Crime Decreased Under Hamp
The Editors of the Charleston
News and Courier a short while ago
addressed a note to the eight Cir
cuit Judges, requesting them to
state "whether there has been since
the installation of Governor Hamp
ton, a diminution in the number
and degree of crimes committed in
South Carolina, especially of crimes
committed by whites against col
ored persons." Judge B. C. Press
ley, of the 1st Circuit, since Hamp
ton's installation, has held Court
in Sumter, Clarendon, Williams
burg, Georgetown, Chesterfield,
Marlboro, Darlington, Marion and
Horry, and "finds the criminal
dockets very much lighter than they
had been." Only one of the cases
was an offense against a colored
person by a white person.
Judge A. P. Aldrich, of the 2nd
Circuil, has held Courts in Ches
terfield, Marion, Darlington, Marl
boro, Horry, Kershaw, Edgefield,
Lexington and Richland. He says
where one offense has been com
mitted by a white man against a
negro there are ten offenses by ne
groes against whites. He likewise
testifies to a diminution of crime.
Judge Slaw, of the 3d Circuit,

Judge Hudson, of the 4th Cir
cuit, has held Court in York, Lan
caster, Chester, Fairfield, Newberry,
Laurens, Union and Spartanburg.
The offenses committed were most
ly of colored persons against whites.
A single instance of crime or vio
lence by a white against a black
at Winnsboro a white man killed a
negro in self-defense. In the four
Counties last named the dockets
were "astonishingly small." There
is a marked diminution of crime
since Gov. Hampton's installation.
Judge Kershaw, of the 5th Cir
cuit, says a great diminution of
crime has taken place since the in
stallation of Gov. Hampton. In
the Counties of Oconee, Abbeville,
Pickens and Anderson, where he
recently held Court, there were but
five criminal cases, and not one of
-the cases on the whole Circuit (the
8th) involved a breach of the peace
on the part of a white man against
-a colored man.
Judge T. J. Mackey, of the 6th
Circuit, reports that in his Circuit,
,with a population of 100,000, "not
one negro has lost his life at
the hands of a white man during
the past nineteen months, while
during that period there have
been but three homicides." He
bears the same testimony to the
marked diminution of crime since
Gov. Hampton's installation.
Judge W. H. Wallace, of the 7th
Circuit, says that since the installa
tion of Gov. Hampton there has
been a most marked decrease in the
number and degree of crimes in
Judge Thomas Thomson, of the
8th Circuit, does not remember a
case of violence by a white man
upon a colored person. Crime has
The Newos and Courier adds the
following: To sum up, only two
cases of "crimes committed by
white persons against colored per
sons" since the installation of Gov.
Hampton have come to the know
ledge of the Circuit Judges, and in
one of these cases the act was com
mitted in self-defense. There is a
diminution every where in the nrm
ber and degree of crimes, and the
confidence of the colored people is
shown by their preference for white
jurors, a confidence justified by the
leniency with which colored offend
ers have been treated. With this
exhibit before the public we assert,
without the possibility of success
ful contradiction, that the Demo
cratic party has protected the per
sons, rights and property of all the
people. More than this, the assur
ance that crime will be punished
has prevented persons from taking
the law into their own hands, and
has exercised a salutary effect upon
the criminal classes. South Caro
lina, under Democratic rule, is as
peaceful as any State i: the Union,
North or South, and in no State is
life or property better guarded or
The Editors of the .Vewos and
Courier also interviewed the Solicit
ors of the State, whose testimony
coincides with that furnished by
the Judges. The Solicitor of this,
the 7th Circuit, says : Generally in
this Circuit crime has largely de
creased since the inauguration of
Democratic jurisdiction, say eighty
per centum. There was a large
number of convictions in 1877 for
offences committed previously,chief
ly for larceny, burglary and arson.

