COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Horning, Octobtr 5, 1870.
Doatb of Senator Back.
Oar telegraphic colamos au noonoo the
death at Saratoga of this esteemed Caro?
linian. Mr. Bnok was the Demooratio
Senator from Korry, and was highly re?
garded for his estimable qualities,
florry thus loses one of its oldest and
Reported IllneM of Gan. Robert K. Lee.
Oar readers doubtless read with pain?
ful interest the report of the illness of
this old hero, so loved and honored by
the Southern people. We shall await
with anxiety further intelligence on tho
subject. The Angosta Constitutionalist,
referring to the nows that rcaohcd us in
yesterday's despatch, says:
"Since- tho abovo was iu typo, addi?
tional intelligence, received by our mid?
night despatches, dissipate tho sad re?
ports of tho first despatch, and wo ore
assured that General Lee bas not suffered
from any symptom of apoplexy or para?
lysis, but merely froiu torpor, the result
of unusual fatigue in his professional
capacity and participation iu an exciting
meeting of the vestry of the Episcopal
Church. He has not been deprived of
the uso of his bodily power, and is ablo
to sneak as occasion requires. His
speedy restoration is confidently pre?
dicted by his physicians. This assurance
will remove a mountain of sorrow cre?
ated by tbe first despatch."

Educate the masses-the masses of
.colored people, ns well as tho masses of
white people. Lift the colored man
from the dominion of the bad and in?
cendiary man who plays with his mind
as long as it is kept in the dark. Dissi?
pate tho thick darkness that oppresses
his politioal vision, and you dissipate the
power of the imposters who imposo false
shows under the glim morin g and casual
rays of light that penetrate this thick
darkness. The political power of the
colored race has been established. Theil
capacity to nae politioal power must be
improved or the rest of us must bo ruined.
While educating them, let this be done
in a way to avoid all prejudice of race 01
color. Statesmen must deal with facte
aa they are, not as philosophers and the
orisors would have them to be. Then
is all over America an opinion and i
sentiment avorse to mingling the twe
races that are here. The colored pooplo
were they in the. majority and in power
would be controlled by this sentiment
and this opinion, fully as much as th<
white people are controlled by this senti
ment and this opinion. It docs no
arise from thc consideration that th
colored mau was a slave. The avcrsioi
to mingling the blood of tho white an?
the red races (and the red race was neve
enslaved) is almost as strong as tin
aversion to the mingling of the whit,
and the black races.
Nature has pot this mark of color 01
distinct races of people. The laws di<
not do that.' In order to accomplis!
what is good for both races, it is well fo
the laws to recognize what nature ba
done. This mark of color does exis
here in Virginia. At present it is so dh
tinctly recognized, that to require bot!
races to mingle in tho publio schools, i
to reuder the publio schools valuable ti
neither. Those who wish to enervate an
to paralyze the whole scheme of genera
education, could not use more effectua
means than to compel this mingling o
all races and colors among thoso who us
the public schools. The enemies of edu
cation have efficient allies in those wh
agitate this fusion of races in the soho A
Lot all unite, says tho Richmond Ei
quircr, not in what is theoretically mos
commendablo, but iu what is practicall
most useful. To educate thc masses c
the children of tho country-white chi
dren and colored children-is tho grot
object to be accomplished. Let the moi
available modo of doing that work L
adopted. Moro political bobbies ongl
not to bo ridden ou that sacred grounc
Ho is au enemy to both races who woul
so inaugurate, or so operate, n system <
education as to render it practicall
useless to either race.

