Wo invite attention to the able artiele
of oar correspondent "Calchas." It
will be found to repay perusal and to
invest the subject of our State troubles
with due gravity.
Genuine va. Fa?nelo Republicanism.
Tho types made us, on yesterday, do?
oroo tho death of Republicanism os es?
sential to the welfare of the State and
theooantry. Radicalism-which we re?
gard pseudo-Republicanism-was the
term that we penned. In gena inc Re?
publicanism we have faith; faith tout to
this men will oome when the intelligence
and virtue of the masses shall enable
man to approach the last analysis of go?
vernmental forms. And, in onr judg?
ment, the essence of Republicanism con?
sists iu thorough representation of pro?
perty as well as numbers. It is not De?
mocracy run mad. It is not the plebis?
cite of France. It is not the present
universal suffrage of this land, which ig?
nores the rights of miuorities and en?
thrones mere numerical force. Rutas
respects the fruit of toil and industry, it
is security to property, moderato taxa?
tion and a proper application of the pub?
lic moneys. As respects numbers, it is
proportional representation which, after
all, is bat thorough representation. It
is government limited by constitutional
forms and observances. It is liberty
without license. It is protection to per?
sona and property, and a self-govern?
ment springing from the just influences
of a virtuous and intelligent population.
Republicanism, as understood by the
"fathers of the Republic," is a good
word. But, as used and understood in
its present party sense, it is an evil thing.
And this it is that we hold must be OOD
demncd by the popular voioe in order
that the country may be put upon a more
THE COUNTY TREASURER.-"We are in?
formed by parties from Columbia that
?. M. Rose, the County Treasurer for
this County, who left here uuder a mili?
tary escort on Friday last, before day?
light, arrived in Columbia that after?
noon, and on Saturday turned up miss?
ing, without having accounted to the
State Treasurer for the moneys collected
by him. One statement is to the effect
that he is in concealment somewhere in
Columbia, and that the money has been
placed in the hands of his father to be
returned to the Treasury. Another is,
that he bas absconded, and that this
statement is thrown out as a temporary
delusion, to throw parties in search of
him off the trail. The Governor has
given his attention to the matter, and
we doubt not will do whatever may be
necessary in the promises. In tho mean?
time, a delegation from this County
waited on the Governor and obtained a
promise that reasonable time would be
given for tax-payers to make payments
without incurring the twenty per cent,
penalty. A now County Treasurer will
be appointed this week, and notice will
be given when tlip office is ready to re?
sumir business. - Yorke Ute Enquirer.
Referring to the cases in Court, the
Edgefield Advertiser says:
The Indictment in the case of the
Statu against Winslow Hamilton, for the
killing of Capt. George Butler, was not
given to the grand jury.
As regards the trial of tho negroes
charged with the murder of the Rev.
Mr. Harrison, nothing could be done.
The Magistrate hud not returned the in?
quest papers, the witnesses were not in
attendance, and the authorities generally
who should have attended to the pre?
liminaries of the case seemed to be at
fault. All this is culpably wrong. The
murder of Mr. Harrison was most fla?
grant, and its punishment called for
energy and promptness on all sides.
PENNSYLVANIA KU KLTQCES.-The New
York Journal of Commerce advises Radi?
cal Congressmen who are so worried over
imaginary Ku Klux disturbances in the
South, to look at the outrages in tho
mining districts of Pennsylvania-a Re?
publican State. The editor says, rebuke
that bitter sectional prejudice which in?
stigates Congress to pass laws exclusively
for the repression of outlawry at the
South, and shuts its eyes to a worse state
of things in Pennsylvania. If itisright
and necessary for the Federal Govern?
ment to crush out Ku Kluses, it would
seem to be equally so for the samo power
to put down Buckshots and Mollie Ma?
guires. The Federal power has no busi?
ness intervening in States, however, un?
less called upon by their authorities to
givo them aid.
