Thc Presidential Pcotptcz.
Tho New York Round fiable is one
of tho most scholarly an^high-toned:
of tho literary weeklies of the coun?
try. Its influence, the Augusta Con?
stitutionalist thinks, is very considera
blo with the more intelligent of tho
Northern people, and, to this extent,
it is a representative journal. For a
long time, the Round Table fonght
shy of tho Democratic nominees, and,
np to a recent dato, prophecied evil
to them. But tho tide of public
Opinion has boon too strong for this
able paper, as it was likewise too
mighty for the Herald. It does not
relish the idea of giving way all at
once, but tho signs of ultimate nban
? donment of its original position are
plain and unmistakable. It >-ays:
"Oar conviction was freely ex?
pressed, at the timo of tho New York
nomination, that, in seleoting Gover?
nor Seymour for thoir standard
bearer, the Democrats had set the
seal .to their own defeat. Did we
judge merely from indications on the
surface, this conviction might romain
unchanged. Wo have, however, be?
come persuaded that there is a pow?
erful under-current of popular dissat?
isfaction with radical rulo and radical
measures; which is gaining rather
than losing strength with tho passage
of time, and that, consequently, the
chances (which at present we estimate
as nearly even) may incline in No?
vember, in a victorious degreo, to tho
Treating of tho wonderful result in
Kentucky, and the all-porvadiug zeal
of the Democracy, it ruefully cou
fesses tho opposite symptoms in tho
radical canvass. Tho man who was
to sweep tho country with a whirl?
wind of popular enthusiasm is worse
than a wet blanket. The Round
Table is sorely puzzled at this, but
frankly acknowledges it, thus:
"Tho remarkable unpopularity of
General Grant, meanwhile, appears
to increase from day to clay. Whe?
ther it is that tho peoplo instinctively
realize tho impropriety, in a republic,
of placing a military man as chief
ruler over territory hypothetically
free, but which his sword hos just
subdued, or that the Cornmaudor-in
Chiof's personal characteristics begot
a constantly augmenting dislike, it is
certainly true that for no military
mau over presented as a caudidato
for the Presidency in this country
has there ever been so little genuino
enthusiasm. Tho weakness of sumo
parts of tho Democratic platform and
the ridiculous indiscretions of sumo
Democratic speech-makers, are, per?
haps, more than counterbalanced, in
noxious efficacy, by General Grant's
utter, want of magnetism, and the
mistrust or dislike with which he is
regarded by tho people."
The Round Table evidently deems
this awful "want of magnetism" a
sure prognostic of the radical defeat.
It virtually concades tho impossibili
* ty of making a man President by the
popular voice who is mistrusted and
disliked by tho masses. It concludes
"From present indications, wo are
led to boliove that tho three great
States of New York, Pennsylvania
and Ohio will throw themselves into
the scale for Seymour and Blair; and,
should they do so, not all tho hosts
of Now England, backed as thoy may
bo by tho West and South, by voters
black or white, constitutional or un?
constitutional, will avail to prevent
tho Republican forces from kicking
From the reluctance with which
the concession is made; from the
high reputo of the paper, aud it*
independent character, we aro justi?
fied in regarding the present attitude
of the Rowid Table as a most notable
conversion and most auspicious
omen. General Grant may, possibly,
win through a bayonet revolution,
thongh that chance is a desperate
one. Ile oim never win through thc

Radical Negro movements Sn linton
The following communication lias
bcon fnrnished by a prominent gen?
tleman of Union District, whoso
assertions cpu' bo fully relied upon.

