The Denoeratie National Con- 1
Charleston News and Courier.
The Democratic National Execu
tive Committee has decided that the
National Convention of the party shall
be held at Cincinnati on June 22.
which is nearly three weeks later than
the time appointed for the assembling
of the Republican National Conven
tion, which will meet in Chicago on
Two views seem to have been press
ed upon the committee. One was that
delay was dangerous because for sev
eral campaigns past the Democrats
have, it is alleged, been at a disad
vantage in seeming to have no policy
of their own and no decided plan of
action, but merely to have waited for
the Republicans to show their hana
and then act accordingly. It was
thought by those holding this view
that it was best at once to take the
bull by the horns, hold an early Con
vention, nominate the best man we
had, and thus as it were take the wind
out of the sails of the other party, and
compel them either to nominate a
good man or be at great disadvantage.
The other view was the situation of
both parties is critical, and that the
crisis in the country requires the cal
mest deliberation and the neglect of
no precaution. That present indica
tions foreshadow the nomination of
Grant by the Republicans as the in
evitable result of the skillful use of
pairty machinery. That such a nom
ination is the best possible thing that
can- happen for the -Democratic party. 1
and nothing should be done to i
terfere with such a probability. That
at any rate our action should be taken
with full knowledge of the tactics of
. The last view has very properly pre
vailed,and so far as we can read the signs
of the times there seems now little
doubt that Grant will be nominated by
the Republicans, and the Democrats
will have an opportunity of putting up
such a candidate that the issue will be
clearly presented whether this coun
try is hereafter to be governed by the
ambition of office-holders and office
seskers pn the one' hand, or the in
telligent opinion of the great body of
the people on the other hand.
. To make this issue as against Grant
there seem to us to be but two names
available for the Democrats-Bayard
and Seymour. Age and want of vigor,
not lack of devotion either to country
or party, appear'to us to remove the
latter from the field. With Bayard,
as against Grant, we believe that Demn
oeratic success would be assured. But
independenly of any consideration as
to who the possible candidate may be,

mittee in fixing a day for holding the

WAsumeToii, February 19.-The
promoters of tEe Grant movement in
Washington are relying upon the
effect of the re-appearance of their
candidate in the United States before
the meeting of the Chicago Conven-I
tion to give their "boom" a final im
petua that shall carry the nomination
of GrauM through with a hurrah against
Omthe return of the General from1
Mexico. it is intended that he shall
land at New Orleans and make a tri
umphant progress through- the South
ern States. The white people of that
section are expected to treat him with
marked consideration and respect.
They are being depended upon to give
him, in their excitable way, assur- i
ance of political support, and thus to
revive the Democratic Grant "boom'
about which there was some talk a
month or two ago. In addition to -J
that, it is believed that the colored I
men of the South will make an en- -
thusiastic demonstration in favor of
the General; and that the whole pro
ceeding will have such an effect on
the canvass for the nomination as to I
make the success of any other candi- i
date entirely out of the question.
The four circumstances upon which
the Grant men base their hopes, there-1
fore, are: First, the solid vote of ~
Pennsylvania, which they think Sen- i
ator Cameron has already secured z
for them ; secondly, the 70 votes of
New York State, which they believe .
Senator Conkling will be able to give
to General Grant ; thirdly, the solid C
vote of Illinois, which they do not yetc
admit that any other candidate can
break;j and lastly, the enthusiasm
which General Grant's return is ex
pected to inspire.
This combination is not one that I
is despised by the thoughtful friends e
of other candidates. They believe ~
that they can defeat it ; but they well
know that they will have no easy task.

