General Grant and the Monroe Doctrine.
Philadelphia, October 4.
It is established beyond a doubt that, in
conversation with a distinguished Illipoisan,
a few days since, Lient. Gen. Grant so far
varied from his customary reticence on pub
lic topics as to unreservedly express himself
on the Mexican question. He declares that
the Government will vindicate the Monroe
doctrine at an early day, and that Maximil
ian must leave Mexico. It wiff be, lie says,
less expensive to rid Mexico of the presence
of an enemy than to guard our borders
against him. It is his opinion that it will re
quire no call for troops, but that with our
present army we can spare enough to give
effectiveness to the forces Mexico will be
ready to put in the field, if onr Government
aids them in tbe matter of supplies. GeD.
Grant is of the opinion that the President
and the authorities at Washington hold this
as a settled purpose, and only await the
meeting of Congress to take open ground in
the matter. It is not believed that France
will be able to disregard European compli
cation, present and prospective, so as to
make the cause of Maximilian her own.—
This solution of the Mexican question mnst
be accepted as one of the forthcoming sen
sations for Ihe close of the year.
It is understood that after the trial of Cap

GEN. SLOCUM S SPEECH.
The President’s Restoration
A SOLDIER’S PLATFORM.
Mo Interference with the Donies
tir Affairs of States.
Gen. Slocum, the Democratic nominee for
Secretary of State ot New York, made a
speech at a mass meeting of the party in
Syracuse, on Monday night of last week,
trom which we take the following extract:
The great question which for years has
agitated our country—whicu has influenced
all our legislation—which has created sec
tional parties, and at last has culminated in
civil war, has finally and lorever been put at
rest. The operations ot the war having de
moralized and rendered the slaves valueless ;
the Stales are now voluntarily moving to the
entire extinction of the system. Most de
voutly do I thank God for this result. lam
confident the abolition of slavery will prove
a greater blessing to the slaveholder than to
the enslaved. With a soil of surpassing
richness—with a climate equal to that of
Italy—with a monopoly in the culture of the
greatest of all staples, the removal of that
instituiion which has checked the develop
ment of her resources, and has driven ener
gy, enterprise and capital from her borders,
opens to her a career of prosperity, which in
a few years will do much to make her chil
dren forget the loss of life and property she
has recently suffered. The only impediment
has now been removed which has heretotore
prevented us from having a true Union—one
of interest arid feeling, as weU as of law. I
believe the Union is now permanently estab
lished, aud that, as a people, we are soon to
enter upon a brilliant career. Whether this
career is to commence at once, or be deferred
twenty or thirty years, depends very much
upon' the course pursueu by the General
Government toward the Southern States.—
If the General Government is to assume
powers which it has never before claimed to
possess, and is to attempt to decide who
shall be entitled to tbe elective franchise in
certain States ; if it is to continue to inter
fere in tbe domestic affairs of the Southern
States, keeping military officers in the midst
of their people, to act as judges in all cases
of dispute between different classes of citi
zens—tiien the dawn of peace and prosperity
is yet far in the distance. The issue in the
recent war was on the right of secession—
the Southern States contending tor that right,
and declaring coercion on trie part of the
General Government to be a violation of
their legal and constitutional rights. The
General Government, on the oilier hand,
assumed that no such right existed, and
treated the pretended secession as a re
volt of a portion of the citizens of those
States. The triumph of the government has
decided the question, and it will never
again be made an issue unless we now vol
untarily reverse the
to the seceding States, you have been out of
the Union, and thereby lost your constitu
tional rights as States, we certainly recog
nize the very principle for which trie South
has been contending. But lam opposed to
all these measures lor interference in the do
mestic affairs of those States, not only be
cause I believe we uave no constitutional
right to interfere, but because I believe it will
be unwise, impolitic aud unjust to do so
leading to far greater evils than we would
correct. One of the results of the recent war
