. 'Fighting Im Detail"-The View* or th?
In an article on the political situation
in this State, and on the views expressed
by different journals, our ootemporary
of the Chester Reporter says:
"The Charleston News, after having
exhausted ita ingenuity in constructing
Democratio platforms, suddenly lays
them all aside as rubbish, and runs np
the colora o? the Citizens' Party. The
PBOZHTX, pursuing the even tenor of its
w.ay, is for sticking to the old name and
organization; bnt thinks it best to draw
it mild-to have some kind of a pro
Eressive, conservative Democracy. The
. aurenaville Herald is for a bold, square,
stand-up fight, under the old organiza?
tion add old colors. The views of these
three able ootemporariea fairly represent
the different shades of opinion expressed
by the opposition press of the State.
Now we don't agree fully with any of
The Reporter goes on to explain why,
in its judgment, the term "Democrat"
should be eschewed, but why the term
"Cititem' Parly" should be discarded,
and goes on to remark :
???But lest we may seem hypercritical,
a'ud illustrate the.old truism that it is
much easier to pull down than to build
up, we frankly own that we are in favor
of no Organization, and consequently of
no Hame. The policy of the opposition
party, in our judgment, is to toko tho
platform some time ago proposed by thc
Union Times-opposition to official dis?
honesty-and urge a guerrilla warfare
all over the State against tho party in
power; leaving it to each County to
adopt whatever measures may seem best
to secure the election of honest men to
the Legislature. By this plan, the radi?
cals will be prevented, in great measure,
from consolidating the terrible enginery
of their League agaiust us. Fighting
them in detail, they will have to fight us
ia detail. We can bang away at them
from behind every rock of principle, we
can keep up a running fire from behind
all the rascalities and thieveries they
have committed, we can, to a great ex?
tent, prevent concert of action among
them, and will thus be enabled to out off
many of their bummers and foraging
parties. To secure one or the other
brauch of the Legislature in the hands
of honest and capable men, is the thing
we must lend all our efforts to. And to
accomplish this, the plan suggested by
us, seems the most hopeful of success."
Our cotemporary will allow us to say,
that we regard its mode of fighting os
fatal in the extreme. The anti-radicol
i8ts of South Carolina have before them
a disciplined body, under admirable
party drill. To fight this party "in de?
tail," is for us to be whipped ' !iu detail. "
Not in this way will the State be re?
deemed from the control of the domi?
nant party. Tho fact of thc matter is
simply tliia: We must consent to defeat in
some Counties, iu order to bo successful
Comrades of the Reporter, let u.s have
a line of battle extending from the sea?
board to the mountains, and let not this
line be broken at "old Chester." Nor
need yon sink tho name DEMOCRATIC.
That name is historic. Rightly inter?
preted, it means no harm to the negro.
And let this be borne in mind, that the
colored voter, as a guueral thing, vote?
tho radical ticket, not because he hates
the term DEMOCRAT, but becauso ho
clings to the term RADICAL. YOU can
toll him off" from radicalism no sooner
with one party name thau with another.
We may have made Democratic blunders
in 1808. Why need they be repeated?
No! we need uo new. party-no new
name. We may need a change of linen
or a change of shoes. As the New York
World suggests, because tho Democratic
party may be paring its nails, let no ono
suppose that it is disintegrating.
Again-wo notice that the Reporter
alludes to us as "pursuing the even tenor
of our way." Tho Reporter does us jus?
tice in saying this. Amid the doubts and
varying suggestions that have boen made,
we have moved steadily on, advocating
a plain, direct, active, consistent pro?
gramme. Under tho Democratic Hag
which we upraised in 1SG8, wo stand
now, changing only so far as it is neces?
sary to meet new issues, and to acknow?
ledge accomplished facts. Now, as thcu,
we seek to recover the State from tho
dominant party. Now, as thou, we ad?
vocate political reform, industrial activity,
popular enlightenment and white immigra?
tion, Now, as then, we counsel a mod??
ration which sliall bo "known of nil
men"-a faith which lives os-ti fidelity
which shall preserve tho "whiteness of
our souls," and a resolution which shall
meet its fruition only in success. But
of one thing we are satisfied-that, after
all, these minor differences between us
in South Carolina will ultimately be
fully adjusted. Tho lino of fight will bo
unbroken, and if a gap should occur, ero
battle is joined, patriotism will moro on
nndclose it up. How eau this be doubted,
when the spirit of our journals is doubt?
less zach, us is contained in thc closing
lines of the Reporter?
"Wo aro not, how j ver, unutterably
wedded to eur scheme. These arc the
days of suggestions, and we throw ont
oars. If the opposition party determine
Opon a different course of notion in con?
vention assembled, we will give the de?
termination of tfeat constan tion attentive
consid?ration, and if wo find there ia
nothing radically wrong in it aooording
to our notious, wo will give it oar warm?
est support, ev?n though it may not
jump with our ideas of expediency."

