The sjmptoms of Liver Complaint"are
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some*
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick
ess, bowels in general costive, and I
sometimes alternating with lax. The |
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in- '

The Hampton Legion He-Union?Con?
clusion or General Logan's Address.?
To illustrate, as well a-s sustain this posi?
tion, we may cite the increased influence
of public opinion over the Government,
since the introduction of railroads and
telegraph lines?those two great adjuncts
to the printing press in diffusing know?
ledge. They not only facilitate the trans?
mission of information, but they bring
the citizens oi all sections into direct
and immediate communication with each j
other, if not into personal conference.
While the Government, then, has become
more consolidated, publio opinion has
also become more consolidated. While
the simple Federal Republic has become
a strong nation, comparatively central?
ized, the "annihilators of time and
space" have also been introduced; and
publio opinion, susceptible now of rapid
concentration by the telegraph and the
railroad, is too strong to be ignored.
The arteries and veins of the social or?
ganism now permeate the entire system,
and distribute and diffuse throughout
all parts the annual products of indus?
try? the blood of the corporate existence?
while its magnetic nerves, flashing from
all points the. alarms of evil or the
tidings of good, bind the whole together
in sympathy?a conscious "thing of
life!" What is it? It is the expanding
form of freedom's empire?the nope of
man. It is the living, growing body po?
litic, in which throbs the great American
heart, with its unbounded aspirations
for progress. Its soul is the genius of
humanity; while the collective human
mind, finding its expression through
public opinion, presides over and pro?
tects it. Such is the last born of civuizor
(ton?a child of the new world, nurtured
and reared by the goddess of liberty.
Observe, also, the increased influence of
the "free press"?so aptly termed the
"fourth estate" in politics. In the early
history of journalism, the newspaper was
generally forced from pecuniary neces?
sity to become the organ of some party,
individual or particular interest; but to?
day the leading journals of the country,
those entitled to the proud distinction of
the independent press, are sustained by
the ample patronage of the reading and
business public, and are relieved from
the necessity or the temptation of court?
ing pecuniary support from any particu?
lar source. They are independent pecu?
niarily, as well as in principle, and can?
not afford to be subsidized. They are
not expounders only of public opinion,
but, to a certain extent, they seek to form
and lead it; and even when supporting
a political party, they can be so far un
partisan as to repudiate party measures
which they do not approve. They are
really seekers after truth, refusing to
prostitute their columns for advocating
specific objects. As there is necessarily
talent and ability connected with their
management, they are competent as well
as disinterested advisers upon all ques?
tions that arise. On the average, there?
fore, the independent press will be found
on the side of truth, justice and right.
1 On the whole, as the political mentor, will
I enlighten, elevate and purify the public
conscience. We had a practical demon?
stration of the influence which this free
j press now wields, as the "fourth estate"
I in the social economy, in what was ac?
complished by the "great dailies" during
last year, in investigating and reporting,
through their special correspondents,
the real condition of affairs in tue South.
After ascertaining the truth, they fear?
lessly sni actively proclaimed it?thus
battling earnestly for right and justice
r'nst prevailing prejudice, and against
policy of the party in power. The
respectable journals of the country*, in
consequence, were soon engaged (with a
few exceptions) in exposing tue fraud of
alleged Ku Klux outrages, and in de?
nouncing the corruption of carpet-bag
misrule. The result was as beneficial to
the cause of good government and free?
dom in the South, as the rebuke to the
party which had tolerated such abuses
was prompt and emphatic at the polls;
while the course pursued so earnestly
and impartially by the enterprising jour?
nals which originated the movement, will
be valuable as an example, and is most
auspicious of the future influence of the
press. As, then, the influence of the
Central Government increased, the
decentralizing influence of the press
also increased, as the supposed fatal
evil was developed, an ample cor?
rective, the "fourth estate," was evolved.
And while the vast patronage and power
now attaching to the National Govern?
ment would have been regarded former?
ly as inevitably subversive of our insti?
tutions, yet we have no Buch apprehen?
sions, because an active, fearless and
powerful independent press is now always
ready (and is able) to attack and expose
corruption, and to sound the alarm and
arouse the people at the first indication
It should not be overlooked, that the
trying ordeals to which constitutional
S)vernment has been subjected during
ie past ten years, have been surmounted
while the South was practically without
influenae in directing the policy of the
administration. The Southern people
had always been conservative?opposing
every encroachment of national authori?
ty, and thus exerted a restraining in?
fluence over the centralizing tendenoy of
the North. The habits, aims and aspira?
tions of the Northern people, on the
other hand, looked to the rapid acenmu-'
Attend thelTrue Event."

