Gen. ?I. B. Kerthawon tho Situation,
We publish elsewhere a letter of recent
date, written by Qen. Kershaw to a
friend, upon the course to be pursued by
the white people of the State in the Pre?
sidential campaign. The letter will be
read with interest by all who. have the
welfare of tho State at heart. The un?
selfish devotion to South Carolina, tho
commanding ability and the eminently
pore and manly character of Gen. Ker?
shaw, attach weight to any utterances of
a pablio nature whioh he may make,
and eooure for them the eager attention
of tho people. It will be found that the
writer maintains that the imperativo and
immediate duty of the citizens of South
Carolina is to redeem the State-to
pargo and reform our local government.
Upon this point we pr?same there is no
difference of opinion. The chief con?
cern which every one feels ia the cha?
racter of the next administration of the
General Government, is the effect it may
have to relieve us of or to perpetuate the
deadly evils of carpet-bag misrule.
Laboring ' under the emailing weight of
the injuries that oppress us here at home,
and conscious of the impending ruiu
from, which we can rationally entertain
scarcely a hope of escape, wo view with
comparative indifference the straggle to
bo made upon issues of a national cha?
racter, and which affect us only indirectly
The General disapproves of the resus?
citation of the Democratic party in the
State as impotent for good and likely to
work harm in the effort which it is hoped
will be made within tho ranks of the Re?
publican party to give us a more honest,
economical and efficient State Govern?
ment. Few will disagree with him here.
As an agenoy for good, tho Democratic
party has no longer any power in South
Carolina. The colored people have an in?
superable antipathy to that party, not sur?
prising nor al together irrational ; and they
have the controlling voice in the govern?
ment of the State, whether they exercise
it for good or for bad. The Democratic
party ia, therefore, au obstacle in the
way of establishing those relations of
friendship and mutual confidence be?
tween the races, which must bu estab?
lished before any permanent health can
be imparted to the body politic. We
say, then remove it, but with gentle
hands, for there cluster around it memo?
ries too sacred and tender to admit of
rode or ruffian touoh. We will join with
?ad satisfaction in Binging its requiem.
The analogy is so strong that we will
risk the blasphemy, and Bay that though
the body perish, its soul will live; and
we doubt not that if, in time to come,
the Democratic party be needed, some
Gabriel will be found, and maybe a
colored one, at that, to blow the resur?
recting cull. Nene, we take it, will
object to the quiet interment of the
body at this time, unless it be Mr.
Stokes, of Greenville.
The next point General' Kershaw
touch CB upon is the sending of delegates
to the Baltimore Convention, which he
thinks should not be done. This is
with us a mooted question. Tho induce?
ment to' send delegates is manifest. We
wish to prevent ? Democratic nomina?
tion, if possible. South Carolina will
have fourteen votes, and these might de?
cido the oouvention in favor of support?
ing Greeley and Brown. On tho other
hand, if we send delegates, and the con?
vention determines to place Democratic
nominees in the field, are we not bound
to abide the decision, and to do what we
can to promote the success of the tiokct?
and will we do it?
If there are any Domocrats in the
State prepared for the alternativo that
presents itself, let them go by all means,
and cast their votes in favor of the en?
dorsement of the Cincinnati nomination.
We agree with General Kershaw, too, in
advising the white people of the State
to observo a strict neutrality io the Pre?
sidential campaign, in so far, at least, aB
not to originate any movement among
themselves in. favor of any particular
candidate. Bnt we cannot indulge even
that faint glimmer of hope whioh he
seems to cherish, that any good oan
oome from Grant. Grant's chief charac?
teristic is dogged perseverance upon
whatever lino of conduct he has once
entered. He has encouraged, sympa?
thized with, and even supported with
his bayonets, the rotten and rascally
reg imo which controls South Carolina,
.nd he will continuo to do so as longeas
he has the power, and as long aa he con?
ceives it to be his interest to do so.
When be holds up, it will be because he
cannot longer oppress us, or because he
fears the Northern people, whoso voice
is even now strong in denunciation of
the role assumed by the present Admini?
stration towards the reconstructed States.
