A. A. GILBERT, Recording Secre
A Lesson to Politicians.
The following is from the Savannah
.Netcs. The italics are our own and
we request our readers to peruse that
emphasized pasage twice and very
"A large number of the leading
business men of New York, with a
view of seeking the best available in- I
formation upon, and, if possible, to
find the true, scientific solution of
the currency question, and to dissem
inate such information, when found,
among the people, have agreed to form
a uational pure money league. The
call for the first meeting, which is to
be held to-iay, is signed by George
Opdyke, David Dudley Field, Erastus
Brooks, Whitelaw Reid, Park Godwin,
* and others equally well known."
- It will be remembered that during
the last fall campaign in the States of
Ohi-o, Pennsylvania and New York,
the financial question was, in fact, the
* -only question upon which the election
hinged. In Ohio and Pennsylvania,
hard money and contraction was ad
vocated by the Republican party, and
Iif New York by t'he Democrats. The
hard money party prevailed; there
was no other issue. As soon as Con
gress assembled the condition of the
country had become such that it was
evident that the resumption of specie
payment could not be brought about
at the time limited by Act of Congress
without the greatest injury to the in
terests of the people, and the two par
ties have ever since been endeavoring
to effect a compromise without any
result. Now, during that campaign
the hard money men called the infia
tionists highway robbers-who in
tended to cheat the capitalists of their
well earned interest on their bond in
vestments, and who besides would if
their doctrines prevailed destroy the
credit and compromise the honor of
the nation. The infiationists-as they
were denominated-called the oppo
site party thieves, who would steal
the last cent out of a poor man's
pocket and would, in cold blood,
allow widows and orphans to starve.
Hard inoney and rag babies were
thrown at each other until the
Heavens were obscured. Each party
was confident that their doctrine was
the correct one, that it was impos
sible to entertain a doubt-and now
eminent lawyers, bankers, financiers
and political'economists form a league,
for what-to find the true solution of
the currency question, if possible.
T'hey not only acknowledge their igno
ance, but doubt whether that igno
ange can ever be removed. What a
lesson to politicians, who express their
opinioas with such confidence and de
nounce those who differ from them as
men without character, thieves, !!ars,
rascals and fools. Is it not time in this
age of civilization-save the mark-I
that we treat the opinions of others with'
respect, speak deliberately, and reason
without calumny or personal reflection.
On every other subject men will dis
cuss the opinion of others dispassion
ately, but when a question of politics
is brought forward we seem to loose
our judgment and our charity, and
treat an opponent as an enemy of man
kind. Politis-if any science at all
-is the most complicated of sciences;
on no subject should our judgments be
formed without more consideration or
expressed with more diffidence; on no
subject should opposite opinions be
treated with more charity and credit
given to honesty of conviction. We
-sincerely hope that this Centennial
year will teach this lesson so much
needed. All the nations will assemb)le
on this continet anrl then we may
All Roads Lead to Rome.
The Neics & Courier thinks the
elimax is capped by the following
transaction of our President, as shown
in the following announcement:
"Ex-Attorney-General Williams was
examined by the House committee on
expenditures in the department of
justice, and testified to the payment
to Juo. J. Davenport, former United
States Commissioner in New York,
out of the secret service funds, of $30,
000 for election purposes. Upon be
ing pressed, Judge Williams acknow
ledged that the money was paid by
the direct order of the President."
The subjoined from the Nashville
American, is a feather stuck in the
cap which waves a foot, a foot and a
half may be two feet above the said
"in Hartford, Connecticut, last Fri
day evening, United States Senator
William E. Eaton addressed an au
dience of some twenty-five hundred.
In the course of his speech he made a
rather startling announcement concern
ing a matter which he said had not
been as yet made public, but with
