Fill DAY, SEPTEMBER 129,1376.
Badiealism's Little Game in Indiana.
A whole car-load of negroes, some
dressed in blue blouses and others deco
rated with soldier caps, mostly old ones,
left yesterday morning on tho Ohio and
Mississippi road, their destination sup
posed to be Indianapolis, but the ques1
tion is, why should they have yone b
that road, which is almost an indirect
route, whpn they could io directly by the
J., M. and I. road? Ry going as thev
did, if they went to Indianapolis thej
would have been compelled, anyhow, tc
take the J., M. and I. road tiom Sey
mour. The very natural inference is
and one which every candid man must at
once admit, that their destination wiif
not Indianapolis, but that they intended
to drop out at some point in Indiana at
a distance from Indianapolis. From ap
pearances, they had no idea of attending
the delusive reunion in that city, but
probably by this time are being distribu
ted through certain points iu the State.
Yesterday morning three oflicers were
told by a certain negro that he had gone
as far as JetTersonvilie, but concluded to
come back home. He was to have been
a sergeant in one of the companies of the
"Boys in Blue.'' He that four years
ago he went over to Indiana and voted
against Hendricks for Governor, receiv
ing $1.60 per day while he staid in In
diana. He had been offered the same
sum again to go to Indianapolis and re
main there until ten days alter the Presi
dential election, the understanding being
that he was to vote against the Democrat
ic State and Presidential tickets.
The aflidavit giveu below, as made last
night by George Fin ley, a young negro of
this city, tells the whole tale, ami shows
just who is engaged in the' importation
business. As will be seen, it is made
freely, and without any pecuniary com
pensation being offered him hy any one.
It was made in the presence cf promi
nent gentlemen, whose integrity and ve
racity would not for the moment be doubt
ed. The following is the xlfidavit.
Statk ok Kknttcky, Jefkeksox
Cot'NTY, S. 8. George Fiiiley, first be
ing duly sworn, deposes as follows: My
name is George Finley. I live on Con
gress alley, between Ninth aud Tenth
streets, in Louisville. On hist Sunday
morning, John Cousins, a colored man,
came to me and told me that a man at
the corner of Third and Main, who stay
ed in the railroad oflke, wanted to hire
men to go to Indianapolis, find remain
until ten days after the Presidential elec
tion, and that they would be paid one
dollar and a half per day. As Cousins
and I were walking alon Green street
toward the postotfiee, we met the white
man Cousins told me about, going into
the postofnee. Cousins pointed the man
out to me as the man who had spoken to
him. I asked the white man, as he came
out of the postoflice, how it was about
what Cousins had told me. He said
what Cousins told n;e was eJl ril't that
he would give a dollar and a !-a!f a day,
and would pay tny way to Indianapolis
and back; that he wanted me to stay in
Indianapo-is until ten days niter the
election. He said he would board us
while there and pay all our expenses.
He told us to go to L-.-dcrkranz Hall on
Tuesday night, to the meeting, where I
would see a!! that was unit on, and that
we were to leave Vednsday muming at
half-past six o'clock. T'ui- morning at a
quarter past 7 o'clock. I went to the de
pot at 1-ltli street, but the trin was gone.
The whitman iht talked to me about
going to Indianapolis was a medium
sized, heavy set man; dark brown mus
tache, with blue suit of clothe on; sack
coat, light hat. The man walked a little
bow-legged. Among tbo.-e who went to
Indianapolis so far as I know nre Nnp-
per and mitr, liill Jiiown anil C;rey

company, and were to have Id
nine cape, and cap to wear I was lol l

voluntarily, without pay from anybody.

