Displacement of the Southern
Element fhom Political Life?a
I Lament for the Departed Dioni*
ty of American Statesmanship.
' The steady transformntion of our Re
public into n ring public may be as
cribed, in uo small degree, to the dis
placement of-un clement in the body
politic which was never appreciated at
its true valuo in the better days of our
national virtue. It was thcu decried
and almost bated by the New England,
nud nearly the whole Northern, mind.
The same mind now seems to think thai
the suppression of that element has been
ii triumph for the cause of freedom, truth
and purity. Indeed, i ts entire extinction
is regarded as a countnnnntion devoutly
to bo wished. This sentiment lias bc
como so prevalent that it may subject
one to the charge of disloyalty to regret
an influence which wrought so power
fully in shaping the character of the re
public in its first and best years has been
displaced by another more popular.?
''Dowti with the aristocracy!" is the
watchword of the social Democracy, both
in England and America ; and the same
*<?*y is passing through other countries.
! This cry does not mean down with men
v> ho have made themselves richer than
I the hereditary aristocracy by sweating
(Hit vast fortunes from the toil and in
I dustry of a single generation, but down
I with historical or old families of the
I country, who have retained iu their pos
j i*'.'Sriio!i estates purchased centuries ngo at
billing or two nn acre, and to which
r/ich century added an increased value.
rVwu with men who have conic to large
Ij&jjiies by this slow; process of accretion^
ifPTinvve mlt^juViipe<i into growt"wenIth
:by speculation iu stocks, or by trading
or manufacturing enterprise like "the
great majority of rich people.
Now, the worst sin of a landed or he
reditary aristocracy, in popular estima
tion, is their esprit de corps, or that
pride of order which leads them to feel
it derogatory to their dignity to engage
personally in trade or iu those business
entcrprisesi which other men of wealth
pursue. Then this feeling becomes ad
ditionally obnoxious by stimulating what
they call a "high sense of honor," a hind
[of horror or contempt for small and
mean acts and ways of life and thought,
for a trafhVuigspirit and habit of mind,
and for the everlusting talk about the ir
repressible dollar. It is these preten
sions, this carriage nnd pose of mind and
life, moro than their absolute wealth,
that renders an aristocracy of this order
so repugnant to the popular mind, espe
cially in America. For there is no
country in the world where men compass
sea, land and lire with more avidity for
the aristocracy of abstract wealth than
among us. Our railroad kings and mer
chant princes, stockjobbers nnd other po
tentates iu our moneyed world, constitute
an aristocracy as rieh in dollars as the
nobility and gentry of England, and these
enjoy u public estimation nnd exert nn
I influence which firo thousands with tho
I ambition to attain the same position by
tho same or more <|iiestionablo means.
Thus nn aristocracy of sheer wealth,
however acquired, short of absolute crime,
is the most popuh.r order in American
society. And the more this aristocracy
retains and exhibits the spirit of what
the French cal r0uroeoi8e, the more
popular and influential it becomes, be
cause it remains in Affinity, nnd on the
same level of thought nnd purpose, with
tho great multitude of moncy-seckcrs.
Now, to a thoughtful, observant mind,
nothing can bo more evident and more
disquieting than the fuet that this kind
of aristocratic roukokoisk I ns come to
the front as a ruling power in this coun
try. It is a moneyed aristocracy that
think:-, plans and acts in the fullest spir
it of Huuroeoisk, without nny preten
sion to that high sense of honor or punc
tilious esprit de corps which governs
tho doportmcnt of an hereditary or
landed gentry. And it is a hard thing
to say or bclievo, but nn honest mind
must believe it true, that this hour
okoike regime only came iuto power at
the suppression of that Southern aristoc
racy which we so energetically denounced
when it exi.nted in the full strength of its
inilucucc. Scarcely anything was or
could bo more distasteful Or even hateful
to us than the carriage, sentiment and
self arrogated position of that proud and
pretentious aristocracy which adopted tho
spirit and deportment of the English no*
bility and gentry. But ono who looks
back over tho history of the country from
its birth as a nation must now see and
own that tho influence of this southern
aristocracy was an elemcut of immense
value in shaping the character of our
public men nnd political life. The exist
ence of many things is only realized by
their temporary absence. For nearly
ten years the South as a political power
has been withdrawn from tbo Union. It
has been ruled, repressed nnd stifled in
its old character and influence by the
worst kind of carpet-bagging bouk
geoisk. During this demoralizing iik
gime, it has been shorn of all the locks
of its power on the national government
nnd public men of the country. It has
not sent to Washington a single repre
sentative of its old historical families, no
Calhoun, nor Clay, nor Beuten, nor Ber
ricn. None of its old names have an
swered to the roll-call iu cither house at
the eapitol. None of its old chivalry, its
high sense of honor, has been represented
by the newly imported men who have
pretended to answer for the South. The
spirit which she boasctd, and which we
denounced, has ceased to act upon the
political morality of tho nation. Per
haps tho whole Northern mind rejoices
at this emancipation. We are now show
ing the world, and proving to ourselves,
what we arc doing and can do without
the influence of a Southern aristocracy,
as wc called, it.
