R. MEANS DAVIS, Editor,
JNO. S. REYNOLDS, Assoclato Editor.
Wh1en Clamberlain camle to South
Carolina he brought his wordly
goods in a carpet-bag. Vhieni lhe
left South Carolina, six street cars
were required to transport his bag
gago through Charleston. This tells
tho tale of his career.
Whittemore ha11s obtained "ilefi
nito leave of absence from the Sen
ate on account of siclness in his
family." This means that the coma
mnittoos who are investigating him
have gotten upon so hot a trail that
the reverend thief thinks it best to
floo while he is yet free from arrest.
lie has gone to meet Lcslie. and
South Carolina will never see him
again except in obedience to a re
qusition on the governor of Massa~
Chamberlain, who protested all
along that he was urging his claim
to the governorship only to defend
the rights of the down-t rodiein
African, has picked limiself up mid
returned to Maassachue-wtts as soon
as he is deprived of the loaves aud
fishes. 11n1d his philaniithiropy been
sincere, he would, in (lefeat, have
remained in the State to rally tlie
')arty for the future. But lhe cnn
squeezo no money from t-he colored
mni now, and he leaves him to his
'T'he Uin ion- IIJrald charges that a
ring is alternately bulling and hear
ingthe Stato bonds by tinkering
withi legislation concerning pa1ymuent
-of interest on the imblic debt. Now
the Un ion-.leraldl is very poor aus
thority, but the fact exists that
there have been rings in former
times, and it would not be amiss for
the pOople to look into the matter
now. We sCo nothing wrong on the
surface in the course pursued by the
Logislature in regard to the debt
but it must be remembered that
overutinc 3 the days of the he('at hen
Chince, the smile that is childliko
and bland is sometimes used, to
conceal the ways that are dar1k.
II ~It will be remembecreds that last
year when the attempt was maude
to impeach Judge Mackey, a eoloredl
woman named Mahala De~ral~en
reid( figured as piroseentrix for
alleged inljtustie de( her by the
Juidgo. Chamberlan took up the
cudlgels in behalf of Judge Mackey,3
11 mand his organ, the Union-/Ihrad,
-published a highly llils artice
oharging Mahal a Deiaraffonrid with
being a person of very bad charac
tor. Mahala's tender sensibilities
wo're wounded, and she siud the
veracious pap)-organ for damages.
It was developed that Chamberlin
and -Cardozo 'were the propricors
of that delectable sheet ;and they
wvere made partises defendant. The
.caso 'has never been brought to
trial, but Justice. alias Mahala De
GOrafoenreid, noveor slept. When it
'was rumored that the ex-Governor
'vas packing his carpet-.bag to leave
hie was compelled to give security
.to appear. The .Register of Tues
'~ .day contains a joint card from
Chanmberlaini and CIardozo, alleging
tthat t'he article in question appeared1
'without tho sanction, either of
Themselves, or of the editor in chief.
They give the best character to
Mahala and testify to a high appreo
Ciationi of her worth. What addi
tional solatium was given in the
way of filthy lucre has not transpir's
'4 (id. it is worthy of note that the
iast nct of the exGovernor before
leaving the Stte was the payment
of damtages to a colored woman for
a waxng donie to her. Mahmala may
now rest coniteni.
It is reported that the Mormons are
-organizin~g secretly to resist the
United States authorities inI case ani
att( mpt) is madoe to arrest Birigham
Young aind other leaders for trial for
complicity ill thme Mountain Meaidows
On Monday, for tl' first time
Since the hideous mockery of re
constructiol was foisted upon the
State, the proper'ty an d intelligence
of Fairfield county was successful
at the hallot-box. And now for the
first time the people will have rep.
resentatives ill the LTegislaitire, of
wht1omn they are not aslamled. I )ur,
ing ten long years the property
holder anid the white man of Sout h
Carolina had no rights that the Re
)uliicall irty vils bould to re
splect. "Unsernpunlous dtenu1tgogu;es
tual plunderers wtorking" luon the
fears, the supeist.ition, the igno

despotism glm 1.11 people of the
State into the very dust. But their
day is past. Decency once more
rules, and the difle'rent ele(ments of
society will now sink or rise each to
its proper level.
