It was .Tefft'rnn who fhid " Krror cannot
long make headway where reanoq ia left
free to cnmlntt it."
Our victory upon the lale btiltle (lti.l, a
conliuent in extent, which exhibits not a
nmiinil of the killed not a col ot tlie
wounded, means the b'-tler cnmpnd.eii'.ioQ
of j'lxtiru mid the nglils aud tlul lei of
the' nation and stiite ami raonti. It
nii-aua a growing aKceudnncy and Tiaihly
IncreiiMug power of the lUvnie gift of
reiuion, which, like all ether of Ihe Crea
tor's principlea develop hy progression and
progicsaes by development.
Light is no us. to the blind nor pic to
a, milestone, nor correct political truth to
the party blind and parl-y' bound. Hut
tile iK-iiiocrHlic party is moving forward
in tho grand scheme of progress Their
attitude and platform, except for' revenue
only, contains none of the rallying, points
of a few years ago. They are aiuoug Jht
settled points in l.islory. They are known
only as objects in the past over which the
Democracy blundered and fell,- badly
weakcued in Hair efforts to ovwt the in
evitable. They are like the ram that at
tacked the locomotive, showing good
pluck but ruinous judgment, and now all
there i loft of them is a few cantonments
ot their forces in party power and a dis
gus.ing i.iMory. They" are moving for
ward by mi.vini; out, not lost to retrospect
nor to memory dear. Some of their Sou! Ii
cin leaders are culling for a reorganisa
tion of parties, lint what good will a re
organization of the same matcriuls be?
Since slavery and slavery extension into
the pust and present territories is dead,
and l''ree Trade will never be permitted
a real birth, and siale sovereignty in all
probability throttled for the last tune, and
since tcrriiorial popular sovereignly has
expired, and Mason and Dixon's line is
rubbed out, they can have little further
use for their Northern Democratic allies
who only gave them a ruinous hope of suc
ceeding in measures wliicb would have in
volved a. I hands in a general wreck.
They, tin) their b-vil beat to aasisr the
South in her aiietnptio-set up a Southern
.Conledcraoy, giving- h.r hojw of final suc
cess, even after the fall nt Vicksl.nrg and
I ito ball Id of Uettyj-r.org.' Htter which,
every man on either" side killed was fnur
dtrtd, for no nation of people has' a right'
to commence or continue a war without
reasonable prospects of success. , It be
comes, then, ' simple, useless slaughter.
The Southern sense of honor must in
stinctively withdraw itself from compan
ionship in a forgery that would dUgrace
anv but Northern Democratic leaders, as it
dm iu the assasination of Liuootn. .
It would be better, then, for the South,
instead of being solid against the party of
statesmanship at th. North, to join heart
and hands with them and oonduot the af
fairs of the government for the best good
of all, and then there would be wretohed
n.ss enough in the country to employ a
large Bhare of the time of the philanthro
pist and reformer.
This would be a most happy consuma
tiou to the last victory, which means that
national integrity, the basis of credit, so
fur manifested, which has placed our bonds
at a premium of four per pent.; which
makes a ten dollar note to know that its
redeeming eagle is in the vault of the
nearest hunk, and is a legal tender the civ

fiii.KM, Va., Nov. 29,
Dear Mr. (Jronby: I have just received
your le'ter, of the 24ih, and I asure yon
that I am very glad to hear from you.
If Oen. toirfieM knew me as you do I
would certainly seek an interview with
him, and earnestly impress certain views
He has it ill Ill's power by a manly and
independent course to rid our enure coun
try of sectionalism. It is true that Ihe
people south prefer a tariff (or revenue
( nly, and they are in favoi of what is com
monly called "Stale Might," nut these are
trivial matters ooii.fwftted to the. one great
matter upon whieh the South is at issue,
not with the North,, but with the Republi
can party, t, r ... - ? .
Is it a crime for us to desire to keep onr
State governioeots in the hands of the
honest and intelligent people? Look' at
Virginia, for example. A wing of the
Democratic (.arty, led by Mahone, went
off and conioiiu-d with the so-called . IW,
publican parly and got control of the Leg
islature, ond passed an act not only repu
diating nearly one-third of the public debt,
but providing that every possible cent of
current indebtedness should be paid before
the creditors should receive anything on
the portion of the debt assumed. This act
was teialiated. .This fall tiie negroes ex
cept those who always voted with Ihe
Democrats voted for Garfield, and you
see what become of forcible readjustment.
Now the facts ore you can't coniiel men
to chnt.ge theiropiuions. Suppose enough
white men in every Southern Slate were to
vote with th negroes to turn over the
Slate governments to them, the dishonesty
and degredatu.n that would fnllt.w would
la? a curse to the entire country. We are
here, with our wives and children, and we
want In our States honest and Christian
governments. Look at matters, for a mo
ment, in a dispassionate Diauner, and see
what the proposition is that is made to us.
The Republicans say (hey are trying to
keep Ilia government out, of the bands of
the Irish and rabble, that may are the
friends of honest and inlviligent govern
ment. Veti they say to ua; i"Tun your
government over to the negroes and iden
tify yourselves with as." No; candidly,
what do yon thiirk or snefv 'a proposlts'on '
Could it be ecied that any decent man
would identify himself with the negroes,
and thereby aid tti'm in taking possession
of the governments? Is is not' th. true
duty, even of rebels, and should it not be
their privilege to keep their governments
iu the hst)ds of those who will make them
a blessing and not a curse? It is true that
Greece was twice and Rome was once sub
jected to those less .learned ond virtuous
than they, but that was the result of wars;
but where, in oil history, i. there on in
stance, save in America, where a oivilized
people hav6 been asked voluntarily to turn
over their governments to the lowest race
of people living? - But some will say, that
a vote for Gen. Garfield would not have
done this: - What he will do remains to
bo seen, but the party which he represents
have a single issue with the South, aud
that is the supremscv of the negro. lint
they say, not supremacy, only equality, 1
say supremacy, because iu any Republican
party which can possibly be organized iu
any of the Southern States the negroes
will be largely in the majority and hence
they will have the supremacy.
But the question is this, What must be
done? What should Gen. Garfield do?
1 answer and I koow that I ami correct-e-that
he should declare I nut it is tho. chris
tian duty to keep he government, &tate
and Federal, in the hands of those, most
worthy aud most competent to manage it.
This has not been done by the Republican
parly, so. far as the South ts coucerned,
but the appointments made in the. South
have in nearly every case been 'of incom
petent men, and in most cases, of men
who ore low and dishonest. What com
munity could respefct' or suppor't .a party
which would thhs degrade it?
Ni)w if Gen. Garfield will recognize these
facta, and rise above faction, so as to re
move from olliee all, iu the South, who ore
Incompetent or unworthy ond put iu their
places the very best men which is hie sol
einn duty tetfurdless of party connection.
If he will give, his influence to the eleva
tion of our State governments instead of
to their vWrtlJition,---as his predecessors
have done if he will declare it bis pur
'pose to strive to keep true government of
the Southern Status as woll as those of the
Northern States in the honds of the best
fieople, and will (love the eonrage fearless
y to carry out aueh an intention, then sec
tionalism -will be at end. And why? Be
cause the Ignorant in oil sections will see
that they cannot control and their contin
ued efforts to rlo so' vVtlf cease, and we can

in John street and Maiden Lane of this

out of the Black il ills during the last
three years. These streets are the centre
of the manufacturing aud assaying, and
the amount of gold jewelry stored in safes

that in th treasury. The competition is
