For President of (he Untied Stales.
HORACE: ORBELET, of Nt tv York.
B. O RATZ BilOWN, or lUlsxoun.
I Shall Wo Do Nothing*
f Nearly every State in the Uniou has
her Presidential electors in the field, and
the rest have their local clubs aud organi?
zations formed and a time fixed for the
assembling of a State convention at an
early day. South Carolina, we believe, -
is absolutely the only State in the Union
where no steps have beeu taken by tho
people to inaugurate a campaign in favor
of the Liberal Republican and Demo?
cratic nominees, Greeley and Brown.
Our white people are unanimously in
their fuvor. This is evident. Then,
why our strange supineness? Ono rea?
son, undoubtedly, is that we BOO no pros?
pect at present of carrying the State.
The negroes aro the slaves of their poli?
tical leaders, and their leaders are the
tools of Grant. Surely, though, it is
not the despair of sucoees alone which
oauses the apathy of the white oitizens
of South Carolina. We are not less
. courageous nor more deaf to the call of
duty than are the people of Massachu?
setts. South Carolinians will never ad?
mit or believe that, and yet we find the
Detnoorats and Liberal Republicans of
Massachusetts entering earnestly into
the canvass, although the majority for
.Grant there, in 1868, was three times
-'thut of South Carolina.
?Phoy have as little hope of oarrying
their State ja this election for Greeley
and Brown as we have for carrying our
own. We cannot believe, therefore, that
despondency alone causes our inaction
and our disinclination to act. There are
other reasons, the ohief of whioh, in our
judgment, is an- unwillingness on the
part of the largo majority of the white
people of the State to revive the Demo?
cratic party. Political parties are the
.mero agents or means by whioh people
hope to attain certain desirable ends in
government. When a party loses its
power as an agency of good, it is utterly
useless, aud wise men drop it and seek
to make other combinations whioh pro?
duise more practical reBults. Suoh is the
present condition of the Democratic
party in South Carolina, or rather the
.name of it, for we think it oan scarcely
be longer said to exist. It shows no life,
nt any rate.
We believe it to be a sife political
axiom, that the best attainable govern?
ment is that ?o whioh sensible and up?
right citizens should direot their efforts.
Gool government in South Carolina, if
it is possible at all as the State is now
constituted, must bo looked for in a
combination between tho good citizens
of the white and the black or colored
races. This, we take it, is a self-evident
proposition. Where, then, can common
ground be found upon whioh both races
could and would stand? Not in. Demo?
cracy, certainly. The Democratic party
hai> opposod, stop by stop, the freedom
- - and the further political and civil equal?
ity of the negro. The reasons of this
opposition, however just and logical,
. amount to uotbing when addressed to
thu negroes. They see nothing bat an
enemy iu Domooruoy, and so seeing, it
ii very natural that they should studious?
ly avoid it.
Oo the other hand, thu white people
eee nothing but au enemy iu Grant, an
incompetent, tyrannical, avaricious, self
seeking ruler, dangerous to the liberties
of the republic and damnably expensive
withal. They cannot, therefore, com?
bine with thu colored people in a com?
mon support of Grant. Nor are they
willing-and God grant they may never
be-to ally themselves with any party
whioh has for its leaders a lot of thieves
and dissolute characters. No man oi
proper self-respeot and regard for a good
name will contaminate himself with snob
association. Where, then, can we turn:
The answer is evident-to that party
whese principles both blaok and white
?an endorse, and of whoso distinguished
leaders the most virtuous need not be
ashamed-the Liberal Republican party,
whioh was organized at Cincinnati. We
are not sanguino that the oolored people
will come over in any noticeable num?
bers to the Liberal Republican party in
this Presidential campaign. Bat we do
holievo that it will eventually be (he
party of the State, and the instrument
by which carpot-bog mis-rale is to be
We disfavored any demonstration
whatever on the part of tho white peo?
ple outil the Radical Convention had
met and split, as we hoped and believed
it would do. There is now no longer
any reason why we should longer remain
idle in the Presidential canvass, and ic
th? organization of that party by which
only we oan hope to rescue our State
-from the olutohes of the "stranger and
spoiler.'* Our cotemporary, the Charles?
ton Hews, need entertain no fears that
we have dosigus upon ."local reform."
