VOLUME IX.-NUMBER 1996. CHARLESTON, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 4, 1872._EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR.
"OUR SMOKY G/ESAR."
SENATOR CHARLES SUMNER'S GREAT
? Terrible Indictment of the Grant Ad
The Northern papers received last evening:
brought us the full report of Mr. Sumner's
great speech against Grant, delivered on Fri?
day last. The subject before the Senate was
the Whitewashing" report of the committee
who Inquired into the alleged frauds in the
sale of arms to the French; but the senator's
cr.tlclsm upon that was brief. The greatest
part of his speech, which was very long, was
devoted to showing that the Republican party,
which was organized to promote honest prin?
ciples and was long upheld by statesmanship,
has been perverted to the use of political
- rings and personal government. He cited
many facts to show that General Grant ls in?
competent for civil office. His military train?
ing and experience made bim incompetent to
appreciate the true meaning of the consti?
tution, which so distinctly provides a dis?
tinction between the different depart?
ments of the government. As a rule.
military chieftains were unfit for civil
rulers and statesmen. It would be hard to
find anything in the native endowments or lu
the training of our ohieitaln to mas? him an
illustrious exception ; at least nothing of this
kind is recorded. Was Nature more generous
with him than with Marlborough or Welling?
ton, Gustavus Adolphus or Frederick called
the Great? Or was his experience of life a
better preparation than theirs ? And yet they
failed except in war. One ol his unhesitating
supporters, Senator Wilson, in a speech in?
tended to commend bim for re-election, says:
"Before the war, we knew nothing ot Grant.
He was earning a few hundred dollars a year
by tanning hides In Galena." By the war he
passed to be President; and such was his
preparation to govern the great Republic,
making it an example to mankind. Tn us be
learned to deal with all ques lions, domestic
and foreign, whether of peace or war, to de?
clare constitutional law and international law,
and to administer the vast appointing power,
creating cabinet officers, judges, foreign min?
isters and au uncounted army ot office-holder*.
The late Edwin M. Stanton had said to him
on his death-bed: "I have something to say
to you. I know General Grant better than
any other person in the country can know
him. It was my duty to study him. and I did
so night and day, w?en I saw him and when I 1
did not see him, and now I tell you what I
snow; he cannot govern this country."
In presenting his criticisms, Mr. Sumner
selected two typical Instances-nepotism and
glit-taking officially compensated, ?ach abso?
lutely Indefensible in the bead of a Republic,
most pernicious In example, and showing be?
yond question that surpassing egotism or pre?
tension which changed the Presidential office
into a personal Instrumentality, not unlike the
trunk of an elephant, apt for all things, sma>l
aa well aa great, from provision tor a relation
to forcing a treaty ou a reluctant Seuate or
lorcluy a re-election on a reluctant people.
The Tong story ot the appointment ot Incom?
petent relatives was rei1 ?rated, and the Pres?
ident's reluctance to dismiss Casey from tho
New Orleans collectorahlp waa uresested as
the crowning act of infam v. The appoint?
ments of Stewart, Rorie, Murphy and many
others were referred to as instances ol the
President's Idea that the offices are perquisites
of the Presidency, to be conferred for favor or
aa compensation for private gifts.
The military spirit, walch failed in some in?
stances in the effort to set aside a fundamental
law as if it were a transient order was more
successful at the Executive Mansion, which at
once assumed the character of military head?
quarters. To th-: dishonor of the civil service
and In total disregard to precedent, the Presi?
dent surrounded himself with officers of the
army and substituted military for those of civil
Hie, detailing for this service members or his
late staff. The earliest public notice of this
military occupation appeared In the Dally
Morning Chronicle of March 8th, 1869, under?
stood to be the official organ of the adminis?
"President Grant was not at the White
House yesterday, but the folio wi nts members
of hlB staff were occupying the secretaries'
rooms and acting as such: Generals Bab?
cock, Porter, Badeau and Dent,"
This la to be regarded not only in its strange
blazonry ot the Presidential pretension, but
also as the first apparition of that minor mili?
tary ring in which the President bas lived
ever since. Thus installed, army officers be?
came secretaries of the President, delivering
his messages to both Houses of Congress, and
even authenticating Presidential acts as If
they were military orders. And thia system
, bas been kept up for three years, notwith?
standing that the President has also employ?
ed tue regular secretaries in addition, and
that the law ls explicit in declaring that "it
shaif not be lawful tor any officer of the army
ot the United States on the active Mat to hold
any civil office, whether by election or ap?
pointment, and any such officer accepting or
exercising the functions of a civil office shall
at once cease to be an officer of tne army, and
bis commission shall be vacated thereby."
