Friday Morniag, November 11,1870.
FOR CONGRESS—2d District,
HON. NELSON TIFT,
The State Debt
The Atlanta Constitution, in answer to
our enquiry as to the amount of the
State debt, says:
We will try to give a hint of it No
knows how macli of the State’s pa
per is out
Treasurer Angier reported the debt $6,-
014,000. Of this $53,000 about has been
paid. Hut $600,000 of bonds issued in
i 808 and declared illegal by Governor
Bullock, have been used by him, making
Add to this $1,250,000 issued tempora
rily by Governor Bullock of currency
1>onds, $100,000 of gold bonds to Mr.
James, $250,000 to Mr. Kimball, and $1,-
006,000 of gold bonds issued since the
million and a quarter were started out,
and we have some $9,267,500.
Now stick on to this small amount over
$5,000,000 already endorsed for railroads,
and we have Foubtzex and a quartet,
millions of State debt The credit of
the State is pledged to the amount of near
fifty millions more of money for railroads.
From this showing it in evident the
State will soon become Bankrupt. Such
financial profligacy, as has been indulged
in, by the present State administration, is,
probably, without parallel, outside the
Southern States, and, if persisted in, will,
beyond all doubt, lead to repudiation.
Since the inauguration of the present
Governor, a little more than two years
ago, the State debt lias been approximat
ing^ increased four million* cf dollars!
The figures are calculated to stagger the
strongest. And in this increase we leave
out the $5,000,000 “ already endorsed for
railroads, ” upon the charitable presump
tion that the State will not have theso
Bouds to pay. Though we are satisfied if
the State endorses for many of the Roads
that nro proposal, sho will have to foot
Now, if this wasteful extravagance is
jiersisted in, what is the remedy ? What
can the people do to protect themselves ?
Can they do aught else than repudiate ?
We think not. It is truo many will say
our advocacy of repudiation is ill-timed
and calculated to destroy the credit of the
State. That is why] we think it should
bo advocated. Wo don’t wish the State
to have a credit to subserve the private
ends and aims of unprincipled politicians
and spendthrifts, and if advocating the
doctrine of repudiation will have the ef
fect of stopping them we shall not hesi
tate to do so, and, if this will not accom
plish it, wo shall not hesitate to go far
Wo desire to be understood, however.
Far be it from us to advocate,
countenance, the repudiation of an hon
est debt, or one contracted for an honest
purpose. But wo know, and the people
of the State know, that the present State
Government is entirely too lavish with
money and too careless in its expenditures.
When a hundred or two thousand dollars
are wanted, twelve hundred and fifty
thousand dollars of Bonds are hypothe
cated for it Does not ;such recklessness
as that demand a check at the hands of
the people ? Is if not right for the peo-
plo to plainly inform the State Govern
ment that if such conduct is persisted
they will repudiate ? Is there anything
wrong in this ? Is it right that we should
supinely sit down,and permit every (pass
ing cormorant to fill himself upon our
substance ? It may be, but wo can’t see
it, and wc take this occasion to notify
those in power that unless more economy
is practiced, we shall, at the proper time,
advocate repudiation, though it be never

cals in that county.—Bainbridgc Argus.
Yes, and we fear the success of the Rad
icals will be superinduced in counties
other than Mitchell by the same cause.
There seems to be a mania, among oi
people for office. Without consulting the
interests of the party or cause, without
caring, seemingly, of any bod result, men
rush forward, in advance of all action by
the party, and declare themselves candi
dates for office and vigorously commence
working for self. They never look higher
or beyond self, and if a man will only
promise to vote for them it is well and
Now, this is all wrong—is calculated to
insure the success of the Radicals in many
counties where their success is exceeding

We are opposed to men being nominated

ed for certain offices the people will run
It is a time now, of all others, when
there should be unitv of action, concert
of purpose, and surely, at such a time,
is not asking too much of chronic office-
seekers and holders to request that they
defer their desires until the people can
heard from. The present contest, and
particularly in this county, is going to be
a hard and close one, and we must have
but one set of candidates in the field.-
More than this will defeat us, beyond
penulventure; and we appeal to those
who have announced themselves as can
didates to abide the action of the party.
Don’t defeat yourselves as well as the par
ty. A fair nomination, by ballot, can
had, and if there are others who
popular, yield to them. As matters now
stand, with the number of candidates we
have for some offices, the Radicals can
beat the race witboqt an effort Then,
again, we ask that yon do not hazard the
interest of the cause and rights of the

