Col. Met'lure, the able editor of the
Philadelphia Times, utters a truth,
which must impress itself upon every
relied ing mind, when he says that
"a new generation that had no par
ticipation in the terrible coullict has
come up and III led half the places of
those who witnessed the most san
guinary struggle of modern history,
and those who yet survive must soon,
ntj^the latent, give place to the
younger blood that is pressing in
Twenty years have1 passed since
the breaking out of the war, and
those who stood around the camp
lires and in the line of battle oh
either side, who have not already
passed away, are growing old, and
will soon be placed under the sod
with their noble ?Colnrades whose
deeds of daring ami unselfish devo
tion to what they believed to be
right should ever be cherished as
the proud heritage of Americans.
The poor soldiers who bore the brunt
of Wie battle knew little of the sel
fish motives and ambitious schemes
of thoughtless leaders, but possessed
noble souls. This nobility is infus
od into the young blood of their off
spring. They ask not that the ris
ing geneiatioti should brood over
their wrongs. The universal desire,
at least, so*far as tho^South isjjcon
cerned, is, that the past should be
buried. Untier the inspiration of
such siient teachings a young, liber
al atld^progressivc general ion is fast
taking the place of the old. Parti
sans and fogies of the Cameron and
Toontbs stripe are pushed to the rear.

A ( A I S . OF OUU POL1MCAL DIS
Insincerity and dishonesty of ex
pression is tlie most fruitful source of
disorder in any eountiy. Public
opinion is ion !.- up of individual
op i in i i , u id. if the latter is false, the
former will be so loo. And llii- false
public opinion causes most of the
troubles of Nations. Most public
troubles of Nations. M?sl public
leading public < pinion they follow it.
Titey do not consider what is best
for thircountry, but w hat will tickle
the public ear. Popularity is ll.c
aim of politicians, and they will
much more readily say w hat peoplu
want than by opposing their views iu
many cases destroy their power.
Some of our most honored leaders arc
looking only to self aggrandizement,
and care little for the welfare of the
Kepnldie. We Itsive no doubt that
some of our greatest public calami
lies have come upon us, because our
leaders, instead of moulding public
sentiment, WvTo corruptly following
it. This may have had much to do
with our lute war, and the numerous
ills which have followed in its train.
Unfortunately this tendency is
against freedom of thought and
speech. Ost racism and intolerance
whips; every f hing into cert a in fixed
lines, beyond which, if we go, we
pass outside of the charmed circle.
Such is not the atmosphere in which
honest vigorous I bought thrives.
The safety of a country depends up
on lite honestly expressed sentiments
of its citizens. But forced sentiment
is not apt to bo honest sentiment.

