addresses?tor instance,-in an address

you certainly remember the address
which 1 delivered at th'.s place in
July, l?T?, uii the occasion of th<e
reunion of my old regiment. Don't
you remember the little hell which
the Radical Republicans raised about
it at the time? Here is what i said
in conclusion : '1-ict m? forget that
there has been a war. Let its oblite
rate every evidence that remains of
the strifi , ami meet on a common
platform of truth and justice, with t ho
love of a common country ns a bond
of union, that shall unite us and our
posterity for all future time.'"
"And what of Hampton?"
"1 have never had confidence in a
government; largely controlled by a
population just disenthralled from
slavery. The persons to successfully
govern an intelligent people, such ns
ours, must themselves be educated
and intelligent. The educated white
people of (he South wotdd have ob
tained control of tho State Govern
ments long before this, had their pre
indices been less bitter and the hatreds
growing out of,the war less intense;
and had they adopted the situation
and pursued the policy which (lamp
ton did last fall. Tho policy which
Hayes has adopted will return pros
perity to the South; the Government
of Hampton will inspire confidence,
ns it will be honestly and faithfully
"What effect will this policy have
in tho future upon the political
organizations of tho South?will
Democrats leavo their organization
and jiue the gang' with Stau ley ?"
"1 think not. There may be di
visions in the Democratic parly, but
they will be upon men, and purely
local?in national politics, or, rather
in political organizations, Democrats
will remain loyal to their party. It
is true that more charity, if I may so
call it, will bo entertained for the
Republican party, ami more confi
dence reposed in it; but the 'policy,'
ns it is called, is in the South espe
cially, regarded as tho offspring of
the Democratic parly, which party,
(aided by Conservative Republican,
forced recognition from the adminis
tration. Tho negro clement, the
main support of the Republican party ,
will 1 e largely controlled by the
Democrats hereafter, and the colored
vote will be cast more for men than
for party. Heretofore tlt3 attach
ment and devotion of that race to the
Republicans was owing largely to tho
fear entertained that the success of
the Democratic party would result in
an abridgment of the rights of citizen
ship. The course of Hampton dis
pels this apprehension. Hampton is
honestly carrying out the promises
which he made during the campaign.
He has already appointed inoro color
ed men to office than were appointed
during the entire two first years that
I was'Governor, which were the first
of reconstruction "
"And what do you think will bo
?the future of the colored race in the
"I think that they will rjuietly and
ipeaccably enjoy all civil rights as
guaranteed to all other ci tizens. I
believe, however, that an apprecia
tion ofthcir own good and advantage
will gradually eliminate thorn from
?sit least nu active partioipati on in
'pp/litias. They are a race very easily
?controlled. Labor is their field of
?usefulness, and they are especially
?suited to the fields and the climato of
?the South. It was a mistake to draw
?them prominently into pariisau poli
tics?tho white man (a fact which
must bo conceded,) being the super
ior, will never consent to be goverued
by an iuferior."

South by acquisitions from ihe color
ed vote; what say you as to nu ex

"I tldnk that the peoplo of both the
North and the South could support a
man like Hampton with po&fect con
sistency, and without the surrender
of a particle of principle, and no
more compromise of honor than a
Confederate makes in the support of
a Northern man. The causes which
led to the war grew out of our politi
cal system?the Haiuiltoniau and
deflersonian ideas of government?
consolidation and State sovereignty,
State rights; in a word, Hampton be
lieves in the teachings of Calhouu,
and that he owed his first allegiance
t > Iiis own S.a'.e?the people of the
North believed otherwise, and tho
conflict came. The disagreement has I
become accord. Before the outbreak,
as is well known, Hampton was a
Uuiun man?he is now as loyal as
any citizen in the country, and at
the head of tho government, would
administer its affairs us honestly, as
ably, and as faithfully as any states
man of the North possibly could do.
Looking at tho country in the light
of the recent strikes, it seems to me
that the most reliable conservative
men will be found in the South.
There the relation of capital and la
bor is best understood, and the most
respect entertained * for each other.
Tho South also possesses within her
self the means of suppressing every
thing tendiug to communism. When
the lolly of the government in disfran
chising citi/eus on account of their
political opinions is fully appreciated,
then there will ho nothing more to
prevent a Union soldier voting for a
Confederate, than there now is to re
strain a Southerner from vuiing for a
man from the North."