To-day elections are to be held in Mary
land, Illinois, Massachusetts, Miohigan,
New York, Wisconsin and some other
States, the result of which will determine
whether the people of the North are go
ing .to "on with the revolution,” or
whether they are going to make an effort
return to principles that prevailed in
the better days of the Republic.
But in this election New York especial-
going to experience some of the
trials we have hod. As before stated the
war, against States’ rights and sovereign-
commenced here in the Sooth, is to
finished there—"the war is to be car
ried into Africa. ” That is right. We
want to see what those war Democrats
will do : we want to see what those peace
Democrats will do : we want to see what
the people will do. We desire to know if
they will back their promises with action
—with blows, if necessary, or tamely sub
mit, and, like a cowardly boy, say : " you
better not do that again. ’’
Tho Democratic press of New York
city is very much exercised and outraged,
but still advised submission and obedience
the laws. Whether the people will
follow this advice or not wiU be known
to-day. We predict they will, although
they have a bitter pill to swallow, and,
that our readers may see and, to keep up
the history of the limes, we extract from
the Sun the subjoined record of the Dep
uty Marshals and Supervisors of election
William Irving, Marshal of the Eighth
Ward, has been a bar-tender for Theo
dore Allen, and served a term of ten years
WiU the War ContinueT
We find the following paragraph going
the rounds of the press:
" It is estimated that the Germans have
taken, up to the present day, 320,000
French prisoners. **
Whether this paragraph was penned be
fore the capitulation of Metz or not we
do not know, but presume, from the fig
ures, that it was after the surrender.
A cable dispatch, of a few days since,
also tells us that Gambetta is unable to
furnish arms to troops and that the French
people must take care of themselves and
do the best they can. This, we take it,
is the real and true meaning of the dis
From these two facts we feel that the
war cannot be protracted. If we take
320.000 men, as prisoners of war, from
the French army and add to this number,
iy, 70,000 who have been taken from the
ranks by death, disease and wounds, we
find the fighting force of France has been
reduced -100,000 men. These figures we
have mode small in order that our calcu
lation may be a safe one.
France luts a population of 36,000,000
and of this number, without having any
statistics at command, we suppose
and a quarter million to be eligible
soldiers. If this be correct France
has, after deducting the 400,000, about
850.000 troops. Of this number take 150,-
000 for the Navy, 100,000 for the sick,
teamsters, hospital corps Ac., and we find
600.000 soldiers left Scatter these about,
at the necessary points, and we find
France has bat a small army with which
to do battle at anyone point Add to
this the unsettled condition of affairs
there, the uncertainty of their present
Government the fickleness of French
men, and you have but a poor chance for
the success of the French cause.
We anticipate whenever the Prussians
attack Paris in earnest they will capture
it, and with the fall of Paris the war ends,
even admitting the present armistice does
not terminate it France is not nor was
she, in a condition to cope with Prussia.
The war is now virtually over and France
coming ont of it without any laurels.
Nothing can hurt her now.
It would not surprise us to see the Em
pire of France re-established with Napo
leon III as Emperor. There are good
reasons upon which to ground this belief.
We hope it may thus end, for a Republic
will not suit the Frenchman.
A Good One.
Ex-Attorney-General Hoar has gone to
making stump speeches in Massachusetts,
this he is doing like Banks did da
ring the war—he is furnishing supplies to
tho other side. Last week he made a
speech at Roxbury in which he said : "If
once you let the Democratic party get in,
it will never be got out again without a
civil war.** John Quincy Adams couldn’t
resist this chance and so "touched up

The Cost of Bullock's Legislature.
We extract from the Atlanta Constitu
tion of Saturday some facts and figures
that will make tho tax payers of this af
flicted State opon their eyes. It shows
what the Legislature has coat them from
its first session in 1868 down to the day
October when Bullock drove it from
9 in session three hundred and
twenty-eight (328) days. Tho longest
sessions of past Legislative Assemblies
have not aggregated over eighty-seven
(87) days, if we remember rightly.
In 1868 this political creature of his
Excellency waa in ninety-five days; in
1870 it held three sessions respectively of
seventeen, thirty-nine and one hundred
and twelve days.

