That feature, however, which is raoro
sharply defined than nil ulxo in tho deal

the colored raco ut tho south, li tho riid
isolation thoy have been induced to main
tain. To thul end every legal and politi
cal appliance hat been directed. To that
end special luwt huvu beon invoked from
a paitiinn eungress, such an that of July
10. 1607. and March 11, 1 SOS. Tho latter
was supplemented by tho ku-klux act of
April 2U, 1871, and still further enactment
in the same buhulf una demanded in thu
session ot lbll. To Hint end thu opera
tions or tho froednmn s bureau was prosti
tute!, the military intervention chiefly
directed, tho officers of thu nrmy converted
into Doliticnl atrents, and thu service made
u steppiny-stono to the gubernatorial chair
or the United Status senate, To that end
oven crime went unpunished, thu peniten
tiarles were transformed into partisan
schools, and in onu Instance of iUs con
vlcts pardoned on tho evo of election, 190
were nee-roes, 'fo that end tho control of
the sonthern states was organized upon
an almost oxclusivocolered vote, and has
beon held fixedly by tho samo tunuro over
since: Tho doctrine inculcated lucre lias
been, and it still is, an imagined necessity
to combine us u raco and soizo on all power
for protecttni; liberties which thoy nro
taught to bulievu nro threatened. In tho
("tates themselves, when nscendancy had
been thus achloved, tho local Initiation
was promptly cnulneercd in tho samo
channel. Tho election laws, tho rojrhtra
tlon laws, tho militia laws, tho tax laws
are all illustrations in point. The band

into a political unit. And tho facts fol

Hut I will not tax your patlencoby fur
ther detail to establish what cannot bo
seriouly controverted, that tho policy of
tno administration in us ptolctilluusgunru
lauship of tho colored raco has been to
maintain it nn in isolated condition, to in-
ilro It with fpurof re-ensbivcmont from
io While, to consolidate it a a caslo act-
ni: together politically nud militarily, nnd
to ufo it, thus organized, to perpetuate Its
own power in national affairs, by domina
ting elections in me souincrn stales.
Doe it, iiowover, renin re any irreat tore-
sight to perceivo that thuso who nro
trained to apprehend enmity soon deem it
right to becomo enemies, that in such
event the conflicts ut tho noils will bo only
precursors of fraud nnd violonco to compel
electoral victories, ami that nn administra
tion which encouragos such n fell spirit
of bitterness, injustice, slavery proparo
tho way, at no distant day, not for peace
but for war between tho whilo nnd black
races.
Tho presentation thus mado shows that
the just expectation of tho country in re
gard ton reconciliation of thu rncos equal
ly os of tho sections, has been wantonly
trilled with by tho president and hispnrty.
It mny liKuwi'o bo shown conclusively
that no excuse can be found for such
coHrsos In tho allegation that they were
ncccssnry to protect tho liberties and citi
zenship ot ttio lrccumcn.
As incts nro wnnt nro wnntcu, rainnr
than theories, It will be best to set forth
In contrast tho condition of those states
which were nble to throw off tho adminis
tration interference, and confide their
nlfulrs to their own people. Take as illu
trntions Virginia, Tonnnsseo and Missouri.
Thoy had been moro devastated by wor,
and moro chorged with hatreds and ran
cors bred of slavery and rebollion than
any communities at tho south. Every
neighborhood, everv connection, nearly
every flresido had been a discord. At tho
outset thu same regimen was applied un
der federal auspice') to each and with re
sult prccisoly similar to thoso exhibited
recently nt the south, l ortunateiy jor

policies for relief. Perfect amnesty to nil

and full recognition of all thu civil rights
confirmed to tho colored population by tho
wnr wcro tno two great principles on
which their departure wn9 based. And
as soon as applied tho offect win magical.
Uivil order was nt once restored every
where Tho pcaco of neighborhoods bo-
camo permanent, memories of former hos-
li v were loriroiteti. nil itirinng animosity
of race disappeared, nnd tho whole people
turned with ono accord to repair ty innus

1,073,792, have been enhanced to over
S3U0U.UOO.00a unit it is estimated that .tlio
burden of taxation, especially for local
purpose, has been decreased fully one
third. Mi'souri, prosperous in bur fluan
ces sinco 1808, has received additional im
pulse in production and development
wlnlst uenrgia has signalized nor deliver
ance by impeaching tho governor, reduc
ing thu expense of administration and
stopping tho payment of $0,000,000 of
fraudulently issuod bonds. In no ono of
theso states is any complaint now heard
of official dishonesty or arbitrary govern
ment, for equal laws protect all, and jus
tice is meted out without fear or favor.
In all of lhem likuwisu thu condition of
tho colored raco is unexeep-
tlonablv favorable. Tho freed-
men aro fecuru in their persons, enjoy
their franchise without hindrance, nnd aro
rented with u kind consideration ol ton
denied them olsuwhvro. Perhaps Mis
souri, which has had tho largest uxperi-
n co ot liberal politics, may best tiu taken
luiinucu tno ellect upon lliul class oi
mr population, llv tho action of her
eoplu in 1870, thu cnuttl rights nnd fran
chises of all, without respect to color or

