COLUJN?BIA, S. C.
Saturday Morning, May 18,1872.1
Tho Democratic Party to Spilt.
There are serions indications that the
approaching Presidential campaign will
result in a division of the D?mocraties
party and its final disruption. It ie ead,
in some respects, to contemplate the col?
lapse of an organization with whoso
record is linked so much that is great
and glorious in the past of our country,
and with the name of which the lives
and genius of so many of onr noblest,
purest and most gifted statesmen of days
gone by are inseparably connected. Our
Calhoun, MoDnffle. Hayno, and other
illustrious sons bf South Carolina were
Demoorats. Their mighty intellects sus?
tained, their virtues adorned the party.
In some way political parties become
personified, are looked npon as real and
distinct entities, and become" invested
with the oharaoteristics, and command,
in a great measure, that honor and
esteem whioh attach to the memory of
their greatest champions. It is this sert
of indefinable sentimental regard whioh
creates a pang of pain when one thinks
of the death, of an old and, in its day,
uBoful political party. But reason tells
us that there is not muoh cause for grief
in the dissolution of the Demooratio
party. Neither it nor its old competi?
tor, the Republican party, belong to this
day; and it is well that they should bc
pushed aside to make way for the fresh
and vigorous young life of Liberal
We should have preferred, however,
that it should die a different death from
that whioh now threatens it. It was our
hope that it wonld quietly, peaceably
and with one aooord among its members,
glide over and merge itself with the new
movement, and impart thereto the impress
of its time-honored prinoiples. Such an
easy, natural death does not seem to be
ia storo for the old Democracy. Those
who have hastened her death appear to
desire the fiendish pleasure of making
her last moments the occasion of wrang?
ling, dispute and dissension. The New
York World was among tho first, and
' continued till the announcement of Mr.
Greeley's nomination, to be one of the
most earnest advocates of a coalition of
the Demoorats with the Liberal Republi
* cane. The entire Demooratio press,
with the exception of the Atlanta Swi
Mr. Alexander Stephens' paper-favored
the idea. This combined and persistent
oourse of the press had its effect upon
the Democratio masses. They quickly
? learned to look with a friendly eye
upon the Republican reformers, ol
whom not the least prominent was
the honest old farmer of Chappaqua.
They became convinced that the only
hope of rescuing the country from thc
military centralism to which it is drift?
ing under Grant, and the corruption
and extravagance whioh pervades every
department to Buoh an alarming extent,
waB to look for realization in the Cin?
cinnati Convention. They were pre?
pared to receive favorably any honest
nominations that might be made, and
they have hailed with unmistakable sa?
tisfaction the name of Eoreee Greeley.
The World, whioh so industriously as
Bisted in paving the way for his recep?
tion by the Democracy, now turns upoc
bim, and, without rhyme or reason that
would not apply equally well to any
other Republican, demands or urges thc
repudiation of Horace Greeley, and thc
nomination of a straight-out Democrats
tioket. This is inconsistent and unfair
to say tho least of it, and accords so wei
with the manifest wishes of the Grant
ites, that the suspicion will intrude iteol
that the World is playing- Grant's hanc
for him. The Demooratio party was vir
?nally pledged by the party press
amoog the leaders of whioh is the Worh
-to suatain the liberal Republicans, i
the latter wonld inaugurate the flgh
with Grant, and oonduot it upon prinoi
pies not antagonistic, to essential doo
trines of Demooratio faith. This tho:
have done, beyond all kind of question
and for the Democracy to desert then
now wonld not be acting in good faith
even though we had no other induce
