Wednesday Morning, Befit 1, 1P89.
No Hew Fart) -But New Vitt. -
We are not disposed to ignore the li?
beral apirit that has boon manifested noi
: only in Virginia and Tennessee, but also
in the ranks of tbe radical party else?
where. Nor are we inclined to indulge
in any harah criticism upon the plausible
notion entertained by some thai another
party organization on the" part "of* the
Democratic masses of th? South would
result in good;
We favbr latitude ; of Jhonfut ?nd ex?
pression, and advocate independence
even within the lines of ppr ty, forma?
tions. Yet we submit that'there can
come no good from tho proposed ?'third
party"-atleast, to -tibe anti-radicalists.
We need, evit?me ^?hrnal has well ex?
pressed it, net so mttoh a new pnrty os
new vigor, Hence, it is, entertaining
these views, that we are. gratified to find
that littio favor attends the suggestion
to form "a third party" in South Caroli?
na, It ?S likely that the an ti-radi cal peo?
ple and press will romain united, as nsu
all,'' jj^'j?^SA?sfiod that tho Ba?d move
cab dO' no teaod to the anti-radicalists,
and if co'uB^mrfla.^?d, would do harm,
'Shd hnrrn only. At this time, to say the
least, it would divido tbe whites, ??nd
gain no strength from tho colored rotors.
Already has the chief organ of the m
dioate^^ on this point.
is no ground for com promise.. It holds
that South Carolina "Republicen is ni" is
as pure natue artioio over gots to be. If
radicals elsewhere have been proscriptive
and ?xtromo, not so here! In South Ca?
rolin's^ from tij$ first, radicalism has
been liberall Ahr} it adds that the Re?
publican party of South Carolina stands
n cm, and has ever . stood, upon the very
ground since taken by Walker, in Virgi?
nia, and by Souter, in Tennessee. Thus,
it argues, why establish a "conservative
Republican party,*' when you have got
one already ?
Now, these views will no doubt be ac?
cepted by the great majority of those
who have been* sustaining radicalism
here. And if so, it can be seen at a
glance what chance there is for the
.'third party" movement. No; not in
this way, Carolinians, can yon redeem
your State; nor can you get any nearer
to your salvation than earnestly to ud
here to a liberal Demooracy. In that
faith let us romain firm. Let tho columns
remain united, though open to acces?
sions; and when we do win a victory, lot
it be ono the fruits of which will be en?
during and substantial.
Though,, however, no new party is
called for, let it be borne in mind that
there is room in the old for new life
new energy-new vigor. In the last
Presidential canvass we favored a pro?
gressive and a liberal policy on tho part
of the national Democracy, und we ad?
vocated a qualified suffrage for the freed?
man as not only right in itself, but ns a
necessary concession to the opinions of
our friends in the North. We believe
that time has vindicated tho wisdom of
tho policy adopted by the South Caro?
lina Democracy, though success did not
reward their efforts. Now, as then, wo
advocate a liberal, progressive Demo?
oracy-one that recognizes accomplished
facts-that deals with living and practi?
cal issues, and one that will commend
itself to the support and confidence of
all true, moderate and reasonable men,
and bring iuto hearty co-operation all of
tho best elements of the State.
The Montgomery, Ala., Advertiser de?
clares that all that can be said of the bat?
tle of Gettysburg is that Gen. Leo failed
to carty the position of the Federal
army-that "it was a cJieck of the invad?
ing force, and although the effect of this
chook was, remotely, of exceeding ad?
vantage to the Washington Government,
still, in a purely physical sense, the ^at?
tie was really a drawn one." "Subse?
quently," it oontinues, "Gon. Lee, after
awaiting and apparently courting attack
for three days, retreated into Virginia

General John Coburn has written an?
other lotter in favor of tho removal of
the national capital. Ho speaks of the
new demands to be made for millions
for buildings iu Washington, and urges
that if the same amount were expended
in a self-sustaining city, no further calls
would bo made for city improvements.
He also thinks that thc capital should bc
removed from the social iufluoucesof thc
East, and placed where the purifying,
nationalizing and patriotic power of the
great Mississippi Valley shall bo felt.

