1 Old Errors.
The acknowledgment of wrong by a wrong
doer is something so rare that men chroni
icle the fact as worth remembering and the
' sacred writers mention the "prompt confes-
jBiori of sins as something savoring of entire
1 regeneration and change of a man's whole
nature. Nations are much like individuals,
and for one people who admit sinful error
to have been a part of past policy, we can
point to hundreds of Egyptians who persist
in folly and crime until God's judgment de
stroys the wicked and their works. To day
the Southern people in ashes and tears con
'fesg their 'sins, and strive to amend, but a
few persistent maniacs again seek to revive
old errors, and like the author of "Chival
rous Southrons " in the Southern Review at
tempt the Quixotic folly of attacking all the
world for believing that the crushed out
Southern Jdeas were entirely wrong and con
demned by the spirit of the age as well as
by common, reasoning.
Like all his class pf weak minded bab-
biers, the author of the defence of " chiv-
airy " belieyes assertion to be more than ar
gument, and if the assertion exalts his doc-
trines, whims or fancies by slandering the
believers in opposite ideas ; why the very
acme of argument has been 'reached and
away goes our cracked-brained antagonist
i into spasms of delight over another South
ern victory." i
Passing much' of a character peculiarly
speculative! and' of no valuo fisla matter for
argument, we desire to accept the following
statements as worthy of examination ot our
hands : j ;
Whilst the Southern (States were in the
the Union of the United States, the dignity
and decorum of the members of Congress in
debate especially in the Senate were no
torious throughout the world. What is their
bearing now, and since the Southern mem
bers are no longer present to restrain those
of the .North? No assembly of any civil
ised people in the world can equal them in
vulgarity, or in depravity either, if the re
- ports niade in Congress, showing their venal
ity, are true. This is the result of Northern
civilization : and one ot the reasons they
arc bo intent on excluding Southern repre
sentatives who truly represent the Soutjh, is
. that they fear a return to the old responsi
bilities by which their vulgar and .brutal
licentiousness of language ; might be re
strained. Southern civilization made Con
gress respectable; Northern civilization has
made it contemptible. j
" Whilst the Southern States were in the
-Union" while they were out of the Union
and had no " baso born Yankees" to come
betwixt the air and their nobility what
was the case ? We who know aught of the
meetings of the Confederate Congres3 at
Richmond Jcnow of more violence ; more
breaches of decorum " especially in the
Senate," and such evidences of " vulgaritv"'
and " depravity" that the government rer
fused to permit the press to publish how
Hill killed ' Yancey ; how coarse vitupera
tion, and frenzied debate, caused members
of both houses to fight in and around the
Confederate Capital like wild beasts!
. Mr. Hill and we believe ex-Confederate
General Hill to be the author of the absurd
statements conveyed in the article we quote
The East and the West Distracted Democracy.
The old time reference to the wisdom oi the The unfortunate uncertainty of democratic
East is but little understood by pur Western leaders, who know not what to select for a
Chinamen who persist shutting themselves
within the walls of their national conceit
and who see naught but the cell! in which
they have shut up all of wisdom', glory or
strength possible for such narrow minds
and contracted souls to comprehend.
Ot the days when earth was young we re
member reading, and of the " wise men of

to thus complain :
Then agin, our management hez been
friteful. In Ohio, we made a boggle at the

of the olden time inhabitants cf the earth ;
our minds have always paid homage to the

land where the arts and sciences had their

hurrahs stuck in their throats. I must con

but they looked sick- while they did it.
Their efforts to hurrah for Rosecrans, and
the face they made uv it, remirded me uv
an insident wich occurred to me wunst.
I hed a friend whose name it was own,
who wuz given to indulgence in the flowin

With the merest drippings cf wisdom

gates to the energetic sons of our own land,
how greatly must we be benefitted The
assurance given to the better classes of Mon

probably bring to our shores a most, valua

One more quotation and we have
done with the " Chivalrous" falsifier of plain
truths, and disregarder of the intelligence
of his countrymen. " Under the teachings
and excitations of Northern emmissaries,
and the government of the United States,
all sympathy between the white and black
races is rapidly disappearing. The negro
is deteriorating from the civilization he pos
sessed asa- slave, and relapsing into his
natural barbarism. While a slave, there
were two powerfulsupports to the civiliza
tion of the negro. He was the best fed and
clothed laborer in the world, and the marital
relations were enforced upon him."
; 44 Under the teachings" of good men, and
true women ; under and by the protection
of the " government of the United States"
the " sympathy' between all races on this
continent increases in proportion as educa
tion creates that " sympathy" and congeni
ality arising from love of the same
thoughts ; studies,and memories,
" Tho negro is deteriorating from the civ
ilization he possessed as a slave" thank
God for this; as he becomc3 1 more human
and less beastly each, year, ho forgets he
ever was a slave or that any part of. his
country; was to him aught but free land.

comparing these observations."

wave a bridge of gold running due north
spanned the water b2tween us and him.
