COLUMBIA, S. C.
Thursday Morning. July 4, 1872.
Mose? on (lie aiove.
It seems we are to have a novel politi?
cal campaign in South Carolina this
year. Hitherto the custom has been to
hold a nominating convention, and then,
after the candidates were pat in the field,
tho publia canvass would commence.
Now, though, the converse of this ap?
pears to be the plan-the canvass is to
precede the convention.
Moses bas led off in the State cam?
paign. There have been other meetings
-ono ia Abbeville, addressed by Orr,
Hogo and others; another io Greenville,
addressed by Earle- and others. But
these were chiefly intended as Grant
ratification meetings, for though their
State affairs were discussed pretty freely,
nothing like a preference for gubernato?
rial or other candidates was manifested.
At Calhoun's Milla, Abbeville, on Sa?
turday last, a correspondent of the Union
writes that there was "a most enthusi?
astic Republican meeting." F. J. Moses,
Jr., was the orator of the occasion; and
after the speaking was over, a resolution
was unanimously adopted dedaring
Moses to be the proper man for Go?
A preceding resolution, adopted with
-equal unanimity, was that only honest
and reliable Republicans were to be
eleoted to office. Mosas, then, Scott's
right hand bower, and prominent among
tho most profligate, dissolute, unreliable
?and corrupt members of the General
Assembly, is an "honest and reliable"
Republican, aocording to those good
people of Oalhoun's Mills. This, we
presumo, is a specimen of the reform
which the Republican party is to work.
It ia the kind of reform which the ring
intends, at any rate. But we trust they
may find themselves mistaken. -
There are some Republicans in the
State who, we believe, sincerely desire
reform in the State Government, and
mean to battle for it. It is to Grant's
interest, and that of the Republican
party throughout the ooantry, to relieve
themselves of the odium of this mon?
strous caricature of a government. The
object cannot be accomplished by chang?
ing Scott for Moses, or any other mem?
ber of their clique or known corruption
ist. That would only be swapping the
devil for a witch.
There are some honest and capable
men in the Republican party in this
State. They are well known, for they
aro few in number. Let these ba put
forward for the leading offices and the
white people will vote for them and
sustain their administration in every?
thing which is honest and beneficial to
the State. For minor offices, let new
men be named. It will be far better to
risk the trial of an unknown man than
trust again one who has already shown
himself unworthy of public confidence.
This is the case with three-fourths of
the last General Assembly, and it will be
nothing bnt a farce if, while prating
reform, these men are again placed in
The oolored people have a grave duty
before them, to their State and to their

clusively whether or not they are fitted

This has been done in the first fonr
years of the colored people's role. We
wait now to see what they will do to
remedy the evils they have brought
about. The white people are willing to
forgive the past to their ignorance and
inexperience. Bat there will be no ex?
cuse for them nor salvation for the State
if they repeat the same role again. It is
for them to say and to aot, and upon
them will rest the responsibility.

COLUMBIA, Joly 2, 1872.
To THE EDITOR OF THE PHONIX: After
a long silence, and partly in reply to a
communication of tho writer, published
in your journal some few weeka past, the
editor of the Union to-day has delivered
himself of a Btudied and carefully pre
pared a la Snmner article on "The Cash
Famine" now prevalent in our midst,
but, like all the great effusion? from the
pen of the famous Sumner, when picked
to pieces there is but little left. Like
the fable of the mountain in labor with
the moose, u very small thing is brought
Fortunately or unfortunately, wo are
not all of one mind in our opiniqus as
to tho "conditions of prosperity," as ex?
pounded by the editor of the Union; and
after careful reflection (?) I cannot agree
with him as to the propriety of keeping
our money at homo lying idle. My
friend certainly does not comprehend
what money is, and what'are ita uses,
or else ho would not labor so hard to iu
ouloato the doctrine of ' 'keep your money
at home." He fails to perceive the dif?
ference between the nimble six pence
and the slow shilling. To bo informed,
he should step into one of bia neighbor's
stores, and ask which of the two at the
end. of the year brings in tho largest
profit. Evidently the parable of the
rich man and his servants must be fo?
reign to his mind, or else he would re?
member the rebuke administered to the
one who went and buried his money in
the earth, or, in moro elegant and mo?
dern language, kept his "money at
I thank him for the notice that my
view of "the conditions of prosperity"
"is the best and most honest exposition
of the free trade doctrine in the fewest
words" he has ever seen. It shows on
the part of the editor of the Union a
profound research into the laws of free
trade-a doctrine which I have ever
looked upon as being just as good for a
Republican as for a Democrat, and
which, at this present moment, is setting
half the Republicans of the great pro?
tection States almost crazy.
Unfortunately, my friend is too much
of a protectionist. He is too fond ol
having things all his own way, and looks
npon his own rights as dominant tc
those of others. In fact, he believes in
his "home" theory of "get all you can,
and keep what you have." By thal
means he supposes a man can get happy
and rich-"which is the chief end ol
man." (?) I regret to see that he cannol
comprehend the meaning of the wore
"depleting." He must refer to "Web
ster," and tho next time not labor BC
hard to put a moaning on the word "de?
For the history of the accumulation o
England's wealth, he must search a littb
further. England's wealth dates from i
day long before the theory of proteotioi
was known, or before tho keep-your

