THE STALWART Republicans are

THE NEw TohK Herald seems

MAJ. T. WV. W~ooDwARD in a card
published to-day withdraws from

no fault of the writer, delaye.
The card speaks for itself. Papers
in this Congressional district are

THE cABLE REPC RTTS that France is
drawing large sums of gold from

the gold men gravely annonne
that silver has declined two and

gold had risen in consequence of
the demand for it? Why should

WITHOUT IN A}iY way prejudging
the circumstances connected with
the recent unfortunate homicide at
Ridgeway, we are impelled to say
that the uso of deadly weapons is
becoming entirely too frequent in
Fairfield. For a time this county'
was one of the most peaceable in!
the State, But at the last ternm of
eourt there was one murder trial
and a trial for assault with a dead
ly wveapon (in both of which, how
ever, the defendants were held
blameless), wvhile in the p)ast week'
there have been a stabbing affray
and a homicide. Wheon life be
comes too cheap in any community,
no one is safe, For the sake of the
good name of the county we hope
that thero will be no similar occur
rences for a long time to come.
- The Radioals,
'i'he Radical Committee of:
Charleston county have cald for
'a Ointy Convention to send dole
gates to a 'State Convention in!
This shows that the Radical party
is not dead, and that in the lowt r
counties, if not in all, the Radicals
will make super-human efforts to
carry the Legislature and the
county tickets. They will succeed
in some localities, unless the D'mo
cratic party throughout the State
inaugurates such a spirited cam
paign that its influence will be felt
in the strong Radical counties. A
desperate contest will also bo waged
in the first, second and fifth Con..
gressional districts. Democrats
must not fall asleep in fancied
security that the ladicals are con
verted simply because they make
no opposition to hampton. This
is an evidence of Radical astute
ness. A full State ticket nominaat
ed by them would arouse the
Democrats to a enipaign similar
to that of 1876. But by making
no conspicuous effort, tho Radicals
hopo to steal a march on the
Democrats and capture the Legis
lature. This design need only be
appreciated to bo defeated.
Whether these tickets be put in the
field depends entirely upon the
sloth or supineness of the Democ
racy. They have the matter in
their own hands.

The Fame of the State at Stake --How

The people of South Carolina,
while and black. are fortunato in
the possession of a man like Governor
Hampton, who is not only just sud
honorable t.;mself, but has the
conage to tel his people the truth.
He is perfectly right in what he
told them. South Carolina is on
her trial, and it is quite possible, if
her people permit the baser s-."tt of
politicians to control the :lie ms,
