ENFRANCHISEMENT.
We cheerfully give place in our col
nuins to-day to the letter of "Colored
MLa," received from a gentleman in
Louisville, in reply to a few remarks in
this department of our paper, two or
three weeks ago, ( n the subject of the
above caption. Our tinid friend thinks
our sentiments "dangerons" in the ex
treme, and like many other people, who 1
look at a grave question from a single
standpoint, he fails to discover how we
can entertain the opinion we expressed,
except from our innocence of the danger
of our course. We shall not enter this
field of discussion. We turn to the ar
gaunents presented to our attention.
Our friend seeks to annihilate our pro
position by a reference to the action of
the Federal Government towards those
late in rebellion, duriiq the prcos'e*' of
Reconstruction, and proceeds, as if we
had saed that disfranchisement was op
pressive in tofo. The Federal authority
W:tas nuquestomably right in adopting all
the means in its power to re-establish and
re-habilitate the Union.
But reconstruction is now completed
as far as Congressional Legislation wil'
effect it, and we argue that after the pur
pose hris been accomplished for which
disfranchisement was iniposed, itself
should cease to exist. And our friend
utterly fails to produce any argument
that holds water, to prove our position
untenable. But says he, witness the
outrages, proscriptionsi, murders and the
fearfnl dangers we are in if the Rebel
Democracy get into power, through thii
act of clemency. See that they stand ii.
dired opposition to the several amend
ments to the United States Constitution.
and will rope;.1 or annul tlhm to a cer
tainty if they get into power. Now sa,
we, disfranchiseiient was not imnp sed as
a remedy for any of these evils, but as ti
measure of safety and preservation of a
nation in a momuenat of great peri'. No,
is it at all calculated to effect any such
purpose. "Tis true, tis pity, and pity
tis, tis true" that till of these outrages
and infinitely more can be eorrectly
charged 1.ozne to Deme cratic venom a'md
hate, and judging the future by the past,
we cani conceive the deplorable conditiot
of our pe ople all over thme country, if this
rainlanit DemocanCy obtmined the mastery
of the Federal (Aovernmieit; and we (10
nut say thast there is io dangur even of
Sis somiewhiat rem its centilgenUcy. But,
is the jan hibitien fronm voting any coan
cuivable rciaedy for the State of things
tkjiictod ? And does our friend not seec
that according to the e.svential principk
of his own presentmnent, a notorious
burgl-ar 4y for iinstance-might be de
tmained iniulinitely iniprisoned after the
expiratxon of his term, because his releais

Nations like society, mast endure the

A.nd alter mall, zis we haxve at other times
said much of the continuauce of the.
"reign of terror" throughout the South,
is justly attributable to the indiffur
enee, the supineness, at heudquarters~.
Crimes iihieh called loudly for punish

the general interest, or to promisseax
iota of secziiity to the Union.
The following merited compliment has
been tran~slated from the Germanae Gae#efft
of Feb. 8, and we cordially give it inmaer
tion to-day.

"ABUSE OF JUDICIAL PRIOCES '" I
-
Pope says--"Med c*thaie with man- t
ners, manners chane with climes; Tenets E
with bxool A and primniles with times." .
And it is astonishing to witness the illus
tration afforded every day of the correct
ness of the poet's estimAte of things.
INot long since there was not a Demo-I
cratic paper in the city, or State, that did
not either openly applaud, or by silence,
negatively approve every opposition
offered to the enforcement of the laws
passed by the Legislatures fron 1$60 to
1870. Now we find these same sheets
deprecating the very things which not
long since they so approved. A city
paper, for instance, heads a recent article
"Abuse of Judicial Process" and unblush
ingly condemns the frequent and injuri
ous issuance of the writs of injunction
and mandauns by the District Courts,
and modestly hints that ordinarily these
writs should not issue, except the parties
against whom they are levelled have an
r opportunity of shewing cause why they
should not issue. This same paper, as
well as every judge whV has so carelessly
been issuing these writs, knows that in no
settled community, in no Court of any
di gnity do writs of injunction, or man
damns issue, in the first instance. The I
rule Xi. prccedes the writ, except in
extraordinary- cases, as for instance, to
stay waste, or where the continuance in
any practice affords prima facie evidence
of working irreparable injury to the ap
plicant. But Lere, until the ereation of
the Eight District Court, and the with
drawal of the power to issue these writs
from the other District Court, the dis
graceoful and wanton issuing of these
wfits in every direction, and against
everybody was applauded by the Demo
cratic press, and " simply because they
were embarrassing to the effectual carry
ing out of Republican Legislation. But
now that the ('o-rts ane shorn of their
"brief authority" we find these journals
waking up to a recognition of the real
lcharacter and objects of these extraor
dinary judicial powers. It might be
munusing, if it were not a little disgusting
to behold the celerity with which some
people can change sides on the same
d question, in any given lxeriod.
The following well merited compli
mnent to Civil Sheriff C. 8. Sauvinet, we

