Ti ntl?! O, king!
A second Democratic meeting has
been held in Charleston, and another
brace of speeches delivered. A se?
cond time hos tho late Democratic
Convention beeu put upon trial, and
a second time has the action of that
body been misrepresented-we hope,
to the satisfaction of a portion of the
Charleston public. It is time that
we should appeal from the public
opinion of Charleston, to the public
opinion of the State. We beg to
assure some of the good people of
Charleston, as much as we respect
them, that they are not the State.
They, or some of them, seem to be
laboring under this hallucination.
One of their speakers, at the late
meeting, undertook to patronize his
"Columbia friends," and to an?
nounce, with all the gravity of which
he is capable, that they had lost
temper in the discussion. Let us
assure that speaker, who is at best a
jester, that in this he bas committed
quite a serious mistake. If any tem?
per has been lost, he must look for it
nearer home. People who are in the
right do not generally get out of tem?
per. This is usually to be found
with those who first put themselves
in the wrong by their own default,
and then attempt to saddle the
blame upon innocent parties. The
managers in Charleston shall not
escape thus easily. Who is to
blame ? Let us examine the facts,
and these shall answer the question.
Let it be remembered, that during
the past 3'ear, calamiti^s^nad been
endured by our people, and wrongs
had been henped upon them, suffi?
cient " to stir a fever in the blood of
age, and make the infant senses
strong ns steel." The reconstruc?
tion Acts of Congress had been
matured, and, with a cold-blooded
malignity, they were about to bo
forced, upon the State, by the com
biucd power of the sword and cor?
rupt and unscrupulous adventurers,
white and black. Our heart went
out for our brethren, in the darkness
and distress everywhere, and no
whero more warmly than towards
Charleston. We were about to be
crushed to the earth. What was to
be done ? What could be done ?
The radicals, black-and-tan, were
organizing in our midst ; they were
holding Conventions, and tearing up
the very foundations of society. In
the agony, almost of despair, we
said: "Let us consult together for
good." And thus, in tho fall of tho
last year, a Convention for consulta?
tion was proposed by tho people of
Columbia to the people of the State.
In response to that call, the first
gentlemen of the State convened iu
this city ; and we may truly add that
it was one of tho most intelligent and
imposing public bodies that ever
convened upon our soil. Earnest,
honest and able, they came from nil
parte of tho State, to take counsel
frorr* each other. Where was
. (?V&rleston ? What did Charleston
do ? Not a man was sent ; uot a
voice was heard, from within her
walls. Had she lost all sympathy
with the rest of the State ? Had she
no common suileiing, no common
interest, no common past, present or
future with tho country ? Had sho
no voice of counsel, no word of en?
couragement to give, in such n
moment of distress and anxiety?
These wero questions that were asked
on ?'.ll sides* when that Convention
met. When her name was called
she answered not a word. For n
moment tho State folt as did Jacot
of old, when he exclaimed : " Josepl;
is not ; Simeon is not ; and non
Benjamin lias been taken away. Al
these things are against me.'- Tin
feeling was that of sorrow, not of
anger. But the Convention have said
-be it so ; we are nbie to take care of
ourselves. The Convention was
organized, committees were appoint?
ed, and, after long and earnest con?
sultation, it was agreed that they
should take no other action nt that
time, save to put forth an address to
the white people of the State, in?
tended to strengthen and euoourage.
That address was caught up, and
republished throughout the whole
country, North, South and West.
The highest encomiums were passed
upon it, and immediately tho whole
South followed the example of South
Carolina. Similar Conventions were
held, and a Democratic organization
commenced. Charleston alone shut
the door in our faces, and parted com
pany with tis. Time went on ; the
negro Convention soon assembled
within her own gates, and, ere long,
put forth an ignoble document,
called a Constitution. White men
were to be ruled by negroes, and
taxes were to be imposed that would
wring the blood from the hearts of
our impoverished people. Not yet
ono word from Charleston. We
looked and hoped iu vain. In four?
teen days the elcctiou was ordered,
and tho iron was to enter our souls.