Yes, wc have shown to the world and
to ourselves what wc can do as a nation
without tho influence of the Southern
I mind ; without the pretentious uehn airy '
and "high seuse of honor," and contempt
of small and crooked ways which the
"first fumilics of Virginia" ami other
Southern States boasted of. We have
shown what the trade spirit, unchecked
b\ the influence of such chivalry, can do
when it pervades the entire nation, dom
inating national and State legislation,
aud touching with its golden wand the
highest court of justice iu the land. We
have seen how this great republic has
been transmuted into a ringpublic, while
the South has been reduced to a political
noneutity ; what a concentric series of
rings, what "wheels within a wheel," as
in the prophet's vision, have been pro
duced from the centre to the circumfer
ence of the Union.
Look at the Luccession of these rings:
first, the "primary meeting" ring, or the
village caucus or halt'a dozen politicians
making up their "slate" around a gro
cer's 2ask of unions or dried apples.?
Follow the series of political rings from
that primary meeting of free and inde
pendent citizens up through tho Stotc
conventions to the Congressional caucus
nnd lobby at Washington. Then take
the corporation rings, nnd follow them
from the centre to the circumference of
their power. Do the t-ame with land
rings, gold rings, wheat rings, traffic and
transportion rings, aud tariff rings.?
Look nt the great railway rings, that
touch with their perimeters either ocean ;
at the Credits Mobilicr they organize,
I the legislation they control, and the leg
islators they demoralize and smirch with
the pitch of dishonest transactions See
what men in the highest places of trust
have sohl and soiled the characters tho
public have given them by busting to bo
rich by treachery or fraud. See how
the fine gohl of political and commercial
probity have been dimmed by these trans
actions, and the suspicions they engender.
What the French mean by jiurgeowf,
wc express by shoddy ; aud no word in
our language has a more uniformly ac
cepted meaning than this of recent coin
age. We all know whats bodily means in
toxlilo fabrics. But never did it fill
such a place or play such a part in a
soldier's coat as it docs in our paper
money, in our paper characters on
'Change, and in tho paper moralities
which the last few years havo witucssed.
It may seem disloyal to our republican
institutions to say it,.but wueui it is said,
let the candid reader. 8ec if lie
prove it; what this countiy moot need*
at the present juncture is the clement
that lots been displaced by the political
ostracism of the South. I do not say we
need a Southern aristocracy, bUt'Wi n?ed
one which shall resemble and exercLic
some uf its best characteristics, and'stratr**
wo need imperatively, North and South) '
East aud West. Wc need a class with

the South has contributed to the strac

?gU An interesting interview* hrisfati**
ly taken place between Mr. Scmraes, of
the Alabama, and a Reporter of t^p(
"New York .Herald," who, however,
failed to extract from that gentleman,
any decided expression of opinion on
political affairs. On the reporter intro
ducing himself and asking the favor of a
few minutes' conversation, Mr. Semmcs
"straightened himself up," and in a dig
nified manner replied:
"I am nothing but a plain citizen
practicing 'In wljiAhil) a in a: Tlv.i,
in 4 to say that could interest anybody
politically; I have nothing to do with
.the politics of our State, and I wish to
have nothing to do with politics what-;
"Rut, Admiral," rejoined the .reporter
meekly, "it is not politics so much that '
I wish to ask you about. I merely wish
to ascertaiu your opinion ns to the des
tiny of the country?whether it is going
to remain a Republic, or will it be con
verted into an empire?"
Semmcs.?"That, sir, remains to bo
seen. It is very uncertain what the des
tiny of the country will be."
Reporter.?"You have doubtless seen
the discussion iu the newspapers on tho
subject of Ciesarism ?"
Scnnnea.?"Yes, sir, I have."
Reporter.?"Do you think General
Grant will be elected to a third term V*
Semiucs.?I have no^doubt that, if
General Grunt wishes it, he can bo qlec
ted to a third term, contrary as it is to
the prcced n'.s'of the country."
Reporter.?"In that event, do you be
lieve it would be a march to Ein
Semmcs.?"That I am unable to sa)v.
It is ns I said before, uncertain, and lies
hidden iu the womb of the future, and
only t<5 be decided by events.
As the Admiral said this, he turned
rather abruptly, ended the conversation,
and walked oil* with his hands behind his
luck, his umbrella dangling from them,
and the "patch of bald at the crown of
his bend plainly visible, under the leaf of
his elevated chapkau.
A Scandalous Scene in Count.?
Ex-Sheriff Mackcy and County Solicitor
Buttz. had a sharp passage of words yes
terday in the Criminal Court. The cx
sheritf told the Solicitor very bluntly
while arguing a case that he ought to he.
in the penitentiary, where he had been
sentenced to go, but whence ho had man
aged to escape. The solicitor retorted
by telling tho ex-sheriff that ho would
slap his face were he not in the court
room ; whereupon the cx-Stioriff invited
him to step out of tho door and executo
his threats. These thrusts Created, a stir,
and for awhile it was thought that a ditti
cultywniight ensue, hut up to last night
tho public peace had not been broken
with either digits or derringer. It was
rumored, however, that there had been
a hiief collision tit the corner of Market
and Meeting streets?"News & Courier."
