Interesting Conversation of Confederate <
The Riclimond correspondent of tbe t
New York. Nation, a very intelligent i
gentleman, relates the following dia- «
logue overheard by him in the parlor of t
the Spotswood: r
As one situ in thehotel parlor or in tbe i
cool piazza after tea, it ia probable that '
the group surrounding him consists of _
men from all parts of the South. ______• r
tary titles are frequent, and the majority a
have on, if not a full suit,at least some arti- j.
cle of clothing made of Confederate gray 1
cloth, or of butternut brown. Few are a
without a pipe and a tobacco pouch.
Among themselves they are very fraiik in .
manners and speech, nor do lobserve tliat
a Northerner is treated with particular I
coldness, The old gentleman from Co- ti
lumbia whose property has all been de- t
stroyed, and who is on his way North to li
make a composition with creditors whom ■
he will never be able to pay in full; the a
man from Louisiana who thinks he bus t
as good a right to live in this couutry a., j'
any other man, who is going to stay and v
live easy if they leave him his property, '<
and stay and take it rough ami tumble If t
tbey don't; the gentleman who was born i
and raised in East Tennessee, and who v
has left his native State because he eon- I
aiders it unsafeforanymantliatluisbei'ii t
a Southern sympathizer to try and live
there, and who is now Idling foi a place s
to locate; the young i_fl| from North
Carolina who deserted from Lee's army 1
after Gettysburg antl worked as a farm- 1
laborer in Maryland—all furnish a share t
of the smoke and the talk. The last g
named person, however, does not, like 0
the rest, confide his past history to the t
company iv general. He tells it tome, i
knowing that I am from the Nortb, aud
adds that he reckons "they'll be pretty •
hard on a man round here if they knew I t
be didn't go plum through to the sur- i
render. Down in Moore co. be has two
brothers (baft were just as strong for the j
war a« any two fellows could be. He
didn't know what they'll say to him.
He reckons they stuck it out. He'd like
to get a good mule and carry on with
him when he goes."
The conversation relates to the crops,
tbo condition of the negroes, tho beha
vior of the Yankees ineach man'sneigh- I
borhood, the probable aetiouof the Fed- /
eral Government, Southern prospects in I \
business and politics, the state of public •
opinion in the North, all mingled with 1'
stories of the war—perhaps an anecdote 1
lof " Prince" John Magruder, an advea- I
ture with bushwhackers, a description |
of the wholesale destruction caused by I
Sherman's march, or of midnight rob
bery of a rebel family lv Tennessee.
A remark made by the Tennesseean
attracts the attention of his neighbor,
who __u*a: "Ah, doctor, have you been
Nortb recently?" "Yes, sir, I had lo
leave my home in Tennessee. My wife
is a New England woman, and I've
been staying with her folks. In fact, I
hadn't any other place to stay at, uud
wus very thankful to stay there."
•Oh, we're all poor together, sir; and
no Southern man need be at-hamed to
confess it. How did you fiud the people
"Weil, of course, they think they
were right, and they're mighty well
pleased to think that we're subjugated,
but everybody was kind and pleasant.
T.ie business men were all glad to see
Southern men coming back. You see
they never liked the Western men so
well as us. Westerners would often buy ;
when they meant to fall and smash up,
but we Southerners never had the _______
of doing that, and they like to see us
Here the gentleman from South Caro
lina interrupts. He i 9 a short, small
man, quite sixty years old, slow of
speech nut emphatic, and with a care

"Wer.> you owing much, sir, at the
"Well, yes, sir; I owed near forty .
thousand dollars wheu the war broke ,
"What did they do with you? I am <
expecting in a few days to meet eredi- J
tors of my own, and I would like to
know how they feel up there." i
"They'll treat you well. Very likely ]
you'll find that your creditors an* not
the men that you think. Some of my
paper had passed into second and third ■
hands. The original holders had failed,
been smashed up by the war, and my
notes were sold at auction. 1 got them
hick cheap. I heard of one Norfolk
house whose paper had been sold in that
way, and they got it again for ten cents
on a dollar. Others of my creditors
asked me for a full statement, made on
my honor, of what my debts were, and
the amount of property that 1 bad saved.
I gave it, and they dealt very fairly
with inc. 1 couldn't pay fifty eenie.
Oh, they leave a man a little. Of course
it depends a good deal on the kind ot a
man the creditor is, and a good deal on
your own character."
"Will they let a man have more goods.
"On credit?—no, sir. Won't do that, i
You may get ihem to fix it up in the
way of consigmni'iit."
