There has been bulldozing else
where than in the South. We were
itiLdozed in Philadelphia Saturday
lefore the election, and a negro
was subjected to the same treat-
nent at the same time. A profes
sor of Girard College was drunk
and was cursing a negro for saying
he was a democrat. We were stand
ing by and feasting our eyes upon
a negro who could stand up in that
cily of radical hate and bo'.diy as
sort his opinions, but we didn't
dare to open our mouth. At length
the drunken professor turned to us
and asked us where we hailed from,
and light tremblingly did we tell
him. Then he took it for granted
we were a democrat (because we
looked honest, we presume,) and
assuming that we didn't endorse
Biownlow, he took that worthy
old blackguard and held us up to
gethcr and praised one and cursed
the other finally working out the
iroblem to his own satisfaction, de
ducing as a carrollarv that we were
a d n fool. We did not believe it,
but were willing to let him believe
t and say so just for the satisfac-
ion we experienced in hearing him
ursfc the negro. We call upon
Congress to take this fact into con
sideration when it conies to count
the vote of Philadelphia.
Tbe Democratic State Committee

PULASKI, TENN., THURSDAY,
A SECOND CIVIL W'AIl.
Blaine's Kigbt Hand Man
Would Prefer it to tbe Inau
gnratiou of Tilden.
In a speech at Peoria, 111., on the
8th inst., Col. Bob Ingersol said:
If there is a Democrat here, I
give him a warning that Samuel J.
Tilden can never be inaugurated.
I had rather see another war than
see him inaugurated through the
means of that hound in Oregon.
Rutherford TJ. Ha3'es will be inan
rated on the 5th of next March I
would be in favor of having it on
the 1th. There cannot be too good
a day on which to inaugurate a Re
publican President. The
Republican party will never turn
this government over to Democrats.
If Hayes don't go in, nobody will.
Giant will stay.
There never was such an election
and there never was such a time
finding out who was elected. I say
to the Democrats, I hope you will
not lean upon the vote Gf Louisiana.
The record will be damaging to hu
manity and to the fair name of the
American people. Think of it,
Democrats, of the kind of company
you have to keep. The best Dem
ocrats in the city of Washington
say that Mr, Hayes has been hon
See the difference between the
two parties. Not a single charge
of fraud, not a single row has been
charged to the Republicans. The
Democracy have not got the moral
courage to oppose us in the inaugu
ration of Hayes. They know that
we will protect the honor and in
tegrity of the nation. The Demo
cratic party is not fit to govern the
country. Let them sell out their
lire works; Tilden will never be
President. John Morrisscy is the
best Democrat I know. He is the
most influential man I know. He
is what he pretends to be. He is
the embodiment of Democratic prin
ciples. If we don't protect our cit
izens at home and abroad, our coun
try is a failure. If we can't devise
soruo plan to keep the Republican
party in power it will be a failure.
B3- the time we get all the mean
things the Democrats ever did on
the shoulders of their candidate, he
can't run very well. When you
pile the record of the last campaign
on top of that.no man can ever stand
it. There never will be another
There are some Republicans who
were talking about reform. The
Republican party never needed re
form. There was occasionally an
individual in the party who ought
to have been a Democrat. But
they were an exception.
If there be any Republicans who
voted for Tilden, we say to them
repent in sackcloth and ashes. Let
us keep every man who ever was a
Republican in the part'.
When the news goes through the
South it will strike into the cabin
doors like sunshine, it will strike
every black face like glory.
I am in favor of trying these
white liners; these bulldozers. If
anything like murder can be proved
against them, I am in favor of
shooting them on the spot. I want
it so that every child of the Repub
lic shall be educated by the Repub
lic. I want to see liberty, equality
and justice throughout the country.
That's my doctrine. That's the
reason I am glad of the success of
the Republican party. Thi3 success

were not received in vain; to the
orphans, your fathers were not
killed in vain.
More alarming, if possible, than
the use of the military in the com
pletion of the robbery ot the south
ern States is the position taken by
such men as Senator Edmunds, who
coolly confesses that his movement
in the senate in regard to an inves
tigation of the votes cast in the re
cent elections in certain of the
southern States is solely with a view
to "fix the representation in the
next house of representatives. It
had nothing to do with the Presi
dential election." In other words,
in defiance of the fourteenth amend
ment, under which he assumes to
act, Edmunds will deny to the States
named in his resolution the repre
sentation thej are entitled to, on
the plea of illegal voting or of in
timidation. Mr. Edmunds who has
assumed the lead of the Republi
cans of the Senate, would thus
"bulldoze" the States of South Car
olina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida,
Louisiana and Mississippi, remand
them in part to a territorial condition
in order to secure to his party in
the house a working majority. This
is the measure of Republican states
manship and the extent of Republi
can legislation as exemplified by
the foremost leader of the bulldoz
ing party. Knoxv'UU Tribune,
"I've heard, captain," said an En

