There was a mistake made by
small politicians in confounding
politics with partyism. In that

New York, July 22. The Herald this

with the spirit, tone, and practical u
gestions ot the Atlanta Conclitution tie

self-preservation and commercial inde

The governor says that over sitce the
bill passed the House, he has hopud that
some of tbe Republican Senators would
be found patriotic enough, broad and
brave enough, to prefer the well being
of the country to party ascendancy.
But if this hope is not realized, and the
Force bill bocemesalaw, he will use
whatever influence be may possess to
arouse tbe Southern people to the neces
sity of looking only to their ejchauetlees
"We will," he says, "welcome to
our section all of our countrymen of the
North, who may wish to live among us,
and we will still protect all their invest
ments and rights of property by im
partial laws and honest courts, but we
shall counsel a return to the old system
of the election of representatives by a
general ticket, if needs be, or a resort
to any lawful, peaceful meant) in order
to protect the right of choosing repre
sentatives, and to rehit the wrong of
having them choneu for us by foleral
Bupervi ors. "
The Governor concludes hid letter bs
follows: "We will Btill endeavor to
keep peace and promote good will be
tween the races, and sim-erely hrpe
that the Southern negro, r will not de
stroy their own property by roimortinu
with those whose mad policy rhreateos

backward and downward by sectional

advisable, as do Charleston nd Mobile
