COLUMBIA; S. C.
Wednesday norning:, March 50. 1570.
A Point Bu P?M*nt.
The Winnsboro New? says:
"The PHOENIX ia candid; it wishes the
State tacked on the tail of the Northern
Democracy, and 'will stand alone* on
that, if necessary. "
We commend oar ootemporary to
'greater exactness of statement, and ask
that ita own inferences be not mixed op
with oar sentiments. In national poli?
ties, it is trae, that the PHCSDIX is in
.coord with the National Democratic or?
ganization and io opposition to the
National radical party, bat it is not trae
that we wish "the State tacked on the
tail of the Northern Demooraoy"-to ase
.oar co temporary'a phraseology. We
would have the State to exert in that or?
ganization the Influence that mind* and
earnestness exert everywhere, and we
desire Sooth Carolina to use her legiti?
mate influence in shaping the polioy and
SO'directing the courao of the National
Demooraoy, as will lead it to the restora?
tion of a harmonious Union and the tri?
umph of wise and jast principles of
"government. The Newe seems to advocate
"aeparate State action" in politics. We
'are now in accord with that policy which
would place Sooth Carolina in sympathy
.with, political friends, North, Sooth,
East, and West. We have been whipped
' back into the Union. We accept the
situation, and now are in for seeking to
have a national part and parcel in the
government of a common country. But
if oar ootemporary insists upon it that
.oar national Hoe' of action is a matter
of tail-lacking, then this we have to say,
that it is far better for South Carolina to
'bea "caudal appendage" of the Northern
Democracy, than for her to bo linked to
that party of "Great Expectations" and
* 'Small Performances"-called the "Con?
servative Republican Party"-which,
after all, in its last analysis, is but sugar?
coated radicalism, or nauseous physic
made easy to take.
A VOICE FBOMTHB PEOPLE.-A. towns?
man writes us as follows:
"I am decidedly in favor of calling
an carly convention of all opposed to the
present dominant party in this State,
with the view of establishing a bettor,
.more reliable and economical govern?
ment in this State, where the good,
honest people - of all classes, white or
colored, can live without being ground
down by taxation for the benefit of ttye
renegade and carpet-bagger, who cares
for nothing bat filling their own pockets.
.Ia my view the sooner this convention
is called the better, so as to fall on some
definite plan of notion, that all may fall
into the ranks, pursue and reach the
point aimed at, the redemption of the
State, out of the hands of foreigners, to
be governed by the native, bo they white
or colored, for tho mutual benefit of all."
THE LAURENS KAILKOAD.-This road
was to have been disposed of at auction
to-day, but Judge Bryan has ordered
otherwise, as the following will show:
"Ex parte T. J. LaMotte, in re thu
'Laurena Railroad Company. Petition
of involuntary bankruptcy. It was or?
dered that the Railroad Company show
cause on Monday, the Otb of May, at
Charleston, why they should not be de?
clared bankrupts, aud that Qeorgo W.
Waterman, receiver, be enjoined from
selling the property of tho said road, as
advertised by him."
DESTBOOTIVE FIRE. -Ou Tuesday last
a destructive fire occurred in thc woods
near Hardeevilio Station, on tho Savan?
nah and Charleston Railroad. A high
wind prevailed ut the time, and the fire
spread with great rapidity, destroying
almost the entire fencing of Mr. Butler,
as also other fences, negro houses, and
-crops planted. Many families, by this
conflagration, which extends over ten
square miles, have lost all they possessed.
'SEBASTOPOL.-The walls of Sebastopol
have now beou completely restored, and
upwards of three hundred houses have
been built ia placo of those which had
been ruined by the bombardment. A
new church, in the form of a pyramid,
built entirely of marble, has been erected
in the churcbyacd of the town, the cost
of its construction amounting to $140,
000, having been provided by thc Rus?
sian royal family.
DESERVED COMPLIMENT.-On Saturday
Mr. E. Montague Qrimke, the Secretary
of the Bourd of Public School Commis?
sioners, was made tho recipient of a
handsome testimonial in tho shape, of a
silver pitcher. Tho lady teachers of tho
Normal School were the douors, and
Hou. C. O. Memminger made the pre?
sen tatian. Appropriate remarks wert;

MR. E?rron: Writing for tb* proas, to
nfl Pi ik mnmnn ?T rt r<> oaf n n. "Ia oniirnlw
out of roy lino of business." Aud neither
do I attempt euoh a thing on this occa?
sion, simply for the reason oj seeing
some of my Imperfeet scribblings in
print; bat for the higher and more lauda?
ble purpose of contributing "my mite"
towards establishing that policy, and
laying down that line of principies which
are to be oar beacon light in the future
restoration of oar much beloved, down?
trodden and almost rained country. The
policy held ont by yon, and so ably and
consistently advocated from time to time
in the columns of yonr paper, meets my
hearty approval, and is the only one, ac?
cording to my opinion, tbat will wear and
stand the test to which it inevitably must
be pnt, ere we are through with our
many, and, it seems, increasing diffi?
culties. And it gives me much pleasure
to see that the anti-radical press confer?
ence, recently held in your city, have
unanimously adopted the same senti?
