there was a law of Congress prescribing how
their elections should be held, and the people
of Alabama had hot held their elections in con
' forauty to that law. -
The credentials were then referred, to the
Committee on Elections.
The Funding bill was resumed. Stevens

important statement in answer to a question.
He said he bad already sent a communication
to the United States on the naturalization
question, the substance of which was that the1
British Ministry were ready to accept the
American view of the matter. He, there?
fore, thought any misunderstanding between
the two nations was impossible. Lord Stan?
ley also stated that he had declined to make
any treaty at present, as the Boyal Commission

Kfot In Galveston.
GALVESTON, July 17.-A riot began on the
evening of the 15th, at Milligan, on the Central
Railroad. A mob of twenty-five negroes, led
by a white Behool teacher and a negro preacher,
attempted to hang a man named Halliday.
This was prevented by the white citizens, who,
headed by the Sheriff and Bureau agent, at?
tempted to suppress the mob, which resulted
in the death of ten or twelve negroes. On th?
16th the numbers on both sides were increased,
and skirmishing occurred during the day.
Casualties estimated at twenty-five.
A small body of troops arrived late laet
night, and dispersed the rioters, killing three
negroes. The negroes, about five hundred
in number, fortified themselves three miles
from Milligan, and refused to lay down their
arms. The troops tb en dispersed them. The
entire loss of life is acout fifty or sixty. The
difficulty is said to bare arisen from a sus?

COLUMBIA, July 17, 1868.-The telegraph b
already announced to your readers the electi
of Frederick A. Sawyer, Esq. j as United Stat
senator for the long term, ending March 4i
1878. The victory which he has thus achiev
over his chief competitor, Dr. A. G. Mackey,
doubly important from the fact that it not os
secures to the people of South Carolina a re
resentative who, however much he may difl
with them politically, is still a gentleman ai
a scholar, bat it breaks down all those ex te
sive ramifications of political power which I!
Mackey has sought to create and control. Hi
the latter succeeded in nia parp?se no oliga
chy in Christendom would have been more s
vere, and no tyranny more oppressive. Takii
only his speeches as evidence of his future i
tentions when elected, Sonth Carolina won
have been held in an iron grip, sad her peop
would have bean doomed to a fate worse th:
death to gratify the vengeance and satisfy tl
pride of the now disappointed candidat
Hence it is that the Legislature itself deve
oped an opposition to him which has resol
ed in his overthrow; hence it is that there hi
been exhibited a degree of Conservative fee
ing in one wing of the Radical party whic
heretofore was unknown; hence it is that whi
and colored alike have recognized the impo
tance of elevating to the eenatorship a man r
epected by the whole people; and hence it
that the Democrats on the floor threw the
votes at the last in favor of Mr. Sawyer, bi
he ving that, of two evils, it was best to chooi
the least, and knowing that, unless they E
voted, the election of Dr. Mackey would be t
much due to them as if they bad openly ei
poused his cause. It appears as if retributn
justice had placed in the hands of the litt;
band who represent the whit) people of Soul
Carolina both the opportunity and the weapo
to punish one whose aim and object has bee
the subversion of liberty and the degradado
of those whom he <so bitterly hated, impugne

were wont, iu their dark days, to say theil

sure for the first ballot, and confidence reignec
Meanwhile little Timothy Harley, with hi!
! carpet bag, arrived. Tim had been enabbec
by Dr. Mackey io the Convention. He was th?
! only member of that body not appointed upor
' a committee. He swore vengeance on thc
I spot. He took notes ot all the offensive re
marks, improper rulings, and everything else
calculated to hurt the feelings of individual
delegates. He called upon them, stimulated
I their prejudices, raked np old stories, opened
old sores, and finally, by mere naked persever?
ance, succeeded in building np a party op?
posed to Dr. Mackey and bis "ring." After the
?lections he visited every senator and repre?
sentative in person at his home, and there
renewed his efforts. Mr. Sawyer waB brought
forward, and forty men stood pledged to vote
for him before-coming to Colombia. This was
a part of the contents of Hurley's carpet bag,
and when he opened the bndget, the astonish?
ment of the opposition can better be imagined
than described. Harley worked like a beaver.
