G. "W. AVHITEHEAD,
? PUBUMIER AND BfBINKSS MANAOEH.
ttfX^ We are in no tc?y responsible for the
views or opinions of our Correspondents.
The whole South look with pride
upon General Gordon. During the
war he did his duty gallantly as an
officer of the lost cause, nnd eirco tlid
war ho lins ben? a faithful champion
of tho South iu Congress. Even the
Northern press cannot conceal their
high opinion of him. Although it is
not much of a compliment to say that
he is ono uf the ablest men tn Con
giiess, we believe it will be so admit
ted. He is fluent, graceful, handsome,
sensible nnd eloquent; and, to crown it
all, a man of high-toned Christian
principles. None of the intense ha
tred of tho South which is belched
forth in tho vulgar harangues of But
ler and his crew cause him for a mo
ment to !oso his equilibrium. He
answers their slanderous epithets with
calm and dignified argument, eloquent
on account of truth. He ia no tinie
forving politician, but n broad-mtnded
and broader-hearted statesman, who
will bo marked in history as a great
man in his generation. If we had space
we would give the whole of his recent
speech, but wo must suffice with only
a few short extracts. Ho says in one
Do the Southern people differ so widely
from tho rent of mankind that the laws Cf
action which apply to others are inapplicable
to them? They have the name instincts of
self-defence; the same love of self-govern
ment, of justice, of humanity, of peace and
of law; the same pride of race; the sarriu de -
votion to liberty and detestation of tyranny
which have marked tho Anglo-Saxon race
nnd crowned it with honor at every step of
its progress and in every quarter of tho
globe. Sir, what doca reason teach urf Arc
tho Southern people bo blinded that they
would seek to niaKc an enemy of tho negro,
upon whose labor and good will all'their
prosperity depends ?. Are they so lost to
every impulse of humanity that they would
reek to destry a race to whose fidelity during
the war, when an army was in their midst
, with freedom written upon ita banners, they
entrusted with perfect confidence their .Wives,
their homes and their children?a race
. .which, faithful, docile and Jaw-abiding by
nature, has only been maue arrogant, itg
cressivo and lawless under the tutelage of
bad men in their midst? Such assumptions
are neither suggested by reason nor sup
ported by fact."
And again in concluding:
"But, sir, we have one hope left. Talley
rand said that he knew one who was- wiser
than Voltaire, had more understanding than
Napoleon and all his ministers) and that one
was public opinion."
"Sir, there is a great public opinion in
theso United States--an American sentiment
which is the hope of Louisiana nnd the talis
man of the South. And in the name of
Louisiana and of a common inheritance of
self-government, I appeal from the bar of
the Senate to tlie bar of that American sen
timent. It is higher than senates, more
powerful than parties. It will not permit
us longer to hold out hope to Louisiana only
to doom her to death. - It will not permit
ub longer to whisper in her car the high
pounding words of self-government and of
constitutional law, while these words mean
to her but the pompous trappings wnich
cover the dead body of a prostrate Common
wealth. It will not permit us to longer
hold in vassalage a large body of our fellow
countrymen who are vindicated by their
own words and by your republican commit
tee, and who, when their trials and persecu
tions and wrongs are known, whatever may
have been their mistakes, their follies or
their crime?, will stand vindicated before
the bar of all the future, and of I Inn who
shall judge us all, as furnishing an ex
ample of heroic endurance and of patient
forbearance under wrong unparalleled in
history and luslrous in despair."
Representative Boll, of Georgia, in
his speech on the Louisiana question
made passing mention of nliai/s in
South Carolina. lie said :
" Mr. Speaker, it is af singular thing that
so much horror is manifested at the white
leagues of the South and none against the
black leagues. It is notorious that almost
the entire body of colored voters in the
South are members of oath-hound leagues,
meeting In darkness, and many of them
armed and incited to the most deadly hos
tility to white men by bad men of the rc
mhiicau party for sol fish partisan ends,
tut no word of complaint or rebuke escapes
republican lips, no republican press teems
with denunciations of them, tutu no arm of
federal power is bared for their suppression.
The midnight heavens blush in redness
with the flames of burning dwellings nnd
gin-houses in South Carolina, and the lieu
tenant-general of tlie army advises no sus
pension of the writ of habeas corpus that he
may summarily try the incendiary and pun
ish the arson. Why is this? Is it because
the turpitude of crime consists in the color
of the perpetrator; or is it heenuse it is dona
by those who maintain a negro despotism
over the people of that suflering State ?
Why is there no condemnation of tho black
leaguers iu the South? Is it because they
were organized by adventurers in the inte
rest of the republican paity that they are

ORANGEBUKti AOHICULTURAL SOCIETY.
On last Saturday wc had the pleas
ure of attending a meeting of this So
ciety at tlie Fair building, and we
were more impressed than ever with
ihc practical benefits of such organi
zations for tho dissemination of useful
knowledge and the fostering of a
kindly nnd social feeling among the
agricultural brotherhood. After the
regular business was over, a very in
teresting paper from Dr. Barton was
road, throwing out suggestions and
giving questions for the society to de
bate. Dr. Barton, unfortunately, was
at homo sick, but even in his sickness
he showed, in several substantial ways,
that his heart and all his energies
were with the society.
Mr. John L. Moorer occupied tho
chair and offered to tho society, as a
subject of debate, t wo of the questions
suggested in Dr. Barton's letter, which
brought out a vory interesting and in
structive discussion ns to the proper
distance to plant corn, and gave tho
experience of the members on the sub
ject of ont?!. The debate was partici
pated in by Messrs. Thos. E. Dukes,
M. L. Baldwin, Jas. H. Fowles, h. R.

Moorer, John Snlley,-Riley,
Thann,-Mnckay, and others.
After this the society went into the
discussion of a lunch given by Presi

fore this, we can well imagine that it

is no doubt if so much humor and
pleasantry occasionally cropped out
even in the discussion of dry corn and
