A PROPER DISPOSITION.
Under this head, the "Wilmington (North
Carolina), Journal indulges in some remarks
which we desire to adopt as aa embodiment
of the sentiments which govern -us in our
journalistic capacity. If tho people of the
two sections are to live together in political
union, it certainly occurs to every calm.
thinking mind that the end may be more
advantageously attained and more easily
reached by sinking the prejudices of the
past as far as human nature will permit us
to do w. There must be concession on both
sides, or the peace which has been conquer
ed by the sword, will never be ratified by
the sentiment of the heart. The Northern
man must cease his abuse of the Southron
and forbear the ungenerous flings, which
are so common, involving tho motives
and honor of our people The South
ern man must smother his hatred for the
Northman whose education has taught
him a different view of governmental re
quirements. We must endeavor to res
pect each other or the bonds of Union will
be little better than ropes of sand. Our own
papers should cease wrangling upon politi
cal questions, knowing that the right-think
ing people of the JSorth do not expect it
from us, while theEadical disunionists only
laugh at and then despise the excess of seal
which they must know is not felt
Instead of whetting our pens for the bit
terest of denunciation against the radical
press of our own State who aro endeavoring
to fan the flame of Northern hatred against
us, by misrepresenting the people who have
sworn fealty to the Government, let us treat
them with the silent contempt which un
scrupulous infamy merits. Leave them
alone. The right will come uppermost after
a while. These journals will reach the end of
their rope, and the cruelly maligned people
will cease to support them.
It must be a source of regret, saya our co-
temporary, to every Southern citizen, that
there does not exist among- us a greater
amount of unanimity of opinion a3 to the
proper mode of action at this particular and
critical period in our history. We cannot
help believing that our leading men in pub
lic affairs have too little forbearance with
each other, in many instances evincing a
self-will too dogmatic for gentlemen in pur
suit of the public good. "When differences
of opinion exist upon the weighty matters
which affect the public weal, wisdom would
seem to indicate the necessity of judicious
concession and compromise. No one will
expect that all 'men in a State will think
alike, or that oppositions and conten
tentions will not occur. But the asperity of
these antagonisms may be greatly mitigated
by temperate and well-disposed discussions ;
and if this discussion be entered upon with
an honest purpose really to seek the greatest
good of the people, the result will seldom
fail of the most beneficial and grateful fruits.
Now in our humble opinion, if there was
.ever a time in our liistory when this spirit
of sober moderation aud careful looking after
the right course to be pursued, should actu
ate and govern our public men, that exact
time is the immediate present. If it were
possible that such a state of things could ex
ist, no jarring or discordant difference of
opinion and action would be known amongst
us at this big and vital crisis a crisis, upon
the harmonious and peaceful adjustment of
the affairs of which may depend, for a long
time to come, our existence as a self-governing
nnd independent State. Shattered in
fortune decimated in population and re
duced from the dignity and importance of a
sovereign State-to the subjected condition of
a mere province or dependency by tho for
tunes of war we should certainly take ad
vantage, as far as our self-respect as men
will permit us to do so, of every offer of the
authority which holds our destiny in its
hands, to reinstate us in our independence
and original sovereignty. In this great
work of reconstruction, however, we, as well
as those who mainly control the matter, have
our part of the transaction to perform. This,
to a great extent, we believe we have already
done ; and but for a difference of opinion
among ourselves an apparent suicidal de
termination not to join hands for thcgeneral
good and a persistent course of questiona
ble representation of the honesty of purpose
of one party by the other we should this
day have been back in the Union, fully re
habilitated in all our sovereign rights and
How long this state of thinps fatal to our
hopes and destructive to our best interests
may continue, we of course are unable to say.
We may be allowed, however, to express tho
hope that it will be of short duration. A
wise regard for ourselves urges us to use
every means in our power to make it as
brief as possible.
Church Difficulty. The Parkersburg
(Vo.) Democrat publishes an account of the
arrival in that town of Bishop Kavanaugh,
D. D., of the M. E. Church, South, and Bev.
G. W. Maley, of the Kentucky Conference,
whom the Bishop appointed to take charge
of the M. E. Church, South, at the Parkers
burg station. These divines held religious
services on Saturday and Sunday, with the
intention of continuing them through the
week, but some of the " malignantly loyal "
members of the congregation forcibly closed
the doors of the church in the face of the
Bishop and the minister. In this state of
affairs, one of the original trustees, on behalf
of himself and the preacher and a portion of
the conereeation, applied to Judge Loomis
for an injunction against the two trustees
who had thus forcibly closed the church
against the Bishop, but the Judge refused to
allow the application, and the church re
Greeley In n Good Humor.
The New York Tribune has a Christmas
article congratulating the country upon the
peaceful manner in which the heroes of the
war (on either side), have betaken them
selves to the ordinary pursuits of life. Tho
allusions to the Southern soldiers speak well
for Mr. Greeley's liberality of feeling. Here
are some of them :

