l in Position of Sc.??m Caiol?ua.
We publish, this morning, by re?
quest ol that body, tho official pro?
ceedings of the ; Convention of dele?
gates from the various Districts of
this State, which met in Colombia on
the 1st instant '
From this official record, our rend?
ers, outside of the State may learn
correctly tho true position of the
people of South Carolina at this junc?
ture of our political affairs. No State
in the Union has been more misrep?
resented, slandered and wilfully be?
lied, than South Carolina, and it is
highly-proper, that this authoritative
record should go forth to repel these
slanders and misrepresentations. The
position of her people, as thus an?
nounced, is clear and unmistakable,
and he who hereafter may seek to
question their loyalty to the Govern?
ment, or their adherence to the great
principles of the Constitution, would
not blush to defame the virtue of his
There are no long-winded resolu?
tions, no discussion of past issues, no
re -affirmation of doctrines which have
been said to be peculiar to tho poli?
tics of the people of South Carolina.
The simple action of the Convention
is embraced in these half dozen lines:
"That this,.Convention approves
the restoration policy of President
Johnson as opposed to the radical
policy of Congress, and that we ac?
cept the invitation to unite with the
conservatives of the country in the
National Convention to be held at
Philadelphia, on the 14th of August."
Such is the "platform," such the
only declaration of principles put
forth by the people of South Carolina
in Convvntion assembled. Their most
prejudiced political enemies can find
no fault or flaw in this mauifesto
comprised in a single sentence. Those
who expected bluster and a meaning?
less string. bf political declarations
have been disappointed; and those as
well, among her friends and admirers
who expected what they might call
"a manly declaration of principles,"
have also been disappointed; but the
disappointment of the latter will, on
calm reflection, give place to appro?
bation of the line of policy adopted.
The fact is. these representatives of
the people were delegated for a ccr
lain purpose-their constituents de?
sired to bo represented in the Phila?
delphia Convention, and they did no
more than to provide for such repre?
sentation and declare their approval
of the policy of the President. In
carrying out the first part of their
duty, the delegates, in selecting our
representatives, have chosen the right
kind of men, some of the ablest and
most conservative in the State-men
who will discluirge the trust commit?
ted tr> them in such a manner as will
command the approval of those who
confided in them.

The thousand stories of cruelty to
Federal prisoners of war meets an
official refutation from a quarter
whose authority will hardly be gain- j
sayed. It comes from the War De?
partment, in reply to a resolution of
tho House of Representatives, asking
for the number of prisoners of either
side held and that died during the
war. The department makes the fol?
lowing report: Number of Union pri?
soners, South, 260.940; number of
rebel prisoners, North, 200,000.
Inion prisoners died, 22,570; num?
ber of rebel prisoners died, 26,400.
From this statement the calculation
may be made, that two Union pri?
soners died in Southern prisons out
of every twenty-three; and two Con?
federates in Northern prisons died
out of every fifteen.
But this official refutation of base
slanders of alleged cruelty at Ander
sonville and other Southern prisons,
comes too late to prevent Wirtz from
au ignominious death, or Major (lee
from months of military persecution.
The falsity of all the allegations is
more clearly demonstrated, when we
remember the Northern soldier was
poorly acclimatised for this confine?
ment iu a Southern latitude, which
fact, taken in connection with tho
difference in the mortality indicated
in the above report, is of itself the
most complete vindication of the
character for humanity claimed by us
for Confederate officers, and puts to
flight all such testimony as hung
Capt. Wirtz and punished others.

