They aro coming to light all tho
abominations of the present oongroia.
Tho different department1 at Washing
ton aro crowded by "fast women," cm
ployed nominally .as clerks, but who aro
nothing moro or less than concubines or
whores to tho members of Congress.
And ho tho tax-burdened peoplo of this
country pay these congressmen not only
their $5,000 salary, but on additional
sum, ranging from SS00 to $1,200 to cov
er the expenses of their kopt women 1
Washington is Sodomizodi Why i
thoflro withhold?
This abominable state of things Is all
attributable to tho radical aacundancy In
congress of tho lost eight year. Noth
ing llko It was over heard of boforo, In
tho whole history of the government.
These radicals have had, and now have,
more than two-thirds of both branches
of congress. They mako all laws, im
pose the taxes, and voto away .tho mon
ey. And now wo aro told, too, that this
corrupt body ought to bo authorized, by
u constitutional amendment, to mako
laws hereafter to force negro suffrage and
negro ofllceholding upon States whose
peoplo have again and again protested
ugalnst tho outrage. Senator Sprague,
of Ilhodo Island, an independent repub
lican, declared a" few luyn slnco, In tho
Menato chamber, that tho "rioclal condi
tion of this country U quite as bad as tho
financial condition. Ho said ho "knew
Homothlng of the character of tho people
of other countries, and he llrmly believed
that thero is less vlrtuo and morality In
American society to-day than in any
other on tho face of tho earth."
Tho radicals cannot forget that Geor
gia cast her vote for Seymour and Itlnlr.
It is a crime for which that State will bo
compelled to do long and humiliating
penance. To commence with, the Stat
must occupy a territorial position like
Virginia, herpeoploaull'erlng tho tyranny
of taxation without representation, and
all other grievances that a relentless and
despotic Coiirfref") may choose to place
upon them.
On the 2oth day of June Inst, Georgia
was admltttul to the Union under her
reconstructed Constitution; her carpet
bairgers wore admitted to seat In Con
gress, drew their pay, and aslited In
the legislation of the country. General
Meade, the military commuuder, surren
dered his authority to the hands of the
scalawag usurpers of tho Stato govern
ment, and the Krecdman's bureau bent
its energies to tho work of carrying the
Stato for Grant and Colfax. Georgia as
a reconstructed Stnte was, in truth, pro
nounced "a hucccm," and radical specu
lators on the result of tho pending pres
idential contest put down her electoral
voto as certain for the radical candi
dates. Hut tho people triumphed, voted
for Seymour and Blair, and thus defying
the will of tho radical majority did what
radicalism finds it impossiblo to excuse.
For voting Its sentiments tho Stato
must bo remanded into vassalage, to do
penanco at radical bidding. And
.Meade, having used his army only in
differently well In tho work of intimida
tion, has also been punished by the ap
pointment of Sheridan to the Lieutenant
Genoraloy, a position to which tho for
mor was entitled by every consideration
thatusually controls in mi oh oases.
Whatover pretext tho radical Congress
may urge for its courso toward Georgia
tho truo ono is found lit tho complexion
of tho peoplo's politics. Tho expulsion
of negro members from Leglalatue is
used as a mero "make-bellove," about
which thcradiacalscaru Uttloor nothing.
Georgia's democracy alone unfits her for
radical fellowship; and, tho denial to her
of representation, preserves a sufficient
radical prepondorenco in Cougress to
ovor-rlde tho veto power of tho presi
dent, and to pass, desplto tho president,
any partisan measure tho exlgonoy of
tho times may require.
How much furthor radical aggressions
upon tho liberties of tho peoplo will be
permitted to go, we cannot Hay. Thoro
is a dumb, quiet flubmlssion to their out
rages, woll calculated to cause patriots to
despair; and but for tho lingering hope
that they will be brought to a reokoning
beforotho last vestlijo of a constitutional
government Is wiped out by them, the
peoplo would pray for stability, quiet
and certainty, oven through tho
throes of a revolution and tho establish
mont of an empire. If that end must
pome, let it come quickly, for It can have
no troubles greater than those upon
which we are rapidly drifting.