lation of wenlth and the increase of popu
ulation; and they naturally desired a
strong central government. We ran well
understand how the resultant of these
opposing tendencies might havo been a
happy equilibrium along a line of pro
gress between the two extremes,
'honges would have been introduced,
gradually following the example of time,
"which indeed innovateth greatly but
slowly," and we would thus have secured
a national government which, recogniz?
ing fully the local rights of the States
and the freedom of the individual, would
at the same time have been sufficiently
strong to protect the varied commercial
and other interests of a rapidly increas?
ing population. In the absence, how?
ever, for ten years of the restraining in?
fluence of the South, it is not surprising,
under the circumstances, that the equi?
librium was temporarily destroyed. But
the dangers were at last appreciated by
the North, and the reaction of public
opinion became so great as, even in Mas?
sachusetts, to hurl the Republican party
from power. The South is now again on
a footing of equality, and in any future
struggles against abuse of power, or
against a tendency to imperialism,
her conservative influence will be
available and may be relied on.
What the whole country now needs,
so far as her material prosperity
is concerned, is, that the South, on the
one hand, should acquire some of the
characteristic thrift and business energy
of the North; should build up her cities
by manufactures and commerce; should
populate, improve and cultivate her
waste districts; should open and operate
her mines, and should, in short, develop
as rapidly as possible all her material re?
sources; while the Northern people, re?
collecting that' 'eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty," should, on their part,
check any further tendency to central?
ization, whether in the executive, legis?
lative or judicial department. While we
should study more the science and art of
wealth, they should study more the
science and art of government
Corrupt administrations in some of the
Southern States, and the demoralizing
influence of adventurers and office
seekers over colored laborers, may con?
tinue to depress business and enterprise,
but there is now reason for believing
that these blighting influences will be
only temporary. The future of the negro
in the South, as a citizen and a voter, is
an interesting subject of vital impor?
tance, but it involves a problem which
time alone can solve. We can, however,
see the beginning of the end, for already
"the gray-eyed moon smiles on the
frowning night" Wherever the whites
have the majority in the South, the ne?
gro, no longer the active politician, has
proved himself a quiet, peaceable and
well-disposed citizen. As a laborer, we
need him, and in this capacity he will
be invaluable. Nor need he be, because
of an inferior race, an incubus upon the
South, as some would have us believe.
If the Southern people were left to them?
selves, without further interference in
this matter by Fcderalf legislation or
otherwise, there would be no trouble be?
tween the races; and the colored man, no
longer influenced and deluded by ad?
venturers, would become a contented
and faithful laborer. In the meantime,
the whites should appreciate the posi?
tion of the misguided race, and be scru?
pulously just and kind to it.
Upon the whole, then, as far as oppor?
tunity and circumstances are concerned,
the South is in a position to reap her
full share of the prosperity and progress
of the country in the future. Our peo- '
pie, however, must fully realize their
condition as well as their opportunities.
They must cultivate habits of steady
industry, and they must' rait their chil?
dren to* work.
The influence and ability of Southern
statesmen before the war are matters of
historv. They controlled the country
until i860. The South has still the same
talents, the same culture and the samo
genius for statesmanship, and although
it may be true, that individuals cannot
in the future wield tbo direct influence
they have exerted in the past, yet genius
will stil 1 bo potent in shaping that public
opinion of the masses, which is now the
"power in politics." The first talent of
the South, before the war, naturally
sought publio life as the field for dis?
tinction, and the genius of the South
was thus concentrated almost exclusively
in her statesmanship, (the demand in
the irrepressible conflict for what she
deemed self-preservation creating the
snpplv.) Sho excelled in statesmanship,
ana if the same talent and genius be de?
voted now to other occupations, she will
also excel in literature, science and the
arts of life. It is vitally important, in
this connection, that our people be edu?
cated. Knowledge is power as regards
communities as well as individual*.
While the culture and education of the
higher classes of Southern society have
been unequaled in any other section of
the country, our opportunities for pub?
lio instruction have been limited. It is
more important now than ever that this
should be corrected. Aside from other
considerations, we cannot expect to com?
pete with our friends at the North in the
race for wealth and progress, unless the
masses of our people are equally well
educated; and in considering the future
of our now impoverished South, there is
probably no clearer question of policy

Any appropriations made for this pur?
pose will ultimately prove the most pro?
fitable of all investments.
