Are they going to be more intelligent
and more liberal-minded than the
editors of the State press, the
loaders of publie opinion ? We be
lieve not. And since we acknowledge
the triumph of republican principles
as a matter of accomplished fact, it
becomes the more intelligent party to
embody that noknowledgement in a
name and "language that can be un
dorstood by the people." Otherwise,
we demand of the negroo more intelli
genceo and liberality than we exhibit
Moreover, this is a matter of State
policy altogether. The name "Demo
orat" is associated much more strong
ly, in the mind of a negroe, with op
position to his voting, titan with any
thing else. It had better be dropped,
and not only dropped, but the name
"Republican," which indioates an ad.
mison and advocacy of his right to
vote, substituted for it. Liberal Ro
publican, or Conservative Repub
lican, or Anti-Radioal Republican,
therefore, would be the best party
namo of the now party.
Our assortion that we had "return
ed~to work more congenial to our na
turethan wrangling," has perhaps been
misunderstood. We simply meant to
say that we intend to "fall back" and
take our place in the anti-radical
line, while quietly and firmly holding
our conviction that the whiole line
ashould aduance to the name we have
fallen back from simply to prevent
bitterness, wrangling and division.
As to the policy we advocated, it has
been nccepted. And we hold that

Can history Teach Nothing ? t
John C. Calhoun long ago proved
that there was but one theory of c
State Rights worth anything practi- I
cally, and that is, the theory of State r
Sovereignty that carries with it the t
right to secede. The pitiful history 0
of the Supreme Court for the last t
four years should prove to South f
Carolina Democrats, that Webster's t
theory, on the contrary, is practically i
worthless, and that the revolution In
the character of our government was t
thoroughly completed by the election t
of G rant. Yet South Carolina Demo

keynote has been struck, and at the
next election, thme virtue and intelli

the past, will be seen to throw off its
apaithy, and bring its offerings to thme
service of the State.
The Move in Union Ull-Timed,
It will be seen that the people of
Union recommend a threat of repudi
ating the bonds to be issued by the
present State Government to be made
by the tax-payers in their various
county meetings. Thfs move was re
commended by ourselves last year,
but before the will of the nation had
unchangeably settled the mixed ehar- y
actor of our State Government, and
before unqualified negroc suif'rage had
become a fired fact to be accepted ~
and wisely dealt with. As a war
measure, it was good ; as a peace. s
measure, it will not answer.
This reconmmndation, comies, too,
with ill-grace from Union, because it is
wvell known that it is not jobbing to t
which Union so much object., as that (
the Blue Ridge Railroad should jhavoe
been the job, rather than the Spar

JIsERAL DEMoC1AUY ANO CONSER
VATIVE REPUBI.CANiSM --The discus.
sion whicb has grown up between the
journals of the State as to the "third
party" movement seems to involve
rather a question of nomenclature
of party designation-than of princi
pie or policy. However much we
may deprecate the results of recon
struction, yet, for the present at least
they are "accomplished fate," and it
would be fully to ignore them. Ne
gro suffrage we believe to be "the
direful spring of woes" unnumbered
-the instrument by which unprinei
pied men sustain their "rule and ruin
policy ;" yet we must accept the sit
uation, and fight our foes with their
own weapons, and vsrgtii-h them, as
we trust we will, on fields of their own
The question of suraffge we lelieve
to be a question belonging wh1l0 y to
the States, but our Legislature has
committed us to the fifteenth amnend
ment and no action here can change
the result. Hlowever much, then, we
may endorse the position of the Ohio
Doinocracy on this question of negro
suffrage, it is no longer a practical
issin. Did we not stcid upon the
same ground, we might fight with the
same weapons ; but if we of the
South are to coi.quer radicalism, we
must do it with the aid of the negro
himself. leice, whatever name we
may adopt, whether "Liberal Demo
cracy" or "Conservative Republican
.ism," we must still stand upon the
.Iassachusetts platform, accept the
facts of reconstruction, and ignore all
else but practical issues. To redeem
our State from the oppression of radi.
cal muisrule is our first duty, and
"anti-radialism" situld be the great
rallying cry in the elections of 1870.

The Tribun of Saturday makes the
following allu:sion to the opinion of
Mr. Hoar :
"The decision of the test-oath ques
tion by Attorney-General Hear will,we
trust, put an end to efforts that at one
time threatened to be dangerous. Ior

camendmntot he holds lat the oath is

therefore organisL-not under such a
pi idu's purge as some hot-heads have
been seeking-but as elected. When
the return of Virginia to her position
as a State in the Union becomes com.
plete by the congressional approval of
such ratification, the Legislature
again, without any test-oath require
ment, can proceed to business. The
decision is not without a sido that
may seem to excuse if not to sano
tion ceneral Canby's course, but it
effectually stops his proposed action."
The Now Oleans TIines says that
the whole North is beginning to
look to an extreme South-westeru
State for its supply of frealh meat, and
adds: "We have long been furnishing
that people with thme chief material
for their clothing, and now the ma
ligned and persecuted South is expect.
ed to supply thema with food. Still, we
are reproached with indolence, lack of
enterprise, poverty of resources, and
general thriftlessness, because we do
not,while prod ucing the food and cloth

arnd railromads to transport, and the
machinery to work up the the raw
products which we send. them."'

The New Party.
Things could hardly wear a more
loomy aspect than at present. The

lid active steps be taken to produce
ie necessary reform, n reform positive&
