The Proclamation of G nvr.nor Tl ib.-rt IC.
Sc ?tt t-harg -s th.i people of the-whole State
with anarchy and lawlessness. Wc r*grct to
learn thin! f -r it has never . xisted heretofore
in South Carolin*. But we arc inddeed to
believe that matters are nor so bud under his
administration, as his fears lr.ve l?;d him to
supple ; f *f tlie' " rep ?r's d?n!y received at
the Executive D?-paitm-nt." come, .' panic
ular!-,,'' in par?. fr?n thc C 'Uii'y ?>l Uni?n,"
ami convoy inf ?rmation and depict a state o?
things, of which the people of Union th*m
selves arc p'ofoundly ignorant
lt was not to be expected that Governor
Se ?tt would, in a publie proclamation, reveal
the sources of his informal? ?ri ; n ir w u!d it
In? surprising if on-?, who has scarcely yet
been lon-? enough in Sotith Carolina to ac
quire a doinieil, should h? ignorant of thc
character of hii infornwntx, But while the
names of those who furnish him '. daily" with
reports, are conceal-d. the sulj.-ct matter of
the rep Tts ?ire happily ?et forth ut length in
this Executive document.
It is imp sdble to treat u sn"'j ct of such
serious im'ort as this, without using plain
und strong language. Wc live here, our lam
i lies live herc, and we expect to remain here,
whatever may be the form of government.
We feel interested in the welfare and reputa
tion of a State, whose pe jple is thus ruthless
Jv as-ailed. We f el it a duty to ourselves,
to do ail in our power to refute tho slander
which this proclamation contains. And when
ono who claims to b* *' no Reptblican Gov
ernor, but Governor of the whole people,"
upon the testimony of " reports daily receiv
ed" from persons of whose character be knows
nothing, deliberately charges ui with rcsi
tancelo the laws, cold-blooded murder, ai
other crime* o? the most heinous charaeti
we almost fe.d provoked into lungu.tgu nw
strong than elegant. For we do most el
phaticallj contradict -the truth of the inf?
manon upon which, these charges are base
so far as this county is concerned.
There has not been a ?tingle instance of i
sistance to the laws in Union County.
There have, been only two homicides sin
January last ; one, a negro killed by a rregi
upon sudden quarrel; thc other, a white m
killed by a white man, in a dispute abo
their crup-both wholly disconnected frc
politics-the opposing parties in each ca
being of the same political faith.
'?here'has been ito case ol u families fore
to abandon their homes and property by fe
of violence."
The authority ot tho officers of the Sta
Government in. this County hus not bei
" openly derided and denied."
" Threats of violence and death are" JJ
" uttered against prominent members of tl
Rcpub'ican party, if they attempt to visi
this "district for the purpose of discussing I
I tical questions of the day." Ou the cu
trary, many of the Republican leaders in tl
State have been herc, have'delivered politic
addresses, und gone away unharmed.
Radical meeting was held here ou Saturdi
last, atleu le 1 hy ui inv white met;, ai
speeches were m ide by Lucius Wiuibush,
Cuu?ter, and other members of thc ?Legis1
turo, at which (hero was no disturbance u<
interruption, but everything passed eil'quiet
au J orderly.
'. Dec! rations arc" not "made by pcrsoi
calling themselves Democrats, of their detc
minatioa nut to permit their politic.il opp
tients to vote at the ensuing election."
Firearms have been introduced ; but G>
emu- Scott bas been infirmed over and ov<
again, thai they were not introduced for tl
purpose of controlling thc electim, but Wei
intended solely for protection against tl
armed bands of negroes, which he know
have long been parading hero.
" The public.highways ar.)" not "pickete
and pair lied by armed men."
And lhere is not " a systematic effort, ti
intimidation and abuse, to deter colo! ed in?
from the exercise of the elective franchise ;
unies? it be by mon belonging lo the piny?
which Governor Scott gives such utunistaki
ble signs of being a zealous member.
There have not even been any ca?es, wit
us, of that incendiarism, now so prevulef
al! over the State ; but of winch this M Got
ernor of the whole people" takes no nolie
iu his proclamation.
We l?av> thus denied the charges seriaiin
and we defy the proof. No civil officer i
this County has complained to Governc
Scott of obstruerions in the execution of th
law. lt' private individual bave complain?,
on behalf of s dil effi ors. Governor Scott, nc
nuil other official, has ci cr applied to one sin
(fe eitil rffixr in Union Conni;/ to know
the complaint was just. We deft' contradi
tiou. ii-i it
llesolccd. That the matters and thing

