The Slass Meeting. -
The great Mass Meeting held in this place
on Saturday last, did not accomplish the ob-
jrct for wh.iv.-h it assembled, it we under
hand concert of actioo, peace and harmony.
The meeting was called br the Commii8
eioners of the Coonty for the purpose of ta
king s.ction en a proposition contained in
the toijawinji resolution, wljicb passed at a
meeting held m this place on the 16ih nil :
That the Commissioners of this county be
requested to offer a bounty of twenty -five,
dollars to be paid out of the County Treas
ury to each and every person enlisting in
the http Company, ta be raised in this coon
ty, under the late requisition, and that a
committee of three be appointed to wait
vpon the Commissioners for this purpose."
Thus it will be seen that the meeting was
called for the purpose of taking into con
fiderst'.ioo the raiding or paying of a bounty
to Ins nev lompmy under the first call. - But
it s" happened that two companies were
raised on that cull; whether they have both
been accepted on the first call, we are un
informed, tut 'think not. This being the
f-tae of affairs, bosh companies looked for !
and claimed a boorrty, more particularly on I
accent of its hav.ng been promised them, j
in u:n goon laun, ana tney Having enlisted
with that understanding. When the Com
iniiorjers gae their attention to more
'thin ore company, they placed themselves
i i such a condition that- they were in ail
justice obliged tj recognize every volunteer,
who has left t!il county, as equally entitled
to a bounty. As we said- before th real
object of the meeting was to agree upon
fotne bounty for the new cnmpiny which was
about being formed when the above reso
lution was adopted. Had this meeting been
confined to the re 'I object, tbe result would
bavf! teen different, and all passed off with
mnrf harmony and concert of action. The
proposition made by the Commissioners,
whea we take into consideration the pay
ing of all the volunieers Irom this county an !
equal sum oo of the bounty, was, in its
:rnoant, (55;CC0) entirely too small, accord- !
ing to our judgment. -There are, to e'ay,
about 670 volunteers in the army from this
county; and another company forming,
wr 'rch wifl soon be ready io leave. We
havi' uo dfsobtbut what the Commissioners

which they stood ready to appropriate it. -As

As to the Republican p.irty whether they j

j pers says, "upon an offer being made to
the President, by two Abolition United
; States Senators, of I wo tie'ro regiments on
Monday, he flallyand unequivocally refused
to receive them. The Pres 'dent did nol ap-

It is ihe bonnden duty of every man lo
'discourage lawlessness of every kind.
When we see mobs in our streets, we bein
to apprehend the danger which may pio
ceed from disrespect to law. When we
theorize abont the country am! the govern
ment, we do not appreciate the persona!
relations which every man and every fam
ily sustains to the Constitution and the
staiues which are under it, the law of the
land. Nor when mobs act in great excite
ments in favor of the views which rash
men may entertain, do they often forsee
the time which may come as the very con
sequence of lhat lawlessness, when mobs
may make havoc of their own interests.
There are not a few who in ..reasonina
about the Constitution and the laws adopi
the theory that a great wrong, like the
Southern rebellion, justifies an abandon
ment of Constitution and law for its sap
pression. The theory is plausible, and it
leads some men to the extent of calling any
man a traitor who pleads the Constitution
as a reason against any efforts or measures
lo put down gigantic evil. But the same 1
Irom the employment ol negroes, as from
the ondrct of negroes and their political
friends. Thus (ar we see no evidence that
ihey have been in any instance instigated
by special political intrigue or management,
but they have apparently growu out of the
fact that a portion of the colored population
hol.l their hoads much higher than hereto
fore, and claim not only equality but some
times a degree of superiori y which lead
to unpleasant feeling and colli.-ons In
fact, the colored men elbow their way with
considerab l ronahness toward the equality
which is claimed for them by noisy politi
cians. The mehoJa ol avoiding these collisions
in the future are two. In the first place,
the laws mnst be carefully and thoroughly
administered. The black man, as the de
pendent race, entitled to protection, mui
be protected against every tyranny of indi
viduals, and especially against the mob
spirit which grows out of radicalism In
the second place, the friends of the black
man should avoid all encouragement to
ward the idea of equality. and should epec
ially inculcate the doctrine of the old West
minister Cah-chism, once the favoriie doc
New England, which councelled
the pre-ervation ol the "places and relarons
belonging to all men as superiors inferior
and equals." It is no kindness to the col
ored race :o teach ihem the doctrnes of
vtrscs Livinz monuments.