pay and mileago over kike hundbed anj>

Wo shall also show hereafter how much
of this three hundred and twenty-eight

absolute idleness; how many days w—

that the judge was a prophet that time.—
I believe myself that if once the people
felt the blearing of a real Democratic rule
they never would willingly submit to any
other; that if the old men of the sea who
ride and choke them were dismounted,
they would never again submit their
necks to such usage without a fight And
I am more inclined to agree with the
judge, from the fact that I have observed
that even to keep the people from throw
ing them as it is, it has been necessary to
keep a goad many soldiers in ten States
of the Union. That in North Carolina
not even troops sufficed. That Philadel-
8 hia required companies of soldiers at
le polls to keep her ‘loval, ’ and New
York is so restive under Radicalism
require every available bayonet to pacify
her to the yoke. Yes, my friends, the
judge is right; the monopolist will have
to subdue us by arms before the people
will let them up. ”
Tlie Election in December Can
not be Defeated by Bollock.
The Atlanta Constitution calls attention
to the following section of the Code of
Georgia, which, being unrepealed by tho
Akerman election law, sextos the cer
tainty of an election beyond all contro
versy and under any possible contingen
If by ten o’clock a. m., on the day of
tho election, there is no proper officer
poesent to hold the election, or there is one
and lie refuses, three freeholders mat
superintend the ELECTION, and shall ad
minister the oath required to each other,
which shall be of the same effect as if
taken by a qualified officer." See. 1314,
Chapter 2, Title 14, Pt. 1,1, Code of
Goorgia, page 253.
The election under this section,
marks the Constitution, is certain, wheth
er Governor Bullock and the Ordinaries
fail to appoint election managers, o:
Senate refuse to confirm them, or
managers neglect to dischargo their du
ties. The election can still go on under
the Code. Tho object of the section
above was to prc\ide for just such risks,
and prevent the people from being de
prived of an election at tho proper time.
Tho Akerman law changes the ‘‘proper
officers” for holding tho election, but
leaves in force the statute providing for
an election if thero are no proper officers
If, therefore, at the election precincts
stated in the Akerman law, there appear
no managers by ten o’clock, let three
freeholders proceed to hold the election.
Let us bo prepared for every contin
gency, and lose nothing by default.
ONE WORD TO THE VOTERS OF
Ik is very generally known that I am no
aspirant for office: I want no office
within the gift of the people. Therefore,
my motive in calling a convention en
masse, of the people of Webster, to nomi
nate candidates could not have been a
selfish one. When I called the meeting
I did not anticipate a dissenting voice,
but I was mistaken, as shown by the
communication of "Democrat.” The
writer of this communication conceals
himself, but I’ll venture he is on aspirant.
If he is not I call upon him, or them, to
come out over their own proper signa
My object in calling a convention of
the people was to prevent manipulation,
and to allow the people to speak, and to
have bnt a singlo ticket run. A conven
tion composed of delegates never gives
satisfaction—they are generally con
trolled by a few men,nand those few
nominate their feiends. Nominations en
masse, which are being generally adopted,
free from these objections—the mar
that best suits the people will receive the
nomination—the choice of the people
will be consulted—and the manipulation
of wire pulling politicians yields to the
honest preference of the people. Had
Democrat” been an office seeker,
and been fearful of his chances for nomi
nation by the people, he would not have
opposed the proposed plan, and I hope
the people will not thus permit their
reports and preferences to be cast aside
and disregarded. The people want good
men for office and they have the right to
say who shall run, and I therefore, repeat
my call for an assembling of the people
en masse on the 17th inst for the purpose
of nominating candidates by ballot. Let
all come irrespective of color, and let us
have bnt a single ticket
"Democrat” has ‘‘fixed his tricks” to
get a nomination from the delegates, and
does not want a nomination en masse.
He knows his chances before the people
are bad, without tho pledge of the party
to support him. I repeat the call in my
first letter. SAMPSON BELL.
