1 Among other teasons given for the
- maintenance of an offensive surveil
lance over the actions of 'the southern
people-offensive because it comes in
conflict with the traditions and prac
tices of the fathers and presupposes
criminal intent on our part is that we
need subjugating into the propriety of
allowing the free exercise of opinion
among us. It u alleged that we are
intolerant of . any differences on the
part of those who were educated under
other influences and under what is
pharisaically called a higher civiliza
tion than the one beneath whose
shadow we were reared, r Y e ate told,
and the country is told, (for what pur
pose is apparent to every intelligent
inan.) that the Southern democracy
place under the ban of their social dis
pleasure all Who settle) among them
and entertain political frviews not in
accordance. Willi their own; and hence
the necessity of our, being taughtr by
Federal authority that humility on our
part is essential to the full development
of the changed condition of affarrs.
Doubtless some wealo-minded and
timorous men believe these stones;
but no one who is well informed can be
extraordinarily credulous. The
same causes which would render a
cnnthom -man odious to the .Northern
KA K AAV A .,
nni if hA.hoiild settle among them
t.r,,ui nnnnnatinnahlv operate to pro-
duce unpleasant relations in the boutn.
Men who are new residents anywhere,
if wise, will always exercise prudence
..nri ho narpful nnt to wound the sensi
bilities or even prejudices of their,
n,irhhnr. If a.citizeu of Alabama
ahnnM rpmnv to Maina and shortly
after his arrival should stand up in the
market-place and indulge in censorious
criticisms upon the manners, customs,
and language of the natives, con-traaHno-
with them the superior con-
fiitinn whirh existed in his mother
siiato hA would be sure to excite
hai hlnrwl and bnnsr uixn himself
the ill-will and even, the maledic
tinna nf thnsft nimn whom his animad
vprsinns were made, f Applause.
They would probably think that he
would act more discreetly if he waited
Vipfore indulcina in his
lptnrps! nr thev mi 2ht treat lam with
contempt as a fool. : Whatever might
le his opinions, if lie exercised good
sense and proper forbearance for their
annnnHPd follies and icnoranees and
showed himself in sympathy with their
interests he would command respect
and his neculiar views, when they learn
pd them, would be tolerated as the out
growth of a defective education, subject
to change by the superior intelligence
of -his surroundings. Laughter. If
this is true need any one be astonished
if the same sensitiveness to supposed
arrogance on the one hand and hope for
reformation on the otner snoiuu exis
at the South ? :
The danger of maltreatment is pure
lv ideal. ' "We welcome all immigrants
who come to be citizens and help us to
develop the resources ?f our country
and add to its wealth, prosperity am
happiness-. But we do not want patent
statesmen persons wh'a are distrusted
arid worthless where they were raised
but who. so soon aA they snuff our
balmv air., underero a sadden metam

the gorgeis ptirapherhjilia of 'stales-'
manship. The honest settler at the
South who exercises a reasonable share
of good sense and who has merit will
never complain of the treatment which
he receives at the hands of our people.
On the 15th of January bf the present
year a convention of northern settlers
jn the South assembled in the city of
Charlotte, in my district4-a place some
what famous for the declaration of in
dependence in May, 1775f-in pursuance
of the following circular-letter of invi
tation, written bv a native of Massa
chusetts, now a citizen of Charlotte :
Here Mr. Steele read !Mr. Dumont's
call for the convention .which met in
The author of this letter is personally

Mr. Robinson, and he can say whether
ie is a respectable man. iJIe commands
;he respect of our people who know
jim, not only on account1 of the general
propriety of his conduct but because of
the interest which he manifests in the
prosperity of our section of country.
This convention was atteaided by about
eighty persons of Northern birth who
have become citizens f the South since
the close of the late war, who after corf
sulfation among themselves made,
among other?, the following "findings!
which I commend to thej consideratiop
of all fair-minded and candid men, be
lieying there to be a complete refuta-'
tlon of the slanders which are uttered
against the people of Ihe 3outnL. f
H ere Mr. Steele had' read the first
nine of the fihdintf of thNorthern set
tlers' convention .j ;
I should be glad to give; the names arid
residences of all the parties who drew
up and signed these "findings," but time
will not permit it Among them is the
Rev. Dr, Mattoon, president of Biddle
University. at Charlotte, a colored insti

