S0CKD0LOGERS FOR SECRETARY
SHERMAN TO ANSWER.
A SHOUT CATECHISM FOR THE
How mdowa and Orphana Are Plundered
l'ur Tbe neueflt or the Syndicate.
DAMNING Hr.COBllS FROM 1119 OWN DE
PARTMENTTHE BLl'E (JOl'8 DOWN
IlbFURE THE URAT, PROVIDED
THE (IRAT HUttRADS FOR
A Wunliington corrc.pondciit of the
Cincinnati Enquirer, on the day Sccro
tary Sherman luff that city to itump
Ohio, said :
' Seurulary Sherman lull hern on this
mornin'a train, via tho 1'unnnylvania
Railroad, for Ohio. He jroca into thu
Slate to make campaign npecclu n to
induce tho voters to cast their suffragce
for Charles Foster, his crcaturo. In
view of this fact that tho impending
campaign is one in which Secretary
Sherman is tho central figure, and who
will reap all the advantages of a Re
publican victory, the following cute
chium, lor the guidance of I huso who
will listen to his speeches and sco lit
to abk him some questions, is prepar
Secretary Sherman will tell tho
people ot Ohio that lio lias closed
all (olunding operations. This ho told
tho people ol .M uino. Ho deceived them,
and will likewise attempt to doceivo tho
people ol Ohio. He had, on tho con
trary, not jut closed his recent con
tract with the pot Syndicate, which at
one fell swoop got control of all the lour
percent, bonds. OI the 180,000,OUO
subscribed in theso bonds by tho Syndi.
cato ti5,000,UU0 yet remain unpaid
for; and Secretary Shorman, in that
spirit of liberality which ho has al-
ays extended to a low r.asturn banks,
has extended the time lor final settle
ment until October 1st, although tho
original contract, which be has violated
at discretion, provided a final settle
ment should be made on July lilh
last. The immediate result is that tho
banks have tho uso of 15,000,000
until October 1st which belongs to the
people, and should have been in the
Treasury thirty dnj'8 ago. With money
worth two per cent at call, it will re
quire tho aid of a lightning calculator
to find how much money tho Syndi
cate will muku out or tho t l.r,000,000
which Sccrolnry Sherman allows them
This is not tho only reason, though,
that Secretary Sherman gave tho Syn
dicate an indulgence. Had a settle
ment been mudo according to the
contract, lour per cent, bonds would
not now be at a premium they might
bo held at par. Sherman fearful of
this decline, indulged the Syndicato
rather tfattn pressed them, because ho
wanted to keep the bonds up until alter
the Ohio election, so that be rould
point to tho negotiation ot the four
per cents with pride; and tho higher
the premium at which they wore held,
tho more pride would bo take in tho
transaction. It may bo well, also, lor
the people ol Ohio to know, while Sec
retary Sborman is among them, that
on the day the contract with tho Syn
dicato for tho four per cents was mudo
tho United States had on deposit in
the hands ot tho .N'ationBanks tho sum
of iL'00,000,000, and theso same banks
still havo about 1 10,000,000 in four per
cent, bonds to loan Western farmers at
two por cent, per month to enable
them to get their crops into mnrket.
Tho Syndicato havo three months to
pay for these bonds, during which
time they collected the interest, which
at four per cent, per annum is ono por
cent., aggregating $180,0011 profit be
fore they were callod on for ono cunt.
This ia not all. Tho monopoly thus
put in tho hands of these banltorr
mado a corner on tho bonds, and they
wuro enabled to chargo two per cent,
premium on the bonds, which makosa
clear profit of .'1C0,000, or, altogether,
the profits of this transaction between
tho .National Banks and John Sher
man was fMO,000.
Now, who does this monoy como
out of? During the extra session of
Congicss a widow of a Union soldier
wrolo to a member of Congress that
olio had curtain United States bonds in
trust for hor children, the proceeds ol
her deceased husband's pension ; that
she had applied for the interost on hor
bends, and for the first time ascertain
ed that her bonds were among those
called in, and the interost had oeasod.
She reqneatod the mom her of Congress
to go to the Treasury and exchange
her bonus lor lour per conn, ino
matter was presented to the United
States Treasury, and the reply w as
that the party could got tho face valuo
of tho bonds in money, but tho Gov
ernment bad do securities tor the sale.
Tho consequence was that the poor
woman had to pay a premium of 2)
por cent, (tbe small dcalors must have
thoir profit, hence the half oent addi
tional), and tho exchange for trans,
mission was half of one percent, more.
entailing a loss equal to nino months
interest on tier litllo patrimony, w line
the great capitalists of tho country
are lauding: Sherman's financial suc
cess, somehow the poor widows and
orphana aro not able to appreciate it
Secretary Sherman can also ba ask
ed by the loyal soldiers of Ohio why
he has appointed I onlcdcraics looinoo r
His friends say bo has not. Let us
see. Here is the roster :
Ceneral Withers was a Confederate
soldier. Ho served through the war.
He is brother of Senator Withers of
Virginia. He was appointod a first-class
clerk In the Kegister's Ofllce of the

