Suaday Moraine, October 24, 1869.
Paith, Hope and Chatltj?-Th?i? Th re c,
Wt ?fcc GrcnUH ol UMM, Politically, ut
?BUS Tim?, la Faith with Worke.
We do not aspire to preach a sermon to
our readers. We leave that to better
men. But we deaire this day to speak a
?ord to a certain class of our follow
citizens in Bon th Carolina. We speak
not at this time to tho colored citizens of
South Caroline. By the - great majority
o? these wo know full well that our words
*ould pass by, like the idle winds which
we regard not-for we ?re coi thor "radi?
cals" nor 1'conservativo Republicans."
Wo are neither from Now England nor
yet from Africa; but-terrible thing-we
are to the "manor'bom," nay, more, an
ox-slavo-halder and aa "ex-rebel," of the
deepest dye We speak, therefore, with
the hope of more effect io that portion
of -our fello w-o?i izons at present so slight?
ly represented iu South Carolina-that
portion vvhiob, representing' largely the
refinement, the tono, the intelligence
and the capital of -the State, are yet vir?
tually proscribed \indor tho prevalence
Of radical reconstruction. We speak to
the oitizens o? S o nth Carolina, with
whom the past of South parolina is as?
sociated with brave, high, tender and sad
memories. We speak to those whom tho
late war loft with bleeding hearts and
shattered fortunes. We speak to tho
falsely styled "rebel" class of tho State.
To them, we repeat the heading of our
article, and say, friends, associates in a
common cause, "Have Faith, Hope and
Charity"-these three, but above all, cul?
tivate faith. We know that there are
men in the State-good and true-who
are disposed to break their swords and
give up in South Carolina the political
field to the rude party that now walk it
ia triumph, gathering the spoils. But
this will never do. The hearts and homes
that we cherish in South Carolina, tho
love we bear tho commonwealth, the
duties that we owe our wives and chil?
dren, a thousand high considerations all
bid ns to work on in the spirit of faith,
hope and charity, to restore our State to
the rightful rule of her intelligent, true
and virtuous sons. This is a consumma?
tion good for the white man-good for
the black man-good for South Caro?
lina united and btvrmouious-good for
the interests of capital-good for the in?
terests of labor-good for tho cause of
religion? morals and education. Wo
ask, then, the white men of South Caro?
lina-her youth and manhood-not to
give np the political field. Let us, at
least, fix upon a policy that is sagacious,
vital and likely to be victorious. Let us
have charity for all, and malice for noue
-hope in our future-faith in our po?
litical principles and our ultimate suc?
cess. Let us endeavor to improve and
purify, if we canuot supplant, the rule
that is over us. Let the whites of South
Carolina seek to exert a just influence in
tho government of the country. An ex?
change says: "It is the Government that
their own sages and heroes helped to form.
It is tho Government under which,
willing or unwilling, it is their destiny to
live, and it should be their desire and
aim to make it as perfect as possible. If
a bad Government, or if badly adminis?
tered, they will have to enduro its evils.
If a good Government, and well adminis?
tered, they will participate ia its bless?
ings." We aro part and parcel of tho
great Government at Washiogton. If
so. let us seek to secure our portioa of
its benefits. Let us purchase noue of
these benefits by unmanly concessions.
But, as far as wo can, let tho strifo ami
bittcraoss of the past be lost ia hopo and
work for tho future. To restore our
State and our South to its pristine vigor,
woalth and prosperity-to its former
pride and spirit of independence; this is,
indeed, a noble work, worthy of patriot
toil and patriot effort. As an exchange
suggests: "Why should wo give our?
selves up to sad thoughts, gloomy fore?
bodings and unavailing tears-to useless
regrets for tho past, which we cannot re?
call-when there is so much of promise
in the future which belongs to us, and
whioh we may command." And most
heartily do we respond to tho invitation
of the New York Republic, when it says
to the people of tho South:
"Let us shake lennis once more, and
with the broad, uadissovered banner of
the Union floating over us again, pledge
eternal fealty to the land of our fore?
fathers-together fighting its battles and
sharing its glories."