"Well, sir, if it reasonable for them to ;
expect us to pay oar debts? Now here |
urn I. I may say that I haven't a cent ;
in the world. Sherman's army burnt i
my store and my house." |
"Sherman says he didn't." i
"He did, sir. There oin be no doubt I
of it. Oue of of the Yankee officers told
my wife not two hours before tbe fire ,
began 'Columbia is a doomed city.' I ,
cannot but think that the mora! obliga- ,
tion resting upon me to fulfil my eon- ,
tracts with my Northern creditor is neu* ■
Utilized. That was uot civilized war- ■
fare May be it was not my creditors
who were responsible for that devasta
■ ion But some of us down here were
innocent of the sin of secession, yet we
had to suffer with the guilty. Why
should not the Innocent aud the guilty i
at the North sutler tor-ether in the same
wav? Ido not believe that lam mor
ally bound to spend my old ago In toil
inp- to repay my Northern creditors. I
ought to be legally released irom my
indebtedness, and not leel that there is
a burden upon me which I can never
shake off," ... ~ ~
Thereupon followed au animated dis
cussion. The question, considered aa
one of pure abstract morality, was de
i cided against the old man; but it seemed
to be the general opinion that he would
1 have little practical difficulty in settling
, his affairs with his creditors. The com
pany seemed to think that whatever
' might be abstactedly right, they, mdi
- viduallv, if ibe y could not dl9 «harge all
• their abllgatious, would prefer paying a
[bout-em creditor ia full to making a
division amongst Southern and North
"Well, doctor, how do the people up t
there feel about negro suffrage?"
"I think they are in favor of it. In en
New England they are, at any rate. In vil
the first place, there's a class that think '
if the nigger gets a vote, they'll come es
down here and ride into office right ju
away. Always been friends of the black ar
man, philanthropic, and that sort of ci
thing, you know. They all go in for it. tl
"Then there's a very large class who jtl
think that tho South will always be !ai
raising the devil, seceding orsomethiug, ci
if they don't give a vote to the niggers, tl
'The niggers have all been loyal, they °
say. They all go in for it. Then a good *-
many think that we, at the South, if we A
are left to ourselves, won't treat the nig- 1
gei's well; and that class goes in for it. I i
wish all our people could see it as I do, >'•
and they'd go in for it too." v
"How's that? Do you believe In ne- P
gro suffrage." If
"Yes, I do; and I'll tell you why I do. w
It will work just the same here as it el
does there. The class of people there g<
that represent our niggers, the laborers, es
have a right to vote. My father-in-law cl
.mployes thirty-five Irishmen. They pi
ilways vote the right ticket, and he tells ea
them which is the right one. Now ma- vi
|or, if you hire thirty-five niggers, or
work 'em well, pay 'em well, and feed ni
'em well—they don't know William H. P 1
Seward from a foreign war, they care gj
nothing about the country (we all know $1
what their 'loyalty'amounted to—C'u.Fee
struck out for himself) now how aro at
they going to vote? al
"Why, they're going to vote as you W
"Vote themselves white wives more til
likely," said a young man from Char- It
lotte county. "No, no, sir; you are mis- an
taken," said another, and there was a Al
general expression of dissent. Some sh
other way than that must be discovered svt
for the South to obtain political power se.
in the Uniou. it
"The Northern friends ofthe negro," at
said the major, "if they want to benefit Ini
their protege, had better abstain from 1 tl
any interference in that matter, for the tt
Southern people will not be apt to stand b
it. Everybody admits that the negro t
is incapable of intelligently exercising B
the right of suffrage. Why give it to t
him, then? No people ever fought more «
bravely than ours have fought for the
I last four years. We have been obliged t
to succumb. With how small forces wo *
carried on the war has never yet been '
1 told. General Lee could tell, and somo s
time may. We were outnumbered five I
to one, and here we are subjugated, t
History records no example of auch it I o
war, followed by such a peace. Our peo-1 o
pie are quiet. No one talks of iasurrec- lii
tion. We go peaceably about our busi- ct
ness. Every difficulty that has arisen ci
in our streets is directly traceable to Iti
Yankee soldiers and the teachings oi c
Yankee negroes. Why should the North Id
profess to fear that we are not yet coa- i
cuiercd, or are not honest when we say _
j so? We are conquered, and all our ac- 1
tions acknowlecge it. We may not love 1
the Yankees; I don't think we pretend
to do that, do we, captain ? but we have i
made up our minds to behave as peacea- '
ble citizens. We can keep these States I
iv the Union, and we mean to do it. We I
have tried our best to take them out, and I
we admit, that we can't." This, in sub- -I
stance, the ln.iior delivered in an orato- t
rical style, and seemingly with the np- I
probation of all present. He then con- i
tinued, "But, of course, doctor, the North I 1
is not unanimous ou this question? II J
am given to understand that Mr. John- 1
son Is opposed to negro suffrage." «
" Yes, he ia. He takes the same view D
of the thing that I do, and you may be c
sure that he'll be like a flint. They
won't turn him."
