ADDRESS OF THE STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. To le iKmorratic I'artti of Missouri : The uulcrsii;ned central committee were appointed at tho State Iemoeratic convention held in .May, IMn. An organization having been promptly ef fected, the committee, in conjunction with your candidates, worked harmoni ously throughout the arduous canvass of that year. Documents were dis tributed in every quarterpeakers were ngaged to address the people, and othing was left undone to disseminate the best, arguments in behalf of Dem ocratic principles. The worthiness and popularity of j our nominees were un iversally admitted. Tho party was nited, zealous anil hopetul. I he elec tion returns, however, show how 1 utile were our efforts, in the presence of the proscriptivo partisan spirit and tyran nous party machinery of our oppo- cnts. The average of tho Jiadical majorities lor state olhces, as ofhcially announced, was about twenty-live thou- and. This result was produced by whole sale disfranchisements, thousands of which, in addition to violating the principles ot republican liberty, viola ted the spirit of the Missouri constitu tion itself, illiberal as that instrument s in respect to sulirage. .Nevertheless, t was but little if any different from the result ol almost every so-called election held in this State for years. Many of the most thoughtful members of our party now felt that further effort in opposition to tho rulo of arbitrary power was useless. It was seen that the Iiadical party had obstructud the suffrage franchise expressly to repel citizens from the polls. It had, so far as it could, made the freeman a culprit, casting upon him the suspicion of beini; the worst of criminals, and forcing him to prove by others his innocence of crime, where his own conscience only could be his witness. Instead of viewing the people as honest and pa triotic, it had assumed them to be traitors and perjurers. It had placed n tho hands bf a few, and those the most unscruplous and irresponsible ot partisans, the solemn right of citizens, to equal freedom. It had refused to abide its own measures,made and man- pulated by its own instruments. It had in manyin9tances,ruthle3shand in sultingly thrown aside those whom the manacled voters had chosen lor their representatives in office, and had placed n power over them those whom they, n spite of the attempt to defeat their will by an atrocious registration, had 'noimniously spurned. Iheso cases are so nnmerous as to be lamiliar to every Democrat ; bat as striking in stances in point, we direct attention to the peculiar developments in the refusal of seats in Congress to Gen. Shields of tbehixth and Col. Switzler of the .Ninth districts. The people had reluctantly submitted for the second time to the humiliating ordeal of establishing their rights, in the hope that fairer officers would Dc called to the tuture admims tration of the laws, and that a return ing sense ol justice, if not of shame, would bring about reform. It is sur prising that those facts and circum stances should have produced discour agement? And following on tho heels of this farce of an election came the pendency and subsequent ostensible adoption of the fifteenth constitutional amendment, the object and purpose of wbich was to give additional strength to the Radical party throughout the Union. Yet the Democracy of Missouri, serious as was the situation, did not whclly despond. There were, it was supposed, good grounds to believe that tho L nited blates supreme court would, in the test oath case, sustain the posi tion of those who had held that enact ment invalid, lhis expectation was not realized. It is impossible to de scribe the disheartening effect of the disappointment, and we will not mul tiply words upon the subject. W hilc this caso was beoro the su preme court, and while tho general opinion, oven in the Kadical party, was that the oath would be nullihod.a move raont of considerable promiso was in augurated by sonic ot our opponents, of their own volition, to rcraove the restrictions as an act ot so-called "magnanimity." Peace had reignod throughout the State since tbe close ot the war. The disfranchised embraced some of tbe worthicst.most intelligent and most useful citizens. If dancr had ever existed trom the exercise of tbo elective franchise by tho proscribed classes, it had long sinco passed away. ihe ruling party, in their national platform, bad passod a resolution, in troduced by one of the leading Radi cals ot Missouri, afterwards elected to the United States Senate, pledging themselves to abolish all disfranchise ments as soon as that could safely be done. It was expected by some of onr friends that the dominant party in the legislature, who professed a willing ness to remove all constitutional re- stictions in 1871, would perhaps agree to such modifications ot the registra tion act as would make it conform to the spirit of tbe constitution as ex pounded bv one of the fathers of that instrument (Senator Drake) in his not ed Uillsboro speech, and thus afford some present roliel to the people Amendments to tbe act in question were introduced amendments in strict conformity to the constitution, but re moving a part of the arbitrary and irre sponsible power of the registrars. Tho consideration of these proposed amend ineuts was postponed from time to time, and finally tho relict sought for was rel used. Ihe supreme court, in stead of declaring the test oath void, as had been exnectod. had virtually sustaiued its validity, and so done away with tho necessity for Kadical action, whether based upon tho question of justice or that of party expediency. ihe retusal ol tho legislature to amend the registration act, even in the face of the