COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday morning, Sept. 25,1872.
For President of the United Stales,
lion ACE GKEELKY. or New York.
B. GRATZ 11KOWJ?, or missouri.
C?ndidacy mt Hon. B. F. Ferry.
In a note published yesterday from
Hon. B. F. Perry, tho Liberal Republi?
can candidate for Congress in the Fourth
Congressional District, ho makes ap?
pointments to meet and address tho peo?
ple at Laurons Court House, Spartan
bnrg Court House, Union Court House,
Yorkvillo, Rook Hill, Chester Court
House and Winnsboro, beginning 30th
September and ending 12th October.
Colonel Perry is a bold, honest and con?
scientious man. Ho has all his life boen
distinguished for tho frank expression,
and the firm maintenance of his political
opinions. These have often been at
variance with those entertained by tho
.people of South Carolina. But during
all this time of quasi opposition to the
-sentiments that were dominant in the
State, and sometimes to those held
among his own immediate constituency,
he has been respected, honored and
supported. He was kao^ra to be honest
and sinoere, and these qualities sustained
him in the advocacy of evon unpopular
views. . Colonel Perry is now presented
to the people of the Fourth Congres?
sional District as thoir candidate for
Congress. They have been practically
without a representa ti vu for several
years. Having the requisite majority,
they naturally desiro that they shall be
represented, and very strongly that
they shall not bo misrepresented any
longer. Other portions of the State
sympathize with them in this desire, and
feel an interest in the election. As they
cannot be direotly represented them?
selves, they the more anxiously wish that
at least ono man, worthy of the State, and
whose ability, eloquence, acquirements
and spirit, qualify him fitly to represent
it, shall be heard in Congress. Cob
Perry can present our case with telling
effect. If any man is entitled to be
heard in Congruas as a national man, and
because always a consistent Union man,
it is he. Retaining his loyalty to his
State, still fired by the love of homo and
friends, and amid all the defections to
principio keoping his honor and his in?
tegrity bright and unsullied, and repre?
senting as ho will a prostrate community,
an insnlted negro and Government-rid?
den people, he will have wrongs to exhi?
bit, themes to expatiate upon, whioh
wpnld "stir the blood of age, and make
an infant's sinew strong as steel." Con?
gress is the field where Col. Perry can do
honor to himself, acceptably' serve his
own constituency, and make an impres?
sion in favor of the whole people of
South Carolina, whioh will do them sig?
nal service tn the dnrk times and circum?
stances whose gloom and shadows en?
velope us now, and are projected far into
Imported Negro Vote In Indiana.
We all know in South Carolina what
aptitude tho oolored man has for voting.
It is ono of those things which he cannot
bear to misa. He is sure to vote. He
does it early, late and often. He votes
as if he were endeavoring to make np for
lost time, for those years in whioh,
under the laws, he was not allowed to
vote. White men ' ma; be, and often
are, remiss in this matter. They require
to be argued and expostulated with, to
induce them to go to tho registration or
the polls. They shrink from the scenes
whioh they are compelled to witness
there, and they are despondent of pro
dnoing any good effect by their votes.
They show reluctance. Not so the
oolored man. He has no delicacy and
no scruples about it. He likes to put his
ballot in, whether it will do any good or
not. In his view, it always does good,
and is always a good thing. He never
tires of voting (pr Aristides, the Just, aa
the Athenian boor did, or any one else,
the unjust. He just likes to vote and to
keep ou voting. It is his affair to cast
the .ballot, not tb regard toe conse?
quences. These he leaves to his ma?
nagers. The vote ic the,, sign of his
manhood, the proof of his equality, and
it pleases him, as often as possible, to
exhibit it. . Yoting never becomes stale
to him, no matter how often, or how un?
justifiably, exercised. It hos a perennial
freshness and sweetness for him.
Knowing how ho loves it, how he is on
the qui vive to assert himself by this oct,
knowing also that ho puts a moderate
money value upon his right to suffrage,
as compared with white mon, the Radical
managers in North Garolina largely
availed themselves of the abundant sup?
ply of free and easy oolored votes in tho
border Counties of Virginia and South
Carolina. They poured into that State
and turned the scale. And now an elec?
tion approaches in Indiana. The Radi
cal leaders of that State, emul?os of the
success of their North Carolina exem?
plars, have successfully planned for a
large importation of colored voters. It
ia reduced to system, and is carried on
to an enormous extent. Morton's elec?
tion is in peril, and the Administration
in straits. Its resources are at tho com?
mand of Morton, in order that the State
may not be lost. If the imported negro
vote can save it, it will be saved. Oh,
tho ballot! the ballot! don't

