Wednesday, April 28, 1871.
The. surviving members of the old
Massachusetts Sixth Regiment recently
celebrated at Boston the anniversary
their march through Baltimore ten
years ago, by-a re-union,, public parade
and dinner.
Congress adjourned on i.he 20th inst.
The Kuklux and deficiency bills, as
agreed upon by the conference commit
tees, passed both Houses. They were
promptly - signed by the President; sup
are' therefore laws. The Senate w
conve,ne (At the IQth of May, 12y request

Week, as because he excels all of than
in debate. To' be a negro is bad enough
in the Sonth ;' but to be able at the same
time, is absolutely unpardonable.:-Tri.
The President yesterday issued his
proclamation calling the Senate togeth
eritr extra session on the 10th of May.
It is thought the Joint:High Commis
sion will have concluded its labors by
that time, and the Senate is called to
gether specially to consider its action.
A friend-met us on the street today
and asked us, " When are you going to
let this Kuklux matter rest'and attend
to affairs of general interest?"
Answer : When these lawless scoun
drels lot Union men rest, and attend to
pursuitsl—not before. So long
as a Northern man cannot go South to
seek a home, without being brought
under a system of terrorism that would
disgrace the worst days of Norman feu
dalism ; so long as an organization ex
ists that is bitterly opposed to the first
elements of Ulna democracy it professes ;
so long as blatant, uowhipped traitors,
aro rampant, while loyal men are sup
pressed, mobbed, shot and hung—so
long we shall not ]et this matter rest.—
So long as the South cherishes a hope
of re•enslaving—by peonage iAr the ap
prentice system--t h e freed en, w e
shall klep this matter before our read
ers. .When the South -shall have dis
solved her lawless organizations ; when
a eitiAtn of the United States is as free
and safe in a Southern as in a Northern
State; when free schools South are up
held and supported, while the, teachers
are respected and.protected,—then we
will let the matter rest—and not before.
, And if civil and political equality is
not a matter of "general interest"• to
tin. people 'of this country, will o u r
friend please indicate something that
We kike common sense, in, a speech
or elsewhere. We like reason and me
deration;and, in common w i th all
thinking men, we like to know all the
whys and wherefores of any important
measure that affects the national wel
fare ; consequently we like the speech
of John Pool in the Senate of the Uni
ted States. -
We have learned something from that
speech ; and believing there is far more
in it than in anything we can write, we
will give such extracts from it as We
have room for. On Mr. Sherman's res
olution directing tie Committee on the
Judiciary to report a bill for the pur
poso of authorizing the President and.
courts to execute the laws and protect
life and property, Senator Pool, of N.
Carolina, said
Mr. President, the gnestson before the Senate
now is caw that involves the peace of the coun
try as well at its material prosperity. It is ono
as to which every person who Brea in the South
and who has an interest in the Southern people,
must feel deeply-and keenly and must bo deeply
solloitious about. The condition of things there
was not brought about entirely by our own peo
ple, though they were the occasion , of it. Per
haps in ninny respects the condition llis a natural
ono; piirhaps in most respects it is oplo that might
have been foreseen; but whether it courd have
been in aSbance provided against, is altogether a
different question.
If the Government of the United States means
to have the fourteenth amendment, which embra
