COLUMBIA. S. C.
Sunday morning* June 2,1872.
Have We O. Democratic Party la South
We stated, in a previous article op?
posing the sending of delegates from
this State to the general Democratic
Convention at Baltimore, that there was
no Demooratio party in this State, and
we did not propose to have one. The
Ohsrleston News thinks this a "bold
begging of the question," and proceeds
to show, after its fashion, that wo have
got a Demooratio party, or ought to have
one, because we had one some time ago.
If people never changed their opinions,
or if we had no indications of an altera?
tion in the sentiments of the people of
South Carolina, the argument of the
Nexos would be very strong. But it does
happen that people do change their
opinions, which we hope the News will
admit, and not' accuse us here, too, of
begging the question; and it does further
happen, if any faith can be put in the
presa of the State and in tho letters of
bur most influential citizens, that the
strongest indications are given of a gen?
eral disinclination to revive the Demo?
oratio party in this State, or entrust our
further fortunen to its impotent handr.
The News need go no further than its
own County Convention, which it does
not itself know whether to call Demo?
oratio or Conservative, and finally ends
by calling it both, to have proof of our
"bold assertion." In the proceedings of
that convention, published in the same
issue of the News in which ita editor
pitches into na for what he ia pleased to
term our "bold begging of the question,"
we find the very President himself ear?
nestly disclaiming against any connec?
tion with the Demooratio party, whioh
he considered aa dead and buried some
time ago. The remarks of thia gentle?
man. Mr. Kinloch, are reported in the
News aa being received with applause.
Mr. MoOrady was of the same opinion,
and openly declared himself no Demo?
crat. Mr. Steadman says, "We do not
meet here aa Demoorats." ' There was no
dissenting voioe reported, and Mr. Boag
declared without being contradicted, that
there was but one proclaimed Democrat
in the meeting-a Mr. Alley. Now if, as
we suppose, thia Mr. Alley is Mr. Jack
Alley, the well-known undertaker, we
warn our contemporary that the faithful
allegiance of snob an one is very ominous
at this time. Mr. Alley, doubtless, has
a keen eye to business, and being de?
sirous to bo in at the burial, it is surely
only by way of euphemism that, like bis
illustrious prototype, Mr. Omer, he is
persuaded to speak of the def unot body
as "the party."
The News says the assembling in con?
vention will prove whether or not there
is a Demooratio party in the State. We
submit to our contemporary, that if bis
primary meeting in Charleston can be
regarded aa a criterion of those in other
parts' of the State, that there will be but
a slim Demooratio gathering at the capi?
ta!. They who respond to the call of a
Demooratio Exeoutive Committee should
be Demoorats, wa admit, but they will
not be in this instance; and for proof,
we point our contemporary to his own
County Convention, and bid him pondei
upon it and grow wise. There is evi?
dently no Demooratio party in Charles?
ton. Even our rash contemporary will
scarcely nndertake to "go it alone" on
Mr. Alley, who, though, doubtless, e
very excellent man, is too singular to
form a party, aooording to any ordinary
acceptation of the term. In its zeal tc
maintain the existence of the Demoora?
tio party, the News evinoea a conscious?
ness of the inconsistency of our taking
part in the Baltimore Convention, ex?
cept aa Democrats. We are glad to sec
this, and hope the News will impress the
idea upon the Convention, so that there
may be a clear understanding of the cha?
racter in whioh we propose to demand a
hearing in Demooratio oounoils. Il
there ia a Demooratio party in the State,
and it ia proposed to oontinue the orga?
nisation, and to direct ita efforts aa the
national party shall determine to be best,
then, of course, they have the unques?
tionable right to meet their brother De?
m?crata at Baltimore, and oast tho vote
of the State. But if there ia no Demo
oratio party, nor desire for any-no in
tention longer to link onr destinies tc
ita tottering fortunes-so willingness tc
abide the determination of a majority o
the party, bot, instead, a fixed resolv?
todo aa we think best, and to vote fo:
those who are not Demoorats-then w<
have sorely no more right to a seat ii
the Baltimore Convention than an;
The Newa Bays there is a Demoorati
party in the State; the Charleston Conn
ty Convention very emphatically sa;
there ia not any respectable portion of i
in that aeotion. We will wait and sei
what the other Counties Bay, and finall;
what the convention itself shall declare
We hope oar contemporary will see to it
that the convention is ezplioit on this
point, (or npon it, aa the News nega?
tively admits, depends the propriety of
oar sending delegates to Baltimore. If
the members of the convention will de?
clare that they are Demoorats, and mean
to continuo in that faith, we shall have
nothing more to say to them npon their
right to participate in a Democratic Na?
tional Gonvention. We shall only ex
peot of them that they be consistent, and
when onoe they have deolared themselves
Democrat, that they will abide the deoi
sion of their party, honestly expressed,
whatever it may be, and will UBO all their
endeavors to seoare the success of what?
ever tioket their party may place in the