Mn, EDITOB: AS I ?m a candidato for
the g ta to Senate, I wish to place myself
in a proper light belora th? public. Aa
a great deal hat been ?pud for and against
me, and as there is mach misunderstand?
ing concerning my tme po sit i o ii, I would
simply state here, for the satisfaction of
all parties concerned, that when I was
solioited by many of my fri?nds to con?
sent to allow my name to be used as a
candidate for the State Senate, I refused,
wishing to have nothing to do with, poli?
ties. But after considerable thought
aud reflection over the slatter, I said to
my friends, as there is only one tioket iu
the Bold, and I thought there could
hardly be an election without opposition,
I consented to run -with . this proviso,
that if a third tioket should oome out, I
would decline running, as I thought it
useless for three tickets to be in the field.
Much fear has been entertained upon
that point; bot in view of the recent an?
no un cc m eut in tho Phoenix that there
will be no other nominations, except the
two already in the field, and that tho
voters of this County have concluded to
make up their selection from the two
tickets now before the publio, I have
concluded to run the race to the end of the
track, though our tioket seems to bo a
very objectionable one, simply because
many of the whites havo said thoy would
voto for it. Now, sir, I consider every
mau in Biohland a free man, and having
a right to cast his. vote wherever he
pleases. Furthermore, when our ticket
was made np, it was made up by Repub?
licans-neither Reformer nor Democrat
persuaded ns or advised ns at all about
it. After our names appeared in the pa?
per, several white gentlemen spoke to us,
saying that they liked the ticket and
would support it; many others said they
would make np their tioket from the t wo
in the field. Not one asked me to ohange
my principles as a Republican, nor even
hiuted Buoh a thing. And it is the fa?
vorable remarks of those gentlemeu con?
cerning tho ticket that has caused ns to
be denounced as being traitors and try?
ing to steal the liberties of the people.
Tho fifteenth amendment, I hold, gives
every ono in South Carolina his liberty
and his right to express through the
ballot-box whom he will have to make
the laws by which ho is to bo governed,
as well as tho right to express his politi?
cal opinions. Now, sir, as a candidate,
I proposo to fight this thing fairly and
squarely with my opponents, and to have
no personal or ill feeling against auy
man; and if they beat me fairly, I am
still willing to give them my baud in a
friendly spirit. There are a class of men
whom I look upon as gentlemen, espe?
cially those who aro seeking office (at
least they should be), and another class
whom I look upon as blackguards, that
are beneath my notice. It has been said
that I do not attend publio meetings.
The reason is a simple one. I have never
been properly invited to them. I am
nob afraid to speak my opinion any?
where, and that's the great principle we
are fighting for now, and not offices.
They also say I am in sympathy with
the Reformers, simply because I talk to
them. I do not expect ever to have my
mouth again closed. I expect to Bpeak
to every man, let him bo Republican or
not; and I expect to get all the votes I
can, as I know tbe opposing candidates
will do the same. If they do not, I am
not to blame. These are my principles,
and auy man who does, not choose to
vote for me on such grounds, and thinks
I am trying to deoeive, why, of course,
let him exercise a free mon's right aud
do as he pleases. 1 shall lu satisfied.
Mn. EDITOR: The Union Reform

The OCQOUU t which the Patrie boa pub?
lished qf thu last incidente ol the battle
of Bedan, and whian it said it received
from an ofBcer attached to the staff of
Gen. Wimpffen, has pot the condoot of
the ex-Emperor of toe French in so un?
favorable a light that one could only ex
peot some denial of the account on tbe
part or in the nome of the prisoner of
WilhelmBhohe. Subjoined is a docu?
ment which baa been communicated to
ns, its object being the refutation of tbe
[account in tbe'?'a?r?e. We publish it in
?i spirit of impartiality, and beenuso
there aro some discussions from which
information may always be derived. As
to its value and tho degree of confidence
it merits, we will co?tent ourselves with
remarking that it emanates from tho
aides-de-camp who accompanied tbe
fallen sovereign nt Wilhelmshohe, and
who bear testimony, in some degree foi
themselves, while they think, no doubt,
that they aro only bearing testimony iu
favor of their accused leader. The fol?
lowing is the document in question :
The letter which appeared in the Pa
trie, of the 11th of September, and windi
is attributed to an officer of tho staff ol
Gen. Wimpffen, implicates ic so grave
and so unjust a manner, tho respousibi
lity of tho Emperor in tho catastropli?
of Sedan, that tbe officers who had tin
honor to remain with his Majesty cann ol
allow such assertions to be made withou
stating the true facts of the cano. Whet
the different commanders of army corpi
came to warn the Emperor that thci
troops were repulsed, dispersed, and ii
part driven baok into the town, the Em
pcror sent to the Commauder-iu-Chief
in order that be might asoortuin fron
them the actnal situation. At the sam
time, the Commander-in-Chief sent ti
the Emperor two officers of his stuff wi tl
a lotter, in which bo proposed to Iii
Majesty not to save tho anny, but. t
' save his person, by placing bim in th
midst of a strong columu, with whic
he said an attempt might bo mado t
reach Carignnn. The Emperor refuse
to sacrifice a large number of soldiers i
order to savo himself; "besides," sai
he, "Car?guan is occupied by the Prut
sians; but if tho general thinks he ca
save some portion of the army, let hi i
do so." /Vt. the same time that tho ?epl
of the Emperor reached the Com mandel
in-Chief, the latter imparted to Gen.
Bruu, tho commauder of tho Twelft
Corps, bis project to collect 2,000 <
3,000 men, to put himself at their boat
and to make a gap in tho Prussian line
Gen. LeBrun answered him : "You wi
cause 3,000 moro men to be killed, nc
you will not succeed, but if you wish 1
try, I will willingly go there with you.
They left each other, and in le
than half an hour nftorward, Gener
Wimpffen was convinced that his attem]
was impracticable, and no other oonr;
wns open to him except laying dov
arms. Gen. Wimpffen went back
Sedan, and considering that it was Inn
for him, who had only taken the coe
maud ad interim, to affix his signature
a capitulation, he sent his resignation I
the Emperor, in the following terms:
"SIUE: I shall never forget tho mar'
of kindness which you have accorded
me, and I Bbould have been happy, f
the Hake both of Franco and of yourao
to have been able to terminate to-d.13
engagement by a glorious success,
have not been able to bring about tl
result, and I think I shall do well if
leave to others the duty of leading o
"Under these circumstances I deem
my duty to resign my post of Comma
der-iu-Chief, and to ask that I may 1
allowed to retire. I am, &c,
The Emperor refused to accept t'
resignation. It was necessarry, indee
that he who bud had the honor of t
command during tho battle should s
cure, as far ns possible, the safety
what remained of the army. The Ge
eral understood these recsons, ai
withdrew bis resignation. It was tu
9 o'clock in tho evening, and the firii
had censed at nightfall. It is entire
false to say that the General was oppos
by the Emperor in his ideas and in t
orders bo was able to give, for his Majes
only met him for n moment on tho (ic
of battle between 9 and 10 o'clock. T
General was coming from Balan, a
tho Emperor asked him bow the batt
was proceeding ou that side. The C
"Sire, things are going on as well
possible, and wo aro gaining ground."
To tho observation which his Majes
made that an officer had just warned h
that a considerable corps of the cnet
was outflanking our left, the Gene
"Very well, so much the bettor. It
necessary to let them do so; we v
drive them into tho Meuse and we sh
gain the victory."
These aro tho only relations which t
Emperor had with General WimpD
during thc action, and it is equally fit
to say that there was the slightest alt
cation between tho Emperor and I
General. When they separated tho E
poror embraced tho General most nfl