ces, as I understand it, the whole reconstruction
pdcy in substance, practically executed, tho time
has comp when the Government must say so, or
the Government must. remove the bone of con
tentwn and abandon that polioy, in order that
they way see what those people will then do.. f`
After referring to the testimony of
fered by the Investigating Committee,
and mentioning facts that he knew to
be correct as regards the existence and
lawlessness of the Kukiux Klan, Mr.
P; referitd to the charges in the minor
ity report, I. e., that negroes, in Ku
klux disguises, had committed 'Outra
ges, etc. Concerning these charges ho
Quid :
But, sir, there is another difficulty and another
trouble upon us in our local interests and in our
local safety, that must grow out of these disgui
sed, masked bands of marauders. That too has
occurred in one instance, and it has been seized
upon by every Kuklux, and every friend of the
Kuklux, and over partisan whose seal and
blindness has led him into palliation of their
etilnPS, for the purpose of throwing dust, cover
ing up and confusing tho truth as it is. I have
reteronce to what I may denominate bogus Ku
klux. That is to say, men who do not belong to
the roguhir order, and are not connected with it
in any respect, seeing that other men can put on
their disguises and whip and murder whomsoever
they pleazo and no punishment follow, may sup
pose that they, too, may pot on disguiser, and
,with itlipunity wreak their privato vengeance, or
stoat, or rob. Is anything more natural ?
' Why, sir, no matter who lives in a community
where these outrages aro perpetrated by the Klan,
what reetirity has hs ? Though he be in league
with the order himself, what security has be that
some villain, desiring his money or his life, may
not imitate the genuine Knklux, by going to his
house in the dead hours of the night in disguise,
supposing Unit the disguise carries with it impu
titv, tatid commit any crime? ' I have boon BUr• that more of this Ms it ot already occur
red, and I feel the most serious apprehension
that We shall soon see It multiplied a thousand
fold. In the county of Orange, one instance oc
curred which is proved before tho committee—it
Is the only one I know of' in the State—where a
band of colored men six in number, disguised
themselves by putting their shirts over their
heads, instead of the regular Kuklux disguise,
and, mimicking tho Kuklux - , went out and corn
witted depredations upon other colored men.
1V hat then occurred? That is the very tr% to
this whole subject. What occurred? The com
munity rose up. They had not done it when five
or six men had been hung in the county by gen
uine Knklux, and fifty og sixty scourged, and
whipped, and maimed. Then there had been no
rising up ; but when it was told around the neigh
borhund that six Kuklux had gone to a certain
locality and taken a colored' man out and whip
ped him- and taken sole of his property, of
course all the Kuklux knew that it was none of
their doings, that they hanot had such an or
der in their camp, that a mothing was wrong,
that somebody else was 'shimming to act in their
name, and the whole Klan rose up at once, and
thetNoor colored men found that not the dis
guiseut the organisation was 'the protection
agailis punishment. They aro now serving their
time n the penitentiary. There was no difficulty
in the world in convicting them. I
Regarding the political tenets of the
members of the Ruklux Mr. Pool re-
I do not believe Mutton will insist that any
others than Democrats belong to it, when they
save heard rho oath, which no man disputes,
produced in evidence before at least one court in
my State last summer, and bet9ro the oOmiuittee

