f change, whatever. It is the restoration of
the Union of our fathers that all Southern
men desire."
Ot course if there had been no doubt about
forever keeping the colored people in sla
very, the the secessionists would not hare
went to war to break up the government.
The Union of our fathers was a alaveholding
; Union. This the Sentinel knew, when it
I proclaimed in April, 1880, that it desired
f the restoration of that kind of Union only.
f Stick a pin there, and read the following.
that it would make no more concessions to
ct back to the Union, under the Republi
can party. It wanted to go back on the 23d
only on' the basis of slarery. Read what it
said on the 27 ch inst:
"According to the latest programme,
which is said to embody the ultimatum of
the Radical majority, ability to take the
"bath is one of the most insignificant of the
exactions required. Wc are, first, to adopt
an amendment to the Constitution prevent
ing the State from making any discrimina
tion in its laws on account of color ; second
ly, to accord to ncgraes the right of suffrage
from and alter July 4th, 1866 ; thirdly, to
gree that, bet ween this and that time, there
Is to be no representation for colored persons
not allowed to vote; and then, all these
thiuTs beins conceded, we may be admitted,
provided our representatives can swallow the
test-oath !
We answer, then, finally, that we prefer
beinir excluded from representation, indef
initely, rather than voluntarily make
these
oppressive, unjust ana iniquitous
conces-
8ions."
Our colored friends can now see the reason
why these people who say " the government
robbed them of their slaves," are opposed
and have always opposed equal rights to all
men they were for the Union on the basis
of slavery, and therefore opposed the giving
f a fair chance and even start to the black
man.
And the following is the issue stated by
the Sentinel of the 27th inst. It makes the
issue as to who shall be odious in the eyes
of all men, and denounces all loyal men as
infamous. It said :
" Freedmen's Bureau and Civil Rights
Bills are to crowd our statute books, in high
"handed scorn and defiance of the Constitu
tion, the rights of the States and of tho citi
zens. And we must stand dumb, like sheep
before the shearers, in the face ( these
things, for fear that some sensitive patriot,
far or near, will distrust our " loyalty," and
call us " odious" and "traitors !" And this
Is to continue indefinitely !
So surely as that President Johnson shall
Jive to wage to a full and final issue his war
against these men, their injustice will recoil
upon their own heads. They will become
odious in the eve of history for ages to come.
Posterity will stand aghast at their blind
ness and their wickedness."
Now what has been the verdict of the
jople of the United States 1 Who is odious
in their sight t What kind of war did the
.Sentinel mean, when it said the President
would wage such an one to a full and final
issue ? We can understand it now, why it
was so defiant that paper believed that Mr.
Johnson would rally the rebel hosts once
more, and enter the field of battle against
the Republicans for the reestablish ment of a
slaveholder's Union. That was its calcula
tion. On the 2nd of May, I860, it spoke as fol
ows :
" The programme of the Committee of Re
construction is, what we were prepared to
expect, a monstrous scheme of utter degra
dation and ruin to the South, without any
mixture of charity or humanity. If this
monstrous scheme is adopted, it must be
without the support of any State of the South
or of the conservative people of the North."
On the 3d day of May, 1866, it published
the following. Herein we can see its venge
ful spirit plainly portrayed :
The course which they (the Republicans
in Congress.) are pursuing, if successful, will
result in the extinguishment of all regard
and affection, on the part of our people, to
wards the Government. Thev can ieel no
attachment for one which only holds them tc
oppress. The Union, thus patched up. will
be merely nominal ; while in reality it will be
discordant, dissevered and antagonistic,
But we cannot believe that such diabolical
counsels can ultimately prevail. We choose
rather to believe " that a day of retribution
is at hand," and that the vengeance of the
people will speedily descend upon tho au
thors of this threatened ruin. We shall be
much deceived, if the result of the elections.
this Fall, in the Northern States, does not
teach them a lesson that will not soon be
iorgotten, ana winch will oe the precursor
of their final exodus from the stage of action
which they have disgraced. They will leave
nought behind but a record steeped in infa
my."