New,Xork a gentleman of talents and
culture and esteemed by all who knotf his
character and virtues. The other signers

rviot ia fh ftviderJce to sustain, tne
charge that the public voice is stifled in
thewthY, j Only- this: the South is
Democratic notwithstanding tne num
ber, of, negro yoters who are in it The
argurienm that the negro is naturally,
and in gratitude ought to be, a factor
for thesaccess4jf the KepublreanpaT;
that he would do as he ought to do, (and
as it was intended ne snouia aoj u. uui

the' Kepubncan leaaers .ic is ceruuu
that during the -carpet-bag 'and bayo
net dynasty of the South the bulk of the
members from our section were not its
representatives. Having no interest

tionai strengui uj uicowrcanuui
it had seemingly emigraieu. iiuw, uui
members are identified with their own
people and they do not sell themselves
Hke some of their predecessors for their
private emolument. JBut couia any oub
suppose, did any one ever suppose, that
the negro when the ballot was placed
in his hands had the intelligence to
overn himself, and that he ,wouMot
ecome . the mere instrument in the
hands of others to worn our inepm
poses of the superior power So long
as. alifens controlled him and made hun

shadowing power is gone, anLgone too
hv thA influence of natural laws which
all reflecting men knew would at last
resume their sway, great indignation is
nttprpd. it is not tne iraua wniuu
hurts, but onlv the result of the elec
lint if the nesrro at the South is na
turally a Republican, J desire, to. know
if th white of the South is not naturally
a Democrat? fLauehter.! If , the ne-
crrn is acting unnaturally and for false
reasons who votes or is voted the Dem
ocratic ticket, is not the Southern white
man acting unnaturally and for false
reasons who votes the Republican
ticket? It is simply a Roland for an
on ver in that case. Now. it is well-
known that nine-tenths of the white
natives. of the South are Democrats,
whatever mat Tirv6 been their former
party d : ff erences. As ignorance should1
be contolied by intelligence tor tne puo
lic benefit, I submit it to the candor of
Northern men whether it is not better
that nine educated men rather than one
should exercise the superior influence ?
It is not to be supposed that a few per
sons, and they not our most intelligent
people, should understand more thor-;
oughly the interests of one of the best
sections of this county than the great
bodv of the native population who re
ceived freedom and full citizenship as
an inheritance from their ancestors.
The presumption would be utterly idle
But besides this, there are: reasons
readilv understood by all why the negro
has become tired of the rule of his pre
tended friends. Many of them are be
ginning to see that the ballot was placed
in their hands not for their protection,
but for the sole purpose of keeping some
other persons in power. When they
have wanted office they have found that
the small portjon of the white race who
acted with them conia:Teadiiy turnisn
all the official material, while they were
left to do the voting. And I have known
some instances where tney were nomi
nated bv the Republican partv where
thoy stood no : chancer a of , election
Laughter. I do not say that ever oc
curred in this House. Laughter. They
have learned, too, that despite all the
falsehoods and inflammatory appeals
which have been made to delude them
whenever they need any substantia
aid it is to be - obtained almost
entirely from those against, whom they
have been placed in ail . unnatural an
tagonism, their pretended friends "keep
ing the word of promiserto the' ear-Tind
breaking it to the hope," and like the
"juggling fiends" in Macbeth they
should "no longer be -believed." They
have comprehended, too, that labor and
not statesmanship is ;their calling, and
they must work while their professing
friends are rioting on-tle fat of official
position. Naturally, the negro would
act.with his former master.and every'

I need not tell any Southern
what took place in nearly ! all of their
States during the dark days of what is
euphemistically called Republican rule.
It is a black page in the history of this
government, When did free elections
come in Arkansas, Tennessee, apd even
in Missouri? How long were many of
the very best men in these , States dis
fianchised for ho other reason thaCri be
cause they would not vote to keep ty
rants and plunderers in office? In two
of these States the governor had a pow-i
er which no monarch, in Europe posses
ses. Why. sir. in the conntv in wliich
lives my excellent friend, the chairman-
or the committee on appropriations?

about three thousand, the voters were
