AT Democratic mass meeting
held la Clarke county, last week,
some patriot, with far more zeal
than sense, offered the following

"Viefory is generally personified
by tbe picture of a buxom-Ioobing
female partially clad in a ch shirt,
and brandishing a sword. If she is
now to be followed by such a rum
looking old bird as that, the auia-
zon will bave other cause to blush,
besides ber scanty raiment.
Wk learn that efforts are being
made to induce certain gentlemen
to enter tbe political field in opposi
tion to the Democratic nominees
and that certain other gentlemen
are making efforts to get them
selves u induced " to do likewise.
We do not know bow many backers
either of these movements has, bat
we opine that a medium-sized blan
ket would cover them all. Any
citizen who desires to run for office
lias an unquestionable right to do
so: provided be Las not entered
into an agreement, expressed or
implied, with any party of bis fellow-citizens
that be .would support
their choice of a man to fill said
office. If be has sought office at
the bands of a party, and, failing to
secure a nomination, is either run
ning himself, or openly or secretly
encouraging another to run, in opposi
tion to the nominees of that party,
then be is recreant to bis pledges,
and is, in plaia words, a traitor.
"Where a man has sought no favors
from a party, and has not partici
pated in its councils, be has a right
to offer for office singly, or to join
with any number of bis fellow-citizens
in an attempt to elect such
persons as they may seo fit. In so
doing,be violates no compact, and is
entitled to the respectful attention
asd considerate judgment of all
fair-misded men. Dut every good
citizen, before entering the political
arena, will first consider the cbarao
ter of the men against whom he
will bave to contend, and also that
of those opoii whom he must rely
for support. If npon the former
side be fiud nearly or quite all of
bis most respectable neigh bors.com
prising the intelligence, proM'y and
property of the community and
npon the other only the ignorant,
in moral, nou-taxpaying element,
with barely a corporal's guard of
malcontents and disappointed office-seekersthe
worthy citizen will
not take long to decide that the
post of honor it a private station ;
and it bis convictions or prejudices
prevent bis supporting the former,
bis self-respect will at least forbid
affiliation with the latter. This is
a eaodid, non-partisan view of a
case that may soon be piesented to
the independent readers consitlera
. ttou.
With feelings of mingled regret
and ffjvprebenfifon, we pcrcieve a ;
disposition on the part of some
gentlemen wbo have always been
known a"s truer Democrats or Con
servatives, to make the negro a
prominent argument in their polit
ical djscftspioua, We would s;y to
these gentlemen that they are
playing with fire. Iiet tbe negro
alone. The Democratic party does
not need Li in. The Republican
partyjound trim a heavier burden
than Siubad found the Old Man of
ihe Sea, and has abandoned him.
The negroes as a class bave at lart
accepted the inevitable, and are
willing to stay out of politics; the
franchise has been to them but
Dead-sea fruft, and they no longer
expect, even if tbe.v desire, to exer
cise control In this country by
means of it. Tbe negro as a labor
er is a success ; as a servant he is
altogether lovely; bnt as a politician
he is loud and noisome ; as a ruler
he is sfmply insufferable. The
carpet-bagger was a much shrewd
er, smarter party manipulator thau
tbe average Independent," of to
day; bnt Sambo proved too many
(or even Sam Slick, and the temple
of their glory is palled down, and
"Ichabotl" is written over tbe por
tal where once the Loyal League
held nightly conclave. Old John
Brown's soul is not deadliowcver,
bnt sleepeth and those Southern
men who seek its resurrection bad
better pause to consider whether
they will be able to control tbe ele
merits that they may set in motion.
AS 8 political factor, tbe negro has
been virtually cancelled let him
not be reintroduced into tbe gov
ernmental problem in Madison
county. For it was written long ago,
that "whoso sowetb tbe wind shall
reap the whirlwind.''
SOX. O. B. SIXGLETOX.
This distinguished gentleman was
List week unanimously nominated
by the Democratic people of Mad
ison county, in convention assem
bled, for tbe exalted position of U.
S. Senator, to succeed B. K. Bruce.
In presenting tbe claims of this
(her owu) pure and patriotic States
man, Madison connty is not un
mindful of the noble services ren
dered nnto the Stato by other
prominent and deserving aspirants
hose eminent qualities of bead
and heart make them fit competi
tors for the high distinction and
honor of representing at the nation
al capital, the sovereignty of our
proud and aspiring commonwealth.
She is not wanting in appreciation
of the valor, wisdom and counsel of
the gallant Barksdale, whose slo
gan, in the time of trial, sounded
far and near, until it made tbe very
welkin ring with its patriotic fervor
and manly defiance. Barksdale is
a worthy son of Mississippi, and is
co-heir with Singleton to ber emol
uments and honors. - But with all
due deference to him, Singleton's
seniority and almost continuous
experience in the national legisla
ture should, we think, give him
preference. Nor, does Madison
slight tbe nodding plume of that
chevalier of Mississippi, 13. C. Wal
thall, a name already inscribed high
upon the roll of fame, and cherished
throughout the State. His touc'j is
maguetic.and his influence great,
but he has long since abandoned
politics, and reaps a rich harvest
from a gigantic corporation that
feeds mercilessly npon our vitals.
In this be bas bis reward. Tbe
party is under no especial obligation
to him, aud we do not think bis
claims npon tbe people's gratitude I
can be compared to those of Singlos
ton or Barksdale. In Col. Single
ton we find combined all the requi
sites for a model Southern Senator,
viz : morality, courage, ability, fi
delity, experience and honesty. He
possesses tbe conrage of a Roman
ith the zeal of a Spartan, while
bis fidelity is such, that neither the
gold of Ci cesns nor the seductive
blandishments of political promises
could induce him to betray tbe con
fidence of bis constituency. Oue
so panoplied and so endowed de
serves the highest honors a virtuons
and intelligent people can bestow.
Col. Singleton has served ns long
and laboriously. The record shows
that be has always been at his post.
His political foresight espied tbe
evil of the electoral commission,
aud his patriotism shone out in bis
endeavors to defeat that stupen
dous fraud, against an overwhelm
ing party opposition. Custom has
mado it within the order of things
to honor those wbo bave grown old
in the sorvice of their country.
Will MisMssippi follow this beanti
ful lesson f We believe it is the
will of the people of the State, that
Col. Singleton shall be the next U.
S. Senator from Mississippi. lie
has done the work of a trne patriot.
In a long public life, he has in not
one single instance fallen short of
his constituents' highest expecta-
tions. We nil love Iiim. Let us
eontinue to honor bim. and by elec
ting bim to the Senate, place the
. '
crown or the people s approoauon
on the bead that bas grown gray

