COXUTOLA, s. c.

Saturday Korain K, March 24,1871.
7 o New York 7Sme$ ia maoh concern?
ed about "Southern sentiment." In its
issue of March 20, it undertakes to give
the "opinions of prominent papera and
politicians"-referring to this journal
and the letter of Gov. Ferry recently
published in these columns. It gives
extraots from various prominent newspa?
pers in the South, and the conclusion
that it seems to arrive at ia that there is
"on unpleasant and unwelcome state of
feeling in the Southern States." It goes
even further and throws ont the sugges?
tion that the people of the South are
. preparing for another issuo with tho Ge?
neral Government. We propose to deal
candidly and fairly with the Times. Wo
'shall not -churgo it with socking to accom?
plish party ends by firing the Northern
?mind and reviving those sharp and bitter
'feelings born of war. We shall assume
that tho Times desires to interpret cor?
rectly the s tato of feeling in the South?
ern States. We soy to the Times timi its
views,, as respects the Sonth, are errone?
ous. Could the Tim?s realize the trae
?toto of affairs in Sonth Carolina, result
ting from political corruption and mis?
rule, it would understand that what it
considers the exhibition of hostility to
ihe Government,1 is ? very mnoh allied to
.the Instincts of self .preservation. "Sholl
dt bo penco or W?r," ia a grave question,
and we feel its momentous gravity. But
there is a graver question still, that
comes np before ontraged communities,
and this is: "Shall it be life or death."
The Times may rest assured, that if it
falls to note tho existence of a pleasant
and welcome state of feeling in the
Southern States, the "ex-inBnrgent" peo?
ple thereof are not properly and justly
to be held responsible. This unsatisfac?
tory condition of publia affairs is due to
the regime that the Times assisted to fix
apon these Southern States-whioh re?
gime is violative of all those principles of
government that were formerly esteemed
the peculiar property of the citizens of
this Republic. If the governmental
pyramid is made to stand upon its apex,
need it excite surprise that it fails to
stand firm, and requires extraneous
propping? If there be violence and
lawlessness, under the forms of law, need
it excite wonder that violence should
?rise outside of law? If the Times
would reach the pi imary cause of South?
ern disorders, let it understand that offi?
cial corruption breeds trouble, and that
-official lawlessness is the parent of pub
lio violence. Tho tronblo comes from
the political regime al present in power
not because it is "Republican," or "Ra?
dical," but because in the main it is ig?
norant, corrupt and extravagant, and
non-representatire of tho property and
much of the virtue and intelligence of
The Times and its aiders and abettors
make this mistake: It is not the "ex-in
?urgent" people of the South who need
"reconstruction," but it is the Radical
'-State Governments that need revision
--and reform. The Times wants to know
."when there will be peace at the South."
There will be peace when this revision
or reform shall tuko place. If the Times
desires to hasten the day, let it urge Con?
gress to improve its work at once. Un?
less this is done, our cotemporary must
await the period when the work of re?
form shall bo doue by home influences
and home efforts.
We desire to correct tho impressions
of the New York Times upon another
point. It stales that "tho political
character of the South is one of intenso
intolerance"-that "provision is mado
for Northern capital, energy nnd perse?
verance, but none for Northern opinion."
We do not admit that this allegation is
well founded. It so happens that at tho
South the term "Radical" or "Republi?
can" is so often allied with personal or
political corruption, that the terms have
Aleen brought into disrepute here iu tho
.-minds of tho great mass of intelligent
peruous. But there is no special intole?
rance of honest political opinions.
Whatever may be said to tho contrary,
the white people of the South extend a
hearty welcome to Northern men settling
in our midst. So far from there boing a
disposition to exclude Northern settlers,
We know that there is a feeling of par?
tiality for such accessions to our popula?
tion; Aud we very muoh doubt if any
Northern settler in South Carolina can
lie found to complain of nny ill treat?
ment at tho hands of Southern men.
We behove that tho South is to be
largely benefittod by Northern emigra?
tion, aud wo aro ready to provide for
their "opinio?is," as well as their "capi?
