FWDAT, JAN. 10, 1868.
If there ever was a time in our hie
torjrwliud unanimity of action on
the part of the friend of conntitution
al liberty, was an absolute necessity,
that time is now. The straggle for
ascendancy in the governnicnt is be
tween the supporters of nenrpation
and tyraoL'y, on the one side, and on
the other, by the supporters of the
Constitution and tho rights pertain
ing, under it, to States and individu
al!!. j Tho latter are known as demo-
cruu in me norm, wuiiat in tne
South, Koine call themselves Conscr
vatives and others, Independents.
This is all wrong. Let us fight under
a common flag, leaving wiuor fcbades
of difference, for future adjustment
If we would succeed there must be
but two parties to the corf'.ost, and
xince me uormern uomocratB Have
organir-ed under thoir original name,
and won victories of incalculable
value to tho South, the southern peo
ple ought to organize under the same,
unci every one of the opposition en
roll himself under the banner of the
allies who not only tender their aid.
but upon whom tuuut full the weight
of tho conflict.
Conservatives, in harmony with
the name, must bo for conserving ihe
existing state of things, negro su
premacy, military dospoti.sm and ev
ery otho Radical innovation upon the
original character of tho government.
Independents, tobe consistent, cau act
with neither party, and taking no de
cisive stand, fritter away their influ
ence and strength, giving no aid to
those they most favor and a sort of
negative support to those for whose
ilefeul they profess to bo anxious
tbey are drones in the great opposi
tion hive. The democratic party has
taken its stand in defense of the Con -fctitutiun
and civil liberty. It is for
fcubvertitig military rule and negro
s promaey and bringing .back the
govrnment to first principles. These
are tho vital objects for which we aro
contending, and having no party and
believing this to bo no time to try
to rusjituto an eld, or build up h
now oue. we ta?;e our stand upon the
democratic platform and pledge to it
our humble support. Past differeuecs
now of no vital io'port, wo fling to
tho winds and to that party we offer
purso and motald, aind increasing pov
erty and criroej ant tho career of tho
party is marked by .no siegU nieaa
ure that is statesmanlike wiseot benfi-
eent Towards the 8onth it has evin
ced nothing but . malignity, . and
towards the North nothing but a de
termination to make labor subservient
to oapital utxl to build up a privileged
aristocracy with unlimited money
power, will the people of either
section try them again, as rulers?
Will they not rather strive to make
the Constitution the supreme law ia
placo of the arbitrary will of a feroci
ous Congress that delights in blood
and Buffering and has debased itself!
by the effort to degrade those of its
own race below tho level of semibarba
rous negroes. .... .
The trinmph of tfio Conservatives
in tho Memphis election, is u very
cheering inoident in the history ofl
the day, when 'connectod with the
foot that the Radicals resorted to all
the rascality for which they ar noted,
iti order to elect' their candidates.
Mr. Leftwhich will make an efficient
officer, and the city affairs will be ad
mistered in the Interests of the entire
population, not of negroes and bum
mers only. It is fair to infer from
this result, that a portion, at least, of
the Radicals are beginning to see and
appreciate the dangers pending over
the country, from the Joint influence
of negro ignorance and Radical cor
ruption. Every section of the State
ought to.take heart from tho example
set by Memphis, and try to do likewise.