"and that should any Radical or. negro ,impose

join an association and swear that ho would ;an

or opinions.". ,
It eounded'atrange to me that a Senator should
rise and show feeling, when,it was said that this
organization was composed of Democrats alone.
It warsomething so novel to me that I was sur
prised. Sir, It is a Democratic organisation, in
the interests of the Democratic party. It has
mind In it; . I might almost say statesmanship in,
its organizaion. They swear:, that they never
'will reveal who initiated them, that they never
will tell any of the secret's, that they will never
let it be known that they are min:gibers them
selves, that they will carry out the o rders of the
camp, that they will obey Atte cora ands of their
leaders, that they, will 'Finial; by order of the
camp, anyone who imposes, upon a member.—
That shows that there it system in this organiza
tion, that it was notignollant men who originat
.Now, air, , l ask !in all "candor what is to be
done? I come now es peeially to North arolitia
affairs; with which I 'desire to,deal. It was per!.
featly plain:that - there had b'een no conviction in
this State courts; Bbd set ;at first I doubted the
existence of the order. I did not think it possi
ble that such an order could exist. Afterward,
from men of respectability and 'Character, upon
whom I relied, I found _that I could no • longer
doubt the existence of it; and when the details
of these horrid crimes came in, I asked, very
naturally, "Where are' your judges, Where are
your solicitors, where are your sheriffs ?" I was
answered, "Tho sheriffs in Ajamance end some
other counties aro in the order;
the judges can
do nothing; the Pities are in the way
,; i _ve can
make no convictions."
Speaking of Gov. Hold_ en's. impeachment,' ho
stated that the Governor was not charged with
corruption. They did not dare to charge that.
He was charged only with the use of the military
and his , manner of using it in putting down the
Ku Klux, the arrest of certain men, and the re
fusal to obey the writ'of habeas corpus. And who
were they who so voted to disfratichise the Gov
ernor of North Carolina ? Eight of them certainly,
if not thirteen, were mon uho hold their seats
avowedly and withoOt denial in direct violation
of the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution
of the united States, which they have taken an
oath to support. No man will deny that eight
of those senators are under disability, and they
confess that they are. I know some myself who
were members of the Legislature before the war,
who were cloths of coutts before the war, men of
my acquaintance, and who were confederate
officers during the war, and who have never belin
relieved, and yet are now holding their seats in
the State senate, and it was by their votes that
tho Governor of State was deposed.
The most damaging part of the
so 'far as it affected the great democratic
party was where the speaker solemnly
charged that the gieat rebellion would
never have been e,Lered into, but for
the reiterated assurances of northern
democratic sympathy and ail. When
the war flagged at the south, and the
rebels were sorely pressed on all sides,
the most potent means that the south
ern leaders could use to keep the people
up to their bloody and ruinous work,
was the continued assurance of l the confederate
leaders that they had sympathy Irons the north
ern Democracy. I have files of their papers now
which I could show, but I will not take up the
time of the Senate t o do it, for no mein will deny
it. They teemed with promises that the groat
Northwest would rise up and, put down the
cursed Yankees in their °fro to overthrow the
South; that the Mississippi Ivor was the great
outlet to the Northwest, an that they would
never be willing to see that r vor in the bands of
an unfriendly power, and he co they were ready
to make favor with the c nfoderaoy. Names
were given—l do not know t at it would he im
proper to mention Mr. Vall ndigham and oth
ers—to encourage the ide that there was a
northern element that favore the rebellion, and
they turned upon southern }ion men and said,
"you hero are opposed to he independence of
tho confederacy nod your section, while these
northern men, as you see, 9 o rising to our sup.
port." That, too, was held up to the very last
hour. lam mentioning these things, Mr. Pres
ident, to thew you and to impress upon the Sen
ate what appliances were used through the war
and with what power they dperated.
After the war came reconstruition_
and the reconstruction acts.
But then came the first reconstruction not.
That did not produce the desired effect, it seems.
It was said in the Southern States—l have not
examined the record—that every Democrat in
Congress voted against it. We were told that
there was a great party being raised in tho
North ; that no :Tatter for the reconstruction
acts, there was to N!onorthern aid; the northern
Democrats were to coma to the rescue and save
us from tbo reconstruction policy.
On the 23d of ii arch 1867, the first supple
mentary reconstrudtion act was passed, Congress
still increasing In its stringency. It was passed
finally over tho veto of the President, with every
Democrat in both Houses, as I nap then assured
and believe now, voting against it.. That was
repeated encouragement to resistanke. I wish
Democratic Senators and Democrats everywhere
