COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tuesday tiorning, June 25, 1872.
Tb? New York Conference.
This new move on the political ohoas
board, with regard to whioh we felt some
apprehension, has resulted most glo?
riously. It is plainly disoovered that the
original cause of the conference waB the
opposition by the ultra free traders, of
whioh William Cullen Bryant may bo
termed the loader, to Air. Greeley. They
issued the circular nod sent invitations
only to suoh Liborals and Democrats as
were known to have boen somewhat dis?
appointed in the action of the Cincin?
nati Convention. But it so happened
that between the sending ont of tho cir?
culars and the time for the meeting of
the conference, the Domooraoy of a
large number of States had spoken so
earnestly and so unanimously for Oreo
loy and Brown, that the large majority of
those invited had becomo oonvinoed that
they were mistaken in Greeley's strength,
and that it is now too late to arrest the
swelling tide of his popularity. Like
wise men and true patriots they bowed
to the inevitable, and declared their con?
victions that Greeley was the man to
beat Grant, and Greeley only. We pub?
lish elsewhere an account of the pro?
ceedings and a oonoise report of the
epeeches of the different members. Tho
most encouraging aspect'of the confer?
ence is the unqualified, hearty and pa?
triotic tone in whioh Sohnrz and Trum?
bull deolare for Greeley. Nothing has
so much bolstered ap the faltering hopea
of the Grantites since the nomination of
Greeley and Brown as the alleged defec?
tion of those two chief architects of the
Senator Sohnrz says, candidly, that
Mr. Greeley was not his choice at Cin?
cinnati, nor was he the ohoioe of many
others. In Mr. Sohurz's opinion, if the
conference had been called immediately
after the Cincinnati meeting, it might
perhaps have changed the candidates
successfully, and without endangering the
cause of reconciliation and reform. Bat
now, it was too late; he himself had
been in error, and Greeley had developed
greater strength than any one had
anticipated. After the earnest and feel?
ing manner in whioh the oppressed
Sooth had stretched oat ita willing hand
to Greeley, he (Sohurz) could not have
the heart to thwart their hope of recon?
ciliation, and in any way, direotly or in?
directly, aid in the re-election of Grant.
Senator Sohnrz takes high grounds.
With him the key note of the coalition
movement is the restitution of friendly
feelings between the North and Sooth.
To this lofty, patriotic end Scharz ex?
presses his willingness to subordinate all
miner considerations. Any opposition
to Greeley, he was convinced, could not
resnlt, at this late day, in anything else
than indirect aid to Grant and serious
jeopardy to the grand parp?se of re?
Senator Trumbull was equally empha?
Mr. John Foray the, of the Mobile Re?
gister, who hos been strongly opposing
Greeley, also expressed his conviction
that there was no other alternative left
now but to support them, as the people
of his State were almost unanimously in
The action of the conference cannot
but consolidate the Baltimore Conven?
tion on Greeley and Brown, and for that
reason we are glad it has met. We maj
now consider it as agreed on every hand
that all rational hope for the defeat ol
Grant rests with Greeley. This being
settled, and the entire Grant opposition
concentrated upon Greeley, we oan await
the result with confidence.
The nomination of Groesbeok and
Olmstead by the few disappointed free
traders amounts to nothing. It is a las)
effort they have made, in tho extremity
of their despair, in the vain hope tc
draw off the Democracy from Greeley
We doubt very mnoh whether Mr,
Groesbeok will accept the nomination
and, in any event, there will be nothinj
heard of the ridiculous nomination af te:
the 9th of July, when the Baltimort
Convention meets and takes action
These men, who seem to have run wilt
on the subjeot of free trade or revenai
reform, and to have ignored entirely al
other and higher questions of the day
are noting a very foolish part. Then
was never before, and probably neve
will be again, so favorable an opportu
nity for the free traders to got that con
trol of Congress, without which al
efforts in the direction of free trade ari
vain. The Cincinnati' Gonvention re
mended the question to the Oongresi
Districts, whioh was not only a prope:
thing to do, inaamuoh as there was i
large number of protectionists arnon]
the delegates, bnt also-the best thing fo
the revenue reformers, for they will thu
get tho assistance of the Greeley Bepufa
lioans-a large number of whom are
protectionists-in tho eleetion of Con?
TI?o South Carolina University.
