For the Vinton Record. Grand Rally of the Democracy---
The Campaign Opened in Vinton
The Campaign Opened in Vinton County---The Meeting at Allensville
a Complete Success -Speeches
by Col. Moore and E. F. Bingham.
The Democratic meeting at Al-
lensvillc, on Saturday last, was, in
every respect, a success. Some
fear had been entertained lest the
meeting had not been well enough
advertised to secure a large as
femblage of the pecple. Never
was fear less grounded. The call
for those who hold the Union of
the States dear to their hearts, to
meet together and consult, and to
listen to words of patriotism and
wisdom, was all .sufficient. Early
in the forenoon the crowd began to
assemble from all parts' of the
country." It was evident that this
was an occasion of no slight : inter
est. The people testified by their
mannef and their talk, that they
deeply felt the issues involved in
the questions of the day, and that
upon their exertions depended the
permanency and security of the
Union they loved so well. Old
gray-haired men, who had literally
grown up with the country, and
who knew it in its palihy days,
when statesmanship and patriot
ism were in the ascendent, were
there, to aid in rebukinjj the big
otry and fanaticism ''which had
wrought so . great a change, and
, which threatened the overthrow of
our liberties, and our form of gov
ernment. Young men, in whose
minds had been instilled tho love
of liberty which animated their
fathers, were there, eager to pledge
their devotion and their efforts to
the cause of freedom; and free gov
ernment. Devotion to country,
and to the party identified with
every step of its progress, and
whose history, is its history, was
the link which bound every one to
gether as against the common loe.
Confident that they wero right,
they breathed the very spirit of
victory. With an interest that
never llaggod, they listened to the
speakers who addressed them in
terrupting only to applaud some
favored sentiment.
Tho first speaker was Col. Moore,
the'gallant standard-bearer of the
Democracy of this District, and
their representative in the next
Congress. We can give but a
brief and imperfect synopsis of his
masterly handling of the issues
now before the people.
lie commenced by referring to
the fact that during the late civil
war, when every safeguard of the
citizen was tnmpled down, the
Democracy was forced to act, or
did act, on the defensive. Now
this changed. The Democra
cy, asof old, lias taken the aggres
ive, and, as of old, this the
sure token of victory. With ilh
broken ranks it had stood firm
amid the 6torm and fury of fanati
cism, which had solong'assailed it.
The war is, over. I'eace has again
resumed her sway. Cut the dan
ger is not passed ; it has assumed
a new and more dangerous form.
Tho men whose wicked council
brought upon us the terrible ca
lamity of civil waf, are now en
deavoring to perpetuate their pow
er, regardless of 4he interests of the
country. Jt is the. same enemy
which the Democracy have o of
ten vanquished. JJut it no longer
presents an unbroken front, with
its mottoes inscribed upon its ban
ners. It is t the fragments of that
party broken up by its own suc
cessthat the Democracy have to
fight. The President of the United
States, whom the so-called Union
party placed in power, 9 now pro
claimed a traitor by that ame pat
ty. The President, it seems, is not
the Government now, as he was
two or three years back. The
meaning of words seem to have
changed since then. By just so
much as he is a "traitor to them and
their policy, he is a patriot to his
country. Upon somo of the vital
questions of the day lie stands up
on Democratic ground. While
there, the Democracy, as in dutv
bound, will give him their hearty
co-operauon ana support ; out it is
that fragment of the party, repre
sented by the present Rump Con
gress, which is most dangerous to
the liberties of the people. As
suming to be the. Congress of the
United States, and to legislate for
the entire country, it tramples the
Constitution undei foot, and dis
plays its hatred of the Union, it
. .
proposes to love, by excluding ten
of the states from their proper rep
resentation. Early in the war Con
gress declared the purpose for
which it was waged. It was not
to interfere with the rights, or-to
impair the dignity of the States.
It was simply to maintain the, Un-
ion. I nder that banner had the
Roldier enlisted; under it ho had
been victorious; and now, all oppo
sition overcome, he asks no guar
antee for the future. Ihs own
right arm is his sufficient guaran
tee. But Congress, in the face of
its declared purpose of the war, is
attempting to do by legislation
what the rebellion failed to -do by
the sword. For eight long months'
eleven of the Southern States have
been asking admission to the halls
of Congress. Radical and sweep
ing measures, nearly aflecting their
dearest interests, have been pass
ed. Though States in the Union,
they are allowed no voice. With
this fact before us, it caunot be
denied that, though the war is over,
tho Union is not restored.
The speaker proceeded to review
the measures which made up the
legislation of the so-called' Con
gress. He showed up, in its prop
er light, the covert attempt to force
negro suffrage upon the -South by
constitutional amendment. It
was but a preliminary to universal
suffrage. If the South could be
induced, by tho fear of a loss of
representation, tJ enfranchise the
negro, then could these plausible
gentlemen show a little more of
their hand, and argue that unless
tho Northern States gave the bal
lot to the negco, they could not
compete with the South. That
these gentlemen are in favor of
negro suffrage is plain. .The bold
est of them avow it. Trie fear of
their constituents makes the mo'st
of them discreetly silent upon the
question at home. Mr. Bundy
whom tho speaker mentioned as
his "predecessor in office1' is- not
in favor of negro suffrago when
among his constituents. lie
knows them too well. But ho
showed his hand when he voted to
force it upon the people of the
District of Columbia, and upon the
Territories. The people of the
District of Columbia had spoken
against it by an overwhelming
vote. And yet this representative
of the people, having no fear of
their votes before his . eyes, voted
to impose it upon them against
their expressed wishes. So with
the Territories. Now, why does he
not advocate it for this District!
Simply because he dares not. He
thinks the people of this District
need to b educated up to that
point. '
Then followed a scathing review
of the underhanded attempt to
override State laws, and to usurp
State power, by making the negro
a citizen of the.United States, and
thereby a citizen of the State in
which he may reside, and then, by
a partizan "construction" of the
law, declare him entitled to suff
rage, and every other right of the
white citizen. The State has the
right to regulate-suffrage. It is in
this underhanded way that Con
gress would steal from her her
rights.
The speaker then dwelt with
great force upon the unwise and
suicidal policy of Congress, which
tends to widen the breach between
the two sections, instead of uniting
them, and healing the wounds made
by our terrible civil war. He
6poke of the great love these Radi
cals have for tho soldiers as exhib
ited by their voting him tho paltry
sum of one hundred dollars, and
themselves the neat fortune of five
thousand a-piece, and then, in the;
hurry of the moment, forgetting to
appropriate a cent for the soldiers
littance, while they made their own
ittle sum secure. In" conclusion,
he called upon men of all parties,
to calmly consider the issues in
volved in the present contest,
to examine closely the acts of the
men in power and to unite at the
polls in defence of the Constitution
and the liberties of the people.
At the close of Col. Moore's
speech, the President of the meet
ing presented to the audience Mr.
Bingham, of Columbus, formally
of this place who, he said, scarce
ly needed the ceremony of an in
troduction. Mr. Bingham, after a
few words of greeting to the famil
iar faces around him, addressed
himself to the issues of the day,
and, in a brief speech, character
ized by clearness and force, depic

