Thuraday, Maroh 15, 1877.
Hay" and the South.
President Hayes has mado a good
st4rt towards reconciling the South
to hi& administration. 11e has cut
1tm ftom the "bloody shirt" olemont
ot his party, and it is to be hoped, has
burfit the bridge behind him. Al
though he has made no public decla
ration of it, his intimate friends and
advisers declare that it is his inton%
,tion to disarm Southern distrust and
pnomnto peace In that section on the
b4sis'of justice and protection to all.
It is declared that the nomination of
Senator Koy to the Cabinet was the
initial stop to this -policy.
The fact that he has ignored in his
Cabinet appointments, the corrupt
manipulators and leaderL of the Ro
publican party, who surrounded Grant
and flaunted the "bloody shirt," so
vigorously during the campaign, gives
encouragement to the hope that he
desires to do justice to the South. The
first need of the South at prosent, as
Ben Hill declared the other day, is
r9form in her civil servico. He said
tho prosont fore is incompetent, cor,
rupt and oppressivo. The mails worm
b.inglingly handled; the customs wore
ilbificiontly collected, arid the revenue
officers were biutal arid wanton. These
wrongs dould be righted only by
putting botter men in office. This is
true, every word ot it, and if Presi
dent Hayes desiret to bring about
'peace and reconciliation, he can: bost
do it by removing the ignorant, in
efficient, brutal and wanton crow,
-who woro placed in oflico under Gen.
Grant's administration. There are a
fpw men, we will admit,holding minor
Federal officos in the South who are
competent aind honest, but a large
malLjori ty of them were put in selh,1y
onl~C necut of their poli tics, red~lgani
less of fift.ness 0r quoal ification. Thiei r
whole aim has been to drawv thieii
salarios and r'un the Radioal party
They would furnish evidence on
short notice to manufacturo material
for the "bloody~ shirt." Their entire
stock in trade ha's boon abuse, slander
and mnisreprosentatlion of the Southern
peoplo, and if Hayes desires to build
up confidence in his adminmstration in
the South, he must gel rid of these
fellows and appoint honest and com
petent men in their 'place. This it is
declared Is his purp~ose, and we shall
wait patiently to see him put it into
execution. Whether his object is to
divide the Southern Democrats and
build up a white Republican party, or
to subserve the best interest of the
country it is immaterial with the
Southern people at this time. Their
only desire is to havo good govern
ment and be let alone and allowed to
controll their own State affairs. If
this is dono, then they will give to
Mr. Hayes' administration all the aid
and lawful support necessary to make
it successful, but as to abandoning
the Domociatic party there is not
the remotest possibility of it. When
the time comes t,hey will be found
with~ a solid front, stronger than ever
and ready to wipe out the groat wrong
done thorn and the nation, by count,
ing in [Iayes by fraudulent means.

phns, dlia8 tilda Norrs--Opinion
by Willard, A. J.
A anal orde -was made In this oase
on the 27th day of February last past,
with I he concurrence of Associate Jus
tice Wright, at a conference of the
Court on that day, from which the
Chief Justice was absent by reason of
severe illness. The order In question
terminated the present proceedings by
habeas corpus by dischafging the
prisoner. At the request of Associate
Justico Wright, 1 suspended the filing
of the order until Saturday of this
week. On Thursday an opinion was
placed in my hands by the clerk of
the Court, put perting to be the opin
ion of Judge Wright, although not
endorsed with his signature in the
customary manner. This opinion was
accompanied by a memorandum hav
ing the signature of Judge Wright,
purporting to be a revocation of the
previous order in which he bad con
Without receiving any subsequent
communication from Judge Wright, I
attended the court on Friday, the 2d
day of March, pursuant to adjourn
It was my intention to express or
ally at that timo.the results to which
I had arrived as to the questions invol
vod in the case, but in consequence of
the absence of Judge Wright, the
court was necessarily adjourned, and
no opportunity afforded fbr such state
mont. I doom it important, in view
of' the important questions involved,
deeply affecting the interest and feel.
ings of tho poople of the State, and in
view of the anomalous and unprece,
dented charneter of tho recent pro,
coodings taking placo before a court of
last rosort, to put on record a brief
statomont, of the results arrived at by
myself, intending to place them in the
form of a formal opinion at the earli,
est practicable moment:
My conclusions are:
1. Tfhat, according to the returns of
the manaigers of clection in tbe several
co)untieLs, mud:io in duplicante, and( one
eopy t hereof trainimitted, sealed, to
the Seetar'y of State, and the other
tiled in the office of the respective
clerks of the courts of the several
counties, WVado Hampton received the
highest r.umber of votes for the office
of Governor of this State at the elc,
Lion hold on the 7th day of .Novemnber
That, such being the faict, lie bes
camne Governor of this State by the
direct declaration of the following
wvords: "The per~son having the high,
est number of votes shall be Governs.
or;" there having been no con test of
the votes for Governor, recognized by
a current resolution of the two houses
of' the General Assembly, as prescri,
bed by law, under the authority of the
constitution, contained in those words
"Contested elections for Governor
shall be determined by the General
Assembly in such manner as shall be
prescribed by law." (Art. 8, sec. b.)
