return that, old officer to his old quarters at
Charleston. But the South Carolina members

from North Carolina, eu tere-such an earnest t
protest against it that Grant has postponed t
the matter for further consideration. But if t

policy, I have no doubt but that ho will bo sent i

There are but two pronounced Radicals in tho t

Mr. Alexander T. Stewart waa never identified f
with the Radical party. H: acted with tho o
Philadelphia movement. General Cox was li
outspoken against tho extremo men of hts pw- t
ty, and openly opposed the negro suffrage v
movement in his own State. His nomination v
is not acceptable to tho Radical party I
of Ohio. Tho united effort on tho part t
of the opposition to Mr. Stewart to placo Mr. t
"Boutwell, ?^Massachusetts, who is recognised h
at? one of the Rad cal leaders in Congress, fur- o
trishes ground of^uspicion that tho extreme c
men of the party aro doterminotl to have a y
pronounced Radical and Protectionist at tho a
head of tho rreasury Department. Le:tdiii;r t
jtentlemen at Washington believe that in ordor t
.16 pWfierve the unity and harmouy of tho s
^Jty, the Secretary ot tho Treasury should be t
in accord with the nujonty in Congress. Mr. \
Stewart is not only regarded unsound on suf?
frage, bat on the tariff question. Heuce comes 1
the opposition." i
onada papers give some particulars ot 1
ihe shooting of Ensisn Whittaker, of the i
British army, by youog Cbai?ner, in Montreal, 1
on Wednesday or last week. Whittaker se- I
-daoed Miss Chaloner last August, after having t
first pat her under tho influence of chloroform. 1
A few weeks ago ba promised to marry ber to <
4WT? her from disgrace, but" subsequently re- ?
fused. Her father then went to a justice of
ihe peaco and instituted a suit against Whit?
taker for rape. The girl waa sent for. and her
imposition was ta!:en. While this waseroing
DU, tho brother enlered, and leaned for
thc tirst time of his sister's disgrace. Ho
immediately lett and armed himself with
x revolver, and learning that Ensign
Whittaker xvaa at the- Skating Kink, went
there ar.d Oreel a shot at bim, saying at thc
same time, "You know what thnt WHS for.''
The first sKot missed, and ^s thc officer was
nuking a rush towards him to seize thc re?
volver, he fited again, thc b.:ll entering the
temple. Chalmer was immediately arrested,
and now lies in jail. Naturally thc nff.nr has
caused great excitement, but thc almost unani?
mous verdict is that tito officer was served
right. Thc Cbaloner family are highly respect?
able, and tho son is not of a quarrels ?nie dis?
position, aud is but sixteen years ol ago. En?
sign Whittaker entered the Fifty-third Foot in
ISCo, aud is a fine-looking young mau of twen?
ty-two years. At last accounts ho was still
alive, but insensible. The biain oozes from
tho wound, and recovery is impossible.
FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 12, 1SG9.
1'he Election in the Fourth Congres?
At the general election held in the Fourth
Congressional District of South Carolina in
November last, the Hon. W. D. Simpson,
the Democratic candidate, was elected, de?
feating A. S. Wallace, the Radical candi?
date, by 4291 votes. At the same time, in
each of the three judicial disticts into which
the Fourth Congressional District is*divi?
ded, a County Solicitor was elected. In
each case the Democratic candidates were
successful, having about the same majority
which was given to Mr. Simpson.
The correspondence between the majori?
ties given in the counties for County Solic?
itor with the majorities given in the same
counties for Congressman, proved that there
was no fraud for the exclusive advantage
of Mr. Simpson. If there was fraud for
one there was fraud for all; but no objec?
tion whatever has been made to the County
Solicitors, who qualified without opposition
and are now discharging the duties of their
offices. And, in truth, thje interests of the
Radical candidates should have been ex?
cellently well protected. In each county
there were three Commissioners of Election,
who were appointed by Governor Scott,
whose Radicalism is not doubted; and these
Commissioners appointed three Managers
for each election precinct. Wherever it
wa9 practicable the majority of the mem?
bers of the Boards of Commissioners nnd
Mauogers were Radicals, so that the frier.ds
of the Radical candidate had every oppor- I
(unity of meeting on the spot any illegal or
fraudulent act on the side of the Demo?
cratic candidates. But no complaint or
protest wns made by any one. The Man?
agers made their reports to the Conwnis
aioners and the Commissioners to the State
Canvassers; and yet no word was said of
anything improper having taken place.
The State Canvassers-all, we believe, Re?
publicans-declared Mr. Simpson duly
elected, and furnished him'with a certifi?
cate of his election.
