test npon which wo have now fairly entered
renderB_.tho-dissemination among the people
of sound political views and ar-rjtrra-.e and ear?
ly information of the progress and incidents
of the canvass, a matter of peculiar interest
and expediency. Every individual who has
any stake in the welfare of these Southern
States, should give an active, personal and un?
flagging support to the candidates of the
National Democracy-SEYMOUB and Biara. A
triumph of the Radicals will result in the
utter desolation and nun of the South, and
the placing of an ignorant and brutal race io
all positions and places of honor and trust, to
the exclusion of the white race. The govern?
ment must be wrested from the thieves and
plunderers who now have control of it, and
power placed in the hands of a party pledged
to give peace to a distracted country, and to
make it a government fur white men, and not
for negroes. It is only necessary that thc peo?
ple should be thoroughly informed to accom?
plish this, and THE NEWS will be an addiroble
means of diffusing this information. In order
te place the paper within the reach of all, we
have adopted a scale of reduced rates of sub?

Presidential canvass, and offer besides peculiar
inducsments for the formation of dabs. We
are determined that THE NEWS shall be the
cheapest and best newspaper in the South.
Its blows will fall thickly, steadily and rapidly;

EBITISH OPINION OF TEX TREATY BETWEEN THE
UNITED STATES AND CHINA.
LONDON, September 2.-i he London Times
to-day devotes its leading columns to an analy?
sis of the treaty recently- concluded by the
United States! with the Emperor of China,
through the embassy now visiting America.
The [Times says England is more interested in
China than any other power. Her commerce
with that country is larger, and since the treaty
of Pekin her relations with 'its government
have been-more friendly.- She assisted the
imperial^anUioririea ia putting down the XaeD
ing wbelfion. England is' the po ver'for
China to employ as a medium for revising her
treaties with other nations, bnt this treaty
with the United States,'-aiming to restore tho
old exclusivo policy, has been rightly entrust?
ed to the manipulations of foreign counsellors
who advise what is impossible-the restoration
of a retrograde syst?m. "
The writer' theo proceeds to dissect, or^ ^

Z? question may' be Asked, is it wise for Eng?
land to multiply her. differences with America
on such grounds as these ? The article con?
cludes : "We are bound to say, with convic?
tion, that there is more underneath these ne?
gotiations than appears on the Burface. ? They
bear distinct traces of foreign inspir?t io J. It
is oar belief that this mission did not origi?
nate with the Chinese government. The idea
of enlisting Ur. Burlingame as a recruit for
the furthering of Chinese ends, so far lom
being' spontaneous, emanated from a foreign
brain, and wai suggested by the departure
from China of the American min ister, which
was growing near at the time the plan was
formed. No doubt; the?proposition waa joyfully
welcomed by the ministers of the Chinese Em?
peror, who, having one object at heart, gave
one instruction to its ambassadors, viz : 'Stop
all progress-as for the rest carle blanche

