COLUMBIA. S. C.
Saturday BLorninsr, October 19,1872.
For President of the United States.
HOR&CB ?UEELRY, or New York.
B. GRATZ BROWN, or Missouri.
Our Duty in til? Presidential Race.
Our State election is over and the way
)B open for ns to take part in the con?
test between Greeley and Grant, as wo
may doom to bo best for our Stato and
for our country. Thero is no sort of
question that a vast majority of our con?
servative oitizons aro in favor of Greeley
ami r?conciliation, and it is high time
that an eleotoral ticket should be put in
the Hold. The sentiments convoyad in
the Cincinnati platform are ours. Wo
believe in them honestly and sincerely,
and we can see no reason why we should
not openly advocate them. Reconcilia?
tion is the idea which is bound eventu?
ally to win, because it is right in itself,
ls true patriotism and is the crowning
neoessity of the period. Greeley is the
exponent of reconciliation. He is the
friend of the South in that be is the
representative of friendly re-union, and
our plain duty ia to support him. It is
right, and it is also expedient.
What Gen. Grant may do in the f u
future, if be is re eleoted, we do not
know. Ho claims that he is for peace.
His party claim that they are for peace.
Bat they claimed the same thing four
years ago, and they have disappointed
ibo expectations of evory intelligent
American citizen who trusted their fair
promises. The reconstruction of tho
South, under Grant, has been a misera?
ble . failure, and there is no question
about it. Tho governments of the
Southern States, established and main?
tained under the auspices of the national
authority at Washington, have been the
moat corrupt and disgraceful of the age,
or of any age. They are regarded on all
Bides as a "disgraoe to civilization."
Through their instrumentality $200,000,
000 of debt have been heaped npon the
Southern States, more than double what
they formerly owed, and there is not a
doilir of benefit to the States to be
shown as a consideration for it.
The scrapings of the earth have been
made our Governors and our Congress?
men, and our men of public position
generally. A combination of vice and
ignorance has ruled the publia counsels.
The thing cannot be sustained. It is
radically wrong, and the good sentie of
the American people will oorroot it. The
Liberal movement is a protest against
this outrage, and it. must prevail. The
whole strength of the regular Radical
movement, headed by Grant, is iu hit
individual popularity and tho strong sec?
tional feeling of a part of the Northern
people. Grant is running this time en?
tirely upon his own muncie, as the suc?
cessful conqueror of the Southern re?
bellion, us it is considered ot the North,
In itself, his administration bas been ?
complete failure, both in its foreign anc
its domestic policy.
Financially, the affairs of governmenl
have been managed tolerably well. Thc
receipts from direct taxation and from
the tariff have been large, and a portioi
of them have been applied to the redno
tion of the publio debt. Outside o
this, General Grant's administration hai
been more defective than any of its pre
decessore, and can have no olaims tc
popular support. As being the rep re
sentative of reconciliation, re-union anc
reform, Greeley undoubtedly has tho in
side track, and there needs but a cou
rageoos and combined effort on the par
of the Conservative elements to insure
As true and honest citizens, above th?
influence of corrupt power, and not tc
be bought by gain, we must vote fo:
Greeley. Upon the Executive Commit
tee of the Democratic party and th?
representative of the Liberal Republi
can party in the State devolve the re
Bponeibility of putting ont an eleotora
ticket, and wo hope they will now do s<

ELECTION SUMMARY.-The latest re?

Wallace, for Congress, carries Fairfield
County by about 1,200 majority over
Governor Perry, this being a gaiu of 300
for the Dem?crata aa compared with the
lojt ?lection. Returns from all the boxes
are not yet iu.
It is estimated that Tomliuson's ma?
jority in Anderson County will be about
600. The County tickets were out, and
Featherston, (Democrat,) John Cochran,
(Republican,) and Wilson, (Independ?
ent,) candidates have probably been
eleoted to the Legislature. There were
about 2,650 white, and 1,480 colored,
votes polled. Perry, for Solicitor, gets
a majority of about 1,000 in this County.
Wallace has a majority of ubout 300
over Governor Perry for Congress in
Chester. The whites polled a very slim
vote, and generally voted forTomliosoa.
It is probable that the legislative ticket
of York County will be composed of
three Radicals and one Conservative-a

SAD OCCURRENCE.-We learn that on
Monday last, Mr. Erasmus Kurviu lost
one of his children-a little boy-in a
very distressing manner. The little fel?
low, iu some way, got caught in a cotton
gin and was torn to pieces. His father
was absent from home at the time at?
We also learn that Mr. William Wilds
got his hand badly mangled, uno day
last week, while feeding a gin.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT.-On yesterday
morning Lieutenant Weston, of the
Seventh Cavalry, whilo engaged in drill?
ing his troops, was seriously injurod by
falling on his sabre, tho point of whiob
entered the left arm-pit, penetrating a
depth of two or three inches. The ac?
cident resulted from the horse he was
riding rearing up and the saddle turning
from its proper position. Tho hurt is
quite severe, yet hopes aro eutortaiued
that no fatal result will ensue.

