GREAT INDUCEMENTS TO CLUBS.
The importance af the great political con?
test opon which we havo now fairly entered
rendara the dissemination among the people
of sound political views and accurate and ear?
ly Information of the progresa and incidents
of the canvass, a matter of peculiar interest
and expediency. Every individual who baa
any stake in the welfare of these Southern
States, should give an active, personal and un?
flagging support to the candidates of tho
?National Democracy-SEYMOUR and BLAIR, A
triumph of the Radicals will result in the
utter desolation .-and nun of the South, and
tho placing of an ignorant and brutal race in
all positions and places of honor and trust, to
the exclusion of the white race. The govern?
ment must be wrested from the thieves and
plunderers who now have control of it, and
power placed in the bands of a party pledged
to give peace to a distracted country, and to
make it a government for white men, and not
for negroes. Tt ia only n??eeaary that tho peo?
ple should, be thoroughly informed io aooom
pfish tine, and THE NEWS w?l be an admirable
means of difErisiii g this information. In order
io place the paper within the reach of all, we
- have adopted a scale of reduced rates of sub?
scription for the four months covering the
Presidential canvass, and offer besides peculiar
inducements for the formation of dubs. We
are determined that Tm HEWS shall be tho

20_The attack on the Paraguayan fortress
Hrrrnalta, news of which has been daily ex?
pected for a fortnight past, took plaoeon the
16th of July. In the morning the combined
Brazilian and' Argentine forces, under com?
mand of Marquis de- Capias, advanced to the
assault in three columns, amounting in tho
aggregrate to 10,000 men. At the. same time a
heavy fire was opened upon the fortifications
from the fleet of iron-dads and land batteries.
After desperate and prolonged fighting
at the- foot of the entrenchments, the
allied colnrnnfl retired, without effecting a
lodgment within the en amy's works. The
loes of the allies is reported at three
thousand, killed and wounded. Nothing
is known of. the losses. of the Paraguay?
ans, but as they fought ander cover of their
entrenchments, it is supposed the number of
their killed and wounded will tall far behind
that of tho allies. The allied force in Gran
ohaoo also advanced, with the object of cut?
ting, off the communications of Lopez. They
found them protected by a large body af Para?
guayans, protected by breastworks. Atter an |
obstinate engagement the allies withdrew to
their former position. The casualties are not
stated. The hopes of the war party in Brazil
rested opon the success of this enterprise, and

*The Trouble? In Tennessee.
The Nashville (Tenn.) Union, of 18th inst.,
gives a detailed, account of two tragical events
of recent occurrence in that State, which have
.heretofore been briefly noticed in telegraphic
dispatches, and which it waa unfairly attempt?
ed to give a political aspect to, omitting the
provocation, especially in the first case. The
Union says :
Some six weeks since, a yoong girl of respect?
able family in Williamson County, Damed EzeU,
was assaulted and ravished by a negro. He
was pursued, arrested and lodged in jail. The
brother cf the giri, stung with rage and shame
at the brutal outrage on his sister, ? sse m bled his
friends and forcibly seized him from the law,
and avenged her wrongs in the blood of her
assailant. A short, while afterwards, a party
of negroes, in company with some whites,
, waylaid young Ezeli and killed him. Evidence
beyond all 'doubt having been obtained that
one Bearfield, a white man, residing in Frank?
lin, had instigated, hired, and perhaps partici
Sted in the murder of Ezeli, a party of his
ends, some nuder mask and others without
disguise, entered the tonn on Saturday night
hut, and in torn killed Bearfield. In tho me?
lee, a negro employed by Bearfield, but not
known to nave been implicated in the assassi?
nation of Ezeli, was accidentally shot and
killed. This, in brief, is the Franklin affair.
: The Waynesboro' affray ie thus told on re?
liable authority : A body of negroes, at an iron
furnace in that region, had for some time been
openly drilling with arms, and threatening the
peace of the community. A. company of citi?
zens assembled and went to the furnace for
the parp?se of remonstrating with the negroes
against their course, and, if necessary, to dis?
perse them in order to avert the execution of
their threats. They found that tatter counsels
bad previously prevailed, and nlgafctuxbance
occurred. On their return, the S?fBjP, with s
posse, intercepted them, au altercation en?
sued, the Sheriff firing on the citizens. They
pursued and received a volley from his posee,
killing three or four and wounding as many.
