THE MULATTO CONVENTION.
Grand Conglomeration of Blacks,
Whites, Free Lovers and Spiritualists.
Whites, Free Lovers and Spiritualists.---Fred. Douglas, Jack
Hamilton, Parson Brownlow,
Hiram Walbridge and Ben Butler
Cheek by Jowl.
Never was there such a stupendous fiz
zle as tliis Black and White Convention of
mean white men and mulattoes. Toor old
Brownlow was there, with ono foot in the
grave, but as rabid and as abusive as ever.
The entire number of "delegates," all told
that the Mongrels claim as from the South
tlocs not reach three hundred, and three
quarters of those are bogus. Nearly all
the "delegates'' are from Tennessee, West
Virginia and Maryland, It is claimed that
there are fifteen from Kentucky, thirty
from Missouri, ten from Delaware, twelve
from North Carolina, nine from Georgia,
four from Alabama, fifteen from Mississippi,
twenty-two from Louisiana, five from Ar
kansas, and eight from Florida. The names
of those Interesting Individuals, however,
are not announced, the excuse being that it
would not bo safe for them in the commu
nity where they reside if their names were
known. Iu what . sense, then, can these
men be said to be delegates, If they do not
represent constituencies, as this confession
concedes they do not? How can theso
men have the brazen effrontery to say they
represent the South, nnd at the same timo
acknowledge that they are ashamed to
have their names published? Every effort
was made by the Mongrel party to rein
force the feeble phalanx of Southern mean
whites by a large force of northern whites
still meaner, If possible. Ben. Butler, with
his eye out for spoons, and Governor Cur-
tin, Generals Geary nud Bumside, Hiram
Walbrldge, old Ben. Wade, and Governor
Andrew, of Massachusetts, Theodoro Til
ton, etc., etc., wero among the number.
The most pitiful sight of all was to see the
Hon. Ira Harris, of New York, knowu to
be conservative at heart, thus getting down
to the level of a Nigger Convention, in or
der to secure his re-election as United
States Senator. How the love of ofllcc de
moralizes every honorable and noble sentl
ment when it once gets fairly seated 1
One thing Is very apparent among nil
these Southern adventurers. They ro in
tent upon exciting tho negroes tolnsurrcc
lion aud masdaere. . The following conver
sation which took placo at tho Mongrel
Club Rooms iu this city, between a Virgin
ia "delegate" and ono of the Club, will il
lustrate the animus of these conspirators:
Mkan Whitk (in reply to a question)
Well, sir, we arc in a bad state. We can't
do without negro suffrage or another war.
Either we unit call upon the darkles to
ni'in us against tne rebels and rule the reb
els by their votes, or the rebels must rule
us, or we must fight. And if we do, un
less we have very sjieedy help from the
North, it will be ashort matter, asournum
bers are so few.
Neoro Unionist. I am only surprised
that the negroes do not rise wherever they
enn and uuru down tho towns. They
could do this, and they ought to do it.
Mkan Whitk. Well, they'll wait for a
time. They are not ready yet. I asked
thorn myself, when they have been beaten
or ill used, why they don't turn and light,
and they answer, "Wait till we're ready
and then we'll go In and see who'll kill and
burn." And, sir, just as soon as the rebels
ret reconstructed, and attempt to rule the
ilaeks, there will be a rich St. Domingo at
the South.
Nkoko Unionist. What Is the compar
ative population of blacks and whites in
your State?
Mean WniTE. The negroes are more
than one-third as many as the whites.
An Octsideh. What State arc you
from, sir?
Mean White. From Virginia.
Outsider. Old Virginia or Western
Virginia? .
Mean White. Oh, old Virginia. In
Western Virginia they have the rebels un
der their feet, and so they can afford to do
wttnout the negro. Tuey dou't want the
negroes to vote there !
In order to show how the delegates were
gotten up, the following Incident Is rela
ted : A man who had ' followed the army
down to the end of the war in North Caro
Una alluded to the fact, when the cry im
mediately arose, "Why, you'll do for a del
egate," arid he was hurried 'off to head
quarters to be enrolled. He had been
travelling In General Kilpatrick's wake,
and obtaining permission from him for
the sale of whiskey, as that redoubtable
General was "marching on."
- Another Illustration of the design of the
mean whites to incite a negro Insurrection
was furnished this morning, (the 30th
lntsant) by the , remarks of a Missouri
delegate to a listening crowd at tho Con
tinental "I do not design to .fight these
rebols again with white men," was his re
mark, "our policy Is dearly to arm ,and
organize the blacks, and let them do the
work of extermination ad far as in their
power.!'.' . .
