Tlio Radical majority will, perhaps,
not vary two thousand cither way from
these figures. In other words, it Is less
than one pr ceBt. of tho aggregate vote
cast. ' '
It is argued that in order to found a
hope for the election of Seymour and
Ulair, it was incumbent on the Demo
cracy to have carried these States by de
cisive majorities. V cannot see it in
that light. On the other hand, to make
the Radicals confident of the election of
Grant, it was necessary that they should
have hold their own. This they did not
do by from Jo to 100,000 votes. The
leaders feel that they have lost. They
recognize the necessity of extraordinary
exertion to save themselves in Novem
ber. They know that Grant is not
stronger than the lcal candidates for
State officers and Congressmen, and tha't
he cannot poll tha average vote cast for
the candidates of his party on Tuesday
Their huzza of victory are faint and hol
low. Thev cannot disguise the chagrin
and apprehension they feel in the Frosi
Under this statu of the case, how
fatuous and foolish was the proposition to
change candilaies on the part of the
recognized exponent of the Democracy
amonjthcNcw Ydrk press. It is im
possib'e to coacoiro that any one should
have supposed for a moment, than that '
such a movement would not instantly and
utterly demoralize the Democratic organi
zation. Its prompt repudiation, and tho
enthusiastic spirit displayed by the
people, lmwevcr, dispose of it. One timid,
counsellor has n tt spread tho contagion of
his fear, and notwithstanding the Radical
press will u it. wo an- satisfied the.
World's article will do no damage.
THE NATIO.VA1. BA.MiS AS A
One of thfl most powerful influences
that we lave to contend with in the pres
ent contest is the National Bank interest.
Tho projectors of this money making
fichorue feel that if tho Democrats shonld
get control of the government, the law
under which they aro literally coining
money would be repealed, and brace the
desperation with which they fight for
snpremacy. The New England Slates,
through some species of favoritism, enjoy
a monopoly of the benefit arising from
the National BanlTsystcm. This will ex
plain why those States cnt a million of
dollars to Pennsylvania to aid in carrying
that'tatc for the Republicans. They
doubtless also contributed a large portion
of the money usrd (or c-lectioneeringptir-poses
in Ohio and Indiana. The great
mass of tho people, especially of the
South, liavc but little idea what a power
in the land these National Ranks are, for
the reason that thoy have given tho sub
ject but littlo thought. A correspondent
of the Chicago 'Times lias shown why
the Batiesal Rank interest is so itowerftd
in thocontrst. From his article we nuote
as follows :
"It seems that the Democratic papers
of Uje country, while closely and fully
discussing other branches of the great
financial question, are now almost as still
as death abont the monstrous swindle
known as the National Bankingsystem. I
have recently mide some calculations, a
la Atkinson, a- to ihc amount of money
that can bo made oat f it by thc-bankcrs.
I itave invested an imaginary capital ol
$300,000 of greenbacks in a-20 bonds. )
deposit those bonds in tho Treasury Ds
pflrtment, organize my bank,and am
furnished with an-issue of ?i70,y0l) in
other 5-20 bond, anddep. tt them in like
manner, and draw an i-wuo of $213,000
of national currency. 1 again with that
amount buy other bonds, and deposit tho
same in like manner as the first, ami
diaw an issue of $21i,700 of national
cniTtincy. And so on until 1 havo $50,000
in national currency unt lo operate my
bank with, hewis the deposits of custo
mors. And, havinj; only invested J?:0U,-
O0O of greenbacks, 1 am yet the owner oi
S2511.-12:t of Vnited State-. 5-20 bonds,
nd draw an animal interest in gold of
gl&MiCTi 3S: and in greenbacks, r.i
si -lo. it would i.e S2i::,tai .1:1. Ke
member. I have only $300,000 of
actual capital invested, and that in
rreeubacks: and 1 draw an annual
luterest on that investment ol nearly
i211,O0tl. 1 might still farther continao
tho cslrtilation, until 1 hail only $5000
left ; and then I would draw an annual
intrt on my S300.000 capital of SiMi,
11U. That i, nearly ose Husimr.P rtn
cknt. on the capital invested."
Is it wonderful that the nien who are
reaping so large a harvest from their in
vestment, are fighting desperately to re-
tain in power a party that i .pledged to
sustain those banks V New liiigland
would Use immensely by the repeal of
the National Banking law, for her capi
talists could invest their money in noth
mc that would yield so large a per cent.