"Honesty is the best policy," says the
old adage, and T must confess I cannot
see the consist?e cy in a Democrat call?
ing himself a conservative, or any other
kind of a Republican, according to the
general meauibg and common accepta?
tion of the term "republican" at this day
and time. We all know very well what
we expected of President Grant, as a
conservative Republican; and we also
know full well what we Lave received, and
what we still may expect to receive from
his administration. Democrat, or if you
think it sounds more euphonious, con?
servative Democrat, is the inscription for
our standard. Let it be emblazoned on
our battle-flags, and as we enter the com?
ing contest this fall, unfurl them to the
breeza and fight the battle under those
colors; for under no others will we ever
gain that permaneut pence and future
prosperity which we so much conrt. In
this all-important matter we bave a two?
fold task to accomplish. Tho first and
most important is the restoration of our
own State and the Southern country nt
large, from that degree of thraldom and
vassalage to which we have been subject?
ed, us a class, by a bose and corrupt State
administration, holding the reins of go?
vernment aud cracking the party whip
over us, under the disguised and igno?
minious name of lawful legislation. Our
next, and not much less important duty,
after having "put our own house in or?
der," is a united alliance with the na?
tional Democratic party, for the ultimate
salvation of the Union. "Facts are
stubborn things," and there is no sense
in "crying over spilled milk," and mak?
ing war concerning dead issues. The
colored man, however strauge it may
se.om to the non-progressive of tho pre?
sent ago, is part and parcel of the body
politic of this country, which fact can?
not and need not be ignored. We must,
therefore, "take the bull by the horns,"
shape our course to this end, and act
accordingly. Wo have frequently known
much good to result from what seemed
to be great evils. And why may not
hopo, that ever-present solacer of the
humau breast, stimulate ns to press for?
ward, trusting to time and Divine Provi?
dence to work oat that glorious end wc
KO earnestly desiro and so ardently be?
lieve must and will be our future destiny.
The negro, taken in a literal sense,
and as a whole, is nothing more nor less
than a machine, liable to be moved and
worked by agencies most suitable and
best adapted to his superstitions, selfish
and ovil-suspeoting nature. What, there?
fore, could have been more natural than
for him, under nil the circumstances, to be?
come the grand instrument in base hands
of sowing the seed of vice and corruption
broadcast thougbout the land, thereby
bringing about a state of things unparal
elled iu annals of history, and amounting
almost to a perversion of nature's estab?
lished and most sacred laws. However,
it is said "the hair of the dog is good for
the bite," and as the oolored man, ander
evil influences, has been instrumental in
bringing about this nu natural and most
deplorable state of affairs, why may not
he, with proper management, be made
tho mighty agent by and through which
our distracted country may bb wrested
from a state of chaos, and again restored
to peace and order? For one, I am
among the hopeful and most sanguine of
If Democrats would bo true Democrats,
and white men would only bo while men,
maintaining that superior status to which
nature and nature's God have assigned
thom, our task would be comparatively
un easy and not an unpleasant one. But
tho abominable aod most outrageous
practico of white mea who call themselves
Democrats, stooping and pandering to the
negro aud radical party for the emolu?
ments of office, is a grand stumbling
block, and the most dangerous rook to
which tho old ship of Democracy is now
exposed. Tho negro, in law and poli?
tics, must bo admitted as the equal of
tho white man, leaving social relations to
adjust themselves, ile must not bo ad?
mitted to oiiice, simply uecuuno uo ia a
negro, bat because ho is qualified and
competent to fill tho same; nor must he
bo excluded on account of color, but only
for unfitness and disqualification.

Mr. J. D. Pope read the suggestions
of the relators, who stated that on or
about tho first of March, n certain Act
to revise, simplify and abridge the rules
of practice, pleadings aud forms of the
Courts of this State, was passed by the
General Assembly aud was duly ratified
and signed by tho Speaker of the HOUSE
and President of the Senate, and ap?
proved by Robert K. Scott, Governor ol
South Carolina; and tb nt said Act wai
duly deposited with F. L. Cardozo, Sec?
retary of State, to bo depotdted among
the State archives. That ono of the sec
tious of the said Aot, as deposited witt
bim, provided that, the "Court of Gen?