G nuns VILLE, 8. G., May 31, 1872.
FBIEHD SELBY: I have to reoord one
of those lamentable occurrences, incident
to the season, which took place between
5 and G o'olook, yesterday evening, at
Johnston's mill-pond, on Brushy Greek,
Anderson County, nine miles from
Greenville. It appears that fonr yoong
white boy s, name and age respectively as
follows: Wm. J. Ellison, aged twelve
years; A. J. Ellison, ten; Lee Couch,
eight; Willie Couch, eight; when re?
turning from school they stripped and
went into the pond to wash, or bathe
no one else knew anything of it-after
which a negro man, by ohanoe, happened
to pass by the pond and saw on the bank
some boys' clothing. Not seeing the
boys, he feared the worst, and went
promptly to the honse of Mr. Johnston
and reported the fact. Measures were
immediately taken, the pond was
drained, and the bodies of the unfortu?
nate youths were found together, looked
in the embraces of death. It is sap
posed, perhaps, that one or more of the
unfortunates hod got beyond his depth
and in the efforts of the others to save
him, they were involved in one common
min. The two Ellisons were brothers
and sons of a blind father, and were just
beginning to be of some assistance to the
parent, whioh makes the misfortune
greater. The two Conch boys were
coonina. The sad calamity hos cast
gloom among the families of their
parents and relatives, who are among the
most respectable families of their seotion.
Politically, Greeley stook is activo and
buoyant, with an advancing tendency

