Wednesday Morning, Sept. ll, 1872,
For President of the United States.

O. GRATZ DROWN, of Missouri.
Give (ho People Light.
We have entertained the belief that
Judge Orr and the members of the Re?
publican party who actod with him iu
leaving the "regular rogues," and
in bringing out an opposition ticket, did
so because they were seriously dis
uffucted, and houostly displeased with
tho nomination of F. J. Moses, Jr., for
Governor, and the other objectionable
nominations. Theso boltors are pre?
sumed to know a greab deal moro of the
character and conduct of their leaders
than wo outsiders do, and when they
abandoned tho Convention and regular
organization of their party, we knew
aud they must have kuown still better
that there existed abundant can3e.
This belief rested partly, of course,
npon what is matter of general noto?
riety, in regard to the regular nominees,
and upon the extraordinary revelations
and well-sustained charges made in the
Convention itself, and in its disgraceful
proceedings, as well as upon the sup?
posed wider, deeper and moro inti?
mate knowledge the bolters possessed of
the fellows they left behind them in tho
deserted camp. We thiuk some degree
si confidence may also bo credited to
the motives of Judge Orr aud his im?
mediate associates, based upon the
hotter character they sustuin before the
oommunity. No charges of corruption,
that we know of, have ever been ad?
vanced against Judges Orr and Greene,
and none against their candidato for
Governor, Mr. Reuben Tomlin eon,
until after his nomination was made.
The Nation, a journal of high standing,
has vouched for his integrity, ability
and honesty-basing its opinion upon
long acquaintance. That journal has
said that "could he be eleoted, South
Carolina would have, for the first time
atuso the wai? a creditable Governor,
sagacious aud honorable."
In view of the standing which is thus
claimed for them, and the forbearing aud
ever generous construction which it iu
the general desire among respectable
persons to place upon their conduot and
motives, we think they owe it to the
country to justify it, if they can, and to
place beyond question tho good charac?
ter and honest lives of their candidates.
They claim to be par excellence the party
of integrity, to desire the correction and
leform of abuses, the inauguration of a
now era of honest State administration,
of economical expenditure aud strict ac?
countability. This position challenges
investigation, and, as was to be expected,
has already brought forth a crop of im?
putations, insinuations and charges,
principally, so far, ugainst tho candidate
for Goveruor. It will not do for the
bolters to be silent under thone charges,
nor to content themselves with general
denials of them, or to merely make pro?
testations of innooenoo. This would be
to adopt the weak tactics of their adver?
saries, as exemplified io repeated in?
stances by Chamberlain, who pretends to
thiuk his character u tower of strength,
and a sufficient refutation of the nume?
rous swindles laid ut his door. The
most glariug and presumptuous instance
of this sorry und flimsy resort to mere
denial, was made by Moses, Jr., a few
days since. He denied in toto, and in
detail, all charges brought against him,
whether they concern pay certificates,
armed foroe, purchase of arms, or any?
thing else, and endeavors to throw the
onus probandi upon those who make
them. Thoao who set up for reform, and
who claim to have 'character, oannot af?
ford to adopt this weak devioe of thc
regular rogues. It is too thin to oovei
the nakedness of their villainy; aud, at
an example, it would bo dangerous and
impolitic for honest men to follow.
Wo heard the denial made by District
Attorney Corbin, in tho Bolters' Con?
vention, of tho complicity of Mr. Tom
linson, charged by Judge Mackey, in
dishonest dealings in tho matter of the
