In other words, it Is less than one pr ceBt. of tho aggregate vote cast. ' ' It is argued that in order to found a hope for the election of Seymour and Ulair, it was incumbent on the Demo cracy to have carried these States by de cisive majorities. V cannot see it in that light. On the other hand, to make the Radicals confident of the election of Grant, it was necessary that they should have hold their own. This they did not do by from Jo to 100,000 votes. The leaders feel that they have lost. They recognize the necessity of extraordinary exertion to save themselves in Novem ber. They know that Grant is not stronger than the lcal candidates for State officers and Congressmen, and tha't he cannot poll tha average vote cast for the candidates of his party on Tuesday Their huzza of victory are faint and hol low. Thev cannot disguise the chagrin and apprehension they feel in the Frosi lenti.il contest. Under this statu of the case, how fatuous and foolish was the proposition to change candilaies on the part of the recognized exponent of the Democracy amonjthcNcw Ydrk press. It is im possib'e to coacoiro that any one should have supposed for a moment, than that ' such a movement would not instantly and utterly demoralize the Democratic organi zation. Its prompt repudiation, and tho enthusiastic spirit displayed by the people, lmwevcr, dispose of it. One timid, counsellor has n tt spread tho contagion of his fear, and notwithstanding the Radical press will u it. wo an- satisfied the. World's article will do no damage. THE NATIO.VA1. BA.MiS AS A I'OMriCAl. I'ttWKK. One of thfl most powerful influences that we lave to contend with in the pres ent contest is the National Bank interest. Tho projectors of this money making fichorue feel that if tho Democrats shonld get control of the government, the law under which they aro literally coining money would be repealed, and brace the desperation with which they fight for snpremacy. The New England Slates, through some species of favoritism, enjoy a monopoly of the benefit arising from the National BanlTsystcm. This will ex plain why those States cnt a million of dollars to Pennsylvania to aid in carrying that'tatc for the Republicans. They doubtless also contributed a large portion of the money usrd (or c-lectioneeringptir-poses in Ohio and Indiana. The great mass of tho people, especially of the South, liavc but little idea what a power in the land these National Ranks are, for the reason that thoy have given tho sub ject but littlo thought. A correspondent of the Chicago 'Times lias shown why the Batiesal Rank interest is so itowerftd in thocontrst. From his article we nuote as follows : "It seems that the Democratic papers of Uje country, while closely and fully discussing other branches of the great financial question, are now almost as still as death abont the monstrous swindle known as the National Bankingsystem. I have recently mide some calculations, a la Atkinson, a- to ihc amount of money that can bo made oat f it by thc-bankcrs. I itave invested an imaginary capital ol $300,000 of greenbacks in a-20 bonds. ) deposit those bonds in tho Treasury Ds pflrtment, organize my bank,and am furnished with an-issue of ?i70,y0l) in other 5-20 bond, anddep. tt them in like manner, and draw an i-wuo of $213,000 of national currency. 1 again with that amount buy other bonds, and deposit tho same in like manner as the first, ami diaw an issue of $21i,700 of national cniTtincy. And so on until 1 havo $50,000 in national currency unt lo operate my bank with, hewis the deposits of custo mors. And, havinj; only invested J?:0U,- O0O of greenbacks, 1 am yet the owner oi S2511.-12:t of Vnited State-. 5-20 bonds, nd draw an animal interest in gold of gl&MiCTi 3S: and in greenbacks, r.i si -lo. it would i.e S2i::,tai .1:1. Ke member. I have only $300,000 of actual capital invested, and that in rreeubacks: and 1 draw an annual luterest on that investment ol nearly i211,O0tl. 1 might still farther continao tho cslrtilation, until 1 hail only $5000 left ; and then I would draw an annual intrt on my S300.000 capital of SiMi, 11U. That i, nearly ose Husimr.P rtn cknt. on the capital invested." Is it wonderful that the nien who are reaping so large a harvest from their in vestment, are fighting desperately to re- tain in power a party that i .pledged to sustain those banks V New liiigland would Use immensely by the repeal of the National Banking law, for her capi talists could invest their money in noth mc that would yield so large a per cent.

