Thursday Morning, June 9, 1870.
We havo received reports of public
meetingsNewberry, Spartanburg and

vention-white and colored. We ob?

PUBLIO MEETING IN FAIRFIELD.-We
learn from tho News that a meeting was
held at the Court House, on Monday
last. The object was to appoint dele?
gates to the June Convention, or, as Mr.
W. B. Bob or ts on said on the occasion,
to seoure an honest administration of the
State Government and to save tho State
from the financial ruin imminent, It
was stated that the dolegatcs would be
untrammeled in their action. Tho Xe ir s
Col. Bi on addressed tho meeting, re?
commending that those who opposed tho
present dishonest administration, should
aot in future as a balance of power, not
nominate candidates of their own, bnt
should, in all cases of division among
our opponents, take the least of two
evils, that is, the candidate who may bo
the more honest of the two.
Col. Davis moved that when this meet?
ing adjourn, that the citizens of Fairfield
meet on the first Monday in July, to re?
ceive the report of the delegates.
The delegates nominated by tho Com?
mittee, were J. B. McCants, Col. David
Provinoe, Thomas Jordnn, Abram F.
Lumpkin, Alfred Mooro, Dr. Samuel
Anderson, Johu O. Crosby and Sandy
Ford, who wero confirmed by the meet?
By motion of Col. Rion, tho chairman
of the delegates was instructed to defray
nil necessary expenses of tho eutiro dele?
gation, the amount of which would bc
. refunded to him by the meeting.
Policy lind Principle.
As tho Charleston News has requested
a definition of certain principles laid
down by the Constitutionalist, we shall
briefly respond. Wo bclievo that, ac?
cording to Democratic principle, tho
people of each State should bo left to
manage their own matters ns they please,
without any interference from outsiders.
Now, what tho Constitutionalist has said
on the subject of South Carolina politics,
was not from a desire to interfere with
their internal policy. It referred alone
to the action of the peoplo of that Stnto
upon public principles-great constitu?
tional prinoiple3 which affect nil tho
States. The Constitutionalist hos no ob?
jection to the peoplo of South Carolina,
or the D?mocratie party of that State,
organizing upon a platform giving to all
races and colors perfect equality, if they
choose. It is their right to do It, if they
think proper. But the Constitutionalist
does urge upon all true friends of con?
stitutional liberty iu that State not to
adopt such a course because of the so
called constitutional amendment*. They
should denounce these amendments as
nothing but gross usurpatious, invalid
and void, just as Mr. Jefferson de?
nounced tho Alien aud Sedition Laws in
1798; just as Kentucky and Virginia de?
nounced them, and rallied the whole
eountry to drivo from power the usurpers
who had passed them. If Jefferson nnd
his compatriots of that day had received
these bold usurpations ns "fixed facts,"
our liberties would havo perished long
- ago. All that thc Constitutionalist insists
upon is that tho true men of thc country,
North and South, shall never surrender,
of their own volition, tho right to regu?
late suffrage and ollico as they please,
and as they think best for their respec?
tive States; and never receive ns "Jived
facts'" the usurpatious of Congress upon
these subjects. If tho peoplo of South
Carolina think it best for tho interests of
their State to adopt the programme sug?
gested by the News, let them do it. It
is their right to do it. Bid it is not their
right lo lend (heir influence and throw (ha
weight of (heir power in sustaining these
usurpations by holding thal they ari: valid.
Bather should they hold them up lo
infamy, aud politically ally therr>?olves
with that party throughout tue country
which does so denounce them.
We proposo to make ri manly light,
whether tho more thiug called "present
success" attends our effort or not. It is
better to bo a martyr in the right thuu a
victor in tho wrong. But even upon the
miserable principio of eui bono, this is
the host. Tho motive with most trim?
mers nnd time-servers in politics-we
speak impersonally-is a distinction or
fame which they foolishly suppose money
and office will secure. Thia delusion
impels hundreds and thousands in their
departure from what they know to be
the truo course. Tho truth is, nil real
distinction, all .substantial fame must rest
upon principle. Money nany give posi?
tion and notoriety, but, wlieu achieved
by tho betrayal of principle, those are
worthless and uncomfortable boons. All
trimmers in politics, even when success?
ful and with brilliant genius to back
them, hold a contemptible place in tho
just estimation of the world. This is
tho best that can bo said of the most
prosperous of them. But tho great ma?
jority utterly fail in their baseness and
como to nn cud ns ignominious ns that
of their prototype. So, ovou upon the
eui bono principle, honesty is thc best
policy, if weary, disheartened, desperate
p.nd misguided peoplo could only com?
prehend it.-Augusta Constitutionalist.
DIED OF NEGLECT.-Tho jury empa?
nelled to hold au inquest on tho body
of Nat. Cummins, a colored boy, who
died suddenly nt M. Clarke's farm, about
sovon miles from Charleston, found that
tho deceased had como to his death from
noglect and lack of medical attendance.