Mil. Editor : If race prejudice is
so strong that refined and intelli
gent white men cannot make laws
Without prejudice to the negro,
what would an unrefined and igno-
rant necfo. with nil fos inculcated
hate and envy, look like, making
laws for a party composed almost
exclusively of white people 1 By
bad government the whites have all
to lose, the Retr.ro, nothing. As to
policy: Is it policy to give a child
a dangerous weapon because he
cries for it? Or is it any evidence
of a want of affection to refuse to
do so f These are questious which
the Negropuolists will please an
swer. Tbittiiful James.
To the Editor of the Citizen :
We bear it rumored that a con
glomerated mats of amalgamation
and miscegenation called indepen
dents, have combined with a cer
taiu element of the Radical party
to elect Bomebody to office, wbo
tailed to get a place on the regular
Domocratio ticket. We warn the
colored people in time, that like
Ames, these fellows will soon re
quire the blood of twenty or thirty,
or perhaps a hundred negroes, to
get national sympathy and give
them a big send off. Colored peo
ple, if you are wise, you will have
nothing to do with thein. Their
promises will prove to yon the
apple of Sodom, that will turn to
ashes on your hps. If you are
friendly to us, you aro welcome to
the Democratic vineyard, and when
you bav,e proven your faith by your
labor, yon shall become partakers
ofourfrnit. To expect more will
but tend to show how unreasonable
and idiotic you are.

