Is it a myth or a stern reality ? We answer that it is a great and unconquerable organization It is not confined exclusively to any State or Territory of the American Union but has strength and form wherever the flag of the American Republic ia recognized as the emblem of constitutional liberty In some localities the organization is much more powerful than in others It is stronger in Kentucky than in any other State Tennessee next Missouri third Virginia fourth Maryland fifth and New York sixth There is not a departmentof the Federal Government of the army and navy that has not a potent membership Confederate and Federal soldiers Confederate and Federal Bailors alike vie in the objects and purposes of the organization There is not a leading daily newspaper throughout tbe entire country that has not their Ku-Klnx Therefore the Ku-Klnx is neither sectional nor partisan but eminently conservative and national in its organization and purposes White citizens of th United States can only become members of the Ku-Klnx Klan — Radicals infidels and negroes cannot become members of the Ku-Klnx Klan for the meaning of the term is a Circle of Friends the sole object of which is the perpetuity of cousti-tional liberty The organization of the Ku-Kiux Klan originated from a necessity — the result of Radical legislation and the foi mation of the aecret political orders of the “Loyal Lengne" and the “Grand Armv of the Republic” consequently the Ku-Klnx Klan is the effect of Radical despotism and injustice The Ku-Klux Klan was first organized ia Giles county Tennessee in August I860 and was an absolute necessity resulting from (the tyranny domination and aggression of the Brownlow Legislature The passage of the Shermau-Shellab&rger bill and supplements in the spring of 1867 gave the organization a new impetus throughout the 8outh The increase of the organization in the Northern and Western States and especially in the Pacific States from the 1st of November 1867 to the 1st of April 1868 has been beyond the expectations of its most ardeot friends The organization at this time numbers over seven hundred thousand members with as rapid additions as the public security may require The Know-Nothing parly was defeated and utterly destroyed by the National Democratic party without recourse to a counter secret organization for the main reason that the Koow-NothiDg party had not the control of the Federal Government and hence were unable to uphold their organization by the pnrse and sword Until recently however the Ku Klux Klan possessed the government and wielded its mighty powers They possess it to-day but only in name not in reality Let the tyrants of a mongrel and infamously corrupt party beware I Your party is but a shell The castle of Radicalism has been permeated and undermined by the white ant of tbe Ku-Klnx The Ku-Klux Klan is therefore a secret political organization the result of necessity the sole object of which ie to thwart Radicalism arrest negro domination in the South negro equality in the North perpetuate Ae Federal Union and preserve the Constitution as tha fathers made' it And whoever asserts to the contrary utters falsehood That the Ku-Klnx Klan have eecrets unknown to the uninitiated is not denied so have the ancient orders of Free Masonry Odd Fellowship and other secret order and societies but like Free Masonry and Odd Fellowship the objects and purposes of the Ku-Klux Klan have thus been for the first time officially promulgated The incredulous and guilty may carp and misrepresent but the wicked the ungodly and the perjured will soon feel the keen edge of the sickle and the invisible boring of (he white enL Let the coffin be closed Gabriel G G T & V The sea serpent of the Cumberland has swallowed the local

