THE DAli iENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1B68.
SPIRIT OF THE PRESS.- EDITORIAL OPllHOKS OF TUB LKAMtlO JOttR-tAM UPOlt CCKKBNT T0P1CH COMPILCD BVKBT DAT FOR THE BVENIHO TBnBORAPH. The Unreconstnietpd Stales and tlic Elcc tiou. " From (hi Jf. T. Time. The joiDt resolution ah'ob iu Jaljr beoame lair, notwithBtaudiDg to PiWdent'B veto, pro vides that none of the; Stated whose inhabi tants were latel in rebellion shall be allowed' to vote in the Preflideiitial election, unless they shall have become eutitld to representa tion in Congress uinler vbe Reoonatruotioii acts. It further provides th1. no eleution of electors shall be recognized unless held tinder the authority of the new Constitution and Government. The law merely expresses the logical result of the Congressional policy in regard to States not formally restored to the Union. States which are out of the Union in all other mat ters of government have no claim to be oouuted iu the Union for the purpose of voting in the Presidential electiou. Having no share in national .legislation and administration, they cannot participate in the choice cf the national Executive. To admit them to the Electoral College while excluded from representation in Congress, would be to surrender the vital principle , of the reconstruction policy; the conclusion is so obvious, that the enautsaent of a law affirming it was desirable only a a means of determining in advance the standing of Virginia, Mississippi, and Texas in the election. Had the dec'sion been left until the time arrived for counting votes, its promul gation might have worn the appearance of partisanship. Declared as it was beforehand, it is not subject to that imputation, while its reasonableness and consistency are loo plain to be disputed. The Democratic party in Mississippi, how ever, are seriously debating the question, whether an election shall be held in defiance of Congressional action. The Chairman of the Executive Committee of the State some weeks ago insisted that the law shall be disregarded as nnll and void, and his view has since been adopted by the Committee, whose address on the subject has been endorsed by the looal Democratic press, as well as by the extremists of Virginia. A request for the issue of a proclamation was addressed to General Gillem, commanding the department, who declined to comply. . From his decision an appeal has been made to the President and General Grant, and as no help is expected, or could legally be rendered by either, the Demooratio oracles are turning their attention to the suggestion that an election shall be held under the authority of the Government which Congress swept aside in the beginning of reconstruction. The view of thjse who favor this course is dis tinctly echoed by the Louisville Journal, the ablest and most vigorous Democratio print in the Southwest. Says the Journal: "Now our opinion, au opinion ai to the recti tudeof wb Ion we Have not even a moment's doubt, is, that the three Slates naniHd.Vlrjiinia, Mississippi, and Texas, without me Hligiuest deference or regard to tue lniiimousJy piriUan and unconstitutional l-gllntlou ot'UuDgreu. nnd without taking the least account of the absence of enahliiiKordeia or psy ing any atten tion whatever to threat lssuiug from under the Bhauow of cocwl hate and epaulettes, should, on trie Uar of the election of freslden Ual electors throughout the United SUtes pro ceed to the electiou of electors just as If there were no such thing as a Jori!jresslonal disabling law, a fierce hat, or u shoulder-strap. Let them elect tbelr elector, fur we do not suppose that tuey need be deterred from the exerciNo of that prerogative by the fear of satraps and their bayonets. Let them by ail rneans elect tUelr electors and leave the consequence to tiio people of the na'lou themselves included. We can ascure them, that, if they eliall electSey mour and Blair electors, and if the counting of the volts of their electors would give Seymour and Blair a majority in the elec oral colleges of the country, the votes of their electors will be counted and Heymour aud Blair placed In the Presidency and Vice Presidency, De the cost what It may. If we will not flrht for our rights, we have no right to havo rights or at any rate to tt-ik about them." The plan which the Journal thus boldly commends was not concealed by the more out spoken of the Southern delegates t9 the New York Convention. Congress had not at that time finally acted in the matter, but the in tention to exclude the votes of unreconstructed States was understood. In anticipation of this proceeding, the course now advooated by the leading Democrats of Mississippi was un reservedly advooated, in personal intercourse, by the very men who foroed General Blair npon the Convention. Wade Hampton's de claration as to the exclusive acknowledgement of white votes pointed in the same direction. And it la reoommended, with more or less reserve, by others of the same stamp. Encouragement is found in the message of the President communicating the veto of the resolution to whioh we have referred. In that document, Mr. Johnson repudiated as "illegiti mate, and of no