A NIGHT ATTACK.
'I had but lately come out to Australia
from England to join Dick Merton, my
former; chuni and protector at a public
school, and my f:itr friend always. Onr
joint and very modest capital Lad been
invested in a league of land, bought for.an
old song on account of its defective title
(it was claimed, with some thousands be
"" sides, by the I'ampa " Indians, who . made
entry .. upon it j?we notice to quit by
brandishing lancet t us aud levied a dis
tress upon ur horses, and upon us too, iu
the most European and legal manner;) also
in a few sheep, having the lathy appear
ance, and almost the speed of greyhounds;
and lastly in the materials for our house,
of which, as we had onrselves been the
architects, builders, andclerss of the work,
we were not a little proud, It was built of
sun-baked bricks,, and consisted of one
tolerably large room, with a fiat.roof and
parapet," accessible from theinside by
means ot a ladder. &rouna it, at aooui
thirty yards' distance, we bad dug a deep
dry ditch, crossed by a drawbridge, and
intended as a protection against surprise
bv our enternming neighbors the Indians.
The latter dusky gentlemen had hitherto
Denaveu Ulfliiwuea kiy iuuvu m Dutu,
and had confined their throat-cutting pro
pensities to certain stray sheep, instead ol
gratifying them at the expense of the own
ers. But ugly tales were still told of their
doings round about us of white men ta
ken whilst riding in sight of home, and
tortured; of cattle driven off, and sheep
speared in very wantonness of mischief
which were not reassuring, and which
caused us to keep a particularly sharp look
out, especially when, as now, the Indian
moon (their favorite time of attack) gave
light enough to point the way to plunder,
but not to guide the aim of the defenders.
; - Dick Merton, changed indeed since the
das when his word was taw k among a se
lect circle of Pall Mall dandies, lounged up
to where I was standing. His costume was
simple in the extreme, and consisted mere
ly of a sufficiently aged pair of leather un
mentionables, and a red flannel shirt the
whele being surmounted and relieved by a
very long black beard, and a very short but
equally black pipe; but through rough at
tire and surroundings, the indefinable je
ne sais quoi of gentility was as clearly re
cognizable as when he Was sowing his rath
er extensive crop of wild oats, upon home
soil, and "before that memorable Derby
which induced him, after settling with
duns of every description, from a fashion
able tradesman to "honorable" welchers,
to embark himself and the leavings of his
property, and dwell among sheep and sav

Now, horses were our sorest safeguards
against ' surprise." Dogs we had too, but
they roused us up bo frequently by barking
at nothing mora formidable than a stray
deer or fox, that reminded of the gentle
man whose amusement it was to cry
"Wolf !" we ' lost all faith iu them; but
our little, half-wild Tampa horses had a
truer instinct, - and their warnings, given
by stamping upon the ground, were not to
be disregarded with satety. - - -.

Upon this we learned, after much cross
questioning, that they had been to buy
horses ("To steal them, more likely," in
terjected Dick) at the station of a rich
Spaniard, Don liamon Garcia, who lived
about four leagues from us; aud that when

ground, and had a view of tUe house, they

Juke Viola, I "lacked something of a man"
I set about our preparations with agood
show of self-possesKiou.
The natives both the late arrivals and
our own two men, who had often boasted
of what they meant to do and had already
done in :he way of fighting Indians were
quite useless.' They leaought as pitoous
ly to flee, and so hampered us that Dick's
patience vaporated, and haviug lavished
a series of hearty kicks among them, he
oonsi'med them forcibly to nether and
more'eultry regions, kindly offering horses
for that or any other, journey they might
wish to make. They dare not, however,
ride away even from the coming danger;
and presently, - to our great relief and de
light, we saw them scramble through the
ditch, and into onr sohtaiy field ol maize,
where, as we learund afterwards, they lay
concealed, with their, faces buried in the
ground, like ostriches, until the storm
should blow over.

