CICERO W. HARRIS
Friday Morning. December 13. 1878
a sufficient ii:fi:xck.
Yesterday The S'.:.v made a
three-minutes' comment on the discussion
over the Blaine resolutions. The subject
is broad enough for a far more elaborate
consideration than can be given to it in
one newspaper ai title of th average
Blaine avows a two-fold purpose in in
troducing the resolutions-: "First, to place
"on record in definite and authentic form
"the frauds and outrages by which some of
"the recent elections were carried by the
"Democrats in the Southern States.
"Second, to find jf there be any method by
"which a repetition of these crimes against
"free ballot may be prevented." In ad
vance of the investigation that die demands
at the hands of Congress he asserts his be
lief in tlu existence of the very state of
facts of which he seeks proof! In this
eminently judicial spirit this vindicator of
the majesty of the law goes on to name the
thing which he has not yet proved was in
existence. The christening, if we may so
speak, is pro-natal. The baby more prop
erly babies unborn are named " Fraud"
and "Outrage." The world wondeis, but
let the world be stiil a moment. ' It is Mr
Blaine who speaks; let him: be heard
through. "In South Carolina" Iij says,
"there appe.nvd to have been no election
"at all, but. rat '..era scene of . skirmishes
"throughout th' State, polling places be
"ing regarded as prints to be captured by
"one party and held against the other.
"We know u, hundred and six Congression
al Representatives were chosen in States
"formerly slaychohiing, and that the ' I.)em
"ocrats 'elected one hundred and two of
"them.. That entire political power wa3
"ihus founded on numbers of colored pco
"p!e who had been seized and appropriated
"to strengthen the Democratic party'
Grant the' Maine Senators p-.emises, aud
you are irresistibly,, drawn to his conclu
sions., Concede the 'allegation that num
bers of colored voters were "seized and
"appropriated," and you make Mr. -Blaine
the discoverer of a race of criminals, can
nibals, and ' what not, down South,
hitherto undreamed of and starkly
diabolic as how revealed under the electric
liglits of the Senator from Maine. But
how were they seized, what were they
seized with, and how were they "appropri
ated" after the seizure? These are im
portant queries. Mr. Blaine, who knew
there had been seizures and appropriations
of colored men in the Southern States ought
surely to know who did the seizing and ap
propriating, unless it was done in the night,
and it was not alleged that the elections were
held in the' night.' In that event how does
Mr. Blaine know that the negroes didn't
each man "walk off on h;s ear' in
in the stilly darkness ? If it i was in the
day that the seizing and appropriating took
place somebody ought to have seen the
singular transaction Did Mr. Blaine see.
it? Where are Mr. Blaine's witnesses?
"Why didn't he give the names of a num
ber of credible bystanders, who personally
were cognizant of the tremendous body
snatching, that he alleges took place in
South Carolina oh the Cth of November ?
In the second place, Mr. Blaine desired
to find a method ly which to prevent " a
repetition of these crimes." Wanted a
-patent-right to make the South Republi
can once more! That is just what the
Senator from Maine desires. He will not
be gratified. The thing can't be done, at
least not just yet and in that peculiar man
ner. The resolutions are fine bluster biit
mighty poor ammunition for party war
fare. Mr. Blaine had something to say
about the war having been fought in vain
unless the people could see the Question
through his spectacles. Tain, rain re
mark, Mr. Blaine, and altogether unprofit
able. The sort of body-snatching by which
Democrats will rule Democratic States
will go on all the same, Mr. Blaine, your
resolutions and your wishes to the con
Senator Thurman's amendment provid
ing "that the committee shall also enquire
"whether any citizen of any State has been
"dismissed or threatened with dismissal
"from employment or deprivation of any
"right or privilege by reason of his vote or
"intention to vote at the recent election, or
"has been otherwise interfered with, and
"to enqire whether, in 1878, the money
"was raised by assessment upon the Federal
'employees for election, etc., and further
"whether such assessments were or were
"not in violation of the law, and shall
"further enquire into the conduct f the
"United States supervisors of elections in
"the several States, and as to the number
"of marshals, deputy marshals and others
"employed to take part in the conduct of
"said elections," reduces to the minimum
the flapping of the bloody garment which 1
I the Senator from Maine holds. Mr. Thar- I
' man, in his speech on his amendment, goes J A .New lork letter says: "otwitr
I into the merits of the nnestion. U,ih to ! standing the fire rears' compact agreed to

This debate will have its uses! Itwill
uo goou to the Democratic party.
An examination of Senator Edmund.-)
speech satisfies us that at least for the pur
poses of his electoral measure, to come up
in Congress to-day, he is a State rights
man. lie will hardlv "stick."
THE BLAINE It L SI ESS.
Mr. Blaine seems to le almost the only
leading Republican .who feels that the
capital stock invested by his party in
bloody shirts will pay a dividend. Congress
had hardlv met before the ajrile vounjrer
Senator from Maine flourished a small
parcel of resolutions as if he heldaschnetar
in close proximity to a deadly foe. In this
whole matter Mr. Blaine has acted ai if
there were only a past and a future, the
past secure and the future ditto. He ap
pears not to read the papers, or. if he reads
them, he puts his faith only in the Intter
end Republican sheets. Such journals
as the New York lhrul'd, the Phila
delphia Taint, and the like, winch ac
knowledge no party allegiance, could have
informed the muscular Senator that the
people of the North had been thinking a
good deal since he used to be the pet lead
er in the lower house of Congress and noted
for his comparative ' moderation -of . views.
They are rather with the then Blaine than
the; now Blaine. They have grown in lib
eralty and breadth,.' while he has shrank,
and they will not take up, the old grudges
and' hates, worn threidbare and cast aside
years ago. The' will no respond to this
blast from Mr. Blaine's ramshorn.
In all this there should be a .lesson for
the ultra Republicans. Certainly Mr
Blame might learn something now. lie
has always been credited with having a
large share of bumptious knowledge, which
he uses to the best advantage Tor 151aiiu
lie seeks to be President. Let him know"
that by such means as the resolutions pro
posing an investigation into Southern elec
tions he can never "climb the golden stair"1
to the White House. Hayes' conciliation

