TR??? IV? ore in tio tray resjionsiblc for the
witvs or opinions of our Cotrespomienls.
Goy. Chamberlain has ordered both
tho negro militia and the riflo clubs
iu Edge field to give up their arms.
This is fair, and will be" so recognized
by the tthito people.
IJpon motion of Duncan of Orange
burg, the bill, to make the offices of
eouuty treasurer and county auditor
elective, in accordance with tho recom
mendation of Governor Chamberlain,
was indefinitely postponed.
This is just as wo predicted. The
republican pnrty is thoroughly alive
to the necessity of making some show
of reTotiu for self-preservation, but
that samo self love will hold it back
from any act, like this, which will re
sult in any advantage to the conserva
tives. It will be readily seen that the
passago of this bill would give a con
servative treasurer and audiior in
every county in which the whites arc
in n majority, where, under iho ap
pointing system, all will be republican.
In tho samo way we do not expect
to see Governor Chamberlain's recom
mendation in reference to minority
representation carried out.
Leslie says "tho republican party
would be a fool to give away its pa
tronage;" but we don't know but what
the white people arc greater fools to
By an examination of statistics it
will be seen that the negro vote and
republican vote in each county very
nearly coincides, and the same may
be said of the white and conservative
vote. The only exception to this may
be found in the last election in Charles
ton aud Sumter counties, whero the
whites and blacks went together, prob
ably for the first time.
It therefore appears from past ex
perience that the blacks have voted
as a race against the whites, and that
if the latter wish an equal share in
the government, they muni oo iiioroimn
their number by IMMIGRATION, that
the two races will be equal. Not un
til then will there be a willingness for
concessions on both sides, and conse
quently an even chnnco for justice.
Remedies suggested by nature arc al
ways better than artificial ones, and
should be resorted to, if wc have not
given up our case in despair.
The public will 1c pained to learn
of the death of this prominent official
at his residence in Sumter a few days
Judge Green will be chiefly remem
bered ns the chosen representative of
the independent element in the recent
So invulnerable was his record for
honesty ?hat his political opponents
could find nothing ngninst him, until
their ingenuity brought to light that
he had voted for tho black code, to
which circumstance, above all others,
his defeat may be attributed.
His Charleston speech proved be
yond question the justice of his caiisc,
ns well as his fitness as its standard
bearer. It was universally com
mended, and will long be remembered.
He is gone; but tho principles he
represented must survive, unless the
blacks persistently refuse to harmon
ize with the whiles.
Hon. Lewis Harbour, of Tennessee,
has presented a petition to the bouse,
signed by three hundred colored peo
ple, who desire to have some portion
of tho South set apart for their exclu
sive use, with a similar protection by
the United States government to that
now given the Indian tribes in the
This would certainly give a chance
to test the question ns to whether the
negro is capable of self-government.
As 'ong as he is preyed upon and
misguided by tlio scalawag and car
pet-bagger, it is unfair to judge what
ho would do, if left to himself.
Doubtless if n portion of tho land
was set n*idc for them they would
soon occupy it of their own accord,
and live more happily than bore, con
tinually harassed as they must be by
intriguing whito men, who aro only
lining them ns vehicles to power.
The separation of the two races
would certainly he conducive to great-"
er political hnrihonv and integrity.
If the negroes can govern thorn
selves it would certainly he a benefit
to tliem on tho whole, for while they
havo tho ascendency over the whites
in South Carolina, they are complete
ly under their control in Georgia,
North Carolina and other Southern
Wo believe tho whites would also,
bo benefitled by being made nioiv. self
reliant. We do not favor any precip
itate action on the subject, but merely
such an agitation of it ns may fully
develop the sentiments of tho negroes
of all the Southern States. Wo havo
no reference, of course, to the Radical
press which will doubtless vehemently
oppose any such proposition. The
Bchoinc is favored by Dr. Winkler
and other ablo thinkers and writers.
TIlE INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE
Up to this time we hear of no re
poit from the committee appointed b}'
the Senato to investigate the charges
of Humbert against Senator Andrews.
Th is is entirely too serious a matter to
bo disposed of in this way. Thous
ands of the people's money have boon
stolen, for which ex-treasurer Hum
bert has been sent to the penitentiary.
Humbert, in his testimony con
fesses t hut. I13 did not make his re
turn to the State treasurer according
to law; hut states in substance that
Andrews was the cause of his failure,
as he was using the money.
The Senate committee was sent, as
we understand it, to ascertain how
much truth, if any, there may be in
these allegations, and tho peoplo,
whose money was stolen, have a right
to know the result of their investiga
tion. The charges arc too grave for
Senator Andrews himself, if he is in
nocent, to be satisfied with anything
short of a speedy, clear and explicit
report from the committee. Nothing
else will satisfy the public.
If he is innocent let him be cleared,
and we will glorlly publish his vindi
cation; but if he is guilty, the truth
should bo known and justice douev
Gen. M. C. Butler, whose house was
burnt in Edgeficld, has fulfilled his
promise to Judge Mackey to prove

J. (J. Sheppard, tho notary public
before whom Anderson Bussay's .state
ment was taken, certifies that iL was
made freely and, according to his own
confession, without fear or compulsion.
Wc think the republican party should
be satisfied now, after the report of
Judge Mackey, that the negroes are
more to blaine for the disturbances in
Edgeficld than tho Ku-Klux whites.