has been the sudden emancipation of tour
millions of slaves. Os these, at least one and
a half millions are either children without
parents upou whom they can depend for sup
port, or old and infirm people, having no
children upon whom they can lean. Os the
remaining two and a half millions, not oue
in a thousand can read—none of them possess
land. All have heretofore labored only by
compulsion, and of course have not acquired
babiis of industry or economy. They are in
a laud which has just been desolated by civil
war. Tbe policy lo be adopted toward them
is a qdestion which should engage the best
minds in oui country. In the solution of the
question differences of opinion must of course
be anticipated. The plan ot colonization has
been proposed, and as many advocates, I
believe it to be impracticable as well as un
wise. In their present state of ignorance
and indolence their condition as a colony
would be infinitely worse than that from
which they have just been removed. They
need tbe example and aid of the white race,
and the States where they now are need their
labor. The two races will remain associated
and the great mass of tbe negroes will re
main in the Southern States. These States
now come forward and accept the total abo
lition of slavery as one of tbe results of the
war. In their State constitutions, which
are now being remodeled, every State
will acknowledge this fact, and will in
sert an article prohibiting slavery henceforth
and forever. Having done this, they claim
all the rights guaranteed to them by the Con
stitution. The right of deciding who among
their own citizens shall be entitled to the
elective franchise, aud the right of control
ling their own domestic affairs. Shall they
be allowed these privileges, or shall the gen
eral government, in violation of the Constitu
tion, and in violation of repeated declarations
as to its purposes in prosecutiug tbe war,
assume control of these matters f This is
now almost the only living issue between the
great political parties of the day. The Demo
cratic party, with entire unanimity, declares
ip favor ot allowing to every Slate the exer
cise of all powers not delegated by it to the
general government. Now that the freedom
of the slave is universally acknowledged,
ibis pariy is williug that the States, where
the freedmen reside, shall pass such laws as
they may deem proper for their education
and support. A large portion of the opposi
tion party favors having the general govern
ment assume control ot these matters, bur
dening our people with the support of a mil-
Hod*paupers, and Complicating us in tbe set
tlement ot questions with which we have no
constitutional right to meddle. The argu
ments used to convince northern p#>ple that
it is the duty of the general government to
assume this great responsibility, while the
States are williug and desirous of relieving
the government from it are based, first,
upon the assumption that as soon as the gov
ernment withdraws its protection,great cruel
ties will be inflicted upon the blacks, and se
condly, that tbe States will at once pass laws
reducing the race again to a condition but
little better than a state of slavery. I have
never believed that all tjie humane and kind
ly impulses implanted by nature fa the heart
of man were confined to a particular section
pf country- I firmly believe that the sight of
human suffering calls forth as much sym
pathy in one section of our country as in
another, and Ido not fear that a course of
systematic cruelty will ever be practiced in
any section of this country toward any of
God’s creatures. That it wUI be fouud
necessary to pass laws for the government
of the blacks, Ido not doubt, Laws must
be passed to provide for the maintenenceref
tbe old and infirm and for the support and
education of the young. That isolated cases
of injustice in the treatment of the blacks
will occur, Ido not doubt; that some nn
w4m Jaws may be passed, is not improba
ble ; but lam confident less injustice will
be done tbe black! as well as the whites, if
tbe matter is left in tbe hands of those most
deeply interested. The labor'of the black
man i» an absolute necessity in every South
ern State. Now that he is free, self-interest
SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1865.
will prompt the men of the South to en
deavor to make him a cheerful aud willing
laborer. Having acknowledged his freedom,
humanity, patriotism, aud self-interest, will
combine to.. induce the statesmen of the
South to adopt such laws with reference to
tbe negroes as will be best calculated to pro
mote bis interest and the Interests of society.
