Wednesday Morning:, Juno 22,1870.
Tho Morality of Patton Cain.
It cannot be denied that the "Parson"
has an eye ever to the main chance. We
have recently seen a speoimen of his mo
rede. Ho is advising his colored friends
how to receive money for their votes-in
case it ?honid be tendered. He says
this preacher of a Gospel of infinite
TBUTH and PUBITX-"If they offer you
money, take it, and vote against them
every time. " This is OoDgo Ethics-this
is Ashantee Morality, we presume.
Addreaa by General Hampton.
As several material errors ooourred in
the published address of Gen. Hampton,
_ou laying the corner-stone to tho memory
. of the members of the Washington Light
infantry, in Magnolia Cemetery, Charles?
ton, we republish it this morning, ns
?orrocted by the General:
?Colonel Simonton introduced General
'Wade Hampton, the orator of the occa?
sion, who was received with applause.
The General, addressing the President
and gentlemen of the Washington Light
.Infantry Charitable Aesooiation, said:
in accepting the position assigned to
me by your kindness, in the solemn cere?
monies of the day, many and conflicting
emotions stirred my heart. On the ono
hand, said he, a painful oonsoiousness of
.-my inability to discharge the task im?
posed ia a manner worthy of tho occa?
sion, oppresses me and bids mo keep
eilent; white on the other hand, a sense
of duty to my living, as well as my dead
(Comrades, impels me to join in this de?
monstration of honor to those who aro
sleeping beneath the soil they gave their
lives to defend. Let me, then, pisco on
their tomb a votive offering, which, un?
worthy as it m,ay be of our noble dead,
has.at least the merit pf coming from a
Jaearb filled with sympathy for the cause
in which they fell; admiration for their
flevoted patriotism and heroic courage;
respect and affection for their memory,
And profound grief for their untimely
.death. There are other motives, scarce?
ly less-potent, why my voioe should not
?be silent on any occasion where honor is
paid to the living' or dead of the Wash?
ington Light Infantry.
. Have you forgotten, comrades, of that
gallant corpa? I shall always remember
it with pride, that when our State called
her sons to defend her, and that com?
mand was organized-whose glorious
banner, unsullied by any stain of defeat,
.untarnished by any breath of dishonor,
was borne so heroically through the
storm of nearly every great historio bat?
tle of the war-it was the Washington
Light Infantry that gave me tho first
company of the Hampton Legion. Car
you suppose that I have forgotten thc
men ot "Company A?" that company
which for four years of heroio thougt
.unequal war, stood always unshaken OE
the right of the Legion? Can I forgel
that devoted friend, that unselfish pa
trio t, that gallant soldier, that no bio gen
tleman, Johnson, who was your first ant'
one of your costliest sacrifices laid 01
tho altar of our country? Cau I forgel
the gifted Pettigrew, who lived lon;
enough to achieve an undying glory foi
himself, but who died too soon for hi;
mourning country? Standing over th?
:graves which hold the hallowed dust o
so many patriotic soldiers, looking upoi
yonder tomb, where aro inscribed tin
names of forty-five of my loved ant
?trusted comrades of that single company
whioh you gave me, how can I forgot tin
men who fought and died by my side
Gan I, turning from the lameuted deac
to the honored living, looking once agaii
upon the familiar faces of the men whon
danger taught mo to trust-forget th
friends who never betrayed that trust
Can I look upon Connor, as he lean
upon those crutohes, which tell proudb
how nobly he discharged his duty, nm
then forget the Washington Light Tn
fantry? Oh, nol my friends. Memo
rios and associations such as these, ar
amongst the most cherished though sad
?lent of my heart, and tboy bind mo t
my old comrades by ties which dent]
may, but nothing else, can over sevei
They remind me, too, of my duties t
the dead, and amongst them thero i
?tone more sacred than that which call
upon me to vindicate their motives, t
praise their patriotism, to commend thei
example, and to protect their memory
These are the duties whioh devolve upo
us, the sad survivors of that gallant bau
who, at the call of their Stato, rallied t
her defence. Mourning over tho grave
of "our slain," who, "for faith and fo
.freedom, lay slaughtered in vain;" stant
ing amid the wreck of our dearest hope:
looking at the ruin of our country, wi
ueBsing the steady but rapid overthro
of Republicau institutions and constiti
tional liberty, what is left to cheer us t
future exertion but the hallowed meint
ries of the past-that past which wi