Nothing is so daunting as suspense to a
young campaigner, and I felt my heart
thumpiDg against my ribs with excitement
and a sort of nervous, dread that I should
not play a man's part in the struggle we
expected. Uut Dick s voice, calm, low,
ana with a slight drawl in it. reassured me.
"Now look here, Alfred, my boy," he
said; "if we have to fight, keep cool, and
do as I tell you. Beach your hand ovei

lite that. Now, remember to aim steadily,
as though you were winning cup in the

these beggars have only a few muskets and
pistols in the shape of firearms, they can
shoot pretty straight if you stand still

"There's something dark on the ground
near the corral, I answered; "it seems
nearer than it was."
"An Indian, sure enough, and the ball's
going to commence." As he said this,
Dick's rifle rung out in the silence of the
night, and I saw a splinter fly white in the
moonlight, about a foot above the dark ob
ject which thereupoa started up with a
cry. and fled. Then we heard the gallop
ing of horses, and about one ' hundred In
dians rode into view, and, breaking into
twos and threes, circled round us within
shot waving spears and shouting as
though the whole company of fallen angels
had met to lament their change of circum
"Don't shoot! This is all a feint" And
my superior's warning came just in time,
for a dusky cloud of men sprung out from
the ditch (how they could have got in
without our having observed them, was
puzzling to me. ) and rushed, lance in hand,
against the door. Well for us that its
fastenings were secure,, and that we had
net been tempted to throw away shots by
the first demonstration. Bang! bang! went
our rifles, and I saw with a devilish feeling
of pleasure that the man I had covered fell
back with a hoarse yell.
"Don't hurry, but in with your cart

together. This was too much for them
they halted, wavered one moment and
then disappeared as if by magic our rapid

to hear the bullets from the cavalry out

The moon was now nearly over, but that
was not so much against us, the night be
ing clear and starlight enough to see a
man at ten paces. We could hear the
trampling of horses' feet and guttural
sounds of talking, and guessed that a coun
cil of war was being held. Suddenly a
spark appeared about two hundred yards
rom the house for they had fired our hay
stack and grew rapidly into a flame.
Brighter and brighter it became, and lit up
the 6sene which was one of those men do
not easily forget as with the glare of the
noonday sun. ..
Grouped round the flame, and out of

I turned with astonishment ; but the sick

excitement and rage.
A nearly naked Indian was boldly ad
vancing towards tl and beariug before
him a burden, which c-ffoctually secured,
as he meant it to do, his immunity from
our shots. r '
A beautiful white girl of about seventeen
was lying helpless in his arms. Her hands
were bound behind her back, and masses
of coal-black hair encircled a face showing
deadly terror and horror in every feature,
and drooped nearly to the ground over the
Bivage's arm. Her dress, torn from one
white shoulder, showed how hard had been
the first ineffectual struggle against her
As the Indian crossed the ditch (they
bad out the rope which held up the draw
bridge in the first attack) with his burden,
Dick with a deep groan recognized her.
"It is Rosita, Don Ramon's daughter," he
broke ont "I love her, Alfred, and will
save her or die with her. Listen !" he con
tinued knrriedly. "This rascal has come
t make some proposal to us. Keep your
eye on him ; and the moment yon get a fair
chance, fire at him. If you kill her, it is
the better fate. When I hear the shot, I
will throw open the window (which I can
do mere easily than the door, ) and try for
a rescue. But, for Heaven's sake, don't
leave the roof; our only hope is in your
being able to keep off the others, who will
rush from, the ditch. Good-bye,"
- And he was down the ladder before I
could speak, leaving his hat cunningly ad
justed above the parapet Poor Dick! all
his coolness and sang-froid had vanished
now! -1 myself was not in a pleasant predi
cament To carry out his half mad scheme
involved my running a terrible risk of
shooting my friend's sweetheart which at
any other time would have appeared im
possible; but when 1 read the agony and
loathinc in the poor girl's eyes, I braced
inv nertes, set my teeth, laid my rifle ready
and inwardly swore that no trembling of
my hand should mar her deliverance.
. And now the savage, a truculent-looking
brute, raised his voice, and demanded i
broken Spanish a surrender. He threaten
ed us with all the tortures his ingenious
fraternity are so justly proud of having
invented, in case of obstinacy, and bid us
look upon his captive, for that she, too,
should buffer for us. As he said this, he
grasped the girl's hair brutally, and raised
her head. With a sudden spring of pain
and fright, eho threw herself out his arms,
and fell to the ground. His time and mine
had come. As he stooped, my bullet laid
him dead by the side of his intended vic
tim. Dick made his rush from the win
dow, and the Indians theirs from the ditch.
as he had predicted; but as Rosita was
rather nearer to the house than the ditch,
he managed to reaeh ln-r first &ud was re

all depended upon me. My first shot.aim-

the wearer; and as the savage drew back
for a cooler and surer thrust I had the in
expressible pleasure of lodging a bullet in
his body, which effectually prevented any
further lanee-exercise from him.
Then I heard a heavy fall in the room
below; Dick had thrown his burden clean
through the open window, at the risk of
breaking a limb, and turning, found him
self engaged hand to bund with a dozen In
dians. He set his back against the wall,
and drew his revolver with his right band,

