the same d. d nigger liu nlltiz wuz,
and nothing more. Tliu nigger stinks
cz ttv yoro, and in that sign we conker.
For the guidance ttv the Democrasy
North I wood say that we hev com
menced ourcampane. We are jist now
engaged in lixitt the niggers in our
midst, so we can hold him up next
year or. a nwful example nfoie nn ns
Intituled world. We hev organised

thro the other Slates ez rapidly ez pos
fiihte, leagues of property-owners lor
their protection in the matter nv labor.
We hev agreed, nnd wu moottially
pledgu tu each other, our words nnd
sacred honors suthin ez folic is:
I. No nigger slid he permitted, un
der any pretext whatever, to lease or
liny nny ground whatsoever.
2. No nigger slid be employed upon
any plautasheit oiilesHhekinshowirom
his last employer n ccrtilikil setting
forth: I. That' hoi humble. 'J. That
he can't read .'I. That he regards it ez
his tlooty, under tliu decree ttv n just
Providence, to take whatever in set
afore him, humbly nnd without tuiir
miiiiii. .'I. Noniguershelbeemployeil ceptin
upon the followiu terms: Able-bodied
males, $8 per month ; able-bodied fe-
! mult, SO tier month. Where thev
hev bin married by ehaplins ttv nigger

cnnideied nv noakouut. Supplies on
to wteh they live shel, in nil caes, be
furnisht by tho employer, the price
wich he fixes thereon to he deducted
front their wages. Should they gil in
debt to their employer for supplies il i
evpiessly understood that they she!
hev the privilege nv winking it out.
We ninl so cruel . to ask that they
shi'l pay in money.
It Imi'i expect id that many nv em
will take service on these terms. Wat
follows? It is oIimis in the moil ordi
nary lutellick! They'll starve! Hal
Icloogy! They'll starve! Slarviu,
they'll nl tempi to take a livin by force;
we shel appeal to the Government for

be no ditlictilty in hriugi'i uv em to

command, wu think thcie will bo no
trouble in bitstin the conspiracies that
will follow, and supprcsinnny uprNins
that may occur. Wu hel hold em
with a firm hand, may possibly com
mence onto cm afore they rise.
Then will the cfleck be made plain
tu you. Tho people uv Kentucky will
pint to the corpsis uv them wich me
strewed along the road sides, dead uv
starvation and exposure, and exclaim
sopiilcrally to the Abishuit ' Heboid

he wuz oiiginally intended, and wuz
cared for by kind masters, it wuz not
thus!" Many o( them will die, but
wnt is the lives uv n thousand, more or
less, niggers when compared with u
I would recommend similar strategy
in tliu North, The nigger must bo
stirred up with ft long pole, nnd the
pint mtut he sharpened. In localities
where yoo hev niggers, let outrages
by em bo enmtnenst to wunst. Let
rapes by niggers upon defenceless
white wimmin become alarmingly fre
quent. Her niggers decoy white chil
dren into nnlrckeiited places nnd mur
der cm, choppin 'cm up into ininco '
pieces. It woultl uo well to nev occa
sionally, reel outrages, onto wich to

do not think that any fault can bo

In tho discipline ol the family. Most
parents nre far too careless n to what

and how they spend their lelsuru time.

sliders nftcrwnrtl, because even Immun
ity has to use cruel measures in the
hope of reforming him, ami then too
often fails. Society has criminals whero
it should bavu good member. In
overy easu of vicious nnd disorderly
habits being proved agninst n child
under foititot'ii years of age, the parent
or guardian is morally though not le
gally answerable, whenever criminal
negligence Is tho cause. Sot iety litis,
for yeais, tended toward leniency nnd
mild measiiies; but it is doubtful
whether tho acknowledged evils of
Puritan severity, great ns they were,
ever were so mischievous oh modem
laxity nnd Indulgence.
We do not believe in cruelty tn chil
dren; but wo do not think it safe to
entirely reverse thu maxim ol Solomon.
A wUo pure nt need never resort to un
due severity; hut will always exact
obedience, nnd villi feel the responsi
bility devolving upon ouo who hit, to
a great extent, tho charge of shaping
tho destiny of an immortal soul.