made glorious by our groat dead. Ami
that nobie and, alas, vast throng, nor
have done higher honor to their Stab
none deserve deeper gratitude, than tL
men who died in her causo. Not unt
death has placed his etornal seal upc
tho living, and stamped with his irrovi
cable decree all the actions of the
being, can they bo truly estimated. TL
judgment we pass upon our contcmpi
raries ia too ofton warped by onvy, je
lousy, peraoual dislike, or political pr
judie?; and it is not until death h
closed their career hore that we can r
cognize thc greatness of their actions, <
tho integrity of their purposes. Tl
men to whom you dedicate this mon
mont as a testimonial of your respoc
gratitude and affection, have passed tl
last droad ordeal, and we deem tho
worthy to bo enshrinod in a pooph
heart, and to receive the grateful plau
its of a people's voice
I f . A. people's .voicer W* are ? people yet, \
Thc? ?ll men olae their nobler dreams forset;
Confused by brainiest- mobs and lawless
Wo have a voice with which to pay the debt
Of boundless love and reverence and regret
To tnoss great men who fought and kept it
They fought to vindicate the great
truths enunciated in '76, and to defend
their inalienable rights established by
our fathers, and bequeathed to ns as our
noblest heritage. For these they fought
in vain; and of all the attributes of free?
dom, there is left to us only a people's
voice, which, though stifled, calls Hea?
ven to witness that we wore sincere and
honest in tho convictions which prompt?
ed our actions, which still asserts our
unshaken faith in the justice of our cause,
and which, rising from ovory heart in
our desolate land, utters lamentations
for the preoions blood that was so lavish?
ly but so vainly shed in our country's
canse. We, my friends, who were the
actors in that mighty drama which for
four years filled the world's stage, may
not be competent to pronounce an im?
partial judgment as to the justice of that
causo. Time, with its soothing influ
enoo, must elapse, and the passions en?
gendered by the war must cool, before
tho record can be fully made up for his?
tory to pronounce her final verdict.
Believing that Truth, Bight and Justice
were on our side, we submit our case,
without one doubt, to the impartial
judgment of posterity, reserving to our?
selves the right of appeal to the Great
Tribunal above, where tho Supreme
Judgo of tho Universe, who reads our
hearts, will pronounce that decreo which
will, through all eternity, justify or oon
demn us. We know that the men whose
names aro written on that marble, be?
lieved, as firmly as they did in tho exist?
ence of a God, in the justice of the cause
for which they died; wo know that they
sacrificed peace, comfort, life, to encoun?
ter war, privation, death, at tho call und
tho service of their State; and knowing
this, wo placo thom high on the roll of
thoso patriotic and heroic dead who
make np the great army of martyrs of
Liberty. Nor should their memory be
less dear to ns, or less honored, because
they fell in a oause which God, in Hie
providence, hos seen fit to let fail. The
heathen may deify the conquering hero,
while he condemns those who fail, tc
exile, chains or death, for with him,
succoss is the only criterion of merit,
but not so tho Christian. Bight, truth,
justico contribute the standard by whiot
ho measures all things. Tho test he ap
?dios to the actions of men, is the law
which God Himself has made. By thu
law, wo can distinguish tho lines whicl
divide right from wrong, ns readily nt
we eau recognize those which separat?
light from darkness. We kuow that it
the economy of God, evil is often per
mitted to prevail over good on this earth
We soe virtue trampled into dust by vice
We see liberty prostrate at the feet o
tyranny. We see religion superseded Iv
fanaticism. Intolligouco, virtue, putri
otism thrust aside, while ignorance, vic
and selfishness usurp the high places o
tho earth. These are the apparent auo
malies which strike ns, when we conside
the Almighty government of this world
But when guided by the light of revela
tion, we look moro closely iuto the
wondrous system, and comprehend mor
fully the scheme of that faith, whic
springing from Calvary, is lighting wit
its sublimo truths every corner of th
earth, we can reconcile tho diflicultie
which stand in our way. That religior
taught by the Saviour, whioh wo profess
nowhere promises that we shall be r<
warded in this world for well doing. 1
does not promise that virtue shall hoi
triumph, while vice is punished; it doe
not promise that tho oause of liberty
sustained though it may bo by trutl
courage, patriotism, will necessarily BU?
