It is reported in Washington that Senator

Cabinet, if tlic latter gentleman retires.
Gen. Logan decline the Mexican mission,

ed. Tho President communicated to the House of
Representatives, before its adjournment, an
answer to the resolution asking whether any in
formation was in possession of the Executive De
partment in relation to a to-called decree of tho
"French Agent in Mexico" establishing slavery
or peonage in that Republic.
Tho Government had received a copy of that
decree through Mr. AW H. Corwin, tho charge
tVoffaxrei. and Mr. Seward submitted it to Attor-
ncy General Speed forms opinion. Tbclattcrhas

frank and cordial manner, tho intcrviow being of
tho most agTcoablo and satisfactory character. In
tho coursoofafrco conversation upon tlio conai-
tionof the country, tho President was assured by
the delegation that they had not sought tho inter'
view for thopurposo of suggesting, and much less
dictating, a course of action in tho existing emer
gency. On tbo contrary, they camo to signify to
him their admiration of bis character and confl

him from his trust, and expressing tho President's
acknowledgement of his fidelity, and tho loyalty

of tho co-operation of tho Government of tho

A communication from tho Secretary of tho
Treasury in responsa to tho Senate's resolution of
tho 13th inst,, states that the rccordsof tho depart
ment do not show that any persons have been ap
pointed to nny offioo notaulhoritcdby tho existing
law, but admits that persons havo boon appointed
to oflico who have not subscribed to tho oath refer
red to under tho customs and rovenuo laws in tho
latoly insurgent States, but that no salarios had
been paid, with ono exception.
Tho Secretary says ho sought for persons
for such offices who could tako tho oath literally,
but failing to find thoin, to select thoo who gave
no aid to tho rebellion until tho government of
tho United States had failed to givo them tho pro
toction to which they wcro entitled. Ho believed
that very few person not belonging to ono of theso
two classes, aro holding positions under nisuo-
paruncm, anu tuawn D . . '
somo timo either engaged in hostilities against
tho government of tbo United States, or holding
SUto or Confederate office, citbor willingly or un-
willingly. Ho acted upon tho presumption that
Congress would modify tho oath and not subject
tho South to this humiliation, or tho rovenuo sys
tern to tho odium which would result from tho cm
ploymcnt of Northern men as (tax rgatlicrcra. He
suggested tho absolute nocessily of immcdiato ac
tion on this subject, as valuable services havo
been rendered. No payments havo yet bocn
tna.lo forsnch services, and the safety and cflicicn
i cy of tho rovenuo system in tho South depends on
such a modification,
Tbo Commissioner of Customs reports that
most of tho officers of customs appointed sinco

There was a time when the South may be
Raid to have coined money for the whole of
the civilized world. Her people spent it
with a princely munificence in patronizing
the schools, industries, art and literature of
other Qoininuntics. They have now been im
loverithed; hut the war has not robbed the
soil of its fertility, nor tho climate of its
balm. The natural resources arc as great as ,
ever the means, though disorganized, will,
in tltccourec of , time, be readjusted, and the
lands will become as prolific a? in times
But at the threshold of the geficral renova
tion which is now become necessary, it is
well to take a considerate view of our true
interests. These, in our opinion, will direct
our labors, not fo much to the production
of raw staples which supplies the labor of
other communities, as to the combined pro
duction and manufacture of our owu com
modities. Already has an unfriendly war been inau
gurated upon the agricultural industry of
the South, by the introduction into Congress
of a proposition to amend tho Constitution
so as to authorize the imposition of duties
upon exports. Whatever may be the object
of this movement, the effect is palpable. It
is to curtail the prifiU of producing the
staples jieculiarly Southern, and throw
an undue proportion of the public burdens
upon the shoulders of the Southern people.
It will reduce the price of labor, and grind
into powder the African laborer, for whose
welfare (so assumed) so much of the blood
and treasure of the country has been ex
pended. The Southern people, white and black,
arc thus forewarned of the policy sought to
be imposed upon them. If they shall not
be fore-armed, it will be their own fault. If
they shall devote their entire energies to the
production of their peculiar staples cotton,
rice, sugar and tobacco relying upon
other communities for necessary sup-
plies of provisions, utensils, stock, clothing,

