NEGRO SUFFRAGE.—We have said re•
reatedly that we are opPoied to giving
the ballot to the negro race in America.
Wo aro opposed to it from no prejudi•
cial reasons., but because we , conscien
tiously believe it is a wrongi to the na- '
tion and a wrong tQ the..negrocs them
selves. WO'liave hoard it said that
this is a Republican form - of govern
ment, ready
- to nioeivelhe emigrants
from foreign nations, and invest them
with the privileges of Americans.
While wo have done this, as far as con
coma White Men, and will continuo to
do, so, under die ptovisiona of the Con:
stitution, yet we believe there am mo
tives .of - ,good policy which should
-pi s ompt deny the privileges of vo
ting-and.hdhling - office, to blackmen.

community; by giving eacheqUal rights
to lifeilibertyand property, is proven
by the aetnat eXistenee of sueli condi
tion; but
i that they can livoin thesame
community, with equal political rights,
is actual experience to i . be un
true and unsafe. The two races are too
spparate and distinct to' admit of any
such equality. We have evidence of
this -in the:Southern States; where Con
gress has assumed the power, against
the will'of the . peoPlO,' to u Oonfor the
suffrageOn the negro element. Alrdady
it hits bred a feud,; which will exist as
Jong as the privilege is permitted. We
- have also evidence's Of the nogre'ne
tun. having in :,those States more
than enough votes to •give; them the
balance, el power,..theybh,vo in many
Instances elected 'negtiies to nfileo; who
will:undoubtedly Conforin in all things
to the wishes,of their own race, oven
to the detriment of -the interests of the
whites. If will not be a:!qaestion of
policy•with-them, but ratlier , a 'ques
tion of self-interest, 'and the country's
'interest will be sacrificed • to..passion,
pruintion and prejudice.,,; The example
of-tho situation of affairs in the• South
as it new 'exists, may be taken as a
if all the ncgroes of the nation be al
lowed the-same privilege of voting and, for we hold that both
these privileges Will and mast go to-
Ohm.., The negroeS will soon under
stand • that they hold- the balance
. of
power, and knowing-this they will use
their knowledge to the best advantage
in promoting - their oWn, interests visa
race. For these reasons We believe it to
be a ,wrong to, the qountry to-give-the
two races equal political privileges,. It
can be easily understood why it would
he a wrong to the negroes themselves,

The Southern States,
The following article which we copy
from . the Philadelphia -Evening 'Tele•
graph of Saturday, a prominent Repub•
Mean papor,will give the reader a pret
ty correct idea of the character of men
now coutroling the reconstruction of
the Southern" States. It will not do
for the Telegraph to say that it was "by
the merest accident that such men ob
tained the ear of the Southern people"—
the blacks of course, for no other peo
ple in the South would be influenced
by such crazy fanatics. The kind of
men the Telegraph complains of were
encouraged:by the, northern radical par
ty and Congress, and helped 'to posi
tions by the free use of money appro•
piiated by the party. But now that
their works are likely to damage the
Republican party and reconstruction,
thosewhowere foremost in giving aid
aro anxious to.speak out and throw
the blame upon "merest ,accident."' It
won't de, gentlemen—am white ,radi
eals of the South are powerless .with
out-the aid of the Republican party in
the :North, and Whatever evil's are
brought upon the eountry'by the radi
cals of the South, ,the radicals , of the .
North : will be hold responsible for. Ra
dical reconstruction . - was ordered that
voted could be made for party purpos
es, but we predict, that if the present
. plan is persisted in by Congress• and
the Republican party, reconstruction
will fail and the party advocating it
'will•be defeated at the next Presiden
tial election.:
Here is the article from the Tele•
graph :
anxthing is calculated to shako one's
faith in the doctrine that the world
not only moves backward; but - does
not so much as pause in its onward:ca
reer toward a political and social mil
lennium, airs the course pursued 'by
some men who hitve,.b,the morestac
cident, obtained the ear of the South
ern•people; Mr.'.D. H. Bingham, a
member of the Alabama Constitution
al Convention, is 'a fair , ' specimen -of
this class. Ho is it native'of Vermont
but ,having resided in Alabama for
more than.thirty years, it is reasonable
to suppose that he has hadlime to bo
come sufficiently identified with South.
ern interests to desire to Pronuito thorn
in• every possible way. But we regret
the neeessityi . which compels us to say
that Mr. Bingham is nothing more nor
less than a fire-brand in the midst of
very inflammable materials, He'ari
p.elikraito,nameoncetved th e ead .; that
every. other white:man in the State is
on the 'high road to perdition, and wilt
be vastly benefitted by 'a little ••pintga
toilet experience before'ho enters 'into
final amid unceasing torment. There
fore, ho does all that he possibly can
towards fomenting ill-will between the
two races which must dwell together
in the Southern States for a few years,
if not fora!! time. Mr. Binghatngoes
about the matter sySternatically,• add
by the most inconsiderate and nonso,n,
sical harangues endeavors to. foster
and perpetuate in the minds ,of the
freedmen a feeling of antagonism to
wards the white portion of -the popu
lation, In the same spirit he speaks
and votes, as a member of the ,Consti-•
tational Convention ; and if its labors
are to be based altogether upon 'his
platform, then woe to, the unhappy
men who have elevated him and oth
ers of like spirit to power.
This Alabama Convention, in which
Mr. Bieghtim at present figures so'con
spicuously, is overstepping the, bounds
of propriety in more ways, than , one.
Impressed with an idea, that its, pow
ere are altogether sovereign-and • un•
limited, it has undertaken to legislate
upon the subject of divorces, and simi
lar. matters, • thereby ; simply holding
itself op to tlividicele of the country.
There are 'likewise in ,the Louisiana
Convention some men who aro afflict
ed,with a sense of their own, supreme
authority and wisdom ; and they have
pr:Opiised—although the' Convention
has not as yet had foolishness
.to de
clare:---,that no other Convention 'for
the',further revision of the, Constitu
tion shall he authorized by the Legisla
Wye within fi 9y ety 'years. If such a
ridiculous measure is approved by this
body, it will insure to .Lpuisittna, in all
'probability, a repetition of scones simi
lar to those which transpired in Rhode
Island during the Dorr rebellion. Wise
'as' the law-makers of Louisiana may
be,;they shOuld, net attempt : ,to •,lsgis

