..Saturrlay Morning;, Nov. 16,1867.
A Model Vlce-Pnutdent. j
A correspondent of tho Cincinnati
Commercial has had a day's interview
with Bon. Wade, tho acting Vice
president of the United States. Tho
?or resp on du nt professes to set. forth
tho views of -this distinguished per?
sonage in relation to the Ohio eleo
tion and other topics growing ont of
it. He details in full tho political
ideas of Mr. "Wade, ns expressed in
.his own choice language. Tho fol?
lowing extracts are specimens of tho
3tylo of the man who now fills the
second.office in the republic. Ref er?
ring to the Ohio election;, tho corres?
pondent asks him :
"Well, old gentleman, how do you
like it as far ns you've got?" To
"whioh Mr. Wade roplies: ,**It's the
fate of war. We're d-d badly
^whipped; but it can't be helped. We
must get ready for anothor round at
Df the defeat of the suffrage
.amendment, he says:
"I'll be for keeping it up until we
do win; for, by the Eternal God,
they can't bent as all the time on a
question like that. * * * I won't
back a d-d inch."
Referring to weak-kneed radicals:
* 'Hell's full of such radicals as we
have now. There'll be the damndest
craw-fishing you ever saw from this
In reply to a question whether Mr.
Lincoln left little or no property be?
hind, he said:
"It's a d-d lie. Mrs. Lincoln was
very well off, and didn't noed even
what she got ($25,000) from Con?
gress. She took u hundred boxes of
something or other-I don't know
what-away with her, and the Com?
missioner of Public Buildings swore
there were fifteen other boxes that
she wanted to carry off, and he had
to interfere to prevent her. At any
rate, she cleaned out the White
House. I didn't know but she was
going to run a big hotel with all she
o arri ed ott"
His opinion of Stevens' confisca?
tion bill: "A piece of d-d foolery."
In regard to impeachment: "What
thc devil has un election in Ohio to
do with the matter?" Ho would like
to know whether Grant was "for
Johnson or for Congress, or what
the devil he was for." "When he
(Wade) endeavored to elicit from
Grant his political views, he turned
the conversation to horses !" "Con?
servative devils," is the complimen?
tary phrase Mr. Wade applies to
those who cannot "jump forwards,"
as far os himself. "We'll give thom
(the Southern States) a Republican
form of Government, in spite of thc
devil and all his agents, i ucl nd in g
We extract the above profane ut
terances for the purpose of exhibit
ing to our readers the utter demoral
ization which is sweeping over thc
politicians of the present day. Talk
ing of impeachment, we would sug
gest to the House of Representatives
to investigate and inquire into tin
truth of the allegations thus made
and if found to be true, impend
and dethrone this individual, wh<
hos disgraced, not only the higl
office he fills, but has brought a staii
npon tho reputation of tho country
If this cannot be done, let the party
one of whose leaders he is, put i
prohibitory plank in their platforn
Tr/E CONVENTION ADDRESS. -Thi
Atlanta Intelligencer, spanking of thi
address put forth by tho Con
servative Convontion, in Columbia
concludes os follows:
The recent elections in the Nortl
and West inspire us with confhlonc
that theso appeals will not bo disre
garded-that they will not fall upoi
the ears and hearts of tho white race
inhabiting those sections of tho Am?
rican Republic, as rains upon th
sandy deserts, to bo absorbed, yield
ing no sign thereafter of Nature'
beneficence to man. The period i
Americau history has passed, who
sectional strife between North an
South' should ali?nate tho two pee
pies and make the one tho enomy ?
the other. Tho cause of forme
aiienaiiou and war has neon remove
-African slavery, tho great bono <
contention, is dead. In its intei
mont, however, thero has arisen
war of race against race, instigate
by evil-disposed white, men, moro U
the sako of attniuing political powe
than love for tho negro, or any oth<
laudable or hur.ana purposo. Wi
tho white men of the North and tl
great West fail to como to the r?sout
Wo answer for them-they will nt
Wade's oaths aro of the moutl
filling kind. He damns everyboc1
and is sure to bo damned in return.
The National Jntetttgmcer, of
Wednesday, has an article colling
upon the Southern people io petition
Congress for relief from, the recon?
