for mi election sis In wIh'Mm r W" shall i-?1 :
iMlHlsHirllii'IV, I', (i-. iV; <U. 1!., it will lie
seen that out iH a total ot I--'signatures, only
M resistereil votc.-s sinned that paper, and by
reference to tlu* li I of registered voters it will
1?e seen that there are !! ?I qualified voters in
Vown. On the list are a number of persons
who do not reside here, and tlie number
whose names arc nttached li.v others than
theimclves is lartjp. It is also known thai a
nnmbcrof those who-e names appear on t he j
li*t nre not the owners of real estate in tli.ir!
own right. It is also generally believed that!
many who signed the jwper did so merely for!
the purpose of allowing lliy matter to ciiinet
toavote, without obligating themselves to!
vote for the bonds at the election.
The impression now is that tin; Town (\>nn?*il
intend to aet impartially for the while
) eople, and that the machinery of the elcct: on i
will not tie used for paitisan purposes.
These faets lend us to believe that a fair clee-;
lion will be held and that a fair expression of!
the people will be had. |
For our own pat t, wo thiiiK mo imnerwous
*ire clear and unmistakable tlint no Ii:xri:i will:
*-on?e to us In this election. The unpromising
outlook for a ro.nl, together with llic danger
of voting bomls on conditions which arc with-1
out warrant of law, will deter many lrotn voting
for them, while a large number of citizens i
jire not convinced that the investment would ;
be a good one, even if thcToad was an assur- j
cd fact. j
Kroin the tone of President Haskell's letter j
we think it fair to presume that we would ,
1 >scour branch road if we should build a new I
one. In that event we would have r.o eom-j
1 etitlon, Ibesole moving cause for trying to
build a new road.
Having failed to reach out our hand r.t the
proper time for roads that would have been j
jirofitnble, it is now useless for us to incur a
heavy debt at a time when our trade and bus-j
in ess is threatened with curtailment, and j
thus further d< press our property by the issue
of bonds for which it is pltdged for tiio pay-'
men t.
Cemetery ?t Me('or:t>iek.
We copy the following from the McOirmicI; i
Adcancv of last week :
McCoumick, s. May 11,1SS?.
Jiifriulmi/ ami H'anl -ns Town of Mc(.\initk'k :
itKKTi.KMKN: I have the pleasure to i re-;
Kent to your lion. Body, and to your successors
in office u plutl of land, containing two)
acres, more or less, as a donation to the eouu- I
cil of MeCormlek, S. by Mrs. Cyrus II. MeCormiclc,
for a cemetery.
Gentlemen, this property is donated conditionally
and should you accept I wiPulve you
papers that will justify you to proceed to work !
at onec. Condi lions:
1st. The eemotary is to be laid ofl" and ai
picket fence built around the entire platt, so;
that the cemetery may be enclosed.
2nd. That at least one-third of the two:
acres be set apart for the poor, who are not j
able to buy sections.
"' J ' will Im vnopfr-il of fhr> council to
pay for survey ins nn?l locating tlic cemetery. J
j?I>o it will Ik- expected for the council to keep j
the cemetery trimined up and iticlesi-d.nnd toj
meet this expense you have a right, to sell
fcctlonsaml deed the satnc to parties who!
may wish to purchase.
Gentlemen : this needs no comment on niy j
part, so I t herefore submit them for your de- j
cisloii. I tun respectfully your*.
J.\S. CoTTOiAN, .Ik.,
Agent for the Est. of (.'. II. McCormick. j
We think the town of McCormick should
.decline the offer with thanks.
In the first place, with the present lights before
us, new and progressive townsshould not
locate tlicir ccmclerics too near to the popu-J
loll* seciioi s. Sanitary or health reasons \vi!j
suggest the Impropriety of burying the dead j
in the ne'ghboiliood of the wells which are to)
supply wr.ter to the people of the town.
In the next place, the gift is one of small j
pecuniary value, and Is coupled with conditions
which. It would scein to us, would;
prompt the peoplo of McCormick to decline!
the gift. The lot Is given on condition thatj
the town shc.ll give one-third of It to the poor,;
ami with 1 lie further stipulation that the!
whole shall be enclosed with a fence of a de-i
tcribed character, and the lands shall be kept
In a prescribed manner.
