LETTER FROM GOV. FERRY.
The following letter from Hon. B.
F. Perry, of this State, was read at
tho monster Democratic meeting in
New York, on Monday night lost:
GREENVILLE, S. C., October 1.
Douglas Taylor, Ssa., Chairman, ?tc.
DEAR Sm: I received, this evening,
your kind invitation to be with you
on the 5th instant, and address your
"grand mass meeting." Ith?nkyou
most sinoerely for tbis honor, and bo
assured that nothing could give me
greater pleasure than to be present
at ''the enthusiastic gathering af the
people whioh will then be convened
in Tammany Hall."
But, although it' is impossible for
me to be with you in person, my
heart and soul will unito with you in
all your efforts to elevate to the Pre?
sidency your distinguished states?
man, Horatio Seymour. I believe
that the salvation of the country and
tho existence of our republican form
of Government depend on his elec?
tion. If the radicals should carry
this olection, I have no idea that tho
American people will over have an
opportunity of electing a constitu?
tional President of these United
St at 03.
I am justified iu thia conclusion by
tho usurpations, oppressions, tyran?
ny and extravagance of tho radical
porty in Congress. Thoy have al?
ready, in utter disregard of tho Fede?
ral Constitution, stripped the Presi?
dent of his highest and most legiti?
mate prerogatives and conferred them
on tho Commanding General of the
army-their candidato for tho Presi?
dency. They have denied tho Pre?
sident tho power of selecting his own
Cabinet, or dismissing from office
those who havo proved recreant and
betrayed their trusts. They have en?
croached on the Judiciary Depart?
ment of tho Government, and refused
to lot the Supreme Court of the
United States decido on the consti?
tutionality of their legislation. They
have struck down, at ono blow, ten
sovereign States of this Union, and
hold them under military despotism.
They havo disfranchised the white
race in tho Southern States and en?
franchised tho negroes.
I feel assured that if the Northern
people could only'see, or .be made
Hcnsible of tho miserable condition
of their fellow-citizens and kinsmen
of the South, they would not sustain
a party in power who had brought
tais great calamity of negro supre?
macy On one-third of the republic
lu the Legislature of South Carolina
there are eighty negroes and only
forty white members in the House of
Representatives. Tho greater part
of these forty white legislators are
tho lowest and worst of mon, without
property, intelligence or character,
and were, elected by the negroes.
Their legislation has been wild, extra?
vagant and atrocious. Paying no
taxes themselves, and their constitu?
ency, by whom they were elected,
paying nothing into the State Trea
Hurv, they have made appropriations
and levied taxes whioh bankrupt the
But their legislation in othor re?
spects is still worse and more alarm?
ing. They have authorized the sus?
pension of tbat bulwark of Anglo
Saxon liberty, the writ of habeas cor
2ms, and havo authorized the raising
of a standing force of negro troops,
in violation of the Constitution of
thc United States, whioh forbids a
State keeping a' stending army. Un?
der those laws, this negro Govern?
ment will have the power of impri?
soning any citizen without warrant
or accusation as long aa they please,
whilst a negro force will be left to
insult and outrage his family, and
plunder and destroy L*?v property.
In tho meantime, the State will
be, as the whole South iiust be, ut?
terly impoverished and desolated.
Instead of being an advanfrtge to tho
North, as the Southern States for?
merly woro, they will bo an expense
-au incubus on their industry, euer
Sy, and enterprise. We are paying
ttl? Or nothing towards tho support
of the Federal Government, and wo
are unable Lo pay as long aa the ne?
gro role continues. We are without
capital to cultivate oar landa, and
capital will not come here for invest?
ment whilst thia negro government
CQutinuesJ 'There is ho security for
life or property. The newspapers
are filled with houses and barns
burnt, property stolen and persona
In time of peace we see all over
the South. Federal troops, kept up at
an enormous expense, to keep the
white race in subjugation to negro
government-i-a government which, if
continued, will moke the whole South
a Hayti or San Domingo. We have,
too, n Freedman's Bureau throughout
the Southern States, whose sole pur?
pose is to prejudice the freedmen
against their former masters, and
unite them to the radical party.
