COLUMBIA, S C.
Tuesday MorniuR, March 7.1871.
ARE THEY TO BE OVERSLAUGHED?-It
ia said that the Southern Radicals are
clamorous at Washington for a share of
tho spoils of Congress. They want to
be recognized in the organization of
that body. But, we are told, there is a
feeling among the Northern Badicals
somewhat opposed to their recognition.
Tho vice-President and chief officers of
the Senate, as well as the Speaker, Clerk,
and other offioials of the House, are all
from the North and West, and do not
seem to remember that there is n South,
when the spoils are to be distributed.
This neglect the Southern Bads aro dis?
posed to resent, and intimate that there
will be a row in tho camp, if they should
be overlooked in the distribution of
patronage to be made by the new Con?
gres?. We hope they will be, and that
the North and West will monopolize all,
having no desire to see men rewarded
for treason to their own kindred and