SWEDEN'S NEW KINO.-By.n cable de?
spatch, wo learn that on Friday the State
dignitaries at Stookholm took the oath
of allegianoo to tho nqw Sovereign of
Sweden and Norway. Oscar Frederick,
late Dake of Ostrogothic, now pro?
claimed King Osoar II, is the eldest bro?
ther of the late King Charles XV, and
son of King Oscar I. He is now forty
three years of age, a man of acknow?
ledged ability, and will begin his'reign
enjoying the good will and confidence of
his subjects. Ia accordance with usage,
he will bo separately crowned in the two
ancient kingdoms-at Stockholm for
Sweden, and at Dronthcim for Norway.
While the united nations mourn for the
death of King Charles they will rejoice
over the aooossion of King Osoar.
THE "BAUX" RAIDEOAD.-An enter?
taining correspondent of tho Now York
Evening Post, who bas been takiug a
ride on the Denver and Rio Grande
"narrow gauge,"- thus relates his railroad
A great pet with the Denverians is the
"baby railroad," so-called, because its
narrow guage (only three feet wide) and
single track remind one rather of some
arrangement for tho delight of the nur?
sery than of any method seriously con?
trived for the transportation of adult
passengers and their belongings. Its
real namo is the Denver and Rio Grande
Railway, and it will not he long before
the City of Mexico, old, romantic,
almost forgotten Mexico, will bo directly
oonnected by its means with Eastern and
Northern civilization. Even as now
finished to Puebla, it connects Denver
with tho heart of the most remarkable
region of this laud of wonders. Hither?
to wo had only seen the mountains from
afar, but tho first minuto out of Denver
by this route showed a difference, and
established the magical Arabian Night
sey feeling which never left us since. In
the first place, the comfortable littlo car,
with two seats on one side and one on
the other, suggested a pleasant remi?
niscence of our first stage coaches, con?
structed of chairs, with papa au hooored
passenger, and inclined us to believe the
nonsense gravely told us that the long
straps winoh hung over the seats were
intended to tie in the passengers, as little
ohildren are fastened ia high chaira, for
fear a single tilt of the steam cradle
should send us over the engine. Find?
ing that these straps woroj.only window
supportera was, of course, a disappoint?
ment, like discovering that Santa Claus
is not a'real existence; but the glamour
remained, and if we had found ourselves
dwindled to the dimensions of Tom
Thumb's cortege I believe that we should
buvo been rather pleased than mach sur
prised. To these quasi infantile intel?
lects the telegraph poles along tho way
wore sources of inexhaustible interest.

and tho completo mile accomplished with
delightful certainty at tho twenty
seventh. Does not everybody romember
how a long walk used to be shortened in
tho early days by cutting it into pieces
mentally nnd counting tho divisions seri?

ment were a contrivance to amuBO tho
baby railroaders, and scouted the idea
that it was for the benefit of section en?
gineers and such people.

THE GRANT PYRAMID.-Among a vast
deal of bosh that too Grant papers are
constantly filled with, in placo cf argu?
ment and reason, the so-called Grant
pyramid has been considered quito a
hit. It is copied from one to the other,
without alteration, and evidently with?
out consideration, as the following prick?
ing of tho bubble will show. We repro?
duce it, simply because thoughtless
readers may glanoe at it carelessly, and
take its falsities for political-gospel truth.
Tho Cincinnati Times recently produced,
at tho end of an editorial review of the
State elections that have taken place
since the nominations of Grunt and Gree?
ley, the following rotten fragment of
"Greeley hos as yet not a Stat?: to
show-and what ono will he get in Octo?
ber?-to compote with the assured result?
summed up in this Grant pyramid:
CONNECTICUT^ '/. )
WEST VIRGINIA (e.)
RHODE ISLAND (f.)
NEW HAMPSHIRE (// )
NORTH CAROLINA, (h.)"
The Cincinnati Enquirer thereupon
goes for it, and picks it onsily to pieces,
(a.) Maine has beeu carried hythe
Grant party, with a loss of 3,400 on
125,000 votes. A corresponding loss on
that vote will lode to Gruut Ohio, Penn?
sylvania and Iudiana. With this pro?
viso, it may stand ut the head of tho

