LOOK AT THE RECORD
- The Democratic stumpers all accuse
the Republicans of keeping Southern
States out of the Union. Let every
democrat look at the votes in the Con

there, that while every Republican vol

which were admitted, every democrat
voted against their admission That

democrats would not countenance the
distortion of the truth, did they take
the trouble to inquire into the facts,
but their leaders profess to own them.

thought for themselves. Look at the

that you will take their voic to day

CEI-MANS AND IRISII-tlEX.
There are in thi3 country many Ger

Mr. Clarke took the stand and dis

many of the leading issues of the day
with much earnestness. He spoke the
sentiment of. every loyal heart when
he said "that to support the Democrat

the rebellion was right and that the war
waged against it and in favor of the Un

To support thii Democratic party is to
say that hundreds cf thousands of our

have added that to support the Demo

of slavery, and but give us the power

The New-York Convention declares
our Slate Government a mere creation
of usurpation, and of course not entitled
to the allegiance oi lhe people; and it
proclaims the.. Reconstruction acts of
Congress 'unconstitutional, revolution
ary.and void' -omitting the word null,
when the strong will of Jackson, pre
vented war. If the Reconstruction acts
are void, so are the reconstruction mea
sures of President Johnson, and the
negroes are still slaves. This leads to
war. But it is said, 'slavery and seces
s ion' are dead issues. Why or how?
Adm however, that the only object
lo dePr,vf lhe) freedmen of political
rights. How can that be effected?
Some say 'it is to be done by the ballot
and not by the bayonet.' How? That's
the question. The freedtnen are now
in possession of ibe right . to vote; o
course, if tbey vote, the Const ituiiou
cannot be nine nded, o the only mode
is to carry out practically the doctrine
that the Reconstruction acts are void
and our Consilium).) is or no effect.
This is nullification, and disguise it as
Lthfiy mavf it n.usV resul; in war. His
tory furnishes no in-tance of 4. 000,000
of people, backed a they are in our
State, by a clear majority of 20.000
votes, being deprived of political rights
which they have enjoyed for years.
It cannot be done without a civil war.
It is against the order of nature.
My countrymen ! It is lime lo pause.
and refuse longer to follow the lead of
violent politician?. We should discard
prejudice and passion, and act on s our
own judgement as to what should be
done under the circumstances by which
we find ourselves surrounded.
The most violent members of any
party, provided thatihey can get mem
bers enough at the startle make a re
spectable showing, always carry their
point, for reason is put aside, vitupera
tion and abuse are hurled at all who
hesitate;'he is not a friend of the South,
he is a traitor to his race and colorSec
The women and children (creaturs of
feehng)join in the clamor, and so it
goes. You and I were opposed to se
cession, the bulk of the people opposed
it, yet we were hurl-d into it. After
the ordinance, like tiue men, we ad
hered to our State, and rendered faith
ful allegiance to the. Confederacy up to
the surrender. What did we sain by
it? I should rather ask who can esti
mate what we lost by it? "
I will specify instances where bad
was made worse by violent politicians:
1. We labored under a supposed m-
convemance in not being allowed to
carry slaves into the Territories, and
owing to the prejudices against slavery
a fugitive slave could not be reclaimed
under the act of Congress without more
cost than his value. To remedy this
ihe South seceded. We lctt all our
, 2. At the Fortress Monroe confer
ence it was in our power to be restored
to all the rights of a State, provided we
would submit to gradual emancipation
that is, every negro born after a day
to be fixed, should be free at the age
of 21. But the cry was 'independence
or nothing,' fight it out, when It was
known we could not open the Spring
campaign without a re-eaforcement of
200,000 negro "soldiers; which was
impossible, or if possible fatal to our
cause. The result was a surrender
without terms, followed by instant em
ancipatioD; with four millions of freed
men in our midtt! So bad was again
3. What was to be done with the
freedmen? The idea of four millions
of people, not slaves, existing in our
midst without some political right, wus
out of the question. Such a condition
of things has never within the memory
of man and never will exist. It is
against the eternal laws of nature !
At that time we had it in our power to
put all things right by submitting to
qualified negro suffrage. That is, let
every freedman who could read and
write, or owned, say SlOO ; worth of
nronertv. have the riaht to vote. Not
much harm would have come of this,
fur the negro vote would have become
scattered and neutralized. But no!!
"This is a white man's government."
Prejudice excluded reason. How did
it result? The State is reduced io a
military distsict with a provincial gov
ernment, subject to the order of the
General Commanding. Tne freed
men are entitled to full suffrage and
the right to hold office. These terms
mposed by the general government,
have been submitted and acted upon. A
clear majority of 20,000 votes has fixed
the matter. So bad was again made
Let me ask, why did Gen. Lee sur
render? Because he could not help it.
For lhe same reason we must submit
to the political, not ihe social (for that
is a thing under our own control j
equality of the freedmen. This is the
situation the question ts, shall we go
on and make bad worse, or shall we
try to make the best of i;? '
What is the reason that the negro
vote, instead of being" scrttered, is con
centrated with the foil force of a solid
column? It is carried by the violent
opposition made to the will of the gen
eral Government in regard to ' recon
struction. . -
The' freedmen have still an undefin