Rumors of the affair had spread all over the
country, and when the mall carrier left the
town was picketed by a large body of resolute
men who are determined to take the Sheriff
and his posse.
While sanguinary calumnies of General For?
rest are freely circulated by Radicals, the
Memphis Appeal of the 18th gives the follow?
ing piece of information:
About three days ago a report reaohed Gen.
Forrest in this city that a number of bush?
whackers, who were known to be deserters
from the Confederate army, were engaged in
making raids on the colored people of Madison
County, with faces blackened and otherwise
disguised, calling themselves members of the
?u-?lux-?lan, i.nd ordering all arms, such as
pistols and guns, to be delivered into their
possession. The General determined to put a
stop to the marauding of these gentry, so he
called together a few of his old followers in the
army, and has dispatched them to Madison,
with instructions to arrest the Ku-Kluxea ana
hand them over to the civil authorities for
punishment. The result of the expedition ls

TO THE PEOPLK OF CHARLESTON.
The following address to the people of
Charleston was unanimously adopted at a
meeting of citizens, held at the Hibernian Hall,
on Friday afternoon last :
The disturbance of the public peace which
has marked the proceedings of a portion of
the population of this city; the threats and
the preparations which are uttered and made,
and indicate a fixed-purpose to inaugurate and
prosecute acts of violence and wrong; the in?
tolerance which bas interupted meetings of
citizens peaceably conducted, and forced them
to terminate their proceedings; submitting to
this indignity and wrong rather than by insist?
ing on their rights, furnish an occasion for tu?
mult and riot. The insult and defiance to the
constabulary force of the city; the interruption
of peaceable citizens in their avocations, and ill
treatment of them without provocation; the
reckless manner in which nightly meetings
and processions are conducted to the great
annoyance of the people, and the peril of such
as may be obliged to be near those who are en?
gaged in them; the temper which has thus
converted a city, remarkable for its erder and
quiet, into a place where noise and violence
have become of frequent occurrence; the or?
ganization of bodies of mon ia military array,
drilling and practicing thom in the arts of war;
and the increasing spirit of aggression with
which, in all of these respects, the newly en?
franchised population of this city and the adja?
cent islands have conducted themselves; admon?
ish all who have at heart the peace of this com?
munity and the welfare of all classes of its popu
a ti on that, unless timely averted, the purposes
of wicked mea will be accomplished in deadly
strife, and in the streets of the city scenes will
be enacted which all good men will deeply de?
plore. With the solemn conviction that so
great a calamity ?B now impending over us
with. no. partisan temper, and with no reference
to political opinions or parties; intent only,
bat deeply intent, upon the protection of per?
sons and property; of persons of all classes;
of property, to whomsoever belonging; we are
forced by convictions we honestly entertain,
by apprehensions whioh we cannot disregard,
to warn our fellow-citizens of the great danger
with which they are threatened. We counsel
them most earnestly to the continuance of tbat
great forbearance they have hitherto mani?
fested. We urge them not to be betrayed into
resentment, which, however natural or how
much provoked, will be in many quarters un?
willingly credited. But we do in the same
temper, and consistently with that forbear?
ance, and the control of that resentment, advise
them of the necessity, the imperative necessi?
ty that in our opinion exists, for them to pro?
tect themselves, in their persons and their
property. The threats of incendiarism and of
violence, of rapine and spoliation, are no lon?
ger confined to the secret conclave; but are
uttered to inflame the passions of a population,
unhappily too credulous and too oas?y mis?
guided and betrayed. The appeals which have
been thus made; appeals which have been
made in public presses, and repeated in every
manner in which they could most deep?
ly excite those to whom they were ad?
dressed; have, unhappily for us, and os un?
happily for those who are the victims of bad
and designing men, produced their unfortu- ,
nate results. And a population new in the en?
joyment of their freedom ; new in the enjoy?
ment of the highest privileges of the citizen;
nave been fired with a sentiment of hostility
to the white population of the city and the
State, and taught that their freedom could
only be secured by the most degrading vassal?
age of the white citizens of the State. We do
most honestly and unreservedly declare, that
so far as wo have any knowledge or belief, in?
terference has never been attempted by the
white citizens of this city or State with the
fullest exercise by. the freedmen, individually
or collectively, of all the rights, civil and politi?
cal, which they asserted as belonging to them.
