The American Bastile Prisoners.
UNION PACIFIC HOTEL,
New Yoik, Oct. 30, 1867, J
TO THE EDITOK OF TUB WORLD.
SIB:—I have read with great pleasure
your DOtice of the proposed convention of
" Prisoners of State," in your columns of
yesterday, under title " The Bastile Busi
ness*" You snppose that the convention
will entertain "the purpose of concocting
some measure of redress, and drawing np
a catalogue of' loyal' outrages to be pub
lished in f„rm of solemn manifesto to the
world." Yon are quite right as far as your
jecture has led you. As a victim of the
late despotism, and since the suggestion
touching the convention originated with
myself, I entreat a small space that I may
i intimate briefly what are some of the pur
-1 poses which, in my judgment, should en
gage the earnest attention of all those who
have suffered outrage at the behest of ar
bitrary power. Redress , in the ordinary
acceptation, very few, if any of us, seek for
or expect. We have borne long enough
j the load of obloquy which the myrmidons
, of a most despotic power have heaped up
on us, while we were languishing in filthy
and disgusting casemates and could not be
heard one word in our defence against any
kind of accusation which it suited the pur
poses of our enemies to make. Some of
us have only recently learned who our ac
j cusers were, and what were their motives
; and what their rewords. Some of as are
regarded with more or less suspicion as
though we have been expected to speak
long since and say that " We are innocent."
Some of us are free to say, "We did that
j whereof we are accused, but in that we did
no wrong , but, on the contrary, we did that
; which every good citizen should do." All
' of us are willing to declare the reasons for
1 our actions which our consciences will ap
prove, and then to accept the judgment of
bor.est men, whether we have merited onr
j sufferings. All of us have opinion t in re
| gard to the momentous questions of the
i hour, which, we think, have been well ap
proved by late experience in the result of
the indulgence of usurpation. We would
declare those opinions and ask our fellow
citizens to consider them well. All of us
have loved our several States, and our
whole country —its institutions, and espe
cially, its once grand and beautiful nation
alism—and now, more than ever„if it were
i possible, when her supreme peril comes
i nearer and nearer by each passing day, we
love our country, and would band together
to save it, though the old Bastile gates
should open to us again.
We would hold up to the scorn of indig
nant humanity certain individuals who have
: since the accession of the late Abraham
Lincoln, through their usurpation, wielded
agaiwst the defenceless the most terrible
energies of arbitrary, absolute power, and
! would consign them to the ir.famy they
have earned. We would not be moved by
any spirit of revenge or malice, but will
ever respect the behests of justice, and if
we shall bring to light some dark and dam
i ning deeds of the oppressors of a confiding
] people—some atrocities, the announcement
| of which will sufluse every manly cheek
| with tbe blush of shame, men will learn
that even in our day men in high places
are capable of crimes which find no paral
| lei ID the black records of infamy ! We
; have the jrroofs! Il we shall make plain
to the American people what are the pur
poses of the regnant despotism of to-day.
which we propose to do, we shall do our
country some good service at last. In fine,
! we ask justice, and shall pursue justice un
til we shall stand in the opinions ol honest
; men acquitted of all wrong, and more than
, that, justified in that we have done and de
sired (or our couutry in her first great
P. C. WRIGHT,
NEGRO OUTRAGES—The papers from
all parts of the country are full oi the most
revolting outrages upon women and chil
dren by negroes. A brutal, sensual race,
and within the first year of the agitation of
the question of their right to suffrage, we
find them rioting in licentious violence.—
We fear that the white people will become
so incensed, if these abominable crimes are
much more increased, that they will excite
a most terrible vengeance on such atrocity.
The pronounced friends of this people must
bend their highest energies to correct these
practices, and so train them that their li
centiousness 6ball be repressed—not left to
run r. t.
Shall the Southern Negroes Rule North
ern White Men P
If the negroes are admitted to the suf
frage in the Southern States the State
Governments will be as completely under
their control as if they formed the whole
population. Acting with the Republican
party, thy will in every State forin its
majority ; they can dictate all its meas
ures and its nominations. They can de
termine in every instance who shall be
Governor and what laws shall be passed
by the State Legislature. Nor is this all.
They can not only govern those ten States,
but can control every federal election and
govern the country. The States which
they will control, hold the balance "be
tween the two great parties, and can turn
the scale in favor of whichever the negroes
prefer Supposing a Presidential election
to be held now, and taking the resnlt of
the Ust State elections as the criterion of
the strength of parties, the contest would
be very close. The following are the
Democratic States and the number of
their electorial votes •
Connecticut 6 New Jersey 7
Cal.fornia 5 New York 33
Kentucky 8 Ohio 21
Maryland 5 j Pennsylvania 26
The number of electoral votes counted
in the last Presidential election was 221.
