A Day of Fasting, HumniliatinI
RooMs STATE DEM. Ex. COMMITTEE,
CoLMBIA, S. 0., Oct. 4, 1876.
Several communications bave been
received by this committee from dif
ferent quarters of this State asking
that, at an early date, a day be fixed,
and that all citizens be invited to
dedicate that day' to fasting, humnilia
tion and prayer. The committee has
no official authority to make such a
call, and feels that sader ordinary cir
esumstances its' propriety as relating to
the triu.mph of a party in a political
contes't might be questioned. But the
present is no party contest, nor do we
strive for personal gain or office or
honor. Either we are laboring for the
moral and material advantage of the
whole people or our protestations are
This being our firm conviction, we
venture te bring our case before the
Tribunal of Almighty Justice and
invoke divine aid' in behalf of our
afBlicted State and its people ; there

and respectfully invited to set apart
Thursday, the 26th day of the present
-month, as a day of fasting, humilia
tion and prayer. It is requested that
all places of business be closed and
labor suspended, that all may assemble
at -the several places of divine worship;
'and the ministers of the gospel are
solicited to open the churches for
service on that day and lead us in the
prayer unto Almighty God that jus.
tice, peace and prosperity, mercy and
truth, with fellowship and good feel

prevail amoung our long suffering and
much disturbed people.

Is Hayes a Hypocrite ?
In his letter of acceptance Gover
nor Hayes was full of the kindliest
sentiments towards the people of the
South, and promised them that if he
were elected,- he would make it his
especial study to guard and protect
their interests. Yet Governor Hayes
approves of the employment of this
infidel Ingersoll, who goes roaring
about the country "despising and de
fying God," cursing and reviling the
South, cursing and abusing Southern
ers, and fairly exploding for want of
words to express all the hatred and
malice he feels towards the men who
are again united with us in the bonds
of the Union. This man, who has
about as much conscience as a bellows,
and as powerful a command of Bil
lingsgate as a fishwife, spoke only a
day or two ago, at Gov. Hayes' own
home, to an immense throng. Gov.
Hayes doubtless listened himself to
his blackguard abuse of the South and
the Southern people. What with his
telegrams of affectionate congratula
tion to Blaine; his letters to Grant,
which he has not the courage publicly
to avow ; his intimacy with Chandler,
and his toleration and encouragement
of this man Ingersoll, the people are
beginning to believe that they have
been right, who have insisted from the
first that the election of Hayes w~as
the re-election of Grant, and an en
dorsement of all the corruption and
sectional hate of that Administration

Special attention is called to the ar.
tiele below copied from the Rural

Fair. All our people should give this
noble enterprise their strong support,
moral and material-by their presence,
if possible. and by sending contribu
tions for exhibition. From the char
acter of the board of officers, we coufi
dently expect an exposition that will
please the most fastidious f all disp,.
sitions and tastes:
We are frequently asked, will there 6e a

giving an affirmative answe- to the enquiry,

that on the 14th November next, the State
Fair- will open in Columbia, and we antici
pa te not only a large contribution of articles,
but a wonderful turn out of the people. It
will Le Lue frst demonstration after the dis
enthralment that takes place on the 7th No
vember, and will be a fit time for the mani
festation of joy we have in store for such an
Our farmers and mechanics should remem
ber, too, tat contributions to a Fair are
worthless unless there aFe people in attend
ance to see the articles. If a thousand peo
ple each send one article to exhibit, and all
stay at home, they contribute but little to
the success of the Fair. But if half that num
ber each send one article, and double that
number go to see them, the Fair is pro
nounced a success.
The expense of attending the Fair often
prevents our people from filling Columbia to
over.lowing during Fair week. Increased
hotel accommodation, and cheaper railroad
travel, (say three cents a mile for the round
trip) will throw into Columbia thousands
who will not otherwise attend, and pour into
the coffers of our railroads more net money
than is received any oLuer week during the
year. Will not the President of -oe Society,
and the citizeas of Columbia effect and ad
vertise arrangements to this end? We hope

