OUR MOTTO—QU ICK, CHEAP. aug*5—dawtf DECLARATION OF OF THE UNION REPUBLICAN PASTY OF GEORGIA. ADOPTER AY IMS STATE CONTENTION, Atlanta, July 4th, 1867. Where as. We, humbly acknowledging our de pendence upon an overruling Providence, who shapes the destinies ot men and nations, thank Al mighty God for having, through agencies and in strumentalities in His wisdom selected, preserved our Government when its deepest foundations were being shaken by the mighty upheavings of the recent rebellion. And W here as, The loyal men of Georgia desire the earliest practicable settlement of the disturbed condition of tbe country: and whereas, we believe that the establishment of justice is essential to en- iuring peace, that patriotism should be exalted as a virtue, and it is the duty of the State to cher ish all its people; and whereas, those who assert these principles are called Republicans, through out tbe U a ion. Therefore, Reioivtd, 1st. That we adopt the name of the Union Republican party of Georgia, and declare our selves in alliance with tbe National Republican party of tne Union, and for the unconditional sup- 1 port of the Union of these States. R«t»lted, 3. That we pledge our hearty support to the reconstruction measures of the Congress of the United States. R&tolvtd. 8. That it is the duty of the State to educate all her children, and to that end, we re commend tbe establishment of a general system of free schools. Revolted. 4. That the Union Republican Party Is identified in its bistory and by its essential prin ciples with the rights, the interests and the digni ty of labor, and is in sympathy with the toiling masses of society, and that the working men o Georgia will receive at its hands every encourage ment and assistance that may be necessary to pro- 1 tect their full rights; and, that in the mainten- . ance of the position taken and the principles we have this day avowed, we cordially invite the co-operation of all citizens, without regard to their political antecedents. Revolted, 5. That the Union Republican Party of the State of Georgia pledges itself to maintain the free and legal rights of all men, and to abide by the prescribed terms of restoration, in electing to office those men only who can comply, in all respects, with the requirements of the Acts of Congress, and who prerer the Government of the United States to any other that could be framed.

Now and then may be seen instances of the indulgence of those vices which were common to them while they were slaves. Bat they are everywhere gradnally rising above the dominion of these vices, and are looking up to the maintainance of a good character. Noth ing has contributed more effectively to their moral education than their religious meetings. The ministers of the Methodist Episcopal Church have conducted a series of camp meetings, at which thtire were many thousands of colored people, and at some of them a considerable number of whites. The latter were not mere idle spectators, hnt in many cases deeply inter ested worshippers. They looked on with astonishment while they witnessed scenes of religious excitement and displays of Divine power such as reminded them of the old camp meeting scenes of twenty and thirty years ago. The following were the places where these meetings were held, and the estimated numbers in attendance: West Point, 2,000; Whitesville,2,000; Franklin,500; LaG range, 5,000; Grantville, 1,200. Thug, these men brought within the range of these meet ings not less than fifteen thousand people, and there were about five hundred acces sions to the church. A description of these meetings will suffice to convey proper idea of the character of all of them, and the blessed influence which they are likely to exert upon the country at large. The Newnan camp meeting commenced on Wednesday evening, September 11th. and closed the following Sunday night at 11>£ o’clock. There were nine white preachers, aad about twenty colored preachers and exhorters in attendance. On Sunday the number of people were vari ously estimated at from four to six thou sand. A brush arbor, about one hundred and fifty feet square, had been erected in the suburbs of the city, nearHhe railroad; on one side a stand, or elevated platform, nearly twenty feet square, had been built for the accommodation of the preachers, with an open area in front of about 20x40 feet for the “ mourners,” usually called the “ altar.” The crowd gradually increased until Saturday, when it became too large to be sheltered by the ample arbor, and a portion of the congregation went into the church. ■ At first a.few of the white people came out at night and seated themselves on the railroad, a little way oft; or reclined in the eorners of tbe fences, within hearing of tbe preacher’s voice. As the meeting ad ranced, they timidly approached nearer and nearer, until they gathered around the outskirts of the assembly, some sitting in their carriages, some sitting on the ground, others standing wherever they could ob-“ ttin r* -heat position to view the moral s«*r' Thus they continued to ap- pr»* if Sunday, wbeh