Wednesday Morning, October 20 1871.
We learn that the Committee of In?
vestigation, in relation to the new mar?
ket and the City Hall, have been pro?
mised aooess to the planB and specifica?
tions of the said buildings. Tho com?
mittee have called to their aid Messrs.
Bell, Fry and Troy.
Tlte Question or Martial Law lu South
We are pleased to observo that tho in?
dependent press of the country are pro?
testing against tho arbitrary procoedings
of the United States soldiery in Sooth
. Carolina. North, South, East and West,
theee protests are mado. Nero is said to
have fiddled whilst Home was burning.
Grant pursues his travels and takes his
recreation in Maino whilst ho sets his
soldiery loose in outruged Sooth Caro?
We learn that an effort is making to
aeouro eminent oounsel from abroad to
test, in the court room, tho constitu?
tionality of the indiscriminate arrests
made nnder tho Kn Klux Act. It is
thought doe to our people that some
masterly lawyer, whoso voico will reach
the ear of the North, should be em?
ployed to test the question as to whether
there is any limit to the military despot?
ism eet on foot in this State.
Innocence no Protection.
'The intimation is thrown out by the
Radical organ, that becauso men in the
up-country aro seeking, in some cases,
to escape military arrest, it is becauso of
that guilty conscience, which needs no
accuser. This does not follow. It is
well known that, under the operations of
the Ra Klux Act, tho innocent and the
guilty may sailer alike. A little false
swearing-and this is readily obtained
and the arrest follows. Innocence is no
.protection; henoe it is that many a man
who is innocent of any offenoo seeks to
.escape the military clutches.
.Blair on tho situation-AU vico to the
"We observe the report of a speech
made at Montgomery, Ala., by Senator
F. P. Blair. He holds that the South
should be folly represented in tho next
National Democratic Oonvention. In
the name of the Northern and Western
Democracy, he protests against the po?
licy of Southern abstention. He thinks
that such action would prejudice the
-cause of the Sooth, and produce an im?
pression unfavorable to ns in the minds
.of the Northern peoplo.
He goes on to say that he is no friend
to what hos been called the new depar?
ture, but is prepared to conform to the
action of the Democratic party. He ad?
vises the adoption of the political pro?
gramme carried ont with success in Vir?
ginia and Missouri.. Gen. Blair's idea
seems to be that it wonld be well for the
Demooratio party to throw their votes
for such a man as Gratz Brown or
Schurz. Better, says he, wonld it be for
the Democratic party to vote for sn oh
men than to take a "new departure."
The Union has not correctly interpret?
ed oar suggestion about its responsibility
for "the present state of affairs." The
present Btate of affairs is that nine
Counties of South Carolina are laboring
under an unnecessary suspension of the
writ of habeas corpus; that the infamous
Ku .Klux Act, which bears aliko upon
innocent and guilty, han been put in
operation; that tho cause of immigra?
tion i to this State is retarded; that our
business interests in general are da?
maged; that the State, in all its length
and breadth,-is more or lesa' disturbed*,
and tho public energies thus misdirected
or wasted. And all this is the. result of
a regime which, in the main, is corrupt,
weak and inefficient; and this, also, is
the result of the representations made
in the oolumns of the Union; and that
the Union is tho special champion of this
regime. Here is its general responsibility.
It speaks with virtuous indignation ol
"Democratic" fraud and corruption, bul
keeps discreetly silent about the fester?
ing mass of corruption connected with
its party associates in this State. It hue
mnoh to say of municipal swindling in
New York, but is very quiet about mu?
nicipal robbery at home. It very pru?
dently is all the time overlooking the
rotten fabric and corrupt offioiala righi
under its nose, to indulge in vituperation
ol "Democrats" at homo and abroad.
It seems to think that wo desire to do
prive. it of its Ka Klux honors. Lei
the Union wear these honors. It hat
won ita apure-such as they are. Bal
this we have to say, that South Caroline
would, to-day, be better off if the Unioi
had exhibited half the zeal in denouno
ing Radical plundering that it Has ir
paving the way for Grant's saspensiox
of Jiabcas corpus.
The faot of tho matter is, that thc
Union's responsibility for the condition
of affaira in the npper Counties of this
State is folly appreciated in this com mu
nity. It will, no doubt, seek to divest
itself of its part in'this matter. Bat,
like tho shirt of Nessus, itu responsibility
will ding to it.
Nor, we may add, will a redeeming
article and -a redeeming suntimont, ap?
pearing now and theu iu its columns,
deceive intelligent people. Observe, for
i ?B tance, i tn remarks .on "Columbia-Its
BasinosB Prospects." In that artiole,
are remarks and suggestions that will do
very well. One would infer that the Co?
lumbia Union was seeking to build up
tho city. And yet. consider the damage
done to tho business interests of this
nity. by the general course of thnt jour?
nal. Wbat Northern settler is apt to
oome to any portion of South Curoliun,
upon tho representations of the Union as
to the spirit of the people geuurally in
this State? Its maliguaut statcyneuls
have been woll calculated to drive awuy
oipital and settlers. With one band,
tho Union pretends to holp tbe State,
whilst with tho other it inflicts blow ufter
blow npon its scarred bosom.

