"literary men, newspaper writers, wita and Bo?
hemians will open their eyes wide with wonder
on reading the account of the prodigious suc?
cess of 51. ROCHEFOET, the editor of the Paris
Lantern. To hear of a young man being paid
??the rate of $2,400 a week, or $125,009 a year,
in gold, for writing as much "matter" per week
as.' would fill threo columns of this journal
nothing like it waa erer known before. But
Eochefort deserves it.
-A'Washington letter says: 'Travel upon
the routes from the Sontb appears largely on
the increase. Each train from that section
comoB heavily ladened with passengers on the
wing North ward, socking a cooler latitude. The
large number of carpet-bags carried by these
. travelers' isanoticeable feature. It bas been
suggested that, as the elections in most of the
-S<jatb'ern States are over, the disappointed as?
pirante are now retttming home."
'-The New York correspondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger says : "Governor's Seymour's
latter to the Tammany Committee is attract?
ing much attention. Perhaps its most im?
portant feature is his statement that the
resolutions of the Convention are in accord
?with his views, and that he will strive to carry
them ont in future, wherever he may be plac?
ed, in political or private life. The Republi?
cans had made a point, that as the Governor
had heretofore said or written nothing directly
committing himself to that portion of theplut
form, maid' by Mr. Hampton, of South Caro?
lina, which declares the Reconstruction acts
null and void, so he would be too wary to com?
mit himself to it<hereafter--but the point in
-the face of thia communication, you will see,
amounts to nothing."
-The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Gazette says: "A highly important
question has been mooted, end is DOW being
discussed in political circles here, as to wheth?
er the Southern States can, by any constitu?
tional or legal means, rid themselves of the
carpet-baggers, who have succeeded in creep?
ing into the United States Senate, without a
constituency to represent, if it be shown that
they do not represent the people of the States
from which they pretend ta hail. Prominent
.legal gentlemen have given an opinion that it
could be done by means of the writ of quo war
ranto, to be taken out by the Governor of each
State, and thus bring the question into the
Supreme Court, where the legality of the
Southern elections could be thoroughly tested
. and determined.'1
-The New Orleans Times says: "Mr. 8. Ty
ler Bead has en bis 'Sea-Glen' plantation, near
the month of Pearl River, some sea island cot?
ton, which rattconed this year from the roots
of last year's plants, md is now loaded with a
luxuriant growth of blossoms, forms and
bolls, promising even a finer product than the
last year's growth". For those readers who do
not understand what is meant by the word rat
toon, we may state that the cotton was not
planted at all, but shot -np this year from the
. roqts of the old plants. The price of sea island
cotton last year from the same place was $1 20
. s. pound, and this year is said to be very flour?
ishing and even more valuable. The cultiva?
tion of tbis speoies of cotton, as is well known,
is only adapted to peculiar localities along the
islands and sea shore ef the Southern States,
and the fact that there has been a belief that
the cotton can only ibe successfully raised ou
the. sea islands of Georgia and South Carolina,
has only hitherto prevented ita more extensivo
introduction. We should like to. hear from
some of our friends of the two last named
. States, whether any such phenomenon as the
, one mentioned has been there witnessed."
-The Nashville papers give an extended and
interesting account of the proceedings of ox
Confederate general officers at a meeting held
.in Nashville, and at an interview with the mil?
itary committee of the Legislature on the first
instant, at which the following ex-Confederate
officers were present : Generals N. B. Forrest,
B. F. Cheatham, G. J. Pillow, B. B. Johnson,
8. R. Andereon, W. B. Bato, George Maney,
George W. Gordon, W. A. Qmarlea, Thomas B.
Smith, G. G. Dibrell, John C. Brown and Jos.
B. Palmer. At the meeting of officers held
preliminary to the interview with the military
committee, Gen. Forrest was chosen chairman,
and a memorial to the Legislature was adopted
and signed by all the officers, at which it was
emphatically denied that they sought the over?
throw of tho r?tate government, nor did they
believe that there was any organization in
Tennessee, public or secret, which has such a
purpose, and pledging all their influence to
uphold and support the laws and aid the au?
thorities in their execution. At the same time
they respectfully suggested that a removal of
the political disabilities resting upon so many of
the citizens of Tennessee would heal the
wounds of the State and restore the union and
prosperity of the people. In their interview
with the military committee the same senti?
ments were reiterated in speeches by Gen.
