COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Morning:, August 19,1874 A New Banner. The only manly voice which has yet been raised in the Radical party was heard in the Moral Convention, a week ago. The resolutions which were adopted have a einaere ring about them, and hit the nail directly on the' head' They acknowledge and stigma? tize the deplorable condition of pnblio affairs in this State, and the dnty of all citizens to exert their influence in be? half of good government. That influ? ence should be directed to discredit and overthrow those who, as leaders, have deceived the people, and, as men, have revelled in corruption. The gist of the action consists in the expressed and determined purpose to "prevent the re-election or election to office of any of the members of the corrupt ring or those who operate with them." They express themselves as "unalterably opposed to any member of the present or preceding State Administration being eleoted Governor of the State;" and they say it is "utterly useless to expect a true reform from those who have been recognized as leaders in the pa?t." Colored people, here is a stand? ard to which you can rally; here is a line of notion indioated which yon can follow with a prospect of good results. Wu hope that those who have erected that standard will be strengthened by the well-meaning men in their party everywhere, and that they will bear it with pride and confidence to every quarter of the State. It bus a mean? ing ' and a good one. It says down with' rings and ring-wormBj it pro? claims war on bad and corrupt men; it calls for hew men, who shall be both "intelligent and honest." There is some sense and earheBtneBB in this movement. There is hope? that good may comn out ?1 it. It has oar best wishes, We- commend these resolu? tions^ So- the'favorable consideration of the colored men, who are inquiring all over the Stute what , they shall do to rid themselves of bad inen und extri? cate themselves from their toils. Here is. the " way indicated 1 plainly. Cat loose.from them. Throw them ovec board. They are cheats. They reek with corruption. Avoid them as pes? tilence. Touch not the unclean thing. That ia ;tbe way,of safety; that is the only mode of. escape.. We : give the resolutions below: Resblve?,. That we feel deeply and heenly the great necessity for a faith? ful co- operation of all classes of Repub? licans in an effort to rid oar race, State and party of those who have; by their unfaithfulness to public tragt, robbery of the treasnry, anmindfulness of the dangers which surround as as newly made citizans, recklessness of their pnblio and private character, and u perfect indifference to the prosperity and happineas of those who elevated them to positions of hbnof, trust and emolumeut, brought unparalleled in? dignation, shame and disgrace upon the. colored race, the Republican party and oar State iu general. Resolved, That wo each pledge our? selves to return to our respective Counties and fields of labor and use all the influence that we may have to pre? vent tho re-eloction or election to office of any of the members of the oorrnpt ring or those who operate with them; and we farther pledge ourselves, as men loving honesty and truth, and occupying the holy position of ser? vants of God,- to denounce all minis? ters of tho Gospel who allow them? selves to be used as tools, in the inte? rests of bad men, as enemies of our people and unfit to be spiritual teach? ers in our midst. Resolved, That we, as a body and as individuals, are unalterably opposed to any member of the present or preced? ing State administration being eleoted by oar party to the position of Go? vernor of this State, who has proved reoreant to the principles of Repub? licanism, and whom we believe will not ably and honestly subserve the true interests of the people, and that we will support and advocate only a true Republican from the ranks of oar party. Resolved, That, in oar opinion, it is utterly aseleas to expect a true reform in oar party from those who have been recognized us leaders in the past, and who have betrayed the confidence of the people; and that if we are to have in truth a obange in action, we must hstvs s, change in men, and to this end WO shall labor during the pending election. "Gentlemen who have been travel? ing through the upper Counties repre? sent them as being strongly in favor of Chamberlain and reform." [Union-Herald, Nothing ojt the kipd. Republican politioiabB, on the contrary, who are not in the Colombia rings, have a thorough distrust of him. The bulk of the negroes never heard of him. He has not a particle of popular atrength. . Thoy have only to learn correctly about him to pitch him over? board after Mows'.'