infamous Sentiments-The Wnr iTpon
Soatb Carolin?. . ; i
Tho prominent Radicalrepresented in
our leane of yesterday aa tho an thor of
the remark that he hoped the oitizeus.of
the op-oonntry would fire into the United
States troops, so that *'i i " 'could "fis
Ahem," could "ahow them wbut hell is,"
waa Solomon Li. H?ge, ex-Judge, ex
member of Congress, and the recent as?
pirant for.United States Mardbal John?
son's place. That he made the remarks
attributed to him, we have the best au?
thority. We have time, place and cir?
cumstances. This language' was'' even
stronger than given above. It is our
duty to arraign Mr. H?ge bofore the bar
-of the public opinion of the country for
this infamous sentiment. It is our duty
to dp so, because we believe that thu
said sentiment lies at the bottom of the
feelings wbioli have prompted Mr. H?ge
-and bis oo-oonspiratora to nse their in?
fluence to bring upon South Carolina
the military rule that now obtains over
more than one-fourth of the Counties of
ifhe State. Mr. H?ge belongs to that
-das" of political adventurers who came
to South Carolina to intervene between
the whites and blacks, and to live upon
the spoils of politics. He is a bitter
Radical, who has' done his full part in
.creating and. keeping up ill-fooling bo
'tween tho races in South Carolina, that
ha might carry oat bis individual ends.
His - public career is well known here.
With no knowledge nf 'the law, he rose
to be ono of the Associate Judge's on the
Supreme Benoh of tho State. With no
statesmanship, by means of noisy dcma
gogaism, he became o Radical member
.of Congress. He exhausts these honors
and becomes a "briefless barrister" in
this city, feeding upon, the crumbs that
might fall from the tables of the State.
And now he enters npon a now oarecr.
(He aids in the effort to briug the power
of the General Government upon the
object of his malice-the whites of South
Carolina. He is impressed with the ter?
rible outrages attributed to Ku Kluxism.
The corruption of the Legislature-the
Lund Commission swindle-the profli?
gacy of our rulers-the grand stealing
that State and County officials have car?
ried on-tho County abuses--the cases
of barn-burning and gin-bouses do
stroyod-all these moved him not. But
when the outlaws in the Government had
.prodneed outlawry and Lynch law in
portions of Sooth Carolina, he becomes
aroused. He enters the oonnpiraoy; he
thinkR that United States Marshal John?
son is not sound; he wants to aconre his
place; he wants to "Bx" the people of
the up-country. Well, he does not get
the.place of United States Marshal; but
he and his co-intriguers, aided by the
labors.of such papers as the Washington
^Chronicle and the Columbia Union, do
.bring upon South Carolina-tho law of
the sword in nine Counties of the State.
The soldiers of the United States come,
and although the oitizens are subjected
.to wrongs and outragea enough to stir a
?fever in the blood of age, and to make
manhood's sinews strong as steel, yet
they submit-very properly submit.
This is, now, what so disappoints Mr.
H?ge and his associates io infamy and
in malice. Not satisfied with the wrongs
and damage inflicted upon the people of
the proscribed Counties, he hopes to
God that tbe United States troops will
be fired upon, so that the fall strength
of a powerful Government may be
brought to bear npon o people already
-cruelly treated! Mr. Hogo wants to seo
-an infuriated soldiery let loose upon
helpless communities. Tho sentiment is
outrageous, and we ask any fair-minded,
unprejudiced man, if it does not imply a
heart fully bent upon mischief. And
this man is a flt representative of the
class in South Carolina who havo mis?
represented na ut Washington, and
brought this present infliction upon a
struggling State. Looking to tho fell
spirit thus evinced, we may well say to
this sohemer and plotter, and bin asso?
ciates-to eaoh: "How long, oh! Calalinc,
to ill thou abuse our pal?enos-lo what tx
.lent wilt thou carry thy unbridled insolence
We, therefore, charge Mr. H?ge with
the expression of a sentiment which dis?
traeos humanity, and falsifies the citi?
zenship which he olaima in South Caro
lin*. Farther, we call the attention of
tho country to a sentiment which, wo be?
lieve, discloses the design of the domestic
foes in our midst, who have invited tho
causeless military rule that oppresses our
people and paralyzes our business inte?
rests-that adds to the loss already in?
flicted upon ns by a corrupt and ineffi?
cient State government. It ia hard that
we should be plnndered by Scott & Co.