Brown, Gem Forrest, Col. Boche, Gen. Cheat
bam, Gen. Quarles and other officers. Col.
Prosser, of the military committee, made a
speech, expressing confidence in the honest in?
tentions of the ex-Confederate officers, bat
said that lawlessness had been committed
which must be suppressed, by moderate means
if possible, but, if necessary, by extreme
MONDAY MOBNTNG, AUGUST 10, 1868.
For President..H.OBATIO SEYMOUR.
For Vxce-Presilent.FRANCIS P. BLAIR.
General Har .pion, the South and Rev?
It is difficult to deal with adversaries who
believe that all is fair- in political war; and
when, in addition, these adversaries have
it in their power to publish false statements
which they will not oorrect, it becomes
almost impossible to escape calumny and
avoid misrepresentation. The South ex?
pected that the utterances of its leading
men and the expressions of its people would
be garbled and perverted by the Republi?
can press; but while there is a Democratic
journal in the country, or an honest Demo?
crat in the North, East or West, we do hope
that the falsehoods and slanders of the Rad?
ical organs will not pass unchallenged.
South Carolina bas, of course, received
more than her meed of attention at the
hands of her political foes. The same men
who urged that this State be cut loose from
the continent and buried beneath the waves
of the Atlantic; the same men who skulked
in wagon trains, or blasphemed in legisla?
tive halls, while their countrymen marched
to meet the South; the same men who plun?
dered their own soldiers during the war,
and urged the organization of a war in peace,
that their profligacy and peculation might
continue to flourish; these same men have
heaped their slanders upon oar heads, and
hare tried with might and main to persuade
their people that every man who ever wore
the gray would be to aU time ?a rebel and
a traitor." They admitted the repentance
of such men as the forger BOWER and the
flag-raising MOSES, bat protested that such*
men as HAMPTON and PERKY, BONHAM and
BUTLER, MCGOWAN and Bunt, PIOKKNS and
CAMPBELL, would always be the enemies of
the Union and the constitution.
They have made WAUK HAMPTON their
especial mark, and at him have been hurled
epithets too warm for gentle Southern ears.
We know that they are unmerited, we know
that they are false; but from one end of the
country to the other goes the ory-the
South is disloyal, South Carolina is OM the
verge of rebellion, WADE HAMPTON is en?
deavoring to inaugurate a new and bloody
It was proper that Berne notioe should, be
taken of these assertions, however patent
might be their silly mendacity to the people
of the State, and General HAMPTON, there?
fore, in a speech delivered in the Demo?
cratic Conventk on Friday, and published
in our oolumns this morning, alluded t'o the
imputations which ' had been cast upon his
soldierly honor, and denied altogether the
particular charges which had been brought
against him. General HAMPTON declared
that the people of the South were earnest
and truthful in their desire to support the
Union and the constitution,-that we were
ready to accept the decision of the Supreme
Court as to the constitutionality of the Re?
construction acts, and to abide by that de?
cision,-that we wanted peace,-that the
flag of the late Confederacy was buried for?
ever,-that he, in common with the South?
ern people, was fighting as earnestly in the
interests of peace as he had done in the
interests of war,-and that he urged our
people to avoid prejudice or passion, to en?
dure the misfortunes they could not control,
and to fight the great struggle with peace?
ful agencies alone.
This is what HAMPTON said, and it was
preceded by a resolution in which the as?
sembled Democracy of South Carolina, sit?
ting in Convention, resolved "That, whilst
"we enter our pro/est against the Rad?
ical Reconstruction acts and the evils
"they ere bringing upon the South, we rely
"with confidence upon constitutional agencies
"andpeaceful instrumentalities alone to bring
,(us the relief we seek and the reform we need."
Upon constitutional agencies and peaceful
instrumentalities ALONE do we rely to bring
us the relief we seek and the reform we
need. This is the reply of WADE HAMPTON
and of South Carolina to the cry of "revo
"lutiou" raised by the malignant Radical
Congress Caught tn ita Own Trap.
