Gov. Hawpton's address before the
Winnebago Agricuitural Society, the
13th, has added greatly to his national
reputation. The Northern papers
speak of i' and him in the highest
terms of praise, as will be seen by the
following extracts taken as samples:

We Certainly approve of Gen.
Hamoton's Rockford address, not
merely as a brilliant piece of oratory,
but as being well considered, in good
taste, and the right temper. Though
it was an address before the County
Agricultural Society, on the occasion
of an agricultural fair, the public ap
pearance of Wade Hampton, of South
Carolina, before an assemblage of Illi
nois people merely to talk about agri
cultural matters would have been a
disappointment. Something else was
expected of him, and he knew it.
Many others, nearer home, could have
talked entertainingly and, perhaps, in
structively about farm topics, but there
was none other in a position to speak
with more authority, or more fairly to
represent the Southern people, in dis
cussing the relations between the North
and the South. No impartial person
who has read his address can deny
that he walked over this dangerous
ground in a manly fashion. His ad
dress was nowhere tinged with parti
sanship, nor did he show the slightest
rancor either a.s against his former
enemies on the battle-ield nor the later
enemies who helped to plunder his
State after the war. In grasping the
hand of fellowship that was extended
to him, there was a manly assertion of
self-respect in justifying the sincerity
of the motives which actuated him
and others like him in the war of the
Rebellion, while conceding equal
purity of purpose to those who were
opposed to him. The spirit and tone
of his address recall a remark recently
made by Gen. Joe Hawley, who said,
"I find no trouble in getting along
with Confederate soldiers," and added,
"when we find men who live up to their
ideas of honor and right, we shouldn't
expect them to'get down on their
knees nor ask them to take back any
There can be little doubt that men
like Wade Hampton in the South have
developed a stronger sentiment of na
tionalty than ever existed in that sec
tion before the war, and that their
struggle of late years has been for local
self-government against carpet-baggers
who had plundered them, and not
against the Union, the Constitution
or its amendments.
[From the Chicago Times.]
Governor Hampton's address was,
throughout, a political address, in the
best meaning of the word. It was in
the nature of an appeal from the
South to the North on behalf of po
litical fraternity and national fellow
ship. It was an earnest and eloquent
appeal on behalf of the Southern people
of the sincerity of their acquiescence in
the existing political order, and of
their desire to shake hands with the
Northern people in token of political
reconciliation upon a mutual under
standing that what is past shall only be
recalled as a light for our wiser guidance
in meeting what is to come. Its key
note was the declaration of the speaker
that "the chief thing'I had in view
in coming here was to promote a bet
ter understanding between the people
of the North and the people of the
South." As one of the most con
vincing manifestations of a sincere
desire among the Southern people for
peace and reconciliation under the
new nolitical order of things. -Gov
ernor Hampton alluded to the attitude
of the Southern representatives in the
exciting presidency contest last winter.
That Mr. Hayes was made President
by "the Souh,"-by the "people late
ly in rebellion"~-by the representative
"Confederate brigadie-rs," who have
been represented so assiduously at the
North as only waiting for an oppor
tunity to engage in another rebellion,
is a fact beyond any ground of dis
pute. Had it not been for the course
rbursued by the "Confederate briga
diiers," without one exception, in de
termining the Presidency coutest, Mr.
Hayes would never have occupied the
Executive station. Mr. H-ayes has
shewn his consciousness of this fact
in the course of his government to
ward the South. H is Southern policy
was its natural fruit. And the good
fruit which that policy has borne and
is bearing in bringing about a better
understanding and a more fraternal
feeling between the people of the two
formerly hostile sections, surpasses any
which there is a reasonable ground for
saying could possibly have resulted

