SO?TII CAROLINA'S CENTENNIAL.
ADDRESS OF THE PALMETTO
INVITING CO-OPERATION IN THE CEN
TENNIAL CELEBBATION OF THE .
BATTLE OF FORT MOULTRIE,
JUNE 23, 1776.
The coming anniversary of the 28th
June, 1776, will complete a century
since that day when, in the harbor
of Charleston, a battle was fought
which the historian of the United
States has described as " the bright
morning star and harbinger of Ameri
can independence." ''It was (in his
language) an announcement :o the
other colonies of the existence of
South Carolina as a self-directing re
public-a message of brotherhood and
The Palmetto Guard, maintaining
the principles bequeathed to them by
the fathers of the Revolution of 1776,
reverting with honest pride to the
history of their corps, and cherishing
"with fond recollection the memory of
L their comrades who, in obedience to
[the call of their State, laid down their j
they can unite, with all irue
Ihearted Americans, in commemorat
fing the first victory gained in the
[struggle for independence. They,
therefore, propose, on the 2Sth June,
1876, to celebrate the one-hundredth
anniversary of that battle, so memo
rable in the annals of the State of
Soutn Carolina, eo potent in the in
fluence it had upon the thirteen colo
nies then preparing for the struggle
destined to take from Great Britain
control of them and their fortunes,
and to create a government, resting
upon the consent of the governed, of
free,Eovereign, and independentStates
' Worthy of remembrance by the
people of this State as is that battle,
and urgently appealing as do the
members of the Palmetto Guard to
the people of this State to unite with
them in the celebration of the return
[of the day on which it was fought,
do not intend to confine that
celebration to the people of this State
To regard it only as an incident of
Jtate history, is to take away its large
>roportions as an event of national
iportance, and to do injustice to the
gallant men who, on that day, made
iselvea worthy of a place in the
)istory of the whole country, of which
)ur State is a part.
It is, therefore, proposed that the
celebration on tho 2Sth June, 1876,
>f the battle of Fort Moultrie, on the
th June, 1776, shall be, as was the
>attle itself, " a message of brother
Ihood and union." To all, whether
o? the North or South, the East or
who cherish with feelings of
)ride and satisfaction the recollection
that and of every contest which
larked the progress cf the thirteen
ies to their political independ
ence, and the guaranty given in their
inal succ?s", for " life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness," there shall
>e in this forthcoming celebration a
?earty and generous welcome. And
f, as is wished for, there shall be, af
;r the lapse of a century (whatever
differences have existed during
that time), a renewal of the spirit
.hich animated those who accon>
)?8hed for us the great results of the
American Revolution-and that re
newal be exhibited on the spot where
the men of our State offered them
selves sacrifices for the principles they
asserted-rif all who now enjoy the
blessings secured by the men of that
Revolution shall transmit them to
who shall survive and succeed

To recall the* battle of Fort Moul
ie is to recall the memories of the
ion whose names will live in all time
jn honorable connection with it. Like
[he battle which they fought, they
belong to hietory. They were of this j bt
|>tate, but in fighting for their State ? ea
iey fought also for a principle, which I wi
iey claimed not for themselves and nf
leir State only, but for all who with ! ch
lem were willing to defend and do th
utle for life, liberty, and honor..

laws, our religion, and the liberties
of America do at this day devolve a
duty upon us for their protection, as
sacred as was the " duty in his day,
when that distinguished man declar
ed that the government which could
secure these great ends was one of
which "the consent of the ^people is
the origin, and their happiness the '
In that century so near to its close,
during which our government has ex
ercised its powers, there have been
divisions and differences ; and at a
recent period these assumed the large
proportions of that civil war which
convulsed every part of o'ur country.
All will hope that such a contest
will never again prise; and when re
membered, the lofty devotion of either
side to the convictions of duty, the
unsurpassed gallantry and heroism
with which each rallied around and
upbore the banner that symbolized
that faith, shall ever be recalled as
the proud heritage of a common coun
The civilized w^ld was amazed at
the vast resources, /inch that contest
exhibited, and wv ich showed that
they who then fought each other,
when in a common cause they would
fight together, would be confident
against "the world in arms."
A wise people, who live under one
government, and in all matters of na
tional interest find their welfare in
the protection which its power affords,
will give to it faithful obedience and
honest support. Let none seek to re
vive the dissensions of other days,
and perpetuate feelings of bitterness
and hale.--or prefer strife to quiet,
disorder to law. Let all rather make
?rcri?ice of passion and prejudice lo
|ecure the harmonious action of the
whole people of this widely extended
country in the restored bond of a
Constitutional Union. Let the hope
animate all, that the great heart of
the people of the United States will
beat responsive to the wish for an
"indestructible union" of "inde
structible States," which sha 1 guar
antee the citizen of every State alike
in the enjoyment of those inalienable
rights for which Moultrie fought and
Warren died. It was for this that
the men of this State fought, with no
other breastwork than their pens of
Palmetto logs on Sullivan's Island ;
and it is this which they have trans
mitted, as a trust to be preserved.
To all, therefore, whose sympathies
are in union with such principles as
animated the men of 177G, the Pal
metto Guard will give hearty wel
come at their approaching celebra
ron. And all such will gladly unite
in doing honor to the dav which in
our national calendar marks an event
so memorable in itself, and lor the
great result of which it was the har
To g.ither together on the very spot
where the battle was fought; tore
call the loDg and sultry day during
which the men stood at their guns;
Irom ail places, giving a view ot the
battle, were crowded together, watch
ing its progress with feelings the most
intense; to summon up the images ol'
the men who, within thc fort, knew
no fear, save that their powder might
not hold out; to recall Moultrie,cool
ly smoking his pipe, and giving his
orders, undismayed, for he was there
to repel the attack or die; he had
chosen his lot, and Motte and Horry
were his noble partners iu that lot ;
to mark the spot where Jasper spoke
those words, " Don't let us fight with
out a flag;" in which there was a
sentiment of far greater import than
was in the mind of the honest and4
bold soldier; and, under the inspira
tions which will then prevail, do hon
or to those who then did so much for
all who now live and enjoy the bless
ings they secured-will be an induce
ment which few can resist.
It is well for us to revert to those
days; to commune in the spirit of the
men of those times; to revive the
spirit with which they dared to do
all that gave liberty to the people of
these United States.
The differences which threatened
the Union are ended-settled, we
hope, now and forever. War, we
:rust, will not divide those whose
welfare is to be in peace with each
)ther. The first century of our po
itical existence is near its close. In
;he glorious reminiscences which ush
?red it in, let us seek to bury the de

