the National Government; that while
entirely faithful to the Confederacy
until 't became "the lost cause," no
man in all the broad land hailed the
return of peace more cordially or
more conscientiously than Mr. Yulee.
Mr. Yulee is a conservative Demo-
crat,,in the highest ;and best sense of
the word, and although differing en-
tirely with him in party creed; we
have been so thrown, by confisultation
in reference tb immigration, internal
improvement, transportation and
State development, in direct and in-
tinate personal haquaintance with
his views, that as a political opponent
we chfinot well refrain from contra-
dicting the action and thought imput-
ed to Mr. Yulee in the paragraph at
the beginning of this article. It is, as
we know, false in every particular,
and no living man can be found who
ever heard Mr. Yulee advance any
BOOTS AND SHOES.
Mis-Represenafiohis always Iie-Aet.
We take from the Jacksonvilhle
New South, the following conclusiv
refutation of the fooli h canard float
ing about in regard to reported or
ganized action for the reclamation of
slave property. Coming from a Wel
kniowti Republican source, it carries
more than its intrinsic weight.
The hopes inspired in certain local-
ities by the late Democratic victory
are very significant. "A gentleman
of high standing, who has spent mrouch
time in Florida for two years, and is
acquainted there, brings the iiiliI II
tion that since the election gentlemen
in that State are engaged in buying
claims for slaves, and actually paying
cash for this class of claims, in some
instances 100 dollars each having
been paid. Among others engaged
in this business is ex-Senator Yulee."
We take the above from the Wash-
ingt(n Chlironuicle, and copy it as a
type of a style of mis-representation
of th'e condition of things at the
South, with which leading papers in
ithe N1orth have allowed themselves
to be duped, and to which they have
given wide circulation. Li&e the
base slanders that the same papers
have for years been habitually en-
doising, both f'omn la k of informa-
tiin as well as a want of courage,
against all Southern Republicans un-
der the general style of carpet-bag-
gers and scallawags; attempting to
vieit upon a whol, 1:iaA the sins of a
small fraction of that class. They
are untrue, and of course are evil in
all their influences and will always,
like curses, "come home to ro6st."
That frequent cases of'oufrage and
violence have occurred in the South,
none but a fool or a blind partizan
can doubt; but to accuse all the peo-
ple of the South who vote the Demo-
cratic ticket, of conniving at and sus-
taining all the low, base acts that oc-
curamong them under the combined
influence of bad whisky and worse ig-
norance and brutality is as transpar-
ently and foolishly false as the en-
deavor to fix upon the whole South.
ern Republicanf party the special sins
of the few among them, who, whether
convicted or not, are knoWn to have
committed g oss frauds upon the gov-
ernment. In neither case are the
criminals sustained by ev'eV a respect-
able numerical proportion of their
political associates. It is full time
that this stupid interchange of exag-
gerations atnd rnts.TSprest stations
should be brought to an end, and the
consequences of every sin, by a rigid
and imip:irtial administration of law,
be visited upon the guilty persons
themselves. In this matter the pregs
of the country may find a beneficial
sphere of action.
And now to recir to the paragraph
at t he head of this article, we desire
to say that while it is more than pos-
sible that here and there in the'South,
may be band a few wh'6 are wild and
fanatic enough to hope for a compen-
sation for slave property destroyed
by the rebellion, we do not believe
that one intelligent man in a thous-
and in the, South, has any such expec-
tation. At the same time we have
no doubt that reckless 'speculators
may occasionally be found to endeav-
or to cater to prejudice and make a
dishonest penny by talking large
about possible reclamation of slave
property. But no sane man, within
our acquaintance in the South, deems
the possibility of success in any such
scheme worth the trouble of discus-
We bring the mat er prominently
forwar to enable us to brand as ut-
terly and entirely false, the statement
therein made in regard to a most able
aiid juiblic spirited citizen of this
State, the Hon. David L. Yulee, of
Fern ndina. It is perfectly well
known in this State that Senator Yu-
lee, at the breaking out of the war,
as connected with the Florida Rail-
road, and as a private individual, had
a larger material interest in the pre-
servation o( pel (-e th'inii an" other cit-
izen of ilorida; tlit' lie very reluc-
tantly joined the minority nhat forced
the State into armed o, i,,iiin to
such thought or 'countenance any
e such scheme. A United States Sena-
e tor at the beginning of the war, of
comrfianding influence in the govern-
Sment, carrying in his hand tlhe whole
political faith and influence of his
f State and possessing to an unusual
degree the respect and confidence of
s the whole people, Mr. Yuilee saw the
end fr-oh the beginning, but like
many other noble and true men, and
as men in the North would have dore
* under reversed circumstances, conclu-
Sded to cast in his lot with his own
1 State and the people who so long and
so lhiitlilIlly had honored him. But
he liailed, and in pri perl'y, in political
Spromineiice and il ieelilyi, none have
paid more dearly for their mistake
Than 'MI. Yulee. Since the war, it is
Entirely within our personal know-
ledge that while acting with the Con-
; servatives iteither his losses, his long
I imprisonment, nor his bitter reverses
have sown in his mind and heart any
Seeds of bitterness oi hatred to the
government that vanquished him or
his fellow citizens fromi other parts of
the country. .Devotedly attached to
his own State of Florida, nearly every
thought is given to the development
of her resources ; and, among the
ablest and best informed of'tie whole
country, so foolish a scheme as the
reclamation of slave property, never
employed a moment of his thought.
No better sample of a truly patriotic
and conservative I democrat can be
found than ex-Senator Yulee. -
We are glad that circumstances en-
able us t6 prove the truth of' whfiat we
allege. In 1867 and 8 the late 'Gov-
ernor Hart Was acting as superinten-
dent of registration in Florida, pre-
paratory to the organization of the
new State government under the, re-
construction laws of Congress, Mr.
Y ulee, with a characteristic provision
of impending difficulties, a full appre-
ciation of the delicacy and difficulty
of reconstruction, and the desirability
of securing thrQughout the State a
disosition on all hands to co-work in
a practical plan of reconstruction
that by its wise conciliation should
commend universal partiality; came
over to this city and in a prolonged
interview with Governor Hart, en-
deavored to induce him to adopt a
series of resolutions which he had
drawn, as a basis of action in framing
the new constitution. They differed
in their views, and the resolutions of
Mr. Yulee were rejected. They sub-
sequently came into our possession,
arid, written in Mr. Yulee's own
hand-writing, have been quietly rest-
ing in our drawer, without any re-
cent knowledge on the part of their
author as to their existence; certain-
ly not in our possession, awaiting
publication'. They look old and yel-
low, but they are genuine, and by the
interpolations and erasures show the
labor and thought bestowed upon
them. Since they afford irrefragible
eviden e of the cordial and cheerful
acceptation, years ago, of the situa-
tion, by one who had more provoca-
tion to bitterness than most of the ad-
herents of the lost cause, and thus
best refute the base imputation that
is cast upon their author, we deem
the proper time for their publication
to have arrived. Here they are:
Resolutions of lion. ). L. Yudee,
Offered in 1867 as a Basis of a
State Government Under the BRe
construction Laws of Congress.
Resolved, That we accept as set-
tled principles in the policy of our
country,, the perpetual union of the
States, and the liberty and civil
equality of all citizens.
Lesorved, That as resulting from
the foregoing it is the plain duty of
every citizen to promote, by concilia-
tion and justice, a rating and pros-
perous union, and to respect and pro-
Wect the equal rights of' each other.
Resolved, That one of the highest
and most indispensable necessities of
civil society is good government, and
that it is proper for all good citizens,
in the existing emergency of the State
to unite for this object without regard
to antecedent or personal considera-
Resolved, That in view- of the re-
cent history of the country and its
present condition, the great duty of'
the day is conciliation, and the great
want of society is peace; and that-
sacrificing to our love of country all
our _prejudices, and burying all the
animosities engendered by our late
unhappy strife, and banishing all its
bitter mcmol ies, except for their use-
ful lesson of the dreadful consequen-
ces of civil discord, we will do all in
-our power to reconcile differences,
heal dissensions, and proriiote harmo-
ny between all thm people of ourm land.

