Tike Conclusions R.CKctie<I.
There are some men who, juetly prid?
ing themselves upon their disposition to
think, judge and decide for themselves,
are disposed to decry party organizations
aa inconsistent with.freedom of thought
and action. Na one oan possibly appre?
ciate more than ourselves tho element of
independence in thought and conduct.
We deem it an essential part of manhood,
and we would as soon part with life ns
with our individuality. Now did party
connection or adhesion necessarily iu
volvo a sacrifico of one's individuality,
we are free to say, that we could never
be of any political party whatever. But
it does not, and it is well for society and
country and family that it does not. For
.were men of independent views and cha?
racter driven from the ranks of organized
par tics, thou would public affairs in coun?
tries under a popular government fall
under the control of such elements as
would soon utterly Wreck it, with all its
interests of public order and tranquility,
of religion, education and pro pert y. Tho
caco is simply this, in a practical point
Of Vi?wVln ?f?t odntotry,;jfcties are a
necessity. Not only do they preserve the
popular equilibriurjitYnofc only do they
uct ns chocks and* balances upon each
other to th? public advantage, but they
tire tho actual means whereby direction
is given io the administration of public
affairs. Ii a mau has a certain policy to
carry out, he must, ex rei necessitate, use
party instrumentalities to accomplish the
end in view. Again: In a popnlar go?
vernment, the people are apt logically
and naturally to divide into two great
divisions. Now, these grand divisions
existing, the citizen, desirous of partici?
pating in public affairs and of exerting
his influence in them, if ho seeks to ef?
fect a practical result, must, perforce,
unite himself with ono or the other of
these great parties, into which the mass
divide and falk And if ha cannot en?
dorse all the views held by either party,
he must, of oourse, act with that one
that' approximates closest to his own
views of policy and principles. He must
do this, or throw away his influence. To
be absolutely independent in action, in
such a oise, is to ber a political cypher.
A man in such an instance, may be a po?
litical fl gu re-head, but he will bo that and
"nothing more." But ono more point:
We proceed to show, that in identifying
himself in political aetion with the party
of his selection, ho need not abdicate his
. individuality-need not surrender his in?
dependence as a mah. When an intelli?
gent man proceeds to act with the Demo?
cratic or the Republican party, we do not
understand that ho thereby and thence?
forth adopts any and everything that is
put forth by the party with which ho acts.
We are Democratic-that is, we adhere
to the Democratic party iu its general
spirit and features-but we hold ourselves
? free to criticize and oven to oppose any
thing that we deem objectionable, though
iu a Democratic dress. And such, we
presume, is the spirit that controls every
intelligent man, whether Democrat or
Republican. To take any other view of
the matter, is preposterous and absurd.
We oertainly do not feel ourselves bound
to uphold any and all notions that Demo?
cratic men, or journals, or conventions
may enunciate. If a Democratic fool
says something that wo do not approve,
we are no more expected to stand by
that, than we wonld expect an intelligent
radical to endorse all the fooleries and
absurdities that appear under a radical
cloak. Fools, "who rush in where angels
fear to tread," may utter the senseless
cry-"Our parly, rigJtl or wrong." Bot
sensible mon, with duo regard to truth
and deoency, will say-"Ourparty wrong,
we will seek to make il right." Heneo, our
1. That parties must exist in free coun?
2. That the voters naturally divide into
two great divisions.
8. That the voter must, for practical
purposes, fall into lino into one or the
other grand divisions of thc political
4. That ho must join the corps noarest
the same complexion with himself.
5. That in doing this, ho makes no sa?
crifico of his independence, as he enlists
to fight with associates and not to think
with them exactly alike.
6. That he must fight with one parly
or the other, or throw away his powder
7. That after joining the ranks of tho
selected corps, ho is not blindly to fol?
low, but may essay to lead it in thc path
of victory and success.

