Thc Columbus Sun says: "The Atlanta mud?
dle has cleared np. The result is just what we
have expected and predicted. Bullock and
his partisans hold both bnnches of the Legis?
lature by strong and decided majorities-ma?
jorities which will be increased. The skir

What is Thought of thc Pol i timi
Situation. \ /
A CHANGE.WE M CST HAVE.
[From the Newbery Herald.]
It is conceded very generally that it is neces?
sary to secure a government different from
that which we at ptesent have. Hie Radical
ring which squanders the substance of the
people must be broken, and to accomplish
this is the aim and object of all Hie good ?md
true men. Industrial development and po?
litical activity-these aro and must be Hie
watchwords to success. A change in rulers,
and a change for the better is what we want,
and is what we must have, and our people
must wake up aud appreciate the responsibili?
ties of the time. We believe that thc fight can
be won if the people so will it, and will I urn
their attention a lillie to what is of more vital
interest, than any oilier quest MI tillich can
now spring up. We cannot believe that nil is
lost, and we do have a strong faith that lhere
will come a triumph over ftc folly and fanati?
cism which now paraly7.es the country, politi?
cally, socially and commercially. All that we
have to do is to do our part iii this great war?
fare, and have faith. Next fall, at any cost, we
must have an honest government Fifteen
counties out of the thirty-one, one year ago,
showed what could be done, and now with
trroarer lights, larger experience, eau we,hot
hope for greater results? Surely. Let un Myhl

THE COXING ELECTIONS. \ I
[From Hie Columbia CJuanlian.p-'
Controlling as they do Hie patronage and
power of the Stale Government, with their
emissaries, in the shape ol' thc ' constabulary
police force," distributed throughout the coun?
try to guard their interests, and. by fomenting
discord, neutralize the efforts being made for
Hie establishment of more friendly relations
beUwju the two co-existing races, the carpel
bag party are doubtless gloating over Hie pros?
pect of a continuation lu their career ol' fraud
anti viliany by obtaining another lease ol'
power at the coming elections.
Shall they have it ? We hope and believe
not. Tile Demvcracy, anU-Rauicalists, or by
whatever name may lie called those who main?
tain honesty in Office, economy in public ex?
penditure, equal rights, low taxes and decen?
tralization, will enter the field under tuon
hopeful auspices than Ute? knee ever been able
lo do since lite tear. The issue will no longer
be black man or white man (that sole prop ol'
Radicalism in Carolina.) The question of race
should and will disappear from view when Hie
welfare of a common conni ry is ut stake.
Reckless squandering of the 'public treasury
and consequent excessive taxation will, iii
their baneful effects upon the industrial pros?
perity of the Slate, "make no discrimination
on account ol'race, color or previous condi?
tion." All alike will be swallowed up in Hie
nuclstrom of Radical ruin, towards which the
trood old ship of State is rapidly approaching.

