Liberal reduction made for largo Ad
SThc Negro and Polillo?.
I_Ono of tho most difficult problems ?
that tho Soii I hern people hiivo ovor
boon culled upon to consider, is met '
when wo attempt to lind the proper,
place for tho negro in tho politics j
of tho country. In'fnct, tho negro .
question generally hes puzzled tho |
minds of the wisest and best of oiy
statesmen and philosophcjE . Olid t
is liko'y^to go down'^.he ages, still
eusltrouded in mystery. Ono thing
is, sure; it is not probable that
South Caro.'i nu can long maintain
peace ami prosperity among all |
classes of her citizens, and^ attain
that degreo of prosperity so much
desired, so long as we have a das i 1
of citizens in our midst who are;
subject to our laws, and yet in poli- !
tics are virtually ignored. While j
from*e.vperioneo wc have learned |
the utter Incapacity of this race to ;
govern themselves, yet it is to he ;
regretted that we of the Sic.ith ',
have not been aide io convince thc i
negro that the white dom >eral is
his friend. Whenever this is done;
whenever he finds that the demo
cratic party ls friendly to his race
and will alford him that protection '
which he has a righi to expect;
whenever he is brought to see tin
benefits that dow from democratic ,
control,"and is induced to embrace ;
this party because of its superiority;
and more especially, when he see's
that he Jins a voice in the election
of officers, then wo may expect to j
see this race become more content
ed; we may look for their ara Ina!
There was a time when thoy held
the reins of government, and it is
acknowledged that the success of
tho democratic party In 'Td was i".
a large measure due to their voice
nt the polls. Now that they have
aided in establishing good govern
ment, is it right that they should
he denied some placo in the
political picture.
It behooves every '.rue ami loyal
democrat, not only wh( n danger
threatens, hut now, as at all times,
to urge the colored people to fall
into democratic ranks. They have
a voice, and though for a time it
may he hushed, sooner or later il
will hurst forth and demand recog
nition, like (he spontaneous desire
that seized our forefathers and
caused them to throwofftho British
yoke, or else they w ill see!: some
country that does recognize their
political rights.
Oiling; Advice.
It is bard forman to conceive
an easier task than giving ad
vice. From lin; youthful school
boy who has scarcely learned tho
Creek alphabet, or heard of such
a thing as a Latin Primer, tojthc
most venerable old fogy (hat ever
pointed out dangers to the "young
America," or breathed condemna
tion upon the advancements and
progress of civilization, we lind
that free advice con- (tutes thc
chief stock In trade with all, and is
given in wasteful profusion noon
every occasion.
To tho experience of others; tho
history of the past, ns handed dow n
to us in worlets (hat are the offsprings
of superior learning and wisdom coll
ided with tho experience and ob
servation of ages, we aro indebted
for the attainments of tho present
age. It is only hy viewing the suc
cesses and failures of (hose in whose
footsteps we aro treading, that we
can make substantial progress. Ho
who undervalues tho advice of
those competent to advise, or .seek -,
to steer his hark irrespective of the
beacons on the shore, or the dan
ger slguals In bis course, will sure
ly meet disaster.
It ls not difficult to distinguish
between true and genuine advice,
administered for tho purpose of
improvement, and (hat which,
though often given willi a show of
earnestness, Is only tho effusion of
chronic growlers, and being un
solicited, ls seldom appreciated.
Many are anxious to tell others
how to do that which, during a
lifetime, thoy could not accomplish

Broad railroad, when tho "No Sub
