Address ofthe State Democratic r
The State Democratic Executive
0oJM*ttee yesterday adopted unani
mously the following address and or
'.:'dered1-it, to be published :
HEADQUARTERS STATE DEMOCRATIC
CoLUMRIA, S. C., Aug. 22, 1878.
To the People of South Carolina:
The State Democratic Executive
Committee announce to their fellow
citizens that the State canvass i ill
formally open on September 10th.
Already the counties in general are
ready for action, and the Committee
cannot doubt that the campaign will
- be as brilliant as brief.
Throughout the canvass the De
- ocracy of South Carolina will have
but one rule of conduct. The plat
form of 1876, adopted and reaffirmed
Sin 1878, is the supreme law of the
Democratie party. By it the highest
and the lowest are bound. No person,
or body of persons, other than a State
.-Convention, can change or modify its
Saise, provisions and patrotic declara
. ions. Within the lines of the piat
form the Democracy are safe. Out
Sside of it and beyond it, there is no
true Democracy in South Carolina.
No issue not made in the platform and
A.neonistent with it can be raised.
o issue made on the platform and
osistent with it can be ignored.
The platform of the Democratic
Ortyof South Carolina is at once a
iitory and a prophecy It is the
eoord of what is past, and the as
ZI surance of what is to come. In it are
ered Democratic principles and
-Democratic practice. The issue in
< South Carolina, as made by the Demo
Ofratic party, is not an issue of race.
0 'Onthe contrary, the objects of the
-Dem6ocracy, in retaining control of the
are to complete the reform of
to punish public criminals, to
in the purity and ability of the
ebvernment in all its branches, to
X,4ower the rate of taxation and lessen
'.?h&bnrdens imposed upon the people,
to ensure peace and concord, and, in
eluding all else, to give equal and CoM
e protection to every public right
person and property, in order that
the Government, in the hands of the
ratio party, shall be the Gov
nent of no one section, of no one
4 ce, of no one class, but the whole
ople 9f South Carolina, without lim
h iation or restriction.
N i-o far as time and opportunity have
~dmittd, the Democratie party has
ketto the letter and in spirit every
'~"j~egeor promise made in the plat
jom-of 1876. The State officers
-elected two years ago are again the
candidates of the party. With the
~same platform and the same candidates

- department of the State Government,

worth keeping, and will be kept.
SBy the colored Democrats, as the
State. jommittee believe, the solid
advantages of an enlightened and hon

eiated. They have seen and felt the
I -difference between integrity and ras

How Can narmony Be Se
The County Convention Thurs
lay, the 22nd, was the most inhar
nonious Democratic meeting, of
my kind, it has ever been our for
:nne to see. Faction reigned sn
)reme. Democrats were arrayed
igainst Democrats in bitter hostili
ty. And for what? Because one
;et of delegates wanted C. H. Su
ber for the Legislature and another
wanted George Johnstone. An
utsider would have supposed that
only two men in Newberry County
were fit to go to the Legislature;
and each faction acted as if it
thought the salvation of the County
depended on the election of its man.
So intense did this factious spirit
become that passion usurped the
place of reason, and it finally be
came necessary to adjourn the Con
vention, to give the delegates and
the people at large time and oppor
tunity for calm deliberation. Now
that such opportunity is given steps
should at once be taken to prevent
a similar occurrence. Newberry
County has already suffered much
from Thursday's proceedings, and
we cannot afford to further jeopar
dize her fair name and her most sa
cred interests for the sake of any
one man, or any two men. It is
not by any means necessary, and
we make bold to say that it is by
no means important, that either C.
H. Suber or George Johnstone shall
go to the Legislature. There are
other men as competent, as patriot
ic, as faithful, as well qualified in
every particular, as either of them,
who would serve the State and
County viith as much credit and as
much usefulness-men whose nomi
nation would put a speedy end to
strife and dissensions and restore
peace and harmony to the people.
The only proper and safe coarse
open to the Democratic Party of
Newberry County is to drop both
Suber and Johnstone. The friends
of both owe this much to the good
name of the County ; they owe it to
the cause of friendship between
neighbor and neighbor ; they owe
it to the peace and good order of
the community ; they owe it to the
whole State, which looks to New
berry to do her duty in maintain
ing a solid Democracy. As matters
now stand a compromise is utterly
impossible, and a victory to either
faction would be as bad as a defeat.
One will not withdraw from the
field unless both do. Then why
should both not agree, for the sake
of unity and harmony, to retire ?
If they will not, or cannot, agree to
retire let the people, who are the
friends of both, retire them. Only
in this way can harmony be se

