it this matter of sale of
otteo into the columns

^ ??ViwjJuuiiwBu journals are raising a cry

-liaa taken np the matter, and has the
following in regard to the particular
BE? cain of ?'our honorablo representative:"
vv.V "It appears that at last, the Military
S Committee of tho House have discover

.-be able tu disprove the disgraceful
r>.. oharge brought against him ; but if the
case is clearly made out, not a day should
V> bo lost io expelling him from the body
' - ? which ho has disgraced."
pt Hut a little while ago, in the midst
of lho furor incident to "reconstructing"
Wi\ the South-wheu some of these carpet
buggers were working themselves into
the good graces of the colored people,
' by tneir lying harangues and empty
promises, tor thc purposo of extending
the Radical machinery, so as to control,
W? for "thc party of moral ideas," tho po
p litical power of thu South, and, more
especially and pnrticlarly lor the pur
'. ;pose of filling their own pockets with
plunder, so small a thing ns tho sale of
ti cudetship would not have been no?
ticed, legitimate business ! they would
have said to each other.
V Theu, the voice of tcuth, and thc
proclamation ot facts in connection with
-.'\ the bluckeucd history of these adven?
turers-thc slough of Northern com
munitics-was lost in tho din of
exultant shouts and hallelujahs over
? fullcu'nnd impoverished rebels, and thc
establishment of the Kingdoms of
Radicalism in their stead. It was all
?put down to the malignity of disap?
pointed rebels And so, the most
. corrupt characters-thoso of whom, in
exposition, thc most was enid in thc
public prints, from tho very notoriety
thus given, were enabled, in the outset,
to climb up to thc highest places.
Then, when tho wilber ing and blight
.< ing truth of Mr. Whittcmorc's Boston
antecedents, and other litt lo "games"
and "practices" of his (some of them
perpetrated on his own party, herc) was
~ published, and his attention was called
tborcto, by some of the more honest and
reRpootnblo of bis party, "oh," says bc,
"let'otn blow it out and bo douc-it will
all amount to nothing." And, then, to
himself : "Well, these things are leak?
ing out (o a damaging extent, but I'll
keep silence-that's my policy-put on
my dignity and assume silent contempt."
.Rut?a day ol more calmness and rcficc
tion has comt, and tho Republican purty
begins to find il necessary to purge
itself. It hus too much dead weight to
carry. And now the Republican press,
with the Tribune in thc lead, even talks
about the expulsion of these characters
from Congress. What will Mr. Whitte?
more now say? Coutinuc his "silence"
and "dignity" policy? Methinks he
will hear a voice, ???suing out from thc
rauksof lila owl) party, and touching these
things, pointing him tu thc hand writing
on the wall. And .since "silence, that
dreadful bell," bo his policy, let"ctcrnal
silenco bo his doom."
Wc hail all this ns thc coming of a
. belier day. Men so corrupt cannot con?
tinue lo occupy the high places of the
country. There must and will bc a
. " unity of all hottest clements to drive
AEiLUnOICD KV KMX DISTtlin.
ANCIi IN SI .ll J lill.
Weare in possession of information
and affidavits in reference to Kn Klux
disturbances in Sumter County. These
men called a'meeting n short time ugu
of thc people living in the vicinity of
' lho lato Robertson outrage. They
domouded that tho Democrats should
H cpa ra tn to one side and the Radicals to
the other. About sixteen colored men
went over to the D?mocratie ?ide, and
about eighty remained firm to their
principles. The latter wt to told that
thoy should not bc permitted to rout or
farm lands on their own account.
On th? night of thc second of Fobru
nry a party of armed men, iti disgusc,
entered tho dwelling house of Jacob
Drice, a mun renting land from Mrs.
Dell, and commenced abusing his wife
und children, ile wus absent nt thc
lime. 'I hey remained there about half j
mi bf ur, und then set tiro lo l?is barn,
V Containing ubout forty bushels of corn,
whioh was cul ?rely consumed. They also
fired two shots at. one'?X)f Price's sous,
evidently with the intent ot killing him
Thc only crime against these persons
rooms to be their adherence to Re?
publicanism. This family became so
i terror stricken that they laid out in tho
woods for many nights, expecting these
., villains to return and ctr ry out their
> threats. They have been taken caro of
by friends. No arrests have been made.
^H. This mun ?0 only ono of many against
; Who m thrusts have been made. An
address has been forwarded to members
i of rt?e General Assembly, asking that
M met h ing be dono to stay these cow?
ardly j0rscoui?ouH of un innocent and
4 \ inoffensive oluss of oit i/?ns.
