Sound Doctrine? Defended py?y**'*??-~
qm?te Means-Shall lt lie jgW?MCc
In DelJnw's Review for May, arti?
cle 1 ie entitled "EXODUS." This
articlo contains the soundest views
that wo havo recently come ?or?se on
the subject of the defects of South?
ern policy in the past, i Tho author
AdEiU?.ih?i.iho views o? our South?
ern statesmen as to tho principles of
government wero correct-that tho
creed of States' rights was correct
that the Southern view bf the powers
of the General Government was
right; but that the South, neverthe?
less, made one great blunder, and it
was this-that thc Southern leaders re?
lied on defending thc rights of ?ieir
section simply by exhibiting their title.
They omitted to throw up around
State rights tho solid muniments of
wealth, numbers and industrial de?
velopment. They failed to maintain
political right by physical power.
And this it was that, the writer
thinks, prodnced the oauses that led to
Southern political and industrial, sub?
jagntiuu. If, now, this bo the loss?b
that the jpast teaches, does not onr
dt?ty id the futuro occur readily to
the mind? Observing , the errors of
the past, let us grasp the means of
our future safety and redemption.
In the future, let us impress upon
the country our political creeds by
works rather than by words. Let
the logic of ads take the place of the
logic of books. "Let practice take the
placo of mere theory. Let us resort
to all the modes of mixed industry.
Let us develop agriculture, commerce
and manufactures. Let us ourselves
work, and no longer roly too entirely
upon the labor of the negro. Let us
recover our rights and control of
things, not by argument and evi?
dence, but by material agencies. Let
.us invite capital, and labor to our sec?
tion. * Lot us secure for ourselves
immigrant number, immigrant
wealth, and immigrant votes. This
is the policy to out the Gordian knot
of our political complications. And
may Heaven grant to the South an
Alexander wise enough and influen?
tial enough to uso tho sword of suoh
The Soothern Delegates to the De?
We have suggested that it is be?
coming in our Southern delegates to
the Democratic Convontion to bo
modest, moderate and judicious in
the advocacy of their claims. But,
at the same time, it does seem to us
that they should seek to exert a legiti?
mate influence iu tho counsels of that
national body, and should, with
dignity and firmness, maintain what
may be regarded conducive to tho
interests of the people and the coun?
try which they represent. Let their
voice be heard there. If that voice
be wise, and moderate, and reasona?
ble in its utterances, it can but do
good to the common cause. Nor
should delegates fail to appreciate
the dignity and strength of their
position. They will roprosont a
white constituency nearly 10,000,
000 strong, and. to bo counted upou
as almost a undJb for tho Democracy.
They will '?ft??d in that Convention
the representatives of proscribed
States, but they will bo nevertheless
the peers of their Northern brothers
of the Domocracy. As tho Washing?
ton Intelligencer says: "An imperilled
people demand that tho Southern
delegates shall do their duty to the
wholo land by taking such part in
public affairs as it is in their power
to assume." As for ourselves, we
feel that the Southern delegates will
do this wisely and judiciously. Gen.
Hampton and Gen. Forrest will bo
there, and they will surprise the
country by showing to it that they
fully appreciate the obligations of
the hour-that they know full well
that "peace hath ber victories no less
renowned than war;" and that among
the victories of peace aro now to be
reckoned that patriotism which lays
prejudice upon tho altar pf country,
and that charity whioh covers with
its mantlo tho bitter memories of the
dead past. ; '

For one to identify himself with
the cause of Divin? justice is a noble
thing. This ennobles bia conduct,
and insures the elements of suooess.
But to identify the cause of Divine
justice with ourselves, this is a di flor?
?n t matter. . Thia leads ouo to disre?
gard: all laws, human and Divine,
that stand in the way of his ambi?
tion. This is the grand error that all
the prominent fanatics of the world
have made. Imagining that they
wielded "the sword of the Lord and
of Gideon," how many of the world's
conquerors have.-trampled on tho
command m ont s of Heaven, and waded
to thrones through seas of human
gore. Truly, this has been one of
the orowned errors of humanity.
And yet this is the grand mistake
that radicalism, in its honest forms,
is now making both North and
Tako the honest Republican
North. He imagines that the great
cause of Divine progress demands
his creed. But let him ask himself
th? question, if he does not "identify
himself with the cause of Divine
justice," and thus prepare to march
on to tho accomplishment of his
aims and ends, without regard to tho
claims of that very justice that ho
erroneously invokes ?
Take the misguided negro mau,
who houestly thinks that Heaven
approves of his insane and futile
dreams, unreasonable and unsub?
stantial though others deem them.
Let him reflect, if he has not identi?
fied himself "with the cause of Divine
justice," instead of identifying the
"cause of Divino justice" with him?
In tho case of both the honest
Republican North, and the honest
negro South, it would bo well for
each to remember the proposition
with which we began this article,
viz: "Tho sword of the Lord and of
Gideon is graven with many a pious
motto, bnt no other weapon has
struck so many foul blows."
SOLOMON'S TEMPLE EXHUMED.
The London Times publishes an inte?
resting letter in regard to the discove?
ries at Jerusalem, from which wo
select tho following:
"Tho colossal foundations of the
temple walls, which are 'stones of
ten cubits and. .-stones of eight cubits, '
laid by Solomon or his successors
on the throne, are now being laid
bare at tho enormous depth of nine?
ty feet or more below the present
surface. The bridge that once span?
ned the ravine between the palace of
Zion and the temple on Moriah is
now proved to have been upwards of
150 feet high. If this be, as it seems,
the ascent to the House of tho Loni
which Solomon showod to the Queen
of Sheba, we oanuot wonder that on
seeing it there was no Bpirit in her.
The pinnaole of the temple on which
the tempter placed the Saviour has
just been uncovered to the base, and
is found still to havo an elevation of
136 feet. The statement of Jo?
sephus is, therefore, no exaggeration.
If any one looked from tho battle?
ment into the valley he would bc
giddy, whilo his sightcouldnot reach
to such an immense depth. Sections
of the ancient wall of Ophel have
been exhumed, showing that as Jo
soph says, it was joined to tho South?
east anglo of tho templo. Aequo
ducte, cisterns, rpck-howu channel*
and passages have also been discovereel
within and around the harem, throw
ing light on the buildings, tho arrange
ments and tho 'services in tho Tom
pie. The great work of a complote
exploration of ancient Jerusalem ii
thus . fairly and auspiciously com
mouced. The opportune visit of the
Sultan and Grand Visier to tbi
country, and- th?' representation!
made to tho latter by . the,- Arqli
Bishop of. York, followed up as the]
have been by tho energy! the . wis
dom, and the tact of Lieut. Warrei
and his admirable staff, have smooth
ed down Moslem prejudice, re
moved local opposition, and thu
brought about opportunities for ex
oavation and exploration, such a
never occurred before; and besides
large numbers of Arab laborers hav
boen trained to the work, and ar
eager to be employed; and the exao
points of successful exploration ar
now well known."
a communication laid before Con
gress by the Paymaster-General o
I the United States, we learn that Gen
Oanby estimates that $127,898.25 wi!
havo to be appropriated to meet th
deficiency in the fund for cxecatin,
the reconstruction laws during th
past year in this Military District
and 824,000 for carrying ou hi