S'.atutea at Large, vol. XVI, p. 319.
Mr. Sumner was very severe upon the un
repub lean subordination of the war depart?
ment to the general-tn-chief. The supremacy
of the civil power over the military should oe
typified in the secretary ot war, a civilian,
from, whom army officers receive orders. Bul
this beautiful rule, with its lesson ot subordina?
tion to the military, was suddenly set aside
by our President, and th* secretary of
war degraded to be a clerk. The 5tb ot March
witnessed a most Important order from the
President, reconstitu? lng the military depart?
ments covering the Southern States, and plac?
ing them under officers of his choice, which
purported to be signed by the adjutant-general,
by command of the general ot tne army, but
actually overlooking the secretary of war.
Tne war departmeut was subordinated to the
general-in-ohief, being Wm. T. Sherman,
who at the time was promoted to that com?
mand. Tala act of revolution, exalting the
military power above the civil, showed Instant
fruits la an order of the genera!, who, upon
assuming command, proceeded to place the
several bureau officers ot the war department
npon bia military stall, so that for the time
there was a military dictatorship with the
President at IIB bead, not merely in spirit, but
In actual form. By-and-by John A. Rawlins, a
civilian by education and a respecter of the
constitution, became secretary of war. and,
though bound to the President bv personal
ties, ne aald "check to the king " Ry general
order. Issued from the war departmeut, March
26,*i869, and signed by the secretary of war,
tbe offensive order was rescinded, and lt was
enjoined that "all official business which, by
law or regulation, requires the action of the
President or secretary ul war will oe submitted
by the chiefs of staff, corps, departments and
bureaus to the secretary ol war." Public re?
port said that this restoration of the civil
power to its rigbtlul supremacy was not ob?
tained without an intimation of resignation
on the part of the secretary.
The President's usurpation In the navy
department, the Indian office, and his dicta?
tion to Congress, as declared by his senators,
was set forth in clear language. The bau
Domingo story was told again, and the uncon?
stitutional assumptions of the President and
ms military secretaries were reasserted in
terms that could not be mistaken. Notwith?
standing the abuse of power, which was Inex?
cusable, Mr. Sumner regarded this business as
more oojectlonable In another sense - as show?
ing the President's contempt and abuse of the
colored race, by interference and oppression
o? the Ha} Hans. But these acts are lu keep?
ing with the President's selfish aud arbitrary
character, as exhibited in bis treatment ol all
who had opposed his policy or his will, and
Mr. Sumner denominated him the President
Mr. Sumner said that the question of duty Is
now presented to the Republican party. It ls
at the mandate of duty tbat we must act, said
be. Do the Presidential preteusioos merit
the sanction ot the party ? Can Republicans,
without departing from all obligations,
whether of party or patriotism, recognize our
ambitious Cesar as a proper representative *
Can we take the leanul responsibility of his
prolonged empire ? With the adoption ol all
these Presidential pretensions, the party loses
its distinctive character and drops Irom its
Amere. Its creed ceases to be Republicanism
and becomes Grantlsm; its members cease to
be Republicans and become Grant men. It ls
no longer a political party, but a personal
porty. For mjself, I say openlv, I am no
man's man; nor do I belong to any personal
We give the closing sentences of the speech
To the Republican party, devoted to ideas
and principles, I turn now with more than
ordinary soll>uude. Not willingly can I see lt
sacrificed. Not without earnest effort against
the betrayal can I suffer Its ideas and princi?
ples to be lost in tbe personal pretensions ot
one mac. Boto the old parties are In a crisis,
with tb'.s difference between the two : The
Democracy ls dissolving; the Republican party
ls being aoeorbed. Toe Democracy ia tailing
apart, thus loosing its vital unity; the Rf pub?
lican party is submitting to a personal iuflIL
ence, tnuB visibly losiug Ita vital character.
