ATLANTA, <3--A..: SUNDAY MORNING::::: OCTOBER 13. Union Reconstruction Ticket THIRTY-FIFTH SENATORIAL DISTRICT. IX. V. XI. XIIIXKR, of Fulton. JAMES L. HUMMING, of Fulton. N. L. ANG1ER, of Fulton. JOHN H. FLYNN, of Fulton. W. C. LEE, of Cloy ton. HENRY G. COLE, of Cobk. DAVID IRWIN, of Cobb. “Under Which Kino, Bkzomian ?”—The “Democratic friends of the NortH” are at cross purposes.. In the West they are howling for Repudiation. In New Eng land they arc damning Repudiation to everlasting perdition. Thus it will be sees that their printiples respecting tbeNation- al debt depend very much upon how their spare funds are invested. This is good Democratic doctrine. Selfishness has ever been their motto. They care about as much for the South or the Southern people, as they do for the King of Dahomeny. They would gladly get us into another fight, and then appropriate money to whip us out.— They are a Janus-faced set; wholly un worthy the confidence of a true and hon orable people. Mr. Johnson ano tub South.—Presi dent Johnson has repeatedly advised those Southern men who so zealously support his policy to appeal to the courts for satis faction, if they feel that the military au thorities have deprived them of any of their rights. He has been particularly pointed in giving this advice to parties pardoned under his recent Amnesty Proc lamation; and they have obtained per mission from him to report his state ments. In several instances his friends assumed the authority from the permission to re peat, to put them in writing, and one of them has been seen by the Washington correspondent of the New York Times, headed, “To whom it may concern,” which embraces opinions about as follows: The President stated to the writer that he could not reopen registration without incurring certain risk of impeachment, al- thongh he had been advised to do so by some of the most earnest supporters of his policy, who argued that if he assumed the power to do so under his authority as Commandcr-in-Chief, giving orders to mil itary subordinates, he would be supported bv ibe Constitution-loving and law-abi ding Jportion of the people. On the other hand, other equally warm supporters of his policy had advised him that if lie attempt ed to assert his military power in din- ting the manner of the execution of civil du ties imposed on military authorities by a direct act of Congress, lie would be assum ing authority not vested in his office, either by the Constitution, the articles of war. or by any law now in existence, lie also stated'that the promulgation of the Am nesty Proclamation would result, if prop erly managed, in disrupting the Republi can party, because if the courts decided as be thought they should, that the classes pardoned bv it were restored to their full rights as citizens, and the leaders of tiiat party would persist in supporting the mil itary authorities in their refusal to allow them to register, the natural consequence would lie that the people would flock to the support of the judiciary. It will be observed that, according to this statement, the Proclamations of the Presi dent were nothing more nor less than elec tioneering documents, and that they were designed only for the campaign. This is the way he trifles with the vital interests of the Southern people. THE NORTHERN ELECTIONS. Opinions of the Press. The N. Y. Times says that the elections in dicate no increased confidence in the Demo cratic party, but signify a reaction against the extreme acts and measures of the Re publican party, and convey an admonition which ought to be salutary to political leaders. The Herald says: “The recent elections do not denote Democratic victories, but that the Republican element of the coun try has stepped aside to rebuke its leaders.” The Cincinnati Commercial says: “In addition to the assistance of Andrew John son, the extreme men in Congress have had the use of the Democratic party as an awful example and ever-present terror.— The moderate masses of the people have been driven, to make choice between the re actionary policy’of the Democratic party, rampant and unrepentant, with all its in iquities on its head, and the policy of the extreme Radicals. When there is no al ternative between going with the rebels or Radicals, the choice of intelligent and pa triotic people is, of course, to go with the Radicals. “But there is a popular weariness as to fighting the old battles of the war over all the time. There are some other things to think about. We begged Ben. Wade to stop the torrent of personal vituperation and partisan violence long enough to talk a little about some of the new issues which were particularly important here. Noth ing could be got out of him but the same old ding-dong. The third officer of the Government, Mr. Speaker Colfax, gave us but a very small amount of instruction in proportion to the latitude and longitude of his discourse, and indulged in an unseemly and untimely threat of hanging the first officer of the Government. The efficacy of such indiscreet harangues is seen in the election returns from Ohio. Something beside war talk will be wanted hereafter.” President Making.