mature in the first place, and in the seco

South Carolina that more delegates should

these fellow-citizens held a larger meeting

They assembled again-say twenty-five
thirty from Charleston, and at least one repi
tentative each from ten other districts. Tl
first point to gain was the good will and c
operation of the Execrative Committee rep:
seating the Democracy of about four-fifths
the State. Gen. Wade Hampton was its chi?
and the influence of Gen. Wade Hampto
whose name, as Mr. Simonton said, is '
tower of strength," was not to be ignored, f
they commenced work. A Committee of Co:
florence was appointed, and arrangements mat
for an immediate pow-wow.
' The chief and only point of difference wi
the negro plank of the April Convention-tl
assertion that the negro is an integral elemei
of the body politic, and that, as soon as pra?
ticable, he should be invested with the right i
qualified suffrage. But for this bone of coi

' Never was Mr. Campbell more softly eic
quent. Never did velvety persuasiveness mor
^adroitly cover an iron will. " Never did sabr
out more keenly than the ?harp, direct, incisi v
arguments of Gary, who, by the way, look
the very impersonation of a battle-blade. Gen
Wade Hampton'sat on the left of Mr. Campbel
and Cob* Thomas on the right. The contes
?began. The condition of political affairs in th?
State was reviewed: the April Convention wai
.described ai having been convened for cortan
local purposes, to effect wbich, the bait of qual
ified suffrage was thrown to the colored man
the logical results flowing from the bestowal o
'the privilege were pointed put, and the banefu
influence of such an issue, introduced into th?
national canvass, especially by South Carolina
was dw eit upon .at length and with force. I
was urged that delegates should be permittee
to go to New York untrammelled by any reso
lotions or instructions; and -that wisdom die
tated the propriety of withdrawing from publi<
consideration a question which at this time
when so much depended on harmony in om
own-State ranks, was so full of danger.
The Executive Commit tea talked long auc
well. Ably and with all the fervor of honest
conviction Colonel Thomas sustained his posi?
tion. He churned that qualified suffrage was a
weapon in the hands of the Democrats, which
in the recent elections they had wielded vastly
to their own advantage, especially in the uppei
portion of the State; that intelligent colored
men were affiliating freely with the party, and
in time would enable them to break down the
vast Radical majority by which it was antagon?
ized.' Therefore, as a measure of exp?die ney
and of principle, he insisted that qualified suf?
frage should be one of the cardinal features of
South Carolina Democracy, and not be hid un?
der the bushel of the Charleston Convention.
It was evident, however, that the opinions en
j tertained by the speaker were not those of the
majority-at least, that this was not the hour
to bring them out prominently. So, with a
view to a compromise, the resolutions pub?
lished in THE DAILY NEWS yesterday were
adopted as the joint expression of the two
committees, and, with a large outlay of con?
gratulations, the two bodies adjourned.
These resolutions are now supposed to re?
present the sentiment, and to be, in fact, the
platform of tho Democracy of the State. They
are strong, short, .and to the point. They do
not commit anybody to negro suffrage, and,
having been endorsed as a whole by the Exe?
cutive Committee, it follows, as a matter of
course, that the April Convention, as an
accommodation to the Charleston Conven?
tion, have abandoned so muoh of their princi?
ples and pledges as relate to the question of
negro suffrage. .fdMft
The result shows what boldness, pertinacity
and shrewdness, when exercised by even a
small minority,' will accomplish when su?
premacy is the crown.
The next victory won waa in seeming as the
representatives of the ten distriots in the Con?
vention a number on the Executive Commit?
tee equal to that appointed by twenty-one dis?
Finally a number of gentlemen were made
happy by being selected as delegates to the
New York Convention, and, to wind up tho
whole affair, General Wado Hampton, the
<eader of ?he opposite wing, was taken posses
sio?f of, and, bj a grand rhetorical coup de
main, made the head and front of this Jone
offending. Diplomacy and good management
could not go further.
