Settlers vs. Political Adventurers.
The Union, of yesterday, piros-the.
views of its correspondent, "Truth," and
its own reflections apon tbs subject mat?
ter of ?.'Truth's" communication. lt
has been said that "truth is mighty and
will prevail," but this "Truth" ?H weuk,
and thin, and won'tprevail. If there bo:
one subject upon which om* head is
"level," it is, O, Union, and O, "Truth,"
on the question of settlers from the
North and from Europe, la season and
out of season we have advocated the
polioy and entertained the gouuiue feel
ting of'encouraging the ingress in this
State of au enterprising olass of settlers.
If tho writer of this artiole could, with
propriety, divest himself of his imper?
sonality us a journalist, it would appear
that no one io tho. whole State hus ex?
tended a moro generous welcome to the
white sellier thau he. And this bus al?
ways been the spirit of tho PHOENIX
since first il rose from the ashes of Co
lat?fblair Weib?Ve 'ijf?yer-indulged, ia in-'
discriminate ?abuse df.tho North, and
hayOi-aTiv?yV'-^rayu.^ Revere' Jipa bf de
m?rk?tion between 'the'genuin-*, bona
fide settlers audf the th??viug Voarpqt
bngger. " 'And (theso liborul Sentiments
efprc$8.ed.?Q;.tho PJEICENIX do reflect the
views of. our native-born .and adopted
sons generally. ' Tho fact of. the .mutter
is, our vi?ws'have ever been liberal, Tho
Union, for instance; drew its. animating
breath iii*the' State of Connecticut, and
wo. moutjou,. this. not fljy way . bf 'dispa?
ragement, /.Now, O, Ufiion',. JJiijak : you
tHat~we"Ii?Id that State noted only tor its
wooden hams and nutmegs, and its
cloak of poor manufacture? Wo believe
that there are as good people in Connec?
ticut as hero-and so with respect to the
other Northern States. We have in this
State esteemed friends from Vermont,
New York, Ohio, and elsewhere. We
caro not where a man comes from pro?
vided he has the elements of a genuine
manhood. But we have ever held that
the North and South could materially in?
struct each other. Weean learn much
from the North and the North can learn
something from us. We hope that the
little waif 'which our paragraphist picked
up from au exchange will not wound the
sensibilities of "Tri.th'.'-after this arti?
cle. We hold, O, ''Truth," that there
aro some flowers gro ?lng near Plymouth
Kock as, well as foul weeds. We admit,
O, "Truth," that tho samo will bold for
King's Mountain aud tho banks of our
Conguree. But, remember this, that we
do'u?t intend to lot tho "carpet-baggers,"
ns they are known, hide themselves un
dor'the skirts of tho settlers. The skirts
of such geutlemen and sturdy citizens as
Messrs. Wheeler, Pearce, McKay, Bush,
Ticks, the Irwins, the Ly Brands, Lowry,
Steers, abd others, ure broad aud pure
too pure for I he "carpet-bagger" to gc
under them f<.*r refuge. For ourselves,
we open wide tho doors of the State tc
white settlers. Tho Union, however,
will excuse ue from expressing the wisL
for any settlers from Africa and Asia. Ic
this respect, the Union exceeds ns ir
liberality, aud long may it exceed u;
And now we eud with a queston tc
"Union" and "Truth," eaoh. It soemi
hard to them that we consider that "car
pet-baggers" should be more modest it
their claims. Suppose, O, "Truth," tba
Southern meu, mostly of tho wosst class
should settle in New York, and at ono?
seek to array the Irish or the Gormar
element-strong and respectable as tba
element is-against tho native citizens
and undertake to fill in Now York all th?
offices of honor or trust. Would yoi
not, as a native New Yorker, think th<
case rather hard? You must see th<
point. We shall merely throw ont tin
suggestion. And suppose, O, . Union
- that a native South Carolinian should gt
to Connecticut and establish a news
paper, and support a corrupt Statt
. regime, abd criticise the people of Con
neotiout, and reflect with severity upoi
tho past of the State, and undertake t(
direct public sentiment, aud to contro
things, and to play the deuce in particu
. lar, helping to bring upon the people o
Connecticut the law of the sword ant
injuring their business. We ask yoi
would you not regard that Son th Caro
limab as having the impudence of tb?
devil himself ? .' Answer that. 'And yet

Tho Union, of yesterday, coutainB a
letter from Mayor Pillsbury, wbioh tho
Charleston CouYier bad refused, to pub
lish, on. tho ground tb ut it believed that;
tho d?cumeot? forwarded by tbe Mayor'
was golton up either by tbe Mayor or
ouo of bia parky, for political effect.
Tho following ?B what Mayor Pillsbury
saya ia the Ku Klux document received
by bimi , ,
^'CHARLESTON, October 23, 1871.

