Tno Work Before U?-Tlie Duty of the
"Oar doubts are traitors,
And make us lose tho good wc oft might win,
By fearing to attempt"
These words may well eome up before
our minds in this eventful day, "big
with the fato of" South Carolina. How
true it is that "our doubts are traitorsl"
Many a victory has been lost-many an
enterprise has miscarried-mauy a high
hope has failed of its fruition, because of
men's doubts. It is our doubts that
often paralyze onr energies and bring
upon us disaster and defeat. And par?
ticularly does this sentimont how im?
peril the safety and the interests of
South Carolina. The white men of
South Carolina for REFORM, and the
colored men in sympathy therewith,
have this day in their hands the power
to redeem the State. Let them come
out from the mountains to the seaboard;
let them throw aside their traitorous
doubts] let them, standing upou their
native soil, catch tho spirit of hope and
determination; let them rise up in the
pride of their patriotism and in ?he
majesty of their strength, and South
Carolina will be won back and remitted
to honest, faithful and considerate
The reform organization of South
Carolina have the power to save the
State from the inroads that tho ring of
Ohio, Massachusetts and other plunder?
ers aro making upon the people's money
and tho people's hopes. Let us seo to
it that we use this power at tho ballot
box to-day. Tho ballot is tho weapon
now. Let tho ballot restore to us what
tho ballot lost us. Let the firm resolve
?ul Carolinians win back that of which the
apathy of Carolinians caused them to be
deprived. Nor should the hardness of
the times excuse any man-for the non?
performance of his duty. If business is
dull-if the merchant, mechanic or
laboring man fails to prosper as he
ought-if cotton is low-below the cost
of production, and the necessaries of life
continuo high-if the hopes of planter
and farmer have been blasted-in this
state of things will be found the strongest
argument for REFORM. If our people
were rich and their purses plethoric-if
our merchants were doing a thriving
business- -we might endure with equa?
nimity for two years longer the robbery,
tho thieving and plunder of tho two
years past. But, as it is, let the business
men-let the citizens generally-consider
how they are to meet the tax-gatherers
another year, and considering further
the heartless, rapacious and irresponsible
character of thoso who seek to retain the
State for another term, let them seo in
their straitened circumstances the argu?
ment, the need, tho demand for REFORM.
And seeing the need, tho . demand for
reform, let tho appreciation of their
duty come homo to them in all its force
and importance. That duty is to be
discharged to-day. Let us hope that the
entire vote of all Carolinians in sympathy
with reform will this day be brought out.
This effort, good and houest citizenship
calls for at our bauds. South Carolina
must bo saved. We do uot intend to
give the Stato np. Her bleeding wounds
appeal to u?. Her genial climate and
her teeming soil invito us to lier redemp?
tion. Let us read our duty iu our
hearts. By the memories of the past
and the hopes of the future-hy consi?
derations affecting our interests, our
safety and our honor-by nil that is near
and dear to us, let us spare no effort in
behalf of the State. Let evory voter
cast his ballot this day for economy, re?
trenchment and reform. Vote radicalism
down. ^Whatever it may bo in tho North,
here in South Carolina it is tho bane
of the commonwealth. It is associated
with fraud, corruption and robbery
with high taxes and plunderingofliciuls
with a hard present and a worse future.
"Tho coin is spurious, nail it down."
Vote for Judge CARPENTER, and Gene?
ral BUTLER, and for Reform. Hero in tho
very centre of the infamous ring of radi?
cals, nativo and foreign, raiso boldly
the standard of REFORM. Hero at the
headquarters of the plundering crew,
fly high tho flag of our principles aud
our hopes. Aud lot public opinion hold
him in scorn who shall this day meauly
sacrifica his family, his nauio und man?
kind, and fail to do his duty nt thc
polls. Lot us bear ia mind of what
blood we aro, and voto tho plunderers
down. On Trafalgar's great day, Lord
Nelson ran out his flag, upon which was
written, in bold characters, tho words
that have sinco becomoimmortal: "Eng?
land expects every mau to do his duty."
The suggestion wo may well this day
heed. For on this occasion, from one
end of South Carolina to tho other
from whero thc mountains riso in
grandeur tn where tho waters sparkle iu
thc sun-light, "SOUTH CAROLINA EXPECTS
EVERY MAN TO DO IIIS DUTY."