ment to do so. Tho World and its Bel
mont olique will persist, we donbt not
in opposing Greeley, sod will probabl;
succeed in persuading a small wi?g o
the party to make a nomination,.! t?hi
will bring a division and end in the vio
lent death bf the party, for tho South i
so overwhelmingly in favor of support
ing Greeley and Gratz Brown, that i
will ?ot vote with anything like nnani
mity for Demooratio nominees.
At beat, it wonld be almost a hopelei
oontest between Grant and a Demoorati
opponent, and when the party of th
latter is so disorganized as it now is, b
the Cincinnati nomination, to make th
fight ie the sheerest folly. Other S tat ci
in whioh there are large Demooratio mt
jorities, may join in the vain endeavoi
but Sooth Carolina will have nothing to
do with it. What we wish is relief from
carpet-bag misrule, whioh is - rapidly
rushing our State on to ruin and beg
gary. To get thia relief there must be
a concert of action between the citizens,
of both oolors. The bl auks will not
nnite in favor of a Demooratio Presi?
dent. The whites will not unite in favor
of Grant, who has identified himself
with our rascally State Government.
Greeley is our only hope. Ho is honest
abd kindly disposed, which is all the
white people care for at this time. He
is, furthermore, a stan nob and tried Re?
publican and the unflinching advocato
of freedom and equal rights to the
colored people, whioh is all that they
should ask for.
Tile Election of Senator Kerry.
Another strong proof of the crnmbling
of old party lines and of tho growth of
Liberal Republicanism, is manifested in
the re-election of Mr. Perry to tho
United States Senato by the Legislature
of Connecticut. Mr. Ferry has filled the
position with great credit to himself aud
satisfaction to his constituency, but ho
was pot an Administration member. In
the late gubernatorial contest, he
stumped the State for tho Republican
oandidate, but it was noted of him that
he had no praises for Grant. The
usurpations of the latter, the infringe?
ment upon the sacred rights of tho
States and the corrupt extravagance of
his administration, fonnd no apologist
in Mr. Ferry. His Republicanism and
his marked, abilities and spotless integ?
rity were unquestioned, but he had the
perverseness to believe that Grantism
and Republicanism were not synonymous
This singularity on Mr. Ferry's part
waa not appreciated by the ultra Radi?
cals, who, partly through blind hero
worship and partly through tho recipro?
city of kindred natures, adore the figure?
head that now adorns the White House,
and a caucus was hold and a Col. Hawley
fixed upon as a Radical better suited tc
their tastes to represent the State in the
United States Senate. Itr has alwaye
been the custom to return a Senator to
his seat for a second term at least, unless
he has betrayed public confidence in
some way, whioh could not be charged
against Mr. Ferry; and some of hie
friends and Liberal Republicans deter?
mined not to submit to the dictum of c
The Republicans had a considerable
majority on joint ballot, but by the una?
nimous support of the Democrats, the
Republican friends o! Mr. Ferry scoured
his re-election by a handsome vote.
Party oauouses are iniquitous organs ol
corruption and wrong, and we are glad
to see this outbreak against their thral
dom. Throngh their operation the ab?
solutism of a numerical majority is in?
tensified. If Senator Ferry's friends
had submitted to the decree of the part}
caucus, the result would have been thal
a minority of the Legislature would
have chosen the Senator.
MOSBY AND Git ANT.-A private lette]
from the gallant Viaginian, Colonel Johr
S. Mosby, is published, in whioh refer
ence is made to a reported oonversatioi
between Colonel Mosby and Presiden
Grout. Referring to that report, Colone
M. says: "I see I am reported as say inf
to General Grant that I would snppor
him 'even if a Democrat was nominated
against him.' I do not caro ab ou

