Wo entreat the better and more
thoughtful class of men at the Korth to
note the working of this diabolical plot
against the peace of Southern society,
to put themselves in the place of the
Southern people, thus menaced and liv
ing over a daily volcano, and to ask
thciriselvcs what would be their feelings
and action under such fearful danger,
kept up from month to mouth for party
purposes, and not to cease, it seems,
while this bad part' remains in power.
We ask them, also, to note the fearful
increase of crime on the part of the ne
groes," and to see how manj' of them arc
bc'c6miiij demons under the teachinff of
the Radical emissaries. In all these
horrible deeds we read the work of the

From the PL Louis Times, 15th.
A most atrocious murder was commit
ted on Friday, at Pond's store, on the
Manchester road, about twenty-five miles
from the city. Mr. Hildcbrandt, who
keeps the Pond store, is a strong believ
er in the doctrines of negro suffrage and
negro equality, and in order to put these
themes into practical execution, employ
ed a negro named Jordan to do the work
around the farm. To obliterate all lines
of distinction, he permitted the negro to
eat at the same table and fraternize with
the family. Among the members of the
household was a maid, Amelia Drienho-
fer. Jordan, presuming upon the liberty
lermitted him, and believing that equal
ity meant a right to do every and any
thin? his more bestial nature might sug
gest, on Saturday morning followed the
young woman into the waslihouse and
made an ludecent proposal to her, wnicii
she indignantly refused, ordering' him
out of the building. . . Not content with
the rebuff, he attempted to carry out his
design byforcc. ; She resisted and drove
him out, locking the door upon mm. as
he left the room he declared lie would
kill her. Deeming this but an idle threat,
6he paid no further attention : to it ; but
in a few moments she was horrified by
seeinar him at the kitchen window with a
gun in his hand, which "he' immediately
discharged. The bullet entered her back
and passed through the bowels. He im
mediately dropped the gun and started
for the woods, lis was arrested, and on
preliminary examination was held to
answer, and 6ent to Glcncoe Station to
be conveyed to the jail in this county.
The excitement around the depot was in
tense, and fearing violence, the negro
was returned to Pond's store for safe
keeping. In the afternoon the crowd
broke in and seized Jordan, whom they
conveyed to a clump of trees, where
they hung him without further parley.
From the Louiaville Journal.
The Lexington Observer says that
within the last week three nesro races
upon while women have been attempted
near the city, lhis crime nas necome
horrible common among the negroes all
over the country. A perfect mama for
ravishing women and young girls, and
even female children, six, seven or eight
years of age, seems to have seized upon
the minds of tho negroes throughout
the entire kind. The catalogue of re
ported cases, many of them resulting in
the death of the victims, is lngiitiui,
and, every day adds to it. In many
portions of the South females do not
dare to leave . their homes, and, even
when they remain within them, the black
devils break in for the gratification of
their accursed instincts. -
It is probable that the negroes consider
rape as brie of their ' newly acquired
rights. We are aware that this is a re-.
voltinsr subiect to be mentioned m a
newspaper, but is too important to be
ignored. We would rather the last ne
gro should be driven from the. conti
nent than that the coming year should
witness a repetition of all the disgust
ing and horrid atrocities of the last
From the Schenectady Star, September 11
About 10 o'clock this morning a most
dastardly outrage was perpetrated upon
the person of an aged German woman,
named Louckes, in Van Zandt's woods
on the Albany turnpike, a short dis
tance from this citv, by a unite 01 a ne
gro, who overtook the woman in the
woods, knocked her down, ravishing
her person several times, and then fled,
leavinsr the woman in an insensible and
half dving condition where she was dis
covered by one of the neighbors, who
immediately nouned ner nusoana. Air.
Louckes immediately came to this city
to procure a warrant for the negroiX ar
rest, but failing to obtain one, ne retai n
ed home with the intention ol rousing
the neighborhood, and, if possible, cai
turing the villian. lie is a large sized
negro, and a stranger in the vicinity.
Mrs. Louckes is about seventy-six years
of age. She. resisted the negro as long
as she Was able, but was soon Overcome
She now lies in a precarious condition
at her home, and it is feared bcr injuries
will result fatally. The. black villain