M1 DE%a SIR: Your letter of the
10th instant was received last night
on iy return from Aiken court.
You enclose a letter of September
2, from Charleston to the New York
Srn, written, I presume, by the cer
respondent of that paper from Chailes
tou. in which it is made to appear
that [ advised the discontinuance of
the prosecutions against the Radical
ex-officials, with sundry other charges
which I cannot repeat in detail. You
say that the reading of this letter
zprodued a feeling of horror and
dread throughout the State, and many
of your (my) most devoted political
and personal friends are deeply exer
cised over it," and beg me to "brand
it in the most public and decided
I proceed to brand it by saying that
whecver says, or intimates, or hints
that I have advised the discontinuance
of the said prosecutions is a liar, and
whoever believes it is a simpleton.
Now, I think, the branding part has
been done, and for the publicity, I
will have to depend upon you.
This letter to the Sun is written,
as I am informed, by a Radical ex
official of South Carolina, now living
in Charleston, who got his position
by treachery, sustained himself while
there by duplicity, and having been
ousted on account of his imbecility
and venality, now seeks to make a
living by lying and slander. The let
ter which you enclose is a specimen
of his capacity in that line, and one
in the Journal of Commerce, of the
12th instant, wherein he refers to my
having purchased a "State warrant,"
is another. I never before heard of
such a warrant as he describes, and
the statement is, therefore, a lie made
of whole cloth.
It is bad enough to be villified and
traduced by Radical political traders,
but when one who has tried to do the
best he could for the State and the
restoration of good government, and
who feels that while he does not pre
tend to have been entirel' unselfish,
yet he made some personal sacrifices
for the public good, has to be sub
jected to the suspicion of his friends,
who ought to know that such state
ments are false, it is somewhat discour
I do not deny that I have exerted
myself earnestly to secure my seat in
the United States Senate. I have
felt that it was my duty to do so, but
I have made no bargains to secure
my election, as you know, and shall
make none to get my seat. My being
seated may not help the State in the
estimation of some, but the seating of
my competitor would no doubt be re
garded by all as a public calamity.
If I am to succeed, I must be allowed
to do so in my own way, and not
turned aside by every lying scribbler
who sees fit to slander me ; if not, I
had better abandon the field, and ei
ther let Corbin take the seat or some
other Richmond enter the field.
I do not mean by this that I am..
beyond or above criticism, but I do
mean to say that suspicions and
"dreads'' based upon such stuff as
that contained in the enclosed letter
to the Sun, which is false in every
essential particular so far as it relates
to me, is disgusting and absurd. I
have had nothing to do with the
rosecutions of the Riadical ox-officials.
It is not my business, and I have pur
posely avoided all connection with
them. I have expressed my opinion
to members of the committee and to
General Conner, the Attorney-Gene
ral, as to the manner of conducting
those prosecutions, and shall exercise
that privilege again whenever my
judgment loads me to do so and those
gentlemen are willing to hear me.
I think the committee of investiga
tion and the Attorney-General have
done well, and are entitled to the
highest commendations for their ser
vice, but I certainly have a right to
an opinion. My being a Scnator
elect surely does not deprive me of
this. If it does, the Senator elect
may go, and I will maintain my right,
and if scurvy scribblers misrepresent
my opinions and actions, and friends
suspect or doubt them, why I can
only despise the one and pity the
You need not have apologized for
having written me as you have. I
should have felt hurt had you not
done so, with the information in your
possession. I beg that you will give
this letter whatever publicity you
think the occasion requires. Thank
ig you for your kindness, I am, very
truly, your friend,

