Stell We Send Delegates to Baltimore?
This ia a question which is exciting
discussion among the press and tho lead?
ing citizens of the State. We have ex?
pressed onr views favoring the ?ogative
side of the.question, heretofore. Fur?
ther consideration has only strengthened
our former opinion. When such good
men, and snob wise and experienced
statesmen, as the Hons. W. D. Porterand
B. IP. Perry, nob to mention our honored
contemporaries of the quill,', differ with
as, we are constrained to step cautiously
and consider woll our position. But we
have strong leaders on the negative side,
too. Qen. Kershaw and Judge Aldrich
are trusty men and true, and many of
our ablest County papers oppose the
sending of delegates. Both the general
Damooratio Conventions held sinoe the
war, the tearful re-union at Philadelphia
in 1866, and_ tho big mistake at Now York
in 1868, are now conceded to have had
baneful effeots upon the South .* It had
been better for as in South Carolina bad
we kept away from them. This, though
not a convincing argument, for circum?
stances may and doubtless have greatly
changed the political field, is still a
prima facie inducement against our par?
ticipating in the Baltimore Convention.
In the second place, the Baltimore Con?
vention is a general meeting of the De?
mocratic party. None but members of
the Democratic party surely are entitled
to a voice in the counsels there. We
have no Democratic party in this State,
and we are convinoed that it is not the
wish of the people to revive that defunot
organization in our midst.' ' We have no
ourse for the National Democratic party,
for wo revere its principles and are grate?
ful for the sympathy it has shown to the
Now, if a convention meets under a
call for Democrats, and fiends dclcgatce
to Baltimore, is that not a re-organiza?
tion and revivification of the party in
this State? If it is not, then what righi
will our delegates have to a seat in thc
Democratic Convention? They must bf
Democrats, and representatives of a dui]
organized Democratic meeting; other?
wise, they cannot claim a voice in a pun
Democratic Convention-suoh as the on<
to be held at Baltimore on the 9th o:
July. Furthermore, we well know thai
the great question for the Baltimore
Convention is Greeley or no Greeley
The main, if not the sole, object of part]
conventions ?B to secure unanimity o
act'on . among the members. To thii
end, there is a tacit, implied agreemon
among those who take part in suoh con
sultationsto abide the honest decision o
the .majority. This must bo so, or elsi
there is no need of conventions at all
They ure mere shams. Now, we ar?
already determined upon our conrse
We are all for Greeley-unconditionally
unequivocally, convention or no conven
tion. We are not going to consult, fo
our minds are already made up. I
every delegation to Baltimore exoept ou
own were to vote for a straight Demo
cratio ticket, we could not be influence*
to give it any practical endorsement
We differ from onr sister States of th
South at this time, in that they hav
endorsed tbe Cincinnati platform am
candidates conditionally. They prc pos
to vote for Greeley and Brown, provide,
the general party convention so detei
mine. They prefer Greeley and Brown
and will urge their endorsement, direct]
or indirectly, by the party, but will b
governed by the final determination.
We are prepared to take no snoh altei
native. We mean to have Greeley am
Brown and nobody else. If we som
delegates to Baltimore, they go there t
dictate or advise, certainly not to cor
snit If wo have no Democratic party -
if we do not moan to revive it-if we ar
not going to acquiesce in tho deoision c
the Convention, and work as it shall d
reot-then we have no more business G
Baltimore than Republicans or any othc
outsiders. Suoh seems to be the logioi
conclusion to our mind. We present i
however, with all the deference due i
the high authorities on the other sid?
We know that South Carolina can cai
seven votes in the Convention against
Democratic nomination, and this is vei
desirable to be done. Bat if it canoe
be done with propriety, it shonld not t
done at all. As far as influencing tt
Convention is concerned, surely tho fa
of Sooth Carolina-once the Btrongho!
of Democracy-keeping aloof, when tb
is done from no feeling of anger, spi
or envy, should have greater weight tin
the votes of onr handful of delegates.
