From all accounts, I the New Yorkers had a monster mfceting at Cooper Institute on Monday night last. There has been notping equal to,it. ae are told since the great as sembly of the people of pVw York in -April, 1801, when tha'var feeling wu-j at its height. ' Men of all shades political opinion, it is said, pnn aside their deferences to unite li a common i assertion of the v-rincirles underlv- . r I, , ,. ii!r every ionn of retvlv republican government. ' The IsewYork TJ'-ZtZ says : In the list of the d'Hicers of last night's meet iiir' the names of or i zi rial antislavery mcii like Mr. Fran cis G. Shaw; ar .r' of conspicuous Hepubiic;iiiS like Mr. Evart-?, Mr. Peter Cooper, ex-Govcnmr S:ilo j raoii, Mr. Barney, Mr. William E. Dodge, .Mr. God wit:, Mr Jessup aud Mr. Stewart, are to le read side li j J-iue niui in, i(l UiCU UIJil ride i trusU'u leaders ol the Jcmocracv ol Now York. Mr. Belabnt, who c.il- led the meeting to cnir, struck the ! true key-note of its ntaning when I he evokod to the w'vjh of ail who heard him the rea:ilic.io:is of tint I great demonstration of 1801, in which, a leader the:,, as to-day he remains a leader if the constitu : tional Democratic p:.rty of the Noah : he accepted f r lio sake of the ; Union the drjad i.ue forced upon ' us by our mieguird brethren of the South. By tlbse memories Mr. I Bc'.iLont appfcileJ to them to reuse ! themselves dice more in behalf ; of a thing, ijearc than the Union, j dearer tlian,coutry, dearer even j than life itflf,' the thing vrliich ' men call 'civil liborty.' The ac i knowledge J hetil and patriarch of ! the free prls or'Amcrica, Mr. Brv- ant, witn yuicu wnoso specca t:ie meeting opened a republican to I day as inlSGl he was a Republican responed completely to the spir- 1 1 of rir. SeLiioni,".s aiUlies, acn he deciar.d that in the minds of these wb.lad organized and given shape andl purpose to the meeting Cao swiv- ,aad one motive only bore 'uWnyJa sincere desire to pre serve the (institution from violation and to priient an act of arbitrary power fro becoming a precedeut in the futre.' To this determina tion all tie speakers, each in his owt' wavind from his own stand-" ; point, g;fe varied and earnest e;:- j pression and to this in all the forms ' m whic?it was presented to them ! the mivfity assembly of the people ! thundeed forth their unanimous j 'Mmer,' in a maimer which showed, ! bcyou all doubt or peradventure that hatcvcr pains may he taken by g!ty eGcials or by purblind partians to becloud ami beclog the true-Puc now made up between Pretdent Grant and his lieutenants on tie one side and the citizens of tin United States on the other side, th people of Nov.'

It deals with no complicated questions oi policy. Jt leaves to Congress, the things of Congress, and to the Executive the things of the Executive. It simply, once for all and with a purpose that will not be shaken, calls upon both Congress and the Executive to remember that thev exist only by the law and that ! t'hev exist only for the people. It paoclaims so plainly that every man in whese heart the spirit of American freedom has not been sti lled by party passion or by personal 'i L . r... i.:.-. l :..- in' r:ceu muse pause iiiu ma uuaiii'osa arid fi om his pleasure to hear and heeVl it, that 'the manner in which the Vedeial troops have been cm plovec1 i a Louisiana constitutes an abuse of authority which is danger ous to public liberty in an equal degree in every part of the Union.' Tho Uarjet Baggers. The Chica'A2W5ie thinks the government ''i.Ten already too lenient" with Vt,5Er)et-bag element of Southern IlX,'!Jjanisra and tells 'die southern mfc;c' i I of Congress that it does rXZme them to criticise, much VsrJ threaten, the republican party crthe administra tion bcaause the yorthern republic cans, as a party, j ace disposed to hold the carpe'ngers responsible for the disoidAed condition of things at the Se'uth. Itt adds : 'The government has borne with their official miscanduct and corrupt tion until it is i possible to bear them longer. LU warnings have been made thg' occasion for fresh outrage. The i crublican party owes no favor or au Vantage to the spec ulative carpt-baeKers. ls it is they' have SeakeneU it, in one large fraction 'c tLe country have placed it in a ajse position and have load e l it down with a burden of re proach and calumny for which it is not fairly responsible, but which it has had to carry. They have repeb led from the Republican party thou sands of votes, have hampered it in its work of