validity whatever," the Gov ernments organized under the aots of Congress, and asf erted that the only votes in the South ern States "that can be legally cast aud counted Will be those oast in pursuanoe of the laws in force in the several States prior to the legisla tion by Congress npon the subjeot of recon struction." Mr. Johnson's opinion, however, can have no practical effaot as against the law, and the Democrats, who, iu Mississippi or else where, make it the basis of proceedings in re gard to the election, will expend their energies in vain. It will probably be found that the duty of the military commanders is not to be limited to the refusal of requests like that addressed to General Gillem. If only to prevent disturb ance, they would seem to be required to forbid and prevent proceedings instituted in the name and under the pretended authority of Governments which Congress pronounced bas tard and unlawful. In no other way does it seem possible to avert collisions and prevent complications, and we doubt not that the Gene rals in command will be instructed accordingly. The Wcorgla Kebcls. From ihe N, T. Tribune. We suppose the case at Camilla to be a per fectly clear one. Shall the late Rebels be the only class in the Southern communities suf fered to hold political meetings and bear arms J That is the essential question at issue. The Hebel admissions make it quite as clear as the statements in our despitou from Atlanta on Tuesday thelmportant asser tions of which remain unchallenged in any quarter. "The right of the people to keep and bear arms ehali not be infringed. " That is the pledge of the Constitution of the United States. "At the r-quest of the citizens, M. O. Poor, the Shenir, with a committee of six other citizens, went out to met the prooes sion, and to state to them distinctly that, if they would put down their arms, no objec tion wonld be made to their entering the town and holding their political meeting." That was the gracious permission of the paroled Itebel soldiers to the loyal citizens of Mitchell county, Ga., aoor.rdlng to their own elaborate self-justifioatiou. Geueral Howard telegraphs the statements of a Re publican in the dispersed procession, who (ays he was expressly warned against enter ing the town (Mi the Finglu ground tlitt "tbe people were determined thut radioah fchonM not speak at Camilla," ad who elsewhere I incidentally explains that "the colored men, I being unarmed," could not be rallied. Hut we are willing to oorwiider the case on , the showing of the Rebels themselves. Here is the understanding of the matter attained by the Exprts, after a study of the accounts irom its friends: ' 1 "It is quite plain that If the 'ra-lloal canal date for Congress' aud his negro moo find for borne to invnde a town wbtcn me rslierilF soil elllzent. bi lged thetn to leave in peaoe, no out bleak would have happened." "The radical candidate for Congress and hi9 negro mob" were simply a political proces sionnot even charged to have acted thus far otherwise than -peaceably of citizens of the State, If tbey were armed, as is posslble; is that a new thing at political asst mblages, or assemblages of any sort, in Georgia T : Is there any law, written or unwritten, by which one citizen shall be permitted bear arms for that he has been a Rebel and is now a paroled sol dier, and another citizen shall be punished for bearing arms for that he has been a Union man and is now a Republican f 1oes it con s i ute an "invasion" of a town in Georgia for a peaceable procession of Union men to enter it f an "iudasion" so dangerous as to warrant the late Rebels in mustering to repel it, and in pursuiug the scattered aud lleeiug Union men five to seven miles from the plaue, killing and wouuding indiscriminately all they can reach f We now have five versions of the occurrence that of our special correspondent, published on Tuesday; the Rebel version of the Associated Press, given in the same paper; the formal statement of the sheriff and other citizens of Camilla; the accounts gathered by General Howard and others from eye-witnesses, and telegraphed to Washington; and a report made by Georgians to the local officer of the Freed men's Lureau. They all agree on the follow ing points: 1. The Republican procession wai peaceably approaching the town, in accordance with a previous announcement, to attend a meeting to be addressed by the candidate for Congress in that district. 2. While still some distance from the town they Were met, first by couriers, aud subse quently by a regular committee of resident Rebels, warning them that they could not enter it in safety. 3. Thty refused to hi deterred by such threats, insisted on their rights, aud, while entering the town with their inusiu, were fired npcu by white citizens. 