We fuliy agree with Mr. Cothran when he
snys: "This needs no comment on his part." 1
It needs no comment. A prompt refusal is
xill that is needed.

IJ-.p petition of citizens to the Town Council j
asking an election to be ordered in reference
to bonds for the Carolina, Cutnbeiland Gap
and Chicago ltailroiul. A complete list of the
registered voters may also be there found.
As the question is submittal to the "qualified
voters" and as there seems to be no authority
of law for rc-openlng the registration books
at this time, we presume no additional names <
< an be added to the list oi "qualified voters/' J
"\Ve append the following extracts from the,
amended charier of the town:
All male Inhabitants of said town who shall

and resided therein sixty days previous to

The Color Question.
The question of admitting ceiored delegates
to the floor of the Episcopal Convention last j
week has excited general interest all over the j
{State. The time of the Convention wns con j
suniitl in the discussion of the question of ad* i
milting colored delegates to the Convention" |
It Is a matter of regret to us to see the mem- j
bers of religious bodies seek to take the advantage
of their adversaries through any demise
that may have the semblance of a resort)
to sharp practice, aud more especially is itj
pain.'a I to us lo see the presiding oflicer act!
the part of the partisan. NVhv Ilishop IIowsl
should seek to thrust colored delegates or. the;
Convention by alleged parliamentary rulings j
Is a matter which we have not found out. As j
far us we have beard Intimation, there is a
feeling ol Indignation at the effort to thrust;
a flre-brand into the church. and we hope to1
moc no effort on tiie part of tlie clergy secure
an act which would bring discord into the
Prosperous Contemporary.

after a drawn battle, which leaves
the i|in s:io'i at is-lie in s'litu quo.
That i>?uo was Hie '"irrepressible negro
"?nestio'.i.'' The lilshop had included In ins
l.st of eleruy two colored presbyters <'. II.
l'.i>"'!0|> and T. (i. Harper.one from the I ioee-t:
ot Maryland, the other from New York. 'J lie
I'cv. H. I!is:u;p is the assistant minister at
st. Mark's colored congregation. The ltcv.
T. (?. Harper is the assistant minister of the
St. I.ultc's congregation, Columbia. Their
presence on the t|nor of the Convention was
a surprise to a great majority ot the laity and
many of the clergy, and it unexpectedly
raised the color <)iies!ioii in the Convention.
C insinuation of tiie lSishop's list would have
settled the title of colored pres'iyters to seats
in the t 'onventioii. It was evident that a vote
by orders?that is. a vote of the clergy by
themselves and the laity by tlr*in<elve<?
Mould result in defeating thnt conllrmatlon.
Strenuous efforts therefore were made by thu
>)>. a m.ijorily or t lie eiercy, ami i n >?
the liily, to ( ( veal a vole by ordeis on the
approval of the lli-hop's list. The fir>t (lay
was taken up by this preliminary skirmish.
The next day "to bring, up the question directly,
Mr. l!ciict withdrew his call to vote by
orders and oiler.".! a resolution to amend ilie
l!i>hop's li*t by striking out the names of
I ii shop and I larpcr.and refer ton committee of
live?two clergymen and three laymen?to report
at next convention on the legal ami constitutional
right of other than white delegate s
to lie admit!) <1 to the liiocesiin ('nil ventlon.
This brought on a hot debate in which the
Sending clergymen and laymen on both sides
tool; part.
Mr. I tenet's argument was thai, the con*tIlutlon
of the IMoscsc did not confer upon colored
men the right to seats in tiieO-n vention.
lie argued that- before a negro clergyman
could take his seat tn this Convention this
lJioccsc should amend its conslitntion by defining
that the word "clergyman" therein
contained included the negro, lust as had
been done by Congrcssand the t'nitod StalesJ
Supreme Court in eonstrueling the word oil-'
i/.en as c mtained In the t'niied Stales t'on>titution.
The fact that the Fourteenth and
Fifteenth amendments had to lie passed bi.fore
the negro could vote and hold olHec was
a stronger argutnenl than any he cotihl adduce
in behalf of an amendment to the Constitution
of the DioecKeasto the meaning of
the word "elerjyinan." Chief Justice Taney
h id decided that tiie word "citizen" in tliaj
Constitution did not include the negro, and
Ciiief Justice Waite h-id deciiled that "citizen"
dil not include women, although women
and negroes are in some respects citizens.
