From the Macon Messenger.
Sounding the Alarm.
That most excellent and judicious paper, the New
York Journal of Commerce, sounds a loud note of
alarm in the subjoined article. It declares that there
is more danger to the perpetuity of the government
from the wild schejpies and reckless and headlong,
course of the radical majority in Congress, than there
was from the civil war itself ;"snd it suggests popular
movements at once, if possible to overcome and arrest
the ruinous career of the agitators
The ^besident.—The responsibilities resting on
Mr. Johnson are ao less heavy than those which were
on Mr. Lincoln. Nor is the condition of the country
more sate than it was when Mr. Lincoln been one
year in the Presidential chair. This assertion may
seem startling, but it is a conclusion forced upon the
caretul observer by the manifest state of pur affairs.
There was s common expression three years ago, “the
life of the nation is in danger.’* He greatly errs who
imagines that the only dangers threatening national
existence are those which are visible in war. Even in
the very heat of a great civil strife there may be more
hope for the future than in the aspect which the po
litical strife gives to a people: There is less hope of
B iAm2A saving the republic if the schemes of the President's
K,HT i ri ail(1 I opponent* are now successful, than there has been at
16.— 1 he House passunne ( any time since 1861. The dangers before us are
outinuiug the j greater than the dangers we have passed through, be
cause there was a way out of those, and there is no
_ way through these which now threaten us with disso
lution and destruction.
It is marvelous that that there cap be men in a coun
try like this so bhnd as not to see the direction in
which the radical leaders are dragging the country.

questioning party affiliations at such a time; the men
who are for the Union are for the President. Those
who are against him on the present questions are
striking at “the life of the nation.** They are not
traitors, for they have the right to think and to act as
intelligent Americans, but they are no less enemies of
their country than if they were guilty of actual trea
son. Strangely enough they are the very men who,
lour years ago, urged Mr. Lincoln to imprison
Northern men and suppress the Northern newspapers
lor opposing his policy, which opposition they de
clared to be treason, and they are to-day doing vastly
more harm to the President's plans and policy for the
salvation of the Union than all the Democrats in the
land did in four years to the policy of Mr. Lincoln, and
they are doing this at a moment of critical danger,
when the fortune and prosperity of the whole country-
are at stake. It is beginning to be time for men who
stand by Mr. Johnson to say so, whatever were their
former party relations. We suggest the idea of an ex
pression of the views of the city of New York without
distinction of party. Let Republicans and Democrats
who are patriots join in a demonstration.
We of the South are mere helpless drifts upon the

nothing for self-protection or the common good, and

“On motion of Alderman Salisbury the following
was adopted by Council on Monday night: >
“ Whereas, A detachment of the 103d U. S. colored
troops has been recently sent to this city as a garrison,
and whereas, it is believed that there is no necessity
for the presence of any military force to preserve
peace and order in our city, the same never having
been more tranquil, quiet and orderly than since the
withdrawal of Colonel Woodall’s regiment; and.
whereas, the presence of said colored troops has a
tendency to disorganize thq^colored population of the
city and surrounding country, evidences of which are
already manifest; and whereas, there exists, in the
city and its vicinity a very general and serious appre
hension and alarm amongsi the white citizens growing
out of the presence of said colored troops, and it is
deemed highly desirable that they should be with
drawn, and immediate steps taken to accomplish 9 that
object if possible—Therefore
tte-gut ved, That a committee of three Aldermen and
three citizens, with his Honor, the Mayor, be instruct
ed to call upon the United States authorities now in
this ci^y, and see if some measure cannot be adopted
to cause the withdrawal of the garrison now stationed
here ; that said commits e be instructed, if necessary,
to communicate to those in authority the state of af
fairs, and by petition or otherwise endeavor to have
the garrison withdrawn.
“Aldermen Salisbury. Bivins and Mcllhenny were
appointed as Aldermen on said committee, and ex-
Provisional Governor Johnson, and Messrs. R. L.
Mott and Wiley Williams as the citizens.
“Lieut. Petit, commanding post, has issued orders
prohibiting the selling of intoxicating drinks to sol