that his posse wpre captured, taken to a ruin,

The following ie the report mado by Mr.
Hubbard, fie State Constable, in regard to the
recent affray at Santuc, iu Union District :
Having been rrdored by you to Union Coun?
ty to investigate tho riot of tho 2Cth of Au?
gust, and the alleged riotous conduct of a por?
tion of the oitizens of said county, and the
cause, or causes, from which tho difficulties
originated, after a careful investigation of the
tacts obtained from tho whits ?nd colored citi?
zens of said county, I most respectfully beg
leave to make the following report ?
JA Beems that for somo time past ono John
isa icc, a. colored citizen of Unioa County, has
Chimed to be an officer, ordering large bodies
of armed colored men to assemble and -kill,
marching and countermarching in different
portions of the county, practicing target shoot?
ing and often discharging firearms on the oub?
lie highways, thereby causing tho white citi?
zens to apprehend danger to their persons and
pro port y und to protest against such proceed?
ings, making no objections to the colored men
meeting, provided they met manned. It also
appears teat John Bates orders colored men
to guard him from place to place, and at night
many of them going from eight to ten miles to
guard him, thus causing valuable time to be
lost to the employers, and detrimental to the
employee* and faming interest in that vicinity.
On the morning of the 26th ultimo, a difficul?
ty occurred between a white and colored
citizen at Santuc depot in Union County,
which resulted in the white mau being cut by
the colored man. Another colored man drew
his pistol ut the same time upon the white
citizens TI ho did all they could 11 quiet the
difficulty instead of encouraging it, which I
think is greatly in their favor, and showed thoy
On the same afternoon the colored men be?
gan to assemble at tho depot, many being
armed, coming in armed squads. After they
arrived all who were not armed returned some
one hundred yards from the depot and cut
large clubs. The white citizens, seeing this
and fearing a difficulty, requested the colored
persons to disperse, pledging net to molest
Bates on his arrival, but tne colored men
swore they would not leave until John Bates
On the arrival of tho train, Bates' guard met
him, and after some words between him and a
white man, in which both declared they were
for peace, they started io different directions,
when a gun was discharged from the ranks of
Bates' guard. Some declared to me that it
was accidental; others say purposely, and that
someone call-, d out at thu same time, 'D-n
you, if you want a lieut, conic on." At this
rime the white men were standing with their
backs to tho guard, whereupon thoy turned
and fired, wounding several of the. guard and
dispersing them. One ot the guard is severely
wounded in tho thigh, and said that he would
not have been there if Bates had not ordered
him to meet him, having promised them bacon,
at the same timo saying that your Excellency
was to furnish him with ton tnousand pounds
to feedtffte Union League, f examined several
of thejBjolored men, and find that no reason can
be given for their armed meetings, except that
Bates orders them, und they must ob ;y him.
On Saturday, after the riot, some three huu
dred assembled at Santuc, macy being armed.
At the same time the citizens of that vicinity
assemDlcd at Santuc depot, and sent a peace
delegation to the colored men. desiring them to
send ont peace delegates to settle the difficulty.
After discussing tho matter, each party agreed
to meet bi tho future without arms, and that
LO one should go armed at any public meet?
ing, the white citizens ploJging themselves not
to interfere with any meetings, or with John
In the evening Bates arrived, and said peace
was made without consulting him, and with?
out his orders, and that it should not stand,
whereupon a number of negroes went as Bates
directed, utterly disregarding the agreement
they had "signed" in the morning, and on thc
next day (Sunday) Bates was escorted through
the county with an armed guard numbering
from fourteen to twenty.
I met somo colored men who stated ihat
Bates would not allow them to stand to the
I am perfectly satisfied that ono of the causes
of the recent troubles in Union County grew
out of assembling of largo bodies of colored
men, thereby causing many white citiz. na to
ann themselves, who, under other circum?
stances, would have been unarmed ; aud I am
satisfied it is for tho iutotest of both races and
the peace of tho county that all armed demon?
strations should bo sup^r^-bed immediately,

