THE PRESIDENT'S PLAN.
In the criticisms upon the policy of
the Administration toward the unor
ganized States, there has been often a
tone of censure as if it were too hasty
and would commit the Government to
an action which the country would not
approve. It was urged, also, that the
President ought to anesmble Congress
id consider the question of reorganization.
But we have always endeavored to
show what is now proved, that the
course of the President was tentative
and not final. It was, as General Lo
gan justly defined it, an experiment.
The country is committed to nothing.
The first cardinal point to be ascertain
ed was the real disposition of the dom
inant class in the -rebel States. Upon
that everything depended. Was it
trust-worthy? as it such that the
hand of the United States could be soon
and entirely withdrawn?
The President has never said to the
people n the unorganized States whom
he sunvnoned to act, "Do this and that,
and tten the States will be restored as
befon. He has merely said and re
peatei: "Certain things are obviously
necessary in any reconstruction. Now,
then, let us see what you propose." If
he had said, after ihe surrender of the
rebel armies, "Now do so and so, and
you ihall be as you were," there would
have been no discretion. Those to
whom he appealed would have com
plied categorically with the conditions.
The representatives would have come
to Congress. The foolish advice of
witldrawing all the national forces
wocld have prevailed, and the late reb
el Sates would have been restored to
their full relations in the Union before
the disposition of the people in them
was known. !
Now by the course of the President
j this disposition has bee:.f;;!!y t?vj?.Ij;.'.
the late rebels rope. The consequence
was, that those to hom his proclama
tions appealed at the south showed ex
actly what they thought and hoped, ar.d
the Democratic party at the North, sup
posing that the late rebels were to re
turn upon their own terms, opened in
fall cryfor what they called the Presi
dent's policy. That policy as now ap
pears, was simply an experiment to
ascertain if the late insurgents could
be trusted; and the result is before ths
So, also, if the President had called
Congreis together in an extra session
to prescribe conditions, Congress itself
could not have acted intelligently. But
now, when it meets, it understands ex
actly the spirit with w hich it has to deal.
That spirit is hostility to the Union, and
to all wao have been faithful to it.
The following is one of the most tru
ly eloquent passages ever spoken. It is
from a speech addressed by Andrew
Johnsor, in April '64, to a Mass Meet
ing of tie people of Knoxville and vi
cinity. "Mycountrymer,! my heart yearns
toward you, I am ono of you, I have
climbed yonder mountains rock ribbed
and gloving in sunshine, in whose gorg
es, in vhose cuvern jour sons, hunted
like betsts, have fallen to rise no more.
I do ncr speak of these things to draw
your teirs. It is nut the time for tears,
but for blows. I speak of them that I
may fin your arms for unconquerable
fight. And I speak of them because
the mountains seem to talk to me. My !
house is among the mountains, and,
though it is not far away, I cannot go to
H. It is the place where I met and
'oved and married her who is the moth
er of my children. Do I not love the
mountains then? And if liberty is to
expire, and if freedom is to be distroy
ed, if my country in all its length and
breadth is to tremble beneath the op
pressor's tread, let the flag, the dear old
flag, the last flag be planted on yon
rocky heights, and upon it 1p' "ere be
this inscription: "ITe is the end of all
that is dear o the heart, and sacred to
memory of man!"
JfcSThe principle of an academy
gave a pupil who was an aspirant for
the situation of school teacher, a cer
tificate which said; "This young man is-
capable of filling any position for which
ha is qualified."
At a meeting of the friends of im
partial suffrage, held in the city of
Washington, on Tuesday evening,
Aug. 29, 1S65, a committee was ap
pointed to prepare a report, which at a
subseqent meeting was unanimously
approved. The following is the
No one vv!io has observed attentively
the history cf our beloved country for
the past few years but will be struck
bj one significent fact, which Hands
out prominent in the history cf the
great rebellion, i. e., that in so far as
our rulers fa-led to discern or failed to
decree justice to the weak, in that pro
portion did failure and disaster attend
the national cause. Defeat followed
defeat until, as a last resort, our mar
tyred President, Lincoln, issued his
Proclamation of Emancipation. Short
ly thereafter colored men were called
into our armie?, were clothed in the na
tional uniform, and fought bravely in
tha ranks to achieve the freedom of
which they and their race had for gen
erations beer deprived. Then came
victory to our flag, and finally success,
the utter suppression of the armies in
rebellion, and the defeat of the men
who had gloried in making slavery the
corner-stone of the so-called confeder
acy. Since the oppression of the rebel
lion a great work is to be done in or
der to secure its fruits to the heirs of
the brave men who achieved the victo
ry. Many thousands of colored men
residing in the South, destitute in great
part of enlightened education, but loyal
to the country, are anxious to exalt her
interests and secure their own welfare
by exercising the right of suffrage.