This Bureau is paid for by the North,
and costa the Government ten or fif?
teen millions annually. Why should
the white people of the Northern
States pay enormous and crushing
taxes to establish negro governments
over their own ruco throughout tho
South? Why bhould they keep up a
standing army, here, for the purpose
of maintaining those governments?
The only purpose which the radi?
cal party have in creating and con?
tinuing this unnatural despotism is to
perpetuate their own progress as a
party. In order to maintain their ill
gotten authority, and keep control of
the Government, they are willing to
make one-third of the Republic an
Ireland or a Poland. Peace there
never can be, at the South, while
negro supremacy is maintained here
by Federal bayonets. It is impossi?
ble that a brave, intelligent, and
patriotic people can willingly submit
to such degradation and tyranny. H
is not human nature to do so.
?s an old Union man, I can say,
with truth, that the Southern people
accepted in good faith tho results oi
the war, and would have been as loya
to the Federal Government as Nevi
York "or Massachusetts, if they hac
been restored to the Union under th<
Constitution. They abolished slave
ry, and were determined to givo theil
formor slaves equal protection witl
themselves in the enjoyment of al
their civil rights. When the freed
men showed themselves capable o:
exercising political rights, they wcr<
willing to confer them also. But a
present they know, and tho uegn
knows, that he is incapable of exer
cising prudently and wisoiy tho poli
tical rights of a citizen. Hence th
carpet-baggers, who have como her
from the North to tako chargo of th
negroes and assume tho governmen
of the country. Tho freedmen ar
now as milch political slaves to thos
carpet-baggers as they formerly wer
domestic slaves of their former OWL
Instead of meeting fairly tho issue
involved in this Presidentiul canvas!
and defending their usurpation
tyranny and piodigal cxtravagauci
tho radical party are trying to mal;
the election turn on the past issue
of the war. lu order to do this thc
appeal to the prejudices of the Nort
against the l-ebel.s of the South. A
tho same time they aro receiving int
full fellowship and hugging to the
bosom tho meanest and vilest (
thoso rebels who havo joined the
party. In a recent Act of this rad
cal Congress they removed tho disi
bilities of ten or fifteen hundre
"red-handed rebels," and declare
them worthy of holding office, bi
ca HBO they had joined the radio
party. Such men as Gov. Holdei
of North Carolina, and Gov. Browi
of Georgia, who were, at the bogil
niug of tho war, the fiercest aud ino,
uncompromising secessionists, hay
'>eeu made loyal citizens, whilst Go
Worth, of North Caroliua, Go
Jenkins, of Georgia, and niy.se]
who wero always Union men, are r
pudiated because we will not give oi
adhesion to tho radical party. I
who betrays his raco, his couutr
his principles, and his God, is wo

no longer "a red-handed rebel."
I am happy to inform you that tl
Deinocrucy of the South, tho o
Union men, and all the secessionis
of principle and honor, Rep?blica:
by birth and education, and lovers
tho Federal Constitution, aro up at

LETTER FROM GENERAL M'CIJHIIIIAN
It having been by some expect
that Gen. McClellan would prosit
the following letter, in explanati
of his absence, was read :
NEW YORK, October 5, 1868.
To Douglas Taylor, Esq., Chairmi
Mr DEAR SIR: I havo tho ploost
to acknowledge the r?coipi of your
invitation to preside over the Demo?
cratic meeting on Monday next.
