good wages, voto tho Democratic
Laborers! If you need work and
plenty of it, you too must vote tho
. Colored man I If you want employ?
ment and peace and a future for your
race, vote the Domocratio ticket; and
let all radicals remember that tho
whites are coming to regard that

against the white people that they
are living with.

Caii'oyV Act of Pliicing Ntgroc? on
thc Koui-d of Aldermen.
Tho spirit displayed by the people
and press of Charleston, is worthy of
all commendation. We admire the
tone and spirit displayed. Tho South
will turn to the National Democracy
of tho Union, and lind sympathy
there. The Mercury s,ays:
"What is the character of this act,
in tho light of these facts? We do
not mean to complain; because com
?laint is folly, nuder despotisms,
'he weak complain; and despotism
exults over weakness. But wo beg
leave to call thc attention of the
white people of tho North, to this
operation of thc reconstruction laws.
They must see, that when neither
order, nor tho euforcomeut of tho
reconstruction laws require it, wbito
men, without ?i single charge against
their fidelity, in tho dischnrgo of
their duties, or lo the Government of
the United States, arc removed from
office, and negroes put in their places.
The military power of tho United
States is used, to anticipate tho re?
construction itself, which tho com?
mander was appointed to enforce, in
order that the thirst of negroes for
rule and pelf may be gratified. Not
protection, but persecution of the
white race-not security to property,
but its spoliation-not justice, but
oppression-not reconstruction, but
subversion and ruin and anarchy and
a war of races, seems to be tho rulo
of tho United States, nuder a polioy
which Becks to place tho Caucasian
under the African.
Let our people bc patient and wait.
Tho great poot has said:
'It came-it cometh, and will como, tho
To punish or forgive 1" "
Nor shall we omit to add that Mr.
J. B. Campbell spoko woll in a meet?
ing held in Charleston on this point,
and showed a just appreciation of
tho indignity cast upon old Charles?
ton-a placo ondoarcd to us by a
thousand recollections |of her tono,
and refinement in general, and of
her heroism in the lato war.

FELLOW-CITIZENS : Vote early. All

Vote the regular ticket. A number
of colored voters are expected to vote
the Democratic ticket. Vole early.
No business in Columbia under radi?

struction, vote the Democratic ticket.

position of one of its nominees.
"What nie the political opinions of
Major D. B. Miller ? Is he a Demo?

Mn. EDITOR : I feel bound, iu good
faith, to go with my party, in oppo?
sition to the Democratic nominees
for District and town officers ; but, as
it appears that our friend, Dan. Mil?

purpose, the nomination of C. P.

Mn. EDITOR: I would urge on tho
voters of Richland, that they support
the nomination of Mr. Calnan, for
tho Clerk of tho Court-a correspon?
dent in your paper of Saturday, has
satisfied me that Maj. D. B. Miller is
not eligible to the office; and if ho is
elected, it is not probable that he
will bc allowed to qualify. Mr.
Calnan is a gentleman, who has come
amongst UR since thc war, and iden ti
I fied himself with us, both by mar?
riage and pecuniary investments, and
has gained a stronghold on the,
esteem and affection of all true
friends of RECONSTRUCTION, o
MEXICO AND MISCEGENATION.-Our
news from Mexico from day to day is
anything but encouraging as to the
prospects of continued order in that
country. Mexico is iu a condition
quite as helpless ns Hayti, where a
raving nigger tries to rule. Mexico
is ono of the few countries iu tho
world which have gained nothing by
coming in contact with modern civili?
zation. Whou Cortez found it, he
found a civilization which entitles
the original Mexicans to bo placed on
a level with the ancient Egptians. It
is not to be denied that the resources
of that country were developed under
Cortez and his successors to a point
which hdd not previously been
reached. It was a development, of
course, entirely in the interest of
Spain. Still, it was such a develop?
ment as implied that a strong and
vigorous power controlled the affairs
of State. Tho Spaniards, however,
as colonizers, made one grand mis?
take in Mexico, as in other parts of
Central America-they permitted and
encouraged a mixing of tho races. It
is not too much to say, that to mis?
cegenation most of the sorrows of
Mexico and much of tho sorrow of
all the Central American States are
to bo traced. Some races mix natu?
rally and woll, and oven develop a
grander stock than the originals.
Certain races, however, have for each
other no natural affinity. Tho mix?
ing of theso latter, of which wo bare
an example iu Spain, begets only
anarchy and eudlcss misery. It is
for ns ns a great people, with a great
destiny before us, to avoid repeating
iu tho South the great and now in?
curable mistake which Spain com?
mitted iii Mexico.