one who loved the Union of these

His masterly exposition of
the questions of the .day, and his

Negro Suffrage.
EDITOR RECORD:
Under the head of "Opposition
Argument" "prepared by one 0
their number' in your last issue
there is. an . article "head-lined"
"BrmnxuT fear negro equality-
Negro Suffrage." We wade
through that column and a half,
carefully searching for the "argu
ment;" but alas I we found it to be
another "Rump" hoax,. The "ar
gument" was not there. It was tho
play of Hamlet, with Hamlet left
out. . We found in place of "argu
ment," several propositions laid
down, as "Butternut propositions"
and admitted to be true a great
many assumption; some Scripture
and "our theory" submitted; put
the argument, the reason, to sup
port "our theory," or disprove tho
charge, against the Radical-Rump-
Republicans, of their favoring ne
gro sullrage, wa.s non est. It may
be that the writer reseived that for
another column -and a half next
week. We shall see. But let us
look, for a moment, at the point
the writer tries to make. lie lays
down, .what he calls a "Butternut
proposition," in these words, "God
made the negro for a subordinate
placo in society and government,
and limited his capacity to tho
sphere He intended him to fill." This
he admits to be true, and correct.
Now if the writer had known as
much as a "Clam," he would have
closed right there, and saved an oth
erwise damaged reputation for as
tuteness. By that admission, he
had proclaimed himself a subscri
ber to one of the cardinal doctrine
of the "Butternuts," and worthy to
bo taken, on probation, into the
Butternut fold. But unfortunately,
the writer did not know as mnch as
a "Clam," and did not close at the
right time, but proceeded, in his pe
culiar wandering style, to carry on
a dialogue with an imaginary "But
ternut" and this "creature of bjs
fancy" charges him, and his party,
with being in favor of negro equal
ity; establishing that .'equality by
legislation, extending the- right of
suffrage to "cuffy." Thereupon the
writer, makes a desperate, but fu
tile eihjrt, at an argument. He
mixes up, the Creator and tho ne
gro politics and religion until
he does not seem to know just whajt
he is trying to do. With a clinch
ing "Well sir, take your first prop
osition:" "God made the negro your
inferior," "can the .Union party by
legislation, destroy an essential def
erence behceen two races?" Well
that is a stvnner Can't you see
that "imaginary Butternut" trem
ble in his boots provided he is so
fortunate as to have any boots in
which to tremble. But if we were
to judge the distinctive powers of
the so-called Union party, by their
(almost) successful efforts to des
troy the Union of these States; and
to destroy the Constitution and to
destroy everything else that is
worth preserving in our govern
ment we might be led to fear,
that they could destroy an "essen
tial difference" in almost anything.
They "are mighty" to destroy.
But the writer goes on to eluciiate
and says--"To make the propo
sition plainer: if the Creator has
actually made a distinction, (as we
think he has) between the white
and black races, and given the pref
erence to the white, legislation can
not remove the distinction." Now
we think we understand the writer,
but we are quite as well satisfied
that he dies not understand the sub
ject, upon which he has attempted j
10 enngnien ine voters 01 Vinton 1

It is evident, that the distinction,
or difference which the writer has
in his mind, as established by the(
creator, are tnose ol a purely phys
ical character the form of ' the
body color of skin &e. Is the
writer willing to say to the voter

it;
But does that prevent you, and
ouiers otyour-party, from desir
ing, and attempting by legislation
the extentioa of the right of suff
rage to the "negro? You might by
legislation extend the right of suff-
rage to the horse, but that would
not "destroy the essential difference
established-by , the.' Creator." Jt
would not cause the horse to walk
erect; it would not change the col
or of his coat, nor increase his men
tal capacity. Ihe writer has a the
ory of his own, which he calls "our
theory" and he gives the public the
benefit of it. .Ho says: "The Crea
tor made a distinction; He marked
it by color, and by intellectual su
periority, if you please; He, also,
"made man upright, but ho has
sought out many indentions."
And right here, we would say to
the writer, that it is one of these
many inventions, "sought out" by
ltaaicai-iiump-.uepuuiicans, to ex
tend the right of suffrage to the
negro, to which we, as Democrats,
object, and against which we enter
our protest.
The writer, by wayf parenthe
sis, here leaves "our theory" and
goes into the mulatto business
and in his usual style of argument.
makes a low 'ihng' at his superiors,
the Democracy of the South 111
regard to the origin of the mulat
to. ,
The onlv notice we propose to
take, of this part of the writer's
"argument " is to suggest, that if
we wefe.called upon to give a defi
nition of the word mulatto, which
would, at once, be descriptive of
the animal, and discloso its origin,
wo should say that mulatto mean's
cross between a Yankee school
master and an Africanized Ameri
can. But to return to "our theory."
Ho says: "Now we ask, is there
any while voter willing to say that
the Creator, who intended him to
be above a negro, has not given
lira brains and manliness to main
tain hie white standard." That is
just the point, Mr. Editor. We
think the white voters havo "brains
and manliness" enough to maintain
their white standard. But how
shall they doit? Will the "white
standard" be most eflectuallv
'maintained" by 'voting with the
writer ot that jumbled up article,
in your last issue! and with the
Ion. H. S. Bundy, et idomne genus,
who. voted to force negro suffrage
and negro equality upon the people
of. the District of Columbia, against
ineir win as exptessea at the ballot-box,
the only 6pot, on earth,
where tney had the power to legis
late upon this subject ? Or will the
"white standard" be better main
tamed by voting with the Democ
racy, who have never willingly per
mitted any person with a "visable
admixture ot African blood" to
vote at any time or in anyplace?
Ave submit iae question to the
"brains and manliness" of Vinton
county, fully confident that they
have the ability to discriminate
and the wisdom to decide.
The writer says, further, "Con
gress legislated negro suffrage into
the District of Columbia, but Con
gress has no power ofcr the State
of Ohio." The writer can not, how
ever, deny that every Republican
member of Congress from Ohio
VOTKD TO FORCE NEGRO SUFFRAGE into
the. District, and that the Democrat
ic members voted against the meas
ure. Now, it is only fair to pre
sume, that each of those Republi
can members, from Ohio, believed
t right, aha 0 the interest of the
white citizens of the District, to al
low the negrf to vote. Is it not ?
And it is equally fair to presume,
that, if it was good for the white
iien of the District of Columbia, to
AVE THE NEGRO MADE HIS EQUAL AT
HE ballot-box, it waidd be equally
ta good for the white men of Ohio.
Should you not think so? At least.
must Tbe so in the judgment of
those Republican members of Con
gress who voted for the measure,
and also m the-judgment of all
those, at home, who endorse their
votes on this subject. And we
here make the charge direct upon
every man, who is a candidate up
on the Republican ticket this fall,
Congressional, Judicial, and Coun
ty, that they dQ, individually en
dorse the vote of Hon; H. S. Bun
dy, for the bill extending the right
suffrage to the negroes of .the
District of Columbia, and that they
favor the same measure in Ohio
We call upon the Republican can
didates to deny this, if they can,
over their own signatures, or stand
convicted."

about "miscegenation" "white hus
.bands or none," . &c, &c, we have
only to ay,: that we . wish . every
voter in Vinton county .may - read

