COLUMBIA. S. C.
Saturday Morning, July 27, 1872.
For President of the United States,
HORACE GREELEY, of New York.
B. UH ATZ BUOWN, of Mlmoarl.
Then and Now,
. A friend banded ns, yesterday, a copy
of the old Southern Guardian, of the
date of November 16, 1860, scarcely a
month before the ordinance of secession
was passed. It is very interesting, as
showing the state of publio sentiment in
those exciting times, and which it is
very difficult for even the most reten?
tive memory to recolleot with distinct?
ness. One can scarcely appreciate, at
this time, the immense furor of indig?
nation which swept over the State like a
fire npon the prairies upon the election
of Mr. Lincoln, "the sectional Presi?
dent," who was to trample upon Sou th?
orn rights. Accounts of preliminary
meetings held in varions scutions of the
State are given, showing the undivided
voice of the people in favor of secession
os the only honorable coarse which
oould be pursued by the State, nnder
the circumstances. In those meetings,
we find the names of some of Carolina's
moat troe and gallant sons-such as
Maxoy Gregg, Frank Hampton, Keitt,
and others, who proved the sincerity of
their devotion to tho State with the sac
ri floe of their lives. Bat the secession
movement does not appear to have been
supported altogether by men of their
stamp; others played prominent parts
then, in striking contrast to their pre?
sent attitude towards the "honor and
dignity" of their State.
For instance; at a meeting in Ander?
son, endorsing the call for a State Con?
vention, wo find "Col." Orr gallantly
taking the lead in enrolling his name at
a member of a military company whose
services were to be tendered to the Go?
vernor, if necessary. At this time, it
seemed to be the general belief that se
cession would prove a peaceful remedy,
and that no "blood would ba spilt.'
Warren ND. Wilkes, a late convert tc
Radicalism, we find making a two-honi
speeoh at Belton, to "fire the Southon
heart." Ia Richland, Capt. James U
Tradewoll makes some "eloquent re
marka" before a secession meeting
Southern Independence is the patriots
heading nader which we find John Alex
ander offering his wares to the people
He it is who now "would vote for tb
devil himself, if he was the nominee o
the Radical party," which, by the way
would be quite consistent, both th
nomination and the kind of Bnpport prc
mised. In November, 1860, howevei
his Honor was playing a different role
As one of the chief attractions at hil
iron foundry, his Honor calls attentio:
in big letts rs to a lot of "South Carolin
pille" designed to work oat "Souther;
independence!" Such a whole-soule
fellow does bis Honor seem to be oboe
that timo, that the "local" deems hil
worthy of a speoial puff in regard to th
"appropriateness" of the heading of hi
advertisement- "Southern Indeper.
dence." But we must stop hen-; tb
bine pill nauseates ns. In the langnag
of Gaylord's darkey, wo are forced t
exclaim, "Oh, our stomach is gone."
Tko Herald on Conkllna's Speech,
libero was a largo Grant Rep?blica
meeting at Oooper Institute on the 28

of the occasion, making a most labore
and lengthy speech in defence of Gran'

