Sunday Horning, April 14,1867. ^ |
Unjust ?nd MUoixlevoui.
We have, on more than one occa?
sion, expressed "bur views upon tho
subject of political dir eussions by the
press or people of the South, at this
time; but there are occasions when it
becomes the duty of Southern jour?
nalists to deviate, in one sense, from
this wise line of policy, and to say a
word in defence of thdlr section and
of tho motives and conduct of the
true and gallant people among whom
they live, and whose interests they
are presumed to repreeont. This
journal, a few days ago, expressed its
opinion as to the wisdom or policy
howover right and just tho proceeding
might bo in itself-of testing tho con?
stitutionality of the military bills
before the Supremo Court, feeling
. assured that no good could como of
it, and that, instead of any practical
or permanent benefit resulting to tho
Southern Skates from oven a decision
in .their favor, such a decision would
^oniy open up' a sectional political agi?
tation, and widgn, to a dangerous ex?
tent, the breach existing between the
legislativo and executive departments
of the Government, while, nt the
same time, what is of moro import?
ance to tho Southern States, it Would,
to a certainty, bring upon them a
more oppressive legislation than that
by which they are now governed.
Fine-spun theories of constitutional
right are very pleasant to write about
and dilate upon, nt tho present time,
and very right and proper to ad upon
in times when such action has tho
power to redress wrongs; but wo con?
tend that tho Southern people have
now to deal with the practical, and
that their wisest course is, to pursue
that policy which is likely to relieve
them in the shortest space of time; .
But whilo these are our honest con?
victions on this subject, we cannot re
remain silent when wo see the motives
of the people or authorities of these
Southern States who have taken the
aotionjreferred to are impugned. Wil?
ful misrepresentations of the temper
of tho Southern people, since their
honorable surrender, have dono more
to keep alive sectional hostility than
any other instrumentality that could
bo used. And it is to an instance of
this wrong-doing that wo intend to
refer to in this article. The New
York Times, a professing "conserva?
tive" Republican journal, under the
caption of "The Last Resort of Re?
bellion," has au editorial, in its issue
of the 8th instant, which not only
does great Injustice to the States and
people of the South, but is too well
calculated, by its misrepresentations
of the motives and temper of these
people, to prolong and aggravate that
sectional discord which has already
produced such a vast destruction of
. lifo and property.
The very caption of the article of
tho Times is unjust and unfounded;
"the last resort of rebellion" means,
and is intended to convey the mean?
ing, that "rebellion" still exists. But
tho writer surely intended n severo
sarcasm, when he says that "the in?
junction filed by tho Stato of Missis?
sippi affords the strongest evidence of
the leniency-tho rare forbearance
and magnanimity-with which the
States recently in rebellion have been
treated by tho National Government. "
Tho simple reply to this is that no
injunction has been filed yet, the mo?
tion for that purpose being still under
advisement and open to argument;
and in the next place, wc do not per?
ceive what a motion to filo tho injunc?
tion, or tho Court's permission to do
so, hos to do with tho boasted "le?
niency of tho National Government"
towards the rebels. The whole drift
and tenor of tho sentences we have
quoted are to demonstrate that rebel?
lion still exists in theSouthorn States;
that it is making its final struggle
beforo tho august tribunal of the Su?
preme Court, and that the "National
Government" has been guilty of a
culpablo "leniency" towards the peo?
ple of a State or States, who wish to
test by fair and legal means tho con?
stitutionality of laws imposed on
them, in permitting them to appear
before a high court of justice for that
purpose. The natural effect of theso
allegations upon tho public mind of
the North will bo to convince tho peo?
ple that the rebellion is not crushed,
and that tho National Government
meaning the President-ought to bo
arraigned for extraordinary "le?
niency" in the premises. For this
reason, we say that such articles,
coming from a leading and influen?
tial journnl, aro uujust iii thah: alle?
gations and mischievous in th?*r ten*
But ?be evil ifcten? of the article
we comment on is more fully deve?
loped in the following paragraph.
Speaking of tho people of the South?
ern States, it says:
"Having failed to overcome the
power put forth by the Federal Go?
vernment in support of the Union
having tried ineffectually by the force
of arms to, assert the sovereignty of
the Southern States, in the secession?
ist souse of the term-having denied
the title of the Federal Government
to coerce rebel States into submis?
sion, only yielding when furthor de?
nial had become impossible-they
proposo now to transfer tho struggle
to the courts, and to attain their ends
by bringing the artillery of the Fede?
ral judiciary to bear upon Congress.
The effrontery of the spectacle is as
notable as its novelty. In any other
country, the parties to these proceed?
ings would have figured before tho
law in a totally different character.