COLUMBIA, S. C., June 7, 1S70.
7b Hon. John Alexander, Mayor of thc
city of Columbia.
Sin: At the request of Mr. Hamberg,
I personally inspected a lot in the city,
claimed by him as his property, formerly
belonging to the estate of John J. Kins
ler, deceased, containing three and-a
half acres, bounded on tho North by
Gervais street, commonly called Bridge
street; ou tho South by Senate street; on
the East by Wayne street, and on the
West by Pulaski street, which, however,
at this time, at that point, seems to be
appropriated as private property. Dia?
gonally through this lot, a road leading
to tho ferry hos been since tho burning
of tho bridge, which injures tho proper?
ty very materially. Mr. Hamberg, there?
fore, desires to enolose his lot and thereby
protect his property and his title to it,
but thought it best to signify his inten?
tion to tho City Council before he fenc?
As tho city sets up no claim whatever
to the lot, I undertook to say to bim
that it would not do or say anything on
the subject, leaving him to act as ho
chose, lt is for your honorable body,
however, to pursue any course which
may be thought expedient. If Mr. Ham
berg fences in his lot, then it. will be in?
cumbent on the city to do some little
work on the street which intersects with
Gervais street, just below his lot, iu order
to make access to tho ferry easy. 1 have
the honor tobo, very respectful Iv, yours,

Alderman Thompson moved that th
further consideration of tho petition L
Alderman Wallace said that bis uttct
tion had been called to the fact that sui
terfuges had been resorted to by eertai
merchants, in order to evade tho ord
nance, by representing that they weig
cotton only for tba satisfaction of tl)
seller, in order to make advances, au
that settlement is made upon return (
proper weights from Charleston. H
deemed this a violation ol* the ordiuanci
and if thoy aro violating the law, thc
should be punished. He thought tl:
question should bo settled, and hope
that any parly found weighing cotlu
limier such circumstances should, ti
gather with his clerk and the seller, 1
brought before his Honor the Mayor, am
under oath, give a satisfactory explain
lion. Ho said ho knew that some partit
had boasted that thej' intended to dodj
the law in tho manner alluded to.
Alderman Taylor said he fully endorse
all that bad boen said by Alderman Wu
lace, and he would go further, and sa;
that aa soou ns tho cotton buyer weight
cotton here, even though for tho sati
faction of the seller, he became litibl
under tho ordiunnco, aud the ordiunui
should bo strictly enforced.
His Honor tho Mayor said a few casi
ol' tho character alluded to bad bet
brought to his notice, und he hoja
Council would fully discuss tho subjoc
and act upon it.
Alderman Wigg hoped a case would 1
made as soon as possible. Let theMttyi
line to the extent prescribed in tho ort'
nance, and as tho Circuit Court is in so
sion, tho matter could be tried and de
nitoly settled. Ile would suggest, if tl
regularly elected cotton weighers a
kept o it of their fees by this eombin
lion of merchants, that they be paid
Alderman Denny said he could n
agree with tho suggestion of Aldermi
Wigg, as it would bo precisely what tl
cotton buyers desire.
The question being taken on tho m
tion to indefinitely postpono tho consi
eration of the petition, it was agreed t
Alderman Thompson introduced t

HEARTS.-The equality of color is mak?
ing rapid progress in this town. Last
night, two negroes, dark as the nco ol
spades, occupied conspicuous seats in
tito National Theatre, enjoy ing thc Lng-.
lish opera. The night preceding, an of- 1
ticer of the House of Representatives
created au immense sensation by appear
iog at the same theatre with two dashing
and elegautly dressed colored ladies. He
bore his honors manfully aud meekly,
paying uo attention whatever to the cu?
rious looks directed towards him by his j
white brethren. Some very excited
white folks went to tho manager of the I
theatre to protest against the "outrage,"
ns they called it, and to suggest tho pro?
priety of putting tho colored gals and
their white escort out of the theatre.
The manager declared ho couidu't do ir
short of a tiue of $500, which he did uot
propose to incur this season.
