OdessA, Oct. 15, 1870.
Many Voters.
The introduction of the blaok raoe into
America had its origin in the necessities
of labor and the passion of cupidity, not
loss than in the abject and savage condi
tion ia which the white man found the
negro in his own native Africa. Before
Ibe African waa enslaved by tho whito
man, he was the victim of the most cruel
fete at home. Petty kings of Dative tribes
were perpetually engaged in war with
oaoh other, and it was the practioe of these
•arage chiefs to slay their captives in bat
tle, or to sacrifice thousands of thorn at a
time to add importance to their public
fetes. Rut when tho slavo trade turned
these captives into a sourco of profit to
Uwir savage conquerors, thero was no
more sacrifice of priioners taken in batile,
hot they were sold to the Spaniards, the
Portuguese, the Dutch and the English,
as slaves. Spain, Portugal, and their in
sular dependencies, and tho English and
Dutch eolonies in America, were thus
peopled with thoso barbarians from the
African coast. It has been said that the
Maytower, whioh landed Capt. Standieh
and hie company at Plymouth Rook, made
heir very next voyage to Jamestown; Va.
with a cargo of slaves. That they were
bonofitted by thoir transfer to America,
does not admit of a doubt. They
taken from a land of heathenism and grosB
moral darkness, and brought to the light
of oivilixation and Christianity, and their
physical, mental, and moral condition, ov
arjway improved. Here, in his normal
aaadition at social and politioal subordina
tion to the white man, from the first set
tlement of the eolonies until now, the
negro has thriven and multiplied, until
tho raoe ia these United States now num
bers between four and fivo millions. Here
they have been more happy and more
prosperous, than any equal number of
their race have ever been in any other
quarter of the world. Their labor was
highly benefioial to tho development of
this oountry. They have assisted our
oeators, for two centuries, in felling the
forest and in tilling tho soil, to the mutual
races. Rut, a ohange has
oome over this order of things. After
violent agitation for more than
tiou, culminating in civil war, tho negro
has been aet free; and from a serf, he has
beoome a citizen, clothed with all the rights
aud immunities of citizenship, and forced
from his condition of dependence upon the
white man, into a position where he is
compelled to think and aet and shift for
himself, and is furoed into a position of ri
valry and antagonism towards the white
raoe, a position whioh he is unfitted by
nature to maintain. Time will demon
ttrate (kit truth. The negro hag reached
the culminating point in his development,
and he will dow gravitate downward, from
thia time henceforth. Let it not be sup
posed that this remark is attributable to
any prejudice towards tho race, on our
part. On the contrary, wo have ever
aheriahed the most kiudly feeliugs towards
them in their sphere, and desire only their
welfare. But, wo do not think their wel
fare will be subserved by their enfran
ohisemont, and by the course of life on
whioh they are now likely to enter. Hith
erto the antagonism of the whito raoe to
wards the negroea has been held in ubey
aaoa, by a sense of their dependence and
subordinate position. But, now that the
law has attempted to place them upon an
equal footing with the whites, and they
themselves ora disposed to assert that
equality, encouraged to do so by design
ing white men for their own selfish purpo
ses, that antagonism, called into play by
the causes above alluded to, will speedily
manifest itself, and make itself felt, more
benefit of both
a genera
and more, until the promised blessings of
freedom and enfranchisement, to the
gro raoe, like the apples of Sodom, will
turn to ashes upon their lips. Nature has
sot bounds between the white man and the
black, which cannot be pasted with impu
nity, The white man cannot overcome
bis natural repugnanee to the negro, there
fbre it is unwise in our lawgivers to enact
laws having a tendency to bring tho two
races upon a plane of equality, and there
fore into antagonism. Equals they cannot
be, for nature has made them so dissimi
lar that it it doing groat violence to her
laws to attempt to make any approaches
towards equality. This Is as true in a
political and social sense as it is in a nat
ural sense. The two races cannot live
peaceably and harmoniously together, ex
cept tho black raco be in a stato of subor
dination. The 14th and 15th amendments
havo placed it in a stato of insubordina
tion, a state whioh will develop more and
more tho natural incongruity and antipa
thy between tho races, and their irrecon
cilable incompatibility. The Republi
cans, as well as the Democrats, will ac
knowledge this truth, in timo. For tho
present, an unworthy partisanship has im
pelled tho Republican party to take the
uegro by tho hand, and to court his sup
port in a party sonso. This evil will ulti
mately oure itself. The blacks will not
contiuue to support the Republican party
without a share of the offices. To accede
to thoir demands would cause such wide
spread defection in the Republican party,
as to give the Democrats an oasy viotory
over them. It is needless to say that the
Demooratio party, reinvested with political
power, would speedily restore this gov
ernment to what it was intonded to be by
its founders—a government for white men
nd would brush away as cobwebs, by a
mero resolution of Congress, those frauds
which are known as the 14th and 15th
amendments, and all the "enforcement''
and " rooonBtruction" acts which have
polluted our statute-bookB under the deba
sing rule of Radicalism. The 13th amend
ment will stand. No one desires to see
the negro a slave again, not even his for
mer master upon the plantations of the
South. Wo would protect him in all his
rights of person and property, under the
law, but political and social equality with
the white man, he cannot havo. If tho
negro is not satisfied with this state of
things, let him betake himself to his own
native clime, Liboria, or to Hayti, where
he can enjoy the largest liberty and grati
fy his highest aspirations without interfe
rence from tho white man. Is there any
hardship in this ? No, it is the dictate
of reason and of common sense, that ho
should go to that clime where the author
of his being intended he should live, and
tp which ho is adapted by nature. No
white man has part or lot in the govern
ment of Liberia or of Hayti. They are
tha governments of the black man, and
the soil as well as the institutions are his.