cecd wheu it has to contend with uni
censed power, directed by ambitioi
hatred and fear. No such promises ai
held out by the Divine Founder of ot
religion to his followors. On the coi
trary, they aro explicitly told that o
this earth they are to look for triuls, di
appointments and afflictions; that the
will often soe the powers of darknei
holding high carnival of crime, whei
they hoped to eeo virtue exercising h<
benign and peaceful sway; that it dot
not como within the scope of the Chri
t inn religion to punish evil and to re wai
the good in this world, and that nt
until the last trump shall summon tl
quick and tho dead to judgment, will tl
great Judge reotify all the wrong
punish all the crimes and reward all tl
virtues whioh have excited her sinoo tl
foundation of the earth. It is this sa'
limo faith that sustains the Christi!
patriot as he struggles to bear his ov
afflictions, or mourns over his country
loss of liberty; for he knows that if 1
has discharged his duty to his God ai
to his country, he will sooner or lat
surely reap an exceeding great reward
Let us, then, my friends aud comrade
sling with unrelaxing grasp and unshaki
sonfidenco to the faith that is in us. L
not tho angry threats of oppression
the ayron voice of temptation drivo
illaro us to forsake it. Above all, !
oot misled by that unmeaning jarg<
which tells you that your cause was su
mitted to tho arbitrament of arms, ai
that tho sword has decided that eau
igainst you. Tho sword has novor, u
will it over, decido a principle or est
blish a truth. It can, as it has oft
lone, overthrow a just causo and ma
might tako the placo of right; but it c
never reverso tho immutable laws
Clod, and mako what is ovil nppoar rig
in His sight. A noblo oause, upheld 1
roioally by honor, courage and patrii
ism, may dio along with its supporte
A great truth never dies; bnt eternal
tho God-head from which it springs,
lives forever, amid all the changes of c'
nasties, the wreck of empires, and t
death ot nations. It is, too, as false
fact as in logic, to assert that tho swe
nan or does deoide justly between rig
?nd wrong. With the sword, tho Gol
and Vandals drenched the fair fields
Italy with tho best blood of her soi
-. -?. ?rA-'
It gave nearly half tho world to Maho?
met. It allowed the Torfe* . to trample
oat the civilization of Greoou. Its keen
edgo has'diamomborod Poland. Ii ha?
loft Hnrrgary blooding at the feet of the
oppressors. ? , It has tamed over Spain
and Porto gn to the tender ra ero i es of
the Saracen,land on this continent and
in oar day, directed by unscrupulous
power against the throats of prostrate
States, reeking with fratricidal blood, it
enforces tho laws whioh it alone has
made. Tell me not, then, that tho sword
caa rightfully turn the scales of justice.
It is the exponent of tyranny, not the
arbitrator of truth-the badge of the
tyrant and tho exocutiouor, not tho sym?
bol of justice. It is not nt all inconsist?
ent with theso views that we. as a con?
quered people, should observe scrupu?
lously tho terms dictated by the sword
and accepted by us. We cnn do this,
and should do it, in perfect good faith;
but we should claim and esorciso the
God-given right of freedom of opinion.
We acknowledge that the cause for
whieh those meu died is lost, but wo
should be falso to them, false to that
cause, wore wo to admit that they were,
because of failure, necessarily wrong.
We believe that they were right, and wo
therefore honor and respect their memo?
ry. If they wore right, time will vindi?
cate tho action and record their fame. If
"It was a griovous fault,
And grievously have they answered it."
We, comrades of the Washington Light
Infantry, wo who gave our all to the
Hinno cause in whioh our brothers fell,
can entertain no doubt as to the place
which will be accorded them by history.
Stigmatized now as rebels, posterity will,
we hopo and believe, give to them the
more appropriate name of patriots. Be?
lieving this, we fear not to accept from
tho conqueror tho epithet of rebel. Our
ancestors had once tho same term applied
to them, and I accept as a oomplete re?
futation of all dishonor attached to the
word the noble language usod in regard
to it by a great statesman and patriot of
England. "The term rebel," said Chas.
Fox, "is no certain mark of disgrace.