TUB SYNOD OF SOUTH CABOLISA.- The
Synod of South Carolina motin Chestor,
October 20. From the Reporter we learn
that the Synod is composed of eighty
six ministers, and ILA. churches. The
boundaries of the Synod are co-exten?
sive with the State, and it includes four.
Presbyteries. The Synod is connected
With the General Assembly (?. S.) of the
Presbyterian Church, South, whioh ex?

sides the State of Kentucky, and a
hopeful expectation of being reinforced

peojpe of theJStatjr)
kno.*n With what
ness they obeyed the call ot dnty ; and it
ie equally well known with what courage,
and fire, and persistency, they fought
during the war. Son th Carolina was
nobly illustrated by many wbo fell, and
by many who now lito. And her noble |
women, in n, style unique and heroic,
did their part by. the soldiers, ju the
field, Jn the camp, and ia the hospital.
There "?as but one party is South Caro?
lina. The man who labored at home
and those who fought in tho field alike
aided and abetted the so-called great
Southern rebellion. Now the times are
ohanged. New virtues are in demand.
New duties hare arisen. Other trials are
upon ?B ex-rebels, and we pass through
the ordeal of new temptations. What,
now, is thc manhood that we are called
upon to practice? Manhood, now, of
the genuine order, calls apon oar people
for industry, energy and economy. These
are tho potent means whereby we are to
bo rouewed, and invigorated, and inspi?
rited. These are the weapons with whioh
we are to fight the foes to our prosperity.
Again, it calls upon our people 1or faith,
patience and forbearance. Faith ia tho
re-establishment of ourselves and our
State-this wo laust have; ami we must
bo patient, too, in waiting for our deli?
verance; and forbearing, also, under tho
pressure ot our bitter persecutors.
Again, and abovo all, we mast be true
to our honest political convictions, and
loyal to the just claims upon us of tho
memories of tho post. Wo must stand
up for the cause that wo deem right,
even amid defeat. We must do this in
reason and moderation, or elco we loso
that vital spirit of a mau or a people
self-respect. At thia timo in particular,
in our own State, when the loavos and
fishes of office are apt to tempt mea from
the paths of honor and propriety, it is
proper for us to mark well those who fall
in shame by the political way-side, hun?
gering after the "flesh-pots of Egypt,"
and unmindful of what is due to their
State and their families. When ve seo
mea who "bead the pregnant hinge* of
the kaee, that thrift may follow fawn?
ing," mark them well-uot for injury;
not for persecution; not for hate; but for
just scorn. These men may, for awhilu,
flourish like a green bay tree, bat not

Andrew Johmon not Klecled--Thc Phi
loinpbf of the Defeat Svggestefl.
We regret to have to say that Andrew
Johnson failed to be elected by a few
votes. Mr. Henry Cooper is tho Sena?
tor elect from Tennessco to the United
States Senate. Thus has tho character?
istic feature of this era been illustrated
we mean that this is tho era of middle?
men. The bold, outspoken, leudiog
master spirits in politics give place to the
class of middle-men-men who stand mid?
way between the contending parties
nieu who, because they have no very
great earnestness, have few or no politi?
cal enemies. Perhaps this is well, but it
docs seem not very fair that those who
strike tho blows and deliver thc battle
and win tho victory of intellect, should
not be allowed to wear tho wreath and
enjoy tho honors. Bat so it has ever
been, more or less, ia this couutry, since
the era of Washington, Madison, Adams
and Jefferson. Neither Clay, nor Web?
ster, nor Calhoua, roached tho Presiden?
tial chair, aad yet they were avowedly
master spirits-men who commanded the
atteatiou of "listening Senates" and led
mea captivo to their views. But wo re?
peat the proposition, that of all the eras
wo have had, this of all eras is thc era of

