REDUCTION IN PRICE- CLUBBING.-The
WEEKLY GLEANER contains more reading
matter than any other family paper pub?
lished in the JSouth-thirty-two long
columns, printed in clear type. It is
filled with original as well ns selected
matter-editorials, correspondence, gene?
ral nows, markets, telegrams, interest?
ing stories, sketches, poetry, etc. Its
columna are now graced by a highly
entertaining nouv?Ue?e, the production
of. a . lady of this city, and which has
been pronounced by disinterested critics
aa equal to the very beet of "Marion
Harland's" works. This story is entitled
"Orkney, or tho Fortunes of Juliet Clay?
burn-a tale of the Palmetto State," and
will run ihrough about twenty numbers
of tho "GLEANER. " As we are desirous
of introducing tba paper-which is in

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY-IS IT
VICTORY OR DEFEAT?
The Anderson Intelligencer wants to
know if the Democrats of this State in?
tend to be active and progressive, letting
"the dead past bury tho dead," and look?
ing forward with manly resolution to tho
things before them. If they do this and
address themselves to living issues and
practical propositions, it intimates vic?
tory. If not, defeat. We answer that,
in our opinion, the Intelligencer need
have no fears on this score. We behove
that those composing the Democracy of
South Carolina, from one end of the
State to the other, are thoroughly united
and fully in accord with the hopes of the
Intelligencer. We feel satisfied, from the
intimations that have reached us, and
from our own observation, thnt the
Democratic party of South Carolina in?
tend to bo a progressive party-a party
of genuine reform-a party of practical
aims. It will, we assume, make no un?
necessary issues-it will concedo all the
political rights given to the freedmen by
law. At the same time, in behalf of the
interests of all elapses of our mixed popu?
lation, it will demand a reform of exist?
ing abuses. It will go for the iufiux into
our State of labor and capital. It will
go for the encouragement of all the in?
dustries. It will seek to secure in South
Carolina that harmony and good will be?
tween the whites and colored people, so
promotive of the general weal. It will
place npon its banner "reform and work."
When, therefore, the Intelligencer asks:
"The Democratic party-is it victory or
defeat?" we reply, the Democratic party,
liberalized, invigorated, energized-it is
policy-it is principle-it is duty-IT
CAN RE VICTORY.
THE CONDITION OK BUSINESS. - A writer
iu Hunt's Merchants' Magazine says that
a majority of the suspensions recently
have been those of small firms, whose
combined liabilities are scarcely equal to
those of a single first-class house. Most
of the failures among the dry goods
commission houses have arisen from the
firms nesuming the responsibilities of
manufacturers, and taking the risk of
unprofitable mill properties. Ho be?
lieves there is really much in tho preaont
coudition of the country to bespeak
satisfaction and confidence, and that u
fair survey of the fiold warrants the ex?
pectation of a steady, prosperous busi?
ness in 1870, and that the mercantile
community need less to be cautioned

THE DKMOCBATIO PABTY OF TBXB STATS
-Is rr VICTORY OB DEFEAT?-The news?
papers of this State have been discuss?
ing, for the past several weeks, the plans
of the approaching campaign. The
opinions and sentiments appear to be
various, showing the imperative neces?
sity for oonoert of action, whioh is ad?
mitted on all sides to be the great ques?
tion of the hoar. It is not proposed in
this article to point out the means to
bring about entire harmony and unani?
mity among the opposition to the present
radical administration-these will be de?
velop od at the proper time. But as an
indication of publia sentiment in this
region, where Democracy has its firmest
stronghold, it is meet that an expression
of the views entertained by this journal
should go forth to the world. This will
be done briefly.
The questions entering iuto the cam?
paign of 1868 are no longer under dis?
cussion. Negro suffrage and its append?
ages are fixed and irrevocable facts, so
far as the inhabitants of this State nre
concerned. In Federal politics, the
groat iden of centralization is the ruliug
motive of thc radical party, and mutt bo |
combatted in other State? yet to feel tho
tread of its iron heel, for here its work
j has beeu accomplished for tho present.
! The tariff", currency aud excessive taxa
I tion by the Federal Government, with
j kindred questions, are likely to form tho !
nucleus ot opposition iu the North and j
? West to the rciguing dynasty. Dut with
I these questions, altogether, the people
! of this State are not so directly ioterest
j ed as to absorb their attention, espo- |
j cially in preference to domestic affairs
! which more intimately concern their j
; welfare and the prosperity of the State. !
? It is fair to presume, then, that Federal !
. politics will be tabooed in tho coming !
I canvass, and that every attention will be j
i giveu to secure an honest aud faithful |
! representation of the peoplo iu both j
j branches of tho Legislature, uud in other '
high offices. lu order to secure this de
j sirabio object, it is unnecessary to beat
I about dead issues. The Democratic
j party in this State must be progressive
and active, not slumbering among the
ruins of the past, however glorious that
post may be. If it is essential to it? sae
I cess, heretofore leaders must bo laid
Inside, uud men imbued with strength
! and activity placed in tho van. Not that
? inexperienced hands should guide tho
; helm, but to infuse new life and vigor it
! may be necessary to obtain tho services
j of such as are not prejudiced by a Life
i time education against what has been iu
j evitable. With the Democratic party no
; longer tilting ut wind mills, it is highly
j probable that tho co-existent races in
j this .State might adjust the differences of
j tho last three or four years, and solve
. tho difficult problem before them, to the
great discomfiture of the aHeus aud
j foreigners now ruling this ?State, aud
j whoso feeding at the public crib is ut tho
I expense of black and white alike. A
I guarantee of equal political privileges,
under the law as it uow stands, is noth
I inp moro than duty requires, while such
! a declaration from the Democratic party
i would go far to removing tho obstacle
now in the path of tho negro against
I affiliating with his white neighbor.
I Until at least this much is done, the
I radical majority of 30,000 will not be
j effectually reduced, and years might in
; tervene before tho opportunity is again
I so favorable towards ousting thc corrupt
, demagogues from place aud power. Are
j the leaders of our party prepared to
take this step forward, and assume all
the responsibility and meet the conse
I queuces it entails upon them? Hence,
we submit the question, is it victorv or

MAXTKrta m YORK-Yo BX UNDER "PRO
TIonoN."-Tho Enquirer says: On Sa?
turday evening of week Woro last, the
citizens of our town w?ro snrprised bj
the arrival of a mall detachment (six in
number) of State Constable Hubbard's
police force. As there had been no news
ot any disturbance in the Conntj, con?
jecture ran wild as to the object of the
visit. Our correspondent "H." to whose
letter we refer the reader, explains the
mystery and gives some account of the
doings of the now preservers of the peace
of our Couuty. Wo learn, in addition,
that the company now numbers seventy
It is a source of deep regret, if any
of the citizens of York, knowing how
eagerly au excuso for military interfer?
ence is snatched at, have given so plausi?
ble an occasion as the burning of a house.
There is some doubt about their partici?
pation iu the uftair; for we hear that
H?llender, who made the complaint to
Governor Scott, told his Excellency that
he believed the party of so-called Kn
Klux came from North Carolina. Be
this as it may, we know that tho public
opinion of this County is totally opposed
to mob law in any .shape, and we hope it
will make itself heard on this occasion.
The spirit of law and order is nowhere
more prevalent than in York, and a com
parisoDlmay bo challenged with auy part
of thia broad lund, ?is to the scarcity of
crime and the safety of person and pro?
perty, both of which ure chiefly duo to
the general morality and good sense of
our people. House-burning ia not jus?
tifiable in their eyes, and they always
have, and always will, by due course of
law, punish and suppress it.
Wo have, therefore, n word of censure
for the Governor, who is responsible for
inflicting upon us the insult that the
laws cuti not be enforced, or property
protected hen-, without the aid of a mili?
tary force. He hua acted without the
authority of law, in this case-for the
law allows him to usc military force oui}*
when he knows that the civil officers are
nuable or unwilling to afford protection
j to any citizen asking it. Our Sheriff,
and, as far as we can learn, our magis?
trates, wore not called upon atoll, but left
\ iu iguorauce of the fact that a crime had
been committed, until the arrival of their
unexpected allies iu tho work of preserv?
ing tho peace. Under these circum
' stances, the Governor is bound, in honor,
I to explain to our citizens why ho has
! interfered iu tho matter. In the absence
! of any reason for believing that life and
i property are unsafe here, he is further
j bound to remove his State constable?,
I and disband his volunteer force, who are
? merely liviug at the expense of the
County and in no sort of way "protect?
ing" anybody or anything. We call
upon thu Governor for his evidence in
the caso, iu order that our people may
j know when to consider themselves (or
; rather, wheu he considers them) iu
