'Let our Just Censure
COLUMBIA, S. C., FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 18. 1871. VOL. VII-NO. I26?
BY J. A. SELBY.
A Black Man'? Views.
Maj. M. R. Delany, a blaok man of
Borne education and considerable inde?
pendence, who ia now established in
Charleston as a land agent, has publish?
ed a letter to Fred. Douglass, containing
a review of the condition of things poli?
tical in South . Carolina, . which, he
thinks, will also justly apply to nearly
all, if not all, the reconstructed States of
the South. We make some noteworthy
extraotB from tho lotter:
When the war ended, tho colored peo?
ple of tho South had little knowledge of
social and politic?! affairs, and had, of
necessity, to accept such" lenders as pre?
sented themselves. The firsteoof these
were in the persons of various agencies;
as school-teachers, (mostly women,) tho
Christian Commission, colporteurs and
agents of tho "Freedmen's Affairs," (not
the Bureau,) who aided in directiog their
social and domosticrelations. When re?
construction commenced, political lead?
ers were greatly required, but few to be
bad. Southerners (the old masters) stu?
diously opposed and refused to counte?
nance reconstruction, and the freedmen
were fearful and would, not have trusted
them if they could have obtained their
Those who came with or followed the
army, with .a very few native whites,
were, the only available political element
to be bad to icarry out the measures ol
reconstruction. These were readily ac?
cepted by the blacks (by this I include
tho -entire colored people) and the fullesl
eon?denoe reposed in them. Some wert
or had been officers in the army, somt
privates, Borne antlers, others peddler;
and various tradesmen, others gamblen
and even pick-pookets, "hangers on" anc
"bummers." I am particularly speaking
of tho whites.,. Among thean were mei
of refinement, educated gentlemen, ant
Bomo very good men; but a large part o
those most active were of the lowes
grade of Northern society-negro-hater
at home-who could not have been eleot
ed to any position of honor or trust
Just such men os burnt down negr<
orphan asylums and bung negro mon t<
lamp-posts in the New York riot of 1863
In this review I intend to speak plainly
call things by their right names, am
look those) of whom I speak directly i:
the face. The best and most competen
men were chosen to fill the most impoi
tant positions in State and local govern
mont?, while the others readily ob taine
snob places as required incumbents. Ir
deed, there WAS scarcely one so incompt
tent as'not to have been assigned som
position of trust.
Positioned in placea of power, prof
and trust, tbey soon sought, by thc
guile and deception known only to th
magogues, under acceptable appellation
of Yankee, Republican and Radical, t
intrude themselves into the confident
of the blacks, and place themselves r
their head as leaders. So insidnousl
did they do this, that it was not disc?
vered by the few colored men of intel!
gence wbo held places among them ti
too lato to remedy the fatal evil.
These demagogues laid the foundatic
of their oareer upon a basis of the mo
dangerous political heresy. Deceptioi
lying, cheating, stealing, "whatever cc
be done in politics is fair," and "to be
is the doty in a political contest, no mo
ter what means are used to effect it," a
among the pernicious precepts of th
Jealous of the few intelligent colon
men among them, they studiously soug
to divide the blacks, by sowing the see
of discord among them. This WAS faoi
tated by prejudicing the ignorant agair
tho intelligent. These men strove and vi
each with tho other, regardless of co
sequences, to place himself in the le
of a community of blacks in both tte
and couutry, which in time was red nc
to little else than a rabble mob of dist
der and confusion. Trained in theloagt
as serfs to their masters, it became dc
, gerous to opposo the teachings of tin
men of mischief. Because, buying be
recommended to their confidence at t
commencement of reconstruction, th
experience and knowledge in public rx
and mutters were too limited to belit
anything against them.
A knowledge of this emboldened th
men to a persistence in their course
crime and corruption. Hence, ms
otherwise good mon, both white n
black, from age, inexperience or we
noss, were induced to acoept the m
etrous teachings and join with or foll
the lead of these wretched impostt
Their ?ole object being personal gt
they oared little or nothing for put
weal, t,bo interest of the State or peoj
black or white, nor tho Republi
cause, npon whiob they bad indecet
imposed themselves. This is that wi
controlled Charleston politics, i
brought deserved defeat to the Repa
cans in the recent municipal eleotion
was just retribution to a set of unpri
pied miscreants, rioting on tbe peor
rights nnder the name of "Repablicai
Honest, upright men of all purl
white and black, no longer able to t
it, determined to put down theabom
bia thing-leading Republicans, '
bad beon standing aloof, taking an
tive patt. Among other things, I
taught the simple-minded people
suffrage was inviolably secure, tho bl
being in the majority, would always
trol the affairs of Stato in tho So
that tho fifteenth amendment bad
lished color and complexion in
United States, and tho people were
all of one race. Thia bare-faced dp
Hon was so instilled into tl em tb
became dangerous, in many intim?e
go into the conntry nod speak of (
in any manner whatever, without tht
gry rejoinder: "Wo don't want to
that; we are all one color now!"
