The Editor of the Danville Time, after
nlitAinWl his nartlon from the Presi
dent, proceeds to denounce the " ruffian
arms" of the United States, and to denounce
the Supreme Court as " foul and corrupt,"
and ready to " betray its infamy to the civ
ilized world." Hear what he says:
44 The elections in the North demonstrates
that the majority of the people there are op
posed to the South having representation m
Congress until we acknowledge ourselves the
meanest of traitors, and-onfes8 to such un
mitigated scoundrels as Butler and Brown
low.'tJiat we owe our lives and property en
tirely to their mercy. In a word, if we tarn
ish our honor and disgrace our posterity if
we make the son of Ham our superior then
they will consider ourright to representation
in Confess ; but, even in that event, they do
not agree to let the South lie represented.
Strange to say creatures calling themselves
MENmen of Southern birth are found
willing to bow the neck to any amount of
dishonor, shame and degredation exacted.
And for what ? What will we gain by dis
honoring ourselves i Representation in Con
gress i Perhaps so, and perhaps not But
admit that we get representation in Congress,
by base self dishonor, what good will it avail
us I W hold that men base enough to dis
honor themselves have no right to entail dis
honor on the posterity.
What, then, is our duty, as men men of
honor and common decency ? Would you
know ? Then listen : Refuse to endorse
the '-Constitutional amendment" consent
to stay out of Congress, as you have been do
ing, and carry the right ofCongres to impose
taxes on you without representation, to thel
Supreme'Court of the United States. That
Court, if Court it can be called, being as fou
and corrupt as any dead carcass that ever
hatched veruain, will no doubt decide against
you, but then it will betray its iolamy to the
Southern men men of honor stand firm
in opposition to voting base dishonor on
your heads and if entailed upon you by
ruffian arms of corrupt oppressors, you can
at least have the proud satisfaction of ex
claiming to generations in ages far yet to
come, " Thou canst not say I did it "
The Wilmington Dhpateh is not sure that
the South would not succeed in another con
flict of arras. It scorns the idea that the na
tional government was right in suppressing
the rebellion. It says :
"War never settles a principle. It only de
cides how far a principle may be asserted i
and whether the party claiming to be gov
erned by it has the power to command a re
spect for it. The doctrine preached by Nor
thern papers that the questions which divid
ed the sections of this couistry are settled,
and that the principles for which the South
contended are determined to be wrong, is
stuff. No rights have been determined by
the defeat of the Southern people in their ef
forts to achieve independence. The only
question which has been determined is that
as to whether the South or the North is
strongest. Some minds are not so fully sat
isfied even on that point, but are of the opin
ion that with the same ehanees and the new
experience which the South has acquired, the
result obtained, in another conflict, would be
changed. " Of this we are in doubt, though
we are inclined to believe it is so; but this
does not and cannot affect the question as to
whether the North or the South ought to
So far as we are concerned our opinions
are the same to-day that they were in 1861,
only a little more so ; and we believe that
the truth will yet lie vindicated. If not in
our generation, at least in those that follow.
We think that the Southern people are very
foolish to tacitly acknowledge that the war
has ended in the triumph of a principle, and
in the vindication of its merit; and admit
that, because conquered, they 'Here wrong.
War is the instrument that brute force em
ploys to commit injustice; not the court in
which justice is distributed.'"
Great is Secessia ! And yet these are the
men who are "demanding their rights" at
the hands of Congress ! These are the men
who are ruling and domineering over South
ern Unionists ! How long is this to endure ?

The Forthcoming Message.
New York, November 19. The " Post's"1
Washington special say3 that the facts divul
ged to-day show but little hope that the
President will reeonimend impartial suffrage
in nis message.
A special to the " Commercial " says it is
confidently expected that reconstruction will
be amicably settled early in the approaching
session. Negotiations for that purpose are in
progress between the President and leading
politicians ot an parties .worm ana oontn.
The basis of settlement will be universal suf
frage and general amnesty. The President
partially accedes to this proposition, but in
sists on constitutional grounds that the ques
tion of suffrage properly belongs to the
States, and he is, so far, averse to any action
of Congress upon that subject.
The telegram also states if assurances can
be obtained from Southern leaders of the
speedy adoption of universal suffrage, the
President will waive his objection.
