op the bracks factories and
Asomewhat protracted iourncvtliroiiL'h
the South, extending from Virginia to
tho Gulf and thence North through the
East Mississippi Stales to tho Ohio, has
been a most interesting and instructive
lesson. The same ground has been
traversed many times and the political,
business and social aspect of the two
races discussed by many intelligent ob
servers and ready writers, but 1 do not
recall any general investigation of the
condition of the South that has not been
inspired more or less by some partisan
aim. Believing that tho time has come
when the Southern question should be
considered and judged by the North
from some higher standpoint than po
litical necessity, I havo diligently
sought to understand tho South as it is
and to present its progress and prospects
with tho utmost candor. It is now more
than fifteen years since tho war closed.
A new generation ihat had no participa
tion in llio terrible conllict has como up
and iilled Half tho places of those who
witnessed the most sanguinary struggle
of modern history, anil those who yet
survive miiit soon, at tho latest, give
place to tho younger blood that is press
ing in their footsteps. There is a lull iu
thu storm of political strife. A new ad
ministration been chosen for four years ;
tho long paralasis in business that fol
lowed tho revulsion of 187!1, is just disa
peaiing under the quickened industry
and renewed prosperity of all sections';
tho most bountiful crops have been gar
nered during tho past fow years; the un
rest that disturbed employers and em
ployed iu North and Southerns perished,
and tho nation needs only that wise gov
ernment that governs least, to assure a
period of unexampled growth in nil the
nttribut s of cmmiing wealth. The now
census of tho South ends all dispute iu
regard to tho substantial advancement of
thu reconstructed Stntes. Instead of bo
ing tho theatres of thriftlessness anddis
order, they havo shamed tho demagog,
ues of both sections by tho harmony of
conllicting races and interests nnd the
wonderful increase of industrial products.
Pico labor has mom than vindicated it
self, even in tho experiment of tho sud
den emancipation nnd endowment of
cqunl rights before tho law of four mill
ions of untutored bondmen, and the man
tor who onco believed that government
and social order revolved around llio in
stitution ot slavery, has learned that tho
freedom of tho black race and tho unity
of interest tlint common citizenship in
spired, nro common blessings to whites
How to restoro the North niid tho
South to the most complete and lasting
nnrmony, is now tnu uppermost desiro ot
honest men of nil parties nnd sections.
Thu Xoith is now, as it has been for
twenty yenrs, entrusted with tho Admin
istration of the government. It will
make nnd administer thu lnws,nnd it can
do much to hinder or iidvnuee the gener
al prosperity of tho wholo country. Tho
South is not animated by partisaM hos
lilily to tho coming President. On the
contrary, thcro is every disposition to
commend and support cordially and to
blame with reluctniice. There is no de
sire to command tho spoils of pover,but
there is nu earnest nnd almost universal
desiro for peace that peace tiiat honest
government should ever give to an lion
est people. The supremo want of the
South is thoroughly competent and up
right civil service, and that should not
be thought as a favor from nny faithful
President. It is not only n matter of
right to every section, but it is n matter
of imperative duty on tho part of the gov
ernment. A va9t preponderance of the
Imbalance that has disgraced the South
during tho last decade has been created
by characterless, unscrupulous and often
recklessly dishonest hedcral otllcials.
United States Judges have been appoin
ted because of their bitter hostility to the
South, who would not bo charged with
the administration of justice in tlio North.
Marshals have been selected mainly for
their willingness to prostitute their offi
cial power lo foment sectional strife, to
oppress unoltemiing citizens and to pol
lute elections. Postmasters have been
appointed who wcro utterly incompetent
n some instances being unable to read
or write, merely because they were no
teiiual in demoralizing and controlling
tho ignorant blacks. Custom and reve
nue officers have been selected to make
collection of revenue secondary to the
corrupt control of elections. United
States Commissioners have united with
District Attorneys and Marshals to dIiiii-
der the government by the wanton vex
ation of struggling business interests in
the South, and the special Agencies of
the government aro crowded with noted
criminals as rewards for noted political
crimes. In several of the Southern States
I found convicts, fugatives and outlaws
enjoying the patronage of the adminis
tration and inviting public contempt for
government and law by their shameless
listinction. J Ins iilot not upon the
South but upon the North whoso admin
istration is guilty ot its creation lias las
ted with more or less prominence lor a
dozen years, and it has been the most
fruitful sources of sectional turbulence.
I submit to honest and considerate Pe-
publicans of the North that it is time to
end this terrible stain upon free govern
ment. I believe that General Unrheld
would gladly inaugurato and maintain
an honest civil service in the South if it
would not involve him in a conflict with
his party leaders ; but ho knows that
every leadir lias his henchmen preying
on the government in the South who
dare not bo honored at home, and that
the control of party power in the South,
for which coniliction habitually wrestles,
has become merely a matter ot the con
trol f tho Federal officials. There' is to
day no Pepublican party in the S'outh,
solely because unscrupulous adventurers
will allow no .reputable man to lie alio-
publican, and what should be a great
party boutli as well as iNortli, is simply
band of often wrangling official plunder
ers nnd a disgusted followingof ignorant
blacks. Most of tiie rasponsible federal
offices could be filled by sincere ISepub
ucans who are now compelled to act
against tho party in State elections, and
in nearly every State the colored race
could furnish capable men who would lie
respected by all classes. Such men as
Durant and Tucker, of Louisiana, l!e
vein and 15ruce, of Mississippi, and Kid
ney, ot boutli (Jaroliuia, could creditably
and acceptably fill any Federal office,
but they are, as a rule, driven to the
rear by the aggressive jobbers and dis
tiirbers who make delegations to con
ventions and clamor at Washington lor
their rewards. Where competent Re-
publicans can be had to till positions
id tlio south, they should bo appointed,
but where they cannot bo had, neither
the stranger nor thu incompetent should
bo commissioned to disgrace Kcpttblican
power. If General Garfield should tnku
a resolute stand and enforce honest and
capablo civil servicoin tlio South, ho will
havo no need to tucker over repudiation
with Mahono or the now Senator from
Tennessee to secure a positive adminis
tratiou support in the Senate. The Soutl
will not republicanizu itself iu Congress
but it will give a faithful support to the
general policy ot a just administration
With tho irreconcilable interests in Gen
oral Garlield's own party, it will be situ
ply impossible for him to maintain a Pe
publican administrative majority in cith
er Suiiato or House if his important pat
ronage shall have been dispensed, but
by a reputable civil service in the south
he can defy the assaults of faction with
out in any degree impairing his position
as a positive Kepiiblicau. Is this not
tho wise course tor tho Kepiiblicau Pres
ident nnd party of tho North 1 and is it
not an imperious duty.
TUP. SOUTH WANTS TO BR LET AI.ONH.
The South has ono supremo desire and
that is for peace to bo let alone. And
it is not merely the desiro of tho whites
it is as much the desire of tho blacks. I
havo met scores of the most intelligent
men iu every Stnte, and all of them out
ot olhce expressed tlio same wish to
bo let alone. Tho problem of raco is
solved in thu booth and no pcderal pow
er or political device can change it. The
white man will domiuato without regard
to the occasional numerical preponder
anco of tlio blacks, simply because sit
perior intelligence and a domination that
tho memory of man runneth not to tho
contrary, cannot be revered without
chaos. Tlio black man has tried it, and
ho is conscious of his failure and of his
failure to protect himself, lie cannot
lead,and those who most successfully lead
him to appeal to his baser passions and
tempt him to his own degradation ami