The Democracy is ceasing to exist. Tbe Re?
publican pany is losing lia identity. Let the
procesa be completed, and lt will be no longer
mat Republican party which I helped to found
and have al way.t served, but only a personal
party, while instead of mose Ideas and princi?
ples which we have been so proud to uphold
will bo Presidential preten-icue, and 1 un lead
of Republicanism lhere will be nothing but
Political parties are losing their sway.
Higher than party are country and ihe duty to
save it irom Caesar. The caucus is lt last un?
derstood as .a political engine, moved by
wire-pullers, and it becomes more insupport?
able in proportion SB ulrecied io personal
ends; nor ls its character changed when called
a National Convention. Here, iou, are wire?
pullers, and when the great office-holder and
me great office-seeker are one and the same,
lt ls easy to Bee how naturally the engine re?
sponds to tbe central touch. A political con?
vention is an agency aud couvenleuce, but
never a law, least of- all a despotism; and
when lt seeks to Impose a candidate whose
name ls a synonym ol pretensions unrepuoli
can in character and hostile to good ?overn
menr, lt will be for earnest Republicans to
consider weil how clearly party ls s ooo rd mai e
to country. Sucha nomination can have no
Just obligation. Therefore, witb unspeakable
interest will tne country walch the Naiiooal
Convention at Philadelphia. Ii may be an as?
sembly (and such ls my nope) where ideas
and principles are above all personal preten?
sions, aud tne unity of thu puny ts symbol
ized in the candidate, or it may adi auoiher |
to Presidential rings, being au ex pans on ot
the military nm' at the Executive Mansion,
the senatorial nug in this chacnoer and tne
political ring In the customnouses of New
York and New Orleans. A national conven?
tion which is a presidential ring cannot rep?
resent the Republican party.
Mucn rattier would I see the party, to which
I am dedicated, under the Image of a lifeooat
uot to be sunk by wind or wave. How otten
have I said this to cheer my comrades. I do
"not lear the Democratic party. Nothing from
tbem can barm our lifeboat. But I do fear a
quarrelsome pilot unused to tue sea, but pre?
tentious in command who occupies himself in
loading aboard his own unserviceable rela?
tions aud persoual patrons while ne drives
away the experienced teamen who know the
cruft aud ber voyage. Here ls a peril which
no lifeboat can Blaud.
Meanwhile 1 will walt the determination of j
the National Convention, where are delegates
from my own much-honored Commonwealth
wkh whom I rejoice to act. Not without Anx?
iety do I wait, out wuh the earnest nope that
the convention may bring the Republican par?
ty into ancient harmony, saving lt especially
from the suicidal folly of au Issue on tue per?
sonal pretensions of one man.
TUE SIMMS MEMORIAL.
filoqaent Rtmsrki of Judge Aldrich.
We reprint below the eloquent remarks of j
Judge Aldrich, at a meeting of tbe people ot
Barnwell, to organize for ralslug subscriptions
in aid ot the monument to William Gilmore
Simms. We hope the people of tbe State will
take this matter In hand, and promptly accom?
plish tbe work. A subscription of one dollar
each will amply suffice tor the purpose. Let |
Charleston do its share of the work :
Gentlemen of the Committee-It Is very meet
and proper tnat Charleston, the city where
Mr. Simms was born, and wnere he died, bas
Inaugurated the movement lo erect a monu?
ment to his memory.
It ls particularly appropriate that Barnwell,
the district where he lived, and for whose peo?
ple be worked so faithfully, shall second the
movement. It was here, ut his beloved
"Woodlands," that be wrote ihe most of bis
works, and composed the most of lils poetry.
It was here that his children were boru; heie
he wooed their mother, and the broad oaks of |
his favorite home, the tall pines and dense
swamp of ihe Edi a to, under tne deep shade ot
which ne loved to ramble, inspired him with
many of those beautiful fancies lhat he wove
luto poetry, and helped him io finish out many
of the romances wbloh have delighted us In
the past aud will cheer us In the tnt ure.
Our purpose to day ls to do tardy Honor to
the man we did not appreciate while he lived.
