Wednesday Morning, Aug. 15, 1886.
The Freedmen's Bureau.
Tho disclosures made in the final
report of Commissioners Steedman
and Fullerton, an abstract of which
we published yesterday, must cer?
tainly arouse the people of the coun?
try, and convince them that if ever
such an institution was necessary for
the protection of the colored people
at the South, its usefulness is at an
end, and that it has now become an
evil to all classes, and especially to
that class it was professedly instituted
As the National Intelligencer, in pub?
lishing the full report, says, "it is
shown that the Bureau has become a
pregnant source of local strife, a se?
rious obstacle to the social advance?
ment and self-dependence of the
freedmen, and generally a means of
imposing a system "of oppression in?
finitely worse and more onerous than
the slavery from which, through the
fire and carnage of civil war, they
have been emancipated."
Tho Intelligencer adds:
"Tho careful perusal of their report
must carry conviction to the mind of
every honest friend of the freedmen,
that tho discontinuance of the Bu?
reau is imperatively demanded hy
every consideration of right, justice
and humanity. It was already appa?
rent to every true lover of the coun?
try uninfluenced by partisan blind?
ness, that the institution had become
a frightful incubus upon tho Govern?
ment, a Fourco of plunder to greedy
and dishonest officials, and a curse
more withering than slavery itself to
all classes of people in the South,
without distinction of color, but par?
ticularly to the freedmen, whose
benefit is mado the pretext for the
maintenance of the Bureau."
But beyond this, there are still
greater evils than mere fraud and op?
pression. The radicals havo seized
this institution and made it a politi?
cal engine, by the means of which
they intend to carry out their doc?
trine of equality of the races, univer?
sal suffrage, kc. We behove that the
disturbances at Memphis and New
Orleans might be traced to this
agency, manipulated as it has been
by designing politicians. One proof
of this is that in districts where there
are no Bureau officers, both races get
on together harmoniously, while in
large cities, where the freedmen are
numerous, and the Bureau is en?
throned, there has been found to be
mere or less trouble.
We hope and trust tlrat the people
of tho North, who with us are heav?y
taxed to support this worse than use?
less institution, will, by their votes
and by direct instructions to theil
representatives in Congress, have thc
odious measure repealed, and leave
the freedmen to their natural protect?
ors-those among whom they were
born and raised, and whoso inter?s!
as well as inclination will constrain
them to deal fairly with them.
Opening of thc Campaign.
The result of the election in Ken?
tucky is of great significance, and is,
wo trust, tho first well-won victory
against radicalism, to be followed bj
others throughout the West mu
North-west. Although the electioi
was only for a minor State office, yet
for months past, the papers of tin
State gave indications that the masse:
on either side were roused, and tim
tho strongest efforts were put forth?
in speeches, in electioneering don?
ments, and in the absorption of nearl;
nil the reading space in the newspa
pers-by both sides.
The right has signally triumphed
and the majority for the conservativ
candidate will probably foot up 50,
OOO. It is an unanswerable rebuk
to the fanatics in and ont of Con
gress, and will strengthen tho hand
of the good and true men in th
other States, where elections have yt
to be held. Ono important point d<
serves to be noted in this electioi
and that is, that the vote of the dil
banded soldiers must have been give
for the conservative ticket. The Ne
York News very properly says of th
"Let it guide tho action of th
Philadelphia Convention, and th
victory in Kentucky will provo th
prelude of a conservative triump
equally complete in tho great nations
battle-ground to which the politic!
hosts are marching."
Tho Confederate dead who fell i
the battle of Beech Grove and Hoo
er's Gap, in Coffee County, Tenne
soe, have been taken up and burin
by citizens of that section, who i
tend to erect a monument to the
The Chieago Tribune, one of the
ablest and most influential of the
Western radical journals, has -written
a strong article, indicating the pur?
poses of thc dominant Congression.nl
faction, in which is the following
"It seems probable luat the South
will not nccept the mihi terms offered
to them in tho constitutional amend?
ment. If they do not, it will bo the
clear duty of the present Congress to
lay the axe at tho root of Andrew
Johnson's Provisional Governments,
and re-organize them on the basis of
impartial suffrage. There will bc no
war of races then. Instead of it,
there will be respect for law, and sub?
mission to it. Geireral Grant knows
how to establish and execute any?
thing which the law-making power
may enact, without leaving any war
of races in his track."
As the New York Times says, thero
does not seem to bo much ambiguity
about this language. This threat,
like others we have recently had
occasion to call to the reader's atten?
tion, means simply that, if they do
not succeed in binding tho South
huud aud foot to all their measures,
they will, if they can, commence a
revolution, backed by tho military
power of the Government-that is, if
they can get the co-operation of tho
Lieutenant General of tho army in
carrying out their infernal schemes.
But will they get this? No. As
the New York Express pithily re?
marks: "Gen. Graut also knows how
to bo obedient to the constitutional
Commander-in-Chief of the army and
navy of the United States." But aro
we of the South never to have peace?
Our people are anxious for it; they
aro worn out with partisan polities,
and desire nothing but to be loft
alone in the work that is the most
important to them-the rebuilding of
their wasted cities, the retrieval of
their shattered fortunes, and the de?
velopment of all these resources
which God has vouchsafed to them.
Such threats and emanations from
the leading organs of the radical
party show the animus of tho faction,
and what they would do if they had
the power. Indeed, all hope would
be gone for the people of the South,
if they had not the Presideut to rely
upon in these dajTs of strife aud bit?

