Another Party In the Field.
The ultra Free Traders, or Revenue
Reformers, who were at first associated
with the Liberal movement, appear dis?
satisfied with the sensible disposition
which the Cincinnati Convention made
of their darling idea of revenue reform,
and liavo held a meeting ia Now York,
looking to tho organization of a purely
froe trade party. William Cullen Bry?
ant and David A. Wells may bo regarded
as tho master spirits of tho movement,
and lend to it the influence of their in?
dividual ability, earnestness nnd stain?
less integrity. We should be happy to
Bee a squaro issuo madeboforo tho coun?
try upon the question of freedom of ex?
change, as opposed to the present tariff
system, by misnomer dubbed protection.
We believe that it will bo made at a not
distant future, and are inclined to view
the present demonstration as indicative
of the origin of a new party, and one
which is destined in a short period to
suppl im t all other political organization/'.
The South and West are at one in their
opposition to the present absurd and
ruinous system of tariff, and there is no
small portion of the North, too, which
joins in the opposition. The advocates
of free trade are an questionably far
ahead in numbers of the monopolists,
and will evince when the opportunity
offers. Bnt we regret to Bee the ques?
tion raised in the present Presidential
canvass, for the 'simple reason thnt we
believe its effeot will only be to strengthen
the chancos of Grant's reelootion, and
the continued supremacy of tho extreme
Radical faction of the Republican party,
whioh, among its other and greater sins,
is the most bitter opponent of free trade.
In our judgment, theOinoinnati Con?
vention, in leaving the question of re?
venue reform entirely to Congress, to
which it must be finally entrusted any
way, adopted the wisest aourse that
oonld possibly bo suggested, under exist?
ing circumstances. There are other, if
not more important, at least moro press?
ing demands, npon the care and atten?
tion of the people in the present emer?
gency, than the matter of revenue re?
When the very bulwarks of civil
liberty are in imminent peril of being
destroyed by the ruffian hand of a military

of sovereign States are being pers?cut?e
by the minions of a central Government,
while being plundered by its tools at

gance characterize every operation ol

portant, affects only our material pros

John W. Forney grows gloriously
merry over the fact that the State o
Calhoun, Preston and Legare will b<
represented in the National Republioai
Convention by their former Africai
slaves. We can see little in such a con
BU m mat ion for any Republican who love,
his country and respects himself to re
joice oyer. It is glorying in one's owi
shame. But how wonld Mr. Forne;
like to see the great State of Pennsylva
nia represented by the same class of peo
pie? Wonld he be merry or sad ove
that? This is the proper test, and w
hope he will answer tho question.
Tho South must present a united nm
determined front at Baltimore. Sh
will meet there a strong minority froc
the North who will demand a "strnigb

