HOW THE R10T BEGAN.
The Hampton and Tilden Col
ored Club of Ward 4 met last
evening at Archer's Hall. J. R.
Jenkins, the Vice-President, called
the meeting to orler, and speeches
were made by Jenkins, J. W.
Sawyer, Isaac B. Rivers, Aucustus
Grant, Stephney Riley, J. W.
Barnwell and Lawrence Brown.
As there had been a threat thrown
out that the colored Radical mem
bers of the Live Oak and Hunki
dory Clubs would break up the
meeting and kill the colored
Democrats, it was resolved by the
club to escort the colored Dem
ocrats to their homes. After the
meeting adjourned, about quarter
past 10 o'clock, the line was form
ed and each colored Democrat was
placed in the centre of a half dozen
whites. The line then marched
up King street quietly and with
out interruption, until they reach
ed the German Church, opposite
the.Cathedral Green; when a mob
of about 150 negroes, armed with
staves, clubs and pistols, came yell
ing after then, h'urrahing for
Hayes and Wheeler. The white
men stopped, and one of the lead
ers of the negro gang who had
run up ahead of his crowd accom
panied by about a dozen, knocked
the first white man he met in the
head with a slung shot, and the
crowd immediately behind him
fired a pistol into the crowd of
whites, shouting that they would
have the colored Democrats out
even if they had to kill every man
in the crowd to do it. The whites
then returned the fire, shooting
over the heads of the negro mob,
and a portion of the white men
took Rivers, Sawyer and Jenkins,
and other colored Democrats to
the Citadel, where they were
placed under the guard of the
United States troops. In a short
er time than it takes to tell the
story the negro mob had increased
to fully three hundred, all of
whom were yelling and shouting
and breathing threats of violence.
There were about forty whites in
the crowd, and these retreated
back wards up King street, facing
the negroes and keeping them off'
as well as they could by returning,
the fire from the pistols of the
mob. On reaching the corner of
John street the negro mob was
reinforced by another multitude
of blacks, who swept out of John
street and cut off the retreat of
the whites. It was at that point
that the fight became hottest. It
was now a hand to haqd contest,
in which pistol shots exchanged
very radidly. Only four or five
policemen had arrived at the
scene, and these were, of course,
powerless to restrain the infuriated
mob. Justice Reed, with a white
man named Plasp~o1il, then came
up and called on aposse of citizens,
white and black, to assist him in
quieting the row. But the ne
groes would listen to nothing.
They cried ":blood !" and swore
they would have it. Policeman
Chas. Green, colored, at this time
came up, and, standing between
Judge Reed and Mr. Plasphol, did
all he could to persuade the crowd
to disperse ; they refused, an
swering his words with curses and
threats. For a moment the~crowd
appeared as if quieting, but a skir
mish between a white and black
man, on the outskirts ofthe crowd,
soon renewed the general fight.
Policeman Green became surround
ed, and endeavored to arrest a
man who had just fired off a pistol.
Pistols were going off every mo
ment, and amid the firing Police
man Green fell, shot through the
abdomen, and Mr. J. M. Buckner,
white, was shot through the ab
domen. By this time the police
men were reinforced by squads
from the upper and lower guard
houses, and succeeded in sepa
rating the whites from the blacks.
The wounded men were taken to
the upper guard house by a detail,
and the fighting immediately be-I
gan again. The whites by this
- time numbered only about fifteen
men, large numbers of them hay
ing been knocked senseless with
clubs and palings, with which the
mob were armed. After a desul
tory fight of about fifteen minutes
lbnger the negroes had complete
mastery of the field. Policeman
Green was the only colored man
up to that time who was hurt,
and he was shot, it is believed, by
one of the negro mob, who at
tempted to fire at a white man he
was protecting. Several negroes
had been knocked down and five or
six received bad gashes over the
head, but none were seriously hurt.|
The negroes then stationed them
selves in crowds of forty and fifty
at each corner along King street,
extending from Calhoun street to
the upper guard house, in front of
which stood a huge and infuriated
mob, eursing and threatening to
break in and take out the white
men who had been placed there
for protection. White man on the
~trppt~ were Reflrca. and as soon as
ew moments the unfortunate was
urrounded by a pack of over two
kundred nogroCs,-who did every-.
hing but kill him. They would
-nock him down with brickbats,
and as soon as he would ge.u up-to
un thev would fire pistol shjs at
in and over his head, while the
rowd ahead would rearrest him
md give him another beating.
It would be impossible, in a
reneral riot like the one last
vening, to attempt to give de
ails. White man after white man

That there are many colored men
in this town and County who would
vote the Democratic ticket if they
were not under intimidation is a fact
which is well known, and in spite of
this they call themselves freemen.
What is this but the veriest slavery
slavery of the most abject character ;
freemen in name but s!aves in princi
ple, afraid to assert their manhood
and their right to cast their vote as
their conscience dictates. Under the
party lash of unprincipled leaders
they will vote away their very souls
as they have all their other interests.
