THK DEMOCRATIC TICKST.
HORATIO SEYMOUR, OF N. Y.
GEU F, P. BLAIR, OF MISSOURI.
Sunday Morning, July 19,1868.
Whnt Doc* ?ho While Man Mea.nl
A good u6?l Los been said of the
readiness of the Southern freedmen
to avail themselves of the opportuni?
ties of education, and one peculiarity
which has elicited comment among
those not accustomed before the war
to know much of them, is their
knowledge of character. A corres?
pondent of the New York Times re?
fers to this trait in one of his letters,
and says that a very intelligent color?
ed man in South Carolina accounted
for it by saying: "We have been
watching wi ii to men all our lives to
find out what they mean." It is a
matt?r of congratulation to the color?
ed raoe, at this time, that they possess
this faculty; and we may add that it
is a matter of hopeful augury to the
country. "To find out what the
white men mean," is more important
to them now than ever. With their
natural faculties of discernment, and
the additional intelligence which
they will, obtain from education, they
will be in a condition to make this
one of the most advantageous studies
of their leisure hours. Nay, they
ought to think of it when they ore at
work, when they are ploughing,
wood-chopping, sowing, reaping;
when they are lying down and when
they ore rising np, this should be the
great problem for their solution
"What does the white man mean?"
As Goon as they begin to read history
a little, they will havo some light on
this subject, for they will there see
that the white man has always been
aggressive, rapacious of land and
power, belligerent and bloody ia his
competitions with his own color;
whilst as to all other colors, he has
uniformly crowded them out of his
way, or enslaved or annihilated them.
No terms at all but through submis?
sion and subordinatiou has ho ever
conceded to Indians of the East or
West, to Africans, or any inferior
race; and, therefore, when the whito
radicals of tho North profess towards
the Africans of the South a policy so
exceptional to all the traditions of
their color, tho freedmen may well
inquire, "What do thoy mean? Is it
possible that they love us so much?
Was the late bloody war fought al?
together for our beuefit? Aro they
really going to give us those forty
acre farms? Is it because they love
ns so much that they give us thc
right to vote and put us on juries?"
All these questions the freedmen,
with increasing education, will one
day be ablo to answer. They may
even now bo wondering why it is that
the men who want to give them,
without preparation, sudden and un?
qualified suffrage, nod a place on
juries, refuse it to their brethren iu
the North, who have long been free
and educated, and whoso numbers
are too small in tho communities
where they livo to bo any cause ol
apprehension. This is a subject
worthy thoir constant meditation,
"What does the whito man mean" bj
this, ought to awaken thoir serious
reflections. The Baltimore Sun verj
correctly assorts, that the moro tho}
reflect, tho moro they will becomt
satisfied that he menus good to him
self, not to them-that ho mean
political power, and that there ii
also tho amiable desire to humiliai
thoir old mastery, by forcing thei
former slaves upon them in tho j ur
box and in suffrage, whilst thoy wi!
not permit the black peoplo of tb
North to vote, or to sit by their sid
in juries. This amazing inconsis
tency will not bo lost upon a pcopl
who have devoted thoir lives to study
ing "what tho white man means,'
and their futuro couduct will b
Tho result of reflection and of in
creasing intelligence will be in th
end to satisfy tho intelligent South
ern freedmen that the whites of th
South are their best friends-for th
excellent reason, if for no other, tho
their interests aro identical. Wo sa,
nothing of tho effect of old associa?
tions and the ancient -inte. j?e of
kindly offices. We . rest ' whole
ease on the mutual depei ; of
the Southern whites and r.
The Now YotV World is riot, by
any means, a fit organ of the Demo?
cracy of the United States. Its
attempts to whittle away tho plat?
form recently laid down at New York,
show it to be at heart an enemy of
the people who made it. We prefer
Brick Pomeroy's rdugh honesty, or
Bennett's down-right and out-spoken
dishonesty, to the World's double
dealing and finesse. If the tone of
the World is tr be taken as an indi?
cation of the spirit of the Northern
Democracy, then it may be set down
aa certain that Grant will be elected.
Its miserable apologies for its own
party's acts, and its endeavors to tor?
ture plain language into false mean?
ings, are unworthy of any paper
professing to be Democratic. The
Bichmond Dispatch declares that a
specimen of tho World's candor may
be found in the fact that it makes
the resolution of the National Con?
vention in favor of taxing Govern?
ment bonds apply to bonds hereafter
to bo issued ! Such tricks aro littlo
short of knavery. The secret of this
apparent duplicity may be thus ex?
plained: General Grant and tho head
man of the World aro in partnership
in a Georgia gold mine. This wo
can vouch for. "A wheel within a

