of the State, The object Is not: to divide

tore at a ruinous sacrifice to (he preseu.
owners, without a shadow of encouragmont
to (ho laboring blacks of the State, who of'
all others should be preferred if any prefer.
enco is to be given.
If the Legislature is to take chargo of
this matter and offer "praoticablo Induce
ments for (he division and sale of the unoc,,
cupied lands," it necessarily atnounts to
either agrarianism or heavy taxation. The
first emphatnically repudiated by the Union
Republican party, and the latter must be
fle pOgramnme. Now, (he question ii,
what. bIpcilt lthe colored people are to do
rive from this, even to lay aside (le unniti
gated injistico to the present owners? The
State mnay be traversed fromt one end to the
other, and not one colored man inl fio hun.
dred will be found able to buy, for cash,
fifty nores of land at $2.00 per acre. And
the consequence must be that, outside spe.
culators and immunirants will be able to buy
(lie lands of our peoplo thus forced upon
tho market at onstifti the real value, and
leave the poor colored laborers in a far
worso condition than they are at present.
Iln faot, it will drive them fron the State.
The aninus, which seemed to govern the
Charleston delegates (especially the wihiltos)
was to ignore the true interest of the agri.
cultural districts and work for themselves
as individuals and city property owners.
They did not have the manhood to adopt a
plattiorn upon which liberal minded mon
could stand, for fear that they might lessen
their own claims for elevation to otlioce, as
is evident from tle resolution which would
bind all members of the party to support
the regular nomines without any reserva,
(ion whatever. Other planks in the plat
form are objectionable, but the two alluded
to, so clearly demonstrate the fact, that the
agricultural interosts of the Stato are to
suffer and that the party must. be obligated
to sustain tie nomiinces without reference
to ability, competeney or honor, that it must
suggest itself to every honest mind that
something should b done to avert th Ie dan
ger. At this time, there are no distinctly
defined party associations in South Caroli
na. It is true, tIhero is a men ningless party

Thoso geItIiomnCII who talk about the
CoflslIation of rebel properly. mil i

hopes which are likely to be disap
pointed. The frec'mon must raise
themselves ; they must vork now, and
not depend upon vagno promises of
future aid. As Mr. Speod says, there
is little more that can be done for lie
froodmon ; we have given thei aill
the rights and privileges we ourielves
possess, and the op portuiity iS for
thom to use. "Caltivate all the vir

Speed , "be hoinest, iiidustrions, so

and learn to keep it ; own your own
homes ; identify yourselves as good
citiZOns With the conunnities in
which you may live ; in all your deal

would be done by, atid to learn to re