Of these 113 is a majority of five ; so that
supposing only the same States to vote as
in 1864, the Democrats would elect the
President without any further gains. We
shall doubtless gain Maine, Illinois, Indi
ana, and some other Northern States, and
onr popular vote, including those who
vote with us in the Southern States, will
make us a majority of all the adult male
inhabitants white and black. And yet it
might happen that, after gaining the States
named, we should lose the election by the
complete control exerted by tbe negroes
over the reconstructed States. Those
States, including Tennessee, will have 77
electoral votes, and if they are all brought
under the control of the negroes, toey
may turn the scale and elect the next
President. With Maine, Indiana, and Il
linois voting with the Democrats, we
should be beaten bv a majority of two.—
If, besides those States, we can gain Ore
gon, we shall still have a majority iu spite
of the negro 70te.
This survey will explain why the Re
pnblicans arc so stiff ar.d obstinate in ad
heri n£ to their negro suffrage reconstruc
tion scheme. There is no possibility of
their carrying tbe Presidential election if
they abandon it. If they give up that,
tbey are the same as beaten already, even
if they kecqrout the excluded States and
prevent them from reinforcing the Demo
cratic party. The Republicans have lost
so much that a mere policy of exclusion
cannot save them. They must reorganize
those States ui.der negro control, or their
party is undone. It is for this reason
that they turn a deaf ear to all moderate
counsels, to all proffers of compromise,
and refuse to give up their reconstruction
l scheme notwithstanding its condemnation
by the people. The North will therefore
be called to decide whether the Southern
negroes shall govern the country. The
Democratic party must gain enough to
overbalance the Republican gains in tbe
South ; which can easily be done as soon
as the people come to see that the real is
sue is whether the white or black race
shall rule the country.— World.
Negro Tyranny in the South--000 Fami
lies Compelled to Desert their Homes
and come North.
Iliinnicutt and the villains who support
him are doing a terrible work among the
negro population in Virginia and North
Carolina. The negroes are all armed or
i arming, and are already beginning to
! threaten the white population and ' coerce
; them into giving up their property. It
may be a-matter of indignant surprise to
our citizens to know that at least six hun
dred white families have been compelled
to abandon their homes and tiy for their
: lives, within the week last past. About
j ha'f a dozen of these families arc in this
i city, and are searching for some quiet
■ nook in which they may dwell in peace
and safety. Many, if not most of these
families, were in straightened circumstan
i ces, resulting from the war at home, and
j now that they have been expatriated by
I the insolence and power of heathen Afri
can, they are destitute. But they ask no
chaiity. They are determined to fight
out their own battle, and look to the peo
ple of the North for help and for justice
against the brutes who terrorize, oppress,
and defraud them. It is believed that a
majority of these families w ill make our
city a refuge. Can Northern white free
men brook these outrages ?— Phil, Herald
Will we Suffer it to be Done P
The Senate of Pennsylvania will at the
meeting of the Legislature in January next,
be composed of 19 Radicals and 14 Demo
crats, and at the session of 1869, 17 Radi
cals and 16 Demofrats, for we will beyond
doubt, gain two Senators at the next elec
tion, one from Luz ?rne, and another in the
Adams and Franklin district.
The Radicals understand all this per
fectly well, and will throw out the two
! newly elected Senators, M'lntire and Shu-
I gart, from the District composed of the
connties of Blair, Huntingdon, Mifflin, Ju
niata, Centre and Perry, on some pretext
or other, unless the Demociats are prepar
ed to prevent, such an outrage. Three
years ago this same district elected two
Democrats, but they were counted out, no
toriously by fraudulent soldier votes sub
Only two years ago, Franklin and Ad
ams, elected a Democratic Senator, but he
was at once thrown out by the Senate, for
the reason that alleged deserters had voted
for him, and this will most likely be the os
tensible reason given for turning out M,ln
tire and Shugart. Can such a wrong be
repeated with impunity?
In 183 Stevens and his party, after the
defeat of Governor Ritnrr, openly pro
claimed their deteimination to " treat the
election as though it never had been held,"
and unquestionably would have done so,
had not thousands of Democrats assem
bled at Harisburg at the meeting of the
Legislature, inconvenient as it was then
to travel, compared to what it now is, and
drove the conspirators out of the back win
dows of the Capitol.
We do not counsel violence, and we
earnestly hope there will be no occasion
for any, but we do say tbat we bavc had
quite enough, and more than enough, of
this thing of keeping out and turning out
duly elected representatives of the people.
Let our friends in the Legislature, and
everywhere , say that the day has passed
when such wrongs will be tolerated. We
say so with emphasis.— Columbian.
The Opinion of a Soldier.
