How to scratch a presidential ticket ci
is the filost depressing puzzle that the c
reform Republicans have attempted. tl
A young man bonsted that hIe hadt a
well-stored mind, whereupon a young
lady' uitti:mured: 'What a pity we c
can't find out where he stored it!'
General Bob Toombs says that "if t
Governor' Coliuitt, of Georgia, was t
put into a room by himself to counit i
$10,000, lie would lose $2000J of it I
before he got through." I
The Chicago platform, says the
Shreveport Standitrd, sets up the usual
claim of Republican credit for bcnefi
cial rains and good crops, but says 1
nothing about the cyclones. t
The number of one-ariued young
men seen driving out with young t
ladies these summer evenings is truly A
appalling. An old soldier at our el- e
bow says that one anrm is invariably
lost during an engagement. (
And now what is to be thought of
thePlaquemine Sou'th? It s~ys: South- t
ern negroes brought better prices in
Chicago last Sunday-notwithstand- i
ing it was a sort of dies non-than t
they ever did before the war.
Her mother said the little creature
lived bn love, but one mouth after
marriage, when the grocery bill came
in, hesaw that hie had made the
greatest oversight of his life by not
ascertaining, what that particular love
On Saturday the Kellogg case w as
laid aside, probably for good. No1
benefit lhas resulted from the discus
sion of it. Mr. Kellogg is an admitted e
interloper and nuisance, but, says the I
Philadelphia Record, it costs more to
abate him than to tolerate him. t
A Denver clergyman, on receipt of t
the usual half-fare pass, wrote to the 1
superintendent: "Can not you em- i
brace my wife also?" To whichl tihe
railroad man said he did not know,
but hie would like to see thle clergy- (
man's wife first, as hie wasn't willing r
to hug every woman that came along.
Somehow the ladies don't seem to
grasp the leap year idea as they c
should. They ought to fly around1
and spend their time and Imoiiey on
the boys, who have to do that thling
three years bn a stretch. Leap year
was designed expressly to give the
boys a financial rest, as it were, and
they need it, too. i
MIau has science, woman has taste. Ir
Man is sttong, woman is beautiful.
Man shines abroad, woman at home. I I
Man prevents misery, woman relieves v
it. Man has a rugged heart, woman a
soft one. Man las njudgment, woman I t
has sensibility. Man is great in ac- (
tion, woman in suffering. Man is a
being of justice, woman an angel of h
mercy. Man talks to convince, wo- o
man to persuade and please. Man is
daring and confident, woman is difi- o

Government of the American lgdb- tl
lie. "It cannot but be wrong," he o
I says, "that men who have no proper- tl

