"?O THB SpiTOK O? THU ADVANCE: A
year ngo?#/waa placed iu charge of the
Western Union Telegraph office, located
at thia pointy o little village on the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Kail
road, in the District of York. I am
thus in. ono of tho Counties in which
martial law. prevails at this time. A
Northern man by birth and education,
I came to tho South expecting to en?
counter bitter prejudices, to meet with
coldness; I heard and put faith in the
malicious and slanderous reports which
a coi t tin class of Northern politicians
are so industrious in spreading. I was
of oonrse prepared for insult and rude?
ness; but far from this being the case,
I have met with uni versal kindnesu and
courtesy from the ci ti zeus of this place.
A years residence in the South has suf?
ficed to exoite in me sentiments of sin?
cere regard and esteem for theso brave
and true-hearted, but down-trodden,
ruined and outraged people. They are
now tho victims of snob cruel tyranny,
aud are Buffering so much from gross in?
justice and unrighteous oppression ut
tho hands of tho" Federal Government,
that I cannot refrain from doing what
little may lie in my power to call the at?
tention of the country to tho arbitrary
proceedings now being carried on in tho
upper Districts of Sooth Carolina, and
tu aid in the work of arousing the mcu
of the Northern States to a sense of the
galling, grinding despotism to which
these unfortunate pooplo aro being
subjected. Tho nine Counlios placed
under martiul law compriso one of the
fairest portions of the State. It is tho
up-country of South Carolina, a lino
cotton and graiu land, quite thickly set?
tled by a thrifty, industrious yeomanry,
whose ancestors were mostly Scotch aud
Irish emigrants froth the Southern por?
tions of Pennsylvania. There were few
large slave-holders in this part of the
State. The negroes now aro io n mino?
rity in all of these "rebellious" (?) Coun?
ties, except'two or three. When mar?
tial law was declared, profound peuce
prevailed throughout these Counties.
It was in tho muidlo of October when
President Grant's proclamation declar?
ing us to be in a state of rebellion burst
like a thunderbolt from a cloudless sky
upon tho people of this country.
The farmers at the time were busy
gathering iu thoir corn and cotton, tho
negroes were hard at work. No Ku
Kluxiug was going on; no Union League
outrages were being committed; no dis?
turbances of any hort were occurring.
The country was at peace and entiioly
free from all domestic violence. Party
spirit was touing down, partisau animo?
sity was being allayed, and nu ora of
general prosperity aud good feeling be?
tween the blacks and whites wai begin?
ning to dawn upon these* people. They
were not in "a statu of rebellion.'
There wus uo resistsuco to State or Fe?
deral authority. Thero were no armed
and organized bauds of men opposing
tho execution of the laws, obstructing
the course of justice, or euacting domos
tio violence, us is alleged by tho admi?
nistration iu Washington. The hurst
measures adopted by the Federal au tho
rities for the suppression of the Ki
Klux Klans of this State, are not onh
unnecessary and uncalled for by tin
State authorities, but aro cruel and in
human; totally unworthy of the Amen'
can people. 1 live hero in the heart o

I tell you the manner in which thu lan

tho manner in which the military aro ar

all law had been set aside. The peopl
are as completely at the mercy of tb?
soldiers as if it were war times. Arrest

part o? the whiten. Hememht-r that ali
the courts of thu State were iu the bauds
of the negro party. With pur tinao judgfa.?
aud negro juries, it was next to imposai?*
ble to conwict a negro of auy crime
which he had committed upon a while
mau. Tho negro might nteul aud burn
and murder, with tdcuoel absolute impu?
nity. And they did burn, steal and
murder with u savage fury in keeping
with (he instiucts of their barbarous
race. In (he short space of two months,
in this County, thirteen barns, gin
houses and dwellings were burned down
by black incendiaries; in cue night, as
many us four barns were seen burning
withiu sight of the village of Yorkville,
the County ?eat.
No white mau felt auto iu bis bouse at
night; he knew not ut what moment the
torch would bs applied tc his dwelling.
I, myself, a Northern man, and, at that
time, a four mouths' resident of the
South, aided the white men of this little
villuge in guarding the place at night
agni ii at negro i uce edi aria m . And for all
this burning, none wits punished by the
courts; what was the consequence?
Barn-burners were hung by men in dis?
guise, aud their aiders aud abettors were
whipped or driven from the country.
This retributive justice is what is known
as Ku Ki axing. It was lawlessness or
uo law ut all. The white people were
driven to desperation. They were com?
pelled to resist violence with violence,
and to usc thc huller and scourge against
the men who wielded the Winchester
rifle and tho torah. The mysterious
riders of tho "Invisible Empire" did
their work with a vengeance; there is no
doubt of that; but they stopped tho
barn-burning, and forced Gov. Scott to
disarm his militia in some Counties.
After this tho country became quiet, and
the whites aud blacks wero beginning to
forget their past animosities and work
along together in peace aud amity, when
Grunt's proclamation fell among them
like a bomb-shell. From the confession
of Borne of the prisoners, it is nothing
more or loss thau looal bands of vigi?
lance committees; that they only exe?
cuted retributive justice. They were
not hostile to the United States Govern?
ment, and never, in a single instance,
rosi?ted lawful authority. Tiieoiguniza- i
tion, its objects, the number and extent)
of tho ucts of violence done by it, have ?
been greutly exaggerated by the press,
North and South.
In conclusion, I assert that this mea?
sure has beeu Bet on foot for political
purposes; that the country was in pro?
found peaae when the President of the
United Stator proclaimed it to be in re?
bellion . The civil arm was strong enongh
to huve enforced tho Ku Klux Act. This
war upon the Ku Klux is a war for
uegro supremacy under pretext of de- ?
strnying a secret organization alleged to ?
bo in opposition to the Federal Govern- .
ment. It is done to secure the triumph j
of the negro party in the South at the :
next Presidential election; that is the ,
long and short of it. Will the people of j
the North endorse thia action of the
Administration? Very respectfully,