On the 8th of May, 1856, it spoke as fol
lows :
" There is no sincerity in their schemes of
.reconstruction. Thev know that the South
will not accent the abject and disgraceful
conditions imposed, and this refusal they
will make, for the meanest partisan ends,
the pretext for indefinite exclusion. Their
solo intent and purpose is to defraud the
South of her political rights, in order to the
maintenance of their vile party ascendancy,
while holding her most rigidly to all her ob
ligations under the Constitution."
And the following of the same date shows
how it regarded the negroes. " If you'll be
have yourselves, we wont kill you," is the
substance of the following:
" The Washington correspondence of a
Boston newspaper says that the South is
overrun by emissaries from the North, who
are encouraging the negroes to form secret
associations and to make public parades,
demonstrations and celebrations." There is
no doubt of the fact and the recent bloody
occurrences in Norfolk and Memphis are dis
tinctly traceable to the covert influence of
such mischievous counsels and to the action
of the Congress and the Northern abolition
press. The negroes, if left alone, would re
ceive all proper protection in person and
rights from those who. are their natural
friends, and there would be neither distur
bance nor collision. It is impossible to pre
dict what evils will happen under the fanat
ical pressure that is being brought to bear
upon them daily."
We hear that certain persons are now en
gaged in offering certain influential colored
gentlemen offiees of profit or trust, if they
will come over to their side. See what that
paper said May 12th, 1866 :
" At the same time that the Radicals are
clamoring for negro suffrage, they propose
to disfranchise, for a term of yean, every
man who participated in the revolution.
This is the logical -tendency of all their
schemes. The government is to be turned
over to the blacks.- Tkey are to do the vo
ting, and, of course, hold the offices. If no
nan of the South who took part in the war
is allowed to vote for .members of Congress,
or for President or Vice President, or any
other Federal officer, of eourse within a very
'nail fraction of the whole male population
i the Southern States will be excluded.
under such a regulation, and with the test
oath m force, how do .tlieie wise Jacobins
expect members of Congresa to be elected I
Who is to vote for them and : who is to be
voted for t The effect will be to totally de
prive the South of all representation, unless
by negroes. We hare no fear that so mpn
Btrous a proposition will receive the sanction
of the American people."
Of the same date is the following :
" If there be any in the North so credu
lous as to think the South will agree to ne
gro suffrage as a measure through which she
is to regain Congressional representation,
let us allow, when the occasion may offer,
how little they know Southern men. If the
Radicals shall say to the South, " Let the
negro vote, and you can again have a voice
in the legislation of the country," the South
may, with one will and accord, say " No."
The Sentinel of May 15th published as fol
lows :
" In the Washington Chronicle of the 11th
and 12th., Forney quotes largely from Ex
Provisional Gov. Holden, to the prejudice of
the President and his policy of restoration.
Forney has not been slow to perceive, what
is now notorious in North-Carolina, that
Gov. Holdeu's sympathies are with the Rad
icals in their programme of proscription, dis
union and ruin, and he commends him ac
cordingly, as " a patriot honored by all true
men."
We republish the following from the same
paper of the 24th ot May, I860, to show how
it inflamed the public mind against Congress :
" The spirit of this body grows no better.
The ready adoption of resolutions or meas
ures which look to the deeper humiliation of
the South, may be designed to alarm us,
simply with the view of making us surren
der quietly to their purpose in regard to ne
gro suffrage. Feeling that it is impossible
to subordinate the white people of the South
to the support of a party which has constant
ly sought their ruin, for the sinister purpose
of holding on to the reins of government,
they have persuaded themselves that their
only hope is from the colored population ;
they seem ready to adopt any system of tax
alion however oppressive, or any scheme of
humiliation however degrading, to bring us
to their own terms."
Our colored friends well know that the
Civil Rights Bill is one of the great bulwarks
of their liberty.
