Id a community ovorwholmingly
agricultural it is hard for communism
and nihilism to get firmly rooted in
tho social fabric. This is tho condition
in South Carolina, tho paramount in
tore8t being agriculturo, that interest
being so universal that ovcry other is
in some way interwoven with it?to
such extent that tho economic
conditions hero at tho South may bo
considorcd as an agricultural entirety.
Leaving out tho nogro (and as a fuetor,
having an in?uonco, he need not be re
garded) this is preeminently a land
lord's community. Compared with the
northern communities tho holdings of
tho landlords at tho South aro largor
and yot while this Is tho fact tho land
lords compose tho groat bulk of tho
population or aro so related to every
other element as that tho landed Influ
ence dominates tho sentiment of tho
What is known as Conservatism is

landholding. They aro Inseparable,
und land ownership cannot exist in
communities without tho constant
prosouco of tho staid, quiet, non-ag
gresslvo and, if you like, non-progros
8lvo quality of lot well onough alone,
commonly denominated conservatism.
This has been tho "stato of man'1 at
tho South for two hundred years; and
until right rocently, sineo tho trend of
largo populations to tho North-West,
tho South has boon a peculiar people
and constituting a peculiar civilization
in these States. Her pooplo established
until now no othor i u t o r o s t:
thoy found it to their interest
to become and remain staple producers,
and consumers of tho products of tho
manufactures of other peoples and
States. Tho result of the war loft them
still landlords with tho same holdings
and without capital to establish other
industries, when it boeamo to their
interest to do so. This Is the situation
to-day. By industry and economy thoy
havo largely recuperated and havo sub
stantially preserved tho peculiar fea
tures of living which characterized
their fathers of fifty years ago. In fact
hundreds of industries formerly prac
ticed at the South in a domestic way
havo been abandoned and wo stand
more exclusively than ever a purely
agricultural society. With those con
ditions it is not out of place to look
well to the influences about us. Every
reader of tho history of our Government
need not be told that tho South has
been tho prey of the commercial and
mauufacturing North by unfriendly
tariff and financial legislation
since the establishment of the
Government, But other enemies and
antagonisms are assailing us at this
juncture. They aro so Insidious thai
their dangerous and deadly character
aro so much tho greater. Tho landed
interest has been assailed by Agrarian
ism in all ages. All classes have and
do attack It. Thero is not a feature
of political agitation at present in this
country that is not an indirect attack
upon land ownership as fostering and
sustaining exelusivencss and building
up an aristocratic class in the country.
No matter what may bo the proposi
tion, direct ownership of railroads and
telegraphs, the assumption of the of
fice of furnishing money direct to the
people or any other fad or flattering
proposition of relief in times of finan
cial distress, thoy point to tho general
idea of the Government being the fa
ther of the people, the ownership of
all tho lands by the Stato, for tho uso
of which the people must pay: the ab
olition of all property except personal
property; the exclusive education of
all tho people by the State: tho anni
hilation of all individuality: tho ab
sorption of tho State by the general
Government, the conversion of State
and Federal Governments into one
great consolidated communistic com
munity. To this extent wo are not
prepared to say tho present leaders of
popular sontimcnt and olllee grabbers
aro prepared to go, but we do say, that
tho necessary tendency of their speak
ings and teachings aro to these ends
and that tho seed Is being sown in our
land, which, if not checked, must breed
anarchy and subvert our peculiar civi
lization. For four years In our State
dragon's tooth have boon sown broad
cast. As a lcgitimoto outgrowth of
these teachings we havo the abnormal
and dangerous instance of this State
entering into a groat monopoly of a
business employing thousands of
agents appointed by the chief magis
trate, who necessarily become his tools
for tho perpetuation of his party and
partizans in power, employing the peo
ple's taxos, credit, and money without
guard or check and without tho oppor
tunity awarded tho citizen of examin
ing into its operations, its windings
and nocessary corruptions. Tts agents
aro armed by the government with
tho badges and emblems of power, as
patent and more Offensive than tho
hirelings of monarchs, because we are
supposed to go In and out in a free
land without encountering upon the
highway the uniformed tools of the
Wo set those views down hurriedly:
wo hopo to Cause men to think and
beware: wo love the civilization of our
fathers: it was simple, honest and free:
It had no patornal fonturc; it smacked
not of fatherhood by the State; the
peoplo governed and the Stato gov
erned as little as possible. Tn the
meanwhile thero Is an insidious assault
Upon those who uro content to acquire
homes and who hope to transmit them
to their children.
The radicalism of the North tended
to affect the rights of the States, but it
did not Infringe upon tho rights of
property and the pursuit of happinos-s
by its acquisition. Paternalism, popu
lism, and grcenbackism and nil the
ories in sympathy with theso ideas of
governmental policy assail property
and establish communism. As a jour
nalist we fcol It an Incumbent duty to
suy and to repoat and to emphasize
that thore is not and has not been a
popular leader and sponkcr in this
Stato for four years whoso proachings
do not inovitubly lead to centralism,
populism and the utter annihilation of
ovory healthy Idea of property and so
cial order In our Stato.

last. It scorns that there aro sovcral
lawyers, candidates for that county and
among thcin tho present Speaker of

gcrtleman who recolved tho lovely
fees over thero in a bond case a fow
years ago. Other lawyers aro candi

tho way the plums uro going. Tho
probabilities aro ho was for Farmer
lOUcrbo and feels that it is time to put
on his war paint. Wo will givo our
readers in next issuo too issuo of Cul
lins' eloquence. Ho is indebted to tho
Lancaster Review for his immortality.
Hut hoar tho statesman:
Farmers can't vote an independent

you all tho time. I have boon fighting
the lawyers over since 18(58. Fought

duty to Cod and man. i will light
lawyers till tho wool pulls olT. I have
been a Reformer, but thero has been
no retorm. All of you are a set of in
fernal fools. You need the scales
knocked olT your eyes with a crow-bur.
They talk about that reduction bill.
Why, it was killed by amendments?it
looks like a nigger bill. Jones, talks
about paregoric-, but it's weak pare
gorie, and ho's got a sting in his tail.
Old fool Cullins, eh??want to getont
and whip him'.?come; out and try it!
I don't want your votes. Will think
as much of you if you don't vote for
me?don't think much of you anyhow.
1 want to kill about 40,000 hvprocritos

long bundles Is what the lawyers arc
after. I want freedom. You let these
follows go down yonder and out Off
your freedom and you have not got
sense enough to see it. I am not hang
ing on to anybody's coat-tail and no
body's, bunging on to mine for I ain't

you get peace when the devil is among
you? They say they are going to get
on Cullins' record?let 'cm try It!
They'll find ono of the "stunipost" tail

They will not participate in the State

In this State anterior to 1800. They
have been excluded from all participa

for four years. They voted with tho
thirty-two thousand conservatives for

ticket. They were exoluded on the
13th instant as unworthy and along
with the negroes, from selecting a can

goes forth: '"To your tents, O Israel."

John Temple Graves, the eloquent
young orator of Georgia, addresses a
letter to the Constitution deploring
the prostitution of politics in that
State. The people believe that every
thing is fixed by big and little rings
and that the judicial departments of
the government are a part of the un
holy alliance. Judges and solicitors,
county judges and the whole judicial
machinery of the Stato are manipu
lated. The property, lives and liberty
of the people depend on whether they
take snuff with the ringsters. The
times are out of joint in Georgia. The
situation is a little grave, indeed, but
Graves would make a grave mistake if
ho advises Georgians to transfer their
allegiance to this sido the Savannah.