For all the great apostles of liberty, tho
saviors of their oouutry, the benefactors
of mankind, ia all ages have boen called
rebels, and we oven owe tho constitution
which enables us to Bit in this house to a
Nor are there wanting mon at tho
North who, rising high above tho preju?
dices of their section, and tho trammels
of popular opinion, dara to assert in
language as lofty, sentiments as noble as
those so eloquently expressed by this
great orator. It was my good fortune,
on a recent occasion in New York, to
hear ono who would bo an honor to any
country, address an audience composed
of Southern as well as Northern mon.
In touching tho grent issues which had
so lately arrayed the two sections in war,
he drow a glowing picture of patriotism.
He told us how this virtue, beginning
with ono's family, spreads in ever-widen?
ing waves till it embraced all we have at
country; and then turning to the South?
erners who were present, ho brought
tears of gratified pride to their eyes b\
exclaiming: "And, gentlemen, the onhj
reason why you will not hereafter be re
garded aa the noblest patriots who evei
lived, is simply because it has happenec
that George Washington fought in thc
same cause before you did."
You, my friends, of tho Light Infan
try, who bear tho name the Father o
his Country hus mado immortal, mus1
feel your hearts swell with patriotic prid<
when you know that the great and gooc
of other lands deem you not unworthy
to be placed alongside of Washington
Yo.i bear his name, and you have ptovei
yourselves worthy to do so. Thero an
other historic associations of peculia
and proud interest, which connects you
organization closely with the great nam'
it bears. Amid that grand group of revo
lutionnry heroes who illustrated by thei
deeds in the great rebellion of '76, in tin
history of South Carolina, no name i
held in higher esteem than that of Wm
Washington, tho worthy kinsman am
follower of his illustrious namo-sake
On the bloody fields of Cowpens am
Eutaw, his glorious banner-tho preciou
gift of devoted woman-swept througl
carnage to victory. That same banne
of Washington, whioh had boen conse
crated by tho prayers of woman-bap
tized in the best blood of Carolina
sanctified by tho causo of freedom ii
which it had waved-venerated by on
whole people as tho symbol of victory
tho ensign of liberty-was committed b
Washington's widow to the Washingtoi
Light Infantry, and her own honore'
hands presented it. When she gave thi
flag whioh her patriot husband had s
nobly borne through tho war of indc
pendence, she solemnly adjured you
company to defend it, if aoed be, wit
their lives, and to maintain its bono
unsullied, und to bo forever true to th
great cause-the cause of freedom-i
whioh it had first been unfurled. Me
of tho Washington Light Infantry, sou
of mon who fought by the side of Mt
rion, of Sumter, of Moultrie, of Piel
ons, of Rutledge, of Huger, and c
Washington, how havo you kept thl
solomn charge? Lot Manassas, and Sc
cessionville, and Seven Pines, an
Sharpsburg, aud Cold Harbor, an
Gaines' Mill, and Malvern Hill, and Drt
ry's Bluff, and Fort Sumter, aud Poten
burg, and Battery Wagner, andBontoni
ville, aud Chickamauga, and Fredoricki
burg, and n sooro of other gloriou
battlo-fields, inscribed in imporishab]
letters on that immortal banner of youri
answer. You, the mon who stand her
to-day, and thoso whoso uamos are wri
tea on yonder slab, have fought unde
tho same flag, ia the same cause you
fathers did, aad fought with a patriotic
as lofty, a courage as high, a devotio
m noble, as ever animated the hearts c
your patriot sires. You have prove
that the blood whioh flows ia your veil
is not degenerate, and that you have bee
worthy custodians of the precious oharj;
entrusted to your keeping. Be trui
then, each of you, I conjure you, no
and ever, whatever trials, vicissitudes, or
Bufferings beset you, to your lineage,
your principles, your renown. "Let all
the ends thoa aim'st at be thy God's,
thy Country's and Truth's; then if thoa
fallest, thou fallest a blessed martyr."
Besides all these incentives to noble
actions, presented hy the great traditions
and hallowed memories of the past, yon
have many others connected with the
formation and history of your corps, and
in the sacred objeots contemplated now
by your association. You caunot forget
that tho Washington Light Inlantry
owes its existence to tho patriotic im?
pulse which called its founders to repel
foreign invasion, and made them resort
to arms to defend that liberty which
their fathers had achieved. Need I re?
call to your memory the nauio of your
Grat captain-a uamo justly dour to every
Carolinian's heart, honored wherever in?
tegrity of purpose, purity of lifo, power
of intellect, aro cstoomed-the name of
ono, of whom Honry Clay said: "Of all
the mon I have ever known, tho bejt
mau, tho wisest, the purest, and tho
grentest statesman, was Wm. Lowndes?"