The Sumter Vatchman urges
the Democracy of Somuter County
to send Westberry, one of the Fe
publicans who went over to the

and the Beaufort Tribune asks,
"would it not be well for the Dem
ocracy of Beaufort and Hampton
to do likewise with Hamilton and
Myers, (both colored Republicans)
who are equally deserving of re
ward ?" Stmter and Beaufort can
run their own machine; but thatis
very strange talk from Democratic
newspapers. For one good deed
they would reward Republican ne

hundreds of white Democrats in the
Counties whose whole lives have

WASHINGTON, A. C.,
August 28, 1878.
Mr. Blaine is an .ingenious person.
lie has figured out a nomination in
1880. His friends have heretofore
;tated that he did not expect to be a
3andidate at that time, but they say
othing of the kind now. The Sena
tor is doing what he can to push the
rant movement, believing that no
man can be nominated for a third
term. Let us suppose the Republican
Convention of 1880 near at hand, and
Grant the principal figure. Blaine,
by right of his large vote in the Con
vention of 1876, and of his constant
prominence in affairs, can be brought
forward at any momen't. If Blaine's
belief as to a third term nomination
is correct the nomination will almost
certainly fall to him. No unknown
person will be taken while Hayes is
remembered. No soldier is available.
To nominate any tried politician over
Blaine would be madness. Hereafter
we may expect the Blaine press to
look kindly upon the Grant movement,
and to keep that impossible candidate
prominently before the people for a
year more at least.
Secretary Sherman made a speech
in Ohio yesterday in answer to Senator
Thurman. He is a politician and
only a politician, while Thurman is
much more than a politician. If
there are any flies on the barn door of
the great Senator, Sherman will see
them, but to the door itself or rich
harvest within, he will be as blind as
Bartimeus. His vision is not of the
kind that perceives such things, and
the day of miracles is past.
The New York Rmes says the
original Sherman letter to Weber and
Anderson, which has been more lied
about than the number of trout caught
by the senior Senator from Maine, is
in the possession of the Potter Com
mittee. Weber swoi-e that it was de
stroyed. Mrs. Jenks secured a place
in the New Orleans Custom House by
swearing that she dictated it to a man
now dead-not morally and politically
dead, like Sherman himself, but phy
sically dead. Sherman swore at first
that he didn't know whether he wrote
it or not, but, after Mrs. Jenks told
her story, swore plumply that he did
not write it. One member of' Con
gress swore he had often seen it, and
thought it was in Sherman's hand
writing. Nearly everybody that hgs
testified has had something to say
about it. The Committee, which will
not meet again probably for some
time, should have told us whether
they really have the document or not.
It is an important one.
I have not been able to figure out
all the predicted Democratic gains of
Congressmen, though there is almost
an absolute certainty of gain over the
present majority in the House of Rep
resentatives. Those, I should say,
must be false prophets who say that
the Republican delegation will be in
terfered with in Maine, or that there
will be gains in Massachusetts, or that
we shall carry the few Republican dis
tricts in the South without some losses
in that section. But there will un
questionably be gains in the West,
and probably in New York. Reports
from the West received here are spe
There has just been handed me a
written, statement that Secretary of
the Senate Gorhamn, who, with Hale
of Maine, runs the Republican Con
gressional Committee, is.guil ty of a
disreputable triek in expending the
money of the Committee. It is to the
effect that, upon being selected to
manage the Comnmitteo's affairs, he
bought for himself an interest in the
National Republican newspaper here
and is having all the Committee's
printing done there at absurdly high
prices. The amount of the printing
is enormous and Gorham's profits cor
respondingly large. If the story is
true it would seem that the stalwarts
have hardly a higher sense of what is
honest than the civil service reform
ing Administration itself. It is fur

this city was kept from exposing this
little arrangement only by receiving
quite an amount of the same work at
profitable prices. 80DON.

