K. A. Burnett,
Doau l a eeritlment not to too appalled,
corrupted or compromise. It know no bauencss,
cower to no danger, oppremi no weakness. Fear
loss, generous ind hnmanc, It rebuke the arroguut,
cherlf lie honor, and sympathise with the humble,
It ask nothing bnt what It concedes; it concede
nothing but what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, it l the sole conservative of liberty, la
bored property. It I tho cntlmeut or freedom,
of equal obligation. It I tho law of nature per
ad!ts the law of the land. Tho stupid, the del
fish, the base In spirit may denounce It a a vulgar
thing; but in the history of our race tho Demo
cratic principle ha developed nud illustrated tho
hisbest moral and Intellectual attribute of our
natarc. Yes, this 1 a noblo, mignaulmous, a sub
lime sentiment, which expand our affections, eu-
arjjes the circle of our sympathies aud elevate the
onl of man until, claiming an equality with tho
best, he rejects a unworthy of hw dignity any po
litical '.mmnnitle over the humblest of his fellows.
Ye, It is an ennobling principle; aud may that
pirlt which animated our father In the Revolution
ry contoM for It establishment continue to ani
mute as, their sons, In tho impending stmsalo for
it preservation." WILLIAM ALLEN.
THE NEW PARTY.
Hubert G. Ingersoll having been both
Democrat and He-publican, and finding his
"political affinity" in. neither party, has
joined James Parton, Parker Pillsbury, 13.
F. Underwood, J. P. Mcndum, Horace
Seaver, and other distinguished Lilwalists
of the couutry, in a call for a convention,
the object of which is tho formation of a
new political party. The creed of the new
party is indicated below :
"All whobelicvo that citizens should not
be discriminated against because of their
religious or irreligious opinions that ma
jorities should not only respect bat protect
tho minorities and that government should
neither abolish nor Bupport any form of re
ligion in any maimer, neither directly by
the payment of money nor indirectly by ex
emption from tax.
All who believe that tho courts should
alike be open to all ; that all should be al
lowed to testify for the protection of their
own rights, and thoBO of others, whether
they believe in any myth to swear by or
not ; that the punishment of heresy and
blasphemy should bo left to God, tiio only
being supposed to be injured, and that all
should be allowed liberty of thought, the
right to publish their opinions and conclu
sions, and disseminate tho sumo us they
.may see proper upon all questions touching
the welfare of mankind.
All who believe that virtue is not based
upon ignorance, but upon intelligence; that
there is no saving power iu sham or super
stition; that tlic living and present are of
more importance than tho dead and past;
that all should bo allowed to do its they
please on every day of the week, including
Sunday, provided they do not in any way
interfere with the rights of others, aud that
one-seventh of the timo does not belong ex
clusively to Christians.
All who belicvo that science, and not
superstition, should be taught in tho public
schools; that all touchers should bo allowed
to iuveHigiito for themselves, and that tho
demonstrations of to-day are of more value
lhan tho theories of tho undents.
All who believe that the Uuited Stales
should protect citizen ut homo us well us
broad; that every voter should bo pro
teck'd in his right to cast tho ballot ot his
choice, and that education should bo uni
crsal. And finally, all who are willing to accord
to others tho r-hts they claim fur them
m lvcs, are most cordially Invited to attend
I his convention,"
THE EXODUS; ITS CAUSE AND CURE
The causes that aro working such wide;
spread dissatisfaction among the negroes ot
the South, aro so well, so candidly and tru
ly stated by the editor of tho New Orleans
Times that wc transfer his article almost en
tire, to the columns of tho Bulletin. It
will rqay perusal by any ono who wouui
be iulormed of tho influences that ara about
to spring a great crisis iu tho afluirs of
Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi, if not
in the affairs of the entire South. The
Times says :
"The South lias tried all sorts of labor,
Chinese, Irish, German. But the planting
interests have already arrived at the con
clusion that the men wo want wc already
have, and that steps should be taken by
our agriculturists to satisfy this clement to
the extent that they will remain quietly on
the plantations, and cultivate them ns ot
Wc opine that there is some other reason
besides the work of political emmissaries,
who have been reported traveling around
the country, demoralizing the laborers aud
causing them to leave their homes. They
do not as a general thing complain of ill
treatment. Bull-dozing has been
charged upon tho population of
several parishes iu the State,
but ou investigating them, they, in nearly
every instauec, have proved groundless.
They generally receive more for their labor
aud have better opportunities to acquire in
dependence than a corresponding class
North nnd West.
As a geueral thing they are well clothed,
well fed, have good houses, garden spots,
and possess a greater degree of freedom of
action than the planter himself. Then why
this dissatisfaction ?
Tho true solution of this exodus, and its
demoralizing effects, will be found in the
pernicious system of advancing money and
provisions on the growing crop. We arc
asked, how does this effect the negro? Wo
reply: The planter, having shipped his
last bale of cotton, comes to the city
for a liual statement of his ac
count, receives "his balance, and looks
around him for the purpose of negotiating
an advance for the coining season. If his
account has been satisfactory, his crop good,
a balance of some magnitude to his credit,
ho will have no difficulty. If on the con
trary, worms, drouth, wet seasons or other
misfortunes leave a balance on the wrong
side of the ledger, lie may, and he may not
bo booked for a further advance. He is,

an attendance for a week or two before a
fiual decision is arrived at; when it is made,
he generally finds.it so small that he is
cramped and ground down for the year, his
family are obliged to forego all else except
the very commonest necessaries of life; he
stints his labor, compels them to put up
with bacon aud meal, simply because he
cannot help himself
The laborer in his ignorance does not
heed this changed condition of affairs. Ole
marster has been to him the bank from
whence iu times of prosperity he drew per
cnniel supplies, lie does not understand
this change, becomes dissatMied and pro
poses to work o portion of land upon his
own, responsibility, but in order to do this
he must have concessions. First, the piece
of land, say twenty acres. Second, a mule,
and implements, which isgenerally charged
to him at their full value. Next he must
have provisions. All of this to come out of
Naturally indulgent when left to him
self, the crop is neglected at a critical
period, a half crop is the natural conse