done at the Charleston Democratic Con

Judge Willara for Governor. -
Martin B. Delaney, ohairman of some
Republican committee, society or organi?
zation of some character in Charleston,
his addressed a communication to Judge
Willard, inquiring whether he would ao
oept the nomination for Governor of the
State, upon a certain platform which De?
laney dets forth. Judge Willard replies,
signifying his readinoss to accept the no
minatiun and to act up td the conditions
required. These oro honesty and econo?
my in the Administration, a homestead
for the landless, to bo sold thom by tho
State at a reasonable price, and at long
time, perfection of tho freo school sys?
tem, and an equal distribution of the
offices between whites and blacks. There
are other Republicans, and of that party
of course oar next Governor must be,
whom we would prefer to see in tho gu?
bernatorial chair. But we would not
wring our hands in despair if we should
see Judge Willard, with a complement of
other officers as good as himself, take tho
places of B. K. Scott and his present
Judge Willard is a man of strong an ti
Southorn prejudices, and a groat stick?
ler for what ho conceives to be the bet?
ter way of his folks "to ham." He is
thought to be honest, however; is not
considered to have had any hand in the
rascalities of the ring; is a man of no in?
considerable ability; is dignified in his
deportment and deocnt in his associa?
tions. Upon tho whole, we think tho
Jodge would do pretty well, and the
State would not make a bad bargain to
trade Scott off for him. We havo greatly
feared that Scott would be succeeded by
some member of the same ring; that
there might be a shifting of segment?,
bot tho same old ring would remain in
power. We are, therefore, pleused to
see Judge Willard's name suggested. It
ia indicative of an effort for reform in
the Bepublican ranks, and may induce
tho other side, if there bo another side,
to pat forward even a more acceptable
man than Judge Willard. Who knows?
As to the platform, we seo nothing in it
to object to, except that we think the
homestead' scheme impracticable and
Tho homesteads are to bo provided, so
Delaney says, without an increase of
taxation., We hope this does not mean
that Delaney and his party are satisfied
with the present rate of taxation, and in?
tend to give ns no reduction. $5,000,000
annually taken from an impoverished
and straggling people, is too heavy a
bardon to be borne, when it is well
known that $800,000 would be amply
sufficient to defray all reasonable ex?
penses, including a liberal allowance for
the free school fund. If the State had
unoccupied lands to dispose of, it would
be very proper to divide it oat among
poor men; bat there is bound to be
some heavy swindling done whon the
State undertakes to bay land and sell it
again. Land is sold every sales-day at
the varions County seats in the State for
from twenty-five cents to two dollars per
acre, and good land at that. Almost any
poor man, who is not a lazy, good-for
naught, oan supply himself at these
sales with as much land as ho desires.
Many negroes have already bought land
in this way-moro by far than have ob?
tained homesteads under tho operations
of the infamous Land Commission.

