A Siasiiitig Invietlve, •
The speech of Hon Montgomery Blair, ex-
Postmaster General, delivered at Clarks
ville, Aid., Aug. 26, (says the N. Y. Jour
nal of Commerce, repays a careful perusal.
He strikes out from the shoulder with pel -
feet recklessness, sometimes delivering hard
blows at members of the and some
times at other men with whom he was sup
posed to be in political accord. Secretary
Seward receives a of attention.
The same with Holt and Stanton. Hon.
Thad Strrcns fares no better than the rest.
Tue first mentioned is charged with “dal
liance'’ with the Confederates. Mr. Stanton
advised that “no resistance should be offer
ed to this police of dissolving tbe Union,”
and Mr. Seward's course,” wc are told,
“shows that he approved and adopted the
policy.” Again, Mr. Stanton, then Attorney
General, was “in full sympathy with the
leaders in Congress who dragged the South
into rebellion.” On other occasions “he was
most violent in denouncing’ any attempt to
maintain the Union by force.” Mr. Holt,
whilst Secretary of War, “refused to permit
Gen. Scott to reinforce Sumter,” and whilst
Postmaster General, Nov. 36, 18G0, wrote.a
letter “justifying tjie rebellion.” The motive
for these odious allusions is explained to bo
“to prove that the government of the Uuited
State#—the great tunctioaaries intrusted
with the Administration —are responsible for
the subjugation of the Southern people to
the usurpation of the conspirators who plot
ted secession in the halls of Congress and in
the caucuses they held in the .Capitol.” Mr.
Blair wishes to illustrate the true - spirit of
those who seek, iu the guise of pre-eminent
and transcendent emancipationists
to annihilate the States and destroy the Con
stitution, and that the South is to be divested
of its political rights “lor the crime ol not
being able to resist secession when enforced
by color of State authority, sanctioned and
acquiesced in by the National Government.”
Continuing bis observations, the ex-Post-
master General says:
The great body of the people of the South
had no hand in the concoction of the plot
which has actually convulsed this country
They were as innocent as the peop'e of the
North, yet in every shape iu which wretch
edness can be visited, the South has been
the victim. It was the highest constitution
al duty ol the Government of the United
Slates to have warded off the blow which has
pioslrated this region. The arm was raised
to strike in its very presence. The men in
the capital, in both the halKof Congress, the
usurpers themselves announced the tact that
they had given orders that it should be
struck. They formally took their leave of
the government whose authority they were
about to prostrate in the devoted section
they had resolved to rule or ruin; and they
were told by the head of the administration
■going out, “Go ahead, we will not ‘coerce’
the usurped State power you have contrived
to get into your hands.” The Premier of
the incoming Administration says, also: “Go
ahead, we will confront your revolutionary
movements with concession, violence with
conciliation audthe right hand of fellowship.
The fall of Sumter immediately followed this,
the attempt to succor it being turned aside
by the hand of the premier, who had engaged
that it should fall. What were the people
of the South to infer from this ?
An immense majority, same sixty or sev
enty' thousand, of the people of Virginia had
given their voices, for the government of
their fathers. In those States farther South,
where the Knights of the Golden Circle ex
erted all their secretly armed police to dra
goon and drag the people to vote to throw
off the Union and substitute the Confederacy
a majority ot voters could nowhere be
brought to sanction it. But. when Sumter
fell what could individuals expect who were
everywhere under the heels of the usurpers ?
Would the nation’s government defend them
in any loyal effort? Mr. Bucbanau, the
head of the government, said “it had no right
to do it,” aud Mr. Seward, tbe premier of
the new administration had said, we will not
succor nor defend even the strongholds ol
government—strongholds built to keep re
bellion aud usurpation in check. What
could loyal men do under such circumstances
They were pressed into the army by con
scription. If they fled from their bome9 and
hid in morasses to escape they were hunted
down bj> bloodhounds and put in the front
of battle, with the regulars of the Golden
Circle in their rear. The property of every
body-was a prey, and those only who pro
fessed the utmost zeal to the military power
could hope to have any share in what be
longed to them.
It is not monstrous that our government
should hold a people, put in this predicament,
if we may not say by its own acts, yet cer
tainly by its supineness and acquiescence,
responsible for the crimes of an usurpation
thus put over them ?
