THE LOST GIRL
BY BOUEB BTABBVCK.
Two weeks out from New London,

Bandon by name, the daughter of the
second mate, had come up on deck.
She stood by the rail, her blight hair
flowing in silky, rippling curls, back
from her checks, which bore the soft
tints of the seashell. She waa a great
favorite with all the hands, who
would have done almost an vthlnor for
one so kind and affectionate. The
first mate. Wardock, a fine looking
young fellow of twenty-five, was
smitten with Mary's charms at once.

that she was not at all averse to the
society of one who was the son of an
old friend of her father,

mate for a long time. Hhe also tho't

ho has made since his return to this
country, and that I have been the
objective point of many of his un-
Srlnclpled and indecent libels. The'
lorthcrn masses have been so prone
to misunderstand any appearance
that I have made In the present cam
paign, that I have been content,';
heretofore, to forego any notice of
General Kllpatrlck's Inventions in
rcgnrd to myself, and to trust that
some future and more auspicious time
would afford me an opportunity of
stripping the impostor and exposing
him, the base counterfeit he Is, to the;
contempt of all Just and fair minded
people. My forlearance, however, Is
construed by him as u license to addi
tional and more slanderous detrac
tion, and I am constrained to notice
his New Haven speech, as It appear
ed In the Register of October, 21, '68.
In that speech he Is reported as say
ing that "Ihrrett had nailed nrgroci
to fence, tet fire to the cnocs, and
burned the negro to death."
The chnrge Is but the natural otT
spring of Kllpatrlck's common and
merited fame as an unprincipled and
easy liar. It Is enough for me to say,
in which I reel I will he believed and
sustained by every chivalrio officer
and soldier of the Federal army, that
wnai ne nas said or me in tne speech,
referred to, is the culmination of
slanderous falsehood, rendered the
more odious that it Is dulllieratclv
forged for effect upon the unthinking
and too confiding portion of the peo
ple of the North, whose votes he In
tends to steal bv such criminal ami
disreputable Inventions. As such re
ports, whether emanating from this
creature Kllpatrick. or from any one
else, which tend In any way to create
the Impression that I conducted my
humble part in the war tlnan anv
other than the strictest principles of
civuizea warfare, are utterly untrue,
ana are tne .corrupt and rccuicnt fic
tions of designing and rascally slan
derers. I am not prone to obtrudv
matters of this kind upon the nubile
notice, and would have been glad to
have met Kllpatrick and settled this
arrair in a less public and more em
phatic manner ; and if It should hap
pen thnt this note should meet his
eye, nnd he should make it the pro
vocation of any additional display of
words, any one wno may hear him Is
at liberty to assure him that I am
ready to meet him in any way thnt
ne may cnoosc, and wniisc i am
averse to auy personal conflict, I
snould much prefer to gratify any
wish he may cherish In that way, to
being the further subject of his un
manly defamation and uusoldierllkc

lng what must be 1110 policy of the
Democratio party If that pmi Is

CtAaicsvii.Mt, TaifN., Nov. 3, 1808.
1 agfe wffh votf fullr and most
heartily in the suggestion that the
white men of this Stale should at
once raise the standard or a white
man's government. I am utterly and
uncompromisingly opposed to negro
suffrage in any shape that the abom
ination can take. When our Central
Committee Issued their address, I at
once Imposed a silence upen myself
which l nave not, broken, i deter
mined to take service under no such
banner to endorse negro suffrage
under no circumstances no prospect
of temporary or local advantage can
induce mo to sanction it- Tne heresy
can result Id nothing but evil, aud I
am in favor of making to tho negro
no promise whatever that will bind
us. when we come Into power, not to
rkl tho country of the curse of bar
barism at the ballot-box. I unve tne
proud consolation of knowing that I
never addressed a negro audience and
never made a promise of any sort to
a negro. I had as soon mount a
stump in a ten aero lot filled with
mule, and undertake, uy argument,
to convince them of tho lmnroinictv
of breaking Into a cornfield, as to at
tempt to argue pontics or souse into
tne Kinks and wooi on a negro-s
head. Our platform should be:
"This Is a white man's government,
and - should continue so to be." 1
feel that I brought but little out of the
war, but my self-respect, and as long
as I keep my senses, t don't want to
forfeit It. Now, I do not say that ev
ery man who has given In Ills adhe
sion to negro suffrage has forfeited his
seir-reapect by no means for many
estimable gentlemen navoaone tuts
believing It was for tho best. 1
honor their motives and . respect
them as much as j ever din; out i
think their policy a. mistaken
one. Iiftst year the Conserva
tives laid down a platform and put
Ktherldge on It, in which they ar
raigned the Kmltcal party for not go
ing far enough ou the negroqncstlon:
saying to the negroes, "these Radicals
were not your menus join us anu wo
will not only let you vote, but also
hold ofllce and sit on Juries." This
was the fl rut departure from principle.
Murk the consequences. Etheridge
was beaten by about ixywo majority:
the negroes turned up their nose at
the Conservative party, anil the Had
leal Legislature met aud were abso
lutely forced to confer upon the negro
all the rights promised them lu the
Conservative platform. ow, our
Central Committee conies forward
with another nramise to the negro to
be again laughed at bv the ncaro, as the
election to-morrow win snow, ir we
are white men, With the proud blood
of the Anglo-Saxon race In our veins,
let us be true to the high heritage of
our blood and races and never agree
that negroes snail put their barbarian
hands Into the politics of our coun
try. The uegroo's good, no loss than
the country's demands this, Next
summer vou And the original Union
men of this State Irt favor of a State
Convention with another platform,
on which Kd. CooiMir or some other
Union man must be mounted, to be
again overwhelmingly defeated.
Now. I have no oltleetion to such Un
ion mcu as Coojictot Ktherldge being
Governor, but 1 do object to the party
lu this Htate being any longer com
mitted, irt any shape, to negro suf
frage. I know it will be said, we
can't hope to win without It ; but tho
truth Is, we can't win with It, and I
prefer defeat to victory ou any such
platform, and If there is no chance to
succeed oil A White man's platform,
let us run no candidate, and let the
Radicals Aght aud split among them
selves, I am opposed any longer to
be silent on this subject. I am un
willing to separate ourselves from the
Democracy of the North ou this ques
tion, and the doctrine that this Is a
whlto man's government will sooner
or later gather around It an over
whelming majority of tho American
people. I shall oiukmo the nomina
tion of any candidate for Oovernor
on any more negro platforms. From
the prexcni lights i think wen an bet
ter hinko no nomination. Should
tho Supremo Court of the United
States set tho white men of this State
free- then, thank God. Wo will know
what to do.
