st REPORT OF COL. T. W. PARATELE TO
iw THE GOVERNOR.
n. U COL_tr., S. C., Feb. 23, 1875.
To his Excellency Daniel .. Cham
berlaint, Governor of South Caro
Le DEAR SIR-During my recent visit
ed to Edgefield County, while engaged
er in recovering the arms from the State
militia in that county, I had, during
a stay of three weeks, some opportunity
;s- of learning the real causes for the re
Y cent troubles there between the white
-o- and colored citizens.
y It is obvious to any- careful observ
ds er who may visit Edgefield County
that the majority of the white people
are a highly cultivated, industrious,
law-abidieg class of citizens, who de
an sire peace, and who are satisfied with
seeking redress for their grievances
only in a lawful manner. So with
the colored race. The majority are
' I industrious, respectable, and opposed
to iny act of lawlessness. There is,
0- however, a disturbing element in the
a- minority of both races. Among the
in whites a clasb of men who hold human
ce life at little value, being as reckless in
e, I risking their own as they are heartless
ie in taking lives of others. These men
r- are habitually armed, and ready to re
sent any assertion of equality as a citi
e zen when coming from a colored man,
al such action on his part being consid
Ld ered offens;ve and presLuptuous.
m These desperadoes are bey,:nd the con
d trol of the more law-abiding white
e- people, who dare not oppose or con
to demn them. Among the colored peo
y ple there is a class who do not wish
Dr to labor, and are known as habitual
thieves or disturbers of the peace, by
making incendiary remarks or suggest
ie ing threats in retaliation for acts or
a language perpetrated or used by white
ie people against them or some one of
t their race. It can thus be seen that
a few lawless or imprudent men of
of both races have involved Edgefield
e County in acts which have injured its
ie good name, while a majority of its
- citizens have been really innocent of
id any wrong intention.
Many complaints were made before
me by colored people on account of -the
abrogation of contracts or leases made
id with them by white- men, or. the
or ground that they belonged to the State
In militia, or because they voted the Re
d. publican ticket. In some cases such
a- written contracts have been shown to
me by colored men who were parties
Y to them, who declare that the land
Iv owners with whom they contracted
,have driven them away from the land,
so leased, under threat of being killed
if they return. I have forwarded to
in your .Excellency many depositions
es made before me by colored people, who
>w state that they have been fired at and
at stopped on the public highways of
of said county by armed white men ; also
a. statements of colored people, separate
'0 ly examined by me, in relation to the
so difficulties between the white and col
Lie ored people at Ned Tennent'r house in
ii- September last, and in' relation to his
-o-~ alleged resistance to arrest on the 18th
as or 19th of January last, with narrative
ii- of facts connected therewith. I have
Lie not thought it wise or proper for me
is to express any opinion as to the cor
ig rectness pf these statements.
Lie It is alleged by white people that
er their dwelling and outbuildings have
at been burned by negroes; but some ad
fl. mit their belief that white men are
ce often the incendiaries, several of whom
ie are now in jail awaiting trial therefor.
at It is said that most of the white men
[r. whose buildings have been burned were
d. those who had refused to unite with
others in the recent proscription
against the colored people.
From the statements made before
isme Ilcan find no proof that the militia
e have at any time been assembled in
a- Edgefield County with~ hostile intent,
is except in September last, when Capt.
r Andrew Burrough marched his comn
'pany to support Ned Tennent, at his
e- home on Mr-. Mitchell Giover's planta
*e- tion, when it was reported that Ten
it neut and many other colored people
n had been killed by the rifle clubs there
iassembled. From all I could learn of
d this, I am unable to discover that
e Capt. Burrough did more than march
his men to Tennent's house and un
2 mediately return with them to the
_ vicinity of Edgefield courthouse, where
ts they at once dispersed, without having
fired a gun or come into collision with
d white people.
.-I am inclined to believe that the
a- assembling of colored people at Ten
nent's house, in September last, was
ioccasioned by the alarm and curiosity
itfelt by them on account of the
firing into Tennent's house by white
emen, after he had retired with his
4family for the night, and it seems
that this assemblage, with the exag
a- gerated rumors circulated as to its size
, and purpose. was the cause of congre
-h gating the rifle clubs. No one has
sdenied to me their belief that this fi
Sring was perpetrated by white men,
sand many white citizens have charac
fterized the act as wanton and coward
>It gives me mueh pleasure to re
dport that the action of your Excellen
Scy in calling on the armed organiza
tions of the county to disband has
met with general approval, and that
d there seems no doubt that the letter
r and spirit of your recent proclamation
will be obeyed by all classes.
