"Once More to the Breach, Dear
Friends, Once More."
The news from the North is en?
couraging. The grand army of the
Democracy keeps the field, fills up
its columns, re-adjusts its lines,
stands eager for the fray, and calmly
prepares for tho nest assault upon the
enemy's lines. Our great leader has
taken his placo at the head, and
already his manly and truthful and
inspiriting utterances have gone forth.
Often have we found the tido of bat?
tle tamed by tho prompt movement
and immediate presence of the com?
mander-in-chief. So, now, in the
supreme hour of the canvass upon
which the destiny of tho Republic
hangs, Seymour goes into tho field;
and why may he not turn tho tide?
Why may we not indulge the confi?
dent expectation that his luminous
addresses will have the effect of
bringing over to the Democracy a
sufficient number of conservative
Republicans to chango the result of
the recent elections, at least in Penn?
sylvania and Indiana? Gov. Sey?
mour will bring out before the North
the real issues of the canvass and the
outrages and the enormities of tho
radical party. His rhetorio is at?
tractive, his logic is irresistible, his
oratorical powers are unequalled in
the country. He wields the weapon
of truth-he waves the wand of elo?
Let us in the Soi th not give up.
Our friends in the North stand firm,
hopeful, resolute. Let us work on.
Away with your weak-kneod Demo?
crats. Away with your fence-strad
dlers. Let - every true Democrat
stand fast by his colors. Be hope?
ful. Have faith. See no signs in
the skies but those that portend vic?
tory. When it rains, say that nature
weeps for the crimes, the follies, tho
errors and the extravagancies of
radicalism. When the sun bursts
forth in all his brilliancy, lighting
up Heaven and earth, say that it is
the sun of Austerlitz for us and our
Oh, that we could infuse into tho
soul of every Democratic man tho
enthusiasm, the faith, the hope, tho
energy and the resolution that fill
our own breast. Then would every
member of the party rush to the
standards of the Democracy, bear
them up and on, and make thain float
In the recent elections, the forces
of tho Demooracy mot with a re?
pulse, not a defeat. We repeat tho
henning of this article: "Once moro

In China, the nowspupers freely

Gov. Scott's li&t? "-'
Tho position of Gov. Scott in South
Carolina is a peculiar one, n delicate
one, and wo suppose ho feels it to be
such. In tho opinion of a large and
intelligent and influential portion of
the inhabitants of this State, ho is
tho Governor de jure only. Ho cer?
tainly ? justly regarded ns having
been foisted upon tho State-a few
whites only having voted for bira.
No donbt be was .regarded less ob?
jectionable than any resident or na?
tive member of tho radical party, yet
he Cannot be said to be an Executive
elected by the voice of an untram?
meled people. Under theso circum?
stances, it became Gov. Scott to act
with nnusual circumspection. Not
possessing tho confidence of tho
whites, it would have been wiso in
bim, by impartial condtiot, at least,
to havo deserved their confidence.
Under any circumstances, "confi?
dence is a plant of slow growth."
Under existing circumstances, Gov.
Scott ought to have expected to find
it of peculiarly slow growth. Now,
what has been his course in the main?
Wo desire to do no injustice to Gov,
Scott, but wc havo reason to affirm
that he has exercised his high office
in the interests of the radical party.
We have seen tho evidences of this
on moro than cue occasion. Wo have
reference now to his recent proclama?
tion, which hus brought forth such
rebukes from Newberry, Anderson
and Union, and other Districts stig?
matized by the Governor, in a paper
bearing tho great seal of tho State.
That proclamation seeks to fix upon
tho Democratic party certain acts of
viol mco recently committed, whilst
counter outrages ar<rnot enumerated.
That proclamation does not do good
in this State, is full of prejudice, par?
tisanship and mis-statements, and
looks not to peace. But if it bo not
a good State paper for South Caro?
lina, it is a good campaign document
for tho canvass, in tho interest of tho
radical party. Saying this, wo have
said enough. Thc proclamation will
do to go along with Hogo's account
of his exodus from tho up-country.
The Governor writes Uko a partisan,
and the valiant Hogo flies like the
wicked, when no man pursueth.
THE CONGRESSIONAL RESULT.-The
olection returns indicate that tho De?
mocracy have gained one member ol
Congress in Indiana, five in Ohio,
and two, perhaps three, in Pennsyl?
vania. In the language of tho Nash?
ville American, this is a gratifying
result, and gives encouragement tc
hope that tho remaining States tc
vote this fall will give such additiona
gains as will reduce tho radical majo
rity in the Houso of Representative!
below tho two-thirds point. Thi:
will bo a valuable result. It will pre

We know that tho odds against us in

that wo have to meet tho misrepre?

colored man, was on his return from
a funeral, and when passing through
Anson street fell down and expired.
The Coroner was notified, and forth?