TIM Haw Kodlcal Mala laSamt* Ca^ollaa.
From tho demagogue-like speech at
olaasJ? hall-?rom tipo tone oj? several.
edj?briels in me CBarlostOn? Republican,
ar? from tW-ideas imt^for?-by tkV
Columbia correspondent of eaid paper,
we observo the new role of pseudo-Re?
publicanism in this State. Having j
doped tho colored voters, and bound
most of them fast in party chains, the
ridiculous o Cfo rt is n ow m ak?u g to array
th? poorer class of whites against what
is colled "thor aristocracy" and "big
men," and radicalism is commended to
the laboring2 class of whites ns tho very
thing for thom-! Unfortunately for tho
argument, wo are all very poor now, ex?
cept, for tho most part, those adventurers
and' native' renegades that are preying
npon the body of tho State; and, as for
"aristocracy," tho only aristocracy that
we know of is that of intellect and
virtuo, excepting the aristocracy of tho
bond-holders, whom it is-the special duty
of radicals to uphold. The potty effort
will scarcely suooeod, nor'can all tho
labors of ps?udo-Republieanism com?
mend it to intelligent, thinking men.
Certain it is that the strong bond of sym?
pathy between all those who. oppose the
intriguen, corruption and misrule Of the
ruling party in this State, cannot bo dis?
turbed by tho obvious artifices now being
employed. Another poiut: It seems now
to be regarded very desirable to secure
.,-hUe accessions, It appears that it is
no longer deemed safe for the radical
pyramid to rest upon, a bitch base, and
the white stone which tho builders have
heretofore refused they would now like
to make tho. corner stone. Accordingly
we are asked to believe that, under tho
influence of "State Senator Wimbush's"
eloquent harangues in Chester and Lan?
caster, a number of white men came
forward and struck hands with tho per?
suasive orator. And so. too, we aro told
that the Loyal League of Columbia is in
a flourishing condition, meets freqjently
and numbers so many whites among its
faithful member^ Now, if there are 100
whites who meet tho League in .Tanney's
Hall, as tho Republican's correspondent
says, the community would doubtless
like to know them-not for proscription
-not for malediction-but for curiosity.
Titree Prominent White Citizen* Seized
and Hard} Escaped Hanging-Tlie
From a gentleman who arrived yester?
day morning on the train from Macon,
we learn the following particulars of a
negro riot in Burko County, which, but
for tho prompt measures of the white
citizens, would bave been attended with
most serious results:
It appears that the dead body of a ne?
gro was found on Sunday morning at
Herndon, Station No. 9, on tho Central
Railroad. Tho cause of his death was
unknown, but the negroes in that vicini?
ty at once attributed it to the Ku Klux;
and as a rumor to this effect soon circu?
lated, gaining additional horrors as it
spread, tho excitement among them be?
came intente. From all the neighboring
plantations they began to assemble, evi?
dently summoned by some controlling
authority, until nt least 300 armed men
were holding angry council.
Without going to any examination or
inquiry as to tho cause of the death, they
determined to tako tho law into their
own hands-or rather to disregard all
law, and hang th reo of tho most promi?
nent citizens of the place, ns they al?
leged, in retaliation for tho murder of
one of their color. Accordingly, they ar?
rested three brothers namoi! Jones
most respectable citizens, and doubtless
well known to many in Savannah-whom
they dragged away from their terrified
families without explaining thc nature
of their designs upon them, or allowing
a last word, and hurried into tho woods.
Without delay, they began to make
preparations to hang their tbreo victims,
who now for tho first time realized the
horrible fate awaiting them. With ad?
mirable presence of mind, ono of tho
brothors begged to bo allowed to go un?
der escort to say farewell to the families
of tho three, and give soire last direc?
tions to them. To this, the yelling de?
mons would not accede; but, finally,
through tho intercession of one of the
negroes, whoso heart was hardly as black
as his skin, they consented, und the
brothers parted, with this slender thread
of hopo buoying them up, that the de?
lay might afford timo for a rescue. Ar?
rived at his house, Mr. Jones managed
to escape from his escort and make his
way to the station just as a train was
coming in. His story was quickly told,
and, as quickly ns a locomotivo could do
it, the train was backed down to Milton,
where a forco of fifty armed men was
hurriedly collected and en route for tho
scene of this outrage. Meanwhile the
hanging party had delayed their opera?
tions, waiting for tho return of those
who had escorted Jones, while they, in
their turn, ignorant of the direction he
had taken in his flight, bad kept up n
vain search, not daring to rotnrn with?
out him. Tho arrival upon the scene of
theso fifty determined and well-armed
men put an end at once to tho court of
Judgo Lynch, rescued tho two con?
demned men and caused an instanta?
neous stampede of tho negroes. Several
of the ringleaders were, however, cap?
tured and given up to the proper au?
thorities, who will, wo trust, deal with
them as t"hey eminently deserve.

