Been spokeo by the President or by
Congress to'the people of the southern
States. They have been addressed ooly
in the langnsge of proscriptinp." We
earnestly entreat oar fellow-citizes ia
all parts of the Union to spare no effort
to maintain .peace and or-Jer, tocareful'y
protect the rights of every citizen, to
preserve kindly 'relations among air men,
and to discountenance aud discourage
any violation of i?,e rights of any por?
tion of the people secured under the
Constitution or any of tts amendments.
Let us, in; conclusion, earnestly neg
of you not to.aidtthe present attempts
of Radical partisans to stir up strife in
the lund; to renew the issues of the
war, or to obstruct the returo of peace
and prosperity to the southern States,
because it is tims that they seek to
divide the attention of the country from
the corruption and extravagance in their
administration of public affairs, and the
dangerous and profligate attempts 'they
are making towards the creation of a
centralized military Govern trient."
In the five years of peace following
the war the Radical administration have
expended 1.200.000,000 dollars for
ordinary purposes alono, being within
8200,000,000 of the aggregate amouut
spent for the same purposes in war, and
in peace, during the seventy one years
preceding JuueSO, 1861, not including
io either case the sum paid upon princi?
pal or interest of the public debt.
It is trifling with.the intelligence of j
the people for the Radical leaders to
pretend that this vast sum has been
honestly expended. Hundreds of mil?
lions ni it bas been wantonly squander?
ed. The expenditures of the Govern?
ment for the fiscal year ending June 30,
1801, were only $02,000.000; while foi
precisely the same purposes-civil list,*J
army. navy, pensions, and Indians
8104,000,000 were expended daring the
fiscal year ending Jane 30,1870.
No indignation could bc too stern,
and no scorn too severe, for the asser?
tions by unscrupulous Radical leaders
that the great Democratic party of tbe
Union has or ean have sympathy with
disorders or violence in auy part of the
country, or in the deprivation of "any
mao cf his rights nuder the Constitu?
tion. It is to protect and perpetuate
the rights which every freeman cherish
es, to revive in all hearts tho feelings of]
friendship, affection, and harmony,
which are the best guarantees of law
and oider, and to throw around the
humblest citizen, wherever he may be,
thc protecting aegis of t hot e safe-guards
of personal liberty which the funda
menial laws of the land assure, that we
invoke the aid of all good men iu the
work of peace and reconstruction.
We invite their generous co operation,
irrespective of all former differences of
opinion, so that the harsh voice of dis
cotd may be silenced; that a new and
dangerous sectional agitatiou may be
checked; that the burdens of taxation.
direct and indirect, may be reduced to
the lowest point cousisteut with good

Horace Greely has on several occa?
sions lately hit Grant some pretty
severe ?slaps, which lead? the Grant
conspirators and manipulators to believe
that Horace is much demoralized, and
he is not a unit for Grant's renomina?
tion, and in order to calm the troubled
spirit of the philosopher, they awarded
to tbs Photolithographic company of
New York, of which Hornee is president
and a large stockholder, the contract for
furnishing the plans and drawings of
the annual patent office report, for the
sum of $180,000, only $60,000 more
than Langron & Ogilvie, a well known
and reliable firm here, offered to do it
for, but whose bid was rejected, that the

" Apart from tbe wrong and injustice
of such proceedings, they ave, in* the
highest degree, unwise and impolitic.
Occasionally an unruly negro, or an

Every man teamed by these Klans

Every man chastised, loses for us thou?

Our only hope for ultimate peace, se?

good sense and the good, feeling of the
masses at thc North and Weat. We
cannot look for soy aid from the Senth.
Ignorance ?nd corruption so thoroughly
saturate thc vast majority of Southern
voters, that we most always count them
as enemies to every movement tending
to our political improvement. To the
North and West we must look for cur