What was* now to be done? How
shall we resist this enormity ? Shall
we submit, or shall we make un
effort to resist ? How ?hali wo resist ?
Shall wo go to the polls, or shall we
remain nt our homes ? Congress had
recently changed tho law, and the
quiet negative wus no longer available.
Shall we unito our fortnnes with tho
Democratic party ? Shall wo nomi?
nate officers for tho State Govern?
ment to aid our party organization ?
These, and a hundred other ques?
tions, coming home to our peace
and happiness, our families
and our f?esides, were presented for
consideration. Overwhelming issues
these;* aye, the issues of life aud
death. What did .Charleston say,
upon whoso very soil this infernal
drama had been enacted? She sjrnke.
not a word. Wo do not mean to up?
braid her inaction-it was difficult to
say what was wiso or expedient.
But the little District of Newberry
did speak-it was an occasion for
wise and calm consultation-let us
assemble and commune together.
The people of Bichland took up tho
call, and tho largest and most re?
spectable meeting that was ever as?
sembled in Columbia, responded and
extended tho call to the State at
large, to meet in Convention. A
committee on invitations was ap?
pointed. ' The time within which
that committee could act was very
limited, as wo have seen, and not au
hour was to be lost. The committee
walked from the meeting and tele?
graphed tho news of the call-where?
Why, first of all, to Charleston. So
that ou that very day the information
reached Charleston; and they had
the invitation of the meeting in Co?
lumbia, the next morning, at their
breakfast tables, whilo messengers
had to bo employed to convey the
same infonmruou to tho people.of
Bichland. Every part of tho State
that could bo reached, was commu?
nicated with by the telegraph. And
everywhere tho action was prompt in
reply. What more could Charleston
expect? Did she think that it was
well enough to communicate with thc
country by the telegraph; but as to
her, that cards of invitation should
be issued in roso color and gold? If
she did, then she was mistaken, and
must continuo to complain. But
what was the result? Whilo gome of
the most remoto parts of tho State
wero represented, Charleston again
shut the door in our faces; she sent
us no voice of encouragement, gave
us no word of counsel; and no man
appeared to greet us with a friendly
smile. The question was asked in
every direction, "Where is Charles?
ton?" Echo answered, "where?" A
Convention of a hundred or more
delegates went earnestly into tho
work of consultation upon the great
questions that had called them to?
gether. It is but duo to say, that
tho Mercury is not responsible for
this second mistake ou tho part of
Charleston. That able journal ad?
vised a diff?rent course, and urged a
represontutiou from Charlestion in
that Convention. Now, what was
the Convention to do? Was it-tu
adjourn aud go home, because
Charleston pleased to sit idly by,
, and make no sign. It was composed
' of tho very best men of the State
: men who had. their all nt stake,
i Must they put their hands upon their
? mouths, and their months in thu
, i dust, because Charleston was either
? indiff?rent, willful or wayward. The
i peoplo of Charleston misunderstand
r tho manhood of the State, if they
I could fora momont believe this. Now,
> what, among other thiugs, wus the
- ' -.--,
action of tnafc Convention? Did they
show presentment or anger?" Lot
the facts speak. The two most
honorable and dignified offices in
the gift of tho State were filled
npon the ticket by the names of
Charleston men-the offices of Go?
vernor and of Attorney-General.
Now, mark the result. Every gentle?
man named for office, in every other
part of the State, suffered the weight
of his name and influence to be used
to unite the party and carry out its
objects, except the nominees from
Charleston. They declined the honor
of the nomination. We do not mean
to complain of these gentlemen, for
whom we entertain tho highest re?
spect and tho warmest admiration.
We believe them to be good and true
men, in every sense of those words;
but we are now dealing with facts.