A new century of union, progress and
Srosperity is now being ushered in u.u
er the harmonizing auspices of the
centennial celebrations; and the people
of the two sections are vieing with each
other in their offerings of local preju?
dices as sacrifices upon the altars of fra?
ternity and friendship. This spirit of
reconciliation, aided by the sacred and
ennobling memories of the earlier days,
has awakened new hopes for a common
future, and promises to restore re-union
in feeling as well as in form. Mutual
concession and forbearance have already
accomplished much, by arousing a com?
mon sympathy in these associations of
the past; but permanent reconciliation
and true friendship must be based upon
mutual respect ana equality: and if we*
would reap the full fruits of these auspi?
cious celebrations, we should, in a broad
spirit of magnanimity, mutually recog?
nize and acknowledge what each section,
in its peculiar province, has accom
SUshed for the common good. The
forth has led Sn the physical world, in
the material development of the country;
the South has concentrated her best
energies in the moral world, in seeking
to realize her ideals of true manhood, of
broad and pure statesmanship and high
public character. The success of the
earlier efforts of the one soon placed the
country on the highest pinnacle of ma?
terial greatness?as first in the world in
intelligence, enterprise and energy;
and we were all proud of the result.
The success of the earlier efforts of the
other soon impressed itself upon the free
institutions of the country through bar
Jeffersons, her Madisons, her Marshalls,
her Laurenses, her Butledges and her
Pinckneys; and as the personified pro?
duct of her highest aspirations, the South
gave to the common country the exalted
character of Washington. But this addi?
tional bond of union and of friendship,
in the mutual recognition of contribu?
tions to the country's greatness, need not
be limited to these earlier days. We of
the South fully appreciate the unbounded
resources and material power that have
been developed, in these later years, by
Northern intelligence, energy and enter
Srise; and we recognize that these have
emonstrated to the world that republi?
canism, with its unfettered liberty of
action, promotes intelligence, stimulates
industry, produces unrivaled prospe?
rity, and at the same time insures une
?[ualed power in war. This was exhibited
n the conflict between the States. But,
fully appreciating what has been achieved
by Northern skill, energy and industry,
we claim that the South has displayed,
in the same Btryggle, a morale, a will and
a force of character of which any people
may justly be proud; and that sho has
accordingly demonstrated to the world
that republicanism can develop the high?
est moral qualities. And the adherence
of our people to their plighted faith,
given when finally overpowered, (al?
though not defeated,) is equally pre?
cious, as an exhibition of public honor
that has never been surpassed. The
same character, the same devotion to
duty and to principle, which sustained
them in prolonging the struggle against
unparalleled odds, removed all armed
disaffection, after their word had bees
given to resist no longer, and insured
the sacred observance of their troth.
At the great centennial, then, at Phila?
delphia, for which these lesser celebra?
tions are preparing us all, we expect to
see a people represented who, unpreju?
diced by local influences or sectional
foeling, will appreciate true greatness,
wherever or under whatever circum?
stances it may have been displayed.
And while wc of the South shall recog?
nize and be proud of the amazing in?
dustrial and intellectual achievements
of the North, which shall then be repre?
sented, we shall also be justly proud of
what the South can offer to represent her
achievement*) for the common country's
f;rentness. Her material offerings will
>e poor, but, as in the earlier days, the
South gave to the country her best con?
tributions in the wisdom, the virtue, and
the valor of her sons, so in these later cen?
tennial days she can refer to the recent
achievements of her sons as indicating
the valor and the heroism which may be
relied upon whenever needed in the
country's defence; she can refer to their
high sense of honor recently exhibited
as an earnest of fidelity to that Union
which they have now accepted as their
own. 8he can confidently refer to both
as indicating the high morel worth which
she contributes to the ovuntry's welfare
and renown. And it is the conscious?
ness of this which places her sons'around
these centennial altars, not conquered
and crushed, but proud and erect, re?
cognized equals and peers; and, an in
the earlier days, she gave to the nation
and to the world her Washington,
representing all the virtue and the
valor which she aspired to, so, hi this
later day, when material development,
physical grandeur, threatens to eclipse
and overshadow moral development,
moral grandeur, she can tender as her
beet gift to the country and to the world
the exalted and majestic charaeter af her
Lee, as personifying and embodying bor
highest aspirations for true giaatjiCM,
Although the South has not heretofore
devoted due attention to material deve