reconstruction and have brought odium upon honest Souths ern Republicans. Carpet bag Re publicans might as well understand at the outset of their caucusings and before they precede any further that Northern Republicans have no J consideration to extend to the fraud?, corruptions, trickery, thiev ery. and pervertion of law which have characterized Southern carpet baggers, and that if they wish equal rights they must rid them selves of this pestilential curse.' THE PUSSIDENT'S MESSASE. Comments of tlio Press. It is clear that President Grant has retreated from the position he assumed when he sanctioned Secret tary Belknap's 'all of us' dispatch, and the country is to bo conjjratula ted on his adoption of more sober and defensible opinions. Whether the change be due to the protests of certain members of his Cabinet or to tho widespread expressions of public indignation it is fortunate for the President that he has reconsid ered his first determination and been induced to change his mistaken policy X. Y. ierald (Ind.) And this, we suppose, is the com promise under which the Cabinet lias been reunited. Instead of de nouncing the banditti telegram of Sheridan as monstrous, it is agreed that the President shall say noth ing about it. Instead of characteriz ing the reply of Belknap as a false- hood- ecause a misrepresentation of the views of other members of the Cabinet it is passed over in silence. Instead of confession that the troops ought not to have been left in New-Orleans subject to the control of a man likn Kellogge, the act is palliated. Instead of an admonition or a denunciation of Gens. Sheridan and do Trobriand for submitting the army to the partisan purpose of Kellogg a week arr-i l.-icl" YrniLijr. tho nrtrnd &3 o cased upon the plea 'that the army is not composed of lawyers capable of judging at a moment's notice of just how far they can go in the maintenance of iaw Vad older.' The last and extreme punishment fcr Presidential lawlessness was never so richlv deserved. rNew-York World (Dem.) The concluding portions of this most lame and importent message satisfy us that Grunt is getting fri-htened. It opens in a boister ous tone, and tapers off with a piteous whine. X. Y. Sun (nil.) The President has missed his golden opportunity. Having, in the language of Secretary Belknap's famous dispatch, once 'thoroughly approved' the acts of Gen. Sheri" dan, he now recedes from that ap proval, but seeks to evade the logi cal consequences of the recession, which it would have been both politic and manly for him cheerfully to accept. N. Y. Evening Post (Hep.) Displeased fcv Grant's Misstatements. A correspondent of the Tribune from New Orleans telegraphs this : The President's message does not greatly comfort the Kellogg party or the army, as it is only a stream of apologetic special pleading. At tention is directed to some very grave errors of fact in tlie docu ment. For examble, the President cites the killing of Judge Crawford and District Attorney Harris, in North Louisiana, in October, 1873, as specimens of political murders. it is very welt known that that they vvcro assassinated by a band of out laws, headed by a convicted mur-- derer, who had escaped, and tnat politics had nothing to do with it. JuJge Crawford was unusually res pected as an upright man and liar ris was an ultra Democrat, the in-, timate personal and political friend of Gov. McEnery, and a Southern man by birth and principle, lie raised the first company in that dis trict for the Confederate army, served through tho war, and was al ways a consistent and staunch op ponent ot the liadical otate Cjov ment of Louisiana. The truth is that he and Judge Crawford were fiercely prosecuting a gang of crinv. inals, who murdered them in re venge. There was absolutely no politics in the case. The lJicayune ol last week pub lished a list of the murderers con-. fined in the parish prison during the years 1873 and 18(4. They are taken from the official record?. The total number is 74, and of these 59 were negroes and well known Radicals Several were po liceman or other stipendiaries of the Kellogg Government. The even ing papers publish a list of convict ed criminals pardoned by Kellogg during the same period. The total is 84 13 murderers, 6 convicted of manslaughter, and 9 others for crimes punishable by death. If you want to sell your goods advertise in the Soutiiekxeu Ex- QUIRER. Grant How He Looks. The editor of the Atlanta Con stitutionalist was in Washington City last week and while there called