. Our white Radical fcllow-citizeas at
tue couth are disposed to ccraplaiu of
tho vrant 0$. interest manifested by
fc'oatiievuers ia the mutter of -registration.
Especially is tliis tlie case in certain
to'wns.aud'distiicts of North Carolina,
where, by tl.is conduct on the part of
tiio white men, the mack men register
a majority of voters. These Liberty,
Union and Kouaiity saints are beeoin-
ins somewhat exercised at tho i: situa-
wt-ijon," which we were under the iui.
't'essipn hud been generally "' accept
ed." 'Xhey now assert with disatis-
- faction, if not alarm, that as the nc
throes predominate, to that . extent will
tbey Gil the oSces, National, State and
Municipal. This course of reasoning,
is, to Bay the least, for ' Radicals, very
profound. And it follows as a conse
quence that it is equally sound logic.
Emanating from a source from which
we seldom derive anything of a sound
or truthful character, we know not at
which to express most, surprise the
proposition laid down, cr the objection
manifested toward the matter ia hand.
If we understand the plan of recon
struction, and we. arc disposed to thiuk
we do, for the "Wilsons, Kellers and
Tattcus, have spared neither' time, la
bor, or expense, to specially enlighten
us on this wonderful subject, which
we lake to mean Liberty, Union and
3 'utility before the haw, inasmuch as
nil men are created equal. "We were
disposed, at .one time, to entertain an
opinion slightly adverse to this fact,
and the people, of the South contested
it, but i h nothing new in history
now, that the question was decided
It follows, as a matter of course, that
the doctrine of equal rights is ortho
dox J to hold to the contrary opiuion
is political heresy. The ready ac
knowledgement of an error is one of
the aest features in the character of
an honest m::n. Indeed it is honesty

Theu it is
i3 far as the
united ciTerts of black men can make
it so. ,-lladical licpublicanism teaches
the negro that he is loyal, and as such
must be a Republican. The negro un
derstands it, that, to be a Republican,
one must be a ne?ro. As a rule that
works both ways, a negro is a loygl
Republican a loyal Republican is a
negro. This, tlicy are ready to assert
at tne ballot box, ana tnose wuo .aave
been incst active iu bringing about
universal suffrage and equality, will
soon witness the results of their theo
ry, practically demonstrated by negro
office holders iu every position through
out the . South. They will also find
that the negro has need for his white
brother, only so far as his ballot goes.
White men may vote for .negroes, -but
negroes will not vote for white iuen-uif
they know it."
Tho Yankee is proverbial for his
presumption, but he presumes too
much, when ho expects to control a
negroe's vote, simply because he is a
Yankee. "When the negroes of the
South were led to distrust their old
masters, they learned to suspect all
white men of enmity toward them.
Tbey have no contempt for the white
Southerner that they will not exhibit
lor the Northerner, when ho ceases to
subserve their political interests.
To obtain and perpetuate political
power, the Radicals have cultivated
the negro have inflamed his passions,
and kindled withiu him a prejudice to
which he was before a stranger. These
will work their results. All the mate
rial for a war of races is at hand. Its
inauguration is a question of time.
Events will determine its delay or ex
pedition. Of this we may rest assur
ed it is inevitable. It is a calamity
to be dreaded, but one that will not be
a1, evted. The state of things which al
ready render it necessary, has been
produced by these very men who, had
ing that they have no claims that a
negro is bound to prefer, are now cry
ing out that the vegrocs will fill the
oiiices with negroes. -This great Re
construction scheme, under which we
arc now operating, had its origin in
the belief that tho negroes would fill
the offices with Yankees. The attaiu-
mont 01 tins end was desirable, even
at the expense of a war of races. And
the end justifying the means, the Rad
ical party has encouraged, aye, hoped
for it. IC Is now seen that the exter
mination of the Southern people would
not benefit the Yankees in this partic
ular point of view, and hence it is to
that extent, and to that extent only,
less desirable on the part of that race
of puritanic philanthropists.
- Gentlemen of the Republican par
ty, we have the honor to again salute
At the mass meeting of colored men
at Rocky Mount;-on Saturday last,
Mr. O'llara, a golden descendant of
" Afric's sunny clime," " opened the
ball " with the stereotyped phrases of
attempting to define, fairly and square
ly, without vent or bias, the Republi
can plattorm oud the Democratic plat-. '
form, distinctly stating the differences
between them, and leaving itr to the
good judgment of his. hearers on
which thqt should stand. -
He enumerated the benefits the col
ored people had received at the hands
of the Republican party assured them
that it was a party based ou the broad
grounds of civilization, progress, equal
ity and liberty their present condition
of freemen being entirely owing to
Radical legislation. .He advised them
to work, live frugally and save their
money for the purpose of enabling
themselves to educate their children,
and be independent to avoid the en-u.i.
remarking, parenthetically, that
the cuhr carts, . had more attrac
tions for many, than he had ; that