You aro bul their slaves to minister to their own gain. Tho oaths, as all intelligent parsons know, aro not binding upon the members of secret leagues neither in law nor in morals. It is more honor able to. assert your freedom by abandon ing the leagues, than to debase and dis honor yourselves- and your friends by remaining in them. in uK.ir.AI.VST WHITE-AS KVII. THAT SHOULD UK UKMi:iIKl. - A white man named Perkins, who had served as a' soldier in tho Federal army, was hung at Noifolk, Ya., on the Olh inst, for having committed a rape upon a white woman. Tho New York JZcpress makes this comment on the affair : "lie was associated in the horrible out rage with a negro named Benjamin Jcf 'ferson. They were both tried and con victed, and sentenced to be hanged to gether. At tho last moment Go.crnor Wells commutes tho punishment of the negro to imprisonment for life, and leaves the white dastard to swing. There was not an iota of difference m thp guilt of the two wretches. Tho evidence was as conclusive against the one as the other. No paliating circumstance has come to light in favor of tho blackest scoundrel ul tho twain. Yet he is saved to possi bly do further damage to society, and his companion, being of the dispiscd Caucas sian race, will bo strangled ; is likely a dead man at the time these lines will meet the readct's eye. We have no con clusion lo reach but that Jefferson was saved so cly and wholly because he is a nejrro." There are very strong grounds for the suspicion which the Exjircss entertains. The Congressional district in which this outrage was committed is said lo con tain a majority of about seven Ihousanu negro voters, and it is nut tho policy of the carpet-bag Governor of Virginia to offend those men who have it in their power to make or unmake members of Congress. So, for the sake of securing office ami plundcr'to the Radical carpet baggers, negroes arc to be encouraged in outraging and murdering white women, crimes which hare been one of the most terrible results of '-'reconstruction. It is a noticablc feature in the administra tion of tho laws in the Southern States that Radical officials exhibit this favorit ism for the black race. We see evidences of it hero in our midst. IIow often does it happen that white men, and white wo men too, are arrested upon, the most frivolous charges and fined, whero if the charges had been mado by a white man or woman, they would probably kave not been entertained. There is no redress for this dragging of worthy citizens be fore tho courts without just cause, and the outrage is therefore quietly submitted to. Thero appears to be a feeling on tho part of Radical officers charged with tho execution and administration of the law, Uiatto retain power they must favor tho negroes, and tho latter foel that this is so, and arc thus encouraged in annoying white people against whom they may entertain ill-feeling. This is doing much to dis rupt the relations which should exist be tween tho white and black races. Tho negro should bo protested in his lights, but ho should not be encouraged to annoy white men and women by having them arrested upon prctcxts-too frivolous to be entertained by a magistrate. A LIVE l.SMJll. The adroit tactics of tho Radical lead era in trying to make this Presidential contest a duplicato of that of lSGi, has obscured from tho public view, to a great extent, one of the most im portant questions tho public debt, and how it is to be managed. Tho issue, with its consequences is a hearth-stone matter. It comes, in tliodrcadlul thape of the tax gatherer, to every man. Thero k a right and a wrong to it, and no other question, howevur pressing, should bo permitted to overslaugh iL If Ihc fund ing bill of Sherman, and other bondliold ing views are permitted to become laws, there Is no hope for relief. The following article from the Chicago Tinui is pertinent : Among the "living questions of the present,'" whirh the people are not very likely to lnso sight of in tho pending Presidi ntial contest, is tho practical ques tion of paying tho pub ic debt in lawful money. It is entirely snphomorical to argue, as some Radical politicians do, that the bonds must bo paid in gold, because such was tho intention of tho parties in making tho contract. It is a familiar rule of law that contracts must bo interpreted in the light of tho intention of tho parlies when the contract was entered into. How is that intention to bo ascertained ? It is anoth er familiar rule of law that the intention mutt In inferred from tlio reason of the ronti act itself. It is only when the rea son of the contract fails to reveal tho in tention of tho parties making it that the equity courts invite collateral. In tho matter of tho contract between the American people and their creditors, the bondholders, tho contract itself ie veals what was the intention of the par ties, better and moro reasonably than any collateral evidence, or any partisan.fargu- mn.nr rjinnnssiiilriO.lt.. ffi thoiStatlofaowaatho other mint- dciatoon political -questions place.

If greenbacks will -do what tho law says thoy shall do, they will pay public as well as private debts. The bonds Sro a public debt ; therefore, if greenbacks will do what the law" says they shall do, they will pay tho bonds. The makers of tho law intend tho mean ing which tho positiyo language of tho law conveys; thcreforo, they intended that greenbacks should pay tho bonds. Thcro is no escanincr from this conclu sion but by denying that tho inakdrs of tho law intended to mean what they saiu; or by denying that tho money which they mado will do what tho law says it shall do. To deny cither is to assert that tho mnk-nrs of tho law wero rosrncs and cheats, contrivintr to deceive tlie 'people : swindlers. derisine: a scheme tojn'ake"tho tax-payers oi mo nation pay twico niuv by the letter and spirit of th'olaw 'they acrecd to pav.

