When active hostilities reaped tliey suddenly grew bold again, and now seem not at all averse to the idea ofrmewitjg ib* conflict?on paper. Their fierce tirades Hgam?t Congress, and abuse of the iq. fernal \ snkees, are diversified with feeble at. temple at wii; school inarms" and niggers" beivf the subjects at which m.>at or thi*ir rail, lery is direvtrd These indirect manifestations of hostility to the Federal authority for th-* animus which prow pt? tbem u the same which fomented the rebellion?would be insignificant were it no' lor the incalculable mischief m?*y do the >ou'h, already prostrated and impor eri-led, by weakening the hands of all true lrienae ot that section, and encouraging those who con lend that a strong military government is ne-ded in the excluded States because of the rebel.ioua spirit still rampant there. The o'ber class ot journals to which we refer. seemingly friends of peace and good gjv eminent, are scarcely less mischievou- in their efiorts than the incendiary aheet* wd ei do uot disguise their hostility to ine Federal authority Tbey eounsel their readers to tag-* no part in politics, but devote their time and attention exclusively to industrial pursaits. This sounds very well, and such opinioas are often quoted by conservative journals at the Nor'h as show ing the growth of a healthy public sentiment at the South. Such ssumed in. difference to the great political questions Of the day is but a thin disguise to conceal disloyalty. We say aisomed iadlflTereuc-, because it is impossible that a people educated in self-government for nearly a cen'ury, should not be deeply conserned at being deprived through their own a:ts ot a voice in the National Council. It is all veTy well to talk of clearing farms, opening mines and establishing factories. But something more is wanted. All the industry and enterprise which can be brought to bear on the immense resources of the Sooth will not sullies to make it the rival of the Worth and West in material prosperity, ontil its political equality is established, and it assimilates in liberality of sentiment to those other communities where emigration now naturally and Inevitably *ends, because labor to honorable and honored, nd workingmen are guarantied full political and legal equality with their wealthier neighbors. Those men at the South?unfortunately they are but few?who see and recognize the ad van re in public opinion throughout the counl try, aud boueMly and fearlessly tell the peo" pie they mnst give np some of their cbertoh*d Ideas and sacrifice some of their prejudices, in i order to regain their political rights, forfeited ; by the rebellion; these men are the only trm rlends of their section, and the day will yet come when tbey will be beaored for their boaest and patriotic efforts. That time is not ,ow- The blindness which prompted the suicidal policy of secession, does not seem to have been removed by foar years of war, but actually increased In some eases The* lottesvllle. Ya., Chronicle, in some caustic re" marks oa the coarse of the Virginia Legislature, aptly illustrates the spirit which animates some of the old fogies in that State, a* follows: ' The present Legislature have had the beuna,,e wn old *o?se knocked to pieces over their heads?and there struck the ediuce drove no idea into their S? ny ,n ta chambers of tbflr InteUigenca.
