Tuesday Morning, July 23,1867.
Con ncc t teat-Cen trail int lon.
In a recent letter written by tbo
Rev. Dr. Bacon, a prominent radical,
of Connecticut, he says:
"Tho people of Connectiout aro
further, to-day, from striking the
disgraceful word ont of their Consti?
tution, than they were six weeks
ago; and their unreasoning opposi?
tion to the change will be moro and
more confirmed if they find it identi?
fied with the policy of centraliza?
Of coarse, the "disgraceful word"
reforrod to is "white," which word
tho people of Connecticut will nol
erase froba their State Constitution,
notwithstanding all tho efforts of thc
In thia lotter, moreover, Dr. Ba
con ?8 down on Sumner's propositioc
to force negro suffrage upon all thc
States. Upon this point, he says:
"A few years' oxperionce of elco
tiona conducted by authority and
under regulntiona proceeding fron
tho seat of tho National Governmonl
would convince Ignotus himself (t
writer opposing him) that thc de?
struction of tho reserved rights o
tho States, and the consequent cen
tralization of power at the nntiona
capital, is identical with tho aubvor
sion of liberty.
"My confidouco is, that any at
tempt to gain for the National Go
vernmeut power over tho electivi
franchise in thc States will result ii
the completo overthrow of whatevc
party may engage in it."
This is about ns good States right
doctriuo ns over emanated froc
any Southern statesman or writci
Tho truth enunciated in tho first c
these two latter paragraphs cannu
be doubted. Continuod and iuoreai
ing centralization of power in any c
the departments of tho Natiaual Gc
vernment, will most certainly subvei
tho true principles of rep?blica
liberty, and render all the State
nothing moro nor less than eolouie
or dependencies, subject to every iii
or doctrine that may bo promulgate
from the national capital. Tho Ami
rican people are not what they hn\
always been represented-lovers <
true liberty-if thoy do not check L
tho power of the ballot-box this dat
g?rons tendency, becoming moro a]
parent every day.
As to tho prediction contained i
tho last paragraph, as it is again
ono of tho most prominent repr
scntativos of his own party, Dr. ]
is evidently alarmed, lest, if this ur
versai suffrage is thrust upon tl
States against their will by that part
it will bo tho forerunner of its d
strnction. Thia may bo so; and
the conservativo element of tho Nor
shall bo found strong enough to si
cesafnlly rosist this innovation up
State rights, after reconstruction, t
re-adhritted Southern States will tb
occupy tho same ground as th
always did. This is by no means
unimportant additional incentivo
the Southern people to register a
vote in complianco with tho laws
Equal rights under tho Cousti
tion, with tho safeguards to 1
rights of tho pooplo of tho sove
States which that instrument conf
and guarantees, is all tho South c
ask for. Wo seo no other way
hor people to secure those but by
early return to the Union of th
fathers in tho shortest and speech
way-in fact, tho only way loft
them. As Gen. nindmnu says ii
recent letter, in which ho takes
ground of other Southern goner
viz: acquiescence in tho milit
bills, ho does so because "tho po
that forces them upon us is grei
than wo can resist, and utter aud ]
inanent ruin may overwhelm us i
further resistance against it." rJ
last reason-tho probability of u
ruin-is the ono which impels ni
urge reconstruction and a retur
tho Union and to prosperity.