Mn. EDITOB: The contemplated
armed demonstration upon this
place, a few weeks since, under the
leadership of a radical negro named
John Bates, which was frustrated, by
tho prompt and peaceful action of
our white citizens, is fresh in the
minds of most of our people
John Bates, who then gavo his
orders to his armed bands, announced
then, as one with authority, and ns
signed by his Excellency Governor
R. IC Scott, that armed preparation
was made by hundreds of negroes,
from this and adjoining Districts, to
march upon this place, break open
tho jail, lot loose a negro charged
with a high criminal offence, pillage
tho stores, is well known hore. In
the object of peace, and to avoid a
collision of races, our citizens ap?
pealed to Governor Scott, as tho
should-bo great conservator of tho
peace of tho State. He considered
tho matter, and sent up a young man,
ono of his clerks, to see John Bates,
and have tho anticipated difficulty
At tho first depot in this District,
the messenger of peace met negroes
armed with muskets, and, through
some of thom, Bates was notified to
meet him at Unionvillo tho next day.
Ho came; a private conference was
held in the room of tho young man;
and Bates consented to go to Colum?
bia. With this, and othev reasons,
tho expected raid was averted.
After tho return of John Bates,
our peoplo hoped that quiet would
provail, and, instead of armed guards
and armed men treading down tho
products of tho field, we would have
quiet and order, and would seo peace?
ably-disposed men cultivating tho
crops, which they had contracted to
do. But, instead of a change, Bates
hos risen from a Major of battalion to
Commandor-in-Chief of tho military
forces of this District. A few days
ago, while going to Columbia, he
told a colored mun that bo could
raise 2,000 men in twenty-four hours.
Bates lives on tho premises of a
widow lady; keeps his armed guard;
has his public meetings on her lands,
where armed negroes congregate, con?
trary to her wishes. To these meet?
ings his mon gather, passing through
Last Friday, ho marched out with
about sixty or eighty mon, a portion

They took possession of a church,
used by whito people, on the way,
whore the night was made hideous tc
tho neighborhood, by their loud
noise and boisterous conduct.
On their return next day, theil
behavior was such, in passing houses,
as to bo amenable to the criminal
courts, for riot, if wo had law 01

A few milos from Bates' headqnur

along tho highway, a week or st

by stones thrown by a negro, und re

Yesterday, Bates was expected t
arrivo from Columbia, and abou
sixty or eighty negroes, many c
them armed with guns, were at San
tuc Depot, in this District, awaitiu
his arrival. During tho day, an
some time before the urrival of th
train, a difficulty occurred between
white man and negro, in which th
former was cut with a knifo. Th
whito persous present sucoceded i

When tho train arrived, the negroc
wore closo by, tho armed ones wit
their guns at "a shoulder."
When Bates stepped out, his mo
movod up towards him. A geuth
man approached Bates, showing hit
that he was unarmed and that his ir
tentions wero pacific, and asked wh
this demonstration was made: at th
same time alluding to his (Bata
having his hand on his pistol. On
of tho ?inned guard stood with hi
weapon at "a present," and cookec
Bates replied that he was commant
er-in-ohi?*! of tho militia of Unio
Di.itrict; that he always carried h
pistol. Peace was urged, and tb
negrco3 wore asked if they were fe
peace, to go off. The parties separa
ed, and were moving off, the white
being satisfied that no further di:
tnrbance would he offered, when on
of the negroes fired into the crowd
of white persons, and immediately
thereafter fired another grin. A
white man, who was hit, then opened
the fire with a pistol, on the part of
the whites, repeating, as fast as ho
could, whon tho firing became gene?
ral on both sides, the whites advanc?
ing. There wore about twenty-five
white persons present, with but one
gun, (loaded with small shot,) and
ten or twelve pistols. Sate- was
soon foremost, by many paces, in
leading tho flight of his party, and
it ja said came near upsetting a horse
in his hurry to leap a fence. Tho
blacks soon made their escape
through tho woodsnud holds. Three
whites were wounded, slightly. Ten
negroes oro heard of who aro wound?
ed; two seriously.
Fortunately, for tho cause of truth,
the affray occurred while tho train
was standing nt the station, and was
witnessed by both white and colored
Bates left his wounded to take care
of themselves, and made, it seems, a
bee-line for tho Charlotte Railroad.
Before you receivo this, I guess ho is

bull story, and probably figures us
ono of tho martyred heroes of radi?
calism. . Tho wounds of tho negro
disabled were dressed by ? Demo?

ho was otherwise kindly cared for.

