cratic leaders had better 9omo to tbe
front and try, in title auspicious time
ot Democratic triumph efcewhere,
the virtue of a diflerent coarse from
that pursued by men who have so
signally failed in State craft. We
know not whether it is too late, or
whether, as General Preston thinks,
the people have been too thoroughly
demoralised ; but it seems to us that
some good old Simon-pure Demo
cratic newspapers and leaders in the
Palmetto State would do more good
in six months than anything elao.
One thing is certain : expediency,

Gbkknvillk Conspiracy. ? We
publish, ou the outside of our paper,
tbis week, the statement of bberifi'
Boutborn, ot Greenville county, and
the corroborating affidavit of Charles
Means, denying the charge made in
tho Union-Herald, that tho implica
tion ot Joseph Crews with tho mur*
der of Dr. Shell, was a conspiracy.
Fink Smith, >vho was also contined
in tho same coll with Albort Parks
and Wright Sullivan, at tho timo they
made their confession, also makes affidavit
corroborating the statement
of Mr. Southern, but we did not have
room to publish it. Sheriff Southern
is explicit and clear in all tho state*
n?ents ho makes, which is sufficient,
without the atlidavits of tho other
parties, to prove (what was well
known before) that tho charge made
in tho Union-Herald, was a myth.
No lair minded or sensible man,
who is acquainted with the gentle**
men whom Albert Parks and Wright
Hullivan attempted to implicate in,
what the Union*Herald attempted
to designate, the "Greonvillo conspiracy,"
would for a moment entertain
anj doubts as to tho falsity i>i iho
statement ; but as the chargo was
made, it was perhaps well enough
to meet it on the threshold, and bhow
to the public what means are resort*
ed to, to shield parties Irum a just
punishment that should he meted out
to them bjr tiie laws ot tlio country.

lion of tiio Democratic party in this
Slat?. Why not at onco adviHO tho
DomocraU to go ovor to tho Radical
camp in a body, without odging
around it in this way ? If tho Domocrata
desiro to redeem tho State, they
can only do it through organisation.
If they doHiro to seo Radical rulo continued,
they only havo to pursuo tho
coutbc suggested by theso jouroals to
insure it. Lot us porfoct a thorough
Dcmocratio organization, put a
straight ticket in tho field, ally ourselvos
with the groat national Democratic
party, and march with it to
victory in 1876. But if tho 'possum
policy is to bo continuod, let us ceaso
abusing Radicalism and pronching
DcmocrAtifi tlontrinn.
Maimk Election.?The election in
Maino does riot givo the Radical
party any consolation. This State
has always been concede J to that
party, but the results of the last
election tuakos it extremely doubt
ful if they aro to hold it any longer.
It gave Grant over thirty thousand
majority; two years ago it gave tho
itepublican candidate over eleven
thousand majority, and now thoy
only carry it by a little ovor four
thousand majority. In this ratio,
the Democrats will carry the next
election by several thousand majority.
Tho great tidal wavo is still
rolling on, and is destined to soon

A "PmoiiT."? State ^Treasurer
Cardoso and Comptroller General*
Dunn, are tSlowing paper pelloto at
each other. Dunn is the receiver
of the Solomon bank, by which the
State lost over two hundred (thousand
dollars, and Cardozo asks por<?
mission as State Treasurer and an
individual creditors of the bank,, to
make a personal examination of its
assets and tbe causes of its suspension.
This Dunn refused, and a
war of words is tbe results. "Tliere
is something rotten iii Denmark,"
and if this eoutrovers; is likely to
bo any benefit to the State, wo hope
it will be continued. But this a
thing we hardly expect; yet we say
"lay on McDuft'," etc.
California's New Governor.?
The Newly elected Governor of California,
Mr. Win. Irwin, has boon
editor of a country paper in that
State, the Yreka Union, since 18t>6.
While he is a country editor, and
perhaps because of that fact, he U
suid to be a wan ol conso and pa*
triotisin, as well as of sound priuci
pics. I no JNow Xork bun suggests
that, ns the editor ol tbo country
paper, his ambition to attain tho
otlice of Govornor maj bo justified,
but it be bad beou tbo conductor ot
a leading metropolitan journal ot
power and influence, it would bo a
sacrifice tor him to assume an ad*
ministrativo ofljeo. it is better to
rulo in tho domain ot ideas, rather
than to bear sway in appointments
to office, in pardons, and in vetoes.
Wo spent a few days in Pickens
last week. With the exception of a
few farms about old Pickens, tho
country along tlio road is gonorally
barren and unsettled, so that wo had
no opportunity of judging of tho
cro}>e. We heird, however, that corn
and cotton in Pickens wero verv
good. I'eoplo wero gathering fodder
and the line weather of the post ton
days assures a large crop of good
fodder. Tho town has improved
very little during tho lattyoar. Tho
trade ot tho town, we were told, hud
not been greatly affected by tho rail,
road stations, a few s ores being able
to do a good business. Tho place
has a flourishing reboot under charge
of ProfcBiior Carlisle, who soems to
givo getioral satisfaction. It it a real
temperance town, there being nu bar
rooius licensed there for several
years. Tho bomb uourlsh like a green
bay tree, and the people are umnot
lestcd by tho drunken yells of midnight
Iruinpe. In the good work of
education and temperance, Pickens

Tho inicsi new? (rum in nine will
doubtless sadden our Democratic
frionds who may reflect with bitter* I
Hess that they did not realty achieve
what the/ might havo and bo very
nearly achieved. When they succeeded
in reducing the Republican
majority from 11,400 to 4,300, it is
plain that but a little more effort
was needed to convert that narrow
minority into sufficient majority.
However, there is this satisfaction in
tho rotrospect?it is demonstrated
that tho State can oasily bo car ried
next year in tho n&ro important
contest, when its influence on nation
al ntlairs will bo even groator and
more beneficial than it is now. The
Congressional election is bo close as
yet to be in doubt. It would be
eminently fit that Mr. Mndigan,
whoso canidature has so largely
limped the party in the State, should
bo rewarded by an election. A significant
fact which wo common d to
our Republican friends is the steady
Democratic gain in every partof tho
State, not alono in tho cities. Tho
spirit of reform and revolt has reach**
ed the country districts, and that
means the death blow of Radicalism.