through bis left arm; but his and my re

drag himself through the window, and
then fainted awav from loss of blood and
exhaustion; and when I ran down the lad
der to make fast the window again, I found
him comfortably reclining with his head in
Rosita 's lap, the latter having been stun
ned by her unceremonious entry. But I
could not stay to help here; my post was
on the roof. I hurried up the ladder, no
ticing for the first tinio that I had myself
sunred in the scrimmage to the extent of
a slight flesh-wound from a bullet The
light was over. Throughout the remainder
of the night the Indians lingered about
and stole most of the horses and some
sheep, but they had hot pluck again to en
counter the deadly breech-loaders. Sel
dom, indeed, had such a severe lesson been
taught them; and when the glorious sun
rose (never sight more welcome,) we saw
them ride beaten off the field, bearing with
them five of the slain; six other corpses
were lying in front of the window, where
the fiercest struggle had been, and two
more were afterwards found, who had
crawled into the ditch like wild animal to
We learned from the pretty Rosita, whose
gratitude was most touching, that she had
been captured whilst walking in the orange
garden near her father's house, a short time

I think Dick, however, was of a different
opinion; t all events, he has always seem

persuaded her to make him.

Don Ramon's estancia, that worthy old
gentleman having departed this life short
ly after their marriage. I, too, am with
them as a partner in the land, flocks, and
herds, of which we have a goodly quant

little Dicks and Rositaa ask me, as they in
variably do of an evening, to tell them a
story, I know that nothing less will content

Red Riding Hood.
Charles Hugo tells the following fairy
story about the plebiscite: There was once
in the Middle Ages a young lad named
Universal Suffrage. As he was a Republi
can, he was generally called Little Red
Chaperon. One day the State had brought
a plebiscite on the tapis, and his adoptive
father said to him: "Pray, go and look
how your grandmother liberty is, and bring
her your vote in this small butter jar."
Little Red Chaperon started immediately
for his grandmother's house. When he
came through the forest of Bondy, he met
old Coup dC Etat, who asked him where he
was going. The poor boy, who did not
know that it was dangerous to stop on the
road and to listen to wolves, said to him:
"I am going to visit my grandmother, and
bring her my vote in this small butter jar."
"Very well," said the wolf, "I shall ac
company you and visit her too." Now, the
wolf had devoured the grandmother eight
een years ago. He Lurried on so as to
reach -the place in advance of Little Red
Chaperon. Upon his arrival there, he
went to bed aud waited there for the little
one who shortly afterward rapped at the
door and stepped in. Little Chaperon was
greatly surprised to find his grandmother
iu such tll&halille, and said to her: "But
grandmother, you really have very large
and strong arms." "In order to be better
able to protect society from anarchy, my
child." "Grandmother, you have also very
big legs." "In order to be better able to
escape from Mexico, my child." "Grand
mother, you have very large eyea" "In
order to be better able to verify Hauss
man's accounts." "Grandmother, you have
very large teeth." "In order to bo better

Flax Culture and Threshing.
growing aa interest of
magnitude in some parts of tho country, and
is extending to new sections. Nearly a mil
lion acres were grown in the interior states
last year (1309). Its culture is found profit
able and is likely to be greatly stimulated,
now that there is a market not only ftr the
seed, but for the fibre, and also an economi
cal method of threshing aud saving the seed.
In addition to numerous oil nulls which con
sume the seed at remunerative prices, many

one to three each. One impediment to flax
culture heretofore has been the incapacity
of ordinary threading machines to thresh it
economically, owing to the tendency of the
hber or tow to c&tcii and wind on everything
it cornea in contact with. This difficulty,
however, seems to bo overcome bv the Ault
man A Taylor Threnherf made at "Mam-Hold,
Ohio, which is said to handle flax with as
little trouble a any other frrain. It appears
that the same features which give this thresh
er an advantage in wet and bad conditioned
wheat, oats, etc., viz., the entire absence of
revolving shafts, beaters, pickers, raddles
and rollers from the straw pastian, and the
peculiar and effective method employed to
thoroughly shake the grain aud need out of
the straw enable it to take through the
hitherto troublesome flax tow without

