LETTER FROM OUR ALABAMA CORRES
PONDENT. A Review or the Political Situation In the
Seuth The Republican Party "all
Kreke Up." and the Politi
cal Sentiment Unan
cratic. HUMORS OF JOURNALISM.
Hew the Editor's Assistant "Ran" the News
paper In the Absence of His Chief.
A Hopeful Outlook from the Seuth.
Correspondence of the Ixtkllieexcer.
Marengo County, Ala.,
July 6, 1880.
Iu less than one month from te-day a
general election will be held, at wli'cli
every officer, from village constable te the
gevemer of Alabama will be chosen. Such
an event is always proceeded by excitement,
and often by these acts of popular passion
and violence, which furnish the principle
arguments against Democratic institutions.
Fer once in our history, old things seem
te have passed away, and this campaign
presents a new era iu our social and politi
Frem Tennesse te the Gulf, from Gee:-gia
te Mississippi, through the hills and val
lies of Alabama, peace reigns. There is
no excitement ; tlicie is no electioneering ;
there are no opposing candidates, and the
nominees of the county, district and state
conventions will be elected with a unan
imity never before known in any country
gevci ned by popular suffrage. The Radi
cal party is dead and buried. A few per
sons, who represent nobody, attempted te
organize an "Independent, Greenback
Laber Party," but the effort failed. The
Democratic ticket will recover nirc
tcnths of the votes cast in August, and
the majerty for Gov. Cobb will be be
tween 75,000 and 100,000. Why is tins?
What has become of the Republicans?
Where are the unterrificd colored voters ?
It is because the people have had six years
of Democratic government, and they see
its benefits, ie low taxes, honesty in office,
protection of life, liberty and property,
the rapid increase of wealth and the
development of all our material resources.
The Republicans (doubtless there are
honest men of that party in ether states),
were all rogues, thieves and
plunderers, and just as seen as
a step was put te this rascality, left for
parts unknown. There are net Republi
cans enough in Alabama te fill the post pest
offices and take the census. In this, one
of the wealthiest counties, with a pepuh
tieu of ever 30,000, every postmaster, ex
cept one, and every census enumerator is
a Democrat. The colored voters, se furi
ously Republican when led by the carpet
bag rascals, did exactly what the brave
colored troops did in the rebelien when
net supported by brave white men. They
surrendered, and each one tried his level
best te get into the Democratic party first,
and te prove that he had been "a white
man nigger, you knew boss; a Dcmo Dcme
krat all dc time." In this way in the
Black Belt, where the negre population
is often twenty times as great as the
white, the Democrats poll their largest
If this be true in a contest for state offi
cers, what will be the result of the presi
dential and congressional election? The
Democrats are thoroughly organized. Tlicy
will turn out and vote. With wise Mr.
Tildcn as the nominee, they would have
carried the state by a large majority
against Gen. Grant, who is the strongest
man in the Republican paity. Gen. Han
cock and Mr. English will have no opposi
tion. Their majority will be well, it will
be nearly the whole voting population,
and may be put down at 125,000 en a light
Mr. Garfield's friends cannot put a
decent natural ticket in the field. They
have net in the state a single man, who can
make a respectable stump speech, unless
it be Judge Sain'l F. Rice, and nobody
can tell whether this versatile and incon incen
sistant genius will be for or against them.
They cannot organize clubs, nor get up
public meetings, nor circulate campaign
papers, without help from beyond the
limits of the state. It has been well said
of them. "They have neither soldiers te
fight, nor money te buy ammnnitien, nor
brains te command." The Republican
national executive committee will net
spend money in order te assist a few post
masters, two or three deputy marshals, a
half dozen Mobile custom house officials,
and a squad of ignorant negre preachers in
canvassing Alabama. They will spend
their surplus cash and energy in Pennsyl
vania, New Yerk and ether contested
Se far as relates te the congressional
elcctieus, the Republicans are in, if it
were possible, a worse condition. Bill
Lewe will represent 'Independent Green
backers no mere. Ne man can be elected
te Congress from Alabama except he is a
Democrat and in perfect accord with his
party. If the Republicans cannot get up
a respectable electoral ticket, where will
they find a decent candidate for Congress ?
These views of mine may interest your
readers. Yeu can refer te my random let
ters, written during the past six years,
and they will show that I have always
been posted about Alabama affair?.
I assure you that the nomination of Gen
eral Hancock suits our people. He was
and is our first choice ; and we only with
we could transfer about 50,000 of our sur
plus majority te Pennsylvania. But we
cannot believe that the citizens of the Key.
stone state, and especially the soldiers who
knew him well, will vote against their own
here, and for the Ohie man, who left the
front, when danger threatened, te take a
safe seat in Congress. We de net believe
that you will need any help from us te
carry your state for the General who led
his divlsen te Gettysburg, the Wilderness
and Petersburg, and against the General
who led himself back te a soft place in
Congress, iu order that he might be
come an officer of the Credit Mebilier.
It seems incredible that the intelligent
people of Pennsylvania should condone
fraud reward one who was most deeply
implicated, support a corrupt "party of
stalwarts " in their crusade against the
prosperity and the liberties of the country,
rather that give their support te a man of
sta;nless character te priuciples that are
elder than the government itself, and te a
party that will protect the rights of the
states, the freedom of the citizen and
honestly administer public affairs. The
election of Gen. Hancock depends greatly
en Pennsylvania. Let him net be slaugh
tered in the house of his friends.
But enough of politics. We Alabami
ans are prospering, and, most certainly,
will continue te prosper, let the De
mocracy triumph, or the Radicals retain
power. The health of the people is ex
ce'leut. Our schools are imprev'ng and
are being better attended. Every year
mere small farms are brought into culti
vation, and the amount of agricultural
products increases. This year's crop is
net a geed one. Cotten is small and
backward. The corn has been injured by
dry weather and eats have suffered from
rust. Yet we wi'l net starve, and Christ
mas will be welcomed by a people,
blessed with peace, geed laws honestly
administered, and with plenty of the nec
essaries, if net of the luxuries of life
Crime has almost ceased. It is seldom
that a serious violation of law is heard of.
Property is increasing in value. Laber is
regulating itself. The negre has ceased te
be a source of uneasiness, and is becoming
mere settled hi his habits, and mere useful
iu the euly place he seems te have any
fancy fe, or any capacity te fll' the cot
ton field. The census will show a large
increase in population, iu the value of per
sonal property, and in manufactures and
in mineral products. With this material
piegress there is everywhere a slew but
certain change going en in the habits and
opinions of the people. We are beginning
te feel mere interest iu public affairs, as
was evidenced th's year by the attendance
at the piimary elections, the action of the
conventions and the excellent choice of
candidates. While there is no enthusiasm
the determination te vote in August and
in November is fixed and unanimous. We
arc becoming mere tolerant of opposition,
mere liberal in all our ideas, and, being no
longer Bourbons, we are forgetting much
and learning mauy things. Te this slew
revolution we leek hopefully ibi regaining
the pride, the power and the in
fluence which this great common
wealth ought te have in the council of the
Union. Iu this cffeit, the national Demo
cracy can help us. Upen them, and their
success in the Northern states the victory
of the pa.ty depends. "We can only
stand and wait," with the confident belief
that the defeat will be mere disabtereus te
you than te us ; for our plundering carpet
baggers are gene, but you have your
Camcrens, Quays, and "the addition,
division and silence " gang te overthrew
your liberties, prostitute your judiciary
anil rob your people. Wc, who are of
Pennsylvania Uncage, expect the Keystone
state te de her duty, and that means

