' whelming majority . of Radical? h?vs
boen returnee-, to (Ito L?gislature", Our
District officers are generally Radical.
- The whole State is under Radical rule.
AYL at next? The negro is impracticable
for good. Thc decent whit o men of the.
State cannot stoop low enough to rcaob
the negro and gain his support. This
dirty work belongs appropriately to
.dirty white men. The negro bas been
so much courted and fluttered that ho
has become more presumptuous than
ever. Ile struts and swaggers ut an
amazing ruto. It will soon bo too hard
even fur dirty white Radicals to restrain
his ridiculous ambition, He has come
to thc conclusion, from thc great noise
that has'becq made about him, that ho
ts earth's moot favored inhabitant. Ile
is preparing himself for a most griovous
fall from the heights to which he has
dimed his way under the lead of vile
. adventurers from abroad, andmore vilc
wretches nurtured upon our soil.
- I am pleased, for some reasons, that
an effort ha's been made to open the
eyes of tho negro to tho truo and dread?
ful conditiou of things existing in this
State under tho misrule of dishonest
and ignorant men. I am pleased that
they were invited to range themselves
by thc side of honest white men, and to
unite themselves with them, in one
grund effort to throw off tho incubus
which is threatening ruin to thc bodv
politic. 1 am even pleased that they
were invited to hold office in common
with honest white men, that abettor or?
der of affairs might bc effected. Thc
effort has failed-signally failed. Thc
itegro, almost universally, has refused
to bc impressed by any overtures point
lng to au honest administration of OUI
State affairs. Ile has turned his bael
upon his best, his only friends, lie lis?
tens to tho honeyed words ol designing
while men and aspiring mulattoes. Ht
has chosen his own destiny, and it h
ruin to himself. His existence depend.
upon tho prosperity of tho State; bul
this prosperity has been crushed to thc
earth. Thc hottest white inhabitants o
thc State will come universally to tlx
conclusion that thc negro, as a race
will never muke a good citizcu. Tht
people of tho United States will uoi
long suffer tho fairest poldon of th<
country to be impoverished and ruined
by iguorauce, vice and villany. It wil
bo au denial disgrace to tho whoh
couulry. The disgrace will attach mon
to those who havo the power to corree
tho evil, than to those who groan uude
the evil, without thc power tu throw i
off. Thc people of thu United State
are becoming restive under tho eondi
tion of things existing in the South
The day of retribution is coming, whet
an indiguuut and outraged people wil
risc up in their strength and majesty
and wipe off this stain which ail h eros ti
the whole government. Passion wil
not always obscure reason. RcvOllgi
has had its day. Thc people of tin

THAT BISCUIT* *AND ?HU IPECAC
Mu. Wurroit ?-It seoms that the
ipecao biscuit-<lI)euouinutional Dog?
gery"-which appeared somo timo ago
in the Neighbor, was swullowcd by ouo
who laid special claim to it. Thc result
wis that it made things within rather
boyle. Now, whether it wus intended
for that particular O?? or uoi, it is ev?
ident that it drove thc disease to
tho surface. Judging from the
amount and oolor of truck thrown
up and driven out, it is likely that tho
nlUictcd is for once pretty well cleaned
out. Thc bisouit is, however, ns good
ns ever. It is hoped ho will pass it
round. Others aro suffering in tho want
of it. In fact, thc ono who swallowed
lt waa not thought of when thc biscuit
was made and thrown out. But thc dex?
terity and ubiquity of some animale is so
great, that they got more than their
share. They aro sometimes supposed
not to bc about till the piece of bread
strikes tho ground, and before old
Trow.scr can cleverly get up to lay his
honest mouth on it, this cunning fellow
has it down his throat, and is looking
just like he had never eaten anything
in his life.

A traveler who was afflicted with
chills, lodged one night with a family
where tho kind and scientific old lady
undertook io euro thc chills by giving

lowed said bullet, but continued to shake
on. Tho old lady remarked lhere must
bc something thc matter with him "in.

thc family for years, nnd had .never
(ailed to cure when it was swallowed
right;-that it was a family bullet, that
they could not part with it, aud that he
must not take it away. Now, if this

The elootiou struggle in South Caro?
lina is over, and as the din aod eonfu**
?ion inoident thereto subsides, we aro
permitted a dearer view'of the prospect
The issue at the ballot box, conduct?
ed in and by the . interest of tho party
in power, presents n scene of corruptiou
-bribery, fraud, intimidation und vio?
lence-to whioh the history of our
civilization presents no parallel.
The party in power frame an elcotion
law, tho undisguised operations of which
not only put the wholo machinery of tho
ballot into the hands of its own partizaus,
but actually allows and provides for ex.
traordinary privileges in time and op?
portunity for tampering with the votes,
and changing the high and solemn
utterances of the people, as thoreby
expressed. And, from ono sido of tho
State to the other, comos tho evidence,
with thu voice and power of invincible
truth, that the provisions of the law
have been responded lo, and that the
infamous manipulations, apprehended,
have been employed aud the grossest
frauds, in other respects, perpetrated.
Ia sumo instances, in a single county, a
thousand more colored votes have been
counted than the latest registration
shows thero were colored voters in said
county. Aud this has been tho caso, to
a grcator or less extent, throughout the
lu other instances, (as in Chester?
field) where the Reform Party was in
thorough organization and efficient ser?
vice, and where an accurate list of
votes on each side was kept and obtained
by committees at the polls, the count
has changed tho number of votes actu?
ally polled, and turned a definitely as?
certained Reform majority into a large
majority against us.
From (his aspect of the situation v?e
turn with sensibilities shocked ; and
the boasted idea ot the arbitrament of
thc ballot box, as eliminated by Amer?
ican civilization, fallen to the dust, aud
covered with shamo and rottenness.
With the eusanplo before us, it is
no longer u cure fur thc ills and a solu?
tion of the difficulties of thc body poli?
tic. It becomes rather a promoter of
disquiet und dissatisfaction to the pub?
lic mind, aud tends to confusion and
anarchy. Fur, when u people, conscious
of their high aims und integrity, and of
their honest and determined purpose to
maintain their standard of social purity
and good government, no longer lind iii
the ballot box a medium through which
those gland obj cots may bc subserved,
or even thc will of thc people expressed,
desperation not unfrequently ensues,
and bloody revolutions follow. And,
to this, wc apprehend, we aro rapidly
tending, not only in South Carolina
but throughout the country. This is
our four, whilst our hope is that God
in His Almighty Power und Mercy, may
avert such an issue, and give to us in
tcrnul concord aud pcaco rather than
internecine strife and blood.
With reference to the colored man
we must declaro that tho hope of thc
honest white citizens of the State hat
been disappointed j and we do not be?
lieve that another such effort will evci
be mado in South Carolina. Aud whilst
wc distinctly assert that we do not go
back on the position of tho Press Con
Terence, on thu platform or tho Reform
Party, and express our high apprcoia
tion of the honest colorod men through?
out thc State who stopped forth to re?
ceive our exttuded hand, and withstood
to thc end, flic terrible ordeal of threat
aud intimidation to which they were
subj-'Otcd, casting their ballots with us
for an houcst gorernmont ; wo feel that
tho timo has como for thc white people
of the Stale to take couosol together foi
their protection, and for tho mainte
nance ol' those God-given rights and in
stinctH which they never oun and novel
will ourronder. They can and will tak<
ouro of themselves, maintaining at the

social rank, whioh belongs tu their raeo,
and which is tho oongonial clement o