for dissension" between thc races. On the

[From the Columbia Guardian.]
Manifestly thc vulnerable point of the Repu
Hean party in South Carolina is thc corni,
character of the greater pat t of the official
who represent the party. It is hore that tl
opposition must strike ; and, striking her
there is ample hope of victory. Our citizen
black as well as wh'tc. have had enough i
ofllcal rascality, oppressive taxation and ban
faced prostitution of power; and they are bi
ginning lo see it. As soon as they do see i
this mammoth fraud, called Radical gOWl
ment, has counted ils last days. As soo
as the poor laborer linds that sdi Hi
voting and freedom goes to him an
all the money goes to his imported lav
makers, he will begin to consider where t
cast his voie. This consideration has nevi
yet entered into the colored man's mind ; bi
as soon as he sees thal the fruits of all his toi
that used lo go to his owner, are going in e>
actly the same way to his carpet-bag master!
he will begin to see that he is not yet reah/.ln
the best fruits of his freedom. The lime fu
him lo see this is rapidly coming. A shot
time more of land commissions, and codifica
tions, and labor conventions, ami heavy faxe.?
will show him that his prorrnt huzzas an
votes conk! be more profitably given to hi
natural allies and co-laborers-the nutiv
whites of Hie State-to'to have an equal int?r?t
icith him in making the Slate prosperous, am
in making thc taxes as light as possible.
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.
[From the Greenville Enterprise]
Thc constitution nnd position of this Stat
are now fixed. The press and public opinloi
cando little or nothing to change thc tunda
menial laws established; but they may sf rivi
to do something to intluence the internal al
fairs of thc State. We think too little alten
tention has been bestowed upon our local ao<
State interests, and therefore, for the present
it would be wise to agitate party less and ti
discuss more the particular almira of thc State
We can say nothing to affect the great partie:
In the North, Democratic or Republican
When the next general election approaches, ii
will be a proper time to determine on tin
course to be pursued.
So far as the members of the Legislature an
concerned, we should feel disposed to dlscrl
initiate between those of Hie Republican partj
who have shown proper regard and respect foi
the interest ol'lhc State iii resisting ll! lack!
npon the treasury and reckless expenditures
and who have advocated those laws that un
intended for thc good of the people, without
respect lo party or race, and those who havi
shown themselves to bc mere spiteful parti
sans and the advocates of schemes lo belled!
the few at ihe expense of thc many. We can
never applaud or approve Radical principles
.?rd policy; bat, in refusing to do this, wc
think it specially Important now to look to thc
local interests of mir Stale and (he Immediate
section where our lot is east. AL present thc
railroad interests of this section demand vigi?
lance and energy on the part ?d'the citizens.
TUE COMING CAMPAIGN.
i ^[Fj-om thc Clieraw Democrat.]
TITETJIIA?M.ESTON NEWS has sounded the first
note on (he bugle, which is to gather the De?
mocracy ol'South Carolina, for Hie political
conflict in the lall; and whether we are as con?
fident of success as our brethren of the press
all about us seem to be. or not, it. is yet the
part ol' wisdom and of patriotism to consider
the suggestions which are made, anil prepare
for an earnest effort to cast oil' Hie now domi?
nant parly. All that we value in Hie prese:;!,
and all we eau hope for in the future, defends
upon Hie issue of a wise and harmonious action
on the part ol'the good and true men ol'the
State, and we have one great element ol suc?
cess to start out. with in the conviction which
must have taken hold upon every candid mind,
that the men and measures now in the ascen?
dancy are hurrying us on to certain and spee?
'Whether such a plat form will secure usa
majority of votes or not, it certainly is the true
ground upon which all good citizens should
stand, that this State must be delivered from
the control of those who care nothing for ils
honor or its prosperity, but are managing Ils
affairs to promote their own selfish ends; and
that while its government should be r?gulai ed
by the wisest policy, it should sdso be con?
ducted upon the principles ol'si rici and impar?
tial justice lo all classes of persons over whom
it is established. Xo fr?? Carolinian cri>ec%
or has ever desired^ to deprive a single juraon in
the State of any ?loliticu! right he now leyuUy
enjoys, livery intelligent, patriot recognizes
vested rights, and will seek lo protect each
oilier in the proper exercise ol them, and une
ol'Hie very surest means of guaranteeing these
rights, isto place the government which grants
them under control ol'intelligent and patriotic
citizens who themselves have an interest ia
We agree, therefore, with THE NEWS, that
the very first doctrine to be laid down by the
Democracy is "a bold, straight forward und
manly opposition to the ruling party/' an un?
compromising rejection of its measures, and
then a sincere and persistent advocacy of jus?
tice to all, and a faithful, honest and economi?
cal administration. We do not know that, any?
thing else is or can lie necessary, 'flus in?
cludes all that any good mau of any class can
desire, and miicl* more than any have hoped
for under the present rule.
It is time that witli some such declaration of
our objects and purposes, the Democratic par?
ty should begin a more thorough organization,
and infuse luto its ranks a great deal more
energy and resolution than heretofore. We
may learn a great deal from our opponents in
the way of giving efficiency to our clubs and
other societies, and it is time to begin the
work. Men who really believe thc cause to be
a good one. should work for it heartily. They
may be mistaken in supposing that we are not
strong enough yet to throw oil" the present
jilling party, and others who think differently
may be right, lt is worth trying at all events*.
It cannot be done without au effort. Let the or?
ganization be complete at once, and let there
' bc concert ami uniformity of action throughout
THE CAUSE OF OUR OPPOSITION.
[From thc Union Times.]
Thc great evil under which wc have suffered
for thc past. Uvo years, has not been because
our officials have been Republican, but because
they were Immoral, incompetent and illiterate.
The opposition to Scott, Neaglo, Corbin, and
others, has not been because of their affiliation
with thc party of progress; it has been kept
alive by greater causes than this. Our imme?
diate representatives in the Legislature offend
us because of thc r gross ignorance and
incompetency, and ?none Instance by his pre?
vious life of lawlessness; not only because of
their republicanism. In times past, we labored
to defeat Congressional reconstruction as ini?
quitous; but our own selected arbiter has de?
cided against us. Our last political plank as a
practical issue was then broken. We must
now, if sensible, cast around us for upright,
educated officials, and unite Hie honest of all
parties with us. It ic Ul not bc a third party;
I it will bc no party at all. It will be simplv a
i combination of good citizens, Irrespective*of
party, formed In an emergency. That emer?
gency is the corruption and ignorance ot Hie
officials of one party, and thc lack of practical
State issues in the other-in short, a party
without a platform.

