A Third Ticket.
Nothing would please the Moses party
batter, for nothing would more certainly
insure their success, than that the White
conservatives should put forward a
third ticket for State officers in the com?
ing election. The colored people of the
State are, f?r the most part, in a very
undecided state of mind at present as to
their duty in tho gubernatorial election.
Some are for Tomlinson, more perhaps
are far Moses, while the large majority
are as yet nu dot er min ed. They are in?
clined tb support TomliuBon as a moro
worthy candidate than Moses; but in
their ignorance they hesitate in taking
a step forward in any other than the
beaten Radical track. Moses and his
?crew were nominated by the "regular"
.Convention. They bava hitherto been
taught a blind obedience to tho direction
of their Convention, and it is not suoh
an easy undertaking for them to' shake
off at once the party shackles which have
bound them, and assert their political
freedom1--and independence. They fdar
sumo trick; on the part, of the whites,
whom they havobeen taught to distrust,
.and any attempt on oar part to run ja
conservative tioket would inevitably,
frighten them all back into the- support
of Moses, or of tho devil himself, could
his satanic majesty's proverbial pride
permit bim to take Moses' place. The
Moseyites, therefore, would chuckle with
delight if tho whites oould in anyway
be induced thus to play into their hands.
Next to au open nomination, it suits
their purpose* best td impress the ap?
prehensive colored people with the dread
that in some secret hoens-pooau way the
. white people intend- ia consolidate their
votes d^^^l.M^lrJA^^j?fjil^ai? hjm in
for Governor betw?oa 'Mosds and Tom?
linson. They are now; assiduously, st oil?
ing the credulous minds -of tho colored
people with fears of .this kind, and unless
each fears can be removed, willi doubt?
less, inflaenoe many of them to vote for
Moses against their better impulses. It
is time?, therefore, for our people to Lake
side? definitely in the coming State
eleotion, that the colored people may see
where we are. No decent man, bf course,
can vote for Moses. Some may not vote
for Tomlinson, but we are confident that
a large majority will.
With anything like a full white vote,
the chances are that Tomlinson and his
ticket will be elected by a handsome ma?
jority. Between' him and Moses there is
no comparison, and the duty of all good
citizens, in our judgment, is plain and
unquestionable. There is nothing in
Mr. Tomlinson or his ticket to arouse
the enthusiasm of our . people, but we
should do our duty, nevertheless; and if
we believe that he would fill the offico of
Governor.more usefully to tho State than
Moses, we should vote for him-and we
should now'declaro our purpose so to do.
"While the blood of John D. Caldwell
WAS shed, according to the jury's ver?
dict, by George Tupper, yet are there
other skirts that cannot, in justice, be
accounted olear. Partisan strife for office
is, doubtless, the beginning of the affair.
Judge Melton cannot be blameless in his
speech against Hon. Montgomery; Mr.
Montgomery is far less blameless in his
oard, in which he denounced the Judge
as *a liar, u poltroon and a coward.' If
what Judge Melton had said was untrue.
Mr.. Montgomery's card Was a wrong
step, destitute in itself of any refutation,
and at variance with that honor which
should attach to one in his position. The
PIIONIX is, up to this stacee of the wicked
programme, equally blameable with
either of the original parties, in that
suoh a card should bo found in its
columns. These facts, in connection
with the aotualj collision Whioh"was going
on when the murder was committed, and
the reticence of - tho PIIONIX concerning
its awn former-inflammatory part, justify
the verdict that some of the murdered
man's blood is sticking io all three of the
parUeff'^BmaJ. And as Maj! ' Morgatf
wasSflsQ atvaflt<>r in the Beetle, be miisfrk
with tila own wounds" ana loss of blood/
bear his part ia tho result. As Capt.
Caldwells, dead -and ? Capt-. - Tupper has
been formally adjudged g'ailty of tho
fatal shot, and iajfcreuftex to bo tried,
these two may Ufiewiti7the hands of
God-the surviving also in the hands of
the law. The placo where this bloody,
scene opdnrrod: was in tho eatitg-riotSm
athtohfedtbth? drinking sal?on ol T. M.
Pollock. After washing np the murder?
ed man's blood from bis, floor, bis'ebaro
of blood wilt Stick fast to bini and the
iniquitous liquor traffic. The liquor
seller may justly wipe, some Of the blood
from himself on the City Council, and
tho Council may share it with the Legis?
lature, and? Judge from the bench and
the President-pro tem: of the Senate of
South Carolina, and others of like views
of official honor and propriety, may
throw their auspices over a drinking
saloon, yet can they never lift it from its
own infamy as determined by a sound
public opinion? Men may go down (?)
to suoh a place, but they can never bring
it above its own fated low level."
We copy the above from the Christian
Neighbor, a religions weekly, published
in our oity. The strained effort to drag
the PHONIX fa as hoing partly relpodMP
ble for the lamentable affair which ended
BO tragically, is certainly both unohrlCt
ian and nneighborly. Onr respeot for
the "cloth" which tho reverend editor
wears, however ungracefully, shall re?
strain us from replying to the urticlo in
the rough terms whioh it richi; de?
serves and invites. There is au air of
complacent, self-righteonsuesB ?bout it
whioh is quite provoking; but we will
pass it by with .the simple remark, that
it is unjust, uncalled for, and designed
to effect no praise-worthy ead.
In publishing.the card of Mr. Mont?
gomery, wo did no more than what is
customary under similar circumstances.
We bad previously published, as a piece
of news, an extract from tho Beaufort
Republican, containing the statement
made by Judge Melton in regard to Mr.
Montgomery. The latter requested that
we should publish his reply to the sumo,
and wo did so, for we oould not well re?
fuse Any .journal would havo done the
same thing, with the exception, perhaps,
of the' Neighbor, to which we willingly
accord the privilege of being thankful
that it is "not as others aro."
Mn.' GnEEL.Br IN TUE WEST.-The on
thusiasrh Which has greeted Mr. Greeley
all along the route of his Western jour?
ney is a sufficient answer to tho boasts
of Grant's people that tho Liberal move?
ment has lost its force. Nothing moro
significant of its great power could be
had than the reception in Pittsburg,
a city whioh has been regarded aa a
stronghold of Radicalism, and where,
but a few days before, a noisy military
convention had been held in the interest
of the Administration. The citizons
seem to have turned out cn masse, and
with illuminations and bonfires and
grand processions miles in length, show?
ed how they honored their gncst. The
response to Mr. Greeley's admirable
speech will be found in a Liberal majo?
rity in Pittsburg on the 8th of October.
Tho deviltry of Harper's great "Jour?
nal of Civilization" has never been sur?
passed in American journalism. It hat.
gone on from bad to worse, until itt

