THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET.
HORATIO SEYMOUR, OP N. Y.
GEN. P. P. BLAIR, OF MISSOURI.
Tuesday Morning, July 28,1868.
Democratic Meeting at Salada: Fac?
Saturday was a proud day for tho
Democracy of the vicinity of Saluda
Faotory. They bad given out word,
for several days previous, that they
were going to haye a barbecue and a
meeting of tho Democracy, to ratify
the recent nominations of the Na?
tional Democratic Convention for
President and vice-President. Not
ivithstandlng the unpropitious ap?
pearance of the morning, tho place
.of meeting was thronged, at an early
hour, by a large number of the male
population-freely interspersed with
numbers of the fair sex, who had
come out to grace the occasion with
their approving smiles. When the
hour for speaking arrived, Colonel
Palmer, who presided on the occa?
sion, introduced Col. J. P. Thomas,
who addressed the. audience os fol?
FKLTJOW-CITLZENS ons LEXINGTON:
I am here, at your bidding, to coun?
sel with you upon the questions of
the hour. I regret that I cannot
bring to you a larger political expe?
rience and a more influential name;
but what I am, and what I have,
these I am ready to contribute to the
vital cause that now demands our
energies. And I may truthfully add,
that no one can have a keener per?
ception than I of the magnitude of
the present issues, or a more deter?
mined resolution to seek such a solu?
tion of the problem before us, as will
secure the hest interests of this
noblo commonwealth, of which we
are proud to bo citizens.
Let us, now, consider tho political
present by the light of the political
past of our country, and lot me sug?
gest tho duties and responsibilities
that pre- s upon nc. Ever since the
establishment, in 1787, of our Fede?
ral Constitution, two great parties
havo ever divided the Uniou, and
this division has boen based mainly
upon n difference of opinion as to the
true character of our complex system
of government. Tho ono party, un?
der Mr. Jefferso. 's lead, assorted tho
Stale rigJtts' theory; the other, under
Mr. Hamilton, advocated the national
view. The one seeing danger in con?
solidated, centralized power, pro?
claimed the rights and sovereignty of
tho States, and regarded this theory
as alono consistent with the grandeur
of tho country and tho liberty of the
citizens; the other, apprehending
anarchy from excessive power in the
States, favored a strong central Go?
vernment. Amid all the party
changes that have takeu place in tho
country, thia issue hos always stood
out in bold relief, and drawn the
line of demarcation between Federal?
ist and Republican, between Demo?
crat and Whig, between Democrat
On account of their traditional
conservatism aud comparative weak?
ness, the Southoru States naturally
adhered to the Jeflersonic view of
the Government. The question of
State rights became the subject of
debate, aud tho statesmen of the
South and those of the North rose to
tho height of the great argument,
and brought to boar upon this point
ali the resources of mind and oratory,
of genius and learning. But the
point remained unsettled. We had
grown great and prosperous; had ex?
tended our limits from the Northern
lakes to the Mexican Gulf, from the
Atlantic to tho Pacific, and still the
true relation between tho States and
the General Government romaine!
unsettled. Finally, by the seces?
sion of the Southern States in 1861,
the matter was submitted to the arbi?
trament of the sword; and as the
contest advanced, tho question of tho
continuance of tho institution of
African slavery was submitted to the
same arbitrament. The lato great
I do not intend now to outer into
tho details of that gigantic etrugglo,
attended, as it was, with displays of
valor, genius and devotion on both
sidos, that have compelled a world's
admiration. But I will say, that tho
loyalty due to the Government we
now acknowledge is not inconsistent
with our fidelity to the sentiments,
the principles and the memories of
our Confederate cause. It may be
premature to deck with laurels tho
brows of tho living, but not t?o soon
is it to strew with garlands tho graves
of the dead iu tho causo. Praieo,
then, to the soldiery-officors and
men alike-who live in honor, or
died in glory. Upon many a hard
fonjjht battle-field, thoy showed their
fidelity to the "lost cause." This
they did amid the vollied thunders
of first aud second Manassas; in the
tangled wilds of the Wilderness; in
tho Titanic wrestling and charges
around Richmond; upon the flame^
girt heights of Gettysburg; nt Shiloh;
ut Sharpsburg; ut Chioumauga; in
the trenches around Petersburg, and
upon a hundred other fields o? fame,
were the arms of the South, illus?
trated. This illustration ouuie frpm

