Secretary Seward in the following terms: "The
official career of Mr. Seward is now drawing to
a close. To the favorable result of the 1 .tte war
his skill and energy largely contributed. His
foreign policy has been successful, and hope
tires when all chances of domestic and foreign
strife have disappeared. He must naturally,
wish, in common with Lord Stanley, to termi?
nate before retiring from office a dispute of all
the details of which he is master. The con?
vention, is especially important, because at a
time when national jealousies weaken confi?
dence it establishes a freer precedent for a re?
sort to arbitratrion, instead of war, for the set?
tlement of diff?rences."'

CHARLESTON, November 15,1868. j
The undersigned would inform the friends
and supporters of Mr. Pillsbury, and those
voted for by the Republican party as Alder?
men at the late election, that if Mr. Pillsbury
and the Board ot Aldermen reported to have
been elected are declared to have been legally
elected by those in whose hands the case now
is, and undergoing investigation, he, Mr. Pills?
bury, and the said board, can qualify and be in?
ducted into office the Monday succeeding such
declaration, even if it be two weeks or two
months from the time they were voted for.
It is unnecessary for me or tho Republican
party to argue the question whether or not the
City Council ought to have entertained the pro?
test. The City Council, representing at least
the de facto city government, have assumed
jurisdiction over the case. It must bj'as?

law. It ought to be assumed that as Council
is composed of men of character and intelli?

the Republican party, if not actually identified
with it, justice will be done and the law vindi?

A COLORED MAN TO THE COLOR.
The following articles, taken from thc i
sionary Record of Saturday, will, we hops,
read by every white man, as well as ev
colored mau in Charleston. They will sh

