THE OBJUOCRATXC TICKET.
1778 ^ |w? 1868
HORATIO SEYMOUR, or N. Y.
GEN. P. P. BLAIR, OF MISSOURI.
Saturday Morning, July 18, 1868.
DEMOCRATIC ITEMS.-The various
clubs of Abbeville District recently
met and unanimously ratified the
nominees for the Presidency-Sey?
mour and Blair. The Banner urges
the people to go to work. The Keo
weo Courier adopts the same spirit,
and, in its account of Democratic
Clubs, and zeal, and activity, shows
that Oconee is alive. In Greenville
and Anderson, clubs are still form?
ing and the people earnestly prepar?
ing to do their best for tho cause.
In Charleston and, indeed, in every
part of tho State, the nomination of
Seymour and Blair has been received
with great favor. Let the campaign
be opened with vigor and let us press
on to victory. ?
To the Legislature.
In my communication, published
in Wednesday's Phoenix, where I
refer to the late decision of our
Court of Errors, which pronounced
laws suoh as are recommended by
Gov. Orr to bo violative of the Con?
stitution of the United States, I
Accidentally stated that this was de?
cided by "two" Judges against one.
It should have boen len Judges; for,
out of the eleven constituting tho
Court, only one dissented from its
I would here remark that the Court
rests its judgment, in the case refer?
red to, almost exclusively upou the
decisions of the United States Su?
Let not Gov. Orr, by inducing you
to pass stui/ laws, and tn make the
homestead clause of the Constitution
apply to existing contracts, cause you
to violate your oaths to support tho
Constitution of the United States;
and thus give countenance to the
charge urged against you by your
opponents, that you hav * no regard
for the Constitution or LAW.
ZlR. EDITOR: Let tho good work
go on. Our new Mayor, we know,
will not bo behind thc times. Grass
growing in tho streets, aud obstruct?
ed side-walks, should receive tho at?
tention of our City Fathers. We
desiro to call the attention to tho
almost entire obliteration of tho side?
walks around tho old Convent cornel*,
where pedestrians fair aro obliged to
take the street, because tho debris
covers that portion of it which strict?
ly belongs to tho side-walk, and
should bo unobstructed. Tho side?
walks or pavements, are as much un?
der tho supervision of the Commis?
sioner of Streets us any other portion.
We hopo our Mayor will direct his
attention to it, and seo that all the
side-walks aro free from obstruction
and open to travel.
HEAVY TOMI DEMANDED.-We have
been shown tho following circular,
addressed to a postmaster in this
County. It scorns to cost something
to hold office under the Republican
party. As this paper was addressed
to a lady, whoso right of suffrage has
not yet been established, we presumo
it missed its mark. At any rate, tho
eighteen dollars have not been sont:
"POST MASTE?, YOKKVILLE, S. C.:
The Republican National Committeo,

