The Bceacsaicsi Administration.
The Grant organs, as did Morton and
the other trumpeters of Grant's praises,
nt the meeting held some time since in
New York, to endorse his administra?
tion, claim that the affairs of the country
'have been very economically conducted
einco Grant's advent into power. In
their apologies for him, they assert that
though not a brilliant Chief Magistrate;
-though reconstruction had not. been as
happily developed as was hoped four
-years ago; though the Santo Domingo
soheme was not very wise, or a very cre?
atable undertaking for the President of
-the United, States; though there have
'been great frauds in the Custom House,
-and in many of the departments of the
-Government; though, in short, Grant
.has proved but a sorry official in many
respects, still, as Morton pnt it, the peo?
ple see and feel that be is a "safe man;"
the public credit has been sustained;
aud, wonderful to say, there has been
near $300,000,000 of the public debt j
liquidated in three years, without any j
increased taxation of the people. Now,
-as to the economy of Grant's administra?
tion, there needs but a oomparison of the
-amounts consumed in oarrying on the
. Government by Grant with that expended
-tinder Mr. Buchanan's administration,
?to show how groundless is suoh an asser?
tion. That there is a very heavy ba?
llance in favor of Mr. Buchanan's term,
the Grantites are compelled to admit,
but account for it by alleging that the
-increase of population, the interest on
the publia debt, pensions to soldiers,
-&o., more than cover the margin. This
.may do for a bald-faced statement, or
"even plausible argument; bnt let us see
bow the matter Blands when we reduce
it to figures, which do not lie. The fol?
lowing estimates were made by Hon.
-James Brooks, in a speech some time ago :
.Add for increase population
22 per cent.. 12,320,000
For pensions. 28,000,000
.For depreciation of currency 7,000,000
Interest on public debt. 115,000,000
jForIndian expenses......... 3,000,000
Sinking fund, 1 per cent... 11,600,000
That this is an exceedingly liberal)
..estimate, any candid mind will admit.
"Every possible excuse and plea for in?
creased expenditures is granted and folly
provided for. Now, let os see what re
. ceipta hare been had during the last |
.year. They are as follows:
Collected from customs_$206,270,408
.Collected from internal re?
venue. .... 143,008,153
-Collected from sale blio
.Collected from m i set ane?
?os sources. 31,566,736
Total net receipts.$383,323,043
The amount as above esti?
Excess of collections over
actual needs of Govern?
Here, then, is one hundred and fifty
/millions surpluB funds, which have been
?wrung from the people in one year. We
.have no means of knowing precisely
what the receipts were for the two years
preceding. If we are not mistaken,
though, they were much heavier than
for the last fiscal year. But if they were
-no greater, we should still have for the
three years $450,000,000 of surplus mo?
ney. Something less than $300,000,000
?of this bas been applied to the payment
of tho public debt, and there is still left
$150,000,000 unaccounted for, or, at
least, extravagantly expended. What
merit is there in this payment of the
publia debt? If it had been done by
economical management, or skillful
financiering; if the machine had been so
run as to eave this mach, there might be
somo claim for credit to Grant's Admi?
nistration for doing it. When, though,
thc- expenditures of the Government are
mn np $150,000,000 more than they
.should be, and this surplus fund simply
eo muon extra taxation on the people,
thereto no great thing to boast of, surely.
-Grant either had to devote the money to I
the pnblio debt, allow it to lie idle, or !
.-pocket it. His worst enemies have never
accused him of being personally disho?
Make as much of it as his friends may,
the muoh-abueed Andy Johnson did far
moro than he towards paying off the
pnblio debt, Daring Johnson's admi?
nistration of two years and nine months,
we have it upon the authority of Mr.
Seeretary Boutwell himself, that $1,066,
000,000 of the pnblio debt was paid
off. Thia is over three times aa muoh as
has been paid off under Grant in three
years. No one ever thought of attribut?
ing any special merit to Andy Johnson
for this, though Mr. Bontwell says it
was done by extraordinary efforts, aa
well ae hy extraordinary taxation.
Nomination of Air. Greeley*
It will be gratifying to tbe friends of
reconciliation, re-union and reform
throughout the land to learn that the
grand consultation at Cincinnati has
ended in the nomination of Horace
Greeley for President. To the South it
will be especially pleasing, for he hus
been tbe steadfast obampion of our op?
pressed section ever sinee the war; and,
if there be one Northern man more than
any other who has endeared himself to
oar people, it is he. Mr. Greeley has,
too, every element of success in him,
and is possessed of the high qualities of
head and heart that befit a man for the
lofty position of chief magistrate of a
great peoole. He is a man of earnest
conviction! and well defined principles,
and is honest, consistent and unvarying
in acting np to them. He is, too, the
father of freedom to tho colored raoe.
