COLUMBIA. 8. C.
Tuesday Morn in?, , June ll, 1872.
Wbat South Carolina. Can Do for Air.
* We had entertained the hope at the
inauguration of the Liberal Republican
movement that it mjght be instrumental
in effecting a political union between the
property-holders of South' Carolin ti and
the oolored .voters, which is so much to
be desired, and which only can ever
assure to oar misruled State a. go vern -
meut administered with economy aod in
the true interests of the people. As
long as universal suffrage holds, and race
determines party affiliations, and the
negroes.who are in such a large majority
remain ignorant and destitute of pro?
perty, just so long will they continue to
be the dopes of unscrupulous office
seekers, aud the people of South Caro?
lina be cursed with a corrupt and profli?
gate government. How this state of
things will end, we do not know. That it
mast end in some way or other, we are
morally certain. A government whoso
sole work is to plunder, whose moral
turpitude is regarded with loathing by
all good men, which has neither strength
nor oomelineae, nor any other attribute
to inspire fear or command respect, must
fall. It is for the oolored people to say
whether they will strike the blow them?
selves and destroy the noisome structure,
or are content to risk their newly no
quired rights and privileges in its totter?
As we have said, we were inclined to
nope that the Oincinnati Convention
would aid in redeeming uur State, by
providing a platform and naming candi?
dates npon which tho whites and blacks
could onite. Horace Greeley, whose
honesty and kindly sympathy commends
him to the white people, and whose life?
long advocacy of freedom and unswerv?
ing friendship to the blaok man, it was
reasonable to suppose, made him liked
by them, seemed ia every way tho moat
anitable man who could have been se?
lected for this parp?se. We must ad?
mit, however, that there has not been
any marked manifestation of an inclina?
tion on the port of the oolored people to
remember the services of their old and
long-tried friend as yet. What may be
developed during the campaign, and
what effect a oanvass of the State by Mr.
Sumner and other Northern Republicans
favorable to Mr. Greeley might have, to
burst the shaoklea of the political slavery
which now bind the unconscious oolored
voter hand and foot, we do not know.
We would be glad to seo the effort made,
for if successful, it would have an imme?
diately ameliorating effect in our State
Government Our own white people,
though, cannot do much for Unole
Horace in this State. But there is a
work for them, pr a part of them, which,
if earnestly and vigorously performed,
will do more to advance the cause of
Greeley and Brown, which is reconcilia?
tion and renewed friendship between
the North and South, than if they were
to poll the entire vote of South Carolina
for them in November. Let each of
South Carolina's trusty sons as Kershaw,
Butler, Burt, Porter, McGowan, You
mans and Aldrich go and canvass the
Grant's tramp card ia tho war, and the
animosities and distrust engendered by
it. It was npon the war feeling that he
was elected in 1868, and upon that he
and the ultra Radicals mainly depend
now. They make all manner of misrep?
resentations of the people of the South
and their condition. They arouse the
too ready suspicions of the masses against
us, and persuade them that we are still
unfriendly to the Government, and only
kept quiet by the strong hand of power.
They talk of peace, but they evidently
do not desire it, for they pursue just
that course which stirs up bad blood.
The Northern man who, in a political
speeoh, villifies Mr. Davis, Whom the
South, whether undeservedly or not,
does most sincerely revere and esteem
who fights Aver again the battles of the
war, and, with fiendish fervor, denounces
all our people who are not Republicans
as disloyal, unrepentant rebels-snob a
one may, with an air of puritanic godli?
ness, dwell upon the blessings of peace,
but ii has no place in his heart. He is
nothing more than a hypocrite, and
Buoh, for the most part, are Grantitss of
the North. Nearly all profess to desire
peaoe and a full and genuine restoration
of the Union, and yet in almost the same
breath they will fan the dying embers of
the war, that they may excito hatred to?
wards the South and those whom it
favors. There is nothing in the world
which T;ould do so muon to counteract
this false and evil inflaenoo, as the pre?
sence and the VG?CC of representativo
The gentlemen whom we have named,
?nd others of their stamp, men of high
oharaoter, itellectaal oulturo, earnest i a
triotiam and unquestionable integrity,
oonld awaken sensations in the hearts of
tho Northern people of fraternal .sym?
pathy and regard, BUOU as no Northern
man could ever do, and would win thou?
sands of votes to the party of re union.
Their bare presence would give the lie
to the calumnies of oar enemies, that
we are sallen and still cherish a lingering
.dislike to the Union. We hope to see
this sommer and fall the entire North
and West flooded with Southern orators,
battling for Gree'ey and Brown; and we
wonld be glad, too, if Northern speakers
should vint this benighted land aud
address our people, blauk and white.
It ooald not fail to be beneficial.
Ono of our esobanges very pertinently
remarks that the Grant organs are evi?
dently bewildered. In ono breath they
prove to Democrats that they should not
support Horace Greeley because of bis
Republican principios, and in the next
they prove to Republicans that they
shoald not support Horace Greeley be?
cause he has abandoned Republican
principles nnd gone over to the "Copper?
MASSACHUSETTS AND SOUTH CAROLINA
AT PHILADELPHIA.-Take the Sooth Ca?
rolina delegates, for example. Their
case is perhaps the worst, bat there are
others not muoh better. What do they
represent? The most villainous govern?
ment ever seen in a free Christian com?
monwealth-a government whioh ia only
a synonym for scientific soonndrelism
and organized pillage. A few unscrupu?
lous and avaricious adventurers have
temporarily confiscated a State of the
American Union to their private ase and
emolument. They have found a few
native-born rascals as unscrupulous a's
themselves, and taken them into part?
nership. They have secured the igno?
rant negroes by a system of secret, oath
bouud sooieties; by skillfully appealing
to their resentments and their fears-in
whioh the Ra Klux insanity bas, of
ooarse, been of invaluable assistance to
them; by the magio of the Republican
name; and by dividing office and plun?
der with their leaders, always reserving
for themselves, however, the lion's share.
The history of their shameful mle is
known to tho American people. Yet
these fellows call themselves Republi?
cans, hold np their heads with the best,
and oheer for Grant with the loudest.
They come into the National Conven?
tion, their hands reeking from corrupt
jobs, their pookets heavy with stolen
money, and sit down on equal terms
with the representatives of Massachu?
setts. They are quite right in regarding
Greeley's election as "something disas?
trous." It would be aa irroparablo dis?
aster to them, as, for that matter, would
be the eleotion of Adams, or Groasbeok,
or almost any one who has been named
-except Grant. It wonld be a formal
notioe to quit; a warning that their time
was np; in fact, it wonld bo rainy dey
nome in very truth. No wonder that
they are for Grant "enthusiastically."
They have good reason to be.