I have long since determined to
abstain from farther participation in
political lifo, and therefore find myself
compelled to decline the honor you
prone* me. I should, however, be
glad to attend the meeting as a pri?
vate citizen, did not engagements of
a domestic nature, rendered impera?
tive by my long absence from tho
country, detain me from the city
upon the day in question. I gladly
avail myself of this opportunity to
express my continued hearty sympa?
thy with tho Democratic cause, anrl
in y ardent wishes for the success of
those constitutional principles for
which the recent war was undertaken
by the North. Separated as I thus
am from the distinguished soldier
who has been chosen as the leader of
our opponents, I know that you will
agree with me in the highest respeot
for the services ho has rendered our
country; but it is my conviction that
the measures of tho party which has
placed him in nomination are but
continuations of strife, and can never
restore peace or constitutional supre?
macy, and thus complete the work
which ho and other bravo soldiers so
ably commenced. The war was only
tho first epoch in the history of the
struggle in which we have been so
long engaged. Tho work of the sol?
diers, is, I trust, forever ended, and it
remains for tho people to fulfill tho
great objects for which they or their
sons and brothers were called to tho
field. A restored Union of States
and hearts, an invigorated Constitu?
tion to be firmly and faithfully sup?
ported, the maintenance of the na?
tional credit inviolate, a re-establish?
ment of national and Stato rights in
all their integrity, and thus true har?
mony and a lasting peace.
These aro the objects for which
every citizen should now strive, and
bolieviug these to rest in the success
of the Democratic cause by the elec?
tion of the eminent statesman select?
ed to represent that party, it is my
intention to sustain that cause as a
With the reqnuest that you will
convey to the gentlemen of the com?
mittee, and my other friends for
whom you act, my sincere thanks for
tho compliment they have paid me,
I am most truly, yours,
GEORGE B. MCCLELLAN.
Address of Hon. J. tl. Adams.
MY FELLOW-CITIZENS OF SOUTH
CAROLINA: I have come to speak to
you hero to-day, from my distant
home in Massachusetts, at tho earn?
est request of your State Central
Executive Committee, to consult with
yon upon thc living principles of our
free institutions, and in tho hope that
our meeting may in some degree,
however small, tend to promote a
better understanding, a kinder feel?
ing and ultimate harmony between
the mass of white people hero and a
very largo portion of tho people of
tho North, and especially of my own
State. And I am here, also, to learn
from your own lips, your wishes and
intentions upon questions of public
policy whioh most nearly affect you.
Yon, also, have perhaps been told,
that I ara a grand-son of one of the
earliest opponents of your peculiar
institution, and I will tell you that 1
was an ardent, though humble sup?
porter of Mr. Lincoln, a hearty friend
of his administration; always in
favor of an onergotie prosecution of
tho war while it lasted, and that I
hailed with profound gratitude the
abolition of slavery. I had long re?
garded it aa a most dangerous ele?
ment in our Federal polity, and cer?
tain, at some timo or other, to jeo?
pardize tho existence of tho Union
and the authority of tho Constitu?
tion. Soouer or later, tho coulliet
botween tho two systems of labor,
tho free labor of tho North abd tho
slave labor of tho South, was ?uro to
come. It did come and has passed
away, with terrible suffering and con?
vulsion, and now tho South, cast
down, bleeding, faint, and almost
despairing, looks vainly for the sign
of promise in her dark horizon. You
usk each other, in vain, what nindi we
do? where can we go? whence com?
eth our salvation? I will tell you,
frankly, my friends, at the outset,
that I believo that your redemption
must bo by your own aot; that your
fate is in your own hands, at last. I
do not mean to deny that yonr con?
dition, from time to timo, may bo
favorably or injuriously influenced
by tho fluctuations of tho political
fight at the North, but I suspect that
your permanent welfare will mainly
depend upon the power you may de?
velop now to grasp firmly and em?
brace sincerely the fondamental prin?
cipio of our Govornment, as settlod
by the war-a constitutional Demo
oraoy. That principle seems to me a
recognition of the equal rights of all
men under - the law, or, stated as
broadly as possible, the right of every
man to think, speak and act as he
wishes, provided he does, not, by so
doing, in fringe,the equal rights of his
neighbor. I do not regard political
privileges as rights in this sense, at
all. The general welfare of tho com?
munity must regulate their distribu?