It had been held in the United States Court
ill-it the term "public enemy," in tin indict- !
incut charging a man in Cincinnati with high
treason in'giving aid and comfort to the Confederacy,
was erroneous, and that it meant
only a foreign enemy. Arguing by analogy;
- ... t...i??..?,.>??.T ??n|f| niitv bear
uiai uiv ?I'm ...
a construction contemporaneous with its in- j
section in Hie Constitution of the Diocese,
and when ti:c Constitution was adopted in
is7">, witliotit changing Article:i, tin* meaning
it had previously conveyed was still its just
interpretation. Mr. J.vnct quoted tiic iired
Scott decision in l'.i'.h Ilowaid, Minor vs. Hat-!
terset. .'! Wallace, and the Cincinnati case.
Mr. 15enet said that tlie Salter* case was an
exceptional one, and that he had only been
allowed a seat in ttie Convention on the understanding
that lie should limit his ministrations
to St. Mark's.
Several nmctidmenIs were offered in tlie interest
of both sides, and wete lost by non-j
cojicus rencc of orders. Whenever the advocates
of the admission of the colotcd presbyters
advanced any measure affirmatively, tho
opponents prevented its adoption by non-eon-1
currency ot orders; and vicc versa. Tho main i
resolution advanced by tho opponents failed!
by non-concurrence. A motion by a eiercrytnan
to confirm the report of the committee
on the itlshop's list shared thes-.ime fate. The
whole of Thursday and Friday were consumed
in ihe unavailing effort to accomplish
anything, one way or the other. Tho 15:shop|
was heartily in sympathy with those who
ruivocrtted the seating of the colored minis*
ters, and manifested that sympathy plainly
in Ills rulings as c'.iairman, mid Ids remarks,
lie claimcd Hint lie had the constitutional j
right to Insert more names In his list of the |
elerry,an! that by thai Insertion they had
presumptive titles to their seats, which title, |
tie claimed, the Convention could not call In
qt.estion. This claim was denied, and all
that was asked by the supporters ot Mr. Bend's,
resolution was thai the Bishop and clergy
should not prejudge the case by iutrodiicins
those colored tii'-n into tiie 0 invention
before tl.eir rights had been adjudicated;
and that the consideration of the question !
should be referred to a'committee. Tln*y also
contend) d that until the lhshop's list of the
elwy wns passed upon by the Convention's I
vote on the committee's report, the Convention
could not be organized. The Bishop |
ruled that the Convention was duly organized.
All that can be said, after three daj's debate
K that by the failure of the contending orders
to concur, the Bishop's list was not conflrme
l, the right of the colored presbyters
was not voted on, and the Convention was
not duly organized. In fact, nothing was
done but to leave this vexed question to come
up Kt the next Convention, which meets next
May in Charleston.
The following protest signed by the supporters
of Mr. Benet's rnsolutionss, explains
itself.and will be interesting. It contains the
names of twenty-nine laymen and six clergymen
Mr. T. M. Ilanekel also submitted for himself
a protest. Both these papers follow:

The People's mill First National
Hindis of Charleston Charters will
Kxpire this Year, hut will l'robnbly
be lleneweil - - - Wlmt Dr. Siinomls
snj-s about the Onuses of
Financial Depression.
A'...... .....I
The charters of the First National Bank and
the People's National Hank will expire this
year. Some interest Is felt us to what will be
<lotie liy those fiMllutions. The following information
was obtained Iroin Hie oilleers of
the respective banks:
The Charter of the People's National Hank
is numbered 1,022, and was Issued In December,
IM>r>. The bank started with a capital of
SJOO.OOO, which was increased at various times
until at one time It was ?1,1)00,1X10. It was subsequently
reduced to ?7."i0,000 uiul then toS">.iO,000,
at which latter sum It now remains. The
bunk has declared two stock dividends, one
of iO and one of 10 per cent., and since Its organization
H has paid out in dividends $1,1
is surplus fund at tills date Is 5150,000.
