At 'tfe risk of some repetition, We shall give those statistics, which these self-styled legislatois have so inexcusably ignored or perverted. 'he 'follovinig table, compiled careful ly from the `United Stated census; exhib its the number of white and ntegro males in 1860, who were 21 years of age and upwards, in the ten proscribed States: .,1a.lcd ocer tcraty-one. , States. ..

The blacks have a ihajority of 9,912 in one, and 18,783 in the other. In these black suf frage is negro supremacy, treat the whites us you will. In Louisiana the two populations are so nearly equal that a trifling change of, say 900, (or one in every hundred,) would make the blacks practically masters of the State. A very slight disfranchise ment of the whites would work the same result. W e do not see how, therefore, Ra4di " 1 Senators can deny that they havl eliberately attempted to turn over these three fertile and once pros perous States and their white popula tion,'including such Northern men as may chance to go there for any purpose of commerce or settlement, to the deno mIination of what is mainly a barbarous race. There can be fib dispute as to these three States. Now let us look at the results of the registration of 1807 by the Shetridaus, Griffins, Popes, Swaynes and Schoflelde, carrying out zealously the' laws of Con gress, and repelling from the lists every white man that they possibly could disfranchising men who had been jus tices of the peace thirty years back, militia officers, c3nustables, overseers of the poor, road overseers, ferrymen, and, in some cases, auctioneers. We have heretofore shown the principles and punr pose of this registration and diifran chisement. Let us see what was actu ally accomplished. In making this table ne have collated statements from vari ous quarters but have in every State but one (Mississippi) followed the figures of The New York Tribune, and in that State the difference between our figures and those of the Tribune is not very material: &lgistratioa for 1867: States.

Then egro males, per eeasus, over 21, were 711,572, the negro males registered were 681,106. Makiug a faldling off of 40,406. This is bht-dly third of what '6 aMight exsieet, eonsidnring the tinmber of deaths of ~tigtoes' ft'm disaeeas, neg leet, bad abits, h and sthea latge eifig. tiea-~'ttt6 Net1th and N0ltthest. -T3t lung il these ift'iGtle account, we do hot b~lie9f the" heo r jttIo w6uld have reache0d Ylo bod itflol uhle sale and Daotorflon'] Ttds8 eouitotbd all over the South, by which the negroes were registered under different names, at as many precincts, and! also inany thousands ýwho had not attained their majority, and did °not know what their age really was. A census ordered late ly by (eon. Sohofield showed- that in one ward of the city of ichtinonda full fourth of the registereed. black voters could not be found; and yet these- spa rious voters hmad elected Judge Under wood, Huanuictt; ame three others to the convention. The white nmaes, aper cenasus, over 21 were 068,606W4.helwhit6 males registeredt were,. 630,3999. Deilciency, 338,307. Ag'ain examing the registration ta bles, we And the following States put under the dominioenof the negro rae. : AlabamnrsamegrO majOrity, 11j890; -Flori da, negro-.majdrity, 4,286; Loiusiaua, negtio majority, 39,232; Misslssippi, ne gro majority, 14,i657;. and 8outh '-tar, linea. wegro majoiity, " 33,476h " Five Stattes hawded over -to the balcks by fegistration! : . Ili Georgia the white-and black vote so nearly balauce -each. other, that a change of one white man i a a hundred (and there, is ansually fhr more than that proportion of mean, malignant, or unre liable menw in' e'ery communityi) would hand the S&ate over to the black race. Say there 'were ,one or two thousand whites in the party.. The immense pro portioit of negroes composing this party wouid-inake it; practically a black man's party, and antagonize it at once in Intea tine" strife with the white blood, the property, and intelligence of -the SItate. In Virginia and Texas very Amall changes are necessary to assure- black domination. In the first State this was, however, deemed anu imperfect reliance; and here, as in North Carolina, Georgia, and other States, the military overseers resorted to getryimandering; prolonged elections for three days, midnight bal loting, and other trickery, to make as surnced doubly sure. In the teeth of all this we are told that there was no. purpose to secure po litical power, and none whatever to put the whites under the dominion of the black race. Again, it will be seen abhove that there were 338,307 white males over 21 years, by the census of 1860, who atie not now registered. We are gravely told that "only 50,000"-of these were disfranebis ed, and that they remainder, to-wit : 288,307 whites, stayed away and refused to register, from indifference! More than a fourth of the whole white popu lation, indifferent to the question of ne gro supremfacy! Indifferent tO the exer cise of the elective franchise, or to use the only means by which they could ex ercis6 it. And yet it is known that every paper in the South (we defy any one to name an exception, from the Potomac to the l~io Grande, including even the smallest and rmost obscure village newspapers) advised the people to register. Every public man of every party, who gave advice at all, gave the same advice. And yet we are to explain away this brutal disfranchisement of 338,307 by pretending that 288,307 persons were totally indifferent, or averse to be reg istered. Does the late election in Alabama show that the white population Were indifferent to the question of being ruled by negroes and a negro made constitu tion, with negro political equality, ne groes in the jury box, negroes beside their wives and daughters at hotels and public conveyances, negro children made the associates of their own children in the public shools' Look at the figures and see how wide and sharply is the line drawn between the two races at the late election. Mobile, 4,916 'blacks and Si) whites. Mason, Lee, Elmore, Tallapoo sa, Chambers, inllock, and Consa-ne groes, 13,082; whites, 77! This is the vote cast. 7We read in somen large counties of a white vote of three or four, all candi dates for oflicq. Does any man suppose that the Amer ican people are not sufficiently mntelli gent to understand all thist Here you have a white race in a State which is placed by Congress in a minority of 15,890, staying away almost en cmasse from the polls; thus, seeking to defeat 'this negro government--since to secure its adoption there must be a clear umajor ity voting of all the registered voters. If this constitution be adopted, what will it be but a negro government, the sole creation of the negroes, and imn posed upon the whites against their al most unanimous protest, and enforced by the army of the United States, as if it was intended by Radicals to blacken the Iaurels~it has heretofore won in hon orable combat? No! the disft-anchiement of a full third of the Southern whites, the shallow counsels by which guilt often overreach es itself in the end, was considered nec essary in order to save the Radical par ty; and it was rathlessly executed. 'low much this disfranchisement is due to the law itself honestly construed-a very cruel proscription-how mneh to strain ed and violent construction by the zeal ous tools of this mean tyranny, does not matter, since the responsibility for the whole belongs to the Radical or Con gressional patty. And yet this proscription is only a prelude to what in to follow if theascheme ean be made t" work.

