THE SOUTHERN ELECTIONS!
TUE SAME SWEET STORY CON.
A Lovely Picture for Freemen - to
• Serra Voting to Alabama.
A correspondent of the Herald, writing
from Eufalila, Alabama, October ith,' shows
up the manner in which the election was
conducted in that part of the country on the
issue of "for a convention" or "against u con
vention." as provided in Sherman's bills fir
the reconstruction' of the Southern States.
"The loyal leagues, which are compoSed
mostly of negroes and a few white men most
generally known as "imported Radicals,"
controlled the poll's in the following manner:
On Monday night preceding the election the
freedmen collected near the town and camped
alongside the three roach above described,
where thdy kept uti during night boisterous
and riotous proceedicgs, discharging fire arms
and otherwise disturbing and distressing
those eitiiens whose - houSes were near those.
"About eight o'clock on Tuesday morning
they formed a military procession, several
hundred strong, with loaded gong and mus
kets, and a great many with pistols and,
knives strapped to their bodies, fully exposed
to view, marched into the town from the
three roads heretofore described, beating
drums and blowing in hollow canes and
reeds. So complete and perfect were their
plans of operation that the head of each col
num moved simultaneously into the square
from each one of .the three road approaches.
Here, without any seemingly pre-arranged
plan, they broke ranks and spread out gener
ally all around the court house and filled the
square all over. Their numbers were esti
mated at three thousand, Those who had
not registered were also in the' mass. In
these processions:l did not See a single white
man; but soon after getting into the square
a few of their own faith and order mixed
in anti commenced their congratulations.
In a short time after they.came into the town
they took possession of the court house and
the whole urea surrounding. A wagon con
taining a great bulk of regular army muskets
—I don't know how many—drawn by four
mules, was driven into the center of the
square and halted in front' f the court house,
the freedmen pressing and making way, for
its entrance, and quickly amain tilling in the
open space just behind it. "When I saw. this
wagon and muskets in it, enquired of a
freedman near me what it meant, and Was
informed in reply "that the colored folks was
gwine to hub de ekel rights," the English of
which was to control the election in their

"The loyal league has chapters oriconneils
all over the country, one in every neighbor-
hood ; and a freedman, whose correct infor
mation I cannot doubt, informed. Inc that
nearly every colored man in the county was
a member of it. The; President or 'King
bee" in each hive, by common consent seems
to have supreme control of the liberties and
persons of its members. As a proof of this,
one colored man, who had violated some or
der of the captain, Was tied up by the thumbs
and severely punished ; another bucked and i
whipped. This did not come under my own
observation, but is spoked of unreservedly
and frequently by many of the freedmen in
the presence of the whites, and there can be,
.no *Multi of its truth. The head-quarters
of die league in Barbour: county aro urdler
stood to be in Clayton.J The tickets to be
voted for were sent Out; on these roads by
couriers from head-quarters and placed in
the hands of all "the captains," who distribu
' ted them to their men., Every man, as he
marched into the town, Came with his ticket
in his hand. The officers maintained their
authority, and not a voter was permitted to
leave the ranks until .!they occupied the
square. The voting soon commenced, and a '
curious spectacle it was to behold this as
sembled mass of ignorance and brutality
casting„their first vote. Their stupidity at
times excited the risibilities of the registers
and clerks, Under the election order the
voter's name was to be found on the registry
,and checked off when he voted. Occasion
ally one whose turn had brought him tip to ff
the polls to vote, not understanding the
modus would stand gazing upon the registers 1
and clerks until one would ask him his name.
"Jake, sir," "Jake who?" "Jake King sir."
"What heat .do -you live in Jake ? Dun
know, sir, libs out in tic country." "Whose
neighborhood do you live in? "I Jibs by
Captain Johnson's mill." Thoelerk examines
the registry of the beat in which he happens
to know-Johnson's• mill is situated; and Jake
King's name is not to-be found among the
registered voters; whereupon he patiently re
quires of Jake the name of his old master.
"I used to belong to Mr. Williamson's 'state,
sir." The clerk now looks among the W's
and'finds the name of John Williamson, col
on...Ai, who forthwith votes the league ticket,
already in his hand, and is informed his name
is not Jake King, bat John Williamson.
The announcement strikes Jake as timuy,
when lie opens his monstrous black jaws,
up his thundering voice and laughs convul
sively till the whole court house trembles.
Very many of them, Hearn, had forgotten
their names, or. the names by which they
had regiatered—all of which. caused much
delay. I have heard and believe it true, that
one boy,' sixteen years old, toted for his
"daddy," who was sick and could not go to
the polls. I met a boy seventeen. years old,
who was once my slave, and asked him if he
had voted. II ereplied he had." Well, how's
'that? You are seventeen years old, for I raised
you and know your age." "Can't help it, sir ;
dun voted now, and I counts myself a man
I went twenty-one miles to Clayton to vote
for a convention, found I could not reach the
polls, and came away ,not voting. 1 believe
as many as one hundred white men did not
get a chance to vote, as the negroes so com
pletely disgusted them and so generally sur
rounded the polls. - -