Thoa? ridiculous absurdities were
tered by the demagogues the betti
conceal theirown perfidy and keep tl
selves in the best positions, as "Re
licanism knows no race," tbey tang]
Another imposition was that col
peoplo did not require intelligent co]
leaders; that tho Constitution had
purged of color by a Radical Congress,
aud to bo a Republican was all that was
required to make a trne representative.
That mental culturo and qualifications
were only required by tho proud and ar?
rogant; that ull who requested those ac?
complishments wero enemies to both
black and white; that raco representa?
tion was making distinctions on account
of race and color. By this means they
opposed tho qualified men among the
blacks, encouraged the ignorant and less
qualified, that they might of necessity
tako tho lead and ocoupy the best places
in tbe party. These are plain, iudispnt
ablo truths, which will not bo denied by
any upright, intelligent Republican,
black or white.
Before the introduction of these men
among - them, tbero never was a bettor
population, rural or town, out of which
to shape .a useful political element.
Good-hearted, simple-minded, mostly
uneducated, they were ready and will?
ing to receive any instruction supposed
for their own good, whioh they anxious?
ly awaited and as eagerly Bought. And
could they have had the advice of tho
maturely intelligent, good and virtuous
friends of humanity, such as was re?
ceived and given by us during more
than thirty years* toilsome battle for li?
berty and right, tbero never could have
been tho cause for the complaint against
UH os a race, now in a measure justifiable.
One most fruitful causo of misohief in
the party aroso from tho. age and want
of experience on the part of the good
white men who assumed to lead in poli?
tics-as well as ignorance in tho most of
them-and the same maybe said of their
colored .colleagues. For the most part,
young men, wbero they possessed tho
cultivated qualification, they were defi
ci?nt in experience and knowledge in
To such an extent oro they misled,
that they regularly trained themselves
with firo-nrms and marched in companies
to political meetings, frequently led by
miserable white men. Menacing, threat?
ening, abusing, quarrelling, confusion
and frequently rioting, are common re?
solta of this most disgraceful state of
affairs under which we live, all in the
name of Republicanism.
The effect upon the pooplo is wonder?
ful. From a polite, pleasant, agreeable,
kindly common people, ever ready and
obliging, there is now to bo met with au
ill-mannerly, sullen, disagreeable, un?
kind, disobliging populace, seemingly
filled with hatred and ready for resent?
ment. These changes in the character
of the people must have been noticed by
every intelligent observer, in contradis?
tinction to their former excellent repu?
tation. Formerly, they were proverbial
for their politeness; latterly, they aro
noticed for tho absence of it. These
people aro despoiled of their natural
characteristics, and shamefully demoral?
ized by renegade intruders.
The remainder of the letter is mainly
devoted to mention of tho grievances
under which the black major conceives
that his race still labors, aud to the con?
sideration of the most available remedies.

MANY a human being haB passed away,

UR, JOSEPH H. SCHKNCK'S
And availed themselves of his wonderful elli
oaoious medicines, thoy would not have fallen.
Dr. Schonck has, in his own caso, proved
that wherever sufficient vitality romains, that
vitality, by his medicines and his direction?
for their uso, is quickened into healthful
In this st atom ont there ia nothing presump?
tuous. To the faith of tho invalid ia mado no
representation that ls not a thousand times
substantiated by living and visible works.
Tho theory of tho euro by Dr. Schenck's me?
dicine is as simple as it is unfailing. Its phi?
losophy requires no argument. It is BolX-as
Tho Seaweod Tonic and Mandrake Pill? aro
tho first two weapons with whi-h the citadel
of the malady ia aBsailed. Two-thirds of tue
oases of consumption originate in dyBpopBia
and a functionally disordered livor. With this
condition tho bronchial tubos "sympathize"
with tho stomach. Thoy respond tr .ho m?r?
bido action of the liver. Horo, then, comos
tho culminating result, and tho Betting in,
with all its distressing symptoms, of
Tho Mandrake Pills aro composed of ono of
Dtaturo's noblest gifta-Hie Podophillum Fol
tatum. They poasess all tho blood-aearch
ing, alterative properties of calomel; hut, un
ike calomel, thoy
?LEAVE NO STING BEHIND."
