It is the duty of the civil and militar

they have the numerical ascendency. 1
tbdn it is proper to'say that the elective frai
chise conferred upon them by law carril
with it no authority to restrict others in tl

is their duty not to regard threats or intim

prevent by force, intimidation or threats th
samo free exercise of this right by others wi
be unlawful, and will subject the offenders t
the penalties prescribed by law and bymiliti

the right of voting in a quiet and orderl
manner, giving offence to' uo one ; and hfte

polling places, but to return quietly to thei

Great political importance is to be attached
IO the defeat of negro suffrage in Michigan,
one of the moat decidedly 'Republican Sta(os
of the North, and represented in tbo'TJuifed
States Senate byv ihe two most bitter of all
the Radical extremists. Negro suffrage waa
embodied in the State Constitution submitted
to the people, which, though it. was an im
provement in many respects upoH the Consti
tution now in force, waa rejected by a large
majority. The iiidication of Northern senti
ment agaiDBt universal negro suffrage, follow
ing the decision of the Pennsylvania Legisla
ture against thc introduction ot negro suf
frage in that State, is hailed with great satis
faction by all who hope for a restoration of
public tranquility. The subject was alluded
to iu the Senate, when Mr. Davis, of Ken
tuckyrremarked that Michigan was supposed
to be moredceply committed to negro suffrage,
than any other State. ''No man, and no pir
ty," he said, 'Mhat advocates this negro doc
trine can stand before the people of this
The position thus taken by Michigan is very
important in relation to the intended Radical
legislation for the establishment of unquali
fied negro suffrage in the whole Union.
Should Mr. Wade bo placed by the Senate in
the Executive office, this Universal Negro
suffrage Bill would be passed by a majority
in both Houses, and approved by the acting
President. The Radicals must either aban
don this proj ect, or be sooner or later discom
fited as a party. >
There will be but one great political issue
before the country, at tuturc elections, and
that will be the supremacy of the white race
in the State and Federal Governments.
We learn from North Carolina that the
Radical Slate Constitution will certainly be
defeated by the people. In that State, as well
as in Virginia, the white people are resolved
to regain and retain their ascendancy.
Should President Johnson be removed,
Congress, it is thought, will close the session
at a very early day, inasmuch as the members
desire to go home to look after their own
elections, and take part in thc Presidential
canvass. They will remove the shackles which
they have placed upon the Executive power,
and leave the administration of affairs in tho
hands of the acting President. But if im
peachment fails Congress will remain in con
tinuous session until the 4th of March next,

MONTGOMERY, April G.
General Shepherd, commanding the Sub
District of Alabama, to day issued an order
in relation to the Ku Klux Klan, and order
ing that the various sheriffs, mayors, maishals,
magistrates, constables:, chiefs of police, ike,
?will be held accountable by the post com
manders over their lespectire districts for
the suppression of the iniquitous organization
and the apprehension T>f its members wher

and the code of Alabama is silent on the sub

will be turned over to the commander of the
proper military post, with a written state
ment by the officer of thc dates, places and
witnesses, with a view to trial by military
commission. All placards and newspaper cards
of thc Ku Klux Klan are prohibited, aud ig
norance of their existence will not be held LS
an adequate excuse, it being the business of
the civil and military officers to kuow what
appertains to their duties. Citizens even,
though not holding office, will not be held
faultless. Further outrages -will be v;ewed
as evidences of neglect of duty.
AUGUSTA, April G.
General Meade issued a General Order, to
day, directing military and civil ollieers to
arrest and bring to trial all persona who may
hereafter print, publish or in any manner
give circulation to incendiary publications of
a perfect organization now spreading through
the State. Conductors of newspapers are for
bidden to publish inflammatory articles, and
any paper publishing in any manner tending
to produce intimidation, riot or bloodshed
will be stopped and proprietors, editors and
other parties connected therewith will bu
tried before a military commission, and on
conviction bc subject to fine aud imprison
ment. Military aud civil officers are required
to organize patrols and other means lor the
detection of persons who avail themselves of
darkness to execute criminal purposes. Gen
eral Meade admonishes the people that unless
acts of violence and intimidation are check
ed aud punished, bloody retaliation may be
provoked and much innocent blood be shed.
It is believed that the order refers to the

