The nation has passed through the
onleal of civil war triumphantly and
gloriously. The rebellion has been sup- j
pressed, treason has been crushed, the
Union has been restored, and, on the!
National Anniversary which has just
passed, the whole country united in
j thankfulness and joyful celebration in I
honor of these events. There is no j
i longer a cause for the bitterness of feel- j
ing which so long existed between the
North and the South, and which linally
culminated in civil war. Slavery, the,
festering clement in the body politic
which caused an estrangement between j
die two sections, lias been eradicated, !
and its fruits?sectional animosity and
hatred?should no longer exist. At tin's
point it is well that the people should
take a calm and intelligent view of tkcj
present position of the nation, and care-j
j fully consider the course that is best
adapted to its future prosperity and
!greatness. The war is a thing of the

Colonel Pekjiy was a delegate to the
famous Charleston Convention of 1SG0;
and when the secessionists bolted, to
break up the session of the body, he
alone of the South Carolina delegation
refused to join in the movement. He
remained in his place, and continned to
act there as a South Carolina representative,
although a heavy pressure was
brought to bear to induce him to withdraw,
and make the action of his State
undivided on the side of secession. His j
linn refusal to do so drew upon him the
vindictive hostility of the secessionists, i
who crowded the galleries of the Con-1
veution Hall to hiss him whenever he
voted or spoke.
Since the war has been in progress a
letter from Col. Perry, in favor of pacification
on the basis of reunion, was
published and copied extensively into
Northern journals. There is scarcely
room to doubt the sincere Unionism of a
man whose record presents such evidence
as his affords of fidelity to that cause.
His selection to take in cnurge me execu-1
tive affairs of South Carolina is, on this
score, by far the best that could be made
from among the live persons recommended

the ablest man of the five, and perhaps
now a reliable Union man, has a bad
secession record, although not of the j
worst stripe of the South Carolina men.

The Speech delivered l?v Heury Win
IcT Davis, a short lillie uiru.e. at Chicago,
:i clear, elaborate and liio-.l lorcioir
statement of tlie negro ilocttim* .ineern
ing negro suffrage. The p. sition v, hich
Mr. Da\is occupies as apiomiucnl and
intliicutial leader of the Kepab!i?'.in pat
ty, entitles his political declarations f"
greater consideration than those ot tin
I'hillips class, tor lie represents a l.nt'e
, influence an I cannot be charged with,
fanaticism. The germ of his doctrine,
however, is the same ;ts that embodied
in the late utterances of Phillips, and
other radicals of e\ cry degree, lie makes
negro suffrage tlie great panacea tor all
the ills of reorganization in the South,
and draws a frightful prospective figure I
of the consequences that, in his opinion,
must ensue without it. In this view he
falls into ihe same error which Inn char
notorized all the oth? r expositors oi tins
doctrine?that the negro element would j
keep the latent rebel element of the
South in subjection, ami wield the bal !
anee of political power in favor of North-1
. ern ideas. Aside from other objections, i
(it would seem to require but little j
' thonghttulncss to see that the i'liec t ct'
such a policy would clearly Lie to aggravate
the evils that are complained of,
rather than to eradicate them. This feature
of the question turns upon the point
whether the mass of the Southern negroes
would vote for or against the late policy *
of their late masters. Unless the negro
nature underwent a remarkable transformation
when the shackles of slavery
were struck from him, he is, in ignorance,
one of (lie most credulous ot the
human family; easily deceived and imposed
upon. Now, suppose that negro
suffrage was established throughout the
South, what would be the result? Evidently
the negroes would be "as clay
in the hands ot the potter." The masters
for whom they labor would have but little
difficulty in moulding them, either
by persuasion or threats, to their own

not reach them to coumeract this impositiou.
If Mr. Davis d sires to make the
benefits of negro enfranchisement apparent
to the people, he must first indicate
sonic encouragement i; the present mental
status of the negro. This subject he
studiously evades, with the exception of
a single reference to the fact that they
fought under Yankee leadership, and
would probably vote in the same way.?
Cut Yankee leadership is uot practicable
in the case of voting. How can they receive
Northern influence when not one in
live hundred can read ? Herein is an illustration
of the importance of making
them intellectually capable of voting before
giving them the franchise. If they
were competent to read, they might be
influenced by Yankee leadership, or
at least know what they were putting in4"%

Davis, like the emanations from other
leading radicals, is strongly denunciatory
of the policy pursued by President
Johnson with reference to reorganization,
although his language is more closely
guarded and devoid of abuse. Its delivery
at this time, in the West, is doubtless
intended as an opening of the suffrage
issue in that quarter, and as a part
of the programme for agitating this subject
into political prominence.
