IV.?NO. 16.} (Fr>>? th? Kalk>c?l lUpuMi ao j Thr Southern Question. The ilk hrnond Enquirtr takes us severely o task for some recent paragraphs that appeared in these columns in regard to Southern matters, and more especially about Vir [inia. It alto requires us to answer certain picalions?questions that have been aniwercd a thousand timet, ami that it seems i mere watte of time ami words to refer to it this late day. The first foolish assertion of the Enquirer - that one of the effects of Radicalism, meaning Republicanism,) i- to place the 'negro above the white man," and adds, "it nay tell u? that is simply the result of the reneral laws of the country, granting equal iglits to the two rares." To this we anwer, that if in any State in the South the legro is above the w hite man, that condition if affairs does not exist as one of the "effects f Radicalism," hut as one of the effects of siuthern stupidity, intolerance, and hatred >f the colored race. If the blacks of the s'Uth are to-day handed together; if, as in iouth Carolina, they neutralize nnd overrhe'.ni the white vole at the polls, the cause s to he found in the action and antecedents if the white party in that State alone. Retire the blacks united us a man against them hey had united against the black-. At the lose of the war, when the must generous erms ever offered to a people conquered in car were offered to the Southern people, "to ;o home and obey the laws," what did they lo in North Carolina, for instance? Why, hey went home and fought the laws in every vay they dared to fight them. They prolaiuicd a relentless war against the negroes ; hey marshaled the regiments of the dis- i odge i and Knightsof (ho White Brotherhood nd inaugurated a reign of terror in four or ive of the Southern States. In other States i lie u lutes refused to have any participation n the Government at all, anil if we mistake ot the Enquirer distinguished itself in Yir- ' inia in countenancing and advocating that xcccdingly ridiculous policy. The Enquirer tells us that Conservatism i icans the safety of the State and Radicalism :s destruction, and points to Virginia and outh Carolina in support of its posiiion. We annot see it in that light. At the same time ur contemporary must not misunderstand ur position. We will not deny or attempt 0 palliate the corruption that obtained in hat State. We denounced it at the tinuuas j evercly as we could; so severely that it was ttempted to seek redress in our courts. The ave of South Carolina is precisely analogous 1 that of .New York. In South Carolina uncrupulous politicians used an ignorant black ote and obtained power. In New York uncrupnlous and unprincipled white Democrats sed an ignorant whjte vote in the same way nd plundered that State of millions aud milons of dollars. In New York the so-called otter classes were indifferent; in South Cariina they rendered possible the very condion of atfairs of which they are now cotnlaining. The Enquiter asks us to answer this propotion: " if in Pennsylvania or Xew York icre was a majority of negro voters who ere banded together on the basis of their ice against the white race, would our Washlgtou contemporary contend that the intersts and rights of the whites ought to be lade to yield to the passions and prejudices f the blacks on account of the superiority i numbers of the negroes *.' This is a plain reposition, and the theory of the Radical arty is brought to a test in answering it. I 11 other words, do our political opponents I lean to maintain that wherever the negroes ' re in a majority they should exercise the j ower bestowed linon them bv their nonular trenglh in legislating against the prosperity ] 1" white men if they choose to exercise it V" : k'c are not authorized to speak for the Kepub can party, but it Is the easiest and simplest i liing in theworld to answer our contemporary. ; 'he material interests of the hlacksaml whites j i the South are identical, and if there are dis- i actions on account of color, if parlies are j >nncd upon the basis of rare, it is entirely, 1 s we said before, the fault of the whites, who : hould have known better than to bring about j uch a state of affairs. If the white South ; 'arolinians liad only acted fairly by the ! lacks, they could have divided "the black i ote long ago; but they did not, and now, j kc a parcel of women, whine and complain j f oppression and tyranny and of the evils I f radical rule. If we understand the process ! f reasoning of these gentlemen in the South ! jst now, they desire the Republican party to ! iolate the law merely to aid them. If "the j lepublican party would to-morrow override j tie Constitution and help them into power ; liey would applaud it as the greatest and est party the world ever saw. From (lie Cl.lrwSc.li We.kljr T.uies Ion. Minion Cameron, r. S. Scuntor from Pennsylvania. 