4. They made little resistance, soon fled, and weie pursued six or seven miles. They lost in killed and wounded numbers variously stated lrom forty, in oue Rebel account, all the way up to a hundred in another. The rebels lost none killed, aud the largest nuinbdr claimed to be wounded is six. These are the facts admitted on all hands. Can the most prejudiced man put any but oue honest construction upon them? It was de liberately determined that a Republican meet ing should not be held in Camilla. "Carpet baggers," "scalawag," and "loil niggers" were to be taught that Rebels ruled in that bailiwick, and none but true Democratio senti ments were tolerated. The Rtbel accounts, in their impotent and impudent attempts to conceal this, fall into sufficiently distressing difficulties. They admit that "a citizen," i. e., a white Rebel, fired the first shot, but plead iu extenuation that he was drunk. They insist that they were themselves legally and virtuously unarmed, but admit iu the very next, Hue that the moment the negroes returned this shot, 'immediately about twenty of our citizens sprang to their arms and fired into the column, by which two negroes were killed and an uukuowH number wounded." 1 hey profess only the must lauiVlike dispo sition and the most perfect willingness for Republican meetings to bo held, but iu the next sentence regret that only negroes were killed, and that the white men escaped "wi'.h but little injury," t. e., with only a bullet-hole in the leg of the "scalawag" candidate for Congress. They profess fears that the negroes wonld have become "an infuriated mob," and explain that therefore they got up a mob themselves. They complain that the negroes "vastly outnumbered" them, and were fully armed, while they were "wholly unarmed," and then exhibit, as the result of this danger ous state of affairs, 100 negroes, more or less, killed and wounded, with a beggarly loss of "six wounded" on their own Bide. A flimsy exouse is set up by the Sheriff and other citizens of Camilla that, because the negroes were armed, Governor Bullock's late proclamation warranted their forcible dis persion. Let us see. The only sentences in that proclamation referring to the subjeot are as follows: "No authority has been granted by the Exe cutive for the format lou of armed or unarmed organizations of any kind or character, and t he dillllug or exercising in military tactics with aims ol any organized body of men wiihin this State, except tue army of the United States, Is unauthorized, unlawful, and against the peace and good order of the Slate, aud must be im mediately suspended." The following extraots from the Constitution and the Code are reoommended to the thought ful consideration of the public: "SccMon 5. The right of the people to appeal to the Courts, to petlllou Gov. ramout in all matters, aud peaceably to Assemble for the con siOeiuiiou ol any mailer, shall never be Im paired. "Section 11. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be Infrlogrd." It is not pretended that the dispersed pro cession was drilling or exercising in military tactics. That is all that Governor Bullock forbade. Admitting the Rebel statement that the negroes were armed, wherein do we find them differing from the Rebel themselves, save that the negroes carried their arms openly and the Rebels had theirs concealed r Does the Sheriff ot Mitchell county happen to know which of these acta it is that the laws forbid? But why should the negroes not be armed ? lias not John Forsvth said: "Orgauize a Ku-Klux Klan whenever they orgauize a league; meet friendship and peace as Chris tians should, meet midnight leaguers and enemies as manhood dares." Were the negroes incapable of understand ing the plain language ol the Meridian Mer cury? It said: "With the skull and nrnta-hones of the Most cause' before us, we will sweir thu this is a white man's governtneut. We must make the reyrouuders'and we aro the men we were when we held Mm Id at Jeot bond ige. and mtke him feel that when fm oearaone ceases t be a. virtue he has aroused u po wer that will o mtrol him or destroy him." Were the uegros, or th accompanying "carpet baggers," or even the '-scalawag, " to blame if they thought Mr. II well Cobb meant a little of what he eaid at Atlanta ? 'Kbemie they were Id war, enemies they continue to he In peace. Iu war. we drew the fcwmii and bade tueui deflation. Iu nonoe. we tatl.tr up the mannooit of the Snnth, and rais ing the banner of constitutional equality, and gathering around It the good men of the North as wen as tne houtti, we hurl into tholr teeth to day the same defiance, and bid them come on to the struggle. We aro ready for It, If you are. Young men, in whose veins the red blood of youth runs so quickly, come Come one aud all, and let us suuioh the old banner from the Oust and give It again to the breeza, and, if need he, tot lie god of buttles, and striae one more honest blow for constitutional liberty." The good cause will go forwarl. The ont rages and atrocities that continue the 'desola tion of the south will end with tin election of Grant. Murder, cannot delay, nor slander of a feeble and perseoated race prevent, that oon enmmatlon. But we beg Northern voters to observe who it is that seeks to profit by these agencies. . Other allies of the same party onoe sought similar aid in a more oonspiouous in stance. Their leader was Mr. Wilkes Booth. General Dix's Letter. Prom I ht IT. r. World. The American Minister at Paris has writ ten a ranoorous letter, bitterly denouncing and abusing Governor