-Notwithstanding the adjournment of the Mo- '

Should McFarland be acquitted ho will -??iiut? (
proceedings to invalidate the Indiana divorc,. 0tt
the ground that it was obtained without any no- 1
tifica;?on being served on him. Mrs. Richardson is
consequently very anxious that he be convicted
and Ecnt to prison for life, but ls evidently prepar

m regard to Richardson's property, is turning it
into ready money in order to be able to hold on
to lt the more effectually. Thc Grecian-cut

sympathy towards Mrs. Calhoun. In au
editorial in the columns of the Indepen?
dent, Theodore is endeavoring, In a moral
way, of course, to incite the new and present
husband of the gushing letter-writer to shoot
Spencer, one of McFarland's counsel. This Chris?
tian editor, not satisfied with the quantity of
blood already spilled in this uurortunatc affair,
thirsts for a fresh victim. It is also rumored that
Mrs. McFarland is quite anxious to testify In fa?
vor of her slain seducer. Thc New York Sun, iu
commenting on her Introduction as a witness by
thc prosecution, says: "If the editor of the In?
dependent is auxlous to get at thc true and
honest sentiments of the community, let him pin
the name of his paper on thc front of his hat, aud
be about the courthouse when such an unnatural
and revolting scene ls enacted. The respect of

GENERAL LEE arrived in Charleston from

The Anti-Radical Prosramnic.
We print, in another column, an article
from the Anderson Intelligencer, in which
are recorded the earnest convictions of that
excellent journal, in regard to the political
programme unanimously advised by the late
conference of the Anti-Radical Tress. The
Intelligencer sustains, of course, the resolu?
tions of the Press Conference recognizing
the equal right of all citizens to vote and
hold public office: but it is decidedly opposed
to nominating a general ticket in opposition
to the Radical party.
What has been the effect, in the up-coun?
try, of the action of the Pres3 Conference,
we have no means of knowing. The Intel?
ligencer says that, so far as its information
extends, that action "has fallen uuheeded
"upon the ears of the colored people." This
may be the case in Anderson, but it is not
the case in the tide-water region, and if there
had been no public 6ign whatever that the
colored people were willing to co-operate
with the whites in the work of reform, we,
at least, should not be surprised or dis
couraged. The refusal of the Democracy
to recognize, without qualification, the
equal civil rights of all citizens did, un
doubtedly, lead the colored man to believe
that the white man was his enemy. No hair?
splitting, or special pleading, would con
vince the freedmen that the whites were
their friends, so long a3 the Party to which
those whites ostensibly belonged denounced
the laws which made thc colored man a citi
zen, and threatened to repeal those laws
upon the first convenient opportunity. Now,
the legal rights of the colored man are se?
cured to him by the Constitution of the Uni?
ted States, and the white people accept that
decision as final, meet the colored man on a
common ground as their political equal, and
recognize his privileges with the same frank?
ness and honesty with which they formerly
opposed them. Considering, then, that the
white people stood in the position of accord?
ing a tardy recognition of a very obvious
fact, why should it have been expected that
the colored people would leap at once into
thc political embraces of the whites? There
was no ground for such an expectation. All
that the Press Conference proposed to do
was to untte_utl thu whites" "in tt-gwiertti
nffirmation or recognition of the civil and
political equality of all citizens of the State,
and to invito a political alliance for the re?
demption and reformation of the State Gov?
ernment. And what has been the result ?
With astonishing unanimity the white peo?
ple of the Statu dp join in the recognition of
the legal rights of their colored fellow-citi?
zens, and do express a desire to band all good
men together in a movement whose aim
shall be, not the success of Democracy or
the subversion of Republicanism, but the
establishment of a stable, honest and frugal
government. Turning to the colored peo?
ple, we find that, in this region, they arc
ready to lend a willing ear to our statements,
and are anxious to hearken to the arguments
which prove the necessity of a change, and
which show that fraud and corruption iujnre
poor as well as rich, the black mau us well
as the white. But Rome was not built iu a
day, and we did not expect to overcome, iu
an instant, the sophistries of Radicalism
and tiie prejudices resultiug from years of
malicious misrepresentation. We believe
that the colored people will work heartily
with us wlicu convinced that we are thor?
oughly in earnest. And steady and patient
work and a just representation of evory class
will give them confidence, if we only perse?
vere. So far as the colored people are con?
cerned, we see no reason for discouragement.
But the Intelligencer thinks that to run an
opposition ticket will strengthen the efforts
of the Radical leaders, and cause tho colored
vote to be given, almost as a unit, in favor of
the Radical nominees. The reply to this,
?n our judgment, is plain and convincing.
Vnless we have organization and concert of
action, unless we have concentration of pur?
pose and harmony of intention, we cannot
by any possibility succeed. Add this organ?
ization, this harmony, this unity of action,
can only be had by running a general ticket
for Governor and Lieutenant-Governor
against the Radical nominees. Unless this
bc done oar strength will be frittered away ;
we shall be whipped in detail. Nor is this
all. We shall break np all organized oppo?
sition to Radicalism, encourage desertion,
and even drive our people over to tho Radi?
cal Party, there to stay, there to work, and
there to make its defeat impossible. Thou?
sands of white men will go bodily over to
Radicalism, unless we give them a Party
with which to work. They will attempt to
make Radicalism reputable, and, whether
they succeed or not, no Anti-Radical Party
could defeat them for teu or twenty years
to come. This is about the last thing which
the Intelligencer would desire.
We admit frankly that the one great thing
to strive for is a change in the State Legis?
lature; for a majority of respectable and
upright men iu that body could do much in
checking the Executive, however daring
md unscrupulous that officer might be. But
we say, emphatically, that the very courso
idvised by the Intelligencer for securing a
majority in the General Assembly is per?
fectly consistent with, and wonld be slrength
med by, an adoption of the policy of the
Press Conference. Wo cannot undertake to
decide, beforehand, what will be thc action
of the June Convention. We do hope and
^H?vo, however, that it will adopt a policj
which -vin have aU the streng arili un?ty
which can v? by m organized opposi
tiou to Radicalism, and will, at the same
time, leave every county perfectly free to do
the best that it can' for itself in the election
of members of the Legislature and county
officers. We do believe it necessary that
there should be opposition candidates for
Governor and Lieutenant-Governor; but we
Jo not think it necessary that there should
bc opposition tickets for each county. We
should prefer to allow each county, while
working for the State ticket, to do the best
it can for members of the Legislature and
county officers; and where it can be arranged
to have but one county ticket, such a ticket
as tho wholo county can support, a contest
would be a serious injury. This, at all
events, is thc policy we have advocated un?
der the name of the CITIZENS' REFORM move?
ment. The June Convention may not coun?
tenance that movement, or may prefer an?
other name. But we arc earnest in our con?
victions that a proper State ticket can suc?
ceed, and at the same time give to each
county ail the independence of action which
the Intelligencer and other journals desire.
