BILL ARPS LETTER.
HE HAS HIS MEMORY STIRRED UP BY
GEXEKAt JACKSON'S SI'KECU.
Tlic Norlh Itespoiiiblo for Slavery and Only
Found Fault AVith the South When the
Trade Became Unprofitable for them.
General Henry R. Jackson's recent
address deli ered at Alanta before the
Young Men's Library Association
has impressed me more than any
speech or writing made in the Sonth
since the war. I did not hear it, but
I have read it and pondered it and
read it again. It has a historical
value that exceeds anything that has
been said or written upon the subject
of slavery and the slave trade. It is
safe to say that no other man could
have delivered it, for there is no
living man so familiar with the facts
and whose peculiar business it was to
become familiar with them. Let me
say farther, that as an argument it is
exhaustive and unanswerable. Noth
ing more need be said. As a literay
and scholarly effort it is a master
piece of cultured thought and beauty
of expression. The truth is, I was
charmed and comforted, and my
thanks go out to the noble man who
having passed his allotted age, was
unwilling to leave his people without
putting on record that defense of their
fathers that truth and honor required.
Now, let him depart in peace. Young
men )of Georgia and of the South,
have you read this address? Have
you got time and inclination to read
it ? Do you wish to know the truth
of history ? Do you wish to cherish
your Southern pride and have estab
lished the good name and honor of
your ancestors? Had I been a
member of that Young Men's Library
Association I would have moved the
publication of a hundred thousand
copies and sent them all over the
land North and South and some
across the waters to Gladstone. Had
I the authority I would insist that
every professor history in every
Southern college, male and female
should read this to his class and teach
it and linger and dwell upon it until
the truth it contains was established
in the minds of the pupils. I would
declare it a substitute for that portion
of every history that treats of the late
war and its causes.
I have long believed much that is
stated in this address and lamented
that I could not prove it. The data
nor the records were within my reach,
but I knew enough to feel the sting of
every reproach that was cast upon
us. In spite of everything that we
veterans could do or say, Northern
literature has insinuated itself into
our borders and poisoned the minds
of many of our youths. Northern
histories have crept stealthily into our
schools and colleges, and even the
histories' of our own Southern men
have only timidly and tenderly de
fended us for fear of giving oflense.
Why should historians smother the
fact that slavery began in New Eng
land, and the slave trade was born
there and rocked in her cradle and
was nourished and cherished there
long after they had sold us their
slaves and abolished the institution ?
Why smother the facts as established
by General Jackson from the records
that New England continued in the
slave trade until 1S59 and eighty-five
vessels left New York in 1859 and
1S60 for the African coast and carried
to Hrazil over 30,000 slaves ? These
vessels were owned and equipped by
capitalists cf New England who had
for half a century been engaged in
this business, and who, despite and
in defiance ot Judge Story's charges
to the grand juries of his circuit,
never a man was prosecuted.
Friends, countrymen, read what
Judge Story, the great jurist, said in
that charge about the horrors of the
middle passage and your blood will
curdle in the veins. Eugene Sue nor
Victor Hugo ever depicted such hor
rible scenes horrible enough as
Milton says, to "create a soul be
neath the ribs of death." From 1S07
down to i860 New England vessels,
manned by New England sailors, car
ried on this trade, and as Judge
Story's soa savs, "many fortunes
were made with the blood money ol
the cargoes that survived the awful
horrors of the middle passage." And
they never stopped it until the war
began in 1S61. Perhaps they are at
it ye t if there is any market for the
poor wretches. Certain it is that
New England is every year doubling
the quantity of rum that ships to Afri
ca to sell to the natives.
Now, in contrast to all this there
never was but one vessel in all those
years that was evenly partly owned
or controlled by a lan from the
South only one, the little yacht
called the Wanderer and she was
built, manned and equipped in a
Northern port. This vessel brought
her little cargo of black humanity to
a Southern coast, and immediately
her officers were pursued and arrest
ed and imprisoned at the instance of
Southern men a proceeding that
would have never been instituted in
in New England had the offenders
and the offense been there instead of
No wonder that the God-like
Webster was disgusted with the
greed and the hate and the preju
dices of his countrymen. No wonder
he said when they threatened him :