That, inasmuch as no contest exist,
ed-under the constitution, and no two
persons had equally the highest num
ber of votes, the General Assembly
had no functions to perform, except
to establish by law a day on which he
should be installed; that day being re,
quired by the constitution to be du
ring the first session of the Legi5la
That the ody object of the opening
and publication of the returns was, in
such a case, notice of the f'cts disclos
ed by the returns.
I also conclude that the provision
declaring the person receiving the
highest number of votes, according to
the returns communicated to the Sec,
retary of State, and filed with the
clerks of the courts, is independent of
that preceeding it, prescribing the du
ties of the Speaker of the House of
Representagves, as it regards opening
and publishing the returns in the
presence of the houses; so that if the
latter is unperformed the former is
entitled to full force and effect.
2. I conclutde that the acceptance
by Mx. Chamberlain of the declara
tion of an unauthorized body to the
effect that he was elected Governor,
and taking the office thereunder, was
an unlawful usurpation of the office of
Governer, inconsistentwith the pro
visions of the constitution in ref erence
to the right to hold over until his suc
cessor is elected, and duly qualified,
and does not present a case for hold..
ing over within the contemplai,ion and
intent of the constitution.
8. I conclude that Mr. Chamberlain
is not capa~ble of being duly recogniz,
ed as do facto Governor, as he is with
out the recognit.ion or cn.opnation of'
t, popmr branch of the Gjo'a As
spbly"and b reason thererf In

Violence in South Carolina.
Under the above sensational head.
ing the New York Tribuno publishes
a letter signed Radix, and dated
Greenville, S. C., February 8, which
gives a highly colored and altogether
one sided account of tho difficulty be
twveen ore Redmond and a United
States Marshal named Barton, which
occurred in Pickens county on thec
20th of January last.
This~ ano'vmfons writer endeavors tob
make political capital out of the oc,
currience, by rpr5-sn ting the pole
of Pickens as symnpathiiing with out
laws against the Governmon t, andl
then adding that Piokons gave Wade
I1ampton 1,800 majority. T1he truo'
account of the whole affair, as given
under' oath by the Intendant and
citizens of Easley Station, was pub,.
lished in T1ho Newvs and Courier of'
January 27. From that a:coulnit it
appear's that Bairton and his g
captured Redmiond and took away
from him his horses, wagon and goods,
and also robbed him of *163 which he
had in his pocketbook. Redmond
escaped, and afterwards fired on the
Marshal 's party, wounding two of
them. Several days afterwards Red.
mond got a party' together, and wont
to Barton's house and oompelled re
stitution of the money and horses; or
at teast made him give up other mon
ey and hot ses in plaee of them..
The people of Easley seemed to
look cn Redmond and Barton as a
couple of scoundrels, with whose
quarrels they had nothing to do. They
did not help Barton, neither did they
help Redmond. Barton's conduct
justified them in this opinion. IIe and
his party visited the house of a Mr.
Popper in the middle of the night,
w'used the family, and w ith guns
leveled at their beads, compoiled ohm
to provide fire and supper. The
United States deputy marshals, are,
too frequently, a set of' ruffians, with
out any regard for theo people among
whom they are sent, and who imagine
themselves entitled to raniso .black
mail, and steal and capture. all they
can lay their hands on; and, when
they arrest a man on suspicion,. seem
to think they have the right to kill him
on the slightest appearance of, an at
tempt at escape. ,A year ago one of
these deputies murdered a pr'isoner at
Belton, in this State, and, so tar from
ever having been punishod, he is now
a mail agent on th)e Air L1ine Rail
road. What wonder is it, then ,that
the poople look on these marshals as
rogues, rather than officors?.
lIfthe strolling Yankees, who pick
up a living by swindling the Southerrr
people out of their money for all sorts
of patent humbugs, will insist on write
ing to the .Nortborn papers everything
llousthat they can hoar or invent,
tistleast the duty of those journ
al ofind out the truth and suppress
the falsehood; and, if the truth is
sometimes against us, to consider
whether disregard of' law is not the
necessary anid inevitable consequened
of misgovernment and opprossion.-.
