COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Mor ni uer, June 30, 1872.
Being now convinced that its bitter,
inconsistent and suspicious opposition
to the Cincinnati nominees has failed to
mako the least impression npon the De?
mocratic masses, and that the endorse?
ment of Greeley and Brown at Baltimore
is now beyond peradventure, the World
turne, as a last resort, upon the make-up
of the conventions and the abuses of
political conventions in general. Mach
of what the World Bays about tho con?
trol which intriguing politicians exercise
over auch bodies is true. Bat tho evil
cannot be avoided. Nominating con?
ventions are a necessity resulting from
the existence of political parties. The
prime object is to Booare that unity of
aolion among the adherents of any par?
ticular party, without which they cannot
hope to succeed, when an active and
powerful party organization is opposed
The World oharges that conventions
fail to represent the popular will. This
cannot be gainsaid. Bat conventions
do generally approximate the popular
will as near as may be. This is oertainly
the case where the party convening is
ont of power. Officiais who have placo
and patronage to give, and all that infla
enoe whioh the possession of power
exercises over men, may, if they are
unscrupulous enough to do it, pack
primary meetings and thus control con?
ventions. But where the party conven?
ing is ont of power, the only influence
whioh can be exerted is that whioh at?
taches to the superior intelligence and
force of oharaater of individual men.
Now, in tho iustance of the Baltimore
Convention, we believe that the will of
the people will be more nearly expressed
than in any assemblage of the kind for a
long nnmber of years.
The Cincinnati Convention was pre?
sumably far better than the one at Phi
ladelphia, from the faot that the official
patronage and power whioh may have
and doubtless did away the deliberations
of the latter, did not exist in relation to
the former. The Cincinnati Convention,
in the matter of the platform, precisely
expressed the preconceived wishes of the
people, which gave rise to the Liberal
movement. In the nominations, how?
ever, the will of a majority of the people
who favored the Convention was neutral.
More individuals, perhaps, favored the
nomination of Mr. Adams than of any
other particular man. But the people
were not wedded to any man specially.
Provided only he possessed the necessa?
ry qualifications of mind and character,
and, politically, was in sympathy wilh
the principles of the new movement, the
majority of the masses did not mind
much whether tho standard-bearer should
be Mr. Adams, Mr. Greeley, Mr. Trum?
bull, Mr. Brown, or any other good man,
They wore williug to concede that to be
determined by the best judgment of the
delegates, with all the lights before them,
and after fall consultation and discussion
among one another.
With the Baltimore Convention, the
whole case is made up beforehand. The
question has been before the people
from the beginning, presented to thea
through the preas and discussed at tbe
primary meetings. It was whether Gree?
ley and Brown should bo endorsed and
tho offer of co-operation made by the
Liberals accepted or not. The people
knew what was to be decided, and it ii
the height of ubsnrdity to imagine, ac
the World oharges, that a majority
would have remained at home and al?
lowed a minority to manipulate theil
party action. The Baltimore Conven
tion will not only express the will of thc
people in the principles it may lay dowr
or endorse, bat also in the candidates ii
will agree to support.
THE BOBS-HEADS DIE HARD.-NO
satisfied with the utter failure of theil
little game at the Fifth Avenue Hotel
the discontented sore-hoads propose t<
butt their heads once more againat thc
immovable post. The scheme now is tc
get up a little outside show at Baltimon
on the 8th of Joly, the, day before thc
meeting of the great Convention. Witl
a tont wherein to ont their capers, one
the New York World as a hurdy-gnrd^
to grind ont its soreeohing and jerkinj
dissonance, they are vain enough to hopi
that they may attract some stragglers
and with them ran an opposition line
Tho crazy World is ready to make muaii
for any of those impracticables that an
as- crazy as itself; but the thunders o
the Liberal party will soon frighten then
from Baltimore. They will in a burr;
fold up their tent, and with that an!
their discontents disappear.
Tho great Grant rally ot Auderson
Ind., proved a failure. The farmer
' .were oil basy killing potato bugs,
Muskmelons can now be purchased a
five and ten cents in Charleston.
Why Honest Alen Connel Support Grant.
