More Laboren for the Work. .?
From the efforts being pnt forth
by tho Republican party for the po?
litical evangelization of thc South,
one would think that our people,
both white and black, were steeped in
political ignorance and totally unable
to use the few rights left to them.
Tho Nation ni Committee of that party
hr.ff on address, in which they
call upon the foithfnl throughout the |
country to contribnto money to pay
t^e expenses of thoso speakers they
af? sendiog South. They ?'desire to
prosecute a systematic and thorough
canvass- of the Southern States by
the most officient speakers of both
Whilo free speech has full sway SQ
far as these orators are concerned,
jct. Ltoaidra -thc turmoil and excite?
ment generally attendant on large
political j gatherings, there are other
ovils which, moro than likely, will
follow thc efforts now being made to
enlighten tho newly-made voters
hem the Republican stand-point, and
these evils will be increased in pro?
portion to tho frequency of these
moctlo|j?. . At tho present time, the
labor'f?rce of thc South is sufficiently
disorganized, without any increase of
causes to make it more so, which po?
litical agitation is certain to do.
What yre ot the South most need at
this time is quiet and trauquility,
and permission to go on quietly with
the necessary work of raising bread
staffs and provisions. The meetings
which are being held in various parts
of the South necessarily withdraw a
largo amount of labor from the field,
where it is so much needed.
The Now York Sun, iu noticing thc
address referred to, very pithily re?
"We think, on the whole, that thc
project of the Republican leaders for
raising money to be used iu the South,
ia a very good one; but wo respect?
fully suggest, thnt whilo hundreds of
the freedmen aro suffering for bread
which that money would buy, we
havo not heard of any suffering from
a scarcity of stump speeches."
As a general rule, thus far tho
colored pcoplo have behaved very
orderly at these meetings; neverthe?
less, wc do not think they are boue
fltted by so much haranguing. Thoir
rights and privileges have been clearly
defined by Congress, and will be
respected and protected by the white
people of the South, ns well as by the
authorities. If let alone, wo are con?
vinced thnt both rucc-s here would
work in harmony, and heartily, for
the) recuperation of the section which
both claim as their home, and which
sorely needs thoir united efforts to
restore it to prosperity.
The Supreme Court Decidions.
As our readers are aware, wo were
not among those who expected any
political relief from a decision of tho
Supreme Court against thc constitu?
tionality of the reconstruction Acts
of Congress. "We are, therefore, not
disappointed by its action in dismiss?
ing thc suits brought by thc States of
Georgia and Mississippi. These
States had learned and able counsel,
and very powerful arguments were
made in their behalf before the Court,
and tho result has been failure. From
the first, wc have urged action under
the laws of Congress, and now that
tho faintest hope which some enter?
tained having vanished, wc trust that
the work of reconstruction will pro?
gress smoothly, for there need be no
help looked for outside of its require?
It is suited in some of our North?
ern exchanges that Judge Sharkey
has gone homo with tho intention of
arresting thc General commanding in
that military district for treason. We
hope thi3 is only a sensational story,
for, ns we havo said elsewhere, the
Southern States need nothiu<;so muc h
as tranquility, as freedom from agita?
tion of any kind, and such a stop HS
that said to bc contemplated by Gov.
Sharkey would creato a fresh excite?
ment, without the slightest chance of
any benefit being derived from it.
Tho military com mand?is will pro?
ceed with their work of re-organiza?
tion despite any such efforts. The
true policy of the Southern people is
to endeavor to make the best of the
situation and got as speedily back to
Congress as possible on the basis of
thc present law.

Mr. Perry anil ?la Letter?
MKS&ES. T^tTTQKfl: We. JJ ave care.
fully r?ad the tyree letted pahlishell
by theron. B/F. Per*y4kdv||ory to
the citizens ol the StaW iii thtfr prp
jpeut ?nomulous. cottditiou. Thelfe
letters, addressed to the public, are
opeu to criticism without au imputa?
tion of a personal attack. Their con?
ception may hnve been dispassionate,
but they ni-e certainly dogmatical,
illusory, ill-timed*and mischievous,
and the last one is ti mongrel argu- j
ment on both sides of the question,
which, if worth anything at all,
proves that Mr. Pei ry is, ns he has
always been, consistently wrong.