"A man cannot suffer too much or
fall too soon if he suffer or fall in
support of the liberties and the con
stitution ol his country."
No wonder that Franklin Pierce
stood by him and said : "Sir, if your
party overthrows you for this we
will take you up and lift you so high
that your head will touch the stars."
No wonder that when Nathaniel
H-iu-thnrnp was asked il he was in
favor of the war, he replied: "I
suppose so, but I don't see what we
have to fight about." And in 1863,
.when he took a manuscript of a book
to his publisher with a dedication to
his friend Franklin Pierce, the pub
lisher advised him to leave it out,
because Pierce was opposed to the
war. Then Hawthorne replied : "It
shall go in. I will galdly sacrifice a
few thousand dollars rather than re
tain the good will of such a herd of
dolts and mean-spirited scoundrels."
No wonder that Emerson insisted
on tendering to the South $2,000,
000,000 in payment for the slaves, as
an act of juctice and as a substitute
lor war. -
Ah ! we had friends up there
noble men, but they could not stem
the tide. They were helpless. The
devil was running the machine.
The slave trade might go on, and the
money be paid for the cargoes, but
slavery was a sin against high heaven.
They brothered the men who brought
them, but damned the men who
bought them. But Brazil was their
market after 1840. Maryland and
Virginia ceased to buy. The South
had enough. The natural increase
supplied her plantations and a reac
tion of public sentiment set in. The
example of Jefferson and Randolph
in freeing their slaves was followed
by hundreds. The colonization so
ciety shipped thousands of manumit
ted slaves to Libreria ; but they did
not go willingly and they perished
soon alter they got there. It was a
cruel exile into the jaws of death.
My father as executor of Major
Water's will sent thirty-seven of his
slaves to Savannah, from whence the
colonization society took them to
Liberia in 1846. They were well
provided with clothing and given
$100 apiece in gold. Thirty of them
died within two years and the other
seven escaped by strategy and came
back to Georgia to live in slavery
with their old master's children. In
i860 tree negroes were common all
over Virginia. In 1861 we found at
Winchester, while camping there,
more freed-men than slaves. The
Old Dominion was flecked with them
and the sentiment was fast working
Southward, and but for the threats
and bulldozing of the abolition party,
Southern slavery would have passed
from us by gradual emancipation as
advocated by Henry Clay and Ber
rien and Joseph Henry Lumpkin.
The truth is that the blood of the
million who fell in the war is upon
the abolition party and its followers
the higher law saints who broke
he compact and were the first to set
aside the constitution and the laws
and the decisions of the higher courts
in the government. The fanatical,
malicious and "mean-spirited scoun
drels," as Hawthorne calls them, are
up there yet exercising themselves
in that peculiar religion, which is to
abuse the South and preach temper
ance and ship rum to Africa. We
are reviving no animosities against
the Northern soldiers who fought to
preserve the union, for they had
patriotic motives and followed the
lead of General Grant, who owned
slaves in Missouri and lived ofi of
their hire up to 1S63. He has been
sainted. Fortune or fate cast him on
that side. The dice fell that way.
His battle cry was the "union," but
New England denounced the union
as a league with hell and a covenant
with the devil, and the battle cry was
"Free the negroes and turn them
loose to kill, and to burn and de
stroy." What a disappointment
awaited their malicious desires and
expectations not a colored hand was
raised, not a firebrand was lighted,
but faithful, loving and true most oi
them stood by their old masters, and
their wives and their children, until
freedom was forced upon them.
Verily, as General Jackson says, a
monument should be erected to their
loyalty that should reach the stars.
And now, Mr. Editor, I think I will
feel better. Sometimes the pent-up
feelings must be ventilated, indigna
tion must explode, or it will fester
and corrode in our vitals and blood
poison our better nature. Yes, I
think I will feel better for a good while.
I will cultivate peace and harmony
with all who love it. There are some
signs up North that are comforting.
A Northern man who fought on the
other side sends money to mark a
soldier's grave, and an Illinois man
writes me that General John M. Pal
mer is not even a member of the
Grand Army of the Republic. Nobody
seems to know the John Palmer who
raised all that rumpus about the flag.
A Northern lady writes a nice letter
about her father, who was killed at
Chickamauga in 1863. He fell within
the Confederate lines, and his sword
and watch were taken. He was col
onel of the Thirty-eighth regiment
Illinois infantry, and his name was
David Harvie Gilmer, of Pittsfield,

