is a Carolinian by birth, and distinguished.
? throughout the South for his eloquence. The
Presbyterian pulpits are generally very well
supported here, but Dr. Palmer's advent would
be warmly welcomed by a host of iriends."
-A Washington letter ol the 12th Instant
says: "The San Domingo commissioners are
expected.in Washington by the 25th instant,
. but jt ls very evident.that Congress does not
desire to continue the session to await their
arrival, though it is not Improbable that the
President will ask the Senate to remain in ses?
sion to act on a treaty, provided the commis?
sioners have negotiated one. The statement
iii a prominent administration paper that the.
annexation project ls considered dead, does
not find much approval in executive quarters,
where its success ls regarded as even more
probable than was the removal a week ago of
Mr. Sumner from the chairmanship or-the for?
eign relations committee. The friends of the
scheme boast with great confidence - that the
commission will be unanimous, and that they
will be sustained by nearly every person who'
went out wi th the expedition, thus securing
outside of those officials a lair and Impartial
endorsement. The principal opposition is ex?
pected lrom Messrs. Schurz and Sumner, who
are arming themselves, constantly with facts
and figures. As heretofore frequently stated,
tbe policy ot annexation by joint resolution
was long since abandoned, as it; is manifest
that it could no? pasa -the House. ? treaty,
therefore, which requires two-thirds of the
Senate to ratlly, wllfoe the precess."
-The President ls reported as in high glee
at bis victory over Senator Sumner, and his
military tarally are chuckling at what t hey
style the humlliatlen of Mr. Sumner belcre the
very eyes, of the Britten lion whose tall he BO '
recently twisted. It is the glow ot the first
boura ofter the combat, before he feels the .
wounds, and a different mood must follow.
. All exoept the little baud ol flatterers about
tbe throne make no hesitation iu forecasting
rds defeat and that or his party, while other
troubles beside the purposed impeachment*
by Mr. Sumner crowd upon him. There is
that West Point affair, in wb ch the House has
enacted that a prince of the blood must be
tried by court mariifd.* The President refuses
to appoint tbe court of inquiry demanded by
the act of Congress, and is indignant at the in?
sult pat upon bis family. Commissioner Wil?
son, of the land office, tpo, does not submit to
removal without telling w-hat he knows; and it
must be another thorn In tbe President's side
to hear it charged, on such good authority,
that tho reason or the removal ot a faithful
officer was that he failed to approve of a land?,
grabbing scheme of the President's father.
General Grant will have little time to enjoy, the
triumph over-Mr. Sumner amid his gathering
perplexities, for he Is rapidly becoming an ob?
ject of pity rather than indignation.
-The tru? cause ot the deposition - of Sum?
ner Is given by the Washington Patriot and
the correspondent of the New York Evening
Post, as follows: It is known that Mr. Sum?
ner took the most advanced position in regard
to the Alabama claims and our differences
with England. The administration adopted
this policy, add Motley was sent to carry lt
out. Then came a change of purpose, Motley's
recall, the secret negotiations, with Great
Britain, and the appointment ol the Joint High
Commission on a very different basis from
that supported by Mr. Sumner, and to which
be did not conceal his opposition.' His pres?
ence at the head of the committee on loreign
relations was not only a standing rebuke
to this new Boheme, but it was a posi?
tive obstacle to its success before the
s?SateTand nearly two months ago Slr Edward
Thornton expressed to Secretary Fish doubts
as to the administration being able to get such
a treaty -as the. High Commissioners might
agree upon ratified by the United States
Senate so long as Senator Sumner remained* at J
the head of the foreign relations committee,
and entertained such views as 'expressed in
his speech against the Reverdy Johnson
treaty. The matter being discussed, and the
1 President consulted, the British officers were
Informed thit their powerful and'obnoxious
opponent, Mr. Sumner, would be removed
from the position of honor he had held
so long, and that by this act they Would
see that the administration abandonedthe
ground faked by him when he influenced
the rejection of the Reverdy Johnson treaty.
A foreign minister and 'friend of Sumner's,
hearing of this, warned him of lt, but he paid
little heed, and was soon alter taken ill. While
oonfined to his bed, the previously arranged
stories were started that he had prepared a
bitter speech against the President, which was
wholly untrue, tho design being to prepare the
country for his removal on the ground of ne?
cessity to the success or our f >relgn policy.
His Hostility to the San Domingo Job, doubt?
less, was another cause for his removal, as
well as the jealousy of Morton, Conkllng ?nd
others, who contd not brook his lead.