Gen. Hampton's Address In Ballimore.
Tbe Baltimore American-a Badioal

mentary manner of Gen. Hampton's
enlogy on Lee:
"ANNIVERSARY OF THU DEATH OF GEN.
B. ?. LEE.-Yesterday waa tho first
Anniversary of the death of Gen. B. B.
Lee, and was observed by tho Associa?
tion of Confederate soldiers and Bailors
in this oity. Qon. Wado Hampton, of
South Carolina, lute commander of the
cavalry corps of tho army of Northern
Virginia, delivered tho eulogy opon Gen.
Lee at tho Concordia, nt 8 o'clock in the
evening. An immonso concourse of
people assembled to listen t > him and do
honor to tho memory of tho illustrious
chiuituin, Robert E Loo. Thu body of
tho hull and the galleries wero thronged
with people uutil standing room could
hardly be obtained. Gen. Hampton, as
ho advanced to the tab ie, was received
by tho andienen by prolonged applause.
He delivered the uddress in a quiet, easy
manner, with little effort at orutory, ap?
parently, but with a distinctness nf
utterance, which reached every portion of
the house. no commenced with tho
boyhood of Gen. Lee, lifter ulluding to
his ancestors, and tho services they hud
rendered in tho early history of the
country, and brought bim do wu through
tho lute civil war to thw time of bis death.
The address was very interesting, and
at all times exceedingly eloquent and
beautiful. Ai tho mimes of prominent
Confederate Generals wero mentioned,
the audience would testify their appreci?
ation by applause, bot when tho mime of
Albert Siduey Johnston was spoken, the
storm of applause fun Iv shook the house.
Tho speaker was listened to with pro?
found alton (ion from the commencement
of his address to its conclusion."
Wu are informed that the above
address will bo given to thu public in
IIion-H ANDED OUTKAOE. - lt appears
that Mr. Louis H. DeMoutmoliin is tho
owuer of a rice plantation in South Ca?
rolina, near tho Suvauuuh aud Charles?
ton Railroad bridge, about fourteun
miles above this city, and that he, lust
year, rented it to Mr. Lumpkiu Zitier,
formerly of Effiughum Couuty, Georgia.
This year, it is said, Mr. DeMoutmoliin
notified Mr. Zetler that he wished him
to vacat3 the premises, which Mr. Zetler
refused to do. Another versiou ia, that
Mr. DeMoutmoliin stated to Mr. Zetler
tbut ho must not sub-let tho piuco, or a
part of it, to negroes. However, Mr.
Zetler is said to have taken no particular
uotioa of either one or the other, or
both of Mr. DcMontmollin'a requests.
The difficulty grew out of un attempt,
on the part of Mr. DoMontmollin, to
enforce his demand.
Abont ono wook ago, Mr. DoMontmol?
lin went to the plantation and forcibly
ejected Mr. Zetler nnd a number of the
negroes working on the place. There, in
no Magistrate's Court iu that neighbor?
hood, aud, as a number of negroes de?
cided to remain and work for Mr. De?
Moutmoliin on the same terms as they
had been working for Mr. Zitier, and as
quiet seemed to huve been restored, Mr.
DuMontmolliu returned to Savannah.
Two or three days ago, however, the ne?
groes who hud abandoned the plantation
with Mr. Zetler decided to return und
drive off those at work for DeMoutmol?
iin. Tho latter nutnad gentleman imme?
diately left the city, aud, accompanied
by W. A. Kent and u Mr. fleury Slyer,
euoatnped on tho plantation witbiu the

