Tuesday Morning, Jane 14, 1870.
Tho Reform Movement-lt? Cause--It?
Character-Its Object-Thc Question
of a Nomination.
Wo propose, this morning, n review
and an analysis of the movemout for re?
form now on foot in this State. We
shall deal with tho Bubject fairly and
soberly, and thus moke our case before a
candid public. We hold that the move?
ment for reform bas its origin in the
popular appreciation of the corruptions,
frauds and misrule connected with the
present regime. In the first place, the
Chief Executive of the State has failed
to discharge, with proper spirit and im?
partiality, the duties of his high ofiico.
His financial self-aggrandizement bas
been inconsistent with the high tone that
the Exeoutivo should illustrate. To in?
vest largely in the bonds and stocks of
the State, when they could be bought
for a small amonnt on tho dollar, end
then, by legislation of bis recommend?
ing, to appreciate these securities, is con?
duct utterly at variance with the true
ethics of a Governor of a State. If it
ia claimed by tho Governor's partisane
that a public good bas been done by the
appreciation of the State securities from
twenty to thirty cents on the dollar to
eighty or ninety, it would have been
well could they have added thnt this
was disinterested financiering on the
part of tbe Executive. Wo aro aware
that some latter-day moralists hold that
Gov. Scott had as mucb right as any
private broker to speculate ou tho secu?
rities of tho State. We are aware that
these same moralists contend that thc
Governor was only smart, and not cen?
surable. But not so do we understand
it. Not so did people understand it for?
merly in South Carolina-beforo official
honesty and tone were at a discount. And
we are sure that every high-minded man
willagree with us in the proposition, that
no officer of the State-be ho Treasurer,
Comptroller-General, Governor, or any
other official-has any right to use his
official opportunities in order to make
money for self and friends out of public
securities. This is a gross violation of
official decorum, is a dangorous prece?
dent, and should be held and rebuked as
a gross abuse of office. And we charge
his Excellency with thus abusing and
lowering, and utilizing for self the office
ho bolds, and we p'ace our allegations
upon the basis of statements which, as a
journalist, we have received and do re?
gard as well founded. Again, Gov. Scott
bas been entirely wanting in tho elementa
of impartiality as an Executivo. He
scorns to have forgotten that he is Go?
vernor of the whole people, and, in play?
ing the partisan and demagogue, has
sunk the impartial Chief Magistrate.
Looking to bis appointments, it will be
found that, with few exceptions, thej' are
taken from the class of his partisans,
bowover inefficient, corrupt and igno?
rant. Now no reasonable man wants the
Governor of South Carolina to bo a par?
tial Executive. We would uot have such
on officer a white uian'? Governor or o
black man's Governor; but wo would
have him the fair, true, high-toned, im?
partial Executive of tho whole people,
and thus discharging his high functions,
to promote, by his administration and
influence, the harmony of tho State and
the welfare of all classes of the people.
But such a man Gov. Scott bas not been,
and we charge him with this deficiency.
We arraign him for his partisanship.
But this is not all. Wo bold Gov. Scotl
responsible for an inflammatory vak. It
a timo of profound peace, when gooc
men wero seeking to secure public har
niODy, Gov. Scott delivers himself of ?
violent harangue in Washington, in
dulges in imperial talk, and proclaim!
that be-tho Governor of South Caro
lina-deems the Winchester rijle (he bes
law. Is it strange-is it unreasonable
that good men have come to tho conclu
sion that a reform is demanded in thii
quarter? But look at the acts imputed tc
other State officers-look to the Sampsoi
matter-to the Land Commissioner swin
dlo-and consider if there be uot a nc
cossity for reform. And look to the pro
sont Legislative Assembly. Consider tb(
well-known bribery and corruption tba
have taken place in that body, and nindi
South Carolina politics a shame i.ud byo
word abroad. Consider the general ton?
und practice of tho South Curolina of
ficials. See bow South Carolina, bourn
and prostrate, is fastened upon by greed:
rings and dishonest officials, and made ti
bleed, and blood, and bleed. See ho^
tho public funds havo boen shamefully
misused and corruptly squandered. Se
bow the poor aro thus modr poorer, am
the rich richer. Let these things be cou
sidored, and in thom will be found th
absolute necessity, the great need, for
political reform in South Carolina-a re
form that shall put South Carolina oi
risiug ground, anil dispel those noxiou
vapors that now rise from the hot bed
of corruption. Thia, wo know, ia strong
language, but not stronger than the truth
So much for the origin ot this move?
ment for reform. Let us consider next
its charade}'. The movement for reform
uow on foot is neither a D?mocratie move?
ment nor a Rejmblican one-neither n
ichite man's nor a black man's. Tho pro?
position is that all mon-all sober, reflect
iug citizens, whether Democrats, Repub?
licans, white, black, or neither-whethei
of party or of no party-shall lay asidc
all other considerations and views, um!
unito together to relieve the State in its
extremity-shall unitedly seek to rescue
the Stato from the rapacious grasp o?
plundering rings, pilfering officials, anti
corrupt legislators. This is the movo
mont, as we understand it. It cannot be
denied that tho proposition is a fair one.
No honest man can be injured by it. It
ought lo addross itself to every well
wisher of South Carolina. To rho above
party-above tho PREJUDICE OF RACE, in
order to rescuo South Carolina and give
to all an administration honest, fair and
economical, promotive of peace and in?
dustrial development-this surely is n
worthy and a patriotic movement. This
is the object of tho movement. The re?
form movement seeks to inaugurate in
South Carolina an era of genuine peace
and genuine progress. The political
rights of all classes of tho peoplo being
fully and freely recognized, it is proposed
by this movement to atm hero at a cheer?
ful and wholesome self-government, and
at o vigorous and enlightened industrial
This, now, is tho movement-itt
origin, its character, nnd its purpose.
A. Convention will meet here on tho 15th
to put thc movement into execution. It
will be a Convention in which moro than
three-fourths of tho Counties of the
State will be represouted. And as to
tho other Counties, they, doubtless, will
fall into line, and second tho general
purpose. Before this Convention two
great questions will no doubt come tip,
viz: What principles to declare, and
what move to inako in the matter of II
nomination for State officers. As to the
first matter, doubtless tho Convention
will adopt thc liberal propositions em?
braced in the resolutions of the pros*
conference. We hope it will. Let thc
element of opposition to negro suffrage
bo eliminated from our issues. As tt.
tho second matter, we presume there
will be a difference of opinion. On this
subject we have very decided views. A.
a public journalist, whoso duty it is. to
havo opinions and to express thom, and lui
them go for bettor or worse, wo do not
hesitate to put ourselves on tho record
upon this question. We favor unequivo?
cally and decidedly tho putting forth ol
candidates for Governor and Lieutenant
Governor. Without this, it doos seem tc
us that tho Convention takes tho edge
off tho roform weapon-gives us Hatnlel
with Hamlet omitted. If there b(
''something rotten in Denmark," lotus
find it out. Let us put candidates it
the field and bring out all the point*
connected with the administration. Lei
tho canvass bring tho present administra
lion before the tribunal of the public
If it has done no wrong, it will not ob
ject to a scrutiny. Wo repeat it, let th<
(?ASE OF THE PEOPLE bc carried before thi
high court of thc peoplo of tho State
Let the d duration bo filed-let th<
issue be made-let the public ?crvaut?
be arraigned-let tho advocates bo heart
-and let tho matter go before the jurj
of tho Stato. This will do good. I'
always docs good to proclaim the truth
to denounce vice, and error, and crime,
Just as tho lightning, although it ma}
blast lofty and wido-spreadiug oaks,
leaves thc air puro wheu the storm ii
over, so tho language of truth, when ii
is uttered, although it may strike dowt
high individuals, yet promotes tho pub
lie good, and gives us purer morals nut
purer tastes, and the promiso of bcttei
days. Let tho nomination be made, ant
let tho grand inquest bo had. It is dui
to tho people of the State that we call ii
question tho acts and doings of th<
ruling regime. As for ourselves, ns th?
impartial advocate of the popular in
forests, wo ask for "the truth, tho whoh
truth, and nothing Imt the truth." Ii
this matter, we havo no personal feeling!
to gratify, and no party or personal ont
to .subserve. We bear a personal ill
will against no member of the regina
we denounce and arraign. All wo ask is
?IE TRUTH-all wo seek is THE PROSPERITY
AND HONOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA. Alli
we aro perfectly willing, nay, even aux
ious, that only what is right, and just
and true shall prevail in tho principle!
we maintain and tho notion wo advise.