The intentions of the present stockholders
are not known, but (he general impression
is that the bank w ill continue business under
u renewal of its charter.
The First National liank was organized November
20, lSttt, with the following otlicers:
President, Andrew Siinonds; directors, Geo.
\V. Williams, W. I-. Trcnliolm, K. W. Marshall,
M. C. Mordecal, David Jennings and
Archibald (Jetty. Tho bank charter was
granted in Washington on l>ecember 11, 1*05,
with a nominal capital of ?200,000, but with a
paid in capital of Sloo.ooo. This was increased
at various times to S5'H),000, and then reduced
to 5250,000, making an average capital of about
S.:ihi,ikii, on which dividends to the amount of
s7-Vi,ouo, mid taxes and expenses of about Sl'iO,000,
have been paid, the bank retaining about
Si'iO.Oiii)surplus (including the premium oil Its
L'liited Stales bonds)to meet contingencies on
December 11, 1SK5.
"l)o you think the charter will be renewed
?" the Reporter asked Dr. Andrew .Siinonds,
from whom this in formation was reeei
"The dlllicultles of making money are greater
than ever known before," replied Dr. Siinonds,
"and, to keep It when made, the hundred-eyed
Argus must watch over It with
sleepless eyes. No such depression has existed
In our day, and yet we continue to spend
money iis In llusli times. ? o nave u> lace
this double problem to make ami to keep.
Kvery Investor knows tlie ditllcuity of Hading
stocks which will pay a fair rale nml be at
the same time safe.
"We have to encounter two existing cau?cs
of depression, thedeslruction of capital and
the loss of business. Hundreds of millions of
dollars have been lost In stock investments,
n( least one-fourth of which were Rambling
or fraudulent. Investors will now scrutinize
closely before plunging Into the unknown
seas of hazard. Therefore, I think it safe to
sny that our shareholders will gladly avail
themselves of the privilege of continuing an I
Investment which is both-safe and profitable.
Kut If not, there are others readyuud eager to
take their places. All the capital stands
ready without notice to till any vacancies.;
The First National Hank will live wheu its
present managers htvVe passed away."
The reported robbery case mentioned In the
Ilrjmrtcr turns out to be the hallucination of
a drunken tramp, lie. it seems, had made a j
tire In the woods and had set them on tire.;
Mr. John Neel and some others went to him j
and ordered hint to move on, when he gave'
them some sass and they gave him a drubbing,
and from tills ho manufactured his robbery
story. It is not reasonable to suppose that a I
man wilii as- much money as he claimed to]
have hod would have b<en tiamping f;om

to invito yourself and the Democratic delegation

In Ohio. lSut 1 understand It will be Inconvenient
for some to travel hither now. nnd It has occurred
to me that pet bat stint same end misht be accomplish

and If yon can adopt them and pet sonm cases
' ' ? lilitn ftin ncTt (wu nr three weeks I think
within the month of May I can give substantial re|

1 think thnt I'roin 15 to '25 tier cent, of tliu
J funrth-clasH postmasters !n Ohio ml.-lit be removed
I within the next two month*, and great good accomjillshecl
thereby, If our people will will me to a proposeil
'J his is, !n shrift, to pick ont the most obnoxions aril
I offensive partisans In each couny to the nnuibrr of ii
sixth to a quarter of all, ami choose llrst-rlass men to
tike their (duces. I will require no morn proof of
I partisanship In these selections thnt the aliirmulion of
| Knowledge on the part of a Representative or Senator
that the postmaster has been an active editor or proprietor
of a Uepttbllcaii newspaper piIr.tins offensive
articles, easily shown ty slips; or a stump spearkcr.
I or member of a political committee, or officer of a
1 campaign club, or organizer of political meetings, or
t thnt his <Ilico has been made the hend'|tiarters of poj
iitlcal work, or that bis clerks have been put Into the
; performance of political duties. Possibly other arts
of equal force mny be noted In some cases. Jf the
I Representative docs not know the fief, it should be
[ established by some affidavit of some person whom lie
I can alllrtn to be of unquestioned credibility, or .by
j some documentary evidence.
