WINNSBORO, 8. C.
Saturday, March 3, 1877.
It. MEANS DAVJS, Editor,
JNO. 8. REYNOLDS, Associate Editor.
A, Walhngton telegran says,
"Cbamberlain 'will be adlvised to
'coignpl e )fogylature, have the
vote canvassed, and Hampton do
elaied. governor. This is thought
to be the 'moat 'agreeable settlement
of the dilfculty."
Tihe inMug'ira'ti'o' of Hayes in the
city which bears the name of Wash
ington, and the fact that L owes
his position to the frauds of Madi
Pon Wells, place in strong contrast
the early and the latter days of the
Republic.
The bulldozing of Justice Wright
will not help the Chamberlain crew.
The failure of the two Justices to
agree dbes'not in ary way affect the
fact that Hamptou roecived a majori
ty of the votta cast at the Nov i')er
oledtion, iand is therefore the legally
chosen governor of South Carolina.
Ibde New York herald does not
think that any member of the Ele:
toral Commission will accept a Cabi
not p )sition from H tyos, ns this
would not lio in 'accordance with
propriety. None of the immortal
Eight have at yet evinced the slight
est regard for propriety, or even
decency.
Three Radiral newspapers have
given up the, ghost in Florida since
the inaugurtion of Drew. The New
Orleans Republican appears semi.
occaIiOnally'oily ; while the Union -
ferald is reported to he in. articuo
molts. The "starve 'em out policy"
is working well, Coning events cast
their ahadows before. The Radical
leaders w' Boon follow their organw.
The ReM 'Phoebe Hanaford has
been dejlied from, the pulpit of
the f!irst Universa id4 Cliiire in
Jerey City after having beeipastor
for oventwo 'ears. The fact that all
}tn l mr1 Ic'y'.r1I" 1:e,'Yvl(Ytl~ei8''Aales "1ere udnit'
moius for her expJiemn, creates a
iurilsa that she might have been
too'successful an evangelist of the
r,orpel of k-ve. P1 ceho holds the
fortihowever, and will form a second
chuich in the same city.
'A Bulldozed yudge.
The long-expected decision of the
Supreme Cour t on the gubernatori..
al question has not yet been made
We extract from the Columbia
Regier df the 2nd inst. the follow
ing W&couibt of thie action of the
Co ui:-.
The air wns full of tuimors last
DigbI4about the anticillated decision
of tlog Supremie Court in the Tilda
Nor3xs 4ab'eas corpus case, which is
looked for to-day. One rumor was
to the ee'ect that Wright had con
curred with Justice Willard. and
tha*.a decision would be reached
to--day, declaring Governor Hamp-.
ton, the lawful govem nor of the
State. , AnoTher and later one was,
that alter Wright had concurred inl
the denision,uirrived at by Justice
Willard, he hadh filed a dlissenting
opunn und left the city immediately

only *eowe heard themny and do not

in the Siipreme Court after which

cality which has been practised to
corspel Justice Wright to violate
his toathi Qofelece and render a decis

Ius~.co teio of the law.
Slhie *rfting the above, we have
obtehed 'Pogeession. of the docui

and Gileav s. i the city, and their

which will be listened to by so many
people to-day :

I concur in the above.
3. J. WaronT, A. J.
This order was mado 27th Febru
ary, 1877.
Wright yesterday filed with Mr.
Boozer the following memorandum,
together with his last opinion
"Having attached my name to an
order discharging the petitioner in
this case on the 27th day of February,
1877, after more mature deliberation,
believing that the order should
not have been made, I now
ereby revoke, recall and can
cel said ord r, so I tr as my
signature may have given it eanetion
and suIi.lstitnto the foregoing opin-.
ion in its stead.

Gen. Kerslia-.v's Position.
1iditore Columii a Register .
The purport of a few remarks ad
dressed by m to the people of Lan
caster, at i meeting of the citizens as
sembled there on the 11th February,
has been misrepresented in a re
ported interview between Judge
Mackey and a correspondent of
the New York herald, and as it
has appeared in your columns, I beg
the privilege of making the correc
tion.
Thme meeting was called to heir
Judge Mackey's account of his visit
to Mr. Hayes, and after hearing
from him assurimeos of the most
positive charateor that Mr. Hayes
would be declared elected, and that
the Domnocratts of the South might
assure themselves that his adminis
tration would be just and kindly to
the South, I was called out by the
meeting and addressed them briefly.
I expressed my pleasure at hear
ing the cheering assurances so sol
e:nnly given by Judge Mackey
of the kindly purposes of Mr. Hayes,
and expressed my confidence in
those assurances. That as an
Amorican citizen, I felt humiliated
and abamsedthat the American Con,
gress, tho great Legislative Council
of the country, should have felt
itself compelled to confess before
time world that it was too partisan
and corrupt to ascertain fairly the
required by the constitution, but
having so confessed, they had per
h1ps done the next best thing when
they constituted a Commission that
h'ad received the confidence of the
country. That I did not doubt that it
would fai- ly decide the question,
and that it must. therefore, declare
Mr. T'dden elected. I begged to
assure the Republicans predsent that
in that event thme rights and interests
of all honest citizens wvould be main -
tained, and the glory and honor, the
peae, ropertyand happiness of
th onry prooted by his wise,
just and benelicent administration.
That if, after a fair hearing and in
ves tigaitioni, the Comanmission should
decide in favor of Mr. H-ayes, I for
one wvould acquiesce in the decision.
That peace wvas of all things moss
necessary to our plell, and war
most 'to be deprecated, and I believ
ed civil war was the only alternative.
This is the very substance and sense
of my remarks upon the subject on
the occasion referred to. My hopes
ap)pear* now to have been disappoint
ed,.and I tind myself, wvith the ma
jority of the American people, a
victim of nslalced confidence, as I
have often been. The Commiission
has not determined fairly and justly,
judleirdly, as I expected.

A Negro Watch Meeting
The New York Sun has a long ac.,
count of a negro watch meeting some
wvhere in the South, and it contains
a most extraordinary sermon, from
which the following extracts are
made:
I'll tell you a little allegoric or
speech by do figger'. Truth and
Lie started ou t for to trabble. They
stopped to drink at de ribber ob
Jordan. r.uth wos thinking no
svil, b)ut Lie pushed him, and he fell
in andl was drowned. Lie got .out,
stole Truth's boots, 'and, meetin' a
cullud pusson who was rootin'
round whar he had no business, en
tered into him and sot up his habita
tion. So Lie has lowed to dwell
along wid cnllud folks ever since.
It's my bisness, to pint out dlese
thiings to Sense you of de tricks
of do debble. Lie den sowed his
seeds among us cullud folks. I

whiskey. Do mule h( seed do angel,
and he kicked up andknocked Ebe
nozer Heels over head, and he diapt
his whiskey bottle. Belzebub )he

put it in his coat tail pocket- -Yor
see, lie found it, and dat iiaktjiit

and drappod him it do don where
Daunel, wos.
I neber. beard dit Dannel et
drunk, but Scriptor tells us Noah
was shy of water, kept a bottle of
Loosianner ruin under his bed. Some
colored proachers say Noah woe de
'casion of we black filks in dies wise:
Noah had one gal clild named Cane
Anny, a sassy dissipated gal, wlid
would steal her daddv's bottle wheni
lie won asleep and drink his rum.
He kotch her one day tipsy and
makin' a spectacle of herself. Do

she turned right black in do face. I
don't pend much on dat, kate it
can't be proved Cane Ann's head got

tion of nature--dey growed jis so.

Dere was a small colored man namn
Nigger Demos. Ho kept publi(