Then if you sell for the currency ol
the world, it is well that you buy foi
the currency of the world alxo.
[Cheers.] Ido not mean that you
now have too much currency. I
think you have too little. [" That's
all right.'*] You have far lesa cur
rency now in active circulation per
capita than either Great Britain,Ger
many or France ;. far less than either,
and with the segregated character of
our population, with the habit 4?
preserving money for longer periooS
than those you could better bear more
rather than le?s. But then, on the
other hand, I say, let us avoid any
thing like a redundant currency ; for
a redundant currency will destroy
industry in any country. That I
may not be considei ed here as carry
ing on any part of the war between
tne silver or specie men and the pa
per men, for I do not intend to be a
partisan about anything, and, least of
all, do I intend to forage for either
side [cheers] ; but I say, if you tak?.
a specie currency, I cite yon to tb/
example of Spain. Spain when sh.
discovered her American colonies,
was the first of the States of Wes
tern Europe in manufactures ; th- (
finest manufacturers of steel, of siikh,
of broadcloths, and of many of the
articles of art. After the influx of
gold and ?ilver, Spain determined ta
have this thing that everybody wann
ed in abundance ; passed prohibitory
laws so that it was not be exporteo
and specie accumulated in Spain un
til it became in great excess ov<>?
every other portion of the world, ar.~
the consequence was, labor became
more dear and every article of manu
facture was cheaper in other coun
tries than it was in Spain. Then,
notwithstanding the prohibitory law,
the specie flowed out to buy what
men required, and after awhile it
came to pass that the specie had
goue, the industry had gone belore
the specie was lo3t, anti Spain has
remained poor among the nations of
the earth to this day. But the ad
vantage of a currency which is used
by the whole world, is that it oannot
be dammed up in any place. Where
ever it is in excess at auy one place
it will flow over to some place where
it is wanted ; and now let us see. Do
you ask me whether I think we can
resume specie payment on the first
of January, 1S79 V I say I have no
disposition the gainsay to wisdom
of Congress ; and if Congress v .
to declare that on the first day .
January, 1879, it should not be .

-that is the products which we can
not send abroad fall short of our im
ports about 52 millions That leavea
10 millions, and these 10 millions are
hardly enough to answer the de
mands of the arts, so that instead of
getting more ready, I believe, under
the present circumstances, tney will
be les-5 ready in 1S79 than they are
HOW THEN ARE WE TO BE PREPARED ?
I say, by the very method to which
I have referred. By increasing the
facilities of commerce, by enabling
the farmers of the valley to send out
twice as much as they have sent
heretofore and with three times as
much profit. The balance of trade
then accumulates the currency of
the world in the United States, and
this balance being thus accumula
ted, you have no difficulty in resvrn
ing specie payment whether "it is
in July or January. Mr. Webster
once said the 4th of July was a very
good day to do a certain thing. So
the 4th o'f July would be a very good
day to resume specie payment, if you
had the specie. [Laughter.]

THE SORT OF REVIVAL THAT IS
NEEDED.-The revival we need is not
only a revival of sounder scriptural
preaching, but a revival of true
Christian living. We have had quite
x surfeit of the religion which luxu
riates in the devout fervors of the
prayer meeting and the camp ground,
which sings eweet hymns and ap
plauds sweet sennous, and then goes
straight off to its money-grasping and
ita pleasure seeking, and its pander
ings to self and sin. God forbid that
we speak lightly of true spiritual
emotion. But the Christianity which
Christ demands is something deeper
than a song or a sermon or a sacra
ment. It is the holy and the humble
imitation of Himself.
The revival, then, which we need,
is a revival of the religion which

business and commerce from roguery
and rottenness would be a boon from
heaven. A revival which will bring
not only a Bible knowledge but a
Bible conscience to all is what the
land is dying for. The world's sorest
want to-day is more Christ-like men
and women. The preaching it needs

" MY PEOPLE."-HOW ridiculously
disgusting it has become to see and
heir every little whipper-snapper
who liold-? office of any kind writing
and talking about " my people !" This
vas not so in the better days of the
Republic; these eira ps wei? then Her
van's of the people. Now that they
consider themselves their masters,
they say " my people."
The only instance in which this
phrase can be used with any proprie
ty is as it occurs in the Bible. Jeho
vah says, " My people." He alone
has any right to say it. How ridicu
lous, then, for little "jumped up fel
?nws" to use the phrase !-Athens
In consequence of the indisposition
of Mr. Darwin, and the annoyances of
an ocean voyage, the Exposition go
rilla is not to be accompanied by a
lecture on the Descent of Man. The
magnificent feature is to stand alone,
and if the ^ectators fail to draw
their own conclusions it will be no
fault of his. The resemblance which
he bears to man would appear tar
more striking if he were to be placed
in the expositions of Chicago and
Cincinnati, but with a little study we
can appreciate him here some.