shameful caricature)) of the purest ace
ablest men of the country. By its bit
ter, proscriptive spirit, wo rejoice tc
know that it bas almost entirely lost iti
Southern circulation. The columns o

A PROFITABLE INVESTMENT.-England
has completely turned the tables on us
this lime., Brother Jonathan hns, here?
tofore, had tho credit of dnviag hard
bargaiuH' .aud filling his' own pooket at
other people's expense*. John Boll now
returns tho oom pli m eut with oom pound
interest, and wipes orife old scores with
"duo diligence"-a Yankee invention.
British cruisers in tho Confederate
service drovo American shipping from
the ocean during the civil war. Thoy
annihilated a magnificent marine, which
exceeded ?,000,0U0 tonn, aud transported
twfc-thirds of our foreign trade. lu
three short years, this immense business
was transferred to the British flag, where
it remains to day, immensely augmented
in valuo and profit by seveu years of
peace. When the administration of
Grant carne into office, tho first cry was
u (lomond for reparation against Great
Britain. Preparatory to ,thut step the
Johnson-Clarendon treaty had been ro
jcoted, beoause it only provided for indi?
vidual i i; j uri- ?. The President would
uot listen to anything less than damages
which would atone for the destruction of
commerce, insurauce, pursuit of the
cruisers, and the expenses of tho war
aftor Gettysburg. That was tho tono of
his messages to Congress aud all tho cor?
respondence. He usked, iu round num?
bers, according to tim best estimates,
$1,100,000,000, to make good tho uution
ul and personal losses. Aftor much
parade of this sort, a secret bargain was
mado with Sir James Rose, a British
banker, iii tue winter of 1870, by which
a board ol arbitration was to be estab?
lished to arjjudioatu these claims. That
bargaiu soon took form afterwards, and
was followed by tho treaty, which carno
near breaking down several times, both
before and since tho meeting ut Geneva,
by conflicting constructions of its lan?
guage. Well, tho arbitrators commenced
by kicking out of doors in thu most uu
hnndsomo manner tho whole ?1,100,000,
000, and refusing to take auy notice, of
Mr. Fish's supplicatory appeal to estab?
lish "a principle" in regard to claims for
iudirect losses. Theu adoptiug tho
thoughts and the figures of Mr. Cobden
in tho Houso of Commons, they fouud
Great Britain guilty of arming, equip?
ping and harboring tho cruisors, mid
awarded tho Uuited States "a sum iu
gross" of ?15,500,000 to cover every?
thing! Now, what is tho practical result
of this judgment?
1. Englaud secures thc carry? g trude,
which is worth nearly ?100,000,000 a
2. Englaud secures a treaty by which
the United States aro bound to keep the
police of American waters and ports, iu
case Englaud should bo engaged in fo?
reign war, or a revolt in Ireland, so that
no ships or arms can ba sold or trans?
ported to any belligerent.
3. England secures a receipt iu full
for all past depredations upon American
commerce, aud a pledge of future aud
fraternal friendship, for having outwit?
ted the Yankees.
Besides all these benefits, England is
to have a large award from tho commis?
sion to sutllo British claims, which will
perhaps offset tho allowance at Genova.
It would never do for the shrewed diplo?
matists, who have managed to mako the
President, Secretary of State, commis?
sioners, counsel, agent and arbitrators,
tho instruments of their success, to ex?
hibit any joy which might provoke popu?
lar resentment. So my Lord Cockburn
was conveniently sullen, and tho Tory
press have been told to clamor against
tho award, by way of soothing the hot
spirit of poor Jonathan. lu dollars and
couts, the verdict is ?15,500,000 to tho
United States, from which must be de?
ducted the awurds of the British claims
yetto bo mado. That is our side of the
account. England gets ?100,000,000 a
year of carrying trade, and u commerce
enlarged by nevon years of peaceful mo?
nopoly. That is the Grant way of doing
business with foreign nations, and espe?
cially with our greatest rival. Aud wo
are asked to throw up our caps und shout
ourselves hoarso over thia "great
achievement," as it is called by tho pa?
triots and presses wearing tho Grant
livery. After having buscdy surrendered
every pretension, and being humiliated
by a settlement which udds insult to in?