?nd thon punished by Grant and his ad?
visers. Bat we mast submit.
Wo aro happy, however, to say that we
feel no apprehension of any citizen in
the up-country being so mad as to take
the oourae that our foes so ardently de?
sire. AU United States"officers are not
Uko ex-Liout. H?ge. ' The United States
officers," as a .general rule, havo not
abo wu themselves actuated by tue malig?
nant spirit ovinced by Mr. H?ge &
Oo. Tbe soldiers are not all inconside?
rate. We feel that there is and will be
no disposition to carry out any such sui?
cidal ,and foolish programme ns Mr.
H?ge and his party would desire. The
?power of tho General. Government will
bo acknowledged, and Bhould be.
Tbc Work of OUgorgement
Hus begun ia New York. We obsorve
that a oivil suit bas been instituted
against Mr. Tweed and several others
for several millions of dollars. The suit
ix brought upon the affidavit of Samuel
J. Tilden. Tho exhibit and tabular
statements aro startling and make up a
strong prima facie case against W. M.
Tweed. The charge is, that he has de?
frauded the Oounty of Mew York of
large sums. The blood-honndB of the
law aro apon the tracks ot the Ne iv York
swindlers;- We hope that tbe work will
begin in this State. Had we a Governor
of the Huffman stamp, and a State At?
torney-General like Champlain, of the
Stute of New York, we would have an
investigation ordered for to-morrow.
The work for South Carolina cannot
begin too early. Already one O. F.
Leslie has left the State and is investing
largely in Now York, Who can toll how
soun his associates in crime and corrup?
tion niiy follow .suit? We fear that
when the period rolls on for the ac?
countability, which we expeob to be ex
noted of many of our State officiais, they
will be found to have gone hence, carry?
ing with them their ill-gotten gains.
The inquisition should begin ut once.
But "where is the once strong arm of
South Carolina?" Echo answers where?
Whilst troth replies: Weak, trembling
gangrened. Alasl for the cause of justice
and of South Carolina!
CITY MEAL AND STATE MEAD.-The
Union ask?, "Is there a cat in the meal?"
and wakes np to the questions some
time since raised by U3 in respect to the
City Hall abd new market. Of couree,
there i8 "a cat in the meal." We have
already showed its head, its eyes, and its
tail. We have showed its tracks, and,
we think, made its "fur?y." Of coarse,
there is a very big cat in tho meal, and '
we hnpo the Union may catch it. Bettor
is it for tho Union to look after the cats
in our meal than to trouble itself too
much with the Tammany oats.
And, whilst at this business of inves?
tigation, we desire to put this question
categorically.' ls there not, Union, some
larger cats in the State meal? Do not
aonfine your attention to tho municipal
oats. Tho genuine "wild cits" are to
be fouad in the State House, and you
oan help to catch them. Will you help?
Another point is this, and it shows to
the community that beautiful jewel of
consistency which is set in the Union's
head, and shines so bright. When the
committee of tho Tax-payers' Conven?
tion, headed by Mr. E. J. Scott, asked
of Treasurer Parker an examination of
his books in the public behalf, the
Union, we remember, warmly sustained
Treasuror Parker'Tu his refusal to per?
mit the examination asked for. It sus?
tained this corrupt official fully. Now,
it says that a statement is duo to the
public from tho Mayor and Council, and
adds: "No man holding a public office
has tho right to stand upon his dignity,
and rufuso to give information which the
public have a right to know." Now, this
is sound doctrine; but how, O, Union,
how does the Btuud you take, now, com?
paro with youl defence of Parker's im?
pudent cl ii i ni l

Mit. EDITOR: lu reply to a "squib" in
tho PUONIX, this morning, the public
are invitod to examine the daily record
of punishments at the Penitentiary dur?
