Til? National Bank System.
Tho New York Herald, ia relation
to these banks, suggests that Con?
gress should deprive them of the
power to issue notes on the boude ol
tja? United States deposited by them
with the Treasurer, to Seoure the
final redemption of their issueB, and
that the Treasury should redeem the
bonds with new issues of legal tender.
Tho Herald thinks the legal tenJex
would be a better currency than the
National Bank notes, and that the
Government should be relieved from
the necessity of paying interest for
tho benefit of tho National Banks on
the bonds in its own oustody.
A glance at our new system ol
* banking may not bo uninteresting.
When it was started, the Governmenl
was in need of money to support thc
?current expenses of tho war. It of?
fered to capitalists and bankers to paj
a handsome interest upon loans to b<
secured by bonds of the U.nitoc
States. It offered, farther, to giv<
banking facilities to thoso who woulc
deposit a certain proportion of it
.own bonds to secure the oireulatioi
of notes to be issued by the banks i
authorized. It provided strict lawi
and a method of supervision for th?
regulation of these banks. It be
came their sponsor and endorser, am
finally drove out of circulation tin
?notes of all State and private banks
by* imposing a larger tax upon them
-and so foroing a majority of th
banks of the COL J try to adopt tb
National Bank system.
The banks in this way tock a larg
amount of the interest-paying sc
ouritics of the United States. Thea
bonds were bought in good fnitli
and tho holders are clearly entitle
to their interest unless tbey volunto
rily relinquish it. The Goverumen
cannot retreat from its share of tb
bargain without bad faith, which w
presume it will not perpetrate. Th
Now Orleans Crescent, in an artic!
on tho subject, says:
"Experience has proved the vain
of the National Bank currency. ]
is everywhere worth as much as th
legal tender. Singularly euongb, tb
notes of a broken National Bank ai
oven of moro value in tho marki
than thoso of on institution thorougl
ly Rolvent. As long as these fae
exist, it is difficult to soo what goo
would bo accomplisbod by retirin
tho Nntional Bauk notes and suj
plying their placo, dollar for dolla
by the printing of new greenback
If tho result attained should bo tl
abolition of the Natiounl Banks,
new baukiug system would be creatf
of neqessity, and it would bo like
to ?all into the hands of tho preset
bauk managers, just as tho Nation
Banks are chiefly in the hands <
those who oontrollod banks orgai
ized under the old State law."
As the Crescent suggests, wo tim
tho plan of tho Herald is . only a
other phase of the repudiating m
nia, which seems to have beset a pc
tiou of tho Northern people.
A correspondent at one of the V
giuia springs, in writing to tho Bal
more Sun, refers to the social re-uni
and commingling of Northern n
Southern people at tho watering ph
referred to, as of a happy tenden
to the restoration of old friendly :
lations botween the citizens of t
two sections. We agree with tl
paper, that there can bo no dor
that North and South are moro m
led in their sentiments towards en
other by ignorance and prejudi
than by malice. Whatever increai
the knowledge of each other will s<
sibly modify the crudo and aust<

A motion was then made to discuss
tho platform, section by section,
which was agreed to, aud au animated
and somewhat persoual debate oc?
curred. Objection was made to add?
ing the word "Radical" to the title ol
tho organization-some members ob?
jecting, on the ground that tho term
was not thoroughly understood, and
to insert it was impolitic. This wae
replied to, with the assertiou that af
free schools would soou be establish?
ed, pax-ties might become enlightened,
It was asserted by a delegate frotr.
Anderson, that "rat'ical" iu his sec
tion of country wa3 understood tc
mean repudiation. Another d?clar?e
that some of their political oppo
ii en ts would make this a po werf u
lever to work with, aud that the Per?
ry pft'-ty would gain many accession:
to its ruuks; ho was disposed to bc
somewhat conciliatory, so far as th?
mere adoption of the term was con
cerned; he was ns radical aa any man
but ho was not disposed to put i
stick in the hand 3 of auotlier iudivi
dual to break his owu head. Th?
question taking broader grounds a'
this stage of tho debate, a delcgat?