Tubing as a Guard foe Interfering
Horses. A writer iu one of our exchanges,
gives two methods of applying the tubing
as follows: The tubing or hose should be
of one-half to three-quarter inch caliber.
If you wish to protect the joint with a
guard, cut the hose the proper length to go
around the limb above the joint and run a
round strap through the hose, with buckle
at one end. . Properly fitted this will stay
and not cramp the limb or injure the pkin.
a he tube runs on the strap when the hoof
strikes it Always remove the guard when
the horse enters the stable, and bathe with
cold water. .
Another manner for applying the guard
is to cut the gum tube a little longer than
in the other way, making it reach round
the hoof of the limb that strikes, less aoout
two inches. . Then have the harness maker
sew a small strap in one end of the tube,
and a strap with buckle in the other. Then
fit the guard around the hoof of the limb
that strikes, just below the hair. The gum
will stretch sufficient to clasp the hoof
tightly, if it is properly adjusted, it will
neither be lost nor slip from its place, ex
cept by the horse stepping in deep muddy
roads, when it will some times slip up but
will not be lost and can be re-adjusted.
When the hoof so armed strikes the joint
of the opposite limb the rubber gives and
the skin is not broken, the hair even is not
cut off, and the creature and the driver, if
a horseman and of sensitive nature, escape
the pain that always affects them both when
the horse is hopping on three legs from

Prkvent Potatoes Blorwimfng. A dis-

testing the influence of flowering upon the
yield of potatoes, and the results have been
so marked and conclusive that he recom

of the potato; that tne tiuas ue removea
as soon as possible after they appear, in
order to prevent the fixing of the nourish

with any sickle or other sharp instrument,
since the tops of the potatoes would be
liable to be injured thereby.

the President led the way to the grand

The table was covered with flowers and all

FASHIONABLE JEWELRY. New Patterns in Locke's-Morning
Collar Pins, &c.,&c.
From the earliest ages of the past the
taste for precious gems and jewels has ex
isted in every class of society and among
all nations. The barbaric tribes conquered
by the Greeks and Romans were the source
from which they received elegant patterns
fall of golden beauties. Iu the East wealth
was estimated.by the number of ornaments
and precionsstones a person possessed.
Some ancient writers even assert that Noah
during his sojourn in the Ark, had
no other light but the glimmer of
his diamonds. From the earliest period
the Hindoos have been exceedingly i kill
ful in the fabrication of all ornaments;
their sacred temples were filled with figures
of the most costly metals, the material em
ployed being worthy of the beautiful ideal
embodied. No law of limitation confined
the artist to certain forms; but genius was
left free to express itself, proving its own
divinity in the creation of divine forms. In
the present age the French possess this
power, and articles of their manufacture
have a certain peculiar charm for fashiona
ble society, which does its utmost to make
extravagance popular. In briefly describ
ing some of the latest designs offered at
onr leading houses, it will be noticed that
high priced jewelry seems most in favor
ami the designs cannot be too bizarre.
There are many who prefer a simple
pendant without a locket although whn
worn on the neck to one can tell the defer
ence. A beautiful cut head from the an
tique, iu amethyst mounted in dead gold,
was marked at $60; a black onyx with white
figure, set in open work gold with pearl
pendant $100; a dove flying through a
hoop encrusted with diamonds, was valued
at $150. The gem of all these novelties
was a lily of frosted gold raised upon a
concave surface of frosted gold, the blos
soms being formed of large diamonds.
Kew patterns in lockets are constantly
appearing, we notice very large ones fo
white onyx, the centre ornament a car
buncle surrounded by small brilliants, with
four emerald points outside. This style !
comes from Eugland, but is more substan
tial than beautiful, and the same descrip
tion may be applied to those or plain goUl,
with five oriental onyxes upon the case.
An elegant form is the triangular with
swinging cameos in the centre; from the
apex hangs three small balls of burnished
gold. Another pretty pattern was of etrus
cau gold with centre ot torquoise blno en
circling a solitaire, the catch and pendant
being white enamel; the design represented
a vase of fine blue enamel outlines, filled
with roses formed of diamonds with sap
phire centre; leaves of green enamel The
reverse was simply a painting of a frog
among green rushes. The price ot this
bijou was $190 in gold.
The Japanese enamel, with figures of
dragons or birds with crests of inlaid
stones, are in favor. Some are cased so as
to show the enamel design upon the inte
rior also; the prevailing colors are blue,
green aud yellow. The heart shaped lock
ets with cases of plain blue or black en
amel, ornamented with inlaid designs of
gold, or various stones, as diamonds, rubies
or pearls, meet with a steady sale among
onr leading houses.
In nrorning pins we notice a great va
riety of blue enamel bets with pearl centres
and etruscan gold fringe pendants. They
will be much worn with white pique break
fast robes at the various watering
places, both on account of their neat
ness and moderate cost The conntless
imitatious of ball and chain ear-rings in
cheap French jet have caused that grace
ful, becoming style to be entirely discard
ed by the htuil ton. For the sea-side or
yachting parties, a very unique, appropri
ate brooch and ear-rings have been import
ed. The pin represents a lile-buoy, encir
cling it is a fine rope, pendent are two
heavy cable chains with large links, at
tached to their ends are a fender and an
chor. The earrings are simply the chains
and ornaments, fastened close to the ear.
This pattern is extiemely pretty and
catches the eye from its great novelty.
Another .tasty form is the Grecian lyre pat
tern with small brilliants encircling the
A pen-holder in the form of a qnill made