A GOOD ORDER.-We are reliably in?
formed that Governor Scott has issued
an order requiring tho militia to turn
over all State arms now iu their posses?
sion. These arms have undoubtedly
berni the cause of all the troubles in tho
upcountry, as reported by tho confer?
ence that met the Governor on last
Monday night in Columbia. Wo hopo
tho troubles are now ended. But should
tho two races continuo to raise difficul?
ties, it will, without doubt, bebo the
press of the Stat?.- Winnsboro News.
GUNS TURNED OVER.-AH tho arms
latoly in tho hands of the militia of this
County have been turned over to Col. S.
B. downey and Sheriff Duvnll. This is
a movo in the right direction, and we
hopo this good work will go on all over
tho State. - Winnsboro News.

To Hia J?xottiiLKNO? Ooyj?B^OB .Sooxx:
It mnai byappa^nt tb your ExoeBeoby,
as it is to?inking^nen giberaily^b?ougb
out the State, that tho adjournment of
tho General Assembly marks an era iu
tho history of South Carolina-not in
the adjournment itself, but in tho atti?
tude of affairs and of publia opinion
upon questions of vital interest to tho
common weal, and nt the same timo to
the administration of which you uro the
It is to speak to you in earnestness
aud candor of this new attitude of af?
fairs that I have ventured to address you
Had I the ear of your Excellency, I
should speak to you privately instead of
thus publicly; but I am not of the num?
ber of those whom you have recently
honored with your invitation to counsel.
But the assurances that you have given
to some of our best citizens, and the re?
cent evidences of your sincerity in giv?
ing these assurances, have gone far to
decide me in asking your attention to
what I have to bay. Your Excellency
will herein see that 'uy end involves fa?
vor to yourself, while its grand motive
is safety to South Carolina.
The new attitude of affairs that I have
referred to is, briefly, this: The public
mind in this State hos fixed upon a line,
severely and clearly drawn, between the
State Government in general which you
administer aud certaiu officers in that
Government. The entire session of the
Genoral Assembly just closed, the re?
ports published as a part of its proceed?
ings, certaiu facts that have transpired
in it, have all, taken together, led us to
identify oertaiu mon as guilty. That
intelligent public opinion demands one
of two things-cither that these guilty
meu be removed or else that they be al?
lowed an opportunity to prove their in?
I will now show you by example ex?
actly what I mean. Your Excellency
will do me the favor to observe that it
does not matter for the main issue I
make whether this public opinion is
right or wrong. Its tv; J.S ?a icc is the prime
Our people-and in using this word I
will show you that I mean to make no
distinction of race or of political party
our people believe that Mr. Parker, the
State Treasurer, is dishonest, and is ma?
naging his office badly and to the detri?
ment of the State finances. Involved
with Mr. Parker, in the same category,
aro also Mr. Neagle, the Comptroller
General, and Mr. Kimpton, the Finan?
cial Agent of the State in New York.
But, in order to simplify the matter, I
beg leave to take one-Mr. Parker-as
au illustration; and I propose to show
your Excellency some reasons for the
opiuiou in question, and then to point
out some of tho inevitable results. We
are now free from tho excitements inci?
dent to an election campaign, and eau
discuss these matters, which involve the
safety of the State itself as well as that
of all the political parties, iu calmness
aud iu kindness. Let me repeat that 1
am perfectly free to accord to your Ex?
cellency a sincere desire to have the Go?
vernment properly administered, and
especially to have the abuses of our
finnnces, now uotorious, corrected.
Your Excellency will bear with me
while I repeat that I do not propose to
prove that Mr. Parker is dishonest, or
guilty of anything wrong; but to show
that such opinion prevails and should
prevail amoug our people.
1. There ?B an apparent discrepance
between Mr. Parker's reports and those
of both Mr. Kimpton aud Mr. Neagle;
in tho former case a discrepance of
2. In the reports for Mav, 1870, an
item of $7,100.91 gold in Mr.'Kimptou'a
report appears in Mr. Purker's report at
3. Senator Arnim calls attention to thc
fact that the amount returned by the
Comptroller-General to the Financial
Agent is $540.293.79, while Mr. Parkei
stales the same as only $504,293.79.
