Thus Staads our Governor 1 When
wt throw to the brcczo our banner in
tho last campaign, and inscribed
upon its folds tho name of Daniel H.
Chamberlain, as our standard bearer
for Governor of this State, and an
nounced him a* an honest and an up
right man?the man who would re

d?spond iuto which wo had bacn
thrown by corruption, scathing and |

if elected, he would tu.n pure water

nCB8?we were laughed at and scoffed
at, rebuked lor our audacity, and set
upon by white villinns, Mack fillians,
and dirt-eaters, who, in their combina
tions, tried to wipe us out of politics,
life, nnd even the hope of a futuro be
yond the grave. It is strange to us
that we held our own against the ring
that wus formed to crush us, com
posed as it were of many whose
white skins covered black hearts,
and who were too cowardly to jface us
and say, behold thine enemy, but in
tho dark aimed the fatal blow, as they
thought, that would crush riot on
ly us, ljnt those who iu their innocence
live through us, and arc dearer to our
heart than friend or country. No,
not strange, cither. Truth is powerful,
and will prevail. We had friends too;
Bom* who etood in h:gh places,
aud aomo who in their heart of
hearts spake as did ttuth to Naomi.
"The Lord do so to me, and more also,
il aughUbut death part thee and me."
Pure and white, like bay blossoms in
spring time, these acts of friendship
fill the cells of our heart, nnd soften
its throbs, eren to a forgiveness of
our enemies !
Daniel II. ('hnmbcrlain ie Governor
of South Carolina, aud from the sea
board to tho mountains, the shout
In placing befoio our readers the
following ^article from tho Areir* and
Courier ,the leading democratic paper
of the state, we might make a few ex
tracts from the same journal to show
how badly it must have been fooled
onco to ?peak as it now speaks, but.we
''We print, to-day, a batch of good
news from Columbia. 1. Governor
Chamberlain has decided not to sign
the iniquitous thirteen mill Tax bill
for 1875-/6. There will bo no dead
lock. The machinery of the govern
ment will run as smoothly as last
year, when the Tax bill, for 1874-75,
was not passed until the winter. The
General Assembly will, by the time
that t'uey re-assemble, understand the
temper of the people better than they
did when they adjourned last month.
Low faxstion must be had. Those
who are opposed to it will do well to
stand from under. 2. Dennis ot Fur
niture fame, has been removed by
Governor Chamberlain, and Col.
Parmele appointed in his ftead. The
new Superintendent o^ the Penitentia
ry will have no fellow feeling to make
him wondrous kind with thieves or
felons; for he is, we are told, a highly
respectable upright man. although a
late arrival from the North. 3. The
Bonanza men arc desperate enou-'h to
seek for a mandamus to compel the
Commissioners to act. Are they coy?
We doubt it. But when they have
been constrained io serve, if they ever
shall be, the work of plundering the
State will only hare begun. The
United Statin Court has control over
the Bonauui bill, iind that Court is
in con tint iblc.
For the reinoval^of Dennis and for
kiiiiiig of the Tax bill the public
must thank fiov. Chamberlain, who
also; is a', the bottom of the flank
movement on the Bonanza men iu
the Unite 1 States Court. Two years
of such noble work as this will cause
him to he hailed as the saviour of

