FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20. 1889.
DIlsCl'rMilON OF THE SOITH
The speech of Mr. Grady at Boston has
set the Northern mind in motion, and
may probably impel it into new channels
What was well known at the South had
apparently not reached the genera1 North
ern reader. To Mr. Grady was happily
given the opportunity of dinning into
the ear what was denied to the eye. The
graceful manner, genial temper and earn
est speech gave force to indisputable facts
which would have lost their effect if pre
sented in less pleasant wav ; and
to Mr. Gradv was paid the un
usual tribute of accepting as true
what fell from his lips setting forth
the real relation between the two
races at the South. Such acceptance may
not immediately be followed by a change
in Northern sentiment or opinion. Habits
of thought cherished for half a century,
such habits as led up to and sustained a
long, desperate war from their violent
antagonism to Southern thought, arc
too closely ingrained to be uprooted at
once. But the lea en is at work.
The North has to disabuse itself of sev
eral seiious errors before the basis for
reasonable consideration of the negro
ducstion can be had. Some of the exist
ing causes of difference are not so much
errors as wilful perversions. The extreme
Northern sentiment would force upon tin
South a social contact that is not toler
ated at the North, and also a political
recognition that has never been accorded
at the North. The South must enlarge
the area of privilege given to the negro,
not upon any principle of justice or qual
ification, but solely because they an
assumed to be a subjugated people, to bt
obedient to the will of the conqueror.
The negro, on the other hand, is the em
bodiment and symbol of victory, to bi
elevated and thrust forward every when
and on all occasions, a perpetual re
minder of might and conquest.
The South has the most powerlul rea
sons to combat this idea. First and lore
most, the relation of the South as an
equ.-d integral part of the government
with inalienable rights of sovereignity in
the management of its own affairs. Sec
ondly, in its solemn obligations to civili
zation and Christianity to preserve anil
advance what has been acquired at so
much cost. Experience of the unquali
fied, unnatural obtrusion of an element
dominant during a few years of misery
into the management of public affairs,
proved the wisdom, and also the duty,
of the people of the South to take such
affairs into their own hands, both for
their own welfare and that of the North.
Sensible men everywhere admit this. To
those who think otherwise there seems to
remain only the motive of frenzied party
purpose, or desire to reach again w hat
was once reluctantly foregone, a condi
tion which would rekindle sectional strife,
and reduce the South to the state of con
quered provinces to be parceled out as
spoil among the victors. We have no
apprehension of such endeavor. Wehavi
an abiding faith in the ruling good sense
of the American people.Nortband South ;
but then the North must learn more than
it now knows, and put a bit in the
mouths of some of its most blatant fa
natics, more properly, conspirators.
As we said, the leaven is working, and
as one of theeffectsof Mr. Grady's speech,
the Springfield Republican says some sen
sible things and makes some good points.
We make the following extracts from a
recent article :
"But no healthy purpose can lie served
by stopping here and neglecting to in
quire whether such a result in natural
from the conditions. When the freedmen
of the South were given the elective
franchise, did the republican majority ex
pect that they would make an intelli
gent use of their ballots ? Certainly not.
for the regular presentation of the Mail
bill is a conlession that the majority ol
the blacks are even at this day ill-fitted
for the full exercise of citizenship.
"Let us suppose that Boston were sud
denly inundated with the low-nroweu.
organ-grinding Italians and pailrones
ontil they outnumbered the white voters,
can any one say that there would not in
a short time be a solid Boston just as
there is a solid South ? Would intelli
gent Boston be content to lie ruled by a
propertyless throng? Why is it that
Northern republicans settling in the
South so soon fall into the habit ol
Toting with the democratic white party ?
Three prominent republican speakers
were sent into the 3rd congressional dis
trict of Louisiana a few months ago to
helo out the party candidate and in
cidentally to see what a southern election
was like. One of them, Congressman
Burrows, of Michigan, expected to be ap
pointed upon the House committee on
elections, and any information he might
obtain would greatly advance his use
fulness. He and his associates returned
wiser men. They perhaps are as strong
in thcr denunciation ot the social ostra
cism of the neero and of course they de
nounce as every good citizen should, the
use of force in driving voters, black,
white or parti-colored, from the polls.