WHAT IS TSE EE. iL DOTI OF THE COLORED il
JU THE SOUTH UNDER THE PRESENT CLRCl
Within the past week we have been the st
ject of abuse by our own race more bitte
than we ever could have conceived. Wh<
three years ago, we came to this city to occu
the position of an humble missionary, wo c
tered into the work of instructing our race
what we regarded as of the most vi
importance to their well-being. Wo e
tered upon the work of preparing th<
mind to enjoy freedom as we understand
Freedom to enjoy all the rights and immui
ties of citizens. We were aware that thc pe
pie had jost emerged from bondage and ige
rance. We know that uo white man, North
South, could feel for fiem as wo who are bo
of tboir bone, and flesh of their flesh, ai
therefore bound to them by ties which could 1
severed only by death. Wc wore aware tbs
flushed with the new born idea of liberty, thi
might go uro excesses, which would do the
more harm than good. Wc addressed ours el vi
to the task of guiding thom in tho path <
Ee icc, and at the same timo maintain the
onor and dignity.
We knew that two races were hero who he
been educated differently, and, of course, wc:
unprepared for this now change. The white;
who had boen tho masters, could not broc
the liberation of their slaves with calmnesi
would hava their peculiar views, and would e:
hibit their feelings on all occasions. We kne
also that the colored people could not possibi
understand all the momentous questions whic
would arise in the course of reco .structic
and the political changes which were takia
place in our 0 Jun try. Hence wo departe
from our strictly ministerial work and becam
interested in their political education and eic
vation. We have sought to respect tho pr?
judices. of the white while we allaye
tho murmurings of the colored people
we have been earnest in defending the.
manhood against all attempts to wron
them by any class of men from thc North o
from tho South. We have stood in tho brcac
and amid the hottest of tho ii s ht ; we hav
lived to see the establishment of tho law r
jtiBtice to all men by the election of U. E
Grant, and thc sanction of thc whole Dation t
the policy of reconstruction. Having see:
this, we feel that our mission is ended in th
political arena so far as parties are concerned
We now stand as a citizen, identified witl
South Carolina as such, and bowing to thi
supremacy of the United States. We belicv
now that the colored people in this State ough
to turn their attention to business, to th'
agricultural and industrial pursuits of life
We believe that the colored men in thc Sout]
should now seek the friendship o? thc whites
We are all free and equal before the law, ant
that is as much as auy reasonable mau cat
wish; we know that the whites havo the stipe
rior advantages over us in this country; we knov
that in the contest between the two races th?
whites will be tho victors; we know that om
race cannot compete with them now, if ever
Tho \vhitc3 have government, countty, law
commerce, and all thc superior means of civil I
zation; they aie superior in numbers and intel?
ligence. We ace but coming out of Egypt, anc
are po ir, ignorant, helpless, and we need th<
helping hand of the whito race to assist us tc
rise up to honor and distinction. It is men
folly for tho colored people in thc South to sa>
that the whites cannot live without them; cap?
ital and labor must go together, or neither car.
flourish. We cannot succeed while we disre?
gard the mutual obligations which exist ba
tween both races. The poor man must depend
on the rich for employment; the rich, by theil
superior education and position, create basic ess
for themselves and give employment to the la?
Colored men of the South, it is time we were
taming our attention to other duties than fol?
lowing the lead of irresponsible politicians.
Your wives' and children's interest demands
your attention. You should secure land, be?
come tax-payers and industrious citizens. The
whole country have their eyes on you to soe
how you conduct yourselves with tho freedom
bestowed, and if you make bad use of it you
will be the sufferers.
Be warned in time, and securo your own
E. H. CAD, AS A DEMOCRAT.
Friends of .progress, we have lately been
clothed by our colored brethren in Charleston
in a new dress. We cut a beiutiful figure.
Just think of it-a Black Republican Radical
changing his nature in one night. Now let us
relate the process by which we were changed.
The Municipal election was drawing near, the
citizens of both races were considering the
best mcde by which to meet tb* wants of the
city, and satisfy all parties. The Democrats
put forth their c\ndidates, but found that thev
could not harmonizo the conflicting interests*;
they saw that if they run a straight Demo?
cratic ticket that the Republicans would do
the same, and the result would be defeat.
They know that this would pince iu the Citv
Council a class of men, however honest and
well meaning, yet they would ba such as
had had little experience in public affairs
men who could not bring to bear that wealth
and monied influence which is necessary in a
great commercial city like Charleston. They, in
order to conc?iate, withdrew their patty fines
and nominated a Citizens' ticket, but their
great mistake was that they did not put on
their ticket any colored men. R. H. Cain saw
that if there were not some concessions by
both parties that thero would be such ajclcc
tion as would, in his judgment, defeat tnfp-eal
welfare of the city and of the poor people.
Feeling that, now the Republican party was1
victorious, it was tho most befitting time for
the colored people to make some reasonable
concessions to the whit ;s, irasmnch as colored
men held the majority vote in the city, and
could elect all their candidates with the aid of
Knowing that the old and respectable citi?
zens did feel that they ought to have some
share in thc city government, and knowing that
I if a good number of them were m the Council,
that they would not see the city's character go
down under any Mayor who might be elected,
but would sustain it at all hazards, he, in an
art;cle in his paper of the 7th, did suggest a
compromise between the parties and a fusion
of the two tickets by a committee from both
parties, and thus form a "Citizens' Union
Ticket" for Aldermen, and then let each party
elect their choice for Miyor if they could. This
was the plan set forth. The appearance of
worJs of concession in the Record prompted
the gentlemen of the Citizens' party to send
for Mr. Cain, in order to hear any suggestions
or plan by which a settlement and understand?
ing might b9 effected, so as to have a good and
safe city government, in which all could unite
for the general good.
In the interview between the parties, the
gentlemen of the Citizens' Committee pledged
that they were willing to give the colored
people the best assurance that they were
their friends, and were anxious to show it by
being able to give them one-half of all the
public work in the city if they were elected.
Mr. Cain stated to them that he thought that
it was too late to effect anything now, but
if these gentlemen of the committeo
would give the colored people thesj
assurances, he believed that it would
have a very happy effect in allaying the feel?
ing of the colored people and pave the way to
a better state of affairs in the city. He
pledged his word that he would read their
declarations to the people in his congregation,
but could not pledge them any votes because
he could not control that matter.
The committee of the Citizens' pa-ty met
that night and prepared the preamble and
resolutions, which were unanimously adopted
and sent to Mr. Cain; be rend them to his con?
gregation, and left the people to make their
own choice. He fulfilled his promise made as
an honorable man; he did not tell the people to
vote for any sp.cit.' candidate, but said to them
to do as they felt for their interest. He read
his own article pnblished in his paper, and
commented on it. Now for this his own people
have branded him os having deserted his
people and turned a Democrat and sold
them out. This is the whole matter in
a nut-shell; and for this the colored people
have denounced him as a traitor and de?
ceiver. Men, women and children have
cursed him in the streets. For six days
they have threatened to burn his houee down
and to murder bim in the streets. Such is the
class of people for whom he has labored for
four years. Such is the gratitude which thc
new-born citizens of Charleston bestow upon
those who bravo all dangers for their good.
He can afford to wait till these people, who are
led astray by their pretended friends, shall
have time to cool down; till they shall see tho
folly of such a course-their families in want,
house rent due, and no money to pay it. Then
they will remember words of counsel and wis?
R. H. Cain has determined not to be false to
his principles or to his race. He knows that
the white men of the South are able to do more
real good to the colored people here than can
be done by any other class of men. He knows
that if the colored people are not employed hy?
the whites, in this city and State, that they wi 1
have no employment. He knows this question
is one vital to their families. He knows that
here tftey must live. Let the colored men re?
member this, and act wisely for their own good.

the world nearly two thousand years to discover and
remedy one of thc most fatal errors that mankind
has ever believed in. From the time ot Galen to a
comparatively very recent date, lt was supposed that,
in order to euro a disease, it was necessary to weak?
en tho already enfeebled patient by artificial means.
Bleeding, blistering, violent purgation and salivation
were the main reliance of the faculty, not more than
fitly years ago. Restoratives were only administer?
ed ai supplementary ugents, after thc lancet, can
tharide*. jalap and calomel had done their depleting
work. Modern science has effected a salutary re?
form in medical treatment In place ol the nauseous
doscB once administered in capes of indigestion, bil?
iousness, constipation, tick headache, nervousness,
intermittent fever, &c , HOSTETTLR'S SIOMACH
BITTERS are now eiven with the utmost confidence
and the happiest resulte. Ihc reascn way this ad?
mirable botanical preparation his superseded the
debilitating poisons of thc old materia medica are
tliese: it combines the properties ?1 a wholesome
toaic with those of a gentle cathartic, an anti-bilious
agent, a nervine, and a blood d?purent. Thus,
while it ko:ps the bowels free, regulates the liver,
and purifies the current of life, it sustains the physi?
cal strength of the invalid, and by this means thc ex?
pulsion of disease and thc restoration of constitu?
tional vigor go on together.
At this seaton, when intermittent and remittent
fevers, with other complaints arising from a damp,
