The comint; together of the Radical
party in thid county has left one man out
in the cold. This i bad (Baird), but we
predict that he will throw a few hot shot
before tke thing ia over.
The Democratic 13 1 ate Convention

Arch Hughes e&i.l in hia speech Satur
day that the Republicans were bo well or
ganized now as to bo able not only to
elect their .Legislators, but Congressmen
and Governor. Give us a fair divide,
Arch. This id too much like taking
things by storm but you have got a
black cloud at your back.
The great lielknap impeachment trial
is ended at last, by the Radical Senate
voting that it had no jurisdiction. It was
doubtless a case ot want" of jurisdiction,
but the Radicals dodged the question, in
order not to puni.sli one ol their men. It
is ever thus they "carry on reiorm within
Jude Hughes said in his speech Sats
urday that the St. Louis Convention
had given us two men for standard bear
ers, who wero men of principle, and who
would bo triumphantly elected in Nov.
Of course this was an innocent mistake
on the part of the Judge. Ilia hearers
however, applauded the remark lustily.
Of course you meant the Cincinnati Con
vontion, Judge, but then truth will assert
itself, and you were correct this time.
The report of the Hon. V. C. Whit
thorue, Chairman of the Committee on
Naval Affairs, is before the country. It
is the result of si.v or eight months pa
tient research into one department of
Grant's rotten administration, and is pro-
Dounced masterly and unanswerable. Tbe
ability and energy of the Chairman is the
theme of universal praise, and it is be
lieved that he has succeeded in furnish
ing evidence sufficient for the impeach
ment of Secretary Robeson or "Robber.
son,'' as the New York Hun calls him.
Don't forgot that to-morrow is the day

