~ Auoilier Address From General
To the People of South Carolina.
The Board of Canvassers have, by
their unprecedented action to-day,
showu not only their contempt and
defiance ol' the Supreme Court of the
State, but their utter disregard cf
their own official integrity. While
the grave questions determining the
result of the recent election were
pending before the Supreme Court,
composed of three Judges belonging
to the Republican party, and in di
rect violation of the orders of this
tribunal, the Board hash-sued certifi
cates of election to the Republican
Presidential electors and to Republi
can State officers, and have refused
to give certificates to Democratic
members of the Legislature shown by
the returns of this same Board to
have baen elected in the counties of
Edgefield aud Laurens. This high
handed outrage is wei! calculated to
arouse the indignation of our long
sur?e ring people, but I assure them
that this daring and revolutionary
act of the Board can have no legal
force whatever. I appeal to you.
therefore, in 'the fullest confidence
that, thc appeal will not be unheeded,
ihat yen will maintain even under
that provocation your character as an
orderly and law-abiding people. Du
ring Mie past exciting canvass you
have studiously avoided even the
semblance of a purpose to dist.ui b the
?ublic peace or to-transgress the iaw.

stitutional government of the country,

ACTION OF THE CAPE MAY COMMIS
SIONERS ENDOBSED.-TUE OLIVE
BEANCH BEIGHTLY BLOOMS.
RICHMOND, YA., Nov. 22.-In the
conference of the Methodist Episco
pal Church South, to-day, a commit
tee was appointed to consider what
action would be appropriate on the
part of the conference in regard to
the results of the meeting between
the Comtnissiouers of the Methodist
Episcopal Church North and the Epis
copal Church South, held at Cape
May last August, submitted a report
recommending the adoption of the
following resolutions :
Resolved, That the adjustment so
unanimously and heartily effected by
the Commissioners is, in our opinion,
fair and honorable to both the con
tending parties, and should be hailed
with the liveliest satisfaction, and
with devout gratitude to Almighty
God, by all who desire the peace of
Zion and thc prosperity of Methodism.
Resolved, That we regard the ac
tion of the Commission in the prem
ises 33 an authoritative and final set
tlement of the question in issue and
binding upon ali the ministers and
members of the two churches repre
sented, and that we cordially acqui
esce in and will faithfully abide by
the same. The report also embraced |
a resolution expressing deep regret ?it
the death of Rev. E. fl* Myers, D.
D., Chairman of tue Commissioners
on Fraternity, to whom the Church
is largely indebted for the happy re
sults of the Cape May Conference.
Was It Not a Fair Ilcquesl ?
After thc State Canvassers of South
Carolina had aggregated p.nd declared
the vote according to the actual re
turns ou Saturday, as ordered by the
Supreme Court, Senator Gordon, re
quested that clerks might be permit
ted to copy at his expense the origi
nal figures irom which the canvassers
made up their count. Can any hon
est reason be given why this request
was denied ? The refusal was not,
indeed, absolute, as the canvassers
m ;de an intimation that it might be
c-inplied with on Monday. Senator
Gordon replied that the reason why
he wanted to copy them at once was
a fear that they might be changed
before Monday. He evidently sus
pected tha' the count was not in ac
corde ce with the original figures;
and he wished to tes: it before the
figures could be altered. The refusal
lochs too much as if the members of
the Board dared not submit the hon
esty of their count to so direct and
simple a test lest exposure .should
overtake them on tLe spot. If this
was not the motive of the refusal
what was it?-iV. )'. Herald.
"1 am willing to risk my reputa
tion aa a public man," wrote Edward
Hine to the Liverpool Mercury, "if
the worst case of small-pox cannot be
cured in three days, simply by thc
use of -cream of tartar. One ounce
of creat? jf tartar, dissolved int pint
of water,- drank at interval? when
cold, is a certain, never failing vrcc
dy. It has cured thousands, never
leaves a mark, never catiBes blindness
aud avoids tedious lingering." *
Could lt Be Doue?
The announcement that twelve o;
fifteen hundred troops have been con
centrated in Washington, taken ii
connection with the fact that the Re
publican leaders seem d?termin?e
lhat Governor Tilden shall not talc*
the seat to which he has been legall)
elected, cause many to ask if it b<
possible for General Grant to perpet
1 uate the rule of the party in power
j In the first place the manner oi
I bringing the soldiers to Washingtor
I was in itself suspicious. Two clays
bernie the troops reached Washington
a statement that they were coming
was telegraphed to a New York pa
per. The next day tue truth of this
dispatch was denied in the mo t posi
tive manner by the highest Govern
ment officials. To a reporter of the
World, President Grant, who is com
mander-in-chief of the armies, "caid
that he had issued no orders for a
concentration ol' troops: here,jL<ml in
quired ?n turn what occasion there
was for garrisoning Washington at
this time or in the immediate future
with any such force." " Gen. Sher
man also declared that lie knew of nc
orders having been issued to bring
troops tc Washington and seemed to
deprecate the unfortunate effect which
such statements might have upon the
country, lt is true, however, that
additional troops have been ordered
from Leavenworth to New Orleans
and to garrison duty performed by
some artillery companies before the
Indian campaign was reinforced."
To a correspondent of the Herald
the Secretary of War said: "There
was no truth in the report tkat sol
diers had been ordered to concentrate
at Washington, and that there was
no unusual movement of troops. Three
companies coming Eastward from
Kansas were being restored to posts
on the Atlantic seaboard, from which
they were taken to occupy posts on
the frontier which had been depleted
of troops to reinforce Generals Terry
and Crook in the campaign against
Sitting Bull last Summer."
" Prominent army and naval offi
cers said they had never heard such
a thing discussed, and laughed at the
idea." Yet in twenty-four hours af
ter these positive denials from three
officials, without the knowledge of at.
least one of whom no army move
ment can be made, the troops did ar
rive in Washington and are to be
kept there. It is now said they are
..odo "police duty at the capita!"
tue District government is a* very
weak affair, and there have already
been signs of turbulence. These are
the pretexts for their presence.
We do not believe that. Grant and
the Radical leaders dare attempt to
overthrow the Government by force.
We do not hink that the Republicans
or Centralists, for tue terms ara syn
onomcus, are as y et prepared iejaicb
i ?rep, ?ut if tu?y should um capt
Tr!* tl ie re Ts sonic reason lW'ocw^

