COLUMBIA, S. C.
Saturday Morning, March 86. 1870.
President Giant TS. Governor Scott.
The remarks attributed to Gov. Scott,
as given in our issue of yesterday, are to
be invested with some importance-not
so much because of the mao, as because
of the office be holds. We regard his
reference to South. Carolina as offensive
and uncalled for. At the same time, bis
remarks, conceived in the spirit of the
braggart, and singularly inappropriate in
ono claiming to be the chief magistrate
of the people of South Carolina, may be
rogarded as characteristic. Gov. Scott
refers to the campaign of 1868. The
history of that campaign, so far as bo is
concerned, and as respects bis dealings
with prominent gentlemen in this State,
has not yet been given, and when it does
soe the light, it will reveal the present
valiant Governor in other and traer colors
than those in which ho presents himself
before an audience in the far off city of
Washington. Now he puts on the lion's
skin, and roars like a lion. Han he for?
gotten the time when, ailee ted by unne?
cessary alarms, he was as gentle as a
lamb? But it is the rule for timid na?
tures, when imaginary dangers are no
longer felt, to affect a valorous role and
to seek to excuse their baseless alarms.
Gov. Scott speaks of the "Southern Con?
federacy," and talks of the "rebel ele?
ment"-thus pandering to the feelings
which good men, both North and South,
are seeking to allay, and thus to. have a
Union restored indeed. Let us say to
Gov. Scott that the "Southern Confed?
eracy" need not occur to him to disturb
his nerves. The men who sustained that
cause sui rendered at the order of Lee,
Johnston, Taylor and Kirby Smith, and
like honorable and brave soldiers, are
mindful of their new obligations. Bat
tho Governor refers also to the "rebel
clement." Wo know of no such element,
in the sense in which be uses the term.
But there is a rebel element in South
Carolina, and in the South, and in the
North and in the West, also. Wo mean
the element disposed to rebel against of?
ficial dishonesty, bribery, thieving, ex?
travagance, and political rascality in
general. We mean the element that op?
poses wickedness in high places as well
as low places. We mean the element
that demands economy, retrenchment
and reform in publie affairs. We mean
the element that insists upon it that the
few shall not fatten whilst the many grow
poor. We mean the element that oppo?
ses the political vam pyres that all through
the South are drawing the blood from
prostrate States and impoverished com?
munities. If this be rebellion, then there
is a "rebel element" at the South, and long
may it live. Bat we differ from Gov.
Scott, and "the element" referred to dif?
fers from Gov. Scott in this: He prefers
"the Wiuchester rifle"-we, albeit not
unused to that weapon, prefer the peace?
ful remedy of the ballot, and with the
ballot we hope to viake our rebellion against
corrupt government good. But enough on
Let us now contrast Ihe spirit of Scott
with the spirit of Grant-"the man of
war"* with "the man of peace." General
Grant, with a magnanimity that does
him honor and which is suggestive of
the terms accorded by him at Donelsou,
Vicksburg and Appomattox, is looking
anxiously forward to the time when he
can propose a measure of general am?
nesty, and from bis chair at Washington
hold out the olive branch to an harassed
people. Gov. Scott, in n different spirit,
proposes to keep old wounds open, and,
spurning the banner of peace and good
will, bolds aloft the "Winchester rifle"
as the symbol of government in tho
South. "I tell yon," says Governor
Scott, "that the Wiuchester rifle is the
best law." Thus stands Grant, and thus
btuuds Scott. Judgo ye between thurn.
In the coming election we desire all
citizens entitled to vote, to cast their
ballot. We desire to coerce no man-to
intimidate no one. We want fair play.
We waut equal and exact justice. But,
judging from Gov. Scott's warliko utter?
ances, wo have beeu Iud to suppose that
he imagines that he can effect something
ly intimidation. It looks liku he was
disposed to imitate porno of those rulers
who rest their power upon tho bayonet
and tho rifle. Let us suy to bim that, if
this be HO, he is reckoning without his
host. Thoso who intend to vote against
tho proseut rule in South Carolina wi!! du
so. They will abide hy tho laws of the
laud-they will adhere with calmness und
discretion to law and order, hui they
will exercise with tirtuuess thoso rights
extended to them uiidur tho laws of thu
State uml of thu United States.
