COLUMBIA. S. C.
friday Morning, June 14, 18.2.
This is the title of a pamphlet which
.we received yesterday from New York.
'It embraces a series of editorials wbioh
have appeared in the Tribuna from the
poo of Mr. Greelery, on the subjects of
atuuesty and reconstruction, from the
timo-of tho surrender of the army of
Northern Virginia at Appomattox; also,
-speeches and extracts of speeches upon
public topics since that time. We wish
<4u?t every Democrat in tho land-at
lev?t, every Southern Democrat-could
have opportunity to read this pamphlet,
and thus learn precisely what aro tbe
.-sentiments towards the South, and what
ideas of reconstruction and of tho policy
of the General Government in tbe re-es?
tablishment of the Union Mr. Greeley
las entertained and advocated. Tbe
.pamphlet is ti satisfactory and complete
refutation of the bitter assaults made by
Bourbon or Grant Democrats against
Mr. Greeley, as being the personation of
Radicalism and the persistent antagonist
oi?c very Democratic principle. We defy
?ny candid and intelligent person to
.lead these artioles, written by Mr. Gree?
ley from after the 10th of April, 18G5,
and t?ony that Horaoe Greeley bas been
'the consistent and earnest friend of the
South; and what is more, has urgod no
.measures of reconstruction which were
not based upon the broadest philan?
thropy and purest patriotism. He has
beon right from the first and invariably
-since. The South and the Democratic
party has been wrong frequently, and
'there it is where we have clashed and
found an antagonist in Horace Greeley.
He has not done ns a siDgle wrong since
emancipation. He hos failed to sustain
an when we wero wrong, in matters in
.which we can see that we are wrong.
We should respect and esteem him the
'On the 10th day of April, 18G5, the
'dav-after General Lee surrender ed, Mr.
.Greeley comes out in an article headed
?..Magnanimity in Triumph," in which
he assumes the same attitude and tone
of reconciliation to the conquered South
aa that now maintained by the Liberal
^Republican movement, of which he is
Ibo standard bearer. Liberal Republi?
canism is nothing more than the deve?
lopment of those same ideas, ibo samo
feelings of friendship for the South and
desire for a genuine re-nnion of the
States, which filled the mind and warmed
the big heart of honest old Horaoe
seven years ago. In the article referred
to, after speaking in deprecatory terms
of the efforts which were being made to
swerve Mr. Lincoln from his purpose of
issuing a proclamation of amnesty to the
.Confederates, and ??o instigate him, in?
stead, to institute proceedings to puni- u
th a more prominent of our Southern
leaders, Mr. Greeley writes ns follows:
"Nor can wo agree with those who
would punish the original plotters of
secession, yet spare their ultimate and
scarcely willing converts. Ou the con?
trary, .while we would revive or inflame
resentment against none of them, we
feel far less antipathy to the original up?
holders of 'the resolutions of 1798,' to
? the disciples of Calhoun and MoDuffie,
to the nullifiers of 1832, and the 'States
rights* men of 1860, than to the John
Bells. Humphrey Marshalls and Alexan?
der H. H. Stuarts, who were schooled io
the national faith, and who, in becoming
disanionists and rebels, trampled on the
professions of a life time and spurned
the logio wherewith they bad so often
demonstrated that accession was trea?
"We plead against passions certain at
this moment to be fierce and intolerant;
.bat on oar side are the ages and the
voice of history. We plead for a resto?
ration of the Union, against a policy
which would afford a momentary gratifi?
cation at the oost of years of perilous
?ate and bitterness.
"'Wo have borne for a quarter of a
ooo tu ry the unjust imputation of hating
the Sooth, when we hated and sought to
subvert only slavery, the scourge alike of
South and North-and the sole cause of
discord between them. We have done
what we could-of conree, not always
ojriaeJy-to baffle, to circumscribe-, and
ultimately to overthrow the slave power.
At length, through a snooession of
?vents which no hi man being could have
devised or foreseen, tho end wbioh we
sincerely hoped but hardly expected to
see, is plainly before ns. American
slavery is visibly in the agonies of disso?
lution; if we lire a year longer, we shall
almost certainly see it laid in the grave;
snd, whenever abolished here, its expul?
sion from the last rood of Christendom
that it now curses cannot be postponed
/fiveyears. Let us take care that no vin
-dio ti ve impulse shall bo suffered to im?
peril this glori?os consummation.
-"Those who invoke military oxeoution
tor the vanquished, or even for their
leaders, we suspeot, will not generally bo
found among the few who have long been
-exposed to unjust odium as haters of the
South, because they abhorred slavery.
.And, as to the long oppressed and de?
graded blaoks, so lately the slaves, des?
tined still to be the neighbors, and we
'trust at no distant day the fellow-citizens
.of tbe SoQtborn whites, weare sure their
roi co, could it be authentically ottered,
would ring ont decidedly, sonorously, on
the side of clemency-of humanity."
Tt is to Greeley and other genuine
lovers of the Union and of their brother
man, to whom we are indebted for the
escape of oar most worthy citizens from
the ignominious execution which Radical
hate and fanaticism desired to oonaign
them, and for the saving, too, of what
little property was left oar people from
confiscation. Grant WUB of the number
at that time. Proud of his unexpected
fame, the hero of the Union, and in?
debted for his glory to General Lee, he
was inolined, or seemed to be inolined,
to aot magnanimously, and not the part
of champion to his fallon foes. But he
fell from that high estate. The entice?
ments of office and power and the bland?
ishments of flatterers and sycophants
led him from the path of honor. The
sparks of a higher ambition which
brightened his life after Appomattox
wcro smothered in the sordid lusts of
pelf and political aggrandizement after
he waa made President. Where the
shattered Sooth had once looked for her
staunchest protector, sho foaad her
ohief spoliator. Tho time for execution
of Southern leaders and public conGaea -
tion wu? past, but Grant has done the
worst he contd, or that the most malig?
nant, venomous hater of the South
could desiro. The South has Dot been
confiscated to the Government, bat mil?
lions of its property has been given to
thievish carpet-baggers. It has been
beset, bedeviled, plundered and perse?
cuted with the most relentless hatred,
and Grant is tho man responsible for it;
for he and he only had the power to pre?
vent it. Bat he would not. They have
been his instrumenta who have done
those damnable things, and the work is
his. Grant was with Greeley in '66, but
he left him, and has taken counsel rather
of Morton, Beast Butler and others each
as they. Greeley stands to-day where
he stood tho day after Lee's surrender,
and hos stood ever since, the advocate
of complete amnesty and renewed friend?
ship to the South and of the protection
and enTranohisoment of the blacks. The
following is an extract from an article
following the one before oited:
* * * ??yye entreat the President
promptly to do and dare in the cause of
magnanimity. The Southern mind is
now open to kindness, and may be mag?
netically affected by generosity. Lut
assurance at onoo be given that there is
to be a general amnesty, and no general
confiscation. This is none the less the
dictate of wisdom, because it is also the
dictate of mercy. What we ask is, that
the President say, in effect, 'Slavery
having, through rebellion, committed
suicide, let the North and the South
unite to bury the carcass, and then clasp
han'lo across tl i grave."
We could go on and fill our paper with
such extracts fren the pamphlet we have
in hand. T" 3outh wants no better
friend. * .jre reliable man for Presi?

