The State of South Carolina Is just
now engaged in turning some of the
biggist somecrsaultu ever dreamed
of, in endleavoritlg to throw aside
coirrti ptlon and ist itute reform.
And the trouble is we don't know
what end she is going to jump from.
It is a mIatter of pirofounid speculation
whether she will land out of this
somm iersault head foremost or feet
foreminost.
M\oses was regarded as an unsafe
behist to jump over for no 0one can
tell how long lie will stanid in one
place. In answer to the cry "Rihing~
in) nuother horse"' Chuamberla in was
trottedl out. Ile was a comiely well
groomed sleek animal, but surne til
t :e people believedl this v'ery sleek
ness made him too slippery. You
could'nt hold on to him. TJhen
Greene was brenght out. Nothling
could be said aga inst him n eAept that
there was a sear received years ago

well oovered with good honest repub.
hican plastor.
In another field, another candidate
wats brought out. Nothing could be
saiid against his honor, his integrity, his
liberality. lt some of the colored
people still criedIS'thIis wont 'lo." So
the call was made "Bring ini another
horse."''lThis was an entry, made
Oeeially for the beneflt of the col
ored folks. This comier looked benign
and gentle. A t a distance all seem
0d well. Rut on raising theakin
somewhat. wero seen three soars;
or brands deep and long. One wat
"Threw a colored man 1858. ro.

third read "Threw a colored mO

Ile gavd great satisfaction, man:
declaring his efforts to have beei
the linest they had ever heat-d from i

adherecue to the Greene movement.
Gen. Kershaw was next introduc

and Gen. Kershaw voted first. Tlhii
vot3 did noIt prove Mr. Wallace
devoted friend of the dolorod mat:
In 1858 and l859, Mr. Wallae<
was a meniber of the Legislatture, atn
appears on the journals of the hous<
some seven: or eight tinles, an intro
dutcinig l.i'.ls to put free negroes inlt<
slavd ory. N r. W allace explains thu
on the ground that he was sorry: fot
the free negroes. Many free personi
of color were wealthy. Mrs Ellisons
of Sumter, was qjuite wealthy, and ye1
Mr. Wallace was so touohed Wit
pity for poor Mr. Ilsson that he in.
troduced a bill to allow hini "tc
choose a master and go into slavery.
If Mr. Wallace wvas so sorty then, he
miiight now be sorry for them again
andl introduce another bill permitting
them to "choose their maater and go
into slavery9'
Ile had not oared to ubo this an ar.
gument against Mr. Wallace, Lecause
he willing to lot bygones be bygoiles.
But he merely wished to show that
MI. Wallace -had no reason to
bring up the pih.
Having thus effectually disposed
of Mr. Wallace, Gen. Kershaw next
dofined his position on the civil
rights bil. Mr. W altled had oharg
ed in the canvass that he (the speakJ
er) was opposed to the civil rights
bill. This bill, as you all know, wan
dovi,ed by Ilon. ChaaIet Aumnaer, of
Musuaohusbtts ;- propoaed in the last
Congress anud defeated. The subjudt
will no doubt be brought up Ia tho
next cngres. Its objeots and pur
posta ar iell kno Wn to all. As tho
fiend of the coloied pt( ple, and is
an advocate of what would be to their
beFt inteest, he had to declare that
he was not in favor of the bill. It
will prove misebievous in its opera

lead to hbhtility, while ho wanted
peace-puco, always, and under all
oiumustanoe--between the whites

ernment. He had but recently re
oeivpd a letter from a loading Demo
crat of York, urging him to advocate
civil rigits as th4 best thing for the
whites of the South, because, should
it become a law, its agitation all
over the North will sweep away all

the measure for such purposes ; as an
hbnetit man. hib could not advueat itl
when by that alVbeaty be tneant it
for the injury or the bladk i-aca.
Gen. Kershaw next atinounedd that
he favored an equil divisiotl of oli
ces, each race to select its ofn top
resentative men as eatididates, and
thus a preservation of ith righto to
each.
