GREAT MASS MEETING !
Republicans Rally !
SATURDAY SEPT. 19 Hi
AT PLATTSMOUTH I
There will be a Grand Republican
Mass-Meeting ia this city on the 19ih
inst. JMakc your preparation to be on
hand, and bring all your neighbors.
The Speakers for the occasion will
be announced hereafter.
What do repudiation advocates sup
pose would be the effect if this govern
ment should attempt lo pay off toieign
bond-holders in greenbacks ? Do il.ey
suppose the imposition would be quiet
ly submitted to ? The people of Ger
many ever the friends of freedom
took large quantities of our bonds for
which they cave us their po!d. Dj
you suppose they would relish the kind
of honesty that would pay them back
in depreciated greenbacks?
As our copperhead friends have
much to say about "equel taxation of al
species of property according to valu
ation, including government bonus, it
may be well to enquire a little about
this matter. It has been three limes
decided by the Supreme Court of the
United Stales that government securi
ties cannot be taxed. What about the
honesty of men who advucaie such tax
ation in the face of ihe:e decisions and
the express contract that they t-liall nut
be taxed ? Are they honest, and are
they to be trusted ? The men who took
these bunds at a tune when the war for
the Union must fail unless they were
taken, took them under contract that
they should not be taxed and paid more
for them than would have been paid
without such contract or, in other
words, they paid the tax at the time of
the purchase ; and yet men are found
who would dishonor the government
and cheat the men who saved the nation
by furnishing the means to procure the
munitions of war and their reason for
so doing ia simply because the money
thus furnished did save the government
from bein overthrown. 1
REPUBLICAN GALV OF FROM
7 000 TO 1O000!!
State Senate Unanimously Re
HOW ARE YOU RE-ACTWX
Mu.ntpiuer, Vt., Sept 1.
The annual election held in this
State to day, resulted in the success of
the Republican St.- te ticket by a largely
increased majority over Iat year ; ihz
election of three Congressmen by
heavy mpjoriiie ; the choice of the
State Senate unanimously Republican,
and t! e House nearly so.
The returns from one third cf the
State indicate a Republican majority
of 27.000 for Governor. Good jutlffes
et it evea as high as 30,000. The
Republican majority last year, on Gov
ernor, was 20 184 Ed IIebald
The voie is the heaviest ever known in
the State since IS 10.
Have been organized in neatly every
precinct in this county, and every. hine
bids fair f jr a rousing majority for
Grant and Ct If.ix ami the Republican
State ticket. Republicans, relax not
an effort, but keep pouring the truth
into the ears of such of our polnical
opponents as are willing to receive it.
li is a time when no man should neg
lect his duty. 'Ihe welfare of iha coun
try demands that every patriot be up
II CADE It
What wculd you think of a man whose
note you held at 6 per cent, interest
who would come to you on pay day and
offer you as payment his duebill, with
out interest payable at his pleasure.
You would think he was rather a menu
mi n, wjuld you not ? S-jpp.ise he
owed you for mmy h:.t hi :i at a time
he was "flt broke," an 1 uia.-l h ive
money or faii ? That would make h in
till meaner, would it not ? Well, th it
13 just the wiy it is with this govern
m-nt. If tNe Democrat c pirty could
carry out their programme, liio mn
who hold her bond, issued at a time
when she was compelled to have money
or fail, would be aked to take as pay
ment the duebill of ihe government.to
be paid when the Democratic party wa
ready to do so. Should such a course
be pursued, how much money do you
suppose the United States could rai.-e
the next time sue wanted to borrow
Just about the saoe amount you would
let ihe man have who had endeavored
to cheat you out of the money you hail
loaned him to ave him from bankrupt
cy. Will jvu be n party to a swindle
of ihis kind by voting for the meu who
declare in favor of such policy on the
part of this government ?
It is astonishing bow men of intelli
geuce can be wheeled with the lugaboo
at out taxes raised by democratic speak
ers. They tell you that you are tax
ridden and oppresed, and many men
appear to believe it If they told you
ttiat your farm yielded fifty bushels of
wheat to the acre when you only got
fifteen, wculd you believe it? Now,
we pretend to say that not one man in
every hundred in Nebraska pays one
cent of direct tax to the Government.
You have your ordinary State and coun
ty taxes to pay, as you would have un
der auy circumstances. Bui how many
meD of Cass Cour.ty pay a Government
tax ? We only know one or two Dem
ocrats who do to, and they pay but a
trifle?. The fact is, that under the Re
publican system of taxation only those
who have' an income, iu excess of ex
penses, of over Sl.000. pay any income
tax to the Government al all. What
would it be under the programme laid
down in the democ ratic platform. That
document would "tax all ropeny alike,