The president has appointed A. P. K.
Saflbrd, Esq., brothervof our fellow-clti-izen,
A. B. Safford, governor of Arizona
territory. Mr. A. P. K. Safford has lerved
in the California legislature and other
positions of trust, and lias distinguished
himself for an honesty and uprightness
of purpose common to but few of 'our latter-day
office-holders. Up to the out
break of the war ho was a democrat, and
is not now given to all the extremes of
radicalism. His appointment Is a good
Democratic Hnyor.
At tho election held In Davenport,
Iowa, on Saturday, James Itonwick,
democrat, was chosen mayor by a decided
majority. Tills "is an unexpected victory.

Tho Now York 'Herald's' Mexico cor
respondent says that the civil war in tho
stato of Tamaulipas continues to rage
with unabated fury. A party of rebels,
under Vcrgas, defeated Escobedo's troops
ueur Villa Grassa, capturing his equip
age, archives and 527,000 In specie. Tho
same party attacked tho city of Lonares,
but were repulsed with hoavy loss.
Tho latest dispatches say that Escobo
do's policy toward tho rebels is of tho
most bloody and relentless character.
Nothing but extermination satisfies him.
Ho has glvon orders to have shot all for
eigners who are not provided with pass
ports. In pursuance of theso barbarous
orders, two American, citizens on their,
return from Saltlllo to Bio Graudo wero
robbed by the military, then shot and
their bodies hung upon trees. If these
had been negroes, another war with
Mexico would follow.

from the beneficial savings fund Mon

lars of tho 150,000 coupon bonds were 5

The leading democrats of congress con
sistently advocated the repeal of the
Tonuro-of-Oillco act on constitutional
grounds. They have no love for Grant,
and do not caro to shield him from a
broil with congress; but they have a
love for consistency. They opposed tho
law from the start, and when the ques
tion of repeal was raised they could not
stultify their former record or Ignore It,
although by doing so they might have
paralysed the real strength of the radi
cal party. All honor to them for their
devotion to the right.
What does that plank in the radical
Chicago platform mean that declares
that the matter of suffrage la the loyal
States bolongs to the people thereof? If
It means what it says bow does the radi
cal party reconcile It with the effort upon
the part of congress, to press the adoption
of the ftrteenth constitutional amend
ment, before the people have a chance to
express themselves upon It? Radicalism
feeds upou inconsistencies, outrages upon
popular rights aud publlo plunder.
Radical office beggars are holding out

Speech of Xr. Ttavllllek la bclirtlTor tbo
Great Latter form MoTciuont.
The announcement that Richard T.
Travilllck, tho distinguished advocate of
the great labor reform movement, would
address tho citizens of Cairo at tho court
houso last night, drow out a very respect
able audience. Mr. J. Y. Turner was
called to the chair and M. B. Harrell was
chosen secretary, whon Mr. Travilllck
was Introduced to tho audience. He pre
sents every evidenco of being what ho
professes to bo: a laboring man, strong,
hardy, well developed, and vigorous in
both mind and body. Hooccupled about
an hour and a half in tho delivery of his
ppeech, receiving the while, the closest
attention of his hearers.
As a plea for thecauso he has espoused
wo consider Mr. T.'b effort both uble and
effective. It Is manifestly the result of
study and research, and, In many re
spects is exhaustive. Wo can give noth
ing moro than a mero synopsis of it, and
shall no doubt fall to do tho gentleman
Justice even in that.
