Glory ?"S *" ISkalV S ti u mc.
Tho radical trumpeters who ore now
blowing their brazen horns over such
snooesaea as they claim to have won,
seem to be unaware of the inferences
whioh decent .people everywhere will
draw from their triumphs. A party
whioh supports Buob political exponents
as Whitemore, Parker, Scott & Co.,
may well keep silent, even in tbe hour
of victory. To do otherwise, is to glory
in shamo. -They may flourish liko green
bay tfees-a la the wicked. But their
triumphs will be short-lived. A just and
enlightened publio opinion will yet
sweep them from power.
THE RECENT EIJECTIONS AT THE NORTH.
-The Cincinnati Enquirer, commentiug
on the result of the elections in that State,
It is painful to reflect that tho Demo?
cratic defeat in this State is owing sim?
ply to their own neglect, and not to tho
strength p?t forth by tho adversary.
Politically there is no change in tho dele?
gation. But for the outrageous appor?
tionment, we should have bad eight or
nine, at least, of the delegation.
Tho returns from Pennsylvania indi?
cate a Republican majority in tho State,
on the Congressional vote, of 1,072. It
appears that eleven Democrats, and ono
independent Republican ohoseu over the
regular Republican nominee, wero elect?
ed, and that the delegation is about
equally divided. There is a Democratic
gain of Aye members. The Republican
majority On the? popular vote, which was
nearly 29,000 for Grout for President in
November? has sunk down to 1,072. The
Dem?crata claim a majority. This vic?
tory, too,'' bas been won in despite of the
fact that' in Philadelphia tho United
States marines, under tho orders of the
United States Marah al, seized upon tho
polls, and, by the terror of tho bayonet,
deprived thousands of Democrats of the
right of suffrage.
Our Democratic friends in Indiana
have done splendidly. They Corry tho
State ticket by 2,500 majority. They
have a majority in the Legislature on
joint ballot certain, if not a working ma?
jority in both branches. This is a won?
derful suooe83, when it is remembered
that the legislative apportionment was
made by the Republicans with thu idea
that, so great was the gerrymander, such
a result was impossible. The Supreme
Court for six years will bo composed of
Democratic Judges. They have five
Congressmen ont of eleven-a gain of
one, and they came within four votes of
gaining another. In another district,
misrepresented by Mr. Shanks, they are
barely 200 behind. Tho Hon. Daniel
W. Voorhees, who in 1868 had but 12S
majority, has now over 1,300. In the
Third District, Judge Holman iucrenscs
his majority of 762 to 2,300. In tuc Se?
cond District, Mr. Kerr has 6,000 ma?
jority, and in tho First Mr. Niblack is
re-elected by a largely increased vote.
Thus carrying the State ticket, tho State
Judiciary, almost tieing the Congres?
sional delegation, our Democratic friends
iu the Hoosier State have good reason
TIONAII REPRESENTATION IN MISSOURI.
The St. Louis Republican, a Democratic
journal, calls attention to this measure
of reform, whioh in Illinois und Penn?
sylvania, has been already somewhat put
upon its trial. Tho Republican says:
.'The first Americun constitution^
which baa adopted the principle of mi- *
nority representation being that of Illi?
nois, tho system proposed in it deserves
attentive examination. It is ns follows:
Thc general assembly shall apportion
the State every ten yeure, beginning
with tho year 1871, by dividing the po?
pulation of the State, ns ascertained by
the Federal census, by tho number fifty?
one, and the quotient shall be thu ratio
of representation in tho Senate. The
State shall be divided into fifty-one Se?
natorial Districts, which shall be formed
of contiguous and compact territory,
bounded by County lines, and contain
as nearly as practicable au equal number
of inhabitants; but no District shall con?
tain less than four-fifths of tho Senato?
rial ratio. Counties containing not less
than the ratio and three-fourths may Le
divided into separate Districts, aud sb ni
bo entitled to two Senators, and to ono
additional Senator for each number of
inhabitants equal to tho ratio contained
by such Cpuntios in oxcoss of twico tho
number of said ratio. Thus tho princi?
ples of tho old territorial system of re?
presentation arc preserved us to tue So
note, each District electing ono Senator
by a majority or plurality of votes. But
in 1872, nt tho first general election after
that Senatorial appointment, tho House
of Representatives shall cousist of three
times the number of tho members of thc
Senate, threo to bo chosen from each
Senatorial District. Each qualified voter
may cast as many votes for one candidate
as Ibero aro Representatives to bo elect?
ed, or may distribute tho same, or equal
parts thereof, among thc candidatos, as
ho shall seo fit, and tho candidates high?
est in votes shall bo declared elected.
Tho systems of election to each house
thus constitute a cautious and partial
application of tho principles of minority
repr?sentation, and, doubtless, this is
tho best method of givi; g it a fair trial.
Tho peoplo will be enabled to compare
the results of it in tho nouso of llopro
sontativea with thc continued effoots of
the old system in thc Senate."

