WILMINGTON. N. O. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1875. J ; I". Kit Alt BUKIfiEB AND 'I HE JOVKML. On the 17tb, in an article headed, Gov. Chamberlain, Gen. Barringer and Lord M icanlay, the Jourvai. endeav or d to show to its r. eders that the g n;huien wLo bear, respectively, the ilr-t .wo cf these Damns, had each ina le a labored effort to pervert the writings of the nu-t bridiantpen that hts yet written the English laDgnage, to the s-ipport of a theory of govern ment cf which tdey aspire to be the champions in North Carolina and in South Carolina. We Bay they have made the cSort to pervert the writings of Lord MaeauUy to sustain thern in their own political views, feeling l.o th ubt, jf they could' malie it appear t'.: .o, these political views were- sus tained by the wr.'Jen wisdom of so en l,f id a statesniw.i, and sanctioned 1.. .-xaitel a name, it would lecd their cause a pren-ige vLich would an bwe ioc their apology if not their jus- fcillcutiou. Oar artie'e cf th" 17b was In part c! ied by the Cha l';tti Observer, t-nd. coruuiotited upon, ;n ao editoii: I. of iori.al. It s ems it vas ir. il-'t iat Gen. barringer first saw it. Y .-e received a note from him, .-b- g a copy of his reply written fo: publication and published in the Observer, a- k ug that we republish it in tie JouiiXAti. together with an ex tract from a second speech ou a differ ent subject from that which we have in baud. In another column we republish his reply with pleasure, having a desire to instepresent the sentiments of no one. So far from having thi desire as to Geu. Barringer, we would gladly tnibrace the opportunity of publishing his entire and fall recan tation of all the political errors which he has committed since the day he es poused the caase of those who are an tagonistic to his former comrades in arms. The extract from his second speech, on a totally different subject, we do not deem relevant to the ques tion before us, and nave no space for it? publication to-day, though we may give it to onr readers at some future time, with our comments. Now we assume it as an undeniable truth, tioce Gen. Barringer Bays so, (see his reply) that he did not take the quotation from Macaulay at sec ond hund, through Ujv. Chamber lain's Yaie College speech, but that ha "read from Hie book" aud that he did not quote directly from Miltou whose "political writiuga are full of just such ideas and illustrations." but that he "only quoted from Macaulay, because he had groured them with such beauty aud power-"' If we apprehend the meaning of .hid part of General Barrengh's "reply," he still strives to make it appear that th'? gre-it intellect of Macaulay was de voted to the udvoc.cy of the political ideas which GcJQ. Barringer and his party are ende tvoriug to popularize in North Carolina, aud to engraft in the system of Government far her people. As to the political creel of Milton, we scarcely expected that Gan. Barringer would, the second time Leive tb- 1: irdihoo l to declare his ad ra rjit i oil for creed which b .-ought :,.; vh r, th. TT- -': i ii-r-i, and 'dir.ii'i niter thing til r- ich" uudr Iuri-.ns, it- tho Cavaliers to too hih for mor- tho ba.iner of a "led them to pur- fiuaMii who alwiys sua unwise ends, out never to choose unwise ro eins;" a creed which held tbi.36 iug-.ai.stent and irrecouciliabie. masses togetuer for eleven years, un til this faa.iticould arasp the supreme poverof the realm of England, ftud drench her soil not only with th" j blood of her la .vf.il sovereign and uis i foll. ,-?rs, bi:t wiMi tlie blood of thou sand's who wersi etilisted under liis own lanaer and afterwards had the tealri, v io remonstrate at his atrcci i;.;s; a creed which failed because it led too high for mortal to reach; a creed which failed and left the cavaliers to return to their allegiance to Charles the Second, and plnr-e him upon his lawful throne, left the Free-thinkers to become doubting Thomases" aDd "careless GalIio3," to glide into slip pery paths of infidelity as to religious belief, and become the passionate wor shippers of that freedom which finally crossed the British Channel and crea ted the Briesotines of the French revo lution: a creed which failing, left the Pnritans free to land on Plymouth Hock, to enact tho blue laws of Con necticut, to burn witches a'ad to pro mulgate the arbitrary doctrines which culminated in the great war between the States a war to which Gen. B irringer had the honor of lead ing many heroic Carolina soldiers, j. whose children he would now place in vuixed schools along with the negro. Theso were, iu brief, the fruits of IVlilton's political creed and political ideas. TVe arc not surprised that this creed and these ideas should be kept alive in the region of P'ymouth Rock by the descendan s of the Paritans, or should be carried with them to orher lauds, as in the case of Gov. Chamberlain, but that Gen. Barringer should adopt I hem iu order to excuse his advocacy cf Mixed Schools " nou'd not have been believed of him when last f-een with three stais and a wreath on his colo". But let us see if Macaulay enter tained the sentiments which Gen. Bar ringer would fatill ascribe to him. We regret that f he General did not read onr article, entire, as it eppeared in our