which he was "thoroughly convers.
ant." and its substance was that when
the New Orleans whisky ring comes
to be exposed St. Louis and other
Western cases of this class would seem
insignificant, for in New Orleans
frauds would be traced directly to the
White House and to President Grant,
who was familiar with all the facts.
He claimed further, that men who had
gone there to ferret out the facts had
been killed, and that the Attorney
General had refused to take steps to
ward punishing the murderers. He
knew this to be true, and he knew
that the Attorney-General and Presi
dent also knew it."
Poor Blaine has got into trouble.
He is accused of having received some
$60,000 in a crooked way. The Demo
crats are charged with having originated
the accusation for political purposes.
Mr. Harrison, however, who has started
the matter, and desires to keep the de
tails c' the transaction a secret until
he is called upon to give his testimony
before the Congressional investigating
committee, is a thorough Republican.
We must, however, not omit to state
that Harrison is a strong friend of
Morton, anothier candidate for Presi
dential honors, and therefore, his im
prssions may be slightly biased. We
hope that Blaine may prove innocent
of the charges; we have corruption
scandal enough to keep up with.
Blane is a political trickster, and,
therefore, we do not want to see him
made President; but we always thought
him too cunning if not too honest to
accept a bribe.
We are sorry to say that the Sun
poet does not believe much in his in
nocence. Hear him:
Of the State of Maine,
Smartest cnss in out of the rain
Full to the brim
Of brass and sass, and pluck and vim
Why he's the festive little pill
That went through estawampous Hill
And made the chivalry so ill;
He st-le Ulysses' little squirt,
And put on Morton's bloody shirt;
Hammered Conkling's.bump of gumption,
Walloped Hayes out of resumption,
Whitened Butler's gory locks,
And put a black eye on Sam Cox.
Of the State of Maine;
Will somebody please explain ?
We clip the following very pertinent
remarks in reference to the Chinese
California immigration question from
the Charleston News and C'ourier:
It should not be forgotten that the
very people who clamor against the
Chine.se,because they are pagans, helped
to thrust upon the white communities
of the South the eight hundred thous
an African voters whom the war set
free. The African is lower in the
ethnological scale than the Asiatic.
The Caucasian is farther removed
from the negro than from the Chinese.
And the Africans, less'fitted for citi
zenship than the Chinese are, were
made voters everywhere, and absolute
rulers in some of the fairest States of
the South. The constitutional amend
went which was intended to pre
vent discrimination against the negro
prevents discrimination against the
Asiatic. As they made the bed the
people of the Pacific slope must lie on
The incursion of the Asiatic catises
us no alarm. There is room for them
and for millions like them. And if
their illegibility to citizenship should
strengthen the conviction that qualified
and impartial suffrage is necessary to
the public safety, and if their coming
should reduce the cost of articles of
prime necessity, the so-called invasion
will be far more of a benefit than an
injury to the Republic.
Cheap labor cannot injure us, but
unqualified suffrage has done so ever
since emancipation. . If a wholesale
Chinese immigration will be instra
mental in bringing about that object,
let us have Ah Shin's cousins to the
Governor Smith, of Georgia, will
not be a candidate for re-election.
Spartanburg, according to the Spar
tan, keeps on improving-quietly but
Gen. Schofield has accepted the
position of Superintendent of the
West Point Military Academy.
Gov. Chamberlain has accepted the
resignation of Attorney-General Mel
ton-to take effect on the 1st of May.
General John Howard, of Graham
vilie, Beaufort County, was foully
murdered last week while returning
home from the village. It was evi
dently done for the purpose of robbe
ry. These robbery-murders are fear
fully on the increase in the State.
The NineLy-Six Herald is out again
under the management of Mr. R. P.
Quarles. The Spartan thinks Nine
ty-Six will never support a paper until
the Spartanburg & Augusta R. R., is
built. We hope the new paper will
live to bring aobut the building of the
above mentioned Railroad.