4. Senator Arnim farther informs ne
that, although tho Comptroller-Genera!
includes in his list of creditors of the
State the following items, to wit: Six pei
cent, bonds, (18G9) Land Commission,
$200,000; six per cont, bonds, (1870]
Land Commission, $500,000; yet Mr!
Parker makes no report of any proceedf
of tho said bonds having been receivet
at bis office, but actually charges the
State Treasury as follows, to wit: Laue
5. Senator Leslie, who is thought tc
bo in a position to know, has repeatedly
thrown out tho idea that Mr. Parker ii
G. Senator Nash, during the campaigt
last fall, is well known to have Raid, a
Gadsden, that he had heard Mr. Parkei
accused, iu your Excellency's presence
of fraud in the theu famous Schley-laut
albur with the Land Commission; ant
I thai Mr. Parker did not dare to deny th?
accusation. I am aware how the mattet
was finally made to stand upou Mr
Parker's books, and upou those of tin
Land Commissioner; but your Excellon
cy can need no reminding of the scent
that occurred when Mr. Parker was firs
summoned upon thia matter before thi
other members of the Advisory Board.
7. I have reasons for believing tba
your Excellency has receutly Lad occa
siou to remiud Mr. Parket* of tho nex
poi ut I have to make. It ia the notori
ou8 fact that Mr. Parker is now i
wealthy man, whereas, upon his electioi
to tho office he now holds, ho was ai
moneyless as tho most of us, who an
destitute through the profligate equau
dering of our State resources by suol
officers as Mr. Parker himself. Upoi
this point, Capt. J. W. Collins, of Beau
fort, S. C., under date of May 29, 1370
soys: "Since 18G5, I have held a olain
against bim [Mr. Parker] for severa
hundred dollars, whioh my attorney hai
settled recently for thirty cents on thi
dollar." This Capt. Collins describe
himself as "a thorough Republican
?nd is the" mao who says thai he "enlist
ed this Niles G. Parker io the First Mas?
sachusetts Ga valry Regiment, st Haver
hill, Massachusetts, where ho [Mr. Park?
er] bsd been the unsuccessful proprietor
of a restaurant and bar." Capt. Collins
gives his address as Post Office Box 33,
Beaufort, S. C. His letter containing
the above statements appeared ia The
N-Vinn newspaper of New York.
8. From wbat the public in South Ca?
rolina know of Mr. Parker through that
officer himself and through Captain Col?
lins, as above quoted, it is more thau
probable, I beg lenvo to suggest, that
Mr. Parker is one of those men whom
his Honor Judge Orr once characterized
as "men who do not, and never did, en-,
joy public confidence; men who nre
ignorant, corrupt, dishonest, and unfit, by
reason oj' (heir early associations, for de?
There are numerous other points
similar to these, which I might give, but
these, I trust, are sufficient to explain
the existence of tho public opinion in
The effects of this opinion must of ne?
1. To impair the credit of the State.
2. To make your administration odi?
3. To make the Republican party infa?
4. To retard or prevent the collection
of the State taxes.
5. To foster discontent in general,
which may, and probably will, lead to '.
un organized resistance to tho authority
of such officers as are in any way identi?
fied with Buoh abuses.
I am quite prepared to believe that
your Excellency is ready to take all
legitimate steps to avert any and all of
these effects. In venturing to suggeBt
something that may bo done to better
this state of affairs, I need hardly fur?
ther urge my entire freedom from any
desire to appear officious or obtrusive
with advice not called for; nor need I be
misunderstood as intimating that this
oue is tho only or even the greatest oue
of the three or four grand causes of tho
difficulties before us-difficulties which
all good citizens joiu your Excellency io
deploring. Nor need I avoid intimating
that, iu my opinion, your Excellency has
far more to gain by exposing f rands and
fraudulent officers, relatively speaking,
ihau the State has.
I am quite aware that your Excellency
lins not the power to remove an officer
elected by the people; nor is the removal
of Mr. Parker the step I am about to
suggest. I would know him guilty be?
fore I could desire his removal.
