The Mischief of the Uion" Aepudiation
:A clearly ddbfned and thorough
realization of the nature of tho State

ready to make the trial of forcible
rettiltation, it is our duty, as good citi

prove it, if we' can,-would convince
any candid man, thtt the repudiation
mnovement started in Union, is only
inisehievous, and must result hi fail
ure.Ours is a government of the
majority. We do earnestly wish that
all sober mon would rofeet upon this
indisputable fact., for it involves tre
mundouscousequences, and none more
cleirly, than) that it is by convincing
and persuading the majority actually
in power, or by supplanting them, and
by those moans aloiie, that any indi
vidual or any party can effect any.
thing. We admit that a threatening
attitude has influence ; but only when
it is plain that there is real danger of
the party waking the threat, being
able to make it good. The policy we
recommend is a throat--a threat that,
by conuiliating the blacks, we tax.
piayers will got the majority, and
thore is real dangor to the Radicals
in it : they know it, and will be re
strained, or at least guided by it.
But there is no sense in this threat of
repudiation, because it will antago
niso the races and sot every
black voter in the State square and
solid against us, and keep the conser
vatives for years to come In a most im;
potent and ridiculous minority. And
yet it will depreciate the credit of the
State, increase its debt, and augment
our taxation and the inequalities of
which we have this year complained.
What ? ask the black man to vote the
di.siionor of the government that has
given hm. political power and posh
tions of honor and trust I We know
his want of education, and believe
Iti nm watch for the white man in
intelligence, but is lie such a fool as
to do this ? If lie cannot himself see
the case clearly, are there not white
brains enough in tho Radical party to
make such a humiliation plain ? No I

as this lolonged very properly to that

which we fought on last year, and

po'l. Our goeration at least cannot
mako that issue again. Let it drop.
It is very hard to convince obsti
inate meni, who, in this free country, are
allowed to live and die, not knowing
when they are whipped. Advocating
anm impossible policy, they thrust
more modest mon aside, or pour inan
ill-~judg6'd fire of all shot in their
roar, whenm such men advance to do
vote their hearts and their brains to
the sorvico of the State they cherish
and the afflicted people they love.

to ignore the fact. Wo ouraelvq be- '