petuation of the feilest frauds and
the grossest acts oi usurpation, the
Returning Boards of Lou.siana and
of Florida should give the electora!
jjapte of those Scales to the Republi
can candidate for thc Presidency
insuring him the one vote necessary
to his election ; that the Democratic
House should refuse to count thc
votes thus fraudulently obtained ;
that the Republican Senate should
count them and the presiding officer
of that body should proclaim Hayes
President of the United States; that
General Grant should say that by
reason of the action of the two Hous
es of Congress it was impossible to
determine who was elected and that
until the question was settled ic some
manner, he would hold over ; does
any one suppose his pretensions would
be resisted*' We do not believe they
would. A company of soldiers would
be more than enough for his purpose.
Not a blow would be struck. Who
woo hi do the fighting? Not the South.
"We have been obliged to bear so
much that we could afford to bear a
little more. Every Southern State
save one is in the hands of its own
people. We have become accustom
ed to negro suffrage and' cannot be
harmed by it. The Southern States
are in a better condition at this time
than they have been since 1S67. They
would h..ve Jes* perhaps to fear from
one mau power than from the desper
ate struggles of a party to regain its
lost supremacy. Not the North. The
North is for Radicalism and Central
ism. The Republicans have just car
ried every Western State but Indi
diana; every Eastern State but Con
necticut, Kaw York, New Jersey anu
Delaware. The timid men of the
country would deprecate v.rmed re
sistance ; the capitalists would sub
mit, rathec than imperil the-uunohey
bags, their stocks, their bonds; and
before the slow process of the Courts
could furnish a remedy for the usur
pation, Grant would be so firmly en
trenched in the White House that the
civil law could not dislodge him. .A
disputed Presidential election: char
ges of force and fraud made by both
parties; an irreconcilable difference
between the two Houses of Congress ;
a large force of regular soldiers at
the capita! ; a large section of the
Union made indifferent and apathetic
by oppression: thc other section tim
id by reason of its wealth; an influ
ential party in favor of a centralized
government ; a determined and un
scrupulous soldier at the head of the
j General Government-all these things
j furnish condition? which render the
j advent of the Man on Horseback not.
' a probability, perhaps, but certainly
' a possibility.

