' COLUMniA, April 4, 1SGS.
To Messrs. J. B. Campbell. W. JD.
Porter, James Conner, C. H. Simon
ton, Alexander H. Brown, and others,
sympathising with, and approving the
recent proceedings of, the Democratic
Convention at this place.
GENTLEMEN: Although tho city of
Charleston was not represented in
the recent Convention at this place,
we attribute this more to the short
notice given than to an indifference
to the momentous importance of the
action contemplated. We most ear?
nestly request and nrge that the
action of the Convention may have a
response from the city of Charleston.
By the aotion of the so-called Con?
stitutional Convention, we know that
you have been put iu a lean minority
by tacking your city on to the Dis?
trict of Berkley. But notwithstand?
ing Buoh evident discouragement,
and a prospect of success so hopeless,
it will not do for BO large and im?
portant a oommunity to remain list?
less and inactive in a struggle which
the rest of the State has inaugurated,
and in which a large port of our
people are now fairly embarked. We
hope, therefore, that we shall soon
see a pnblio recognition of our action
in your city.
The Committee most urgently heg
that the Hon. W. D. Porter will be
induced to accept the nomination for
Governor, and we request that you
will use all your influence to bring
about such a result. We remain,
gentlemen, very respectfully,

CHARLESTON, April 9, 1808.
To Messrs. J. P. Thomas, F. W. Mc
Master, and S. H. Hamilton, for
Central Committee of the Democratic
parly of South Carolina, Columbia,
GENTLEMEN: On receipt of your
letter of the 4th instant, we gave our
immediate consideration to your
As tho best means, boyond our
own personal observations, to judge
of tho sentiment, we invited the
Senators and Representatives of the
city in the last General Assembly,
and about the same number of citi?
zens, on whose knowledge and judg?
ment in such matters we rely, au d
who might also be fairly considered
representative men, to meet in free
consultation. This meeting took place
last evening, and resulted in the
ndop3jru of the following resolution,
\\h ich we have the honor to hand you : '
W Resolved, That the gentlemen to
whom the letter in behalf of "the
Central Executive Committee of the
Democratic party of South Carolina,"
at Columbia, was addressed, be re?
quested to reply thereto, and in their
reply to s ta ut, that after conferring
with a large number of their fellow
citizens, mis meeting regrets that an
opportunity was not afforded the
people of Charleston to meet with
their fellow-citizens in Columbia,
ami confer with them as to the proper
policy to be pursued in the present
juncture of public affairs. And fur?
ther, that this meeting is of opinion
that the people of the city of Charles?
ton do not oonour in the views which
.seem to have governed the gentlemen
recently assembled at Columbia, an
to the p?oper polioy to be pursued iii
the present condit'^ a of affairs.
It is proper for ns to say that this
resolution is not to be understood to<
express a want of concurrence in
your opposition to the Constitution
winch maybe, foi* a brief time, forced
upon the State by military und
usurped power, or uuy want of sym?
pathy io your purpose to thoroughly
organize and harmonizo the friends
of civilization and constitutional
government for preseut and future
emergencies. Upon th OHO points we
have discovered no difference in
opinion. Upon others there is not
perfect unanimity. Most of us, how?
ever, have foiled to discover any
sound policy or suflicietit reason for
expressing, at this particular time, an
opinion upon the subject of negro
suffrage, and especially for differing
in this respect, nob only from tho
great political party with which yon
purpose to affiliate, but nlso from the
sweeping current of public sentiment,
which hos already rebuked our op?
pressors by its triumphs in Ohio,
Pennsylvania, New York, New Jer?
sey, California, Connecticut, and even
now in Michigan.
It is undoubtedly true that there
is with us a tolerance,' sympathy,
kindness and friendship, for the co?
lored raco, which is not to be found
where they and their helpless and
hopeful defect of character ure known
and not counterbalanced by expe?
rience of their natural kindness,
simplicity and docility. We know
that they are not ut this time
estranged from us, imponed upon by
tho arts and frauds of unprincipled
men, who make them their dupes to
obtain, through them, office and
power. We regret this uud would be
glad to remedy it.
But these do uot seem to be suffi?
cient reasons for our undertaking to
be their champions, at this time,
against the sentiment of those in
whom is the only present hope of
our and their rescue from endurance
of the frauds practiced upon them,
and the despotism and progressive
ruin closing in upon oursolves.
We think the return of the colored
race to a harmonious recognition of
the unwritten, but uot less certain
and imperative, laws which govern
the relation of labor to capital and
intelligence, cannot bo very long
delayed; but we do not think it will
be hastened by prematuro and sup?
plicating tenders of concessions,
which, in the excitement of their first
political campaign, are much likely
to be received with considerate ex?
amination than contemptuous sneers.
Most of us also think it was a hasty,
and, if we may be permitted to say so,
an unwise adventure to nominate
candidates for office under a constitu?
tion which is to be established by
usurpation and force, and which we
do not accept, but to which we are
compelled, ouly by military force, to
There are other parts of your pro?
ceedings, of less consequence, upon
which we withhold comment, because
we do not suppose our approbation
waa expected, and in- which we can?
not be considered to be implicated.
We are, very respectfully, your