OPPOSITION ARGUMENT.
Prepared by one of thtir number.
MORE ANON. [For the Vinton Record.
THE LAST CALL.
To and Sailors of the
Union Army and Navy.
The last call of the DooLrrrLK-Randall-
Johnson party, Is directed to the Union
soldiers and sailors. . '
It Is signed by a few respectable Generals
of tho Union army, with many who left
the army in disgrace. No Grant, or Sher
man, or Thomas, or Shttldan no great
and good man, whom tho soldiers love
honor, is found signing It. . But, while
to
few Generals of some respectability are In
the list, the majority are second class Gen
erals, who have no political or military
standing. But enough of those Generals.
When tho great loaders call for us, let us
follow; but wheji disgraced and disap
pointed Generals call us, lot us look before
we IcBp.
The call Is made to rally tho soldiers
around the Johnson-Butternut party, and
before we go over body and soul to the reb
els, let us see what the 'call' lias to say.
It claims that Co.nodkss wishes to keep
out the Southern Representatives until the
States adopt the Constitutional Amend
ment, and that Johnson wishes them ad
mitted Immediately to nil their rights and
privileges. We will say this is the propo
sition In the call, and we w ill not argue It,
but propose to look of the argument of the
"call." Tho call says n
"If there were no other reasons why the
Southern States will reject It, (tho Constl
tutlonal Amendment,) it Is enough that It
proposes to disfranchise nearly all the men
In the South who have influence over the
masses of the people. If none wero to be
disfranchised except officers of tho rebel
army, we still could not expect the South
to adopt It ; for a large majority of men in
the lately insurrectionary States from com
pulsion or choice, served in the rebel ar
mies, and their votes nlono would over
whelmingly defeat It. How can wo ex
pect Southern soldiers to disfranchise and
degrade their old commanders? As there
Is no probability that the amendment will
bo ratified by three-fourths of the States
the plan of restoration which Congress ap
pears to have determined upon, Is at best
mpracticable. '
There, fellow-soldiers, is the old tunc
"impracticable" "withdraw your armies."
Crtfcd the Butternuts, In 'C2-3 ai.d '4, . "you
can never whip the South I" Impractica
ble t say the Bnttcrnuts. Why Impractica
ble ? Look at tho "call." It s.ivs : boennan
the South won't agree to It. Why won't
the South adopt the Constitutional Amend
ment? Because the boldiers of the rebel
armies would overwhelmingly defeat it."
It degrades confederate generals t
There is tho whole matter In a nut-shell,
The rebel soldiers not the Union soldiers
are to bo consulted. What the rebel sol
diers iikc, is to be done. What they dis
like, is to be left undone. They control the
aoutn ; tlic houth proposes to control the
Government. They have secured tho ser
vices of several Generals who left our ar
my in disgrace, and a few who didn't so
leave It, but who have sold their political
integrity for a prico; and, by the aid of
these Generals and the Butternuts, you are
to be driven in to giro tho South your
vote, to aid tlrem in controling the nation.
If there Is any thing that makes the re
construction, as suggested by Contrrets.
"impracticable" it is the puppyism of the
North, just as in '63-1, we had more to four
from traitors at home, than we had from
traitors In front of us. So, now, we have
more to fear from tho cofitemptlble,' un
manly, cowardly coHrse of'Northern milk
sops, than from the rebelaxf tho South.
The call says those who went into the
rebel army from "compulsion," will not
vote to degrade their old commanders 1
Away with such bosht
One-third of the rebel army (the pri
vates) was conscripted and is to-dav
loyal than one-half of the names signed io
mm grcut -can.- iney would readily vote
to disfranchise rebel officers. If allowed tn

they will have that privilege. The Con
federate Generals, from Jeff Davis down to
the cruel, inhuman' Forest, were all Demo
crats before the war, and are tho same to
day. They cry, "great Is Johnson 1" Only
few days ilnce a great Johnson meeting
was calfcd at Memphis, (many Union sol
diers, remember Memphis;) and over that
Johnson meeting at Memphis, Gen. ForcsL
of Fort Pillow fame, presided ! t
Andrew Johnson once said : '"Treason is
crime and must be made odious. Trait
ors must be punished and Impoverished,"
and loyal men and the nion army respon
ded amen I At another time, ha snid
"Traitors should take a back seat In the
work of reconstruction." Yet, taking It
all back, he takes a course most pleasant to
the South; courts their lavor and their
votes, and receives the endorsement of the
Inhuman Forest and the mass of rebels who
honor him, and sends out over the land soft
words and glittering phrases, formed into
an address to the soldiers tf the Union,
signed by second class Generals, asking us
to come up in concert with Forest and his
mass of "gory-locked" murderers and as
sassins, to the support of him, Andrew
Johnson and his "policy."