'l'he telegraph announces that General amcron will make the South a visit at an arly day. Among the truly representative len of ihe country Simon Cameron is prom lent. .Daniel u'C'onnell said of himself, hat lie was the "test abused" man in Great tritain, but the abuse heaped upon General 'ameron in America has probably exceeded hat endured by the great Irish leader, in his wn country. It is the penalty of distinction > have your privacy invaded and your name andied about by envy and malice. Steadily, trough fifty yenrs of manhood, General ; ameron has won his way, against the storms f opposition, ami in spite of every obstacle, ; ot only to wealth, reputation and power, but ! a occupy an honored place in the first delibrativc body in the world?the Senate of the | 'nited States. For more than thirty years ; leneral Cameron has held the great State of Vnnsylvania, politically, in his hand, l'arty plits and new combinations, wealth and tal- ] ut, and vast political experiences, have1 nited, at divers times and in sundry ways, j n that long period, to subvert his influence-, nd to crowd him into obscurity, but he has till inet them and dispersed them with a oolness and a skill that places him among he very ablest political managers in this ountry. General Cameron was born in Lancaster ounty, Pennsylvania, on the Sth of March, 799; he is, therefore, 74 years old, entering n his 7oth year, lie learned the printing usiuess and w orked as a journeyman and as u editor and publisher. The transition from ublisliing ncwapajiers to political life is easylid natural, nnd ijimou Cameron soon be le was also largely engaged in banking busiicss, and in railroads and internal improve-1 nents. Atone time he was Adjutaut-genral of l'ennsylvania; lie was {secretary of Vnr in 1801, arid our Minister to Iiussia in SOL', lie was first elected to the United dates Senate in 184G, again in 1S57, a third imc in 1807, a fourth time in 18711 for six ears. Uencral Cameron is of Seoteli descent; lie s noted for the possession of the quality's of dhesivencss and persistence so characterstic of that people. He was never known to surrender a purxise or to desert a friend. In person he is all, spare, and wiry, mild in manners and jieech, cautious and self-possessed. His isit to the {south mav Ire of great benefit to is, for he is a man who can see facts as they ire, and has the courage to tell them. Senator IMncbbaek. We take the following defense of {Senator 'inchback from our cotemporary, The Chritian Recorder. It is from the well-known pen if IT. M. T. Whatever the style may lack n polish, is eftnpensated for in the rigor and rutlifulnnss of the defense. It hits the nail >n the head: "The question is, why did the United States jeoatc adjourn without seating Mr. Pinch V NA WASHIN back? Was it because he is not able to fill the position? Certainly no such flimsy or taise objection is that could have been urged ; for all who know the gentleman and his great abilities would not hesitate a moment if they arc honest enough to speak their candid conviction, to prouounce him an abler man than half the Senators now in Congress. I do not, say lie is better educated, or as well educated, hut in natural genius and sweeping eloquence, he is the superior of half the Senators there, and a far better statesman. Let us take that miserable old mummy, Joshua Ilill, of Georgia, whose time has* just expired, and who never championed but one cause, and that was to light Senator Sumner when he was trying to press our civil rights bill, and whose speeches read like a school boy try ing to read Latin liack wards. Why, X can tind a dozen corn-field negroes in Georgia who could speak the nose from his face. He is a man utterly destitute of any ability at all. He would not j make an intelligent wagon-driver. Mr. I'incliback could teach him fifty years, and yet the Senate seated that mummy some years ago, without half the claim to his scat that Mr. Pinchback has. Mr. l'inchback has also \ proved himself a statesman of the first ord< r ; . and the Republican party lias received the ; benefit of it. The snap and strategy dis-f played in bis contest witli Wai mouth, and tbe vim with which he executed his plans and saved the State of Louisiana from tlic vora- j eiousness of Democrats and negro-haters, entitles him to the gratitude of the Itepubli- : can party. "And if Mr. l'inchback had been white with such a record behind him, lie would have been seated with applause. Kosidcs he hud the prestige of the Administration at his back. The President had recognized his services and his government. The courts of the State and of the United States had done the same. Congress had done the same, by severely letting tlie matter alone, when the Pmci.U.Mt i??.i nv,w.u.e " "" "I"1" itiuBiu.ungu tutu net ion if tliev wore opposed to it. And with all tiiis in his favor, the (senate refused him admission with a certificate from the very Governor they and the President were recognizing, and are still recognizing, as the legitimate Governor of Louisiana. One of the oddities in Uiis case also, is the denial of the seat to Mr. Pincliback even temporarily, for it has always been customary with Congress to grant the strongest claimant a sept, though it might know at the time that the charges of frauds, bribery, and other illegal transactions, would unseat the parties as soon as the question was investigated, none of which can be charged against Mr. l'inchback, specimens of which cases also "have heen and are now before the Senate. What special pleadings have interposed to singularize