declaration of a Itadical member that under the operations of the existing law disfranchisement had within his knowledge extended to scores of men who had fought in the Fedoral army, and who desired to vote for (irant, destroyed tho last hope for any fair election. It showed the de termination of the ruling party to per petuate their absolute power by a con tin lance of the means so effectively eniiiloyed in past contosls as its action in refusing to consider an tnnondment, p-o, i ling for the punishment of a reg i.iir ", who should willfully refuse to register a qualified voter, was a virtual instruction to those officers to even exceed their former acts of injustice. Quotations might bo made from the leading organs of that party, even those uttering the loudest boasts of "magnanimity," to show that it never was the intention to make such a change i the registry law as, in the words of one of tbctn, "might enable Democrats to give to the result tho ap pearance of a Radical defeat," in any popular strugge. Indeed, theacriniony of partisan beling continued so ap parent that n the appointment of supervisors of registration, the gover nor of the State (conceding his dis position to select a higher class of men than the previous incumbents) was force J, in a majority of cases, to re appoint thos3 whose former services had been so taluable and conspicuous. The legislature even declined to amend tbe law so at to enable the executive to remove tie appointees selected by himself and confirmed by the Senate. It being apparent that no relief could be optained .n the direction indicated above, on Ihe lsth of March last a caucus of tie Democratic members of th legislative was hold at the State capital, whereat tho following resolu tion was untriimously adopted : Resolved, Thit in our opinion it is inexpedient to trail a lie mocrak: state Convention or to noiuinatv eondidaies for ttutc oilicers for tbe enduing Novem ber election . It is not tssumcd that a resolution passed by tie Democratic members of the general assembly is in any manner binding upjn the party, but as the foregoing expression seems to meet tho indorscmcit of a largo majority of Democrats throughout tho State, as expressed ia Democratic meetings and in varioui jther ways, and as tbe policy indicated tddresses itselt to tbe reason and judgment of your committee, we aro led to adopt the resolution mst quoted as, in the present situation of affairsjonvejing the sense of tho party at largo. Nor is it supposed that any contingency can arise which will render it proper for tho Democratic party to put a general ticket in tho field at the ensuing election, or to make any alli ance, combination or fusion whatever with my branch or faction of the Rad ical rarty with reference to such gen eral ticket. Should fair registering oflicirs be appointed in any locality the comnittee, however, recommend tho actfro exertions of tho Democracy to wards the election of candidates up holding the principles of that party. And, they would further suggest that n no caso should a Democratic voteoe cast for members of the legisla ture without the previous public pledge of tlD candidate to vote lor tho inime diateabolition of the test oath and the thorough reconstruction of the regis tratim act. However individual opin ions nay differ with regard to the pro pose! suffrage amendments or to the prosiects of their adoption or rejec tion the eyes of the people in tho com ing jlection will be turned most hope ful!; to the next general assembly for theremoval of the present suffrage re strntions. iV'here, owing to the causes we have recounted, the Democracy sha.l not have distinctive party candi dates of their own, the few who may be permitted to vote will be wise and prident if they watch the opportunity togive the weight of their influence, htwever slight, in behalf of a liberal piiicy. Enfranchisement will come at least as soon by this means as any o.her, and when this shall bo accom- p.ished, the Democratic party will be in a position, standing erect, untram meled, and conscious of the purity and soundness ol tbeir principles, to dis ute with any other party the claim of truly representing the wants and de mands ot tbe body ot tho people. We are free to confess that tbe re tirement ot the 1'emocracy irom a po litical campaign so important and critical as that of the present year, is not without its sad and even tiamiha ting aspects. Great exertions arc do manded to reseuo tho country from the hands of a faction whose rulo is mark ed by incapacity, profligacy, corruption ana a brood ot kindred evils. . In Mis souri wo see tbo dominant party strug gang in factions, coteries and cliques in competition for tho spoils of ofhee, ana with no better motive than the re tcntion of power and place. Confront ing them is tbe Democracy, strong in honest purnose and Derfcct in discipline v hatever befalls, its organization will remain intact and unbroken. Jout while we do not underrate tho importance of action, and know how supineness may oo misconstrued, thoroyet,on the other nana, remains tho paralyzing tact that any contest under tbe present circum stances can be no other than a mock- cry. The result would be wholly in the hands of our opponents, and we know how this advantage would be used. We cannot advise the Democra cy to go into a single-sided trial of this character. ParticiDatiou in a mere form like this can only mean acqui escence in fraud and wrong, giving to a snara election the moral character and external annearance of a real one. At the most it would be a useless pro test Dy means of ballots against a ty ranny which will not allow itself to be put down bv such means until there shall be a revolution in tho party that now maintains it.

