Gov. John B. Gordon, '
pmiimRiffl the onDortun-1
ity of his inaugural ceremonies to read
the South a dissertation upon Slates'
Eights. Nothing alarms the South-
up of the Solid South. It is the only
relic of the "Lost Cause" left the
Breckinridge wing of auti-Lellum Dem-
ocracy. ne oniy nope mat uic ouun-
has of maintaining Democratic suprem
acy in the Nation, is the continuation
of Demociatic supremacy in all of the
Southern States. Aud this rebellion
on the part of Wet Virginia, against
the domination of the Southern briga
diers, has created intense alarm amoiig
the Southern chivalry.
Mr. Gordon makrs an earnest appeal
to that old doctrine of States' rights,
which furnished an excuse for the
Dtmocrat, to rebel agaiust the Nation
in 1861. This appeal touches a cord in
.he heart of the Southerner that can be
i cached bj no other aigumeut. Mr.
Goidou intimates that the rew"

If there be one principle of govern

are struck down the Republic (alls.
O, no; the straugulaliun. or; ie Slate's

What possible excuse could be given
for interference by the general govern
ment in 'the affairs of Georgia that
would not also justify interference with
an State in ihe Union? What evil
xists here that does not exist ele
wheie. and which is full of danger,
that to correct it the fundamental law
must he ignored and Statehood im
oeriled? This appeal is for the purpose nf i -kit
dling the old war engendeietl
I Tejudice against the g neial govern
ment and against the Reiuiblicans ot
he Ninth particularly.
No Republican, no loyal American
citizen evtr thought of interfering with
the rights of any Mate in the Uniou.
It is only the criminal who fears the
power of the government. It is onlj
the man who wishes to violate the
rights of s me other man, who feais

It is only the man who wishes to do

who favors the suppression ol the ballot
who is opposed to all legal methods to
I prevent its suppression. Mr. Gordon is
evidently very much afraid that the in
coming administration may take pome
ffictive measures to prevent the size
1 Dtmocratic majorities in the South
in Slates, fiom dep nding entirely up
on the pleasure of the judges of elec
tions. The appeal comts too late.