.erj?? that j?bjs olass exerts. With rare

Speaking of the carpet-bag class of Con?
gressmen, tho New York World says:
Now.that the people of the Southern
Stntes are slowly emerging from the con?
dition of captives to recover their rights
with their duties as citizens of the Union,
it will beginj perhaps, to be clear to all
men's perceptions not only'-that tho chu-a
of persons known as "carpet-baggers"
really aro held in contempt at the South,
but, also, that they deserve to bo hoi'1 in
contempt, and thnt in tho North ns will
as in the South. The carpet-bag in it?
self is a harmless necessary impediment
enough, nor is it intrinsically contempti?
ble that a man whose whole worldly
goods are compressible within a carpet?
bag should pack them into one, tnko it
np, and set forth in search of fortuno.
Honest men, men of sense and of cha?
racter, with or without carpet-bags, are
needed in the South, as they aro needed
in tho West, in the East-wherever there is
work to bo done, wherever there are re?
sources to bo developed and opportuni?
ties to be put to profit. Nor is there
any reason to suppose that tho South,
any more than the Wost or East, desires
to repel such persons from its borders.
The "carpot-bagger" whom the South
abhors is co sich.person. Tbc true and
odious "estipeJ-bigger" is apolitical ad?
venturer who hus got piase hod pelf for
himself by making the poverty and pa
litical prostration of tho Southern whites
work together with tho credulity and ig
noran ce bf the Southern blacks for his
peraojnal. advancement. All honest and
respectable Northern leaders of tho party
with which such adventurers have neces?
sarily acted know perfectly well that the
I arts and influences by which the "car?
pet-baggers" have gained their object
are influences and arts which no honest
and respectable man could possibly uso
either at the South or nt the North.
Knowing this, they naturally shun all
but the most strictly formal associations
for strictly political purposes with such
Tho average radical Congressman frcm
the North is not much of a boro, nor
does he greatly resemblo the Douglas of
Sir Walter Scott's chivalric poem. But
he has sense and self-respect enough to
make ns sharp a difference between the
official and tho personal daims of the
average radical "carpet-bagger" from
tho South ns was made by (ne grim Old
Earl between the official and the person?
al claims of tho Euglish envoy:
"My manors, hallo, and bowers shall ?till
Bo open at my aovoreign'a will
To each one whum he lista, howe'er
Unmeet to be the owner's peer ;
The hand of Donglaa is his own,
And never shall in friendly grasp
The hand of such as Marmion clasp."
This abject and twilight condition of
the radical carpet-baggers in Congress is
one of the many hopeful auguries of the
near dawning of a better day. Tho con?
tempt in which these men aro held is re?
acting, slowly, perhaps, but surely, upon
tho system which has called them into
being. Tho spectacle of a class of Con?
gressional Pariahs representing tho ty?
ranny of nu ignorant minority over an
intelligent majority, cannot but be revolt?
ing to a free people. Armies and acts of
Congress may muke such a spectacle pos?
sible for a time. They cauuot make it for
any long timo tolerable.
PITCHED BATTLE IN TENNESSEE.-Au
exciting fight took place at Pocahontas
Station, on the Memphis und Charleston
Railroad, last Monday. A notorious
horse thief had been arrested a few days
before and committed to jail at that
place. On Monday morning, about 1?
o'clock, a party of some ten men,
strangers iu thc region, and supposed to
bo residents of the neighborhood adja?
cent to tho village of Jonesboro, in
Itawamba County, Mississippi, rode into
Pocahontas, and after "liquoring np"
pretty freely, commenced swaggering
about tho village, expressing their deter?
mination to rescue the prisoner, if they
had to shoot every man in the town to
do it. This put the authorities on their
guard, and when the rescuers were drunk
I enough to begin their little gamo, they
wore met by a posse of determined men.
A fight ensued, commenced by the ma?
rauders, in which they were terribly
worsted, the first volley of the posse
bringing six of them down seriously
wounded. A regular battle was gone
through with, in whioh, strango to say,
only ono of tho citizens was wounded
Mr. George Nnglo bciug shot through
the thigh. Tho horse thieves, findiug
themselves out-generaled, mounted their
horses and fled in hot haste, leaving two
of their wounded in the hands of tho
authorities. Pocahontas, on tho borders