For years and years before Grant was
ever heard of, he did battle in their be?
half, and, next to Mr. Sumner, there is
no one probably that oould succeed so
well as he in dividing the black vote with
Grant. A skeleton of the platform will
be found in our telegraphic columns. It
appears to embrace every principle that
any true conservative patriot, whatever
his past party affiliations may have been,
can demand. We believe the Democratic
party will sustain tho nomination and the
platform almost unanimously. We shall
give more extended comments hereafter.
The lateness of tho hour prevents fur?
ther remarks now.
When, in the discussion of any sub?
ject, your opponent palpably and wil?
fully misconstrues and misrepresents
your language and argument, there is an
end at once to all sensible controversy.
Suoh a course indicates either an ex?
tremely weak mind or a conscious disre?
gard of truth, and of the necessity of
suoh unfair argumentation to bolster up
a cause that has no real strength. The
Union, ot yesterday, represents ns as
saying that because Judge Carpenter was
nominated by the Beform party, he must
j have boen a Republican. There is just
about enough of semblance of truth in
this to.giva a coloring to the falsehood.
What we did say was this: "The Union
very well knows that so far from being a
Democrat, R. B. Carpenter was nomi?
nated by the Union Reform party, two
years ago, for Governor, solely on ac?
count of his being a Republican, and the
best one that united with the white peo?
ple in the effort for reform."
The wilful mis statement of the Union
is patent, and waa evidently made with
a view to make us appear guilty of the
same absurdity in which the Union had
involved itself, in alleging that Shrews?
bury was not a Republican because he
attended the Tax-Payers' Convention, to
which Mr. Chamberlain wss also a dele?
gate. In another article on tho "city
bonds," the Union makes another wilful
misrepresentation of us. A single sen?
tence is taken from our article, and
twisted into making us seem to allege
that the City Council have the right to
dispose of the bonds at private tale.
The Union sets np its own man of straw
land demolishes him most thoroughly.
! If the Union had quoted the sentence
succeeding the one which it did quote,
there would have been not the least
possibility of misunderstanding us. But
no; that is not what the Union desires.
Without misrepresentation, it is totally
incapable of making any argument what?
ever. The conductor of the Union, we
will admit, has probably had more to do
with bonds than we have, and has dealt
in bonds more than in decent English or
honest disputation. What we desire to
prevent is too much dealing in the new
bonds to the detriment of tho oity.
SAD ACCOUNTS FBOM NEWBERRY AND
LAUBENS.'-Tho injury done to business
of all kinds and to farming interests in
the upper Counties, which are feeling
the iron hand under the Enforcement
Act, is beyond description. In this
County, there is soaroely anything doing;
in the town, business is almost dead,
with but little hope of recovery; while
on the farm, in a majority of oases,
there is little or nothing doing, and the
future prospect is indeed gloomy. And
while It is so with ns here in Newberry,
tho situation is much worse at Laurens.
A gentleman from there on Thursday
last says that daring the whole of one
afternoon, be saw but three persons out
shopping, one lady and two little girls,
?nd not a living soul in from the coun?
try. So fearful are some men of being
arrested and imprisoned, however inno?
cent they may be-so wide-spread is the
fear or demoralization-that in some in?
stances, it is said, farmers plough their
fields with saddled horses, ready to flea
on the approach of an officer of the Go?
vernment. The times oould scarcely be
The Baptist Year-book, for 1872, says
that in Georgia the Baptists number
145,254; Virginia has 129,385; North Ca?
rolina has 59,800; South Carolina hos
75,311. Every eighth person in Georgia
is a Baptist, and every ninth person in
Virginia and South Carolina is the same
EFFECT OF A COHBUPT JUDICIARY.-The
New York Evening Post remarks that
the terrible ferocity shown by the Cass
County (Missouri) "regulators" has a
deep significance for the inhabitants of
New York. It is not in the mere robbery
of the County bonds, nor in the conn i v
anoe of ordinary public officers, that we
fled the real cause of the intense popular
indignation whioh has already resulted
in wholesale murder and threats of fur?
