The condition of the affairs of the
State at this time causes the gravest con?
cern and most serious anxiety in the
minds of all good citizens. Taxation
unprecedented in amount in the history
of this State weighs upon tho people.
No man but feels the burden; but how?
ever and by whatever channels the taxos
reach the Treasury, they como finally, in
great part, from those who till the soil,
in the form of reduced wages, and the
increased cost of food, clothing and
other necessary expenses of a comfort?
able existence. The hard hand of toil
largely paye the expenses of the State,
though the money may be deposited in
the Treasury by those who own tho capi?
tal and the land. Let no man flatter
himself, therefore, that his poverty ren?
ders this subject of taxation one of in?
difference to him.
Besides the vast sums which have boen
drawn from the people by direct taxa?
tion, our rulers have been heaping other
burdens upon us and our posterity, by
enormous, and in many cases fraudu?
lent, issues of bonds, the very interest
upon which is a sum so large that it
seems impossible to pay it. Conceal?
ment of the real state of our affairs has
been practiced to a criminal extent; re?
port utter report, statemeut after state?
ment, has been made by the financial
officers of the State, making false exhi?
bits of our public debt; and it was only
wheu an outraged public opinion de?
manded and compelled au investigation,
that our real situation was developed,
and was found to justify tho worst ap?
prehensions which had boen felt.
The public mind is too familiar with
the fucta to require more to be said con
corning the bond frauds; but it is worth
while to consider here the question,
what has become of the money so lavishly
poured into the Treasury? To what ob?
jects have we seen it appropriated by
those who, under the law, are appointed
to disburse it? Have the rights of per
son and property, whioh it is the specia
function of good government to guard,
been secured? Have the children of tin
people been furnished with the means o:
that education whioh alone can fit then
worthily to perform the duties of citizen
ship? Have the humane institutions ii
charge of the State been cared for'
Have the resources of tho State boon
developed, its industries fostered, itt
present and future welfure provided foi
with reasonable prudence?
Tho answers to these questions are ii
the mouths of all the people. We an
ashamed to be compelled to confess tba
the State Government has failed to pro
tect the citizens, not only in the enjoy
ment of those rights and privileges in
tended to be seonred by the provision
of the State and National Constitutions
but even in those more limited right
which no respectable civilized Govern
ment ou earth allows to be violated ii
the persons of its subjects; and it ha
been the strong arm of (he Federal Gc
vernment which has released thousand
of men, women and children from a tei
ror with whioh they could not fail to b
filled by countless outrages perpetrate
upon their friends, relatives and neigt
bore, by conspirators, whose deeds th
world reads of with horror.
The publio schools have been cripple
in their work, and in many cases closet:
because their teachers applied in vain t
the State Treasury for the small salarie
justly due them and necessary to the:
daily support. ?
The inmates of the Lunatic ?sylui
must have been turned loose upon tb

nobody would sell on that of this grei
State. The doors of the penitential
may bo flung wide open any day, to allo
the exit of a band of oonviots, whom tl
warden cannot feed, becauso there is 1
money in tho State Treasury to pureba:
food. The judgeB of your courts hai
not been puid their salaries for mar
months, and are compelled, iu mo
coses, to borrow money to supply tl
wants of themselves and their familie
and to be subjected to tho temptatioi
too often placed by rich saitors before

