S. Calhoon, published in the Times-Democrat, on the negro problem, the following copious extracts are made: Negro suffrage is an evil and an evil to both races- Its necessary outcome is that conflicting aspirations and apprehension most produce continual jars and frequent hostile collisions, which do not occur with homogeneous races. It has been tried for over twenty years and only heartburnings and violence are said to have resulted, Unless it can be harmoniously exercised, it is, of course, an evil.

The continual intervention of the strong arm of the general government is an experiment quite dangerous to liberty. It will not do to familiarize the Federal power with supervision of the ballot in erally.

It has been said that the cure for the evil will appear in white immigration -m in the black belt which shall furnish a preponderance of our own race. It is true that the question, in large degree, ceases to be a question where the whites are in large majority. Tho only danger there arises from the balance of power, and the manipulation of demagogues. This is serious, and it is jt unlikely the black race may, by the balance of power, and solidification and they will be always solid in the nature of things practically govern the whole country. Still, the introduction of whites iuto the South is very desirable, and in mitigation of the evil.

The South is keenly alive to the importance of it, and is encouraging it in every way she can. If the whites will only come in sufficient numbers it will very much mitigate the trouble.

Education and christianization, are thought by some to be in themselves a sufficient remedy. This is a grave mistake. As a matter of fact, the races fraternize less in religion than any thing else. In the desire and effort to christianize, educate and elevate the negro, the people of all sections arc a unit. Toward this, the North, out of her abundant means, has contributed with great liberality tor twenty years, and the South during the same period, has submitted herself to very onerous taxation.

But education has small connection with the negro problem as it appears in the suffrage question. It furnishes no solution hardly a paliation of the evil. The dfficulty lies not in the ignorance of the negroes, for a large part of the whites are ignorant of governmental affairs, which they will not take the trouble to comprehend. It lies in the principles of human nature before referred to, and the want of ness require it, and if the equalization cannot be completed in ten days, they may continue longer, but shall in no case receive per diem for more than twelve days for aid meeting.
