QueHtlons Tor I lie Northern In dustrlul ClUNtics. Who is it at present keeping whito me chanics and laborers for seeking employ ment in the South? Who is making a barren waste of the most fertile and productive section of the Republic. Why is the burden of taxation so oppres sive and employment so scarce. Why aro there to-day hundreds of thous ands of white men and women in the North, living in dread of starvation within the present year Why aro tho commerce of tho North, and the ship-building interests almost to tally parylizcd? Why is the South threatened with a war of races, and civil law trampled under foot in that section. Why arc millions af whito men not rep resented iu Congress. Why have all the guarantees of the Con stitution been broken down, and the rights of free born Americans subjugated to tho arbitrary will of irresponsible satraps? Why aro thirty millions of whito mon taxen for tho special benefit of a class who pay no taxes on the great bulk of their property? Why should there bo ovor two thousand millions of dollars exempt from taxation ? Why should there be special legislation for one class of the population, to the seri ous injury of the interests of every other ? Why should the great agricultural popu lation of the West be made tributary to the manufacturing lords of Yankee land ? If the national bankers are enabled to make twenty millions of dollars a year out of tho industrial classes hy their speculation in the necessities of life, why are they tol erated? If negroes are fit for freedom, why bos a great poor house system for their support to be kept at tho expense of Northern in dustry? Why is it that the products of the South have fullen off to a great extent? Why are murders and outrages, and rob beries so fearfully frequent all over the South? If tho war was prosecuted for the pres ervation of tho Union, why aro States kept out of it? If tho South is permitted to fall under negro domination, will it be fit for the hab itation of whito mon? Tho industrial classes of tho North will find an answer to all tho questions in tho destructives. It is to them we are indebted for the evils by which the country is threat ened. And tho worst is yot to come. The negro refuses to work, and the great pro ductiveness of tho South is lost to the coun try. The whito men of the freo Statos ore oppressed with taxation, that they may be supported in idleness. Of the four or five hundred millions of dollars which are raised upon the industry of this section every year, a largo portion is used in tho devolish work of reversing tho natural ordor of the races. Working men of tho North, will you, can you endure this infamous work ? Do you not boo that the perjured, plundering, Constitution breaking, law-defying, gang called Congress, is striking at your rights at your freedom, at your dearest iutorosts, through reconstruction. There Lbs not been a single act of legis BLOOMSBURG, PA., WEDNESDAY, lation, a single measure passed in Congress that has not been aimed at you. It is you that the National Banks are fleecing. It is your families who are made to suf fer, that the South may be Africanized and converted into a wildorness. It is out of your pockets that the taxes to pay the interest on untaxed bonds is paid. Nearly, ono half your labor is mortgaged for the support of a privileged class. Your loaf of bread is the cents, because the South instead of contributing to the resources of tho country from the fertile soil, is a drag and tax upon you industry. . Look into Radicalism, and you will find in it the true cause of all the poverty, all tho misery, all the wrongs from which tho whole country is suffering. The romcdy is in you hands, and the time is hastening on when it can be applied. Organize and be prepared for the day of action, the day on which you can settle all sources with the party of ruin and anarchy, the party which seeks to maintain its power through the sacrifice of every right and principlo vindicated in great revolution. Organize for the salvation of the Repub lic, and rescue it from a beastly, degrading, mongrclism. Organize to save the land for white men, and make it the white man's inheritance. Organize to protect yourselves and fam ilies from the conspiracy of an unconstitu tional Congress, and from the nefarious de signs of an unprincipled bondocrscy. Organize for the emancipation of eight millions of our own race and blood, from the most galling, crushing, binding despotism ever inflicted upon a people. Think of what they are to-day suffering. Think of their ruined homes, their waste fields, their prostrate trades, their thousands