SOLILOQUY OF A RADICAL
I'M a Kadioal I Radioall Radioall
Lot mo see I used to bo a Whig.
Now, I loved that good old party. How
wo battled for out ohampion Clay. Bat
the Looofodos were loo n amorous for us.
Yet I rather liked our opponents after
all. Neighbor Brown and I after tho
elootion was ovor were as good friends as
ever, when now we are ehemios the whole
year round. I suppose he will never for
give mo for calling him A Copperhead.
Well, I guess it was wrong, lie is sin
ooro. Ho olaimed that if Linooln were
elootod there would be i bloody war and
an end to the Union. His predictions
were too true. Yet he was aggravating)
tr nr.j.ri i .
during tno war. ue bwubu at x ruaiueui
Llnooln's 'war necessities,' and asserted
that he had no more right to violalo tho
Constitution than Jeff, Davis had. Well,
that was bis opinion,, andaa the Presu
dent had taken an oath to maimtaiii that
instrument, there was a good show of
argument why he should not determine
when the necessity existed which justi
tied him in violating, it. But it appears
now 'the President isn't io tnuoh the
Government as he was. T. guess I have
wronued NeiKhbor Brown, I will prav
over the matter aod'if I am oonvinoed,
will aBk pardon, and we will be friends

I o.n hear hie bitter denunciations of

But he ia dead. Still I rovere his mem-
ory, and sometimes feel that the Whig
party ought to have adhered to thoso
principles. Oh I but those were nrnnd
days for me. I was a member of a par
ty I was proud of, and our leaders ere

Uut then he was no radical either. I
wonder how I oamoto beaRadioal? Wo

Washington, and a host of others, and I
find that not asinglo one of them were

of thorn. But for some cause the old
Whig party was abandoned, 1 bad boon
used to battling the old Domooratio pari
ty, and naturally took sides against
them. I was always opposod to slavery
ia principle, bat I detested these, rant
ing, meddlesomo Abolitionists.
So I really wondorhow I came to be
a Radical. During the war I was a bit-
tor war man, it is true. I lost two noble
sons. They were averse to the war, but
I preaohed until they consented to make
the sacrifice. Poor boys 1 I never saw
them again. The old farm ia neglected.
My poor wife is disconsolate ,.My
daughter will never forgot those terrible

I wonder how I came to be a Radical?

His days are almost numbored, too. Let

that would have been when I used to be
Whig. Tom and I eoine to the elec
tion together. I Tom voting with mo.
Really, I can hardly see how all this
Andyotl'm a Radical.
I nsed to argue with ncurhbor Brown
that I was a follower of Washington,
Jaokson and Jefferson. . I guess I oould
hardly olaim that now.
Uut I have followed somebody or I
wouldn't be a Radical, Let me see. I
voted for Fremont, but as he was. defeat
ed and has never been a party loader
since, I did not follow him. Then I
votod for Linooln. . I mast have followed
him. But , tho Radicals abused him.
He could not been of. them.
They say now that Mr. Linooln was a
Radioal. I can't think so. 1 hoard his
speech at Columbus in September, 1859,
and heard him Bay : 'I am not or ever
have been" in favor of making voters or
Jurora of Negroes, nor of qualifying
them to hold ofEoa or intermarrying with
White people; and I will say In addic
tion to this that there is a physioal diN
fcrenee betweon the white and blaok
races which I believe will forever forbid
the two races living together on terms of
sooial and political equality.'
Now. that looks aensibU. At least
when neighbor Brown used to accuse me
ofboing in favor of Negro Suffrage, I
usod to deny it and asserted if the lit
publican party ever adopted that as
plank in their platform, I would desert
the party and vote with him. .
But I'm a Radioal, and I reokon I must

Our party should' not be held accounta

true ;: but they managed ta keop behind

If I'm a Radioal, I am in favor of that.
uut i must oonBider a Iittlo. If Necra
Suffrage was right I wonder how the
good and true men who controlled our
affairs until recently failed to see it? I
wonder how it. happened that nono of
them discovered it?" Not even Dr..
Franklin, with all his wise savings, ever
said it. I wonder why some of the Red..
icals did not oorreot Mr. Lincoln's error
when he opposod it?.
1 must reflect upon this matter-, and" iE
I'm wrong, I muBt tret right. I will talk
with neighbor Brown again. He has.

can throw some light upon the eubjeot.
