CONVENIENT LOO 10.
The bravo bravissimo of those who
have axes to grind, (office, public pap,
and pickings) at the expense of principle
is rampant in the declaration that the
government of to-day in the South is the
"logic of facts;" and is iucontestible-?
We have no idea of disputing that cer
tain mysterious events of history aro per
mitted to be; but to infer that such oc
currences outside of the result which is
to scquclizo them aro more than mate
rial employed to work out a reformation,
is to confine tho plans of Omniscence to
huimtn hands. Could tho people of the
South be persuaded to believe that the
existing rulo, with all its trail of ovils,
(beginning in a virtual spoliation of their
homes, and ending in the debasement of
their race) then could they as reasonably
dispute tho wisdom of Justice, or the
pricclcssncss of Truth. History is but
repeating itself; and though its pages aro
hidden at times behind prejudice and
error, and blackened with deeds of atroc
ity, yet it is the broad highway to knowl
edge, and must be most glorious when it
is the annalist of light evolved from dark
ness. The ''logic of facts" is as applica
ble to a hapless voyager between the
jaws of a shark, or a tourist who may be
a guest in tho den of an Italian banditti,
as it is to a people whjo aro fouchd to
acquiesce, to the most venal government
by a hedge of bayonets; and any other
construction put upon tho actions and
behavior of tho Southern pooplo than
that of a forced '.submission by a superior
physical mastery, is a libel upon their
character, and a slander upon their fume.
The Southern mind was at least pre
pared, after tho overthrow of its cause,
tp see a great moral reform. Tho
?'stnunchest champions of Republicanism
(so-called) flooded tho laud; and fresh
from the schools of abolitionism and*
sophism, they came to the rescuo of the
benighted South. "We have been pushed<
asido to give the missionaries a fair field.
Houses have they, and lauds} gold; with
out stint, and brass. In fact they are a
national ward, and America',8 protege.
But what have they accomplished ?
Their first achievement was. to sepa
rate two peoples whoso material interest,
were identical, oven to open hostility.?
They have robbed the land of its reve
nue, and plunged it into a hopeless bank
ruptcy,. They have ruined tho credit of
States, the solvency of which, liltcraly,
was based more upon the integrity of
their citizens, than the resources of their
acreage. In a word, they have trans
formed the South from a proud and glo
rious country, to a miserable dependency
upon a corrupt despotism. The seat of
government is diseased ; tho trunk is rot
ten ; license has usurped the place of lib
erty ; and rulers and minions v>o in a com
mon degradation. "Qualis rex, talis
grex." The last, hope wo may entertain
of men in public life, is that they may
immitatc, if they are notable to emulate;,
a good example; but whoro from " choice
they prefer to degrade thomselves
for .policy, and defeat the ends of
refinement, they must be left to a
status immeasurcably degraded below
man's mission. The Rovorend Gen
eral O. O. Howard whose sword and
prayers were raised together is a fit
type of almost any reformer sent to the
South. Poor man ; like his fellows, he
too has had tho silver lound in the mouth
of his sack. If tho "logic of facto" means
that every Southern State under radical
rule, is to bo plundered for tho enrich
ment of tho rulers, then, wo may bo ex
cused for cherishing a contempt for it
which words arc futile to express. At
tilla had a fitful sway ; Alaric render
ed civilization a door mat upon which
he wiped his feet; Bruce' learned a les
son of patience from the untiring spider.
Then may we. wait and hope for a re
form which will scatter tho blight of
tho curse upon us, and shed a glory upon
tho page of A^orica?vcivilizaiion.. whuJ>
is now under a vile moral degradation.
See. what others say of tho party!
Tho Boston "Advertiser," (republican)
in commenting upou the approaching
election for governor of Massachusetts,
says: "As a party our enemies are of
our own household ; One bold selfish
man (Grant) is their leader, in him all
the rest live an/l move and bjuvc their
being. Make him impotent, and they
would cease to annoy. Tho interference
of national office holders with local poli
tics must bo dealt with summarily. The
offence of tho Federal ring is intolerable.
"The peoplo are angcicd, and they
have abundant reason to be."
Tho President's officials in this State
have conducted themselves as if they
had been hired out to Gen. Butler, for
the campaign, and if public business has
not been neglected, it is plain that more
officers are drawing salary than there
is work for. The voice of tho peoplo
should be heard in Washington, above
the clink of the gold, and at Long
Branch above tho roar of the surf."
This is plain talk, and it would seem
that somebody's bull out South Carolina
is being gored. The "SnniT of the
Times" says: "It is tho principle, (rc
elcctive) which is directly responsible for
all this corruption and national degrada
tion. No sooner is a President in office
than he bef'ns to intrigue to bo returned
again, and it is to his intorest to appoint
smart knaves to place, in preforonco to
honest men. Tho result is, that his de
pendents serve l\im, not the country, and
The demoralizing practice inculcates
nothing but rascality and. craft. Tho
wonder is that the inherent soundness of
tho American peoplo has withstood such
pernicious influences so long. It is sur
prising that some peoplo think he needs
the army to seize the government, and
associate the idea with a military strug
gle, or a coup d' etat. Grant has gone
over that ground already, by his coyrs
d' etats in Louisiana and other South
? CHARLESTON ELECTION.
Tne nominating convention of Mon
day night was rather a disgraceful nflUir
for staid old Charleston. The "Wagenor
faction were decidedly in the majority,
but tho Boog supporters relied on mus
cle. One of the committee was pufc/?n
der the table and escaped rough hand
ling by staying thore. Tho result o?$ho
proceedings was a general confusion,
bordering on rowdyism. Tho Rcpubli
cans met at the Military Hall on Tues
day, and after much filibustering and
more noise, nominated G. I. Cunnjbg

supposed that ho will meet a large con
servative support, and beat Mr. Bon#, if j
he is run. Some doubts exist as to beat

PLEASE "RISE TO EXPLAIN.".
The old -Council will very shoitly
mako a clean transfer of everything per
tainiug to office, to their successors.
They have, perhaps a thankless office,
full of trouble, abuse and fault-finding,
and empty of profit. At the same tihio
they are public servants, and as a news
paper wo have been asked, by communi
cation, to call on council "to explain."
Why all the expensive work of ditching,
&c., on Amelia Street, and also that bridge
on the Bull Swamp road ? If it is for the
public good, all right; but many taxpay
ers think it is qnito unnecessary. The
full board arc here, and enquirer waits

Peter Jeannett' tho father of tho litth

went to tho jail to-day, and asked per-*