TO A LICK.
Speak gently to me, Alice,
For angry words may pain;
And wound a kindred spirit
You may not heal agam.
Speak gently to me, gently,
Though I may oft offend;
It is not wilful erring
In one so true a friend.
Speak gently to me, Alice,
My words are kind to thee;
Thou art as dear unto my heart
As sister e’er should be.
Our souls are kindred, Alice,
And each may be refined,
By the spirit’s purer promptings,
Unto a weaker mind.
Kind words fall on my spirit
Like dew from starry skies,
Which gives new life unto the flower
That withers else.—and dies.
Speak kind words to me, Alice,
For harsh ones always pain;
And when they fall from Ups 1 love,
Mine cannot smile again.
Speak gently to me, gently.
Why do I plead in vain ?

majority. What despot ever ruled like the French
Republican a—what stupid, blood-thirsty, remorseless
tyranny of despotism can be compared with the Re-
• publican atrocities of 17‘JS ?
The Northern Republicans of I860 raise the same
old clamor against “aristocrats'' and “oligarchs’* even
in the Senate. See Sumner's resolution. Impatient
of the slightest restraints—they drown all opposition
in Congress with furious violence. They are beginning
a war upon the President which, unless checked, will
end in his impeachment and degradation ; and
their war upon the Constitution, disguised under
specious pretences of amendment, is the daily busi
ness of every session. They intend to remove all
resti^int upon the direct enforcement of the popular
edicts of each recurring election, at the same time
they are at work with all-consuming ardor to debase
and degrade thoae popular edicts by corrupting the
suffrage with negro votes 1
Is there a Northern man of sense and position who
can view this headlong descent without alarm ? If so,
we tell him his alarm, when he feels It, will come too
late. Southern rights, interests and property will not
much longer furnish a held of operations for this law
less and irrepressible tyranny. We are fast getting too
poor for the picking; and the time iacoming when the
"aristocrats" and “oligarchs” of the North will be
the victims I
These furious shouts for universal *• liberty, equality
and fraternity," echoed in the Senate by Sumner’s
resolutions against “aristocrats, oligarchs and mon
opolists," find their natural sequel in a war against all
vested rights and all property. The Southerner was
the llrst victim'to unpopular property, but will he be
the last ?
The statesmen and philosophers of the old world
have ever held the incompatibility of universal suf
frage and private property rights. Macauley limits
the practical harmony between the two in this nation,
only by the time when our vast public domain shall be
all occupied and a large laboring claas shall feel the
pinchings of inadequate compensation.
We smile, in contempt, at these opinions and vati
cinations, but Republicanism in America in respect to
the boundless future, is but stm an experiment. We
can only see, every year, increasing popular and
legislative impatience of healthful limitations—in
creasing contempt for all that system of cheks and
balances which the Fathers deemed indispensable to
the workings of the aystem—increasing p'Jij-i^r de
moralization—and one all-consuming desire upqji n the
part of Congress to impart a more direct and respon
sive action of the government to a more debased and

not die, as was reported. He was struck three times
in the arm, not once in the body; and on yesterday,
we are told, he was getting along welL Mr. Lindsay
wag captured beyond the Opelika depot by a squad of
negro soldiers. Civil officers tell us that the squad
were prevented from killing him by the exertions of a
corporal. This same squad threatened to kill the
marshal and his deputy. The negro soldiers carried
Mr. Lindsay as far as Duran’s corner, where some
allege ho was taken by eitizens from them. Ws, how
ever, heard Lieut. Mulligan, U. 8. A., who had arrived
on the Macon train that afternoon, more than once
assert that, after he had obtained from Mr. Lindsay
his name, be released him and told him to go on about
his business, and he did so. We are confident that
Mr. Lindsay will appear as soon as a fair hearing can
oan be obtained. He bore quietly for aome time from
the negro soldier what he never would have done from
a white man. " 1
