“Under Which Kino, Bkzomian ?”—The
“Democratic friends of the NortH” are at
cross purposes.. In the West they are
howling for Repudiation. In New Eng
land they arc damning Repudiation to
everlasting perdition. Thus it will be sees
that their printiples respecting tbeNation-
al debt depend very much upon how their
spare funds are invested. This is good
Democratic doctrine. Selfishness has ever
been their motto. They care about as much
for the South or the Southern people, as
they do for the King of Dahomeny. They
would gladly get us into another fight, and
then appropriate money to whip us out.—
They are a Janus-faced set; wholly un
worthy the confidence of a true and hon
Mr. Johnson ano tub South.—Presi
dent Johnson has repeatedly advised those
Southern men who so zealously support
his policy to appeal to the courts for satis
faction, if they feel that the military au
thorities have deprived them of any of
their rights. He has been particularly
pointed in giving this advice to parties
pardoned under his recent Amnesty Proc
lamation; and they have obtained per
mission from him to report his state
In several instances his friends assumed
the authority from the permission to re
peat, to put them in writing, and one of
them has been seen by the Washington
correspondent of the New York Times,
headed, “To whom it may concern,” which
embraces opinions about as follows:
The President stated to the writer that
he could not reopen registration without
incurring certain risk of impeachment, al-
thongh he had been advised to do so by
some of the most earnest supporters of his
policy, who argued that if he assumed the
power to do so under his authority as
Commandcr-in-Chief, giving orders to mil
itary subordinates, he would be supported
bv ibe Constitution-loving and law-abi
ding Jportion of the people. On the other
hand, other equally warm supporters of his
policy had advised him that if lie attempt
ed to assert his military power in din- ting
the manner of the execution of civil du
ties imposed on military authorities by a
direct act of Congress, lie would be assum
ing authority not vested in his office, either
by the Constitution, the articles of war. or
by any law now in existence, lie also
stated'that the promulgation of the Am
nesty Proclamation would result, if prop
erly managed, in disrupting the Republi
can party, because if the courts decided as
be thought they should, that the classes
pardoned bv it were restored to their full
rights as citizens, and the leaders of tiiat
party would persist in supporting the mil
itary authorities in their refusal to allow
them to register, the natural consequence
would lie that the people would flock to
the support of the judiciary.
It will be observed that, according to this
statement, the Proclamations of the Presi
dent were nothing more nor less than elec
tioneering documents, and that they were
designed only for the campaign. This is
the way he trifles with the vital interests
of the Southern people.
THE NORTHERN ELECTIONS.
Opinions of the Press.
The N. Y. Times says that the elections in
dicate no increased confidence in the Demo
cratic party, but signify a reaction against
the extreme acts and measures of the Re
publican party, and convey an admonition
which ought to be salutary to political
The Herald says: “The recent elections
do not denote Democratic victories, but
that the Republican element of the coun
try has stepped aside to rebuke its leaders.”
The Cincinnati Commercial says: “In
addition to the assistance of Andrew John
son, the extreme men in Congress have had
the use of the Democratic party as an
awful example and ever-present terror.—
The moderate masses of the people have
been driven, to make choice between the re
actionary policy’of the Democratic party,
rampant and unrepentant, with all its in
iquities on its head, and the policy of the
extreme Radicals. When there is no al
ternative between going with the rebels or
Radicals, the choice of intelligent and pa
triotic people is, of course, to go with the
“But there is a popular weariness as to
fighting the old battles of the war over all
the time. There are some other things to
think about. We begged Ben. Wade to
stop the torrent of personal vituperation
and partisan violence long enough to talk
a little about some of the new issues which
were particularly important here. Noth
ing could be got out of him but the same
old ding-dong. The third officer of the
Government, Mr. Speaker Colfax, gave us
but a very small amount of instruction in
proportion to the latitude and longitude of
his discourse, and indulged in an unseemly
and untimely threat of hanging the first
officer of the Government. The efficacy of
such indiscreet harangues is seen in the
election returns from Ohio. Something
beside war talk will be wanted hereafter.”
President Making.—A Washington let
ter of the 8th says: “The evening Admin
istration organ here announces that the
meeting for the ratification of the nomi
nation of Andrew Johnson for President,
ana Gen. William T. Sherman for Vice
President, which was appointed for the 10th
inst,, has been postponed until the 18th
proximo, when it w ill be held in the Cap
itol. Tbe announctmeut is made with a
great splurge of italics and small caps, and
creates considerable surprise, as but few
people kuew that such nominations were
ever made. The fact is, that the Louisiana
political bushwhackers, who have been