bridges of the bodies of Union men in
18G1 in his paper, and was a rampant
Secessionist until ho roevntly began
the advocacy of Sherman for tho Presi

original Union man, a Presiding Elder
of tho Methodist Church, and being
too old for tho army cared for Union

down in cold blood on his own door
step, in tho presence of his family, by
Mosey s guerrillas, applied to tho
Treasury Department for a position,
having tho names of fourteen members
of Conpress on her papers indorsing
her ability and respectability; but
M rs. Barnes not being able to organize

tbe Departments aro overrun with tho
proteges of Confederate members.

of Yerqer, the. ex reM who assassinated
Colonel Wane, of Dayton, Umo, of the

Secretary Sherman can also be asked
bow it Is that the Sherman family are
all saddled on tho publio. Hore is tho
roster of thu Sherman family who aro
now making sacrifices on tho altar of
their country :
,V. T. Sherman, bcnoral of tho
Army, $17,700; $4,200 of this amonr.t

publio will give the clan Suet man due
crodit for what the males aro doing.
IXQERSOLL OX TIlKllEBRE WS
Colonel liobcrt G. Ingorsull, has ad
dressed tbe following characteristic loi
ter to tbo Hon. J. J. Noah, a promi
nent Hebrew, of Now York :
ily Dear Friends: As matter of
course, I am utterly opposed to tho op
pression of any class, and regard the
action of the proprietors of the Man
hattan Beach Hotel in reference to the
Jews as bigoted, mean and disgraceful.
Such action belongs to tho daik agog.
The persecution of thejows should
bring blush to every Christian chock.
Nothing is more Infamous than the op.
prossion of a class. Each man baa tho
right to ba judged upon his own
merits. To oppress bim or to hold
him in comtompt on account of relig
ion, raco or color, is a crime.
Every man should be treated justly
and kindly, not becauso he is or ia not
a Jow or a Gentile, but becauso he is a
human being, and as such capable of
joy and pain. 11 at any oolol a man
tails to act in a decent ana becoming
manner, let him be put out not on ao
oount of the nation to which ho be
longs, but on account of bia behavior.
Any other course ia unjust and cruel
It will not do for tbe keepers of pub
lic houses to brand an entire race as
unfit to associate with them.
Sonio ot tho leading men of the
world aro Jews. Theso wonderlul peo
plo, although dispersed, despised, and
lor many ages persecuted in all coun
tries wbore pcoplo loved their enemies
and returned good for ovil, have con
tributed to overy science and enriched
every art. Ho who has heard tho mu
sic of Mcndolsshon and Meyerbeer,
who has studied the grand philosophy
ol Spinoza, and has seen upon the
stago Kuchol, mistress of passion, will
hardly unito in the condemnation of
tho ruce to which those prodigies be
longed. Neither should it bo forgotten that
tho Jowb furnished thoir persecutors
with a religion, and that they aro tho
only peoplu, aocordiuar 4a Ilia dogmas
ofourduy, with whom tho Almighty
ovor deigned to havo any intercourse
When wo remember that God so
lectod a Jewess for His mother, pass
ing by the women of India. Egypt,
Athens, and Iiomo, as well as tho
grandmothers of Mr. Corbin, it is hard
ly in good taste lor the worshipers of
mat sumo (jotl to bold the Jews in
Wo should also remember that the
Jows wore tho only people Inspired.
All tho "sacred" writers, ail tho"proph
els," wore oflhis raco, and while Chris
tians almost worship Abraham, not
withstanding the n flair of II agar, and
his willingness to murder his own son,
and whilo they hold in almost infinite
respect David, tho murdoror, and Sol
omon, the Mormon, it certainly is not
perfectly consistent to denounce men
and women of the same ruce who havo
committed no crimo.
Tho Christians havo always been
guilly of this inconsistency with ro
gurd to tho Jews they havo worship
ped tho dead and persecuted the liv
ing. I think it would be much better
to let tho dead tuko euro of themselves,

