AN INFLViNTIAL REPUBLICAN OUGAN
PROTsTS AOAINST TnE PASSACJ OF
THE CIV.I. RiGHTS IL..
tNew York I imes, May 27.]
When the civil rights bill roachod
a vote in the Senate on Saturday
morning, after a continuois debate of
twenty hours, twenty-nine members
voted for it, and seven were paired
in its favor, making thirty-six in all.
Thus, the bill passed one branch of
the National Legislaturo by a minori.
ly vote, for it lacked two votes of a
mn:ajority of the whole Sonate. The
passage of the bill in the Senate
cannot be considered as an authori.
tative doolaration of the purpose of
the Republican party. The mea.
%ire has yet to be discussed iii the
House, and we hope that it will be
thoroughly discussed, without undue
ogard to tho votes of the negroos.
.Nobody would think for a moment
of making much a law as tho one now
proposed fortho benefit of the Irish or
German imniigiant, and it is not sin.
gular that the popular sense of jus.
tico, which is always In advance of
that of logislators, should be already
askinig why thei negro should be thus
espceially favored. If it is intended
to break down social prejudices it
will provo futile, for these are ad
havn over been beyond the reach of
legal enactments. It it is designed
to give the negroes rights which are
not accorded to other clatses of citi
zens it will be equally a dead letter,
for the people will not tolerate any
distinctions in the law for or against
any clas. This bill is, in fact, a dis.
inction against all clases except the
tlie negroes, and as such it is as sure
to meet with very general- opposition.
If it is accepted as a Republican
measure the party is aure to Buffer
from it. 'his fact was very clearly
recognized during the lifetimo of
Senator Suoner, and we do not see
that his death has wade any differ
ence in the caso.
It has been urged that this bill is
required to coml)lcto the policy of
reconstruction upon which the Itepub
lican party entered at tho close of the
rebellion. But the policy contaim.
plat-edi nothing more than the politi
cal enfranchisement of the blacks,
and this was seoured by the eonstitu
tional amendments. It was no part of
the Repubihiean purpose to force
mixed sobools upon the people, or to
onifer upon any class the privileges
specially accorded to the negroes by
this bill. ''he great question is
whether an, h a law as this is neces
sary to protect the blacks in any of
their matorial rights. That point
ias almost ontirely overlookod by
both sides in tie Senato, but we hope
it will be given the weight it deserves
in the llouse, where Gieneral Butler
has already brought himself for ward
as thic especial ehamnpioni of the bill.
Tihe latter fact is in itself suilicient
proof that the measure is one which
ought to ho very carefully serutinized
before it is allowed to beeoome pairt of
the la wb of the land.
Thle Pillage of Soulk Cahrolina,
It is more thtan probabule that the
vile gang of thieves whtich lhas been

Governmnent has for sonic time been
much omb arrased for funds. Tfhe

found it dificult, it is said, to procure
from the tradesmeni of Clmi

The Young Mon's Republioau Party
Our last issue contained a comnmu-1
nication asking information in regard
to a call publis! -d in the Uniion-t
Herald for the reassembling of the I
Young Men's Republican Party.- 'I
Our friend met our approbation in t
his views. t
The young men in every State and
every nation comprise an imiportant ~
element of the population. T'hey ~
have youth, activity, energy and en
thusiasm. They form the armies of3
the world, and the bone and sinew of I
peaceful pursuits. It is therefore
highly proper that they should have
a voice in the government.
In every State in which there are
organized parties, the young men
have their clubs, and perform most
of the labors required in the eanvass.
The success of the party depen'ts
greatly on the number of "young .
meni's clubs" working for it.
It is highly proper that in South
Carolina there should be a young
men's party. The old Conservatives
are tinctured with Democracy, and
identifled with obsoleto issues. Thme
old Republicans, or 01(1 leaders of
Riepublicaiinim arc tainted with cor
ruption and identified with villainy.
There can be no compronmise between
these classes. But from the ashes of
the 0o(d Demnooracy, anid the old lsad
iealism, a now piarty may spn ing up,
taking from the one, honesty, and
from the other, the advanced uieasI
of the platfor m as it is preached, not
practiced. This compromise can bo
effected by the young men of the
State, wvho have been tanght~ by
experience since the war. We there- I
fore heartily agree with "P. X. P. 13."i
in the propriety of suoh a convection.
But we cannot endorse the aYounig1
Men's Republ'an Convention" that 4
was announced in the Union-Herald.
Wo know nothing of its object. But 4

Rtemarking upon the entire cost in ed

nay again get into power, and then be