Indianapolis Letter In the Courier-Journal.
Of this number there are fully three
thousand negroes. More than half these
were brought from Kentucky. There is
a well-grounded belief that not one-third
of the negroes will return to Kentucky
until nf'er the October (lection. The
Democratic State Central Committee has
received further information to-day about
tue importation oi negro voters in tins
State, and there is now no longer a doubt
but that a most gigantic colonization
scheme is on foot t- carry the ( lection by
fraud and corruption, over the honest
votes ol tue people, it lias been ascer
tained to mgiit mat many or the so-cali-ed
veterans have never served in the
arm r, and it is feared that they come to
stay until alter the election. J. II
.lames, ine negro arrested in tins city a
few days since for attempting to ravisl
a young white girl, has made a confes
sion, acknowledging that he was engaged
in the importation and manipulation of
negroes from Kentucky to vote the Radi
cal ticket. lie states that he brought
ten negro men here last spring, and that
they repeated at least a dozen times
each. lie tells a shameful story of Radi
The Ohio Campaign.
From a Chicago Times Kditorial.
The political situation in Ohio is rath
er novel. At first sight Republicans and
Democrats made no doubt that Hayes
would give stimulus to th' vote, and that
it would give a majority for his cause in
October and November. On looking
over the ground, however, the fallacy of
this concession is apparent. In ISTo, on
the fullest vote ever polled, Hayes was
elected by but 2,!5S majority the total
vole standing at the enormous figures
f52:l(!. This was more than r.,000
larger than any vote ever polled. To
gain his victory, Hayes had the help of
all the Germans, but few of whom sup
ort him nor. lie also had the Support
of hard money Democrats aud all
the liberal Republicans, There is, there
fore, no such margin tor him to calcu
late on as in Maine, where, no matter
how much the gain on the part of the
Democrats unless a revolution, the Re
publican majority is sullici.ent to block ir.
The Ohio Republicans have not shared
the general delusion about the State. The
contest waged there is less noisy but
more intense than in Indiana, and the
Hayes papers are doing some of the
most amusing somersauliing ever seen in
politics. Indeed, 'he whole business o!
partnership of the vile kind s ems to have I
pone by common consent into the Intel-; !
of the ( rant presses, the nipportcrs ol

bly in Obio, and the result is j eitectly!
clear, as any unprejudiced ln,.ker-oii
may Hitcst. Hayes will, from pi. i n! up- ;
pearames, not only be beaten in Ohio, j
but beaten by 20,'0 votes i
Sharp -words Passed between
Thomas and Got. Porter
Passengers who arrived yesterday
morning on the Shelby ville accmraoda
tion brought the report that Col. Dorsey
B. Thomas aud Gov. James D. Porier
had quite a spat at that place the day
previous. They report that the Governs
or spoke first, Col. Thomas closing tie
debate. When Governor Porter bad fin
ished he retired from the hall. During
his absence Col. Thomas made some re
marks which the Governor's friends
thought were deserving of attention.
They accordingly notified Gov. Porter of
the fact, whereupon he returned to the
hall and requested Col. Thomas to re
peat what he had said in reference to
himself'd'iring his absence. Mr. Thom
as did so whereupon Gov. Porter oe
nouueeed his statement in strong lan
guage. Mr. Thomas then attempted to
get his cat e with which to assault Porter,
when the latter, reaching for his travel
ing satchel, took from it a pistol and
placed it ii his pocket. Mr. Thomas
stated that he was unarmed and did not
want a diticulty. The friends of each
then epprcached and 1 d both gentlemen
from the hall"
Col. Thomas arrived here on the morn
ing train yesterday, and took up his quar
ers at Room No. 18 at the Commercial
Hotel. Iu the course of the day a re
porter of the American called upon him to
obtain his statement of the affair. He
said that he did not desire to make any
statement regarding the matter; that he
was then engaged in writing a card to be
inserted in to-day's American setting
forth the course he expected to pursue
in the future.
You can at least give me an outline of
what occurred ? queried the reporter.
" I might do that,'' said Col. Thomas,
"but I do dot wish to enter into the af
"Then you will please do me the kind
ness," added the American reporter, "to
tell me that. A good many rumors are
in circulation about the streets and we
would like to present to the public what
vou have to say on the subject?'
" Col. Thomas" Well, I will bo brief.
I denounced some of Gov. Porter's con
clusions and statements as maliciously
false. He was out of the house at the
time, but returned. I repeated the state
ment. He came upon the stage. A
wrangle ensued, in which Porter called
me a liar. I , attempted to reach my
cane to strike him, and he to get his pis
tol from his overcoat pocket, his coat
hanging on the chair beside him. Friends
interfered and stopped it.''
In another column will be tound a card
from Mr. Thomas, which may throw
some furtner light upon the matter from
his side of the question, as to the origin
of the trouble. Gov. Porter's version of
it is yet to be heard. We presume he
spoke yesterday in joint discussion with
Esquire Yardley, at Winchester, as that
was the day of his regular appointment at
that place. He speaks at Fayetteville
to-day, and probably left for that place
immediately after the speaking at Win
chester. A Bloody Affair.
Accivsta, Qa,, Sept. 18. Mrs. Alon
zo Hurley, of Aiken county, South Caro
lina, was on Friday last, assaulted aud
knocked down two or three times by a
couple of negroes. Her screams alarm
ed tiiem and they lied. The citizens,
however, arrested one of them and shot
him, and a warrant was issued for lhe ar
rest of the other. The warrant was
placed in the hands of a constable, who,
with the aid of a 2osse white men, at
temp! ed to make the arrest, which was
res;sted by a large crowd of negroes,
about two hundred in number, and sinn
ed with shot uuns and Winchester rilie.-.
On Sunday the excitement continued.
Both whites and blacks were fully armed,
watching each other's movements. To
ward night a compromise was agreed
to, both X'tirties agreeing to disband and
retire to their homes. The negroe
iireed to tnrrender the colored man who
made the assault on Mrs. Hurley, and de
liver him over to the authorities at Aiken, i
With this understanding the whites di.- j
pcrsed. While retiring to their homes il
is reported that several oi the la' tor were '
ambuscaded and shot by negroes. The
ei'y is full of rumors as to the number J
killed, but there has been nothing definite j
Al'OCSTA, GA., Sept, IS. The pus
sei.ger train from Augusta, for Port Kr.v
al, which left this morning !;t eight
o'clock, has returned. Proceeding to
Jack-on station, the track was discovered
to be torn up, and a freight train which
loft here lit six o'clock this morning was
found wrecked and the negroes had pos