It came from Hampton, the Murat

not disposed to take a dead issue
from its grave. We aocept tho re?
sults of the war, and stand now upon
those living and vital issues that have
since sprung up. Sprung upon the
country, North as well as South, by
that party which, having become the
depository of all the malice, cruelty,
hate and vengeance engendered bv
the war, seeks, by means foul as well
as fair, to rule or ruin a bleeding
I But what, it may be asked, are
these resulta settled by the wai*, to
which I have adverted? i" answer,
thal they are contained in the questions
of secession and African slavery. From
the first bnttlo of Bull Ruu to thc
end of war, the United States Go?
vernment made pledgo nfter pledge,
that ita object was, not to destroy Ou
Southern Slates, but to compel them
to acknowledge the authority of thc
Union. Upon this pledge, they call?
ed upon the Northern people to con?
tribute men and money to the war.
Upon this pledge, they called upor
tho Southern people to lay dowr
their arms. Upon this pledge, thej
worded off the intervention of foreigt
powers; and it was upon this pledge
given or implied, that Leo at Appo
uiattox, Johnston nt Greensboro
Taylor in Mississippi, nud Kirbj
Smith in Texas, surrendered thei:
armies und folded their colors. Ir
tho spirit of this pledge, we believi
that Grant and Sherman met Lei
and Johnston; aud had these Coufe
derate Generals and theso Coufede
rate soldiers anticipated what ha:
since occurred, we hesitate not to de
clare, that the lires of tho so-called rc
hellion, would not now be quenched
and in the mountain fastnesses of on
Southern country, the colors of seces
sion would this da3T be flying.
Nor was President Johnson tin
mindful of this pledge. He regarde)
tho Southern States as still in th
Union, and holding that, under th
Constitution, Unconstitutional powe
of tho State resided in tho whit
people thereof, ho proceeded to carr
out the reconstruction programme a
laid down and begun hy Mr. Lincoln
Accordingly tho sovereignty of th
States was evoked, and Convention
of tho peoplo were ordered. Th
Conventions assembled; the situatio
was gracefully accepted; the demand
of tho Executivo were complied witL
and an era of peace, prosperity an
harmony seemed about to dawn upo
a distraoted aud shattered couutn
But at this point, the fell spirit c
Northern sectionalism, embodied i
the Republican or radical party, intei
posed, und chauged tho entiro eui
rent of reconstruction. Tho leadei
of that party saw that tho Souther
States, restored upon a white bash
would increase that Democratic eh
mont which, at the North, was pr?
paring to snatch from their rud
grasp tho control of the countn
Hence, pnrty tactics decreed thr
loyalty meant adhesion to tho radio
party, and that no Southern Stal
should be permitted to enter tl
Union, except through the braze
gate-way of radicalism. In tho wore
of a Northern speaker, to enter tl
door of the Union, it became nece
sary "to knock with black knuckles,
Thon was inaugurated, under tl
auspices of those angels of ponce
Messrs. Stevens, Sumner and Bu
1er-the choice scheme of radical r
construction. Then began tho marc
of constitutional invasion-then b
gan that series of tyrannical oxa
tions, which show how worse than t
tyrannies, is tho tyranny of the legi
Follow-citizcus, lot me briefly sta
tho course of radical reconstructs
First. The infamous Howard Amen
ment was submitted to the State
This amendment required tho Soot
orn people to ignoro their past in tl
war; to place tho seal of disgra
upon those gallant and noble spiri
who had led thom in the coun<
chamber and the field; to tramp
upon the fresh mounds of thc
martyred dead; to commit base trc
son to the principles and sentimec
fpir^hich they hod toiled and prayed
and fought, as never women prayed
before or men worked.
To the enduring honor of the
Southern States, they rejected the
amendment. They were poor, bleed?
ing, desolated, ravaged States, but
amid the ruins of their homes and
their hopes, the people of the South
preserved the whiteness of their
souls, and almost unanimously voted
to reject this ungenerous proposition
from an ungenerous party. They
wanted peace, bat not such peace as
dishonor could purchase.
But this was only the first stop in
radical reconstruction. The radical
party proceeded to commit next what
may be called the great political
crime of the century-a crime that
has uo parallel iu history, ancient or
modern, sacred or profane. Ami this
was the deliberate subordination of
the wealth, the intelligence aud the
integrity of the South to the rule of
ignorance and depravity-the placing
of the political power of tho South
in the hands of aliens, renegades and
half-civilized negroes-the slaves of
yesterday; the freedmen of to-day.
In other countries, and in other
times, after war had spent its fury
upon a desolated laud, it has been
permitted to the inhabitants to call
together thc wisest, the best und the
purest of their number, to rear
again the fabric of government.
But this poor privilege has been de?
