Thursday, June 1, IS7<?.
Wc publish ou the first page of litis issue,
from the Koowee Courior, one of tlic best Articled
wo have yet read on the subject of "organi
zation." The article is mainly addressod to
the rotors of Oconeo county, but is equally
applicablo to the voters of thia County, and wo
auk them to read it carefully and weigh the
arguments without prejudico. If thoy will
do this, we feel assured that no intelligent
Domoorat can como to but one conclusion, and
that is, that every word ie true, and that the
only hope of redemption from Radical thralluuiu
lies in thorough organisation ?nd consort
of action amongst tho whito neoulo" of
Tierroponlj the Attorney General, succeeds
jiokor player Sclionok, as Minister to
England; Taft, tfocretary of War, succeeds
lMerrepont as Attorney General, and I>otn
Cameron of Philadelphia sucocods Taft uh
Scoretary of IPar. With throe aces to draw to
Grant expecta to beat Bristow'a flush and

carry off the stakos.

If (he system should bo adopted, it Will disarm
tho opposition of the cry of "clique," or "Court
House Iting," This haB beon erne of the strong
carda of tho opposition in tho past, and they
have boon successful by it in soouring tho aid
and support of volors who claim to be Democrats.
It has been repoatodly assorted by
this class ?f voters, that if the Democrats
would adopt some plan of making nominations
by which a full and free ?xprossion of
prctcronce Tor candidates could be had, they
would cease their opposition, and come squarly
:nto tho ranks, and voto tho nominated
ticket. If tho plan is adoptod, (and wo apprehend
but little doubt of it,) an opportunity
for tosting tho siucority of their declarations
will be atfordod. Every voter in the County,
provided ho is a member of some club, will
have the opportunity to cast his voto and use
his influenco for tho candidate of his choice,
for any Connty office. The votes aro to bo
counted in the presence of tho club, and (lie
name of each oaudidato with the number of
votes he receives, sent up through delegates
choscn by tlic olub to the County Oonvcntion,
when the whole number of votes received by
each condidate in all the clubs is to be ascertained,
ami I he man recoiving the great ost
number, declared tlic nominee of the party,
for the ofiioo for which he was voted for. This
will be, virtually, an election by the people,
and no one can Bay that the candidates were
brought out by a "Clique" or' Court House
Ring." Tlio mouths of disappointed aspirants,
malcontents and disorganize , will be
effectually shul 011 this hobby, and tlioy will

^ 1 ^
the night of the 17th instant, tho most
I fiendish and brutal murder we have ever read
j ui, ucuuirt'n in uwuihui.'iir uic
Abbeville line. Mr. John L. Harmon, nged
seventy two, and his wife, Mrs. Harmon,
aged some fifty years, were murdered by ne
groes in their own house. Ono of tho fiends
was arrested, when he made a full confession.
We have not room for all the particulars of
the murder, but clip tho following from tho
"The confession of Austin Davis amounted
to this: The schcmo had been concocted a
week or ton days before tlie pcrpclration.?
Some dozen or more negroes were in the secret.
The actual perpetrators, however, are
the men now under arr st. .Stephen Lake
struck Mr. Harmon the first blow on tho head
with a .stout dogwood club, then n .second
Mow, which fcllod him. Mrs. Hurmon
shrieked. Another negro fellow Ktruck hor
to the floor, also with a dogwood club. Slic
fell faco downwards, nnd was dead. The
negro preacher now enters, and, lifting her
body, cuts her throat from car to car. The
body drops again upon its face?the hands ho
hidden that the numerous costly rings were
not taken off Ihnm- Tlmn Mm Vimlw t\f Mt>
Ilnrmou in turned over. 11 o is not quite dead,
and one of the fionds strikes him a torrible
blow upon the forehead, smashing it entirely
in. And again tho proacher wields his
knife. Mr. Harmon's throat is also out from
ear to oar.
"And now commonces tho saturnalia of
plunder. The negro women appear upon the
scene, and there lu a "general row" (l)avis')
words) over the body. The women wrangle
over silk dresses and jewelry, while the men
ransack the whole houso. "They strive to
distribute the booty "equitably." Everything
movable is oarried off And now gallons of
kerosene oil are poured upon the bodies of
(lie victims, and tho floor in saturated. Mrs.
Iliirmon'a hotly is so saturated that when the
clothes arc taken oil the skin adheres to them.
Then a negro woman applios tlic torch, and
the murderers depart. The blood, flowing in
streams, mixes with tho oil and stays the
"Tho details arc so numerous and so shocking
that it is impossible to record them.?
Such devlish brutality was never before
Tho criminals were six in number, all colored,
their names being: Larkin Holloway,
.Stephen Lake, Austin Davis, Marshall Perrin,
JelT .S'utilow and I'M Perry.
Mr. Harmon was a highly respectable citizen,
and before the war was a man of wealth.
Since tho war he has not possossed much
wealth, though ho was in good circumstan
cos. Tiic citizens were ho incensed at the
horrible outrage, Ihey at once, ns noon na
the guilt of the parties waa clcarly established,
resorted to lynch law.
The following conclusion of a dispatch to
the Nowa and Courier, tells iho rest of the
story. The tolegram is dated Abbevilla C,
II., May 21th.
'To day they paid the awful penalty of
their crimo, the pooplo having decided that
(he machincy of the law waa too dilatory a
mone 01 treating such wretches. There was
no sccrccy whatever in the manner of their
execution. The prisoners wore faken forcibly
and in broad dnylight from tlie custody
of lhe sheriff and shot to death in the presence
of three hundred citizens. Tiie firing
party was composed of no less than one hundred
men, and the hundred shots put ft speedy
end to the guilty wretch"1 . Ilolloway and
Pen-in were prcachera." I
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER
Washington, May 24,1870.
Jtt lias bocomo ovidont within tho
past wook, that tho Ropublican managora
aro laboring to dissominnto tho
idea that tho coming Prosidontial oloolion
will bingo upon tho Ootobor oloo
tion in Ohio. Tho Republican Organs,
undor tho immodiato control of
tfco party managers horo, announcod
immodiato!y aftor tho Domocrntic
Convontion in Ohio last wook, that
as Gov. Allon was dofoatcd last fall,
tho Ropublicans would bo cortain to
oarry Ohio in'Ootobor, and that that
would rosull in tho dofoat of tho Domoorntic
party in tho gonoral clcction

