? This body re-assembled at 12
I o'clock, yesterday, Hon. A. Burt in
I tho chair. Tho proceedings were
opened with prayer by Kee. Mr.
i Young. The journal of the previous j
days' proceedings was read and con?
On motion of Gen. Preston, the
Presidents and members of Democra?
tic Clubs present, were requested to .
toko seats on the floor of the house, j
On motion, the reporters for tho
press, wore invited to seats.
Col. J. P. Thomas, Chairman of
tho Committee of Ten, read the ro
port of the Committee on Business,
which, after some discussion, was
Whereas, in tho opinion of this
Convention, the interests both of our
State and our common country im?
peratively demand tho union of all
good, wise and conservative men,
under tho banner of tho National
Democratic party-a party faithful
to the principles of the Federal Con?
stitution, ns maintained by the fa?
thers of the Republic; bo it, there?
Resolved, That the Democratic
party of South Carolina do unite
with tho National Democratic party
of the country, and hold themselves
ready, under the Constitution and
laws, to co-operate with that organi?
zation in all principles, and in all
measures, that may be regarded con?
ducive to thc interests of the whole
country and of all classes of the peo?
Resolved, That the people of this
State, including all men prepared to
act with tho party, bo earnestly in?
vited to form Democratic clubs in
every section of the State.
Resolved, That the people of this
State be urgently recommended to
go to the polls and vote against tho
Constitution of tho radical faction
lately promulgated in Charleston,
and "to vote for good and truo men
for all offices within their gift. At
the same time in voting for officers
under this Constitution, wo would
put on record our protest against its
Resolved, That nuder the action of
tho State of South Carolina, hereto?
fore taken, we recognize the colored
population of the State ns an integral
element of tho body politic; and, as
such, in person and property, enti?
tled to a full and equal protection
under the State Constitution and
laws. And that as citizens of South
Carolina, wo declare our willingness,
when we havo the power, to grant
them, under proper qualifications as
to property aud intelligence, the
right of su tirage.
Resolved, Thiit n committee of five
be appointed by the Chairman to
nomiuate a State Central Executive
Committee, consisting of seven mem?
bers; a majority of whom shall bo
residents at Columbia.
Resolved, That tho Chairman ap?
point a Committteo of Five to nomi?
nate to this Convention suitable per?
sons-two delegates ?it large and one
from each Congressional District-to
represent the Democratic party of
thia State in the National D?mocratie
Convention, to be held in the city of
New York, on tho 4th of July next;
and that the State Central Executive
Committee be authorized to **,M snob
vacancies as may occur.
Resolved, further, That tho State
Central Executive Committee issue,
through tho press, such documents HS
be deemed conducive to the purposes
proposed by this Convention.
Before considering this report, it
was suggested that tho various papers
submitted to the Committee be rend
to the Convention. Whereupon Gov.
Perry, Col. Blauding and Col. Tho?
mas read those papers; and. on mo?
tion, they were referred to the Exe?
cutive Committee, to be revised and
published at the earliest day practi?
cable. These able documents, it is
believed, will be in print early next
The report of tho Committee ci:
Business was read bj- sections. An
animated and interesting debato en?
sued. Mr. Aiken objected to the
third section, as indefinite and really
inconsistent. He was unwilling to
vote for officers under an unconstitu?
tional provision. The section ho
declared impracticable and invalid.
Colonel Thom us replied. It -waa
deemed important to insert this sec?
tion, in order to bring out the
strength of the white vote in tho
State. But suggested, that in thus
voting, wo enter our protest against
tho entire proceeding.
Col. Aik'in accepted the sugges?
tion, and the following amendment
was added: "But, at the same time,
we enter our solemn protest against
Col. Aiken objected, that the fifth
resolution did not go far enough. Lot
the colored man know what ho had
to expect; give him something tan?
gible. Add to tho resolution, that in
duo time he shall have partial suf?
Gen. Chesnut stated that this sec?
tion caused some debate in tho Com?
mittee Boom. He thought the gen?
tleman from Abbeville was right.
We should say that the colored man
bo made to understand that hereafter
ho shall have qualified suffrage. Ho
also thought that, in military par?
lance, it would be necessary to accept
tho "African auxiliary."
Hon. B. F. Perry said he believed
it was absolutely necessary to the
peace and order of society that this
class of poople who had been elevat?
ed, should be permitted to vote. It
was important to encourago them,
and, being encouraged, they would
educate themselves and seek to ac?
quire intelligence and property. In
Connecticut, two years ago, when
this question was snbmitted to the
people, the negroes themselves went
forward and voted against universal
suffrage, on the ground that until
their colored brethren had acquired
intelligence and property, they were
not entitled to exercise the right.
The sanio argument addresses itself
to a large class of colored people
now. Qualified suffrage was the safe?
ty valve of society in South Carolina,
because it would make good citizens
of intelligent men; whereas, if not
entitled to the privilege, they might
be disturbers of the peace. Besides,
the privilege would be exercised by
so few that they could not exercise
a controlling influence in elections.
He had entertained these views for
many years, and when he went to
Washington, President Johnson con?
curred with him, and said that if all
tho Southern States would adopt
qualified suffrage it would disarm and
defeat tho radicals of the North.
The President likewise wrote to the
Governor of Mississippi and urged
him to employ his influence in secur?
ing qualified suffrage in that Stato.
lt was tho right principle-right,
because it is tho prize which the
colored man has won, and it can do
no harm to society. It was, there?
fore, proper, in going before the peo?
ple of the State, to lot tho negroes
know distinctly we aro willing to
concede this partial right of suffrage
to those who can handle tho tool
without damaging themselves. Say
this tn the black man and thousands
of votes would be secured in tho
coming election, besides doing great
good in the preservation of the
pence and quiet of society.
Co!. Thomas H11*" hearty con?
currence to the opinions expressed
by these gentlemen. He fuvored this
idea ever since the emancipation of
thc slaves. He agreed with General
Hampton when ho advocated this
measure a year ago, and he agreed
with bim now. The speaker had
been a slaveholder; but he hoped ho
was a humane and merciful one. Men
talk flippantly of the approaching
"war of racos," but should it come,
the speaker would do his part. Let
us accomplish a penceful solution of
this question-tho solution compati?
ble with the dignity of the white
race. The question arises, what shall
we do with the 4,0(HUHH> colored
pei pie iii our midst? In England,
Germany and France, difficulties
