Saturday Morning, September 10,1870.
President Grant and itt?) Movement for
Reform In Soutu Carolin?.
Mr. r>. H. Chamberlain, the Attorney
General of the State, having made to
President Grant the report of certain
words incorrectly ascribed to General
Butler, drew from the President a criti?
cism reflecting upon the Reform move?
ment. Mr. Chamberlain invests this
criticism with so much significance that
he affirms that Reform journals "dare"
not publish Presidont Grant's language.
We have this to say to Mr. Chamberlain,
that BO far as this journal is concerned,
Gen. Grant's words aro not so potent as
he seems to regard them. Gen. Grant
was magnanimous in war, and wo have
not failed to make this acknowledgment.
Bat his civil career has not been, in our
judgment, creditable either to his mind
or his heart. lu seeking a reform in
South Carolina, wo havo no reuson to ex?
pect any sp?cial aid from President
Grant. Nor do we think that his gra?
cions favor ie by any means essential to
the sucoess of tho movement for reform.
We deny that his orrtioiun is well found?
ed and we ropol tho intimation of insin?
cerity that he undertaken to allix to the
motives of those engaged in tho Reform
-effort. And we do nat hesitate to soy
.that from his high placo it ill becamo the
.Chief Magistrate of the country to call
cnto question the motives of thoso en?
gaged in a certain political effort. Gen.
Grant's troops did not prevent a great
Reform victory in North Carolina. In
South Carolina, Gen. Grant's note to
Mr. Chamberlain will be alike impotent
to repress tho free expression of the
popular sentiment as well as tho popular
Tile Fr?tent Regime* Inconsistent ultu
ttie Prosperity of South Carotlnu.
In no merely partisan spirit, but with
a due sense of the obligation of truthful
statement, we have again and again in
these columns denounced tho present
regime iu South Carolina as at warfare
with the best interests of our population,
white as well as colored. Let us consi?
der calmly and deliberately wherein it
bas beou weighed iu tho balance and
1. In this- that il has introduced into
the Slate a system of fraud, corruption and
bribery disastrous and disgraceful. It is
a matter of common notoriety, that in
nearly, if not every County of tho State,
gross frauds and mifemanngemeut of tho
County funds have been made apparent.
In many instances, tho County officers
are notoriously ignoruut, or inefficient or
corrupt, and in most eases, where the
officers are of the Goveruor's appoint?
ment, they aro sclented uot because of
honesty or capability, but because of
party considerations. But this atato of
things is uot confined to tho Couuties.
Look to the late General Assembly, and
consider tho shameful and bare-faced
bribery uud corruption that have caused
oven Republican journals to mnko the
monstrous thing a subject of hearty
denunciation. Look to the Land Com?
mission swiudles-exposed hero and
there, all over the State. Seo how, in
tho casu of State officers, private for?
tunes, by undoubted rascality, have been
made at the public expense. And ob?
servo how plundering Rings havo beeu
shown to prey upon the State.
2. The present regime is ut war with
the public interests in this-that the delibe?
rate purpose of the Executive and his
aiders arid abettors is lo keep up an antago?
nism between the two races thal live in South
Carolina. It is certainly desirable that
a good understanding should exist be?
tween the whites and blacks in the Stuto.
This would lead to a better system of
labor, and hence to lurger productions,
and hence to greater prosperity. And
this would also lead to that union of the
good men of both color, that we so muoh
need in order to secure capable and
honest and thrifty government, andnu
ecouomical administration of our public
affairs. This, too, would promote that
internal peace that scoures tho iutercsts
3. The present regime is inconsistent
with the public good also, iu this-that
it does not encourage the flow in the State
of that capital that we need and of that
thrifty population which we desire, in order
to supplement our numbers.
It is obvious that capital and Bottlers
aro not disposed to place themselves
under n government which eveu radical
journals have pronounced "a disgrace to
civilization." A Republican, of Colum?
bia, statod, iu effect, to us not long since:
"Give good government to South Caro?
lina-got rid of your plundering King
nud I will g naran iee that thousands of
settlers will move to South Cand?na with
their families and their means." But,
added ho, "you must not expect them to
como under present circumstances."
Assuming now, that tho proposition
that the present regime is not promotive
of the publie good, has been established,
the question is, what follows? Plainly,
that it is oar duty to give all possibler
impetus to the present movement for
REF o BM. This movement seeks the good
of the State. It appeals to sober and
discreet men of both races and parties
to combine upon a liberal platform, and
to work for tho common good. Tho pro?
position is to give good and honest go?
vernment to South Carolina-to put an
end to the reign of plunderers and self
seekers-to secure peaco between the
races and to encourage and stimulate the
flow into the State of capital and skill
and enterprise. Surely, saoh a work is
deserving of patriotio effort.
The Decline ot War.
Tho admirable certainty with wilie'
tho machiuery of war destroys humnu
lifo, its continuous advance toward per?
fection as an art, while it overwhelms us
with its present horrors shows us through
tho murky smoke of hattie the silver
lining beyond, and the shining shores of
perpetual peace awaiting tho civilized
world. Surely the bloody testimony
now in progress, of tho folly and crime
of destroying human lifo by wholo
annies, without a shadow of excuse in
tho beginning or a grain of recompenso
in the end, is not to bo lost ou tho
obscure millions who are thus made tho
victims of the sanguinary lust of empe?
rors and kings-intelligent as theso
masses become, and clear-sighted in re?
spect to their individual righto, and iu
respect lo the absurd pretense of
crowned bigots and imperial despots to
rule and ruin. Indeed, no conflict
could have had a happier origin, or have
been characterized by moro appropriate
circumstances, if its purpose were, as
wo trust it is, in tho order of Providence,
to moko historical a great lesson to man?
kind, warning the nations against tho
desigus of selfish rulers, and illustrating
by its conscqueuces, which aro likely to
consist chiefly of the ashes of tho dead,
tho most inconceivable human misery,
und most measureless human shame.
As the New Orleans Times says, it is no
whero protended that Franco or Prussia
required this war. It had its source in
the evil minds of selfish and ambitions
rulers, whose objects wero personal to
themselves, marshalling hundreds of
thousands of young and vigorous men
to tho fields of slaughter, that they may,
on the ono hand, perpetuate au indi?
vidual dynasty, aud on tho other achieve
personal fame, Tho first lesson to bf
gleaned from the bloody anuals lies ic
thc fact that tho great powers have de?
clared there shall bo no dismemberment
on tho ono hand, or aggrandizement ol
territory on the other, to either nation,
as a consequence of victory or defeat.
This leads us to au assurance of pleasing
progress in respect to future wars. It
will leavo tyrants without adequate pro
texts for hostilities, und reduce interna
tiona! conflicts, if they still como, to flu
moral paucity of a combat of gladiators
But after au exhibition of strife, si
needless aud so sanguinary, may then
not arise among the leading powers o
Europe, a souse of responsibility highe]
and grander than that of lixiug cotise
queuces? May not humanity so fal
vindicate: its nature and its God us t<
inspire them with au impulse rather t(
direct tho prevention of wars than t<
deny belligerents the rewards of meril
when over? It may be well to say ti
those: "You may fight, but we, the cou
servatives of European integrity aud o;
the general peace, deny you other cou
sequences than mutual bloodshed." Bu
it would assuredly be better to say
"Fight not at all." How simple am
how grand u spectacle might be made t<
electrify tho world and inspire deligh
wherever tho sensitive heart of mai
thrills iu response to emotions of joy, o
throbs in painful sympathy to a cry o
paiu, by means of an international con
veution of powers or States, met to in
stituto a code of solemn laws, to b<
enforced in adjusting all disputes be
tween nations, prescribing forever tin

