VOL. MI. NO. 156 totting £tau ggimuri. I ■iUI.I MED OF THE SOT Ml We are pained and indignant to see in some prominent Northern journals flings at tho Union meu of tho South. Their sincerity as a class is impeached and their very existence treated as doubtful. We knoie how unjust aud cruel these allusions are. There are hero in Richmond hun dreds of white men and women ; there are thousands all over the South who have been true to freedom and tbe Union, bald ing fast to their faith with sublime fidelity in the darkest hours of the civil war, ami who are true to-day. There are men and women here, Southern born and bred, who, for their loyalty, have suffered loss of pro perty, social position, friends and all that mado the future bright, save their love of the truth and the approval of a good con- They fulfilled, by their heroic examples, the prediction of tho poet Whittier made j thirty years ago in tho darkest days of "And from yonder Southern vallies, Southward in the distance lost Freedom, yet shall summon allies, j Worthier than the North can boast With the evil by their hearthstones, Battling at severer cost." These aro the men who to-day sudor scoru, contumely and poverty for their loy alty to freedom and the old flag. Thero are men among uh to-day, of whom the world is not worthy ; whose names will be canonized in tlie great calendar of the world's horoes and martyrs. There are others, and thousands, who havo died to bear witness to tho truth and who sleep in unnoted graves all ever the Sonth, consa orating their native foil with the blood of their martyrdom. Oh, friends and brethrou of the North, take back thtsa cruel and careless words. I*uh as you will corrupt pi ace seekers wherever born, but spare the sweeping denunciations which class Southern loyal ists with the greedy cormorants of office. Here, all around us, are Southern born white men, loyal and true as the neenle to the pole, shut out from church and social gathering and business, proscribed and banned by the unpunished tnalignants of the rebellion, now restored to tho high places of power, by the magnanimity of thfl very party whose adherents they seek to destroy. Wo ask for these men the justice and sympathy which you accord to the strug gling friends of freedom in Europe and in the islands of the sea. Res-ido their costly sacrifices, our loyalty is cheap and poor. We invoke for then) the effective aud earnest support of all good men in their heroic and perilous maintenance «f the iual faith amid the savage hosts of the ed rebellion. .«_». c New York Tribune, with that spirit udor and fairness which is character has sent several able and reliable cor ndenta to the South, to ascertain the se condition of things in the disturbed cts. These correspondents havo been ially instructed to glean the truth all sources, and to present it to the Re, irrespective of its effect upon tho on of either party. The letters are being published, and exhibit a record me and cruelty fearful to contemplate, true that in some cases deeds of vio have been committed by the negroes the whites. Thes,e are not concealed :enuated, but confessed and denounced stroug terms as those committed by whites. The corruptions of the State ad ministrations in some instances aro exposed and a fair showing given to all sides. The opposition press are copying these portions of the correspondence and mak ing themselves happy over the confession--. They are welcome to all they will make iv that way. We rejoice in the thought that our strength enables us to be just.We know that nothing is to be gaiued by falsehood. Wo seek to make all men equal before tho law a-i they are before God, the author of all law. Wo would not wrong tbo bitterest enemy of the Republican party, or allow iiim to suffer a moment's uneasiness or atitnidation iv tho free exercis; of his ights. We do not intend to rest till every tepublican is also protected. Show us iv II these States a Democrat who fears pro sription or violence because he is such, and we will never rest until his wrongs are remedied by the equal administration of the law. From Johnston &Selden, wo have the rj'iw weeklies—a splendid array of pic tures and five reading. The cost of a cigar or two, or a glass of whiskey, gives the family a whole evening of uualloyed and lealthful pleasure. How many good men even stint the family of good reading, aud waste the price of it every day. Now, joys, reform I If you have uo family, go o Johnston & Seldeu's, and buy "Every Saturday," or "Frank Leslie," or "Har >er," or "Appleton," for your lady-love or rour sister.

