For President of the United States.
HORACE GREELEY, of Stir York.
B. GRATZ BROWN, of MlUOUrl.
COLUMBIA. S. C.
Sunday Morning, July 14, 1872.
Greeley ?nd Brown.
We have advocated the Liberal move
? ment with all the warmth of earnest con?
viction from its very first inception, in
the early part of the spring, and we have
urged the acceptance of Greeley and
Brown, by the Demooratio party, from
the moment tbat the tidings of their
nomination, at Cincinnati, first reached
ns by telegraph. But we have refrained,
till cow, from hoisting their banner to
the head of our columns. This we do
to-day. Until the notion of the Balti?
more Convention, it was by no means
certain that they would remain in the
field till the close of tho race, and wo
bave, therefore, awaited that event.
Now the issue is fairly made np. The
Dem?crata have wisely and with pa?
triotic self-denial determined to combine
with the Liberal Republicans, and to
concentrate their powerful forces upon
Greeley and Gratz Brown. We, there?
fore, feel assured that they will continue
the glorious struggle they have begun
.gainst military despotism and sectional
hate, and we nail their colors to our
. mast-head, there to remain till the con?
test is over and the victory won. It
?hall be ours to do all within the scope
- of our bumble but earnest endeavors to
aid their cause, for we feel it to be just
and noble, and that upon its success de?
pends the final redemption of our own
- State and the preservation of genuine
Republican liberty to the entire oonutry.
.'?Peace and friendship with our Bister
'States of tho North, and an honest go?
vernment for poor down-trodden South
Carolina, are what we need. Self-inte?
rest and true patriotism alike demand
that we should cultivate mutual good
will between ourselves and the sections
with which we are politically associated
We see the harm which sectional ha?
tred can do, in the pandemonium which
the present Administration has made of
thia State and of other Southern States,
till their power was checked. We would
not be subjected to it again, and the
best means we see to avoid it is to accept
the hand ot conciliation and friendship
which honest Horace proffers. If he
and Gratz Brown are eleoted, we may
hope that the same relief will follow to
South Carolina which has been given to
the ox-Con redor?tes of Missouri by the
Iliberal movement, whioh was inaugu?
rated and carried to suooesaf ul comple?
tion by Gratz Brown, there, two years
ago. '.' We believe that the desire for re?
conciliation is powerful at the Nortb,
too. It oertainly must be in the hearts
of all those who fought in or favored the
iaie war, for the sake mainly of preserv?
ing the Union, and not from hatred to?
wards the South. The feeling may not
be so universal, nor quite BO strong,
there as with us, for they are enjoying
prosperity, and have not had their sec?
tional prejudices so thoroughly thumped
out of them as we have. But intelligent
people of the North cannot fail to ap?
preciate the evils which must inevitably
spring from a oontinned alienation of
the South, and we believe they will give
a strong and hearty support to the effort
What Air. Sumner Will Do.
We do not deem Mr. Sumner's support
by any means essential or necessary to
the success of the Liberal movement,
but there is no doubt that his active co?
operation might prove of vast imp?rt?
anos in some of the Southern States.
Mississippi and Louisiana are doubtful,
and South Carolina is certain, for Grant,
as matters now stand. The rest, we
believe, will all cast their electoral votes
for Greeley and Brown, with greater or
less majorities. If, however, an earnest
-canvass is made by the Liberal Republi?
cans in the three States mentioned, and
Mr. Sumner concludes to support the
movement, and will take the stump be?
f?te the colored people, there is but
little doubt of his ability to ensure Mis?
sissippi and Louisiana to Greeley, and
perhaps South Carolina, too. He will
not, and cannot, advocate the re-election
of General Grant, for of him the bitterest
Democrat in the laud has not a lower
opinion than Mr. Sumner. It romains
to be seen whether he will heartily BUS
. tain Mr. Greeley, who, we believe, has
always been his friend, and against
whom none of those glaring faults which
he has discovered and so clearly depicted
in his terrible Philippic against Grant,
ean be lodged; There is no doubt of the
devotion of the colored people to Mr.
Sumner, and of their confidence in his
judgment . They are not either ill-dis?
posed towards Mr.- Greeley, whom many
of them know to have been their friend
before General Grant was known at ali.
It is only required, in order to secure a
diversion in Greeley's favor among them,
that men whom they know to be true
Republicans shall urge his claims bofore
POLITICAL JOTTINGS.-A writer to the
Golden Age, who signs himself "A Gree
loy Republican, "asks what are Mr. Gree?
ley'a views with regard to the Confede?
rate debt, and sdds that the Radicals in
his town say that Mr. Greeley, if elooted,
would be in favor of paying it. Mr.
Tilton's answer is short and to the point:
"The fools are not all dead yet."
The Radicals very justly attach much
importance to the North Carolina elec?
tion. If Congress had given Gen. Grant
the authority he so urgently demanded,
of declaring martial law and suspending
the writ of habeas corpus in disafFeoted
districts, he and his carpet-baggers and
scalawags might have some chance of
carrying the old North State; but, as the
day of bayonet elections and bastiles is
over, they have none.
A New York Radical paper says Gree?
ley's portraits are to bs seen in all the
low grog-shops and cafes. Well, they
were not photographed on the spot, as a
certain other Presidential candidate's
might have been, if they had been
A Radical paper says Grant was the
first President to attempt civil reform;
and the Boston Post adds: "And the
first to make a sickening failure, as well."
To avoid misapprehension, it is worth
while to state that the gentlemen spoken
of in oar despatches from Baltimore as
"bolters," are simply a nnmber of disor?
ganizes, who had no position whatever
in the Baltimore Convention. They
were outsiders, and their object was to
induce the delegates to the Convention
to disregard the wishes of those who
sent them there; and failing in that, they
propose to nominate a "straight-out"
D?mocratie ticket, if they can find two
gentlemen who will accept that dubious
honor at their hands, whioh is extremely
doubtful. There was no bolting from
the Democratic Convention, and few
have been held in our history that were
It will be. difficult for Grant to seduce
the more intelligent of the colored voters
from their old friend and.patron, Horace
Greeley. In all the States, the leaders
are coming ont for the Baltimore and
Cincinnati nominees. The last notable
case that we have seen, is that of W. U.
Saunders, of Baltimore, a man of cui?
tare, an officer in the custom boose, and
a Grant oleotor. He is ont in a very
sensible letter, in whioh ho abandons the
Grant wing of the party, resigns bis
place on the eleotoral ticket, and declares
his resolution to support Greeley and