CORRECTION.-Mr. H. Noah, Gov.
Scott's private secretary, has published
the following correction of a card re?
cently published in the New York Post:
In your issao of the 27th ultimo, you
publish, for the general information of
the pablio, a letter from this office to
Messrs. Webb and Haestis, of yoar city,
in relation to the prospoots for the re?
newal of interest payments on tho bond?
ed debt of this State. I hand you
herewith a oopy of that letter, from
which you will see that the month stated
when the likelihood of payments would
be made is January, 1873, instead of
July, 1873. This is either a typographi?
cal error, or Messrs. Webb and lluostis
have wilfully perverted tho letter to their
own special purposes.
The taxes are not collected in this
State nntil November, 1872, and there?
fore no payments oan be expeoted to be
made for interest before the month of
January following. The Legislature
made no provision for the payment of
the July interest. Letters ol the same
import and bearing as that addressed to
Messrs. Webb and Huestis have been
sent to C. B. Raymond, P. O. box 2,254,
A P. Oonklin, Esq., 238 Bowery, and
many others in your city.
A TERRIOLE ARRAIGNMENT OF THE AD
MINISTHATION.-Senators Sumner and
Sohnrz threw well-charged bomb-shells
right into the Grant camp on Friday,
and they exploded with terrible effeot.
It has been the intention of tho Admi?
nistration Senators all along to prevent,
if posBiblo, any debate on the report of
tho investigation of tho salo of arms to
tho French Government during the
French-Gorman war. The majority of
tho committee had made up what Mr.
Sumner appropriately termed their
"whitewashing report." They had cast
tho most serions imputations ou thc
character of tho Senators at whoso in?
st un ea the investigation took place, and
proposed that their report should go
forth ns a aampaigu document without a
reply from tho other sido. But Mr.
Sumner and Mr. Schurz were determined
to be heard. Tho mujority of the Senate
having refused to set npurt an evening
for the discussion of the committee's
report, Mr. Sumner availed himself of a
parliamentary privilege, and moved to
post pone iudefiuitely the pending appro?
priation bill, and upon that motton
made bis great speech. Tho correspond?
ent of the Baltimore Sun writes:
Tho political sensation at tho capitol
to-day has boen an unexpected and yet
most elaborate speech from Mr. Sumner
in arraignment of President (inuit und his
administration. He got tho floor iu the
Sonate by a parliamentary manouvre,
whioh quito surprised tho administration
Senutors, and bold it for four hours iu
an exhaustive and carefully-prepared
speech, which soon attracted well-rilled
galleries and crowded the Sonate floor
with cager privileged lisieuers. lu the
last hour, nearly nil of thc members of
the House wero present. It is declnred
by the older ?Senators that there has
never been a speech in Congress, even
when the warfare was made on Andrew
Johnson, thut equaled this fur an indict?
ment of the personal, as well ns the
political, record of a President. Not
one single priviteor publio act of Pro
aident Grant's civil lifo appeared to have
escaped the Senator's notice, for he held
it up to view iu a broad glare of in?
vective and censure, and added to the
matter of thu speech au earnest and
vigorous forco of delivery. He arraigned
him ns a gift-taker, a nepotist and a
failure; declared that he spent his time
with fast horses, in palace cars autl
loitering nt tho sea-side. Tho public
ucts of his administration were as tear?
fully assailed. He maintained that bis
government was a personal one; that it
commanded no respect at home or
abroad; that it bad dono uothiug to com?
mend it to the country; that its r?duc?
tion of tho public debt did not deserve
as much credit as that of Andrew John
son; that it was falso to the colored peo?
ple, sud a failure, so fur ns it had any?
thing to do with reconstruction; while
its foreign policy, of which it liad at?
tempted to boast, was the most disgrace?
ful muddle of tho age. This merely in?
dicates the general tenor of his remarks.
Tho frieuds of the President on the floor,
who were even characterized among
other "rings" ns the "Senatorial ring,"
gave the speech closo attention, us is
not their wont usually when Mr. Sumner
speaks, and took notes for a reply.
When ho had concluded, Mr. Schurz
obtuiucd the floor, but it was now late,
and the Missouri Senutor did not wish to
proceed without rest aud refreshment.
Mr. Sumner, Mr. Trumbull, Mr. Bayard
und other geutlemou appealed for a re?
cess, or an adjournment; but the Admi?
nistration Senators, under the lead of
Morton and Coukliug, would not at first
accord this courtesy, whioh had never
before been refused. After much effort,
however, the Senate, at 6 o'clock, agreed
to a recess until 8 o'clock.
At the latter hour, the galleries were
again crowded to their utmost capacity,
and even the passages and doorway*
were thronged with anxious spectators.
Mr. Schurz madu a two hours' speech,
full of force and power, and gave the
fiuifahiug touches to the blows winch Mr.
Sumner .so effectively dealt the Adminis?
tration iu tho afternoon.
TUE HENDRICKS KIDNAPPING CASE.-It
appears from the Atlant i exchanges that
a persistent effort is being made to shield
Deputy Marshal H. W. Hendricks from
tho consequences of his alleged forgery,
in altering a bench warrant i ss nod fi om
the Uuited States District Court of this
Stato aud arresting an innocent citizen
of Georgia, by obtaining tho interven?
tion of tho Uuited States District Court
iu Georgia. A writ of habeas corpus
haviug been gruuted by that court, as al?
ready reported, tho argument upon its
return was begun last Wednesday, aud
gave promise of being loug and tedious.
The relator, Hendricks, is represented
by Uuited States District Attorney Far?
row aud General Gartrell, who h..ve sub?
mitted an elaborate aud extremely inge?
nious brief in delenco of their client, in
whioh the principal points are, that the
United States Court bas exclusive juris?
diction in the aase; that there is no
State law agi.inst counterfeiting or alter?
ing a bench warrant issued by the Uuited
States Court; that there is no evidence
that the relator altered the process in
this case, hut it is provon that the names
of Hancock and Spears, inserted therein,
are not in his hand-writing, and that he
was not present when they were inserted;
and the evidence shows conclusively
that relator knew nothing of snob inser?
tion, nor did he have anything to do
with it whatever. The other side is rep?
resented by equally able counsel, includ?
ing* Major Spencer and Colonel Ham?
mond, and private letters from Atlanta
say that it is not probable that Hen?
dricks will bo allowed to escape from the
clutches of the law by means of a mere

