[ Fro,m tie Wa ithingion Chronicle, Adm'n.]
These representatives of the old
regime in South Carolina couiplaiud
to the. President that the taxes in
their State are too high ; that the
majority of their fellow-citizens are
'I m-taxpayers' and that a ndj )rity

pa)itng a large part of the taxes,
have no voice in the goveroment of
the l'almetto State uncel- the order
of things which now prevails. This
last allegation is, of course, false.
They all have a voice in the gover
t'IVitj it is presimed, in tie sense of
being voters. But being Democrats,
and tihe State leiug Republican,
they can not elect themsel~es to
office, and in that sense they are with.
out any voie.e in the government of
South Caiolina, jut as Republicans
arc without a voice in the local gov.
ernmient in Georgia, Kentucky, or
Maryland. The object of this com

had in view seems to have been to
induce the President or Congress to
dist:ratvuhise the tnfairity of the peo.

of ignornntiee, dishonety, or general

the recent interview between the
President and representatives of the
Soutli Crarolina tax-payers, in whieft
it is btated that he expro-sed himself
in indignat and even rude- language
to the delettatiou on account of &-n
alleged personallv -oonsi-e speech in
the taxpayers' convention in South
Carolina, made by Lo:.o obscuro
member. This pes'on lwas not a

credible that under any circumstances
such it nppcal as that ulade by the
robbed and helpless taxpayers should
have been treated by fle President
of this great country whit reference
to ny personal consideration, and

vituperation for which the conven
