Wednesday Morning, June 5, 1872, '
We copy the following able article '
from.the New York Sun, showing up I
the Aiministrution, or Acioial Re- t
publican, party in its true ovlor.. Its t
reasoning is logical. and oonvincing to t
ovb'ty mind tiot blinfded by prejudice. 0
The statements mado can be relid
upon., for the Sun is regarded as one d
of the purest representatives of Lib. A
eralism in our whole country :
"Th Administration party of this E
country, as now managed, is emphuti- I
cally a party of falso pretences. It
professes to be Ropublican, but is so
neither in a party senso nor in the i
broader mcauing of the term. It e
m11kc the only test of iNelity to the b
party a blind and unreasoning fealty to 1
an individual who was never a Repub- P
lican until lie was taken up by the
organization as a windidate for office ;
its policy tends directly to the sub
version of Republican principles and
the adoption in their stead of a ser- a
vile obedience to the rule of one man,
who is aliko regardloss of the obliga
tions of the Constitution aud the
laws, when they stand in the way of a
his ambitious designs or conflict with
his prtjudices. h
"But of all the falsE pretences un- t
under whiob the people are urged to ,
vote the existing Administration a
new lease of power, none is more glar.
ingly absurd than the one so persist- b
ontly urged, that (Irant is making re
marhable progress in paying off the
pubdlie d..bt. In the first place, the
P'resident hans nothing to do with the
finanes a if the country, except to'op.
peso economical reforms. That mat
ter is in the bands of the Secretary of
the Treasury and Congress, who levy
taxes and dirpose of the proceeds
phile draut; thik horse, smokes, and
engages in scheunes for depleting the
Treasury for:tbe benefit of his cronies
and swarm of wor'thless relations.
TIis obsequious newspaper organs
speak as if io was paying off the dlebtL
out of his own pocket, when in fact he hi
does not even pay ani income tax.
Still, it is urged that to Grant shoulda
be n'seribed all the credit arising from
the Rinancial policy of the Govern-a
"Very well. Give Grant all the
cred it, itf hiis supporters insist upon it,
but before the pooplo make up theirg
minds to reelect him on the gt-oumnd dfa
his prudent management of the na
tion'a tuoney, It would be well to ex..
amine into the matter a little, and
e.o what that management really

In our pretent political troubles,
nd in that btate of uncertaility and ,
neasiness which now surrounds us,
he thing most to bo desired among I
ur people is harmony, and unity of h
ction. They must act together, and f
ri all public affaits consult, not in be- .
alf of individual interests, but for
lie whole mass of the people. The a
reat barrier to the pro.sperity of our ti
auntry since the war has consisted a
s much in differences and selfish
ickerings amongst our people, as in
olitical grievances. The want o(
armony has brought upon us manya
roes, and entailed much unlocked fn
lisery. It has very perceptibly op, qi
rated against our recuperation fromi a
be sad results of the late war, and ~
as been in fact the cause of many
xisfortunes that might have been 0
verted. Whilst divided among r.
emselves, our people can have no ren "
nable hope of ever regaining theira
rmer prosperily, or even attaining o
a condition of partial happiness.- c

cen'properly appreciated. Neither P

We lay before our peoplei to,day T
a earnest plea for harmony. We are ri

o selfish, and think too little of the
oneral welfare of the country. We
re constantly pulling against each IP
ther, and allowing ourselves to differ6
i matters of great import, when we
iould combine against the common
nemy, and work together for his over. p

