Friday Morning, May 15, 1B68.
Weare pleased to notice t,hat De?
mocratic clubs aro multiplying all
over the Sta?te, bdt especially in the
upper Districts. Our private advices
nodioato much enthusiasm, and wo
are gratified to add that the colored
jspoplo are abandoning radicalism to
mito their fortunes with those whose
interests are identical with their own
and who are their best and fastest
fitiends. They are beginning to fear,
and that wisely, too, that they may,
Ia. following the suggestions of their
radical leaders, lose the bone whilst
grasping at the shadow. Let us'
anggest to tho colored people this:
iitot those of them who live South
should show themselves Southern.
And. inasmuch as tho Democratic
Berty is tho Southern man's party,
let them rally uro und this organiza?
tion. Let them cut themselves off
2nom the carpet-bag gentry, and de?
fend upon the true men of the
W>c Journal of Commerce and the
Question of Negro .Stiffi-ayc-The
As wo have before remarked, tho
?lew York Journal of Commerce is one
-at the ablest, wisest, and purest
journals in thc country. It seeks
th? truth, and its conservative utter
ataees command the respect of the
-whole country. We have been im?
pressed with the wise sentiments it
lusa expressed on the subject of negro
zmffrage. Uupon assuming charge of
tibe political department of the Pho.
rms, we not only took position in
Ifcvor of qualified negro suffrage, as
iteing both right and expedient, but
wc have urged .upon the National
Stemocratic party of the country the
adoption of t?jis principle, as one that
TK/uld insure it success in the next
iPresiduutial canvass. This position
mu took in advance of any journal or
8nbl?c mau, so far as wc know. We
ave pleased to find so influential a
gaper as the Journal of Commerce
taking our view of this great matter.
Scud what it says-tho article is
Bather long, but let the reader, white
ar black, peruse it, and ii the colored
naan cannot read, let him get a friend
to read it for him:
"lu commenting a few weeks ago
apon an appeal by the Democrats to
Sho conservatives, who ore inde?
pendent of party relations for their
sspport in tho coming Presidential
fflJection, we took tho ground that the
flatform offored was entirely too
auurrow to attract the invited help,
?ul that it must be enlarged in
certain important particulars, before
it will be sufficient to support a
a?otoriouB organization from the ele?
ments proposed. We have since
discussed at greater length a few of
the suRRcssion? then briefly ???de,
ami we now propose to give some
Masons for the adoption of an affirma?
tive policy on the question of negro
"It will bo remembered by our
laaders, that we proposed, as apart of
tie creed, the extension to the black race,
through State legislation, of the privilege
cf suffrage, under certain restrictions as
Jo ciOier or both of the qualifications of
ytrt'perly and education. This has
keen met by some of the more candid
ai tho Democratic papers with the
.^ncstion, 'Why go beyond the sim?
ple proposition-No submission by
?ko white race lo negro rule?' To this
nome have added, 'Aid us in rester
ing tbs authority of the Constitution
a si >i til th i la? i, mm? jip ??? M
to deal kindly with the negro when
we have the power.' But the subject
carnot be shirked in this may, and