. They call for a better man them -either of these. They j ?re disposed to repudiate all ring men. Encourage Thon. s'teai sevej there - tha colored population in those Coun? ties. Tfrey" "perceive that tboy have" been tools and viotimb in tbe corrup? tion which., liko a great boil, over? spreads the en tiro State. Now that ths rnsn who have misruled them, ruined tho State and disgraced' its name, come forward to deceive them again with false prof eat ion a, they natu? rally shrink from their touch. They do not see any break in the ring, they are unable to discern any dear hands in those who npprouch them. They are the same oid feiiows, with tho same old plundering schemes. They are more disposed than at any time for 1 several years to hear from gentlemen whom they oan trust. They are freely asking their advice, aud eviuou a grow? ing interest in learning tho truth of things. In Fairfield, Newberry, Uuion, Spurtanburg aud Greenville, mauy of tbe oolored people are prepared to listen to men whom tbey have alwuys respected, always knew were their friends, bat whom tbe party lush and tbe power of ridicule and of persoual denunciation kept them from support? ing iu political matters uud in elec? tions. This dispositiou to correct n wrong, to bo sot in tho right path, to get out of the den of thieves, und to be ranged in political uction with honest men, ought to be warmly met and Btrongly enconrsged. Our frieuds may dopend upon it that the colored people will bear them with putionco, and will weigh their suggestions. Their minds are more open and less prepossessed than they have been. They begin to see to what shameful uses they have been pot. Tbey feel the degraded condition of things which keeps them down as well us others. Talk with them, therefore. Sow the seeds of good doctrine in their 1 awakened minds. They have heard that President Grant condemns the Iladical ruin which has been wrought here. Gnard them against the decep? tion that this condom nation is only meant for Moses. Show them that it is meant to reach tbe whole corrupt ring which put up Moses at one time, and now, to avoid the consequences of their and his crimes, desires to palm off some other as something better. Tell them that wheu General Grant eaid he preferred that the State should fall into the bands of Democrats rather than to continue uuder tbe control of plunderers, he did not meuu one plun? derer, but tho whole set. Wheu ho said tbey must unload, ho meaut that they must unload tho whole party of organized brigands. They are dis? posed to hear wholesome truth, and our people should not bo remiss or backward iu imparting it. They are quite ready in many quartern to throw these follows overboard. They need some good men, firm aud intelligent men, to t.tke them by tho hands aud lead them out into light aud out of trouble. What's the Malter wltlt Abbeville. We read in tho Press and Ummer, a week or two ago, uome very strong commendation of Mr. Hugo's speech, the chief point of whioh was clap-trap, about the Civil Rights Bill. The Me? dium ecboes the assertions of tho Ha dioal papers of Columbia, that tbe "entire Democratic press" is giving its assistance to Moses. These arcstrauge utterances to come from this quurter. By-the-way, a gentleman of that County, who called our attention to them, informs ub that there is but a siegle Tax Union in Abbeville. Are the Abbeville jonrnalB responsible for this lethargy? Abbeville is a large, rich and important County. It ought to pnt itself in line with the other Counties in tbe State. Its newspapers surely oan find something better to do than to give their readers dissertations on H?ge and misrepreseDtationsof tbe Democratic press. We hope our friends in that County will not any longer delay in forming their Tax Unions and taking a position worthy their nane, resources, character and spirit. The aecond battle of King's Moun? tain came off on Sunday last. A party of oolored folks from Charlotte went to Limestone Springs, on an excursion, and when returning, tbey got iuto a difficulty with another party from Growder's Mountaiu, (adjacent to King's Mountain, the Limestone I station,) and for a time a fierce battle was waged, with kuives, sticks aud pistols. Tbe conduotor put u Htop to tbe fight by moving off his train, whioh was stoned by. the Crowder party. Several were seriously hurt. A man, named Hedry Ynre, ban been arrested in Portsmouth, Vu, for running away with his mother in law. Just think of it; Shall Stoic** Brer be It-leased from' R * Prison 1 I j