"OUI STILT TELL IS." IN A STREET CAR. L Jni L.zI.osr came swinging on a half run round the corner of Stste Street to catch an up-town car. "A red car," his friend Saxon had told him ; and there it went full speed out of sight just as he came in view of it. An east wind was blowing, as it generally is blowing in Boston, and Jim Mallory shivered, and sneezed, and drew up his coat-collar, while he anathematized the Hub of the Universe and her east winds, as a Gothamit, was bound to do. Presently, wat with ahe dust in his eyes and the well-known delightful regularity of that city, Jim got "turned round," as the country folk my, and for a few minutes couldn't tell for the life of him which was up town or which was down town. "Confound the place !" he began, when all at once it seemed as if all the cars in the city suddenly appeared. There they were, red cars and green cars and blue cars, bearing down upon him in swift confusion. He hailed the first, and shouted where he wanted to go. The driver shook his head, and pointed backward in the most indefinite manner ; and there six cars behind him. He hailed the second, and went through with the same humiliating ex perience. He hailed the third, he hailed the fourth, and all at ones came to his senses at the fifth, and discovered they were every one going the wrong way, and he himself all out of the way on the wrong street. He breathed an exclama tion more emphatic than polite, and dashed through to Tremont Street just in time to eatch the ar he was afet Jim was a handsome fellow ordinarily, but you never would have suspected it now. To begin with, he had a cold in his head ; and for "A cold in the head What can be said, Uglier, stupider, more ill-bred?" Being a blond man, too, nmade it wor, as every blond, be they man or woman, ean testify; for flnAushed and swollen eyelids and excoriated nostrils raow off to most dismal disadvantage beside a blond's "hair of yellow or beard of'gold. And thea the thin tissues, the light skis, which winc evra asrr.ia ent1 Well, besides a cold in the head, Jim Mallory was eovered with dust from his head to his feet. Then, became of the cold in his had, he had drawn his coat collar up aryund his ears, and, begms of a general uneomfortable aonditiou, he had drawn his shoulders nearly up to his ears. And the soamething had happen ed to his hat. I don't know what it was He didn't know what it was, or he ever wonuld havere sat there right in the fase of those flve girls, looking like ech a Guy, without trying to remedy it It was something between a cruth and a twist, which, taked together with his general muy appearance, gave him the aspeet of a forlorn and seedy old fellow at odds withhimself and with the world, This was a climax for a young man who ted of the Groman in Avenuedom, ad who was spoken of usually by all fminine Avenasedom as "so di~iwue!" And Ithere st those ive girls without a snpi eionof these fcts in his history. Five Virls as ptty as girls need to be, Igh ing and chatering like--like--well, like ire girls. I don't think thee is any 1 compsrIson that will erve as well as that after all. There they sat, laughing and chattering, perfectly heedlms . the rforlorn and seely old fellow doubled up in the opposite carner. Such things as he found out For there was nobody del in the car but another forlor and medy old fellow at the end of the seat. And what heed did these girls think Swould be given to their chatter by these forlon old fellewa? "How do you get your hair into such a lovely uff?" inquired a brunette of a blonde. "Why, I roll it up into arls, and then just pass a coarse oomb through it. But yours is lovely too, I'm sure. How do yoe do yours "Boll it on a heated slate-pencil." "Oh, but that hurts the hairso. I put mine into crimping-pin," said another. And still another; "I braid mine and prem it." And still another: "Common hair pins, I think, are the best of al. But then one looks so like a fury in any pine Then the branett gave a little giggle "Oh, girls, I put my hair into pins onesthoe great crimping-pins Lou uses. It was one morning when it rained, and thought I was safe from visitors. I was going to the opera in the evening with Will Hems, and I want ed to look very nice, you know. Well, tfere I set in the parlor, practicing my last singingleman, and never heard the bell nor a footstep until some one cromed the threshold. Who do you suppose it was?" And the little dark head buried itself in a little Persian muff to smother another giggle. "We can't gess Who was it?" burst out the other four voices in the greatest excitement Up came the head from its temporary hiding, the pretty face all a-blush, the dark eyes all a-dazzle with laughter, the fizzed hair a little the worse for the Per sian mud "Oh, girls! it was Will Hem with Lang ford-Laugford just home from Paris, you knowl" "W'hat did you do?" from the chorus of four. "Oh, I didn't die, and I couldn't run away; for there they were, right before me: so I made the best of it, and laughed, for it was funny, and then I snatched our George's Scotch cap from the table where he had flung it that morning, and cover ed up my steel horns and my ugliness in a