T> ..? iAk.iK
iuw j\u|mi ui luiui uifn, jjuo luitu 111 tuu
hopo that it may discourago weakkneed
Democrats. I lb uttov falsity in
shown by tho simplost calculation.?
Thoso Southorn States which wo arc
oovtain to oarry, with Now York,
Now Jorsoy and Connecticut, will,
with tho addition of California and
Orogon, givo us a majority in the
Electoral Collego, an<l oloct a Democratic
President. With a candidate
who can carry tho States named, tho
Uomocratic party cannot oo uoicntca.
A rofcrcnoo to tho figures will show
that if wo carry Ohio and Indiana,
and loso Now Yorlc and Now Jersey,
or Now York and Connecticut, wo
shall bo defeated. But if wo carry
tho last named States, and loso Ohio
and Indiana, will win. Wo don't
intond to loso Ohio and Indian, wo
intond to carry thorn both. Hut
it is just as woll that our llepubliean
friends should understand that tho
Domocratio party doos not dopend
on ihoso Statos for sucoesa, and that
thoir loss cannot defeat us.

I have ft little story to tell of Mr.
Ferry, the Michigan lumber dealer,
who presides over tho Senate. Tho
Senator ia young, rather good looking,
and is unmarriod. lie is a member
of the church, President of tho (Jon>
grossional Tcmperanco Society, having
taken tho placo of Vico-Prosidont
Wilson, and has tho reputation of
being a romarKaoiy moral man. l
have just heard ft story, however,
which ruth or shakos my belief in hid
excessive chastity. A young lady,
good looking, intelligent, and above
reproach an regards morality, was riding
in tho horso ears the oilier night,
with Mr. Fcny, whom she know by
sight, sitting vis a vis. Tho Sonator
cast sovoral anxious glances toward
hor, but recoivod no oncouragomont.
Singularly onough, tho businoss ongagomonts
of tho Senator required
him to leavo the ear at tho sumo timo
tho lady alighted. Tho routo thcnco
to hor homo lay through a park which

ftnd considerably frightonod iomalo.?
"I sav this ia ft lovely evening," res
pondod tho Senatorial himbor dealer.
Slio Btoppod in tho walk, hoping that
ho would pans on, hut ho failed to tako
tho hint, and ntjain obtrudod his viows
in rogard to tho wcathor. "Sir," said
bIio, indignantly, "I know who you
arc, nixl if you valuo your roputation
3'ou had hotter pans on. If you daro
tii speak to mo again, I will call tho
police!" It is needless tu nay that if
tho lumber dealer failed lo tuko tho
hint, ho minded tho kick, and passed
oa without annoying tho young lady