Edward F. Stokes still languishes iu tjbo i Greenville- jail. The ladies of Greenville, to the number of 200, headed by the humane, disinterested and greatly-beloved matron, Mrs. B. F. Cleveland, lately sent a petition to Judge Cooke, asking that he be ro leiiBcd. It is an eurnest appeal. It states that Stokes has been imprisoned ten months, snfferiog all the time iu mind and body; that he is growing weaker and weaker, and must soon be laid low in death. Judge Cooke re? plies in kind terms. He assures the ludy petitioners that bo feels and mourns, in common with them, the sad und unfortunate confinement of Stokes, bnt adds that he cannot open his prison door without doing injustice to the rights of parties, whioh ho is bound to proteot, nor proper regard to the responsibilities of a Circuit Judge. Without meaning to reflect upon Judge Cooke, we fear that in thin mat? ter it is the letter which kills. We want the spirit whioh will make ulive. There never has seemed to us any impediment to the release of Stokes which could not be overcome. It seemed, rather, when wo exumiued the oaso aomo time ago, that the grounds for appeal to the Supreme Court were good and solid. The argument was made on the 12th of Muy, but no decision bus been uuuounced. Now, are we mistaken or not in this? If the oase is before the Supreme Court, it is one which ought to have been deter* mined within a week, aud there can be no excuse for any delay. If it is not, 1 then the responsibility for this shame? ful- incarceration rests either upon Stokes himself or upou Judge Cooke. When we consider all the surrouudings of this case?the pleadings and grounds taken before the Supreme Court, the condition of the prisoner and those peculiarities of mental Constitution which are as fixed facts ns they ure touohing appeals to enlightened hu? manity and strong arguments for the relaxation of rigid rules of law?we confess that we ure not iuoliued to place it upon Mr. Stokes himself. It is sad to think that he may bo the vic? tim of the law's delay, the tortuosity of courts and of his own delusions at the samo time. For this long-con? tinued imprisonment, Judge Cooke must take his duo share, aud the i greater part, of the blame. It looks| ugly, even now. Before long, it may become an infamy and a shame. Is it possible that Judgu Cooke can bo a mau and u> Judge, und not be able to solve such a dilemma as this? Judge Cooke pleads legal and technical re? sponsibility for not acting; but he is I under a moral responsibility to act, in suuh a peculiar und distressing case, which is higher and moro biudiug. Georgetown.?Attuirs in this Ro pubheau-distructed town remain in statu quo, us fur as heard from. The Intendant called upon Geu.Yogdos, commandant at Charleston, for a tile of soldiers, to preserve the peace; but, after communicating with Gen. Mc? Dowell, he was compelled to de.cliue, on the ground that it was a matter for the Statu authorities. Upou the re? quisition of the Collector of tho Port, a revenue cutter, with u complement of murines, went dowu, Sunday night, to protect Uuited States property. Senator-Colonel Jones, the leader of one of the factions, who has arrived iu Charleston, reports that the ja?l is still guarded by some of his militia. Rep? resentative Uowley is still confined. Jones says that Uuitod States troops must be sent there to restore order. He brings with him papers necessary tosnstain his demand for such help. Thompson, the colored Philadelphian, who was wounded on Wednesday, came with him. Tue r hol,' hi,ks in August a.?There was some excitement in Hamborg, on Sunday, over tho lynching of the colored man, Murrel, in Augusta, and a citizen of that plaoe who crossed the river got into a shooting sorupe with some of the exoited colored populace, when he beat a hasty retreat to the Georgia side of the river. It was rumored that a raid was to be made upon Augusta, and a detaehmont of military was called out and sentries placed in differeut portions of the city. Later iu the day, a preamble and resolutions wore adopted by some of the peaceably-disposed residents of Bumburg, and the exoitemeut quieted down. Gabriel Murrol, who partici? pated in the difficulty, (bnt declares himself inuoceut of the murder of Captain Butler,) has been committed to jail to await his trial. Captain 13.it h>r was interred on Monday, in the cemetery in Augusta?an immense concourse of persons being iu attend unco. Everything is quiet in tho city now. I A despatch from LaCrosso states that Minnesota is over-run with har? vesters uuabk to got employment. Oae steamer brought 400, und every vessel adds to -the number.