according to valuation," ih't is. the man
who owns a farm w orth 82 000 and is
only able to make his money affairs
come out even and give his children
proper surport and educa.ion, has to
pay the same tax on that S2.000 woith
of property as the man who makes a
clear profit of that amount during the
yedr. Under tne Republican plan of
taxation no hing that the farmer raises
is taxed, and very little that he pur
chases nothing except luxuries. Not
solitary article which is a reeessity to
tne poor man is taxed. Under the Deni
ocratic plan, everything must be taxed
alike, even the nourishment that goes
into your children's mouths must pay
the same taf as the perfumed cigar or
bowl of punch with which the nabob
regales himself. Examine the record
and see if we are net correct.
Of the men of the North who vote the
Demccra-.ic 'Tirol are ready .o ciy.
with Wade Hampton, that ihe cause
for which Stonewall Jackson fell is not
dead, but will Again revive in some
form." It matters not how many of
them are will nsr to "revive" that cause,
every one cf them who votes for Frank
Blair sives his absent, either directly
or indirecty. to such revival, u.d why?
Because the leaders of the party called
Democratic ar pledged to such south
erners a Hampton. Foret, Vance.and
other prominent advocates of that
"cause," to assist in the revival and
help make it a success. Let men look
carefully before they make the leap
that lands this Government in the midst
of another war.
In his speech in this city Mr. Popple
ton said that ' Radical malice would
accomplish what bayonets had failed to
do" He was endeavoring to show
that the ex-rebels were being persecu
ted beyond endurance, and that "Radi
cal Malice" was the cause of it. The
proposition ihat the Republican party
have exhibited malice toward these ex
rebels is, at'first sight, so supremely
ridiculous that one is inclined to Inush at
the man who advances the idea, instead
of treating it as a propsi'ion likely to
be of any effect. Yet, when we con
sider what trifles sometimes turn th
scale, and whpn we see men who ough
to be intelligent give credence to such
argument, we are inclined to a-k men
to carefully and candidly examine into
,he truthfulness of such statements
J'it stop and ask yourself whether, in
the history of the worl J, a set of men
who rebelled against their government
and were whipped, were let off as len
iently as the men who fought this na
lion for four long years, casing a del
of billions of dollars, and tne untimely
death of hundreds of thou-ands of brave
men. as it or was it not a crime to
make open war on this government
Answer this question to yo"r own sat
isfaciion, and then proceed by aski:;
yourself whether, if it was ;i crime any
less restriction? (we will not cll it pun
iihment, for it is not,) could be throw
around the leaders of that rebellion
with safety to the nation, than those
prpoed by the Republican party. I
any other country on the face of th
earin ttie leaders wouu nave ceen sliot
and ihe balance treated as the worst of
criminals. Bat what did this govern
ment ask of them, and what was thei
reply ? It was asked that those w
had perjured themselves in addition to
their treason be deprived of ihe right
to held cftice. This proposition wa
not. certainly, conceived in malice'
toward those men, for what Siatt? in
the Union does not punih perjury more
severely than ihat. And yet ihisproj
osition was met with scorn by ha
men whom Mr. Poppleton claims are
the victims of "Radical Malice." What
we ask, could this Government uo to
protect herself that Mr. Poppleton wol
not call -'malice." In the fir.-l offer t
these rebels they were left perfectly
free to regulate ihe franchise as bes
?uited them, and it was only asked tha
proven perjurers be kept cut of ofiice,
and yet that is called '"malice" toward
the perjurer. Will Mr. Poppleton tell
in his next speech, whether it was
copperhead "malice" which, in Ohio.
ty a strict piny vote, di.-f renchi;ed th
maimed and crippled Union soldi -rs ot
thitt Siate? We suppose he will de
iena mai action, ana ciann mat tne
Democratic Legislature of Ohio dis
franchised the disabled Union soldier.-
of that State out of pure love for them
Which is the greatest crime. Mr. Pop
plet.m, being a crippled Union soldier
or a perjured rebel soldier ?
mere. -ire many very many men
who are supporting the cause of modi-rn
Democracy who nre as honest and true
lo the government as we could ask men
to be, but they are miled as to the real
issue before the people. They are
blinded by the sophistry of words, and
do not dive down deep in:o ih hearts
of me.i. We tell them, without fear
of successful contradiction, that the
real issue is whether this government
shall be administered as a free Repub
lic, and the late war shall be consider
ed as a victory of loyalty and right over
treason and wrong, or whether we shall
have a "caste" government, wherein
the poor man shall be trodden under
ihe heel of ihe self-styled aristocrat
auu iue .'ate war xor our national ure