A IVapoIeonlot Journal OB ?ho Efronch
The Courrier des Etais Unis, the load?
ing French j on ru al in this country, ad?
mits that tho defeat is final. It says:
It is usefoss to disguise the truth. The
army which bas not surrendered, but
bas been surrendered to the enemy, was
the dower of our military population.
With McMahon destroyed and Bazaine
helpless, France has left countless masses
fanatical with patriotism, ready to throw
themselves blindly upon tho mouths of
the Prussian caunou; but she has no
longer an army.
New masses, however, full of confi?
dence, are helpless aguiost military
science, discipline, and, above all,
against modern arms. Once it waa men
who made war; bravery supplemented
number; enthusiasm mudo heroes. Now,
it is rifled cannon aud perfected musket?
ry that tight; tho mun is no longer moro
than the attendant of the weapon; ho
counts for but oue, und courage without
numbers only makes victims.
All Frnuco, with her 3,000,000 of
young men from tweuty to thirty years
of age, riaiug as oue, extemporized into
soldiers, and hurled iu full career upon
the solid, iutclligent, well-armed, disci?
plined mass of tho victorious Prussians,
would throw itself ou butchery, aud
would not drive back ono step the wall
of steel before her.
No doubt France will receive with a
cry of tierce wrath, liko tho lion falleu
into a ditch, the story of the surrender
signed in her name; and that tho first
movement will bo a levy of tho whole
peoplo aud a leap towards uew combats.
But this lirst frenzy over, cool reflection
will come to throw au ice shroud on this
heroism, aud wo doubt if any man can
be found to tako the lead iu briugiug on
now conflicts, that is to say, the respon?
sibility of new disasters.
The people of Paris aud the com?
manders of tho besieged places, nay,
every manly heart that lias its hand ou a
flag-stall', may refuse to submit and de?
termine rather to dio than to suffer the
Prussiau flag to stand ou the ramparts
they guard; but (hero will bo no one to
organize this resistance, which would bo
suicide; no political party which will
risk, ou this bloody resort, the future
before it; uo one who docs not know
that France has no right to commit
suicide; that she belongs to thu world,
to civilization, to humanity, and that at
least one chance of success would bo
necessary to justify the horrors which
would result from continuing a war that
could no longer be aught but an uu
broken series of ravages, waste, slaugh?
ter and ruin.
Wo cannot tell what counsels will pre?
vail iu the fearful embarrassments iuto
which Frauce is plunged. Not to-day
uor to-morrow will culm and reflection
como out of this chaos. Some days
must be allowed to appease tho hot
fever of this hour. Then will come tho
limo of great resolves. Who will take
thom? Doubtless the natural repre?
sentatives of the country, tho assembled
Chambers, who will Hud iu their patriot?
ism the solution of the immense pro?
blem of re-establishing penco on tho