Tile Fkll of Sumner.
p Charles Sumner is dethroned. After re?
presenting for twenty years in the-Coked
I States Senate ail the peculiar "ism*' of
which New England is th? soil ami Cost?n
j the s?ed ground,'be has come to grief at the
I hands of the man lie helped to power,
During this long period, us the mouth-piece
i of Massachusetts, he attained an eminence
in tue Republican, party, and an influence
which enabled bim to command men and
measures with an authority little short of |
despotic sway. In character, aa intellectual
cynic ; a species > of pedantic Ben Butler ;
crafty [without' being bold; cruel without
being courageous; scholarly without being
original; apolitical schemer whose states?
manship scarcely lookecf beyond the mo?
ment. Sumner sought in an unlucky hour ;
to rule Grant 'as he bad ruled the Senate.
Relying on bia poweras a New Englander,
and as the exponent of the ideas that have
been dominant in the North hod West for
the past ten years, he issued from bis coun- I i
eil chamber, aa Chairman.of the Committee '1
OD Foreign Affairs, pronunciamentos which
practically declared war on the Administra?
tion. He bas stood in the way of the settle?
ment of the Alabama claims; he soug'ht to
disturb the peaceful relations .existing be?
tween England and the United States, and j
was an obstacle to the acquisition of Sun (
Domingo-the favorite scheme of the Presi- i
dent. Aggressive until he became "a thom t
"in tfle flesh," the policy of- the Adminis- c
tratiou demanded his removal from tbe im- 1
portant position ba occupied.
How it was effected is a matter Of familiar ^
record. In a party caucus, by a vote of 26 to t
2L, his decapitation' was determined upon, (
and the Magnus Apollo of New England t
Radicalism was forthwith unceremoniously c
ejected from the chairmanship of the foreign c
affairs committee to make room for Came- s
ron, the servile tool of the Administration, r
the railroad monopolisai the protective tanti !
advocate, and the representative ' of lire 1
vilest traits of American politics.
Mr. Sumner iras been 'brought to the (
block' by bis party. It matters not that the r
Presldent demanded his-head ki a charger; j
the party is the executioner. The caucus l
wbrk' wus'the work of the party. It matters' i
not that the most eminent and able leaders '
of the parly, Logan,' the two Murrilla, 1
Schurz, Sherman, Trambull and Wilson, op
posed an exeoution which was, really, a ^
punishment for independent action; the
mediocre element of? the party overpowered rj
them, and carried their point. Chand- e
1er and Morton marshalled the majority <
at the bidding of the President, t
and nearly all the scalawags and car? t
pet-bag senators from the Son th?, 1
whom Mr. Sumner had so laboriously assist",
ed into their seals, helped to strip him af
his honors. When New England comes to
complain of this treatment of her favorite [?
statesman, she will have the mortification of -t
reflecting that Pool, of North Carolina;
Sawyer,- cf South Carolina;- Ames, of Missis?
sippi; Kellogg and West, of Louisiana;
Flanagan, of Texas; Osborne, of Florida,
uud Brownlow,.of Tennessee, the creatures | .
of her own policy of reconstruction, were the
servile instruments by which the deed waa
The Republicap party can no longer claim '1
to be the .representative of independent
thought amt action. It dares to strike down
its most conspicuous and able leader for
presuming to think and act for himself on a
question that does not affect Hie declared
policy of the party, and it will strike down
ils next ablest lenders whenever they dure to
commit a similar offence. Schurz and Sum?
ner have been degraded; Trumbull and
Wilson may follow, to-morrow, and, in tho
end, there may be nothing left of the party
but ita most worthless element, led by the
strong will of the occupant of the White J J
.When Hogut's ?tall Oat," ?ic. r
The great split in the Republican party e
is briuging out a torrent of honest opinion c
on men and things that is all the more over- .
whelming because it hna been pent np so p
long. Radical journals are'-speaking ont all o
over the country, and giving us a new idea F
of their appreciation of the character of che e
President and his friends. The Springfield '
Republican accuses President Grant of de- \
sorting the principles on which he was elect c
id, and cbargea the present quarrei oniim
md his,^vfU^^i?^?olicy.,, His a&ninistration
jas been "no minore than respectable," -and
ils owr? partan it ?as "caused more grief
??nd ar&iety iyhan gratificatioq." To sum
jp the -.paraphrased " denonciations^of " Ibe
Republican, General Grant is arrogant, dis
iourteous, peevishly malicious-and despotic.