The Presidential Canyass.
Now, that the county elections are over'
and the reBult has been given to the peo
ple, let the Democratic party which has
been unfortunately split up, compromise
all past differences, forget personal feel-
ir.?a and differences, shake hands over
the chasm, and come tip as one man,
and join the march for reform.
We have now just entered fairly upon
the greatest campaign that has ever been
in this country, and it behooves us, in
this Centennial year, to return as near as
possible to those days, when corruption
in high places, not only met with a just
rebuke from the people, but when there
was no delay in meeting out justice to
the criminal, be ho high or low, when the
phrase of "let no guilty man escape''
would have been heeded.
The Republican party has been ar
raigned before the bar of the people, and
the argument, both pro and con, as to
their guilt or innocence, has commenc
ed, the evidence has been overwhelming.
Whenever the investigating committees
of the Democratic Congress have bes
gan to look into matters, they have
iouud a perfect cess pool of corruption,
which even astonished them.
The Republican party foresaw in con
vention assembled, that it would never
do for them to nominate a man who had
been too prominently identi6ed with the
prdsent administration, and they forsook
their leaders, and dragged forth from, as
it were the shades of private life, Hayes,
of Ohio, and made him their standard
bearer, and boasted that they had pres
sented a candidate who was unimpeacha
ble, and against whose honesty no charge
could be brought.
Let us see if Mr. Hayes is not respon
sible for all that is'past. The party may try
to shirk the fearful responsibility, and
odium under which they are now resting,
by putting in such a plea, but Mr. Hayes,
in endorsing the present administration,
and approving of its course, makes
himself responsible. The Republis
can party, as a party, cannot dodge the
issue. Babcock still goes unpunishsd.
Belknap is disgraced, and your President
accepted his resignation to try and save
that punishment he deserves. Robeson
is still Secretary of the Navy, although
fraud of the most glaring kind has been
discovered in his departmet, Orth,
whose connection with the Venzuela
swindle, is your candidate for Governor
in Indiana, and you say that with thi b
common swindler, who you yourselves
would throw overboard, if you were not
afraid, will carry that State. The Em
ma Mine swindle cannot be blotted out
from momory simply by accepting the
resignation of Schenck.
Why did Bristow's resignation find its
way to the White House? and why was
Jewell's so peremptorily demanded?
Were they t honest? It looks very
much that way.
No, the Republican party is corrupt
and extravagant; it has been building up
a money aristocracy on the ruins of an
impoverished country, and the hand wri
ting now appears upon the political ho
rizon, "Mene ! Alene ! tekel Upbarsen.'
The people have listened to your oft re
peated promises of reform, and have
longed for a fulfillment of those promi
ses. They see no more prospect now,
than they did ten years ago, and are de'
termined to try a new administration.
nnsllo Killed In I lie Battle wilh
'nslcr? A Correspondent's Story.
I for. Ht. I'aul I'ioneer-Press and Trlbuiie.l
By those in a position to judge, it is
now considered more than probable that
Sitting Bull was killed on the 25th of
June, in the battle which proved so dis
astrous to the gallant Custer and the
Seventh Cavalry. While General Terry
was going over the battle-fields an old
Sergeant, for many years in the service
of the frontier, rode up to the General
and sni J that, Although be bad never
seen Bitting Hull, from the descriptions
he had heard given ot him he believed
that he had found his body and took from
his saddle a sort of wrapper, made of
three large elk skins sewed together;
beautifully tanned and elegantly orna
mented, in which he had found a body
wrapped lying in a ravine noar the vil
hige: A large number of ponies had
been led up to the body and their throats
cut, a custom observed by the Sioux
when chiefs die. Gen. Terry sent
number -f men with the Sergeant to look
at the boily. and among them rred. Gi
rard , the interpreter at Fort Lincoln
who said that he had, on one occasion
seen Sittmc Bull. Giraru said that
wns not the body of the chief, as one of
his legs was suortertban the other, and
conseiiuently be stepped on the ball o
the other foot, and the body found did
not indicate any such deformity. How
ever, there w(.re others who insisted that
the body was' that of Sitting Bull. These
parties gave as their reason for suppos
ing it to be his body that Sitting Dull
had lost two fingers on his left hand.which
hal been the case with the chief whose
body loy before them, so that at the time
that Col. I'.. W. smith, Uea. lorry a Ad
i itiint, loft for Bismarck, it was still i
question whether Sitting Bull had been
killed or not.
I'pon Colonel Smith's arrival at Bis
marck he laarned that there was a gentle
man here who had lived on tho Upper
Missouri for the past fifteen years, and
who has seen Kitting Bull frequently.
The Colonel sent for Mr. Courtney, aud
your correspondent was present when tho
interview took place.
Colonel Smith to Mr. Courtney Have
you ever seen Sitting Bull?
Mr. Courtney Yes, Sir; have seen
hitu tivo or six times, and havj talked
with him through an interpreter repeat-
-.l!y. 1 he last tune 1 saw mm was in
1 sTO, at h'ort I'eck. Wo were aroused
early one morning by firing outside the
ptuckude, Kitting Bull having attacked
the agency. The agent by evening suc
ceeded in communicating with that pr
sonnge, and ascertained that he wanted
ammunition'. The agent asked him to
come inside the stockade. This he re
fused to do until the next day, when he,
with a few of his men, visited the agency.
The agent told him that the Great
Father loved him, and that he does not
want to liiiht with his children, that if he
would make peace with tbe whites they
would treat him kindly. Pointing his fin
ger at the agent, Sitting Bull said: "You
nre tho chief of liars, and you know that
there does not live a white man but bates
the Indian, nor f n Indian who does not
hate 'he white man, and it will always be
so as long as the grass grows and the
water runs. I did not come here to
make peace, but for ammunition, and I
am going to have it, I and my men will
fight the white men wherever and whenev
er we can find them." The agent gave
Sitting Bull what ammunition he wanted,
and a new rifle, with other articles, which
he took to his men.
Col. Smith to Mr. Courtney Describe
Sitting Bull's appearance.
Answer Sifting Bull is s large, fine
looking man, with prominent features,
particularly his nose; has quite an intel
lectual expression on his lace, and is an
Indian which would attract your atten

particular by which you ' could identify
Answer Yes: he had lost two fingers
on his left hand.

A controversy has sprung up in some
of the newspapers as to the meaning of
the pledge given by Governor Hayes in
the event of his election to the presidens
cy not to accept a nomination for a sec
ond term. Republican journals declare
that it was intended as a pointed rebuke
to the aspirations of President Grant; but
it could scarcely apply to his nomination
and election a second time, as it is gen
erally understood that Governor Hayes
supported it and voted lor it. 1 he oppo
sition papers more plausibly insist that
the pledge given by Governor Hayes is
intended as an intimation to the rival
Republican candidates that in grateful
consideration for their nominating him to
the presidency, as a means of comprom
ising conflicting interests, he will step

