COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday xLorning. April 21,1872.
The Two Meeting!.
The great success of the liberal Re?
publican meeting, held at Cooper Insti?
tute, far exceeded general expectation.
The numbers present, but more espe?
cially the rousing enthusiasm and hearty
sympathy with- which the speakers
Sohnrz and Trumbull were greeted, gave
at once an impulse and encouragement
to the reform movement that has quick?
ened its young life in every part of the
Union. There are features, however,
in the late Grant meeting, held at the
same place, on Wednesday last, that,
perhaps, give more unmistakable evi?
dence of the hold whioh the liberalism
of the ooaree of Sohnrz, Trumbull and
Greeley bas taken apon the popular
heart, and *>f the growing disapproval of
Grant's administration, than did the
previons liberal meeting. Tim Grant
assembly was gotten np manifestly with
A view to dampen the ardor whioh the
.brilliant success of the anti-Grant m cut?
ing had created with the opposition.
"Tho idea was to have such an overpower?
ing demonstration in Grant's favor as to
throw completely in the shade the effort
-of the opposition. It was reasonable to
suppose that this could he done. The
reception of Schurz and Trumbull was a
spontaneous affair. There was no pre?
vious organization; no combination of
wealthy offloe-holders to furnish the
'-usual adjuncts and paraphernalia that
tend so much to give eclat and enthusi?
asm to large political gatherings; no
?ring of cannon; no wholesale use of
'the post office to send special invitation.
4o nearly every citizen of New York.
Yet what was the result? Though every
means and appliance known . to political
* strategy, to stir up the people, was used
by the Granites, it is plain to,every one,
who will read the proceedings of the
two meetings, that the last was a mani?
fest failure, when viewed sido by side
with the .former, and when it is remem?
bered, too, that it was intended to com?
pletely overshadow it.
In point of numbers, there waa but
little difference, perhaps. The immense
hall was filled to its uttermost capacity
on both ocoosiops. But the orowd was
mnoh slower in collecting at. the last
meeting. There was not the eager rush
for Beats as on the Friday before; and in
point of interest and enthusiasm, there
was a marked difference in favor of the
audience that appeared before Sohurz
and Trumbull. But that whioh, more
than anything else, ia gratifying and
oheering to tho opposition, in this Grant
meeting, and must be correspondingly
foll of alarm and chagrin to the Grant
ites, is the manner in whioh the attacks
upon Trumbull and Greeley were re?
ceived. Instead of hisses, as was ex?
pected, when their names were men?
tioned, loud and long-continued cheers
were given-showing that a large part of
the meetiug bud not attended from sym?
pathy with Grant, but were only present
from curiosity, while their oonviotionB
were entirely on the side of the opposi?
WHAT DOES ir MEAN?-Acoonuts from
Florida state that the United States
Marshal is looking out for Reed and
Secretary of State Gibbs, who adheres
to Reed's fortunes, with the view of ar?
resting them. By what authority do
Federal offioers iuterfere in this matter?
By whose instruotiou does the United
States Marshal for Florida li J in wait for
parties olaiming to be officers of a sove?
reign State? We would be glad to hear
an answer to these questions from Wash?
ington. Grant has no more legal power
to interfere with this State controversy
than he has to say whether Thiers shall
be President or Napoleon Emperor of
France. It is none of his business, and
this usurpation on the part of his offi?
cials should be resisted at every cost.
We are not in the midst of war that tho
President should enter a State and give
direotions to its local affairs. The con?
troversy, in this case, belongs exclusive?
ly to Florida, and eau be settled legally
