itll, if persisted in, produce a ioutliet
't ranees, whiea must renlt in the'deso
lation of thae ountryi and the serious, if
ltot Irreparable, injury of both races: in
thae Sathern .States.
•That through the stringent interpre
tilo of the disfranchilsingelause of the
netion Acts, so large a number
ohe hite citizens have been excluded
from :registration that the white voters
are redaced to nearly. oeb-half, the ranm
ber of colored, though the census exhib
its an excess of white population,
That vast frauds and irrgularitie
have been committed in the reg stratiod,
whioehare sufficiently indicated by the
registration of one voter for every three
of the negro race.-against one for every
ten of the white population. That in
consequence of these frauds and irregu
larities in the administration of the Re
construction Acts, the. white population
are powerloss-subject to the domiuation
of the negro race, which, through the
influence of indiscreet persons, has been
incited to bitter hostility and jealousy
towards the white citizens of the State,
whose interests require them to munm
tain relations of kindness and good will
to all elasses and conditions of persons
residing in their midst.
That sountd, policy, no less than hu
inanity, demands the exercise of the
kindest feelings and the most liberal
disposition of the white to the colored
people; and, that nothing is further from
the purpose or desire of our people than
the adoption of laws or measures to op
press the freedmen, or to deprive them
of the benefit of just and equal laws for
the protection of their persons, their
property, and their liberty.
That so far from displaying any con
tumaacy or falctious opposition to the
recoustruction acts of Congress, the
white citizensof this State have gener
ally endeavored to register, but have
been refused, as your memorlalists be
lieve, in much greater numbers than
was contemplated by Congress.
That the negroes in this State are or
ganized into secret bands termed loyli
Leagues sworn and combined against]
the white citizens of the State in order
to obtain control of the govcernlmenlt;
That this credulous race has beenl de
luded by degigning men into the be'ief
thalt the property of the white citizens
will be divided Amongast them;
That under thesell de:nloralizing influ
(cices, they are daity refusing to fulfill
their contracts or to labor lor tihe sup
port of themselves and their families;
That in conseqlaence of this demlloriali
zntion, planting in this State has result
ed in the ruinous ftilure of a large miajor
ity of our pl;anter, andtl, of course, in
the necessity of its abandonment;
That before the close of the piresent
year the negroes, with but few excel)
tions, will have colasutned or wasted all
their wages, or share of the crops, !ilndl
be destitute of tihe mloans of subsistence;
that thlie white race will be c)mpelled to
liimit their planting in:ainly to their own
families, and the lnelrn.es will not have
the meanls, if they had the capacity., to
plant on their own account. Under
these circunanstalees, famine, willh all jit
atatlndanmt horrors, must soon come upion
this iinprovicldent race.
In view of these impending calamities,
the undersigned would earnestly suppeitll
to the Presient and Congress to give

such remledy as in their wisdulhlm can be
devised to arrest the ruin which, unlless

KIssMa BY IBULE.-A youhg lady i
writer, , whom practice has doubtless 1
made perfect, lays down the following
rule for kissing, which we are willing to I
adopt-on a fair opportunity-merely to
test the efficacy of her sweet rule:
Therec is as much difference in kisses f
as in individuals, and I am sure I woerd a
not like to be kissed by every one. No,
indeed; for some would give such an a
overwhelming smack it would almost I
aeafeu me. Now kissing can be reduced
to rules, one or two of which I will give.
The head should always be turneds slight- t
ly to the right, as such motions give.
grace, and prevent the concussioni cG the
olfactory organs. The lips aihouldt then
be pressed closely and sweetly together
as you. sip the nectar of the long kiss,
but no smack should be hiearsd. I speakl
particularly ion this subject, because I 1
consider kissing a part of our nature,
and because few people appear to nunder- 1
standtl the value of a kiss, and the usaIa
ncr in which said salutation with the 1
lips should be rendered.

by a correspondent of the New Orleaos
Picayune, sketiihed from observations of
her dAring a ride in the ears. will be
read with, iteresot by her many admirers
and friends :
"1She was habited plainly-but neatly,
in a blue mruslini dress, which fitted her
aduii'ithly and which I was told was
cut out and made by hmerself. A fash
ionable hat, triummed with blue, suited
the dress. Two veils, one black and the
other blue, entirely concealed her fet
tures, which vexed we. because I was
curious to ascertain whether the features
they hid .ecrrespouled with the faultless
form of tl:oe lady. She was of medium
size, small w.aisted, with a well develop.
ed bust, a neck very fair and a perfect
model for a sculptor. ITer feet nud
iands were those of a. Southern lady.
very small and tidy. She looked as if
slhe would weigh about 115 pounds, anill
to the eyes of an artist resembled
Power's 'Greek Slave more thttu the
Veitnus de Medicis, or the Venus of
Canova. Afterwarils I 'had the pleas
are of seeing lher face to facee, aid was
surprised to find her a blonde, with light
hellsnut hair, soft exlremseive, but bril
lilnt hazel eyes, Grecian featuires, with
a nose slightly aquiline, fiorehead a little
higher and broader thall Pl'syches', eher
ry red lips, well curved with Cutpid's
lhows, iand slightly llptiurlned at the c,.r
lers, iudicating a smothered pro pensity
for lfun. 11er cheekli were ineantifally
tinted with the uitaiden blhitsl of he:alth
and innocence, I was told that she is
thirty years old; but how younig site
looked I I decideald that her age could
not, be Inore thau 21. I was anmused at
her blue dress, but there was niothinig of
the "blue stocking" about her. Lhe
were the blue veil to relieve a. temporary
iutl:inmmation of the eye lids, caused by
too much rcadmig and writing at aight,
or other imlprludence. I was told by an
icquaintance that the itfectiou as no;

that her hands are small a(nd tidy, but
they are not dimpled. There ne.ver was
a paitnter, poet. mlimsicnau, or any itige
