TUESDAY MARCH 16, 1867.
National Strength- Shall the South be
the Ireland of America ?
The New York 7Ym<w, pointing ont the
delicate nature of the foreign relation? of
the Federal Union, and what ?Hght causes
night bring war out of them, turns its at
tention to the situation of affairs at home,
to see bow the nation would be prepared
to meet a war with a first-class foreign
Power. In the course of its plain talk on
this point it says i
"The prim* element of national ",r0"*lh
- -
" least Indicate* KnKlvH? Mno.l .enMtivespot.
?? Jntt now. Ireland is England ? peril. The
" Irish difflcolty ?? her bond for the malnt?*
" inncf of peace with erory first -class Power.
" It a,ld endanger* her, and it will
??continue to do *o until h?r legislators remove
?' the causes of Irish disaffection. In the same
? war, for reasons in their nature identical,
?? this country to in nocondilion tomeetexter
" nal dlfttculUes. Ve cannot hope to maintain
?? a vigorous foreign policy so long as we are
" afflicted with domestic discontent ; and from
" this we shall not be free, not only until the
'? Union b? reconstructs, but until ^t be so re
" constrncted that the peoples of :he two sec
" t ions shall once more feel themselves id?nti
"flwl in interest and ambition. That result
?'attained, we maybe bold and even defiant on
"questions of foreign policy. Meanwhile
"England I* not more crippled by Ireland's
" alienation and hostility than is this country
" by the condition of the southern States. In
" the case of either, war would be waged at a
"disadvantage."
And again the Times says:
? ? If we would prevent future disaffection, it
" behoove* us to inflict no superfluous penalty
?? and to exercise no greater severity thau is
" absolutely necessary. * * * *
" If we are not prepared to forego our preten
" sious as a leading Power, and to modify onr
" foreign policy to suit ihe purposes of others,
*? we must not neglect the opport unity of
" winning back the respect and attachment of
" the millions whom we have forcibly brought
" under the authority of the Union."
Sentiments and arguments like these,
had they prevailed in Congress, as they
should have done, would long since have
restored the I'nion. But the bane of all
republics ? party and partisan ambition ?
has done its worst in the matter of recon
struction. So has it in the domestic policy
of Congress, which has drained the south
ern States of their little means left by a
devastating war, and contributed largely
to that ularming and shocking episode of
starvation which General Howajw so re
cently brought before the National Legis- J
lature. These things, indeed, establish a
distressingly close resemblance between
the South and unfortunate Ireland. The
reflecting and intelligent observer might
well infer domestic discontent, and inquire,
44 llow are we to maintain a vigorous
44 foreign policy " with such a cause of
weakness at home ? Having lost at least
(?00,000, 000 of property by the war, the
South emerged from it exhausted and deso
lated. The tirst salutation that greeted her
from the Federal Government was a
demand for the land tax of '62. Then
camti the contiscations under the amnesty
proclamation of President Johnson,
which, although not fully carried out,
subjected the people to heavy expenses.
Next came the tax on the peculiar staples
of the South, which bears so heavily upon
southern industry? a tax, indeed, over and
above that imposed upon northern people,
who are flourishing, and who flourished du
ring a war, which reduced the mass of
southern people to a poverty which has
seemed almost hopeless. As long as this
policy continues the South will indeed be
the Ireland of America, and the Congress
will not be able to prevent extensive starva
tion amongst her people, though it should
annually vote millions to that object. An
impoverished people paying excessive
taxes to a Government which dis
burses not a dollar amongst them that it
can avoid, must be kept poor and familiar
with want and hunger and misery. Their
land must be, in short, an Ireland ; which
expresses the whole idea of popular op
pression and misery from the folly and
vice of mis-government.
This, then, is the state of things with the
South at present. Quite enough for the
44 domestic discontent " alluded to by the
Times . A\'e are now about going into re
construction under the Sherman S. S.
law. Whether that law, with its concomi
tant acts, imposes any 44 superfluous pen
alty " on the South or not, is a question
for the judgment of people North and
South and everywhere. Its discussion now
can do us but little good. But it will bo a
topic of discussion in times to come ? all
the worse for that, if the opinions and
wise views of the Times had prevailed, the
work of reconstruction would have been so
complete as to shut out the after discus
sion. But, like a bad amputation, it may
be apprehended that the work will have to
be done over again with more or less peril
to the patient.
But, dismissing this discussion, and the
conclusive logic of the Times as to the
national weakness that is begotten by
"domestic discontent," wo asTi, " Can the
44 South continue to be the Ireland of
?? America ?" We answer, No ; that is im
possible. To continue the privation and
hardships of the southern people, it is ne
cessary that the same sectionalism, the
same interests, the same opinions, the
same prejudices, the same party predomi
nance that now prevail, shall continue to
rule. That is impossible. The restora
tion of the southern States to represen
tation will have its effect on the national
councils, and of itself go far to lift up the
dead weight now resting upon the south
ern people. But independent of this con
sideration, there are much more powerful
influences which must soon begin to work,
and which will continue with a force and
steadiness that cannot be thwarted.
