SCANDALOUS BEHAVIOR OF CONGRESSMAN
Incendiary Speeches of Ute Abbeville
The Abbeville Press and Banner gives the ,
following particulars of the outrageous conduct
of "Congressman" H?ge, at Abbeville, on Satur- 1
day last, an account of which has already appear- ]
ed In these columns:
With flaunting banners waving before their 1
eyes, an excitable crowd of blacks pass luto the 1
courthouse, fl liing every nook and corner, so that j
further ingress and egress were equally Imposai- 1
ble. There were scarcely more than a dozes j
whites present Including our worthy sheriff, ^
clerk and county cierk. Mr. Doge ls the orator (
of the day, and harangues upon the labor ques- 1
tion. He tells the laborer that one-third of t
the crop is not enough for him. Captain J. N. t
Cochran, who is standing near the door, addresses s
a civil question to thc speaker-"Tell these color- 1
ed people what a 'nigger' ia worth in money- <
money wages being paid ia my section." H?ge *
evades the question, and appeals to the passions r
of his audience by denouncing the word "nigger" j
as a term of opprobrium. Captain Coch- t
ran disavows the use of the term in an offensive 1
sense; but Hogc refuses to hold any further col- >
loquy. Major Johnson, near by, says in an un- t
dertone, "why surely nigger means a black man." 1
Their "offence hath this extent, no more." Sal- t
livan (the late member elect) the chairman of the ?
meeting, orders their arrest, and immediately fol- 1
lowed a scene of the wildest confusion. Pande?
monium let loose-cries of "kill him, kill, kill
him," from an excited crowd convulsed with all
thc agonies of a causeless panic. All made for t
the door, some over the heads of their less for- 1
tunnte comrades, all except a very few (luclud- s
lng the orator of the day, whom a reflex current i
.anded safely behind the door of one of thejurv 2
rooms.) " ?
Messrs. Cochran, Johnson, Gray and Carter were 1
immediately arrested, (the two last though pre- 1
sent in the meeting had not opened their mouths.) 1
were arrested without warrant-were arrested, if 1
upon any pr?tent' 4 charge at all, for doing what 1
every citizen has a right to do-attending a popu- 5
lar meeting aud observing the rules of legitimate '
discussion. Their persons were violated and their 1
lives imperilled without thc shallow or justifica?
tion or excuse.
INFAMOUS TU KEATS OF MEMBKRS OF TIIK LEGISLA?
A Cokesbury letter says :
The law ls iguored and vengeance appealed to by
those claiming to be law-makers for Abbeville.
On last Monday, when the train arrived at
Hodges from Abbeville, Mr. Pcm GufH.11, recently c
elected to the Legislature, got out nf the cars, ac- e
companied by a squad ?r armed negroes, and es- r
sayed a speech somewhat to this effect: "1 Stand t
upon the soil where the Hon. B. F.Randolph poured \
out his lire's blood, and we intend to have re- 1
venge for it. The tlrst Republican killed In this
county every. leading Democrat shall be killed 1
and their houses burned down over them." This i
was apparently addressed to some dozen while r
men who were standing near. Here is au appeal t
to the passions of the ignorant colored people to 1
set aside law, and take matters imo their own 1
hands. This is thc counsel or a so-called law-ma- 1
ker. Will he be sustained by those in authority ir ^
The colored people, as a class, are misrepresented 1
by this fellow, for they are really better citizens 1
than he, and he certainly docs not pretend to t
represent the white people, lt seems to be a bid c
for thc votes of the colored people at the nexi 1
election, but. from all I can learn, he will fail to
get any respectable people of that class to sustain I
h.m. The other, Mr. Guinn, who claims the scat 1
or senator, to which he was not elected, sealed I
h:s devotion to tho fair sex by kissing two of 1 bein \
on the plat Torin just berore Hie train left. This, 1
however, is a matter or taste, and 1 am unable to 1
say which was most degraded by it, or which t
was most honored. t
THE LABOR CONVENTION.
Adoption of tile Platform.
As already stated in our special dispatches,
the Labor Convention reassembled in Columbia
A member from Orangeburg offered a resolu?
tion-which was laid upon the table, after much
discussion-that the following rates of wages Le
given to laborers for cultivating cotton and corn:
First class, $16; second. $12; third, $9 per month,
and the laborers s?mil receive in addition to the
above 3 pounds bacon per week, peck corn, quart
molasses,pln t salt, for Iiis board ; and if working for
a share of the crop, they shall receive one-half of
all the provision crop, and one-third of the cotton
raised upon thc farm. .Thc planters to furnish all
the farming utensils and snfllcient horse power to
carry on the farm.