Mu. EDITOR: One of the worst stab i
that could be given to the Liberal Re?
publican party, would bo tho endorse?
ment of its candidates by a formul Demo?
cratic nomination t Baltimore. Those
who advise the sending of delegates
from South Carolina certainly have not
considered what a vast advantage they
aro giving tho extremo Radicals, by
enabling them to drive off the colored
population from Greeley, by the obvious
expedient of. pointing th< m to tho flag
of tho Democracy, unfurled in his Rup
port. Thia would bo enough to throw
30,000 mnjoritfcof tho votes in South
Carolina against him.
No ono questions tho honest inten?
tions of those who advise this measure;
but it may bo fatal, nevertheless, to tho
rising hopes of un oppressed and ruined
people. It is timo to luok for "skillful
uiaungemont" in political movements,
us well ns for good intentions. Hereto?
fore tho peoplo of the South havo not
hud this udvautago, nui they have suf?
fered unheard-of cruelties thereby.
They have a right now to demand u
chungo iu tho policy of their advisers.
They never will forget what they have
suffered already, and they cannot afford
to Buffer any more, even from honest
mistakes of judgment. Tho bloody
scenes enuctod from 1SG1 to 18G5, and
tho horrors of the "penca" that have
ensued, ure a warning to trust no longer
to tho signals displayed on tho rocky
coasts where so many ships have already
been wrecked. This movement in favor
of u convention at Baltimore, seems" to
tho writer, to be another of these signals,
and potent for mischief, whether it en?
dorses the Cincinnati movement or op?
It is cheering to see KO muny of tho
leading minds of tho State coming for?
ward to the support of Greeley und
Brown; but all they can do will be
check-mated that moment Greeley and
Brown are identified, in the smallest de?
gree, with the Democrats as a "party."
The best courre, therefore, would be to
have no convention at Columbia. Let
the people stand off from it, and go to
the polis on tho day of eleotion and
quietly deposit their ballots. Let those
who feel so very grateful to tho extreme
Democrats, for thoir past sufferings, call
them together again, if they choose;
and take auotlier lessoUj if they have
not alreadv bud enough.
A Diicuiilon of the Situation.
To Ike Editor of the Charleston News.
SIR: lu tho urtielo which, by your in?
dulgence, yesterday, appeared in the
News, it was argued that the sending of
delegates to Baltimore, as is proposed,
would involve tho whito people of tho
Slate iii the dilemma of having either to
conform to tho decision of that conven?
tion, or to announco beforehand their
purpose not to do so.
It was also argued that tho movements
uow on foot will inovitubly rtvivo the
party feelings of 18(38, HO disastrous to
tho State, and that the very same rea?
sons which existed in 1870 for avoiding
party issues aro moro strongly operative
Upon tbeso grounds it WUB concluded
that both tbo BUCCCSS of tho Cincinnati
movement and the prospects of reform
in South Carolina would be injuriously
affected if -a Stato delegatiou should bo
sent to Baltimore.
In resuming tho topic, it may bc as?
sumed that thu primary and paramount
consid?ration with all the people of
South Carolina ie, or ought to be, a good
local government; that tho chief political
question for them is, or ought to be,
how to secure the needed reforms in the
most certain manner; and that the only
practical measures they can favor will be
such as aim at tho accomplishment of
It may also bo assumed that iu the
present political condition of the State,
the reformation of the local government
cannot be effected, unless, iu the absence
of party contests, a coalition be formed
especially for the purpose, embracing all
the good citizens, without distinction of
party or race.
If this bo BO, what chance will there
be of effecting any reform at all, or even
of attempting a combination for that
purpose, while tba white people of the
State are reviving their Democratic or?
ganizations under the old leaders, and
renewing their affiliations with the na?
tional Democracy? Is it not certain that
tbeso proceedings must re-establish tho
old antagonisms of party?
But it may bo said that this will be
neutralized by tho action of tho Balti
moro Convention. That the adoption
of the Cincinnati platform and the nomi?
nation of Greeley and Brown .-ill pargo
the movement of its taint of Demo
oraoy, and that thus a door of r?concilia?
tion between whites and blacks will be
Unfortunately, this cannot stand sera
tiny, for nono can doubt that the only
point at issue between the Cincinnati
aud Philadelphia wings of the Republi?
can party, which excites any interest