to escapo from his own incompetent self-
vine, ami no lias given up the unequal

TUB 1-UTURH PF.RIL OF TDK SOUTH.
Tho one great peril to the South for
winch i can see no lmmediato remedy is
thu now inevitable division of the whito
vote of the South and tho certain appeal
of contending factions to the blacks ns
the arbiter of disputing ambition.
ive, until recently, shared the verv gen
oral belief of the north that the division
of the white vote of the South must be
fortunate for tho black voters, as it
would create rivalry in extending the
fullest protection to tho blacks. I am
now thoroughly convinced against all
my wishes, that the necessary and now
near division oi the whites will be iruit-
nu oi great demoralization to both races
and that it will be the severest trial of
wisdom or universal suffrage. There is
now nothing to demoralize tho black
man or to divert him from his industry
and tho education of his children. He
is rapidly becoming tho owner or lesee
of lands and is his own farmer, aud is.
in many instances, accumulating wealth
with habits ot industry; but when the
wnite man locks horns with his fellow in
tho battle of ambition, tho most artful
demagogues will best control tho igno
rant ireedmeii, and tho degradation of
botn races must follow. Mahono teael
es the lesson most pointedly iu Virginia,
where ho has outstripped the Kouibons
in the devices of the demagogue and
has consolidated eighty thousand proper
ty less voters to stamp tne liieltaceablo
stain of repudiation upon nu honore
Commonwealth, and repeal the just tax
that oponstho free schools to tlio colored
children. The division of tho whites in
Geoigia under tho Colquitt and Norwood
nags, sent a hihticliio ot debauchery
among the colored vote of that State,
nud all tho thriftless cupidity of ignor
ance has been whetted for future eon-
tests. This severe trial of universal suf.
frago must now come.and it will present
the problem in an unexpected phase to
thu nation. I lie whites can do nothint
else than divide. They cannot and thev
should not do otherwise They am full
of human nature; thev have now no
common danger to make them forget all
differences of opinion and all tho impul
ses of ambition; the repressed jealousies
and longings of this people will burst
out in widespread and bitter antngoiiism,
nnd the black man will bo thu umpire
tweon them. 'Ihe seductive anneal
the agrarian and the cry of thoeonimun
ists will bo heard by tho courted black
mail, nnd his prejudices, his passions, his
uppetites nnd his indolenco will be np
pealed to rather than his reason nnd his
interests. I now fear this surelv an
preaching trial of tlio bliiol man as tho
sorest that he has yet grappled within

we must read it as a literal historical
fact. As a history there is much that it is
impossible to reconcile with a literal
tact, without impeaching tho honor nud
justice of God, who is tho master spirit
of all knowledge. Many learned but
uninspired men give their opinion that it
is a parable.
Dr. Daniel "Whitby, Dr. Hammond,
of tho Synod of Dort (A. D., 1(557) says

know thu mysteries of tho Kingdom
of Heaven, but unto them (the pro
miscuous crowd) in parables. Again it
is reported by two recorders tliat with
out a parable spake Hu not unto them.
hen it is remembered that the ha-
Tiors discourse was delivered to a con
gregation, not disciples only, but a pro
miscuous crowd of Publicans, niniiers,
Scribes and Pharisees, and that lie ml
dressed Himself mom particularly to thu
class Pharisees. Tho Jews, especially
tho Scribes and Pharisees, were above
all other people, fainilinr with this iigu

therefore, only renders himself more ob

mode of teaching, in order to under
