Hut it set ms that Ih* is lost to ail sense of shame. He doca not seem ! to rvnicntlw-r that he is now working against the interest of these friends, •and that he is making Herculean cf • fort* to rivet on them the chains ot a galling an oppressive government. Oh, to what depths can some men descend for their own aggrandise I ment! It seems almost im -rcdible that we should have men in our midst w Ito art* willing to oppress and | degrade the very men who ha 1 up | hold and honored* them, lint we have such,aud Honest Conviction* is a lair *p« i inicn ot the lord. Honest Convution* went on to • tell the negroes about the taXcs that he was itmi|M llyd to coiled Iron* them uruler the lawa of l*Mht, while he was Sheriff.

X<>w, llohhy, if some Democrat had made use of the alsive remarks in a spec, h, aganmt stum* colored man, who w as a Kadieal, would not you and your |>arty have raised a terrible howl alnuit fraud and intimi dalion, and have threatened the white |>eople of old Copiah with Imyoneta tor violating the Knforce merit Act? We think you would llohhy, you would ha\e denounced it in the most hitter terms ks an out rage, and have abused your race lor resorting to such means. If our mer chants should refuse to credit a ne gro liecauwe he was a Itadiial, or one of our farmers should refuse to em ploy them lui-aiise they were Uadi it-als, what ahowlyou would send up i to Washington City, and would up |*cal to the President for troop* to force our |ieople to employ a man who was voting them into irredeema ble min. Bobby you should lie more consistent. If you advise negroes to stop feeding one of their ra«-e because he is a Democrat, you should a«cord to the white Democrats the privilege J of refusing them credit and employ ment lw*ause they arc KadicaU. You must not take all the chii ken pie to yourself. llohhy was mistaken in his man for oner, lie had run across the w rong individual, lie had poke* I up a colonel man who had ai cumulated a little property for himself, and was able to employ about twenty hands; and who saw that if the Kadieal par t\ continued in |s>wer much longer his property would l*e wasted in the enormous taxes that they were heap ing upon our oppressed people, and had determined to vote |or the |»urty that promised to administer the af fairs o| government in an honest and n n mini real manner.

Tat Copiah Herald takes advant age of an error that occurred in our l*per last week, and asks if Cut.

We will hare Col.

The flirat ticket, however, that waa nominated, had O. H. Ihiugluan, col ored. for the la'gialature, defeating t'a|»!.J. A. liiNtkiiiM.

Finally, in order to get another whaek mI the enndniate for the l**g i’•lullin’ all the nominees agreou to resign. Home of them however, were very reluctant to do so. The second nominations resulted as above stated. Maj. Mill*a|»* was not present nnd it was thought l*y a great many that he would not accept. If he doe* not the Kxecative Committee,we wen* told, would have the right to supply the vacancy, and in that event,they will place Capt. Iloslun* on the ticket for the Legislature. From what we could learn the color ed people w eh* not at all satisfied. Saying the “offh-es arc for the white men, the vote* for the nigger*.”— Such is the raaa in almost every I county ; the white l(c<|ul»licait* want | the offices leaving the colored |«eople | to do the voting for their share of ■ the honors. iAttte H*»a*w «n4 Ala Mr«4A«Mr *j»e rr A Little Cik k Sparrow Catching, made a s|ie«-ch in the nuighliorhood 1 of Joe. i'rtcv’s, at Itedbone, on last Saturday, in which he appealed to the prejudices ot the negroes, and n n»itided them ot the lash that was raised ovur them at the time thuy were slaves. .\t this juncture, a gentleman asked him if lie had j ever whipjird a negro? floldty said that he had, and tliat when ho did, he thirty linted him—and made mo tion* w ith hiu hand, indicating the manlier in which lie done it.— , Hut Bobby is liable to forget what be wyi As he went on with his 1 liablerlnsh, lie commenced miking ' iilioiit his honesty, etc. lie stated Bthat lie had never defrauded a man i out of a cent in his life—(he prolm My forgotton his attempt to flood 1 the ronutry with ronnterfeit money, j If In* never defrauded a man out of a cent it was not his faulty lie fur tlier said that he had never told a lie, and had never struck a negro in Ins life. The little Lilliputian evi dently must l*e very defleieut in his upper story, for only a few moments before be made the state ment that lie had wli!p|M*d a negro, and lieanlcs ha t laid it on pretty heavy—or in other word*, he “tinted him!” Hobby must surely lie very absent minded, that lie tauuot re mernlwr from one moment to anoth er what he say a. Ileadviaed the negroes not to be lieve what Joe. Price should say to them; and further adviacd them not to go to Democratic meeting*, and not to believe what Democrat* should say to them. Hobby, it seenta that yon and the balance of your foilower* are somewhat afraid to let negroe* hear the truth, and wish to keep them away from all Democratic meeting*. Thi* has been the style of your party ever since its incep tion. You are afraid far the truth I to be told to them. For when the negroe* And out the kind of men they are following, they will drop them like “hot potatoes,” and you will be consigned to eternal oblivion. He advised the negroes, if they went to I>cm»crutic meetings, to go with both ear* unstoppe d, so that what was told them would go into one ear and out of the other. We are glad that Hobby told them to keep both ear* unstopped, for when they hear the truth, it will be the means of changing a great many from the course they are now panning. Bobby’* effort* was a very lame one, and was only jast such as his small mind is capable of pro ducing.