here, is tbut us to the Enforcement Act.
But this is just precisely the issue which,
if iutroducud hero, will widen the breach
between the races, extend and confirm
the influence of the most ?xtremo and
impracticable men on both Bides, and
utterly destroy every reasonable hopo of
bringing about harmony among our
people, and such mutual confidence be?
tween tho races ns is universally recog?
nized to be essential to the political re?
form of the State, and tho peace, happi?
ness and prosperity of ber population.
But if tho movements referred to will
certainly defeat all hope of reform
through tho Sta'.u elections in October,
do they promise us compensation
through tho instrumentality of the Pre?
sidential election? Tako tho most ex?
tremo supposition. Suppose the Presi?
dential election turned upon the nomina?
tion at Baltimore, and this depended
solely upon the casting vote of the
South Carolina delegation, and tbut this
vote being given for Greeley and Brown,
they come in dno time into office. Now,
what will thin delegation have really ac?
complished for themselves, their imme?
diate constituents, or tho people of the
State generally? Some changes may
occur among Federal office-holders, but
evou if the new appointees should be
acceptable, which is to be very much
doubted, the result would be greatly ont
of proportion with its cost to us.
None can suppose that tho mere moral
force of Mr. Greeley's election will con?
strain the State officials here to become
different from what they are, or that a
kiud of subtle influence will be radiated
from Washington, which, penetrating
the Republican party here, will purify it
by converting its dishonest elements or
If anything practical in the way of
local reform can bo expected from Mr.
Greeley's administration, it must bo
looked for iu somo other than a superna?
tural way-but what other wuy is there?
First, tho Cincinnati platform forbids
the President or Congress to meddle at
all in State affairs. Secondly, Mr. Gree?
ley, if untrue to his principles, must be
supported by appropriate congressional
legislation. Thirdly, if both tho Presi?
dent and Congress collude to do what it
is intended to make the Baltimoro Con
vuntiou declaro unconstitutional, name?
ly, to interfere with the regularly consti?
tuted authorities of a State, what can
they do that will ba beneficial? Usurped
powers eau generally be used to oppress
and injure, but Luver to reform and
If we do not reform our Slate Govern?
ment, aud improve our local administra
tion ut the polls in October next, they
will not be and cannot bo altered after
the iib of March.
If we run mad after tho Liberal Re?
publican declaration against the Enforce?
ment Act, we sell ourselves to a new
party for the only political concession
that is not only absolutely valueless to
us, (since tho publio sentiment of the
country has already condemned it,) but
which carries with it the elements of do?
mestic dissension and disorder.
If we revive the Democratic party in
South Carolina, we prolong the hopeless
straggle which has brought ns to oar
What, then, shall we do?
With all diffidence, I reoommend:
1. That we make no organization
whatever, and have no meetings or con?
ventions, and conduct no discussions
concerning the Presidential election. It
is a matter; in which we are powerless to
accomplish anything, in which our inte?
rest is remote and minute, and about
which we really know little, and may well
2. That in the calm thus produced,
good citizens use their best exertions to
harmonize old antagonisms, to improve
the character of the local officials and
members of the Legislature to be chosen
in October, and to bring iuto the publio
service at home or in Congress the bebt
of the available men.

bad an apron table and a neck-tie table.
Tbe neck-ties were made of the same ma?

ladies bought tbe aprons, or the gentle?

wore the apron to match it, to the ioe

comes across something he can't lift.

THS VHXAQK GHOBCH.-It should not look
like a barn or a elorehouse. It should be a
building, tho very sight of which would cause
devout feelings in the breast. A well-carved
cross should point to Hoavsn; massive pan
ueled doors should impress the visitor with
the solemnity of the place into which ho is
entering; stained glass should throw a mystic
light athwart the aisles; pulpit, altar, ceiling
and galleries should be ornamented with figu?
rativo mouldings, and the columns that sup?
port tho gallones, and the balusters that rail
them in, should bo of classic patterns. Any
congregation wishing such a church should
Bend their orders for finishing material to Mr.
P. P.TOALS, importer of French stained glass,
and manufacturer of and dealer in Doors,
