than Mr. Greeley:
You ask mo to toll you, my ohildron,
of tba events which imimuliittoly pro?
ceded the destruction of Ibo mian groat
I American Union, unit of thu Capture of
.the oountry by itt? (inmniil European
rulers, and to say timon th lng, ulm?, of
tho cansos which Ind to i hom tloplOrublu
results. I li ti dur tull n tho lanie with a
hoavy heart, for whenever 1 revert to
that terrible time, 1 cannot help con
trusting our proud condition up to thut
I fulul your willi the humiliating position
I occupied now by tho American people.
Th? story is u Bhort ono. In tho full of
1872, iloruco Greeley, tho editor of a
newspaper in New York, was elected
President of tho United States. The
people voted for him 'because they be
lloved him to bo an honest men. And
so ho was. But ho was aliso vain aud
we.uk, aud bo entertained certain fanati?
cal and preposterous notions-about
agricultural mutters, foriustuucu-which
be was determined to force upon the
people nt all hazards, and despite all op?
position. II o believed, among other
things, that overy man ought to go to
the West to euru his bread, and, long
before ho was chosen President, he used
to advise'everybody tu move to I bat re?
gion as a eure for all the disasters which
could befall tho human family.
As so?ti ns he readied the Executive
mansion, which we used to cull the
White House, President Greeley organ?
ized an army of 200,000 men, and pro?
ceeded to force tho entire population of
the seaboard States Westward nt thc
point of the bayonet. The ntmost vio?
lence was used. Those who resisted
were shot down, and their bodies were
carted o IT .to a national factory, which
the President had established for making
some kind of a fantastical fertilizer. Al
t)io' large cities of the East were depopu
luted, and the towns were entirely empty
The army swept before it millions o
mon, women and children, until the vas
plains West of Kanpa? ?were reached
when the pursuit ceased, and the arm;
was drawn np in a continuous liue, witl
orders to shoot any person who attempt
ed to visit tho East. Of course hundred
of thousands of these poor creature
perished from-starvation. This 'seeonee
to frighten President Greeley, and hi
sent a message to Congress recommend
ing that 700,000* volumes of a book ?
his, entitled "What I Know about Farm
ing," should be voted for tho relief o
the starving sufferers. This was done
und farming implements aud seeds wer
supplied; and then the millions' o
wretched outcasts mado an effort tq ti!
the ground. Of the. result of this,
will speak further on.
lu the meantime, the President wo
doing infinite harm to the country in ar.
othor wuy. His hand-writing" was s
fearfully aud wonderfully bad that u
living man could read it. And so, who
be sent his first annual message to Cor
gross-the document was devoted wholl
to the tariff and to agriculture-a set
tc nco appeared which subsequently Wi
asaertuined to be "Large cultivation c
rutabagas and heans is the only hope c
tho American nation, I um sure." TL
printers not being able to interpret thii
put it in the folio wing form, in whioh
went forth to the world: "Tho Czar <
Russia couldn't keep clean if he wushe
himself with the whole Atlantic Oceu
once a dayl" This perversion of tl:
message was immediately telegraphed I
Russia by the Russian Minister, and tl
Czar was so indignant that he instant!
declared war. Just at this time Pres
dent Greeley audertook to write son
letters to Prince Bismarck on the sui
joot of potato rot, and after giving h
singular views at great length, he coi
eluded with the statement, thut if U
Emperor William said that sUb-sc
ploughing was not good in light soils, <
that guano was better than bone-dust, 1
was "a liar, a villain and aslavel" (
course, the Emperor also immediatel
declared war, and* became an ally <
Russia und of England, aguiuut whit
latter country Mr. Greeley had actual
begun hostilities already, because tl
Queen in her speech from the thron

these nations joined in making \\
upon the Uuite.d States. They swoop
down upon the coasts and lauded wit
out opposition, for those portions of o
unhappy country were, absolutely deso
ed. The President was afraid to c
away tho army from Kansas, ut first, f
fear the outraged people upon tho plui
would como Eust in spite of him. 13
ut last, he did summou tho army to 1
aid, and it moved tu meet the enemy,

can throrjo, and' the other humiliations
that ensued, jt was a fearful blow to
Republicanism-a blow from which it
will never recover. It mada us,, who
wero freemen, n nation of slaves. It
wuH all tho result of our blind confidence
in a misguided old man, who thought
himself a philosopher, but who wns
actually a fool! May Heaven preserve
yon, my children, from tho remorse I
feo! when I remember that I voted for

