[158] recommending the Governor to disarm and disband the Negro regiments.

Chamberlain is inclined to follow this advice; but such a course is not to be taken without some peril. The Negroes are now used to arms, and may object to being disarmed. A military spirit is abroad, and Negro mutinies are not unlikely to occur. If Chamberlain disbands his Negro troops, he will be forced to lean more and more on White support. Such compromises as those of Russell, Trenholm, and Dawson, are the true secrets of statesmanship; and this Conservative success in Charleston is a happy augury for every section of the South.