The True Refcra.
Below we give a few extracts from a
speech on the political situation by Gen.
L. P. Walker, Kx-Confederate Secretary
of War, at Johnson's Wells, Ala., July
That idea is reform; not a superficial
and transitory reform, vagrant and un
steady in its movements, sensitive to crit
icism, and obedient to party necessities;
but radical, thorough And excessive.
reaching the evil wherever it may be
found, whether in Republican or Demo
cratic practices- Our declaration of
principles perfectly outlines the form and
pressure of the evils that harass the coun
try; it penetrates the subsoil in which the
taproot of corruption is planted, and is
the living and breathing embodiment of
the spirit of constitutional government.
It demands the abdication of a corrupt
party which seeks to live after its mission
is ended, and the great issues that gave it
soul and spirit have passed into history.
It demands a restoration of the old hab
ita of simplicity and honesty in the pub
lie service. It demands a purification of
the whole edifice ot Uovernment, from
dome to foundation-stone. It proclaims
that "reform ia necessary to rebuild and
establish in the hearts ef the whole peo
plo of the Union." Great as were the
evils of war, terrible as were the suffer
ings of our people, impoverished and
bankrupt at its olose, what the country
has endured from carpet-bag tyrannies,
borne with heroic fortitude, appeals to
the manhood of a Rreat nation, with a
potent eloquence stronger than party al
legiance or sectional estrangement.
This declaration means national Govern
ment, with restored confidence, returning
prosperity, home ru'c, revived memories
of the glorious past, one brotherhood,
and the LTnion as it was under Jefferson
and Jackson, and as it will be, thank
God' once again under Tilden.
THS rKESSfKE OF MKSOOVEBNMEifT

Local taxes alona in the United States
are within a fraction of the eutire revenue
of the British government. Yet that gov
ernment supports and maintains a pro
lific royai family, plants and protects dis
tant colonies, and governs in vice-regal
munificence a great Eastern empire.
But bring the com parison home. Comi
pare the costs of government now with
preceding administrations, and the pic
ture is still more revolting. The cost of
Washington's administration, in its high
est expenditure, was a little over $4,000,s
000; that of John Adams less than $7,000,
000; that of Jefferson less than $8,000,
000; that of Monroe less than $17,000,000;
that ot Jackson, with Indian wars, less
than $31,000,000; that of Van Buren less
than $38,000,000; that of Polk, with the
Mexican war included, less than $54,000,-
900; that of Pierce $00,000,000: that of
Buchanan a little over f 60,000,000; and
that of Grant's last year & little over
$394,003,000: Thia increased expendi
ture in administration necessitated a pro
portionate in Federal taxation. Thus the
Federal tax, in 1820, was $10,000,000; in
18G0 it was $C0,000,00O; and in 1870
$450,000,000. In 1850 the population of
the United States was 23, 101, 87b, paying
a Federal per capita tax of $1 72; in i860
it was 31,443,321, paying a like tax of
$1 91; and in 1860 it was 38,558,271, and
paid a like tax of $11 67. It is thus seen
that the increase of public expenditures,'
including interest on the public debt, has
been since 1860 200 per cent., while the
population of the United States has in
creased only 40 per cent., and the ratio
of Federal taxation, per capita, has in
creased from 1870 to 1874 about 600 per
cent. What. has become of this immense
increase of taxation, taken from tbe earn
ings of the people? It has not paid the
public debt; it has not filled the public
treasury; it is not hoarded for resumption.
Where then is it? It has been squander
ed under the guise of official expendi
ture, in the license of party corruption; it
has been used to debauch the motals of a
great party, through the instrumentalities
of the civil service; and-it has organized
and perpetuated unconstitutional satrapi
ies in the Southern States to overawe a
conquered and submissive people, and
suppress the freedom of the ballot-box,
that carpetbaggery,' with all its train of
evils, might ruin what war in its most gi
gantic proportions had not destroyed,
How long can the country bear this presss
ure? ,No doubt we possess great materU
al capabilities, a marvelous power of re
cuperation, and hopeful vigor of vitality,
as expansive as the spirit of liberty and
broad and continental as the territory we
inhabit, But these capabilities and pows
era have their limitations. This is shown
in the general depression of business; in
the timidity of credit, in the bankruptcy
of States, and in the universal cry of
'hard times.' lhe remedy for all this
lies neither in undue contraction nor in
flation of the currency, nor yet in forced
and premature resumption of specie pay
ments. The disorder is radical, aud
although not immedicable, is beyond the
quackeries of legislation. The remedy
there is but one is in the hands of the
people. It is embodied in one word
reform but, like truth, this word is
many sided. It affects every public ques
tion, and emoraces all general interests
WHO CAN RESCUE THE REPUBLIC ?
What reform has Governor Haves ever