I ' Mil 'Editor: The white-sYiuoed Ra dicale ol Booth Carolina are working bard, through their newspapers, by public speeches and otherwise), to con? vince the black man that "it will never do to trust tbe Democracy- of - Boatb Carolina with the Btate Government." Tbey tell tbe black man that all this boo and cry by tbe Democrats about tbe corruption of Radioal offioials, tho enormity of the State debt and high taxes, is a sbam to lead the poor blank man aside from his duty to the Radi? cal party, so tbey can get possousiou cf the Stuto Government, aud that us soon as this is accomplished, liberty for tbe blnck man will bo gone for j over. ThiH id the cherished theme by I which they hope and behove they cau keep tho hobest whito aud black ci?i zuus ut tho Stute dividod, so that tbey cau ruu in between tho two and tuko all tbo offices. Tbey very well know that us soon us the honest part of the two races become frieudly and united, that their good timo will be at an end, aud that they will be driven out of (he public crib and consigned (o (he depths of eternal infamy. There iB scarcely uu issue of u Radical newspaper iu South Carolin?, but that the dnugers of Do mocratio rulo are brought before the black mun iu the most hideous forms kuowu to tbe inflamed and imagina? tive braius of white Radical newspaper writers. But tho woigbt of the foul hands of the legislative aud executive departments of the Government upou tho very vitals of tho people, both white uud black, has become so op? pressive und apparent, that the mot>t ignorant while or colored country man has tsoeu and felt it. Pliny are, there? fore, reluctantly compelled to uckuow ledgo many of their villainous crimes, or else bo brauded with kuowiugly and persistently sticking to that which they und ull tho people know to be u lie. It is uot tbo grout love thut these while Radical:* have for the black mun that mukes them so busy and solicitous about his rights aud interests us citi zeus. Nay! it is office for themselves that they are after; uud, that obtained, they care nothing for the runt interests of either the white or black man, but go on stealing everything they can luy hands on. The true friend of tbe honest black man is tbo honest white man, and it is to bim that tho black man almost in? variably will go for favors. Why, then, is he uot to bo trusted by tbe black man? He being the black man's fricud in need, is certuiuly his friend indeed. It is now time thut the honest white aud colored puoplo of tbe State come to an understanding, aud hurl from position all the white und black rogues who have, tuno reconstruction been living in elegance and luxury, by stealing tho hard earnings of both black and white. Gen. Kershaw struck tbe key-note of tbe State's deliver? ance, when he said: "Let us organize and consolidate all honest men, (we say white aud black,) who cau rise ubovo unworthy prcjudiocs aud party slavory, lo rescue the State from nuur ohy, ruin, uud, iu the end, a bloody despair." Let there be a mutual fool? ing of confidence and friendship be? tween tbo races interested alike in good government, aud let them Quite upon good, honest men for office, from both races alike. Wo fuel sure that all tho whito people of tbe State fully en? dorse this noble seutimeut of Geu. Kershaw, and that the true interests, prospority aud happiness of the co? lored people, as well us tho whitee, consists in mutual friendship uud ouu iidnuco in each other. Colored peoplo of Sooth Carolina, are you willing to meet your best friends?the honest white men of tbo State?on bulf-way gruuud, to accom? plish those great reforms in tho go? vernment of South Carolina, which, by its roguery aud profligacy, bus re? duced us to beggary, aud, in many in? stances, compels you to steal or perish? Do uot bued tbo hellish crios of Radi? cal newspapers, thut you must not support tiny ouo but whito Radicals for uffi'o. All tho rogues are crying aloud for reform, but tbey say reform only inside our Radical linos. Boliovo them uot. Tbey do not mean reform. Reform with them moans to replace them iu office, whore tbey cau conti? nue to steal your substance, live in fine bouses, drive floe horses und car? riages; while you are olad in rag*, live in poor log bats, with scarcely bucou and corn bread to eat, laboriug bard tbo year rouud, soaked witb dirt and sweat, only to maintain them in tbeir bigh stylo of living. The oolored peo? plo beiug largely in tbe mujority, are oxpooteu to muko tbo first move to? ward this unity, and tbey cau very easily do so through their preach era, who mot reoontly in the interest of a good, moral and economical govern? ment. Tho whito Radicals, and, in fact, all tbe old set who have tastod tbe government pap, were opposed to this meeting of the moral oolored men of tho State, for in it they thought tbey saw "tbe band-writing on the wall." A Ridioal newspaper (the Union) snoeriugly remurked that half these moral men were candidates for office, hoping thereby to create au im? pression ugaiust tbem. But go on, good colored men; tho best wishes of ull the good whito men of the Stute are with you, and tbey hope something good from you. The striking down of Lee by Oardozo has justly incensed many uf the colored und white people of tho Stuto. Whatever else you do, never trust again any of tho old suck? ers who bavo ruled and ruined us all. They will make streuaous efforts to regain positiun, but never trust tbem. There arc plenty of good, honest whito and colored men entirely outside tbo old set, who aro willing and competent tu fill all these places. Respectfully, J.

