the "Goddess of Liberty "Justice," with
the scales. On the front, "Fourth Ward
Democratic Club," with a representation ol
at corpulent individual proclaiming to scala
wags and others to clear the track-around
which were ten stars representing (t
Southern States. The back of the tran
sparency represented two loan and gawky
figitres, cariet-bags in hand, departing
Northward on the election of Seymour and
Illair. The inonitor presented tIe emblems
of lite farmer and mechanic-Democlatic ;
Iadical implenint.-lutler's spoon ; the
"Soutth Carolina Treasury :" "Be sure of
your hook before fishing."
The local transparencies distributed
thr9tgh the procession were, many of them
uniquo in design and varied in style. One
presented a correct photograph of the "Now
State House," (Janney's flall) with a "bar.
room" and "cock-pit" on olihor side. "We
are coming, Father Abraham-$6."
A very truthful device was "Andrew
Johnson, the faithful sentinel on the watch
tower of Liberty," with portraits of Wash.
ington and Seymour, and a palmetto grace.
"Native and foreign citizens, colored an(d
white, are interested in thesuccess of the
Democratic party." --
"tDemocracy means peace, Radicalism
war." "RiUhkland Demourats, bestir your
selves." "We work for those who work for
us." "We are siro to win." "Seymour
and Blair forever," and many others.
The colored Democrats were out in strong
force, bearing banners and transparencies.
"The Young Democrats" were also on hand
-bearing at thcir head, "Young Aunerica
goes for Seymour and Blair."

Mr. James 0. Gibbs, of Columbia, was
next introduced, who entertained''thiYassem
bly with a most admirable and practicable
speech, interspersel with anecdotes, which
was hugely enjoyed, especially by our sable
brethren, as many of thet showed their
ivory from the beginning to the end of his
speech. Mr Gibbs, labored fai'tilly to
impress upon the colored man tie necessity
of deserting tie sinking ship, or they would
be overwhelmed and 0ngulphed in ruin.
le told .heim candidly, that the Southern
Do:nocrats were their best and in fact their
only friends. Stated to them the condition
of the black man North, tHIMat he had travel
led extensively and oftentimes over tie
principal cities and sections of the great
North, and that their color were tie most
degraded ald in tie most abject and imiser
able condition of any other class of people
within his knowledge. InI their great cities
you never saw a colored draymnan, carringe
driver, &c., and white mnechanics held up
their hands in holy horror at the idea of
working side by side with the negr-o, and if
the negr3 got employment, it wts of tie
most menial kind. le also told then of the
enormous burden of debt, saddled on the
country by the wild and rookless expenli.
ture of the Radical party, and most assured.