phosphate bill and the Greenville Rail?
road stock. Notwithstanding this, it
has again boon brought forward by Sec?
retary Oardozo and Judge Melton, with
gomo minuteness of details, and with
offers on tho part of tho latter to pro
duco his authority, if desired. Tho ad
missions of tho former of the honesty
aud uprightness of Mr. Tomliuson, ii:
thc same speech in which he states that
he admitted to him that ho helped tc
buy np the Senate to pass tho phosphate
bill, show him oithor falso in his state?
ments, as ia emphatically ?aid by Tom
linson, or that his idea of honesty anil
uprightness is something quite origina
?nd uniquo. We oopied, yesterday,
from the Charleston News, a well-writter.
letter of Mr. Tomlinson, in which these
imputations upon bis conduct and integ?
rity are indignantly repelled. Having
disposed of Cardozo, he Bays that he
will "be only too glad to have bis (Judge
Melton's) authority for the assertion he
has seen tit to mako," viz: "that he
(Tomlinson) had borrowed the money,
or endorsed a note at tho bank to get
the money, which was used for tho pur
; pose of getting tho phosphate bill
through." We think Jndgo Melton can?
not consistently withhold his authority,
and we think, furthermore, that there
should be something moro produced in
its verification than a mei-o name. Wo
call for testimony that will pass muster.
Judge Moiton, doubtless, knows the
importance of innocence as against the
machinations of fulsehood, in such a
world as wo live in. If, as Swift said, a
Ho can run round the world beforo truth
can pot on his boots to pursue it, every
honorable mau should bo scrupulous
about sotting a lie afloat, and is bound
to mako it appear that whut ho has
uttered had all tho marks and character?
istics of truth when used by him, whe?
ther true or false in fact.
Before leaving tho subject, we desire
again to present to Mr. Tomlinson and
his friends the importance of exact, full
and explicit exposition of mntters which,
originally private, have now become of
publio interest. We say this with a sin?
cere desire that the truth maybe so fully
elicited that good may come of it, both
to themselves and to the public interests.
We think that ho has disposed of Car?
dozo effectually, and has done tho proper
thing in demanding of Judge Melton
authority for statements which involve
his honor. In calling upon Judge Mel?
ton for satisfactory proof of his charges
on tho one hand, wo think it well, on the
other, to suggest to Mr. Tomlinson that
he furnish to the public, if not incon?
sistent with his honorable obligations to
others, or hurtful to their legitimate in?
terests, a more detailed account of hie
agency in tho passage of the phosphate
bill, of the mode in which he became
possessed of phosphate stock, its amount,
ko., ?fcc, accompanied by substantiation
of suoh reputable men associated with hi m
as the public kuow and confide in. Wc
regret to have to ask so much ns this,
but Mr. TomlinBon's maturo reflections,
we think, will lead him to see the neces?
sity and advantago of it to himself. Il
is an opportunity for setting at rest t
matter whioh, unless elaborately and
satisfactorily cleared up, will continue tc
trouble him, and whioh, although possi
bly disagreeable, ho should promptly
Nomination of Hon. B. F. Perry.
The Convention of the Fourth Con
gressional District settled upon the Hon
B. F. Perry as tho Conservative candi
date for Congress. There is, perhaps
no mau more generally known through
out the State than ex-Gov. Perry, no
one moro universally esteemed and re
speotcd for sterling qualities of head ant
heart. His nomination cannot fail ti
give satisfaction to all good and i n tell i
gent citizens of tho District, and hi
election will be a source of rejoicing ti
1 the entire State. It will be well fo
Sonth Carolina to have one true nm
trusty servant in Congress, and no bet

