Some of tho Radical journals arc be
ginning to express doubts as to whether,
should tho leaders of that party accom
plish their scheme fur negro suffrage 'in
the South,' thhf the benefits of the mca
sure-would inure to them. They are no
bj certain that tlio riogro, if allowed lho
ballot, would cast it in tho interest of the
Radicals, and hence, they - hesitatcnnd
entreat their leaders to canvass tho mat
tcr well before 'they 't'ako a step which
may- be; tho death-knell .of .their party.
Prominent among the Radical organs
which now" look with disfavor upon ncgrd
suffrage, is tho Now York Nation, one
of tho ablest iu the interest of that party
In a leading article on "Universal Suf
frage and "Universal Amnesty,'' in a recent
issue,, tho Nation says :
"Now, if we absolve the Southern lead
ers from all their sins and .arm. the blacks
with the ballot, the first result will be thaf
the persecution of the freedmen will in
tantly cease. So far, so good. But at the
same time the southern politicians will go
to work; diligently to cultivate the Good
will of tho negroes !o practice on their.
prejudices, on their ignorance, on their
weaknesses of all kinds. At. .this gtmo
they will certainly beat all competitor,'
They will be ou the spot, at every tavern,;
at every cross road, on every plantation,
bringing to bear ou a population bound to
them by various sorts of tics all the arts of
the most adroit and accomplished canvass-;
ers." lheyhave the leisure, tne training;
and experience necessary for the work, and,
will doit thoroughly. Our orators, will;
not go down to contend with them. Pro
baoly their lives would not be- safe if they
did. 15v way of counteracting their
schemes, aiid keeping alive tho fidelity ofi
the Ireedmcn to the Union and to liberty,
we shall deliver lectures at lvceums in
New England and the INorthwesf, stirring!
harangues at tho Cooper Institute, .New

Tribune and Independent, which half a mil
lion of Northern whites "will read, but
never a Southern black. Docs any calm

wc are now caning into existence, mat ino
negroes would not be driven into UieSouth-j
em net jt'i-t as completely as the ignorant
whites of tlie South and tho ignorant Irish i
of the North havo been?"
It is a question that scarcely admits of
doubt that, if the negro wero clothed with
tho right of suffrage, ho would exercise it
in behalf of' those with whom his inter-,
ests wero identified. The history of all'
ed laboring classes will establish the

The same day on which the families were
attacked, the remainder of the, drove- of
hogs were seized with some strange disease,
having something of the character of hog
cholera, and nearly all. have died. The oc