THE HEATED TEBM.-A Southern man
who has not experienced what is known
as a "heated term" in a Northern city,
has no adequate notion of what really
hot weather is. Of the late hot week,
the New York ?W?uHesays:
"The sixth day of dreadful heat has
passed, and still there is no substantial
relief. The 'local storms' which the
weather bureau predioted for the Atlantio
coast have wasted their balm npon the
sands of Jersey, or drifted ont to sea
and poured their refreshing waters into
the Atlantic. The wind which blew over
the city yesterday was as hot as tho wind
of the desert. The roofs and pavements
of suffering New York still blaze in the
angry sun. A million people pant for a
breath of cooling air. Poisonous exhala?
tions rise from the festering streets.
Gutters reek with fever-breeding
stenches. Seventy persons dropped dead
from the heat in a single day, and the
hospitals are" crowded with delirious vic?
tims. The night brings no rest, for it is
as hot as the day. From the tenement
quarters, orowds of half-dressed men
and women and ohildren hnrry, when
darkness comes on, to the parku and
open squares, and the steps and porticoes
of public buildings. In houses of the
better class, people toss all night, sleep?
less, on their heated beds, or pass the
midnight hours at their windows, long?
ing for tho cool breeze whieh never
cornea, and fretting over the oppression
whioh is never relaxed; The wretched?
ness is universal; and to hundreds, whose
occupations expose them especially to
the influen?a of the sun, such a day as
yesterday and Tuesday brings not merely
safferiag, but death."
We doubt whether any Columbian re?
members suoh a day in this oity as is
here described. The "Sunny South"
has nothing in ita experience so fiery as
EXPLOSION AND Loss OP LIFE.-By the
arrival of the steamer Pilot Boy, yester?
day, intelligence was received of a disas?
ter at the River and Marine Phosphate
Works, situated on Bull River. About 4
o'clock, on the afternoon of Thursday,
the boiler of the wash-boat exploded,
making a perfect wreck of the boat. A
colored woman, named Lydia Atkins,
whose mother lives at No. 8 Sooth Bay,
opposite Logan street, was blown into
tho river, and possibly into atoms, as
she could not be found. Several of the
hands of the boat were badly, though
not fatally, scalded. No white person
was injared.-Charleston Courier.
To THE EDITOR OF THE PUCENIX. : In the
Union, ot Friday, appeared an article
under the heading of "The Courts Cast*
ing Reflections Upon the Jury," in the
case of Josephine Myers, charged with
assanalt and battery, bringing in a ver
diot of guilty of self-defence. The
writer of this article was, unfortunately,
one of the jurors, and must state that
neither the facts of the oase, as elioited
ut the trial, nor the vocabulary of the
oounoil, inspired him to acquit the guilty
party, Josephine Myers, a black woman,
who made a murderous assault on a little
white boy,'with a brick bat, sufficiently
heavy to knock a bull down. Bnt no
donbt the public are aware that justice
in South Carolina is done gone dead.
His Honor Judge Richmond, after a fair
hearing of tho ense, and in consonant
with the dignity of bis court, appointed
Bob Cooper, colored, foreman of the
jury. Ali of Bob's element were at once
for acquittal, wbilo the two white jurors
were for giving justino its due. Neither
logia or evidence could change preju?
diced minds. The white jurors went
even so far as to recall a witness to the
jury room, to convince them of facts
which, of themselves, were BufQoient to
condemn the defendant. But, no go.
Talking about vocabulary eloquence, or
oratory, of lawyers to lead a jury, ia ull
blarney. It reminds me, sir, of a divine
who was preaching at camp meeting to a
large audience. During his disconroe
his attention was attracted to a rowdy
one of the b'hoys-who seemed to be
very muoh affected, while looking at the
preacher. After tho service the preacher
called on the prodigal son, and inquired,
"Brother, what affected thee so much in
my discourse?" Rowdy answered, "I
lost a bull purp that resembled you very
much, and while eyeing you I thought
of poor purp." It ib neither the lawyer
nor the judge who have any influence
upon the result of the verdict. It is the
purp. The purp, sir, is the centre of
attraction. 1 have endeavored to make
a suggestion, but was answered, accom?
panied by a shako of the bead and a
shrug of the shoulders, "Dis chile kuow
all 'bout jurys." Bob, the foreman,
asked me to sign his name. I told bim
my specs were not handy. Then they
concluded to bring a verdict of guilty of
