THE SOUTH AS SEEN BY AN ENG
LISH EE VIE WEE.
The Baltimore Gazette has taken
the trouble to condense a long and
elaborately prepared article in the
last number of the Edinburgh Etview
under the caption of " The Ninth
Census of the United States." "This
article," says the Gazette, " dis
cusses the condition of the South,
the woiking of emancipation, and
the future of the negro race. If
the picture is dark, it must be con
fessed there is much cause for the
gloomy shading." The statement
of the reviewer's opinion of emanci
pation and its results is thus given:
Emancipation is regarded as a
purely military measure, as much
so as the attack on Richmond.
Afterwards the blacks were used as
a garrison lor the South. The
result of this naturally was a
revolt of the people at the domina
tion of an alien race. The whites
were exasperated; old wounds were
kept unhealed, and the Govern
ment was weakened. The condU
tion of the negro, moreover, was not
iaijroved. On the,countrary, if the
census can be relied on, it was made
worse, although, upon the whole,
says the Edinburgh writer, "free
dow has shown itself to the blacks
neither as a destroying angel mow
ing down the unworthy race that
aspired to blessings reserved for its
betters, nor a3 a beneficent fairy
raising them as if by the stroke of
a magic wand, to an equality with
those who had been prepared by a
thousand years of well ordered
progress for the temperate
enjoyment of its gifts." The
rate of increase in ten years is not
such as to induce the belief that the
South is to become a negro
In the United States there were
five whites added to the population
lor every two blacks, and even Vie
Southern States held their own in
spite of all their disadvantages,
and of the exhausting emigration
after the war. Judged by their
fecundity while in slavery, thj
blacks should have increased one
million. The census computes the
addition at but half that number.
Why this falling off? What have
been tho causes of this striking re
tardation ? The writer in the
Edinhurg accounts for it in three
ways. The burden of the war told
heavy on them. Emancipated but
unprotected, want, disease, and
filth made fearful havoc among
them. Vice and immorality reign
ed in the refugee camps, and the
hangers-on of the army were a
wretched, di-ty, pestilence inviting
crowd. Scarecrows were gentle
men to them. Then, in freedom,
the total absence of the maternal
instincts in nursing and caring for
children, so inherent in the negro
character when untrained, showed
itself, and the children perished in
multitudes. This excessive infant
mortality all accounts agree in rep
resenting a3 in full activity still.
The care of the aged and infirm, so
beautiful a trait in a Southern
planter's home in the days of slav
ery, ceased with freedom. The
negroes were left to take charge of
their own sick and old. Many of
them were turned adrift upon the
world, and perished miserably.
There are few sign3 even now of a
much better state of affairs. Thus
the census hold3 out no brilliant
promise for the future of the negro
race in America.
We have unequivocally condemn
ed the woman's whiskey crusade in

outset of such a piece of fan
aticism. The temperance cause,
we believe, has materially suffered

strations of these apparently crazed

then, it is true, large fortunes are
amassed by reckless speculation and
the most wanton extravagance, but
they go to sustain the maxim excep-
tio prolat requlam, the general I
rule beinc that thrift comes from
economy and wealth is accumulated
little by little. If this principle is
true, it mv perhaps be well for the
Southern people to pause a moment,
and see whether or not a larger
proportion of their present depress-
ed conditiou is not due more to the
want of discreet economy than to
anv one other cause.
If we will notice the correspond
dence of some cf the leading North-
em agricultural journals, we will
in many instances be struck with
the mode of living of the thrifty
farmer of New England or the
Western states as compared with
that of the cotton growers. Take,
for example, a western farmer
whose real and personal property
is valued at $10,000. He produces
upon his farm nearly everything
required for its cultivation, as well as
for the use of his family, and fre-
quently the most thrifty does not
handle $500 in cash during the

vond a plain education, his wealth
consisting, to a great extent, in
the constantly increasing value of
his land. The Southern cotton
grower, on the other hand, who is
worth $10,000, imagintt he is rich,
gives his daughter a piano and his

up a store account of a thousand
dollars, and engenders in his fami
ly such extravagant habits that one
bad crop year frequently brings
upon him complete financial ruin.
There is no doubt too that this
extravagance among Southern farm
ers has woefully increased since the
war, ana is douotless due to the
high and abnormal price cotton has
generally been commanding. In