"fe hat? no! heMtatjfcn m sayfhg,
fradfcy, that betxeeet? instant unqmii*
fied negro suffrage and entire denial to
the roos of this privilege, we would
?-cally prefer the latter. It would bo
r more humane to the blacks them?
selves. Wo do not object to un re?
stricted suffrage without regard to
color, because we have any fears that
tho Caucasian, nnd set himself up as
paramount in the land. Bitt we do
i fear that indieoriminate negro voting,
especially in localities where the
b?icbs r.r? numerous, and more or
loss unfittod to appreciate the nature
of the privilege, will lead by its,
inevitable fruits to a decided re-ac?
tion in publio sentiment, and pro?
voke a colUaiojQ.betwpen the races?
id which the inferior would greatly
suffer,' if not be entirely crushed.
Tho future of the negro is dark
enough at the bent, and will beso
without this added risk. The ballot,
as wo have herotoforo'shown in an
argument no one' has attempted tn
answer, so f.ir from being a protec?
tion to him, as many superficial ob?
servers haye claimed, will bring him.
into fresh perils. By holding out
'the'suffrage as an inducement to the
acquisition of proper ty and educa?
tion, somo of those dangers may be
avoided, and with such restrictions
all unprejudiced persons would be
satisfied to eco tho experiment fairly
-r'!,."And this brings us to'the'ques
tion which many will ask, 'Why uot
make the same rule for both whites
and blacks, and let the suffrage bo
impartial,'applying tho same limits
without restriction as to color?' If
the privilege were now for the first
time to be conferred, wo should be
very glad to aid in establishing such
limits as would prevent its exercise
by the ignorant and improvident of
any color; where this has been con?
ceded it is difficult to recall it now;,
but we Would,go no further in that
direction. Besides, the two races do
not stand upon the same footing,
and never will, while they dwell toge?
ther with separate blood. We may
admit all the reasons urged why this
Should not be so, but this will not
.chango tho fact, which exists in spite*
of the argument The attempt to force
the mass of ignorant, improvident blacks
into a position of perfect pol iii a di
equality with the. governing whites, willi
not only fail in itself, bul will increase
the popular prejudice against the whole
race, and rendel' ii nearly tf not quite
impossible, to do anything to improve
their social condition.
"It is true that this is matter for
State, rather than national legisla?
tion; butonc party is forcing it into
the canvass, and a simple opposition
to its one idea of universal social and
political equality for the uegi u, is not
enough to satisfy those conservatives
who have ever been the truest friends
of the black man in all stages of the
controversy. We have already stated
that between doing all that radical?
ism asks for the black man and
denying it all, we would choose the
latter, even out of kindness to him,
if for no other reason; but we believe
that there ts a middle ground thal would
meet the views of the great body of the
American people. The sooner this is
conceded and established, the better
will it be for all concerned."
Mn. EDITOR: On Saturday last,
tho Otb instant, at the request of the
citizens of the neighborhood, Mr. S.
E. Caugbman organized a Democra?
tic Club, at the Long Branch School?
house, about four miles North-east
of Lexington village. After on ad?
dress by Mr. Caughinan, who spoke
iu his usual forcible style for about
an hour, aud who was particularly
severo on the enormity of several of
the articles in the Constitution, lately
adopted by the mongrels of this
State, a Constitution was presented
and adopted, and the club duly or?
ganized. The club is known as the
Long Branch D?mocratie Club. The
officers are-John Rall, President;
Daniel Kleckley, Vice-president; and
W. F. Caugbman, Secretary.
Tho standard of Democracy is up?
ward and onward, and wo think we
can venture the prediction, that the
days of mongrelism in Lexington
District will soon be numbered.

Eufflish opinions, that these offences
were hot such as shoril<?hs.vs put L???

The whole charge against Presi?
dent Johnson amounts to little more
than this, that ho ' placed'himself in
opposition to Congress. The Execu?
tive and the Legislature have been
for some timo at'variance; but that is
a misfortune Which ' might occur at
any time. The Constitution gave
powers to Congress and powers .to
the President; and it' was always
possible that these authorities might
differ in opinion. No doubt such an
antagonism might be carried by a
President to such a point, and be
supported by such measures as would
justify an impeachment, but it seema
impossible to regard in sud) a light
as this any of the proceedings ascrib?
ed to Mr. Johnson.. That he did no)
sympathize with the views of Con?
gress is, of oourso, notorious, but iu
America opinions are surely free
that he spoke without much respect

in America speech is very freo in

might not have been said of Parlia

and certainly members of Congresi
have spoken as hardly of Andrev
Johnson, as ever he spoke of them.
There was a political feud betweei

The impeachment of ,the Chie
Magistrate of a nation, is an act o
extreme gravity, to 'be justified bbl;
by overpowering considerations o

anything resembling such justifica

to us ouly an unmeasured expressioi
of party feeling. A Republican Con
