As a candidate for the Presidency
it is not likely lhat Mr. Gai field will
receive the entire support of the Re
publican party. Tho contest, which
resulted in his nomination, was too
long, active and bitter to warrant
such a conclusion. ' The circum
stances attending his advancement
and Hie relations of tlic faction lead
ers themselves were of such a nature
as to preclude such a probability.
Blainc's opposition to Grant is not
less lhan that of Conkiing to Gartiold.
Party bonds do not generally control
the active passions of the human
heart, and the hatred these gentlemen
bear each other will not ittdurc the
stings of the party lash. Tu,j memo
ry of the old rebuke which Gor?eld
administered to Conkiing in Wash
ington once and the more recent one
at the Chicago Convention on the res
olution ruling out the three West
Virginia delegates, will not make lhat
gentleman and his friends active
worker s in the next campaign. Il is
not reasonable to suppose that either
Grant or Conkiing will occupy more
thnn a passive position in this elec
tion. If they conclude to take no
part, their indifference will so cripple
tho operations of the party in New
York .and Illinois as to rendet the
conquest of those States by the Demo
cracy quite an easy task. We once
thought that Grant would be the easi
est of' Hie Republican candidates to
defeat, but the complications, in
which the Chicago Convention has
involved the party, make Mr. Gar
field's defeat a foregone conclusion.
If the Democrats, at Cincinnati, will,
with anything like unanimity, nomi
nate any one of tlieir lending candi
dates, Bayatd, Fields or Hancock,
the way is clear not only for a glori
ous victory but for an overwhelming
defeat of the Republican party. Noth
ing can rob us of this but a course
of suicidal folly at our approaching
The citizens of Caraden and Ker
shaw County, in view of the frequent
occurrence of duels in their section,
have organized a society, called **The
Camdcn and Kershaw Anti-Duelling
Association," to prevent tl? crime of
duelling., if possible, by enforcing tho
law In such cases provided. The
movement is made under the auspices
of -Judge J. B. Kershaw and others
of tho most influential citizens of the
county, and Iiob every prospect of ac
complishing its purpose. The only way
to stop this crime is 'Ho educate pub
lic opinion and train the moral Bense
of the people to a true perception of
the criminality of this wicketl and
pernicious practice." The mere fact
of duelling being a popular mode of
adjusting personal diilltmrtfeff-ddes hot
make it less a crime against the peace
of society, or the rcv-enge it seeks to
give, less savage and cowardly, or
i he killing when done less a murder.
Against the first, public opinion
should be arrnyed, ngah??t the second
the voices of . brave men should be
raised, and ngainst the last, tho law
against-murder should <be enforced.
The Result of the Convention.
The heated discussion on early
nomination before the State Demo
cratic Convention seems to have had
no ill effects upon the prospect of the
approaching campaign. It was found
that early nominations wero desired
not only by a majority of the people
themselves but of the members of the
Convention ; and tho minority true to
their loya'ty, when the decision bad
been made, pledged a generous, al
most unanimous, support to tbe tick
et. It was determined that the unity
of the party should not be sacrificed
to personal ambition or favoritism,
and this assures such a vigorous cam
paign as will be a guarantee of final
success both State and local county
elections. Tbe most stubborn oppo
sition to live measure was given by
Edgefleld delegation, but, when the
fight was ended, tho magnanimous
avowal of Speaker Sbeppard that be
would stand or fall by tbe decision
of the Convention, gives ample assur
ance that tire ticket will receive tbe
entire vote of the county. There is
no reason to suppose that Gen. Gary
and his persons! friends will hot stand
by the action of tbe Convention or
withhold their support from the ticket
nominated. Such a course would be
in direct opposition to Gen. Gary's
life-long faith In tbe rule of the ma
jority as well as is in conflict with the
noble sentiments uttered before tbe
Edgefleld Convention which binds
him to the action of that majorty.
His known patriotism, past services
to the State and his deep interest in
tho welfare of her citizeus constitute
a sure standard by which we may
judge his conduct in this crisis of our
affairs. Hie other delegations, com
posing the minority, at once gave
their cordial absent and returned
home with a fixed purpose to enter
the campaign at the proper time and
to work for the success of the ticket
as if tbeir own opinions had prevail
Such is the excellent spirit and
unanimity of sentiment prevailing
throughout the entire borders of our
State nt the present time, that every
oitiecn may feel satisfied through the
season of rest from political excite
ment, which will intervene between
the nominations and the opening of
the campaign, ot a oneness of purpose
on the part of every section of the
State. The farmer may follow his
crops and tho laborer has work with
out any dread of interference until tbe
harvest is over, and tlreu with united
efforts, under the leadership of the
gallaut Hagood, we will enter the con
flict and never cease until Democracy
is enthroned not only in South Caro
lina but in every State of the Union.