ther violence. It is in the fact that the
people in large sections of the country
have lost confidence in the judiciary
itself, on which all law depends for its
proper execution. Confidence in the
administration of justice, in the purity
of the bench, underlies all other social
principles, and when that is entirely
lost, anarchy is inevitable. ID this case
in Missouri, two out of thiee judges of
the highest local court were directly in?
volved in the bond robbery, having
given their official order as a necessary
act in the conspiracy. It is observed
that the people of New York city do not
move with suoh ferocious rapidity as
those of Missouri, but the loss of confi?
dence in tho judiciary has been the most
serious result of the recently exposed
official corruption; and they are fortu?
nate, perhaps, in that city, that the
moral anarchy produced has cot resulted
in open violence. Might it not be fair
to take the same charitable view of acts
of violence in the South, provoked not
only by public but private robbery, and
oy the utter failure of the courts, under
tho dominating party there, to protect
the people from plunder, outruge and
cri mo in every form?
BONUSES EXACTED DY THE TARIFF.
Mr. Barchan!, of Illinois, member of
the Ways and Means Committee of the
House of Representatives, during his
reoent speech on tariff revision, under?
took to show that over 300,000 able
bodied men draw pensions from the
country through the tariff laws. He
read a schedule showing the namber
employed in each of the ten proteoted
industries of the couutry, and the amount
of "bounty" they receive per capita.
The tariff, he held, had largely dimin?
ished exports within ten years, and the
decline in ship building was also due to
it The salt bounty amounted to
92,350,000, of whioh $900,000 went to
the Onondaga Salt Company alone.
Pennsylvania received 324,000,000 boun?
ty annually, whioh was $20,000,000 more
than the pro rata share of her citizens.
The tariff exacted fifty couts a year from
every man, woman and child in the na?
tion to support the miners and iron?
workers of Pennsylvania. Tho paper
makers of New England, New York,
Now Jersey and Pennsylvania received
over 817,000,000, 810,000,000 of which
was exacted as a contribution from
other States. The manufacturers of
woolen goods secured a bounty exceed?
ing $50,000,000 annually, of which over
820.000,000 are collected by seven States
from the remaining States of the Union.
Massachusetts alone received $7,000,000
from other States. The cotton bounty
he estimated at $51,000,000, of which
Massachusetts got $17,000,000 and
Rhode Island $7,000,000.
A RIGHTEOUS CRUSADE.-The crusade
against dealers in foul meats, explosive
oils, &o., in Now York, is going on vi?
gorously. Last week not less than sixty
six dealers in explosive and dangerous
oils were arraigned and fined. But un?
fortunately, it appears, the fines aro not
so large as the profits to bo derived from
the business. The insurance agents
have lent a helping hand to tho officers
of the law by making war against the
sellers of naphtha and poor kerosene.
They do this very effectually by cancel?
ing tho insurance policies which cover
the buildings where such oil is kept for
sale. Dealers in impure food and adul?
terated milk are also being looked after,
but not so closely as they might bo. It
is believed that not 100 quarts of puto
milk aro sold in tho city of New York,
all tho rest bning moro or less adulter?
ABBIVAL OF IMBECILES.-In pursuance
of an Act passed at the last session of
the Legislature, providing for the send?
ing, to their respectivo Counties, of the
harmless imbeciles in the Lunatic Asy?

this city yesterday. They will have to
be cared for by the Connty, or their
friends, if they have any capable of ren?
dering them assistance.
FBOM RICHMOND TO WASHINGTON.-It
is stated that regular trains will run on

take the steamboat from Washington in?
stead of Aquia Creek, as at present.
They will save nearly an hoar in the
matter of time.

THE RECENT TORNADO.-Tho recent
blow appears to have done most damage
ou its first outrance into our County np
about Bull Swamp. A country friend
says that on O. B. Riley's place, it blow
dowu many houses, and carried off tho
top of tho gin hou?o. At James Ott's,
it blow down every house on tho place.
At Ephraim Graves', every house, except
the corn house. At John Murphy s,
left only the dwelling nnd saw-mill, lift?
ing tho grist mill from its foundations.
The mill was torn to pieces, and mill?
stones, measuring four feet by eighteen
inches thick, carried off about thirty
feet. AU the roads over which it passed
are blockaded by the uprooted trees.
Its width was about 200 yards. All
these places had dwellings and out?

who had hidden between the bed and
mattress, out of tho house, bed and all,
and "rocked ber to sleep" in the yard.
LITTLE BOY BURNED TO DEATII.-The
