vlyo at the in i lilitnvy lo hunt Mam- I servo 1! illoallsiti. Georgia til s nugust Iiwly Imd mimVra of enUrprinliig dale- ' rum llio Northern States, long ^li iv.-jilent here to smcllthoflesh and hunger for tho suhataneo vii—lilnek plantation hands, mm- . ;n rend or ivrlto, a veteran member tho Sing Slug Penitentiary, New Tor!;,‘other candidates for Penltenlla- rv honors, and a few rospcctnlilo fill- ri’ena ol' Georgia, martyrs to their pit-; Georgia, however, lioing leas represented than any other locality.— Tlio result eat) bo Imagined. A largo edition or Radical Party Constitutions had been slrnek off in'Washington, and.the charge put on llio “ kid glove" item or Congressional expenses, and a copy sent to each Southern State.— This edition was adopted generally, according to order, with somo little rontjros or party venom, engrailed ilioveoii, Indigonnns to local animosi ties. In Georgia the Executive was load ed with patronage to liny up tho venal in tho Stale and create tho scalawag order'of nobility. Tho pooplo were defrauded with hollow promises of ra- ' .known lo ho worthless.. The no- gro was bamboozled with hope of glit tering-privileges, meant to be with- ; held. Tho military pulled-tho wires all Ilia time. An election was orilor- od. Tho State Bwarmcd with Regis ters, learned ill trleks nnd sold to Rad icalism. "-Sharp and quick” rascality managed the thing. Every, tr ek was riolio to juggle the .people of.tliolr will, ■ from importing iliogni votes to ex cluding legal voters, Including false . counts and. manipulated hnllot-boxcs. Radicalism triumphed in tho person of n Now'York bundle carrier, who has plnyorl tho'zonloiis partisan in ovory net. Georgia’s nolilo son was defeat ed; and Blodgett, mad at missing a slice of llio plunder, was heard after wards to spitefully vow he would ox- poso the fraud of the election; but n small sop closed his month. But the record is too sickening to lie pursued. South Carolina has a Legislature two-thirds negro. Two or her Sti- . promc Court Judges nro young men only thirty years old, not two years rend in law; and Ynukoe officers.— Think of the comody of grave ques tions of Ufa'and property being (loci ded hy such men. Every Governor of tho Southern States is a Northern man —Bureau and army officials intrigued into plaoo by the bayonet with the black ballot. ‘TENNESSEE AND KENTUCKY. Fortunately two States, right side of cnpli other, niford an Instructive con trast of Radical and Democratic rule. See proud, prosperous, gallant, happy Kentucky. Not a man disfranchised unless a Democrat—the Radicals se cure in every right—90,000 democrat- io majority—business buoyant, com merce bounding, agriculture remuner ative., land valuable, $1,500,000 of pub lic debt paid In tlireo years, heavy as sets in tlie treasury, cities growing, population Increasing, her blue grass fields nnd peaceful atmosphere, her smiling harvests nnd internal quiet, holding out seductive temptation to the poor nnd stormtost of every land. See abased, VinfftltunaVo, miserable, bankrupt Tennessee—90,000 of her best men disfranchised under tho l-nlo of Ignorant blacks nnd venomous whites, business depressed, commerce stagnant, agriculture nnpnying, land . worthless, population diminishing, ne gro militia under mhlignnnt lend of Brownlow, bitterness, strife, scalding discontent, land on the brink of revo lution, secret organizations at deadly feud, $18,000,0.00 added to tier public dobt in tlireo years of Radical corrup tion, unable to pay tlie interest on it, and the only prospect for'bettor limes the removal of her paralytic and vl- perish Executive nnd his pot policy, to congenial climes below. I f a tree is to lie judged by its fruits, I ask yon, intelligent patriots, which is tlie rule with which wo should help to saddle this country for tho next four years. Ai-o yon willing to seo this beautiful contlnnnt free and lmppy, like glorious Kentucky, orsmitton aiid gangrened, like charred old Tennessee? For myself, I should deem that I had the vulturos appetite for oarrion, if with (ho horrible fruits of a rank Radica lism beforo my eyes, I aided tlie spread of its bad doctrines and worse deeds. THE FINANCES? . But whilo tlie questions connected with tho perversion of our system of government nnd ruinous change ill oiir