Tho oouutry prays for rest, and the
peoplo for that peace and quiet
which never can bo obtained so long
as tho Jacobin party aro in power.
Third -Tho only sound hopo for
business men in tho future, and for
tho full restoration of tho Uni ,n, is
in tho success of the Democratic no?
minations. D?mocratie success
means not alone constitutional liber?
ty, equal taxes and a better state of
feeling and business, but it means
that confidence in republican institu?

Fourth-Tho Jacobins are divided.
They call each other hard names;
have no confidence in each other;
have nominated their candidates on
tho solo ground of expediency; and
have no bond of union but the weak
and miscrablo bond of hostility to
the Democratic party.
Finally, tho success of tho Demo?
cratic party means tho reduction of
tho standing army one-half ut least,
and a saving thereby of $50,000,001)
per annum. It means, also, reduced
taxes, greater economy and a stricter
accountability to tho people. Tho

ANENOI.ISII OPINION.-The London
Cosmopolitan says :
"The radicals havo had their day,
and dono ns much mischief as the
country will suffer. It is now the
turn of tho conserv tives and Demo?
crat?-tho only party whose princi
ciples, old as tho Constitution nnd as
sacred-aro ablo to preservo the
Union without a second civil war,
and to save it from tho manifold evils
which tho first hus brought along
with it. Tho time is ripe for a re?
action against tho sham philosophers
and malignant philanthropists nuil
nigger-worshippers, like Ben. Butler,
Wendell Phillips and Thaddeus
Stovens, and all tho othor charlatans
and mountebanks wfio, untaught and
? unwarned by tho lessons of history,
sought to reproduce in the new world
tho villainies and horrors of the old,
and to emulate to tho oxtent of thoir
fangs and tho volume of their venom,
tho doings of Robespierre, St. Just,
Coutuon and other poisonous spawn
of the French revolution. America
has had more than enough of KUCII
tormentors; and longs, as Ireland
did, in the olden day, for a saint like
St. Patrick to make an end of them.
We fervontly hope and implicitly be?

man to do it, and that all ?he black

The select and highly intelligent
audience which attended the lecture
of this eloquent and learned prelate,
last night, enjoyed an intelle- 'mal

Grecian, Roman and Babylonish
civilization; and he gathered his

as the central figure in tho picture.
It was artistically and eloquently

was made. No session of the Senate

DEATH OF A. G. BASKIN, ESQ,-A
; private letter from Hickory Tavern,
N. C., announces the death of Mr.
Baskin, which ocourred on the 20tl:

lawyer, and had filled several officei
in Richland District. A few week
ago, feeling that his end was near, Ix
requested his friend, Joseph T
Zealy, Esq., to carry him to tin
Lome of his children-that ho inigh

request was complied with; and, a

quietly. Mr. Baskin was about fort;
years of age.

colored man-Wright, of Beaufort
during the absence of Presiden
Boozer, occupied tho Chair. Thi
was more than some of the whit
members could stand, and they ic
dignantly retired. The Senate
from Greenville opened on the Sent