We havo much greater hopo of improve?
ment froth, the split in the Republican
ranks than even our apprehensive neigh?
bor, for where his dainty palate distin?
guishes only between "bilod orow and
buzzard" in the tickets that .bsse been
presented, we are comforted in the
belief Ithat yq6 ha]?e ?a,choice of hon eat
man and thiaX .
The ?Ui ci lon in Alaine.
The first State election of any impor?
tance UH indicating the probable result
of tho Presidential race takes place in
Maine, on the 9th instant-to-morrow
week. The Administration party is pat?
ting forth every ezertiou to Bustain
itself. Scores of tho ablest Radical
speakers havo been canvassing the State,
and money, it is charged, is being used
in abundance, as waB done iu North
Carolina. The Liberals and Democrats,
too, have not been idle, aud have been
pushing the canvass vigorously. Trum?
bull, Banks and other prominent Libe?
ral Republicans are stumping the State,
and the numbers who attend and the
genuino enthusiasm which pervades
their meetings, shows that the desire for
reconciliation and reform has reaohed
even bleak and distant Maine. We do
not enpposo that there is scaroely a
ohanoe that the State can be rescued en-?
tirely from the Grantites. The wonder
is that they show so muoh uneasiness
about it, when we remember that the
Radicals carried it in 1668 by a sweep?
ing majority of 20,000. The most, we
presume, that the Liberal ?j Republicans
and Dem?crata can hope' for in Maine is
a reduotion in the Radioal majorities.
If a great advance can be made in such
a Radical stronghold, it is ? reasonable to
hold that the doubtful States, which
will decide the election, will oaat their
vote for Greeley and Brown. It is thin
which makes tho eleotion in Maine inte?
JUST THE DIFFERENCE.-Virginia,
under" Democratic rule,,bas established
over 700.schools for the colored man;
while South Carolina, under Radical
rule, bas not only done nothing for
them, but nthe- Radical- State;- Govern?
ment haB stolen all tho school money
andi broken down the negro sch o ol H
already established. The two State Go?
vernments fairly illustrate tho policy and
practice between the two parties.
, m* i---.'.
QAs BLACK AS THE AUDIENCE.-A Beau?
fort County (South Carolina) scalawag,
in addressing a orowd of negroes a few
days since, remarked, "My friends and
fellow-citizous, my skin is white, but my
heart is as blaok as this audience!" The
intelligent orator probably meant that
his eympathies were with the blacks, but
he couldn't have told the truth b etter
than he did. Murder will out.
THE HERALD'S TROUBLES WITH STAN?
LEY.-The New York Herald thought it
had silenced all the doubters wheu .it.
printed n jhtbogruphed^ac-simiJe of what
was said' to be Dr. Livingstone's lotter to
Mr. Bennett; but unfortunately this was
the unluckiest thiug it could have done.
Por now comet? tho! Sun, and Bide by side
with tho Herald's copy, places a fae
simile of one of Stanley's letters, und,
behpldI tho penmanship of, the two is
very similar; not exactly so, bot suffi?
ciently alike to lead to tbe supposition
that tho same band held tbe pen that
traced both letters. A correspondent of
the World gives color to the suspicion by
notiug that in the letter purporting to
be from Livingstone, the address is
James Gordon Bennett, Esq., Jr., and
recalling that ut the time of the date of
the letter, it could not have been known
in Africa that the elder Mr. Bennett was
dead, deduces the cooolusion that the
i "Jr." was written after Stanley had re?
turned to civilization. This would be an
argument in favor of the letter, were it
j not that the "Jr." is in the same hand
I writing as the body of the document,
and whoever wrote that word wrote, or
oould have written, the whole letter. It
was physically impossible that Dr. Li?
vingstone oould have added that word
after Mr. Bennett's death; and altogether
it seems that tho doubters havo tho best
of the argument so far.
AN OBJECT OF CHARITY.-SomeJ time
daring Thursday night, a white female
infant, large, healthy and neatly dressed,
was left in a basket on the gate step of
the Convent of the Sisters of Meroy, in
Queen street. Near morning a passing
policeman, attracted by its cries, carried
it to the main guard house, where its
bright eyes and dimpled oheeks excited
the admiration of the brawny clubs and
stars. Attached to its dress was a note,
giving at its name "Imoline Hope," and
requesting tho Sisters to caro for it, as?
suring them that it will be reclaimed at
some fntnre day. Yesterday morning
the Mayor notified the Sistorn of the
circumstance, and two of them went
down to the gaard house immediately
and took charge of their unsolicited

