Orilg of the Black League jS 'the State of Mississippi. UNION BROTHEItJlOODS, ETC. N. O. Bulletin, eint. " This Republican sheets of the Nortl~ accepting the mendacious reports of their Southern coajutors, have pre. sistentlyiisrepre seuted. every;,effori made ly the white, people of the South to secure an honest erection and admfointration, And In iao one particular have they labored-, more streunously than they hlave to create a" falal inpression concerning the 'object;'bf tlie "White Leauge," Ig 'nodrathe fect that' acouatnr leafgue on the.part of the blacks has existed ever since the year 8(idi . A brief history of the origin of the Black League in the State of Mis sissippi may contribute, in some miens ure, to correct the opinions formed in consequence of these false statements. Soon. after the close rV the war the ounth was flooded with a clasp nf ad vdnturers who diiscovered, in tihl ig irg!ance and superstition of the negro, a sure means of elevating and en riching themselves. They began by alarming their dupes pith reports that the white men intend to de rive them of their recently.acquired lib erties; that they were resolvqd to grant thenm no privileges under the law, and that all their efforts were being directed to the end of reduieing them again to slavery; Under the specious pretext of providing a main. tenance for widows, orphans au4 sn perannuated negroes, they orgasized societies which were given the ifame of "Union. Brotherhoods." Small sums of money were exacted from each member, ostensibly for the pur pose of providing a benevolent fad, bit, inreality, to further the ends of their carpetrbag leaders, These brotherhoods were soon transfi~med into secret organizations, anid assumid the name of "Black LeMgue.'.. Imposing upon the efedu. lityandesuperstition of the negooes, they, ound them by the most terible oathp tosecrecy; and instructe ithem in digns, passe-words, and all' the other forms of secret orders. So thd6eagh J ly under the control of these leagunes were the members, and even ;thone who were not members, that they dare not take the responsibility of acting independently of their instruec tions. When the constitution of 18%6 was defeated, by a majority of 7000, in Mississippi, numbers of negroes were prevailed upon, and assurances of protection against outrage from their fellow-negroes, to vote against it. They trembled te they polled their vote, and invariably exclaimed that they looked'for protection to the white people. In many instances they were really attacked, and their lives threatened, while, at the same time, they were upbraided with hav ing violated their oaths. In all sub sequant elections not one of them has dared to vote . otrary .to the diretijon of hip league., ,Just lefore eletiop a courier passes from planta tied to' plantation, and reads an edict, puripfdtng to be an' addreds from the Cnttal -.Hepubliean Committee, butl what in,realty is a secret orderfroa the headquarters of the league.

We see that mnly of our cotempo. raries are begiuning to advocate a white man', party, a party based on color, which shill include all the whites if the Stal regardless of old party ties, name of fflliation. This is an issue that the conservative- or Democratic press' and people have tried earnestly to tave off, and have used every mInean epnsisteut with lion. or to avoid, and have approached even to the verge eo'timidity in their desire to prevent patty lines from be ing based upon races This line was early establihsed by the Radical and they have been as e ldulous in keep ing up and strengthning this it as we have been in trying to break it down, in our siqeere belief that it could only be productive of mischief, and probably Iii the end beget an animo sity that wotfld prove destructive of the best interests of our cotntry. But the issue is upon us and we can not longer avoid it if we would. We have tried: onciliation, We have nused reason, argument, persuasion, all in vain. Conciliationl and copromise has met with coldness and distrust, reason and argument with sneers. The negro is thoroughly inqculate4 with the idea that the White Muan' interest is necessarily antagonistic to his own, and lsa been firmly impres ed by his scalawag and carpet.bag leaders anll instructors, that what ever ii to the' white man's interest, is beyond all question to his disadvan tage. They have been taught to re gard with suspicion any and every thing that came from the white man, and well have they learned thelesson, He will believe'teadily, whatever any straggling adventurer, claiming to be long to the loyal al.leagu, may choose to tellohim, if it be but something against or detrimentaltto the interest or honor of the Southern white manr. To convince the colored man that we were not opposed to Northern man and a Radtcal, for the Gubernatorial Chair, believing him a good man, who would do justice to both sides, aid again, giving away to his prejudice, because, he was a brother-in-law of that Mahonmet of this worship, Gen. Grant. What was the renst of this concession! The negro voted dead against him, because, the white man souported him. ,., Hdw uchk longes must it take ti whilte peolet to unde'statid that tfis Color Line is already established, and' drawn in, the deepest and darkest hues. We may. hut our eyes, and atteonpt to ignore it, but it will not alter the fact that it is so. The Radicals have drawn thetine linid arrayed the ne-1 groes in solid ranks, with a strict cen sorship to prevent " their, straying. Their Leagues are strictly organized, and bind theim'b tie strongest oaths that they kdow rhow to administer. Every negroio.

In an article criticizing the recent Speech of Senator Morton at Terre Haute, the St. Louis Republican re marks: In vain.does Senator Morton with carefully judggled phrase invoke new politic life for himself and new pros. pect for his fortunes from the trans. portation question. The memory of Louisiana whom he struck down in his pride and power, haunts him. Even while he prates of the "wrong of the farmer," the pitifnll face of the stricken Commonwealth is upturned to him in, her agony, and upon it is written the story of wrongs of the farmer are almost trivial. No mabI may escape aXemesis, and such is, Louisiana to Morton. The memory of her woe is branded upon the muids of men as with a searing Iron, and with the smarting brand his atd 'in Ineffaceably coupled. We ase not ofithesewho ceaselessly yearn for lyeange. , There are Wted who ha-stlpned in the way of oppressing Secnquered people, who can be and ate freely forgiven for the sake of their reletance, told in good works even at the eleventh hour.