When Belknap was called before the

charges, he pleaded to the jurisdiction
of the Senate, stating that at the time
the articles of impeachment were pre

Representatives he was not an officer of
the United States but only a private citi

knap immediately after his exposure
tendered his resignation, which the

to screen his favorite from punish

MR. EDITOR:-Several articles b3
"Countryman" have lately appeared ir

upon the futility of reorganizing tb

the present time. He admits our pres
ent fallen condition-that official an<

our liberties and our private rights ar<
daily trampled upon-that everything
we esteem pi-ecious is overthrown an<
confiscated-that our progress in th(
road to knowledge and science i
thwarted-that everything tends to ruir
and disgrace-that we are a tax-op
pressed and overburdened people-tha
reform in the State and municipal office
is sadly needed-and strange, yea, pass
ing strange, he urges us to join the Re
publican party, or rather nominat
honest men from that party, that w
may cleanse the Augean stables. Witl
all due deference to "Countryman's
intelligence, we ask him, "Are vol
joking?" You are surely mistaken i
your opinion. Has not that been tried
and what was the result? Why, th
rascality, the fraud, the jobbery, th<
corruption, the very evils which he de
nounces as disgraceful, had their origit
in the Republican party. Then shal

by their evil associations? Nothin

incentive, all our endeavors will prov
useless. It seems tbat hope has fie

man who has often led his little han
io victory ought never to think of fal

at stake. If the people of South Carc

will never he free. If we wish to ri
ourselves we must strike the blow wit
our own hands-"make personal sacr
fices," labor for the public weal, mak
all things subservient to the country'
welfare-and we believe it is the seriou
intention of the Democratic party to d
this. We must never despair-ours i
a just cause-and "thrice is he arme
that hath his quarrel just;" and we ca:
never expect great deeds to be pei
formed, immortal honors gained nor
State to be redeemed without dust an
heat. Let us remember that the batti
is not always-'t the swift, nor to th
strong. Does the Republican party eve
dream of giving up? No, they entex
tain no such thought; on the othe
they are ever hopeful and persevering
and consequently victorious-.
What means this recent split in th
Republican party? It is ominous. ]
shows that there is a certain class c
politicians among them who are con
strained by their love of decency, justice
good government, and for the sake c
everything that is near and dear t
them, to come out from the thievin;
crew. It is evidently a house divide'

we are in the minority-"hopelessly il
the minority." What if we are? Whi

Ye sons of Carolina, emulate these ex

hand mn hand with her in her country'
battles, then why not follow her in he
political conquests? That we are in th
minority is one of the strongest reason:
why we should work the more strenu
ously. It should inspire us with doubi
zeal and diligence.

that by well directed steps, by organizing
the Democratic party, and nominatial

THE ARRAIGNMENT OF BELKNAP.
3 Contrary to general expectation
f General William W. Belknap, late
t Secretary of War, appeared in person
e at the bar of the Senate on Monday,
the 17th inst., to answer to the arti
cles of impeachment exhibited against
him by the House of Representatives.
It was believed he would not respond
t to the summons of the Senate in pro
> pria persona ; as, strictly speaking,
t he was not required to do so. He
could, had he so wished; have appear
ed by counsel, which would have been
entirely satisfactory to the Senate sit
ting as a High Court of Impeachment;
Sbut he was advised by his lawyers to
2 put on a-bold front, and, by his pres
. ence, endeavor to impress the court
a with the fact that he was not afraid
s to confront either it or his accusers.
8 It must be confessed that he went
' through the ordeal remarkably well.
Ex- Senator Matt. H. Carpenter is the
senior counsel in the case, and will
probably take a leading part in the
a trial. The Chairman of the impeach
I ment managers on the ,part of the
s House of Representatives, is Hon.
e Scott Lord, representative from the

this State, as a sort of forlorn hope
against James Monroe, but without
the slightest expectation of electing
him. T0 the long period which has
since intervened, and during which
the Federalists passed away and the
Whig party rose, and, after an illus

publican party was formed and finally
came into power and has ruled the
country for sixteen years, the Presi

every particular, the foremost State
in the Union, and at nearly every