But suppose that, distrusting the Southern
people, we lake into our owu hands ilie ap
palling task of regulaiiug the relations be
tween employer and employe—the task of
providing for the indigent, educating the
young, aud compelling all to labor who are
able but indisposed to do so ? Aside from
the heavy burdens it will impose upon us,
aside from the contentions and bitterness to
which it will give rise in Congress and
among our people, shall we not be likely to
commit as many errors—to perpetrate as
many acts of injustice as would be perpe
trated under tbe Slate authorities ? Look at
the working of the institution now in opera
tion for regulating the affairs of the freed
men. You often read accounts in the news
papers as to the condition of affairs in cer
tain localities. You are informed about the
prosperous condition of a lew schools es
tablished for the benefit of negro children—
of the readiness with which they learn their
letters, and of the ardor with which they sing
patriotic airs? According to some ot tuese ac
counts the negro children are far supe
rior to your own; they mutter the alphabet
in their sleep aud spend most of their waking
hours in invoking blessings on the head of
General Saxton aud other distinguished pub
lic men. To many I presume this is pleasant
reading matter, and it may serve to conviuce
some people that the great problem is already
solved. That through the efforts oi Saxton
aud his colaborera, lour millions of ignorant
and degraded beings are to be suddenly ele
vated, aud to become educated, refined, and
putrotic members ot society. You seldom
hear of tbe numerous cases where the treed
raau have laid cluims to tbe lands of their
former masters, and have quietly informed
them that they held title under the United
States government, anti have persistently re
fused to do anything but eat, loiter aud sleep.
They fail to tell you of the cases where just
as the harvest was to commence, every band
has suddenly disappeared from the place,
leaving 'he labors of a year to decay in the
field. They fail to tell you of great bands of
colored people wbo leave their lormer homes
aud congregate in the cities and villages, or
settle oii a plantation without permissiom
from the owner, seeking only food and utterly
careless of the future. On the very day that
I left Vicksburg, a poor woman came to me
with a complaint that at least fifty negroes,
not one of whom she had ever before seen,
had settled on her larm aDd were eating the
few stores she had laid aside lor winter use.
Our sympathies are due to the white as well
as to ihe black race, though we have uo con
stitutional right to control either. The diffi
culties surrounding this question can only be
met and overcome by practical men. It is
an easv matter to theorize on the subject; to
point out the evils likely to result trom the
policy adopted by the President, but it
will be found far more difficult to suggest
any other method not likely to result in
still greater evils. Genera! Howard, who
stands at the head of the Freedman’s Bureau,
is a man of great purity of character, and
will never sustain a system which he does not
think productive of good, and yet after care
tullv observing the operations of that bureau,
I alia convinced that more evil than good will
result from perpetuating it after the stales
bave adopted constitutions prohibiting
slavery. Each state is placed in cliaige of
an assistant commissioner. It is made tbe
duty of ibe department commander to detail
such officers and soldiers as these assistant
commissioners may require in the discharge
of their duties All questions between
whites and blacks are to be adjudicated by
an officer or agent of tbe bureau. This, of
course,requires that one officer or agent shall
be stationed in each county, or at least that
they shall be so distributed as lo be acces
sible to ail the inhabitants. These gentle
men, who are to act as judges in matters of
difference between the races, are usually
lieuteuants selected from the regiments on
duty in the State. Each judge, lieutenant,
or agent, as you may please to term him,
has his guard, and each guard its commis
sary establishment. The news of his arrival
in any section of the country spreads with
wonderful rapidity. A negro has a griev
ance against his employer or some other
white person—he enters his complaint, and
the judge or lieutenant orders the white
man or white lady to appear before him and
confront his or her accuser. The usual
forms adopted in our courts of justice, to as
certain the facts in the case, are discarded.
