The Radica papers charge that Tho defeat of the Constitution manufactured by to Black and Tan reconstruction convention in Ala Bama was owing to the threatened proscription of the conservatives and that the negroes Wero deterred from voting thereby. The fact in Tho Case do not justify the Radical charges of Frau Dan intimidation. The information a Ornas from the fronds of the reconstruction policy of co Gross that the failure to ratify the Constitution was owing to its objections Bio character. A correspondent of the on re Natl commercial writing from Montgomery under the Date of the 10th says a five Days were allowed to gather in the votes. Three of the Days we had Flou weather. Three times As Many polls were open As last year when the question of calling a convention was settled. If a negro found himself in u wrong county to was allowed to vote on making affidavit that he bed not voted elsewhere. The judges of election were radicals too conservative committee challenged a great Many votes but the election lasted so inn no voter was shut out on that account. The defeat is due to the deformities of the Constitution itself and a new election of one be or cred who prove it More plainly than Ever. In a present Shapo it will Uever be made the organic Law of a latins unless its endorsement by a negro minority be deemed sufficient by Congress. In this county of Montgomery the Radical stronghold where there Are three Blacks to one White fully too thousand negroes did not vote. As 1 saw for myself. The election Here was a fair one and the Radical made Tver Effort to Muster All no roes on the Rolls. In other counties some irregularities May have occurred but not extensive enough to account for the defeat. Of the �?~�&Quot>.000 Whites who voted for the convention probably less than 1,500 have voted for Tho Constitution. There was no a a a Connol Ranee in Force Quot about the Light. It was a Square Battle and a genuine this statement shows that it was not Only a fair election but that every facility was Given for voting. The polls were kept open five Days with three times Ai Many voting places As last year when the question of calling a convention was submitted. Every facility was Given by the military commander to gather in Tho votes of the negroes and yet with All these advantages a sufficient vote to ratify Tho Constitution could not be obtained. As to commercial correspondent says a it was a Square Battle and a genuine it is now proposed by senator Suek Mah to Force a Constitution upon a people that was rejected by them on account of its deformities and Ono which is so objectionable that it could not even obtain Tho full vote of the negroes themselves which would have Boon sufficient if All had voted for it to have secured its Diop Tion. But what cares the Radical Congress for this expression of the people the will or wishes of the voters of Alabama will be overridden to carry out the Radical programme of reconstructing the states to promote the interests of the Radical party in the presidential election. Tho government has been administered by the Radical party under a Rulo or ruin policy and it is Likely to to continued As Long As the people Alvo them the Power to do evil. The Harrow off debt. Horace has a horror of individual indebtedness and in his a recollections of a Busy life a now being published in the new York Ledger he eloquently urges Young men As they Vilue peace of mind a never run in debt to avoid pecuniary obligation As you would pestilence or ills advice upon this Point contains so much that is practical and valuable that we reproduce it for its moral both in Public and Provato affairs a if it be rugged fed that my whole indebtedness was at no Llano More than from $5,u0u to $7,000, 1 hav Only to say that even f1,000 of debit rum to him who keenly feels bin obligation to fulfil a very engagement yet is utterly without to of so doing and who Linda he Nacif dragged Oach week a Little deeper into h a Pousa ins ency. To be hungry ragged und penniless is not pleasant but it is nothing to the horror of bankruptcy. All Tho wealth of the Hoth Childs would f>9 a poor recompense for tic years a Trugolo with the that you had taken Tho Money or property of trusting tronds promising to return or pay for it when required Aud had betrayed their Cobi Deuce through insolvency. A 1 dwell upon this Post for i would deter others Troin entering that place of torments ii if the Young men in the country with Many old Onu ugh to know better would go Luto business a a that is into debt to Morrow h they could. Most poor men Are so ignorant a to envy the merchant or the manufacturer whose Lile is a incessant struggle with pecuniary difficultly who is driven to constant Obi Uulu a and who Iruin Mouth to Mouth barely evades insolvency which sooner or later overtakes most men in bus less so that it has been computed that but one in Twenty of them achieve a pecuniary Success. For my own part and 1 speak from experience�?1 would rather to a convict la a Suto prison a slave la a Rice swamp Tebuu to pass through life under Tho Harrow of debt. Let no Young Man misjudge him Seir Umlor Tunage or truly poor so Long a he has the use of uis limbs and faculties and is substantially free from debt. A hunger cold a is hard work Coute input suspicion unjust reproach Are debt is loud holy worse than them ail. Aud if it had pleased god to aware either or All of my sons to be the support Aud Polacc of my declining years Tho lesson which 1 should have most earnestly sought to impress upon them is this never run into debt avoid pecuniary obligation As you would pos hence or famine. If you have but fifty cents and can get no Moro for a week buy a Peck of Corn parch it and live on Llu is Ilion than owe a Man a of course i know that some men must do business that involves risks mad must often give notes end other obligation but 1 do not Cousido him really in debt who can Lay his hands directly on the Means of paying at some Little sacrifice All he owes 1 speak of real debt that which involves either risk or sacrifice on the one Side obligation or dependence of the other and 1 say irom All such let every youth humbly Pray god to preserve him evermore.