ble necessity, and then to ftiak It a point to
all only to persona not unfriendly to tbe
Soath, have attracted mnch attention In
Radical qnartort. They bsTtbeea made the
subject of voluminous comment ud pnngent
eriticism. Bo nnmerosa are tha newspaper
In which tboee articles hart been commented
upon and critiWted that it would, perhaps, be
deemed Invldtout to discriminate betwen
them, and reply only to tha trictprt of A
few, leaving the remainder unnoticed. Wt
therefor find It more convenient to reply
to them generally than specifically and la de
Tha affect of our discharge I evidenced
bv tha eeneral flntterlnff. and. to chadsfj tb
figure somswnat, It is not without a feeling
of pleasure that wa receive tha tvidencd that
th galled Jade wiaoaa. Th subject Is a vital
one w me ouutu, anu uie kihvi.uuv umuyev-
ted la fiadloal quartan srlMU that wt have
tenoned tbem to a tender pan.
Not content with tba military sucragsuon
of tha South, which w all accept without
demurrer; not content with a complete and
unconKitottonti political tuuugauon, wnien
wt oaa only gently protest s gainst, ths Rad
ical tntutiaa of tha South are astutely devis
ing a schema of religious, oclal, educational
and financial ubjugatioa of th eleven douth
thern States. They not only want to crush
as beneath tbe pitiless tread of armlet, and
to govern and tax us against our consented a
itbout our representation, but tbey want to
thhik for ua anything but feet for o.
They want to maka n worship as they wor
ship, mad what they print, and purchase
only what they manufacture. They want to
dissolve and reconstruct our whole social
system so as to eonform it to the Puritanical
Pltarisaioal ytom of Pratte-Ood Bare bones
New England. They would christen onr
children, Ifwt would let there, bestow log such
saintly names at Charity, Faith, Hope, Re
II tf, ice. Tney arretted tbe names ot ail tbe
Christian virtues bo t practic none. Tbey have
found a short and nre way of owning us,
onl and body, and either crushing us out
fashioning ns to suit their notion and
their interest. That way I to buy op our
land and colonise tbem withtha pealm-
siging money-loving, negro-worshipping
saints from New England. If tbey were al
lowed to bare their own way they would
get thee land and accomplish their objects
by a cheaper process by adopting Ibaddeus
Stevens, summary plan, enunciated In three
bort, strong word "oonfixatt, execute,
Wt have lands, they have money. Our
land product cotton, tugar, rice, tobacco,
corn, wheat everything indeed that clothes,
feed and refreshes man land than which
art nont better upon tbt broad face of
mother earth, and whose value will bt en
hanced every year. . Tbey bavt money
greenback, that fluctuate in value, and are
destined, in tbe opinion of many, to become a
valueless as Continental or Confederal ianies.
The are distrustful of them, and would be
lad to get tbem off their hands by .in
vesting them in our lands. By the way we
are not so certain that if tbev could
exchange these notes for onr lands, thus rid-
din a tba Morth of tbem and nalmina Uiem
off upon the South, tbe whole Radical influ
ence would not be immediately employed to
effect tbeir repudiation by the Government.
They did oraetbing Irk tbl once before.
They told ut their slaves, and after pocketing
the moner, turned around and questioned
our title and ended with universal emanci
pation. ' '
Tuat mere art organised aaoei.inona oi
Radical Influence and capital to effec
tuate thi scheme of financial eanaueet,
by purchasing all tba beet Southern land
and colonising them with Ritdical Battlers,
we have no doubt. We furtnermor believe
that these associations are operated by enlist
ing all tht Government agencies and officials
in tbe Southern State (especially tbe freed
men' Bureau) tout can be won over either
by sympathy or filth v lucre." Tbey no
doubt bave mapped off tht whole country,
classified tbe lauds in tbe d liferent states,
agreed among themselves how mnch I to be
paid per acre, and In many instance come
to an understanding as to wbo I to purchase
this plantation, and who that, ko. Tbey
have formed associations, doubtless, after the
fashion of th memorable Kansas emigrant
aid societies. Tbey art to some, each with
hi line, and all sworn by solemn oaths to
defend on another, until uch timt as there
snail be no danger, tr tbi scheme succeed,
it will not take many yean to Radicalise tbe
South, to enfranchise the negroes, and to lay
ail tb State of thi ectioa at tba feet of
the molocb of Radicalism. Thane immigrant
ill bring with them iwarmj of Yankee
school inarms and New England preachers.
Tba federal omcea, such as Judgeship,
Attorneyships. Clerkships, Colleclorships,
Assesorships, Fotmatershipa, ecu will be
filled with these new settlers. Before a de
cade puses by they will be numerous enough,
by tbe aid or tbe enfranchised negroes, to
carry our State, county, and municipal elec
tions, and in Presidential elections to east th
teetotal vote of Southern State ia tha Inter
est of tbe New England school of politician.
Dispossessed of their lands, and, In nine
out of ten, cheated cut of tbt purchase
money without homes, without money,
without occupation and without political
power what would become of tbe Southern
people? As wa taid ia a former article, a
whole nation cannot emigrate; much lest can
It Jo o whan It I without monev. We
fancy w hear som one suggest Why can
not tha two people become Incorporated by
Intermarriage? We leave tha ladiee of the
South to answer that question. The resultof
the suocessUl accomplishment of this lustful
Radical scheme for tha possession of tb
land of tba South would be the ultimate
extiuotion of tbt present Southern nam and
race, every succeeding geaeratlon would
become feebler, and not many generations
would elanee before too mould would be
broken in which uih heroes and tatamea
war east aa Washington, Jefferson, aladisoa,
Monroe, Henry, Harsh all, Wytbt, among
thoat of tb past, and Davis, Lee, Jackson,
Johnston, Beauregard, of tbe present era.
This Is tbe meaning of sailing our land to
Radical capitalist. Art we not, therefore,
right to tbe effort we are making to frustrate
the mitcaieroa scheme T w t do not expect
that who have devised or those who art in
terested In H to approve our effort. We ex
pert tbem to denounce it as aa eraeaot aotn
of Southern disloyalty and folly, when,
indeed, so far from being either, U w tb only
adequate elf-proiectiv measure that wt eaa
avail ourselves tf it Is to ns JuouM sjavrav-