Th? Suffrage Quest lou-A. Democrat
When the Times urged upon tl
Democracy tho policy of beating the
Jacobins to death with thoir own
club, there was a great commotion in
the ? Democratic press. Had the
Southern States then come promptly
forward and said to their negroes,
"We will make suffrage impartial,
disfranchising none who are now
voters/' . no one doubts that the
Southern whites could, and would,
have controlled the blacks.
An expression, by the Democratic
National Con .cation ? in favor I of
and general amnesty, occupied with
a declaration that it is the privilege
of each State to decide for itself who
shall be electors, would not lose the
party in the North a Bingle vote, and
would divide the negro party in tho
South. Suppose the Convention
should pass a resolution not mate?
rially different from the subjoined:
Resolved, That the question of
suffrage is one exclusively within the
jurisdiction of the several States
comprising the American Union;
and that the action of Congress in
attempting its regulation in the
Southern States, through thc agency
of military despotism, is a gross and
criminal . usurpation of power, and
subversive of every principle of our
Qovernment; that citizens who help
to maintain the Government, and
are obedient to its laws, should
possess an equality of civil rights and
political privileges; and this princi?
ple is applicable to all sections of the
Union; and the assertion that it
should be operative in oue section
and inoperative in another, is po?
litical charlatanry and absurdly iu
co asisten ty.
Understanding, of course, that such
a declaration left tho party in each
State free to act on tho question Of suf?
frage as it might deem them proper,
it would not detract au iota from the
Democratic strength in the North,
and would give the party most of the
Southern States. Not only the
prosperity of the latter, but of the
nation, is largely dependent on tho
ability of the whites to control the
blacks. If the white men of the
South cnn tell how they eau obtain
control of their State Governments
without dividing tho negro vote, the
Democracy of the North will be well
pleased to hear the recital. If tho
Southern whites can say how the
things called State Governments in
the South oau be extinguished
with a Jacobin majority in tho Se?
nate, the Democratic National Con?
vention will, probably, be glad to
Tho Jacobin party has presented
us with certain revolting facts, re?
sulting from all that is meanest, and
worst, and most loathsome in legisla?
tion. That they are revolting does
not affect the necessity of meeting
and dealing with them, because they
directly involve the interests of the
party and the country. Shall they
be made instruments to destroy the
rotten party responsible for their
existence?-Chicago Times, Juno 20.
A WIFE POISONED.-Charles Tuck?
er, alias Mason, was lately tried at
Niagara, New York, and sentenced
to be hung iu August next, for
poisoning his wife. About a year
ago, ho procured a polioy for
$5,000 and covering tho lives of him?
self and wife, the survivor to have tho
money in case of the death of either
party. She died in September, after
a short and violent illness, Mason's
conduct, when he went to collect the
insurance money, excited suspioion,
and the body of his wife was disin?
terred, and found to contain poison.
Hence his trial and conviction.
The Nowbern (N. C.) Journal of
Commerce says: "We learn that while
some' little negro boys were swim?
ming in Scott's Creek, near James
City settlement, that an alligator
came along that way and seized upon
oue of them. Larger persons, at?
tracted by his companions' cries for
help, ran down to his assistance; but
boforo they arrived, the body had
boon entirely imten up. This will
probably be a warning to others to
attend Sabbath schools, instead of
going swimming on Sunday after?
A HEDBEW CONVENTION.-On the
19ch of July next, tho Bnai Brith

and transacting such other business
as may be brought before that body.
Thia association is governed by laws
aud ceremonies somewhat similar to
those of Masonry-none but Hebrews
who adhere strictly to tho Hebrew
faith are admitted to this order.

at the plantation of Mr, J, T. K.

George Mollwain, both colored, it
