It is substantially this. In violation

made to the Democracy to get their sup.

wvrong, .aurcd to restore the Union and

nominations made at New York are the
very best that could have been made
for that purpose.. Thle elements to be
organised into a victorious army were
four-fold, TJ.o use a military figure,
there were four Array Corps to be or.

The great D)emocratcf Corps. Second

-The Conservative Republican Clorps.
F13ourth-The Civilized Southern Corps.
TIhe first, or Democratic Crops, wvas
fully organized, with ranks we~I ll led,
but not in sufficient nurmber to secure
the victory. There was the .War
Democratic Corps, which supported
Lincoln in 1804; but which, in consed
quenice of the great wrong, above.men
tuoned, was ready to sever itself from
the radical army under General Grant ;
and there was the Conservative Repub

speak of me as a leader, who1 for the
same reasons, were ready to Join the
grand army, and to do alf in their pow

two last are the reerniting corps. They
hold the balance of power. As a mat

victory is with us. If we cannot, victo.

our duty to do so. The very life of the
Constitution is involved, and with it, the
rights 4'f the -States, and the liberties of

the War was ended thrde years ago,
when a net ee'& was openC-d i 'pdlittal

high character, of unquestioned patriot

he will make a most able and dignified

Ah Appehi to the Oo*ardioeofthe AxneMi
Fellow-eitizens, we know you are a
set of whito livered hucksters. We
feel perflectly sure that although you
were aware a great crime had been
committed, you would refuae to hve
anything to do with the righting of its
victins, if somebody told you that there.
by you might lose a dollar; and, there
fore, we appeal to you, in perfect conlfi"
dence, to support, its inl our crimes. it,
is qtlite true that we have destroyed the
fundamental principle of 'iir Govern
ment, viz . a government founded oli
the consent of the governed, because
we have iniposed, against, their consent,
a most hiatUful governmeiInt on a large
portion of the country. 1-9Is niost trite
that we havo passed laws coafesselly
against the Constituiton ; we have done
this opeIly Mnd -urnblushmngly, fin
some instances we said~that the necessia
ties of war required it; sometim2s that
the ne-:essities of peace demanded It, and
more frequently laughed at our oppo
nents as "fools, clinging to the bi-oken
spar of a wreck." W herever we have
had the power we have thrust a
brutal, i g n o r a n t race Into place
and power, and put him over- 'vour
white brethren. We have niade it so
that ini an area of our country compris
ing 058,658 square miles, no' honorable,
intelligent., decent white man can assist,
you in restoring our cottu'.ry to its for
mer glory. We have created out, of the
virtue', the worth and the edneated part
of this section of the country a disaffect.
ed class. By these meatts we have,
through the Senate, secured for ouri par.
ty absolute control of this Government,
withi all of its 1-ich patronage, for at
least fostr more yeares
Now, we are'told that some of you
who,are thus skinned, disapprove of
seine of' our proceedings a that you are
not in favor of Congress interfering with
the right of suffrage in the States ithat
you dislhke to have your Presidential
election deoided by negro votes, and
that you object to carpet-bag Senators.
This may all very well be. But mark
you. Th~ese things ure all dlone. 'Phe
negro will upset or not as we decIde
your votes for President, and the car
pet-baggers and bogus Senators are ail