Union. Thia thing speaks for itself.
Points Well Put amt W?ll'Takcn.
Tho Courier.Journal, a Kentucky
paper, says that u<r sano mao will deny
that whutever lawlessness there may
have hoon in South Carolina-to take tho
moat conspicuous of current examples
is the result of intolerable mul-ndmints
tratiou. Nor, it adds, will any fair
minded'mun deny that the whole power
of the dominant party at Washington
bas been used to support the bordes of
pillagers whoso rapacity baa drawn
equally from the ignorance of tho con?
ventional types of corruption and from
au abnormal'state of viciousness. Tiri?
ia true, aye, very true. The Courier
Journal also pointedly says that the scene
of these Southern disorders is, unhappi?
ly,; remoto from mapy of the Staten
where they aro viewed as hy a telescope,
tho magnifying end of which is turned
upon ono party whilst) tho other party, if
ohsorved at all, appears, only at tho end
of tbe glass which is known to produce
the opposite effect. By this optical de?
lusion a Ku Klux becomes a sort of giant,
or dragon, whilst the Radical incendiary is
reduced into the proportions of a harmless
dwarf, not big enough lo hurt anybody and
scarcely big enough to be seen. This is
true, oyo, very true.
Suppose u man, known as a promi?
nent nativo born or adopted citizen of
this State, were to step into a barber?
shop, and declare himself thus: "Would
to Heavcu we could get tho escuso foi
hanging every Northern man ia thc
c Humanity to the city lamp-posts, and
for driving off every one of their wives
and children," would not this nen timen I
bo deemed iuhumau, mulicious und atro?
cious? Wo think BO. We certainly
should HO deem it. And yet, tho souti
meut uttered by Mr. Hogo was quite ai
outrageous.-if uot more so. Well maj
tho Union admit that Mr. Hugo's lau
gunge deserved rebuke, and get "frone
ander." We observo, by-the-wuy, thal
we anticipated ona point that the Unioi
wanted to make. On Saturday, it wautei
to demand-big word-tho "prominen!
Radical's" name. On Sunday, it got it
and a P'. S. was the result.
A Cuitious CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION
Tho defeat of the proposed costitutioua
amendments in Rhode Island has causei
an animated discussion of the'Constitu
Hon as it stands. The second Bectioi
discriminates against tho foreign citizen
who cannot vote ut nil without tho pro
perty qualification. This is thought bj
many politicians to be inconsistent witl
the fifteenth amendment to the Conntitu
tion of the United States, Tho Provi
dence Journal, however, defends thi
State Constitution, and asserts that tb?
fifteenth amendment was draftod pur
poBely so as to avoid all interference witl
tho Rhode Island provision; otherwise
the Journal says, it was understood a
the timo that that State would refuse ti
ratify it, and ua tho voto of overy Re
publican State was needed, thu won
"nativity" was struck out of tho firs
draft, and the words-"race, color or pre
vious oondition of servitude," were aub
stitutcd. This is tbe version of Senato
Anthony, who is the editor of the Jour
nal. He ought to know the history o
that amendment, and this fact show
how u very little Stale may exeroise i
(urge influence- upoo tho legislation o

A Democratic newspaper mentions i
as "a significant fact" that os soon a
Governor Warmoutb, of Louisiana, an
nounoed that bo bad refuged a bribe o
$50,000, lie was immediately repudiate*
by tho Grant administration. But tb
administration did not know that bo re
jeoted tho bribe only because it waa aim
ply not large enough. He demaudei
$75,000, wbiab was refused, and thu
was what bo was mad about. If tb
President had understood thia foatnro o
the Louisiana muddle, be would no
have thrown Warmoutb overboard. Bu
be always said be could not get hold o
tho merits of that quarrel.

EDITOU DAILY PHO?SIX: I notice, in
your issue of tho 2Nth instant, thu fol?
lowing extract from Hie Uuiou Times:
"Tho evideucu giveu iu tbe trial of
Cannon and Palmer, for tho murder of
poor Matt. Steveus, shows that June
Alobley, a renegado member of tho Le?
gislature from Lhis County, promised to
take ammunition to the gang of men on
gaged in that, terrible and malicious
murder. Tho law will be vindicated,
sooner or later."
1 desire, through -your valuable
columns, to pronounce Ibo charges mude
as maliciously false} which the citizens
of Uuiou County, as well us the editor of
too Uuiou Times, uro well avaro. Thc
tuet of my having to lice lor my lile,
which necessitated my forced r?sidence
iu this city, is as well known in Uuiou
Couuty as the fact that no prominent
Republican dare reside there. If 1 have
beeu guilty of any breach of tho law,
und they uavu the evidence to convict,
which they claim to have, whj' have no
proceedings been instituted tor my ap?
pearance before tho Court of (lencial
Sessions to answer? Boing a law-ubid
ing citizen, aud at all times desirous that
tho majesty ol tho law be vindicated, 1
challenge them to proceed uguiust me, as
I um satisfied that the only charge thut
can be proven is tho desire to elevate my
own race iu thut Couuty. Very respect?
fully, J. S. MO ULEY.
FATAXJ ACCIDENT. - Ou Saturday morn?
ing, u fatal acculent occurred iu Am?
herst street, which resulted in tho in?
stant death of Mr. Richard Tobin, an
.aged cilizeu. Mr. Tobin was in the
habit of rising ut a very early hour and
pacing up und do wu his piazza for exer?
cise until tho arrival of the morning
paper. Ou tho morning in question he
rose as usual while thu other inmates of
tho ho.-.sc were yet in bed, aud lt iii sup?
posed in looking over the balustrade, to
see if tho puper had yet been thrown
into tho yard, bo leaned a little too far,
causing him to loso his bulauco aud fall