that sword, and if any Confederate

to act the gentleman and apologize

THE REASONS WHY DEMOCRATIC
SUPREMACY IS ESSENTIAL.

Strong Address Deniotr.tlie Sucre; i o
15e Obtained by Harmony and ."l;i((i:tl
At a recent conference of. the Ex
ecutive Committee of the Democratic
! party which was attended by many
j of the leading citizens from differ-
ent sections of the State, and in
1 1 1
wnicn our present political condition
as a party, was discussed in a spirit
of forbearance and conciliation, it was
deemed wise to issue an address to
friends and adherents of the party
urging i hat the same spirit shall enter
into and control all our discussions
and actions preparatory to and dur
ing the great struggle of 1S92.
At the conference the uncL-rsigned
were selected to prepare and issue
i the address, and we were especially
enjoined to voice, as nearly as pos
sible, the spirit of harmony and unity
and loyalty to the Democratic party
which characterized the conterence.
It must be apparent to any
thoughtful observer that there is a
general depression in agriculture and
a consequent feeling of dissatisfaction
and unrest among those engaged in
that pursuit, though the tillers of the
soil are not the oniy ones who are
suffering from this general depres
sion. This want ol prosperity among
the farmers has seriously atiected the
great mass of those engaged in other
vocations ; in fact but few h ive
escaped its baletul influence. 1 lien
we are common sutk rers trom a com
mon cause. If this be true, can there
be any reason why we should not
work together to remove this cause
and drive from power its author ?
The real author ol the grievances
of which the people so justly complain,
is the Republican party, which has
administered the Federal govern
ment lor the benefit of favored clashes
and against the interest of the toil
ing masses of the American people.
And we appeal to our fellow citizens
of all vocations to stand shoulder to
shoulder in the fight we make against
this great adversary.
In the dark days following 1S65
and 1869, we stood together against
the same enemy in State affairs, and
we conquered. The lessons then
learned should not be forgotten, ah-!
we expect chem to bear fruit in i
if we do not mistake the temper and
patriotism of our people.
Let us not be guilty of the folly of
wasting our strength and dividing
our forces in uncompromising, acri
monious contentions among our
selves as to the best means of accom
plishing a deliverance from the evils
which now environ us and from the
burdens which now we-gh us down.
Among these evils and burdens v. e
will mention two about which it
seems to us we can all agree and
from which we cannot hope to be de
livered till we overthrow the party
which created them. The first of
these is the inadequate supply of
money in the country and the want
of a better system for its distribu
tion, so that it may be procurable
more easilyar.dat reasonable rates
of interest; and the other is the un
just and burdensome system of
Tariff Taxation. The former we re
gard as the chief cause of stagnation
in business, and the latter a power'ul
ally in robbing agriculture and labor
of just rewards. That the supply of
currency is wholly insufficient lor the
business transactions of country needs
no argument to prove. It is the ex
perience not only of the fanners but
of most men engaged in other busi
ness and professional pursuits. Now,
add to this inadaquacy of money sup
ply and its improper distribution, the
unequal and unnecessary burdens of
tarit't taxation, whose cruel exactions
have now realized the wildest dreams
of the most exorbitant monopolist,
and we find a suifieier.t cause for the
unrest and disquiet existing among
our people. We affirm that those
evils are the direct offspring of Re
publican legislation. Other causes
of greater or less weight may be as
signed for the present depression in
agriculture and other pursuits ; but
they too, so far as their origin can be
traced to legislation, must be charged
to the same Republican party ; for
there has not been an hour in the last
twenty-five years when that party
did not control one branch or other
of Congress or the Executive and
thus hold an effectual check at ail
times upon the power of the Demo
cratic party to give the people reliel
and redress by repealing vicious leg
islation and enacting remedial meas
ures ; so that it cannot in fairness be
said that the Democratic party is re
sponsible for failing to do these.
things. In our opinion the shortest
practical road to the redress of the
wrongs and cviLs which oppress the
country is through the complete
triumph of the Democratic party,
which is the party of t he people,
whose fundamental principles are in
harmony with their interest.
This committee, composed often
Democrats, five of whom belong to
the Alliance and five of whom do not,
but all speaking the sentiments of the
Democratic party, sympathise with
and unite in the strenuous demands
of the people, uttered through the
Farmers' Alliance, the various indus
tral organizations, and otherwise' lor
such thorough reform in the finan
cial system as will give to our people
a sound currency in sufficient abun
dance and properly distributed, and
relief from the burdens of tarifi taxa
tions. As to the particular methods atid

