In nnt lHpation of the action of the
2?ew York Convention, It is not mm-
ual to see, lu Northern Democratic
i papers, the brottd ground taken that
defeat, In Koreiulxf, will bo profcrn
' blc to a victory thnt fulls short of the
popular endorsement of the browlest
principles of Democracy represented
' l-y the storrtpst advocates of three
principles. The cry of " t w hole loaf,
. or no bread" may be vastly patriotic
In those whoe friwichiweg arc not vi
olated and who political necks are
i not yet under the heel of theKizzurri-
footed negro. But mich Hhouldncith

fionth, whose first prayer hIiouM be

easy forthe adoption of audi measures
as the wisdom acquired by experience
Mid the exigencies of the times may
suggest for the restoralioiiTliid perma

In one section, and immediately en
dangered in the other.
. . Situated as arc the people of the
. South, in pressing need of relief, if it
,-be only partial, we can not but feel
that half a loaf is better than no
bread. Partial relief, If prompt, will
bring life and hope to tlio Southern
people; but defeat will be ruin In all
; Its forms, pilltical, social and coin-
merelal. In hui.1i a crltda, the cry
- from ns, that m will have no candi
date but Pendleton, and no platform
' without his plan of paying the iia

. truo. grit, but, In our opinion, would

The doctrine of availability, we
know, Is scouted as cowardly und un

.in seizing, at the right moment, upon
the right means for the accomplish

should refuse to save a portion of the
wreck because his til le once was good

neither brave imr wise. Vv'isdom Is
an abstract idea is without form and

It Is apparent to all ju,l un-.ldispas-Kiouate

to national ruin. The government
can not survive four years more of
Radical usuvpat ion, and nothing short
of the overthrow of Unit parly can
tuvo Hie country from financial, po
litical and in r;il ruin. And if, with'
liberty, honor and prosperity hanging

Gen. IIawley, in announcing to
Grunt his nomination, said: "W
mean to nvike it a solemn practical
reality in tho United Status that nil
men are created equal, Ac., &c." It
Is as natural for a Radical to lie res for
a dog to bark, and IIawley knew
when ho tittered the foregoing' Unit it
Is the settled purpose of his party to
deprive of their equal rights the
whiUwof the Hunt h, and ntnk them,
politically,, below the negro. And
yet w ith this purpose well nigh ac
complished, lie has the brazen impu
dence to tell tho country that the
luiaicais have undertaken ns a solemn
duty, to make all men equal, regard
less of the decrees of Omnipotence,
the conventionalities of civilized so
clcly and the Incidents and Occidents
of natural laws. The conoeitod find
and arrogant knaves think all things
possible with them. Tho born idiot
and distorted dwarf they can make
equal to tho most gigantic intellect
and most perfect In physical propor
tions. The misfortune attending the
display of their supernatural powers
Is that they can devise no better mode
of bringing about equality among
men than that of dragging them all
down to the same dead level of Intel
lectual obtuscness and moral de
pravity. When the christian philosopher be
comes the worshijipcr of the buivUy-.
Idols of Ethiopia, the Intellectual
stateman stoops to bo tlio sordid seek
er of equality with negroes, for ne
gro votes, and offices dishonored in
tho getting; when female purity
ceases to recoil from the horrid beast
liness of miscegenations; when the
Saxon maiden offers her beauty as the
lawful prize of the thick-lipped Ethi
opian wooer, and feels no shame In
the foul pollution, then may IIawley
exult over the triumph of his party
in achieving the equality of the races.
Till then It will never bo accomplish
ed, and before then IIawley and his
base accomplices will have filled the
space made vacant by the late vol
canic eruptions in the .Sandwich Is
lands. Tun Radicals brought on tho war
by their lawless cry against slavery ;
they prosecuted the war by dement
ing the Northern masses on tho same
subject the negro has been their po
litical stock intrude from the origin
of the party to the present hour, yet
we look In vain, in (he Chicago Con
vention platform for tlio word negro,
and the allusion to him is the declar
ation that the loyal (States have the
right to regulate suffrage for them
selves and, by inference, that Con
gress has the right to regulate it for
the disloyul States.
Tho failure of impeachment and
the democratic victories, all over the
North, have evidently frightened the
brave usurpers, and induced them to
give the cold shoulder to the agents
of their Kucc;-y and props of their
ill-used power. Tiicy will sacrifice
tlie negro sooner than let him over
throw their supremacy, and .since
they aro beginning to sec that they
have thrust the negro in the face of
I lie people unt il he has become offen
sive, it will cut them no ell'ort to
drop him to crush him, if need be,
rather than tolerate him as mi oli-
staelu to future success. The poor
darkic will soon have played his
trump card in American politic, and
lie an I his gambling political leaders
will shave a common laic contempt
ond powerless obscurity.

I should not undertake Ihis to you
but in fullllhuen-t of my promi-e. and
somewhat too out of regard to such
pleasant memories as are, and ever
will be associated with your columns.
I am living ten miles from any

if they know or care anything forthe
current events that are so seriously
shaping the destinies of their own
section os well as of tho Republic at
large, am too busily engaged in wrest

nothing of a local character that

Improved plantations continue to,
l .offered hero at figures that would I
scarcely command tho unhewn acres
of western wlhls, nnd find no pur
chaser. This apathy of capital to the
extraordinary inducements of south
em lands at this time Is something
astonishing to me. However may
terminate the problem of the recon
struction of our social, industrial and
political interests, which the carpet
baggers are so busily gnawing at,
there are ducats, my dear Chronicle,
and many qf them, in purchasing Im
proved plantations along the line of
railroads and navigable streams, and
accessible to nil the appliances of
commerce and civilization, at like fig
ures with wildernesses yet untrodden.
Should cotton remain at the same
figures as now, by the coming harvest
tho South, like the sick man of scrip
ture, would take up its bed and walk.
The capital which the growing crop
would bring to the South at present
figures, would swell its flattened
purses, and hearts, too, amazingly.
It would enable; her farmers to begin
their next year's operations, with
something like adequate facilities,
and these once attained, southern ag
riculture would march on to those
brilliant results its climate and soil so
certainly include, and this too In spite
of political misrule. A good crop and
good prices this year, would at once
largely appreciate the present song
figures of land, and too late excite tho
regrets of timid or indifferent capital
ists. Such a crop would also go far
towards restoring the proper and nor
mal relations between owners of the
soil and its tenants or laborers, which
have hero been dissipated, not more
by the desperate and unscrupulous
elforts of the Radical party against
them, than by the extreme lmpecu.
niosilyof the landowners. 'With the
means in their hands to control these
lands and shape the operations there
on as desired, not nil the efforts of all
the most desperate and tyrannous
agencies on earth could long keep the
negroes unpliublo to such appliances
as could be exerted upon them. I pro
diet the day will yet come, when the
North will regret, far more bitterly
than the South has, the vindictive
addition of four millions of voters she
lias forced upon that section. The
poisoned chalice she has prepared for
a fallen foe will be commended to her
