Tho OtH and 7th sections of tho late
"Reconstruction Act" road as follows
Heo. 0. That before tho states of Vir
clnla. Misslsslnnl and Texas shall bo ad
mltted to a representation In congress.
their several legislatures, which may
hereafter lawfully organized, shall ratify
the fifteenth article' which has been pro
posed by congress to thesoveral states as
an amendment to tho constitution of tho
8eo. 7. That tho proceedings In any of
tho said states shall not be deemed nnai,
or operate as a complete restoration of
tuo same, until ineir action renjit:uujjr

This act, enormous, tyrannical and
wicked, is tho work of an American non
The states of Virginia, Mississippi and
Texas shall surrender all right to regu
late HilfTrngc among themselves, and ac
cept, at tho bidding of congress, tho odt
out fifteenth amendment, before they
flhull bo admitted to representation In
congress. And when this Is done, they
are not Insured representation. Then
as now, tho wbolo thing will depend up
on the humor or necessities of a corrupt
nnd whimsical radical congress. If the
fact betray Itself that tho negro element
Is susceptible of democratic control, or
that tho continued ascendency of radl
calls in Is otherwise Imperiled, why thou
of course, a compliance with all the con
ditions of tho reconstruction act will
avail nothing. Tho states will still be do

construction, , Ifcars he jjood nense and
Intelligence of the' people, and will al
ways provide itself a.' loop-hole of. escape
from a compliance, on Its part, with any
terms it may prescribe. Timo and again
tho people of the south have accepted
tho conditions of thure-uulon prescribed
for them; but what has their acceptance
amounted to? New conditions are pre
sented, and wfll continue to be presented
until, the south shows uaiuuMtionable
ovidenco of being radicalized, or until
an indignant people hurl the tyrant1 and
scoundrels, makingsuch conditions, from

faying, when these states are' assured
beyond contingency to the radical party,
they wlirbe admitted to representation
in congress, and not until then."
finch Is radicalism in tho year 1689.

A number of the best physicians are at

This sad case Is connected unpleas
antly with the ecclesiastical war of last

priests, whose removal was tho result,
and In one Instance the death of one of
thorn (Dr Dunne), whoso proud heart
could not brook the supposed dlsgraco'df

death caused such an Intense feeling,
among his Hock and tho Catholic people