Mr. Editor : Is it not possible
for the human mind to be in great
travail and tbe deepest throes of
parturition and still be delivered of
a very diminutive production T Such
an nccouchoment, I think, took place
in Canton on last Saturday nrnrn
iog, when the bantjiag "Negrophil
isin" first saw the light of day, and
was dressed in its swaddling clothes
by ibe American Citizes. The first
fling of this newly coined monstros
ity is at chronic office-seekers. The
presumption would be, amongst
men of proper political-ethics, that
'-Common Sense" was not an aspir
ant for office. Bat is it not barely
possible, Mr. Editor, that this man
may have a chronic desire to hold
on to some office he already fids, for
tear, it Ire los that, his cake will be
dough? The teuder regard for Ihe
poor negro he vaunts so Ireely, bad
its origin in the party lie claims to
represent, aud its honest aud oft
repeated pledges have niiscairied
by reason of just such men as he et
id omne tienus. Is there a man with
in the limits oi our county wuu
snch uncommon tense as to deny that
the negroes aro disorganized aud
leaderless t I assert that they are,
and defy proof to the contrary. I
also assert that the greater part, If
not all, of the negro population in
our midst stand to-day ready and
willing to cooperate with our peo
ple, it accorded proper representa
tion, in establishing harmonious
political relations that will briug
peace to our distracted country.
Only by a division of races poliii
cally can extremes bo avoided nnd
any benign auspices imparted to
our political status. Time will vin
dicate the truth of these assertions.
I also bold ttiat the negro race
knocked at the door of the Demo
cratic conventions on the 5;b nod
7tb of July, for admission to parti
cipate in its deliberation, through a
"gentleman of character and intel
bet," whose "eagle" can spread its
wines wide enongli to embrace some i
dusky plumage. This noble Roman,
R- C. Smith, stands to day the bold
lest champion of human rights aud
civil liberty within our county. He
only, of all ber pons, had the nerve,
in the face of tho rampant bull
dozing fraternity, to rise in the
midst and dare to speak the truth,
however unwholesome, though the
very heavens should fall to devour
bim. He did not bide bis utterances
behind a nom de plume, but bearded
the lion in his den.
Tbe Deroociatic conventions al
Iuded to not only closed their doors
acainst tbe negro by a resolution
excluding all but dyed in the wool
and not to fade Democrats, but it
dropped the negro like a hot potato,
when it set aside Phil Sanders, who
claims always to bave been a Demo
crat, whom "they admitted to feilow
sbin. and wbo canvassed with them.
A clear race line was drawn by this
deed, at a time, too, whieb was so
opportune for a belter course of
action. This proceeding, however,
was "perfectly iu keeping with the
fitness of things and party usage,"
where men of narrow views const i
tnte a party. Though they had the
undisputed light to act in this way,
asau independent organization, yet
many men who think that they pos
sess "common sense," believe that
they acted nnwisely. Common
sen hp, however, wo must remem
ber, " not unfrequenTiy lias very
little to do with snblunary affairs.
anil the human intellect is often so
subtle as to sever and divide a hair

Query Is the "tag-rag and bob
tail" clique of Canton and the city
"riff-raff" any more formidable or
detestable than iis counterpart t.e.

I.. r..,.,i.t,.n i
may feel himself indebted, for he
must certainly feel in a more delect
able mood than the " riibt-or-ruiti
small fry," at whom he levels bis
besom of destruction.
Probably the people of mature
reasou may decide wbo the inalcon
j tents and sore brads may be, instead
I of this self-constitirted judge. If, as
the writer iv, be has "labored
continually to free the negro from
the blighting control of the carpet
bagger, and appealed to him by
every uefico known to human in
genuity, to join an eflort to stay the
! march of desolation and ruin," why
ttien, wnen mere is some nope ot
reclaiming the prodigal, turn your
bisete on him and leave the penitent
to the tender mercies of a rndo
stream of nefarious deviltry, as yon
would have it 1 Are yon afraid,
Mr. Common Sense, you might lose
something by an increase in the
numbers of the flock I
Our people need not be alarmed.
Radicalism, as the Mail says, is
"dead, damned, discharged f" Theie
will bo no such blast upon Jeffrey's
horn as this buncombe writer would
make yon believe. I know him
well, and he relies on the whi'e
voters of Madisou as much or more
than upon any colored votes ho may
receive. Don't be afraid to de
uounce packed conventions, or to
act in the interest of good and capa
ble men and good government, on
account of Ibis cry of ' wolf," for
neither the leaders nor the rank
and file of Radicalism, so called,
desire any reorganization tinder tho
old regime.
Anil now, Mr. Editor, after wad
ing throngh all the author's ''glit
tering generalities aud tiresome
platitudes," we come to the creme
de li creme, the key that unlocks
the cabinet of motives. Here is
tbe ring of the pirty lash: "All
honest and sensible Democrats will
fall into line and elect the present
nominees, good men and true, by an
unexampled majority. There will
be no liggards, no traitors."

