st 31r. Edrid~dge, from the mtinority of
sI the Judiciary Committee of the House.
t submitted a winority report on the
condition of affairs in South Carolina.
. The report dissents entirely from thej
coue!usions of the majority, and is
it generally concurred in by the entire
minority of the Judiciary Committee.
es' The winAirity say:
It is impossible to turn a deaf ear
to the supplicating wail of 300,000
oppressed and despoiled citizens oft
that once prosperous and happy State.

- reason orjustification for refusing the
t hearing they now request. Their
idelity to the constitution and laws is
cox now unqluesioned, and this plea iS
D ade in respectful terms.
- The report thtn recites briefly and
pointedly the list of grievances com
'UP plained of. and predicates frot thtti
au that th chars-es of the ienorialists
1 are tre. The minority say :
V We aire aware of the doubts and
O difficulty in pointing out the precise
he clause of the constitution atuth-orizing
ug intervention. but that protection in
s all things is essential to good govern
iat meZt no one denies. It should never
ve be lost sight of; that for the cou
au dition of things now existing in South
n Carolina the federal government A
d primarily responsible. Blink it look
ter upon it as we may, horrible as the
work of its hand may now appear,
HF Congress set up and established the
State of things that makes the coui
mionwealth of South Carolina the
001 foul stinma it now is in our system.
A We do not argue the right to inter
U fere on that ground at this time, but
OW we submit that we subject our govern
o mental theorems to the contempt of
the world and all intelligent men, in
that we are all powerful to inaugurate
and establish the paudemouium now
usexisting there. and the very momentl
f it is done are utterly powerless to in.
terfere with it at all, or to save the
pr"perty of the people from the spoils
man. Nor can we forbear the sug
;ts gestion that. if this appeal were on be
talf o 300,000 negroes, instead of
300,000 white Southerners of our iwn
race and 'blood,such are the sympathies
of the majority, as heretofore exhibited,
that they would find by right or by
- wrong some means of relief; the peti
i tioners would not have been so coldly
and flippantly turued away. It is a
UU watter of the greatest delicacy for the
U federal government to interfere to pro
tect part of the people of the State
from the oppressious aud misrule of
Ithe other. It is conceded that it
ne ought not to be done for trivial causes;
of butit iis ct a light or trivial case
it that 300O,00)0 people, all the property
of holders of the great State, are being
stripped and _despoiled by usurpation
la- and fraud; that there ought to be power
oand authority adequate in such emer.
it, Igency to save, all lovers of honesty and
, good government will admit, and it is
p-afundamental defect in our system if
tcthre be not, in view of the thoughtful
'e wisdom of the authors of our eoustitu
u- tion. Are we prepared to render such
-judgment, that our constitution of
ogovernment is so irreparably defective ?
ed jThe complaint of the memornahits is
ad that the rulers of the people have
he *surped the power to tax property
r-owners. not for legislative purposes,
nOt to support the government of the
rd State, but for the purpose of impover
he fishing the taxpayers and ennicngn
at themselves; for the purpose of taxinga
e the white people down to the level of
to the negro. Under the pretence of the
mtaxing power they are endeavoring to
e- isribteproperty ofowners amngI
rthese who have anue. Is this not a
iusurpation by the :ilers of the State,
- gainst which constitutional guarantee
as the itnded to protect ? It is not
astemare abuse of the taxing power,
e- but the utter perversion of that power
in from all legitimate objects of taxation.
ra- Can there be a republican form of
an overnmienit where this is done, the
d main object of the governmient being
d the protection of the property of the
on itizen and the citizen in the enjoy
weuent of his property ?"
ee The report quotes from HIami.lton,
Calhoun and other authorities as to
econstitut?ional gran*-tee, adconcludes
at as follows :
eeIn view of the whole case, we can
tnot hesitate to recommend the appoiut
mnent of a committee of both houses
of Congress, with power and authority
ay to uo into the State of South Carolina
eand fully inquire and investiuate into
charges and complaint of the memo
ralists. To do less we feel we should
vilt r neglect a mo4.st solemn and
t perative duty. Tfhe cry of that out
r dadhelpkess anmd suffring pieople
reh:s reached our hearts as weil as our
lunderstandinig. Tha~t once pre-spering
