THK COLUMBIA MUDDLE. I Wednesday last when the rump Legis- i latum, as the Republican house is culled, ( met thev found that owing to the absence : j of Tom Hamilton they bad no quorum j , and there was trouble in the camp and j mining uouiu we aone nil ~6 p, m., when Hamilton was got in by strategy and the bouse at once took measures to prevent a recurrence of such a dilemma by admitting to seats the fire defeated Republicans from Barnwell county. Thursday morning the Democrats cap- , tured the representative hall having . gained an eatranca about 10. a. m., and , the astonishment of the few Republicans , present was great as they saw Gen Wal- ] lace take his seat in the speaker's chair j and call the constitutional house to order. 4 When Mackey entered ho ordered Gen. j Wallace out and Gen. Wallace ordered t Mackey out but neither ol?cjed and both ] speakers gave other ordeft but all was t equally void. The Democrats took poss f ssion of one side of the house and the t Republicans the other and so they remained all day and all night Mackey sent fr.r tioops to put the Democrats out ' but Gen. Ruger declined to interfere. ' Friday morning found both bouses in 1 session every member holding fast to his 1 seat. At twelve o'clock it wn6 promised ' and expected that the troops would nr- ' rive to remove the Edgefield and Lautens ) members but the hour passed without a visit from the soldiers. The most nota- ' ble event of the day was a speech from ' the irrepressible Tom Hamilton. He 1 warned the Republicans that the course ! they were pursuing would end in a row and he prophsied what afterwards proved * truo that it was in contemplation then to ' admit more defeated candidates to seats. I* is said that i mn really shed tears over ' the ruin that his parly was bringing ' down on the state. George Reed gi c<md ( ed Tom in his denunciation of the admission of the Barnwell crowd. Gen. Ruger finding that the public sentiment J was so strongly against him in his inter- ( ference in admitting to the house only those that Dennis wanted in, telegraphed his excuse to Washington and endeavored to throw the whole blame on hin anlvnr? diuate officer*, and docs not intimate tbat be bad his authority from the Pre si ' dent. < Saturday passed without anybody be- | ing ejected or any collision between the j two parties. Tom Hamilton delivered a speech and afterwards went up to speaker Wallace and was sworn in, and N. B 1 Myers did the same shortly after. The I < Democrats bad sixty-seven legal'y elected < members who answered the roll and the < Republicans ocly 68. A tehgram was read from Allendale stating that Silas 1 Cave who was alleged to have been sworn 1 in as one of the Barnwell contestants 1 had never left home and that the man in 1 the house representing himself as Cave was a fraud. The announcement made a 1 sensation on the Republican side of the < house aa the trick, which must have baen known to many, was not expected to have been found out so soon. Nothing was < done, however, in regard to the case and no explanation offered. Late in the even- . lag ine nepuoucan nousi rammed to eats the fire defeated candidates from 1 Abbeville and it was intended to admit ' all defeated Republicans all over the ' tJtate if necessary to keep up a quorum. 1 Holiday was passed by both houses in their places each side bsing convinced tbit a crisis was at hand, many on the Repablican side anticipating a di?p^sion of their opponents by the soldiers early ] on Monday morning. Monday morning when the Houss was J called to order Gen. W all ace stated that ' he had besn officially informed that oae I hundred armed men were about to enter J the hall to eject certain members on the ' floor. That the fores was acting under ' the direct order of Governor Chamberlain ' it tha* if tk. f :-i-J . 1 iu?* *1 ?UU IVIVC WAV H'JIBICU UJUl the United States soldiers then io the 1 building woald aid theartned force iu ejecting the men who were to be turned 1 ml With a view, therefore, of prevent- j ing bloodshed and of preserving the 1 peace, Oen. W allaee advised the members ' to withdraw, tinder a solemn protest. He said it was not essential that the House J of Representatives should meet in the | Capitol but they weie lawfally required i to tr.eet in Columbia The Houso then ! adjourned to Carolina Hall and were accompanied by Myers, Hamilton, Reedish and Weatbury. Macksy's hours then went | iuto secret session. In the Senate the time t passed that waa appointed to count tba ' vote for Governor and the body adjourned 1 r ithout taking any action in the matter, j 'J be Conetit?tonal Honse of Repreeen - < tsuiej assembled at Id o'clock yeaterday 1 iMoraing. At It a. in. Daniel Bird and * John Gibson, two coloredjispreaentativee ] fr? m PaMeld county, who have hither- i f.H f < .iofi I vvi.h tlie bayonet house, ?ook their stats in the constitutional house and were sworn in by Speaker Wallace i amid great applause. 8. 