I In recommending for appointment, I beg tho Eej
presentativc will slate the ago, business, ami what
kind of business experbn-e, and a description of the
business character <>r the applicant, and atso of bis
] habits and standing In the community. It would be
Well to Hie evidence showing that lie will be satisfactory
to the community, and when there are various
condldutes, I shall be ob'lged by any explanation
which tho Representative en give.
This nec-'S* trlly impose a little trouble, and yet not
very grent, but It seems to me reasonable to require
very extraordinary care and troublo enough to be taken
to r.-pr< sent mrcly the facts. The earliest removals
and tp|?ilnttnents of this kind will chn'tenve
tlic keenest scrutiny. The former must be justiflible
and the latter beyond cilticism. Some mistakes have
perhaps occurred, and our adversaries are keenly interested
to make the most of every fault, because tin v
have prrci lvcil n strong current of genetr.l approbation
of the purposes of the Admlniotration.
In rendering tills justice to our people, which concists
of the removals of enemies nnd subs'ftution of
our friends, ( feel that it is very desirable to proceed
with extreme care, and that I tun correctly representing
the President's wishes and purposes In earnestly
soliciting that every step may be taken accordingly.
I inn v mid t hut as the common good Is infinitely beyond
tho welfare of any one person, however great
his place, so appointments, to further a mere per-onal
en t should bo absolutely forbidden, and recomclida-'

mIio Is tho appolnt.ie? Xo one litis
answered Hie Inquiry satisfactorily. I do not
know that I can, but I propose to publish by
your consent, a lew facts concerning him,
and h's political Icr gl vcrsntlons.
MaJ. Morgan, as lie was known to his associates
(lin lim his short sojourn In this state,
was generally accorded citl/.etilshlp In Louisiana,
though I have thought hini a cosmopolitan.
A brother, hailing froutn Louisiana,
was the Kepublican Minister to Mexico under
Mr. Arthur. And a biother-ln-law. Cieti.
Drum, has been for some years the AdjutantGeneral
of the army of tho United Slates,
reshlent In Washington, I>. C!. Another
brother In-law Is the editor la chief or the
Xcics and Courier. MaJ. Morgan married a
wife in South Carolina, and for two or three
ycirs farmed below Columbia, supplying that
innr!rr>t. with Mr-nns-crass hav. seven tons of
which he loltl mo once lie had cut from one
acre In a single season. He soon abandoned
farming, however, and South Carolina also,
anil for thn past few years liis face has been a
familiar one to the residents or WnuWington
city. During the lute presidential campaign
lie whs quite active, and afier Mr. Blaine's
nomination published a small pamphlet, the
title pa?;e of which reads, "Amcrie-i'x Ju/.i/pt.
Mr. Jl'.dine* Forciffn I'olicy, by James Munis
Mnrii'iii, late of the CoH/iiterulu States Xavy and
the Kgmtian unity.
In Mils pamphlet MaJ. Morgan declares In
the outset, that Me. lllniue's foreign policy
was and Is one that would redound lo the
glory of the United States, anil that when Mr.
Hlalne entered President Garlic-Id's (.' iblnel
ho resolved upon three Ideas:
First, to uphold, at any and all costs, the
Monroe Doctiine.
j-iecond, to hold Mexico and the South
American Republics responsible f<ir any unjust
ticatnicnt of the citizens of the United
States, and for any lnfringmcnt of what is
considered tlie Law of Nations.
And thiJtl, lo convoke a Congress of the Independent
Slates of the American Continent
for the purpose of lormlng a united phalanx
of Western Towers against the powers ot Europe.
.MaJ. Morgan says: "From the day the Snrz
canal was finished England and France have
been struggling lor the control of Egypt, and
have taken possession of all of >01 thorn
Africa but Morocco, which seems lobe in a
fairway of Joining her sisters in captivity.
To-day, France Is attempting to build a canal
across the Isthmus of Tana ma, with a view
doubtless ot ultimately controlling ttie Central
American Stales. Mr. Illaine said, we
have a Monroe Doctrine which forbids transAtlantic
Nations from intermeddling in ttie
nllalrs of tiieso els-Atlantic people. The
Clayton-Anlwcr treaty of 1830 between the
United Slates and Great llrlilan practically
conceded to tlie lutior power control 01 any
canal to be dug across tills Isthmus. Nubsequciuly
Lhc United Slates entered Into a
treaty with the Columbian Republic, conceding
to the United .States similar control. Mr.