AN AMENDE TO MABSHAII WALLACE. -
We are glad (savs the Beaufort Republi?
can, ot the 7th,) to be informed that the
report freely circulated in tbs State
papers of. the appointment of the
mfiimoos Bad Williams, as Deputy
United States Marshal, is untrue. His
employment in connection with the ar?
rests in Georgia is said to be by direotion
of the United States District Attorney.
In that case, Williams seems to have
aoted with his asaal consistency, first
forging an order to arrest his own cousin,
and then leaving Hendrioks in tho lurch
to bear the brunt of the villainy. Mr.
Corbin, we think there has been enough
of this fellow. Get a twist on him and
hang him. At all events, get some other
tool. If it is only by such moans that
Ka Klax can be arrested and convioted,
?, G advocate the shooting of them on
sight by the soldiers, without trial. That
woald be despotic, but not so disgrace?
ful or subversivo of all respect for the
law and its officers, as a continuance of
methods of obtaining evidence, remind?
ing ns strongly of the English State
trials before Jeffreys. There are other
incidents oonneoted with these trials,
with reference to the composition of the
grand and petit juries, whioh show a
much stronger desire to obtain convic?
tions than to obtain justice. ' These may
bo spoken of in f atare.
BURIED TREASURES UNEARTHED.-Last
Friday morning, two colored men, while
digging a ditch on Noisette's Farm, near
the forks of the road, unearthed a large
iron pot or kettle Ailed with specie, whioh
looked aa if it had been buried for a
number of years, it having tamed a
dirty brown color. The pot or kettle
was made of iron, and was so rusted that
it fell to pieces on being lifted out. It
was filled with Spanish silver dollars,
doubloons and some Mexican gold coin,
the sizo of an American half eagle. The
colored men aoted very cautiously about
their disoovery, and it only beoame
known in the neighborhood by a casual
remark dropped by a oolored woman
who had gono to give them their dinner,
and bad been given four or five of tho
gold pieoes with a warning to keep her
mouth shut. The luoky finders have
concluded to settle in life upon the pro?
ceeds of their fortunate disoovery, and
will doubtless have a spooial interest
hereafter in the eubj"ot of drainage.