England did try protection, but Eng

Greeley And tWe South.
We take the following from the Rich?
mond correspondence of the Louisville
Courier-Journal. It is aa incident in
Mr. Greeley's history so creditable to his
head and heart that it ought long ago to
have been made public, n t less as an act
of justice to Mr. Greeley than a matter
of general interest to the country. The
wonder is that this incident should so
long have been kept secret, dating back
as it does seven yours ago:
Soon after Johnson was installed as
President, he sent a gentleman named
Camp to New York to solicit au inter?
view with Horace Greeley. Unable to
leavo the capital, Greeley must como to
him at once at the White House. Gree?
ley promptly complied with the request.
After the first formal civilities were over,
Camp rose to leave, but President John?
son requested him to romain, and he did
so during the whole interview.
Johnsou opened the conversation by
saying that he found himself in a inost
tryiDg position. The nation was con?
vulsed with passion in consequence of
Mr. Lincoln's assassination; tho situation
was new and embarrassing to him; he
felt inadequate to the task to which he
had been so unexpectedly culled, und he
felt the need, us ho had never beforo felt
it, of the counsel of some cool and saga?
cious man. Ho had, therefore, sent for
Mr. Greeley. What course to pursue,
how to stem the torrent of Northern
frenzy, how to manage the reina of Go?
vernment in a crisis so awful, was a pro?
blem too deep for him to solve. Placing
himself in Mr. Greeley's bauds, he asked,
What must I do?
Thanking him for the conQdeuce thus
reposed in him, Mr. Greeley repliod that
his best course was to call to his assist?
ance a few of the wisest and best men in
the country. They should be represen?
tative men from tho two great sections.
On the part of the North, he would sug?
gest Gov. Andrew, of Massachusetts;
Gerrit Smith, of New York, and Judge
Spalding, of Ohio. A like number of
Southern gentlemon should be called;
they should be invited to tho White
House as guests of the President, there
to remain and deliberate os long as they
thought fit; and, having agreed upon
some policy, they should submit it to the
President for his approval, and if ap?
proved by him, as Mr. Greeley doubted
not it would be, it should bo faithfully
and rigidly pursued, despite the popular
clamor whioh might for a time ensue.
Mr. Johnson thought well of the sug?
gestion. "But what Southeru men
should I iuvito, Mr. Greeley, to meet the
gentlemen you have named from the
"First nud foremost," said Mr. Gree?
ley, "Robert E. Lee, of Virginia."
"Grcut heavens!" exclaimed Johuson;
"be is tho very head and front of the
"I know that," said Greeley, "and
for that very reason you should invite
him. He knows, if auy man does, the
wants of the Southern people; he of all
men possesses the confidence of the en?
tire South; he is upright and pure; he
would not recommend a single action on
your part which would not meet the
approval of your advisers from the
North, aud the result of the delibera?
tions in which Robert E. Lee, Judge
Campbell, of Alabama, and a third man
like them, from the South, took part,
would not only insure the approbation
of the disaffected Slates, but, in the
course of a few months, would, I am
firmly persuaded, bring to your support
every right-minded and right-hearted
man at the North. The pacification of
the estranged sections, your main diffi?
culty, would thus be solved, and your
path made clear towards the solution of
minor difficulties. How are you to dis?
cover the true sentiments of the South
and the wants of its people, if you do
not cousult her representative men?
Aud what sort of restoration will that
bo in the plan of whioh the South hus
no part whatever? It must of necessity
bo one sided, partial and nujust. Be
persuaded, Mr. President, und call to
your aid meu of the standing, position
and temper I have suggested, and by all
means call them from both sections."
lu this strain Mr. Greeley continued
until he had fairly won tho President
over to his way of thinking. The inter?
view ended with the assurance from the
President that he would adopt the views
of Mr. Greeley aud follow them exactly.
He would, however, make a single modi?
fication-ho would substituto Horace
Greeley ia place of Gerrit Smith.
"Very well," said Mr. G., "if yon
call me I will come gludly and aid you to
the best of my ability."
They parted, and ten du j s afterwards
Johnson throw Greeley's suggestions to
the winds, adopted "my policy" aud
pursued it; with what result the country
is but too sadly aware.
. Thus it will be seen that tho role of
pacificator is no new thing with Mr.
Greeley, but is only a part which he has
systematically pursued ever since tho
dose of tho war. So, also, his confi?
dence in the integrity and good sense of
the Southern leaders, and his willing?
ness tn trust the Southern people is no
new thing. What ho is to-day be was
years ago; and what better guaranty do
we waut for the future? At a time when
the North was wild with rage against tho
South, when the execution of every one
of her political and military chiefs and
the confiscation of the entire property
of her people would hardly have atoned
in Northern eyes for Lincolu's assassina?
tion, then Greeley, with the wisdom of
tho statesman and the sympathy of a
great heart, stood up for the South alono
ia his party, recommending a line of
polioy whioh would have brought penco
aud happiness to the country uud exhibit?
ing traita of character which do credit
to and commend humanity.