extravagance has he ever eliminated from

lie is a gentleman and that 13 a com

common as to pass unobserved, in public

the chief magistrate of a great nation,
than the private virtues that adorn do

strong convictions: faith in his destiny,
and confidence m his jremus. He must
be a master-general the throne itself,
greater than all the powers behind it.
Governor Hajes was nominated because
he had none of these characteristics, and
pre-eminently because he was not a
leader. His convictions had never crys
talized into a single idea or principle.
If he had faith in his destiny, it was the
subordinate and inferior destiny of mere
party allegiance; if he had confidence in
in his genius, it was the confidence of

service; in a recovery of all the great

so great a departure from all the rules
and traditions by which thty have gov

people for the last ten years? No. Gov.
Hayes is the political ward of the reject
ed leaders of the Republican party, and
will be under their direction, and subject
to their control, in tbo administration of
his high ollice.
Reform, o be worth anything, must
begin by a change of party administra,
tion. We must return to the simple
principles of Jefferson, and the honest
practices of Jackson, and this can .be
done only through the ascendency ot the
Democratic party. The central light in
our platform is "as' a beacon upon the

is "as rivers of water in a dry place; as

It was said of the first Emperor Alexan

may be with equal truth be said of Gov.
Tilden, that his public career is to the

solemn promises made by a great party

Curly the Crow Indian's Story.
Correspondence New York, lli-rakl.i
lhe Crow Indian Curly is bei;eved to
be the only survivor of the 'b men who
went into action with Custer. He is very
clear in his knowledge of the light, and
has made a statement. He f-aj-s he went
down with two other Crows and went into
action with Custer. The general he says,
kept down the river on the north bank
four miles, after Reno had crossed to the
south side above. Custer's object was
to cut off the Indians. He thought Reno
would drive down the valley and at the
same time attack the village on two sides,
he believing Keno would take it at the
upper end, while he (Custer) would go in
at the lower end. Custer had to go fur
ther down the river and further away
from Reno than he wished on account of
the steep bank along the north side; but
at last he found a ford aud dashed for it.
The Indians met him and poured in a
heavy tire from across the narrow river.
CHSter dismounted to fight on foot, but
could not get bis skirmishers over the
stream. Meantime hundreds of Indians,
on foot and on ponies, poured over the
river, which wa only about three feet
deep , and filled the ravines on each side
of Custer's mem Custer then fell back
to some high ground behird him, and
seized the ravines in his immediate vi
cinity. The Indians completely suround
ed Custer and poured in a terrible fire
on all sides. They charged Custer on
foot in vast numbers, but were again and
again driven back. '1 he fight began
about 2 o'clock and lasted, Curly says,
almost until the sun went down over the
bills. The men fought desperately, and
after the amunilion in their belts was ex
hausted, went to their saddlebags, got
more, and continued the fight. Curly
says more Indians were Killed than Cus
ter had men. He also says the big chief
(Custer) lived until nearly all his men
had been killed or wounded, and went
about encouraging his soldiers to tight on.
He got a shot in the left side and sat
down, with his pistol in his hand. An
other shot struck Custer in the breast
aud he fell over. The last oltieer killed
was a mau who rode a white horse (be
lieved to be Lieutenaut Cook, adjutant ol
the Seventh, as Lieutenants Cook and
Calhoun wre the only officers who rode
white horses, and Lieutenant Calhoun
was found dead on the Fkirmish lice, near
the lord, and probably fell early in the
action). Curly ays wheyi he saw Custer
was hopelessly surrounded, he watched
his opportunity, got a Sioux blanket, put
it on and worked up a ravine, and when
the Sioux charged he got among them
and they did not know him from one of
their own men. There were some mount
ed Sioux, and seeing one fall, Curly ran
to him, mounted his pony and galloped
down, as if going toward the white men.
but went up a ravine and got away. He
says as he rode off he saw, when nearly a
mile from the battle-field a dozen or
more soldiers in a ravine fighting with
Sioux all around them. He thinks all
were killed, as they were outnumbered
five to one and apparently dismounted.
The men were no doubt part of the thirty
five missing men reported in the dis
patches of Gen. Terry. Curly says he
saw one cavalry soldier who got away.
He was well mounted, but shot through
both hips, and Curly thinks he died of
his wounds, or starved to death in tbe
bad lands, or more likely bis trail was
followed and he was killed by the Sioux.
Curly did notleave Custer until the bat
tle was nearly over, and he describes it
as desperate in the extreme. He is quite
sure the Indians had more killed than
Custer had white men with him, and says
the soldiers fought until tho last man fell.
The other Crow Indians in the battle
The Republican candidate is Mr.
Hayes. The Democratic candidate is
Mr. Tilden. We can let their portraits,
as drawn by Republican hands, stand
for the observation and instruction of
readers. What the Republican Boston
Advertiser said of Mr. Hayes last sum
mer, and what Mr. Parke Godwin, who
until- this year has voted the Republican
ticket, since the formation of the party
in 1854, says of Mr. Tilden, are given
Parke Godwin To-day.
In all the relations of lite he is purity
itself. At the same time he has always
been a public-spirited citizen. While he
was still a youth his early discussions of
intricate questions efXfinance attracted
the attention ot maturer miuds by their
singular penetration and judgment.
Professionally, he has taken rank with
Van Buren, Brady, O'Conor, Graham,
Evarts, Kirklaud and other foremost law
yers. Mr. Tilden seems to me to com
bine, more than any man now before the
public, a profound understanding of the
philosophic grounds of political opinion,
and the sagacious tact aud energy of the
man of business.
This union of theoretic insight with
practical capacity has been singularly
shown in his administration of the affairs
of this State. Mr. Tildon-in his short
tenure of the place, has evinced a master
ly fitness for all its duties. He has de
feated a multitude of ill-considered and
improper bills, rectified many m"inor er
rors of administration, overthrown a
fraudulent aud gigantic conspiracy and
reduced the taxation from over $15,000 -000
iu 1&75 to less than $rf,000,000 in
ltf 76, wish an assurauce that, if the
changes he has suggested are followed,
the decrease will be two or three millions
more in 1877! He was never 60 much
of a partisan as to render him insensible
to the higher duties of the citizen. He
separated frcm the bulk of his party in
this city when he undertook to beat down
the infamous iweed gucg, intrenched b
the laws aud possessed of an almost over
whelming torce. It was against the ad
vice of mBny of the most eraineut men of
his own party that he assailed the canal
ring, whose ramifications extended
through nearly every county in the State,
aud whose wealth and influence were
supposed to be invincible. And it was
against a large and well combined fac
tion of his own party that he lifted it at
St. Louis out ot thj quagmires Ot" doubt
and error in which it was floundering, and
piaced it on the high ground of us an
cient traditions. Mr. Tilden is cautious
and wary, and never acts until assured of
foothold on truth and right, but then he
is as tenacious in pursuit as a sieutn
hound, and absolutely inflexible.

