For Pr?sidant of the United States.
HORACE (JIHBBLET. of NIH York.
?. GRATZ BIIOWJ?, of Itlluoarl.
The Republican State Nominating
Convention meets in thia city to-morrow,
for the purpose of selecting candidates
for general State officers nnd for Con
gress from the State at large. As to the
in eui be. rd of Cougrees, the white people
of tho Stute feel but little interest. It is
not, iudeed, very agreeable to feel that
South Carolina is represented in the
General Government by disreputable
characters, or by mun distinguished for
their ignorance and stupidity, as some
of our membera of Congress from South
Carolina have been. But the South
Carolina delegation to Congress form
but u very insignificant portion of that
body, end can effect no great harm, how?
ever corrupt or ovil-dispoaed they may
be. The State Government is quite nn
.other matter. It affects directly every
interest and uvery citizen in the State.
Accordingly, as it is wisely or un?
wisely, honestly or corruptly, fairly
or unjustly, administered, will result
the welfare or the ruin of the State.
In the State election, therefore, the
"white people are deeply concerned.
?For ?iis reason, und inasmuch as it has
- been very generally agreed that the
whites will place no opposition candi?
dates in the field, but will support the
Republican nominees, provided only
Ahey be honest and capable men, we
? ahaH rpre.sumo to give a word of advice
. tovtbe Convention. A large majority of
tf&6 delegates will be colored men. To
them, and to such white delegates, if any
there be, who are really Republicans,
and have a sincere desire to serve their
country, we would speak.
The Government of Booth Carolina
'Stands to-day "a disgraos to civilization"
and a monument of shame to the Re?
publican party. The important inquiry
ia, who is to blame for this state of af?
fairs? Wo do not cure to seek for the
grand primary cause, which will be
found in the policy of hate pursued by
the Administration at Washington to?
ward the South since the war.
But, as matters now stand, who are re?
sponsible for the corruption and profli?
gacy of our State administration? and
who are they who have raised the gaunt
spectre of ruin which now stands staring
ns in the face? Are Scott and Parker
and the financial ring the monsters who
have perpetrated such foul wrongs? Are
Moses and the corrupt Legislature, and
the other bribe-taking officials, tho causes
of the humiliation which is upon ns and
the grave perils that environ us? Un?
doubtedly they are, to a great extent.
Without them, or auch bad men as they
are, the present state of things could not
exist. They are immediately chargeable
with the immense fraudulent debt which
has been heaped upon the State, the cor?
rupt measures which have passed the
Legislature, the ruinous rates of taxa?
tion, the general squandering of the
public moneys, the want of publio
schools, the sufferings of the lunatic
asylum, and all the woes, that now beset.
But who are responsible for these men,
who form the power behind tho throne?
By what instrumentality have these dis?
reputable and dishonest men been placed
in positions of power and trust? All the
white Radicals in the State, if clubbed
together, are not sufficient in numbers
to elect even a commissioner of any
County in the State of average popula?
The colored people make tho Govern?
ment of South Carolina. Their suf?
frages, and their suffrages alone, dolor
mine into whose hands the dearest inte?
rests of themselves and of their white
iellow-citizons shall be placed. They
have an overwhelming majority in
the popular vote of the State.
As they decide, so shall things be.
Uneducated and inexperienced, it was
not very surprising nor severely to be
reprehended that they made grave mis?
takes in their first attempts to exeroise
the moral Privileges of freemen and citi?
zens. Bot they cannot from this time i
forward plead inexperience. For four
years, they have had control of the Stats. ,
Two years ago, despite the moat ear
eeet efforts of the white people to bring
.boat a change, the colored people again
elected the very same orew of swindlers
?nd jobbers aa had been despoiling and
plundering the State for the two years
Now another eleotion is about to take
place, and it remains to be seen whether
?the colored people will a second time
.endorse and sanction the villainies of
the present regime. It they do, they
will prove themselves totally unfit to
govern themselves, and certainly ill pre?
pared to tamper with tho rights and
libertina ef the Anglo-Saxon taco. If
they oan establish and maintain good,
honest and efficient government, they at
once vindicate a just claim to perfect
oivil and political (quality with their
fellow-citizens of the white ruce. If they
cannot, bot, on the .contrary, saddle
upon tho State, from year to year, a
pack of thievish adventurers, whose ouly
thought is how to ruiso monoy, and only
object to pocket it, they will then con
viuco even their warmest friends that
their enfranchisement was a grievous
error, if not a foul wrong.
The white poople of tho State stand
ready, willing and anxious to co-operate
with the colored 'citizens to oorreot the
crying abuses iu our midst, uud lo effect
the ends of good government. They
will support any decent uud honest tickot
the colorod people will select. They aro
waiting to eeo if that opportunity will
be afforded them.