The subjoined article discusses a-mat-ter, and presents an array of authentic ficts in regqrd.lo it, which should arrest theattontion of tho Southern people. . . That cotton was tho king of commerce, arid that the Southern States were tho capital of its realm, was for years a cause of envious discontent to the Northern section. The "slavo power" was chiefly odious, because it was intimately con nected with the culture of tho plant which made the ' South commercially the su perior. It was tho just prido of tho Southern people, that, though in arts and manufactures thoy wero dependent,, yet the great staple mado the North and Eu rope dependent and tributary lo them. The assertion of this superiority rankled in the Northern breast. It may be pro tested that this unworfliy anddog-inthc-mangerish sentiment did not exist, but it is true nevertheless. The discrowning of King Cotton in the South was an object of the war, and it was accomplished. Tho astute Northern leaders who used the. fanatcal pseudo-philanthropy of that section to foment tho sectional hato which led to the war, . have deliberately and willfully sacrificed the pre-eminence of the South as the great cotton-producing region of the world, on tho, altar of jealousy and malevolence. In the ho, e to clutch this prize for themselves, they did not scruple, to run the plowshare of war through its fields. In doing so, they have to a great degree blasted them, and stimulated tho necessities of tho world to look for other fields. This account of the Egyptian production alio ws what a rival that re ckon has become in tho last six years. Tho English government is fostering by every means the culture of cotton in India, and building railroads from the seaports t tho fields. America, instead of furnish ing five-sixths of the amount annually consumed ten years ago, now yields less than onc-foitrth. And, even after this factbecanio apparent, the purblind haters of the South sought still further to em barrass its production by an exorbitant export tax. It was only self-interest that compelled its release from this bur den, at tho hands of a Congress repre sentative of ths paltry and grovelling sentiment The ruin of the cotton interests is one of the darkest features of the systematic persecution with which- the South has been fo relentlessly pursued, and will excite in the minds of the men of after times who shall dispassionately read it, wonder at tho short-sightedness and contempt for tho despicable selfishness which brought it about. But the cotton of the South ern States will spring again. Un der a disorganized labor sj'Stcin it languishes, and in the meanwhile rivals, more or less formidable, have arisen. Let the owners of the cotton soil, however, bide their time in courageous self-rcli ance, and they will rccrown their king and rule again lord of tho ascendant in Amci i can commerce. We commend the sugges tions of this article to their careful read ing, and tell them to plant brcadstulfs for homo consumption, and cotton for cx port ami manufacture in their own mills. The day is coming when cotton will guarantee them an ir.depcnJencc surer and moro munificent than they ever en joyed in tho most pmperous former times. The cable announcement of a heavy yield of cotton in Egypt is of great im portance to tho people of the Southern States and to ourcountry generally. Cotton has long been tho most impor tant item of commerce among nations. This country held an uninterrupted monopoly of the article up to thp com mencement of the war. A large portion af England's commercial greatness grew out of and depends upon it. To give employment to her 3000 mills, and 33, 000,000 spindles, and I.000.0U0 opera tives, sho has looked to our Sea Island and (!ulf State plantations, in a single year she actually paid out S112.000.000 for a supply. These fats sufficiently indicato the importance of our jKvsscssing the 010001.013' of supply, and doing all i;i our power to regain the ground w lost by tho war. That lesujt is certainly not lo be reached by misleading our cotton planters as to their real situation. To tell llicni that thero is. nothing to fear from Egypt is a fallacy. There is much to fear ; but it is certain that, under a stable political government, perseverance and well-directed labor will eventually place the South first again on the list of suppliers, and make cultivation of the staple in Egypt toounprolitablotohe con tinued. There is a point beyond which it becomes more profitable for .thai country toser.d English breadstuffsllian rntton. It is to that point our plant ers must force this rival. Were it. not for the fact that sho cannot devote be yond a given acreage lo cotton without being compelled o import the cereals for home consumption, her rivalry would be eminently threatening. Tho commercial returns of the world's- markets tell us how prosperously her cotton interest lias thriven muco 1801. There is no wisdom in affecting contempt for tho staple sho produces: nothing to be gained bj- assur ing our planters that our own staplo is so greatly superior that 110 other growth can stand hasido it in tho markets. Let us not disguise the fart that- the Egyptian staple is a good 0110 : that it commands a good price; that it is ail bought ; and that it has been thought worth while to introduce Egyptian seed 0:1 our own plantations for trial. It has been demon slrated that our Sea Island variety,- the MtllO iSlIC. ti;roui uavflr,tAf.; T.,1i:i:-,tKi.lB Tuvnn OhPUanstaplMa high -V found in tho Tact that tho seeds commomy - selected for experimental cultivation in have existed in tho South had tho Hadi now Tirid favorablo localities are tho . cals felt themselves strong enough to American and Egyptian, . and .the jiavo car-iej these States without the aid value. -or the- latter has, becd ; At. : of,hunc.0U c !