of poverty-stricken orphans and widows. Think of the fato with which they are men aced. Think of tho outrages perpetrated by a half savage race, instigated to their deviltries by Radical friends and cut-throats. Think of this, and resolve in your hearts that the accursed party which has brought this woe, whioh has brought this flood of evils upon this land, shall, when the day of retribution comes, be crushed into the earth, under the tread of your triumphant majorities. Metropolitan Record. a a a a a Facts for WorUlngmen. While tho producing industries of the country are unjustly taxed, and tho almost intolerable burdens of the war rent upon those who fought the battles and made tbo sacrifices, those who tilled lands to produce supplies, and those who labored in the workshops, the organs of the Radicals are assorting that tho bondholders are the men who pay all our revenues. They stfecringly say that "not one laboring man in evory hundred pays a penny of taxes to the gov ernment directly." True, the laboring man does not pay his taxes directly to the gov ernment, but every man of sense knows that the consumer pays the tax upon every arti cle manufactured by capital. A practical working man, a few days since, handed us tho following, which in itself is a volumo of argument to show that the poor man docs pay taxes : Radical legislation requires the consumer to pay all taxes. It taxes the hat on your head. The boots on your feet. The elothes on your person. The food you eat. The tea and coffee you drink.' Tho pot it is cooked in. The cup you dink it out of. The implements on your farm. The tools you work with. The paper you write on. Tho pen and ink you use. The papers and books you read. The furniture in your bouso. The gas or oil you burn. The coal you consume. The stove you bum it in. Tho match you light it with. The medicine you take. Tho tobacco you smoke., Tho pipe you smoke it in. The dishes on your table. All you oat off them. The laboring man of tho country, who owns a littlo house and lot, which he has earned by toiling from early morning to night, pays State, county, school, and road tax upon it ; while his next door neighbor, who is a bondholder, owning 150,000 in the bonds, pays no taxes whatever, draws inter est in gold, laughs at his unfortunate neigh bor, who has his money in a little home I If the mosses of the laboring men desire the equal taxation of every species of prop erty according to its real value government bonds and other securities included if they wont one cuireney for the government and the peoplo, the laborer and the ofnoe-holdor, the pensioner and the soldier, the producer and the bondholder, they will not vote tho Radical ticket, but will voto for that of the Democracy. A Married lady who was in tho habit of spending most of her time in the society of her neighbors, happened one day to bo taken ill, and sent her husband in great haste for a physician. The husband ran a short distance, and then returned, exclaim- j ing, "My dear, where shall I find you when Iooine back?" A teacher said to a little girl at school : "If a naughty girl should hurt you, like a good girl, you would forgive her, wouldn't you?" "Yos, ma'am," she replied, "if I couldn't catohher!" Bradley, tho nigger jail-bird, is t can didate for Congress in Georgia. But what of that? Is not thiof Butler a member of Congress, and Dan Sickles a shining light? They are exponents of moral idoas. A Thrilling Sketch In the year 1836, the inhabitants living in a district bordering on Rock River, in the northern part of the1 State of Illinois, were much incensed by the depredations of a band of horse thieves who infested that portion of the country. Every exertion had been made to discover the men engaged in the nefarious business, but hitherto in vain, and valuable animals wore stolen, and lost to their owners, in defiance of the utmost vig ilance and care. During such a state of affairs, the citizens residing in the region of tho thieves became thoroughly excited, and were wound up to such a pitch of indignation, that a body of men were formed styled Rangers, whose ex plicit duty was to expunge the distriet of all suspicious characters, and endeavor to put a stop to their depredations. Shortly after this band commenced oper ations word was conveyed to the leader of the Rangers that a valuable horse, whioh had been stolen the night previous, could then be found on the premises of a man named Burt, locked up in the stable. Al though Burt heretofore had been looked upon as an honest man and an upright citi son, yet the captain deemed it his duty to at least examine his farm