Miss Sue Underwood, at the Presbyterian
Church in this place not long since, was a
perfect gem of literary beauty, it was writ

and spoken in a clear, ringing and musical
voice, that was beautiful and irradiated as
with celestial sweetness, and perfectly elec
trified the large audience. Bhe proceeded
in a beautiful way to speak: of the good that
Temperance Societies have effected in the
country, and showed in a graphic style.
that intemperance is the fountain head of
all the misery entailed upon the land. The
anizel smile that nlaved innocently unon the
glowing cheek; the heaven descending rays
of prosperity upon the frugal, and the
thanksgiving of the pore in lieart, which
are enbalmed in eternal remembrance, all
bear the conclusive and satisfactory evi
dence of the utility of Temperance Societies.

of the Lenten post, which is observed in

Now this is too bad. How can I ever come

As this was not enough to satisfy his

Presidents, and Oeo. W. Blackburn and Joe
W. uordon were requested to act as Secreta

appointed to present suitable resolutions; as
these resolutions had already been doctored,
they were not long in coming forth. 'I he

T. u. 1-cains, capt. Ueo. Kinzer, Alvls Wil

.tir. tvuiiir auuresseu tne meetiua: in nis re
marks, he criticised the course that the
HEKALn axd Mail had pursued, which
were replied to. aud which we will phv
more ottentiOL t j hereafter. The resolutions
had but three points iu them; the endorse
ment of Hayes' Southern PoUcy, as exiness
ed, dec, the appointment of Key, and the
ratification of John C. Brown accepting a
position on tho Louisiana committee. The
resolutions wero well sugar-coated like
Hayes' - inaugural. When the resolutions
were put to the crowd for adoption, it is tlie
opinion of all that they were lost,exoept the
chairman and those who were very anxious
tor them to pass. The fair expression
of the white vote would have forever sealed
them as being a little too rough for them
to swallow; yet, the black sheep, which had,
no uouui. ueen Drougnt mere ior me pur
pose, voted lona and loud for tho adoption
of theiu; and as they cannot prove to be the
expression of tho opinion of tlie Democrats
of this county, we are not willing to let
them go as adopted. If a gang ol negroes,
although headed by a few while genllemuu
express tne opinion or tne Democratic i 'ar
ty of this county, we don't belong to it.
Col. Wade, lieu. Polk, Hon. 8. M. Arneil,

siKike ably in opposition to them. He told
me ueinocrais to beware, ana to stop auu
reflect well before they acted. When the
honest yeomanry of the country saw Mr,
Arneil, Col. Blackburn and Arcli Hughes,
the leaders of the Republican party of the
county, addressing a meeting called by good
Democrats, they left it, and went to the
court-house, and called for that old trusted
auu tried leader, Hon. W. C, wnit
thorne, whose: speech will bo found lu
another column. The people are true, and
will never be humbugged into endorsing
a fraudulent President, nor any of his acts,
until he gives up his stolen goods; a simple
division of them among the weak kneed is
not enough. From ail we cau learn, not
tweuty-flve white Democrat endorsed the
resoiutious. colonel cooper, wno is loved
and admired by every man lu the county,
tor ougnt to ue,) inroweu a iximosneu luto
the ranks of the "ratifiers." and made such
telling points against the folly, and crimi
nality of endorsing Hayes or Key, that
when he left, nearly all the Democrats went
wuii mm, leaving tne meeting composed
mainly of negroes. Some eood Demociats
and nice gentlemen, were iu the meeting at
first, Jiut they soon regretted the step they
had taken or looked like they did. When
tlie honest yeomen, unconnected with

nouse, tney literally ri-oi across tue- square
to tlie court-house, aud in a minute or two.
the room was so full that many were unable
to get in. Atone time, during the "ratifica
tion" meeting, the highest slate of exclle-
men t prevailed, resulting in a personal diffi
culty bet weeu Mr. Joseph H. Dew and Mr.
J. Marsh Mayes, the latter striking the
loriner for alleged language used. They
were separated before anything serious
could lollow. Mr. Comstock, bookseller, be