Upon tho heels of the excitement
caused by the triumphant nomination
of Hon. James A. Garfield as candi
date for the Presidency the Republi.
can Convention entered upon a bal
lot for* the nominee for Vice-P esi
dent, which resulted in the selection
of Gen. Chester A. Arthur of New
York. How this nomination will
affect the ticket, is too early to judge.
Gen. Arthur is said to be the person
al friend of Mr. Conkling, whose
wrath perhap9 his nomination is in
tended to appease with a view of
securing the electoral vote of New
York for this ticket. Arthur belongs
to the machine faction, and will give
but little additional strength to the
ticket, if any at nil. Indeed it is a
feeble attempt to unite tbe Grant
C <nkling faction and thus enlist tho
influence of their friends in behalf of
the tickets. Upon the whole, Gar
field, with his Credit Mobelier connec
tion and other swindles in which he
took a hand, and Arthur with his
Custom House record and limited
public notoriety will make a nice tai
get for the Democratic arrows to be
It appears that Gov. Simpson and
ExGov. Bonit?t?, had a royal time at
Beaufort recently. They were wined
I and dined by tbe officers of tbe fleet,
and Friday night they were compli
mented with a serenade, in response
to which both gentlemen made short
speehes. The Sea Island News says
that the Ex-Governor "struck a re
sponsive" chord in the breasts of
many of bis bearers, when, in allud
ing to the entertainment given by the
officers of the fleet, he said that
Mwhile under the stars and stripes he
considered himself as among the
number of those who .he thought
should have been hung for trying to
break up this glorious union." We
have been fully reconstructed for lo
these many years, but we have not
reached that point yet when we can
bring ouiselvcs to believe that we
ought to be hung for trying to "break
up this glorious union.'* Too much

The balloting /In* the Republican
Convention at Chicago began on
Monday last in the presence or A
large audience, the first vole reveal
ing the full strength of the contend"
ing candidates: Grant, 304; Maine,
284,.and Sherunan'B&Hvrne8e figures
were maintained throughout the day I
with but slight fluctuations; Grunt'
reaching 309, Blaitie $85 and Sher
man 98. Whilst the. twenty-eight
ballots showed no elgn of weakness
on the part of the contestants, there
was certainly no additional strength
developed by which a judgment could
be formed as to the final result. K
anything, the indications pointed to a
new man as the successful one. Who
he should he, did noT appear from
any of the proceedings on Monday ;
but the following night combinations
wore made which gave quite a differ
ent phase to the balloting of Tuesday,
and proved to the Grant faction, be
fore it had progressed far> that the
day was lost. Mr.-Garfield, of Ghio,
who the day before h? received only
two votes, begun to grow rapidly in
favor with the members until tlie re
Bult of the thirlynslxib ballot gave
him the requisite number to be de
clared the nominee of the National
Republican Party for the Presidency.
The following is the relative positions
the candidates occupied when the bal
loting closed : Garfield, 399 ; Grant,
306 ; Blainc, 42 ; Sherman, 3 ; Wasb
This ends, we hope, the career of
Gen. Grant. He is politically dead.
All the glory of the past, both as a
military leader and as the chief mag
istrate of a great republic, is destroy
ed by an inordinate and over-teach
ing ambition. Had- he never con-j
eetved the idea of a third-term, histo
ry would have written his name high
up in the list of America's great men ;
but his conduct during the last few
months together with the balloting of
the Chicago Convention, prove how
false the record would have been.
Had he never dreamed of occupying
a position near lo Washington in the
hearts of Ihe people, his ~ present
shame would never have overtaken
him, or his utter insignificance ap
peared in the comparison. Had he
never assayed to do what was be
yond his ability to perform, his true
position in American history might
never have been reached, or posterity
learned what a child of circumstances
merely, the so called hero of the
great civil wer>fan, been. In the
same political ' graverwith Grant lie
buried Blaine, Cockling, Edmunds,
Sherman und Logan. Peace be to
their ashes and rest lo the county.
Among the thousand and one wild
political scheme* tried at Chicago du
ring the session of the Convention
not oue is more astounding than the
efforts of the representatives of Wo
man's Suffrage to ingraft their pecu
liar views upon the platform of the
Republican party. What may be the
final result of the persistent efforts
made by these advanced women is
bard to say ; but one thing we do
know that the political party which
espouses lhat cause, will as certainly
die ns the attempt is made, and the
political Convention with four hun
dred women iu it would as certainly
end in a (untie asylum in three days
as tiic attempt is made to hold a ses
