I cannot swim that river,
But if my ship shonlaleome in, i

To the lady I hope to win.
J trust that she ber raith will keep.
But tho river is broad and strong and deep.
I know she has many lovers.

And bricht gold at her feet ;
Had I but thee no river would keep
Mo from my love, though 'twere broad and deep.
But I make abridge o'my fancies.
And I cross to that plea-ant land ;
I weave her hair through mv Angers.
And hold her hand in ru v hand,
And kiss her lips in her Innocent sleep.
Though the river is broad and strone and deep.
Could I build the arrhes of silver,

Not waiting until I am ola

THE CITY ELECTION CASE.
Debate on Corbin's Bill.
[FROM OTTO OWN COnBESPO>"DE?ST.J
COLUMBIA, S. C., February 9,1869.-IN THE
SENATE, to-day, thoro waa bat little prelimi?
nary bnsiue88. Alter tho u?ual calle for peti?
tions, &c, tho President announced the arrival
. of tho hour for the consid?ration or the spe?
cial order, to wit : A bill to confirm and de?
clare . valid the recent election of Mayor and
Aldermen of the City of Charleston.
On motion of Swaiis, the majority and mi?
nority reports wore taken up for consideration
. with the bill, and the reports read.
On motion, tho memorials of the citizens of
Charleston lor and against tho bill were read.
''The bill received its second reading, and was
taken up for consideration by sections.
Hayne, of Marion, was the first speaker. He
spoke a?,follows r
Afr. President and Senators-I rise to ad?
vocate tho passage of the bill. Thc act passed
at the special session of 1868 to provide for tbf
election of officer? of incorporated towna and
cities, makes it obligatory on thc Mayor and
Aldermen to declaro tbe election. This the
Acting Mayor and Board of Aldermen of ibe
City of Charleston failed to do, and were at
last compelled to declare it by the Supremo
Court by a writ of mandamus. By this com?
pulsory "declaration, they declare that Gilbert
Pillsbury and bis Aldermen received thc largest
humber of votes, but still the Acting Board of
Aldermen refuse :o surronder tho offices to
their rightful claimants. What is tho cause of
this refusal ? A protest from thc opposing
candidates, claiming that the election was
illegal. Charges of fraud are mudo on tho Re?
publican party and its candidates. This
was not dono until the voto was
made known tho day alter the election.** It
ill becomes the Democratic party to ever men?
tion the word fraud. We need not go back
any farther than this very election. It is well
known to every ono who has over seen the list
of voters in thc City of Charleston, that thc
Republican party is largely in the majority.
What is therefore tho cause of so small a ma?
jority for Mr. Pillsoury, it it is not mere fraud
aod bribery. Over five hundred men w_ce kept
away from the polls on account of threats and
intimidation, tithers were paid large- amouuts
to keep away from the polls. Others were
drugged and every means conceivable used to
defeat tho election of tbc Republican candi?
dates, and through all this they were elected
by a majority of twenty-two votes. Frauds
were commif.cd at the polls by tho Democratic
party. These can be proved. The Republican
ticke*a woro counterfeited at the polls. On
these counterfeits were the names of thc op?
posing candidates. This was but ono of the
many mean tricks to which the Democratic
The Acting Board of Aldermen, taking ad?
vantage of their situation and position, advan?
tage of t he confidence reposed in them as ser?
vants of the people, openly oppose the will of
the people and refuse to vacate their Beats.
Many wonder at this conduct. Th 3 Democrats
say it ia noe us, but the Republicans. They
have been appointed to these positions by the
military and not by our choice, AS ono of tho
senators often remarked, ''there is a rat m the
meal" which desires to destroy the whole bag.
The Acting SJ jyor is a wholesale grocer, and
furnishes the etty with supplies. One of the
Aldermen is a lamber merchant. He supplies