eral Sessions, at Barnwell, for the County
of Barnwell, on the second Monday o
April, August, und December, aud tlx
Court of Commou Pleas on tho firs
Thursday after tho second Monday o:
April, August, and December." That ex
tracts of said Act, as ratified, were fur
uished to His Houor Judge Platt, Judg<
of said Circuit, aud was examined b^
several persons who wero interested ii
the Courts That some time after. Hon
A. P. Aldrich called at the Secretary o
State's office, and, npon examiuatiou o
the Act, found that the Section relatinj
to the sittings of the Courts for Barn
well County had been chauged by tb
erasure of the word "Barnwell" and in
8ertiug "Blackville." That said Aldric!
applied for a certified copy of that Sec
tiou relating to the holding of the sai
Courts, and as it was signed and ratified
and approved and fugued by the Govei
nor, and also a copy of the erasures au
alterations that bud been made in Se<
tiou 10, Section 3 and paragraph third
since said Act had been filed in the o:
fice of said Secretary of State, but wa
told that Le could only get a copy of th
Act os it now appeared iu the ellice.
The respondent, F. L. Cardozc
through his counsel, Messrs. Meltoi
Carrol and Chamberlain, submitted hi
return, of which we give an abstrae
That, according to a concurrent r?solu
tion of the General Assembly, passed e
their last session, the respondent, as Se<
retary of Slate, was authorized to en
ploy tho necessory clerks for cnrollin
the bills and engrossing the Acts of th
General Assembly, and the duty of sn pei
vising the work was thereby devolve
upon this respondent. That said Ac
was very long, and had to be divide
among several clerks in order to get i
through in time to have it ratified befot
tho adjournment of the General Assen)
bly. lu making this enrolled copy froi
the original Act, with its several ameuc
men ts, occurred tho word "Barnwell
instead of the worn "Blackville," in tb
third paragraph of tho 10th Sectior
title 3, Section 1 of said Act; and in th
form the said enrolled copy was ratifie
and approved. Whether that error a?
the result of accident or procured by <h
sign, this respondent cannot undertuh
to say. It escaped his attention, as als
the Committee on Enrolled Acts in tb
Senate, by whom it was reported for rat
fication. It is true that copies of sai
Section had been given to severul pe
sons who were interested, aud it was iu
until two weeks after the adjournment (
the General Assambly, and after rmi
copies had been given ont from the o
lice, t hat respondent's attention was calle
to the error; that the error occurred froi
a disagreement which existed for som
time ir] regard to the place for holdin
the Courts in said County, and it was u<
until a lute day that tho two hous<
agreed upon Blackville as the place, an
respondent had been directed to Inn
tho same for ratification. Knowing
therefore, that the word "Barnwell" o
tho enrolled copy, instead of tho wor
"Blackville," was a clerical error, un
that the Act, as thus enrolled, was not i
conformity with the Act as it lind passe
the General Assembly, and as it had bee
ordered to bo enrolled, this responder,
issn med the responsibility of correct! n
tho error in tho enrolled copy, by erasin
therefrom tho word "Barnwell" and ii
}. rting tho word "Blackville," ns it ni
peared in tho Act itself, ?CO., &c.

"or tho relators iu a speech of grot
length and of much force, and was fo

ROSKOO.-The Norfolk Da?y Journal, of
December ll, 1869, says:
"This medicino is rapidly gaining confi?
dence of tho people, and the numerous testi?
monials of its virtues, given by practitioners of
medicine, leaves no doubt that it is a safa and
reliable remedy for IMT-UBITY OF THE BLOOD,
LIVEn DISEASE, &C."
Tho la-t Me Heal Journal contains an arti?
cle irom Prof. R. S. Newton, M. D., President
of tho E Medi-Collego, city of New York, that
speaks in high terms of its curative proper?
ties, and gives a special recommendation of
Koskoo to tho practitioners of medicine.
This is, we behove, the first instance where
such medicines havo been officially endorsed
by tho Faculty of any of tho Medical Collegee,
and rctleeis great credit upon thc skill of Dr
Lawrence, ita compounder, and also puts
"Koskoo" in tho VAN of all other medicines
of the present day. F2G
A FEMALE RECULATOR.-Woman and her
nooda. For complaints and irregularities to
which her sex is exclusively liable, HEINITSH'B
QUEEN'S DELIOHT is recommended on the au?
thority of wives, mothers and nurses, who have
tested its tonio and regulating properties, and
' know whereof thoy speak;" and also with the
sanction of ablo physicians, who have admi?
nistered the QUEEN'S DELIOUT to their female
patients, in obstinate cases, with the happiest
results. Almost all female complaints aro
complicated with mental gloom and despon?
dency, tho gent?o and lanting exhilarating
effects of tho QUEEN'S DELIOUT is admirably
adapted to such cases. As a remedy for hys?
teria and mcutal depression, it has no equal
in the world. N arcing mothers find it an ad?
mirable iuvigorant. It is highly satisfactory
that this preparation should prove so emi?
nently bcne.icittl to t ho sex. Young and old
will find relief always. For salo by FISHER &,