Santito, June 21. I don't know whether you allow col ored folks to write for your paper, but I think you will not refuse any one the right to defend his character, and hav ing heard that it is reported that I have joined the League and now belong to the Republican party, 1 think it my uty to defend myself from such a toui slander. I am a colored man who has to work regularly and hard to obtain an honest living. I am not an office seeker, and have something else to do than spending my time attending League meetings. These meetings give many colored men bread, but tney help to give lazy white men olhcc. 1 am a tree man, as tree as you or any other man in the State, and I in tend to act as a free man should, earn an honest living, have my own politi cal opinions, and vote tost aa l please. This no man who joins the League can do, for every member of the League i bound by solemn oath to vote tor any candidate the head men (and they are white) may select. How 1 don t tic live in being bound to anv party. My best friends are the good people of South Carolina. If 1 want a friend I go to tbcm, and I don't intend to join any party that forces me not to vote for my friends. As tothe Northern men who came here to bold office and blind the colored pcoplo to support tbem don t know anything about them, and I don't want to know them. I look around at the native South Carolinians in the leagues, and don t ace a res poo tful man among them. They are mostly tboae that wocoiorea ioiks ntea to call "poor bnckra," and most of tbem we used to watch when they came on old master's premises, to keep them from stoaline. I used to think they were not as good as myself, and I don't think they are any better now than they were thon, and 1 My it is a dis grace to my character to report that belong to their party. iNow, Mr. Editor, 1 wish to tell every-body that I never did and never in tend, to belong to the League party, and any one that aays 1 do tells a lie.

We copy the following beautiful tri bute to V lrginia and the South from the Baltimore Episcopal Methodist : And yet.amidst ail this desolation and ruin, did th.e world ever see anything hko tho uncomplaining dignity with which tbe South has borne a vivisec tion that iett it at the time a ghastly semblance of life ? We confess' that won her thousand victories, not the fiery onset of Jackson's Scotch-Irish nor superb composure with which Lee directed tho advancing tide of battle, or covered the slow or sullen retreat, has ever so electrified or melted our whole souls as the sublime fortitude with which the South has borne the most unspeakable woes. "The Niobe of nation, there she stands, 4 till. lie- ami crow nless in voiceless woe, An empty uni within her withered hand, W hose holy dust was scattered long ago. ' ' Nor is this all. Virginia thus treat ed, the Lone of Dead Empires," is also the mother of that Union from which sho has been kept out like a leper, and only admitted now under tho most tyrannical and exasperating condi tions. The corner-stono of this grand costitutional fabric was laid by the hand of the giant who now stands at the threshhold of the temple, his hair shorn, his eyes put out, and for the present making eport for the Philis tines. It is Virginia, that proud old colony, which, having no quarrel ol her own with the King of England, yet took up, from generous sympathy, tho cause of Massachusetts ; Virginia, but for whose Washington the Revo lutionary War would have been a dis astrous failuro; whose Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence,whose Patrick Henry roused the nation to arms with his fiery eloquence ; whose Marshall was the glory of American jurisprudence ; whose Madison, Monroe, Harrison, laylor, adorned the Execu tive chair j whose Wiufield Scott and Rough and Ready, were tho leading military figures of the Mexican war; with troops of her valorous sons in the war of of 1812; whoso statcmen have Uustrated tho councils of tho Republic this is the good old commonwealth hich, lor fave long years, has been ground to the earth under the heel ot negro and military vassalage, and is now only permitted to enter the edifice winch ebo made by her own bands, and mmortalized by her genius and virtue, from its foundation to pinnacle, as a aptive and a slave.