To Ute People of South Carolun.
FKLLOW-CITIZKNS : As members of you:
State Executive Committee-u.body whie!
represents neatly every white citizen ol Soutl
Carolina-we feel it oar duty to invoke youi
earnest . (forts in the C.iuso of peace arid tin
preservation of order. We beg you to unit?
with us in reprobating these recent acts o
violence, resulting in thc death o? Martin
Randolph and Nance, by which a few lawle.v
and reckless men have brought discredit OJ
the character of our people, though provoca'
lion ia lin sc eases may have b. en given. Nt
cause eau prosper which calls murder to iti
assistance, or which looks to assassination foi
success. " The idea of assassination," saic
Gc-orge Mcjhi?ie, " is so absolutely abhorrent
to all the feelings, the Christian feelings ol
modern tim ec, and of such pernic ious ten
dency, that 1 feel it to be my duty thus une
qn;vo-ally to express my u.lcr abhorrence ol
any proceeding that may have the remotest
tendency to suggest it. Such a course is not
only < bnoxious to the abhorrence of every
honorable man, from its moral atrocity, but
Iront its political tendency."
Listen to the words td* that patriot, which
seems to come from Li-? grave, to warn tht
people whom he loved so devotedly. Weean
ad-J nothiug lo the weight .of this great au
thority. We eau only appeal to you, to sup
port thc laws, to preserve the peace, and to
ilcuouuce those crimes which have so recent
ly been Committed in some portions of our
State. We .-peak in behalt of the conserva
tive and law-abiding portion bf the people,
who constitute, we feel a<surcd, nearly our
entire white population, and in their name
wc express emphatically our abhorrence of
such acts ; ami we p'.edgo ourselves to give
all thc assistance iu our power to suppress
them. We a-jure all who love their State, of
all classes, while and black, to be peaceable
and quiet, to lend their ift?rt< to promote
harmony and to quell* dissension. We ask
Ibosc who are opposed to us, politically, to
unite with us to check and discountenance all
incendiary language whether uttered ju public
or private, and to join u? in I be efforts weare
making tor thc preservation of peace, the sn
preiuaey of law and thc uiatiitcnahceoforder.
L .wles.siic.vs will endm-ger I he peace ot the
'whole State, and wi'l surely bring disaster to
all classes. Lei us all. then, however we may
ditl' r in politics, devote all our energies to
muintai.i the good character of our State, and
to promote a belter feeling among our whole
Manifesto from the South Carolina He
To tilt Republican* of South Carolina:
.'Let vs have pince" So says our great
and good leader, General Grunt. So say all
good Republican*. So Kay we, the uudei
sigued members of the Republican party in
South Carolina. We hold that the Republi
can party is emphatically the party of peuce
and quiet, of law and order. We hold that
any mar who will commit or encourage
violence or lawlessness-, ls a (Criminal, and
merita the unqualified condemnation of all
good Republicans. We censure, without re
serve, all thc'recent act3 of violence; not on
ly the horrible murders of Martin, Randolph
and Nance,- of our owu party, but also ihe
fibing upon Ward at Newberry, and the acts
of incendiarism at Abbeville and elsewhere,
ll Republicans luve been engaged in any of
lln-se outrages, we denounce them as false to
the ptincip'cs of our party, an ! as criminals
justly meriting the s-verest penalties of the
law. Violence in only ju>tifi :d in self-defence,
and never in retaliation or for revenge. It is
the business ol the law to punish crimes, and
not of individua*?.
We hail with .-?atisfiiotion the address of
tim Democratic State Central Com mit We as
the harbinger of belter and more quiet times
We will gladly unite with the leaders of the
Democratic party in d ing all in our power
to prevent incendiary language, to preserve
th i pi;ac", to maintain order, and to assert
the supremacy of tho laws. Wu urge upon
Che leaders and speakers in the Republican
party the necessity of discountenancing and
condemning violence on ad occasions. Wc
call upon every member of tho Republican
party, white or colored, to abstain from all
acts of retaliation and violence, and to do all
in bis power to have the guilty persons ar
rested and punished, whether they be Repub
licans or Democrats. Let not the good natue
and uoble principles of thc Republican party
be tarnished by acts of bloodshed or other
crimes. Let it be seen that the Republican
party of the South, like that of the great Re
publican party o' the North, is the earnest
and consistent advocate of law and order, of
Eeacc and harmony, of bamauity and justice,
ict every Republican be found ready to as
sort and vindicate his rights anr1 his manhood
at I ho ballot-box. But every jrood and true
Republican will scorn to violate the luw.

