The Situation,-Its Facts, Their Signi
ficance and their Demands.
South Carolina is, and is not, a
Stato. Her position is anomalous.
As a State, she his geograpical boun
daries. As a federal State, slo had
once lPederal bounilaries ; as a con
quored Stato, she is no boundaries
but the will of Congress. Such is the
Congress in passing the Military
Bills knew that its 1aws, while appa
rently left to tle voting choice of the
State, would be accepted ; becauso
having all the flgnres, it knew that
the newly enfranchisol would out
number the old enfranchised popula
tion, less the newly disfranchisod.
So it imtade a law that the people
h-mdl(l decide what shiall be their
Stato Constitution in 1867, not how
OvOr witholt'5o fixing it at first, that
tihat Constittt ion slould be nothing
more or less tlitii nit expression of the
will of Congress ratlier than of the
people. Such are the facts.
The dominant party in Congress,
which has grasped power, Io.tl5s te
koop it.. Honoo they ennct that we
s'tall hold a Convention to abolish the
old, and frame a new Constitution, on.
ly upon the condition that the foriot
intelligence, dignity, experience ant
ability, as wol as integrity of th<
Stato shall havo no voice itn that Con.
volition. This is what gives signifi,
itcnoo to the present degradation, and
degrading prospects of our State.
All this demands seoe course to be
pursuod by our peopl. If we all
agree and fall In together with the will
of Congress, there Lis but one monrse
before ts. If all we want is "man.
hood suffrago" and "Radioal notions,"
those can easily be obtained. But
this is not the only course. A part,
at least, ofus in this Stato aro now
like a sick imia in a terrible disonso
with a physricianl in whotim he hs no
confidonce. The remedy prescribed
lbe knows is mixed in fatal proper
tions, and yet lie knows ho htas It to
take. is ontly hope therefore is in
e:ithler diluting the ingredients or in
taking theo antidote at the samoe time
with it. Such is the condition of
many in the State relafive to the Con..
vonition soon to be held. It. is a dose wo
miust takco. 'It does not behoove us to
swallow it wilthoeut anefrbto avert its
direoeffeets. -Our only antidote is in..
telligenee anid experience. 'These we
must strive to -ptt liito that mixod

tion. The man who doces not manke
the effort to sond suitable men to the
Convention, men to represent as tuch
as possiblo the former intellect of the
State, is either putting the cup of poi.
noit up to his lips, or putting his lipt
down~ to te poison in the cup. Wce
hope) Fairfield will have an honest and
intelligent delegatIon to the Conven
tion, ivho'will not forget all that is
due thei~r ownt State in their eagerness
to do homage to the Rladioal party.