CHAULES M. FCBMAN.-The Hon.
Charles M. Forman, who died yesterday
after a long and severe illness, exercised,
before the war, considerable influence in
political circles, and occupied, for many
years, a prominent position as a finaucier
nf acknowledged ability. Mr. Furman's
power in public life grew less from per?
sonal magnetism and oratorical art tban
from his equable temperament, intelli?
gent consistency and marked strategic
skill. Mr. Furman had, by years of
study, solved the problems of economic
science, and his munngement of the
principal bauking institution in tbis
State was botb prudeut and successful.
lu Musonry Mr. Furman attained high
distinction, and thu honors of the cruft
were lavished upon him. As a director
in public institutions be was sedulously
utteutivc to his duties, aud scrupulously
faithful to the least of the many trusts
remitted to bis care. But it is as citizen
and gentleman that be most is missed.
No suspicion of personal or public im?
purity dimmed tho brightness of his
shield. A member of the L?gislature of
the State, he bad no higher uim than to
cherish thu traditions und strengthen the
fortunes of his mother, South Carolina.
A buuk officer for au ordinary life-time,
he was a stranger to the tricks of trade
by which duller men grow rich. In bim
there was no taint of double-dealing.
What he seemed ho wus, what he was he
seemed. Quietly, gently, composedly be
pussed his days; meeting the full measure
of every responsibility, and leaving no?
thing undone, private or public, which
could bu brought within the sphere of
his well-considered responsibilities. Yet
men are found who, with tho events of a
single denude to guide them, wonder that
Charles M. Furman should have been a
power in Charleston. They forget that
to be eminent for purity aud patriotism
when ull South Carolina was pure, and
all her children were unselfishly patriotic,
was to reach a height which in these
j worse days few muy hope to gain. Worn
down, wearied out, sick ut heart and en?
feebled in body, the excellent gentleman
has sunk quietly to rest; happier now
than when he lingered un unwilling wit?
ness of the losses, the sufferings and the
humiliations of his people.
Mr. Furman was born here in Septem?
ber, 1797, and was in his seventy-fifth
year at the time of his death. He was
educated in Charleston, studied law
under Judge Richardson, and was ad?
mitted to the bar in 1819. He was
elected to tho General Assembly in 1824,
and represented his fellow-citi/.eus in the
legislative balla for a number of years,
lu 1832 he was elected Treasurer of the
State for the lower division, there being
two Treasurers at that time. He was
subsequently elected Comptroller-Geue
ral, aud then Master in Equity. At an
early age be bad been elected a member
of City Council, and Ailed that position
in connection with thu other offices con?
ferred on him by the public. When
Judge Colcock was elected President of
the Bank of the State, such was his high
esteem of Mr. Furmau's financial ability
aud integrity of character, that he pre?
vailed on bim to accept tho position of
cashier of that institution, an office
which he held until tho death of Colonel
Elmore, in 1851). By the uuauimous
vote of the Legislature he wus then
elected to tho Presidency of the bank, a
post which he tilled until the close of
; the war. He was a member of all the
1 principal boards, both of city and State.
In 1863 he was selected to visit Europe
to conduct an important and delicate
negotiation for tho South Carolina Rail?
road Company, of which corporation he
was a director for a quarter of a century.
In the Masonic Order, Mr. Furman was
