II. GRATZ BROWN, of Muionrl.
The State Election.
We have not yet received anthentio re
tarns from the different Gonnties in tho
State as to tho resnlt of the election on
Wednesday. "Wo think it safe to pr??
same, however, from what has boen
hoard, that Moses and the corruptionists
have been elected by a considerable ma?
jority. A spasmodio effort was made by
gome public-spirited gentlemen of this
city, a few days previous to tho election,
by issuing a circular, to draw out tho
white vote in support of the Bolters' or
opposition movement, but it was too
late to effect any great good. There i3
no doubt now that if a full white vote
had boen cast iu favor of tho Bolters,
Moses and the ring would have been
whipped out of their boots. Wo had a
glorious opportunity to redeem our
State, and have lost it. Probably so fa?
vorable an opportunity will never be
offered again. We do not mean to say
that tho Bolter's tieket was unexcep?
tionable, or that its success would
have worked au immediate re?
form in the State Ooverumont.
The individual characters of tho candi?
dates, provided only they were suck as
we could honorably Buetain, were not to
bo considered. It was oar duty, as pa?
triotic citizens, to look to tho future ef?
fect upon the State which tho elect iou of
the Bolters' would have had. It would
have broken at onoe the power of party
conventions, whioh are now manipulated
by bad men, and are chiefly instrumental
in giving tho control of the State Govern?
ment to unscrupulous and venal ad ven?
tar ero. South Carolina is to-day govern?
ed by an oligarchy; and, what is moro to
be deplored, by a corrnpt and rascally
oligarchy,'' the sole aim of whioh is indi?
vidual gain at the publio expense. The
Republican party mles the State, and
this wretched conclave of swindlers, of
whioh Moses is now the acknowledged
head1, shapes the aotion of the party as
it wills., If wo, had defeated tho regular
Convention nominees, as is now apparent
that we might have done, we would have
been freed, at one blow, from the
loathsome power of these bad mon.
A combination would have been made
between the decent white people and
twenty or twenty-five thousand of the
colored people, which is sufHoient to
ensure good government in the State.
We would have gotten a foothold. There
would have been a bond of union be?
tween the blacks and whites whioh could
not be disturbed, and which must have
Why is it, now, that the white people
did not turu out generally and support
the Bolters or opposition?
In our judgment the blame rests first
upon tho Executive Oommittee of the
Democratic party of the State, and, se?
condly, upon the daily press of Charles?
ton. Our people, whether wisely or not,
have been iu the habit of entrusting
themselves in their action upon public
affairs to the guidance of a few promi?
nent men, upon whose intelligence and
fidelity they reposed implicit confidence.
This body of political advisers is at pro?
sont embraced in the State Central Ex?
ecutive Oommittee of the Demooratio
party. In an emorgenoy like the pre?
sent it was to be presumed that they
would have at least some word of coun?
sel to give their fellow-citizens, who were
ready and willing to do whatever might
be deemed best for our dear old State.
But not a word said the Executive Oom?
mittee. Scarcely a dozen of them, out
of thrice that number, could even be in?
duced to attend a meeting, and thoso
who did come could determine upon no?
The Charleston press was equally to
blame, for had it done its duty, thou?
sands of white voters would have at?
tended tbe polls, instead of Btaying .at
home and giving tho State to Moses.
The News nffeoted to seo only "black
dog and monkey" in the twp tickets,
and attempted to stand, BO straight be?
tween thom, that it leaned a littlo to tho
Moses side. The ooarsoof tho News ia
inexplicable to us.
The Courier, it is trne, showed no
leaning for Moses, but it did nothiug to
aid the opposition, It was neutral in
These causes, more than any others,
suggest themselves to our mind as re?
sponsible for the failure of the whito
vote. Still, we have ground for con?
gratulation on tho general result. Tho
Conservatives have gained two Counties,
ot least-Union and York-and we havo
a Senator from Greenville, instead of
The delegation from Union, headed
by General W. H. Wallace, and whioh
is a fusion between the Conservatives
and the Bolters, is aa admirable one.
Thero is no better, truer, and, perhaps,
no abler man in the State than General
Wallace, and we feel that in him all
honest citizens of tho Stato havo a cham?
pion upon whom they may rely, and of
whom thoy moy feel proud. Ten such
men as ho is in the General Assembly
would leaven the whole lump. We have
had direful forebodings of tho evils
which wonld follow the election of Moses
and his party. Now that he is elected,
wa Bhall demand from him and his ad?
ministration a faithful performance of
the promises they have made the people
of a reduction of the publie debt and a
retrenchment of State expenditures. We
shall be surprised if the; keep their pro?
mises, but not disagreeably so. What?
ever of good they may do we shall un?
hesitatingly approve-whatever of bad
as fearlessly condemn.