ware, according to Col. Aiken's
dimile, form the Democratic kite,
while the Southern States are the
il-as he says, it is a very small
ite for such a large tail. It is no
onder, then, that Southern states
non, proud of their section and
,roud of the illustrious names that
aave adorned her history and the
istory of the whole country in
lays past, should sometimes become
impatient and "unruly"; that they
should grow tired of dancing at
tendance on a few Northern Demo
nratic States that have proved by
eir actions that they care for the
3outh only for her votes. It is not
pleasant nor dignified to play the
at to 'the monkey. We did it in
L870 and 1874, and again in 1876,
md are expected to do it again in
L880. The selfishness of the Na
~ional Democracy is proved by the
~act that in 1876 not one dollar was
urnished to South Carolina to ena
e her to carry on the campaign
successfully. She was left to fights
er battles alone, while the other
ide was supplied with money and
with arms without stint. It was
ien that we recognized in all its
frce "Nature's first law"-self-pre
3ervation-and saved our State. Be
muse we put the interest of 'the
tate before the interest of the Na
bional Democratic Party we were
incsed of selling out to Hayes. it
was the first time since the war
hat South Carolina showed any
wisdom and statesmanship. Had
;he made National politics the con
brolling feature of the campaign she
would to-day have been under the
ule of Chamberlain and his crew.
She has learned wisdom by experi
ee, and she is now reaping the
:enefits. in the ppproaching cam
sign she should not forget the les
ion that she has learned-that her
irst duty isto herself: that her in
;erests begin at home. Let her see
it that she preserve her own
tate Government intact. She is
1t yet free from danger. There
ire just about as many Republican
roters in the State now as there
ere in 1876; and we believe that
Gen. Grant be nominated by.-the
tepublicans he will bring out the
ll strength of that vote. An ef
ort will be made to carry not only
he electoral vote of the State for
he Republican party, but coupled
ith thatwill be anattempt to re
and the State Government to the
iepublican party. It behooves us
hen tobe onthe alert ; to watch
very movement,and to be prepared,
>y unity and harmony in our own
ank, to erush every such attempt
ni its incipiency. The Grant move
ient among some of our own citi-.
ens, claiming to be Democrats, is
ust the kind of measure to break
lown party lines, to blot out the
istinction between parties, and to
ave the way to dissension, disin
egration and defeat. Can a man
rho would support a Republican
or President be depended on to
.upprt a Democratic State ticket ?
Ve think not. He who dailies with
he Republican party is not to be
rusted when it comes to the pinch.
The only safe rule is, "touch not,
andle not the unclean thing." So
hat while we should as South Caro
inians look out for home interest
irst, we should use every effort con
istent with self-interest to aid the
ational Democracy. And our self
nterest can be just as well pre
erved by working with the Nation
Democratic party as in any other
'ay, and by so doing we maintain1
sur integrity and self-respect. It
a the misfortune of the South,
rouht about by the results of the,,
help for it. She has nothing to do
n naming the candidate for the
Presidency-the Northern Democ
rcy does that-bnt when the nomi
nation is made she will do all she
an to elect him. If the National
Democracy fails the South loses
nothing by the attempt; if it suc
:eeds she gains a great deal. But
whether it be failure or success the
South, by political honesty and in
tegrity, can best preserve her party
realty and unity and advance her
own home interest by such a course.
It would be not only base perfidy
but a short sighted and unwise pol
icy for the South to ignore the Na
Raking Up Old Scores.
The opponents of Bayard have
unearthed a speech that he made in
1861 in which he opposed a resort
to arms to force the seceded States
back into the Union. He took the
position that a war would be dam
aging to the North as well as the
South, and that it would be better
for the whole country if the South
ern States were allowed to establish
a government of their own.
Every fair-minded man knows
and will acknowledge that Bayard
was right ; . that, whether "States
rights' be a true doctrine or not,
the results of the war, even to the
North, is no compensation for the
loss of blood and treasure it cost ;
that both sections of the country
would have been in a better condi
tion to-day if the Confederacy had
been let alonb. Notwithstanding
these facts, it cannot be denied that
Bayard's speech will very materially
injure his prospects as a candidate
for the Presidency, and would
greatly lessen his chances for elec
tion were he nominated. He would
be called a "Southern sympathizer,"
"a friend to.r,bellion," and all that
sort of thing ; and no man can suc
ceed who has to oppose sectional
issues. The New York Sun, Til.
den's "organ", has been gloating
over the Ba.yard speech, and a few
days ago printed what purported to
be the speech in full, and declares
that no Democrat should be nomi
nated for the .Presidency who did
not favor the 'use of armed force to
suppress the Confederacy. The
New York World thereupon pro
duces a letter written by Tilden in
1861, in which he said that he felt
it to be a sacred duty to refuse his
sanction to an appeal to the sword
for the solution of the differences
between the North and the South.
The facts above stated would very
seriously impede the running quali
ties of either Bayard or Tilden.
"WI ho Was the Prominent Mer
Our neighbor, the Newberry.
HERALn, alluding to the "game of
tag" recently practiced at this place
makes the above pertinent inquiry :
"Who was the prominent mer
chant ? If it had been a poor white
man or a friendless negro stealing
a few pounds out of which to make
a homespun shirt, or to stuffa pil
low with, or to exchange for a peck
of meal, his name would have been
given, no doubt. Is a rogue's name
to be smothered up because he is a
prominent merchant of Greenville?i
No ; so much the more reason that
he should oe publicly exposed."
This is all true enough, but diid
oi.r esteemed neighbor not know
the name of said "prominent mer
chant !" If so why did he not give
the same to his readers, and thus
enforce his precept by his example.
That's just what's the matter with
one-half the world-they can see
the faults or shortcomings of others,
but not their own.
We did not learn the name of the
"prominent merchant" till too late
for the:last issue.
Our neighbor acted rightly in
rot publishing the affair upon vague
rmors. In its last issue is given
the name of the accus'ed party-E