The present session of this institution
will oloso on Saturday. The examina?
tions have thus far been quite satisfac?
tory, and the students have evinced that
degree of proficiency which results fron
dose application and capable and faith?
ful instructors. The different final exer?
cises will take place during the present
week. This evening Hon. John E.
Buoon will address the two societies.
To-morrow evening Mr. Wright of An?
derson, will deliver the valedictory ora?
tion before the Clariosophio Society, and
on Thursday evening the Euphradian
Society will be addressed by their vale?
dictory orator Mr. John P. Arthur, of
this oity. On Saturday morning di?
plomas will be presented to tho graduat?
ing students, and tho samo evening the
Phi Kappa Psi Fratornity will hold their
fifteeuth annual symposium. But thc
crowning feature of the occasion will be
the commencement ball, at Nickerson's,
on Friday evening. These balls have
always drawn together the elite of the
State, and tho managers are determined
that the present one 6hall provo a com?
plete success. The session just closing
bas been quite prosperous. At no time
since the inauguration of the present
regime has there been a larger number
9f students. Public confidence is, we
trust, becoming restored, and we hope
that the University will enter upon a
now career of prosperity.
This time-honored institution has ever
Ixion an object of pride to the State.
Founded at the close of the last century,
it has beoome identified with South Ca?
rolina, partaking of her triumphs and
iharing in her trials. Within its walls
}ur fathers and grand-fathers have de?
rived instruction, and formed that cha?
racter for truth and integrity for which
.hey were distinguished. In our pre?
sent condition, it is the only remnant of
:ho past left ns, and for this reason
mould it receive the earnest support of
di trae South Carolinians. We trnst
;hat the Legislature will oontinue to
nuke appropriations for it, and that its
trustees will select suitable professors.
We advocate the eduoation of the
nasses. We believe that the only hope
'or us is in a system of free schools fox
whites and blacks, with capable manage
neut and honest disbursements oi
money; but at the same time we protest
igainet any attempt to make a party ma?
chine of them, and to foist mixed schools
ipon ns. The attempt never can be
lucoessfal. It will only produce discord
ind injare the very cause it purposes tc
dd. The whites pay the taxes; let them
lave at least one educational institution.
Endow the Claflin University, and lei
.ho oolorod youth be instructed there.
Bat, at least, let there be one State in
ititution from which the tax-payers maj
?eap some benefit.
THE NEW YORK LABOR MOVEMENT.
The derangement of labor, caused by tin
sight-hour agitation in New York and ai
ither points, continues to exoite genera
-emark; bot it is alleged by the Nev
fork papers that the disposition now ii
o accept the aotion of the employers ox
tuesday night as the turning of th?
ide. That aotion was by the employer!
>f all branohes resolving that they wouU
'eject the eight-hour system, accept tei
lours only as a day'? work, and hold on
,o the bitter end. Ia some trades
hough, it is known the eight-hour rul
las been conoeded, and in others the de
nand for lnoreased wages granted
These, however, encouraged by the sue
sess of those who have held out, wil
probably fall back on the ton-hour sys

Proceeding? of tile Co??civace.
The New York Herald publishes the
following report of the Fifth Avenue
Hotel Cou fore nee:
About 100 delegates presented them?
selves in the room at the hour of 8, to
which boor the meeting had been post?
poned, partly to accommodate Senator
Soburz, who was compelled to go down
to the European steamer to see his
family off in the morning, and partly to
permit a privato canoas of the signers of
the call, who were evidently astonished
and somewhat disconcerted at the great
Grooley strength brought forth in an in?
formal counting of noses. At 3, how?
ever, the doors of rooms 53 and 55 were
open to tboso who had tickets, and were
Senator Schurz, of Missouri, offered a
resolution that the Gbair proceed to a
cull of States, and that each delegate
from each 3tuto express bis individual
and separate opinions us to the future
course of the Grant opposition. Colonel
Grosvenor, in seconding thu motion,
said that tho meeting was so profoundly
guarded from thc inquisitive ears of re?
porters that no member need fear pub?
licity, and ho boped all would express
tlit ir free and full opiuions. He ulso
movod that each member present bo put
under Beal of confidence not to report
Tue motion wai agreed to, aud the
Chair was about to cull "Alabama,"
when Senator Lyman Trumbull entered.
