A JUST CAUSE FOR ALARM.
Governor Leslie, of Kentucky, in a
a message to tbe Legislature of that Com
"The cause of the people of Louisiana
is our cause, for their danger is our dan
ger. The bitter cup which they drink
to-day may be soon com mended to out
lips. To abandon her is to abandon tbe
common cause of State Rights. If the
great wrong which has been perpetrated
against her shall pass unchallenged and
unr-. dressed now, it may serve as a pre
cedent to render resistance to similar en
croachments more difficult in the future**'
The cause of the people of Louisiana
is the cause of every State of the Union.
Tho interference of federal power there
to enforce p. biased deereo to the detri
ment of one class of its citizens, for the
protection of another which scruples at
no tyranny too base, or no acts too venal
to enrich its partv, is but an exchange of
federal strength for favors received from
it* supporters. It is the game of "you
fickle the and I'll tickle you." It is a
condition of a flairs which repudiates any
claims of worth or loyalty, such as Rudi
calism may not impose. It demolishes
law and equity, and overturns liberty
with the blow it aims at any party other
than ifci own. President Graut in his
expressions,'declared that tho welfare of
tho entire country, wo?'.d bo striven for
in his executive capacity. How has ho
redeemed his promises. By clogging the
wheels of State Government, by muzzling
the judiciary, and by bringing ruin and
coufusion upon one-halfj?f the country.
The dogma of "State Bights''* was the
Lernan monster, that required the Her
culean strcath of tho world to destroy.
It is again invoked as the oracle of desti
ny to lead the Union locked States from
their maze of bewilderment. "States
Rights" appealed to a convention of
peers to rectify usurpation. Those peers
denounced its complaints as treason, and
cut loose from their sheet anchor, in their
zeal to chastise one bold champion of
right. Now the iron .heel is set heavily
on their uecks, and national prido is ex
changed .or a degradation of humiliation
which knows no equal among the nations
of the world. The States vested so much
of their sovereignty in a general govern
ment, as was deemed compatible with
the mutual interests. In relinquishing
their inherent rights as the parties most
affected, they placed themselves iu the
power of a party. It is only for the cir
cumstance of political change to occur,
to make Kentucky or Massachusetts feel
what. . Louisiana, and South Carolina
V . ft*
realizes to.day as fettered provinces.
To raise the wind, confidential circu
lars were sent ;mt from Washington to
all the postmasters, requesting a remit
tance in envelopes enclosed to aid iu elect
ing General Grant to 1 the presidency.
Of course these met a general response,
and the swindlers were largely repaid for
their ingenuity. At any other time than
the present such a miserable attempt to
deceive would have been* suspected, but
as it is well understood that office is
maintained only by bribery and corrup
tion, the scheme was quite au fait. Ap
pointee or employee is expected to sub
scribe his quota to elect the party nonii
neo, or the bead of tho refuser goes to
the block. It is only necessary to make
j the demand, and the price of refusal is a
loss of place. However, this is not in
timidation ; but let a laborer be told at
I tho South, that he will bo discharged if
he votes for a villain to fob and oppress
his employer, and it is interfering with
civil rights, and a severe penalty is an
nexed. Liberty forever.
[FItOM OVIt CIIAK1.KSTON COItUESrONDENT.]
Charleston, April 30, 1873.
Iu the long past but uever-to-be-for
gotten Ante bellum days, the great event
of tho Summer season was undoubtedly
the "Fourth," and dim indeed must be
the memory of that, man who does not
recollect the great national festival with
its attendant speeches, martial display*
and patriotic explosions?but the wur
which obliterated so many things of the
pnst, may be said to have also extinguish
ed in a great measuro with us, tho cole
hratiou of tho American jubilee, and
what more natural, than in the absence
of a fete of our own wo should console
ourselves with that of another people, and
in the pleasures and amusements of tho
Sch?tzenfest vent those enthusiastic feel
ings lavished of yore on the Aniversary
of American Independence. Since the
close of the war, owing to what has been
above suited, the "German shooting fes
tival" has increased in importance until
at length it ranks as the most popular
holiday of the year to the votaries of
pleasure in our city. The old "festivals"
of the Fatherland, from which this is cop-,
ied nrejof ancient institution, so old indeed
that it would puzzle an Antiquarian to
determine precisely when thoy commen
ced, before the invention ol gun powder
tho archers probably amused themselves
with bows, as tho rifleoteu now do with
their guns ; it is concerning one of these
latter gentry, "The Ire-j shooter," that
the famous old German legend is told,
which relates that he made an interest
ing, but slightly disastrous compact with
the evil one, who provided him with sev
en balls, six would infallibly hit what
ever the marksman chotc to aim at, but
the seventh was to be governed entirely
according to tho will of his satanic maj
esty, the story is more interestingly told
in the form of a well known opera "Dei
Much noise is necessary to awaken
your slumbering "deutscher," "his sleep
i may be''-that of the just but it is anything
but light. Accordingly, our festival was
opened .by a noisy salute from cannon,'
soon the streets were lively with Rifle
men, and tho parade oh Monday through'
I tho principal ^streets was, undoubtedly.