order for the arrest of Dr. Muhlenberg,

guilty respectable abettors, bas made
Philadelphia appear to give the unex?
ampled majority of over 20,000 in favor
of continued corrupt rule in Pennsyl?
With every ohannel of power ready to
aid in executing the systematic defiance
of tho popular will; with debauched or
pliant canvassers to register 25,000
fraudulent names; with the most despe?
rate repeaters of three oities to vote the
registry; with abundance of money,
plundered from the people to pay them;
with election officers selected expressly
to receive every vote offered in favor of
the ring; with a police force to pilot re?
peaters to their localities and protect
! them in polling illegal votes; with of
j floers of the law to guarantee their im?
munity from punishment, and with a
large preponderance of our citizens, who
claim to be the champions of morality
and reform, giving their unqualified
sanotion to what they knew to bo a de?
liberately planned pollution of tho bal?
lot-box-tho result is but tho logical re?
sult of the rule that is now supremely
enthroned in our city and State.
Nor was this gigantic system of fraud
confined to Phil 'dolphin In tho princi?
pal cities and tow .nroughout the
Stato thousands .egal votes have
been polled. .o Liberal causo was
thus ove?-' ' .?mod in Beading, Chester,
West -ster, Columbia, Harrisburg,
Pittsburg, and other localities, while the
rural districts exhibit largo and uniform
gains. I am warranted in announcing
that the large majority polled for Hart
rauft is wholly fraudulent.
Friends of good government, let no
triumph of lawlessness deter yon from
giving your best onergies to the cause.
The highest prerogative of a free peo?
ple has been violently usurped by inso?
lent and debauched power, and the peo?
ple must resent it, and resent it prompt?
ly, or give unquestioned license to
wrong. Now, moro than ever in this
contest, is the election of Horace Gree?
ley to tho Presidency a supreme neces?
sity, if peace and honest government
are not to perish from the annals of our
history. Bight must triumph in this
desperate struggle, if tho pcoplo shall
prove faithful to themselves, to their
laws and to their country.