Who Struck Billy Patterson?
Gov. Scott, did you do it? Prince (of dark
ness) Rivers, v.hat say you.' Frank Arnim,
thou pink of m-'desty and fritterer of tho King's
English, nro you guilty ? If it is not asking too
much, the freemen of Edgefield desire' to know
when, Where, und why they were deprived of the
right to vjte in thu elections this day being held
throughout tho United States. Was it, that after
a careful turvey of tho political field, you saw de
feat at the ballot-box awaited your party, and
hence concluded upon the s'rategic move of no
election ; or was it due to the credulity and tim
idity of Root, Cain and Leo-the Tray, Blanch,
and Sweetheart of your party ?
We have made repeated euquiries to find out
the responsible man, but our efforts have prov.n
au fruitless ns the interrogatory, " who struck
Billy Patterson ? Diligont search has been made
at Columbi ., Hamburg and Edgefield C. H., for
tho individual, and " not in," and " stet ynilty"
wero thc replies received.
But to ba serious-this much is certain, tho
deed h is been done by some one, and thu respon
sibility, which has bi on pitched like a tennis hull
from one place and porson to another, rests some
where. Why hus this wrong been put upon Edge
field, and not upon other Districts ? What undi
vulged crimes and misdemeanors ban she been
guilty of, that thia navel proceedure ahould be
used ? Wo hare thls's'wsay to these adventurers
and po! ?ti,-.il mountebanks, whoo ver thoy be, that
a day of reckoning will com ;, when such outrageB
upon the rights of the people ?ill m t gi " u
whipped of justice ;" that their hour of misru'e
will soon end;-already, in our judgment, their
political " orb has passed its full."
. History teaches, and experience abundantly
confirms the fact, that ignorance must be subordi
nate ta intelligence ; that an educated minority
has ruled, and always will rule, an ignorant ma
jority ; that the tane-cnlvtte* of a country must
succumb to its wealth ; that whenever this is not

ocedr y tin's unjustifiable outrage on law and
order, Rod thc pence of society, and know that
the same is univctsally condemned by the many
high-toned gentlemen living tu tbe immediate
vicinity where this uufurtunMo and rad affair was

Direct Communication with Liverpool?.]

juite an acquisition to tho future p- sperity of

right direction, and wo trust that every energy

The Governor** Peace Proclamation? j
In our last issue we publisbel a Proclamation*
from Qov. SCOTT, which, to ray .he least, was an
un wararn ted "libel on the people of our District J
and the other Districts mentioned therein. Io
that proclamation, which by the way, he must
have issued solely as a campaign document, for
effect in the Northern Sutes, he charged our citi
zens with all manner of evil and damnable deeds, j
and even threatened to arm the " loyal citizens,"
-the brutal negroes-and put them in authority j
over us. ,..
But an astonishing change has come over the.|
war-like spirit of the mighty SCOTT within tho
lost few days, and now he is as mild and gentle
as a pct lamb; his manifostod malignity and har j
trod appears to have oozod out at his finger's end,
and in the annexed proclamation he nier s the
'. Pipe of Peace." We are gratified at this proper
course of the Governor's, and in maintaing the
"peace, prosperity and honor of our beloved
State," none will givo him more wi.ling succor
and support than tho law-abiding and ever-hon
orable people of Edgcfield. Here is the peace
PrucUUuution :