The coany Con vention.
We recur to this subject again,
because it is one of vital importance
to the Democratic party of the
County. There is evidently a storm
brewing in certain quarters that is
going to sweep away the last vest
ige of the straightout policy, unless
something be done to avert it. If
an election were ordered in New
berry to be held two weeks hence,
and if the Democratic Coanty Con
vention. as present constituted.
were to nominate a set of candi
dates, those candidates would cer
tainly be beaten by an independent
ticket. A large and respectable
portion of the Democrats are dis
satisfied with the Convention: they
think it has been in power long
enough, and they don't like to see
it perpetuatig its own authority.
They will not support that Conven
tion any longer, but will put their
own ticket in the field. The color
ed people, it is well known, will
vote for an iinuepen dent Democratic
ticket before they will vote for one
regularly nominated by a Demo
cratic Convention. We see the
danger. The rem,dy is clear. Call
a new Convention. Remove every
cause for dissatisfaction. Harmon
ize all elements of the party. We
are too weak to divide.
Many of the dissatisfied Demo
crats are men that cannot be driv
en. They can't be forced into sup
porting the Convention nominees.
The party lash has no terrors for
them. They are independent in
more senses than one. Yet if a
new Convention be called and new
delegates be elected, or an oppor
tunity given for electing new dele
gatos, these very meni will support
that Convention with all their might.
There may be another electioh in
this County soon. It behooves us
to prep ari. for it, and to take the
proper steps to secure harmony
and unanimaity in the Democratic
It is not our intention to usurp
the functions of the Executive Com
mittee or to obtrude unsolicited ad
vice upon that body. "I only speak
what I do know."
The I-HnAL, although preferring
a new Convention, will support the
old one as long as it continues ;
but there are many Democrats who
will not. What we have said then
is free from bias one way or the
ot~er. We speak for the good of
The Whippin!g Post.
Nearly all the State papers are
discussing the propriety of estab
lishing the whipping post as a
means of punishment for petty of
fences. Many influential papers
are in favor of it. They say that
the present method of punishing
for stealing, a crime so common
among the colored people, is alto
gether ineffectual; that they do not
care for imprisonment, and that
this mode of punishment entails e
heavy expense on the county, which
the honest people have to bear.
We are totally opposed to whip
ping as a punishment, because we
believe that the lash has a debasing
effect, not only on the criminal,
but on him who has to use it and
on the community at large. It
would drive away every spark of
manhood out of the criminal, de
stroy the last vestige of self-respect,
and then turn him loose upon the
community a hardened, disgraced,
desperate villain--the man all gone,
only the animal left.
Something should be done to
check these petty offences of which
complaint is so justly made. We
believe, withi the Pickens Sentincl.
that the best preventive is to es
tablish a system of "convict labor"
throughout every county. If a man
steals, instead of putting him in
the county jail to be fed at the
county's expense, put him to work
on the pulilc roads--they certainly
need it. Work is the punishment
mos~ t dreded by those who steal,
more even than the lash. They
steal to ke~m from workinz If
be removed. This plan has been
established in Georgia and has
worked admirably. We hope it
will be adopted in South Carolina.
The Eastcrn War is the most des
perate and bloody of modern times. It
is a war between barbarians with the
most improved implements for fight
ing. Much is said about the barbarity
and cruelty of the Turks, but the Rus
sians are about on a par with them.
Pretending to be ighting for the
Christian religion, Russia has the
sympathy of most Ch1ristiau people.
Relig,ion has nothing to do with it.
She is doing as she has been for years
-fighting for additional territory.
With a <iowinion more extensive than
all the rest of Europe combined she is
not satisfied. but wants more. For
years she has had a covetous eye on
Turkey, and has only been prevented
from invading her by the fear that other
nations would interfere. She never
doubted that she could subjugate the
country in short order. She deceived
herself. The Turks don't propose to
Thousands of human lives are being
sacrificed to gratify the ambition and
avarice of the Czar. At both battles
at Plevna the loss on each side was
tremendous. The last attack on the
city by the Russians lasted several
days. Soldiers were mown down like
wheat before the reaper's scythe. A
correspondent, describing the battle of
the 12th, says : "Gen. .Skobeleff (Rus
sian) lost 2,000 men in attacking a
redoubt, and 300 men in holding it."
At the battle of Biela the Russians
lost 4,000 killed and 8,000 wounded.
Such is the record day after day. The
accounts from the. seat of war are
heart-sickening. Wotwen and children
and the wounded soldiers are treated
with the utmost barbarity by both
sides. Such a war is a disgrace to
Europe and the Nineteenth Century.