Shall they be denied this privilege?
Sincerely believing in the great doc
trine enunc'ated in the Declaration of
Independence, that all "men are crea't-
me Creator with certain inalienable
rights, among which are life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness," and that
the preamble to the Constitution of the
United States declares the purpose for
which it was ordained, we hold that
our liberties will bw best secured by
equal and impartial suffrage, the grant
ing to every man of suitable age,
guiltless of crime, the right to vote.
We alarm this to be our deliberate
conviction, not hastily or inconsiderate
ly formed ; but. while thus declaring,
knowing the prejudice in many minds
against granting this privilege to igno
rant men, should there be any who
favor only a qualified or partial suf
frage to men who may iu their opinion
have attained sufficient education, to ex
ercise it intelligently, we will gladly
co-operate with them in advocating a
limited grant, as a step in the right di
rection. Any restriction, however,
should be made to all classes of citizens
alike and not to men cf any particular
color or nationality. It is well known
that our lamented President Lincoln
favored the extension of the privilege
to intelligent colored men, and, had he
lived, he would doubtless have endeav
ored to secure its adoption.
Republican institutions should be
founded on the virtue end intelligence
of the people, and, in establishing a ba
sis which shall bo firm and enduring,
the rights cf fill men rhould be respect
ed and recognized. The spirit of caste
should be frowned drwn, and the ef
fort to establish a privileged class re
buked. Ivjual right6, equal laws,
virtue, education, intelligence. Let
these be established ; let each man be
willing to grant to e.very other man the
rights and privileges which he claims
for himself, then shall our country oc
cupy a proud pre-eminence among the
nations of the earth. Our lani shall
become the heme of the oppressed of
all nations, aad the blessings of Him
who is "no respecter of persons," but
who "hath mide of one blood all nations
of men to dwell 011 the face of the
whole earth," will descend upon us aud
upon our children.
Awfcl. The following startling
threat was made use of the other day,
by an excited pugilist.
"I'll twist yon round your own neck,
and ram ycu down your own throat,
until there is nothing left of you but the

A WORD FOR XEWSPAPEKS.
We clip the following article from an
exchange. It is true, and we commend
it to every man who has an interest
where he resides:
Nothing is more common than to
hear people talk cf what they pay news
papers for advertising, &c, as bo much
given in charity. Newspapers, by en-
hancingthe value of property in their
neighborhood, b.nd giving the localities
in which thv rtp nub! Uherl h rpnuiatinri
abroad, benefit all such, particularly if
they are merchants or real estate ovvu-
ers, thrice the amrunt- vearly of the
meagre sum they pay for their support.
Besides, every public spirited citizen
lias a laudable pride in having a paper
cf which he is not ashamed, even
though he should pick it urlin Washing-
ton or New York.

FREE L. A St OK IX TEXAS.
A gentleman, recently from Texas,
te'ls of a planter, of Washington county,
who Lad a plantation of half a league,
two thouand two hundred and fourteen
acres, eight hundred of it under fence.
In the summer of this year his negroes
left him with his crop a little more than
oae-hajf picked out. The planter of.
fered his plantation, with the unpacked
portion of. the crop, for sixteen thou-
man families purchased it, and tvt-Iit
immediately to picking out the remain
der of the crop, which nets sufficient to
pay for the pla nation and so r.e im
provement in buildi.g- cheap dwell
ings. The property t0 be divided
into fourteen farms, and -he plantation
mansion converted into a s010ol house.
This does not look as though while
people need be helpless on the rv;h, soil
of Texas without slavery. We sju!d
not be surprised to learn that these in
dustrious German families, with the;
assistance of such colored help as they
may be able to hire, will have made
three times the amount of cotton next
year than has ever been made befors
on this plantation.
A HorErui Sign. It is a singular)
fact, says, the Nashvile Banner, that so
great is the demand for school books in
the South, thatthe Northern publishers,
to fill their orders, are compelled to send
a large amount of their press work to
Washington city. In all, ever twenty
presses in Washington are engaged in
printing these books. The prices
charged for press work in that city are
20 percent, mere than in the northern
cities. One retail dealer in school
books here sold Sl-5,000 worth last
month to Southern book-sei!er.
Three-fourth of all that gj South are
sold to negroes.
