Southern R?er???cy--'WI?lte B?ai
? trna aoum.
We are not disposed to iodnlge in
the language of abuse and denuncia?
tion, nor inclined to bring into un?
called-for question mdn's motives.
Relying upon the force of fair argu?
mentation, we wojdd rather oonfute
error than denounce its worshippers.
But there is *f?e point upon which,
as we concorde, it is difficult for one
in these J?nes to think too strongly
or to cypress himself too severely.
Therr are times, and these are of
thfrfu, when stern just ico demands
Knit words of truth should go forth
to wither and blast them who would
degrade a gallant people, and fix
upon the men and women of their
eection a yoke more galling and igno?
minious than ever Goth, Vandal or
Hun sought to impose upon con-,
quered peoples. Our remarks per?
tain to those white men of our sec?
tion, who have united with the radi?
cals of tho North and the freedmen
of the South, to fix upon the South
negro supremacy, or the domination
of an inferior race. There is some
excuse for the course of the colored
people, miserably mistaken as it has
been. Power was offered to them,
and it was natural for them to grasp
it, although it was to turn into a
viper and ultimately to inflict upon
the hand that seized i tr, a fatal sting.
But what shall be said of that white
man who, forgetful of the ties of
blood and of the claims of kindred,
and who, recreant to the God-im?
planted sympathies of race, turns
upon his own section, and hounds o\
tiie pack of wolves that seek to
attack the whites of the South even
in their very homes? These South?
ern recreants may for awhile pursue
.their unhallowed schemes-may seek
to obliterate all the ancient land?
marks of onr laud-may spit upon the
traditions of our past-may trample
upon the graves of our dead, and
seek to degrade the living; but we
tell them, that they cannot quench
the deathless spirit of the proud
Caucasian. The re-action will come
North and will como South. The
laws of God will be vindicated. And
you, Southern radicals and hypo?
critical negro-worshippers, you will
meet with the fate that awaits the
minions of tyranny and the workers
of hate. Ready to lay down your
suple neck and allow the negro to
plant upon it his broad and heavy
foot-ready "to crook the pregnant
hinges of your knee" to tho colored
man, "that thrift may follow fawn?
ing"-you will live to soe yourselves
discarded by the very class upon
whoso backs you ride into powor.
Know, ye deluded mon, that ho who
is not with the Southern whites in
the great issue before tho country, is
against them. To every Southern
man comes the question, "Under
which king, Benzoni? SpcaJc or die!"
Speak, or die in social status, in
good men's opinion, in woman's ap?
proval, in the just verdict of impar?
TUE DEMOCRATIC L'ARTT NORTH.
The Democratic gronnd swell North
gathers forco doy by day. Tho tide
is rising, and in vain do tho Canutes
of tho radical party cry, "Tims far
shalt thou go, and no farther." Tim
Uecrco has gone forth, and we beliovo
tho country will bo saved. Tho
radicals North may crown their long
career of tyrannous exaction und
bold usurpation of power with tho
removal of tho President, but in the
next Presidential election, tho party
will bo swept away by the forco of an
indignant and outraged public senti?
ment. The conservatism of tho land
will do the work, and wo trust it will
bo thoroughly done.

Congress claims that President
Johnson has retarded reconstruction;
impartial mon contend that Con

way of a gennine and last re-union.
On this point, the New York Times
hos the manliness to say:
"The President Van ted tho Union
restored, and State Governments re?
established, substantially under the
State Constitutions which existed
before secession, moditie'd so as to
meet the changes the war had render?
ed necessary; and this he pressed
upon Congress aud the country with
all the zeal, impatience and impru?
dence characteristic of his naturo.
Congress would not consent to re?
storation except on the basis of uni?
versal suffrage. This was its aim
from tho beginning. It resisted
every attempt at reconstruction on
any basis short of that. Failing to
carry that at the outset, Congress
con ten ted itself with staving off re?
construction altogether, until it could
carry negro suffrage. It would not
allow the Soathern States to be rep?
resented in Congress; it would not
allow them to control their own
State Governments, or to make their
own constitution and laws, until thoy
conld compel them to do it on that
basis. It made itself an 'obstacle'
and a very formidable and effective
obstacle-to the 'pacification of the
country,' and the restoration of tho
Union, so long as that point was un?
attained, and during all that timo

parative merits of the two plans.
Whether the President was right in
trying to restore the Union on his
basis, or not-it is certain, at all
events, that he is not chargeable
with having 'opposed restoration,'
from the close of the war. He did
everything in his power to favor it.
He was two years ahead of Congress
in point of time, in trying to bring it
about. Congress nover favored it, or
would permit it, until its favorite