upon the President, He says : " In company with Mr. Stephens and his secretary, we paid a visit to the President. The door3 at the White House were opened by a white porter whose face was pro fusely decorated with ' courage bumps ' or ' rum blossoms.' He made up in politeness, however, what he Jacked in personal pulchri tude. Gen. Grant's reception room is in the second story, but the good natured porter insisted that Mr. Stephens and his friends should be seated in a private room on the ground floor, and instead of having to go to the President, His Exceb lency would gladly come to them. We had not long to wait. General Grant entered quietly, walked up to Mr. Stephens and inquired kindi ly about his health. After that the writer and Mr. Oglesby were pre sented in due form. Grant pre sented his hand, and received us without the least attempt at stiff nes3. We were seated in the only chairs convenient, and Mr. Presi dent, after glancing around for a place to sit upon, walked off to a corner, secured a chair and drew it up to tho circle. lie had the stump of a cigar in his hand but did not put it to his mouth during the in terview. He chatted about the theatre and other common topics, and certainly displayed as little " arristocracy " as any man of high position we ever met. His eyes are not as strong as they used to be. They were weak and caused him some trouble. His face has the same resolute look, but it has grown puffy and bears the marks of high steaming. What he will do with himself, when power drops from him and with power the friends and toadies of the sunshiny hours, it is impossible to say. He is a strange man and may have a notable history beyond the Presi dency ; but the chances are that, with the loss of authority and influ ence, ne will seek inspiration or consolation after that fashion which rapidly demolishes all men of ac tion forced into retirement " for qui.it to quick bosoms is a hell." . mf - v The Term Esquire. There is a cornmonly received opinion in Great Britain that any gentleman is an esquire who has 1,500 a year in landed properity; but the fact is, that no estate, how ever large, confers the rank. Sir Edward Coke observes that every esquir is a gentlempn, and a gentle man is ueiined to be one 'qui arma garit' who bears coat armor the grant of which adds gentility to a man's family. Camden, a great authority on such matters, reckons up four kinds of esquires : 1. lhe oldest son3 of knights and their eldest sons in perpetual suc cession. 2. The eldest sons of the younger sons ol peers and their eldest sons m perpetual succession. Lsquires created by the non- arch's letters patent, or rather in vestiture, and their eldest sons. 4. Esquires by virtue of their offices as justices of the peace, and others who hold any ofhee of trust under the crown. To these may be added the esquires of Knights of the Bath, each of whom constitutes three at his installation, and all those who have at any time been called esquires by the crown in any documents whatever. In tlii3 democratic community every one is an 'Esquire' or an 'Honorable,' unless he prefers to be called Major, Colonel or General the title of Captain being monopo lized by the commanders of our lake schooners and Mississippi flat boats. 'Governor' and -Judge' were once highly thought of in this latitude, but since the appellation ha3 been bestowed on such people as the Kelloggs, the Moseses, the Wellses, the Durells, the Ludelings and their compeers, no Southern gentleman feels honored by wear ing titles which have been put to such base uses. New Orleans Bulletin. "Our Living and our Dead." The January num'oer of tlli3 monthly magazine is upon our table. In addition to its usual in the teresting matter, it contains first chapter of a story entitled 'A Summer Idyl,' by Christian Keid, which we have already re ferred to in these columns. It fully sustains the character of this North Carolina authoress, and will add much to the interest of tho Maga zine. We also find in this number the first of a serial story by Mrs. Cicero W. Harris, of Wilmington, formerly of Graenville and well known in our midst, The story is founded in Granville county, and while Mrs. Harris will undoubtedly please the general read, her writ ings will be of peculiar interest to her many friends throughout the State. Our Livuvi and Our JJcad is noblished monthly by Colonel S. D Pool, at S3 tier annum. It should be in every household in the State The Charlotte Centenial. We read, with pleasure, the re marks