He waa greeted with a storm of applause,
and a speech waa demanded BO vocifer?
ously that Governor Cox motioned him
to the rostrum. He spoke as follows:
GENTLEMEN OF TUE CONVENTION: I Bee
among you such diverse elements of the
political world that, were I a trimmer, I
would doubt bow to address you. But
to the question that comes uppermost
among us thero is only ono answer which
occurs to me as reasonable or possible.
How aro we to defeat Grant? By sup?
porting Greeley. [Immense applause,
in wbicb the free trade clique on the loft
side of the hall refused to join.] Are
we to crush oat all tho evils of the Grunt
administration by dividing tho opposi?
tion against bim? Are we going to set
up a third party and refuse the uid of
the party that already bas a most popu?
lar candidate, a thorough platform, and,
what is almost as good, ia in possession?
Senator Trumbull's speech created a
moat remarkable sensation. The little
coterie on tho left side bad been all
smiles heretofore, bad mado themselves
personally prominent in welcoming each
new comer, and had engineered most of
the applause when the list of officers was
read. Bat now they sat silent and almost
sallen, while a group of Southerners in
rear of them, who had looked through?
out as if the intense respectability of the
whole thing were almost overpowering,
recovered their spirits, joined heartily in
the applause, and patted one another
approvingly on the back.
The Chairman called "Alabama," aad
John Foray the, of the Mobile Register,
rose in his place. He did not have
much to say, bat it was all in tho vein of
Trumball. He thought Greeley was the
beat solutiou of the problem. [ Ap?
plause from all quarters but the left
"Arkansas" was represented by Sena?
tor Benjamin F. Bice, who reiterated
tho sentiments of the other two.
"Connecticut" called ap Gov. Eng?
lish, who said that Connecticut would go
for Greeley by a great majority, and he
believed it the plain coarse for all the
opponents of nepotism and corruption
in offioe to go for him, too.
LaFayette 8. Foster, who was Vice
President daring a portion of President
Johnson's term, followed in a similar
David Clark, an original Abolitionist
of the Garrison, Gerrit Smith and Tap
pan Behool, aad the gentleman who re?
commended tho colored cadet to West
Point, came next, aad agreed with the
Democratic ex-Governor on the Greeley
Messrs. Fesscndcn and Bromley, tho
latter editor of tho Hartford Pest, reite?
rated these sentiments, and David A.
Wells, to whom the free trade coterie on
tho left of tho hall looked with happy
confidence as their first moatb-piece,
rose aad spoko to the following effect:
GENTLEMEN OF THE CONFEBKNCE: I am
an old free trade man, and have advo?
cated the doctrine of free trade all the
beat years of my life. Bat in this mat?
ter wo have delegated free trade to the
people, whero it and every other impor?
tant public question belongs. There is
DO question of free trade or proteotion
ia the cauvns-'H. There is only the ques?
tion of beating tho man who scandalizes
bbo ooantry in tho White Hoaso, and on
that question I seo no other recourse
than Horace Greeley.
The free trado coterie on the left al?
most bounced out of their sonto at this
unexpected stab from a friend. Thoy
began now to eonsult among themselves
pery earnestly. Some of them withdrew
mteide the main door, and, almost in
;nr-8hot of those unfortunate reporters
ivho were sternly excluded from the de?
corations, discussed hotly this unex?
pected eruption of the Greeley Vesuvius.
Judge Henry W. Hilliard responded
o the call of Georgia, and pledged that
3 ta to to Greeley by 50,000 majority.
Horaoe White, the editor of the Chi
?ago Tribune, a freo trade journal, re
ipooded for Illinois in a similar vein for
Indiana and Iowa followed in the same
Henry Watterson, the editor of tho
louisville Courier-Journal, in answer to
ho call of Kontucky, said:
GENTLEMEN: All roads that lead from
Jreeloy lead to Grant. [Loud applause.]
rho Democrats of tho South want not a
ihysical enfranchisement alone, bnt
coral enfranchisement. This is offered
hem by Horace Greeley and his plat
Judge S tall o (interrupting)-What
loss the gentleman propose to do with
he Demooratio party? JJ JOH he sup
)ose it is to be disorganized?
Watterson-Tho Do moorul ie party?
Why, sir, the D?mocratie party ia the
South has been disorganized ever since
I860. It gave up politics altogether
then, and went into war.