TUE JJ A UR E'S S RAILROAD.
A ? st h cr Small Job. Afoot.
Thc Laurensville Herald throwsTsome light
upon Hie taurens Railroad squabble, in which
the Radical officials are figuring. Waterman,
who is not known in Laurens, is the brother
in-law of Governor Scott, the same person who
went to work with pick and spade on thc
Slump House Tunnel to keep the Blue Ridge
contractors from forfeiting their bargain, and
the Identical individual who assured lils inti?
mate friends that Robert (K. Scott) had South
Carolina in a sling. The Herald says:
Ai previously announced, the above road
and all the properly of the corporation has
been ordered to be sold. When the order of
sale originally was made by Judge T. 0. P.
Vernon, thc naming of a receiver was left for
a future time, with the understanding that
counsel representing thc various parties to the
pleadings should be consulted. Now it appears
thal, on thc rx parte applicalion of D. II. Cham?
berlain, Attorney-General, representing the
Slate, an order lias been signed by Judge Ver?
non, appointing one George W. Waterman the
receiver, and requiring him to euler Into bond.
The road ls ordered to be sold on the 30th of
Waterman has filed his bond witli the clerk
of the court for this county in tlie sum of
$80,000, with R. K. Scott, Phineas M. Frazee
and Joseph Crews as his sureties. The execu?
tion of Mi? iinnd hy these parties ls sworn to
oeiore I). II. Chamberlain, Tnxarg ruol\c, a.
C. Tims lt appears that Mr. Chamberlain rep?
resents, in Iiis own person, the highest legal
office of the Stale, and at the same time ouc
of the most diminutive of legal departments
that of notary public-not noUmj for any par?
ticular county, however, but for tlie entire
State of South Carolina. This is surely a big
commission for a notary.
Waterman is not known here, but it is be?
lieved that he ls a capet-bagger and closely
associated with R. K. Scott. Scott's name fol?
lows on the bond, and his name on an ?80,000
bond may save the Slate and parties concern?
ed harmless. This remains to be seen, how?
ever. Frazee is not known; Joseph Crews
holds no property and pays no taxes, except
on his poll-at least this was the case not long
Hitherto in similar cases it had been com?
mon law and Invariable custom tor the clerk of
thc court lo approve all bonds required in le?
gal proceedings. In this Instance, thc bond is
filed with the following endorsement:
"1 approve the form ami execution of the with?
in bund, aaa sureties thereto.
T. O. P. VEltXON",
Judije Seventh Circuit."
This unusual course was no doubt taken in
view ol' the fact that thc clerk of thc court for
Laurens is a very prudent, honest man, and
the parties in Interest apprehended that he
would have the bond beyond all doubt, before
filing It witli Iiis approval.
The sale of this road is a job of a few thou?
sands, and Scott ,fc Co. must necessarily re?
ceive the commissions and stealings appertain?
ing to Hie office of salesman and receiver.
Tlie receiver will have the election ol' an auc?
tioneer, and thus Hie road becomes necessa?
rily thc prey of the Scott party.
the laurens Railroad is a district and Stale
institution, and the receiver certainly should
have been selected from citizens of the State.
Messrs. Hayiie, of Charleston, McGowan, of
Abbeville, Sullivan and Simpson Simpson, of
Laurens, represent the various parlies lo the
proceeding, and they most assuredly should
have been consulted in the choice of Hie party
lo be receiver, while we are assured Hutt such
has not been the case. 'J he whole thing smells
strongly of Radical highway robbery.
Has ?t. K. Scott any tangible property in
South Carolina? Has U.K. Scott any visible
property in South Carolina, saveh-carpct-bag;
anything that a sheriff can find, in case Water?
man vamouscs with thc proceeds ol' this big
Did not R. K. Scott, through Joseph Crews,
Iiis agent, purchase some ol' Hie rolling stock
of this company at a recent sale ? Is the said
Scott not really a parly in the matter in litiga?
tion, and has not Judge Vernon admitted a
parly litigant to bc surety fora receiver who
should be disinterested and independent of
all parties interested, in the event of the pend?
Should not a bond, made payable to-,
Clerk of Court of Laurens County, be approv?
ed by said clerk ? May not the attorneys who
have not been consulted ask for additional
surety hy Hie receiver ? Who can Uley ask. as
Hie Circuit Judge is estopped by his original
jurisdiction in approving the bond in the first
Instance ? Does lt not look like sharp practice
on the part of Chamberlain, Waterman, Scott
& Co., to get. their bond Hied with the clerk in
the shape approved as aforesaid, with Hie view
to claim hereafter that Hie act ol' filing was
virtual approval 7