ticularo of the coriolis disturbance which
occarrja in tba? County 'on the ty)thi
Th&day before, ''(the lfc?i.j atf the
general election, and for months previ?
ous, the white people had been subjected
i ) an organized system of disparagement,
abuse, and threats of violence to person
and property, which had produced that
feverish state of feeling incident to a
deep sense of outrage and injustice.
For weeks, whole families bad not un?
dressed for bed, so great was the appre?
hension of midnight negro risings,
burnings and butcheries. While the
United States troops were here, the
souud of their reveille and tattoo was
considered as the proclamation of pro?
tection to unarmed whites and their de?
fenceless women and children. The
chief actor and agent in all this was one
notorious Joe Crews, a native citizen of
tho County, who has always been a man
of doubtful character, but who, after tho
emancipation of tho slaves, attached
himself, as a renegade, to the uegroes,
and by deceiving aud misleading them,
and abusing his own race, had himself
elected to the convention and then to
the .Legislature of 1868, and was a can?
didate again for re-election. Knowing
that he was entitled to no consideration
without oflice, he resolved to have him?
self elected at all hazards; and knowing
that by a fair election in Laurens, he
would bo beaten by tho Conservatives,
who are clearly in tho majority, tho said
Crews, with two or three subordinate
under-strappers, assisted by the consta?
bulary force, degraded here from officers
to keep the peace to legalized instigators
of discord, riot and strife, ono of whom
was a candidato for Probate Judge, had
worked the poor negroes into a frenzy ol
excitement about the election and in?
tense hatred to the white man. It cac
be proved by hundreds of good men,
that in his speeches to them, in ever}
hole and corner of the County, he made
tho most incendiary appeals, marching
from one point to another, by night auc
day, with armed companies of negroes,
insulting, outragiug and putting in ter
vjror the peaceable white citizens of tin
country. Ho told them, in hiB speeches
that they had tho State Government
and they must keep it or die; that it wa:
necessary for their liberty and safety
that ho should be elected; that he hai
put arms in their bands, and they mus
use them; that they had Ibo torch, am
"matches were cheap," and they mus
burn and destroy; that all over fifteei
years of age could vote, for be passei
tho law himself, Sec. At Laurens, hi
occupied an old, dilapidated building
opposite tho court house, familiarl;
known as "Tin Pot Alley." Here
flanked by negro stores in the building
he had his office of Trial Justice, also o
Census Taker, also of Deputy Uuitei
States Marshal, (without any cominis
sion,) and also of Commissioner of E!ec
tiou, and here ho had a perfect armor
of gnus, believed to bo a thousan
stand, with accoutrements and ammuui
tiou of the most improved pattern
These were tho arms of the State, lei
under bis absolute control. Besides thi
armory in "Tin Pot," be had quite
number of guus at his house, which wn
some distance np tho street, and hi
barn, within the curtilage of his h oust
and commanding thc main street, wr
regularly fortified aud loopholed, an
also stored with arms. Thus this ma
set himself up with arms and fortifie;
tious in the very heart of the town c
Laurens. Ho constantly had arme