Their motives aud their reasons are
beyond question, and are no doubt
perfectly satisfactory to all. But we
do mean to say, that this did not in?
dicate "resentment or anger," on the
part of "our Columbia friends." We
felt no such sentimeut then, and we
feel none now. Tho sumo speaker,
at the Charleston meeting, was dis?
posed to reflect upon the action of
tho Central Executive Committee, as
unauthorized and as somewhat dicta?
torial, because they did not at ouce
hasten to call another Convention, at
tho bidding of Charlestion. The
committee had no such power con?
ferred upon them, as may be seen
by tho re*>lutiou making tho ap?
pointment, and defining tho extent of
Wo must, therefore, be permitted
to characterize this reflection us en?
tirely gratuitous, and as showing
some degree of "anger and resent?
ment," to say the least of it. The
committee have labored faithfully,
and, we believe, satisfactorily, for
the people of the State and the Con?
vention whom they represent. That
committee was nominated without
solicitation on their part. General
Hampton was not a member of tho
Convention, but was absent at the
West when named as one of tho Exe?
cutive Committee; Mr. Pope was not
in Columbia at the time when placed
ou the committee; General McGowan
was not a member of the Convention
-neither was Mr. Shannon ; nor was
cither gentleman present; Colonel
McMaster and Colonel Thomas were
members of the Convention, and
were nominated on thc committee as
two of the most useful men that
could have been selected. We cheer?
fully admit that some of the ques?
tions passed upon by tho Conven?
tion nro open to a wide difference of
opinion; but the Convention settled
thoso questions and those differences
satisfactorily to itself. If Charleston
had no voice in deciding those ques?
tions, we ask again, whose fault was
it? Lot Charleston answer. Cer?
tainly, the fault does not bolong to
"our Columbia friends." But it is
said that no delegation was nominat?
ed from Charleston to tho Natioual
Democratic Convention. The claims
of Charleston were overlooked! This
is unfortunate; but, in poiut of fact,
what "claims" had those who had
avoided our counsels and turned
their backs upon our fears, our hopes,
our solicitations and earucst invita?
tions? We again except the Mercury,
who advised a different course. Had
the Couveution any assurance what?
ever that the nomination would have
been accepted, or would have been
even agreeablo to those who had
twice refused us the light of their
countenance? Any nomination that
did cot originate in Charleston may
have been, and in all probability
would have been, declined. There
was a delegation from Colloton
which is a part of the .Charleston
Congressional District-and this ?lelc
gatiou proposed Mr. Tracy as a dele?
gate to the National Convention,
which was at once acqm'esed in as in
every way suitable. But what if a
full delegation had been named from
that Congressional District-still, if
Charleston had been overlooked, the
unpardonable sin would still have been
committed. Ignore Charleston! thc
city of Charleston! Think of that,!
yo rustics! Well, Charleston has;
been petted, and we must excuseb?r. i
The chief city of every State and tho 1
State itself have always been at war j
with each other; but. not so with I
South Carolina and Charleston. ;
Whatsoever the child has asked, the
mother hosgrnnted. Has she wanted a
judge or a governor, or other officer
> of tho State, it has never been denied
I to lier. Pur years, Charleston filled,
lat the samo time, tho offices of Pre?
sident of the Senate und tho Speaker
of tho House. Even after tho war,
she had both again at her command.
Has she wanted a railroad to increase
her trado, she hod it. Has she want?
ed the sand-bars cut away from ber
harbor, it was done. Has she wanted
direct trade, money was voted for
steamships. lias she wanted a post
war Senator, she had the man of her
choice. What has the State ever re?
fused to Charleston? Tho State has
loved the city, and loves her still.
But Charleston must cease to think dial
she ie the State. When the State has
acted by a convention, she does not
mean, because the spoiled child is a
little fretful, to call another conven?
tion for her peculiar gratification.
She was invited to the family party;
why did she not come? We shall be
greatly mistaken and disappointed if
tho people of the State shall yield to
the unreasonable wishes of those who
are now asking what was twice reject?
ed with so much indifference.
