R. W. THOMAS,.
Belief for ttie starving poor of the
tfoath, is claiming the attention of
both sections' The goveromont is
not rich enough, with the aid of nor
thern capital to relieve the South so
long as the Radical policy is persist
ed in.- That policy is reducing the
population to poverty at a rate that
will soon place relief beyond the reach
of the most earnest charity, and when
this resource fails, then will come
that warof extermination which Rad
icals are industriously inaugurating.
The only efficieut remedy for tin
rspidly increasing poverty of the
South, is the application of political
justice to the States now groaning
under the merciless rule of vindictive
and atnpid knaves. The people of
the North are beginning to discover
that the continued impoverishment of
the South must add to their own bur
dens in a ratio with the decrease of rev
enue that might be derived from the
southern staples if the government
were administered by wise men, in
stead of fools, by patriots instead of
corrupt traitors to the constitution,
by statesmen instead of dirty place
hunters and malignant partisans.
It it cheaper to relieve the South by
doing it simple justice, ' under the
constitution, than to destroy its lib
erty and prosperity and throw it up
on publio charity to save it from star
It is said thst the President is
preparing a special message to Con
gress on the deplorsble state of things
in the South. Does he expect to im
part information lo the men who
have been working for more than
two years, to bring nBout this very
state of things ? What can be hoped
from such a communication to such
men? Shame or a momentary feel
ing of compunction may prompt that
body to voto money for the South,
instead of righting its wrongs. So
long asifs labor system is kept tho
roughly disorganised, with the settled
purpose to make the negroes idle and
turbulent, and, therefore, the more
available political allies of the Radi
cal party, money aid is a temporary
expedient. Wilh no reliable labor
and a heavy tax upon its lending sta
ple, to depress its growth here, and
encourage its production iu British
dependencies, the southern people
have do means of recuperuiion left
thetn, and with negro supremacy su
peradded, they have nothing to ex
pect but continued poverty and
wrong, to culminate in expatriation
or a war of races, in which both sec
tions will become invclved, when for-
foreign intervention may play a part
with a view to the dismemberment of
a government at once, arrogant, in
tolerant and impertinently intermed
dling. European governments are
becoming painfully conscious that
the Atlantic is not too wide to be
spanned by the arch fieud puritan-
ism which was never known to live
in peace with any government within
its reach, nor cease from troubling
that to which its allegiance was due.
In the uncertainty of human events
no one can foresee the consequences
of a war of races. Should tho Rod
icals rally to the support of their
sable brethren, the democrats, for
tho sake of liberty snd a preference
for their own race will tale up arms
on the other side, and such a war can
only be one of extermination unless
some foreign power should intervene
and dictate terms to tho combatants.
What those terms may be, can only
be surmised, but there is not a man
in the South whose honest indigna
tion, self-respect and seU-iatorest
would not cause him to prefer that
tho Southern Stales should be de
pendencies of England or Prance
rather than the oppressed military
satrapies of tho infernal.Kadicals. If
this bo treason, "let er rip."