revelations in regard to the late

simply to "high-sounding words,

FOR THE HERALD.
Our Washiniuton Letter.
WAS.INGTON, D. U.,
Sept. 19, 1S77.
One by one the roses fade. Mr. Haves
was the first conspicuous violator of his own
civil service reform in making a "progress'
through Ohio prior to the election. Then
it was annonnced in the face of a thousand
promises to the contrary that Denart'nent
clerks here this fall should have the usual
election leave. Now it is said that the c'vil
service order does not prevent "voluntary
contributions" of ofiece-holders for political
pur; oses. .Voluntary contributions" is
what the great bull-dozen Zach Chandler
called them when lie g.ve the clerks to
understand that they could do as they
ph ascd about giving, but they hu;st "give or
go." TN.uo clerks will be writing at a desk,
and one will be taken and the other left,
and the one that is left will be the one that
has made his "voluntary contribution."
There is a mild kind of curiosity here to
know what place Assistant Secretary Mc
Cormick will receive if he leaves the Treas
ury )epartmnent. IIe is spoken of, by his
friends, for almost every important place in
the Government from Minister to England
to Ass't Sec'y of the Interior. We know
that whenever he may go we shall hear of
him-through the newspapers. Ilis name
is one that McCormick will not willingly
let die for lack of newspaper putfery.
It is an ungracious thing to speak, save
in the way of kindness, of any lady, and I
don't intend to do it; but there is a silly
story going around in the papers concern
ing Mrs. Grant which ought to be corrected,
and which certainly was never told with her
consent. It is to the effect that an attache
of the White Iiouse, retiring from active
service on account of sickness, received
every month from Mrs. Grant a check for
$100 up to the time of his death. The truth
is, I believe, that through the kindness of
Gen. Babcock--a much abused man by the
way-the name of this employee was kept
on the rolls, and was paid regularly until
e died, but was paid by the United States.
The State D'epartinont hap no further fears
of a conflict with Mexico. Continued peace
with that country means ruin to those num
erous speculators who expected to enrich
themselves in various ways if war occurred.
Millions upon millions of dollars in "claims"
against Mexico would have appeared and
the aid of our Government have been de
manded to enforce their payment. I wrote
you lately of a Col. Johnson, who has over
twenty millions of dollars in such paper,
and he is one of many. Then there are
companies and individuals who claim that
they have rights in the great mines of
Northern Mexico, and they too would have
profited by war, for the almost certain re
sult of a contest would have been the ac
quisition of the Northern tier of Mexican
tats by us, ar.d these mining "rights''
which are not recognized by Mexico, would
have had a fairer chance of recognition by
Ex-Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Sawyer and other promninenTt persons are
being tried in our Criminal Court. The
barge is that while Saw~yer held thme posi
tion named above, he, a1ctinjr in collusion
with the other accused par'ies, secured the
payment of large amounts of money on
raudlent claims. It is not likely Sawyver
will be convicted, though the facts, as
stated, leave little room to doubt his guilt.
We all know that it is not always possible
to prove by legal evidence what appeams
plain to thme ordinary spectutor.
Payment of pensions through thme reduced
number of agencies is made this mouth for
the first time. There has been co,nsiderable
lelay not incident to paiyme~nts undier the
larger number of agencies. This may in part
be remedied. The extra expense of twenty
fve cents to a doilar, caused to many pen
ioners, is, however, a necessity of the re
auction. All the pensioners in Baltimore,
lor instance, accustomed to draw their
quarterly allowance without expense, by
imuply going to the agency in that city, are
now compelled, four times in each ya,t
prepare and execute papers and send them
to This city. In all cities where agencies
tave been broken up the same expense is
neurred. A calculation shows that the in
idual pensioners will in tis way lose twice
what the government will save.

ccause it is the best. It is purer, whiter,

A weekly journal, devoted to the interest
of Judaism and Humanity, Art, Science,
Literature and general Information.
The establishment of a Southern Jewish
ournal in the interest of Judaism and the
dissemmination of its truths, would, we
think, be no superfluous addition to the list*
of journals of like character issued at the
orth and West. Relying therefore on the
encouragement of our co-relgionists in
genera] and on the support of our Southern
brethren and friends in particular, we have
decided to venture upon this New Southern
Enterprise, and shall, about the first week
n September. present for the favorable con
sideration of the public,
THE SOUTHERN HEBREW.;
Combining all the requisites necessary for
carrying on an instructive and interesting
journal, it shall be our aim to submit a
paper, i-eplete with all that is calculated to
enross the attention of those eager to wel
come and entertain such a visitor to the
home circle. Under able managementin all
departments, with the aid ox ministers,
teachers and the native talent of others in
this section of the country, we hope to make
this journal a valuable adjunct tot the Syna
ogue and the religious school. A hearty
"God-speed" has already been given.us,-and
'resh impetusto our energy, which is de
ratifying to the laborers in the vine
THE HEBREW will -be the organ ofno
special class, nor will any particular shade
of opinion be advocated in iti columns, but
shall cheerfully endorse the right and the
truth whencesoever they may emanate. In
matters of religious opmnion, as well as on
any important subject, we shallbe Indepeni
ent in Everything-Neutral in Nothing.
This being the only Jewish journal Issued
in the South, THE HEBREW claims to possess
superior advantages as an advertising me
ium with rates equal to the lowest.
Wtyor aid and encouragement, we
trust to be able to realize every reasonable