is, out pops the Republican patent extinguish

surely as the Supreme Court has gone to the
dogs. We have heard of these patent extin
guishers before. They may work well, for
a season, but the time will surely come for an

should desire to degrade them aud their chil

Radicals will pause before they finally con

Let No White Alan Forget His Doty on
the 14th, 15th and 16th !
The election which begins to-day, (Tuesday
14th,} is one, the importance of which cannot and
must not be overlooked. The issues involved are
momentous in tho last degree. The question bas
narrowed down to tbe point: Shall this'be a white
man's gn'ernment or not ? Tho teachings of the
Yankee emissaries who havo infested this land
since the surrender, have instilled the belief into
tho mind of the oolored people that the latter oan
get no justice at the hands ?f the white race;
and that they themselves (the colored people)
should have a kaqd in the government. For this
purpose the colored peoplo have boen formed into
loyal leagues, and bound by oaths to vote only
for those of their own race, or for such whites as
may havo gained their confidence through the
manipulation of the leagues.
It thereforo behoove? tho white pooplo of this
District, end every District in this State, to use
strenuous effort? to be at tho polls on the days of
election, to persuade his neighbor to go thither,
and, if necessary, to assist him in getting there;
and cast his vote for good mon who will do jus
tice to tho white as well as the black race.
The Conservative Candidates who have been
selecte d Tor this District are the right kind of
men ; men who command the respect and confi
dence of the peoplo, and whose standing in the
community is a sure guarantee of their usefulness
L;t no white man, then, in Edgefield District
fail to be at thc polls on the days of election, and
exercise the only privilege left him of his former
rights. Ii is more important now than ever, that
this privilege be exercised, as upon it may de
pond the future political, social and material wel
fare of thc people of Edgefield District.
If, before tho votiog is over, those remarks
should meet the eye of any man who has not
voted, and who, if he voted at all, would voto on
the tight side, we beg him to dally no longer, but
to fly to the polls, even though it bo at tho

