B&-TIIB ORANGEBURG NEWS HAS
A LARGER CIRCULATION THAN
ANY OTHER RARER IN THE CO UN
SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1871.
Ijoolt I'-nck !
In our last issue wo bad :t word to say
I about the scheme the Democrats ol' this
State have put up to secure the votes of
colored men in the coming election.
We now desiro to say a few words to
the honest and hard-working poor white
men of our County. You who survived
tho late and terrible civil war and who
stood with other noble comrades the
brunt of the contest, and came home
sick, ragged and worn out, to find
starving frionds and families to greet
you, how stand you to day ? Do you ever
rook back upon the lime when you were
seduced from your sacred fire-places to
engage in a ''rich man's fight and a
poor man's war?" It was not "Tax
Unions" then, but rosette-. Blue
rosettes, and without one pinned to
your breast it was almost worth your
life to appear on the streets of your
town, or the publie highway. When
patriotism was belched forth iu liquid
streams from the mouths of men in high
places to lure you on to the war-path;
when we stood and listened and drank
of the cup banded us until wo were
drunken; uutil, with one inipstuous
shout, we sprang to the front to battle
and to die, for what? Do you overlook
back to the time whim naked, bare
footed and "starved} wo. led the van.
with the wails of widows and the cries
of those made fatherless ringing in our
ears; when we bared our breasts to war's
cruel blast, whilst the majority of those
whose fight it was, were secure iu bomb
proofs, and speculating on the poverty
of our seared country by blockade run
ing; irheu the country was Hooded with
exemption grist mills, and little corn
found to griud; when your pay waj
thirteen dollars a month in Confederate
script, aud corn ten dollars a bushel at
your starving homes ?
Wo ask, friends and comrades, do
you ever take a retrospective flow, and
carry your minds back to the time
when wnr's rugged path festered our
feet? If you do, (ben listen. We
would a word with you. Y'ou are free
men to day. God's light of blessed
liberty shines on your brows this morn
ing. Wo know man}' of you. We
know by bouest iudustry, you arc in a
thriving way, that your acres have
ftecn widened, your cum cribs enlarged,
and your wives and children's wardrobes
greatly improved, and we know that
you have paid your taxes. It is not
your land that is cold or forfeited to the
State. No. But you have doubtless
found it hard sometimes to raise the
amount needed. However, you found it,
and how many of you are ns poor to
day as you were before you entered the
army, to battle and suffer for the rich
man's weal? Look back ! Did you ever
think (we have) what would have been
tho poor man's position here bad the
Confederacy gained her independence ?
Would the poor white man have been
considered "as good" as the rich man's
slave? Wasn't it "once upon a time"
that a man was judged not accord
ing to bis worth, iutclligeuee or hon
esty, but by tho number of slaves ho
owned ? Do you remember, when it was
common to be called "poor white trash"
by a rich man's slave? "Look on that
picture, then on this." Phoenix like,
from out of the ashes have you sprung.
You returned from tho war iu poverty,
with what littloyou bad luid up through
years of toil Bwcpt away by its blast.
"With neither horEO, plow or bread, you
havo worked out a deliverance, and
stand to-day a frco man, bound by no
ahaoles, if you will it, aud surrounded
by a competency beyond your lbud/sst
anticipations, and far beyond the most
of those who freely mado a sacrifice of
you in part, to subserve their own
Ab like in '09, so iu '71?then it was J
blue ro.se*tes?now it is tax-unions.
As it was then, a cry for protection to
the affluents and tho aristocratic, so it is
now,a squabble, (of tho largo hum owner,
who loves his ancestral acres, and tho
old Bourbon who loves office and tho
tattings of tho land,) to get back
into power and regain that affluence and
authority once so hugely enjoyed. They j
have tried various ways; the) havetrol
don many paths?they b ivo damned Re
publicans and they have damned princi
ple? they have "wandered as blind men
in tho htroets, they have polluted them
selves with blood, so that men coald not
touch their garments." These things
have they done, yoa, oven more than
this have thoy de ne, "stay yourselves
and wonder; cry ye out, and cry ; they
arc drunken, hut not with wine ; they
stagger, but not with strong drink
List! they have even bout the 1 fawning
hinges of tho knee," they have "lickel
the band that smote them" and lastly,
they have turned to the really wicked,
to the Tammanyite3, the chiefs of the
modern Sodom, and rays of blessed
hope irradiate their horison ! And
thoy have come hack to you, an 1 their
cry is help us, ere wc fin illy perish .
They ask you covertly to put "uion -y in
their purse"?"money, they m i-t havo
money"?Dawson-like, "money is what
we want." And it must come in the.
shape of taxes, from the pockets of poor
overburdened taxpayers, to give these
Bourbons the opportunity to "collect"
the taxes." First fifty cents a piece to
be allowed the privilege of paying two
iiuHh on tho dollar's worth of wh i! you
havo labored so hard to accumulate, to
enable'thcm to ring out the now an 1 ri ng
in the old regime,aud you to have the j
privil go of casting your vote- Cor them
These Broad street bummers have
check , certainly.
Well, arc you going to do it? Look
back ! Sec if you can afford it. So3 it"
it will net be better for you to stand by
the party that has stood by you; the
great poor man's party; the party of
progress and equal rights, the only
party that has principle to guide it.
Its puro garments have been soiled by
base and designing men, but wont you
help us cleanse them '! Wo have pure
and true men iu our ranks?stand by us
now. Wo havo stripped for the fight

honest and economical administration of
affairs ii this State. Wc want you to
help us. If we win the fight and fail in
these beneficial results, then to fate wc

Is it net a fact that the Republican
party has brought di-gr.ice upon itself ?
Is it not a fact that this disgrace has
boon partly brought about by the de
ception practiced by some of its leaders ?
Is it not a fact that from pure greedi
ness Republicans commenced quarrell

party's organization ?
Is it not a fact that the Democrats
watched, these discussions closely, and
resolved to profit by them ?
Is it not a fact that our disputes have
been growing year after year, till now
they almost threaten to swallotf us
Is it not a fact that base and design

thrown overboard and our splendid
parly preserved ?
Is it not a fact that tho disaffection
of some men iu our ranks proceeds
more from their Democratic proclivities
than their alleged aversion to dishon
Is it not a fact that these men are
spotted, and will bo spurnod from us
when the first opportunity presents it
Ts it not a fact that some men who
havo boarded up their ill-gotten gains

Is it not a fact that thoy do this now
because they itch for a kind" of quasi

merits within the party and sift out the

makes the matter pretty hard. In the
beginning Cain was a bad fellow, lor
when bis father went nut to offer a

daughters, joined in prayer") but Cain
w is Etubbt rnly silcu't, as will be s< c i by j
the following dialogui:
A ili i m-?Son Cain, toy first born,
wherefore art thou silent ?
C,,i,i?Why should I sne.ik ?
Adam? To pray.

We suppose human na'.urcj is about

modern Cain h is as much of the stufl j
about him as his great mime sake Let |
then, what the latter said to his father,
''must I not die?" console hi it in t'iis j