If ho becomes exasperated becauso wo
prefer Horace Greeley to bim, and
choose to seek a little pleasant variety
from the monotony of the sad thoughts
that oppress un, by flinging up our hats
for the old farmer of Ghappaqua, let
him be exasperated and be- well, we
wont say what-bot let him be exaspe?
rated. We scarcely think that he can
indulge in the pleasure of being exaspe?
rated against us any longer. Johu Bull
is giving him a dose now that will last
him to grumble about and exasperate
himself over Tor the balance of his life;
For him to turn from this and endeavor
to pat on "consequential" airs towards
Horace Greeley, or a few miserable
rebels that may hurrah for his old white
hat down here in South Carolina, would
make him the laughing stock of tho
Of course, it would be useless for the
white people to make any demonstra?
tions in favor of Horace Greeley, unices
there is a prior movement among the
colored people. This, though not oer
tain, ia not impossible nor improbable.
Horace Greeley bas been laboring all his
life, from the time when an abolitionist
was as muoh of a rarity at the North as
an honest official is now in South Caro?
lina, to secure equal rights for the co?
lored people. If they turn their backs
upon him, now that they have the first
opportunity of displaying their appre?
ciation of .his services, they will convict
themselves of the most shameless in?
gratitude. Wo are certain they will not,
if left to the guidance of their own good
sense; and we think, farther, that they
are sufficiently advanced in political ex?
perience to cat looso in a moasnro from
those who have misguided them in the
past. If the reform wing of the Repub?
lican party in the State take up Greeley,
whioh is the most natural and proper
thing for them to do, then the white
people will join in and give such a
rousing push from behind as to sweep
tho State and send the old philosopher
with a rush into the front door of the
White House, as Grant sneaks out be?
hind. If the darkies will not do any?
thing for Uncle Horace, we eau then
vote for the best Republicans for State
officers, and content ourselves with hur?
rahing for Horace, though we can do
nothing to help him.
MORE ANNEXATION.-Ii a report from
London is to ba Credited, our Adminis?
tration has again been seized with the
annexation fever, but this time tho
coveted real estato is situated in a cooler
latitude than San Domingo. It is ru?
mored that several of the Kurile islands,
iu the North Pacific, will be leased tb
the United States. Tho islands, twenty
five in number, extend from Kamtschat?
ka to Japan. Tho three Southernmost
belong to Japan, and the others to Rus?
sia. The islands are thinly inhabited by
a people of the Mongolian race, who are
chiefly employed in fishing. They have
but ooe good harbor, and would be of no
possible use to aa except perhaps as a
naval station. But if the inhabitants of
the island have heard of the enslave?
ment under the American flag of their
neighbors of the far-seal islands, we
think they will be opposed to a change
Among the r?solutions adopted at the
reoent Sunday Sohool Convention, in
Charleston, are the following:
Whereas we regard the Sunday sohool
a great auxiliary to the ohnroh, and es?
sential to the religious eduoation of the
young; and whereas we feel it our duty
to encourage every practical effort to in?
crease its interest and build np this in?

What Mr. Sumner Think?.
j Mr. Sumner baa never identified him?
self clearly -with the Liberal Republi?
cans, though he hoe been aa instru?
mental as any in exposing the corrup?
tions of Grant's administration and
denouncing the President's nepotism
aud unfitness to fill creditably the high
position he occupies. He is known to
be the implacable foo of Grant, and as
the nomination "of the latter at Philadel?
phia is a foregone conclusion, it is very
evident that Mr. Sumner will not throw
his influence against Greeley, at least.
He would be a powerful ally of Mr.
Greeley. Tho colored people havo such
a regard for aud confidence in him, that
wo fool oonvinced the Greeley and Brown
ticket would carry every Southern State,
if Mr. Sumner would declare in its favor,
and make a few speeches iu South Caro*
lina, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana.
He is probably awaiting with a little
hope the remote possibility of Grant's
being defeated, and some definite decla?
ration being made upon his civil rights
hobby by the Philadelphia Convention.
Wo think he will be disappointed upon
both points, and hopo then to seo bim
take the field emphatically for Groeley.
