Cn Saturday last. Mr. McKinlay, the
popular a^d impartial correspondent of
tho Cuarldston' Sens cf- Courier, was in
our midst, for the purpose of reporting
tuesday's doings. His excellent report,
ia the shape of a telegraphic dispatch to
tho IVews <?. Courier, wo publish "in an
other column. It is headed "Army in
Edgefield." Mr. McKinlay fd so gives
us very important information concern
ing the movements and sayings of Geh^
Roger, thc Fedoral Commander o? the
Department ot' the South.
To this report wo have but little to
add. In fact as wo attended closely upon
tho Radical meeting in tho Academy
grove, we were eye witness to but little
that transpired a'mong our coin patriots
upon the public square. At this meet
ing, Lawrence Cain presided. The lour
speakers were Smalls, tho colored Con
gressman : Fillebrown, a white carpet
bagger, who is Comptroller General
Dunn's chief clerk; Brayton, another
white carpet-bagger, resident in Aiken,
and Radical candidate for Solicitor in
this judicial circuit; and Hayne, the
colored Secretary of State, who is also
tho present nominee for that office.
Smalls is a dark brown, corpulent negro,
ol' excellent countenance, who spoke
strongly in behalf of his party, but re
spectfully and without bitterness. Fille
brown proved tobe simply ? most in
sufferable old twaddler, who confused
and bored the negroes beyond measure.
j Brayton ?sn flnr-iWhirrr^ m mi; who is
ovidently a very shrewd deraagogne. 12c
is a ready and a good speaker, and on
this occasion was moderate and cunti?os.
Hayne, born a:id bred in South Carolina,
has but little negro bl< od in him. and is
still quite young. He is almost perfect
ly white, and, like Smalls, is corpulent
and of excellent countenance. He is in
telligent and humorous. And, like
Smalls again, his speech was strongly
partisan, but without any particular ac
rimony. The two colored speakers-as
is always tho case-struck usas being far
more honest and kindly than tho two
whites. For malevolence and misrepre
sentation always cominead us to a white

Gen. Butler, who was standing near by,
wished io remove. Consequently the

very respectful terms, by the Chairman.

House on Thursday morning last, and,
after a boisterous, disorganized, r udder

J^prished nothing but tho nomination of
J Cain for the Senate. As regards the rest
of tho nominations they could in no
wise agrc-.\ and they finally concluded
to leave it to their Executive Committee
to appoint tho remainder of the ticket.
Tho said Committee, if we mistake not,
is present in our town to-day, Tuesday,
striving to accomplish this business.
The party is evidently much divided and
demoralized. McDevitt is in jail-where
ho ought to remain for the rest of bis
natural lifo-and they have no leader.

were arrested Thursday by Deputy Uni

The True Story of the Ellenton Riot.
The New York Herald has sent down
a reporter to Aiken for the espies-; pul
p?se of investigating and reporting the
Ellenton riot. This reporter isnot only
a sensible man, but-roust boone of-, ito
mense energy. His account, published
in tile Herald a few days "nacl:, makes a
truthful and splendid shov ing for thc
white people of Aiken, Edgefield and
Barnwell. It ? fall, minute, careful and
exhaustive, and bears upon ii i lace the
imprint of truth and accuracy.- There
is nothing to justify warrants by United
Slates commissioners or arrests by mar
shals, in the light of this document,
the programme of Corbin anti Chamber
lain is seen to bo wholly unwarranted
and infamous to the last degree.
And we would not be surprised if it
were this very document,- given to the
world by the Herald, that has frighten
ed Grant and caused him to put a bit in
Mr. Chamberlain's mouth-causing him
io weaken in the knees as regards theso
arrests in Aiken and Barnwell.
The State Fair in Columbia.
The opening of our annual S.ate Fail
in Columbia has been postponed from

unusual efforts are being mad;; to ren

the people of Edgefield, notwithstand

canvass, should undoubtedly take an
interest in the matter, and contribute,
by their presence, and by specimens of
their products and their industry, to the
success of the undertaking.