1860 a man worth $50,000 dollars
did not enjoy near the amount of
indulgences that in 1870 a man
worth 10,000 thought himself en
titled to. It was rare at the for
mer time for a merchant to have an
account of $500 against a farmer.
whereas now a man thinks he is
parvenu if he does not run his cred-
it to twice that sum, send his son
to college, teach his daughter
French and music, and commit a

We give the leading features of
the life of this distinguished Ameri
can statesman, who died at his home
in Buffolo, N. Y., as compiled by
one of our exchanges.
Fillmore was born in 1800, at
Summer Hill, Cayuga county. New
York. He was of humble origin
and was apprenticed to a wool
carder- Before arriving at the age
of freedom Judge Wood, of that
county, invited him to study law in
his office. In 1827 he was admitted
to the bar. He went to the Legis
lature in 1829, and in 1832 to Con
gress, acting with the Whig party,
of which he eventually became a
leader. In 1847 he was elected
Comptroller of New York. He was
placed on the Whig Presidential
ticket in 1848 for Vice President,
and on tha sudden death of Presi
dent Taylor within five months of
his inauguration was elevated to
the Chief Magistracy of the country.
Looked upon with some suspicion
by the Southern wing of the Whig
party as inimical to their interests,
he was not.long in making his stron
gesi friends in this section. Mr.
Fillmore advocated the Fugitive
Slave Law in his messages. The
other great event of his administra
tion was the expedition of Lopez to
The administration of Fillmore
wa distinguished for serene and
calm statesmanship in a troublous
epoch of our history. Mr. Fillmore
received the smsll vote of the
" American Party" in 1856 for
President. Of the sage who has
just died at Buffalo it may be said
that though he lacked the fire of
genius and somewhat of the vast
seope of the great statesman's
vision, he was an able leader, follow
ed as much for his Washingtonian
integrity as for his qualities of com
mand. The Richmond Enquirer very
aptly says : The apprehension
exppressed in some quarters for
the safety of General Phil Sheri
dan's scalp is not shared in by the
people of the Valley f Virginia.

which she was to realize a neat
little profit of a few millions, seems
to be meeting with but little favor
from Congress, after all ot t lie pret
ty fourth of July orations that have
been made upon the subject. We
wonder at this, but suppose perhaps
our public servants have too tender
a conscience, or rather too much
fear of their constituents, to add
this appropriation to the back pay
Our idea of the contennial question
is that it should certainly be ob-
served, and at Philadelphia, but
that it should be by a freewill offer
ing of the people, not a government
tal appropriation. There is no
power in Congress to appropriate
money to such objects, and it is as
inexpedient as it is unconstitution-
ai. We regret the local jealousies
that a discussion of the question
has aroused, though we think it but
natural that the South should look
with little pleasure on a political
jubilee at Philadelphia, a city that
has done so much to crush her and
which at this moment hates her, as
it does his Satanic majesty.