to see the wrong that they are doing to the
southern people, if they do not mean in the last
emergency to stand by them even if they should
again raise the flag of rebellion in order to resist
tho elevation of the nolored man to political ; and
civil equality as provided in the neonstriation
policy of Congress. • -
Again, sir, on the 19th of July, 18,67, there
was a second supplementary 'reconstruction act,
rd that, too, passed over the veto of the Presi
ent, and with every Democratic Senator and
member voting against it, as I was informed;
And if it is not so, I should like to be corrected.
The great body of Democratic party certainly
were held up to thd Southern people as being op.
nosed to it:
Again, on the 21st of January, 1868, a third
supplementary reconstruction act was passed.—
Every one could see the determination of Con
gress to put theis reconstruction policy upon the
Southern States. I looked upon it as madness
to undertake, to resist it. But, sir, the Democrats
i i
of the Southern States believed, from the act
of every Democratic member and Senator ot
lag against the measures, and from the assum ce
that the thin President of the United State as
on' their side and had the Northern Demodr cy
at his hack, that they could save the Southern .
country from them. That is the foundation of
all the hopes, of all the undertakings, of all the
combinations that have been raised or now exist
to prevent the practical operation of the four
teenth amendment and the reconstruction acts in
the Southern States. If there has been a murder
committed, if there has been a man or a woman
scourged, it can be traced to that very action and
to the encouragement that was given to resist by
force, if necessary, the operation of the recon
struction nat.,.
I understood the Senator from Delaware to
giro a slight
,iutimatinn of what was proposed by
his party. Ido not know , whether ho spoke by
authority of his party, but his declaration rang oa rs , and I road it afterward. no said,
" Why not leave thesn colored men freo to go hack
under tho ecallrel of tl_ir natural leaders, pho
have been kind to them?" I may not use bis
exact language, hut that is the substance of his
remark. Is that a plank in the Democratic plat.
form ? Is that what we are to understand as
being the object of rill this 7, Is that to . be the
issue in 1572? If it is, let us know it. " Left
free to go back !" What does "go back" moan?
It-may have to POMO ears a most unpleasant ring
of old slavery. "Go back under the control!"
What sort of control? They were "under the
control of their natural lenders" before the war.
I will not believe that the Senator moans that.—
But what sort of control does he mean ? I will
be liberal enough to believe that he means only
political control. The context would seem to
point to that as his meaning; but I do not like
the expression "go back." But be says "leave
thorn froo." That is the saving clause. Bat, sir,
"freo to go back." The Kuklux will shop with
what freedom they exercise the right "to go back
under the control of their natural leaders."
" Let them go back under the Control of their
natural loaders," and I imagine those "natural
leaders" will not quarrel with the fifteenth amend
ment. The land owners and old slave owners of
the South will .not quarrel with the fifteenth
amendment, if, in the place of casting one vote,
as they formerly did, they can march 'their hun—
dred colored men to the polls, to vote "under the
control of their natural leaders."
The question. that is now upon this nation, is
whether it will permit local violence to bo sub
stituted in the place of the Constitution and laws
of thii country'. And if the nation-4°es not
mean to proventit, if the nation does not mean
to have the amendinent enforced, in common hu
manity I want the nation to-say so. Do not de
ceive the colored men longer. Do not longer do-,
ceire those white men who have been standing
up to the laovetument, and standing up to the
rights of all American citizens, as declared in
the fourteenth amendment. But; air, if tho Go
vernment of the United States means to abandon
its policy, it ought to look well to the consequen
ces that must follow.. I shall not go into them.
I am not arguing that question ; but I warn Sen
ators that they may look well to the_ consequen
ces that aro to come.
If the Democrats do not mean to nullify the
"fourteenth amendment, if they do- not mean in
good faith to oppose the political and civil ele—
ivatlen of the colored race to equal rights with
the 'Whites, if they do not believe amyl haver the

The Kuklux bill is'still under collat.;

was amended by the Senate in. a man 7

This amendment the House,would .not

other objectionable amendment wa s
that of Mr. Sherman, making the coun
ties wherein Kuklux outrages occur re
sponsible for all consequent damages
and this the 'Senate insists on, while
the House is divided on it. A confer
ence committee is at, work remodeling
the bill, so as to make it acceptable to
both branches of Congress; but up to
this date, April 20th, nothing definite
has been decided on. However, the
bill is pretty certain to become a law in
some shape—vie do not care what,' so

LONDON, April 17,—The Times of to

"The case of the Alabama has always

politics. We hail the possible settle

will acquit England of responsibility
for the deeds of the Alabama."
The Times adds that the Alabama
