Tho great error of the Grant and Colfax
Party is, in supposing man, the American
matt, to be so unmanned, as ever to be peace
able under such Governments, or that a
country can ever prosper under them. In
all the new acts of Reconstruction, in all
the State Constitutions, which the Rump
Congress through the negroes of the South
and their carpet-bag overseers in the Freed
men's Bureau, lAve been imposing upon
ten or twelve millions of People, there is
the element of disorder, rebellion, war, and
there can be nothing else. There can be
no peace where there is no safety. There
can be no peace where negroes are made
masters and sovereigns over white men.
There can be no peace where the superior
rce are sl'ves, and the inferior race their
masters. There can be no peace where
millions upon millions have to be expend
ed every year for a standing army which
under a proper government, and under our
old institutions, are now no more'' necessa

when the Jacobins began to get into power.
"Peace" is good Government, Self
Government, HOME Government ; and
there can be no Peace among Americans
where such Governments are banished,
and Captain-Governors and Lieutenant
Governors are substituted in their etead.
Peace is the contented subjection of
Americans to their own self-mad Laws,

"If Grant would have 'peace' why does
he not induce Congress to withdraw garri
sons and bureaus from the South. Would
be make a desert and call it peace ? There
is no vital industry where garrisons hold
sway, and less of any character among the
blacks taught to rely upon the intervention
of the bureau and of politicians for whisky
or bread. Or does Grant rely upon the bu

vote ?" Senaea Falls RevexLU.

party are laboring to bring about. If they

Our Northern brethren love to call ns
rebels. Itiaa pet word with them, and
they will use it wlSsnefer they have an op
portunity. Well, we bavo no objection to
it. On the contrary, we have learned to
love tha word, and to glory in ita applica
tion to our people. The Fathers of the Re
public were called Rebels ; and they never
blushed at its application. They learned
to glory in the title, and pave a dignity and
character to the little word which had been
intended as a term of insultand reproach
a dignity and character which was aug
mented by the Irish rebellion of '61. They
were Rebel 3 those men of '76. They
would not submit tc the yoke of tyranny ;
so with a mighty effort they shook it eff,
and established for themselves and their
posterity, a government of freedom and po
litical equality. ; They were Rebels, those
men of '98, who fought, like their Ameri
can prototypes, to cast off the bondage of a
hated Government. But alas ! they failed,
and were consigned back to that bondage
of which they so vainly essayed to rid them
selves. And shall we say it? These men
of '61 were they rebels? Oh, yes! they
were Rebels, h you please, against tyranny
and wrong. They strove to cast off the
burden of oppression, and to establish
again that constitutional and free Govern
ment which their forefathers had founded
in the past. But they, too, vainly strove
ao-ainst overwhelming numbers, and were
conquered conquered by men who once
in the name of Rebel, and thought Rebell
ion against tyranny no crime conquered
by men who declared that the States were
sovereign, and the people had a right to
throw off an oppressive Government and
put on another of their own choice, that
"all just Governments were derived from
the consent of the governed ;" by men, too,
who bad sought to make Ireland and Hun
gary free ; by men who bad been banished
from Germany and elsewhere because they
declared in favor of this great American
principle of self-government. And so they
defeated uaour hoped and our efforts, but
tl.ey could net take away our principles
from us they could not crush out our love
for a cause so just and so holy as we es
teemed ours to be they could ot, with
their bayonets and their swords, forca us
to confess 6orrow for our rebellion against
tyranny and oppression ; and thus, taking
nothing away from us but our liberties and
property they gave ua the appellation of
Yes, we were Rebels then. We are Reb
els now. We glory in the name ; and our
posterity will glory too, in the glory of their
fathers, who were not ashamed to proclaim
in the face of tho world, that they were
"Rebels" against Tyranny and Oppression.
The glory and honor did not perish with
our cauBe. they will not perish with our
generation ; but they will live in the future
as they live in the present, to give addition

