-The last action of any consequence of Mr.
Thaddeus. Stevens, at the last session of Con?
gress, was the introduction of new articles of j
impeachment. He did not prece them on the
attention of the House, but rath er desired to
. bave thora in readiness for use at any time.
They are now of course obsolete, and will be
remembered only aa an evidence of the persis?
tency of purpose of the Radical leader.
-A New York paper says that imitation has
beeb carried to Its culminating point in the
matter of. jewelry and trinkets. In several
Broadway stores there is now to be seen a dis?
play of pearls that would drive Cleopatra to
drink were abe there to see them. They are
made of steel. The fictitious amethysts, emer
a!is,. rubies and all. other stones that are ac?
counted precious, mounted in fictitious gold,
' would deceive the scrutiny even of an expert.
"'-A circular bas been' issued by General
B uohananv informing* the planters of his mili
. tary district, who have received supplies from
- fh? freedmen's .Bure au, thai they must. fulfil
the letter of their bonds and ship their entire
crops to. the factors in New Orleans, designa?
ted in a- pre viona order. Any agent of the
Bureau, he says, assisting or attempting to
assist a planter to evade lus obligation in this
matter, of who; suspecting chat a planter is at?
tempting to evade "them, does not take all
proper measures in his power to prevent the
same, will be dismissed. '.
-A system of co-operative life insurance
which has been in successful operation in some
of the burge cities of Europe far-several years,
has-been iruroduced in New York. The object
of thb '?co-operative plan .is "to secure s cash
payment within forty days after the death of a
member, of as many dollars as there are mem?
bers in- tba class to which hs or she belongs, to
the heirs." -Themembers are divided info ten
classes according to their ages. Each mem?
ber pays 'an initiation fee of six dollars. In.
case of the death of a member, and supposing'
that in tho class to which he belongs' there are
five thousand members, "the association prom?
ises to pay over within forty days five thousand
doDara to the widow or heirs, and the remain?
ing members forward, within thirty days, one
dollar and ten cents each to the association to
reimburse it. failing to send this sum they
forfeit to the association all moneys paid, and
the^^ociation supplies a new member in the
place ol the retired one."
-The New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger snufis war in Europe. Writing
on the 13th mst. he says : "Large purchases of
. hay have just been made in this market on ac?
count of the French Government. This fact?
together with recent heavy purchases of horses
for the same party, and the enormous accumu?
lation of bullion in the Bank of France (equal
to $250,000,000 gold now) is looked upon by not
a few of the longest heads, in financial and
business enroles here, as indicative of a coming
war, notwithstanding the Emperor's protesta?
tions that the empire is peace. Private letters
from intelligent sources on the other sido fall
in with this expectation. They say there is
much dissatisfaction of a political character
beginning to manifest itself in very unmistak
abja-forms among the masses (though the pub
' J?? journals are silent on the subject}, and that
tbs Emperor, to avert trouble at borne, may
deem it politic to get up a war with his neigh?
bors; That, we are assured, is the certain drift
of all bis later movements."
-The ahed? built by the Pacifie Railroad to
protect their track from the deep snows of the
Sierra Nevada mountains were crushed by the
weight of scow that fell upon them last winter,
and it was reported that some other method of I
protection would have to be devised. This
plan, however, has not been abandoned. 0 The
company, it is slated, are now engaged in
erecting sheds over the cuttings and other ex?
posed points. They are of heavy timber frame?
work, with pointed gable roofs, and look as
though they could withstand almost any pres?
sure of snow. Nearly forty miles of the track
will have to be thus covered, and the quantity
of timber required will be enormous. Not lesa
than twenty-two saw mills, most of them
worked by steam, are run night and day, em?
ploying nearly two thousand men, and yet they
do not work up to the needs of the company.
In a few wseks twenty-eight mills will be run?
ning. It is estimated thai it will require no
less than eight hundred thousand feet of lum?
ber to construct a mile of sheds. So great is
the demand that the forests on both sides of j
the track are being rapidly cut down.
-A correspondent writes that the very ex?
treme of the present Paris toilette prevails at
Saratoga to-day, or rather aa imitation which
might be called a burlesque or extravaganza of j
an antique style. Not a bell or swell hoop is to
be lound where once an army of them was in
motion. The chignon is norn on top of the
bead, with two switches inserted in the hair
about thirty degrees balow the key of the
arch os each aide of the centre, which form
pendants like the horns of a goat, or, tobe
more precise, like those of a chamois. The
dress has a medium waist adapted to a hoop
somewhat of tho shape of a barrel; large at the
contre and small' at each end, with a backward
swell to assisi in forming a train. A large
but 'e,or 'Ranier," is worn at the topofjthe
hoop, upon-which is gathered up five or six
yards of material in a kind of bundle. This is
called the "blanchisseuse," or washer-woman's
-style, but really resembles the humps of a
earners back. Across the lower hips, below
this "panier," a band extends. It will thus be
seen that we have the most extraordinary toil
let known in the realms of fashion for the last
two hundred years.
TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 18. 1868.
For President,.HORATIO SEYMOUR.
For rice-President.FRANCIS P. BLAIR.
Tbe Antagonism of Race-Black against
In South Carolina there are about eighty
thousand colored men who hare the privi?
lege of voting, and this grand Republican
ermy. which has had the political control
of the State, has succeeded in securing for
one colored man-Cardoma-a high and re?
sponsible position. . The colored men could
elect men of their own race to any office in
South Carolina; but they show their disin?
terestedness hy electing white judges, white
sheriffs, white clerks of court, white Uni?
ted States senators and white United States
representatives. They are the' physical
strength, while the white' Radicals repre?
sent neither honesty, property nor intelli?
gence, nor the power of holding a plough.
Yet the colored men allow the hearts of
.their colored chieftains-Whipper, Wright,
Ran si er, Elliott, Nash and DeLarge-to grow
sick with the hope deferred, of their pay,
as members of the Legislature, while such
weak or criminal white Radicals as BOWEN,
SAWTEK, MOSES, COSLEY and Goss enjoy
the.solid sweets of office, and grow fat upon
the spoils which should have fallen to the
share of their darker but more straightfor?
It was time for this to end, unless the
negro was were to become an everlasting
puppet in the hands of the adventurers and
renegades, and the passage, by one branoh
pf the Legislature, of the bill to prevent
discrimination on account of color, is an in?
dication that the colored men are at last
determined to enjoy all the advantages to
which their numbers and votes entitle thom.
The hill was expected to exoite some opposi?
tion and the debate was hot and fierce; but
the plain question of black against white was
at issue, and, with five exceptions, the whole
of the colored members voted in favor of
During the debate, which was published
in full in THE NEWS of yesterday, expres?
sions fell from the lips of the speakers,
which show beyond doubt what are the
purposes of the opposing wings of the Rad?
Bozeman, colored, who opened the debate,
said that ."the issue was a vital one and
"should be settled at once." William E.
Johnson, colored, who followed him, said :
"Perhaps on some future day I shall come
"here to Columbia, and there may not be
"any private boarding house, and being a
"gentleman, I may call at Nickerson's Ho
"tel. If I do so I don't want to be refused.
"I want the right and privilege of going
"into that house, no matter who it is kept
"by, and having myself cared for as well
"as any other guest of the house." This
was distinct and emphatic enough, and Mr.
FEERITEE, of Sumter, one of the class usu?
ally palled . scalawags, planted himself in
opposition. He said : "The moment this
"matter becomes a-question of color it will
"drive a great portion of the white Repub
<-Heans out of the party, it will array race
"against race, and furnish the best argument
"that the Democratic party can use. It may
"destroy hotels altogether, and interrupt
"every species of business which depends
"for its life upon a license. Why should South
"Carolin!. go in advance of Massachusetts ?
"When this bill is brought to a vote there
"are white men on this floor who will not
"have the manliness to oppose it." De
Large, ene of the mulatto members, called
Mr. FKEBITER to order because he spoke of
members at "tobite men." Mr. FEBBITEB
said : "The member may find as much fault
"as he pleases; but I tell him that the day
"the question is made one of color I shall
"take sides with my own race. I will not
"register my vote in favor of springing so
"suddenly an issue fraught with disastrous
"results. You have only a temporary ma
"jority. There is no emigration from
"Africa, and your population increases but
"slowly, while the white man with wealth,
"intelligence and energy, every day adds to
"the strength and influence of his race.
"You are, therefore, engaged in a most dan?
gerous procedure. My advice is, let this
"bill alone. I shall vote against it."
DeLarge, a shrewd mulatto, who pretends
to be a firm friend and ally of the white
people, followed Mr. FEBBITEB, showing by
his words that he, too, had given way, and,
with natural instinct, espoused the cause of
his race. He said, the argument used by
the preceding speaker "is an appeal to
"every colored man on this floor to vote for
"the bill without hesitation or modification.
"He has driven in the very wedge he seems
"to dread BO much." George Lee, another
colored man, came next in support of the bill,
his principal argument being that when the
Legislature went to Greenville some time
ago on an excursion, the members had no
place to which to go for a lodging. R. B.
