Tuesday Morning, October 29, 1867.
The New York Times, some time
?ge, wrote an article, which we pub?
lished, to prove tbat there could not
be a colored ascendancy in the voting
population of the South, giving the
figures to show that there was a suffi?
cient preponderance of the white
race to prevent such a result. Since
then, however, registration baa been
progressing throughout tho excluded
States, and has completely over?
turned the calculations of the Times,
in the general result ol' that prelimi?
nary process of making voters.
The statistics show that in Florida,
"'herc, by the last C?ii???, tho whiles
numbered 71,747 to 62,637, the regis?
tration showed 4,733 whites and
9,388 colored voters. In Georgia,
the voters of the two races aro nearly
equal, although the whites have a
majority in population of 125,000.
In Alabama, the majority of the
blacks in registration is 15,561, and
the number of blacks enrolled shows
an increase of over 90,000 since 1860.
In Texas, there is a blaok majority of
10,000, though the census of 1860
?bowed 420,891 whites to 183,021
blacks. In Louisiana, where Qen.
Bonks, at the close of tho war, re?
ported the blacks to have fallen off
one-fourth, the registers foot up
82,907 blacks, and taking the usual
ratio ei population to voters in that
State, exhibits an increase of 193,000
blacks in seven years. In Virginia,
where tho whites had 13,000 majority
registered, the apportionment of
delegates has been so made that in
forty-six districts the whites have a
majority, and the blacks in fifty-nine
How all these queer results have
come about, we cannot say. In
jome of the States, no doubt, mauy
whites kept away from the registra?
tion offices; but still the discrepancy
between the census returns and the
7egistration records ie too great, even
laking into consideration the unpar?
doned, to permit us to attribute it to
natural causes or as the result of acci?
dent. There must be something
wrong in the whole business. In
Georgia, as well as in Virginia, the
apportionment has been made so ns
toproduco tho desired results of a
.Republican or colored majority; and
we see that remonstrances have been
made by some of the prominent citi?
zens of our neighbor over the river
against Gen. Pope's mode of appor?
tionment; but they were made too
Whether Congress will voluntarily
have a revision of the late registra?
tion, or whether in some other way
the work of registration and the
elections to be held under it will ever
tako effect, remaius to bo seen. Pa?
tience? endurance and fortitude aro
the great agencies by which the peo?
ple of the South, and all people who
desire to have right on their side,
must accomplish the end in view.
"We mny have apprehensions for pre?
witt complicities and difficulties in
?nr national affairs, but as to the
final result, none. Tho triumphs of
fraud and injustice were never more
than temporary-those of truth and
justice, ctol nal.
OHIO.-The New York Times re?
marks that the "re-action" in Ohio
38 moro decided timm it seemed to be
at first. Tho vote at the late clectiou
in that State, instead of being light,
turns ont to have been the heaviest
ever cast. In tho counties thus far
officially heard from, there is an in?
crease of about 60,000 over tho vote
two ye-urs ago, of which tho Demo?
crats gain 40,000 and the Republicans
20,000. The Times ia,of opinion that
the theory that tho Republicans
etayed at homo will not answer, but
they have evidently in a good many
cases voted the other way; whilst of
the now votors who have como into
thc field within the lusi two years,
the Domocrats havo got more than
their equal share.
NEW YORK.-Tho Republicans aro
increasing their efforts to carry this
State. They are flooding the doubt?
ful counties with money, and making
every exertion to prevent their defeat
ot the polls. In New York city, tboro
have not been os many votes regis?
tered so far by half as there wero
last year. But tho lists will be again
opened next week. To us tb ero
seems to bo great apathy in the De?
mocratic party of that city.
The Good Tim? Coming.
"Good men are assembling now
and shaking hands, as men who
begin to see daylight, security and
peace. " Thus writes the New York
correspondent of the National Intelli?
gencer, os to the consequence of the
late Northern elections and its effect
npon the public mind. We are afraid
he is too sanguine. There may be
no party in a political sense, as ho
says, in effecting this work of reform ;
but, nevertheless, we notice in most
of our exchanges, that the recent
extraordinary revulsion iu the politi?
cal sentiment of the North and West
is invariably claimed as a "Demo?
The harness of party is difficult to
shake off; but until tho mere success
cf party mid party men takes a sub?
ordinate position amoug those who
take an active part in public affairs,
there is littlo hope for the country.
Principles, not party, must work out
that salvation ao earnestly desired by
good men, both North and South.
The people of this section are willing
even to maintain the fruits of the
war, bitter though they be; and the
people of tho North should see that
nothing more he demanded of the
people they have subdued, viz: the
Union and tho Constitution. In
maintaining these, instead of sucking
new and unnecessary guarantees or
humiliating terms, they will find in
the Southern people true and faith?
? ? ?? >
THE NEW ORLEANS ELECTIONS.
The New York Times has a Now
Orleans correspoudeut, who writes of
the reoent elections in the" following
cheerful strain :
"Tho unexpected check in tho
extreme movement of tho radicals
has thrown a gleam of hope over the
Southern mind. Tho Northern peo?
ple have not then closed their hearts
to any appeal of sympathy for their
former fellow-citizens. They have
not decided to construct a chain
gang of States under guard of negro
muskets. They are not willing that
the cotton crop of America should be
exterminated, and that of English
India installed in its place; nor that
American free-grown sugar should be
drowned ont to insure a perpetual
monopoly to tho slave-grown sugars
of Cuba and Brazil. Still less are
they willing that the Southern whites
shall be disfranchised, that the negro
vote may be held in solido by a par?
ticular party for its own purposes.
The plau of an electoral appanage
does not suit thc people of the United
"These are uuderstood hero to
constitute' a few of the questions de?
cided by the late elections. The
people have decided to restore peace
on tho basis of oblivion and amnesty."
The New York Tribune retorts:
"Tho Southern mind is not the
mind of that decided majority of the
Southern people who rejoice that the
rebellion is a 'Lost Cause,' but of
tbat minority, who, having failed to
divile the Union and monopolize all
power in the Southern half of it,
now modestly propose to rule the
whole by suppressing and disfran?
chising their loyal neighbors. They
will have a good time in carrying this
programme into effect."
PROBABLY A HOAX.-We have re?
ceived several copies of the following
circular, which seems to have been
generally circulated, as reference is
made to it by several papers:
NORTH-WEST NATIONAL UNION AS?
SOCIATION-THE ASSOCIATION OF THE
PEOPLE OF THE WHOLE UNION.-We
propose-First: That there bo set
apart as tho permanent homo of the
Indians, inhabiting tho Ceutrul Ter?
ritories, the occupation of which*
they now dispute with the whites, all
tho territory lying South of thc Bri?
tish lino, West of tho Stato of Min?
nesota, East of Montana, with tho
Eastern line ol that Territory fixed
at or near the M. 110, (Montana and
Northern Idaho being consolidated,)
and North of Whito Earth River
and n line on or near tho 43d parallel;
also, all the country North of tho
Big Wachita, Weat of tho Indian
Territory-"Neosho," and tue States
of Kansas and Nebraska, with the
Western boundaries of those States
fixed at M. 100, to correspond with
the West line of Neosho; and East of
tho Rio Pecos, of New Mexico, and
a line Northward from that river,
near tho M. 101-tho proper East
lino nf Now Mexico :-,nil ColOfftdo,
thenco to tho North line of Colorado
-a concession which, while credit?
able to tho country, would put an
end to tho "Indian Troubles," not?
withstanding tho "Union Pacific
Railroad and Smoky Hill Route."
For President-James Harlan, of
For Vice-President-Jamos L. Orr,
of South Carolina.
CniCAOo, September, 18G7.
The latest new word-it started in
Now York-is "suicided." Its friends
say it is as good os "collided."
An exohange furnishes the follow
ing kaleidoscopic views of passing
events ia tho world:
Russia liberated her serfs. France
obliged Austria to relax her oppress?
ive grasp on Venice, and the Vene?
tians were restored to their liberty.
Four millions of negroes, without
an effort on their part, were liberated,
and the same act liberated the South
from the responsibility of taking
care of them.
Many of the sons of Erin fought
against tho South, to prevent, as
they supposed, tho extension of
slavery. Promises of assistance for
the liberation of Ireland were ex?
pected to bo fulfilled. Fenianistn
was organized-the people adopted
it. and tho clergy opposed it. The
advico of the clergy was rejected, and
tho people were freed from that in?
England covertly instigated and
funned tho flame uf discord in this
country, which resulted in the late
bloody war. Her neutrality deceived
both parties in tho conflict. The
profits from manufactured articles
for war purposes enabled ber citizen^
to be'couie freeholders, and recently
about one million were enfranchised,
thus giving freedom to about five
millions of people.
Doubtless, the free discussion of
the "American questiou" was the
instrumental cause of openiug their
eyes to a right appreciation of liberty.
The Government of England hoped
for the reverse; Providence ordained
A word or blink from Napoleon the
Third caused nations to prepare for
war, stocks to rise or fall, and set the
knowing ones agog to defiue the
meaning of a seutence uttered bv
Bismarck exorcised this ghost of
the world, aud also put a quietus
upon that monster of oppression,
"the balance of power."
This Bismarck, who may be sur?
named Jack, the Giant Killer, may
give trouble yet.
The Cretans will probably get free?
dom, and tho Russians gain posses?
sion of Constantinople, which will
enable them to enjoy the freedom of

