The Days ?Wo Liyo In."
It is a time of sudden political changes, and
popular sentiment, chninelcon-likc. varies with
every passing circumstance. The headlong
rush of the American Government towards
cen.tralir.ation?of power, is uucqualcd by any
thing in modern history. States arc becoming
counties of a greater and moro powerful,State,
composed, not of a union of sovereignties, but
of a number of subdivisions, conveniently made
for the administration of local affairs, but all
subject to the will.of a central government, the
supreme power of which is located in Congress:
The old balance of power is destroyed, which
existed between the General Government and
the several States of the Union; and that
other balance existing betwecu the different
departments of that General Government is
also overturned-; so that the Executive and
Judicial Departments have become mere satel
lites of the Legislative. Congress has become,
like the Senate of Ancient Homo'in tho later
days of that Republic, a dictatorial body, iesuing
its mandates to military governors, the praetors
and pro-C.msuls of these modern times; and
speaking with tho authoritative voice of a body
able to enforce its mandate:*.
With us, with who arc now tho bbjC'ds 01
the peculiar legislation of a Congressional
majority, it is proper we should consider well
our situation. We uo longor enjoy the hope
of assistance (Vom the Supremo Court, from the
Executive, or from any other source, to rescue
us fromasoeond Reconstruct ion by the bayonet,
under the Military and Supplemental Acts
This being the ease, as we are compelled to ac
quiesce in these results; and as a Convention is
about to be held, the proceedings of which will
bind us, whether"we participate in voting for
delegates to it or not, is it not u?.r part, as
prudent men. to vote for such delegates as we
can confide in, to represent tho truo interests of
our people, and to. induce as many others as
possible to pursue the same course, rather than
to rest supinely, and say, we will take no part
in this matter ? If a Convention of the people
?of Soutl i Carolina is to be held, Orangcburg
should be there, properly represented' and
those of the people of our District, who have
exercised the right of suffrage for many years,
and have always sent to the Councils of the
State men of whom no section need be ashamed,
?those who huve voted in the past, owe it as
a duty to those who arc now for tho first timo
to exercise that important privilege, that they
should give them the benefit of their experience
in advising them how to vote, so as to main
tain the ancient reputation of Orangeburg un
The suffrage of the citizen is not a naked
privilege: it is a franchise coupled with a
trust. It is a right, which, in ordinary times,
can be exercised or not, at the discretion of
tho privileged party : but. in a great crisis,
when the most important issues are to be de
cided, it is a solemn duty to the State which
no one Can coiiscientiou.?ly evade, to take part
in every public measure, where he can do any
thing fo / dvance the true interests of the com
monwealth, und uRust in the maintenance of
liberty, justice and right.

As I informed you would probably be tiie
case, the Union Republican Convention whuh
assembled h?re last weck? accomplished noth
ing advantageous to thb party;, in-fnet. it Was
rather injurious in its developments and re
sults. Dissensions sprang up between the up-v
country aud the Seaboard delegates, and be
sides-most of tho blacks felt, and many, ex
pressed, a distrust of tho disinterestedness of
tho motives and- advice of their white eo-ad
jutors. . ^ j ^ j
Tho day alter the Contral Committee, em
? * f: j ?
bracing several whites, had been appointed, an
effort was mnd? to rescind the action of the
Convention, and remodel tho committee, by ex
punging tho names of all not citizens of Afri
descent. Tho effort fni|?d, but during the de
bate, which attended it, much fooling was ex
hibited, and the poor parasites were targets at
which several colored orators aimed their shaTj^.'"
The Convention adjourned Friday to rc-asscin
blc at the Capital on the 27th of July next.
The annual' Convention of the South Caro
?liua Diocese of the Episcopal Church, was also
iu session here last week. Both the clergy aud
the laity of the different Districts were largely
in attendance, and the meeting was a pleasant
and harmonious ouo. Tho roport of the vene
rable and beloved Bishop Davis was singularly
interesting, and the statistical ? portions indi
cated that his duties hud not been unattended
by considerable mental and physical labor.
During the year past, 28U whites and 79
blacks haVo been confirmed. ?
The Committee on Education reported that
efforts had been and would continue,to be
made for the moral and mental training of the
negroes, and it was hoped that several schools
would soon be in prnctical and successful ope

Bishop "Wight man of the Methodist "Church
^South), arrived here last Thursday, and re
mained until Tuesday, lie preached ?Sunday
and Monday to largo congregations, and their
rapt attention indicated that they .fully ap
preciated the eloquence for which ho has ever
been justly admired, and whose force years
have not impaired. The Bishop designs mak
ing Charleston his home, and he has perfected
his arrangements to remove her. next winter, j
At present he is located at Greensboro', Ala

Several accidents have occurred during tho
woek past from the careless handling of shells.
'The dealers in old iron have been gathering
large numbers from the debris id' Fort Sunder
and the vicinity of the other works in the
Harbor, and in three instances in withdrawing

of these resulted fatally; the third was harm
less. It is remarkable how long powder re
tains its explosive power, and too much care
cannot be observed in handling war relics.

The above deserves move than ;i passing no
tice. It is not often, in these "days, that we
witness such faithfulness and devotion on the
part of servants. Both parties belonged to
.Mr. Davis's household, ami have shared with
him and his family their long protracted im
prisonment. They were his servants in Hieh
tuond. and ImVC remained true and faithful to
him through good and evil report. When, af-'
tor the evacuation of Richmond, the family
were compelled to move .Southward, Ellen
could not be persuaded to leave them, but
faithfully shared with them the toil and suhvr
,'n ? of those fearful days.

to go to him and help him in ministering to
his wants. When told that*the slender means
of the fallen family would hover-permit such
expenditure, his services wcro offered freeh
and gladly, without reward or remuneration.
When at last, arrangements were made and
means provided for him, and he found himself
within the Fortress, a part of his wages were
carefully laid aside, and have been regularly
sent home to South Carolina to his old mistress
(li!;e many others, impoverished by the war),
who, in his own words, had been as ger?i to
