-It is now aa ascertained fact that General
SutterfleW has resigned his position as Assis
tant Treasurer of the United States at New
York, in order, as is stated, to simplify the
question of an investigation into the charges
made by certain parties of his complicity in
the late gold pool. The New York Herald says:
"General Butterfield had requested a military
court of taqniry, but the Secretary of the
Treasury having assigned Instead the treasury
solicitor to make the investigation, we pre
j sume that General Butterfield resolved to cut
the matter short by a resignation. Thus re?
lieved of his civil office, his request, as an
officer of the army, for a military court can
hardly be denied him, inasmuch as his reputa,
tion in the army is at stake." A Washington
dispatch says : ' "It appears that the resigna?
tion of General Butterfield, Assistant Treasurer,
was the resi?t of Information conveyed to him
officially, though in the form or a confiden?
tial communication, that both the President and
Secretary Boutwell desired that General But?
terfield withdraw, and accompanied with the
verbal intimation that ii the resignation was
not immediately forthcoming, a removal and
appointment would take place instanter." The
New York Post, in a strong article on the as?
sistant treasurer, alludes to the charges against
him of speculation in stocks, and says: "Grant?
ing that General Butterfield had nothing to do
witfi the gold ring, yet we have not anywhere
seen the charge denied that h? speculated in
stocks while he was sub-treasurer." The Post
ls opposed toa court-martial, and says: "The
expedient of a trial by court-martial looks sus?
picious to the public, and is irregular, and
smacks too much of military despotism to bc
relished by a freo people. The civil officers of
a free State ought not tobe able thus to pro?
tect themselves behind a court of military offi?
cers; lt is a bad precedent which General But?
terfield seeks to set; one which may lead in
time to the gravest and most dangerous abus?
es." It is intimated that the whole matter of
the gold conspiracy will be investigated by
Congress when lt next meets.
Persecution for Opinion's Sake.
The assertion is broadly made that Mr.
Stoddard was discharged from work aboard
of the bark Wyman because be was a Radical :
and the longshoremen are told, with the vio?
lence which characterizes the typical dema?
gogue, that, in remaining on strike until
Mr. Stoddard is reinstated, they are fight?
ing against proscription, and vindicating
the right of every man to have an opinion
and a soul of his own. With the reasons
which caused the dismissal of Mr. Stoddard
we have at present nqthing to do. We ad?
vocate now, and have always advocated, the
fullee t freedom of thought, speech and act.
And'we carry out that principle to the end.
We apply it to rich as to poor, to em?
ployer as to workingman; to Dives in the
banquet-hall as to Lazarus at our gates.
We ?o not proclaim that the Radical shall
do as he may please, and tbat the democrat
sholl only do as the Radical pleases. As
long as they do not disturb the public peace
or encroach upon the rights of others, we
demand, for all conditions of men, full and
free liberty of word and deed. . And it is be?
cause we apply this principle to all classes
and parties, and not to one class or party,
that we. assert the right of the shipping
agents in this city to emplpy whom they
will-white man or negro, Democrat or Re?
publican. This is why we condemn the con?
duct of the longshoremen who are endeavor-'
lng to compel the employment of one par?
ticular man or set of men.
In no place where Radicalism is, supreme
can there be true liberty. The Radical
party carry out, to the fullest extent, the
doctrine: To the victors, tba spoils. They
care nothing for the character of the govern?
ment or the ability of candidates. All that
they insist on is that "working Republicans"
only shall hold every public office. We need
not point to the policy of the President and
Cabinet to prove this statement There is
>metbing nearer borne than the proscrib?
ing of Democrats in the North and West and
?(East We can afford to let pass the recent
order for the removal from office in Texas of
all the opponents of bitter-end Radicalism.
Take this State as an example. On every
side there are honest, capable and experi?
enced men who have been bundled neck and
crop out of office, and their places filled by
boobies or knaves. And why? Because the
office-holders were not Radicals. This has
been the policy in every county and city and
hamlet in South Carolina. Only a few
weeks, ago the Radical Union League de?
manded of Mayor Pillsbury the removal of
all the Conservative policemen in the city
police force. - The Mayor bowed down and
obeyed. Twenty or more steady and trust?
worthy policemen were discharged, for no
other reason than that they were not Radi?
cals. This, indeed, is proscription. This is
South Carolina Radicalism. More than this,
we are told that Mr. Stoddard himself dis?
charged, last fall, one man, if not more, be?
cause he would not vote the Radical ticket.
And now these people strut and bluster and
call themselves the champions of free
Whatever of proscription there may be
among the respectable people of Charleston
has been hammered into them by Radical
principle and practice. White men and
colored men have been employed without
distinction, and so have Democrats and Re?
publicans. If, in any one case, there bas
been a change of conduct it is due to that
Radical proscription which in this State has
driven from place well nigh ali t hat is respect?
able, and bas filled the highest and lowest
offices with men whose only qualification is
the fervor of their political faith, and their
undying hostility to all that is true and
THE Sumter Watchman says that a num?
ber of merchants, seeing how difficult it
is to avoid buying stolen produce, have
abandoned entirely the trade in seed cotton.