Thiscoumry i? yet in its infancy. There
are millions of acres of land rich in mine
rals aud agricultural resources yet to be
populated. The modem means of com.
munication are filling up these lands with
? unprecedented rapidity. Therefore the
relative power and the sectional interests
of the d.tlerent parts or the empire are
constantly aud rapidly changing. The
weight of representation ? \hat power
^ which, in these days, decides the right? U
steadily changing, and but a short time is
needed to bring forth in the gladiatorial
counsels of the nation new organizations
of parties, new predominating interests,
aud new policies.
It is impossible in the natore of these
political changes that they shall always |

eel revolution, to occnr In the cour?e of
the rapid settlement of the immense area
governed by the Federal authority that the
present division of parties? the present
policies, issues, and antagonisms, consi
dered as active and as controlling the
Government? will be at an end, and become
merely historical. The great element of
the old divisions and the present inequall.
tie* and persecutions was slavery and is
the freedman. The event soon to occur
takes him out of the arena and takes out
of Radicalism its chief source of vitality.
It takes out of politics the only cohesive
power which at present holds together
northeastern and northwestern Radical
ism. In the matter of office and govern
ment dispensations the great West will
soon be unwilling to divide with that sec
tion of the Union which has heretofore
been the recipient of tho lion's share of
these benefits. We may hope that upon
the measure of ft?rcc exerted on the South
now there will be even a reaction in the
Northwest favorable to the South ; for the
most monstrous proposition of .the age is
the forcing of negro suffrage upon com
munities where the negro, so late a slave,
and unprepared for its exercise, is in nu
merical superiority by the representatives
of northern States who refuse to permit
negro suffrage notwithstanding the black
men within their territory are as one in five
hundred or a thousand !
Ireland and England are old nations ?
their islands are bounded by the sea, and
incapable of expansion. They are of dif
ferent religions. Have been for centuries
enemies. No new populations can come
in to revolutionize their relations. They
must remaiu as they are until some foreign
war or domestic convulsion breaks the
chains of Ireland by breaking the power
of England. God forbid there should be
more than one Ireland ! Let us hope that
that Ireland may at no remote day be
free and "contented."
With these views, it seems to us we
have no cause for despondency. It is trus
the new internal, social, and political con
dition of the southern populations is not
yet fully understood, and anxiety with re
gard to the future is very natural. Hut
with reference to the status of the south
ern States in the Union there should bo
both hope and cheerfulness. The Union
cannot long exist in its present state. It
the States are restored to equality, the
southern States, through new combinations
and powers referred to in this article, will
acquire both consideration and justice.
Should the Union terminate in the empire,
with one man at its head (which we now
see no reason to anticipate for a long time
to come), the southern States will, be as
well off as any of the States. The one
man administration will be good or bad all
over. So that our people may make the
sacrifice they are now compelled to make
with a very good grace, looking beyond
the dark clouds of the day to the brighter
time which even now begins to give cheer
ful signs of its dawning.
The Petersburg Index will concede, we
suppose, that upon a question of honor
General Lee's opinion would be authority
second to that of no man living. That
was the point we made in announcing his
position upon the Sherman law.
The James River Canal Company. ?
The called meeting of stockholders to look
into the affairs of this company, and to take
such action as may be deemed proper, and
in connection with the commissioners ap
pointed to lease or dispose of the canal, if
they deem it proper to do so, will be- held
to-morrow. Should it be determined to
retain the work in the hands of the com
pany, and direct its operations through of
ficers of their appointment, a president
will be elected to fill the vacancy occa
sioned by the resignation of Colonel Ellis.
The State proxies and directors have
already been announced by us. They arc
gentlemen to whom no objection could be
made, and in whose good judgment and
devotion to the interests of the improve
ment every confidence should be placed.
The meeting is one of the most impor
tant ever held by the company, and its ac- 1
tion will bo regarded with great interest
by the community.
General Early's Book. ? General Ear
ly's book on his campaign in 18G4 and
1865, which has excited much interest, has
been published by Mr. Button, editor of
the Lynchburg Virginian , and is for sale
at all of our bookstores for the benefit of
the Ladies' Memorial Associations. It
was originally published in Canada, only a
few copies being sent to this State by Ge
neral Early to his particular friends. Ho
authorized Mr. Button to print it for the j
benefit of the memorial associations, for
the purpose of enclosing the burial places
and keeping in decent aud decorous order
the graves of the Confederate dead.
A Capital Children's Magazine.?
The Riverside Magarine for l'ouvg Peo
ple is tho best magazine of the kind
published in this country. The themes are
most appropriate, the illustrations admira
bly drawn, and tho whole work, as far as
wc have seen its numbers, is unexception
able. It is published by Messrs. limn &
Houghton, of New York.
The Galaxy, published also in New
York by Messrs. TV. C. & F. P. Church,
is another excellent periodical ; published
twice a month. It displays taato, origi
nality, and talent.
We are glad to see such meritorious pe
riodicals offered to the public, and that the
field of light literature id not to be left to
the detettable Harpers.