this case, aud provoke an oddity of action by so grave a body as tbe I'nited States Senate, 1 have been unable to learn, nor do I believe there is any. The trouble is, Mr. l'inchback is colored, and lie is smart, he lias saved the State of Louisiana, lie is another hero of New Orleans, lie has defeated another liepublican, his conquest over rebel sharpers and Democratic tricksters will rank his victory with those of Generals Jackson, liutlcr, and Farragut, each of whom arc called the heroes of New Orleans, lie has demonstrated rather too much statesmanship for some of those fastidious Senators ; and tlicv bad rather keep him out or twaddle around for some time before they do admit him. I say again, had Mr. Pincliback been white, lie would now be in his seat, and while I am not disposed to follow this unpleasant subject any further, as we shall watch it vigilantly, I would like to whisper this in the ears of my race : 4 If we don't keep our ears open, they will chisel Mr. Pincliback out of his seat.' " The Homilies Cor the Colored Volunteer Troops. The late act giving bounties to slaves enlisted into the army during the war will take for its execution from two to two and a half millions of dollars. The first act on the subject, passed during the war, gave the bounty to local masters, as some compensation for loss of their slaves; but, as tbe loyalty clause was evaded by disloyal owners, (secretary Stanton got the law suspended in 1 SOU, and it lias now been renewed in favor of the slaves instead of the masters. The investigation and payment of the claims are to he conducted by the Adjutant General at Washington, under the same regulations as have been established by him for the payment of unsettled claims for bountief and pensions of colorc.-l soldiers who were free when enlisted. The features of these regulations are the ! payment in cash to the soldier himself, if! living, or to his legal heirs if dead, and to no : attorney or assignee whatever. The fees of the attorney prosecuting the claim are fixed by law, and the legal amount is retained from each claim allowed and paid to the at-: torney by tho Adjutant General. Army dis-; bursing officers are stationed at convenient ! central points in the South, before whom those whose claims have been allowed are required to appear personally and establish their identity bv known witnesses, and by answering questions based on information derived from the muster-rolls and stated returns of the regiments. The Southern Congressmen are also pressed into service by furnishing tliein with a list of claimants, whom they are requested to search out anil send to the paying officers. When bounties were first granted to the colored troops they were paid as in the case of white troops, the result being that the soldier got a small advance from the attorney to whom he entrusted his case, or a small n.-.W fno on/1 onnnlino on/1 oirrno.l away his whole claim unknowingly. In 1807 Congress recognized the peculiar difficulties arising out of the general ignorance and improvidence of the frecdmen, and directed that the Frecdmen's Bureau should receive the money and pay the claimants and attorneys, llut this only partially remedied the existing abuses. Advances made or pretended to be made to claimants were recognized, identilication of claimants was reduced to a formality, receipted vouchers were taken from claimants in advance and sent to Washington in batches, the aggregate amount covered by them being returned to irresponsible subagents in lump sums, the vouchers serving to pass the disbursing officers account at the Treasury, but being no real evideuce of actual payments. When the Bureau was broken up over SHU,000 was delivered to the Adjutant General as money belonging to claimants who had signed receipts without getting [ it, which receipts were then on file in "the Treasury as evidence of payment. The ap- i prorriations made to nay bounties were drawn ujH>n iu advance and excess of current needs, and the money invested in interest-bearing bi.nds and tbe interest used to make good to j the paying officer his losses by over payment and payment to wrong persons. All these irregularities have been entirely suppressed since the business caine under the control of the War Department.? Washington correspondent ll- ston (Jlobe. Tar. Massachusetts Legislature is called upon by tbe press of that .state to investigate charges of indecent conduct on the part of ! certain of its members. The most notorious ease is that of Mr. Hoyt, of Atho), the gentleman who has the unenviable notoriety of being the originator ol the resolution censuring Senator Sumner. Tbe charge is that, on Friday last, he tame into the House, returning from a dinner given by the " loyal sol; dii-rs" who felt insulted by Mr. Sumner's resolution, so intoxicated as to be maudlin and disgusting, lie entered at once upon the debate before the House, and behaved in a manner so disgraceful that an adjournment was moved and carried, in order to put an end to the scene. He is the Republican leader ot the House, and consequently ne censure is passed upon him. This is the man who haB led Massachusetts into the disgraceful act of censuring Charles Sumner!