TROUBLES OF TUE COLORED OA1>ET AT
ANNAPOLIS.-The troubles of dolored
cadet Conyers began ou tho day Of his
entrance it)to the aoademy. On that
evening nu attempt was made to push
him down stairs, but it failed. Last
evening, after dark, while the midship?
men were in line, a number of cadets
twenty it is said-broke line, set upon
the unfortunate boy, and kicked kim
without ceremony. "Lookout, massa,
what yan are doing," was the remon?
strance of the colored cadet. An offlcor
rushed in, with a drawn sword, among
the crowd that gathered around Con
yors, and stopped the attack. Conyers
could only recognize one of his assail?
ants. It is not known what has been
done with tho latter. Tho cadets will
have nothing whatever to do with Con?
yers, except where they are obliged to.
He was seen to approaoh a cadet and
civilly ask him a question regarding
some duty or position, but tho midship?
man addressed was off duty, and not the
slightest attention was paid to Conyers.
Two colored attendants were placed as a
gourd over Conyers, and theso also wore
beaton lost night. Conyers has now
been hero just six days, and has re?
ceived in that time twenty demerits; but
at that aoademy a very small matter
brings a demerit.-New York Tribune,
The report comes from Washington
that Simon Cameron is to be appointed
Secretary of Stato if Grant should bo re?
elected. Well, we aro glad it isn't tho
Secretaryship of the Treasury to which
ho is to be appointed, for in that case it
wouldn't take him six weeks to make a
clean swocp of tho whole concern.
A Ringing Address from tile Indiana
Llucnil Republican. State VommltUe,
To THE LIBERALS OP INDIANA: The
recent elections were bat the skirmish
before the final contest. It was a drawn
battle. Compared with the elections of
18G8, it was a defeat to the old Republi?
can party. Pennsylvania in 1868 gave
Gen. Grunt a majority of over 40,000.
Now, by a system of fraudulent voting,
surpassing the balloting of the Massa?
chusetts troops in Indianapolis in 186i
utterly infamous, indeed-the Grant
candidate for Governor is elected, but by
a majority lurguly reduced. Ohio in
1868 gave tho candidato of tho Republi?
can party u majority of nearly 20,000.
Now that party succeeds by lesa than
iO.000. Thomas A. Hendricks was de?
clared defeated in Indiana in 18GS by
9G1 votes. Now ho is elected by ii ma?
jority nearly us large. There is nothing
in tho recent elections to discourugo us,
despite the boasting of the Grunt party.
It was tho same party that thought lo
sucer down the Cincinnati Convention,
that was jubilant over its frightful and
fatal losses in North Carolina, thal, was
pleased with its Inrgo reductions iu
Maine and Vermont, uud utterly sup?
pressed nil mention of tho olection of
Georgia last week that gave ns 50,000
majority. Wu simply need to gain as
we have in those States, and in Ohio and
Indiana, and tho battle is ours.
The old organization has lost in every
State in which there hus beeu an elec?
tion since Horace Greeley was nomi?
nated. It has only saved itself from
desperate defeat by desperate efforts.
It has had the Secretary of the Treasury,
aud the Treasury itself, at work upon
tho stump and at tho polls. Every de?
vice that mendacity and mouey conld
devise hus been employed. Tho moagre
results to the Grant party of suoh lavish
outlay is a rebuke moro powerful than u
moro conclusive defeat nuder un honor?
able canvass. To succeed as wo have
aguiust such opposition is u victory in?
A few weeks yot remain in which wo
must labor with eveu moro tireless ef?
fort. The people of Indiana believe in
the mission of tho Liberal Republican
party. They accept its platform aa thu
wisest and best over presented by n party.
It has every principle of the old party
worth preserving expressed with rugged
foroe, and it adds a principle that the
cauvass from the beginning of the State
Conventions to tho present time has jus?
tified, that the President of the United
States should not be a candidate for re?
election. The evils and dangers of hav?
ing an army of 60,000 office-holders aud
20(1,000 serviceable subordinates under
pay of the Government attempting to
oontrol nominations and elections so as
to keep themselves in place, have been
The vital difference between the plat?
forms is something grander than tariffs
or the common placo utterance of parties.
We seek tho universal equality of men.
Freedom and the ballot for the white
mau with the black. We Beek a sub?
stantial peace, a hearty fraternization of
North and South, and a pure civil ser?
vice. For this we fight, aud by this sign
we Bhall conquer. Our effort has beeu
and must be to show the people that we
can better secure these beneficent results
than caa tho old party, burdened with
barnacles, festering with corruption and
permeated with barbarous prejudices.
The duty to which we aro called is as
imperative and honorable as that to
which we responded when the country
needed us as soldiers. Let us conscien?
tiously give ourselves to tho labor before
us, without bitterness, without attempt?
ing to follow the loaders of tho old
party in their disreputable course. They
maj do their worst abusing Liberal Re?
publicans and Liberal Republicanism.
Their venom is harmless.
Wo aro lighting for a principle that,
sooner or later, must succeed. Let us
bear ourselves so that we shall deserve
success. They who win success unfairly,
or will struggle only when success is as?
sured, aro alike uuworthy to succeed. A
noble cause demands our service. It is
tho eause of humanity and patriotism.
Our principles are patriotic and unselfish.
Our candidate, Horace Greeley, is thc
typo of mau America delights to honor
the honest, self-made, representativo
mun. Forward, thou, men of Iudianal
With proper effort we ahull win a victory
nobler than that of bloody fields, and
more enduring than monuments.

POOR CAunoTTA.-The saddest event
in the modern history of thrones and
those "uneasy heads that wear a crown,"
is the struggle made by tho unfortunate
Empress Carlotta to save her husband,
Maxamillian, and her failure and loss of
minoh Her health of late has been re?
ported to be failing, but the last advices
contradict the statement, and-shall wo
say unfortunately for her?-tell us that
she may yet live many years. Her mind
is os blank as ever, and no ray of return?
ing reason gives the faintest chanco for
hopo. It is said of her that a great part
of her timo is occupied in sending tele?
graphic despatches to Napoleon III,
whom sho still believes to bo on the
throne, and conversing with the spirits
that she says haunt tho upper ?torios of
the chat eau, whose language she boasts
of knowing, and whose advice she follows.
Now and thou, sho orders a rich toilet to
be made, which she places on chairs and
dummies, and goos through tho cere?
mony of a court reception. lu her eyes,
these dresses and bonnets represent
ladies of France and Mexico. Sho flat
tors some, insults others, and so passes
a part of her time. She never wears
any of those fine toilets, and always ap?
pears in her dressing gowu. Recently
she cut off all her fine hair, and put it on
one of her dummies; nevertheless, she
insists on having ber hair dressed every
morning, and a domestic has to go
through tho ceremony.