Ar.fiKO NUFrilAUE THE XOHTIf
A SOUTH COXTKANTF.I.
An clalioratc table has been published in
tho Constitutional Union, showing the differ
ence between the Northern and Southern
communities in respect to tho burden of the
negro clement of population. It shows that
in 1SG0, supposing the whole population
about twenty years to be voters, in South
Carolina and Mississippi the negro vote pre-
dominated over the white vote. Iu nineteen
out of thirty counties of South Carolina the
nc.groC!, ia(j the majority, and would elect
ti,c;r oty officers. The same is generally
the case in Virginia and in the Gulf States
in all such counties, where there are large I
(own. M tbc white clement is more settled
in tho latter. In Mississippi the negroes I which has thrown abomb-shcll into the radi
had a majority in thirty-five out of sixty cal ranks. Indications are now somewhat
counties. The car has tinct thai time changed
the result still more in favor of the negro.
If, for instance, the war has destroyed in
eorgia - .-.3o,517
white men, then tho negro vote will be equal I
with the white vote, and as thoso States have I
certainly lost more soldiers than that, they
w;u lavc a colored Governor, and their Leir-
M wiU Ito a colored majority, if tho
negroes arc pcrmmcu to vole.
Hut Jet us now look at the North, and be-
Kin with the six New England States. There

grocs, of whom a good many they sent into
tho field. Tho total white population was

one negro voic. urn, notwithstanding that,
Connecticut only recently refused to let her
few negroes vote!
Jn Minnesota they had in 18G0 only 259
negroes, or ijt white votes to every colored
Tote, in Wisconsin tney lia.l, at the same
time, 1,171 negroes, or 5G2 while votes to
every negro vote. ct these States, whose

QUE WASHINGTON LETTER.
The".fieecl.or Thnd. SlcvClis Radical
special cop.nr.;roSDESCE of the duly umos and
Washington, December 22, ISM.
"-Thospcech'of Jlr.'Thad: Stevcn?inthe'
House of Ecprcsentatives on last Monday,
is a speech of much importance not on ac
count of its ability, but because it sounds the
key-note pf the Radicals, and exhibits,' in all
its deformity,, their policy and their control
ling motives. Jle says: "If they (meaning
the Southern States) should grant the right'
of suffrage to persons .of color, I think there
would be always Union white men enough
in the South, aided by blacks, to divide the
representation, and thus continue the lie
publican ascendancy." This,, then, is the
motive which actuates him and Jiia party.
He must have kown that his argument in
reference to the rc-cstablislsment of (slavery
by the South, was so absurd that none but a
simpleton could be deceived by iL If every
Southern State wished to establish slavery,
they could not do so ; because slavery is now
abolished by the Constitution of the United
States, and it would require three-fourths of
the States to amend the Constitution so as to
permit its rc-cstablishmcnt. Mr. Stevens
knows that the Southern States have no ex
pectation of re-establishing slavery, and no
desire, under exitting circumstances, of doing
so, cither now or in future. It is true, many,
perhaps most of them, believed that the de
struction of the institution of the domestic
slavery of the African race, as it existed in
the South, would operate injuriously to thj
Negro race, and would destroy, to a great
extent, the industry of the South, and,
thereby, inflict great calamities on mankind
by decreasing, in a great measure, the great
staples of cotton and sugar, which may be
considered necessaries of life.
It is for time to show whether they were not
right in their views. The laboring menpf
the North may yet regret that slavery was
ever abolished. But the people of the South
regard it as an accomplished fact and now
have no disposition to change it. They feel