PROBABLY A SLANDER.-A special d
spatch to a Cincinnati paper, charg
Andrew Jaokson with having accoi
plished the ruin of the postm.istoi
wife at Greenville, and driving her
commiasion of suicido. This in donl
loss an invention of tho enemy.
Aa soma apprehoDsiou prevails in re?
ference to the call issued by the Central
Executive Committee, we beg to make a
statement tonohing tbe authority under
which we aoted. The committee, of
which wo are members, was appointed
by the Stato Demooratio Convention,
which met here August 7, 1868, and,
like tho National Democratic Committee,
of course, continues in existence until
superseded by a new appointment, or is
abrogated by the same authority which
As it is tho only organization in the
State which could properly tuko any
action in reference to tho call made by
the National Demooratio Committee, for
the assemblage of a National Conven?
tion, we thought that courtesy to the
National Committee, as well as duty to
tho people, required some steps on our
part. Acting upon these views, aud in
accordance with a request that we should
do so, we suggested the propriety of out
people meeting in convention, in order
that they might consult or take snob
action as seemed best to them.
In view of the grave questions which
will come before the Convention that ii
to meet here, we deem it of great impor?
tance that all parts of the State shonld
be folly and ably represented, and wc
venture to express the hope that everj
County will send a full delegation.
The National Democratic Oonventior
will be forced either to place its owe
candidates in the field, or to give iti
support, open or implied, to those of th?
Cincinnati Convention. The South pre
fers almost unanimously the latter alter
-native; and if we wish to make our sap
port of the Liberal movement of ain
avail, we should ase every l?gitim?t*
means in our power to Becure the cn
dorsemenb of tho nominees of the Libe
ral Republican party.
Whether it is the best policy for thi
National Convention to moet or not, ii
no longer an open question. It hai
been called together. AU the otbe
Southern States have responded to tin
call; and as it is of the last conBequenc
that the whole power of tho South ehouli
be exerted there to protect the interest
of our people, we are decided in ou
opinion that our Stato should be als>
represented. But, of course, this is :
matter that belongs exclusively to th
Convention, and we only express ou
own individual convictions, beiug en
tiroly satisfied to leave tho whole eubjoc
to be determined by the proper anthon

THE PBKSS ON GREELEY'S LETTER. -
The pr JHS pretty generally pronounce
Mr. Greeley's letter, accepting tho Lib
ral nomination, an ablo and vigorot
paper, some of the opposition eve
styling it courageous, while a sing
journal, tho New York Post, merely r
gards it as "cunning." From this poii
the line of comment divides. The A?
ministration papers say that the lif'" '
been taken out of it by the acion i
Congress in passing what they call tl
amnesty Act, a partial and henoe u
gracious measure at this late day. Tin
also speak of it as a bid for Democrat
support. A straight-out Democrat
paper says that in it Mr. Greeley d
parts from his life-long principles,
that paper understands thom. Oi
free-trade paper speaks of Mr. G reel?
"as willing to hide bis protectionist pi
olivities under a mass of words." B
however adverse the line of criticism,
howover inimical to Mr. Greeley may 1
the critic, not one undertakes to pi
noonoo the letter anything short of
first class document in point of tone
well as method. Those who speak i
Sontbern sentiment, point out that in

COLUMBIA, S. O., May 25, 1872.
Gen. John B. Dennis-Sm: I am com?
pelled by a decent sense of self-respeot
to notice the imputation cast npon me
in your lotter, published in the Union ot
this date. The paragraph to which I re?
fer is aB follows:
"Tho S tato Lunatic Any I DUI is strag?
gling along from hand to mouth, not
knowing from day to day what they will
do on the morrow, although one of our
Stato officers and one of oar County
Treasurers have generously offered, io

stitutions perpetuated, to buy the war?
rants of tho Comptroller-General upon
the appropriation nando by the Legisla?
ture for its support, and pay for them
tho sum of fifty cents on the dollar.
