COLUMBIA, February 26, 1870
The chief feature of public interest
today it? tho Scuate was a epccch by
Leslie, io which ho took oceasioo to say
things in hiB peculiar style, that made
Dot a lew of hi? colleagues realize how
"uneasy rests the head th'at wears a
crown " As you know, from past ex?
perience, he is ooo of those impulsive
mea, who, when the old Adam within
him is aroused, minces neither lan?
guage Lor truth, and no matter where
his shotts ?trike, whether it be ?0 the
heurt of friend or foe, whether they
lay bare thc rutteness of Radicalism, or
reveal the corruption of his own fellows,
he lets them fly like porcupine quills,
right and left, from a quiver almost ex
haustlcss. When unable to earry his
point by dip-low maoy, he indulges tn a
reckless species ot high jutnphaoy, seizes
on the very pillars of his party, aud
then if he fails, fi olios amid the ruins
which, Sampson like, he has pulled
around him.
This was his achievement to doy.
Cain introduced a resolution that the
time of final adjournment should be ex?
tended from the 1st to the 15th of
March, and speech after speech indica?
ted the purpose of the Senate to adopt
the same. Leslie, io his opposition,
represented the governor, who ia un?
derstood to have declared that if the
Legislature remained here ten days
longer they would ruin the Republican
party ; and doubtless he was also stim?
ulated by his own honest desire to en*
gage io smoethiog more piofitsble than
l?gislation. He Haid to the Souate :
"Here you have beeo three months
tod spent twoh uodred thousand dollars,
and ia God's nanoo what have you done ?
You have passed Aot after Act in be?
half of church organizations and fire
companies ; you huve sut here legislating
on the most trivia! of matters, and yet
have little more to show for it than a
pile of insignificant law? and your six
dollars a day ls there no shame, no
honesty, no sense of justice that eao
ttop you this side of that point beyond
which decency cannot go ? What do you
propose to do by staying here ? When do I
jou propose to finish your work? I
know, lt will be when the last dollar |
is gone and the last cent is spent.
Johnson, of Sumter, (colored.) Will j
the gentlemen allow me to ask a ques?
tion?
Leslie. No, sir. I'll allow you to
like your seat, and keep ii
J i I Ison. 1 want the gentleman to
understand that notwithstanding all
he muy say, I shall vote just as 1
please.
Le.dic. Ii he likos he can take his
conscience and chain it so tight that no
whip or lush can move it. He is like a
certain animal known io history, whose
hide is so thick you can't perforate
it.
Cain. I suppose you mean a rhinoce?
ros.
Leslie. Already this Legislature
atunds convicted before the country as u
failure ; and in the State of New York
there is not a mothen's son of you who
would not be held to a strict accounta?
bility for every act done and every
dollar spent. Yes, in South Carolina,
il you had a responsible constituency,
not one ol'you would ever come here
again, and 1 would say, Amen! In form
et times the General Assembly of this]
State sat from four to six weeks, and
accomplished something. You hove sat
here three months ; have accomplished |
nothing and you are not done yet I
know what it means. It means money
It means that to keep this wonderful
i body together fil teen days longer will
I cost the State fifty thousand dollars, and
iou want it. It means that you are
ound to ruin the credit of the State for
the sake of yourselves
Look at your appropriaton Bill. Why
if a roan should stand up and criticise
that document truthfully, it would damn
the whole of us Two hundred thousand
dollars at least, have gone, aod what j
have we got to show for it ?
Nothing ! Yet there are men io the oth
?riiouso who would not go home for a
whole year They would hang on like
leeches sucking the very life blood of
the State. God knows the time will
come-and it may not bo far distant
?hen all this action will be reviewed
Wc cannot rob tho widow or starve the
orphan, or oppress a people who are
already down, in vain. The reaction
*ill come. The citizens of South Caro?
lina, although literally exhausted, have
paid their taxes, to the best of their
ability,because io a despotic govern men t
taxe* are paid io proportion to its power
of despotism, but they knew that the
*?ift was short, and the timo might not
belar distant when our own acts would
be our own ruin.
Now as I said before, there is a long
hue of deficiency behind this Appropria
WO Bill. And we know it. That ?ill
Ju'?.begin to tell the amount which
wuth Carol'ua honestly owes, aod yet
?he 8enator from Charlestoo in the face
w this damnable fact has the hardihood
?o urge this Senate to romain in session
?oui the 15th of next month.
JiHiorj said that he would be one of
**y number of Senators who would agree
j* ?it here without a per diem until all
""?business of the session wan fin??h?d,
^ suggested that such a provision be
'?oorponued in the r?solution.