Judge Stallo-Do you speak for the
Sonthern people in your advocacy for
Watterson-I believe that I speak for
a large portion of them, and I know that
between Greeley and Grant they prefer
Greoley. Kentaoky will go for him by
many thousands, and Tennessee will give
him at least 60,000.
A stormy debate here ensued, in which
the reporter lost the thread of the argu?
ment, but when peace was resumed,
John Foisy the. General Hill and Senator
Johnston, of Virginia, and a number of
other Southern gentlemen were observed
to cross over and hold earnest consulta?
tion with Watterson, from which it
was evident ho bad expressed their senti?
Ex-Governor Pillsbury, of Maine,
based all his hopes on Greeley.
Edward Atkinson, of Massachusetts,
tho famous free trader, in response to
the cull for his State, remarked that the
questiou of free trade was inseparable
from any Presideutial or Congressional
election. Ile thought proteotiou such
au evil that he could not consent to
swallow Greeley eveu to bent Grnut.
I Immense applause from the decorous
coterio on the left. |
It was about 6 o'clock, and tho con?
ference was adjourned until 8 iu the
On re-assembling nt 8 o'clock, Colonel
Grosvenor responded to tho call of Mis?
souri. Carl Schurz was not preseut.
Colonel Grojvenor and Mr. Daeuzler
were both for Greeley, and ?aid Missouri
would go for the sage strong.
New Jersey was represented by a fiery
baud of true blue Bourbons, who would
not accept Greeley under any circum?
stances. Judgo David Naur, a little
white-whiskered old gentleman, with u
flushing eye and a vehement style of de?
clamation, leaped to his feet at the call,
and said, for one, he didn't believe
Greeley was the panacea for his woes.
The Democratic Convention that is to
assemble at Baltimore has no right and
uo power to nominate a Republican.
They must put upa man and a platform
of their own. It ia not for Republicans
to say to them, "Here is your man and

better way out of our troubles than
through Greeley, and that is a straight

vociferous applause and hearty approba?
tion from the free trade coterie on the
left of the room, the Herald reporter
touched hint ou the shoulder and said,

"Yes," suid he, "and so is evtry true
Parke Godwin, of the Evening Post,
appeared at the call of( New York, and
made a strong anti-Greeley speech,
which was evidently carefully prepared
"This movement was called origi?
nally," said he, "in the interests of
tariff and revenue reform, and the man
you set up as tho exponent of revenue
reform is ono who has all his life been a
persistent, unrelenting, and, as he him?
self has said, a 'ferocious' protectionist.
You ask for reform, you Southern men,
and you are content to take one who is
a ferocious opponent of all the reforms
you ask for." I Lau g li tor and applause.]
Mr. W. Dorsheimer, of Buffalo, re?
sponded on the other side, amidst in?
creasing confusion. From this until the
close, the speeches varied, most of them,
however, favoring the Greeley move?
ment, and free trade ooterie, in despera?
tion at finding themselves in the hands
of the Philistines, devoted the rest of
their efforts to breaking up the meeting
before any decision could be reached.
At this point Carl Schurz appeared, and
having missed his turn in the call of
States, was accorded the privilege oi
speaking then and there. He asked for
himself no peculiar privilege. He was
there to do his best to harmonize the
conflicting elements of the party opposed
to the corrupt and demoralizing rule ol
Grant and his men. All he could do he
would do cheerfully ami to the best ol
his ability to secure for America rights
long lost and liberties disregarded. He
had been misunderstood and misrepre?
sented in this political fight, and he woe
glad to have the opportunity of explain?
ing his position. He stood by the nomi?
nations well and carefully made at Cin?
cinnati, and would heartily support the
ticket. [Applause, j Perhaps a better
ticket could havo been devised, and per?
haps not. Mr. Greeley is now before
the people and his name cannot be with?
drawn. The overwhelming waves ol
opinion are rising in bis favor, and il
wonld ba idiotic to attempt et this junc?
ture to stay their progress. We have to
vote for Greeley or declare ourselves fot
Grantism. What shall we do? The
voice of the country responds cheer?
fully, "Greeley and Brown for President

Senator Sohnrz then proceeded to
laud the gentlemen on the national
ticket, and expressed the opinion that il
Mr. Greeley were elected-as he will be
by an overwhelming vote-he would se?
lect from all parties auoh a Cabinet and
draw around him snob, men as tho nation
would place entire and implicit confi?
dence io. ; Horooe Grce' y will not be
the President of a seotion of the country,
the creature of a clique, the automaton
of a cabal. He will be the President ol
the American people, one and indivisi?