Davis, which has not heretofore-laen
modo public, as far as I know, and a
part of whioh is only known to him and
myself: In coming through South Caro?
lina, he and myself riding ahead of our
company, passed a cabin on the roadside,
when he asked a woman who was stand?
ing in the door for a drink of water. On
handing it to him sbo said, "Are you
President Davis?" On his replying in
the affirmative she said to him, pointing
to ?? little boy barely large enough to
walk a little, "That's your namesake; we
call him Jeff. Davis." He took from
his pocket a gold coin, apparently the
size of a three dollar piece or sovereign,
and, handing it to her, told her to give
it to the little boy, saying to mo as he rode
off that that was his last piece of coin,
whioh he'had kept as a sort of keepsake
on account of its being a coiu seldom
seen in this country.
* Subsequently, when in company with
several members of bia Cabinet, the sub?
ject of their finances was mentioned,
and their poverty was made, among
themselves, the subject of passiug
amusement. Mr. Davis took out his
pocket-book and counted, I think, about
S270 in Confederate Treasury notes, then
nlmost entirely worthless, and said,
laughingly, that was his fortune in
money. He then added, that it was a
sourqe of jfrat?fi?ufioi? rather thau of re?
gret that uinitfelf and nearly all the mem?
bers pf b.i? Cabinet hud sacrificed their
private fortunes in the struggle for the
liberty of the people. I will also add
that when it was determined, after the
'surrender of General Johnston, to trans?
fer the field af military Operations to the
West of the Mississippi, one of his Cabi?
net told Mr. Davis that ho had money
enough to take them both across that

I am persuaded that the wise, and
good, and honorable, ev?>n among those
who thought him wrong in his support
of the cause of Southern independence,
and imperilled their lives in opposing
him on the battle-field, will accord to
him sincerity of convictions as to the
righteonsnoss of the causo in which ho
was engaged, integrity of purpose, and
those great qualities of head and heart
which titted him to bo tho leader of a
heroic people in a great struggle. I
know the time has not yet fully como for
explanations like this to be received
without offence to the prejudices of
many good people, who have only viewed
Mr. Davis of late years as a public ene?
my. But I trust now, since that cause
bas been forever abandoned, the gene?
rous and just will see that I but perform
a duty to one who, while he is in a dis
taut land, is yet very dear to me and to
millions of others in tho United States.
The President of tho Norfolk, Va.,
Board of Trade, recently recoived a let?
ter from Commodore Jansen in relation
to the proposed establishment of a line
of steamers between Norfolk and Flush?
ing, in which bc speaks against going to
Liverpool to meet the New York interest,
but advocates the opening of direct
trade with Holland. He says thero is no
difficulty about establishing this trade on
the Holland side, for all tho present and
future exports from Norfolk will find n
ready market there; but thc difficult.) is
on the Norfolk side, where there is no
market for tho German exports, and on
account of tho mixed population, and
the want of centreing railroads and other
avenues of drainage from tho interior
country. He has been telling tho Hol?
land merchauts not to go to New York
among tho thirty-six steamers that arrive
thero every month, and have great diffi?
culty in getting return cargoes, but to
send their steamers to Norfolk, with cash
to buy retina carg?os from tho planters,
because they aro poor. In the beginning
! there will be difficulty in disposing o?
the cargoes from Holland, as well as in
iuducing emigrants to go to Virginia, but
in two or three years he believes a brisk
trade can bo built up. To succeed, how?
ever, ho says there must be earnest and
fuithfnl co-operation on the American
side. Ho hopes to receive n substantial
offer from Virginia to present to the Di?
rect Trade Convention, which meets in
Flushing in October, so that Norfolk
and tho South may rolizo tho benefits
which mnst assuredly acciUo from such

SELBST ELOQUENCE.-O'Connell was
amazingly powerful at times; but one of
his most effective displays was a silent
reply to u youthful member, who made
au attack cn him that was quite unique.
The almost breathless assailant was so
frightened at his own audacity that, after
a few stammering sentences, he broke
down, and making various wild and
voiceless gestures, tumbled upon his seat
amid a chaos of sounds. The shouting
having subsided, the great agitator rose,
and looked at tho greatly agitated with
so comic a smile that uproarious laugh?
ter was the immediate result; then, shak?
ing his head, as much as to say "the poor
fellow has quito enough," he turned qui?
etly to the speaker, and began to talk
about somethiug else. Better acting
was never seen on any stage.