to practice in the Supreme Court without
taking the test oath will be argued to-day by
Eeverdy Johnson. I think it will be decid
ed in favor of thcconstitutionalityof thcoath
I am afraid the Supreme Court is as radical
as Congress. The desire with many of the rad
icals is to humiliate the Southern people
into tho very dust, lam inclined to think they
will ' however overshoot the mark land
will bring upon themselves the odium
of the people in all sections. The inexorable
logic of events, the destruction of the great
staples of the South, which they are bring
ing about, will do more to overwhelm them
than all the constitutional arguments which
I can be made. Tallow at a dollar and sugar
I at fifty cents a pound, will do what llcvcrdy
Johnson, with all his ingenuity and ability
I cannot accomplish. I find thc.ofliccrs and
I soldiers of the Union army more favorable
I to the people of the South than the men who
I have shown their courage and patriotism by
staying at home and making money
Since the above was written the President
has sent in a message to Congrcss,'in regard
to the state of feeling in the South, accom
panicd bv a rcnort from Lieut, fipm nnt
more hopeful than they were a few davs a"o,
The issue will, and soon must be made, bc-
tween the President and the true Union men
of tho country on the one side, and the Radi-
, , , ....
cals, who prefer to see the Union destroyed
rather than not carry out their schemes, on
tlic otcr, and m such an event who can
doubt the result. The Radicals will use
cvcry means to keep the Southern States
from being recognized as members of the
Union, until tl.ry feel that they can control
cvcryiiiwK uicir own way.
A fierce contest will tako nine; in Cnnvrc
in reference to negro suffrage in this Dis-
trict. The citizens here, nearly all of whom
arc opposed to it, think it will be defeated in
Congress, but I think they arc mistaken
There aro some men hero belonging to the
Republican party, who arc willing to change
the Test Oath so as to make it prospective
anj not retrospective as it now is, To this
there would be no Ferious objection on tl
part of the South. No man ought to hold
est and sincere friend of that government
and if the oath should morelv room tbn?
he would sustain the government in future a
t l n ... .
be formed in opposition to it, there would be
but little if any complaint on the subject.
fcomc modilicfttion will be made in tho oatl;
after awhile, at least such seems to bcthe im
pression here. Unless this oath is so modi
fied as to make it prospective, there can be
no real union of feeling between the two
sections. This oath puts under the ban for
one generation at least, all men of character
and standing in the South. No man in the
States south of Tennessee can take this oath
conscientiously who occupic any position
uencc in that country, nor do I believe

A Anil speakinK of ";ou uns" reminds me
'tKaTfiliortlya'ner the battleofShiloh, Adams'
Gavalrwas sent bylkaurcgard into Middle
Tennessee, to threaten and break the com
munication between Nashville and Ilallcck
and.,Bueirs army, at, Pittsburg Landing.
There was something in the thought, but
little in the execution. No fault, however,
to be attached to the aforesaid cavalry, or
their brave leader, John Adams wbose gal
lantry and chivalry was made conspicuous in
the bloody tragedy of Franklin. Cut off from
baggage and ammunition,- they brot up in
the -v.icinity of 'Winchester; welcomed by
the ladies of that noble county, they rested,
making occasional demonsfrations on the
Federal garrison at Fayetteville. Theood
people all Confederate looked for, prayed
fori figbt. They knew "our boys" could
whip 'cm for there wa3 " them Texas Hang
ers," but still the figbt didn't come ; but the
ready welcome was there, and day after day
the boys had their rations cooked and sen,
in. Hut noboby knew why the fight was de
layed. ' The Federate became saucy, and rode
out .to see " our boys" and the " rimmen"
and -tho "tZarHes" .and the "seed corn" won
dered why they didn't pitch in, "it looked
like a dare." And surely that man
Adams ought to be "turned out" by Davis,
"lie was no account and the President was
prejudiced for "West Pint." God pity us!
None knew save that gallant young man and
his confidants tliat he had not three rounds of
amunition for his command and hence could
not attack, but he must hold and deceive until
succor came or other relief could be had. But
yet why did'nt they fight? One bright morn
ing Capt. Chisholm (afterwards-Major) rode
into camp and roused the Bangers, with
such a laugh or scream as Texians only
know how to give exclaiming as he
laughed Boy's By George we must up with
traps and leave. This won't do for Terry's
men. " What now Cliis?" says Lart (the
laziest fellow that the camp ever saw but
the briskest that a fight ever knew.) With
another side splitter the Capt. proceeded to
say Well Boys I rode out this morning to
see that the company rations were being