It is gratifying to watch tho ttcntly
increase of confidence in tho ability of
Governor Chamberlain to reform the
abuses that have cursed South Caroli
na. The people all through the coun
try seem satisfied with the manner in
which the State Government is being
administered, and hope to see her
places of honor and importance thor
oughly cleansed of corruption and dis
honesty, before the close of his term of
office. If ho succeeds?rand we hope he
may?then should all thc'peoplc of this
State ajoin together, and in one voice
thank him for her deliverance. No
State could have been placed in a
more unenviablo situation than that
which ours occupied, previous to the
inauguration of tho present Governor.
She had been dragged us low as the
cormorants, who prospered under Mo
ses, could get her. Her finances were
in a moat deplorable condition, while
her credit went down with the reputa
tion of her native young Governor.
The robbers were daily draining the
Treasury of the'last dollar to be
found in it, which they invested in
property for themselves. Moses was
as greedy as any of tho cr^w, and
with no conscience to cheek him, did
not let a single opportunity to steal
pass by unimproved. Ho robbed in
and out of season, and seemed to find
fiendish pleasuro in endeavoring to
drag down the Slate to the miserable
level of himself. He haefa great many
spites to gratify; an inordinate cupidity
to appease; prolligate and extravagant
notions to be carried out, and he
resolved to use his office to make
accomplishments of all his desires.
With regret, be it said, he partially
succeeded in wreaking his veugeanec
upon South Carolina.
At the close of his office as Gover
nor, tho State's credit was gone, with
a want of confidence in her ability to
pay her debts. The extent of the
flonting debt had not, up to that time,
been 'ascertained, and no one knew
exactly the financial condition of the
State. Tho taxpayers had become
disheartened, ami had lost all hope of
ever huving a better government
under Republican rule
Clovernor Chamberlain, he has
managed affairs so well ;hat the people
arc not only satisfied, but have hopes
of much good resulting to the late at
large, from the statesmanship' dis
played by him, and his devotion to the
pledges of reform uttered by him in
the late campaign.
He watched the General Assembly
at its long session, and vetoed every
bill that was tainted with fraud. .* ml
now, we are assured by the L'm'on
IJeraltl, that Governor Chamberlain
will veto the Supply Bill. If ho
should put a quietus upon this last
swindlo of the Legislature, by vetoing
it, we shall move that meetings be
held at-the Court Houses on sonic sale
day, in eveiy County in the State, and
resolutions of thanks be passed and
forwarded to him. In this act, he will
put himself squarely against the cor
ruptionists and will have to look to
the honest people of the State for sup
port. By all means let us have the
veto and lf?t the thieves, whoso claims
it provides for, whistlo for their
money in vain. It is too much to
make the taxpayers, becauso they are
in a helpless minority, pay evsry
trumped up claim a thief may present
to tho Treasurer.
Tho Aikeu Tribune says if.ihq tax
bill is not signed, we'will not bo able
to pay the interest on the "consolida
tion bonds,*' January, 1876. That
statement is not correct. If the pre
sent tax hill is vetoed, another can
and certainly will be passed by the
20th of December next, and arrange
ments can then be easily made to pay
the interest in advance of the receipts.
There is also another important
feature of the "consolidation bonds
and stocks," that many people do not
notier. It is this: That the "coupons
and interest orders'' arc receivable for
taxes, and, therefore, if the legislature
ever should, in oi:e of its vagaries,
fail to levy a tax to pay them, they
will mid must be received for tho
taxes levied for other purposes, and
interest will thus be paid, though in
an indirect manner. The payment of
the interest on our consolidated debt
is assured, in spite of the legislature.
Col; Dodamead, General Supcrin
tendnnl of the Greenville ami Colum
bia rail-road, will accept our thanks
for a free pass over.,hi* road for the
current year. i
Au anomaly in the rural press of)
tins vStnte is tho Ornngeburg News
and Times. It,has two editors, which is
as it should be if thoy would put more
iu their papor, but the strangest of all
strange things is the fact that that
newspaper has a "manager of]
finance!" There is something hidden
in this matter. The idea of a "man
ager of finance" for a country news
paper is preposterous 1 We want
more light on this matter.?Abbeville
We thought the light of your beauti
ful countinanco, Sir Homphill, wns
sufficient light to lead you to all
knowledge. When you double as we
expect soon to do?we in the size of |
our paper, and ycu in the Bizo of your
bed-stead, you'll And whats "hidden
in the matter.".
Barnwcll County is all in a farmcnt
over the Court House question. The
matter has been referred back to the
people, and in n few weeks a vote
will be given either for or against
Barnwcll.. Blackville seems to have
a great many friends, and it is predic
ted that the Court House will be
brought back to that place. It is
none of our funeral, no matter how it
goes, but it really appears contrary to
all notions of right to take tho Court
House away from the middle of a
County, and plant it oiT to one odge.
The news of the break down in
llcedy river, at Greenville preceded
our arrival at home. We have been
congratulated by friends at oxir narrow
escape. We never would have ven
tu .ed to cross the ford if we had not
been nssured that Speight "big snake"
had cleared the stream of its rocky bed.
