A Call for a Convention of the

structed States. ; . ..
For the purpose ot taking Into
consideration the condition of af
fairs in the reconstructed States, and
to issue an address to the people of
the nation, conuunios? .a true state
ment rOl .&eam e, Jlepublicans of
these states are requested to sena
delegates to a convention to beheld
at Chattanooga, Tenn., October 13,
1874 ' ' ; ' .
Each of said Slates may send as
many delegates as shall be deemed
advisable, and such delegation will
be entitled to the number of votes
to which their States respectively
are entitled In the electoral college.
All Republicans, whether of these
or other States, who still earnestly
seek to maintain the principles on
which the Union was defended, and
to Inaugurate which in the South
reconstruction was begun, and who
feel an interest In the preservation
of law, order, and the rights of citi
zenship, are invited to attend this
consultation. All should come pos
sessed of the facts as to the true con
dition in their respective locali titles
so that an authoritative statement
may be made to the country.
The Republicans of the South,
equally with the crood citizens of
other localities, demand peace and
security that prosperity may for-
low. Why these are not enjoyed by
them snoum be made manifest by
this Convention. The best men
and minds of each State should be
summoned to this council. If there
are those anywhere who doubt as
to the purposes or capacity of South
ern Republicans, or who believe the
oppressions under which they are
laboring have been magnified, let
them come and see and hear for

We publish in this issue the call
for a convention of Southern Bepub
licans to be held at Chattanooga,
Tennessee, on the 13th of October.
It is signed by Senators, members

and some other prominent mem- blows in vindication of law and or
bers of the Republican party from jer over anarchy and confusion.
the States of Alabama, Mississippi,
, tit i
rkansas, Texas, West Virginia,
Kentucky, Georgia. Louisiana and
The main object of the assemblage
is to take into consideration the
present condition of affairs In the
reconstructed States of the Union,
and to issue an address to the peo
ple of the country, setting forth in
an unprejudiced manner a true
statement of our condition as a par
ty and a people.
We notice that no suggestion is
made in the call as to the proper
authority in any of the States to
appoint delegates to the proposed
council ; but that the invitation is
tendered to tho best men of tho
party. We do not think that any
convention of self-constituted dele
Katcs could arrive at anything like
a uniform lino of policy. There
must be some power from which to
derive their authority: if not. it
would be as well to call
ft regular I
mass meeting at once, of all Repub
licans who might choose to attend,
and In that case conflicting views
and statements "would rather tend
to mystify than to enlighten.
We hope in tho absence of any
suggested 1 mode of appointment,
that tho Stale Executive Commit
tee be at once called and that some

the party In North Carolina. We
believe that if men well acquainted
with the condition of aflairs in their
respective States and who are ready I
and willing to look rather to the
good of tho whole party than' to
mere local and individual interests
shall constitute the proposed Con
vention, we can nredlct ur!i lln
of policy as will tend , to place a

constructed States, under the con. I

gress and prosperity,
now enjoyed I
by the most prosperous
wealths of the Union. On the con
trary. If criminations and recrlmln
atlons are indulged in ; if minor sec-
tional differences are not forgotten. I
in -i word, if we show no spirit to
work in unison with the broad prin-
ciples of the party, then we fear
that the eventful year of 1876 will
find us only the remnant of a once
powerful organization, prostrate at
the feet of modern KtrKlux De
mocracy, another term only for all
the ills of anarch v and misrule

seems to be the settled policy of these
men to adhere to their maxim of

From the downfall of the Confede

not been wanting In the ranks of
the Democratic party of the South,
discontented and desperate men,
who have nursed a secret hatred to
the Government of the United
States, and who have awaited some
pretext, however frivolous, to again
stir up strife aud fan the flames of
civil.discord. For nine years they

In any State, and laws enacted by

As our readers are aware, the matter
of the disputed Judgeship will come

fact that on that day the contest for

worthy of the knowledge of all, that
the absence of these products leaves
a state without any foundation as to

people devote more acreage to the
prime products of the land ? Why
will they not plant wheat, corn,

pastures for their stock, and cease
to be hewers of wood and drawers

THE ALDINE, while issued with all
the regularity, lias none of the tem
porary or timely interest characteristic
of ordinary periodicals. It is an ele
gant miscellany ol pure, light and grace
ful literature; and a collection of pic
tures, the rarest specimens of artistic
kiH? in black and white. Although
each succeeding number affords a fresh
pleasure to its friends the real value
and beauty of Ttjt Aldine will be most
appreciated after it has .been bound up
at the close of the year. While other
publications may claim superior cheap
ness; as compared with, rivals of a sim
ilarclass, The Aldine is a unique and
original conception alone and unap-
proached absolutely , without compe
aUonin price or character. The pps
rlf a vnlnme cannot du-
plicate the quanUty of fine paper ana
engravings in auy oiucr
hor ext -vnliimea for ten times its costs ;
and then, there are the chromo. betides

The illustrations of ,The A Wine have
a world-wide reputation, and iu
ttio rt centres of Europe it is an ad-
mitivt fact that its woodcuts are exam
pies of the , highest perfection ever at
aained. The common prejudice in favor
of "steel plates," is rapidly yieldinfr to
a more educated and discriminating
taste which recognizes the advantages
of superior artistic quality with greater
facility of production. The wood, cuts
of The Aldine possess all the delicacy
on'rf elaborate finish of the ; most costly
ofr r.iatfi. while the v afford a better
of the artist's original.
To fully realize the wonderf j1 work
which The Aldine is doing for the cause
of i art culture in America, it is only
riAftPiisarv to consider the cost to the
nponle of anv other decent representa
tions of the productions of great pain
ters. . ' ' t '
r Iii addition to designs by the mem
bers of the National Academy, and
other noted American artists, The Al
dine will reproduce examples or tne
best ' foreign masters, selected with a
view to the highest artistic success and
greatest general interest SThus the
subscriber to The Aldine Will, at
trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the
pleasures and refining influences of
The quarterly tinted plates for 1874
will be by Thos. Moran and J. D.
The Christmas issue for 1874 will con
tain special designs appropriate to the
season, by our best artists, and will

cessors. . Premium for 1874.
Every subscriber to The Aldine tor
the year 1874 will receive a pair of
chromos. The original pictures were
painted in oil for the publishers of The
Aldine, by Thomas Moran, whose great
Colorado picture was purcnasea by
Congress for ten thousand dollars. The
subjects were chosen to represent "The
East" and "The West." One is a view
in The White Mountains, New Hamp
shire : the other gives The Cliffs of
Green River, Wyoming Territory.
The difference in the nature of: the
scenes themselves is a pleasing contrast
and affords a good display of the artist's
scope and coloring. Tne enromos are
each worked from thirty distinct plates,
and are in size (I2xlb; and appearance
exact fac-similes of the originals. The
prevention of a worthy example of
America's greatest landscape painter to
the subscribers or The Aldine was a
bold but peculiarly happy idea, and its
successful realization is attested by the
following' testimonial, over the signa
ture of Mr. Moran mmseii. - i - .

These chromos . are in every sense
American. They are by an original
American process, with material o
American manufacture, irom designs
of American scenery by an American
painter, and presented to subscribers to
the first successful American Art jbnr
pal. If no better .because of all this,
they will certainly possess an interest
no foreign, production can inspire, and
neither are they any the worse if by
reason : of peculiar facilities of produc
tion they cost the publishers only a
trifle, while equal in every respect to
other chromos that are sold singly for
double the subscription price of The
Aldine. Persons! of taste will prize
these Pictures for themselves not for
the price they did or did not cost, and
will appreciate the enterprise that ren
