CONCLUSIONS OF A TRIBUNi: HAN
IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Thc Better Classes Sympathizing with
the .Klan-A Military or Territorial
Government Desired by Them-The
Coming Taxpayers' Convent ion - A
Plan of Conciliation.
Tlie special "investigating" correspondent;
of trie New "York Tribuae ia Scuta Carolina
writes irom Columbia under date ol'April 29:
A few days' intercourse with the people In
any of this part of the Stale, will convince any
ont- that public sentiment among the "respecta?
ble and influential class sustains tho Ku-Klux.
Olten I rind a mau who does not hesitate to
avow his sentiments. At dinuer yesterday I
met a gentleman who suki he was a large
properly-bolder near Columbia, and had boen,
a major in the Confederate service. Speaking
of the corruption of the State officers and
Legislature, he said: :'\Ve can't stat, i this
oppression and robbery any longer. My God !
slr. we were poor enough when the war end?
ed, without having this swarm of infernal car?
pet-baggers come down to devour what little
we had left." He went on to enum?ralo the
various rascalities by which he charged thai
the State officers have ?nri?hed themselves at
the expense. of the taxpayers, and finally,
> leaning toward me. said io a low tone, -Now,
PU tell you what we're going to do. If this don't
stop soon, we'll make it hot for the villains.
There wi. I be a hundred outrages lor every one
you hear of now. until the United States will
be obliged to put us under military govern?
ment. That is what we WRnt. The army offi?
cers are honest men. and won't steal from us.
They will sympathise with the white peo?
ple." I told him that the people at the North
generally believed that the disturbances in the
South arise from a hatred of Hie National Gov?
ernment. ' That's a mistake," he replied. "We
don't want any trouble with the (Jeuerai Gov?
ernment. We have had enough ot wars and
we want peace; but wc can't, sit still and see a
gone of thieves, sustained by a horde ol' igno?
rant niggers, take our property Irom ns." I
find this to be the general sentiment arnon j- the
white population. They declare thai they haue
no desire to resist Ike federal authority, ind
that their troubles all spring from bad State and
local government. An Intelligent man, who
said he helped to fire the first gun on Fort
Sumter, ana :ved through the war until
Johnston's surrender, corning out of the wreck
of the Confederacy with no other property than
a gray mulev talked with me the other day
with more moderation than is usually shown.
He said the white people of South Carolina
wouiti be glad if Congress would remand the
State lo a territorial condition, and send down ?
good men from the North to govern lt. Or If
they could have a military government no one
would object, for nothing could be as bad as a
government of ignorance. Indigence, and
lraud. If ihe men in power would consent to
some compromise lhat would give the proper?
ty and intelligence of the State a representa?
tion in the government, he believed there
would be peace; but if not, he was sure there
wouid be bloody times at the next election.
Everybody appears to look to ihe approach
ingAaxpayeiV convention te devise some plan
of conciliation that will bring harmony to the
Slate. It is believed that ibis can be accom?
plished oy an agreement beiween ihe leaders
ol both parties upon the following course: L
That the Ku-Klux outrages shall cease. There
is no doubt that the leading Democrats have
power to stop them if they wish to. 2. That
the Governor shall, as far as ls in bis power,
remove incompetent and dishonest local offi?
cers, and appoint In their places respectable
men of moderate views. This he has already
commenced doing. 3. That nothing shall be
done toward selling the sterling loan bonds
until there are further guarantees that the pro?
ceeds will be applied solely towurd the ex?
tinguishment of the present debt ol the State.
4. 'lhat an effort shall be made by thc Gov?
ernor and others to Induce the Legislature to
pass a law providing lor minority representa?
tion by a system of cumulative voting. The
convention meets on Tuesday, May 9, und will
probably be in session for three dajs. Dele?
gates have been chosen in all the counties el
Ku-Kim no Bar to Northern Settlers.
The New York Tribune publishes the follow?
ing card from Northern settlers in Virginia
and North Carolina, testify lng. that not only
are persons and property safe in the sections
O? those States where they reside, but thai
they never lived ina more orde:iyanil law
abiding community. Many of those who thus
testify are Republicans, and regular subscrib?
ers to the New York Tribune. Such evidence
ought to have its weight. The testimony
would, doubtless, apply to the South general?
ly under similar circumstances:
Editor of the Tribune-SIR: We have noticed
recently a great many publications in Tour pa?
per ^concerning outrages committed by Ku
K'uS in the Southern States. We know noth?
ing of the truth or falsity of these charge?:and
shall not undertake their refutation except so
tax as they may be understood to apply to the
whole South. The undersigned, all Northern
men by binn and education, have, since the
war, purchased bornes and settled, some in
Pittsylvania County, Virginia, and others In
Caswell and Rockingham CounlleB, North Caro?
lina, and many of us are Republicans nnd reg?
ular readers of and subscribers to the Tribune.
We have reason to believe that a large num- i
ber of our Northern friends earnestly desire to ,
emigrate to the South, supply themselves with ,
cheap land?; and enjoy this charming climate;- J
and we fear that they may be deterred from
doing so by the publications to which we have
referred. It is for this rea<on we request
the insertion of this letter in your paper, 1
in the hope that such other papers in the .
North as desire to do justice to every-portion
of the country will give li circulation. We
can sav, in truth, that not only persons and
properly ute sale in-Ihe sections of Virginia
and Norlh Carolina in which we reside, but
that we never lived In a more orderly or law
abiding community. We have been kindly re?
ceived by ihe entire people; our intercourse
with them has been in all respects as agree?
able as we could have desired. We have seen
no disposition to mistrust or even slight US on
account of our politics-ou the contrary, we ;
have nnilormly been treated with civility and
respect by every one with whom we have
come in contact. It is bul an act ol justice io
ourselves aud to the people living in ihe States
ot our adoption that we should say what we
have said, and we trust that you will give it a
place in your paper.

