For the purpose of taking Into consideration the condition of af fairs in the reconstructed States, and to issue an address to the people of the nation, containing a true state ment of the fiame. HeDublicans of these Stated are rnauested to send delegates to a convention to be held anaiianooga, nn., uciu 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 fflInWto'Mfhb consultation. All should come pos- the disastrous aeieac mat awaus sessed of the facts as to the true con- him at the hands of the great Re dltion in their respective localitities publican party in Missouri ; a defeat so that an authoritative statement may be made to the country. The Republicans of the South, equally with the good citizens of other localities, demand peace and security that prosperity may fol low. Why these are not enjoyed by them should 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 oppresslons under which they are muuriug uuvo wxu uiagmneu, lei them come and see and hear for themselves.

Senator, La. Carl Schurz and tho Colored Vote. This gentleman made a speech in I Missouri a few days ago, in which he well sustained the reputation we have for some time accorded him as one of tho most accomplished dem agogues of the country. Mr. Schurz is reported as saying in substance, that tho establishment of mixed schools would not be of benefit to the colored race in tho South, but that on the contrary such a system would work to their serious injury ; and that the ill effects of the plan as proposed in the civil rights bill would be mainly felt by the poorer class of the whites who were unable to educate their children at private institutions of learning. Now, we do not pretend to question the cor rectness of the Senator's position in this particular respect. Indeed, we rather agree with him that tho es tablishment of mixed schools would not work beneficial results to our colored friends in the South. We can go further and say, that we do not believe any large portion of our colored fellow-citizens ever desired or expected the incorporation of any such feature, but would rather have preferred that their offspring should receive instruction in schools com posed of teachers and children of their own color and class. It is natural that persons of all classes should hold social familiar inter course with those only of similar tastes and views with themselves, and the colored people form no ex ception to this rule. If there are some who desire any such affilia tions as mixed schools (and we do not doubt it), they were instigated In the first instance by Carl Schurz and his followers, wTho hoped by placing the father of the proposed measure, Horace Greeley, before the people in 1872 to win over a suffi cient number of the colored voters to give him the electoral votes of the Southern States and elect him Pres ident. It is not to bo denied that Carl Schurz and his followers were well posted as to Mr. Greeley's views upon the mixed school question at .the time his name was placed before the people for the Presidency. For many years before, he had, through the columns of the Tribune and in : various speeches, promulgated his t peculiar ideas to the people of the ' country on the relations between 'tho' two races. These ideas were couched in no doubtful language, and it Is well known that in Mr. Greeley's letterof acceptance he not only did not retract any of his for- mer notions, but even reiterated his continued devotion to tho idiosyn- crasies that attached to his past life; yet, Carl Schurz, actuated by greed for office and hatred to General Grant, urged the election of the man who entertained views radically LxlifTerent from those which he now admits are detrimental to the Inter ests of the colored man and calcu lated to impair the good feeling sub sisting between them and the whites. How can Mr. Schurz, In the face of the . position he assumed In 1872, now expect the people of Missouri or any other section to receive the speech lately made in any other I light than a catchpenny attempt of I a disappointed deraao-ue to again create discontent and discord In the Republican ranks. The people of Missouri have already been suffl- ripntlv flp,Ufleti bv thi elfish nolit- ciently deiuciea oy tmssemsn pont- ical adventurer, we hope, to ever again follow him in his puny efforts to wreak his vengeance u Don Gen- eral Grant. Like others who have tried the same game, Schurz will find that Grant's refusal to him of the Spanish Mission is only a small P0 P-sent compared to which will, we trust, consiam him win, o " I and his turbulent political followers to ignominious retirement, never again to disturb the country by their tricks and combinations. But there is another point in the crafty Senator's speech which clearly exhibits his disposition to take ad vantage of the disorder now exist ing in the South to scare the colored voters into the support of his mon- rrTCi nartv. He tells them in sub- stance that if they will only divide and cast some of their votes for the Democratic party, that they will doubtless be treated with more con sideration ; that the wholesale mur ders and whippings every day in flicted upon them are only because they choose to vote solidly for the measures and party of their choice. We did not expect Schurz to make this admission ; but it i3 true. If the colored men of the South will only cast a sufficient number of votes for the Democratic party, to insure its success, we do not doubt that they would be willing to allow them at least a little peace. It is, after all, only the loaves and fishes, they are struggling for, and theyare willing to stoop to any degree of sycophancy to accomplish their pur pose. We are happy in the belief, however, that the colored people of the South know their rights too well to be willing to barter them merely for tho poor privilege of be ing exempt from persecution and outrage. They know that the same benignGovernment which bestowed is willing ana ready to enforce their rights to a free ballot, and they are not to be intimidated by threats from either Ku Klux Democrats or so-called Liberal Re publicans. The difference. Since the days of General Jack son there has not existed in this country such a party in the true meaning of the term as a National Democratic Party. From the time that the old hero placed his admin istration on high national grounds by the issue of his celebrated proc lamation against nullification, the Democratic party has been made up of factions in every section of the Union, differing widely in prin ciple and hanging together only with a view to the distribution of the spoils of office. To use the lan guage of one of its former promi nent members, it was kept together by 4t the cohesive power of public plunder." The platforms of the party are so shaped as to be capable of one construction North and an other South. In the North the members of the party, althoucrh they take issue with Republicans on - -i many questions, still, in order to ob tain power, profess the most ardent love for the Union. In the South, in order to keep pace with public sentiment, they adopt planks in all of their platforms expressive, either directly or indirectly,of their attach ment to the lost cause. The lead ers in the North during the exist ence of a Presidential campaign, in order to catch the electoral votes of the Southern States, lustily pro claim themselves Northern men with Southern principles." Thus, by platforms and resolves they hope to unite the various sections with the view to national success. The Republican party, on the oth er hand, is purely national in all its tendencies. Its platforms are wide enough and plain enough to be com prehended and accepted by patriots of all sections. It offers nothing to the freemen of the North which it is unwilling to extend to those of the South. All of Its measures tend to the good of the country at large, and no act calculated to work par ticular injury to any section is ever wilfully perpetrated. In short, the Republican party is the only one now known to American politics under whose banner the people of all classes can rally with any degree of hope for the prosperity and con tinued welfare of the entire Nation. .