THE HOM. AUGUST BELMONT Dunnes
Hrs POSITION-GREELEY THB ONLY
CHANCE AGAINST GRAJ?T.-The following
correspondence appears in Thumday'a
Cincinnati Commercial and Enquirer:
CINCINNATI, Jane 6, 1872.
In view of the unfriendly comments
and unjust aspersions indulged in re?
cently by Western papers, of the Hon.
August Belmont, I have obtained his
permission to publish the followiog let?
ters, written me by him, as of their re?
spective dates. The exalting desire of
some few feather journalists to force me
to a position ou the Greeley question is
affecting; and, coupled with tho facts
and arguments of Mr. Belmont, might
bring me to a posture. But I don't
know so well about Democrats obtaiuing
their political medicine from the now
drug store of Halstead and McLean, es?
pecially with such a coating of asafooUda
upon it ns surrounds the Greeley pill,
for it is only fishy Democrats that like
such bait. However, as a nervino to
my sporting friend of the Louisville
Courier Journal, I will say that I prefer
Greeley to his Mr. Hendricks, tho cham?
pion traitor of his day; sud, as between
Grant and Greeley, am decidedly op?
posed to any more ooutrulism.
C. W. WOOLLEY.
LONG ISLAND, May 21, 1872.
MY DEAR SIR: Your kind letter of tho
17th inst, reached me hero, and io reply
I beg to express to you iny warm thanks
for tho flattering confidence which you
manifest for my judgmeutand sincerity
of purpose. I may err in my apprecia?
tion of the difficulties which surround
us, but I oan say, without egotism, that
? merit your good opinion us to the
sincerity of my intentions. So much
am I impressed with tho futal conse?
quences in store for our oommon coun?
try, by the re-election of Grant, that I
would willingly vote for my deadliest
enemy in order to prevent such a ca?
tastrophe. The nomination of Greeley
is one of those stupendous mistukes
which it is difficult even to comprehend;
but it is now aa accomplished faot, and
wo have to deal with it as best we can.
I take it for granted that all thinking
mon have come to the conclusion by
this time that the nomination of a
straight Demooratio ticket at Baltimore
will either eleot Grant by the people, in
case of Greeley's withdrawal, or throw
the eleotion into the House if Greeley
should stand, aod then, also, Grant will
be sore to be elected. If the Conven?
tion can be got to nominate Greeley at
Baltimore with anything like unanimity,
the largo body of the Democratic party
throughout the country will vote for
him, and we shall have enough Republi?
can votes to make the election more than
probable, even if we should IOHO one
tenth of our vote by defection and apa?
Whether this nomination eau be
brought about remains a serious ques?
tion, and I am not able to form a judg?
ment on this point at this early day.
At present many leading men and party
organs, beside a very large portion of
the German vote, are bitterly opposed
to him. Between now and the 9th of
July, Greeley's strength must show aa
increase or decline, and it will then be
for our Contention to adopt what course
may be wisest. Though he is to me the
most objectionable person whom the
Liberals could select, still I am decided?
ly of the opinion that our best policy
will be to endorse the Cincinnati plat?
form and tioket. This is the general
feeling in this State, and our delegation
to Baltimore is, by a large majority,
oomposed of Greeley men. As our de?
legation votes as a nnit, you may set the
vote of New York down almost certain
for Gresley. I was not at Rochester,
and have been left off the list of dele?
gates, most probably on account of the
hostile position of the World and Staats
Zeitung against the Cincinnati nominees,
as th? delegation undoubtedly was se?
lected with but that one idea of making
it sure for Greeley. A most absurd story
has for years past been started, aud gen?
erally credited, that I am a large share?
holder in the World and control its ten?
dencies. I have never held a single
share ia it, and do not exorcise any in?
fluence over its editorials. Should cir?
cumstances shape themselves so that the
Liberals desert the Cincinnati ticket,
then I hope that the choice may fall ou
Groesbeck. He, with Sanford Churoh
or J. Q. Adams, would make a stronger
ticket than any other combination.
Yours, very truly,
NEW YOKE, June 1, 1872.
MY DEAR SIR: * * * Greeley has
so fur not lost strength in our State, and
the muetiug of the free traders, night
before last, though composed of many
of oar best citizens, did not have any
outside effect. Their plan of making a
new nomination will amount to nothing.