Thc committee appointed to memorialize the
General Assembly submitted the following:
To the Honorable the Senate and House of Repre?
sentatives of the stale of South carolina:
The laborers of the State of South Carolina, in
Convention assembled, beg leave to memorialize
your honorable body to furnish an appropriate
and effectual remedy for some of the grievances
which the agricultural laborer now suffers at the
hands of the large majority of ris employers.
We believe that there is no natural antagonism
between the interests of the planter and those of
the laborer; bnt on the contrary, that fair dealing
and a rigid performance of duty on the part of
each, will secure the prosperity of both.
We are aware that many of the wrongs to which
laborers are snhjected are beyond remedy by
legislative enactments, but must Hud their re?
dress in the organized efforts of the laborers them?
selves, acting unitedly within thc lines of the law,
with a wise regard to the equitable claims of capi?
tal, and thc inalienable rights of labor.
Yet, while vour honorable body are restricted
by constitutional limitations from fixing thc rate
of wages, lt ls within the scope of your authority
to insure more fully than at present, their speedy
and certain collection, and also by suitable laws,
to confer upoH the laborer a greater power of
self-protection than he now possesses.
We, therefore, pray that your honorable body
will provide by statute
1. That the claim or the agricultural laborer for
wages due shall operate as a preferred lien upon
the land that he works, and that the planter or
owner of said land shall not sell or alienate tue
same, until such claim ls satisfied.
2. That the Governor shall appoint a discreet and
proper person tn each county who shall be desig?
nated as "commissioner of contracts." Such per?
sons shall be charged with the duty of examining
and attesting all contracts between the planter
and laborer, and shall act as advisory counsel of
the laborer upon all questions that may arise un?
der his contract. He shall make a quarterly re?
port to the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics, set?
ting forth the number of laborers In his county,
how employed.and the rate of wages paid, and the
names of planters and laborers who may have vio?
lated their contracts, all of which shall be laid be?
fore the General Assembly, at thc commencement
of each session thereof, and shall be published for
3. That the suits of all classes of laborers and
employees for wages due them shall have prece
dence on the calendras of thc courts, over all
other civil suits, and shall bc heard at the first
term of the court after the declaration of the
plaintiff in thc same shall have been filed.
4. That the Governor shall bc authorized to ap?
point, in encb county, an officer whose duty it
shall be to make up the list of jurors, and super?
intend the drawing of thc same, in order that the
laboring classes ir.'iy have a fair repre
sentation on the juries, a privilege which
ls practically denied them in the rural dis?
tricts, under the operation of the present system.
C. That when lands are sold nuder execution,
the sheriff shall divide them as nearly as practica
ble, into tracts notexeceding fifty acres each, in
order that the small capitalists may be enable to
We bebeve that this measure will greatly faclll
tate thc acquisition or land by the landless, and
that it can be rendered legally practicable by pro
vidlng that the decree of- sale, in each case, shall
declare that only so much of the debtor's land, or
the subdivisions thereof, shall be sold as may be
necessary to satisfy thc Judgment
C. That ali due bills given by planters to la
borers shall specify in terras the special considera
tlon for which the same shall have been given,
and shall be transferable, at the option of the
holder, and shall operate as a lien upon the crop
and land whenever such dac bill ls given, in lieu
of payment for agricultural labor
T. That nine hours shall be a lawful day's wort
for all mechanics and laborers engaged lu manu
factures or m any business requiring skilled labor.
8. Abolish all taxes on sales of cotton and rice,
by either State or municipal authorities.
Yoar memorialists are satisfied that the enact?
ment of the laws herein prayed for wi? he of vast
benefit to the agricultural lab?rete and wlU
greatly tend to advance the industrial recon?
struction of the entire State.
And your memorialists will ever pray, Ac.