On tho roll of your company, illustrated
first by this great name, are to bo found
many others worthily distinguished in
tho annals of our State, fit successors of
your illustrious captain. Nor need yon
fear to place tho record you made for
yourselves during tho lato war by the
sido of that of any other command, nor
to compare the officers and mon whom
you gave to tho "Lost Cause," with any
who sorvod the Confederacy. Iou gave
throo general officers-Pettigrew, Con?
ner and Logan-all worthily distinguish?
ed in that causo, and with them, as field
officers, Johnson, DeTrevilloand Simon
ton, whilo almost every command from
this Stato drew from your ranks, so pro?
lific of gallant soldiers, many of its most
efficient subaltern officers and men. How
tho rauk and file of tho Washington
Light Infantry did their ?luty to their
country is told in mute, but eloquent
language, by the lou g list of houored
names that meet your eyes on this monu?
ment, which you have dedicated reve?
rently and affectionately to your noble
dead. Well worthy are they of all the
honor you can pay them, for they surely
fell blessed martyrs; and this convictiou
on our part is full of comfort to those
who seo the names of their kindred writ?
ten on the South's roll of honor, that
list which records her dead.
I know how vain is all human conso?
lation to tho heart that is called upon to
give up some object around which tho
tenderest affections cluster. I know that
many a pareut in our mourning land, as
ho looks through eyes blinded b}' thc
tears that will well up from his heart, at
some loved name, perhaps on that tomb,
or some stone that covers nil that was
mortal of ono who was his pride, his
hope, his darling, cries out in tho pa?
thetic language wrung from a bereaved
father's heart: "Oh, my son Absalom!
my son, my sou Absalom! Would God
I had died for thee! O, Absalom! my
son, my soul" I can understand, I can
feel-I havo felt all this. But still, feel?
ing deeply for those who mourn their
kindred slain, knowing how and for what
our Bons hove died, cannot each ono who
has given his children to his country,
concealing the grief of tho father iu tho
holy zeal of tho patriot, say proudly, as
he stands by tho grave of his son :
"Why, then, God's aoldior he lie!
Had I as many sons as I have hairs,
I would not wish thom a fairer death."
It is right and proper that you should
preserve the memory of our dead heroes.
Would that wo could erect to them
monument whose foundations should bo
as eternal as the great truths for which
they died; lofty us their fame; pure as
our love; lnstiug ns our gratitude; rising
proudly from tho earth that holds their
clay, aud pointing with its spotless shaft
to that heaven whoro wo devoutly trust
that they are now at rest. It is a touch?
ing and beautiful article of belief in the
creed of that strange system of theology
which takes its name from its founder
ono of tho most wonderful men of the
last century-that those who fall in bat?
tle fighting honestly and truly for their
couutry, are immediately transported to
heaven, to partakoof tho highest joys of
that blissful abode; and though no such
promise is held out by our religion to its
votaries, it surely is not incousistent
with its holy spirit or divine teaching,
that this may be tho case. The trust of
the patriot and the faith of the Christian
may then unite iu hope, so full of joy
and consolation, that oar dead patriots
"God's soldiers"-purified by tho great
oblation of their lives for their country's
liberty, standing now in tho prcscuce of
the Eternal God, looking down with
grateful hearts on this solemn scene,
bringing their prayers for you, who aro
now manifesting your reverence and love
for them, to the very foot-stool of tho
Throne of Grace, aro invoking with de?
vout supplications from tho Father of
Mercies, for you, all those rich blessings
which He, and Ho alone, can bestow.

Yesterday morning, 10 o'clock, as a co?
lored policeman, named John Fitzsim
nions, attempted to arrest a white attache
of thc Circuit Court, named Simons, he
was shot in tho lower part of the body.
The wound is considered dangerous, if
not mortal. When some of the colored
persons collected around the magistrate's
office, mado threats of lynching their
fellow-radical, he appealed to Magistrate
Nash for protection, asserting that he
fired the shot accidentally.
A difficulty occurred between some
colored persons, yesterday, on Mr. Tay^

woman, who had formerly been his wife.
A load of buck-shot did the job. When