but I hope my friends will not thin]

A GOOD PJQATFORM.-In a recent issn
of the New York Tribune, Horace Gree
ley used these words:
"The biggest thing before the peopl
is the question of honest men agains
thieves. What the country needs ant
imperatively demands is a reform in th
administration of Government."
These words were penned by Horao
Greeley before he was nominated by th

the admirers of the poet and the friends
of the man will have an opportunity of
co-opejatiug with tho publishers, who

cation a success worthy tho first of oar
At Borne future time, I shall give your
renders au account of tho operations of
the Agricultural Bureau in Washington,
so as to awaken the interest of oar
planters in one of the most important
institutions in tho United States. At
this time I can only indicate, in very
brief outline, the scheme introduced and
being carried out by Mr. Townsend
Glover, the entomologist of the Depart?
ment. This scheme embraces not only
collections of all insects, animals and
fungi that interfere with crop-growing,
but also specimens of the crops grown
in the several States-grains, textile
fabrics, and all other productions. Thc
result when completed (should the libe?
rality of Congress ever awaken to the
importance of the matter) will present a
caso for each State in which will bc
specimens of that Stato'ai productions in
their several stages of preparation for
use; full collections of thc animnls, in?
sects and other agencies that harm thc
crops; and mineralogical specimens, em?
bracing soils, subsoils and ores. For ex?
ample: The stranger, wishing to emi?
grate to South Carolina, would find there
specimens of cotton, rice, wheat, corn
und all other products of that State, all
in several ?tages of manufacturo up to
their marketable farm; and eide by side
with these, specimens of the boll worm,
ru3t, sap-suckers, squirrels, crab-grass,
?cc., kc, which interfere in any way
with th9 crops; and with these, speci?
mens of soils und fertilizers. With such
collection is to be published a book of
explanation of all these specimens, their
uses, abuses and modes of improvement
-these books to form part of tho annual
agricultural reports. South Carolina is
almost unrepresented there; and there is
need of all these things-seeds, grains,
growths, and all the rest. Full repre?
sentation there would bo promotive of
immigration, by affording more readily,
than any other way, the specific in?
formation needed by the immigrant and
tho immigrant agent. J. W. D.
WASHINGTON, D. C., May 15, 1872.
Living Writers of the South. Edited by
the Author of Southland Writers.
Claxton, Bernsen & Haffelfinger, Pub?
We have reviewed with sincere plea?
sure this welcome work, a comprehen?
sive and impartial gallery of pen-por?
traits of our fair Southern writers. We
return thanks to both editress and pub?
lishers for the useful and elegant volume
they have presented to the public. The
author, whoBe pseudonym is "Ida Ray?
mond," brought out in 1869 a similar
work, entitled "Southland Writers,"
whioh was but the germ of the present
volume. "Living Female Writers of
the South" embraces a much larger num?
ber of writers, and is bound in an ex?
quisitely tasteful octavo volume of 5GS
pages. It is a matter of wonder to us
that the author has been able to collect
such a perfect galaxy from every State.
In South Carolina, for instance, we have
noted only a few omissions. She hns
dedicated tho work to four gentlemen,
whose assisting labors she acknowledges,
most appropriately, in tho following
"T? John R. Thompson, of Virginin,
James Wood Davidson, of South Caro?
lina, Hon. W. J. McAdoo, ol Georgia,
Charles Dimitry, of Louisiana-a quar?
tette of Southern authors who have ever
kindly onoournged and judiciously ad?
vised tho 'Female Writers of tho
South'-this record of them is respect?
Through the medium of this attractive
volume "old familiar faces," dear to me?
mory, aro brought vividly back to us.
Some of these havo passed away forever.
Ia her introduction, she tenderly remem?
bers those whose voices are hushed in
death. And we are made to feel nearer
to many whom we havo known and loved
through their works only, and whom we
aro proud to claim as Southern sisters.
We are glad to say that oar own State is
not behind in talented women of high
literary tastes and aspirations. South
Carolina has the third largest number of
writers. The two of Colombia's daugh?
ters best known to the public, and of
whom she is justly proud, are found in
their proper plaoes in the gallery. The
ohief object of the editress in the publi?
cation of this work is the encouragement
ot Sonthern talent. She most justly
observes, in her preface, that it is not
"oreative power" that Southern writers
lack, but cultivation and otndy. In her
own words, "dillitanteism," the treating
of literature as if it were the: amuse?
ment of an idle boor, instead of a most
S;ravo and serious pursuit, on the right
ollowiag of whioh, to a great extent,
?our people's intellectual life depends,
has been the bane of Southern literature.
She therefore offers the volnme as an in?
centive to self-culture end the develop?
ment of the genius and talent of the
South, as well as a tribute to writers of
genuine merit. T.
Am LIMB.-The work on this road is
being vigorously pushed forward. The
bridge over Reedy River is being built,

