COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Morning, September 4,1870,
TH? Political. Situation.
Practical, commou-senco peoplo usually
achieve results through praotioal, com
inon-senso mensuras. They do not ex?
pect to gather grapes of thorns, or figs
of thistles, nor do they believe that the
longest way round is invariably the
shortest way home. As pertinent to this
issue, we take it for granted that tho
necessity of a complete ohango in the
management of our public affairs has
become apparent to all. Radicalism, so
called, has played its disgusting part, to
the utter demoralization of its agents
and the utter prostration of the best in?
terests of the country. Except among
those who profit by its corruption, it
can find none so poor as to do it rever?
ence. Born of confusion and interne?
cine strife, nursed at the pap of fraud,
fostered by irresponsible and arbitrary
authority, it now approaobes a felon's
end with a felon's impertinence. The
verdict;' pf popular condemnation has
been written on the walls of the Nation's
Honso of Life, and tho judgment is re?
corded in that red-leafed book-tho peo?
ple's heart-never to be erased.
In T?CW of the consummation, so de?
voutly to be wished, the people of each
State will be compelled to toko a com?
mon-sense view of their circumstances
and surroundings, and plan tho ap?
proaching campaign with an intelligent
recognition of- all the advantages and
disadvantages of the situation. There
most be no attempt to ignore existing
laws, or to deprive any man of rights
recognized by constitutional provisions.
Bringing the matter homo to ourselves,
the first and most vital demand made
upon us, as a self-governing peoplo, is
to redeem the. State. Every mau who
has property to be preserved from tho
rapacity of the plunderer, and to whom
the pursuit of happiness is not an en?
tirely abandoned dream, is interested in
driving out from their strongholds of
security the political adventurers who
have fastened themselves as vampires on
the State, to eat away its substance, and
have mocked our people in their calamity
with the severe scorn of spoil-loving and
To the citizens of Columbia and South
Carolina, plunderers at homo are far
more to be. dreaded than plunderers at
Washington. Our local taxes are heavier
than our Federal taxes, and for our own
local shortcomings we are moro directly
responsible, both in purso and feeling,
than for those which we suffer iu com?
mon with all the rest of the sovereigu
people of the United States-the proprie?
tors and rulers of a "boundless conti?
nent." As preliminary to attending to
the necessities of the Nation's House of
Life, let us see to it that our own house
is set in order-that all rodent intruders
are driven from larder and ki token, from
store-house and sink, and an odor of de?
cency and propriety is again established
in that dearest of all places-homo. To
do this would bo comparatively easy if
all who aro interested in bringing about
so desirable a result could bo induced to
work harmoniously together.
Disturbing elements must be thrust
aside, if we wish to secure that union
whioh is strength. Tho anti-nigger,
Quixotic wurfare against dead issues and
settled results, which sectional Hotspurs
. are so prone to engage in, is not only
useless but suicidal, and must conse?
quently be frowned down. Wo must
ungrudgingly give the negro ult his
moral, political and legal rights, or wo
cannot expect that co-operatiou on
whioh alone victory may be safely pre
diotatcd. His interest in a faithful and
economical administration of our public
trusts, and an honest collection and dis?
bursement cf necessary taxes, is as great,
in a moral and political point of view, os
that of any other citizen. Let him,
then, bo invited to join in a holy effort
to maintain those principles of unadul?
terated Republicanism which properly
attach to legitimate self-government.
Honesty and capacity in public ofllcers,
whether State or municipal, aro quite as
essential to his well-being as they aro to
the well-being of tho white men. In
this, we are all bound together in a com?
munity of interest which entirely over?
rides tho smaller problems of fashion or
of caste. To be a successful community,
we must seoure prosperity on such
terniB aa it can be best maintained; we
must sbow an equivalent for taxes levied;
make lifo and property seoure, and give
a reasonable encouragement to art, in?
dustry and oommorce.
When the proper determination is
evinced by an organization of proper
appliances, tho road to a local victory
will then be clear. After that, the larger
national issues, which demand an intel?
ligent solution at tho next Presidential
campaign, may bo studied and arranged.
Wo must meet the anti-radicals of the
i i *
Well as State reforms, ina g?nerons
spirit of accommodation and concession.
The strategy involved must be no Janus
faced affair, with, one set of eyes looking
to the North and another to the South,