If he sighs for perfect freedom, let him go
there, where his highest aspirations may
be gratified. We would even assist him
to go, as an act of simple justice to the
descendants of those who were brought,
against their will, from Afrioa here.
There, a genial clime and the spontaneous
fruits of the earth combine to render life
more easy and more agreeable to him.
There, no winter's cold will chill him, and
no wintry season has to be provided for,
but the earth yields her increase all the
year round, and he has but to stretch forth
his hand and pluck and eat. There let
him go. If he will stay here, it must be
in a position of subordination to tho whito
race, and it cannot be otherwise. He
himself will come to see this in time. Tho
Republicans will solicit the votes of the
negroes to keep their party in power, but
they will not share with them tho spoils
of office, or treat them otherwise thaD
menials and inferiors. The negroes will
see this, and will withdraw their support
from the Radicals, and will set up in a
political way for themselves. But they
will ultimately find how futile are all their
efforts in that direction. Disappointment
and discontent will ensue, if not actual
strife between the races.
But let us cast
a veil over this view of our subject—"suf
ficient unto the day is tho evil thereof.'*
But such reflections will obtrude them
selves upon all thoughtful minds, and
not to he ignored. In tho event of
of races—a thing not. the least improbable
—the blacks would he forced from the
country, hut their oxodus would bo
through blood. Muoh more preferablo
would it be in peace and amity.
The very corner-stone of a Republio is
tho virtue and intelligence of the people.
How preposterous it is, then, to olothe
igDorant and semibarbarous race with the
elective franchise, most of whom cannot
read a word upon the ticket they vote and
arc too stupid to understand what they
are voting for. It iB without a parallel in
the history of the world, and is enough to
bring the blush of shame to the cheeks of
all who cherish a proper pride for their
country. It could only have been achiev
ed by the wildest spirit of faction and the
most reckless partizanship. Returning
reason, it is to be hoped, will corret this
partisan insanity, and present onr country
to the world again " clothed and in her
right mind." But this "consummation
a war
most devoutly to bo wishod," awaits the
return of the Democratic party to power.
It will yet be the pleasure and the pride
of that party to -cleanse the Augean stable
of Radieal corruption and misrule, and to
restore our government to its pristine pu
rity. May the good genius of our Repub
lic speed tho day.
Fkdbral Interferbncb in Elections.
—Things are coming to a pretty pass, in
this country, when tho minions of Federal
power maroh an armed aoldiery to the
polls, to interfere in the elections. This
was done by U. S. Marshal Gregory, in
Phildelphia on Tuosday. A detachment
of United States Marines, with fixed bay
onets and guns loaded with ball oartridge,
took possession of the Fifth Ward polls,
and tho eleotion progressed under the
surveillanoo of these Federal troops. What
more dastardly usurpation oould Louis
Napoleon have been guilty of, (when hold
ing his elections under tho power of his
bayonots,) than this? This act of milita
ry interferenoo waB in direct confliot with
the 4th article of the Constitution of the
United States, hut in accordance with what
is called a law of Congress, end known as
tho' infamous Enforcement Aot. Here is
Federal authority not only in oonfliot with
municipal and state authority, hut actual
ly in oonfliot with itself J No wonder tho
people were greatly exoited. A crowd
surrounded the Marines, and there was
danger that they would be seized and dis
armed. As they marched through the
streets, on their return to their quarters,
they were hooted by the excited populaoo.
Tho day of the general olection in this
State is tho " Tuesday noxt after the first
Monday in November" which this year
falls on the 8th of November. This time
was fixed by an amendment to tho consti
tution adoptod in the year 1855.
The fall mooting of tho Peninsular Fruit
Growers' Association will be held in the
Stato House, Dover, on Tuosday, the 18th
inst. at 2 o'clock.
It is »aid that Messrs. Stockley, Bcs
wiek, Hobson and Cooper, have withdrawn
from the independent ticket in KeDt.
Fine Potatoes.—M r. Andrew Eliason, of St.
Georges Hundred, brought us a large sweet po
tato, on Saturday last, which weighed four lbs.
The produet of one vine weighed 7j lbs. They
were of the Nansemond variety, and were obtain
ed from Henry Clayton, Esq.
W. O. Green, residing near Warwick, Md.
brought to this office on Thursday, a sweet potato
of the White Spanish variety, weighing 3 lbs.
