Gov. Scott's letter to the Spartanburg Commit
In the daily papers of last week ap
peared the respectful remonstrance of a
committee of gentlemen of Spartanburg,
to Gov. Scott, in relation to affairs at
Union. "While exempt from distur
bance of any kind themselves," the citi
zens of that district, "as citizens and
neighbors, feeling the obligations on
their part," addrus their petition to
Gov. Scott, in the hope that such steps
may be taken by him as will promote
and keep the peace of their sister district,
Union. The petition is lengthy and in
teresting, and gives the particulars of
the late difficulty, its grounds, &c., with
which our readers are already familiar,
therefore we do not deem it necessary to
fill our columns with it.
Gov. Scott in a still lengthier commu
nication answers "that he is pleased that
the citizens of that County are earnestly
desirous of peace, but regrets that it is
announced in the petition, that an 'at
tempt" at "violence" on the part of "any
evil-disposed blacks would be met by
short and sharp retribution."
Comment is scarcely necessary, the
citizens of Spartanburg as well as the
citizens of other districts, as men feeling
the issues at stake, could not have said
less in the face of circumstances, or until
the executive made some show of exerci
sing the authority vested in him. Gov,
Scott, says in answer to that portion fj
the petition which accuses ;IM of treat
ir; :te information relative to the Bates'
demonstration "with levity," that
"On the contrary, everything that
was reasonable and proper was done,
and done promptly. It is certainly true
that [ did not fully share in the fears of
civil disturbance which were felt by the
Committee. I had beard too often ex
parte-statements of the faults and sins of
political Qpponents, to give entire cre
dence to one side of a story till the other
had been shown, and I say this with no
desire or purpose of questioning the in
tegrity of the gentlemen of the Commit
tee. But I took immediate measures to
aseertain, by investigation, what the
real facts were. I issued an order to the
person above alluded to, as a "negro in
cendiary," to abstrain from all violations
of the hw, and I censured him for his
imprudent and inflammatory language.
The investigation made it evident that
while he bad said and done that which
was prejudicial to the preservation of
harmonious re'ations between the races,
he had committed, certainly at the time
when this investigation took place, no
overt act of an illegal character."
In coneiusion he says: "I shall leave
no eff'ort untried to maintain the peace..
I shall omit no effort to bring to justice
all offenders against the laws. I shall
make no political opinions a palliation
for violation of law. I shall conntenance
no armed organ izatons, unauthorized by
law, but shall do all in my power to
break them up, where they exist. But I
shall remember that my power is limi
ted, that it is only within the spherd
laid down by the Constitution and the
laws that I must act. Whatever is prop
er, lawful and right for me to do, to
maintain peace, secure life, liberty and
property, from the rude assaults of r-uf
fians of either race, and generally pro
mote the public welfare, will be prompt
Gov. Scott has been accorded credit
for "meritorious conduct" by many of
the State papers, and we are not dis
posed to disavow that he has done some
things which are creditable to him, but
it is evident to any one that the most of
his papers are studied efforts for party
purposes and written for tffect, at the
North. .This letter in particular. His
"peace efforts" are too one-sided to be
Apology is scarcely necessary for the
omission of our usual summary of the
hybrid concern, but still give as feasomi,
a want of room. Something had to go
overboard, and the preference was given
to the matter of least interest. Very
little of real interest more than the pas
sage -of the following bills was accom
plished. Bills to extend time for quali
fication of county officers; to amend an
act to authori'e a loan to redeem bills
receivable; to provide for temporary
magistrates ; to fix official bonds of cer

perpetuate the homestead, and the Blue
Ridge rail road bill. The most interest

A business letter from New Orleans
to a gentleman in Atlanta, referring to
to the political situation says:
"I am glad to inform you that I have
never known such a change in the colored
population as has taken place here in the

one sixth of the negro voters who will
vote the radical ticket in November, in
Louisiana and Mississippi."

