Mexico In the South. ' An Arkansas correspondent of the X. Y. World after detailing the horrid murders and outrages committed by the Negroes and "loyal" .Militia, says : "Mexico in her gloomiest days sufT ottd no greater rule of anarchy or reign of terror than prevails iu a large section of country here." "Whole communities ara broken up, ami every outrage committed on de fenseless women. In one case, six bru tal negroes tied the husband and grati fied their fiendish passions by commit ting an outrage too shocking to mention, on the person of his wife in; his own presence." . These arc the fiends the Radicals in power have enfranchised to govern the white people of the Southern States. These are the demons let loose by the Radical party to , murder white people, burn down their property and outrage the persons of white women. The Rad icals have enfranchised . these despera does to make laws ! Such is Radicalism. Men of the North ! What thiuk you of the .expression "Let us Jiave peace V" It is exactly like all other Radictd ex pressions, deceptive, ina-de to delude the people. They Howl, They Swear. A friend writing us under date pf Dec. 28, says of our recent encounter with the Athens Ring : "I congratulate you. I owe jou one. Should we ever meet I will pay the bill. You fetched the Ring ! It is the first time thev ever had a rebuff. THEIR HOWLS OF RAGE ARE FEARFUL (let 'em howl Ed. Spirit.) I hear that they arc swearing eternal vengeance, (let 'em swear Ed. Spirit.) The pub lic will follow the eye opener you have given them. I suppose you found Sher iff n ilson a gentleman. Our intercourse with Sheriff Wilso s was of the most kindly nature ; we found him to be a gentleman in every respect ; and wc are sorry that circumstances compelled us to include that gentleman in our suit against two fellows, residents of Athens. . "Let Ta flare Peace." A letter to the X. T. Herald, from North Carolina, December 18th gives the details of five horrible murders by Ne groes. Is this the . peace the people were promised during the campaign ? It is impossible, at this time, to read any paper, without finding accounts of murders by the Negroes.. Why these murders ? Because Radicalism has in stilled into the minds of the black de mons that it is right for them to jmurder the men who once held them as slaves Eradicate Radicalism and this indis criminate rapine and murder policy, in anguratcd bv the Radical party, will cease. " . The Supreme Court flaying the oid rciiowa uu. The latest proposition for the recon struction of the Supreme Court is one that can scarcely fail to accomplish that project of the radicals, and, as it appeals to the natural love of rest leisure and ease of some men old enough to prefer the cosey fireside to any place.- Some of these men are only kept from resign ing by the salary they receive as judges, and the plan of continuing their salaries will immediately bring about their re tirement' Then there will be room for several judges who look at the law from the standpoint of the. republican party, rThe Morgan County Herald re plies to our article convicting him of falsehood by saying ; "What we- said of Monroe county came througa the agent of the cpnn field Companv, and if wc misstated the facts, the agent is responsible for it.' That's backing down considerably.- Is the agent responsible' for the Editor's assertion that the Editor of the "Spirit" was a pick-pocket ? The Auditor imforms us that the agent did not look over the Journal, neither did he ask to sec it ; therefore it is not "quite certain the agent saw it." "Else how could he know it" The agent called at our office and we inform ed him that there was such an order the Journal. on That's the "how." The Editor would better have responsible authority, - when he again feels in the humor to berate and slauder ' Monroe County and her officials. This time he has completely failed to make his case. Thc County Clerk of Athens in formed our Attornics that upen the re ccipt of 91 00 he would forward copies of the. indictments against us. The money was promptly mailed. In just four weeks he returned the money, say ing he could not furnish, them until we appeared. . By whose order did you chew ' your own words, Mr. Clerk? Do you ac knowledge the power of the Ring ? Are you the Clerk or does some body run you and you office ? Please answer by return mail. 9"A leading banker iu Cincinnati says tliat no such stringency in money in that city has been known since the hard times that followed the break-down in 1857.