quite amiable and kind to us, came to the

A FAVOKAIHjE SYM1TOM.
Wc are gratified to observe that a portion
of tho Radical press arc indisposed to follow
the lead of Stevens and Sumner, in their
mad assault upon tho President. The Wash
ington Constitutionalist and the Philadel
phia Press have both modified their tone.
The New York Tribune, in its notice of the
repent Message of the President and the ac
companying report of General Grant, speaks
as follows :
Wc find in the text of this Message no ad
enuatc reason for Mr. Sumner's denunciation
of it. If the President had demanded of
Congress that it act on his judgment rather
than its own. then he would have acted un
, . i i . i-.
warrantauiy; out, as uc nas siinpry given
his own view of the existing situation, with
his reasons for suggesting a particular course,
he deserves neither denunciation nor oblo-
Two crcat ends are now in view: 1. The
restoration of the States lately in revolt to
their former position in the Union ; 2. The
protection of their freedmen from future oi-
pression and outrage. We are in favor of
both these. Wc arc opposed to keeping the
fcoiithern btates lndeunttely in tne condition
of conquered provinces or territories ; we are
in favor of requiring and providing guaran
tees for the protection and rights of their
freedmen. There may be those who fancy
that they are favoring the freedmen by call
ing for the execution of the rebel chiefs, the
confiscation of rebel property, and the per
petuation of Southern pupilage or rather
vassalage ; out we ueiieve mere is a kiiiuct
and surer way of reaching tho end we aim
at. We sec not how we could help the freed
men by making war cither on the President
or on the rebels who have thrown down their
arms. Where wc find either in fault, we do
not hesitate to say so; but we judge thai the
true interest ot the black3 is to be subserved
by cultivating the kindliest relations with
Wc trust there will be developed in Con
gress the suavity and practical sagacity re-
qinrcu 10 secure aiuucu an cariy ruMurauun
of the Southern States and a perfect and
perpetual guarantee of the essential rights of
manhood to tljcir lrecdraen. And we still
hope to sec Congress and the President co
operate in securing theso bencticent and
howise inconsistent ends.
BmoAPiKis Qeskkai. Ilcau W. Mnn-
CER, of the late Confederate army, says the
Augusta Cbiistitulionalist, is now on trial be
fore a military commission, at Savannah,
charged with the "murder of seven Union
soldiers." It will be remembered by manv
of our citizens that a battalion then known
as "galvanized Yankees" while on dutv near
Ilardccville, on the Charleston and Pavan
nail railroad, conspired to desert from the
Confederate to the Federal forces. Through
information from some of the men engaged
in the conspiracy, the plan failed ; the entire
battalion was disarmed, the members im
prisoned, and seven of the prominent ring
leaders wcro tried before a cdTTrt martial,
found guilty of desertion and shot. General
Mercer is now arraigned before a court mar
tial, and charged with tho murder of those
men, who were guilty of the highest offense
known to tho regulations and laws of war.

A memorial was recently presented to the
Virginia Legislature from Kobt. E. Lee,
President of Washington College, asking for
an; appropriation to aid in establishing five
professorships in that institution.
.A New Orleans correspondent gives the
lollpwing scheme for raising capital and re
organizing the industrial interests of the
The great want of the planters is capital.
To use the words of an eminent Georgian,
'the value of the negro has buried itself in
m the soil." In the first place, the negroes
aro-gone from them, as so much capital for
merly owned, and now there mnst be a
continual outlay for hired labor, and no
means of reimbursing until tho new crop
com'33 on. It is pretty safe to say that ninc
tenths of the planters, howcver'wealthy in
lands and houses, are absolutely unable to
pay their hands from now till next October
without borrowing. Secondly, at least one
half the mules are to be repla'ccd. They are
gone, their bones lie bleaching beside many
an army trail and in many a corral. The
c6st of a mule in Louisiana is, tonday, vcrv
high. Lastly, many of the sugar plantations
bave lain Jdle for four years past, as also
many of the cotton plantations in the upper
part of the State. Here" are three Heavy de
mands for immediate outlay, and the plan
ters can not, from their otm resources meet than.
They must borrov. Where shall they bor
row ? Capitalists in the South are cdmpara
.tiycly unknown. Then they must turn to
the North. But the grca? difficulty here is
that there is a want of confidence. The
capitalist in New York or Cincinnati, re
mote from the scene, fcare high water, he
fears the worm, he fears too much rain, or
he fears a drought, or he fears bad manage
ment and unreliable labor.
This objection is met. There has lately
becn formed here a Planting AgencyAssoci
ation, having for its President Mr. Moses
Greenwood, and Secretay, Mr. Edward Dur
rivca. On inquiry, I learn that these men,
particularly, as well as the gentlemen com
jKising the association, are jicrsons of the
highest personal integrity and worth, whose
names, wherever they arc known, are an
abundant guarantee for thorough financial
soundness and honest management.
This company makes the following propo
sition to the capitalist : Acting as a medium
between the planter and the capitalist, they
procure from the former and turn over to the
latter mortgages on the plantations, and
liens on the crops sufficient to secure a return
of the principal and eight per cent, interest,
as a sure basis. In addition to this, they
contract with the planters for one-half the
net profits of the crop in return for the use
of the capital, and one-half of this profit
(one-quarter of the whole crop) they turn
over to the capitalist. This is only for one
year, in order to enable the planters to take
a fresh start. It is computed that one-half
an average crop will pay the capitalist seventy-five
per cent, profit.
But, it will be asked whether the planters
are willing to enter into such contracts. I
am told bv a member of the company, that
they have already had applications from over
one hundred planters, who would employ, if
tney could obtain it, over t a,OUn,OUO, simply
to stock and set in order their plantations
and sugar houses. Surely here is sufficient
The following calculation is made by an
old, practical planter of this city, of my ac
quaintance. It is in the case of a cotton
plantation lately bought by a company, and
which consists ot 1,S00 acres, Sl)0 of which
are cleared and in order. For the planta
tion tlicy pay,S19,000, of which ?C,000 is
paid down :
Cash payment $6,000
Twcnty-cieht mules, at $150 4,300

