Now HIorrors are Awaiting Us.
A very largo part of the Northern
eople, says the Southern Home, are
Lahameid of Grant's ignoranco and
boorish ways. Many more are dis
;uitcd with his bribe-taking, his nepo.
Lism, his idleness, his pleasure sock
ing, his vulgar assoointes, his complici.
[y with thievish rings, &e., &c.
Some are seriously alarmed at the
rapid courso of centralization and
are beginning to understand that the
enslavement of one part of the coun
try, must eventually lead to the on
slavoniout of the whole. Iero and
there in the rural district-, a man of
primitive simplicity may be found,
who sincerely pities the Suuth, and
looks with indignation upon the out
rages inflicted upon us. These va.
rious classes of persons constitute
Lwo-thirds of the Northern people,
and if they would vote at they feel to
ward Grant, lie would hardly earry a
Northern State. But it is undenia
ble that the maijority of the Northern
peole will support him in preforene
to Mr. Greeley. It is equally undo.
tinblo, that they favor Grant, because
hey look upon him as the embodi
neunt of Northern lhatred to the
outhi. Ho stands out ns the incar
lat ion of tl.e mnaligant feeling to
rards us, and thousanids and tens of,
Ihousands will vote for him, who look
vith contemup' up'on the man, and
lespiso hhmu ii t heir hoorits.
Voting for Grant at thle North,
neans sim ply an expression of opin..
on that the cup of suffering at the
southi is not yet full, and that new
murrors are awaiting us. Tlhe recent
leve'lopmuents ought to satisfy every
souitheorn man, that the party of fraud,
at ied and violence mneans to crush
a~ to the ear'th, and that no effort
hould be spared to deoat them.

ludes a beautiful editorial on the

Irant's Re-Electiou--Wtiat it Meaje, %
To assert that Oant's re-eleotion ii
as due to 'lis personal popularity, 0
nd was sitply -a tribute of respect
nd esteem tendered him by the
Loerican people, is ubsurd and ri- d
iculous, and no thinking, practical t
ion so iterprets it. The result of
he late election, of course, indicates
'cry clearly that, on between Grant V
ud Greeloy, the country at large f
avored the fornier for the Presidency. I
t shows also that the latter received
is whole support from the South, a
aot more siguificant than the Radioal
arty would have us believe. From
6 review of the campaign can be
irawn the conclusion, in our opinion,
tonest and reasonable, that Horace 4
Ire.oley's defeat was attributable I
hiofly to his acknowledged friend
hip for the Southern peoplo, and to I
Ie enthusiasm and high favor with i
Lvhich his nomination both at Cincin.
iati and Baltimore was received by
thom. The opposition no doubt
would consider this as an extremely
partisan view of the case, but we
sontend that all the circumstances
3onnected with the contest sustain
such a conclusion. It is well known
that Southern influence brought
about Mr. Greeley's doublo nomina,,
Lion, and this in itself was suflicient to
3ondewn him in the eyes of the
Northern people, and to force then to
vote for Grant, despite their con
tempt for him. We believe that it
was eninently proper that Mr. Gree
ley should be suj ported 'by the South.
The exponents of Radicalism all over
the country have proclaimed for the
past four years that the Southern
people were still disloyal and rebel
lious, and still cherished in their
hearts hate towards the North. Mr.
Greeley's nomination by the Democ.
racy, through Southern influence,
ought to have been sufficient to crush
this slander. A life-long abolition

slave-oeracry, ought to have - convino.

that the South desired to bury see
tional animosities, and work for the
restoration of peace. But this
strange spectacle seems to have pro
duced a directly opposite effect nortjh
of Mason's and Dixon's Line, and
Grans's reuclection proves that the
overtures for pence by the South
have been ruthlessly rejected by the
people of the North. 'That is to say,
Southern support was too heavy a

Three Days onl a Wreck.
Joseph A. Dupong, a Port Royal
pilot, last week was the hero of a dar
ing adventure. On Monday afternoon
of last week, says the Beauftrt Re
publican, "he went down in the pilot
boat No. 2, and boarded the wreck of
the ship Energy, ashore off Hunting
Island. The ship laid on a sand spit
ten or twelve miles from shore. thirty
miles north of the light ship Dupong
determined to stay on board, is he had
convinced himself that the ship might
be floated, or at least part of hser ear
go saved. The other pilots were
loathe to leavo him on the wreck, as
there were indicatinm of an a ppromwh