institutions aro tho weightiest argu ments against Radicalism, there nro momentous questions of finance for con I deration. Attend, for these touch jou ' pockets, nnd yon are pool. It will be seen Hint the pecuniary condition of the country is shocking, and Radical rulo fabulously extrava gant. It nil comes directly from tlie fatal innovations upon’ tlie Constitu tion, done by Radicalism, andyou must restore the true theory of the govern ment to correct these ns well ns nil tho other abuses, and lids can only be d6ne by electing a party opposed to them. Yon remember Buchanans adminis tration .of $15^000,000 n year ivas de nounced extravagant. What think yon of over $500,000,000 a yeas, over six times more ? That is tlio cost of Rad- iynlism to tills poor burdened country. If tligro ivero no other reason for a Southern man to vote against that par ty its enormous costiiiiess.would lie ir resistible. Nobody but itself could do worse, wliilo anybody else better, lienee n change is indispensi- ble. . ‘ The taxation by tlio Federal Gov ernment for the Inst three years has been $L695.QOO,000,, That is over ^500,000,000 a year. . Row has it been spent? In reducing the publio debt? On-tho 1st Aug. 1883, the publio tjebt was $108,000,000 greater than in April 1st 1305. _ Think oflt, groaning tax-payer, Rad icalism wrung $1,594,000,000 from you in tlireo years, more than 13 years of Democratic and Whig rule including ,two great wars cost us before the war, spent every dollar of it on themselves, ■mid added $108,000,000 more to tlie public, delft, it-pould kayo reduced tlie public debt from $2,000,000,000, t" ot lon3t $1,500,000,000, and support ed tlio. government liberally. Demo- cratlo rule would have done that, nud Radicalism ought to Im r nm against it because it nml I nm going to vo tlmt will do bettor. And tlio publio dobt Meordl , Mr. Wnlkor Is still increasing nl the yearly rate of $105,000,000. Tho mind shrinks bewildered nttlicso figures, lint tho public nnd private welfnro BhrlnkJ stlUfmuro tiudor their terrible effect. This inonoy was spent In keeping up armies during pence, In Freedmcn’s Bureau’s, in Reconstruction scliomos, nnd other political engines, intunded to prop up Radicalism. And It Is. bo- enuso Democratic policy is opposilil to these unconstitutional nloasurM of par ty to sustain Itself at the public cost, tlmt I am for |lt. And’nioro’piu'lleul- nry should 1 Southern moil lie ngniiist those costly and opproSsIvo schemes, because they all wore made for tho South, boar on tlio South, and degrade midjinjnro tho South. the Freedman’s bureau, Tho Freedman’s Bureau has cost about $50,000,900, a nice little sum Itself. It Is simply n hugo negro nsy- liltn and freo boardinghouse. It was based on the Idea that the negro conld not take care of liiinsolfhnd needed a Guardian. Yet, think of it; tlio Radi cal party has taken this childish crea ture Hint required a Guardian, and mndo him tho ruler and law-maker for tho Southern white man. If tho negro' needed the Bureau as a Guardi an of his ignorance and wenknoss, ho was unfit to make laws nnd rule us.— If ho.was fit to be a legislator nud vo ter, ho did not need tho Bureau. In one ease tho white man was wronged, in tlio other the negro insulted. Let Radicalism choose tlio horn of tlio dil emma It prefers. No I llio Bureau was the base creation Of party to help it secure victory. Democratic policy lias boon nnd is opposed to this combined mockery, In sult and outrage of tlie Bureau, and that Southern mmi Hint enn overlook tho vile design nnn humiliating enforce ment of this bad nnd useless institution upon him, nnd vote ngninst tiio party Hint is against It nnd for removing it from him, surely thinks little of Ills honor or interest. MORE FIGURES. But this $1,494,000,000 is not all that Radicalism has collected from the peo ple's hard earnings. It is provable tlmt it co'lected more still, tiiat never reached tlio government coffers,hut was stolen oil tlie way from tlio people’s pockets to tlio U. S. Treasury. In 1807 90,000,000 gallons of liquor were dlstlllod in the U. S. Tlie tax was $2 per gallon. Tho govorr.mont should linvo received $180,000,000 revenue from tliis source, but only received $30,000,000 allowing the stupendous robbery of one item alone of 150,000,- 000 from tlio country by