Considerable fuss has been made
because R. W. Shand, Esq., the
Supreme Court Reporter, had the
last volume of the Reports printed
out of the State. An attempt was
made by some members of the
Legislature to require him hereafter
to give the printing of the Reports
to printers in the State.
Mr. Shand had a perfect right to
have the printing done wherever be
chose, and we don't see how any
fair-minded man who understands
the conditions of his office and sala
ry can think of blaming him in the
matter. He gets a salary of $1,500;
he is required to have the Supreme
Court Reports printed ; he must
turn over 100 volumes to the State
Librarian, for which the State pays
him $500 ; all the other volumes
belong to him. It is impossible to
see where the State's claim for the
printing comes in. His salary is
certainly small enough to justify
him to use the utmost economy in
saving what he can of it. As to the
$500 the State pays him for the 100
volumes, the State gets the books
cheap enough. W' nile the law on
the subject remains as it is now the
Reporter is right to get the print
ing done where he pleases, and he
would be silly to have it done at a
high price when- he can get it done
for a lower. The law is wrong:
the Reporter should be paid a rea
sonable salary, and have nothing to
do. with the Reports beyond pre
paring them for the printer. Then
they should become the property of
the State,; the State should have
them printed and bound; should
pay for the work ; should sell the
books throgh the State Librarian
and put the proceeds in the Treas
ury. That, however, is not the
Two Big States for Grant.
The New York Republican State
Convention met last week in Utica
to send delegates to the National
Convention. . There.was a spirited
contest. between the Grant and the
Blaine men. One member nomina
ted Blaine as "a Republican candi
date before whom rebellion dare
not raise its horrid head", meaning,
probably, that in -case of another
"rebellion" Blaine would hire a sub
stitute, as he did in the last war,
and send him to the front. Another
member, with more zeal than rever
ence, nominate Grant as "the God
of Battles" A resolution was offer
ed instructing the delegation to
cast. a solid vote for Grant in the
Chicago Convention-carried by -a
vote of 217 to 180.
Grant is now sure of Pennsylva
nia and New York in the National
Convention ; but the vote on the
resolution to instruct the delegates
to support him shows that - there is
strong opposition to him in both
States; the resolution was adopted
by the Pennsylvania Convention by
133 to 113.
When we say that Senator Bay
ard, of Delaware, is the best man,
among those mentioned, for the
presidency, we mean that he would
make the best President-that his
character, intelligence, statesman
ship and other qualities specially fit
him for being President- Whether
they fit him for becoming President,
as our readers very well know, is a
totally different pnestion. Political
parties, when the.y are nearly equal
ly divided and the contest is doubt
ful, do not select a candidate on the
basis of his fitness to fil the office,
but his ability to get it. They don't
ask who is the best man ; but who
is the most "available" man-who
will make the best run. As to
Bayard's "availability'' we must
confess (and it is a strange and un
precedented confession for an edi
tor) that we know nothing about it;
we have no means of knowing; we
don't profess to know.

A Jaunt to Bethel Church--An
Invisible Town---The Union
MR. EDIToR : Our journey to Beth
el on Friday was devoid of incident or
interest. The heavy sand for some
miles between Newberry and Pros
perity was something of a drawback
to travel. One new store in Pros
perity, with a handsome red brick
front and large, handsome windows
attracted attention. This is the store
of Messrs. Luther & Dominick. Our
destination was Smokey Town, which
is rather invisible, as only one house
can be seen where once seven or eight
stood, such as they were, log cabins
which have vanished in smoke or in
some other ~way. Some years ago a
small cluster of such houses was called
Smokey Town from the prevalence of
a hazy atmosphere in that vicinity.
Now the appellation of Smokey Town
embraces a radius of two or three
miles and it is now a city of magnifi
cent distances, as scarcely two of the
houses are in sight of each other. By
the way, one new residence, Mr. W.
Long's, near the church, is nearly
completed. Mrs. Cason has just com
pleted a new building, and Mr. Koon
is about to commence building. The
fields along our route were being pre
pared for planting, but did not present

that they did last October was a year

and sent to the house for a gun, bul
for some reason it was not sent to him