�?�. We think that or. Geek sky has often written that National experience in the conduct of Public affairs is but the aggregate of individual experience and that a government should be administered upon the same principles that govern in the successful conduct of private a of Falls. The philosopher of the Tribune almost exhausts the vocabulary to express his horror of debt Ilo says it is worse than a hunger cold Ragi hard work contempt suspicion and unjust lie expresses himself even stronger than this in saying that the lesson which to would impress upon his own sons More earnestly than any other would be a to avoid pecuniary obligation a you would Pesll Lenoe or if individual indebtedness should be thus shunned ought Notpub-11c indebtedness to be avoided for the same consideration but or. Greeley make a distinction Between Public and private indebtedness. While regarding the latter m a horror that makes convict life in a state prison preferable he poems to regard the former in the Light of a Public Blessing. Would or. Greeley regard it a Manly for a father to accumulate a indebtedness which he Saya a hound be avoided Ai to would pestilence or famine to entail upon Hie children yet he argues in fever of funding our ener Mout National indebtedness and transmitting the Burden to our posterity. Tiow can he justify such a policy with the advice to the Young to keep from entering that place of Bree Otey indebtedness if Tho Harrow of debt la so terrible to to Boron would it not evince sagacity and Wisdom to got rid of the evil As soon As possible and what Justley in Ono generation what right in fact a to contract an enormous indebted Peutor another generation to pay if troubles arise which cause an onor Moue expenditure of Public Money should we hold posterity responsible for the ovals we brought upon ourselves if the lessons of or. Greeley upon the evils of debt so far As individuals Are concerned Are Correo in theory they will apply with equal Force to Public indebtedness and those who accept his theory in the first Case Only display cowardice the spirit of rep Slatton to my say in mortgaging the Industry of another Genor Atlon to pay the debts created by the present. Tit and. Sivonen Llis denunciation of Tao Prea dont Grant and tale Coward off fion Washington correspondent of to new York world after giving an account of the failure of the last attempt at impeachment in the reconstruction committee details the following conversation had with him immediately thereafter after the Ruth of a smears and politicians into or. Stevens room at the Cape Tol had ceased and very soon after the Defeated a great commoner Nad been borne in his chair from the Cape Tol to his Home the writer of these dispatches who had also been a witness examined in the presence of or. Stevens called upon him. He was received in a chamber where or. Stevens the dying Leader of a once powerful but now fallen National party leaned Back in an easy chair alone looking almost utterly exhausted. Nevertheless his Welcome was cordial and Bis expressed regret that or. Stevens might not feel Strong enough to Converse upon the subject in flow was alleviated at once by or. Stevens outspoken frat Knees. A a ill May Tai a proceeded or. Stevens a not particularly for publication. And yet a he continued Quot i done to object to your publishing anything 1 say. Ill say this that the whole question of impeachment lies almost in a nut a hell. As to the first part of the Grant and Johnson correspondence Johnson a letters 1 chiefly allude Toi think there is enough evidence to impeach a dozen men. The main Point is was Tho president guilty or not guilty of a violation or an attempted violation of the tenure of office lie is explicit enough himself on this subject. Although he Stateh in one place that he did not remove Stan fun and put Grant in with any reference to the tenure of office but upon the authority granted him by the Constitution what is to be said in Bis defense for Bis requiring Grant As the a both agree to in All Belr letters to arrange with him Johnson to keep Stanton out of office so ainu the will of the Senate the Senate had confirmed the tenure of office Law. What right had a president to deny defy or seek to disobey or circumvent that Law let an both the president and general Grant subscribe to this fatal fact that Grant had at least considered and that Johnson had insisted upon the proposition that Grant should help Johnson to keep Stanton out of office anyway notwithstanding the tenure of office if this direct attempt of the president to violate a Law made by the Congress of the United states does no to Render him liable to be impeached what does a a i am As you see or. Stevens Only a respectful listen it a Well then there a the whole thing. Its As simple As Day. What Tho a sell do 1 care about the question of Vera Ltd As they Call it Between Joonson and Grant that a nothing to do with the Law. Both of them May Call each other Lara. If they want