we were being robbed, our republican

When in the course of time, in God's
own providence, that nightmare was
shaken off by the gigantic efforts of
the Anglo-Saxon race and it became
democratic, then the hue and cry is
raised from one end of the country to
the other, 'The s!id South menaces
the liberties of this country,' and is
the language of the Senator from
Maine is a wicked, criminal usurpa

How men's minds and souls and bodies

however, that so far as our democratic
solidity is concerned, she is solid for
good government ; she is solid for the
honest administration of affairs ; she
is solid for the education of her chil
dren ; she is solid for development of
her industries ; she is solid in en
cauraging the people of all sections of
this country to come and live under
her beautiful climate and partake of
the almost boundless possibilities of
her future ; she is solid for the peace
and order of society, and there is not
a sentiment in the heart of any man
in the South, who is .a man, that
feels a'scintilla of hostility for the col
ored race. Why should we ? As the
Senator from Maine said, pathetically,
they stayed at home while we were at
the front in the army of the confed
eracy and protected our wives and
children. So they did; and I hope
God may strike me down and para

a sentiment of hostility to those kind

I am not quite prepared to admit,
however, and the Senators, if they
give expression to their honest senti
timents, are not quite prepared to
admit that those people, recently re
leased from slavery, are fit to be
judges and governors and legislators
and magistrates ; and when the Sen
ator from Maine says, 'we educate our
voters in New England ;' and says,
'why do not you educate yours in the
South?' I throw back to him the
inquiry, that when you had absolute
-control of those people, when you were
reconstructing thc governments of the
South, when you controlled every
-office from governor to constable and
dictated every line of the reconstruc
tion measures, why did you not pro.
vide an educational qualification for
the suffrage in South Carolina ? The
white people of that State had no
voice in the form and character of the
charter which was to be the organic
law of their future government ; from
which they were to derive protection
fQr their lives, their liberties, their~
families, and their property. They
were as voiceless as the tomb and as
powerless as the shorn Sampson.
The Senator says that the civiliza
tion of the South is founded upon the
S barbarism of slavery. Well, Mr.
President, it is not a matter of much
practical consequence at this day and
generation who is responsible for sla

we are making history, as it is said,

with him, I will read a letter from
Hon. Jerenmiah S. Black to lion.
subject of slavery. HIe says :
SThe Plymouth colony and the pro
vince of Massachusetts Bay were pro
slavery to the backbone- If you doubt
this, I refer you to Moore's History
of Slavery in Massachusetts, where
the evidence (consisting chiefly of re
Scords and documents perfectly authen
ticated) is produced and collated with
a fullness and fairness which cannot
be questioned. The Plymouth imi
grants planted precisely the doctrine
which you ascribe to the Jamestown
Scolonists; that is to say, they held
that 'the negro had no rights of man
hood, that the white man might buy,
own, and sell him and his offspring
forever.' Practieally and theoretically
they nmaintaiaed that human slave.y
in its most malignant form was a per
- - fectly just, proper, and desirable in.
Then he goes on to say :
They executed this theory-(that is
the Mlassachusetts people-) to the
2 fullest extent in their owr' wars with
the Indians. Without cause or prov
oeation, and without notice or warn
ing, they fell upon the Pequods, mas
sacred many of them, and made slaves
of the survivors, without distinction
of age or sex. About seven hundred,
including many women and children,
were sent to the West Indies and
~--- there sold on public account, the pro
-- ceeds being put in the colonial treas
ury. Eight score of those unfortu
nate people escaped f~rom the butch
ery by flight, ,and afterward gave
themselves up, &c.
Then he goes on to say that the In
dians did not wake good slaves, that
they were insubordinate, that they
were restless; and the good, pious
people of Massachusetts sent them to
the West Indies to exc-hange themi
fo.r blackamoors or Afric-ans. Not
content with enslaving the Africans I

Mr. President, I remember when as

the Senate, and subsequently to have
heard something about the 'slave
oligarchy,' that it was arrogant, ag
tressive, strong. Perhaps it was; I
will not argue that ; but one thing I
can say for it and its illustrious asso
ciates of the North ; in the history of
this Government they never plundered
the public Treasury, they never or
g auized 'Credit Mobiliers,' they never
made possible 'Black Friday,' they
never had five circuit judges of the
United States court to resign their
seats under the threat of impeach
ment for corruption and fraud, they
never had their Representatives kicked
out of Congress for 'selling cadet
ships,' they never traced corrupt con
tracts to the very door of the White
House, they never had race conflicts,
they never had rotten borough gov
ernments to rob the people, sustain
ing them with bayonets, they did not
drive American commerce from the
high seas to put public plunder in
their pockets; their great statesmen
never had their debts paid by copora
tions and manufacturing companies

