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,

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
Rally, froemen, round tho Union I
Hark I the battle cry we hear ;
'Tis the covenant of our fathers,
Sound it far and sound it near.
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.
Beat tbe long roll of the Union,
Wake the guards and man the walls;
Drop the drawbridge of the Union,
Brains for ballots, votes for balls.
An Episode In the UlMtorjr of
uenerai sutler.
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.

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. Why?
Because Blair fought for a Constitutional

ask no more than constitutional liberty.
Will the American peoplo refuse to restore