-In a letter irom Macon, Georgia, to his paper,
John W. Forney tells of u New England man
whose largc-heartcdness would do honor to a
British philanthropist. Mr. Denny saw a letter in
a newspaper describing the poverty of Colonel
Robert Allston, of Georgia, once a wealthy man,
and sent him a thousand dollars, begging him to
accept it as a means of restoring his shattered
fortunes. "Won by this unexpected kindness,
the Colonel replied as frankly, telling his sirauger
friend that one thousand dollars would be of little
use, but that If he had live he would-sturt the
world afresh in good heart, and "Would honestly
repay the loan. By return of mail Mr. Denny for?
warded the additional four thousand. The next
step was an invitation of Colonel Allston, asking
bis Boston friend to his home in Georgia ; and he
came, iu the scventy-tlftti year or his age, with
his wife, to see thc ex-Confederate whose honest
story had reached his heart, and whose honest
eirorts were devoted to the restoration of the
Union be had bravely fought to divide.''
-Thc marriages of the English Duko of Aber?
corn^ daughters affords a significant proof of
what beauty does fora family. While five of
these young ladies-by no means liberally dower?
ed by their father-says Hie New York Evening
Post, are already married to wealthy peers, and a
sixth ls engaged to the heir of a duke, the eight
[laughters of a marquis are without husbands.
Since thc days of the celebrated Gunnings, no
family Ims ln this respect been so famous as the
Hamiltons. Indeed, the latterare thc more re?
markable of Ute two; for while there were but two
beautiful Gunnings, there are seven Ladies Hamil?
ton, and all of them are beauties. One is the wife
of the Earl of Dalkeith, the heir of Bold Buccleuch ;
others arc the wive3 of the Earls of Lickiield,
Durham aud Mount Edgcombe; another is the
affianced bride of thc eldest son of the Duke of
Marlboro1, whiLst the youngest was married a
few weeks ago to the young Marquis of Lans?
downe. This last wedding excited in the fashion?
able and political world a vast deal of interest;
especially, perhaps, because, while the youthful
bridegroom Ls thc head of a famous Whig house,
his beautiful bride is the daughter of thc most
aristocratic of Tories.
-What a geographical wonder a womai of
fashion is. There is her dress, which, perhaps,
the silk worms of Japan or Lomoardy have fur?
nished the material for, woven by the looms of
Genoa and Lyons; it is supported upon linings
or cotton from the fields in Egypt, Georgia, Brazil,
or Dharwar; her gloves nsed once to roam sport?
ively upon the Savoy mountains, if they did not
serve as natural clothes for rats; the feathers of
her hat or bonnet formerly flew abont the palm
groves of Sumatra and the Malay Archipelago,
or traversed Arabian lands; the diamond hunt,
crs of Australia and South Africa, and Persian
oysters beds have furnished precious stones and
pearls for her jewelry; the bones of Arctic whales
sustain her embonpoint; her furs were torn from
otter or mink in Alaska or British America, or the
sable in Russia, or perhaps she wears a shawl
from India; and lastly, her chignon may have
once adorned a head long since pillowed on a
"lap of earth."
-Disendowment has been forced on the Aus?
tralian Province of Vittoria in rather a remark?
able way. Something like an impartial endow?
ment of the religious sentiment was attempted
there, when, in 1S54, an annual sum of $350,000 in
gold was set aside "for buildings for public wor?
ship, and for ministers of religion," to be applied
according to the relative numbers of each de?
nomination. So long as the grant was divided
among thc various Christian sects, there were
but few dissentions. Presently thc Jews came
forward to claim their jouit and lawful share,
which lt was Impossible to deny them. Finally,
however, the Chinese immigration gave rise to a
demand for a grant on behalf of the Joss-houses
of the Celestials. This was mere than the peo?
ple conld tolerate, so, having resolved to draw
the line at Buddhism, they came to the inevitable
conclusion of discontinuing concurrent endow?
ment altogether. A resolution has accordingly
been come to by the Colonial Parliament to allot
a gradually deereaslng amount for a few years
for purposes of religion, and then finally to abol?
ish the item altogether.
-The mysterious and irresistible impulse which
drives people to moralizing and theorizing upon
eubjeets of which they have little or no practical
knowledge, has a pointed illustration In Mr. Rich?
ard Grant White's essay on the morals and man?
ners of Journalism, In the Galaxy magazine for
December. Along with some fanciful and imprac?
ticable notions, Mr. White advances a good many
sound and valuable ideas, and In thc main his
views seem to be on their face reasonable and
just. And yet he could himself no more establish
and conduct such a journal as he demands than
he could scull a cargo of sugar across the Atlantic
ocean in a kitchen cullender. Only those whose
days and nights arc given to the complex and ex?
acting duties of journalism can understaad how
almost Impossible lt is to bring the result of their
never-ending efforts up to anything near their
own conceptions of what a newspaper ought to
be; and, taking all the circumstances of the case
Into account, thc wonder ls, nut that the average
journals of the present day should not bc better,
but that they should bc as good as they actually
are. Undertaking to make a newspaper and sit?
ting at a quiet customhouse desk and telling how
it ought to be made aro two widely different occu?