Superintendent Fleming, of the Port

We make the folowing extracts from an
address delivered by Wm. II. Council,
(col) at Green Grove. Ala., September
5th,ls7G, by the request of bis race. It
will be secu that he offers his colored
friends some wholesome advice as to
how they should act in the future. Let
his colored brethren read and ponder
well the course they will pursue in the
c iming Presidential election. He says:
"The more freedom a mau enjoys, the
greater responsibilities he assumes. He
sl ould think what is best for him to do
to carry out faithfully the obligations
of tin se ue privileges and immunities.
In the days of slavery we had some one
to think lor us, now we must think and
act for ourselves. In our new position
we should so act as to r eflect credit upon
ourselves and redound to the peace and
welfare of our country- It is time the
Nfgro of America was showing that he
has a brain and reasoning powers. I as
sert, without fear of honest contradiction,
that the black man is a greater slave to
day than he has ever been since the
deadly L'pas of slavery found footing in
American sou. the manacling of the
wrists and yoking of the neck is not to
bo compared with those influences which
are brought to bear to crush out the mor
al conviction of right and duty Many
more colored meuthan do, would vole the
Democratic ticket if they were not afraid
of being called Democrats, an charged
with selling out to the Democrats, and
going back on their race. Do you t nil
that political freedom? Indeed not. W'e
must learn to be independent thinkers
and actors. We must learn to reason on
questions touching the interests of the
State mi d church. Jt is time lor the col
ored man to lay aside all partisan prej
udice and political bickerings, and con
sider his moral, financial and intellectual
condition. We cannot atford to make
enemies of any men. e must court
the Irieui-lup of all with honorable
meat s 1 his is right.
"We are, to-day, entering upon an era
which will elevate or sink us lorever in
the gulf of oblivion. What shall we do?
Shall we incur the ill-will of forty mil
lions, or .-ball we hold out the olive hranci:
1 peace to every man? I repeat, -hall
we hold out the olive branch of peace,
or r.La.11 we" continue to yield to teachings
of bad men whether Democrats or
Republicans, who care nothing for us
after they have used us? We must en
duavor to d'spel the dark clouds which
hover over our oeautiful Southern homes,
by the shining of the sun of good-will and
plenly. If we do our whole duty, oppres
sion and wrong will disappear as does
the snow before the burning beams of the
powerful Kiug of Day. When you are
right, go ahead it matters but little
who differs with you, God is ever ou the
side ot right.
"Go with that party which is to-day
your friend, and trying to build up the
shattered and torn down fortunes of our
country. If you are couvinced, after
mature deliberation, that the Republican
parly is trying to secure these t'lings,
then vote with the republican party. If
y.ou think o.herwise, act acordiugly. But
upon all occasions, and under all circum
stances, vote as you please.
"!' fore conclude, 1 desire to say a
word or two on a subject which I would
let rest if I were not driven to it by the
harsh and unjust language used by cer
tain parties iu reference to my coming
hereto-night. I do not attack the whole
Northern people, to whom we owe a debt
of undying gratitude for liberal donations
in our behalf, many of whom have cast

