The Alleged "Atroeities;" in
APPOISTINT OF AN INVESTIGATING
COMMITTEE BY THE STATE TAX
The following resolution was adopt
ed by the State Tax Union:
. Wiis, to our great surprise, a
communication of President Grant's
to the atorey-general, of date 2d
September instant, contains the fol
lowinV declaration: "The recent
atrocities in Alabama. Louisiana and
South Carolina show a disregard for
law, civil rights and. personal protee
tion thit ought not be tolerated in any
civilized government;" and whereas.
we are 4onfident that the infortnat io
conveyed to the President regardinp
these alleged atrocities in South Caro
lina is not true:
Res;OIC:ed, That one delegate from
caoh conunt be selected by the president
of Union to inquire what atrocities
of the above nature, if any, have been
recently comwitted in this State. and.
if any, in what section, and by what
class of 'persons, and that said dele

of their investigations to the execu

The citizens of South Carolina in

There are ten counties in this State
now garrisoned by Federal troops, as
folluws : Abbeville, Baruwell, Charles

Richland, Spartanburg and York.
Two coupani.s, G. and I., of the
18th Infantry, have beca sent from
Columibia direct to New Orleans.
The Republican Platforin.
The platform endorses the third
term principle, goes for the Civil
Ri-,Cs Bill, blesses Patterson and
Mackey on their agency in procuring
uilitary help at a time when the last peg
seemed to be going from under, and
deprecates lawlessness and violence.
It reviews its devotion to principles of
fiancial reform, and promises to
reduce expenses. It maintains the
settlement of the public debt as
before; and will reject all claims
against which there is a suspicion.
Will advocate such modi6eation of the
system of taxation as wil! prove ad
vantageous ta agricultural interests,
and finally it promises to protect the
properties of the State.

have had what for this s'tason of the
year is a brisk and busy time. The
early opening of the fall trade may be
regarded as a good omen for Charles
ton. The jobbers and wholesale dealers
in the city are prepared with large and
well assorted stocks of troods, anid the
planters and nmrch:ants from the in
terior seem at last to have realized the
fact that their purchases can be made
to as great advantag~e in Charleston as
they can be made int New York.
The Louisiana Trouble.
The past week has been a stirring
and ser-ious one in Louisiana. In the
city of New Orleans on the 15th, the
infamous Kellogg government was
overthrotwn and the oficeers elected
rihtfully in 1872 installed into office.
The news spreading through the dif
ferent counties, enthusiasm was every.
where mianife2sted anid changes made
in all public offices. The hopes of
honest mcen ran high-peace, order
and good government were restored.
But ere we could give the news of the
inaugration of this revolutiom the
scene is chtange:d, and Kllgg is re.
stored to authority by the A dntmistra
tion. The unfortun::te people of
Louisiana are now where they were
before, with this differen'-" that they
will be made to feel the iron heel with