tho city with lumber. The othor.tho Chairman
of the Finance Committee, forms a trio, or a
." ring, which forms the opposition to the Mayor
', &ad Aldermen olect.
To vacate their positions would prove detri?
mental to their interests. lu this case, as in
many others, meu have trampled law and or?
der nuder their feet for thoir own aggrandize?
ment. It is nearly four months since the elec?
tion was held, ana the rightful claimants aro
kept out of office. The court has decided al?
ready that they have declared the election,
and the law says their decision shall be bmd
. ing upon all partiers. Still they refuse and
desire the claimants to aDpeal to the Superior
courts fur a quo xoarr.into. This is the time
and place for the Legislature to interfere. If
it was tbe first instance where parties refused
to surrender the office to the rightful owner it
might be left further to the courts.
But, at this very moment, tho Regis?
ter of .Mesae Conveyance, elected by
Joint vote of this General Assembly, is
compelled to sae oat a quo xoarranto before be
can obtain bis office. 1 am in favor of ejecting
those people, who act iu defiance of the laws,
at tbe point of the bavouet if necessary. Wo
must let them kuow that law and justice must
prevail; that tyranny md usurpation shall not
be countenanced; tbat tho wi'i of tho p-toplo
shall be regarded. As servants of thc people
it is our ducy to protect their interests. ?.i
Thursday a senator said it was not right to ap?
peal to party. I should like to ask ir the Re?
construction aots, which gives the H eua to ra the
right to seats on this floor, and thoir coubtitu
ents who sent them herc thc rieht to vote, was
not a part? measure; aud but for til? party
measure a majority of us would uot bo here to?
day, the senator himseif not excepted.
WU not these very actadouounceJ aa uncon?
stitutional by tbo very set of men who clamor
and howl about this bill us being unconstitu?
tional. - R.'fuso by your votes to-d.iv to pass
this bill, and in every instanco where tho Re?
publican party arc successful by small majori?
ties, tho other side will contest their seats. lu
a few years you will not bo able to boast of a
two-thirds majority, but will bo contented to
get a third. I would ask if there is not a pro?
test before the Election Committeo from thu
Democratic candidate hom Marion County,
contesting my seat. Like that very caso it cannot
be pro yd. Oue of their rally ing committees
was bold enough to tell me if a certain poll bad
been attended to they could have carried the
It is said in Charleston tbat this Legislature
can be bought for a price, and a i jw price at
that. A lew days ago, while in the city. 1
learned that certain men were pledged to de?
feat thia bill, aud ihe remark was m ido that
they were woll, aid foi so doing.. If there arc
Judases among us, let na find tndm om before
they sell our lives for thirty gioeubaoks. A
senator bas offered mo a bribe, bunt was spum?
ed with ind gnatiou, and should another at?
tempt bo ina?e ? will expose him.
Maxwell followed lu support ot tho bill, dis
chiming all factions and partisan feeling, but
abusing tho Democrats aa having lied und
sworn to ovorride tho wi I of tho people. After
thc declaration ot the Mayor ana Aid rm . a of
tho voto.- ci sr, he coiiid not do othoiu.su than
support tho bill. It was only a:i act of irimple
juslic?, au exposition o? thc popular voice.
Mon were starving in thc st.cetu of Clmios
tou who hal u cn ostracised because of tueir
devotion to their country, its liberties aud
laws. PiLVbory and his Aldermen were duiv
elected and the bili bbonld pa.-s.
Rev. R. H. Cam followed Maxwell, and said :
Mr. President a.-.d tienaiors-l regret ix
Oeedingly that this question is torced upon this
General A^-semb y. I regret it tho more bu
Cluse it involves tho intctestf, the weli being,
the peace, quiet, commercial, agricultural and
social relations aud happiness c f those who
are immediately connected with the op.ratiotis
of the election m the contest which bas been