twinkling. "Plucky, I declare!" muttered Jim Mal lory, inside of his coat-collar. ' Will said I desved a Captaincy for my coolness and strategy. Will is al ways making his bad puns, you know," concluded the fair speaker. And then the others took up the tale, and not one but had some gleeful misad venture to relate. And in this relating, what mysteries of rats and mice in wa terfalls, of knots and coils and curls and crimps, were not revealed to Jim Mal lory as he sat there unsuspected in his corner! It was as good-no it was a great deal better than a play to him. But presently the car filled, and the headless voices hushed, and the play was over. And presently appeared 'the condifator, and-Jim began rummaging his pocket for scrap. S"What! Nomoney! Wherein thunder i my pocket-book?"' he almost said aloud. His pocket-book was gone, probably picked when he was frantieally hailing those sir ears. Yes, his pocket-book ws ,gaoe But he must have some loose scrip sbout him, certainlyt ad with all the blood in his rseins rushingupinto his face, Jim Mallory continued his sereh - fkm e it ess b, for not a pemny, even, coId he nd. Here was a pretty lx for a mran to b in. A stra&ger, too; and juet then Jim aught a sight of himself in a little poc~k et-mirror he had turned out with other effects din his searching, and discovered , what a forlorn-lookin object he was, and aconsequently, how much more dificult , and diageeable was his positiont What upon earth was he goingdtodo? What upon earth was he going to say? He had a quick brain, usually frtile in I expedients, but the ignominou fact. of Ithe present ease were too much for him He had heretofore declared, with rather a grand manner, that a man should rule, Icircumstances; and here were the most contemptible ohmstanm o rauing him with a rod of iron. "Ifit wasn'tfor se lye girls, now! he thought But he might as wedl have sid: "If it waruYtr ~;that condtod" ad a greet deal bktr, jor there was slowly but seadiy ma&. ing bis way toward the lower end of the ear, with a wary eye for all whom ~ caught napping or negligent And there were those five girl with there tickets fluttering in prompt readinsdl All at once at this juncturer b ame oam ou of a pair of. the softest, teaderest eyes he had everen fixed upon him with a look of shy omiaeration. It was one of those five girls. It was the brunette, who curled her hair over a slate-pencil, and dramatised her destab So, she had been watching him, She had seen his empty pockets, and was moved to pity thereby, spite of his forlorn and seedy appearance. He felt the blood go tingling up into his face again, but before he had time to know whether he was glad or srry there was a pull at the bell, the car stopped, and two or three people were getting in. And in the crowd and confusion up started the litle brunette, and nodding over her shoulder at her companions, made a hurried rush for the door. Jim Mallory, itting there, saw once more those pitying brown eyes, and then, as her garments brushed past him, he felt a little ungloved hand thrusting something into his hand. His fingers closed overthis "something" mechanically. For a moment he could see nothing in the hurry and coafusion, but there was a near, faint scent of violet, which sud denly vanished with a soft rustle of silk. He looked up then, and she was gone. He looked down-and there in his palm was--"Why, bless my soul, a car-tieketl" as Jim himself exclaims whenever he tells the story. And to follow Jim's words at this point, which will tell the story bet ter than anybody else's words: "There had that little angel, under the disguise of crimped hair and a lot of other non sense, taken note of my misfortune, and made her little plan of relief, which she carried out, like the strategist she was, at the very climax of my desperation, and when the stir and confusion about us would cover every movement, Wasn't it splendid, though? How many girls do you suppose would have done that for such a muff as I looked to be that day? For I toll you, Tom"-this was to Tom Saxon-"that I did look something aw ful. What with those confounded cotton samples from your ofice sticking to me, and the dust, and the cold in my head, and a smash in my hat, I was about as seedy a specimen as you ever saw." And Tom thought he might have been. But out of one dilemma Jim Mallory had stepped fairly into another. As that "little angel in crimped hair and a lot of other nonsense" stepped out of the ear, after the, performance of her impulsive action-which was really a very pretty action-something entered Jim's heart which he had no will nor wish to banish; but, as I say, it was out of one dilemma into aMcthem-"out of the frying pan into the fire." Tom Saxon would laugh, for all the clew he had was a namethat han dreds of girls in Boston owned. And the the way be got this was at the moment of her vanishing, when the astonished four tried out in chorus: "What's Molly getting off here for?" In vain Tom had brought him face to face with some half a dozen Mellys of his own aoquintance. From emeh Jim Mal lory had tuned with a sigh of di~ap pontme t. Not one of them belonged to his angel in erimped hair.