order and social progress' only in the

Allen, whom w esteemed greatly be,
cause of the priiinvit Christian gra-
ces which nrm!' teL his character

and patience w1'e conspicuous in his
daily walk); because of his wholesome
advise as he lhldI counsel with us in
this Session from time to time respect-
ing thle interests of our loved Zion to
which ho was devoted, and because
of the salutary influence which the
combination in 'his conduct of firm-
ness with gentleness, and of patiereo
with earnestness was so well adapted
to exert over all, but especially the
young, in the congregation over which
the Holy Ghost had made him a ruler,
Be it resolved. 1st, That while vwe
meekly submit to the will of Him
who doeth all things well, yet with a
deep sense of our loss in his death of
a co-worker, brother, and friend aid
of the loss to the Church, his family,
and tlhe community, we lament that
he hath been l'.-mro'ved from us.

hold sadly bereaved bfthis dispensa-
tion of Pr'.i.h.,-ie, and pray that
grace sufficient -may be given them
for this day of affliction; forbl with him
we know it is well.
Resolved 3rd. That these resolu-
tions be spread on the minutes of this
Session as a token of affectionate re-
membrance; that a copy be sent to
the family of the deceased, and that a

people is a proper subject of public

of their inhabitants; that steady and
useful Occupation is a social duty;
and that while every citizen is utinder
