" Mean " or " Poor Whites" and SInlattoes.
The Southern newspapers, which
to represent the late slave holding aris
tocracy, are loud in their professions of
attachment to President John, and yet
they. lose no opportunity to insult him
by sneers at what they designate the
" mean or poor whites." They are
well aware that President Johnson,
more than anv man in the South, i the
reoresentative of the poor non-slave-
holdinsr whites. He boasts on all occa
sions of his humble origin, and of his
rise in the world in spite of the frowns
of the aristocracy ; and yet the South
ern editors and politicians ot the seces
sion school take every occasion to throw
comempt upon the poor whites, ihis
however, may be the result of long hab
it, of which the chivalry have not yet
been able to break themselves. We
must remind them that they never as
perse the late loyalist convention as be
ing composed of mean or poor whites
without heaping: insult upon the man
whose pardons they sought for months
before they obtained them, and which
hey are proud to hang up in their par
Another favorite calumny which the
rebel press is fond of repeating is con
tained in the epithet " mulatto conven
tion." There is this much color for the
application of this epithet, viz.; that
one of the delegates from Louisiana has,
apparently, a slight tinge of the Atri
can in his complexion.but not more than
the Rev. Mr. Ross, formerly ot East
Tennesee and lately of Alabama, who
became a areat lavorite with the chiv
alry before the war, in consequence of
his books and sermons m iavor ot slav
ery. His African orisrin is as well at
tested as the fact that he married into
a respectable white family, or the other
tact that he was everywhere treated as
a guest and equal oi the Southern aris
We might go further, and remind
those who sneer at the " mulatto con
vention," and the mean white conven
tion that there are other eminent South
erners in church and State, who are
known to have a negro ancestor at the
distance of some four or five generations,
to whose industry and thrift the fortune
and foundation ol the iamily is due.
We might refer to the laws of the South
which define who are ruulattoes, in
proof of the fact that a man ceases to
be thus designated after the third or
fourth generation, and may hold up his
head as a white man. We know noth
ing of ihe rank of the delegate from
Louisiana in society. If we are correct
ly informed, the line which separates
the two races in New Orleans, and in
some of the parishes, is nearly oblitera
ted, so that among the Creoles it is of
ten difficult to say who is who. This
difficulty has doubtless given rise to
the misconception which prevails as to
the meaning of the word Creole. In the
free States, and in the more Northern
slave States, it is regarded as a syno
nyn for the mixed race ; but the Lousi
anians, who are sensitive on the subject,
insist that the word simply implies a
Whenever a man, though of known
African origin, grows rich and power
ful, and turns oppressor of his race, his
blood becomes purified in the eyes of
the chivalry. It is only when he gives
all the powers of his mind and soul to
the vindication and elevation of his
unfortunate race that the term " free"
negro or mulatto is applied to him.
We may say in conclusion that the
epithets, mean white, poor white, and
mulatto, have nearly spent their force ;
and the day is not distant when the
base and heartless demagogues who now
hurl thein as anathemas will address
cozening words of flattery to the unfor
tunate classes referred to. Vashiiq-
Grant and the Next Peesidexcy.
Herald, of Friday says:
From the troubled aspect of public affair
we have but little doubt that it will be a
necessary to elect Grant to the Presidency to
save the country in 1868 as it was necessary
to call In in to the duet command otthe army
to save the country in 18(54. With him in
the White House, all parties would be sat
isfied and all animosity assuaged.
Rowan County. The Old North State says
that the canvass ot the Legislature in Rowan
has commenced. The only candidates for
tne commons thus tar are Dr. I. W. Jones,
uapt. w ni. ti. Crawford and John K. Gra
ham, Esq. R. F. Johnson, of Davie County,
is a candidate for the Senate from the dis
trict composed of ttre-counties of Rowan and
Davie. F. E. Shober, Esq., is also under
stood to be a candidate for the Senate.
Accumulation op Gold. The rapid ac
cumulation of gold in the Treasury will, if
continued, afford a metalic basis for the Treas
ury notes in circulation. It is estimated
that ty the end of this month,
will have nearly,
if not quite,
millions in gold.
A fur trader lately went up Gateneau
River, Canada, with a small stock of
whiskey. He succeeded in making
considerable profit on his capital, but
was cautioned by the squaws not to re
turn, ot heeding the warning, he
brought again 2 barrelsof high wines,"
which were promptly rolled off the cart
down the bank of the river.
An English letter writer savs that
Gerald Masseyi3 passionately immersed
in spiritualism, and is indeed himself a
medium. He confides to his friends
that every idea in his new book on
Shakespear's sonets was obtained direct
ly from the chost of Shakesneare him
self t He says he went over the sonnets
line by line with the spirit, and had
the author's interpretation of each. He
did not state this in his book, for fear
of exciting the prejudice against
it. " ; ,

stamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Postage stamps cannot be used in payment of
the dnty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to
affix and cancel the stamp thereon. If he neglects
to do so, the party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if nsed after the
80th of July, 1864, and nsed without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part of the maker of an instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty of two hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced iu many States by other

stamps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join in the execution

ment is liable under the law, may be affixed and

that the stamp affixed must answer to. the value

No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying a bond or note, when such

stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever

stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or either of them. In such a
case a note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the stamp affixed: should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