i TeInt e,the qt fondf.
Th icialr ing in thio State are
'perfetly well aware that their op.
portunities for plundeting the people
" will come to an end in Ootpber, and
they are evidently anxious to make
w the nest ot the time that remains to
them. Our advioes from Columbia
at hint pretty plai.nly that a huge speou.
lation ofsome kind is afoot, and an
d official letter of Governor Scott, prin
ted in the Now York Evoning Post
a- of- Monday last, would seem to con.
firm the news that the Ring are once
id more seeking to ploy the little game
of fast and loose with the State credit
which they have found so pleasant and
s profitable in the past. The first
move in this game, we take It, is the
ly reply to an inquiry from a Now York
banking house. The Governor's
private secretary writes :
10 "[ am directed by his Excellenoy,
Governor Robert K. Scott, to ao
knowledge the receipt of yours of
15th instant, and to state in reply
s that the Legislature at its last session
failed to make any piovision for the
n payment of the interedt on the bonds
" due in Jely. The interest, therefore
cannot be paid until July, 1873.
y The Governor deeply regrets this state
a of affairs,-bat the fault is not his, it
resting with the Legislature altogeth.
- Now the Legislature, as everybody
knows, has sins enough of its own to
a answer for voithout being saddled in
r, this "way with the responsibility
>- for dlhe speculative trickery of the
Ring. Nobody knows better than
g Governor S ott that the Legisla
. ture did "make 'provision for the pay.
ment of the interest on the bonds."
Indeed, the whole drift of the State
I Legislation latt winter was to take
d care of the preseit and prospective
interest of the bond holder,, altogeth
h er regardless of the right and wishes
of the tax-payers. The validity of
the whole of the outstanding issues
n of bonds was confirmed by an Act
specially framed for the purpose, and
so far from neglecting to appropriate
a funds for the payment of the interest,
the General Assembly, instead of ma.
d king an appropriation, which would
a necessarily have to encounttr the
chancas of renewal at euch succeeding
session, made a standing provision
for the colleotien and payment of the
it interest, which remains in force
" tintil all the bohda nie redeemed.
it The fourih section of "An Act rela.
,e ting to the Bondq of the State of
South Carolina," (approved March
1 13, 1872,) requires that "an annual
If tax, in addition to all other taxes,
e t-hall be levied upon the property of
a the State sifficient to pay the interest
bn the bonds named or provided for
d by this act until the principal of said
bonds shall come due." This is ex.
* egplicit enough. It is an ample pro.
provisi on for the payment of all in.
terest on the dcbt. Now,the tax for
g paymontof interest., provided for in
the law we have quoted, must be
r levied by November 15 and collected
>r by Jaunary 15. What authority,
F then, has Governor Scott for saying
e that no interest can be paid until
July, 1873 ? The interest due in
January and July, 1872, was expected
n to be puid from th - proceeds of the
', license law and of the sales of delin
,, qun lands this month. If tile
emoney is not applied, the blame must
y be laid somewhere else than on the
d woolly heads of our legIslators. Long
before the let of July next ample
funds will have been wrung from the
a1 property-hplders of South Caro
I- ima to meet every just claim
-of her creditors. We have seen that
no0 legal requirement is lacking for
r the payment of ageh claims. If they
, be not paid, let it be distinctly under
o stood by the public creditors that
c they have nobody else to thank for
LL the shameful delay than this slippery
o Governor Scott and the corrupt Ring
-t of which he is the central figure.

An unfortunate shboting Affdi.
On Tu*lay t g Io put
young townstu M harl e Vo,
shot and wounded, fatally, a negro
man by the nate of Jake Lindsay,
better known, however, as Jake Moss,
who died on the next day. Mr. Chase
lives with his widowed grand mother,
Mrs. Samuel Brooks, conducting her
farminginterest and affairs generally.
Jake Lindsay was hired by them, and
was, under Mr. Chase, a sort of fore.
"ian of the crop. That the farming
operation were to be -absolutely or
dered and guided by Mr. Chase, was,
we are informed, a part of the con
tract or agreement.
On the morning of the difioulty, it
seems that Mr. Chase ordered the
hands into a certain field, but upon
going to look after things, found 'them
with Jake, in another. And this by
Jake's direction. Mr. C. command
ed them into another field. The
negro objected, refused, and exhibited
much wrath and obstinacy. We would
not really be, or appear, in the fain.
test degree prejudiced in th-s account
but from all we . havo been able to
learn, and from reliable sources, too,
the colored man behaved 'on this oo
easion with unbridled insoleoo and
blind and unreasoning obstinacy.
The upshot was, that Lindsay quitted
the field, hurried to the house, return.
ed with his loaded gun, and resumed
the altercation. And upon this, Mr.
Chase, much excited and exasperated,
As we go to press, an inquest is
being held on the body of Lindsay.

not been arrested. But he will, of
his own accord, we are assured, re..

somewhat subsided, and surrender
himself to the proper officers of the