They have hsd^Keir meetings, and never with
interf?rence ; they have voted, and never with
disturbance; they have assembled in conven?
tion, passing a constitution for their govern?
ment and ours, without interruption; and un-> '
der tbat constitution they are now Bitting as a
legislature, framing laws for the people of the
I State, removing officers, imposing taxes, and
exercising the functions of legislation which
involve the property, life and liberty of the
citizen; without a show of violence, without
almost a complaint on the part of those who
are excluded from all participation in proceed?
ings which so deeply and intimately affect
them. But all of this has not been sufficient to
satisfy them that the privileges BO en?
joyed by them were complete, unless
they included the absolute domination
and control of the white population:
a domination and control so exclusive and ab?
solute that it would embrace person and pro?
perty, and even extend to thought and speech.
To this condition is the white population of
the city now at this time reduced; and in this
condition they are forced to see the evidence
of a further purpose, to enforce this denial to
them of every privilege, and to bold every
right which belongs to them subject to the
caprice of those who are the dupes and victims
of the bad men who have poisoned their
hearts; and for the most selfish and base pur?
poses, destroyed for them the comfort, con?
tentment and happiness they might have
We who now speak to you, whom you well
know, whose motives you will not misunder?
stand, repeat to you the warning of the dan?
ger with which you are threatened. There is
no organized and reliable force in the State by
which you can be protected. The police force
of the city is utterly inadequate to secure the
peace against such combinations as threaten
its continuance. - And until, and unless the
President of the United States, as the com?
mander-in-chief of the army and navy of the
United States, has power, under the constitu?
tion and laws of the United States, to provide
at the present time, in some mode, for your
protection, we do not know where it can be
found outside of such defence as you can make
We need not advise; we aro sure, without ad?
vice, that you will in no wise interfere with
or disturb the enjoyment of any right or privi?
lege which has been given to any person
or class of persons. That you will ab3tain
from everything which can be perverted into
an interference with any meetings called by
those who may differ with you in political
questions; and that in no wise will you ob?
struct or control the free exercise of the right
of suffrage. At the same time we will not and
do not counsel you to forbear or abstain from
the exercise of privileges which belong to you;
or the maintenance of your rights to the same;
with calmness and wi th 'fir nones e. You have
the right to meet-the right to discuss-the
right to vote-the right to be secure in your
person and your property. These rights none
can deny, and none can take them away or im?
pair the free exercise and enjoyment of them.
Your moderation, combined with calmness
and firmness, may happily enable all to escape
the danger of strife and collision. God grant
that it may be so I But with whatever earnest?
ness we cherish the hope, we have no assur?
ance that the hope will be realized. It is for
others, not for us, to decide the question. Bnt
it is for you, in any and every contingency, to
be able to show, that you have not been the
aggressors; that you have done no wrong; vio?
lated no law; outraged no propriety. It is for
you, if strife should unhappily come, to be
able to show that if you were even willing to
purchase the absence of strife by the sacrifice
of every sentiment of manhood and citizens hip,
even that would not parchase security for life
or property. To the end that no effort should
be left untried to avert the danger with which
we are now threatened, we have request?
ed the Hon. James B. Campbell to go to. Wash
f?gten, and to represent to the President, to the
General of the Army and to-"RS Secretary' of
War, the danger which threatens us; and to ob?
tain, if it can be had, that protection which
will Becure to all classes their just rights; and
Bave a community from anarchy and violence.
We ask it that law may be maintained, order
enforced, pease-secured, and every one of eve?
ry class protected in his rights. We ask it,
that the great end of civil society may be ac?
complished; and tho rights which the Constitu?
tion guarantees to each citizen may be peace?
We have undertaken to address you at thia
time, because the occasion does not admit of
delay: and because we would not add to the ex?
citement which now exists, that whioh might
arise from a public meeting called for the con?
sideration of this matter. We have no pur?
pose but that in which all classes of citizens
will deeply sympathize; and to which we hope
and believe all good men of all classes will giro
their warm support.