Be it enacted by Hie Senate and House
of Representatives of the United States
of America, in Congress assembled,
That it shall be the duty of the Con?
suls of the United States in foreign
countries, and especially those who
reside in tbe kingdom of Great Bri?
tain and Ireland, the North German
Confederation, the empire of Austria,
and the kingdom of Sweden and
Norway, to disseminate, so far as the
laws of these countries may permit,
under the direction of tho Secretary
of State, such practical information
relative to the several States and
Territories of the United States, as
shall tend to induce persons of capi?
tal, industry or skill to emigrate to
the said States and Territories; and
the said Consuls shall also furnish to
all such persons information aa to the
cost of travel to and in said States
and Territories, tho most advantage?
ous routes of travel thereto, the
character of the soil and productions,
and the rates of wages in tho differ?
ent parts of the United States, the
provisions and requirements of the
pre-emption and homestead laws of
tho United States, and generally all
suoh information as may serve to en?
courage, direct and protect emigra?
tion to the United States.
SEC. 2. And be it further enacted.
That for the services required of
them pursuant to this Act, tho Con?
suls aforesaid shall be allowed a com?
pensation, not exceeding ten per
centum of the amount of salary now
allowed them by law. They shall,
also, bo allowed such reasonable con?
tingent expenses as may be necessary
for tho discharge of their duties un?
der thia Aot, tho accounts therefor
being subject to tho approval of the
Secretary of State, to whom the said
Consuls shall annually report their
proceedings under this Act, and said
reports shall be communicated to
Congress within six weeks after tho
regular meeting of that body in De?
cember of eaoh year.
SEC. 2. And be il further enacted,
That any State or Territory shall
have the right to forward to said
Consuls, through tho Secretary of
State, for distribution, such books,
pamphlets, or other documents as
may bo published at tho expenso of
said State or Territory, for the en?
couragement of emigration.
SEC. 4. And be il further enacted,
That the said Consuls may, under
tho direction and subject to tho ap?
proval of tho Secretary of State,

or lines of railroad or steam vessels,

ment of the United States.
SEC. 5. And be it further enacted.
That the said Consuls shall exposo,
iu their respective offices, such maps
and books relative to different regions

That the sum of $10,000 bc, and tho

auy money in the Treasury not other?
wise appropriated, to carry into effect
tho provisions of this Act.
Hampton Court, on tho Thames,
fifteen miles South-west from Lon?
don, is a refuge for reduced members
of tho English gentry, who aro as?
signed apartments there through thc
charity of the Qucon. The inmates
aro very poor and very proud, and,
heretofore, have takeu advantage of
tho privilege of living in a quasi
royal palaco not to pay their debts,
unless it suits their convenience.
But these exemptions aro now abo?
lished, for the English Court of Ex?
chequer has decided, recently, that
Hampton Court ia not now a royal
residonco, and that a sheriff has a
right to exeouto a writ therein.
Tho force of tho Freedmen's Bu?
reau, in all of tho States whoro it is
in operation, will shortly bo greatly
reduced, and tho expenses of the
bureau materially lessened. Orders
have already been issued to rcduco
tho expenses in Kentucky, and dis?
miss a portion of tho force on tho
16th instant, so that tho bureau can
bo worked with about one-half of tho
expense of last year. It is intended
to place tho other States on tho sarao
footing in tho course of a few weeks.
CALLICOTT STILT, IN OFFICE.-Tho
New York World says: "Callicott,
who is serving out his sentenco in tho
Albany Penitentiary, is still Collector
in tho Third District, Tho President
has dono all in his power to rcmovo
him; but, under the tenure-of-offico
bill, the Senate must concur in the
suspension, or it amounts to noth?
ing. What possible object has tho
Senate in retaining a radioal male?
factor, now in prison, in an impor?

