WrITAT JUDGE DENT TELLS ON THE
RADICAL PARTY, IN STUMPIING
MISSISSIPPI TO BE GOVERNOR.
You are well aware that it is
the aim of General Ames and oth
ers to perpetuate their rule over
the State of 'Mississippi by a reg
ular system of proscription, if by
any means they could procure
your assistance in doing so. I
have told you that you are not
indebted to them for anything,
and, therefore, you should not ask
yourself the question to "whom
shall we attach ourselves at the
present time, and who will in re
ality prove themselves our friends
in the present crisis?" Do you
not know that the sole object of
General Ames, and the party to
which we are opposed, is simply
to subserve their own interests
and to continue their power in the
State ? The solution of this po
litical problem, therefore, depends
on the manner in which you shall
vote in the coming election. The
future of this State I may almost
say depends on your action, and
what you may consider of even
greater importance the perma
nency of your own race will de
pend greatly on the manner in
which you act, as you may be
driven to the frontier like the red
man, and disappear as he is doing.
If they could retain office and
continue to plunder the country,
they would soon prove false to
you, and you would soon find out
the truth or the axiom that "blood
is thicker than water." They
have no sympathy with you, while
those with whom you have been
raised do love you not for your
votes alone, but because they
have true sympathy with you.
And I tell you that General Grant
is in favor of the honest party.
I heard the President declare,
in my own presence, and in the
presence of a nunmber of distin
guished gentlemen belonging to
the Republican party, in Wash
ington, about three weeks ago,
that it was never in tcn(led to give
you the right to vote until it be
came a necessity in the plan of
reconstruction of the Southern
States, You are not, therefore,
indebted to them for the boon of
sutffrage, as you only received the
right to vote when it became a
political necessity. I-uch, there
fore, depends upon you at the.
present time, and, as I have said,
it is highly important to your
selves as a people to what party
you will attach yourselves in the
Yet, here in this State of Mis
sissippi, in the time of peace and
quietness, we have a little popin
jay, [laughter,] not in a kingdom,
but in a free Republic, in time of
peace, with impudence that is
really sublime, on his own mere
motion suspends the glorious writ
of right, and deprives citizens of
their personal liberty without
cause. His impudence is only
equalled by his ignrorance, as he
struts about like a little chicken
cock dressed in uniform. [Roars
of laughter.] This popinjay is
about thirty years of age, and
knows no more about law than
the cseatures by whom he is sur
rounded, and yet he suspends the
imost sacred writ of right while
the Gevernment looks on alnd ays'
The curious question, whether
sweet potatoes are- to be consid
cred as grain or friuit, has been fIor
a long time before the lntcrnal
R:evenue Bureau, and was only
deci(led the other da~y. It grew
out of the fact that considerabhl
quantities of whiskey are distilled
frionl sweet plotatoes il Virginia
and elsewhere. Undlcer t provis
ion of the law, stills distilliiing
from fruit are exemnl)t, or subjec(t
to a lower tax than manutfeCtories
lmaking whiskey from grain. The
Commissioner carefully consider
ed the subject, and decided at
last that, within the meaning of
Congrcss, sweet potatoes must he
regarded as a grain.
The Republicans had a major
ity of 28,89!)S votes in Pennsylva

the same election their majority
was 41,428. There is a heavy

The Bremen Line of Steamers.
The pioneer of the new line of
steamers to run between Bremen
and New Orleans, touching at
Havre, the steamship Frankfort,
lying at the head of Jackson
street, was thronged all day yes-.
terday, far up as her moorings
are, at the head of Jackson street,
in the Fourth District. The peo
ple visiting the vessel were chiefly
Germans, and they might well be
proud of this commercial enter
prise, uniting, as it does, their
Fatherland with the land of their
adoption on this Southern soil,
without any intermeddling to
prejudice new comers against the
soil, the climate or the inhabi
tants of the South. The Frank
fort brought some three hundred
and fifty passengers, the greater
number of whom started for New
Braunfels, in Texas, to settle
there, and some fifty remain here,
the rest going up the Mississippi,
destined for the West.
The Frankfort is the finest mer
chant steamer that has ever been
seen at the wharves of New Or
leans. She is an iron ship, of
twenty-six hundred tons burthen,
and can carry four thousand bales
of cotton. She is the pioneer of
the Bremen ~2rth German Lloyd
Line, in which five steamers are
to run, and all as capacious, as
swift and as well equipped as the
Frankfort. Her cabin aoeommo
datiors are limited to berths for
forty or fifty passengers. The
owners- of the line have seized
the right idea, which is to have
vessels of great capacity for
freight and for steerage passen
gers. She can, without discom
fort or endangering health, bring
nine hundred steerage passengers.
There is nothing wanting in her
appointments to secure her most
precious freight, that of human
life. She has eight large life
boats; she has a surgeon, and the
ventilation of the deck for steer
age passengers is not to be sur
passed. A man six feet high can
not, standing on the floor of the
steerage deck, touch the deck
above him, and beside the "wind
sails," through which the breeze
is caught above and taken below,
the side of the vessel is most
abundantly perforated with win
It is impossible to over-estimate
the benefits of such enterprises
as these to the people of the
South. It has been the interest
of ship-owners trading with North
ern ports, fromn the migratory
countries of Europe, to misrepre
sent everything in the South, and
exaggerate the advantages of the
West. Now the South will conime
in direct communication . with
these people in Europe; we will
understand each other, and the
owners of this and other lines of
direct communication will be

