REDUCING THE PUBLIC
How it is Done.
, President Grant has reduced
the)' public debt $200,000,000,"
says every Radical paper, .Has
he? i Let us ' see! The- public
f6cords do, hot show -how such
a. reduction. Instead! of .being
reduced, the'publio debts are be
ing Increased. ; Why do not the
Radical ' leaders tell the people
that Gtrant has so administered
his infernally, despotic laws in
ther South ,: that' the publttr debt
there,- as well as in the Northern
States, has increased frightfully,
under his administration? We
will show a specimen of the "re
duction 'of the public debt."
Publio ; debts embrace debts of
the States, as well as of the na
tional ' government. Grant's
political' scoundrels, who have
been inflicted upon the South,
have produced this sort of a re
duction, which fwe advise Joxes
and the other McArthur Ringites
to read to the half dozen and
dozen persons wlioVgo to hear
them talk pretty these, cool
nights till bed-time in the school
houses in different parts of the
' Alabama Owed IRfSmnoft In 1Wtft nnur.linU
bound for 138,000,000. Arkansas has Increased
her liabilities from 94,000,000 to noarly I!i0,000,000;
Florida from little or nothing to nearly $10,000,-
000: Georgia from flvn nr alv millions In nonrlv
50,000,000j however, 10.000.000 of fraudulent
bonds have been stopped lately; Louisiana from
110,000,000 to 141,000, 000 in I860 with a deficiency
of over 90,000.000 Inst year; North Carolina, from
say, 10,000,000 in 1801 to nearly 905,000.000: South
Carolina, irom, eav, so.uuu.uuu to ri,wu,VM;
TcnCnasee, from $aiS000,0u0 to 946,000,000; Texas
from nothing to about 16,000,000, with over 1.1,
000,000 of taxation this year, beside the enor
mous county taxation in all tho States and not
a dollar or inisior ine conieaornio -war nnnr.;
that was ail repudiated, and many of the Stales
have nothing to show for all the millions (m
posed by Stnto and county taxation upon theut.
: These figures show how the
public debt has been increased
instead of reduced, all since the
Grant party came into power.
The figures show the price of
carpet-bagism which Grant deals
largely in. The price is paid by
the people of the States named.
The Radical mode of "reducing
the .public debt" Is cutting off
one end and adding to the- other
Of course you wish the gov
ernment to be. administered hon
estly and cheaply. Then vote
against every man on the Grant
ticket, from Grant down to
Instead of calmly awaiting
the unbiased popular judgement,
this Administration is determin
ed to re-elect itself in spite of all
opposition. It uses the ma
chinery of the Goverment and
the money in the Treasury to ac
complish its object it has no
more right to employ them than
she oppositioii has. And they
all go pushing to and fro on their
personal errands.' Wilson is run
ning here, and the without in
sight into the meaning of this
struggle. , Grant exhibits him
self in dumb show from railroad
car . platforms and tavern win
dows. They are every one busy
with their work, and for the time
have abandoned their duties, and
riven over the claims of the
country to their official attention
-On Friday morning, Sept.
6th, the steamer Metis was run
into by a schooner, off the coast
of Rhode Island, and the vessel
sunk, with about , 23 persons.
There were about 155 persons
on board. It is also reported
that tho steamer Bienville, bound
from New York-, to Aspinwall,
burned at sea on the 16th of
August, and of, 127 . persons on
board, 34 unaccounted for. It

have been lost. ,, , , ,
