There has been bulldozing else
where than in the South. We were
bulldozed in Philadelphia Saturday
before the election, and a negro
was subjected to the same treat
ment at the same time. A profes
sorot'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
anegio who could stand up in that
cky of radical hate and bo'.dly as
sert 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 right 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
Brownlow, he took that worthy
old blackguard and held U3 up to
gether and praised one and cursed
the other finally working out the
problem to his own satisfaction, de
ducing as a carrollary that we were
a d n fool. We did not believe it,
but were willing to let him believe
it and say so just for the satisfac
tion we experienced in hearing him
curse the negro. We call upon
Congress to take this fact into con
sideration when it comes to count
the vote of Philadelphia.
The Democratic State Committee
met at Indianapolis, Ind., last Wed
nesday and the members gave the
sentiment prevailing in lueir re
spective districts. The democrats
throughout the State are convinced
thatTilden is elected and express a
determination to see him inaugura

determined to see the right triumph
at all hazards. A State Convention
was called for Jan. Sth, and the
Committee in making the call send
out to the countr an address for

the necessity of a decided expres

PULASKI, TENN., THURSDAY,
A SECOND CIVIL WAR.
Blaine's Iii-ht Hand Man
Would Prefer It to the Inau
guration of Tilden.
In a speech at Peoria, 111., on the
Sth 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 B. Hayes will be inau
rated on the oth of next March I
would be in favor of having it on
the 4th. There cannot be too good
2. 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.
Grant 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 of 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 Sir. Hayes has been hon
See the difference between the
two parties. Not a single charge
of fraud, not a f.ingle 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
tegritj' of the nation. The Demo
cratic party is not fit to govern the
country. Let them sell out their
fire works; Tildeu will never be
President. John Slorrissey 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
some plan to keep the Republican
party in power it will be si failure.
By 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 3'ou
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 occasional!- 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 party.
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 libertj', 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
says to every soldier, your wounds
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
eru States is the position taken by
such men as Senator Edmunds, who
coolly confesses that his movement
in the senate in regard to aa 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
nient, under which he assumes to
act, Edmunds will deny to the States
named in his resolution the repre
sentatiou they are entitled to, ou
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 bi
the foremost leader of the bulldoz
ing part noxville Tribune.

The War Humbug1.
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 crie3 of the
child wanted by the devouring mon
ster. In their anxiety to persuade
the Democracy to peaceably 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 contemptible 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 seek to frighten the
people with the.cvy of war while
they are robbing them of their lib
erties. No one proposes armed re
sistance to anjT infamy which the
Radicals may enact. The National
Democracy 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 2?ews and
the Pulaski Citizen. They give the
lie to the Radical twaddle about the
danger of war. In every sectioa 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
outi'tic,--: The Southern people do
not think of war, and never talk of
it as a remedy. Memphis Appeal.
Clearly a Conspiracy.
The .vor&L Iratuie of the case, as
t seems to us, is this: Ever since
the morning after the election, when
t 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
any 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 rememberedthnt in re-
p-ard to Louisiana thev first claimed
a victor' 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 Haj-es it is 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 States counted for Hayes, any
way, without regard to the votes
cast, and that the canvassing ma
chinerj' in all of them has been used
with that purpose in view. If it
had been 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

or a Democratic House or Senate

TheSoutu's Prestige inEurope.
"Gatto," of the Philadelphia
Times, has been interviewing Gen.
Pleasanton, recently from Europe,
and here is what he says of the
South's prestige abroad:
"But they 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 his club. Such was his
popularity with Wales that he had
control of the revision of Americans

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 ia this direction. The 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 as 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
tioa. The people will see that he
is inaugurated, and if his inaugura
tiou is resisted, Missouri can fur
nish one hundred thousand men for
such work, and will do it too the
largest portion of them men who
fought in the Union army from the
beginning to the end of the late
war. Let the House stick closely
to its wort.

The Florida Fraud.
The following address was issued
from Florida on the 6th:
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
Hayes Electors, who were rejected
at the polls. We have witnessed
the progress and the consumma
tion of a deliberate preconcerted
scheme of fraud. This 6cheme was
first contrived for execution at the
bailot-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 thu btate 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 uf all the votes cast; sec
ond the Tilden Electors had this ma
jority over and above the Radical
count, titer it had been swollen by
many hundred illegal votes through
local frauds and false returns; third,
that the majority declared for the
Ilaj-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. The'
did not even keep to the shewder
path blazed out for them by their
legal advisers from the North. All
along their dcbiious 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 right.3 and liberties of freemen,
thus far persecuted under cover of
the arms and the authority of the
Federal Administration, 6hall be
crowned at the Capitol with success.
Familiar 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 has caused. It has sub
verted her social order; it ha3
plunged her people to the point of
impoverishment; it has abolished
the usual contests of. political par
ties and arrested the progress of
her fcwo 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 adventureia, and even con
victed felons, who call themselves
Republicans, ana a gentle, -long
suffering people, whose patience
has permicted 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
proGt through their crime. Geo.

In a long and able article the
Chicago Trilune 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, the
average being about eighty-three
thousand for the Democratic and
seventy-six thousand for the Re
publican electors. Thi3 was the
condition of the vote when the pa
pers were opened and before they
were purged by the returning board;
and this first point was not denied
by any one." This point conceded
by the Republicans, there can be no
doubt as to the duty of Congress to
count the State as it voted, which