thc purpose's of tho Republican
party will readily understand that

The following letter is addressed to
the presiding officer of one of the
Leagues, in Korry District :
COLUMBIA, July 15, 1868.
MY DKAB. AND HONORED SIB : I
promised to write you a few lipes, to
give you my views of things in this
oity, the seat of Government of this
glorious State. I pray that these
lines may ?nd you in the enjoyment
of the best health, ns they leave mo
at present. The delegation arrived
I here in full health. We bad our
place in the car with the white peo?
ple-the white people is grum on the
cars, except the white members of
the Legislature; and especially the
candidates for Senate, for Judge of
the Oourts, and such like. The can?
didates and tho white mombers treats
us Uko brothers. They sit on tho
same seats in the cars; they call us
mister-none of your uncle or boy,
or such things whioh belongs to the
time when wo had the hoe in our
hand. The candidates and our whito
brother members, have treated us
well; they is so friendly, that I feel
somehow os if this thing wont lost.
I see white people hore who was onco
right rough, who now treat us real
kind. They invite us to toko drinks
this is the greatest placo for drink?
ing, I ever was in-to tell you tho
truth, honored sir, I have not laid
down to sleep a single night sinco I
arrived, without feeling as if I had
just as much to drink as I want
plaiu or with sugar-cost all the
same. Tis worth while coming to
the Legislature, just for the freo
drinking. They have a drink here,
they call cocktails-tumbler half full
of whiskey, ice, sugar and a bitter
stuff-I find this a good drink; I
think it will keep off fever aud ague;
the sugar makes the liquor too sweet,
so they put iu the bitter stuff-tho
bitter stuff makes tho whiskey too
bitter, so they put in the sugar.
The election for ono Senator has
como off-tho Hon. Tom Robertson
is elected. Mr. McKinlay nomiuated
Mr. Robertson. He spoke of him os
one who had imperilled his lifo for
the Constitution. I voted for Mr.
Robertson, because the party requir?
ed mo to do so; yet, I must say, I
don't recollect Mr. Robertson peril?
ling life for or against the Constitu?
tion; becauso he was a wood con?
tractor on the South Carolina Rail?
road; and by keeping off tho track,
his lifo was safe. Ho was Colonel of
a Reserve Regiment, in the Confe?
derate service-and not being called
into action, his life was in no danger.
Mr. R. keeps a nico carriage, ono
groy and one bay horse, and plenty
of good whiskey. On the whole,
Mr. R. is a goodman; ho has moue}-,
and don't go on bonds of the public
The great election for Senator has
como off. Hon. Mr. Mackey, Mr.
Sawyer and Parson French were
candidates. I voted for Mr. Mackey,
first; then I voted for Pursou French,
and to-day for Mr. Sawyer. French
kept quiet-Mackey and Sawyer
quarrelled powerful; Muckey's peo?
ple got up a newspaper called the
Record, in which ho cursed Sawyer
dreadfully. These whito people quar?
rel so, that I commence to think
there must bo something wrong. Tho
colored people uro tho best in tho
Legislature, by long odds. Mr.
Whipper is a giant; so is Mr. Do
Large. They aro both far aher.d of
any white people in the Legislature.
These gentlemen would bo respect?
able anywhere; but especially in this
Legislature, there are moro poor
mean whites hero than I ever saw
before. Honored sir, I foel tho blush
of shaun' when I look at tho whito
Republicans in this body. Tho De?
mocratic members arc only a few, but
iu candor, I must say, I can find no
fault with them; they may bo mis?
guided men, but they aro honest and
straight-forward. Sir, tears carno to
my eyes when I saw them vote for
Sawyer, to-day; not that they loved
Sawyer more, but becauso they loved
Honored sir, I must close. Three
white men have asked me to ride out
with them in ono of Hon. Mr. Fra
zee's carriages, and I go. I think
they want to talk to me about voting
for Judges. This meeting in Now
York don't look right. They have
nominated men named Horace Sey?
mour and Franklin Blair; and, tc
tell you tho truth, our party don't
feel right. There is something up in
! the country, and I don't think Grant
j can carry the day. lu that case,
what is to be done? Theso mean
white men are going to leave, sure, il
tho party goes down. Tho Demo
crate say they will givo us qualified
suffrage, and will bo just to us; ami,
to tell you tho God's truth, fron
what I cnn seo, wo had better accept
of their promises. Wo nil kuovi
theso people, and they always have
spoke truth. I nm put out with thc
white men in tho Legislature; thej
quarrel so, und acenso ouo anothor o
bad things, and provo it on ono ah