struction :jneasures. It says:
"Tho people have distinctly pro?
tested at the ballot-boxes of the
North against tho excesses and op?
pressions which abound in the legis?
lation of tho past year, touching the
South. Everybody kuows it, and
most of tho radical press are ashnmed
to deny, and bluntly admit it. Then,
may not tho people of the Sonth lift
up their mauoolud arms and show
their chains? May they not ask tho
ropeal bf this anomalous, tyrannical,
and revolutionary programme of re?
construction? They would bo ad?
dressing themselves to representa?
tives who aro to bo re-elected next
yefir? s?d Trho dare net turz? a u&u
ear to petitioners for whom their con?
stituents havo so clearly manifested
sympathy and remorse. Lot the case
bo made on the floors of Congress.
Let no scrap-book tattlings deform
again tho consultations of a National
Legislature; but let the solemn ap?
peal bo made as becomes a noble peo?
ple, and lot it be hoard as befits n
high deliberative body, and let its
prayor be granted, as commanded by
tho magnanimous masses of tho
North at the recent elections."
There is some forco in tho above
suggestion. This is tho peaceable
way to unito the people of both sec?
tions, and it is hardly possible that
Congress could turn a deaf car to
such a remonstrance from tho pooplo
of ten States. The suggestion is at
kost worthy of tho consideration of
those who aro now suffering from our
present embarrassed political situa?
THE TIUBUNE ON THE CONVENTION.
On tho principio that wc ought to
know "whatever our enemies say of
us, we publish tho following com?
menta on our Convention and its
address, from tho New York Tribune:
The Conservative State Convention
of South Carolina, which assembled
at Columbia, on the 7th inst., adopt?
ed an address to tho people, wherein
it is set forth that tho State must
hereafter raiso less cotton and more
corn; that free nejrj labor is a failure;
that by tho extension ol tho suiTrago
to the colored race, "ar ^uornutaud
depraved race ?3 place 1 m power and
influence above the virtuous, the
educated, and thc refiued." This is
a very sad result, and wc can sympa?
thize with thc South Carolinians, for
it is just what wc havo to stand, our?
selves, in New York city and the
vicinity. Hore we, tho Republicans,
are all "virtuous, educated and re?
fined," whilo our opponents aro an
exceedingly "ignorant and depraved
raco." And yet we are tormented,
while they are comforted. Indeed,
we somctimas think that a certain
amount of depravity is a good thing,
and we are very sorry that the con?
servatives of South Carolina have not
a spice of it. Too much righteous?
ness has brought them to griof. As
to that little question whether free
negro labor pays, wo havo not yet
determined whether it pays anything
I to the conservative who refuses to
hire it, but to the free negro wo con?
clude that it pays. He has deposited
eight millions of dollars in the sav?
ings' banks established by the
i Freedmen's Bureau during tho past
[ year, and wo doubt if slavery evei
' paid tho negro as well as that.
SUBSTITUTE FOB COTTON.-Wo no?
tice in tho Now Orleans journ.ds thc
advertisement of tho Barnie plant, a
Mexican production, which yields n
fibre finer and whiter than grass cloth,
worth sixty cents n pound in London.
The New Orleans Picayune speaks ol
it as a textile plant, which beinj
perennial, growing from tho roots
from yoar to year, producing, aftei
being well rooted, from two to foin
crops of ono hundred and iiftj
pounds of clear fibre per season, ant
this being vastly finer and st rouge]
than cotton or linen, sells at sixty U
sixty-five cents per pound in speeie
and having none of tho vicissitude!
of cotton, promises to become a chic
crop in our cultivation. Tho plan
is said to bc rapidly and easily pro
pngatod, one mun in Mississipp
multiplying olcven small root cutting:
j in four months to ouo hundred
Three thousand will plant au acre.
Tho fibre is cleaned by muchim
Sower, und is left in long skeins
oautifnlly white, superior in quality
to India or China grass.
CouNTEBErxr TWENTY-FIVE CEN:
NOTES.-It has already been stato<
that a number of spurious twouty-fivi
cont notes havo been put in circula
tion. They aro said to bo the bes
executed of this denomination ye
manufactured, and aro calculated t<
deceivo the most careful mone;