That majority of one un joint bid

Never to be Gotten Out Perhaps
Except in his Coffin*
The President has ordered all tho
troops ii: South Carolina to be sent to
Florida and Louisiana for the purpose
of sustaining the Radical canvassers
in those States in making false re
turns of the Presidential election !
He says in his proclamation that no
one is worthy of being President who
desires to obtain the ofliee by fraud.
His purpose is very likely to create
confusion in the Electoral College and
hold on to the presidency himself.
General Blair, who knew him well
and served under him a long time,
said if Grant got into the White
House, the American people would
never get him out until they took
him out in his collin ! He was very
anxious for thc nomination for the
third term. There is some deep vil
lainy contemplated by both Grant
and Chamberlain !
After all, it looks as if the Radi
cals would gain nothing by swindling
Mr. Tilden out of the votes of Loui
siana, South Carolina and Florida.
They have elected an ineligible Elec
tor in Vermont and another in Ore
gon, and it may turn out that ft blun
der lost them an Elector in Wiscon
sin. Besides all this, several of the
Electors turn out to iiave been ineli
gible because holding commission?.

The Next Congress. . ^
It is estimated that the Demo?r?f,i
will have a clear majority of from
twenty-ri ve to thirty members in the
next House of Representatives of the
United States Congress. This re'duc
ed majority is sufficient for ail pr?tf
tical purposes, and will have the g?xid
effect to prevent the evils which ari's
from overconfidence by reason of sue
a great majority as the Democrat
have in thc present House. Thei
will b . less absenteeism, one of_th<j
great evils in modern legislations
Every Democrat will be kept at lui?
post to watch tho movements of th
opposition and check their mischief
ons measures. This excess of confi
dence on the part of the Democratic:
majority in the present House o*
Representatives permitted the,p;^,
of tbe Scott-Lord resolution-,

In the United States Senate
are cvt this time forty-four Rep
cans and twenty-nine Democrats
There is no doubt that this majority
will be redtice'd at the sessions of thc
State Legislatures which are to elect
United States Senators during the
coming winter. In Mississippi Hon.
L. C?. C. Lamar, Democrat, hus al
ready been elected to succeed Sena
tor Alcorn, Republican. New Jersey ? j
has gone Democratic, and the new
Legislature of that State will eltcW}
Democratic successor to Sonato?- Fre-<, J

from South Carolina leave little doubt
that,the Legislature will have a Dem
ocratic majority of one or two'""on
joint ballot, th s securing a Demo
cratic Senator in place of Senator
Rubertsou, Republican, whose term
expires on thc- 4th of Mareil. ? The
Louisiana Legislature will elect a*
Democratic Senator to occupy the
seat from which Pinchback has been
rejected. This will give, certainly,
thirty-three Democratic Senators; the
Republican majority may be still fur
The Presidential Electors will meet
in the Capital of their respective
States the 1st Monday in December,j,,
to vote for President and Vice-Pivsi-;f ;
lieut. Their votes will then be sealed
up and sent to the President of the
United States Senate, who will open
and count them the 2nd Wednesday
in February, in the presence of both
houses of Congress, and declare who 11

STEALING A STATE.-The wretch
whom reconstruction foisted upon
Florida as Governor of the State, has
shown his intention of stealing that
State for Kayes. His recent action
renders it almost a certainty that he
wiil claim the right io canvass 'he

he does tii.i? ha
the St?ie TO
he is obeying instructions
is exceedingly simple. He proposes
to constitute himself a Returning
Board, and to issue-cortificates to the
men who, in his judgment, have Leen
elected, lt can safely be said in ad
vance, that, no matter what thc Dem
ocratic majority may be, he will de
clare that Hayes and Wheeler have
carried the State, and give to them
its four electoral votes. The State
has gene Democratic by sn honest
majority, and we must not be cheated
out of the victory.
The Democrats elected five out ol
the eight Solicito: 3, as follows: Fourth
circuit-W. W. Sellars; fifth circuit
John R. Abney; sixth circuit-T. C.
Gaston ;. seventh circuit-B. W.Bali;
eighth circuit-John S. CothraU.
THE TBOO?S WASHINGTON.
We hope nobody will lie awake of
nights over the gathering of troops
in washington. Four hundred sol
diers, chiefly artillerymen, are there.
They are under the immeiiiiiie com
mand of Genend Hancock, who re
ports to General Sherman, whose su
perior is the President. If ;mybody
imagines four hundred artillerymen,
commanded by uren like Hancock and
Sherman, under the order: of General
Grant, are dnngeion* to American
liberty, we advise him to move over
into Mexico for a quiet life. There
are people absurd enough to believe
anything in these days, but it is not
easy to understand why an American
citizen should he afraid of harm to
the constitution from such a force so
cjmmanded.-Ar. 1'. Herald.

Leaving out the negro vote we find