This is all vory well, you will say;
but it offers no prosent and practical
solution of oar difficulties. It is very
m nob like telling a niau who is suffer?
ing terribly from intemperance, that
his only permanent euro munt como
from an adherence to the lawn of
health. And I agree to that viet? of
it. Wo are Buffering now terribly,
both North and South, from political
intemperance. You wero guilty, of it
when you did all in your pcrrr to
rupture the Union by for \ because
you would not trust the question of
slavery tc tho people under the Con?
stitution; and we aro guilty of it now
when we will not restore the Union
nuder the Constitution, because we
distrust the people. What is needed,
in the first place, is moderation,
calmness and a habit of patience in
politic*". We ?rc inclined to be im?
pulsive, headlong, desperate in our
devices. Waiting and watching,
relying upon slow but sure processes,
has never been very popular with
any people of our race, urn! is pecu?
liarly distasteful to us. But, my
fellow-citizens, this disagreeable dis?
cipline is, in my judgment, precisely
the training we are, all of us, most
in need of, and I think it esscntiul to
your happy delivoran se. Let us come
down to the actual facts of your case,
and try to look at them together,
calmly, dispassionately and without
prejudice. It is always foolish to
deceive ourselves, and in your case,
to mislead you knowingly, would bo
a crime. I shall, therefore, spoak
with perfect frankness and plainuess.
Yon began tho war down hore at
Sumter, under o claim of right to
defend yourselves as an independent
State, which had exercised n reserved
right to seoede from tho Union; and
I take it that no ono denies that tho
cause of that action was the appre?
hended danger to slavery, from the
result of the election of 1860. You
fought for your side of the contro?
versy for four years, with a desperate
determination and courage, until at
last you were compelled by the fate
of battle to surrender. Yon had
allied yourselves with other seceded
States and formed a Confederacy,
which claimed an equal rank among
the nations. Yon proclaimed slavery
its corner-stone. In the stress of
conflict, as a wur measure, justified
by the emergency, and as a means of
distressing you, your slaves were
proclaimed free. Tho North insisted
that no State could secede under the
Constitution, and that the whole
proceeding, on tho part of the State,
was an insurrection of a portion of
tho people of the seceding States. It
is far from my intention to revive
old controversies, or re-open settled
disputes. But I must state the facts,
to bring us to our present position.
You claimed to bo a sovereign
State, and on your own showing
were, by tho laws of war, subject tu
any terms the victor might impose.
It did not lio in your mouths, there?
fore, to domand" any rights in thc
Union yon had broken, or any im?
munity from the consequences ol
your own acts under the Constitution
you had renounced. If wc wero tc
accept your own theory of action,
you were alien enemies and youl
lund conquered territory, and so sub
ject to the naked laws of war alone
But the North had always denice
every ono of 3*our positions; had in?
sisted that you were never out of tbl
Union; that your resolutions of se
cession were simply void; that yoi
could not cease to bo citizens of tin
United States by any such process
and that, of course, you were liable
when taken, to the pains aud penal
ties of perjury. To bo sure, thi
theory waa necessarily infringed i
little in praotice, as in respect to tin
exchange of prisoners and the ob
servance of the same laws of warfar
that obtain between iudepeudon
States. Still, this was tho accepte?
faith. The war was to subdue an in
surrection, not to conquer a nation
You wore defeated rebels, not van
quished alien enemies, and the Unioi
was re-established, not extended ove
your territory. It was upon thi
theory that tho Governmeut of th
United States proceeded at first t
renew what wore called the practice,
rotations of tho States to tho Union
and you gladly accepted this viow c
tho case, and did all in your powe
to resumo your vacant place.