The War Humbug:.
The radicals and their allies, the
Independents, have adopted the
strategy of the Curates, who saved
the historical infant by clashing
shields to drown the cries of the
child wanted by the devouring mon
ster. In their anxiety to persuade
the Democracy to peaceabty permit
the minority to steal the Presiden
cy, and to keep their thieving hands
in the public treasury four years
more, they insist that somebody
proposes war as a remedy. This is
a coutemptible device, and will de
ceive no one. It is the clashing of
shields to drown the cries of the
people against fraud, villainy, and
made in the interest of knaves and
tricksters, who 6eek to frighten the
people with the cry of war while
they are robbing them of their lib
erties. No one proposes armed re
sistance to any infamy which the
Radicals may enact. The National
DemocracjT has counseled peace,
and propose to prevent fraud only
by legal remedies. The Southern
Democracy is still more serene and
conservative in the expression of
its views. As evidence of the tone
and temper of the Democracy of
Tennessee, we refer the reader to
the extracts in another column,
from those two leading Democratic
papers, the Murfreesboro News and
the Pulaski Citizen. They give the
lie to the Radical twaddle about the
danger of war. In every section of
the Union the Democrats are united
in counseling the true and only
remedy for the crisis, and that is an
appeal to the laws and the patriot
ism of the people to prevent the
consummation of the attempted
outing-5. The Southern people do
not think of war, and never talk of
it as a remedy. AfemphU Appeal.
Clearly a Conspiracy.
The .vorst ( at tire of the case, as
it seems to us, is this: Ever since
the morning after the election, when
it appeared that the votes of South
Carolina, Florida and Louisiana
would elect Hayes, the managers of
the Republican party have insisted
that those States had gone Repub
lican. They began to say so before
auy returns of consequence had be
gun to come from those States; and
when the few returns received indi
cated large Democratic gains, they
have not varied from that tune.
It will be remembered that in re
gard to Louisiana they first claimed
a victorj' by the votes actually cast;
afterward, when that would not do,
that there were five "bulldozed"
parishes; but, later, it became appa
rent that throwing out the votes of
the five parishes would not answer,
and to give the electoral vote of the
State to Hayes it i3 evident that
there must be other parishes thrown
This would look suspicious, even
if the Returning Board enjoyed a
better reputation than it does. It
leads to the belief that the Republi
cans resolved on the morning after
the election to have the three doubt
ful Statea counted for Hayes, any
way, without regard to the votes
cast, and that the canvassing ma
chinery in all of them has been used
with that purpose in view. If it
had beeu otherwise, how could the
Republican managers have obtained
the information upon which they
declared that Louisiana had gone
for Hayes, when it was known that
Tilden had a large majority of the
votes actually cast, and the evidence
of intimidation had not come in?
It is not, then, merely the dis
honesty of two or three Returning
Boards that we have to lament a
dishonesty established by Republi
can evidence of the highest charac
ter before but a conspiracy which
the leaders of the party have en
tered into to defeat the will of the
people by any amount of fraud that
might be required. That, as it
seems to us, is the consideration
which should cause any honest man
to spurn with contempt the great
prize of the Presidency secured by
The twenty-second joint rule is a

San Francisco Examiner.
This is the fact, in a few words.
They made it, and are responsible
for it. Under it a Republican
House or Senate can prevent the
election of a Democratic President,
or a Democratic House or Senate
can prevent the election of a Re
publican President. In other words,
this rule, which the Republicans
adopited ten years ago, transfers the
Presidential election from the States
to Congress. It is unconstitutional
and revolutionary. It digs up the
very foundations of universally re
cognized State's rights and throws
them away, Avalanche.

