The Charleston correspondent of
the New York World sketches white
man Lewis and black man Randolph
with telling raciness: i
Rev. T. W. Lewis is a white man.
Rev. B. F. Randolph is a thick
lipped, lustful mulatto. Both are
preachers; both are professors in the
Baker Theological Institute, (color
'ed,) established hero since the war;
both are editors of an obscure, dirty,
blasphemous, senii-Methodist, semi
political, all radical, little weekly,
published in this city, aud called the
Charleston Advocate; both are from
States considerably North of this;
Lewis hailing from Massachusetts,
and Randolph from Ohio; both aro
preaohersof tho Methodist J5niseopal
Chinch, and leading men in what
that church recognizes and supports
as.the South Carolina Mission Con?
ference. Of course the membership
is confined to tho blacks, who have
been allured by these "wolves in
Bheep's clothing" from tho folds in
which they were formerly nurtured.
Neither of these men could stand
a successful examination in Webster's
spelling-book, or write what I would
consider a creditable note; and yet
both aro duly registered as "profes?
sors" in high-sounding departments
of a Theological institution, whoso
catalogue is circulated in New Eng?
land, and embrace* a course of study
before which eveu tho students of
Princeton and Andover might well
The Advocate has but a handful of
subscribers in this section, for the
negroes are unable to read it, and
very few of tho white people even
know o' its existence. But with or
without, circulation, and however
contemptibly diminutive and badly
printed, it receives a McPherson
douceur of tho public printing to tho
tune of 35,000 per annum, us per?
haps the only "trooly loil" paper in
the State. With this, and such sub?
scribers as the editors pick up in
their summer visits and peregrina?
tions among the New England saint?,
tho radical orgau in reconstructed
South Carolina is maintained. Tho
cntiro working force, when tho office
was visited not long since, consisted
of ono dirty wbito man and one
black "devil," (/. e. negro appren?
tice.) Tho dirty white man has since
been appointee! by Gen. Canby an
alderman of this city, with a number
of negro confreres assigned to similar
prominence and power, by tho me
j morable coup de grace of tho great
satrap who now lords it over tho two
Carolinas. What has become of tho
black "devil" deponent kuowcth not,
nor need your readers care.
The mulatto Randolph is the con?
genial associate of Lewis in tho edi?
torial sanctum and chair professional.
When tho Radical Negro League
Junta was arranging its machinery
for tho control of tho State, it was
ascertained that this city was over?
stocked with candidates, and Ihufc
a distribution would bo necMsary.
Accordingly, numerous cargej-llag?
gers hero were uncceremoniously,
assigned to counties in the interior;
aud thus Reudolph, professor in tho
Baker Theological Institute, and
editor of the Charleston Advocate,
and living in this city, was duly
returned, aud officially recognized
by General Canby as a delegate to
tho Convention from Orangeburg,
eighty miles distant in tho interior.
And, in like manner, the whole nest
of adventurers, harbored hero under
tho shadow of the citadel, were pro?
vided for in a Convention audacious?
ly termed "constitutional." By this
manouvre, Randolph added to his
other iucomo tho eleven dollars per
diem and mileage, as a member of
that African assemblage.
While a party of Orangeburg ne?
gro burglars were on their way to
tho county jail in chargo of tho
regular law officers, they were res?
cued by an armed band of freedmen.
Tho officers obtained assistance and
pursued tho party, when a light
occurred, resulting in tho capture of
several of the rescuers, two of whom
were seriously wounded, aud have
since died. Their dying declarations,
made unsolicited in tho presence of
their attending physicion and two
United States soldiers as witnesses,
solemnly affirm that Rev. B. F. Ran?
dolph, Ohio negro, preaohor, editor,
burnt district performer, conetitu
tiou-maker and Senator from Orage
burg, suggested, authorized and
ordered them to attack the sherifTs
porty and release the burglars vi et
annis. All this within a few weeks
past, in Cauby's District and under
Cunby's eye, ior the papers here
have published the facts, and yet
there is no military commission
ordered to try this reverend professor
for the murder of these two men, of
I which he ia clearly guilty, if there is
I any truth in the law maxim: facitper
aliurn, facil per se. But when the
pestilent Dill was killed in Kershaw,
doubtless by some of his owu party
whom he had outraged, some of the
best citizens of that locality were
dragged from their homes by a de?
tachment of Cauby's soldiers and
imprisoned hero, where they are still
confined, and it seems there is not
a particle of evidence against thom.
But Randolph is a radical, and in?
stead of going to Castle Pinckney
and thence via military commission
to the State's prison, goes to Colum?
bia and occupies a seat in tho Senate
of South Carolina. And the same
Randolph was a delegate from South
Carolina in the Chicago Convention,
giving the radical nomination to
Grant and Colfax.
The now post office law agreed
upon by tho Committee of Confer?
ence of both Houses of Cou gross,
introduces some new and important
"changes in the mode of conducting
the business of the department. It
provides for the return of all letters
on which tho name of the sender is
endorsed, if not called for within
thirty days; reduces the fees on
money orders; doubles the compen?
sation of postmasters for tho pay?
ment of money orders; allows weekly
newspapers, sent to regalar subscrib?
ers in the County where published,
t<-> be delivered, free of postage, from
the post office nearest tho place, of
publication; authorizes tho issue .bf.
duplicate money orders for such as^

the Postmaster-General to appoiut a

him power to create in his own de?
partment a foreign mail service
bureau, at a yearly expense of $8,000;
gives him another chief of division
at a salary of $2,500; makes it felony

SOUTH CAROLINA BAPTIST STATE
CONVENTION.-This body assembled
in Newberry on Friday last. Rev. J.
Culpepper, of Darlington, delivered
the introductory sermon. The Con?
vention was organized by the election
of Rov. J. L. Reynolds, D. D., Pre?
sident; Rev. J. ?. B. Dargan, D. D.,
Vice-President; Rev. J. F. Morral!,
Secretary; and Professor C. H. Jud?
son, Treasurer. The Herald says:
"Delegates appeared from nearly
overy section of the State. Resolu?
tions were offered with reference to
systematic beuovolence, the South
Carolina Baptist, and Forman Uni?
versity. Furmau University seemed
to be tho chief subject of interest
during the Convention. This insti?
tution is located at Greenville, S. C.,
and, owing to the loss of tho endow?
ment fund, by the late disastrous
war, was represented in a critical
condition. On this subject, many
interesting and stirring addresses
wero made, and at once contributions
and pledges wero made to relieve the
University from its presentpecuniary
pressure. Tho spirit of interest and
liberality with which the rnonibers of
the Convention rallied to tue support
of this \nstifutiou, was highly com?
mendable. Tho Convention ad?
