PREJUDICED VIEWS OP THE POUR
OF THE SOUTH.
The public ought to give little credence to
the statements of politicians in regard to any
thing affecting their own interests. In most
things this rule is tolerably well observed,
but in regard to the institutions of the South,
all kinds of opinions, the most inconsistent
and contradictory as well as those having
some aspect of probability, are held by my
riads on the mere say-so of the press. Tue
whole force of the anti-slavery, and conse
quent anti-southerns sentiment of the North,
has grown of credence to extravagant state
ments concerning the cruet and brutalizing
effect of the institution of slavery as it exist
ed in our southern States. But now that
such exaggerations are rendered useless by the
destruction of slavery, and it is desirable to
make the people ot the North believe the
blacks superior to tbe white southerner of
the laboring class, from which not only Presi
dent Johnouu Wl oy L.K4UJ wuci U“'»s
ed men have sprung, we lind in many of the
northern political papers a very different
yr x -»-»—» is*. T^kq_fhr. instance the
' following from a Chicago paper :
“According to all accounts from all parties,
there is no such class of people in auy civil
ized country as the poor white trash of the
South. For generation alter generation they
have been trampled under the heels of the
slaveholders, uutil at last they are more
embruted than the slave himself. England
has its social leprosy in the agricultural la
borers ot the southern shires, anil with the
poor Irish that live with their pigs and poul
try ; but these are a healthy and even prince
ly people compared with the white refuse of
the Southern States. Wherever men will
Work there is hope for them ; tor iu spite of
the curse, there is a dignity in labor which
rescues it from savagery, even though the
wages, as in the English and Irish examples,
are barely sufficient to support life. But idle
ness kills both body ane soul.
No wonder, therefore, that with an indo
lent and spiritless people, such as the poor
white trash are, there such be a state of so
ciety down South that is utterly revolting.
The aristocrats, who have hitherto held the
land and the slaves, have forbidden all im
provement in the condition of the poor
whites. They have discouraged schools and
newspapers, because they instinctively felt
that these peculiar institutions were at enmi
ty with their peculiar institution, and the re
sult has been that the whites have grown up
iu a state of ignorance, compared with which
ludian barbarism is scholarship and civiliza
Now we assure our northern readers from
a lifetime of persoßtl observation, and care
ful study ot tbe facts, that these and similar
charges against the whke laboring popula
tion o 1 the South are as substantially as un
founded as tbe previous assumptiou of the
degradation of the negro under slavery as it
existed in this section. As isolated cases of
cruelty to the slave were once given to the
Northern people, and received in good faith
by them, as evidence of universal demoral
ization and debasement, so now exceptional
types of poor southerners are held up as rep
resenting the entire class.
There is no difficulty in finding specimens
of the degraded wtiite man in the South,
brutalized and stunted in his moral growth
by unfavorable surrounding circumstances.
Especially is this true where the great plan
ter interest has been supreme, or where a
hard soil and a poor market have prevented
the accumulation of property. But even
in New Eugland, says a Boston paper, such
districts with such inhabitants may be found.
Like causes produce like effects everywhere-
In the Western States innumerable localities
of similar character exist. But if we .take
the entire poor white population of the
Southern States together, we shall find them
differing but little, save in one point, from
the same class of native population in the
North. Education is not so common nor so
good among them as ainoug the farmers and
mechanics of the North, although a large
majority are able to read and write, and are
thus in advance of tbe English yeomanry and
peasantry from which they sprang.
But the manhood of this great body of peo
ple remain vital and sound. It is only ne
cessary to point to the energy with which
they have fought the Union Armies for the
last four years, to convince unprejudiced
minds of this fact. Honestly and intelligent
ly studied and compared with the yeomanry
of tbe North, in all that makes men, the white
rural population of the South are not unwor-

thy the brotherhood of men which is un
questionably theirs. A little ruder perhaps,
less affected by the contiguity of cities and
manulacturing towns, less acquainted with
books, they unquestionably are. But the
natural shrewdness, courage, and resources
ot the Anglo-Saxon, his energy, his self
confidence and belief in bis manifest destiny,
exist, and show themselves as strongly in
the poor white man of the South as his coin
patiiotot the North. Iu truth, the condition
of the poor w hite people of the South has
never been understood in the North. But
we are convinced one of the but results of
the war, will be to make the sections better
acquainted with each other. Nearly two
millions ol Northern men have visited the
South and returned, and although they came
as an army, and were met as “invaders,"
yet they were unavoidably brought in con
tact with many ol their fellow countrymen
of this section, in such a way as to give
them better ideas of things as they exist
than could be gained by them in any other
These mc-n have returned home, and tbe
knowledge they have gained, must be felt in
its influence upon community, in spite
of all the politicians can do, and indirect an
tagonism with their wishes and interest.
The South and the North will be better
known to each other limn before, and tbe in
fluence of this knowledge can be but on the
side of cordial re-union and a future good
