WASHINGTON, July 15, 1868.
Fifteen Mississippi radicals, Including
Mr. Eggleston, defeated candidate for Gov
ernor, appeared before the Reconstruction
Committee this morning, demanding the
exclusion from count the votes on the Con
stitution of Rankin, Chickasaw, Marshall,

ties. By this means they expect to carry
the Constitution and elect Radical State of-"
fibersand Congresamen. The reason they
allege is:that terror reigned In those coun
ties. They ask Congress to declare Missis
sippi reconstructed and entitled to readmis-
Mon to Congress. Among the fifteen sev
eral were northern and western men.
