Powe* >o? Tapa, INDIAN AND , ^^XJJOX,
AB TUB SOUTH.- President Grant aeems
to h?te beau .a good doa! interviewed
lately, and on one bf these occasions ia
rfcpresontod to ha Va expressed' views In
relation to the Indiana which oortainly
indicate good sense and humanity," He
Sbys be has lived with Indiana and knows
them thoroughly; that they ono be civi?
lized and made friends o? tho republic,
"Hie attack on tho Apaches he pro?
noun oas murder, and promises to invcfl*
tig&te.the, matter. The oitizjena .?ot' the
outlying States >?n? Territories, in his
opinion, ought to bo ?bl?'to settlo tho
Indiin question without miling on the
Government". Goa. .'. Gran; say? .th,?
Qpakers and other denominations' bi
Ohriatiuna are labor lng witii'e^Tcot qmong
the Indians. And- ho then adds: *'I
don't like riding over and shooting tbeso
poor savages. I want to conciliate them
and mako thom peaceful citizens, -..The
policy of peace, sir, isjnuoh, preferable
to tho policy of war. Yon can't thrash
people so that they witf love' yon, oven
thoughthey, are Indians. Yon, however,
make .onemipa friendly by kindness."
All whioh ia palpably true, and if Gen.
Grant will apply it to tho Southern
States he will hud ; it .more potent than
Ka Klux bills. Sven the Britishers have
not proved impervious to the policy of
conciliation, aa Goa; Grant has seen in
the negotiation of the late treaty. ' Why,
then, should Southern white men?
HOBAOB GREELEY; ON TH? SOUTHERN
WHITES.-Mr. Greeley's last lotter is
from Memphis, and it discusses- tho con?
ditio? Sf tho white people o? tho South,
n precious lcttcrh?viug been devoted, to
the* blacks. Like every thing ciao that
comes from the pen of Mr. Greeley,
his Vio>s in this cafee, saya ?he Savannah,
Qa.'^Sepui/?caH, ?rebntirely tbe?wtfcal.
?She ch ar actor is t?o tho maa ?B t? argue
all ajustions and^orm'nll opinions' upon
wha^h& fancy muy" ougg'eat ios tiro-philo?
sophy of the case, with hot little regard
to actoal stubborn' focta. . In Ulis letter
he contends that* Iwo-.th?rda qf* tho dor?
mer slaveholders -of the South are ana-,
ions for tho restoration of slavery; though
ho conoodcB that, ^uaU a result is a moral
impossibility.. The poorer whiles, ho
a?ys, AS , epnt^ad^tingu^hi;drtfrom ? the
ar is tocra ?io, classes, have risen in wealth,
industry and dignity nuder the iufluence
of emancipation... He then proceeds to
discuss the political condition and pros-'
peo ts of the South, as. follows, dosing
with BOH?O complimentary remarks upon
Clio cucrgy and courage with .which our
people have proceeded to the work Of
That those .who- struggled and fought
mr secession generally believe they wore
night in so. doing, I oaii'not doubly je(r
ferson Davis' late speech fairly expresses
their average convictions and feelings.
But, while they still .affirm the,right of,
secession, I am satisfied that a majority'
of them believe ita practical assertion
was unwise ?nd inexpedient. They hold
that they should have made their late
tjproggle in the Union and not against it
-under tho flag of our fathora, and not
that of tho stars and bars-in ostensible
defence of the Federal Constitution, not
in resistance to its authority. They pro?
pose to-renew the fight, but not with
gun and sabre. They expect to regain
as Democrats, through elections, the
powor they lost aa rebels through
war. They herein eviuce that wisdom
which profits by the lessons of experi?
ence. Here and there a hot head may
talk of renewing, at some more auspi?
cious season, tho struggle for an inde?
pendent oonfederaoy; but the great ma?
jority have had- enough of war. I foel
s iro that another Sonthern secession is
all bat impossible. ' ' _ .
And, while a bitter spirit is cherished
by many, I fool .sure that the number
who acquiosoe, if they do not absol ltuly
?joice, in the restoration of tho Union
is daily increasing. Thousands hato tho
"carpet-baggers," with their alleged cor
?uptioos and spoliations, who protest
that they do not hate tho Union. They
persist in a clamor against what they
call "nigger equality," (bot which means
negro enfranchisement, 'negro educa?
tion.) whioh precludes their swaying tho
negro vote aa they otherwise might and
would; but they will seek to coerce
enough of it into voting the* Democratic
fcickot to give them a majority of tho
Southern electoral votes for next Presi
- dent. Bot the blacks grow year by year
moro indopondeci in fact as well ns feel?
ing; and it will neither ho easy nor safe
. to repoat'tho terrorism whereby Georgia
and Louisiana woro mudo to voto for
Seymour in. 1868. Should tho South
show an anti-Republican majority in
1872, it'will be a consequence of injudi?
cious appointments and' removals, of
actual or reputed prodigality in legisla?
tion br ia office, or of terrorism or con?
straint exorcised over tho voters, and
not a decision of the people on the ques?
tions which vitally difference tho two
partios. - .