He would be of moro service iu thc ap?
proaching campaign thau any ten of the
Republicans who have lingered to sup?
port Grant's tottering fortunes. Since
the Cincinnati Convention, he has ob?
served the most guarded sileuoo us to
his future course, but he has lately ex?
pressed hi3 opinion upon a portiou of
tho Liberal platform, and upon the rela?
tive worth and prospects of Greeley and
Grant, in a way that shows all his pre?
ferences to be iu favor of the former. A
correspondent of tho Now York Herald
reports bim as speaking iu conversation
"The turill" plank nt Cincinnati was
the fairest and frankest I have ever met
with in my experience of political con?
ventions. Heretofore, such terms have
been used as a judicious tariff, a tax
affording incidental protection, ic,
whereby politicians could d?magogue
one way in Pennsylvania and another
way in Virginia. The Liberal Republi?
cans at Cincinnati made a compromise,
liberal and honest, confessing that they
could not deal in muss conveution with
the question, and remanding it to tho
people. The issue, therefore, lost none
of its importance, and the Convention
none of its liberal, fraternal and national
character. I felt that our politics had
become moro manly and less prevaricat?
ing when I road that plank."
The question was then asked, "Mr.
Sumner, will you appear iu this cam?
paign as a partisan of either Grant or
* Mr. Sumner said: I have beon per?
fectly neutral. I cannot support Grant
and keep my self-respect, or feel that I
am giving my friends sound advice. I
hope that the contest will be mude a

qualifications, the record and the law?

purely political, many persons will draw
the party line. It is, to my mind, just
now, a coutest between tho big letter G

Horaoe Greeley hos been an unselfish,
charitable, liberal, philanthropic man.
He bas ripened into one period. All
parts of the country appreciate bim, and
his name ia tho nymboi of good will and
lasting peace. I believe that if the issue
be made personal and put on the ground
of oharaoter, Grant will be hissed out of
the field. The Democratic party is re?
gaining the confidence of timid mon in
the North by its good behavior. The
Sooth has gone far to satisfy apprehen?
sions in the North by its magnanimity
toward Greeley. Nobody oould ever
charge Mr. Greeley with nepotism, the
sale of his influence, or any mercenary
selfishness. I think the big G will crush
out the little g.
HON. A. P. ALDRICH FOR GREELEY.
Judge A. P. Aldrich, of South Carolina,
in a letter addressed to J. P. C. White?
head, Esq., now of Missouri, says:
"I cannot answer for the Democratic
party; there has been no meeting of the
party in convention; tho only expres?
sion of opinion is in tho newspapers;
thoBO gonerally acquiesce. For myself,
I am very clear that the platform and
the nomination should not only be rati?
fied, bat that it is bad policy to have a
mooting of the Democratio Convention ;
it can do no good, and may do much
harm. I fear dissension and a split. As
the exeoutive committee have, howover,
determined to oall the convention, I
think tho wisest oourse to bo pursued is
to accept tho platform and adjourn with?
out reference to the nomiuation. In
my opinion, a much better policy for us
of the South is to send up no delegates.
But I suppose this is hardly possible.
"lu my opinion it is not only the
plain duty of ttye State, but of the South,
to support tho platform and ratify the
nomiuation by Declamation. I think a
meeting of the Democratio Convention
such .fi dangerous experiment tbat I
earnestly advise these down-trodden
Southern people to keep out of it. Oar
experience in New York, four years ago,
is,fresh in my memory."
The New York Herald of Friday says:
"The State Treasurer of South Carolina
is in the city, and is completing the final
arrangements with the Commercial
Warehouse- Company of this oity, for the

Letter from Gen, .1. B? Kershaw.
CAMDEN, 8. G.. May 14, 1872.
MY DEAR SIB: I am io receipt of jour
valued favor, and gladly avail myself of
the opportunity you afford rae of ex?
pressing my views of tho polioy proper
to be pursued by our people in the pre?
I esteem it our first duty to seek tho
rescue of the State from ruia and bank?
ruptcy, and the consequent expatriation
of many of her beat people. Oar action
in general politics should be controlled
by this prime necessity. If we can pro?
mote the establishment of a better Go?
vernment at Washington, it is our duty
to do BO, chiefly because it will relieve
our people from Federal oppression, and
oheok the misrule of tho ?tate Govern?
ment, now emboldened by tho counte?
nance and supposed sympathy of the
General Government. If, however, our
participation in the Presidential canvass
will at all impair our power to wrest tho
State from the plunderers who now con?
trol her destinies, we should carefully
refrain from it. I believe it to bo our
duty to lay aside all party preferences,
and, ss citizons of South Carolina, suck
her rescue from further ruiu and degra?
dation, as a man would fight the fire
around bis own domicil before joining
his ucigbborH to arrest a general fire iu
the woods. If there be any hopo of pre?
sent improvement in the State Govern?
ment, it is to bo expected from u reform
movement within the Republican party.
