(Column 01)Summary: Argues that "ultras" in the North have sent emissaries to the South with the hope of provoking riots as a pretext to galvanize Northern sentiment against the South.
Origin of Article: National IntelligencerFull Text of Article:
The National Intelligencer thinks that the ultras at the North, have sent sundry violent Radical emissaries to the South, to stir up the passions of the people, and provoke riots and tumults; they hoping, that if this plan is successful; it will be made a pretext for the getting up of a furious crusade of public opinion in the North, the reassembling of Congress in July, the impeachment and deposition of the President without delay, and the passage of bills of confiscation of Southern lands, and perhaps the seizure and execution of individuals. The Intelligencer, therefore, cautions the Southern people to say nothing and do nothing which can give an excuse for the proposed new plan of operations-"to keep their temper and maintain their dignity."

Chewning and Effinger in the affirmative, and Messrs. Moore and O'Ferrall in the negative. The discussion was quite animated and interesting, and the young orators displayed a high degree of moral courage and considerable historical research. The vote on the question stood:--affirmative,4; negative, 13.
They also elected a new corps of officers for the ensuing term of two months, as follows: C. A. Richardson, President; Howard Wayt, Vice President; Ned. Kinney, Secretary, and W. Ker, Treasurer.
The question for net Saturday night reads:--"Ought Southerners, who are entitled to vote, avail themselves of it?"
The question for next Saturday night week is:--"Ought a person ever advocate what he believes to be wrong?"

"Radical threats of confiscation, and appeals to the negro-to bad passions and violent crimes-are already forcing the people to believe that any other party must be better and safer for them than the Republican party. The present state of parties in Virginia is significant. Already the blacks have taken an extreme position around the more violent Radical leaders-a position that will render it impossible for the white voters there to join them, and will, consequently, drive these white voters into the arms of any opposition.
"Mr. Botts who favors such action as will render it possible for whites and blacks to act together as Union men and republicans is denounced by the negroes as the enemy of republicanism. This is the legitimate result of the recent radical campaigning and this will go much further. It will force all men in the South who are not in favor of the policy of the extravagant few to oppose the republican orators in the South to-day are building up the democratic party far more efficiently than the democrats themselves could do it."