To THE EDITOR OF THE PHONIY: In
the proceedings of the Gity Council, pub?
lished in your paper of to-day, is a com?
munication from certain citizens to the
Mayor, in reference to the fetid odorB
arising from the cometary, and in part
denying that such ie the case. The
mere denial does not remove the charge
that saoh exists, and whioh was made to
his Honor by the writer, in his communi?
cation of the 221 nit. It is a well
known foot, that the denizens of the
Five Points of New York oity, are total?
ly oblivious to the offensive odors that
are constantly arising from their midst.
In their case the sense of smell has be?
come BO blunted, from long aontaot with
decaying matter, that they are nuable to
distinguish smells, and saoh is always
the case amongst a people who live
amidst filth and dirt. The resident near
to gas houses and bone-boiling establish?
ments never appear to distinguish the
offensive Btenones from these manufac?
tories. It is only those who live some
little distance off, or the stranger who
comes into their midet. The men who
work amongst slaughter-hoases are ex?
amples of the same kind. The gratui?
tous remark that the parties who are
spreading this report must surely be
laboring under a mistake, or else willfully
misrepresent mailers, ill becomes a body
of men who are supposed to have the in?
terests of the oity at heart. I again re?
peat, that there bas been offensive odors
in my neighborhood, and my belief is
that they arise from the cemetery. Very
respectfully, JOHN McQUEEN.
COLUMBIA, S. G.. June 1, 1872.
The Charleston News, referring to the
departure of the Republican delegates
to the Philadelphia Convention, says:
"The delegates are mostly in favor of
the renomination of Grant for President,
and speak of potting np Senator Wilson
for Vice-Pr?sident. They boast that
they are about to pot a plank in the
Radical platform whioh will sweep the
Sooth to a man for Grant."
TURNING BLACK TO WHITE.-A "sci?
entist" has at last solved the ancient co?
nundrum, *'Can an Ethiopian change
his skin?" This is the way he proposes
to do it: The candidate will be first sub?
jected to a bath of alkaline water. Hav?
ing been well cleansed, he is placed in a
room where a reliable thermometer indi?
cates 120 degrees of Fahrenheit. After
fifteen minutes' baking, the partially
cooked viotim is oondnoted to a bath of
ohlorine water, at the ordinary tempera
tare. The heat has opened all the pores,
so that the ohlorine flows in and reaohes
the ooloring matter. To keep it in, the
pores must be closed. To dose the pores,
the subject most be introduced into an
ioe cellar, where he spends ten minutes
in absolute agony, but relative bliss, for
the next step is to drop bis exhausted
form into Water heated to 180 degree?.
In this the pores open, the ohlorine
grapples the coloring matter and departs
with it, and oar colored brother is co?
lored no more.
A Word to Democrat*.
We have no doubt a large majority of
Demoorats favor the endorsement of
Greeley and Brown at Baltimore. The
nomination of Mr. Greeley by the Oin
oinnati Convention took the Democracy,
SB it did everybody else, by surprise, but
it turns out to have been tue most popu?
lar that oould have been made. It was a
fortunate accident, or, looking at it from
an orthodox Btand-point, it seems te have
been a special interposition of Provi?
dence-an interposition for the salvation
of the country.
While it is almost, if not quite, certain
that our convention will endorse the
Liberal candidates, and reoommend
them to thu cordial support of Demo?
crats throughout the nation, we regret
to observe there are here and there De?
moorats bitterly opposed to Greeley,
who insist that a straight tiokot shall be
put into the field. Even some Demo?
oratio newspapers are strenuously urging
that course. As it is manifestly of the
greatest consequence to the friends of
Gen. Grant that such a course shall be
pursued, it may possibly bo true, as has
been oharged, that in some instances the
oondnot of politicians and papen is at?
tributable to improper influences, but in
the great majority of such cases we are
satisfied it is only the judgment that ie
in fault. The Democrat who oppos?e
the polioy of concurring in the action ol
the Ginoinnati Gonvention, is very likely
to get right between now and the time
for the assembling of the Baltimore
Convention. Such Democrats, we have
reason to hope, will, ezoept perhaps in
rare and exceptional oases, become con?
vinced of the error into whioh they have
fallen. It must be so, when the interest
of the party and the country, and mo?
especially of the South, ooma to bi
calmly and deliberately considered.
Nearly all the opposition comes fro nc
the North, for there ia little difference
of opinion among Southern Demoorats,
We do not pretend to say Mr. Yoorheee
and those who have taken position witt
him are not Demoorats. We do know
that their course is, to say the least, ox
oeedingly injudicious, but not until w<
see what aotion they take on the 9th o
July and thereafter, can we render om
verdict with justice. If they acquiesce
with a good graoe in what is done, al
will be well; if not, they eau no longe;
lay claim to the character or the name o
Muoh will depend on the unanimity
and harmony of the proceedings at Haiti
more. If those proceedings go off a
they onght to do, General Grant's defea
may be looked on as a settled thing. I
ia almost certain that in the event o
Greeley's nomination an effort will b
made to get up a bolt. The faot is note
rious that a number of Radical emit
sarie3 were at the Cincinnati Convention
and it can hardly bo doubted that th
power of the Administration is suffioien
to secure some representation at Balti
more. We may ex peet that a few wolve
in sheep's clothing will be there. Sc
nator Chandler not long ago declare
that he would willingly contribut
$25,000 out of his own pocket towards
straight nomination; and Presider
Grant, possessing even a deeper in tores
and having free access to the publi
purse, will not scruple to avail him
self of overy means of influencing soc
a result, or something as near it as poi
The relianco for organizing a suoceBi
fol bolt, in the event of Greeley's norn
nation at Baltimore, is mainly on men
bera of the party from the Norther
States, for the Radical leaders oompn
bend thoroughly that the insane oom
eels of such Southern men as Stephei
and Forsyth are estimated by the Sontl
ern Democracy precisely at what the
are worth. We cannot and do not b
Iieve that our Northern friends will gil
tho aid and oomfort to the Radica
which they hope for, for we are pe
suaded that the great majority of Nortl
ern Demoorats comprehend the situi
tion. AU who are worthy of the nan
desire that snoh action shall be taken i
will redound to the welfare of the pari
and the country.
We ask Northern Democrats who o]
pose Mr. Greeley to divest themselves i
prejudice and dispassionately oousidi
the case. The unanimity of tho Soutl
ern people should go for something wil
them. The absolute necessity of pr
venting Gen. Grant'a re-eleotion, at
the continued domination of the Bad
cal party, have been brought home
the people of the South. Greeley pr
8ents the opportunity, and they are pr
foundly anxious that the opportun!
shall not be negleoted. It is a matter
life and death to the South. Mr. Gre
ley, as the representative of the conser
ative and sound principles enunciated
the resolutions of the Cincinnati Co
vention, and his letter aooapting the n
mination, promises relief to them fro
all their woes, and in their behalf \
ask that none of our Northern frien
will assist in depriving them of suoh i
The tariff question is unquestionab
one of interest, and nuder ordinary o
oumstaaoos would out an importa
figure in the Presidential campaign. (
that question the Demooraoy of t
South are in unison with the free tra
men in the Northern States; but thc
are other issues of so muoh greater ni
ment, that, in their estimation, the tai
sinks into insignificance. Mr, Greek
although differing from Demoorats
his ideas of proteotion, is so profounc
impressed, aa the Southern Democra
aro, with the greater importance of t
other questions, that he proposes
throw it out of the canvass altogetb
He proposes, in view of the far mt
pressing necessity of putting an end
the carpet-bag system at the South, a
of the restoration of constitutional f
vernment to all sections, to waive t
tariff issue altogether. Surely Den
orats ought not to hesitate.g?D is not
bo believed that those who have been
lavish in professions of sympathy i
now willing, when a prospect of reliei
presented, to sacrifice the Southern p
pie, and tbat, too, without the remotest
chance of advantage to themselves.
The other objections made to Mr.
Greeley are equally without weight. His
antecedents are as nothing oompared
with the necessity of establishing in the
administration of national affairs the
principles he represents. No one can
labor under the inconceivable delusion
that a strict adberenoe to party tradi?
tions and prejudices, though inevitably
loading to defeat, is preferable to the
Sructical ascendancy of fundamental
The Democratic party, through all the
evil times in which we have been living
of late years, bas steadily insisted on a
return to constitutional government.
To this Mr. Greeley is pledged. This in
the broadest plank in bis platform.
Since such is the case, what, then, mat?
ters it what im position has been on past
and exploded inanes? Greeley's election
would settle the very corner-stone of
Democracy firmly in its place.
Greeley or Grant will be the next Pre?
sident of the United States. Tho selec?
tion between them undoubtedly involves
freedom or slavery at the South. And
we warn the people of the Northern
States that the eame despotic and cen?
tralizing policy nuder which the South
suffers will, in the end, if carried out
unchecked to its legitimate conclusion,
inevitably come home to them, also.
Be-eleuo Grant, and the suspension of
the writ of habeas corpus, military rule
and usurpation throughout the country
will be merely a question of time. If
Radical policy had brought a thousand th
part of the ruin and desolation to the
North that it has entailed on the South,
the country would be unanimous for a
cuu?ge of rolers. As it is, we cannot
permit ourselves to doubt that the Demo?
cratic party will do its doty by the
Sooth, by the coontry, and by the cause
of constitutional government.

