Tim Charleston Daily News, our very
ubly edited eonteinpornry publishes in
its last Saturday issue a eonversation held
by Judge Orr and the special correspond
ent of the Xews. /That paper speaks une
quivocally of Judge Orr a*$ the ablest
man in the radical ranks. If this bo so
then Republican Reform has a belter
chance than Carpenter Reform and there
is another breathing space to be hen;
reaped for radicalism. Which wo sin
cerely hope may not be tho case, but
that Judge Orr may find himself mis
taken, as any other man will be who
thinks that any one can preach Grant
isin ami reform for honesty together,
with truth of intent. Judge Orr may have
brains but his political honesty may well
be doubted. He says he holds his office
only from compulsion through his family's
necessities. May not the same reason
compel him equally successfully to accept
another oflice cither here or elsewhere?
We think so, and no doubt many others
w ill agree with us.
Judge Orr pitches roundly into the
state radicals and tells us that they near
ly were the cause of ruin to the whole
national republican party ; would have
been such were it not for similar frauds
in the democratic parly of New York.
Is the preservation of radicalism then
based upon the villainy of its opponents ?
Our very able Judgcsays that any reform
in State affairs must be accomplished by
the Radical party. If there is any desire
on the part of any known party of the Re
publican party to be particularly honest,
we have not yet heard of him. The experi
ment of Republican reform was tried two
years ago by Judge Carpenter, when Scott
had already inaugurated his system of rad
ical plundering and it was forthe time be
nign failure. We do not sec why theoxper
imerit should be any more successful un
der the auspices of Judge Orr or whom
soever he may propose to manipulate for.
The Judge says that the colored masses
are still disposed to favor honesty in the
administration because they have; had as
laborers to bear the burden of taxation and
political profligacy. Now on this point
there is no reason why the Judge should
not know as well as any one else what we
all know to be the case; viz, than no other
class of voters feel less the burden of tax
ation and other stale burdens than do
these colored laborers of South Carolina
in the mass. That tin: exorbitant taxa
tion has rendered the renting of his land
by the planter compulsory whenever he.
could, and be has bad to take anything
he can get, and in by far the majority of
cases be docs not get the value of his tax
es. The necessities of his case have been
such that he has been glad to get a few
davs labor ill bis field as rental for more
land than the negro and his family can
plant, and found it very bard to get this
promise, small as it is, regularly fulfilled.
1'his is the irresponsible condition into
which labor has been brought through
the slate, through the agency of republi
canism ami its loyal leagues.
Being an entirely agricultural people,
and bereft of capital, we have been ground
between the nether and upper millstones
of government hostility and newly enfran
chised slaves: each by the other stimula
ted to do their damnedest to com pie to our
ruin. The)* care not to reform so long as
upheld by national bayonets. Whatdocs
our labor want more than they have, got;
the white man at the plow working to
pay taxes which come to him through
the leagues when be votes for Scott and
kindred rogues. This has been their
uniform political drill and has, it a ten
doiicy to bett;r Iiis honesty? Do they
not feed one another by it?
The Judge says that the colored voters
of our state want honest republican lead
ers. Well we have no doubt that such
may he found hut our experience tends to
the conviction that even when found
the negroes will not he allowed to vote for
thorn. And this Judge Orr docs know
when ho recognises that they ? will leave
the devoted abolitionist Greoley for the
pro slavery- imin, Grant, because the
white southern men endorse him and pro
pose to vote for him as opposed to rasci 1
ity anywhere. He even declares that
they will vote for republicans dishonest
rather than Democrats honest.
Judge. Orr says that the colored voters
of the State are ready to be convinced
and influenced by those of our natives
who arc willing to embrace republican
ism I.E. Grant-ism or Rneidalisni. Now
if negroes arc to he fooled by any such
trickery as this, they must have lost some
brains in being made, colored people.
Judge Orr thus holding up the allure
ments of treachery and perjury to his
former fellowciti/.cns and companions in
social lifo is a fit type of this hell born re
publican parly, bred in sectionalism gain
ing power by accident, matured amid war
blood, and sustained by the barest bribery
and corruption and usurpation. If this
is what Judge Orr as the exponent of
Radicalism expects his former associates
to embrace as the primary step to hones
ty .and the ncgros confidence wo sincere
ly hope tor him no success whatever.
Ami this then is the result of his ability,
to pimp for political perjury among his
former brcthcrn, our domestic exponent
of Grant-ism?the imposcr of a new test
oath* for State qualification on his former
constituents, ; viz* thorough adoption of
Grant., theft, bribery, usurpation, invasion
of the State; and all, as a step to honesty
and fair representation and management
of our own affairs. Now we do not mean
to suy that the Judge is a fool; and that
he expects any of his former associates
who are not idiots to swallow Grant or
any other test oath, t<; enter a black bird
chase after colored votes, we do not be
lieve. If the honest negroes want reform
let them make honest nominations and
they will be unanimously supported by
the whites whether democratic or not. If
not, then wo will look for-Judge Orr's
b?>lt for honesty. Think of it'."Judge
Orr's bolt for honesty," and even under
a Grant flag, if his nominations are hon
est and we do nut subscribe to Grnntism,
but are allowed tin; nevcr-to-be-for- j
gotten privilege of our forefathers, that
of voting with Judge Orr, and on
the solo ground of promoting reform
and the welfare of our State we will do it ;
to which task we can invite any honest
man, no matter ofwhat color, nation or
polities. Rut observe?! the Judge judi
diciously doubts whether he will ever
make his bolt for honesty.

