-The Virginia press is the fiercest of any
for Greeley. They say the South Is coming to
Baltimore to vote for him In the Democratic
National Convention against all comers. One
says "Virginia has her opinion without walt?

"all such" the cold shoulder, decidedly.
-The Springfield (M.) State Beg ls ter (Dem.)

read that "in one corner o? the room there
are nearly thirty boxes, from the different

hat They had come in so fast that Mr. Gree?
ley distributed them to the employees In the
buildlag. The compositors must have come
In for a good share, as the majority of them,
as they passed to the composing room that
evening were crowned with white hats."
-Our Atlanta exchanges of Saturday con- j
? talned a call for a meeting ol -Democrats op?
posed to a nomination of candidates for Presi?
dent and vice-President by the National I
D?mocratie Convention. The call was signed
by about^ eighty citizens, subscribing them?
selves as Democrats. Among the names we
observed those of Judge D. F. Hammond,
Evan P. Howell, Clark Howell, W. L. Gordon,
Colonel R. A. Alston, Perino Brown, Colonel
Thomas C. Howard and Colonel Lewis Tura?
lin. The meeting was to be addressed by
Colone'. Clnclnnatus Peoples and General A.
C. G?: llngton.
-The Democratic Convention of the great
State of New York has in effect endorsed
Greeley and Brown. It has fairly and enthu?
siastically committed Itself to the Cincinnati
platform. It thus puts behind lt tbe whole
record of the war, accepts the work of the war
as final, (constitutional amendments, negro
tuiTrage, and all,) Ulta Itself from the slough of
continuous and certain defeat, and turns
hopefully toward the problems of the future
The Empire State ls In foil accord with Vir?
ginia, m?nele, Texas, Connecticut, South Caio
Hna, and the rest. ''New York casts her
sixty-six votes for Horace Greeley."
-From a Texas paper comes an appalling
.tory ol the massacre In that State ol nine
teamsters and tbe capture of theireffecls by a
mixed marauding party, consisting of Indians,
negro deserters and Mexicans. The tragedy
took place on the El Paso road, where a sup?
ply train had halted for the usual midday meal
and rest, when, without a moment's warning,
the enemy swept down upon the company,
seized their weapons ol defence, and then de?
voted themselves to the execution of their
easily-acquired prisoners. The wagons were
pillaged or their abundant stores and rolled
together, after which their helpless drivers
were tied to them and the whole pile set on
Ure, while the cruel captors kepi up the dance
of death until their victims' shrieks ceased to
afford music, when, gathering up the Bpolls
and taklDg the mules, they decamped. The
government troops who sought to punish the
treachery failed, and the correspondents who
gleaned the details ol the affair say that the
unusual atrocity was due to the greater sav?
ageness of the Indians' new allies, the black
The State Convention-Its Powers and
The State Democratic Convention, under
the call of the State Executive Committee,
will be held in Columbia on Tuesday, the
11th of Jane. This Convention will deter?
mine whether the Democracy of thia State
shall send delegates to the National Demo?
cratic Convention, and- what line of policy
the delegates, if sent, shall pursue.
Upon the maia issue of the Presidential
canvass the South Carolina Democracy are
apparently a unit. Toey look first to the
welfare of the State, but they have no rr -
son to fear that their taking part in the Bal?
timore Convention will d.minish the pros?
pect of local reform, and they know and feel
tbat sucb a reform in tbe character of the
National Government as is promised in the
Cincinnati platform would be of incalculable,
if indirect, advantage to all the States of
the South. There are some few presses in
this State which are still in doubt These
await the action of tbe National Convention
before deciding what they will do. To them
we say that tbe Baltimore Convention can?
not change wrong into right The wisdom,
nay 1 the common sense of a course of ac?
tion is not determined by its adoption or re?
jection by a political convention. Such a
body may cause a movement to fall, inas?
much aa il is far easier to pull down than to
build up; but it cannot, by a set of r?solu-1
tiona, make the movement one jot more or I
less patriotic and sagacious tban it waa be?
fore tbe Convention assembled. It ls our
deliberate judgment, and we believe it to be
the judgment of the large majority of the
Sonth Carolina Democracy, that the nomi?
nation of a Democratic candidate in Balti?
more will ensure the re-election of Grant
and destroy tbe only reasonable expectation
which the Southern States have had, in
seven years, of obtaining Amnesty and
Peace. Such a nomination wonld be an act
of selfish folly, if not worse; and what we
call it now we should unhesitatingly call it
when the act, and with lt our ruin, was ac?
complished. The interests of the Northern
Democrats are not, in many respects, our
interests. They can afford to stake their
fortunes on a sentiment or a name, but this
particular form of foolishness Is well-nigh
dead tn th-> South. We want a just govern?
ment which will not interfere with the
rights of tbe people, and under wbicb com?
merce shall revive and person and property
be safe. This manner of government the
Southern States must have, and they will
not hold them guiltless who, because of silly
oM>r<Mi ~- ,-ambition- aland K?
tween the Sonth and redemption from the