many years. Its mujority, however, has
(cl.) Connecticut has hud no election
since the Prosidentiul contest with Grunt
and Greeley opened, and siuce the
Liberal Republican party was formed.
(e.) West Virginia voted for Grunt in
1803 by 0,000 majority. At her late
election the prcsont Democratic Govern?
or, Jacab, who is for Greeley, was oh osen
over another Greeley candidate,, Camden.
There was not a Grant caudidate in thc
field for any State office. The new con?
stitution, adopted by n Democratic State
Convention, and opposed by the Grant
party, was ratified by tho people by n
handsome majority. Isn't this a protty
brick to put iuto a Grunt pyramid?
(f.) Rhode Island. The 'Times and
Chronicle editor forgot that there hud
been no election in this State since
Grant and Greeley were mudo the
standard-bearers of the respective
parties. It, therefore, makes, Uko Ore?
gon, Connecticut and Now Hampshire,
a pretty thing for a purely imaginary
(g.) New Hampshire. No election
has been held here. Tho sumo remarks
apply to it that we made on Rhode
(h.) North Carolina. This State gavo
12,000 majority for Grant. It gave the
Republicans 8,000 majority la6t year.
This year the Grant men have chosen
their Governor by the trifling majority
of 2,000, but the Greeley men have the
Legislature, United States Senator, Con?
gressmen, and overything elso. lt
doesn't, therefore, maka a very sub?
stantial base on which to construct a
Grant pyramid. Knocked out in No?
vember, as it will bo, the whola stinature
falls, if what really belongs to it, after
our deductions, is of sufficient impor?
tance to be called a structure
TUB BLACKVILLE HOMICIDE-ACQUIT?
TAL OF THE ACCUSED.-During Tharsduy
and Friday, of the past week, tho Court
of General Session* for Barnwell Coun?
ty, S. G., was engaged in the trial of
Capt. Black, who was charged with the
killing of Mr. Turner, tho Town Mar?
shal of Blackville. Tho particulars of
the affair are well known to the public.
There was au altercation between Black
and a man named Groves. Turner, with
whom it is generally supposed Black was
friendly, interfered to prevent a fight,
and in tho melee was shot and killed by
Black. In tho same fracas a young mun
named Groves was shot and wounded.
The jury was composed entirely of ne?
groes, and tho prisoner was represented
by ex-Judge Aldrich and Robert Aldrich,
Esq. Col. P. L. Wiggins conducted'the
prosecution on behalf of the State.
After hearing the evidence and the able
argument of the counsel, on both sides,
Judge J. J. Maher, who sat on the bench
for the first time, charged the jury
clearly against the prisoner; but tho
jury, after an absence of three hours, re?
turned a verdict of "not guilty." The
prisoner was then discharged, but waa
subsequently arrested on a warrant for
assault and battery upon young Groves,
who was wounded in the same fracas.
He gave bond for his appearance at court,
and was subsequently released.

MR. THAKIN IN NEW YORK.-At a
Greeley meeting in Ihocity of New York,
Mr. It. S. Thariu, of Charleston, wusoue
of the speakers. The Tribune gives the
following synopsis of his Kcmurks:
Tho Hon. lt. ?5. Thariu, also of South
Caroliua, then mudo short remarks,
claiming in regard to the condition of
tue South, that it was the white people
of tho South who needed tho care of
their Northern brethren, instead of the
negro. [Applause.] They appealed to
uight from the blood-staiued land, and
asked that in Horace Greeley they might
Cud a leader and a pioneer into that
future into which tho couutry is ap?
proaching. [Applause aud cheers. ] Tho
majority of tho South, with the excep?
tion, perhaps, of a single State; are
white people, aud as this is a Govern?
ment of tho people, by the people und
for the people, the South has a right as
a whito population to govern the South,
and Dot the minority, the blacks, many
of whom are ignorant, rude, and unlet?
tered, and who are galvanized into power
! by a legislation as corrupt as those who
have forced it upon the South. If Mr.
Greeley was right when he said that
planters as a minority should not govern
the South, theu he is right again if he
says that the negroes as a minority
should not govern the South. [Ap?
plause.] Horace Gr< eley and B. Grutz
Brown must bo placed at our head to
save us from chaos, from anarchy, uud
from bloody revolution. | Applause.]
Tho Now York Elovated Railway,
which, when lir?t built, iu 1870, was a
decided failure, for tho reasou that the
public feared to trust themselves in the
new contrivance, aud because of the ter?
rifying effect upon the horses produced
by tho noise of the cars overhead, is now
said to havu become a paying concern.
The road has been mortguged two or
three times sinco 1870, aud is now car?
ried on by au entirely new administra?
tion of affairs. Twouty-four traius are
at present run daily between Morris and
Twenty-ninth streets, tho lower and up?
per termini of tho road. Ia tho begin?
ning, tho cars wero propelled by an end?
less cable, kept ia motion by steam en?
gines built below tho streets at various
points. Now, however, steam dummies
sro used for the motive power, aud the
chaugo seems to have popularized travel
on the road. Ia order to avoid acci?
dents, each car is furnished with six
wheels, instead of four, so that if any
one of the wheels should be fractured,
the car will be amply supported by the
rest. Other precautions havo been taken
to rendor it impossible for uny car to bo
precipitated into the street. The run?
ning time from one end of tho route to
the other is fifteen minutes-a gain of
sufficient importance npon the time by
tho ordinary street travel to indnoo a
great many naturally timid people to
patroaize these cars.

at intervals stings tho gullet sharply.
These extremely disagreeable sensations
are attributable to impaired digestion.
To get rid of them or prevent their re?

"How ?an I?" she asked; "don't you see
