practice of the present House, by which
the Republicans, by a two-thirds vote,
have been able to suspend the rules and
p; ss measures by tho same voto withont
allowing debate. Mncli vicious legislation
has been thus enacted by tho dictum of
party rule. The military election bill,
which has figured so prominently, was
passed by the House in that way in do
fiance of the protest of tho minority.—
There will at least be no such exhibitions
of indecent legislation iu the next Con
gress. It is claimed here to-day that the
result of the elections will insure a Con
servative organization of the next House,

all honest citizens ; aud wo commend the
subject to the attention of the Legislature
for such penal laws a3 will tend to the
suppression of sncli traffic.
There is much wholesome advice con
tained in the above resolutions, aud wo
shall be more than glad to see the plant-
of this county aud State enter hearti
ly into the movement. Beyond a doubt
i step in the right direction. The
time has corno when the planters must
unite and work together, and protect their
own iuterests. They have'neglected this
too long already, and the quicker they be
gin the more money they will save.
Up to this time tho combination has
only existed among the cotton aud pro
vision speculators. The people—the pro
ducers—have stood silently by and per
mitted these Shy locks to dictate terms.
This is all wrong. All tho profit in
ton, outside the manufacturer, belongs to
the planter and he should have it, aud he
w ill] have it if the proper steps are taken.
Let [organizations be formc-d in every
county, let small crops of cotton and
large crops of corn bo planted, let tho
planter get out of debt and stay out, aud
then the speculator can be managed. Un
til this is done the planters must remain
the power of the speculator. Again
i commend the resolutions.

While tin* table is not based upon offi

iieently well ascertained to justify the be
lief that there will be bnt few changes iu
it. And tho changes will about balance
anyway. Now, if the same gains are
made iu the live States, yet to elect, the
organization of the Honso will bo almost
certain to be lind by tho Conservatives.
This will be a terrible blow—one from
which the Radical party cannot recover.

Again nominated for election to Con

your attention to the importance of the

21st and 22d of December, for a member
of Congress, members of tho Legislature
and county officers.
The present condition- of the countty
i bordering upon irretrievable disaster
The Radical party now' iu power has
violated tho Constitution, subverted the
rights of the States, destroyed the
sacred guarantees of personal lib
erty and the freedom of elections; have
impoverished the people by heavy and
unequal taxation; squandered the public
land and treasure to enrich monopolies
and partisan favorites, and havo estab
lished military despotism over peaceful
communities and States to force them to
tho accomplishment of their selfish, cor
rupt aud tyrannical designs. No honest
citizen can speak or think of the action
and pre.seu condition of our State Govcm-
mentwithout feelings of sorrow and in
dignation for tho past, and apprehension
for tho future.
With nn unscrupulous Executive and
a Legislature organized by a corrupt
“ring,” co-operating with a United
States Military Court, packed with
who were not elected by the people, their
course lias been marked by bad laws,
extravagance, corruption, a disregard of
the Constitution, and of tho rights and
interest of tho people.
Two years more of such rule would
bring ruin and bankruptcy to all the
great interest of the State, and would
destroy tlie hope of socuring constitution
al liberty in the future. Our opponents
are at work day and night iu tho “ Loyal
Leagues” and “Republican Clubs,”
orderingnnd controlling their oath-bound
colored men as their political slaves, send
ing their emissaries over the country to
propagate falsehoods and misrepresenta
tions, and to incite enmity and hatred
between the white and colored people.—
The colored people should be convinced
that their civil and political rights arc
secured to them in tlie same manner, and
to tho sams extent as the rights of the
white people, and that having a common
interest m the welfare and propel ty of
the State, we should work together and
elect good men to office, and secure an
honest an economical administration of
the Government. They need instruction
as to their rights and interests, and they
need protection against the tyranny and
threats of violence from their Radical
drivers. Lot this be a part of our duty.
People of Georgia I let us make an effort
worthy of the great cause for which
contend. Let no personal sacrifice stand
in tho way of our duty to save the State
from the evils which surround us and
threaten our destruction. Every man
should be a missionary; every communi
ty should be a unit. There should be no
division upon candidates, or otherwise.
A single vote may determine our fate.—
Let every man be at the polls. Finally,
let us offer our earnest prayers and best
efforts to the Almighty Ruler of men and
nations lor the salvation of our beloved
If not providentially prevented, I will