The second grand mistake that our lead

the North, of gradual emancipation with
Compensation. ' This compromise would

The dogma of Jefferson, that all men
are created free and equal, was adopted
from the licentious political philosophy
that obtained in France about the time of
the Declaration of the Independence oi
America. It has no truth in observation
or the laws of nature. In France their
idea of liberty is universal equality. Be
fore the law all citizens should enjoy
equality, but not equaliiy of position and
condition in society.
In the order ol' creation there is no
equality. Thc Caucasian, Mongol an,
Malay," Indian, Esquimaux and negro
are each superior in the order iu winch
they are named, and each dissimilar in ap

what it claims to be in theory, thc land of

second grand mistake of the would-b
statesmen of the North, was over-looking
the fact that was proclaimed, by the men
who formed the Constitution; that they
made this government u white man's gov
ernment. The original Constitution ex
cluded negroes and Indians from becoming
a part of the body politic, thus making it
a homogeneous govern me f.
The wisdom that they exhibited in this
exclusion of inferior races is shown by
contrast with the opposite action of those
who, in the year 1824, framed the Consti
tution of the Republic of the Quited
States of Mexico.
At that time Mexico was the equal of
the United Slates, in all of thc elements
of National greatnc-iS and prosperity ;
with a territory bounded by the Atlantic
and Pacific Ocean?, stretching from the
Sabine River to the Equator, with a coast
on the Pacific nearly four thousand miles
long, with a climate of great salubrity,
with a soil fruitful in the production of
cotton, coffee, sugar, corn, wheat, oats,
and all of the tropical fruits. A land
where " whispering hopes" were breathed
by the high bred Caslillian to the dark
eyed maiden of his choice, amidst orange
glove-; and lemon bowers; where, too, the
Indian wooed thc belle of the forest, in
the misty niaaes of the war-dance, and
the sooty breasted negro, mated with the
dark daughters of Africa, without the
formal and irksome bonds of matrimony.
Under the shadows of mellow moon
light they breathed an air perfumed by
the rose and magnolia, whose sensuous
undulations were alone disturbed by the
sweet trills of the meeking bird, all lived
for a time, in seeming happiness and bar
men)', upon the rich luxuriance of this
wonderful country. This magnificent
country, that had been touched w*lh such
partiality by the lavish hand of uatute,
adopted a constitution identical in form
and principle with that created in 17c>7 by
the framers of our Constitution. Thc
only difference between them was that
ihe Republic of the United Slates of
Mexico included in their constitution
whites, mestizoes, Indians and negroes, in
a common citizenship.
Fifty-two y ear j have pas-ed, the white
population has diminished to one-half of
their original numbers; they have now a
mongrel population that has inherited the
vices r f the different race3. In this short
period this Republic, by the adoption of a
Constitution at war with thc ordinances
of God and the laws of nature, has be
come a splendid wreck and a pitiable
ruin, which must servo ns a lesson for
those who would escape a similar demor
alization, corruption, degradation, and
Time alone will prove the e.Tect of
those, who from hatred, malice, revenge;
and a love of party supremacy, have
forced universal freedom and universal
suffrage upon a people who were unpre
pared for it, thereby duing an injustice to
the negro and committing a crime against
tho white people of the Repnblic. With
the reckless spirit of a M aclamo de Brin
villiers, they have infused tho poison of
four million slaves, suddenly set free, into
the blood of thirty-six million while peo
ple. For eight long yens, it bas festered
and rotted the hear^ of the, nation., A
powerful antjdotp ..mur.r-, be .svpplj-jd.fto

body politic : ; -f , . '?}> ; " .'.
G jve.Vii.0f: O.'P., Moiton*' in 1865, in Ins'
messages and speeches to thc. people!'of
Indiana, warned his party against this
suicidal policy. There has already set in
a reaction ia the minds of the peo
ple of the North against thia great
crime against nature and the laws
of good government. As an evidence
of it, President Grant has sent in a mes
sage to Congress, favoring a system of]
qualified suffrage to take effect in thc
year A. D. 1890. lt is t hc best" .thing he
has done since he has been in power and
is intended to reach this national evil.
God grant that it may do so, before the
poison converts the body politic into a
putrifying and dying monster.
Bot in leaving the ca! unities that affect
the National Government, I must consider
the misfortunes that now beset our State.
Little did I ever dream that ? should
see thc proud escutcheon of this State
dragged in thc dirt as it has been for the
last eight years, umler tho triomphal
chariots of thc carpet-bagger, negro'and
scalawag; tbe logical results of"the false
legislation of the Republican party.
This State is composed of gallant men,
and glorious women, thc splendid types
of the Cavalier and Huguenot, in whose