Now it has always seemed to m
that you, by your acts, at that time
gave all tho pi oof in your power thu
yon abandoned the principio fe
which you fought, accepted tho dc
cisi?n of your wngor of battle, au
bowed to the supremacy of the Coi
stitution. You wero offered and yo
ratified an amendment to that iustri
mont absolutely and forever abolis!
ing slavery. You manifested, so fi
as I have ever been ablo to see, a di
position to take us on our own tera
and ronounce all you had fought io:
and pay in full the stake for wilie
you had played and lost. To bo sui
you had no choico, and you could nc
then have complained if you ha
boen treated for what you claimed t
be, alien enemies; but you might ha\
been sullen and refused to do an;
thing. You did tho beBt you coul
do, as I have always thought; and
think the North would havo done tl:
very best that she could have done, I
have taken yon back in the fine ten
fier in which Gen. Grant reported li
ound you at that time. I do ni
know; your people hore may bo di
ferent from any poople I have evi
seen, or known, or read of; but
think it would have boen best to hai
thou taken you cordially by tho ham
told you that we believed your pr
mino?, aocepted your word or bono
and that by-gone* should bo b;
Besides, I think wo were in good,
faith bound, after youhad acceded to
oar own terms, and noted apon them,
when offered by an authority whioh
yen believed, and I still believe, was
adequate to not bindingly in the pre?
mises-to complete the transaction.
Much as yon were interested in our
doing so, I think tho North was oven
more so. I think it would have re?
stored the Union with the least shock
to its frame-work, and with the least
possible strain to tho Constitution.
Congress, however, interfered; toro
asunder^onco more tho knitting frac?
ture, because they averred the euro
would never be fair and sound by
that process, and adopted another.
Their first attempt was tho fourteenth
amendment, whioh they offered yon
as a dose preparatory to re-adjust?
ment; but it was not stated to be
final, and there is much controversy
at the North as to your reasons for
rejecting it. If it was the suffrage
clause which checked your action, I
think, locking at it from your posi?
tion, you were wrong. If you could
not swallow tho clause requiring you
to disqualify your leaders, my heart
tells me you were right. I hope I
shall never lisp one word of reproach
against any mau who refused to go
back from his chosen foremost men
at such a time. But, at any rate, its
submission to you at all showed that
thus far Congress stuck to tho North?
ern theory of the contest. But next
came an entire chango of base and
Congress abandoned tho Northern
view of matters entirely, nnd thus late
in the day came over to the camp you
bad been beaton out of, as the more
tenable position of the two. Tbej
took up your old ground and insisted
that you were, after all, alien ene
mies; your country conquered terri
tory; yourselves prisoners of wai
and your rights ot every kind for?
feited. This is", at bottom, the mean
ing of tho Reconstruction Acts undei
which you now live. They are basel
on conquest, and the right of tin
victor in international warfare. I d(
not think that this was, upon a com
prehensive view of the general an(
permanent welfare of the whole peo
plo, a generous, a wise, or a cousti
tutionnl coarse to take. But it hm
been taken, and nov/ we come to tin
difficulties of our position. As thing
do, in fact, stand, what is it best fo
us to do? How caa we best modif;
or remedy existing evils? Tho cas<
would be puzzling enough, at best
but the addition of tho elemeut o
universal negro suffrage, perplexes i
ten-fold. Thea, it is complicated b;
a multitude of conflicting theories
prejudices and passions here, as wei
as at the North, and the circum
stances of peculiar political excite
meat attending a Presidential elec
tion, in which this very question c
your proper status is tho vital issue
render it well nigh impossible to ai
rive at satisfactory conclusions.