ing Superintendent Lee's administra?
tion, recorded by his own clerk; also,
the daily record since the pr en ou t regimen
succeeded to the honors of the place,
and judge for themselves, by compari?
son, as to the inhumanity practiced
there now. Blind marones, (in which a
oonviot waa killed,) suspensions by the
thumbs, with scourgings, shower baths,
ko., were almost of daily oocurrenoe, os
tho record will show, were suspended by
tue direotors, at an oariy meeting, in
conjunction with the present Superin?
tendent, and the shower bath only re?
vived in extreme oases of atrocious con?
duct, and very rarely then. I should be
ashamed to ask whether Mr. Leo was a
Democrat or no, thinking that polities
Bhould not be boosted into all. matters:
but, unfortunately, in those days, the
question is, who does it? not what is

and get tne picture of some of the men

?.A. Director'? Response.'*
In reply to oar suggestion that the
death of Brown, the oonviot, at the State
Penitentiary, uhoulci pat tho Superin?
tendent ns well as others on the defence,
"A Director" answers what he calls oar
"squib." It is obvions that the "squib"
in reply does not meet the points made
by ns-that the death of the eonviot was
ander cruel oiroumstanoen, and that the
Superintendent should be put on his de?
fence. Is he ati?vo suspicion? Does
"A Director" object to a~full investiga?
tion?' We do not say th it the Superin?
tendent should bo condemned because lio
is of the dominant party. But we did
say, and do repeat, that had the Super?
intendent been "a Denioornt," we would
h-ive had a howl about the "down-trod?
den negro." "A Director" ought to seo
the point, if ho does not.
"A 'Word to the Wise."
As our readers have no doubt observed
for themselves, the hope of our enemies
is (hat the arbitrary measures inaugu?
rated in certain parts of South Carolina
may provoko the oitizens to Eome mea?
sure of resistance. This hope is in?
dulged, to the end that an oxause may bo
furnished for still further tightening the
"coil of the empire" around the South.
President Grants wants this excuse, and
they who in South Carolina have secured
Federal intervention und military law
for purposes of their own, also want this
excuse. As to tho South Carolina fae
tiou, hoaded by A. S. Wallace, the utter?
ance of Mr. Hago discloses their animus.
Their motto is, "Cry havoc! and let
slip tho dogs of war," upon this Stute,
or, ut least, upou curtain parties thereof.
In view of this, as we havo bufare said,
it is incumbent upou un to not circum?
spectly, to take no untenable ground, to
keep ever-even technically-right. Wu
aro certainly in a deplorable coudition.
Whilst tho prospect is dark indeed, we
eoe no occasion for nervous fears or un?
manly misgivings. We seo no occasion
for inactivity or despondency. As well
as we may, lot us, with heads erect and
"level" and spirits undaunted, pursue
each of us his daily avocations. Lut the
bnsiuoss of the State be prosecuted to
tho best advantage. Lot the farming,
the mercantile and the mechanical inter?
ests of our peoplo meet with no un?
called for neglect. We havo thi* faith
before expressed-that these waves that
?lave rolled over us must are long recede.
We have this faith, that what there is
of justice ia our cause will surely tri?
We feel that these words, addressed to
our fellow-citizens, iu sober earnestness
and deep sympathy, will bo received in
the spirit wherewith we send them forth
on this Sabbath morning. The press,
thus far, is unshackled. It ought to
meet the occasion. It has great princi?
ples to lift up before the country, atid a
discreet, firm, just public sentiment to
encourage and build up. For one, ns a
journalist of Carolina, we intend to
do what in us lies, to mitigate the blow
and lo temper the great calamity that
has fallen upon our stricken State.