TUB YAZOO BVSMES8.
Just after the war a man named
Morgan, who had some connection with
the Fedcrul army, settled in tho county
of Yazoo, Miss., and married a mulatto
woman, engaging in politics as an avo
cation. The population of the county
of Yazoo, at that time, was four fifths
black, and Morgan, by thoroughly
identifying himself with tho negroes,
became thoir lender. His word was
law. He found no difficulty, in being
elected to any othco bo chose, and (in
ally, after trying a number, selected
that of Sheriff as boing tbo most profit-
aulo. llis reign was a reign ot terror.
Things wont on from bad to worse,
until every white man who did not
profit by an association with Morgan
found a refuge elsewhere Ono day a
man named Dixon, who had been a
Cotilederato soldier, and was woll-
known as a desperate character, sent
Morgan an unsealed letter in which
ho tersely informed him that bo (Dix
on) was tired of tho way things had
been going on, and that he wanted him
(Morgun) lo "got out of there." In
order that ho might know just whut
was meant, Dixon added a poslci ipt to
tho effect that if ho met bim alter tho
receipt of his letter bo would shoot
him on sight. Morgan was a desperate
man himself, but ill Dixon ho recog
nized his master. Within the timo
prescribed ho found himself a new
abiding place. Dixon immediately suc
ceeded to his lordship and tyrannical
Tho negroes feared Inm, but they
obeyed him. Ilo ruled them as mer
cilessly as Morgan, and by the same
means. One day be chased an ollend
ing colorod man to a cotton field where
thirty or forty other negroes wero at
work. Tbo hunted man saw bim com
ing and fled to the rivor. Dixon rodo
up to tho gang unattended and forced
them by his will power olono to cap
ture tho runaway, put a rope around
bis neck and bang him to the limb of
a treo without any more ado than it ho
had been a mad-dog. Two years ago,
Dixon mot a gambler who had won
some ol his monoy and shot him down
without a word of warning. His next
job was to pack a jury with nogroos,
and obtain an acquittal. Jiy mis time
he had become as great a terror as
Morgan bad ever boon, and finally tho
whilo citizens of Yaxoo and the sur
rounding country made common cause
and drovo him out of tho Stato. Two
months ago he returned and announc
ed himself as an independent candidate
for Sheriff. That meant, if it meant
anything, a ronowal of tho old scenes
violence, murder and ruin, in sheer
sclf-delonce, just as they would have
united against, an insane man with a
torch in his hand, or a wild animal,
tho citizens of Yazoo county without
distinction of politics or color came
together, and informed Dixon that ho
would not bo allowed to turn their peace
ful community into another boll. In
most countries such a man would have
been hung to the highest treo or near
est lamp-post, and but litllo noto would
have been made ol it. lloro, however,
a quiet but determined suppression of
him bos been tortured into proscrip
tion of the worst grade, and Northern
papers havo printed columns of denun
ciation of what thuy stylo "the Missis
sippi method." Citizens who havo
combined moroly to protect thoir flro
sidus from rapine and riot, aro assailed
aa bull dozers and Yahoos.
Tho telegraph now brings us tbo

