COLUMBIA, a C.
Saturday Morning, January 29,1870.
STATE RIGHTS SHORT OF SECES?
SION-THIS NOT LOST TO THE
We have taken the ground that the
gravest feature in radicalism is ita policy
ol centralization, and that the beet feature
of (he national Democracy is its udher
enoe to the rights of the States. Intaking
thia ground, it is not to be assumed that
we are reviving a doctrino which the
sword of power decided against us. We
do not deny that State rights, in the
light of nullification and secession, has
been settled against ns. This it is that
forms a leading element of the "lost
cause." < The late great war was fought
upon the question of secession. That
was lost. But the point made by us is
this, THAT SHOUT OF NULLIFICATION AND
?SECESSION, TH EKE IS A MOST VALUABLE
nODX OF BIGHTS Y?HICH HAVE NOT ?EEN
8URBENDBBED HY THE PEOPLE AND TUE
STATES. This is the State rights to which
weding. This is the State rights to
which New York, Ohio, California and
other great States cling. This is the
State rights for which we contend in
iCommon with a large body of the people
North as well as South. This question
is not sectional. It is national. It
douches the country from its centre to its
circumference-from its limits North to
its limits South-from its limits East to
its limits Weet.
The New York Journal of Commerce,
one of the moat influential papers in the
North,, takes ground that is identical
with that taken by the PHONIX. It
agrees with us that the great national
issue to be made with the Bepublican
party is upon ita consolidating, centraliz?
ing tendency. It agrees with the PHO
Nix, also, in this, that tho Democracy
must accept what has been decided, and
address itself to new and living issues.
The fact of the matter is, that we have a
right to claim that the policy of this
journal, since it took its stand in April,
1868, has been steady and consistent,
and that time has vindicated the sagacity
of its counsels. Standing midway be?
tween the extremes of a too exacting
Democracy, and sternly opposing the
outrages and extravagances of the radi?
cal party, we have moved on logically to
our present stand. Our present is the
natural sequence of our past.
THE DANGER OF THE TIME.
We have again and again condemned
the leading feature of radicalism, which,
ia a broad, national point of view, is de?
votion to the doctriue of centralization.
This view we have frequently urged.
At the North, wo would oppose it, be?
cause of its consolidation feature.-its
effort to strike down the judiciary and
the executive, and to absorb within its
Congressional majority all power. At
the South, we oppose it, for this, but
also for other features, equally objection?
able. We are glad to find our views con?
curred in by that able and influential
journal, the New York Journal of Com?
merce. We copy the following article
from it. Long as it is, it will be found
to repay perusal. The Journal of Com?
merce says :
"THE DANG EH OF THE TIME.-With
merely factious opposition to the ruling
party, we can have no sympathy. It
proceeds, in almost all cases, from poli?
ticians, whose only ambition is to turn
out the 'ins' and take the Oovcrnmcut
.spoils themselves. We would fain be?
lieve that the radicals do many things
from a sincere belief that they aro right
and just, and would hope that, in the
end, some of them will prove beneficial
to the oonntry. So fair and moderate
and disinterested a view, in which the
claims and interests of parties are subor?
dinated to those of the conntry, no par?
tisan Democratic politician can, in tho i
nature of things, take; and, therefore, j
it is no cause of surprise that the Demo?
cratic State Conventions of New Hamp?
shire and Indiana, recently assembled,
should have found nothing but occasions
for severo criticism and denunciation in
tho acts of the governing party. Tho
effect of these broad, wholesale censures
upon the policy aud conduct of tho
radicals will hardly be what is expected
by the authors of them. Old party alli?
ances are, and should be, still further
broken up, and it is the height of folly
for tho Democrats to undertake to fight
new campaigns on old issues, which the
peoplo have already decided. Tho object
of that party, representing, as it docs,
the nuoleus of opposition, should bo to
detach the more independent and con?
servative of the Republicans from the
connection that they now hold. The
Democratic managers understand this
well enough, in theory, but they fail to
incorporate it in practice. To*particu?
larize a single example of their want of
tact and adaptiveness: They do not, in
their platforms, bring into suf?cioutly
bold relief the paramount evil of thc
doctrine of centralization. Thia is a new
doctrine, invented, patented and enforced
by tho radicals. It is tho foundation
principle of their policy, as developed
from time to time iu Government mea?
sures. It is distinctively anti-Democratic,
antl-Ropublicnn aud auti-American, of?
fensive to thc pride and dignity of States,
aud must, sooner or later, make itself
odioui to grout masses of met: who now
?ote -with the Republican patty. For
thenreaant. we.observe ita effects chiefly
on tap ftathefp nnteqi?tatflnot?? States,
which aro rolel froija JvaahiogWa ah ?J
rod ol'iron, its mejpileesly ?tf$eldfjp. a?
that m Ibo Oat of Kassia ore? the.aub-'
jacta of his duj?ant prov?nose. The out
rage opon th? Georgia Legislature, the
whole conduct of Congress towards Vir
ginia, (which will probably culminate in
the upsetting of all that she has done to
get back into the Union,) in violation of
the most solemn pledges, are the latest
oroppings out of the centralization move?
ment. The focal point is Congress-and
that ia the most alarming thing about it.
