To the Laboring Men of the
Eleventh Congressional
The Jackson Standard and
nil other Mongrel papers iu
tins Congressional District are
htroncr advocates of a liigli pio
tective tariff; and all favor the
the nomination of a high pro
tective tariff man for Congress.
II. S. Bunily, they say, is "sound
on tlic tariff." All arc coutin
millv talking about "protection
n!nCf iho ivmncr labor of
England," and want a tariff so
high that English Iron cannot
be brought and sold intoj this
country, for less than it can be
manufactured here. "A high
tariff," they say, "increases the
wages of laborers." Let us
look at this radical party
iLotnntn " "Rvnrv one of
lliese same papers are in favor
of importing Chinese and Nig
gers into this district to take
the places of the laboring men
at the furnaces, manufactories,
workshops, and on the farms,
whom they can employ at less
than one-half tbe rates now
paid American audjlrish labor
ers. l)o you see, poor furnace
laborer, how the Radical party"
is ''protecting" you ? The
party is "protecting" the capi
talists, and asking you year
after year to vote to keep a
class of men in office to rule
mr vnn with an iron rod.
They care nothing for you
your votes are all they want.
Around they come to you, each
year, and tell you the Demo
crat", if they should be elected,
will reduce the tariff on iron
so low that all the furnaces will
be compelled to stop, and you
will be thrown out of employ
ment. How clever it is in fur
nace managers and congression
al aspirants to tell you such
talcs, and ask you to give capi
tal "protection," while these
capitalists and furnace propri
etors and oflico seekers are in
the act of placing Chiucso and
niggers in your places, who
work for almost nothing, and
letting you and your families
starve. That is the kind of
"high protective tariff" they
are in iuvor or. ureauiuny
alarmed about the "pauper
labor" of Old England, they
aro indeed. Never do we read
in one of these Mongrel parly
papers one word against the
votes of laboring men being'
given to "protect" the Yankee
capitalists and bloated Bond
hold era of New England. No,
sir; never. They must be
protected; the laboring man
at the furnace, in the work
shops, on the railroad, on the
farm, and everywhere else,
must work ton hours each day
and have one-third of his mon
ey taken out of his pockets ev
ery Saturday night to pay
interest on bonds and to "pro
tect" the capitalists.
Can you ever again go to the
polls and vote for continuing
this Radical party in power?
Or, iu other words, kiss the
boot that is kicking you out of
employment and out house and
home i Can you see now where
this party is leading you to ?

MONDAY, JULY 4, 1870.
Mr. Chairman: Ladies and Qentlc-mcn
Four and ninety yours ago this
day the oppressions and indignities
upon the American Colonies by tho
Mother Country bore, as their choic
est fruit, the Declaration ol inde
pendence to which you havo just
listened. Every Biicccoding anni
versary of tho dny.thus mado mem
orable, has been with us a nntionul
holiday. From tlio 4th of July. 1770,
when tho old bell of Independence'
Fall rang out tho velcomo news, to
this 4th of July, 1870, it lias been a
day set apart Jroni its icnows in
honor of tho crent event, and of the
men who then declared and after
wards achieved American Indepen
dence. It is a custom winch should
over bo held sacred. It Rives play
to tho best and loftiest feelings of
our nature, and gives tone and vigor
to that sentiment or nationality
which, dying out, would bo a too
suro sign of national decay. Wo
uro uot prone, as a people, to slop
aside from tho leutcn track of cv-ory-day
life and business to indulgo
iu holidays. The jinglo of gold, or
tho rustling of greenbacks, is tho
sweetest music to our cars, and move
ns moro than tho inspiring strains
of "Yankco Doodle." Not that wo
lovo our country less, but that wc
lovo our money moro! Stern ne
cessity alone can break the spell,
and call out tho grand features of
American character. Tor this, if
for no other reason, wo should at
least atone for tho fewness of the
days given to national sentiment
and fueling by an increased spirit
and interest in tlioso wo havo.
Tho day wo celebrato is the
brightest in our history. Tho grand
work, wlioso glory it reflects, was
tho result of no hasty action, or the
work of feeble hanqs. Almost a
century bas elapsed, and tho rever
ence for tho sentiments it embodies,
and the admiration for tho wisdom
it contains, do but gather increase
with tho year.
Moro than ton years beforo the
colonies declared tho independence
of tho Mother Country, tlicro were
muttcrings of tho revolutionary
storm. As early as 1705, when the
Stamp Act was passed, it could bo
heard. Meetings wo lield, and a
determined though courteous spirit
of opposition was manifested. Jtcs-
olutions, protesting against it, were
passed in New York, Massachusetts
and other colonics. In the Virginia
Assembly, wliich was then in ses
sion, Patrick Henry presented res
olutions declaring tho exclusive
right of tho colonics to tax them
selves, and defended them in a
speech famous for its wondrous clo
tjueiico,nnd for its threatening warn
ing to Gcorgo tho Third. His res
olutions woroiinsscd, and tho alarm
snrcad throughout America.
"This," says Bancroft, "is tho way
tho firo beiran in Virginia. Of the
American colonies .Virginia rang
tho alarm bell, Virginia gavo the
sitrnal for tho Continent."
Tho devolution was of slow
growth. Thcro was moro than ten
years of interrupted aggressions
before tho 4th of July, 177G. Tho
Stamp Act was repealed, arid Amer
ica breathed freely again. 13ut tho
system of tyranny had been inaug
urated, and it continued until Atncr
ica rebelled. Troops were stationed
among them, at their expense, and
without their consent, rarliamcnt
taxed tea, and other commodities
Tho colonies petitioned tho King
again and again, couching their as
sertion of their rights in tho most
respectful language, backed by irre
futable arguments and reason, and
asking redress of their gricvancos
But tho King and English nation
woro deaf to all appeals, blind to
tho signs of revolt, and at case in
their fancied security. England
litllo thought bor fair possessions
this Bido of tho water could bo
wrested nwny ; that her tyranny
could drive us from her. Wo were
of no blood, and ono language
Wo woro proud of her h istory, and of
her errontness. Sho had in us ono of
the brightest jowoU in her crown.
Wo asked for nothing butour rights
Our appeals wcro treated with con
tempt. Wo asserted our rights as
freoman, and tho long, slow night of
oppression was "swept away by the
first sharp volley on .Lexington
Woro they right to thus appeal
to the God of Battles? Tho foun
ders of IhcHo colonics had long years
beforo boon driven forth by Jng-
and's oppression, and had conquer
ed tho wilderness of tho new world
in their search for civil and reli
gious libcrlv. A handful of heroic
" . V . .
men they pmutou hero tho germ ol
a mighty nauon. l orsnlting homo,
and friends, and kindrod, and un
polled by no grcod of gain or pow
er, they fought stop by stop tho
savago wilds and Rtill moro savage
men of Uio How World. It wns tho
boautiful vision of liberty that lured
them on. It wns that they might
worship God according to the dic
tates ofthoir own conscience. Eng
gland's cruilty drovo thorn from
her, and England's power nffordod
them no protection. They held and
cultivated tho land which they had
conquorod. It wns from tho first
dedecatcd to freodom. It grow and
prospered. Its population and
wealth increased. Tho hunting
grounds of tho savago gavo placo to
city, and town, and cultivated fiolds,
and tho church and school honno
now stood where tho smoke of tho
camp fire had so long been the only
sign of lifo. Then it was that Eng
land's band was reached forth to
soiza and govern tho fair possessions
which were tho fruit of bo much
toil and sacrifice. Then it was she
claimed what hod been so gallantly
won. Governors, appointed in
England, woro sent to rule them,
and it was not long until tho indus
try and thrift of the colonies wcro
taxed to support her homo govern
mont. English troops, comainndod
by English officers, wero quartered
upon them. Taxation was enforced,
and representation denied. And
then followed tho long list of wrongs
and grievances which woro 80 clear
ly and truly stated in the Declara
tion of Independence. Ever)' other
means had failed. Expostulation,
cntroatv. anrumont, and reason had
been triod. Thcro was nothing loft
them but tho "wager of battle.
Was tho causo trivial? It was
for liberty and right they unsheath
ed tho sword, and risked their nil
in tho unequal strife It was'thcir
cause, tho principles for which thoy
fought, that gave tho glory to their
struggle Thoy woro men of fur
socing wisdom. They knew that
from such covert, and apparently
insignificant attacks liberty had
over fallen. They feared not a bold
and open attack upon their liberties,
hut they dreaded, with just appro
hension, theso silent and stealthy
encroachments upon their rights.
They cxhaustod every peacablo
means of defonso, and tho verdict of
history, and tho univorsal acclaim
of mankind, has justified thoir ro
sort to tho sword.
Tho struggle began. Tho thir
teen colonics, without nn army,
without a navy, without monoy, tho
sinews of war, with a weak mid in
efficient government, united only
by their common wrongs nnd com
mon sufferings, rallied to arms in
tho sacred causo of liberty against
the mightiest power in the world.
Relying on tho justico of thoir canso,
with faith in an Ahviso Providence,
and. remembering that tho raco was
not always to tho swift, or tho bat
tle to tho strong, they arrayed thoir
puny forces against armies, power
ful in discipline and overwhelming
in numbers, against benerals world
renowned for their military genius
and skill, ugainst a Navy which
had given to England tho proud
titlo of mistress of tho seas, and
against almost inexhaustible moans
aud appliances of warfare.
Ihen camo tho assembling of the
menwl o .c wisdom jhad lorceccn the
inovitablo necessity of tho struggle,
nnd who had plcdgod thoir lives,
their fortune, and their sacred hon
ors to the cause of freedom. On the
4th day of July, 177C, they publish
ed to tho world tho Declaration of
the Independence of the American
Colonics. Ihc stru'"'lo bad com
menced, but this was tho birthday
of American Independence

