Governor Hampton is in Wash
ington. Whatever may be the
nature;and result of his conference
with Mr. Hayes, it is extremely
gratifying to the peoplo of South
Carolina to mark the enthusiasm
with which their governor has boon
greeted all along the line of railway.
His course through North Carolina
and Virginia was a perfect ovation.
Pyrotecnics, bouquets, huzzas and
hand-shakings overwhelmed him at
every station. It was but a
re-enactment of the scenes of last
fall, when one whole State wont
temporarily into a state of emotion
al insanity, in "hurrahing for Hamp
ton." While much of this enthusi.
asm is due to the personal magnet
ism of Governor Hampton, a large
share of adulation is tendered to him
as the embodiment of the sp'rit of
South Carolina. The peculiar
genius of her people never shone
with greater lustre that it does at
present, and the manner in wmien
the South Carolina Democracy have
horne themselves through the trying
ordeal of the past six months
evokes the admiration of the world.
Hence the ovations to Hampton.
Broken Pledges and Punic Paith.
The true inwardness of the atti
tude of the Southern Democrats in
Congress during the electoral enm
plication, and their co-operation
with the Republicans to defeat the
fillibusters anid ensure the inaugu
ration of Hayes, have at last been
laid bare. Assurances were given
by prominent Republicans that
Hayes would render prompt aid in
establishing the Hampton and
Nqicholls governments. Stanley
Matthews was the confidential coun
sellor of Hayes during the session
of the Electoral Commission ; and
Charlee Foster was the Republican
mnember of Congress from Hayes'
district. Claiming to represent
Hayes, they addressed letters to
senator Gordon and others, guaran
teeing that the people of Louisiana
and South.Carolina would be left
free to administer their own gov..
ernments, and that the troops would
no longer interfere in local aftairs.
Acting upon this pledge, the South
ern Congressmen succeededl in
forcing the completion of the count.
Now, it is asserted that Mat thews
and Foster acted upon their own
responsibility, and Hayes per
onmptorily refuses to consider him
self a party to the agreement, or in
any way bound by it. The South
ern Democrats have learned, too
late, another lesson in Radical
duplicity. In good faith they ful
filled their pledges, at the imminent
risk of shattering their party. They
haeraped no benefit from their
patriotic course. Hayes occupies a
seat covered with fraud, and treads
in the footsteps of his predecessors.
Whil6 the Deniberats have nothing
to be ashamsed of, they will scarcely
repeat the experiment of trusting
to BM4Ical pledges. At the ,same
tlmed isdishonorable in the high..

ate the acts of his friends. It was
publicly known that Matthews and
Foster were managing his case.
He wrote a letter thanking Foster
for his conciliatory speech in Con
gress. He know of the pending
negotiations, and kept silent. All
this binds him too firmly to be ex
tricated by any amount of wriggling
or squirming. Ho must either
promptly recognize Ha ipton and
Nicholls or else lose all claim to
respect. Even now, a fulfillment
of the pledges made for him would
be too late to restore perfect confi
dence in his integrity.
It seems strange that in every
compact made between members of'
the two parties the .Democrats are
cheated. Radicals, from the lowest
marpet-bag functionary in the Re-,
3onstructed States to the Chief
Executive of the nation, scom utter
y devoid of conscience and regard.
oss of the inviolability of a pledge,
iowever solemnly made. The only
iafe way of dealing with them is at
iirin's length. Recognized as
mmeiies, f hey can effect little hmrm.
Treated with as honorable mien,
ley rC dangerous. It is better
or South Carolina to work out her
'edemption in spite of Radicalism,
han by means of it. The days of
:ompromise are over. "A fair field
a no favor," should be the cry.
We want no more pledges from Mr.
Eiayes' friends. Hereafter we must
reat with principals, not with
Hampton with Hayos.
VASHINGTON, March 29.
Governor Hampton, accompanied
by Attorney- General Conner and
Senator Butler, with the committee
of Charleston capitalists, arrived
hare this morning, the welcome to
Hampton from Richmond to this
place being as warm as farther
south. There was no public recep
tion, and the party drove quietly to
Willard's. The following le.ter
was addressed to the President by
Governor Hampton thismornming
Washington, March 29.

The .Bho otan expedition belongsx
to history, though not the most
agreleab~le or glorious episode in the
annals of British India. One little
incident, however, still remains to
be recorded. We cannot, indeed,
vouch for its absolute accuracy,
though it is not only generally
ereoditedl, but it is also credible.
'I hie story runs thus :-Under the
impression that the "little wvar,"
would be fought to the "bitter end"
the government ordered three lakhs
(4280,000 worth) of copper coinage
tobe despatched to the northeastern
frontier for the use of the. troops.
It was forwarded accordingly--a
goodly assortment of half anna and
quarter anna p)ieces, pies and' pice.
The town of Blungporo wvas reached

The objection was not unreasonable
but there was this difficulty in the
way of its reach, that the gunn3
bags had been devoured by insects
or otherwise destroyed, and th<
ci'ppor coins had run together and
become welded into masses. The
cost of their removal to Calcutta om
some other equally absurd roasor
caused the alternative to be adopted
of digging a big hole and burying
the untold riches. Some sort of
