AHnud tae True Event."
VOL. VI-NO. 272.
OooTJMBiA, S. G., January 81, 1871.
Editor of the Phoenix-8m: As tho au?
thor of the article, in the Lexington Dis?
patch, of the 25th instant, signed "One
of the People," I ask for 8pnce in your
oolumns to reply to the rejoinder of Dr.
E. 8. J. Hayes, published in your issue
of tho 28th instant.
I cheerfully admit that I have unin?
tentionally misrepresented Dr. Hayes in
the positiou that the Constitution pro?
vided for tho election of County Audi?
tors and Treasurers, aud to thal extent
placed bim in a wrong position before
the public. I made tho statement from
memory, and confounded it vi th th?4
constitution ni provision for electing
Justices of the Peace and Const ables, ni
disclaim any design or intention what?
ever of misrepresenting him, which, nry.
second letter to the Dispatch, writtdn t?o
day previous to the publication of vt ne
Doctor's diatribe, will sufficiently^E?y.o.'
This grave Senator attributes myjBrroV]
to "lamentable ignorance" in olio' senV
tenoe, and to "a concatenation^jbf. fl?-;
liberate and malioious misrcp^escnta;
tions" in another. Tho Iogic0atfd, ;de-;
duotions are omineutly worthy ?'df tipo'
author. '. ?V .
But while I am now satisfied thatvtho
Constitution does not literally make pro?
vision for the election of County Audi?
tors and Treasurers, I om eqifally well
satisfied that its spirit is altogether jin
favor of the electiou of all officers of the
Government by tho people; and that
there does not, and cannot exist, a
stronger reason for their election tiPday,
than there did throe years ago, wh?nHhc
Senator admits that ho favored their
appointment. While it may bebrue, that
"what may hovo been wisdom then,
might bo folly now," it ia equtflly trut
that what was folly then, may dos foll j
now! .'} ' ?. j
The Senator's eager desire, now so sud?
denly manifested, to grant",overy righi
which ho baa heretofore denied his cdn
stituents, even to tho election of'.Cohnty
Auditor and Troasurer, is hardly--ii:
keeping with his bill no rv. , before thc
Senate for the appointment pt additional
Trial Justices, when the ol?ctiori'-of Jus?
tices of tho Peace and Constables-(tin
former an office for which TrialMustice;
were substituted) so clearly.required bj
the Constitution, has not been carried oui
by the Legislature. If, then, tho Con?
stitution docs not enjoin upon him tin
election of County Auditors and Tren
surers, why does ho provide a bill foi
their election, and, at tho same time, in
troduce another for the appointment o
additional Trial Justices, which are'onb
a swindle upou tho Constitution aud flu
people? The grave and learned Sbnato:
has another opportunity of answering
this query iu Latin I In this counectiot
I will say, that if his last display wo
intended for the eye of the great massfo
bin constituent?, he might as ivoll1i<tv<
translated it. They, as well/cs y th
"short-lived Congressman," who wa
once needed to place him in the poutioi
he now occupies, have never haipi rici
and influential friends among tho arin
tooracy^to procure them a collegium cdu
cation. It was even considered-j?'critn
to educate the great majorityJ of tin
Senator's constituents, in 'those days
and that ignorance still fostered by hie
in tho Legislature of as late ii s GS, i
now his most powerful means Of BUP.
port. .' p
That I let my "great light sl?ino in th
Club House for the niiReruble'pittnuc'c c:
eleven dollars per day," does not materia
ly niter the points now ut issue. M
presence iu the Club House subjecte
mo to the abuse and vilification of tl:
Senator's old friends generally, wh<
with himself, g:\ve their votes iu the L
gislature of '65 to Ux the odious featun
of the black code on tho colored peop]
of South Carolina, and, nt the sum
time, taxed their bends and dogs ?1 f
per annum to pay for such eminei
services iu the cause of oppression-i
attempting to muko a large majority <
his present constituents pariahs and ou
casts in the land of their birth. Tl:
Senator ought to know that "the mise
able pittance of eleven dollars per doy,
paid me us a member of that Con ve
tion, was in "bills receivable," aud th
I never approved of either tho arnon
or quality of tho pay. These bills were i
sued by authority of tho Senator's b
gas Legislutnro of '05, and were refuse
I believe, by the said members, for tin
valuable services-they preferring 85 p
day in greenbacks! Ha ought to koo
also, that these trashy bills they gave
were selling in the market at the timo
70 per cent, below gold, and that t
"eleven dollars" ho prates so large
about was, iu reulity, only three doll:
and thirty cents, when reduced to tho g(
standard. No member of tho miserai
Perry Johnson Convention or Legis
ture, who received five dollars per di
either in gold or in greenbacks for th
invaluable services, ought to suv c
word about tho pay of the Club Hoi
Convention. But men will differ iu th
tastes as woll as principle?.