He found active co-operators in Leslie, Jen:ks,
Webb, Stollbrand, Elliott. Pillsbury, and other
members of the several delegations. The
seed eownin thc Convention began to show
fruit. Tho insulted Timothy began to taste
the sweets of revenge, and to-day, when the
final result was announced, not the successful
candidate himself felt or expressed a tithe of
the enthusiastic satisfaction to which this
pertinacious, pyrotechnic, irrepressible little
bunch of energy gave vent.
Of coarse, the friends of Dr. Mackey are
distressed-deeply so. J. B. Dennis has lost
the promised Customhouse; DeLarge mourns
over the Charleston Postoffice; Rangier beholds
the Surveyor's office receding in dim air; Rainey
has given np all idea of filling the post of Col?
lector of Georgetown; Bowen looks as blue as
if he had already "gone ap the Bpout," and
every other member of the party who had
been pledged an office or other reward (and it
must be confessed they adhered bravely to the
fortunes of their leader to the last), exhibits a
degree of discomfiture equal to that of a dis?
?emebody too ha* suffered in puree. Debts
have yet to be paid, for which there has beeD
no quid pro quo. I hear that some unfor?
tunate fellows received drafts on the Treasu?
ry of tho State, and that there ia grumb?
ling load and deep at the suspicion that
the amount of these I O V 's is to be de?
ducted from their pay. Poor deluded fel?
lows! Many a one bas b.-on most egre?
giously sold. It is evidently worth something
to have a vote in this L?gislature, especially
einae the price has boen raised. Two dollars
and a haif was the sam fixed in the Conven?
tion, bat here it has gone up to the most ex?
travagant figures. Sawyer men are freely
named who have been ottered $200, SHOO, and
in one instance $1000, to change their allegi?
ance. Bat as the homely saying has it, '-that
was a rooster that didn't fight." From first to
last not more than two or three who originally
voted for Mr. 8awyer abandoned their leader.
The scene iu the HOUBO to-day was interest- '
ing. The body convened at ball-past elev-n,
and after the presentation of one or two peti?
tions of no consequence, awaited the arrival of
the Senate. At twelve they made their appear?
ance, were assigned to seats in front, aDd the
President of the Senate presided over the joint
The day previous the qnestiou bad been
raised by some one in the House as to the
right of a senatorio visit any part of the House
for the purpose of conference. The Speaker
ruled that it was out of order so lo do, the
House havmg adopted a resolution forbidding
any person but members from occupying the
seats of members. ThiB touched the dignity
of the Senate, and Senators Allen, of Green?
ville, and Randolph, of Orangebnrg, objected
in etrong terms to any such ruling.
Mr. Whit tem ore said thai chis was a joint
Assembly of Sooth Carolina, and its action
conld not be circumscribed by either House.
The Speaker had no right ta sty where sen?
ators might or might not go, orto prevent con?
ference be:ween the members of the respective
delegations. He was, indeed,. not the head of
the body. The Speaker, F. X Hoses, Jr., re?
plied that he could not reeogniie any person
who addressed the chair excepi as members of
the House of Representatives. Then, said
Mr. Whitemore, "I address you, Mr. Presi?
dent of the Senate, as the orly person from
whom we can expect to get a hearing on this
[Subsequently, in a conference between the
two presiding officers it was determined that
the President of the Senate should preside
over the joint Assembly.] \
Balloting was promptly commenced-the ex?
citement great-the back part of the hall
crowded with white spectators. The Demo?
crats, occupying seats in th? rear and one
corner of the hall, watched every m?ncauvre
vigilantly, and, as had been previously agreed
upon, voted solidly for Hon. J. B. Campbell.
Had they done differently Mr. Sawyer would
have lost some of his Republican votes, and
Mackey would have been elected-?becanse one
of the chief weapons used agaiaat Mr. S. in all
the speeches and publications of his opponent
was that he was a Democrat, Copperhead,
rebel, blockade runner, and all sorts of horri?
ble things-which a good man; of the ignorant
members were willing to believe, especially
when uttered with the peculiar emphasis of
the ex-president of the Convention.