They would, long ere now, have been
required to au s wer for their Uves os
rebels awaiting punishment."
Y. a speak of the "evil intent" of
such, writing as this-for such intent
is patent upon its face-to rekindle
and inflame those sectional pr?ju?
dices and animosities which, we were
all fain to bejiove, wore buriod, with
the hatchet, beneath thc apple tree
at Appomattox, and which every
good citizen would be rejoiced to soe
remain unexhumed. There is no
"struggle" to bo "transferred," foi
the struggle ceased two years ago:
nor could the ends sought .to be at?
tained by that "struggle," while il
lasted, be accomplished by even the
"artillery of the Federal judiciary.'
The Times knows this, or, at least
ought to know it, from thc extract
which it hus published from th*
Phoenix and- other Southern journals
From these it learned that tho peo
pie of the South were earnestly do
sirons to engage in the work of re
construction, under the laws o
Congress; but its present editorin
ignores this fact, and is designed b
cast odium upon that people of whoc
the editor, in the Philadelphia Con
vention, expressed a worthier, am
certainly more correct, opinion. W
entreat the Times and other Norther
journals to aid us in the work c
restoration and peace, rather thu
fan to life the expiring embers of die
cord and strife.

Our State exchanges, thia week,
bring us notices of several rneotings
of tho colored people, held in various
Districts. In Sumter, as 'ire learn
from the IVe'ics, a meeting was hold,
but the "report" was not received
until just before the poper was going
to press. The report is aa follows:
"On tho evening of the 8th of
April, at a mass meeting of tho'co?
lored citizens of Sumter, Mr. Abra?
ham Boffin was culled to the chair,
and Mr. Samuel Leo was appointed
"Tho chairman, in a few well-timed
and appropriate remarks, explained
to those who wore present the object
of the meeting-which was, to take
into consideration the best and most
efficient means of bringing about
more kind and friendly feelings be?
tween the two olasses of the people
of our town."
The News says:
. "We will take occasion in our next
to make such remarks, in connection
with the same, as will at once illus
trate and verify the effect produced
upon our white citizens by this praise
worthy action of tho freedmen."
But, iu other communities, the
feelings and purposes of those con?
cerned are shown to be hostile to the
best interest^ of the: peopioj-wH\te
and colored-in this State. Thee Dar?
lington Southerner notices a meeting
of the colored people of that town,
to listen to a lecture by tho Rey. B.
F. Whittemoro, and organize a Na?
tional Republican party. No notice
having been given of the meeting,
tho editor was not in attendance, but
learns, from thoso who were present,
"A studied effort was made on tho
part of the speaker to convince the
freedmen that his true friends were
those of the radical party ; that .the
white men. here were not' only their
enemies but enemies of the Govern?
ment at heart, and were only pre?
vented from showing it by their
weakness. Of course, hil the stale
arguments of the old Abolition party
were brought forward to work upon
an ignorant and simple people, to
get them ready to endorse tho plat?
form made in Charleston. Our in?
formant tells us that a contrast was
drawn between the Democratic and
the Republican parties, where the
speaker made it appear to tho satis?
faction of his audience that the
former had all the bad, and the latter |
all the good, qualities of tho nation;
and then called upon the house to I
say-by rising-which they would |
endorse. Of course all rose up."
The Greenville Mountaineer, of the
lltb, also publishes a report of the
proceedings of "a meeting of the
colored citizens of Greenville." At
this meeting, the officers and speakers
all seom to have been of their own
class; but all tho speeches were in
opposition to the sentiments uttered
by Beverly Nash at tho great meet?
ing held in this city lost month, and
advocating and espousing the policy
an? oause of tho Republican party of
There aro evidently some agencies
at work, seeking to form a discord?
ant party among the "freedmen, as
opposed to the whites of tho South.
Our whole people, both white and
colored, should be on tho alert to
counteract their schemes.

MEETING OF THE COLORED PEOPLE
OF RICHLAND.-We learn from the
Mercury, that a largo meeting of the
colored people of tho lower portion
of Richland District was held on Sa?
turday last, at Gadsden, on the South
Carolina Railroad. The meoting was
addressed by three colored men, and
by Robert Adams, Esq., Capt. Ander -
son, formerly of tho United States
army, and H. L. Jeffers, Esq. Re?
solutions were adopted dedaring the
determination of the colored people
there assembled to allow no outside
interference with their duties as citi?
zens of South Carolina, and to select
from among their former masters,
with whose interests their own are
necessarily interwoven, the most able
and impartial men that they can find,
to represent them in tho law-making
assemblies of tho country.
A letter was read from Beverly
Nash, of this city, regretting his in?