tal, energy and perseverance." Let a
Northern man come aud identify himself
with ns and our fortunes, and wo shall
be found to trust bira for his "opinions."
We know very well that ho will bo found
to demand hs wc do au honest, fair and
eoonomioal Qovornmoat, anti one that
puta the State apon o prosp?rons and
honorable career. Tho Times saja ip
effect, that it ?ffers us peace bot we re?
ject it. We have to say that wo caja
safely affirm that tho Sontheim people
earnestly want honest peace. .The great
aspiration of the Sooth is for peace.
Oor people T?snt to restore their for?
tunes-improve their home s-build their
churches and school-houses-und edu?
cate their young. If they do not enjoy
peace, it is because of the grievous po?
litical burdens that have been laid upon
them, darkening their future, and de?
priving them of tho fruits of honest aud
hard toil. Tho Times says "tho people
of the States lately in rebellion are mere?
ly iuvited to au equal participation iu
the Government." This privilege, the
Times states, we aro responsible for not
enjoying. Wo differ with the Times.
All the said people want is an "equal
participation in the Government." This
we have neither at Washington nor at
Columbia. With taxation without rep?
resentation-with a large portion of tho
people of the State absolutely without
representation in the General aud the
Stato Government-we aro told that
"ex-insurgents" are responsible for the
faot that peace does not prevail iu the
Southern Sta tas! Let the Times review
STARTUNG REVELATIONS.-The Wash?
ington correspondent of the Savannah
Republican furnishes foots which should
awako the whole country from its slum?
bers. Millions of the publio revouuo,
collected out of the hard earniugs of the
people, has disappeared and no effort ia
made by the Government to hold tho
thieves responsible; that the Secretary
of the Troisury persistently refuses to
respond to an inquiry of Congress for
information, shows to what an alarming
stage of corruption the Government has
attained under the present administra?
tion. These robberies aro bad enough
in themselves, but when the Vice-Presi?
dent of the United States and the Chair?
man of the Finanoe Committeo of tho
Senate talk about "natural absorption in
passing from hand to hand," the insult
to the people becomes insufferable. No
doubt it is very "natural" for these
officials to absorb, but instead of accept?
ing the explanation as satisfactory, the
people view the operation as simply una?
dulterated stealing, and they will insist
that both the thieves and their depart?
ment protectors at Washington be
brought to judgment. "Natural absorp?
tion," indeed I If the defence be good,
why may not every rogue plead it?
GOVERNOR SCOTT'S DELEGATES.-The
Washington correspondent of the Now
York TPorTd" says:
To-day, Senators Robertson and Saw?
yer accompanied D. H. Chamberlain,
tbe Attornoy-Ganeral of South Carolina,
and L. C. Carpenter to tho Exeoutive
mansion, the two lost named having
been delegated by the Governor of that
State to visit the President on tho sub?
ject of affording protection to the people
in the upper part of South Carolina,
near the North Carolina line. Mr.
Chamberlain represented the condition
of affairs in that section, and desired to
know how long tho four companies of
cavalry now on their way would JL..iaiu
there, for ho said that if their sojourn
were only for a brief period, it would do
more harm than good. Tho Presidont
listened patiently to the representations
made by him, and assured these gentle?
men that the troops should remain there
long enough to restore peace and secure
obedionco to the laws, even if they
should bo thus employed during tho re?
mainder of his administration. Tho
gentlemen expressed themselves satis?
fied, and will to-morrow leave for homo.
When Senator Robertson was asked by
tho delegation to uccompauy them, ho
cheerfully consented, saying that as a
representative of all classes in South
Carolina, he would do anything iu his
power to secure an audienco with tho
President, and ho would render a liko
service to all others who sought a re?
medy for the grievances of which they

MR. J. D. COLEMAN: We have seen your
Self-acting Washer in practical operation, and

the clothes in washing in tho ordinary way.
No houae-kooper should bo without it.

those things that turn up onco in a century,
and belongs nut to the ephemeral humbugs
of tho day. It is permanent and staplo in its
character, and fur tho purpose intendod it
cannot bo superceded. All who soo it work
Bay, "'Tis just the thing; it can't be beat."
