The diversity of opinion on the

more marked, and the probabilities
of her admission over a veto is de?

the Constitution itself, and the points
of difficulty apply to all the Southern
lu the House, a resolution adding
three Democrats to the Corruption
Committee was lost-53 to 65. The

Affair* tn Columbia.
A correspondent of ?he Charleston
Neu>$ writes as fo?flTfS :
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 26.-Affairs
ia this locality, especially those of a
political nature, begin to be of inte?
The recent D?mocratie Oonven
tioa, so-called, which assembled hore,
has.borne fruit. Whether it ia of
the Dead Sea order or not, remains
to be, tested. Upon the republican
platform, to the extent of conceding
qualified suffrage to the colored maa,
clubs have been organized in many
localities in every one of the twenty
four Districts represented in that
Convention, and the work still goes
on. A very considerable number of
the respectable colored men of Co?
lombia havelikewise formed ? Demo?
cratic club, and similar organizations
exist in other localities. The mem?
bers know each other by a peculiar
sign and pass-word, and it is designed
to give each one on joining, a hand?
some certificate, stating the foot, and
recommending bim to the considera?
tion of the community.
The Executive Democratic Central
Committee are working like beavers.
Colonel Thomas has editorial charge
of the local paper, and stirs the po
litical fire incessantly and well.
Facta, statistics and opinions ar?
gathered and forwarded to Washing
ton, to strengthen, if possible, thc
protest made in person by the oom
mittea daring their lato visit to tin
capital. It cannot be said that ma
terial benefit has accrued to ourselve
aa the result of this visit, bat th?
gentlemen composing the committei
are satisfied that they have done tin
public special service, in laying on
cause before so august a tribunal a
Thaddeus Stevens and his reconstruc
tion cabal, and in directing the atteu
tiou of the press of the North to ou
General Wade Hampton will un
doubtedly be selected as one of th
delegates to attend the National De
mocratio Convention, whioh assen
bles in New York on the 4th of Jnbj
I am unable to mention with certoii
ty the name of any other person. Th
representation of South Carolina i
that Convention by gentlemen of to
great an eminence-especially
greatness attained by their heart
identification with our cause dnrin
the war-however much it may satisl
ourselves, will, it is feared, do mot
harm than good,
A distinguished New Yorker, wi
was in this city but two or three da;
ago, and who is likewise a delega
to the National Convention, exprea
ed the hope that those comparative
unknown at the North would be se
thither, in preference to the famo
men whom we delight to honor, b
who on that occasion would bocon
the target of vituperation, and. I
taking on active part in deliberador
actually become a thorn in the si'
of the Democratic party. There a
many who believe we shonld refra
from seeking any alliance of the so:
until the platform has been fram
by the North and West.
Local affairs are interesting outsi
of the city only as they indicate t
sentiments of tho Republicans. T
Democratic candidate for Mayor
Colonel J. P. Thomas. The "V
Populi" have nominated Major Jo
Alexander, "a bonnie Scotch mai
and a most estimable citizen. It
believed that, notwithstanding hiss
vices for the Confederacy during t
war, a t-.ajority of the Republic*
will sustain him. In like manner, t
Republicans will sustain Major D.
Miller, the presont efficient Clerk
the Court. The tyranny of put
opinion hounds him because he 1
allowed his name to be used by "
niggers" as a candidate. Yet Ma
Miller carried the first company fr
Columbia into active service, and i
cripple for life from wounds reoeiv
His record on the Southern sid?
the house is as good as that of mi
of his fellows; whilo on tho Repu
can side, it seems to have been
misfortune to havo acted in s<
I good faith towards tho colored \
pie, as to secure their respect i
Dr. Neagle, tho Comptroller, (
doze, the Secretary of State, E.
K. Jillsou, the Superintendent
Education, DeLarge, the Sena

He is as keen as a briar, and boa
friends at work all over the SI

is that Sawyer will be his worst a
gonist, but that if Robertson is e
ed, Rutland, of Fairfield, a candi
of about 250 pounds avoirdu]
Trill, in hi? dioappuiuluieut, trip
np and roll on him. The conte
a very active one. Lieutenant-C
nel Willard is declared to be a ct
didate for tho Superior Court,
Moses will undoubtedly bo an
the supremes. The Speaker of
House will probably be F. J. M
Jr., the Inspector-General.
The Senate will, of course

suspicion that D. H. Ckambei
th? Attorney-General, will opec
litigation some of the many eas
contract based on Confederate cur?
rency, and so cree to a financial
