The commitice do notAdeem it ne

vessity of reforn. The burdens to
which we are subjerted nrn greater
than we can Lear, and the proof is
found in the fact that the houses and
lands of the proprietary class are be
ing forleited to the State, in quantity
and nunber nithout a parallel, from
t.heer inability to pny the taxes.
There can be no stronger or more
fiistre.sing proof of oppression than
the systematic confismcation by the

where the- faithful weue disoussing I
Itho prospects of the party fot the v

principles it should profess during a
the canvass, or whetler it was prudent r
to..profess any at all. Mr. Lynch is a <
young negro, born In slavery, Hle' was a
entirely Nitbout.educatoQn until the b
Union armies at Natchez made him a il
Oontraband. Then he picked up .a i
little FohooliPg, and after the war
was Made a justibe of the Petbe under

the jshrewd, glib, active, ambitious t'
colored meb in whom Northern ad-- a
venturere find their aptest. allies and si
iistrumients in the nanipulation of b
thie Southern spotrapies. We know
nothing disopeditable to him per.
sonally, but the ean b6 do ttestion ti
of the class to which he belongs. n
Mr. Lynch spoke of the Civil Rights 1
bill, and he was, of courgl, not well 4
pleased at the manner in which the .e
Rouse had treated It ; but he-amsured
the caucus of the strict party fidelity
of the colored people. There was
to be no reconciliation between them ti
and their old masters. They would a
not believe that slavery was beyond t
revival. They would' not trust a T
Southern white man with their liber- ly
ties. They eared comparatively f,
little for honesty in Oflice-this at
least was the generpA drift of hie ad,
dress-they' could pardon fran4, eor. a
ruption, Ilentiousness, anfthing tj
n.an or disgraceful, to an oithodox r,
Republican politician ;-.,arid hey -
would sooner vote for a tbief lite b
Moses than an upright gentleman y
like Lamar. , These are the conclu. a
sions 'ogically to be drawfrorn the f,
remaiks of Mr. Lynch, as we collate h
I them fiomn the reports of the 'varions
papers ; and it will be seen that they
are equivalent to a notice to the par. I
ty that it may nominate any rascal c
thoy please, and the Southern no- t
groes will swallow him. b
In forecasting the Political Situa. f
r tion, as it *ill be developed In the t
Presidential struggle of 1870i, we are
r confronted by a few facts which may
as will be stated now. The republi- b
can party has lost much of its prestige (
because it has permitted the
public offices to bo honeycombed with
corruption, anid has shown itself in C
capable of dealing with the great .
and important measures of finance I
and taxation. The democray, on
the other hand, has disaplayed al. I
most equal incapacity, and ainO the
canvass of 1876 it is likely to pr'esent
as feeble a platform s that of 1872. 'o
