I'hc Republican party is thc parts of
freedom and progress. lt is its purpoM;
to aid in securing for the South freedom
of speech, a free press, and a system ul*
free school. These desirable results will

as far as posible ; but our main reliance
must be upon the wisdom and virtue of
'he pdoplu of the respective States. Hy
the ads of the 2d of March, nial of the

for die enjoyment of tito right of voting
by all nude citizens, twenty-one years of

tue late War ? the negro rael' is indebted
to the Country, controlled in its policy
l>\ the republican party, for the emanci
pation ol the race Pom slavery, and now,
bv these nets ol' (.'phgross, for its eleva
tion to a po.-,itn.n ot' equality. Kroin
these reciprocal services arise mutual obj
ligations and duties.
The nation c ii iib longer hesitate. Ii
will nt once, and frech, eoiicedc to thc*
colored race every political and public
right that is enjoyed by any class of Citi
zens. The negroes, on their side, can
not hesitate tn support the party and tho
pi'ih?i les by iVhose labors and influence
theil- redemption has been accomplished.
Thus, by this natural and necessary
union ol' forces in thc .South and through
out thc whole country, peace, progress,
ami prosperity; are secured.
Nor is thert' in these suggestions any
food lot hostility between the races. Tho
wants ot a bhu U man and the wants of a
while umn are precisely thc kamo ; their
interests are the same. Kspecially is thia
true ol'Ilie laboring classes. Thc labor,
ing man, w Itel her white or black, needs
tin- protection of law. Ile needs thc bab
lot tis the means by w hich he st cures
equal laws and the just administration of
them. Itv thc ballot he rebukes or rejects
unfaithful public servants, Hy the bal
lot he arraigns and condemns corruptor
tyrannical judges. Hy the ballot be or
ganizes and maintains schools for the
j education of his children, and inspires
! Iho police and magistrates with due re
-ped for his personal and family rights.
While the measures of Congress extend
; this great right to a new and numerous
i class of men, there is no invasion of tho
i rights ol'others. Thc white people of the
South, with ii few exceptions, compara
' lively, arc to enjoy just and equal politi
cal rights and privileges. Freedom lias
given to thc North unexampled prosper
ity ami constantly Increasing wealth and
pow- i . Freedom and free institutions
will secure for the South the same re
sults ; but there must be co-operation of
the rm-cs. and there must bc co-opera
tion upon thc principles which prevail in
thc North, and ti' which thc Republican
party is full? cou.milted. Kol" more thar?