r MT DEAS QENEBAI.: Aa I tWd to yog
i inmediately after your election, that
there was no officie which I desired either
for myself or any friend, I have had no
occasion to write to jon in regard to
auch matters. There is a matter now,
however, that concerne- you personally,
and in which I feel that I discern your
interest BO plainly, that I take the liberty
to write to you with reference to it I
do this with leas hesitation, because you
did me the honor after your election to
con fido to me pretty fully yonr views.
In the present disturbed state of the
public mind concerning the recent gold
combination, is it not the quiekest and
surest Way to set at rest the great excite?
ment and uneasiness which prevail, for
you to make a brief denial over your
own signature of all foreknowledge of
that combination, in order to relieve
yourself entirely from all responsibility
for the acts of others? Of conrse, those
who know YOU personally do not require
auoh a disclaimer; but the great publie,
whose minds arc liable to be warped by
the determined and persistent efforts to
injure you, will be, it seems to mo, at
once satisfied and quieted by such a state?
ment. Sincerely yours,
WASHINGTON, D. C., October 13,1869.
Robert Donner, Esq.-DEAR SIR: Your
favor of tho 11th inst ?mt is received. I
have never thought of contradicting
statements or insinuations made against
mo by irresponsible parties, as those arc
alluded to in your letter, bnt ns you
havo written to me on the subject, iu so
kind a spirit, I will say that I hud no
more to do with tho late gold excite?
ment in New York city than yourself, or
any other innocent party, except that I
ordered tho salo of gold to break the ring
engaged, as I thought, in a most disre?
putable transaction. If tho speculators
had been successful, you would never
have heard of any one concerned with
the administration ns being connectod
with the transaction. Yours truly,
U. S. GRANT.
N. B.-I have written this in great
hosts, and without exercising judgment
as to the propriety of writing it, but I
submit it to yonr judgment. U. S. G.
We think it ovident that the President
did not exercise judgment as to tho pro?
priety of writing this note for Mr. Bon?
ner. It is better for the Ledger thnu foi
the President. The World, whilst ac?
quitting General Grant of any conscious
complicity with the gold gamblers,
thinks it plain that ho was tho dnpe ol
artfnlmen. The World presumes that Mr.
Corbin-tho President's brother-in-law
had obtained from General Grant tho in?
formation under which the gold gambler*
acted, viz: That the Treasury did no!
intend to make any large sales of gold,
This information, tho World presumes,
was either fished out of General Grant,
or was unconsciously given by him
without suspecting what usc would bc
made of the knowledge. Thus having
unconsciously caused the speculation
the President consciously intervened t<
break it down, in order to protect hi
own reputation against injurious suspi
cions. Such, at least, is the version o
tho World, and it seems disposed to bi
fair. On the question of General Grant'
explaining himself to Mr. Bonner, tb
"Wo quite agree with the opinion, o
rather the misgiving, expressed by Gen
eral Grant, in his postscript, that he ha
made this reply to tho friendly officious
ness of Mr. Bonner, 'without exeroisinj
judgment os to tho propriety of writiu)
it.' Mr. Bonner ovinces his usus
shrewdness in contriving to exhibit him
self in the Ledger and (as tho correa
pondenco is certain to bo universal!
copied) in all tho newspapers of tin
United States, as standing on u footiui
of close intimacy with the President o
tho United States. But the ndvantog
of this pleasant billing and cooing is no
mutual. President Grant, 'withon
exorcising judgment,' unconscious!
lends, himself to promoto tho interost
and reputation of an enterprising join
nalist, much as. equally 'without-exex
cisiug judgment' or knowing what h
was about, he became tho 'innocent' nc
complice of the gold gamblers. 'Inno
cent!'-yes; if, in his exalted station
ignorance can bo innocent; if being
tool without knowing that ho was a toe
is innocent, thon General Grant was a
innocent 'as a babe unborn' of nil th
mischief perpetrated hy the gold opera
tors. But tho baba unborn is irresporj
siblo, whilo tho ehief magistrate of
great nation is in a position of responsi
bility which precludes him from takin
shelter behind a pica of ignorance."

ton seed. Its production will be abont
500 gallons of oil and six tons ol oil
oake per day, and it will be in full ope?
ration early in December. It ic vites
every planter in tho State to send his
cotton seed to have the oil expressed1 on
toll, and the cake returned to be used as
feed for his mules and horses, Sod those
who wish may also become stockholders
and participate in the large profits which
the enterprise promises. Working in
this way, on the mutual principle, owned
and controlled by the planters them?
selves, this enterprise is oho well worthy
the encouragement of all interested in
the development of Southern resources,
and keeping our money at home. Tho
value of cotton-seed oil cake as feed for
stock has only recently been discovered,
and when it is once appreciated, the cul?
tivation of corn for Stock-feeding will be
abandoned. The Eeport of the Com?
missioners of Agriculture, Washington,