But tbey found in ttft heart of that, the
near district of the state, little com
munities of northwest farmers, mainly, if
we mistake not, from Wisconsin where
the republican party faith is administered
with the mother's milk. And yet these
northern men now rote the democratic
ticket almost to a man. for some un
known reason A majority of the hotel-
keepers hi the larger cities of the South
ore Northern men, who may or may nt
rote the republican ticket at national
elections: bnt tbcv are not only straight
democrats on State and local affairs, but
they manage the race question about the
eatertainment oi guests quite oa oorn
We nay add as confirmation to this
latter statement that the town of High
lands, in Macon county, Western North
Carolina, contains a population largely
made up of Northern and Northwestern
men. They are almost all republicans.
They are iu a manner secluded by locality
from influences that might control their
opinions. Yet in county and State mat
ters their observation has led them to the
conclusion that their interests are safer
in the hands of the democrats than they
would be with the republicans, in which
party the negro vote so largely predomi
nates. In national elections they are
loyal to their old faith.
The weather is a subject so trite as
hardly to have merit enough or use
enough to "point a moral or adorn a
tale." It is the common entering wedge
to casual conversation, or, like the use ot
slanir. a convenient cover for want ol
brains. Sometimes, however, it is per
missible to dwell upon it, as either the
source of acute suffering or pronounced
discomfort; or again, when it is asso
ciated with the keenest of enjoyment anil
the most exquisite of pleasures, esjiecially
when these come out ot season. A sense
of srratitudc then becomes allied with
the pleasures of the hour or the day,
with hojietul yet doubtful looking for
ward to prolongation of unexiccted ha-
piness. How much of gratitude there is
in the eves that look up to the serene
skies, bask in the beams of a summer sun
shorn of its fervor, or inhale the balmv
breath of spring divested of its perfume
we do not know. Certainly there is a
leep and a surprised enjoyment, that
here, on the 20th day of December, and
lor twenty days previous, winter has
turned aside in its rude rough march,
and capriciously permitted the genial
spring to anticipate its pleasant ways
Since December came in, there has been
no winter; no ice, no snow, only once
or twice a little frost, no rain, no wind
no storms. The pretty belief of the an
ient in the Halcyon days, when, for the
seven days preceding, and the seven days
succeeding, the shortest day of the winter,
there was always a calm, during which
the kingfisher, a bird that lived on or
near the waters, was brooding, now
seems to have the realization with en
largement of time. The halcyon days are
urion all execot the turbulent sea of
The oldest inhabitant is at fault witl
his saws and his precedents. He never
saw anything like it. The weather
prophets are in despair; for not a single
prediction has come true; the scientists
are at fault, for they find no explanation.
Soirc of them, indeed, find comfort in the
belief that the Gulf stream lias drawn
nearer in shore, and that the arctic cur
rent has to that extent been occluded
Hut that is not where our cold comes
from. The gateway through the North
west for the great (rigid tides that pour
down from Hudson's bav and the shores
of the still farther arctic seas, still stand
nideopen. But now they swing back
the other wav on their hinges to let pass
the soft and genial airs from the Gulf
and the tropics.
For all this, there is a day vet of win
ter wrath, and perhaps within a week we
will look back upon the present charm
ing season as a most unreal dream.
The introduction, by all the mcmlwrs
trom this State, of bills for the total re
peal of the internal revenue laws, will
meet with general favor, qualified only
by the fact that such measure plays into
the hands of the high handed protection
ists. There are the obligations of the
public debt to 1e provided, and there is
the enormous and still growing pension
list to be filled ; and the receipts trom the
internal revenue have added largely to the
treasury receipts so as to make a large
expenditure and a large surplus not only
possible, but certain. The protectionists
think, possibly claim, that when the in
ternal revenue is abolished then a high
tariff must be relied upon to fill the gov
eminent coffers. And herein we think
they are mistaken; for the higher the
tariff, the smaller the importations and
the less the revenue. We pray that the
internal revenue will be abolished, and at
t tie same time the work of tariff reform
pushed to its ends; for in both eases the
great body of the people will be relieved
The democrats of the house already
'ive signs that they will find their way
out of the difficulty in which they were
placed as a minority body by a speaker
who was not slow to say he was running
the house in the interests of the republi
can majority. It was a very insolent
avowal, and at once aroused the demo
crats to the gravity of their responsibil
ity, for the republicau party constitutes
neither the government nor the whole
people. We hoe the lesson given on
Tuesday when the house was compelled
to adjourn on the motion of a democratic
memlier, rathtr than be subjected to the
arbitrary rulings of the speaker, who is
at present acting without any fixed rules
outside of his own party will, will prove
that the power exists and will be used to
curb any tyrannical purpose.
