THE WEEKLY OPINION.
Ficm The Daily Onxiox ot Monday. J
AnnK*TPD.—Joe. Brown (colored) wa»
arrested title evening by tlio military for
threatening colored voters for voting the
Thk Electiox To-Day.—The morning
wj» dark ami cloudy, with rain falling oc
casionally In heavy showers* Yet by seven
o'clock, the hour for opening the polls, not
less than a thousand whites and blacks had
assembled within and around the Court
House. When the polls were opened
general rush was uiado lor tho different
doors where the tickets were received.
Then began tho usual excited electioneer
ing by both political parties, and each
seemed determined to out do the other in
tho way of securing votes. Tho most of
the work seemed to be expended upon the
colored men, some of wlioui seemed to
stand the pressure and vote as they had
intended when they left their homes. The
Radical tickets wero printed upon
blue paper, with an engravlngofa rail
road train on the hack, the train running
upward on the ticket. The Democratic
tickets were white, yellow, red and n
dark blue, with the train on the hack, tho
locomotive heading downward. The Rad
icals kept n sharp lookout for tho dark
blue tickets, and were quite active In rush
ing around to sec that none of them Were
voted by the Intelligent colored sovereigns.
The negroes were all excitement, and en
gaged In expounding tho new Constitu
tion ns valuably, If not as intelligently, us
so many Webster* might have done. Home
rather rich scenes occurred.
One negro came In. elbowing hb way
through tho crowd, saying he wanted to
“ Have you a ticket," asked a young
gentleman with h roll of blue tickets In
his iiatid. Just at this moment another
young man approached the colored man,
and asked him to take a white tickets—
“O, lyes,” said the shade, 1 * 111 take It nod
will remember you when 1 see you again."
Another negro cried out: ‘•Gib me de
Express ticket; 1 goes on dat train."
" 1 can't ride on dat Bullock concern. It's
too near busted; I goes on de Gordon
wagon." said another.
Every white man had some especial ne
gro to electioneer, and every negro seemed
to have some sable brother under bis charge.
Many of the uninitiated were constantly
searching for some new Information, yet
asking the same questions over and over—
all showing that desire to have those whom
they have been wont to regard as their su
periors to be familiar with them.
•‘ Golly," said one ancient shade, u deso
big folks do come down to us now. After
de election dey won’t .-peak to us common
White men of every class and party
seemed to think it a duty to be iu close
caucus with the negro, and did not shrink
from imploring ids vote; the candidates
were partietihuly so.
We overheard one candidate in conver
sation with a colored man. when something
like the lollowlng conversation ensued:
“llow arc gou going to vote?"
“I’ll vote as Mars .Songo does," replied
“Then you will vote against your race."
Jald the candidate.
*•1 don’t euro if 1 do." replied the negro,
‘•1 am free and will vote as 1 please*"
a Wh»t l- your name?" was the next
question. The darkey gave ir. What tho
mative was for asking tiie negro for his
name we do not know.
-You got ills face on your ticket ?" asked
one negro of another, at the same time
showing a photograph of Col. Bullock.
“Go way wid dat huv," said tho other,
• liar's too much iielly for do face."
A colored man named Aaron Dobha pro
claimed publicly that lie had been paid
three weeks ago to work for Col. Bullock
and the Radical ticket, and that he then
had the money III his pocket. Tills state
ment he repented three or four times. In a
very loud tone, and iu the hearing of at
Jpast twenty person*.
Although the whole Hall III the lower
story of the Court House was crowded,
and some live or six hundred whites and
blacks on the outside, yet the utmost good

when near there, some female friend called

Wiikkk’s that Laxd and Mclk?—Quite it
number of colored men have been making
Inquiries upon the street for the office ot*
the man who was to give them the laml

would legally Ik? called corruption or tho
sacred Ballot Box, but It looks to us ilko
something very nearly akin to it.
When political parties are reduced to
such straiu in this. It seems to us that lc
would lie much better for their reputation
as a party, that they close out and bo hon
orably defeated. If a |K>lltlc*l party uses

OmcR.—Our dispatches to-day inform us
that Mr Johnson lias withdrawn the nom
ination of Hon. Thomas Ewing, and *e it
to the Senate the name of General J. M.
Schofield, Major General U» S. A.* the
present Commander of the First Military
Distriet. General Schofield Is regarded by
those who know him as a Conservative,
and If court rim'd would probably act In
harmony with the President.
But the Senate regards Mr. Stanton as
the Secretary of War, and It Is not proba
ble that hotly would throw away so pliant
a tool us lie k for one they could not con
trol. Ami more than this. It would look
a |ioor exchange to give the Commission of
k Major-General for a ten months lease
upon a Cabinet office. We think the Pres
ident la wasting time In bidding for the
Military Chieftains of Jhe country.
