-. Since the recent elections the bMoo
dy shirt papers in abe North have re
newed the cry of "the solid South"
as a bugbear with which to frighten
- our friends there into acquiescence
rOR to the repetition of the old line of
policy under which we suffered so
much in the past. Efforts were
= made, which were at first reported to
IN be successful, to induce President
= Hayes to forsake what is known as
his "Southern policy," and to revive
the practices of 'Grantism" with re
* ference to the South. it is now said
ork that the "stalwarts" claimed too
much of success for their endeavors,
Mo but it is certain that attention has
been generally dsawn in the North
to the State governments of the
78. South, and particularly to Louisiana
-' and South Carolina. The force of
i8r this object is destroyed somewhat by
a the election of one, and possibly two,
tle Republican Congressmen from North
,t Carolina, and one or two Greenback
n, ere in other States, very much to the
tog chagrin of the "bloody shirt" organs
rce and orators.
'- But all that is neither here nor
tT there. The South is not solid In ý
any opposition to the North as a
Iel section, nor is the cry of a "solid
at- North" ever heard anywhere in the
South. The Republican party in the I
mr South has been a very different thing
ad from the Republican party in the
North. With as it has been made
fa- up of a mass of. ignorant voters led
and marshaled by a horde of hungry c
and corrupt. carpet-baggers. It t
or sought power for the means and op
It portunities it gave them to oppress
le the whites and steal all they could a
lo of their hard earned substance. It t
was held together by the cohesive l
force of plunder as far as the leaders t
is were concerned, and grounded in the o
n- hate and suspicion of the negroes for t
'y their former masters. For a while f
its it ruled the South with the iron hand
of a despot and held a high carnival a
of crime in the places we had conse
- crated to our best and purest men in t'
the past. ' Try what plan we would, E
turn which way we pleased and we a
were confronted with an array of n
bayonets whose mission it was to -
uphold these corrupt and mongrel ,
er State governments. Thus it was for t
a- long and weary years.. - g
ti Finally the negro lost his faith in c
n. the carpet-bagger, and as Beelzebub W
le had done in a higher sphere, he as- g
pired to the supreme control for him- a
self. It dawned at last upon their t,
id benighted mind that if they could
k, elect the carpet bagger to high and
v- lucrative offices, he could elect him- fc
id self to the same places. By this a,
a- time some of the Southern States w
had managed to free themselves from It
the yoke. and were allowed to quietly si
. pursue their way. Virginia, Ten- k
nesee and North Carolina were free. al
id The rest of the Southern States were a
then confronted with a danger which w
threatened not onily the control of ft
their governments and the confisca- tr
y tion of their property under the rc
oe guise of taxation, but involved also tr
a, the peipetuation of their civilization m
B' and the safety of their firesides.- "
le From the unreasoninog ambition o? O
the negro grew the race, issue in the sg
politics of the South. Upon that is; .i
g se the carpet-baggers, who had al
Sready been thrown overboard, main t
Slysided with the white people. The
Salliance ln Louisiana with Warmoth
e and in South Carolina with Chain. be
Sberlata, illustrates tlls. In or about T
1872, Alabama arid Georgia followed hi
d Vlirginia, Tennessee and North Car.
f olinao, and they too .were free. Two 54
r. years atterwards Mississippi, Ar. di
t kansas, Tezy. and Florida also a
. achieved their freedom of local role, e
d not without trouble it is true. When at
r we in Loouisiana tried to follow the I
lead of Texas apd Arkansas and ,
overturned the Kellodg government bt
,on the 14th of September, 1874, we S
lwere promptly squelched by the a
! strong arm of the United States gov. gi
I ernminet. It is not necessary to de- wi
'tail the means bywiich in 1876 LonCi
islana and Soutih Carolina finally si
were also freed from the yoke they ns
Sbad worn so amuch longer than their
sister States..
SThis brief recital of the. facts ye
proves the truth of the assertion ib
with which we started this article, ha
Sthalt our struggle has been for local so
self government and apon no policy jh
or platform of oipposition to the av
l orth,. If the South is solid- it is c
.solid upon the right of the Southern V.
States tol manage their own affaiils