worst evils which ever afflicted a people. It
is indispensable that these convictions have
their full expression at Baltimore, and lt ls
therefore a duty to appoint a strong delega?
tion from every Southern State. There is no
doubt that South Carolina will Bend ber rep?
resentatives. The press is nearly in accord
upon that point It must be our endeavor,
besides, to choose delegates who will fitly
represent the present opinions of the people
men of thought and power, who will not be
cozened or brow-beaten by any set of Tam?
many politicians. We think it best that the
South Carolina delegation should be in?
structed to oppose, in every way, the nomi?
nation of Democratic candidates for Presi?
dent and Vice-President. It is not ex?
pected, nor is it desirable, that the Na
tional Convention should nominate Gree?
ley and Brown. Tbey can and they should
abstain from making a nomination, and
should advise tbe Democratic masses to sup?
port tbe Cincinnati candidates as the surest
way of accomplishing the changes in the
policy of the government which are requisite
for personal safety and public freedom. All
these matters, so far as South Carolina is
concerned, must be determined in Columbia
on the 11th of June, and we deem it of the
first importance that the Convention be a
full one, and that it be composed of the right
kind of men-that is, of men who represent
the wiso opinions of to-day, not the crotch?
ety notions of four or five years ago.
Tbe Connty Meetings to elect delegates to
the State Convention will be held, we pre?
sume, on the first Monday in June-in
Charleston the meeting might properly be
held at an earlier day. There may not be a
great disposition to encounter the trouble
and expense of going to Columbia; because
no opposition will be apprehended to the
action generally expected to be taken. But
this State cannot afford to run any risk.
South Carolina should cry out for reform
more loudly than ber sister States; for her
plight is worse than theirs. It is not her
wont to whisper the story of ber suffering;
and, now that these spur her to insist that
the Northern politicians shall not again
sacrifice her and her sisters, ber voice must
be clear and resonant as the blast of a trum?
pet. And this can only be, if the State
Convention be composed of her staunchest
citizens, and ir, in addition, her delegates
carry with them the unmistakeable expres?
sion of the fixed resolution of her people.
Upon this Presidential election, as we under?
stand the situation, depends the weal or the
woe of Sonth Carolina. Tbe County meet?
ings should be large, and the State Conven?
tion should be fall. And in selecting dele?
gates to the State Convention lt is hoped
that the people will remember how mach
barm has before this been done by the rash
words of thoughtless doctrinaires. No man
should be a delegate whose past record will
tend to cast a shadow or suspicion over the
proceedings of the body. Itongbt to be a
gathering of citizens, not of politicians. The
younger men can now come to the front.
Give them a slight leaven of age and expe?
rience, and they will make a model Conven?
tion-one which will join to the caution and
sobriety of ripe years the hard common
sense and practical wisdom of youth. This
is the kind of Convention wanted now. It
rests with the people to seize the opportu
ni ty, perhaps the last, or reminding the
Northern Democracy that the restoration of ^
the South to its old relations is oar most,
grievous national want, and of proving that j
South Carolina is resolved to leave nothing
undone for accomplishing her own regene?
ration, and for healing up the wounds which
war and proscription inflicted upon her
The Baltimore Convention.
General Kershaw, ia a letter to Colonel
Simeon Fair, advises against sending dele
j gate3 from South Carolina to the National
Democratic Convention, mainly because
I such a step might hinder the possibility of a
Reform Republican movemeut in this State.
We cannot see that thoie is any solid
ground for apprehending so undesirable a j
' result. The object in sending a Democratic
delegation to Baltimore is to vote against a
party nomination, and in favor of hearty co?
operation with the Liberal Republican move?
ment. And a like policy obtains in State
affairs. The people are ready to support
any decent Repul-.icun candidates whom Re?
publicans may put in the field ; but they
know that it would be the height of fully to
i nominate Democratic candidates for State
I offices, nod under no circumstances will
! they do anything of the kind. This is the
bent of public sentiment; and the participa?
tion of Sooth Carolina in the Baltimore Con?
vention, while increasing the chances of the
election of Mr. Greeley, could not, io our
opinion, cause the people to change or
modify their fixed resolution to leave the
State elections la the bands of the contend?
ing Republican factions. We may add that
what information we have regarding the
Sooth Carolina Reform Republicans leads OB
to believe that they are wholly indifferent as
to the action of the Democracy ia regard to
the National Convention. What they ask is
that there shall be no Democratic State
ticket, which is no more tkan every sensible
man is ready to concede.
THERE is reason for hoping that the
I precious scheme of calling an extra session
'of the Legislature will full through. It is
vigoroasly opposed by tho Radical press,
and by several of the prominent members of
the Senate and House.
