Mr. Pelham of the P"nsix, waited
upon Gov. Chamberlain, stating the
above facts, and asking in the cause
o that the arms be relfrned.
They disclaimed any feeling of hos,
tility, and feared th.t the arming
of the militia might provoke some
disturbance.
Judge Carpenter showed that
there existed thority for mill
tia companiea;to retain their arms,
and that it was unadvisable, in view
of the past, for them to parade fre
quently.
Gov. Chamberlain thanked the
committee for their 6ourtesy and
diseretion. He was desirous of pro.
moting harmony in Edgefield, and
agreed that It was contrary to good.
law and good policy for bands of
men to keep in their houses the arms
and ammunition of the State. II1
would issue an order for their re
turn to the proper authorities. He
would send a responsibl and capable
person to examine into the condi,.
tion of Edgefiold, In the meanwhile
counseling all parties to a faithful
observance of the peace.
The committee retired well pleas.
ed with the result of ther visit.
Gov. Chamberlain has struck. ,the
right chord. The proud spirited
oitizens of South Carolina cannot
be won by threats ; but a few words
of kindness, a few acts of justice,
after all the outrage they have suf
fered, cannot fail to win their esteem
and good will. If Gov. Chamberlain
continue to aot with justice and
fairness lie will .ind no obstacles to
the caupe of good government
thrown in his path by the Conspva..
tives.
Another step In Omarism.
Another step has been taken by
the President in is way to the third
term. Ilis interference in Louisi
ana affairs is the first scene in the
second act of the drama which is
now deeply intoresting the people
of the United States. The first
scenes were enacted during the era
of radical supremacy. From thi.
opening of the second act. exoiting
events may be expected, probably
terminating in a thrilling oatastro.
phe. The radical party from a
combination of causes has been hope.
lessly wrooked, and can expect noth
ing from a fair election. Ite'policy is
now to assume the -aggressivo and
by threats and force, and reuklesi
4kcts, to bully the people. The

less hold their own in 1879. No,
this majority is made up largely of
the votes of the Southern States,
these aggregating 115. In the Northa

till 1876, both parties will clain
several of these states, and the re
suIt cannot be foretold. South
.Carolina, Florida, A labama, Mtia,
siasippi, Louisiana and Arkansas casi
-13 votes, and these make a differenge
of 86 votes in the general result
if any of these states cast a demio
t oratie majority, as all but Souti
Carolina and M~issiusippi probably
b will. GJrant will suffer his hiench
nien to swear that fraud and Intimida
tioin are practised and then, upon theiu
-oaths wiill send his tools with Unitei
s States tr.'ops, to uphold fraudulene
a returning boards, who will declar~
radical majorities. If necessar
Georgia and North Carolina wil
be included. Grant will then main
tain his seat, unless ejected bj
force.
This can be accomplished only by
a continuanos of anarchy in the South
and this will be contin'iod by Fede
al interference in State polities.
This programme assures that Grant
will be nominated by the radical
party, Of this there can he but
little doubt. Hfe is necessary to the
party, in fact, the party itself. It is
a dead body only preserved, by his
mesmeric infirenee. Under the
touch of Blair e or Morton or kray
other republican, it will crumble to
dust. Thle radicals fear Grant, wans
bate hiw. Buat. he is there only hope,
because he has the audacity and the
nerve to inaugorate and execute
daring violatlocsi,of the oonatitution
and in these only, In setting a.side
the will of the people, and manufalo
turing fraudulent returns after the
fashion of N'apoleon, rests the sole
chance for suecess with the radical
party,