General SHERMAN'S speech at the reun
ion of the officers of the Army of the Tenn
essee, in St. Louis, on the 13th instant,
contained, after a rehearsal of the achieve
ments of that army during the war, an ap
peal to the good seme of his countrymen,
North and South, which is full of soldierly
magnanimity and fervor. If .slavery is held
to be the real cause of our civil war, then
General SHERMAN, himself boirt of New
England parents, "honestly believes that
the people of New Englang in common
with all the great north who shared in the
original cause and enjoyed a large part of
the profits resulting from cotton and slave
labor, should be charitable and liberal in
the final distribution of the natural penal
ties." He proceeds:
"If children must inherit the sins of
their fathers, even in the third and fourth
generations, then none of us who trace our
origin back to the earlier days of this re
public can escape this mathematical and
philosophical conclusion ;or in the lan
guage of Dr. Draper : "Guilty, then, both
of us in the sight of God, let us not vex
each other with mutual crimination, but
bear our punishment with humility."
llow has this punishment been partitioned
by the results of the war? We of the
north have to mourn the loss of fathers,
brothers, sons and friends, and arc "bur
dened with a vast national debt binding on
us in fact, in law and in honor, never I
hope, to be questioned by any honorable
man iu America till every cent is paid,—
Look to the South, and you who went
with me through that land can best say
if they, too, havn't beeu fearfully punished.
Mourning in every household desolation
written in broad characters across the
whole face of their country, cities in ashes
and fields laid waste, their commerce gone,
their system of labor annihilated and de
stroyed. Ruin, poverty, and distress every
where and now pestilence adding the very
cap-fcheaf to their stock of misery ; her
proud men begging for pardon and appeal
ing for permission to raise food for their
children ; her five millions of slaves free,
and their value lost to their former mas
With our population increasing thirty
three per cent,-every ten years ; with our
national wealth developing in even a great
er ratio ; with our frontiers pushing hack
in every direction ; with farms and villages
and cities rapidly covering our vast na
tional domain ; with mines of gohl and
silver and iron and coal pouting out wealth
faster than ever did the cotton fields of
the South, with forty thousand miles of
finished railroads, and other thousands iu
progress—can any one doubt our present
strength, or calculate our future destiny ?
If our friends at the South will heartily
and cheerfully join with us in this future
course, I for one would welcome them
back, our equals, but not our superiors,
and lend them a helping hand."
When men like General Sherman take
issue in this wise with the confiscation and
destructive policy just reiterated more
venomously than ever by Thaddeus Ste
vens, we may hope on that the real 'Grand
Army of the Republic"—soldiers who
fought in the war and do not bluster in
time of peace, are in no danger of becom
ing Radical enthusiasts. $
NEGRO REBEI I ION. —A negro in Rich
mond, Virginia, sav9 he will make the
streets of thai cty "run knee deep with
blood" ifany white man there dares to
deny him the means of supporting himself
and fami|v by work. This means that the
negro will have employment, at living
wages not only in the South, but in the
North at the cost of the blood of white
men, and the bread that is necessary to
keep white men and women, and children
from starving. In other words, he will
live if he has to kill white men in order to
thrust them out of employment* This is
the bclligerant watchword of the negro.—
Pass it along the line of the white ranks.
Pass it from Virginia to Pennsylvania,
and on from the remotest East to the re
motest West, and let the next election tell
who wins in this fight.
ITOW DOES IT STRIKE Yoc ?—Seeing
that the people of the Northern States,
from Conneticut to Kansas, repudiate ne
gro suffrage, how, asks the Boston Post
does it slrike fair minds, for a Congress
in which the North alone is represented,
to force negro suffrage and negro suprema,
cy upon the ten Southern States which are
refused representation ?
BRITISH TAXATION — A CONTRAST. —In
the better days of the Republic, before
Radical legislatiou had fastened its blasting
policy upon the country, we used to boast
of being the most lightly taxed people in
the world. It was a common thing in
those days to point to Great Britain as an
illustration of the evil effects of onerous
taxation. The contrast was one in which
our politicians delighted, because it served
to show how much superior we were as
political economists and legislators to our
British ancestors. How is it now, after
near seven years of Radical rule? The
aggregate wealth of Great Britain within
the British Isles is $36,000,000,000 ; that
of the United States is now estimated at
The rate of taxation in Great Britain is
ninety cents on the one hundred dollars ;
in the United States the rate of taxation
by the Federal Government is four hund
red cents on the one hundred dollars, or
more than four times that of Great Britaiu.
Hgr* Ben. Butler wants the Radical par
ty to abandon the principles, measures and
issues upon which it has been worsted and
defeated all around the circle. Greeley
won't hear to it. He says defeat rather
than dishonor —"stern justice" to the dar
ky or nothing. "Stern justice" to the
Rump would be a better issue, for it bad
ly needs chastisement for its conduct,