and is now held for t rial.
The brilliant intellect and matured
wisdom of (ten. Gary is missed in
our State Senate.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE !
While the sanctimonious eyes of
the North are turned up in holy hor
ror over the frauds of the laud, let
these saints never forget who first
placed this dark stain upon Ameri
The unerring linger of the histo
rian points to the (Electoral Commis*
sion as the pyramid of fraud from
which the virus has permeated all
through the veins of the body poli
tic- until the whole is corrupt. It
was here that the votes of three
States were stolen, and from hence
the fatal dogma issued that we can
not go behind the returns.
Again, the Republicans of South
Carolina must not forget that it is
held to be susceptible of proof that
Green was elected Governor.and that
Chamberlain was given his place by
a false count
We do not oiler these facts as a
palliation for fraud any where.
Fraud is a stain upon any party
which practices it, and success ob
tained by it can never be permanent.
It is well, however, for it to be
clearly seen and always understood
how it first came into our politics, in
order that there might be a general
uprising in all parts of our land for
its eradication and cure. The head
of the terrible cancer first appealed
at the capital of our country, and it
is here that the prnniii?; knife should
first be inserted.
HOW TO BRING* OUT THE SOUTH.
Our farmers need more of the
spirit of enterprise and progress.
They are doing very well, but they
are ion satisfied to stand at a certain
point and not go beyond it. They
have made grea* advances in farm
ing, and are making now more than
they over did in slavery. But there
is another step in the line of pro
gress that they must make. We
have far the advantage of the North
in tin- manufacture of cotton. Wo
must convert our toUoti seed into
yarn on our farms by means of the
( h ineilt Attachment. An out lay of
from $2000 to $0(100 dollars will
accomplish it, and there are bun
dreds of farmers in our County who
can do it. The net profit oil a hun
dred b:iI s according to Mr. Cock
rill, the Vice-sidcut of the Mis
sissippiilMnntcrs Association, will be
Ilia Well digested letter tri the
Little Kock. Ark., (t'a.vtt? Mr. Cock
rill, urges as t he true policy of Soul h
em planters the manufacture of their
own cotton product into yarns upon
their own plantations, instead of
sidling I he raw material to the manu
facturers of Old and New Knglaud.
lie estimates the cotton product at
live million bales, which in its raw
slate is worth $220,000,000. When
spun into yarn, it is worth $450,000,
0(H). The manufacture of this largo
crop at homo would make it worth
to the South just as much again as
it now sells for in open market. As
Mr. Coekrill truthfully says: "The
most important movement for the
South is fcr every planter in it to
turn his attention to this subject
and aid the removal of the spindles
to the cotton fields, and s| in the cot
ton into yarn and double its value
and thereby double his income."
We haven soil naturally more fer
tile than I he North, a better climate
and heller water power. They make
money on manufactures, and they
have to get t he cot ton from t he South.
We have the cotton at our doors. I'm
t he .spindles on cur farms and WC
liaveonly to bring the seed cotton
from the fields to the mills on the
same place. The cost of ginning too
is saved. It would be better too if
we would even go a step further and
convert our yarn into cloth. We
need the making of everything with
in ourselves. As matters now stand,
we are got ling nothing for what we
make and pav ing through our nose
to the North lor everything we wear
and use. Progress in this line will
make the South independent. We
are glad to see that the hall is start
el. Factories are going up, and the
people are beginning to see that from
hence collies our material prosperity,
ami with material, prosperity, every
thing else Will be added.

Mr. Ruckucr of Missouriu intro
duced a bill in' Congross lust week
calling upon the President to open
negotiations with Mexico or the Con
trol American States for the pur
chase and cession to the United States
of a Tcritory for the voluntary colo
nization of the colored population of
the United States.
The climate of this portion of
America is very much the same as
that of Africa, the home of the eoler
cd-man, and it would seem that he
ought to thrive in this locality. When
we consider the political troubles to
which we have been exposed in the
past, and which threaten us in the
future without some change in our
population, we look with much favor
upon t his scheme, and hope that the
bill will be pressed.
The good order and prosperity of
our Southern country depends upon
nothing more than upon the equali
zation of our population by alternate
immigration and emigration on the
part of the two races.
Wo don't believe iu anything com
pulsory. The emigration should be
entirely voluntary. This would be
humane, und would be offering to the
colored people what many of them
say they want. We have boon cruel
in our treatment of the Red man. Let
the light of all advanced civilization
shine more mildly upon the illguided
mm ? c.i -
Gen. Logan introduced a bill iu
Congress last week, the purport of
which was to put Grant on the re
tired list of the army with the rank
and pay of General, to be called into
service whenever occasion demands.
Tin bill vv.n.-, leferred to the Com
mittee on the tniiitarv.
It seems a little ridiculous that
after C rani bus had two terms ill the
White House, a period of eight
years, with ? salary most or all of the
time of $.")(',000 a year, thel residents
salary being doubled during his term,
that he should need further public
support. If ho was poor after his
tetmofolll c, he may l ave given up
his little j it t around the world. If
he did not benefit himself by this
jaunt, he certainly did not benefit the
American people by impressing the
world with American brilliancy.
Still, Southern Congressmen must
keep silent, or thiy will be renewing
the rebellion. Doubtless Alex.
Stephens will have something to say
iu favor of the bill.
F.. W. M. Mackey again presses
his ease in Congicss, and expects to
occupy O'Connor's seat. 1 he same
lightuwill be made against many oth
er Southern Congressmen, and we
have no doubt, with a partisan Con
gress, that grounds will be claimed
for tin- unseating of a number of
these Southern members. This will
evidently be the Republican tactics to
gain entire control of National af
fairs. The Senate is uncomfortably
close for the Republicans, and ihe
House is also to be thinned out.