8. Bridges of Ncwbirryalso took the oath before speaker Wallace. Ah ssrs. Gibaon, Bine, Hamilton, Gray and Wallace were appointed as a committee to meet and co-operate with the Congressional Committee, aoiv on its , way to Columbia. The house then adjourned. '1 he Senate met yesterday and was infi'imed by the Rump house that they would count the vote for Governor at 1 p. m. An effort was made to scat Senator Maxwell from Abbeville and on r vote Iteinir taken it wis a tic but Mr. Gleaves defeated it l>y his vote and Mr. Maxwell ' has co wait. The Republican Senators then proceeded to the chamber of the ; House to count the vote, the Democrats 1 | refusing to attend. The returns wenthen read, when the names of Edgefield ' srd Laurens were called objection was made and the votes of those two counties were thrown out. A few tallow dips tuuished light for the noble wnrk in which these worthies were engaged, the gag company having shut off the gas when the Democrats left the hall. The remit as announcedwaa Chamberlain8G 210, Hampton 83,071; Chamberlain's majorty 3,145. Qleaves majority was given as < 1,099. There were but 54 legal members * n the house at the time the vote was ? :ountcd. The defeated candidates from I Sdgeficld were seated in the morning and : here are several counties yet to hear i rom where the faithful were left out in i he cold, but are not forgotten. < The News from Columbia givca promise f *( a speedy settlement of the election of ( Governor, and ns the constitutional house io-v has sixty-four members with ccrtifi- ] :ates from the secretary of state beside the egally elected members from Edgefield j uid Laurens, their recognition by tho Senate cannot be much longer delayed. ( rhe Rump House has seven less ot its ( original members and is casting around tnd taking into its embrace all the rejected candidates it can find and promises loon to be short of them and then who will be taken up the Lord knows. It is 'xpected that the lawful body <*ill be declared so tomorrow and Governor Hampton inaugurated this week. Until that time business is at a stand still, and i dread of impending war par.ilizcs all nduMrv. Gen. llamnton t-mil that there wasonlv one thing thut could j rob the people of victory, and that was j m act of vioh-rc". lie went s> tar a* to Bay thai if the verdict of the people ut ! the ballot-box w is not respcted, they would have a military Governor. Many Republicans here sneer at the larccof counting in Chamberlain yesterday and arc willing to bet on the success af Hampton. Thcj expect the whole bogus house will go ov.-r before ni my i lays and the Senate will have no option but to recognize the lawful house ol representatives. The sudden change* in tho weather during the past week have been equalled i anly by the feelings of the Republicans in ' our town. Their countenances showed delight at the interfere.icj of troops ou Tuesday which gave place to blank astonishment when ihey beard of the cap tare of tli* house by Gen. Wallace. Rumors of tha in tea tied interference of troops to eject the Laurens aud Edgitieid members restored in a measure their ipirits, but they were again on the ragged edge when n?ws of the dtseniou of Myers and Hamilton was received, and | they acknowledged that Hampton was ; ^ IMIUg ^ituuu. The court of Common Pleas was adjourned at Marion Wednesday on a petition from the members of the bar, who took the ground that as the orders of the highest tribunal in the State had been let at defiance the judgment of a Circuit Deurt would be of little avail. MEETING OF CONGRESS. Congress met on Monday, and in the House Mr. Randall was elected speaker. The credentials ofC. W. Buttz were objected to and referred to the committee or elections. Committees were appointed to proceed to South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana and investigate the election rauus ana lett for their destinations yes- j terday. The committee to this state is tnmposed of Abbot, Baylor, Stringer, Eden, Jones of Kentucky, Phillips, Banks, Lawrence and Lapbam. The resolnti&n provides that the committees shall proceed to the respective States to investigate the recent elections m those States, and the action of the returning boards in reference tin rctn, and to report all the tacts essential to an honest return of the votes for Electors for ; President and Vice-President, and to a 1 fair understanding thereof by the people, | uid whether the Electoral totes of those ; States should be counted. Whatever there may he of shame or I reproach connected with the extraordinary proceedings at Columbia does not lie it the door of Wade Hampton and bis lupporters. We doubt if the citizens of New York or Massachusetts would have gout* through a similar tnal with equal redit. If,In a eontesUd election, when lioth parties claimed the Legislature of thia Slate, federal troops bad been stat ionid at Albany; if the soldiers had taken possession of the State House at midnight preceeding the day whea the j mmmmmmmmmm? mgMBBgawg? Legislature is required to meet; if tiny hod barred the entrance . of members claimed to have been elected by one pol iticnl party; if they had thus given the organization of the Legislature to a party which had to strain the law to giro it the false appearance of a quorum, we doubt if the citizens of New York would hare bi en as patient, as forbearing, as self-controlled as