THE POOR SOOTH.-Satan ia repre?
sented in the Scriptures aa a very active
and unscrupulous enemy. Ho is always
on the war-patb, devouring and oon HU Hi?
ing. He is a flt prototype of a Radical,
The latter ia aa hungry aa unprincipled.
He eats up and appropriates all that lies
before him. - His jaws are as wide as the
mouth ot Vesuvius, and his stomach a?
capacious as the continent. He has
already consumed and deatroyed for the
South over $240,000,000 worth of pro?
perty in lees than four years. He has
gone from one end of our desolated land
-from Virginia to Florida, and from the
Atlantic coast to the States that lie be?
yond the "father of waters"-and min
bas marked his path-way. The destruc?
tion of vegetation in Egypt by the
locusts was not mnch moro complete
than the devastation of this merciless,
insatiable enemy in our^ Southern land.
To And language terse and comprehen?
sive enough to express the devastations
of such a cormorant, you must betake
yourself to the Bible. Look where you
will in North Carolina or Tennessee, in
South Carolina or Mississippi, you wit
noss tho same terrible results. "That
which tho palmer-worm hath left, hath
the locust catlin; and that which the
locubt hath left, hath the canker-worm
eaten; nnd that which the canker-worm
hath left, hath the caterpillar eaten."
Take tho stutistics of Mississippi, and
you will see the frightful waste and de?
preciation in tho productive energy and
capacity of tho State. Tho negro, under
the manipulation of the scalawag, has
become too lazy to labor. He now plays
the gentleman, and being eminently an
imitative beiug, ho copies the manners,
and, sad to say, tho morals of his ally
und destroyer. Governor Alcorn shows
in his message to the Mississippi Legis?
lature, that in six Comities, embracing
every variety of laud nnd population,
tho fulling off in producing ability is"
astonishing. Tho value of the farms bas
fallen from $20.940,040, in 1800, to
?0,415,101, in 1370. Tho production of
cotton bas fallen from ll?.SSG bales, in
1SG0, to 42,830, in 1870. The produc?
tion of corn bas fallen from 3,307,140
bushels to 1,150,458 bushels, whilst the
swine bas diminished full sixty-five per
cent. A like decrease in production ex?
tended to all other kinds of crops. Bat
mark, whilst this vast falling off in pro?
duction was going on, there was a cor?
responding increase in the taxes. The
poorer they became, the heavier grew
the burdens. In 1800, these six Coun?
ties paid 3384,008 in taxes; in 1870, they
had grown to tba enormous sum of
?2,229,000, and was expected to reach
the stupendous snm o? ?3,000,000 by
These figures speak volumes. They
tell an alarming story of the villainy and
corruption of the Radical party. Be it
remembered that these figures are the
figures of a Radical-the Governor of
Mississippi at the time he made them.
We see it stated that the scalawags are
about to go upon a fresh raid against tho
South. They are also preparing to
"ease out" of the embarrassed condition
in which they find themselves, by mis?
representing and falsifying the statistics
of the South. According to the New
York World, they have already begun to
publish figures to show that the South

never otherwise than poor. Tho villains,

with the impudence of the dovil to turn
around and swear the poor Sonth never
had anything!-Raleigh Sentinel.
GOLD! GOLD! GOLD!-Abbeville Coun?
ty is destined to become the California
of South Carolina. Gold if the watch?
word of this age. Our County (says the
Abbeville Medium) abounds in rieh mine?
ral deposits, fine water power and good
land, and we are glad that new discove?
ries are being made. On Mr. Jacob
Miller's plantation, oight miles from Ab?
beville, valuable specimens of gold ore
have been found, and everything goes to
show that tho amount of gold is large.
Mr. Miller's plantation is situated on
Long Cane Creek, near Little Mountain,
and consists of very rich and productive
land. Tho mino is abont400 yards from
tba croek. The water power is immense,
wood is plentiful, the place is easy of
access, and it is, in fact, a place well
suited to the wants and wishes of the
minor. Mr. Miller proposes to prospoct
the ground further, and we hope to hear
favorable accounts, in a short time, of
vast treasures unearthed.
