Friday Horning, August 30, 1867. Th? Two Race?-Harmony. "Wo ore gratified to learn, trom the Alexandria Gazelle, that the colored population of that city aro waking ?up to the issues of tho day, and are beginning to realize the true charac? ter of some of their wonld-bo leaders from abroad. Many of tho more in? telligent nod prominent among them aro denouncing, in fierce terms, the duplicity and party trickery of those .who seek to uso them as a lover to hoist them into office. They declare they will never uominato one of these people, or voto for ono under any circumstances; but that their votes shall, if cast for a white man, be given to some old and trust-worthy citizen. The Gazelle remarks, that thoso who express themselves in this way occupy a position of influence among the colored people, and are familiar with their pretensions and prc del ic ti ons. This revolution in feeling, as we learn - from the Virgi? nia papers, was caused by the late Iii cl un o nd Convention, the majority of the delegates attending that mon jgtcl assemblage expressing them? selves as being disgusted with the . .conduct of the leaders, and the dis? graceful management of that meet? ing. We have no doubt but that the thinking colored men in Virginia as "v-vell as everywhere else, will feel that ?whatever may bo their power, it would bo impolitic to use it in ? way to ex? asperate the white residents, whom they should rather strive to conci? liate; and would be, if nothing more, to their interest to cultivate the kindly sentiments of the whites to? wards them, seeing that they must livo with and bo dependent on them, At least for some years to come. Above all party considerations, above all delusive theories with regard to the benefits conferred upon them by their recent enfranchisement, wo hope the colored people of the South will con? sider their truo position, and, in? stead of opposing those among whom they were raised, at tho bidding of strangers, for party purposes, they will work with them for tho benefit of their section, not only in politics, but in industrial pursuits. .

Herbert has assumed tho editorial management of our Fairfield cotem porary. Tho following is tho con? cluding paragraph of his salutatory: "In the discussion of tho issues before tho country at this time, tho military bill shall bo tho writer's guide, believing as ho docs, that tho acceptance of tho congressional plan ol' reconstruction is tho only ono which tho peoplo can look to for a solution of the difficulties which sur? round us; and never having been an extremist upon any political question, he will suffer no circumstances to lead him to a support of any measure, which, in his judgment, will not con? duce to tho good of the whole people. VICE VERSA.-Tho time was when a lady wanted a nurso or ;i cook to try them and see how they liked them. Now a "colored lady, under tho new law and order of things, tries tho white lady, and if she can't get along with her, shu lots her know it, and sooks a more profitable and pleasant person to live with. Disorderly Conti act of Freedmen. On lost Wednesday, registration was commenced in St. Thomas Pa? rish, at the Brick Church, under the superintendence of Mr. Lt. P. Smith, white, and Jeremiah Yates and Aaron Logan, colored. Mr. Smith is a Northerner, who has lately settled in this State. When the polls were opened, about 1,000 freedmen were present, most of them being armed with guns and muskets. Mr. Smith, the chairman, addressed them on their duties as citizens, explaining to them their rights, and urging them to keep the pence. Some of the freedmen requested to know the rights of the planters, and if their wages could be deducted while absent from their work at the polls, i Mr. Smith was about to reply, when interrupted by his colleague, who made a violent ha ranguo, stating that the planters could not interfere with their move? ments, and that this was tho time to assert their rights over the whites, who could not bo trusted. He proceeded in this style of lan? guage for some time, until Mr. Smith, seeing that the passions of the crowd were becoming excited, exercised ins authority, and adjourned the Board. Pursuant to tho adjournment, the Board met at Mount Pleasant on Monday, and when the books were opened, about 300 freedmen were ?resent, armed with various weapons, tr. Smith again addressed the crowd, when he was interrupted a second time by Aaron Logan, who was more violent than on the former occasion. On his declining to desist, Mr. Smith closed the pol], and came to the city end reported tho facts to Qen. Clitz, the Commandant of the Post. Logan came to the city on the same boat, to present his statement of the case. On hearing the circumstances, Gen. Clitz promptly ordered the arrest of Logan, who was sent to Castle Pinck ney, on a charge of impeding regis? tration. Mr. Smith returned to Mount Plea? sant yesterday, accompanied by Maj. O'Brien, the Provost-Marshal. The poll was re-opened and the freedmen invited to register, but this they de? clined doing, unless Logan wns re? leased. A number of the negroes were armed, as on tho previous occa? sions, and Maj. O'Brien commanded them to deliver their weapons, and explained to them their violation of law and order, but to no avail. Not being supported by a sufficient force to ensure obedience, and being un? willing to provoke a disturbance, he returned to the city and reported the facts to Gen. Clitz. The freedmen, finding that they were not permitted to enjoy the rights that Logan had declared them entitled to exercise, slowly dispersed, with threats to burn tho village if they were not granted. We under? stand that Gen. Clitz will visit Mount Pleasant this morning, with a sn ili? ci?n t force to "prevent any riotous assemblage, and to compel the freed? men to obey the laws of the land. The entire difficulty was caused by the action of Logan, and we trust that when the freedmen see the fate of their adviser, they will refrain from any further disturbance. [Charleston News. That is no evidence of ignorance, wo ?.re sure-who was President for the last two years has been a problem old political heads have vainly en? deavored to solve-and it is a doubt? ful matter yet.

All worl executed promptly, with taste ant skill, and at reasonable rates. PHOKOOBAPBY-MUNSON VS. GEA HAM.-We assume that most intelli gent persons have some idea of th uses and advantages of a knowledg of phonography. The advantages o such knowledge are incalculable t the professional man-especially th editor, the teacher, the lawyer, th preacher, the lecturer and the lutero leur. We have devoted seven months to a careful comparison c tho two latest books published-Grt ham's (Pitman's) and Munson'i Graham's was published in 1858 an Munson's in 1866-eight years latei This throws the presumption at one in favor of Munson. Upon exam nation, with the aid of some expi rience in leaching other brunches t knowledge, we find Manson snpi rior to Graham in a great number < ?points, the most important of whic are: 1. In abolishing the two styli of Graham, the corresponding ar the reporting, and making the who system one and uniform. In Gr hara, after thc student has spoi months in acquiring tho correspou ing style, he must set in anew upc the reporting style, which is diff?re: in so many particulars and print pies from the one already acquire that the work is almost equal learning an utterly different systei Munson's entire sj'stem is about long, but not so hard to learn, Graham's corresponding part. 2. ! abolishing tho old turn-over plan a plied to F and V, thus getting quit a most perplexing source of conf sion and discouragement to tho st dent. 3. In adopting tho now ai natural scale for tho dot-vowcls. 4. adding tho ter, tcuy and yay hool thus shortening a large class of wort With such advantages, wo belie that Munson is far superior to Gi ham; and we further estimate tl his system eau bo thoroughly learn in, at farthest, three-fourths of t time required to learn Graham to t same degree. Wo aro not iudebt to either of these mon for any favo: or even courtesies, and present o opinions for what they aro wor from our own stand-point; Duffie Chapman havo both books. Gi ham's sells at $2; while Munson's cheaper at 82.25, because, iu conn* tion with tho former, you have buy a lot of collateral books, reade dictionaries, Ac. J. W.
