THE CARRIER'S ADDRESS.
A happy Yew Year's blushing morn,
With bright Aurora's mellow horn,
Has ushered in the year.
Let bounding joy and festive mirth
Make celebration of its birth;
And music charm tho oar.
Let every man and woman wear
The smiles, that happy seraph bear;
And children laugh and sing!
Deck cozy rooms with garlands green,
Adorned by girls of sweet sixteen;
While joyous chorals ring I
Though hills are clothed in snowy white;
And - ice binds rivers' in its might;
And trees have lost their leaf:
Make up for nature's flowerless dress,
With love and friendship's sweet caress:
And fly from care and grief.
Kind nature gave the love of fun,
That we a happy race may run
O'er life's uneven way;
And Now Year's day is set apart,
To swell the fountains of the heart,
With frolic, joy and play.
The hoary mists come down in frost,
As silver on the locks emboss'd,
And whiten twig and bough;
But warm young hearts can melt them
As down the icy crystals fall, '
While beauty wreaths the brow
The youths liave had their Christmas
While plump Kris Kinkle held hiscourt
Around the chimney fire.
The well filled stockings spoke the
Of this imperial prince of I've;
Whose gifts the young admire.
But this the day that larger boys,
And larger girls seek larger joys,
Than this rich fairy brings :
For musics tones mays round them sway,
And heavenly lyres within therceplay
Their hearts the fiddle strings.
The beau may find a belle to ring;
The belle a beau to pin or fling;
AB wayward timeles glide :
The beau may fi id responsive chime;
The belle a beau, through coming time,
To fasten to her side.
Now who,on time's fast fluttering wings,
Shall be tho tender music strings,
And who the rosined bow?
Don't let your spirits tuneless pine,
That Carolina's turpentine
Cuuld never make them flow.
Your unstrung souls, van, into tone,
Be never harmonized alone;
But must to discord run :
Unless somo seraph from the skies
Shall magnetize two pairs of eyes
And tuno them into one.
This day a visit, called a pop,
Is duly paid by Mister
- To Miss Joinima Primp : •
He takes a seat, she gives a cake ;
He asks how long she's been awake;
Then goes to see Miss Gimp.
Bill Timpkins calls with twinkling eyes'
On his— , and asks are you, Lizo?
A. happy New Year's day?
A. doughnut give me and a buss,
And I will leave without more fuss,
To spend the Holiday.
Now friends, my bow:—I'll not pro-
My salutation and my song;
But doff my hat ping robe ;
While calling heaven's bounty down,
On all my patrons in the town—
With all who read "THE GLOBE."
"THE OLD WOMAN " —Once she was
"Mother," and it was "Mother. I'm
hungry," "Mother, mend my jacket,"
"Mother, put up my dinner," and
"Mother," with her loving hands,would
spread the bread and butter and stow
away the luncheon and sow on the great
pate!), her heart brimming with affec
tion for the imperious little curly-pate
that made her so many steps and near=
ly distracted her with his boisterous
Now she is the "old woman;" but
she did not think it would ever come
to that. She looked on through the
future years and saw her boy to man
hood-grown ; and he stood transfigur
ed in the light of her own beautiful love.
Never was there a more noble son than
he—honored of the world, and the
staff of hor declining years.
Ay, ho was her support even thee,
but she did not kuow it. She 110 , 701'
realized that it was her little boy that
gave her strength for daily toil—that
his slender form was all that upheld
her over the brink of a dark despair.
She only know how she loved the
and felt that amid the mists of age his
love would bear her gently through its
infirmities to the dark hall leading to
the life beyond.
But the son had forgotten the moth.
or's tender ministrations now. Adrift
from the moorings of home, he is cold,
selfish, heartless, and -Mother" has no
sacred meaning to tho prodigal. She
is "the old woman," wrinkled, grey,
lame, and blind.
Pity her, 0 grave, and dry those
tears that roll down her furrowed
cheeks! Have compassion on her sen
sitive heart, and offer it thy quiet rest,
that it may forget how much it longed
to be "doar mother" to the boy it nour
ished through a careless childhood, but
in return for all this wealth of tender
ness has oiltgiven back reproach.

What the South Needs.
[From the Now York Thum.]
