Sunday Morning, September 9,1866.
A Sensible Address.
Tho Danville (Va.) News contains
an interesting report of an address
recently delivered to the freedmen of
that city by "Lucius ?fury, one of their
number, formerly a slave.
The object of the . address, tho
News says, was to impress upon the
minds of the fteadmen the impor?
tance of a correct understanding ol
their true relations to the white men
of the South, whom he represented
aa being their only true friends. He
strove to show them the necessity of
cultivating friendly relations wita
the whites, by a course of life which
would entitle them to their kind con?
sideration, and make it their interest
to reclaim them as laborers, instead
of employing foreign immigrants
who are flocking into tho country.
Their only chance now, he urged,
was to depend on their own industry,
honesty and frugality, without which
they must become more deeply de?
graded than eyer, and their race ul?
The most striking part of his ad?
dress is that in which he criticises
and ridicules tho forced and unnatu?
ral zeal of Northern emissaries, who
profeoS to be the only friends of the
race, and this was received by every
manifestation of delight and ap?
plause by his audience. Thc New
York World, in noticing this very in?
telligent and sensible address, says:
"What this sensible and honest
freedman preached to his fellows, is
only what would have represented
the feeling of the entire colored popu?
lation of the South, had fanatical
emissaries never been sent among
them to poison their minds against
those who mnst always be tlieir
neighbors, if not their employers,
and to fill them with all sorts of false
notions, foreign to their nature or
desires, and which they can never
hope to seo realized."
Wo hail these evidences of good
sense, among the freedmen, with
great pleasure. They assure us that,
notwithstanding the efforts which
have been mado to demoralize them
and lead them astray, there is still a
correct idea left amongst the most
intelligent, of their true position and
their just relations towards those
with whom they are associated in the
business of every-daylife. The more
of such healthful reaction among
themselves and the less of Freed?
men's Bureau interference, the sooner
will the difficult question of labor
aud capital bo satisfactorily adjusted
in tho South.
We trust that July's example will
be followed by the intelligent freed?
men among ns, and in every section
of the South. By adopting and fol?
lowing it, they will more effectually
secure the peaceful enjoyment of
their rights, than bj the operation of
a thousand civil rights bills-passed
by their canting and hypocritical
friends in the radical Congress.
Oreen-ville and Columbia. Railroad,
We extract thc following from the
Greenville Enterprise, and congratu?
late tho officers of the Company on
We learn that the bridge over the
Broad River, at Alston, upon which
tho Company's efforts have for so
long a time been directed, has at last
been completed, the first train cross?
ing the early part of this week.
This is a consummation upon which
tho public will congratulate them?
selves, as well as President Hammett,
as the inconvenience and delay so
long endured by passengers, when
reaching that point, will be entirely
Wo have been assured that in o
short time Mr. Hammet^ who has o
great and feeling consideration of the
wants aud necessities of the people,
and especially of the poorer classes,
will direct a reduction of tho freights
of the road materially, and more par?
ticularly with reference to provision?
and articles of prime necessity. In
this those who now find such difficul?
ty in supplying themselves and fami?
lies with sustenance, will have cause
to hold np their hands in gratitude to
Mr. H. In anticipation of this,
prices have, within tho last few days,
fallen 20 per cent. Corn, selling a
week ago at 62.60, can be procured
now at $2; bacon, which had been
selling at 30 cents per pound, was
offered on the streets, on Friday, in
small lots, at 21 cents.
Heretofore, the rates on the road
wore necessarily high, as the Com?
pany have had much to encountoi
and contend with in heavy charges
for the transx>ortation of all goode
crossing tho river. The schednlo be?
tween this and Columbia will soon be
?.hanged, and the entire hue will be
ran over in a less space of time,
thereby insuring another relief to the
ttee'^?^rmbcr* T""^^fce'a??gis*sl3?i?r . ]
GENTLEMEN: Yon are now acting
ui??er a grat? pr?ssu^. * ^Popular ctji
raor, pity for the tliatress ?f out peo?
ple, individual indobtedttess among
ycmrrorwrs, sind Ibat thirst for pop?,
lar?ty which rules' too many-all are
operating to make yon fail to give a