Lice and gilt sticks. It is very fashionable
of late to have a monogram in gold printed
on the face in lien of painted designs of
flowers upon the silk.
One of the mt st unique designs for a col
lar pin was an oval shell carved from onyx,
at each convolution a diamond star; while
in the concave centre of the shell rested a
bee with an emerald body, diamond wings,
and ruby head. The large square cuff but
tons for gentlemen are finding much favor
among the best class of customers. The
cameos, cut from jaspar or cornelian, are
most saleable at moderate prices. Some of
the "crystal cut" goods display very fine
workmanship; a favorite set represented a
race-horse to a sulky with driver seated,
while the studs were th6 head of a Scotch
terrier in one and a rat-and-tan in the
other, with a dead gold mounting in the
form of a strap, diamond buckle. I he
modu of making this peculiar line of goods
renders them very expensive. After the
crystal has been ground to a couvex form,
the design is cut in the flat surface of the
under side, then painted in colors. It will
be seen that the least slip of the engraving
toot or any flaw in the crystal ruins the
entire thing, as every detect is highly mag
nified. There is a futile effort being made
to introduce buttons for gentlemen's gar
ments with raised gold monograms to
match tltA enamelled sleeve buttons and
monogramio shirt studs. They are made
down East at a factory of tortoise shell
jewelry, which of late commands quite a
sale among a certain ciass oi customers.