It is reported that much in dignation exists among the people of both parties in Caldwell county on account of the late legal decis- ion requiring the OommMoro, of the county to issue bonds in aid of the Chester and Lenoir Railroad. The corporation is said to be under Democratic control, and at the elec- CUJWiaiIt wiuf tion submitting the proposition of county aid, a majority of the reg istered voters failed to vote. This failure of the people to take any part in the question was the result of the belief, that it was necessary to obtain a majority of those regis tered as voters, to make the decis- ion a legal one.

That while we bow in meek submission to Him who is the only true source of light and joy, yet we do realize in the death of Bro. White, the sad fact that this Lodge has lost one of not only its oldest but most active and useful members, and the fraternity one of its purest, best and most beloved sons.

Miss Martha Knight is a good looking girl who was born in Bos ton, and very early in life mortified her parents and friends by being that childish feminine monstrosity called a "Tom Boy." She cared nothing for dolls and miniature housekeeping, like other little girls, but wanted gimlets and augers, and saws and hatchets, and nails and lumber to work with. Instead of learning to sew on doll's clothes,she mado sleds and wasrons and kites for her numbskull brothers, and she nnaily became a wonder of mechan ical genius. Her taste ran that way, ana ner menus concluded to let it TO when thev found thev could not ston it. Miss Martha Kniffht.beins? poor, went into a paper bag manu- o o factory to earn her livelihood. Of course such a girl could not stay at home and drone away her life at the family fireside. She went to work like a man, and has now be come famous and the pride of the old folks. She has won the distinc tion of being the first female inven tor that ever received a intent for a complete invention at Washington. Her invention is a machine for making paper bags. Several at tempts had previously been made in tins direction by men of mechan ical genius, and all had failed. This "Tomboy" has now done it. and made a success. Unaided she drew her plans, and she superintended the putting up of the machinery at Amnersr, juass. it works well, and her everlasting fortune' is made. F O R E.

A Representative and Cham vl ptonof American W Taste Not for sale in Book or News Stores. THE ALDINE, while issued with all the regularity, has none of the tem porary or txmely interest characteristic of ordinary periodicals. It is an ele gant miscellany ot pure, light and grace ful literature; and a collection of pic tures, the rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real Talue and beauty of The 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 ilar class, The Aldine is a unique and original conception alone and unap proached absolutely without compe tition in price or character. The pos nf a cnmnlfitfl volume cannot du- I plicae the quantity of fine paper and I fine-ravines in any other shape or num ber of volumes for ten times its costs; and then, there are the chromos. besides ! Art Department, 1874. The illustrations of The Aldine have won a world-wide reputation, and in the art centres of Europe it is an ad mitted fact that its woodcuts are exam ples of the highest perfection ever at tained. The common prejudice in favor of "steel plates," is rapidly yielding 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 and elaborate finish ol the most costly steel plate, while they afford a better rendering of the artist's original. To fully realize the wonderful work which The Aldine is doing for the cause of art culture in America, it is only necessary to consider the cost to the people of any other decent representa tions of the productions of great pain ters. In addition to designs by the mem bers of the National Academy, and other noted American artists, The Al dine will reproduce examples of the best foreign masters, selected with a view to the highest artistic success and greatest . general interest. Thus the subscriber to The Aldine will, at a trifling cost, enjoy in his own home the pleasures and refining influences of true art. The auarterlv tinted plates-for 1874 will be by Thos. Moran and J. D. Woodward. The Christmas issue for 1874 will con tain special designs appropriate to the season, by our best artists, and will surpass in attractions any of its prede cessors. Premium for 1874. Every subscriber to The Aldine for the year 1874 will receive a pair of chromos. The original pictures were painted in oil for the publishers of The Aldine.hy Thomas Moran, whose great Colorado picture was purchased 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 dontrast, and affords a good display of the artist's scope and coloring. The chromos are each worked froih thirty distinct plates, and are in size (12x16) and appearance exact fac-similes of the originals. The presention of a worthy example of America's greatest landscape painter to the subscribers of 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 himself. Newark, N. J., Sept. 20th, 18G3 Messrs. James Sutton fc Co. Gentlemen, I am delighted with the proofs in color of your chromos. They are wonderfully successful representa tions by mechanical process of the original paintings. Very respectfully, Signed,) Thos. Moras. These chromos are in every sense American. They are by an original American process, with material o American manufacture, from designs of American scenery by an American painter, and presented to subscribers to the first successful American Art uonr nal. 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 ders ther distribution possible. If any subscriber should indicate a I reference for a figure subject, the pub ishers will send Thoughts of Home," a new and beautiful chromo, ljx20 inches, representing a little Italian exile whose speaking eyes betray the long ings of his heart. Terms $5.00 per annum, in advance, with Oil Chromos free. For Fifth Cents Extra, the Chromos will be sent, mouuted, varnished, and prepaid by mail. The Aldine will, hereafter, be obtain able only by subscription. There will be reduced or club rate ; cash for sub scriptions must be sent to the publish ers direct, or handed to the local can vasser, without responsibility to the pub lishers, except in cases where the cer tificate is given, bearing the fac simile signature of James Sutton fe Co.