Mu. Editoe: The Local of the
Wilmington Journal lately indulged
in a bit of literary criticism and ln-
frmed the numerous readers of that
paper that they had all along been
mistaken about the meaning t the
above quotation from Shakspeare,
and that the poet when he makes
Hamlet say that ho was " to the
manner born" had no reference to
the locality of his birth, but to the
social conditiou and customs of the
country. The common understand
ing of the allusion is admitted to be
that which is expressed by the u-ual
spelling of the word manner, which
is mostly quoted " manor," and it
may b remarked here that tho pop
ular mind is about as apt to arrive at
the meaning of Shakspeare, as any
mure verbal critic, especially when
such a critit brings to bis work no
adequate knowledge of the orthogra
phy and etymology of our early lan
guage and literature.
Though the word is spelled as in
the quotation at the head of this ar
ticle, in all the common editions of
Shakspeare and that is, in all prob
ability the way he wrote it, yet this
by 10 means settles the meaning,
we consider that when he wrote
there was scarcely a word in the
language whioh was not varied in
its orthorgratihy at the mere wheim o
the writer ; and in interpreting their
meaning themixicn of the lawyers
is specially true, " qui hatxet in
itUra, haeret in lortiee." There is
no hesitation, on the part of an ordi
nary reader, iu explaining the above
hgure by referring it to tue well
known species of tenure in England
where the land was holden by cus
torn of the Lord of the Manor, and
its devolution, transfer, enjoyment
and rents were regulated by the cus
toms pfcuunr in many insrances
to that particular manor, and different
from the course of tho Common Law-
All matters relating to the lands so
holden were tried in the Lord's court
of the manor and the customs of the
manor when not contrary to reason
were allowed though contrary to the
Common Law of the realm. In this
view, Hamlet's exrr ssion has peculiar
lorce, and strikingly illustrates the
repulsive character of the custom
which not even associations with his
ancebtral royalty could make tolera
ble. He so ins to think it one of
those customs against right reason,
which no length of us ge can justify
The difficulty in explaining the pas
sage oy giving " manner the same
meaning which the word so spelt
has at this day, lies in the fact that
no where do we hnd " manner used
to signify an ordinary custom or
popular observance. It some times
has the meaning of habit or an in
dividual custom e. g. " Paul, as bis
manner was, went in unto them,"
&e ; Acts XVII, 2, but this
is the nearest approach, as far as
my reading extends, to the use of
" manner " in the place of "custom,"
end the dihvrence is very evident
between the two biguifications of cus
tom, one meaning a hubit of thought
or individual conduct, as in the above
quotation frru Acts ; and the other
.Ui: l 1 rni i . .
an esiuoiiMieu usage, inis latter
meaning the word manner never has
to my knowledge in any of
the Engl'.sh classics, and to lug it in
here, s. oils the effect of the allusion,
and, cn only be -just; bod by an lni
possibility of explaining it in any
But why may not manner be the
same as manor. Let us look at its
derivation and see if in 1600 when
Hamlet was written, the derivation
might not have led Shakspe re to
adopt the more English style of or
thography. It comes of a Latin
word, Mantrium and " Manerium"
says Loid Coke, " dicitur a manendo."
Modern Lexicographers suggest
a derivation from a Celtic root, but
in Shakspeare's day it was familiarly
known " a manendo." The natural
way to English manerium is by maner
or manner.' The Law French for
manerium was "mannor," and that
has gradually come to be the invari
able English spelling, dropping one
' n,' but it is not uncommon to find it
with an "e " and one Mn, " or some
times two. in our cider writers. The
Fceneh biin Mannor, naturally chan-
26S in English to Manner, as we have
it Here m xiuuiiuvb uivum ,
Chaucer we find :
"And I dar seync, and swere byt wele.
That Trouthe hymselfe, over alle and alle,
Had chose hys mxer principalle
in bir, that was his iestynge place."
The Boke of the Duchesse at the 1004th
and in Bishop Hall's Satires, Book
Y, Sat. I, at the 33d line we have :
"While freezing Matho, that for one lean
Wont termeeach Tenne the Terme of Ilil
arie, May now, in sted of those his simple fees,

rratt's Hall vol. x. page 358.
and again in the first Satire of Book
IV, we see the same word in another
" Like to a merchant s deot role new de-
When some crack'd Misorn crost his book
Pratt's Hall vol. x. page 327.
And last, but not least, in the "Ta
ble" or Index of the II Institute,
Edition of 1681, there is one division
referring to " manners" though Lord
Coke, following the Law French
spells in monnor or mannovt in the text
of the work.
Of course it is unnesessary to ob
serve that nothing is more common
in Shakspeare than to find the most
glaring inconsistences of time and
place ; and it is not more strange to
hear the Prince of Demark alluding
to an English custom, than at the
marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta
to hear 01 nuns and cloisters.
There is another point which I
would not press, b it which certainly
confirms my view, that Shakspeare
had the customs of the English
manors in his mind ; and that is the
rseofthe word "nature" in the
preceding part of the sentence.
When we remembor that such is his
familiarity with the technicalities of
the Common Law, that many have
supposed he had studied that science
before wring lor the stage, it is cu
rious to observe that the ordinany
epecies of tenure existing in the
manorial demesnes was that of ten
ant by villein service, and the law
term for a villein was ISativus.
This much I feel bound to say in
defense of the old poet whom some
body r other is all the time trying to
cheat us poor county people out of.
Now it is Wm. Holmes, proving that
he never existed and that Lora Bacon
wrote his plays; and now the Local of
the Journal tells us that we have al
this time been hearing his voice and
not understanding what he said.
Either war we must lose what all
this time we have prided ourselves