second time, and not expect a similar re
This Blaine business is getting to be a
petty nuisance which the .-.American- people
will hardly tolerate much longer. It no
longer commands the respect of even stal
wart Republicans. There may be a few
more flaps of the ensanguined raiment, but
the crimson dorv of the garment has faded
forever. Let no one fear that Mr. Blaine
has the power to restore the color thereof.

The Legitimate Fruit.
The election of AVade Hampton as a
Senator from South Carolina in place of
John Patterson was a foregone conclusion -but
it marks another scene in the now
rapidly closing drama of Southern Recon
struction. Exit the carpet-bagger, enter
the native; this has been the story of elec
tions in the South for six years," and so it
will go on until every seat in the national
legislature is filled by one of the class for
years under the ban of disfranchisement.
It is the legitimate fruit of the'Republican
policy of force which lias solidified the
South against the Republicans. Watle
Hampton is not the Senator that the North
would have chosen for South Carolina, but
that the Republican members of the Senate
voted for him and that the Republicans in
the House could find no better candidate
than the degraded Mackey to oppose him,
is an indication that the Democrats select
ed their best man and that the Republi
cans could not find a better or one so good.
An Idea of Spotted Tail.
Spotted Tail, the celebrated Sionx, was
in council with his. braves the other week.
During the session he told the Indians that
no honest men were now to be found ; that
a perfectly honest person had growing from
the palm of his hand a tuft of hair. The
Indians looked incredulous, but Spotted
Tail gravely assured them that such was
the case; that from his own palm a tuft of
hair once sprung, but that he had worn if
all off by shaking hands with white peo

TIVE rARTY OF XORTII CARO.
The State Executive Committee congratii i i
latcs the Democratic-Conservative party ot
North Carolina upon the result of the recent j
Congressional elections at the orth. lnese
elcctious clearly indicate three things which
are of consequence to us : Firt, that the peo
ple of this country ae diatilicd with the
Republican party and are" unwilling for the
Republican leaders to afflict us longer with
their ruinous measures and fraudulent prao
t ces. Second, that the Nationals do not meet
with popular lavor, and, as a separate or-j uni
at ion, have utterly failed to iiuprcts them
selves upon the country ; and lastly, that the
stir of the Democratic party is still in the
ascendant, and the people are looking to. that
party as the only one capable of restoring
prOierity to the country, and able to admin
ister the. government on those Constitutional
and just principles, which are essential alike
to the happiness of our citizens and to the
perpetuity of our institutions. Thus in the
elections held in eight States the Republicans
have lost twelve members of Congress; the
Nationals have elected four; and the Demo
crats have elected twenty-three, and have
Thes? facts demonstrate that the people in
tend to invest the Democratic party with the
full control of the National Government. The
Senate of the next Congress will be Democratic i
by a considerable majority, and it is only
necessary for the Democrats of the South to !
remain steadfast in their allegiance to our or- !
gaviization, and our triumph will be complete, j

Let us . ot by our apathy, our hike "warm- j
ness and indifference postpone the accession ;

able to check Republican corruion and to
arrest the progress of oer gover nment towards

Let us be steadfast in our devotion to prin
ciple, true to our organization and endeavor
by every means to discountenance those inde
pendents and disorganizes? who oppose our
worthy standard-bearers freely and fairly
chosen by the Democratic party in Convention
In particular do we desire to repeat what
we have so often urged the necessity of
thorough loeal organization. It is the town
sh'p committees who ar3 changed with the
most important of all party duties. To them
is committed the duty of supervising the
election, and of devising means to bring out
every Democratic voter to the polls. They
ought to meet frequently and advise and take
counsel together how best to promote the for
tunes of that party, on w hose success depends
so largely the prosperity-of themselves and of
their posterity. In ever' township, in every
neighborhood, there ought to be appointed a
committee of active, efficient,, and prudent

The magazine is well gotten up. The sub
ject matter is varied and entertaining, while
its typographical apjn-ar..nce is a model ol
neatnets, and refiects the highest credit upon
the exquisite taste and excellent judgment
that suggested and directed its consummatioti.
This publication appeals to the people of the
South for a staple support. It richly merits it
and we feel will receive it. We know of no
Southern literary venture that has exhibited
so much merit, united with an evidence of
management that must win for it a position in
the ranks of magazine literature and hold it.

The Soj-th-Atlaxiic has this merit over
any of its predecessors in the same arena, that
its contents are solid, though not heavy, and
thatno room appears to have been intended in

i character. While it continues to adhere to
! this rule, it will have every claim ori Southern
and general support, and we sincerely trust
ii will receive it.