"WOODVILLE, MISS., Joly 81, 1868.
Fellow Colored Citizen* of Wilkinson :
The time has come when our race must be
saved I An election was held in this ch ate to
vote on a constitution that was framed by the
convention held in Jackson, commencing Jan?
uary 7,1868. That constitution was defeated
by a large majority. Why ? Because it was
tyrannical, overbearing, and ruinous to the
State and citizens thereof, The colored vot?
ers of this State acted wisely and justly in vot?
ing against it.
Tne question presents itself to us-wh)
framed that constitution? Was it men who
had the interest of the ci tizeos of this State
at heart ? No I bot men who came from the
North as adventurers,' to monopolize the offices
and dis treas the peaceable cit zens I God
would not suffer such to be done. He used
bis Almighty power, and slew those who tried
to devour ns, and to-day our State is saved.
Now, fellow-citizens, yon are living in the
South I Your interest is at stake in the South !
My motto, for the people to prosper in a State,
is for all to live peaceably together. Yon are
living among the Southern people; yon have
been raised np among them, although they
held yon in slavery 1 Forget everything of
that kind 1 Let the past be the past I Come
nnder the protecting wings of your only and
best friends I They love yon and study your
intereste. Yon are a poor people I Come, and
your starving children snail be fed I
The Radicals have made yon great promises
-such as "Come with ns, and we will do yon
aoo?" What good have they done yon?.
Have they given yon the homes that they
promised? Have they fed your children?
Have they given yon anything? No, bnt they
have caused yon to suffer hunger and want.
Now, save yourselves I Come with ns, and
let ns live peaceably together. The time has
come when -ou can save yourselves. More
anon. Your f?llow-oitizen.

MORE SENSIBLE ADVICE FROM A NORTH OAROLI
' HA FREEDMAN.
The Charlotte (N. C.) Times publishes the
following card, written by a freedman, and ad?
dressed to the colored people of Mecklenburg :
I am one of your number. From a sense of
doty I became a Democrat. I wish to appeal
to you, not because I wish you to join mv party,
but because I see that yon are in danger.
Wicked white men-mean white men, that are
skinning yon every day, and intend to take the
whole hide off-have already made von behove
a hundred hes, and they are making yon be?
lieve them now. They will get all they can ouL
of yon, and then turn yon over to the meroy o'
the white people tbnt yon-are now turning your
bioks upon. Yon are freemen, indeed, when
yon dare not think, or speak, or act, except just
as your white Radical masters order yon to do.
Yon are obliged to vote lor them, and not even
for your own color.
They say Conservatives and Democrats
want to make ? . slaves again. If they did,
these men coi: not, and would not if they
could, preven ; if. They did not make yon free,
and can't kee > ? on free. Yon just know the
respectable white people of the South don't
want to make us slaves again, and could not if
they wanted to. I was a slave-am now free.
I e?peo: to die free; but I want to be respected
by the decent white people. Aa it is clear they
intend to mle, say what we may, it would be
well to make them our friends. The colored
people had better take warning in time and
show that they have some sense.
I write this of my own accord, as of my
own accord I joined the Democratic party,
and intend to continue in it.
A SPEECH FROM GENERAL BLAIR.
Frank Blair, the Democratic candidate for
Yice-President, was recently in Benton as one
of the Commissioners of the Pacido Railroad,
and was compelled by his admirers there to
make a speech. He delivered himself as fol?
lows : .
I regret I cannot talk to yon an hour or two.
[Cries of "Go on. go on."J You don't look
much like bondholders [mnob laughter], and
were you a little further east 1 know your, votes
would tell fearfully against the party of moral
ideas and excessive taxes for the poor; a party
which, by fa<r means or foul, ie bound to wm in
the coming campaign-if it can. [Loud cheer
in e.] This Radical corruption must censo. Next
fall it will c^ase, and we nope forever. Our mot?
to is, Justice to Wnite Men. The Democratic
Slattorm adopted by the pan*, has a heady
ightened thousands from the cu ward ly ranks
of the Radicals, a: d thousands more -will flee.