As there is nothing so solemn in nature i the vast desolation that reigns about tl north pole?virgin yet of the presence of ii trtiding foot, or sail, or any evidence of 01 human kind?so when we catch vagi glimpses of that land of sileaee, or are en; uieu to tut mo curtain oi ignorance thai hanj about its outskirts, nothing can more strit tho mind with its impressiveness.

Rut in order to approac this subject we must follow a circuitoi route?we must go back nearly two hundre and seventy-eight years, to a period late i the sixteenth century, about the year 1591 when one William Rarentz, a Dutch nav gator, sailed away on his second voyage < discovery t<> trace out, if possible, the nortl west passage?that famous imac ned higl way to Asia by way of the Arctic ocean, tl fact of the existence of which so many oth< navigators have vainly endeavored to realizi liarentz failed in his search, but be discovere Spitsbergen, the va-t archipelago which lit in the heart of the Arctic ocean. lie foun it expedient to land upon this coast, an there he built huts for shelter and for tempi rarv residence for himself and for his com nam Here he tarried during the dreary months ( an Arctic winter, and in due course of tint abandoned the spot, leaving the huts an their contents, and returned to his own cour try, never to revisit his quaint settlemcn Three centuries nearly have passed awa since that event. The years have come an gone over those silent witnesses to the pre* enee of the ancient mariner and his sturd crew. In all that time, as we may believe no living thing has invaded the sacred sol tude of this spot haunted with memories ( that coming, long ago, of l.arentz and hi men. Possibly, from a distance, the walru and the seal may have gazed upon it, an from his rapid flight in the ether some Arcli bird of passage may have turned a curiou eye upon it. ilut 110 dust has settled there no moth has stolen in to bring decay. Eve the elements seemed to have abated tliei severity and to have protected with a kindl baud the legacy left to their undivided kecj ing. The sequel almost partakes of one < those tales wherewith the princess in th Arabian Nights deferred her threatened an delayed fate by whiling away the tedion evenings of her cruel Caliph. One day, i: the year 1870, Captain Carlsen bore shore ward in his ship to this icy roast of Spit? hergen. lie landed at the spot where Bai entz had landed before him, and to his pel plexed eyes appeared the vision of the ol encampment. The hills were still there, just as Mvnhec had left them nearly three hundred years age In the rude hearth lay the relies of the ul terly dead and long-extinguished fire. Upo the shelf were hooks from the old Dutef man's library?a work on navigation, th latest edition published before he had sailei and a history of China translated into Dutel Jugs and dishes, wherein had been prepare the drink and food of the adventurers, wcr scattered here and there, and even a pair < shoes was found which had belonged to a lil lie cuuiu ooy, wno, as say ine records, na tiieil upon the voyage. There were als quaint engravings, ami a curious inathcmat eal instrument intended to assist in obtainin longitude. All these articles were carefull collected, and were brought to Europe o Carlsen's return. There is a touch of th pathetic in the revelation of the long-kef secret of the Arctics.