A MATRIMONIAL Novsurr.-Tho
New York correspondent of tho
Louisville Democrat, writes:
A fashionable wedding, on a new
plan, came off nt Zion Chm ch, in
thu Fi.di Avenue, this morning. The
bride is tho daughter of a wealthy
and well known iron founder, who

tirely choral. Bishop Southgate in?
toned tho prayers, and even thc
question, "Wilt thou toko this wo?
man," etc, was drawled out in thc
samo monotone. Tho effect wai
ludicrous, rather than solemn, and
one or two of the gushing brides?
maids could not restrain from laugh?

MB. EDITOR : The name of T. J.
Bawls has been put on tho regular 1
Democratic ticket, for Clerk of the j
Court. Strike it off, and vote the
regular ticket. DEMOCRAT.
For Hie Phoenix.
This subject is gathering frbsh
interest, every day, and assuming
collossal proportions in the minds
of the people. The stubborn faot
that the colored freed labor has
proved, after three year's trial, a most
lamentable failure, is patent to every
ono who has given it a fair trial, a
decided failure in tho amount of work
done, and a still greater failure iu
the imperfect execution-the waut
of interest manifested by them in
whatever way you employ their ser
vicos and their utter unreliability.
These arc tho geuoral facts, with few
exceptions, which have followed every
effort to employ them as agricultur?
ists, and tho question now arises
what is to bo done to remedy the
evil consequences of . this sad condi?
tion of thing3? There is only ouo
chance of moetiug the difficulty, and
it is tho employment of "foreign
tabor," aud tho speedy introduction
of a class of reliable working men in
our midst. ' The German emigrant is
probably the most thrifty and relia?
ble labor you can employ, and it
behooves us all to wake up at once
to the importance of this subject. It
is only by a prompt and united ac?
tion, on the part of our plauters, that
we can accomplish this desirable
object. The foreigner, in the present
state of our country, is not coming
here, unless we can give him a
specific assurance of a tangible cha?
racter, that he can and will be able
to obtain employment promptly, and
that the means of a livelihood will be
guaranteed to bim in such a way as
to make it in some measure a certain?
ty to him. It might answer very
well for a singlo man to come out
here, if ho would, on a venture, but
when a man has a family dependent
on him, he must have at least some
assurance of immediate employment,
and a home for his family. ll is
families thal ice want, and, therefore,
to them we must hold out induce?
ments to emigrate. There has been
an Immigration Society, recently form?
ed (though not yet quito organized)
in tho Fork of Richland District,
which has a constitution upon which
is based tho guarantees and assurances
which aro needed to induce this
emigration, and by it the planters
give to these emigrants a pledge of
Bpeedy employment, andthat.thoy will
bo honestly dealt with, and as com?
fortably accommodated as tho prosent
condition of our country will admit of;
and where th ero is already existing
a small nucleus around which larger
munbors may soon congregate, aud
form a pleasant society of their own
countrymen. But we go further, und
offer them the chances of building
up for themselves among our owu
families a good position in society,
and a strong protecting government,
at least, so soon as they can take
part in our political affairs, and they
will soou learn to know what is their
true interest; and wo cannot invite
them at nuy time moro peculiarly
fitted for then? to emigrate here thau
now, when all the old foundations of
sociely aro broken up, nnd our best
families have lost, to a great extent,
their individuality and position, so
that each ono has now u good op?
portunity to establish for himself un
euviablo position in society, which
may lead to connections of honor and
pride among our people, nnd thus
unfold to tho upright German foreign?
er an eldorado of his most sanguine
hopes-all these advantages eau bo
honestly offered to him, and with
such prospects gilding Ins dreams of
happiness in a hind of freedom,
where the step-stone to honor and
preferment ia individual merit and
virtue, must und will induce him to
receive wit'? pleasure the invitation
heartily given to come and tent with
us, and We will show him what is
WENDELL PHILLIPS RAMPANT.
The Chicago Republican Convention
has simply disgusted Wendell Phil?
lips with both its ticket and plat?
form. Ho is now completely adrift,
and as it is not likely that tho Demo?
cratic Convention will come np to his
mark, the only sensible or practical
course left him, is to shut up shop, or
set un an independent Presidential
old lino abolition, equal rights and
negro supremacy ticket. Otherwise
he is wasting his ammunition in the

In the meantime, we learn that our
Democratic fellow-citizen, Mr. Rob?