asserted that he was desirous, if pos
silile, to bring every ouo into th
party; if ex-Go v. Perry could bt
brought into the fold, he would wei
come him. Another up-couutry mern
ber opposed thia; he claimed that h<
was tho first Republican iu his Dis
i trict, aud preferred keeping the es
Governor out. A low-couutry mein
ber emphatically asserted that the;
wanted no Judas in their organiza
lion. An Orang . burg delegate reai
from a circular the title of the gene
ral committee in Washington, and n
tho word radical was uot used to di
siguate the organization at the Fed?
ral capital, he was disposed to leav
it out here. A delegate here state
that tho term was only used as a alu
on the party, aud as a menus c
bringing opprobrium upon it. Th:
was replied to excitedly by a delega!
from Darlington, who said he we
remembered when tho word "Yai
kee" was used as a term of reproacl
but now it was uot tho caso; the Yai
kees wero tho only truo radicals-th
only really loyal mon; insert the wot
.'radical'1 by all means; ho wante
no misunderstanding. A membe
with a forgiving disposition, referriii
to the declaration as to Judas, quote
the old atinge relativo to tiie lam
continuing to bum, .tc. The "bor
of conteutiou" was finally gotte
over, aud tho word omitted.
Another subject which olicitod coi
siderablo discussion, wan tho appo
tioniug of lands, tho assertiou havk
been made that iainiuu.su bodies 1
unproductive sud idle lauds wore n
actual injury to any country; tl
nniE-her of acres of that class in th
State being mentioned by o delega
from Charleston; he was in favor 1
taxation 011 the Swedish plan; if lani
owners would not, or could uot, cu
ti vate their lauds, he thought a heat
tax should be put on such lands, au
thus force the owner to ??Bposo of
part of them, at least-so that th?
could be divided up iuto small farm
wbioh, being properly cultivate
wou'd enhance the value of the rea
A member who had traveled exte;
sively in this Stato asserted that su<
a law was unnecessary; he had font
more planters and land-owners wi
were disposed to sell surplus land
than he had found purchasers; th?
were willing to sell to colored mo;
foreigners, or any oue else; beside
1i?w*S ft subjeot belonging exclusively
to a legislative body. A' delegate
from Fairfield said, that with equal
Sroprioty a resolution could be intro
ucod, to the effect that as large
houses or palaces in cities were use?
less, and us persons often occupied
houses in which there were a number
of vacant rooms, they should De com?
pelled to dispose of them; the prin?
ciple was the same.
Tlie following is the platform ns it
1. That in order to make the labor
of all our loyal fellow-citizens moro
effectual for ' carrying out the provi?
sions of Congress, for the restoration
of law and order in our State, as well
as for the pence and prosperity of
our entire country, we, the people of
South .Carolina, do form ourselves
into a political organization, to bo
known ns tho Union Republican
party of South Caroliua.
2. That ns republican institutions
cannot bo preserved, unless intelli
I gence bo generally diffused among all
classes, wo will favor a uniform sys?
tem of free schools and colleges,
which shall bo open to all.
3. That we will favor a liberal sys?
tem of public improvements, such as
railroads, canals and other works,
and also such a system of awarding
contracts for the same as will give all
our fellow-citizens an equal and fail
chanco to share in them.
4. That as largo land monopolies
tond only to make tho rich richer ?nil
the poor poorer, aud are ruinous tc
the agricultural, commercial am;
social interests of tho State, tho Lc
gislatnro should offer every practica
bio iuducemeut for the division am
sale of unoccupied lands among thc
poorer classes, and as an encourage
menl to immigrants to settle in oui
5. That the interests of the State
demand a revision of tho entire cod?
of laws and the re-organizatiou of tin
6. That it is just and proper tba
taxes should be ad valorem, and pro
portioned to tho property of th?
