1869. A proviso that such payment should be 1

-With the beginning of the stammer travel 1

of the respective steamboat lines running .
from New York to Albany and Troy. The \

competition between the two companies now
-atruggllngfor the public favor. So great ls *
this competition that passengers are carried
from, New York to Catskill, a most delightful
mountain resort, In the Hudson Highlands, ror
ted cents, and the price o? a ticket to Albany 1
and Troy ls only fifty cents. As this spirit o?
rivalry will probably be maintained during the
season, a lively travel may be anticipated
along thia noble and historic stream.
-The press pretty generally pronounces Mr. 1
Greeley's letter accepting the Liberal nomi?
nation on able and vigorous paper, some ol !
the opposition even styling it courageous,
while a single Journal, the New York Post,
merely regards it as "cunning." From this
point the line of comment divides. The ad?
ministration papers say that the life has been
taken out of lt by the action of Congress in
passing what they call the amnesty act, a par?
tial and hence ungracious measure at this late
day. 1 hey also speak of lt as a bid for Demo?
crat lc?8upporL A straight-out Democrat lc paper
savs that In it Mr. Greeley departs from his
llle long principles, as that paper under?
stands them. One Free Trade paper speaks
of Mr. Greeley "as willing to hide his pro?
tectionist proclivities under a mass of
words." But however adverse the line
of criticism, or however inimical to Mr.
Greeley may be the critic, not ono undertakes
to pronounce the letter anything short of a
first-class document in point of tone as well as
method. Those who speak for Southern sen?
timent point ont that in it Mr. Greeley touches
a chord which ls quick to respond generously
to its generous sentiment. The Washington
correspondent of the Baltimore Sun wrltee:
"Several Democratic Southern members who
were not disposed to favor the nomination
now admit that they are willing to stand by
him if he will abide by his letter."
Tbe Columbia Convention .
The State Convention, called by the Dem
cratic Executive Committee, will be beld tn
Columbia on Tuesday, the 11th of June.
That Convention will declare the policy
which shall be pursued with regard to the
Baltimore Convention, and the Liberal Re?
publican movement; ant! we trust that every
County will promptly choose delegates, in
order that the Convention may truly express
the will of the Democratic and Liberal citi?
zens ot the State.
It is our deliberate opinion that South
Carolina should send a strong delegation to
Baltimore, instructed to vote against a
Democratic nomination, and in favor of tbe
adoption of the Cincinnati candidates. There
ie, here and there, a show of opposition to
this course, the objection being that any re?
organization of thc Democratic party, and
any participation in National politics, will
place insuperable difficulties iq the woy of ob?
taining reform in the government of the State.
Naturally enough, we thiuk that there is no
force in these views, and that all the strength
of the argument is on the side of making a
stout effort to prevent the rejection of Gree?
ley and Brown through the scheming of a
squad of disaffected politicians. But this
question can best be settled on the door of
the Columbia Convention, and we therefore
suggest that tboso who desire to bury the
Democratic party, and to let Federal politics
severely alone, can hardly afford to give the
Convention tho cold shoulder. The Conven?
tion will be held, and tbe counties wbicli are
in favor .oi* sending a delegation to Balti
nore will certainly be represented. Unless
.bose who urge a different course are willing
;hat the question should go against them by
lefault, "they should n?tltt?y?way. "We be?
lieve that they will? be argued down; but
.hey will have fair play, and they can hardly
-efuse to be bound by the action of the ma
ority. Should they desire, moreover, to
ormally disband the Democratic party in
.bis State, aud convertit into a Conservative
)arty like that which sweeps everything bo?
oro it in Virginia, they are not likely to lind
i better opportunity or obtaining a full liear
og, and an honest verdict
One county should not wait for another,
riiey may act simultaneously, elect their
lelegates on Monday next, and let thc State
Convention, in numbers and ability, be a
?vorthy representative of tile intelligence,
.he wealth and the liberal conservatism of
T/te Nation i-r sadly mistaken if it thinks
hat any class nf Southerners look on Horace
?reeley as "a ridiculous old fool,'' and will
lo their best lo i natal him at tho White
