A. F. A. Polk, the negro who -was
elected Magistrate in Itais district, on the
3rd of Augist, said in' a public apeechon
Saturday last, before the Radical mass
meeting, that when ba went to Pennsyl-.
vania to school, he was introduced as
'Mr. Polk, of Tennessee." That at first
he was astonished at such lamilianty,
bat that a day or two afterwards, he was
invited to dine with one of . the students,
and that when he wint into the white
man s parlor, and was introduced as
Mr. Polk to his sisterl and sat down at
the same table with the family and par
took of their hospitalities, he was still
more astonished; bat that when he went
nto his classes, and found that he was
superior to any .of his class-mates in
Mathematics, and that when they would
come to him and ask him to translate
. . . .. .
some sentence in Greek, he found tnat
he was as good as any white man, and
superior to some ot them in his classes.
Polk's whole speech Was one that appeal
ed to the worst 'passions oi the ignorant
negroes. When they saw him.one of their
color, standing up before them, making
such statements, they look upon him as
an oracle. His rem Irks were calculated
to arouse all the feelings of his
race, and was intended to draw the "color
line.'' Let Democrats read what Polk
says in public. The glove has been
thrown down by him , and let us remem
ber that this is the policy of the party.
We admit thatjthere must be some Re
publicans in this county, who belong to
the better class of tllat party, who do not
approve of Polk's speech. In fact, we
know this to be so, but he had the mass of
the negroes with him, and their history
proves that they wilt never listen to the
dictates of reason,

Sule, the People Hours..
The virtues and vices of an adminis
tration are known by its A nita. When
ever distress pervades any country;
whenever vice predominates; whenever
licentuousness and crime wanton with
impunity; whenever the moral and in
dustrious are discontented with tbeir
lot, and alarmed for their security: it is
undeniable that whatever may be the
form of government, there is either
some inherent defect in the constitu
tion.or some perversion ql'ita principles
hv mal-adminislration. Our form of
government is the best; our people more
intelligent than the people of any other
country; our soil rich and our olimate
varied capable of a greater variety of
production than that of any other coun
try. In all these respects we are emi
nently blessed. Yet agriculture is pros
fitless; commerce stagnant; mannfactur
ing stopped, and thousands of operators
out ot employment; our people over
whelmed with debt and taxes, Indusv
try is deprived of its incentive and de
spoiled of its reward. Fraud is sanc
tioned by power, and the dissolute who
live by fraud and stealth lauded as pa
triots. Man has lost confidence in his
fellow-man. Virtue is proscribed, and
the virtuous in despair. The constltu
tion is marked, aud the will of the cor
rupt party leaders, set up as the law of
This condition of afiaira is not confin
ed to any State, but prevails from Maine
to Texas. So the fault is not in the local
or State irovernments. With our form
of government, people, soil and climate
this sad condidtion of our country must
be owing to the mal-administration of
the party in power in the national gov
ernment. This party has had nnlimi
ted control of the country for the last
sixteen years. It has not been tramel
ed or limited even by constitutions. Its
ascendency has been so great that it
has amended the constitution as it
pleased when in its recklessness of
full power it deigned to respect the con
stitution at all. The party has had such
power that it could, and has passed, and
could execute every measure it might
devise. This party with absolute con
trol has been given a fair trial for six
teen years twelve years since the
civil war time enough to devise, ma
ture and execute all their plans and pol
icies. And yet behold the condition of
our naturally blessed country. To thi
condition we are brought by the mal
administration of the Republican party
Can any man, who Is not either a fool or
a knave, listen patiently to the demand
of this party that it should be longer
continned in power? The condition of
the country, without consideration of
the numerous individual instances of
corruption and incapacity in the highest
offices, is sufficient to prove the party in
power incapable and unworthy of future
trust. Unless a majority of the Ameri
can people have,with the administration
sunk into utter corruption and imbe
cility we will have a change of parties
in power from March next.
Tennessee and Alabama.
Mr. 8. Q. Hull, of Eyota, recently re
turned from a trip to Central Tennessee
and Alabama, furnishes ns . with a lew
items concerning the country visited. He
left home en tho 22d of May, and reach".
ntr Nashville, traveled sooth through the
counties of Williamson, Maury and Giles
in Tennessee, and .Limestone and Madi
son in Alabama. Apple trees were in
blossom when he left home, and when he
reached Columbia. Tenn., he found ap
ples large enough for cooking purposes.
Corn and cotton are the principal crops
raised, but considerable winter wheat is
grown in some localities, ine wneai
was light this year, and cotton naraiy
worth raising on account of low prices.
Fruit, including apples, peaches, pears,
plums, grapes, blackberries, etc., is very
abundant. The price of land in Tennes
see varies from $25 to $30 per acre. In
Alabama the land ranges from $5 to $15
an acre. The greatest curse to the latter
state has been the rule of the carpet-bag
gers. The people are anxious to encour
age northern emigration, but tney want
men of industrious habits to settle among
Mr. Hull says the people of the South
have been grossly misrepresented by
partisan newspapers of the North. In

