PI'IUSIIIM AID mOrRIKTOB.
Three Dollars per year, In advance.
FRIDAY, JAX..17, 18C8.
Never, until Saturday last, did wc
fully realize- the utter degradation
prepared for the South by fiend-like
puritanism ; ui uevcr till thcu, did
wo appreciate the depths to which
white men would dokise themselves
in their eagerness to reach the level
of the negro. So great is the impe
tus of their descent that they ran not
check itattheprociso pointof equal
ity, and go ns far below that point as
as it is possible to sink.. For the ne
gro we can feel pity, because lit docs
not know what be Is doing; but for
the white who can seek or accept of
fice at the hutids of such a mob, lan
guage can not express our contempt
It is strange, too, that these degen
erate whito men, whether hailing
from 'tho North or tho South., kave
so littlo forecast, as not to see that
this state of things can not last for
ever, They ought to know that
negro suffrage is the result of vil
lainy and force, and tlmt, in the
light of returning reason, it' will
vanish like a troubled dream and
leave the whito betrayers of both
races at tho mercy of an outraged
and indignant people. That day is
not distant, and then tho depraved
wretches who aro now rioting with
negroes amid the partial ruins of
constitutional liberty, will be so low
in the social acalo that it will be al
most a disgrace to lend them the toe of
a gentleman's boot. If they aro con
gratulating themselves upon the pros
pect of retaining their ascendency by
drinking and sleeping with negroes,
they have learned littlo from history,
and,lcssfrom the volume of human na
ture; they are strangers to tho instincts
of gentlemen and know nothing of the
inextinguishable lovo of liberty im
planted in the hearts of Anglo-Saxons
iu all oliuesaud uuJer all circum
stances. The white man who could look,
without a blush, upon tho scene pre
sented on tho st root and in the Court
house, List Saturday, forgot that he
was created in the iiniiyc of God, and
the superior of the race, which tho'
now dominant, bears upon form and
.laco, the marks and blight of Heav
en's malediction. lie forgot, too,
that TeiinesHco was the home, und is
tho grvc nf Jackson and Pulk nnd
Grundy and Cave Johnsotl, und that
thoir uicmories nre insulted by the!
)iobald party of full blooded negroes
unJ white ekiuuud knaves wlio brawl
nu not wucrc tne llltistnous dead
inculcated lessons of wisdom and un-!
llying love of liberty.
Wo beg tho render's pardon for
d. veiling so long upon such a theme,
but wo could not p.ss over unimprov
ed the opportunity to warn tho uo
groos that every step they aro taking
under the guidance of their, falso
yankco friends, is towards their owu
ruin, und that their unwise use of the
privilege unlawfully conferred upon
thorn is demonstrating their utter un-litiicb.-
fur any participation iu the ad
ministration of tho govcrumeut, and
th-iir constant hostility to southern
whites is forfeiting cvcryclaim to their
future consideration aud favor.
Wo say these things in no spirit of
viudictivcuchs, but because it is true
us will be verified by tho eourso of
events. When tho change comes,
tliey will have no right to ask favors
nl' men whose rights they havo striven
t ) de.itroy, whoso prosperity they
have tried to blast aud whose social
position thoy have sougt to degrade.

