WADE HAMPTON, Chairman.
We aro gratified to learn of the
determination of the Democrats of
Mississippi to hold an election for
President and Yioe-President, de?
spite the usurping legislation of
Congress to the contrary. The right
of a people to vote, who are citizens
of a State, pay taxes and support the
Constitution of their country, is one
that underlies the very foundation of
a republican form of government,
and mnst sooner or later be recog?
nized. There is a point beyond
which submission to tyranny ceases
to be a virtue; and when the opposi?
tion takes the peaceable form of the
V?all??, it pnnnofc loo impoaoliod as
either illegal or revolutionary. This
is the point arrived at when tho De?
mocracy, conscious of the support of
their brethren throughout the entire
Union, can now put down their feet
in face of the carpet-baggers, and
say to them "thus far shall ye go and
FoLLT OF RADICAL RECONBTRUC
HON.-In. one of his reoent speeches,
Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio, in referring
to tho radical reconstruction, happily
quoted tho old saying of tho Romans,
that "for a retreating foo they would
build a bridge of gold." Thero could
not be a wiser maxim. How have
the radicals respected this maxim?
by burning the bridges and desolat?
ing the land. Is that peace? lg
that reconciliation? Even radical
hearts must now echo tho bitter
answer. But radical hands are in
the treasury, and radical ambition is
bout on retaining the public offices.
The hands eau only bo kept there,
and tho ambition of radicals can
only be gratified, by playing out the
game of oppression and false as?
sumption of Southern disloyalty. It
has gono too far-all must now be
left to the hazard of the die.
A SURREPTITIOUS ISSUE OP NATIOAL
BANK NOIES.-A New York oity bank
recently reoeived, on deposit, a fifty
dollar note of tho First National
Bank of Now Jersey, and sent it to
that bank for redemption. The
officer of that institution returned it,
saying that tho signatures were forged.
Tho plate boing gonuino, and the bill
bearing tho treasury stamp, thorc
was no possible way for tho publie to
guard against the fraud, and tho
holders of the note sent it on to tho
Treasury Department at Washington
to ask who would father tho loss.
Mr. Hubbard, Comptroller of the
Treasury, in reply, writes as follows:
"I can only state that, in my judg?
ment, the loss must rest upon the
party who deposited the note with
your bank, until such party can be
relieved, through its acceptance by
tho preceding holder, and so on,
from hand to hand, as prior holders
oan be ascertained. Tho faot is
established, that this impression of
fifty dollars was surreptitiously taken
from the office. At present, how?
ever, no provision of law, nor money
appropriation, exists, to enablo this
department to redeem tho noto or
indemnify its holder. Tho fifty dol?
lar note roferred to is roturned here?