louse "as a bitter, revengeful joke." No
>tber Republican could uavebeen nominated
vho would have been as strong iu the Soutb
ta Horace Greeley is. Charles Francis
Adams could not have polled one-third of the
rote which Mr. Greeley will obtain. There
s no joke about it Mr. Greeley is known
o be an original Abolitionist, an uncompro
nising Republican, and an unswerving Pro
ecticnist; but his whole life shows bim to be
in honest man, who will scourge "the thiev?
ing carpet-bagger," who will see that equal
ustice ls done to whites and blacks, who
rill put none bat good men in office, who, in
tis own ringing words, will be the President
lot of a party, but of the whole people. The
lomination or Horace Greeley is an olive
?rauch. extended to the South. No Northern
nan can doubt his loyalty and his devotion
0 the Republican party. No Southerner can
loubt his love of jnstice, his desire.to give
be whole country amnesty and peace. The
tooth pays little heed to eccentricities of
nanner and garb,.when the question is one
tpon -wbose wise solution the weal of the
:ountry depends. And striking down to the
leart and up to tho brain, the South knows
dy intuition, by an impulse which cannot err,
that Horace Greeley is the one man who can
cause North and South to join hands-the
Mie mon who can make thia, in very truth,
1 united people. This is why he is so heartily
and unanimously supported by the South.
There is no bitterness in it no revenge
that would be incompatible with a sincere
indorsement of Horace Greeley, and hypoc?
risy is not a Southern failing. If The
Nation really dreads the election of the
?vood-chopper of Chappuqua, it will Und in
November that the Southern acceptance Of
he Cincinnati nomination is not so much of
i joke after all.
A MEETING will be held at Union Court
jouse on Monday next to elect delegates to
represent the wishes and reelings of the
Democrats of the county in the State Con?
THE Columbia Carolinian is authorized to
say that GeneralJ. B. Kershaw is "one or
"those who favor the assembling" of the
State Democratic Convention.
We do not see that the holding of a State
Democratic Convention implies the perma?
nent reorganization of the Democratic party
in this State. The Convention will be com?
posed of all the elements of opposition to
the Grant administration, and it may dub it?
self a Conservative Convention or a Reform
Convention, wilhout depriving itself of the
right to send delegates to Baltimore. When
that is done, the functions of the Convention
will cease. This State cannot touch a Dem?
ocratic candidate, ii thc Ballimore Conven?
tion should nominate one; and in order that
Greeley and Brown may be most effectively
supported, io the event of their endorsement
by the National Democracy, it is be3t that a j
Liberal movement be organized by Republi?
cans, with whom the Conservatives can
work and vote. The business of the Colum?
bia Convention is lo say whether the Libe?
rals and Democrats of Soutb Carolina shall
make tbemselve heard in Baltimore as the
advocates of Greeley and Brown. That's all.
Move at Once.
The wards and precincts in Charleston
County must elect their delegates not later
than Wednesday night, or they cannot be
represented in the County Convention,
which assembles on Thursday morning. Re?
member that the County Convention and
the State Convention will not be composed of
old line Democrats alone ! All citizens who
are opposed to the rn ?sraleof the Radical
party now controlling the Federal adminis?
tration are entitled to take part in ibo elec?
tion of delegates, and are eligible themselves
as delegates. No man who is honestly desi?
rous of reforming the government wiil Und
himself out of place at tbe meetings here and
in Columbia. Let the meetings be full, and
let the wards move at once. There is no
time to lose !
Not Exactly Bolt I"
The Columbia Phoenix asks if we have
any right to take part in the proceedings of
the Ballimore Convention, if we are not wil
liDg to abide by the action of the Conven?
tion ? We say tbat we cun do what Virginia
' proposes to do, and what the rest of the
South is expected- to do. The South Curo
lina delegates can bc instructed to with?
draw in case the Convention shall decide to
make a new nomination. If they lake no
part in the nomination of candidates, the
Stute will be free to support Greeley and
BrowD, or to remain absolutely passive in
the contest. The obligation to stand by the
nominees is not incurred unless tbe Slate
lakes part iu making them ; but the failure
to lake part in tbe nomination will not pre?
vent the people from supporting the new
candidates, if so disposed. That is clear