Boston Advertiser, June i, 1KT5.
We are not yet in possession of full in
formation concerning the reasons that
actuated the Ohio Republican Conven
tion to nominate ex-Uovernor Hayes m-
stead of Judge Tatt, bnt some of them,
and perhaps there were no others, he on
the surface. It was unquestionably the
work ot the small managers of focal po
litical rings, acting in conjunction with
the men of better character but no more
tact, who insist that a candidate shall be
of their opinion or of no opinion concern-.
inc the merits ot their private and par
ticular hobby-horses. Judge Tr.ft, al
though a man ot conspicuous ability aud
various accomplishments, is not a politi
cian. Although often consulted by and
of strong influence among the thinking
faen ol the party, he has never consorted
with "workers,'' and they were uncertain
ot their standing in his regard. The
Ben Egglestoh ring of Cincinnati was
dreadtullv afraid of him; not without
reason. Hayes they knew. He had
been governor for two terms, and there
never was any danger that he would infc
stitute any reforms to hurt, lie is a
man of fair ability, good natured, correct
in his personal habits, honest, sound in
the Republican faith but without much
force or independence. Wilkie Collins'
description of Mrs. Vesey is applicable to
him: "He posesses all the cardinal virs
tues.but counts for nothing." Alter serv
ing as governor four years, distinguished
bv no special brilliancy of administration,
he yielded to Gen. Noyes. Once since
he has been defeated tor Congress, be
fore Judste Taft's name was brought for
ward General Hayes had publicly and as
positively as possible declined to be a
candidate. The day before the conven
tion the Cincinnati uezette published an
extract from a letter written by General
Hayes, in which he said: 'T wish you

