ran Felix Grundy out of Congress,
in tho Nashvillo District, by negro
votes; and in tho Old Dominion, in
tho earlier days, this class were not
disfranchised. If there were found
to be good reasons for modifying the
suffrage laws of those States, may we
not feel satisfied that tho abuse of
tho privilege will be attended with
like modifications in tho future? It
would not surprise us to seo the first
movers for a repeal of tho recon?
struction bill from tho ranks of those
who enacted it; for, in the language
of a Virginia paper, a united and
harmonious white population will
suffer little inconvenience from uni?
versal suffrage A little kindly con?
ciliation and patient teaching on our
part will soon enable. tho newly en?
franchised colored mun to see that
his own interest requires him to co?
operate with his former master, and,
after all, his best friend, rather than
to follow tho lead of designing de?
ceivers, who woidd rob him of his
paltry savings and lure him into a
destructive contest of races.