since onactod, curry out fully thu intent
of tho constitution, so that frcudiucn sit on

annual appropriations Irom thu slate, and
in all way enter freelv and Intelligently
into political u ml industrial I Ho
as independent citizens, Nor is
there any sign any whuru of n catto or
ganization, or an attempt to array thorn
hi tho prejudice of raco. Even their loyal
leagues havo disappeared from tho body of
tho country, ami languitiiiugiy exiti omy

anticipated from their provious condition,

quontly enjoy that freedom, oxcrciso that
lreedom, huve no fears about that freedom,
and express no dosiru to see restriction
placed upon thu freedom of any other hu
man being. This parallel between tho
last named btatcs and thoso consigned to
misery and misrule at thu south, might bo
pushed into other lines ot inquiry relat
ing to the wull buing of communities, but
it has covered the two subjects embraced
in tho nrcuniont, and that will bo suffi
cient, When, tlicruforc, it liberalism thu
very reverse of that policy insisted on by
I tin preiidont und his party is seen to worii
out such perfect reconciliation and protec
tion to tho freedmen in three great states
in every slate wiiuro it lias beon tried
with what how of reason can it bo af
firmed that security for thu rights of tho
colored raco demands anywhere tho vlr
tiittl subjection of thu wliitu raco. Is it
not a libel upon tho whole of tho whlto
population of the nation those nt the
north as well as llioeoat the south? Can
insulting mockery go farther than to claim
for it iiidurseincut ami continuance to
appeal thoro by to ties of blood and line
ago In the Mack man, yet in tlio 6nmo
breath repudiate, like ties of blood and
lincai'i in tho white man? Will it, In
deed, evor bo believed hereafter, when tho
history of this time comes to bo. iinpar
tlully written, that such deinnnd could
have originated in any mcru hllnddo parti
san zeal ? Will It not bo credited rather,
that it had for Its ulterior iiroinptiiiL'. a
selfish, callous, nefarious design, tosecuro,
ai nn Hazard, personal aggrandizement
for tho elder architect of such policy ?
In making this appeal totho judgment
and conscience of tho north, whilst I
would wish to present In a truu light tho
flagrant wrongs visited so needlessly upon
those ut tho south, who aro knit to us bv
many kindred and associate tics, I would
not willingly overlook tho deep obllga-' night tho houses of Judge Alllngton, Jas.

north is justly proud or Its groat net of
emancipation. It abed its blopd and ex
pended its treasure freely to give liberty
to four millions of human beings, and it
would ngnin encounter many dangers be
fore it would sco that work undone. For
this reason, if for no other, it is now in
cumbent on Its citizens to Intcrpnsa and
roscuo tho colored raco from the disasters
that must Insuo If tho policies of the pres

About two o'clock that night two men
wcro seen on tho streets driving a soriol

at suiirlso yesterday morning four men

they had gono In tho direction of Water

bv Messrs. William E. Ulnlr (city mnrsliHl,)

Ills suffrage; will bo permanently safe
when thu colored voto divides; never
when wielded unitedly as n caste. To di
vide Is to assent to llio forco of reason

dlvido is to respect tho forco of law rather
than rely on tho law oi lorco. To dlvido
is to accept thu mutual good offices of n
social state rather than encounter any ar
ray of enmities that cannot Intend in mu
tual los. To divide is to recognize that
there Is somewhat else in this world bo

infatuated will sacrifice, nil of llfo nnd Its
yearnings to an intolerance tints cun

If It shnll go to ditferent parties as Indi

Hut if It refuses to do so, and sets thoelnim
of raco above nny of tho intorosts of so