Chamberlain and Elliott.
Gov. Chamberlain, in that "cam
paign document," alias reply to Mr.
Haskell, compares the reconciliation
between himself and Elliott to that
between Tilden and Hendricks. That's
too thin. The difference between the
latter was merely upon a matter of
policy; between the former on a mat
ter of principle. Tilden was a hard
money man, and Hendricks an infla
tionist. Chamberlain is guilty of
.fraud and corrnption, and so is Elliott,
according to the testimony of each.
Wh-shouldn't they reconcile ?
Gov. Chamberlain, what about the
Combahee riots ? Your beloved sub
jects would like to know something
about that. No doubt you forgot to
mention the subject in that "campaign
document." Who were the "authors"
of that "lawlessness" and "disturb
ance ?" And why were they allowed
to continue so long unchecked ? Who
were the "kites" and the "doves?"
Who were the "wolves" and the
"lambs" in that disturbance ?
I solemnly protest against the
proclamation of Governor Chamn
brlain as absolutely false in so
far as it imputes t.o the inhbabitan ts
within the limits of this circuit
any purpose to obstruct the ordi
nary course of judicial proceed
ings or to resist in any maniner
the due execution of the laws for
the protection of life, property or
the rights of citizenship, and I
have good and sufficient reasons
to believe and do believe that the
said proclamation is equally false
in imputing such insurrectionary
purposes to the white population
in the other circuits of this State.
--T. J. Mackey.
The meeting at Williamiston on last
Friday week, of which our fair corres
pondent "Maggie" gives a graphic
description, was a grand affair indeed.
Four thousand people present, of whom
fifteen hundred were mounted, while
there were one hundred and fifty colored
men in the procession. What does this
all mean ? Is it an idle show ? Not by
any means. It plainly shows that the
people of South Carolina are stirred
to the deepest depths, and that a great
revolution is near at hand.
" In the presence of the people of
South Carolina, and in the presence
;of my God, I pledge myself that if
Ielected I shall know no party; no
race, no color or condition in the ad
ministration of the laws. I shall
be Governor of the entire people of
South Carolina."- Wade Hampton.
I must say tbat the causes al
leged for the same do not apply
to the Eighth Circuit, over which
I preside. Nor do I believe they
have any existence as to any
other portion of the State.

Reliable advices from Ohio, Indi
na and West Virginia assure us a
omplete triumph in each of these
tates. 31r. Tilden's opposition to
he war has been wade the most of by
be Republicans. But it avails them
othing. The war is over. And it

THE 4 GERMAN VOTE."
Our naturalized fellow-citizens of
Tuetonic birth ought to be " mildly
but firmly " reminded of the, " not to
put too fine a point upon it," discour
tesy and impolicy of the course that
hs been pursued by many of their
papers and their representative men,
for some years; markedly and in
creasingly since the close of the Fran
co-German war. They are everlast
ingly prating to American citizens of
the "German vote," "what the Ger
mans will do" under such and such
circmstances, &c. Now, however
courteous an American, of whatever
political complexion, may deem it
prudent to be, for the time being, he
always feels outraged when reading or
listening to these quiet miatt'er-of
course insults to his country, its in
stitutions, and its citizens, including
himself. The American-born citizen
never wants to hear the "German
vote" or the "Irish vote" referred to
as an element in politics. Foreign
born citizens are exceedingly indig
nant at the mere mention of an Anier
i.an party, and are prolific in reasons
why such a party should be frowned
down in th)e United States; yet, in
the very same issue of a German or
Irish paper which devotes a column
or more to assailing a man charged
with "Know-Nothing" antecedents,
you will find a half a dozen paragraphs
calling upon Germans or Irish men to
cast their votes, as such, for this or
that man or measure. These remarks
apply, measurably, to naturalized cit
izens of whatever birth, and to the
papers printed in their respective Ian.
guages, and are written in a spirit of
kindness. We should be all Ameri
cans in this country, and should. ap.
peal to each other as such, and not as
Germans, Irish men, Englishmen, Ne.
groes or Israelites. And each of us,
native and foreign-born, should vote
on his individual convictions, and not
as one of the constituent .elements .of
a flock, a herd, or a manageable mob.
The German-Americans should re
member that naturalized citizens of
Irish birth were largely responsible,
by their clannishness, for the Know
Nothing movement of hy-gone years
which is so much decried now a-days.