against his politioal opponents. Th

Of Senator Co uk ling's speech, t
Herald remarks as follows:
"We regret to proaonnoe Senat
Conk lin g's speech a failure, bat we o
compelled to do so. In all that he says
about Gen. Qtant, in bis eulogies of the
President's services, in bis repudiation
of tbe falsehoods of the President's per?
sonal assailants, he will be endorsed by
the thinking portion of our people. Bat
tho eloqueooe of a United States Senator
ia not needed to tell the mor oh a uta,
bankers and solid mea of the metropolis,
that the oountry is prosperous and at
peuce; that >ther nations, as well as our
own, have showered gifts on their he?
roes; that there is a difference between
appointing a relativo to do certain duties
that must be done by somebody and
creating unnecessary places for relatives
to fill; that Greeley bas been heretofore
an opponent of the D?mocratie party,
and is a very eocentrio and unreliable
politician. On all these matters, oar
oitizens have their own views, and their
opinions aro probably quite as intelli?
gent UH those of Senator Conkling him?
self. What the people of New York
want to know is, whether Grant is now
prepared to repudiate tho acta of the
Radical politicians in Congress, who
have been playing a dangerous and des?
perate game with the South, in order to
make sore of carrying the Suuthern
States for their own candidates, and
whether he is willing, if ru -elected to the
Presidency, to reform the foreign policy
of the Administration, to do justice to
the white oitizens of tho South, and to
carryon the National Government within
constitutional limits. It is to bo hoped
that the Republicans will before long
hold another meeting in this oity, and
that the speakers will take a more com?
prehensive and statesmanlike view of the
real issues involved in the present strug?
gle than has been taken by Senator
Conkling. Gen. Grant is still loved and
honored by the people, and especially by
the loyal citizens of New York, who have
so important a Btake in the honor and
welfare of the nation. But the small
politicians and selfish advisers by whom
he is surrounded are mistrusted by the
country, and must be repudiated by the
President, if he would strengthen his
cause and remove all doubt of his sue
oesa. There may be good reasons why
Senator Conkling chose to ignore these j
facta, bat they mutti be boldly met; and
it is to be hoped that the next speakers
who address a New York audience on the
Republican side will be prepared to let
oar citizens know whether the re-elec?
tion of Gen. Grant is to be the retention
in power of his present advisers and the
perpetuation of a policy of oppression
and tyranny towards the white citizens
of the Southern States."
Mn. EDITOR: The following quotation
from a New York correspondent is
worthy of consideration, and should
causo the friends of the Liberal Repub?
lican movement in the Counties border?
ing upon the State of North Carolina to
take immediate action to prevent the
iniquitous fraud being practiced which
we have reason to believe is contem?
plated in each of the States mentioned.
The correspondent says:
"If a fair as well as full vote co lld be
polled, there would be no doubt of the
eleotion of the Democratic State ticket;
but the trouble is that the Radical Go?
vernor has the power to appoint registers
and officers of the polls, (and he will not
hesitate to take every advantage of it )
and that thousands of negroes can be
ran over the line from Virginia, Tennes
?nn nnd Smith Carolina, and votnd nd
libitum. South Carolinians living on the
Northern border might assist our cause
by devoting the day cf the North Caro?
lina election, Thursday, August 1, 'to
patroling the lines and detecting the at?
tempts cf the Radicals to colonize voters
in North Carolina."
Such a doty, quietly and judiciously
performed, woold receive the well done 1
of every honest citizen, and of the mil
liouH of votera who intend to eleot Gree?
ley and Brown io November next by the
honest and un bought suffrages of the

GREENVILLE, 8. C., July 2G, 1872.
About 2 o'clock, this morning, a fire
broke out in tho residence of Mr. Wm.
H. Cammer, in the extreme Southern
part of the city-a mile from the Court
Honse. The family consisted of Mr.
Gammer, wife and child, and his mother.
The fire had made great headway, when
the family were aroused by the heat and
suffocation, and bad barely time to savo
their lives. The house and nearly all
its contents, including all tho family
clothing, together with all the out?
buildings, were entirely consumed.
There was no insurance. The fire is
supposed to be accidental-having
originated from a stove-pipe or flue.
The loss is very serious.
Capt. J. Wesley Brooks, a well-known
aitizen, died, yesterday morning, at his
residence, whore Mr. Cammer and

EDITOR DAILY PIKEN IX : As a matter of
news, I will mention that there was a
yoong gentleman who came with os from
Columbia, this morning, who was ener?
getically distributing speeches of Trea?
surer Parker at every station on the
road. He i ven bad the temerity to offer
copies of tho speech to well known De?
mocrats on the train. He stated that he
was only obliging a friend by distribut?
ing these documents, bat knowing oaes
strongly suspect that Parker is again in
the field for the Treasurer's birth, and is
leaving no pains spared to let his colored
brethren know his candidacy. The
speech ia well written, and is calculated
to deoeive the unwary. Gr?ps look fine,
and we found delicious peaches at nearly
Bvnry station. Moro anon.
POLITICAL DOTTINQ3.-There was a
Radical Republican rally at the Cooper

There were 230 Vice-Pr?sidents and 61
Secretaries. Roscoe Conkling was the
only speaker, and his address occupies
eighteen columns ol the New York Times.
Senator Sherman's speooh at ^Mans?
field, Ohio, recently, contains a new ar?
gument against tho eleotiou of Mr. Gree?
ley. He claims that Mr. Greeley cannot
sign a free trade bill if Congress should
happen to pass one, as his coustitutioual
oath would require him to voto the bill
as oontrary to his judgment. That is to
say, his official oath would require him
to carry out his own convictions, what?

