Mankind to-day and the gener ations that are to tollow ours will accept the abolition of slavery as a legitimate evolution of a Chris tian civilization which is simply recorded in theThirteenth Amend mwent of the Federal Constitution. But the Fourteenth and Fifteenth. Amendments, in so far as they have imposed negro suffrage upon the country, have been, and still are, a curse to the South for Vhieh they were intended as a scourge, and also to the negro -rce, which they pretended to Sbless. These amendments originated in a purpose to humiliate and punish, with a punishment more bitter than death, the people of 'the States that had been in re bellion;" what more honest sup pert they had, was based upon an utter ignorance of the character of the negro and his capabilities for moral and mental develop went,. . Can laws, thus founed in the ddrkest ignorance of the social t elements which they are to .affect, I nd in-a savage and inexorable[ purpose of the conqueror to wreak ruin and vengeance upon his de- I feated foes, ever prove a blessing E to any country? Can such laws, t in the end, when the passions of j civil strife have burned to ashes t and cinders, when civil order has i succeeded to revolution and blood, I ted. and trade and industry are strug gling in a forward march, prove i other than what we have denounc- a ed them to be, a curse, to all eon- . cerned-to those who enacted t thlem as well as to those they were S itvented t scourge?' a Enlightened and ChCristian statesmanahip peinands that the e Sfourte th and 1Ifteebth Amend- " moont sham be abrogated. All t that I(s vluable In the form er mad I-f we concede that all that is in it, 0 A. other than what bears upon Satf. frage, s just, may be preserved in e - a noedraft of the amendment. C The ifteenth tIs a blot upon the e statresanship of the North,. a li reproach to'the magnanimity of e the country; a living threat to the ip civisabtion of the South, and- the b cause of constantly recurringrace confltet, in which the deluded and ti ignorant negroas, always has been, pi and alwaysowill be' the victim,l S/though always the aggaession; and c the best interest ot both races if require that it shall beblottedout bi he tlie Constitution.

In other words, when the North shall become infused enth. with the spirit that inspired General Sherman's Torch and they Dagger article, and shall be pre apon pared once more to shed the blood sor of her seons, to exhaust her ti eahury and spread wretchedness and woe throughout her own as well as our egro borders, for the purpose of exter minating a white Christian civili zation ind setting up a Haytian section of the country, and shall and have subceeded, then we say, the nore States and counties and parishes le of in the South, that hayvethe largest a re- negro majorities, will sease to be sup- clubs in the hands of the Democra a an cy of the South to. strike down Loter those who seek to hurl Southern ities civilization under black heels. "lop Ha!" Exclaim the Inter-Ocean, i the Commercial Gazette, the New the York Tribune, in chorus with icial other Republican journals and rect, leaders, "then you intend to carry able the electiois in such States and reak districts by intimidation and de- violence."' Well suppose for the t sing sake of the argument we grant aws, that we do; then what do those i of journals and leaders think of the ihes fitness of a race for participating has in American politics which, num. nod, bering from three, and ten, to one rug. of the opposing race, throws up rove its hands, abdicates its powers Inc- and surrenders its rights to at eon- paltry minority? Or again, to put ited the question in another way: b rere Whatdo these Republican journals and leaders, who charge that the man Democrats are carrying these the electtons by intimidation and md- violence, think of a political ayes All team, created by'their party, which nid -forces their t white feleow-citizens p of the South to violate the laws, d in., as the only means, as the only I In earthly hope, of maintaining a mt. Christian civilization, aye as the i the only means of preventing organ. a ized soceety from being overwhelm of ed and disintegrated by a flood of the ignorance, superstition and semi the barbarism? ace We only throw out these ques- v iid tions to our Republican contem. a yen, poraries and the leaders of that 'd im, party, as suggestions. It doesnot b ad concern us mucoh, what answers, f Pes if any, they may make thereto; >ut but we know.perfectly well what, situated as their white. fellow. p1 a citizens are in many localities, in B *as the South they would do.