corrupt Rad icalism. Talk of plunder! Tlie word never'bad moaning until this day and generation. It 1ms been child's play up lo this timo, nnd has only grown lo nduit proportions under tlio ibslcring care of Radicalism, its tutelary divin ity. Butler has well boon chosen its leader. BONDS. A word ns to the bonds. They amount lo nearly $2,000,000,OdO, are payablj in grcenbnc '•», interestra gold, and not taxed. They are principally in rich men’s hands. These rich moil don't pay taxes nnd poor men do, nnd tho poor men pay tho taxes tlio rich mall should pay. This is inequality of burden, at tiicpoof man’s expense, for tlio rich man. Tho Radical's want to pay tlieso bonds in gold, when they nro payable in paper inonoy, to biijj up tlie bond h»ldcrs-in Radical interest. This will add $300,000,000 to the dobt, and for nothing. It is robbery, terri ble and wholesale, nnd robbery of tho poor man. It -makes gold money for the capitalist, and paper money for tlio laborer. Vdrlly, bonds nro good tilings, and Radicalism; is tho bond holder’s proph et. And the laborer that votes tlie Radical-ticket verily aids tho plunder of his own pookot, and will I o paid hs thesorijntiros Iwth if—the “fool accord ing to his folly." ‘ .. l TAXES, I must show you how the man with no property pays heavy taxes. He Is n consumer. Every tax nnd commis sion is liitnped in the prico ho pays— Everything Is tnxod from plows to spoons, nnd lie pays it. Why is coffee 30 cents per pound. It used to lie 0. Stignr now 20 cents was formorly G to 10 cents. Taxes nro the enuse; nnd the poor laboring consumer pays the whole bill. A- hundred little nibbles nt Hie snmotliing'ent It out, and every nibble ends in your pocket. The producer, Manufacturer, anil every trader pays Ids tax on tho tiling, and you pay all with a percentage to each for his sup port. Tho Radicals say the Reveuno is di minished nnd point to that as a proof of reduced taxes. It is bosh. Tlie diminished revenue grows out of tho' decrease in the prosperity of tho land under Radical misrule, and to make this diminution ifppalling, tlui govern ment expenSes increase. It’s cost is grenter and its receipts less, and heav ier taxes must result. l’nt it out I Put some now party in I Yonr interest demands it. The public good exacts it. The burdens got bigger, and the means swelled Sinking dally into'deeper distress, self- preservation crtes'oiit for a change. With this lingo pyramid of debt, tho tomb of our prosperity, nnd the stupendous yearly drain upon your means, all tho result of Radical ism, that, fqetion hnvoyot tlio astound ing effrontery to claim economy. That is another old word changed in t heir new political vernacular. On our Stnte roan rSlli informed they reduco wages mid increase tlie Immis, to multiply votes, and claim tlmt as reduction nnd oconomy. But to cap the climax of audacity, they charge their criminal extrava gance and corruption to Andrew John son, When they have tied him hand and foot, and stripped him of all power, savo to send them neper vetoes protesting against their crimes, thntthey laugh at. TUB CRY OE AVAR. Does not this nmko an irresistalilo indictment for misrule against this par ly? I have not told a tithe of its crimes, aud my space is out. If theso charges are tt'uo, don’t the party do IS. t? Does tho Radical ? lie don’t deign yon n simply yells “you mean w us have ponce." . Ho ehnrges rol 'libn.nftninst our ponpldr It is a in Issue—a wicked trick to blind onqulry into his Crimes, rtq knows how tint Northern mind clings to qnlot, sntod with war. lie plays on tlmt sentiment. Ho misrepresents ui.’ He stirs strife to charge it to ns lor political capital, lie gnrhlus our statements. He fabri cates falsehoods, and slicks to thorn ns truths. Tho grunt lionust ml ml of tlio North'll 'misinformed and deceived hy this faction nlio-.t tlio South, nnd to day If wo could show how peaceful nnd loyal wo nro, Hndlcnllsm would crum ble to shlvorsof its own weakness. But it Is bnlstorod up by slander. Never viler falsehood was uttered than that tlio South means war. Wo hum for ponce with tho hot yearning of despnlr. Our troubled hearts cry (or it. Our waste plaoos olamor for it, Not for tlio stupor tlmt coincs.from the loss Of 1 hope under successful tyranny, hut tho swoot quiet tlmt flows boainily