Towanda, Thursday, August 10, 1865.
We hold that there is no need df haste in
this work of re-organizing the rebel States.
Time will teach the government and the
people what is needed. As yet, neither
hardly knows how much or how little is to
be done to restore these States to their
places in the Union ; but above till things
it behoves us to be cautious in placing full
political power into the hands of our late
enemies. They are in the condition of con
-1 qnered rebels. Their only submission is
• such as military power has forced on them,
' and is it to be supposed that the notions
which pioinpted this undertaking have un
, dergone any changes? They express them
selves badly wlupped, but they are as em
f piratic i i declaring that they were right ;
. and will they not, in making their political
organizations for the future, carry this prin
cipal of right, for which they staked all,
! ' with them, in the hope of succeeding with
I | it in some other way, at some other time ?
1 ; They will be the strangest people the world
I has yet produced, if they, all at once, abau
j don the ideas to which they were schooled,
I I which they cherished, and for which they
t . j fought so lustily, and risked every thing.
I And what is the great leading conviction
1 of these southern people ? Why, that sla
very is right, that it is necessary to their
social comfort, that it is essential to their
individual prosperity, and that their polit
ical organizations cannot bo perfect witli
_ out it. They believe this now, as much as
they did before the war, and it will influ-
their action in time to come, as it has
vj in the past. There can lie no doubt of this.
; And indications of this kind are mauifest
{' I ing themselves throughout all the rebel
! States. In Louisiana the validity of the
" | ratification of the Constitutional Ainend
■ ments, is called in question, as it is in Tenn
v ' essee ; and the Emancipation Proclamation
• of President Lincoln is regarded by many
.. |asof no binding force. In Tennessee a law
ii | has already been passed imposing disabil
e j ities upon colored people, and the opposi
" lion there to the State franch so law, all
| point to the pvevading sentiment which has
" I be -n ever uppermost in the slave States.
, The Ciueinnatti Gazette of a recent date,
published a letter written in Nashville,
which contains the following :
I was conversing with one of these gentlemen
1 ' Yesterday, a resident of Maury county, and an in
r i iiui iitiiil citizen there, i asked him if he was will
, ihg to tell tin- frankly what he thought of the fu
ture of slavery in Tennessee?
' " Certainly," he replied, "I have no concealment
l to in ike upou that or any other public question."
" Do you believe there is any possible prospect
■ for its restoi-atiou in this State?" I inquired.
•• That," said he, "is still an open question. 1
~ > consider it no more settled that we shall not again
lm\\- slavery in Tennessee, than it is whether the
i institution shall be abolished in Kentucky."
•'ls there any considerable number of the peo
-1 pic who would favor such a restoration ?"
j "A large majority would, if oil tcere IIIIOICHI toex
! iii'< .vs iiii'tiistlvcsf."
1 i '• Would you ?"
I , •• Unquestionably I would."
i, | --Rut as your Amended Constitution forever pro
-1 liibits it, why is not the question settled?"
! •• Why," s.iid he, " even a legal Constitution is
r j not a finality ; and of course you are aware that
( many of us regard the March amendment to the
' - Constitution of Tennessee as utterly illegal and
I void. Were it not for the presence of military
e 1 force, the matter would have been brought ere this
; lit fore the Courts, and 1 doiilit not their decision
j would have confirmed our opinion."
~ ; •' But," said I, "even if the courts should decide
( as you say. would it not be impossible to restore
I the institution, on account of the resistance which
II | the blacks would everywhere make of it ?"
•'Of eoursi," he replied, "we could not rein
j state our authority immediately over the whole of !
them perhaps not over one-half of them. Rut ;
-t | there are many sections of the State where the
n j blacks are not aware that slavery lues been abol
i ished at alb Some of these sections arc in West
! Tennessee, where the colored population is most
J ! numerous. In other quarters there are many fam
/ j ilies whieli the blacks have never attempted to
| leave, and where the quiet resumption of the mas
'• i tcr's authority would be at once acquiesced in.
| Gradually all resistance would cease, and the eol
j oreil people, in many cases disgusted with their
'* new-found freedom, so different from what thcy
1- had anticipated, would voluntarily return to bon
(l dage, or accept as destiny what they could easily
be jiursuadea was What it rc/nirei! <t
! yreat army In ileslrot/, can easily be restored by the
pinjile trin u that army is removed.''
n Evidences of this kind are multiplying in
ie every quarter, and our chief objection to the
I I'resident's re-construction measures arise
! from this. We cannot see how these ef
- forts to restore slavery are to be success
fully counteracted under his plan. For
I every measure which he projects will lie
resisted on the ground that the President
has no right to interfere with the local af
( fairs of the States. Under Beverly Jnhns
.o ton's rendering every rebel can take the
prescribed oath of fidelity to the Constitu-
i t i tion. The rankest rebels, and those who
y give tone and character to southern so-
I ciety, will be the foremost to take it in or
- der that they may vote, and have influence
II in the re-organization of their respective
States, and all the common, and plain peu
pie will follow their lead. Tlnye will bono
e ; " incorrigible rebels" to resist, for by the
imlh all will be loyal. So that it comes to
'• this, that the rebels themselves, under the
Proclamations of the President, are author
ized to organize their State governments,
ami they will be nothing more, and nothing
less than the rebel governments which we
have been fighting lor tour years to over
throw. only that they will not be in armed
Whereas, if the people of these States
1 were told to exercise their inherent rights
of self-government, which is regulated by
- existing laws, and call State governments
into being in their usual mode, thus giving
vitality to their statutes, and civil protec
' tion to their citizens, the federal authorities
would then avoid the perplexing issues
which must grow up under the exercise of
doubtful powers ; and after being thus or
ganized, the rebel States could be told that 1
they must make application to Congress to
be restored to their place in the Union.—
Congress having the unquestionable power,
could admit them on the condition only that
slavery should never again exist within j
their respective borders, in any form. This
is the only way that seems ipen to us to f
, prevent surely and certainly there-enslaver I
mi nt of the blacks j and from convictions
I of duty we earnestly urge this view of the
, question upon the administration.

roe letter of the 30th uIL says :
Jeff. Davis was again on the ramparts of

five o'clock. He was attended by Major
General Miles and the officer of the guard
on duty for the day. Day before yesterday
(Friday) he was not out, General Miles
being absent at Cherrystone on that day.
The General is too solicitous for the safety
of his important prisoner to permit him
outside of his well-guarded casemate, ex

promulgated by certain misinformed daily '
papers, caused an inquiry from the War
Department as to the real state of the pris
