One fdore Point for Hampton.
T elegnu selnt onl Sitiday by
'resident Grant to;CGonral Augur,
while souewvhat discouraging to
Ni"11chc-, is a )Cint in fLvor of H ap
ton. The Presidontt assumes tlat
as i qu< rum of the TEgislat uro. h1oh
ing certificates of the returning
board announced the election of
Packard as Governor, it will be his
duty as President to recognize
Packird if thore should be a neces
sity of Fedoral recognition.
Now, Hampton in Sonth Carolina
holds the same vantago ground in
this, particuiar ns Packard, besides
having other superior claims. The
Wallace House mot with a quorum
including the eight members from
Edgefield and fU-mrens who hold
certificates fromio the Supreme Court.
Not content with this, however, the
Democrats gain-ed over a sufficiont
Mnuber of Republicans to constitute
a house of sixty-threo members ac
tually holding certificates from the
canvassing board and the Secroinry
of Stale, and not including the
Edgefieldl and Laurens membors
There was then no donbt about the
legality of this House. Its first act
after being so constituted was 60
confirm its previous organization.
The next step was to considor the
case of the Edgefield and Laurens
membors. Theso were seated by a
vote of sixty to three, an actual quo
rum of members a bout whoso elec
tion no doubt existed being present
andl vot'iig. This act gave the dis
plted dologations the full privilege
of mebiho.rshiip, and settled their
ciso finally. The House then o-i
braced seventy-ono members, and
during all subsequent deliberations
it cont-tined a quorum. The gubor
natori' voto was ceuntedi, and Wal,

The State and that ional Demnocracy.
nm' e en;m in Ian1 idhle gamoII ini at
teming t; pro12vc the existence of' r,
aismu '.Yween thle .Demiocracy of
thian Stito andc theo National
Demczioerney, or else in endLeavorin~g
to creato eone. Tlhe Democorat ic
party of South Cairolina stands
nhouldler to shou'ier with its kin..
(dredi organbi -t on in th~o other
Statasn. There is no weakening in
tis l'art of the line. It has been
argaed that the National party gave
no aid to South Canrolina during the
recent camnp'ign. Wheother this is
true or net~ in~t of no consequence.
The0 fight e::taled along the whole
line andl~ eatch comibaitant had his own
hands full at home, without attempt
ing to bear t he burden of any
other. South Carolina's own sons,
unaided, achieved a victory umn
paralleled in the annals of political
warfare, whether considoredl in the
light of theo overwhelning odds
ngainst which they were comipelled1
t~o cope, or in the light of the re
suits. The counsels of Hampton
and tihe patriotic response made by
every Democrat. strengthend 0( im
measurably the cause of Tilden in
the North, and the National Democ.
racy are prepared now to awvard
amlel piraise and more solid bene
The seating of Tilden in the
Presidential chair mewansa reform in
the National goverinent, a total
change in the tone of tile admninis
trartion, and what is of more interest
to us, lasting peace in the South.
Hampton will be the governor of
South Carolina in any event, as no
adninistration will care to go into
power over the ruin of a State. But
with Tilden'as President the State
aad the N..t'onal governments will be
in full accord.
The Repuiblican party since the
war has boon1 a'party of hate. Its
career has been characterized by not
one act of magnanimity to the peo
1)10 of the South. The concessions
it has made have been wrung -from
it through the growing power of the
D)omocracy and tihe ihmate sense of
justice of tihe Northern iudepondent
votsr. It han rkn nbidme to the mrast
tudo of thu Southern Demoerats for
its past. Ahd it fut ther gives no
promiso of a wiser sd mor0:e con
ciliatory spirit. If Uay s 1) soated
hoe will owo his ilevat ion to glaring
frauds and political brig iida'4go
''ho corrupt elemen is of hiisi party,
will have achieved tho vict.ory for
him, and Choy nmst he consitIed o
to the Courso of hi i init;1rationi.
That he is a good mntan it; geinrally
admitted. That he has proven hun
silf a weak mian,1, no ono can deny.
Tho Southern iIqiocrtsa cann:L,
coquet with him. Ho is a usurp:,.
Should h1l. be seated, which is im
probablo, tho South will occupy
rolitively the same position towards
him, to a Iodifie-l extent, that
Georgia and Alabama and other
Democratic States occupied towards
The people of the South know till

and deinand his inauguratioin.
They will not ight for it, howev(r,
becauce they are tired of war, anl
beliove that the Northern Dermocra
cy arostrong enough to take caro of
themselves. But they will most
assurodly givo no cefiort to the
Re-publicans. Goverrer IHunpton
has denied, as ove!ry o1C eXI)ecte I he
would, that ho Ens made or will
mpke any overtures to aityes. J e
knowts thit Tilden was elected ind
ho dosires his inauguration. In thi
ho is in full accord with the S4:itc
Democracy. And although efforts,
will doubtless still be umade to
alienate thec Coilponenit i"ari s of tl.
National Deiocracy, they vill not
succeed. Tho party iever was
stronger, and nevoer niore imited
than it is to-day. It, is the popular
party, the strong party, nim. it hsiv
right on it. side. And it hiaS no
truer maetbers thm te Di)ei.i.erands
of South Carolina. We Hinen

not regard this as changing~ former

either of the contestants. Thme
Supreme Court alluded to is a -new

term of the old court had expired,

Nicholls is 'rocognized as govei nor

Packard the Radical contestant
has issued a proclamation ordering
the Nicholls govern mont to disperse.
Nicholls refuses to pay any attention
wh)atovor to the order, and lie has
a large body of militia and police to
protect his. government. The peo
pie of Louisiana are determined to
resjist Packard to tihe last extremity.