And yet the Jilon. Thaddeus Stevens
takes this stand for the Government of the
United States in the resolutions which he
receutly got up a convention to pass at Har
risburg. He thinks that as Pennsylvania
elected Mr. Buchanan President, who de
voted his administration to hatch the trea
son which has trodden down the great com
munity of our own race in the South, so it
has elected him as an agent to complete
their destruction and set up a foreign race
to take their place in the national common
According to the programme of the Ste
vens resolutions, there am no loyal men in
South but the enfranchised black ; the white
man who succumbed to the usurpation and
obeyed its behests—and this every man was
compelled to and disfranchised as disloyal.
In logical sequence flora this state' ot ‘tacts,
the National legislature is to absorb ail
legislation. State and National,' over the
whole South. It is to assume absolute pow
er over everything south of Mason and Dix
on's line—and how is it to be exercised ?
Again Mr. Blair says.—-
Tne measures the President has adopted
to invito the people of the Southern States to
resume their constitutional rights now that
the government has at length discharged its
duty in putting down the armed force which
subjected them, proceed upon the facts I
have recited, and the knowledge he, in com
mon with every intelligent man of the South
possesses, that the people were at all times
ready to do their duty when the government
had performed the obligations imposed upon
it by the Constitution.
We have also, in the abolishment of slave
ry, a sure bond for, the future fidelity of.all
persons at the South to the'Union. Whilst
it is true that the hearts of the people were
never alienated from the government, it is
equally true that by the constitution of so
ciety theie the leaders were euablcd to drag
them into the rebellion. Slavery was the
leverage by which this was effected. But
that great implement of mischief, the source
of so many woes, and to which the fathers
of the government looked with so much ap
prehension, is now forever gone.
The public judgment requires acquiescence
in the thorough measure of universal eman
cipation as the condition of renewed par
ticipation in tbe government. This proceeds
upon the ground that slavery was the cause
ot the rebellion,and that until it is blotted
out and the people surrender it, there is dan
ger of a renewal of the struggle. To this
proposition I agree. But I a9k of those with
whom I have been associated in maintaining
this proposition, that they should accept its
logical consequences. With what justice or
reason can we ttiflict further penalties upon
the people of the South after we have eradi
cated what we agree was the sole cause of
their errors, and obliterated an institution
which alone distinguished them in their so
cial condition from other American citizens ?
IfHhis institution had been one of their own
creating, there might, indeed, be some color
of reason in pursuing them further:- but
when, instead of that being the case, history
snows that it was forced upon them in the
infancy of their settlements by the policy of
foreign despots against the most earnest pro
test of their forelathers, we must admit that
they are blameless for the existence of the
accursed thing in their midst.* Neither by
the Constitution nor by the rules of justice,
having extirpated the cause and subdued the
rebellion, can we do more. So far from it,
indeed, the dictates of humanity require
that the government should do all in its pow
er to heal the wounds which it has been he
cessary to inflict upon our brethren, who
have become the victims of an institution
forced upon them by the tyranny'of Euro
And this was the spirit of Abraham Lin
coln, and he but reflected that of the Ameri
can people. It is also the spirit of Andrew
Johnson. He wears, indeed, a sterner and
more commanding aspect iu his dealings
with the rebels, and has thereby more sud
denly aud completely humbled aud subdued
their fiery cavaliers. But, like the stern old
hero neighbor of the hermitage, in whose
school he was educated, he is too brave to
trample upon the vanquished; no one ever
had a. gentler heart iu his bosom than An
drexV Johnson, and yet no one was ever
more.fierce and defiant to those now' hum
bled and defeated cavaliers in the days of
their power and pride.
To the incontrovertible facts I have recited
establishing the practicability and justice of
adhering to the plain letter of the Constitu
tion there is no answer, hut ambition backed
by power, will justify itself with very little
regard for right even of appearances. Bichard,
when he ordered Hastings to execution,
showing his withered arm as evidence that
he had bewitched him, did so to scoff at his
victim; and the affected tears of the crushed
Sonth, assumed by the ambitious leaders of
the North to justify the destruction of their
political rights, sounds not unlike
ry of Gloster. But, the lust of dowiuion
from which such actions springs is the most
unreasoning, intolerant and remorseless pas
sion of the human bosom. It knows no
Constitution and does not listen tojrutk or
justice. We will appeal in vain to the words
of the Constitution to protect us in our rights
to leaders frenzied with the imperial idea of,
ruling this continent by holding one-half of
it without responsibility to its people, re
quiring a military force to do so, which
would make them masters of the whole. In
vain we shall ask for justice to the Union
men of the South from such men. They
cannot forego their lofty aspirations* to re
cognize the existence of any such class.
