vith confidence in and devotion to a

.'ad interest of our common country.
The fruits of the great legal mneas
res that were intended to estalblish our
,ghts afid interests on a common foot
ig with all other citizens of the I
ration, have, to some extent, and in
particular locations, been withhehl I
fromn us by the prejudices and pas
sions of the hearts of a portion of our
fellow-citizens as a remnant of former
dens and associations. We need
our aid and sympathy to complete
-he.great work begun and carried on
in our behalf. We desire to lay
before you tile facts of our case in a
nrief, but truthful statement. We

dew exceptions, being in the hands of

steem. We have deemed a veonven
iron of our representatives as theI
most efficient means of laying before
you the true state ef our condition
and feeling.
Since the close of the war, a settled aL
oulicy has controlled the public and
p,'i.' te action of the great body of r(
tle w 'te people of the South towards. f'
Ins. They have sought to hold us in a
ondition of moditied servitude, so
hat we shou!l not be able to conl

practice of civilized nations.
The first great effort to carr; Wk~n o
T ffet thi line of policy, was, perhaps,
,,)ost conspicuously displayedt i? he
adoption of the code of laws, comrn
monly known, as the " Black Code. u
passed by the provisional government d
of South Carohna, in the year of 1865, e
and followed by other States. It is
unnecessary to give in detail the
feat.ies of this system. It establishnd t
caste of the Oriental type. It furn- t
ished courts for the trial of questions t
of ,'aste.. It provided for legal com
pulsion, as a means of procuring oun
labor, and fixing the rates of compen- I
nation and rules of performance.
t provided separate laws -,iv il and
rilnunal-and secured separat courts

allowed us no voice in the passiilg of'
the laws that were to govern us.

The action of the military anthori-i
ties, followed by that of Congress,
and, finally, the amendments to the
Constitution of the United States,
took fromn the hands of those seeking

The next resort w is to sublsidize and
control, through the motives of favor
and fear, the political and ivil pow
ers conferred by the liberality of the
,oveernmueht. On the one hand, the
fiiendship and patronage of the white
citizens were oflfred as the condition
of complete poitical subserviency,
while on the other hand, threats of
being deprived of homes and employ -
ment as a.means of subsistence, were
mnade liy the landholders and employ
,erg of our respective States. These
threats were in many instances carried
into effect. It was found, however,

'We do not ask the government or

While we have. as a body co.ltrib- i

the wealth and promote the welfare of
the community, we hav, a,- - ,lassi

such aid in extending education to the
uneducated clasaes in the States ,,-e

the na. icial interests of tle nation.
Althoun' we urge our unrequited la
hbors .n the past as tl,e ground of this
t appeal, yet we do not sa ek these ben
e ltts for ourselves alone, but for the
'white portion t, the iabe:ing class in

:n order to secure the promotion of
our 1 dnstrial interest, you cm:n render Y
us assti icnee. It is true we have no
de;numds ' make of the National Gov
erunment in ýhis respect; but it- is in i1
the power of te people of the United
Statcs to aid us r:aterially. In order i h
to advance our knowledge and skill t
in the industrial arts, it is necessary
that we should have the advantages
of thw means employed in the country r
at large for these purposes. That in
preparing for industrial pursuits and
in putting our skill in operation, we C
should come in contact with educated
and experienced workmen and be put i
in possession of the results of their
skill and knowledge. If the trades
and workishops are shut against us,we I
cannot reach that point of excellence
to which we desire to attain. We ask
your aid and sympathy in placing us
on the same footing in reference to
the pursuit of industry as that enjoyed
by other citizens. If after having a-
Sess +e the means of becoming skillful
workmen, we fail to attain that stand
ing we are cntent to take rank among
the industrial classes of the country 1
according to the degree of our profi
clency. Should we he excluded from
tlhese beneaits, a state of things will
arise, most piejudicial to the interests
of the skilled laborer, namely : the ex
istence of a great body of workmen
ready to Pupply the market with poor
work it cheap rates. While slavery
existed, th. Northern States were not
afifected by the low state of the indus
trial arts in the Southern State" : but
labor being now free to find the best
market, it is- oeyond questeon, the in-.
terest of the artificers of the North to
raise the standard of proficiency at the
South It is clearly the interest of the
great industries of the North to
strengthen themselves by alliance with
thos, at the South. This result would
be practicable to the fullest extent, if
those of our colo, throughout the
North could be placed in a position to
bring among us the best knowledge
and skill in the departments of trade
to which they belong.

indurse these measures, and all laws of Con

fairly executed, these statutes will conduce
to the Irosperitv o1 the South and to the t
strengthening oi Republican institutions.

mend the .flicial career of our lov.lrnor, H.
C. Warnioth. W 1o this because, in our
et opinion, his adnministration of the government

t so successful as to bring about the condition
of peace :mnc orde' which characterizes our

d Resolved, That we pledge our party to the
of reduction of taxation, and we insist upon an
econc'uica1 administration of the govern

we urge upon the Legisla+tnr the curtail

State. We denou 'co them for having called re
the convention to meet in a United Stats

Sdenounce their for h -vin closed the door of
Ithe courtroom, and having barred the en- p;

them for attempting to exclude from this
convention ninety-five delegtes of the peo
ple, wh. were met at the thrshold by two lii
companie ý of the United States army, called t
out by these men to assist in carrying this ti
convention against the people. We denounce
their whole conduct in connection with the
calling out and assembling of this body. 1
They were guilty of , very unfairnes% in the
progress of the election for delegAtes. Thby
were guilty of himulation and fraud in con
I eetion with the determination of the time ,
and place of meeting. They finally estab- h
lished. without authorit., certain pret nded
riles relativ. to the admission of delegates,
calculated to further their scheme. They a
nads itted ao the conve ition hall, ,r to an
i adjoining room, with an open door, their v
fraudulent .elegagtes while the doors were
oLpt closed against the bonea ide members A
of tht convention uncil the hour of meeting, t
in order that they might sl,ainj and force an
organization under the protection of the
revolvers of their marshals and dhe bayo

that these outrages were not perpetrated

earnest hope that our President will repudiate