He who wears ldelity to that Constitution swears that he will respect and uphold such Equality of Political Rights, at least until the Con stitution shall in this respect have been radically changed again. The existing politi al contest is a struggle between those who mean to maintain "the Con stitution as it is," and those who seek by violence and fraud to subvert it. Now as heretofore, the citadel of op pression and wrong is an exaggeration of State Bights According to the Wolra and The uening Post, the enemies of Equal Rights and the Constitution which uphold them have only to get poe session of the machinery of a State, and they may rob, maim, burn,andalay loyal Unionists with perfect impunity. The Nation has no right to protect its faith ful citises ; the State connives at and facilitates their enemies' crimes : so they have no choice but death or an ignomi niens submission while those enemies consummate their nefarious designs We protest that thisis consistent neither with the spirit nor the letter of that grand Charter of our National existence which expressly says : Am. VL 2. "This Constitution, and the laws which shall be made in pursuance thsrees * . * shal be the supreme lw of the land, and the judges in every 8ate shall be bound there by, anything in the Constitution or law of any 8tate to the contrary notwithstanding." "AENrmrrT XV. 4 1. The right of citizens of the United States, or by any State, on a count of re, color, or previous condition of servitude. "§ . Congrs shal have the powoer to enforce this article by appropriaes lsleston." -That there is a wide-spread and formidable conspiracy to subvert these vital Constitutional guaranties by violance, terrorism and bloodshed, is as certain as sunrise. The active agents of this conspiracy are in part the mid night raiders commonly known as Ka Klux, by whom a murderer was recent ly liberated from jail in the very pre sence of the Kentucky Legislature at Frankfort, by whom the late murders and arsons at Meridian, Miss., were per petrated, and her Mayor driven into exile without even a charge that he had done wrong, but simply that the Ku Klux might All his place with a man af ter their own heart; and it is in fall view of these and many kindred crimes that the Evuning Post commends "The simple exercise of forbearance and kindness, respecting the local independence of the commuiaty, and throwing upon it the atire resposibility for its own internal condition, while doing all that can be done, withoutattack Ing this independence, to diffuse intelligense and patriotism among its members. "It is this remedy for local disorders which the Cosatatiton of the United States contem tlate, and ts alon The ation is one in all its relations to foreign nations; and the growth of trade and of the national spirit, as our common history lengthens, makes its unity more and more coe and solid. The moral power ot th wholoe ation over each of itscens. tituent commnitis is imme se for good; ad, if this is propgery exerted, it becomes imuposible that social disorder sbould ist longanywhere. The natral condition of body through which healthy bood is eirlating freely, and whose leadi ng members are in vigorous activity, is one of health; and the loeal harts and a which at timea vimt parts of it soon gle way.

Here you see the Kt-ilu and their abetoorare treated a "the Southern people"--the Unionists being 'niggers,'" 'salawag," and of no account. Being unarmed, poor, and obliged to labor for their daily bread, they cannot eareer on horseback, each one a loomotive armory romw midnight till daybreak ; so they must be murdered without remedy. Judge Pryor's harge, Mayor Sturgis's statement Senator Moore's piteous nar rative would illumine The Poel's logic, but they would not help to convert its readers to ;Sham Democracy : so they are excluded from its columns. The Ku-Klux conspiracy is designed to carry the South for the Sham Demo cracy in 1872 by a terrorism so pervad ing and systematic as to drive half the BacEksfrom'the polls or constrain othem to vote the ticket they abhor. Thus several States have been earried in 1870 : thus it is intended to carry nearly or quite every Southern State in Il And unless some protection can be afforded bt the Union, thus most of those States will be carried, with The Poet's tacit ap provl. To show the terrible power of the machinery invoked, we call attention to the vote of Louisiau in 1868 : Louisiana was fully restored to the Union. She had a Republican Governor and Legislsture, elected by large majori ties. She had 84,431, Colored voters to 4,5199 White registered in 1867. She gave early in '68, 64,901 votes to Henry C. Warmoth (Republican) for Govern or, to 38,046 to James G. Taliaferro [Dem.] And yet, at the Presidential Election of that year, she was made to return Seymour and, Blair Electors by 80,225 votes to 33,263 for!

No one who reads them can doubt that the State was carried for Seymour in '68 by terorrizing the Republicans into stay ing away from the polls or voting the Democratic ticket. So Georgia was made to vote the same way, though by a pes sure less generally applied. Her oicial returns show the following aggregate: 1867.

In other words: The Republicans dared and were permittd to vote in about half the Counties ; while at most of the polls in the other hslf, they either were repelled from the ballot-boxes or made to vote the Democratic ticket, while the few who at some polls voted the Grant Eltors did so.at tim peril of their lives.