THE INDISPENSABLE GRANT.-On
Wednesday, Gou. Grant was iu the
city, on his way to Long Branch,
where he was to bo welcomed hand?
somely by Mr. Seaton and other gon
tlemon, and expected to enjoy some
short respito from the labors aud tur?
moil of the national capital. But ho
was unablo to completo this pleasant
programme; for just at tho hour
when ho was about to leavo tho city
in ono direction ho was summoned
in another; being called by telegraph
to hasten immediately to tho na?
tional capital. Why ho was thus
suddenly called to Washington is not
known, but it has boen conjectured
that, from tho attitude of Mexico and
Europo, tho call might relato to
trouble ou tho Rio Grande; to tho
acts of filibusters; to somo necessity
iu tho Indian war, or some necessity
of reconstruction in the South.
Whether any of these was tho real
cause, is, of course, all a matter of
guess; but ono point of importance
is plain-they caunot get on in Wash?
ington for two days togethor without
Grant. Only his strong common
sense can keep straight tho muddled
mess and prevent the manifold obsti?
nacies and puerillities of the various
departments from running every?
thing into inoxtri ;ablo confusion, and
ho is now practically aud actually
doing tho duty of President, Com?
mander of tho Army, and Seoretary
of War.---.2vew York Herald, 18///.

A LEARNED COOTE?.-Dr. E. E.

aquariameuagerium a curiosity in tho
shapo of a learned cooter-whoso
queer antics aro very amusing. Make
an excuso, that you aro desirous of
obtaining n dose of salts, a blue pill,

RENEW YOUR GARDENS.-A corres?
pondent of tho Camden Journal,
whose editor-Mr. Pogues-wo know
to be a famous gardonor, says that
Irish potatoes, planted this mouth,
will produco a good crop by frost
The seed may be obtained in digging
tho spring crop, by selecting those
too small for use, and drying them in
the shade for a day or two. Snap
benns, pluuted by tho 1st of August,
will afford au abundant supply, and
auy of tho extra early variety of peas
will como in before frost.
PLAIN TA T.K.-Mr. Raymond, of
the New York Timex, says that
"unless tho demoralization which
has been going on in tho public ser
vico for thc hist ten years can be
checked, and that speedily, our whole
financial system must utterly break
down. For when it comos to bc
understood that rogues can ami do
systematically escape taxation, honest
men will refuse to pay." This is to
tho point, and we hope that our in?
fluential cotemporary will put his
shoulder to tho wheel, ?iud earnestly
work to prevent such .. national ca?
THE RAILROAD CONTROVERSY.-Tho |
Orangohurg News says:
On Wednesday last, an application
was mado to his Honor Jud go i llover
for a writ of certiorari against tho
City Council of Columbia. It seems
that the City Council interfered in
tho dispute existing between the
South Carolina Railroad Company
and tho Hamburg and Columbia Kail
road Company; and under the plea
of abating a nuisance, removed au
engine on tho South Carolina Rail?
road track, at tho point where tht
other road desired to cross. The I
spot happened to be in the middle of
"Rico street," ono of the imaginary
highways of Columbia, known only
by being laid down os stich on a map
of tho city, but which has nevorheon
opened for travel as such.
The caso of the petitioners was |
ably advocated by lion. Joseph D.
Pope; while, with equal ability, the
City Council wero represented by
Hon. E. J. Arthur, (both gentlemen
of tho Columbia bar,) who certainly
mado several very strong points in
favor of tho municipal authorities of
tho capital. His Honor Judge]
Glover reserved his decision.
This is an ofT-shoot from tho cele?
brated railroad caso now pending in
chancery between tho rival compa?
nies above named.

SUMNER AND HIS ScnEME.-Mr.
Sumner's proposition to Congress is,
that pardons shall hereafter be grant?
ed by tho Presiden! to former rebel
land-ownora, on condition that thoy
shall part with a share of their es?
tates to their former slaves. He
agrees to pardoning, thon, on some
terms, says the Boston Post, and that
is a stop forward. But he does not
insist that the slave thus benofitod
shall have been loyal. Tho lattor
may have dono all ho could in his
way to aid and strengthen tho Con?
federacy, as every slave did who
stayed on the plantation and pro?
duced food for tho rebel armios.
That matters not with Mr. Sumner.
He asaumos, for the sake of giving a
neat shapo to his philanthropic plan,
that all the white land-holders at the
' South wero hostile to the Union, and
that all tho negroes wero its friends.
He is radically wrong, in both re?
spects, and hm plan is, therefore,
only one of confiscation and agrari?