An isijuo that oanuob be avoided is now
formally presented to the Republican
party. So far as Republicana are con?
cerned, the preliminary Presidential
campaign is ended, and they must choose
between Horace Grcoley and Ulysses S.
Grant. Oar choice is Horace Greoley.
It bas not been mado in haBte. Against
hope we have waited the action of the
Philadelphia Convention, giving it tho
benefit of the doubt that it might re*
speob the wishes of so many earnest and
independent Republicans, and nominate
for the Presidenoy a man upon whom
the whole party could nnite. This would
bave been the ovent had the Convention
been chosen by the people, but the peo?
ple had very little to do with it. It was
the creation of the Administration, the
expression of the President's will, and,
in our deliberate opinion, an insult to
American manhood and independence.
We cannot support Goa. Grant, for we do
not believe him flt to be President of
the United States. He was originally
elected as a political necessity, as a mili?
tary hero, and the nation took on trust
the assurances of his civil capacity.
Those assurances have not been justified.
The very first act of Grant was an in?
dication of his ignorance of what a Pre?
sident should bo, when he asked the Se?
nate to repeal a law that he might ap?
point a favorite to the Cabinet. His
whole administration has been con?
ducted in a spirit of aggression, and not of
obedience. The attempt to annex Santo
Domingo was arbitrary and defiant, and
only abandoned when the indignation of
the people became too great to be disre?
garded. Rut these and other actions
were pardoned in Grant, because tho
people still had faith in his official in?
tegrity, a?d attributed these errors to
his inexperience and his habits of mili?
tary command. His unprecedented
oourso in accepting costly gifts and then
appointing the givers to office; his ap?
pointment of his relations to office; his
persecution of all Republicans who were
not in favor of his re-election; his de?
bauchery of the oivil service (so notori?
ous that even Colonel Forney, his friend,
in resigning the colieotorship, said no
journalist could hold office under the
Administration and retain his self-re?
spect); these and similar things gradual?
ly shook the faith of the people in Grant.
When it became evident that not for
the sake of harmony, not for the preser?
vation of the unity of the party, would
Grant consent to the nomination of an?
other, then the selfishness of his ambi?
tion was demonstrated, and we were con?
vinced that he holds his own interests
above those of the Republican party,
and that tho man who said in 18C8 that
"the liberties of this country could not
be maintained without a one-term
amendment to the Constitution," is now
determined, at any cost, to retain the
Presidential power. To select Geu.
Grant after these proofs of his unfit?
ness, and of his dictatorial spirit, would
be a dangerous experiment for the Re?
public. But in tho nomination of
Horace Greeley we recognize a true up?
rising of the people in behalf of the
restoration of noble principles to the
Government. The political tone of one
has been lowered so far that the oharges
against Grant aro no longer denied; thoy
are admitted by his friends and defend?
ed. The Cincinnati Convention pro?
claimed a revolution of the people; it
advanced principles essential to Ameri?
can freedom and prosperity, and it chose
for the Presidency a man whose name is
a synonym of integrity, ability and nu
selfish devotion to his country. Long
before the Republican porty existed,
Horace Greeley was the foremost cham?
pion of its principles, aud he was bat?
tling for freedom when she was weak,
while Grant was voting for slavery,
whioh was strong. One of the founders
of the party, he never was a slave to the
party, and at the close of the war, when
men's passions were harrying them into
excesses, his was the first voice upraised
to plead for amnesty of the conquered
Southern States. His spirit is now that
of good will, and his object to restore
peace und unity to the whole country.
His principles ure known, his character
is pure, his abilities are great, and we re?
joice that in his nomination the oppor?
tunity is given to all Republicans to voto
for a President who will neither bo a
tool, nor a usurper, nor a military hero,
nor a political compromiso for the mero
sake of success. These are the reasons
why we shall vote for Horace Greeley,
and this is tho stand we take as Republi?
cans; und now, at tho beginning of the
canvass, wo predict that Greeley and
Brown will carry Pennsylvania in No?
vember, and that Greeley will bo elected
the next President of the United States.

