Some day the sun will be shining
On the rose trees and poppies in bloom:
And some day the moaning and pining
Will stoo at the door of a tomb.
Some day the heart's happy fullness
Will yield to reckonings of pain
Some day life's heaviness-dullness
Will drop from the poor fevered brain.
The strife and the toil, the defending,
The man at w.r with the few,
Must all on some day have an ending
The falae put away from the true.
Some day the dream will be broken,
Some day the veil will be rent down,
Some day the bitter words spoken,
When the bright ihings have faded and
Syme day the years will be going]
On, on, with new pledges-they must;
And some day the grass will be groring
O'er hearts then but pitiful dust.
But the sobbing, the moaning, and crying,
Or the storm, tho' it battle and rave,
Ne-er shall rouse us, so peacefully lying
So far from it all in the grave.
And done with all hoping and grieving,
The love and the hates pased away;
We shall joy to know we are leaving
Earth's empty possessions, some day.
BLOODY NEGRO RIOT IN SAVNNA a.-On
Monday last, there occurred in Savannah,
a murderous, bloody and disgraceful
iegro riot. The negroes, under special
instructions it is believed, from Radical
leaders, persistently tried, during Satur
day, Sunday and Monday, to force them
selves into the street cars reserved for
the whites. The negroes, as a general
thing ride but little upon the street cars,
and the object of their aggressions was
vcry plainly seen-an electioneering
Keheme of the Radicais.
On Monday evening, at 8 o'clock,
things came to a crisis by a mob of
armed negroes firing into the cars. And
hereupon ensued a scene of blood and
excitement which lasted almost through
the entire night. The negroes behaved
with blind ferocity. In one case a lady
and three children, sittirg on their
piazza, were fired upon and all four dan
gerously wounded. At latest accounts
from Augusta, the excitement had died
out and all was quiet.-Edgefield Adver

beat or whipped him most unmercifully.
They alleged that he had already slain
thirty negroes by his potent spells, and
swore that they would stop his opera

DEAR READER.-Agreeably to promise
to keep you advised of our journeying, it
and whatever of interest or incident com

sound of the bell which calls to breakfast .
and the irrepressible fried chicken. But a
first of the journey. We have been &
made acquainted with many griefs, have
suffered sorrows and endured pains, but
during the Friday and part of Saturday a
of last week, the time occupied in get

lation considerably exceeded f3rmer ex- t
periences. Only a few fortunate citizens t
had the pleasure of seeing

self, and traps, as it left in the cool of p
Thursday evening, July 25th, and per
haps they envied us, but they did not
see later, and towards nmght, a couple of
disgusted travellers looking at a cast tire,
grumbling at the luck and wondering if
it could be got back, and if so if another
would not fall off. Luckily the accident
happened near Mr. Geo. Sligh's our des

eleven o'cock, not a breath of air was

dare not allude to through fear of being
done for. The other, however, we feel
free to relate: it was about four o'clock,
we had just got over a two mile lane of
hot rocks, het atmosphere and hotter
sun, when a cool oasis came in sight, a
shady grove, a comfortable looking man
sion, and a pleasant~ looking gentleman
lounging on the outside. The mare
knowing our feelings stopped. A short
gossip ensued, na.tes were interchanged,
and other trifles which cost nothing,
when the question was asked if we could
get some water for beast arnd man. Well,
we blush to own it, but this pleasant
looking gentleman, lying back in the
shade, kindly informed us that his spring
from the house, arnd that as the branch
was just down there, pointing with his
inger, we could reach the latter much
quicker than his spring. We went for
that branch, over hill and dale, ruore
rocks, long, hot lanes, and continued to
go, and went on, and at length it was
reaced. It was fully two miles from
where that nice looking gentleman stood
out in the shady grove, near to his plea