THAT SHOULD UK UKMi:iIKl.
- A white man named Perkins, who had
served as a' soldier in tho Federal army,
was hung at Noifolk, Ya., on the Olh
inst, for having committed a rape upon a
white woman. Tho New York JZcpress
makes this comment on the affair :
"lie was associated in the horrible out
rage with a negro named Benjamin Jcf
'ferson. They were both tried and con
victed, and sentenced to be hanged to
gether. At tho last moment Go.crnor
Wells commutes tho punishment of the
negro to imprisonment for life, and leaves
the white dastard to swing. There was
not an iota of difference m thp guilt of
the two wretches. Tho evidence was as
conclusive against the one as the other.
No paliating circumstance has come to
light in favor of tho blackest scoundrel
ul tho twain. Yet he is saved to possi
bly do further damage to society, and his
companion, being of the dispiscd Caucas
sian race, will bo strangled ; is likely a
dead man at the time these lines will
meet the readct's eye. We have no con
clusion lo reach but that Jefferson was
saved so cly and wholly because he is a
There are very strong grounds for the
suspicion which the Exjircss entertains.
The Congressional district in which this
outrage was committed is said lo con
tain a majority of about seven Ihousanu
negro voters, and it is nut tho policy of
the carpet-bag Governor of Virginia to
offend those men who have it in their
power to make or unmake members of
Congress. So, for the sake of securing
office ami plundcr'to the Radical carpet
baggers, negroes arc to be encouraged in
outraging and murdering white women,
crimes which hare been one of the most
terrible results of '-'reconstruction. It
is a noticablc feature in the administra
tion of tho laws in the Southern States
that Radical officials exhibit this favorit
ism for the black race. We see evidences
of it hero in our midst. IIow often does
it happen that white men, and white wo
men too, are arrested upon, the most
frivolous charges and fined, whero if the
charges had been mado by a white man
or woman, they would probably kave not
been entertained. There is no redress
for this dragging of worthy citizens be
fore tho courts without just cause, and
the outrage is therefore quietly submitted
to. Thero appears to be a feeling on tho
part of Radical officers charged with tho
execution and administration of the law,
Uiatto retain power they must favor tho
negroes, and tho latter foel that this is so,
and arc thus encouraged in annoying white
people against whom they may entertain
ill-feeling. This is doing much to dis
rupt the relations which should exist be
tween tho white and black races. Tho
negro should bo protested in his lights,
but ho should not be encouraged to annoy
white men and women by having them
arrested upon prctcxts-too frivolous to be
entertained by a magistrate.
A LIVE l.SMJll.
The adroit tactics of tho Radical lead
era in trying to make this Presidential
contest a duplicato of that of lSGi,
has obscured from tho public view,
to a great extent, one of the most im
portant questions tho public debt, and
how it is to be managed. Tho issue,
with its consequences is a hearth-stone
matter. It comes, in tliodrcadlul thape
of the tax gatherer, to every man. Thero
k a right and a wrong to it, and no other
question, howevur pressing, should bo
permitted to overslaugh iL If Ihc fund
ing bill of Sherman, and other bondliold
ing views are permitted to become laws,
there Is no hope for relief.
The following article from the Chicago
Tinui is pertinent :
Among the "living questions of the
present,'" whirh the people are not very
likely to lnso sight of in tho pending
Presidi ntial contest, is tho practical ques
tion of paying tho pub ic debt in lawful
It is entirely snphomorical to argue, as
some Radical politicians do, that the bonds
must bo paid in gold, because such was
tho intention of tho parties in making tho
contract. It is a familiar rule of law that
contracts must bo interpreted in the light
of tho intention of tho parlies when the
contract was entered into. How is that
intention to bo ascertained ? It is anoth
er familiar rule of law that the intention
mutt In inferred from tlio reason of the
ronti act itself. It is only when the rea
son of the contract fails to reveal tho in
tention of tho parties making it that the
equity courts invite collateral.
In tho matter of tho contract between
the American people and their creditors,
the bondholders, tho contract itself ie