The following dispatch proves that these promises were made to deceive voters, and the contra ry effect is the result : THE MONEY PANIC. 2Tew Yoke, December 28. This has been a fearfully stringent day in Wall street, the highest rates ever knoirn hav ing oecn paid jor loans. In numerous instances, a half per cent, commission, in addition to the regular rate, was given for money until to-morrow, and after bank hours per cent, was paid. No relief is expected until after the quarter ly bank statement is made. It is almost impossible to get discounts, and failures are looked for at any time. The feel ing among the bankers and merchants is very unsettled, and commercial confi dence is greatly deranged. There are rumors of the failure of numerous dry goods firms to-day. Half a dozen retail houses on Broadway are said to be in trouble. Storms, Thurber & Co., are re ported to have stopped, as well as anoth er new house with large Western con nections. The Athens Lunatic Asylum. This institution belongs to the people of the State; their monejis made use of to erect it As a part of the people, we, of Monroe County, request our Senator and Representative in the Ohio Legisla ture to exert themselves to have the many charges of fraud, connected with the institution, thoroughly sifted; and let the guilty, whether Trustees or not, be held up to the gaze of the World. We can furnish some important writ ten communications on the subject, and the names of responsible gentlemen as witnesses the moment the .Legislative Committee notify us. Let the Committee be appointed and empowered to send for persons and pa pers. Reconstruction. Ed. Spirit : What is Reconstruction ? Reconstruction is this : If a State be re constructed and cleared of Military Sa traps Negro Bureau's, &c, and there are elections held under the civil law of said State, and it is ascertained that the State is Democratic, every "Loil" whelp will howl, "the State is not yet reconstruct ed !" And these pests of a free Gov ernment are again sent into the State to hold the State subject to military tyrants. But if a reconstructed State should rote the Had. ticket it is then reconstructed and this is all reconstruction means, "When stern oppiksion's iron grip Or mad ambition's gory hand Sending like blood-hounds from a slip.

The statements in these despatches, that the present Congress intend to con tinue the civil tenure bill iu force by a sys tem of tactics explained on Tuesday, had the effect to-day of making General Grant declare, with great emphasis, to two members of Congress, in favor of the Forty-first Congress meeting in March next. That this statement was made cannot be doubted, and the General also declared that if Conklings bill to repeal the act for a continuous session passes. his first official act will be to convene the new congress in extraordinary session by proclamation forthwith, and he would so have it now understood, in order that the new members in ay come to the- capi. tnl in anticipation of tlie day to be named .m the "proclamation, . which will be as early as possible. . This resolve is the first that Grant has yet made public al all in reference to his approaching administra tion. What his purpose is is only to be explained by recent occurrences, and principal among them is the exposure of the intention to burden lus administra tion with all the clogs fastened on Mr. Johnson. It is evident that he intends to have something to say, and his energetic i, ,!.;,. ,., ,i .,'.,, declaration to-day fills the Radicals with apprehension.' J Washington despatch to the X. Y. World.

Whereas, The Presideiit of the Uni ted States has heretofore set forth sever al proclamations offering amnesty "and pardon to persons who had Ijcoii or were concerned in the late rebellion against the lawful authority of the Government of the United States, which proclama tions were severally issued on the 8th dav of December, 1802, on the 2ch day of March, 1864, on the 2'Jthday of May, 1805, on the 7th day of September, 1807, and on the 4th day of July in the pres ent year ; and Whereas, The authority oi me fed eral Government having been establish ed in all the States and Territories with in the jurisdiction of the United States, it-, is brlieved that such prudential reser vations and exceptions as at the dates of said several proclamations were deemed necessary and proper, may be wisely and justly relinquished, and, that a universal amnesty and pardon for participation in said rebellion, extended to all who have borne any part therein, will tend to secure permanent peace, or der and prosperity throughout the land, and to renew and fully restore confidence and fraternal feeling among the whole people, and their respect for and attach ment to the national Goverument.design- e 3 by its patriotic founders for the general good. Now, therefore, I, Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, by vir tue of tho power and authority in me vested bv the Constitution and in the name of tho sovereign people of the United States, do hereby proclaim and declare, unconditionally and without reservation, to all and to every person" who directly or indirectly participated in the late insurrection or rebellion a full nnrdon and amnestv for the offence of treason airainst the United States or of adherinn- to their enemies during the late civil war, with the restoration of all rirhts, privileges and immunities