of them as a sample of the rest, nor
does he wish to be understood as at-
tacking these men as private citizens,
With that he has nothing to do, it is
only in their political capacity hat
lie assaiU them. Indeed he believes
that In his personal relations with his
fellowmen, no purer man ever lived
than he whose nolitleal onnrm tha
writer wishes to hold up to the scorn
and contempt of men. He does this
not that he may injure the man, but
for the good of his people. He does
it that he may warn all men, of all
parties, against the Influence of htm
who has not the bold, manly honor
able courage to stand by his friends
and his principles when pressed by
defeat, but, who is ever anxiously
upon the lookout for the uppermost
wave that he may ride upon it, a man
who is the political enemy of all
mankind. Over and over again ho
has betrayed all men of all parties,
and of both colors, shlftinir so oulek-
ly that few men know where he stood
yesterday, still less care where he
stands to-day, and we shall be com
pel led to follow hurriedly if we wish
to find him to-morrow. There is no
con fldence to be placed in such men.
We can admire a bold, fearless,
openhearted. candid enemy, but all
mankind from gray haired ace to In
fancy turn with detestation from him
who wins confidence to return it with
a bane betrayal.
Whenever publlo men set them'
selves up in a political character as
leaders of tho people, it becomes the
uuty or an men, whatever their own
views may ne, and irrespective or all
persoual fccling. nav. even, if neces
sary, at the sacrifice of life itself, and
all its dearest relations, to examine
into the past lives of such men, to see
whether they are worthy of oonfi-
aence. to make tms enquiry Is a
right which no public man will dnre
aeny. ana rrom wnicii no honest man
will shrink; -
The people should know the char
acters of their leaders, and follow
none but the pure and true, none
but they whose lives are grand and
noble, whose characters aDDroach an
almost god-likeslmpliclty and majes
ty, a more than Roman Integrity.
The people should know whether
their past lives have been one stead v.
unwavering, unflinching, eagle-like
course In the cause of God, Justice,
truth, liberty and right, "as God has
given them to see the right," or
whether it has been light, giddy,
trifling, ever changing, now here, now
there, like the lightning's fig rag
course, a mere Will o' the Wisp, to
lead deluded followers, first in one di
rection, thon in another, and then
call upon them to retrace their steps.
Men of the latter class are not the
men In whom to put our trust. They
are not the men to tlo to. They are
mere broken reeds upon which to lean
our strength. They are. wltluut fore
sight, without wisdom, without that
discerning judgment and determined
energy so essential to success. Their
minds as variable as tho winds have
no naiancing power, and they them
selves very soon become mere degrad
ed, helpless, pitiable tools In the hands
of ileslgnlug men, who even while
using them, scorn and detest them.
Then, when the contemptible thing
has served their purpose, they kick It
ono side as heartlessly and unceremo
niously ns they would a decayed car
cass. What a pity that the cultiva
ted, refiued, enobled human mind
should so utterly fall, sink down,

Gratitude to a jHople who, when we

bna been the order . of tho day front
Maina to Teaav. Viewing the cease
Ices activity and excitement In tho
field of American politic, stranger
would be led to the oenuluslon t hat al 1
Americans live by politics: thutthev
have nothing to d'o but to think, talk
and writs poUMrs The truth i.,. thai
we all,, at the North and al the South,,
waste more of our time on this nn
profitable subject than we bestow
upon our leading Industries; aud we
are drawn Into It by the eompamftive
ly few men who make politics a trade.
Statfots and economists have wields- -ted
with precision tho annual losses
In material wealth consequent upon
floodN, fires, convulsions of nature, ac
cidents, and varlousothercati!es : but
we are not a ware, that any of theirs
have estimated the much greater loss
In America by reason of tho almost
universal waste of time In attention,
to politics. Tbe subject Is a largo
one, and we tlo not propone more than
Its simple suggestion. But we veil turo
to say that at tho South, tn the Inst
four years, this loss bus been fright-,
ful. Heretofore our whllf population,
alone Interested thcmsvlvea In thl
subject, and tho laboring class, know
ing nothing about It, aud coring?
nothing for it, pursued their usual la
bor without diversion. Tho great
work of agriculture, and of such man
ufactures aa were carried on by black
labor, knew no interruption. But lu,
the last four years a large shnrcof the
time of both classes has been giver
to politics. If thia time had been de
voted to our industries, we would all
have been worth three-fold more than
we erenow worth, and tbe aggregate
of wealth would have been trebled.
And what have we gained T Liter
ally nothing. Our loss has been a
clear one. The gift of suffrage to tho
negroes was a free gift by the North :
and the negroes have added nothing
to it by their ceaseless efforts and agU
tatlons. As for ourselves, It Is by nn'
means certain that we have not in
creased and aggravated the political
disabilities and industrial burdens wo
sought to get rid of by our active par.
ucipation in political movcmonis. ir
any one should doubt as to thia

the time spent in politics has been
thrown awny. Many, indued, hold
that it has been worse than thrown
away having resulted In multi

grlenanees. Let us all. therefore, ro-
solve to profit by this lesson, and