The Tribune forcibly urges those
who would "revive the flagging ener
gies of the South, lighten her miseries
and restore her to vigor a,nd prosper
ity," to "take or send their money and
buy Southern lands." This advice is
wise and timely. What the South
needs is a revival of her business and
industry. She needs capital to pro
cure tools and implements for farming
—to pay for her labor in advance of
its harvest, to 'rebuild the dwellings
and restore the industry swept out of
existence by the war: and it is only
from the North, or from abroad, that
she can hope to got it.,
But it does not Neither for
eigners nor Northern capitalists will
send their money into Muthern States
for investment, either in lands, or in
anything else. And the reason is per
fectly obvious : they have not sufficient
confidence in the political, industrial,
and social future of the South to war
rant them in committing their capital
to its control. Mon will not put their
money int 4 any State or country, un
til they can form some reliable judg
ment of the usage to which it will be
subjected. They want to know the
general character and drift of the laws
which control it; the rate and kind of
taxation to which it will he subjected;
the security with which it will be sur.
rounded, and the facilities which will
be afforded for employing, changing,
or withdrawing it at pleasure. All
these things depend on the character
of the government which may be estab
lished. And until capitalists can form
some accurate and reliable opinion as
to the kind of governments which are
hereafter to exist in the Southern States,
and the degree of stable wisdom and
justice which may be expected froth
them, they will not put their property
under their control.
Just now the Southern-States seem
likely to pit -- e substantially under the
control of their negro population.
liven in States where the negroes have
not an absolute majority of the voters,
they have enough to decide the policy
of the State Governments, unless the
white voters unite against them. The
latter course would be very likely to
involve a conflict of races which would
throw society and all its interests into
chaos; and if it is not resorted to, the
substantial negro supremacy which
would follow is an experiment which
remains to bo tried. The loud 'and
confident predictions of politicians and
the press du not settle the question.
Capitalists who have money to invest
prefer to await the result of such an
experiment, which, be it remembered,
is as yet wholly untried in the practi
cal working of our democratic institu
No have States and communities
where a very large per cent. of the
governing people is made up of the ig
norant and inexperienced ; but we have
never yet made any trial of such an
experiment as is involved, in suddenly
giving three•fifths, one-half, - or even
one-third of the political power of any
State to a class of men just, released
from embruting, blinding, and degra
ding slavery, not only aliens in race,
but of that race which more than any
other on the earth is repugnant to
Anglo-Saxon sentiment and prejudide,
utterly without experience in civil of
fairs, unaccustomed even to cure for
themselves in the smallest matters of
daily life, and certain, for a long timo
to come, to be mere tools in the hands
of selfish, unscrupulous, and irrespon
sible politicians on ono side or the
This is an experiment yet to be
tried. It may work well. It may give
to liberty stronger guarantees, to prop
erty greater security, to labor a surer
reward, to enterprise greater stimulus,
and to the best interests of the State
and its people a safer development,
than any form of government which
which has been tried hitherto. The
Tribune believes that it will, So do
some of the great capitalists of New
England, of New York, and the West
—these of them who espouse these
theories of universal negro suffrage, to
be enforced upon the South by military
power, and who are sending political
missionaries into the Southern States
to organize the permanent establish:-
meat of governments bused upon thorn.
But even they do not send their money.
They do not invest in Southern lands
or Southern industries of any kind.
Strongly as they recommend such in
vestments to other people—earnestly
and justly as they invoke aid to the
Southern States through end' instru-
mentalities—they do not exhibit that
full faith in their own advice which ac
ting upon it would imply.
What the South needs—like all oth
er great continunities—first of all, and
as the condition sine qua non of all in
dustrial prosperity and all material de
velopment—is g settled Government,
in the practical working of which all
who live there, and all who think of
investing money there, and all whose
welfare in any way depends upon South,
ern prosperity, 6ball have a strong and
abiding confidence. The South has no
such Goverliments now. It has no
Governments which command the re•
spect and confidence of its own people.
It is trying very hard to got them, and
Congress is trying to help thorn. But
Congress has views and purposes in
its notion , with which the South not
only does not sympathize, but which
encounter its resolute and rooted hos•
tility ; and the result is a conflict of in
terest, of feeling, and of effort which
threatens to prevent for along time to
come, such action as the Tribune deems
essential to the relief and prosperity of
the Southern States,
TERMS $2,00 a year in advance.