Hon. A. H. Stephens, in a recent lot?
ter to Mr. J. A. Stewart, of Rome, Ga.,
ou tho qualifications of Congressmen,
thus points out the great goal to which
all Southern politics should tend:
But the fact that a good and true man
could toko it (tho test oath) ought not,
in my opinion, to be auy objection to
any one iu looking ont for members of
Congress. There uro some who eau take
it that I would not vote for. But my
reasons are not founded upon tho simple
fact that they caw take it; they rise from
the fact of their radical, centralizing
principles, which are at war with the
whole frame-work of tho Constitution.
A more ardent devoteo to n perpetual
union of tho States under tho Constitu?
tion than I am, never lived. My own
opiniou is, that the surest gnarautce of
this is the full recognition of the sove?
reign tight of each member to quit it
when iu her deliberate judgment thc
compact has been broken. This recog?
nized right, in the opinion of Mr. Jeffer?
son, was the greatest security against
violations of the constitution, and a
complete check against ultimate central?
ism or empire. When there is no such
recognized check the dauger of centrali?
zation is imminent and perilous.
I, however, do not require those with
whom I act to agree with mo on those
particular points. It is enough for me,
in all practical acts, that my associate

OBJECTIONS TO THE CHINESE.-While
the employment of Chinese as domestic
servants muy bo in many respects desira?
ble, it is n:t well to avoid undue enthusi?
asm upon the subject. A Boston agent
for securing tho services of these has
many applications for them, but he is
obliged to cease advertising tho business
for nu unforeseen reason. Chinamen
aro very clannish, and object to being
separated from their countrymen, pre?
ferring to engage themselves in compa?
nies. There aro said also to bo some
disagreeable experieuces at times, on the
part of family employers, in another
way. They lind that Chinese servants
aro very peculiar as to temper-quick to
take offence at slight and, to tho white
man, unintelligible causes. And when
they do get into a passion, resort to wea?
pons of some sort may not unfrequeutly
be looked for. At all events, this is
what some peoplo say who profess to
know them well. That Chinamen can
bo ferocious, tho Tieu-Tsiu massacre
shows clearly enough. Without, there?
fore, discouraging the new movement iu
regard to domestic service, it may not bo
amiss to suggest seeking fuller informa?
tion upon tho Bubjeot than we now have.