" Christmas 1" says the merry chimes, and
the streets are filled with the shouts and rc-
ioicing3 of the revelers. But I sit in the
glow of the firelight and muse, and the
sounds of mirth fall all sadly on my ears as
I think ot the "times of war." 'Tis not
meet that we should cast shadows over the
remaining joy of the present, but somehow I
have no Christiias heart to-night, for shadowy
phantoms of buried hopes are rising, and I
cannot sec the light of living sunshine.
I have just been reading a Southern jour

I cannot but contrast with the warm South

The Phenomena, of Suicide.
Heretofore it has been assumed that all
suicides are insane, and, hence, that their
conduct cannot be tested by the known laws
of human action. So far as passion or mo
mentary loss of self-command is considered
insanity, this may be true. In France, how
ever, a different theory has been promulgated,
and Dr. Boismont. an eminent physician.
has recently published a treatise on suicide,
in which he subjects the whole question to a
searching analysis in accordance with the
mental and physical laws governing man's
nature. Tho Doctor maintains that "if tho
motives of suicide, and the laws which gov
ern and control them, can be even approxi
mately determined, a great step will have
been gained, both by improving the pathol
ogy of the malady, and by diminishing its
active and predisposing causes." This is
undoubtedly true. Vast discoveries arc
being daily made in different sciences, and
there can be no reason why investigation
and painetaking analysis in the direction
pointed out by Dr. Boismont may not pro
duce the most fortunate results. The causes
producing or predisposing to suicide, what
ever they may be, seem to run in cycles.
For a long period comparatively few suicides
will occur in a particular counjtry or locality.
Then tho disease, or whatever it may be,
will break out, and case follow case with
fearful rapidity. Again, particular modes
of self-destruction seem to prevail at par
ticular times. At one time drowning is all
the rage, at another poison then fire-arma
or the knife will be used, and at ono period
in France so great was the mania for jump
ing from high towers that all such places
were closed against the public. Upon gen
eral data such as these the investigations of
Dr. Boismont are founded.
The tables attached to the treatise of Dr.
Boismont make it appear that there is not
much truth in the generally received im
pression that tenacity to life increases with
old age. On the contrary, it appears that
the proportion of suicides is greater between
the ages the seventy and eighty than between
the ages of thirty and forty Another wide
ly spread popular fallacy is that suicides arc
most frequent during the gloomy racntlis of
the year. But the incontestible evidences,
of figures show they actually occur most
rarely in November and December, and aro
most frequent in the months of May, June
and July. Nor is it the case that the dark
hours of the twenty-four arc those generally
selected for the performance of these dark
deeds of horror ; 2,094 suicides take place by
daylight against only 658 by night It is
also ascertained that the low countries fur
nish the most numerous cases of self-murder;
tho mountain districts are generally the
lowest in the list In the four thousand fivo
hundred and ninety-fivo cases analyzed by
Dr. Boismont, there were one thousand five
hundred and one single men and five hun
dred and seventy-nine single women ; one
thousand one hundred and twenty-nine mar
ried men and five hundred and fifteen mar
ried women ; two hundred and fifty widow
ers and two hundred and eleven widows.
Thirty-seven thousand nine hundred and
twenty-three person! committed suicide in
France between tho years 1827 and 1860.
The following are the mean used and the
relative proportion of each i Strangulation,
14,866; drowning, 11,843; lire arms, 4,390 ;

Dr. Boismont is exceedingly interesting, and
the subject cannot fail to arrest the attention
Cholera, in the West Indies. We
have most unwelcome news from Boston, to
the effect that letters had been received
there stating that the cholera appeared,
about the middle of November in the Island

(Basse Tcrre) of only 6,000 inhabitants,
there were 107 fatal cases on the 22d nit
If this report is correct, it behoove m to

