THE CARPET BAGGER. And to-day, after three years of peace, we find the 8QUt(icrn states crushed under a rule of force—an alien rule—under con ditions and meu they detest. That rule is made with one purpose : it is to take away from the white citizens of the south all political power, and confer it upon the enfranchised slave—and upon that meaner thing, that thing the meanest that ever crawled upon the footstool of God, that thing which had no representative among the crawling reptiles of the ancient world which found a place in the Ark—that thing which it was left lor the subsiding slime of this war to produce—I mean the carpet-bagger of the south (The whole audience here burst into deafening cheers of approbation at this characterization.) rai: motive pow er or radicalism. Gentlemen, in that one word he describ ed the republican party. It is a revolu tionary parly. In the spirit of revolution it was born^in the spirit of revolution it has its daily life. And it follows the in exorable law of its being. Progress is the law of revolutionary organizations, as of everything else. The republican party must go on. It never wearies, it never stops Its leaders cannot stop it; if they try they are overthrown, and others put in their places. The spirit of revolution is insatiable; it forever ories, give, give. If to-day it accomplishes it objects, to-morrow it demands a newer and deeper plunge .So it has ever been, so it will ever bo. You eanuot turn the needle from its at traction from the north and have it point south; the sun cannot be made to rise in west and set in the cast; the stars, in their mazy courses making the fabled mu sic of the spheres, cannot come in colli sion ; and neither can a revolutionary par ty change the laws of its existence and stop in its mad-enreer. It must go on and on—till the flames it has lighted aro by themselves extinguished. (Great ap plause.) The Republican party must go on and on If it attains its end to day by means—it niU3t to morrow demand more extravagant ends, to be attained by more extravagant means And the feeling which lies at the bottom of this constant action is -FEAR. They cannot afford to give up power 1 It is fear of an out raged pgnrfle it is fear of the penalty of a broken Constitution! It is the lear of those who have destroyed liberty. It is the fear which cannot rest. It is the fear that compels thiit “murder will out.” It is the blood spot upon the hand. It is the fear that drove Macbeth to visit the weird sisters to the heath, and made him exclaim— «‘I!y the worst means, the worst; for mine own good.

A petition lias been sent here from prominent and respectable citizens of Florida, in which it is stated that “We are in a terrible condition bore, and God knows what may not happen at any mo ment.