Shere only to make money with the in
tention of going elsewhere to spend n
it, men who are strangers in dar o
o midst, shoald elect ourrulers and law' ii
. Will Civis tell us from whence have t,
'F come the fifty millions of people, who ti
to-day inhabit magnificent cities and tl
towns,linked to one another by bades n
of steel, spread from ocean to ocean, 'I
where a hundred years ago roamed o
but the Red Map in the virgin forests ti
and jungles of North Americat
- He says further, "thus we see that n
li the scum of.Europe, the paupers, the a
beggars, thb criminals, 'ndventurers t
of every description, as soon as they 0
k become naturalized citizens of Amer
1 ica are allowed by our laws to dictate a
' to us who shall be our rulers and who it
C shall make our laws." a
lHas "Civis" forgotten that the bulk
, of the emigrants who originally set
tied the colonies, were composed
of the very element that he is pleased
is to call "the scum of Europe;" and
't that the mother of States and states
k men, Virginia, with her proud F. F.
l V's grew from the very seeds which *
he now holds in contempt. And the
story of Virginia is the story of every
,t other State. Look at the far West,
Ii into who whose bosom is pouring the '
,r stream of those adventurers! Where
the tents of the miner's camp were
seen yesterday, to-morrow, as if by
magic, will arise the beautiful
st city of gorgeous structures and (
1e edifices--an oasis of civilization in I
the once arid desert!
TIAT is the work of UNIVERSAL(
g SUFFRAG(;E ! In the hamlet, in the i
crowded centres of old Europe, where I
education and wealth cling to the old
idea that the sceptre of government I
if belongs to them can be heard the (
Is tramp of numberless and constantly
at increasing battalions of armed men. i
it Why, in God's name, are these mil
lions of soldiers taken from the fields <
and the workshops? Is it not to pre- I
eI serve in the hands of the few the con- i
al trol of tile many ?
Through the forest of gleaming a
ys bayonets and sabres the masses of I
the Caucasian race from whence the 1
, American people have sprung, hear
,g that the Land of Liberty is here,
ly where the son of the Plebean is the
1- I equal of the son of the Patrician. Here
ly in the United States the strong arm
of industry wians the respect of fellow
men and leads oftimes to wealth and I
of station. Here, they have been told
Sthat a Tennessee tailor boy educated
in hiimselfand rose from station to station
l in life till he became the Chief Mlagis- I
n trate of the Nation.
CGris would destroy this. Ho who
holds the dolitrs, would be the Patri
e cian and rule the land. Wealth and
SI education can take care of themselves.
eWhat protection will you give to the
ot masses against the arrogance of the
most fortumitpclasses, if you rob the
Sother of the b~iot 1
Al! well do we remember 18til. It I
Swas then held to be rthe duty of crer 1
o I man to march to the front of battle, 1
-. even those "who have no property or
d Ieducation." Was it to establish and
e perpetuate a favored class in this
to country? The poor conscript was lit
tIe short of a crimlnal, while hle was
being dragged away from his moun
of tain or valley home, from his wlfeand
to his little ones, to defend the property
,- and the institutions of the educated
ae of the South.
V, IHis blood belonged to the State that
"- I Ciris would have deprive him of the
ag right to r;:ise a voice in governing.
81 We believe that all men are born
free and equal, in this that the imbe
cile or the corrupt sonsof the wealthy
and educated are nobetter than those
like him who spring from the humbler I
Sclasses. The good and the virtuous
Sare found as well in the cottage as in I
the mansion. A Democratic govern
ment recognizes these indisputable
facts and accords to every human be
ing the same standing and the same
e. rights before the law.
11. The evils that 1hiversal $ufflrage
e. may bring, are in time cured by Uni
es versal Suffrage itself.
a It is the attempt to stifle its voice
n that carries with it the abuses of which
c- Ciris complains.
a It requires force to maintain in tihe
)f hands of the minority tlhe government
- of the majority. 1
is Was it not by the disfranchisemaent
I- of those who had fought for the stars
and bars, aulby, the ruthless inter-:
ferenee of Federal bayonets in 0our
local affairs, that our people were op- -
pressedobbed. An b t- e

there not a steady improvemen

the current of public sentiment rolling

1- The day is at hand when a govern
d m~nt as perfect as it is in the ,power
Ii of man to create *ill be esthbllshldd
ir' in this country.
Let wealth and education, combine
e to furnish schools and workshops to
o the children of the poorer classes, so
1 that the majority may be rendered
Is more intelligent and industrious.
i, That is by far a better, more righte
d ous, and more enlightened a remedy
s than to deprive them of the ballot.
Let us labor to maintain the supre
mt wacy of Democratic principles, which
1e are based upon those natural rights
that man acquires at the cradle to end
y only at the grave.
r- In despotic Russia, the spirit of the d
; age that demands Universal Sufl'rage, w
o is bringing thousands of men to the in
axe of the executioneer and the frigid
deserts of Siberia.
Will free America attempt to march
back towards a government in the
hands of the few? To do this, is to
d keep open an unceasing conflict be
tween the several classes of society.
It would be unwise, selfish and un
just to create such an order of things.
In fact, it would not be long, before
Sthe masses groaning under the inso
lent rule of the privileged classes
would say with Patrick Henry: "Give
us Liberty or give us Death."