GENTLEMEN: Your letter of April S
has been received. In reply, it if
deemed necessary to reply only to
thal portion of your communication,
which "regrets that an opportunity

I have been instructed to say, ic

ACTUAL SERVICE OF BLACK TROOPS
An exchange says: There hos bee
sueh a deal of clamor about th
"loyalty" of the negroes in th
South, and the services roudered b
them in putting down the robellioi

bureau of colored troops will be ii

This sable Government, so-called,
is still in a state of civil war. Sal
nave, who ia called President, hut
who has been as much dictator as
dictators usually are, continues to
fight against tho "rebels," as they
are styled. It was believed that he
would Boon be overcome, as the
rebels had gained great advantages
over him; but last accounts repre
resent him ns having recaptured a
fort on the South side of Port au
Prince, which was recently taken by
Nissage, a black General, expects
to be President, nnd is marching
upou Port au Prince, where Salnave
will resist him with all his strength.
The war has been conducted with a
brutality worthy of savages, and
Salnave threatens that if the rebel?
lion is successful, he will barn the
capital. So determined a brute is a
fit ruler of tho Hay tiens, who, by
their own cruelties and caprices, have
proved themselves to be worthy of
no better man.
The revolutions and vicissitudes of
the late Spanish American provinces
are easily accounted for, by the fact
that Spain was never able to trans?
port to them euough men of Euro?
pean blood to control in govern?
mental matters and general economy,
save while backed by military author?
ity. Tho moment that, through her
embarrassments and troubles at
home, she lust those provinces, the
mixed nud mongrel populations which
composed them became the govern?
ing classes, aud the result hos been a
constant succession of revolutions,
attended with' bloody revenges and
But when we look to Hayti, we
find no complications from the mix?
ture of incompatible races. The trne
African was prevalent and omnipo?
tent. Ho took into his hands a well
ordered Government, a flourishing
State, with a grand commerce. The
negro could never have a better op?
portunity to show his capabilities.
And yet, what has he done in fifty or
sixty years with suoh a country and
with unlimited scope for his own
talent? Why, he has reduced Hayti
nearly to barbarism, and the olose of
sixty years finds that most fertile of
fertile lands a prey to anarchy and
This is the fairest example of Afri?
can adaptability to civilization and
civil order that has ever been pre?
sented to the world. There can
never be a better or a fairer one.

BIENTAI? DEPRESSION_Mental de?
pression is a disease of tho nervous sys?
tem, and of all the ills flesh is heir to, it is
tho one that excites the least sympathy.
It is a subject of frequent jests, and Ia
called by various derisivo terms; but, al?
though it is often laughed at, it is not
easy to laugh tho patient ont of tho belief I
that his ills aro all real, for it is a real dis
ordtr- tho general features of which are
constant fear, anxiety and gloom. The
external senses, as well as tho mental
faculties, often manifest symptoms of de?
rangement. Noise, as of falling water,
and ringing in the oars, are complained of,
while black Bpecks and flory sparks fre?
quently flit before the vision. Admonitions ]
like these should not bo disregarded, as !
they may, if neglected, terminate in in?
sanity. The seat of the disease 1B in the I
brain and nervous system, and to control
the malady it is necessary to use a power?
ful tonio and alterativo, which will correct
and tone those organs without inflaming
tho brain. This is tho secret of the suo
ccsB of HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT- |
TERS in casea of this kind, for which it is
tho safest as well aa the best of restora?
In fact, it ie the only puro and reliable
tonic stimulant known. Many nostrums,
purporting to be tonics, are puffed up
from time to time in tho newspapers, but
tho Bufferer had better let tliom alone.

proven itself, by many years of trial, to be
in every respect what it ia represented to
bo. May 27 +6