Thc Trial ot nr. Davis.
The New York Tribune, of tho 25th
"Chief Justice Chase, the whole
country will gladly hear, has given
notice that bo will preside at the trial
of Jefferson Davis, provided the
parties will consent to bring it on
November 13th instead of November
27th-tho latter being the day speci?
fied in Davis* bail-bond for his ap?
pearance to answer to tho indictment
found against him. As the Chief
Justice is to preside iu the Supreme
Court, which commences its annual
session on the first Monday in De?
cember, his request is reasonable,
and, wo presume, will be acceeded to.
So we may consider it settled that the
trial will commence on the 13th prox?

"May we not now hope that the
Attorney-General will lead the prose?
cution? This is no petty larceny
matter. It were sheer affectation to
mistake it as other than a great State
trial-one destined to be cited as a
precedent-to be studied and com?
mented on through many years. The
questions involved are those of pub?
lic and constitutional law-thero are
no facts in dispute, and tho exami?
nation of witnesses need not occupy
two hours. Wo judge, also, that tho
empanneling of tho jury need excite
little interest, since tho issue must
depeud on tho law of tho case as
ruled by tho Court. That Jefferson
Davis levied war against tho United
States is as incontestable a fact as
that Andrew Johnson is now Presi?
dent, or Salmon P. Cbaso Chief Jus?
tice; wo cannotgsuppose that eminent
lawyers will hesitate to admit it.
And, as tho only grave questions in?
volved aro questions-of law, it would
seom plain that the law on which a
conviction is demanded should be
propounded and set forth by tho
highest law officer of tho Govern?
ment-in effect, by tho Government

From an adjoining room I heard a