Blaine. thetefote, abrogated the provision of
former treaty, and said to all European powers?hands
oir, wo are the masters on this continent.:
times have changed: your ClaytonBttlwcr
treaty Is out of date." <tc. MaJ. Morgan
continues, "I can easily understand why
Great Britlan would not like to sec Mr. Blaine
In the Presidential chair," and quotes the
I'till Hull Gazette ot London Issued, after the
nomination of Mr. Hiainc, as saying ' wlierecver
Mr Blaine can oust tlie British Iroin the
position they hold on the American continent
lie will endeavor to replace English Influence
by American?England will watch with
extreme solitude the progress of the electoral
1 have Italicised the above to show, that Mr.
Morgan's pamphlet was published after Mr.
Blaine's nomination, some weeks perhaps,
and was written by 111m as a campaign docunieut
to assist in securing Mr. Biuiuc's election.
Ma|. Morgan further says. "Mr. Blaine's sreond
idea was to uphold Ihn rights of citizens
of the I'nltcd .States in Mexico. Central and
South America, and to shed light Into the
darkness of America's Egypt, for Mexico is,
or promises to be America's E>;ypt." Jlc then
draws a parallel between Egypt and Mexico,
eiting that the two country's are almost Identical
in every respect. The minarets and
domes, the street dogs and water carriers, the
adobe huts of the poor and the stone houses
nf tiiA rich, the snortlvc bet merciless and in
satiate Utile Jlcn, the ragged beggers nntl
carl hern Clods, arc nil as familiar to the Mexican
hs to the Egyptian traveller, l!ut.|i these
races are indolent ami docile, and posses great
powers of endurunee beucntU the burning
Tnc Mexican poen Is the Egyptian fellah.
In both countries the women veil their faces,
the Mexican peeping from beneath with one
i black eye while the Egyptian risks two, much
I to the envy of their watchful and Jealous
' parents, brothers and kinsmen. The robber
IJedouin of the Sahara is tlie robber Bandit of
the Sierras. Egyption Agriculture is Mexican,
both people plowing oxen yoked by the
horns, and using the plow that has comc down
from the times of Abraham. Chastity lias no
place with either race, because neither the
Egyptian nor the Mexican believes In the
virtue of woman. The rich have their duennas,
while the poor man put his wile to work,
while he lies In the grass near by to watch
her. "IJoukru" in Egyptian means "Mamma"
In Mexican, and both mean "to-morrow,"
j Implying that the national motto ol each is,
I "never do to-day what can be put oil' till toI
morrow." The two governments are very
similar: Egypt is called a despotism and
Mexico a republic: neither understand* tiie
mean Ingot free government. The Despot in
Egypt Is called a Viceroy or Khedive: the
Despot of Mexico Is called a l'resident or General.
MnJ. Morgan next comments npon our foreign
policy In these latter years, and says, wc
are getting so polite that we never raise our
voices above a whisper when we remonstrate
against outrages practised upon our citizens
by foreign nations. Freeing Martin Kost<i
thirty years ago made Commodore Ingrham
the most popular man of the day. The same
I act would take the shoulder straps otf of any
[ oUlcer who would attempt it In modern
Maj. Morgan says, "I read In Hip papers tlio
other day, that the "Monitor Jirpuhhcmio'' of
Mexico speaks of Mr. Blaine's nomination
for the presidency of the t'nitcd Stales as bad
news."' I ask, how could iv Mexican paper;
spenit thus, if the nomination had not. been
I made, and how could Maj. Morgan quolo the I
; paper until it hid been issued? thus proving!
I conclusively, that this pamphlet was written ;
| after the nomination, and in furtherance of aj
Republican candidate for the Presidency.!
I Could a man who was fealtothe Democratic!
I party tie guilty of such treachery?
Thcpamdhlct concludes with Ihe Informa-1
i tlon. that (.tuiteau's bullet put an end to Mr. J
I Ilia I nc's projects, and consequently h Is third ;
j Idea of convoking an American Internal Ion-.
nl ("ongrcss was never consummated.
| From tills synopsis of the eontentRof that
