ferring to the recent election in tb nt Dis?
trict, saja: K *
"The Democratic nominee for Con?
gress in this Distriet bss been beaten

their negro Blavoa, but by the-white men

themselves from th? pol?n: If tue non?

beaten iu ibo Presideutial election, but
we could bate turned np a majority of
2,000 or 8,000 on the other side for Col.
Mann. Tho Barn of it is, that we have
for mis-representot?voj f rom this District
a former officer of a negro regiment, n
carpet-bag interloper and incendiary of
the; first water, instead of a once Federal
officer, but now Demodtot, true friend
of the downtrodden South, and a faith?
ful representative of the people. Let
the blame restawbere it belongs. We
sholl not, in response to the general in?
dignation, indulge in denunciation of
those white men. We feel as sensibly as
any the grievous humiliation to which
they have subjected us, and the new
dangers they have opened up for us in
tho future. We think these gentlemen
will find out that they did have 'an inte?
rest' in this ?lection.* Their conrse and
its resulte will be sore to give rise to an
entirely new train of reflection in the
minds of that portion of our people who
will not and cannot endure the perma?
nent dominion of white aliens and black
r barbarians. They are already asking
themselves, are we forever to be the
i bondsmen and serfs of an invading gang
[ of plunderers-the insolent white sonni
tbat Northern radicalism ba? vomited
upon us? This question, and its answer,
flow logically ont o? the events, thoughts
and feelings of the last four years. The
reasoning takes this form : We have, as a
people, been patient, obi bow patient!
for years; because wc looked to a united
people at home, and to a more generous
feeling at the North, for relief from oar
intolerable burthens. It uever entered
into our plans or purposes to endure the
present condition of affairs forever. But
now that, after four years of endurance,
we find ourselves deserted by enough of
our own people to secure, the ascendancy
of C. B; rule over us, we are forced to
look about for other and new remedial
measures. Those of us who mean to bo
free, at all hazards, must do one of two
things-either, first, desert this C. B.
and negro-cursed land, and find a home
whoso air we eau breathe without sti?
fling, or we must resort to the ultima
ratio, and drive oar tyrants away. Had
tho white delinquents at the polls come
to the front, there bad been no occasion
for thoughts like those. The majority
of this people mean to have their liber?
ties, and if blood comes of it, its stain
will be upon the garments of those who,
having before them a peaceable solution
; of tho country's difficulties, aud refusing
to aid in it, have forced men to think of
/'These reflections lead us to believe
that we have entered upon a new phase
of this extraordinary revolution, and
that the years to come will not bo tu
quiet as those that have passed. It ii

men of our race, to sit down supinely
while they are taxed to a confiscation o!