I Ther# ia, perhaps, no ^publishing
boase in thj?. coantrjf which, lia*
pocketed more of tbe money Of the
Southern people than thatT>f Harper
?fe Brothers, New York, and yet their
regular periodical publications exceed
any other in Yankee literature in
their studied malignant vinification
of these same Southern people.
J This is a strange inconsistency, nor
, can we account for it in any way, and
the inconsistency becomes moro
glaring when Ave know tho fact that
after all we have suffered as a people,
that a support is still given to these
periodicals by Southerners, who turu
a deaf car to tho application of
agents from the offices of DeBow's
Review, the Crescent Monthly and the
elegant weekly family papers which
have been started at the South since
the close of the war.
It is a burning shame, and a severe
reproach to the patriotism, literary
taste and appetite of our people, that
Harpers' WeeJdy should find a single
purchaser in the Southern States.
Of all the radical papers published,
none can equal this in the coarseness
of its abuse aud misrepresentation of
the Southern people, both in its let?
ter press and its disgusting wood
cuts; a? nu exchange says, "there is
nothing amoug us too sacred to be?
come the objects of their coarse
satire and heartless burlesque. Week
after week they traduce all whom we
love among the living, aud pollute, by
their slimy touch, the memory of all
whom we cherish among the dead."
It has been well and pithily said, that
had this disgraceful sheet been pub?
lished during our Savour's stay upon
earth, it would have given its reader.?
a burlesque of the miracles and ii
caricature of the crucifixion.
But not alone in their monthly au ?J
weekly publications do these bast
publishers poison the minds of hun
dreds and thousands of reader;
throughout the country, but in even
publication of a more perninnen
character that issues from the press
The Now York J len iii / gives a seven
criticism of one of thc most recen
of these, eutitled a "pictorial histor;
of the rebellion;" we presume, a re
ha.--h of their weekly lying carica
tures. The Herald says, in relatioi
to the pictorial part, of this work:
"With rogart! to the so-called poi

How can tho Southern people stq

may appear a waste of paper and in
to thus repeatedly admonish tl
Southern people against the intrt
duction of snell publications int
their honseholds. But, as jon rmi

this, whatever ovil may befall fro

Tho Richmond Time** is jubilant
over the ton? and spirit of the press
of the South at this time. It mys:
There never was a time when the
Southern press was performing its
duty to the South more vigilantly,
fearlessly and usefully than now.
The evidence of this ability, fidelity
aud efficiency can be found in the
curses, imprecations, groans and yells
of all the detected, flagellated and
exposed petty military tyrants, un?
worthy judges, thievish cotton agents,
and mousing agents of the Freed?
men's Bureau, who were turned loose
to prey upon the Southern people
before and at tho close of the war.
But for tho press, these harpies would
havo stripped our people as bare as a
pack of cayotes devour the carcass
of a buffalo.
But the press has been the terror
of these rapacious reptiles throughout
tho Southern States, from the Rio
Grande to the Potomac. "Who does
not know that the agony of unen?
durable suffering and torture from a
hundred keen pens made Underwood
bej^ow like a half-flayed bull of Ba?
shan, when he was last here.
How very refreshing are the ana?
themas of tito Hamiltons, the Brown
lows and the Holdens, who suffer the
same merciless tortures. A Southern
editor feels tho grim joy of a veteran
grimalkin at thc squeaks of the rats
in tho drawers of the Freedmen's
Bureau, when they are hunted down
and caught stuffed with rations and
Tho latest tribute to the usefulness
of the press is the denunciation of
the able journals of Memphis by the
mendacious and thoroughly unscru?
pulous committee o? Congres3 which
was sent to that city to manufacture
copitnl for the radicals out of the
"negro riots." Messrs. Gulliver,
Munchausen and Sinb;t<l, of tho com?
mittee, expected to have an easy
time at Memphis concocting slanders
aud libels upon the Southern people.
But the Memphis journals straight?
way fell upon these emissaries of Ste?
vens and roasted them elaborately
every morning. lu their report, they
are almost as abusive of the Memphis
papers as the tortured Underwood
was of the loyal press of this city.
Tiie unanimity with which these dis
turbers of tho peace of the nation,
and most unscrupulous revolutionist'
and disunionists, abuse the patriotic
press of the South, isa splendid tri
bute to its efficiency. When a South
ern editor chips a blister-plaster be
tween the shoulders of one of thes<
malignants, ami hears a bowl of pail
from the patient, ht) knows that tin
blister is drawing lindy. In sud
eases, it is best to "establish a raw,'

The following brief summary will
inform our Maden, at a glance, thc
canse of the late riot in New Orleans:
1. In the year 1864, under Federal
patronage and support, a portion ol
the people of Louisiana, within th?
then Federal military lines, held o
convention by delegates, for the pur?
pose of altering tho Constitution ol
the State to conform to the chang?e
circumstances in which they .jere
placed, and to set on foot a penna
neut loyal State Government, in con
tradi8tinction to that existing at th?
2. This the convention accom
plished, providing for a general eleo
tiou of State officers, from Governoi
down-whereupon, having doue al
that it was called upon to do, ad
journed. It had spent its force, an<
was no more a living, vital body thai
that which adopted the first Consti
tution of the State.
3. When the Congress propose?
the pending amendment to the Con
stitution, it was thought necessar
by the Louisiana radicals to conven
this defunct convention to ratify il
It is well known that, if this dea
body had had life, it would have bee
unlawful for it to act in the premia ?
since the amendment was exp rossi
referred to the Legislatures cf tu
4. Tho president of the conveutio
was asked to call it together, but rt
fused. A few of the members, bu
not a quorum, met and tried to re-oi
ganize by the election of a president
This failed, for lack of numbers t
give it respectability.
5. They next called upou tho Gi
vernor to order electious to fill vac ai
cies. The Governor was absent au
could not be found for several weeki
but finally turned up, and consente
to order the elections as demande.!.
?. In the meantime. Judge Abel
ot' a Now Orleans court having crim
nal jurisdiction, in charging the gran
jury, instructed them that the men