to perhaps they both do lie a Little or let us say equivocate though the president certainly Lias the weight of evidence on his Side. But Johnson being right or Grant being wrong. It make no difference. If they want to Settle the question Between them they May both go out in the Back Yard and Settle it alone of course i have a slight objection to having that area soiled by either of them but 1 object if they would Only fix it so that we should have no More talk what i am alter is that the Law of these United slates is Astle by the Congress of there United state shall Leo obeyed by the president a Well As by All men beside. There was plenty of evidence Iod knows to convict Johnson last year. Its All nonsense and Folly to argue against to self cd tent proposition that there is More than plenty of evidence a a 1 suppose or. Stevens that you May have been a Little disappointed at my a a it not at All. That was right enough. In be told you already that the question Between Johnson and Grant Baa nothing to do with my idea of impeachment. They May fight Tea tout themselves. Grant my beat guilty As the president of a violation of or an admitted attempt to violate the Law but Grant Isnit on trial its Johnson whom we sve to consider and while we Are not talking of crimes Misdemeanour is enough and that is proven against a Well were you disappointed in the vote this morning by the commute a not a bit or. 1 know All the Coward in this Congress. Long experience Baa enabled me to Black Mark every one of them Damn them a a what then is at lat your opinion on Tho question whether or. Johnson will Ever be a sir a said or. Stevens with a bitter smile a i shall never bring up thl question of impeachment again. I am not going to Dally with that or any other committee in regard to it Uny at this moment a Secretary entered the chamber and 1 bade to great commoner Good Bye. He said As i took his hand a come sir. At any time. I shall always to glad to see and speak with you upon this and other subjects. I shrink from no revelation of my opinions or Fra rain from m Republican Souter. The new York times a Republican paper which professes to have some regard for the Constitution and its Observance in the legislation of Congress gets off the following readable sarcasm on current political events a a Texas paper the Boston Danner says that general Hancock has done More to revive a regard for the Union in the mind and hearts of the Southern people than All the offi oers and private of the United states array that is just what Congress insists that he must not do. He is not there to make the Southern people love the Union but to obey Congress with Lour and trembling. They Are rebel and if they love the Union it must be because the Union sympathise with their rebellion. They Are not expected to love it what be wanted is that they should hate it and denounce it and refuse to obey its Laws or pay la taxes. Then we shall have a Good excuse for depriving them of All political rights in the Union and handing them Over to the enfranchised a laves. The Banner has bit general Hancock a harder blow than it the coloured Voto of Tennessee is rapidly vindicating itself against All who distrust its capacity according to the statements of its friends. Rome doubts having been expressed that it would not Boas full or As strongly be. Publican at Tho next election a it was at the last the Nashville Tress silences All such apprehensions. The fact that the democrats have taken ground against negro suffrage settles that question for coloured voters a who a says the press a will not perplex Belr Heads about taxes foreign wars Bonds or any other question thick May interest White this is a promising beginning. Tho coloured voters will Only vote when Belr own immediate interest Are concerned. Such paltry questions As Bonds foreign wars and taxes which concern Only White voters they do not intend to trouble themselves about. A or. Belmont on tale Bond que cation. The new York world say the Missouri Democrat Tho Cincinnati commercial and other journals of lesser note la their desire to magnify Petty differences among democrats by which they Hope the Republican party May profit have taken to misrepresenting the opinions of Tho chairman of to National democratic committee or. August Belmont. Or. Belmont boy describe As i heavy Bondholder whom or. Pendleton s Greenback View of Tho governments indebtedness affright. Doubtless or. Belmont is a Bondholder Ai or. Pendleton himself is said to be giving therefore a considerable pecuniary pledge of the sincerity of his opinions. But or. Belmont toe regret to say is of or. Pendleton a opinion in regard to the payment of the principal of the Jive twenties in greenbacks though differing from that statesman a to the importance of it As a practical question now or for some years to come. The statement of the Missouri Democrat that a Belmont and other Eastern democrats lost pretty by ally in rebel Bonds a is a scurrilous slander. The correspondence Between or. Belmont and the treasurer of Pennsylvania and the history of governor Seymour a administration in now York show that what losses East and democrats have had have been inflicted upon them As the holders of the Bonds of the Northern states by the it Roomy Lolly party founded of the a a great moral ideas of cheat both in constitutions and contracts. £7 the journal says a a retrenchment is now the watchword at it May be the watchword Bat in the face of the fast that Ute a bile debt a increased Nineteen millions of dollars daring the month of january it is a very delusive one.