BThe first ballot showed a gain of three or
four votes fdr Mr. Sawyer, at the expense of
Rev. Mansfield French. The signs were en?
couraging, and the President was listened to
with breathless attention when he announced
as the result : "Whole number voting 152; ne?
cessary to a. choice 77, of which Mr. Mackey
received 59, Mr. Sawyer 51, Ufr. French 27, and
Mr. Campbell 16. [Yesterday there were but
15 vot s for Mr. Campbell, 'oat the arrival of
Colonel R. M. Simms, Democrat, this morning,
added to the Democratio strength.]
At this juncture W. J. Whipper (colored)
rose and said that he desired to withdraw the
name of Mansfield French, and for the hearty
support rendered by the friends of that gentle?
man to return his thanks. It was due to Mr.
French to state that his name was brought be?
fore the body at the earnest solicitation of
members, eomc of whom, however, had not
given to him that'strength'which he had a
right to expect, and hence time was necessari?
ly being consumed to Little or no purpose, and
the election was being delayed.
A long-drawn sigh of relief followed this an.
nouncement, and members prepared for the
second ballot. This WSB th? "feeler;" but it
was evident from the outset that in both the
Senate and House? 8awyer bid the heart of a
proportion of Frenchmen. The Democrats
still voted "Campbell," and the result ?tood:
Mackey 68, Sawyer 65, Campbell 15, French 1;
neceesary to elect, 76.. i 1
DeLarge called attention to some of the
members who had rexusgd to vote, and moved
that they be compelled to vote.
Senator Donaldson moved to lay that motion
on the table, and it was agreed to vociferously.
Sawyer stock was now going ap with a bound.
It had been whispered through the House that
the Democrats, holding the election as they
did under their own control, would presently
vote for him as a matter of expediency. The
deepest interest was accordingly manifested in
learning how the manouvre would be received.
Major Simms, in the Senate, gave thc cae, and
and Bullock and Bryant, in the House, were
the first to follow. Doyle, Field, Reith, Hloan
and Stewart, in order to be a force in reserve,
voted "Campbell" still; but the reeult showed
that tho precaution waB unnecessary, ior, of
the 149 members voting, Mr. Sawyer received
76 votes and Mr. Mackey bat 68. The number
neceesary to a choice being 75, Frederick A.
Sawyer was announced by the President to
have received a majority, and therefore daly
elected United States senator, from South Car?
olina for the term ending March 4,1873.
The words scarcely escaped the hps of the
presiding officer, before the hail was the scene
of the wildest confusion, The Sawyerites
cheered long and lustily. Wm. J. McKinlay
wanted "three cheers for a Republican," and
got them, from hiaside of the House. French'e
friends desired to have him aleo remembered
in the pulmonary disturbance, and hie share
was not grudgingly meted oat. Hats flew
through the air, arms gesticulated vehemently,
voices yelled, and members hugged each other
with an energy and industry which, with the
thermometer at 102 degrees in the shade,
could not have been anything but enjoyable
to thoee who are fond of such thinge.^
Shortly after this scene the joint Assembly
diseolved, and the two Houses adjourned.
As was telegraphed you yesterday, Mr. T. J.
Mackey will leave for Washington at once to
enter a protest against the admission of Mr.
8awyer to the Senate on the ground that he is
not eligible under the law-he having been,
according to the allegation, a rebel, a blockade
speculator and BO OD.
Mr. T. J. Mackey has resigned bis office as
Private Secretary to Governor Scott. It is
said that Major J. B. Dennie, a Bureau officer
and member of the' Eouee, goeB hence to the
national capital to aid in proving the state?
DOUBTFUL.-Tbe New York Commercial Ad?
vertiser says that Wade Hampton, Forrest,
Barksdale, Preston. Fairfax, Forsyth, Yerger,
and other di6tinguiBhed Democrats of the
Sonth, are to Btump the Northern States
against Grant and Colfax.
-Speaking of the Democratic members of the
so-called Legislature of this State, the Colum- I
bia Phcen:x says : "The course pursued by j
these gentlemen in the recent election wi IL
meet with the hearty approval of their fellow
citizens throughout the State. To vindicate
principle they voted, to a man, for H m. B. F.
