MORN 1W4. ! oi jnjkusj. it: ■ s KtM .. *> ** at * a Waahiagtoa, of a re al that a delegatioa of IS do tfn-trodden, pillaged A State af Stwh Carolina visited _Onset, a few days ago, to ia vns lim of their great grievances, and to iihpWC appaal for Federal interposition ia their behalf. Of eoarsa, their tale of ■wot WCs ist prsrioasly unknown tu lbs » PrseMent. They eommuniealed no "new information" to him, on that point. No sat, ia tisie eouatry, kaows better thac F reaident Graut the degradation to which «he policy of the Radical party, as em bodied ia the Reoonstructioa Acts, and anfotaed by his minions, has brought tbe mhtSs people of South Carolina and other Southern State#. The whole thing was pl o wed with premeditated malice, and ha* been executed with deliberate fiendish m .>• ns**. Tbe set*It• obtained wer« antici pated aud desired. The President it reported to bava ea prasMtd great ipayaliy for lb* helpless sod impur risked taxpayers, and said be bad no doubt their governments are vary bad. Of euursa, he kaows that they sr* utterly cor rupt, aad as despotic as hatred and iguo Tsocsuaa make thorn. Nobody knows the facts batter than Präsident Grant, but, it is said, b* replied that "be did not see how they could be helped." Oh, no! these are white men wbo are now calling for aid, and there ii no help for a dist retted white man from a Radical Adminiitration. Tbe sympathies and affections of Radicals ar* for negroes only. . The President could call upon Congress to eiolb* biin with tbs despotic power to sospend tbe writ of Habeas Corpus in a time of peace and in violation of tbe con ctilntion, and an obeequioua Congreaa tould grant tbe request, when that power «es to be excreised, as it was most relentlessly, to bernse, arrest, convict and «•prison white men in tbe interest of ne gro** ; but he does not see bow be can protect white men from the confessedly knd goverument. of plundering oarpet bnggers end beastly negroes. Alas for the rarity Of Radical charity— to white folks. Truly the Radieale "love dnrbnes* rather than light," donbtlesa be cants "their deeds are evil." But our chief object iu calling attention fol condition ef tbe tn the present Southern Ststea ia to abow that it ia a meat remarkable and literal fulfillment of prophecy. Net, it ia true, ■ prophecy to be found in tbe eaered writings, whose authors wer* direetly inspired by Divini ty. but the prediction of a great geaius, who, iu knowledge of the science of gov ernment, ba* never been surpassed in an cieut or utoderu times. Of wh ite "Dis quisition on Government" it baa bean re marked by one of tbe moat pbilosopbical Statesmen of our day, that "it will outlive th* Inngnaga in which it waa written." W* allude to tbe great Southerner, John (J. Calbouu— clarum et venerabiU nomen. In th* "Addrcaa of the Southern Dele gate* tn Congress, to their CoostitneDta," written confessedly by Mr. Calboan, in February 1819. a quarter of a etntury a go, this paragraph occur* :— If it (amaaeipatian of tbe slaves) ebould sr b* (Seated, it will ba through tha racy of the Federal Government, coo ky th* dominant powar of the Northern State* of tba Confederacy, a gainat th* roaiatanea and strength of the Southern.

So a. traveller through tbe lately prosperous and happy South, when reading of "tbe permanent abode of dis order, anereby, poverty, misery and wretchedness" will sorrowfully say— they art here I Anti-Liquor Movement in Wilming ton. A "crusade" against the liquor traffic has been begun by tbs ladies of Wiltniug ton. Not after tha style end manner of tbs women of tbe West,but in a way which will, probably, have a better aad niera lasting effect. At a meeting on Wednes day afternoon last they formed themselves into a Tcuiperuooe Society, " determined to use every rightful means within their power to> atop tbs commerce of death." A paper styled "The Voice of the Clergymen against Aloebel " was presented to, and readily signed by, tbe various minister* of tbs city pretesting against th* sale of intoxisating drinks, and resolutions were adopted pledging the members of tbe so ciety against tbs use of iutoxicating li quors in any shape, and against patroniz ing grocers and others wbo sell liquors or who bave signed applieations for liecnas to drinkiug places. Petitions were prepared far presentation to Congress and tbe State Legislature for stringent enactments sgainet the importa tion, manufacture and sale of liquors.— And, also, to the Superior Court against tbe granting of any licenses for tbe sale of liqnor, &c. While we do not endorse til that is con tained in tbe preamble and resolutions a dopted by the Wilmingtou ladies we com mend their course as far preferable to tba unfeminins method in which tbs "crusada" is carried on at the West, and other parts of tbs country We have been surprised at tbe Urge number of "Notices of inten tion to apply for License" to sell liquors that have appeared in the Wilmington pa pers. However much tbs necessities of tbe travelling public may require tbe sale of liquor at Hotels, there certainly can be no necessity for the many rum boles,called "saloons," for whiob license is asked, and if our impartial Court will be as stiict at tbs approaching term in Now Castle Coun ty as tbsy wert ia Sussex last October, and refuse license to all such places, they will merit the approbation af tba entire people of tbe county as wall as of Wil mington. cy in The Befiulta of Radical Rule. ]From the Wilmington Advertiser.] Three great commonwealths, South Car olina, Mississippi and Louisiana, present to tbe calm observer a picture without par allel in tbe history of the past fifteen hun dred years. Since tk* barbarian* burst into tbe Homan world, and with their con quering »words, overturned tbe culture and civilization wbioh gave t* civilized man—laws, liberty, art, arms, literature and poetry, no »oh calamitous event baa taken place, as tbe proeexa of barbarising, now going on in tbe States named.

It ii couoeded that the white people are fleeing away from negro rule, iu tbe States named. Three uegro commouwealtb* are sure to arise—they now exist in those unfortunate Slates.— With th* example of Hayti, Sau Domingo aud Jamais* before our eyes, it requires no prephet to foretell ugly secues and con flict* in the near future. Tbe nogro mode of rule is not our way—bis want* are not such as press upon ua—bisdeinauda in the future will be certain to smack of tbo bar barian. and one of the recuits oertaiu to eome will be a re-conquest of those States from the negroes by whit* men.