The occurrences which took place (
at the late meeting of the Convention
were disgraceful. A decent respeet
to the high and solemn duty which
should have animated the breasts of

cause of the difficulty.
Now, I am a plain man, one unused

put a few simple questions to the mem

a paucity of pure, noble and talented
men in the County that none other g
can be found than these two gentle
men? Is the whole County to be
kept in trouble, turmoil and ill feeling
because a clique or faction should pre
fer the one or the other? Is it by no
means certain-can it possibly be that
we cannot find in the entire length
and breadth of Newberry County,
men worthy of being sent to the Legis

a chance, who are now gloating over

This can be effected without any diffi

from which to make a selection. There

may not suffer by divisions, but be
preserved intact, I respectfully sug

the IDemocracy of the County in the

our invariable rule, we are compelled

I need not again express the hope
that the delegates will bear in mind
that they have been appointed to make
such selections as will benefit the Dem
oratic party; and that they will~ not
jeopardize its success by carrying out
their own wishes and partidlities.
When high and public trusts are
delegated, it becomes a solemn and
moral duty in the trustees to carry
them out in good faith and in due re
gard to the power entrusted-for if the
cause, the interest and trust is insi
diously betrayed or wantonly trifled
away, the people have a right to revoke
the authority that they themselves
have deputed, and to constitute other
better agents and trustees. Let the1
delegates do their duty and our Coun
ty will be safe.
I trust that they will remember the
proud period of our past contests, when
the banner of our party waved tri
umphant, and they will particularly
bear in recollection that these glorious
results were principally produced by
unanimity. Let them not-be unmind
ful of these truths-then when the
war-note shall be sounded we will go
to the battle-field in the plenitude of
our strength, assured of a just and
noble victory. A FARMER.

Dear Sir,-Your "vegetino" has been do- .
ing wonders for me. Hve been having the
Chills and,Fever, contracted in the swamps
of the South, nothing giving me ielief until
I began the use of your Vegetine, It giving
me immediate relief, toning up my system,
pufi 'ng my blood, giving strengt; were- fI
as all other medicines weakene me, and sti
filled my system with poison; and I am sat-.t
istled that if families that live in the aguie i
districts of the South and West would takse
Vegetine two or three times a week, the' in:
would not be troubled with the "Chills' g
or the malignant Fevers that prevail at
certain times of the year, save doctors' bills, a
and live to a good old age.

ALL DIsEASES OF THE BLOOD. If VEGE
TiE will relieve pain, cleanse, purify, and
cure such disease, restoring the patient to
perfect health, after trying different phy- ra
sicians, many remedies, suffering for years, ge
is it not conclusive proof, if you areasf
ferer, you can be cured ? Why is this med- PC
icine prforng such great cures ?' It of~
works i the blood, in the circulating fluid.
It can truly be called the Great Blood Pai-g
fier. The great source of disease originates
in the blood; and no medicine that does not Ii
act directly upon it, to purify.and renovate, W
has any just clm upon public attention.

ME. H. R. STEVENS:
Dear Sir,-I have used several bottles of
"VEGETlE"; it has entirely cured me of
Vertigo. I have also used it for Kidney ofi
Complaint. It is the best medicine for kid- bu
ney complaint. I would recommend it as a
good blood purifier. N. YOCUTM. *
PAIN AND DISEASE. Can we expect to en
joy good health when bad or corrupt hu- ra
mors circulate with-the blood, causing pain
and disease; and these humors, being '
posited .through the entire body, produwe
pimples, eruptions, ulcers, indigeston, cos
tivenesS, heajiaches, neuralgia, rheumatism,
and numerous other complaints ? Remove -
the cause by taking VEGETINE, the most re
liable remedy for cleansing and purifying.

Dear Sir,-I wish to informlyou what your
Vegetine has done for me. I have been -
afflicted with Neuralma , and after using
three bottles of the Vegetine was entirely ~
relieved. I also found my general health
much improved. I believe it to be a good
VEGETINE thoroughly era;dicates every
kind of humor, and restores the entire sys