The subjoined article discusses a-mat-ter,
and presents an array of authentic
ficts in regqrd.lo it, which should arrest
theattontion of tho Southern people. . .
That cotton was tho king of commerce,
arid that the Southern States were tho
capital of its realm, was for years a cause
of envious discontent to the Northern
section. The "slavo power" was chiefly
odious, because it was intimately con
nected with the culture of tho plant which
made the ' South commercially the su
perior. It was tho just prido of tho
Southern people, that, though in arts and
manufactures thoy wero dependent,, yet
the great staple mado the North and Eu
rope dependent and tributary lo them.
The assertion of this superiority rankled
in the Northern breast. It may be pro
tested that this unworfliy anddog-inthc-mangerish
sentiment did not exist, but it
is true nevertheless. The discrowning of
King Cotton in the South was an object
of the war, and it was accomplished. Tho
astute Northern leaders who used the.
fanatcal pseudo-philanthropy of that
section to foment tho sectional hato which
led to the war, . have deliberately and
willfully sacrificed the pre-eminence of the
South as the great cotton-producing region
of the world, on tho, altar of jealousy and
malevolence. In the ho, e to clutch this
prize for themselves, they did not scruple,
to run the plowshare of war through its
fields. In doing so, they have to a great
degree blasted them, and stimulated tho
necessities of tho world to look for other
fields. This account of the Egyptian
production alio ws what a rival that re
ckon has become in tho last six years. Tho
English government is fostering by every
means the culture of cotton in India, and
building railroads from the seaports t
tho fields. America, instead of furnish
ing five-sixths of the amount annually
consumed ten years ago, now yields less
than onc-foitrth. And, even after this
factbecanio apparent, the purblind haters
of the South sought still further to em
barrass its production by an exorbitant
export tax. It was only self-interest
that compelled its release from this bur
den, at tho hands of a Congress repre
sentative of ths paltry and grovelling
The ruin of the cotton interests is one
of the darkest features of the systematic
persecution with which- the South has
been fo relentlessly pursued, and will
excite in the minds of the men of after
times who shall dispassionately read it,
wonder at tho short-sightedness and
contempt for tho despicable selfishness
which brought it about.
But the cotton of the South
ern States will spring again. Un
der a disorganized labor sj'Stcin it
languishes, and in the meanwhile rivals,
more or less formidable, have arisen. Let
the owners of the cotton soil, however,
bide their time in courageous self-rcli
ance, and they will rccrown their king and
rule again lord of tho ascendant in Amci i
can commerce. We commend the sugges
tions of this article to their careful read
ing, and tell them to plant brcadstulfs
for homo consumption, and cotton for cx
port ami manufacture in their own mills.
The day is coming when cotton will
guarantee them an ir.depcnJencc surer
and moro munificent than they ever en
joyed in tho most pmperous former
The cable announcement of a heavy
yield of cotton in Egypt is of great im
portance to tho people of the Southern
States and to ourcountry generally.
Cotton has long been tho most impor
tant item of commerce among nations.
This country held an uninterrupted
monopoly of the article up to thp com
mencement of the war. A large portion
af England's commercial greatness grew
out of and depends upon it. To give
employment to her 3000 mills, and 33,
000,000 spindles, and I.000.0U0 opera
tives, sho has looked to our Sea Island
and (!ulf State plantations, in a single
year she actually paid out S112.000.000
for a supply. These fats sufficiently
indicato the importance of our jKvsscssing
the 010001.013' of supply, and doing all i;i
our power to regain the ground w lost
by tho war. That lesujt is certainly not
lo be reached by misleading our cotton
planters as to their real situation. To
tell llicni that thero is. nothing to fear
from Egypt is a fallacy. There is much
to fear ; but it is certain that, under a
stable political government, perseverance
and well-directed labor will eventually
place the South first again on the list of
suppliers, and make cultivation of the
staple in Egypt toounprolitablotohe con
tinued. There is a point beyond which
it becomes more profitable for .thai
country toser.d English breadstuffsllian
rntton. It is to that point our plant
ers must force this rival. Were it. not
for the fact that sho cannot devote be
yond a given acreage lo cotton without
being compelled o import the cereals for
home consumption, her rivalry would be
eminently threatening. Tho commercial
returns of the world's- markets tell us
how prosperously her cotton interest lias
thriven muco 1801. There is no wisdom
in affecting contempt for tho staple sho
produces: nothing to be gained bj- assur
ing our planters that our own staplo is so
greatly superior that 110 other growth can
stand hasido it in tho markets. Let us
not disguise the fart that- the Egyptian
staple is a good 0110 : that it commands a
good price; that it is ail bought ; and
that it has been thought worth while to
introduce Egyptian seed 0:1 our own
plantations for trial. It has been demon

