Every nigger who wishes to make a fortune

The New England Carpet Bag Convention
of North Carolina resolved to prohibit tbe
use of the word "negro" in the minutes of
their legislation, and to exclude from the

How long ought the infamous scoundrels to

"Outside the Constitution."
Some reverend defender of Thad. Ste
vens having denied that he ever asserted
that the Republican party was proceeding
outside of the Constitution, a correspon
dent asks ns to assist him in supplying the
proof. Mr. Stevens has again and again
made this statement in one form or an
other ; bat we suppose one clear instance
to be as conclusive as half a score. We
refer our correspondent to a letter written
by Stevens, to Colonel Samuel Shock, da
ted August 26, 1867, published in the
Lancaster Examiner and Herald ot Au
gust '67, and re-published. From that let
ter we transcribe the following decisive
passage :
Some of the members of the Senate
seemed to doubt their power under the
Constitution which ihey had just rep>idia- j
led, and wholly outside of which we will a- >
yree we are acting ; else our whole work ofj
reconstruction was usurpation.
Mr Stevens differs from his brother!

the impudence, to confess what they make !

" Tlirow Conscience to the Devil."
In tho House of Representatives, Wash
ington, on the 18th, in discussing impeach
ment matters :
Mr Ross—l ask the gentlemen from
Pennsylvania whether, iu his opinion, Sen
ators would be justified in perjuring them
selves for ihe purpose of procuring a con
viction of the President ?
Mr. Stevens —Well, sir, Ido not think
it would huit them.
Perjury will not hurt a roan in Thad.
Stevens' estimation. The early political
history of Stevens is associated with "throw
ing conscience to the devil, " and jumping
out of the back window at the Capital of
Pennsylvania, in the buck sboi war. His
decline into Abrani's bosom, is marked by
his reckless contempt of an oath taken up
on the Bible, and the encouragement of
others, to commit peijury. And yet,
preachers and professors tell us he is a
good man !
We published in our issue of April 29th,
a copy of the Registry Law, passed at the
late session of the Legislature. This
Know-Nothing gag should be thoroughly
studied by every Democrat, so that he and
his friends may not suffer disfranchise
ment under it. File it away for reference.
We ask the people to note
1. That nnder this law odious dis
ci imination is made against foreign born
citizens. Germans, Englisnmen, Irishmen,
Scotchmen, who have hitherto voted the
" Republican " ticket, behold how your
party strikes at your citizenship ! Is such
a party favorable to equal rights f
2. That it puts every citizen who
would exercise the right of suffrage to
much trouble and vexation, in attendance
upon the meeting of the board of registra
tion, making proof of his right to vote, etc.
3. That it changes the hour of closing
the polls from seven to six o'clock ; thus
aiming to disfranchise the laboring classes
4. That it entails an additional ex
pense of thousand of dollars upon the tax
payers, for extra services on the part of
assessors and election officers.
5. That it is in direct conflict with the
Constitution of Pennyslvania, which de
fines the qualification of a voter as follows:
"Ih elections by the citizens, every
white person of the age of twenty one
years, having resided in the State one year,
and in the election district where he offers
to vote ten days immediately preceding
such election, and within two years paid a
State or county tax, who shall have been
assessed at least ten days before tbe elec
tion, shall enjoy the right of an elector."