fhe Democratic Tarty and the J?f zro.
The following article on negro suffrage is
irom me nrst number or the Chicago Dem
ocrat the tew democratic paper recently
started in Chicago, the subscription price
of which is $2 per year, and $1.50 to clbs
or twenty or more.
Those persons, "hanging upon the veee'
of the democratic party, who are makint?
efforts to propitiate the negro element en
franchised by the i uteenth amendment are
niafciDg saonnces or self-respect and diimitv.
which can scarcely fail to disgust the ele
ment which they are seeking to court with.
out seonring the gratitude or respect of the
party which they are professing to serve.
The history of the democratio party on the
question oi negro sun rage, shows it to have
been united aud persistent in its opposition
to negro suffrage, in every shape in which
it was presented. . This history the demo
cratic party can neither conceal or reverse,
and wa very much mistake the sentiment
of the party, if there is any general desire
to conceal or reverse it Candor requires
the further statement that the democratio
party has not only opposed negro suffrage
iu the past but if it were possible to so
back one year or ten and have this contro
versy over again, the democratio partv.
with all the experience of to-day before its
eyes, would again oppose, and exert all its
influence to prevent a consummation
which all true democrats and a large num
ber of republicans abhor. For the demo
cratic party to make any overtures to the ne
gro vote under snch circumstance j. would re
quire a most shameful confession of insin
cerity and cowardice in the past which but
few individuals in the democratio party are
prepared to maxe.
the democratic party opposed negro su-
rage, simply because it believed the negro,
as a class, did not possess either the in
telligence or the experience to wield the
ballot because it believed that placiog the
ballot in his hands was a measure detri
mental to the interests of the country, in
consequence of the ease with which de
signing men might make use of him, and
because negro suffrage might be fraught
with consequences of a very dangerous
character, the extent of which could not
be foreseen. The Fifteenth amendment
did not increase the capacity of the negro
id the slightest degree, or add anything
to his intelligence or experience. What
the negro was the day that amendment
was proposed, he remained the day
after it was claimed to have been ratified.
The fifteenth amendment bo far from re
moving the objections of the democratio
party to negro suffrage, simply gives these
objections additional force, by opening the
door to the evil consequences of negro
suffrage which the democratic party has al
ways foreseen and predicted. One of the
principal objections of the democratio par
ty to negro suffrage has been, that the
small average capacity of the negro would
enable designing men to control and use
him, and that if enfranchised, dis
honest and incapable men might
be able, through the agency of the
negro vote, to retain themselves in
power to the great detriment of the conn-'
try. The negre in the southern states has
enjoyed the elective franchise almost since
the close of the war, and the manner in
which he has exercised it shows that the
fears of the democratic paaty that be would
prove a mere blind instrument in the hands
of men of a higher grade of intelligence
(but perhaps, of. lower grade of integri
ty), were well founded. Without going
into any discussion as to the merits of the
policies which have received the support of
the negro vote of the south, the predic
tions of the democratic party have been
verified by the fact that a few adventurers
from the aorth, men without means and
witlout character, strangers to the
onntry and its inhabitants, and ignore aut
of sad indifferent to the necessilies
and iuterests of the southern people were
able to migrate to the southern status, and
so far, secure the control of the negro vote,
as to place themselves in posession of all
the state governments getting themselves
elected governors and members of the leg
islature or selected to represent the south
ern states in the lederal congress, and ex
cluding representative members ot the
bona file white residents of the states from
all official positions. me lact
that the negro is as likely to
be influenced by good counsels as he is by
ba l and that he may in a year or two more,
desert his present radical friends and be
controlled altogether by the democratic
party of the states in which he resides, does
not alter the case in the least For, if the
negro of the south concludes to vote the
democratio ticket, which is not at all un
likely, it will not be because he has any
conception of democratio principles, but
simply because of his intense susceptibili
ty to the influence of others, and a necessi
ty of his nature, which he feels and com
prehends fully, to have some one on whom
he can rely lor direction.
With the division of sentiment and con-
flictiug interests prevailing among the
whites, the negro vote is sufficiently large to
control and shape the policy and destiny of
the whele country. And just as the demo
eiatio party predicted, this- element has
Rhown itself, in the sections where it had
been tried, so destitute of the capacity for
independent thought and action, that it is
necessarily mere puay in the hands or some-
body. And it has been through the votes of
members of Congress selected by this pliable
and unthinking element , that the country
has been cursed by many of the oppres
sive and unwise laws that now find a place
upon the statute books. And a large
measure of the corruption and extravagance
which prevails in all departments of the
government can be properly imputed to
the same element
Experience having so far justified the
wisdom and patriotism ot the democratio
pasty in opposing negro suffrage in the
past we fail to nee how any true democrat
can urge that the democratic party shall
ignore its history and traditions, and hum
ble itself at the feet of the negro, with a
confession of its errors and ait expression
of its contrition.
While the adoption of th Fifteenth
amendment has added n to the
caiiacity of the negro, or changed his na
ture in the least it has added no new
principle to the democratio faitb.or created
a Deccstv for the abandonment or modifi-
catiou ol y principles we have advocated
in the pas:. The opposition of the demo
crats pur'y to negro suffrage, was not an op
position to continue until the ratification o!
a Fifteenth amendment but anopposition to
continue until the negro had demonstrated
the possession of sufficient virtue and ca
pacity to entitle him to the elective fran
chise. When he demonstrates the posses
sion of thse qualities, it will be time
enough to consider the propriety of tho
democratic party eoufessixig negro tin Stage
to be safe and desirable. . J. lie democratic
party will never admit that the ratification
of the Fifteenth amendment was secured
in a fair and constitutional manner; it will
never withdraw its U derations, that the
coercion of the Southern States into the
ratification of this amendment was an act
of usurpation, outrage and revolution;
and it will never admit that an amend
ment to the constitution secured by
coercion, duress or intimidation, has any
further legal force and effect than the cir
cumstances of each particular case may
promptit to concede, a til I, the democratic
party is, in no sense, a reactionary party
and the negroes h ving been generally ad
milled to the exercise of the right ot aul
trage under this so called amendment to
the constitution, and the democratic party
in no sense made responsible for any of the
evil consequences which may ensue, there
is a general willingness, upon the part of
the d. mocratie party, to let matters take
their course, and Bee what the results will
be. And in contemplation of the negro as
a voter, the democratio party will be dis
posed to accord tothe negro just that po
sition which he shall show himself entitled
to. And if, in the coming yean, he shall
so far improve, as to exercise the right of
suffrage with the same degree of intelli
gence as the white race, the democratio
party may be Tilling to defend him in the
exercise of that right The position of th