The fate of the Empire is Sealed. Our
first defeats were tho signal of its fall.
Napoleon III. is no longer more than a
phantom, aud his dynasty dies with
?lim. What, will succeed bim is tho
secret of the future.
Nor is it our part to predict uta gluuco
what changes these great events will
bring to the political, moral aud mate?
rial condition of Europe. One promt
neut fact, however, seems to us to be
fixed; it is that this atrocious butchery,
this frightful spectacle giveu to u tremb?
ling world, this accursed holocaust will
put au end to war. Prussia takes up the
sceptre of military greatness fallen from
the hands of France, but it is a broken
sceptre. No louger tho emblem of aught
but u dead power; of glory, indeed, but
glory that does not shiue on the future.
No longer is it its arms that shall give
supremacy to nations, and Germany,
united by tho victory of Prussia, will
hereafter bo neither greater nor more
powerful thau yesterday, if her aggran?
dizement is not tho signal for a liberal
progress of humanity. Her flag will
not bo more glorious, if it is only to
continuo to shelter effete institutions.
The struggle henceforth is no longer
between the material forces of the na?
tion; it is in their moral dovclopment,
their civilization and their liberties.
Thus Franco, even mutilated, if it must
be so, will still remain, we hope, the
great loading and glorious nation. The
day when, by tho fated march of events,
n day doubtless nut far distant, tho des?
tiny of the people will no longer be left
to tho chances of battle; tho day when a
less barbarous justice will settle the dis?
putes amoug men; tho day when armies
cease to consumo tho brightest resources
and energies of thu Dations; to put ut
risk the equilibrium of public forces, tho
genius of Franco will recover in moral
power what sim hus lost iu material
power. Couutries will no longer bo mea?
sured by tho extent of their territory and
the number of their people, but hythe
worth of tho progress they havo achieved
aud the liberties they have conquered;
on that day, France, cured of her
wounds, will again, iu spite of the cruel
way in which sue is torn, take the place
of houk-r which belongs to her in the
front of civilized nations.

POLITICAL PLATFORMS-"THE INCLU?

As the season for coustrncting plat?

regard of a certain facetious correspon?

be of interest. According to this inge?
nious gentleman, tho subject is best con?

Old-fashioned Platform, which simply

a glittering generality and tails ol? ?uto
a huge string of tempting declarations,
each adapted tu some special taste. To

Our London correspondent assures us,
as an ascertained fact, that thu Emperor
Napoleon has enough money invested in
thu English funds to yield him an annual
income of ?100,000. This sum, capi?
talized nt tho Euglish rate of interest,
represents over ?3,000,000. He also
estimates that the Emperor has as much
invested in other countries. According
to this estimate. Napoleon has not been
