The following letter from the Post
master General to Hon. A. S. Mer
rimoh, U. S.Senator of North Caro
lina, will explain itself. By it the
public is told that Kails are to have .
first-choice for ofliec all tho way j
through, "sweet promises bettor no
parsnips,'' and r.s wc said in our last
issue, it is not certain yet that Hayes
will do one half he has promised to
do for the South, and there is plenty
of time to shout his name from every
bouse toj). If Hayes fulfills one just
hope of the people of the South we
shall be agreeably disappointed.
Here is Key's letter, inspired no
doubt by bis master :

present a letter from his Excellency
Wade Hampton, the Governor of the
Shite of South Carolina, requesting
the i tit hied into withdrawal of tho

the Sin to house at Columbia. In ac

Kxeellimoy, that any statement which
ibc undersigned commit toe desire to
11resent touching the subject matter
fchouhl properly be in writing, wc
I respectfully submit the following foi
flic consideration of you r Excellency:
C;?V. HAMPTON UKC?GSIftHD l?Y TU IC
' ?lJl'itKMK COUHT.
First. Wo do not represent Cover
nur Hampton us :i party to si ?nitro
versy, for wc li?hl, iik in duty hound,
timt the judgment of the court of last
result of a State in :t cause involving
no Federal question, but doterminublo
o>:o usively under the constitution und
law- <d' tlic State, legally quiets all
contention.- as to tha issues thereiii
decided. Tbe Supreme Court of the
United States Las established this
proposition as .-(tiled law by an ua
broken current of decisions.
Thiit judgment wo had the honor to
lay before your Fxeellcney. The
title of Wade Hampton, esq.," to tlie
ollicc of Guvcrnor ii derived front Iiis
elec tion by the people, ami the high
est judicial ? tribunal of the Stale has
.solemnly ufiirnicd that till.1, lie,
therefore, as the Governor of tlie
?tnie of South Carolina, addresses
y our ! Excellency s invoking the action
of the President, not for the solution
of a jiidie al question, but lor the
vn< reise of his power as eotnni-mder

j.ltlu: 1 V,-.. II..i If's UEV?C?TIOX) OF IIIS
Second. Wo are informed thai it is j
alleged in support of the usurped
authority of/); !i. Chamberlain, esq.,
and for the purpose of discrediting
the decision ? i' the Supremo Oosiri,
which has adjudged Wade Hampton,
esq.', the Governor of South C:;rolin:i,
i that one of the two associate justices
! who composed the court did, alter con
curi ir.g: in the judgment ami signing
I he lino I order in the cause, before the
filing oi the same, revoke his .signa
ture thereto, and did I hereby render
t!ie .-aid older void. Tho:presiding
justice of the Supremo Court, wluwe
opinion accompanies the leller of
Governor 1 amptoti, has noticed L?'iro
in that pretended reyocationasnpjieiir
iiig in the form ol a memorandum,
j ann.'xtd ton paper entitled an''Opin
ion by Associate Justice Wright," hut
with no signature tittach'odjtliL'ret?,
which alleged opinion and thcnu;icx>
ed memorandum are not in the hand
writing of the said associate just.ce.
His Honor A. d. Wiliurd.thc pre
luding justice in tlie cause, tiled the
final order therein us the judgment, n f
the Supreme Coini, hot withstanding
I such pretended revocation.
The .-o-cal led revocation is clearly
without legal force to annul tins j udg
ment of the Supreme Conti. The
judgment of a court of ia.sl reihrteah
only he reviewed by i self. Tlie t'ivu
justices who rehdoied the deci.d in in
I lliv cause constitute (lie judicial Uni t
j termed the court. Neither separately
lean constitute himself a court of ro
viev, :<..- Ui a final order made by the
icoiiri in I'liiir. The judgment i- ( heir
I ceiien11*1.'til conclusion; The order i
I the statement ofsueh conclusion. Not
llu; conclusion of one justice, or of the
j two justices separately, bat ofllui two
[ associated, and constituting lliu ju li
I rial entity termed the court.
We deem it proper to nod; (ho un
deniable fact- that the Supreme
Court, which, owing to the illness of
the Chief Justice, consisted only of
the two n.-suciulc justices, adjourned
on Tuesday, February 27, io in eel on
the following Friday, und during (lie
said recess Justice Wright signed the
memorandum which purports to he a
revocation Of his sigiui' tire affixed to
the final order of the court on the day
of its adjournment. II.; signed the
order February '27 and the adeged
revocation March 1, and since the
lir.-t named date he has not resumed
I his seal upon tho .Supremo bonub. lie
I left Columbia March .">, and is now
absent from the State. While bis
pretended revocation cannot avu'd to
annul the judgment of the Supreme
Court, it yet serves to reveal the con
spiracy which, having but recently
'? defied the authority of al! the justices
1 of the. highest court of the State, now
renders it impossible for the court to
proceed with the business of the term',
by laying it; unulctiii hand oil (he
ermine of one of its associate justice-!