Then it was that Wallace, the defeated
Radical candidate, plucked up heart of grace
and announced his determination to contest
the election. ? vigorous attempt was made
to hunt up good strong evidence, and Wal?
lace published his grounds of protest. This
pretest dealt largely in generalities. It
iid discuss the ineligibility of Mr. Simpson
under the Fourteenth Constitutional amend?
ment, an ineligibility which is not doubtful,
as Mr. Simpson was a member of the State
Legislature before the war, and a lieuten?
ant-colonel in the Confederate army, and a
member of the Confederate Congress du?
ring the war. But, beyond this, the charges
are more vague accusations against the
people of the district than specific proofs
that Mr. Simpson was improperly eleoted.
Ihe friends of Mr. Simpson busied them?
selves in his defence, and are preparing
positivo evidonoe to rebut the charges of
the contestant. Mr. Simpson himself an?
swered, in a paper which is before us, the
statement made by Wallace.
Mr. Simpson reviews tho whole of thc
protest, disproving methodically and thor-1*
>ughly its every specification. In regard
.0 some particular instances of alleged
r&ud, Mr. Simpson says :
"As to thc matters embraced in charges
lumbered in contestant's protest from eight to
wenty-four, inclusive, in which it is alleged
hat lurg" quantities of arms were imported
nto Unica County and other couuties, lo be
isod to intimidate electors; that armed bodies
)f men patrolled said couuties; that threats of
riolence were made; that houses wore broken
)pon; that the colored velors were shot at
tnd driven from their homos; thflt said dec?
ors wore prevented from exercising tho clcc
iive franchise and especially from depositing
.heir votes for thc contestant; that aimed
?eu attended at thc precincts; that ballots
vere opened sod changed by tho friends Aid
>artisans of the undersigned; thai barrooms
vero kc?pt opon ou thc day of tho election;
hat the managers of election precincts, and
n certain counties, wore not sworn; '.osi tho
henel* and supporters of tho contestant were
ireveuted from roting on thc pretence that
heir names could not bo found un 'Jiu regis
ration books; that ballots cast lor oilier par?
ies than tito undersigned wore yet counted
or him; that persona who would roto th-j Dciu
icratic ticket au l for tho undersigned were al
jwed to vote whether registered orno:; ;hat
bo student ! of Lutheran College at Walhalla,
rhcthcr residents or not, were permuted to
ote; that all theso means weio resorted to
ty tho fien Is and partisans of tho under
iguod for tbe purpose ot illegally influencing
he election in belia!!' ot tho undersigned, and
iv these moms numbers of pe rs ms in etch
f saiit counties, who would have voted for tho
ontesiant, were Lojit away troni tito [oils an;'
irevontcdfrom casting their votes for him,
tut that numbers of illegal votes were scented
ry tho managers for the undersigned, som.1 oe
ticm being deposited by said managers thein
olves and by other purtles, who wore allowed
o act as managers, especially ut one of tho
urecincts at Uniou Courthouse
"The undersigned stales that ho has denied
laving any knowledge in re furo nco to these
rarious charges and all others therein era
naced, if any bc loft out iu tho above uiiu
neration; but in simply denying personal,
tnowledtro ho does not wish to lie understood
bat ho thereby makes an implied admission
hat said chargea may b3 true; on tho contrary,
'rom such information a* he ha's b-'on ablo tn
obtain since, the protest of the contestant was
?erved upon him, he fools authorized to say
that they are all fa'se and slanderous upon
tho people of tho soveral counties embraced
in thc faicl Fourth Congressional District and
upon tho manag ors who conducted thc election
on thc 3d day of N ;vombcr, A.D. 1868, and tho
undersigned denies the truth of said chaises,
ono and all, and he demands of tho contestant
thc i roof."
This proof will never he given: for not
only is it our conviction that Mr. Sitnpetn
was legally circled, aud can prove it before
tiny imp irtial tribunal, but a.lso that his
majority wcul l have been much larger but
for the intimidations practiced by thc
fr.ier.ds of Wa'luce, which gave that person
twelve or fifteen hundred colored volc9
which otherwise would not have been cast
at all, or would nave been cast rn the Dem?