A m tn who represented our dis ria IU ibo
Legislature as laiihiuily and earnestly-per?
haps more faithfully and earnestly niau
any one wbo preceded or succeeded him;
wno illustrated our history; created romanced
irom tbe stories and legends of our Revolu?
tion; sung brave and sweet Bongs in tne day
of our tribulation; worked for us day and
night, and when defeat and poverty came, waa
strong aud heroic, never intering a faltering
woro, even on his deaih-bed.
You think you knew bim, but you did not.
( knew bim lutlmaiely and loved him well; tie
encouraged me ia my youth, counselled me In
my manhood, wits lue mend of my ripen age,
and for more than thirty years ot' intimate and
affectionne association never a haran word
w.?s exonuuged between u?. If the people ol'
ibis State could realize tne wealth ef love
which that mm felt for South Carolina in her
prosperity, and which her adversity only in?
creased, they would, lu their poverty, rear a
monument io pierce the clouds. Tuere was a
mme of affection for his native S'aie that no?
thing could exhaust. Neglect comd not dimin?
ish it, praise could not increase lu Oil ! if you
bad heard i?lm talk as I nave tieard him. lu his
moments ot' perfect conti lenee, you would ap?
preciate how be loved Hits State, and loved
these people; but you could not, as I cannot,
I have heard him again and again, in the
sweet spriug-i.iine, under his graud Live. Oak
in front ot "Woodlands," discourse of his oe
loved South Carolina so affectionately, with
such tender earnestness, that lt sounded more
lise the praise of a lover speaking ut his lady?
love. And again I have heard him Inveigh so
vehemeutiy mai li souuded like the indignant
reouke of a fainer io a disobedient cutid. But j
all the while you could noi repress the teeiiug
that he almost broke his hean to utter the re?
And this is the man, our Simm', our neigh?
bor, our tellow-ciiizen, our representative,

us, to whose virtue we design io erect u mon?
ument. Let it be worthy of bim and ot us.
Let it rise in that "City of Ute Silent," which
he dedicated to Us holy purpose in noble
verse. Let lt rise on the bank of that river
which he hos commemorated in song and
story. Let it rise in sound of the "mighty
roar" of that ocean on whlcn he loved to gaze.
Let it rise in reach of the lunn Qt ihe city
where he was born. Let it rise so that me
sweet chimes of St Michael's bells, that warm?

manhood, can reach the eats of mose who
linger around his tomb. Let lt rise a beacon
to the wanderer who approaches ihe "City by

THE GREELEY CAMPAIGN.
SIGNIFICANT ACTION OF THE KEY?
STONE STATE DEMOCRATS.
"As Goes Pennsylvania, Ho Goes the
All accounts from the Pennsylvania State
Democratic Convention at Reading last week
concur in representing tne prevailing feeling
to be decidedly in favor of the Cincinnati
ticket. Tbe nomination ot Mr. Buckalew for
Governor was dictated by that feeling. This,
In our Judgment, is decisive of the Presiden?
tial election. Tne two great Slates ol New
York and Pennsylvania, solid wllh the South,
give two hundred and three electoral votes,
or nineteen more than a majority, and settles
the matter. This leaves out of view New
Jersey 9, Indiana 14, California 6, Oregon 3,
and Connecticut 6-all considered certain
for the Philosopher of Chappaqua-to say
nothing of New Hampshire, Maine, Nebraska,
Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio,
where all the signs have an awful squinting
Greeley-ward. From present indications we
should neither be startled nor astounded If
Mr. Grant did not receive the electoral vote of
a single State.
The Reading correspondent ol the New
York Tribune gives the following cheerful
THE STANDING OF MR. BUCKALEW.
The election of Mr. Buckalew is an undoubt?
ed triumph for the Liberal Democrais. While
he has never publicly expressed himself In
favor ot the Cincinnati movement, he ls gene?
rally knowo to Incline towards lt. and is said
to have privately expressed himself In favor
of an endorsement of Mr. Greeley ?.<? Balti?
more. He ls, In everv se.nrw?, ?Liberal man,
ond win be supported, ti is claimed, by the
Republican element opposed to Hartranlt. His
uominaiion gives the most perfect satisfaction
to all panie?. The CISB men came forward
ir*nkly alter his norain anon was announced,
and expressed their determination to work
heartily for his election.