SINGULAR DEATH.-Mr. George Beck,
living near Dunbarton, in this County,
concluded, a few days ago, to have his
well deaned out. On Saturday, with
the assistance of his brother, he proceed?
ed to that daty, when a very offensive
odor was observed issuing from tho bot?
tom of the well. Ho came out, and col?

in tho well and set it on fire, hoping to
destroy the disagreeable smell; and on
the following Tuesday re-entered, for
the purpose of examining what progress
he oould make? bnt found, after proceed?
ing bat a short distance, that it was very
difficult for him to breathe freely. He
immediately came out, but in a short
time entered again, and prooeodod bat a
short distance, when he fell a lifeless
corpse. Mr. Beck's father and several
others, soon arrived, when one of the
party persisted in going down for the
dead man, but was prevented by the
others, and the unfortunate mau was
taken out by ropes. A fowl was tied to a
rope und let down iuto the well, and bo

A FAMILY DESTROYED BY SMALL Pox.
From Yorkville, comes one of the sad?
dest stories of the small-pox we have yet
boen called upon to record. About two
weeks since, this dreadful disease got
into a family named Koch, consisting of
father, mother and five children. On
last Wednesday, the first child died, on
Thursday a second, on Friday a third,
and on Saturday a fourth. The mother
and fifth child are now confined to their
beds with the disenso, with tho chances
against them. The father has thus far
esoaped. Not one of the family woe
vaccinated, and the father is said to be
opposed to the oporation.

however strong, have a weak spot, like
the rhinoceros, whioh, though plated
like a monitor, is vulnerable to a spear
thrust below the places. Satan is not
such a fool as to attack the strong de?
fences;' be would be sure to thrust at the
vulnerable points. Some, indeed, think
they have no weak place; and such peo?
ple are right, foe.they are weak all over,
and no part, therefore, could be called
weak in particular. The polar bear has
a weakness, whioh is for blubber, and his
hunters knowing this, coil a piece of
whale bone like a watch spring, wrap it
in blubber and freeze it. They then
drop the tempting morsel in the way of
a bear, who swallows greedily; but as
soon as the blubber, melts in his sto?
mach, the whalebone springs ont. The
near then rolls over in agony, aud they
come up and kill him. Thus it is when
men yield to an easy sin, it will cut
them asunder.-Dr. H. M. Scudder.

SUPPRESSING ORSOENE PUBLICATIONS.
A New York letter says: "The United
States authorities continuo their raid
upon the dealers in immoral literature.
This morning, one E. N. Grandin, who
keeps a pince at 41 Liberty street, was
taken into custody, charged with using
the mails for distributing books and prints
of the description alluded to. Commis?
sioner Osborne held him to bait in the
sum of $10,000. We have had raids of this
kind before by tho dty police, but they
never did muon good. Now that Uncle
Sam has taken hold of the matter, how?
ever, we may look for better results."
RESTORED.-Mrs. Stylos, wife of the
proprietor of the Metropolitan Hotel, at
Long Branch, whose mysterious disap?
pearance was noticed some dava ago, was
overcome by beat, it seems, and was

lovers, of California, who wished to re?
turn to the Occidental land but couldn't,
took poison and died in each other's