A negro attempted to commit a rape
on a little girl " of only five years
old, near Brownsville,. on Friday. 'He
was caught a few hours afterwards and
shot by a party of citizens.
A 'gentleman from Daviess county
Missouri, reports that a most horrible
rape was perpetrated by a' negro, some
fifteen days ago, upon a little girl whose
parents reside about seven miles north
of Gallatin. The fiend sought the child
in tho woods, and by brute force satis
lied his hellish lusts, then bound her to
a tree and disappeared. After a search
of three days she was found as her de
stroyer left her, but in a dying condition
living barely, long enough "to tell the
name of the fiend who had so brulully
outraged and murdered her. The vill
ain has not been heard of since the oc
currence of the affair, although the au
thorities have been vigorously search
ing for him, and offered a thousand dol
lars reward for his apprehension.
From tie Chatt.inoogti (Tcnn.,);LTuipn, Sep. 12.
We learned ye sterdav the particulars
of a horrible outrage perpetrated near
Tyners Station, by live negroes. Our
informant, Mr. Stantiri'er, is a gentle
man well known to the citizens of Chat
tanooga, and his statements are true in
every particular. He is a farmer, resid
ing in the neighborhood of the scene
he relates. It appears that the vicinity
of House's Camp Ground, about one
and a-half miles from Tyner's Station,
in the eastern part of Hamilton county,
has for some weeks past been infested
by a number of negroes, who have been
a terror, to the citizens by their uumbcr
berless thefts, and their outrages upon
the women of the farmers' households.
On Saturday evening last, a family nam
ed Gardner, from j'orth Alabama, ar
rived at the Camp Ground, as the village
U known, intending to make a pcrma
nent settlement. . The family consisted
of Hiram Gardner, an old man of about
sixty years, and three daughters, all at
tained to womanhood. They had trav
elled from their own home in a wagon,
containing their few personal'aud house
hold effects. Arming in the outskirts
of the village, they determined to stay
there until the following morning. Afier
their frugal meal, they laid down in the
wagon and went to sleep. About mid
night they were awakened by loud "nois
es, and starting up in affright, found
that a number of negroes were in and
around the wagon. Mr. Gardner, a
feeble old man, spoke to them. The
negroes replied with oaths, and, seiz
ing Mr. Gardner beat him severely.
The women,
screamed, and,!ufraid of
assistance arriving, the negroes
seized them, took them from the wagon,
and tying the two eldest, took the youn
gest ot the women, who was about twen
ty-five years old, and the father, bound
their arms, and hastily mounting their
horses disappeared in the woods. The
two women bound to the trees screamed
madly, but no person came to their, as
sistance. After a fearful night of suf
fering and suspense ' daylight dawned.
:bn rfter daylight a farmer drove bv
the helpless couple, and at once went to
their assistance. Unbinding them, they
soon told him their sad story. The
farmer took them in his own wagon,
and hastened back to the village. The
news soon spread, aud in half an hour
a dozen strong men, armed to the teeth,
started out to find the negroes aud their
victims. Taking tho course pointed
out to them by the two women, who
accompanied thcui; they rode for about
three miles through the woods, when
they came upon the father and daughter,
lying on the ground within twenty feet
of each other, and both to all appear
ances dead. Mr. Gardner was covered
with blood, and a bullet-hole found ill
his breast. Miss Gardner was lying en
tirely naked, and bore evident marks of
outrage. Whiskey was at once applied
to both of the victims, and in a short
time they were enabled to be moved.
They were carried back to the village,
and by evening Mr. Gardner recovered
sufficiently to relate the cruelties to which
they had been subjected at the hands of
the barbarous and mercuess negroes.
Mr. Gardner stated that the negroes, five
in number, had taken them rapidly to
the spot where they were found, and,
after dismounting, had tied hira to a
tree, and two of the negroes seized his
daughter, while another proceeded to
outrage her person. Maddened by the
scene, feeble as he was, and numerous
as were the negroes, he attempted to
break his bonds and go to his daugh
ter's rescue. His attempts "were vain,
and he cried out in anguish for help.
One of the negroes, with an oath, told
him he would stop his mouth, and imme
diately fired at him. He was hit, and
lost all consciousness of the hellish
leeds of the negroes. From the ap
pearance ot iMiss "jiaruner, it is piam
that all the negroes must have violated
her person. The unfortunate girl had
not recovered sufficiently when Mr. Stan-
tirfer left to tell her story. It is doubt
ful if she will recover at all. The citi
zens are afraid to allow their women out
of their houses. A perfect reign of ter
ror exists. All who can get away have
gone or arc going. Mr. Stantirfer came
to this place on Thursday for safety.-
We learned last evening that one of the
negroes had been arrested and conveyed
to the jail in Harrison.
From the Charleston Mercury.
Almost every mail brings in reports
from some section of the vilest and
most brutal outrages upon woman and
children. The enormities arc of such
a horrible nature in their details as to
render it impossible, for us to publish
fllPlTl. Neither in Europe, Asia or
Africa, amongst anv white or semi-civ
ilized race would it be possible for such
an amount of appalling and savage bes
tialitv to be committed. Men would
rise in fierce wrath and cleanse the land
with blood. '
The leaders who have brought all this
crime and violence upon the land, and
who now are straining every energy to
briuir about a war of races, have the
assurance to say, "Let us have peace."
We say, too, let us have peace,- but an
other peace than they would give us. We
desire a real peace', order and security for
families from all nameless outrages. V e
desire the South to be such a1 country
that the Northern emigrant may go and
take his family in security, where, the
people of the South may be free from
negro atrocities, and where both may
enjoy the fruits of their industry without
having to bo watched by negro Legisla
tures and taxgatherers. To this end we
must utterly defeat and crush the Radi
cal rarty.