These-figures aro offieal, and may be trusted. In 1804 England paid l-.gypt over $01,000,000 for cotton. Tho year, befor tho war sho paid her less than S7, 000,000. Thcro is .a lesson in theso figures. How far tho present crop of that coun try will interfere with our sales in Brit-" ish markets will depend 011 circumstan ces ; but- ono thing iS certain that .wo shall' 'bo-importantly affected by it in several waysi It ill-becomes us to affect ari indifference for competition that wo cannot afford, arid it is in every respect more sensible for' tho South to set abdiit recovering hqr lost cotton status in all earnestness, and with a sincerity that shows her appreciation of the true char acter of the situation, than for her to rely upon past .power for present protection. Affairs havo chanced, and she has expe rienced crushing -discouragements, iter labor system has been' totally revolution ized ; even worse, it has been destroyed, and sho has been forced to deviso a now one. In the midst of her prostration, Congress, in defiance of all the principles of political 'iconomy, and with titter dis regard for tno national good, levied a tax unon the staple that would have been a death-blow to its cultivation had it been much longer retained. These drawbacks must be overcome. It can scarcely bo believed tltat this section is un worthily yielding to them, and yet that would seem to be tho tact lrom tno ic- porls constantly received here that the cotton area is more and more being given over to wheat and corn. Tho South can not reasonably expect to recover hersolf at once. Restoration must nccossanly bo gradual ; and during its progress peri odical and temporary relapses must bo lnnkeil for. The ultimate result cannot bo doubted. .Wo aro bound lo be master of -the cotton market if we use our ad- vantaso judiciously.- To recover cround at a sincle stroke we must throw a full crop into themarket ; nothing less will suffice. The planters of tho South must bend all their energies to olfect this. If they oxert themselves they will win, if not thoy will lose. The prize is cur tainly worth the effort. The losses on a short crop one year will bo compeared by the gains on a full crop tho next one. Above all, it should bo remembered that the reign of Radicalism will not last for ever, and that there is a period coming when we are to produce an annual crop of 5,000,000 bales, to manufacture it for our selves, and thon convey the fabrics to the great markets of the world by American moans of transportation. England may set that down as a fixed fact. Let the fcouth keep her eyes upon it, and stead fastly labor on in tho fulfillment of her sure and prosperous destiny. The Legisiatu.ro of Nebraska passed a law at its last session, disfranchising sol diers and officers of tho Confederate army. Judge Lake, of that State, has recently delivered an opinion that Regis ters have no right to refuse registration to such parties, the law excluding them from stiffiagc being unwarranted by the Constitution. This will show that tho disfranchised people of this State occupy an anomalous position. They arc re quired lo perform ever duty of a citi zen, as paying taxes, serving on juries, and assisting in keeping np the public highways, but aro denied the right of voting or holding office. U:ic of these proscribed citizens may remove fo a "Free Slate," and after the prescribed residence lo acqniro citizenship, will bo entitled to volo and hold office This shops tho outrageous proscription which has been inaugurated in this Stale for tho purpose of keeping power in the hands of tho Radicals.

The Radicals profess extraordinary friendship for the negro, and insist that he shill be made a voter. Out this game appears to bo confined only to those Statos whero they arc in the minority and need tho voles of tho negroes to enable them to gain or hold control of the States. In the Northern States, whero tho Radicals and Republicans have the majority, they have been very slow to confer political rights upon tho negro The Republican Stato. Convention of rennsylyaiua refused to pass a resolution indorsing negro suf frage, and recommending tho people of that ancient Commonwealth to adopt it. Such a resolution was offered, but it was sent to a committee and theio smothered. Tho New York Tribune denounced the pioceeding at the time, as a cowardly dodge and shuille.
