The most infainus fraud ever per
petrated on a people was enacted in
this County on Wednesday. The ini.
quitous election act of the Rndical
party, conceived for fraud, was carried
out to the letter. The Kershaw and
Ransior agreement was refused by the
Commissioners and Managers. It will
require the official count to give the
result. At least 800 fraudulent nc
gro votes were cast at the four pro
ciucts in this village. One hundred
fraudulent radical nero votes were
polled at Clinton. More than 1,000
fraudalent votes woro polled by the
On Tuesday night the negroes from
all parts of the County massed in this
placo. The radical Managers paid
little regard to challenges. At least
200 boys under a go, froin sixteen and
upwards, were all allowed to vote.
Many cnt their votes at all of the
four precincts in the village, and
afterwards voted at the County pre
cinots. Many voted in the county
and afterwards at all of the village
precincts. The white vote is solidly
for the Union Roform ticket. The
negro radical vote will aggregate in
excess of their numerical utrength,
while many voted for Reform, and
hundreds were not at the polls. It is
estimated that about 2,400 or 2,5oO
votes were polled lt this place ; at
Ulinton 1,000. At cross 11111, llamil.
ton's, Lyons and Saufflitown, probably
1,000 to 1,500 ballots were cat, large.

vote will be between 4,500 5,000.
Deducting the fraudulent votes, the

About 12 m., during the election at
the precincts were Powell noted as a
manager, upon some yelling in the
sbroets, Powell bolted, and was seen
no more during the day. The remain

was not opened again as required by
During the day a large body of
negroes repaired to Crews' house,
whero the militia arms are stationed,
and took up arms. This was done
nder Crews' orders, it is said. Un
der the circumstances the whites ex
hibited extraordinary forbearance.
We have to say that our people
have acted nobly and have done their

FfnAUn Is LANcasTvan.-The elec
tion oommnissioners comnmenced count
ing the votes in private, on Tuesday
mornig. None but their owns partyb
were ad mitted to thme room. Uip t'o
the tinie we go to press, we learn, tha~t
they claim a majority of 58 and the
Lancaster box still to iouit, which
will somewhat incromso it. It is
known that fraud has been committed
nither by the commissioners or mania
agers of election. Blut two of the
boxes correspond with the Reform
lists, the others have been tampered
with by the managers or the commis
sioners. The libts kept by the Re
form party are correct, and' it can be
established by affidavit of a mjority
of the voters of Lancaster county that
they voted the Reform ticket. This
will, doubtless, be done, the eleetion
contested, and the unprincipled knaves
who have tampered with our liberties
may yet find an uincomfortable bocrth

EFFECT OF CooL.NEss IN AcTroe..
In speaking of the necessity of coolness
during action, Colonel Wolaeley give.
an instanee of a staff officer who pro
dmtoed a most excellent effect ont a
whole column of men under fire by
carrying an order quietly through a
:hot bomnbard mdment with a cigar be
tween his lips. A simnilar story ii
.told of a German officer in one of the
battles before Mets. His men were
sufforing horribly, and he knew not
how to steady thorn till he saw ooe
private soldier smoking. The Colo
tiel was struck by the effect produced
on his own mind, and was wise enough
to walk up to the man and ask If he
would givie him a light for his cigar.

Wednesday Morning, Nov. 2, 1870,
Otur Political Trouble.
The Poet Gray tells us,
"All are men,
(Jondeemned aliko to groan,
'Tho tunder, for another's pain,
The unfoeling, for lain own."
The lot of sufforing that is thus true
of individuals, ii also true of commu
nitios. Where is the community
which is not this moment troubled by
some chronic evil which baffiles the
wisdom of man to euro ? The pro.
lom of the races, under tho condition
of their political equality, is the trou .
ble of the South. It is a ddfliilt and
harrassing problem. Yet with the
property in the hands of the whites,
with the blacks in a minority in most
of the States, and soon to be in a mi
nority in all of them, it is a problem
far easier to ,solve, with soic dtogree
of satiisfaction at the result, than the
conflict of labor against capital, of
property and education against indi
gence, ignorance and vice, asit exists,
at this very moment, in England.
We are ruled by the infeiior material
exalted to office by the votes of a
casto in South Carolina. But for
centuries, the middle classes and the
laboring masses have been compolled
in Europe to bear the burdens impos
ed by a ;,%vcrnment no wiser, and cor
tainly not a whit more of their own
choioe. It is a sound philosophy,
therefore, which will patiently endure
the troubles whioh ro efforts that we
can make can remedy. The Lp' ere of
politics has ever been the arena of
coufliet, of ambitious bickering, of
eriminnation and recrimination, of the
reverse of peace and repose. Those
who cannot moderate their passions,
should avoid it, unless they prefer a
voluntary unhappiness. But to such
as can command themselves, the re
floctions, nay, the very disappoint
tuents, that having to do with politi
cal affairs involves, prove the means
of lmher steady progress in wisdom and
la goodnoss, and, though it is suppE
ed that piety and politics are oppos.
ad, we do not hesitate to add, In true
religion and virtue.
Our Desnt y secure and above
tlaat of Negr'oes.
in South Carolina, the negroes, just
as Judge Orr says, arc fast tied and
irrevocably wedded to thec Republican
party, so that what good can comue to
the whItos tiaes-ough 1/eir vot ing mnust,
come by the whites joining that party.
That a fewv mean whites may get a
portion of the spoils of office, Judge
Orr advises, therefore, that the whites
of this State accept and endorse the
Radical party and its principles, to-.
male suffrage having already loomed
up as the necessary and logical resmalt
of them. We cannot endorse the
counsel. H-aving given the subject
our most earnest reflection, and not
being of that cowardly type of chuar
acter that would fear to face errone
ous public opinion, we most emphati
cally reject Judge Orr's counsel, and
for good reasons.
I. To join the Radicals is for thme
white people of South Carolina to so-.
cede again, this time, from the whites
of the other Southern States-a seces
sion In which their scorn and con,
tempt would be justly heaped without
stint and reservation upon us as dia,
honored deserters of a commern cause.
While they, with their still growing
white majorittes tear down the in
iquitles of a corrup~t and hypocritieal
party, we should at least contiue to
protest agaient them, until tim'e br~ng