The miseries which that robbery brought
upon the poor negro, no one except God
knows. Again, the negro does all the vo'
ting and the rallying, while others hold
all the ofiicies and grab the spoils. He
suffers the cruelties and wrongs, while
others escape aud live at ease at his ex
pense. Here in this county of over 2,000

' Republican Fears of Ohio. '
New York Herald, Wednesday.
A great deal of solicitude is mar.if.-. t:d
here among Republicans in regard to t'.e
campaign in Ohio. Among those .?bo
have watched its conduct there' c'. r e. t,
as well as what is done here, there '. a v
prehension lelt that everthing is rot i ll
right and that a. weakness preva Is
in the management of it in some impoit
8nt respects. In support of this it is r e
called by those most conversant with, tae
history of the thing that last year, when
Ohio had become the most important
State in the elections, there was some d;f
ficulty about providing for the expense,
and until near election day, the Chair
man of the State .Executive Committee
continued unrejnforccd with sudicient
funds for the campaign. Considerable
dissatisfaction with the National Execu
tive Committee grew out of this, and ex
Assistant Secretarj Cowan, of the Inte
rior Department, was charged with being
the obstacle to Ohio's turitly condition.
When the charge was made directly to
him ho acknowledged that he did not
think Ohio ought to have any more mon
ey, as she already had $10,000, aud when
Committee, thatwa sufficient to run the
camgaign. Upon being reminded that a
I change had taken nlaee in the
( her election, and that .Ohio had then the
. place of Pennsylvania as first in the lead,
he tor tue nrst time argued differently
and wa3 persuaded with difficulty that
his own state should have more money,
which was given, and Ohio was barely
carried by 7,000 majority, almost after
she had been given up by her friends.
Though it is claimed she has a Republic
can majority rangiug from 25,000 to 50,
000, it is feared by the Republicans that
some such thing is now at work, and
there is great danger the election will be
so close that the Democrats mny carry it
by a surprise. A movement is to be
made at ouce, to see that ample funds
are sent to meet all the requirements of a
full and energetic canvass und victory.
But there are not wanting persons who
oppose it becauss they are interested in
the other States more largely than they
are in Ohio. The National Executive
Committee are blamed with doing more
for Indiana than Ohio, and with having
signified to tjie leaders in the latter State
that she is regarded as strong enough to
help herself through, aud she meat.

A Voice From Tne Colored Hen
At t he t'rand Tilden ratification meoU
i:i a it liHi-my Thursday night, Andrew
J . Chambers, a colored mau from Ar-K.-nsas.
was one of the speakers. Tiie
following is nn abstract of his remarks :
"Jlesaid the South wanted a change.
Tho intelligent, thinking nogroes of tiie
S.mth wanted a change ; every poor
working man. wants a charge. What
h j said for his own race was, thU the
Republican party bail long enough
mado ceipital out of tho colored min.
In the .Sccth tnoy br-gan to understand
it. Tho truth of the polilieal situation
was drawing upon tbem at last. The
carpet-bagger and his government had
biH-n to them a greater curse than the
pests ot Egypt, The colored man wan
ted no more ot that side. Their trae
friends in the South were tho Southern
w hite men, and, not the Northern carpet-baggers
who had followed the army
cs stittlers and hftr.eers-on. There was
no real antagonism between the South
eru white men and the negroes All I
they wanted was to be let alone I
by tho cJrpet-bairgers and poli- j
tici ti;s. and the whites and blacks of
tho S luih would work out their destiny
toje'.Iiffr. Tio white race wra God's
chirlot of tire conveying civilization
ar d C'hristisnily to the world, and tbe
ic .elHgent black re.o were ie?dy f.nd
anxious to link their dnstiny with them.
1 i ey did not want antagonism. They
wm. red harinonv: thev wanted uni'v.
.Since tho Dpioocrats carried Arkansas j
not .1 negro had been murdered. What :
the Republic-ins wanted wes y utnotn
ootrr ;c-s. Thoy could make capital at