going OD so Icug. 1 wished and boped tbat
the courts, those legitimate tribunals to which
I think it belongs >o settle tLis question would
have had tho settlement of it, und tbat the
Legislature w.iuld not have be^n troubled.
I am opposed io this bili for various reasons:
First. I believe that its passage will be like tbe
Pope's bull against the comet, that it will bavo
just about ; B randi effect, as far as abating tho
claimants to tbe offices in dispu e is concerned,
lam opposed to tito bill because 1 believe it
cou'd be settled without tho interlurcnou of tho
Second. I propose io notice the grand spec?
tacle of two reports, both eigned by the same
i n nj
Dumber of men, that is two. One is called
tho majority, and tbe other tho minority re?
port, but being equally divided it is difficult
to say on which side the signors properly ar?
range themselves. However, t will baso my
reasons for the objections I shall offer to the
bill, on the majority report, and tho act of thc
General Assembly under which the election
was held. [The speaker here read from the
act, section five.] That says the candidates
receiviug tho hrpest number of legal votes
shall be declared duly elected. Now tho act of
the General Assembly expressly says tho
votes shall bc legal. The officers named in
the act aro the judges as to whether
the votes aro legal. If upon examina?
tion the votes are found to be legal, then
the parties elected have tho right to en?
ter upon and exercise the functions of tho
o*Hce to which they were elected, and not be?
fore. Now, by thc act, the Acting B.>ard of
Aldermen were mado judgos of the election,
and they have said Ibero were no legal vote3
cast. When they made their rein rn to the
writ of mandam us, to the Supreme Court, thoy
said according to thc count. Gilbert Pillsbury
had a majority ot votes, but that majority wero
illegal votes, and heneo they said tuo election
WJS invalid. That was their answer. Upon this
point hinges tho whole case, that is. as to tho
ler-ality of tho votes cast. When it shall be
proved that the votes cast wero legal, theo I
shall be prepared, as quick as any man, io as?
sert the tact aud the r;ght or these gentlemen
to take their seats.
It is required by law tbat these gentlemen
shall be legally elected. I know gentlemen
lure differ on these questions with myself. It
is proposed by this bill to confirm what the
committee admit in their report to be frauds.
Do they really desire the Senate lo confirm
frauds ? They have also stated that the quota?
tion eau go before ttra courts and the claim?
ants receive justice, but they tell ns time
wings its way too slowly to meet their wants
and accomplish their purposes. Hence they
want the Legislature in its sovereign capacity
to come here and confirm frauds.
The gentleman from Mariou assorted that
five hundred men were driven hom tho polls
or not allowed to exercise their rights.- If so.
there must have been some force or some
Dower to drive them away, otherwise they
staid away themselves. If it be true tint thoy
wero locked np in mills, then there is every
reason why they should hove another election
to let them out of the mill.
Again, ho Bays frauds were committed by
tho Democratic" party. If there were frauds
committed by either party, then, as an hontst
man, 1 want an honest expression of tho will
I of the people. I believe the best way for par?
lies to succeed is to succeed upon the immor?
tal principles of justice and equity. It has
been said that this protest was put iu after all
tho returns were made. I will state that the
nominee of the other side made no protest,
and that it was entered by sundry citizens. I
am prepared to prove that the protest came in
when returns from seven wards only had been
received. So that the statement that the pro?
test was entered ouly after all tao returns
wero in is not proved by the evidence. 1
Another Doint. Tho rcpjrt goes on to say
the> conducted tho election in good faith, but