Not being willing yet to retire to the
abade? of private life, Hon. George H.
Williams, Grant's Attorney-General, is
playing his ot*rds for an election to the
United States Senate. A provident old
gentleman 1 Grant will not be in need
of an Attorney-General next year, and
Greeley will not require Mr. Williams*
services in that capacity.

Parker, near the line of Kershaw and

war. If so, with him it means spoons.
A Word of Warning.
Mr. Greeley showell himself to bo far
moro wise than a good many of. his most
ardent supporters, when, in his letter of
acceptance addressed to tho Demooratic
Committee, he hiuted that one of the
leuding causes of complaint, out of
which the Liberal movement grew, was
the general consciousness pervading the
people that 'hero should be a cessation
of exclusive legislation for tho black
mau, and moro oare given to the larger
interests of the white mau. Mutatis mu?
tandis, the same thiug may bo said of thu
conduct of the present campaign, whore
so much eff jrt is made to secura the ?II
oporatiou of tho uegro and tho negro'?
friend, that there begin.-) to bo danger
lest tho white mun should bu overlooked,
and some of his support lost, iu couse
qnonce. Mr. Sumuer'j lett rs wore
manly, generous, opportune, und they
will doubtless help tho cause of Liberal?
ism both in tho North and the South.
Saunders is a clover speaker, ?iud does
uot lack either tact ur modesty, lint
Mr. Sumner showed whut ho feared con?
cerning his in tinonee with his proteges tiy
tho date of his lotter, and Saunders
well, Saunders did not set Halifax Cou uty
on Uro. The fact of the business is, the
Liburul party is a heterogeneous one,
aud to succeed, munt divide the labors of
its champions. Thu negro voto, tho
Germuu vote, the Irish voie, the Repub?
lican vote, tho Democratic vote, all dud
iu tho Liberal candidate aud platform a
broad point d'appui, upou which they
oau unite their tomes to save the repub?
lic and restore houest govern ment. Rut
lot Mr. Sumner and Mr. Saunders aud
others give the negroes good reasons
why they should support Greeley; let
Mr. Schurz aud Mr. Ottendorfer con?
vince the Germans in tho same way; let
Republicans fetch over Republicans, aud
Democrats reusoti with Democrats. Any
other policy will be fatal. Any attempt
to assume thut th? supporters of Mr.
Greeley, because they have uuited for a
pomrnon object, huve suddenly grown to
be a homogeneous now party, will bu the
height of absurdity. As Mr. Jere. Black
showed in his admirablo letter the other
day, Democrats have grounds for sup?
porting Mr. Greeley, which at e entirely
outside and independent of the fact that
he has been a Republican and a negro
philist. Those who ask Democrats to
go for Mr. Greeley upon the same
grounds that Sumner asks the negroes ta
go for him, huve no oonceptiou of the
real issue, or aro double-dealers.
There is danger in this matter, or wt
would not allude to it, uud it is a daugei
which tho shrewd aud unscrupulous
managers for Grant long ago scented oui
and ure trying to profit by. lu poiut ol
fact, the Oran ti tea in the South, as soot
as they found that Sumuer and Greeley
were likely to go away from them, begat
to hedge on the Southern negro vote.
Neither Grant uor his friends have
any fondness for the negro, nor couti
dence in him. They know that then
are three white votes in the South foi
one negro vote, and thoy have been try
ing for yeurs to swap off one for tin
other. Tnat is the secret of the pitifu
huckstering of the Administration will

Louisiana Democrats had no oonlidenc

cause the Southern Democrats will ha?
no dealings with Grant.
But we mu?t be very careful in ou
attempts at bringing over the Souther