Quarters to Radicalism.
Jin. Barron: With the view pf
placing before our friends the pro?
gress of conservatism, and as an
illustration of what may and ought to
be done with the colored people in
behalf of Democracy, we beg leave
to set before your readers an account
of a meeting held in Spartanburg
village, on Tuesday evening, the 18th
Notice had been extended that a
colored Democratic Club would be
A goddly number of both whites
and blaoks wero present.
Colonel Stobo Farrow, who has
been, since his return from the Na?
tional Convention, devoting, in our
Distriot, his time nnd talents to the
great cause, explained the objects of
the meeting, in a plain, forcible and
effective manner, proving to the co?
lored men that the real and perma?
nent interest of their race was identi?
fied with tho native whites and with
the Democratic party. Upon con?
cluding, au invitation was extended
to those colored persons who were
willing to join in organizing a co?
lored Democratic Club. Thirty-four
colored men responded to the call,
and openly and enthusiastically
avowed their determination to join
and to work for tho Democratic
Earty. Several of those who joined
ave heretofore been among the
most prominent and active members
of the Union League. Eliphos Halli?
gan, who was a candidate for the
Legislature at the last election, on
tho radical tiokot, not only joined
the dub, but made a speech, avowing
his dissatisfaction and disgust with
the radical party, and his determina?
tion to use all his efforts for tho sue
cess of the Demooratic party.
Our colored friends, Minor and
Lee, of Columbia, and Anderson, of
Uniou, were present, and gave
efficient aid both by their speeohes
and by their influence, in private, for
a day or so previous to tho meeting.
They have done much good among
the colored people in this District,
by their straight-forward, honest and
manly course, in earnest support of
During tho meeting, Wm. K.
Blake, Esq., delivored a well-timed,
eloquent and effect i ve speech, con?
gratulating the meeting on its suc?
cess in breaking the ranks of tho
radical party at this place and form?
ing tho nucleus of a colored Demo?
cratic party, which will redound to
the good of the colored man and the
conservativo cause in this Distriot.
Arrangements are in preparation
to follow up. this meeting with simi?
lar ones, both in town and in the
District. Too much praiso cannot
be awarded to Col. Stobo Farrow for
his zeal and efficiency in organizing
and pushing forward this movement
to "carry the war into Africa"-in
earnestly urging that the colored peo?
ple, rightly dealt with, could be made
"good Democrats." Encouraging
results aro already in sight. And iii
the old iron District wo talk about
rolling up a majority of the blacks,
with an undivided whito vote, for
Seymour and Blair. Lot tho ball be
kept moving. DEMOCRACY.
"Lot us havo peace," says Con?
gress, with a fresh Reconstruction
Act which gives thc Presidential bal?
lot to Florida, Arkansas and other
carpot-bag States, while it takes the
ballot from every conservativo State
at tho South.
"Let us havo peace," says Sum?
ner, with a demand that negroes be
admitted into Congress, and that
Congress shall pass a law coercing
negro votes in all tho States of the
North, East and West.
"Let us have peace," says tho Chi?
cago platform, while making one
form of government for States South
of the Potomac, and another for
States North of tho Potomac.
"Lot us have peace," says the samo
platform, with ono currency for tho
pensioner, tho soldier, tho laborer
and the man of business, and another
for tho bond-holder.
"Lot us havo peace," say tho radi?
cals, with constitutions, as in* South
Carolina, which allow tux-payers to
the amount of $500 in the Legisla?
ture to imposo a tax of $2,000,000
upon the whito peoplo of tho Stato.
Gentlemen, a truo peace means
justice, honesty, fair dealing between
man and man. This you do not pro?
poso, but its vory opposite; and there
can be no peace while tho radical
party lives and reigns.

DEATII OP REV. P. T. KEITH.-On
Saturday last, August 22, passed from
earth tho spirit of the venerable and
beloved rector of St. Michael's
Church. He was born 26th Septem?
ber, 1801. Mr. Keith was a man of
gentle, loving heart, without guile or
taint of worldliness. Cheerful and
courteous, he was also manly and de?
cided in his opinions and his con?
duct. Highly esteemed and respected
by the community, he hold the warm
affections of his flock, who will miss
his kind face and mourn the friend
so linked with the cherished memo?
ries of the past, and so associated
with Christian example and consola?
tion.-Charleston Mercury, 2ith.
NEGBO OUTTBAOB.-During a pro?

THE CROPS IN ENGLAND.-Tho
Mark Lane Express sums np the con?

follows: "Wheat is uncommonly
good, both in quantity and and qual?

fair but not a heavy crop; beans n
good crop; oats a fair but not a heavy
crop. Prices of wheat aro going down
rapidly and will continuo low until
seed time next spring. The prospect
of help for stock, owing to prevailing
drought, was getting worse daily."
A letter from Romney, West Vir?