WASHINGTON, MeT7 4.
The Preside at has issued bis proclamation
as follows :
The act of Congress entitled ;i An act to en?
force the provisions of the Fourteenth amend?
ment to the Constitution oi the United States,
and for other purposes, approved April 20,
A. D. 1871," being a law of extraordinary pub?
lic importance, I consider it my duty to issue
this my proclamation, calling the attention of
the people ol the United states thereto,.en?
joining upon all good citizens, especially upon
all public officers, to be zealous in the
enforcement thereof, and warning ail per?
sons to abstain irom committing any
of tho act3 thereby prohibited. This
law oi Congress applies to all parts of 'he
United States, and will be enforced -ory
wbere to thc extent ot lite power vested in
the Executive. But inasmuch as the nece ssity
therefor is well known to have been caused
chiefly by persistent violations of the rights of
citizens of the United Slates by combinations
of lawless and disaffected persons in certain
localities lately the theatre of insurrection anti
military couflict, I do particularly exhort
the people ot those parts ol the country to
suppress all such combinations by their own
voluntary efforts, through the agency, ol the
local laws, anti to maintain thc rights of all
citizens or tlie United States, and to secure to
all sue*-: citizens the equal protection of the
Fully sensible of the responsibility imposed
upon the Executive by the act ol Congress, to
which public attention is now called, Rncl re?
luctant to call into exercise any of tho extra?
ordinary powers thereby conferred upon me,
except in cases ol " imperative necessity,
? do nevertheless deem it my duty to make
known that I "will not hesitate to exhaust
the powers Ihns vealed in the Executive,
whenever and wherever it shall become
necessary to do so for the purpose
of securing to all citizens of the Uni?
ted States the peaceful enjoyment of
the rights guaranteed to them by the*
constitution and laws. It is my earnest
wish .that peace and cheerful obedience to law
may prevail throughout the hind, and ihat ail
traces of our late unhappy civil strile may bc
Speedily removed. These ends can be easily
roached by acquiescence in the results ol tho
conflict now written ia our constitution, and
the due and proper enrorcemennt ot" equal,
just and Impartial laws in every part ol our
country. The failure of local communities to
furnish such means for the obtainment oi re?
sults so earnestly desired, imposes upon the'
National Government the duty ol putting
forth all its energies for ' the protection of ils