It is time they become freemen indeed,
and shake off the fear which binds them
and keeps them from aiding in ridding
the country of corruption, and bring
ing about a condition of prosperity
which will be for the good of the
black as well as the white man. And
but little time remains for them to
make the choice whether they will
turn to the right or still persist in
voting against their best interests.
Gen Hampton in his speech at An
derson said that he did not want a
rop of blood shed or a single deed of
violncen during the present campaign.
Union League Watchwor.
We have been handed a copy of an
incendiary document purporting to
emanate from the Union League, which
was found posted on a tree at Martin's
Depot, September 7th, and signed by
sixteen names, one a white man. This
paper, which is styled "Our Union
League By-word," is of the most dia
bolical character, and the truth of its
being found as stated is verified by the
names of six responsible and well
known citizens of that section. The
propriety, however, of giving it publi
cation in our columns in this excited
state of the canvass is doubted, not
only byus but by the Chairman of the
County Executive Committee. In ac
cordance with these views, and until
a more complete verification that it
did originate in the League, and that
the devilish creed therein set forth is
the watchword, we withhold it, and in
the meantime lend our earnest efforts
to ferret out and bring the signen
to the punishment which they are an
titled. It can be seen at this office.

PoARIA, S. C., Sept. 4, 1876.
MR. EDITOR :-In the absence of'
your .Powaria correspondent at the
great Centennial Exhibition, I take
the liberty of assuming the "duties of
his office." On Thursday last, reports
were prevalent to the effect that two
or more colored
would deliver addresses at St. James'
negro church, near Pomaria, next day
9 a. m., and be replied to by
in the persons of O. L. Schumpert and
George Johnstone, Esquires, of your
The tidings were passed from man
to man with almost the celerity of the
famous Fiery Cross of Scotland; and
Fridiy's noon-time witnessed a good
attendance on the grounds. The wri
ter, not being versed in the negro
custom of keeping appointments, ar
rived at about the appointed time;
but found it as destitute of man or
beast as were Benlodi's sides at the
waving of Sir Roderick's hand. Time
flew on with heavy wings, until at
last, whilst we were in the act of exe
cuting a "masterly movement to the
rear," a change came over the face of
the field, like a vast panoramic revolv
ing scene enrolling from the whole
circumference. "After all we shall iee
the combat:" "But where are the
Richards ? The Earls of Richmond,
long since come, are quietly awaiting
their entrance into -the lists." At
last about the sweltering hour of noon,
r when by many patience, had ceased to
be thought a virtue, James Hender
son and J. D. Boston, of your village,
arrived and "reported themselves for
The Democratic party, through
Messrs. Thomas W. Holloway, Alan
Johnstone, and Edward Jones, sug
gested a "division of time" and alter
nate speaking. Each spg r's time
s was limited to one hour*; and Thomas
s W. Holloway and Harry Counts se
slected as "masters of ceremonies."
John Sloan, alias Jack Livingston,
our-country," a colored Radical, whose
character common reports affrm does
discredit to even the Republican party
at its worst.
rMr. D. Julius Rents, an active and
Svery intelligent Democrat, whose
spatriotism and constant efforts therein
are now commending themselves to
the emulation of all his people,
IJames Henderson, colored miember
of the Legislature. His speech was
of the "solo" ordev, ovideutly intended
for only those of the most highly temn
pered tympanums. However, by por
truding the ear as far as possible to
wards the speaker, I had the pleasure
of catching a portion of his modest
peroration, "I want an office, and I
want the highest one that you can
give me." But he did not say what it
should be ; so that now it is not known
whether Hayes shall "step down and
out," or not.
Osborne L. Schumpert, a gentleman
long, well and favorably known
through his excellent talents and fine
literary attainments, and now highly
commending himself to the affectionate
regard of his countrymen by his noble
efforts in their behalf. Speech-sub
jet.matter highly pertinent and well
selected; delivery neat and ornate;
impression made, very favorable. This
speech dispelled all fears-our very
anxiety to stand as Saul's sometimes
engenders the most unwarrantable
doubt ;-and our pent-up feelings rush
into the other extreme, "Lay on,
MacDuff, and damned be he who first
-cries 'hold ! enoughl' "
The Rev. J. D. Boston, aspirant to
State senatorial honors. Speech-'sub
ject-matter unusually per tinent ; de
-livery, earnest ; impression highly
favorable. To deny this colored speaker
his meed of praise simply because he
belongs to a different race and party
"give the Devil his dues"-would de
monstrate my unfitness to act as pub
lie reporter. He did remarkably well;
.sed some very good and grammatical
language, with so few exceptions that
they need hardly be reckoned; was
plausible, to the point, and always
ready "with lance or shield," and alto
gether was, by far, I think, tha most
dangerous open foe in the Republican
ranks that day.
ISIXTH AND LAST SPEAKER.
