HORATIO' SEYMOUR, OP N. Y.
GEN. F. P. BLAIR, OF M?SSOURL
Sonday Morning, August 2, 18C8.
State Democratic Convention.
A Convention of the, Democratic
party of the State of South Carolina
is hereby called, to meet at Colum?
bia, on the hight of Thursday, the
6th of August, for the purpose of
nominating electora for President
and Vice-president of the Unitod
States, and for other purposes.
Tho Convention will be composed

according to the rule of representa-'
iion in tho House of Representa?
tives; WADE HAMPTON,
Chairman Central Committee.
fainer xvyan on "Irlsli Radicals."
Th? Banner cf (Father
Ryan's paper) contains some pungent
remarks on the formation of au
"Irish Radical C?ob" in Richmond,
whose proceedings, it says, "would
bo ludicrous, if they were not too
mortifying to contemplate." Tho
article is evidently from tho pen of
Father Ryan himself, and after refer?
ring to thc fact that several Irishmen
had shown their adhesion to radical?
ism by .discontinuing the Banner, it
continues as follows:
"We have charity enough for a
Northern American radical, or a Pro?
testant radical; but none whatever
for an Irishman or a Catholic who
embraces the political creed of that
party. They have no excuse, no pre?
text I They have seen their own land
deluged; with the blood of martyrs,
their religiou proscribed, their priests
hun ted down as if they were dogs,
their property confiscated, their
schools closed np, their children de?
prived; of the means of education,
their families starved to death, their
leading mon hung or banished for no
other orime than loving Ireland and
tho glorious old faith of St, Patrick
too mach., They have seen and felt
all this, and to-day they seo radical?
ism preaching ana teaching the same
bigotry and intolerance that led to all
their woes and sufferings. They see
in ^rant a hater of their race and
relig.on, in Colfax a persecutor of
their race and creed, in Breckiuridge,
the radical apostle, a would-be de?
stroyer of foreigners aud Catholics
in all the leaders and journal.; of that
party the life-long intolerants and
persecutors of everything foreign and
"And yet these Riohmond Irish?
men dare to stand up in tho light of
day and proclaim themselves mem?
bers of such a party! 'Oh! shame,'
where is thy blush 1* Is there uo
feeling, no sentiment of self-respect,
at all left in these minions of power,
these tools of degradation, those vile,
polluted creatures? Are they so de?
based, so ignorant, so wicked, that
they can bo bought away from the
faith of their fathers and barter the
glories of Ireland for a policeman's
pince, or a constable's baton, or act
as paltry lackeys to corrupt, and de?
graded political tricksters? Shame
on thom! Ireland spurns them
America despises them! As for us,
we loathe them; we pity the unfor?
tunate oity of Richmond that it has
to endure the presence of these de?
bauched croatures, and thank them
for giving us the gratifying privilege
of erasing their names from tho sub?
scription books of the Banner of the
South. They are not wanted. We
don't want them to stand among the
names of tho pure women, and true
men, and innocent children of the
South, who are so faithful and de?
voted to the 'lost cause;' we don't
want them to stand among the names
of the sincere and earnest Catholics
and true-hoarted Irishmen, who love
principle better than place, and
would not disgrace their religion or
native land by sacrificing the inte?
rests and tho property of their
adopted country. Yes, let them go!
and in the condemnation of their own
consciences let thom dwell. Perhaps
they may, ero long, open their eyes
to the folly and wickedness of their
course, and repent of tho evil
thing which they bavo dono. If
not, let_ them forswear their faith
and their nationality. The ano?
maly is too great-too striking to
exist. Thoy cannot bo Irish Catho?
lics and American radicals. They
must give up tho ono or tho othei,
and tho sooner the better."
Sccwtnry Soward is reported to
have another real estate speculation
in view. It is tho purchase, for a
naval station, of an island in the East
Indies, rich, fertile and beautiful, in?
habited by a few Malays, and which
will place us upon an equal footing
with any European r>ower jn the
.Vb? Xi?t? Irruption lato tne Senat?.
^ph? Baltimore Sun says: '.iv^Bx
"Some of tbe carpet-bag Senutors
who have lately floated, as debris,
upon the corrupt stream of radical
reconstruction .politics i uto the
Unitod States Senate, are said to
have disgusted old-fashioned Repub?
lican Senators by tho uncouth and
ravenous appetite with which they
rushed at onco at the ' flesh-pots.
The pr6sonoo alono of suoh men in
such a plaoe was enough to make
tho decorous old stagers stund aghast.
Suoh n position as u seat in tbe Sen?
ate is usually supposed to be tbe
rich reward of the training, experi?
ence, superior gifts and statesman?
ship of a long life. It has always
beon considered a post worthy of
any man's ambition. Tbe Senate
has been looked to as excelling, in
dignity, stability, and conservative
influences, all other deliberative
assemblies in America. It has been j
the arena v.-hero the truly great men
of tbe past conducted those grand
intellectual and political combats
which tho country can never forget.
Although not up to tbe ancient
standard now, yet that body has
continued to retain, in good degree,
tho select public mon of tho country
in talents, attainments and reputa?
tion. There aro men there learned
and famous in law; there are hoary
statesmen; there are elegant scholars;
and most of them (there; are excep?
tions) have risen, acaording to the
usual roles of political promotion,
step by step to their present exalted
position.'. Certainly, it mas; be irri?
tating in the extreme to suoh men to
see a herd of adventurers, not at all
reputable for intelligence or charac?
ter, who had paid nono of the cost
which they had paid for greatness,
rushing into tho highest legislative
places in the laud* But the crown?
ing mortification which followed tho
dumping of the carpet-baggers out
of their reconstruction cart into tho
Senate, was the eager howl they set
np at once for their money, insisting
that they should have, compensation
as Senators, not from tho date at
which their States were recoguized
and entitled to representation, but
for the entire session, for the whole
of the Fortieth Congress, since
March, 18G7. Even the New York
Times is compelled to say that, while
notable every day to agree with Mr.
Garrett Davis, it entirely agrees with
the motion, which be pressed to its
passage, limiting thoir pay to the
actual time of their service. Yet,
why should Seuators be disgusted
and astounded? Who brought those
men there? What did they come to
the Senate for, except pay and pro
vand? What could bo expected of
the grubs engendered by the politi?
cal corruption of reconstruction, but
that they should mako their way at
once to tho middle of the public
cheese? Certainly, thoso Senators
who bnvo been most zealous and
persistent in tho reconstruction in?
cubation should not now bo ashamed
or enraged at their hybrid offspring."
Tho Washington correspondent of
tho Boston Advertiser (radical)
"Tho new impeachment schemo
brought forward in tho House, on
Saturday, resulted in a lesson which
some of the so-called carpet-baggers
may take to heart, with great benefit
to the country and themselves. Mr.
Hamilton, of Florida, was ambitious
to shine in tho matter. The Speaker
had told bira privately, over and
over again, that tho subject could
only be introduced when no other
business was before tho House, but
Mr. Hamilton persisted in rising to
antagonize it with more important
subjects, and, when he got the floor,
instead of presenting bis impeach?
ment matter, he begau to lecture tho
Speaker, charging him with slight?
ing both him [Hamilton] and his
proposition. The Speaker thereupon
administered to the half-fledged Rep?
resentativo a rebuke that will not
soon be forgotten by any ono in the
chamber. Old members say that it
was one of the most severe ever
delivered from the chair, and as well
merited as it was severe. The im?
peachment was quietly buried onde,
tho table of the Judiciary Commit?
Mr. Jefferson Davis and family
sailed from Quebec on Saturday last,
for Europe. It has been stated in a
Washington paper, that in his com?
ing trial at Richmond he will appear
by counsel. This may or may not bo
so; but we have reusou to believo
that tho circumstances under which
Mr. Davis sails for Europo, are suoh
as would make it desirable to remain
there, with a view of providing for
bis family. Unlike many of tho lend?
ing public mon of this country in
civil lifo, Mr. Davis is not a lawyer.
His original profession was that of
arms. He, therefore, cannot resort
to practice at the bar, as so many
others hnvo dono whose fortunes
were wrecked during the war. Hence
other employment is nocessary, and
tho expected opportunity of a com?
mercial connection with a house in
England for American business pro?
bably now takes him abroad.

