TuE INTELI.IGONCE of th(e seious
accident that befell Governor llampton
onl the 7th instant, causes sorrow
everywhere. Although a compounid
fiacture is a serious n)atter, it is hoped
that the Governor's natukral vigor of
constitution will bring him through
speedily. Recent advices are that, he
is progressing favorably. It is a grimn
sarcasm that one reputed to be the
beet horseman and finest hunter ill
the Stale should, at the acme of his
political glory, become the victim of
such an accident.
THAT SCURVY scoundrel, Wenlel
rhillips, in a recent speech in Phila
delphia, spoke of South Carolinta as
"A dangerous State, led by that
vagabond Governor who calls hii.self
Hampton, a liar without character,
.morally a bankrupt, penniless in 1 lhe
street, who holds the hand of the
traitor in the White House to hetrav
a million of people of thcir vote.j.
This fulmination was greeted wiith
mingled cheers and hisses. Nothimg
better is to be expected from sueh a
lying, black-hearted knave, and t(e
only cause for surprise is that anyone
will be found so low or so stupid as
to follow his lead. It is such ea Ie as
he who dodged Confederate bullets
during the war, and now uphold
Beast Butler, whose only m1ilary
exploit was the hanging of ia dfence
lees boy in New Orleans.
The New York Herald of the 8th
estimated that the next ihouse will
have one hundred al fifty-one Demo
crats, one hundred and thirty Iepub
licans and eight Greenblackers, 0ith
four members to be chosen in Call or
na-a Deniocratic nijoritv of nine
under any coti ngency. California,
however, should elect at least two
Democrats. Since then, the Republi
cans are said to have gajined one mnem
ber each in Florida and North Caro
lina, wvhich will reduce the number of
Democrats to one hundredi and fort v
nine, witht a posibility of two o>r
three more from California. A ma-.
jority consists of one hundred and(
forty-seven members, which is whit
tling things down to a sharp polint.
It is claimed, however, that at least
four Greenbackers will go into the
Democratic caucus. In the presenit
Congress there are one hundred and
fifty-five Democrats and one hunL ldredl
The Radicals who were so despond
ent recently have become quite elated
over the dissensions and losses in the
.Democratic ranks, and nh'eady claim
a victory in 1880. If the Greenback
craze continues till then, their pro's
- pects are very bright. But if the
Democrats win back thieir st ragglers
next year the Radicals can easily be
beatet. The South, including D)ela
ware, casts one hundred and fortyv
votes for President, Newv York casts
thirty-five, IndIana 11fiftec, Ne w Jer'
soy nine, Connecticut six and Oregon
three. This shows what N othern
- States must be carried to gatin the
required one hundred and1 eight y-five.