The Versailles forces have carried by assault

A MEMORABLE METHODIST
From a letter o? Bishop George F. Pierce, in

Those familiar with Mr. Wesley's Journal
will remember that he mude several visits to
Frederica on St. Simon's Island. H is report?
ed, and the loot is weil authenticated, that he
preached, al one time, under a live oak about
on.' half a mile from the Fort. The grove is
magnificent and Hit-age of the tree is beyond
question. Brother P. desired to have rav

connection, and myself us an officer iu Hie

invitation was able "to join us, and so the
church and people will suou be furnished with
a picture hallowed in thu memories that clus?
ter about it and somewhat remarkable in its
combinations. Here we have, in vision, Ogle?
thorpe and his colony-the first settlement
of Georgia-Hie mission of the Weslevs to

sixty-seven years in the ittneruncv-his sou in

from lue field bf conflict- pausing long enough
amid these scenes of the' pa-t for the sun "to

was well satisfied with his negative. How ihe
picture will look when finished up I canuul
tell. I judge the iikeness will be distinct

MAJ OH SAM DICKERSON ACCUSED
The Major's Adventures in New Yorli
A Polite Ent;:;slini:ij:-Story-Tel I i ns;
on thc Deck of thc Steamer-A lift tie
Nap and a Large Robbery-What Caine
of it all.
'.From thc New York Sun.
.The steamer South Carolina arrived from
Charleston on Saturday, bringing two distin?
guished Southern politicians, namely: Wil?
lard A. Hussey, a carpet-bagger, who was
formo/ly a captain in the Thirtieth Massachu?
setts Volunteers; and.Samuel Dickerson, a
negro major in the State militia, a prominent
Radical wirepuller. Captain Hussey was on
his way to Boston to visit his relatives, and j
Major Dickerson propofet! to deliver a course
ol lectures in New York this summer to his
colored brethren, and brought letters of in?
troduction from well known carpet-baggers to
the Hon. Horace Greeley. .Captain-Hussey
accumulated money while South: but the
major was less fortunate, and had oniv SD 43
when be landed at Pier 28, Nor'llt River. The
two military gentlemen were intimate during
thc passage-so intimate that Captain Hussey
?ave hfs own bed clothing to the maje ", and
IMPAKTED TO HIM A SECRET.
That secret was that in a small satchel, of
which-the purser had charge, the captain had
about $1100 in gold coin and several sets o? ;
very valuable jewelry.
Ou the arrival of Hie vessel both gentlemen
came ashore, and walking np the pier halted
in front of the barroom at the northeast corn?
er ol' Murray and West streets. There the
captain invited his ranking ollicer to lake a
drink. He ac cepted,?and together they enter?
ed the burroo.n.
"Sir," said the captain, striking a military
attitude as lie addressed ihe barkeeper,-'will
you allow my colored servant to drink with
The barkeeper answered in thc affirmative,
and in response to the question, "Wlmi will
you take, gentlenu-n ': ' ihe major called tor
S. 0. P. brandy, and Hie captain asked for gin
and molasses. Just, then they .vere joined by
an Englishman, who addressed himself to Cap?
tain Hussey, aud asked whether the colored
man was lils servant.
"Yes. sir, 'replied the captain, l-we are just
about taking a drink;
WON'T VOL' HELP I'S,"
.With pleasure, sab." chimed in the polite
Cockney, as he ordered a'mug of'?ill'an'alf.
Tiley drank several times; in fact, they drank
nntil both military gentlemen were silently
Inebriated. Then, for the flr.-i lime, Hie cap?
tain remembered that ho had forgotten his
satchel, and he so informed his newly-found
"What ie lu your satchel that makes yen so
uneasy ?" asked the Englishman.
'About $1400 in gold coln, and some valuable
[ jewelry that belonged to my wile." replied ihe
"Good enough," said the Cockriey: "ive hail
better look after lt then ?"
So they all went on board the steamer. The
captain found his valuables, und Hie (rio then
seated themselves on the deck and told stories
between puffs ol their fragrant Henry Clay
