HORATIO SEYMOUR, OF N. Y.
GEN. F. P. BLAIR, OP MISSOURI.
Wednesday Morning. Aug. 19.1868.
Agreeably to a resolution adopted
by tho recont State Convention, the
following gentlemen are appointed
by tho State Central Executive Com?
mittee canvassers in tho interest of
^Stato at large-Gabriel Cannon
and A. P. Aldrich.

WADE HAMPTON, Chairman.
Shall We Bo Taxed without Repre
For forty-five days, tho capital of
South Carolina-a aovoreign and in?
dependent State-hos been disgraced
by a mongrol party of ignorant ad?
venturers, ronegade natives and stu?
pid negroes, constituting a self-styled
Legislature, and assuming, under the
sanction of tho bayonet, to make
?aws for the government of the land?
owners and intelligent masses of our
people. How this unnatural and il?
legitimate organization found birth,
is well known. How it came to poss
that tho spawn and fungi of Northern
society, and tho newly-emancipated
and uneducated black men of the
South, came into and are now exer?
cising power, needs no repetition.
Startling as tho anomaly is, it pre?
sents, nevertheless, au incontroverti?
ble fact; and deep as may be the re?
gret entertained by evory citizen who
is interested in order and the welfare
of the State, at this painful feature
in so-called free government, tho un?
prejudiced world will do the white
men of the South the justice to say,
that they have borno the infliction of
this crying disgrace with wonderful
Tho press of the land has, with
raro exceptions, counselled the peo?
ple to moderation, and the people
have submitted to tho injuries im?
posed on thom without attempting to
exercise any other remedy than that
afforded by tho ballot-box, and then
even in tho faco of infamous frauds
openly perpetrated by the party in
But patience, .sometimes, ceases tc
be a virtue, and the continued donia
of God-given privileges and rights,
justifies the resort to extraordinary
means for their recovery and per?
petuation! To our apprehension,
that moment is approaching in the
history of our down-trodden people,
and whilst wo deprecate any recourse
to physical power for tho vindication
of our rights, as inexpedient and un
wise, wo do not hesitate to comment
the employment of other agencies,
quite as officient, in securing a speedy
but peaceful solution of the diffionl
ties by which we aro embarrassed,
Not the least obvious of these is the
refusal to lend countenance or aid te
a government in which we have nt
participation or representation
whilst it is proposed, at the sam*
time, to tax us to doath for its snp
Tho so-called General Assembly o
this State is now engaged in perfect
ing a scheme which will place all tin
burdons of taxation upon the proper
ty-ownere of the State, a large olas
of whom are denied the right to ai<
in tho legislation of the nation o
State, whilst it exempts tho vor
people who enjoy all tho power am
aro freed from the burthens of gc
vernment. Nor is this ail. It is o
the eve of seizing the funds of th
State-we moan the bills receivable
for tho redemption of which in goo
faith the credit of the Stato stand
pledged-seizing them on tho ?am
principio that tho highwayman oom
mands you to stand and deliver-an
then by express resolution, they ar
to bo paid to the membors at a di
predation of thirty per cont. Nearl
$100,000 of these fonds are to be
stolen from the Treasury and thrust
upon tho market, where it is obvious
tha? if circulated at all, they will bo
only ! at an enormous discount. Those
bills, mu receivable for taxes, how?
ever; and herein lies tho hope of the
carpet-bagger, who takes Si.30 for
every dollar claimed to bo due him
by the State as compensation for his
services as a member; and then if ho
has any taxes to pay-which is, at
best, doubtful-he returns thom to
the treasury at their par value. So
for overy thousand dollars issued, the
State, under tho most favorable cir?
cumstances, can receive only sevon
hundred in return.
Thoro is one way to obviate tho
otherwise ovil effects of this manifest
outrage, and wo commend it to the
consideration of our people. Refuse
to take these bills, wider any circum?
stances, or al any price. That they
will bo eventually worthless, no ono
doubts; and it may as woll bo under?
stood now, at home and abroad, that
the tax-paying people of tho State
thoso from whoso purses is expected
to como tho redemption of these
bills-utterly repudiate them, as they
vi ill any other debt created by a Go?
vernment in which they are not repre?
sented, and whose acts, like those
whioh gavo them hirth, they regard
as usurpations, and unconstitutional,
revolutionary and void.
TU?; Quo Warranto C ase.
At 10 o'clock, Monday morning,
judgment was delivered in this case.
The gentleman representing the
State and all of the counsel for the
respondent being present. The
judgment will be found in another
part of our paper. It disappoints
no one in tho result, and tho reasons
will probably attract our attention
and share our notice in a future issue
of the paper. If this be law, then
God save the country! Tho military
powers of the Constitution has
almost as much to do with the ques?
tion as has the man in tho moon.
The judgment means not law, but
arbitrary and tyrannical power
neither more nor less. After tho
hearing of the injunction, tho coun?
sel for the respondent said to the
Court, that the gentleman who (mis)
represents the Stato might take just
such order as ho pleased. They
would make no further opposition at
this time. They would require until
Wednesday morning to preparo their
grounds of appeal. Tho effort of
the counsel for the respondent has
been to shape tho caso so as to get it
I up beforo tho Supremo Court of the
j United States. Wo aro informed
that what appears to the uninitiated to
be easy work, is not very easy under
the Acts of Congress and thc ruling
of tho Supreme Court. Wo trust
that the facts may bo so moulded as
I to tako the case up. The points, as
! presented, ure as follows:
1. A quo warranto is served upou
Mr. Walker, tho Coroner.
2. IIo responds, and exhibits bis
commission and the Constitution of
1790, and tho amendments thereto,
and tho Acts of tho Legislature of
3. W. B. Johnston replies, and
shows his commission and election
under thc new negro Constitution of
4. Thomas P. Walker rejoins, that
tho supposed Constitution of 1868 is
no Constitution and is in conflict with
tho Constitution of the United
If this conflict can bo shown, the
Supreme Court will entertain juris?
diction upon tho ground that a law
of the State is in conflict with tho
! Constitution of tho United States.
And this has been clearly shown in
the argument. It may be necessary,
however, to submit the question first
to the Supremo Court of the State,
and from that opinion tako the caso
up. In any event, let us have the
case, now clearly made, taken up and
decided hy the highest law authority
in tho land. More hereafter.

conversation he hold with Thad. Ste?

On speaking to him of his congres?

Until the war began, I was a plodder
without influence, and since it began,

added, after a pause of a moment or
two, "I'm not over prond of my con?

A Paying Investment.
THE best investment is that which gives
tho largest return for the money laid
out. A sick man, unable to attend io bis
business, must necessarily lose bis time,
whilst his expenses goes on with unremit?
ting waste. Ono dollar spent for that
restorative cordial, "HEINITSH'S

ings of health, removes disease, invigo?
rates the wholo system, aud, in short,
makes tho sick man well. What better or

one dollar? For salo by