The Watchman denounces the whole nefa?
rious, traffic, and winds up with the declara?
tion that it "must ceasfe." The Darlington
Democrat hopes that the suggestion of THE
CHAKLBSTOX NEWS may .be taken up by all
the papers in the State, irrespective of party,
and all the honest people will petition the
General Assembly for thc passage of a bill
restricting the purchase and sale or produce
likely to have been stolen. The Democrat
says: "The loss of what ?3 stolen of
"one trop, severe as it may bc, is not so
'ruinous as the^ discouragement to "indus
"try and labor which this wholesale rob
"bery occasions. If the Legislature will
"givens such a law, our. magistrates aud
"township officers would then act in concert
"throughout the State in punishing such
"marauders, and the people would feel that
"that they had some protection of law. We
"fee! assured that such a petition would be
"signed by four-fifths of the voters of Dar
The Charleston Strike. /
Within the last few weeks we hare had a
remarkable and heretofore unprecedented
outcropping of "strikes" in Charleston. The
longshoremen, the ship carpenters, the house
painters, the tailors, and we know not what
other fractional part of our toiling human
I ity, have suspended their work and deman?
ded higher wages. Without pretending to
enter into the merits of the controversy, and
without even calling the attention of those
whom it concerns to thc simple principle
that a proper workman's union is defensive
and not offensive, we must say that we think
the present conflict is most unreasonable.
The strike ordinarily is the resort of the im?
poverished workman against the thriving
proprietor. In the present instance it has
been precipitated by knavish politicians.
It is an attack by labor upon the proprietor
I just when he needs every favorable circum?
stance for the re-establishment of a business
on which, not his support only, but that of
his bands depends.
So long1 as the world endures, we suppose,
the contest between labor and capital must
go on, and with the same varying fortunes
as those which attend the competitions of
the bulls and bears of New York. The man
of means will naturally endeavor to secure as
large a return for his investments and his
risks and his losses as he can ; and the man
of muscle will seek to appropriate the larg?
est proportional share of the profits which
he has toiled to secure.
In a normal state of society we should'
have no occasion to deprecate such a con?
flict We might trust in thc operation of
the laws of political economy, as other com?
munities do, for the regulation of wages.
This interest has a method of adjusting itself,
[ 'ii not in accordance with the highest prin?
ciples, at least in such a way as contributes
to the general prosperity and to tne wealth ol
the State. The conflict is unequal, for usually
the employer has some means to fall back
upon, while the workman cannot afford to re?
main idle for a week or a month without incur?
ring the danger qf starvation. This is one of
the safeguards against the interruption of
those general and useful enterprises in which
the capital of a country is invested. But if,
as sometimes happens, the laborer triumphs
and secures a larger proportion of wagoe
than would properly and naturally accrue to
his work, his success invites competition
among his own class. The supply soon be?
comes greater than the demand, and as the
number of workmen increases they under?
bid* each other to obtain work. Thus capi?
tal recovers its lost ground, the labor-rate'is
.resumed, and the ringleaders of the strike
are obliged to leave the country for want of
employment!. Such has been thc experi?
ence of the English operatives. The vari?
ous combinations, often tumultuous and even
violent, which have sought to fix an arti?
ficial scale of prices, have proved but a
mere eddy upon the broad, deep stream of
the national prosperity. In all the depart?
ments of industry an inexorable law, the
law of supply and demand, has'' prevailed
like a decree of fate.
Mr. Buckle calls attention to tbe fact that
the Revolution in England which culminated
and collapsed in the Protectorate of Crom?
well, was more of an industrial than a po?
litical movement. The like remark may be
made in reference to the French Revolution.
It is a suggestive circumstance that each of
these national labor-strikes resulted, in a
personal government, which crippled lubor
and exiled liberty itself.
In Charleston a strike just now is, as we
have intimated, most unfortunate. As Adam
Smith has abundantly shown, an increase of
wages is absolutely dependent upon, and
must be in proportion to, the inorease of
funds from which the payment is to bo
drawn. Where the revenues of a business
and the stock invested in it aro limited, the
wages of the labor employed must of neces?
sity be lower than in tho wealthy establish?
ments of a flourishing community. To sug?
gest New York prices as a standard for
Charleston is simply preposterous. We are
j just beginning to live; capital is not abun?
dant; the profits of trade are uncertain;
men of the highest accomplishment aud char?
acter are reduced to salaries which satisfy
the necessaries of life, but afford little more.
The season is not auspicious for a strike.
And if it were, might not Captain Stoddard
and his obsequious cohorts of longshoremen
prudently and modestly wait-until their
betters were served ?
There were, we doubt not, exceptional
cases of grievance represented in the recent
movement-cases where wages were not re?
munerative and wh?re the industry needed
special recognition, because it required the
labor of the brain as well as the hand. It
was an unfortunate circumstance, however,
that the most inferior kind of labor was the
most clamorous in its demands and the
most riotous in its demonstrations; that it
is a Radical League with a Radical leader
and a Radical ward who have presumed,
in the name of the laboring class, to demand
the control of the wharves and shipping of
Charleston. It will not take long to settle