The, whole tone of Jack Hamilton's
hangers-on Is the same as this. The truth
is that Northern people do not dream of
the dangerous and villainous designs tt
these' Southern desperadoes, who, in a
hopeless minority, at home most of them
adventurers arid loafers, without any legit
imate occupation or any chance of earn
ing ari honeat livelihoods-see no ' better
chance of bettering their ' condition , than
by plunging the country lntd. a 'bloody
war of races, sneaking out of danger, and
plundering during the :burning and mur
dering 'that would attend euclv an out
break? ...
After parading the streets with as big a
show of numbers' as possible, the -'dele
gates" assembled at .National Hall, when
Thomas Diuant, of Louisiana, was elec
ted President. Tho Convention then pro
ceeded to appoint a committee on creden
tials, also a committee on permanent organ
ization. " ! ,
The Northern delegates met by them
selves, so that, the grand sight of Parson
Brownlow and Fred. Douglass walking In
to the Convcutlon arm in arm did not take
place. Fred, was saved this disgrace. His
cicerone was uo less an individual than
Theodore TUton, of the Indepcndcnt-
Thcir appearance arm in arm in the streets
of Philadelphia was hailed with delight by
the degraded wretches who glory in this
beastly carnival of amalgamation.
The Southern branch of the partl-colorcd
convention of Abolitionists continued their
performances at the Negro Minstrel Hall
In Philadelphia. The permanent organiza
tion was completed by announcing Ex-Attorney-General
Speed, of Keutucky, iis
President, sixteen individuals as Vice
Presidents, and tho same number as Secre
taries. A delegation of strong minded fe
males, under command of Miss Dickinson,
entered the hall and distributed themselves
among the Vlco-Presldents on tho plat
form or the delegates on the floor. Mr.
Speed delivered a somewhat lengthy ad
dress on taking the chair. Committees on
Resolutions nnd on the address of the Con
vention were appointed. A resolution de
manding the publication by President
Johnson of the proceedings of tho Milita
ry Commission investigating tho New Or
leans riots, was referred. A resolution
favoring negro suffrage, raised a storm
which did not subside, until the President
commanded order wi'h his gavel, nnd tho
resolution was referred to the committee
for a fair hearing. Other resolutions were
offered accepting the constitutional amend
ment, forgiving but not rewarding "seces
sionists," and declaring that suffrage
should be conferred on none but tho 'loyal'
and intelligent.
At a meeting of the Northern Govern
ors after the adjournment of the Northern
branch of tho convention, it was determ
ined not to endorse the Southern branch if
they should adopt resolutions in favor of
negro suffrage The delegation from New
York mpt yesterday morulug, nud General
Walbridge , was chosen president, and
Jackson Schultz, Theodore TUton and oth
ers vice-presidents. Mr. Tilton proposed
that the placard In front of the hall should
be corrected in lts.authogrnphy, and then
in a speech: moved the admission of Fred.
Douglass, whloh wo agreed to, Jlr. Doug
lass' being placed' above Tilton's. The
members named then proceeded to Horti
cultural Hall, where the Northern wing
was assembled, with Governor Curtln in
tho chair. Fred. Douglass, Senator Chan
dler, and General. Lane, of Indiana, made
speeches of considerable length. Senator
Chandler said that If Andrew Johnson
did not execute the laws Congress would
impeach him. In the evening Governor
Brownlow made a speech at the League
House, In which he indulged in tho usual
invective aud coarse abuse of the Presi
dent. Governor Hawley and General
Bumside addressed a crowd in front of the
National Hall last night, and the Rev. Mr.
Newman, of New Orleans, addressed the
New Jersey delegation. '
New Definitions.
Nothing can exceed the tenacity with
which the Mongralists hold on to the
word "Union," and nothing is moro re
markable than the meaning now attached
by them to the term.
"A Union man," now means a person in
favor of negro voting, negro amalgama
tion, in fact, in favor of forcing on the
people of the South just such a Constitu
tion as old John Brown and his gang ol
blacks and whites got up In Canada. "A
Unionist' now Indicates a white man, a ne
gro and a mulatto. To be "loyal" is to
acknowledge that Sambo has the same
rights as white men la every respect, and
must be admitted to all social as well as
political privileges. ' Just now, Mongrel
papers groan with nlledgcd outrages upon
"tho Unionists" of the Southern States.
