Address of Dr. Peter Bryce.
In tho Tuscaloosa Observer wo find a
very complimentary notice of an address
delivered before tho Young Mon's Chris?

mer townsman, Dr. Petor Bryce. Dr.
Bryce, at one timo associated with Dr.
Parker in our Asylum, is now Superin?
tendent fof the "State Hospital for the
Insane" in Alabama. His subject on
the occasion alluded to was, "Tho Mind
and Canses of its Derangement. " Judg?
ing from tho roport given of tho modo
in which Dr. Bryoo treated bis subject,
we are led to conclude that he discharged
his duty most ably aud acceptably. Wo
are informed that tho lecture was atten?
tively listenod to by a highly iutelligout
and appreciative audience. His friends
in Sonth Carolina will be pleased to
learn of the high stand that Dr. Bryce
has taken in tho department of labor to
which he has directed his energies.

Address or tho Democratic Htmbcr? ot
To tho People of the United Slates:
Oar presence and official duties at
Washington have enabled us to become
fully acquainted with the notions and de?
signs of those who control the Radical
party, and wo feel oalled upon to utter a
few words of warning against the alarm?
ing strides they have made towards tho
centralization of power ia the hands of
Congress and the Exeoutive. The time
and attontion of the Radical loaders
have been almost wholly directed to do
vising such legislation as will, in thoir
view, bent presorve their ascendancy,
and no regard for the wiso restraints im?
posed by tho Constitution has checked
their reckless and desperate carcor. Tho
Presidout of tho United States has been
formally announced ns a candidato for
re-election. Tho declarations of bin solf
: ish supporters have been echoed by a
subsidized press, and tho disciplino of
I pnrty has already made adhesion to his
personal fortunes tho supremo test of
political foalty. The partisan legislation
to which wo refer was decreed and
shaped in secret caucus, whore t ho ex?
tremest counsels always dominated, and
was udopted by a subservient majority,
if not with tho iutout, certainly with tho
effect to place in tho hands of the Presi?
dent power to command his own reno?
mination, and lo employ the army, navy
and militia, at bis sole discretion, us a
moans of subserving his porsoual ambi?
tion. Wheu tho sad experience of the
last two yearn, so disappointing to tho
hopes aud generous coulidonco of tho
country, is considered, in connection
with tho violent utterances and rash pur?
poses of those who control tho Presi?
dent's policy, it is not surprising that
tho gravest apprehensions for thu future
peace of tho nation should bo eulor
At a time when labor is depressed, and
every material interest is palsied by op?
pressive taxation, the public offices have
bceu multiplied beyond all precedent to
servo as instruments iu tho perpetuation
of power. Partif-anship is tho only test
applied to tho distribution of this vast
patronage, llonesty, fiti-ess aud moral
worth aro openly discarded in favor of
truckling submission aud dishonorable
compliance; boneo enormous defalcations
and wide-spread corruption have fol?
lowed as tho natural consequences of
thin pernicious system. By tho official
report of tho Secretary of tho Treasury,
it appears that after the deduction of all
proper credits, many millions of dollars
remain from ex-collectors of tho internal
rovenuo, and that no proper diligence
has over been used to collect them. Ro
forms in tho rovenuo and fiscal systems,
which all experience demonstrates to be
necessary to a frugal administration ol
tho Government, as well as a measure ol
relief to an over-burdened people, have
boen persistently postponed or wilfully
neglected. Congress now adjourns with
out having even attempted to reduce
taxation, or to repeal the glaring imposi
tious by which industry is crushed ant]
impoverished. Tho treasury is overflow
iug, aud au excess of $80,000,000 of re
vouno is admit tod; and yet, instead o
some measure of present rcliof, a barrer
and delusive rcsolutiou is passed by tlx
Semite to consider tho tariff und excise
systems horeaftor, ns if tho history o
broken plodges and pretended remedie!
furnished auy better assurance for fu
turo legislation than experience has dom
in tho past.

Our agriculturists, while paying henv;
taxes on ull thoy consume, either to th
Government or to monopolists, find th

thut honest labor is denied its just rc
ward, and industry is prostrated by iii
vidions discrimination. Nearly 200,000,
000 acres of publie lauds, which shonl
have beou reserved for tho benefit of th
people, have been voted away to giau
corporations, neglecting our soldiers au
ouriching a handful of greedy specuh
tors and lobbyists who are thereby ci
ublod to exercise a most dangerous an
corrupting influence over Slato an

Under pretenso of passing laws to ci
force tho fourteenth amendment, and ft
tither purposes, Congress has content1
tho most tlespotic powers upon thc Ext

Everything that malicious iugenui
could suggest has been done to irritato |
the people of tho Middle and Southern
States. Gross and exaggerated chargos
of disorder and violence owe their origin
to the mischievous minds of potential
mahngors in the Senate and House of
Representatives, to which tho Executive
has, wo regret to say, lent his aid, and
thus helped to inflame tho popular feel?
ing. In all this course of hostile legisla?
tion nud harsh resentment, no word of
conciliation, of kiud onconragomont or
fraternal foeling hus ever been spoken
by tho President or Congress to tho poo
ple of tho Southern Stutcs. They have
bcou addressed only in tho language of
proscription. "Wo earnestly entreat our
follow-citizens, in all parts of the Uuiou,
to spare no efforts lo maintain peace and
order; lo carefully protect the rights of
every oitizou; to prcsorvo kindly rela?
tions among all meu, and lo discounte
uaucu and discourage any violation of
tho rights of any portiou of thu people
scoured under the Constitution or any of
its amendments; and iu conclusion, we
earnestly beg of you not to give aid to
tho present attempts of Radical parti?
sans to stir up strifo iu tho land; lo re?
new the issues of war, or lo obstruct the
return of peaeo and prosperity to tho
Southern Slates, becauso it is thus that

tho same purposes iu war aud iu peace
during tho seventy-ouo years preceding

ease the sum paid upon principal or in?

with tho intelligence of thu people foi
tho Radical loaders to pretend that this
vast sum has been honestly expended
Hundreds of millions of it have boin
wantonly squandered: Tho cxpeudi

$02,000,000, whilo for precisely the sam*
purposes-civil list, army, navy, peusioi