self-defence. This being a poser, a
Chinese puzzle to me, I gave my white
friend the wink to let it slide, and see
how another Daniel will Bit in judgment
over this Irish bull. In conclusion, I
will quote from Josh Billings: "You
can't lick the bottom of a frying-pan
without blacking your nose." Very re?
spectfully, A WHITE JUROR.
Theodore Tilton, in the Golden Age,
of the 6th inst., says:
The Times, of this city has gravely
asserted more than onoe, that Mr. Gree?
ley has made a bargain with the Tam?
many ring, by which be is to receive its
support in the present campaign, in
consideration of favors already rendered
by the Tribune, and to be bestowed in
case of his eleotion. More than once,
the Times bas made the strongest posi?
tive assertions against individuals in this
city, and when its conductors were
brought into court, they were compelled
to confess that the charges were made
upon mere hearsay, aud without evi?
dence. The Times knows that this accu?
sation against Mr. Greeley is utterly
baseless. It does not, and cannot, ad?
duce the shadow of a proof in support of
its charge. It knows that wbrn the De?
mocrats themselves have repudiated
Tammany, it would be fatal folly and
madness in Mr. Greeley or his friend?
to enter into an arrangement with that
disgraced and defunct organization. It
knows that with all its short-comings,
the Tribune never hos favored the Tam?
many ring, nor concealed or apologized
for its crimes. But, unlike the Times, it
refused to spend all its indignation and
wrath upon tho Tammany ring, when
other rings equally corrupt and far
more dangerous were throttling ?he
National Government and preying upon
its lite-blood. The Times was sbarp
eyedto detect every peculator who, with
smallest gimblet, bored iuto tho city
treasury, but has been utterly and per?
sistently bliqd to tho plunderers whose
huge augers have riddled the treasury of
the nation-no blind that whoever knows
anything of political optics suspects
that it is afHioted with the same disease
whioh prevented the English bishop
from seeing when a guinea was held be?
fore each of his eyes. The Springfield
Republican, in commenting upon this
matter, says: "There are journals in this
country whose solemn assertion in so
grave a matter as this would have very
nearly the weight of evidenoe-would at
least create a strong presumption against
the party accused. Unhappily, the New
York Times has ceased to be of their
number. It is not a pleasant thing to
Bay of a paper of the Times' antecedents,
but it is the troth. In matters about
whioh the Republican knows as much as
the Times, and also knows that the
Times' knowledge of the facts is equal to
its own, that paper has proved itself a
REMEDY ron DIPTHERIA.-The dipthe
ria, that brings the torture of a thousand
deaths to the little ones it assails, can be
readily mastered by swabbing the back
of the mouth and throat thus: Tako
table salt, two draohms; black pepper,
golden seal, nitrate Of potash, alum, one
drachm each; mix and pulverize, pot
into a tea-cap, whioh half fill up with
boiling hot water; stir well and then fill
np with good vinegar. Use every half
hour, one, two and four honra as recove?
ry progresses. The patient may swallow
a small amount each time. Apply an
ounce each of spirits of turpentine, sweet
oil and aqua ammonia, mixed, to the
throat and to the breast bone every four
hours, keeping flaunel to the part. A
prominent New York physician says thut
in 1,000 oases where this remedy was em?
ployed, not a single patient was lost.
TBK CHARLESTON Exe H AN OK.-The
Courier says thia institution ia by no
means a slow conon, as will be Been by
the progress that has been made in its
erigin and organization. The Board of
Directors has elected Mr. Alfred Price
Superintendent of the Exohange, Mr.
Prioe is an old citizen and merchant of
Charleston, aud is eminently qualified
for tho duties of the new position to
which ho has boon called. We under?
stand that tho new Superintendent will
leave immediately for the North, on a
tour of iuspeotiou. Ho will visit the
principal exchanges in the Northern nnd
Western cities, and inform himself about
the workings aud manner of conducting
them. With u knowledge derived from
hts personal inspection, he will return,
aud open tho Clou locton Exchange upon
its completion. lu tho meantime, the
Financial Committee of the Exchango
ure not idle. A tiito has been already
procured on South Atlantic Wharf for
tho erection of an Exchange building,
and tho contractor, Mr. Walter Cade,
has already set a number of hands to
work. The now building will bo of
brick, fifty feet square, and will contain