No inspiration of prophecy is claim?
ed, but Mr. Perry continually pro?
phecies, and always affirmatively; his
sooth-saying should enlighten us
from a negative stand-point, aud fore?
tell the ?csult if a majority of the
ballots aro endorsed "No Conven?
tion. " Ho predicts a direful future
if we hold a convention; does this
argue less evil consequences if we
hold no convention? Suppose a ma?
jority of the voters of South Caroli
uo-white and black-coincide with
Mr. Terry, and vote as ho suggests,
will ho.guarantee a short-lived mili?
tary government oyer the State, and
a - moro, speedy restoration to the
Union, with our oTcl Stale Constitu?
tion intact? Can Mr. Perry or any
other sauo man anticipate such a po?
litical future for auy of tho Southern
States? Does he not kuow and ex?
perience thc fact, that South Carolina
is virtually aud practically as much
out of the Union as if secession had
been a success? Is ho, and are we
not all, painfully but forcibly taught
by the occasionally published 'orders
from military headquarters, that we
aro but conquerpd provinces, nt tho
mercy of our conquerors, aud that
State sovereignty is extinct? If such
is not tho case, wherefore thoso mili?
tary sub-divisions of our State? If
we have a singlo individual right re?
served to the State, why can we not,
as a State, opon our courts and exe?
cute the laws of the laud? If we ara
a State, how is it that Gov. Orr con?
tinues to occupy the gubernatorial
chair by mere sufferance? These,
with many others too patent, are
facts, and melancholy facts, which
provo that we as a State may claim
none other than the simple right ol
obedience, if this be a right. If.
then, the former citizens of South
Carolina voluntarily obey tho lnws
imposed upon them, tho enfran?
chised class will Le required to do thc
same. By this means, increased pri
vilcgos will bo given to one class,
while additional rights will be securec
to the other. The reverse of thii
course would create autagouism be
tween the two races, and array tin
"powers that be" in open hostility
against thc whites. Then why "kiel
against the pricks," UH Mr. Perry ad
I vises? True, the Reconstruction Ac
allows the ballot to declare conven
tiou or no convention, in letter, bu
its spirit, and the tenor of all tin
legislation of the recent Congress
I plainly reveals the inevitable neccssi
ty of vital alterations in our Stat
Constitution, which, if not made lr
ourselves, will b > made by Congress
Mr. Perry may say this would bo un
constitutional. Suppose it would be
what is a constitution more than ;
mere parchment to a radical Con
gross? Let the vetoes of the Presi
dent and the recent dodgings of th
Supremo Bench answer this question
Another point. We think Mr. Per
ry has discovered a mare's nest, am
Hushed a bugbear in the plurality
negro-vote, which frightens only him
self. Nearly one-half the Districts o
tho Stato have a white population
equal to, if not more numerous, tba
the black. In those Districts wher
tho blacks are in the majority, doe
! it necessarily follow that the blac
males o vor twenty-one years of ag
Tare moro numerous thau the whit
males of the same age? It one i
eight of the whites before the wn
were voters, we think it qucstionabl
whether ono in ten of the blacks wer
of that ago and sex which would er
titlo them, under enfrnnchisemeul
to vote; for it has always been a coi
ceded fact, that among the negrot
there were more women and childre
thau amongst the white ruco. Whs
is the case to-day? Tho youths c
South Carolina, who have grown int
manhood since 1803, will, in all pr?:
bility, oxcoed the number of votei
lost by disfranchisement and tho wai
Hence, in a general State vote, th
aggregate would only be diminisbe
by tho number of emigrants sine
the close of the war, which would b
a heavy loss, we admit, but nothing
comparatively, to the emigratio
of the blacks. During the war, tkei
must have been a very small per ceul
age of an increase amongst tho mal
blacks, for there was annually a cor
staut iiow of these people to othc
States, nnd much the largest portio
of the black emigrants since thu wu
has been voters. The disparity i
numbers, of all ages and soxes, befoi
the war, was about lOO.OJO in fav<
of tho blacks. I f a census were take
to-day, we believe the white inhab
tauts of South Carolina would nu a
ber 300,000, while the blacks woul
not more than reach 350, Uow. Then
if tho 300,000 whites gave D7,(M
votes, we think it exceedingly que.?