will be prepared, this morning and
henceforth, to convey passengers to

livery stable will, no doubt, be pa?
tronized by the up country, the low
country, the middle country, and

Mic. EDITOR: It seems certain that
tho radical nominee for Clerk of tho
Court, cannot hold tho office, if
elected. It is apparent from the
letter of Charles Sumner, of Massa?
chusetts, published in your paper a
day or two ago, that any special ap?
plication for the removal of civil dis?
abilities, will not bo favorably acted
upon until after the Presidential
election, wheu it is said a general for?
giveness of sins will be proclaimed.
Major Miller being disfranchised, on
accouut of niilitnry service rendered
to the Confederacy during the war,
or by election to offices of honor and
emolument held by him before the
war, to which he was elevated by the
votes of the while citizens of this
Distriot, the radicals aro absolutely
throwing away votes upon him. The
friends of Mr. Calnan have a right to
feel aggrieved that his claims upon
the suffrages of the party have been
overlooked in favor of a man, not
only thoroughly identified with the
rebellion, but disfranchised, disabled
from holding office, if elected to it.
How can Maj. Miller serve the party?
A NEW MOVEMENT.-Tho Charles?
ton correspondent of the Baltimore
Gazette, Bays: "I have just heard of
an important movement among the
State politicians. It seems that,
among others less prominent, Gene?
rals Hampton, Chesnut, Kershaw
aud McGowau, aro about leaving the
Democratic ranks to form a new and
moro strictly conservative party,
which is to take a middle course in
politics, and thereby avoid tho path
of Southern extremists, ns well as
that of Northern radicals This
movement is a sort of cudoi ement
of Gov. Orr's course; and, doubtless,
with the aid of such names at its
head, will command tho support of
mauy in this State."
In publishing the above, we need
scarcely add that there is no truth in

TUE GERMANS AND THE SOUTH.
Perhaps tho most encouraging sign
for our future is to be found iu tho
fact that the Germans seem nt last
thoroughly aroused to tho advantages
presented by tho South to the thrifty
and industrious immigraut. We see
it stated that Reuben Golding, Esq.,
of Stokes County, N. C., has sold
his forge, situated ou Dan River,
with about 1,200 acres of land at?
tached, to a company of German
capitalists, who intend bringing a
colony of Germans to that County.
It is the intention of tho company to
go largely into tho manufacturing
business. In Hamburg, they have
formed a stock company, with n
capital of $250,000, for starting a
German colony in Florida. It is
expected that 20,000 North Germans
can be directed thither in tho course
of two years, which would make the
speculation an exceedingly successful
one. Tho Germans in Texas aro over
00,000 in number, and it is estimated
that at least three-fourths of them
aro engaged in agricultural pursuits.
Careful and iutcliigent observers bo
lieve that at least one-third of the
whole cotton crop of Texas is now
planted and secured by their labor.
Tho Now York Legislature has
taken to votiug by machinery. It has
adopted an instrument known as the

A "WILD MAX."-We have been
told by au honest Dutchman of the
Fork, in Lexington, of tho appear?
ance, in that locality, of a wild man.
Two negroes, father and son, went
down to a branch, near where they
lived. As they stood on ono side of
the branch, they noticed on thc
other side, amid the thick shrubbery
there, a figure, staudiug erect, with a
robe wrapped around him, and hav?
ing a strange aspect in general.
Slowly this figuro raised a pistol,
and, taking deliberate aim, fired at
the two colored men. Whereupon,
the younger fled, crying, " the wild
man." The elder stood his ground,
whether bravely, or hecarfso he could
not rim, we kuow not, until ho saw
tho figure slowly marching away and
along the line of the stream. Since
thou., the wild man has once again
made his uppearance.

THE RAM.E PLANT.-The ramie
plant, which was introduced into
this country from Java, to tho soil of
which it is indigenous, is attracting
much attention iu the South.. At au
agricultural fair recently held in
Alabama, it was ono of the special
features of the exhibition. It is
claimed that, if properly cultivated
aud worked, it will eventually take
the place of cotton, and supply any
deficiency in that great staple pro?
duction. Its fibres aro said to be
much finer and stronger than the best
flax; that they are as fine as Sea
Island Cotton; and that, after clean?
ing, they become very soft and
white, aud take colors as readily as the
finest wool or silk. Several articles
of clothing made from this fabric
were exhibited at the fair referred to,
and were particularly noticed for the
strength and beauty of the material.
The cultivation of the ramie plant
has been successful on a number of
plantations in Alabama.