DEATH OF "FANNY FERN."-Sara Pay- I
son Purton, popularly known aa "Fanny I
Fern," died at her residenoe, in New
York, on Thursday. Though she has
left few enduring literary works, she has
earned with her pen a wide celebrity.
Boru in Portland, Maine, in 1811, she
seems to have passed through a some?
what stormy aud cloudy girlhood and
womanhood, and passod into a mature
life before she mudu un eutrauco into tho
field of literature. Sbo was a descend?
ant of two old Puritan families of Now
England, and, in ooramou with her bro?
ther, N. P. Willis, the well-kuowu poet,
inherited from her father and mother a
largo share of mental power uud genius.
She was educated at Hartford, Conn.,
by Miss Catherine Beecher, and was re?
cognized as a clever young lady, high
spirited and eccentric, and addicted to
mischievous and comical escopades.
Whilo yot young, and soon after leaving
sohool, she married Mr. Eldridge, of
Boston. After tho birth of three chil?
dren, uho was left a widow nnd in sonio
whut embarrassed circtim?tanccs. Of
theso straits came ber first literary ven?
ture, and in 1851 she offered un essay,
signed "Fanny Fern," to ono of the
literary weeklies of Boston. It was ac?
cepted, and acceptable, for tho grout
readiug public immediately demanded
more, uud "Fanny Fern" grew into fame
uud favor. Thoso leullots wore gathered
into a volume with tho titlo of "Fern
Loaves," and had a great sale, no less
than 75,000 copies of tho book having
been sold. "Little Ferns for Fanny's
Littlo Friends," her next book, bail a
.fair salo, and a second scries of the
"Leaves" reached a very largo edition.
lu 1851, har tirst novel, Ruth Hall, ap?
peared. It was not a genial book, and
over its family revelations and allusions
a generous charity draws a vail of for?
getfulness. Ro30 Chuko, published in
1857, was a more 3uuny work, und com?
manded a wider circle of readers than
even the unhappy notoriety of its prede?
cessor had attracted. Tho two novels
were the only cues which "Fanny Fern"
ever published; they provoked much
criticism, and were read by thousands
who sought in their pages tho same
vivacity which had been the charm of
her less pretentious writings.
In 1850, tho subject of this sketch was
married to Mr. James Parton, of New
York city, a historical writer and essay?
ist. Since her marriage, her published
writings have not been voluminous, but
their character has been considerably
modified and improved, compared with,
those of her earlier career. Her re?
mains will be taken to Boston for inter?
THE PICKET LINE PASSED.-By a very
large vote the people of Pennsylvania
hare elected the entire Republican State
ticket anda decisivo Republican majority
in both branches of the State Legisla?
ture. Having with sincere and unfalter?
ing purpose opposed the two chief can?
didates on this ticket, solely in the inte?
rest of tho commonwealth and in tho
firm conviction that they were unworthy
of this distinction, wo yield to the judg?
ment of tho ballot-box, as in duty
bound, entertaining no regrets and prof?
fering no apology for a course honestly
beguu and faithfully persevered in.
Without questioning thc motives of those
who have resolved to perpetuate an
odious local rule-insufferable in its ar?
rogance and most extravagant and costly
in its actions-wo shall bo profoundly
gratifiod if our apprehensions, repeated?
ly uttered, aro not confirmed. Grave
and momentous trusts have again been
con tided to men wo conceive to bo un?
These local oppressor? aro now en?
throned aud entrenched in power. Mr.
Cameron will undoubtedly bo re-elected
United States Senator, armed with new
prerogatives to persecute and to punish.
His iron band will bo laid upon every
independent, spirit in tho State, and he
will again quoto the prestige and wield
the patronage of the President to for?
ward his designs; unless, indeed, Gen.
Grant will do the independent people of
Pennsylvania tho justico to believe that
their protest against this reckless man,
however fruitless nt tho late election, has
sprung from pura and honest motives.
But, in despito of all that may bo said
or done, tho Prejg to-tluy, as in other
days, owes a higher allegiance than the
allegiance to men-au allegiance to
principle, to innato convictions, proved
by experience in the most tumultuous
und trying decade in our history.

sion of whites and colored] have been

By a private letter from Edgefield, we
learn that the colored people voted gene?
rally for Moses, while the whites did not
vote the State ticket, except for Melton.
There is little chance for tho Conserva?

at the Court House will reach 800.

F. Perry has defeated A. S. Wallace for
Congress from tho Fourth District.

Marion. The Bolters cluim a victory in
this County. There were many split
tickets. It is believed that Col. Mullins
is elected to tho Senate.