Third. The present occupation of
the Stale house by United States
troops, tind the attendant surveillance
exercised by (hem over all who enter
the hail ling, visit, upon the pimple of
South Carolina a most harsh incident
of military rule, wdiicli, while it lends
to discredit all civil authority, furn
ishes none of the compensations that
attach to military government, in the
protection of life and properl v and
the du.? maintenance of public order.
The usurped authority thus sus
tained by tin exhibition of arm-1
force is essentially parasitical, having
iii)]'sources;?fsubsistence witliiii iiself,
and utterly repudiated by t!ios.> who
j furnish the p?tdic^uppliei,jcud)raciiig
iiliiiost the entire taxpnying citizen
.-bip of the State and the major por
tion of its intelligence ami moral
woitli. The government; on the con
trnry, represent id by G jvernor Wade
Hampton is abundantly sustained by
the voluntary c*ihtributio!isofn pati
otic people, whic.i are duly applie. 1 to
the maintenance of the courts, the
Asylum fei' the insane, the Colored
Orphan Asylum, the penitentiary^ (ho
Deal' and Dum Asyluni, and all the
beneficiaries of the State. It is the
only civil authority that governs or
can govern in South Caioliua. The
pretended authority which opposes it
cvishs only as an obstruction, and is
incapable of being vitalized iulo an
cfliciei.it agent for the conduct of a
civil administration. Il has not any

principles, in order to meet groat

j there is n > -u -b consideration of ex

I the full exercise by Governor llatnp

j ted Governor ol South Ca roll na. His
; public declarations and act attest Iiis
j puijiose, that under his ml tu in ist ration
Ihe govi ruiucii ofSouth Carolina shall
? ' recognize atid maintain inviolate Ilia
rights of all," and that it will "be ti
government which submits loyally
and heartily to the Const it u I ion anil
law:-; the laws of the nation and the
laws of the State, accepting and obey
iiig faithfully the whole Constitution
us it is." Permit its to add, that ??'the
?jUes?on to consider for the immediate
welfare*' of the State of South O.i'ro
! linn, ,-is the question of gbvvrnthent
or no government; of social order, and
till the peaceful industries that bo
long loii.ora return to barbarism."
Il is (he 'inalterable resolve of Cover
nor Hampton, and id'the majority of
the people ofSdiith Carolina, wli ? by
their free sr.rages elected him a- their
Chief Magistrate, never to submit to
the domination of the usurped author
ity which now holds with an armed
force the Capitol of the State. They
w: II resist it every where and contino
ally, to th ir utmost power, yet always
within the limits that prescribe their
paramount duty as American citizens
to bear true faith and allegiance to
the Constitution and the Union, and
practice due obedience to t .c laws.
Such resistance, cannot be deemed
inconsistent with a law adidiiig citizen
ship, for the Hampton government
. has received the recognition; directly
or indirectly; of all tho circuit judges
save, one, and even ho has decided
that Governor Hampton receive tho
highest number of votes, although
holding that the election was not leg

Court, and the fact that the Genera'
