Tuesday Morning, Sept. 4, 1886.
Relief for tb? People.
Public meetings have been held rrf
many of th? Districts of this State in
relation to the existing pecuniary
difficulties' under which dur people
are now laboring. At all these, we
believe, without exception, the Go?
vernor waa requested to convene a
special session of the Legt;-utnre.
To take this subject, wfthcQther mat?
ters of grave and pressing importance,
into consideration, he. ha?, by procla?
mation, convened" the Legislature to
meet this evening, lu bia message,
the Governor will doubtless recom?
mend such action as the exigencies of
the time? may demand.
But we regret to see br the pro?
ceedings of some of the meetings,
that it is expected the Legislature, as
one mode of relief, will shield the
debtor, for a timo at least, from the
usual legal procesa for collecting just
claims. This is all wrong. Our high
eat State court has, very properly, we
think, pronounced the old "Stay
Law" unconstitutional, and in no
way can the Legislature pass any law
which tends to impair the obligation
of contracts. The Constitution ol
the State and of the United States
prohibit any sn rh legislation, and
there are no possible contingencies
that couid arise which would justify a
legislative body in interfering with n
contract made between individuals.
If they can say io a creditor, yon
must not collect n debt justly due to
you before your debtor is able tc
pay, they can with as great propriety
step in, and nullify private contracts
of any nature. Such legislation
would not be submitted to by thc
people, and yet we hear the thought
less clamor for legislative interven?
tion to deprive one party of his just
rights under a specified contract foi
the benefit of the other. If this tx
not injustice, we do not know whai
other appellation to term it by.
Repudiation is a word not knowi
in the vocabulary of the people o
South. Carolina, and the seeking
?relief, even temporary, from the pay
ment of a jost debt, is nothing bu
repudiation. The honor of the indi
vidual citizen is just as valuable, an<
ought to be equally preserved froD
all stain as that of the State. W
have no idea that tho Legislature wil
attempt to exercise an unconstitu?
tional power, and it is merely to shoi
to those who expecfrelief in tho wa;
referred to, that any such legislation
The petty malice and spite of th
radical party exhibit themselves o
every opportunity. In Philadelphii
it showed itself through McMichae
the Mayor, and the members of th
City Council, in declining the usu*
ceremonies of a public welcome t
the Chief Magistrate of the country
and now we have an exhibition of
in tlie State of New York. Tl:
Senate of that Sta'? is now in sessio
trying a judge of one of their cour
who has been impeached.
On the 29tb, a resolution was pn
posed, welcoming the Presiden
General Grant and Admit al Farrrgu
to New York. A motion was made 1
include the name of Mr. S^wari
which was rejected-ayes 8, n:.ys 1!
A second resolution was offered an
again Mr. Seward's name was e:
eluded, and the absolution, withoi
his name, was adopted by a vote i
16 to 3.
Radicalism, the Richmond Dispat
says, is a bitter principle. It knox
no sentiment of charity-not ev<
common civility. Cold ne iee, ha:
and insensible as marble, and heal
less as granite. Such is a pr?t
good photograph of the principlt
if principles they can lie called,
that political communion, at who
altars minister such men as Frc
Douglas, Thad. Stevens and W. <
Brownlow. To eradicate such
party and policy from the frame-wo
of our Government is the high m

T%B journey ol the .President ?nd
his reception at vari?os points have
been marked with an unprecedented
enthusiasm ou the partof his fellow
cit-zens. As the Richmond lime?
says, there is a significance in these
manifestations of popular afiection,
esteem and veneration, that cannot
be mistaken or misrepresented.
The country is in a political situa?
tion which is without parallel ia its
own history, or that of .any other
nation. In a confederacy of States,
some of its members, dissatisfied with
the way the affairs oi the concern
were managed, undertook to with?
draw from it, and for four years put
forth all their resources, energies and
means to do so; but the remaining
partners proved too strong in muscle
and resources, and accomplished their
object, in bringing back under "the
old flag" those so-called erring South?
ern sisters. After thoroughly subduing
them-ofter compelling them to re?
nounce the heresy (so-called) of seces?
sion, and emancipate their slaves-a
party ?f fanatios in Congress broke
their plighted faith, and refused the
Southern States re-admission to the
President Johnson, carrying ont the
implied and expressed contract be?
tween the General Government and
the seceding States, opened the door
of the Union to the latter on certain
stipulated conditions. The condi?
tions were accepted, but the Presi?
dent found himself unable to give
the representatives from tho South?
ern States their seats in the National
Legislature. From the death of his |
predecessor up to this hour, ho has j
fought with that narrow-minded and j
unprincipled faction for the rights of J
the Southern people and the tho
rough restoration of tho Union.
He is still waging that glorious war-1
fare against the enemies of his corni
try, std it is a matter of high gratifi
cation to observe, in the course of ?
his present tour, how much of the
heart of the people is with him in his
glorious mission. The present pil?
grimage of the President to tho tomb
of Douglas bids fair to give the death?
blow to radicalism. As he says in
the speech wo publish, the country
is coming together, and tho radicals
who are trying to perpetuate their