We published, last week, an account from the
Denton Union, of a sweet potato which weighed
> pounds, with a challenge to every county
the peninsula to beat it. New Castle county
has beaten it. Mr. Gideon E. Rothwell, of Ap
poquinimink Hundred, sent to this office, on
Tuesday, a sweet potAto which weighed six lbs.
lacking three ounces. From ono vine the pro
duct weighed 9 lbs. 2 ounces.
Larger Still. —A correspondent at Kennedy
ville, Kent county, Md. informs us that he recent
ly visited the neighborhood of Wye Mills, Queen
Anne's county, Md. where Mr. J. C. Hopkins re
siding on the farm of the late Jacob Richardson,
has raised ten sweet potatoes, this season, which
weigh 60 lbs. an average of 6 lbs. apiece. Queen
Annes is, thus far, ahead.
More Burglars Tooiæ Discovirbd. —On Satur
day evening last, while Mr. R. H. Foster,
the Town Commissioners, was repairing a bridge,
a few rods west of the Railroad, he discovered
under the bridge, securely wrapped up in paper,
the following tools supposed to have been depos
ited there by burglars at the time of their entry
of the Bank :—Two small saws, one a key-hole
saw ; two cold-chisels ; two drills ; 24 wedges
one steel crowbar ; one large copper hammer ;
the remnants of a horse-blanket, and two pairs
of new gum shoes. Sometime after the burglary
Mr. John McLcary discovered a bag containing
a number of such implements. It bad been hid
den under a pile of railroad ties, near bis house
The burglars evidently came well provided with
tools, and they no doubt intended to clean the
Bank out. But a lady in the next house happen
ing to bear a noise, lit a lamp, aud thus saved
the money safe from their depredations.

Penn, Townsend, Blackbird ana Smyrna, and
all the neighboring towns in Maryland.
About 2, p. u. the meeting was called to order
by Dr. Swithin Chandler, who introduced Hon.
James A. Bayard. Mr. Bayard spoke over an
hour, reviewing the policy of the Radical party
in conferring the elective franchise upon tho ne
gro race, presenting in a logical and conclusive
manner, the evils which must ensue unless suck
a policy is reversed. He demonstrated the itP
capacity of the negro for self government, point
ing to Jamaica, and to «very other place where
the experiment has been tried, as proof that the
negro is sure to deteriorate, unless in contact
with white
He has been only a slave and
a subordinate, from the records or memorials of
the earliest civilization, down to the present hour,
and from his very nature he can never be any
thing else.
At the close of his speech a committee of one
from each Hundred was appointed to draft reso
lutions expressive of the sense of the meeting.
Hon. B. T. Biggs was then introduced, and
made a lucid expose of the extravagance of the
present Administration, giving facts aud figures,
to the comprehension of all who heard him.
The committee on resolutions reported the fol
lowing, which were adopted unanimously.
1. Resolved, That we warmly endorse the
tion of the Iftte Democratic State Coveution held
at Dover, and approve the expression of political
issues as set forth in the resolutions thero adopt
2. That the nomination of the Hon. James
Ponder of Sussex county, for Govenorof the State
of Delaware, meets with the cordial assent of the
Dcmocmccy of New Castle County, who will
render him a hearty and willing support.
3. That the nomination for Representative in
Congress of tho Hon. Benjamin T. Biggs, is an
act of justice alike to the party, and the candi
date, whose action and honorable exertions as
our Representative, entitle him to this expression
of our unreserved confidence and esteem.
4. That in the nominees for county offices and
the Legislature, we recognize citizens of unim
peachable character and intelligence, whose ful
fillment of private and public trusts heretofore,
guarantees their honest and capable performance
of the duties to which we trust they will be called
by the cittzens of this county.
5. That in the presence of a body of armed
troops at the polls of a regular, peaceful and or
derly election, in the city of Philadelphia, we re
cognize alarming evidence of the lawless violence,
and intimidation of oq$ people, which have be
come favorite agencies with the Radical party in
their schemes to retain political power, and that
it becomes the freemen of this country to de
nounce »8 we do now, and defy such unlawful
and miserable attempts to control elections by
military force.
6. That we earnestly urge upon all white
who value the perpetuity of our institutions, aud
who believe ip the supremacy of their own race
to unite with us in our endeavors to defeat the
lawless and revolutionary attempts of the radical
party to africanize tho political power of
lion. Thomas F. Bayard was then introduced
to the audience. He pointed out tho encroach
ments of Congress upon the co-ordinate branches
of the government, and dwelt upon the alarming
fact that it hpd trodden under foot the checks and
balances of the Constitution, disregarding the
prerogatives of the Executive, and aiming to re
duce the Judiciary to a state of party subservien
cy. Mr. Bayard spoke with earnestness and
emphasis upon these abuses of a Radical Con
gress, and was listened to throughout by his au
ditors, atnoug whom were many Republicans,
with respectful attention.
Coi. James Ponder, candidate for govenor,
being present, was then introduced to the audi
ence. Aftern respectful salutation lie said as
the audience hud listened to scverul able speech
es, and the hour was growing late, they would
not expect a speech from him. He then bowed
and retired.
Mr. J. Frank Hazell, of Smyrna, was then called
to the stand. He spoke about ten or fifteen min
utes, paying a handsome tribute to the speakers
who preceded him, and then paid his repects to