WASHINGTON, D. C., March 9, 1870.
Ben. Butler has appointed a negro to
a cadetship at West Point. This will be
the first of his raoe to enter that time
honored institution. Ben. did not do
this for any love he has for the negro,
(it may be for his sister,) bat because ho
has a love for tho diabolical. He likes to
bo the meanest of his kind, (he is, natu?
rally,) but then he feels that he must
givo some outward manifestation of it.
What bot a spirit of depraved malignity
can prompt these men to bo constantly
pushing aside their own race and thrust?
ing forward an inferior one into places
of emolument and honor? Negroes in
the Senate of the United States; in our
counsels; in our public departments; in
the academy at West Point. Nothing
except perfect political and social
equality will ever satisfy them. Whether
this will ever be brought about, is a
problem which only time can solve.
The investigation by the Military
Committee of the sale of cadetships, is
making quito a stir among a class of
fellows hanging about Washington, who
make it their business to get acquainted
with each now member of Congress ns
soon as he arrives in town. When once
iutroduocd they aim to, and, very often,
succeed in ingratiating themselves in tho
member's favor. The object of this in?
troduction is to get Congressional influ?
ence to aid them in lobbying bills
through Congress, obtaining clerkships
in the departments, influencing domestic
and foreign Presidential appointments,
and securing Government contracts, &c.,
?ve. Au effort is of course made to im?
press each member with the belief that
these fellows are philanthropic, aud are
acting iu good faith and for a particular
Pomeroy is pressing a bill in thc Senate
for curtailing the privileges of tho peo?
ple of tho District in the sale of liquor.
While he is an advocate of temperance,
he has been engaged in so many little
money making schemes that we natu?
rally think money has more to do with
this bill than solicitude for tho welfare
of tho people. The effect of tho bill
will bo to cat off all small deniers and
throw their trade into the hands of tho
monied monopolists. The largo dealers
can well afford to pay to have the small
ones closed ap. We do not mean to say
that tho honorable Senator has absolutely
sold out to the large men of tho whiskey
ring, but that his past history is not so
spotless as to vindicate him entirely from