cannot find honest men Uko Whippoi
and Cardoza, and such Uko, wo had

Governor Orr and tbe Ch ?rieston
MR. EDITOR: Governor Orr, for
tho first time sinoe he was twenty
one years of age, is a private citi?
zen. In faot, his public lifo may
properly bo said to have commenced
when of the age of eighteen. And,
from that time to the present, THE
FEOFLE of the State have adhered to
him and sustained him, and his po?
litical record never has been, in even
ono single instance, condemned by
THE PEOPLE. It is true, that some
politicians have differed with him,
but the people have always decided
against these who opposed him.
And, when I say thc peoplo, I mean
tho wisdom and intelligence of the
State. Governor Orr is not infalli?
ble, and once I differed widely
with him ; but he was sustained and
time proved me wrong. How often
hos Governor Orr been chosen to flit,
the most important positions, when
wisdom, prudence and great politi?
cal sagacity wore the requisites; and,
in no one instance, has he ever
decoived or fallen below tho reason?
able expectations of reasouaMo peo?
plo; but ho houever has been able to
satisfy or iu any way please that
most unreasonable journal, tho
Charleston Mercury. And ho never
has been able to secure one kiud
word from any member of tho Rhett
familj-. In fact, old Rhett and all of
his boys have devoted much of their
lives to writing and talking against
Orr. Tho political docket of tho
Mercury, under tho Rhett family,
has always kept open thc case of
Rhott vs. Orr; and, nlthough thc
people-tho highest tribunal in tho
State-has repeatedly decided
against tho plaintiff, yet still ho
argues tho point. Tho old man and
his boys aro still insisting, (thc wis?
dom and intelligence of the State to
tho contrary, notwithstanding,) that
Orr is no part of a statesman, and that
old Rhett and the boys aro and
always havo been tho greatest living
statesmen! Whenever Orr's namo
was suggested for office, he never was
tho man, but tho old mau was emi
uoutly qualified. If the Confederate
Government and the State Govern?
ment, durino* tho war, had recog?
nized tho great genius und superior
claims of Father Rhott, ho would
havo guided and directed affairs
much better than Orr did. I believe
that tho boys don't contend that
their father is a greator man than
anybody but Orr, but he is certainly
greator than Orr.
Somo time after the Mexican war
was over, ono of General Taylor's
Generals sought an interview with
tho old hero, and, says he: "Gene?
ral, some of our friends aro getting
up a controversy in tho papers, about
whether you or I deserve the credit
of fighting and gaining tho battle of
Buena Vista; but, General, we must
not allow this to disturb our friendly
relations." "Certainly not," replied
tho old hero; "for, sir, I will givo
you a certificate that I was not there
and had nothing to do with tho
fight." So I have no doubt hut
what Governor Orr is now perfectly
willing to givo the boys a certificate
that tho peoplo, tho Legislature, and
the Conventions of tho State havo
all committed grave errors in honor?
ing him, when father was so anxious
to got office.
Now, Mr. Editor, the truth of thc
business is just this: It is, indeed., a
great pity that the Mercury has been
revived under tho Rhett family, for
tho old mau and his boys are cor
taiuly tho most impracticable, tho
most diabolical, tho most mischief
making, tho most destructive politi?
cians now or over wero in tho State.
They havo always been differing
with and scolding tho Democratic
party. Tho Democratic party has
never received thoir support, but
they have always bceu advocating
somo wild, visionary, political some?
thing, (or, moro properly, nothing,)
which embodied tho ideas of tho
family. And their platform has
always bceu so illitcrul, so narrow
minded, that only au insignificant
cliquo could stand upon it. It will
astonish somo people, to learn that
tho Mercury has becomo Democratic.
Thc old man aud his boys havo novor
pretended to represent tho sentiments
of tho Democratic party. They
never havo beeu satisfied with either
tho Democratic party of the State or
United States, and they never appear
pleased, ntdess thoy can get up a
schism in Stato politics. And tins
samo devilish, schismatic spirit, tried
its best, recently, to divido tho De?
mocratic party of the State. Now, I
am a cousorvativo Democrat, and I
endorso Governor Orr, aud I don't
believo that either old mau Rhett, or
any other man, not oven tho Presi?
dent of tho United States, could
have prevented tho operation of tho
Reconstruction Acts. I nm satisfied
that thoro nro fow men who could
havo managed for us as well as Orr
has dono, and tho Convoutiou that
nominated him so unanimously when
all was gloom, havo no causo to
rogrot their action.

Uuiou people; women were being in

present municipal and County offi?
cials, not only did nothing to dis?
countenance these proceedings, but
in some coses actually sanotioued
them. In order to remedy this con?
dition of things, as far as practiable,
he moved that in compliance with
the first section of article four of the
Constitution, the General Assembly
appoint other officers in these locali?
ties, or authorize tho Governor to do
The Chair ruled that the Legisla?
ture had not this power, when on
motion of Smalls, tho motion of Kuh
was referred, in tho shape of a resolu?
tion, to the Judiciary Committee.
Tho Special Committee appointed
to draft rules for the House, made a
report, recommending that the Houso