That he Is me candidate whom the Liberal
Republicans desired ls evident from the fact
tuat several Repub lean papers will support
him. Tne Lancaster Dally Express, the only
Republican dally in that city, the Lancaster
Enterprise and the Greeley Tribune, bom
Republican weeklies, will all heartily support
him. The Philadelphia Enquirer will not
oppose him. The Wayne Unzen and other
Republican papers throughout the Stale will
also support him. A Republican Jrom Lancas?
ter County said this afiernoon that his county,
which ha- given 7000 Republican votes, would
noi poll 2000 agaiuBi Buckalew.
The man who did more than any one else to
secure the nomination of Buckalow was Wm.
A. Wallace, chairman of tbe Stale Democratic
committee. He is strongly In favor of Mr.
Greeley, and lils support of Buckalew ls an?
other Indication of me latter gentleman's posi?
THE OBEELET SENTIMENT.
One of the most significant indications of
to-day has been the remarkably rapid devel?
opment of the sentiment lu favor of Mr. Gree?
ley. A pro m i neut Democrat asserts positively
to-night that a careml canvass has beeu made
of allihe delegates, and tnai there ls a majori?
ty of thirty-three Iii favor of endorsing Mr.
Greeley outright. This majority Is Increasing
every tnomeut. The men whom Mr. Greeley
speaks of very unfavorably In lils American
conflict-Judge George W. Woodward and the
Hon. Francis W. Hughes-are both very out?
spoken lor nls endorsement ut Baltimore, and
are most zealous ot any men here lu advocat?
ing the expediency of giving bim Democratic
support. The fact that these men are willing
lo forget past differences, and even personal
disparagement, has had a powerful effect upon
those who have apposed Mr. Greeley because
of his former abuse ol' Democrats. The reso?
lutions, which will be reported to-morrow,
will refer tne whole question ol' national poli?
tics to the Ballimore Convention. Wulla the
Mends oi Mr. Greeley have a certain majority
they consider lt belier policy not to force any
action upon Hu- convention, and thus disturb
lut harmony. There la no doubt but ihat ibe
delegation io Baltimore will be largely lu
lavor ufa Greeley endorsement.
General Cass .will be nominated by acclama?
tion lu tbe couveui.on to-morrow lo head Ute
delegation to Baltimore. He sa>s mis Is
more acceptable to him than the nomination
for Governor would have been.
The correspondent ol' the Philadelphia Post
(Republican) confirms the same statement:
ENTHUSIASM FOR GREELEY.
There Is no doubt but wnal those who are
opposed to Greeley and lu favor ol a siralght
oin Democratic nomination are considerably
demoralized by the enthusiasm tor i he philoso?
pher. Tney expected the Democratic masses
would respond to tue calls of the Democratic
press, and follow lu the paths laid om by the
Age, ot Philadelphia, ami Po-t, ol Pittsburg,
but they Und iheir hopes are not realized;
that nie Democracy, or ut least the lurge
voting masses of lhat party, feel that the only
salvation for the Democratic party ls in the
success ol' the Cincinnati nominees.
That such Is i he sentiment ol me majority of
the convention there can be no question. It
was demonstrated in tito hotels last night lu
lhe cheers that Fr mk W. Hughes brought
forth, and in thc Convention itself mis morn?
ing, and when Krank Moore tried lo instruct
the delegates to Ballimore lo voie for no man
who was not a straight-out Democrat.
Although i he convention Had au hour previ?
ous adopted a resolution lhat permitted Hie
reading of all resolutions on their production,
when this one of Moore's was brougnt up lt
was met by i he most derisive shouts and calls
from ail parts ot tue convention for the sus?
pension ot IIB rules.
Colonel Forney's Press sadly confesses the
Mr. Greeley's chances ol receiving the en?
dorsement ol' the convention aro steadily
growing, and the. leeliug In his favor now
predominates. It ls probable that mat part
ot the platiorm relating to the Liberal move?
ment md the Ballimore Convention will be
modelled after Hie Richenter resolution, on
whicii only one consiruction-the approval ot
Horace Greeley-eau be placed.
A SP EEC a BY JAR GREELEY.