FIRE IN SPRINGVILLE.-Wo are in?
formed that the gin house of Mr. E. J.

sixteen bales of cotton, were destroyed
by fire on Wednesday morning last,
about 7 o'clock. The gin was ia motion
at tho time, and the fire was first disco?
vered ia the li?t room. The oause is
aot definitely known, but suspicious

THE ELECTION.-The election passed
off quietly yesterday ia this place. At
au early hour tho colored people began
to pour ia from the country, and were
met by "strikers" from both the "Bolt?
ers" and "regular" tickets, both parties
working diligently. The contest seems
to be pretty well divided at this preciaot

Incipient Civil Wnr In Arkaniaa-Th?
The news wa aro receiving through
onr special correspondence of the trou?
bles in Arkansas gives rise to grave ap?
prehensions that the bloody drama there
is spreading and becoming intensified.
The immediate cause of these disorders
and tho details of their development
have been given in our correspondence
from Arkansas, and it is unneoessary to
recapitulate them. They arose from po?
litical conflicts, engendered chiefly by
unscrupulous carpet baggers, 'and have
culminated in an incipient wnr between
the white and black raoes.
The statesman whoso remains were
given to the earth at Auburn on Monday
first pronounced, we believe, those omi?
nous words-the "irrepressibleconflict."
They wero uttered while Mr. Soward
was a Senator of the United States, aud
when he was leading the anti-slavery
movement in this country. He did not
care, probably, to look beyond tho abo
lition of slavery. He was content to
leave the consequences to tho future and
to the wisdom and sense of right of the
Amerioan people. It is proper to say
here, ia justioe to the memory of the de?
ceased statesman, that, having brought
tho irropressiblo conflict to the end he
had in view-the freedom of the negroes
-he became conservative, and endea?
vored to produce harmony between the
two races in the South. Those who fol?
lowed Mr. Seward in the control of pub?
lic affairs were more radical. They were
not contented with emancipating the
negroes, giving thom the suffrage, and
securing to them, by amendments to the
Constitution and through the law, all
the rights and privileges that white citi?
zens enjoy, but were resolved, for politi?
cal objects, to virtually mako the blacks
tho ruling power in the Southern States.
It is this policy which has produced the
fearful state of things in Arkansas, which
has led to the unblushing official rob?
bery and demoralization in South Caro?
lina, Georgia, Louisiana, and other
States, and which threatens to bring on
a war of races at no distant day through?
out the South generally. No other ci?
vilized State in modern times has exhi?
bited Buch a speotaole of o Annul villainy
and degraded practices as have been wit?
nessed in South Carolina under negro
rule and that of the white carpet-bag?
gers, who. are the allies of the negroes
against the people of their own race and
blood. I The orgies at tho State capital,
Columbia, among the negro men und
women and their white allies, the trading
in votes of the Legislature through de?
graded colored women, and tho plunder
of the Treasury and tax-payers, have not
been exceeded in the black republic of
Hayti, and that is Baying a great deal.
So in other Southern States demoraliza?
tion has grown rank in proportion to
the negro population and its influence
ia the local governments. And how
could it be otherwise? The most intel?
ligent and capable people have been os?
tracised, and the most ignorant have
been made their political masters. Un?
scrupulous and needy adventurers from
tho North have, under the fostering oare
of the Radical Government at Washing?
ton, pandered to the passions and preju?
dices of the ignorant blacks, and have
thus sown broadcast the seeds of race
animosity and discord. While wo are
not disposed to believe that either the
Administration or the majority of the
dominant Radical party in or ont of
Congress wished to see this deplorable
state of things, it is evident that their
policy has brought it about. To secure
the negro vote at all hazards, and, if ne?
cessary to accomplish that, to alienate
the Southern blacks from tho whites,
was the object. Tho politicians only
looked to the present and left the future
to tako care of itself, if even a war ol
races should bo the result.
The irrepressible conflict, then, hoi
taken another shape. It is not now e
question of slavery or of equal political
rights, but which race shall rule in thc
South. Indeed, it has beea and is stii
a question of governing tho country
through pandering to and controlling
tho negro vote. No such issue ought tc
have been made. The material interesti
of tho blacks and whites in the South
and therefore their political objects ant
affiliations, aro, or should be, identioal
This issue of race antagonism, forcee
upon the Southeru States by the Radi
cals, is full of mischief and can only enc
disastrously. We begin to see the con
sequenoes in Arkansas. If wo look a
the history of other countries where th?
negroes have acquired self-government
or where they have been a pr?domin?t
ing element, either b.?* being in a ma
jority or by some wbito faotion usinj
them as allies, ruin and demoralizatioi
have inevitably followed. Such bas beei
the case in Hayti, ia St. Domiogo, ii
Venezuela, in some of the Central Ame
rican States, and everywhere, in fact
where the blacks have obtained, direct!;
or indireotly, the political power. On
of tho most significant indications of tb
conflict of races in the South, and of i
more bloody conflict that threatens in th
future, IB the numerous and wide-spreai
secret olubs and other organizations o
the negroes. Most of them are political
and all have somo political bearing
Many are of a semi-religious character
or rather are made so for tho pretext o
dissolate orgies, mixed with tho wildes
fanaticism. In Richmond, Ya., thor
aro not less, probably, than 100 of thes
oath-bound olubs or societies of bot!
sexes. They are becoming genere
throughout tho South. Through thee
and other means the negroes from on
ead of the South to the other, ignoran
as they may be, keep up a sort of myst
cal and universal communication. If w
would prevent the conflict that is grow
ing up between the two races, and whicl
indeed, may soon becomo irrepressible
the polioy of the Government mast b
ohanged toward the South. Lot c
avoid the horrors of St. Domingo, on
let poaoe, harmony and good fueling I
encouraged between the negroes and til
whites in the South, that garden an
beautiful section of our common coui
try. But this can uover bo attained if
our politicians continue to niako ono
raoe a separate political element aud
array it against the other.

