We lenrnHhat tho meeting at Ma?
rlon Court Honso, on tho 7th inst.,
was a great snccess. Tho whole Dis?
trict seemed to have gathered to?
gether, and the spirit was earnest
and resduit- and true. Tho large
assemblage of both sexes and all
classes were addressed by General
Hampton, General Kennedy, Colonel
Graham and H. Covington, Esq.,
and the oolored people were talked to
by Goode and Stowers, of this place.
Well done for Marion. In this Dis?
trict, Gen. Harllee, Cob Mullins and
others are working nobly in tho
We come noxt to the Sumter de?
monstration, on tho 8th inst. Dar
ing the canvass, wo havo not ns yet
witnessed a grander and moro impos
ing gathering. It was a mass meet?
ing of Kershaw. Williamsburg, Dar
lingtou, Clarendon and Sumter, but
Sumter was chiefly represented. Tho
bounty and the chivalry and tho freed?
men of old Sumter were assembled
on the occasion. Tho procession was
formed nt the Court House, and
marched, with Muller's oxcollent
brass band at tho head, to tho Aca?
demy Grove, wboro a flue stand for
the speakers had been erected. The
Rev. Dr. Furman made an earnest
prayer. Gen. Hampton wau first in?
troduced and addressed himself chief?
ly to the freedmen. He suggested to
them that their rights would bo se?
cure with a triumphant Democracy
that their true interests are to be Bub
8erved by identification with the
Southern people. He advised them
not to put their faith in tho vagrant
carpet-bagger, but to attach them?
selves to the sons of the soil-to the
people of the South, who own the
property and have the means of giv?
ing employment and affording them
material aid. Ho advised thom to go
to work, to husband their gains and
acqniro property. He spoke to these
peoplo kindly and considerately, and
his langungo ought to havo bad a fine
effect npon them.
Judge Aldrich was next introduced.
The Judge ruado A stirring address,
in which ho urged tho peoplo to ral'y
and work for the success of tho Do
niocratio party-spoke of what that
party had done for tho country and
how it came now to put the country
once again upon i,ts former career of
greatness and glory. Alluding to the
charge that the South hated the flag
of the country, he denied the asser?
tion, and claimed that, inasmuch as
the South had won glory under that
flag, it was dear to her. As tho flag
of a usurping Congress, the South
had no regard for it, but when it be?
came ibo nag of a restored Union
and the symbol onco again of free?
dom, the people of tho South would
be ready to live or dio beneath its
ample folds. Tho Judge closed with
a graceful and truthful tribute to tho
noble women of tho South, who were
doing their duty in pence as they had
so nobly dono it iu tho lato war.
Such mothers, ho thought, could not
be tho mothers of a recreant race.
Col. J. P. Thomas was next intro?
duced. After some general remarks
and some allusion to thc prospects of
tho Democracy iu tho Stato and tho
Uuion, Col. Thomas stated, that he
proposed to 6how, by an appeal to
logic and facts, that all tho charges
against tho Democratic party, could
be made good against tho radical
party. Ho would arraign the radical
party before tho tribunal o' the peo?
ple. Ho then proceeded to establish
the following propositions: 1st. That
tho radical party was anti-Republican.
2d. That it was revolutionary and un?
constitutional. 3d. That it was the
only ])ro-slavery party in the country.
4th. That it was a disunion party.
5th. That it was opposed to peace.
6th. That it was a party of heavy tax?
ation, and 7th. That it was a party of
coii'uption. Col. T. then appealed to
the crowd to stand firmly by tho prin?
cipios of tho canvass. Let no mau
think of abandoning his Stato. Tho
sous of Carolina must gather around
tho old commonwealth tho moro
closely, if the clouds grow dark and
tempestuous. Sooner or later, wc
must succeed. Ho believed that in
November next a glorious success
was to reward our efforts. But, if in
the providence of God, Carolina was
to walk yet longer in tho valley ol
political humiliation, let us remain
true, said Col. T., to our principles
let us possess our souls in patience,
nud tho poltiical crown will soou bc
ours, to wear upon our chastened
After Cul. T. had concluded, din
uer was announced, and plnee3 al
the long tables assigucd to nil. Tin
supply was ample for tho large crowd
After dinner, the crowd again assem
bled, and addresses of an interesting
character were delivered by Col. Gm
ham and John P. Richardson, Esq
Lastly, Goode und Stowers spoke tc
the colored people.
After tea, tho crowd ussembled ii
the Court House, and addresses wen
made, in excellent style, by Gen. J
D. Konuedy and Harris Covington
Esq. This closed a gala day in Sum
ter. The crowd was estimated at be
tween 3,000 and 1,000, and the great
est enthusiasm prevailed. Long afte
mid-night, Muller's brass bund movei
through the town, discoursing fin
music and complimenting tho loee
and visiting Democratic speakers
Well done for Sumter. The spirit c
the revolutionary "game cock" sti!
lives and tho bird crows boldly au
defiuntly and shows un uudauute
Among the distinguished gcntU
u?en who participated in these exei
cises, were Hon. J. L. Manning, c
Clarendon, Mr. Spain, of Darlingtot
and Messrs. J. S. Richardson au