7. That the ballot being the sures
safegunrd of the rights of the citizen
all executive and legislative officers o
tho State should bc elected by th
Resolved, That, in our opiuion,
purely republican government i
maintained only hy makiug our ruler
responsible directly to the people b,
frequent elections-not by the Legis
laturc, but by the people themselves
Resolved, That the delegates w
shall send to the Constitutional Cot
volition about to bo called by tb
Commanding General, be instructe
to so framo our new Constitution
that the Governor and Council, St
nators and Representatives of tb
State Legislature, and all subordina!
officers, except those of the Judicial
Department, be chosen by the peopU
to bold their respective offices, nc
for two years, but for one year. An
that, in the election of Pr?sidant nu
Vice-President of tho United State:
chosen every four years, the elector
as they aro uow iu every other Stal
in the Union, shall be chosen by tl
people directly, and not by the men
burs of the Legislature.
8. That tho poor and destituti
those aged aud infirm people, lions
less und homeless, and past labo
who have none to care for then
should be provided for at tho expen:
of the State; aud that, iu tho recoi
strnction of our Government, ii
will seo to it that they aro not n
glected and forgotten.
9. That tho unhappy policy pu
sued by Audrow Johusou is, in i
effects upon tho loyal people of tl
South, unjust, oppressive and intol
ruble; aud accordingly, howev
ardently we desire to seo our Stn
once moro restored to its proper p
sition in the Union, we would deplo
restoration on any other conditio
than thoso prescribed by the fortio
Congress, to which we give our cc
dial and entire sanction, believi:
thc principles enunciated by the I
publican party, through that Co
gre8s, to be just and wise.
10. That tho adverse discrimir
tioii towards the agricultural labon
of the Southern States, as manifest
by the enormous tax on cotton,
unjust and oppressive, and should
abrogated at the oarliost practical
11. That we sincerely exult in t
fact that, as a nation, wo aro n
absolutely a nation of freemen, a
that, from tho St. Lawrence to t
Rio Grande, und from the Atlantic
the Pacific, tho sun no, longer sbii
upon tho brow of a slave.
12. That a wiso cure for tho pul
safety sometimes renders it necessi
that those who have sought resolut
to overthrow a Government should i
hastily be restored to tho privilej
of which they have deprived the
selves by their crime of troason-c
tainly not until they liavo shown e
dence of sincere repentance, am
disposition ns energetically to si
port us they bave in times p
sought to destroy tho Union; ti
that wo consider willingness on
part of those Dieu to elevate to poi
tho men who preserved unswerv
adherence to tho Government dur
tho war, as thu best test of sincei
iu professions for tho future.
lil. That wo will not support i
candidate for offico who will
openly endorse the principles adop
by tho Union Republican party; t
tbufr wo plodgo ourselves to stand
tho regular nomination of thc pai
without any reservation whatever.

It waa mpyed that the majority re?
port be adopted, to whioh Mr. Bur?
ton objected, asserting that there
were features in tho platform which
would injure the party, North and
South. After some little discussion,
the platform was adopted as a whole.
Tho Committee on the appoint?
ment of a State Central Committeo
submitted a report, recommending
that a committee of one from each
District be appointed by tho Chair,
to nominate a State Central Commit?
tee, which shall be composed of ono
member from each Election District;

stated that parties at the North, wli
had perilled their all for the beuef
of his race, had beeu agitating th
matter for a length of time. He coi
tended that his brethren had oi
quitted themselves well in every poa
tiou which they had occupicd
eqnally as well, in fact, as tho formi
dominant race. He asserted that tl
men referred to above hud led in th
mntter, and the colored race shou;
not shrink from pushing the mov
mont on, until they wero allowed 1
sit in the councils of thc nation. F<
these reasons, ho had penned the r
solutions. Ho declared that the 01
ginators lind eveu pointed to an ind
vidual-a Western man; and that
was right, proper and just. Ho b
lieved that it was a wise and jud
cious matter, to bo considered :
their assemblies. It would aron
?uul prepare tho masses of the peop
nt tho South to occupy such a poi
tiou; would animate and stimula
the race, and would net as a stimuli
to their efforts. He hoped that li
remarks would be carried homo
the hearts of his hearers.
Mi. DeLarge was opposed to tl
matter, aud would vote for tho be
man, regardless of color. He hopi
that, nt thia stage of the procecdiug
the Convention would not condescend
to bring tbe matter up. He believed
the resolution would oe voted down,
as it was a dangerous question to
spring at the present time.
Pending the discussion, the Con?