proper regard to law and justice. But a
proper self-respect is ol more value
to a true mau than a short-lived
popularity, that often, in tho end,
product? for its possessor contempt,
and contempt only. It you aim at
true, lasting popularity, i/o your duty.
In this spirit you mini meet all
the claims for stay laws and other
measures intended to obstruct the
course of the law. Great harm has
already been don? by tbo late stay
law: be careful that you do-not entail
further and greater ills upon the
State by hasty and ill-advised legis?
lation. It is proposed in the House,
"2. Abolition of imprisonment for
debt cither on mesne or final pro?
cess." "What does this mean? Does
not everybody know that we have no
imprisonment for debt, properly so
called, except for the debtor con?
victed of dishonesty, or who will not
rave np his nnleviable property for
the payment of his just debts? Under
our humano laws, no honest debtor
can bo confined for more than ten
days; if he has any friends, ho cannot
be confined a single day. Is our Le
gislature to pass laws for the benefit
of the dishonest?
Let the following have some consi?
deration: By our bail process and
ca. sa,, notes and other choses in ac?
tion, and, in general, all property not
subject to levy, aro made liable for
ono's debts. Yon can constitution?
ally abolish all imprisonment of tho
person by itself considered; but if, at
the same time, you do not provide
some way by which the above stated
nnleviable property can be reached,
you impair the obligation of all ex?
Again, you can pass no exemption
law that will affect jxist contracts.
Again, you can pass no bankrupt law
discharging the debtor from all liabil?
ity for any debt contracted previous
to the passage of such law, beyond as
now provided. It may be well for
the present exemption law to bo en?
larged, and for a bankrupt law to bo
passed enabling a debtor, upon the
surrender of all his property, to bo
discharged from all his debts; but it
is useless for yon to attempt to make
these laws apply lo already existing
contracts. They must be prospective
in their operation. WOLSEY.
Wo published, ou Thursday, the
remarks of Gen. Forrest on taking
the chair of thc great ratification
meeting at Memphis. Below, wo
give a brief report of a speech from
Gen. Stonemnn, who was also present
at this meeting:
FRIENDS ANT? FHLLOW-COVNTI?YMEN:
You have called before yon, not n
partizan or a politician, but a simple
citizen of the Government of the
United States, knowing no North,
no South, no East, no West. The
war in which the people of this great?
est of all countries has been engaged
during the past eventful years is end?
ed-thc issues upon which that wai
was based are settled. If there is
anything to forgive, let it bc for?
given ; it* there is anything to be for?
got, let it bo forgotten. Let us all
recollect that we have but ono coun?
try and one flag. Tho object foi
which we are all assembled here to?
night is, as I undcrstal?Ht, recon?
struction and ro-union. You may
force a separated man and wife to
live in the same house, lodge in thc
same room, but they will never bc
re-united as man and wife until they
I have first become reconciled. J* said
. the war was ended. As we were ene?
mies in war, let us be again friends;
and in this sentiment 1 know that
none will join me moro heartily than
the gallant and distinguished presi?
dent of this assemblage. The bravery
i that was displayed during the past 1 >v
each one engaged in the war, let it be
the common property of nil. We
j soldiers who did tho righting aro re
I conciled, and want peace and harmo
? ny, and we call upon you editors and
: orators of tho land to aid us with
your pens and tongues. Preachers
of the Gospel, whoso solemn obliga.
i tion is to preach peace and good will,
o ask your prayers and invocations,
i ..id from you, politicians, wo de?
mand that you sholl cease your
wrangling and allow tho good work
to go on until our object is attuned.
i And you, fair maidens and noble ma
i trons, who, during the fighting,
cheered ns with your smiles ami
frightened us with your frowns, lend
t ns the potency of your power in the
accomplishment ot a work so laudable
and so noble. As I am not a candi
I date for your suffrages, nor nevercx
: peet to be, nor over east a vote for
President in my life, you will not ex
1 peet me to define my position; but
this mnch I will say: I havo been n
? member of a citlb for near a quarter
i of a century, and which was organized
i three-quarters of a century ago. By
the Constitution of that club, its Pre
i sidon t is elected every four years.
i Its first President was George Wash
idgton; its present President is An