that there exists a parposo and i

GENERAL MX(0CK AND THE KE..
Wc arc Indebted to our young friend Bon
WooLiminoe, of the house of Short & Co.,
who is just from New Orleans for the fol
lowing information. A very interesting in
terview was had on the 12lh Inst., between
General Hancock, and a large delegation
from Kentucky on a visit to New Orleans,
by invitation of the Jackson railroad. The
delegation embraced several of the most
prominent citizens of Kentucky, among
whom were Gov. Charles Andersen, Sir.
I'lournoy, I'resident of the Paducah railroud,
Mr. Huurier, Mayor of I'aducah, Mr. Quiglcy,
Messrs. Woolford and others. The delegates
were bccompanicd and introduced by Mr.
Walker, of the New Oilcans Times. On.
Hancock immediately opened his doors and
received with great cordiality the warm
hearted Kentuckinns, and having shaken
hands with all, Gov. Anderson addressed
li i in iu one of tbe ncastest, most tasteful and
eloquent littlo speeches, we ever bad the
pleasure of listening to. .
As a distinguished soldier of the war, the
brother of Gen. Robt. Anderson, the first
hero of the war, on the Cuion side, as Gov
ernor of Ohio whilst the war still prevailed,
Ike remarks of Governor Anderson compli
mentary to Gen. Hancork upon his mag
nanimous course, his devotion to Justice to
the Constitution, to tbe restoration of civil
authority; his touching albjsions to the
misfortunes and distress of the people, tbe
desolation of the country and the vast re
sults which depend upon the abandonment
of a policy adverse to persecution and op
prcssion, and the resumption of the reign of
peace, cluuity, freedom end tho constitution,
were, in the highest degree impressive, ear
nest nnd eloquent. No report could do jus
tice to this beautiful little address.
The reply of Gen. Hancock was marked

J timing no special merit for tho discharge
'of his duties in accordance with his convic-
lions and bis leeling?; in an ofUee which he
never desired and indeed would have declin
ed, if he could hare done so without an ap
pearance of evading duty. Ho was grati
fied to find his course approved by to respect
able a body of citizens. All his experience
and iustiucts were opposed 'to tho continu

He should continue in (liis course until su

cenuircs or reproaches it might bring on

maukind. W lib n few other remarks com-
plimcntary to Kentucky and hcutuckians,
tbe General again shook hands with tbe del
egates and after some agreeable conversation
with various old acquaintances in the dele
gation, the interview closed and tuu gulluut
Kenturkinus retired with the most sgrceublc
iinpressionsof the manly and generous uti

and could be enfocsed. There was nothing
to warrant tbe interposition of a Court of
iupiily. . .-. ,
The Judge admitted that there was (treat
deal ef force in the argument advanced by
tile roundel for the old corporation, that when
private Hants were vested by the forma
tion of publie mrporetiona, tba Irftgisfo
ture bad no right tointcnere with them, al
though he admitted the power of the Legi.
Intura to control miuieipal rlectloac bat he
held that this question could not possibly
come up In this case.
There was a part of the bill, that which
alleged the pecuniary Interest of tbe plaintiff
in the city and hi rear tbe.t on irreparbie in
jury would be done Dim by the seizsure ny
tbii illegally elected Board, of the City Gov
ernment, but tbe danger was to remote, tiiat
even th long arm of it Court of fcquily
could not be Interposed in his defense. A
Court of Equity could not interfere when
the danger whs so reunite. The Judge also
was of the opinion that s corporator of the
city must be an inhabitant of the city. Tbe
remedy lor tbe evil eomplaincd of, and tbe
true wav to test tbe constitutionality of these
laws, was to allow this illegally elected set of
officers to go forward and be qualified: and
upon their first official net, tbe old Board be.
ing legally the corporation, weuld bnve tbe
ripht to sue them in the name of the corpor
ation, or any individual propcrly-holder,
whose property might be taxed, would have
a ground of action against the tax collector.
In like manner, ' any citizen unjustly u
prived of the right to vote rnL'lit bring an
action. Uut under the view of the case
which he took the application for an injunc
tion must be denied.
.The illegally elected Honrd have thus
' gained a barren victory. Tbey may go on
and be sworn in and take possession of the
offices, but they will find it difficult to exer
cise their functions. Their- victory in tbis
suit reminded one of the lending lawyers at
this bar of an incident which happened in
one of the mountain counties of NorUi Car
olina in the days bof'ore the whipping post
and the pillory were abolished. A certain
mountaineer had been guilty of some offense,
and went up to court for trial. Upon bis
return a neighbor asked bow ha came out.
'Well", said he, "I came out Brstrate. They
