To such base uses are your soldiers put. That our people are disposed to vio lence, And that the rights of the black man would not be safe if the Oohsejrva Mye majority in Louisiana was per mitted to rule, as stated by onr eUe mies, and by the President in his mes sage, we know to be untrue and dis proved by the foot that daring the 'onr days the elected government was in undispnted power with a large forcé oand. not a negro was hurt, of violence committed, ami at its comman not an act of violence committed, and notwithstanding the great previous provocation, not a right of any citizen, was violated. , Having failed in all our appeals to the justice and the patriotism of the 'President and the Congress, we now, as a last resort, appeal to the source of all power—the people of the whole country, whose moral influence we in voke, in the hope of awakening that sympathy with our wrongs and suffer accorded a brave and free ggling for liberty. In the that a virtuous public sen timent may compel the unprincipled men who are preying upon the vitals of the State to let go their hold, ye hope it may react upon*the Executive and Congress, and compel them to grant ns that relief which neither their sense of justice nor a regard for thé fundamental institutions of the coun try has betel able to effect. We make this appeal in advance of the final consummation of the great wrong about being perpetrated upon the people, as wé are as positively .as sured of the intentidh of tUb returning officers to defraud the people of the fruits of their political victory as if the t had been already consummated, e are not Clamoring for party pur poses that one sot of men should be substituted for another as publio offi Our repugnance to Republican rule in Louisiana is not based altogeth er upon the fact that its being a usur pation.

The people demand that those elected by them shall govern, so that they shall be reîiev»ïd from oppres ri that taxation, which lias become ' confiscation, may be lightened; that hideous and wide ipread poverty and distrust may be removed, and that they may be per mitted to lisp by honest industry; that honest government for prnfeeffijg may be -on ■ 4n peof now oaH upon States of Ante) ■elves remain of self govornmc that can not lie atized rob we, thedown Ouee free Louisiana, people 'of the free u would yorlr •etain the right to demand in tones „ .„ . erstood or dis regarded that the shackles be stricken from Louisiana, and the power of the Unitetl States army bo no longer used to keep a horde of adventurers in power.