they ventured to accede to the pressing invitations of their colored lViends, and took seats when ever they could find them in the congrega tion. Many of them, however, could get no seats, and they pressed in on all sides upon the outer verge of the assemblage, listening eagerly to the preaching, and se riously contemplating the religious exer cises of the negroes. At one time they numbered several hundred, and many of them confessed that they had never wit nessed the like before. Sunday at 11 o’clock, and Sunday night presented scenes that had never before been realized on the soil of Georgia. Be neath and around the rude brush arbor were assembled thousands of colored peo ple, with many whites, listening In breath less stillness to the Word of £M*. At the close of caeh s€fvl6e, when an invitation was given to seekers to approach the altar, hundreds rushed forward into the open area, and prostrated themselves for prayer. The Christian people gathered around them, singing, praying, and shouting. As their ferver warmed amid these devout exercises, the shouting, singing, and praying rose upon the evening air like the sound of mighty waters. Here might be seen a group of a score or more with clasped bands, up-lifted eyes, stream- ing with tears, and swinging to and fro, while with ecstatic features, and in voices of sweetest melody, they sung the songs of redemption. There is a poor, blind man, the sweetest singer in this new-born host of freed men, and around him are clustered hundreds who join him in the enchanting chorus; while, with hands and feet, and the motions of their bodies, they keep time to the heavenly strains. He is from La- Grange—poor, blind, almost helpless, but he is pious, and has been the ‘’singing pil grim’’ of these camp meetings. His name is Billy McFarland. His fame as a singer has spread far and wide over this section of country. There is another interesting group. The whites have huddled together in a large crowd in rear of tbe preachers stand, and a zealous mulatto exhorter, Frank Joseph, from LaGrange, seizes the opportunity to make an impression upon them. He goes into their midst, sometimes kneeling, some times standing, and assuring them of his love for all, beseeches them to repent of their sins, and join the “ old mother Metho dist Church.” I have attended camp meetings from my earliest recollection in Georgia, have heard many excellent sermons, and witnessed many wonderful displays of God’s power at them, but I have never, except at La- Grange, seen » meeting Ui«“vron!<l com pare with the one at Newnan. It remind ed one of the old fashioned days of Meth odist camp meetings in the days of my boyhood. The preaching, as to matter and manner, was excellent. It was spiritual, pointed, powerful. It cut its way to the hearts of all, and was attended by the demonstra tion and power of the Holy Ghost. Five sermons, preached Friday night and Sat urday noon, by Rev. Dr. Prettyman, of Atlanta, were incomparable for simplicity, eloquence and unction. Some of his flights and illustrations 1 never heard surpassed. Rev. Standing, an Englishman, lately a Wesleyan Missionary in Australia, preached two powerful sermons. Rev. C. M. Caldwell made, alsoi, a powerful effort Snnday r. m. on the Christian Armor. The colored preachers and exhorters all did. well. Monday morning, from 8 to 9 o’clock, the crowd gathered at the depot, and while they were waiting for the train the sound of singing, shouting and rejoicing contin ued the same as if it had been at the camp meeting altar. Two box cars were filled with the colored people going down the road, and all the way to LaGrange they continued to shout, sing, rejoice and pray. At each stopping place on the way the people, astonished at so strange an occur rence. gathered in crowds to look upon the novel spectacle. Sitting in the hindmost passenger car, I had a good chance to observe the counte nances and hear the remarks of the pas sengers. Some, as might he expected, mocked and made witty remarks, others looked serious, while every one was struck with surprise and wonder to see a camp meeting on a railroad train. One passen ger said : “Well, well, this is the first port able camp meeting that ever I saw.” The polite and gentlemanly Superintendent of the Atlanta and West Point Railroad, Col. L. P. Grant, has a claim upon the gratitude of the colored population for granting them the privilege of going to and from these camp meetings at half the regular fare. These meetings have exerted a most wholesome influence wherever they have been held. They have stopped the mouths of gainsayers, and confounded those who have charged us with preaching politics at our meetings. There have been eight or ten camp and two days’meeting held by us since the 1st of August, and the subject of politics was not once named at any of them. God is with this people, blessing them temporally and religiously, and the mis sionaries find teachers among them are moulding a power that will be felt for good over fill our beloved but unfortunate territory: This is the true conservatism.