race everywhere in the United States to have

capability seemed to be the things that were
to be shunned by the newly=enfmnebised in
making their electiops. Learning, experience,
integrity. and good standing in society were
in their eyes disreputable, and altogether
unsuitable for a member of the convention;
so they bunted for men who bad none of
these, and they found them. Never since
bodies politic were known, and laws framed
for the government, has there been. selected
a body of men so utterly devoid of character

wheh thlrDeputy k‘heritrot the comity, and
posse who 'went to his relief, came up with
him and drove off his assailants, he had been
taken from the road and was being drama
through the woods to a neighboring-ravine

clubs, knives, and pistols, were shouting
"Kill the d—dl negro rebel," "hang hirn t ''

colored man nained Daniel Ford, who voted
the Conservative ticket in this city, on Tues

of colored loyal leaguers, who threatened hint
with abolishment, and were only driven
away:by his dtx•laring that he ivould kill the

several times in the face, inflicting severe

one Harris, a colored surgeon attached to

himself close to where the colored people

NEGRO SUIMERACY THE nE!GTLT. — The
Radicals have carried the State. A Conven
tion is called bye' 30,000 majority, perhaps
more. The negroes have turned out as a gen
eral thing, while at least 2.1 per cent. of the
registered white voters have declined to vow.
In the etinuty of Albemarle, out of about
2,500 white voters, about six hundred have
hot voted. Judge Alexander Hives, a gen
tienlan known throughout the country, a
consistent Unionist in 1860-61,ffiroughout the
war, and since the war—a man who held out
for the Union when Unionism made his name
odious in all decent society, a gentleman who
has sacrificed his social ties to a political sen
timent—this man is beaten in this county for
the Convention by the united negro vote
against him. They preferred an ignorant
negro, James Taylor. and an ignorant and
obscure white man, C. L. Thompson, who
has gone over to the negroes, to Rives. The
Federal offieer s. here expostulated, made
speeches, in vain in behalf of Judge Rives,
who was also a regular nominee of a negro
county convention. The nev:oes have pos

Voting in Vityinia.—This is an enlightened
age, and we are a long way ahead of our
forefathers; as instance the_ mode of polling
the colored vote in this city. The vigilance
committee by some means procured a "check
ed" cony of the registration list, which show
ed to a man who had not voted. One of the
committee would look over the list and sec,
for example, "that Jack Jones, aged thirty
five years, living in Dood's lane, lived there
three years and a laborer," had not voted.
The committee man would then select a man
about thirty-five years, and tell him his name,
residence, how lung he. had lived there, and
occupation. Perhaps this same man had
voted under his real name in another ward ;
but no matter, he would take his ballot and
present himself at the window, answer the
questions put to the supposed Jack Jones,
hand in his ticket, and then withdraw from
that ward, perhaps to assume in another
the name, occupation and residence of some
other absent voter, whose age about corres
ponded with his own. And this the com
missioners could not detect, and of course
could not help, and there is no telling how
many times they were thus imposed upon
during the recent election. Under this state
of affairs ;t is apparent that it was of the
greatest importance to the colored voters to
register-as many names as possible, since it is
so easy to vote men whose age would corres
pond, and whb could be "posted" as to their
names, residence and .occupation. It Ire
happened, however, during the elec
bon:that the "substitute" would forget either
the "name," or the "residence." or the "length
of time" he had resided in the given locality,
and frequently the occupation, and then the
commissioners would • smell a mice" and
drive the substitute away. front the polls.—

NEGRO VOW:M.—The incidents of the late
election farce in this city will afford for a long
time to come subjects' of conversation and
discussion. They are at once tuatusinF, and
ludicrous, and alarming. One negro in the
crowd around the court house held up an in
dependent ticket, (printed on blue paper),
and cried out in a loud voiee: "No laud! no
mules ! no votes! slavery again !" Then,
holding up a red- ticket, he shouted out:
"Forty acres .of land ! a Mule ! freedom
votes! the equal of the white man !" And
apparently satisfied he put the red ticket in
the ballot box. Numbers of ncgroes brought
halters with them for the mules they confi
dently expeetOtt to get.
A crowd of inegrooa from the southern part
of the count were met at the rivet by au agent
of the Radicals here, who put in their hands
the red tickets, and told them they must not
16t anybody take.them away from them, as
each ticket was good fora piece of land. The
prior devils concluded if that was the fact
they bad better hold on to their tickets, and
speedily returned home to see where their
lots were located and enter upon possession.
One fellow, when his ticket was given him, ,
asked what he was to do with it. He was
told to put it in the box. "Is dat all?" he
queried. "Yes" "Nuthin more, narster?"
'No." "Is dat votin ?" "Yes." thought
