Wednesday Morning, June 8,1870.
The Movement for Reform.
In undertaking to seonro a reform in
our State government it must not be
overlooked, that there are many who do
not desire a reform. There are a num?
ber of persons-some white, somo black,
some from abroad, some, nias, from our
own midst-who do not want any other
kind of government than tho one we have
bad. These porsous flourish in corrupt
times, jost as some noxious weeds live
only in nn infected atmosphere. RE?
FORM, RETRENCHMENT and HONESTY WOUld
be their death. To kill CORRUPTION
would bo to kill the goose that lays for
them the golden egg. This eines will, of
oonrse, oppose any reform, nod mark
thom well, for they nie the foes to good
government, to public morality, to pri?
mate honor, to tho interests of the great
mass of the people. There are other
foes to reform. There is the open foe
-the honest Republican partisan-who
-either does not believo in the frauds
charged upon bis party leaders, or thinks
that any other set of men would steal
quite as much, and, therefore, ho does
not care to make a change. With this ;
class it is possible to argue, and let us
reason with them. But the chief foes to
the reform movement are GENERAL
APATHY, (white,) and GENERAL DISTRUST,
(colored.) As to this general apathy, we
regard it natural, under the circumstun
ces, but neither wise nor patriotic. This
apathy, iu our judgment, proceeds, in
part, from the character of the move?
ment for reform, and in part from the
general disgust that our white fellow
oitizens feel for the subject of politics
so unprepossessing has the business got
to be in this State. We have said that
this feeling is natural. But let us add,
that it cannot be safely indulged. Poli?
tics is business. It largely concerns UP.
In view of the duty we owe to ourselves,
our families, and our State, we cannot
properly divest ourselves of our respon?
sibility for the management of our pub?
lic affairs. And we affirm that it is the
bounden duty of every good and sober
citizen to strike now, and to strike always,
blows political, as well as blows industrial,
for South Carolina. If wo would im?
prove ibo prospect of tho Stale, it is
plain that a movement for reform is a
high duty. We have also to deal with
tho general distrust of tho colored voter
towards us. Wo do not know that this
can bo remedied. But if wo state plainly
what our disposition and onr sentiments
aro towards him, and his political status,
it may bo that confidence may bo re?
stored between tho two races iu the South.
Wo have nothing more to say or to do in
this behalf. Oar sentiments toward tho
colored mau ever have beon liberal and
kindly. Wo acknowledge now, freely
and cheerfully, the rights secured to him
by law, and we are ready to deal with
him as a man whoso citizenship should
be improved, and whoso services should
be utilized for tho general good. But
we have no special appeal to make to him
now or evermore We do not consider
that the destinies of our race depend
upon him. If ho can do without the
native whites of the South, wo aro sure
that tho nativo Southerners and the
adopted whites of the South can do
without him. Let him mako his elec?
tion, and then ho will be responsible for
his future. We desire earnestly to see
both races in tho South living in har?
mony and ponce. But, our moderation
having been known of all men. thus fur
have we gouo, and wo expect to go no
further in tenders of amity and propo?
sitions of political union.
There is, also, another bur to tho re?
form movement, not hitherto mentioned,
and this is what we call a spirit of CAL?
CULATION. We mean this: It seems that
in our cities, towns and villages, there is
a class of persons who, for fear of their
business being injured, are indisposed
to show their bauds in political move?
ments. They prefer to curry favor with
both sides, and therefore the}' ard ready
to blow both cold and hot. These men,
it seems lo us, make a great mistake. If
thcro is one class in the community more
than others interested in a reform of our
public affairs, it is the largo class of mer?
chants and traders. Aud wo feel sure
that the intelligent members of this class
know this as well as wc do. It has, in- 1
doed, como to a sad pass, when men aro
ready to forego, or to deny, their princi?
ples, for tho sake of making money.
And yot that there are saeh, who, with
powers of observation, can doubt? Now
thia wo may suggest-this is a matter
that should not be suffered to go by de?
As a genoial rale wo prefer to indulge
in no discriminative policy, and wo do
not desire to recommend such a line of
action. But wo aro free to say that our
duty is obvious. It' mon in business aro
t i 'ie patronized because of their party j
relations, then let us understand it. If
the radical adherents of this corrupt re?
gime, nov upon us, are going to build
up thia or that man in business, then
does it become the duty of our people to
accept tho issue, and let the country
know who aro for the interests of good
government and who are on the other
side. If any mau iu business hero, or
elsewhere, iu this State, stands up like a
niau for tho right, let the people seo to it
that he is sustained. Under which king,
Benzoui? If this is tho question that
Radicalism puts, let its opponents meet
tho issue iu tho spirit of self-defence.
As for ourselves, thc moilo of reform
that is now ou the (apis is no favorite of
ours. We would havo sought reform in
another way-would perhaps have put
I06S water in our political brandy. But
we do want reform iu some way-some
fair, honorable, legal way-aud whatever
form of action may be adopted, let it be
pressed with energy. Let us rally, let us
-(ni/e, let us work, let us expone, let us dis?
sect, let us attack, and with resolute spirit,
plaut tho banner of BEFORM in the very
citadels of tho PLUNDERERS and the BOH?
RERS. Theso are our views, and let them
go for what they are worth.
THE DEBASEMENT OF SOUTHERN POLI?
TICS.-With tho re-olection of Whittc
moro, tho cadetsbip trader, to Congress
before us, tho special correspondent of
the Now York Tribune, who in this case
will certainly be acknowledged good
authority, writing from Charleston,
gives the following in relation to the rul?
ing power iu South Carolina politics:
"There is an unpleasantly large clnss
of politicians who live only by politics,
who know no other profession, and who
look upon the legitimate and thc illegiti?
mate emoluments of the trade with
equally favorable eyes. Wheu to theso
we add an infusion in tho Legislature of
mon chosen as the most eligible iu a
community of held hands who never saw
n school house and never owned a five
dollar bill, it is easily to he seen that
dangers beset the public affairs of South
The above is a fair resume of thc po?
litical situation throughout tho entire
South, and it is quito as true of every
other State as it is of South Carolina.
VIOLATION OF THE FIFTEENTH AMEND?

and no preparations hud been made to

colored restaurateur of thc Capitol, is
highly incensed at this ?light to his r:u:e,