capacity, Judge Abell was arrested 1

The following, from tho Washing?
ton Republican, (tho President's or?
gan,) in its issue of Wednesday lust,
is pretty plain talk, and indicates the
policy that will bo adopted in thc
event of any attempt to defraud the
Southern States of their votes in the
next Presidential election :
It will be recollected by our readers
that we intimated a suspicion several
months ago that the radical members
of Congress had entered into a con?
spiracy against the Constitution to
shut out the electoral vote, in 186b,
of certain Southern States, and that
about a month ago we stated more
clearly what it was. As no Senator,
Representative, or radical newspaper
has presumed to deny the allegation,
we take it to have been true.
lt is n plot that cannot be carried
out with impunity. We do not be
Ueve it can be consummated without
bloodshed. At all events, if the elec?
toral votes of tho States thus unlaw?
fully excluded will elect a candidate
for President who shall not be elected
without them, the people will find a
way to have them counted, by put?
ting tho proper President elect into
the Executive office, and maintaining
him there by force, if necessary.
The exclusion of ten States from
representation in Congress goes to
the utmost verge of public forbear?
ance. No further outrage can, in our
opinion, be superadded to it, without
breaking the public peuce and expos?
ing tito country to the horrors of
another civil war, in which the peo?
ple of the excluded States would have
the sympathy of the civilized world.
GENERAL GRANT ON THE BUREAU.
The Washington correspondent of
the New York Herald writes :
A report was made to the Freed?
men's Bureau, a short time ago, by
an agent nt Annapolis, Md., of inter?
ferences with the operations of the
Bureau at that place by the white
citizens. General Howard presented
the report to Gen. Augur, command?
ing this military department, and
asked for a company of white troops
to assist the agent in the discharge of
his official duties. General Augur re?
ferred the matter to General Grant,
with whom General Howard had a
personal interview. General Grant
declined to furnish the troops, on the
ground that Maryland was not one of
the lately insurrectionary States, in
which tue tinny is required to sup?
port the Bureau, and, moreover, that
lie was opposed to the interference of
the military wherever it could be
avoided, such interference only tend
ing to increase the evils it attempts
to allay, and excites the people t
SHERMAN'S FINALE.-The National
Intelligencer, of Thursday, says:
Lieutenant-Genend Sherman was
serenaded, last night, by the band of
tho Twelfth United States infantry.
in response to the calls of the persons
congregated, he remarked that he was
a stranger here, and had nothing to
say to them, and had no speech to
make. He said his home was in St.
Louis, where li? would be glad to sec
them all, or on the plains, where he
, purposed shortly to go. He thought
\ the less a man said iu Washington,
the better, and, us lie was his own
best friend, lie would say nothing
more than thank them for the com?
pliment that had, on this occasion,
been conferred upon him.
THE SMALL THINGS OF CONGRESS.
Congress, while it bas been exceed?
ingly liberal in voting heavy appro?
priations for jobs out of which its
radical friends can make money, has
exercised a most parsimonious spirit
in dealing with such little matters as
an appropriation for the improve?
ment of the President's house and
other things ol' a similar character.
Having occupied most of its time in
abusing and obstructing Mr. John?
son, its latest act of meanness was
striking out the trilling sum for the
repairs of his mausion, while millions
have been thrown away for the bene?
fit of the negroes and the national j
bank monopolies. This kind of eco?
nomy will bo fully understood at the
fall elections.-New Yaric Her ah I.
Head Centre Stephens has address?
ed a document from his headquarters
in New York to the Fenian Brother?
hood, in which ho says that tho Fe?
nians in this country are of right sub?
ordinate to the organization in Ire?
land, and that they will do mischief
instead of good unless they work
solely to give aid to the organization