Corbin stated that such . course
would be unconstitutional tod not bind- .
iog. Every mau was entitled to draw
his per dien} until the close of the ses?
sion.
Beverly Nash, (colored.) It looks
very strang? that thc late Land Coin
missioner should be sn anxious to
adjourn Toe Senate passed an order
requiring him to make a report, but
instead of doing that he resigns his
office, and opposes the appropriation
intended fur the Gommissioo. lt hiokt
as if be hud discovered some hand writ?
ing on ibe wall, and was getting reAdy
to pack gp his traps and travel. The
gentleman says there is a deficiency in
the Appropriation Bill. Ii that be so
let UH know it. The people ought to
know it, and 1 propose that this Genera!
Assembly stay here until we find out.
Leslie. There is a olass of dirty,
yelping curs, who are always barking at
the Land Commission. But where is the
man, on or off this floor, who otu lay his
hand upon a single aot of that Commis?
sion, and say it is wrong. If you want
at. investigation, ask for it. I court it.
Who are my agents ? The very men on
this floor who aro making the loudest
noise against me. I have spent in
Richland County, for the purposes of
that Commission, fifty thousand dollars.
Who is my deputy from Richland ? The
Senator from Ktcliland, (Beverly Nash )
Has he reported to me? Not And what
is more, he dou't even know tho names
of the purchasers, or where some of the
land is located. Yet he wants to know
why I don't make a report. Let him
report to me, if he can.
Johnson, (of Sumter,) agata attempted
a question, but was told he had better
keep his scat; that he answered very
well perhaps for a camp meeting
preacher, but did'nt know much about
law or legislation.
Leslie oontinucd : And there is the
Senator from Marion, (Haynu, colored)
-another of my deputies. Have his
constituents paid a dollar for the land
they have had from the Land Commis?
sioner? No, not one. Why don't he
attend to his business and give mo the
information I want. Beoauso he eau't do
it.
Johnson. You ticer appointed me.
Leslie. No, thank God, my con?
science has not got so low as that
yot.
Leslie. Now I am willing to go with
this Republican party in office or out of
office, but there is no price, no earthly
motive, that oan induce inc to lend my?
self to any effort by that party to pur?
loin the money of the people. Perhaps
some of you are curious in this connex?
ion, to learn why 1 tendered my resig?
nation ; but there is not one of you
would like me to tell it herc-not out:
of you. But don't attempt to ?euro mc,
or I might make you feel bad.
Hoyne, of Marion (colored ) I deny
the statement of thc Senator from Barn
Well. As the agent of the Land Com
missioner, I have returned to him thc
deeds of every piece of land bought by
rue, and this is all thu General Assembly
requires mc to do. The Senator from
Harn well, nor any other man will ever
receivcone dollar while ho refuses to
give me certificates to place in thc
hands of thc people, with un endorse?
ment of thc money paid.
Leslie. Have any of your lauds becu
surveyed ?
(layne. One tract has bcc;i surveyed.
Leslie. How can you expect a title
without a survey ?
R. H. Cain now secured the floor,
and spoke directly to the question of
adjournment, so that the interesting
process of washing the dirty linen of the
party before a public audience, abruptly
terminated.
When the debate closed tho vote was
taken on the resolution, and it was deci?
ded in the negative It is by no means
probable, however, that the General
Assembly will adjourn before Saturday.
There are fifty-seven Bills on thc
calendar of the Senate alono, and some of
these will elicit considerable discussion.
It is intimated that one of the pur?
poses of an early adjourn meat is, tn
provent the passage of the appropria
tiou Bill, there being several "little ir?
regularities" in it not at all creditable.
What they consist of it is difficult to
ascertain. The deep scheme which is
on font to open the strong box of tho
Treasury, I cannot at this writing, re?
veal, but something is secretly going on,
which is likely to be the subject of
investigation by the next legislature,
should it prove to be a more honest
body than the present one.
During the discussion above reported,
Kiinpton, Patterson, Parker, Hurley
Bowen, and others, were present, and,
apparently, greatly interested in the
result. I think the "rings" are becom?
ing alarmed.
The beauty of their success; so far, is
thatoarpet baggers are ahead, while tho
oolored party arc io thc dark. Nor are
they likely to ascertain what tho pur?
poses are until the blow reacts on them
as a party. Theo, look out for division,
whioh curses loud and deep.
