The Iron-Clad JVesro Law. By the infam'oaa Civil Bights law the Negro is clothed with so many privileges and immunities denied to the white man that he is almost unassailable fairly iron-dlad. .The following extract from the I' Address of the Johnson Club; published in the National Intelligencer,, shows some of the iniquities of this corrupt and atrociousjaw: ; ; : ' ' ' ' MThe Civil Rights Bill is a scion o this more formidable predecessor. It purports to grantcivilrights to the blacks to place them as citizens on a perfect equality with the whites. Its dictum is that there shall be no discrimination be tween the races in regard"" to civil "righta, and yet the very first, step in the code takes from the State courts then mdepen dence as judicial tribunals, and breaks down the authority of the people who create them. , "If the Judges of the State courts decide against any of the grant3 or immunities conferred upon the freedmen by the Civil Rights Bill, the Judge is to be fined or imprisoned for it, no matter bow consci- . i i ...I jit. enuous nis aecision.or wnetuer n vs ioua ded on bis views oT the Constitution, or the laws of Congress, or the Constitution or the laws of the State which be is sworn (o administer. There is no such penalty affixed in case of a judgment against a white man, whose person or property may be involved in the judge's decision. . In case a white citizen of a State sues another he is confined to seek justice in a State Court. The negro is privileged to prosecute in the State Court, the District Court of the United States, or. the Circuit Court f the United States So he may drag a white man through all the tribunals of the country. Isjnotthis discrimination? - "But thereis another ef still more practical importance. The bill requires that commissioners be appointed through out the States to become prosecutors of suits for freedmen litisants. Tbi3 new tribe of pursuivants of litigation are to receive a premium from the Treasury of ten dollars for every suit they can induce the fredmen to permit - to be brought in his name, and five dollars additional is to be paid on the warrant when issued. For similar services a. State justice receives twenty five cents. - "A poor white man nowhere in the world has such assistance in asserting bis richts or redressins bis wrongs. He has to pay the tax and fees when he appeals to the courts for justice, and the lawyers as counsel; but for the freedmen there is a host of commissioners provided, to in stigate and prosecute suits, prompted by fees in advance, which alone would make it'a lucrative pursuit, to pay 'nothing of what might be obtained Irom the plaiatiH or. extorted from the defendant. . 1 "There appears to be some discrimina tion of races, where we find the purse of tho nation opened to ode race and stimu lating huntsmen to hunt the other as a sort of prey. This must be meant as a retaliation on tbe whites (although parol ed and promised peace at their own homes) for the cruelties of Senator ' Mason's Fugitive-slave 'Bill. The latter, however, only reached a few individuals. The hired beasle of the Civil Rights Bill will hunt the white man down at his bome,or drive him from it, and he is commissioned to drag State judges from their courts to trial before United States Courts, and thence to the punishments they adjudge,, for er ror of opinion." Help us, DarlLics, or Vf e Sink." ' We do not believe,: and we ; do not charge, that the masses of the Republican party, at least in this ' vicinity, are in fa vor of Negro Suffrage, or of the atro cious outrages upon the . rights of-white men perpetrated by the radical Congress. But the leaders of that party are in fa vor of these measures;' and we, condemn the mass of the party for. following these radical demagogues, contrary to their own convictions or nsht. A party made tip; a3. the Republican party is, of the remnants and factions of all other parties which exist or have ex isted, must be held together by excite ment; andwhere this is the case, it is not the best men of. the party who get the of- ficesb -but the noisiest brawlers. These brawlers will eventually break down any party,-and they now feel that the tide of public opinion is setting in against them. It is for this reason that they are clam oring for Negro Suffrage to keep the offi ces from slipping from them-. And it is in order to secure the votes of the Ne groes, when ballots shall be put . in their hands, that they, are '.how, legislating al most exclusively for thev Negroes, and granting them privileges which no white man dare - claim. "The" infamous Civil Rights Law was enacted to assist in courting : Negro votes; and nearly all. the legislation of Congress ha3 been directed to this object. " '--. '-' The recent elections,' instead of warn- id tnem tnat public opinioq win not sus- ain their radical schemes, seems, to have had the effect of increasing their zeal to secure the votes , ot the JNegroes. iney are now crying with outstretched bands: "Help U3, darkies, or we sink." ; .:We have bad accounts of the wheat crop throughout the West. This may be only the annual scare which is got up ev ery Spring about wheat,' but we fear that this time there is truth in the reports. ? . KsyThe Civil Rights Law is in part the old Fugitive Slave Law revamped and re vised, making the Negroes the 'catchers, and the white man the chased and hunted.