John Minor Botts, vice-President.

We do not see that Fred? Pftwflffcsti
was appointed to any office in the
Convention : r l? ^UtftUfa* i
I In taking Iiis seat, Mr. Speed said '
the convention of the 14th of August
was merely to record the commands
of one man. They did what a loyal
Congress refused to do, and if the
Congress of the United States ever
becomes tho mere recording secre?
tary of the Executive, the Uberty of
the Republic is gone. He declared
that there was unequal representa?
tion as long as one mar in die coun?
try was unrepresented. When the
loyal Southern men heard this de?
claration of the Convention at Balti?
more, which nominated Mr. Lincoln,
it was the day of rejoicing through?
out their homes, and they bid the
He called the attention of the con?
vention to the peculiar language of
the resolution adopted by the con?
vention of the 14th of August. It
docs not state that any Southern
State has abolished shivery, but in?
dicates that it has been abolished by
military power, and when they have
power they will claim compensation
for emancipated slaves. He wished
it to bo written in the fundamental
law of tho land that no money is ever
to bo paid for emancipated slaves, or
for tho effort to overthrow tho Go?
Judge Bond, of Baltimore, offered
Resolved, That this convention
urge the loyal men of th e North to
support the Congress of the United
States, in demanding of the Southern
States the wise guarantees of thc con?
stitutional amendments passed by
Congress, and (?Ul upou the patriotic
men of tho loyal States to use every
exertion to secure thc ratification of
thc amendment by the States; and
that, as we believe, the justice we
mete shall be thc measure of our
safety, that, in our opinion, there
can be no permanent peace or secu?
rity for loyal men in the South with?
out a return to negro suffrage.
Mr. Salford, of Alabama, inquired
if that resolution was in tho form of
Mr. John Lu Thomas, of Maryland,
said the first part of the resolution
met the unanimous approbation of
the Maryland delegation. The latter
A delegate moved to strike out thc
word "negro" before the won!
"suffrage," and insert the won;
The chair said the resolution hat
already been referred.
Mr. Thomas hoped it would b<
again brought before the couventioi
for discussion. Ile was as strong ii
the advocacy of Union principles a:

fire-brands as this.
Tho resolution gave rise to an ox
cited debate, but was finally referre?
to tho committee on resolutions.

were then offered and referred to th

Tdie following article is from the

always knows what it says, especially
WMi??ott io political affairs ? the
Federal capital : j* ^ ?
"The jofpmals of the radical dis?
union party that are so clean gone in
reckless partizanship as to ?trike
blindly, without respect to facts,
-cm, as the Cincinnati Commercial
says, to 'watch closely the acts of
Gen. Grant.' Do they remember
that he incurred great censure from
the disnnionists, when he paro led
tue armies ol Lee and Johnston, al?
lowing them to go home, where they
should not be disturbed? Do they
remember his report, so long ago aa
last December, in respect to the con?
dition and feeling of the Southern
people, which was denounced in the
Senate by leading radicals, Mr.
Sumner characterizing it os a 'white?
washing concern?' Do they call to
mind his recommendation for the re?
lease of State prisoners, whom Mr.
Holt's suborned witnesses charged OB
particepe criminis in tho assassina?
tion of Mr. Lincoln? They say that he J
declined accompanying the President
in his tour to Chicago. That false?
hood has liad short life They say
that he was entrapped into the com?
pany of tho National Union delegates
nt the Executive Mansion, on the oc?
casion of their address to the Presi?
dent and his reply. What are the
facts? If Gen. Grant was summoned
by the President on business, he
knew where to . go. It was the Exe?
cutive Chamber and not tho East
Room, which was packed by a crowd
to witness the ceremony and hear the
speeches. We will state reliably
what occurred. A gentleman present,
who knew Gen Grant personally (ho
was not in uniform) volunteered to
get him through the crowd. It gave
way when it was stated that Gen.
Grant was tho party desiring to go
forward. When through the crowd,
he took his stand immediately at the
side of the President, amid great
cheering, which was earnestly joined
in by the Southern delegates, because
they sincerely admire him, not only
as a soldier, but for bis kind acts, be?
fore stated in this article. When thc
ceremony was closed, he cordially in?
terchanged civilities generally, and
shook hands with the leading persons
present, including the Southern dele?
