Addi ess to the voters of Edgefield Coun
ty, staber some of the considerations
that move the Conservative party of j
Edgefield County to vote for the Nomi
nees of the Independent wing of the Re
publican Party, for Governor and Lieu
tenant Governor, at the ensuing election,
in preference to the Nominees of the
Regular Republican party ; and they set
forth the following addrlSSs :
FELLOW CITIZENS: The Republican
Party of South Carolina having nomina
ted two tickets for Governor and Lieu
tenant Governor, and tho Conservative
Party in Convention assembled having j
deemed it best to make no nominations
for these offices; and having by Resolu
tion, recommended tho unanimous sup
port by the Conservative party of the
State, of the nominees of the Indepen
dent Republican party, and it being
deemed necessary that the people make j
a choice between the candidates, we do
earnestly aud respectfully recommend
to all good mon and true in the County
of Edgefield to turn out to the election
in November next, and cast their votes
for John T. Greou for Governor ;rvl frr
tained a good character for honesty and
2ndly. Because John T. Groen has
aorw?d-xtie~St?to both as Legislator and
Judgo with honesty, fidelity aud impar
tiality, and M. L. Delauy has at no time
been in anywise connected with tho out
rageous frauds that have bcou practiced
upon the State.
3rdly. Because the Independent Re
publicans have solicited the support of
the Conservatives, and have expressed a
willingness that tho Conservatives shall
bave a voice in the administration of the
affairs of the Government of the State.
4thlv. Because D. H. Chamberlain and
R. H.'Gleaves, are the nominees of that
wing of the Republican party identified
with and responsible for aU tho frauds,
corruption and nial-administration of the
State Government, which have brought
the State to ruin aud insolvency, and
caused the Republican party in the State
to stink in the nostrils of all good men
at the North and elsewhere, and im
posed upon the people of the State exor
bitant and unnecessary taxation to the
destruction of their material interests.
5thly. Because D. H. Chamberlain has,
by virtue of office, boon identified with
nearly all the heavy and outrageous
frauds that have boen perpetrated against
the State since reconstruction, and judg
ing of him by his course in the past, we
can havo no hope of amendment in tho
futujfo, with him as Governor.
tfthly. Because while the Independent
Republicans solicit our support, and
manifest a disposition to co-operate with
the ConservativcV to remedy existing
evilain the State'G?verhment, the Regu
lar Republican parry through their re
cognized organ, the Union-Herald, aud
their publiospeakers, denounce and villi
ry the Conservatives of the. State, and
especially Rifle Clnbs and Tax Unions.
For the reasons above stated and many
others not enumerated, we earnestly ap
peal to all good citizens of the County of
Edgefield to turn out io the election on
the third day of November next, as one
man, and cast thein votes for Hon. John
T. Green for Governor, and,for M. L. De
lany for Lieut. Governor.
In making this recommendation, as in
our opinion the best that can be done,
wodistinctlyannonnco that we make no
sacrifico or compromise of auy cherished

The Republican Convention ?ti Chatta
On Tuesday of last week, many leading
Radical politicians of the South-office
holders and office-seekers-met in Con
vention in Chattanooga. They spoke
much, lied more, and adjourned on Wed
nesday. Of this Convention the N. Y.
Herald writes as follows :
"The fact that the republican politi
cians of the Sooth liavo come together in
a convention shows that they are becom
ing amenable to public opinion. When
people assemble in a convention they in
vite criticism and observation, am! ouly
by criticism and observation can we bobe
to influence the new rulera of tho South.
The Warmoths, the Pinchuacks, and the
new crop of statesmen which has sprung
up out of tho ruins of the Hamptons and
the Breckiuridges, must learn that they
represent nothing, not even the cupidity
of their party. Barty cupidity goos far
iwith the Southern carpet Laggers, and in
(the presence of the revoit of the colored
men in Louisiana, of the revolt, flight and
I resignation of Busteed in Alabama, we
Ipan understand why there would be a con
tention. This body adjourned yesterday,
but with no wholesome result. Resolu
tions and an address were adopted charg
ing all the misfortunes of the South upun
fl the democrats. But we do not see that
Jany opinion was expressed as to Mosesism
"in * arolina, Kelloggism in Louisiana and
?Brooksism iu Arkansas-subjects upen
I which any statement from the ConventiW
???fuld have unusual in t?rest." . I

?p?-ed by it. The Chattanooga Southern
ivepubhean Convention on Ku Klux aud
White Leag^n atrocities comes too late

No EXCUSE FOR INACTION.-We hearti
ly agree with one of our contemporaries
n the upper part of the Slate, which has
ointedly said to the Constrvatives : "If
ou fail to give Greene and Kershaw a
learingr, and don't, go to the polls, then
top talking about reform and tiad repre
sentatives." We think that a man who
does not do his best now, should forever,
hereafter hold his peace, and will be for
ever hereafter ' tly held to blame if he
neglects the opportunities which tho pres
ent canvass offers. It is but a poorcon
solation to whine abou^UBtrf'9B^'>ai^rtB
rae^tr^TS^ndgone. Improve them,
make the most of them while they are
present. Even a Radical who, for per
sonal reasons, supports Mr. Chamberlain,
told us that he had never seen, in the
course of several years' observation of
things here, such a glorious opening for
tho honest and substantial people of the
State to improve its condition, credit and
good name.- -JPhamix.
HONEST GOVERNMENT.-What the peo
ple of South Carolina now need is honest
government'. Whatever may be said of j
him as the candidate of the honest gov
ernment party, on the score of objectiona
ble views in regard to the congressional
civil rights bill, it is admitted on all sides
that Judge Green is an honest man, and
will honestly and faithfully administer
the government of the State. "What South
Carolina wants is a cessation of stealing
by public offioials. Robbery of the public
treasury once arrested, moderate and tol
erable taxation follows as a matter of |
course. High taxes encourage peculations
and malfeasances in office. Corruption
in office encourages corrupt practices at
elections. In short, public corruption is
inconsistent with, and destructive of free
dom. The only way to secure an honest
government and to perpetuate freedom, is
to elect honest men to office.-Greenville

This will make the next Senate'stand
30 Democrats and Liberals to 43 Radicals.
Besides the six States mentioned which
will subtract from the Administration
stiength and add to the opposition forces,
there are others which give Senators to
the next Congress to fill the seats nov/
occupied by Democrats or Liberals. "Mis
souri will send a Democrat to succeed Mr.
Schurz. Delaware, Maryland, tind New
Jersey, will re-elect Democrats. Ohio has
already re-elected Mr. Thurman ; and
there is a fair prospect of New York elect
ing a Democrat to succeed Fenton. Not
withstanding the tricks by which the Re
publican party packed the Senato with
rottenborough Senators, the Democrats
make gains even' two years, and will
eventually win the Senate. The indica
tions now point to a Democratic House
also in the next Congress.-M.o:>'de Reg