Or. Dcvc re's Address.
Below, will bo found thc ndmiroble and prac
cally philanthropic address of Dr. JAMES A. B
vortE beforo tho Meeting for the consideration
the Debt Question on Mouthy tho 6th inst. Its a
vice and suggestions are worthy of universal i
sped and adoption.
Mn. Cu Ainu AX. AND FELLOW-CITIZENS :-Eig
year* ago, a hippier and more thrifty people wc
not to ho found ou the fice of our globe, than t
Soulhern poople. ? '
Thc truth is, that little word " want," as appli
to tho cou.uaon necessaries of lifo, scarcely had
place in the Southern vocabulary. Whilst to-da
the same little word is so familiar in almost eve
household that it m ie, ht be justly termed the coi
mon pass-word of our country. Nor was the
ever a pooplo who dared to claim the name
freemon, more down-trodden, oppressed, and 01
poverisbed, than are the inhabitants of this, o
once glorious, happy, sunny Sooth.
Such a state of things wo all recognise as the i
sultofono of the bloodiest civil strifos, to be foun
perhaps, io the annals of either ancient or mo
ern history; and unless we go to work in earn?
and in the right way, we are destined to witnc
ere long a much won>e instead of a better sta
Our first effort should be to resuscitate and r
store, if possible, the lort energy of our poopl
towards the accomplishment of which end, I kno
nothing that would more conduce than the redo
lion of old claims, on the part of creditors, thar
by placing, as nearly as possible, every Jebtoi
liabilities within his limited' means to pay; wit
something left, upon which to subsist himself ai
family, if possible. Tell me not that any ma
of a natural and filial affection for his offsprin
could go energetically to work, oppressed with %
belief that the last ear of corn and pound
bacon, the result of his own hard toil, would I
sr atchod, as it were, from his hungry children,
satisfy old claims, dollar for dollar.
Think, if you please, for a moment, and i
should all shudder at the thought of an old clair
whose principal was fearfully augmented by U
interest for four long years, against some unfo
tanate debtor, who was in the army, nndergoii
all the hardships and privations attending a so
dior's life : and, for aught I know, fighting tl
battle of some bomb-proof positioned, but no
If we would have a speedy retnrn of the ene
gy of our people, with a oonsoqnont increase
interest in oar agricultural pursuits,-than whic
there is nothing we should look moro closely t
for onr very life's blood depends upon its sncces
-I wonld says scale heavily the old debts. An
if we would have the retrograde movement i
the morals of our country arrested and their d
rection changed, I would say, scale heavily tl
old debts : If we would have an unwelcome ii
strnment, shortly to be presented to us for ratif
oation, defeated, I would say, blot out negro claim
and scale heavily the other debts. For cr?dito:
say to your unfortunate debtors, you must h ai
the whole pound of flesh, and if be, the debto
knows that be cannot mcetthe demand, with somi
thing left upon which to appease the hunger an
cover the nakedness of bis starving children, h
first aim will be, and in roy opinion should be, t
securo a sufficiency, for that purpose in the mo:
certain possible way, regardless of old claims.
Fellow-Citizens, I know but little about lav
a-id, with duo respect to the profession, I care bi
little about it. I think, howe vor, I know enong
about it to say the less you have to do with
the more money you will have. I have alwaj
been taught that the intention of law was to met
out justice and equity to the parties living thor?
under and amenable thereto, bat I must confu?
that not very many of the decisions I have hear
in this Court roon, according to my feeble n<
tions of justice and equity, did much toward
verifying the truth of it. I havo no doubt, bon
ever, but that our present code gavo entire lath
faction, and even gave us justice, in most casei
up to the close of the bloody and devastating wa
from which we have so recently emerged. But
am sorry to say that in those particulars it fulls t
present, which may probably be attributed to th
-inability of the framers thereof, to look into th
future, and behold an outside power, falling upoi
and dopriving ns, with one fell sweep of the swore
of from three-fourths to four-fifths of our lego
property, without any remuneration whatever fo
it Then fellow citizens, if the law was made fe
our benefit, and, by the extraordinary circutn
stances, which at present surround us, is mad
to fail to answer our purpose,-we being told fror
every nook and corner by the legal profcssioi
that we cannot modify it so as lo make it answei
becauso, forsooth, they say it will be an tx poi
facto law, why thon I would say, for our ow:
safety, we should do as our State attempted to d
io ISM-let us secedo from it at least so far a
our debts ere concerned. And my word upon il
the result will be much more favorable than ii
tho case of our unfortunate, thought gallant li ttl
State. Tes, fellow-citizen;, Ictus, with our debts
secede from the Courts, and settle our claim
among ourselves, taking tho teachings of tin
moral hue as our guide, a law not of human in
vention, hut of divine origin, and of coequal ex
istence with the Deity himself, and whoso teach
i a gs are all by the golden rule, " do unto otheri
as you would they should do unto you."
And should parties fail to like these and similai
views of tho teachings of this law, they need bu
call on three or five of their best neighbors, whose
decisions, in nineteen cases out of twenty, will bc
Yes, let UB compromise and arbitrate amonp
onrselves, and keep our cla'.ms ont of these double
tolling machines, the Courts ; for I tell yon, il
you start a claim through the mill, it will be very
apt to come out scaled a plenty. In those hard
timos, the only trouble would bo as to ?ho would
reap the benefit; and if it Bhould bc necessary to
run it through the mill a second time, as is gen"
ertlly the case, why then I would say sell it on
the wing to your Attorney for what you could