2 DECLARES FOR GREELEY-GOOD ADVICE
TO THE COLORED .EoPI.a-GHANT'S AD
-dINISTRATION A VAILLE-A STRONO
WASnIsGTO, july 30.
Mr. Sumner has written a long letter
1o a number of colored citzens who late
ly addressed him. Mr. Sumner declares
for Greeley. Among his strongest para
raphs is the following:
"The present position of the colored
citizen is perilous. le is exposed to in
jurious pressure, when he needs support,
but I see no early extraction excet in
the way proposed. Let him cut adrift
from the managers who would wield him
merely as a political force, with little re
gard to his own good, and bravely stand
by the candidate, Greeley, who has
stood by himself. The Democrats unite
with him, so much the better. The as
sociation once begun must naturally
ripen in common friendship and tiust.
Ile addresses his correspondents as gen
tlemen and fellow-citizens. le says he
delayed answering that he might reflect
and freely inform himself, Ile has lis
tened to much from both sides, but his
best judgment is now in harmony with his
early conclusion. le is touched by the
appeal his correspondents made. He has
been the friend of their race, and is glad
they consider him the special advocate
of their rights. They do him ample jus
tice when they believe that his counsel
at this critical juncture would be free
from personal or partisan prejudice.
Mr. Sumner contrasts the two candi
dates. Greeley was born in poverty, and
educated bimself in a printing office.
Grant,fortunate in early patronage,became
a Cadet at West Point, and was educated
at the public expense. One started with
nothing but industry and char2cter ; the
other with a military commission. One
was trained as a civilian ; the other as a i
soldier. Horace Greeley stood forth as
a reformer and an Abolitionist. President
Grant enlisted as a pro-slavery Democrat,
and at the election of James Buchanan
fortified by his vote all th- pretensions
of slavery, even tile Dred Scott decision.
Greeley, from early life, was earnest and
constant against slavery, full of sympa
thy with the colored race, and always
foremost in the great battle for their I
rights. President Grant, except as a
soldier, summoned by the terrible acci
dent of war, never did anything against
slavery, nor has he at any time shown
any sympathy with the celored race.
Horace (reeley earnestly desired that
the colored citizen shculd vote, and ably
championed impartial suffrage; but Pres
ident Grant was on the other side. Be
yond these contrasts, which are marked,
it cannot be forgotten that Horace Gree
ley is a person of large heart and large
understanding and strived to support
human rights. Mr. Greeley's industry,
general knowledge, amiable nature, and
above all, honesty, which no suspicion
tias touched, are maintained. None of
these things appear in President Grant.
His great success in war cannot change
his record toward the colored people;
while there are antecedents showing that
in the prosecution of his plans he cared
nothing for the colored race.
Mr. Sumner prefacing that the story
is painful but it must be told gives the
history of Saint Domingo and Hayti,
where he outraged eight hundred thlous
and blacks, who were engaged in the
great experiment of self- government.
Here follows a history of attempted an
nexation. Hie alludes to the disrespect
with which Grant treated Fred DouglaRs,
who, by ipvitation, was one of the Saint
Domingo Commissioners. Grant has
little capacity or industry in protecting
colored people, and insuring peace at tbe
South. After violating the Constitution
and international law, to insult the black
Republic, and setting an example of in
subordination, he has not been in a con
dition to rebuke law-breakers.
Mr. Sumner then considers the present
position of the two candidates. Each
was nominated by a Republican Con
vention. He lauds the material compos
ing the Cincinnati Convention. Com
paring the character of the supporters of
the two candidates, he says the country
knows two well the Military and the
Senatorial Rings, the Custom House
Rings through which the President acts.
Such supporters are a very poor recomn
mendation. He says it is idle to say that
Horace Greeley and the Republicans who
nominated him at Cincinnati are any less
Republicans because the Democrats uni
ted with them in the support of cher
ished princi.ples, and the candidate who
Mr. Sumner says the hardihood of po
litical falsehood reaches its extreme
point w-hen it is asserted that under
Horace Greeley the freedmen will be re
enslaved, or that colored people will in
any way suffer in their equal rights ; on
the contrary they have in his election,
not only the promises of the platform,
but also the splendid example for a full
generation, during which he has never
wavered in the assertion of their rights.
To suppose that Horace Greeley when
placed where he can do the most good
will depart from the rule of his honest
life is an insult to reason. It is none
the less idle to suppose that Democrats
supporting Horace Greeley, expect or
desire that he should depart from those
principles which are the glory of his
character. They have accepted the Cin
cinnati platform with its two-fold promi
es,and intend in good faith to maintain it.
Gentlemen, in thus answering your
:wo inquiries, I have shown why you, as
coNred fellow-citizens, and also all who
would uphold your rights and save the
colored race from indignity, should re
fuse to sanction the re-election of the
President and put your trust in Horace
Greeley. I ought to add that with him
will be associated, as Vice-President, B.
Gratz Brown, whom I have known for
years as a most determined Abolitioni,t.
The two together will carry into the Na
tioe.G Government an unswerving devo
ton to your rights,not to be disturbed by
partisan, dictation or sectional pre.judice.
Besides, all this which may fitly guide
you in determining between the two-can
didates, it is my duty to remind you,
that as citizens of the UJnit'ed States, and
par t of the country, your welfare is in -
dissolubly associated with that of the
whole country, who while all are pros
perous, you will be gainers. Therefore,
while justly careful of your own rights,
you eannot be indifferent to the blessings
Iof good government. It is for vou to
e nnsider, whether the time has not conme
frsomething better than the sword, and
whether a character like Horace Greeley,
does not give stronger assurance of good
Goernment, than can be found in the in
suter of the colored race, already famous
for the r ings about him and his plain in
aptitude for civil life. Speaking now for
myself, I hav-e to say that my vote will be
given for Horace Greeley; but in giving
it, I do not go to the Democratic party,
nor am I any less a Republican ; on the
contrary, I am so much of a Republican
that I cannot support a candidate whose
conduct in civil life shows an incapaci
ty to appreciate Republican principles,
Iand whose .dmninistration is marked by
actr, of delinquency, especially toward
the colored race, by the side of which the

