Voteks of Warren county, you can
low see tho object of the so-called Na

that it is the purpose of iti leaders to
secure office, if possible, by appeals to
tho colored people. They do not seek
the support of the white people, but
cot a day passes that they do not make
long, highly painted appeals to the
colored voters. They well kuow that
their purpose is so transparent that they
cannot possibly gain any support from
Intelligent people, aud they are there
fore engaged in the very same course
that brought so much trouble on thl,
city and county years ago. We ask the
Intelligent of both races, shall these
men be successful ? Will they be al
lowed to array raco against race, Igno
rance against intelligence, poverty
gainst property, morely because they
want official positions ? Wo hope not,
and we bellevo nut, but there is danger
unless every good citizen In the county

Mr. Catcataga aad the 3ew Or
leaaa Times.
In its issue of October 23d, the New
Orleans Times made a most uniustlfla
blo and malignant assault upon the
Hon. T. C. Catching, tho Democratic
candidate for Attorney-General of this
Slate. On account of its extreme vul
garity and disgusting coarseness, we
had determined not to notico it, but
inasmuch as it has excited some com
ment, wo have concluded to say a fow
words with reference to it. Tho at
tack of the Times was based upon an
article In the Picayune of (be 22 1 ul'.,
which is as follows :
INC.". Apropos of tho intemperato and un
justifiable assaults made by the Times
ou the people of Mississippi in a supe
rerogatory lauor oi slander, wo may
record tho substance of a statcraeut
made yesterday by Hon. T. C. Catch
Ings, tho only candidate for the Attor-noy-Uencralsbip
of the S'ale, and who
was passing through hereon a canvass
ing tour to Mississippi City, wheo the
writer met him.
Mr. Catcbings premised bis state
ment by a general allusion to the happy
effects produced by the establishment
cf the Government of the peoplo and
the overthrow of Radicalism in high
places. As with the people of Louis
iana under like rule, the great griev
ance of the so-called Republican Ad
ministration was the excess of taxation
aud ibe general embarrassments it pro
duced, botides the heavy obligations
which cacti successive year of intoler
ant extravagance imposed on the
shoulders of the ridden tex-paycrs.
immediately after the abdication of
Ames and (be assumption of Guberna
torial authority by Stone, the expenses
of the Government wore reduced to
less than one-half. For lb"6 the State
tax was reduced to G'j mills ou the
dollar ; this year it was brought down to
five miils.aud Mr. Catcbings thinks tbat
wilhiu two years it will be diminished
to tho nominal sum of two and a half
mills. All the debts contracted under
Radical rule have been faithfully met
as they matured, and, with tho excep
tion of sporadic cases of disorder,
which are just as likely to break out in
Ohio or Massachusetts at anv time, and
in tact do so, the public peace has not
for years becu so well prcservod,or
the arts of public prosperity so favora
bly improved. As the Kemper county
outrage has been so much quoted, and
Gov. Stone held up by Radical papers
like tho New Orleans Times, ou an al
leged and slandorous charge of inac
tivity in tbo matter, Mr. Catcbings
stated that Gov. Stone has done all
which the law warranted him in doiug
and the Graud Jury has found truo
bills against thirty-six residents of tho
county for supposed participation in
tbo murders. Mr. Calchlugs docs uot
attempt to apologize for the latter any
more than tbo Attorney-General of
Massachusetts sbonld be expected to
find an excuse for the atrocities of
Pomeroy, the boy murderer of Boston,
lie showed that Gov. Stone bad done
his duty in the premises, and the next
labor devolved upon the Judiciary.
Mr. Catcbings Is positive tbat no
such organization as described by the
Times exists in Pike county. lie siys
it is evident that some outrages have
been committed, which must be left to
the inevitable determination of tbe
Courts, but he docs not e in this a
fair pretext for a whole-tale denuncia
'ion of a people nine-tenths of whom
were open in their reprobation of tbe