vent me from attending the gathering
of officers and soldiers at Indianapo?

on the 23d instant.
But beyond the great gratification
I should experience in meeting so
many of my old companions-in-arms,
and mingling our memories of tho
past with resolutions of future efforts
and sacrifices for the honor of the
land and fing wo love, my prescuco
there would accomplish more than a
simple statement of my views on
tho chief issues which now agitate the
I believe our free institutions and
highest material interests aro in grave
peril. I shal?, therefore, perform a
solemn and responsible duty to my
feiiow-soldiers and countrymcu, who
lovo this nation moro thau a party,
by stating what I think tho most
vital issues beforo tho public in tho
approaching Presidential election.
Abovo all other expenses-expen?
ditures, taxation, bonds, "green?
backs," or anything else-stands that

Restore them this, aud as certainly

stability will u? assured; our financial
prosperity will speedily follow; the
value of property in tho South will
increase; our public securities will go
to a premium; our greenbacks will
become par; coiu and currency ac?
counts, with all their evils and com?
plications, will disappear from the
books of our business men.
Believing with all my soul that tho
preservation of our Government from
despotic changes, aud all those inesti?
mable] blessings, depend upon this
restoration of tho Southern peoplo to
wholesome, cheerful self-government,
I am equally certain that it can bo
done, and dare pledge my honor and
lifo for them, that they will give and
observe all proper guarantees to re?
nounce secession, slavery and their
dependent issues; to protect, educate
and elevate Ibo freedmen to tho exer?
cise of all tho duties incumbent on
them as good citizens under the
Constitution and laws of the United
Aud what more, could bo asked of
them, or what greater results could
patriotism desiro for thc country, than
depend upon this issue?
Not even the prosecution of tho
war challenged a more thorough re?
nunciation of party preferences and
personal dislikes on the altar of our
country, than docs the attainment of
this great good.
Tho desolate and ruined South,
thc oppressed tax payors of the West
and North, generosity, mercy, love
of country, apprehensions of evils to
come, every motivo that ought to
move the hearts of truo and noble
men, appeal to us to say by our votes
wo will stop that hopeless folly of
attempting to govern the Southern
States by what we call "loyal blacks,"
and give tho people, under just
guarantees, the right peacefully and
legally to proceed to recognize their
own government within tho Union.
With such convictions, I hold tho
man who would not express and act
upon them, a traitor to himself and
his country, and dospiso tho partizan
who would fiud fault with any rea?
sonable steps ho might tako to bring
about so great a good to tho nation.
Recommending my convictions,
and the reason for them, to the judg?

the following reasons for his re?

short of an inexorable necessity could
havo induced me to leavo South
Carolina. But I found myself ut
fifty-five with every source of income
dried up, and no means of maintain?

A RADICAL TRICK.-A radical,
mimed Coon, (suspicious name, that,)
of Troy, N. Y., sends us a printed
circular, accompanied by a slip of
gummed paper, as a specimen of his
manufacture, and which he says "will
stick to greased ballots." He con?
"The importance of a reliable
gummed paper in the present cam?
paign has induced mo to offer it for
sale, having found from long expe?
rience as a member of the craft, that
a large portion of pasters do not

long enough to got them in the bal?
That is to say, that tho radicals up
that way resort to "gummed paper"
and "greased ballots" to perpetrate
election frauds; and are not ashamed
to advertise their rascality, provided
they can sell their "pasters" at $2
per quire. Perhaps such appliances
