TIIE WEEKLY TELEGRAPH AND MESSENGER FRIDAY MAY 23,1834. A NATIONAL PARASITE. THE NECKO'6 RELATIONS WITH THE J Confederate government. WHITE RACE. Didrunsion of the Centralhlnft Ten dency of Recent Class Legisla tion, Particularly the Blair Educational Bill, Etc. {FROM AN OCCASIONAL COP NIPPON dent.] Editors Telegraph and Messenger: Nat uralists have much to say of parasitic plants and animals. The mistletoe is one of the mott familiar instances of the form ex class, and the hermit-crab is one of the most notable examples of the latter class. The mistletoe, instead of gathering its nourishment from air and soil, draws its ^applies from theoak and chestnut. With equal disinterestedness the hermit-crab, instead of buildings own houses, utilizes the cast-off shells ■ various mollusca. In both cases there is, as scientists teach, a rapid degeneration. Parasitism is not, however, confined to the vegetable and animal kingdoms. There are frequent examples amongst the lower%id higher human races. Kvery un productive consumer, whether duke or dead-beat, is a social parasite. Every landlord or employer, who grinds the poor, and, by one or another crooked device, appropriates without just compensation the blood and sweat of the toiling millions, is none the less a parasite, because of his plethoric money-bags. Aggressive syndicates, land monopolies, tax exempted capital, whether in bonds or railways, all go to augment the burdens of the bread-winners. They perpetuate an evil which menaces the peace and pros per; ty of the commonwealth. They arc in no small measure responsible for the growth of communism, and pave the way for Pittsburg massacres and French revo- Moralize as we may on the comeliness of law and order, emphasize ns wc may choose the sacredness of vested rights, these “wiae aawi" are but paper barriers, when the smouldering passions of a hun gry populace break tortb with desolating Force and fury. These issues are not yet imminent in this country. But for this we are less indebted to the sagacity of our rulers than to that broad heritage which furnishes ample room for our constantly ■welling population. Our civil war. follow ed by the emancipation of live millions of slaves, the accumulation of avast national de bt, the establishment of an enormous pension list, has cast a grievous burden on the tax payers of the country. tub neoroes, unfitted morally and intellectually for the exercise of freedom, were distinctly recog nized as “wards of the nation/’ Even while the sulphur smoke of battle still floated In the air, this blighting curse of parasitism was entailed on coming genera tions. The Freedman's Bureau was in augurated, with its periodical disbursement of food and clothing. In many instat es it was a well bestowed charity. Bnt in an immense majority of cases it was dircctiv promotive of idleness. As practically ad ministered it was the offering of a premium to thriftless vagabondism that did quite as much to demoralize the •row, as the patriotic carnet-baggers I pious school-marms who followed 1 Hebrews;’’ who during the war was such a j renounced stickler for State sov ereignty, that be more than once embar rassed and hindered the war policy of the Confederate government. Nor was he more fortunate in his appeal to the prac tice of the government with reference to internal improvements. An appeal to precedent is allowable in the forum. re decisis is a wise judicial maxim. Bat the merest pettifogger knows that it is out of place in the benate chamber. Ours is in theory, and until these evil days was in practice, a government of consti tutional limitations. Besides, the analo- S 7 which he proposes between approptla- ons for educational purposes and river and harbor appropriations, is fanciful and far-fetebed. SENATOR BROWN is no mean disputant, and we have rarely seen him at such manifest disadvantage os when Bayard, of Delaware, exposed the absurdity of this analogy. The Delaware Senator admonished him, that os long ago at 1820, the United States Supreme Court ha«l affirmed the constitutionality of the river and harbor appropriation, on the ground that the Federal government had the power to regulate commerce between the States. This decision, he further re marked, had been acquiesced in by all de partments of the government for a half centurv. It was like a third form bor at Rugby having his Latin syntax corrected by Thomas Arnold. But if there were no constitutional obstacle to the bill, its obvious ini|>olicy ought to insure its de feat. Such a line of policy as the disbursement is really without precedent in the history of the government. Many years ago there was a surplus revenue accruing from the sale of the public land. It was proposed to distribute this fund, for which the government had no present need, not as a free gratully, but ns an in definite loan. Some of our purest and wisest statesmen resisted the measure, as both unconstitutional and inexpedient. South Carolina refused outright to receive her quota. She was unwilling to lie subsi dized, or, what was scarcely less incompat ible with her dignity, to become a pen sioner of the Federal treasury. It is a burning shame that such manly independ ence is no longer dreamed of in our polit ical philosophy. But its impolicy is more striking for an other vital consideration. While we dis tinctly recognize the evils of illiteracy amongst the