Congress has assumed control of the
whole Southern question. It denied
and violently resisted, resented, and
defeated the authority which the Exe.
eutive attempted to assert and exer
cise over it. Rightly or wrongly, it
took into its own hands the whole busi
ness of dealing with the South—of

Presidential Parties--The Hama
Movement and its Tendencies,
[From The Wow York Mudd, (Independent)
In the revolutionary times all the
plans and combinations of parties and
politicians are as liable to bo changed
by passing events as is the grouping
of its various colored bits of broken
glass by a single shake of the Valeido
scope. Thus, for an illustration, we
see that the nomination of General
Hancock for the next Presideney on
the Washington platform, by the In
dependent National Johnson Conven
tion in the White House, has wrought
such a wonderful change among all
the political elements of the country
in their relations towards each other,
that we can hardly entertain a doubt
that it furnishes tho true 'pattern of
the coming Presidential contest.
In the first place, we have, in this
White House nomination, the with
drawal of Mr Johnson in favor of Gen.
_Hancock. This is a shrewd move of
Mr. Johnson. He says to the hopeful
Democracy, "You have, since the death
of my trtie friend, John Van Buren,
turned your backs upon me, as you
did upon honest John Tyler. You are
casting about among your old Copper
head leaders for a Presidential candi
date—among the Seymours, the Pen
dletons, the Vallandighams, and oth
ers of your old Chicago failures of that
stripe. These men have no faith in
me, Johnson, and I, Johnson, have
none in them. -I-propose - you a corn
-promise on General Hancock—a splen
did soldier, a gentleman and a scholar,
and a statesman withal, who possesses
more of the sterling qualities of Geo,
Washington than any man in the land
of the living What do you say ?" The
masses of the Democracy respond,
"Hancook is the ticket. Hancock is
g ood. We will rally under the stall
dard of Han Cock." . But the old hide
bound Copperhead leaders of the Ds
mocracy aro thrown upon.. their. beam
ends. "Are we," they ask,"to be ruled
by this man Johnson ? Is he, after all,
to dictate our nominations? Are we
to play second fiddle to Johnson 7"
They are puzzled and chapfalten. The
scepture is taken from their hands.
Mr. Johnson, with all his blundering
and all his foolishness in his manipula
tions of the Democracy, has hit the
nail upon the head in his ultimatum of
Hancock, and has shown himself, at
least on the main Issue, to be a wiser
man than John Tyler, though not
quite up to Tyler in other things.
But the Republican radical mana
gers are as sorely perplexed as the
Copperhead chiefs with this Johnson
ian bombshell. It,is a shrewd prescrip
tion. It goes to their bones like the
newly discovered Gettysburo- °
water, which, it is said, will straight
en out the worst case of bone rheuma
tism in six weeks. Hancock, how
ever, though he went through the fire
at Gettysburg, has no need of the Get
tysburg water. Ho is sound. He has
no bone rheumatism. The Radicals
know it, and they are afraid of him.
The pretend to be wonderfully taken
up with General Grant. "He is one of
us, and with us," they say; but all the
time they are planning and plotting
to shove him out and shelve him. But if
they shelve Grant and take up Chase,
where go the army and all the glory
of the war ? They go to Hancock. So
in nominating Hancock fur the Demo
eracy, Mr. Johnson nominates Grant
for the Republicans; and thus in this
single move on the ehessberd he blocks
the game of both the Copperhead and
radical leaders, appoints the candidate
on both sides, and shapes the fight for
The New York Republicans, under
the wing of Mr. Chase, are nowhere.
They aro fifty thousand short. Fenton
is demolished, Greeley is all at sea, and
as for Weed and Raymond, they have
gone over to the bushwhackers. They
scour, like Mosby or Cavajal, around
the edges of the battle, looking out for
the supply trains. We lit d feared that
with the death of rough Dean Rich
mond and the smooth and polished
John Van Buren, after the failure of
Raskin with Slocum, the New York
Democracy had run to seed. They
certainly did look very seedy a year
ago; but nigger suffrage has given
them a now start, and with Commo
dore or Land Admiral Vanderbilt,witl
his four railroads well in hand, like a
crack team on the Eighth avenue, and
with Peter the Great, known as lie
mark Sweeny, in the places of Rich
mond and Van Buren, New York
State and city, on a four mile stretch,
is as safe as Camden and Amboy—yea
safe as Jersey.