Electioneering Dodges. '
"Mai. Gen. Howard has formally
ordered the discontinuation of the
Freedman'H Bureau in South Caroli?
na, and will, aa speedily as possible,
close the Bureau's business in other
States "-New York Tribune.
This sort of deception, Bays the
National Intelligencer, of the 16th
instant, will hardly mislead even tho
unwary. The trick has been repeat?
ed too often to have the least merit
of novelty, and ?3 now regarded as
only a barefaced attempt to impose
on the public by willful misrepresen?
tation. The Freedmen's Bureau has
just been extended another year by
I the influence of Gen. Howard, who
first pretended to recommend its
abolition. That fact is tho best
answer to tho falso statement of the
Tribune, and reveals the real senti?
ment of the head of this corrupt
political maobine, who has worked it
only for selfish and party purposes.
There is not the remotest intention
of closing the Bureau now, and
never has been. The best proof of
it is tho law recently passed by au
undivided radical vote in both
Houses of Congress. It forms an
essential element of their programme
I in the Presidential campaign, and
was renewed for that object express?
ly. The proof is to bo found in the
Senate bill proposed by Mr. Howard,
by whioh tho President is deprived
of all supervising authority, and thc
present Commissioner, General How?
ard, is rendered independent of the
army regulations, and of proper ac?
countability, until tho 1st of Januarj
next, thus covering the Presidential
election. That proposition reveals
the plot; while another, introduced
by Mr. Pomeroy as a sequel, pro?
poses to transfer tho Indian Burear
to tho Freedmen's Bureau, and thu;
fasten it permanently on tho Govern
ment. The Tribune is well awaro o
these facts, and yet has coucealec
them for party effect.
Radicalism has taken a sudden nut
violent spasm of reform since thc
New York Convention. But this pre
tended zeal comes rather late in tin
day, and exposes its own motive
Nearly eight months have beei
squandered in factious agitation an(
in a desperate effort to get possessio]
of the Executive office. All tb
great material iuterests havo beei
treated with thc utmost neglect aoi
contempt by tho dominant party ii
Congress. Precious time and moue,
have been wantonly wasted in perse
cuting tho President, and in attempt
to rule or min. And now, at th
eleventh honr, whon all is confusion
when everybody is worn down wit
fatigue, the session about closing
and wheu tho New York Conveutio
has framed its indictment, the ver;
men who have all along treated wit
scorn the serious public busines:
rush forward with political scheme
for reducing tho army, for n highc
protective tariff, and for other pm
posos, all intended to counteract th
effect of their past criminal omi:
8?ons, aud to propitiate a peop]
whom they have outraged by neglec
extravagance and unparalleled co:
rapt ion. Theso electioneering expi
dients have had their day, and ca
succeed no longer. The eyes of tl:
country are at length opened to tl
iniquities which havo been practice?
and tho mischief which the rule <
radicalism has produced. Profe
:-uun.s have no value from such
source, becnuso tho most solom
promises have been made only to I
violated. This affected repentance
like that of tho hardened crimin
who goes to tho gallows protestit

that his guilt may be doubted, ai

COMMUNICATION FBOM SECRETARY
SEWARD IN RELATION TO THE ELATES
THAT HAVE RATIFIED THE CONSTITU?
TIONAL AMENDMENT.-The President
sent a message to the Senate enclos?
ing, among other papers, the follow?
ing letter from the Secretary of
"To TOE PRESIDENT: The Seoretary
of State having received a resolution
of the Senate, on the 9th instant,
requesting him to Communicate to
that body, without delay, a list of
tho States of the Union whose Legis?
latures had ratified the fourteenth
f article of amendment of the Consti?
tution of tho United States, with
copies of all tho resolutions of rati?
fication in his office, and to commu?
nicate to that body all resolutions of
ratification of said amendment which
he may hereafter receive, as soon ns
ho shall receive the samo respectively,
has tho honor to report to the Presi?
dent that official notice has boen re?
ceived at this Department of the
ratification of tho amendment refer?
red to by tho Legislatures of the fol?
lowing States, to wit: Connecticut,