individual acts. Even what has been
committed, be says, has been gross
ly exaggerated, and there is no
more probability of a renewal of tbe
acts than there is any portion of the
entire country. Whatever has been
done was tho offspring of momentary
passiou, lor wtiiob tbe actors alone are
responsible, It is notable (hat both
Kemper and Pike are white counties,
consequently the political cry of negro
persecution cannot bo sustained. Col.
Falconer, the Private Secretary of Gov.
Stone, and now candidate for secretary
of stale, visited rise county and re
ported that what was done was a in li
ter of immediate police aud judicial
Mr. Catchiugs was very emphatic iu
his assertions that the Government ol
Mississipppl was able to take care of
itself without auy dictation from the
Times, and offers tho record of tho Ad
ministration, with the general peace
which has prevailed since the uprootal
of carpet-bagging lawlessness aid spo
liation, In proof of tbe fact.
The mere perusal of the foregoing
article Is Itself a sufficient response to
the dirty slanders of the Times, for
thcro Is not a word in It, which is not
true; and what Mr. Catchiugs stated
meets with our entire approbation, and
(hat of all the people of our State. The
Times says that Mr. Catchlngs relieved
"himself of a quantity of cheap gush,"
and tbat ho came forward "voluntarily
to defend lawlessness and law-breakers."
An examination of Mr. Catch
ing' statement to the Picayune
puts tho Times in the attitude
of a low slaudercr and falsifier,
for there Is not a word in the statement
which sustains the Times in its asser
tions. On tho coutrary, his statement is
but a plain narration of facts, and he
expressly asserted that he did not
apologize for the disorder! which had
occurred in our State. Tbe trnth Is,
tbe wrath of the Times was aroused by
Mr. Catcblng's statement tbat '-the
Government of Mississippi was able to
take care of itself without any dictation
from the Times. We have only to say
that in this statement Mr. Catcbings is
niOft cordially supported by our whole
Tbe Times belongs to that class of
papers wbicb, while pretending to
represent aud advocate the interests of
the South, loses no opportunity to
slander aud defamo her people. We
have given the Times this much of our
attention, not for the purpose of vindi
cating Mr. Catchiugs, for where bo is
known as be is in this State, nothing
tho Times could say cr do could affect
him in tbe least ; but merely, that (hose
of our people who might ha seen the
Times article, without having also
read the statement in the Picayune
might the better understand its malice
aud mendacity.
Political AageU.
Col. Furlong has been greatly abused,
and charged with being a very terrible
fellow. lie is made out to be nearly
aa bad as Mr. Klein, or lb Editor of
the Herald. Some few political an
gels who roost up in tbe garret at
Peine's stable, who claim to be so pure
that they are forced by a terrible moral
power from within to make these
charges, never remember anything that
Col. Furlong ever did for tbe people
of this city and county. The political
angels who roost over Teine's stable
never think to toll the voters tbat Mr.
Furlong was the stand-by of tbe peo
plo of this county in the Senato for
years. They fail to tell tho people that
if the citizens of this cily or county!
wanted any measure put through the
Legislature, that Furlong's aid was al
ways sought. They refuse to speak of
the great service that be did tho whole
Slate iu a time of sore necessity. They
conveniently forget the Metropolitan
Police Bill. Tbey never mention bis
glorious and successful fight on Ames.
They havo a quantity to tell the
negroes about him, but It never oc
curs to them to inform them that
he U one of tho best friends tbo
liberal public school system of this
S'.ots ever had. For all tho valuable
services he has rendered tho people,
these political augels have not a single
good word, aud tbey are bothered to
death to know where be Is, and why he
doesu't come home, so that they may
abu-e him moro effectually. We do.
not know where he is, and we do not
care ; if these angels will hi a little pa
tient, they will be able to find him in