Specie Payments We copy as follows from the New York Tribune : Mr Lynch of Maine has pending in the Honse of Representatives a plan for gradually resuming specie payments Briefly stated it consists in issuing from tbt Treasury coupon bonds to the amount of $300000000 of denominations of $100 and npward bearing interest at four per cent payable quarterly in lawful money and making these and greenbacks reciprocally convertible into each other at the pleasure of the holder after the 1st of May next all United 8tates legal tender notes received by the United States lay $180000000 per year or 15000000 per month are to be retired and destroyed and in their stead notes psysble one year from date in coin are to be issued to all creditors to whom legal tenders have heretofore been paid By the 1 st of May 1869 $180000000 in coin notes would have taken the place of the present greenbacks having been paid out for salaries Government contracts currency interest and all expenses of the Government These notes will become due at the rate of half a million dollars a day daring the year 1869 and are to be redeemed in gold By repeating the same operation for 1869 and 1870 tbe whole issne of greenbacks now outstanding would have been converted into demand notes and would be redeemable in gold by May 1 1871 Mr Lynch aays he firmly believes that tbe presentation and redemption of the first $15000000 et these notes would so establish public confidence as to reduce the premium on gold to a nominal figure The difference between the plan aid that of immediate resumption is that it limits the amount of notes which can be presented to the Government for redemption to half a million dollars per day after one year from the 1st of May next As our gold receipts from customs amount to abont a third of a million per day it is thought that so gradual a run on tbe Treasury could be successfully met nntil tbe pnblic confidence had so far improved as to reduce the premium on gold to a nominal figure when specie payment w 041 Id be resumed by the backs and the people voluntarily Mr Lynch’s plan is one of the most thoughtful of the gradual plane of resumption yet advanced Explosion of Cosl Oil From the St Louis Republican One of the most distressing accidents we have been called npon to record for sometime past occurred yesterday morning at tbe house of Mr Clark No 2028 j Morgan street betweed Twentieth and Twenty-first etreets The occupants of the house were Mrs Clark and two daughters Mr Clark being absent at Chicago where ha is doing bnsinesB as a real estate agent At about 8 o'clock Mrs Clark told her yoilugest daughter Artkaus a girl of eight years to light the fire which she proceeded to do She went from the bedroom to the kitchen where after sotting the paper in the grate on fire she ponred some coal oil out of a gallon can upon it to make it burn more quickly While pouring it out the flames set fire to the oil in the can which exploded with a loud report The girl's dress was immediately in a blaze and her mother ran to her assistance She wrapped a blanket round her and succeeded in ex tinguishing the (lames but not before the daughter had received fatal injuries Her own clothing took fire while she was endeavoring to save her child and she was fearfully burned The report of the explosion and the screams of the mother and daughter startled the neighborhood and Mr John Harnett Mr Butts and some others rushed iu to see what was the matter A heart-rending spectaole awaited them The flamee were extin guished and Dr Cooper was sent for end came immediately and did all in his power te relieve the agony of the sufferers The girl however died at half-past eleven and the mother continues in a critical condition What makes the accident more deplorable is that tbe eldest daughter of Mrs Clark a girl of about sixteen is at present confined to her room by sickness and requires almost constant attention during the night Mr Clark has beeu telegraphed for to Chicago The shocking event created a profound sensation ia the neighborhood and will excite general sympathy- It furnishes another illustration of the care requisite in handling that dangerous explosive fluid now in such common use An Old Nan Bsaten with his owg Crutch From an Alabama paper “ How long wilt thou abuse our patience On Monday last we were in Jacksonville and witnessed a sight sickening and revolting in the extreme After the arrest of Judge Pope who was so feeble from ill-health that he oonld jcarcely walk aod as the guards were conducting him to jail an aged gray-haired man soafflicled with para lygis that he had not walked for years without tbe aid of crutches too outraged to cout&in himself cried out “Judge are they taking you to jail Well d — n me if I’d go with them” For this monstrous utterance a soldier made a tilt at hint with fixed bayonet- The choleric old man bestowed a shower of oaths on the soldier who tnrned away and left him His friends now coming np got the old gentleman in his bnggy and started ont of town with him Lieut Johnson commanding the post came np about this time and ordered the buggy stopped and arrested him As he was being conducted to jail he again cursed the lieutenant aid the guard and for this was beaten with his own crutch until it was broken over him I Another is breathing' the tainted atmosphere of tbe

statement of these facts j sblished both to Gen Me&de and the commaqdant at Montgomery and we call npon them in (he name of humanity to consider of them and if we have no political rights to respect

of General Grant by Grant's father heretofore published by instalments in tbe New York Ledger wae suddenly “choked off" by somebody— and rnmor said the choker was none other than Grant himself— who it was hinted began to be ashamed of its silliness It now turns oat however that rnmor was incorrect — a letter from Mr RoheA Bonner ( Ledger editor) to the Tribune stating tbaf: "General Grant had nothing whatever to do with the writing or the publication of the sketch of his early life written for the Ledger by his father The sketch was begun and finished before Gen Grant knew anything ahont it and appeared in the Ledger in full juBt as it came from the General’s father without the curtailment of a tingle word so that tke General could not have choked off the old gentleman as you assert"