WILMINGTON, CHARLOTTE AND RUTHER?
FORD RAILROAD.-In connection with
the announcement that the bond-holders
had instituted proceedings to take pos?
session of the road, the Charlotte Demo?
crat learns that Col. John F. Hoke, as
attorney for Col. Childs, got an injunc?
tion last week, from Judge Logan, re?
straining snob proceeding until further
investigation. It is said that there is no
hope for completing the road unless the
bond-holders take hold of it. The case
will be triod before Judge Logan on the
11th of July.
At that queer Grant meeting in Abbe?
ville, Judge Otr declared that Democrats
could not support Greoley, because he is
a dyed-in-the-wool Republican. Judge
H?ge followed, and declared that no
true Republican could countenance
Greeley, because that bucolic philoso?
pher had sold out to the Democracy.
Judge Orr, you see, woe to hook the
whites, while H?ge kept the blacks from
straggling. The chairman, no doubt,
explained that it was the old story-yer
pays yer money and yer takes yer choice.
HON. R. B. HEWITT.-This candidate

ture another boutherner in Canada.
THE GREELEY HEADQUARTERS.-Mr.
Greeley, with bia wife and daughter Ida,
removed from the St. Cloud Hotel yes?
terday to the homestead at Gbappaqua.
Tbe younger daughter, Gabrielle, who
has beon ill of typhoid fever, at Mrs.
Oleaveland's, is BO far recovered as to be
able to accompany the family. Mrs.
Greeley is BO ill that it was necessary to
carry her to tbe depot and from the sta?
tion at Ohappaqua to the farm house,
very slowly and carefully, in a carriage.
She has been au invalid to this extent
for several years. It was only in defer?
ence to ber earnest longing for the coun?
try air and the ?pring water of Chap
paqua, that the philosopher consented
to remove ber. Tbe "peerless spring"
water of Cbappaqua has been furnished
ber in bottles and demijohns by the phi?
losopher's tender care ever since abo re?
turned from Europe, but her craving for
tho sparkling liquid, fresh aud pure
from its borne in the glen, hns not been
satisfied by tbe bottled article. Tho

bis homestead until the election.
At the national headquarters, where
Colonel Ethan Allen wu? on baud, UK

called. Among theta were Hinton
Rowan Helper, of North Carolina, the
author of the famous "Impending
Crisis;" Senator Ben j. P. Rice, of Ar?
kansas; Colonel Juques, of Mississippi,
who visited the Confederate authorities
during the war, with a view to negoti?
ating a peace, by authority of Presideut
Lincoln; C. M. Horton, of Buffalo, N.
Y. ; Louis Rosi, of New Orleans, La.,
and Samuel J. Tilden, who wus closeted
in dose communion with one or two of
tbe Greeley authorities during his visit.
Mr. Helper, who is fresh from North
Carolina, says the Greeley movement is
thoroughly successful iu that State. He
claims to have predicted tho present
sweeping reform movement two yearn
ago. Mr. Helper is going abroad in a
few days, and will not be hero to vote,

A PATRIARCHAL CourLE.-Tho Jack
sou (Mo.) Cash book say B :
Mr. James Cheek, Sr., who, with his
wife, lives a few miles West of Miller
ville, Mo., on a tributary of Little White?
water, was born January ll, 17G9, near
the bose of King Mountain, Gaston
County, N. C. His wife was boru in
1771, in tho tamo vicinity. In 1791 they
were married; that is seventy-eight years
ago, and, perhaps, aro tho ouly living
couple of whom as much can bo said.
In 1811 or 1812, they moved to the vici?
nity of Bowling Green, Kentucky, and
tbcro leaving his wife and family ander
the protection of bis newly-formed ac?
quaintances, Mr. Check enlisted in Jack?
son's commaad, and served under him
during the war with the Creek Indians,
participating in the battles of Talla
butche, Talladega, Autosee, Emucfau,
Horse Shoe Bend, and others of less
note, being present when tho renowned
chief, Weatherford, surrendered und de?
livered his last sad speech. At tho clo'?e
of tbe war, he returned to his family at
Bowling Green, and shortly after moved
to this State and settled near where he
and his wife now live. They reared a
family of eleven children, all of whom
are now living-the youDgest, a daugh?
ter, being forty-two years old.
AU bave married and have families,
except one soo, who is a maniac. The
tea families have reared 100 graod-cbil
drea, eighty still living. Twenty-three
of these grand-children have married,
formiug twenty-three new families, and
have sixty children. Of these great
grand-children, fifty aro living-some of
them old enough to marry. This is a
prolific family, remarkable for lougevity,
honesty, frugality and industry.
TUE DISASTER SEASON.-The crop of
"frightful" disasters promises large this
soasou. Oa Saturday, there was a repe?
tition of the Norwalk, Carr's Rock, New
Hamburg aad Revere disaster ou the
Grand Trunk Railway of Canada, and
about the same hoar Chicago witnessed
ia the fatal baraing of two meiabers of
aa insurance patrol in the discharge of
their daly, a disaster which is almost
overlooked among the horrors of the
day. Saa Francisco, a few hours later,
was startled by aa explosion which
wrecked six buildings, and oa Sunday
the imprisoned forces in the chemists'
shop at New York shattered a building
aad wouoded moro than twenty persons,
and at midday two trains on a Pennsyl?
vania railroad rushed into each other,
killing two persons and wounding seve?
ral others. Tho next thing now in order
is a steamboat explosion aad great loss
of lifo ou some oae of the Western rivers.
Gen. Cassius M. Clay pats the case
strongly and pungently when be says in
his letter to the people: "To-day we live
under a despotism impelled by tue lowest
instincts, tastes and self-indulgence;
whicb, uolike European aristocracies,
shares nothing with the people, bat ab?
sorbs all their substance for camp fol?
lowers who are equally corrupt aod
vicious." Such is the deliborate opinion
of tho Graat domination held by a life?
How have tho mighty fallen! Mr.
James Mace, the pride of tho prize ring,
has just beon whipped in six rounds at
San Francisco, by a cousumptive drag
derk. The spice is all out of him it
Obarlestoa is infested with a gang of
robbers, who are reaping a harvest.