—A Washington let ter of the 8th says: “The evening Admin istration organ here announces that the meeting for the ratification of the nomi nation of Andrew Johnson for President, ana Gen. William T. Sherman for Vice President, which was appointed for the 10th inst,, has been postponed until the 18th proximo, when it w ill be held in the Cap itol. Tbe announctmeut is made with a great splurge of italics and small caps, and creates considerable surprise, as but few people kuew that such nominations were ever made. The fact is, that the Louisiana political bushwhackers, who have been here off and on for nearly a year trying to oust all the Federal office-holders in the Pelican State, got on a spree at Crystal Springs 6ome month since, and resolved themselves into a political party, number ing, all told, not over a baker’s dozen, and made tiie nominations. They agreed that they would meet at some future occasion for the purpose of ratifying their action, but. unfortunately for their object, a few of them got sober and failed to come to time. The result was that the bottom fell through and the new party of the future went to pieces.” Communicated.] Editors Opinion: The Intelligencer of yes terday morning, in its notice of the pro ceedings of the Georgia M.E. Church takes occasion to copy the following paragraph from the Enterprise (Miss) Star: In this connection, we desire respectful ly to enquire if the Rev. Mr. Talley refer, red to above, is the same to whom allusion is made below, in the paragraph we clip from the Enterprise (Miss.) Star: “A friend has just stepped in who gives us the following as a practical test of the sincerity of the newly converted Radicals. We recommend its general adoption by those of our colored people whose votes and influence the Radicals are endeavor ing to obtain by a regular system of equal ity hoodwinking. Rev. Mr. Talley, of the Montgomery Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, who is a “weak vessel,” has been bought up by the emmissaries of the Northern Methodist Church. In the igno rant zeal of a new convert, who. of course, wished to render some service for his raon- ney,he went into Summerfield district, over which Dr A. H. Mitchell presides and began the propagation of the perfect equality doc trine among the colored people. This equality was carried beyond Beyond; and as the legitimate result, was lionized by tbe negroes. An old gentleman of the white persua sion, residing in the neighborhood where this missionary of equality was laboring, saw proper to doubt Mr. Tallev’s sincerity, and told a favorite boy—an old-time house and body servant, who had placed great confidence in Mr. Talley as a sincere equali ty man—that he bad as well keep his mo ney—if he intended to give Mr. Talley any —until he could test his sincerity. A new idea struck Jack. Mr. Talley was to stay all night at Jack’s master's. When hd re tired to bed, Jack accompanied the rever end turncoat to his room and held bim in long conversation on tbe equality doctriney until Mr. Talley was fully committed to it, and. thoroughly sleepy, he took off his coat ready for bed; so did Jack. Boots came next; so did Jack’s. “ What are you up to?” quoth Mr. Talley. “Nuffin ’tall, sir. Eeg going to be *down to’ somefin. dat’s all,” replied Jack. “What’s that you are going to be “down to ?’ ” saith his reverence. “Well, I’se going to bed wid you, dat’s all dere is about it. I is jes as good as you is, accordin to the Lord’s gospel by you, and 1 is tired of sleeping wia myself in the shuck pen. So I is gwine to sleep wid you in master’s bed,” said Jack. Mr. Talley took a deliberate, indignant survey of Jack from head to foot, slowly put on Ms clothes, went to the stable, bri dled and saddled his horse, and left that ilk a sadder and a wiser man. The writer had the honor of meeting and making the acquaintance of the reverend gentleman in this city a few days ago, and believes that the Editor of the Intelligencer never would have permitted so gross and palpable a calumny to appear in the col umns of his paper, if he had taken the trouble to ask either Mr. Harrison or Mr. Crumley, of this city, who is J. M. Talley. The “so-called” joke is false, and was cat out of whole cloth to suit the purposes of a certain set of men, who can see no good outside of their own narrow circles. But seriously. Mr. Editor. It strikes me that if the gentlemen who control the columns of the Intelligencer would only take off their smoked spectacles, they would see in Atlanta a lot of Wue-eyed, kinky-headed niggers that were bleached out by somebody. long before the Radical party had any existence. Instead of try ing to Injure the character of a noble- TELEGRAPHIC. FROM THE KKW YORK PRESS ASSOCIATION'. Louisville, Oct. 12.—Justices Swayne and Ballard have decided that the Civil Rights bill is Constitutional. Samuel B. Taylor, nephew of the Presi dent, is dead.

