It is too lato to interfere with tho affairs ot tho south in that way now. Our people will not regard any legislation intended to place the nogro over thorn, and the sentiment in t,ho north is against it. Tho nogro has advanced among us as rapidly as iio is capable of, and tho best thing is to lot him alone. Thinking people a|l over tho country soo this. It is only a few politicians that are trying to koop up tho agitation. Wo aro not a savage and brutal poopln; wo aro kind and humane to the negro, and, more than that, wo know him. A Poor Opinion of tlio Negro. "He is not capable of government, and^the people of tho south will not pjnnit thorn- solves to be dominated by him. Tho ballot with tho negro, take him as a whole, is a toy ho has got tired— of; — Ho— has~no— idoa~of~thn~ purpose of the ballot or how to. uso it Ho has used it in a blind sort of a way until ho is tired of it, and ho doesn't go to tho polls now unless there is some special reason for it If ho Is working for a man who wants him to vote he will go up and cast his ballot because his employer wants him to. Otherwise yon must give him a drink or a quarter to induce him to vote. Some such reason as that must influence him. Ho would rather stay at his work than lose tho the time. Some Republican politicians accuse us of suppressing the negro votes because they aro not cast. The fact is merely that the great mass of the negroes, not knowing tho use of tho ballot, havo got tirod, now that tho novelty has worn oir, and stay at home." _ _ Ohio Democratic Politico.
