The Remark* of GOT. Orr.
Buring tho recent meeting of the
stockholders of the Green vi Ho . und
Columbia Railroad, a political pass
age-at-arms occurred between. Col.
Aiken, of Abbeville, and Gov. Orr,
which wo desire to notice. Gov- "Orr
having speculated somewhat in rela?
tion to the probable action of . the in?
coming Legislature uponi the fortunes
of thu Greenville, .and juoiuinoiu
Railroad, Col. Aiken ohoso to ?Ilude
iu unmeasured terms to the character
and pretensions of that body. In
reply, the Governor, wp regret to
say, after discussing th? businoss
point involved, pnt himself forward
somewhat as the defender and apolo?
gist of that Legislature soon to mis?
represent this State. His; language
was bold, and if our comments par?
take of the samo spirit, it will be ac?
knowledged that wo have not pro?
voked tho issue. The Governor said,
in effect, that the gentleman from Ab?
beville might join in tho current de-^
nunciationof the Radical Convention
-might sneer at "the great riflgod
streokcd-stripod-and-spcckleJi " oud
all of that, but ho woaid toll tho
gentleman from Abbovillo, that tho
acts of this Convention were the law
of tho land, and would romai? so for
three, yea, perhaps for ton years
that the gentleman might scorn to
obey, but that tho Convention had
tho power, and ho and all would have
to obey-that there were some things
iu that Constitution that he did not
approve; but that there wero others
that ho did approve; and in conclu?
sion, that it was for the gentleman
from Abbeville to consider whether
his course was calculated to remove
the fetters from off our limbs. In
his opinion, opposition and denun?
ciation would serve but to rivet them
tho moro timely-and hence, as we
presume, his Excellency would sug?
gest to the gentleman that it becomes
him and us to bo us gent?o us doves
and as mild as lambs.
Upon these remarks of Gov. Orr,
as a public journalist, as a sentinel
ou tho watch-tower, humble as we
may be, we intend to make our
comments. We shall not impugn tho
motives of his Excellency. We con?
cede to him tho ?arno purity of mo?
tive that, we claim for ourselves. Dut
wo do contend that it ill became the
Governor of tho State to utter the
sentiments that he, with so much
feeling, put forth on the occasion re?
ferred to. It ill became him to pro?
claim tho power of un illegal body
and to announce tho years of its
sway, and to taunt the high-minded
gentlemen of the State with tho fact
that, nolens volens, willing or unwil?
ling, they would have to obey what
was tho law of the land. You will
have to pass under tho yoko, says the
Governor, and ho seemed almost to
eiu?t in tho thought. At least his
air, es he announced this, was proud
Nor do wo think that his Excel?
lency should suggest to his people
that they must make up their minds
to endure their badge of servitude
for three, and porhaps for ten, long
years. Wo would, with becoming
deference, suggest to his Excellency
that a moment is too long for us to
wear the yoko; that whilst wo shall
have to bear it, tho spirit of opposi?
tion should be kept up, its illegality
and outrageous character constantly
proclaimed, and the resolution re?
peated and repeated, that in all peace?
ful ways, in ull methods under the
Constitution and laws, we will oppose
this negro-radical rule, until we re?
gain tho heritage which is ours. Nor
has tho firwnrnrtf rvn on Vim if ann
. , .. _-. -j
right to assume that this thing will
last three or ton years. Wo hopo to
shako it off earlier-at least, wo in?
tend to try, and it is our boundou
duty to trj% and ta try by every legiti?
mate mothod that God and tho laws
permit. Nor think we that this
course serves but to rivet our fetters,
as his Excellency supposes. If you
want a man to shake off his shackles,
would you put him to sleep with u
narcotic? If Samson is to husband
his strength and recover his powor,
would you lay his head in Delilah's
Jap, and let him he shorn of his
locks? We reply, no; and vo say
M ?. ;
the hands of radicalism, and would
bind 'this State, band and foot, to
the oar of that Juggernaut of negro
role which is driving over the man?
gled limbs of all that is left us; of
constitutional liberty and of white
' It is our duty to say to jbbe Oo
vernor, with no personal. ill will
whateyer^-but rather with feelings
of gonuine sadness and regret-that
his course, in our opinion, does not
refleot the sentiment H and opinion of
those who elevated him to the Go?
vernor's ?hair. When Gen. Ganny
I stretched forth his baud to seize the
public funds, lio did not, like tho
noble Jenkins, of Georgia, Metellus
like, resist it, and protect the Trea?
sury of tho State. Ho has not, ns
we conceive, vindicated the high pre?
rogatives of his office-thougji the
vindication referred to, w#* admit,
may have had- a mor^ effect only.
He may have meant we'M, brit he has
not always donned1- His political
thoughts and . views'are of the earth,
earthy. Jd bis eburso os politician,
ho^wiH hover about tho table land af
expediency; whilst ho might, as tho
exponent of the people who put him
in office and gave him their confi?
dence, rise to the elevated height? of
principle. Tho Governor is -o^r
senior in our years of political expe?
rience, bnt not our superior in devo?
tion to State and country. We
would commend him to ascend in his
political role to tho mountain heights
of an elevated and elevating Une of
action; and'wo would suggest that
he seek to escape the noxious vapors
that spring from the ireedy low hinds
of a shifting policy.
Let him return to his first love
tho Democratic party. That party is
purer and better than when he won
its prizes and enjoyed ita honors.
Let him throw the weight of his
great abilities and earnest nature into
the Democratic scales of his State
and country, and again will ho enjoy
the confidence of an estrangod con?
stituency. In all that pertaius to a
just conservatism-in all that looks
to tho restoration of tho peace and
unity of tho land-wo will uuito with
the Governor; but we desire it dis?
tinctly understood, that thu intima?
tions of his Excellency, as thrown
out in his dobato with Col. Aiken, do
not tend to that result. On tho con?
trary, they point to a policy which
reconciles our people to negro supre?
macy, ana thus prolongs this disas?
We uotico that the Democratic
Club of Edgeliold proposo another
Convention of tho Stato Democratic
party, to bo hold in June next. In?
asmuch ns tho Convention of April
last adopted a platform which has
mot with unusual favor in the State,
and inasmuch as delegates have al?
ready boon appointed to the National
Convention, to bo held the 4th July
next, in New York, wo are inclined to
think that there exists no necessity
for Convention No. 2. However, tho
suggestion from Edgefield will no
doubt receive the high consideration
to which it is entitled. For one, wo
nre opposed to the movement.