A Leading Southern Journal on the
Richmond Whig Cons.
This Hamburg trouble in South Car
olina and many other Ihinga of reoent
occurrence at different points, in he
South admonish us that if we tvould
not puller a fatal loss of votes at the
North we must by some means silence
or unload the men who are- committing
these acts and making thia bad record,
for which the Conservative party of the
South is held responsible. We can acfsn
wer for the great mass of the Southern
people that they are peaceab'y inclined
and deni re to be kind and friendly in
tteir intercourse with and treatment of
the colored people, but, unfortunately,
there are a tew bad men in every com1
munity, ignorant and wicked, generally
desperate in lortune and wholly worth
less in character, who delight in iust
such scenes, as that recently enacted at
Hamburg, and the misfortune is that
public opinion is not outspoken en
ough to discourage thcse bad men from
such acts against the weak, while too
often the conduct of the negroes, them
selves, set on no doubt by rascally
white men of the evil disposed and tur
bulent of their own race, ia such aa to
exasperate an entire community to
such an extent that the desperate char
acters take advantage of the momentary
excitement to perpetrate acts which the
Ieople are prompt to repudiate the next
moment, but are powerless at the time
to prevent. Thia is the history of all
these negro disturbances throughout the
South. They are generally causeless
and could be wholly prevented if the
Letter citizens would set their faces
against all acts of violence and give the
evil disposed among them to uuder
btand that peace mutt be kept, aud all
men regardless of race or condition, pro
tected in full enjoyment of their rights
under the law. It is ridiculous to say
that the people cannot keep the peace
We know that in some of the States the
authority is in tbe hands of the blacks,
and the white people might with some
.bow of reason shirk all responsibility;
but i3 that the proper course? We
think not. It is to their own interest
not only In the present but in tho fua
ttre, that law aud order should prevail,
and as they have all tha moral force, all
the wealth that is lelt and all tho intel
ligence, they ought to te able to so
shape matters that they can control and
keep in cheek the more brute elements
of - their society, no matter whether
tl.ev be a numerical majority or not.
The world at large will undoubtedly
take this view ot the matter in consider- I
inK our condition, aDd will wonder i
why the virtuous, moral and intellect !
ual elements in our eociety cannot di-
root affairs to suit themselves and aa ;
t ume the control of tUe ignorant and
imbecile herd. We cannot avoid the
criticism. Tbe white race is in every
respect tbe strongest in the South, and
to it the country will look for tbe main
tenance of peace and good order and for
tbe prevention ot these outbreaks
among the lower orders. We owe to
our Democratic friends at the North,
who are doing all they can for the res
toration of good government, and for
the relief ot this section from the odious
rule to which it has been subjected,
that we should do all in our power to
strengthen them and . uphold tbeir
bands, and we can best eiiect this by
keeping our roughs and rowdies down
and our fools silent. We must gel rid
of these enfans terrible, either by sends
ing them to bed or unloading them and
repudiating all responsibility for their
acts and utterances, refusing even to
apologise for or conceal their wicked
and inexcusable crimes. We cannot
carry the dead weight of these repeated
outrages in Mississippi, Louisiana and
South Carolina', land hope to win tbe
election thus handicapped, and it were
better tar that we should give up all
hope of those States, as we have ot some'
ethers, than that we should run tbe risk
of losing Northern States by becoming
responsible for such acts aa this recent
ly perpetrated at Hamburg, and for the
silly utterances ot cross-roads papers,
whose editors are never so delighted ae
when venting their wrath over some
imaginary insult offered them by the
Yankees, by wholesale denunciation of
friend and toe alike in that section.
With proper means adopted to keep
the rowdyish element in its place and
tbe practice of a little common sense by
our people in their daily conversation
and style of utterance our pros
pects would improve wonderlully iu
the North, and there would be no fear
of our ability to carry a sufficient num
ber of electoral votes in that section to
secure the election of the Democratic
candidates; but if we permit these wild
nadmen to rage and bluster and get up
riots or inyite the negroes to inaugur
ate them that they may have the pleas
ure of putting them down, Morton's
crimson banner will triumph in spite
of us, and we shall lose every North
ern State- and that, too without in
the least ameliorating our condition or
advancing our interest in the south.
Let us be wise in time and stop all this
nonsense at once.

Therf is a new step out among the ; oung

It threatens greater popularity than the

that of the body being inclined forward to
