It seems difficult for our people in
this section to get rid of thc sharpers.
It has been clearly demonstrated that
we have enough bad men of our own
raising in South Carolina, so that we
do not need to import them from
*other sections of thc country, who
arc worse than our* home production.
But they will come as long as they
can make it pay to impose them
selves upon the people. Many of
the rogues come South to winter, who
have other chosen resorts during thc
summer. Wc arc informed on the
best of authority, that a set of gamb
lers traveling upon the Northeastern
and Savannah railroads during thc
last winter, were known on these
routes to have won in gambling and
taken from our unsuspecting citizens
and others, between thirty and forty
thousan.tHlolfiusT~and they aro again
" 'JtP*work "on"these routes. '"So'ver^
great was thc extent to which this
was carried lost year that thc rail
road companies had notices put up ii:
the cars warning the passengers not
to accept oilers to play at cards. But
all the measures they could usc (lid
not put a final stop to this game of
the sharpers. They go in gangs, and
play and win money from each other
and by that means draws others into
it, and those who venture arc as sure,
to be caught as thc silly fiy who goes
into tho pretty parlor of tho spider.
These traveling scourges arc well
trained in their business, and know
bow to win money from the unsus
pecting. Let thc public be on their
guard against them, and sturve them
out. It is said these some gamblers
deal in counterfeit money. It is re
? ported that at some ^f thc recent cir-'
cub exhibitions in our State, parties
were selling counterfeit*money for ten
cents on thc dollar. Tho law should
be rigidly enforced against all sifch
pests in the community. They
should learn at least, that the South
is no place for them. Let them bc
put where they will bc obliged to
carn'an Honest living.

MK. EDITOR : - Notwithstanding
the prejudice of our people against
evey thing Northern, they cannot hut
commend your ?troits in behalf of
honesty in officials. Hut our people
must bo aware that they are, in a
mcasuro, responsible for all thc fraud,
corruption, dishonesty, poverty that
has oppressed us for thc last six
years,. Tho "masterly inactivity,"
and stand-aloof-policy1, so much ad
vocated just previous to the constitu
tional convention of 18G8, sowed the
seed, the bitter fruits of which we
hove been renping ever since. Such
was the prejudice, (strengthened* by
such advice as this) that but few hon
orable or honest men dared, in the
face of public opinion, to become one
of the many required in our legisla
tive halls. As*.& t-cbnscqucnco thc
majority of thc State and county offi
ces were lil?Oil by tlhihoncst and. cor
rupt raen, who sought them for self-,
agrantlisemeut, ami who used as a
weapon against us, this very preju
dice and stnnd-off-poliey to obtain
thc su tirages of thc blacks.
'Vigilance slept. We were "mas
terly inactive." lt was suicidal ; hut
let us hope that our people will profit
by thc lesson.
Brought suddenly from slavery,
poverty,Ignorance, to liberty, what
?l.ould wc have expected of thc ne
gro? That he should know and con
line himself to that "middle point be
tween thc two extremes of licentious
ness and slavery in which true Libe?
ty consists?" lt is absurd. '.Des
potism degrades and demoralizes thc
human mind ; and although she at
length forces men on a just attempt,
to recover by violence, those rights
that by violence were taken + away,
yet that deprivation superinduced by
despotism, renders men unlit for a
rational exercise ol'those civil rigltts
: with which they have been" invested,
At such a-crisis, to expect that any
people should keep the strict,** un
bending path of rectitude and reason,
without-deviating into private rapine
or public wrong, were as wisc as lc

straight line "immediately on being
released from his trammels, after

Thc people clamoured for self-gov
ernment-and they obtained it ; but
at thc same time the colored people
were invested with the right of suff
rage. They were ignorant, uneduca
ted, and as a consequence were led
by demagogues, unprincipled knaves,
who tfscd them as a mask for their
own corruption. ^
Hut thc\-, themselves,- soon saw
the necessity of, and demanded what

"The Lord WM Provide"
A city missionary, one Saturday
night, was going home with a haskel
of provisions on lu's arm. Meeting ii

any families moved in thc bounds of