Was ever such magnanimity known in
oiBcerB bofore? Dr. Euaor repeatedly
informed the Legislature that the insti?
tution could not be muintniued for a loss
sum than that appropriated, viz: S?O.?UO;
and now must ho be compelled to sell
the regular warrant of the Comptroller
upon that fund for fifty cents on the
As I am known to bo the County Trea?
surer to whom you refer, I hereby pro?
nounce your statement a bnso and mali?
cious falsehood, and in proof of this de?
claration, I present to the public the
facts in the premises.
The Stute Treasurer having informed
tho Superintendent of the Luuutio Asy?
lum tout thero were no funds in the
Treasury to meot the warrants drawn on
the appropriation for that institution, it
became necessary either to obtain money
on private credit to maintain it, or turn
out its unfortunate inmates upon the
community, without food or shelter. Io
this emergency, Dr. Ensor, tho Superin?
tendent, sought to raise the funds ne?
cessary to support the Asylum until suf?
ficient taxes are collected, by hypothe?
cating the warrants drawn on thu Trea?
surer by tho Comptroller-General, lu
this be very naturally failed.
At this juncture, and to prevent a re?
sult abhorrent to tho civilization of thc
age, Gov. Scott offered to endorse the
notes of tho Superintendent for the
amounts required; warrants of the
Comptroller-General being deposited by
the Superintendent in tho Carolina Na?
tional Bank, of this city, as collaterals in
tho transaction, aud I agreeiug, by au?
thority of the Stato Treasurer, to liqui?
date these notes out of thu first money
paid into tho County Troasary for Stute
taxes, taking up tho warrants and turn?
ing them into thc State Treasury as cash
to the extent of tho amount of money
advanced upon tho same, with accrued
interest. This is a plain statement of
the facts, that aro all well knowu to
several of the banks in Columbia. Tho
warrants of the Comptroller-General
were not Bold, nor did I or any oue elie,
to my knowledge, offer to buy thom, as
you bave falsely alleged. Messrs. Agnew
Sc Sou, of this city, ono of tho most reli?
able and solid business bouses ia the
State, a-o now supplying the Asylum
with provisions under the arrangement
effected. They felt constrained, as pru?
dent merchants, to refuse to furnish any
supplies iv ,a tho faith of any number
of war* J drawn upon the State Troa
sur ." declared themselves ready to
j the oredit asked, on tho personal
endorsement of Gov. Scott, which bas
been given, as abovo stated. That en?
dorsement is tho chief guaranty of pay?
ment in tho promises, as the warrants
have no determinable value in the money
market, and will Lave none while such
as you are remain in tho General Assem?
bly, and oontinue to grow ricbor as the
State grows poorer. I have neither
profit nor advantage in the negotiation
referred to, nor can Gov. Scott possibly
derive any pecuniary benefit from it,
while his risk is certain.
If sufficient money to satisfy the notes
comos into the Treasury, I will pay it
over as agreed. If they are not paid
from taxes within tho time stipulated,
the warranta hypothecated at fifty cants
on the dollar may be sold for what they
will bring in tho market, and Gov. Scott
will be iiablo for the deficit; while, on
the other band, any excess remaining
after satisfying the notes, must bo paid
over to tho Superintendent of the Asy?
I will not remark upon the gushing
honesty that you display iu your ref jual
to unite in the proposed call foran extra
session of the Legislature. In this you
praotioo a very safe und ohoap patriot?
ism, for you have delayed your protest
until the sohemo was notoriously dead
and buried, beyond the hope of resur?
rection. Your professions of sympathy
for the people, in view of the public
schools being closed, and the Statt in?
stitutions having but a precarious Sup?
port, through private credit, will b re?
garded by all good oitizons, who 1 DOW
the real oause of this lamentable cc ndi
tion of affairs, as only adding insu t to
injury. The people, sir, can no lofcger
be deceived in these matters. As they
look upon your sudden display of wealth
and splendid equipages, and remember
your reoent petition in bankruptcy, they
will welcome your professions iu favor
of honesty and eoonomy in the State
Government, if they accept your pre?
tended* co-operation ut all, on tho known
principle that "the hair of the dog is
good for the bi to."