below, a distance of ubout twelve feet.
Airs. Tobin board the sound uf the full,

ground with thu right sido of his head

While Cbicugo was burning, aud tho
whole North-west seemed about to bo
oousumed by vast armies of flame, Mr.
Graut could think of nothing better
to do than to declare martial law over a
largo part of Soutb Carolina. Tbe pro?
clamation was written for him iu Wash?

NATIONAL FINANCES.-Secretary Bout
well, as a gentleman recently from
Washington informs us, is the most, dis?
gusted official in the Government ser
vico. Ha isn't pleased with some of his
most conspicuous subordinates, bat be
oaurjot help himself. He eua neither
reform them, jWbite-wi-au them, uor re?
move them. Ho complains of them in a
querulous tone to the President, but the
obief is apathetic; he receives tho appeal
coldly, uud smokes on complacently,
and the objectionable incumbents of
good places ure .left to.stick. ' -Then bis
foreign uegotiatioa of bonds hus mud?
dled his fingers. Ho announced th nt be
hud placed the remainder of the 3200,
000.000 loan, and tho delivery of tho
bonds commenced. When the iirst of
thu month came, how should he make
up his debt statement? If lie added the
bonds handed ever to tho syndicate to
his issues, then the volume of the debt
increased, and this the law forbade If
ho made the proper allowance for inte?
rest, then tho bouds were sohl at from
two and a half per cent, to three per
cent, below par, and this was forbidden.
So ho says that lin han sold the bonds,
aud tito syudicato say that they have
bought them, and the deliveries from
their hands prove that there has been un
issue on some terms; hut the official
debt statement recognizes nona of these
transactions, either in tho increase of
the bonded debt or the receipt of tho
cash equivalent. Then, nguiu, it is said
that tins bad management hero and thu
equally bad mani pu lut ion of a Ibu rs in
London by the two Treasury agents, who
really have u branch Treasury Depart?
ment there, have so embarrassed the
syudicate that, even with all their pluck,
energy and smartness, they huvcu't made
thu thing r?o as they expected, and may
have yet to throw part of the bonds
back on liui IKUKIS. We think Mr. Bout
well's disgust is not unreasonable; wu
share it ourselves, and most of our read?
ers ure Rtifferiug from the Rame experi?

The Courier Dtplomati'/ue, of Paris,
publishes .a communication, which, it
says, comes from a diplomatic personage
of high rank, making important revela?
tions iu regard to tho negotiations which
preceded tho war between Denmark and
the allied powers-Prussia and Austria.
Tho statement is, in substauce, us fol?
lows: "In 186-f, Earl1 Russell, then Bri?
tish Minister of Foreign AlTairs, made
overtures, through Lord Cowley, British
Ambassador at. Paris, to M. Rouher, pro?
posing an alliance, offensive and defon
aive, with France to help Denmark, in
caso Prussia and Austria should deelaro
war against ber. England was to co?
operate with Franco hy Bea and laud,
aud was willing to promise France, ia
return for ber uHsistuuce, a rectification
of her frontiers on the Rhine by tho an?
nexation o? a portion of tho Rhenish
provinces. M. Hon li er asked time for
the consideration of these proposals, but
in three days from the time they were
laid before M. Rou her, the Emperor Na
poleou accepted them. Lord Cowley
immediately communicated tho fact of
the Emperor's acceptance to his govern?
ment, whereupon Earl Russell replied
that it Was too late, us her Majesty's Go?
vernment, had decided not. to interfere in
tho ease of Denmark. This closed the
negotiations, and .JO attempt was made
to rc-opon the subject."

David Smith, of Georgia, is recovering
from a rattlesnake bite, after taking three
drinks of spirits of turpentine and two
and n half bottles of whiskey. There
ought to be a law compelling snake
bitten patiente to confine themselves to a

It in proposed at Chicago to erecta
i monument in commemoration of the
great fire, to be composed of all the
damaged aud nseless safes recovered

The freedom of the press does not, we
hold, warrant a trial justice in firing at a
reporter, but if wo should unfortunately
become a target for some irate man, we
hope that ho will fire as badly as Mr.

shall fire, if at all, with more success
than did the Neio's reporter, who stood
his ground so bravely.' However, thu
is too grave a subject for ? joke-as Mr.
Berry will no .doubt say with us. '
