i One of the chsrges thrt the Kinneyites
made against Samuel G. Daily, last sum
raer was; that" 'he' opposed the confirma

did gre'it injustice to the Nebraska First.
That if Thayer was confirmed, : it would
cause nearly' one hundred promotions in
our regiment. Gen. Thayer has been a
Brigadier now for jfive months, and the
41 hundred promotions" have dwindled
down to three. Lt. Col. Livingston, to
be Colonel, Major Baumef, to be Lt.
Col. and Capt. Blacker, to be Major.

' Remabk 2d. Is it only the direct or
reflected action of, the solar beams, with
in the torrid zone, which blackens both
the brain, the blood and the humors of
the Africans; oris there any other con
nected or added to that physical cause ?
1. It is pretended that the decendants
of the - Portuguese went to, and fixed
I their residence in the heart of Africa
towards the year 1450, are become per
fect, negroes as to the color, the wool of
the head and of the beard, and, the fea
tures of the pysiognomy; that the de
cendants of the Arabs, who invaded a
part of equinoctial ' Africa in the seventh
century, are become real negroes and that
they cannot be distinguished, from the" in
habitants of Senegal and Angola: that
ihe decendants of the Jews, who. tfier'the
ruin of their nation, fled into the1 south
ern provinces of Africa and Asia, have
all been metamorphosed more or leas in
to negroes, in proportion to the degree
of the heat of the country in which they
fixed their residence. If all these fact3
were certain., and, moreover, if it were
certain thai those Portuguese, those Jews
and those Arabs, have not crossed their
race with the negro race, it would be de
monstrated that the heat of the climate is
the true physical cause of the variety of
hue, in the human species ; and it' would
be the opinion preferred by us, were it
better grounded by proofs and facts.
2d. But it seems certaia that the ne
groes, - who propagated ; between them
selves in cold countries, never lose their
soot-or eboq color; that the whites, in
the most burning climates of Africa and
Asia, although becoming to & certain de
gree, more tawny, never become like ne
groes, "nor like moors ; that the moors,
after having flourished for as many as
twenty or twenty-two generations in
Spain; left it with the same color which
their parents had when they came to it ;
-thai the negroes who live for SSOjrearn
in the cold or temperate countries of
America, have lost nothing of the spe
cific signs which characterize the. sub
stance of -their brain, of their blood, of
their humors, of their skin, of their head,'
and of their hair.
3. Heoco it results that to the influence
of climate must be added the influence of
some other cause, in order, to metamor
phose the whites into negroes, or moors ;
and by supposing; the white race to be
the primitive race, it seems that that cause
ought to have been in a more or less re
mote time, some, unusual disease whofe
consequence have been transmitted from
parents to children.
We know that the human species is li
able to an unconceivable number of indis
positions, of capricious diseases,? which
successively make their . appearance on
earth; cow with, the same symptoms, then
with symytoms' totally different ; and of
which we may read the history in the
works of the naturalists and of the phys
iologists, of diverse ages. Among these
indispositions, and whimsical diseases,
there have been arid there are still occa
sionally,', some" which, metamorphose al
most suddenly unexpectedly, -a wMtemnri
into a moor, with respect to color, as we
may convince ourselves of - the' fact in a
number of works, and in particular in the
works "of a celebrated physician and sur
geon, who combined, in his speculations
and researches, experience to theory,
This is Mr.' La Cat's Treatise on the color
of iKt human skin, in particular that ofthe
negroes aud oh the metamorphoses of one of
these colors nto anotherj either vcctdently
or at the tnomtntof birth- -' i . i.-'
'.' It is proved by a number of facts which
cannot be suspected and contested (as
any one may see both in the works we
have quoted and in. a number c other
works whose authority cannot be equivo
cal 'and doubtful) that in' Ethiopia; negro
parents give birth .to white children" who
remain white, and that elsewhere white
parents give birth to black children ; with
this diffeence;, however, that it happens
more frequently that negro 'parents give
birth to white chilareni tnan it happens
tnat .white parents give birth to black
children: that ; which is a proof that the
'white 'color is the primitive1 color of men,
that the black color is but a, degenera
ted color, and that 'occasionallyi among
the moors, nature seems to retake her
rights,' as we may say. among the Ethi
opians, she seems,' sometimes ta forget
herself. Whatever may be this specula
tion; and conjecture, the . fact, is certain
and : incontestable; and this fact, viz: the
mclambrphosis of color from white to black
and from black io white,' is "air that is in
teresting and decisive on , tbe present
THus the different color; among men,
may tome primitively eiiherfrom disease

iti 'still, ' occasionally, proceed in both
ways. ',... ...
;4. . The explanation of this phenomen
on of the change cf one color into the
other,Jraay interest physics and medicine.
Our idea on the subject is as follows:
' Lei that mucous juice" (pigment cells)
rele mucosum, which affords nutriment to
and blackens the skin of the negro, fortu
itcusly get rid, by means of some intern
al revolution, of those black atoms which
natuaHy color it; or in retaining !them,
let it cease, by the narrowing of. the in
ternal channels by which it is conducted,
and cf the internal corpscles cf the skin;
which receives it, to carry, under the ep-
iJermus, those coloring atoms ; the negro,
shall loose his fifie black hue, and shall
become of an ashy or whitish color.

..The shrewdesl. and most far-seeing of
the politicianshere regard the recent leg
islation in reference to the Government
finances as -worth more towards washing
cut the rebellion than a hundred battles.
It insures to the Government alUbat is
needed to keep the machinery moving un
til July, 1664, and will tend greatly to
restore public confidence in the ability of
the United States to meet all obligations.
It is now known to be the intention of
Mr. Chase to avoid issuing a single dol
lar more of legat tender, if possible, and
bis fixed purpose is to check any inflation
of the currency, and to reduce by every
expedient the;extraordinaryprice of gold.
It - is estimated that the receipts into the
Treasury will be sufficient in excess of
the ordinary expenses of the Government
to pay off the whole debt, on' thelst cf
July, 1864,' will be only equivalent to the
net profits of the loyal States for one
year, and the annual appropriation of one
tenth of these net profits will extinguish
the debt in ten years. : This .remarkable
state of facts has already aroased an in
creased' confidence in public securities.
Subscriptions to the five-twenties loan,
which for several weeks past had almost
entirely ceased, are now coming in and
daily increasing. The increase in these
subscriptions has been so great that it is
estimated they will average two hundred
thousand dollars per day within the pres
ent month, v. ..,.,..-: 1
