location as being secure from tiie possible

Tennessee and Georgia, with the regions

In point of labor facilities toother very
important element is the manufacture of
artillery. Judge French thought his wss
one of the best places in the entire coun

less than 10.000 skilled laborers, and fully
one half that number are men accustomed

Trying; t Wiggle Oat ar a IMrty
When the Union was detected In its
scandalous wojk of printing a libellous
and scurrilous circalsr in order to secretly
injure Mr. Cable, it adopts the usual
method of a man expecting denunciation,
knowing be dt serves it it begins to abuse
its accuser. By this it thinks to gain
some advattige. The calling of names
will not cloak over its villanous methods.
If the men engaged in this scoundrelly
work against Mr. Cable men who wish
to pass in the community as elements of
decency could have got the dirty job off
their hands without being caught they
would have thanked heaven or tbe other
place for the concealment, and tbey could
nave still walked in open day without
being pointed at as whiteed sepulcbers.
Dirty and damnable as was the piece of
business it bad a will defined object
Cable must be beaten if we sell the rem-
nanvof our souls to do it. " We will steep
our very selves in filth and degradation
to accomplish this thing. Talk to us not
of fairnesi nor manliness, nor decency,
nor reputation we have done with such
the need of the moment must receive
attention by every means known to dis
graceful politics we must elect our man.
Honesty will not do it, then dishonesty
must be our weapon. We will do what
we can to purge ourselve after election,
but the moments now are fleeting and
though dsmnalion be our portion tbe deed
must be done. We will cover ourselves
with slime and surround oursdves with
sickening odors, it matters not.
In this spirit was tbe secret circular
batched each lotter dropping some
vile thing into the stewing pot, like the
witches in Macbeth. This nauseating
mess was to be kept from every eye in
this city except tbe eyes of those who
had a band in its preparation or a pre
vious knowledge of its existence and in
tentions. A copy was to be given those
who could be trusted to countenance or
encourage the dastardly action, and it
was expected that they shoul I keep their
own counsel. Mr. Cable nor his friends
were not to know of itsexistence.and.as a
consequence, they could not contradict
its treacherous falsehoods. Those who
hail received these vile sheets and pond
ered over them would be again ap
prnscbed, and if they felt inclined to dis j
believe such outrageous statements the
plotters could assure them that they were
correct, and would point to the fact in
confirmation of the assertion that Mr. Ca
ble nor his friends had ni.ver denied tbem.
Such in direct language was the means
employed by these hirelings to wound
and even slay, if nece;siry. a highly re
spectable fellow townsman aman whose
chsracter is irreproachable, and who
would scorn to lend himself to a discred
itable action, no matter what the provi
calion. It was known that not a word of
this shameful sheet would be believed in
this city, but other places must be sup
plied, and peihaps the end might be ac
accomplished. It was tbe pitiable excuse of the horse
thief. Belter it would have been to have
made an open acknowledgment that as
the last hope bad gone they were driven
to it. To the sin of theft, the most tin
pardooat le theft of all the stealing of
character they add another sin, that of
vicious lying. But the one blackened
act begot tbe other.
What a sorry plight the Union pitched
itself into In the attempt at justification.
just as if a blackguard deed like that
would under any pretense admit of jus
tification. It barely mentioned the dis
graceful ma'.ter and in a weak wav. The
Union attempted tbe day after tbe pub
lication in the Arocs of this s If con
victing screed to justify the act, but Ihe
attempt at self-exoneration had no
strength or soul.then it left it and went a
thousand miles away to change t'ie sub-
jsct. It spoke of corruption and
bulldozing in the opposite party, lu the
name of righteousness, hov could it have
uttered the words. Corruption? With
its own carcass reeking with fillb; wiih
the bands of every aider and abettor
steeped in corruption. Not a year, not a
month now yet a day separated from the
crowning infamy and still it had the har 1-
ihood to speak of corruption. Could ft
not have spurted out a defiance and Told

still bearing the face of Jezsbel.
What evil thing was it that led the Ui-
in to s ly this is not South Carolina, and
that republicans c.ou'.d not, if they had
the disposition, compete with their op
ponents in"Trihery and debauchery, and
that they proposed to explore the tniiiuir
tous methods, and more to Mm aam
purpose? In what liquid was the brain
steeped that prompted such words?
Was it undue excitement or a desiier
a'.e effort to plunge into something any
thing in order to rid itself of the t tiding
effects of being found employed in such
slimy work? Whatever it was it showed
a dispairing attempt to keep out of sight
the very fact it was touching upon with
so much reluctance.
Short as were the remarks conoeroiug
the miry buaiuess it closed bysajing that
"the Arocs is to be thanked for publish
ing tbe circular, for it is desired that it
reach every v. t -r in tbe district." Could
it not see tbe dimensions of its own
barefaced lying? Could it feel no
touch of conscience in thua
piling up iniquity upon its own head?
Were its senses so completely dulled by
fraud and festering impurities that it
could not see the effects of its own words?
It was glad the A rods published its
atealtby circular. Wiiat a barefaced iiel
It did not publish tbe circular ilseir. Is