Speech of the Democratic
Candidate for Secretary of
William Heisley, Esq.,
Democratic candidate for Sec
retary of State, was the Fourth
of July orator at the celebra
tion in Cleveland. In the course
of hia speech he addressed him
self to the same subject, and in
language that will elicit a cor
dial response from his party in
Ohio. We quote this extract
from Mr. Ileislcy's speech :
The United States for many
long years have been the ref
uge and nsylum of the oppress
ed people of the old world, and
it may truthfullv be eaid that
m no country m the worm lias
labor been so well rewarded
and the dignity of toil so up
held. And, in trutli, every
country depends to a great ex
tent on the laboring man for
its prosperity and weal. Oli
ver Goldsmith has beautifully
"Thin a siirlnrlneosmnr flourish nnfl mnv fall,
A breath can ninke thetn iisiiliieathhath made.
Itutobolil pcusniitry.thofr country's prnio.
W lien ouco destroyed can never bo supplied.!'
The nation that destroys the
disunity and thrift of labor
thrusts a dagger to its own
heart. They are the men who
fell forests and fight battles.
They make railroads aud dig
canala. They clear up farms
and make the desert bloom and
blossom. -'''" -
The workingmcn of the Uni
ted States havo more respect
and moro liberty than in any
country in tho world. A very
largo proportion of them own
their own homes, and are in
quite comfortable circumstan
ces. So long as we thus pay
labor its just respect and re
ward it with a just and fair
compensation we will be bless
ed with a class of workmen
such as we now have honest,
faithful, industrious and intelli
gent. While we should, as a
rule, offer a free nsylum to all
nations of the earth, we should
nevertheless be very cautious
about how we extend an invi
tation to that class of people
who would bo no valuable ac
quisition to the morals of our
The Chinese seem to be in
tending to flock to our shores,
and find here that elysian field
of prosperity that tho celestial
empire has failed to furnish
them. The labor to be per
formed in America can easily
be done by tho civilized peo
ple of the earth, and it is any.
thing but wise of us to hold
out inducements to these Pa
gans to come here, They ore
a people ot loose morals, and
will never be any honor to our
community. They can subsist
on the merest morsel of food,
and report says that they de
rive great pleasure from eating
vermin. The truth is, they can
come here and labor in our
workshops for half what is a
reasonable compensation to our
own mechanics, and tho result
will, bo that, if we encourage
their importation, wo will im
poverish and finally destroy our
own workmen wlioso homes
are here, and who aro more en
titled to tho blessings of our
abundance than theso Fagans

er of the United States have
borne their full share of tbe
hardships and trials through
which we have passed, and it

others to take the food and rai

dren. I believe it is the duty

There is no justice in the
argument that we should em
ploy the labor which we can
procure the cheapest, so long as
the workman will tako a fair
remuneration for his labor.
When our own mechanics and
laborers exact an exorbitant
compensation it will bo time
enough to think of filling their
places with with these Chinese
laborers, and turning our own
people adrift to subsist as best
they may, but, in the present
condition of the hibor interests
of our country, there is no need
whatever of taking such a step,
and I hope that every man who
desires the welfare of the
American people will write and
speak again this wrong. The
Golden State of California has
experimented with the Chinese,
and declares them the most
baleful element in their society.

The Indians.
. If reports i'rom the Indian
country, forwarded by Gener
al Sheridan, nrc to be relied on
as correct, an extensive Indian
war is to be feared. Bauds of
Sioux and Arrapahoes are spo
ken of as already on the war
path. It thus seems that Red
Cloud nud his party are not
capable of controlling the
young men of their tribes. If
nn Indian war should prove
unavoidable, it should be mado
vigorous and the Indians bo
severely dealt with. There is
little doubt that there fire some
Indian bands that are entirely
ungovernable and ready nt any
fancied wrong, or at the prompt
ing of 'ambition or the dcsiie
for plunder, to mahc war, and
when beaten by our troops, to
"talk peace." Such bands should
be severely punished. It is
the only way of inspiring the
Indians with such a wholesome
fear of the Government a.s will
keep them quiet and peaceable.