3 P. M. ; and that it be governed by
the rules of tho old Houso of Repre?
sentatives of this State, as far as
practicable, and in cases not thereby
contemplated; by parliamentary
usages. This was made a Special
Order for Tuesday.
Rausier called up the Special Or?
der, which was tho report of tho
committee to whom had been referred
tho protest filed against the delega?
tion from Anderson taking their
seats. Tho committee recommend
that the matter bo tried directly by
the House; and that the committee
bo authorized to send for persons
Au animated disenssion ensued.
J. 13. Moore representing the delega?
tion, as ono of its members, mndo nu
elaborato and able argument, review?
ing the ground on which the delega?
tion had appeared, and presented the
same creditials as the other members
in tho Houso-that is tho certificates
of General Cauby-that they were
duly elected. He said that a protest
had before this been filed with Gen.
Cauby, ami for moro than two
months he had refused to issue their
certificates. In the meanwhile he
appointed a Special Commission to
investigate the matter, which com?
mission bad gone to Anderson, ex?
amined persons, returned with a
favorable report to General Canby;
and upon tho strength of this, the
General had issued their certificates.
That many of the persons who were
parties to this new protest, were
obscure, ignorant persons, who did
not know what an affidavit was; and
ono of them, who swore that there
was a fraud at Greenwood Poll, was
a register at Calhoun's, twenty-five
miles distant, tho sumo day; and,
could, thereforo, have gained his in?
formation only by hearsay, which was
no evidence. All that he and his
colleagues asked, was justice-they
neither begged nor would accept any
favor. They wau ted the persons, not
tho affidavits, beforo the House, as
one could bo cross-examined, and the
other could not.
Whipper, DeLargo, Crews and
others, opposed tho report, on the
ground that it would entail an enor?
mous expense to the State; when, OD
motion of Rausier, amended by
Whipper, tho Houso adopted an or?
der for tho committee to proceed at
onco with the trial, and decido for
themselves all questio J that might
be raised in tho progress of the trial
by either party, subject to the ulti?
mate decision of tho House, when
the final report is made, and that all
affidavits bo admissable as evidence.
Tho concurrent resolution of the
Senate, appointing J. W. Denny, of
Charleston, State Printer, was taken
The question was asked whether
any lower bid had been submitted,
and tho response was made that one
had, but that the discrepancy amount?
ed to or.\y a few cents per page, and
the committee who first had the sub?
ject matter in charge, took into con?
sideration tho fact that Mr. Denny
had done the work of the Convention
to the great satisfaction of those who
had employed bira for that purpose;
and that they were also satisfied that
ho was in possession of material, Sec.,
to proceed directly with ibis work
so they did not think the discrepancy
in tho charges was sufficient to war?
rant depriving him of the State print?
No mention whatever was made of
a bid which had been submitted, and
ranked/nih/ one dollar a paye less than
the lo . cst of t he other estimates. It
is supposed that this is to bo account?
ed for by tho fact that it did not come
from a member of tho Republican
party. Mr. Forriter, however, per?
sisted in pressing tho inquiry as to
tho lowest bid, and was tho indirect
instigator of a motion to refer tho
whole matter to tho Committee on
Printing; which Speaker Moses, by a
ruling utterly inconsistent with tho
decisions of such lesser lights as Jef?
ferson and Cashing, declared to bo
out of order. So, under tho opera?
tion of his gag law, tho repart was
agreed to, and tho tax-payers fleeced
out of thousands of dollars.
Whipper offered a resolution, pro?
viding that leaves of absence should
not bo granted to more than ten
members at any ono time, save in
cuses o? personal sickness, or severe
illness in tho family.
A resolution to anthorizo tho Chair
to appoint a chaplain, was laid upon
tho table; and on motion, tho House
adjourned, until Monday next, at 12

through the back window, on Thurs?
day night, by burglars, and a quan?
tity of provisions, besides sixteen
dollars, abstracted. The thieves

NEW BOOKS.-Messrs. Bryan Sc
McCarter have favored us with co?
pies of two new works, just pub?
lished by Messrs. Harper Sc Broth?
ers, New York. Tho first is by the
author of "Birds of Prey," "Elea?
nor's Victory," etc.-Miss M. E.
Braddon-and is entitled "Dead Ssa
Fruit." The finale of tho story
imparts a wholesome warning:
"Scheme as ho may, there is always
tho bitter taste of the ashes which
remain for the mau who bas plucked
the Dead Sea apples that hang ripo
aud red above tho path of life." The
story is very entertaining, and be- *
longs to the series of "Select Novels"
issued by tho Messrs. Harper.
"The History of a Mouthful of
Bread," is the rather singular title of
a neatly bound volume, wiitten by
Jeau Mace, for the entertainment
and instruction of children, on the
science of physiology. A difficult
subject to render interesting to chil?
dren, but Monsieur Mace has per?
formed, with great skill and tho?
rough completeness, the praise?
worthy task. In tho first volume, he
explains, in plain language, the
structure and offices of tho organs of
mastication, doglutition and diges?
tion, with the effects of food upon
tho body, elucidating tho manner iu
which a mouthful of bread is made
to contribute to tho nourishment
and building up ot tho human body.
This book has been adopted by the
University Commission at Paris ns a
prize-book, and is worthy of tho ?
perusal of adults who desire to
obtain, in an easy and pleasant in ai: -
nor, a thorough knowledge of tho ?
action of tho delicate and wonderful Wk
digestivo apparatus of man.