How TO FORETELL.THE WEATHER.
A correspondent of the Augusta
Chronicle makes the following asser?
tions relative to the weather:
. A red sky (mind you, now, sky,)
in the morning signifieth rain.
Lightning in the North signifieth
Snails crawling tu uud up trees,
signifieth rain; the higher up the tree
they crawl, thu heavier will be tho
fall of rain.
Light cob-webs across tho road, or
bushes, etc., at early morn, signi?
fieth fair weather.
A red sky (mind you, now, sky,
not clouds,) at sun-set, signifieth fair
A new moon, with its horns turned
down, indicateth a rainy moon.
A now moon, with its horns turned
up, indicateth a clear moon.
Ants working ut early dawn in?
dicateth a clear day.
Evening red and morning grey,
will light the traveler on his way; but
evening grey and morning red, will
pour down rain on traveler's head.
In winter, a red sun-set indicateth
wind and severe cold.
NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.-Special at
tention is called to tho following ad?
vertisements, published for tho first
time this morning:
J. & T. R. Agnow-Cheese.
Ti B. Jeter-Extra Trains.
The Round Table says that recent
investigations reveal the fact, that the
coast of New Brunswiok, Prince Ed?
ward's Island, New Jersey, and a
portion of the Eastern Atlantic
shore, are gradually uprising, while
those of tho Bay of Fundy uud
Greenland are slowly siuking.
Should this phenomenon continue
for ten centuries, the map of tho
American coutinent would, in 2900,
present au entirely different appear?
ance. The Hudson's Bay and Jersey
shores would become fruitful valleys,
with countless inlaud seas. Where
now the banks of Newfoundland lie,
there would then be peninsulas con?
nected with the mainland, as the
banks of St. George are at present.
Tho passage from Ireland to America
would then only take four days.
The whole Atlantic coast-line of the
United States would bc advanced us
far ns the bend made by the Gulf
stream, and the .--mall islands, banks
and rocks of the Bahamas would fuse
into larger islands, resembling those of
the West India group.
A CARPET-BAOOER MAKES A CON?
SERVATIVE SPEECH-.-In New Orleans,
recently, a white radical, hitherto
regarded as the personification of all
that is most objectionable to tho
Southern whites, and recently u dele?
gate from dissatisfied Republicans to
Washington, was invited to address
them, and his speech was, iu sub?
stance, as follows:
"My friends, I am a carpet-bagger.
I admit it. I have been among you
for some time, and havo never ceased
to advocate your canso iu the press
of the North-in the throe leading
Republican newspapers of Now
York, Washington and Philadelphia.
But I am going to leave you. We
aro all going to leave you, and yon
will soon be alone. My advice to
you is to unite yourselves to those
who9o favor it is your interest to
secure, l?e guided by ILueu who
alone can furnish you with work and
food and clothing. Join yourself to
tho people of tho South. We are
going. Wo cannot find you work to
support you. Your interest lies with
th oso who can."
FACTS POR FARMERS AND LARORINO
MEN TO STUDY.-If a farmer, during
the course of a year, hus bought 8800
of goods and groceries, he has paid,
in making tho purchase, at least $300
in taxes. Tho banker gets his income
tax from his depositors. They get
theirs from the men with whom they
deal. Labor pays it all. The crime
of Jacobin financial policies is that
tho people aro taxed for the benefit
of classes. Bond holders havo $2,000,
000, on which they receive an income
of six per cent in gold. They pay
no tax. Tho national banks are un?
necessarily paid by the Government
$18,000,000 yearly. Moat manufac?
turers are exempted from taxation,
and the country is taxed, for their
benefit, $163,000,000 iu gold-tho
amount derived from custom? in the
year ending on tho 1st of June.
The case of Enoch Arden has been

them that every power authorized by
the Constitution and laws, would bo
used to secure freedom of ballot,
without interference from State or
Federal troops. Tho President takes
the ground that the Constitution for?
bids the maintenance of standing
armies in any State; that the Act of
18G5, disbanding and forbidding the
militia and voluntcor force, is abso?
lute in the South; that militia duty
is incumbent upon every citizen;
that it is an emergency force, subject
to be called from the plow or loom at
any moment, and from which no
citizon can escapo; but that a 'stand?
ing army of paid troops in any State,
unless called for and controlled by
Federul - authority, is repugnant to
the Constitution and laws. Every
power of Government will be used to

It is generally conceded that there