Whilst we have no apology to make for
orimes committed, and no disposition to
shield those fairly provod to have vio?
lated the law, yet wo do raise our voice
sgainst the causeless measure which puts
a lurga portion of the Stuto under the
law of the bayonet and the sword. Some
there are. wo know, who cannot appreci?
ate tho deep feelings with which we ro
fleet upou tho indiscriminate arrests and
rudo incarceration alike of innocent and
guilty persons. Como what may, wo
shall stund by thu Stuto. Sarvico in her
behalf is agreeable-it is sweet and
honorable. Tho Statu of South Caro?
lina, in her distress, most needs tho de?
votion of her true sons and noble
daughters. Let us now stand hy her
broken altars, and even in our poverty
and weakness, pour upon them tho rich
libations of an ardent patriotism.

SHAMEFUL BREACH OP THE PEACE.
The corner of Broad and Meeting streets
was tho scene of a shameful breach of
the public peace, yesterday, between 10
and ll o'clock. -
3 The parties to it were Trial Juntioe T.
J. Mackey and Mr, Wi J. Whaley, the
reporter of the Netra. Considering the
number of shots exchanged, it ia won?
derful that no injury resulted to tho an?
tagonists, The oircuuQBtanooB of the
ouse are these, as far as wo nra able to
gut her them:
. Trial Justice Mackey was standing
under tho porch of tho guard house,
when Mr. Whaley was on his way to get
his usual morning report of the Mayor's
Court. AH he was crooning towards the
guard house, Mr. Mackey confronted
him, and warned him to defend himself,
at the same time drawiog an army re?
volver loaded in five barrels, the other
being found empty, und firing at him
Mr. Whaley halted midway in the street
and quickly returned his fire, until his
five-barreled GOU'B revolver was dis?
charged, whou he raised his weapon in
token of having exhausted his means of
defence. Mr. Mackey's attention waa
culled to thu fuct that he was firing on an
unarmed man, and he ceased, having ex?
ploded the five barrels of the army re?
volver and one loaded barrel of nn extra
pistol, which he drew from his pocket
when his first gave out. At this junc?
ture. Trial Justice Levy ordered the
arrest of the parties, oud they were con?
ducted to the Mayor's Court room,
where thoy entered into recognizances
ip tho sum of 81,000 each to Keep tho
peace, so wilfully disregarded. Mr. E.
D. Edstou becoming Mr. Whaley'a
surety, and Geu. W. J. Whipper Trial
Under instructions of Chief of Police
Hendricks, thy crowd which had been
drawn to the locality by the occurrence
was dispersed and matters quieted dowu.
A short, whilo after the difficulty, our
reporter saw Mr. Mackey, aud under?
stood him to acknowledge that lie hud
tired thc Iii st shot, but subsequently he
informed him that he lind misappre?
hended his remarks. There aro a num?
ber of reliable citizens who assert mo?t
positively that he did fire tho first ?hot.
ftlr. Hamilton, of tho Pavilion Hotel,
who was passing up Meeting street at
the timo of tho encounter, said to our
reporter, last evening, that ho heard tile
first shot fired distinctly, and that the
hall carno in close proximity to him,
chipping off a pieeo of brick from tho
lire-proof building, which struck him on
the chin. Mr. Mackey was firing in
thal direction. We have no other ob?
ject in refurriug to tho first shot so par?
ticularly, thou to show who originated
au affair which outraged tho reputation
of a city so proverbial for its quiet.
[Charleston Courier, 28th.
A CoitBEOTlON -lu our issue of tho
13th, we published au article headed
"Aro wo in Peace or War?" which wu
find did much injustice to tho soldiers
who were sent to arrest Capt. J. Banks
Lyle; and as we have no inclinatiou to
make falso statements against any one,
we deem it our duty lo correct thosn in
tho article alluded to. Wo thought tho
source from wheoco wc obtained tho iu- '
formation perfectly reliable, or wc
should not have published it. A gentle?
man who was present when tho soldiers
went to Capt. Lyle's house, and in whom
the utmost reliance can bo placed, in?
forms us that it is not truo that the
soldiers oat tho breakf ist prepared for
the students, nor did they bitch their
horses in the froot yard among the

discourteous to the inmates of tho house.
Tb/it they fed their horses from Capt.
Lyle's crib is true, but they say they aro