white people are anxious to have them
become educated. A leading Democrat,
in referring to the condition of the color
ed race, said that so long as the negroes
were free, they desired to inprove their
condition as much as possible. Another
gentleman, born and reared nnder the
slave system, said he would not turn his
hand to have the institution of slavery
restored, for it was cheaper and more
nrofitable to hire free than employ slave
labor. They were satisfied that slavery
is done away with. Mr. Hull says that
the neonle are heartily tired of the cor-
rnnt rule of the camel-banners, and are
not anxious to have the experiment of
placing them in power repeated. The

our country. We hope Mr. Hull will

The Breach Widens.
Eoutwell's liissliislppl Report.
As the Ides of November approach,
the Republican party begin to show their
hand. Boutwell's report is but the begin
ning of that policy which will be pursued
by the party in the present campaign
Their chances for re-election to power are
growing slim, and they will have recourse
to any desperate means. The elections
two years, ago, however, ought to have
taught them that the flaunting of the
"bloody shirt" had but little effect on the
thinking men of the North. The peace
and prosperity which reigned all over the
south when tbe .Democrats were in power
gave the lie to all their statements, and
truth iiiado itaslf folt f"or all tbo country.
The consequence was tne signal defeat of
the party throughout the South. Missis
sippi rose up and shook off the shackles
of oppression which had well nigh crush
ed all her vast resources. The adminis
tration ot her state affairs fell into the
hands of her own people. The temple
was cleared out. Davis fell before the
Senate, there being but two dissenting
voices against his impeachment for high
crimes i'n office. Ames resigned to save
himself xfrom disgrace, and since the
State has been quiet, having gotten rid
ot these head devils of Radicalism. And
yet Mr. Boutwell would suggest that Mis
sissippi and other such states should be
placed under a territorial government

retrenching the expenses of the Govern

some few hundred millions of the poin

most extravagant and expensive Gov

there is to govern, ana pay tne mils,
and this very extravagance (and conse

that bears so heavily upon trade, and
crushes it to the earth. Aside from the

of the war, and in no sense extravagant
aside from these, I say, compare the
expenses of the Government in 1860
with the expenses in 1875. Taxation
has increased two hundred per cent,
population forty per cent., and wealth
not at all. I don't believe the country,

contrary notwithstanding. Tbe re

We will be well on the road to hard pan
by that time, and tne aggregate ot
wealth returned will be less than that
of 1S70. It will take much more than

and eckless extravagancies ot the war

A Black-star Argument -
The Republican "workers'' are compli
menting tne intelligence 01 the colored
voters by ensuring them that if the Dem
ocrats are successful in the coming presi
dential contest the whole colored race will
be thrust back into slavery. This all
sounds very absurd, but the trequency of
the repetition ot the assertion is pretty
good prool that 11 is capable ot making
some impression, and therefore it is worth
refuting. 1 lie thirteenth amendment to
the constitution of the United States guar
antees lrecuoin to every one in the coun
try, and no party would have the power.
even if it had the inclination to repeal
that amendment. But 8.8 a matter of
fact there is no party, or faction, and it
would be hard to find an individual, in
this 'country, that has not abandoned
years ago the idea of slavery. The sen
timent 01 toe wuoie pecpie is now so
averse to the system, that if the bare pro
position ot slavery could be brought up
separated altogether irom tbe circum
stances of our condition, it would not
meet with any support. The Republicans
who endeavor to excite these appreben
sions in the minds ot the colored voters
are quite conscious of the absurdity of
tbeir declarations, and they rarely make
them in a public manner. The warning
of danger is whispered into the private
ear of the colored man, and oftener in
to the ear of the colored old woman, in
hopes it will be whispered from mouth to
ear until it settles into a conviction that
no reasoning can dissipate. Every intel
ligent colored man ought to know that if
there was anything in this whispered dan
ger it would become a subject of general
and open discussion. The fact that it is
not publicly proclaimed siows that those
who make it are ashamed of the absurd
ity of a suggestion which they consider a
strong enough argument for the timid and
weak minds of those they privately en
deavor to persuade. It 111 this kind of in
struction that tbe Kepubhcans count
among theii blessings of education, but
the average colored voter is capable of
understanding this matter in its true light,
and for the sake of intelligence alone it is
worth the time of those who address audi
ences containing colored hearers to dis
pel such foolish apprehensions.. Cour
President Grant announces in a mes

Certainly no Presideut even in time of