County, to ghartl these headquarter
This guard, or drunken negro militii

?. The said Crowe, notwithstanding 1
was a candidato himself, was, amoug h
many other offices, Commissioner i
Election, and bad tho control not on!
of tho arrangements for thc electioi
but of tho boxes. He did not opt
boxes at the different precincts of tl
County, as had been dono in form
times, but established four at tho Cou
House nuder thc guns of his fortifie
tions, aud one of them actually in h
lower arsenal of "Tin-Pot." He e
prcsslyand indignantly refused, altliouf
applied to by a mixed committoo
whites and blacks, to allow two men i
the Reform party to be present at tl
polls to prevent frauds, as agreed upc
hy tho leaders ol the two parties. Thi
equipped and prepared for all sorts
frauds, the poor deluded negroes we
summoned peremptorily by him from tl
remotest corners of tho County to vc
at Laurens. They did como in gre
numbers, and such glaring, bare-fac
frauds were enacted in thc face of da
as, it is believed, wero never committ
on this continent before! Crews h
before exhorted tho negroes to tiri
their women in men's clothes, and vc
them. If they did so on this occasic
it has not yet been discovered; but it
ascertain as anything can bc, that ma
boys under ago did vote, and some
them three or four times. This can
abundantly proved, and many nan:
have already been returned, to be :
dieted for perjury. Wc have heard
one estimate tho number of negri
present at more than a 1,000 or 1,200,
thc outside, and yet they claim to hi
voted that day, at tho Court Hon
1,900 votes! A more bold and iufauu
fraud, wo solemnly believe, was ne1
committed in tho history of electioi
The peopo were coustautly approheus

Once during tho election day, t
negroes, without provocation, but inf
enced by tho appeals which had bt
addressed to them, seeing their numb
and feeliug probably tho pride of pow
commenced arming, and tho white p
plc to form in a small but compaot m
to resist attack. A bloody rencontre i
Crews' hon^ ari^
to put down their arms, that they were
the weaker race, and that if they pro?
voked a collision, they would go under.
This is but a feeblo outline of .the con?
dition of affairs and the Btate of public
feeling produced thereby on the morning
after tho election when the disturbance
commenced. The armed negroes and
constabulary about thc lower arsenal at
"Tin Pot" seemed to be exultant, and
some white men were standing about in
tho square opposite, wheu one of the
coustabulary aud a citizen were sceu to
be engaged ina fight near "Tin Pot."
Tho crowd began to gather around, when
some man's pistol in his breast coat pock?
et went off accidentally, and immediate?
ly there was received a volley from tho
doors and wiudows of the headquarters
at "Tin Pot." The cry ran liku light?
ning that the negroes had begun tho war.
Seeing the orowd iu the arseuul, both at
thc lower and upper windows, opeuing
a fire upon tho people in the public
square, the citizens who happcued to be
near tho place at the instant returned
tho fire with pistols, and rushed upon
"Tin Pot," broke down the door, routed
thc armed negroes, and took possession
of the arms there deposited. The armed
negroes delivered several volleys, shoot?
ing through tho weather-boardiug as
they retreated. The occupants of the
place, however, mado off as rapidly as
possible through the back yards and
streets. This is all that is certainly
known. Tho Court was then in session,
Judge Vernon presiding. All this oc?
curred in full view of the Court room.
Some of tho balls fired from "Tin Pot"
struck the Court Houso. Judgo Vernon
instantly ordered Sheriff Jones to raise
a posse and command tho peaae, to take
the publie arms and deposit them in the
Sheriff's office for safe keeping, and to
appoint a hundred or moro special con?
stables to keep tho peace. This was
done, the arms taken possession of and
In the affair ot "Tin Pot" two white
men and a little boy of the citizens were
wounded; and of the armed negroes, ouo

We have not heard full particulars,
but it is stated that some miles below,
on the railroad, the bodies of Bill Riley,
colored, und of Volney Powell, a white
mau, a member of the constabulary
force aud candidate for Probate Judge,
who was in tho affray, was fouud with
their arms some time after. We h- vc
also heard that two or three other ne?
groes wero killed at different points.
The people of the County, hearing of the
affair at the Court House, aud doubtlesi
heariug exaggerated accounts of it, cami
in great numbers, probably 2,000 01
2,500, to tho scene of tho conflict, bul
the ?Sheriff, under tho orders of Judge
Vernon, sent them to their homos. Th?
grand jury, then in session, made a pre

and urged the authorities to remov?
from the Couuty the public arms-tin

man can deny this statement. Thi

bound to express, in the strongest terms,
their apprehension of the consequences
if these nrms aud ammunitions uro

citizens, whilst the rest of tho commu?

It is believed that the announcement
of the intention to put public arms iuto

munity and to leave the other unarmed
hus created tho restless and uneasy feel?

was the underlying causo of tho people