far as the vindication of our national
life nnd power are concerned. Let
men but read rend carefully and hon
estly the saying of prominent South
erners the meu who to day control
and shape the course of thi Democrat
ic party for that pany can do nothing
without the aid of these southern aris
tocrats, and they only consent to take
hold as leaders, not as followers and
see if they cannot discover the current
leading directly to ihe goal of anarchy.
Gen. Cuilrn A. B title t. ii - '.tii roar
inj at a SeyiT.uur and B air meeting in
loldle.nnd was introduced to the meet
ing by John Foryihe, of ihe Mjbile
Register, who commended hiiu as fol
lows: "Gen. C. A. Battle richly did his part
in the fields of the S. uth, when a holy
libation of blood and valor was poured
out to the coiiimo i renown At Seven

Oar worthy President, Col Herndon,
himself bearing the scars of the mighty
conflictwill introduce to you oue of ill
lieroe.i of thi gigantic war."
In ihe course of his speech, General
Battle addressed bis fellow soldiers of
tne late C. S. A. as follows:
"Comrades! I rohers ! year after
year you bore the Confederate flag
through fire and tempest, am. upon
more than two hundred battle fields
covered it with victory. Your imper

shall it remain a perpetual heritage to
your children ? What though your flag
went down bnilied in woman's con-e-rraiuig
tears and baptized in the best
blood ot ihs nation ? This is still your
oauve land. You all did love her once,
not without cause. Her mountains are
as grand, her valleys areas fertile as

matrons ure a virtuous. Is she less
dear to you because she 1 as opened her
maternal bosom ai d received to her

in the midst of her desolation has at

That geueral anarchy seems to be
prevalent in the country is evidenced
by a hundred levers on tile in ihe Gov
ernor's otlice. Men are shot down in
the roads ; at churches even, in the ac:
of prayer, as was doi e iu the parish
of Rapides not long ago. and murdered
iu their houses, and iheir houses burn

parish. And for what ? In many case

It is useless lo talk of p rscnal difli

ihe country. The statement of Judge
CrawfV rd, Colonel Wade H. Hough, ot
Caldwe'l, Judge Wiley, of CarroJi.and
a uozen other ciiiz t.s of rorth Louts
laua, shows that over thirty men have
been killed in the pari-h of Franklin
recently. The Tensas Gazelle related
the acts of many murders us given it
by the fleeing negroes from that p-iri-h.
In Morehouse parish letter show that
many men have been killed. So in

for it. The Legislative Committee will