only by her own courts and people.
AN ANOMALOUS KKTUBTJO.- Franco at
present is in rather an anomalous posi?
tion. With the name ff a republic, she
has, nevertheless, all the attributes of a
monarchy. Princes, dukes, counts and
other titled personages abound, and
orders and ribbons are bestowed with
the same lavish prodigality whioh marked
the Napoleonio dynasty. Theirs him?
self aooeptod only a few days since the
insignia of the Spanish order of the
Golden Fleeoe from Amadeus. He also
wears the grand cross of tho Legion of
Honor, a body whioh numbers 10,000
men, and whioh costs tho Frenoh Go?
vernment $1,500,000 per annum.
They have had four months of wiuter
in Canada, and have snow enough on
hand to make anothor month.
There appeared io the Union, of yes?
terday, a Bonrriloas uard from W. J.
Etter, the City Clerk, purporting to have
been called forth by our article of Sun?
day's issue, headed "Our City Finances."
With such a low, disreputable oharaoter
as the author of that oard, we will not
stoop to bandy filthy words; but, lest
some may be deceived by his denial of
having made the statements with regard
to the income and expenditures of the
city, as alleged by us, we havo takeu the
trouble to get the written testimony of
one who heard it. We give below a
statement from Mr. W. K. Baohman in
regard to the matter. Ho is a gentleman
of whose oharaoter and reliability we
need not speak. There is no one in
whom this community has greater confi?
dence. Our facts being thus substan?
tiated, the City Clerk may draw his own
inferences. If they make him out a
thief, os he complains, the fault lies with
him. We bad not supposed that he got
it all. But that is a question of which,
of course, be is better informed than we.
What isa matter of pablio concern, how?
ever, and what is now very manifest, is,
that a large Bum of surplus money-in
round numbers, $130,000, more or less
found its way into the City Treasury
last year, for tho disbursement of which
no aooount has been given, nor oan any
be conjectured, consistent with truth
I hereby certify that I was present on
the occasion when Mr. Etter, Clerk of
Council, made a statement to the Com?
mittee of Ways and Means of the House
of Bopresentativea as to the income and
expenses of the oity of Columbia. My
recollection is that Mr. Etter placed the
taxable property at $5,000,000, yielding,
say $50,000, and the inoome from
licenses of all kinds at about $50,000
more. I understood Mr. Etter to place
the income of the oity at about $100,000.
The expenses were: Ordinary expenses
of city government $35,000; interest on
bonded debt $27,000; leaving a balance,
after paying off expenses, of about
$40,000, in round numbers.
WM. K. BACHMAN.
The people of New Jersey havo loug
been regarded as an economical race,
bnt it would appear that they have been
under-estimated. At the last adjourn?
ment of the HOUBO of Assembly, the
members not only carried off all the
portable property in the ball, but took
the handsome ink-stands from the desks.
These ink-stands were fastened to the
doaks in the most substantial manner by
screws, but rapacious members, in their
greed for plunder, wrenched them off in
the most brazen manner, in the full light
of mid-day, and under tho eyes of gulle
ries full of shocked and disgusted spec
tators. Besides this, tho library WOE
more or less despoiled, and all tb(
towels, thermometers and everything
else, not too firmly fixed to bo dis
plaoed, was carried off. Wu take this ai
no reflection upon tho good people o
New Jersey, but as a substantial evi
dence of the decadence of politics. Even
year, representatives seem to be selectee
from a lower communal class, and whei
we reflect that not only ha J prize
fighters been elected to Congress, bu
that during a late session, ono membe
was convioted of bigamy, and ono triei
for forgery, we may well be alarmed fo
the durability of representative govern
TUE GREAT ARGUMENT.-The greu