The orier for the rmoval of Ord
and Pope and Swayne enjoina upon
their successors the duty of exercising
the powers eonfered upon them by
the military bill. It pussies strait
forwii d common sense people to un
derstand why the President orders
the enforcement of a law which he
haa repeatedly declared to be uncon
stitutional, and this too aft:r having
solemnly sworn to defend and pre
serve the Constitution. It may be
asked too, if the new satraps are are to
carry out stricly, the provisions of the
reconstruction act, what is tho South
to gain by the change of masters ?
The only advantage gained is, that
the new appointees will, probably,
turn the scrws with a more courteous
manner than did their brutal prede
cessors. But what docs it matter to
the Victims whether the excutioner
wears a smile or a frown while dis
charging his official duties?
Ths fact Is pretty well known that s radi
cal Judge by tb. nam. of Hunter has been
annoying tb editors of lb Mempbij Ara
lancb with a "couterapt suit." Here Is
what th. Cairo Democrat says about th. er
mined follower of Bill J Bed d:
If th. Avalanche proprietors entertain to
ward Judge William Hunter any other ten
timent than that of conpt.mpt, they are
themselves fit subjects for contempt. H. it
in all things, th most ronlaraptli.l. man in
Tennetsea, and bit muddled brain as inno
cent tf any tense as his heart is of any hon
orable or decent Impulse. W. know him.
He was born God knows where I Of bis
intaoey aod bis childhood nothing la record
ed. In bis niAturer years he btcam. a pat
tern maker, and in 1867 worked for Mr.
(Soodlow, of Mound City, in Pulaski county.
Being nn Incompetent mechanic, he was dis
charged by hi employer. Out of work
out of mooey out of decent society out
at th. elbows, and without frienda or credit
a loufi-r and a sot, Bill Hunter was put to
bis wits' ends to keep bis lazy body and bis
mraa soul together. Bui ha succeeded.
In bis distress ba conceived lb. idea of

But Hunter did not confine himself to the
law. Beings pretended musician, b under
took to teach a Cairo brass band, nnd was
pronounced a complete failure. Wbil. in
lb. peformanc of ibis duty, tho subject of
this memoir frequently partook, at lb. x
pen, of tbe member of tb band, of Cairo
whisky, and becomiug thoroughly convinced
of It superiority to Mound City wbUky,
(and H unlet It a good judge of whisky If be
is not of law.) ba coucluded to remove to
Cairo. He did ao, renting a bouse here for
which he never paid the rent while a citi
zen of Cairo be did nothing but lounge
about saloons "sponging" bit liquor, and whs
reputed lo be, at that lime, a very contempti
ble fellow, and acousmuiat. rascal.
hen th. wnr broke out, a number ol
" odds and ends ' organised a company, and
Hunter suweeded in becoming its captain.

Judge I in the argument of lb Avalanche
contempt case, one of the counsel fur the dc-
lense said : ' If I were lo say uere ana now.
Uunter, you nr. n d d fool.' I would be
guilty of contempt." This may h. so; lint
if he had used Ibis expression, .no on wuo
knows Hunter would deuy that ths lawyer
had told tb. truth.
The New York World niters a historical
truth when, discussing the negro question, it
sars: 'Tbere is no example in uutuiry oi
free Institution! among any of the colored
races. .Mexico aud the South American re
public tried the experiment of free Institu
tions; originating with the Spanish race, and
admitting Indians and negroes to the suf
frage ; but those rickety republics have been
a coustaut some of anarchy and tumult, nnd
should servs as a warning, not as au exam
ule. We suppose no Reiaihlican will care lo
cite the history ot tbe cul-tbroal inhabitants
or Sao Domingo. Tbe negroes vole in
Jamaica, and are t majority ; but Jamaica is
notoriously lb. worst governed ot all the
BrilUh colonies, and tbe state or things tbere
would be intolerable, if the bom. govern
mrnt did not constantly exert its restraining
authority. II Ibe Republican policy I car
ried out, three years will not elapee before the
horrors of San Domingo will b re-enacted
in . very part of tba Siiulb.
Thi'rlow Wisd has discovered that we
hav. "hard times" among us. He says :
"We hav now readied a point where It is
absolutely necessary to remove some of the
burdens that press upon industry. For
many of tbe evils that now press upon I lie
industrial interests of the country I ongress
is largely responsible. It has deferred the
settlement of grave subjects of finance and
taxation for the mere partisan exhibitions;
aud. in plate of removing the burdens of the
country, it has actually Increased them by
inexcusable extravannc. and prodigality.
Tbe whole course of Congressional financial
legislation has been falie, wasteful, and per
nicious, aud exercise a most depresing in
fluence upon the country. Great financial
economical reforms are needed, and requires
no prophet lo forlcll thai any doluy or short