and Col. Wildes, late of the 116th O. V.

the boys of that regiment, addressed the
meeting, and let on a string ol oatnsanu
profane language suitable to the occa
sion. One Democrat we know, proffer
ed a contribution if the immoral speaker
would go to all the townships, as he
thought it would have a good effect.
Come along, Colonel ; perhaps you will

How does the Rev. gentleman, who pre

KaThc Athens Messenger of the
21th ult., says of the meeting at Browns
ville :
"The Republicans up there are wide
awake and of the truest kind. Very
many of the Democrats are tired and
disgiisted with operations of the little
clique about Woodslield that rules the
county and taxes the people enormous
ly to support them in their villainy.
Many in the vicinity of Brownsville are
deserting the party."
There is no less than three distinct
falsehood's in the above; and the item is
a fitir specimen of the production of
Wildes Co., who control and edit the
concern. There - has not been a sin

Radical Extravagance,
The estimation of the expenses of tlir
War' Department for the year ending
June, lS(i! n- they name from under the
hand of the Radical candidate for Pres
ident, were upwards of 870,000,000.
Gen. Grant was then Secretary of War
ad interim, and his name is affixed to the
report enclosing .them. This Radical
party is, therefore, in n douLle son so re
sponsible for them. It has not only leg
islated so as to make this extravagance
necessary, hut its chosen chief reported
them to the Congress which sought to
place luni above the Executive, and yet,
extravagant asvare these estimates for
the military arm of the Government in
time of peace, they fall below the actual
expenses of the War Department as met
month by month from tho Treasury of
the United States. In a recent able
speech by Mr. Tildcn, of New York, he
reproduced the following figures, obtain
ed from the Treasury Department. Tax
payers, look at them, and remember,
that the burden is yours, and imposed
on you by your representatives. Oppo
nents of a standing army, observe thai
your War Department costs you more
than that of the British Empire. Friends
of economy, mark how the rubious poli
cy of Congress has kept the eost of the
military up at an average of eleven mil
lions a month.
These tables should set every producer
in the land seriously to thinking, and his
thought should be followed hy his act ;
for the men who thus squander the
public money With prodigal hand should
be swept from power by the unanimous
voice of the people whose trust they have '
so betrctyed:

Fact vs. Fiction. , ' .
To the fact stated by Johu T. ' iioff, ' i
man that the people are. heavily taxed (
upon their clothing and all their f coin-, '
lorts, tiic . Iroy J'imcs responds with the- ;
fiction tha,t,C0nsre,Jia3 ..removed .tlib; v
tax from manufactures, with certain e$
ceptious. , The fact, h5wcver, still rc-.
mains. Congress removed the tax froia
certain manufactures, but not "for tb
bcueht ol the people. By means of t,he' .
high taritf upon foreign good?, the, New -England
manufacturer is enabled ." to
maintain, his prices just the same as bct!
fore. He, not tho consumer, ets all the'
benefit of the remitted tax. . He. has not
reduced his prices a mill in consequence,
of the tax remission. The farmer, ther
mechanic, the laborer, when he purchases'
hi clothing this fail will find that tthere'
are no benefits for him in the exemption
of fabrics from taxation. He will find,
prices as high as ever. The proof of the
pud- ling is in eating. v - "- '

Tlie Albany.Journal and other Radi' -
cal organs have sq low
an estimate of
masses of the'
people as to seriously assure them that
they pay no taxes to the federal govern-'
tnent because they never "see" the na
tional tax gatherer. The - following
comment upon this assurance was made
at a recent labor reform meeting in
Maine by b. M. iiaywopd, a working-,
man : "A pound of tea is worth in ..Chi