nied to the people of the South.
Not enough our broken hopes aud
ruined fortunes, not enough our lost
cause, not enough the pride aud the
flower of the South fallen upon the
field of battle, but we, members of
tho proud Caucasian family, upon
whose brow God himself has written
the signs and the symbols of empire,
we are placed under the rule of au
inferior race, and members of this
race, together with renegades and
trading politicians, aro authorized
to frame organic laws forH-he white
people of this Southern section of
tho Union. And not only this, but
under the same authority these same
parties, with the aid of the bayonet,
aro carrying out the details of legis?
lation, and preparing non-tax-payers
and nou-property-holders themselves
to impose upon their bettors thc
heavy burdens of taxation. This is
the result of radical reconstruction.
This is the great wrong for which wo
arraign the radical party, and to
which we will never quietly submit.
This is the issue whioh we meet un?
der tho folds of tho Democratic ban?
ner aud under the fair auspices of
Nor, fellow-citizens, do wo meet it
alone. In consummating their great
wrong against us and ours, tho radi?
cal party have violated the Constitu?
tion, usurped executive and judicial
powers and menaced the liberties of
tho North as well as the South.
Hence, the Democratic party ot the
Union has organized to overthrow
that party and to save the country.
That party, fellow-citizens, lately
met in Convention, iu New York, und
that Convention became the earnest
of n united country. Every Stato
and every Territory in this broad
land wero represented in the Demo?
cratic Convention by their truest and
ablest men, and tho utmost harmony
marked its deliberations. After a
separation of eight years the North
and the South, for the first time met,
and, discarding tho animosities of
the past, resolved to uuito against a
common political enemy and together
to work for the welfure of a common
country and a restored Uniou.
Fellow-citizens, that Convention
has given U3 the principles and the
men wo wanted. The Democratic
party has taken high ground in our
behalf. It becomes us to engage
earnestly and thoroughly in the can?
vass before us, to seize with our
strong hands the standard of the De?
mocracy, and to make au earnest,
united, protracted effort to plant it
upon the heights of success.
Tho triumph (of tho Democracy
will bring us peace and will prepare
tho way for our prosperity. But let
us conduct the canvass discreetly and
temperately. Let no bayonet jlash or
sword gleam emanate from our ranks.
Wo hopo to accomplish our ends by
peaceful instrumentalities. Already
at the North our opponents seek to
prejudice our cause by calling tho
Democratic platform a "rebel" plat?
form, and the Democratic nominees
.'rebel" candidates. Let us, by no
indiscretion of lauguago or coaduct,
give oause for these allegations. Let
us show that we are true to tho Union
and the Constitution, and that, with
our Democratic allies at the North,
we are in rebellion only against that
merciless and Godless faction which
seeks to rear its bloated fortunes
upon the ruins of the free institu?
tions of the land, and whioh, to re?
tain its usurped power, would build
the elevation of the negro upon the
degradation of the Southern whites.
. I have thus, fellow-oitizens, shown
how our political relief must come
from the D?mocratie party. The
radical party is the party of hate,
vengeance and misrule. The Demo?
cratic party is the party of recon?
ciliation, peace, Union and the Con?
stitution. The one offers us degrada?
tion and death-the other hope and
fife. We have made the choice, and
may Heaven defend the right,
i But, fellow-oitizens, I feel that I
would fail to do my duty on this oc?
casion, if I did not throw out the
I idea that after all, our political sue
cess in this campaign is bat a pre?
liminary step in th? great work of
Southern redemption and prosperity.
The truth is, no appeal to tho great
names of the past, no mere political
triumph will, enable as to heal our
bleeding wounds, or retrieve our
broken fortunes. Could Calhoun
himself arise from his honored grave,
and establish his creed of Govern?
ment, this would not save our im?
perilled cause.- What we need nt the
South is wealth; what wo require is
industrial development. With wealth
comes power; and power will pre?
serve for us what statesmanship or
party triumph has won. We must
work; we must invite immigration;
wo must move out on tho field of
diversified labor. Get wealth in tho
South; get capital in the South; get
numbers in the South, and with or
without a Democratic triumph, we
shall be enabled, sooner or Inter, to
solve tho problem in our favor. Let
mo, therefore, urge you, fellow-oiti
zens, not to neglect tho farm, or tho
factory, or the work-shop, whilst
you give some of your time to
And now, in conclusion, let me ask
you to be of good cheer. The signs
uro auspicious. The great Democra?
tic heart of the country seems to be
stirred to its depth; and we have the
promise of a glorious victory. SEY?