George Johnstone, Esq., whose or
dinary weight is, perhaps, one hundred
and forty pounds, but speaking weight
much greater, 8peecli--rsub,ject-mia$
ter historical, extremely pertinent add
weighty; delivery eloquent; impres
sion , grandly favor able. This masterly
effort reflected credit not only upon
the youthful speaker, but upon his
party also. ~ by
,losed St. James' combat; and the
lun, "low wheeling in the west," saw
frider and horse, friend and foe in
>ne red element blent" go tramping
iomeward. Did these speeches in
)ehalf of Democracy, or, as the first
yrator gave it, -,Dimmicratism," do
[n all probability, yes, inueb; although
it may not be exhibited in an increased
umber of colored votes in the coming
lection. As to voting it may be fair
to say, the negroes are still lying under
the Upas tree of this pseudo-Republi
anism of South Carolina, enwrapped
in those deep slumbers froi which
not even Ezekiel's trumpet with its
resurrecting blasts could awaken them;
but as to other things this much is
certain : these speeches removed many
erroneous impressions that had already
found their way into the susceptible
minds of the colored people; cerei ad
vitium displayed, as in a panoramic
scene, the causes of our country's suf
feiing ; prescribed a remedy, the in
fallibility of which has been demon
strated by a hundred years experience;
and faithfully and earnestly exhorted
towards its application. Nothing more
could have been done; and we never
harvest our corn as soon as it is sown.
If a disinterested party had been
present he would have been struck by
of motives between Democratic and
Republican speakers: the foriner work
ing for the State alone ; the latter for
themselves alone ;' Schumpert and'
Johnstone disdaining office; Hender
son and Boston pleading for it, led by
that insatiable spirit of ambition so
beautifully described by Shakspeare
(no copy by me) in his lines: "Man !
proud man ! dressed in a little better
coat, cuts such fantastic didoes now
and then as make the monkey's laugh."
And I venture the assertion that he
would always discover this remarkable
thiDg. I myself cannot now recollect of
ever having heard a Republican speak
er unless under one or the other of
these two circumstances: he wished
an ofiee ; or else, having stained him
self with the. deepest dyes of villainy,
and slunk away to the protecting
shades and darkening shades of this
pseudo-Republicanism, he felt and
spoke like the fallen angels, when, far
from the saving "Cross .of Christ,"
they lay consulting on the Burning
Lake. On the other hand,how many
examples of disinterested motives
among the Democracy ! There were
those of these two gentlemen; and
another just now occurs to my mind.
It is that of Mr. Thomas W. Hollo
way, the able and active President of
the Pomaria Democratic Club. Whilst
recently engaged abroad in arranging
the Democratic ticket for the approach
ing election, he had the ulisfortune to
suffer again from a midnight raid.
FIVE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SIX
POUNDS OF BACON
"wet like a dreaam-by night--wof
things that were, .is neither a school
boy's talc nor faney of an hour ;" for
three weeks have . since elapsed, and
still the warrants are returned. "non est
inventus." "Why ?" Well probably
because the atteution of the loser has
been wholly absorbed by his Democratio
duties, and he was altogether unwill
ing to "save his bacon" at his country's
expense. Let them be remembered,
countrymen ! G.
FOE TE HERALD.
MR. EDIToa :--In your issue of the
6th inst., appears an article over the
signature of "Mollohon," in which
the following questions, to the County
nominees of the Democratic party, are
propounded, viz: Whether they are
all to a man ready for the political
battle, and of those who were absent
at the time of the session of the
County Convention, when the nomi
nations weve made, how many have
"accepted or will cept the nomina
tions ? I was not present in the con
vention when the nominations were
made, and therefore give my answer
to the above question. Bqt ag rneue of
the nominees have publicly declined
their nominations,iL is certainly equiva
lent to an acceptance of the same, and
should be so regarded by the people.
As it was the pleasure and wisdom of
the Convention to make myself,one of
the nominees I hereby declare my
aeeptance of the noniination. and in
doing so, I pledge myself to work for
the success of the Democratic party,
and promise to do all I can legally
and fairly to place the nominees of the
Democratic party in o2ce on the day
of election. I am now, as I have ever
been, ready and. willing to work for
the common. good of our country, and
if elected to the office for which I have
been nominated, I pledge myself to
discharge the duties of said office to
the best of my ability; ever having in
view honesty and integrity, and the
common interests of the whole people.
The time has come in the history of
our country, when every one who has
the good of his country at heart, should
actively and earnestly, and by all i.
and fair ways, go to work to redeemA
it from. the misrule and corruption
which are so swiftly carrying it to
inevitable ruin. I say then that it is
not only the duty of every man who
desires a good and honest government
to vote for it, but to lend his influence
by placing his name on the roll of the
Democratic Club nearest to him, and
not only to enter his name on the roll,
but he should be present at every meet
ing if possible. By doing this we
become united and strong, and become
aroused to a sense of our duty. These
meetings have an influence, a weight
and a power, that will have a telling