That which most concerns every man is- the
performance of his own, duty, leaving events
to Providence. Wc find the fact to be, that
there are large numbers of men who were
formerly our slaves; suddenly emancipated.
and on whose labor and good conduct we are
dependent for prosperity and order. W
recognize universally the right they have
acquired to receive fair wages for their la
bor, and we expect them, in return, to render
an equivalent lor what wc pay. lno me
chanical part of our obligations is obvious"
enough, but the spirit in which they are dis
charged is more important and influential
than any contract or regulation of wages,
nawever laiuuuuy luiuueu.
Wc believe that this spirit is almost uni
versally such as it shouldbe. The relations
of friendship and-sympathy which subsisted
from childhood between the two races in the
South must continue to animate them in
and happiness of both will be imperiled. It
win not do oiuicuii ror us, wno nave so long
enjoyed the fruits of their labor, to cultivate
a spirit of Jundncss and lorbearance it wo
bear in mind the condition from which, tho
frccdmcn have emerged, the ignorance and
helplessness which it produces, and tho good
behavior and subordination of their whole
conduct during the late war. H a race en
slaved for ages does not exhibit universally
the ability and inclination, when suddcnlv
emancipated, to tako care of itaelf, we must
bear m mind that tins emancipation was not
their own act and but for disunion could
never have occurred.
What are the duties which devolve upon
us, in their altered circumstances, for tlio
what are our duties, even if they should
generally exhibit what prophets of evil pre
dict a universal tendency ot tiirmicssncss
and indolence? those are the questions
which, should occupy our serious thoughts.
We hold that the only answer is still the
same--to do our duty, and wait, if not with
hopefulness, with patience anil resignation,
events which wc cannot control. Before wc
give way to tho suggestions of despair, let
us, with honest intentions and indomitable
perseverance, employ every effort to improve
and elevate a race whose productive industry
in the past has ministered to tho general
prosperity, and whose peculiar faults are
mostly the fruiU of a condition to which
their race ha3 for ccnturita been subjected.
Uniform kindness and forbearance, and tho
manifestation of a generous interest in
their happiness and elevation, will in
the end, render them a contented and
valuable class of the population, or
else they arc inaccessible to tho influences
which, in every age, have proved most pow
erful in the impvovement and civilization of
mankind. It rrust be borne in mind that
they have on their part tho powerful incen
tive to industry which arises from self-dependence,
and, although tbey may not all
realize this at first, yet experience, that hard
and efficient schoolmaster, will soon make it
evident to the dullest comprehension. Wc
do not believe that the humane and generous
people of Virginia contcmplato with any-
tlung but poignant sorrow tho possibility of
the demoralization and extinction ot the
colored race, and we therefore invoke them
to exhaust every remedy of patience and
toleration, -and every means of moral and
intellectual training, before they permit
themselves to despair of their future.
Hitherto,on the whole, making due allow
ance for the bewildering and almost stun
ning effects of tho lato political and social
convulsions, they have exhibited a degree of
sobriety, fidelity and good feeling which no
ono could have expected, and which has
rarely been equaled in the historv of the
world. With the ct-adjustmcnt of our old
political relations, with the restoration of
business and social affairs throughout tho
country to accustomed channels, the labor
ing classes of Virginia will readily tike their
place in the universal march of industry and
Wc can greatly facilitate this result by re
fusing to assume that they are certain to bo
mere cumberers of the ground, and by doing
all in our power to educate them to industry
and good habits, and to mako them feel that
we desire their happiness. The religious
communities of the South, which in the con
dition of slavery labored with such signal
success to train multitudes of this race in the
knowledge and practice of Christian virtues,
should hasten to lead and give tone to the
general effort for the temporal and spiritual
good of those multitudes whom they have
always recognized, even in their day3 of
bondage and humiliation, a3 brethren.