by all true Democrats, are to be ac
complished, it is but natural that
there should be honest differences of
opinion. One man may assign one
cause for the general stagnation in
business and suggest a remedy which
he believes to be a sovereign remedy.
Another man equally intelligent and
honest may differ with him as to the
real cause or the proper remedy to
be applied. It is manifestly unjust
to charge either of of these men with
dishonesty or enmity to reform where
reform is needed. Our friends must
learn to discuss ail questions con
cerning these matters in a spirit of
fairness, good will and mutual confi
dence and esteem, within the party
lines, and when the time for action
comes unite upon such men and such
measures as seem most likely to
lead us to victory and to secure lor
the people such wise and needful re
form in our national legislation
as shall have respect to the good of
the whole people and shall not be
for the benefit and enrichment of the
few. If we will remain united and
detci mined, we may dislodge the
Republican party from power and in
time work out these needful reforms,
but if we divide up among ourselves
it can but result in continuing this
party in power and thus perpetuating
the evils of which we now justly
The unity of the Democratic party
in the whole country is essential also
to prevent the enactment of the
Force Bill which would forever de
stroy the freedom of election, per
petuate the rule of the Republican
par'y and its vicious measures, which
have so oppressed the people, and
ruined especially the South. We have
reason to apprehend that this dan
gerous bill, which we all had hoped
was dead, will be revived again and
enacted into a law if, by our divisions,
the Republican party should obtain
once more full control of the law
making power of the Federal Gov
ernment. Then too, we have so
much at stake at home in North
From 1 87 1 to 1891 our State Leg
islation has been wise and for the
best interest of our people. From
1 S 76 to 1S91 these wise laws have
been wisely administered and during
all tnat period we have had a clean,
pure, progressive administration of
our home affairs : and we do not
hesitate to say that the State govern
mer.t given us by the Democratic
r. o tv is as near perfect as human
institutions can well be made. It
would be madness in us to divide up
among ourselves and by this division
turn our State government over to
the party of 1868 and 1869; and we
think to sow the seeds of discord and
promote division in the ranks of the
Democrats of North Carolina from
whatever motive, would imperil the
best interest of the State and should
be avoided by all true men.
In view of these facts, and of the
far-reaching consequences of the
great struggle of 1S62, we urge upon
Democrats in every section of the
State and of every shade of opinion to
lav aside all feelings of prejudice and
distrust, and to study and discuss
every proposition made for reform
with an earnest desire to secure the
Speaking by authority of the State

our people to refrain from fault find

ation in whatever quarter, exhort all
to practice a prudent and rational
forbearance, and commend to you
the supreme virtue of charity. Let
us concede to all, as we claim for all,
the inalienable right of opinion.
The monopolists and their foster
fuller, the Republican party, will not
loosen the fetters with which they
have bound us without a desperate
struggle, and we cannot please them
belter than to waste our energies in
lighting each other. Let us so de
mean ourselves now that we may be
