/ Striking and Significant Coinci?
Parallels between distinguished meu
are frequently made, but it is rare
that they are very close. Special in?
cidents may coincide, but the whole
career seldom. Hence, when such a
.case is found, it is a matter of interest,
not to the curious ??lone, but also to
the Reflecting and thoughtful.
. In an article published several days
ago, vre alluded casually to a close
parallel between the careers of An?
drew Jackson and our present Chief
Magistrate, Andrew Johnson. Not
pursuing the parallel to any extent,
but mentioning the fact'which was so
patent as to excite mark, we were
much gratified in finding the parallel
drawn fully in a recent speech of
Mr. H. B. Helper, the American
Consul at Buenos Ayres. The* simi?
larity of the careers of these dis
tmgdished men will appear, upon
examination, to be wonderfully close,
and reasoning of the future from
the past, we. hazard the prediction
that the name- of Andrew Johnson
.will be regarded by the people with
. the same affection and reverence they
have borne, and will always bear, for
the name of Andrew Jackson. The
coincidence is not the work of chance
merely, but is the result of similar
circninstances acting upon similar
characters, influenced by attachment
to the same, truths, and inspired by
the same incorruptible virtues. It
was thc mission of Jackson to consoli?
date the Democratic elements of the
country, and to demonstrate th* fact
that the improvement and Jiappinezs
of the people were best attained by
adherence to those grand principles
which constituted his system of na?
tional politics. It is President John?
son's mission, we firmly believe, to
perpetuate the demoCratical elements
* " of the country, and thereby 'secure to
the people forever, undisturbed, that
happiness and improvement whjeh
the spirit of Jacksonian Democracy
contends to be the the sole legitimate
end of Government. v This great work
we believe to be entrusted for perfect
and coinplete realization to* the hands
of Andrew Johnson. God speed him j
in the issue!
We give below the parallel so hap?
pily drawn hy Mr. Helper. It will bc
at once perceived that it coidd be pur?
sued much more closely, and in far
greater detail; but it is sufficient to
show that in Andrew Johnson we have
another "Old Hickory," able and
willing to work out to its glorious end
the happiness and advancement of thc
"Not the least among the seventy
odd names of distinguished army anil
navy comma ders from the South,
who have he Mcally proved their de?
votion to the Union in the late terrible
conflict-names which, in a great
measure, constitute the modern roll
of Southern honor-is that of Andrew
Johnson, formerly of North Carolina,
now President of the United States,
who is, perhaps, in many particulars,
more like Andrew Jackson than any
other man in America. They were
both born in North Carolina, of which
State President Polk was also a na?
tive. Both emigrated to Tennessee,
and while residing there were elected
: to the Presidency. The full name of
; each is composed of thirteen letters,
the number being suggestive of the
; original thirteen States, which, more
than three-quarters of a century since,
achieved their independence of Great
Britain. Each has (and very pro?
perly, a showing that their parents
were persons of sensed but one pramo
men, and that is Andrew. The cog?
nomen of each i? o word of two sylla?
bles, and the terminating syllable of
each is son. The prefix of the one
sur-name is Jack, while that of the
Oiher is John. Now Jack and John,
as is well known, signify ene and tho
same thing. It follows, therefore,
that iii Andr%w Johnson we have a
man who is neither more nor less than
Andrew Jackson-the same tough
"Old Hickory," the able and^ncor
ruptible statesman, for whom it is
said the patriotic Dutchmen of Penn?
sylvania have been steadily voting at
every Presidential election during the
last forty years. But the parable does
not end here. B<j^i received appoin t
ments as generauroi militia. Before
becornine: President, each served his"
adopted State first as a Representa?
tivo in Congress, and afterwards as a
Senator of the United States. Both
were called to the Presidency in times
of great national peril; both were
Southern men, and it became tho
duty of both lo deal stringently, and
both did deal stringently with the
deflection and treason of their slave
holding neighbors. One annulled
nullification, and the of?ier suppressed
a gigantic rebellion."

The friends of GEO. D. TILLMAN, Esq.,
respectfully announce bim a candidate for
CONGRESS, at thc ensuing election, in the
Third .District, embracing Orangeburg,
Edgefield, Lexington, Abbeville., Newberry,
Richland and Fairfield. Sept 28 *
To thc Voters of Orangeburg, Edge
fleld, Abbeville, Newberry, Lexing?
ton, Richland ?nd Fairfield..
FELLOW-CITIZENS: After much hesitation,
I have consented to be put in nomination
for your Representative iu the Congress of
the United States. I publish this card, be?
cause the District is so lar,'* and the time
before the election so short that I could
not, if I desired, canvass the District. If a
canvass wcro possible, however, I do not
think it becoming or desirable. In my
I judgment, this is no time for a scramble for
office. It seems to me that no one propea
ly impressed with the solemnity of the
crisis, and the delicacy and importance of
the duties to be discharged, could seek the
position merely for the gratification of per?
sonal ambition. For myself, I declare that
I have no wish but to Borve thc State.
In 178H, South Carolina, through a con?
vention of her people, became one of thc
Uteited States; She remained a member of
the Union until December, 1860, when,
through another convention of ber people,
she repealed the Ordinance of 178% seced?
ed from the United Sta tes, and with cer
' ? '? \ other sister States entered into another
government known as thc Confederate
Government. We believed that we had thc
right to secede and that our security re?
quired its exercise in co-operation wi tn our
Southern sisters. South Carolina, in 3852",
proclaimed by Relearn ordinance the right
of secession. It had long been thc settled
opinion of the State that she was sovereign
ana cntjUed to ?ll tho rights of sovereignty.