ffortf contcntmuiit under golden rule. Domocrnoy means no war; and Rad icalism does, Ibr it arms negroes nnd enlls'for troops. Tlio Domncrnts don’t say tlie election of Grant (fill cntiso war, for they will submit. But Radi cals claim war from Seymour’s election. Oortnlnly-'Democrat's won’t light, if successful; It wonld ho needless. Rad icalism admits then it will fight, if de feated. If it- menus war if not elect ed, let It say-so; and seo'lf'it.cart got office license it won’t submit to the people's choice, mid will ruin if it don't rule. I beliovo tho North does not'endorse Radical misrule, hut is nfrnld of war at our linrtds; If wc nro dol'eatod this will ho the ennso. If weenn convineo our Northorn brethren tlmt we moan ponce, all will bo well. Mi’ hope for tho country Is tlmt we may lie under stood by them before the Constitution is all gone. I Imvo stated some of the evils and errors of Radicalism to show its intrinsic wrong ; nnil whenever llio North Is free from its fem-s of our loy alty and peaceful itBRRadicalism must inevitably die. Let oilr people bear, nnd toaeii the country how true wo nro to our plodges. I know how Imrd'lt Is to be quiet under vile misrepresenta tion. I do not blnino the North for its douhts, when at homo wu Imve men who reitnta and endorse the black slander upon qs. Why in this Southern town ol Dal ton there iviis stuck. npTiir-tJie door ot' our Depot, opk} by onr State,.a mis- arable'placard, witli base caricatures of men culled “ Democratic loaders;” over them, “Riotor Seymour,” “Butch er Forrest,” “ Pirnto Seininos,” nnd “Hangman. Hampton;” and beneath, garbled extracts from their speeches to show wnr-like intent. And this by Southern men I Even good Northern men must glory in Southern prowess ns a part of-American history mid nn illustration of American character.— But Hmt Southerner, who' in tile service of a faction hostile to his peoplu can falsely affix tho oxeerablo epithet of “Hangman” to .the knightly and stain less Hampton—recognized'type of Ids countrymen’s purest chivalry—brands JliBOwij person .with tlio lurid embla zonry of a blistering stigma. Oh Slmmo I shame II upon him that would thus villlfy Ids own- people, nils represent his own blood, thus slime our purest patriotism and stab Ids own honor. Talk of war I This is war in deed, the most detestable of war I— War upon truth, upon decency, upon tlio ties of blood, and the holiness'oV homo. The sensibilities revolt at the ignoble tiling, nnd turn nwny shocked nt Hie faction Hmt resorts to such un worthy means to succeed. History when it rights tho record of this’day, must for hmmiidty’e sake drop the mantle of oblivion . over such, foul abasement. 11ECON8TBUCTIONISTS. I appeal to the lionest Ueconstfnc- tloidat to leave tlmt party. You said you voted for Reconstruction to get into the Union, Hint it was wrong'in principle, but politic. It was bad, but 1 yon would avoid worso by doing it.— It is no longer politic. You are in tho Union. Give it np when you own it is wrong, and it is no longer politic. It lias done the only good you said it could do. Renounce it when it is do ing Imrm, and Its good nil done. If you cling to It now,you endorse wrong, when it is not even expedient. THE CANDIDATES. In regard to the candidates, there is little to lie said. Seymour is a states man, a 'Christian and a patriot. Ho will adorn tlie office, and make us proud of him. Against General Grant I have nothing. Ho says lie is no statesman. 1 take his word. And .1 don't want him put lo do Wlmt liu says ho cant do. As a General I concede to him nil he asks. lie lead the troopB Hint van- guished our heroic dead-, and I say it don't become mu to midhi-vnllio onr own matchless soldiers by depreciating tho generalship that conquered them. In a late speech at LaFnyotto, Indi ana, Mr, Golfax used those words;- * "In 1800 you know men dared to stand up in tile South nnd denounce secession, and declare their jevotioii to the Union; now no man can do so without being in danger of his life.