WASHINGTON, D. C., Juno ll, 1870.
Probably, never before at a muuicipa
election in Washington, has there eve?
been snob an interest manifested by th<
people generally, as in tho last, whiol
ended on Monday, by 3,221 majority, ii
the election of Matthew G. Emery, a
Republican, au J known as the wealthy
stone-cutter and the poor man's friend.
Sis opponent, Say les J. Bowen, the pre?
sent incumbent, originally from New
York State, has been a great office-holder
for tho past twenty years, through "Whig,
Democratic and Republican administra?
tions in politics, conforming to each ad?
ministration, in its turn, respectively, as
best suited his pecuniary interests. Evor
watchful to his interests, ho has succeed
od in gotting offices of tho most influen?
tial nud lucrative, and of the greatest
patronage; and, consequently, from n
very poor mau of modest mien, only n
few years ago, he lins grown rich and
over-bearing. I mention this man Bowen
as a fair specimen of many other official
tricksters now holding highly remunera?
tive offices here, to tho exclusion of tin
more worthy. This man Bowen, by se?
venty majority, wns elected, two years
igo, Mayor of Washington, receiving the
majority of the Republican vote and the
support of all the Republican papers.
But his administration soon became very
unpopular, for reason of the reckless and
dishonest manner of conducting tho mu?
nicipal affairs of tho city. Tho Repub?
lican and Star, two of tho three leading
papers of the city, were frank and hono?
rable enough, although against their im?
mediate pecuniary policy, to at once
expose his conduct to the people; and
have steadily and manfully worked until
they have at last defeated him.
The Great Grand Indian Council wan
held yesterday, in tho Iuterior Depart?