- The impression which largely prevails among
the delegates is that Chase has the inside
track in the presidential race; but the nomina?
tion of Hancock would undoubtedly corry joy
to the hearts of the people. Whoever may be
nominated will, it is believed, unite the white
race and divide the blacks, unless money is
freely sent here for their purchase, which is
not hkcly tobe the case. PERSONNE.
THE NEW YOB K CONVENTION.
The New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger writes under date of June 6 :
There must be, after ah, something In that
movement to make Chief Justice Chase the
Democratic candidate for the Presidency.
Among the straws showing how the wind
bio ws-straws now for tho first time visible
may he mentioned the almost unanimous adop?
tion of resolutions to that effect by th2 Consti?
tutional Union General Committee, at their
meeting last evening; the expression of a simi?
lar character by tho Brooklyn Eagle (always a
staunch Democratic journal), and the marked
leaning in the same direction of recent edito?
rial feelers in the Albany Argos. The Pendle?
ton men acknowledge that there is some.hing
going on that does not look right, but thus far
they are puzzled to "get the hang of it."
The city hotels are anticipating a rich har?
vest from the coming crowd. The New Eng?
land delegations are negotiating with the As?
tor House as their headquartes. The ?South?
ern delegates will quarter at the New York and
Southern hotels farther up Broadway. The
Pendleton delegation expect to occupy the Me?
tropolitan. Governor Seymour's friends, with
those of General Hancock, will quarter at the
j The Committee of Arrangements, it may be
added, have engaged the Academy of Music
(adjoining Tammany Hall), together with the
circus building on the other side oftheBtreet,
at the corner of Irving Place and Fifteenth

great public meetings nightly, while the Con?
vention is in session.
THE NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN HE. CHASE AND
THE D EH OCHA TIC PASTY-IMPERATIVE CONDI?
TIONS 07 THE CHIEF JUSTICE.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Times writes under date of the 6th inst.:
The speculation upon the terms of capitula?
tion between Chief Justice Chase and the De?
mocratic party still continues, but from all that
has thus far transpired, it is very difficult to
determine the actual status of the negotiations.
Perhaps either the party of the first part, or
Horatio. Seymour, S. L. M. Barlow and Dan.
Yoorhees. of the party of the second .part,
could give the details, if they were so disposed;
but they do not seem disposed. However,
your correspondent has become satisfied with?
in the last few days of certain imperative con?
ditions, which' enter into the terms proposed
by the party of the first part, and which, when
thoroughly understood by the second party,
are altogether likely to defeat the surrender. I
will add that these facts come so direct that
they maybe implicitly relied upon.
. First, then, the Chief Justice insists upon
makins; Ms own platform. He will not be a
candidate upon any other. He says he can
change his party, perhaps, but not his princi?
ples. Hence if the Democratic nomination is
accompanied with an exposition of principien
at variance with his well known views on suf?
frage, finance and reconstruction, he cannot
accept it. His position, in brief, I understand
to be this : Reconstruction must be accepted
as an accomplished facti suffrage in the re?
constructed States, universal or Impartial,
must also be held to be an irreversible
fact; the credit of the government must
bo maintained in good faith, its contracts
carried out in letter and spirit, specie payments
resumed at an early day, and the national bank
system protected. These are the loading
Eoints which he demands shall be conceded to
im, and if conceded, what will the Demo?
cratic parly have left to fight for? But, on
the other hand, he is not without some mate?
rial which, while he does ?ot regard it in the
light of a concession to the Democracy, yet af?
fords, a common ground open which it so hap?
pens they can mutually stand. This consists
of two ideas-universal amnesty (compensated
for by universal suffrage) and opposition to
the nillitarv element of reconstruction, es?
pecially in its assumption of judicial pow?
ers. He would restore.. the Southern
States to their positions in the Union at the
earliest possible time, and give them once
more the sovereign control of their own affairs,
subject only to the changes of condition
wrought by the war. He thinks the Democratic
party are bound to be defeated, unless they ac?
cept the results of the war in good faith, which
includes reconstruction of course, and cease
fighting over settled issues.
