How Seymour got Southern Votes.`;
Seymours's majority in Georgia 1a46 242,'
and the most casual glance at the returns in -
detail shows that the majority Is the result
of systematic rebel terrorism. The great
bulk of the vote for Grant was in the cities. ;
and towns where thercwas military protec-
tion. Seymour's vote is nearly equal toga
,entire white registered vote of the State,
while itis evident that tens - of t housands of
Republicans were kept from the polls by in- H
timidation: In eleven counties Grind did
not receive a single vote. In another group
of eleven he got but eight3r-seven, and in
a.third but four hundred and ninety-eight..
Yet in those. thirty-three comities thß negro
registered vote is over 17,000, and exceeds
the white registered vote by 842. Of those
17,000 colored voters, less than .600 dared
depesit their ballot.