Mr. Tilden said, at tho Democrati

stated as plainly and barely as ono need
wish it. It is tho koy-noto of tho can

Oar readers tunst not be misled by the
returns from Maine, as given in the
telegraphic columns. Tho comparisons
are all made with the vote of 1870,
which wus a very small one. The only
true tests to show tho Liberal Republi?
can and Democratic gain, is to oomparo
the vote with that of the lust Presi?
dential year, 16G8. All tho reports indi
cato an exceedingly full vote, such as
was the uituo in Vermont. This ic
always the caso iu tho State elections of
Presidential years. It uppeurs that there
was even a fuller vote in Muinu on Mon?
day last than even at Grant's election in
18C8. Grant carried the State theu by
a mijority of 28,030. Chamberlain, the
Republican candidate for Governor, at
tho electiou of 1808, corresponding to
this one, was elected by 24,000 majority,
Tho difference between these ligares

show the Radical gains or losses.
A STUMP SPEAKER IN PETTICOATS -We
have been vory hopeful of Greeley's
election, notwithstanding the letter of
Gen. Wise, the Convention of Mr. Dun?
can, and the attitude of Mr. O'Conor,
but we uro now really alarmed. Miss
Fletcher-it is true you never beard of
her, but atill she thinks herself a power
in the laud-hus "taken the stump" in
Ohio for Grant, and several othur par?
ticularly strong minded womou have fol?
lowed her example. It is suifl that these
awful dames and damsels play the very
deuce with Mr. Greeley, and there is no
telling what tho result may be. This is
a dreadful Btate of affairs, and it is
lamentable to think that tho philosopher
has brought it on himself by his candor
in saying that he thinks women ought
not to vote, and unsex themselves by
mingling in the brawls and excitements
of political lifo. A great many profound
thinkers agree with him it is true; but,
then, Miss Fletcher is ou tho war-path,
and determined to have his scalp! Under
these circumstances we begin to feel a
little alarm, for there is no telling how
muuy votes she muy carry for Grunt if
she happens to bo particularly good

LUCKY CONFEDERATES- A PLEASANT
TIME IN EOYPT-PALACES AND ORIENTAL
LUXURY.-News lately received from the
ex Confederate officers now in the mili?
tary service of the Egyptian Viceroy,
shows that they are in tho enjoyment of
all the comforts and luxuries of life in?
cidental to tho Oriental countries. An
exchange gives some interesting extracts
from a lotter dated Alexandria, Egypt,
July 22, received at Lewieburg, from
General Reynolds, who, with other ex
Confoderate officers, for soveral years,
has been in tho military service of tho
Khedive of Egypt. There is quito a
contrast between tho quarters these of?
ficers had during their service in tho
Confederacy and that which they now
havo in thut of the Viceroy of Egypt, as
will bo seen by tho followiug extract:
"Since I last wrote you, wo havo
moved our quarters from old Mussafar
Kbuuua to this magnificent induce of
K'boara, just on tho outskirts of the
city. Il was built by Said Pacha, the
former Viceroy, as u country palace.

except occasionally princes, dukei, dis?
tinguished strangers, See. His Highness

park, with broad avenues, shaded by
trees. Tho gardons contain about ton
acres of ail the fruits of the tropics, und
filled with tho rarest flowers, with large
fountains throwing their spray iu every
direction; beautiful statuary and vases
lino tho walks. It looks Jika a fairy
scene. The rooms of tho palaco aro of