FATAL ACCIDENT.-A terrible accident
occurred at the Anderson Depot on last
Saturday afternoon, resulting in the
death of Mr. Banders Smith, a well
known sohool teacher of this County.
It seems that Mr. Smith was desirous of
taking the train for Belton at half-past
2 o'olook, and went to the depot for that
purpose. He was considerably intoxi?
cated, and went near the edge of the
platform. The oars were being shifted
at the time, and the freight oars were ran
oat oa the track next to the platform
with the intention of leaving tba hind?
most car. When this was "oat off" from
the train, one of the hands called oat "all
right," as is oastomary, and it is sap
posed that Mr. Smith concluded that this
signal meant to get aboard, wbioh he at?
tempted jost as the train moved rather
briskly, when the oar striking him, he
was thrown down next to the platform,
and was caught between the oar and the
platform, in which position he was
tamed round several times within a
spaoe of less than six inches, crashing
him most horribly, and breaking his left
arm and right thigh. Although the
alarm was instantly given, the train
could not be stopped until the entire
length of the oar was passed, with the
unfortunate man being crashed within
this narrow space. His mangled body
was taken into the reception room of the
depot, where he breathed bio last in a
short time.-Anderson Intelligencer.
DEATHS.-Mr. John China, another
venerable citizen of this community,
breathed his last on Sunday, tho 9th
inst. Mr. China was widely known, not
only among the people of this County,
but to the traveling public, having boon
for many years the proprietor of tho
old Sumter Hotel.-Sumter News.