Tho friends of Hon. Tlios. Swann,
of Maryland, aro nctivoly arid earnestly
urging him as a suitable candidate
for tho St. Louis nomination. Mr.
Swann is a man ot a high order of ability

It It am been understood, ovor ninoo
?Snperviftor Tutton, of Ponnyfdvnnia,

thereby oausing a loss of many millions
of dollars to tho Troasury, ho is to be

TUTTON 18 A RF.NENUE DETEOTIVK,
a spy paid by tho Govornmont to inform
on taxpayors and rovonuo oflicors
11 is business is, historically, political^',
socially, literarily, dramatically and
literally, disreputable. .He is a com.
trion informer, and tho elements that
go to mako up that aort of eharnetor
noed not bo descanted upon. To lio,
to dccoivo, to luro, to soduco, to seok

to put up jobs, wiito decoy.lottera, soil
illieit goods as bait, and lay traps pf
all sorts for tho woak and unweary?
theso aro tho dovioos of a dotoctivo.
It is a bafo rule to disboliovo all dotectives
on oath, unless strongly corrobo*
rated by roliablo evidenoo. Tutton
naa rooenuy neon rominaoa ny <jommissionor
Pratt, rn a aharp lotter, that
ho ia nothing raoro than a dotoctivo.
It scoma that tho suporvisor, that ia,
Boaa Spy, ol tho Internal lievontio in
Ponnyalvnnia, livoa in Downington,
Chester County, and that ho opened
an oftlco in hiaown houao and chargod
thn Government rent for it, which wo
may bo auro waa equal to ita valuo.?
Commiasionor Pratt eould find no au^
thority for tho payment of this rent
under tho law, and also thought Philadelphia
the proper locality for the
Supervisors offioe; ho he dirocted Tutton
to loeato in a room fiirniahcd

Tutton, big willi tho consciousness
of powor gained in Having Bnbcocic,
declined, and nskod Commissioner
Pratt's authority lor the change.?
Whereupon, the heavy ex Sonator
from Indiana, eamo down upon Tutton
with a notification that lio was
nothing but a detective, and a subordinate
of tho Uominispioner j which
"reason why," couched in somowhat
tart phraseology, has boon reproduced
and posted up around tho Custom
House of Philadelphia, for tho amusement
of tho tidowaiters and othors.?
Still, Tutton is more of a man to
Grant's liking than (Jomly is, and tho
chances aro in his favor. .Republicans
in Philadelphia Imvo taken tho alarm,
and nskod tho President to dosist, on
tho ground that it will injuro tho party,
boeauso tho pooplo will supposo
that Tutton's appointment is a reward
iov iiio liabcooic lotlor. bo tho pooplc
will. And tho pcoplo nro right.
The Negro StrikoTlio
rice planters on tho Combahec and other
rivors of tho low country, recently reduced
the price of day laborora from fifty to forty
cents a day, or rather tho prioo of tasks, for
if wo understand tho system of work on these
plantations, it is to give (ho laborer a cortain
prioe for a certain amount of work. Tho
planters hnvo been paying fifty cents for the

still works l>y tho task and when ho finishes

in fishing and loafering. I5y working alt day
ho could mako one dollar just as easy as fifty

Uadical politicians revived under the proa
pects of an opportunity lo re-engraft t hem selves
in the nc-groo's favo**, and they seized
upon it and advised ft strike, which is likely
to end in trouble and disaster to the laborers.
They have sinco been roaming the country ami
forcing all other laborers to join the strike.?
whipping many who were not disposed to
yield to their unreasonable demands. There
has been no outrages or violence committed
by then", upto this time, but it is evident that
they cannot hold out natch longer, and wil]
bo forced to submit and go to work or to
committing depredations on the property of th?
planters. The Governor has been appealed
to, to restore order and preserve the peace,?
The only steps thus far taken by him, Is the
appointment of a good citizen as trial justice in
the disturbed district, but he will evidently
bo powerless to restore ordor unless he bat
a force to sustain him. Tho Charleston Journal
of Commerce appeals to tho Governor tc
call for the aid of national troops in dispersing
the mob rioters. This is a course that we enr
not approve of. The Govornment troops have
no right to inter<erc with local affairs, ami il
the Governor desires the aid of an tirraod
force to restore order lie can get it at home ii
he makes a call on the proper class of citizens
There is much excitement over the ufflii