get; because it might involve some of your other
claims, if not some of your ready cash.
Fellow-citizens, I would by far prefer having
liabilities of mine settled by arbitration, at 50 cts.
in the dollar, to a verdict by a Jury at 25 cts; for
there is no telling how many times the Jury may
have the work to do over, and evory recurrence
adds to the cost ; whilst tho arbitrators have tho
work to do but once, and that generally without
money, and without price.
As matters now stand, I must acknowledge
there is nothing to be seen but darkness, even in
the di:tance. Still, I can but bolievo, if wo will
bo true to ourselves and to each other, dividing
losses, and reducing claims, so as to unable all to
live, that a bettor day will soon dawn upon as ;
light, in othor words, will burst in and disperse
from Hhove and around us the darkness which
''bas so densely enshrouded our whole country fur
throe long years. In such a case, capital would
begin to circulate freely, in quantitios equal to
the demands of the people, which is now locked
up for want of confidence in tho credit of tho
We have no claims, fellow-citizens, that we
cannot compromise if we wish, in spite of Judge,
Jury, or tho law ; except perhaps those in which
minor children are interested. And here, one
word to you, young Master wards, if there be
any present, bctwocn the ages of fifteen and
twenty-one years. Ask your uncios, aunts, broth
ers and sisters, who are of mature ago, to vouch
for tho validity of your minority promise to your
guardians, when you arrive at the age of man
hood ; then say to thom that you aro young and
physically able to wiold tho plow, the axe, and
tho hoe, and are willing to do so; and also that
you cheerfully reliove thom of a portion of their
liabilities to you, in order that they, your aged
and perhaps decrepid guardians, with their cm
povorished little childron, may bo enabled to still
live without the limits of tho poor bouse. For
romember, that, bat for circumstances over which
they had no control, they could pay yon to-day
dollar for dollar, with a bountiful supply left for
themselves and families. Weigh your claims
well, Master wards, in the scales of justice and
equity ; not forgetting at the same time, that for
ty or fifty cents to the dollar will, to-day, bey
more real estate thai, a dollar would before the
war. Kow, young ?juricrs, if ?neb be tree, cu
you not clearly eco thnt n failure on your part to
seale your claims would ba a gross violation of j
tho moral law, thc penalties of which you cannot
bo screened from, by shrewd .ind managing attor
neys, as, no doubt, has often been unjustly done
in this Court room under' tho penal code of our
Under such circumstances, bow can you mus
ter np courage sufficient to look those pauperized
little childron squarely in tho face and say
" Amen" to their poverty and your own conse
quent increased wealth ; for it is true, beyond
doubt, that if you receive dollar for dollar from
your guardians, you are wealthier than if there
had been no war with all its dovastatiug influ
As regards claims for slaves, I will only say
that it is a solemn thing to bo forced into
tho presence of our Maker under the moat favora
ble circumstances, but if I were to suo for, and
recover pay for emancipated slavo of my neigh
bor, exoept as to interest or hire, I feel that I
should want the rocks sad mountains to fall upon,
and hide me from the presence of Him who can
not look with the loast possiblo allowance upon
outraged justice; for you may depend upon it,
fellow-citizens, that though the penal law of the
State may give you a vordict for a purchased
slave, the moral law will never do it. And neither,
in my opinion, will'the people, at largo, in Edge
field District do it; and God grant they may not!
Such a noble determination and precedent on
their part, would moko me but the prouder that
it was in the midst of such a people my mother
gave me birth ; and that nearly all my associa
tions, up to the present date of my life, have bien
with such a noble-hearted, and justice-abiding
In conclusion, fellow-citizens, let us unite as
one individual, and take the teachings of the
moral law as tho man of our counsel ; blotting
out claims for slaves, ordinarily speaking, and
scale, compromise and arbitrate, os our standard
for the settlement of all other claims.
Tes. let us write these just and honest measures
in the palms of our hands as it were, and bind
them upon our foreheads as a frontlet. Tea! let
ns proclaim them from the house tops as our claim
adjusting motto. And the great comfort and
relief thereby extended to suffering humanity will
not only give ns peace during our probationary
term in this life, but will be a source of inex
pressible comfort to us when our immortal spirits
are summoned to take their eternal flight through
the dark valley which lies between every man
and his final destiny.
DISTURBANCE IN CHESTER-Weare inform
ed that daring a recent visit to Chester by
Dr. J. L. Neogle, of York (or rather of North
Carolina), the convention nominee for Comp
troller-General of this State, he attempted to
make a Republican speech. What he said
on thc occasion is not repor ted ; but it is to
be presumed that his language was neither
conciliatory or kind, and tho result was a se
ries of interruptions, which culminated ina
sudden silence and industrious leave-taking
on his part, without the usual formularies of
a fond farewell. A further result is.that
Chester is to be taken by storm. Dr. A. G.
j .Mackey, Chamberlain, Moses and DeLarge
contemplate, it is said, an curly visit to the
unfortunate village, and will inflict upon the
inhabitants thereof a series of speeches, which
will demonstrate, beyond even a shadowy
doubt, that Chester ought to como back into
thc Union and be reconstructed ; and thal
her animated citizens should treat the Re*
publican party with more politeness than to
rebel against Neagle's eloquence and compel
a cessation of the elocutionary verbosity ol
one of its bright and shining lights.-Charles
