Negro Ideas of Freedom.
A Georgia correspondent, an old
ubacriber, writes to the New York
Journal of Commerce, as follows:
The i reod men have not yet dolibed
as gliarwy as could bo desired the
iloctrine of mine and thine. A gen
tlematj ol this city, on vioiting bis
inrin a few days alter emancipation
was proclaimed, discovered that ann
Jry houses and fences had been re
moved, and that Etaku6 had boon
driven into tlio ground in 'various
pIucoB. Ou inquiry, be cscertained
''roin bis quondam slaves' that they
had marked ou tho ground, and had
taken possession ul it lor themselves.
Demanding their authodty for such a
proceeding, be was told I nut "aa they
had been working for maasa all their
livo6, they had a right to the land io
payimutfor their labor" ignoring
tiio fact that maasa. had fudajid cloth-
d them, and paid tuxes and doctor s
bills for them during the poiiod ot
their iuvoluutary servitude, and ex
ponded sundry other snms for their,
beuetit. fu another instance, occur
ring last week,' a worthy citizen of
uiirke comity, Li. lhomas a Byne,
wt8 brutally murdered by 6ix of bis
former slaves, under the idea that
if bo were dead, tho land would be
long to them. Od tho whole, it
tuustlie admitted that the blacks have
conducted themselves with more
moderation and propriety tbrtn could
bo expected under the circamatancas.
Io emerge from vassalage -to liberty
with ono bound, is enough to intoxi
cate poor humuu nature and we
'tight not to bo surprised at.Bome
excesses, vv hen they got over tho
transition period" wo may hope for
better things 1 do uot wish to in
dulgo in evil prognostications, but 1

mighty problem, and keep you ad

It is a daily occurrence for tmt

As if here, even here,1 adds the
New York Express, employers sup
ported the old women and children
of tho employed, that give them their
meridian ol life! As U paupers were

thu pauper houses and other institu

none to work for them.
DCfWe notice, by the Boonville

How Oberlin Looks Upon
General Cox's Letter.
There lias been something of anx
icty to know bow the Abolitionists
of Oberlin would receive and look
upon Gen. Cox's letter, to response
to Messrs. Fairchild ami Plnmb.
We have received the Lorain County
iNaws, whicr. is published at Obtsr
lin, and which, nndonbtedly. in this
instance, at least, reflects the views
of iho Oberlin Abolitionists. The
News alleges that the General baa
not atuwurod the first question put to
linn, either "directly or indirectly."
The first question, be it remembered,
was ot very considerable importance,
inasmuch as it related to the amend
ment of tho Constitution of Ohio, so
aa to give the Blacks the privilego ot
voting lhe question was put to
Cox with blunt directness Are vou
in tavor of amending the Uuiatitution
for that pnrpose? To the News "it
seems fair to say tnat the first ques
tion ii ignored by the cuididate alto
gether." On this point there is por-
fect concurronco between the Uber
linites and those who do not live in
that placo. Furthermore, The News
hold that. General Oox gave "do di
rect answer" "to the second question,'
whether be was in favor of conferring
suffrage on the Southern Blacks, and
I assorts that in that "section, among
the radical Anti-Slavery men of thj
Reserve," his" views are anything but
satisfactory, and that elsewhere, "es
pecially among rynaervativd and
Pro Slavery men," 'his treatment of
tbe subject, it not distinctly his sen
timents, are applauded." While The
News "should have thought the bei
ter of Geuoral Cox, if ho bad diioct-
and frankly answered both the
questions addressed to him," yet it Is
not sure that upon the whole it
would have increased his popularity
in the whole State."
There is no danger that Oberlin
will bolt. Mildly will tbe abolitions
iBts there protest that General Cox's
otter is anything but satiatactory to
them.'because it dodges both ques
tions put to him; but, ioaamaoU e
through his dodging they were fur
nished a pretext f r declaring that
they are not satisfied with his position
to tho end that "his popularity in the
whole State" might be "increased"
they will give to biro their support.
Oberlin knows their man; he was ed
ucated in their college, and imbibed
all tbe notions peculiar to that insti
tution. Above all things, they desir
ed his nomination, because of tbeir
unfaltering faith in his ddvotioo to
the negro, bnilt on undoubted knowl
edge. They were guilty of an India-1
qretion by plunging out so boldly in
bebalt of Negro bunrage; thoy r-her
isbed the delusion that all the soldiers
would come home the ardent advo
cates of the extension of suffrage to
tiro Southern Negroes for the purpose
of subordinating tho bouthorn Whites
who Lad participated in tho Rebell
ion. When the soldiers began to return
home, they realized tbe fact that
tbe soldiers, as a mass, were in favor
of nothing of the sort- that they were
opposed to it utterly, and heuce could
not reconcile it to their minds to vote
for any man for Governor who did
favor it. Nothing then became more
plain than that something must be
done to help General Cox out of the
endangered position ioto which be
had been put by the abolitionists of
the Reserve supporting Irra on the
Negro iSuftrage ground. ' With the
soldiers and conservatives such sup
port would be fatal. JJeteat was cer
tain. There, therefore, was collusion
between Gouernl Oox arid tlio Ober
lin Committee. Evidently, the letter
of interrogatory was framed express
ly to give the General an opportunitv
to write a Tetter designed to catch the
votes of tbe soldiers and tbe conserv
atives. The News declares that both
questions were evaded, and that
would nave been better pleased with
the General had he given frank and
direct answers to the questions put to
him by the Uberiin committee: yet
draws great satisfaction from the be
lief that he has much enhanced the
prospects of his election by answering
them in tne evasive manner be did.
It is doubtful Whether this Oberlin
will succeed to the extent cal

"It has been supposed that - after

This is an error a grave and dan