Tho Land Commission is to be made
uso of in tho next campaign aa a pow
erf'ul lever of patronage It can control
votes, it can oontrol publio meetings, it
oan control speakers, and the man who
wields its influence shrewdly may ac?
complish more good or more harm than
any other official tn tho State
The House of Representatives listened
to several truths to-day, from Whipper,
Burrel James, Chesnut and others, in
a discussion as to thc propriety of pay?
ing Robertson and D?Bnso for their
property destroyed to Sumter District by
an incendiary. The bill asked for ten
thousand dollars, but when it was re?
vealed by some of the members that the
Eremises were not worth three
uodred dollars, were Httlo moro
than cid and worn out shantees,
and that to compensate these parties for
their loss would bo to establish an i ni
qoitouo precedeut. a motioo to strike
out the eoaoting clause was promptly
agreed to.
The book whioh reoords the work of
the investigating Committee io the ease
of H?ge has just been issued by Donny,
the Publie Prioter. It makes ooly fleven
hundred and eighty-five pages of ques?
tions and answers, and has cost the State
not tar from ten thousand dollars.
Verily, we shall have substantial argu?
ments with whioh to go into the next
campaign, and not all the oolored voters
of South Carolina, will resist the glaring
proofs that between folly and eorruption,
reckless expenditure and wild legisla?
tion, ignorance aud iniquity, they have
been represented by the worst body of
mon ever assembled on the floor of a
Legislature.
Tim Hurley, when he hoard of the
disgrace of Whittemore, telegraphed to
Senator Sawyer, "Sympathize with the
poor devil, but congratulate him on the
fact that his constituents can't read."
Probably its tho only ray of sunlight
that has yet illuminated the durkness
which enshrouds the fallen Congress?
man, and on the strength of it he is here
to make atonement, cut his curds afresh,
and, if possible, secure re election.
What the party is likely to do under
his adroit manipulations, remains to be
seen. The disgraceful termination of his
careel as a present representative of
South Carolina, has thrown a shadow,
dark and discouraging, upon his friends,
because he was regarded us a represen?
tative carpet bagger ; because he had
brains and voice and whiskers, and face
enough to assert his leadership of the
Southern delegations in Congress. Being
a good type of the new regime, his
comrades secretly gricvo for their own
sakes that he should have been so caveless
as not to cover up his tra ks.
*Oo thc other hand, the colored party
now in precess of formation, secretly
kick up their heels and shout with
delight that "one more unfortunate" hes
come to grief. "Served him right," is
the unanimous verdict among them ; and
you may search in vain for an adherent
to the waning fortunes of the former
favorite There are none so poor to do
him reverence. Viewed in any light
the d?fection of Whittemore hus been a
severe blow to tho peripatetic portion of
the party, aud ouly strengthens the
determination of the colored voters to
rid themselves of ever; ian who is not
honest, decent, and worthy to represent
thc whole people. There is now a chance
for some ambitious young Carolinian to
make his Congressional mark, yet in
doing so, he must expect to find
competitors in Rnincy, or Maxwell, or
some other eolored man who will be
nominated. It is said to bc the deter?
mination of tho ?ace hereafter to press
for office only their own people.
The Civil Rights Hill, now that it
hus pusscd, does not seem to give much
sat inaction, even to its most ardent
supporters. Senator Arnim, of Edgefield,
made a frank talk to them the other
night, in which he remarked that tho
whole thing wus n farce, and wcut on to
explain why. He said that the Bill
read,"'"if any common cairicr, &c,"
rolused certain privilngcs on aecount of
race, condition or color, they should so
und so. But continued Arnim, you
muy refuse c man on account of his coat,
or his boots, or his character, and the
onus will bc on the applicant for privi?
lege to prove that it wus from color, and
not from these cannes. Race, color or
previous condition, may bc a real oauso
but unless it is so declared as an excuse
for non accommodation, there is not a
man in Christendom who could go before
a Court of law, und under thut olause,
enforce the penalty prescribed.
All of which was true, ns was subse?
quently certified by Mr Corbin, who,
in answer to a question of Johnson, a
colored tuan, from Sumter, whether ho
could not go to a public hotel table,
under the provisions ol'the Bill, answer?
ed, "no, they would send you to the
kitchen, or somewhere else and you
couldn't help yourself "-Columboa Cor?
respondence of Chrrlselon Courier.
THO OOVEIINOII DKNOIINCED ON
THE FLOOR OF THC SENATE.
Thc Columbia correspondent of thc
Charleston Daily News, uuder dato Feb.
28, has tho following :
Tho startling event of to-day was
Leslie's speech io the Senate, denounc?
ing tho Governor. Tho general appro?
priation biil was uuder consideration.