Next came Col. Meetze, of Lex?
ington, who endeavored, in a very
earnest manner, to urge upon the
Democracy the great importance of n
united and persevering effort to cast
the vote of this State for Seymour
and Blair in November next. At the
close of Col. Mectze's speech, Col.
Palmer introduced tho following pre?
amble and resolutions, which were
unanimously and enthusiastically
Whereas, The Democratic party of
the whole country, by their delegates
in Convention nssembled, have
adopted a platform of principles,
entirely satisfactory to us, and have

Resolved, That as one of tho dui;
orgauized Democratic Clubs of th'
State, and, therefore, entitled to

most earnestly recommend the imme?
diate consolidation of the two Stat
Central Execntivo Committees, wit!
the Chairmanship of the consolidate
committee in.tho city of Columbia, i:
order that tho approaching canvas
may ho conducted with tho systor

action of tho party beforo it wn

so, our patronage and support; au
that we will protect und defend ther

After the adoption of tho rosolr

Maj. C. C. Turner, of Spartanburj
was next introduced, aud favored the
audience with an account of the pre?
sent condition and future prospects
of the mougr?l party in his County,
interspersing his address with a pro?
per seasoning of humorous anec?
dotes, well told, to the great amuse?
ment of the crowd.
Then came Maj. James G. Gibbes,
the advocate of all that is noble aud
generous in both social and political
life, and thc irrepressible opponent
of mongrelism in every shape and
form. He entertained the audience
with a brief recital of a portion of
what he saw and heard in his recont"
visit to New York, and assured them
that the signs aro auspicious for a
glorious Democratic triumph in No?
At tho conclusion of Maj. Gibbes?
speech, the audience was favored, by
the glee club, with a spirited Sey?
mour and Blair campaign song, writ?
ten expressly for the ocoaaion and
sung with great spirit and auimation,
to the great delight of the audience.
At the close of this song the crowd
was invited to thc table, where, nnder
the superintendence of Capt. J. N.
Kaughman, a bountiful supply of the
substantials of life, consisting of
barbecued meats, food bread, vege?
tables, ?ka, was dispensed to the hun?
gry crowd. After a thorough discus?
sion of thediunor, which was decided
to be excellent, a good portion of the
audience again repaired to the stand,
when they wero entertained with a
speech from the colored Democratic
war-horsoof Columbia, James Minor,
who urged upon his colored friends
the importance of co-operating with
the white gentlemen of the South,
and thus securing for themselves
friends who will stand by them when
the carpet-baggers shall have left for
more congenial climes.
Minor was followed by Pleasant
Goode, Stowers, and other colored
Democrats, all of whom ondeavorcd

busily engaged providing for our
wants, Simeon J. Hook, S. W. Hook,
Martin A. Skull, James Roof, W. M.
Buff, Luther Hook, Jacob Roof,
Daniel Kinsler, aud other well known
citizens of Lexington District.
It is to bo hoped that the canvass,
thus favorably opened in Lexington,
will bo prosecuted with unflagging
zeal by tho Democracy of that Coun?
ty, and that the ides of November
will witness the total rout, "horse,
foot and dragoons," of that infamous
party who are endeavoring to destroy
tho white Government of our fathers,
and to substitute in its stead a moa
grelized despotism, with Grant, the
butcher, as military dictator.