TlE COTTON QUESTION AnBROAD.
-The London Times of the 27th
ult., in an article on the cotton
question, says: "if cotton is dear
with its increased production be
cause of now spinning countries
bidding against us, then the Liv
erpool quotations are unintelligi
ble. If spinners only carry off
the ratw ma:terial but curtail their
demand for our manufactures,
the state oftrade is unintelligible.
Also, on these sulppositiol)5, it is
useless to try for-more and cheap
or cotton-the evil, arising only
fromn thl loss ot the monopoly.
iThe cotton demand is limited and
competitors diminish our share of
the manuftacture. We cannot
discern tlhat cotton at sixl)encle
-_..)er pound would bring trade back
to England. We lost it by the
loss of the raw material. lBut
since thent so manuy events occur
ed(1 affecting this .great industry
that it is necessary to distribute
or apportion these several results
in the state of things before us."

Radical Rule in Tennessee,
The following article from the
Memphis Appeal possesses a spe
cial interest for Louisiana, where
Radical rule still prevails:
It is startling to look back on
Radical rule for four years in Ten
Inessee, and see what a gulf of
destruction we have escaped by
obtaining at last a Legislature of
good; prudent and true men. The
public debt has been run to forty
millions, and if the Radical power
had continued four years more,
the debt would have reached
eighty. Capital would have been
driven out of the State, and would.
not be abundant enough to pay. a
laboring man a sheep's head and
pluck a day for his labor. All
improvements would stop, and an
exodus of laborers and mechanics
would have been the consequence.
Laborers cannot live where capi
tal cannot live. Where men with
money can make nothing with
their money they will seek some
other part of the world in which
they can. And there the capi
talists will go to work with their
money to build it up, and the me
chanics and laborers will follow
where they can get employment.
Thus our Radical Goverment of
high taxes, by driving capital
away, has been destroying the
country, while individual effort
was being made to build it up.
Let the two (Government and pri
vate enterprise) now combine, low
taxes and resolute effort, and we
shall have the greatest State on
this continent. Its cities-and cit
izens will be rich as well as its
soil. Laborers and mechanics,
farmers and merchants, will be
abundant, because abundantly
paid. And then our men will
have fine houses and the ladies
fine carriages, mechanics and la
borers will have plenty of clothes,
food and wages, and every poor
man's baby its own stick of candy.
Butler sternly refuses to com
promise with Wilson concerning
the Massachusetts Scnatorship.
We see by the telegraphic dis
patches that Capt. Charles V.
Read was on board of the Cuban
privateer Hornet, as navigating
officer. It will be remembered
that Capt. Read distinguished
himself in the Confederate navy
during the war, as commander of
the privateer Taconiy, off the coast
of New England. He was a lieu
tenant on the Florida when that
steamer escaped from the port of
Mobile. He wa$ in command of
the WVebb when she steamed out
of Red river and ran by New Or
leans, in the early part of 1865.
Capt. Read is a Mississippian,
and graduated at Annapolis Na
val Academy in 1860.

Edwin M Stanton.
(From the New York Demosrat.)
God is just in his punishment.
It is only a few months ago that
Edwin M. Stanton was one of the
most.noticeable men in all this
land. He was Secretary of War,
and had been for some years.
We hear of him in Vermont,
broken-down, helpless, miserable;
respected by none, thought of by
few, and cared for by only his
When he was in the War-ofice
he won a well-deserved reputa
tion as a cowardly knave, as a
ghoul, whose ambition made sub
servient every right and privilege,
and in many instances the lives
of his fellow-men.
Edwin M. Stanton was one of
the murderers of Mary E. Surratt.
Edwin M. Stanton was the mur
derer of thousands of Federal
soldiers who wereqkept in South
ern prisons, because he refused
to let them be exchmanged, al
though the Confederate autiori
ties were constantly making ef
forts to get them brought Netl-.
Ulysses S. Grant was an so
complice in this murder.
Since Stanton became an apos
tate his whole public career "has
been one of blood, of outrage,
and of murder, and while the
demoralization of the times had
only laudation and laurels for the
ghoul, a just Providence is bilng
ing revenge for the sufferers, and
a terrible retribution for the infa
mous outlaw who so long rioted
and feasted upon the misfries, of
his unfort~inate victims.
A coward in power is most
brutal and hellish of all, but the
power of the coward is now gumse.
. As he writhes in., the agoies
of the sufferings he is now under
going, as he toters around in his
helpless and worthless condition,
it will be a good time for him to
recur to the misery and desolation
he has wrought. to the scenes of
blood and murder he has instiga
ted, and then read the terrible
retribution that comes for such
Whon the history of this coun
try is written, Edwin M. Stanton
will occupy its blackest page, and
upon it will be heaped the bitter
est curses of all who live after
The hottest and most damning
fires of hell will not suffice to
burn out the stains of blood that
mark him for time and his record
for eternity, and when he comes
upon that last day for the final
judgment murderer will be mild,
for the sentence can only then be
given for such i life as his.