In some cases tbe accused is at once released;
in others he is fined twenty, fifty, or a hun
dred dollars. The judge collects the fine
and usually forwards it to his superior, to be
used in detraymg tbe expenses Os the insti
tution. The negro goes home, stopping at
each plantation, and detailing the particu
lars of the ease to tbe other Ireedmen. Half
the negroes in that section are at once seized
with a desire tq see the Yankee military
judge, and to see how their old masters
or mistresses would . act on being
before him. are made
againt the kindest and* best people
in the country. The immediate re
sult }S, despondency and anger on the part
of the whites, discontent aud insolence on
the part of the blacks. Here is a young
man, from a Northern State not educated as
a judicial officer, aud often not possessing a
single qualification for the discharge of such
duties, upon whom devolve greater responsi
bilities than devolve upon the justices ot our
supreme courts; for he not only acts as judge,
but aiao as sheriff and clerk; and from bis
decision it is seldom an appeal can be made.
In my remarks upon this bureau, I do not
wish to reflect upon any of the officers con
nected with it. Generally they are earnest
and sincere men, and are doing all in their
power to make it successful. It is of the
system I speak; I contend that it i9 so utter
ly foreign to the principles by which our
people bave been governed that it cannot
continue. And yet it appears to be the only
method that can be devised for regulating
these matters, providing the task of regula
ting them is to devolve upon tbe general gov
ernment. During the past tew months I
have ehjoyed good opportunities for studying
the character und disposiiion ot the treed
men aud ot ttie workings of the organization
designed to protect them. I have become
fully*convinced that the policy adopted by tbe
President of leaving to the respective Slates
the entire control of their local affairs is the
only safe policy that can be adopted.

A Rascally St lieme Frustrated—Arrest of
A Washington letter says :—About the
middle of lasi month General Baker received
information of a plot at Lynchburg, Va., to
rob tbe Post Quartermaster's safe of a large
ainouut of money it was known to coutain.
The case worked up has resulted in tbe ar
rest and incarceration in the Old Capitol
Prison last night of Brevet Brigadier General
J. C. Briscoe, of the One Hundred and Ninth
Pennsylvania Volunteers, commanding post
at Lynchburg, and A. W. Lackey, of Wor
cester, Massachusetts, formerly a sutler at
that post. General Briscoe is an Irishman
by birth, and has been in command of the
post at Lynchburg since Lee’s surrender.
Captain W. A. Alberger, son of Canal Com
missioner Alberger, of New York, has been
Quartermaster at Lynchburg, and had in bis
charge on the 21st of September one hundred
and twenty thousand dollars in greenbacks,
besides a large amount of captured gold coin
and bullion, which had been placed in bis
charge for safe-keeping. Briscoe approached
Alberger through Lackey, and proposed to
him as the war was about to close and none
ot them had made money out of it, they
should make a grand haul in concert and
pocket fifty thousand dollars a piece in a
flash. Alberger kept tbe funds in a safe,
which formerly belonged to a rebel officer,
and this fact was to give color to the charge
which was to be made that the ex-rebel hav
! ing a duplicate key to the safe had robbed it.
Briscoe was to arrest the Quartermaster,
his clerks and half the people of Lynchburg
to avert suspicion. The General took an im
pression of the safe key in wax and sent
Lacky to Philadelphia to get the keys made.
Alberger, ostensibly in the plot, informed the
Secretary of War and two or three of General
Baker’s officers were sent down to Lynch
burg to arrest the guilty parties. These offi
cers saw through holes in the ceiling of the
office General Briscoe come in while the
Quartermaster and his clerks were gone to
dinner; saw him unlock the safe with the
false key, take out three packages of green
backs of forty thousand dollars each and load
himself dow’n with coin and bullion to the
amount of near fifteen thousand dollars, hav
ing previously ignated saturated paper and
cloth with a view to burning the building—
They followed him across the hail ot his
own office and burst in upon him counting
j and arranging the money behind his bolted
j door. Tbe wax moulds and false keys were
j lound upon him, aud the proof was iudis
| putable. These proofs are now in General
Baker's possession. Briscoe and Lacky are
in the Old Capitol awaiting trial, aud Alber
ger, the honest Quartermaster, is on duty at
bis old post.