that if ho will make a treaty and kee

Quite a sensation was at once cfeatei
when it was rumored last night, that Si
uator Schurz, in executive session, ye
terday, proposed a resolution, directin
the Committee on Foreign B lations 1
invest?galo the truthfulness of a runic
iu circulation that improper influouci
had been used in the San Domingo tre
ty. But few believed that the Misson
Senator would dare to suspicion such
thing. What, says one, reflect inion tl
conduct of the administration, and con
iug from one of Iiis own party? Sn;
I mother, tho President und Senat?
ISohurz ure nt logger-heads, nud this
?only done to shako the coulidence of tl

jto-duy, in open doors, a resolution w
loffered and adopted, appointing a coi
tuittee, none of whoso members belong!
to tho Committee on Foreign Relation
to make a thorough investigation in
their San Domingo matter. This acti(
of the Senate will probably defeat tl
confirmation of the treaty.
Treasurer Spiuucr is sound to tho lu
on tho financial question. In his In
tetter on thc National Bunks aud fun
ing of tho debt, Mr. Spinner brie!
shows that tho only question for Co
grcss to decide is, whether tho Gover
mont shall issue its own notes to tl
unouut of $300,000,000 and save to tl
people tho interest, which, nt four p
cent., would amount to 812,000,000,
lllow tho Banks to have their own eire
luting notes, secured by United Stat
deposits, on which tho Government (t!
peo ??le) is payiug six per cent. Fro
reliable authority, we learn that this G
vern mont can pince four per cent, bon
in Europe for all tho money sho wan!
md thereby reduco our present taxatio
it least, 818,000,000 per annum.