Internal Revenue receipts to-day, $391,- 000; for the week, $2,500,000; for the fiscal year, $04,814,000. Gen. Sherman is visiting his daughter in New York. Gen. Schofield returns to Richmond to morrow. In a drunken row between stage passen gers and the escort at Cameron Crossfng, Santa Fe road, three were killed. Franklin Pierce was serenaded a£ Con cord, N. H., Wednesday night, and said: I warn you, my friends, to note the fact that these triumphs, whatever they may be, are no party triumphs. Tbe people have risen in their majesty, with a consciousness of their power, and, disregarding party lines and party aspirations, have been silently considering what belongs to them, their children, and their country*. I think the great battle has been fought and won. If the results are significant in nothing else, they are in this, that the white race—our race, the German. Italian, French, Irish, Scotch and Anglo-Saxon people—are still to be the controlling power on this Conti nent. Tbe Superior Court of New York on ap peal has decided the Gardner will case in favor of Mrs. Tyler. The Republican majority in Iowa is estimated at 20,000. Among a number of articles forwarded to the dead letter office from the army at Columbia, Newberuand Goldsboro, was an oil painting representing two children feeding a horse.

Dr. J Craig, of Mobile, Ala-, writes to the Round TaMe, scouting the idea of identifying Sir Philip Francis with the Nominis Umbra. I >r. C. says “the Franciscans have not an inch of solid ground to stand upon in that controversy,” and maintains the Lyttletoni m» theory as convincingly established. On the other hand, we see it announced that the memoirs of Sir Philip Francis are i}*out to be published by Mr. Herman Me- rivale—of tlie poet of that name and brother of the historian of the Roman Em pire—and that Mr. Thurlow Weed, who has examined the materials, declares that this work will conclusively establish the identity of Junius and the qarrelsome bar onet. The Junius letters are chiefly remarka ble for the successful concealment of the name of their author. They were publish ed in a London newspaper iiefore the American Revolution; have since had a ]ar‘*e run in book form; the Havana of both continents have puzzled their learned heads to identify their author; but his name b as much a mystery to-day as in the morning when the first letter was pub lished, nearly a century ago. i —■ e >»*»" f3f' Wt; are sorry to see Dr. Miller, of Fulton, ani Judge Irwin, of Cobb count}*, i -tich bail company.— Opposition paper.

Kef u'dienn candidate for Maj\°J Literary Notes.—Prof. James Wood Davidson, of Columbia, S. C., is preparing a series of critiques on living Southern writers, which will be published in the Southern Home Journal, Baltimore. Prof. Davidson expects to bring these articles out in book form in the Spring. The first of his series is on Jas. R. Randall, and is a well written paper. Dr. J. Parish Stelle, of Caseyville, Ky., is preparing a similar series of articles. Seven of his have appeared in the Waverly Maga zine, Boston, and others will follow as ra pidly as material can be collected. Mr. Stelle finds some difficulty in getting at a sufficiency of correct data, and would be very glad if the friends of Southern writ ers would give him such facts as they may possess. James Maurice Thompson, one of the most promising of the literati of Georgia, is at present quite ill. Mr. Thompson is one of the most vigorous of our young writers, and is exceedingly versatile and pungent as a critic. tion, upon taking an oatii to support the hearted Christian gentleman, and of ac- J Constitution, hut was rejected.

Is this a case for the “Code ?” It would be in some of the Spanish Provinces, and among certain classes in Mississippi and Louisiana. preaching social equality to the colored man, it would be well to cast a veil over the past. Fair Play. Can’t Control the Mind.—England has effectually suppressed Fenian out breaks hut it sees itself unable to repress Fenian sympathies. The Fenian Kelly having died while in prison, a great de monstration of sympathy for the deceased was made on Monday at his funeral. The English begin to feel considerably seared at the probable movements of the Fenians. Reckless.—The Georgia correspondent of tiie New York Times in a recent letter from Atlanta says “the kind of men that stand the best chance of goingto the Geor gia Convention, are those who in ordinary times would not stand the remotest chance of being elected to any office.” The ticket at the head of our colums for this (35th) District, gives the lie to this statement.

When arrested, he and his friends thought of appealing to the American Minister of Florence for obtaining his release as being an American. The Minister, it seems, could not view the subject all through in this light, but lie asked tiie Government to show clemency to the distinguished pris oner. Who Did the Fighting?—The New York Herald says that “there is not a sin gle great soldier of the country—there never was a corps commander in the Army of the Potomac—who was not a Democrat before the war.” So much for Copperhead- Court for a writ of mandamus to compel the registering officers to register his name. In case the court refuses to grant the writ, he will appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States, and thus test the validity of the oath required by the Reconstruction act and demonstrate what virtue there Is in the pardon accorded by the President to the excluded class. The United States Deputy Marshal seiz ed on the British bark Mulhall, of No va Scotia, at City Point to-day, to satisfy a claim of the mate. The Captain resisted tiie seizure and was very insolent and threatened the country with English ven geance, and telegraphed for advice to the British Consuls at Norfolk, New York and Richmond, but was finally pacified and yielded to the law. Gen. O. Brown, Chief of theiBurcau, has received a letter irom Norfolk, explaining the troubles on the Taylor farm. The ne groes have been allowed to remain there up to this time unmolested. Taylor was j pardoned more than a year ago. ne ha I been endeavoring to get them off, but they !*.«’ persistently refused to leave. A few ru-e, a party went out from Nor- rnpanied by an agent of the Bu- ;.<*rsuade them to leave, offering • <‘;n Gen. Wise’s farm, which is still :i the bands of the government. They assembled together and through their spokesman refused all offers of a con pro mise, declaring that the President had no right to pardon Taylor and that they would remain on tbe farm and defend what they considered their property against all comers. Steps will be taken to eject them by civil process. There has been no outbreak as yet. and no armed demonstra tion was made. The conference was a peacable and a bloodless one, but is feared that trouble will grow out of it and that blood may be shed before the squatters will yield their sovereignty. The board of directors of the Chamber of Uommerr.-e held thier first meeting this Gen. Marion’s Sword.—We were shown, a few days ago, by Philodore S.

Meade, who again presen ted it to the gentleman in whose possession it now is. The blade is an exceedingly fine one. The mottoes on the blade are charac teristic of olden chivalry, expressing on one side. “No me saques sin razoinj (“Nev er draw me without cause,”) and on the other. “No me embaines sin honor,” (“Never sheath me without honor.”) Gen. Marion's name is rudely carved on the handle, hear ing date 1773. It is probable that the sword will find its way back to Georgia.—Phila delphia Sunday Mercury. ISTRev.