GOOD ADVICE FUOM THE MERCURY.
ron THE MERCURY.-The Charleston
11 AHM DONE.-Private advices from
our most strenuous friends at the
North, request that we should pro?
test n gui nt the imprudent expressions
that have escaped some Southern
speakers, since tho adjournment of
tho National Democratic Convention.
It is represented to us that great
injury is accruing to tho canso from
such imprudence. We, therefore,
Bhall make no apologies for asking
tho attention of our public speakers
to tho fact. Wo are all desirous of
pushing on tho good work of success,
and no ono would voluntarily im?
pede it.? conree, who was awaro of
the fact. Whilst no man in tho
South .should be, and no true man is,
ashamed of our great lost cause; and
whilst when wo-speak of tho past, wo
should speak like true men, it is
I questionable whether at this time
anything is to bo gained by too
much reference to things that jar on
people's nerves. What wo want just
now is to WIN. Let us keep oui
powder for that purpose. Too much
is at stake to waste it now iu feux de
\joie. Let us have our pyrotechnics
next March. In the meantime,
friends, let us, without abatiug one
sentiment that is true, be cool and
steady, and givo tho enemy nc
advantage. Wo have a strong foo to
encounter. Wo can't afford to giv<
him all the advantage of positiou.
Lot us guard our flanks, make secure
our lines, and when the time oomcs
next November, let us down on him
like an avalanche, and double him
up like a grub-worm, and then scat?
ter him to the winds. Wo havo tho
power. Do not let us unnecessarily
fritter it away, in unavailing skii
mialling, and lieecclless, thoughtless,
scattering assaults. Lot us work,
and speak, TO WIN.