negroes, we are equally satis fied that universal education is no adequate remedy for universal suf frage. “There is no political alchemy,” as Huxley wisely observed, “by wh ch you can extract golden conduct from leaden instincts.” The negro’s intellectual ami moral advancement is limited by the in tellectual and moral capabilities of his race. The law of conformity to type will bring him to his |>ro|>er level, as certainly as the law of gravitation orings a stoue to the earth. Negro suffrage, not less a crime than a blunder, can only be corrected by such a modification as the public welfare shall de mand. Meanwhile, let us FROM ATLANTA. MKN and r the wake of conquering ai ), sundry „ .. . armies. From that time forward, sundry efforts in the Nbapc of constitut^nid amendments and civil rights bills, and at short intervals military intervention in the Democratic affairs of the Southern States, served to perpetuate this ruinous policy. Men who m respect to other questions are of unim peachable sanity, when they touch tins issue appear to have eaten of “that insane root which takes the reason prisoner." The latest aspect of tills craze is the EDUCATIONAL DILL OF SENATOR BLAIR. If this were an isolated measure, it might he treated with some forbearance. Bu such a conception argues an exceeding narrow view of the drift of the scheme it inaugurates and an utter misapprehension of the in tent of its principal advocates. Proper- |y understood, it is the smallest part of an Mministrativc policy, as well defined the American system of Mr. Clay. It means centralism, and, as a logical se quence, Ctcoorism. It leads totlio paternal government of Bismarck, which is only sustained by the memories of tiadowa and Sedan, the personal qualities of Kaiser Wilhelm, and a military establishment which is an incubus on German industries and a perpetual menace te neighboring nationalities. It Is at best a purblind statesmanship or a willful betrayal of pub lic liberty. This a strong statement, and yet we are reddy for its vindication. Let us for the present consider the matter apart from its obvious relations to other issues of the tariff— the reckless squandering of the public domain and the wasteful extravagance of river and liarbor appropriations, the pension list, all of which are a convenient pretext for oppressive taxation. An exorbitant internal revenue system has put one hun dred millions of surplus revenue in the Federal treasury. Instead of applying thin money to the extinguishment of our national debt, it is gravely proposed to divert It from this legitimate channel and disburse it to the fitates for educational purposes on the basis of illiteracy.

'The^H The Convention of Chemlets—Paine, Row land A Co.—Judicial Aspirants— On the Way--Speculation, 1 (FECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. I Atlanta, May 15.—The convention of chemists met in the Senate chamber at the capitol at 10 o’clock this morning and or ganized by calling to the chair Commis sioner Henderson, with Dr. Dabney, State chemist of North Carolina, acting as secre tary. The purpose of the conventfon is to agree upon a uniform method of determining the analysis and value of fertilizers. Upon the question, who shall be privileged to vote on propositions looking to that result, Dr. .Shephard, of Charleston, moved that only official chemists be allowed to vote. This motion created a lively discussion, and did not seem to meet the views of the ‘unofficial” chemists present, who consti tute a maiority of the convention. The motion was voted down. The convention proceeded at once to the discussion of matters pertaining to the special business of the meeting. It is by no means certain that they will accom plish a definite and satisfactory result, but it is to be hoped they will. There are some of the oldest chemists of the country present, and the result of their work, whatever it may be. will be of con siderable importance to the public. PAINE, ROWLAND A CO. I sent you last night the report that the Georgia Stock and Produce Exchange, of Atlanta, had closed doors and suspended business temporarily. The report is con firmed. Mr.Tains, senior member of the firm, informs your correspondent that the •us|»cnsion is only tenijiorary, and not due to any financial embarrassment. He states that the tronble is a difference with one of their customers, who claims that they owe him an amount which they deny and re fuse to pay. An application has been made to put the concern in the hands of a receiver, and a hearing will be had to-mor row. Mr. Paine claims tiiat the exchange will come out all right and be able to re sume business immediately. JUDICIAL ASPIRANTS. Congressional politics in the Fifth con tinue a kind of fifteen puzzle, which no '•an yet solve, except, of course, the several candidates. They are the only ones who are in no sort of doubt as to the result, and each can name the wiuning man with surprising promptness. I find in nearly every discussion touch ing the Congressional race some reference is made to Judge Stewart. It is under stood now, I believe, that he iv not n candidate for Congress, but a veiy strong impression prevails that he is looking to higher judi cial honors, and will 1* a candidate before the next Legislature for the Supreme Bench to succeed Judge Blnndford. whose term will expire. Judge Blandford will probably desire re-election, nml