He discussed his subject under three
heads Land, Labor and Money. Pro
ceeding with tho first division, ko re
marked that history, tho libraries of tho
worldi failed to inform us of tho tlmo
and process at and by which man becamo
invested with title to tho soil. God gavo
tho earth as a herltago to man, and for
two thousand years it was held by the
peoplo in common. In Palestine,
throughout Syria, Asia and Asia Minor
wells were property as cattle and tene
ments were; but tho lands were held In
common. When William thocouquerer
entered Britain, however, ho dispossessed
tho occupants and gavo the land to his
followers, and from this date forward wo
hear of marketable lands, und of land
lords Tho speaker dwelt at length upon
this point, introducing Ireland, Scotland
and England to illustrate the evils grow
ing out of tho relations of landlord and
tenant. Irishmen were here, not be
cause Erin was not endeared to their
hearts as the homo of their ancestry, as
the land of their own nativity, and by a
thousand sacred associations. They
were here because tHo fow had robbed
them of the soil; becauso tho few pos
sessed the land and the mauy were laud-
less. Scotland is famed for tho grandeur
aud magnificence of her scenery, for the
beautiful waters of her streams, for her
music and her bards; but there the coun
ty of Sutherland stretching from sea to
sea belonged to the Duke of Sutherland,
and half tho entire territory was held
and owned by twelve men. In England
the lords and earls ride hours and days
upon their own domain, and yet as fur
as the eye can scau around them, lie
their own possessions. Tho lords of the
soil fueling insecure, dreading tho en
croachments of the landless, organized
the soldiery, until now every eighth man
In Europe is a soldier. He is not a sol
dier to protect the laboring man, the
man who toils for bis bread, but to pro.
tectthe lords of the soil. The soldiery
had to be paid and parliament laid
a tax upon tho people; thus was the poor
man taxed to pay a soldiery established
to keep them off of their own laud, an
inheritance of which they wero robbed
by tho power of might. Noticing tho
progress of events In America, noticing
the alarming fact that llfty-olght per
cent, of the wealth of tho country was
held by four por cent, of tho population,
tho speaker admonished tho peoplo
that uulcss they arousod themselves to
the emergencies of the times, tho condi
tion of affairs so deplorablo and oppres
sive in Ireland Scotland and England,
would be inaugurated iu tho United
Congress had no right to divest tho
people of a single acre of the public do
malu. It should hold it iu sacred trust
for actual settlers at Congress price; yet
during the past two years it had given
to companies and corporations an area
of lands twice that of England; and alto
gether had robbed the peoplo of 180,000,
000 of acres, a domain greater than that
of the Empire of Frauce; greater than
that or the six New Eugland States,
Now York, Pennsylvania Deleware and
Ohio combined; and that, not halting
here, there are bills pending before that
body for tho appropriation of 220,000,000
Thospeakor illustrated tho vlllianies of
the corporations into wtiicli theso appro
priations fall, referring to tho robbery
of Michigan by the Suez caual company,
a company that had reoelved 750,000
acres of mineral and timber lauds, worth
$200,000,000 for $176,000 dollars worth of
Congress, the speaker declared, has no
right to alienate the publlo lands from
the people. Had the laud of America
been occupied by the peoplo, each man
the owner of such an area as ho oould suc
cessfully ;tlll, our western frontier now
would, be a "living wall and ka hu
mau wood," requiring no soldiery
for its protection, abarrler against
invasion, an army for tho country
In the pursuits of peace. Had
the South been owned by tho people,
each man allotted such a surface as ho
could till, the foot of a slave would never
have marked tho American continent,
and thero would have been no war of
Passing to tho consideration of "mon
ey," the speaker, defined what was
meant by "money" gold and silver
wero not money unless stamped with tho
sanction of tho sovereign government
Wo havo no Bpaco to follow tho gentle
man In his' consideration of this branch
of his subject, so as to give the reader
anything like a definlto idea of Its treat
ment. He declared that Wallstreet dic
tated terms to Congress; and that Wall
street was responsible for tho contraction
of tho currency. Tho contraction had
failed to mako tho dollar worth moro
than it was; but pourod a higher rato of
luterest into the coffers of tho capitalists
Touching revenue taxes ho enlarged upon
tho burdens sustained by tho poor man.
