For a Constitutional tonflment
THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES
Van Vote Directly for
President & Vice President.
The People Awakiuy.
The people have waited long, and
with a patience that has command
ed the respect of the whole civil
ized world. They waited to be
convinced of the fraud in Louisi
ana, waited patiently while the
voV.s were being thrown out that
hnd been honestly cast for lilden.
When the Returning Board for the
second time buried itself in infamy,
and declared the vote of the State
for a man whom the vote of the peo
plo had rejected, slill the people
waited. They were waiting to
know whether Congress would sus
tain this wicked act. Before long
it became apparent that the Presi
dent and the Senate would sustain
it, would carry it. out to completion
by every devicij in their power.
When the utterances or the Presi
dent, and of Prominent Iiepubli
cans, in Congress and out, and the
tone of the Republican press, made
this fact clear, the people began to
wake up. They woke up to the t.it
uation in Indiana, where a conven
tion of the whole State has been
called. They are waking up all
over the Union, and soon every
city, every town, every village and
every hamlet will be ablaze with in
dignation at the attempt of a party
to steal the Presidency. The hon
est men who voted for Hayes will
join hands in this movement with
the men who voted for Tilden. It
is no longer a question of politics,
but of principle. Let the Repub
lican managers who would steal
our votes beware! Already the
hand-wilting is gaming on the
wall, and their destruction is sure
The National Democratic Com
mittee issued an address last
Wednesday simply announcing the
result of the vote of the" electoral
college and congratulating the peo
ple on their victory for reform.
Zack Chandler got it before it was
printed and sent out with it the
next morning the most diabolical
manifesto that the devil could in
spire him to indite. He says: "The
address is an imprudent and auda
cious attempt to prejudice and per
vert public sentiment. Hayes and
Wheeler are elected, and the will of
the American people will be carried
out and maintained." Was there
ever such villainous impudence?
The democrats simply announced
the result of the vote, and he calls
it audacious, while he, the saiut,
says that Hayes and Wheeler are
elected, while a quarter million pop
ular majority and a decided elec
toral majority slap him in the lace
and tell him that he basely lies.
His premise is a malicious slander,
his argument is a miserable lie and
his corrollaiy is a cowardly thrrat.
A member of Grant's cabinet says
boldly and defiantly and threaten
ingly that Hayes and Wheeler will
be inaugurated. Now, verily doth
conspir.at.ors meet in open council
while treason stalketh at noonday
cl'Hhed in the stolen robe ot au
thority The Morton bill to regulate the
counting of the electoral vote, which
passed theSenate last summer, but
was recalled from the House of rep
resentatives, will probably pass
both houses of Congress this ses
sion. This bill provides that where
there is only one'return the concur
rence of both houses shall beesseu
tial to throw out the vote ot a
State, but where there is more than
one return, it shall require tha con
currence of both houses to count it.
These provisions will cither have
the effect to count Tilden in on the
14th ol Feb'y, or throw the election
into the House. In either event,
Tilden will be elected.
Supervisor Clover, of East Baton
Rouge, La., whose affidavit which
accompanied the returns represent
ed that riot, tumult, violence, fear,
dread, and terrorism prevailed
throughout the parish on the day
of election, has acknowledged on
cross-examination before- the con
gressional committee that he did
not witness any violence, but was
informed of it. He testified further
that his affidavit and accompanying
returns were prepared in the cus
tomhouse in New Orleans.
Grant says he "a ill sco that
Hayes is inaugurated if it takes the
army and navy to do it." This is
an open declaration of war. And
besides, what right will he have to
"sec" that anybody "is inaugura
ted?" lie will not then be Presi
dent. His term will have expired
at noon on the day before, and he
will then be nothing more than a
Sayings of Presideut Grant, com
plete: "I propose to move iinmedi