Here is what the Sentinel of May 21st,
1866, said against it :
"The civil rieht's bill exhibits both the
same bad spirit and the same lack of states
manship in the Congress, and btth will prove
an irremediable evil until repealed."
The Sentinel of Oct. 2nd, 1866, published
an article headed " W. W. Ilolden's compli
city with Tliad. Stevens," from which wc ex
tract the following :
"In a recent speech of Mr. Stevens, deliv
ered at Lancaster, Pa., on the 27th of Sep
tember, only five days ago, he explained the
history ot what he calls "the entitling act."
It will be recollected that Mr. Stevens, and
those who act with him, boldly affirm that
they will not consent to the admission of the
Southern States simply because they adopt
the Howard amendment. He declares that
all of them must adopt universal negro suf
frage, before he will give his consent, and,
even then, he does not pledge himself to vote
for their admission, but suggests other ruin
ous and humiliating conditions. He says
that while he was drafting the enabling act.
Gov. Hamilton, of Texas, Gov. Holden, of
North-Carolina, and other Southern loyalists,
came to his help.
It will be recollected that, last Spring, af
ter President Johnson sent in Mr. llolden's
nomination as Minister to San Salvador, he
went to Washington City and remained there
ten or fifteen days. This was the time,
Thad. Stevens says, that Mr. Holden, with
other loyalists as above stated, came to help
him to fabricate that enabling bill that they
insisted that he should put in the bill uni
versal negro suffrage; that Hamilton and
others were with him at a caucus one night,
when Hamilton said, (Stevens quotes his
very words,) " give them that law. and, al
though we are now in the minority, and I
dare not go home, for I should he murdered
give us that bill, and we can carry Texas
on the side of the Union by twenty-five thou
sand majority." Stevens says further, " Gov.
Holden told me the same, and so did every
body except the Virginians !"
Our friends further recollect the manner
in which the negroes of this County were
spoken of in the campaign last fall how
their frieuds were persecuted and abused.
The Sentinel encouraged this thing, and en
dorsed Mr. Bledsoe's remarks as follows, in
its issue of Oct. 2nd. It said :
" Mr. Bledsoe's analysis of the Howard
amendment was able and masterly, and pro
duced a decided impression upon the au
dience." Mr. Bledsoe was particularly abusive of
the colored people. And so were all the
Sentinel's friends at that time. Indeed, on
the 18th ot Octoberit styled them the " God-
eursed sons of Hum!" What respectable
colored man can trust the new professions of
love made by such a man or such a paper,
though he be a preacher, so-called.

good will result from its deliberations, and
that many souls may be saved through the

THE CABLE HYMN.
Now sing the Herald of the Lord I
" This world's long strife is done ;
United by the whisp'ring cord
The Continents are one !
And one in soul, as one in blood
Shall all their peoples be
The hands of peaceful brotherhood
Now grasp beneath the sea."
From clime to clime, from shore to shore,
Shall thrill the mystic thread;
A new Prometheus steals once more
The fire that wakes the dead.
And through the depths of Ocean's den
Or mountain peaks o'er run ;
As round the world the thoughts of men
Haste, as the thoughts of one.
Beat on ! quick pulse of thunders beat !
While beach communes with beach :
Fuse nations in thy fervent heat,
And melt the chains of each I
Loud terror of the heights above
Speed words, through wires below
Speed cooing, like a carrier-dove
Man's ei rands to and fro.
Through Orient seas, o'er Afric's plain,
And Asian mountains borne;
Wing'd Spirit of the artful brain,
Its "seeds of Light" are sown.
The poles unite the zones agree,
All tongues ot bick'ring cease :
When hushed the sea of Gallilee
The word Christ spoke was Peace
Big Ilanl of Counterfeiters.

AT TBS WONDERFOIi REVELATIONS
MADE BY THE GREAT ASTROLOG1ST,
Madame IX. PEKItlGO.
