This is a movement on the part of the

and sustained by the citizens generally,

many respects, intellectually,by the course
of study and training they will undergo to

to commend it to the favorablo consider

The undersigned earnestly appeal to
the women of the whole South to aid
them in obtaining contributions for the
erection of a monument at Richmond,
which is to stand as a lasting memorial
of the love borne our great Chief by a
mourning and grateful people. The sol
diers, through their resolutions passed at
their great meeting so lately held in
Richmond in honor of General Lee, have
called upon us to join thorn in collecting
contributions for "the desired object.
An organization for that purpose has
been already formed by the undersigned
and to the women of the South—from
Maryland to Texas—we appeal for aid.
The fourth Sunday in November (Nov.
27th) has been selected as the day on
which a collection shall bo taken np in
every church throughout the length and
breadth of our Southern land. This is
the only possible way by which a volun
tary aud simultaneous offering can be
mode to the memory of him whom we
would honor in death as we linve honor
ed and loved him in life. With perfect
confidence in the love which his people
bore him, and in their zeal to do that
which, in honoring him most will most
redound to their own credit, we cau have
no doubt of the success of this plan if it
can be brought directly to the notice of
every clergyman aud congregation in the
South ; aud that this may be accomplish
ed, we call upon you to assist us. Let
the committees which have been appoint
ed for each State act promptly and with
vigor> Let them urge, that on the fourth
Sunday in November, each member of
every family should go to church with
that sum, small or great, which their
means will allow them to dedicate to this
To those clergymen and congregations
who object to collecting for such
ject ou tho Sabbath, we would suggest
that they should appoint some suitable
day in this mouth when a meeting of
their congregation should be held and
the collection taken up.
Let it be remembered that this monu
ment is to be raised by tho whole South;
that it is to be one to which, as a people,
may point proudly, and to which gen
erations for ages to come shall look up
with respect for the love which a defeated
people could bear to a great but fallen
hero. Shonld each of the 25,000
gregations scattered throughout the
South contribute but a trifling
what a monument could bo reared! Let
every man, waman and child, then, give
what they < a l, regardless of how small
how grout the snm may be.

Views and Opinions.—Hon. Gkatz
Brown, the liberal Republican and inti-

of Missouri, over MoCrueo, Radical Re
publican, made a speech at St. Louis a
few evenings ago. From a sketch of his
remarks we take the following :
We have gone through this contest,
we have rnude no appeal to party, we
have made no „ discrimination against
men, and yet we have made a distinctive
appeal to the common sentiment of the
common coantry, iu behalf of tho right
of every man to exercise the right of fran
chise of a free man, and we; have won up
on that principle. [Cheers.] Now I
have to say to you without any hesitation
that I have to thank tho Democratic par
ty of the State of Missouri [cheers] for
the cordial support that they have given
me in that position, aud I say further
more that no party has over shown more
perfect command of self, more perfect
disregard of past traditions, more per
fect devotion to the patriotic welfare of
the common country, than liaaitho Demo
cratic party in the last election in this
Stato of Missouri. [Cheers.] I can say
to you frankly, my fellow-citizens, that
I am the lust man in this nation to disre
gard tlio obligations under which I stand
aud that iu this election I recognize that
my obligations are in the largest measure
duo to the Democratic party of the State
iif Missouri. [Cheers.]
Now, my Iricnds, let me tell you
auotker thing, I recognize the fact that
tho Democratic party of the State of
Missouri has done that thing—it has cle*
vated itself upon a higher platform than
it ever ticcupied before ; it has gone for
the rights of all men, and in so doing it
is made an initiative of the future that
.. Jl go through all theStates of tbisUnion.
It has cut itself loose from tho formulas
aud the obstructions of the past, and it
lias made a platform upon which the
young men of this nation can stand—
[cheers]—a platform where they can stand

A Montgomery dispatch of the 29th
says that the meeting last night to ex
press indignation at the course of Smith
and Bingham, in refusing to vacate their
offices, was very largely attended. All
the speeches were made by Republicans,
the principal speaker being Jodge Morse,
defeated Republican candidate for Attor
ney General. He said the election was a
fair [and peaceful one; he had already
tamed over bis office to his suooessfnl
Democratic competitor, and ha did aobo-
carso his successor jraa entitled to it. He
denounced the set of looking the wheels
of Government as high-handed usurpa
tion. Several Republican members of
the Legislature also spoke in condemna
tion of Smith apd Bingham. Mr. Gra
ham, a Republican member from Perry
county, offered a resolution, which
adopted, expressing indignation and dis
approbation of the people si the o
taken by Smith and Bingham.

tire ripe old age of 73. She had been a

TALE OF A NET.KO RADICAL.
A relative of tlio writer owned, during
slavery time, a first-rate negio mechanic.
He was indulged iu every way, and tho
bondage he was supposed to endure did
not hurt him any. After the war, this
clever block man struck ont for himself.
Ho moved to tho seaboard, and became
at once a carpenter aud a Radical politi
cian. Ho managed to do a moderate
business at his trade, and his name was
paraded sonorously in the newspapers.
He was, we believe, a noted man in a
small way, and had a big name to pub
lish. For five years, he has been, as ho
was well qualified to be, a species of lead
ing Radical among his own race. Every
thing seemed to go promisingly with him
until a few days back. In a fracus last
week ho killed another black man. He
was arrested and imprisoned. Iu this sad
extremity, did lio get succor from the
Radical oil venturers in Savannah ? Did
he ever think it worth while to mako his
appeal for help in that direction ? From
the gloom of his prison, his mind fixed
instinctively npon the man who had
once exercised gentle sway over him, and
who was many miles away. To this, his
former master, he wrote one of the most
piteous letters wo have ever read, beg
ging him for God’s sake nnd for tho sako
bf old times, to oome and help him. This
letter exhibited a strong reliance that tho
heart of the old master would be touched
und help of all*sorts, money, counsel
and the like liberality extended. What
right, though, had this convict to moke
any such appeal ? He hod helped all ho
could to destroy the prosperity of the
very man to whom his mind reverted.—
Would not that gentleman thus suplica-
ted bo perfectly justified in turning a deaf
ear to the cry oi distress which came
forth irom the prison at Savannah ? He
certainly would; but it is not likely that
he will. And yet the benefaction that he
is about to consummate may bear, as it
has done over and over again, the sting
of ingratitude, in cose the unfortunate
negro should escapo hanging.
What could more aptly illustrate that
the negro, in hia day of calamity, relies
upon the Southern man whom he essays
tornin with the ballot, and has no
fidenoo whatever in the men who aro us
ing his suffrage as a convenient method
of robbery and corruption ?
. Wp do not ask the negroes to listen to
ns. We ask them to listen to these facts.
At Iho same time, we may as well hint
that the time may come when they shall
appeal in vain even to the tender sympa
thies of Southern men.