admits that thc oath was not administered.
What right had they to onter into au election
without all parties taking tho proscrii:o;l oath,
when one section of the law says they shall bc
oworii ? It the managers or voters wero ?ot
sworn, they violated the law. Yet tltey como
here aud a?k us to validate a lie-to make per?
manent, strong aud valid a violation of the act
passed by the General Assembly. I never can
aud never will give my voico or vote for such
proceedings. YYheu tho law is specific and
clear, it is tbe duty of every man f> wry out
that law, to per.orm his duty according to law.
It he violates it one jot or tittle, he violates
tho whole of that law. Ibo report says this
was doue wituou. ??ny wroDg intent. That was
written by learned ien in the law, attorneys
and United States at t tr ney s at that.
I have uothirg tc. say as to I ho fairness of
lhat election. I was there. I know too much
of this clectiou. I was down by the Oily Hall
and I witnessed a good part of it. But the
committee say the Acting Board ot Aldermen
bad no right to declare tho election void. I
would liku to know how you can legalii. i 'rands
unless jon can make right wrong anti wrong
right. The managers and the commitfcc 6ay
it was a fair election, yet those persona did not
take tho prescribed oath. It not, could they
not have committed any am mut ct frauda?
Tbis committee themselves have acknowledged
it to be wrong, and they know by virtue of tho
fraud ccmmiticd tbe election was null aud
I do not believe that when this bill lurfsc*,
as I have no diubt you will pass it. lt wlil effect
its purpose. I know in taking thc position Ldo
I shall be branded as a deserter fro.u my party;
I shall ba charged with having uild out and
gone over to the Democratic pnrt" ; tbat I um
with tbe Democrats cheek Jy jo**'.. 1 know it
will be said that I havo receive I money, per?
haps a thousand dollars, fer in;. . peech m de?
fence. But, whatever mav b: y'd, I will not
shrink from doing what I doc?' uv indispen?
sable duty to those I raprescnt, white and
colored. I believe tho bill calculated to do
more harm than good. It Las been asserted
that if this bill docs not pass it will be re?
garded as a Democratic victory.
But who arc tho men you desire to oust.
There are but three known Democrats in that
Board of Aldermen. All the rest aro Republi?
cans, and, what 13 more, seven or niue were
elected at tho recent election. But as honest
men they were cou polled, after a lengthy es
aminatiou, to declare upon their oath that the
election was illegal. No mun will presumo to
doubt thc Republicanism of Air. Robt. Howard,
Mr. Richard Dereof, Mr. Potter, or Mr. God
dings, Mr. Wall, and other gentlemen on that
board, who have prououueed the election null
and void. Seven of those Aldermen, as I havo
said, aro elected, and they wero appointed
under General Gui by's order. Would they, if
not compelled by tho evidence, make a declara?
tion which puts themselves out of offico ? If
tbey were not conscientious men would they
declare the election null? Tho present in?
cumbents in offico hold their positions
to some extent under tho Tenuro-of-ofliee bill
passed at the last session. They were appoint?
ed under tho Reconstruction aots, which say
they shall hold ?frico u-til the machinery of
civil government is in operation, and sumo
persons aro properly elected to take their ot
ficos. I hold Mitt Iii*. Clark and tho pre out
AlJcrmeu cannot relinquish their seats uutil
their successors aro duly and r guli, ly quali?
fied by the law. lnasmacti as the Ljgvslaturo
!:avc inado it tho duty of tho Mayor aud Alder?
men to declaro tbe clectiou, I say there is no
power to oust thes^ men out of their offices
uutil they nave declared th-ir successors duly
qualified. Until a fair unbiased election ia
hell, and a legal declaration mado b;> the pro?
per authority, I care not ho.v many tickets you
apDrovo, Mr. Clark can hold his effico uuderike
Reconstruction acts until it is decided that