We trust that Senators and mern
hers will go earnestly to work, and,
after mature deliberation, adopt such
measures as will prove beneficial to
the people of the State. Some mode
of relief for the destitute in the
State, the repeal and modification of
the code, and, perhaps, other mat?
ters, will claim the attention of mem?
bers, and we hope that whatever le?
gislation they adopt may be perfected
with an eye single to the benefit and
welfare of their constituents.
FREE TO DBE.-The Cheraw Adver?
tiser tells the following:
An inquest was held in this place,
on Wednesday last, by James Powell,
Magistrate, acting os coroner, on the
body of Mary, a freedwoman, who
was found dead in her residence, early
that morning. The verdict of the
jury, based on the testimony and a
j post mortem examination, was, that

I Mary was a young woman, the
mother of three children. She came
from the adjoining District of Marl?
boro. It appeared, from tho evidence,
that Bhe had been sick for more than
two weeks and had had no medical
attention, and there was no evidence
that she hod hud anything to eat, but
once, in the last seven or eight days;
and, although there were two freed
women living in other rooms of the
same house, no one saw her from
Tuesday evening until she was found
dead, on Wednesday morning. We
learn that she had gotten employ meut
at three places, at either of which
she could have remained and earned
a living, if she would have worked.

to the sepulchres of popular scorn
and contempt? All the dangerous i

A great and glorious people, though
overwhelmed, nay, destroyed, never

A STEAMER FOR HIOH SPEED.-A |
New York engineer has planned, and
is about building a river steamer,
constructed entirely of Bessemer
steel, the length 450 feet, the breadth I
45, and tho displacement 1,700 tons.
By constructing the steamer upon a ;
peculiar model, which ho has plan- ;
ned. tho engineer claims that with ;
10,000 (indicated) horse-power en?
gines he eau secure a speed of at least '
thirty statute miles an hour. Tho
boat will accommodate 1,000 passen
gera, and is to run, if successfully i
built, between New York and Albany, i
making the trip in five hours. '
Tho National Intelligencer, of the
30th ult., says:
United States Government bonds
are still on the rise iu European
money markets. The last quotation
of five-twenties, by the cable, was 72,
with an advancing; tendency-a rato
higher than they commanded the day
before. Respecting the differences
between gold and currency here, and
adding the usual rates of exchange,
the fi ve-twenties are now os high
abroad os at home. Thc reported de?
mand for our Government securities
in Paris may have boen premature,
or a mero stock-jobbing report. We
may expect speculative reports for
some time, until responsible menean
manage the news department of the
Atlantic telegraph. Any stock-jobber
in New York may direct his agent
abroad, by a private telegram, to
make a report by ocean cable that
will affect stocks on this side.
But there is little donbt that our
Government and State securities will

I In 18fi0, on the eve of our domestic
troubles, the United States sixes
stood firmly ut 117. This was our
answer to all croaking about a civil
war. It shewed the confidence of I
our Northern capitalists in the sta?
bility und responsibility of the Go- \
vernment. So, now, our public
credit is on the advanoe everywhere,
for the reason that everywhere our
ability to maintain our credit and pay j
off the debt within thirty years is
admitted. The question of financial
discredit as the consequence of radi- j
cal rule has hardly yet been brought j
promineutly to financial notice. But
we observe that in some very intelli?
gent and discreet Republican quar?
ters the subject begins to claim at?
tention. Tht; New York Evening Post,
though radical in regard to some
points of public policy, is conserva
ti ve as regards the public peace and j
public credit. But the radical rulers
are j ust as desperate and as reckless,
and as much bent upon general mis?
chief, as thc rebel leaders of the j
South were in 1861. They will not
stop short of measnres, if they suc?
ceed, that will necessarily involve the
country iu "another war," and de?

