The q-ieslion of veracity that ha been raised
bet warn tresident Johnson and Geo. Grant m

make known the following tacit, which confirm ;
but oriaiiial aU-ment to the rtortd, and which

In the memorable ran
hiinclf and Judge Ueagtea, in llliuoia,
be,w emphatic ia hit declaration. At
Ottowa, ha aaid, "I, at well aa Jadge
Douglas, am in favor of the race, to which
1 belong, having the euperier position.'
At another time, in a taeeeb delivered at
Caiuuibu. ha aaed the followinc laa;
guage;
"i am Dot. nor ever bare been, in fa
vor of bringing about In any way the so
cial ami political equality oi toe
and black races: I am not. and acrer
hare been, ia favor of making voter or
iorort of aecroet: nor qualifying them
to bold foflice. or intermarry with the
white people: and I will say, in addition
to thia, that there it a phytieal difference
between tbe white aad black races which
I believe will forever forbid tbe two race
living together on term of social or po
litical equality. And inasmuch as the v
cannot so lire, while they do remain to
re liter moat be tho potition of .uperior
and inferior, and I, aa much aa aay other
wan, am in favor of having tbe aupcrtor
posilion at signed tbe wbite race.
There It no evidence that he
changed theae view. They accord with
tbe view, af every ho neat white man,
who kaa aay correct knowledge of the
two race, who bat not become a fanatic,
and who ia not blinded by partixau am
bition or interest.
Such views, we bold, am not unfrind
Ir to tke trae and beat latere of tbe
colored race. Mr. Lincoln was a friend
of that race. lie would not enslave ibe
negro. He would give kim hi freedom,
and protect kim fully in all civil rights.
Tbaae are identically our view. But be
waa not In favor of riving social mid po

waa oppoaed to mvking rotors or juror,
of negroc-, ar of giving locial and politi

THE RAILROAD.
It will be seen, by advertisement else
where, timed by the principal business
men of Wittstoa and Salem, that a rail
road meeting it called to be held iu the
court house, at Winston, on Saturday, tat
dar of February aexl, to "lake into con
aidermlion tbe best means of securing the
location and building the Railroad to Sa
lem, under the charter granted by the
late Leirialature." it being the extension
of tbe Coalfield Railroad westward. We
hope the meeting will be well attended, aa
it i one of the most important more-
menu erar made to benefit thia section of
country, cut off as it is, at present, from
all direct communication by railroad,
which always has been great drawback
nana us growth and general prosperity
'No doubt spankers will be present, who
will full v explain the object of the meet
ing aud impress upon the minds of the
people the great utility of a railroad
through this section of the country. Kail
roads have always been a blessing to
communities, wherever located, for proof
of which we need only reler to the nour
ishing Northern and Western States,
which, in some localities, present, as it
were, a network of railroad, 'l imes, k
ia true, are act very favorable to enler-
lu the South lust now ;
bat a brighter day ia iu store for us, and