This brings us "swinging round the
circle" bank again to the White House
and Mr. Johnson. He is a lucky man,
thia Johnson,after all,if not a great man
The radicals have failed to impeach
him; the Copperheads have failed to
catch him, and he has headed off both
Copperheads and radicals. Is this a
small matter? Mr, Johnson has no
doubt had enough of the role of Jack
son and his "By the Eternal, I am in
the fight;" and in going back to the
Washington platform with Hancock,
ho heads off both radicals and Copper
heads. He has boon studying Tyler
and Fillmore, and their game be We
a waste of powder. He has taken a
pew departure. T.f it oaa't he Johnson,

ts.Uon. Henry j, Raymond, editor
of the New York Times, and Chairman
of the Committee on Resolutionsof the
Philadelphia 14th of August, 1866,
Convention, has published a letter
which he Bays :
The original call for the Philadel
phia Convention was drawn by Sena
tor Doolittle. I declined to sign it be
cause it opened the door for all per-
Bons then in favor oftho Union, even
for original secessionists, to join in the
Convention—drawing no distinction
between them and original Union men.
When the Domocratie members of Con
gress as such issued a card endorsing
the call, my view on the case. was con
firmed; and when the joint call of the
Democratic National Convention
and a body calling itself the Johnson
Central Committee was issued, invi
ting each Congressional district in the
United States to seed four delegates—
two of men who had voted for Mr.
Lincoln - and two who had voted against
him in 1864—it seemed certain that
the control of the Convention would
rest in the hands of men opposed to
the Union party.
I declined therefore, to be a candi
date for the Convention—and consented
finally to go into it only at the urgent
personal solicitation, and on the very
strong potitical representations of the
President and Secretary of State, I gave
them, as my reason for not wishing to
go, the certainty that ender the call
the convention would be in the hands
of men who in the South had been in
rebellion, and who in the North • had
opposed the war; that it would be hos
tile in temper and in principle to the
Union party, of which I was not only
a member, but in which I held an offi
cial position, and that I could not con
sent to net against its interests.
To this they replied that if the mem
bers of the Union party refused to take
part in the Convention, it would ne=
eesserily MII into hostile heath and he
used by the Democratic' party to en•
dorse its principles and aid its fortunes;
but . they were confident that if Repub
lican frieds of the Ad minitration would
go into the eenvention, they , could
guide its action and secure adoption
of National, Union_ and Republican
principles, as they had been af
firmed by the Baltimore Convention
of 1864, and curried out by President
Lincoln. President Johnson said he was
very anxious that the Convention should
not be left to insure to the benefit of the
Demoeratic party. fie knew that party
thoroughly; it had been disloyal to the
country while engaged in war,, and did
not enjoy or deserve the confidence of the
people. The Union party, which had
carried the country through the war, was
the party to restore the Union, now that
the war was over. Ile thought its lead
ers in Congress were going to extremes
and weae enteringupon apt/icy which
would prevent the effective extension
of the party to the Southern States,
and that a Convention of this sort,
which would demonstrate the readi
ness of Southern men to accept the
principles of the Union party, would
have a good effect on the party itself,
and lead to the adoption of more mo
derate counsels, and put an end to the
sectional character of political parties.
He said he wanted the Convention to
take precisely the ground which I had
taken in a speech made a few days be,
fore - in Congress on Restoration and the
Union Party, every word of which met
his approval; and be felt quite sure
that if I would go into the Convention
and write an address embracing those
views, it would be promptly and hear
tily endorsed by the Convention. -
These views were. strongly pressed by
the President and Air. Reward, in a con,
versation which lastedfar an hour. I ask
ed them if it was designed or desired
to lay the foundation for a new petit',
cal party, The President said certainly
not; the Union party, purified of the
extreme doctrines of its extreme men,
and adhering to the conservative eggs
stitutional ground it had always held,
was the party which ought to rule
the coon try;and restore the Union; and
if it would act wisely in this matter, it
could retain power and administer the
Government for twenty-five years to
come. I asked if it was desired that the
Vonvention should support or aid in any
way the success of the Democratic party
in the coming elections. The President
said, certainly not, as a party. All he
desired was that the Convention should
exert a strong moral influence _upon the
Union party, and induce the noreina
tion and election to Congress of' mod
erate men, who were for restoring the
Union on constitutional principles,and
who would admit Southern men into
Congress, provided they could' take
the oath required by law.. It was on
ly in cases where the Republioana
should nominate extreme Radicals that,.
he should desire the electien of Derrto .. -,
crats in their stead.
I told the President ti A m %told not

and that I would go into the conven