Vermont, West Virginia, Kansas,
Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois,
Minnesota, New York, Wisconsin,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Michi?
gan, Nevndn, Now Hampshire, Mas?
sachusetts, Nebraska, Maine and
Iowa. Besides these Acts of ratifica?
tion, notices and certificates have
also been received by the Secretary
of State that tho same proposed
amendment has boen ratified by tho
Legislatures of tho States respective?
ly of Arkansas, Florida and North
Carolina, which notices and certifi?
cates last mentioned were received
from thc newly constructed and
established authorities assuming to
bo and acting aa the Legislatures and
Governors of the said States of
Arkansas, Florida and North Caroli?
na. These Acts of ratification are
for this reason stated in this report
separately and distinctly, and, for
the more accurate information of
Congress, a copy of all the Acts and
resolutions of ratification of all said
Legislatures is herewith subjoined,
together with a copy, also, of certain
resolutions- of tho Legislatures of
Ohio and Now Jersey, which purport
to rescind the resolutions of ratifica?
tion of said amendment, which had
previously been adopted by tho Le?
gislatures of thoso two States re?
spectively, and to withdraw their
consent to the same. Respectfully
"WILLIAM H. SEWARD."
THE TH IUD PAUTY MOVEMENT NOT
ENCOURAGED-POSITION OF SENATOR
DOOLITTLE.-The effort to organize a
third party by tho conservative Re?
publicans: dissatisfied with the nomi?
nees of the New York Convention, is
not destined to meet with encourage?
ment from loading gentlomen of that
class who have ably sustained Presi?
dent Johnson in his strife against
radicalism. In substantiation of this
assumption, a letter will appear from
Senator Doolittle, in response to O.
H. Ostrander and forty-eight conser?
vativo Republicans, of Danville, Pa.,
who express a "sense of disappoint?
ment and regrot that no bettor names
had been offered by tho Democratic
party, to lead the conservative and
patriotic masses of tho people to vic?
tory, and tho radical Republican
party to merited defeat;" and con?
fidence that victory would have been
certain had Senator Doolittle's name
been placed at the hoad of the ticket.
The Senator's reply ip bold and em?
phatic against tho organization of a
third party, which ho does not re?
gard as wise, or calculated to work
any practical good to tho causo. He
states, in dotail, charges of wrong
and outrage committed by the radi?
cal party, refers to tho impeachment
of tho President, and the effort, ev?m
by threats of assassination, to force
tho Senate to convict him, in order
to placo in tho oxecutivo chair ono
who would have used all its power
against tho Constitution; against
plighted faith; against raco and kin?
dred, and against civilization. He does
not say that tho nominations are tho
best that could have been made for
the purposo of restoring tho Union
and tho Constitution and tho rights
of the States; but ho affirms that
thoso ends can bo attained, if tho
various elements in hostility to radi?
calism can bo carried to the support
of Mr. Seymour. Ho ossumea that
to accomplish this is a paramount
duty, and commits himself to it with
his wholo heart and energy, conclud?
ing in theso words: "Let us unite for
victory; let us have peace-a peace
which comes not from a violated
Constitution and tho despotism of
tho sword, but tho peace which comes
from a restored Union and tho supre?
macy of constitutional law, by whioh
alone liberty is secured."

LEOTURB OP COLONEL THOMAS.
Col. J. P. Thomas, of the city of
Columbia, delivered a lecture, lost
Tuesday evening, before the Literary
Club of Greenville, to a largo assem?
bly of accom?lished gentlemen and
ladies, on "T&e Past and Future of
South Carolina." It was replete in
thought, rich in lore, pearl upon
pearl, gem linked in gem, rare and
highly attractive. It foreshadowed a
glorious future of honor and renown
to the speaker. AU who heard it,
speak of it as a decided success.
During its delivery, fancy's eye
and memory arrayed the past. Caro?
lina, in her better days, stood before
tho mind's eye. Rock, river, vo?
lumed cataract, forest, mountain
tufted hills, plains beneath, living
valleys, fields of rustling corn and
cotton, vegetated fwith leaf, bloom
and boll-with flocks and herds, cot?
tage and stately mansion-a happy,
industrious, thriving population-a
plenteous board, wealth and gran?
deur presented themselves in one
grand panoramic scene; her noble
dead-Gregg, Bee, Johnson, Mar?
shall, Pettigrew, Ramsay, Keitt, Ed?
wards, and their brave comrades in
arms; Calhoun, McDuffie, Cheves,
Lowndes, Hayne, Butler, and hosts
of their grand compoers, men of
might, whom tho nations honored
swaying listening Senates, with the
power of genius and tho blaze of
eloquence, stood life-liko in the pic?
ture. Carolina again loomed up as
in ancient days, a commonwealth
of god-liko men. But, Carolina,
how changed art thou now! thy sun
has set-thy glorious day is o'er-the
night of ignorance shrouds theo with
its dark, murky pnll, and thy sub?
limo record i<? underneath thc ty ian l's
heel. Tho legislative halls, Suprenm
Court room, templo and stately man?
sions, commingle in common dust
with thy heroio dead. Thy art, glory
and freedom have vanished. Dingy
I denizens-reared in dirt, unwashed,
and of low degree-a famished brood
seized upon thy vitals as soon as tho
cannon's smoko was cleared away and
war's clarion was hushed. And now
they riot in thy deserted halls and
upon thy ruined splendor. Our
heart sinks chilled within us when
we contemplate this land-once the
homo of god-like men, whose heroic
dust is now insulted by Gotha and
A brighter period may dawn upon
us, after awhile, but many a year will
have flor n away beforo our beloved
State will attain to her former pros?
perity and renown. Nevertheless, it
becomes our people to be up and
doing, vith bnsy hands and bravo
hearts, and with an humble trust in
the God of nations, wc will eventual?
ly bo delivered from penury and
bondage.*- Greenville Enterprise.