INTERESTING REMINISCENCES OF THE GREAT
His Personal, Social and Political
Mr. C. Reemclln ls writing for thc Cincinnati
Commercial a series of articles, entitled the
"Reminiscences of Moses Dawson," from which
we take the following interesting passages re?
lating to the personal, social and political lean?
ings of John C. Calhoun :
A friend confronted us the other day with
the inquiry whether wc had read all that re?
lated to the difficulty between Jackson and
Calhoun, and especially that part la which
Mrs. Eaton figured, and, on our answering in
the affirmative, he asked:
"Did General Jackson and Mrs. Eaton real?
uNo, they did not really." .
"How, really ?"
. "Why, your really."
"Oh ! I understand."
"You do ? Well then allow me to say that
your improper query rests on totally erroneous
"how so ?"
"One false conception is that which Carlisle
points ont in his life of Frederick the Great as
to that King's relation to his wife, which you
may read for yourself; and the second is, that
it is untrue that the unfortunate quarrel be?
tween Calhoun and Jackson originated in an
attempt made by Jackson to force Mrs. Eaton
on certain society In Washington. He again
and again informed all concerned, that social
Intercourse was a matter of which each had a
right to ludgc for himself, and that he would
In no wise attempt to control IL"
TUB REAL CAUSE OF CALHOUN'S SOURNESS.
Even the most superficial observer ot Ameri?
can politics might know, that with our public
men questions as to social intercourse were
usually secondary to political aspirations, and
Mr. Calhoun formed no exception?
He disliked Eaton for preferring Van Buren
to himself for President, and Mrs. Calhoun's
dislike of Mrs. Eaton followed that ot her hus?
band, and not the reverse. Jackson's Cabinet
was, as cabinets in republics are too often, the
focus of movements for the succession. Ing?
ham, Branch and Berrlcn were Calhoun men.
while Eaton, Barry and Van Buren himself
were Van Buren men. As soon as Calhoun
and his friends knew, or thought they knew,
that Jackson Inclined to the little Dutchman,
there was flax for a political conflagration, ana
Mrs. Eaton happened to bc thc burning match
that set lt on tire, and that's all there is of lt.
A WOMlN TOO MUCH IX WASHINGTON*.
Wc expressed our regret that Mrs. Jackson's
death deprived lier consort ol that wise coun?
sel which a public man can only get from a
good wife, but we were careful not to assert
thal every wife should go with her husband to
Wasalngton. In fact, we hold that very few
women are suited to such places. Most of
them exceed both thc measure and appropriate
sphere of advice. Some, also, have manners
and habits which increase the difficulties In
their husband's way. The White House pre?
supposes, however, a Presidential household
duringa continued residence of four years.
The best head ol* such a household is a lady
like Mrs. Washington; but, unfortunately, that
model woman stands, as "Mrs. President,"
almost solitary and alone.
Mr. Calhoun had his wife and daughters
with him at Washington ; for a residence at
thc capital had become second nature to him
and his family. Calhoun was perhaps Ihc
purest politician of that period in his princi?
ples as to family life ; but that purity came to
the wrong market when lt went to Washing?
ton. Calhoun was too great a moral rigorist
in polit ics, aud topping lt off with social exclu?
siveness made him disagreeable to many. Mrs.
Calhoun and daughters were Southern ladles,
of c* *>]'?-' Hint Utooinwo MOIH* rt a ll mor? ill
suited to a society such as our political me?
tropolis must necessarily draw around itself.
They revolted from vulgarity and cherished re?
finement ; and while they would, ns denizens
of the White House and rulers of the social
lone in the upper circles, have exercised a
good influence, yet, as they had to move as
equals In a promiscuous crowd, their desiring
to constitute a society ol their own enhanced
the many incongruities that existed between