The leading spirits in the soheme in the
Senate and House are gradually absorb?
ing the powers of the Executive-so that
he is already bid a passive instrument in
tlieir hands-nnd they clearly aim to
monopolize, also, the functions of the
Supreme Court of the United States.
Controlling the patronage of the whole
Qovernment, and dictating the judicial
decisions-having nt their back and com?
mand vast multitudes of beneficiaries and
tools all over the country-they hope
and expect to insure their re-election ?icr
Centralization is but another namo for
a ring, composed of the radical master
politicians, to whom the humbler mem?
bers pay fealty and receive their reward.
It is insatiable, and must continue to
grow in avarice and insolence, until it
extends its baleful effects over all the
States of tho Union, or is broken up and
forever overthrown by an indignant peo?
ple. When the South is reduced to a
perfectly submissive and helpless state at
the feet of the centralizers, and her Le?
gislatures do only what they are ordered
to from Washington, then will come the
turn of the Northern States-and there
the shoe will pinch. From dictating to
Georgia and Virginia, Texas and Missis?
sippi, there will be but one step, and
that not a long one, to issuing and exe?
cuting mandates upon the Legislatures
of New York, New Jersey, or any other
Northern Democratic State. The prece?
dent of turning out a Democratic repre?
sentative from Kentuoky and installing a
radical in his place (for no earthly reason
except thal the former was accused of
having sympathized with the rebellion)
may bc as properly followed in tho case
of a member elected from any Northern
State. Congress has fully as much power
to do it in one instance as the other. If
the people of New York should, some
year, have all their Democratic Congress?
men scat back to them, and their seats
given to the radical contestants, they
would then appreciate the power and ty?
ranny of centralization. But wo would
have them find it out and combat it be?
fore it has made such progress. To ex?
plain its evils and fix theattentiou of the
American people upon the immediate ne?
cessity of overcoming this fatal principle,
should be the main duty of the opposi?
tion. It will not suihee to refer to it iu
a word and then dismiss it, as the New
Hampshire and Indiana Conventions did,
but tho greatest stress should bo laid
upon it. Old grievances and buried and
forgotten differences should be passed
over, and a rally uttempted to bo made
of what is left of the spirit of true Re?
publicanism and Democracy, of Ameri?
canism and freedom, for tho rights of the
several States within their proper limits
against this enormous and all-grasping
despotism of centralization. It is now
the weakest and most nssuilablc point of
radicalism, but if allowed to remniu un
attacked, will soon be built up into the
strongest part of its system. lu a cam?
paign properly begun aud vigorously
carried on for its downfall-putting no
other motto thuu 'anti-ceutralization'
on the banners, we believe that the Demo?
cratic putty could rely on she .support of
largo numbers of those who now general?
ly act with the Republicans."
TUE SOUTH CAROLINA, ELECTIONS.-The
Baltimore Sun gives the following report
of the debate in tho House of Repre?
sentatives on Monday, on the South
Carolina election case of Wallace, radi?
cal, against Simpson, Democrat:
The House then took up the contested
election case of A. H. Wallace vs. W. D.
Simpson, from the Fourth District of
South Carolina. The resolution of the
majority of thc committee declares that
Mr. Wallace has tho prima facie right to
the seat. That of the minority declares
Mr. Burdett, of Missouri, addressed
tho House in favor of the majority reso?
Messrs. Randall, of Pennsylvania, aud
Burr, of Illinois, argued in favor of the
miuority report. The discussion was
further continued by Messrs. Cessna, of
Pennsylvania; Bowen and Whittemorc,
of South Carolina; Stevens, of Ohio;
Burdett, of Missouri, nnd others.
Tho question was then taken, first
upon tho resolution reported by the
miuority of tho committee declaring
neither Wallace nor Simpson had the
prima facie right, aud which was offered
as an amendment. The resolution was i
adopted-yeas 103, nays 73.
Mr. Kelsey, of New York, then moved :
to lay the resolution as amended on the I
Tho question then recurred upon
adopting tho umcuded resolution, pend- j
iug which Mr. Whittemore moved to
adjourn. Rejected-yeas G8, nays 100.
After some further tilibusteriug, the
resolution rs umcuded was tabled.

The bridge is what is termed the "im

It was commenced about the middle c
June, 18G9, and was actually brough
into uso during thc rainy spell, and cor
sequent risc in tho river, duriug th
Christmas holidays-a feat which give
satisfactory proof of the energy of th
