n the power of the Blhltimnore Con.
entionm to dletermnine the result of the
text contcst for the P'residency, and
u effeet shape the character of the

hen, will it act the part of wisdom,
mnd endorse Glrcoley and Brown, or

'jis so as to make a strict party

lie reelect ion of' Grant. Thme indica

elegations to Baltimore pledged to
he endorsement of Gireeley and

ill be sufficient to defeat an out-and

Tito Late State Couaaelation.
The.Convention on the part of the
people of this State, lIttely held in Co.
lumbia, proved one general fact by its
aqtion, which is worthy of note, and
it is this, that the citisens of South
Carolina, opposed to military despot
ism nd Radicalism, are willing -tc
sacrifice the non:o of party in out
present political complications to sub
serve the public weal and therein
show themselves fully alive to the exi.
goncies of the times. The personnel of
that body too was conclusivo evideiice
of the sincere desire of the entire
conservative olenent in the Stato tt

cnt and contemptible opposition oi
the part of a single, craoked.brained
individual, there was perfect una
nimity of Fentimeit amongst th
representatives of the various s->ctions
of the State, who seemed deeply im
pressed with the serious nature of
the work before them, and evinced a
determination to discharge the dutieq
devolving upon them in a quiet and
straight forward manner.
It must not be iipposnd that the
Convcntion was simuon-puro Demo
cratio entirely. Amongst its mom
bors were Liiberal Democrats, Bour
bon Demoer:ts, Liberalist., and Lib
cral Republican.s The Bourbom

we were glad to observe that the ef.
fort to Imake the gathering out-and.
out Democratic failed completely
and instead of a party assemblago
there was simply a meeting of th<
friends of Re-union and Reform from
every quarter of the State without re
gard to past political bias. Asuol:
the Convenitioni was a perfect success.
Prudent, sagacious men wvera solected
to represent the State at Baltimore.

the Count-y lie represented, andl wh<
created the only slbecord that was ob

As the result of the Convention
this State is now placed in a posit iom
to say to the other States of' thi
Union that she will most heartily joir

strife, and lend her feeble support ii

The editor of the Indianapolis Sen
tinel was present at the delifecry o

some time since, and thus speaks o

of his speech betokened that. H<i
sawi at a glance that lie had made

ore or during the war. They know that he
vas against us firmly. But they support

e favored the immediate restoration of

ledged to tie Cincinnati platform, which
amands the restoration of State aithority,
nid denounces as unconstitulional the cen

When South Carolina was under the
leaidership of Mr. Calhoun, she belonged to E
no national party, she was not of the Demo- t
crAtic party, but at times she co.operated I
with it. She never yielded obedience to d
the orcek of the party whip: she generally v
refused to send delegates to the Presiden-. t
tial Nominating Conventions of the Demo.
crntie.party, and ostontatiously, on geveral
occasions, she actually east her vote against
the nomninees of the party in the Electoral r
College. -As a State, she was decide-dly op
posed to the Whig party, and not until a
few years prior to 1860, was she ever in
full accord witli the Democratic party.
Whens the Whig part, , through ies regular
nominee, Gentbral Scott, was so overwhlelnr.
ingly defeated, it ceased to exist andl dis.. <
integrated, and from the debris, arose the
Know Nothing par:y, to which many of the t
Democrats of othier States and many in
Souilk Carolina gave in their allegiance.
The Knew Nothing party, the offspring of
confused ideas, and discordant elements,
wmas shart lived. The death of the Know
Keihing party gave bjrth to the necessity
of am new adtjustmuent of party organizations.
From this time, the two new porties, as it.
were, the one composed of many of the old
Whigs, under the old name, D~emoratie,
Ithe othier, compctsed of many DeEmoCrats,
under the name of Republican, commenced
their mission and their career. The ons
educated from the text books of the North
era expoundors of the ConstitutIon. The
other. Iidoctrineted by the teachings of
Southern statesmen, graduatly but onward.]
Fly set tled dow n to measu res; stronglly see'.
tional in their aims and their objects, and
terribly practical In their results. As the
defeat of Glen. Scott was the burial of the
Whig party. so was the result of the war
the death knell to St ate sovereignty, and
yas so proclaimed and declared by the de
feat of Seymour and Blair, and so aoknowl
edged in South (Carolina, when her white
people merged themselves into the Reform
party of 1870, and the Democratic party1
now having noe existence, will cease to have
a name after the 4th of March, 1873. The]
R opublicani party has accomplished its mis-.
ston, a nd only public pat ronage gives i6 ex
istence, and its retainers are nmaking des
perate efforts to hold its pairty adhesIveness I
.by perpetrating lies to perpeluate It ofgan
Ixatien. The dlefeat of the RepublIcan
party this fall will be Its death as a farty
organization, and on thnt occasion will1
spring up another party. When new prin
ciples, new measures and new issues, will
he eagounded, presented and decided.
The Cincinnatti party is to be the miear.s to
accomplhsh the much dlesired and devoutly
to be wished for result, the defeat of the
AdmInistration Ring. No newspar'ty lines