FOUR CORREMPONDENCE.]
REVIEW OF "ENFRANCIISE
MENT."
[von raz womsuxux.]
Mr. Editon-I A4 d i yr valahble
journal, No. 10, an editorial under the
caption of "Enfraach9ement," in which
I find advanced sentiments whidh to me
appear dangerous, and to which I beg a
small space to present a few objections.
You may, "The ditreachisement* * *
degenerates into a weapon of tyranny, if
prolonged after the relations of the States
with the Federal Government have been
satisectorily restored."
Now sir, permit me to inquire, have
not the Federl Government in restor
ing those States and omitting the en
franchisement of those "rebels," given
testimony to the Nation, that they were
not yet ready to give those men their
sanction to vote ? Was it not in the
power of the Federal Government, if they
felt the nation in all its parts "protected
and safe," to remove all political disabil
ities, if they were satisfied with the spi
rit and temper of all the men of those
States ?
Suppose a prisoner in his cell was to
have the news borne to him, that the
State was so well pleased with all the
prisoners in the State prison, as to re
lease them all ; and yet he was held fast
in his cell, and all the balance turned out,
would he not be convinced, after he had
appealed to the Government by all pos
sible means, that the State was not satis
fled with him, for he was not released ?
Just so, it appears to me, about the Fed
eral Government. It had not good, nor
sufficient evidence, that all the men of
those States were loyal; and they ad
mnit the loyal part, and those who blind
ly were led into the ctror, but left
another part to prove themselves by
their works.
The great trouble to my mind is, that
we, as colored men, place too much con
fdence in those who have had the con
trol over us in other days, without re
quiring a euficient guarante for what is
promised; but Uncle HSn, who has been
dealing with all kinds of wise men for
the last hundred years, must be consid
. ered better qualified to estimate those
grave questions than we who were just
I born a few days ago !
0 And it may be well for as to hold on
till we have, at least, a few years growth,
before we talk too loud of "tyranny" be
cause some stubborn hearted men wont
bow to the mild request of the Federal
Government.
But again, You sir, call in question
"the fears of devoted Republicans" if the
rebels all over the Country are permitted
to vote."
The very fact, that devoted Repub
- licans are, "as you say," in direct opposi
tion to this doctrine" is enough to make
a every colored man fBee from it as a man
- would from the hissing viper.
I Upon what grounds do those Republi
r cans base their fears, sir!"
We must admit it is on the grounds of
Political ciperience. An experience that
is to them, by reason of repeated strug
-gles, mn tears, sweat and blood, that
causes them to view, in some small de
gree, the end from the beginning. A
contest that sir, has desolated hundredi
of thousands of firesides, and mlled ovem
a million of grave. with the Bower of the
nation, to secure to us the Rights we
hold, alone by the power vested in a Re
publican Congress and Senate. And ii
Sthe rebels all over the Country are allow
Sed to vote, and the number of eolored
rvoters that dont see any danger in a
I Democrat wore than a Republican, and
- others that can be intimidated from vot
ing ,at all in those States, is there not
just cause for fear!"
t You say, "ok this result we have no
- fears."
INow Mr Editor, permit me to enquire
aof you, what security has the colored man
Sihspesa odtooutside of the Re
I pub~ieaa Party ? And what would have
been the force of Congreusional enact
- aments if they had not had the sword to
t enforce them in our favor?
'All must admit that not an amendment
Sknown as the thirteenth, fourteenth and
e lifteenth would have been worth to in.
Sthe paper they are written on, if a mi
I litary power had not enforced them. And
Seven where it was not brought in requl
e sition, may it not have been from the
gfact, that if needed, it would be forth
I coming. that certain parts have obeyed
I their behest. so calmly?
y Permit me to say there is great need
L of fe r outhat subjeet.
t With what party would those "rebels"
I vote? You will answer the Democratic,
y Have not both p'arties of the deinocacy
rn declared in Congress, inm the Senat*, in
r St.ate ani caunt ea that, all the amcnd.
manta to thy Ctnstitution by which we
have all our rights, are unconstitutional,
and nulk and void;
I Have sot the RepublicaaParty conten
ded against al the Sorce democracy could
rally frcf the first gun fiat fired on
fort Suner till the stifieation of the
crowning act of the fifteenth amend
ment?
And afer bowing triumphed in the field
of battle, and then to the ballot have they
proceeded in steady step, for the voice of
free people to pans upon their acets, and
like the voice of many voters have they
spoken, in endorsing the great Liberty
loving Party" and yet, you sir, say, they
are afraid of danger to us, and you may,
you have no fears ?
As for my humble part, if I was so
fearless, after all that I have seen in the
great changes in national affairs, I
would think that my case waslike a little
child charmed by the rattle of a rattle
snake, and only was devoid of fear be
cause it did not know its danger.
The question of our right should aU be
regarded as sacred by all parties in this
nature-before we can boast ; but that is
not the case now. For it was only on
the admission of Senator Revels that it
was boldly declared by one of the oldest
Senators from this State "That the
Republican Party had well beware, for
they, would go to bed some of these
nights and awaken up in the morning
and find the Democrats in power, and
they would skake off those chains [ne
gro rightul as a lion shakes the dew
from his main. And colored men are
not afraid. Better for us to fear in time,
than to mourn our folly when too late.