and learn the truth or fulsity of the report Accordingly he summoned some half dozen of bis Rangers to meet him at a spot not far from Burt's house, and before morn ing set out for the same place himself. Day light was hardly discernible in the east, and the hazy light of coming dawn had not yet penetrated the bottom, where the suspected man resided, as the Rangers, charged with the fearful mission of life or death, silently approached and surrounded tho dwelling. Leaving three of the band to guard the en trance, the captain opened the door and found the missing horse, as had been stated, safely stalled inside. Not a lingering doubt now remained of Burt's guilt, and with a stern determination to make an example of him that would de ter others from a like transaction, tho Ran gers returned to the house. In tho mean time Burt hud risen, and upon coming to the door was seized by those in waiting, end upon demanding the reason was informed by them that a stolen animal was found in his stable, and that ho was considered a thief. Muttering something about "he knew it would come to this at last," ho quietly sub mitted to whatever his captors had in store for him. A short consultation was held, and it was resolved to hang the criminal upon a large elm tree that grow in front of bis own house, it being thought that such an act would strike terror and dismay into the ranks of the horse thieves.- Burt had asked half an hour to prepare for his death, and tho sun had risen in all its golden majesty cro the fatal moment had arrived which would launch him into eter nity. In vain his grayhcaded father and mother pleaded for his life, with trembling tongues they tottered forth from the dwel ling, and kneeling in suppliant mood to his apparently merciless captors. In Tain had the wife of his bosom knelt in tears of agony, and entreated them as husbands to spare bis life, for each Ranger had suffered more or less in person, and they deemed tho ex ample absolutely necessary to deter others, and it seemed as though Burt must die. The dreadful preparations were complet edthe half hour had expired and the criminal was arranged under the limb of a stout elm, over which a rope was thrown, one end being noosed around the prisoner's neck, and the other held by thrco of the Rangers. Then came a moment of dreadful silence, that awful stillness which proceeds the launching of a fellow-being into eternity whilo the three strong men, who held tho rope's end, gazed fixedly upon the captain for the signal. It was given by raising the right arm ; and already the noose was tight ening around the doomed man's neck, when the wifo of Burt issued forth from the house holding an infant a little more than a year old in her arms. Rushing forward, she fell on her knees directly in front of the captain, and raising the child, with arms outstretched, towards him, she exclaimed in tones that would have pierced a heart of steel "If you will not spare him for the sake of his grayhaired sire, or the wife of his bosom, spare him in the name of God for the sako of his infant boy I" Another dead silenco reigned liko a pall over the spot ; then, as though inspired by heaven itself, the child also stretched out its little arms towards its father and exclaimed, in a voice heard by all, tho single word : "Papal" And then, as though despairing of suo cess, huddled into its mothor's bosom, and burst into a sobbing cry. It was more than tho Rangers could stand, and, aftor a short consultation, tho rope was taken from tho criminal's neck, and tho band loft the spot; and Burt became a re formed man through the powerful effect! of his "Infant's Appeal" When intoxicated, a Frenchman wants to dance, a German to sing, a Span iard to gamble, an Englishman to eat, an Italian to boast, a Russian to be affectionate, an Irishman to fight, and an American to make a speech. Tennessee has produced a big nrolite, that frightened people as much as the great snake, and made a deep hole in solid rook, from whioh issued smoke and steam. Par son Brownlow foara it was a message fo him. SEPTEMBER 2,1868. A Wedding Night Shirt It wasn't hardly the fair thing that the boys did to Joe Thompson, the night ho was married, but tho temptation was irre sistible. They could not have helped it to save their lives. I'll tell you how it was. Joe was about the most fancy dressed buck in town ovor nice and particular a per fect Miss Naney in manners, always putting on airs, and more dainty and modest than a girl. Well, when his wedding day came, he was dressed trunk empty, and his pants, especially fitted him as candle moulds, and his legs candles, run