-Three young gentlemen left Selma, Ala.,
one day last week on what will doubtless be
considered, In this day of railroads and rapid'
transit, a remarkable trip. - They left for New
York on horseback, and will go the entire dis?
tance in tue saddle. Their names are as fol
1 ows : C. L. Tilden, Frederick Sherman and
B. D. Turuer. The first two have been In busi?
ness In Selma for some months post; the lust
named came from New York specially to make
this trip. They are all well mounted and
equipped for the journey, and, no doubt, will
have a pleasant trip. They are Northern men,
?and the Selma Times suggests that they take
"Washington In their route, and when they
reach there, that they be called before the
Congressional committee to tell what they saw
ol the Ku-Klux.
-The Rev. Mr. Cheney, of Chicago, is out in
full revolt against Bishop Whitehouse, of Il?
linois, and < he high church majority ol the
diocese. Although no longer sustained by the
courts, yet at the Easter election ol vestrymen
he was supported by his church with only one
dissenting vote. As he was suspended for in?
subordination, the bishop did not attend to
administer the rite of confirmation to the can"
didates. bat that seemed to make no differ?
ence, since nineteen persons presented them?
selves, and, in lack of a better, Mr. Cheney
took the Presbyterian position, and himself
officiated as bishop, confirming the applicants,
apparently to their entire satisfaction.
-A Washington letter, of Thursday, says:
"The prospect of the passage by the Senate of
the House amnesty bill is not very good, from
the fact that lt requires the amendment of the
rule In loree restricting tho order ot business.
There is also a probability, if lt should be taken
up, that along discussion would result, which
would naturally be confined to the enemies of
the measure. This ls to be regretted, ior at
1 east half ot the New England senators are
disposed to support lt, If lt could be brought to
a vote at once. As Boon as the Ku-Klux bill
i s disposed of, an effort will be mad? to bring
the question before the 8enate, when the
friends of the measure hope for a favorable
-In consequence of the recent r?signation
of a Democratic member of the New i'^rk As?
sembly, the Tammany party ia one short of
the magic numoer, slxty-ilve, requisite to pass
a bill. In this condition of affairs the Re?
publicans of both houses held a caucus,
and combined to defeat all bills considered
Democratic party measures. The party lines
will now be tightened up a little, but the Re?
publicans themselves throw some doubt upon
the steadfast obedience ol two of their party
to the cau-ius dictum. The Democrats, la
.caucus, resolved to introduce a bill at
onc? lor holding an election in the Six?
teenth District of New York City, to till the
vacancy, aad lt was resolved to use all parlia?
mentary means to pass lt without delay. A
telegram received since the above was writ?

-A Washington dispatch of Wednesday ? t
says : uTne action of ihe Senate to-day in | c
adopting Seuaior Sherman's resolution direct- b
lng tbe finance committee-, during the recesa,
to inquire into and readjust the present sys?
tem of taxation.' Is regarded as an indication
that we* are to have a large reduction of taxes
at the next session of Congress. There are
those who believe that the result of the com'
mittee's labors, provided they are prosecuted
without allowing Secretary Boutwell to inter?
f?r?, will be a bill which will cut down taxes
to the extent of seventy-five millions per an?
num. Some think we can afford to dispense
with a hundred millions. The most moderate
expect a reduction of at least fifty millions.
There is reason to believe that the system of
internal taxation will be attacked most vigo?
rously, and that the reductions will be made
mainly in that quarter. The committee will
not begin lt? work until after the fall elec?
Minority Representation-Its Effect in
There is no prospect of amending theJCon
stitution of the State Of South Carolina so as
to require a property, or educational, qualifi?
cation of al! persons claiming the right to
vote. The Fifteenth Constitutional Amend?
ment does not stand in the way. A property
test, or an educational test, is not a discrim - ]
?nation on account of race, color or previous
condition of servitude. But as the bulk of
the poor and of the illiterate, in this State,
are negroes, the effect of such a test would
be to deprive far more blacks than whites of
the privilege of tho suffrage. No snell test,
or qualification, could te engrafted npon the
Constitution, without the consent of the
identical men whom the completed amend?
ment would disfranchise. To ask the negro
majority to support such an amendment, is
to ask them to put themselves in the minor?
ity, and strip themselves of whatever pro?
tection their numbers now give them. To
ask the Kadical leaders to advocate such an
amendment, is to ask- them to vacate all
their fat offices and to give up all their profit?
able control over tbe legislation of the State.
Neither the voling rank and file, nor the
Radical dignitaries, pretend to be angels of
un sel ii 3 h ness. They have their full share o?
the weaknesses of humanity. How, then,
can the whites ask the colored people, with
good grace, to do what we, if the boot were
on' the other leg, would never dream of
Yet there is an evident need of some con?
stitutional check upon an irresponsible ma?
jority. The sixty thousand whites require di?
rect representation;' not merely because of
their intelligence nnd comparative wealth, but
because minorities have rights, and because
ao majority can be trusted to legislate, at all
iimes, with an eye to the welfare of the minor?
ity. This evil has been felt in every State in
;he Union, and, because of the exceptional
ignorance and poverty of the negroes, is felt
with terrible force in Sooth Carolina. In
other words, there is no reason wky 90,000
colored voters should have 60,000 white vo?
ters wholly at their mercy. The 90,000 are
m titled to a preponderance of representa?
ron, but the 60,000 are entitled to represen
lation in the degree of their voting strength.