I the grandest display of military seen here,
for eight or ten years, and formed oxo
unbroken line of a*, least a half milo
long, of twelve hundred strong men.?j
Composed of fifteen organizations of dif
ferent kinds, including three companies
of mounted 'men. and one bf Zounves who
in their picturesque costumes, added
much to tho display. About the centre
of the column a triumphal car surmount
ed by a canopy of flowers, excited the
admiration of the spectators, aud its
freight load of little girls, robed in white,
and decked wjtli green garlands, threw
an indiscribable air of beauty and inno
cence over the entire scene. A delega
tion from the Savannah eliib, appeared
to advantage in theii neat grey suits trim
med with green. Our own Grrmau club,
about two hundred strong, brought up
the rear; the entire body being under the
command of Capt. Melchers ol (he G. R.
C, (this we know not only from herCsay,
but he had two feathers in his hat, where
as the other officers displayed but one.)
Several of the clubs were out in new uni
form, that of die ^'Sumter's" ? deserves
especial notice as being the' most tasty
of them all, tho costume of our old State
cadets?a large portion of the men car
ried the "Winchester Riflle" eighteen
shooters, and perhaps the most deadly
v/eapon yet invented, not even excepting
the much talkc.d of needle g?n. The mu
sic, was good, and in abundance, and was
judiciously (distributed along the lipe.
So soon as the head of the column reach
ed thcS. C. R. R. cars were in waiting
for tbe Sch?tzenfest grounds, where
speeches and lager were served ad'libi
tum, and the live days target practice
commenced. The grounds owned by the
German Rifle Club, are pleasantly situa
ted on the bauks of the Ashley; and are
beautified by many of those noble moss
covered oakes, the pride of our low coun
try, and perhaps the most graceful looking
tree in tbe world. A telegram was sent
on Monday by Capt. Melchers, to the
German Emperor, stating that twelve
hundred men were under arms, and sent
greetings; what purported to be an an
swer to this was found the next day pla
carded about the streets, and contaiued n
reply, in substance, that had his imperial
majesty known what was taking place,
he would certainly have attended in per
son?and ended with the information
that tbe Queen and "our Fritz" were
both well, and sent affectionate remem
The amusements at tho fest were va-.
ried this year by a "punch and judy
show." Tbe rope walker came to grief
during the early part of tbe celebration,
and the poor fellow In? been enjoying
the hospitalities of the City Hospital, in
stead of amusing the public. The usual
amusements, tuch as dancing, nine pin
rolling, &c, were well patronized.' Un
der the head of novelties we may mention
that our energetic "News and Courier"
paper, established direct telegraphic com
munication with the schutzenfest, and
items of interest were transmitted almost
as soon as they ?ccuricd. Appropos of
newspapers, we understand that "Re
porters" are to be furnished witn a kind
of cartriuge box attacned to a belt around
their waist, this machine is to contain a
telegraphic apparatus,and the Reporters
are to be able, while reaming about the
country collecting nous, by merely at
taching one end of a piece wire to their
box, and the other end to the already
established line of wires along the Rail
Roads,?to be in constant correspondence
with tbe main offices and to show a per
fect disregard for all such old fashioned
systems of communication as the U. S.
mails now provide.
On Friday the last day of the fest the
king or best marksman was crowned, and
tbe prizes, many of them articles of val
ue, distributed, amid strains of music and
deafening cheers, the orator of tbe day
poured fourth his rounded sentences to the
listening multitude, and the ceiobration
Wiu closed about 0 o'clock by the dis
charge of artillery. Everybody moved
homewards, at least all thoso who could,
aud tho rest were taken in charge by
friends, to the credit of the fest just closud
we can say, that the duties of the 'friends'
were light, and tho consideration and
good nature with which everybody treated
everybody else, was in perfect keeping
with the well known peaceful and order
loving character of our German people.
We are unable to close without stating
that your county wa3 ably represented
in the poison of a valiant Colonel, who
interviewed the Captain of the fest and
displayed tho high degree of drinking
powers to which his countrymen had at
tained in the consumption of a couple
dozen of champagne more or less.