Reported Troubles at Ridqr Sfbiko.?Several reports were in cir? culation, yesterday, relative to trou? bles between tho white and colored people at Ridge Spring, on the line of tho Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad. It seems that several co? lored companies were drilling and drum-boating until a very late honr Monday night, while the stragglers made threats aa to what they would do if tho whites interfered, or wanted "anything out of them." The whites becoming incensed and at tho samo timo fearful that trouble might ensue, sout runners around the neighborhood aud collected a number of armed citi? zens, who, yostorduy morning, were prepared to quell any disturbance. Thoro was, however, fortunately no col? lision, and whon the evening train for Columbia passed, none of tho colored troops were visible?having qnietly dispersed, leaving the whites in peace? ful possession of tho field.

Many who are sufiering from the effects of the warm weather and are debilitated, are advised by physicians to take moderate amounts of whiskey two or three times during the day. In a little while, those who adopt this advice frequently increase the number of "drinks," aud iu time become con? firmed inebriates. A beverage which will not create thirst for intoxioating liquors, and which is intended espe? cially for tbe benefit of debilitated persons, whether at borne or abroad, is Dr. Sobenck's Sea Weed Tonic. Con? taining tbe juices cf many medicinal herbs, this preparation does not create an appetite for the intoxicating cap. The nourishing and tbe life-supporting properties of many valuable natural productions contained in it and well known to medical men have a most strengthening influence. A single bottlu of tbo Tonic will demonstrate its valuable qualities. For debility aris? ing from sickness, over-exertion or from any cause, whatever, a wine glassful of Sea Weed Tonic, taken after meals, will strengthen the sto? mach aud create an appetite for whole? some food. To all who are about leaving their homes, wo desire to say that tbo excellent effeots of Dr. Subcnck's seasonable remedies, Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills, are particularly evident when taken by those who are injuriously affected by a change of water and diet. No person should leave home without taking a supply of these safeguards along. For sale by all druggists. A9fl3 Inviting Sickness.?A belief that violent purgation is tbe surest remedy for every human ailment prevails to a lamentable extent among some olassea of tbe community. It might be thought tbat tbe languid, the debili? tated, the depressed, would know, in? stinctively, tbat their systems need toning, invigorating and regulating with some wholesome stimulant and alterative, and that a fierce oat bar lie is as unsnited to their eondition qh a strong dose of aotive poison would be to a man already laboring under tbe effect) of some deleterious drag. In all oases of physical weakness, Hostet ter's Stomach Bitters should be promptly resorted to by the invalid. The operation of tbis inestimable vege? table restorative is three-fold. It vi? talizes and reinforces the depressed nervous system, while at the same time it regalates the digestive and se? cretive organs and keeps the bowels free. Debility is ofteu the forerunner of an attack of some acnte disease, aud to prostrate the strength still more by scouring the bowels with a drastic evaouant, at snob a juncture, is to in? vite the immediate onset of the im? pending disorder, and render the sys? tem iooapable of contending with it. On the other band, a course of tbe Bitters, commenced as soon as tbe symptoms of general debility manifest themselves, will iu nine oases out of ton prevent the threatened attaok aud thoroughly rostore the bodily strength of tbe patient. The cases of dyspep? sia, liver complaint, constipation, dysentery, diarrbooj, rheumatism and periodical fevers would bo compara? tively few if this unequalled iuvigora tiug and regulating medicine were always resorted to as a core for the bodily weakness and loss of vital en orgy which oeualiy precede these com? plaints, and are, indeed, us a general rule, the precursors of nearly all aoute and dangerous disorders.