" Secretary of State; . . . Judge of the Supreme Court; Ilcmler of the Board of Public Worh$. StevensHis Antecedent. The notorious Thaddeus Stevens com menced his political life in 1835 in the Legislature of Pennsylvania, as an anti Mason demagogue. His hobby then was anti-Masonry as it now is the negro. His first public act was the establish ment of. an inquisition to spy out the secrets of Masonry, . Xt is thus allu ded to by the Pittsburgh Post, which says: ' J : "The subject of this inquisition was to extort from men connected with the in stitutian of Masonry an exposition of their principles, including the secrets of the order, which it is alleged, they had sworn to preserve inviolate. To this end many of the most prominent statesmen of the Commonwealth were dragged before the Star Chamber, and "held in . duTance vile for weeks, and compelled to sub mit .to every indignity that malice could invent. Had they been the veriest crim inals they could not have been subjected to greater ignominy. "Among those who were thus outraged may be mentioned Governors Wolf and Shunk, and the Hon. Geo. M. Dallas; nor did even the sacred desk escape the per secution of this fanatical anti-Mason. The Rev. Mr. Sprolis, an eminent divine of the Presbyterian Church, was dragged by an officer of the House before the "modern juggernaut, as he appropriate ly stykd the Committee, and put under the torture, with'a view of compelling- him to divulge, under oath, what he knew about this ancient and respectable insti tution. But he,' following the example of the distinguished statesman we have named, spsrned the miserable tyrant who would thus have him violate his honor. These men were only released from du ress by the united votes of the Democratic members, with a few of the opposition. "We next find this man, Thaddeus Stevens, in 1833, at the head of a wicked conspiracy to overthrow civil government in our peaceful old Commonwealth, by ignoring tbe clearly expressed will of the people at the ballot box, and but for the indomitable courage of the Democratic members of the Legislature, the hellish plot would have succeeded, and "the elec tion treated as though it had never been held." . ;. - - 3?The Hon. John A. Kasson, of Iowa, having been . approached on the subject of running as an independent candidate for. Congress at the next elec tion, repljcs:- .; : , ;:" "If lama candidate, it must be as a thorough-going Republican, one who be gan in 1848, helped build its platform in 1860, on which it gained its first success, and who adheres to the platform of 1864, and who expects to. adhere to the Repub lican platform and candidates of 1868. I am neither for nor against any man as against the Republican party and . its principles.. I am against Andrew John son all the time, if he is against the pro tection of loyal Unionists, both white and black." ,; . Kasson is the person from whom his wife recentlv obtained a divorce on ac count of the violation by him of the most sacred , obligations of his wife his mar ge vows. . He wishes to be considered very faithfnl, however, to hU political vows, and especially to "loyal Unionists, both White and black. We have no doubt that he will pass muster with the' Republicans of his district. Tbe President to Smell Brimstone. The .

"The .President sent Eis veto of the Civil Rights Bill to tbe Senate yester day.

There was a riotous tumult at Bradford, England, on the 3d instant, ' caused by rishmen and Fenians, which lasted three days, in .which the English portion of the population was beaten, insulted and driven into shelter.

Below, please find a statement of the cultivation, raanagement.etc, of the pro ductof. one-half acre of-Northern Sugar Cane, raised by me this year. The land has been a pasture lot; raised two crops of corn previousto the cane crop; is what is usually called beech or elm land; surface rather fiat;. Soil : dark, - somewhat loamy; subsoil, stiff clay. This field was plowed about the middle of May, from seven , to ten inohes deep; harrowed until'perfeptly pulverized; planted, with dry( seed on the 2lst of.May; drilled in-with a corn drill. Owing to the ground being very mellow, and the drill running bo deep, I was fear ful that the seed would not see daylight; consequently, -having -plenty -of seed, 1 put in an abundance of it; but,to my sur prise,although planted during the drouth, it came up without any rain, very thick; and grew very well during the drouth of several weeks, while corn in the adjacent field nearly perished.' So .much in favor of deep plowing. The seeH was of the Chinese variety, obtained from the South em part of the State.' ': : :: - The cultivation was once ith the cul-i tivator, thinning-., out' and hoeing, and plowing out with a double-shovel plow. The ground remained ; clean and mellow all the season. The cane was cut and put in large shocks from the 10th to the 12th of October, after receiving one light frost. After remaining in chock, curingj between three , and four weeks, " I hauled one load, being one-seventh of . the half acre, to the scales. It weighed 2,600 lbs.j making nine tons to the half acre, equal-i ing eighteen tons per acre. . Had the seed been ripe, none of it matured, it would have weighed considerable "more. In consequence of makiBg molasses" for my neighbors, and doing other work, I did not work up the last of my cane until the 29th of November, and therefore did not get quite as much molasses ; as if manu factured earlier. Part of the cane was frozen hard had to wait a,few,days for it to thaw out. r : " ' ' I saved an immense amount of 'well cured fodder hauled in, stripped and topped immediately before manufactur ing. I threw out quite a large amount Of small cane, leaving me at- least one-half the weight in small cane, blades and tops, which I consider equal to, if not better, than any other rough feed. ' I had about two acres in cane, but not all as good as the half acre; I have been feeding three horses and two cows on it for five or six weeks; they have done well. Although my horses worked hard most of -the time, tbey did not require as. much gram as. when fed on hay. I have fodder to feed on for several weeks yet.,. While manu facturing, nine head of hogs did well on the skimmage.and bagasse, with but very little other fced.v. ; ;. . . :i ; As I have given my mode of manufac turing atr.other; times.I will ..omit it here, and proceed to give, LVe Dr. and Cr. of the half acre. ; .- :..r. ;:' ' V '. : .
