Gov. Chamberlain in :i;.)o;ttii?i^ a
lorce of oon."tables to tie.i the ii!'.\cai
Edgefield and Lauren.* d loiraiioio: did
just what he ought to have done at tinbeginning
of the scs ion, ami what wt
hare urged he should do: instead of cali-'
iug U(K>u the Uuited States troops. There
are sufficient wen in the State who are
ready at any ami a>! times, to answer the
call of the Governor to sustain the majesty
of the law.
A power within the State used t?> pro
serve the peace, under the cool headed
direction of Governor Chamberlain will
inspire confidence among jtlie republicans
in case of disturbance, and gain respect
lor our government among our opponents.
Ti?? republicans in democratic Georgia
-according to the Savannah i\n>w, at n
meeting decided upon the following action;
''That they would nominate, no
regular Radical candidate, but the members
of that party will unite on the par- !
ties who offer theiu the greatest indr.ee
meats. The sense of the gathering last I
night was that the only relief from the j
present condition ot affairs couil he;
brought about by the election of a olayor
and Board of Aldermen who could reduoe
the city expenses, lower the tuxes
and afford work for the unemployed.
Such a ticket would receive their support.
PfuuiDEVT Grant sustains ihe State
Board of Cauvassers iu throwing out the
vote ot Edgefield aud Laurens counties.
Mr. Ferry ruled iu the United States
Wpdnpsulav that there were no
UVtMW v* v v
jaiat rules iu force. Mr. Ratala!! ruled
io the House that they were all In force.
Speaker Macitey will issue writs ot
election fur Laureas aad Edgefield. The
leetions will probably take place about
February 1. The county offices will be
filled at the same election.
Tub iadignatiou meetiugs called to ask
Myers aad Hamilton to resign have not
assembled, everybody seems to be waiting
to see who will win before going too
deep into such things.
The republicans of South Carolina have
done themselves honor iu electing to the
Uuited States senate the Hon. D. T. Cor
bio. He has just the ability, courage and
energy of character necessary at this cri.
sis. The party iu the State and nation has
been strengthened by *the good \v;rk
done at the state house.
Senator unueuucu w loui/u wv mm v
Wade Hampton's card attached to the inaugural
of Governor Chamberlain in order
to correct the statement of the last
paragraph. Senator Nash reiterated his
statemeut that Hampton had told hiui
that he had saved Chamberlain's life two
or three times, and that but for his counsels
Chamberlain would not now be alive.
The action of the so-called house of
representatives; at Carolina hall prove*
that they have seen the utter folly and
recklessness, of the democratic tactics
from the beginning. They went through
the motiou of referring the' certificates oi'
the members from Edgefield and Laurens
to oommitteo on elections. The commit-.
tec reported in favor of the seating of the
delegatious, and the so-called hoa?e agp-'n
elected \V. If. Wallace speaker. This is
a plaiu admission that their organization
up to that time was void. It does not
show much respect for the opinions expressed
by members of the supreme
court. .k
The Boston Advertiser biings the issue
hoxae to the comprehension of the
democrats in this way :
Let us suppose that Governor Hay^s
has on the face of the returns made by
the electoral college a majority of the
votes. a?<i the democrats think there ws.s
fraud in the count of some of the .-.fa^es.
Let us suppose that the democratic congress
undertakes to prevent the declaration
of Hayeiaud Wheeler, and to inves
tigate whether or not (here has he n
a fraud. Suppose it- that emergency
iwunsel lor the KepaMl.un candidates
chould apply to the supremo court of the
United States for a writ prohibition
forbidding congress to act judicially in
the matter, on the ground that the lav/
investing them with power vrus in viola
lion of that sectiou oi the constitution
which iuipoaes on the vice president the
duty of opening the returns and deelar
ing the result. Suppose the court houid
issue & uiaudamu* commanding the vicepresident
u> aggregate the returns from
the states as made, and report them to
the court, aad when he had done thi*
/he court should issue another uiaudam us
commanding him to declare the e'eotion
of Hayes and Wheeler in accordance
with the lesult as found bj' aggrega!i?:2
the returns, and avoid, as the South Carolina
court h s done, inakiugany decision
of the legal question submitted to it. We
are iuciined to the opinion that, under
these circumstances, our rod hot dense
emtio friends would talk about the "revolul
^uar. act of the court as glibly as
i-w Hampton now does about the revolutionary
act of the canvassing h'?ard.

the government of South Carolina?will j
no longer rest on consent of the governed I
expressed by a free votes of a majority old
our people. If our opponents triumph ?
I care not under what guise of legal
forms?we shall witness ihe overthrow of
fiee go volume: it in our state.
My chief personal anxiety is that T
may have tlic firmness and wisdom cu
act in a manner worthy of the gicat interests
so largely committed to my keeping.
.?Iy chief public care shall in; i"
eon tribute my utmost efforts to defend
the rights, to guard tlie peace and to
promote the welfare of all the people of
our State.
The constant occupation of my time
with other dutie* which [ could not po-tone,
has prevented me from preparing
fch.t"u>ua! .statements and recommendations
respecting our public affairs. At the eariies:
practicable day, 1 will discharge this
duty. Our greatest interest, our most
I commanding duty now, is to stand firmly,
reach in his appointed place, against the
aggrc sions and allurements of our politi!
eal opponents. Our position up to the
I ?;!e-erit time, has been within the clear
limits of our constitution and laws.
Nothing hut the cowardice or weakness
or trench -ry of cur friends, can rob us of
victory, i state what iaets show, what

i have mourned over public abuses
which have heretofore arisen here. I i
have, according to the measure of my
ability, labored to ni dm the conduct of
eir public affairs honest and honorable.
But, L stand appalled at the crimes

1 and the great political party which ha
c in trolled the republic lor sixteen years
divided in its sympathies and judgement
I upon such questions. It is written in
; 'olood on ilie pages of'our recent national
history, that no government can rest
with safety upon the enforced slavery cr
degradation of a race. In the full Maze
of that great example of retributive
justice which swept away a half million
' of the best lives of: our country we see
American people divided by party lines
upon ihe question of the disfranchisement
an 1 degradation of the same nice
whose physical freedom was purchased
at such a cost. And, what is more astonishing
still, there are republicans who
permit the errors which have attended
the first effort of the rave in self-govern ;