The best consideration, however
which I have been able to give to th
subject, has led mo to somo conch
sions which I offer with great difl]
dence, but in entire good faith,
proposo to try to escape from our di
Acuities by reversing the proc?s
that brought us into them. Whe
you appealed to arms to decide
disputed question of constitution!
construction and set the fate of slav?
ry upon the ordeal of battle, yo
took, as it seems to mo, the first irr<
vocable false step. You refused t
abide by tho tribunal provided b
the Constitution, and you would n<
accept the verdict of the people rei
dered under the constitutional ford
when adverse to you. The barrie:
which had been provided for ju
such an omergency, you, in heat an
impatience, threw down. No writte
Constitution can possibly be mae
strong enough, in itself, to restrai
tho people, unless they themselv
aro calm and wise enough to se
even in their hottest moments, cv<
when the temptation to grasp a e<
veted object, or secure a threatnne
oud, is most overwhelming, that
the long ruu and upon a balanco
contingencies, they will be happi
by observing scrupulously their sc
imposed limits. They may havo
lose or defer a cherished hope th
they rnaynot, by-aud-by, bo oblige
to suffer a dreaded ill. But the pt
sions which the slavery agitatii
eauscd, were too fierce for argumoi
too impatient for tho tedious pr
cesses of law.
CONCLUDED IN OUR NEXT.
The Abbeville Press says: All t
circumstances oonnected with t
murder of the white man Con
and negro, which we announced
our last issue as having been comm

for Raleigh, yesterday afternoon.
The Smart Children-who are par?
ticularly smart-give an entertain?
ment this evening, in Gregg's Hall.
It will, doubtless, prove a pleasing
affair, to all who feel interested in
the little rues.
An RESTED.-A white boy named
Parker and a colored boy named
John, were arrested, on Sunday, in
Lexington, charged with the robbery
of Mr. Bonlware, on Thursday last,
in Ridgeway, Fairfield District. A
portion of the money was recovered.
The youthful robbers aro in charge
of Chief Radcliffe.
LOWANDE'S CIRCUS.-This troupe
performed yesterday afternoon and
again last night, but to meagre audi?
ences, owing to the very inclement
weather. Those who were present
expressed themselves highly gratified.
Lowando is certainly one of tho best
bare-back riders who has visited this
quarter of the globe. Miss Clarinda
reverses tho usual order of things,
and balances a man on her head,
shoulders, etc. The Georgia. clown
is very witty, and the trick pony hard
to beat. There are many 'ether . at?
tractions, and those wishing to know
further, should go and Bee for them
THE SPEAKING LAST NIGHT-ADAMS
AND HAMPTON.-As announced in
Sunday's Phoenix, the Hon. J. Q.
Adams addressed the citizens of Co?
lumbia last night, in Carolina Hall.
His remarks were w?ll received, and
the orator was frequently applauded.
We expected to publish Mr. Adams'
speech in full, this morning, but
owing to unforeseen circumstances,
we have been compelled to defer the
greater portion of it until to-morrow.
Gen. Hampton followed, in a.short
address, and, of course, wrought his
hearers up to the highest pitch of
HIGHWAY RORREBY AND ATTEMPTED
MURDER.-On Thursday night last,
as Mr. Joseph Keller was on his way
from Columbia to his home in Fair?
field District, and when near Little
River, he stopped for tho night.
While he and his driver (a colored
boy) wero asleep, a party of negroes
mado an attack on them, knocked
Mr. Keller senseless and severely in?
jured the driver, who succeeded,
however, in making bis escape. Mr.
Keller was robbed of his pocket?
book, containing nearly $200, and
his overcoat. The owner of the team
and the driver were Democrats/ and
it is not known whether the intention
was for robbery or meroly political
antagonism. The wagon and team
were not disturbed. At last accounts,
the wounded men were improving. '
NUTMEGS.-Nutmegs are the fruit
of a beautiful tree whioh grows in
the Molucca Islands, and in thc
other parts of the East. All the
parts of tho tree aro aromatic, but
only those portions of tho fruit called
mace and nutmeg oro marketable.
The entire fruit is of an oval form,
about the size of a peach. Tho nut?
meg is the innermost kernel. It is
surrounded by a skin, which, peeled
off, constitutes the mace of com?
merce. Tho tree yields annually
three crops. ^_