LiAnrLiTY OF HOTEL KEEPERS.
The Court of Appeals of Maryland
has recently decided an interesting
case. The law of Maryland provides
that a hotel keeper may protect him?
self from liability for ' money, plate,
and jewelry," by requiring his guests
to deposit such articles iu his care.
The proprietor of the Maltby House,
ol' Baltimore, was sued for ninety
dollars in mouey, and the value of
a watch, watch-guard, and pocket?
book stolen from agilest. The court
decided that the hotel keeper must
pay for the stolen articles, saying
that a guest must be allowed to keep
1 about him such an amount of money
I as was necessary for his personul
expenses at the risk of the proprietor,
and that the other articles must be
paid for also, because they were
neither "money, plate nor jewelry."
i CAULK OPERATIONS.-The New
! York Express remarks that some of
the operations which have already
resulted from the use of the Atlantic
telegraph, are sufficient to show the
immense changes in thc commercial
relations of Europe and America,
l which will bo brought about through
I that channel. For example: A firm
; in Liverpool, on Tuesday last, sent
an order to a house in this city for a
cargo of grain; on fhe following
Thursday, thc New York firm sent
back a telegram that the grain had
been purchased, put on board ship,
and that the bills of lading would be
forwarded by tho steamer of Satur?
day, and the amount drawn for. In
ordinary times it would hnvo re?
quired at least six weeks to do as
much as this; while in th* old times,
before steamship, it would have re?
quired full three months.
SMALL CONSCIENCE ITEMS.-The
Secretary of the Treasury and Gen.
Spinner aro very frequently annoyed
of late, aud the time of the clerks in
the Department is consumed by idle
persons transmitting communications
in various styles of pleasantry and
styles of orthography and etymology,
eoutainiug one cent, or from that to
twenty, for the conscience fund. All
of these contributors make the
request that the receipt of the amount
bo acknowledged in tho city news?
papers. The Treasurer of the United
States has just ordered that, here?
after, no sums less than oue dollar
shall bo separately acknowledged,
but shall be consolidated for a month,
and a warrant for the aggregate
amount drawn at tho end of the
WASHINGTON'S ORDER. -George
Washington would not allow the
Tories of tho Revolution to be plun?
dered. Wonder how many of our
modern heroes ever read this order:
Geueral Washington strictly for?
bids all the officers and soldiers of the
Continental army, of thc militia, and
all recruiting partie.", plundering any
person whatever, Tories or others.
And it is expected that humanity and
tenderness to women and children
will distinguish brave Americans, con?
tending for liberty, from infamous
savages, whether British or Hessians.

No mah is more ready than myself
to do justice to New England, for all
that Now England deserves. I respect
her intelligence, but deprecate her
.selfish ness and her fanaticism. I
admire her energy, her ingenuity,
and her enterprise, but I cannot com?
mend her egotistical intolerance, nor
that sordid selfishness which would
impoverish every other ?State, and
r?ople, for her own.pe?nliar benefit,
am proud of the names of Greene,
of Warren, of Starke-of ' the Han?
cocks, thc Adamses, the Websters,

Ch oates: but I should hesitate- long
before 1 could commend, as models
of statesmanship or patriotism, the
Sumners, the Wilsons, the Garrisons,
and the PhilHpses, who. as the
agents of the lordly manufacturers,
control our country. Then, when I
say New Englaud, I mean tho extor?

breath of the upas-tree, contami?

In u late speech in the Senate, by a
distinguished Ohio Senator-himself
a native of our State, but an offshot
from New England-while asking to
bc allowed to phtee tho offering of his
submission upon the footstool of New
Eugland, he truthfully remarked:
"Now England is at this moment
not only*represented by her twelve
Senators, but by six or eight more,
who are sons of New England, who
moved to the West, und carried with
them their religion, their principios,
and, in some cases, their wives;
whore they did not, we provided
wives for them. They came back
herc as Senators, and now stand here
to vote New Eugland ideas and New
j England principles." [Applause.]
Let us consider for a moment this
1 compliment paid to New Eugland by
I an Ohio Senator. From whence
came the Hon. Oolnmbus Delano, j
J Thaddeus Stevens, Benjamin F.
: Wade and Judge Trumbull?
j They are, one and all, the native-1
' born children of New Englaud, and :
! they have gone to Congress, not to !
I represent Ohio, nor Pennsylvania, I
? nor Illinois, but, in the expressive j
I language of Senator Sherman, "to
j vote Now England ideas and New
j England principles."
And so completely is New Eng
I land enthroned, so firmly is our vas- \
I salago established, that we, men of
; Ohio, are taxed to make a gift of '
: bounties to Hie cod fishers of Massa
! chusetts and Connecticut. And in
I return, generous New England, un
! selfish New England, condescends to
' impose a duty of a few cents per
j pound on wool, while she, with a
I modesty only equalled by her disinte
' rested philanthropy, is satisfied with
! a hundred percent, for herself!
I Then, Ohioans-men of the young

manhood, to your self-respect, to
your love for your home-laud, to

of New England have thrown around

that the lively business of the city would

necessary to improve it, that this would be
an adequate security for thc lender. Seve?
ral of our citizens have been to the North,

bankers and brokers, upon the same term*
which it is proposed to do now; but as
these were isolated casca, and did not have
