BRAVE KATE HEATH.
Tho year 1778 was a dark and
gloomy one for our forefathers, who
were then struggling for liberty. In
South Carolina amiirs were then In a
critical condition. General Greene
made an unsuccessful attack on
the HritiMh Post of Ninety-six, and
withdrew his men beyond the Tiger
and Broad Rivers. Lord Rawdon fol
lowed him, but could not draw the
patriot gonernl Into an engagement.
At that period there stood in Houth
Carolina a plain and unassuming
house, it was a one-story building,
neutly white-washed nnd surrounded
by a fenco. The Harden contained
kmany choice flowers, and the beauti
ful noney suckle shaded tlie doors and
windows. It was the home of Mrs.
Heath, who lived with her two
daughters, while her son George was
in Washington's army, fighting for
Kate, the eldest of the daughters,
was a beautiful girl of sixteen sum
mers; her ahurnhair hung In graceful
curls down her shoulders, and her face
beamed with kindness, while her eyes
shone like the stars that lit up the
azure vault of Heaven.
One evening, as Kate was standing
at the cottage door, she beheld two
mounted orncers approaching. They
were richly dressed, and one of them
she recognized as Lord Ruwdon, the
commander of the British forces in
that section of the country. They
rode up to her. and Kawdou leaned
over in his saddle and said, in a kind
"Well, Miss, can you let me have
the use of a room for a few minutes?"
Yes, sir, our house hi open to you."
Come, Colonel, let us liuny up
business," said Rawdon, dismount
ing, while tlie Colonel tint tlie same,
the latter leading the horses to the
Lord Rawdon advanced to where
Kate was standing and snid ;
"Whose house is this, Miss?"
"Mrs. Heath's sir."
"Hal her son is in the rebel army
under Washington, is he not?"
Kate tiembled at the insult, and
she look at the Briton with a search
"My brother is no rebel, Lord Raw
don: he is fighting for his country."
"I am sorry for that; he is a brave
boy, and would, no doubt, make a
good British soldier," returned Raw
"Lord Rawdon, you Insult me, sir;
I would sooner see GeorgB die a fel
on's deatli than see him in the king's
army was the heroic answer.
"I see you are a rebel, to, Miss
Heath. But here comes the Colonel,"
said Rawdon, ns he saw that worthy
doming from the stable.
They entered the house and went
Into a small room to hold a consulta
tion. Kute thought they might have
something important to say: so she
concluded to play the part bf an
eavesdropper. She told ner mother
of her Intention Who approved of it,
and Kate placed herself in a position
to hoar Briton's plaits.
It was a dangerous undertaking,
and she knew that if she was caught
In the act f listening she would bo
treated as a spy, and jierhaps execu
ted, for Lord Rawdoti knew no mer
cy. She cautiously approached the
disir and looked through a crevice.
Rnwdon and bis Colonel Were seated
at a small lltblo on which lay maps.
Thev were examining them closely,
While Rawdon was explaining them
to his Colonel.
"Here is tireene's camp," said hej
"and here Is ours. We must mnkfJ a
bold striko, und if it be successful,
Greene Will bo destroyed."
"I don't s'o why it should not suc
ceed, do you, iny'Lord?"
"No; Ir our troops fight lis well as
they have heretofore, we shall suc
ceed," said Rawdon, his thee assuni

"Then we make the attack at day

"W do; have voiir regiment ready

IH rlt 1 PfiIUi occause through that
agency alone can Its prosperity be re
covered or its losses repaireif. And
yet the stato of the country Is really
worse to-day than It was at the close
of the war, and has lieon made so ciir-'
tirely by the determination of the rad
ical rulers to foment discord and pro
long strife In tho intercuts of their
political ascendency. Restore the
Houth to Its normal relations fh' the
Union, let commerce and Intercourse
resume their accustomed ways, revive
credit and confidence between the
two sections, and the radical party
would at once ccrtso to exist, and le
disolved by a natural law. It lives
ny agitation alone, and hence all Its
policy Is directed to keep up agitation.
it is for this reason that all tlie va
rious schemes of reconstruction have
been invented to oppress nnd degrade
the Southern people; that a military
despotism ruoro odious nnd outrago
ous than any devised by Austrian
tyranny has been continued; that the
Freedmen's Bureau has been extend
ed, and that bloody riot have lxon
encouraged to influence puhllo opin
ion. All these diabolical Inventions
were contrived for the single purpose
of keeping up Irritation, and of ex
cluding the South from the Union.
Had there leen the least sincere wish
for peace, or any cnimoity in Congress
to bring It about, nil those differences
would have boen settled, and all the
wounds closed at the very first session
after the war had ceased. '
But there was no such Intention,
and no such desire. The best proof of
that fact Is to be found in the bitter
ness with which the concillntorv
course of Mr. Lincoln was pursued,
aim ine manner in w tiicn np was per
sonally persecuted by the Stimners,
Stevensi!s and others, who since his
death, have been seeking popularity
out of the man whom they Jiad un
scrupulously assailed while living.-
They sought to stimulate nad
passions in tho South, and to provoke
resentment by the most cruel and das
tardly wrongs, hoping to. convert that
resentment Into political capital, and
to speculate upon It as an article . of
trade. This is the spirit iri which
they have treated a proud and pros
trate people of their own bloixl, and
after Imixising terms most disgraceful
to our age and civilization they ex
pect them to kiss tlie rod, and to ac
cept their degratlon as a boon.
Now that they have established
negro supremacy by the power of the
bavonet: that thev bnve auhlortml the
white men, women, and children of
the South to the brutal barbarlanlsm
of tho former slaves; that they have
elevated ignorance, vice, loatlisoni"
sensuality, and crime into the high
places of tnist and honor, above vir
tue, inteirrltv. intellltrence. and edu-
oatiotai that tlic.v havo overrun the
South with plundering ailveiiturers)
canting hyjiocrites, and carpet-bag
knaves; that they have, by force and
iraiHi Hnn vutainy; secured possession
of theStnte Governments, and placed
the whole political power in the
hands of hired negro etniriisarlesaniM
anil tnieving agents or mo ireeil
men's Bureau; and that they have
robbed a ruined people' of almost their
last dollar by an infamous system of
taxation, lmjxiseu oy, negroes desti

ance, after commiting these Crimes,
and others equally atrocious, .their
leader, General Grant, under tlie in
structions of his keepers, has the as
surance to say, "Let, Us have peace!''
The men who have kept up the war
during tho last three years, arid who
design to keep it tip in the future as
they bave done fri tho past, on the
eve of tho election cry out "peace!"
that Is to say, a peace which Is to bow
down ih submission before negro sit-
firemaey, and to uccept it as a condi
Iin of toleration.,
We ti'll thesri Vindictive rind des
perate destriict Ives that there can M
no real peace so long as the white
race bf tlie South is subjected to liie
rule of tho black, nnd that the return
of all material prosperity Is lmposlble
while that domination oontlhties.
They devised It with perverse Inge
nuity to shut out a possibllllty of re
conciliation, and as means of pro
Ix't us n'it be deceived by tho hy
pocrisy of those who prate of "peace,"
and whose policy Is W ar. They seek
to embroil tlio country in .anew civil
war, In the hope of distributing
another thousand millions of the
people's money among shoddy con
tractors, radical de'magorrues, and
manufacturing monopolists. But
they seem to forget that If such a ca
lamity should again liefnl the country
by their wicked and willful deslgtis,
it wilt Involve no liK'iil passion or in