" You know Mr. Johnson?" I
" Yes, sir, I saw him when _ waa on a
The conversation continued, and it ■"
seemed the conviction of all present that 1
nothing could be more preposterous, and _
nothing was more improbable, than that
Virginia should grant the right of suf- d
frage to her negro population. If such t
a thing should happen, nothing but e„- 0
lamity could be reasonably expt eted.— j
The national debt would be repudiated, f
What negro would deny himself a pound c
of sugar in order that he might honora- j,

The negroes could vote us into a war at ***
anytime. Anything would serve as a| ( (
pretext. Cuba was lull of slaves, make Cl
war on Spain and free them. f_
Every demagogue would do with them _
precisely as he chose. The doctor might
talk of laborers voting as the capitalist
directed, but if the laborer could vote (*■]
he'd soon vote himself a living out of the p t
capitalist's property. And, even if he l|t
shouldobey the directions of his employ- 8U
er, that would be of little good, as the
great majority of them would never have et
a regular employer. L
A young man, residing near Fort tt
Monroe, thought that a great many nig- c:
gers would find employment in the Fed- gi
eral army, as he had been told by an of- q
fv er whom he met there, that the Gov- d
eminent intended to distribute nigger
regiments here and therethroughout the
South to keep the people quiet. ■
This statement provoked a good deal V
of indignant comment. Nothing would I

The Baltimore American's correspond
ent passes the press of Richmond in re
view as follows:
The new .papers of a community, and
especially a community like this one,
just emerged from a terrible revolution,
are worth studying. Under no other
circumstances can we see more clearly
the power of the Press for good or evil,
than is shown here. Theleading paper,
are the Times and Republic. The form
er is the popular journal, and has by fur
the largest circulation in the city. It is
owned by C. 11. Wynne, a man of great
energy and tact, and is edited by P. H.
Ayl.tt, bettor known here aa Patrick
Henry Aylett, formerly an editor of ihe
Examiner. This paper is called by its
frieuds the "Southern" paper. It com
menced its career, as a leader of thepeo
f>lr>, then for lack of nerve, became a fol
ower instead, and now blows about
with _U<X>pi_—_ wind. Just before the
election, it came out in an editorial sug
gesting that the people consult tho wish
es ofthe unite:) States authorities inthe
choi-" of a Mayor, but finding that thia
propo.ition was not favorably received,
came out advising the people to select a
man to please themselves. It has had
one "warning," but this only gave it a
martyr's crown in the eyes of the peo
ple. Its business is very good, the re
ceipts having averaged something over
$10,000 per month.
The Republic is, by all odds, tho most
able and the most cordially hated journ
al in the city. It is owned by Messrs.
Walker ami Lewellen, and edited by
Mr. Robert Hughes, who was for a long
time the chief editor ofthe Examiner.
It is the "Union" paper of Richmond,
and a thorough "lnion" sheet it is.—
Abuse, stoppage of advertisers, the cold
shoulder trout old friends, all fall to
swerve it an inch from its course. There
seems to be a determined effort to break
it down, but thoubiiity ofthe paper cre
atea a demand fori) by the curious who
muat see what it says whether it pleases
1 them or not. It has the next position
to the Timet in point of circi'lation. It
is considerably in advance of publicßen
timent here, and while one year from
now all will look back with surprise at
the violent opposition its enunciations
evoke, yet very few now agree with It.
The 'Bulletin is a very pleasant and
readable journal" which,has a freshness
about it quite agreeable. Unlike its
more politic neighbor of the Timet, it
says pretty much watt it thinks, and
some mornings you would really think
the Confederacy still lived. This state
oi security comes from the fact that Ita
opinion's don't attract much attention
in the city, and its shrill bark may es
cape unheard where the hoarse growl
of the Timet would call down the mili
tary authorities in aminute. It is edit
ed with much ability, though not a great
deal of sprighUiuesß, by George C. Wed
derbrin, formerly proprietor of the
Southern Literary Mettenger, and Mr.
Dimitry, (son ofthe celebrated Professor
Dimitry, both of New Orleans.