The reports from the different
Counties represented were interest
ing and encouraging.
Teacher's Meetings and Institutes
elicited an animated discussion.
The following questions were
found in the "Question Box": Do
not the excellent Sunday School
papers and magazines of the pres
ent day take the place of the libra
ries ? What is the Superintendent
to do when neither he nor his mem
bers can lead in singing? Do Sun
day School celebrations at which
children are required to sing and
recite, result in good to the school?
The best methods of reaching
the masses ; the influence of the
Sunday School on the Church; the
best methods of organizing County
Conventions; International Les
sons; and the Influence of Sunday
Schools in Families, were among
the many interesting subjects dis

Democracy at Williamston.
To-day the Democracy of William
ston again throws its banner to the
breeze. At an early hour and a given
sigarl, they seemed to spring like the
historic clan of "Roderic Dhu," from
rors, and hills, and heath crowned
dingle, till they stood before us in
proud array, presenting a solid front
and unbroken ranks as if to say such
is Democracy. I think the object of
the meeting was a Battalion drill, but
I will not vouch for the assertion, be
ing deficient in the military branch of
education. Messrs. Orr, Brown and
Murray were the orators of the day,
and added new lustre to their already
widespread fame as -indefatigable la
borers in the cause of Democraoy. We
missed the soul-stirring music which
the Anderson band has heretofore dis
coursed on such occasions; but on the
whole the day was a pleasant one in
all respects, and we trust served to in
crease the roll and strengthen the
ranks of the noble Democratic army,
which fought such a perilous fight
and gained such a signal victory in
bhe dark days of 1876.
All honor to them and their leader brave,

Our Washington Letter.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
August 21, 1878.
11 Gen. Sherman has gone, as the
National Republican thinks, to the
Txs border, the act probably "meaus
busincss." It is to be regretted that
Conkling's Senate Committee, appoint
ed specially to take charge of our rela
tions with Mexico at a time when, as
now, the Administration threatened
w.4 r, did not make at least a par.ial re
port before Congress adjourned. The
fact that war with a weak and demor
alized people like the Mexicans can
have but one result is not an argument
for such a war. There is, practically,
no limit to our resources in men and
money. Of the latter Mexico has
none whatever. If war is declared
we shall add an immense strip of val
uable territory to our present domain,
assume several milli(ns of dollars of
doubtful claims against Mexico, add
also to our debt the cost of the war,
and still have the same border trou.
bles we now have. If there is any
honorable means of avoiding the con
test we should avoid it, and Congress,
if it assembles in time, should take
such action as will compel the Admin
istration to be cautious.
Various charges, which seem to
have some foundation, and which will
certainly be investigated, are made in
connection with the bill, passed at the
last session of Congress, by which the
United States general government is
made to guarantee the payment of
principal and interest of the District
Three-sixty-five Bonds. A New York
Bank held several millions of them
and made an enormous amount by the
rise in value of the bonds consequent
upon the act of Congress. It is
charged that ready money was paid to
some members and that others were
guaranteed the profits on certain
amounts of the bonds. Two members
of the Senate Committee on the Dis
trict of Columbia-both Radicals
are mentioned as having profited in
the last mentioned way. On the part
of the House Committee the names of
men of both parties are mentioned.
The subject is of great interest, as
these bonds have been largely pur
chased in the East and North.
If we are to believe that Kearney
ever had any commanding position
among workingmen, we must admit
that he seems to have lost it. Whether
his own coarseness and lack of method
have injured him, or his advocacy o:
Butler, will be a mystery for a long
time. Whether Kearney injured But.
ler or not is another. That each in
jured the other is likely. Kearney
may in some things be worse than
Butler, and in others Butler worse
than Keazrney. You remember the
indiffere.nce of the woman when her
husband and the bear were fighting.
It is easy for most of us to refrain
from shedding tears when we see
Kearney lose his influence with the
deluded laboring man, or when it be
comes plain that Butler has lost all
hope of preferment.
The Health Officer says Washing.
ton will not have yellow fever as an
epidemic this time, but he expects a
few cases. He will quarantine as soon
as the disease reaches Norfolk, the
only place from which it is likely to
come to Washington. The high gov
ernment officials have very generally
left the city, but upon engagements
made prior to the fever scare.