the Grants organ is, thut ull who oppos

South. Tho question as to whether th

with the Southern people in anything
and any man or proposition must b
oondomned should they meet with favt

be long beforo this samo administrate

as reasonable as somo of tho polishe

Secretary of State Cardozo faroiahe?
the Union With the following aooonnt'of
bia rocont troubles on the railroad in
I desire to make a few statements in
your paper, about the manner in whioh
I was treated at Atlanta, Georgia, last
night, while returning borne from the
National Colored Convention, at New
Messrs. Pansier, McKinley, Frost and
myself left Charleston on Friday morn?
ing, the 5th inst., to attend the Conven?
tion ut Now Orleans, as delegatos from
South Carolina. When we arrived nt
Augusta, and were about to start for At?
lanta, we went into-, the sleeping oar to
engage berths for tho night. The con?
ductor retuned to accommodate us. I
then showed kim a letter from Mr. Full
man, the President of tho Pulaoo" Car
Company, which has the monopoly of
that business, I behove.
That letter was one of tho terms of tho
following compromise, proposed by Mr.
Pullman to mo last January, and accept?
ed by me, and was obtained under tho
I WOB ejected from one of Mr. Pull?
man's sleeping cars last June, and in?
stantly brought suit ugaiust him for
$5,000. He requested au interview, and
proposed the following terms UH U com?
FirBt. Ho should is ;uo a general order
to all his conductors throughout tho
United States to make no objection to
any man on account of his color.
Second. Ho should give me a letter
permitting me to ride at any time on tho
carno terms as others, should conductors
Third. He should pay all legal ex?
penses incurred by me, thus far.
I accepted Mr. Pullman's terms, as my
object was my rights and the rights of
colored men, and not his money.
When the conductor refused us per?
mission to remain in tho sleeping car,
and I handed him the lotter referred to
above, I asked him if ho had not received
any "general order," as Mr. Pullman had
agreed. He said he hud not. After
reading my letter, he told me I could
stay, but my three friends must leave. I
told him I would keep with my friends,
whether they decided to go or stay.
They refused to leave. The conductor
ordered the porter not to make up our
beda, and the intended sleeping car was
not different to us from a wuking car.
Soma time after, during tho night,
the conductor asked mo to show bim my
letter once more. I suspected some?
thing wrong, and asked him what he
wanted with it again. He said that
there was a director of the Georgia State
Road on board of his train, who threat?
ened to have bim dismissed the next
morning at Atlanta, and he wished to
show the letter to Mr. Pullman's agent,
to protect himself. I immediately hand?
ed him the letter, requesting him to
scud it to ma at New Orleans the next
day. He never sent it; at any rate, it
never reached mo.
On our return from Now Orleans, my
friends and I parted; they returned im?
mediately homo after the Convention
adjourned, and I remained a day or two
behind to visit some friends. The>
passed through Atlanta on Wednesday
night, and went right into tho smoking
car. I arrived in Atlanta yesterday af?
ternoon, and went to tho cars ut 8
o'clock. I was entirely alone. I imme?
diately went to the sleeping car to ob?
tain u berth, which was promptly and
positively denied me. I then asked the
conductor, (who was a diff?rent person
from tho ono that took us down,) if he
had my letter? Ho said ho did. not. I
then asked bira if ho had heard of it,
and our passing through a fortnight pre?
viously? "1 have, indeed," he Baid.
"Do I understand that you refuso me
accommodations?" I asked him. "I
do," ho replied. 1 then said: "Mr.
Conductor, you have the power to keep
mo out, but I have tho right to go in.
Tho door is locked and you have the
key, aud aro master of the situation; but
I protest against your treatment, and
givo you notice that I will renew my
suit against Mr. Pullman on account of
your treatment, und I will not accept
uuy compromise this time."
1 thou attempted to go iuto the regu?
lar first class day-car. Tho doors wort
locked, and tho conductor politely in?
formed me that colored persons were
not allowed to ride in those cars-that ]
must go into the smoking-car. Ho ex?
pressed sympathy for me, but said his
orders were imperativo. I thanked him
for his sympathy, and told him I had nc
failt to find with his treatment; that 1
knew bo was simply an executive officer,
currying out the orders of his employers,
the directors; but I informed bim also,
at the samo time, that I remained out
under protest, and would seok my re
dress from the courts, if colored mer
could got any jastico nt tho bands of the
