(ODmTDIED 3OWM Fln PArUra
fact, the "red hot" rebel Legis
lature ordered a new election,
which has been held. But
the Republicans refuse to have
any part or lot in it for this
reason, and because the Ku-Klux
have obtained such entire control
of a large portion of the State that
they could not vote without dan
ger to their lives and property.
The correspondent states that his
section was formerly Ku-Kluxr
proof, but that these Democratic
assassins have now everything their
own way, and are carrying things
with a high hand. He asserts that
unless there is some check put upon
them by the strong arm of the Na
tional Government, all the leading
Republicans who yet remain there
will be murdered within the next
twelve months, if they dare attempt
to exercise the freeman's right to
vote. Hancock, Baldwin, Wash
ington, Watkins, and Putnam coun
ties are wholly controlled by these
murderers, and no man's life is safe
for a day. They ride out on their
excursions of rapine and murder
two or three timds a week. They
punish by whipping all who refuse
to vote the Democratic ticket, or
force them to leave the State.
Those who fail to obey their Qrders
are taken out and deliberately shot.
Men sixty years old have recently
been cruelly whipped by these in
fernal wretches, and the constitu
tional guarantee of protection to life I
and property is a perfect farce.
Bow long is such a state of things
to be tolerated, and how long, if not
checked, will Georgia Republicans
continue to risk their lives and pro
perty for the Government?
" MIAO J. J. PELfLIAN."
This gentleman who, when in the'
North, was very favorably and gen
erally known by the title of " Ma
jor," has, within a few years past,
removed to Mississippi, and, as is
detailed in the extract accompany
ing this, has carved out for himself
a position of which any young man,
white or colored, might be proud.
From Major he has been promoted I
to "Colonel," and, as is detailed be
low, he has thoroughly earned this
distinction. His urbanity, gentle
manliness and ability have won for
him many staunch friends in his
adopted State, and will secure for
him even higher honors. For
" Auld Lang Syne," as well as for
other reasons, we wish our friend
God speed in his noble effort to
assist in restoring the South, under
Freedom, to her influential pl.re in
the councils of the na. ion:
"AmIRs IN MIsSIssIwPP.-By late
advices from Mississippi we learn
of the re-election of our old friend,
Colonel James J. Spelman, to the
Legislature for a term of two years.
Mr. Spelman is a native of New
York city, and it is about three
years since he went South; yet so
happily has he identified himself
with the people that he has already
been twice returned to the Legisla
ture, has held several offices, under
both State and Federal authorities,
was a member of Governor Alcorn's
staff, with the rank of Lieutenant
Colonel, and was by him promoted
to the Coloneley of the 1st colored
regiment of State militia. Mr.
Spelman is a young man of talent
and executive ability, and while in
New York contributed some valua
ble articles to the leading papers of
" We believe Colonel Spelman
hsa number of friendsin Saratoga
county, and they will join with us
in congratulating him upon the
auspicious career which he has en
tered. He has a bright future be
fore him, and we have no doubt
that ho will, at no very distant day,
take his seat in the halls of Con
gress."-Baldon (N. Y.) Jourinal.
A P1THY SERMON.
Many a sermon has been spun
out to an hour's length that did not
contain a tithe of a sound moral in
struction to be found in the follow
ing brief and pithy sermon from the
pen of that witty and racy writer
Rev. John Todd:
"You are the architects of your
own fortunes. Rely upon your own
body and soul; take for your motto
self reliance, honesty and industry;
for your stars, faith, p eec
and pluck; and in ersbeonor
banner, 'Be just and fear not.' Don't
take too much advice: stay at the
helm and steer your ship. Strike
out. Think well of yourself. Fire
above the mark you intend to hit.
Assume your position. Don't prac
tice excessive humility. You can't
get above your level-water don't
run up hill. Put ptatoes in a cart
over a rough rodand the small
ones will go to the bottom.~ Energy,
invincible determination, with the
right motives, are the levers that
move the world. The great art com
manding is to take a fair share of
the world. Civility costs nothing
and buys everything. Don't drink;
don't swear; don't gamble; don't lie;
don't deceive or steal; don't tattle.
Be polite; be generous; be self-re
liant. Read good books. Love
your fellow-men as well as you love
God Love your country anti obey
its laws. Love truth. Love honor.
Always do what your conscience
tells is your duty, and leave the con
sequence to God."-Star Spzn gled