The Republican Candidate for Preaidex
Jf a backwoodsman should insist on us
ing an axe to cut his crop of grain, instead
of a sickle, because the axe had rendered
good service in felling the forest that stood
upon the same ground tbe preceding year
nobody would be apt to think well of his
judgment in the selection ofa utensil. As
we are not to have a war, there is less
fitness in the selection of a general, than of
a statesman, as a candidate for President
General Grant has been nominated 6olely
in consequence of his military reputation.
Waiving, for tbe present, the fundamental
objection that the instrument is not adapt
ed to the proposed use, and that the Pres
idency, during the next term, will afford
no scope for the exertion of military tal
ents, we challenge inquiry into the grounds
of General Grant's fame as a soldier. We
suppose none of his friends will seriously
maintain that ho is entitled to be called a
great general merely because he has com
manded great Armies, much less because hf|
has exposed and lost great multitudes of
men. His reputation rests upon tbe fact
that all his campaigns have been success
ful. But success against such adversaries
as Pillow or Perabcrtou in the West is no
very signal proof of abilities, unless tbey
commanded greater forces ; which they
did not. General Lee was a more worthy
antagonist; but General Lee was not con
qnorcd by fighting him, but by exhausting
his resources, lie stood on the defensive
for nearly a year after Grant assumed com
mand in the East, although the Confedera
cy was eveu then, when Grant crossed the
liapidan, totteriDg and well-nigh spent by
three years' exertion in a strenuous and
unequal struggle. It is certainly just to
credit Grant with the capture of Lee ; but
there is a debit as well as a credit side to
tbe account. What Gen. Scott called "the
economy of life by means of head-work,''
will be sought for in vain in the cam
paigns of General Grant. His successes
have been won by a prodigal expenditure
of his soldiers. In his last and greatest
campaign be pitted an enormous army
against a small one, and sacrificed twice as
many men as General Lee had under his
commanJ. It is not justice but adulation,
to praise him as if lie had conquered an
army as large as his ow . It is not justice
but an affront fo humanity to give him as
much credit as if he bad achieved tbe
same result without such wholesale sacri
fices of men. The following is an authen
tic statement of tho respective forces and
losses of Generals Grant and Lee between
the liapidan and the James :
Grant on assuming command May 4,
1864, had off effective men besides the
reserve, when he crossed tho Rapidan,
Lec at the same date had an effective
force of 52,000.
Grant's reinforcements up to the battle
of ColJ Harbor, June 3, were 97,000.
Lee's reinforcements, up to the same
date, were 18,000.
Grant's total force, including reinforce
ments. was 222,000.
Lee's total force, including reinforce
ments, was 70,000.
Keturns to their respective Governments
showed that when both armies had reacb
the James, June 10, the number of Grant's
armv that had been put hors du combat
was" 118,000.
Up to the same date, the number of
Lee's men who had been put hort du com
bat was 19,000.
The two armies then met in fron* of
We have been at some pains to ascertain
and verify these figures, and we vouch for
their substantial accuracy. We shall take
good care that they do not escape the no
tice, nor slip the recollection of the coun
try. We cheerfully concede to General
Grant the merit of success ; but it ia right
that the country should know the terrible
cost at which that success was purchased.
The truest test of mililary genius is the
accomplishment of great results with slen
der means. We can recall no instance
(unless Grant be an instance) of a general
who established his title to be called great,
otherwise than by succeeding against
great disadvantages —either superior num
bers, or consummate abilities in tbe com
manders opposed to him, or formidable
physical obstacles. A man does not prove
that he possesses a grant's strength by
overmastering an invalid or a cripple, A
general does not establrsh his title to be
considered great by subduiug an army
one third as large as his own, and losing
five of his own men for every one that be
disables of the enemy.
We have had some experience before of
running successful generals as candidates
for the Presidency ; but their achievements
were, in this particular, a great contrast to
those of General Grant. General Jackson
won his brilliant victory at New Orleans
with 7,000 men against a British army of
12,000. General Taylor had but about
0,000 men at Buena Vista, and the Mexi
cans twice or thrice that number. Gen.
Scott had 8,500 at Cerro Gordo, the Mexi
cans 11,000. The splendid victory of Con
treras was achieved by Scott with 4,500,
against 12,000 Mexicans. General Scott
in bis report to the Secretary ot War,
speaking of the battles in front of Mexico
said, "And I assert, upon accumulated and
unquestionable evidence, that in not one
of these conflicts was this army opposed
by fewer than three-and-a-half times its
numbers —in several of tbem, by a yet
greater excess." If it be said that Grant
had disadvantages of ground and position
to encounter in advancing through an ene
my's country, tbe same is equally true of
Scott, who nevertheless with greatly infe
rior numbers advanced rapidly from tri
umph to triumph, while Grant, operating
with superior numbers against a nearly ex
hausted foe, required a whole year to cap
ture Richm ~J, which finally succumbed
to exhaustion rather than to military
genius.— N. Y. World.
It is telegraphed from Washington that
A. T. Stewart, the merchant prince of
New York, who inangarated the move
ment for Grant's nomination for President,
is now counselling him in view of late
events, to decline becoming a candidate,
or if nominated to refuse the nomination.

successful competitor for the prize of a

The Cart Before the Horee,
The Radicals have Dominated Geoeral
Grant for President, and Hon. Schuyler
Colfax for Vice President We think it
one of the most perfect illustrations of
placing the cart before the horse, that we
ever saw.
As it is not our intention to conduct the
coming canvass on the Republican rule of
slang and virtuperation, we propose to ad
mit that both of these men would be good
men m their proper places. We are not
disposed at present to discuss the merits
and demerits of Gen. Grant as a military
man, but now simply ask the people to re
member and publish one word of statesman
ship he has ever nttered. Does his biog
rapher—his own father—even claim that
he has ever uttered a word on any legisla
tive question that has ever agitated the
minds of the people of this or any other
country ?
When it is remembered that he was ed
ucated at the expense of the people at the
West Point Military Academy, where
mathematics must be a prominent study, it
should not bo very surprising that, as a
General of an army, he should solve the
problem that whereas, the twenty millions
of people of the Noiili could stand a larg
er draft than the eight millions of the
South, therefore, the chances being equal
for death on each side in battle, he would
"tight it out on this line
But it strikes us that even this mat Ik
matical and philosophical discovery does
not qualify him for the Presidency. As
he has never yet publicly endorsed a single
plauk <n the ''Radical platform," we await
patiently the agonizing delay of his re
sponse to the committee who will inform
him of his nomination, and the platform
upon which he will be expected to stana
until the party see fit to alter the same and
then he will be expected to step upon ev
ery new plank inserted or stand an im
peachment trial.
liut the most ludicrous appearance of
this nomination is the placing of the man
who claims no statesmanship by education
or experience, on the ticket ahead of Mr.
Collax. We should as soon think of plac
ing him in the Navy at the head of Ad
miral Farragut or Porter. We think he
would "uuderstand the ropes" in the Navy
full better than he would in the Executive
But another thing in this nomination is
also very strange. We know that the lie
publicans have sworn by all the bones of
the prophets that they would never again
vote for a democrat, and yet, to show the
consistency of this party, we republish a
speech of Gen. Grant :
"I am a Democrat, every man in my
regiment is a Democrat, and when I shall
be convinced lhat this war has for its ob
ject any other than what 1 have mentioned
or the Government designs using its sol
diers to execute the purposes of the aboli
tionists, I pledge you my honor as a sol
dier that I will carry my sword on the
other side and cast my lot with that peo

How the Unctiously Pious Mr. Harlan
"Saved" a Senator.
Here is another specimen of the various
methods of coercion employed to fix the
votes of Republican Senators. Senator Hir~
lan, himself a Methodist, telegraphed to Bi-h

Willey t lost." To which Bishop Simpson
replied : "Brother Willey professes to be a
Christian. Brother Willey has a soul to be
saved. He cannot barter away hia soul and
imperil the country, Pray with Brother
Willey." Whereupon Brother Harlan fray
ed with Brother Willey, and Brother Willey
was saved.

crats don't mind the expense, however—
the bondholders pay no taxes, and the na
tional bankers get twenty-five million dol