The task. confided by Congress ',to

Yet; by giving loOse rains to their ani

act al ft he good they can _possibly, achieve,.
will bring themselves into antagonism
with almost the entire, White popula

'moreover, render it necessary for Con

rebuke, by returning for material re 7

.1..3-Some . days ago a friondly
publican requesCed us to call the at
tention. of. Congross to 4 resolution
a,doptod by the Republican County
Convention held in this place in Aug.:
ust last. The resolution is as follows :
' "Eighth, That Akdreiv 'Johnsen
ought to resign, and that we call upon
Congress, immediately after re-assem
bling, to 'pet this desire of the people
in proper form and lay it, before the
person to whom il, refers.".
Now that impeachment is disposed
of, it is to .beloped that Congross will
take up and consider the importance of
the above resolution. Delays are dan
Items of General Interest.
IN the last ten days, says tho
Times, per city has Buirered ,
from a 'number of failures. Failures
have also occurred in New York and
Bostoniand - over the whole .country.
So far, the effect of these misfortunes
has hem happily, limited to a small
circle. But the clan,ceer . is not over.—
Prices are steadily fading, and we arc
aware of nothing that likely to check,
them. Many who laid in great:Am:l6,
when they cost dearly, have them on
hand, and they have declined in value.
The_ people de not buy, hoping for a
further- decline; and, eventually, the
goods must be thrown on the market,
by the holders :or i b ;the Sheriff, at
such prices a's "theyovflf bring; in : order

As an argument in favor of the• re

the total value of the cotton now in

the 'selling price, at only ten cents per

Foreign Relations.
The re-establishment of peace at:home and
the resninption, of, e.tended trade, travel and
commerce abroad, have served to increase the
number and variety' of. questions in the de
partment of Fiireigp' Affairs. -None of, these
questions, howeier, have seriously disttirbod
our•relatione with other States.'
The nepeblio of .1114:mice having been 're

engaged, in efforts ; to, rerestablieh .her.

States and Nations cannot, in this ago, well

The Exposition of Universal. Industry at
Paris hae passed; and seems to have fully-re
alized the high expectations .of the French
Government.' If due allowance be made,for
the recent political derangement of induStry
here, the part which the United States has
borne in this exhibition of invention and art
may be regarded with very high satisfaction..
During the Exposition, a conference was
held by delegates from the several nations,
the United States being one, in which the
inconvenience' to commerce and social. inter
course ' resulting , ftloin divers standards of,
mousy value were fully discussed; cud Plans
were.developed for establishing' by universal
consent &common principle for the coinage
of gold. !These conferences are expected to
be renewed with the attendance of many for
eign State's not'hithorto represented. , A re
port of these interesting proceedings will be
submitted to Congress, which will no doubt
justly appreciate , the great' object, and
,be adept any measure which may'tend
to facilitate its ultimate accoMplishment.
flu the ,twenty: fifth "of February, 1862,
Congress declared by law that the Treasury
notes without interest, authorized, by that
act . ..should . lsgal l tenders in the 'payment
dell debts, public and private, within the
United States. An annual remittance of
$30,000, less stipulated expense, accrues to
claimants under timeonvention made with
Spain in 1834. These remittances, since the
passage-of the act, have been naid, in Buell
notes. The claimants insist that the Gov
ernment ought to require yayment in coin.