Now, if any one supposes the Democratic
party will surrender oa such terms, they can
have little faith in its record or its honesty. It
never wits a party of expediency.
PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND THE DEMOCRATIC
The Washington correspondent of the Louis?
ville Journal writes:
There is a good deal of fear expressed less
tiie President will not support the nominee of
the Democratic party. But I am able to give
you/Some positive information on this bead,
in conversation with an Indiana politician, who
called at the White House yesterday to congra?
tulate its occupant upon his acquittal, the sub?
ject came up. The Indianian suggested that
the Democrats are a little afraid of the Presi?
"What are they afraid of ?" Mr. Johnson
asked. "Do they think I'm not a go jct enough
Democrat ? Is "not my record sound aoongh ?
What is the matter ?"*
"They think you have not come out equare
enough in your appointments."
"Do they mean Sohofield ?"
"Yes, that's one thing.*'
"How could I do any better ? I had to take
what I could get. The Senate would not con?
firm any one else."
"But they say you are not in sympathy with
the Democratic party."
"I don't know what you call in sympathy.
I certainly have done what I could against the
Radicals. I was born and raised a Democrat,
and consider myself as good a one at this mo?
ment as I ever was in my life."
"Do you mean to support, if I may be allow?
ed to ask, the Now York nominee ? '
"I can't do anything else. I've nowhere else
to go. If I did not I could not do otherwise.
The Democrats are too suspicious of me. They
are too exacting. They don't do me justice. If
they'll go ou and do right they may always be
easy about Andy Johnson.
CHEEP JDBTICE CHASE ON THE SITUATION.
The following confidential letter from Chief
Justice Chase to a personal friend distinctly
marks the present position and sentiments of
Mr. Chase on important political questions:
WASHINGTON, May 25,18C8.
My Dear Sir: You are right in believing that
I "shall never abandon the great principles,
for the success of which I have given my en?
tire life." I adhere to my "old creed of equal
rights," without one jot 01 tittle of aoatement.
I shall be glad if the new professors of that
creed adhere to it as faithfully.
I am amazed by the torrent of invectives by
which I am drenched. Almost everything al?
leged as fact is falsehood out of the whole
cloth. Where an allegation has a little fact in
it the fact is so perverted and travestied that it
becomes a falsehood. I know no motive for all
this except disappointment that impeachment
bas not thus far proved a success, coupled with
a belief that 1 have done something to prevent
its being a success. I have not been a partisan
of impeachment certainly; but I have not been
a partisan on the other side. As presiding of?
ficer over the trial my conscience testifies that
I have been striotly impartial; and I nm sure
that any one who reads tue report will say so.
Individually I have my convictions and opin?
ions, but I have very seldom niven utterance
to them. Indeed, I do not think that the case,
in any of its aspects, bas been the subject of
conversation between myself and more than
four or five senators, and then only casually
and briefly. No senator will say that I have
sought to influence him.
The real ground of denunciation is that I
have not been a partisan of conviction ; and
this denunciation I am willing to bear. They
may denounce and abuse mc and read mo out
of the party if they choose. I follow my old
lights, not the new.
What the developments of the fut ure miv
be I know not. I neither expect nor desire to
be a candidate for office again. It would, how?
ever, gratify me exceedingly if the Democratic
party would take ground which would assure
the party against all attempts to subvert the
principle of universal suffrage established in
eight, and to be ^established in all, of the
Southern constitutions. Then, 1 think, the
future of the .great cause-for which I have
labored /so long-would be secure, acd I
should not regret my absence from political
labors. SALMON P. CHASE.
THE MEIT SECTIONAL CONTBOVEBST.