bot a comprehensive, All-embracing plan,
founded oh tho true base of enlightened
self-govornmont. By such signs we alone
Fourth. Kplatle to Paul.
Mn. EDITOK: In my last I promised to
inform my young friend Paul, who
thoughtlessly pormits himself to bo used
as tho monkey used the cat, to pull tho
chesnuts out of the fire, lo show here
what ho calls tho regular ticket was
evoked from the Convention of the 23d
and 24th July. But it will be better to
devote an epistle to an illustration of its
materials, before we proceed to tho man?
ner in which they wero manipulated. As
a specimen brick, then, of this puissant
body, wo will solect thc delegation from
tho Camp Ground precinct, about twelve
miles from Columbia. I state this upon
the authority of a gentleman of elevated
character, resident in the neighborhood,
an influential Republican, and a mau
whose word or his bond needs no endor?
ser. Having consulted with tho Repub?
licans of the vicinity, ho informed one
of the leadors of the Bing, in Columbia,
that they proposed holding their meet?
ing at the Camp Ground precinct, for
the selection of delegates to the Stale
Convention on the succeeding Saturday.
This was approved of by the individual
addressed, who promised that a party
would attend from this city, accompanied
by speakers, musio, &o. This was sup?
posed to be the definite arrangement.
But two days previous to the time
designated my informant, whilo riding
to the city, met a party of individuals,
among whom were those whose names
are now on the so-called regular ticket
for Representatives in tho Legislature,
and ono other who expected to bo, who
were evidently making their way to tho
Camp Ground. He was subsequently
informed by one of the parties that on
that occasion they had selected eight in?
dividuals to represent tho precinct in tho
Convention, and ho ascertained after?
wards that tho impression prevailed thut
theso political missionaries were acting
under tho authority of Council No. 10.
Theso gentlemen, thus authorized, ap?
peared with these credentials at tho Coun?
ty Convention, and were received into
full communion, and voted in tho form?
ation of what is claimed as tho regular
ticket and there is little doubt that every
precinot in tho county, except Colum?
bia and Gadsden, were represented iu a
similar manner and by similar authority.
But enough for this epistle.
EDITOR PBXEXIX: The Republican has
a perfect horror of the old South Caro?
lina aristocracy, except in a caso where
a membor of the former aristocratic class
of tho Stato happens to afliiliute with thu
radical party, in which caso, tho uow cou?
vert to radicalism is, as a little ?V? year
old of my acquaintance would express
it, "buuky boody." It is greatly elated
at tho political situation iu Spartanburg,
as represented by a correspondent from
that County who takes cognomen from
I tho tail of the Groek alphabet. Spartan
; burg is to give a majority of 1,500 votes
for Scott und Hausier, which event is
unmistakably foreshadowed by the fact
that General Winsmith hus given in his
ndhcsiou to that ticket. Now, who is
this General Winsmith? Why, sir, if
tho soil of tho Palmetto Stato ever gave
birth to au aristocrat, ho is un aristocrat
of tho first water. Tho sou of one
who was a Judge of this Stato -
wheu to be a member of the
Judiciary of the Stato meant some?
thing worthy of tho aspiration of
the State's most gifted sons-this Geno
ral ' Winsmith repudiated tho name
which ho inherited from his noble sire,
and which that siro had never dishonor?
ed, fur the simple reason, doubtless, that
tho name was too pleubian-like, and pe
tioned to tho Legislature for tho pnvi
lego to consolidate two of tho names
which his father had conferred upon
him, and thus make his name Wiusmith,
I instead of simply Smith, that name of ple
biau caste and un poetic sou nc/. Now, sir, I
am not finding fault with tho general, (won?
der what brigade, division or corps ho
commauded in tho lato unpleasantness?)
for changing his name, for ho hud a per?
fect right to do so, after tho Legislature
I gavo him permission; but I am simply
stating the fact, to show what tho gene?
ral is in feeling, in order that tho public
may seo that the Republican does uot
object to aristocracy always, provided
the aristocrat does not happen to bo uh
' opponent of radicalism. Who will sup?
pose for a moment that if ono of tho
numerous John Smiths, with vhom the
land abounds, had joined tho radical
party tho Republican would havo said
a word about it? Even had tho whole
batch who wear that euphoneons cog?
nomen joined that party, we should
hardly have heard it from that organ of
tho common people. But when Gcueral
Winsmith, who is really only n Smith by
another name, gives in his ndhesion, it
is horalded forth under the heading of
"good news from Spartan burg." The
general wants a place "high up in
Heaven," politically speaking; but whe?
ther ho will really Win or not, is a
mooted point. ALPHA.