from various journals in re ference to a Centenial celebration to be held at Charlotte. The movement meets with our warmest approval. It is a spirit of State pride that should be encouraged. We may say that North Carolina was the cradle of liberty; it was within her borders that the spirit of independence first took a root that was Boon destined to grow to a large tree, that nobly withstood the winds of English oppression. With in the Hornet-nest precinet was lound as brave a set of pioneers as yet ever lead any movement. The brave, sons of Mecklenburg were forward in the fray, and their des claration of independence from the British yoke, dates far anterior to tho one of memorable note that took root in Philadelphia. North Carolina, with such an arry of sons as Hon. Wm. A Graham, Zeb Vance and others of like noteriety would be able to have a Centenial celebration that would prove a credit to the State. Why not in connec tion with the ' celerabtion let us have an exposition and industrial exhibition to show what a degree of rank and influence our proud State has reached, in the various branches of Art? Farming indus try, Mercantile pursuits &c, that the world may see the mamouth might in the sc i le of human affairs we have ascended, as compared with the small colony of brave freeman that had the boldness to face, tho British Lion in his Strong hold. We add our voice to it, lec it bo started on a sure footing, and on a scale of magnitude, to do honor to our feeling. Mount Airy Watchs man. Hard Times in lS19-'20. People who complain so much of e existing 'hard times,' would do well to read the following from Benton's 'Thirty Years Recollec tions.' He says : . 'The years 1819 and 1820 were a period of gloom and agony. No tq 0110-5-5 noitker -nor cilvorj no payer convertible into specie; no measure or standard of value left maining. The local bapks, all but those of New England, after a brief resumption of specie payment.;, again sunk into a state of suspen sion. The bank of the United States, created as a remedy for all these evils, now at the head of the evil, was prostrate and helpless, with no power left but of suing its debtors and selling their property, and purchasing lor itseil at it own nominal price. No price for pro duce; no sales but those of the sheriff and marshal; no purchasers at the execution sales, but the creditor, or some hoarder of money; no employment for industry; no demand for labor; no sale for the product of the farm; no sound of hammer, but that ol the auctioneer. knocking down property. Stop laws, property laws, replevin laws, stay laws, loan omce laws, the interven tion of the Legislature between creditor and debtor this was the business of legislation in three forths of the States of the Union of all South and West of New Eng lond. No medium of exchange but depreciated paper; no change, even, but little bits of fould paper, narks ed so many cents, and signed by 6ome tradesman, barber, or inn keeper; exchanges deranged to tho per extent of fifty or one hundred cent. Distress the universay cry of tho people; relief the universal demand, thundered at the door of all Legislatures, State and Federel.' Our Government Its Ezact Condi tion. We have seen nowhere such an exact and comprehensive statement of the present condition of the Gov ernment under which we live as the following from the New York Financier. Behold it, citizens ! " The President does as he pleas es in Louisiana, and notifies Con- gress that he shall continue to do so unless the matter is taken out of his hands ; Congress ignores it, and be goes from one seizure of power to another, public placidly looking on and not realizing that the strue ture of government is undergoing a reactionary trial but quite as seri ous as that sustaiued during the war. The Government of to-day is not that founded by the Constitu tion. It is not monarchial ; it is not aristocratic); it is not really rep resentative ; it is an anomaly; a fierce, although bloodless experi ment. Tho form remains, but the thing has changed. What now er ists ia a representative government trying to use the powers of a con stitutional monarchy, clinging to the assumptions made in the war under the plea of necessity, and waging a conflict between tho fed eral power and the power of the States, while the people are yet un der tho soothing influence of the notion that the govermental form is so simple and perfect that it will continue to run on itself without serious jars, as it did for seventy years." l-lry st.