Calhoun and the world around him. They
should have submitted to the public as they
found lt or staid at home.
THE AMERICAN CATO.
Mr. Calhoun might have learned from the
history of his great Roman prototype that Cen?
sors aro not likely to be favorites among poli?
ticians. Their place If anywhere among the
public stat ions of our Imperial people, is Tn the
Senate. One State may, for reasons of its
own. stand by such a man, but never our
whole people. Our Catos must, therefore,
have no Presidential aspirations; their power
Hes in bringing the Srates to their support.
Had Mr. Calhoun never wished to be Presi?
dent, all his life would have been a suacess.
The very fundamental idea of Slates rights is
an intelligent faith (hat the States are to
American politics what mother earth was to
the giant Anttcuft, viz : the perennial, rein?
vigorating force. But this force none can
exercise with full effect who seek the
suffrages ol' the whole Union. His Presiden?
tial candidacy weakened Calhoun in this one
section, as it, too, had aspirants, and he should
have seen that his power was great enough to
make others President, but not himself. To
exercise this power well he needed an uncloud?
ed vision, and this ii- could not have while he
was a candidate himself. He misapprehended
Van Buren fur that reason-the very man who
had the head and heart that would have aided
Calhoun. Van Buren and Calhoun would have
completed each other If they had been friends.
The New Yorker would then have added full
commercial liberty to the sectional free trade
of the South Carolinians.
CALHOUN'S TREATMENT OF VAN BOREN.
A single glance at the conduct of these men
in 1831-2 must prove the preceding observa?
tions. These two men should have co-operat?
ed. And why did tiley not? Because they
were rivals. Take from Calhoun his Presiden?
tial ambition, and how different he would have
stood to Vau Buren ! As a competitor, Mr.
Calhoun misjudged him. He wanted him out
of Jackson's Cabinet. He voted against him as
Minister to England, and opposed first hts elec?
tion to the Viee-Preslde.-cy, and afterward
lo the Presidency. And all for what ? Be?
cause, with tile false Presidential squint
in his eye, he saw an .intriguer and an
insincere Republican in Mr. Van Buren,
and he never detected his mistake until 1837,
when, on frankly and honorably calling on
Van Buren as President, he saw for the first
time a statesman, lo whom he should always
have been a friend. And we, who have just
passed through a careful examination of all
Hie facts In Hie premises, must say Van Buren
was, throughout, a high-toned gentleman; not
a word nor a line shows intrigue or bad faith
in kim. Vau Buren was all right; Calhoun all
wrong. The Northern man was In this case
superior to the Southern man.
VAN BCRKN'S a ESK; NATION.
When Vau Buren left the State Department
in 1831, he wrote a letter to Jackson, which
exhibited his wisdom in a high degree. He
makes ii a point, i hal ihc cabinets of our Presi?
dents should not be the arena for subsequent
Presidential st rife. Madison was in Jefferson's,
Monroe in .Madison's cabinet, but not as rivals
to anybody. They were the accepted succes?
sors of the Presidents whom they served. In
Mourne's cabinet there were three Presidential
candidates-Crawford, Calhoun and Adams
and they weakened it. This fact Mr. Van
Duren recognized, and the moment he discov?
ered that Jackson's cabinet was divided on the
succession, he perceived its injurious effects
mid promptly resigned. It was the truest act
ol friendship ever performed in America, and
Jackson appreciated it. Mr. Calhoun under?
stood it entirely, and so did niuc-ienths of the

Kept heaving to and fro.

Tell her, her mother hovered near,
To watch her calm repose.
I come, sweet voices call,
Strange glory round me gleams.

I waken from my dreams.
Four years were hardly yet complete.
Since she, before the pastor, vowed,
That she would be a true help-meet,
Who now ls in her shroud.
