Governor Scott's proclamatiop to his
fellow-citizens,."to refrai-.from, and dis
countenance all dtmonstations, whereby
the public peace may be endangerd,"
is s sweetly conservative document, and
to a certain class Is all right. The radi
cal party at the North no doubt think it
so; and that he is an upright and impar
tial Governor. But all are not so blind.
It is notoriously evident to Governor
Scott, that armed COLORED organizations
exist in various parts of the State, that
weekly drillings take place, and demon
strations of the most violent and incendi
ary character made, but, further than the
i<suing of this proclamation, nothing is
done. The villainous conduct of Union
Bates is well known to him, and is a most
favorable chance to show that "deter
mination to exert all the influence lie
possesses, and all the authority conferred
on him by the Constitution" to quell
such disorders. Why is Bates not ar
rested? How inconsistent. Come out
from behind the bush, Governor, and be
a white nian, or one of the other kind, at
once. Take up Bates, break up these
organizations. As the first citizen in the
State, with the most "authority and in
fluence," it, needs but a little prompt dt
cision on your part to prevent the pub
lic peace being endangered. Don't ask
your white -fellow-citizens to keep the
peace,-or refrain from violence, we are
doing that now.
White people,- good Democrats and
Conservatives, with wonderful unanimity,
are striving to avoid all acts which might
tend to disturb the general peace. Every
where are provocations made by the in
fernal Lost of scalawags, and the mis
guided negroes wh., blindly follow their
lead ; provocations sufficient to tempt re
tali,etion from any people less determined
than-the Southern people. But it is a.l
borne with patience, and acts of ' iolenct
which threaten the worst of con,equences
are submnitted to. And it should be so.
The advice, to hear with -patience,.hese
ills, uttered by the whole Southern prees
and by our public speakers'at all great
gatherings, is happily acted on. - Neve,
were a people-more united, to bear and
forbear, rather than bring about a c.Al
li,iote which would -result in the total de
siuciio)n of the black race. The ruin g
ctestruction of the negro is not in all tht
thoughts, and one of the greatest pr,oof
that we are their best frienpd. and men,
them-well is shtowJn in our patienlt for
b)ear-ance-towards them. The c<msisti t
patience, earnest adviice, and kind treat
nent are.having a good effect, an'd many
of these l.o)r deluded ones are beginning
O think for themselves, and forsake ai
party~which is only seeking their utter
ruin. But u-e must not be blinded .into
a faise security, f.,r there is serious dar
ger of a collisioii, arnd to avert it we must
be detei mined n.ot only in pudece, but
hilly prepared tor any issue that mna.
arise, an,d an, issue whie.h the .denmoninen-i
radical leaders s.em. bent on bringing
about. Anxions are we to avoid an i'.<ee
so disa.tous, and one which mu.,t briine
s&'heavy a penalty on the negro, but it
i-s beat that we be preipaced. H-ope fri
thebest, and use every means to preven-t
a cainstrophe, but prepare for the worst.
Such a conrsmay enforce the peace so
much. desired. -

- Deserved Compliment.
The Abbeville Press in noticing the
add"esses delivered on the occasion of the
grand democratic dettonstration in that
t' wn, payVS st tribuites to the Hon. T.
C. Perrin, Col. Haskell, Col. Thomas,
Gen. Kennedy, Gen. Garlington. Hon. J.
P. Reed, and Col. Aiken. We would
like to copy these justly complimentary
notices, but have not the roorm, and brief
lv notice the remarks made in reference
to our distinguished fellow-citizen, Gen.
Garlington. The Press says :
"We have before had the pleasure of
hearing General Garlington both before
the popular assembly and in the Legisla
tive hail, both in attack and defence,
both in the set-speech and the impromptu,
and have admired the ability and skill of
the self-possessed, self-reliant and prac
tised -orator. A fairer antagonist we
never saw ; one who would state an op
ponent's position as squarel' and clearly
as Charles James F.x would do, or as he
could do himself without curtailment and
without perversion, and then meet it full
breasted, as few but himself could do.
To say that his speech on the present oc
casion was in his best style is to pay it
no ordinary encomium. Solid massive ar
gument according to his wont, formed
the staple of the address, which was yet
illustrated by those figures of st:eech,
and emhelli-hed by those flowers of
l.oetry, and graces of rhetoric, w ich
beautify and adorn .without impairing its
strength, whilst the conlusi.ns of an ir
resistible logic were driven home to the
understanding, and the will, with a f"ree
and earnestness peculiarly his own. The
war-policy of the Radical party, its oh
jects and results-the RecQnstruction
policy of President Johi.son--and the
Congressional -plan of Reconstru-tion
were the three grand divisions of his
theme, upon which he expatiated at
length, and highly to the gratific-ation of
the large and intelligent audience."

Iatering from Georgia
Telegraphic dispatches in our ex
changes, from which we gather interest
ing items, state that the: negroes have
been expelled from the Georgia i.egi-ia
ture by a vote of 80 to 23, which un
sea(s twenty five. Four only ren ain
who.claim to be .white ; their case is to
be investigated. In the House a resolu
tion was adopted to nay the expelled ne
groes $9 per day to time of expulion,
and mileage one way. Of course the
negroes kicked against this action, and
tt.eir harangues during the progress of
so gracious a work were. full of venom
It is believed to be the programme
with the democrats to get all -ohjectiotna
ble persons from the Legislature, and
that expulsion will not be confined to
negro members, but be extended to
many whites u ho, it is charged, are not
eligible. The Democrats are very titter
against that class whom they term scala
wags and carpet-baggers, and are deter
mined to unseat all against whom char
ges are proven. It is now evident the
Democrats can do what they please in
the Legi,lature--the.radicals being entire
ly powerless in the lower House, and not
able to hold their own in the Senate.
Tie radical party in Georgia is rapidly
crumublitg to pieces. Day by day it he
comes weaker and weaker. Al-eady
three of the nine electors on the Grent

and declared for Seymour and Blair ; and
it is stated that one of the electors for
the State at large, Akerman, will in a

As to the threats of this committee,
~of course, it becomes uts all to take no
tice, attd to heed the ''tittnely warnting."
Bttt it may lie well for mue, soberly and
candidJy, to suggest that-it *ilbhe. a f a
tal day for the colored people, when they.
shall be induced to court an issue of
arms arid blood and fir-e with the white
people. For one, I shaill do all in tmy
powi er to avertthi. calamity ; and this I
know to be the sentiment of the party
with whom I am acting, and the gen.tle
men with wvhom I associate.
"In the natme of God we have set uzp
our batnners" and we seevk no violent
settlemenit of the issues that have been
sprung upon us. But let this "commit
tee of safety" understand that heneath
the velvet glwe' of honiest conciliation, is
the mailed hand.of power.; and that this
hatnd will be raised with r.egret, :but in
confidence, wheneve- it shall become(
necessary for the pro-tection .of families