A writer in the New York Times prospects
politically in this wise:
Among other subjects yet to be opened for
discussion is the Radical difference in the ma?
terial interests of the West' and East. The
South, as a section, is too weak to make a
further sectional fight. It must join one of
the two great sections. The war will be of
capital against numbers. The West will re?
present tue latter. It will demand legislation
favorable to opening the West and the East In?
dia trade, by way of the Illinois and the Mis?
sissippi. Thc East will not like this. The
West will wish to escape the duties imposed
on its foreign consumption. It will insist, per?
haps, that the Eastern bondholders shall
accept exactly the same currency in pay?
ment of the Federal bonds that was paid in for
the purchase of the bonds. When the numbers
of tho West are arrayed on these and similar
questions, it is not impossible that the prin?
ciples of numerical rule which have been
affirmed in all our latter legislation may be
applied to senatorial representatives. Why
indeed should the Federal Senate be organized
on the basis of au extinct statehood ? Why
should not the Federal Senate, as the State
Senates, be based on an enlarged ratio of num?
bers? If each constituency of 100,000 is en?
titled to a member of Congress, why should not
each constituency of 600,000 be represented by
a senator ? This would appear a simple and
a just rule, especially under tho new dispensa?
tion. We need not perhaps anticipate each
sectional troubles, but they seem inevitable.
The South having been extinguished as an
equal and independent section, finds itself
more in accord with the Weet, and will file in
under its banner. The gratuitous intolerance
and prolonged persecutions of the East cannot
be forgotten, and upon a collision, even upon
a comparison of interests between that and
the Wes torn sections, there can-be no doubt as
to tbo action of the South.

DB. RADWAY'S SARSAPARILLA RESOLVENT,
to wit :
Brazil, S. A.
jamaica, W. I.
Japan. (By correspondence.)
Some years since it was deemed necessary for the
protection of the public against the importation of
spurious roots and drugs, for Congress to pass a law
establishing an Inspector of Drugs in every port of
entry in the United States. But this wise precaution
does not prevent the importation of spurious roots,
leaves and medicinal herbs. Nearly one-half of the
Sarsaparillas, Parcira Brava, Peruvian Bark, Ac,
brought into this country and Europe are spurious,
and when prepared for medicinal purposes are, in
fact, useless, and fails to produce the beneficial re?
sults that the chemist and physician expect to
realize. That no such objection ni.iy exist, and that
the public may depend on securing the true roots in
the Sareaparillian Resolvent, Dr. Radway has adopt?
ed i h e.plan of gathering the several roots, kc, used
in his medicines, under the direct supttvision of
trusty and intelligent agents.
This is an enterprise never before attempted, and
it ls one long needed. The loose manner in which
vegetable barks, roots, leaves, gums, and other medi?
cinal substances are gathered by ignorant natives,
hali savages, Hottentots, Ac, and the cupidity ol
these rascals of substituting spurious for the true, in
selling these roots, Ac, to traders, causes many mis?
takes, and often disappoints physicians m prescrib?
ing a root possessing known properties in not fulfill?
ing their expectations.
Hence the wisdom and liberality of Dr. Badway in
adopting a plan that will secure the true and gen?
uine ve getoble substances, fresh from their native
soil, cultivated in gardens and attended with care.
In Brazil he obtains partira brava; Jamaica, W. I.,
sarsaparillian; India, E. I., hemedesmus indiens;
Persia, the Persian oil is expressed from the amyg|
dale nut; Japan, the three newly discovered roots are
grown under contract by a distinguished horticultur?
ist, and the only country where these roots are
grown. These Japanese roots are held in high esti?
mation by the Nobles, Kaimts and distinguished
savans, as purifying agent?, also in the cure of dys?
pepsia, indigestion, jaundice and liver complaints,
and are used as tea, after dinner beverages, and as
tonic drinks, diet mixed in wine, kc, also, possess
the most astonishing virtues over skin disease? and
impurities of the blood. RADWAY'S SARSAPARIL?
LIAN RESOLVENT is, therefore, the most perfect
remedy in the world. No wonder the sarsaparillas
of the shors are su'.'h poor, weak washes compared
with DR. RADWAY'S SAHSAPARILLIAN.
, THE ROOT ITSELF
differs from nil i arsararilla roots ever seen in this
country. Those wishing a pure, perfect r-mtdy to
cleanse the blood and system from all impurities,
