hnrt in its inmost and nohlest parts, will
a'iske tiff Its toroor and show the world that
the eclipse nf reason and of honor in Spdin

after due deliberation and sonnd advice, to
1 seek In the State of an august ally the so.
I eurity requisite to enahle me to act, under
I these diffl 'Hit circumstances, in conformity

that devolves on me to transmit unimpaired
to mv son mv rights, sanctioned by law, ac
knowledge and sworn to by the nation, and
fortified by SS yesrs of sacrifice.viclssiludes
and tender affection. While setting foot on
a foreign soil, my heart and eyes tnrned
toward that which Is the land or my birth
and that of my children, I hasten to frame
mv explicit and formal protest before tmd
and before mar kind, declaring that the
ftirce to which I yinld in leaving my king
dom cannot Invalidate my rights, nor lessen
nor romuromlse them in anv way. Neither
can tl ose rights be aft", cted in any way by
Ibe aet of a Revolutionary Government ;
ar d still less by the regal .lions of its assem.
biles, which must, needs b formed under
the pressure of demagogic fury, and under
the obvious condition" of violence as regards
the conscience and will of the peop'e. Our
fathers maintained a protracted hut suc
cessful struggle for the religions faith and
the Independence of Spain.
Th present generation has unceasingly
toiled to connect all that was great, and glo
rious tn past ages with what, modern times
contain that is sonnd and fruitful. Revo

think that the crown of Spain, worn by a
Queen whosn fortune It has heen to connect
her name with the social and political re
generation of the State, be the symbol of
thrs sonnrl principles, yon will, as I hope,
remain faithful to your oaths and to your
creed you will allow to pass away as a
scourge the revolutionary vortex, in which
ingratitude, felonv.and ambition jotlo each

even in the hour of mlsftirtune I shall omit

this wild tonuiry by it. The sigog became
more frequent and fresh, and the most e

horses to a few scanty scrubs near by. In
aliout five minutes a very large force of In
dians were seen moving down the creek by a
luvine about a half a mile distant, and some
also appeared on ravine behind. The shout
was rained to dig in the sand and get under

Dear Sua e On yesterday wa were favor,
ed, at this place, with a very able speecb
from onr distinguished tellow-citisen Col.
A. A. Kyle, of Kogersville, E. Tenn., npon
tbe great political issues that so constantly
sgitate tbe public saind at tha present day.
Cut. Kyle is one of she champions of con.
servatism, aud is one of tbe Democratic
Electors tor lue ott upon the boymoor
aud Blair ticket. Wo will not attempt to
give you his speech in detail, but merely
bis leading points, constituting tne points
at Issue between the two great political par.
ties of the nation. Cul. Kyle took tbe ground
that the Radical party had proved false to
every position tbey bad taken, before d us
ing and since tbe war, that tbey bad da.
eeiwed the public mind as to the time aa.
jects fur which tbe war was prosecuted.
He was one of those unswerving oonstltn.
tional union men, trom the beginning to tha
end. of the war, and wben the question of
emancipation came up he chose to quietly
part with his negroes than to sever bis con
nection with, what was then, a great and
good government. But be took the ground
that no government had auy right to lake
trom blm, or auy other man, their negroea
without compensation, lie took the giound
that the Radical party had wandered Irom
ibe home uf truth and duty, and that they
have done all to secure party ends and pur.
Be said, -Tbo Congress of the United
States bad no right to go Into any of tbe
states and there interfere with tbe elective
franchise. That this Radical party bad no
right by any third of legislation to take the
ballot irom the respectable white man ant.
give it to the Ignorant negroes. In order to
secure party ends. But that this was tbe
only way that they could coutiuue iu pow
er, That tbey was alraid to let the white
man to tbe ballot box, lor fear they would
waut a division ol tbe otnees."
He said that tha leadiug men of (the Rad
ical party were in favor of giving the ballot
lo every man (wbito.) He then gave bla
courae tbrougn tbe war, and expressed
beautifully bis sympathy with tbe negro,
and said be had alwaya'been friendly tu
them, and believed tbey ought, of right, to
bave guaranteed to them protection under
the laws ol our couulry, but that be Was
opposed to giving him tbe ballot. Ue ar.
raigned the Radical parly for acting treach.
eroualy with th negro, and inquired "If
auy man bad ever heard ot tbe Radical pgr.
ty inviting the negro to share tbe fctttces.
with them r" .
Ue says, "none t f the states ever were ont
of thc onion," aud establishes that position
by two court decisions. Ouc of tbe Su.
preme Court of Tenuessee, 3d Caldwell's
Reports si.d auother, tbe holding of Chief
Justice Chase in the United Stales Court
in North Carolina. That ail ibe Radical
plan uf reconstruction was nucunalltutioual,
caning the people of tbe United States al

cure themselves tu office,

enormous public debt being paid in green

that was loaned tu tne government was.
nothing but grsaubacks, and was at the