That which your Excellency can do,
however, is to appoint an expert aicount
ant; to place in his hands tho books of
the Treasurer, the Comptroller-General
and the Financial Agent; to get such ac?
countant's report of the books of these
three officers, especially those of Mr.
Purker; and to publish the result. The
accountant must bo a man favorably
kilowa throughout our State; and such
a man can be found in Charleston if not
Tba effect of this step would be either
to relieve Mr. Parker of a load of odium
that rests upou him, and thus remove a
great source of discontent, or else to
brand him with that infamy which he
deserves und which, as I have attoinpted
to show, is bringing disgrace upou the
State your Excellency governs, upon the
party your Excellency represents, and
upon your Excellency as au individual
us an individual so long, und so long
only, as your Excellency takes no step to
draw the lum of demurkatiou between
tho Governor uud that wholesale plun?
dering of the public treasury which is
lust making this unhappy Commonwealth
a hissing aud a by-word among all hon?
If Mr. Parker bas done no wrong, he
ought to be the first to demand this step;
but if he ia guilty, your Excellency
would hardly care, wo think, to share the
infamy with him. But, as things have
resulted, the public do fix upou tbe State
government, which your Excellency rep?
resents, this odium; and what I have
ventured to suggest is that your Excel?
lency oweB it to yourself, to your office,
to your party, aud to truth, to throw the
odium where it belongs. If this or
something tantamount to it be not done
-such is tito nature of mau, when
smarting under a gigantic wrong-whe?
ther it be right or not does not affect the
result-tho people will hold your Excel?
lency to be an accessary after the fact, in
that nuder the shield of yoursileuce the
crime has boon allowed to go uuwhipt of
justice, and tho culprit to daily Haunt
the glitter of his ill-gotten wealth in the
eyes of a wronged, oppressed, indignant
and intelligent people.
This attitude of affairs is grave to the
last degree; und our people look with in?
tonso interest, not unmixed with hope,
to tho course your Excellency has just
taken in calling to your counsel the lead?
ing citizens of our State. Wo trust,
moreover, that neither you nor they will
underrate thc gravity, not to say the so?
lemnity, of the matter before you. Wo
trust that neither you nor they will, for
oue moment, forget that this people have
twice gone to war as a remedy for
wrongs fur less grievous and galling thnn
those which they now suffer.

TUE EXCITEMENT LAST WEEK.-Ou
Wednesday of last week, some excite?
ment prevailed in town, arising from a
rumor to the effect that on the day pre?
vious a collision occurred near Carmel
Hill, in Chester County, between a com?
pany of Scott's negro militia of that
County and a party of whites, in which
a number of each had boeu killed. Late
in tho afternoon, information wa3 re?
ceived by Sheriff Glenn that a company
of armed negro militia from Chester was
advaucing stealthily upon this place,
avoiding public roads, and making their
way through the woods and fields. Tho
object of this movement by the negroes
being unknown, the Sheriff properly
summoned a posse of niuo citizens, and
immediately went iu the direction the
negroes were said to be approaching,
and about a half mile from the Court
House met a number, consisting of six?
teen privates and ono "commissioned"
officer. Ou coming up with this band,
tho Sheriff inquired tho object of their
movements and why they wero marching
in the directiou of Yorkville; to which
they replied that they wished to reach
the towu in order to secure protection.
Tho Sheriff then told thom to lay down
their arm j and they should be protected,
wheronpon thc negroes at once placed
themselves under protection of the She?
riff, who returned with them to towo,
aud as a precautionary measure placed
them in the jud during the night, a
squad of United States soldiers acting as
guard arouud the prison. At sun-rise
next morning, tho negroes were liber?
ated by tho Sheriff, when they availed
themselves of the protecting care of the
captain commanding at this place, hy
whom they wero retained four days and
permitted to depart. It is proper to add
that tho negro officer said to tho Sheriff
that not a gun bad been fired by bis
company after entering York County,
nor bad they boon attacked or molested
in any way.- Yorkville Enquirer.