A Warning to Base Ball Catch
ers. On Monday, Judge Mattice, of
Greene county, signed tbo necessary
papers for the admission of Samuel
Llndsey, of Greene couuty, to the
Poughkeepsie Hospital for tbo Insane.
Mr. Llndsey 's iusauily is the result of
an injury received in a game of bate
ball at Oak Hill, early in September.
Layman, of the Lone Stars of Catsklll,
pitched for tho Cairo club on that occa
sion, and Llndsey was catcher. Tbe
striker struck at tbe ball, tipping it
just enough to throw it out
of tho straight course, and tbo bard
ball struck Lindsay ou 'the fere
bead. Ho was iusensible for several
days, but after a fortnight's illness at
tempted to return to work. Last week,
however, symptoms of insanity were
observed, and he began to have violeut
spcll, manifesting a disposition to In
jure or kill somebody, so that it be
came necessary to Keep Uim manacled
and strapped. The physicians think
the concussion aud shock havo caused
au effusion of blood on the brain. Time
aud rest may possibly bring about a
recovery, but thecnauces are not favor
able. Lindsey wa received at the hos
pital on Thursday last. Rondout (N.

Several statements that have recently
appeared in tbe Herald, wonld natu
rally lead tbe public to believe tbat the
arbitrary (so-called) rates exacted by
the transportation companies centering

inability to fill their orders at compet

The late Cardinal Riario Sforzi was
an exceedingly brave and charitable
man. When, In 1851, the cholera was
killing thousands in Naples, aud those
wbo were well were flying tbe city, he
was one of the few wbo remained and
confronted tbe peril. Every day he
went about tbe squalid Neapolitan
purlieus, distributing fresh linen, med
icines, and dietetic comforts among the
wretcnea patients, ana administering
with his own bands the sacraments
wheo hope of earthly salvation there
was none. When his money was ex
hausted, ho sold his jowelry, and then
his plate, till tbat resource also failed
bim, and he applied, in his extremity,
to a millionaire of his own flock. To
bis request for a loan he received a flat
refusal. So he smiled with a certain
bland bitterness, and said. "Well, 1
shall borrow from a Jew." He went to
Rothschild, but tbe Baron had left
Naples. The agent, however, dispatch
ed a courier to his superior's villeggla
tura, and back came an authorization
to let tli" Cardinal have as much as be
liked, a- whatever time he liked, "sans

Aa "Unsttlsfaolory" Report
Loudon, Nov. 1 Tbe Times, In Its city
article has summarlzsd the "Annual
Review of the Cottoa Trade," just Issued,
and sayi u Is fall of evidence that the
trade has bun dull and dragging, and tha
immediate prospect Is far from bright.
During the first three monies ol last Ma
son there waa signs of ooming activity,
but these were ail swept away by the out
break of the war In the East; production
has therefore kept abiad of consumption,
and tbe result has been that alter sndur
log much lots through selling atunrtmun
rativi prices manufacturers were driven
to work on short time daring the third
Suarter of this year. Latterly, through r
notion of stocks which tbis has In
dueed, and beoause of tbe strike at Bol
ton, tbe trade has bean placed
on a Utile better footing, and lull time has
In many Instances been resumed, but bus
Inesi is still far from satisfactory. The re
port furnishes abundant evidence that tbe
state ol trade Is the same almost every
where. Ellison a Co., who compiled tie
Review, have sent qnorles to all seats of
tbe ootton trade la Europe, and almost

This but came up before tbe House on
E wing's motion to reconsider tbe vote of
yesterday recommitting. Tbe vote waa
reconsideied, but no further progress
made tbe morning hour, to which the
consideration of the bill was restricted,
having been used up to voting by yeas
and nays, the opposition having resorted
to taotlcs of delay. There is no possibility,
under the rules of the Ilouse, of having
nnal action oo tbe bill. It can only be
considered with tbe morning hour, and
tae morning hour can alwaya be uaed up
by dilatory motioos. The only alterna
tives are to report tbe bill again, aod have
it referred to the Committee ot the Whole
oo tbe state of tbe Union, which would
sub)cct it to interminable debate and
amendment, or to pass It under a suspen
sion of the rules, and this would require a
majority o f Iwo-th irds.

with tbe understanding that it then ad
journ to Tuesday, and then without busi
ness adjourn to Thursday.