Seymour, aud laying bare a heart ulcerating with spite aud envy. The letter, by a transparent subterfuge, pur ports to be private, but its whole tenor and composition show that it was written for the American newspapers. We do not condemn its publication, tor an open calumniator is a less blameworthy and less dangeroui charac ter than a secret backbiter. We do not object to the publioity, but to the affectation that that publioity was not intended. If it were proper to make such an assault at all, it should be made with manly openness. The false pretence of privaoy, and real intention to pub lish, put the writer in a dilemma between a meditated stab in the dark, and a con?clou4 violation of propriety in appearing before the public in a character that does not become him. We adopt the more favorable supposition, and relieve General Dix of the Imputation of being a snake in the grass. We assume that he intended that his vituperative letter should be printed in the public journals. We have then the ppeotaole, to whioh we can reoolleot no parallel, of an American Minister to a foreign Government taking sides, with bit ter ostentation, in a party contest at home. Mr. Adams, who haj lately returned from England, has a j aster sense of pro priety, lie feels that he oannot, without a violation of decorum, embark in this party contest, and assigned that as a reason for ab staining from party topics in responding to the welcome of his admiring fellow-citizens. How infinitely stronger are the reasons for ab staining while a minister is actually serving abroad in his diplomatic capacity I The true sentiment on this and kindred subjeots was wel' expressed by Mr. Webster iu a Bpeech iu Congress during the war of 1812, when he said that all our party differences ought to cease at the water's edge. A genuine patriot ism oan accept no other rLle; and hitherto, as far as we can recollect, our foreign ministers and our naval officers serving abroad have practised the wise reticence whioh i-atrloiisui aud decorum enjoin. Geue ral Dix is the first to forget that he lithe representative of thn whole country, aud to exhibit in one of our great missions the fierce acrimony of party politics. Tue exouse whioh he oilers for this breach of propriety is a statement (a statement whioh we have never seen, and whioh nobody who knows him would credit) that he desired the election of Mr. Seymour. If such a sUtemeut has beeu made, and General Dix .desired to contradict it, he might easily have made the contradic tion in a more d.plomatto, or at least in a more decent aud considerate manner. He could have disclaimed tin imputation with out such a tirade of vituperation. The assigned reason is only a pretext; for the lettrr makes it too evident that its author is glad of an opportunity to pour out the rancor which has long been festering in his breast towards Governor Seymour. There are hundreds of men as virtuous and respsot able as General Dix who do not think it in cumbent on them to make such aggressive demonstrations againt Governor Seymour. If patriotism inspired this attack, why have we had nothing similar from Chief Justice Chase, or Charles Francis Adami, or Reverdy John eon, aud utlior men or lib-e nlau'llng T 1'Qe difference between such men and General Dix is that they have no personal hostility to Governor Sej'mour, while General Dix har bors old grudges which he takes this occasion to display. General Dix is a New Yorker many years the senior of Mr. Seymour. He has always been a greedy place-hunter; he has, in his time, encountered many mortify ing disasters, and. not the least of these is his constant failure to get the Democratic party to think him a good candidate for the Presidency. He has seen a younger Democrat in his own State eclipse his popu larity and bear away the honor for whioh he has so long pined and aspired. He is accord ingly as fair a judge of Mr. Seymour's oharao ter and publio career as a neglected spinster is of the beauty and manners of the reigning belle by whom she is thrown into the shade. General Dix is mortified that his name was never talked of, nor even thought of, in con nection with the Democratic nomination. It galls him beyond endurance that he should be of so little account in a party to which he has always professed to belong. As regards the matter of General Dix's letter, there is nothing in it which everybody has not seen a hundred times ia the Tribune, and a hundred times replied to and exploded by Demooratio journals. There is nothing new but its utteranoe by General Dix, who merely attests his personal hatred of Mr. Seymour, but contributes no new ideas to the canvass. TlieSIinlule in the Southern Stales. Pon. the A. r. Herald. Everything appears to be getting into the worst kind of a muddle in the South. Tennes foe is in an almost inextricable muddle about Krownlow's militia, the violent doings of the Ku-Klux Klans, the distrust and distraction of people in remote districts, the fierce struggle lor power among the partisan leaders, aud a generally uncivilized condition of things all over the State. The President has been appealed to to send down United States troops to preserve