The Chiarlestotn News ecelr
Any man conscious that the United
States Government is now national
and~ consolidated, and not simply
federative, cannot but take a most ab
sorbing interest in the electioni of the
next House of Representative. TJhec
oennv.mSs for Congress and for State of
ices in this State will be simultane
ously conducted. Hence we think it
impossible to separate State and Fed
erul politics next fall. It will not be
strenigthi, but weakness, for the June
or ainy other anti-radical convention
to attempt it. A clear, plain, out
ipoken IVoderal policy, is demanded,
by the necessities of the case, of all
anti-radicals. Thme truth is, Federal
polities is the politics. To declare
no F"ederal policy, is to gain no
strongthi, for it is a clear ease that the
radioals and the administration will
act and( vote on thme principle, that
"he that is not with me, is against
mec." The effort of the State press
should then be, to feel and prepare for
a Federal policy for the State suited
to its people and to the times.
The News undertakes a very bold
m~.ortion, when it declare. that the
June Convention will esoe Federal
politics. But suppose that it will
xinform to the wishes of the NVetas on
lthis subject, and seem afraid of Fede
ral polities. What an Insipid and
wveak position that will be I How
Jifferent from the Walker party of
Virginia that declared sqluarely for
Grant I We tell the Newse, any suchb
non-committal is sure to be interpre
bed as anti-admnhltration, as well as
anti-radical, whereas at least a passive
support of Grant Is plain, common
sense, in South Carolina, at this time.
Lastly : If the anti-radical press of
South Carolina oan succeed in eon
oealing its sympathies In Flederal poli
tics next fall ; If It does not, on the
contrary, take sides so very plainly
that the veriest fool will be able to
undeistand on which side In Federal
polities the citizens' party now being
attempted, but not yet fornhed, iI
ranged ; then, human tstre will have
changed completely, and the Charles.

Our opinion, thbefeorereing px
that the attamnt to alaaninaae anat*~
politics from thiefall canvass, if It bo
Iffade, will fair ; and that it is ratLor
the duty of a pitriotio press to con
tribute towards the adoption of a
policy at once cohiliatory and practi.
cal, not only as to State, but as to
Federal affairs-a policy that willfdir
ly represent the State as it is, and which
will be preparatory to representing it
as it will be years hence.
"No party," says the Richmond
.Dipatd., 'ihas ever mado a deeper
impression, in t'welve months, upon
the politics of the conntry, than the
Conservative party of Viiginiia."
Ever since the Phonix and its pro
gressive democracy swallowed, upon
the 15th ult., "radicalism in its ex
troino form" (so press Confereneo
resolutions) it has been ailing, and
making the inmt awful faces at its
very quiet and I-caceable neighbor
the Winnsboro NEWs, for advocating
"radicalism in its milder phases."1
So great has bean the diiturbance at
the hottom of its heart, that its
thoughts have naturally recurred to
Jonah and the trouble which that
true prophet once caused to the
whale. Now, then, we advise our
contemporary to come to shore, and
vomit like the orthodox fih of old,
and thou, with a purified and more
progressive (backward) Democracy,
it can launch foith and be at sea once
Ill-advised Use of the Word
The word, "radical," has, in this
State, and, indeed, in the Union, a
distinctive meaning, which it is the
interest and wisdom of all anti-radi
cals to keep up. It is associated with
excess, and with partisan injustice of
various sorts. Yet two papers in
this Stato have preferred to call us,
who propose to act with the Conserva
tive republicans only until a now Na
tional Constitutional Party can be or
ganized, asi a.Conservative RADICAL ;
and we notice in our exchanges the
same disposition outside of South
Carolina to fasten the name of nRADICA.
upon such as ourclves. If these at
tempts succeed, the term will become
indifferent, that is: either good or
bad, according to the adjunct used
with it, and the anti-radicals will
have flung away the weapon that the
very word "rudioi'l" is now capable
of being in their bands. We will not,
therefore, ask, is this use of small shot
against men. who simply can't see the
situation as they see it, altogether
fair, but is it wise I We can only say
this for ourselves, that we are afraid
of no nick-name whatever, and that
finding a disposition to class us a
lhadical, withs calmi philosophy we
have concluded not to kick against
it, and accordingly, have commenced
to use the word radical in a good
sense, as observant readers must have
noticed last week, though altogether
against our own judgment as to the
right use of words. lint when popu
lar prejudice is appealed to against a
sincere thinker, a wise mann, if at the
same time a fearless one, will imme
diately assume the attitude of perfect
indifference ; and If being a sensitive
maon, he feels a little scorn at the
same time, common sense will soon
enable him to repress Is.
As Good as a Venaee Lawv"
One of our planters complains that
his neighbor's cattle prevent his being
able to raise eats, and wishes to know
if there is any chance of a law requir
lag cattle to be fenced in. We think
there is. WVhen every vestige of a
fence hanm rotted out and disappeared,
this County will petition for and ob
tidn such a law, and we will have it,
not when we need it, for we need it
now, but when we cannot possibly do
without it. Necessity, and net an
Intelligent policy, will bring it.
If however, planters would invaria
bly shoot's cow and butcher it, upon
its very first appearance In their field,