TUB ELECTION. - Tho proclamation
which in to aunouueo tho election ia in
course of preparation by the City Attor?
ney, und will bo mado public to-morrow
morning. Tho Muy or elect will not take
bin seat until the term of the press?t in?
cumbent shall have legally expired,
which will bo in November next. Tho .
present regime will retire gracefully and
will not lodge a protest. There was u
rumor afloat yesterday that a discovery
hud been made iii tho law whereby tho
Mayor elect could take his seut ten days
after installation, but it amounts to no?
thing. Things will take their regular
course, and the new officials will assume
tho reins of local government as stated.
Wo can well afford, in view of the glori?
ous triumph wo havo accomplished, to
bide our time;
nifest that the election hus had its ef
feots on the fiuances of the people ns
well as their hearts'and affections. City
stocks were dull and depressed aud have
improved considerably, and fairly
touched 57 yesterday. Real estate -is
looking np, and is in better demand,
while holders are stiff. For instance, a
piece ot property which a broker had
offered a few days before the result of
the election was known at $5,000, could
not be purchased yesterday at a' thou?
sand advance by the very party who
would not take it at tho first named
price. The change which has come over
tho people is certainly very encouraging
and inspiriting. If we will only look
I carefully to the futuro, it will ba crowned
with abundant success for us all.
NEGRO ROWDIES.-Tho colored Repub?
licans seem determined to avenge the
defeat their party have suffered by as?
saulting the Germans. Tho deeds -of
rowdyism, thieviugand persecution they
carried on Saturday night last were ter?
rible. They formed in squads of fifty
to"seventy-five, paraded the streets, in?
flicting ns much injury on the German
store-keepers, ns they esme across in
their line of march, as they could.
They walked into the different stores
they met with, drink what they wanted,
and purchased goods, and, as soon ns
they got them iu their possession, ran
off with them. Tho wivos of tho Ger?
mans HO persecuted Were terribly alarmed,
some of whom were at homo alone.
They indulged in insulting language,
brandished sticks, fired pistols, and de?
clared warogaiost the Germans generally.

Yesterday morning, Wm. M. Mitchell, a
white boy, thirteen years of age, whose
parents live at the corner of Market sud
Meeting streets, was sitting on Market
wharf, when three colored boys came

Private Secretary.
Commenting upon this, tho Timas
Bays :
There was no necessity for Governor
Scott's sending suoh a threat to the
pcoplo of this County.. White and Tins?
ley, the other two Commissioners,- re?
mained in 'this County for mouths after
they received the order to resign, with?
out being molested, while IL \V. Dun?
can, the Senator, .who was also ordered
to resign lu tho same mysterious man?
ner, and is now Hying iu Columbia, has
visited this County often, and remained
unmolested for many days at a time, and
departed in peaoo and safety.- There is
no danger that Giles will bo molested
by tho white people .pf Union.' He is
as safe hore, so far as danger from the
Democrats is concerned, n? he . waa in
Oolnmbia. But we cannot answer for
his safety from the intentions of the
Radical party. We believe the leaders
of that party have determined to ?mt
this County under martial law, with a
selected garrison and commander to exe?
cute that law, who will incarcerate, or,
perhaps, %%hang\" two or three hundred
Democrats to prevent their voting; and,
if the people of the County do hot give
them a pretext, for such an infamous
course of procedure, some unfortunate
oolored man of their party will be modo
a holocaust of for that very purpose. I
The Radicals do not forget how much
good the murder of pool Randolph did
for their party, and having the materials,
in that party so admirably united for
such vile acts, if greased with a few
greenbacks, wo shall nut bo surprised if
some such diabolical deed waa ^com?
mitted. We know this is a very ser iou 3
insinuation, but we cannot divest our?
self of that belief, that Randolph was
so sacrificed for party ends; and, if they
will do it once, we believe they-would,
bo likely to repeat the crime when they
see greater danger of defeat storing them
in the face.
