. POR REFORM.
CHARLESTON INVITES HER SISTER COUN?
TIES TO JOIN THE MOVEMENT.
APPOINTMENT OP DELEGATES TO
THE JUSTE CON"VECITION.
STIRRING SPEECHES JSY WHITE AND
A Grand Maas Meeting of the friendo of Re?
trenchment and Reform was held at thc Hiber?
nian Hall last night, In accordance with the nu
merouslj signed call published in the dally pa?
cers on Friday morning last. There was no mis?
understanding tbe language of tho call. It was
a movement of the whole people lu the cause or
an honest and able government. There was no
distinction of class or condition, no talking
about dead Issues or a mournful past. For
this reason the call struck the public ear, and
men who had never before taken any part in
politics, quite thoughtful citizens, determined
that they would, for tht s once, attend a Mass
Meeting and give countenance by their presence
to the noble movement of All Honest Men against
Roguery and Theft. Early yesterday morning lt
was rumored that orders had been received from
Columbia to gag tbe meeting at all hazards, and
this tidings, Oasbhfg through the city, caused the
people to shake off their apa;by and turn out lu
As soon as che gates were opened the crowd
began to flock into the hall. They came in tens
and fifties and hundreds, and by the time that
the proceedings began the hall was packed and
crammed with palpitating Reformers. Nor was
the crowd satisfied with filling the hall. Eager
listeners stood on the broad stairways, thronged
the corridors, and *cjre scattered over the steps
outside the building. Hundreds wh?> came a little
late found no standing room Inside the building
and went away disconsolate. *
For the flrat time in Charleston the wealth and
the mechanical skill, and tie muscular strength,
and the honest intelligence of the white people of
South Carolina, were joined to the force and ener?
gy aid influence of our colored fellow-cftizens.
Republicans and Democrats, natives and adopt?
ed citizens, white men and black men. sate to?
gether in mass meeting, considering for the good,
notofelassor party, but of the whole people
The platform wits broad enough to hold all honest
ny, and handsomely was lt filled last night
Prominent among those who were present
were several notorious agitators, who did their
level best to excite a disturbance. While one of
the colored speakers waa addressing the meeting,
these partisans or Scott began to hiss and stamp;
hut the firmness or the speaker, and the energetic
action of the chair, added to the unmistakable
determination of the vast majority of the meeting
to see Fairplay, brought the Scott faction to their
senses. They did not again dare to Interfere with
The stage, as well as the body or the hall, was
crowded. There sate some of our staunokest citi?
zens, the vice-presidents and secretaries, both
white and colored, showing by their conduot their
hearty acquiescence In the purpose or the gather?
ing. Indeed, the meaning or the xrhole Meeting
was a union of all honest mea, Irrespective of
class, color or party, for the parp?se of obtaining
forsooth Carolina some relief from the myriad
troubles we are new called on to bear.
At about half-past 8 o'clock, Mr. H. B. Olney
called the meeting to order, and moved that Cap?
tain George H. Walter take the chair. This mo?
tion was unanimously adopted. Mr. Olney then
moved that the meeting be further organized by

spoke as follows:
SPSKCH OF GEORGS H. WALTER, ESQ.
My FeXtow-CUizens-U ever there was a time in
the history of South Carolina when tho best ener?
gies of the people should be put forth in the con?
test* about to be w aged-a contest of law, order
and good government against the corruption,
Sronlgacy and extravagance which now run riot
i the land, from the mountains to the seaboard-^
that time is the present. [Applause.]
If there ever was a period whea the energy of
every citizen should be employed in stamping
with .the mark of Indignation tho course of those
who now, control the State, that period is the pre?
sent. The hour has come when every man, how?
ever humble, must work-work for bis own salva?
tion-work for the interest of his fellow-men-'
work for the welfare of tbe State.
I gratefully accept the position you have as?
signed me to-night, and pledge my hearty and
cordial co-operation in carrying this great move?
ment forward to a successful termination. [Ap
Fellow-cltlzens, this is not the hour to talk
about parties. The avalanche ls upon ns. lt
threatens to eneulf the people, and he who sits
tamtfy down and rolds his arms, deserves to be
overwhelmed and sunk in oblivion. Talk about
party when the water ls on the deck, or criticise
with smile or sneer those who are at the pumps In
this hour of danger-why, my friends, lt is worse
than rolly ; it ls criminal. [Applause.]
I call upon you, therefore, to assist us in or?
ganizing the great movement to be Inaugurated
to-night. Remember that the State is In danger;
the contest ls upon us, and we cannot stop to
scrutinize the mere uniform of men. If they be
true-ir they be faithful-ir they be honest-ir
they be engaged In fighting the common enemy
let us cling to them like brothers, and together as
one phalanx move forward In this great and glo?
To you, my colored rellow-cltlzens, I have a lew
words to say. This Issue ls presented to you as
lt is to us. Like ourselves you are taxpayers and
laborers.. Yonr earnings are filched and
wrenched from you to support those who riot lu
luxury, and we ask yon to come forward and
help us in tho work of reform. What your
party affiliations may be we care not. We look
upon you simply In the light or fellow-cltlzens,
Interested like ourselves m the welfare of the
people, and believe that you "ecognlze
the Importance of this movement, not In
Its political aspects, but simply as a struggle
between right and wrong, trutk and falsehood,
honesty and corruption. When the fight ls over
lt will be time enough to talk about other Issues.
Kow, the State ls in danger: let us save the State:
SGreat cheering.] And unless we do save the
Rate, there will be rnln, ruin, ruin, to you and to
me. Let us, then, move forward together, ave,
shoulder to shoulder, In this great cause, stopping
only to feel the touch of the elbow as we bend our
common purposes to a common achievement.
So far as I am concerned, I know no party affil?
iation, and whoever may be the man chosen at
Columbia to carry our Gubernatorial standard, I
care not whether he be a Republican or a Demo?
crat, If he be a true, an honest man, he Bhall have
my conscientious and hearty support. [Immense
Itgankyou for the patience with which you
baveJwtened to me, and declare this meeting or?
ganized and readx for business. .

Mr. ChaU~nwn and Gentlemen-I am glad th
the mist and clouds which, like a funeral pall, ht
Overhung this old Commonwealth of ours for
many years, are at last to be dispelled, and th
the sun of prosperity may once more shine In
pristine glory upon a redeemed State. I reel, s
that this night 1B to be memorable
In our history; for before me are the hi

colored citizen-all classes, conditions and pr

upon a platform sufficiently broad, to hold the
all, to devise means to rid us of the onerous bu

The State or South Carolina after the war had

nearly fifteen millions, and increasing. Wh:
people can stand such an Increase of public Hi

a chief magistrate who will carry out the law
there made, and then, with a union or hearts am

achievement ol' a prosperity, financial and pout I

speak, ls offered to every species or vlllany; cr:m
Inals are let loose upon the community, and a to

been a Radical, Whig or Democrat, or any other
name which might have been chosen; but the
matter for consideration now ls, shall the evils of
which we complain be remedied-shall there be
an abatement or the excessive taxation, which ls
crushing ont our very existence, and must finally
end In driving us rrom this spot that we all love
so well? These are the subjects which shonld claim
and receive our attention, and the bending ol our
efforts to the selection or those who shaU give us
aa honest government. The large assemblage
here congregated ls evidence that the people or

To the workingmen or this community, and
the entire State or South Carolina, this sub?

a burdensome taxation the labor or the country
will bo forced to seek another channel; and that

Commonwealth, will be directed to the advance?