known by tho paper being a trifl

sound view? of the present political
situation is from the New York"
Every House of Representatives is
the sole judge of the qualifications of
its members; and it is a flagrant in?
consistency for Republican jcurnals
to stigmatize its future exorcise, as
"revolutionary," after what they
have been defending for the last two
"The remaining part of tho plan
for disposing of tho bastard negro
governments is defensible on per?
fectly solid grounds. By tho Con?
stitution, a majority of each Houso
is a quorum; a majority of tho Se?
nate, therefore, possesses authority to
organize and aol as that body. Our
suggestion was, that when tho North?
ern conservative Senators and tho
Southern Se&fttcf? uro a majority,
the Senate will have passed out of
the control of tho Republicans. Tho
idea that the Republican minority
will set themselves up for tho Senate
is preposterous. What would they
gain by it? Being a minority, they
could merely adjourn from day to
day, but could transact no business.
When tho House shall have admitted
tho Southern representatives, and the
Republicans have dwindled to a
minority in tho Semite, there is no
danger that this helpless minority
will stand out and attempt to resist
tho courso of events. If the Demo?
crats olect the next President, and a
majority of tho next House, tho bas?
tard negro governments may bo
quietly displaced without a resort to
any revolutionary proceedings, or to
any measures for which the Republi?
can party has not set precedents.
Cn.\KOE TO A GKAND JURY.-Ihe
Sumter Watchman, referring to the
charge of Judge Moses, delivered to
tho Grand Jury of Sumter District,
at tho scssiou now proceeding, says
that, amongst other things, his Honor
contended that whether tho existiug
military authority constituted a Go?
vernment de facto or de jure, it was
nevertheless a Government, existing
with ample power to enforce its de?
crees, and as such it was tho policy of
the country to submit to it, executing
its exactions, and looking to relief
from tho great popular revulsion now
in progress. Ho also contended that
tho presont Government, or tho laws
embraced in tho orders of the Gene?
ral Commanding, existed by legisla?
tive enactment. That wherever there
was Government, and power to en
forco it, there must bo legislative
capacity and enactments somewhere,
whothet it bo centred in one person,
reigning as a monarch, or in a legis?
lative body, created by the will of the
His Honor alluded to the order of
Gen. Sickles, in regard to debt, Are.,
and calling up several of its provi?
sions, which were in the face of tho
statutes of the State and tho deci?
dions of the highest court. And yet
these wore not only obeyed by every
civil officer of tho Suite, but some of
them applauded by the mass of tho
CHURCH TROURI.ES.-The extrn or?
dinary scene in tho Presbyterian
Assembly in your city yesterday
tho fraternization of the Low Church
Episcopalians with the members of
that body-is creating a tremendous
breeze among tho High Church Epis?
copalians, who say that something
must now be done to counteract tho
demoralizing influence upon the
Church of such proceedings. They
will stand it no longer.
While it is determined, therefore,
to proceed with tho trial of . tho Rev.
Mr. Tyng, they are also resolved,
with renewed emphasis, to warn
their congregations against the sin of
"schism," and of associating with
"schismatics;" and to that ond, Rev.
Mr. Dix leads off with a sermon at
St. Luke's to-morrow evening, taking
tho ground that it is not for the inte?
rest of tho Church to admit within
her fold a non-episcopal ministry.
This discourse is to bo followed up
by others of a Uko tenor in all tho
High Church pulpits of the*ity.

RETORTED DIFFICULTY IN LOUISI?
ANA-TEN FREEDMEN KILLED.-The
Louisiana Baptist, published at Mount
Lebanon, La., lins the following in
its issue of tho 17th of last mouth:
"A goutleman just from Texas, wo
understand, relates tho following cir
enmstance as having occurred on
Black Bayou, near Jefferson. We
learn that ho was near the farm where
tho facts took place, a few days nftor
tho occurrence. A farmer had a
number of hands employed, under
written contract for one-third of tho
orop. Ho was from home when they
oommenccd gathering, zud, cn rc
turning, found that they were taking
half instead of a third of tho crop.
He remonstrated aud told them of
the ooinruot, but they beoame en?
raged, and fi nally made an attack
upon him, and he, in dofouding him?
self, shot down four of them with a
revolver. Going to town, ho report?
ed the facts te a Federal officer, who
sent an armed force to investigate
and set things right. The negroes
defied and finally attacked this force,
when six more were shot down."
The Roman Catholic Bishop, of
Liverpool, has set all that city quar?
reling, by preaching agaiust "low

THE EVANUELTOAJJ LUTHERAN ST
??toi?.-This religious body~met yes?
terday moruiug, at the Wentworth
Street Lutheran Church, where the 1
BJ nodical sermon was preached by
the President, Rev. T. S. Boniest,
from the 2d Epistle of Timothy, 2d
ohaptor and 9th verse, "Wherein I
suffer trouble, ns an evil doer, even
unto bcnuls; but tho Word of God is
not bound." Tho President's report
was read, giving an account of the
condition of the different churches
in tho Synod, together with other
mattere connected with his ofllco. At
tho close of the services, an election
for Syuodical officers was held, which
resulted in the re-election of tho pr??

THE G HEAT STOKM AT ST. THOMAS.
Our specinl correspondence from St.
Thomas, dated November 1, gives
further particulars of tho late terriblo
hurricane in that neighborhood. It j
lasted only four hours, bat in that time
over 5U0 persons wcro drowned. The
steamer Cuinngucy lost seventeen,
tho Wye fifty-three, and the Rhone
ono hundred and thirty of those on
board. The fury of the tempest was
such, that houses were lifted bodily
from their places of safety on shore
and carried out to sea. Every dwell?

tho harbor, received somo damage.
Tho loss is estimated at over &S,000,

In your issue of this morning, I
observe that the person who had in
possession certain jewels belonging to
Gen. John S. Preston, of this city,
claims to have belonged to a regiment
I once had tho honor to command.
I remember a scoundrel by the name
of MoLein, a member of Company
E, of my regiment. His record is aa
follows: "General skulker-deserted