The Secret ot FettlaaisiB.
Fromihe Now YorWoxliL
The Fenians in America have succeeded in
making their movement more or less ridicu
lous by their intestine quarrels, and by that
curious talent which angry Irishmen have
for combining the formidable in passion
with the grotesque in expression.
But it is neither philosophical or just to
treat Fenianism as nothing more than an in
effectual and extravagant joke. A move
ment which generates a literature of it own,
which enrols hundreds of thousands of pco
ploiri what tho world regards as a hopelest
enterprise, and whicli extends itself, without
leadership, or, so far as we know, without
any person of marked ability to control it,
Tho British rule in Ireland certainly is
not likely to be broken down, even by sub"
scriptions of a million dollars a year paid
into the treasury ot an imaginary Ansa -ct
public, established at New York or Chicago.
If wo in America have learned nothing else
from ther terrible experience of tho last four
years, we havu learned at least that war in
modern times is the most expenaivo of all
possible luxuries. More money than has
yet been consigned to the keeping of the Fe
nian financiers has been spent over and over
again in a single week of obscure and
uneventful campaigning among the hills of
the Shenandoah, or in the swamps of the
Gulf. But the probable political importance
of Fenianism is one thing, and its certain
historical interest quite another. An article
recently- transferred, to these, columns from
the London Athenawn threw a striking light
upon this latter aspect of the Fenian move
ment, by developing the fact that Fenianism
already possesses a literature of its own. es
sentially differing from tho literature of all
previous revolutionary epochs in the con
nection of Ireland with. England. The lit
eratr.ro. of tho Irish struggle for indepen
dence in '9S, and of tho "Young Ireland"
movement in 18 IS. were not more unlike
each other than the literature of the Fenian
ism of to-dav is unlike both. Tho " Young
Irelanders""in particular, though men of
unquestionable ability and earnestness, seem
to have been almost entirely powerless to
move the popular heart of Ireland. They
wrote passionate poems and published elo
quent appeals against tho English domina
tion; but under the terrible pressure of the
great famine, so awfully and so truthfully
pictured by Aubrey Da Vere, the peasantry
of Ireland were Ur more intent upon escap
ing from a sorclv smitten land to tne Canaan
of peace and plenty beyond the Atlantic,
than upon doing battle in the midst of their
misery and their rags with the well-fed and
well-appointed armies of tho empire.
ToJav. on tho contrary, the voico of Fe
nianism in Ireland comes from the lips and
goes to the harts of the cotter and the ditch
er, of the poor anu piam peopic oi uie green
island. Wo have! taken pains to collect
from Cis-Atlantic Sources quite a number of
nathctic character which belongs to tho pot-
ular poetry of sttch countries as Poland and
Bohemia. Tho reader of theso effusioni
will be especially struck by their perpetual
reference to tho decay of Irish nationality,
to the eviction of the Irish peasantry from
their small holdings, and to tho divorce of
the Irish clergy from the national cause.
The secret of tins dominant tone of tho cur
rent Fenian literature probablo furnishes
the truest key at onco to tho strength and
the weakness of tho Fenian movement
Ever since the great famine, and the en
actment of the " Encumbered Estates Bill "
by the British Parliament, a change lias been
silently but steadily going on in the social
constitution of Ireland analagous to that
which has been gradually accomplished in
the Highlands of Scotland; Tho tendency of
things in the one case, as in tho other, has
been to convert the land into great gheep
folds and cattle-farms for tho British market
The work attempted by Cromwell with lire
and sword the depopulation, namely, of
Celtic Ireland, and the resettlement of the
island with English and Scotch Protestants
ha3 been resumed, and with far moresucccss,
through agencies more potent, precisely be
cause they are more pacific capital and en
terprise making more progress in a decade
than violence and rapine in a century.
Oniric tn nnnreelataand resolute to act upon
all real modifications in tho condition of an
aire or a neonlc. tho Roman Catholic clergy
in Ireland seem to have perceived the greater
importance to tho Church of retaining a lolid
hold upon the actual Ireland around them
than of passing into an exodus with the Ire
land of the past It is very doubtful whether
the recent progress of Protestantism in Ire
land lm been at all'commcnsurate with the
recent depopulation of the hereditarily Ro
man Catholic element and what may strike
one at first as an incipient Irish Protestant
ism in the anti-clerical tone of many of the
Fenian songs and ballads, is probably to be
attributed to an unconscious recognition iy
the Fenian feeling of tho fact that Ireland
may possibly ceaso to bo Irish without there
fore ceasing to bo Roman Catholic

The proposed amendment to the Constitu
tion, basing representation in Congress upon
tho number ,of legal voters, will, it is said,
nass both Houses at an early day. A no rres-
ldent favors its passage, according to our
report, though this is denied. Tho Western
States will gain representatives by it, and it
will lead ultimatly to giving the righta of
suffrage to the blacks at tho South !
It will lead to more than this. It is a
direct bounty in favor of making women
voters. . . .

their excesses in women ! Indeed tho former