here off and on for nearly a year trying to
oust all the Federal office-holders in the
Pelican State, got on a spree at Crystal
Springs 6ome month since, and resolved
themselves into a political party, number
ing, all told, not over a baker’s dozen, and
made tiie nominations. They agreed that
they would meet at some future occasion
for the purpose of ratifying their action,
but. unfortunately for their object, a few of
them got sober and failed to come to time.
The result was that the bottom fell through
and the new party of the future went to
Editors Opinion: The Intelligencer of yes
terday morning, in its notice of the pro
ceedings of the Georgia M.E. Church takes
occasion to copy the following paragraph
from the Enterprise (Miss) Star:
In this connection, we desire respectful
ly to enquire if the Rev. Mr. Talley refer,
red to above, is the same to whom allusion
is made below, in the paragraph we clip
from the Enterprise (Miss.) Star:
“A friend has just stepped in who gives
us the following as a practical test of the
sincerity of the newly converted Radicals.
We recommend its general adoption by
those of our colored people whose votes
and influence the Radicals are endeavor
ing to obtain by a regular system of equal
Rev. Mr. Talley, of the Montgomery
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South, who is a “weak vessel,” has
been bought up by the emmissaries of the
Northern Methodist Church. In the igno
rant zeal of a new convert, who. of course,
wished to render some service for his raon-
ney,he went into Summerfield district, over
which Dr A. H. Mitchell presides and began
the propagation of the perfect equality doc
trine among the colored people. This
equality was carried beyond Beyond; and
as the legitimate result, was lionized by
An old gentleman of the white persua
sion, residing in the neighborhood where
this missionary of equality was laboring,
saw proper to doubt Mr. Tallev’s sincerity,
and told a favorite boy—an old-time house
and body servant, who had placed great
confidence in Mr. Talley as a sincere equali
ty man—that he bad as well keep his mo
ney—if he intended to give Mr. Talley any
—until he could test his sincerity. A new
idea struck Jack. Mr. Talley was to stay
all night at Jack’s master's. When hd re
tired to bed, Jack accompanied the rever
end turncoat to his room and held bim in
long conversation on tbe equality doctriney
until Mr. Talley was fully committed to it,
and. thoroughly sleepy, he took off his coat
ready for bed; so did Jack. Boots came
next; so did Jack’s. “ What are you up
to?” quoth Mr. Talley.
“Nuffin ’tall, sir. Eeg going to be *down
to’ somefin. dat’s all,” replied Jack.
“What’s that you are going to be “down
to ?’ ” saith his reverence.
“Well, I’se going to bed wid you, dat’s
all dere is about it. I is jes as good as you
is, accordin to the Lord’s gospel by you,
and 1 is tired of sleeping wia myself in the
shuck pen. So I is gwine to sleep wid you
in master’s bed,” said Jack.
Mr. Talley took a deliberate, indignant
survey of Jack from head to foot, slowly
put on Ms clothes, went to the stable, bri
dled and saddled his horse, and left that
ilk a sadder and a wiser man.
The writer had the honor of meeting and
making the acquaintance of the reverend
gentleman in this city a few days ago, and
believes that the Editor of the Intelligencer
never would have permitted so gross and
palpable a calumny to appear in the col
umns of his paper, if he had taken the
trouble to ask either Mr. Harrison or Mr.
Crumley, of this city, who is J. M. Talley.
The “so-called” joke is false, and was cat
out of whole cloth to suit the purposes of a
certain set of men, who can see no good
outside of their own narrow circles.
But seriously. Mr. Editor. It strikes me
that if the gentlemen who control the
columns of the Intelligencer would only
take off their smoked spectacles, they
would see in Atlanta a lot of Wue-eyed,
kinky-headed niggers that were bleached
out by somebody. long before the Radical
party had any existence. Instead of try
ing to Injure the character of a noble-

Junius Letters.—The discussion rela
ting to the identity of the author of Juni
us' Letters, lias been reopened. Dr. J
Craig, of Mobile, Ala-, writes to the Round
TaMe, scouting the idea of identifying Sir
Philip Francis with the Nominis Umbra.
I >r. C. says “the Franciscans have not an
inch of solid ground to stand upon in that
controversy,” and maintains the Lyttletoni
m» theory as convincingly established.
On the other hand, we see it announced
that the memoirs of Sir Philip Francis are
i}*out to be published by Mr. Herman Me-
rivale—of tlie poet of that name and
brother of the historian of the Roman Em
pire—and that Mr. Thurlow Weed, who
has examined the materials, declares that
this work will conclusively establish the
identity of Junius and the qarrelsome bar
The Junius letters are chiefly remarka
ble for the successful concealment of the
name of their author. They were publish
ed in a London newspaper iiefore the
American Revolution; have since had a
]ar‘*e run in book form; the Havana of both
continents have puzzled their learned
heads to identify their author; but his

In case the court refuses to grant the writ,
he will appeal to the Supreme Court of the

in the pardon accorded by the President

would remain on tbe farm and defend
what they considered their property against
all comers. Steps will be taken to eject
them by civil process. There has been no
