The subjoined ext rao ts from kb?
ritual of tho "Uni?n League of
America" ia traueferred, verbatim ei
Urerntim* #oin ft tattered origina!,
which, after seeing much ,hard sor
vioo in the States of Louisiana and
Mississippi, fell into the hands of
'^i? of the J-fa'alrt correspondents "a
it section of tho country. Ita
authenticity is attested by tho certifi?
cate and Signatures of "J. M. Ed?
munds,.'President National Council
Union League of America," ?nd
..Theodore F. Stokes, Recording
Secretary." It is all stupid bosh, of
co rse; but the fact that this organi?
zation numbers from ten to fifty
thousand negro members in every
Southern State, ench of whom is
compelled to contribute fifty cents a
week-two dollars a month-of his
hard-earned money to sustain the
peripatetic emissaries of the League,
renders it at least as wicked as it is
powerful. Tho formula of initiation
would seem to be a clumsy burlesque
on Masonry. The only point in tho
whole thing lies in tho oath that the
candidate "will voto only for and
none but those who advocate and
support the great principles of the
League, to fill any office of honor,
profit or trust, in either the State or
general Government." All the twad?
dle about education and the rest of
it, is only so much chaff to cover up
this grain of corn. By tho fancied
terrors of this oath, and tho accom?
panying red fire and tom-foolery,
thousands of negroes have been con?
trolled in their electoral franchise
and compelled to vote for just such
candidates ns the carpet-baggers
chose to put before them. It was
the discovery of this identical ritual
and the use the Democrats made ol
it in convincing the negroes that the
obligation they had taken was illegal
and not binding upon them, which
carried the State of Mississippi and
enabled the Democrats to defeat the
proposed Constitution with negro
votes. The following extracts have
been made from the ritual:

and 'hat if ever called to fill any

principles set forth by this League.
And further, that I will protect and

I will never, in any manner or form,

or persons, not worthy members of

I acknowledge myself firmly bound

Besponse by the Members-To this

The oath which you have taken of
your own free will and accord cannot

that all men are created equal, en?

is liberty regulated by law.

been imparted, the P. may give a
short history of the origin, present
condition aud futuro prospects of the
organization. He should impress
upon thc members the impropriety
ot using tho signs, Arc, too often or
carelessly, as it detracts from their
value and increases their chances of

officer to commit to memory hi3 part

Any portion of tho foregoing

words may bo substituted.
The council room should be ren?
dered attractive by its emblems and

should bo made instructive by cere?

good supply of appropriate reading

a member who cannot read with

that this is done. 'Wo must thus

".Cliuton, Iowa, has a saw-mill that
employs 1,000 men.
In the contest b?ttveen tho radical
and the Democratic partier;, in the
approaching election, the following
points of difference present them?
Tpe Republicans charge the Demo-.
crabs Os being a war party, jftn^dijtbjtf
their ?noces? will promulgate stine
and disorder in the country,, In re?
ply, the Democrats were the peace
party in 1860, and are the peaco
party now-and ns a guarantee of
their principles have placed a gentle?
man in civil life at the head of their
ticket; while on the other hand, the
Republican is the war party of tho
country. It began the war in 1860,
and its action in making the civil
powers of ten States subordinate to
tho military, and in nominating the
General of the armies for the Presi?
dency, is proof enough of its belli?
Under Democratic rule, previous
to 1860, the expenses of the Govern?
ment did not exceed $90,000,000 per
annum. In 1866, in time of peace,
under a Republican administration,
thc expenses were $460,000,000.
Government bonds, undera Demo?
cratic administration, were held at
$1.16. Under tho Republican rule
these bonds now sell at 70 cents.
While the Democrats were in
power, the average tax of each voter
in the United States was about $15
per head. Under the Republican
administration of 1867, it was about
an average of $77 to each voter.
The Democrats, in I860, had a
public debt of only $20,000,000. Tho
Republicans have swelled it up to
Tho average liability of each voter
under the public debt of 1860, was
about $3.50. The average liability
of each voter under the present debt
is about $466.00.
Under Democratic rule, the coun?
try was prosperous and happy. Pub?
lic officers discharged their duty faith?
fully; and bribery, corruption and
? swindling iu high places was rarely
heard of. Under Republican rule,
the people aro at the mercy of an
irresponsible military and negro
power. Life and property are un?
safe, and liberty has fled the laud.
Swiudliug and corruption is the order
of the day among those in power, and
the amounts annually stolen from the
I Treasury would exceed tho whole ex
I penses of the Government, while the
Democrats were in power.
Before the present party came into
power. Congress legislated for the
common welfare. The Republioan
Congress has legislated only for its
party, and with the sole object of
perpetuating its power. A Republi?
can form of Government, while in
the hands of the Democrats, was a
working success. Under the rule of
the Republican party, it is an acknow?
With such facts before the people,
they surely ought not to hesitate
which of these two parties commends
itself most to their favor. If they
value peaco, liberty and happiness,
they will support that party whose
record is the safest guarantee of such
blessings. If, on the other hand,
they prefer taxation, strife, discord,
the loss of national character, and the
destruction of the public credit, mili?
tary trials and military prisons,
anarchy and universal misrule, then
they will support the party whoso
record stinks with these outrages
upon those who trusted it.