Address ot Ibo Cent roi Democratic
Club to tb? Democratic Party of I
FKDiiOW-CmzENs: Tho olection for
President and Vice-President o? tho
United States is now close at hand.
The great principles involved in the
contest; the magnitude of tho inter?
ests at stake, and the influence which
tim State may have on the result,
make this a proper occasion to lay
before yon a brief address.
The tendency and purpose of the
radical party, as manifested in words
and acts, are tho absorption of the
liberty of tho individual; tho de?
struction of States; the subversion of
tho Constitution, aud the erection
upon tho ruins of individual and
publie liberty, a grand, grinding,
consolidated despotism. Already it
has made rapid strides in that direc?
tion. Little, now, is left for it to do
but to fuse into ono mass, and then
erystnlizo into permanent form its
various acquisitions of usurped
power. Its capricious acts; its
wanton cruelties; its corrupt prac?
tices; its enormous burdens you bave
felt and do know. Against these,
and more than these, you ore now
called upon to continue a resolute
fight with the peaceful, though
potent, weapon of the ballot. Tile
Democratic party here and every?
where ure striking with 3-011 for the
principles of liberty, and the form?
of Government to which we have
been accustomed, for a written Con?
stitution, a Federal Union and 11
distinct existence of the States.
Surely, then, the principios of thc
contest aro important, and the inter?
est gro t. Arouse, therefore, to thc
magnitude of the emergency, and
spare no efforts for success. When
the time for registration shall come,
let no mau fail 'o appear, and nom
fail to vote. Let each one re'membei
that his individual voto may decid?
the election in his own District, and
that tho electoral vote of the Statt

sometimes controlled by local isses
and it lni9 often happeued that them
go ono way, and in a few weeks there
after, in tho same place, the Presi
dontial elections another. This run;
be the case in tho present canvass
and, indeed, we have reason to hopi
so. Recently we have received re
ports from ali parts of tho State
which induce tho belief that Soutl
Carolina, with proper effort, will b
carried for Seymour aud Blair. Le
not tho failure to do so bo ascribei
The canvass in which you aro uo\
engaged, is full of excitement, whicl
will probably continuennd increase t
tho end. We trust, therefore, that i
will not bo amiss to drop you a won
of cautiou. The criminality of a fev>
and perhaps the indiscretion of man]
have placed it in the power of malic
and misrepresentation to injure u?
and seriously to damage the comino
cause. We urge you, therefore, nc
only to preveut violence, but to al
stain from the appearance of it. W
are dealiup: with a false and snbtl
foe-prolific in inventions and vemoi
ons in purpose-a foe who fully nude
stands the temporary profit of

buckle on her armor.
Wo need not urge upon yon tl
policy and the duty of treating, wi!
great kindness and forbearance, tl
colored population of the Stat
This you have ever done, and wi
continuo to do, as long ns you a
permitted. Wo have no doubt ye
will make manifest the untruth of tl
malicious charge, that by force y<
have compellod their votes or by i
timidation kept them from tho poll
Their minds are rapidly opening
tho truth that the vagrant white mi
from the North, as well as tho rou
gado of tho South, who live by d
coiving and plundering thom, at
who have been driving them to d
struction, are not truo friends, ai
are unworthy of confidence and su
port. With a fair opportunity th
will return to yon, as their estrang
ment is owing entirely to tho fal
teachings aud maliguant efforts of t
Northern emissary. It cannot
forgotten that the State voluntan!
iu LS?5, invested tho colored popu
tion with every civil right; and tl
the Democratic party, in Conveuti
in April last, recognized them, une
the previous action of tho State,
an integral element in tho body pt
tic-and expressed its williugne
when in power, to enfranchise thc
to tho extent which the public w<
and their own good might warral
Tho position thou taken by tho Cc
volition, and which was announced
the people of tho State and tho coi
try, is now re-nflirmed.
We beg you to remember that I
Democratio party of the State v
not organized for tho purpose mer
of supporting the nominees of I
party, but for higher purposos n
moro enduring ends. It is possi
that our present loaders may bo 1
featod, but our principles will s
vive. The liberty of tho individi;
tho hoing and welfare of States, 1
Constitution of thu United Stn
I and a Federal Union under it,
objects worthy of patience and
during' efforts. In tho success we
hope for, our organization will be
most useful; and, in case of defeat,
it will become essential. Wo, there?
fore, desire to impress upon you tho
necessity of preserving intact, and in
full energy the admirable organiza?
tions of tho D?mocratie party of