FBLLOW-CITIZKMS : The numerous complaints
made to this Departmont of murders and out
rages, committed by wicked and inconsiderate
persons, cxcited'by intense party feeling, made
it my duty to issue tho late proclamation, calling
upon all good and true men, without respect to
political predilections, to unite in a determination
to discouutenance and denounce lawlessness and
violence, and in an effort to recover and main
tain the good nat that has heretofore been the
heritage and the pride of our beloved State. It is
now my pleasing duty to congratulate you upon
the beneficial results that have ensued fruin toe
admirable and w?<I1-tl(n?d address of G-n. Hamp
ton and the Executive Cummittee to the Demo
cratic party. lu honest and impressive torms
they have called on the people to support tbe
laws, to preserve .the peace, and to denounce
those crimes wbicb have so roeently been com
mitted ia some portions of our State. These pa
triotic eoudsels cannot fail of having a wide und
wholesome influence in moderating the vehemence
of feeling of those to whom they are authorita
tively addressed, while they have quieted the Hp*
prehensions aud conciliated the respect and good
will of their political opponents. This is cer
tainly m just cause of congratulation to every
well-wisher of the State, and it givus me uu
feigned pleasure to acknowledge it, and to ear
nestly invoke the co operation of every member
of the Republican party io reciprocating,' to the
fullest extent, the pacific policy * > admirably in
culcated by the Democratic hiders. Let a er? m te
nions and irritating discussions be avoided, anfl I
appeals be mud. tn tb? intelligence uud tousoa^f
and not to iiic tauru nr passions, of tbe coin ti. uni
ty. Differ as wo may in political sentiments, it
is the dictate alike of wisdom and patriotism for
nil to appeal t?, and confide in, the ifficacy of
peaceful remedies for political evils, actu.il or
eupposod. Let " hear and forbear" bo our maxim,
and so shall the peuce, prosperity and honor of
our beloved State bc maintained and perpetuated,
and ber time-honored escutcheon will be pre
served, unsullied mid undimmed, in all it? origi

The Editor, in presenting the Farmer to his al
ready numerous readers, says :
"The agricultural interests of the two Caroli
nas have long felt the want of a periodical suited
to their climate, soil and productions. Many at
tempts have heretofore been made to establish
.ueb a periodic?! on a permanent and success ul
iasis, but iron- some cause, to us inexplicable,
?very such enterprise hus failed.
Tnat the farmers and planters of North Caroli
na and Sruth Carolina will sustain a first-cUss
igricultural journal we cannot doubt It is their
merest to do so; and we shall go on with dur en
terprise, confident that the day in not far distant
irhcn the CAROLINA PA HUI: II will be wcceptable to

We rely on the enterprising farmers acd pla??
ers of our section to aid us in extending our cir?!
tulatiou. N* farmer is so poor that be cann
.fiord to pay two dollars for a good agriculture,

hat it will not amply repay the invos'ment. Ev?

MR. EDITOR,-Would it not be well, amidit ihe
?onvulsions of the boor, and the uncertainty of
tbe fnture, to turn our attention more earnestly
to the material improvement of oar State, that wo
may be better prepared to meet whatever istnei
are presented with success ?
It is apparent that the difficulties before ns are
not ordinary ones, and it will require moro than
ordinary exertions to overcome them. In certain
contingencies, which are not improbable, a reign
of brute force may be expected in the. South, and
it will be necessary to support the moral influence
that will be brought to bear for its overthrow, by
those auzilliary resources springing alone from
wealth and.intelligent enterprise.
The first step towards the accumulation of these
resources is to build up our own seaports, and
concentrate the wealth derived from our trade in
the hands of those who- are friendly to oar inter
ests. All efforts to throw off the tyranny that hus
enslaved ns will be in vain until we learn to do
; ' The people of Charleston are our peoplo, and
in giving to the merchants of that city tho posi
tion and influence that it is in our power to give
them, we at once invoke a powerful ally in at least
rep ni rios; the broken fortunes of the State, and
Adeeming it from its degrading sway.
VWith present appearances, Northern capital may
be'oxpectcd to come here, when, under tho en
forced tuition of the Republican party, we are
reconciled to humiliations, and become the wit
ing victims of a capricious despotism.

tractive to the world, and the interests, the honor,
and tho glory of our Order, have been greatly
promoted ?a tbe estimation of beholders :

working number, society a benefactor, and hu
manity, a Friend.

?itizen? to aid me hereafter in carrying out
these instructions, and to that ead they are
?aroestly requested to refrain from assembling
D large bodies on. the streets, to avoid excit
ing conversation and other causes of irrita
tion and excitement and to pursue their or
dinary vocations as usual. The.police force
of the city has been je organized and ineffi

Gen. J. B. Steedman appointed Chief of po