The effect of this speech, delivered
with great vim and earnestness, was
most demoralizing to the free traders,
and settled tho question as to wbat they
would do. Squarely and evenly the situ?
ation was presented by the Senator ttl
the doubtiog Thomases of the Liberal
movement. It was preoisely 1 o'clock
A. M. when Mr. Sohurz ceased speaking,
and then followed a desultory, purpose?
less conversation, as amusing as it waa
absurd. A blind free trader in specta?
cles then arose, and 6aid ia effect that
the "jig waa ap," and that there was no
ase ia kioking against the pricks, fie

This was pat to the vote, and was car?

MEN WHO Ann IN PKISON.-Among
the political prisoners in the Albany
penitentiary, sentenced nader the infa?
m?os Ku Klux law, is a man by tho
name of Moore, and this is his history,
as he gave it in brief, from his sick bod,
to the editor of tho Utica Bee:
"Before tho war I was a well-to-do
planter in Alabama. I owned many
slaves, whioh constituted my wealth.
The events of the war reduced me
nearly to poverty. At itu close I gather?
ed together the fragments of my ruined
estate, hired a few of my former slaves
and commenced life anew. All wont
well with me uutil a month or pix weeks
ago, when I was suspected of being a
Ku Klux, arrested by u United States
Marshal, given a hasty trial, found
guilty, sentenced, und two weeks ego
was brought from Washington to this
prison. My term is ten years."
The editor of tho lian adds : "The man
vowed upon his honor, and as hs prayed
that it might be his death-bed, that he
was as innocent of the crime charged
against him as I was myself. He knew
nothing whatever of the Ka Klux. I
asked bim if he badu family. The men?
tion of family seemed to paralyze him
with grief. He sobbed bitterly, and be?
tween the tears I heard him moan 'Oh!
my poor little boy-my poor wife I* I
hastened away, but, uudcr the pretence
of filling bis kid with water, in a half
hour I returned. He was still lying on
his narrow bunk, and, clasping a Bible
in his hands, seemed deeply interested in
one of the plaintive Psalms of David."
THE FRENCH WAU INDEMNITY.-At
length a definite conclusion bas been
reached by the French and German Go?
vernments in regard to the payment of
the remainder of the war indemnity due
by the former to the latter iu accordance
with the peace settlement. By the terms
of the agreement now entered into one
of the three milliards of francs (3,000,
000,000) remaining due is to be paid by
February, 1873, another milliard by the
close of the same year, and another in
1874. When the French Government
shall have paid 500,000,000 francs of the
amouDt the departments of Marne and
Haut Marne will be evaouated by the
German troops; and when the payment
of each 1,000,000,000 is complete one
third of the German army of occupation
will be withdrawn from France. The
French Government has already taken
measures to raise the requisite amount
to relieve the departments of Marne and
Haut Marne al once.
If the War Department be not too
much engaged in making arrangements
for the elections in the Southern States,
perhaps it can inform ns whether the
following order was really issued at
Yagainia Bay, Oregon:
"NOTICE.-Any person employed on
this work-Gape Foulweather Light?
house-who shall speak disrespectfully,
on or off duty, of the President of the
United States, or any member of the
Cabinet, or any superior officer of the
Government, will be immediately dis?
charged. HENRY M. ROBERT,
"Major of Eogineers U. S. A."
It appears from this that any person
capable of speaking disrespectfully of
the President, or of Mr. Fish, or of the
rest of the constitutional advisers, is in?
capable of working to any purpose on a
light house. We are glad to have the
thing settled, but we are sorry to have it
left undecided whether a journeyman
mason who should Bpeak disrespectfully
of the vice-President would be equally
incompetent.-New York Tribune.
Some of the friends of Colfax claim
that the cold-blooded manner in which
he was slaughtered at Philadelphia, has
lost Grant the State of Indiana, and
it is very likely it has. With Indiana
and Pennsylvania both lost, Grant had
as well throw up the sponge, and the loss
of Pennsylvania, unless the Hartranft
ticket ia knooked overboard, is a fore?
gone conclusion. Indiana oaght really
to be glad that Colfax was defeated at