to forge chains for tho Southern

servile and ignorant and corrupted
race of men, with whom thoy of the
'North, themselves, aro unwilling to
associate with as equals, either in a

Why, now, do they thus act? The
answer is plain. Because they want
to hold tho offices and political pow?

OUTBAOF BY NEOROES.-The Wil?
mington Journal chronicles tho fol?
lowing outrage, as a direct result of
tho inflammatory hu? migues lately
About 12 o'clock, Mr. George S.
Copes was awakened at his shop,
near tho Journal building, whero he
has a room, by a crowd of excited
negroes, and distinctly heard pro?
positions made by them to take bim
ont and hang him, accompanied with
curses and threats of other ill-treat?
ment. Mr. Copes cried out to know
who was thcro, and the negroes
shortly afterwards concluding that
they wero not iu sufficient force to
make the attack, departed to secure
other assistance, leaving ono or two
of their party to watch the promises.
Mc Copes thou concluding that his
person was in danger, loft his shop
and was seen and chased some dis?
tance, until ho nt last succeeded in
eluding pnrsuit. The excited negroes
then repaired to the residence of his
iain uv, and there made tho most per?
sistent demands to the helpless fe?
males to give him np, supposing him
there, accompanied with every species
of iusult, until at last, fearing tho
police, they took their dopartnre,
leavibg the family in a distressing
stuto of fright. Mr. Copes seems to
have excited their animosity by his
services at tho polls during tho recent
oleotion as a challenger for tho con?
servativo party. Wo aro ploased to
hear that tho name of one of theso
negroes ia known, and steps will bo
taken to have him punished, and, if
possible, discover thc others.
After it was known that Thomas
ville, Georgia, had gone Democratic,
the radicals set fire to the place, and
but for its being discovered in time,
would probably have destroyed the

pressed his baggage to James Collins,

already gone, gave up tho agent's
receipt therefor. Unluckily for bim,
however, tho messenger, had declined
receiving it, until duly scaled accord?

it? being returned to the office, cer?
tain other parties at once made legal

little to brag of in the way of ''skin*

DEMOCRATIC CLUBS.-Weare grati?
fied to leam that several Democratic
clubs have beeu recently organized
in different sections of tito District,
and that much enthusiasm prevails
in regard to their formation. The
proceedings at Bolton are published
to-day, and also the second meeting
of the G. eenwood club, at which
several more negroes united Pen?
dleton and other localities are mov?
ing, and we presume will report their
actiou whenever properly organized.
The influence of organization has
already improved the condition of
affairs throughout the Shite, and
must yet accomplish a great work in

incubus of inuruivlty. aud dissipating
tho evil effects of radicalism among
tho unfortunate aud deluded negroes,
Prompt and energetic measurer will

among the oath-bound Leaguers.
Let us "carry the war into Africa,"