Perry and Hon. J. B. Campbell; but, finally,
when the contest was narrowed down to Mr.
Mackey and Mr. Sawyer, the majority of the
Democratic members voted for him whom they
regarded as likely to do least injury, and thus
elected Mr. Sawyer. But in voting for Mr. Saw?
yer it is not, of course, to be thought that they
nave any sympathy whatever with his political
views. They have not. They meant by their
votes simply that, in their opinion, Mr. Saw
?" er was not so objectionable as Mr. Mackev.
ut8ome of the Democratic members went
further, and placed themselves upon etill
higher ground. T?ese gentlemen determined
to vote for neithet. Th6y beb'eved in neither, and
they would vote for neither. Those whjvoted to
the last for the Democratic nominees were
Messrs. Keith and Doyle, of Oconee; Mr. Sloan,
nf Anderson; Mr. Stewart, of Lancaster; Mr.
Field, ol Bickens."
-The Edgefield Advertiser says : "And now
let us all to work with a will-with Seymour
and Blair as our standard bearers-all hands
making a long pull, a etrong pull, and a pull
altogether, and down goes military despotism,
negro supremacy, freedmen's bureaus, and all
the other infernal abominations nnd unconsti?
tutional usurpations of the Radical party."

The Washington correspondence of tbe New

Rumor has it that Mr. Seymour, while the
Convention was in session, consulted his phy?
sicians upon the advisability of his accepting
the nomination in case it should be tendered to

against it and advised him to decline. They
thought that the cares and anxieties incidental

dangerous to his health, and might possibly
THE CHINESE TBEATT.
Tho Washington correspondent of the New
York Times, under date of the 14th instant,
The Chinese treaty, the substance of which
was given in these dispatches last night, was
before the Senate Committee on Foreign Rela?
tions this morning for consideration, and it waa
substantially agreed upsn. Mr. Sumner will
prepare one or two amendments, and it will be
reported to the Senate for action within a day
or two. Tbe treaty, in brief, may be consider?
ed the opening wedge to the admission of China
to the family of enlightened nations. Its prin?
cipal feature is, that it recognizes China as
a nation, to whom we are to accord inter?
national rights and obligations, and in
that respect is a matter of more importance
to China than to ns, since this country is
very willing to accord such recognition, while
France and England have been backward in
that respect. The treaty further recognizes
the right of the Chinese Empire to the integri?
ty of its own territory, by providing that no
system of internal improvements shall be
forced upon her without the consent of the
Emperor. It recognizes the principles of reli?
gious toleration, the right of emigration and
immigration and of allegiance, and a reciprocal
provision regarding schools and education, it
contains no commercial provisions, as was at
first reported, and is looked upon here as pre?
liminary to other and more important negotia?
tions hereafter, when the principles of the pre?
sent treaty shall have been recognized by ?be
leading powers of Europe

ATTACKS ON OOVSKNOB SSrMOUB.
. The New York Sun notes tb o fact that some
of its Republican contemporaries attempt to
prejudice tho prospects of the Democratic
ticket by intimating or asserting that Governor
Seymour is of eo delicate a constitution Hat
the duties of the Presidency will break down
tho balance of his mind and make him insane.
In that event, as Senator Nye bas asserted,
General Blair would become President, and at
once carry ont bis programme of anarchy and
bloodshed. The Sun very justly says :
This appears to ns a very improper mode of
political warfare, which must recoil upon those
who employ it. It seems designed to wound
private feelings rather than to advance any
leiritimate purpose. Governor Seymour is now
tifty-seven years old. He bas been many years
in pnblic life; he has repeatedly been Governor
of New York, an office whose discharge exer?
cises quite as great a strain upon the nervous
system and tbe mental faculties as that of the
Presidency. In this station, and in every
other, Governor Seymour-lias exhibited capaci?
ty andsic:dinees which have given him a great
reputation as a statesman. There has been
nothing in his public career to justify this bug?
bear of possible insanity.
THE LAST RADIC AL DODGE.
PAIL tl BE OF THE TBTBD PABTT SCHEME-COL?