She reveals secrets no mortal ever knew. She
restores to happiness those who, from doleful
events, catastrophes, crosses in love, loss of re
lations and friends, loss of money, &c., have be
come despondent. She brings together those
long separated, gives Information concerning ab
sent friends or lovers, restores lost or stolen
property, tells you the business you are best
qualified to pursue and in what you will be most
successful, causes speedy marriages and tells you
the very day you will marry, gives you the name,
likeness and characteristics of the person. She
reads your very thoughts, and by her almost su
pernatural powers unveils the dark and hidden
mysteries ot the future. From the 6tars we see
in" the firmament the malefic stars that over
come or predominate in the configuration from
the aspects and positions of the planets and the
fixed stars in the heavens at the time of birth, she
deduces the tuture destiny of man. Fail not to
consult the greatest Astrologist on earth. It
costs you but a trifle, and you may never arain
have so favorable an opportunity. Consultation
fee, with likeness aud all desired information, $1.
Parties living nt a dis.ance can consult the Mad
ame by mail with equal safety and satisfaction to
themselves, as if in person. A lull and explicit
chart, written out, with all Inquires answered and
likeness euclosed, sent by mailou receipt of price
above mentioned. The strictest scres. wil be
maintained, and all correspondence returned or
destroyed. References of the highest order furn
ished those desiring them. Write plainly the day
of the month and year in which you were born,
enclosing a small lock ot hair.

There cometh glad tidings ot joy at all,
To young and to old, to great and to small ;
The beauty which ence was so precious aud rare,
Is free lor all, and all may be fair.
By the use of
CHASTELLAR'S
WHITE LIQUID
For Improving and Beautilying the Com plexion.
The most valuable and perteet preparation in
use, for giving the skin a beautiful pearl-like tint,
that is only found in youth. It quickly removes
Tan, Freckles, Pimples, Blotches, Moth Patches,
Sallowncss, Eruptions, and all impurities of the
kin, kiudly healing the same leaving the skin
white and clear as an alabaster. Its use can not be
detected by the closest scrutiny, and being a veg
etable preparation is perfectly harmless. It is
the only ojtiele of the kind used by the French,
aud is considered by the Parisian as indispensa
ble to a perfect toilet. Upwards of 30,000 bottles
were sold during the past year, a sufficient guar
vutee of its efficacy. Price only 75 cents. Sent
by mail, post-paid, on receipt of an order by

REASON WHY THE
AMERICAN WATCH
Made at WALTIIAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
19 THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
composed of SOLID PLATES. No jar n in
terfere with the harmony of its working and no
sudden shock can damage its machinery. Every
piece is made and finished by machinery (itself
famous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ness) and is therefore properly made. The watch
is what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
SIMPLE, STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
cept some high grades, too costly forgeneral use,
foreign watches arc chiefly made by women and
boys. Such watches are composed of several
hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
and require constant repairs to keep them in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
" anerss" "lepines" and "English Patent Le
vers," are perfectly well aware of the truth of
this statement.
At the beginning of our enterprise more thnn
ten years ago, it was our first object to make a
thoroughly good low priced watch for the mill
ion, to- take the place of these foreign imposi
tions ; the refuse of foreign factories, which were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
less elsewhere.
How well we have accomplished this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public trial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
given such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is eontinued with in
creased facilities for perfsct work, we are at pre
sent engaged in the manufacture of watches et
the very HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO
CHRONOMETRY, unequalled by anything hith
erto made by ourselvus, and unsurpassed by any
thing made in the world. For this purpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected an
addition to our main building expressly for this
branch of our business, and have filled it with the
best workmen in our service. New maahines
and appliances have been constructed which per
form their work with consummate delicacy and
exactness. The choicest and most approved ma
terials only are used, and we challange compari
son between this grade of our work and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not pretend to
sell our watches for lbss monbt than foreign
watches, but we do assert without fear of contra
diction that for the samb monbt our product is
incomparably superior. All our watches of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, and this warran
tee is good at all timas against us or our agents
in all parts of the world.
CAUTION.- -The public are cautioned to buy
only of responsible dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