Change is the order of tihe day. The New
berry Hotel is again -uder the management
of its proprietor, Mr. . P. Pool. Another
change of far more importance and sign ifi
cance to the whole country, will soon take
place. When Mr. Grant's present lease of
the White llouse expires, he cannot renew
it. A new tenant better qualified to manage
that institution will be installed in his place.
Mr. Calcutt in retiring, has our best wishes
for his prosperity aiid happiness. We know
that he will succeed wherever lie goes.
t)f*Mr.(Grant when he retires, we can only
sa,'"reqluiescat in pace," though we doubt
very much if he can.
The political campaign is growing quit4
warm. On last Wednesday evening an en
thsiastic nmeting of ikepublicans was held
in front of the Court IHouse, and several
pecchies wcre made. One poor fellow, a whitd
man, as we are iinfornmed-not having had
the happiness to hear his remarks-being
completely carried away by his enthusiasm
cried out, "down with the white man and
up with the negro.'' We will not give his
name, as he may have father, mothet
or other relatives still living, who yet have a
lingering affec:ion for him: but it seerns to
us that any wiuT man who can say "down
with the white mar. and up with the negro,'
is low enough already to satisfy any reason
able ambition. But every man to his taste.
Why down with anybody? The air ad the
s-unshine, the rains anid the dews, arec free tc
eery one. The world is large enough foi
all; and why cannot all enjioy in peace the
good gifts so bountifully given to all? Can
not all rise together? Away with all such
damned nonsense, as down with anybody.
There's room enough for all, and all may be
free, and independent, and happy, if they
will. Let Greeley be elected, and peace,
harmony and prosperity will fill and crown
every city, town, village and hamlet, from
the Atlantic to the Pa&ci5c, and from Laine

'ETS.-Last Wednesday the "Cornets" took
be train for Greenwood, according to Sp- Fo
ointment, at which place wa6 held - meet- frC
ag, the obiect of which is, the building of a
ailroad from that place to Augusta. The ge
ieeting was a large one. Knowing what a Cc

