Governor Perry his been an ardent defender
and supporter ol tbe Union from hts early
manhood.to the pr -tient moment. He was op?
posed to nullification, aud risked his lite lu de
T#fence of bis principle?. Ile opposed tire Bluf
ton movement, and- wrote and spoke vigoro us

sion movement in '50 and '51, and no mah In
Ibis Stale was more zealous and acitvti lu his
opposition. He spoke and voted against the
secession movement In '60 add 'Cl, and stood
6ol?tary and alone on the floor of the House of
Repr?sentatives, voting no against the bffl to
eau a conven tien to secede. And now he raises
his voice af warning against the ruinous taxa?
tion which threatens to produce Eeuaiiuion.
Will h\s warning be heeded? This Is.a very
grave question; lt dema?ds'very serious con?
sideration. We believe, with Governor Perry,
If it ls attempted to collect this tax, the at?
tempt will bring on resistance. The people of
this State have shown a pat ?euee and endur?

The Sterling Bo Md Act-What Ought
th? Qoverament to Bo ?
[From the Greenville E?ierpr?se.1
The outrageons act of the Legislature which
m nat add- a million of dollars 'of useless asd
irfcadu'rent debt to the burdens of the taxpay?
ers of South Carolina, is, fortunately, so word?
ed aa to leave the whole matter to the dis?
cretion ol Governor Scott He ls not compell?
ed or absolutely required to put it In force.
The langn ige of the act te, "That the Govern?
or of tbe State be, and he ls hereby, author-'
Ired to borrow on- the- credit of the State of
South Carolina ? sum" not exceeding one
million, two l.undred thousand pounds s teri- '
lng," ic, ?co. It ls clear, then, that the Gov?
ernor may, or'may not, se he chooses," carry
the aet into force. When he perceives the
Immense? dissatisfaction of the people, and
the terribie evils to grew out of it,
(determined repudiation not the least,
perhaps,) we trust and believe that
he will not enter upon negotiations- 1or
this'loan. It ls plainly and entirely a scheme
to benefit aud enrich a few bondholders at the
expense of the people of the State. Tbe peo?
ple ought not to submit to such a law. Not
all the -sophistry of cunning naen can show
that lt ls right, excusable or honest. Why
change the bonds ? what good to the Slate or
taxpayers ? who but the Interested men, who
expect to pocket the people's money desired
this thing ? We have had enough of plunder.
We hope the entire press of the State will
speak eut ou -th ls matter plainly and emphati?
cally. It seems to us that if the Governor h its
any regard for the general welfare, peace and
prosperity ol the good people of Sooth Caro?
lina, he will not^ because the law does not re?
quire him to carry out tbe sterling bond act.

Men will cling to existence; nay, they will
fight for existence, and the money of which
they are robbed constitutes that existence
since the late war has leit them so little upou
?which to subsist. The advocates of this exces?
sive taxation contend In its justification that,
the per centum (lt mills on the dollar) te not
exorbitant'. This is not altogether false if
these lour teen mills, were only charged upon
. everydollar's worth of real property, ont create
a fi ct ry oils value for property by making the
assessment ten fines the real value, and you
have one hundred and forty mills ou every
dollar of real property, and Is exactly fourteen
per cent, upon ?hat property. This ls the way
in which the people are oppressed, and Ita
hardships drive men-to desperation.
Now this does not bear so hardly upon the
colored man. With very few exceptions, t r. cy

Another manifestation of the Ku-Klux spirit
iras witnessed on Wednesday last, in fia: en
Ibo County. L. B. Bigger, a raerchantof .rhe
Monty, ? man of Northern birth and ntttroe
Jents. was taken from his store by a band of
men lu disguise, carried to a wood near by,
md backed, gagged, aud tied to a tree, where
ie was compelled to witness the destruction
sf his property, and sign ? bond to quit the
:eunty within twenty<lonr hours, never to re?
turn under penalty of death. He waa then re?
leased, and ut last accounts was missing liptu
he neighborhood. So much lor the outrage.
Now for the causes which led to lr.
? Bigger ls a carpet-bagger, and, it is said, ona
>fthe meanest kind, He was formerly au
jfflcer of the Freedmen's Bureau. By dint of
economy la the expenditure of an infinitesi?
mal salary he saved some money. Your gen?
uine Bureau man always gets rich by frugality.
Bigger opened a store lu Clarendon, and until
fie made himself odious did pretty well. The
Ku-Klux paid him a visit, however, a year fer
so ago, and the consequence was that Rigger's
Hore was burned. It was huavily insured by
Northern companies. Agents from those
companies weise instructed lo Investigate the
ure. Several of the agents reported against
Bigger's claim OU tue Northern companies.
They were all paid, however, ar last.
Bigger then went for a bigger grab. He
knew where to come lor lt He came to the
L?gislature, and $12,000 ol State funds Bl?"*er
thought would heal his lacerated bimi. "The -
State should have protected him, he said, and
as lt did not, he. claimed $12,000 damages. But
lhere wasn't money enough in a $12,000 claim
to get it. through that immaculate body, and
the scheme failed. Had Bigger not been so
modest, and had he added another cipher to
his claim, it would have gone through with a
rush. So Bigger left Columbia poorer and

must be made up lu some way; so he opened

negroes on the adjoining plantations stole th?*

Bigger has carried this on for several months.

WASHINGTON, March 27.
Senator Boomer occupied the Senate all day.
He sums up the San Domingo case thus:
?.In tera at io al law bas been violated In two ol
its commanding rules: one securing the
equality ot nations, and the other providing
against belligerent Intervention, while a dis?
tinctive fundamental principle of the consUtu.
ti on; by which the President is deprived'df? a
kingly prerogative, is disregarded, and this
very kingly prerogative is asserted hy the
President. This 1B the simplest statement.
Looking still further at the facts, we see that
all this great disobedience bas fdr its object
the acquisition of an outlying tropical
island, with large promise of wealth, and that, ]
in carrying out this scheme, our Republic has
ibrcibly maintained a usurper in power, that
he might sell his country, and has dealt a
blow at the Independence of the black Repub?
lic of Hay ti, which, besides being a wrong to
that Republic, was an insult to the African -
race; and all this has been done by preroga?
tive alone, without the authority of an act ol
Congress. If such a transaction, many-bead?
ed ia wrong, can escape Judgment, lt Ia diffi?
cult to see what securities remain; what ether
Beeret rule ol International law may not
be violated; what other foreign nation may not
be etruok at; what other belligerent menace
may not be hurled; what other kingly preroga-.
tire may not be seized ?" In the course of his
speech, enlarging upon the declaration that
the President liad placed himself at the ?sad
of a more powerful and costly Kn-Klux than
those of the South, Mi. .Sumner proceeded :

Congress, or rather the Senate, still harps
upon the Ku-Klux outrages. For the Bake ol
that topic, seemingly, It refused to adjourn,
and keeps members ol the House and others,
who see what danger menaces the Radical
party by their delay, In a high .condition of ex?

adjourns early. The Senate convenes with
exact regularity, and light the old battles over
again with as much vim and angry'earnestness

years' discussion. In the meantime the dead?

It is actually wonderful that this question
of alleged outrages South, based upon mythi?
cal Ideas, should have absorbed the attention
ol Congress to the exclusion of everything
else. The financial situation, questions of tariff
and revenue reform, and even the great an?

laid aside until next session (excepting possi?

refuse to allow any postponement of the