a large hall, to bo used us an Exchange.
Et will DO adapted to all trades and busi?
nesses, und will be titted up in tim best
and most improved Btyle. The work is
already in good progress, and is expected
to be completed by the middle of Sep?
tember next. This is real go-ahead en?
terprise on the part of the gentlemen
who have inaugurated this movemeut,
and speaks well for the business energy
PARIS GOSSIP.-A Versailles letter says:
"Government has resolved that Marshal
Bazuine's trial ahull not ba postponed a
single day wheu once the maps, plans
and other documents required by the
court ure ready, which will be about a
mooth hence. Tho depositions of wit?
nesses, and the questioning of the pri?
soner himself, will be finished about the
same time. The general officer who bas
charge of what the French law calls 'the
instruction' of Bazaine, sees him for
about two hours every forenoon; the
questions put to the prisoner, aud his
replies, number already some two hun?
dred aud odd. Many of the officers who
will have to take part in the trial, either
is witnesses or employed by the court,
dave already arrived at Versailles, and
apartments of all kinds are fust rising to
tho fabulous prices that were paid for
them daring the Commune. It is curi?
ous to observe, by the way, how this
most decidedly monarchical town has ac?
commodated itself to the simplicity of
republican manners. When ~M. Thiers
goes-as he does nearly every day at pre?
sent-to the Assembly, he has no escort,
ao guard, often not even a carriage. A
little old gentleman, dressed in black,
wearing spectacles, with an overcoat
thrown over his arm, may be seen wend?
ing his way under the shade of the trees
in the Avenue de Paris, and across the
blazing bot Place d'Armes, to the Cha?
teau, leaning on the arm of a somewhat
alder and taller man, with whom he is in
jam est conversation. No one would for
a moment imagine that the shorter of the
two-hardly known by sight to many of
the persons he meets on the road-is the
Chief Magistrate of this great nation, a
man who has befora&him a task and a
work to achieve such al few have under?
taken or could undertake even in the
prime of life, and yet M. Thiers is up?
wards of seventy-four years old."
TUE REMAINS OP LOUIS PHILIPPE.
The Paris Gaulois states that the ques?
tion of the hour in Versailles is the
translation to France of tho ashes of
Louis Philippe. M. Thiers hus made
io official promise on the subject, but it
B probable that the work of removal
viii be done privately and without any
Dtiblio ceremony whatever. The Duo
1'Aumalo and the Prince de Joinville
viii soon go to Claremont, in order to
ixhumo the remains of the late King,
vhich they will then deposit at the Cha
eaa d'Eu, where the Orleans family will
ill meat. The ceremony wiil take place
n the presence of a few invited friends,
or tho public are not to be admitted,
[a England, it is said, exists a curions
luperstition upon thc subject of mortu
iry transfers of this character. The
English say that whenever a ruler aa
bonzes the return to his country of the
tody of a sovereign of the past, trouble
ollows to him who rules. The fact is,
hat the return to Franco of the ashes of
Napoleon I did not bring good luck to
HELPING THEMSELVES.-If the white
Radicals are indisposed to do for the ne?
groes what might be expected from their
profuse professions of affection for this
(lass of population, the negroes, it ap?
pears, will not be fonnd backward in
?oming forward to do for themselves. It
s the old fable of the lark and her young
mes over again. Thus, it is not sur?
mising to know that the colored Sooth
karolina Congressman Elliott has ap
join tod a negro boy to be a cadet mid
itu pm an at Annapolis, and that the other
solored members of Congress will follow
lia example. As the future will probably
iee many more negro Congressmen, so
in inorease in the members of colored
youths at West Point and Annapolis may
so anticipated as time rolls on.
THE DEAD LETTER OFFICE.-The Pos?
ai Record gives some instances of for?
getfulness and inattention that appear
?imply fatuitous and absurd. Imagine
100,000 letters sent to the Dead Letter
J Hi co last year for tho want of stamps.
3,000 letters were put into the post office
without any address whatever. And in
these letters so carelessly deposited were
fonnd checks and drafts to the amount
yt 88,000,000, and over 892,000 in oash.
Much of this sum was of course returned
to the owners, but muoh of it was also
lost irretrievably, and was doubtless the
causo of trouble, ohargos of dishonesty,
and ninny estrangements.