Democrats in Georgia. At this point,
about ton or twolvo white men guthorec
around the platform where tho conducto)
aud I wore quietly and politely speaking
as I have related. A young white mai
then carno up on the platform to me ant
asked me if I was Cardozo, the Secretary
of ?State of Sonth Carolina. I told bia
I was. He then took me by the arm ant
uttompted to drag me oil tho platforn
amongst the crowd, saying he wished tc
seo mo.. The thought instantly floshet
through my mind that this person mean
mischief, and that thoro were those it
the crowd who meant to help him. I
therefore, released myself and refused
to leavo the platform, and stepped back
ward into the smoking-car. He pursuec
me there, and after using tho most abu
sive and threatening language, ho drev
off to strike mo. The conductor thei
interfered and protected me, and ejectet
this person from the car.
I am perfectly satisfied in my owi
mind that this wus n dolibcrato cou
spirnoy to assault me and murder mo. if
resisted. I certainly would havo boei
murdered, for I would rather have diei
on the spot than tamely submit to sue!
an uucallcd for and unprovoked assault
Tue timely interference of the con?
ductor, ana hi? starting his train imme?
diately, I believe, saved my life.
Now, Mr. Editor, the simple foots
need no words of comment from me;
they teach their own lesson. It is a spe?
cimen of the boasted freedom and pro?
tection the Deco o oratio party of Georgia
give the colored man; and yet the Demo?
crats tell us they are our best friends.
God save ns from HU ch friends 1 I do
earnestly bone and pray that my right
hand may lose its cunning, and my
tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,
before I should ever use them to give
such men power, in either our State or
National Government, and I think in BO
determining, I speak the sentiments of
intelligent and leading colored meu.
Yours, truly, JA L. CARDOZO,
Secretary of State, South Caroliua.
BRIGANDAGE IN EOROPE.-With tho
disappearance of the diligence, and the
introduction of the 6team engine, travel
in Southern Europe, it WUB feared, would
loso all tho romantic excitement of a well
reguluted brigandage. But tho appre?
hension seems to have beon unfounded.
Tho Spanish bnndit, ul least, is adapting
himself to tho now order of things with
an*ilacrily surprising in that most con?
servative of lands. He thinks no more
of stopping a railway train than ho
would in olden times of making u stage?
coach stand and deliver. Within a
month or so ono or two trains have been
so Btoppod, and plundered, almost in
sight of Madrid. So thore is balm yet
in Gilead for tho wondering lovers of
romanee. Presently we shall have Capt.
Kidd turning up again, and running off
with n mail steamer, after making nil the
passengers walk the plank.
ASTONISHED ATTORNEYS.-A few days
since, the Southern Claims Commission
examined tho cuso of Christopher Ger?
hardt, of Bichmond, Va., who claimed
nearly ?14,01)0. Tho claimant, in euer
getio terms, testified to his devotion to
the Union from first to last, aud dis?
claimed any sympathy toward tho Con?
federate Government. This was all very
well, aud his attorneys felt sure of their
case. Their astonishment, then, was
profound, whoa the other sido produced
u sworn statement addressed by their
client to the Confederate Secretary of
War in 1861, iu which ho applied for the
discharge of his son from the Virginia
volunteers, ou tho ground that ho could
be of more sorvico to tho Southern causo
by aiding his father to fill a contract for
the manufacture of swords and cartridge
boxes. This, as a matter of course, was
unanswerable, and the disgusted lawyers
at once bundled up their papers and left
Gerhardt to his fate.
A TniRTT VOTE VICTORY.-The New
York Express soys Connecticut elects
Jewell, not by 2,000 or 1,500, ivs stated
ou Tuesday, nor by 500, but by a paltry
majority of some thirty rotes in a poll
of over 03,000. Tho Legislature is Re?
publican simply because the State was
gerrymandered in favor of the s;mull
towns, and without the least respectJor
popular right or fair play. Wo see' by
this voto how easy it would bo for a full
Democratic voto to have defeated Go?
vernor Jewell at thu ballot-box, and how
perfectly easy the oleotion could have
been thrown into tho Legislature, us
last year. Without enormous Federal
patronage, the Republican party could
not possibly hold their own, either in
New Hampshire or Connecticut.
TORNADO ON STEELE CREEK.-We learn
that on Wednesday afternoon last, quite

Beotion of tho County, doing considera?

the buildings of Mr. Steven Gallant were
unroofed, aud the buildings of Mr. Cro

tained considerable loss in tho way of

suspension will, we suppose, be asked
for by Maj. Corbin and Marshal Wallace.