Fourteen bills of indictment have

for conspiracy to promote legislative
corruption. All the persons arraigned

Those "Horrid llr.nn. Women."
A cotomporary remarks : That wretch
ed old mouther and femalo "Eli Per
kins," Jano Gray Swizzlem, is out in a
hysterical loiter guaranteeing tho hon
or and purity of Mrs. Kato Chase
Spraguo. Sho says that the present
scandal is the result of a conspiracy on
tho part of the horrid robol women in
Washington to ruin Mrs. Spraguo be
cause sho is tho daughter of her father
and the leading lady in the Bepublic.
She calls upon the northern people to
totally ignore "the baying of tho pack
of Southern hounds in Washington."
Old Mrs. Swizzlem may be correct but
we shall always admire the ingenuity
ol those Southern people. Tho way
in which they managed to havo Mrs.
Sprague in tbe Senate gallery last
winter whenever Boscoe made a great
effort and tho cunning fnannor in which
they Induced bim to drive out to
"Kdgowood" the lonely home of the
neglected wilo two or throo times a
week, tarrying till 2 and 3 o'clock in
tho morning, will always command
our rospoct. We begin to think that
the Southern peoplo in Washington
will eventually destroy all tho great
persons of Bepubliean attributes in tho
country. Between tho "Conlederato
Brigadiers" and the "horrid rebel wo
men," it is probable that tho reputa
tion of such godly men and women as
Mrs. Swizzlem namoa may be ruined,

obstacles to the consideration ol powor

and to this end, they seek to impress

tho general government was tho doo
trine of tho right of secession. South
ern Slates in luto years, and Ihe New
bnglund in Inrmcr years, contended
that they had tho right to sccedo from
tho Union whenever they deemed their
interest demanded such secession. This
doctrino was first contended for by the
New England States during the war of
1812, and ber citizens burnt 'blue
lights' to show tho British a safe en
trance into tho harbors. Tho people
of theso Slates said tho war of 1812
was contrary to their intorosls and,
therefore, they had the right to so
cedo that secession was a light which
each Stalo reserved when it came into
the Union. Thero was no such doc
trino as her Bepubliean people now
contend for, that wo aro a nation and
Stato rights aro dead. Their hopo is
that by consolidation they will remain
masters of the government, and by
their capital keep in bondugo to them
tho growing and now powerful influ
ence of tho West. From them the
Southern people became the advocates
ol secession when tho slavery question
loomed up ns an important actor in
tho politics of the country. Tho only
difleronce bctwoon thorn was, that the
Now England States were too coward
ly to fight for tho doctrine while tho
Southern States sacrificed all they bad
for tho principle
Ihe doctrino of socession as a Stato
right Is doad mado so by tho result
of tho war, but to say that all other
rights of States aro dead is to ignoro
tho States for tho goneral government.
This is ttao old Federal doctrine and no
man who has a drcn of Democratic
blood in his veins can advocate it. The
people aro, therefore, called npon to
assert tho fundamental doctrine of tho
government, viz: that our government
is ot a two fold character, ono possess
ed of powers which it was impossible
to exercise by the States separately
and yet maintain a bond of union; tho
other having special relation to the
domestic wants of the people and to bo
performed through tho reserved pow
ers of the States. Each of theso oper
ato within their respective spheres,
and for either lo entrench upon the
other, for any purposo wholovor, is to
destroy tho character of our govern
ment in both essence and form. So
cession is dead and t!4 people have de
clared tho union of Stales shall exist
forever. We do not want,, therefore,
any parly, or tho leaders of any party,
putting forth pnliticul heresies by
which will be ellccteil a result as bad,
or even worse, than had secession suc
ceeded. Tho Southern secessionists
wished to disintegrate the government
and havo ono of thoir own. They
failed. Northern Federalists want to
wipe out tho Statos by destroying
'State rights' and forming a consolida
ted government with themselves at its
bend. They will fail also. Our Dem
ocratic government will remain Demo