SI believe that the proscription of
Sthe colored people will soon cease.
There are now no more laborers in
S Edgefield '2ounty than will be needed
for the cultivadion of the soil this
s year. Many of the land-owners are
ain debt, being obliged to produce from
d their land or be sold out. No one be
flieves that the colored people who
~may be forced to leave the county will
be~ compensated for by the arrival, of
h others, and hence the interests of both
races will induce them to live togeth
r er in harmony.
ri Capt. Blackwell, who commanded
the "Dark Corner Rifle Club," autho
rized me to make publie his statement
to me that he was now willing to rent
-land to twenty colored men, not ex
iscepting those who belonged to the
Smilitia. Other prominent white men

THE COLORED CADET TROUBLES
AT ANNAPOLIs.-An Annapolis (Md.)
letter of the 25th insifit to tUie Balti
more Sun'says: "During this week
Mr. Gordon Claude, of Annapolis, a
young man of most excelletmind and
of fine social standing, now a cadet
engineer, was ordered to fence with
the colored midshipman at the Naval
Academy, and refusing to do so has
been expelled. He was at first re
quested to resign. He would not do
that, though he disliked to disobey
orders. He was then informed
he should consult 'with his parents.
This he did, when his father, Dr.
Abram Claude, said he would not
advise him, leaving it to the young
man's judgment. Dr. Claude, how
ever, went to the superintendent and
told him his son was raised as a South
crner, and not on social equality with
a negro, and he would not advise him
to do what he would not do him
self. On this Mr. Claude was ex
The dismissal of the two cadet mid
shipmen, Melton, of South Carolina,
and Hood, of Georgia, which was
quietly executed here recently, has
brought out two stories of the occur
rences that led to the expulsions. The
first, in effect, that a snow ball thrown
in a squad of midshipmen struck the
colored cadet, wheieupon he prdbeed
ed to curse the whole platoon. The
next day he was caught in an obscure
part of the grounds by Melton and
Hood and severely beaten. Melton
states that on one occasion a number of
midshipmen were engaged ~ in snow
balling, when the colored cadet took a
hand. The crowd, by common con
sent, turned upon and pelted him se
verely. This the colored cadet report
ed to the authorities. Afterwards, on
Sunday evening, when the students
were going in to supper, the colored
midshipman was in Melton's way,
standing in the door. Melton told
him to get out of the way, whereupon.
the other said he was as good as he
was, for he (Melton) was appointed by
a colored man, and he was sent there
by a white one. To this Melton re
plied with sundry oaths, and the af
fair there for tlVe time ended. The
next morning Melton and Hood came
upon the colored boy near the battery,
arid Melton proceeded to assault and
beat him, Hood lending a hand; Mel
ton alleging lie would not have struck
him only he knew the negro would be
believed, and he was to be dismissed
anyhow afterward. Melton was ap
pointed to the academy by Congress
man Elliott, a colored man."
WSINnrOoN, March 5.-At no time
since inauguration day has there been
such a crowd 'as there was this morn
ing to witness the opening of the extra
session of the Senate and the swearing
in of the rnew Senators. At twelve
o'clock, Vice-President Wlison called
the Senate to order. The chaplain, in
the opening prayer, invoked the Divine
blessing upon the Senate, saying: "As
these ~rs are assembled here to
commeia new chapter in the history
of this body, give to each of them life,
health and strength, and in all their la
bors and responsibilities may they lean
upon Thy arm for support." Mr. Mc
Donald, the Chief Cler -, then read the
proclamation of the President, con
vening the Senate in session, after
which the Vice-President directed him
to call the names of the new Senators.