into them. Tight was no name for them. Their set was immonse, and he was prouder than a half a dozen pea cocks. "Aren't they nice, boys?" he asked of the two boys who were to he groomsmen, and saw that he threw himself away after the most approved manner. "Stunning! Georgeousl" replied Tom Bennett. "Never saw equal to them. But lsay, Joe, aren't they the least bit too tight? It strikes me that you will have some difficulty in bending, won't you?" "Pshaw, no, they are as easy as an old glove. Seel" To prove the matter, he bent down so as to touch his patent leathers, when crock, crack, followed liko twin reports of a revol ver. "Thunder 1" exclaimed Joo, as he put his band behind and found a rent in the cassi mere from stem to stern. "Thunder I the pants have burst and what shall I do ?" "I should rather think they had," an swered Tom, getting purple in the face, as he endeavored tocontrol bis laughter ; "but there is no time to get another pair. Itonly wants half an hour to the standing up time, and wo have got a mile to go carriage wait ing too." "What shall I do, oh 1 what shall I do?" "I'll tell yon what, if mine would fit you you should have them and welcome, but they are about a mile too big ; they would set liko a shirt on a bean pole. I sco no way but to have them mended." "Who can I get to do it, Tom ?" "Well, I am something of a tailor, and can fix them so they won't show. Hold on a minute, and I'll get a needle and thread." "Can you ? May heaven bless you !" "Off with your coat," commanded Tom, as he came back. "Now lay yourself over on the bed and I'll fix you in short -order. ' ' The command was obeyed; the pants mended ; the coat tails carefully pinned over, so as to conceal the 'distress for rent,' and all went merry as the marriage bell un til Joe followed the bride to tho nuptia' couch. There was only a dim light in tho room, but it enabled Joe, as ho glanced bashfully around, to see the sweetest face in the world the rosy cheeks and bright lips, the lovely and loving blue eyes, and the golden curls just peeping from out the snowy sheets, and he extinguished it altogether, and hastened to disrobe himself. Off came coat, vest, fancy necktie and collar, boots and socks in a hurry, but somehow tho pants stuck. The more he tried tho more they wouldn't oome, and he tugged vainly for half an hour- "Thunder !'.' muttered Joe. "What's tho matter, dear?" came in tho softest of accents from the bed, where some body was wondering if he was ever coming, and, forgetting his accustomed bashfulnoss, he blurted out : "Moll, that cursed Tom Bennett has sew ed my pants, drawers, shirt and undershirt all together 1" "It is too bad I wait a moment my dear." A little stockingless foot peeped out first, then a ruffled night dress, the lamp was light ed, a pair of scissors found, and Joe releas ed ; and althoug-t he denies it, Tom Bennet swears that his wedding shirt was of the shortest possible extent, reasoning a poste riori. . a. a Speak Kindly to lllm. A farmer once saved a very poor boy from drowning. After his restoration he said to the grateful fellow : "Whot can I do for you, my boy ?" "Speak a kind word to me sometimes," replied the boy, as the tears gushed from his eyes. "I ain't got a mother like some of them." A kind word! Think of it. That farmer had it in his powor to give that boy money, clothes, playthings, but the poor fellow craved nothing so much as a kind word now and then. If the farmer had ever so little hoart the boy must.cortainly have had his wish granted, A kind word I You have many such spoken to you daily, and you don't think much of their value ; but that poor boy in your villago, at whom evory other boy laughs, would think he had found a treasure if some one would speak one kind word to him. Suppose you speak it I The next time you meet him, instead of laughing at him, speak kindly to him. Then watch him and sco how he looks. Soo if his eyes do not brighten, and his lips smile Try it. Kind w6rdst They are blessed things. Speak them, children, every day. Scatter them like sunbeams everywhere. They will bless others, and then return to bless your own heart Kind words forever 1 - - a , a Among the gifts to a newly married pair at a town in New Jersey, the other evening, was a broom sent to tho lady, accompanied with the following sentiment: "This trifling gift accept from me, Its use 1 would eommend ; In sunshine use the brushy part, In storm the other end. Inchiasino Democratic enthusiasm Song of tbe Vnlon. Raise the Banner of the Union, Sound its musio, keep the step, 'Tin the signal flag of glory, On tho land and o'er the deep.