lid not have a "fine" time. Our devil says lar

patiently for their next trip. which we learn
will be in a short time. Want o: space pla
vents a lengthier notice.
The first ho!cs have been lug and the first t
timber planted fron which is to sring our
future market house. From appearances ita
is to be a rather small affair. Such appear
ance to us may, however, be owing to our'
exalted imagination, which had pictured T
the whole vacant space between the Court T
House and Lake & Girurdeau's store, filed I
up with a magniticent structure of three or n
four stories, with fire engine and hose de- i
oartment, council hall, offices, reading ha
rooms, lyceum, calaboose, and other cdu- a
cational establishments. Well, there is no- t
thing spoiled. The unoccupied space wont
be stolen, and remains for future use. Rome
was not built in one day, although Hamburg
was; but then Rome is still alive, and Ham- I
burg-where is she? I
OUR BANDS.--Our cornets are des,ned to P
become the famous band of the State. They
nerformed at Greenwcod on last Thursday,
to the great delight of the assembled thou
sands. We hope that they will become a
permanent institution. Professor Ollever
deserves praise for liaving in so short a d
time brought them up to such a state of
proficieney. They cannot, however, sleep
on a bed of roses; the Independents are en- a
dowed with marvellous perseverance; and
practice, as is well known, makes pe0ect.
The colored band, led by their indefatigable
maestro-Prof. Davis-are making rapid r
progress, and haviug some members of ex- 0,
cellent musical talent, will be formidable ri- 8
vals. Let the rivalry be a friendly one, and
let the big horn look to his laurels. Police
man G-- is a fue tooter, and not to be
sneezed at. A cornet is about the best use
brass can be put to, and the taking of horns
of brass may keep some of our young men
from taking too many horns of--rye.
TnE "PupPY" ScnuRz.-We are inform- a
ed that at a political meeting last - night s
Judge Hoge spoke of Senator Schurz as a
red-whiskered Dutch puppy. As to the "red- i
whiskered" we would remark that there is f
no accounting for tastes; the Edit)r feels a
little touchy on the subject, and therefore
ventures no further obse,vations. Let the
'Dutch' pass for a snarl; but as to the 'puppy'
part we would say that the self-same puppy
has barked so loadly and effectively as to
arouse the whole household (the American E
people' so as to have them fully prepared to
keep robbers and thieves away from their
premises. It is even believed by some peo
ple, that the self-same puppy once or twice
snapped successfully at the Chief's calves,
and made the blood come, not to speak of
the damage done to his nether garments.
if the "puppy" has shown himself so staunch
whtma. not be expected from the full
grown dog ?
We would add that the colored band,
doubtless overcome by the heat and the
coiemnity of the occasion, did not perform
quite so well as usual. Still, the sensible
men and all the women considered that por
tion of the programme the better part of the
hOT! HOT!! HoT!!!-Well! hot is no
name for it. Our thermometer has burst
and boiled over, and we have to go by our
individual feelings, which said feelings indi
cate several degrees above zero. We had an
invitation to accompany Capt. Hail as histo
rian in his North Pole Expedition: we laugh
ed at the idea then, we are extremely sorry
sow that we did not accept the proposition.
Work is not to be thought of, sleep is out of
the question, watermelons disagree with our
Iconatitution, ice water invites sunstroke.
We wish our exhausted body could be trans
ported to the land of Coleridge's "Ku K lux
Klan." sardrie a

IThro' caverns measureless to man,
Down to a sunless sea,"
in which sunless sea we long to lave our
,burning editorial limbs.
Ran,ran a kingdom for a drizzle!
Wel since writing the above we have had
a drizzle without the payment of a kingdom
on our part. We feel, thereby, highly re
freshed in common with horses, cabbages,
dogs, tomatoes and other animals. Our
journey to the sunless sea is, in consequence,
postponed until further notice.
THE SONS OF TEMPERANCE.-We were
pleased to see the gathering of our young
friends who are engaged in the Temperance
cause, on last Tuesday, 30th ult. It is a re
lief in these days of political excitement to
find people pay attention to matters which,
to the community, are eventually of more
importance than the elec tion of a President.
intemperance entailed utpon us the sequels
of the war has assumed such enormous di
mensiotis that it threatens to bankrupt out
whole social existence. Let M: those who
can takena sip ini moderation sneer, nor those
whose constitution may, with their est-ab
lished htitts, require a stimulant, discour
age te efforts of our young men to build up
a system which needs only the free air of
Heaven, the glorious sunlight and the exhil
arating motion of the body to stimulate into
full exercise all the mental powers, and the
full enjoyment of the beauties of nature and
art and a delightful social itercourse. Those
natural stimulants will be found to suffice
to the young at leas t.
A procession was formed, headed by our
own Silver Cornets in their new uniform of
scarlet jackets, blue breastplates and black
shining leather belts. Our Cornets enjoy al
ready an enviable reputation under their ac
comaplished andl efficient instructor, Professor
Ollever. Our friend H-, with his immense
ltamsnoodler (being no musician we are not
able to give the technical name of his instru
ment':, might excite the envy of the leader of
the Republican baud of France, or of Herr
Saro, of the Imperial Band of Germany.
Thus musically piloted the Society of our
young friends marched through town to the
rear of Mr. Silas JTohnstone's, where speeches
were delivered by Professor Carlisle, of Spar
tanburg, Rev. E. J. Meynardie, and our
young to wnsman, J. F. Spearman. Esq. In
disposition prevented us from attending: but
from the information we h'e received from
friends who were present, we understand
that the speeches were well calculated to in
crease the interest in the cause of Temper
anc, and to stimulate it into renewed activi
tin this place. We have heard Prof. Car
lisle on fotmer occasions and we are satis
fied that he sustained his reputation as one
of the ablest and most cultivated lecturers on
any subject connected with the physical and
mental development of the race. We know
that it is always a rare treat to receive in
struction from one so well qualified to im-.