EDITORS CHRONICLE AND BEN TINKI,:
Your article in last Saturday's issue, on
the state of affairs in the war district of
South Carolina, encourages me to tres?
pass on your colamos. Our people have
become BO accustomed to reproof, both
from our own press and from Northern
correspondents, for our restiveness under
tbe application of mirtiul luw, that I,
for one, really feel obliged to you for
your justification of the "running
away" from home of those who are pe?
cuniarily able to do so.
Now, it is a serious matter for u man
to break through the net of engagements
which involve bim in any business what?
soever, and "run away." As a general
hin , lt argues that the fugitive has ex?
hausted his credit at home and is virtu?
ally a bankrupt. But when men of un?
impeachable integrity uro forced to this
course, the apparent anomaly must bo
explained in some other way. Tho faot
is as you have stated it-that many citi
7,ons of South Carolina are seeking
home? elsewhere, aud your correspond?
ent desires to clear their fair fume.
These men uro not leaving home for
crimes committed, but fur escape from
that very military oppression which thc
Constitution of tho United Stutes ex?
pressly guards against. The writ of
habeas corpus has buen suspended in thu
Fourth Congressional District of South
Carolina, aud the military force unw
quartered in that District have been ex?
pressly instructed to violate thu great
charter of Anglo-Saxon freedom, by mak?
ing arrests without responsibility to the
eivil authorities. These slaves of the
mau who is military dictator of part of
our country, and the Republican Presi?
dent of tho yet iinsiibjugatod sections,
aro empowered to arrest tiny man in tho
oppressed District, aud tbe victims are
debarred of all legal redress by a special
Act of Congress. The work has already
been begun, aud thu silence of Hie tele?
graph ns to the number of arrests known
to tbe writer, argues n subordination of
that usually free instrument of publish?
ing information. Thc parties arrested
have almost always been taken from their
homes at night, and they aro now in the
hands of the satrap of upper South Ca?
rolina, Maj. Merrill, who holds them
subject to trial on tho accusation of any
mun, white or black, who is williug tc
earn S2 ii day us a witness against them.
Cau tiny man blame a South Carolinian
for leaving home? REFUGEE.
BAYONETS AT TUE SOCTIX.-The cor?
respondent of the New York Sun, writ?
ing from Yorkville, S. C., thus doscribe^
the Grant campaign in that section:
A military invasion of such formidu
bio proportions iu a time of profound
peuce-so profoundly peaceful that tht
County Sheriff, his constables, and tht
local magistrates have to lie around ic
utter idleness-has, as might be sup
posed, created a reign of terror through
out upper South Carolina. The infer
enae is that the military are sent here foi
a purpose. The people bavo their owe
notions of whut that purpose is. Thej
know it bodes no good to the peace, thi
welfare, or tho quiet of the Conuty
They remember that Judge Bond rc
oently presided over a session of tin
United States Circuit Conrt in Raleigh
N. C., where it was only necessary to ac
ouse parties of complicity in Ku Klu:

tiary followed. They hear that Judg<
Bond is to preside over the United State
Circuit Court for this State in a fev
weeks; that certain influential Reptibli
cans are clamoring for the removal of tin
United States Marshal for thi-? district
Lewis E. Johnson, Esq., because it i;
alleged that he is not sufficiently vindie
tivo in his sentiments to pack jurios tba
can be relied upon to convict in al
cases. They believe that tho mo vein en
of troops menus that martial law is to b
proclaimed; that all parties suspected o
complicity in Kn Klux raids last wiuto
are to be arrested sud imprisoned unti
it may suit their jailors to release them
and that if thc policy of packing jurie
Biiccueds in this State us it did iu Norll

them in the face, the white male popuht