Elliott, another negro, said : "That gentle?
man (Mr. FEBBITEB) has drawn a distinct
"line between the races on this floor. He
"has told us that when the issue is made be?
tween the white and the colored man he will
"be found on the Bide of his own race. I
"do not blame him; but I Bay that when he
"or any other man draws that line of dis?
tinction, I also stand with my race." But
this was not enough, and he continued as
follows : "I desire to notice some of his re
"marks, briefly but plainly. The gentle
"man alluded to suffrage in Massachusetts,
"a State which, I thank God, I am able to
"claim as the place of my nativity. He
"tells us that we have an educational qual
"ification connected with, the suffrage

These expressions show the existen
the never-dying antagonism between
Irishman and the negro. What now
be thought of the Irishmen of Charle
few though they be, who have joine<
negro party ?
Mr. STOEBER, of Marion, a white Be
lican, announced his opinion that the
was inexpedient, and said that he w
not vote in ita favor. The Rev. B. F. J.
sos, a white carpet-bagger, then tool
the cudgel and after eulogizing New 1
land and the Republican party, and
nouncing expediency, said : "This iset
"plainly before us, not merely as a SI
"but as a nation. Shall the reconstruc
"policy of Congress be sustained ? 1
"policy is based upon justice and e<
"rights, and the question is : will the
"lion fulfil the obligations which it
"made ? For two hundred years our ]
"pie have made discriminations on acco
"of race and color. Four millions of i
"pie have been crushed in the dust. T.
"have waited and waited, and waited
"justice, and still the gentleman from Si
"ter (Mr. FJCRBITXB) says, 'Wait I we
"not ready!' Great God! have they
"waited long enough ? Have they
"borne their bardens, shed their tears t
"worn their stripes long enough to
"entitled to justice at last? What mi
"have we to wait for? I say, let us w
"no longer, bat grasp the fruit which Pr
"idenoe has given to us. The gentlem
"has said that the oolored people of 4
"South enjoy their privileges by the soff
"an:e of tho white man, and, thereto
"they should not demand an enlargen?
"of these privileges. Sir, they do not a
"this boon as a charity-as a beggar aa
"for bread-bat as men they demand it
"a right which the Republican party I
"pledged itself to bestow.
He denied that the bill contempl?t
social equality, and proved his position
these words : "If two men sleep in a hot
"or sit at the same table, or are guee
"under the same roof, or travel ia tl
"same conveyance, the idea of social equi
"ity is not necessarily involved. It is n
"so under the present circumstances, ai
"no law that wo can make will force it upi
"the people. This is a question that mu
"regulate itself, and depends solely upi
"the mental culture, oharacter and habi
"of those Who may be brought into soci
"relation. It cannot be regulated by law.
Whipper, of Beaufort, a very black ai
very able negro, said : "The gentleman fro
"Sumter says it (the bill) will break ap tl
"hotels. If he will go with us to the kitcl
"ea of a first-class hotel he will see thei
"a big black maa handling the meat that
"to be eaten in the dining room. Go to tl
"dining room, and he will find him pas sin
"over the plates with all the familiarity i
"the world. Go to a first-class barber
"shop, and you submit to his manipulation:
"even to the taking hold of that infallibl
"thermometer, the human nose.
"We are told that this measure will de
"feat the election of GRAST and COLFAX
"My reply is this : That if doing right wil
"defeat GRANT and COLFAX, let them b
"defeated. If we have got to stoop am
"cater to the prejudices of men, in orde
"to effect such an object, it were bette
"they had not been born."
The vote was then taken on a verba
amendment by Whipper, and the scene ii
described by our reporter in these words
"Many of the negro members were so ex
"cited that they shouted, 'Yes, yes, yes!
1 Others simply said, 'Yes, forever.' The
"latter seemed the most popular response.
"Several white men attempted to explain
their vote, but were not permitted to do
"so. Several colored men enjoyed the
"privilege without objection. The issue
"made was purely one of race."
The Democratic members attempted to
obtain the floor, bat ia vaia, aor were any
white men allowed to explain their nega?
tive votes. Wilder, a oolored man, did,
however, catoh the eye of the Speaker pro
tem.-A. J. Ronsier, a oolored man-and
said : "He deemed the whole thing unwise
"and calculated to do an immense amount
"of harm to his race." The bill then pass?
ed, eight whites and fifty-three blacks vot?
ing aye, and nineteen whites and five blacks
voting no. The title of the bill is "A bill to
"prevent discrimination between persons
"by those carrying on business under li
"cense, on account of race, color or previ?
ous condition." It includes all ohartered
companies, and the penalty for its violation
is a fine of not less than $1000 and impris?
onment for not less than twelve months.
The passage of this bill means social
equality and something more. It means
that the negro representatives of the negro
majority have resolved that they will exer?
cise all the power which their numbers give
them. It means that they will demand
negro judges, negro magistrates, negro
mayors and aldermen, negro congressmen,
and, when the time comes, a negro gov?
ernor. The colored voters have been
cajoled by the white Radicals for three
years, and they will be cajoled no longer.
They are determined to make a stand-up
fight for the supremacy of their race. They
say now-"Let Radicalism perish or