It having been reported that a certain geutlemiri had died, who was to have been buried on Saturday evening, quite a number of his old friends and acquaintances repaired to his house, to pay the last sad tribute of respect by following his remains to the grave. As the death had been sudden, the Coroner had been summoned, and when his dutieshad been performed the remains were placed in an extemporized hearse, and the procession formed. Before moving, the hospitalities of the deceased’s house wero extended to those present, in the shape of a good, stiff bran dy julep to each, so as the better to enable them to undergo tbo fatigue of the long march to the new burying ground. While tlio pall bearers, who wore stand ing by the hearse, wero slowly sipping their juleps, and now and again giving their goblets a slight shake to srttie the ice in them, a noise was heard in the i coffin, which turned some faces whiter than they had been for years before. FiuuHy. the undertaker for the occasion mustered up courage to unscrew the oof tin-lid, when, horrible to behold, up sat the supposed corpse, and coolly asked for his julep. Having quenohed bis thirst, he got down, and stated to the gaping crowd that he had been in a sort of a truneo, and knew all that was going on around him, but was unable to rouse him self until his ears wore greeted with the familiar jingle of the ice, and his nose with the delicious smell of the brandy and ; mint in the goblets round the hearse, the thoughts called forth by which infused new life into his system, and the desire to partake became so stroug that he was able to break the trance which had come near 1 consigning him to a premature crave. *—g? in. H> Hill’s Advice to tbe Se jrves. Hon. lianjarnlu H. Hill delivered a long speech al the City Hall in Augusta, Georgia, ou Friday evening, 21st ult. After discussing the reconstruction measures in the usuul line of argument, lie talked for a long time to the negroes, in the course of his remarks saying: ‘Tt is my duty to warn you to-night that if you turn a deaf ear to what I have spoken to you ; if you will be de ceived ; if you will hate tiie white peo ple : if you youi’selves will provoke a war of races—1 warn you that deslruc tion is in store for you. When such a war comes, if unhappily it should, the whites, North and South, will unite against you. I see letters from the North almost every day, saying let the Contest come; wo will light it out. Oil, my colored friends, that a voice from heaven could tell you that the best friends you have ou earth are these Southern people—these people who have been raised with you. It is strango to me that you can he made to believe anything else. The radicals have tried the white poople and failed with them ; and now they nrw failing with the colored people. 1 have studied the history of your race for four thousand years. During your slavery you enjoyed more advantages and happiness than any of your race elsewhere, If you want to preserve your advantages and happiness iu free dom, you must preserve your kindly and natural relations with the white peoplo. You are now as free us I am ; but do not let the future historian say that as soou as you got your freedom you began to deteriorate. Preserve your characters, improve your lace, be honest and just, and freedom will prove a blessing to you. If you turn your hack on your friends, ou men who made this country, what will be your fate? We want peace—wo intend to iiave peace—it is to our interest to liuVe peace; but if you will wugo war, if you will follow strangers, it you will hate our peoplo at the instigation of carpet baggers, wo lie unto you. These are words that should strike deep into your hearts, as I utter them—woo.! woe! unto you will he the words from all parts of the world. These are not threats, my colored friends: they are words of counsel, and warning, and wisdom to you. 1 do not know what is to become of the country. There never were so many whites and blacks assembled together in one government, ns freemen, before. Whether it will stand or fail I do not know. Philoso phers say that it cannot, stand.

The statesinent of Mr. Ould in re ference to Confederate prisoners de livered at the mouth of the Savannah I river (Section ill of letters,) recalls a narrative made to us several years ago. j upon the most unquestionable uuthori- : tv. It is to this effect, that the com- | tuander of one oftlie large transports j employed by the Coverinient of the United sitates proceeded, nuclei'instruc tion, Fort McAllister, to transfer some i nine hundred Confederate oUieets and soldiers to Hilton head ; that upon tak-; ing tliem on hoard there were not any two of the number whom lie could not have carried in his arms, iiko infants, j suclt was their wasted and miserable condition; that upon inquiry he was! informed that they had been fed on i nothing, for mouths, hut hall'a pint of raw corn and a small allowance of water; that the commandant at the! Fort said such wore his orders. The lirst Colonel in command, who received these orders, informed Stanton that he could not comply, and another was substituted for him. The humane oili- j cor at once provided them touts and necessary food, and did his best to , make them as comfortable ns possible, hut many died on the passage. Oh arriving at Hilton Head and delivering up his charge, he was told, to his amaze ment, that the commander at that fort had the same orders in regard to supplying the prisoners with food ; but stated that if either of them had the means of purchasing better fare it eight be done; and a Colonel act' the party drew for live thousand dollars on New York, and by this means their sufferings were alleviated. Tnis Colo nel told our informant afterwards that he had thus furnished$12,0:K), and every cent of it, he knew, would be repaid. This statement has never, to our knowledge, appeared in print before; but the present occasion is a suitable one to produce it. It can easily he verified, if disputed. We had leave to make it known; but wc thought it would be of no avail in the condition better opportunity is now ottered, and wo think the people ought to know by whoso orders it was that the Con federate prisoners were kept on half a pint of raw com and a pint of water a day. RadU-al Stupidity. The late Georgia ejection of negroes from tho roeonstreted Georgia Legislature has now its explanation. When the bogus constitution was under discussion, it was > proposed to insert therein the following as a part of the article on franchise^ '•Sec tion 10. All qualified electors, and none others, shall be eligible to any office in this State unless disqualified by (he con stitution of this State or by the Constitu tion of this United States”. This was not; agreed to—nays 126, yeas 12—overy ne gro in the bogus convention but two voting a^e. When the enlightened freed man had time voted away his eligibility . to office affirmatively, he proceeded to do the same in a negative manner, every single negro in the whole body voting for the X1 tli article of the Vogue constitution, which article declares ‘'the code or Geor gia” and ail laws passed '-since the 19th day of Juuurrr, 1861," of full force, save as to slaves. This code and these laws, of course, deny tho right to hold office to free persons of color. Singularly enough, wlien the poor, stupid negroes had thus vote I in favor of their intelligibility, Congress was stupid enough in turn to confirm the sur render. declaring the instrument contain ing it entirely republican in form aud alto gether so satisfactory that tha Statu was j immediately admitted to representation | thereunder.