have peace." "These annual au
tumnal outbreaks." "Let no guilty

"No man worthy of the offlce can
otTwrd to be counted in." "D n

We call upon the Democratic
State Committee to issue its call
for a convention to tie held at Nash
ville on January Sth to protest
against the past, present and pros
pective villainy of the administra
tion, to rebuke the conspirators at
Washington, and to demand that
the expressed will of the people be
carried into effect by the peaceable
inauguration ot Tilden and Hend
ricks. Indiana makes the call and
the States should all respond. This
is a constitutional resort and may so
stun the conspirators as to render
unnecessary an appeal to arms.
The Stars and Stripes.
Such is the name of a new secret
political order which is being rap
idly organized by the radicals
throughout the country, for the
purpose of inaugurating Hayes at
all hazards. Gov. Hantraft, of
Pennsylvania, President Grant, Gen.
Sherman, and Major W. H. Decker
seem to be the prime leaders in this
treasonable and rebellious move
meet. They should be arrested
upon the charge of treason.
Hon. David Hubbard, an old citi
zen of Lawrence county', Ala., and
a prominent politician of other
days, died at Holly Springs, Miss.,
last month. Maj. Hubbard was 85
years old. tie was a member ot
Congress long before the war, and
was first beaten for that offlce by
Hon. Geo. S. Houston, now Gov
ernor of Alabama.
Senator Morton is reported as
saying in the presence of three
gentlemen at the Ebbitt House, one
of whom repeats the remark to Gen.
Banning, that the Northern Demo
crats would not fiirht and had no
grit in them, and all the Republi
can party had to do was to move
thi3 thing through.
The indications are that the rad
icals have about abandoned the un
tenable position and impudent as
sumption that t erry is to count in
the President. Morton's bill will
pass both houses, and its provisions
will solve the problem peaceably,
and, we believe, elect Tildei.

Aside from it being indelicate,
not to say outrageous and indecent,

Now and forever, so far as we are
concerned, we shall contend that
the South is as loyal as any other

be cowhided and spit upon and
browbeat and kicked in the hour
succeeding her defeat was what she
expected, and she was not disap
pointed; but thene indignities have
multiplied beyond measure and en
dured beyond power to endure, and
injury and insult and slander and
dclamation have puked their venom
upon us until every sense of justice
must be satiated. Hencetorth, let
the South speak out and assert her
rights, in the Union forever, and
may the tongue that says she is not
to be trusted wither in the scorch
of its slanderous utterance, and
may the arm that is uplifted to

A Oreat Speech.
We ask the desponding and im
patient Democrats of the South to
read the following extract from the
great speech recently delivered by
Horatio Seymour of New York:
I he Democratic party is too
strong to be violent; it will not for
feit the confidence of the people by
any display ot passion; it can asset
itself through the regular channel
of political action. Frauds may-
delay the course of justice, may ex
cite passion hurtful to the progress
of our country, but legal and just
punishment will surely follow. That
party which controls towns, coun
ties and states will control th
country. lhe President against

people, is an object of sympathy
not of fear. This is not a subject
which belongs alone to those who

and every home. They can make a
grand exhibition of the genious of
our government, and of the power o
its citizens by a calm rebuke to

of past misconduct from the knowl

New Orleans Special to the New York World
Further analysis of the Return
ing Board figures developes a tie
gree of rascality which could
scarcely have been suspected. It is
found on examination that every
poll thrown out had defeated some
Republican candidate. Here in ev
ery case ot throwing out a poll tne
effect was to elect some defeated
Republican. Thus, a small poll in
langipahoa, whicn was not con
tested, was excluded because (even
alter robbing Robertson, the Dem
ocratie candidate, of over i,000
votes), it was necessary to throw
out that poll in order to elect his
antagonist. It is discovered like
wise that the returns of the Board
diner enormously in the various
compilations; for instance, in order
to count in the Hayes electors they
threw out polls giving 12,000 Demo
cratic majority, but in order to get
the State benate by 2 majority they
threw out 18,000 Democratic votes
thus counting out for Senators
about 6,000 votes which they had
allowed tor electors. In order to
beat Robertson for Congress they
threw out Democratic votes about
3,000 in excess of the number
thrown out for Electors, and to re
store the aggregate in the Senate
they counted back in Leonard's dis
trlct, which is Republican by 6ever
al thousand on their showing, the
number of Democratic votes which
they had thrown out for electors
equal to the number they had stolen
from Robertson, borne polls have
been counted for Representatives
which were excluded for Senators
Others were thrown out for Congress
which were included on the Electo
ral return. The whole canvass is a
