I now come to inqure why
this its legislation is needed
It is Itecause
this Congress, in its work of restoring to i
their places the States iu rebellion, au
thorized the President to assign the officers
of the Army to the duties prescribed in
the-law: and the President has made
such of that authority as to; obstruct arid
delay the restoration of thcjse States.
Without violating the letter of the law
lie has been able, in a great measure, to
hinder the fall aud efficient execution of
the law. His acts and those of his advis
ers are, to-day, the chief obstacles to the
prompt restoration of rebel States, and
Congress proposes to remove those ob
stacles by transferring the power to the
hands tf one who has shown his loyalty
to the country, aud his willinguess to
obey the laws of the Uniou.
Mr. Speaker, I will not repeat the
long catalogue of obstructions which he
has thrown in the way by virtue of the
power eouferred upon liini iu the recon
struction law of lrib'7, but I will allude to
one example, where he has found in a
Major-Generai. of the Army a facile
instrument with which more effectually to
obstruct the work of reconstruction. This
case is all the more painful because si n
otherwise meritorious officer, who bears
honorable scars, earned iu battle for the
Union, has been made a party to the poll
cal : madness which has so long marked
the conduct of the President. This Gen
eral was sent into the district of Louisi
ana and Texas with a law of Congress in
his hand, a law. that commands him! to

The cool impudence of the Radical party
in claiming to be patriotic, national and
cpiwvative, is wonderful indeed when wc
tak a calm , survey of. its past record. It
was born in the throes of revolution, blood
and death. Its patriotism consisted in di
viding our country, in raarring and desolat
ing the most prosperous anjl happy section,
and in the attempt to impoverish and en
slave its citkeuf. Its nationality mear seen
tralization, dcspotism the elimination of
gfcjtLl UneSi and the denial to the people th
le
riglut of local self government. Its conser-
vatisni is found in ita extreme measures,
8Uch th suspension f the great writ of
habefti corpus in times of profound peace; in
the passage of the inSHmous Enforcement
ActJ the establishmen of the negro Beureau,
and ! the disfranchisement of thousands of
tne st nien i (he land for partisan and
political arsranuizement. it disrupted tne
j i
union under the pretense of saving it. It
overthrew our State governments, reduced
them to provinces and denied the people
their1 soverign right to chose their rulers.
It. placed over ie Southern States bayonet
governments, filled our Legislative Halls
with thieves and camp followers, interlopers
and 'carpet-baggers who issued bond3 and

, fi , ,.
olation, poverty and distress or
, ' f .ua-a
leaving des-
on every hand.
The men and the party that did these things
are asking the people to give them power
aairi. Look at it !
They usurped control
of our State and local affairs by the basest
and most infamous means, i They held con
trol of the Legislative department of North
Carolina for nearly three years, and in that
timj run our state debt up.from fifteen to
near fortv minions of dollars. This lame
increase of debt they stole and squandered,
t,ie people have to foot the bill. They
inaugurated an era of terror, of blood-shed
and anarchy; business was paralized and
prosperity impossible. The people through
their organization, the Democratic party,
rostt up in their might and hurled them from
power. Harmony and peace were gradual
ly restored, the people have begun to pros
perl and business to revive; and sothepco
plej will continue to prosper, and law and
order prevail, if the Demoeratic party is
kept solid and its principles upheld if the
Dctnocratic masses remain true to themsel
ves and to their party organization. But, if
thej people become indifferent, and allow
tho infamous Radical party to slip into pow
er again, we may ex pect a return of the days
of i thievery, mis-government, lawlessness
and 'poverty. The party and the men who
have robbed and oppressod us once wiil rob
and oppress us again, j We would have been
slaves to-day, but for the Democratic party;
wcj will deserve to become slaves should we
ever allow that party's banner to trail in the
dust, or the Radical party to again slip in
to power because of our indifference or lack
of proper organization. . It should be the
highest duty of every democratic citizen to
strengthen his party organization as it is
the bulwark of our political safety, and
domestic peace and happiness. The Demo
cratic party has graduallj recovered from
the foul clutches of voracious Radicalism in
our county. State and general governments.
There is one citadel yet to be taken--the
Presidentcy. a"nd if we are true to ourselves,
it Will surrender on the 4th of March next.
Is there not every incentive for us to remain
true;? ' Every consideration worthy of the
respect and enjoyment of a free people de
mands that we should be vigillant and ac
tive and true. Wc cannot afford to allow
Radicalism to be installed in power again.

A MONUMENT OF CORRUPTION.
Fatal Election Itiot.
A, Colored Democrat Killed by the
Greenback Candidate for Sheriff-
The Latter Killed in Return.
j Mesiphis, Tenn., August 22.
From passengers who arrived this
morning the following particulars
hive been gained of the riot which
occurred yesterday at Coffeeville,
Miss., the scat of Yallabusha county,
sixteen miles north of Grenada, on
the St. Louis, Chicago and New Or
leans railroad. A special election is
to be held next Tuesday, to fill a
vacancy in tne sncriit s oince over
which there was a contest at the last
general election. The democrats and
greenbackers have each a ticket in the
field. Both parties held a ratification
meeting at Coffeeville on Saturday.
Each raised a pole. The democrats
had a brass band from Grenada, and
after the pole-raising marched through
the streets. While passing a corner
a difficulty occurred between a negro
named Spearman, who was in the
democratic procession, and A. V.
Pearson, greenback candidate for slier
iff. which resulted in Pearson shoot-
ing Spearman, killing him instantly
This was the signal for a general
melee, and a volley of shots were
opened on Ptarson, who received
three wounds, from the effects of
which -he died last night. Two of
Pearson's friends, Kelly and Reddick,
were wounded. For a time a perfect
pandemonium reigned, the excitement
running so high that the Walthal
Grays, a military company of Grena
daj Miss., where telegraphed for, but
the order was subsequently counter
manded. Last night Coffeeville was
quiet.

Justifiable Homicide. Atlanta, Aug.
25. On Wednesday, near Chochrane, Ga.,
four young white men disguised themselves
and went to a negro cabin, broke down the
door and commenced firing into it. The
occupant, John Brown, seized his double

shot, and fired both barrels, killing two
brothers, named Dykes. The tops of their
heads were blown off. The negro made his
escape. The coroner's jury returned a ver