THE DEBATE ON THE DISCBISnN'ATION DILL
ITS HISTOBX-A BOLD AND SENSIBLE SPEECH
Bf DADDY. CAIN-THE REPOST OP THE STATE
CONSTABLE ON THE 6 ANT CC AFFRAY.
[FROS OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, September 3, 1868.-As yon have
already been informed by telegraph, the Dis
crinvnation bill, or more appropriately the so?
cial equality bill, passed the Senate to-day in a
modified form. The discussion yesterday and
to-day attracted largo crowds to the Senate
chamber, and as this bill and its probable futo
have exoited more or less interest throughout
the State for several weeks past, a brief history
of the measure may not provo unacceptable to
The first bill, to prevent discrimination on
account of color, &c, originated in the House
of Representatives, passod thrco readings in
that body, and was sent to the Senate. It was
an extreme, impracticable moisure, and the
moro sensible Republicans in tho Senate at
once determined to modify its features. With
this view, Corbin introduced a substitute
which was simply a re-enactment of thc United
States Civil Rights bill. This did not suit the
extremists, and Swails, colored senator from
Williamsburg, introduced as an amendment to
the substituto the most objectionable section
of the old bill, which was in these wordB :
"Section 2. That it shall not be lawful for any
party, or parties, engaged in any business,
calling or pursuit, for the carrying on of which
a public license or charter is required by any
law or ordinance, to discriminate between per?
son on account of race, color or previous con?
dition, when snch persons shall mako lawful
application for tho benefit of such business, call?
ing or pursuit." This was upsetting all the work
of the substitute, so Corbin tried to get round
it by offering thc following substitute for thc
amendment: "That it shall not bc lawful in
granting licenses to any party or parties to on
gage iu any business, calling or pursuit, for
tho carrying on of trhich a public license or
charter is required by any law or ordinance, to
discriminate between persons on account of
race, color or previous condition, who si
make lawful application for the benefit of si
business, calling or pursuit." These i
amendments were offered on Friday last, t
they have been fighting over them ever eh
until to-day. Ye3terday Whittemore introdui
the following amendment as a substitute for :
amendment offered by Swails : "It shall not
lawful for common carriers in the carriage
passengers or freight to discriminate botwe
[.-.ions on account of race, cobr or previc
condition1." This was lost-ayes 12. nays 13. '
day, after a very lengthy and heated disci
sion, the vote on Whittemore's amendment w
reconsidered, and it was adopted as the
section of the bill, and Corbin's amendment
the 3d section, and the bill passed to a th
reading in the following form :
A BILL to protect all persons in the State in th
civil righto, and furnish tue means of thiir vi
di ca rion.
Whereas, by the first section of Article I
th Constitution, it ia declared that all mon a
born free and equal, endowed by their Crest

