CAMPBELL & M'DEEMOT:
EDITOIIH AND PBOPRIKTORS.
MATCADAY MORX1SO, DEC. 23.
It Is the studious aitn of a class of
papers In the South such as .the Rich
mond Enquirer, Examiner and Time*,
to create the impression that a despot
ism exists in this country; that liberty
exists only in name; that the South is
to the North what Ireland Is to England
or Hungary to Austria. They labor to
insinuate and suggest In every pos
sible way that the condition of things
now existing forbids a restoration of
the Union?that there can be no real
restoration of the Union?that the com
panionship must be an unwilling one.
The editors seem bent on inspiring a
hope that some day the issue of the war
in whole or in part will change in favor
of the South?that, in the language of
Wendell Phillips, the South after all
will emerge victorious from the contest.
They claim that the North is now afraid
to trust the Sooth In Congress, and
they usk whether we ox poet to chknge
the South by keeping her out? Whether
it is not more likely that we will only
exacerbate her present temper by so
doing. The longer wo keep her out the
more disaffected she will lieooinc, is the
argument of these papers, and if wo ad
mit her now she bus no pledgesto make
as to what she will attempt to do. The
papers alluded to call upon the South
ern representatives one and nil to re
tire from Washington and fall back on
fhelr dignity and their constituents.
Let the North rule us to their fill, is the
language employed. Let them make
all the laws and let us simply show
them by our stubborn, unyielding and
implacable resentments how far they
an* from having restored that Union f?>r
which they havo made such tremen
dous sacrifices.
The foregoing is an outline of the
programme upon which the leading
rebel papers in the South are now pro
??ceding. They represent in this pro
gramme a large class of influential per
sons who feel that at any price what
ever the prestige of the South prior to 1
and during the war, must Iw maintain- I
ed. To give up their rebellions status I
?to acquiesce cordially and in good j
faith in the new order of things?is to j
invite, in their judgments, odium
upon their antecedents and taint upon
their future. This the leading public
men atthe South,especially in Virginia,
feel that they cannot afford. Hence the !
key note so lately sounded in the lead- j
ing and most able papers finds a very
ready and decided response from the :
politicians. There is a hope among j
them that eithor through a foreign war j
or through the intestine feuds of the 1
Republican party, the South will gain
the grand points for which she strug
gled in the war. President Johnson is
looked to, though not without many
misgivings, as a friend. The Emperor !
Napoleon is preferred over the Presi
dent as a more radical and congenial'
ally, 'llie democracy of the North are
us ever, the last and forlorn hope. The
rebel loaders can never give over their
feeling that the democracy are always
the natural allies of slavery and rebel
lion. They can count upon the willing
ness and sulwervioncy of the democra
cy in success or defeat.
Taking this programme as our guide
it is easy enough to understand the in
flammatory articles with which the
Southern press havo begun to teem.
Everywhere they are raising the same
voice. The attempt is being made to
unite tlio South lu favor of this policy
by holding up to acorn every prominent
man who shows signs of "giving In,"
as those papers call it, to the Yankee
order of things. In North Carolina the
military authorities have been com
pelled to commence n raid upon the
disloyal sheet*. We have souio speci
mens of the rebel utterances down there
before us. We notice In the Charlotte
7'imc.t an editorial rutining thus:
44Th? South is now under n more
grinding despotism than has heretofore
found it place on the face of the earth.
? * ? Other nations, while suffering
uuder the iron lieel of lawless tyranny,
can console themselves with the rettcc
tion that their condition Is uo worse
than that of their predecessors, rhe
Russian serf, as he eats his bread of
dependence, knows that such was the
inheritance lea him by bis father. Not
ao with the proud, high-souled South
ron. He once roamed his fiolds a free
man, and sat 'uuder his own vine and
tic tree, and none dared make him
afraid.* He was the equal, if not the
superior of the mercenary race that uow
dominates over him."
The paper in which this article ap
pears is edited by Its old conductors
who did so much to convince the peo
ple of North Carolina before the war
that they were living under a despot
ism. The editors found no freedom lu
the old as they find none in the new ,
Union. What Is to bo done with such
men? What is to l?o done with those
for whom they eater? Are we to take
them into tho Government and tell
them to mould its policy! Are we, in
other words, to give up to such men, 1
simply because they refuse to be re"
condlcd to tho Union? Since one ele
ment or the other is to rule in this land,
ought it to be those who were success
ful or those who were defeated in the
war? To be compelled to hold the
South by armed occupation is certainly
not an agreeable prospect to the
mind of any American. We trust?
that the' loyal Stan's will not be |
compelled to thus maintain the
Uulon. There is no reason why they
should be after the keen edge or the
recent strife wears away. The great
cause of all our difficulties is wiped
out, and why should tho two sections,
both now free, be aliens ? Community
of language, laws, religion, and the
great arts of commerce and trade, will 1
unite us sooner or later, as we devoutly j
believe. But at all events the Union |
will be maintained. There are worse !
things to eoutemplato than holding the
South forever by armed occupation. A
dismemberment of the Union would be
intiuitely worse. Tho people will never
tolerate two nations within these States.
We will bo one in name if not in heart.
The South will be held and ruled. She
will be compelled to pay taxes and to
conform to the laws in all respects. She
can do as she, pleases about sending
representatives to Washington or hold- '
iug elections and otherwise harmonic-:
ing herself. That is a matter for her
concern, not ours. It is well enough to j
let her pout now. Let her represent*
tives go home since they cannot take |
the oath taken by xll who are in Con- j
gross. If she elects better men they
will bo admitted in *11 doe time. TW
loval States are uot to be bullied into a
surrender of the principles involved in
the war. The rebellious States are the
defeated party. The issues made by
them are obliterated. The victorrf and
not the vangulshed have tho right to
say what shall be the policy of the whole
country?a policy that shall operate

The speech of Mr. Stevens, of Fenn
sylvanla, In the House, on Monday
was in subatanoe the same with his
cent Lancastar speech, with confisca
tion omitted. He contended that the
lately rebel Stau. .re not in the Union
and if again admitted they must come
. n as territories. He would not consent
to their readmission until they give
aoprage to the negroes and accept an
I amendment to the constitution basing
? representation upon voters instead of
population. The effect of the speech
j was much marred by the frequent
! avowal that the object of his policy is
to secure the continued ascendency of
; the republican party, and he seemed to
think it conclusive against the Presi
dent's plan that it affords the demo
crats a chance to gain power by a new
, alliance with the South. The following
? are the striking points of the speech -

3iJ?' Ti government for them.
Since the conquest they have been gov
. erned by martial law. Military ruio is
necessarily despotic, and ought not to
exist longer than Is alisolutely neces
, sary. As there are no symptoms that
tne people of tiiese provinces will be
prepared to participate in a constitu
tional government for bouio years I
know of no arrangement ho proper for
them as territorial governments. There

judgment thev ought never to bo recoil

or being counted as valid Slates until

intended, so as to secure a perpetual i
