COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Horning June 20, 1888.
The trial ot Richardson and Groy,,
members of tho Legislature, (both ne?
groes,) for the murder Of Dallas Smith,
bas been concluded, mid their prompt
acquittal by a jury of twelve negroes
been declared, The facta of this murder
have bean sifted au two occasions;, tho.
tyrst of which ut last term of court prov?
ing a mis-trial, i We do not propose in
this second- trial to consider tho testi?
mony, its weight or directness, its nature
or conclusiveness, the guilt br innocence
of the accused. As a public record in its
entire bearing, it is open to the scrutiny of
all; but it lies in our province to com?
ment upon the oharacter and qualifica?
tions of these twelve negroes in their
capacity as jurors; to estimate and do
termino upon the grave issue of life and
death. "Coming events cast their
shadows before them, " and the empan?
eling of twelve negroes-the foreman
selected probably in deference to his
superior intelligence-whom we know to
bc ignorant and illiterate, was amply suf?
ficient to d?termine, in onr opinion,-the
manner in which the verdict would fall. It
was so complete an axiom, so clear a de?
duction, that ire hazard the assertion that
all believed the verdict to be a foregone
conclusion. In this trial, such questions
of evidence, such contradictions of loca?
tion and position of witnesses, suoh com?
plicated technicalities arose, that we deem
it a fair inference that their determina?
tion-one requiring nice discrimination
and well-balanced judgment-was immea?
surably beyond the intelligence and com?
prehensions of this choseu twelve. Their
gross incompetency, the blind allegiance
of the negro to his raoo and oolor, and
the claims of party, were so many land?
marks to show what result would inevi
. tably fellow.
Whether Richardson was guilty or not,
we hold that the negro jory who decided
the issue was utterly and thoroughly un
fit to pronounce in judgment. We do
not touch the conduct of the case, the
management of the . attorneys or the
charge of the Judge; wo simply assert
and maintain that in such a grave and
solemn issue, involving intricate details
of law and evidence, calling forth the
most delicate exercise of nice and accu?
rate judgment; with the sign-posts of
the previous trial before them, that the
provision of a negro jury to re-try this
case, pointed clearly to the nature of the
verdict. In.any event, tho empanneling
of such a jury was disastrous to the
cause of justice, and the truthful inves?
tigation of a great crime. Tho appoint?
ment of this jury, might have been legal
-i. e., might have been in accordance
with some supposed hue recently enacted
by some3supposed authority in South
Carolina.' , But a law that leads to such
results is simply a monstrosity, and the
authority which called it into being a
patent enormity against all good govern?
ment, the peace of society, the integrity
of the great principles of the law, and a
flagrant outrage upou tho people of South
Carolina, Tho trial itself, as soou as the
jury was selected, (according to the law,
?as we are assured,) Was regarded .as a
sham, and some, at least, of the counsel
engaged, abandoned the grave issue tc
its certain fate-ct verdict of "not Quilty."
Csu it be possible that in the 19th cen?
tury, aud in an enlightened country,
nothing cnu bo done to roll back the
black race, with its auxiliaries, composed
of Northern adventurers and Southern
renegades, from overwhelming right,
justice, law, and the very life and boiug
of our Stato and people?
A VARIED SPECTACLE.-While thc
Yankees aro congregated in Bostou bj
the thousands to Bing of "peace," th?
Government is putting three State:
under martial law, and doing what il
can to Africanize the rest. The day foi
that "jubilee" has evidently not yet ar
rived. The Savannah Republican advisei
the hub-ites to take cure of tho "Coli
senm" for some ten years to como, anc
the blows upon the "anvils" may bi
lighter than those upon the people.
THE SOUTH CAROLINA TREASURE.-I
appears from tho statement of au cx-offi
cer of the 20th corps, published in i
Western paper, that the collocted trou
sure, jewelry, ko., recently examined anc
invoiced at the Treasury Department
and which attracted a good deal of no tic
at the time, was formerly the propert;
of citizens of Camdon, South Carolina
and that the gold and silver, as woll a
the principal portion of the Confederate
notes and bonds, belouged to the oh
Camden Bank, and was captured durinj
the war. The whole lot, it is thought
would not bring $5,000.