In a letter front Zanzibar, dated the lit ult., the London Daily Telegraph's correi pondent, after referring to a report that tl: Sultan had not accepted the proposals ntac: to lum bv the British Government to pn liibit Jie transportation of slaves from tl coast to the islands, describes a visit he ha paid to the slave market at Zanzibar, as fo lows: It is in a corner of the poorest quarti of the town, principally inhabited by negroe: At the time of my visit?5:3d P. M.?said I be tho busiest in the market, there wei anout seventy-live slaves tor sale. 11 slaves exposed were all Africans, both t! new importations and those whom the masters, for their faults or owing to pecuniar pressure, had sent to the market. The tw classes could he easily distinguished. Tl: latter were iu good condition, and fairly elai two or three had even silver ornament: which, however, I was informed were to 1 removed the moment their wearers were soli They wero all females, and, with three < four exceptions, young. A few of these wet made to stand in a row for the inspection < intended buyers; others sat iu the veranda of the huts, talking to each other iu a sul dued \ lice?a point insisted upon by the masto- and brokers, very much against the own inclination?while those in the row stoc mute, like soldiers after the word "attei t: .n.'" The . ew slaves squatted in single file, dt - liblag something like a semicircle.-^a fe n. iug deposited in the middle. Unlike tl other lass, these were of both sexes, your and nM. some mere children, and all of the; near! kclctons, with emaciated figures, ar. atteim ited faces, hardly less repulsive tha skulls i ug up from the grave. Their appca auce excited pity and loathing. Conspicuot among this squatting group were two n groes who were mauacled and fastened t gether by a thick chain. I was told th; j they were so treated in consequence of the ! attempts to run away. They were youc ' men, strongly built, but the' savage w; plainly written in their facc-s, and it I h: ! been told that they were cannibals, it wou have been hard to disbelieve it. I pretend< | to be looking out for a cook and a boy. Thn girls were pointed out to me from amot those sent to the market by their master and thus I entered u]>on the business as bona fide purchaser. While 1 was questio I ing the man in charge of them as to t! knowledge of each in cooking, 1 observed tl way in w hich other intending purchasers e amined the rest of the batch. They look into their mouths, felt their hands ai shoulders and limbs, as you would a hort The girls?for all these were young n gresses?wore a resigned look, and seem to submit to the degradation as a crimin does to a degrading punishment. They i [.tared to have been born in Zanzibar, a having lived in Arab families, bad certain not lost, judging from their demeanor, t natural modesty of their sex. Two of th< were regularly put up by auction, and ev< bidder bad a right to examine them. ^AL I 'RIL 24, 1873 While all this was going on, the ]>oor girls had their heads cast down or turned aside from the crowd before them. Not having " found a cook who understood the dishes I ~~ mentioned, I turned to the newlv-appointed batch of negroes. There were few purchasers for these, and the whole lot presented ,s such a repulsive sppcarauce that it was iroie possible for me to remain long anions tiiem. Males and females - adults and children?all Jr seemed to be perfectly indifferent as to their lot ?so entirely unconcerned at what was going on around them ? their physiogonomics, a? a rule, so unlike those of tho Arian or Semitic races that, had it not been for the . slaves who were sent up from the town for 'e sale, and who, compared with these savages, were civilized beings, I should remember the * slave market at Zanzibar only by my associa" tion of the cattle markets of England.