Wood hull and her adherents of tho Womans'Suffrage Ass)cintion havo a stolit bavy of new recruits to their unpopular but rapidly growing parly, The pret-s of this city has always been rabid in its op position to the enfranchisement of woman. It had denounced in unmeasured terms all attempts to drag women upon the dusty and filthy arena of politics. Suddenly a new light has come to its benighted under standing. It haa yielded the whole ground of controversy ; it not only concedes the right of women to tako part in politics, but enforces the duty. It appeals with pleading earnestness, it summons with lofty eloquence the wo men of Richmond to tho political strife.— They are to come, but not alone. They are first advised, nay, peremptorily com manded, by this high and unquestioned authority, "to make men of their husbands, brothers, sons and sweethearts." The pre cise mode of bestowing tho masculine qualily upon tho aforesaid male friends of tho Richmond women is not detailed, but we presume the uaturalists of the En uirer are competent to give the necessary instruction. Having performed this task (which we >opo is not difficult) they are then com manded to drive th'se newly manufactured r amended specimens of manhood to the laces of registrition. Yes, these aro lhe cry words. Tuiuk of that, defenders of he proprieties and limitation of refined mlyliood. Come to the rescue, Mrs Admiral )algrcen, Mrs. General Sherman and that reat host of protestauts against women's ffrage whoso vast papnr leeveo now rises iko a bulwark to shield va from an iunn atioti of female voters.

With deep solicitude for our esti mable cotemporaries, who are to be trans formed into men by some occult and fear ful process unknown to us, we nevertheless counsel fortitude and forbearance when the drowsy process begins. We trust no resistance will be made, and that the whole bevy of fair dames, whose honorable bat painful duty it shall be to drive the reluc tant Democrats to tho places of registra tion, will exercise their commission with tbat grace aud gentlemss which shall lead the driven to "kiss tho hand that smites." *** j Who Will Rake Och Chestnuts From the Fire.—This is tho question now with that seedy old specimen of senility, the Democratic-Conservative party. Its chestnuts, gathered with so much care, are burning badly. They smoke and fiz and fcime. and now and then pop and vanish in thiu air. S.on they will be only gas and ashes. The frantic old gentleman sees only ruin and rushes frantically round for some spry cat with paws long enough to pnll out the stvory morsels, to feed his savage and monstrous bantlings.. Yesterday it was pussy Trumbull whose head he stroked so paternally; to-day, with all bis pro geny, he is after tho old tiger-cat Sherman to take the ashes. Lo3t caresses every time; no pawß of such cunning felines will ever get burnt in a service so foul and where pay is so very Trumbull is too wary.'and Sherman is too proudly true to his country's flag, ever to bo made the tool of its mortal enemies. He of all men is the last who can be used, II they know little of him, who would struct a party platform from theeccon nonsenso of his dinner speech. .

[COMMCSICATFO ] Broad Street. —B'autitul! that part of Broad street that has been lately Macadamized (so-called), but which is, in fact, a stone heap covered with red mud. Then it is so pleasant to the residents alon- the street ; they all ad mire it, especially lhe housewives. Ford likes it muchly. It ia free soil wiih a vengeance.— There is no me of complaining, fur our City- Engineer and street committee have directed the work ;it must be tight—for they kept right on as it was begun, and if one ouuiplains ol the incompetency and blunders of any ofthe city officials, there is a ready stopper at hand fur the use of the parties interested, by saying that the complaint is for political tli'ect. In making tho foot crossings Ihe engineer must have copied the engineering skill of General Pillow, who, it is aaid, in building forts in Mexico for Po'k and Marcv, placed the breast works and ditche- vise varta. Then such economy is used in carting away the old road bed of very fair quality ol gravel and going to a distant part of the city tor the real rrd earth, that has harOly a sprinkling of gravel in it. Now alter several days of rain, Mroad street looks more like a brick layer's mud bed than a city highway, and after si ve -I*l dyi dry weather it will be a small desert, tbe wind carrying the nice red durt in to every part of the dwellings. Well, we must do like the eels. Tax-Payi™. A Good Plow —All persons who wish to get a tiist-rate plow we would advise them to read the advertisement of "Staike'a Dixie Plow" in the culamus of tbe JooiNii, to day. Few men have probably tried a greater variety of plows ihan wo bave, and now that we have tried Ihe Dixie, we are not surprised at tbe bold and confident way some persona have Bpoken of the superiority of this plow. It has two mold boards ; one designed for sod snd stiff land, the other for porous soil. Wo will not here enter into a philosophical dissertation on the formation, Ao., of this (low, we will mention at present two things which every farmer will comprehend. It is easier to the horses ibau any plow we ever tried, and secondly no farmer would plow laEd where it could be choked. The Saratoga.—'iuis well-known t-t-am - ship of the Old Dominion line, has been oven hauled, repainted and refitted in an elegant manner, and ia now unsurpassed by any vesse l of ita kind afloat.

Say nothing about tho negro, was the poor white man bet ter then than the slave now ? The aUve then was hia eqml in political matters, aid why not now? We know no party.