columns, before he replied to it. Had he done so we believe we sbouhi have been snared the trouble of aeain showing that he has not read the works of Macauley with the attention which he should have bestowed before he attempted to quote from him, even 'from the book." If however he attempts to reply to what he confessedly has never read txcc-pt, indeed a few extracts copied in another paper, wb'ch as he says in his not- t i n, h? could not tell wheth er they wtre taken from an editorial or a communication, we ere not surprised that he should hastily seize tipon any quota'ion that might serve his present purpose, even though he be ignorant o the an' r's meaning as onveyed m t':e eeL ' :.t. Briefly ti er, ft r cur si -ace will not admit of yict"ng ar. any length, we ptoposo to group a of Macanlay's own i.entenee3. at first from hi.s biegr ?pby as contained in the fifth volume -f Macaulay 's History of F-igler.d. On page 32 his biographer, in speak icg of Macaulay's essay on Milton, says : "In republishing it he (Macau lav) mail a a few alterations, but every oompent judge will endorse his own St- nt, that the criticism on Mil t ' ch was iitten when tLo aulhor -esh from College, aud which cousins scarce'y a paragraph such as in's matured judgment approves, still remains overloaded with gaudy and ingracefnl ornament," Again on page 36 : "His real entry into liter am re was through the gates of the Edinburgh Review, in his hand that paper on Milton, which has so of ten puzzled the critics, and of which he was himself in later life ashamed.' Do these two extracts sound to the ears of Gen. Barringer as if Macau ley continued in the years of his matur ity to endorse and confirm the com mendation, which, in his youthful days he threw around the head of Miltou, iu "words of gaudy and ungraceful ornaments ? If Gen. Barringer wishes to draw lessons of Wi-doui from the teachings of the profound statesman and philos opher, let him seek the expression of his matured judgment, rati ei than the gaudy and ungraceful ornaments of "that naner on Milton. 'Jlacret m lit era haerct in corf ice" Aud now for a few of Macau'ay's own words again. In his review of Mill's Essay on Governments he dis cusses the modern doctrine of popular representatives and says, " that the higher and middle orders are the natu ral representatives of the human race,' In the same review he disposes of the argument in favor of universal suffrage without a qualification, as drawn from the example ot the United States, by exclaiming: " As for America, we ap peal to the twentieth century" nu ap peal, by the way, which ha been abun dantly respond d to in the nineteenth century by the experiments of General Barriuger's police d party, which have "caused,"' as Gov. Chamberlaiu told ns at Yale, "errors, follies and cringes, to abound for the time, and had result- ed in corrupt Legislatures, wasteful expenditures, burdensome t;ixes, ruined public credit, incapacity in high office, and frequent violence and disord ." In Macanlay's Etsay on Beutbam's Defense of Mill, h shows the abswdii'i th-' th ory f u iiverrial sufTage ; j '' X a;- ih :i . vt vy argument which tellf- io o f versal suffrage f the l I -. t-'." '.ally in favor of f-nvde t-uit'iage," In his essay ou tlie Utilitarian Theory of Government, Le says "Ii- t us go beyond the surf:ice of j facts, let us, in the sound sense of the words, penetrate to the spiings within; at.oi the dec wt go, the more reason ! sh!1 re flu tr1 He at. these theorists j w- i.v ho'd tha" 'he t-olc hcp. of the hn ruiin rae i' in tue rnle o; tnreo mm j and biil it liox." II- oneludes this essav with the follow. words which ! shall be our quotation : "Onr fer vent wish, alio, we will add, our san guine hope, is, tbst we may see such a reform in the House of Coramous as may render its votes the express image of the opinion of tbe m'ddie orders of Britain. A pecuniary qualification we think absolutely necessary ; and in settling its amount, our object would be to draw the line in 6uch a -manner that every descent farmer and shop keeper might possess the elective franchise." After reading these few extracts, taken almost at random from Macau lay, can General Barringer Btill have the effrontery to claim Macaulay an advocate of universal suffrage, and what is more, of universal negro suf frage ? Or can he claim Macaulay as an apologist for his advocacy of the policy of compelling the white chil dren to be mixed np together -with the negro children, in the public schools of North Carolina? It is true that Macaulay was among the staunchest advocates of the nci versal freedom of mankind. But we repeat what we said in our first criti cism of Gov. Chamberlain and Gen. B irringer, that the distinction which Macaulay always keeps steadily in view is the very plain one between freedom and power, the common dis tinction which the lawyers make be tween the right and the remedy. As we before said, it is not against jierorccrfon.butagaiuBt negro power that we have declared war. The two things are totally distinct; and it aoes teem to us that the dullest un demanding ought to be able to see that it is not negro freedom wftich has wrought onr ruin, but that it is negro poioer, directed, as it has been, by igni ranee aod malevoleDC .