weather whioh we have had. Here is,
at least, one advantago of tho 100

POLTXIOAII CHANOE.-The following
from the Dayton Ledger is one of the
many ?vidences of tho political
change that is now going on in Ohio.
"Ohurlea Morris, of Troy, Ohio,
one of the leading lawyers of Miami
County, and hitherto un activo Be-'
publican, hos publicly announced his
intention to support Seymour and
Blair. Quite a number of other
prominent Bepublicans in Miami
County have renounced their former
faith, and tho Democracy there are
oven confident of being ubi*.', to carry
the County this fall."
Tho Philadelphia Age has the fol?
lowing communication :
"We feel proud to lenrn that 100
Gorman citizens in ono of tho upper
wards of the city, who have hitherto
I voted the radical ticket, havo declared
their intention to support Seymour
and Blair. The German citizens of
the Sixth Ward aro also flocking to
the support of tho Democratic party,
being unwilling to belong any longer
to such a corrupt, radical and revo?
lutionary party as that now iu power.
Tho Germans, not only in tho upper
wards, but all over tho city, ar6
coming into the Democratic ranks.
We toko pleasure iu stating, on tho
authority of Dr. Both, ono of tho
leading German citizens of tho Sixth
Ward, aud who is well posted as to
the German sentiment throughout
tho city, that three-fourths of tho
Gormans will support Seymour and
Blair and tho other Democratic
A couutry girl, in Iowa, having
been decoyed into a bouse of ill
fame, at Des Moines, the farmers of
the vicinity organized a vigilanco
committee, and at night took posses?
sion of the house, turned ul) the
inmates out of doors, and thou set
fire to the house. The building was
entirely destroyed. The missing girl
was not found, and it was feared
that the keeper of tho bouse, who
was arrested, would bo hung by tho
mob, as it was strongly suspected
that tho girl had been ruined and
Tho blustering Fenians have been
giving tho Canadians another warn?
ing of their terrible designs; and tho
Buffalo Courier, in its account of tho
late Buffalo Feuian Congress, says it
is empowered to announce, in their
behalf, "that something or other of
great moment has been determined
upon, and Canada and tho British
Empire, generally, will see what they
will seo before loug." Tho Fenians
certainly beat all the rest of tho
world in the way of threatening.
As Beast Butler was passing
through Baltimore, on Monday even?
ing, en route to Massachusetts, ho
was arrested upon two suits issued by
the Superior Court of Maryland.
One was on a suit for falso imprison?
ment, sued out by W. C. Wooley, of
Cincinnati, and the other by Kimber?
ly & Brothers, of Baltimore, to re?
cover 53,000 exacted of thom by Gen.
Butler, when commanding at Fortress
HOMICIDE.-A difficulty occurred
on tho 22d ult., on the plantation of
Mr. J. B. Campbell, between two
young freedmen, Charles Griffin and
Burrel Williams, resulting io tho
stabbing aud instant death of Wil?
liams. It is said the affair grew out
out of an assault by Williams on a
little brother of Griffin. A coroner's
inquisition was held, and Griffin ar?
rested and committed to jail.
A WEST POINT CADET APPOINTED
FROM SOUTH CAROLINA.-Tho York
ville Enquirer, of Thursday, says:
"Wo are pleased to learn that Geo.
Daniel Wallace, son of A. S. Wallace,
Esq., of this County, has received au
appointment as tho cadet at West
Point for tho Fourth Congressional
District of South Carolina. Ho is
required to report for examination on
the first of September."
Thirty bodies of those drowned at
Ellicott City, Maryland, in tho flood
on Friday, and seven drowned at
Baltimore, have now boen recovered.
Tho Baltimore City Council has ap?
propriated about $300,000 toward
repairing immediately tho damages
by tho flood, and relieving the suffer?
ers. Thousands aro still engaged in
dooring away the debris and repair?
Tho Indians recently assomble.d
at Fort Lamed, have disappeared in
a mysterious manner. It is supposed
that they havo gone to placo their
women and children in a placo of
safety before renewing hostilities.
They wore greatly dissatisfied because
a portion of their annuities was with?
held, in payment for depredations
committed on settlors.
THE OrnEH JEFF. DAVIS.-While
Jeff. Davis, lato of tho Southern Con?
federacy, is a wanderer on tho earth,
awaiting his trial for rebellion, Gen.
Jeff. C. Davis, a fighting Un ?ob sol?
dier of tho war, is head of tho military
department of Alaska, an empire
larger than thut of Austria. Who
could have thought it on tho evening
of the first Bull Run?
On Thursday, John Thompson,
the oldest known inhabitant of Long