the citizens cf South Carolina showed themselves to be when federal bayonets hedged the passage to the legislative hall against persons who had a colorable claim to take pnrt in the proceedings. The bearing of South Carolina citia< ns in the great trial to jvhicb they were subjected was admirable. There has never been a more critical and dangerous conjuncture in the history of American politics. The whole country had its attention fiaed on the proceedings at Columbia, and there watt a great strain of anxiety and apprehension hat scenes of violence *nd bloodshed should set the whole :nuntry on firo and inaugurate a new :ivil war. Public passions arc in so in3am in able a st ite that a mere spark night have kindled a conflagration of * lush the consequences would hava been ippalling. The credit of preserving the peace *t Columbia ia due to General Wade Hamp ;on the Democratic candidate for Gov;rnor. Ifc had only to lift a finger, lie lad only to signify the slightest assent, md the state house would have been rescued from the federal soldiers and his supporters could have controlled the organization of the Legislature. 1 be federal troops were only three hundied, ind there were at least eight thousand democrats present in Columbia accustomjd to the use of arm?, with amis probably upon their persons, who could have crumpled and annihilated the small federal force had they given way to their indignation and their sense of wrong. It is fortunate that they have a leader so strong, so sagacious, so sclf-poised and so thoroughly trusted as Wudc Hampton, lie pirfeatly understands the situation, and, if we may judge by his conduct be will make no "mistakes. There was danger at one criti.al moment that the excit? d citiz< as might press their way into the State House in spite of the fidrial soldiers, but General Hampton came torward ami niaJ* a speech tw the incensed multitude waicb calmed their passions and caused them peace*bit to disperse. His snpporlers have too much coufid?:tc > in Idiu to do unything against Ida wLln b and lie understands the situation too well to permit any r sort to violence. lie is too c'? ar sighted and cautioas to give the republicans ?uch an advantage. It is clear vnougli that the use niuda ol the federal troops was witboat any constitutional wurrant. At the viry utmost there is nothing which they coafd legally do beyond the pres rvation of the local peace. Cut ihty undertook to decide what members are eolith d to scats in a State Legislature. 1 hey assumed tu overrule the judgement of the bupreate Court of the titatc and to divide that clainian.a to scats should not wpp<ur to present their claims. There is no fedctal law which authorize* this kind ol intirfcrence. '1 lie constitution and laws of b< alb C'niclioa muhis the Legislature itself the sole judge of the election of it? own members and their tltl.-sto seats, bin the fedctal troops took the question <>ut of their hands and decide in advance that democratic members should not only be excluded Irom seats, but that they should not even he allowed to enter the legislative hall to piesent the evidence of their title. There could not be a more wauton, monstrous and indeiensible violatiou of law than this assumption by the federal army of a right to decide who had nnd who had not been elected to the Stat e Legislature. "I am .well aware," said President Qrant in his special Message of January 13, 1875, "that any military interference by the officers or troops of the United States with the organization of a State Legislature or any of its proceedings, or with any civil department of the Government, is repugnant to our ideas of Government. I can conceive of no case, n.ot involving rebellion or insurrection, where auch interference by authority of the general government ought to be permitted or justified." President Grant on that occasion, shielded himself from censure by professing that the interference with the Louisiana Legislature was with out his direct sanction or knowledge ->? ' ? - - ...u hi ticar iiimscii more fully he made thu sound statement of constitutional doctrine which we have just quoted from bis Louisiana Me-sage. But can he pretend ignorance now? Can he expert any body to believe that whnt was done at Columbia was done without bis sanction! Unless he can plead ignorance and disclaim responsibility now, as lie did in the Louisiana case, he stands condemned out of his own mouth. Butwbowii) accept such a plea with respect to the trnnsactiona at Colutnbiaf Judged by his owa declarations the military interference was utterly without warrant or justification. For him to repeat hi# former plea of ignorance ia this case would be ridiculous. If he ordered this plain violation of law, or if, with so many reasons for supposing it would take place, he did not prevent ft, he must shoulder the whole -responsibility. Judged by his own declarations to Cor-j I grcss it is a monstrous violation of law I and of tke spirit of our institutions. < With that message oa record we do not < see how he can escape on a plea of ignorance. If tho law is such as he described it he has clearly made himself liable to < impeachment by this