He left his heme in the n cm- ing, aud shortly afterward tbe city was -tart!ed bv the announcement ihat a man had been dashed from the para pet of the Washington monument to the ground below, a distance of nearly one hundred and fifty feet. A more desperate deed could hardly be imagined. A heavy thud as of some thing falling over his head was heard by the young mau who had charge of the door of the monument, and, going out to ascertain the cause, he dis covered on the top of the marble base a shapeless mass of human flesh and bones. The front of the base of the monument and the pavement were be spattered with human flh and brains. A crowd soon gathered, but so shock ing was the spectacle that it was some considerable time before any step was taken to report the horrible aff air to the proper authorities. The only article fouu 1 on the body was the following note, written in lead pencil, on a scrap of paper: Now, Miss Cobb, I leave thee in these words, hop ing to hear from you. Fare thee well, still forever, still forever fare thee well. Even though uuforgiven, never against thee shall my heart rebel." The keeper of the monument recoguiz ed the decease J as the same man w o daring the morning, had visited the place, aud tbe supposition is that his courage had failed him then, and he returned again to can y out his design. Every bone in the unfortunate mau'b body was broken, and the baca part of his skull, from the terrible manner in wh:'ch it was crashed, is supposed to have been the first part that struck th" stone woik. a Misrv in i i.iiioK law ftiiriT.

N tw, the facts are, I not only made tli quotatiou d rectly from Maciuiaj, bu . uaviug no time to copy. I read from the book, and. after I nut down, sev ral deiegutes, much struck with th sentiments, c me up to examine the xtract, arid Alt-. Woodfij, of H;-i -der&ou, copied it from th'v book. HJ I statj further that 1 never read an advlo'vs of Go vtrnor Chamberlain uot evi 11 his Chariot e Centennial, which D n.ocrats told me was one of the bet del vered. fi- iter Btich gro.ja and conti mptible cri; cism as this, it is hardly uc si-ary to 1 otice the prtttnee tUat Al'ltou nev rheid tuch sentiments, and tht Mi e iulay retracted and rcautd his. I v. I adtl, however, that the political wri'iugs of Milton are fu 1 of jast such idi as and illustrations; and 1 only qut 'ed from Macaulay because he bed grouped thtm with such beauty aiid power. A word further: This speech rn "S. parate Schools," was not partisan. It v as iutended to allay the fears and prejudices of our people on a subj-ct (the commingling of the two nice;-) in regard to which I felt morally sine they were needlessly aud cruelly alarmed. It was to accepted ly several Democratic papers, aud fa vorably noticed. But in this very speech I referred to the abuse 01 power by the negroes, and in a second speech, on disfranchising felons, wuich I favored and voted for, I dii-tinetly warned the colored people that all government, civil, church, school, business, and the industries, ruu-t lie founded on the virtue and intelligence of those woo direct and control. Otherwise society musi go to piece aud iuvolve ail in a c immoa ruiu. But this Wilmington critic is careful t omit ail such allusions, and too many others of his wing of the D. ru ocracy follow his example. Oi' Ooitise, as a Kepub-i u, I do not care for this. I 6ee clearly that such a policy, so ua just, so into.erant, a d ho bigoted, is obliged to crush the Democrat. c party and keep it down. But iu mere per sonal matters and in questions not Upper Black partisan, I did hopa the time bid come for a return to the editorial courtesies of iy her days.
