able and ordetly one ever witnessed
by either, and the large gain made by
the D)emocrats being secured by legit

great measure to the disgust and
hatred with which a large prouportion
of the colored people regard the pies

and Wheeler, and in order to secure
such votes it being necessary to throw
out *se Parish of East Feliciana, and
enough Democratic votes in West
Feliciana to make the parish Repub
lican, we have for this reason and for
no other, consented to protest against
the bounting of the votes as cast, and

of rebel war claims." Upoi this
flimsy and utterly untrue charge it
hurls its fierce broadside of senseless
vindictive sentences at the Southern
representives in Congress and the
Southern people generally. We are
ee denounced as traitors, rebels and hear
(len knows what else. All the epithets
r that could be moulded or forged in the
n iheated tiles of sectional hate are
we launched at our heads, because as the
d Sni alleges, 'e made terms withl
w Hayes in 1676.
to And let us see what tight this viru
er, lent sheet has to accuse the Southern
S1)cmociacy ,of treason to the result
s of the election of 1876. Mr. Tilden
was entitled by that result to 196
Ir. electoral votes out of :3619, or a clear
Sulmajorty of 2:8. Of dhese 196 votes
sih the Southern States gave him 131,
VC and the Northern States only 65. In
ire other words, every Southern States
i voted for the Dlemocratic candidate
ticut, New York and New Jersey, and i
in the West, Indiana, by their votes
at protested against the iniquitous policy
1t: of the Grant administration.
" uring the canvass of 1876 no pa- I
1 per in the United States more ably (i
an.d pe sistently than the Sun de- t
fnpounced the corruptions and usurp a.
Stions of Grantism; no paper more
of furiously asserted that the good of the
cr country and the preservation of the
se principles of the constitution required
6- the defeat of the Repulican party.
1e The Republican party was defeated,
as the Sun declared it shotld be.
But if we are to resolve the vote of
S1876 into its sectional elements, who
won the victory for the constitution I/
Certainly not the loyal North; not I
it the States which crushed the rebel. e
1lion, abolished slavery and conquered i
Sand plundered the neceding States. t
iThe vlictory, the elifn so vehemently g
r aflirmed was essential to thie preser- I
vati etol civil liberty and the re-es- I
tablishment of the constitution was e
won by the rebel Southern Statles,
0 which gave Mr. Tilden 131 of his 196 t
y electoral votes. The South realized I
1 deeply and keenly the necessity fn' '1
d the defeat of the Republican party. d
a The States of this section under the
rule of that party had been crushed
1 in the very dust of poverty and hn
Smiliation. They had nio rights which (
the Union larmies qinartered upo tI
Sthel at d thle carpet-nbag thieves--- j
nt inions of the colnqlerl'ors--were
-willin g or requlired to observe.
1 The South wase, therefore, a unit
n against the Republican party, and it
miade the whol fight foir Tilden and
the constitution. The North, on the '
other hand, like a beast of prey, lick. b
ing its bblod-stained jaws, switching a
its tail ahd growling, |lay with its
paw upon otrr necks, willing rather
Sthat every vestige of constitutional
liberty should be destroyed than that u
its beaten, ruined and lIlostrate vie
s titu should escape its persecutors.
- Thus we find that in the mighty c
Sstruggle of 1876 for the rescue of the
constitution, the loyal North and West e
gave the cause but 65 v6tes. That 1
was all the loyal East and the loyal e
West-the ouu repreosented by the
candidate for the Presidency and the
other by the candidate for the Vicen
Presidency-could do for the consti- A
tution and against fraud, usurpation o
and centialisation, after one of the o
greatest campaigens of political histo
ry. If what the :Sea said of Grant n
and the Republicau party in 1876,
and what it is saying now ie true,
how shameful, how contemptible
how cowardly a record does the ar
North and West, which crushed "the
rebellion,,' show against the splendid
struggle made by the rebel South in
the comwop auee.
And now, in face of these facts the a
South is charged with having sold to
Sout the Democratic victory and bar- U
gained with Hayes. Has the Noew