From indications already observed, I
am not without hopo that such a move?
ment will bo developed, aud that it may
assumo such proportions as that it may
bo made to succeed by judicious co-ope
ratiou on onr part. Should the Repub?
lican Convention happily chanoo to no?
minate persons promisiug au honest ad?
ministration, and having the confidence
of our people, the conquest will be less
difficult of achievement, but in any
event, our assistance, to avail anything,
must bu cautiously, quietly and saga?
If wo avoid any organization of our
people for any political purposo what?
ever-if wo refrain from antagonizing
tho Republicans of this State cn party
questions-if we avoid all irritating col?
lisions with the colored people and pur?
sue a policy of conciliation-we may
seoure such a participation in the affairs
of the State as will arrest her impending
ruin. This coarse, to my mind, offers
the only present prospect of relief. If
this fail, it will little matter what policy
we pursue. I trust in God that our
people will do nothing to hinder the pos?
sibility of any such movement, however
tempted by alluring hopes or just resent?
In tho view of the case which I have
presented, wo should take no part in the
Presidential election. Tho dominant
party would yield nothing to those who
oppose their party nominee for Presi?
dent. Ia yielding this, we in fact yield
nothing but a sentiment. Tho nominee
of the Republican party will get the vote
of South Carolina, whether we oppose
bim or no, and all the more certainly if,
and because we do oppose him.
If wo refrain from taking our fruitless
part in the contest, should the Republi?
cans succeed, we will have avoided giv?
ing any protext to tho incoming adminis?
tration further to oppress and to perse?
cute our people, and oar wiso modera?
tion will have disarmed much of that
prejudice whiah excludes us from parti?
cipation in the public affairs of the State.
Without such participation, it is vain to
hope for any relief. On the other hand,
none of tho benefits to ensae from the
defeat of the Republican nominee for
President can bo averted by the course I
have indica tod. The conservatives, if
successful, must shape their general
policy in accordance with the principles
thoy have announced, and must select
for Federal office honest and competent
men, whatever may be the course pursued
by oar people in tho election. We have,
theroforo, everything to gain and nothing
to lose by non-action.
I do not think we are ia a condition
just now to throw up our hats for any?
body for President, aad consider it un?
wise ia a people, situated as we are, to
delude ourselves into the belief that we
caa mond oar affairs by indulging in any
saoh amusement. Let us have nothing
to do with this political game, until we
can striko with effect. If the Liberal
Rep ubi ioiv ns organizo in this State, let
them do it. If they do not, oertainly
our people could have no reason to organ?
ize for the support of Mr. Greeley, unless
thoy desired to make his defeat iu this
State doubly secare. Tho samo reason?
ing would apply much more conclusively
against the organization of the Demo?
cratic party. In my judgment, wo would
commit a fatal blunder even to send dele?
gates from this State to the Democratic
Convontiou. They would represent a
constituency who could not poesibly
eleot even one elector, and whoso sup?
port would damage tho cause thoy advo?
cate. Rut, while powerless for good,
saoh aotiou would have a capacity for
evil, fatal to aii our hopes of relief within
tho State. Nothing oonoeivable, within
the rango of probabilities, could so da?
mage ns politically, as the revival at this
time of the Domooratio party of this
Oae other point. If Grant be the
nominee of the Republicans, he will
huvo a greater power for good or for evil
to oar unhappy people than any other
person or party. It is, perhaps, hope
leas to conciliate; but, in view of his
possible election, it would be suicidal to
exasperate bim by a vain and fruitless
opposition. This last consideration you
may denounce as unworthy a froo peo?
ple. Rut remember, we aro not a free
people. While it might be dastardly to
suffer our political conduct to be con?
trolled by the fear of porsonal cons??
quences, the welfare of the people is
the noblest motive of the statesman.

Private sincerity ?a public welfare.
Judge Sanford E. Ohnrcti Interviewed*?
He Favors Greeley and Brown.
The opinion of J udge Char ob, favor*
ing the endorsement of the Cincinnati
nominations, is particularly significant,
ns be is the man selected by the World
for the Vice-Presidency on tbe straight
Democratic ticket, which tho World
scorns so anxious to bring into the field.
A correspondent of the World thns re?