TbeSoutb's Prestige in Europe.
"Gatto," of the Philadelphia
Times, has been interviewing Gen.
Pleasanton, recently from Europe,
and here is what he says of the
South'a prestige abroad:
"But thej' have lost their prestige
in Europe?" "I'm not so sure of
that. In England they had a warm
support during their revolt, and it
is not extinct. There was General
Taylor, of Louisiana. He was not
long ago introduced to the Prince
of Wales and the Prince's favor got
him into hi3 club. Such was his
popularity with Wales that he had
control of the revision of Americans
to be presented to the Queen, and
General Schenck had less social in
fluence. You see in England mere
money, without relation to a social
position, is nothing at all. To
have been presented to the Queen is
an honor for life. Of itself, it
makes the person presented the
standard of a local or relative circle.
The old military and social aristoc
racy ot the South, sharing English
notions on these questions, are fa
vorites where ire are not. The
English, jealous of their distinc
tions in military, family or other

We hope the House will leave the
impeachment project just where
they find it. What they are re
quired to do is to get Grant out of
office when his term ends, and to
put Mr. Tilden in when his term
begins. There are men enough to
support them in every step they can
take in this direction. Ihe first
effort to be made by the House is to
discover if a method can .not be
agreed on with the Senate by which
the electoral vote can be counted
exactly a it was ordered by the
That vote so counted elects Mr.
Tilden. If that fails the House
has its last supreme duty to per
form the election of Mr. Tilden
under and by virtue of the constitu
tion. The people will sec that he
is inaugurated, and if his iniugura
tion is resisted, Missouri can fur
nish one hundred thousand men for
such work, and will do it too the
largest portion of thera men who
fought in the Union army from the
beginning to the end of the late
war. Let the House stick closely
to its work.

Tbe Florida Fraud.
The following address wa3 issued
from Florida on the Gth:
To the Hon. Samuel J. Randall,
Washington, House of Reprcsenta
tives; The undersigned, who came
hither to be present at a fair count
of the votes cast by the people of
Florida, have had' the grief to be
witnesses of the counting in of
Haj-es Electors, who weie rejected
at the polls. We have witnessed
the progress and the consumma
tion of a deliberate preconcerted
scheme of fraud. This scheme was
first contrived for execution at the
ballot-boxes throughout the State.
Having there fallen short of sue
cess, it was then continued and
promoted by several county can
vassing boards, and was yesterday
supplemented and finished by the
Radical majority of the State Board
of Canvassers at Tallahassee. It
is manifest to every intelligent man
here, first, that upon the face of the
returns the Tilden Electors had a
majority of ail the votes cast; sec
ond the Tilden Electors had this ma
jority over and above the Radical
count, after it had been swollen bj
many hundred illegal votes through
local frauds and false returns; third,
that the majority declared for the
Ha3-es Electors is a fictitious, false
and fraudulent majority, which the
two Radical State Canvassers man
ufactured by throwing out whole
Democratic precincts and counties,
in open disregard of facts and with
fragrant violation of the law. They
did not even keep to the shewder
path blazed out for them by their
legal advisers from the North. All
along their debrious track the
marks of premeditation, the foot
prints of a shameless purpose are
unconcealed. The Democratic
Electors, receiving their certificates
of the true result from the Attorney
General, a member of the Board of
Canvassers, met to-day and cast
their votes for Tilden and Hen
dricks. The Radical electors, forti
fied with the false certificates of
Gov. Stearns, met to day and cast
their votes for Hayes and Wheeler.
It is for Congress to judge and de
termine whether this assault upon
the rights and liberties of freemen,
thus far persecuted under cover of
the arms and the authority of the
rederal Administration, shall be
crowned at the Capitol with success.
ramiuar with the history of carpet
bag corruption and mismanagement,
we yet needed a visit to Florida to
convince us of the distress that
their rule ha3 caused. It has sub
verted her social order; it has
plunged her people to the point of
impoverishment; it has abolished
the usual contests of political par
ties and arrested the progress of
her two races in self-government.
In truth, the late struggle at the
polls was not between Democrats
and Republicans. It was between
a hapless race misguided by a few
knavish adventurers, and even con
victed felons, who call themselves
Republicans, and a gentle, long
suffering people, whose patience
has permitted their oppressors to
live. The Republican party, as we
well know at the North, has no ex
istence in Florida, unless, indeed, it
shall confess a fellowship with those
abusing her, and living by seeking
profit through their crime. Geo.

In a long and able article the
Chicago Tribune discusses the elec
tion in Louisiana.and starts out with
this important confession, which
is a virtual concession of the elec
tion of Tilden: "Of the votes that
found their way into the ballot-box
in the recent election the majority
were unquestionably given to the
Tilden and Hendricks electors, tbe
average being about eighty-three
thousand for the Democratic and
seventy-six thousand for the Re
publican electors. This was the
condition of the vote when the pa
pers were opened and belore they
were purged by the returning board;
and this first point wa3 not denied
by any one." Thi3 point conceded
by the Republicans, there can be no
doubt as to the duty of Congress to
count the State as it voted, which