The Senator tells us about an 'ir
repressible conflict' Yes, sir, there
was an irrepressible conflict between
free and slave. labor. They were two
civilizations ' moving toward each
other on coverging lines. Tney wet
at Fort Suwter and there the cow
bustion took place, the issiue was
joined. Then for four years there was
a 'battle of the giants,' such a battle
as the world has never seen ; until at
Appomattox one giant fell covered
~with wounds and blood and fatigue
and want and exhaustion. He sur
rendered ; and with that was buried
that 'irrepressible conflict.' Down
with it, forever and for aye, went the
institution of slavery; and I am glad
of it. Down with it in a grave of
blood and ruin and confusion went
the institution, and there ended that
'irrepressible conflict.' It ended as 1
had supposed forever ; it has ended
forever; but let me warn that Senator
that another 'irrepressible conflict' has
arisen in this coantry, not between
African slavery and freedom, but it is
a conflict on the one hand between the
people for their liberties, and arro
gant, bloated corporate power and mo
nopoly on the other hand. That is
another 'irrepressible conflict, to which
I invite the attention of the Senator.
When he said, 'How easy it is to
shoot labor ground down with a hun
dred years of slavery,' he forgot how
labor was shot not more than four
years ago at Pittsburgh, at Chicago,
and at other places; labor that had
never been and never will be 'ground
down' with slavery. Oh, but the
Senator would have us understand
that they are only poor white me
chanics, a -la wless mob,' as another
republican Senator styles them, who
ought to be shot when they do not
obey the behests of corporate powers.
They asked you for justice and you
give them-shot and.shell. They asked
you for food and you give them a
stone. They asked you for labor and
you give them the highway and tell
them to support their wives and chil
dren upon tramping and fresh air.
Unfortunate allusion of the Senator!
In this very nmorning's paper I see
that 'irrepressible conflict' still going
on-strikes at Milwaukee, strikes at
Saint Louis. strikes in other large
cities, of the free- born, liberty loving
white men of the North agzainst the
agressive, bloated plutocracy which
is seeking to grind them to the dust.
That is an 'irrepressible confhect.'
No, sir, we -do not shoot labor at
the South, and if the honorable Sen
ator from Maine will go with me I
will show him men with the plow
handles in their hands. as good and
intelligent and as proud as he dare be.
The laboring man of the South does
not know what hunger, cold, and
The Senator says that we of the
South cannot longer 'blindfold' the
people of the North. We are not
seeking to do so. We have never
sought to do so. We wish the peo
pe of the North had seen and could
see the condition of things at the]
South, and we wish the people of the
South could see the real condition of
things at the Nortb. We want the
light of truth turned on all over this
and. And let me say to the Senator
in reply, he cannot throw dust in the]
eyes of the freemen of the North, and
keep them longer in the dark as to
the shortcomings of republican meth
ods and policies by abusing and mis
representing the South. They are
beginning to have eyes to see and

The New York Senators Re
Quite a sensation has been pro
duced in political circles by the re
signation of Roscoe Conkling and
Thomas C. Platt, U. S. Senators
from New York. There has been
war between Conkling and Presi
dent Garfield since the beginning
of the extra session. Indeed, there
was never much love between them.
Conkling led the Grant forces at
the Chicago Convention in 1880
and held the solid phalanx of 306
for the General until the Blaine and
Garfield combination broke the
deadlock, and ran up Garfield from
one vote to an overwhelwing nomi
nation. Conkling was not only de
feated, bat he was thoroughly dis
gusted, and for a long time refused
to take any part in the campaign.
A truce was patched up, however,
by which, (Conkling's friends say),
he was promised all sorts of execu
tive favors if he would help to carry
New York for Gal fictld. He then
went into the campaign and did
effective work. After the election
Garfield sent for Conkling and ask
ed his advice about New York ap
pointments. Garfield stated that
he would make no material changes;
but in a few days, without consult
ing with either of the New York
Senators, he ent in the nomination
of Robertson, a bitter foe of Conk
ling, for Collector at New York,
with several other New York
nominations pleasing to the lordly
Senator. Then the war began in
earnest ; Conkling appealed to "dhe
courtesy of the Senate" which al
lows a Senator of a State for which
a nomination is made to hold it
over till the next session ; he sought
the aid of the Democrats and of the
Republican caucus to d .feat the
nomination- Garfield then with
drew all the New York nominations
except that of Robertson, and thus
made a square issue with the Sena
tor. The Republican Senators,
fearing to offend the President and
thus lose the patronage of their
States, sided with Garfield. The
Republican caucus said, let every
Senator vote according to his judg
ment. The Democrats, glad of the
opportunity to "cut the comb" of
the strutting Senator, also sided
with the President. Conkling
found himself helpless, beaten. To
a man who had hitherto carried
things with a high hand it was a
severe blow, and a humiliating de
feat. Monday, the 16th, he sient his
resignation as Senator to the Gov
eror of New York, and notified
the Vice President of his action.
Platt did likew~ise. He expects to
be re elected immediately, and no
doubt will be. Had he not been
satisfied of it he would not have re
signed.- His re election, he thinks,
will vindicate his course and 'ebuke

the turn affairs have taken ; they

Platt will be re elected. The New