BRUTAL MURDER BY NEGROES.-Upo:
last Friday night, a tragedy, more hot
rible in its details than ever occurred ii
this vicinity, was enacted at Howe
Station, ia Rankin County, seven mile
East of this place. The details, as w
learn them, are as follows: After dark
upon the night above named, as the ne
groes belonging to the Howell Statio
(Vicksburg und Meridian Railroad) sec
tion gang wore loafing around the depc
at that place, there came to the crow
an ag.ul colored man, who bad reoentl

plantations, but was then idle, and es
pressed himself as looking for work. I

The cry was raised by the negroes, "h
is a voodoo conjurer; search bin
search him," which was no sooner sai
than done. They found a few harmlei
herbs and roots in the old man's pocket
which confirmed their suspicions, an
they took thin old man of eighty yean
tied him bard and fast to the railroa
track, and began beating him. "Ki
bimi kill him!" cried the infernal crowe
and the huh came harder and faster; h
screamed with agony, and making a lot
desperate effort, writhed himself almoi
out of the bonds and into a fire of pin
knots lying by tho track, but that effoi
was his last, for the fire barned his shii
and scorched his skin, and he made n
noise. "Seel he is a ooDjarer," the
said, and again the lash came dowi
they continued this for some time long?
and left him. Tho next morning, h
was found twenty yards from tho traci
stone dead. Whether he was able t
drag himself to the spot or was dragge
there by his murderers is not knowi
but the. pr?somption is the latter. TL
murderers have been arrested and ooi
fined in jail at Brandon.

Mr. Oreclry*? Letter of Acceptance.
The following ia Mr. Greeley's letter,
accepting the Baltimore nomination, in
reply to the letter of tbe committee ap?
pointed to notify him thereof:
NEW TOME, Joly 18, 1872.
GENTLEMEN: Upon mature delibera?
tion, it seems flt that I Bhould givo your
letter, of the loth instant, some further
and fuller response than the hasty unpre?
meditated words in which I acknow?
ledged and accepted your nomination at
our meeting on the 12th inst.
That your Convention Baw flt to accord
its highest honor to one who had been
prominently and pointedly opposed to
your party iu the earnest and sometimes
angry controversies of the last forty
years is essentially noteworthy. That
many of you Liberal Republicans should
present another candidate for President,
and would more rapidly havo united with
us in the support of Adams or Trumbull,
Davis or Brown, ie well known. I owe
my adoption nt Baltimore wholly to the
fact that I bad already boou nominated
at Cincinnati, and that a concentration
of forces upon any new mau had been
proved impracticable. Gratified as I am
ut your concurrence in the Cincinnati
nomination, aud certain asl am that yon
would not have thus concurred had you
not deemed mo upright and capable, I
found nothing in tho circumstanced cal?
culated to inflame vanity or uouri.sh telf
conceit. But that your Convention saw
lit to reaffirm tho Cincinnati platform is
to mo a source of the profoundest satis?
faction. That body was constrained to
take this step by no party necessity, real
or supposed. It might have accepted
the candidates of tho Liberal Republi?
cans upon grounds entirely its own, or it
might have presented them as thu li ra t
Whig Convention did Harrison and
Tyler, without adopting uuy platform
That it chose to plant itself deliberate?
ly, by a vote nearly unanimous, upon
the fullest and clearest enunciation of
principles which are ut once incontesta?
bly Republican and emphatically Demo?
cratic, gives trustworthy ussurunco thut
u new and more auspicious era is dawn?
ing upon our long-distracted country,
.dome of tho best years and best efforts
of my life were devoted to u struggle
against chattel slavery, a struggle none
the less earnest and arduous because re?
spect for constitutional objections con?
strained me to act for the most part on
the defensive iu resistance to tho diflu
Bion, rather than in direct efforts for the
extinction, of human boudage. Through?
out most of these years, my vision was
uucheored, my exertions were rarely
animated by even so much as a hope that
I should live to see my country peopled
by freedmen alone. Tho affirmation by
your Convention of the Cincinnati plat?
form is a most conclusivo proof that not
merely is slavery abolished, but that
its spirit is extiuct; that despite the pro?
tests of a respectable, but isolated, few,
there remains among us uo party and nu
formidable interest which regrets the
overthrow or desires the re establish?
ment of human boudage, whether in let?
ter or in spirit. I am tboreby justified
in my hope and trust that the flrjt cen?
tury of American independence will nol

