A Letter From the Capital of the A Word or Two About the Unnecessary Airs and Social Nonsense of the _Ex- Confederates. How They Talk About The Yankees. Special Correspondence . Mira Press.] RICEDIOND, Va., Nov. 23, 1869 This lovely city, to be Celebrated throughout all time as the objective. point of the great war, is now peculiarly ex ercised in view of the expected admiss ion of Virginia again into the Union.— We never shall get over wondering that she, the mother of States and of states men; should have left the sister fold, to vindicate in battle her adhesion to a stupid dogma. As the capital of the so called Confederacy, it is natural that Richmond should be the centre of much prejudice, and the focus of many bitter memories. But Richmond ought to be the pioneer of the South in re-creating that era of good feeling ; to establish which is the mission of General Grant's Administration, and which must super vene if the South expects to hold up her head in the sisterhood of States, and to regain the influence which she voluntari ly cast to the winds. However her states men may condnot themselves when ad mitted to the floor of Congress, the great bond of brotherhood at last is the social bond. And here the South has much to do. Her social temrer is not concilia tory. It is all folly to shut our eyes to the fact that a deliberate, systematic ef fort is made over all the South ; and in influential quarters, to keep alive, in so cial circles, the fires of sectional hate. The South will never win at this game! It disfigures her in all sensible men's eyes when, after the great war in which her valor and skill were so eminently dis played, she descends to social spite.— This worse than folly can injure none but the Southern people. The old, mis erable slang about "low Yankees" ought to be at once repudiated and despised.— In social life, our friends in the South should have something better to' tati about than to vie, one with the other, in epithets levelled at "Yankees." When sensible travellers hear this stuff, they are pained and amused; pained at the suicidal folly of men and women so de pendent on the aid and good neighbor. hood of the North, and amused at the nonsense ;uttered, as if the breath of spleen could diminish the stature of the great and growing North, whose heart's wish and hope is to behold a patriotic and fully restored South, and that these shall blend in a great future that will know no sections. Whatever may be said about "carpet-baggers" in the ab stract, it must be conceded that the South is responsible for all the annoy ances of provisional government, and she must admit that, without this agency, her condition this day would be far more remote from our fold than it is. It is only in our Union that there is strength —this the South has found out now by actual experiment—an experiment that she would try, though all the world of honest manhood protested against it.— Let the South stop and reflect, and they will, at once, perceive that, after all, it is to the firmness and magnanimity of the North they owe even the cohesion, the consistence, and the brightest hope of progress and wealth that they enjoy to-day. But for the firmness of the Na tional legislation, the South would have been in chaos. And wlzatev'er of good shall spring up for them from the mild and kind rule of General Grant, is found ed on the logic of the war itself, whose basis, after all, is in reconstruction acts. It is only on the foundation of loyal suf frage, built on the results of the war, that any safety or future can be found for the South. Left to the passions of her leaders, and the folly of her heedless masses, what pen can paint the confusion and bloodshed which must have sniper vened on the heels of the war ? *arse than all would have been the euecess of W.

VOL, 1, NO. 48 the traitorous policy of these Northern men who, professing so much for that people, broke every pledge, falsified all faith with them, lured them into a politi cal condition that provoked the war,from whose consequences they were pitifully helpless to protect them, and to whose insane post-war taotics they owe much political misery. We are led into this length of remark by facts that stare us so plainly in the face. It was bad enough when the South damned Longstreet as a "Yankee traitor," because he had the good sense to throw himself into that reasonable position for which we aro pleading. That treatment of Longstreet did more to convince Northern men that the South was still dangerously section al than could all the efforts of party, for it was their own voice that spoke. But now, in these temperate times, when all hands North are engaged in the honest work of restoration, it is so senseless in the South to sit down in the ashes of the past, and amidst so much that is plead ing to them of dignity and prime neces sity, for Union, peace and statesman ship, to stoop to pick up the small pre judices again out of the kennel, and spend precious time abusing the "low," "common" Yankees." This is laughable withal. In a long, extended trip through the South last summer—ourself a Conserva tive—at every step we were forced to combat the suicidal oonduct that we are here condemning. Then, on all hands, they cursed and doubted General Grant, whom, however, after Governor Walker's election, they said was beginning to look better to them. But in almost every parlor the old secession songs were sung with rare gusto, and quite a popular re- Pain was pitched on to the funny song about the "Old Rebel" who had killed a tremendous number of Yankees. but who, instead of being penitent, winds up his musio after this fashion: But I ain't agoing to ask a pardon For what I did and am; And if I'm reconstructod, 1 hope I may be d—d Then, again, suoh spicy dialogues as this sample, viz: "Did you go to the party given by —?" (a celebrated "Re.dictil.") Southern gent. "No? I wouldn't be seen with a Yankee; they're, at best, a low, common set." LI(ly, "I'd like to poison some of them." Young gent. "Yes; I know several Yankee Generals who married Irish chambermaids. It's a fact, I assure you. 1 I know it to be so," &c., &o. The above silly trash, for example, was an actual conversation. And it is a type of what is heard every day, and acted every day, in responsible and ir responsible Southern social life, And why do we publish it; to injure the South, to create prejudice against them? God forbid, The best wish of our heart is to see the Smith rise to her true stature, to her first-class importance in wealth; statesmanship and renown. But we print what we do as a mirror ; into which those people may look and see their own folly. All the help of statesmanship will avail little to reconstruct the country, if this social nonsense, exclusiveness, rude ness, creates and keeps alive sectional disgust on the part df the North, and real hatred against "Yankees" on the part of the South. Now, let no Southern hotspur affect not to undee al the drift of our strict ures. We are not striking at anybody, nor are we charging this Social condi tion of things as Negating to the whole South: We affirm, however, that such as ite have deplored is the prevailing social Southern tone, and we lament to say Unit this folly is. too manifest in the city of Richmond. Fathers and broth , eta may affect to protest that they re gret but cannot help it. Excuses of that sort beg the question, and dodge the re sponsibility. All that the North wants is patriotic reconstruction, based on in terest and affection. There is no North ern social circle where a Southern lady and gentleman would not be welcomed, and there is no decent Northern society where the feelings of ex-rebels would be wounded by taunts and flings at their fall. Strange, most strange, this con trast is between the sections, but so it is. It comes, perhaps, from the loss of slavery, which loss the South would sus tain, against all Mr. Lincoln's protests and warnings, and which, to them, has been the greatest of all gains. Now, Virginia is on the eve of admis sion to a Union of which she has been the pride and glory. All eyes are upon her; all loyal hearts and hopes are with her, Let her make haste to put down this social curse, and re-assert her form er title to hospitality and elevated senti ment. We are nothing unless we are ono country, and that means one people.-- This fact has been settled by a war whose result, if honestly worked out, will logioally be for the glorious good of all. As the "Yankees" advance South, they will not only carry with them strong arms, and ploughs, and money, and good men, and sweet and pretty women, but the wags and humorists will be in the train. 'And it will go heed with the South if merry cartoons do not spring up thick as blackberries, ridiculing a soolal , exclusiveness" which, under all the circumstances of contrast between the two sections, Couldbe made quite telling, and still require no Hogarth for their execution. How much better than all this is sterling good fellowship ? The object some women have in blow ing up their husbands is to have theta come down=with this ettotape.