From the example of tltese three States where .adihcalismu haasleld full swa.y, we amight fairly .conclude tJhat ia proscription notI less. broad and sweeping is to be inauga rated; in the rest. And yet, even thus reasoning, we should :still be below the mark. In Alabamta, the new constitn-1 tion, by various clauses; proseribes souie 30,000 or 40,000 white citizens. And then. it adds a test oath which goes to the root of the matter, and -makes the State for all time a Congo or Jamaica. Every :white before voting is to swear ,that' he will never vote or use his infit once against negro suffrage. and full po litical equality., iHe is to be tied up for all time, and even though the system was a monstrous wrong and folly, the oath is to: be taken and the voter. bound: thereby. It cannot. be supposed &by the wildest imagination t!mat any number. of men could: be found in Alabama .who could conseientiously take such in oath, and titus nearly thesentice.white popula-' tion have anm insuperable bar interposed betweentthem and the ballot-box. Such is the mode taken by the African race in Alabama to perpetuate its power. This is the constitution for whose adop tion wicked men in, Congress are now hoping and praying, if indeed,such' men can pray. This proscription is theirs. They have pointed the way. to these black pupils, and the latter, followigr tho.precedent of Bt. Domingo, where a white matr is not allowed to own real estate, have greatly improved on their RadiLcatl masters. • .We have left ourselves no space to space to dwell on the enormity of this foul, this inexpressibly mean and das tardly wrong. Milton's description of fiendish malice hardly prepares us for such a base revenge upon a prostrate population of our own race. We do not believe the Atmerican people will endure it, or tolerate the men who plotted it, aind who now pursue it with such a guil ty steadfastness. History makes no mention of a white people who tamely submitted to negro rule. It is the first experiment of the kind, and the men who have made it must be punished sooner or later. To doubt this is to doubt the just judgument of the Almighty. [National Intelligencer. hVlhen a good wife has prepared an excellent dinner for her husband, and he declared he liked it, she said: "Well, kiss me then." "Oh, never mind that, my dear." was his reply; "the necessities of life we ntist have, but the luxuries we can dispentse with." A suit pending in the Memphis courts regarding the forcing of citizens in 1862 to sell cotton to army speculators at stipulated prices or have tine same contiscated, has brought to light irm portant facts. It was proven on trial that Gen. Grant and other ofltciali were privy to anmd concerned in cotton spec ulations during the advance of the army through Mississippi and Teues see in 186i. In this case the defendant, a Northern man, says himself, and proved by several witnesses, tlhat where citizens wouhl niot accept the prices offered for cotton it was confiscated by quartermasters, and Grant received it percentage on all cotton bpught. If a seaman should turn back every time he encountered a head wind, he would never make a voyage. So le who permits himself to be baffied by adverse circumstances will never make head way in the voyage of life. Grant's duty as a soldier requires that he shall act in obedience to the orders of the Presiden t, who, as Counoumandcr-in Chief, is his military superior, aud yet Grant is active in his preparations tr the support of Congress, as against the President in case of a conflict. After the exhibition of depravity made in the recent correspondence with reference to Stanton people can scarcely be surprised at anything Grant may be guilty of. M. du Chaillu, the traveller, in a rccen lecture, stated that while sojourning in the slhogs country, Africa, he Ihad several offers of marriage, antd one kind chief,; to avoid jealousy, waunted him to marry all the marriageable women of the tribe, numbering about 8&0. A Greek maid bting asked what fottunme she would bring her husband, replied "I will bring him whant gold cannot purchase--a heart nmlpotteld, and virtue without a stain, which is all that descended to mae from my parents." The old should be indulgent; they see no faults in others that they have not committed themselves. It is estimat that twelve million newspapers are printed daily.

The above is a very short list of men who, in the single depnrtnment of medi' cine have suffered persecution. for the sake of truth.. New ideaq aro usually considered a crime, and the man who dares think better than others must lay his account with the loss of reputation, if not of litf. It is niot at all peculiat to medicine to treat its brightest orna ments and greatest benefactors in this manner. All other departoments of so. ciety have an equal measure of this per secuting spirit. The history of Galilco, who for lack of courage had to aLjinre his astronomical discoveries, is framiliar to all. BLut most of all this ma:lignant spirit manifested itself in the walks of religion and morals. Martyrdom and relotrm are sc:ircely distinguishable terms.
