Negro Equality Illustrated.
A great many Eadicals are strongly
in favor of Negro Eqnality-in favor
of -Negroes voting, holding office, and
in favor of the Negro children attend
ing the white schools), and a great
mow a noosed to all this. The
Miw!nr is a irood story relative
rieepinjf equality, which the editor
v, MississiDni Enterprise Star tells
an old friend of his, well known
among the Methodists on Pearl river,
in that State, and which wo hope our
Repuhlican friends in Vinton county,
who are in favor of Negro Suffrage,
will road:
"A fnend has just stepped in who
ffives us the following as a practical
test of the sincerity of the newly con
verted Eadicals. We recommend its
ceneral adoption by those of our col
ored people whose votes and influence
the Radicals are endeavoring to obtain
by a regular systom of equality hood-
WEevnMr. Talley.of the Montgomery
. Conference of the Methodist Episco
pal Church South, who is a "weak
vessel," has been bought up by the
emissaries of the Northern Methodist
Church. In the ignorant zeal ot a
new convert, who, of course, wished
to render some service for his money,
he went into the Summerfield District,
-n A If Mitchell nre-
sides, and began the propagation of
the perieci. equai Uuwm. -B
colored people. This equality ho car
ried beyond Beyond, and, as the legit
imate result, was- lionized by the ne-
Srln old gentleman of the white per
suasion, residing in the neighborhood
where this missionary of equality was
laboring, saw proper to doubt Mr.
Taller s sincerity, and told a favorite
bov an old time house and body ser
vant, who had imbibed great confi
dence in Mr. Talley as a sincere equal
ity man that he had as well keep his
money-if he intended to give Mr.
Tallev any until he could test his
Bincenty. A new idea struck Jack.
Mr Talley was . to stay all night at
Jack's master's. When he retired to
bed, Jack accompanied the reverend
turncoat to his room and held him in
lonff conversation on the equality doc
trine, until Mr. Talley was fully com
mitted to it, and thoroughly sleepy, he
took off his coat ready for bed ; so did

and traots, inouloating their false and per
oioieue lootriuee. LlMlo has ever been done
In the eame way towards counteracting
their influence, except what has been done
by those bold and able writers, Messrs. Van
Evrie. Horton ft Co., New York Citj. Thou-
sands now feel that suoh publications are
indispensibly neoessary. In order to sup
ply what it is belicted is a wide-felt want,
they are now issuing a series of "Anti-Abo
lition Tracts," embracing a oonoise discis
sion of current politioal issues, in such a
oheap and popular form, and at suoh a mere
ly nominal price for 'large quanties, as
ought to secure for them a tery extensive
circulation. We have received two of tne
Traots, "The Six Speoies of Men, with cuts
representing the types of the Caucasian,
Monsol. Malay, American Indian, Esqui
maux, and Negro," and "Free Negroisui; or,
Results of Emancipation in the North, and
ilm West India Islands," which should be
carefully read by every voter in the united

The Past vs. The Present of this
Country. The country was once
united, prosperous, and glorious. ; The
people were free and almost untaxed.
The whole land smiled with happiness.
This it owed 'to' the policy of the
Democratic party. l, Now we are not
united, but we are in spirit and feeling
a divided, discordant, and belligerent
country. Where there was love there
is. now hate! "Where there was free
dom there is now despotism. Where
there was once happiness there is now
nnhatniness and misery. - vvnere
there Was light taxation there is now
the most oppressive the world, ever
saw. .This change in our condition
a change which every body sees ana
knows, is the; fruit of .the Radical
party. It is responsible for the sad
calamities that' have come over the
tififtnle. ; Ih celebrating a day of the
nast we recall these facts. - We pre

than on present debasement and
humiliation. The Gazette does not.

Mr..Ould and' Tn Exchange of
Prisoners. A special irom washing
ton 'of July 24;- says: The ex-rebel
Commissioner of exchange, : Robert
Odd. has entered into the controversy
raised in Congress relative to the ex
change of prisoners during the war.
In a Tetter published to day he says:
r "I did offer in August, laoi, to ae
UVer the Federal sick and . wounded
without requiring, an equivalent, and
urged the. necessity of haste in send
ing for them, as the mortality was ter-
lble. . 1 did otter to deliver irom iu,
100 to 15,000 at Savannah without de-
y. Although this ofler was made in
ugust, transportation was not sent
r them until December. ' During the
terval the mortality was perhaps at
ti greatest hight. If I had not made
e offer, why did the Federal author
ities send transportation to Savannah
fbr 10,000 or 15,000 men?.. If I made
the offer based on the equivalent' why
did transportation carry down for de
livery only the same 3,000 men?' '
