Natchez Bulletin clipping

Text

There was held a railroad meeting in Raymond last week, at which James Lynch the colored preacher who was locked up in the calabouse some time ago for indulging in too much benzine, was chairman, and Charles Caldwell, a black bird of the same stripe, prepared the resolutions. Some white men were present who wanted to be negroes, but they had to take a back seat. The darkies of Hinds are awakening to their rights and want to monopolize the offices. It won't do, boys, the soul of your union league clubs is the carpet-bag and scalawags element. Do not throw them off, or you'll find yourselves adrift on an unknown sea.