abjectly abandoned American rights,-hus

Tho American people have now au op?
portunity to cont?mplate tho strange
spectacle of a Stuto official in jail for his
honesty, aud not for his knavery. In?
deed, it ia probable that if ho were moro
pf a 'rogue, ho could have established
closer relations with tho authorities, who
would then tuko bettor caro of him thau
send him to jail. But Jua. Graham, Stuto
Auditor of Louisiana, is iu prison, be?
cause ho refused to pay a judgment
claim of ?17,000 against"tho State, on
the ground of manifest illegality. Tho
court had ordered tho Auditor to pay tho
money, but as it involved au ultimate
ss of nearly 81,000,000, and perhaps
oro, to tho State, he refused. So, by a
sort of legal snap gamo, tho Auditor was
sent to prison. Tho court said: "The
Auditor is morally right, but legally
wrong." Tho casu would have boen
paralleled io New-York cit v, a couple of
years ago, if Comptroller Connolly, for
example, hail refused to pay any of tho
bogus judgment ft against the city signed
by tho ocrrupt Barnard judioiary. Tho

chances aro that bo will bo promoted

THE NEGVBO'S FUTURE HOME.-The
New York Herald, of Tuesday, bas two
columna on "our negro population-its
political iufluoucu ana labor movements,*'
it argues that thu negro, being adapted
by notare to a tropical climate, and beitfg
averse to unnecessary labor, will ulti?
mately go from Delaware, Marylan?l,
Virginia, Missouri, North Carolina and
Kentucky, and from tbe tipper and mid?
dle seotions of Tennessee, South Caro?
lina and Georgia, to tho moro extreme
portions of the South, where production
is more spontaneous, clothing .lighter
and cheaper, fuel less needed and costly
habitations unnecessary. We subjoin tho
concluding paragraphs of tho herald's
Two leading deductions may at this
day be mude:
1. There is and will bo a steady exodus
of the negro population Southward und
into tho tropics.
2. It will cluster in districts where the
arabio land is friable and easily worked,
where vegetation is most spontaneous,
aud where agriculture will return the
largest products or wages with the least
These people have little individuality,
andar? very gregarious; the current of
migration will be swelled by their procli?
vity to follow their "crowd." This dis
position draws them to villages, towns
and cities. A false pride since emanci?
pation, and on appreciation of the
"greatness thrust upon them," have pro?
duced au aversion to menial service; they
confound it with slavery, which it re?
sembles. But they will enduro it, if they
can obtain with it association, "liuery,
music aud splurge," itt Whioh they de?
light. In those districts where their
population once becomes sensibly dimi?
nished, a rapid disappearance will ensue.
Personal proclivities govern them much
moro iu their local changes than do policy
or politics. A wide field for whito immi?
grant laoor is steadily opening ia the
Northern and middle States of the
Sooth; and on the movement of the co?
lored race largely depends its own ulti?
mate fate in America. It may result in
PRAYER ANSWERED-A MIRACLE IN NEW
YOKE-STOLEN PROPERTY RECOVERED.
There is a house on Fifteenth fatreet,
New York, in which a regular prayer
moeting has beeu held weekly for over
twenty years. Lust week, a youug lady
boarding in the house heard some one in
her room at night. It proved to bo a
burglar, who stripped the room, carrying
(di, among other things, a new silk dress
aud a gold watch belonging to thu young
lady. Tho watch was highly prized as
belonging to her father, who some time
ugo was shot by a burglar. Saddened
by tho loss, and not knowing anything
else to do, the young lady shut herself ?
up in her room, and began to pray for
the recovery of her lost goods, especially
for her new silk dress aud watch. A day
or two afterward, at tho edge of the
evening, a bundle was left at the base?
ment door; it contained the watoh and
the new dress. A piece of brown paper,
soiled, torn aud jagged, had on it some
writing, evidently by one not accustomed
to tho fino arts. The noto stated that
tho writer had robbed the house, was
immediately takcu sick, and could get no
peace of body or mind. He had con
eluded, therefore, to return those things,