The votes of Now England thus de

our late contest, was, like Yance, a rebel
and a fighting rebel, but had not servei
in Congress before the war, as Vane
had, though the latter remained faith fi
to the Union till after the dose of bi
term. I protest against the disfranchise
meut of a State, presumptively of a nun:
ber of States, on ground so narrow an
technical as this. The fact that the sam
Senate which refused his seat prooeede
to remove his disabilities after that sea
had been filled by another, only serve
to'place iu a stronger light the indignit
to North Carolina, and the arbitrary, oe
prioious tyranny whioh dictated it.
I thank you, gentlemen, that my nam
is to be conspicuously associated wit
yours in a determined effort to ronde
amnesty complete and universal iu spir
aa well as in letter. Even defeat in BU ob

umph would rank with thoae viotorieB
which no blood reddens, and which evoke
no tears but those of gratitude and joy.
Gentlemen, your platform, whioh is also
mine, assures me that democracy is not
henceforth to stand for one thing and
republicanism for another; bat these
terms are to mean in politics, as they al?
ways meant in the dictionary, substan?
tially une and the same thing, namely,
equal rights, regardless of creed, or
clime, or color. I hail this as a genuine
new departure from ont-worn feuds and
meaningless contentions in the direction
of progress and reform. *
Whether I shall bu found worthy to
bear the standard of the great Liberal
movement, whioh the American people
have inaugurated, is to be determined
not by words, but deeds-with me, if I
steadily advance; over me, if I falter.

NERAL ORDERS TO BB SUBMITTED FOR THE
ANTIQUATED, EXPENSIVE AND VEXATIOUS
MACHINERY OP REPUBLICAN GOVERN?
MENT.-A Thayer County correspondent
of the Liucoln (Neb.) Statesman, thus
foreshadows Graut's policy, if re-elected:
Gen. Grant bas appointed only a little
more than half of his numerous relatives
to office. He proposes to commence the
uext term by appointing them all. Se?
condly, he has uotually appointed some
to office, who have not paid him any?
thing for it. The next term he will re?
ceive pay for every office, according to
its peculiar value. For tho highest ba
will reobive fertile farms and palatial resi?
dences, and for tho lowest the considera?
tion will range all the way from fanoy
horses to bull pups. Thirdly, he went
through tho farce of assembling a con?
vention of office-holders expressly to
uotninatti him; he proposes to dispense
with the convention next time by issuing
the following order: "I, Gen. Grant, by
virtue of the powers in me vested over
the Constitution, as Commander-in-Chief
of the urmy and navy of the United
States, do nominate myself as the sole
candidate for President of the United
Stutes for the ensuing term."

authority to compile an administration
history and to scatter the Government
archives to the four corners of the earth.
G. Tho offices of Admiral and Secretary
of the Navy are hereby dispensed with,
and Brigadier-General Babcock will

ment, with the sole instruction to crawl
to the big governments and insult the
little ones, especially if they be of the
"cullud" persuasion, to the end that the
honor of thc Government may be pre?
served, aud that we may "have peace."
7. The various other offices will be

are adopted in the interest of retrench?
ment and reform. The money expended
iu holding conventions and ?lections,
