ANOTHER FROM MIKE.
I'ays Ills Kespects to the "West Vlr-
glulan" of the Hep. Brigade.
Dear Uncle Pat: It was certain
ly a very great calamity to that
West Virgma "carpet bag" editor,
w ben the exposure ot my last let
ter so enraged him as to make him
boil over with wrath and hatred,
aud caused him, a "clammy reptile
in (almost) human form," to think
that 1 was so much like him &s to
be spoken of as such a thing. But
it is very amusiiig to see him have
fits. If he should pr ve to be as
great as he pretends it will be
necessary for him not to notice per
sons, whom he considers worthy
only "to be looked upon with con
tempt." It is ridiculous to See the
"king of beasts" going into Hts of
rage over the actiois of a clinmiy
reptile... I do not like to criticise
the works of cieaiion, but if that
carpet-bag editor has as much brains
as he feigns to have I am um.hlo to
understand why a dozyn avcage
men were not made ana supplied
with brains -from the amount, he
claims to have in the hollow Kjih.'re

Since the close of the Civil W;r,
a great many men have couie 1'rnm
the North to the South. Those
who took up business pursuits have
done a great deal to help deelop
the South, and the southern peo
ple are always glad to see that
class of northern people coming into
our midst. But there was a class
ofyaukeeswbo commenced coming
south iust alter the close ot the
Civil War whose business was to
oin hands with the ignorant neg.
ots who had just received their
reedom and a few white men who
cared for nothing except to get oflice
and plunder the southern states.
This class of yankees was a band of
men known in history as "carpet
baggers, and the white men who
oi ued them were called "seal la
wages. f rom these two classes or
men the South .has suffered more
njury than from all other sources
combined. JNo man can point out
a single carpet-bagger or scallawag
who was ever true to the govern
ment of the southern Btates. In
most cases, thev were men who had
sought political promotion in their
former states and counties, ami,
v.-ing h jeered bv people who knew
them, thev came south to make
heavier the burdens ot the southern
people. The characteristics oi tne
arnet baggers have not changed
since reconstruction uavs. i mere

It matters very little what i
carpet-bag editor thinks of t'.'e mor-
ls ot Alike uoogansnieid or any
other southern man. His opinion
counts for little, and if he should
appeu to think that Mike is "in
league with the angeis or perdition
t makes no difference, tor no sane
uiuu will beli've that Mike Dougan-
hield will ever stoop so low as to
be in league with a West Virginia
carpet-nag editor. jsenner uoes

he threatens to make, for Mike is
able to defend him Belf, and he
cares not a cent how many people

right along, and we'll "get into the

If I were the author of any -sick
ly verse" I should not object to hav-
mr it criticised by a man wno is
able to distinguish verse from prose
or measure in poetry trom the gallon-pot
in a grocer's store, but it is
little irritating to have a carpet
bag editor, who has been ridiculed
by other editors for his ridiculous
pelling, to "boh up as a critic or
poetry. The types in a newspaper
sometimes make it appear that a
learned man misspells, but when a
carpet-bag editor continually spells
the word "chivalrous, "s-n-i-Y-a-i-r-o-u-B,"
people know that he can't
spell, and that be should learn to
pell oeiore taaiBg up me otuuj ui

would be better equipped fcr.his1

mine. If this county should ever,
under Democratic administration,
get down to 27 cents in the treasury
it will not then be as bad as it was
while the old carpet-bagger's party
was in power in this county or iu
the state. If he can prove that his
paper is in as solid tiuancial condi-tion-or