The fourteenth Constitutional Amend?
ment, now declared to be a part of the Con?
stitution of the United States, seems to
decide the manner of voting for electors for
President and Vice-Prc?;dent in a very sum?
The section two of the amendment is as
"SECTION 2. Representatives shall be ap?
portioned among thc several States accord?
ing to their respective numbers, counting
the whole number of persons in each State,
excluding Indians not taxed. But when the
right to vote at any election for the choice of
electors for President and vice-President of the
United States, representatives in Congress,
the executive and judicial officers of a State,
or the members of the Legislature thereof,
is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such
State, being twenty-one years of age and
citizens of the United States, or in any way
abridged, except for participation in rebel?
lion or other crime, the basis of representation
therein shall be reduced in the proportion which
th* number pf such mali citizens shall, bear to
the whole number of male citizens twenty-one
years of age in such State."
The plain conclusion is.that if in any
State the election of Presidential electors is
taken out of the hands of the people and
placed in the hands of the Legislature, the
whole number of citizens in the State, not
members of the Legislature, will be exclud?
ed from the ba?is of representation, which
would give the State no more than one-hun?
dredth part of one representative or vote in
the electoral college instead of the number
to which she is now entitled. It is to be
hoped that the Congressmen from Florida,
whose State has already passed a law giving
the election of Presidential electors to the
Legislature,.will at once resign the seats to
which they have no right.
WE DESIRE to call the attention of the
white people of this State, and of the North?
ern States, to the detailed acoounts of the
negro military organizations in the country
districts, given in our report of the proceed?
ings of the Columbia Democratic Convention,
published this morning. It will be seen
that the people of Union District narrowly
escaped an attack by a band of two thousand
armed negroes, which, we may add, was
considered so certain, that the mother of one
of the negro prisoners in the town jail was
waiting near the gate for his release, and
that a number of colored women came in
with baskets to take their share of the
plunder of the stores. Thia may be the
"peace" of General GE ANT, but to us it ia
worse than war.
THE HON. ABMIBTEAD BUBT, PreBident of
the Democratic Convention, said, as the
session of that body was about to close:
'Let us make every white man in South
"Carolina a Democratic canvasser, and every
"family a Democratic Club." These words,
together with the sober, thoughtful words
of the Hon. JAMES B. CAMPBELL-"There is
'less danger from saying or doing too little
"than from saying or doing too much;
"that which is left unsaid to-day may be
"said to-morrow; what is said to-day can
"not be unsaid to-morrow"-must be our
rule and guide in the coming contest for
THE Democratic Electoral Convention
passed a resolution announcing that the
earnest desire of the Democracy ot the
North and West, to work with the South for
the restoration of the government and the
constitution, haB done more to heal the
wounds of the past than any occurrence
since the war.
WE HAVE not space to publish an editorial
synopsis of tho proceedings of the Democra?
tic Electral Convention published in full

WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN
Are made strong by the usc of the.-e Bitters.
Recovering from any severe attack of ^sickness, will
find these Bitters peculiarly useful In restoring lost
strength, by removing thu cause of nobility and in?
creasing the appetite. They should toke a teaspoon?
ful three times a day, mixed with a little water.
The Hepatic Bitters are also recommended to those
suffering with Chins and Fevers, when it can be
token in connection with other remedies prescribed
for such complaints, and will assist the action of
these medicines, supplying the system with the
much needed strength lost under the debilitating
effects of malaria upon the constitution. 3 be doss
in such cases, fora grown person, would be a table
apoourul three times a day, immediately before
Dyspeptics should never be without a bottle of
HEPATIC BTTl'ERs, as they have been uniformly
found to restore the stomach to ita lost energies, and
thus lead the patient back to the enjoyment of thc
blessing of perfect health. They should take a des?
sert spoonful thr-e times a day, on hour before each
meal. These Sitters are also recommended to phy?
sicians, and con be used by them in lieu of other
tonics, such as I met. Columbo, Tinct. Bars. Tine:.
Gentian, ?nd all the cat a ologub of bitter tonics;
fur excelling these lu its I action upon the system,
being a combination of I many useful tonics and
aromatic curmlnatm-s, which are rendered aperient
by the addition of a .ittle Turkey Rhubarb, making
a preparation long needed by the profession.