' A private letter gives the following
additional faots concerning the murder
of a Baptist minister in an Arkansas pul?
pit. Tho affair occurred ia Scott Coun?
ty: fie.was murdered in tho churoh, a
few weeks since, by a notorious Radical
scamp.' Thp name of the minister was
Deschampa," and ? Royal Arah Mason, a
mau esteemed nod beloved by nil who
know him. Both Radicals and Demo?
crats are very much excited and incensed
at the outrage. About two JOG rb ago,
Desohamps held a protracted meeting,
at which several joined the churoh. At
the water's edge, on tho day set aside
for baptism, Desohamps oallod ou the
brethren .to Bing, and they seeming back?
ward and tardy, tho invitation to sing
was oxtended to tho congregation, and
tho young man, subsequently Des?
champe' murderer, with one or two of
hib asBooiatee near by, oommenoed sing?
ing the comio or vulgar song, /.'Tlie old
gray horse," etc' They were reported
to the grand jury, and it cost them $25.
Ou the day of the murder, the young
man walked into the church, and, in the
presence of two gontlemen.and. several
ladies, killed Desohamps, drovo the men
and women-out of the house, then wen1
back and shot two more balls throng!:
; his (Deschamps') body and one througt
his head. The young niau made his es
cape and is still at large. Large rewardi
are offered for him by the "Dardanclh
Association," tho Mas?niofraternity ant
probably by the State.. Deschamps wai
among the first in rank with the Baptis
preachers in Arkansas. '

SUSPICIOUS.-Tho Democrat, pnblishei
in Gheravr, gives thc following item
"We learn that a few days ego twi
strange negro men appeared at a stor
nt a place called Hamburg, in Marlbor
County,- between ' Gardner's Bluff am
B?nnettRville, and commenced trading
when they .settled for what thoy ha>
purchased, one of thom produced a larg
roll of greenbacks, supposed to be sc
vera! hundred dollars; the .other i mme
diately gavo him a nudge, when they wen
to the door and held a consultation
they came back do tho counter, bavin
concealed the roll, of " greenbacks an
paid for tho articles bought from a ro
of Bmn.ll bille, produced from the ves
pocket. On inquiring they said the
>were from the upper part of Chente*
field County, near White's store, an
were going, t#> Wilmington. The store
keoper suspected they were part of tb
gang that murdered Mr. Redfearn i
White's store some weeks ago, and ii
quired if they had heard of that genth
man's murder; they said they had no

alington. As only about 0500 has bee
recovered of the ?2,000 or $3,000 suj
posed to have been in the possession <
Mr. Redfearn at the time of his m urde

IMPROVEMENT TO KEROSENE OIL.
Kerosene oil affords the best and cheap?
est light in the market, but the danger
of an explosion or burning, whereby
life and property are ofton lost, prevents
many families from using it. Air. H. R.
W. Jackson, of Morgan County, Ga.,
claims that he has discovered a process
for improving kcrosone, by tho addition
of a cheap compound, which makes tho
kerosene burn a greater length of time,
the light better, and improves the wick
so that there will be no smoke to blacken
tho chimneys. A patent for the im?
provement has been applied for.
