The suspension of the Charloato
Republican is a significant fadt., bti
the causes whiuli are alleged by th
editor in his valedictory, are atil
more notable. As the official journ
of our Radical government, it wa
supposed to receive its life directl2
from the Treasury of the State, whil
at the same time it was heaping upoi
her good people the most nalignan
slander and abuse. Delighting if
"Ku Klux outrages," it never besi
tated to manufacture them for au
desired oconsion, and with a persia
tency in evil doing, eminently char
acteristic of the Radical faction i
our country, scattered broadcast if
the world its vile calumnies, Wit
great ability, and with what its owl
party thought, too much decency, tb

cause "we have refused to be the m<

that it isnl expensive luxury.