The reading of the bill tho thitd time in th?
Senate is a moro matter of CD irse, and it wil
then go to tho Hjuse. Its modified form wil
not be acceptable to that progressive body
Tho difference of tho viows of Senate and
House is too great to be obviated by a commit
teo of conference, and an early adjournmonl
being now probable, tho bill may be regard?e
as dead to ail intents and purposes for the pre'
sent session at least.
The speech of Cain, colored senator from
Charleston, or as ho is more familiarly known
in the city which he represent?, Daddy Cain,
was a remarkable speech. It displayed an
amount of ability, knowledge, foresight, mode?
ration and sound sense, of which no white
man need have felt ashamed. In the Senate ol
South Carolina of tho olden time, where elo?
quent and learned mon were numerous, it
would not have been regarded as a great effort,
but even there many worse spec-mes were
made; and ia this "omnium gatherum" of ig?
norance and dishonesty, it was refreshing to
hear a man talk as if he understood his sub?
ject-as if Lo had purposes and motived above
tbe petty issues of the hour.
lu opening his speech he said that he want?
ed it distinctly understood, once for all, that he
was opposed to social equality. He did not in?
tend ever to enter any other man's parlor with?
out an invitation, and ho would not allow any
man to enter his parlor unless he was invited.
He said that prejudices could not bo l?gislatif
away. He had his prejulices, and tb't?ycoui?
not bo legislated out of his bosom. Tho bill
was untimely, Unwise ?md injudicious. This
was a timo o? wonderful polit ?cal excitement
and revolution. In five years five mULon of
people had risen up from acouditionof slavery
and degradation. Five yoars ago they had
been as cattle, bartered and sold. To-day, by
tho acts of tho gonerals of tho armies; by the
acts of thc Legislatures; by the proclamations
of the President; by tho acta of Congress, Ihey
were hued upon the plain of citizenship, with
equal civil and political right9 with every othen
American citizen. To pass this bill would
simply be to re-declare what Congress had al?
ready promulgated as law. If the law was
passed, still tho only redress in a republican
can government would be by application to
the courts, for any other redress would be a
violation of law, and tho courts themselves
would evaio any impracticable law of social
equality. A nation could not be forced. Histo?
ry proved that where there was deep-rooted
prejudice iu the mind of a people, it was not
to be overcome by legislation, but by gradually
trainiug and educating tai meat;, .it nierai
nature to that high standard which knew no
prejudice. He had beforo seen ihe elephant
of American prejudice suddenly show his
tusks, shako his inane, throw up his trunk,
and crush out opposition in a moment, (un?
der this essentially African simile, he probably
referred to tho New York riots.) You mignt
chain a lion, but you cannot change him. It
was said m Holy Writ that the Ethiopian
changes not his skin, nor the leopard his
spots. Could they then expect to make Massa?
chusetts men out of South Carolinians iu a
day? Those South Carolinians had their
prejudices, the prejudices of two hundred
years. Thoy were proud men, naturally so.
They had been monai'chs of all they
Burvcycd, and no man dared disputo
their rights. Not even Massachusetts dared
dispute them. When Massachusetts sent her
men to South Carolina to plead the cause of
equal rights they were thrown into jail and
told to d apart hastily, flo know that those
days were passed, and, he hoped, passed never
to return, but that only showed how much
they had already gained, and warned them not
to ris t what they already possessed in tho too
cager grasping after.more. Ho claimed to have
some deference for the opinion of men how?
ever much opposed to him in matters of legis?
lation. He had been called an incendiary. The
accusation had been mado in the public prints.
It had even been insinuated by some that it
would be better for the world if ho were out of
it. But with all that he claimed no right for
tho black man which the white man did not
possess. Poor and ignorant as he was, there
were some things which could not be crammed
down his thi oat. He would not admit every
man into his house to associate with him and
his wife and daughters. He would guard with
vigilance his domicil. He would allow no man,
white or black, to infringe his rights, and he
expected white men to have tho same care for
their bornes, their families, their rights. This
bill would produce nothing but strife and un?
settledness, and was detrimental to the best in?
terests of his race. He believed that honesty
was the best policy, and that ho was the best
friend of his race who would tell them the
truth. He believed that he was telling them
the truth when ho told them that this bill was
wrong, impolitic, unwise, uncalled for, untime?
ly and injudicious. He was not afraid to go to
his constituents with his record on this ques?
tion. The common people were not such fools
as some of their legislators. From his expe ri
enco it would have boen better to take men
from the rice fields and send them to Colum?
bia, instead of somo they had sent from oth er
places. He then concluded with a porcoration
about the good timo coming after the election
of Grant and Colfax, whoa tho white man and
black mon would join hands and all work to?
gether for the recuperation of tho State and
the glorification of the nation.
Wright, black senator from Beaufort, who
had heretofore disdained to take part in the
debate as useless, so sure waa he that the bill
Would puss, now felt called upon to exert his
mighty eloquence. He delivered a bombastic
harangue about tho swe>*', blood and corpses
of negro troops, which he said were crying
aloud for the passage of the bill. He said be
waa always ior avoiding danger, but if the de?
mand for their rights brought war, why let it
come 1 Well, I can vouch for his disposition to
avoid danger, having once seen him run across
a street very much alarmed, because on the
pavement where ho was walking a negro boy,
throwing a brick at another, missed him and
hit a gentleman, and Wright thought and said
aloud, "Somebody are g wine to be shot hyar."
But as /or letting war come, and standing up
to it if it did, you could'nt see his coat-tails,
be would mn so fast.
Randolph made ono or more of his stupid,
vindictive speeches, and nearly everybody had
something to say, on one side or the other, un?
til the matter was decided as I have above de?
Meanwhile, they were having a lively time
among the members of the Lower House. The
discussion in the Senate attracted so many of
them that it was almost impossiblo to carry on
business up stairs, and finally they had to ad?
journ about half-post two P. M., an hour earlier
than usual. Before they adjourned, however,
Byass, the stupid fellow who used to make
himself so ridiculous in tho Reconstruction
Convention, and is now assistant sergeant-al?
arms of the House, got offended at DeLarge,
who is tho Chairman of the Committee of Ways
and Means, and was engaged in business of
the committee at the time, because he would
not instantly leave his business and follow him;
rushed up stairs and reported that DeLarge re?
fused to obey tho orders of tho House. The
consequence was an order to arrest DeLarge.
But this proved not to bo an easy or a pleasant
job for thi sergeant and his assistant. De
Large cursed the sergeant, who is a white
man named Camp, from Sparenburg, ex-mem?
ber Reconstruction Convention, in language I
will not disgrace your columns by ropoating,
and told him that if he did not let him go he
would kill him. Camp let him go, but instruct?
ed Byass to keop an eye on him. DeLarge
would not lot Byass come near him, so tho
honorable assistant sergeant-at-urms kopt
trailing the honorable Chairman of the Com?
mittee of Ways and Means up and down the
street, and around town generally, until at five
o'clock, to which hour the House had taken a
recess. He brought him up at his scat just
in front of the spea/orV chair, then a scone
took place which beggars description. De?
Large became violent, and was pat out.
Ho was allowed to come back and make
bis defence, and ho mide it with a ven?
geance, denouncing the carpel-baggers,
who, lie said, had caused his arrest, and
moved a vole of censure because' they had a
spite against him for voting to sustain the
Governor's veto of the Charleston charter and
election bill. Elliott made a bitter reply, and tho
whole afternoon session was wasted in a ridicu?
lous and disgusting manner, the subject being
finally r??cJTea" to a committee Of inquiry.
After DeLarge had made his defence, he Walk?
ed about tho Houso looso in an excited, ner?
vous manner. Some ono told him that Crews
(white), of Laurens, had been spreading tho
report that he was drunk. This enraged him,
and he went up to Clews, who was standing at
his desk, nearly in front of the Speaker, and
leaning across tho dosk shook hia finger in
his face and told him that he was "a
d-d lying scoundrel." Crewa, who had
eaid DeLargo waa drunk because ho
thought that was a charitable construction of
his conduct, now got enraged iu his turn, and
went out of the Houso in au excited and hur?
ried manner. DeLarge followed, :nd I wont
to see the fuD. Crews waB standing at the
bottom of the stairway aa pale as a sheet.
DeLarge waa at the top. Aa I went out De
Largo said to Crewe, "If yen gone down there
to fight you can get much o' that aa you want,''
and that mado out aa if he was going
after Crews, but took good caro not to go.
Ic then told CrewB that if he told any moro
lies on him he would slap his face. He then
wo at back to the Houso. Crews did not say
a word the whole time, but stood at the bot?
tom of the staircase as palo as death, and
looking as if he waa roady to commit murd?r.
So uuch for the doings of the menagerie
to-day. It is certainly an entertaining chap?
ter in tho history of the calico government.