Who are those "Unionists?" Men so de
based that they desire to herd with ne
groeswhose hate against their own white j
brethren Is so intense that they are willing
to degrade their blood and the blood of
their children, In order to gain political
power and revenge themselves on their
neighbors. If it Is possible to conceive ol
baser villains than Jack Hamilton, Parson
Brownlow, Dnrant, Michael Hahn, et id
omni genus, a man must be blest with a
greater imagination than has ever fallen
to the lot of any poet or novelist of an
cient or modern times. And ic is these men
who are paraded as "the suffering Union
ists" of. the South as the greatest patriots
and purest martyrs the world ever saw
Madam Roland exclaimed, "Liberty! how
many crimes are committed in thy name 1"
"We may Veil say, "Union I Union! how
damnable are the , vlllanles which.' have
been committed lu thy nam ! Let it be
remembered when a Mongrel paper speaks
of a KTnion man," it means that he is for
negro suffrage aud ncgrocquality la their
fullest sense. Conscious how unpopular
their.rea sentiments are, the Mongrels veil
their canse undc tfie popular cry of yUn
ion," Tho only wonder is that a single
person In all this .wide land should be so
stupid as to be deceived by them.,; r

Eloquent Extract. The Radicals Speaking Plain--"The
Salt of the Republican Party."
We extractjthe following from the
New York Independent, of August
23, 18G6, a leading ' Republican
organ:
'The antidote to the Philadelphia
movement is to salt the Republican
party with the savor of impartial
justice. The first battle will be in
the coming elections to Congress.
Let no Republican: bo nominated
who is opposed to Equal Rights.
Nay, let no Republican be nomina
ted who is not pledged beforehand
to stand or fall by Equal Rights.
We had cowards enough in the last
Congress. God give us one winter
of brave menl No max shall be
the mext President of the United
States who does not ASK THE
PERMISSION OF THE NEGRO."
Questions for Thinking Men.
What party requires that . the peo
ple be taxed to support a large
standing army? The Radical.
What party requires that the
people be taxed to support a
Freedmen's : Bureau with its
swarms of officials eating out their
substance? The Radical.
What party favors a high tariff
to tax the people for the benefit of
a few New England sharks? The
Radical.
What party is in favor of taxing
the white laborers to support the
negroes'? The Radical.
What party opposes these infa
mous ; abominations? The Con
servative Union Democratic party.
Who pay the expenses of our
Government? The people.
Whose interest is it to have a
cheap Government? The people's.
Thinking men, tax payers, farm
ers, working men, do not allow ap
peals to your passions to blind you
to your own interest, the cry of cop
perhead, rebel, etc., is used to blind
you while your pockets are being
picked. "

The President Insulted at Cleveland.
' 1 ' ' land.
President ' Johnson, during his
speech at Cleveland, 0., on Mon
day night last, was interrupted by
Radjcal'pimps and dastards, who
hissed and shouted at 'him, and in
one instance called him a traitor.
This is ,a specimen of "Abolition
decencylWThe) friends pf the Presi
dent in i the crowd replied with
cheers, and when he ( had finished
his speech .he ; was saluted with
loud and continued plaudits, .... ;,
Blackand-Tan at Philadelphia.
Frederick Douglas told the black
guards we do not use the term in
any offensive sense, but simply
mean those who have constituted
themselves the special guardians
of the blacks -at Philadelphia, that
negroes had as good a right to vote
as the English, Irish and Dutch;
and the argument was applauded
as unanswerable. The thing was
well put by Frederick, and may
have been original with him, but
is not new. . It was, for a cosidera
ble period, a favorite way of putting
the case, by ono certainly, if not
more, of the Republican journals
of this city; and if it has not made
its. appearance of Jate, the . fact is
due .partly perhaps, to prudential
considerations an unwillingness.
by invidious remarks, to alienate
me loreign-oorn voters among ns
and partly to a progress in senti
ment to the point which would
admit that the. negroes have as
good right to vote as any body.. ,
The intellectual state of the as
semblage of persons who anolaud-
ed this saying of tho colored orator
may ue guessed at, from the fact
that they seemed to choose to ba
instructed by negroes and women.