In my communication to the Dispat
I said thot "tho body of which J
Hayes ia a member has just drawn soi
thing like 820.0?0 to pay themselves
extraordinary services on a Christi:
loaf of two weeks." This, he says,
false iu every particular." Lot us *
Dr. Hayes is a member of tho Logi
ture, which "body" is the General
seinbly. It adjourned on tho 22d
Docember, to meet on tho Ctn of Ja
nry, which it did, al night, counting
fourteen days. There aro about 153 m
bera to be paid, at SO per day. T
amount, including Lieutenant-Goveri
at 810 per day, 812,992 for fourteen d
I nm told by un officer who knows, I
there ure 135 attach?es to both Hou
atan average cost of 8-1 per day; i
for fourteen days, 87,500-total 820,
Then the room rent of committees, <
will, I think, show that "soinetbi
more than 820,000 wno paid for
recess. If I um not correct, I desii
bo corrected; but let it not be said
my statement was "fnlso in itWcry parti?
cular," while it can be proved otherwise.
And now tho Senator cnn quoto from
Goldsmith onco m?re, while tho public
will decido ichica is tho dog "that died."
Now, .oiie word in reference to thc
$5,OOO.fpjr three months-services of the
"short-lived Congressman." I was elect?
ed in .April;-?18G8, took; my scat in July,
attended-tho. opeuing-of two called ses?
sions ;?h' September and October, and
closed .my term in. March following,
drawing at tho rate of 85,000 per annum
'from tho "dato" of election. Is there nny
.crime in that?. I presume that tho Se
uiiio'r would "riot havo seriously objected
to'?yen the shortness of tbo term or the
length ai thc pay. I bold that it is bet?
ter tb.- live n-Bhort time than not to live
at.nlh-'Wbich the.Senator fully endorses,
I think, .when ho says of himself "/ still
, It is a source of gratification to me to
know tlfat I was at ono time tho choice
"oi tho people for that position, without
using-either whiskey or money to influ
euco their opinion of my merits. To
the latest moment of life, I shall esteem
it an honor ito havo been a member of
tho Club Honso Convention and of Con?
gress, to aid in giving my native Stato
a'free. Constitution and unite again upon
terms of freedom and political equality
thc fragments of a bleeding, Bullering
My friends said that I could bo re?
nominated for a certain amount, which
they oven offered to pivy, but I unhesitat?
ingly refused to entertain tho proposi?
tion or. accept tho nomination upon such
condition^. Believing then, as 1 do noir,
that ho ?who buys a vote will 3ell ouo, I
preferred to bo a "fihort lived Congress?
man" to being a longer lived one, ut Ibo
sacrifice of principle in corrupting my
constituents and degrading myself. If I
had scoured the nomination I might pos
sibly havo beeu elected by something
liku B minority of 3,500 votes, even if I
liad failed to secure the Sei tor's suf?
frage. This might bave constituted the
honor vi a longer lived Congressman,
llllt who would not prefer to che curlier?
iud even to bo taunted for being dead?
[f "grace" fails the Senator iu the fur
ther prosecution of his great work, ho
?viii doubtless know where to find a sub
ditute that never fails. Very respect?
fully yours, &c.,
ExoiiEnANT HKAI.TU is a blessing vouch?
safed to few. Even those who havo been fa
rorod by nature with strong constitutions and
rigorous frames aro apt to neglect tho pro?
motions ueeoseary to preserve these precious
mdowmCHtS. Indeed, as a rule, thc moro
lealtby and robust a man is, thc moro liber?

y weak and feeble to know that they can be j

>f the moans which seionco has placed at
heir disposal, as to have a much better chance
if long life, and exempt iona from disease and
iain, than the most athletic of their fellows
vho aro foolish enough to suppose themselves
uvubierable, and act accordingly.
lt is not too much to say that moro than