CONGLOMERATED POLITICS.
Mr. Editor In view of the action
of the recent Democratic couven
tion, and tbe twaddle of some dis
gruntled individuals, who seek no
toriety by endeavoiing to conglom
erate in homogeneous races, whose
caste and political creeds are as
distinct as the religious of the Jew
and the Gentile, I deem it not im
modest to proffer some wholesome
advice. In the first place, permit
tue to credit the indignant bowl
against a Democratic convention
nominating exclusively trne and
tried. Democrats, to be entirely af
fected, and to have its origin in the
eccentricity of a few gentlemen,
whose abnormal pulse was quick
ened by tbe discovery of that genius
alone capable of revolutionizing
State aud national politics.
The elections of 1870 and 1878
placed in the bands of the Demo
cratic party the executive, judicial
aud legislative government ot tbe
State ot Mississippi and for tbe
present, at least, our old political
curse, the Republican party, is
wholly disorganized. This result is
more attributable to the nnity, su
perior intelligence, virtue and patri
otism of our own party, than to any
depletion or disaffection in the
ranks of our opponents. The con
demned principles and practices ol
the Republican party are held to by
the negro with the same tenacity
and veneration that be award
ed to tlieic four years ago. Cir
cumstanced as we are, tho su
premacy of the Democratic party
in Mississippi is a necessity. Its
destruction, amalgation, or division
into hostile factious, would alike
impair its efficiency and render an
acceptable administration next to
impossible. While its destruction
means a new and inexperienced
party, its amalgamation or division
into factions means more. It means
an appeal to the worst elements of
t he Republican party ! It means
the tyrannical sway of vaunted offi
cials ! It means the spoliation of
our party pride and prestige, and
tho eternal degradation of our
race t a
We ought, therefore, whatever
may happen, to fettle our disputes
and differences among ourselves.
We must invite no hostile, no alien
arm to support one taction as
against another. Tho victory of
oue taction over another, secured
by the aifl of our common enemy,
means the inevitable destruction of
both. We were united from in
stincts of sell-preservation ; now
he wisdom bought of experience
should teach ns to remain so, at
least for some time to come.
Let ns show a determination to
render fail lid. 1 service to tbe State,
and render fqnal and exact, justice
to all men and all classes, without
relinquishing one jot or tittle of our
(Militical oivi'd, end wo will sreme
to the party a long lease of power,
f and to the State, virtne, prosperity
: ami peace.
Hut, bir, when the party shall so
far forget its higb mission as to per
mit itself to bo made, the instrument
of elevating into power and influence
men who nave no other interest
thau to advance their personal for
tunes, a calamity will be upon us, in
the threatened presen 'e of which
we might well stand iu awe and dis
may. Our prostration has been great,
and cur heeds and demands in the
Inture will be many and varied;
bat just and wise policies, fearlessly
carried out by pure and patriotic
men, are what we want and not so
much twaddle about the negro,
strict party lines, and a general
conglomeration of conflicting creeds
and races, iu the face of all our bit
ter experience, and in the face of
history, reasou and common sense.
Let us hope that tbe buncombe
boom which burst npon us last
week, did no more damage in the
country thau it did here at borne,
where the cause of the itch is so
well known. Vigil.

A Yankee Opinion of the Nigger.
Lein.-irs (Inwn) Sentinel.
While the amiable idiocy that
prevailed in Congress during the
reconstruction days was at its
height, tbe nigger was enfran
chised. He was invested with tbe ballot,
on the pretty theory that he was a
man and a brother, with an infusion
of sand in his make up.
It was given to bim on tbe school
girl notion that affection for the
party that gave him his freedom
would make him its perpetual in
strument. But tho nigger is less serviceable
to the Republican party as a voter,
than he was as a slave.
He needs too much coddling too
much protection.
He cau only vote the Republican
ticket when surrounded by a cordon
ot Keruulican bayonets.
There is no grit in him.
There is more voting energy and
party Btrengtb in a dozen raw Irish
men than iu a thousand well fed
niggers.
There is not an ounce of Stalwart
ism in a ton of nigger.
The more nigger, tbe less
strength.
Asa slave, the picturesque mis
ery of tbe Digger was an unfailing
armory of party weapons. As a
fr euian. tbere is no romance iu
him cowardice is not romantic.
All over the South lie Is throwing
his ballot for rebel and traitors,
when he votes at all.
He is too cowardly to vote for bis
convictions, or too stupid to bave
convictions.
When Stalwarts get into power
in 1880, he must either be disfran
chised or compelled to vote right.
The free nigger is a fraud.

JT 18 AS ESTABLISHED FACT, THAT
Quinine or Chinchonidia will stop Chills,
and for this purpose there is no better
reinody. Bnt it is also an established fact
they do not remove the canse that pro
duces the chills. For If they did, the chills
woold not return on the 7th, 14th, 21st or
28th day. Then is it not money LOST to
attempt to permanently cure the chills
with quinine or chinchonidia, when they
do not remove the cause from the svstem,
that produces them 1 For until the canse
is removed, the chills will return. Trie
FERRIIVE
Is warranted to remove every canse from
the system that produces the chills, and if
it fails to do this you will sustain no loss,
for every druggist is authorized to guaran
tee a permanent cure in ( very case, no
matter of how long standing, and will re
fund the money it the chills return after
yon are done taking. Positively, no cure,
no pay. Try it and be conviucod. It con
tains no poison, and is perfectly tasteless.
Sold by all druggists, and a permanent
euro guaranteed in all cases.
