Who arc the Bourbons?
As used in the North, this word "Bourbon" designates n class of white men composed chiefly of the leading citizens of the Southern States. The Bourbons are the principle business men, lawyers, physicians, teachers, clergymen, men vhantsand farmers of the South. They are everywhere the leaders of society in the best'senseof the word. Thoy sustain the churches, and give Rich efficiency to the moral activities and discip.ine of the loyal communities as they, have thus far attained. Taken broadly or generally, the class includes the best people' of the South, or most of them. They are Bourbons because in politics they are Democrats and act in opposition to the principles, polity or methods of the Republican party, which has administered the national Government bince the time of our civil war. In the Southern States ihe term Bourbon has no distinct significance. It is applied indiscriminately, by all classes of politicians, to anybody who differs with them. It is there a convenient though empty epithet or name of reproach. Every politician insists that his party is the party of progress, of improvement, the representative and embodiment of the only ideas by which society can exist or civilization be maintained ; and he is, of course, entitled to stigmatize his opponents as Bourbcn. The word is a sham or burlesque weapon in the South, and is used there by everybody in political wrangling for "all it is worth." As to the Southern! men who compos" the class to which this name is unusually applied in the North, 1 am compelled to say that, aside from political matter.-, they are much like other people, or like the best people in our Northern communities. They do not love what is wrong for its own sake, prefer falsehood, baseness, cruelty or injustice to the virtues and good qualities which are elsewhere revered by good men, They are amiable, truthful, conscientious, kind, public spirited and religious, resembling very closely the foremost men in our New England Towns in all the important elements of personal character; di fieri ng only, in general, in being more communicative and having less reserve than is usual among New Englanders. As to their political action, it seems to me to have been for some years largely inevitable; the necessary product and result of the peculiar conditions of life and societyin the South since the civil war. Ttdoes not appear to have been owing to sheer depravity on their part, nor to any choice or agency of theirs, that there was for some years a disturbed and unsettled state of things in the Southern States. Collisions between different classes followed unavoidably upon the elevation of the emancipated slaves into political superiority over the disfranchised white citizens of the country. There has never been any such of organization among the people of the South since the war, as many persons believe to have existed there. That part of our country is distinguished by much greater feebleness of community and a less organic life than belongs to Northern society ; and the Bourbons are not responsible for anything that has been done south of Mason and Dixon's line. I shall have more to say on southern politics. Here 1 wish only to place the so-called Bourbon type as plainly as possible before my readers. The men thus designated are, as a class, eminently social, hospitable, honest and upright men. They have, in a large measure, built up and maintained such moral, social, industrial and religions organization and activity as the South now possesses; and much of what is best and most encouraging in the present state of things in the principal Southern States is due to them and to their efforts for their practical recognition in a time of extreme difficulty and uncertainty, when their resources were so slender, and when they had no precedents to guide them except such as were furnished by the experience of mankind in the long contest between civilization and barbarism in the past. . I think they have made mistakes and have done "wrong things since the war. I am not certain that we or anybody else would have done better than they. February Atlantic.