under the Constitution and laws which have been made in pusuance thereof. Signed. Ax drew Johnson. Bv the President: F. W Seward, Acting Secretary of State. From N. Y. Herald Dec. 24.. Prussia and the Eastern Quesilon A General Conference. From London, Paris and Berlin our cable despatches of last night assure us of a European Conference on the Eas tern question, and that the initial move ments come from Prussia and Russia. We detect in this the presence and the brains of Count Bismarck. The Eastern question ready has be- come serious, lireccc is preparing ior war. The sympathy of Russia with Greece and with tlie Christians of Turkey is already so pronounced that there can be no doubt as to the tendency oi ltus sia sentiment. It docs not mean noth ing that Russia has ordered her flag to be used for Grecian purposes. It grants to Greeks the favor that the Western Powers have denied. A European war is, therefore rendered the more a possi bility. No Power in Europe has more to gain by peace and less to gain by war than Prussia. War creates dangers and involves heavy expenses. Peace has for Prussia, in particular, easy and cer tain conquests. Count Bismarck knows the fact, and, as it appears, is not slow to make use of the opportunity to ad vance the cause with which his name must bo lastingly associated- Austria and Italy are tied up by J.hcir debts and their dangers, and hence they readily said with Prussia. This Conference, in fact, means to us on this side two things. It means, first of all, that, unless the great Powers inter pose to prevent it, the difficulty between Turkey and Greece contains within it the germs of a European war. It means secondly, that the honor of settling Eu ropean difficulties shall no longer belong exclusively to Paris and to the Emperor Napoleonr In other words, it proves that just as Bismarck played on Napol eon on the nationalities question and made that question as much his own as Napoleon's so docs he now intend to play off France on what.mc may call the Paris question, and make Berlin, so far as he can, the Paris of the future. What will Napoleon do? To him this proposal must be a surprise. In his estimation he and Paris, not Clarendon and Loudon, not Bismarck and Berlin, ought to have settled this fresh Eastern difficulty. What will Napoleon do ? He does not want war ; be does not, he can not object to a congress. 11 a congress is good in itself it ought to be as good in Berlin as in Paris. It is, after all a new phase of the question. It begets new difficulties, while it does not mitigate the severe character of the old. How the affair will end it is hard to say. Mean while it is not easy to resist the couvic tion that Bismarck has stolen a march on Napoleon, and that Prussia and Russia have taken the role oi r rancc. From tho National Intelligencer, Doc 21. The Republican Tariff Jobs. The Sew York lvening Post and the Chicago Tribune, journals which con tributed not a little to the movement bv which the Republicans secured the pres ent House of Representatives, and, per haps, even more to its endorsation and perpetuation for another two years Ieasel of power, are now complaining bitterly of the action of those they have thus helped to fasten on the country. They find in the tarifl'jobs now before Congress and only too likely to bo passed, all the features of rapacity, injustice, and fraud upon the people. Concurring with them heartily in the strictures they pass upon these schemes, we would like to ask them whether they expected anything etso when they ncipeu to miiict on us the present dynasty. Were they really de ceived? Did they suppose that the plunder of the South, impoverished and worn out, would satisfy the greedy par tisans whose banners they were follow ing ? If they did,as Mr. Benton would say, they deserve to be "cut for the sim pica." We have warned these journals repeat edly that this scheme of first keeping the South out of the Union, and then pro curing a false personation of her in Con gress by carpet baggers, had but one aim and end, to wit the skinning of the rich and prosperous industries of the North by this grand allied army. Here lay, indeed, a tempting field for plunder, and wc do not wonder that their mouths watered as they surveyed it, spread out like Italy to the gaze of Hannibal or Na poleon, as each crossed the Alps. And this, to borrow a Congressional term now falling into disuse, is "all there is iii it;" the cry of "loyalty," disfranchise ments, Gettysburg, ka. over again. A fine show, doubtless, but for which the Northern laborer and taxpayer will have to pay four more year in everything nearly that he wears, eats,, drinks, or us es in anj' way. This is the millcnium the "peace" we were promised as the reward for accepting the Chicago nom inee, and if our Radical contemporaries have not been let into th'rs secret of the I ling, then, indeed, we must confess our surprise. Ordinarily, a man who plants thistles does not expect to gather grapes. ' . The evening l'ost confounds, we think tho "copper bill" now before the Senate and which was sought to-be but through with a rush, with the "Moorhead tariff bill" now before the' House. Both arc villanies in theiy way, but the first is a mere preliminary dose to the second. Whether one or both-shall pass depends upon a "loyal Congress," and the "loyal niillious," so called, will not be allowed much say about" the matter. JI A It It 1EI).