Everything ho wore upon his body, eve
ry article of food, all tho necessaries of
life wero taxed. Matches that cost 25
cents a gross at tho factory, pay a tax of
$1 41; tea pays 85 cents per pound in
gold, and coffee 15 cents; the boots tho
poor man wears aro taxed olovon times;
and to wring theso taxes from his hard
earnings the government employs more
tax-gatherers than Gen. Scott had sol
diers in Mexico. Tho speaker referred
to the prostrution of tho manufacturing
and Industrial interests. In 18G0 the
United States owned 0 per cont. moro
tonnage than Great Britain; now she
has only 40 per cent, of Great Britain's
tonnago. Last year 2,600.000 tons were
tied up or sold. The ship yards aro qulot,
7,003 caulkers aro unemployed, aud in
tho country 2,000,000 of peoplo oro
without labor. Tho resources of tho
country were unchanged; our sollvas as
productive, our mines as rich, aud our.
timber abundant, yet a producing forco
equal to $900,000,000 was Idle. Tills con
dition comes from mismanagement,
from a violation of tho philosophical
laws of government.
Tho publlo dobt Is $2,600,000,000. The
National Labor Unlou uroposes tho pay
ment of this vast sum without Imposing
upon tho peoplo a single dollar of taxa
tion. They will make tho dollar worth
a dollar In payment of all debts, publlo
as woll as private; they will then mako
tho rato of interest correspond with tho
general increase In the wealth of the
country, which Increase is 3J per cent.
They would increase the circulation to
$35porcapltu. This would absorb $1,400,
000,000; or, iu other words, would require
ourprescut circulation of $000,000,000 to
be Increased, by the redemption of bonds,
$800,000,000. The births aud immigra
tion, (each Individual requiring his $35),
would necessitate a further annual uiu
crease of the circulation, equal to four per
cent of tho remaining publlo dobt.
Henco by births and immigration the
entlro national debt would bo wiped out
In tweuty-fivo years, without tho pay
ment of a dollar in the way of taxes, to
that end. The people domand moro
money and cheaper money. Tho busi
ness necessities of tho oountry call for
$35 per capita. We havo but $13. France
has $35 to $37; Great Britain has $33;
but the rate of Interest maintained shows
that no mau has too much money. Ex
pand, then, our circulation. It will regu
late Itself. Pay 3 per cent interest, that
amount is tho geuoral increase of our
wealth. If tho bondholder can make moro
than that ho will cash his bond and em
ploy his money in a way to make more.
If money becomes too plentiful, of which
thero is no danger, und business
falls to yield 3 per cent, monoy
will go back into bonds whoro it will
yield that amount Inaugurate this con
dition of affairs and labor will receive its
reward. Tho poor man's dollar will be
worth a dollar, and tho bulls and bears
will not as now, bo wrlnglngfrom the
sweutund toll of labor his twelve and
fifteen per cent; our commerce will
again whiten every sea with its vessels;
our looms aud anvils aud forges will
again give out the hum of indus
try, and peaco and prosperity will again
crown the wholo land.
Laboring men should bend their ener
gies to this end. They should support
no candidate who does not openly avow
hlmsolflu favor of these principles. They
aro the principles of tho people, and
upon their application to affairs of gov
ernment depends the government's
stability. Mako your grocers talk for
the peoplo or refuse to patronize them;
tako no newspaper that is an enesay of
your causo, and soon the 400,000 mem-j
hers of the Labor union wui aweu to a
million. Down with parties and up
with the people; be true to yourselves,
and the causo you have espoused will
surely triumph, and the Labor Union
will be the ruling power of the land
No Southern State will be recognized
as au equal partner iu this "blessed"
Union of ours until it is thoroughly rail
ldallzed and eleots a governor and legis
lature pledged to all the sohemes of rad
icalism. This is the inflexible determi
nation of our "glorious'' congress, and if