new interference with a State Legislature. Unfortunately for him the impeaching power is In the hands of his enemies, and there is no reason why they should not exercise it. We presume the irst business of the House of B presentatives, when it assembles next week, will be to vote his impeachment and appoints committee to ^ draw up the articles. It will easily be m.ide to appear that President Grant has not only violated the constitution bat * sinned ngiinst knowledge. The passage we have quoted from his Message leave* bim without ex -use.? New Y<?rk Herald. Tom Hamilton made a speech in the House on Saturday last from which we make the following extracts: Now comes the trvirc hour T lcnnw ? => ( the severe criticism to which I shall be subjected, hut I am responsible nlone to my God and to my country. My Repub liran trieuds charge me with the downfall of the Republican party, and I repel the charge with the scorn it def-ervra. I am a Republican, and I here in this verv 3 seat nominated Daniel H. Chamberlain I for Governor of South Carolina. If Mr. Chamberlain die not get the requisite number of rotea to elect him it was not my fau't, but it was the fault of those very leaders who now assail me, who pro claimed to the colored people all over this 1 State that he tvaa a traitor, and a thief 1 and a Democrat. Iam not the alare of one man or a doaen men, and now that the returns ahow that Daniel H. Chamberlain is defeated, I will not be made the willing tool of ambitious office-seekers by giving my vote to corruptly coant bint in. I am responsible for what I do to day to the Republican party. I Toted the Republican ticket openly, but, Mr. speaker, would it be just tor me to come here to-day Hod throw out votes in order to elect my man because he did not receive the majority of the votes cast in the State? , I cannot listen to any audi purpose, and I care nothing for the scorn of the renegades and advcuiu; era. They can turn j their n sea up at me. I aak them no odds, i and 1 ask that tha leaders send down t Beaufort tlie strongest tutu they cin find to opp?se mo, and when the roll is called here, two ycais hence, I shall answer to mj name. I suited yesterday that I would stand by the muu who received the highirttTote.ireptat.it today, in my pinion the verdict of the people at the i?ailot-box has been in favor of Home Kmv, and against a stranger holding the reins of government in South Carolina any longer. It has got to come to that. 1 have discussed the organization* of these houses, and 1 hare declared in every speech that I have made, that the Legislature claiming to be organized here under E. \\ . >1. Mac key is unconstitutional. My Ouol have I uo right to think so and suy ao? Bvlorc y.,ur officer co.ncs to arrest me i let him be sure he is tight, or i ma; be compelled to visit upon hiui my revenge I lor all the insult* heaped upon me by j this b <otiil iluu. If ynj think you *re right stats your position. I hsve explained mine. I do uot ssk you to let me do as 1 please about the matter, because 1 intend to do that anyhow. If I think a man is a thief I will tell him so . and am responsible for the result. Differ with ins if you choose, but do not attribute those motives to my actions. I have always held th.it the gathering ol Republicans in this hall is so for nothing but a muss meeting, and that if the mat ttr couldn't be settled woqld decide for myself who wis the officer to bo recog; nizcd. Make your threats is much -> you please, but when you come to put your threat* into execution, make your vills. You call me a Democrat! That is no new name for me. I have been call a Democrat in Beaufort for four yean. I don't quarrel with anybody and I do not And the Democrats such terrible bloodthirsty people as you try .to represent them. I have never seen their boms. You say Hamilton and Myers have by their votes the power to save the Republican party. I do not consider that I was sent here to cast my vote to elect Governor Chamberlain when I believe he was defeated nt the I all-box on the 7th of November last. I do not conaidcr that the Legislature has a right to declare a defeated candidate elected. Ws dont coiue here to make governors, but as 1 understand it to represent the peoplp. It is useless to talk now about frauds. That has been done on both sides, and it was your business to prevint it. You had a majority of the munagers and the commissioners und fheriff* and canvassers and all the United States tr'xtps to secure fair play. Ifyoucometo talk about fraud you come to near home. If you don't look sharp the Democrats will show ??> # ! there were in the neighborhood oft | 8,000 bogus votes cast in Beaufort county.' Lei the public and not this body be the judge of my action, and whatever the verdict may be I shall bow in submission. If I had notapoken yesterday your so-called committee on privih gesand elections wwuld have seated some more bo?iis' meinlwrs/- I have here a certiflca> of election from the secretary of Mate, and considering that this is the legal and Constitutional Rouse of Representative*, I now pr >p no to take the oath before you, Mr. Wallace the Constitutionally sleeted Speaker.