Gen. Hampton was serenaded in
Charleston, on Saturday night, and
responded in his clear, ringing voice,
which at once commanded silence
among the excited throng. He was
listened to with breathless attention,
interrupted only by the irrepressible
cheers that broke forth at intervals
during his speech. He eulogised the
soldiers and sailors of the North,
who, as they had fought gallantly,
would not now treat a brave though
defeated people with scorn and con?
tempt. Nothing but malice was to
be expected from the politician and
speculator, but tho soldiers and sailors
had become frank friends as they bad
been open enemies.
GRAND DEMOCRATIC DEMONSTRA?
TION.-We learn that all the arrange?
ments aro complete for tho demon?
stration this evening. Riohland
continues in tho Democratic van.
Let our citizens turn ont, this even?
ing, in a generous rally. Let them
swell tho procession. The cause is a
vital ono. Tho Democracy triumph?
ant promises peace and prosperity to
tho country. Gen. Hampton and
other distinguished speakers, will
address tho people. Carolina Hall
will be open to the ladies and the
speakers. Numerous transparencies,
with their mottoes, will add to the
interest of the occasion. See the
Gens. Kershaw, Chesnut and
MoGowan will also address the meet?
ing. Hons. J. B. Campbell and A.
Burt will likely be present.
STATE CONVENTION CAM?BD.-It
will be seen that a State Convention,
of tho South Carolina Democracy,
has been called. This is well. We
hope that when the roll of the Dis?
tricts shall bo called, that not one will
fail to respond. The Convention
will meet in this city, on Thursday
evening, August 6.
For the first time in several months,

EADICAII BX-PLAT.-Upou the
question of taxing out of existence
cotton and rice, which was up ? day
or two since before the South Caro?
lina (?) Legislature, ono rad. said, it
was "a great bill, a wise bill, it will
raise $2,000,000." "It will do more
than that," said another rad. "How
is that?" said the first. "It will raise

and tho sanguine party sloped. This
ts legislation with a vengeance. -
and whole-souled fellow-citizen, Mr.

yesterday-the erection of a-flag-staff,
with a handsome United States flag,
12x18 feet, over his building. A
number of citizens participated, and
upon the conclusion of the flag-rais?
ing, several bowls of puuch, kegs of
lager, etc., Were disposed of, and the
health and long Ufe of the proprie?

RENDER UNTO GESAB THE THINGS
WHICH ABE CAESAR'S, &C.-We are by
no means disposed to be captious or
fault-finding as journalists. Our
position is too obscure, when brought
into comparison with that of our
friends of the Charleston Daily News;
but wo think that tho extreme origi?
nality and wonderful enterprise of
that now offspring of the Democratic
party, might enable it to give us
credit for tho reports of tho legisla?
tive proceedings, which they copy
from our insignificant columns.
HOME AGAIN ! HOME AGAIN ! !-It
affords us eiucero gratification to an?
nounce that the excursion party of
tho General Assembly of mis-repre
sentatives of this State, returned last
evening, in good condition, from the
Greenville trip, and without having
encountered any obstruction at the
hands of the Ku Klux Klan. We
say this safe return of the honorable
gentlemen, is peculiarly gratifying,
as wo had great reason to apprehend
that this Greenville excursion was
projected exclusively in the interests
of the Klan, which is kuown to have
more than two or three million ad?
herents in the upper Districts of our
State, and to be ruling with absolute
terrorism over tho truly loyal-people
of our State. How the party man?
aged to escape being thrown down
some bunk, precipitated in some
river, or bayonetted to death by
theso dreadful bugbears, is some?
thing that the unreconstructed can?
not understand; but so it is; The
party is here, and profuse in their
commendations of tho road and its
appointments, although every mile
of it, before starting, was reported
to be garrisoned by a regiment of the
famous K. K. K.