EDITOR ATLANTA CONSTTTUTION: YOU
have generously tendered the nse cf
?'onr columns, that I may reply to a ma
ici ons attack, made by the Insurance
Times, of New York, upon an institu?
tion, with1 which many honorable gen?
tlemen, in this and other Southern
States, are connected. Until suggested
by friends not connected with the South?
ern Life Insurance Company-the insti?
tution assailed-I had not thought it ne?
cessary to reply, and for the following
First: All the agents of the Southern
Life bad been directed to use the article
in question as the best canvassing docu?
ment with whioh they could bo armed.
In the next place, I had supposed that
a journal whioh had no regard for f ruin,
and the endorsement of which ia a mat?
ter of mere bargain ana sale, would pro?
duce nc other eSeot by its attack, than
the one realized, viz: the strengthening
of the "Southern Life." I had supposed
that no Southorm man could bo influ?
enced by tho statements of a journal
which had published, as I had shown iu
a former card, twelvo wilful, unmitigated
falsehoods, in the short space of sixteen
lines. In the next place, it had occur?
red to me, that the very animus of this
editor, which is so patent, his hatred of
everything Southern, his contemptible
thrust at the incapacity of tho Southern
people to manage lifo insurance, his
meek suggestions in another article of
the same paper, that all Southern and
Western companies give up the business
of life insurance to tho North, and his
complaint of our olanishness, because,
forsooth, wo presumed to retain South?
ern money in Southern States, would
have been a sufficient answer for every
Southern man. For these reasons I had
thonght it unnecessary to write. At the
suggestion of friends, however, I reply
The Times evidences its ignorance of
facts, or its total disregard of truth, or
both, by its reference to Gen. Gordon F.
Granger as agent for this company. It
is, however, as well supported hero as
elsewhere in its article. Gen. Granger
has not now, nor ever had, any connec?
tion whatever with this company.
The Times says the loases of the South?
ern Life have been heavy, and compares
it with certain picked companies from
the North. The losses have been heavy,
but tho business has been heavy too. If
a merchant does one million of profita?
ble business, does ho not expect greater
loss in bad debts, otc. , than another who
does one-tenth of the business? If a
life company insures 5,000 lives, must it
not have, of necessity, a larger number
of its insured die, than another which
insures only 500 lives? The Southern
Life lost moro than its picked company
-the Great Western-but it did vastly
more business. Why did not tho editor
of thc Times givo tho amount of busi
ness done by each, thc amount of loss
by each, aud thou draw the comparison?
Does not tho merest child in figures un
derstuud this to bo the only way to get
at the ratio o? loss? Yes; but it did not
suit the purpose of the Times.. Let tho
facts be known. This picked company
is shown by the New York reports of
1808, to have received 800,247, and to
have paid out thc same year in cash, 863,
417. Thus ?xpendiug absolutely over
83,000 moro than it received. While tho
Atlanta Dcpartmont on gross premiums
to the amount of nearly 8200,000, spent
in losses and expenses of every descrip?
tion, ouly 39 per cent, of its receipts,
and the whole company increased its as?
sets-in six months-over 8126,000. He
sides, tho Times knows, as every insur?
ance man does, that losses equalize them?
selves in the course of years-so that the
general average is preserved. This is
the foundation of all lifo tables. As il?
lustrative of this, tho Atlanta Depart?
ment, in its immense business, receiving
nearly 1,000 applications has sustained
but one loss-Amos E. Ward, for 810,000
-since its organization, and the other
departments losing in but little greater
ratio. Hence, the heavy accumulation.
Yet, in the estimation of the Times, tho
Southern Life is unsound, and tho Great
Western perfectly good. Why so?
Tho animus of the article furnishes
the solution. Tho one is Southern-tho
other Northorn. Again this honest sheet,
seeing tho absurdity of its position, seeks
to stab the Southern Life by attucking
the integrity of its officers. It says tba
statement of our assets is "cooked up"
that is, fixed up to deceive-not true. In
other words, tho officers of this company,
in swonring to tho statement of assets and
liabilities, sworo falsely-perjured them?
selves. Does ho iutimuto that by any
possibility, the officers of his pet com?
panies could "cook up" statements? No!
How is this? Again, the animus of his
paper furnishes tho reply. One set of
officers aro Southern-tho other Northern.
The Times says the Southern Lifo is
oue on the high road to bankruptoy, but
its pets aro all sound. What do the
figures show? That the Southam Life
has 8300 for every 8100 of liability,
whilo the largest companies in the North
have less than 8150 of liability; yet, in
the estimation of tho Times, the South
era Life is bankrupt, and hi? oompanie*
perfectly sound. How sot Again, let
;the animas- at that pap?* jiaswer. The
bnejis ?ou?ern-the other Northern.
Th4f gist ^of , tho controversy is this
tlemen who r?putations art? identified
with this institution'ate to te believed,
ortho Times. Or, if Ootsia*JtoptTmony
is preferred, the Tim*c? or thTHtohthertr
The Times says tbe Southern Life is

The Memphis Appeal says: "Its assets
nr? now over $500,000.1 * * * * It
deserves the patronage of the Southern
people, and its business shows that it is?

strong in its endorsement.

The Constitution says: "By its relia?
bility, liberal features, and its patriotic

guarantees to polioy holders perfect se?
curity," and arges Southern peoplo to
patronize it, because it retains tho money
I might fill whole columns with ex?
tracts from leading journals in South Ca?
rolina and elsewhere, but those luay an?
swer for an offset fo>* tho Times-possi?
Tb** Times, however, charges that- we
pay for these pnfiV. But is the Times
paid for its puffs? Oh, no. These jour?
nals can be bought; tho Times cannot.
How is this? Plainly the ?uswer must
be-these are Southern, that Northern.
Bnt I deny that one cent wnsjever paid
for any endorsements I have quoted. I
did pay pome of the Southern papers to
insert a former card in reference to this
sume card, others would receive nothing.
I propose to contiene to pay to got these
facts before tho people. Tho Southern
Life is able to pay: it will make money
by spreading them before thc country,
and it will continue to do it.
Tho Tiines will find, I imagine, that it
has undertaken a difficult task, in trying
to teach the people of these States, that
there are not brains or integrity enough
in tho South to manage lifo insurance;
that the officers of this company, at Mem?
phis, have sworn falsely; men, whose
high and responsible positions as railroad
and bank presidents, indicated tho un?
limited confidence of the country in their
common sense, integrity and financial
ability. It will not bo easy to convince
the South that the long list of Southern
gentlemen, connected with this institu?
tion, are engaged in n grand scheme to
defraud and swindle the widows and or?
phans of the South ; or that they will
settle less fairly with policy holders than
companies from the Times' section
some of whom boast of accumulated mil?
lions by the forfeiture of rebel policies
who have one price for the North, an?
other for the South, and who have en?
deavored to purchase the policies of rebel
widows for a contemptible pittance of
the sum insnred. He mistakes the
Southern people when he supposes them
so ignorant of life insurance, as to be?
lieve a company from the North, with
less thau $150 of assets to $100 of liabili?
ty is stronger and safer than a Southern
company, which has $300 for every $100
of liability. Or when ho imagines tho
South so North struck as to believe, be?
cause a company hails from that section,
it can pay its president, as a salary,
825,000 of the policy helpers' money,
and another cCTcrs agents forty-five per
cent, commissions, and yet be more eco?
nomically and better managed than a
Southern company which pays its presi?
dent-who in financial ability is the poer
of any-only $3,000, and its best agents
less than one-half of the above commis?
sions; or that a company from tho North,
which pays fifty to fifty-seven per cent,
to its stockholders, is better for thc in?
sured thau the Southern Life, which not?
withstanding its rapid accumulations,
has not paid one dollar to its stockhold?
ers, but has paid forty per cent, to its
The Times began the war upon South?
ern institutions, and strikes the Southern
Life only because it is the pioneer. The
success of this compnny has ohecked tho
drain of money from our section, hence
tho Tinies' complaint of our sectionalism.
We make our humble acknowledgments
of being intensely sectional, if an honest
effort to retain Southern money at home
lu conclusion, I acknowledge my in?
debtedness to tho Times for the opportu?
nity he has afforded of getting these facto
before tho peoplo. The Southern Life
invites its further attacks. If tho solid
assets of this company, and its patriotic
purposes, do not commend ii. to the con?
fidence and support of or.r people, it will
never ask the aid of the Times, If such
sheets cnn destroy the confidence of the
Southern people in the directors and