In conclusion, Mr. Blair, referring to the
bright future opening upon this country, ex
presses a desire to inaugurate an era of good
feeling. As eoucerns tire distinguished per
sons whose names are introduced in the fore
going remarks, the honorable gentleman is
not likely to be encouraged by the effects of
his own example ; but as a Western editor
said, after calling his cotemporary a thief and
blackguard, “no offence is intended.”
*Mr. Blair might have added, “and by the
cupidity of New England ship owners,” by
whom the African slave trade of this country
was carried on long before the free colony of
Gen. Oglethorpe yielded to the dictation of
the British trustees by permitting blacks to
be brought into her borders. It is, perhaps,
not generally known that the introduction
of slavery into the originally free, colony, and
only free colony of Georgia, was stoutly resisted
by the colonists, while the maratime inter
ests of New England jointed with the British
trustees in forcing slavery upon them, under
the pretext that slavery and the slave trade
was indispensable to the commerce be
tween her and the mother country. Such is,
nevertheless, a well attested fact o£ colonial

Partial Restoration of Civil Fotvor
in the State.
[From the Charleston Courier ]
Major Gen. Gillmore and staff, who accom
panied Gen. Meade on a visit to the interior
of the State, as far as Columbia, returned
yesterday evening by the Northeastern Rail
road. Gen. Meade and his party took the
Wilmington and Manchester Railroad cars at
Fioience, 8. C., for Wilmington, cn route on
.bis return North.
The party, on leaving here last Friday,
took the Northeastern Kail Road, and not
withstanding the delay in the examination
of all the military posts on the route, inclu
ding Darlington, Sumter' and Florence,
reached Columbia Sunday, where they were
met by His Excellency Governor Perry. A
very pleasant and satisfactory interview
took place, resulting in an agreement and
the partial restoration of civil power through
the entire State, by the full and complete es
tablishment of the civil Courts for the trial
of-all cases except those of freedmea and
persons of coior. In all cases of the latter,
and where the testimony of colored persons
is necessary, the Provost Marshal Court are
for the present, to have exclusive cogni
zance and adjudication.
All cases between white persons are to
be heard and adjudicated by the S'ate
Courts, Municipal Authorities, or Civil Offi
cers, under and according to the laws of the
State. The Civil Courts are to be opened
under the direction of His Excellency the
Governor, and the Civil and Municipal Offi
cers are to be permitted to resume their
official duties and discharge them without
Luting the interview, Gov. Perry spoke in
warm terms of commendation of the action
and proceedings of the Oourts lately estab
lished, by order of General Gillmore. Gen.
Meade expressed himself well pleased with
the _ condition of affairs in South Caroliua, j
stating that everything was working to his

With tig; result of the interview our cit
izens have every cause for congratulation
Although civil power is not yet fully' restor-«t

complete the work of restoration as rapidly

[Emm the Augusta Constitutionalist.)
One can hardly spend a more pleasantly
instructive hour than in pouring over a late
map of the United States. For four years
there has been no edition, we know of, pub
lished in the South, and to note now the po
litical changes of those years, as rendered iu
geography “is matter both oi interest aud
profit. With exception that tho Panhandle
region of the Old Dominion, aud thence
south and east to the Alleghany range, has
been erected into the State of West Virginia,
which shows oddly enough upon the map—
there have, been no changes this side
the Mississippi; but on the other side,
and to the westward of that tier of
States from Minnesota to Texas, there
have been alterations, whose.fuli magnitude
only strikes one when the whole country is
beheld in that comprehensive view a map
presents. Going westward, then, from the
riparain slates of the traus-Mississippi, we
light first on Dakota, which, since its re
limitation, may be taken to bo almost anew
territory, though organized prior to the war.
Then, going south, comes Nebraska territo
ry, which still remaius such, though author
ized by act of Congress to form itself into a
State, should it “so desire. Then comes
Kansas, that famous-field where border ruf
fian and Sharp's rifle missionary once con-‘
tended, where Atchison and Jim Lane raided
around with their wild troopers, and where
old Ossawottamie Brown began the noviciate
that, ended in his soul’s being sent marching
on, at Harper’s Ferry. Admitted as the
Ihirty-lourth State, in' 1861, Kansas is now
prosperous and happy, aud bleeds no more.