It would be easy to continue at almo
any length in enumerating what has bet
loft undone which ought to have bei
done. It is easier to say what has bei
done whioh ought to hare been left u
done. Jobs of every conceivable d
scription have been undertaken, the i
terests of tho State have been constant
and systematically sot asido to enrii
those who sorupled at no kind of bribe
or corruption to secure such logislatii
as the jobbers required.
Public money has been squalider
for objects of no pnblio moment. T
expenses of some branches of the G
vernment have been so enormously j
creased as to astonish all who are n
familiar with the oharacter of many
those who All important positions in t
..Pay certificates," drawn by t
Speakorof the House of Repr?sentativ?
purporting to be for expenses of the h
session, to the amount of over $1,00
OOO, have already appeared at the Tn
sury and been paid or exchanged for t
notoa of tho Treasurer, and it in et
mated by those in a position to jnd
wisely, that $250.000 in "pay cert
cates" is still afloat in the community,
be presented whenever there is any p
bability of their being allowed. Tl
will make the expenses of a singlo s
sion of tho General Assembly o'
$1,250,000, or moro than 4,000 per ce
of the sum whioh was formerly cousid
od sufficient to pay thom.
Euormons sums havo been lavished
pretended support of an "armed fore
which is notoriously non-existent.
The most corrupt practices have 1
tai ned io the making of contracts by
State officials. The contract with the
Roberts and other arms companies of
New York, nnder which there was drawn
from the State Treasury over $200,000,
while said arma company received less
than $90,000, is a type of the manner in
which the State Treasury has been de?
pleted. The public are familiar with the
enormous extent of the bills for State
printing. Formerly this item of ex?
pense for a session of the Legislature
was not one-fiftieth, certainly uot one
fortieth, of what it has been during the
year past. But to catalogue the abuses
existing in the executive and legislative
branches of the State Government,
would not ouly weary our patience and
sicken your hearts, but one who should
attempt to characterize them would beg?
gar the English language in looking fot
fit terms. You already know them ic
gross. You can hardly appreciate theil
enormity in detail till you examine thc
facts and figures. We allude to but t
few of them aa specimens of the kind o
expenses that have brought the credit oj
South Carolina so low that there is "nom
so poor to do it reverence," and whiot
have made the government of the Stat?
so odious to the people of the wholi
lu this condition of affairs, what is tb.
duty of the Republican party? Tues
wrongs ara in no way the result of th'
action of its principles. They arise fron
the greed, and selfishness, and corrup
tion of those who have stolen the gar!
of Republicanism to cloak their evi
deeds, and who should be cast out of th
company of honest Republicans an
honest men, as having degraded thei
Our plain duty points to this; ou
obvious interests demand this; the inte

Within tho lines of the Republican part
our work lies. There are honest hear
and wiso heads enough in that party I

ever his party affiliations may have beei
owes it to himself to work to purify at

the work especially belongs to us. V

of all men before tho law is that psi
lar jewel which outshines, with us, c
brilliant in its casket. But hones
office, capacity in administration, fie
to public trusts, are principles v
cannot bo ignored by true Rupubli
aud we cauuot endorse tho action
Convention which ignored thea
iu its selection of a candidate
the higbopt State office, hov
"regular" that Convention may be. We
have, therefore, joined in a movement
for the nomination of au independent,
true Republican ticket; a ticket contain?
ing the names of men whose fidelity to
the dictates of honesty and duty is as
well known as their zeal in the causo of
true Republicanism. They are firm sup?
porters of the nomination of Grant and
Wilson, and of the great measures of the
national Republican party which has
placed them in nomination, while they
add to their oharaoter for integrity, su?
perior capacity and ardent patriotism.
We appeal to the voters of the State
of South Carolina to support them,
knowing that their election will give us
a wise, honest, energetio administration
of the State Government, and that they
will, regardless of their private interests
or the private interests of any set of
men, make it their business to repair, to
the extent of their ability, the injuries
the body politio has suffered by waste,
extravagance, fraud and incompetency.
Now is the acoepted time to route
yourselves and throw off the incubus
whioh has lain, worse than a night-mare,
upon our State; and whioh will be ten?
fold increased in its horrors should Mr.
F. J. Moses, Jr., be seated in the execu?
tive chair. Refuse to avail yourselves of
this opportunity, and ere many months
have passed over our heads, dire disaster,
without a parallel even in our disastrous
experience, may be confidently antici?

SECOND GRAND GIFT CONCERT!
Day of the Drawing Fixed.
No Postponement from September 28.
TO TUB PUB Lal C t
The Trasteos of the Public Library of Ken?
tucky, being satisfied, from the large sale of
tickets already made, and tho daily increas?
ing demand for them, that there will be no
occasion for postponing the second drawing
in the Oift Concert in aid of the Public
Library of Kentucky, have instructed mo, as
their agent and manager of the Oift Concort,
to say to the public and ticket-holders that
the drawing will positively take place on
September 29, proximo, and will not be post?
poned. An active demand for ticket s comes
from every State and Territory of th? United
Bt&teB, and from the Canadas, giving aesnr
anco to the Trustees that no circumstances
oan prevent i drawing at the appointed time.
A sufficient clerical force is engaged to keep
up with tho orders for tiokets, and in order
that this office may be relieved of the im?
mense pressure incident to the business for
tho week or two immediately preceding the
drawing, agonts especially, and those desi?
rous of procuring tiokets, are requested to
seed in their orders immediately, as saleB
will have to bo closed in time to make the
necessary preparations for the drawing. It
ls tho wish of the management to fill every
ordor for a tioket, as wall as to sell all the
tickets, but those who apply first must first
be supplied; and if thoso who put off baying
until sales are olosod have their money re?
turned, instead of tho tickets ordered, as in
the first Oift Concert in December last, when
thousands of dollars that came too late were
sent back, they will have none to blame bat
themselves. TUOS. E. BRAMLETTE,
