A correspondent of the New York

There Is very little left of the Ile

terriuie a downfall to a party

other places throughout the State,
efforts made to induce tho negroes to

have a dozen or so colored men for ah
audience. Yet we lalsircd on zeal
ously ami determinedly, and now I
can anuounco that we have most ef
fectually breached this wall which
the Radical party had created; the
white colored Republicans are flock
ing to tho side of Seymour and lilair
in tremendous force. The Kepubll-
enn party is split in twain, they nre

We are In the midst of our cam-
paign now, thoroughly equipped,
ti nd a feeble foe to contend wit
Our legislature, after being defeated
m tneiretiorts to cast the electoral
vote, neglected to make any provis
ion tor registration, i ney were lg.
norant enough inffr'"'ntive matters
to think that, byVJitjoiirning until
the 1st of November next, they could
then, by a two third vote, annul the
Governo "- . "-.they must re-
come a law In one day, nor two, so
they can not effect their end In this
way. Let them proceed asthey may,
we propose to follow the laws of Ala
bama, and In conformity to them
proceed, at the proper time, to elect
our President. The code of Alalia ma
was adopted by our recent Legisla
ture, and in conformity to Its require
ments wo will register and vote at
the coming election. - If Governor
Smith sees proper to adopt the advice
of his Attorney General, nnd decide
that an election must not be held
with nil respect and consideration for
his Individual views, we propose,
through the Chairman of tho Demo
cratic Executive Committee, to np-
fioint Judges of election throughout
he Stnte, and In a quiet, orderly
way, deposit our votes.
We are determined thnt the efforts
of the Kcnubl leans (who know thata
fair vote will bo their defeat) to
avoid an election shall not prevent us
from exercising our constitutional
right to vote. The bogusconstitutlon
prescribes an infamous oath, and al
though their neglect to provide for
the registration of votoin annul pro
perly the necessity of that oath, still
we are willing to swullow iU We
can and will do so; and then their
constitutional requirement will bd
complied with. We Democrats of Ala
bama, are determined to do nothing
which is not constitutional which Is
not every way right and proper. V e
ore a law abiding, conservative peo
ple, but wo do not intend that the
Radical party, now that they have
tumbled lo pieces by their own rot
tenness, and now Unit they are whip
ped, hiihii resort to fraud, chicanery
and vlllany to avoid a fair nnd Just
contest fur tho Presidency. We have
ut this time a miijority for Seymour
ana Jiiiur or ao.iKNi. now mucii
irreater our mnioritr will prove in
NovemlsT next I know not on ac
count of tho unexpected and unpre
cedented additions to our party.
Radicalism has bad Its short lived
day In Alabama, and, as I predicted
long ago iu one of my letters, was so
full of fraud, chicanery und villuny as
to fnll to pieces by lis own weight.
Our electors have all lieon appointed,
and will dike the Acid immediately.
Evcnthough wo have a weak foo to
contend against, yet wo n-oach our
cause lar and wide, for Uhu its sue
ccsss depends tho wvul or woe of Alu-
llow lha people ar. Taird anrt Why.

ngainst this change in the organic

Democratic party of tho Union has
protested with a unanimity, an ardor

Our response is. "We come !" We

the East, the South and the West,
pledging ourselves to do all that may
tie done to put tho revolutionists to

world liberty and iuotice Rowing horn

In Coming to this determination,
the Executive Committee have not
been unmindful of thedifttculties and

have fettered us for three years, nnd
the preset! t nutocratid powers over the

We, therefore, appeal to the people
of the State cn matme to unite with
us und with a powerful national De
mocracy iu the campaign, and to or
ganize without delay for the final day.
The ticket for electors for the State at
large Is complete In the d, 8d, 4th,
6th, Oth and 8th Congressional Dls
tricts, Electors are yet to bo chosen
or appointed in tho two remaining
districts. Let this be done immedi
ately. A plan of canvass will be sent
within a fow days to the various coun
ties. In the meantime let the De
mocracy of each town, county and
el vil d istrict organ Ize its Sey mour ai id
Bluir Clubs, enrolling the names of
non-voters as well us voters, ana go
actively and vigorously to work to
poll as many voles as possible. A
lurire class of our voting population
has been deceived, cajoled, hired or
frightened into the support of the
Radical party. They are belug unde
ceived : let us now press ou the work
until tiiey shall be convinced of the
Radical enormities of the timea The
arguments for the purpose are press
ing and strong. J ty watchfulness ami
industry ; by prudence, nnd substan
tial kindness, the minds of this class
can be relieved of fnlsohood and made
to compraheiid the truth, and a lurge
proportion brought to the support of
our ticket, in ims direction lies mucii
of the efficient work of the canvass :
and Judging from tho results in other
States, we believe that even here we
can break the siwcr of the party that