— Speakers in the South tcaclrpeoplo to ostracize those who speak- in defense of tho Uuion.” I hold that no Southerner can' sup port a public'man who thus traduces Ids people. The stntement Is untriio in toto. It is nn intended falsehood, nnd should forfeit him tho respect of tho worthy everywhere. But that nn nspevsed man should endorse his villi, fier is monstrous. But tlie issue is a greater one than personal clioico between two candi dates. A' heavenly angel could not but ruin the land under Radical poli cy. It is Hint policy upon w I Jell wo must decide. Born of revolution, nur tured by hate,'brimming witli fanatical bigotry, and ruinously destructive, it preys upon tlio noble, it befouls with sacriliglous lmml the sacred, nnd roots out of tho land nil thing’s good. Tlio isstio is, peace or anarchy; the constitution or mob cuprlce; freedom or tyranny; a constitutional govern ment or a consolidated despotism ; the principles tlmt Ibr 73 years gave us prosperity, or tlio mad practice? that from tho creation have sundered re- 110 song of ii publics ; tlio glndsomosongof a lmppy realm or tho anguished soli of n ei-uci- fled land ; llio smiling glory ol'nngullo pence or a “noblo mid most sovereign" commonwealth, ■•Lltoisim-l Ill-Mil, JmijiIchI out o' nino, nud Imrstl.lj The Southern man witli respect for himself nnd section ns well as for his Spill)try, can go but ono way. Witli llioso who would nmko IiIb State mi honored equal, nnd not n degraded in ferior to otlior States ; who linvo the true, theory of llio Constitution, and hot tlioso wlm overrido every funda mental prinelplo of constitutional gov ernment. His own soft experience of woo should tench him llio clanger of leaving the Constitution. Let his licnrt not fuller from Ills du ty. Know tho right and maintain it.— Let no,despondency overcome, no lirilio buy, no dmigor daunt, no wllo seduce him from honor. There bo men who sny it is cant to talk of honor in our deep trouble. Awny with such foill admonition. Without honor, the di rest vassalage Is cerium. Tho splrjt of respect killed, mid nil is lost. Though every other Stuto go Radi cal,-let Georgia stand steady to right; ami our triumph will bo certain. , “ Djiiiin yo hoar tlio pibroch," tlmt tells yoif of coming relief?

But the Avenging .Furies of an execrated doom speed swiftly upon its track, and the nwful scorn now giv en to the rod-hnnded Jacobinism of France will forever visit this more than Gorgon horror. —— PORK.—This article bids fair to rule nt much lower prices this scnsoir limn fm-sovernl years pa9t.

There is no disguising tlio fact,Hmt the recent elections In the tlu'de great Northern Stntos of tho Union, Im9 cast n gloom over overy .ti-iiu ninn in tho Smith. They expected a different re sult—they expected reason tq reign, not passion, hatred, and a fiendish de sire to continiio to torture and punish a helpless, down-trodden people. But they Imve decided otherwise—they imvo been made to believe by cunning, lUisotupulous, dying Mongrel leaders, that our people arc still rebellious, and nro only Malting nn opportunity lo again take up arms ngniiist the gov ernment.- But though theso oloction9 Imve gone for tlio fabblo and ngniiist the Cmistitblioh and good government, let tlie democracy not Im discouraged —let llierft ntlt relax their chergies, not give up (ho contest—tlie result in these Slates does not hy any means decide tlie election of Grant—.let them remember the contest between Polk and Clay in 1844—State after State, just prior to tlie Presidential election of tlmt year, rollud up heavy Whig majorities, and yet Polk was elcetod hy an unprecedented voto. While tho Whigs wero drunken witli excitoment. the Democrats worked like beavers, nud tlio filial result was a glorious ono. Now, while tho Mongrels aro drunken, eiilhtisod, confident, lot tlio democracy work! work! WORK! as they .lie vet worked before, nnd victory may yet beonrs. All is not yet lost!

It is by strife and '1110 most hare-faced, willful lies concerning tlie disloyally of the people of tlio South —lies tlmt would slmmc tlie devil him self—that they keep their rotten party alive nud thumsulvcs in power.

Early Thursday morning, lllough a dl’enl’y cloud mantled tlio Heavo'iis, nnd overy electric flash brought forth omonous tidings from the North, the honest yeomnnry oftlie mountains ho- gnu to mnroii in solid plmlanx through onr strocts, nnd oro tlio hour of assem bling to hear the great political truths, soveral thousand puro, Democratic won and womotii “with light hearts and gay," thronged overy thorough fare in tlio city.