but the rest he hud parted with. If be
lived, be would earn money euough to
pay tho balance. Tho young lady has
no doubt that the goods were returned in
direct answer to her prayer.
Au exceedingly dramatic contribution
to nursery literature is the story of a
domiciliary visit lately made by a num?
ber of bouncing bugaboos belonging to
the Missouri K. K. The night wau dark,
tho household drowsed, when from his
sleep its head was roused by shouts of a
ferocious kind, proceeding down the
midnight wind. They meant, of course,
a K. K. gang. Up from his bed tho good
mau sprang, as through the door there
poured a host led by a masked and hor?
rid ghost. This interesting object looked
as largo and awful as ho could, waved a
pistol round in a dreadful manner,
scrunched his teeth, and inquired in a
very loud and ogreish voice, like Jack's
traditional giant, "Who has beeu (deal?
ing carn? Who is too lazy to support
his family about here? Who has boen
telling tales?" Howevor much these
terrille and pertinent questions struck
terror^o the soul of tho victim, he yet
found strength to answer mildly but firm?
ly, "No one." Whereupon tho spectre
leador, or tho howling avenger, with a
final scrunch, observed, "Well, Nivons,
you can go to bed," and departed with
his fearful crew. Tho unparalleled atro?
city of this act ought to furnish forth
Administration speeches for tho next
four weeks at least.

ment Association beg to announce that a
concert in behalf of their association will
be given in Columbia, early in Novem?
ber. A number of celebrated amateur
performers of this place, besides seve?
ral gentlemen from other parts cf the
State, have generously lent their services
for the occasion.
The programme and full particulars of
tho concert will be published some
weeks prior to the fair, so that persons
residing in distant parts of the State
may avail themselves of this opportunity
to enjoy a rich musical treat.
Tho Monument Association has pur?
chased a site for the Confederate monu?
ment, and hopes soon to lay the corner?
stone. A large sum is still needed to
complete the work, and we appeal to all
for aid-to those whose privilege it was
to fight by the side of the gallant dead
whoso deeds we commemorate; to the
mothers and wives of these men; to their
children, who, in years to come, are to
redeem South Carolina; and lastly, to
those who love liberty and who honor
the past and pray for the futuro of our
SOUR STOMACH.-If the food taken
into tho stomach is not digested, it de?
composes. In the latter case, a pungent
gas is developed, which causes sour
eructations, or else the stomach itself
secretes un acid, which, rising upward,
at intervals stings the gullet sharply.
These extremely disagreeable sensations
are attributable to impaired digestion.
To get rid of them or prevent their re?
currence, it is only necessary to tone and
regulate the gastric organs with Hostet
ter's Bitters. It will not answer to post?
pone the great corrective with the idea
that the unpleasant symptoms will dis?
appear of themselves. So far from that
being the case, they almost invariably
culminate, if neglected, in chronic dys?
pepsia, with its concomitants of gnawing
in the stomach, dizziness, perverted
vision, headache and sleeplessness, lt is
true, that all these disagreeables may be
obviated by a course of the Bitters; but
how much wiser to anticipate their ar?
rival with one or two doses of that sore
preventive of indigestion and strength?
ener of the alimentary organs. S21f3^1
"Mr. Greeley's speeches," says the
New York World, "without exception,
have been excellent, and, perhaps, it is
not over-praise to say, admirable. Brief
when the occasion calls for brevity;
longer when the ocaasion justifies more
fullness, but never prolix or tedious,
perpetually varied, according to the au?
dience; simple, spontaneous, unstudied,
but the off-hand utterances of a man of
stable, earnest convictions; free from in?
vective or any approach lo discourtesy ;
and suffused with the healing spirit of
magnanimous patriotism, which seems to
flow as from an inexhaustible fountain,
theso ever-ready and always portinent
speeches will raise Mr. Greeley vastly in
the estimation of hie countrymen."