Mr. Simpson also pays back Wallace in
his own coin, in regard to ineligibility; for
while he is uuble to take his seat until his
disabilities are removed, he may, in regard
to Wallace, find it necessary "to offer proof
"aB to the disabilities of the contestant un
"der the Four!eenlh Amendment, as to his
"accepting office in violation of the provis?
ions of that amendment; as to his encour?
aging acta of illegality and violence on
"the part of his friends and partisans to
"secure his elcctioD; as to fraudulent votes
"cast for bim, and other illegal acts by
"himself and supporters, to so overcome,
"control and manage the colored voters, in
"said Fourth Congressional District, so aB to
"compel them, if possible, to cast their votes
"en masse for him, without knowiug for
"whom they were voting, or understanding
"anything whatever as to the import of
We have called attention to some of the
leading facts of this important contest, not
more to show the solid ground upon which
rest the claims of Mr; Simpson, than to
urge the Democracy of Union, Ocon.ee,
Picken-, Greenville, Laurens, Spartanbur ,
York and Chester, to be diligent in procur?
ing what evidence may be required to dis?
prove every shallow assertion which Wal?
lace has ventured to make. This it is nec?
essary to do, even if it is a foregone con?
clusion on the part of Congress to refuse
Mr. Simpson his seat. We may not be able
to make the United States House of Repre?
sentatives act more fairly in our case than
it has done in tho^case of others; but it is
our dufy to accumulate proof, to gather to?
gether testimony, so that it may be made
evident to the whole country that Congress
is not rejecting our candidate because he is
illegally elected, but because he is a Demo?
crat, and for that reason alone. Whatever
the odds may be against us we must not
give up the fight; and if we persevere we
may yet see Mr. Simpson and Mr. Reed
take the seats in the Congress of the Uni?
ted States to which, by law, they are en?
Tbc A eiV Deal.
President Grant has changed the wholo
complexion of his Cabinet.
In the place of Mr. Washburne, who is
nominated as Minister to Franue, we have,
as Secretary of State, the lion. Hamilton
Fish, of New York. This is a change for
the better. Mr. Fish was a member of the
legislature of New York, his native State,
as early as 1837, and was in Congress from
1843 to 1845. He was elected Governor of
New York in 1848, and was United Stater
senator from 1851 to 1857. Mr. Fish is a
gentleman of acknowledged ability and
great personal integrity, and will be far
more at home in the State Department than
Mr. Washburne will be in the gilded salons
Th* Hon. George S. Boutwell, of Massa?
chusetts, nominated as Secretary of tho
Treasury in the place of Mr. Ste wart,.began
life as a farmer, and since 1842 has been
continuously in political life. He was Gov?
ernor of Massachusetts in 1851 and 1852,'
and was elected to Congress in 18G2. Mr.
Boutwell is one of the bitterest and ablest
Radicals in Congress. To him conciliation .
and compromise are meaningless words,
and his earnestness of character, intense
party spirit, and commanding talents have
enabled him to exert a gigantic in?
fluence upon the Radical members of the
House. Mr. Boutwell is undoubtedly a
master-mind, and may make an admirable
Secretary of the Treasury; but his appoint?
ment bodes no good lo the South.
Of General Rawlings, who cuooeeds Gene?
ral Schofield as Secretary of War, we only
know that he was chief of staff to General
Grant, and is now well rewarded for his
devotion to his old leader.
This is the "new deal." From it we
draw the inference that President Grant
has abandoned his idea of conducting tho
affairs of the country upou strict commer?
cial principles, and is preparing to abandon
himself unreservedly to thc embraces of the
party leaders. Absit omen !
THE ZEITU.NO, it is announced, has be?
come the property of its editor, Prof. Her- 1
man D. Meier, who contemptutes several
important improvements in the manage?
ment of that journal. After thc 1st of
April, it is tobe issued Irt-wc^kly, ou Sun?
days, Tuesdays and Thursdays. As it. will
then be the only Charleston paper publish
ed ou Sundiy, it will mlurnlly find its way
imo thc hands of mauy who havo not hortt
tofore been in thc habit of reading it. We
wish our contemporary abundant pros?
THE GESERAL ASSEMBLY can not adjourn
because the Committee on Ways and Means
will not report the Appropriation bill. Is
the committee hankering after the six dol
larper diem, or what ? Perhaps they intend
to revive the resolution introduced last ses
sion, and make the per dum perpetual. .
THE AP POI N TM EST bf General James Long?
street toa lucrative federal olliceaiNew
Orleans, which is announced iu our tele?
graph columns this morning, is one of thc
Bigus of th*, limes.
WHY SOT change the title of the?-"Milt
tia bill" and call it at once what we fear it
will prove to be, viz: "A bill to orgauize
civil war in South Carolina."
THERE is some talk of introducing a leg?
islative joint resolution requiring the Gov?
ernor to enforce the CharlestonElection act.