TUE BALL FRIDAY NIGHT. -The com?
mencement ball Friday evening, the first

the different parts of the State, though
not bo large as in better days, was very
fair. The hall was large and admirably
I ventilated, the music fine, the commit?
tees attentive, and everybody looked as
if they expected to have, and did have,
a most enjoyable time. The supper,
which was propared under the able
supervision of Columbia's experienced

THE POISONED TONGUE.-It is the cus?
tom in Africa for hunters, when they
have killed a poisonous snake, to cut off
its head and carefully bury it deep in the
ground. A naked foot stepping on one
of these fangs would be fatally wounded.
The poison would spread in a very short
time all through the system. This
venom lasts a long time, and is as deadly
after the snake is dead as before. The
red Indians used to dip the points of
their arrows in this poison, so, if they
mude the least wound, their victima
would be sure to die. The snake's poi?
son is in its teeth; hut lhere is some?
thing quite as dangerous and much more
aommon in communities, which has its
poison on its tongue. Indeed, your
chances of escape from a serpent are
greater. The worst snakes usually glide
away in fear at the approach of man,
unless disturbed or attacked. But this
creature, whose poison lurks in its
tongue, attacks without provocation, and
follows up its vietim with untiring per?
severance. We will tell you his name,
so you will always shuu him. He is
called slanderer. He poisons worse than
a serpent. Often his venom strikes to
the life of a whole family or neighbor?
hood, destroying all peace and confi?

THREATENED SUSPENSION OF THE
QUARANTINE.-The startling announce?
ment appeared in the Columbia Union,
a few days ago, on the authority of Dr.
Lebby, the health officer of the port of
Charleston, "that, owing to the want of
funds for quarantine purposes, he will
probably be obliged to raise the quaran?
tine from Georgetown to the coast of
Georgia on the 18th of July," and Dr.
Lebby, who has just returned from Co?
lombia, repeats the statement, and says
that all his efforts to obtain any portion
of the liberal appropriation made by the
last Legislature, for the quarantine ser?
vice, have utterly failed. He says that
$2,500 is the minimum amount required
to maintain the quarantine until next
fall, and a warrant for that amount was
drawn last week by the Comptroller
General, but, on presentation to the
Treasurer, it was met by the stereotyped
reply, "No money in the treasury." He
has oinoe been making every effort to
obtain the money from the Treasurer,
and he says he has been assisted to the
extent of their power by Governor Scott
and Comptroller-General Neagle, but
without success, and ha now sees no re?
source but to raise the quarantine, and
abandon the coast to its chancea of in?
fection. The crew of the quarantine
boat ot Bull River havejfready got tited
of waitibg for their pay, and abandoned
the boat lost week; but Dr. Lobb; has
already made privato arrangements to
pay another crew for the present, at least,
and the quarantine is re-established.
