Sam Lee's Slanders.
General Hagood, by request of
Governor Hampton, has given a de
tailed and succinct account of the dis
turbance that took place in Sumter on
Hampton's Day, and effectually dis
poses of Sam Lee's tale which so arous
ed the virtuous indignation of lIayes
and Devens. The riot can in no way
be brought within the purview of the
tiotorious Section 5620. In the morn
lug the ladicals and the Democrats
held meetings nearly a quarter of a
mile apart, and neither party inter
fered with the other. After both
meetings had adjourned a large num
ber of individuals of both races hap
pented to meet in the town, and hlere
an altercation occurred between a
hoary-headed old Rladlical, namcd
Coghlan, and a number of young men.
Although matters looked serious for a
wvhile, tile moderation of General
Hagood, Superintendent Thompson
and other Democratic leaders, i nflu
enced the whites and prevented a
collision. But onme peCrson was in
jured, a negro who resisted arrest by
the police for disorder. T1heo whole
disturbance was just such a one as
arises periodically in all portions of the
United States during times of excite
ment. If tihe peop)le of the North wish
to hear the truth they can read Gener
al Hlagood's statement, and the letter
of General Kennedy to Congressman
Blackburn, witht profit to themselves.
If they are still determined to wave
the bloody shirt, no amount of truth
will convince themn. Devens is turn
ig the same old1 crank that ground
out outrages for is p)redecessors,
Williams and Taft, while the material
ho has to work upon is still more
Iimlny thapi theirs.
The solo cause of the present p)oliti
eal troubles in South Carolina and tihe
slanders of the Northern press arises
from misplaced clemency on the p)art
of the D)emnoeratic administratIon of
our Stato. When the p)ublic archives
wereo overhauled, evidence was pro
cured to cbnviet every Rladlical who
had been in office, from Patterson
down to the corn field legislators. The
peole expected to see these crimninals
sent head-long into the penitentiary.
had this policy been p)ursuled, every
ladical that is nowv running or writ
ing North and inflaming the minds of
the people of that section against uts,
would have beeni removed from publie
gaze, and, attired in a striped suit,
would be earning an honest living
after .years of crhimnal prodigality.
Smualls and WViipper amnd Swalls and
Sam Lee and the Charleston gang,
especially, wore smeared all over
with'rira and their removal from
ativo political life wouAld have been ai
matter of no difficulty. But the au
tyies,.atonqttne'or.pid i4ithi fbar,
have been watuned into fresh vigor and
are virulontly stilging tihe hand that
spared them. This is Radical grati
tude. Experienco has fully shown
the danger of manimisting the least
degree of magnanimity loward.s (hose
who were conspicuously idenitiled
with thle party of iiate, corruption and
plunder. 1t. is not too late. Justice
to the iloceit citizens who have
been dragged from their homes on
truped-up affidavits demanis that
the machinery of the courts e at once
put in motion to puilishl the knaves
that have thus far gone unwhipt, of
justice, and are using their liberty to
make onke3 more insidious attiack upon
Democratic supremiacy in the South.

What a Colored Man Thinks of tho Po
Well, colored gentlemei, we hive
been fooled long enough. 'Tiwas "'forty
acres of land amid a mule." Second,
'twas high taxes, anld the land would
be Bold, and we would buy it. If
men who owned land couldn't pay the
tax, how could we pay the priIncipal
and the tax? Men who own nothing
have no interest in voting. A -poor
man is t good voter. 'Twas the inter
est of the North to keep you poor.
Men who own property can not be sat
isfied to allow men to control their
property who own none. Every col
ored man has a trade-to draw the
line and push his plow-chop with his
hoe and cut. .vith his axe-hove his
plane and pushi his saw-make his
mortar and use his trowel. While
peace and quietness cover the land,
Governor Hampton is the man. I
don't wonder that so imy men are
candidates for sheritf. If the average of
prisoners in eachjail is about ten, year
by year the county pays thirty cents a
day for each prisoner, and thirty ceits
will feed them all. The taxpayers
have it all to pay. If' you won't take
advice from white mnen1 to leari how
to keq out of ji ii, look at theiii-:lo as
they do and stay ont[ of jail. Soon as
day began to break in Southil Carolina
you wer., told you couldn't live here.
TIle head of every fimily pays ten dol

Every good citizen Should come 111) to
the polls and vote for Gaillard, Brice
and Clowney, and for Governor liIamp
ton, and all go to work and he hlioest
and let us have good laws and a gooil
country. A%rm H.