He refers to the i entire Western and South-western country to bear him testimony to the truth of the as- \ senion, that in no cast* whatever will it fail ! to cure, if the directions are strictly followed ' and carried out. In a great many cases a ■ single dose has been sufficient for a cigp, and j whole families have been cured by a single j bottle. With a perfect restoration of the gen eral health. U is, however, prudent, and in every vase more certain to cure, if its use is j continued in smaller doses for a week or two after the disease has been checked, more es pecially in difficult and long-standing cases. I Usually, this medicine will not require an)’ aid to keep the bowels in good order; should the patient, however, require a cathartic medicine, after having taken three or four j doses of the Tonic, a single dost* of HULL S j VEGETAULC FAMILY PILLS will bo suffi- i cient.

' Having had indubitable dvidened of its prompt and certain effect* from the testiino-^ ny of a multitude of respectable citizens, among whom arc classed some of our best physicians, we do not hesitate to recommend cli is Preparation in all cases of Fever and Ague and Thills and Fever; indeed, from the facts in our possession of its intrinsic value, it would not be too much for us to state that when the directions are strictly complied with, we warrant a cure in every case where it is tried. It is pleasant to the taste, and the cheapest medicine in the w orld. There fore, in truth, it may be declared the day is not far distant when it must be appreciated and used in every household where Fever and Ague or Chills and Fever is found to exist. The wonderful operation of the Texas Ton ic Syrup in neutralizing the effects ot mala rious poison in the human system, euu only explain its extraordinary agency in the speedy, thorough and permanent cure of ('hills! and Fever or Fever and Ague, and all their kindred diseases, in whatever form of Bilious Complaints they may make their ap pearance. As its name imports, it is a Tonic of rare and medicinal virtues, composed of pure and harmless ingredients, and are so united as to form a compound alike skillful in art, beau tiful in appearance, and can be taken with safety to the most delicate constitutions. It i? the re nit of a lifetime of experience and practice in a Southern climate, and was nev er know n to fail, even w hero all othe reme dies had beep tried in vain. Those who are unacquainted with the ex traordinary properties of this home produc tion, manufactured from Boots and Plants indigenous to the soil of our “%unny South,” (and hence adapted to the cure of Southern climatic diseases) are respectfully referred to the certificates of respectable citizens whose names are embraced in a pamphlet which accompanies each bottle: also the en dorsement.s of the press in all the Southern States, indicating the many thousand cures already performed by our justly celebrated Texas Tonic Syrup. The reports from hundreds of Druggists, Merchants and Dealers, from all parts of the country, are uniform in stating the medicine is sale, certain and reliable, as a substitute for Quinine and the poisonous compounds heretofore generally sold, and is rapidly supplanting everything of this class. As a home enterprise it especially com mends itself to the people of this section of the country, who are now struggling in an effort to do away with old prejudices in favor of foreign produce, and may we not hope foreign “Quack Nostrums,” the proprietors of which, in most cases, arc governed by no- I thing but mercenary motives, know nothing of the properties of Medicinal Agents, and care nothing for our interests, except to en- < tice our people into the use of their vile mixtures. The Texas Tonic Syrup is packed in cases of t wo dozen. Dealers supplied upon better-terms than liny other remedy affords.
