THE FUTURE OF SOUTH CAROLIN'A.
A REPUBLICAK'e COMMENTS UPON MEN ANS TRINOS
. IN SOUTH CAROLINA T7NDEB THE NEW BEglMl
THE POLICY Off GOVERNOR SCOTT-THE HEW
REPRESENTATIVE OF CHARLESTON TN CONGRESS.
A correspondent of the Kew York Times (who,
from the tone of his letter, is evidently a Re?
publican) writes from Charleston under date
of April 24, giving his views rather freely con?
cerning men and politics in the Palmetto State.
After noting the completeness of the Republi?
can triumph at the recent election, he proceeds
- Yet the election is far from satisfactory. Its
results as to principles is aD that true patriots
can ask, bnt in important respects it falls
short of what was expected by the friends
-of true reconstruction. Not m every case
has sufficient respect been paid to the com?
monest honesty, and it most be said and
-known that in this first great election by the
new nation the scheming of the politicians out?
generaled the virtue of the people. These re?
maras should not apply to General Scott-the
governor elect for the State of South Carolina.
His record is good? and he doubtless is what
bo reputes to be-a plain, straightforward,
honest soldier. Sensibleof the delicacy of his
trust, and trembling beneath the weight of re?
sponsibility now laid upon him, he goes for?
ward with anxiety, and is frank enough to fear
that he is not in the highest respect the man
to lead South Carolina back to her place. Bnt
.genuine modesty after all generally guards the
way to real ability., and we can anora! to wait.
'Governor Scott will employ his whole energy
in the work, and as it is well known that he is
hot extreme in hu views Or disposition, bnt
judiciously the contrary, it is fair to presume
that, ring-masters aside, the whole people will
rally to hi 8 standard, and reconstruction will
begin/ One thing your correspondent knows
he will not please the extremists, and must not
be classed with the Butler, Stevens and Sum?
ner lotion, bnt he will use his hard Western
cense where they would resort to fine theories,
and establish order where thej would pursue
Let Governor Scott go forward with his
work, determined to bury the pest, arid bring
divorced elements together by uniting eympa
thyfoT the fallen with -justice 'for all,.and,
though not a statesman, he will succeed in the
highest efforts of statesmanship, and place
South Carolina within the fraternal embrace of
the Constitution of the United States, and re?
store her to the confidence and pride of the
world. To do this it is not necessary for him
to cry. Radicalism, and throw dally taunts of
the worst party spirit into the teeth of the van?
quished. He will not find it in bis line of duty
io pursae the flagrant wrong of reminding the
enfranchised blacks of then* supremacy,' and
their mastership over those who once proud?
ly lorded it over them. He will not
find it compatible with public interest to out?
rage every feeling of manliness by every day
shaking; the broken chains which so chafed
and galled them in their servitude, thus arous?
ing their forgotten hatred for their helpless
masters of the former age. as so many extreme
measure men are doing here to-day, as your
correspondent can testify, having heard and
?seen. Such a course, here deprecated and
condemned, can -have bnt one tendency, name?
ly-to inaugurate what many predict, because
thev desire a war of classes, which would be
simply exteimrnation of one.. If Governor
; Seo tt h as a policy, it is one of humanity-broad,
; true, catholic, humanity-within the spirit of
the Constitution of the State and of the United
States. Let him, .therefore, be encouraged
and upheld, and let him not fear the noun dinga
of partisans or the threats.of factious. The
: country will find that your correspondent has
! not mismeasured this man, or drawn a false
portrait. Gerv Scott is respected here, for the
qualities we have named, by all classes. ' The
i chief rebels soften in their respect for him,
i while they know him "to bc firm and unflinch?
ing, and the blacks ate enthusiastic in his
praise, for he reminds them constantly of him
who "with charity, for all and malice toward
none," signed theppbclamation which shivered
Uiah hum* WSIm^^*?* ^s***-5**T '
The representative elect to Congress from
the Second District, (which includes this city,)
is a Mr. C. C. Bowen, ot whom yon have
doubtless heard something. How Mr. Bowen
can take the oath remains to be seen. One
thing seems to be conceded here on all sides,
namely, that his nomination was iniquitous, and
his election can bring nothing but mischief to
the people ?hose interests he seems anxious
to take charge of. Not gifted, but bold; not
discreet, but voluble; not learned, bnt swag?
gering; not particular, but ambitious; not black,
bat comely-this Georgia Confederate Captain
Wormed himself into the ring, into the conven?
tion, into the nominating mouth and over tbe
heads of worthy men into the saddle for a seat
in Washington, and by the will of reconetruct
ea South Carolina is declared the choice for
the same. He who was cashiered in the rebel
service for misconduct is accounted worthy to
sit in Washington, the first representative of
reconstructed South Carolina, from the proud
City of Charleston I Well, justice to whom jus?
tice, and charity to whom charity is due-but
this man was not, is not the choice of the peo?
ple, and it is hoped that the Congress, so ready
to impeach a President for high crimes and
misdemeanors, will prevent this man from
adding insult to injury,
j The remainder of the letter is devoted to an
eulogy upon the career and qualifications of
the Secretary of State elect.

JO-BITTERS.-THE HUMAN STOMACH
seems to require a tonic stimulant From the time
whereof the memory of man runneth not to the con?
trary, tonic bitters have been used. Formerly men
made their own bitters, and few thought of eating
breakfast without first taking their "tansy." Those
were days, however, when prohibitory laws were un?
known, and, in consequence, liquors were pure.
Dealers could then afford to be honest and eel! noth?
ing but the unadulterated. Now, however, what
with government tax and court fines, pokeberry
juice and alcohol must pass muster for "old rye "
and "pure bourbon." People have come to fear
poisoning more than m tl sri*1 diseases and dropped
their "tansy." Bight here is where HOBTETTEB S
SMITH, of Pittsburg, have provea benefactors.
Years ago they commenced the manufacture of HOS
TETTERS STOMACH BITTERS, laying it down as
a rule that has since been conscientiously followed,
to USP nothing but the purest liquors, manufactured
expressly for them. By strict adherent ; to this rule
they have won public confide Lice and reaped their
reward to a large, profitable and steady business.
Their BITTERS is known aU over the country.
They are pioneers of the business, and have the lar?
gest manufactory in the world. Nor bis success in
their case, as m tao many instances, rendered them
careless; their Bitters is as pure and good to-day as
was the first distillation. We heartily recommend
them as a tonic.
As a specific for dyspepsia, biliousness, consti?
pation, nervousness, general debility, and remittent
and intermittent fevers, its efficacy has nev<r been
There are many worthless imitations; we earnestly
caution the public against them.