He Believes In a Paternal Government,
anti Claims to Belong to the School or
Hamilton ana Dc Witt Clinton.
At the Brown University alumni dinner last
Friday night the Hon. Horace Greeley said :
Afr. Chairman and Gentlemen-I proless no
claims to me society of collegiate meo. To
bu sure Amherst has made me a doctor of
laws, und of such ihe world certainly stands
lu great, need. At least the laws need doctor?
ing, and some of ihe law-makers too, as you
all know. This appointment is a recent one,
and I accept thc trust. There is no pay con?
nected with lt, but there ls honor. And ll. ls
well to honor those who honor scholarship.
Al A m ne rs t's suggestion, then, I shall try and
doctor Hie laws, and all good men will aid me
in so doing. Your president proposes to aid
in the education ol the Sonni. What their
needs are we all know, and how much
less than their menus. Universal ed?
ucation is a principle-nay more, a
duiy. All men vote, and all women are appa?
rently likely to, although I wish lt understood
I am not Indorsing the movemenr. Education
ts as necessary as uol.ee or soldiers. Govern
ment should not merely be the means of keep?
ing one man's hand out of another man's
pocket-it some! lines does not succeed In thal
-its alms should be larger; it should rather
put means imo men's pockets. Government
should be a (atherly ben i ticen t protector of i he
people. I lin uk with Hamilton and De Witt
Clinton that the duty of government should
not be merely to reinforce the hangman and
thieituker. Honor everything that honors
intelligence. Colleges are the great fountalns
from which spring an educated people. Edu?
cation is the support ol' u Journalism which is
not the echo of courts and cabinets, nor fos?
tered by official patronage. Au Illiterate peo?
ple could uot support our instil unons. Those
are lonnded in the school-room. When that
tails into disrepute despotism Is not far off.
Honor to everything that diffuses intelligence;
honor to everything that disseminates educa?
tion. Honor them as foundations of free Insti?
tutions and the life of a Iree people.
THE COTTON CRISIS.
The Bears In New York "Cornered" at j
[From the New York Bulletin, Jane 1.J
We have passed a week ef extraordinary ex?
citement and activity In this colton market,
and the prices of yesterday showed an ad?
vance over last Friday, for the present crop,
ot ?H1?C per pound, while the unusual circum?
stance has occurred of all the gr ow tu a being j
quoted at the same value, an anomaly which
maybe attributed to the fact that the "shorts" |
for the present crop have been effectively
"cornered." The meagre receipts for several
weeks past, which go tar to establish the cor?
rectness of the m<nlmum estimates of the
crop, have been attended by au unusually
good demand from domestic spinners
proving, In spite of many protesta
tlons to the contrary, that they are real?
ly deficient In supplies to carry them through
the remainder or the crop year. Besides, most
unexpected.y, the advices Irom Liverpool and
Maucnester have beeu buoyant, snippers,
rlgbi a ong, in competition wita spinners, and
in spite of speculative pi ices eoloiced by the
needs of parties having contracts io fill, have
been daily buyers. Io tact, the chief cause of
the anxiety ol the "shorts" io "cover" bas [
been tne magnitude and steadiness of the
legitimate demand, which, In the face ol the
ll ?ni ?ed receipts, has led to a rapid reduction
of slocks on band. Estimating ihe quantity
ol cotton lo be received at the ports tor the |
remainder of the crop year at 125.000 bales-a
liberal-est?male-we had at the commence?
ment of this week a visible supply about as

WASHINGTON, May 31
The attack upon the Grant administration
by Mr. Sumner la the Senate, to-day, waa
most scathing one in Its exposure of the. cor

The sundry civil apportionment bill was pen

mumlis upon the head of Grant. Such bitter
invective has seldom been beard of late
that grave body, and during Ita delivery the
galleries were crowded by an excited audi

crowded the Senate floor. The effect of tuhi
speech-can hanny fall to lead to a call for au
eXLru session of Congress to repair damages

Tue matter was discussed at ihe White
House ibis eveniug by tne kitchen cabinet,
with appropriate expressions ot tierce auger
against the one-Idea seuaLur. The Preside u
waa aboui to go out lor a drive when the in
telilgeuce reacuea him ou the Wnlte House

Sumner, and he was so demoralized by the