Correspondence of the Phcenix.
UNION TOWN, ALA., Murch 7,1870.
Mn. EDITOU: TO an observant traveler
there is, if I may nee the term, a national
consanguinity between the citizens of
South Carolina and tho citizens of Ala?
bama, that is very palpable. Throughout
Georgia there is a peculiar Northern ac?
cent, Northern manner, and Northern
habit, that is observable in neither South
Carolina nor Alabama. Possibly Ala?
bama may bo a foster child of South
Carolina. Georgia certainly is not.
Politically, there is a sympathy ex?
pressed in both States for South Caro?
lina, and, I think, entirely gratuitously,
for I cannot see that we are a whit worse
off thau they are. Truly wo are all sub?
merged in the slough of rascality and
ignorauoc. The Legislature of Alabama,
recently adjourned, is a counterpart of
our mongrel body, perhaps, if not quito
so sombre a hue. Tho lighter shade of
Alabama's legislators, however, doesn't
betoken greater purity of character, for
most of her members aro scallawags, and
of all men they are certainly tho most
contemptible. Sitting recently in the
gallery of tho House, iu Montgomery, I
heard the Chairman of the Committee on
tho Penitentiary read his report. Before
he finished, a negro member sprung to
his feet and, without asking the privilege
to say a word, simply shouted, "Mr.
Speaker, that report is iucorrect; the
gentleman says those prisouers that were
paddled were not penitentiary prisoners.
I know they were, for my friend told me
they had on striped clothes."
The committee man simply turned and
replied: "They were not penitentiary
convicts, and if tho gentleman says they
were, it is false, and ho tells a falsehood."
The negro, without having taken his
seat, spread out his arms with a few con?
vulsive jerks nud said: "I give tho gen?
tleman to understand I thinks ns much
of my word as ho do." (?) This ginger?
bread fellow was u representative from
\ Mobile, aud had recently been admitted
j to the practice of law in Alabama.
Shades of departed heroes, wheu I sat
i and looked upou that scene, und reniern
i bcrod that I had from the samo place
I drunk in the eloquence of a Yancey, or
I been perfectly fascinated with tho bril
j liane} of a Hilliard, I could but solilo
! quize, Oh! temporal Oh! mores!
Moutgomery is the same relined and
i flourishing city it always was. There ie
I manifested a degree of thrift and enter
; prise very commendable, but I cannot
j uuderstaud what is to add to its wealtl
I or population. It is situated iu a fertile
I region, but this fertility will be barret
capital, unless the population could bo
materially iucreased. Westward from
Montgomery, only forty-five miles, it
tho rival town of Selma, aud tho two will
soon be connected by a railroad, aboul
i fifty miles long, though heretofore thej
I have been 110 milos apart by the river.
Selma is at present connected by ar
? almost air liuo of railroad with Vicks
j burg, and by another with Rome, Ga,
I Wheu the link is finished to Montgo
! merv, (only teu miles incomplete,) th(
i two places will bo connected with thc
; seaboard by two routes, and it seems tc
: me, in that event, nothing but immigra
i tiou will enable tho two cities to main
I tain their present population.
Eufaula is a very nice, pretty anc
wealthy city, iu South-eastern Alabama
aud is daily growing larger. All ovei
the tow n, new buildings are going up,
and tho capital of that section is pro
. jei'tiug three railroads-ono nearly com
I ploted to Moutgomery; a second up tin
' river to North Alabama, and a third ot
. the air line principle to Vicksburg. Th?
South-westeru Railroad now connect;
j Eufaula with Macon, aud another rail
j road is being rapily projected iron
i Brunswick, Ga., through Albany t(
, Eufaula. Tho capitalists of these vari
: otis roads are sauguino that in a fev
years this will be tho great thoroughfare
i from the Atlautic to the Pacific Ocean
from Brunswick to Eufaula, thence tc

Railroads run in and out of that little

old plantation system-cannot control

are making but a small portion of what

CRUMBS.-Horse accidents aro all the
go. Last week a fine horse, belonging
to Col. Patterson, killed himself by run?
ning against a post. Yesterday morning,
as the circus band was passing, a horse,
attached to a buggy, belonging to Mr.
Pelham, became frightened and ran into
tho open cellar, corner of Main and Plain
streets. Thc colored driver jumped out
and escaped unhurt. The horse wa.-:
slightly cut, and tho buggy somewhat
injured. By-the-way, it would improvo
the appearance of the streets materially
if these traps wero enclosed.

ETIQUETTE OE THE AGE.-The great
want of tho age, says au exchange, is a
treatise on etiquette. Chesterfield,
D'Orsay and Lunettes each contributed
to the literature of their generation valu
ble works on this subject, and we regret
that no gentleman of tho present age
has yet opened ground in such a wide
field for improvement. In these days of
reconstruction and moral ideas, tho na?
tion has naturally looked to some "man
of mark," to write an exhausted treatise
ou the "manners and customs of this
generation." Ahem! Wo will try and
fill thc vacuum that has been so "long
neglected by other "slap-dash writers,"
by adopting tho following general hints

The Macon Telegraph seems almost
driven to despair because the Georgia
planters will plant cotton and not corn.
This is the way it gives utterance to its
woe: "Next spring, perhaps, Georgia
will be high and dry on the shoals ot
Cape Disappointment, with her bottom
stove out and all the boats lost. Cotton
down, meat and corn to buy, some
$4,000,000 or $5,000,000 of debt to pay
for fertilizers, and everything in a
weaving way generally. Then we will
pay our debts, according to the invaria?
ble custom, with a 'relief law,' which
won't cost much money, and no great
sacrifico of honesty, seeing that we have
so often relieved ourselves of that article
in times past! But where are the corn
and meat to come from? We shall not
be surprised to see Georgia catch fits in
about a year from this time, and no
planter be able to smile bat he who bas
a lull com crib aud meat house."
