The Enforcement ActThe
Supromo Court of ilio United
States, after a lapse of two or three
yearn, has rondei-cd iLh decision on the
Grant Parish (La.) caso. This d^iis*
ion is oxtromly important at this
juncture, as it rc-aflirms tho States
Rights doctrino. Tho case grow out
of a riot botwoon tho whites and nogroes,
and tho whites wore indictod
under tho provisions of Iho Enforcos
mont Act. Justico Bradley, of tho
Supremo Court in reviewing tho enso,
said that tho Fifteenth Amendment to
tho Constitution "docs not confor tho
right to vote; it only confers a right
not to bo cxoludcd from voting, b}'
reason of raco, color or provious eons
dition." 'This view is uphold by tho
Supremo Court. Under this decision
tho States still retain tho sovereign
powor in relation to suffrago, except
it can not exeludo any ono on account
of "racc, color or previcn* condition;"
but may establish an educational,
property, or any oilier qualification
t seen proper. Tho decision does not
declare the Act unconstitutional, but
restricts the jurisdiction of tho United
States to cases only whero tho (pies
tion of color is raised. -No eases of
assault and battery, riot or murdor
can be tried under I ho act unions it is
committed on account of '-race or
color."' The Act iindcr this decision
does not provont citizens from combining
and refusing to employ any
ono \vb? votes tlio Republican or Democratic
ticket as tho case might be.
Many gentlemen wlio have heretofore
been prominently connected with
the Republican party in this County,
liavo patriotically conio forward and
attached themselves to tho Democratic
clubs. There is room for all.
We have not seen tho result of
tho Connecticut election which came
off last Monday, and consequently can
not give it to our readers.

Mb. Editor: In tho last Skntinxl
I notinn nil iillnninn tn llin fnilnrn of
Townships to sond in reports of organizations
of Domooratio clubs, which
together with a convorsation I had
tho other day with a citizon of an
adjoining Township, indue cs tho
opinion, that perhaps thoso organizations
aro not as gonernl as tho exigency
of tho caso dornands. 1 am
persuaded, howovor, that tho tardiness
of soino of tho Townships to organize,
and tho inactivity of eomo of
our citizens in rogard to tho matter,
do not spring from any want of truo
Democratic principlo, but rathor from
a failure to seo tlio necessity for tlieso
organizations in our County, coupled
in tho minds of somo witli an antipathy
to anything liLeo an obligation or
committal, as to how they shall cast
their vote. In this, I venture tho
assertion, that thoro aro few among
us who do not sympathize to a greater
or loss oxtont. Wo doploro tho necessity
for organization. Wo know
that it is contrary to the genius of tho
government established by our forefathers;
anil it is not without a feeling
of humiliation that wo yield to
this nocossity forccd upon us by a
powerful and unscrupulous faction.?
Hut, however much wo ma)' deplore,
wo cannot?dare not ignoro it. A
rwnubjjoui 01 uiu iiiihgovcrnmoni anu
corruption that havo charactorizod
tho supremacy of .Radicalism in this
Slate will convince tho most incredulous
of tho fact tlmt wo are struggling
for our very existence as a pooplo.
Tho position wo occupy is truly
ono of tho gravost responsibility. Wo
arc contending with an cnomy base,
but powerful?thoroughly organized
and armod with every subtle machination
that satanic windom can suggest.
As a band of stragglers, howover
valorous, wc can not successfully
capo with this foo. Wo must meet
organization with organization. Nor
can this bo too thorough. Tho time
has came for indifforcnco to give place
to solicitude lor the common weal,
and for that lclliurgy that has so long
characterized too many of our citk
zens politically to givo way to a 1 iv^
ing activity in the cause of good governmsnt.
Every Democrat white or
black; every lovor of honesty or enemy
of corruption, should formally enlist
hy connecting himself with a Democratic
club. It is a humiliating
fact, that notwithstanding tho oppression
we have had to endure from Radical
misrule, the true strength of tho
Democracy has not boon polled since
the war. Lot us wipe out this disgrace
by answering to a man at tho
roll call next fall. The .Radical majorities
on the other hand, it is boiicvcd,
have beon really much less
than their nublished afntemmilft?
I ~ ? "" *""
Thcso facts among others, afford ?