We have deemed it necessary to
say thus much, in order that the peo?
ple outside of Charleston may truly
understand the merits of this contro?
versy-the demands of Charleston on
the one hand, and the action of tho
Convention of the State on the other.
And thus much we have deemed it
proper to say in vindication of the
Central Executive Committee. We
have spoken in the spirit of kind
ness, and not in the spirit of resent?
ment. Truth is all that has been
aimed at, and we arc told that she is
powerful and will prevail.

ISV1GORATOK AVI) RESTORER.
NOW IS THE TIME TO CLEANSE OUT
those PERILOUS SPOTS, Pimples,
corrupt sores, which POLLUTE the LIFE
of tho BLOOD, and rondor your body a
loathosomo thing. They are tho precur?
sors of a diseased blood,?and will assume
a much moro formidable shape if allowed
to go on unchecked. Tho QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT, tho only real blood purifier that
bas ever been invented, as thousands will,
to-day attest, is offered to the afflicted as
a positivo remedy for all diseases flowing
from a vitiated condition of tho systom.
THE LIFE OF TUE FLESH IS PURE
BLOOD. Upon this theory alono tho in?
ventor of Ibo Queen's Delight establishes
tho groat hygienic law, WITHOUT PURE
BLOOD NO FLESH IS FREE FROM DIS?
EASE. The Palo sud Shrunken Forms,
Yellow Fat'os. Weak-Stomachs, Diseased
Livers. Crippled Rheumatics, Nervous
Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Victims of
Headache, so common in this country, is
owing entirely to tho humors of tho blood.
Very many other diseases may bo traced to
bad blood, Scrofula or King's Evil, Erysi?
pelas, Exanthema or Elevare, a rash or
eruption on females; Blotches, Tetter,
Goitre or Swelled Neck, Syphilis and Sy?
philitic Sores, St ruinous Ulcers, Ac.
These cannot bo cured without purifying
the blood. Now aa to the remedy. Tnero
ie no othor blood purifier that will accom?
plish such positive and extraordinary cures
as Heinittrh's Queen's Delight. Yon may
take a barrel of extract Sarsaparilla, aud
still you will not bo cured; and, as a proof
of it, look around and yon will observo tho
country, throughout " Its length aud
breadth, is Hooded with compound Sarea
Earillas, extracts and syrups; claiming to
e blood purifiers, and yet wo seo to-day
moro evidenco ot impurity of tho blood
than ever. Why is thb.V Simply becauso
these extracts and Sarsaparillas arc worth?
The Queen's Delight is a new compound,
and is now tho great blood medicine; sanc?
tioned by thc profession, patronized by tho
highest dignitaries of tho lund, endorsed

MENTAL. DEPRESSION.-Mental de?
pression is a disoase of tho nervous sys?
tem, and of all tho ills flesh is heir to, it is
tho ono that excites tho least sympathy.
It is a subject of frequent jests, and is
called by various dorisivo terms; but, al?
though it is often laughed at, it is not
oaBy to laugh tho patient ont of tho belief
that hiB ills aro all real, for it is a real dis?
order-tho general features of which aro
constant fear, auxioty and gloom. Tho
external senses, as well as tho mental
faculties, often manifest symptoms of de?
rangement. Noise, as of falling water,
and ringing in the oars, aro complained of,
while black specks and fiery sparks fre?
quently flit before tho vi?ion. Admonitions
hko theso should not bo disregarded, as
they mav, if neglected, terminate in in?
sanity. Tho sent of tho disease is in tho
bruin and nervous syBtcm, and to control
tho malady it is necessary to uso a power?
ful tonic and alterative, which will correct
and tono those organs without inflaming
tho brain. This is tho secret of tho suc?
cess of HOSTETTEIt'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS in cases of this kind, for which it is
the safest as well as tho nest of restora?
In fact, it is thc only pnro and reliable
tonio stimulant known. Many nostrums,

from timo to timo in tho newspapers, but