[A voice-"The Democratic flea is too mudj.' for
them;" great laughter.] The great masscSv'
this mighty republic has no affinity with the
negro. [Prolonged applause.] The right of
electivo franchise is for the white man alone;
and the ruinous system introduced into the
Radical porty and platform is opening the eyes
of the people to euch an extent that overwhelm?
ing majorities will crown our bright, prond
banners with such a glorious victory that the
huzzas will shake the very earth to its founda?
tions. [Immense and enthusiastic applause.]
M THE MAN ON HORSEBACK."
The last of the "dissolving views" of the
New York Herald is the "one-man" on "a
charger." That paper says :
As the first result of the American election,
the people of the United States will have cho?
sen a new President for four years. Many
thousands of men of a different race, just libe?
rated from slavery, wiJ 1 vote, and a further dis?
turbance of the constitutional equilibrium
must follow the election of either of tne candi?
dates now before the people. How will it
eventuate ? In a one man power or reunion?
The appearances moline to the former. We
have entored on a revolutionary era. The
coming elections will herald revolutionary
changes in both hemispheres.
THE DESPERATE PURPOSE OF THE RADICALS
At a meeting of the Radicals, recently held
at Saline, Missouri, one Johnson, candidate for
Attorney-General of the State, used the follow?
ing language :
There could and should be but one result to
the election thia fall-that Gen. Grant, backed
by the army and supported by the whole Radi?
cal party, would prevent with the bayonet tue
inauguration of a Democratic administration
at Washington, and that the Radical State
Government at Jefferson would resist and put
down in the same way any attempt to inaugu?
rate the Democratic porty into power in this
This was not Baid under excitement, for dur?
ing a speech of two hours, ho repeatedly urged
as a reason why Democrats should not vote
any but tho Radical ticket, that their votes
would else be thrown away; for no matter what
the result of the election, thoy (the Radicals)
were fully determined that a Democratic ad?
ministration should not be established, except
through a bloody civil war.
RADICAL ANXIETY TO CAREY THE SOUTHER fi
ELECTIONS BY FORCE.
A Washington telegram to the New York
Herald says :
The Southern Radicals are still urging the
Radical Congressional Committee to issue a
call, as agreed on at the last session, deciaing
that Congress onght to convene in September.
Everybody here undera tanda what this means.
The Southern States are going to vote for Sey?
mour and Blair. The colored men. deceived
by the carpet-bag element, are coming c /er to
the support of the Democratic ticket. The
object of the Radicals, therefore, is to get
Congress to reassemble and pass the bill to
distribute arms, to the Southern Governors,
with the purpose in view of using them in the
elections." As leading Radicals, hie Wash
borne, of Illinois, and Boy den, of North Caro?
lina, declared in July that the passage of snob
a law would inaugurate civil war, it remains to
be seen if Senator Horgan and Mr. Scbenck,
who are the respective chairmen of the Con?
gressional Republican Committees of the Sen?
ate and House, will decide that a session in
September is necessary.
THE SEPTEITBEE SESSION OF COKOBESS NOT
The New York Times (Republican) says :
We see no necessity whatever for the session
of Congress next month, which a number of
prominent Southern Radicals are working for.
It is not demanded by the Btate of affairs in
the South, by the conduct of President John?
son, by any exigency connected .with the
Presidential election, or by any necessity of
the country. We have no doubt that the War
Department will do all that is practicable at
the present time for the maintenance of peace
and order in Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, and
elsewhere in the South. And, as for the secur?
ing of a fair election and the liberty of voting
to the freedmen of the Southern States, these
are matters that most be provided for by the
State authorities. As things now stand, we
can see nothing but harm tu the public in?
terests from a September session ot Con?
The Washington Star says : "Letters re?
ceived here from members of Congress are
almost unanimously adverse to a meeting of |
Congress in September. Most of the mem?
bers are so much absorbed in the home canvass
that it ia deemed to be almost a matter of im?
possibility to get a quorum here in case a
meeting should be called. A sharp emer
gency in the South might tiing enough
ere to do business, bnt unless something
serions should transpire there, it is quite cer?
tain th ,t no SeptemDei session will be called."

but I don't feel well." Look at the countenance of
the man or woman who makes thia reply, and you