advnuoed age of 104 years. Mr.
Thompson served in tho continental

The ?niled Slates Musical Revino,

is the publisher.
Finn.-About 1 o'clock, yesterday
morning, a fire broke out in the
kitchen on tho premises of Mr. R.
Howell, on Gervais street, near
St?rke's Hill. It was a wooden
building, and entirely destroyed. A
quantity of winter clothing and
blankets were consumed. Incendia?
Two candidates have been nomi?
nated in Camden, Baya the Charles?
ton iv>fr?j, to fill the vacaucy in the
so-called Legislature, caused by the
death of Solomon Goorge W. Dill.
David Cooper, alias Wbile, one of
the nominees, was arrested on a
charge of bigamy, a short time after
his nomination. While the other
candidate, the Rev. Jones, has been
charged with stealing.
TAKING CARE OE THC FREED ONES.
Another case was brought to our no?
tice yesterday, diametrically opposite
to the incident published in our last.
A colored woman, who has been liv?
ing with a Democratic family in this
city more than two years, fell sick, a
short time ago, when fdic wos care?
fully attended to by her white em?
ployers; a doctor employed; delica- j
cies, etc., furnished. During her I
entire illness, her colored friends a\>-1
peared to have forgotten that such an i
individual existed-not one of them |
called to seo the sick woman. Will
any of the lately discovered so-called
radical friends of the colored race do
as much? We trow not.
A writer in the Associate Reformed
Presbyterian, (published at Due West,
Abbeville District, ) having apparently
lost his temper, takes tho Plicenix to
task with reference to a paragraph
stating that tho catalogue of the
Erskine College was printed in Phila?
delphia, when it could have been
done in this State; and intimates
that a proposition was made to tho
Pluenix to do the work, but that the
charges was one-third more than the
Philadelphia printerdeinauded. This
is incorrect. Give us a trial, Mr. K.,
before making such ossertions. Ho
also refers to an article iu regard to
two denominational colleges located
in other sections of the State. If K.
will take the trouble to furnish the
iuformatiou which he desires to seo
spread before tho world, we will un?
dertake to rovise and print it.
The Legislature accomplished no?
thing, yesterday, of public interest
tho time being consumed principally
in reading a number of bills which
wo have already noticed. At tho
rate tho legislat ion of this delecto bio
Assembly is progressing, tho State
bids fair to be mulcted for a pretty
considerable sum before an adjourn?
ment is made. The Assembly has
been in session now for twenty-six
days-the usual duration of the
former Legislatures of this State
and yet not a singlo bill has passed
both Houses, and a large majority of
those which have been introduced are
still in the hands of tho different
committees, with very little prospect
of being reported upon soon. Tho
expense, so far, amounts alone, for
the per diem of the members, to
824,000, and when to this is added
tho pny of clerks, printing, station?
ery, hall hire, etc., tho amount swells
up to the vicinity of ?35,000. What
it will figure up iu the end is entirely
conjectural, but wo believe tho
amount will bo measured only by the
ability of tho State to pay the bills.

CHURCH.-A large meeting took placo
op yesterday nt Hbreb Church, in
Fairfield District A number of co?
lored persons were present. Tho
indicate had been invited to a full
and free discussion ; but no repre?
sentatives of that side ' appeared.
Jamea D. Trade well, Esq., J. G.
Gibbes, Esq., and Col. J. P. Thomas
addressed tbe crowd. Wm. Myers
(colored) and John Smart (colored)
also spoke to tbo freedmen present.
The remarks of Wm. Myers, ;who
is nu excellent mechanic of this city,
and a man of character and intelli?
gence, were capital in tono and sub?
stance. Ho stated, that he was there,
not because he wanted to speak, but
because bo felt it his duty to repre?
sent to bis race what he behoved to
bo their true interests. As for his
freedom and their freedom, he felt
more indebted to God than to the
mon either of the North or the South.
He thought that the interests of the ?
black man were so bound up with
those of the Southern people, that
it became tho colored people to live
in harmony with the whites of this
section. As he understood Southern
Democracy, it gnvo him civil rights,
aud held out to his people a suffrage
when they should become qualified
to wield* it. This was enough for
him. He knew the comparative
weakness of his people, and did not
want to seo them try conclusions
with a stronger and more numerous
race. As for himself, he intended to
link in his fortunes with the people
of tbe South, where he knew he
would have a better showing than at
tho North. Upon the whole, his
speech was unusually sensible and
manly, and bore the marks of great
At this meeting, Mr. McKinstry

trict, of which South Carolina con?
stituted a part, and in accordance
with the terms of the order, the Com?

in tho State only a sufficient number
to guard tho various posts and forti?