A masquerade there? ; and they are given not only in the season, but whenever any fete is going on?presents a medley of characters such as T 1 In , j witnessed elsewhere in Europe. I remember j 01 "j taking my stand there on one sucli occasion, j and the whole world seemed to pass by in j ' jJ | costume, One may feel that he is in an 90 utterly foreign world, with continents. o< l ana, w ^ and ages stretching between him and people of kindred blood. Hut let him not be too > certain of that. Here pass two unmistakable I'd cockneys. There walks before them in the f1' ? procession a small figure, enveloped in close ! JJ ' domino covering the head and sweeping the 'r " ground. Cockney Number f'~e says to N'um- ! " her Two, "Say, Hill, wLt sex does that I,)f , | baniinal belong to?" "Middlesex," retorts , | me snian uornino, turning sharply around? ; *j i "Middlesex. I was born in tne Strand, in a" hearing of Rowbelis. Do you know thepa (j place?" The cockney, who had counted too j much upon tho safe obscurity of his mother- ; tongue, quite wilted under the reply, which ! c" was given with a matchless imitation of bis m< accent. Vienna has, indeed, especially since nc the cloud passed upon Paris, become a fa(j \orite play-ground for Londoners, and for j Ill Americans too. The managers of places of , amusement, especially of gardens and danc' ing-rooms, in Vienna, as elsewhere on tlie "} j Continent, look upon their Anglo-Saxon vis- ' itors with some dread. They spend a good deal of money, they admit; hut they allege p!' ; also that Americans and Englishmen are !'" l' rude, and sometimes offensive. At masquer- " ,( ades especially they do not seem to be aware c> that they are the traditional enjoyment of respectable people. At home they perhaps , (j take it for granted that the freedom as to " costume admissible in the hal matqui implies H some looseness of character in the wearers ; , 1 . but, however that may be in Loudon or New ' '' jJ York, it is by no means true in Vienna. a. Here, even on ordinary occasions, dresses may lie worn by respectable people which J would he impossible in more western ^nd u ,j- northern countries; they are simply histori- "" cal, and represent that uncrystalized condi- 'V1 j tion of Austrian society of which I have ut spokeu. !?' n When in one of tiiese gardens or public ' places one sits down to supper?as he will . generally wish to do, the dinner hour being ln< usually as early as three o'clock?he will find ari * the table loaded with luxuries, which reprc- nM j sent, like everything else, the vast outlying . domains of the country.

He was born in Sweden in | i 1803, and from boyhood manifested decided ; ('.c aptitude for mechanical invention. In 1S23, ' | he went to England, where he acquired the 1,1 n highest reputation as a constructive engineer. ! j He came to America in 183'J, assuming at '' j once and maintaining a foremost place in his j aa i" profession. So confident was he of the per- j.? ie ; feet success of his invention, that he pro- j ! posed for it the name ef the "Monitor." The ' >" | price contracted for was <27>,noO. The con- ; C(J ie j struction of the vessel was undertaken by : '' J Thos. F. Howland, proprietor of the Con- ! " | tinental Works, at Greenpoint, Ilrooklyn. j J'f 'r i So rapidly was the work pressed forward, j j" 3- | that the vessel was launched with her en- \ |? '> giues on board, on the 3oth of January, just j e ! one hundred days after the keel was laid, j " The hull of the Monitor was 140 feet long, 30 01 ie i feet wide at the broadest part, and 12 feet l" 't; deep. The hull was constructed of a double U1 'J' i thickness of iron, three-eighths of an inch '<> j thick, strengtliened by iron ribs anil knees. lf le j The entire length on deck was 1GG feet, the K:: | breadth 42. Ericsson adopted the revolving I" C turret invention of Theodore R. Timby, as wt >e ; the offensive means of his Monitor. She ar- " 1. 1 rived at Hampton Roads,from Xew York, on -v< ,r the evening of March 8,1HC2, and on the fol- ' :l e Inwins ilav occurred the memorable encounter m | with the Merrimae, or Virginia. On the 15th 8I 18 I of May, the Monitor engaged in her second > | and last action, when, with four other ves- ; f-'r jr scls, under command of Commander John 'r lingers, she ascended the James river, pur- th 'd posing an attack on Richmond. The attack o- failed, aud the Monitor then remained at j" 1 Hampton Roads until the close of the year, J" -- j when, with the Passaic and Montank, two w j vessels of the same general construction, >e i which had just been completed, she was or- t,J >2 I dered to Reaufort, South Carolina. The *c ot" Monitor set out on the 25th of Deoeniber, in ?' id : tow of the steamer Rhode Island. The sccin [ ond day out they approached the stormy point 3,1 r* of Cape Ilatteras. A gale sprung up, the sea I': 38 ; began to rise in heavy swells, breaking over tt. e-; the deck and pilot-house, and dashing against o- the base of the turret. The gale increased, w at and the water began to dash into the turret v< lir and down tho blow-pipes.