A Ifrutal Murder.
About 8 o'clock, lust eveuing, Henry
L. Perrin, Clerk of tho Board of County
Commissioners, was shot und instantly
killed by TriulJustico, L. I. Woolf, on
(Meeting street, opposite City Park.
The two men, in company with Deputy
United States Marshals, Hendrix aud
Reid, had beeu conversing in front of
Wulberu's restaurant, a short distance
above the bceuo of the murder.
Woolf, who was iu liquor, took
oflouco at somo trivial remark of
Perrin's, und cursed him as u d-d
blackguard. Perrin Bttid, "Woolf, do
not call mu a blackguard." Woolf, how?
ever, repeated tho assertion, whereupon
Perrin struck him in the face with his
bund. Woolf made au attempt to ro?
turo the blow, but was seized by Hen?
dricks before ho could do so. Thu
lutter led him iuto tho restaurant, uud
endeavored to persuade him that the
blow bad beeu struck iu jest. lu the
meanwhile Perrin aud Reid walked
down Meeting .street iu the direction of
Broad street. After somu persuasion on
Hendricks' part, Woolf consented to
make no further attempt to renew the
altercation, and ou .s it y i U?? iii at the
matter would bo dropped there, the
former released his bold. Woolf then
went to the bar iu a rear room uud
called for u drink, Hendricks retnuiuirq
in the vestibule. While drinking the
liquor, Woolf told the proprietor, Mr.
Wulberu, that he iuteuded to shoct
Perrin, and us soon us ho left the bur
Mr. Wulberu iuformed Hendricks, who
was still in tho vestibule, to that effect.
Woolf by this time had stepped iuto the
street, whither Hendricks followed as
soon as he learned of Woolf's avowal of
a murderous intention. The lutter
overtook Perrin and Reid iu front of
Mujor Corbin's resideuce, and drew a
revolver. Perrin tt:-'ied partly round
und cried, "Dou'tsboot; I um uuarmed."
Wool fired twice, however, in quick
succession, und, it is alleged, was ubout
to tire a third time, when the pistol was
wrenched from his grasp by Hendricks.
Perrin fell to tho pavement and in?
stantly expired. Several detectives und
a policeman having been attracted \)y
the reports of tho pistol, now uppeared
upon the sceue, arrested the murderer
and carried him to the gourd bouse,
where he is now confined. In the nicuu
tune a dense crowd bud assembled upon
the scene, und pressed arouud ibo budy
with all the eugerness of excited
curiosity. Lieutenant Chapman, of the
police loree, being present, ordered a
city ambulance and bud the body con?
veyed to tho residence of County Com?
missioner F. C. Miller, on Meeting
stieet, opposite Water. Here u jury of
iuipeat was empaneled by Coroner Tuft,
which immediately ufterwurds adjourned,
to meet at IU o'clock this morning, in
the coroner's olUcc.
Tho murdered man, Porrin, is said to
have been of a remarkably inoffensive
j nature, unobtrusive aud jovial iu dispo?
sition, and was much liked by all who
I kuew him. He was thirty-eight years
old, and a native of New York, but has
?been a resident of this city since I860.
His father was celebrated for his love of
the turf and liue horses, having ouce
.been tho owner of tho renowned Flora
Temple. He was also for a number of
year3 Presideut of the Butchers' and
Drovers' Bunk, of New York city. An
elder brother of the deceased is now pre?
sident of that institution. Perrin was
for a long time a member of Hook and
Ladder Compauy No. 1, of this city, in
which organization his congenial man?
ners won him mauy frieud.s. He is rep?
resented AS having been perfectly sober
at tho timo of the shooting. He was
struck by ono ball, which entered the
right breast near tho dividing line, a lit?
tle bolow the collar bono, with an incli?
nation to tho loft, und probably passed
through the heart. - Charleston ?cics.
A SCRAP OF H AUFM HISTORY.-There
is always a certaiu curiosity which socdt3
tho incidents of tho inner lifo of thc ha?
rems with an avidity which is often fully
warranted by tho disclosures. Thc Lo?
vant Timas, under dato of August 12,
gives tho history of the death of a bounti?
ful Circassian slave, supposed to bo poi?
soned. She had been purchased some
time ugo, for tho sum of JLTUI), by a
wealthy Mussulman of high rank, a man
will advanced in life, who has ono legal
wife and a number of concubines, but no
children. Sbo became the favorito of
hor mastor, who was much distressed
some day? ago, at her falling seriously
ill, her malady being characterized by
thorough prostration of the system. He
had her removed to the house of ono of
his dependents near his yali on tho Bos
phoroiis, giving instructions that medi?
cal aid should be procured, and no pains
or expense spared to rcstoro the sulTeror

son to whom the precious chargo was iu
trusted fulfilled theso instructions, was
to sond for a medical man und drive a
bargain with him at tho rate of twenty
piastres 11 visit, medicines to be included.
lt is stated, and is very probably true,
that tho practitioner did not pay a
second visit. A "wiso woman" was then
called in, and wrote some talismanic
words on a scrap of paper. The patient
was visitod daily by a nnmbor of her fel?
low-slaves from tho harem, who dis?
played much compassion for her aud a
respect indicative of the high place she
occupied iu her master's affections. For
six days sbo neither ate nor drank any?
thing, and she remained in a comatose
stato, apparently paralyzed, until last
night, when she expired-the viotim,

MR. TOMLINSON'S CHARACTER.-The
Nation, a paper of the highest character,
thus speaks of Mr. Tomlinson. The
opinion of tho editor is based upon a
long personal acquaintance:
"There is, indeed, no State iu whioh
Mr. Tomlinson would not be a useful
citizen, 60 far as integrity, ability and
honesty go to make a citizen useful,
aud in him, could he be elected, South
Carolina wonld have, for the first time
Biuco tho war, a creditable Governor,
sagacious and honorable. We do not
know that ho has any chance of election.
But it is curtain that ho ought to get the
vote of all South Carolinians who have
spoken a word of detestation against the
true carpet-bagger, while at tho same
time expressing a willingness to welcome
honost Northerners into the State."