Address of the Democratic Ex
To the Democratic Ioters of Net- kn
berry County: Po
Differences of opiniocs and personal c'
preferences divide you. You who as ot
soldiers stood bravely shoulder to shoul- Ai
der in war, and who in peace have op- b
posed an impenetrable front to the v
tyrannies and exactions of a common al
foe, have become temporarily disunited t
at the very hour when victory offers ju
to crown your exertions. Personal av
feelings, assisted by unfortunate acci- is
dents, have unexpectedly disordered
your otherwise invincible ranks, and
threaten, unless speedily brought under de
your control, to work a disaster which pe
all the power of Radicalism failed to '
A crafty and remorseless enemy D
watches these divisions with gloating to
eyes. He expects you to be torn si
asunder by your own dissensions, and SV
upon the ruins of your party hopes to fi
build a more formidable structure of e
tyranny than that we have lately bro- t
ken down and trampled under foot. 1(
He counts upon tumult and even -
bloodshed in our ranks; he fancies
himself already holding the balance of
power between contending factions of G
Democrats; he dares to imagine for z
himself victory, power and plunder re
achieved for him in security by our tu
struggles to overcome each other. M
It is in your power, and in yours b
alone, to thwart these designs and P
make peace, harmony, success and r
blessings for the County. And to ef- I
feet these things, you have only to A
throw aside all prejudices, to forget ti
past differences, to bold your personal
feelings under control, and to set be
fore your minds, as the only proper s
objects of your efforts, harmony and
fellowship amongst yourselves and
peace and prosperity for the County. tj
The eyes of the State, and of other
States are upon you: the fair fame of
the County is at stake; your own o
honor and patriotism is on test; the
happiness of your wives and children,
the fortunes of an imnioverished and '
long ill-used people are in your hands;
the fate of our future times, in no 1
small degree, depends upon your action. ~
Is it, therefore, possible that you will C
suffer pride, prejudice or personal af- e
fection to render you careless of your
We trust not. We know too well a
your heroism and magnanimity in the a
past, to doubt about your bearing in '
the future. You know the interests si
of the people; you know the vast re- S
sponsibilities resting upon you; you
love your country too well to let any. I
thing stand in the way of its prosperi- b
ty; you are too wise and too noble, to ti
let any individual feeling, or any inidi- ti
vidual interest or ambition operate b
against the general welfare. h
We therefore implore you, by your I
dignity and sense of duty, by all the b
responsibilities and aims of an honor- g
able life, to subdue all personal thought ~
and feeling, and to join hands and
hearts in the struggle for the public
welfare. Let us move forward, as one
man, proclaiming everywhere and at
all times our watchword, "HarmonyA
and union amongst all Democrats, and c
down with all Radicalism !"

J. F. J. CALDWELL,
The September number of the ECLECTICL
MAGAZINE opens with one of the best
studies of American politics that has ever
appeared in an English periodical. It is
entitled "The Lire and Times of James e
Madison," but it covers a much wider field
than its title would seem to imply, and is,
in fact a comprehensive and philosophic
survey of the eventful twenty-five years
which followed the close of our Revolu
tionary War and shaped the political des- C
tinies of the country. Other articles, each C
admirable of its kind are: "The Mystery E
of' Edwin Drood," by Thomas Foster, an at- A
tempt to discover by analysis of the finished os
portion of the story what was the plot or te
"mystery" of Dickens' last incomplete g
work ; "Lady Caroline Limb," a vivid bio
graphical sketch, by S. R. Townshend- -tc
Mayer; "Freem'isonry," by Edward F.
Willoughby ; "Lower Life in the Tropics ;"
"Johnson without Boswell," by William
Cyples ; "What the Sun is Made of," by J.
Iorman Lockyer; "'Stray Thoughts en -
Scenery ;" "Posting and Post-Offices in
China ;" the third part of "The Earth's
Place in Nature," by J. Norman Lockyer ;
and ''Mr. Bryant and American Poetry.'' ax

an installment of Mr. William Black's

filled Editorial Departments complete a te3
number of great variety and interest.