The memorial presented to the National
Democratic Convention by the delegates
from Tennessee (which appeared in Jjie
Journal a day or two ago) ought to arouse
the indignation of every high miuded, freedom-loving
man in the North. Although
an able, truthful, and eloquent document,
it does not, and, from the nature of the case,
it could not, fill half that is to be told about
tha Brownlow despotism in Tennessee.
That despotism is so bad tint words can
not deecribe it. There is no license that il
does not take, and, therefore, there is no
limit to its ungovernable passions and stu
pendous corruptions. Fiom Brownlow up,
and from Brownlow down, the thing is reek
ing with blood and filth, produced by ne
gro leagues, hybrid militia, strolling office
hunters, and professional thieves.
If a radical wants to murder some one
who is not a radical, he goes and kills his
man, sure that if one of Brownlow's "ju
ries" does not acquit him, or if odo of
Brownlow's "judges" does not give him a
new trial, or if one of Brownlow's "jailors'
does not open the door for him to get away
Brownlow himself will pardon him and
give him a commission in the "loyal mili
tia". If a radical wants to steal a railroad
or rob a bank, he gets up a "little bill,"
which he takeB before the "legislature,"
and "buys through." If, in 6bort, any
atrocity is desirable to carry oat any radical
purpose, either personal or political, it is
done through the agency of negro leagues,
the militia, and the "old man." He is a
very wicked old man indeed ; but he ia not
a hundredth part as wicked as bis "gov
ernment," which is an abomination before
God and man.
The Republican party ought to be asham
ed of the name it claims to bear so loDg as
Tennessee remains in its present eondition.
It is a disgrace to despotism, much less
to Republicanism. It would be a blot on
the 'scutcheon of the most orthodox tyran
nies. Not only is it a vicious government,
but it is a government which penetrates
the most private walks of life, destroying
the security of households and sapping the
prosperity of business. It is rotten at bot
tom and rottener still on too. It 6melt foul
when it was established and it smells in
Let the memorial of the delegates be
read everywhere. Let all the Democratic
papers of the North copy it. Let us take
up the ease of Tennessee and ventilate it.
Lbars to Wait. Of all the lessons that
humanity has to learn in life's school, the
hardest is to learn to wait. Not to nait

trial, eee no such result as effort 6&ems to

to preserve one's stlf-respect, not to loose

A Hew Reconstruction Eill Demanded.
From the Lebanon Clarion.
We have to record this week a most fla
grant instance of the violation of the rights
of man, acd of that shocking demormlixation
and disloyalty of feeling prevalent in the
South which has given so much trouble to
the saints of the Butler-Stevens-'Brownlow
school. The breath of disloyalty has so
tainted the air that the beasts of tha field
hav caught tha infection, and are exerting
themselves to render the lives ofloyal citi
zens insecure. Only a few weeks ago wo
were called upon to chronicle a most vio
lent and unpoToked assault by a fox on
two of our colored citizens, whose only
crimes were the color of their skins and
their devotion to the Union and tha con
gressional plan of reconstruction
For some time past the raccoons along
Cissell'a river, in this county, have been
baimoniously and heartily co-operating
with the enterprising descendants of Ham,
resident in the vicinity, in the work of de
populating and laying waste all the hen'
roosts within reach. Having recently re
ceived essential assistance from the ravages
of chicken cholera, the allied powers have
swept everything before them, and dona
their work so effectually that the crowing
of a chanticleer, it is said, is as seldom
heard in that locality as was the whistle of
a locomotive fifty years ago. In fact,
Shanghai and Bantam, with all their kith
and kin, have utterly disappeared, and the
places that once knew them will know them
no more forever. Whether there was any
unfairness in the division of the spoils w
are not prepared to say, but it is certain
that the all iance ceased with the extermina
tion of the common enemy.
A few nights ago one of the strongest
and boklest of the coons entered the dwell
ing of a free and loyal American of African
descent too evidently with hostile inten
tions. Fresh from the lodga of the Kuklux
Klan. his appetite was whetted keen for
blood. He found no one within save an in
fant slumbering peacefully ia its cradl,
with a seraphic smilo of innocence playing
upon its dusky features, like the radience
of tho bow of promise upon the faca of the
dark and angry etorm cloud. Thia picture
of youth and joy and innocence was lest
upon the coon. There "waa no honor, no
relenting truth." Seizing the little inno
cence by one of its feet he lore it from ita
sweet repose and dragged it ruthlessly to
ward the wood. Luckily the cries of tho
infant brought assistance, and tha abductor
was forced to abandon his victim, after
dragging it eome twenty or thirty yard
from the house, and seek safely ia igno
minious flight. After this, who will doubt
the necessity of continuing the Freedmen'a
