Where fragrant fall perennial showers,
The nymph did seem.
She tossed her head and passed me by,
And left me there to muse and sigh—
For strangers we—Oh ! ask not.why—

That took my heart a captife fast,
Will hald it spell-bound to the last—
Until the last of earth.
KIBIDXF.SS OF RADICAL KI'LE.
The overbearing rabidness of ltadi
rule in this country is getting to be al
most unbearable, and all lovers of the
Union and respecters of the Constitu
tion begin to see the true situation of
affairs, and are organizing against this
accursed Jocobi u ism.
It has been a noted and aspiring idea
of Puritanical luvto t/A miKrule rub
idly overbear in every event of being
placed in power in this country. From
the "blue laws" of Connecticut down
to the worse than fellon's chains they
have put upon the necks of the people
of the South in the shape of laws and
negro troops, their course is marked
with inconsistency and their true spirit
The spirit of Jacobinism is to stir up
It was the hate and intolerance of
puritanical New England that occa
sioned the late war.
It is the damnable rabidness of Radi
cal rule that is forcing negro suffrage
on the South at the point of the bayo
It is the spirit of overbearing petty
tyrants that is manifest in all the deal
ings and measures adopted for recon
structing the Southern States.
It is the Radical hell-hounds and
carpet-bagging infidels who discard
the Golden Rule and impiously declare
laws for one portion of the country
which they vote down in their own
Nothing is too bad for Radicalism fo
„The leaders of the party are liars,
thieves, pimps, and murderers, wlio
carry their schemes by the aid of ille
gal negro votes, and for fear of being
defeated they abolish the right of
Presidential electors in three States
and transfer the right to three well
known Radical legislatures.
They declare it a crime in three
States to vote for President, simply
because those States are Democratic,
thus doing away with a constitutional
and GOD given right.
Six States are thus declared by Radi
cals against Democrrcy in advance.
They declare that there shall be no
Union, except that it gives to them
military, political and social domina
tion over all classes and sections.
The Constitution has been ignomiui
ously set aside and the powers of the
Supreme Court assailed by the rabid
ness of these ruffians.
The constitutional right? of the Presi
dent have been curtailed by this mob
of fanatical law breakers, and we must
rally at the November election and
destroy this party root and branch, for
if they are successful, their deviltries
will be doubled and the American
people will be so persecuted that more
vigorous and bold measures will have
to be adopted for their riddance.
We have shown only a small part of
the rabidness, fury and hate that char
acterizes the progress of the Radical
party, and now we call upon Ameri
can freemen, to come forward in the
majesty and grandeur of their MIGHT,
and by a united effort in behalf of
glorious Democratic principles in No
vember, strike this gould Radicalism,
dead. It is a shame upon the Ameri
can people to stand idly by and allow
such outrages against freedom and the
rights of States to be i>erpetrated with
We dwell at length upon these out
rages on the Constitution and laws, in
the hope of enlightening the poor tax
payers of the country—to show them
the crime of further insulting this
country by electing any man from that
party, and that the sacred right of jus
tice demands that the Democracy shall
triumph. In this event, all will soon
be peace and prosperity, and the more
complete and overwhelming it is, the
longer it will be before this country is
again allowed to be cursed with Jacob
inism and the rabid rule of a Radical
SUI.DIKK. A WORD WITH YOU
We met you on the bank of the
James in 1864. Have you forgotten it?
It was in October of that year; the
steeples of Richmond and Petersburg
were in sight; it was the night after
an attack on the Danville Railroad.
As there was but one attack in that
month, of that year, you cannot fail to

Union. We said that you would nev

Democratic party. You said there
would be Union the moment armed op

We said that the party in power caret]
nothing for the Union. That they
went into the contest for negro suprem
acy, and the spoils of war. That there
was no hope of a cessation of hostili
ties, as long as the radicals ruled, and
there should be spoils to get, and ne
groes to evalate(?).
You said you believed we were de
ceived, and that if it proved otherwise
you would come over square and pat
upon the democratic platform.
We said that the Bads cared more
for the negro than for you, and that
you would discover it sooner or later.
You said that the government would
take care of its soldiers.
We said that the abolition hell-born
government didn't care a nickel cent
for its soldiers, only to use them for its