THE DEATH OF WILLIAM GILMOBE
SIMMS.-The Charleston papers brought
to us last ovening tho sad intelligence ol
the death of this eminent South Caro?
linian. On Sunday, it was our task to
announce tho death of Dickens, aud now
wo have to record that n kindred spirit
has "fallen on sleep." To tho reading
public of this country, and especially ol
the South, the news of Mr. Simms' death
will bo received with mournful interest.
Many kuow him iu the social relations ol
life, and moro were conversant with the
man in the productions of his pen. Tho
Nestor of literature in tho South is dead.
A. Carolinian, self-made and distin?
guished iu tho department of history,
romance and poetry, is no moro. And in
him nlso thc Stato has lost a citizen true
aud do voted. Wo know that others will
be found to pay becoming tribute to hin
services and his character. Wo shall do
fer to them this task. Mr. Simms was
the first oditor of tho PHOMIX, aud foi
more than one year ho discharged the
dntieB of this office. Wo unite in the
respect and consideration due to the
memory of this gifted sou of Carolina.
The Charleston Courier says:
Perhaps there was not a single heart
in our city, yesterday, which did ucl
realize with what au opposite beauty, with
what a graceful comeliuess, and how de?
servedly rendered, was tho offering, ns

had beeu more filially true to the ancient
heir-looms, o'er which in sacred guard,
their sonorous chant, lias kept watch ami

of sou for mother, had with moro pious
/.eal, more unremitting dovoteduess,
delved in the rich archives of that
mother's honored past, and made te
glow with the burnish of bis pen, the
wealth and glories of her storied long
Mr. Simms' whole life has been one of
public contribution. Unaided, with
uothiug but his own great endowments,
his own high promptings, self-educated
iud self-reliant, he has wrought out n
name for himself, in history, puetry,
imaginative literature, criticism, and the
broad realm of letters, which, while it
rears for him n mouumeut enviable and
enduring, reflects its lustre upon thc
city and State, of whoso treasured re?
cords he was at once the cxpouuderand
-idornor. Without any of thoso im?
portant aids which spring from wealth,
family couuectiou, and thoso auxiliaries
which, though adventitious, are yet so
potent, Mr. Simms qualified hiniseU
thoroughly for his work, nud with his
own right nrm unsealed tho oracles, con?
served with more than Delphine hedgo
proving and earning his title in tho great
temple of intellect, ns prophet, uud
priest and master.
At 5 o'clock on Saturday afternoon,
llth instant, Mr. Simms closed hi.*

his sixty-fourth year. Our departed
friend's relations with tho Courier, cause
Shis death to como to us with all the sen?
sibility of a personal nfilictiou. Over n
period reaching through a long vista of
years, this journal has boen a vehicle
through which nlinost uninterruptedly,
he has held converse high, with our
readers, and the people whom he loved.
In tho fullness and freshness of our
grief, we feel how inadequate must be?
any tributo weean render to our departed
friend! We desire only to comniiugle
our sorrows, and to tharo in the sympa?

.State, wo feel, will outpour themselves,

jibe West Point Board-Hollornu because

furthermore advised by tho Republican
Board not to study, or ho would become

says that the candidato never before
knew that ho was so near tho blind asy?

tho war, this boy had beeu of an ago to

TIIK DEATH OF PLEASANT GOODE.-This

Pleasant Goode, ne was the serving
man and friend of General Maxcy Gregg.
He was attached to him in life, und re?
mained true to Genoral G.'s memory aftei
death. Tho most conspicuous clements
in Pleasant's character were his personal
integrity, his firmness, and his fidelity.
In tho political divisions that arose iu
this State, Pleasant Goode deemed it his
duty to repose confidence in the native
whites of South Carolina, and to cast in
his lot with theirs. He was "a Demo?
crat" in his party relations, and bo con?
tinued SD to tho end. He never turned
his back upon either his principles or
his associates. Nor was he unfaithful to
his own race, nis idea was that thc-j
whites of South Carolina would do his
race justice, and he had faith in tho peo
plo with whom be bad been reared and
with whom ho was to live. Ho hod to
bear much odium and vituperation, but
lie stood up bravely for his views, aud an