She asserted self-government in order to
secure her institut) xas and principles?rom
great evils, believed to be imminent. Se?
cession was in tho nature of a proceeding
guio timel. It was conceived in the spirit of
I self-preservation-not to injure otherstut
I to save ourselves. It cannot be necessary
to say that I am one "of those who believe
that it was an honest effort for honorable
j purposes. The United States Government
' denied the right of secession and waged
war upon the Confederate States, whioh
stood upon the defensive. A terrible war
of invasion and desolation followed, and
finally tho Confederate states weTo over
whehned?by force of numbers and dissolved.
At the emt of tho war the State of South
Carolina found the Confederacy broken up,
her citizens who survived the terrible
ordeal exhausted and impoverished,' her
institutions destroyed, and the whole coun?
try occupied by the military force's of the
United States." Under these painful cir?
cumstances, the President of tho United
States invited the States lately composing
tho Confederacy to re-organize their gov?
ernments and restore their connection with
tho Constitution and Government of the
United States, upon certain conditions, the
principal of which was an acquiesence in
tlie abolition of slavery, which had been
accomplished by the military autli irities.
The State wisely in my judgment, respond?
ed favorably to tho invitation. It is true
that the mere issue of battle does not prove
right any more than did the old "wager ol
battle;" but it does prove power which can?
not be disregarded. A Provisional Gover?
nor was appointed, who called another con?
vention of the people, which has lately
repealed the Ordinance of Secession, and
by an article in the State Constitution,
recognized thc abolition of slavery aud pro?
hibited its re-establishment. By repeal?
ing that of Secession, the Ordinance ol
1788, through which South ('arobina be?
came a member of tho Union, was ipsc
facto revived, and we aro tbis day in tht
Union precisely as we became in 1788 anc
remained up to I860.
Wo arc now in avery anomalous position
Relying upon tho good faith and patriotic
intentions of the President of the Uniter
States, we have done all that was roquirec
of us to restore our c.. relations to th?
Constitution und the Union; but still w?
have not been received into fellowship a1
Washington. That important part of th?
plan of reconstruction remains yet to b<
ac< mplished. It is understood that i
p; r'"y will oppose the President's plan o
rc organizing the States and giving to then
equality of rights, and will insist upon stil
farther dospoding and crushing the Statei
of thc South as conquered provinces. Thii
radical fanatical party opposed our leaving
the Union, and now they oppose our return
ing to it. When we were in the Union, the;
.abused us on account of .slavery. The;
waged war upon us because wo tried i,
separate frwni them, and now that we pro
pose to return without slavery, they ?til
object. In this emergency, the State need
the assistance of all her true raen. Mue:
remains to be done, and not the least is t
secure a prudent, faithful' and patrioti
representation in Congress, to assist an>
forward tho work o" restoration which tb
State has commenced. I arrogate not t
myself fitness to form part of such a rep
resentation, but friends have urged me foi
ward, and if yon are willing to try me,
will give my best efforts.
In some respects, wo aro at the beginnin
of our policy, as if wa \*t;re a new Stat
about to assume new relations with ou
sister States; but wo must never allow oui
selves to forget that in other respects w
are an old State-a Statu having antcc<
dents-a name to maintain and a history t
preserve. Whatever may betide us in th
uncertain future, the past, at least, is HI
cure. South Carolina has never swerve
from tim path of honor, as sh? conceived i
Wo have a record o' which none need t
ashamed; and when any apostate son ?
hers disclaims er disparages it, may si,
cast him out as unworthy of her. " Tl
devotion of every true son of thc Stal
adheres in adversity as wc fl as in pro:
perity-is loyal through evil as well t
through good report; and in the midst <
the greatest misfortunes, "sticketh clos<
than a brother."
After the-delegatioiis from the Souther
States shall have been received into Coi
grcBs, many delicate and impoi taut duti<
will devolve upon them, especially inrefo
enceto the freedmen of th" South, and tl
control which Congress, or a party in Coi
gross, may desire stiU to exercise ovi
them. It may not bo improper, in th
connection, tosay that, whilst I have ?.;
proved thc course; of the State in scekii
to restore lier old relations with the Go vcr
ment of thc United States, it has been up<
tho faith and expectation that the State, ?
soon as reconstructed, is to have enti
control of tho whole subject of her dome
tic affairs. ' The State, and the State alon
must bc left to decide to whom she w
give tho right of suffrage or other politic
rights. A new code noir must be enactt
to protect and govern the population late
made freu-to prevent idleness, vagranc
pauperism and crime. I am not proph
enough to foresee whether wc can juiccee
but I solemnly believe it will be impossil
to live in tho country at all unless thc Sta
bas exclusivo control of the whole subjei
I have hope that this will be permitted, a;
I think it is in accordance with our isl
i eats and true policy Lo 3US*SIB tm- Pre
dont and tlu; ?Democratic party in th?
efforts to restore the States to their po
tion of equality and to give them eqi
rights in tho Government.
With these views, if thc voters of t
District think that I can serve them or t
State in this critical emergency, I will
my best for them; but I have too big!
sense of my own incompetency and of t
dinieulties and responsibilities of the pc
tion, to solicit it by a personal canvas?.
