BLOOMSBUBQ, SEPT. 42,
The Pests of the Country.
Wo have, in the North, two classes of
pests, whoso joint labors bid fair to involve
tlio country in anarch and civil war. which
, ' ,
must result in the dissolution of tho Union,
or a consolidated dcspoiism These pests
aro tho fanatics and tho demaooqucs.
Tho first aro crazy upon tho subject of
negroes and shivery. They aro mere lu
natics, or rather monomaniacs, acting
without sense or reason. Thoy havo con
ceived au immense affection for tho dirty
and filthy negroes of tho South ; and havo
fallen into the hallucination that those
ncgrccs aro as capable of civilization, and
of cftablisliing and erjjoyingtlie institutions
of civilization, as white men. They shut
their eyes to all the facts of history con
cerning thnt abject and degraded race.
'I hoy forget that, (rem tho first dawn ol
historical light, the negro has been tho
same, physically, morally,and intellectually
that flOOfl years ago, ho had a woolly
head, n flat nose, a thick lip, a crooked
shin, and a loug heel; that during that
loug period he has been a s!ave, cither to
a race more civilized than he, or to his
own sable compatiiots, which was a great
deal worse ; ahd that, ho has never pro
gressed in civilization, or Christianity,
except when he has been in subjection to
a gupcrirr und civilized race.
And the to monomaniacs, too, forget the
facts jurrounding tho origin nd birth of
this Republic. They forget that, then,
at tho Declaration of IndepcndcLco and
tho formation of tho Constitutio every
Stale hold the negroes in bondago; that
vkev. our for.efa'Iicrs pioclaimcd to the
world, 1 ho abstract tru'h that "nil men
aro born free and equal," they did not set
the negroes frco; that they did not appoint
them to office did not make them generals
nor senators, nor recognize their right to
hold office of any kind ; that they did not
admit usgrocs, tier Indians, to citiziuship;
thus making color tho distinction of citi
zenship; adduction carried out in our
naturalization laws, which admit only white
men to citizenship ; and in our 1'ost Office
laws, which permit no negro, or colored
man, to carry (lie mail of the Ut itcd States.
Thcso mouomamdcs forget all theso facts,
so significant of tho true intention of our
patriotic forefathers in founding tho He

lessly and without reflection, arrayed against

tho South, ut the same Umc turning the

And they do thcso wio!cd things with the
full ccusciousncss, that they arc thus put
ting in peril the cxis once of the Union, the
independence of their country, and tho
Iibeitio of the people.
These aro the roally d.ingerom men, tho
true pests of the Republic. Tho fanai lea
aro of no account, except as instruments
in the hands of I lie DtMAOOdUEi, whs are
the really daogcrous men. And we hesitate
not to say, that, if the peoplo of tho North
do not soon awjken to a ronscinusncss of
the rcalUto of things to the actual nnd
truly formidable dangers which mouace
tbo peaco and integrity of their country,
from tho Intrigues and machinations of the
demaooouks, who are filling this section
of tho Union with prejudice and passion,
by their artful and inflammatory appeals,

danger, be startled from their dream of se