Running a Newspaper.
Hew Colonel Bagshot's Assistant Did It.
Colonel Bagshot runs a weekly news
paper called the Union up in Cheduuk.
Recently the colonel was called away te
New Yerk en business, leaving the Union
in the hands of an assistant who had been
iu his employ some little time.
New the colonel knew that said assist
ant had the check of a brass statue aud
the audacity of a New England fly, both
indispensible attributes of the newspaper
man-; but still, after being in the city
about a week, he began te grew uneasy,
aud telegraphed te Cheduuk :
Back came the answer from the U.iien,
whilem editor :
" Bully ! Circulation of the old thing's
gene up te a thousand. Been getting up
a red het paper, and there's a. gang out
side that arc weeping because they can't
heist a shingle oil" the reef and knock the
whole machine te atoms. Stay away as
long as you like."
Bagshot didn't wait a moment after re
ceiving this encouraging dispatch.
He started home en the first train, and
reached Chedunk before night.
The first man that struck him was the
"Loek, here, Colonel," he cried, excit
edly, " I've a geed notion te punch your
head, you brazen-faced old liar."
' Why?" asked Bagshot.
" Read that !" and the ticket agent
shoved a crumpled Union into his hand.
There was a paragraph marked as fol fel fol
eows: " Railroad News The bandy legged
idiot who robs the railroad company at
this village has purchased a new pocket

" I don't care whose work it is," grow! grew!
ed the agent, " but if it ain't contradicted
somebody's get te die ; that's all."
Bagshot didn't reply, but sailed down
the street te the Union office.
He hadn't gene half a block before he
collided with Deacon Marsh.
The deacon seized him by the shoulder
and exclaimed :
' What de j'eu mean, Bagshot, by in
serting that scandalously untrue item
"Didn't insert any item," replied the
" Don't sneak out of it in that way. Yeu

I went te bed at seven o'clock with a rag

"It's that reckless feel whom I left in

voice, "this is villainous! It's my intention

tattered old beggar, who hid in an oyster

with a baked apple."
" I can't help it, Bliin " said Bagshot,
wiping his forehead, " its owing te that

time he reached the postefficc, old Parker

"Hew have you the cheek te ask hew ?

Of course Bagshot bad te explain, and

Hardly had he done se before young

But Bagshot didn't step te hear it.
He lie w across the square and into the
Union office like a flash.
Ne one was there. That able assistant
editor, wanted by friends unknown, had
dusted forever. Lying en the desk was a
Union fe'ded se that this notice caught

selves if the colonel does net disgia?e his

Bagshot never intends te employ auether
assistant editor, aud journalists iu search
of a situation will find it healthy te keep
away from him.