Extra labor for picking 4,000

are slowly coming 'over to confidence in the
emancipated negro, in spite of themselves, is
Tnn report of Carl Shurz on the condition
of the South was printed in the New York
Tribune of Saturday, filling sixteen closely
printed columns of that paper. Schurz say
at the timo he went South the people of
the late insurgent States were so despondent
that they would have regarded as a favor a
rcadraission on any conditions. ITc says h
found four classes : First, those who, being
compelled to yield, honestly endeavor to ac
commodate themselves to the new order of
things ; second, those who arc eager to have
their State rc-admittcd, with the design of
fixing matters to suit their tastes afterward
third, swaggering young men, loiterers and
idlers, who still assume to hope for Southern
independence; aad fourth, the multitude of
persons who have no definite opinions, and
arc apt to be carried along by those who
know how to appeal to their impulses and
prejudices. All these classes, ho says, arc
agreed that further resistance is useless, and
therefore all movements for separation have
been abandoned. He thinks this loyalty of
a negative character, and adduces letters to
show that tho people are hostile in places
where troops have been witndrawn. He
thinks justice can only be done to the
freedmen by extendtng to them the elective
franchise. Uo claims that their emancipa
tion is rather a matter of form than of fact,
and opposes, as unprecedented in history, the
disposition of the Government to intrust the
development of their freedom to the States
lately holding them in bondage.
He advocates the encouragement of educa
tion among the freedmen, and in his conclu
sion makes the following remarks: "Tho
loyalty of the masses, and most of the leaders,
of the Southern people, consists in submission
to necessity. The emancipation of slaves is
submitted to only in so far as chattel slavery
in the old form could not be kept up. But,
although the freedman is no longer consider
ed the property of an individual master, he
is considered the slave of society, and all in
dependent State legislation will show a ten
dency to make him such."
"Practical attempts on the part of the
Southern people, to deprive the negro of his
rights, as a freeman, may result in bloody
collisions, and will certainly plunge Southern
society into restless, fluctuating and anarchic
confusion. The solution of the problem will
be very much facilitated by enabling all loyal
and free labor elements of the South to exer-
ci o healthy influence upon legislation. It
wul hardly be possible to secure the freed
men against oppressive clas? legislation and
prtvatc ier.ccntion, unless he be endowed
with a certain measure of political power.
Plan to Prevent Street Railroad
COMI-ANIES FROM BEINO SWINDLED. The
Directors of one of the St. Louis roads pur
pose to lntroduec upon' their line the Prus
sian gitt svstem; cacii passenger who, rides
over the road is to secure a numbered check
ticket for each trip made, which if preserved
until the end of the vear entitle tho holder
to a chance in a distribution of $2,000 or
i-3,000 in gift to the passengers. Lach day
a onantitv of these numbered checks will be
given to. the conductors, who at night will be
required to cither return the checks or their
equivalent in tickets or moncv, and as each
passenger will be interested in securing his
share of the di.-tribution at the end of the
year, and will threfore demand his check
when he pavs his fare, the Company will
have a check upon anv disbnnratv nnon the
part of the conductors. The plan has been
in operation on the railroads about Berlin
for some years, and is said to be a success.
An Unfortunate Difficulty. A trul v
unfortunate difficulty occurred at tho conclu
sion of a ball at Court Square Hall, on Fri
day evening last, between two of our young
men, -Mcssjr. Dalton lanccy and Conrad
Garrett, in which the latter received a very
serious, if not fatal stab with a knife. The
difficulty is regretted by all: and as the mat
ter at dispute between them was of a purely
private nature, we forbear any comment.
The whole affair will doubtless undergo a le
gal investigation. Montgomery Mail, Y!(L
Wm. L. Samford, of Aburn, Ala., propo
ses to write a biography of the late W. L.
lanccy. He hopes to havo it completed
and published during tho ensuing year.