As called, they advanced to the Vice
President's desk and were sworn in, in
groups of three or four, as follows:
Baard, of Delaware; Bruee, of Mis
sissippi; Burnside, of Rhode Island;
Cameron, of Wisconsin; Christiancy,
of Michigan; Dawes, of Massachusetts;
Eaton, of Connecticut; Edmunds, of
Vermont; Hamlin, of Maine; Johnson,
of Tennessee; Kernan, of New York;
McMillan, of Minnesota; McDonald, of
Indiana; Boddock, of Nebraska; Ran
dolph, of New Jersey; Thurman, of
Ohio; Wallace,of Pennsylvania; Whyte,
of Maryland; Caperton. of West Vir
ginia; Cockerell, of Missouri; Jones,
of Florida; Maxcy of Texas, and
Withers, of Virginia-the last named
five taking the modified oath, they hav
ing been engaged in the Confederate
cause. The new Senators were nearly
all escorted to the Vice-President's desk
by their colleagues. After the oath
had been administered to Mr. Johnson,
a handsome bouquet was handed him
by a page, with whom it had been left
by some of the friends of the ex-Presi
dant. Morton, of Indiana, submitted
the following, which was read and laid

The attempt to bend the South, even if ti
it should break, has nof succeeded, and 'W
the government has escaped-a peril. si
The passage of that obnoxious and p
iniquitous bill would have given Grant a]
an unlimited power, in the suspension a
of the habeas corpus, and by which the
frauds, which might be perpetrated by
the Republican party in the next elec- "*
tion, could be hidden, and the Conserva- a]
tives rendered powerless. But it has k
not passed and one great wrong is pre- ix
vented, and the country breathes freer si
that it has been saved. u

Miany of our farmers who planted C
cotton for fifteen cents are now realiz- c
ingthat price, and we heartily congratu- u
late them. They deserve it.after pass- o,
ing through the earlier and more try- e
ing season, in which every pound sold, '
if all things are considered, brought no
more than the cost of raising. In this
their time of rejoicing, however, we s~
earnestly ask them to cast a retrospec- T
tire glance into the past, and not to a
build too high and sanguine hopes on C
the future. Cotton is fifteen cents ad
pound now, and at that price with
proper systems of labor and economy
there is profit in it, but we ask, is e
there any guarantee that this priceF
will continue longer than the present C
crop lasts ? Experience - says no. It b
is idle and vain to build on such a a
hope. As soon as the crop is out of
the country, and the next crop begins g
to come upon the market, so soon will
the price fall, and the same experience
be gone over. One of the difficulties. t
we think, lies in -the fact, that the
ambition to excel in the largeness of 0'
the crop and raise.more bales than his
neighbor causes many a farmer to go s
into debt and cripple himself in such S
a way that he is forced to sell to keepp
the wolf from his door, and the cotton di
ring speculators, knowing this, manip
ulate in such a manner that they can w
get the cotton at their own figures. 9
If the farmer would plant less cotton a
and more corn, and keep out of debt le
and his nose off the grindstone,he would H
be able to control the thing~ in a greatK
measure, and realize a third, perhapsV
half as much more on one bale as on
two, and not until this policy is adopted
will it be any better. Cotton at twelve 0
cents does not pay, and yet year after t
year the exigencies of the case demand e
the selling of a portion of the crop at
that price. The times havechne.s
While cotton goes down, corn and o
bacon go up, and what was profitable
in the past is unprofitable now. Our a
advice is to make home supplies, bed
certain to look to that; and after -that
as much cotton as is convenient. o

SALUDA MiLLs, Feb. 23, 1875.
IMPS EDITOR-As this is a very,
rainy day I shall attempt to let your
many readers hear from this part of
the County. The farmers have already
begun to prepare to pitch their farams,
though with little success, as the wea
ther will not permit much work out
doors. Some have begut to turn
their lands, others making fence; in
fact, Mr. Editor, everybody.is busy at
smething iu this part of the County.
Somec who can find nothing else to do,
go about moving utensils with which.
others have to work. Some time since
a laboring man had prepared him
what is comm ronly called a draw-horse,
for the purpose of drawing some shin
gles. Another farmer came along
who had nothing to do (or at least lhe
was doing nothing) and moved it
away from the place about six hundred
yards. So the poor shingle-maker had
to lug the old horse back, which was
as much as he could well carry. Mr.
Editor, this man did not go unpunish
ed, for some one else piled such a
quantity of large pine logs before his
corn-house doors that he had to ask
assistance to remove them before he
could feed his stock.
Now you all can see that the people
about Saluda Mills can be doing no