the publio peace. Ihis he has agreed to do, and we suppose we shall in a short time hear of something like the restora tion of order in Tennessee out of the present chaos. North Carolina is in a muddle about her State bonds and the general maladministra tion of the civil law. With Holden, a radical of the Brownlow pattern, to lead the ultras, there is very little courtesy or common de cency to be expected in the oampaign going on. But North Carolina does not seem to be quite as bad off as South Carolina. There the reign of disorder seems complete. Depu tations have been sent to Washington com posed of her first citizens appealing for pro tection from the depredations of bauds of armed negroes. Think of a proud, imperious South Caroli nian craving from the "rotten old wreck of a government" at Washington defense against the "cussed nigger 1" South Caroliua is like a beautiful coquette with a favorite lover. One day she does not like the military, and dismisses them; but the next the brutal blacks menace her with outrage, she regrets ber decision, prays for the return of the mili tary, and implores their protection. In one case the blaiks, it will be seen, have just taken the law into their own hands, and were about administering justice to oue of their color according to their own notions of right and wrong, when they were interfered with and prevented. Armed bauds of negroes are roaming about the country, and have regular organizations on the islands ndjateut to Charleston. In giving them iu their ignorant cotidition the right to vote, they have bien ltP.d Ihe vk tilus oi the ll iUe'rie.s, bribrii, L temptations, and triokeries of every soulless wretch of a politician who would use them to attain a political position whioh he has no Inst, native, or Christian right to possess. The negro thereupon conceives himself to be allowed to run wild in his career of riot and licentiousness, to defy the laws, insult white people, and be shielded in his crimes and inso lence by the whole power of the nation. inis is not only true of South Carolina, but of every other Southern State where the radi cals have been using their inftaennn to retain their grasp npon the reins of government, with us fat money bags and untold stores of plunder, rather than to restore peaca ani order and to establish a new. a substantial. aud well-adjusted system of looal authority. Georgia nas got nerseit into a curious muddle. It appears that the radicals have been eznnl. ling negroes from the Legislature, whereat the coiorea population have beoome indignant ana are aoout holding a State convention to deliberate upon what they shall next do. If the Jfemocratio leaders in Georgia manage rightly and they are sharp and audacious enough to do anything-they oan turn this negro expulsion business to their aooount, and, by dividing the negro vote, defeat the radicals and easily carry the State for the Democracy. The latest reports from Georgia represent a horrible and bloody muddle of whites and blaoks, in whioh it is difficult to ascertain at present who are the wrong doers. Probably both parties. A proposition made by the radicals in the Legislature to call upon the President for United States troops to preserve the peaoe was voted down, making another muddle precisely the opposite of that which prevails in South Carolina on the same point. Alabama will always be in a muddle so long as her Demooraoy are led by the light of the firebrands now at their head; but they are gradually beooming toned down anl are not half bo ferocious, but yet, perhaps, more wily than they were three weeks alter their return home from the Tammany Convention. The negro vote seems to be inclining -Democratic-ward in Alabama, while in Arkansas the latest report is that "intelligent negroes are going against the carpet-baggers." This is a good sign. In Louisiana the Demoorats are making superhuman exertions, and may be assisted by the Warmouth muddle, about negro processions, negro outrages, negro mur ders, white persecutions, and the like, whioh is disturbing the radicals. Tiorida seems to be luxuriating quietly among" her orange groves, now aud then exoited by some looal muddle about offioes and carpet-baggers. Poor old Virginia, with Mississippi and Texas, are in a muddle beoause thy are left out in the cold. In the case of Virginia, however, there appears to be a muddle amng a portion of the blacks, who have held a convention and passed resolutions declaring a want of confidence in the radical Executive Commit tee, a muddle which may prove serviceable to the Democrats when the proper time atrives. On the whole, we have reason to still think that our prophecy that a majority of the bouthern States can be carried for the Demo cratio candidates will be fulfilled. But it will not affect the general result. The North and West will settle that. Nothing at this mo ment visible in the canvass oan prevent the election of General Grant. But by working zealously in the South the Democrats can secure and organize a number of States there which will form a splendid nucleus around which they can rally in the grand struggle for the restoration of their party topower in 1872.