' Wo gi.'t the above from tho Chailos
K Uu baily -Wtci ol Saturday;^,' which
. ... V - ?'. \ i
piper says that tho statements toad? ar?
; derived from a Radical so a ree. It also
tsaye that tho occurrence? mentioned are
probably the tame as those alluded to io
our Columbia dispatches.
Wie dispatches alluded to state that
Mr. Feriter presented a letter from
Coghlan, Sheriff ol Sumter County, with
the affidavit of Jacob Price, relative to
the barning of a corn erib and Ku Klux
outrages in said County. After debate,
it was referred to the Committee on
We know not whether the letter re?
ferred to details the statements as they
are above made, but this we know, that
what is there stated in regard'to a meet?
ing of the citizens and effort to foree the
oolored people into position, ia utterly
and entirely without foundation. No
such meeting was held in thatseotion
no attempt was mado to hold it, and no
wish or purpose to bold such a meeting
ozists or has existed.
From all the information we have
beou enabled to gather, the statement
in regard to tho buming is also false, as
also the iusults to the family of the said
Price. Some purtles, whether white or
colored, we have not been enabled to
learn, aro said to have waited on Price
and informed him that some of his prao
tiees were obnoxious. But no violence
was either attempted or threatened, as
tar as we have been enabled to learn.
The opinion is that no white man had
anything to do with even this muoh.
l?IANUFACTUKlToF I CK.
We learn from the Columbia Guar?
dian, that Mr. JOHN C. SEEOERS, of
that city, the well-known manufactur?
er of Lager Beer, has ordorcd a machine
for tho manufacture of ice, which ho
expects to rcoeive in the month of May
With this machine he will man niue-*
?ture ice sufficient to supply the city,
and be able to furnish the great summer
luxury at a cheaper rate than it has
ever before been supplied in Columbia.
The ice machines vary in capacity and
cost. That ordered by Mr. Seegcrs will
cost $9,000 00, with a capacity of turn?
ing out 1000 pouuds to the hour.
The matter of icc manufacturo is now
attracting attention in tho Northern
States, aud the opinion has been arrived
at, that it can be produced with decided?
ly less cost than it can bo gathered aud
housed for summer use. This calcula?
tion will apply with still moro advantage*
to the South, since the cost of transpor?
tation, which is a largo item of the cost,
would be save?! to us, to say nothing
of the loss in weight from melting, from
the time it leaves the Northern ice
house until it is weighed out to thc
Thc best and cheapest ice machines
are said tobe made in Germany. The
Guardian puts down thc cost of them as
foltuws : A machino turning out fifty
pounds of ?coan hour, 81,500 iu curren?
cy-100 lbs. an hour, 82,700-?OO lbs.
an houris 4,000-4)0 H.s., 86,000.
Chemicals sufficient to work them for
years aro furnished with thc machines.
Those of smaller capacity ore worked by
hand, the larger by a small steam en?
Tho cheapest machine above men?
tioned-81,500-would bc ample for
the local wants of Sumter, and thc es'ti
rtiate is that three hundred per ccut. on
thc capital invested, eau bc realized, and
thc ice sold at less than one half thc
I rice our citizens havo heretofore paid
Herc is a chanoc for a snug little
business for some one of our enter?
prising citizens. Who will go into it?
And at thc same time become almost a
public benefactor ?

Tho Bill which Gen. Butler reported
from the Reconstruction Committee on
Thursday, is not tho kind that is want?
ed. It makes the conditions which a
person must fill before reoeiving his
pardon, tooembarassiogand humiliating.
It arranges for public notice to be given
of the intention of each one to apply
before the oourts for a removal of dis?
abilities, and thus a sort of interest is
given to each occasion, aqd the recital
of a penitent's "acts done against tho
Government" is heard "by. hundreds
of persons who have done the same
thing, and an esprit is excited which
ia more apt to revivo old rebel ju?
bilation than to reclaim old rebel sin?
What wo want is something broad and
statesmanlike, something that is uni?
versal, which excepts nobody, imposes
no conditions aud asks no retractions,
but which simply says : "We forgive
you; go and sin no more." i here is
nothing to do hut to issue a general bill
I under tho clause of the fourteenth
amendment, providing that two thirds
of each house of Congress mny relieve
personal disabilities. Tho mode is so

we soe there is another loss by burning as woll
as othor grievous outrages alleged to the Ku Klux

against him. I wonder how much ho expects to
get from thc tax payers of Sumter out of this
titilo job. And I woudor how tunny moro enrn