At this part of tho ganio the counte

togivo up all thoughts of escape, and to
inako up their minds to sutler thu penally
of tho law (if tl'oy could not by somo In
genious trick m image lo break jail). Their
arms having been taken, llioy wore placed
in tno buggy, and, w th their captors be
foro and behind, turned townrd Florence.
Just above Grnvolly Springs tho party
was joined by ono of tho niaiiv ubluuitoiis
candidates now canvassing the county, nnd
further on by the Marshal of Athens and
his companion. Tho prisoners, who wcro
elegantly dressed, expressed much annoy
nhco at tlio beat and dust, seeming not to
caro much for nny thing else.
Florcnco turned out en masse as tho
party rodo in town. Much excitement
provnilcd.
At night it culminated in tho bailing,
Tlio jail being Insecure, Sheriif Hudson
had summoned eight men in addition to
the jailor to guard tho prisoners. About
! midnight a great crowd cama to the jail
anu demanded tlio keys, ino guard re
fused to givu them up and fired on tlio
mou. it is said mat tho nro was returned.
At any rato tho jail doors wero broken
open nnd tlio guard disarmed. Tho cell
wherein Tom Ulurk and tho robbers wero
confined wcro also broken into, and tho
three men taken out and carried immedi
ately to on adjoining square, und hanged
by tlio neck until thoy wore dend. Tlio
threo wero suspended from n treo which
stands In tho rear of tho site of the old
Mnsonic lodgo.
In tho morning tho citizens
found them there. Ono was
iduntitiea as Tom Ularl; : ono
fool that no distempered leaders, won to 1 was a short, stalwart man, with tho initials
wild ambition, shall thrust forward thoso
whoso blood born ol tho burning sunsiiino
thrills at tho touch of passion, whoso brain
turbid with memory of n.nny wrongs
leaps nt the promise of retaliation, to vio
lent nsscrtloii of a black republic over tho
ruin of somo dismantled state, Tho ap
peal to raco may mean all this, it can
novor mean n regulnted freedom or a well
ordered community. Nor is this exclu
sively u question bred of color. Tho samo
would befall any other ruco that should
iiggregutusuch isolation and casto organi
zation in a mixed society. Is not our his
tory already full full of Illustration on
this point, where only charges wero al
legoi without any sufficient warrant In
fact? Havo wo not seen tho prejudices of
tlio whole community sought to bo ar
rnved against tlio Celtic race and tho Ger
man race under that pretext? Have not . life,

F. It. nnd a star in Indian ink on his right
arm and two hearts pierced by nn arrow
on his left hand j and ono is supposed to
bo Gibson. Wo understand that ono
of tho robbers directed his portion of the
$306 in money, which was found on their
persons, to bo sent to his sister, Miss Kato
Schilce, of Indianapolis, Indiana. Tho
man who attempted to escape, wus shot by
somo person unknown, recaptured and
hung with tlio others. It is the opinion of
j;r. liannum, who examined his wounds,
that death would havo resulted from tho
pistol-shot. Tho younger robber marched
up boldly to tho tr"o nnd requested tho ex
ecutioners to hold him up nnd drop him,
instead of drawing him up. Tho prayeis
of Clar,'f wero agonizing, nnd were heard
by thtf'citizens living near. Clark is said
to havo killed sixteen men during his
thu most violent local convulsions proceed
ed from expressed apprehensions of such
antagonism to our democrotic estate.
Has it not been cupublo to break down
great national parties and givu ephemeral
power to eouutur organization it may uu
ii'stihied then that whilst our people aro
strong enough to protect tho black man
against other intciferunce, they may not
bo equal to llio emergency ot protecting
him against himself when liu spurns thu
liberty that has boen wrought out for
him oiul sinks it in tlio vassalago of race.
To become intolorcnt of freo speech in ono
of his own color, as recently ut Cincin
nati; to insist on denial of civil rights to
others by way of security for hinuelf, as
now in Arkansas; to Know no nailing
placu between llio condition of slave and
thu assertion of mastery as shown in South
Carolina, is to destroy tlio very argument
on which his own" liberty rests.
When held resnonslblo for having con
ducted thu colored raco at tho south to tho
edgu of such cinorguncy as now confronts
it, tho response vouchsafed by tho admin
tration is that In all it has dono It ha! but
reflected thu will ot thu north. If tills bo
irue, and whether truu or false, does it not
impose a dotiblu duly on northern men, to
correct such administration, and dismiss
from power a party which has no imperil
led thu sltua'.ion. If knowing how fla
grant has been tho overture to tho bad pas
sions of a raco not yet Inured to Bull-con
trol, they may doubt its power to extricate
Usui f from th'u coils thrown around it, does
not Immunity demand that they should
lako in hand themselves the rescue? if
by permitting a great political organiza
tion to bo diverted to such base uses they
hnvo already endangered what that wus
designed to savo, does not truu eourngo
call for a suvcranco? A distinguished
colored orator has passionately exclaimed
that for his raco thu republican parly was
llio deck all olso tho tea. Hut when thu
ship is headed upon thu breakers, and tho
lite boat puts on, would any inn a mad
man refuso its safety ? Liberalism is that
lifeboat. It has cut a drift from tho de
sperate venture on which republicanism
has been driven, and oilers curtain means
of rcseuo. Heboid tho dulivorancu It has
already eflcctcd, and trust confidingly to
its further promise. Consider, likowiso, its
noble platform, and you will thoro detect
nothing that docs not brcntho n truo spirit
of reconciliation, nothing that docs not
cuyofully guard tlio settlements of tho past
nothing that does not givu nsstironco of a
pure government, exercising its functions
strictly" within llio limits of tho consti
tution. And if, after careful scrutiny, you
shnll deem il will well to commit the chief
magistracy of this nation to that honest,
patriotic statesman presented for your suf
fragu by tho liberal and democratic parties,
1 feel every confidence that at tho closo of
his administration you will find no linger
ing animosity of race or section to mar tho
harmony of it restored union.