Chis is the principle of tbe representation of]
ninorities as engrafted upon the constitution
if Republican Illinois, and os practiced, an-1?
1er Democratic auspices, in Pennsylvania. J(
Tbe pian is os simple as the alphabet.
Vbere, os in Illinois, cumulative voting,
is it is called, is a feature of the public law,
lach voter at all elections is entitled to as
nany votes as there are persons to be voted
or. These votes the voter may'divide arnon;,
be candidates,, or cast them all for any one j
andtdate. Take Charleston County, as au
sample of the operation of this cumulative
oting in South Carolina. There are eigh
een members of tbe House of Representa
Ives to be elected, and there are 12.000
tadical voters and 8000 Conservativ? voters,
t is evident that the Conservatives by cast
ng their votes, 144,000 in number, for seven t}
andidates would give those candidates a r.
najority and would elect them, while the [
iadical voters, by concentrating their vote
ipon eleven candidates, could, in the same
ray, elect those eleven. Both Conservatives
ind Radicals would be represented in the (
ieneral Assembly in the ratio of 12,000 to
OOO. And, under this system, the Radicals
rould obtain their fair share of representa
ion.intbe counties where they, instead of
be Conservatives, are largely in the minor
y. The general effect would be that the 11
wo parties would stand in tbe General As-11
enibly as 90,000 to 60,000. Patting down
he number of members of the lower Honse
1 one hundred and twenty, the plan of
umulative voting should give tbe Radicals
2 members, and the Conservatives 48 mern-1 j
This, it seems to us, is the most certain
ray of obtaining for tbe whites the voice
rhich is their due in conducting the affairs
f the State. The principle has the approval i ?
f tbe most thoughtful statesmen in the
onntry. It bas tbe commendation, in this c
.tate, of the leading Republican paper, and 1
f many prominent members of the Radical ''
arty. No man is deprived of the right to 11
ote. Oae voter bas as many votes os the
ther. No attempt is made to give capital
tie power to crush labor, or to take the gov- ^
rnment from one race and class and give it
3 another. All that is done is to give all
len representation in proportion to their
otiog strength, in this way abolishing that
tupid and unjust principle which makes
lujorities supreme, and allows 101,000 men
3 dispose, as they will, of the lives and for-1
unes of the 99,000 who voted 'squarely
Shall not an attempt be made to introduce
ii South Caro.ina, as a sure way of saving
he State from anarchy and ruin, the blessed
irinciple of minority representation ?
'He New York San and thc Broadway
A. P., the Columbia correspondent of the
few York Bun, in bis desire to throw a flood
f light upon the rascalities connected wah
>uuili Carolina Radicalism, b s triade some
tutem? nts whicn are not warranted by thu?
rn th. A paragraph, in a recent letter, re
liing lo the Broadway Baak, is a striking
ase in point. A P. suid :
"The Broadway Bank has had an agent here
in Columbia) all winter, looking aller its lii?
erest? and watching that the Legislature did
lot do anything to endanger its securities.
?he fraud in this transaction has been so great,
o unblushing, that the Bank evidently secs
epudiutlon of that portion of the debt ut
east lurking In the air, and, from all I ca?
earn, its fears are weil founded. Whatever
he State ot South Carolina may do AMI Ibu
ilher bonds, the Land Commission bonds will
e repudiated as certain us the sun shines.
The people bare- never had a dollar's value
from their Issue,, and they swear they will
never pay them.*
Aa Boon as thia statement made its ap?
pearance, the officers of the Bank sent to the
Sun the following card :
"To the Editor of The Sun:
"SIB-In a letter signed A. P., dated Colum.
bia, S. C., March 28, 1871, contained in your
Issue of Saturday, April 6,1871, at the latter
portion of said letter statements are made
which aro so entirely incorrect that we ask as
a simple act of Justice to the business commu?
nity, as well as the' National Broadway Bank,
that you will, by our authority, contradict
those statements. The officers of this Bank
never saw any ol the $700,000 bonds, never
knew that there were any such bonds ; never
had any arrangements with Mr. Klmpton or
any one else In reference to any bonds of the
State of South Carolina but what was open,
fair, and legitimate ; never had an agent of
any kind in that State, and are ready at any
time to give all the Information that ls perti?
nent and legitimate to be given to any person
that bas a right to ask, in reference to what
we know about any financial business entrust?
ed *o their care or charge. Believing that you
are as ready to do justice as to receive lt, we
remain yours truly,
"P. A. PALMER, President.
"J. L. EVERITT, Cashier.
.'National Broadway Bank, April 8, 1871."
This official assurance was enough to sat?
isfy the public that the Broadway Bank has
no connection with any of the dark schemes
of oar State officials, and that its dealings
with this State, as with the whole mercantile
community, have been both fair and above?
board. The Broadway Bank stands as high -
as any similar institution in the United
States, and its principal officers, Mr. Pal?
mer and Mr. Everitt, are everywhere recog?
nized as gentlemen of unsullied integrity, as
well as of large financial experience and
practical business ability.
CONSISTENCY is a jewel. The Radicals in
Congress were ready enough last week to
vote $12,000 for tbe relief of aged and des?
titute colored people in the District of Co?
lumbia, but when Congressman DeLarge
offered an amendment appropriating $20, .
000 for the Sisters of Mercy, in this ?ity, ob?
jection was made, and the charitable project
failed once more. The Radicals, who had
grown so eloquent in behalf of the poor ne?
gro, had not a word to say for the Sisters of
Mercy. The Democrats, of course, did all
in their power to have the objection with?
