The fact that a committee of gentle
men, representing the aristooraoy of old
families and State Bights, is now in
Washington supplicating for redress by
the interference of the general govorn
mcnt, tolls tho whole sad story of op
pression and humiliation It is not a
spectue'e that should gratify anybody.
W-e believe every count in their indict
ment of the colored majority in South
Carolina can be sostainod. No Ameri
can Common wealth ever suffered more
from tho domination of dopravicy and
ignorance. The outlooks seotns hope
loss. How a State thus afflicted may
be restored to a healthy condition is a
question demanding the serious coa
sidcration of etat es moo. Wo are not
surprised to find the suilorers proposing
quack rcmcdios for tho disease ; but
with all sympathy and concern for the
patieut it is the duty of the wiso physi
cian to deny the request. The proposi
tion of the South Carolina memorialists
as expressed by individual mombers is
that the reconstruction aots bo so amend
ed as to wrest the Stato from the hands
of llhc colored majority now in power,
and place it under tho eootrol of the
taxpayer* and the educated class. It is
always dosirnble that intelligence and
respectability shall rulo; hut it is not
right, that even this good end should
be accomplished by overriding the
popular will by congressional intorfor
once. No suoh dangerous precudent
should be sot, even for a good purpose ;
aud if such a precedent already exists,
it should not be followed. If this plan
is adopted iu South Carolina, it would
seem to justify not a few of tho politi
cal crimes which have made the Repub
lican party, as it exists in some other
Southern States, odious in tho eyes of
the , world. It will not do. Special
legislation is not the proper romedy for
political wrongs. If tho distressed
people of South Carolina ask 'What,
I then, shall we do V wo answer, in the
language of Gov. Kemper, that 'thore
can be no security for liberty but ia an
immovable adherence to fundamental
principles' Precedents of tho kiud
which ascribe unlimited power to a
legislative body and assume that it miy
subvert the dearest principles of liberty

which, being taught, return to plague

The story of th9 prostrate State bus
becu told too ofteu an 1 too fully in these
columns to uoed another retelling. It
is a pitiful story, a shameful story. It

however, is too voluminous, e<>h*rcnt
and cumulative to admit of ?1 tubt. To
all the other proofs', a fresh and convinc
ing one is now added in the spectacle of
tho white citizens of the Stato, the ex
slaveholders and ex-rebels, begging at
the bauds of a Republican President
and a Republican Congress the boon
of a Federal intervention These man,
not so very long since, were the iereas
sticklers for ictate rights to be found in
the country, as their fathers and grand -
fathers had been before them. They
would have gons to the death soonor
than tolerate any intermeddling on the
part of the general government in the
internal affairs of South Carolina. Now
they invite nni even implore it. Tho
fact is more eloquent than anything in
their memorial. * * * The appeal
to the Federal oothority having proved
a failure, the ejection recurs, What to
do? Two couues aro open to these
South Carolina tax.payers. We assume
that nu mined rising agaiust the existing
State (i over innen; is out of the question.
The first of thesj courses is, to organize
a passive, peaceable rebellion ; in other
words, to refuse to pay thair taxes, after
the Louisiana precedent. Some of tho
delegates are quoted as baring told the
IIoubc committee that this plan wotld
be tried, unless relief W?l speedly forth
coming. Tho Ufas is;, of oourse, o
coerce Congross into doing what it wi 1
not do voluutarily The a loptiou <f
this plaj would, of necessity, oau*
great confusion aud excitement in th
State ; it might easily lead to bloodshed
even if it did not, it might not prove s.
feasible- and officicimi as those wht
Tavor ?t profess to believo. A muck
better and safer plan, as it sooms to us
will be to steadily and hopefully per
severe in the path upon which they havo
already entered; undisciuragcd by the
disappointment and meagre results of |
the post, to redouble their efforts to
secure the confidence of the colored
voters, detaoh them from the carpet
baggers and the soalawags, aud educate
them in the duties of citizenship. Con
ciliation, education?in those two words
lies tho hope of South Carolina . Th s
ox slaveholders have already made a
good beginning in divesting thom?olves
of much of their old partisanship and
prejudice of race* Their boit and most
hopoful plan is to go straight ahead in
this line. Tho oireutmtancos and con
dition.! aro more favorable than ever
before. Lot the taxpayors bo of good
courage. Thoy havo reaped tho harvest
from a bad sowing. Let them now sow
kindness instead of conto:npt, sympathy
in?tead of arrogance, justice instead of
oppression. This seed, too, always comes
up. Thej shall reap in due sea-ion, if
they faint not.