The Chief Justice of tho Court of Ap?
peals, Sauford E. Church, arrived iu
Albany last night, with other members
of that court, to organize the court of
impeachment in the case of Judge Bar?
nard. I called upou him at his rooms at
a late hour to obtain, if possible, bis
views in regard to the probabilities, pos?
sibilities and effect of the Democrats
endorsing the nomination of Greeley for
President. The name of Mr. Church
bas been mentioned by strong and influ?
ential parties as tho Democratio candi?
date for Pr?sident, and many have
thought that be would strongly oppose
the endorsement of Mr. Greeley. I
found Mr. Church ready aud willing to
talk on the subject, and in response to
questions pat to him Mr. Chorea said:
I am free to say that when I first re?
ceived the intelligence of the nomination
of Mr. Greoley by the Liberal Republi?
cans at Cincinnati, it struck me as a mis?
take almost equal to destroying the libe?
ral movement, which had sturted off so
auspiciously. I have bad no personal
acquaintance with Mr. Greely, but from
the position which he bas occupied bo
foro tho public, and his life-long antago?
nism to the Democratio party, I could
not for a moment believe that the De?
mocracy could ever be induced to sup?
port him for tho highest office in the
gift of the people, Since then, I have
had leisure and time to reflect upon tbe
subject; have boen home and have taken
some pains to ascertain the feelings of
the people, and to obtain its drift of
public sentiment. To secure tbi?, I have
gone among tho common people and the
mea who are not seeking office, and who
vote from conscientious duty. I never
go to what are called tho political lead?
ers, nor the politicians, nor office-seek?
ers, when I desire to kuow the public
sentiment or drift of opinion, but to the
intelligent mechanic, tho farmer and the
laboriug man. It is there the chango in
public opinion and its drift is first disco?
vered, und eau be ascertained more
correctly than from any other source. I
have taken the trouble to talk with this
class of men, drawing them out without
expressing any views of my ov.n. In all
bhat I have talked with, I have only mot
ono man who Bays he will not vote for
Mr. Greeley. lu many cases, Democra?
tic farmers have said: "It seems queer
for us to go for Mr. Greeley, and at first
it was a bitter pill; bat if it is necessary
to defeat Grant, then we will cheerfully go
for him." Others unhesitatingly declared
iu favor of the Democratio Convention
endorsing Mr. Greeley. It is my opi?
nion that the mass of tho Democrats are
ready to go for Mr. Greeley, and to my
surprise, I found the Irish voters almost
unanimous for him.
Q.--Do you think it policy for tho
Rochester Convention to make an open
declaration in favor of Mr. Greeley?
Mr. Church-At first, I thought the
course of tho World the correct one-to
hold oil any expression of opinion until
the National Convention; that there was
danger of our going too far in that direc?
tion; but I am now of the opinion that
the Rochester Convention Bhould recog?
nize the action at Cincinnati, and speak
of it with all the encouragement possi?
ble, and go as far as we can go without a
square endorsement of the ticket, which
'should be left to the National Conven?
tion, which alone bas the authority to
speak for the entire Democratic party of
The impression left upon my mind
was, that be believed that the endorse?
ment ol the nomination of Mr. Greeley
by tbe Democracy isras fast beocssing
certain, whether the leaders were for it
or not. . .
The United States Supreme Court has
given a decision which is intended to
define the American dootrino as to the
relations of church and Stato. Tbe case
before the court was that of a Presbyte?
rian Church in Louisville, which had be?
come divided through old troubles relat?
ing to slavery and the civil war. After
various proceedings before the estab?
lished tribunals of the church-the
Presbytery, tbe Synod and tho General
Assembly-tho dispute was taken into
the courts; first into the State courts of
Kentucky, and afterward to the United
States Circuit Court; the decisions ia the
Stato courts being all in favor of one
party, and in the United States Court of
tho other. Finally, the case was brought
before tbe Supreme Court of the United
States, which deoided, substantially, that
no court hos power to interfere with the
action of the General Assembly, whioh
is the supreme judicatory of the Presby?
terian Church. Its decisions, whether
right or wrong, must be aocepted aa
final in all oburoh matters, and oivil
tribunals bave not the autbority oven to
inquire whotber, under the constitution,
the oburob, tbe Assembly has jurisdic?
tion over oases brought before it, or
whether its aotion is in conformity to the
rules and precedents of the church.
From this, it would appear that in any
church the decision of the ecoleaiostioal
judicatory wbioh is recognized aa of the
highest autbority, oannot be over-ruled
by any civil oonrt.