LAPSE OP THE WHJLE APPA IE-THE MOVE?
MENT COMES TO A DEAD HALT.
As we anticipated the last Radical bubble has
burst, and what wae called the 1;third party
movement/' and was intended te divide and
distract the National Democracy, has proved
as ignominious failure.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Tribune, writing on the 14?b, says :
There is very little speculation to-night con
ceraing the third party, and the whole thing,
if it ever bad any strength, bas utterly col- !
lap;ed. Chief-Justice Cbase gives it no coun?
tenance whatever, and is not a party to the
movement. The third party men are sore?
heads from both parties, whose only aim is
office and self-advancement. They'eec no
future gain in either Grant or Seymour, and
as a matter to be expected they want a third
candidate. Nothicg is definitely known of the
views of the Chief-Justice on the subject cf
The New* York Herald, of Wedneeda1, says j
There aro various rumors afloat from Wash?
ington that certain Democratic liberals who do
not like Seymour, and certain Republicau Con?
servatives who do not like to play tecond fid?
dle to the Radicals, have been sounding Mr.
Chase upon the proposition to run him as a
third party candidate, and that he has no ob?
jection to the movement. We guess, however,
that this is a Republican device to kiH off both
Chase and Seymour by knocking their beads
together, and that the Chief Justice has no
notion of going into such a profitless conflict.
By holding off he may come up as the very man
of ail men for the crisis in 1872, and this, we
doubt not, is bis decision upon the subject.
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Times is more emphatic, for a wonder.
He writes on the 14th as follows :
Tho third party movement talked of in eorac
of the papers has no foundation save in the
wishes ol'a few ot tho diBajjpointed friends of
Mr. Chase and Mr. Johnson. Some corr es pon- '
dents in that interest are giving currency to !
rumora on the subject as 60 many iacis. uen.
Thomas Ewing, Jr., whose name has been
mentioned in connection with the movement,
authorizes the statement that he supports the
regular Democratic nominees cordial] j.
Here is a significant paragraph from the New
York correspondence of the Philadelphia
That third party talk may as well be pat
down as at an end. A New York politician, who
thought something might come of it, after an
interview with Judge Chase, bas returned from
Waehington. He does not say what the result
was, but a snake of the head tells the whole
story quite as emphatically as words could do.
The New- York Commercial advertiser says:
We learn from Washington that the third
party movement, started to crowd Seymour off
the track and crowd Chase on, has fizzled ont.
The Chief Justice encouraged the movement
until he discovered that it was a dead failure,
when be paddled ont and declared that al?
though the Democratic platform was not exact?
ly the thing, still be was a States Bights Dem?
ocrat nevertheless notwithstanding. Deluded
Chief Justice. Humiliated Chase. There is
no rest for the wicked. .
POLITICS IN THE STATE.
-In Andereon District Democratic clubs
have been formed for Broadway Bear, and at
Dark Corner. f
-The Yorkville Enquirer saya': "A duty is
now before ne. We must strive to cast the
vote of South Carolina for Seymour and Blair,
at the November election. It is possible to ac?
complish such a purpose, it our people delibe?
rately and determinately go to work in the
right way. "
-The Sumter Watchman heartily approves
of the Democratic platform. In concluding a
stirring editorial it says: "Let oar people now
arouse themselves to tbe issue-shake ofi in?
difference and despondency. This, with all its
misfortunes and degradation, is still our coun?
try; and every instinct of manhood and patriot- ~
ism prompts ns to do valiantly in its de?
-A correspondent of the Phoenix says: "The
Rev. Valentine Yoong, a staunch Democrat,
was elected to the Senate from this (Abbeville)
District, by an overwhelming Radical majority.
For this reason.ho refuses to take bis seat, and
bas so published the fact. The Rev. R. M.
Valentine, too, I see, has taken his seat as a
representative from this District. He was a
worthy free negro ante-bellum, and has borne
the character of an honest Democrat "since
-The Winnsboro' News carries the names of
Seymour and Blair at the head of its columns.