NATION AL EXPRESS AND TRANS. Co.
By the courtesy of. the press I have
been informed of a telegram to be
published to-morrow in respect to
this Company. Defeated iu the
courts of Virginia, and having en?
countered a severo check in their ef?
forts before Judge Underwood, at
Alexandria, tho enemies of tho Na?
tional have resorted to a new device.
On tho 2Gth of July, 1866, a certain
Josiah Reynolds, for tho first time,
became a stockholder of tho Com?
pany by the transfer to him of fifty
shares of stock, the whole amount of
contributions on which have been
$750. Hardly had this (amateur) re?
former gotten his scrip before he
went to Norfolli to wind up the Na?
tional. No injunction can be had in
the United Slates Courts until notice
is served on the adverso party. No
such notice has been served; when it
is, the National will bo heard ou the
motion for the injunction, and will
again let i*s secret foes know that it
is alive and strong enough to light its
Tho Board of Directors have beeu
in session in Baltimore for several
days past, and, after a careful exami?
nation of the affairs of the Company,
they, as ?"ell as many of tho stock?
holders in Baltimore, have become
well satisfied ?hat the enterprise is an
accomplished success, and a number
of tho most prominent business men
of this city have united iu endorsing
thc Board's circular to the stockhold?
ers, urging them to sustain the Com?
pany, pay promptly the necessary
contributions, and not to allow the
enterprise to be crushed in the hour
of its .success.
In conclusion, I will simply say
that the National, sustained as it has
been and is by true ?ind responsible
stockholders, will still live on, in
spite ot* ass.uilts, secret or open.

RADICAL BOASTS CONCERNTNO THE!
FALL ELECTIONS.-Leading radical
orators ami journals profess to be
very sanguine of carrying tho coining
Fall elections by something like the
Union Wiir-majoritiesof 1861. Thus,
the Chicago Tribune prophesies that
thev wid carry Ohio by 40,000, In?
dialla by 35,000, Illinois by 45,000,
and ali the Western Stales East of
the Rocky Mountains, by un aggre?
gate majority of over 200,000. Rut
those radical prophets arc counting
their chickens before tiley are hatch?

cal revolution are at work. The wal?

of 1865, in t lie absence of a neu- or?
ganization of parties upon new ;
issues. Now such an organization is
in progress, an>l * 11 o parties and
issues of 1*60 will be very apt to re

importance. All who can should attend.
PROMOTION.-CoL J. D. Green, thu gen?
tlemanly and efficient Commandant of this
Poat, wo are pleased to leam from the
Army awi Navy Journal, has been pro?
moted to the rank of Brevet Brigadier
General in the regular army.
We have been requested by B. D. Benn,
Esq., Secretary, to state that the pews in ^
the new Washington Street Chapel will be <
rented ou Wednesday afternoon, 15th inst.,
at 5 o'clock p. m.
NEW COTTON.-Colombia is not behind,
hand. We were shown a fine sample of
cotton, yosterday, grown by Alderman
Hitchcock, on his farm near the river.
The staple is fine.
We are indebted to Messrs. Townsend A
Norfh for an indispensable adjunct to a
writing-desk-a combined paper-cutter
and hol^'T. It is only necessary to give a
casual glance at their stock to discover
many other tasty and usttful articles.
UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT.-Mr. A. M.
Hunt discovered a "gentleman of African
descent" attempting to enter his hotel,
through a window, at an early hour yes?
terday morning. He fired at him, but un?
fortunately mibsed bis aim, and the darkey
made off-minus a weather-beaten tile;
which we have no doubt he can recover by
sending his address to the guard bouse.
TUE BCBNINO OF COLUMBIA.-An inter?
esting account ol tho "Sack and Destruc?
tion of tho City of Columbia, 8. C.," has
just been issued, in pamphlet form, from
tho Phoenix power press. Orders tilled to
any extent. Single copies 50 cents.
FKEE OF CHAEGE.-It will bo seen from a
notice in another column, that our enter?
prising and liberal fellow-citizen, Col. T.
S. Nickcrson, has added another attraction
to tho many which now induce travelers to
visit his popular and weil conducted hotel;
and that ia, that passengers will be con?
veyed to aud from any of the depots free
of charge. This is truly liberal at this
time, when the purses of travelers gene?
rally are not over heavily laden.
SUPPOSED MUM EREK ABRESTED.-On
Monday morning last, oar vigilant and ef?
ficient chief of police, arrested a freedman
named Lum Jones, formerly of Newberry,
on suspicion that he was of tho gang who
murdered Mr. Laue, of that District. Since
then, however, Mr. Green has found on the
negro the watch which was taken from
Mr. Walker, recently murdered near Ches?
ter C. H., and it is to bc presumed that the
prisoner was involved in both murders.
Only about $4 in money has as yet been
found in his possession.
KEPOBTED DOUBLE MUBDEB.-A painful
rumor was in circulation, yesterday, that
the two daughters of Ile v. Mr. Porter, a
Methodist minister, were murdered, by two _
freedmen, near Doko, on Sunday afternoon
last. The particulars of the terrible re?
post, so far as we have heard, is that the
young ladies went to a Baptist protracted
meeting, at the above place, and not re?
turning, at a late hour, search was made
for them, when they were found in the
woods, a short distance from tho road
one of thc unfortunate girls being quite
dead, and thc other just able to articulate
"two negroes," when she, too, expired.