Messrs. Enrrons :?I have, been for
aunto tiinr; thinking of contributing-i'to
your columns but. never would have
thought of it'were it not to expose the
rogues of our community. Last chrism as
one Joseph Bush or brush, set about
building a school-house for colored public
school in this school district, lie contriv
ed to get the community to assist,
some sending their tennis and wagons to
haul up the material: others came and
helped with their own hands, with the
understanding that the bouse was m t to
be paid for by the county. After it was
completed duddy Joe made out an order
on the county for fifty dollars to pay for
building tho house, signed his with the
mimes oi* the other trustees to this order
and received the fifty dollars. 1 don't
say that daddy Joe should work for tho
county for nothing, but I don't see why
he should receive pay for the labor of
others. The. people were willing to give
it to the county but not to daddy Joe who

judgment cannot be questioned, say the
is not worth more, than fifteen dollars;
but daddy Joe gets fifty and excuses
himself by saying "I might, as well git it
as for dem udder fellers to tack it,"

How often, recently, have we been afllictcd as
a people, in the decease of citizens, who have
been prom incut in our local history for ability,
intelligence, probity and worth. Truly, Or
angchurg lias been, in a brief season, bereft
of some of her most valued sons!
Among the number of those, who have lately
succumbed to the ruthless hand of Death, we
Khali always remember with feelings of special
esteem and regard, our late fellow-citizen, Col.
David J. Rumfk, who departed this life on
the 27 th day of April, 1S72, in the sixty-second
year of his age. Although to him was not
permitted the fulfillment of "throe ecorc years
and ten," allotted in Holy Writ, as the average
duration of human life; yet, in a shorter period,
he accomplished a full quota of duty?as n
citizen, in his interest in public n Hairs, and his
labors for the common weal; as a neighbor, in
his good will and urbanity to all; and as a bus
bind and falber, in his tender affection and
provident care of those united to him by the
fondest of human tics, and now mourning bis
Col. Ritmfk was eminently lilted, by social
jipusi'ion and education, for tho service of his
fellow-citizens in the arena of public life. In
appreciation of such qualification-, after serving
in various honorary positions, lie was called by
the Voice of the people of (hange Parish to a
scat in the Lvginlalurc, which he tilled with dis
tinction to himself, and to the satisfaction of bis
constituents, at a time when to be a member of
the Genend Assembly ofSouth Carolina was Ln
?.ecd an honor. Daring the recent war, in the
position of Colonel of the loth Itcgiinout or the
fcjtqttc.Reserve*, he evinced Id*patriotic impulse
to share in (bat nob'.e, but fruitless struggle; and
be was in the field among the heroic bands who
fought so well, though in vain, against overwhel
ming odds of resources anil numbers, for the Pal
metto and tin- Southern Cross.

battle of life, and stray aside to tin- retired