AN EVANGELICAL ASSOCIATION CREATING
A SENSATION IN CINCINNATI.-Tho Com?
mercial published a sensation, on the
15th, in the proceedings of tho day pre?
vious of the Evangelical Ministerial As?
sociation, in which the subject of crimi?
nal abortion- was introduced nud dis?
cussed. Rev. Dr. Hatfield, of St. Paul's
Methodist Episcopal Church, formerly
of Chicago, and somewhat famous for
his terrine onslaught on. the theatres,
called uttention to the appalling preva?
lence of criminal abortion by respectable
American women. He affirmed tba'
there was not a block in Cincinnati that
did not contain women who murdered
their unborn children and thought it no?
thing. They carno to churoh, he said,
and to the sacraments with bands stained
with the blood of the unborn innocents.
He called upon tho ministers present to
look the evil io the face, nnd oonfer to?
gether as ministers of God, as members
of society, and as parents, for the best
menus to check the evil and save Ameri?
can society und American life from de?
struction. He stated that upon inquiry
and investigation he found that pny.si
cians were importuned every day to pro?
duce abortions by tho ladies of the
highest standing, and gave au instance
of a wealthy and influential lady whom
her physician iu vaia urged to abandon
the purpose; for in reply to all his argu?
ments and persuasions she said, "I
don't oare; if you don't do it I'll do it
myself, for my husband don't waut any
more children, and neither do I." Dr.
llutlield cited the Roman Catholic
Church as setting an example of watch?
fulness over its people in this respect, KU
much HO that ho, as a Protestant jminis
ter, stood abashed and silent beforo tho
Catholics, ho said. And even German
infidels were raising more ohildreu in
this country than auy other people in it;
and if something was not done to pre?
vent destruction of foetal life among the
American people, the government of the
country would eventually pass into the
hands of foreigners.
Rev. Granvillo Moody, of the samo
churoh, and Rev. Henry D. Moore, of
the Cougregatioual Church, affected not
to believe tho statements, but the former
Anally acknowledged that there was
something iu them, but it was essential
to bo guarded in expression, as there
was a reporter present.
The thing has produced a genuine
sensation and made the assembled reve?
rends look at each other as if the bottom
bad been knocked out of things. The

spirators shot and others condemned to
imprisonment for life. Fifty of the
Cubans are awaiting trial. The cigar

ministration under the Presidency of tho

budget without increasing the import of
export duties, and meet the whole defi?

item of the new taxation will be the im?
position of $24 on eaoh slave, which will
