Rebel Illustration Scenes When Seymour is Elected.
LFrom the Independent Monitor, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, September 1, 16'13.3
A Prospective Scene in the City of Oaks . , 4th of March, 1 869.
"Hang, curs, hang ! * * Their complexion is perfect gallows.
Stand fast, good fate, to thesr hanging ! * * * * If they be not born to be
hanged, our ma,. is miserable."
The above cut represents the fate in store for those great pests of Southern society—the
carpet-bagger and scalawag if found in Dixie's land after the break of day on the 4th of
March next.
The genus carpet-baggeri
s a man with a lank bead of dry hair, a lank stomach and
long legs, club knees and splay feet, dried legs and lank jaws, with eyes like a fish and
mouth like a shark. Add to this a habit of sneaking and dodging about in unknown
places—habiting with negroes in dark dens and back streets—a look like a hound and
the smell of a polecat.
Words are wanting to do full justice to the genus scalawag. He is a car with a con
tracted head, downward look, slinking and uneasy gait; sleeps in the woods, like old.
Crossland, at the bare idea of a Ku-Klux raid.
Our scalawag is the local leper of the community. Unlike the • carpet-bagger, he is)a
native, which is so much the worse. Once he was respected in his circle; his head was
level, and he would look his neighbor in the face. Now, possessed of the itch of otliCe
and the salt rheum of Radicalism, he is a mangy dog, slinking rarough the alleys, hunt
ing the Governor's office, defiling, with tobacco juice, the steps of the Capitol, stretching
his lnzy carcass in the sun on the square, or the benches of the Mayor's Court.
He waiteth for the troubling of the politicaLwaters, to the end that he may step in and
be healed of the itch by the ointment of office. For office he "bums,' ;asa toper "bums"
for the satisfying dram. For office, yet in prospective, he hath barter&l respectability
hath ahanclonded business and ceased to labor with his hands, but employs his feet kick
ing out boot-heels against lamp-post and corner-curb, while discussing the question of
tiff ce.
It requires no seer, to fortell the inevitable events that are to result from the.coining fall
election throughout the Southern States.
The, unprecedented action is moving onward with the swiftness of a velocipede, with
the violence of a tornado, and with the crash of an avalanche, sweeping negroism frdm.
the face of the earth.
Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of Alabama who have recently become squatter
sovereigns, carpet-bags in hand, and they filled with dirty electioneering doruments
And twenty times woe to those so-called Southrons who have turned their narrow heads,.
infinitesimal hearts and filthy hands against the land of their nativity I
Hereafter when future generations shall contemplate the fate that these white-skinned.
wretches had in store for U 9, they will wonder at the extraordinary degree of forbearance
manifested brus of the .present dark day. ,
But the happy day of reckoning with these white-cuticle scoundrels appmeheth rapidly.
Each and every one who has so unblushingly essayed to lower the Cancassian top, degree
even below the African race, will be, regarded as hotis sot( gelteris, and be dealt with ac
cordingly, if found hereabout when the time is ripe for action. -
The carpet-bagger already begins to sniff the coming ill-wind, and is sneaking out of the
country a/a Harrington, of Mobile. But we hope some boreal stragglers may be left far
from their "hums," to swing alongside of their meridianal coadjutors in infamy. I
We candidly beieve that the picture given to our readers ut supra, correctly represents
the attitude and altitude of all foreign and domestic foes of our land who shall have the
folly to remain "down South" after the ides of March. The contract for hanging will be
given to the negro, who, having mounted the carpet-bagger and scalawag on the mule
that he didn't draw at the elections, will tie them to a limb, and leading the said mule
from under them, over the forty acres of ground that he also didn't get, will leave the
vegabonds high in mid air, a feast for anthropophagous vermin.
P. S.—lt will be seen that tbere is room left on the limb for the suspension of any bad.

Our town has, ever since -tbe departure

and forlorn appearance: . . Those -fellows
kept us somewhat alive, by their many ac
of invasion upon our 'rights; and so mutt
were the bumps of combatiyeness of our
people kept swelled by their flagrant out
rages and atrocious insults, - that scarcely a
day passed when It could be truly said,
"there' s nobody hurt." -Nolo, the angry
passion' seem to have subsided.