would lose less in the end. It would
prove an adequate protection to their

sustain thoem by moderate damages.

When Does Manuftcturing
Shallow' philosophers and unrefloot
ing talkers do much to prevent the
progress and development of the
South, by frequently saying, "Oh I
you nowspaper' mon advocate it, be.
e tue you hav6 nothing better to talk
about ; but the South has neither the
labor nor the skill for manufacturing,
and the sober common sense of our
people acts upon that fact. We don't
want manufactures here. We are an
agrioultural people." Now what do

ufacturing, unless they would discard
all agricultural machines, and go it
with their fingers. A gin is a ma
ohine, and ginning, manufacturing.
A flour mill is a mnufactory. They
mean, then, that we have neither the
labor nor the skillfor certain kinds of
manufacturing. That is a different
and very true proposition. And if
they will promise never to use the fal
lacy again, we will permit them to
attempt to deny that we have the la
bor (hundreds of dependent women
doing nothing) and the skill for spin
ning as well as ginning cotton, and for
weaving all coarse varieties of cloths.
It is simply a fact, that we can spin
cotton South, five cents cheaper on the
pound than anywhere else in the
world, and can weave all coarse oloths
from seven to ten cents cheaper. To
manufacture finer stuffs, swiss muslin,
for example, we are not, it is true, at

It sconis to us almost absurd that
there should be five protestant
churches in Winnsboro. If the pro.
testanti here would unite upon the
apostles' and the Nicene orced, and
build one large and handsome church,
and employ one preacher and assist
ant, how good and pleasant a thing it
would be I They all profess to ex
peot to unite in heaven, but somehow
prefer disunion and weakness on the
earth. Five congregations prefer to
half-starve five preachers, rather than
unite and give a comfortable support
to two. Yet they expect the ministry
to continue well-educated, eloquent,
learned and efficient I To all out
siders, and to many inside of the fold
too, this thing begins to appear ab

Now, of course, we cannot believe
that Christ ever promised or Intended
an external unity of his churcb. Its
external unity is simply a matter of
high expediency, and is to be viewed
especially with reference to the sup
port of the ministry. If Christ ever
promised and prayed for an external
unity, then clearly he was a false
prophet and imposter, for such a uni

noddles of these who insist upon

The New York correspondent of
the Philadelphia Ledger says that
"merchants continue to complain of
the backwardness of spring trade
not one particular branob, but all.
The western dealers are buying spar
ingly, while southern orders, as a gen
eral tWing, are said to be much under
tha liberal mark which the profitable
cotton crop seemed to warrant. Many
are inclined to attribute the existing
stagnation to the uncertainty which
attaches to the future as the result of
the various financial measures pend

cause, there can be no gainsaying the
effect, which is visible on every side."

How butift:l is Spring timo,
When the birds all chuse ther mates,
And bild ther nests where tha kan rest.,
In these rekonstrueted States.
Oh I aint it raly butiful,
When the buds begin to pop,
And fhe little hopper grasses
Thru the woads, begin ter hop.
When the blossums all kums out so fine.
Fur the gals and -boys ter smell,
Oh I who is thare upon, this earth
That kan ever start to tell,
Of the buties of the Spring time,
Which is the best time of them all,
Fur it betes the Summer all ter smash,
And the Winter it makes fall,
Of all the seasuus of the yere.
The Spring's the timte fur me,
Fur then I'm happy as thue birds,
Upun the Simmun tree
Let, uthers sing thmer prases,
Of the Summer's sultry dayse.
But fur me nna mine the Spring's too fine,
Ter think uv singing prase.
Of any uther sesun that kum within the