LOOKING OUT FOR SHOUTS.-There
aro some people always looking out
for slights. They cannot pay a visit,
they cannot even receive a friend,
they cannot carry on the daily inter?
course of the family, without sus?
pecting some offenco is designed.
They are as touchy as hair-triggers.
If they meet an acquaintance on the
street who happons to be pre-occu
picd with business, they attributo his
abstraction to somo motive personal
to themselves, and take umbrage ac?
cordingly. They lay on others the
fault of their own irritability. A fit
of indigestion makes them seo im?
pertinence in everybody they como
in contact with. Iunocont persons
who never dreamed of giving offence,
aro astonished to find some unfor?
tunate word, or some momentary
taciturnity, mistaken for an insult.
To say the least, tho lu bit is unfor?
tunate. It is far wiser to tako tho
moro charitable vio\v?>f our fellow
boings, and not suppose a slight is
intended, unless the noglect is open
and direct. After all, too, life takes
its hues in a great degree from tho
color of our own mind. If wo are
frank and generous, tho world treats
us kindly. If, on tho contrary, we
aro suspicious, men learn to be cold
and cautious to us. Let a person got
tho reputation of being touchy, and
everybody is under moro or less re?
straint; and iu this way the chances
of an imaginary offenco aro vastly
increased. Peoplo who fire up easily,
misa a deal of happinoss. Their jaun?
diced tempers destroy their own
comfort, as well as that of their
friends. They have forever some
fancied slight to brood over. The
sunny, 8erono contentment of less
selfish dispositions ?iuver visits them.
LADIES, DON'T WEAR Hion HEELS!
An exchango says, narrow shoos,
with high heels, which are now all
the fashion, are serious obstacles to
a good figure. Without a solid basis,
it is impossible to sustain tho form
in an erect posture, nnd poised, as
our young girls aro, upon the stilts
of fashion, it is not easy to presorvo
their equilibrium. They thus ha?
bitually bond forward or backward,
to tho right or to tho loft, until, in
the course of time, thoy become per?
manently misshapen in ono direotion
or tho othor. And this is not all.
The hoels of fashionable shoes worn
by ladies aro so small at the bottom
as to afford little or no support to
the ankles.-This in part accounts
for tho peculiar walk of those who
woar them, and this is causing many
weak and sprained ankles, for whioh
there is no euro. An ankle once
sprained is ever after liablo to bo in?
jured hy a very slight cause. No
lady who vaines her comfort in lifo,
and her limbs upon which sho de?
pends for locomotion, will wear high
hoels tapered off as is now the

IMMIGRANT vs. CARTET-BAGGER.
Tho difference of meaning between
"immigrant" and "carpet-bagger" is
RH wide as tho difference between cuo
who arrives in a country to fix his resi?
dence there, and one who comes into
it for the purpose of confiscating the
silver spoons of ita inhabitants. The
former is nn "immigrant;" the latter,
however, is only a partial definition
of the "carpet-bagger."
The word is a compound of "car?
pet" and "bagger." It8 meaning, is
the component of two ideas. Tho
fir8t half, "carpet," suggests the idea
of a "carpet-knight"-a bloviant
swashbuckler of mighty valorous
ness in a drawing-room, when there
are no bellicose male persons pre?
"Bag, JJ.-a sack or pouch to put
anything in." "Bag, v. a.-to put
into a bag." "Bagging, n.-the act
of putting into bags." "Bagger,
n.-one who performs the act of bag?
From these standard definitions,
the meaning of "carpet-bagger" will
plainly appear. The "carpet-bagger"
is a bloviant swashbuckler of mighty
renown for something other than
military services, who goes into the
Southern States to bag the emolu?
ments of office. His residence, if he
have any, is in a Northern State.
His taxable effects exist only in im?
agination. His worldly goods are
contained in a small hand-sack,
usually made of carpeting-a circum?
stance which ia supposed to have
suggested to the inventive American
mind tho word which ao foroibly and
accurately expresses the true charac?
ter of this wandering political Mi
cawber-this vagrant demagogue in
quest of spoils. There is no other
word in the English language which
will express the truth, with all its
nice shades of meaning, so correctly
and so well. There is no name for
the combination of ideas which an
office-holder in the South involves,
but the name "carpet-bagger."

in Vicksburg, thero was a large De?
mocratic procession, iu which were

which, at tho request of several citi?

Post Quartermaster. The parade of
voters being largo and impressive,
alarming the carpet-baggers, several
of them called on General Gillern
and complained that his officer had
furnished flags to a procession which
was "impeding reconstruction."
"Gentlemen," said the General,

years to make them carry tho flag,
and now you aro mad because they