THE DEMOCRATIC PYRAMID. The State elections of 1870 have al ready formed a fine pyramid of Dem ocratic states. Look at it : Democratic Majorities Orcgen Connecticut.

While nt.hara urn fitrewini? nOWeiB UDOn their graves, this obligation, with like purnose and kindred emotions, is mat contributed by the author to the same hallowed shrine. Grant has appointed a fellow at Washington as associate judge of the supreme court who never was admitted to tbe bar, except tbe whisky bar, There is a row among the lawvers about it. But Grant naturally thinks that if he can be president, any other loafer may De junge. This what the Day Book says, and it is to the point. A St. Joseph City Councilman is re ported to have delivered the following sneech at n. la.t tnentino- of the coun cil: "Mr. Mayor, and gentlemen of t.h rnnnitii int. na nut onr heads to gether and make a wooden pavement." THE OLDEST PAPER OUT. Mr. Woodbury, the gentlemanly salesman at Wisdom's Drug store, ia this place, has in his possession what is perhaps tho oldest copy of a news paper iu America. It is what the modern printer would style "a half sheet," about 8x12 with the following head and motto : "The New Knuland Weekev Joi rnae, Containing the most remarkable oc currences Foreign Si Domestick." It is, dated Boston, Massachusetts, April 8th, 1728, nearly half century before the first gun of the Revolution was firoJ, and indeed, we may fairly presume that its publishers grew old and died before the tocsin of war wat sounded'. The paper is of a good quality, the print clear and clean, showing that they used no inferior ink iu those primitive days, and the whole is in a remarkable state of preserva tion. We copy from this old memento of a buried generation the following advertisements which will read rather strange now to a denizen of the "Hub, and we commend the little bit of his tory which they contain to the prayer ful consideration of the Plymouth Rock howlers. Here arc the ads : ay-A very likely Negro Woman, who can do household work, and is fit wither for town or country service, about 22 years oK1,to be sold. Inquire of the Printer hereof. 3? A very likely Negro Girl abeut PI or 14 years of age, speaks good English, has been in the country 60me years, to be soul, inquire oi tne Printer hereof. How is that for Boston ! 'A likely negro girl' "Has been in the country' leng enough to "speak English." Think of that, ye long-nosed, bandy-shanked, carroty-headed, whining, canting, snivelling, hypocritical negro thieves of New England, and 6eo how your piratical forefathers kidnapped ne- rocs, tore trom their hemes and sola them to the people of the South, from whom you, their worthy descendants have, in turn, stolen them. How long, pray, before you will bo engaged in this ecu-same business oi again kidnapping negroes ? Just as soon as they cease to vote your ticket, and you can Cud a market for the barter. SQUARE UP. B. Gratz Brown comes square up to the issue like a man. He wants no equivocal platform, on the suffrage mendments. In his St. Joseph speech delivered on tho 5th inst., he says : There are many who whilst they pro fess a willingness to give these amend ments all their support, yet profess ery great unwillingness to see thera ncorporaied into any platform. Now, o far as this relates to the Republican part-, in whose behalf I have been in- ited to address you, permit me to say that I think it indicates a sensitivenes that can only proceed from latent an tagonism. 1 he party, as I have already hown, is so tar committed to such an advocacy, by all the authorized organs of expression, tlyit it cannot withdraw from it without dishonor. Those, there fore, who would wish to preclude it rom an endorsement ot the amend ments, as Radical measures either in local or State COUlcutiuuD, js lj- desirous of practicing a ruse upon the people,nnd of sacrificing the support of a vital principle in order to the advan tage a pre-arranged programme. .Now let us tie Iranu ana open aooub this matter, hither the Republican party is in favor of the removal of re strictions on suffrage or it is not. In either case let it declare itself. We are curious to know what the Missouri Democrat will say to this, af ter advocating the doctrine that the party should uot make the support of the amendments a test question, aud Radical party being the author ot dis franchisement it should be compelled to remove the odious proscription. Havinir perpetrated a great wrong, they should be held responsible for it, and by their own hands should this great wrong be undone. In Mississippi there is a social un pleasantness growing out of political equality.