Gen, Hampton's Charges Against dov.
Gov. Scott having, in bis organ, tho
Republican, denied tho charges made by
Gen. Hampton in his letter to General
Butler, Messrs. Childs and Gibbes say;
We were present at tho interview held
with Gov. Scott on the 27th day of Oc?
tober, 1868. We state that the account
given by General Hampton, ia his letter
of tho 8th, to General Butler, is accurate
and correct. Li. D. CHILDS,
JAS. G. GIBBES.
Tho above was yestorday telegraphed
to tbe Charleston Courier, News and Re?
publican. General Hampton's word was
enough, but thi3 makes assurance doubly
TAMPERING WITH VOTES.-The follow?
ing paragraph is published for tho in?
formation of the voters and others:
"Under the Act of July li, 1870, any
person voting twice, will bo arrested by
tho United States Marshal, and tho p3r
son so offending is liable to arrest, and
not less than twelve 'months imprison?
ment. Any person who tampers with,
or attempts to tamper with, or threatens
to tamper with tbe ballot-boxes is liable
to the same penalty."
ONLY $130,000,000 FOB CUBA.-WO
clip the following from the New York
Negotiations are in progress which, if
successful, promise to result in tho im?
mediate independence of the Island of
Cuba. A short timo ago, Gen. Prim
sent a Spanish gentleman to Washing?
ton to make a proposition involving the
sale of Cuba by Spain. The agent was
authorized to offer the island for ?170,
000,000, but while tho negotiations wera
in progress the price was reduced 40,
000,000, and Cuban independence cnn
be purchased at ?130,000,000.
Tbe agent has received specific in?
structions to pledge tho government of
Spain to remove the Spanish soldiers
from the island when the United States
shall guarantee tho payment of the pur?
chase money. The subject was discussed
at a Cabinet meeting on Monday. It is
believed in Spanish circles that Gen.
Prim's proposition will bo aooepted, bot
the decision of tbe Cabinet is not known.
AMERICAN DISTURBANCE IN HONOLULU.
A correspondent writing from Honolulu
says Commander Truxton, of tho sloop
of-war Jamestown, requested Consul
Adamson to display bis colors at half
mast over tho consular office, out of re?
spect to the late Queen Dowager, but
Mr. Adamson declined to do so, on tho
ground that ho had-received no official
notice of the Queen's death from the
United States Minister rosident. Com?
mander Truxton immediately ordered
Lieutenant Cochran, with a guard of
marines, to put the Hag at half-mast, by
force if necessary, over the consular
office. Tho order was obeyed, the Con?
sul and Vice-Consul resisting. The
Honolulu press are indignnnt, and pro?
nounce tho invasion of Hawarian terri?
tory by au armed force of tho United
States a high-handed proceeding.

the meeting, and DuBoso Egleston, Esq.,

Wiunsboro, then introduced Col. J. P.
Thomas, as ono who did honor to South
Carolina, and whom Carolinians de?
lighted to bouor. For one hour and o
quarter Col. Thomas enchained tho at?
tention of bis audience by a very forci?
ble and beautiful address, and praises of
it are upon every lip. Whatever be
says, too, ever carries double weight,
owing to thc sincerity and manly dig?
nity of his character. From the begin?
ning to tho end of bis address, be was
encouraged by enthusiastic applause

A company of United States marines
paraded tho streets of Philadelphia on
Tuesday last, tho day of election, to en?
courage radical outrages and intimidate
Democratic voters. Tho Mayor prc
tested against such an interference on
tho part of tho Federal Government with
State elections, but no respeot was paid
to bis protest. These soldiers took pos?
session of one of tho voting places under
tho false plea of preserving order, in
plain violation of tho constitution of tho
United States. Talk about tho frcodom