upon us, and by a firm and steady re

2. Our destiny, in this State, will
rise superior to politieAl oppre-4ion.
The means of developing it aro the
brain-power and the mmo ey pow r- of
a heaven-gifted race. L t us uus our
brain-power and money-power iii nak
ing use of the black labor, aid in in
troducing white labor. A judiciiusI
discrimination, always so n:ado, hov
evor, as not' t., lose money by it,.
nothing that is rash or pa.-ionate, but
a discrimination steady, cool, deter
mined and profitable, in favor of our
own race, is much to be emmeni'td,.d.
The negroes prefer heavy tiaxte. We
do trust that the whito people do not
intend to pay them except as involun
tary agents for the negoes. If the
whites are such fools as not to shift
the burden very quickly and effec
tively upon the proper shoulders by
inereased rents of land, increased
charges for everything on the face of
the earth, and lower wage.-, then theiy
deserve to suffer. There iq no mine
ing this. matter. It is a war. "My
sentence is for open war." We must
ignore these people, except Fo 'far as
to make use of them as hewers of
wood and drawers of water,--ignore
them--they are not our equials and
never can be--and develop our desti
ny above them.
The position taken by Niajor T. W.
Woodward, in I is address before the
Agricultural Suciety this summer,
that the practice of renting land to
laborers and of planting on shares
with them, is a ruinous prnetico, and
should be abandoueil, is undoubtedly
oorrect. It is a position sanctioned
by every authority that has ever writ.
ton upon the subject in Eirope, where
the system, with the necessary disal
vatntaages it involves, has been testad
for generations. \Ve do not think
that this good advice is likely, how
ever, to be followed for our genei
tion at least. Indeed it seems to us
that good advice is almobt always dis
regarded, and bad counsels perversely
followed in preference. Our reasons
for regarding lajor -Woodward's ad
vice as unsuited to the times are
these : It ought to be followed, but
it will not be ; irat, because the
South is now cursed, and necessarily
cursed, we believe, with speculative
planting. Men who have none of the
spirit of the triue planter, without
capital or knowledge of the buiness,
are planting ast a mere make-shift iin
the struggle for existence, and in the
strain to do much mere, accomplish
much less, than they Qught to.. They
plant on Fa'.ctor's advances, and, to
lessen the risk, share the crop, which
really increases it, but they think
net, and you can never-convinoo the
muddy head of an Ignorout bungler that
his failure to make money, is due to
his own mismanagemnt of this and
other parts of his business. To le-sen
the rent of land,these people subrett
to laborers--another more mako-ehift
implying that want Qf confidenee in
ones own resources at the start0, which
t tel failure, before the battle be
gins. Having no money, too, but
coveting a great deal of it., they shai e
the crop, to save the use of capital in
the shape of wages, and thus are
much more exte naively engaged in the
important business 'of industriously
anid perpetually fallingsphort of their
foelish qaloulations,.. Again neighbor
Jones, who does not know more oif
planting than his own hog, for he
doesn't plough as deep or one-half so
systemtiially, tries the wages-spstem
and fails at it with ta heavy de bt as the
result. 'We could have predicted
failure' of Jones tbpon ainy Pysteml
whatever. Bunt his nel-Ahip, Smt,,
who lives next door, believes it was
the wtages-system that ruined him,
and not his ignorance, not his slolit,