With the Indian territory ends the second
trans Mississippi tier, and then we come to
Montana, a rugged territory, organized
in 1861, and cut up in ail directions,
as • its name indicates, by the Rocky
Mountain range aud ijs spurs. Then to the
south is a mountainous territory, roamed
over battle savage Crows, aud 100 littled set
tled to have even a uayie. South of this
wild region is Colorado, organized as a ter
ritory in 1861, possessing Denver City as its
capital, and having a population sufficient
to entitle it to admission as a State, should
it desire to avail itself of the enabling act of
Congress, passed in its behalf. Then comes
New Mexico Territory, ending the roll call
of the third trans-Mississippi tier. The
fourth, if indeed it should be called so, rather
than the second Pacific tier, begins with
Idaho, organized as a territory in 1863, and
having within its borders a rich, though un
worked, gold region and the famous Fre
mont Peak, two and a half miles in height.
South of Idaho is Utah territory, wheie that
hoary beast, old Brigham Young, dishonors
his Maker aud his manhood by a false reli
gion and a- real sensuality. Then pomes
Aiizona, organized as a territory in 1883, fa
mous for its silver deposits, and roamed over
in great part by Pah Utah, Yuma, and Na
vajo Indians, supposed to be of the pure old
blood of aucient Mexico, driveu by Cortez to
the rocks aud deserts of the nortuern wilds.
Then, to the westward of this tier, comes
Washington territory, and then, in regular
order, the Pacific States, as they wete be
fore the War, Oregon and California. And
just in this very out of the way neighbor
hood, .shut off from sea cm -river, and alter
nating in surface from a rock to a desert, a
new State has arisen, sought for and received
admission as the thirly-sixlti State of the
American Union—the Stale of Nevada. Ad
mitted in October of last year, its very name
is hardly known to many iu the South, not
to speak of those famous Washoe silver
mines about Carson city, that have, as it
were in a day, built up a wild crag into a
With this ends the long roll call of the new
states and territories now to ba found set
I'orMfou the map, as they have been marked
out iu the law. AIL that vast region between
tbe immediate trans-Mississippi and the Paci
fic, as we remembered it four years since,
marked only here and there with some lone
ly river, some sterile desert, some mountain
range or heaven-kissing hill—with no sign of
life save the name of some petty fort or rov
ing tribe of saveges, is now divided by law
ful metes and bounds dotted with towns and
viliages, and with, every here and there, the'
dome of some state capital rising in the
virgin air. Thirty-six States are novv the
Static L'nited, and ten territories lie organiz
ed, from whose broad area near twice that
number of new States can readily, in lime,
be formed. This generation will not see it,
perhaps the next, even, may not, but, sooner
or later, if this country hold together, one
hundred States will send their Senators to
meet in a council as majestic aud as power
ful as that of Aucient Rome. Maine and
California, Washington and Florida, will
form the oppqpite corners of a great paralle
legram of S'ales whose aggregated wealth,
power, diguity a till greatness, can Olll3' be
even dimly pictured, when one's recollection
of ali that was Imperial with the Cfesar’a is
aided by a glance at tbe map of this great
country ot The People's.
Agricultural Plans fcr Another Year,
The season rapidly approaches when it be
hooves every planter and land owner to form
a definite plan of agricultural action for an
other year, if he does not intend to sell his
laud, or suffer it to lie idle.
Within the past few days we have heard
every plan discussed, by intelligent and prac
tical farmers, whereby they intend to maite
the most of their rich treasure, in the land
which the government has left them, and
realize the largest profits out of the staple of
cotton, wliiVk is now bringing, and will
throughout the next year, bring such remu
nerative prices. Every plan has its advo
cates, and will be tried the next year.
The agitation of the subject of (arming un
der the new system of labor, to which all
must conform, we look upon as a good omen
It demonstrates that there is life iu the farm
ers yet; that though they sustained heavy
losses, when the government freed their
slaves, they are determined to try what can
M'donc for raising the agricultural pro
ducts of the earth, on which the pecuniary
prosperity of the South has, in times past,
depended; and on which, hereafter, that
prosperity in future, is to be mainly, built.
We saj f , then; to our farming friends, con
sider well, and form your plans, and then
carry them out in all faith and sincerity. It
is only by adopting different. methods for
utilizing and making profitable the labor of
the negroes, that the best plan can be evolved:
and such a plan being once formed it mayfftfe
Blit is not for us, in our editorial closet, to
expect to enlighten practical farmers on their
wisest course iu the present juncture ; but
wo may, with propriety, as we do, urge upon
them, by every consideration of private in
terest, as well as public policy, to make ar
rangements within the time during which
such arrangements are usually made, nor
giving their lands a thorough working during
the coming year. Thys is the §nly way by
which plenty can be made to stnile upon our
land, We Oroily believe the means to re
tain their former importance to the nation
and the world, are yet within the reach of
the people of the South, and hope to see
them experimented upon and developed.— j