fortunately, however, water-drinking is

SUGGESTIONS FOB SAFETY IN THUNDER

jority of accidents arise from want of
this precaution. Do not handle or be

thunder storm, the prongs being out?

young lady, during the same storm,

centre of a room, if a metalio lustre is
not pendant, is safer than any other part

between the window and the door, or a
fire-place, where there is a current of

ye who fear, and fail to derive pleasure
mingled with awe, in beholding this,
the grandest of nature's meteors, en?
sconce yourselves within the woolen
folds, and sink down in your downy
couch, if ye cannot fall into gentle
slumber, think, at least, that you can
enjoy comparative safety.

How OLD JOHN HARPER FLANKED THE
NEW YORK SPORTS.-The New York Sun
says that when old man Harper brought
his stud of horses North, he had a white
jockey. The boy soon became intimate
with many patrons of the turf, and drank
and smoked with thom. He was a gene?
ral favorite. As soon as the old man
found out that the sports and knowing
ones knew the boy, he telegraphed for
his oolored jookey, John Sample, who
rode Longfellow at Lexington. When
the bell rang for the riders to mount,
the white boy came out. Apparently
not noticing bim, Uncle John told the
darkey to step on the scales. Finding
he weighed one pound too ranch, he
made him run round the track and sweat
the extra pound away. The experiment
was successful, and the darkey won the
race. It is said that while the white boy
is rioher by several hundred dollars,
some politicians aro of the opinion that
they threw some?money away carelessly.
They think Uncle John Harper is too
smart for the New York boys.