prone to repel any appropriation of its

The Wilson Plamdealee of last week
in an article on this subject, gives a
full account of the C arkee judicia
outrage to which we alluded in our
last. This case is a potent argument
against the elective system and ill as
trates the baseness to which ever the
e mine will descend when it depends
for its support upon popular favor
The Pamdeaer says :
" In this connection we feel it to
be our painful duty to allude to
case which occurred in this place on
Thursday of last week. A Mr. Bur
ford, a white man, was deputized by
the bhenti 01 Ldgecombe county, to
bring a colored prisoner from that
county to this place, to appear before
Judge Clarke, upon a writ of habeas
corpus sued out by Attorney. The
prisoner was delivered to the consta
ble or deputy, Burford, already
handcuffed, or "in irons" if you
please, and so brought upon the cars
to this place, but the irons were
t ikon off hef-re he whs brought into
the j resence of J udge Clarke, by the
Sheriff of Wilsjn county, and it
seems probable that the Judge could
only have known of their having been
used at all by report from some
source, to us unknown. It appeared
that in offering resistance to the
officer before he was delivered to Bur
ford, theprisorer fully justified the
use of the handcuffs. But when the
prisoner was brought before Judge
Clarke the Judge did not seek to
ascertain by inquiry from the officer
the cause of it being found necessary
to put irons upon him, the prisoner,
but seized the opportunity to denounce
Mr. Bui ford for thus "insulting"
him, the Judge, on account of his,
the Judge's political opinions. The
Judge in this denunciatory harangue
said that Burford would not have
brought the prisoner in irons " had
he, been a white man." This and
similar language used by Judge
Claike on the occasion, upon such
provocation, rather in the absence of
any provocation whatever, at once
appears to at least ninety-nine of
hundred men of ordinary common
6ense as witnout justincation and
therefore purely, or iupurely, dema
gogical. It was all said by Judge
Clarke n a passionate, iunous man
ner, such as might have been credit
able to an actor in a third rate
theatre, and concluded by requirine
Burford to appear before him at 2 j
o'clock p. m within about 5 hours
to show cause why an attachment
tor contempt of Court should not
issue ajaiust I iuv At the time an
pointed, the affidavit of Mr. Burford
was read by his Attorney setting
foTth that no contempt was intened,
auu mat ne naa aenverea tne priso
ner to tne eneritt or Wilson county
just, as the prisoner was delivered to
him by the bherib of Edgecombe
Judge Clarkereplied immediately, te
the readiug of tiie affidnvit the
8 worn statement of Burfofd corrobor
ated by the sworn statement of the
Mayor of Rocky Mouut that he.
Clarke, "didn't believe it," that the
Mayor of Rooky Mount was "of the
same party, to which Burford be
longed. He then asked a gentleman
of the bar if Mr. Burford was a fool
and made some other insulting
remarks of a like character, deferring
turtner consideration ot the case until
the next morning, because, he said,
his 'indignation was getting the
better of him. This is enough of the
Burford affair to show the spirit and
temper of the Judge's action. Be
sides discharging the duty of inform
ing the people of an act so deserving
condemnation, it is sufficient for our
purpose here if it shall appear in
part why it i- that the better portion
of the publio feel justified and cannot
avoid entertaining many times a sen
timent of real contempt for Court, a
contempt which has and will . swell
up in tbetr bosoms and ran oat at
their mouths when they see, hear
and read of such cases of these. It
is furthermore desirable ths.t the
faots shall be known, from whioh it
must clearly appear that a change in
the system of choosing judical officers
is highly important for the welfare of
the people, the good of society.'