cigars. Suddenly, however, ihe gallant cap
talu became drowsy. In anot.hev?motnent he
was fast asleep. He slept about two hours,
and awoke lo And himself alone. Everything
was dark, it was >i o'clock at night, and neither
the gallant major nor'lhe polite Englishman,
SOU THE SATCHEL
with the money and jewelry was to be found.
In a semi-unconscious slate, like aman who
had been drugged, Hie captain wended his
way to the Chambers street police station and
told ihe story of ihe robbery to Captain Cherry.
Detective McDonald was at once instructed io
work nlghi . and day until tfie recovered the
property "and arrested the thief.
Yesterday morning while walking up West
street. Hie. detective'saw a mun who answered
the descrip ion ot Hie Englishman, as furnish?
ed by Captain Hussey, and he was made pri?
soner. Ile confessed lliat he hud the Jewelry,
but said that Major ?Dickerson had taken the
ramiey. On being taken to the Chambers
street police station, he gave his name as
George Howell, of 1077 Myrtle avenue, Brook?
lyn. The detective is satisfied that he is a
.<rolesslonal confidence operator and thief.
Laler in the day
MAJOR SAMUEL DICKERSON
was arrested by Detective McDonald.at 543
Broome street. He denied all Knowledge ol'
the robbery, said that he was a soldier and
honest rhan. that he had come North tb lec?
ture, that he was well recommended, and that
h?? would scorn to do an ungentlemanly acl.
Notwithstanding th'.'se protestations, however,
Justice .Hogan committed the major to the
Tombs in default ol S2?00 bail. Mr. Howell is
likewise in prison. The jewelry recovered by
Detective McDonuld comprises one handsome
gold and coral bracelet, with brooch and ear?
rings lo match, one set of gold ear-rings and
breiisl pin, with large carbuncle sellings, and
one massive gold chain.
LYNCH LAW IN WILLIAMSBURG.
d'rom the Kingstree Star.] '
Our heretofore quiet and peaceable district
has been disturbed and shocked ai the hang?
ing of two negro men, which occurred on
Monday and Thursday nights ol last week.
The Hi st of these executions took place near
Coward's Station, on Hie Noiihuasiern Rail?
road, on Hie 24ih ult.; nnd the other on
"Green's road,". on the 27ih ult. Coroner
Donath was notified and held inquests over
their bodies. At the investigation oi Daniel
Edwards, Hie first victim, he learned that a
parly ol' disguised men came to Hie house
where Edwards was slaying, lato in the
night, aud selected him from among
some other negroes. and carried him
on*. He was . found the next mornjug
a short distance from the house suspended
to a tree with a rope around his neck. Alex.
Mcclaur, the other victim, was visited in the
night also, and taken out of his house and
hung by the side ol' Hie public road, about ten
miles north ol' this village. We are informed
timi nothing was elicited al the investigations
ol' Hie coroner to idenlify any one connected
?withthese unlawful proceedings. That, they
are .1 bold and determined set r* men, well or?
ganized, lhere seems but lill, J doubt, as is
evident by the cool and systematic manner of
I their performances. A gentleman who lives
j in the neighborhood where McClain was hiing,
i informs us that he was aroused late at night
by a porty ol'men to learn Irom him the loca?
tion ol' McClain's house; thai being a lillie
cautious to go out at that Hmo, to u body ot
horsemen, he was politely informed by them
thai he would not be molested. He says fie
neither recognized their persons or voices.
The unfortunate victims who luve been so
summurily dealt with are said lo have been
prolessionul thieves and robbers, whose only
occupation wa? in depredating upon the prop?
erly of liieir neighbors, breaking open lioti?cd
Mini committing nil manner of theft. Their
characters were so bud in this respect that
they appear to have no sympathy from either
the blacks or whites, where they were known.
Tilt- coroner has handed us the following,
which he lound pinned lo thc breast of Alex.