In tho return to thc mandamus, it is said.

votes cast, but it is also said those votes were
I know thc learned counsel has told us thc
courts have decided tbat question, but if I re?

ot Mr. Pillsbury wote not betbro it. It was
simply that tho answer should lie to answer

Cain. I believe these measures will only
bri apr discontent, war and destruction to tbe
best feelings among thn people. I believe
legislation should wisely comprehend the
best interests of the wbole people. I do
not believe legislation will accomplish
any good result when mado in a narti
san spirit. The poople of Charleston
want rest. They have had onougb of troubio
aud turmoil. This bill will not briner them
rest. One of thc speakers said largo numbers
of men were going about the streets in a starv?
ing condition. That may bo true. But there
are moro mon of that class at work now than
have been for months past. Just as soin as
this bill is passed, labor operations will cease,
business will cease, and eily stock will go down
to fifteen cents. Bvervthiug else will po down
in proportion. Men of property, and monied
men and men of influence, will stop their ope?
Maxwell. Wore not the monied men of
South Carolina opposed to the Reconstruction
Cam. Doubtless they were. There were some
Reconstruction measures I was opposed to. It
bas been asserted chat if this bill does not
pass it will injure tho Republican party. I
caro nut a sous marquee fer party when they
vi?lale law and seek to destroy Ihe best inter?
ests of my homestead. If I understand the
design of government, it is to afford protec?
tion tD life, liberty wai property, and when
party spirit rons so high aa to endanger these
interests, then I cannot encourage it. I claim
to be as good a Republican as auy man ou this
floor, or in South Carolina. I am willing at all
times to suffer and stand up to defend tbe
rights of men. I do n-.t understand
Republicanism in any narrow, restricted,
circumscribed sense. TX is freedom, liber?
ty, and justice to all. I believe the Repub?
lican party will certainly go down if this mea?
sure is pa^cd. But I believe tho party wdl
yet do right aud maintain its own laws. If it
will undertake to put down frauds, frowu dc wn
violations of law, then itmrst bo successful.
Mr. Leslie. Mr. Preside it, it is rather an
odd time for mo to commence talking about
this business. I don't think that a good busi?
ness man would talk but a veiy lew miuutes
about this bill. I do not think tbeie is but
very little to bo said. If a mau knows what he
wants to do, let him go aud do it. If he don't
meaD to do it. let him stop wbeie he is and say
so. Do wc know what we want to LO? Dal
know what I want to do? 1 will ask tbat ques?
Ou one side of the House there appears to
be great sympathy for the Mayor and Alder?
men elect. ' They desire not that they shall be
elected over again, or elected in any other
manner than the manner provided by law, bul
that they shall have their seats. They claim
on one side that an election has been held, and
that Mr. Pillsbury rei eived a majorify of the
votes cast and also his Aldermen.
Now, then, the Jaw has spent its force, lt
has done all that it was expected to do. It ha*
secured a decimation from the officers named
by law to make tkat dcclaratiou. and that was
thal Mr. Pillsbury received a majority of votes.
Mr. Pillsbury by that declaration is mate
Mayor of thu'Cily cf Charleston. What is thc
Senate called upon to do? To order another
election? No. To tinker up tho law? No.
To validate thc law? No. But to proceed to
put Pillsbury in his soat, and his Board of Al
dermeu that were elected. That is all wo are
called upon to do. It is all anybody has a
right to do. But if Pillsbury got that dono tor
bim, tbut is all they have a right to expect.
Will we do it ?
I can say in regard to this case precisely
what the sonalor from Charleston can sa j;
precisely what other senators say. Thc ground
work of what I wish to say is this: ibave offer?
ed nay substituto for just ono reason. I havo
always felt tbat in a republican form of gov?
ernment a majority vote eutitlcs tho party re?
ceiving it to his soar. If any amount of fraud
ie alleged; if it is alleged that there has been m
' timidation; if it is alleged that fraud bas been
used, it does not offer a iy excuso whatever for
a refusal to give a certificate to tho party re?
ceiving a majority vote. He is entitled, in all
cases, to a certifie ito of election and his scat.
I Whether you liko it or not, that has always
been tbe law.
Now a decoration has been mido by tho offi?
cers namediu thc election law, that Pillsbury
and his Aldermen received a majority of tuc
votes cast. I am ready lo do what is neces?
sary to vive Mr. Pillsbury and his Aldermen
their seats. When I have done that my work
will cease. When Mr. Pillsbury is seatsd then
it will be for the party aggrieved to contest
his right. If tbat party can say that lhere lias
been bribery, and such influence as that
brought to bear by which he had been defeat?
ed, j would give that party every right to test
?be case. If ho can say there has been no
bgal election, let bim oust Mr. Pillsbury
and bi's Aldermen. Tho only reason I
Minsen ted to introduce tho substitute was
tbat the country should not misunderstand
my motivo by my vote. I know this,
that partisan politicians often aro guided by
what may seem to help their party. For in?
stance, you carnot find a Democrat here to?
day who would vote for tho senator's bill from
Charleston, or thu bill I introduced. You can?
not find one of them. But you will not find
many Republicans who will not vote un one
side or the other, on this bill. I woulc have
beeu glad bad some of thc Democrats intro?
duced that very bill that I introduced. It is no
new principle that a majority of votes cast
entitles a party to li s scat. It has always
beeu a Democratic principle. I do not caro
whether they were legal ot illegal. I do not
caro how many protests there were-if bc got a
majority of votes, tho party is entitled to
his scat, aud that is the Democratic doctrino
and nothing else. Who denies that? But it
malios a good deal ol difference, whose bull is
gored in this matter.
I have said that I introduced lhai ll (the
substituto). I did it because I think 1 am in?
dependent enough to declare my vole and tbe
reasons for it. Independent or* polities I may
say what 1 have a right in saying without be?
ing affected by political parties. I havo
bo >cd io seo Ljorc style of that wurt; done. But
let a man como up hero, and if its fur nothing
moro than a dog collar, you will ace one class
of Republicans take only thc one side, mid
every Democrat running the other wa . "faur