With regard to certain prominent members
jf the party, whom-we have before seen held
ap as models of virtue and wisdom, the
Worcester Spy speaks of Gameron as an
gnorant?scbeming ward politician, and the
Republican accuses him of incompetency,
and fraud in securing his election. Others
of ?'the President's serving-men in the Sen
"ate," the Republican sneers at, as Harlan
for virtue, Pomeroy and Nye for honesty,
Chandler for morality,' ?tc, leaving us very
few as worthy of trust or respect The New
York Evening Post says the President has
degraded the S'eDate to make it the mere
creature of his will, and the same sentiment
ia echoed by the-Worcester Spy. In short,
the break-up of the party is allowing honest
ben and others to geu,b^ir drfe.
The Conference nt Columbia on the TJp
. [From the Columbia Union,]
Upon invitation of his. Excellency the Gov?
ernor, several of the. prominent citizens pf |
the Stale assembled at the capital, on Monday
evening, to consult upon the present disturbed
conditlorr'of affairs In the upper portion of tho
State. Among those present were Colonel
Simeon Fair, of Newberry; General McGowan,
of Abbeville; Mr. Hemphillv ol Chester; Gen?
eral Kershaw, of Camden; General Easley, o?
Greenville; Colonel Wallace, Colonel Connor,
of Spartanburg; Messrs. Simons, o? the Cour?
ier-; Pope, Selbels and Ezell, of Columbia, and
several others. The conference was free and
pleasant, and tire "present condltldn of affairs
was-lreely discussed. The principal object of I
the conference was to arrive at- the cause of |
the existing troubles, and, if possible, suggest
a remedy. We were present, and listened to
the conversations- throughout, and confess to
being agreeably surprised at the general tone
ot the meeting.
The principal cause of the trouble, as urged
by nearly all af these gentlemen, was the or?
ganization and arming of one class or race oL I
citizens as against the other. It was argued,
witb considerable force, by every gentleman'
who-spoke upon the subject, that placing arms
tn the hands of-'the colored men gave a feeling
of Insecurity to the whites, and caused a fev?
erish feeling of alarm to pervade every com?
munity. Whether this feeling was well ground?
ed or otherwise, made no difference lo the iact
that such a feeling'actually, existed, and so
long as that feeling existed there was lmml.
nent danger of a collision upon the slightest
provocation. It was further urged-and not
without some show of reason-that the arming
of the colocad.militia was regarded by the
whites as dangerous to peace and good'order;
ind, whereas, before such arming was done,
men could go td bed In peace and security,
wUbout fear of molestation, "now they were
compelled to go armed themselves as a m ea?
rn re or self protection. The debate upon this -
subject was long and' exhaustive, but the con?
fusion reached by ali was, that" the arming. ?
ff the eolored militia was at least an unwise
neasure. ' 4
Another fruitful source of complaint, and
)ne which we haye regarded as lying at the
'.ecyjo?t of the whole'matter.'was the profil*
rate and irresponsible manner in which the
Legislature performed its work during the last j
It .will bo tecollected that we repeatedly
?varned the Legislature that the people were
patching its operations, and that dissatisfied
jonstlu.ents would bold derelict members to
in account for their stewardship. But one
mint in all the argument struck us witji more
bree than all others, aud tint was tbat the
iresent system was one o? "taxation without
?pr?sentation." This fact cannotbe denied,
hat, practically, tbe Legislature is a body that
?pr?sents but a very small portion of the
naterlal wealth of the State. : .
Many ot the gentlemen admitted that the
ier centum of taxation WM not cxhorbltanf,
mt the assessments were outrageously dlspro
iortionate-and unjust, and timi taxes were, iq
nany instances, ten times as high os they
night to be. This arises irom the incompeten?
cy of the assessors, few of whom actually know*
inything about the value of property, and
nany more being governed more by personal
?pite than by a desire to do justice. This is nbm
loubt true to a great extent.
These were the two 'principal points dis?
missed, "although others were Incidentally
nentioned. We are highly gratified with the
nardy and diguified-posilluns taken by General
dcGowan and Connel'Fair, and, while we
lave no particular j>b*ject]ons to offer to the
?marks of any one of the gentlemen present,
ve regard the stand taken by the two gentle
Den named as.pre-eminently Just and dlgol
led. - '
The meeting had no political significance
whatever, for politics were not mentioned, ex
:eptincldentallyvdurlng the entire conference.
That the meeting will result- in good, there ls
?very.reason to believe, as these gentlemen
ian return te their .homes Impressed with the
>ellei that the Governor really desires to pro
ect the interests of all classes ol citizens,
rrespectlve ol party lines.
- That there are certain abuses.In the Legis
ature which must be corrected, lhere ls no
me foolish edough to deny; and, se long as
hese abuses exist,* there will always be a
'mi; ful cause for complaint. Most of the gen
lemen who took part In the conference re?
turned to their homes yesterday. ."