"Tra WAH SPIRIT REVIVED ."-The
Washington Chronicle has among its
conspicuous headings ot the proceed?
ings of the National Republican Con?
vention, "Tho War Spirit Revived."
And Mr. George H. Stuart, ot Philadel?
phia, concludes his note ef congratula?
tion to Mrs. Grant, on tbe nomination
of ber husband, as follows:
"May God bless him, and preserve his
valuable lifo till every veutigo of rebel?
lion is orashed out."
If this is to be the key-noto of the
Presidential campuign, it disclosss a
spirit and purpose to be greatly deplored.
Surely tho better instincts of the Ameri?
can peoplo revolt at the idea of reviving
the war spirit now, seven years after the
war has terminated, aud raking its em?
bers for sparks to flro tho Northern
heart. What "vestige of rebellion" is
left, except the ruiuud survivors of the
Confederate struggle, to all except a few
of whom Congress hus just grunted nm
nosty, and though grudgingly, perhaps,
yet showing that it no longer would bold
thom to be rebels. The convention
itself claimed for the Republican party
that "it suppressed a gigantic rebellion."
Then lot Republicans be consistent, and
talk no further of the nonsense of crush?
ing out tho "vestiges of rebellion." If
there were nothing botter than that to
conduct the campaign on, it would be
more honest to retire from tho held.
By tho cession of the Navigator Islands
to tho United States, tho Government

place for tho President to spend his
wiulers, as he now, for luck of any such
outlet, hus to stay, cramped up, in the
city of Washington. For years the
tribes of tho islunds havo been in a con?
stant state of war and revolution among
themselves, stopping only when exhaust?
ed, and beginning again ns soon as suffi?
cient resources accumulated, until an
utter extinction of the natives was immi?
nent from their owu follies. Last
spring, after a temporary season of peace,
hostilities began again, and there whs all
the renewed barbarities of massacre, for
tho victors never give quarter. When
the President of tho Polynesian Land
and Commercial Company, Mr. Stewart,
made the proposal to King Mallestoa,
that he should cede his possessions to

LOWEST TYPE OP HUMANITY.-Ou the
island of Borneo has boen found a cer?
tain race of wild creatures, of which
kindred varieties have been discovered
in the Philippine Islands, in Terra del
Fuego, and in South America. They
walk, usually, almost erect on two legs,
and in that attitude measure about four
feet in height. They are dark, wrinkled
and hairy. They construct no habita?
tion, form no families, scarcely associate
together, sleep in caves and trees, feed
on snakes and vermin, on ant's eggs and
on each other. They cannot be tamed
or forced to any labor, and are hunted
and shot among the trees like the great
gorilla, of whioh they are a stunted copy.
When they are captured alive, one finds
with surprise that their uncouth jabber?
ing sounds like articulate language.
They tarn np a human face to gaze at
their captors, and the females show in?
stincts of modesty; and, in fine, these
I wretched beings aro meo.
It is very properly urged by the Chi
oago Tribune that, in retaliation for the
grave offence of tho coffin-makers in
striking at this inopportune time, it is
the plain dnty of every man, woman and
child to go to bed carly, rise with the
lark, stop eating encumbers, bathe daily,
keep a good conscience by going to
church once a Sunday, repair the sewer?
age, eschew over-ripe vegetables, and
keep his temper sweet, ia order that he
may bo villainously healthy and keop
out of the hands of the coffin-makers as
long as possible. Any man who will eat
green apples or dally with cabbages
when the coffin-makers are on a strike
ought not to complain, because he is
directly encouraging thom in their un?
reasonable practices; but, at tho same
time, he ought not to prejudice the rest
of the community by helping to increase
I their funeral expenses.

Sunday morning by one of the greatest
rain-falls known in the history of that
part of tho country. The storm com?
menced about midnight. The rain-fall
was very great. The prairies were fairly
submerged. The small streams were
swollen into rivers io an incredibly short
space of time. Fences were lifted from
their places and sent eddying down the
turbid streams with amazing velocity.
The whole section of couutry from the
Wabash to the Iviskaskin, > nd South of
the Toledo, Wabash and Western Rail?
road, it is said, has been visited by this
great flood. Hundreds of acres of laud,
on which corn bad been planted, were

were destroyed. The damage to the