To tile People or South Carol lita.
FELLOW-CITIZENS: As members of
your State Executive Committee-a
body which represents nearly every
white citizen of South Carolina-wc
feel it our duty to invoke your ear?
nest efforts in tho cause of peace and
thc preservation of order. We beg
3'on to unite with us in reprobating
these recent, acts of violence, result?
ing in the death of Martin, Randolph
and Nance, by which a few lawless
and reckless men have brought dis?
credit on the character of our people,
though provocation in these cases may
have been given. No cause can pros?
per which calls murder to its assist?
ance, or which looks io assassination
for success. "The idea of assassina?
tion," said George McDnffie, "is so
absolutely abhorrent to all tho feel?
ings, tho Christian feelings of modern
times, and of such pernicious ten?
dency, that I feel it to be my duty
thus unequivocally to express my
utter abhorrence of any proceeding
that may have the remotest ieudency
to suggest it. Such a course is not
j only obnoxious to tho abhorrence of
every honorable man, from its moral
atrocity, but from its political ten?
Listen to the words of that patriot,
which seem to come from his grave,
to warn the people whom ho loved so
devotedly. We can add nothing to
thc weight of this great authority.
We can only appeal to you, to sup?
port the laws, to preservo the peace
und to denounce those crimes which
have so recently been committed in
some portions of our State. We
speak in behalf of the conservative
and law-abiding portion of the peo?
ple, who constitute, we feel assured,
nearly our entire white population,
and in their name we express em?
phatically our abhorrence of such
acts; and we pledge ourselves to give
all the assistance in our power to
suppress them. We adjure all who
I lovo their State, of all classes, white
and black, to bo peaceable and quiet,
to lend their efforts to promoto har?
mony and to quell dissension. We
ask those who aro opposed to us,
politically, to unite with us to check
and discountenance all incendiary
language, whether uttered in public
or private, and to join us in tho
efforts we are making for the pre?
servation of peace, thc supremacy of
law and tho maintenance of order.
Lawlessness will endaugor the peace
of tho whole State, and will surely
bring disaster to ail classes. Lot us
all then, however we may differ in
politics, devote all our energies to
maintain tho good character of our
State, and to promoto a better feeling
among our whole people.

AFFAIRS IN JAPAN.-Matters in
Japan are in such au uucetain condi?
tion, in consequence of the civil war
now pending, that full consideration
cannot bo given to some events
touching tho interests of thc Western
world until it shall bo possible to
judge with hopo of accuracy which
party is likely to succeed. At the
latest advices, it seemed that tho
contest still continued. Tho North?
ern, or Shiogoon's party were gene?
rally represented to bo victorious,
but tho position of tho Mikado had
not been materially changed. He
still hold his court, protected by his
troops, and assumed to bc possessed
of universal power. His most recent
act has been to decree that tho name
of Jeddo shall bo changed to Tonkoi,
or tho Eastern Capital, and to decrco
that it shall bo open to foreigners on
and after October 1. This fact shows
that the Mikado understands tho ne?
cessity of propitiating thc foreign
powors, and is a guarantee that what?
ever may happen, tho commercial in?
terests of tho world will not material?
ly suffer. Tho Tycoon is pledged to
a like policy, and however tho in?
ternal dissensions in Japau may bc
settled, thero is little probability that
tho privileges of foreigners will bo
disturbod. The points involved in
tho war ia Japan nro botter under?
stood now than they were when it
broke out. It is partially a personal
contest, influenced by ambition
among the great princes; but thero
aro also involved in it tho principios
of progress and liberal advancement
as regards tho homo policy.

tigers, bears, camel, elephant, mon?
keys, birds, etc. The performance in
the ring is unexampled-a female
bai-'i-back rider; a youthful bare-back
rider; four-horse bare-back riding;
reindeer ridiug; leaping through bal-.
loons; balancing a barrel and beam;
double somersaults and indescribable
feats innumerable. To be brief
many things never before seen in this
latitude, and many old things so
daintily touched up as to be scarcely
recoguizable. The old mau is enti?
tled to the unanimous commendation
of tho littlo folks and tho circus
going portion of tho community in

MR. EDITOR: Several of your cor?
respondents, very old and respectable,
no doubt, seem to bo wonderfully
exorcised ns to tho origin of our
PLANTATION BITTERS. SO long os
these Bitters are all that we ropresont
them to bo, wo do not know that it
makes any difference from whom
they come, or from whenco they
originated; but, for the infonnatiou
of tho public generally, and old Cap?
tain Tl entz in particular, we will say
that ho told tho truth, and that these
Bitters originated in tho Wost India
Islands-that many of the ingredients
havo been favorably used for over a
century-but our combination of
Calisaya is ontirely now, and our
own. Thc ram and other rantoriai.->
are tho same, aud, ns your corres?