The repudiation of Gov. Orr's course
in South Carolina, is, we are proud to
say, almost unanimous among the re?
spectable white people. His theory that
"the brigands aro ruling my Stato, there?
fore, I will take my gnu and go out on
the highway," is not calculated for tho
South Carolina latitude.

Thought is tbs life of. brain, aa exer?
cise is the life of the body. There can
be no more such. thing as a healthy
brain,- as to the mental i department,
without thought, study, than there can
bo a healthful body without exercise.
Andras physical exercise preserves the
body in health, so thought, which is the
exercise of the brain, keeps it well. But
hero the parallel ends; we may exercise,
work too much, in the way of expressing
ourselves, for both writing and talking
aro a relief to the mind; they aro in a
sonso its play; its diversion. Pent up
thoughts may kill, os pent np steam
wrecks tho locomotive. The expression
of thought is liku working the steam
from tho boiler. When clergymen break
down, or public men, or professors in
colleges or other literary institutions, get
sick und dio, tho universal cry is "over
study," "too much responsibility," "too
much mental application." It is never
so; not in a singlo caso siuco the world
began; wo defy proof, and will open our
pages to any authcutical case. If a man
will give himself sleep enough, and will
eat enough nutritious food at proper in?
tervals, and will Kpeud two or three
hours in tho opou air every day, he may
study and work and writo, until he is as
gray as a thousaud rats, aud will be still
young in mental vigor and clearness.

NAMES OF PARTIES.-The Courier-Jour?

on the subject of party names iu Ten
nesseo. It is a subject which has cause?
lessly occasioned a good deal of talk ia
our own State :
"The newspaper controversy that is
going on in Tennessee about party
names need alarm uo one. It is the
merest quibble, desigued to affect a cur?
rent local organization, and of the least
serious nod permanent portout. No one
dreams of a third party, or of a Whig
party, and nothing could be more anius
ing than the epistles of those Old-liue
Whigs who write as if there were such a
danger. Teunossee is about as safe a

claim to, and it is a matter of perfect in?

DEATH OF ROSBRI LEIIOY, Al. D.-At
a lato hour last eveuing we heard of the
death of Dr. Lebby, tho city registrar,
who had for some timo past been ill with
typhoid fever. Dr. Lebby was an old
and well-known physician of our city.
Ho was for some years a member of the
City Couucil, aud took especial interest
in tho artesian well and the construction
of tho tidal drains, being, we believe, on
both of tho committees appointed by
Couucil to take charge of these two en?
terprises. Previous to tho war bc had
been a surgeon in tho Uuited States
army, aud, ut tho timo of his death, was
port physician for Charleston harbor.

It is tho easiest thing in the world to
be happy, if men and women would only

nion. Whero love exists not, even
though it be in a palace, happiness can
never come. He was a cold and selfish
hoing who originated the saying that
"when poverty comes in the door, love
flies out of tho window;" and his asser?
tion proves conclusively that ho had no
knowlodgo of love, for, unquestionably,
tho reverse of it is true, and love is moro
than ever inclined to tarry and to battlo
with thc enemy. Let those who imagino
themselves miserable, beforo they find
fault with their surroundings, search
their own hearts for tho truo causo. A