Tho work of euro is now beginning. Tho,
dilated and mucous deposits in the bowels
?nd in the alimentary canal aro ejected. The
iver, liko a clock, is wound up. It arouses
from its torpidity. Tho stomach acts respon?
sively, and tho patient begins to fool that ho
a getting, at last,
A SUPPLY OP GOOD BLOOD.
The Soawced Tonio, in conjunction with tho
Pills, permeates and assimilates with thc food.
Jhyliiication is now progressing without its
previous tortures. Digestion becomes pain
ess, and the euro is soon to bo at hand.
There is no moro flatulence, no exacerbation
if tho stomach. An appetito sots in.
Now comos tho greatest Blood Purifier evor
ret given by an indulgent father to Buffering
nan. Sclienck's Pulmonic Syrup comes in to
lerform its functions and to hasten and com?
plete the cure. It enters at once upou its
york. Nature cannot be cheated. It collecta
ind ripens the impaired and diseased portions
>f the InngB. In the form of gatherings, it
impares them for expectoration, and lol in a
rery idiort time, tho malady in vanquished,
ho rotten throne thatitoccupied is renovated
iud mado new, and tho patient, in all tho dig
illy of regaiued vigor, atona forth to enjoy
,hei manhood or tho womanhood that was
GIVEN UP AS LOST.
Tho second thing is, Ibo patients must stay
n swarm room until they get well; it in HI
niifi impossible to prevent, taking cold when
.hu lungs aro disoaSed, hut it must bo prc
routed, or a euro cannot bo effected. Fresh
dr and riding out, especially in this Bection
if tho country in the fall and wilder season,
iro all wrong. Physicians who recommend
hut course loso their patients, if their lungs
ire badly diseased, and yet, because thoy aro
n the house, they must not sit down quiet;
hey must walk about tho room as milch and
LS fast as the strength will boar, to get up a
rood circulation of blood. The patients
mist keep ill good spirits-bo determined to
?ct well. This has a groat deal to do with tho
appetite, and is tho great point to Rain.
To despair of oure aftcrsuch evidence of ita
)ossibility in tho worst casos, and morul cer
ainty in all others, is sinful. Dr. Schenck's
)creo:ial statement to the Faculty of his own
:ure was in these modest words:
"Mauy years ago 1 was in the last stages of
'onsumptionj confined lo my bed, and atone
.imo my physicians thought that I could not
ive a week; then, like a drowning mau catch
ng at straws, I heard of and obtained tho
j reparations which I now offer to tho public,
tod they made a perfect cure of mc. lt
teemed to mo that I could feel them pen?trate
ny wholo system. They soon ripened tho
natter in my lungs, and ? would epd up moro
diana pint of offensivo yellow matter every
norning for a long time.
"As soon as that began to snbaido, my
:ougb, fever, pain and night sweats all began
o leave mo, and my appetite becamo so great
.hat it was with difficulty that I could keon
'rom eating too much. I soon gained strength
ind have growniin Ilea li ever since.
"I was weighed shortly after my recovery,"
idded tho Doctor, "then looking like a mere
skeleton; my weight waa only ninety-seven
pounds; my present weight ia two huudrod
iud twenty-five  pounds, and for years I
lave enjoyed uninterrupted health."
Dr. Stihenck has discontinued his profes?
ional visits to New York and Boston. Ho or
Iiis sou, Dr. J. H. Soheuok, Jr., Billi continue
to seo patients at their office, No. 15 North
Sixth street, Philadelphia, every Saturday
rr o rn 9 A. M. to 3 P. M. Those who wish a |
thorough examination with the Itespirometer
will he charged (5. The Hcapirometer de?
slares the exact condition of the lungs, and
patients can readily learn whether they are
un able or not.
The directions for taking tho medicines aro
idapted to thu intelligence even of a child.
Follow these directions, and kind nature will
flo tho roBt, excepting that in nome cases tho
Mandrake Pills are to he taken in increased
[loses; the three medicines need liri other ac?
companiments than the implo instructions
that accompany them: First create appetite.
Of returning health hunger is the most wei
comoisymptom. When it COUICH, SB it will
some, let tho despaiiing at once bo of good
cheer. Good blood at once follows, tho cough
loosens, the night sweat is abated. In a
short time both of those morbid symptoms
urn gone forever.
Dr. Schenck's medicines aro constantly kept
in tcn'sof thouHauds of families. Aa a laxa?
tivo or purgative, tho Mandrake Pills aro a
standard preparation; while the Pulmonic
Syrup, as a curer of coughs and colds, may ho
regarded as a prophylacteriu against con?
sumption in any of its forms.
