Recognition of Bellig?rant*-^> A. Oe ntl
It will bo remembered thai the
recent annual message of President
Johnson contained the following
"No arrangement has as yet been
reached for the settlement of our
claims for British depredations upon
the commerce of the United States.
I bave felt it my duty to decline the
proposition of arbitration made by
her Majesty's Government, because it
has hitherto beeu accompanied by
reservations and limitations incom?
patible with the rights, interests and
honor of our country. It is not to
be apprehended that Great Britain
will persist in her refusal to satisfy
thoso just and reasonable chums,
winch involve the sacred principle ot
non-intervention-a principle hence?
forth not more important to the
United States than to all other com?
It was stated ia thc Senate, while
Mr. Chandler's resolution .was under
discussion, that the Cn tire corres?
pondence on the subject^ of our
claims must soon bo communicated
to that body. lu thc meantime,
London papers contain despatched
from Lord Stanley, in relation to the
subjeot, to the British Minister at
Washington. In these, it appears
that Lord Stanley, while consenting
to a restricted arbitration of the
Alabama claims, absolutely refused
to accept the proposal of Mr. Se?
ward, that, together with that sub?
jeot, tho question should also be
submitted to arbitration, whether the
policy of the British Government, in
recognizing the Confederate States as
a belligerent power, was or was not
suitable to the circumstances of the
timo when the recognition was made.
On tho part of this Government, the
British proposal for a restricted arbi?
tration of our claims, moral and
legal, is declined. It seems that Mr.
Seward either considered, or affected
diplomatically to believe, that the
entiro question of the Alabama
claims, thc general claims, and the
propriety of tho recognition by the
British Government of tho bellige?
rent character of tho Confederate
States, were all embraced in the offer
of arbitration. This offer of general
arbitration having been declined by
the British Government, all negotia?
tions have ceased, and tho two Go?
vernments are now at a dead lock iu
regard to thom.
The policy of the Uuited Stales iu
past times, would seem to bo in op?
position to the claim put forward by
Mr. Seward. Thc recognition by
this country of the revolted South
American Colonies of Spain, Presi?
dent Madison, at an early period of
the rovolt, issued a proclamation or
instructions to the collectors of thc
customs, to admit tho flog of the
provinces, by which their ships be?
come entitled, in the ports of the
United States, to every privilege
granted to the ships of other foreign
powers, which he followed up by n
d?claration that these provinces wore
party to a civil war, in which their
rights, as relates to neutrals, were
eqnal to the rights of Spain. All the
debates on tho neutrality law of 1817,
show no doubt about the right of a
nation to recoguizo oven tho inde?
pendence of revolted oolonies, and to
decido for itself whether such au act
is justified by tho circumstance of the
time. And this is tho true ground,
for in the exerciso of the right of
recognizing tho belligerent power, or
independence of revolted colonies,
every Government must judge for it
oelf, whether it is making that ac?
knowledgment to an immuture revo?
lution, or whether the rovolt has
th' so elements of stability which en
title it to such recognition. This
being the case, wo think it is unfor?
tunate that Mr. Soward pressed such
viows as ho presented on this point,
as a subject to be arbitrated by a
third party. Tho ground ho takes,
not bo sustained, and unless
tito position bo receded from, and
tho claims for depredations ou the
United States commerce, by tho
Alabama and other Confederate ves?
sels, bo separated from this question
of recognition, it may bo a long timo
beforo tho dead lock now existing
with regard to th eso negotiations, be
romoved or opened by diplomacy.
Tho Memphis A valanche saysjthere
are 20,000 starving negroes in that
. "Chrlstniti? ot ttl? South."
The NejtYorit Titees, of the 25th
instant, has a lugubrious article un
der the above caption, in which it
truly says that the contrast between
the Christmas of t?-day-that is,
speaking of the Sooth-and the
Christmas before the war, will illus?
trate the unhappy change which has
taken place in the fortunes of the
Sonth. It used to be literally a sea?
son of peace and good will. Slavery,
the Times says, then put on its holi?
day garb; there was feasting and
merry-making everywhere. The hos?
pitality of tho mftision was then
more bounteous than ever. The
bondsmen, for the time, forgot their
bondage, and for a week gave them?
selves up to the rollicking enjoyment,
in which Sambo distances all com
ptuilors. Ii waa a week ol festivity j
and fun, of visiting and receiving
visits, of absence from the care and
toil which composed tho sum of fifty?
one parts of every year.
Suoh in brief is the picture of
"Christmas at the South," which tho
Times ratho r truthfully presents.
But even this description fails to
convey the enjoy mont and fun which
it was the privilege arid immunity of
the slaves to luxuriate in daring the
holidays. Christmas gifts from the
white folks; the furnishing of teams
to bring their year's saving of pro
luce to market; the real enjoyment
