General Sheruu's order to the
colmnianding officers of the army
stationed in the Southern States,
covoring the Attorney General',:
circular of iistrl('tions ilo inarsha~ils,
is evidently lmeant to pl'.b them ulpo
their guad. The ge(nc'ral sentimient
of the arily oflicers is reullgnkanL to
the soit of duty that Gr-uit, Taft.
and Cai~ineron wonhtl iil)ose upn
thei. It is known that they pro
test vigorously in a private way
against this police service. C. Sherinant
has no love for the South, but ho
has a strong inlPIly iveliing l4nkd
strong dislike of the Washington
intermueddlers with it. He has an
nouned that the order addresscd to
ani officer niust be a proper one, adl
that the ofhicer i.: himself to ju.-e
whether it i;+ (onlipa ilc with hii
iilitary duties. If deein'd by him
not compiatable, lie is not to obey it.
The general judgment in the army
is that the United States inark) shaIls
cannot call up1on0 them except. in case
of riot, where it is aibsoluttely net's(..
sary to protect the peace. It is th I
consciousness: of thiti feling that
his inspired the reserve which we
sere in eneral Sherunin's order.

icolor issue has taken under reckless
leatders in Charleston. Various
lispatches have gone to the leaders
im MouthI Carolina, and especially to
Go)ve( rno( Chabulerlain, earnestly
imi-st ing that the negroes must be
botter controlled, or the North will
revolt at the G(ranit-Camerion policy
adopted to carry the election, and
they have also been been imlplored
by tIelegraph to get ouit a prompt
stateient. from somebody denying
tiat. the negroes wantonly attacked
a peaceable boly of their own race,
for no other reason than that they
chose to be for the Conservative
tiela-t. Thime gravity of the case is
heightened by the general disorder
ly spirit that is steadily cropping
out and growing among the more
ignnmrtit an(1 idle negroes, since the
J)lblientioin of Secretary Cameron's
nilitary onler relative to tho South.
The political leaders of the negroes
lmve all given the samiio inltorpreta,
tion to Cmneron's order, just as was
itended(1 by Grant and Cameron
themselves, and that is, that the
urmiy is intended to protect the
n(gl'roo(s in anything they shall see
lit to do in the nameio of the party.
Sinattor Patterson publicly declared
mn this city before tihe Cameron
order was issued : "We've got to
lise h---l somehow with the nig-.
gers ind get fit'h troops lown there,
or the (1-4 rbiels will carry the

in o!cdience to th1is spirit, more

The colored club at Walhalla, now
numboring about thirty limembers,
were addressed by Governor Perry
in the courthouse last Saturday
night,, they requesting him to speak.
The Governor explained to theme in,
a plain manner the condition of the
county, the heavy taxation which
ultimately conies out of the laboring
popullmtion, the necessity for reform,
the assurance of better govermaent
in the election of iamptoi, and
that the intorosts of the whites and!
blacks were identical, and they
should be friendly. lie proved to
them that no power on earth could
take away their rights of freedomu
and suffrage,as both are guaranteed
by the State and Federal constitution;
and, further, that the whites neither
r- .. .1 :t at-" A ~ .
infringe upon their rights in any
way. The Governor was clear ad
forcible in his remarks, and they
had a decided eff'ct. At the closo
of his s)eogh Col. Aiken made a
short and telling talk to them, and
several joined the club.