NIL NISI BONUM.
Genetal Lee has been dead two months,
Farragut four, Charles Dickens in,,
Thaddeus Stevens nearly two years; and
yesterdayas to day's and to moerow's
papers still remonstrate against oar di.
sussing their eareers and chaeters on
the ground that uch sacrieges 'deseera
to the dead." The question wears, when
do the dead pass into history? When
may we bow out the tedious funerml eu
logist and bow in the historian? How
long must the career remain, by custom
and courtesy, the adesive property of
whorshippers? When wig the character,
which yesterday was the world's common
property, be again open to study, ap
preciation, and judgment? 'During how
many hours, days, months, or years,
shall the pen of the panegyrist denounce
the quil of the eritie?
What is true to-day of R. E. Lee, and
Dickens and Thad. Stevens, will anon be
true of Jet. Davis, Ben. Butler, General
Grant, and Bennett, as it was, not long
since, of Clay, Benton, and Calhoun
their more ardent friends and partisans
will stigmatize as ghouls and vampires
all wh) take a less glaring view of their
dead heroes, and who discriminate in
their respect and admiration. When
Websier died, and Theodore Parker criti
cised his career far leis severely than
while the great Massachusetts stateman
was living, Webster's friends were thun
derstruck; but when the divine in his
turn died, it was for Parker's friends to
be astounded at the "impious and sacri
legions" sentiments of the friends of
Webster. But while much respect is due
to the grief of family, kinsman, friends,
and, and even of political and social ad
mirers, yet, if we concede too much to
the event of death itself, Probst and
Traupmann might for a time become
respectable public characters, after their
well merited hanging. And, in the se
cond plhee, while no CM. e tin be act as
securing a public character from free dis
cussion, so we cannot declare of oll nior
lui that we are to say nothing of them
but praise; for, according to that rule.
we should have to temporarily rebuke
censure even of Judas and Nero.
Of course, the reader has all along had
in mind the nia im of antiquity on this
subject; in fact. "say nothing but good of
the dead" is a rule which perpetually
comes to remembrance, and rarely
without provoking a sense of its injus
tice. Only a few months since a writer in
the "Saturday Review" felt the need
)f defending the ancient saw,as he
did in an article which was cer
tainly ingenious and interesting, though
very lame in logic. De moriuis nad nisd
'elnum-must we follow that rule? A
thought of the villains, brutes, and hy
pocrites of history and experience, shows
the absurdity of a strict interpretation;
and that one conceded, common sense
applies the rule only with reservations
and exceptions, even to saints and heroes.
Liko other adages, the maxim de uaortuis
must be taken with discretion, not literal
ly and blindly.
The happy medium lies, perhaps, be
tween the brutality of reckless abuse on
the one hand, and, on the other, that
sickly sentimentality which would shield
knavery and cruelty, as well as honest
but egregious error, from pointing their
proper mornl. All are level in the grave,
but so are they not in history; and, ii
there be any difference between right and
wrong, between honor and dishonor, be
tween truth and error, betwqen strength
and weskness,between a quick eomaacaence
and a seared consecice, between pereep
tion and attainmmnt of wlat is desirable,
and misguided gropings in blunders and
crimcs, we must make the distinction.
To obliterate differences so broad, to
stifle convictions aiways hitherto express
ed, to weakly concede w~hat has lone
been conscientiously denied, is to conifaae
the minds of all who wait on othe!. for
the information of opinions. Thereis an
English saying which comes naturally
from the falsity of the Latin maxim, "It
will he all the same a hundred year.
hence." The bodies of churla and
heroes, rogues and saints, cowards and
martyrs, are alike in dust, but notso with
their immnortal parts, which, accordingly,
are not to he levelled in the same weakly-1
charitable and meaningless juigment,
for we dishonor those whom we esteem'
in keeping silence over their oppo
sites.
The germ of truth in the adage is that
all bitterness and unjust, rackles~he.. Of
criticisma should sink inthe gray. WThe
evil thxit men dio," says Shakespeare,
through the mask of Anatony, "livesafter
them; the good is oft interred with their
boncs." Against this malignant extreme
the maxim de rnortui,. warns us. We are
no longer to hold a man responsible for
the alleged aims or blunders at tlw 4
he espomeed, but to let him heucefort
stand, when freed from the ties ofb,
cietyin his own individuality. Re are
to judg.. hint as far as possible hb b,.
motives, not his achievements, and aith
a great-hearted charity for the infiuenc1
of nurture and circumstanee. Perhaps
the adage, therefore, would have bet
kess deceptive had it referred not so InUeh
to icat is said as to Jhow it is said; had it
declared, for example, not "Spentk notri.
ing of the dead but good," but "Tull not
unjustly of the dead."