One white delegate from the South
Volunteered a confession that tho
negroes had passed around the hat
among themselves to raise tho
means to pay his expenses, which
will afford a nrettv tood idea of the
style of men of which tho body was
composed, i i Their knowledge . of
and respect for the Constitution
may be seen in the fact that when
John M. Botts declared that a forty
years' study of that instrument had
led him to believe that it gaTe no
power to Conzrreds to enfranchise
the negroes, he was Answered by
nisses. j. is pretty evident that
the longer the Convention sat the
more negroy it grew. Considera
tions of prudence gave way before
the growing enthusiasm. When
Mr. Randolph, a mulatto from New
Orleans,"rushed to the, rostrum and
demanded in tones of impassioned
eloquence suiirage for tho negroes
in consideration of their labors and
their sacrifices in the war. the ex.
citeraent burst all bounds;. Congo
ana oaxon rushed to mutual em
braces. Doufflass and Dicki nsnn
swapped ' hats; and the . chances
seemed to be that the furor would
hardly be gotten rid of without a
resort to those ceremonies which
used to be employed for a similar
purpose by the Ana-baptists and
Adamites in Eurone. tho Vandnn-r
in Africa, and the Millerites if all
mat is saia about them is true in
the United States.
Grand Soldiers' and Sailors' Convention
at Cleveland.
There will be a grand Soldiers
and Sailors Convention in the City
of Cleveland, on the 17th of Sep
tember, the anniversary of the
adoption of the Constitution. This
Convention has been called by the
leading army officers in tho coun
try, such as Custer, McCook, Ros
seau, Crook, Meredith, Ewing, Dix,
Steadman, Blair, Slocum, Sickles,
McClernand, Couch, and many
others well known to the country.

COMRADE TO COMRADE.
Believing that our Government
again in peril, we appeal to you
who have fought to save it, and
who hold it dearer and moro sa
cred than all party ties, to come to
the rescue. Let the soldiers and
sailors agreeing with us in senti
ment, but who cannot in person
attend send delegates through (he
action of their societies, or of local
conventions. Let us meet in force
at Cleveland on the 17th of Sep
tember the anniversary of tho
day when, the. Constitution was
proclaimed by ' our forefathers
and lefc n3ud in restoring the
Unionit created, and tho liberties
wa3 ordained to secure.
Generals Grant, Sherman, Sheri
dan, Custer, McCook, Sleedman,
Crook, Dix, Ewing, Rosseau and
almost the entire list of fighting
generals support President John
son and his policy, and favor tho
election of Congressmen who -will
sustain him in it. A large majority
of the "boys in blue" will do the
same.
Bosn. Abolition Radical leaders
are trying to make Republicans
out of the Irish, by telling' them
that the . Democratic1 party, with
Andy Johnson at its head, opposed
the' Fenian movement. They '-will
have a good time before ; they ac
complish that result. ' 1 .

What They eat in Xenia. The
'Fat Contributor' gives the follow
ing experience of endeavoring to
get dinner at Xenia on the Little
Miami railroad:
"Twenty minutes for dinner,"
shouted the brakesman as we ap
proached Xenia.
Arrived - there, I entered the
dining room and inquired of a
waiter, . . ,
"What do you have for dinner?"
"Twenty minuies" was the hur
ried reply.
I told him I would try half a
dozen minutes, raw, on the half
shell, just to see how they went.
Told him to make a minute of it on
his books. Ho scratched his head,
trying to comprehend the order, -but
finally gave it up and . waited
upon some one else. .
I approached a man who stood
by the door with a roll of money
in his hand.
"What do you have for dinner?"
"Half a dollar," said he.
I told him I would take half a
dollar well done. I asked him if
he couldn't send me, in addition, a
boiled pocketbook stuffed with
greenbacks, and some seven-thirties,
garnished with postage
stamps and ten cent scrip. Also,
Confederate bond, brown, with
lettuce alone (let us alone.) I
would like to wash my dinner
down nith National Bank Notes,
on "drait." -
He said they were out of every
thing but tho bank notes, and he
then ordered a waiter to go to the
bank and "draw" some.
Who Lies? The Jackson Stan
dard persists in saying that Colonel
Moore voted for Zollicofler for
Speaker of the House, and inquires,
"What is the use lying about it?"
Let the Standard answer its own
inquiry. At best, this like the
other matters urged against our
candidate is but a small affair, and
only shows the desperation to
which the Radicals are driven.
"Drowning men catch at straws."
But the charge itself is false, and we
shall now see whether those who
have made it have honor enough
to retract. It. appears from the
Croncressional Globe that 133 bal
lots were taken for Speaker, and