It speaks as follows of the "bayonet" bonds
now proposed: "The tax-payers have but to
speak oat, and their bonds will not bring five
cents on the dollar. Credit, eave Governor
Scott, who bas speculated largely in South Ca?
rolina State bonds, 'is the life of a State.' If
so, there is not much life in our present bayo?
net-born negro government. Still JesB life will
there be in its bonds. Ab 1 Governor, yon
have done a good and sore thing, for we wiil
malte good the bonds yon have bought. But
be as wise as a common man for once, and
don't touch your own paper. A sensible man,
and a prudent, should cet other people and not
himself to take bis own paper, because be
knows it to be dangerous."
-At a meeting of delegates from the differ?
ent Democratic clubs of Abbeville District,
hel? on Monday last, tbe following resolutions
were adopted: 1. That we have seen with pa?
triotic joy the reunion of the Democracy of
each and a'l the States in the late convention
in the city of New York. And in the harmony
of its councils. We recognize those men of
clorions success in the approaching presiden?
tial election. 2. That we cordially approve and
ratify the nomination of Horatio Seymour as
the candidate of the Democratic party for
President, and of Francis P. Blair for Vice
President. 3. That we pledge' om* resolved
and determined endeavor to bring Sonth Caro?
lina into the ranks of the Democracy of the
Union, and that we confidently hope to achieve
a signal victory over the bitter hosts of radi?
calism, and of ridding oar good old State from
their vandal hand.
-The Georgetown Times says in regard to
the Democratic nominations : "On Saturday,
when the news of the nomination of Seymour
and Blair reached oar town, it was really pleas?
ant to see the smiles and happy faces of many
of our citizens, while across the Bay-street
two 'large United States flaps waved in the
breeze, on one of which was inscribed : 'The
country will be safe in the bands of Horatio
Seymour and F. P. Blair.' We congratulate
tbe country, and more particularly oar own
oppressed and tyrannized South, on the re?
organization of a party that bas been so long
divided-a party that knowB no North, no
South, no East, no West, but determined to
battle for the reconstruction of that constitu?
tion which has been so long lost to the country
of a Washington and a Jefferson-to protect
the inferior race while we ara determined to
maintain the Bapremacy of the superior."
-The Sumter Watchman speaks thus of the
message of Ex-Go v. Orr: "It were better pro
! bably for Gov. Orr and others of the State who
I seem to occupy a eort of go-between position
who bave nor connected themFelves with the
Democratic party and who are not yet avowed
Radicals-to declare .themselves on the side to
! which they belong-we mean to take their
t place in the Radical ranke. Such a coarse
would be more eatiefactory to both parties.
The Democratic party, in the time to come, will
never affiliate with or tolerate thf? men who, m
this trying crisis, abandon their own race, the
constitution, the country, and all that-ip hon?
orable and sacred, to the mercy of the miser?
able rabble now in authority. And those who,
ocenpying positions as public men in the past,
have no heart now to engage, and engace man?
fully, with us in the effort to throw off tbe de?
bauched and odious tyranny under which we
now struggle, cannot be recognized except in
a poeition against us. The issue is a most
vital one-one involving too much that is dear
and sacred to be trifled with. Those who are
not with us now, must be against us."
-The Chester Standard floats the names of
Seymour and Blair at its masthead. It says :
* To insure the success of oar ticket every good
Democrat must 'put his shoulder to the wheel,'
and exert ali bis powers of mind and muscle.
There must bc- no lukewarmness, no bringing
to the surface old issues and reviving the pre?
judices of other days-all must push and poll
together. As was the action of the Convention
so let the people act. We must stand united,
or defeat ia certain ! If beaten in tho approach?
ing contest all is lost-Democracy will have
mado its last fight, and the Goddess of Liberty
no longer wear her cap of freedom. Let 'Union,
energy and action' be the watchword, and the
Radical shackles now binding the limbs of the
American people will cease to oppress, and
Democracy stand forth triumphantly vindicat?
ed in the election of Seymour and Blair. We
can and must carry the old Palmetto State.
Aye. and old Chester with her heavy Radical
. niority must be brought into the Democratic
.old. With energy, action, union and a good
cause to back ns. there is nothing to prevent
ft. Already we have the wealth and intelligence
of the district on our tide, agents which, when
thoroughly aroused and properly directed,