sf the planters, in seeing and sharing
in the festivities of "their people,"
ill contributed to the cementing of
ho natural ties existing between the
naster and his servants; and a hap?
pier set of laborers, and a more con?
genial intermingling between the em?
ployers and their employees, never
lid exist in any country on the faoe
>f the earth. This has all been swept
iway-irrecoverably destroyed, and
ve have left us in the South, nothing
mt want, misery and destitution,
.villi distrust, fast ripening into hit?
ler animosity between the two races,
?vhich had lived so long happy to?
gether. Let tho Times draw this
nc turo also:
"To-day tho sombre reality of the
revolution which has been effected,
rill bo felt in every portion of the
South. A merry Christmas will not
je known anywhere. There can be
io exchange of 'tue compliments of
;he season' which will not sound like
jitter mockery. Despair, or some
.hing like it, reigns in the mansions,
ind destitution is supreme in the
?ovels. Grim poverty makes its
iresenco felt everywhere. Those who
vere once rich find themselves mo
meed with want, and those who,
bough always poor, were always
provided for, now find themselves
lungry and helpless. The bond of
lymputhy that formerly held these
dusses together may not be absolutc
y destroyed, but un ever-present
itraiu threatens its destruction, and
neanwhilo the redeeming fruits of
;he old relationship ure seen no more.
Tague apprehension ia on one side
lemands that yield not to reason are
?ppeoring on tho other. Neither side
tnows what is coming. Tho blacks
rill not accept freedom as a substi
:uto for food, and the whites are
"earful of tho excesses to which
famine-stricken ignorance not seldom
"Altogether, then, the Christmas
Day of 1SG7 will bo a black day
throughout tho Southern States.
Memories of the past will riso to
ai uko it miserable; the gloom of the
present and the darkness of the
future will swell the volume of suffer?
ing sud divest thu season of both
holiness and pqace. Foi the freed?
men,' in many districts, the only de?
pendence is on tho Bureau-the only
chance of living honestly is in the
line which leads to pauperism. For
the great body of tho whites, espe?
cially in the ootton districts, there is
ho hope except in a magnanimity yet
undeveloped-no road to deliverance
but that which leads through the
dark valley of degradation and
. And who is responsible for tho
blighting chango which has como
over the unhappy South? "Who must
bear tho blame of the blacks not ac?
cepting freedom as a substitute for
food? In short, who bus destroyed
the weal and prosperity of the whole
country? Tho answer is easy and
patent to the mind of every thinking
man North and South. It was that
party which, originating in a stupid
und ignorant fanaticism, soon leaven?
ed tho whole lump of Northern poli?
tics, and was greedily seized upon by
ambitious demagogues, not to rid
tho country of "thecurseof slavery,''
as they called it; not to elevate the
black man or ameliorate the condi?
tion of his race; but to foist them?
selves into power-in which devilish
scheme they snccecded-and the pro?
longed aggravation of the evil is to
retain that power, in which, we trust
in God, they will not lfc<xa(& Ot
that party, in its infancy^ and in its
earlier policies, the Times was au able
coadjutor and faithful ally; and
though remorse-perhaps more likely
its policy-drives it in a contrary di?
rection, its feigned repentanco and;
it? lachrymose appeals come too late.
THE NATUBALIZATION QUESTION.
From the spirit manifested by Con?
gress in a recent discussion upon the
standing of naturalised citizens, it is
evident that th?: English denial of
the right of expatriation will bc re?
sisted by this \sountry. It has been
admitted that this subject of natural?
ization is a matter for Executive
action, and does not require any spe?
cial legislation by Congress, aud it
is evident that this body will sustain
thc President in any judicious notion
that hos for its object the vindication
of tho rights of naturalized citizens
and their equality with natives, as far
as foreign Governments are con?
cerned. There is both interest and
political capital in this question,
and, although there is no likelihood
of any serious complication, it will
certainly be pressed in such a way as
to gratify the feelings and secure the
support of the Irish-Americans.

petition was Is?i week presented to
the President, signed by about 800

body," styled a Convention, has been
in session at the capital of that State,
aud has passed ordinances setting
aside the Constitution and laws of
Alabama, and disfranchising many of
her citizens who have already re?
ceived the Executive pardon for the
offences alleged against them, nud
asking the interposition of the Pre?
sident to prevent the ordinances of
said Convention from being carried

OUR MECHANICS.-There is an ab?
surd notion prevalent now-a-days,
that mechanical pursuits are less
"respectable" thau professions. The
brightest names which now adorn
thc annals of all countries aro of the
best mechanics, who have blessed
mankind with tho productions of
their genius. All that is beautiful
and grand is the result of improve?
ment iu mechanics. The pendulum,
the main-spring, the barometer, ther?
mometer, printing press, steam en?
gine, sewing machine, telescope-all,
all are the result of mechanic arts.