A Northern speaker has well said:
"Russia had her Poland, Austria her

Oar co temporary of the Win u ab o rc
Netos has ailudod ta the fact that ia tho
Demooratio p?rty oonfliotiog tiow? are?
upheld IQ relation to the flnanolal quoa
tioua of the day. That able and icpsr
tial journal, the Baltimore Sun, in au ar?
ticle republished iu our col nco nu in our
issue of the 17th inst., gives an easy ex?
planation of the discrepancy to which wo
are referring. It very properly says,
that tho language of?the Chicago plat?
form, which nominated General Qrant,
and that of tbe New York platform,
which nominated Mr. Seymour, are olike
ambiguous with regard to tho phraseolo?
gy used in rcferenco to the public debt.
Tho Sim pointedly says:
"Both parties agreed substantially that
the debt must bo paid 'according to the
terms of the coutruot.' But what were
those terms? That was precisely tho
question that men were loft to answer
for themselves, according to thoir own
notions of what was just or expedient.
It was this ambiguity in the Democratic
platform winch enabled Gov. Seymour
and Mr. Pendleton to stand side by Bide
upon it. It was tho samo ambiguity in
the Republican platform which, while it
satisfied the bond-holding interest at tho
Eastward, did not offend the non-bond
holdiug tox-payera of the West."
This, it will bo seen, shows very plain?
ly wbonco arose tho discrepancy butweon
the views of even leading Dem?crata on
this question. It will also bo seen that
a similar discrepancy prevailed in the
Republican party on the same subject.
But the main point that we desire to
moke with tho News is, that in order' to
show that the nnti-radicalists ol Uouth
Carolina should sever party association
with their natural allies-the National
Democracy-it mast give a bettor argu
! ment than that based upon Democratic
I differences on the subject of finances.
And further, assuming that the News will
accept a fair-minded view of the matter,
we repeat the point previonsly made
that party differences on some pointe aro
not inconsistent with a hearty and unani?
mous co-operation on the main question.
Now, the point of attack for us in South
Carolina, and for the Democracy in gen?
eral, is radicalism in power, radicalism
entrenched in office, dispensing tho
spoils, and wielding tho sword of govern?
mental patronage. Our policy is, disre?
garding minor differences, to direct our
forces upon the radical citadel. Our ob?
ject should be to plant upon that citadel
the triumphant colors of Democratic,
constitutional rule. And with this ob?
ject we should not hesitate to take into
our ranks all who are willing to strike
against onr politioal foes; whether he
hails from tho North, South, East ot
West; whether he believes the national
debt ought to bo paid in greenbacks 01
in coin; whether he believes in the fif?
teenth or six teen tli amendment, or ic
neither; .whether ho bo black, yellow, 01
white; whether ho comes from Alaska,
and is a pet of Mr. Sewurd; or comet
from Africa, and is a pet of Mr. Sumner
or comes from China, and is a protege o!
Mn. EDITOK: In your issue of the 14th
an article signed "Citizen," commenting
on the action of tho Committee of Way!
and Means of tho City Council, domaudi
that tho facts should be known. "Citi
zen" says: "No statement was mudo t<
Council that the treasury was short o
means." Hod "Citizen" have looke(
over tho proceedings of Council on tin
10th of July, ho could have read the fol
lowing paragraph, viz:
"The financial condition of tho cit;
proveutB us from making any very libe
ral appropriation for the purpose thi
yoar. Tho city, however, will necessari
ly have to appropriate a sufficient sum ti
cover the expenses that will have to b
made to accommodate all those who ox
hibit at tho approaching Fair. As th
appropriation will be large, it would b
advisable to consult the wishes of th
tax-payers of thu city on the subject."
After tho meeting of citizens anthon/
ing Council to erect tho buildings, th
Mayor called two meetings of Council
when tho appropriation of funds woul
have boen brought up, but no qtiortu
hoing present on oithor occasion, it i
difficult to seo why tho Committee (
Ways and Means should bo blamed fe
others' absence. Tho majority of Com
eil decided it was to tho interest of th
city that tho Fair should be held in C(
lumbia; and that by erecting suitabl
buildings, tho Stute Agricultural nu
Mechanical Society might lind it to the
interest to continuo holding it, nnnuall;
at tho capital. Having but a limite
i time, and being awaro thut weeks mu:
elapse beforo a quorum of Council coal
be had, the Committee, with the appro'
al of his Honor tho Mayor and the Cit
Attorney, borrowed the amount uecess
ry to accomplit!h the object in view; tin
hesitato not to say, in their judgmen
tho investment is a good one. Win
would our citizens have said if tho Coe
mitteo had douu nothing, and allow*
this matter to remain in slatu quo? 'flu
would have .justly said: ''Council has, I
thoir supinoheau and indifference, pr
vented tons of thousands of dollars beir
spout in our midst, and given a fat
check to an enterprise which would ni
doubtedly have redounded to tho bene!
of the people of the whole State."

AJTOTIUTR RADICAL OnTBAO?.^Tb?
Yankee radical journals aro alwavB filled
with "rebel outrages," whioh have no
oxiatenoe except in the brains of the vii
laina who invent them, but they never
have room for the real outrages against
law, order and personal liberty which
their minions are daily perpetrating in
these South oro territories. 'Oar reade ra
remember the killing of A. O. Buffin,
the radical sheriff of this County, at the
last State election, and that the perpe?
trator.of tbe deed was unknown. Guv.
llullock offered a large reward for the
arrest of the alleged] murderer, but with?
out securing bis discovery. Yesterday, o
couple of tools of Constable Hubbard, of
South Carolina, arrested a quiet, peacea?
ble citizen of Hamburg, S. C., Mr. Ro?
bert Cunningham, on tbo churge of kill?

instance, of Hubbard, who mudo aflidavit
to the effect that upon information re?
ceived, he had reason to behove Cunning?
ham committed the murder. Tho pimps
of Hubbard wbo mado the arrest, went
into Cunningham's storo on Thursday, in
a friendly way, taking drinks there, and
statiug that they would call again yester?
day morning, which they did, arresting
Mr. Cunningham, placing him in irons,
and taking bira to Columbia. Thus has

H ay ti continues in a most unsettled
condition. Salnuve manages to retain
tbo Presidency, but has left his array, it
is said, on account of ill health. The
majority of the Haytieus, it is stated, aro
still devoted to Salnuve, notwithstanding
tho perturbed condition in which he
manages to keep affairs. The currenoy
of tho island has depreciated at a fearful
rate, $1,100 in paper being equal to one
dollar in gold. If it is true that the peo?
ple of Hay ti still have confidence in Sal
nave, they certainly have very little faith
in his promises to pay.
National banks uro forbidden by law to
loan to one person or company moro than
one-tenth the amount of their capital
stock, which is supposed to prevent tbeir
indulging in speculative jobbery; bat if
they make such loans this defiance of the
law does not invalidate tho loan but for?
feits the privileges of the bank. It is
the lender and not the borrower that
must suffer, for the lender is the party
tho law has a hold upon. Such is the
decision on tho point just rendered in
the United States Circuit Court.

Carolina's earliest times, and extends u
to the present year, 1869. In the po:
