B. GRATZ BROWN,

We want a. govern
ment ivithout corruption;
a Congress without price;
and a Judiciary without
politics. " B. GRA TZ
Republican Brogress and
From the published proceedings of the
recent Republican Convention in Co
lumbia, we must certainly pronounco it
the most impious, and unblushing]y cor
rupt body ever assembled in South Caro
Humanity revolts at the spectacle, and
oven Republicanism, which wc thought
had reached its ultimatum of degrada
tion in this Stntc, has sunk still lower.
In 1870, tho acknowledged ability and
bold opposition of Judge Carpenter kept
the trembling demons in awe and ?ilcnee,
and banded them together in secrecy,
for the consummation of their fiendish
plots ; hut in 1872 the assurance of the
successful alienation of the black from
the white race, through the agency of
Republican falsehood, has rendered them
bold in the exposure of each other's vil
lainy, to. promote their selfish ends.
Delegates make the most criminal
charges against each other, which are in
most cases only met by counter charges.
F. J. Moses, the nominee of the Con
Tcntiou for Governor, has been charged
BY HIS FELLOW RkI'UDLICAXS with the
most heinous crimes, and we see no refu
tation of them.
The public records show that he has
receivedjSl 1,000 of the Armed Force fund,
und yet Orr says "not an armed man was
employed in the State."
lie is also represented to have paid
400 employees in the House of Repre
sentatives, where only 11 were employed
in ante bellum days.
Resides this, Mr. Mayer, a Republican
delegate from Burn well, testified in open
Convention that Moses offered him $2,000
If he would make his delegation vote for
him. Mr. Martin also substantiated the
Nor is this halt of the party corruption
which was brought to the surface by
the quarrels among its own members.?
Rut our hearts sicken at the further
recital of the Republican exposures of
each other's villainy, professedly from pa
triotic, but really from selfish motives.
Judge Orr snya that there are only
# 2,000 corrupt Republicans, and 88,000
honest ones, but to us it would seem
nearer the truth, if he would exactly re
verse Iiis statement. If ho is correct,
then it is wonderful what an Affinity
there is between these 2,000, and the sur
face, for they arc always on the top. A
good tree does not bring forth corrupt
fruit, nnd if the Republican trcc_ in
South Carolina was good, we cannot im
agine how it could bring forth such fruit
as it has in this last Convention. We
always judge of a tree by its fruit, ami
if we so judge in this case, we m ast come
to the conclusion that tho whole tree,
trunk and all is rotten.
The developments of this Convention
have proved, beyond a doubt, that the
oft repeated Republican cry, that re
form must como from within its own
ranks, is brazen-faceu hypocrisy and de
We cannot say what bitter pills wo
may yet be called upon to swallow, upon
the dubious policy of "a choice between
evils," hut our opinion of the Bolter/
Convention is not very exalted.
It is mostly composed of men who are
now forced to admit that the II form
party was right in 1S70, and yet they
worked against it. 11m members of this
Convention show very plainly that they
want the ?0,000 Democratic votes to
elect their candidates, and yet they treat
this party with the utmost indifference.
Republicans have yet to learn that a
minority of 00,000, composed as this is
in South Carolina, is not to be cajoled or
bullied into anything which docs not
give some guarantee of honesty, decency
and justice. *
The ticket nominated by the Regular
Republican Convention, whether elected
or not, is the dcnth-kncll to all preten
sions of decent Republicanism in South
Carolina, and so far as the Grant Ad
ministration is concerned, has placed
"the last feather on the camels back."
It is too weak to carry the load.

It will be seen that the Liberal Re
publicans met in Conference in Colum

\V. M. Thomas and Dr. E. W. "Wheeler.
If any genuine reform is cvor to be
obtained in South Carolina, it is from
hence that we must look for it to origi
We have no confidence whatever in

say they want reform, nnd yet refuse to
stand upon the Liberal Republican plat
We believe that the majority of them
at least are deterred by nothing but
