Tuesiay Horning, August 8. 1871.
Our colored fellow-citizens will be
deeply grieved to bear Mle latest newe
from borne, kindly furnished by the Now,
York* Tribuno. Their higbly-rcsp?cted
and vonorated countryman, King Archo
bong, of Oulabnr, is exceedingly ill and
Iiot expected to long ?urvive. The
cause of his sickness is attributed to
Vpndoriic iuflaenoes, invo'ked by Prince
Adam Arobebong's wifo, the King's sis?
ter-in-law, and a lively dispute, not free
from-occasional battles, is now occurring
between tho friends and enemies of that
estimable lady, in oouaeqSsnco of thc
latter desiring to "drink bot blood."
Upon the old King's.death-an event not
very distant in all probability-a vast
n a mb or of the relatives will bo sacrificed,
followed by a battle royal for the crown.
Oalabar, it is true, is a long-way off, still
it ia well enough to romind the natives
of. that neighborhood, who are now rul?
ing the white people of tho South, bow
affairs are progressing at home.

Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton puts her
faith jointly in .the fourteenth amend?
ment and Ben. Buller. According to
her interpretation, the amo?dment nays
that women are "citizens," and Ben!
says they are-"persons;" and if they ure
both citizens and persons, she thinks
thom entitled to the ballot. Then she
sdmes down on the Republican'party for
not arising to tho height"of tho grout'ar?
gument of natural- and. ', constitutional I
law in its dealings with, the wives and
daughters of the country. liven' tho j
Domooruts, she thinks, are less averse to
woman's rights. "Are not White women
aa good as niggerB?" she sneeringly in?
quires, And as the Republican party al?
lowed: their colored brethren the right
of. suffrage, why are their white sisters
thus- held back? A nigger, maimed,
orippled, and not moro than nine-tenths
of aman at most,.is permitted to exe?
cute tho freeman's will, while a whole
woman is denied! This abe considers a
orying shame, which balls for a Bpecdy
remedy. We think the poi nts she makes
are good, and we commend them for so?
lution to the male lights of Rudi o alia m.
In just so much as the Frenoh spirit
is exceptionally buoyant, so ia the Ger?
man implacable.. Notwithstanding their
complete success in the late war with
France, and the receipt of ah indemnity
of five milliards, still they are not happy.
The Berlin VoU?keilung asserts that it
will not add to - tho. wealth of Germany,
since it comes from their own customer?,
for whom, they work in time of peace;
unt\ that in just so much as France is
made poorer in money so much lees em?
ployment will that country afford to
Germany. Farther, that .the chungo of
relative wealth afforded by the five mil?
liards transferred from France to Ger?
many will raise wages in the latter and
lower them- in- the former country,
thereby destroying Germany's market.
Very interesting, if not very sound,
philosophy this, particularly os it reads
the world a healthful lesson upon the
unprofitableness of wars, even when suc?
cessful. But for all that, it is certainly
the first time we ever heard anybody se?
riously protest against being made rieb,
and, in the point of self-denial and dis?
satisfaction, think the paper quoted, to?
gether with all believers in its dootrine,
entitled to the palm. We have often
heard of people having too much of a
good thing, bat this Is the first practical
illustration of it furnished on an exten?
sive scale. If all Germany shares the
opinion, Kaiser William is certainly the
moAt unfortunate monarch that ever
wore a crown.

und which tbcro is a probability the De?

one vote more than wanted. Texas
would secure, the election to that party
under the circumstances we have ns
8amod. Then there are the two great
States of Pennsylvania und Ohio, whioh,
to all appearances, will be debatable
ground. Of course, either of these,
even without Connecticut, New Jersey
hud Texas, would give moro votes than
necessary to oleot a Democrat. In fact,
with either Obio or Pennsylvania the
Democrats could afford to losy twu'oi
three of tho smaller States set down in
the Demooratio column, as. New Hamp?
shire, Florida and Arkansas, and still
havo votes to spare. But, supposing
New York, wbioh is now Democratic
throughout, should, through late oventi
and mismanagement, be revolutionized
and go for the Republican Providentia
candidate, there would be still Penneyl

Jersey and Conneotiout, even with th

ot tho investigation for tho press, pro?
secuting a scene of bloodshed and out?
lawry in that region that must satiate tho
kcouest and mont rapacious appetite fur

which the Washington Chronicla, of
Monday, parades in a nummary of what
it <!alls "atrocious factH," which, it says,
avis established out of tho mouths of
more than 2U0 witnesses, besides-what
wo believe equally credible-tho lesli-1

that.the object ia to carry tho South at
Hie next Presidential election for tho

white, is one of its priucipal purposes;
that this intimidation is Bought by every
species of violence and bloodshed; "that
noliool-tench era and preachers of the
Methodist Church North seem to be tho
special abhorrence of these Democratic
assassins, and hundreds of school-houses
and Methodist churches have been given

We submit that such "facts" rs these
ure too "atrocious" to b* credited; nt
'atrocious" as their authors, aud, oe
the faco of -thom, improbable and pre?
posterous. It would, perhaps, be neurei
the truth to say that in that half of tlx
StateB of tho Union referred to there ic
less bloodshed and more security of life
and property than there is in the otbet
half. There are, doubtless, exceptional
acts of violence in some localities in r
few Southern Staten, but the oppression,
corruption and acts of violence on thc
other side which have led to them arc
probably quite as numerous and flagrant.
Before giving credence to the all?g?e
sensational pioturings presented by thc
Chronicle, which may bu but a reflex o:
the report to be presented by tho ma
jority of the oommittee as an election
cering document, tho public will demain
lo know not only the names, but charac
ters of the witnesses, and what it is thoj
say. So far as bas transpired, the ru
speotable white witnesses generally denj
the existence at present of any armec
Ku Klux organization. Yet the Chroni
de bas the audacity to assort not ooh
that it exists, but tbat it is officered bi
tbe leading and active Democratic poll
tiaians of the South; that it is solely anc
immediately in the service of that party
that the Democratic party, North ouc
South, are equal sharers in the responsi
bility, whereupon it asks: "Is a part>
worthy of life io this land which seek*
supremacy through snob hell-born mea
Bures?" Whioh inquiry shows the ani
mus of the whole thing-to deprive th?
Democratic party of politioal existence
as if there could be auoh-a thing as th?
toleration of only one political party ii
the country; and, willi inch on objoct
it may only bo wondered-such is th
irrational party spirit of the day-tba
the "facts" reported by the committci
arc not more exaggerated, bloody nm
"atrocious" than they are. There is oei