the addition of platos, knives and forks,
a decided improvement on forked sticks

little repellant to good taste, to see your

his peculiar taste, to throw it back and

Washington next week. Claims amount
, ing to $50,000,000 are already filed! It
strikes us that there is a common-sense
policy that should govern in respect to
American citizens abroad. If they go
abroad to enjoy foreign institutions, let
them tuke the bitter with the sweet and
settle the ace ou .t for themselves. If they
go for the sole purpose of "skinning"
people less shrewd than themselves, lot
them take the cons?quences. We do not
see the wisdom of encouraging our citi?

They seem determined to get rich at all
events, by trumping up claims for the

When American citizens are abused as
to their personal liberty, let the Govern?
ment see to it; but the true W?J \r?h ait
claims is the short way, to wit: if they

let them abide the result. The wholo

"If men or women could but find the
fabled fountain which is said to restore
health, and strength, and beauty, with
what eagerness they would rush to drink
its waters." It is found in the S. T.
1860-X. The sale of the PLANTATION
BITTERS is without a precedent ia the
history of the world. They are at once
the most speedy, strengthening health
restorer ever discovered. It requires
but a single trial to understand this.
MAGNOLIA WATER.-Superior to the
best imported German Cologne, and sold
at bab! tho price. A7J3
A STCUBORN FACT.-There is scarcely
any disease in whioh purgative medicines
aro not more or less required, and much
suffering might be prevented were they
more generally used. No person can
feel well while a costive habit of body
prevails. Besides, it soon generates se?
rious disoases, which might have been
avoided by a timely use of cathartic me?
dicines. For this purpose, DR. TUTT'S
VEGETABLE LIVER PILLS are confidently
recommended. They are mild, safe,
prompt and uniform in their action.
They contain no merenry. Persons may
eat and drink as usual, and they may be
taken at any time. A7 6
I have, for many years, been opposed
to the use of calomel, having suffered
severely in my family from us bad ef?
fects, and have looked around in every
direction to find a remedy for bilious?
ness, torpid liver, dyspepsia, etc., which
I know nearly every one suffers from
more or less in this climate. And I be?
lieve I have found it in SIMMONS' LIVER
REGULATOR. I havo known this medi?
cine since 1839, and hnve seen it used in
hundreds of coses, and can confidently
assort that it has always exceeded my
expectations, and cured cases that were
thought hopeless. It is a duty I almost
think I owe to the suffering to let them
know what has relieved so many, to my
knowledge. Respectfully yours,
MACON, GA. A7J3
"FRESH AS A MAIDEN'S BLI:SH" is the
pure peachy Complexion which follows
tho uso of 'Hagan's Magnolia Balm. It
is tho true secret of beauty. Fashionable
Ladies in Society understand this.
The Magnolia Balm changes the rustic
Country Girl into a City Belle more ra?
pidly than any other thing.
Redness, Sun-burn, Tan, Freckles,
Blotches and all effeots of tho Summer
Sun disappear when it is used, and a
genial, cultivated, fresh expression is
obtained which rivals the Bloom of
Youth. Beauty is possible to all who
invest 75 ceuts at any respectable store,
and insist on getting the Magnolia Balm.
Use nothing but Lyon's Kathairon to
dress the Hair. J17 J13