more sensible for' tho South to set abdiit
recovering hqr lost cotton status in all
earnestness, and with a sincerity that
shows her appreciation of the true char
acter of the situation, than for her to rely
upon past .power for present protection.
Affairs havo chanced, and she has expe
rienced crushing -discouragements, iter
labor system has been' totally revolution
ized ; even worse, it has been destroyed,
and sho has been forced to deviso a now
one. In the midst of her prostration,
Congress, in defiance of all the principles
of political 'iconomy, and with titter dis
regard for tno national good, levied a tax
unon the staple that would have been a
death-blow to its cultivation had it been
much longer retained. These drawbacks
must be overcome. It can scarcely
bo believed tltat this section is un
worthily yielding to them, and yet that
would seem to be tho tact lrom tno ic-
porls constantly received here that the
cotton area is more and more being given
over to wheat and corn. Tho South can
not reasonably expect to recover hersolf
at once. Restoration must nccossanly bo
gradual ; and during its progress peri
odical and temporary relapses must bo
lnnkeil for. The ultimate result cannot
bo doubted. .Wo aro bound lo be master
of -the cotton market if we use our ad-
vantaso judiciously.- To recover
cround at a sincle stroke we must throw
a full crop into themarket ; nothing less
will suffice. The planters of tho South
must bend all their energies to olfect this.
If they oxert themselves they will win,
if not thoy will lose. The prize is cur
tainly worth the effort. The losses on a
short crop one year will bo compeared
by the gains on a full crop tho next one.
Above all, it should bo remembered that
the reign of Radicalism will not last for
ever, and that there is a period coming
when we are to produce an annual crop of
5,000,000 bales, to manufacture it for our
selves, and thon convey the fabrics to the
great markets of the world by American
moans of transportation. England may
set that down as a fixed fact. Let the
fcouth keep her eyes upon it, and stead
fastly labor on in tho fulfillment of her
sure and prosperous destiny.
The Legisiatu.ro of Nebraska passed a
law at its last session, disfranchising sol
diers and officers of tho Confederate
army. Judge Lake, of that State, has
recently delivered an opinion that Regis
ters have no right to refuse registration
to such parties, the law excluding them
from stiffiagc being unwarranted by the
Constitution. This will show that tho
disfranchised people of this State occupy
an anomalous position. They arc re
quired lo perform ever duty of a citi
zen, as paying taxes, serving on juries,
and assisting in keeping np the public
highways, but aro denied the right of
voting or holding office. U:ic of these
proscribed citizens may remove fo a

residence lo acqniro citizenship, will bo

has been inaugurated in this Stale for

The Radicals profess extraordinary
friendship for the negro, and insist that
he shill be made a voter. Out this game
appears to bo confined only to those Statos
whero they arc in the minority and need
tho voles of tho negroes to enable them
to gain or hold control of the States. In
the Northern States, whero tho Radicals
and Republicans have the majority, they
have been very slow to confer political
rights upon tho negro The Republican

to pass a resolution indorsing negro suf

that ancient Commonwealth to adopt it.
Such a resolution was offered, but it was