-"II there be aa elysium on earth," lt ls-ac- |
cording to an eloquent correspondent who has
been travelling ia the Caucasus-on the hanks of
the Phasls, two days'Journey from Tims. "The
river," he says, "wanders through an exuberance
of tropical shrubs and grasses, and tinted trees,
laurels and rhododendrons. Species of palm and
wild fruit trees of every kind grow almost rank.
And there are birds of all sorts; besides the na?
tive pheasant, woodcocks, wild ducks, snipes and
colored birds abound. This ls thc bank garden,
but away from it stretch the mountains, folding
back one above the other to a distance of thirty
or forty miles-first the wooded range, then the
less distinct blue, and tben the snow peaks.
Over all was a glow of the softest light, and to?
ward evening, when that snow was steeped in
pink, and we passed the canoes of the lovely
Gourri, thc most beautiful tribe of the Caucasus',
and heard them chant their evening hymn, lt was
not wonderful that I thought my horse must
have stepped over the precipice and gent me from
sleep to fairyland. And yet no ene comes herc 1"
Tiflls, he prophesies, will become the most fash?
ionable tourist headquarters in the world. The
steamers on the Black Sea, he d?clares, beat the
Cunard; thc cabins and saloons are much wider
and prettier; thc latter actually has a floor of pret?
ty brick tiles.
-There is nothing In language more grotesque
and ludicrous than thc maaner In which some
ancient words, phrases and mottoes are trans?
posed into familiar conversation. This is pecu?
liarly shown in thc names of some old Inns in
England. In the times of Cromwell, when suth
heroes as "God-be-pralsed Barubones," and
"Flght-the-good-tlght White," and "Faint-uot
Hewitt," drank their ale, an inn was named the
"Clod Encompauscth Us." But when the nation
became profane again, the words were corrupted
to thc "Goat and Compasses," and the picture of
a goat and compass wasused as a sign. Tiere
was a house near Oxford which was once called
thc "Plume x>f Feathers," from the crest of the
Prince of Wales, but afterwards became popularly
known as thc "Phun and Feathers." The Inscrip?
tion "Caton P?lele" gave thc name the "Cat and
Fiddle," and "La rose ties Quatre Saisons," be?
came the "Rose of the Quarter Sessions." The
"Satyr and Bacchanals" became the "Satan and
Bag o' Nails;" the "COOtr L>ore-' (Golden Heart,)
thc "Queer Door;" the "St. Catherine's Wheel"
thc "Cat and Wheel;" the "Boulogne Gate" (com?
memorating \\\c taking of Boulogne by Henry
VIII,) thc "Bull and Gate;" the "Peg and Wassail
Bowl" the "Pig and Whistle;" the "George Can?
ning" the "George and Cannon;" and the "Battle
Axe" the "Axe aud Bottle."
-Count dc Cham bord, who ls now thc head of
thc French house of Bourbon, ami therefore a
man of great prominence in the political world,
inhabits a plain chateau at Kronsdorf. He re?
ceives visitors wltli exquisite courtesy, and con?
verses freely upon subjects of national interest.
Thc Count is of medium height, with a pointed
chestnut beard and graceful manners. Nothing
is required of persons who have the honor or
being received at Frohsdorf except the deference
to which Count de Chambord is entitled by the
place he occupies in history. A few minutes be?
fore dinner, Count de Chambord himself goes for
Countess de Chambord, to whom he presents his
guests. Thc other persons staying at thc chateau
meet in the drawing-room. Wheu the dinner
bell rings, thc company go into the dining-room.
The master or the house takes his seat at the mid?
dle or thc table, with Countess de Chambord on
hts right, and young Count, de Bardi, his godson,
on his lort. The other persons take their ?eats at
the place assigned them. Count oe Chambord
begins a conversation which daes not cease to
flow until codee is served. After dinner, thc con?
versation continues in the dining-room, full of
dash and freedom, around a large table where,
free from all etiquette, the guests are placed at
hazard. About 10 o'clock, Countess dc Chambord
retires, and the Count, holding out his hand to
his guests, says to them: "Aurevoir herc-and