Fight for it, our precious Union, Tis the heritage bequeathed, Bought with blooa our fathers treasured, Dearer than the air they breathed. Strike a good blow for the Union, Ye who've loved it long and well ; Old men grey in freedom s service, Let your blows on treason tell. Strike a good blow for the Union, Ye whose hearts with passion glow I Young men panting for distinction, Lead the battle on the foe. Ask ye who despise the Union ? Ask ye who the traitors are? They are those who seek to break it ; Judge them by the fruits they bear. Hatching hate between its sections, Bringing forth fraternal war, Under cover of religion, Such as these the traitors.

When in New Orleans Butler was passing at tho head of some troops, the residence of a very respectable young lady, who, with some lady friends were enjoying the cool air of a balcony. This young lady, whose name wo omit for a reason that will soon appear, was ono of those impulsive, light-hearted, joyous creatures, whose life is made up of smiles and more demonstrative outbursts of joy. Just as Butler himself was opposite, some remark was made, or something visible to the eye of a mirth-provoking character, caused her to break out in a riaging laugh, Butler stopped short his horse, and looking up said, in his rough and repulsive style : "What aro you laughing at?" Surprised at the question, and insulted by tho manner in which it was asked, tho young lady in stantly ceased her laugh, but made no re sponse. Butler turned away, but had pro ceeded but a short distance, when the same clear ringing laugh met tho ear, and turning again, he with still mora brutal insolence demanded: "Young woman, what are you laughing at ?" There was no mistaking his meaning this time, and tho hot blood of the sunny South flushed to the cheek of the maiden as she scornfully replied, "None of your business, sir." Butler, with a threat ening gesture, but no reply, rode away. An hour or two after this a filo of soldiers ap peared at the residence of the young lady with an order for her arrest She was torn from the bosom of her family, taken to the military prison or guard-house, and there kept confined until the men in whose society she was thrown, either as keepers or fellow' prisoners, accomplished her ruin. These facts can be sustained by parties now resid ing at Kendall, Orleans county, N. Y., or by Dr. McLanc, or wifo, and others of New Orleans, the latter having witnessed the transaction related above, from the opposite side of tho street. Excitement at a Circus. A thousand persons gathered under a circus tent ia Flemingsburg, Ky., on the 30th ultimo, and the riders were about to enter the ring, when a rainstorm arose. At first, there was but little excitement among the spectators, but when tho stakes of tho outer canvass gave way, and the immense center-pole of the large one commenced to sway and groan, the sides to flop and give way when the lions commenced to growl and roar, the ele phant to swing his large proboscis around, and the horses to neigh and stamp the confusion was indescribable, and the ex citement the wildest we ever saw. Every body rushed pell mell for the entrance, gentlemen and ladies in a confused mass, calling alternately for help and friends. Of course, on the top of scats some jumped to the bottom, sorao fell through, some were caught and suspended while falling, and a great many out their way through the can vas. At this juncture the elephant broke out among the people and created a terrible excitement. Tho rain was falling in tor rents, tho lightning flashed and the thunder crashed. Men, in their fright, ran against the ticket wagon, over ladies, to and fro. Many of the ladies screamed, fainted and fell' After the storm had abated the great canvass was explored, but no one was found to be seriously injured. - - aa aa. Tbe word "rebels" should never mora be applied to the white men of South Carolina The great Democratic ratification meeting which was addressed by Hampton, Kershaw, and others recently, was held in Columbia, S. C, in tho open air, in the very midst of the ruins created by Sherman's army an immense opening in the very heart of the city-and covered with fire scarred walls and chimneys, as the victorious army left it. It was known that Blair commanded the famous Seventeenth Corpse, which swept Columbia, and yet this vast assemblage of Carolina's sons, ineluding Hampton, whose own house is among the ruins, rent the air with cheers for Seymour and Blair.