tiouable whether the 350,000 blacl
would give more than 35,000, or, i
most, as many as 37,000. Then, if til
two classes should unfortunately 1
arrayed in political hostility agAirji
linn mi-- -rrrwr? "^Af11* rr* >r nwi
each other-which wuj most fissured
W be the ease, if such men ns Mr.
Perry and Senator Wilson are to be
listened to-cnn not the whites, with
eauat numbers, all the property and
more intelligence, pilot the old ship
of State once more into a haven of
peace and qniot? If they cannot,
then they should yield the helm to
the other class.
But there is nnotber point. Sup?
pose the registered blacks. to out?
number the registered whites in n
States registration; where did Mr.
Perry learn that the blacks would, to
a mau, desert their white acquaint?
ances, and cling to such high-scented
scallions as Wilson, Kelley and others?
We cannot believe it. There is too
much fidelity-call it intelligence, if
you please-among thc masses of the
colored population throughout the ?
State, for them to be caught up and
led astray hy tho clap-trap arguments
of snell demagogues ns these. We
grnut yon, that in our cities, where
so many hundreds of idlers congre?
gate, there may be seeds of discord
sown and evil results follow, but we
cannot anticipate any such conse?
quences throughout the country,
where thc industrious laborers ure in
constant dealings with their humane
employers, nnd by whose example
and advice thoy must be influenced.
At least, we arc willing to risk the
couscqueuoes, and would advise every
true son of South Carolina to be re?
gistered who cnn, and to vote for a
convention. A PLANTER.
No DANGER or CONFISCATION.-Wo j
arc pleased to receive from the New
York lurnea tho assurance that no I
fear could possibly be more ground?
less than the one entertained by many
Southern people that there is danger
of thc confiscation of their property.
There arc, says the Times, "as many
people in tho North in favor of repu?
diating tho national debt as there are
in favor Of confiscating vhc estates of
Southern property-holders. Aud yet
the national credit is as strong as the
Ar.4perren OCCURRENCE AND MIRA?
CULOUS ESCAPE.-During the heavy
shower about 8 o'clock, last evening,
a party of ladies and gentlemen,
seven in number, while waiting for
the street cars, took shelter under
the porch of St. Michael's Church.
While standing under the porch, the
lightning struck and ran down the
lightning rod, spreading along the
ground, knocking down four of the
party, stunning another, but very
providentially and miraculously not
injuring any of them seriously. Mr.
H. H. Williams, jr., was thrown from
the position in which he was stand- !
iug. near tho church door, into the
middle of the street, Hat on his back,
but managed to rise and make his i
way into thc guard house. The fluid
had passed dowu thc left leg of his j
pantaloons, tearing the cloth in strips, \
and bursting the seams on both sides ,
of the boot leg. tearing the sock and |
singing the leg. His brother, Kev. ;
E. F. Williams, suffered almost iden?
tically in the same way, being struck
on the loft leg, tearing open his boot
and sock, and slightly scorching tho
skin, but simply kuocking him down
where he stood. Miss Highborn ex?
perienced a very severe shock, being
knocked down and her gaiters torn
open. Mrs. Williams, wife of Mr.
H. H. Williams, jr., escaped with a
shock and a slight singing of her
dress, which took fire. Miss Burns
received a slight shock. At tho time?
of the occurrence, the party were nil
for a moment or so completely enve?
loped in smoke. The steeplemau was
also knocked over by tho shock.

FATAL EXPLOSION.-On Monday
afternoon, as several freedmen were
engaged in the dangerous experiment
of uuloadiug an old torpedo, which
washed ashore on John's Island, an
explosiou occurred, and five of the
party were instantly killed.