AVOIOB FROM RADICALISM.-We have
urged that the South has lees to fear
from Horace Greeley than from Grant.
Opposed to our opinions are a few De?
mocratic journals, who say there is no
choice between the two for the South.
Certain it is, that what the Radicals fear
most, and strive hardest against, is the
success of the men and the measures
that look to lifting the yoke from our
necks, and the insuring a Democratic
triumph. The New York Times-Radi?
cal to the core-publishes the proceed?
ings of a "crowded meeting" of tbe
Seventeenth Assembly District Republi?
can Association, on the 23d in6t. Now
read what the said crowded meeting re?
solves Mr. Greeley to be:
"Whereas, The Cincinnati Convention
having nominated as their standard

Davis; and whereas, tho loyal people of

"Resolved, By the Republican Associa?
tion of the Seventeenth Assembly Dis?
trict of New York, that we have entire
faith in the integrity and wisdom of our
Chief Executive, Gen. U. S. Grant, and

honor the noble hero who carried onr
flag from victory to victory and saved

that we intend to fight it ont on this line
for four years more, and that the Re?
publican party of this district have no
affiliation with trading politicians, and
those who desire to compromise with
the armed foes of our country.
"Resolved, That we believe that the
nomination of Horace Greeley was made
in the interest of the Democratic party,
and as we are for reform, we do not pro?
pose to assist in any way Tammany Hall
thieves or their friends.

able to do so with the nation.

Col. Joel W. Mason, are prood to know
that he will represent thia district at the

Who offers the most to the Sooth, the
cominee of the Liberal platform of the

by tho Radicals to be elected in onr in?

Grant, whose supporters breathe forth
saoh enmity as is expressed above
against the Sooth?
MURDEROUS ASSAULT.-On Wednes?
day, at the plantation on John's Island
leased and cultivated by Mr. G. J. Aa

one of the colored employees on another.

the enforcement bill were defeated. No