When tho cluuse providing that for
continuing thc construction ol'the State
Penitentiary eighty thousand dollars bc
appropriate J, to be paid ou the order of
the Governor" was reached, Leslie
moved to strike out the word "Govern?
or" and insert "Financial Board of tho
State." This raised a howl of indigna?
tion among tho Radical sonators, one or
two of whom asserted that tho motion
was made to throw a slur upon thc
Governor. Leslie replied to these as?
sertions by saying, substantially, that
there wus something rotten about tho
penitentiary, anyway Ho believed the
Governor was interested in it some woy.
There was, a short time ago, a tract of
lund belonging to the State, and situated
near tho penitentiary, which the Gov?
ernor leased to Mr. Pope for a small
sum, upon condition that ho should put
it io cultivated order. Upon this tract
was six thousand dollars worth of wood,
whioh was cut down by tho penitentiary
convicts and sold to tho State, to which
it already belonged. Now, said Leslie,
you tell me that tho Governor didn't
know about this? Perhaps he didn't.
Even Stoibrand doesn't know about it,
and if Mr. Pope wore discreetly
questioned, he would know nothing]
neither. Weil, there was a handsome j
robt mado out of that little operation
y somebody, and perhaps tho Governor !
and Stolbraod knew nothing about it;
if so, tho Governor koowo 1 ss than
usual about the business of the State.
Thoro waa nothing tn tho Sute that tho
(Jovernor did not kuOW aoineth ?og about i
Dor any busiueas io which be did DOt I
have a finger, from a railroad to a bank
or a peanut stand. Now this Pope
eootraot business should be audited by
somebody beside the Governor. There
is enough evidence to indiot Stolbraod
as prinoipal, and the governor as acces?
sory, in this matter, by which the State
is wronged. I am prepared to defend
the Governor when he acts fairly and
honorably, and to deuounoe him
when he aots otherwise. Pity
alone prevents me from not now
mentioning more of the Governor's
aotions. Some here have alluded to
the Governor's fioanoial polioy. What
ev?deuce is there that he has any
-his reports on railroad matters ? ile
has no financial or other polioy. He
does not know on what side or where
he stands. Ho is without polioy. He
never told a mao one thing to day that
he didu't eontradiot to morrow. The
time is coming when he will have to
give a record of his doings os the State
Executive.
Previous to this, one or two attempts
had been made to gag Leslie, aod there
seemed to be a prospeot that such a
move would be successful, whereupon
Leslie turned towards those who seemed
boot upon making him stop, and said :
"Do you recollect wheo the meoagerie
was here. Well, the keeper told the
boys not to crowd tho monkey. Well, I
say to you, do oot crowd the monkey,
tor if you do, he will break bis cage and
let out not only himself, but many
things which you would not like to have
escape."
Herc Nash asked Leslie, who consti?
tuted the finan ?al board? To whioh
Leslie replied : If you knew your duty
as a senator, or know the laws which
you help to make, whioh I do not be?
1 ic vc you do, you would know who are
upon the board.
Wimbush said: "Governor Scott
will be tho next Governor, so you (Les?
lie) need not try to get your 'third
party' mao in."
Leslie. If that be so, God help the
pooi people of the State.
After this Leslie, amid frequent in?
terruptions, continued his remarks', the
gist of whioh is above given.
THE WAY XMBY PBOSPJBR.
The Columbia correspondent of the
Augusta Constitutionalist writes :
"You have no idea what is going on
here, bow the State is pillaged and
openly robbed by these carpetbaggers
sud negroes. To give you an idea, I
was told that Mr. Speaker Moscs^hc
son of the Chief Justice, a degeuerate
son of a degeuerate siro, received a
thousand dollars for a single ruling oo
a railroad bill, and that his weekly
deposit in the bauk is fifteen hundred
dollars. He eau afford to keep fat
horses and make himself agreeablo to
fust, women. Governor Scott was very
indignant with the Charleston Ne ic s for
some strictures made by that paper oo
his earnings out of the State bonds,
bank notes, Blue Ridge Railroad, &c.
'Why, it is a lie,' suid he, 'I have made
only one hundred and thirty thousand
dollars since I have been in office, and
in legitimate transactions.' A pretty
good only. Senator Leslio, land com?
missioner, keeps open house and buys a
good many acres. Ho is said to bo
doing so well, tln>* some of the senators
and representatives wish to stop his
supplies and have an investigation j but
the senator seems to defy them. The
stealing is so general, that he feels the
door for investigation will not bc open?
ed."
Don Piatt says Sumner never offers
his scat to a woman, unless she is color?
ed, and then he does so not through po?
liteness, but principle.