ind mornings are surcharged with the elements of
ntermittent and bilious remittent fevers, and, un?
fortunately, two-thirds o: ti o community are just in
the condition to bo disastrously affected by them.
rhoie who have been prudent enough to fortify
.hem solves duri i; the summer with that powerful
md infallible <tr?> able invigorant HOsTETIER'S
STOMACH BU" KS, are forearmed against mala?
ria, and have u it Ling to fear. But health is the last
.hing too many think about In the pursuit of gain
)r pleasure tho blessing, without which wealth is
IrOBs and enjoyment impossible, is neglected.
Better late than never is a CODS li to ry proverb,
lowever, and all who begin to feel the premonitory
symptoms of any of the epidemics which are cn*
?ondered by the malaria of autumn, should immedi
itnly resort to the GREAT ANTIDOTE OF TOE ASS. A
ew doses of tho BITTERS will break up the chills

ntermittents prevail this pur.st and best of all
vegetable tonics is in dispensa bi J. Of all ant (-bilious
preparations knoxn lt is tho most effective and
lannless. It docs not stimulate the liver violently,
ike tho mineral salivants, bul tones, renovates and
regulates the organ without creating any general

?S-WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU.'
Thia is the familiar question pat to every invalid.
In many cases the answer ls, "I don't know exactly,
but I don't feel well." Look at the countenance o
the man or woman who make* this reply, and you
will generally find that the eyes are dull and lustre
lesB, the complexion sallow, the cheeks flaccid, and
the whole expression of tbe face dejected. Interro?
gate the invalid more closely, and you wiU discover
that constipation, the result of a dis ordered stomach
and a torpid liver, ia at thc bottom of the mischief.
"That's what's the matter." Whoever has expe?
rienced the effects of TARRANT'S EFFERVESCENT
SELTZER APERIENT in such coses, need not to be
told to recommend it as a remedy.