Judge Orr Blakes ? Speech.
Yesterday afternoon hand-bills were
distributed on the streets, announcing,
in mammoth letters, that James L. Orr
would deliver an address on the subject
of the Philadelphia Convention and its
nominees, at Carolina Hall, at half-past
8 o'clock P. M. The important an?
nouncement was not circulated suffi?
ciently, we presume, for ?there was not
so large an audience present as generally
attendu a one-borne Radical pow-wow.
The ball, however, was pretty well filled
with oolored folks of the masculine per?
suasion, and there was a tolerably fair
sprinkling of whites on tho front seats.
The Judge, who was rosy and lookad
hot, seemed to labor considerably, as bu
spoke in that hard, dry, metallic and
jerky tono characteristic of him. Per?
haps we judged with a jaundiced mind,
but we thought the Judge made a very
poor speech. Judge Orr is never elo?
quent, nor even smooth and pleasing in
his diction, not to speak of his grammar;
but ho is generally sensible, direct sud
forcible in what bo has to say. What ho
does know, he knows thoroughly and
practically, and can present in a con?
vincing manner. We presume he didn't
know much about Qrant that is good,
for he failed to show it.
The Judge spoke of the Philadelphia
Convention, and the wonderful Grant
enthusiasm which pervaded it. He hud
never before, during his long political
career-to which be frequently alluded
seen such an overpowering gush of devo?
tion to any publio mao us was mani?
fested towards Grant at Philadelphia.
One thing that struck him as remarka?
ble, was the singular unanimity with
which all tho delegates went for Grant,
and this, together with what he saw aud
heard at New York and Washington,
and elsewhere, convinced him that,
unless all indications were deceptive,
Grant waB sure to be elected in Novem?
The Judge then launched off into a
straggling eulogy upon Grant, which
was tremendous in design, but failed la?
mentably iu exeoution. As a eulogist,
Judge Orr is not a success, or else his
subject was a bad one, and he is too
much of a Washington to lie with grace
or facility. We rather think that both
causes combined to render this portion
of the Judge's speeoh particularly drag?
ging and laborious. It put one in mind
of a bulky horse, or an over-laden one.
He made desperate lunges, now and then
tightened the chains, burst the hnme
strings, and onoe plunged clear out of
harness when he called Grant a "soldier
and a gentleman." Rut he wiped bis
face and tried it again, and finally suc?
ceeded in lugging Grant from Fort Do?
naldson to Appomattox Oourt House,
showing him a pretty good soldier, il
not a gentleman, all the way.
It had been well for tbe Judge if he
had left Grant at Appomattox, where he
had succeeded in getting him sound in
health and fuir in reputation. Rut thc
fates ordered otherwise, aod tho Judge,
doubtless with an oppressed sigh, hi tehee
on to his hero again, and tugged him tc
the White House, and through it. He
bogged at nepotism, floundered ut gift
taking, and finally tumbled himself.
Grunt aud all headlong into the chaste
created by tho suspension of habeai
corpus. On the subject of Grant's nepo
tism, tho Judgo tried to be legal ant
eyllogistioul, and ended in being verj
silly. He begged tho question aud mad;
no case, auy way.
If, he said, Grant's relatives whom h<
bas appointed are competent, he baa ai
much right to appoint them as anybody
else. The only obligation that Gram
owed tho people was that the public
service should be properly managed, aoc
if his relatives answered tbe purpose, i
was nobody's business.
We advise Judge Orr to read Sumner'i
speech ag ?D, and see there with wha
abhorrence Washington, Jefferson anc
other great and good men looked opoi
this disgraceful offenoe of nepotism. Wt
know, though, that Judgo Orr did no'
mean what be said here. He was play
ing the roi? of the advooato rather thai
the conscientious Judge, and he ough
to be ashamed to instill such false senti
meats into the hearts of Iiis coloree
hearers, who were listening attentively
aud receiving as gospel every word hi

Carolina, and had offices and appoint

We think not. We bave heard it sait

The samo reasons that dissuaded bin
from aoting tho nepotist, should han
made bim blush when he attempted ti
justify Grant's condnot in this regan
before an ignoiant people.
We hope he bas not obanged his
wholesome views on tbis subject since
he tamed Republican; and if he has not,
he is inexcuBuble in justifying that in
another which be would be ashamed to
do himself. On the subject of Grant's
gift-taking, the Judge was soaraely more
pleasing, and even less ooovincing, than

on account of the lateness of the hour.
On the subject of State affairs, Judgo
Orr spoke but a few words at the wind?
ing up. He advised tho colored people
to send only honest men to the nomi?
nating convention, end vote only for
honest officiais. Hu said that the State
Government sadly needed amendment,
and was the cause of much anxiety to
the party ut large. Governor Scott, who
was sitting in front of the speuker, put
on a dry grin here. Ho evidently
thought tho Judgo was getting personal
in bis remarks.

ready to proceed, the case was adjourned
over ti) this morning, at half-past 10

mination will be conducted at the State
House, so as to permit the Treasurer to
be near to his office, as the investigation
may be protracted, and probably will
be for days. Well, there is enongh to

that Jndge Willard means to probe this