That is ?hat is the mtttor. Mr. Pillsbury is
un honest man. Mr. Pillsbury Will in my
judgment prove tabea bettet'man than tho
pejple of UuarlOolOU give him credit for hoing.
But, there is uot a man ni South Carolina whu
behoves that, in ever, respect, Ur. Pillsbury
bas the lirj. -class qualitic.itions for this oiuuo.
I do uot believe it. But I believe him to be a
g ?od, honest, well-meaning man. I ?io iiotbo
Uevo ho would stoop lo anything mean.
Tho unfortunate condition of thc city cer?
tainly required that either party, ni their no?
rn.nations, should have put forward their best
man. Tho city debt is about one-sixth ot all
tho taxable' property, the liko o'f which has
scarcely over been known belorc. I admit th.it
what I am now saying is quite irrelevant tu
tho point; I might bo simply content to
as-ert tho principle that majorities aie entitled
to be souled. But i was trying to show why it
was that Mr. Pillsbury bad not obtained his
seat, lt was because he had not the sympathy
of tho active business men of the City of
Charleston. Ho wa-? uut eouied to uo "fully
competent for tho office because bc was not a
business man. The eily bud tu pay tba public
debt. It bad beim fr..nug ns interest ?ill tho
time. But I will s-y Ins tu thu people of
Charleston, that if Mr. Pillsbury can do worse
thau they kavu d<?uo m days gone by bo wi.i
bo cutitied to a reward of merit, and a very
long mane at thar. Look at a li;tie eil \ liko
t iat owing a dibt o. six millions >f dollars.
Il Mr. Pillsbury can do Worse than i ii at itie v
will bo entitled to go up bili. There is not
a Democrat in ?South Carolina, nut a, man

in tho power ot' the Purnoo ra ie party to have
preventi d tho oieotioii of .Ur. Pd sbttry. They
had it in their power to elect snob a mau aa

nreuofteJit party eaid wo will take r.omnn
that is not dred ni tho wool a Democrat. Uno
speaker s.?id wc will have only u Democruiic
fl-ig and go down with that flag ii necessary,
and with drums bealing, or else wo will have
victory. Well, whou they got their flag, as all
sue : fools do. they got it somewhere with its
laii end off, ?nd it is now being lost in a law
suit wirb ouo who has beeu declared io Luve
received a majority vote.
Let me 6tute another oaso. The Slate a,m
vassnra cave certificates of election to Messrs.
Recd and Simpson, because they bad obtained
a majority voie. Ir. was ?teserted that that
vote waa obiained both by fraud and by vio?
lence. D d any mau ever hear i f a pauer in
South Carolina objecting to tho conduct and
decision uf the State canvassers bufa uso tho
Siiito canvassers gu vc lo thurn a ceniucito of
clcot ioii? Nono of them have said a word. But
there is wntro the bull has gored the Kcpubli
can ox. It is the old Jacksonian doctrine that
a majority vote entitles a party to his seat. The
Board of Aldermen hare declared all wo want
to know. Wo do not blame Clark for bis de?
claration. It was a magnanimous declaration.
Tis true he saiil they were not legal votes; but
he bas shown no proof.