.-?There was- ?. tine when the United.
States did uo^ p.osauss the sympathies of
any despotic powter on the face* ofjVthe
globe, and did not pavo to possess them.
There was a time, when her very name
vas distasteful to ?neb .govern men ts, and
her mero existence was regarded as u
threat. But then her people were free,
and there was not within her borders ono
man dissatisfied with the form of govern?
ment. We had no "rebellion" to crush
out, no subject provinces to grind dowu
to the earth. We had no Poland or Ire?
land of our own; no penal colony for
political offenders; no tyrants, conse?
quently, no assassins. There was no
point of resemblance between us and
Russia; our principles and our paths
were different; our symbol of govern?
ment was tho ballot-box, hers the kuont;
her method of extension was by subju?
gation, ours by annexation. Now, we
are not so far apart; we have narrowed
the distance considerably, and a neigh?
borly feeling has sprung up between ns,
as was natural. She sympathized with
us in our efforts to destroy republican?
ism, by striking ot its corner-stone, the
consent of the governed. She admired
our precocious maturity in oppression,
the ease with which we took up h Gr role,
and the masterly manner in which we
played it; Her sympathies were with us.
Why not? She decided controversies by
the sword: so did we. "There's sympa?
thy." She ruled the conquered with a
rod of iron: so did we. "More sympa?
thy." She established "order" in Po?
land: we "reconstruction" in tho South.
Could there be better grounds for sym?
pathy? Of course, she sympathizod with
us, We were making imperialism 'pos?
sible, we were breaking ground for it on
every battle-field, from Bull Run to Ap?
Of course, Russia is gratified at the
election of General Grant, for the pre?
ponderance of the military element is
ever dangerous to liberty and republi?
canism. Neither can exist under the
shadow or the shelter of the bayonet.
And at the present momeut tho bayonet
is supreme in this "laud of light and
law," as Whittier calls it, for teu States
aTe wholly ruled by it, aud law is silent.
Whoever would see the apothegsis of
force has but to look Southward, and he
will behold it perfect in every detail.
Well mny our ally, the Czar, be grati?
fied ! Well may every lover of despot?
ism in the old world o"r the new chuckle
at the spectacle we present! Treason tc
the country openly preached under the
name of imperialism f And the prinoipa]
organ of the party that made such o
thing possible can soo no remedy for the
disease, no way of averting thc evil, but
by assassination. Certainly, if a Caesar,
why. then a Brutus, too. Bot why 8
Brutus? Our list of worthies require*
uo Brutus to moho it perfect, and thc
revolutionary fathers left no opening foi
a Brutus, for they left no opportunity
for a Ctesar. That's the only safe plan
that's the plan wo advocate; that's thc
plan the Democracy of this country wil
see carried out, though iu the prosecu
tion of it they do not expect the **sym
pathies" of Russia, or any other despot

While the revolutionary volunteers ii

Colonel Ames appears with his "New

lumbia, on Monday, June 28. "A series
of pre-emineutly beautiful entertain?
ments," executed by a score of ravishly
lovely ladies, are some of the enticing fea?
tures of the Colonel's programme. "A
legion of male artists, distinguished for
daring and agility," will join their emi?
nent services; whilst a most extensive
menagerie, trained horses, and clowns,
brimful of rich humor, will fill up the
little gaps in the evening's performance,
left open by the above named perform?
ers, or the corps of musicians and come?
dians, who engage to furnish tho audi?
ence and spectators with "floods of
harmony and acceptable facetire." "The
grand street procession" is anuounced
"to eclipse in gorgeous display" any?
thing seen before, including Casteilo,
we presumo, and his Bactrian camels.
The turning loose of Bengal tigers,
lions and leopards may be a novol fea?
ture-indeed, we may say it is-and add
that is the only feature of which we do
not approve; our appreciation of a lion
aud the royal Bengal-there is no reason,
too, why the leopard may not be includ?
ed-is greatly enhanced by viewing them
safely confined in a well-secured cage;
aud we confess to a preference to seeing
them there, rather thau loose iu the
streets of Columbia. Colonel Ames de?
scribes himself a "Southern man," and
certainly his conduct in our sister city
Atlanta marks him ns of our kith and
kin; as the Colouel generously bestowed
the proceeds of one of his entertainments
upon the "Ladies' Memorial Association"
of Atlanta-a graceful charity and com?
mendable liberality which should be?
speak him a kiud recoptiou everywhore

Colouel will have the good attendauce
aud full houses which our people have