Southern white man into disgusted inai

THE BRITISH. CLAIMS AGAINST US -
Though considerable attention has been
given to thu HU bj ec t iu a few papers, it
may be doubted if thu people of the
United States havo uny conception of
the magnitude of what aro technically
known as tho "counter claims." It will
be remembered that a "mixed commis?
sion" to adjudicate upon the British
claims against ne wa? created by the
treaty of Washington. According to
semi-ollicial report, -170 cases, at least,
have beeu docketed for adjudication by
this commission. Many of them have
grown oat of condemnations under our
prizo laws during the rebellion. A well
informed Washington correspondent es?
timates that these British claims will
average $250,000 euch-iu other words,
that thc counter claims will foot tip iu
round numbers $117,500.000. Reduc?
ing this averages to $100,000, below which
it can hardly be, the aggregate amotiul
which wo would be compelled to pny to
English subjects would amount to $17,
000,000. Deduct say $7,000,000 to bo
received from the "Alabama claims,"
and wo find that the much-lauded treaty
of Washington will cost thc United
States $10,000,000 for this claim business
alone. Wc say the treuty of Washing?
ton, because- it was only by abandoning
our old theory ns to neutrals and belli?
gerents iu obedience to its dictation that
wc hare rendered ourselves hubie for
this enormous sum. This blundering
treaty business ?H very likely to cost our
people a nico round sum, iu addition to
the disgrace already incurred, first by
Grant's idiotic attempt to make political
capital out of Bancroft Davis' nonsensi?
cal "Gettysburg" claims, nod then by
Grant's wretched truckling to the Go?
vernment of Mr. Gladstone when his
attempt was foiled.-New York World.

RADICAL DOINGS IN MARION.-A cor

Last night our quiet and pretty town
was temporarily made a very pandemo?
nium with tho yells of a crowd engaged
in au orgio, called u Graut aud Wilson
ratification meeting. Mr. PurviH, of Co?
lumbia, spoke well, and there was a
tinge of conservatism in his speech. Ile
praised Mr. Greeley UH one of the chiefest
of thu founders ot tho party which in?
augurated and fought to a successful
Liane the movement, tor abolishing sluva
ry, und which fiually made those who
wero in bondage fie? men in every sense
of the word. Ho only claimed tho sngo
had fallen in with some exceedingly bud
company. He urged reform itt the State
as un imperative necessity.
After this speech, Senator H. E. Blayne
rose and iudulged in a long, rambling
und inflammatory harangue. Whenever
lie was at. a loss for au idea, lie mounted
the Ku Klux hobby aud rode bim vio?
lently. He tried to wax eloquent, but
Tailed to excite any feeling but indigna?
tion lind pity. He slandered our citizens
by asserting I bat Ihe only reusou wo hud
no Ku Klux iu rbis County was because
there was no "man bravo enough to load
them!" He bragged about what he would
have doue bad Ku Klux attempted to
harm lum; how he wanted no soldiers,
but would have called some of his gal?
lant boys together, aud ba vu used gun?
powder and "lightwood!" After these
incendiary remarks, he, too, proclaimed
thu necessity for reform, ami denounced
tho doings of the Columbia ring. He
did ami said everything he could dream
of which would antagonize tho ruoes,
aud demauded that party lines be strict?
ly drawn. No vote must bo given to any
but a true uud tried Republican. By
the way, iu passing, he advised the ne?
groes not to trade their niouey with the
Jews. He said the Jews would promise
to vote for their party, and would every
time deceivo them. In speaking of
Greeley, ho paid his hearers the doubt?
ful compliment of saying they did not
know whether Greeley was tho devil r?r

THE CHENEY DIFFICULTIES.-The latest
legal proceedings growing out of the
difficulties between the RJV. Mr. Che?
ney, of Chicago, uud his ecclesiastical
superiors, iu consequence of bis omis?
sion of the word "regenerate" from the
baptismal office of the church, have ter?
minated in favor of Mr. Cheney. Three
members of his parish had brought au
action against Mr. Cheney and the ward?
ens uud vestrymeu, asking from the
Circuit Court au injunction to restrain
Mr. Cheney from officiating as minister
of Christ Church, aud the wardens and
vestrymen from applying tho property
and revenues of the church to his use
uud support. Tin-injunction prayed for
the court has refused, on the ground
that the petitioners only represented a
small minority of tho members of the
church, and that a separation nf tho
[juster from the flock would be consider?
ed by the groat majority of the parish
very disastrous, both pecuniarily and
spiritually. lu rendering tho decision of
tho court, Judge Williams said that it
must be borne in mind that the ecclesi?
astical rights of a church or parish are
distinct from its pecuniary rights, and it
is ouly with its pecuniary rights that
courts of equity in this country inter?
fere, although iu Eugland chancellors
have gone further, aud in connection
with rights of property have investi?
gated aud determiued difficult theologi?
cal questions. But in England the
church and State are not only connected,
but the Lord Chancellor, the highest
equity judge, is also one of the highest
church dignitaries, and the dispenser, to
u largo extent, of the church patronage.
Therefore, the principles promulgated