will be hard to retire. A contest between Judge Stewart and Judge Blaudford would stir the waters. It is also talked as a strong probability that Col. Boynton will bo pressed for the j udgeship ot the Flint circuit, to succeed . l udge Stewart. ON THE WAY. Architect Edbrooko telegraphs from Chicago that nil the duplicate plans for the new canitol arc now on their way to Atlanta, lie will probably not come c>n until the bids are opened, July loth. ENECULATIOX. There Is a great deal more speculation ■ the exchanges here than is generally supitosed. The same feverish desire to .gain wealth by the abort cut that prevails elsewhere pre vails here. 1 do not pretend to say that this species of gambling is on the in. rrease in Atlanta, but it appears to be in full awing. There are a great many who make only an occasional ventu.v. but there is a large class who make it a business and may be seen almost any hour watch- that bank and absolute confidence in its solvency, and there is great sympathy for them, the largest depositor of that class, I have heard of, is a widow, who had on deposit drawing a small interest, $5,500. Quite a number, I understand, were hysterical upon bearing the news of the failure. Mr. James was’on the street this morn ing, looking very coo] und impassive. He is a man of wonderful energy, and may et be able to meet his liabilities to the lie owns a vast amount c f valua- —Vermin can be effectually destroyed on flowers, plants and vines by the use of garden dust, from L.

There are many who have great faith in him, and believe he will round up all right. If lie should not, it would be a serious misfortune to Atlanta. The other banks have decided to co operate during the pressure, if it should become necessary, although they do not believe the situation demands it as yet. TOE BURNT CHILD. The people who seem most alarmed hbout their money are those who tot by the failure of the Citizens' Bank. One gen tleman, remembering his experience on that occasion, drew his balance oat of one of the banks, was paid a large part of it in specie, and had to hire a darky to help carry it to his office, where he deiiosited the precious burden in his safe, lie feels better. Among other speculations, it Is reported that James held several thousand shares of Memphis and Charleston, which lost him $25 per share. These are times when people who have no money feel perfectly easy, and con tern, plate with some degree of serenity the troubles of wealth. RESUMED. Paine, Rowland & Co., proprietors of the Georgia Stock and Produce Exchange of whom I have already written you, will resume business to morrow. They were closed upon an application made by Phelan, proprietor * another bucket shop to pi them in the bauds of a receiver. T|_ hearing was bad before Judge Hammond today and derided in favor of Paine, Row land Ik Co. The latter will file a suit for damages against Phelan for $50,000. Mr. Rowland informed me to night that his house is perfectly solid, and will re sume business to-morrow with a stronger hacking than ever. There has been no ap prehension among dealers with the house, who seem to have every confidence in the concern. Johu II. James states that while he does not know his exact status lie will pay 100 cents in the dollar. His liabilites. in the absence of any official statement, are ptoced anywhere from $300,000 to $000,000. CAMPAICN COMMITTEES PARALYZED.

Washington, May 13.—The Republican Congressional committee and such mem bers of the Republican national committee are in the city, held an important meet ing to-night to discuss a very set ious ob stacle which has arisen in the way ot their campaign work, and which is likely to cause a reorganization of the entire ma chinery of the Republican party through out the whole United States. In the civil service law which was passed last year, since any Coqgressional or na tionnl election has been held, there is a section (No. 11) providing “that no Senator or Representative or territorial delegate of Congress, or any officer or em ploye of either House, and no ex ecutive, judicial, military or naval officer of the United States, and no clerk or employe of any department of the gov ernment of the United States shall directly or indirectly solicit receive or in any man ner bo concerned in soliciting ami receiv ing any assessment, subscription or con tribution for any political purpose what ever from any emcer. clerk or employe of the United State* or from any person re ceiving compensation from any monevs derived front the treasury of the United States.” Section 14 of the same act la a repetition of the foregoing, but applies only to Con gressmen who are prohibited from receiv ing money or any valuable thing from any olllccr or employe of the government. Section 15 makes the pena'lr for the violation of these sections 45.000 fine and Imprisonment in the penitentiary for five years. Mr. Edward McPherson, secretary of the Congressional committee, baa just dlscov- eretT this provision of the civil service law, the significance of which does not apjwar to have been realized when it was under debate in Congress; and the matter was submitted to the national and Congression al committees to-night, which, after dis cussion, decided that Federal office-hold ers who are members of campaign com mittees should at once resign to save them- •elves from the penitentiary.