young girls, dressed in red, white and

disabilities imposed, by reason of the

straining them from the exercise of the
elective franchise in South Carolina ;
and to publish the conclusion attained,
for the information of the people of the
State. The committee, in the discharge
of that duty, announce that they have
examined the subject, and beg to state :
1. That no such disabilities now exist
by or under the Acts of CoG;ress, known
as the Reconstruction Act, the State
having been officially declared to be in
2. That no such disabilities exist under
the so called amendment, known as the
fourteenth amendment to the Constitu

therein expressed having reference to
officeholding, and not to voting.
3. That no such disabilities exist by
the so-called State Constitution of 1868,
under which it is claimed that the State
has been reconstructed and restored to

citizens addressed them. At the close, a
club was organized, with but a few
members, it is true, but the piromiise of

there will be another meeting, and the
colored people are expected to attend in

REV. J. T. ZEALY.--The annobnce
ment that this gentleman has resigned
his pastorship of. the Baptist Church in
this town, and that he is forced by the
limited support afforded bin) by his
school, to seek anothier State, and a
wider and more prosperous field, will be
received with deep regret by his friends,
and the community generally. Mr.
Zealy, during his sho.rt residence in ogr
midst, has endeared himself to the pec
pIe by his gentle, unassuming manners,
and his great usefulnesse, not only in his
ministerial character, but as an instruc
tor of youth, and the severing of these
tics will give miuch sorrow, not only to
him, but to those with whom he has
been so intimately connected, in the
triple re.lation of pastor, teacher and
friend. We trust that he may find a
warmi and hearty welcome n here he
goes, that his earniest piety and eloquent
teachings, will be appreciated, and that
his spii-itual and temporal comfort's may
SBEAUTIFUL CAGE.-Promlinenlt on
the road leading from town towards the
Lutheran Coliege stands a very pretty
cottage, lately fitted up by--, a well
known and popular citizen, and made as
bright, comfortable and cozy as art
could make it. Every one will recognize
the place by its description, and the
passer by with a casual glance will mere
ly note the attractive outward adorning,
and will not, like us, look beyond the
portals and into the inner sanctuary.
There we behold our benedict friend,
"cribbed, cabined and confined," the
music of h;is heart still and silent, no
gentle wife to toucb the strings7(aot of
his purse,) but of his beart, no patter
of little feet to wake the echoes of that
still mansion, or clamber on the knees of
its lonely occupant, or ride horse on his
feet, or with sweet baby lisp say p)lease
pa 'candy.' Sad thought ! a beautiful
cage, attractive, bright, happily con
trived to make two people happy, but
lacking the one br'itparticular feature
to make it a paradise We sympathise
with our dear friendi, unadvisedly how
ever, for really we do not know whither,
he wishes a mate to. teIp occupy his
cage or not. We only think that he
should have. one, and give . vent to our
sympath.y through the lov'e wo bear him.
What a rare chance here, ladies ! Why

M. Boyd, a Local Preacher of the Newberry
Circuit, died September 4th, 1868.
She was born in the city of Columbia, Oec
tober 22nd, 1839, and was left whbout a
mother at 2} years of age. Was raised and
educated by her Aunt, Mrs. S. Cromer, who
is now a member of the family. Joined the
M. E. Church, South, in 1851. Married in
1854. And was happily converted to God in
1855 at the Rutherford.Camp Ground. Her
illness was short yet she was not confound
ed. Her faith was strong. And her hope
as an anchor to the soul, sure and steadfast.
She gave her father-in-law the Rev M. N.
Boyd, to understand that all was peace and
calm. And in a conversation with her hus
band on the morning of her death, abs.
I now trust wholly in Jesus. I go bs
our two little ones gone before. And
turning her bright eyes to her buund,
will you not bring the others with you. And
said she, if I am sent as a ministering spirit
to the heirs of salvation, I will come to you.
And when about to cross the river o ,
her husband asked her-if she ow.t91G of
any text of scripture appropriate to her pres,
ent feelings. 'he said with emphasis. "Ot
death where is thy sting." And thongb wea6.
she said there is atill another In the b&al.
of David. "lhough I walk throv thetalj
ley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil." Thus ended the life of this noble
She is gone, but has let a name fBigrit
with her many virtues, unaffected pweetness

change is one of inexpressible joy and nover
ending felicity. May we like her, en*r Into

who saved us from eternal death.
