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?
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.

Prof. J. C. Watson, of Ann Arbor,

and in declination three degrees ten
minutes South. It is moving West
and South.
Tun WiNNSBo?o NEWS.-Major W.
W. 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

get along with her, shu lots her know

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?
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.

HAM.-We assume that most intelli

uses and advantages of a knowledg
of phonography. The advantages o
such knowledge are incalculable t
the professional man-especially th

preacher, the lecturer and the lutero
leur. We have devoted seven
months to a careful comparison c

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

?points, the most important of whic
are: 1. In abolishing the two styli

that the work is almost equal