ed impression that there is still a wish
to reduce them to slavery.- They cer
tainly have a well founded belief thai
there is a determination to deprive
them of their political equality.
This makes them 'pull together, re
move the presure and their vote : will
be neutralized, and unless ' 1 mistake
the power and effect of the superiority
of the white man, aided a3 he is by
education and the possession of the
wealth of the country, in a few years
they will vote as before 1S6G- In the
boroughs of Newbern, uastoD, Hills-
boro, Nash, Halifax, Daniel, Saulbury
McKay, Edenton, Johnston, Wilming
ton, and Meares, it was then a sub
ject of remark: "The free niggers al
ways vote - for the - most respectable
men." How is this pressure to be
movedf liy giving them assurance
that we "acquiesce," and are content
to allow them political equality. Hew
is that assurance to be .given? Bt
electing Grant and Colfax. : Then we
shall have peace, and the country will
have repose, which it so much needs.
But elect the candidates of the other
pariy. ' This certifies the freedmen
that we are not co.itent to let things
stand as they are; it is an open decla
ration of war, and they will stand firm
in solid column against ns, supported
by what has been called in derision;
'the mean white man, but supported
by enough to give them a majority of
20,000 votes. What is io be " the : re
sult? . Agitation, of course, but where
is the reason to fear worse may come
of it. Has it ever been - known that
four millions of people, after enjoying
political rights for years could T.be2 re
duced to vassalage without civil war?
And such a civil war! The mind re
volts at its contemplation.'' lhe war
we have just passed through is as no
thing-compared to it.' Some -ugget
how can our condition be made worse?
We have a Legislature composed of
men who pay no laxep, but . have un
imated power trf.tai ti-rAVe have in
competent Judges, clerks, &c. Our
ancient mode of judicial proceeding is
'torn up by the roots, and many who
are strangers to it are put iu high pla
ces. So much of this as is true is to
be regreted- We must accept the sit
uation and make the most of it. Di
vine inspiration leaches us 'it is hard to
kick against the pricks. Ate we not,
my friends in some measure to blame
for. this condition of things?. Had we
at an earlier day come out openly for
reconstruction, according to the Gen
eral Government, is it not fair to pre
sume that the conservative element
would have entered more largely into
the composition of the Convention and
Legislature, and of the high places of
trust and confidence?
- My conclusion is, we must concede
to the freedmen political equality, if
we can only satisfy them we do so in
good faith, by voting for Grant and Col
tax. Then there will be an end to
the strife. The contemplation of war
and bloodshed will be put from us.
The freedmen will become satisfied
that it is for their good interest to al
low us to have the guidance of public
affairs, and the innate power and vigor
of the white man will convince the
world that we are alia lo carry a
weight of four millions imposed on us
by the unaccountable decrees of Provi-
dance, and still work out our destiny
as the creates! republic that has ever
been known among the nations.
It ia .aid by some, 'The political
equality of the freedman is a fixed fact'
but is it necessary to agitate and bluster
atout nullification and war, in order to
restore theConsiitution andStates rights
and to turn lhe radicals out of office.
..In regard to restoring the Conttitu
tion and State right?, no one pretends
that the reconstruction measures of the
President, or of the General Govern
ment (for an act passed over the veto,
is an act of the Government) are in
accordance with tha Constitution. It
is also clear that they are not unconsti
tutional, but extra constitutional; that is
acts done to meet the emergency not
forseen by the framers of that in.nru
ment. Such is the decision of our Su
preme Court, by the concurring opinion
of three Judges, Battle, Reade and
Pearson, in two cases ex parte Hughes;
Cook agt. Cook; Philips' Reports.
So the sugestion of restoring lhe Con
stitution is a pretext, and the notion
that, as the State has ntver been out
of the Union, she instantly , after tho
surrender was entitled lo all the rights
of a State as if n. thing had happened,
is a fallacy. Your son rebels; he h
still your son, but is he entitled to the
rights and privileges of a child, until
he atones and i3 reconciled to his pa
rents? So restoring State rights is out
of the question.
In regard to turning the Radicals out
of power, it is strange that men can be
willing to put the lives and fortunes of
t!ie people on a venture, in order lo
obtain an object so insignificant, com
pared with the fearful consequence by
which it may be attended. v e agita
ted and blustered about secession and
war, when not one in ten expected it
would come to that, fhall we now aiii
tate ad bluster about nullification and
war and be surprised at a similar re
soli? Should we not take a lesson .from
experiance? Such ngiiatiou and blus
ter for a party purpose is not only de
ceitful, but, it seems to me, wicked, at
it may lead to such auful consequences.
It is inevitable that, the Conserva

lhe nullifiers. The difference is - so
vital, thatihey cannot act together as
one party, lhe nullihers act with
the Democrats. There can be no rea
son why . the Conservatives, without
identifying themselves with the Re
publicans, but keeping up iheir organi
zation as a'party and leaving the null-fir
ers to go to themselves, may not act
with the Republican party, and vote
for Grant ai the man for the occasion.
who, like Jackson, will put a stop to
nullifiction, in the new chape in which
it now raises its hydra head.
When the storm is over, the Conser
vative parly, representing, as it does.
the property and intelligence of the
State, will take the guidance of affairs,
and all will be well.
