'.Tho Nation" and South Carolina Po
The State officials aud their understrappei
in their vehement abuse of thc CITIZE?
PARTY, address themselves chiefly to tl
double declaration that no change is neerl
in thc State administration, and that tl
new movement is only an ingenious plan f
thrusting back the colored people into
least political slavery.
No other line of defence was open to tl
party in power. An admission that refor
in high places and retrenchment every wher
I are indispensable to the prosperity of tl
State-would cut the ground from under tl
feet of tkeir party. To acknowledge tin
thc white people are sincere in their publ
pledge of equal civil and political rights I
their colored fellow-citizens-would be I
hasten the inevitable doom of South Can
lina Radicalism. AH that was left the co:
rupt band was to raise the old cry of Rebi
Democracy, and vow that a coterie of irrest
lute journalists were trying to whip into sui
jectiou the intelligent masses, as well as tl)
master minds of the State. But the iniquil
otis follies which a clique of adventurer
have deliberately and persistently committed
are notorious outside of South Carolina, nfl
what a Radical official here has not the hon
03ty or the courage to say, is spoken bravel;
ami manfully by 77<e Nation- the able, riii;
nilled and philosophical head of America]
The Kation, in its issue of Saturday last
uses these words : ' 'That liier? is need enougl
'.that somehow South Carolina should get :
"new government is not doubted. There i
"no dispute among observers of its perform
"anees, that the Legislature which lias jusl
"been adjourned was one of the most cor rup
"assemblages that ever legislated for a Stale,
"and one of the most contemptible in poinl
"of ability." This is no frothy stutemeut
so-called, of a Democratic press, but thc
calm and unbiassed declaration of the rep?
resentative Republican newspaper. And il
is the very need that "somehow South Caro
"lina should got a new government" whict
unitci Republican and Democrat, whiteman
and colored man, in thc groat cause or Re?
generation, Retrenchment and Reform.
The saino paper, Thc Nation, discusses
Lue action of the Press Conference and thc
broad platform of the CITIZENS' PARTY. It
"The so-called anti-Radical editors of
"South Carolina have set a precedent which
"mnny of ti3 may live to see generally fol?
lowed, by assembling in conference to dc
"cide upon the line of political policy which
"they shall unite in urging upon the voters
"of thc Staio. Hitherto tho 'Conservative'
"papers of South Carolina have not been
"speaking with entirely accordant voices;
"manifest as it lifts been for some years that
"thc negro absolutely must bc made a friend,
"there was still left, herc and there, a bitter
"negro-hater who counselled open war to
"thc end-'a square light on a white man's
"'platform'-until, peradventure, a national
"success for thc Democratic party should
"give the ?Conservatives' ?i chanco to make
"over their reconstructed State. In thc con?
f?rence, however, more politic views pre?
vailed, and the platform adored is all Hint
"anybody has any right to ask for. The
"attendance of editors, though uumsricully
"small, is said to have represented the fee!
"ings ?ind opinions of nearly nil the coun?
ties in the State They began by passing a
"resolution to tho effect that 'the conference
14 'recognized the legal right of nil the cili
" 'zens, white or colored, to sullVuge,' and
"proceeded to pass another to the effect that
"there ought to be 'no limitation of the right
11 *to hold oltice except such limitations as
" 'are imposed by persoual character and
" 'fitness.' A convention is to be held which
"will organize a party pledged to these dog
"mas, and acting in the hope of sotting a
"government which shall afford 'some de
"'gree of security, prosperity and good
"'government' These proceedings seem
"promising, and we are not disinclined to
"believe that they are taken in good faith.
"South Carolina events have lo^ic, whether
"or not there is much sense and logic in the
"South Carolina Democrats, and how other
"conclusions could have been reached it is
"not ea*}' to see."
Surely this expression of opinion is more
valuable and more trustworthy thuu thc
penny-a-line vituperation of vena! politi?
cians! The Nation luis always been, and is
now, the organ of the responsible ami re?
spectable Republicans of the Northern States.
It fought manfully for the political emanci?
pation of the freedmen, and would don its
armor to-morrow were their rights threat?
ened or their privileges endangered. But it
treats its old opponents as an honest foo
man should, and witli no grudging or carp?
ing spirit says fraukly that "the platform
"adopted is all that anybody has any right
"to ask for." The Nation has no fear of
Democratic success or Radical defeat. It
sees that South Carolina has need of a new
government; it declares that the platform
gives all that anybody can properly ask for;
it Bpeaks of these proceedings as promising,
and i3 "not disinclined to believe that they
"are taken In good faith."
Well, indeed, may The Nation say that
"South Carolina events have logic." That
hard and inflexible logic forced the public
mind to its present conclusions. A long and
bitter experience taught the people that they
must look to themselves for relief. They
sought their natural allies, and fiad them in
the colored people whose whole future, for
good or for evil, is linked with that of the
white American. And tho ally is greeted,
notas a serf, but as a political equal, for
such in fact he i3. No test is applied to one
class that is not applied to the other. Merit
and citizenship are the only qualifications,
a.id the laborers and mechanics are assured
that a movement for a new government
means a better protection and higher wages
for labor, and a more rapid developmcntof thc
hidden wealth of the State. At thc same time
the illiterate must be made to know that ono
of the first aims of thc new government will
be to carry out vigorously a thorough scheme
of free ?ducation. AU classes and all con?
ditions are invited to band together for the
general benefit; for on the success of the
CITIZENS' PARTY depends, for many years to
come, the peace and welfare of tho State.
With the fall elections well over, and an hon?
est and impartial State Government, South
Carolina would stride forward and all her
people taste of the riches of her joy. But
two years more of extravagance and mis?
rule would crush all our budding hopes, and
drive capital, intelligence and worth far from
our shores. _
Greeley on thc South and ?UT Carpet
Thc New York Tribune says: "If the
'South can simply go on as she ls going, for
'ten years longer, she will be richer and
"more prosperous than she ever yet has
.been." It speaks of "the Ku-Klux as one
"of her scourges," and of the "carpet-bag?
gers" as another. It defines the latter
precisely as we do. They are not the hon?
est Northern settlers who come among us to
make their homes and follow their legitimate
business-but, in the language of tho Tri?
bune, the carpet-baggers are "those who
"went South in quest of office, or power or
"plunder of some kind, and who have let
"nothing stand in the way of their greed or
"THE cry is still they come." The Ben
nettsville Journal heartily endorses the reso?
lutions of the Press Conference and the plat?
form of the CITIZENS' PARTY. The Winns
boro' New, which had opposed the June
Convention, now frankly says that Fairfield
shall be represented.