Tha wrong Ann we aae of by our Indiana exo Banges that colonel a. J. Hawke of the new Albany commercial la a prominent candidate before the Hep Billoan state convention to assemble at Indianapolis on tha Florb for auditor of Sute with a fair Prospect of being the Munfor to Nate nominee. If connection with one of the Moat pestilent pugnacious irascible and unreasonable Republican papera in the Sute be any recommendation then he should have the nomination. The new Albany commercial though a Good new Asper 1e politically like the niggers mule it kicked out constantly at both ends and be Etsu in the Middle. Talking of kicking reminds be in that connection of a Good joke on colonel Hawke which now that the Acerbi ties of the last Campaign have passed away he will Pardon us for telling. In fact. It la too Good to be allowed to die in this Day of Radical loyalty and Republican purity. The Campaign vol amp a was intensely exalting to our friends Over the River. No paper had More to say about Ken Tacky importations and fraudulent Louisville than the new Albany commercial. Republicans were warned loudly and often to be on their guard against the incursions of the dreadful rebels South of the Ohio. Colonel Hawke was chairman of the District Republican committee. A was a Busy and As anxious As a maternal Ben with a Large Brood of Ohl kens. I a run a a old Des and took charge of the whole business. His anxiety his watchfulness hit trepidation and his troubles increased As election Day Drew near and the arrival of the imported rebel Vouge became a certainty. It is whispered with How much truth we know not that the valiant and watchful Radical colonel engaged in a Nice Little game himself for the purpose of Check mating the pestilent rebels it is rumoured that for a consideration quite anum Ber of willing souls from Louisville were induced logo to new Albany and vote tha Cleau Radical Loyal ? ticket. Thus Saith Madam Rumor. We do not pretend to know nor to say. How much Cona Estloa colonel Hawke had with this Nice Little patriotic arrangement. Election came around and with it All the patriots. Early St the polls with a determined air and the mein of conscious innocence and sturdy virtue appeared our valiant Friend colonel Hawke. Every voter with the least appearance of Kentucky on his person was promptly challenged. Not a few la old men Wero deterred from voting and several who failed to have the a a papers a were in contingently hustled from the polls. The colonel was vigilant. The colonel was car Lisa.

They course three democratic victories in one Day will do. Not that they arc so great in Point of numbers but they indicate unmistakably the Drift of popular sentiment.

A similar change throughout Tho state will give us 100,000 majority Lor our presidential candidate. Friends let us. Try for it trip off Liento Newalla to Surat fat off Magellan a visit from Pata ionian i nil tans and colonel George Mcdougal. A letter from Captain George Brown United states Navy in command of tic japanese ram Stonewall received last week by Bis Mother dated Valparaiso january 6, gives an interesting account of the cruise of that vessel from Montevideo to Valparaiso through Tho Strait of Magellan. After leaving Montevideo she encountered three severe gales before reaching the Straits which she Success fully what hired. Tho letter say a on the third Day after 1 got to a Anchorage inside of the Straits Large Polios of patagonian indians were seen on Shore. They made signals to a and i sent Ray first lieutenant. With a party of my a Well armed to communicate with them. After about an hours absence the bout returned Batug on Board an Indian chief about seven feet tall and what 1 thought to he a White Man. 1 was soon convinced that 1 was right Lor As the party Carao on Board the lieutenant said a Captain Here is a gentleman from Indianapolis c Oil Sci i of course recognized Georgo Mcdougal. To had on the roughest clothe badly patched that 1 have Ever seen on Man. Lio stayed on Board about two Houra during which time i fitted him out with All Tho warm of lobes be wanted a Quantity of Modl clues and a number of Ucb Small articles a would be useful in the Camp. Of course he asked about everybody at Home and would often have to wipe tears from his eyes. He went on Shore not expecting to see me again but promised to have sent me some game in the eve lung. About six of clock the party with Tho game came Down to the Bank. 1 sent a boat in the game Cane off and so did colonel Mcd Jugal. Be said that he had hundreds of questions to ask me and that if i could not Send him on Shore there that he would go on with me to the next stopping Placo. 1 could not land him again nor did i care to on the contrary i wanted him to go to Valparaiso with me. A the Day he came on Board i started through the Narrows and that night reached the chilian settlement and Leaai Colony at Sandy Point. Colonel Mcd. Was with me four Days in All and 1 Learned much More of his movements during the last three or four years than i can find time to write about. I will however Eay that to left Mexico about four years ago and that Jie Baa since then been in Peru chill Buenos Ayres and two years among the indians who inhabit the country touch of the la Plata. He is prospecting fsr Gold and i am satisfied that he is certain to find it near 8andy Point. He was looking Well and though at times dejected seemed to feel that he would soon see Petteff times. Dung the Lew Days that he was with me x completed an excellent outfit for him. And gave him some Money to get such articles As i could not Supply. When he came on Board a iad not eaten anything but games no bread or vegetables a for three months the game being the meat of the Ostrich and Guanaco the latter a wild animal not unlike the Llama of Peru and in taste very much like Venison.

Its yourself that paid me five dollars for that the shout that went up stopped All further discussion of the subject. Some of the colonels political enemies Are ungenerous enough to aay that he not knowing his own Louisville importations had kicked from the polls a Man whom to bad paid five dollars to come there.
