I of patty organization and the obliga

1 our noble Senator to be commended

but it lakes a hero and a statesman to

ho has no purity himself. We must
confess that we admire the action of
j.Gen. Hampton ; it savors of that mor

Jn 187G W. P. KeUogg, Republi
can, and II. M. Spotford, Democrat,
were opposing candidates for the
Sonatorship of Louisiana. The elec
! lion was contested and the credcnli
1 als of both were presented to the Sen
ale, the fust in January 1877 and the
isocond in March of the same year.
1 These papers were, on their presen
tation, referred to the committee on
i privileges and elections. This com
i mitten reported the case back upon
i its merits and recommended that
j Kellogg be admitted lo bis scat. The I
Senate, then being Republican, adop
ted Ibe report and Kellogg was duly
seated. Being discussed and decid
ed upon its merits, the case was ad
judged to be final as to tille to a seal
in Congress. At the next session
j iLo Democrats were in Ibe majority
and because now facts had been dis
covered, a r esh investigation of the
I case was bad and the committee rc
I ported in favor of unseating Kellogg
i and seating SpoQbrd. Upon the
j adoption id' this last report Senator
; Hampton made the speech which ar
rays him against the majority of the

I defeated, contested seals will be de

j subscribed, may be cited as a finality ;
!if the report, however, bo adopted
icd then the party, in control at lb'*

it, right or principle. Should such a
case be established as law, then our

stant confusion, at the mercy of a

A Colored Vice-president.
Ever since tho right to hold office
und to vote ha3 been conferred upon
tho negro race, there has beeu a dis
position on the part of colored politi
cians, .in State polities at least, to de
mand a recognition oftbat right by
claiming full equality vrith the whites
to hold otlice from the lowest to the
highest positions in the State. In the
Legislative Department this has been
willingly accorded pretty universally
at the South ; in tho Judiciary De
partment there have been a few in
stances where negro judges succeeded
in reaching the bench ; and in the Ex
ecutive Department South Carolina
furnishes a case of a negro who Idled
the high position of Lieutenant-Gov
ernor. Having succeeded so well in
State politics, the same demand was
made, though with only partial suc
cess, in National politics. There
have been a few colored Senators and
Representatives in Congress, but
neither the National Judicial nor Ex
ecutive Departments have bef graced
by a colored representative, a...l the
philanthropists of the Republican par
ly have been plied on every occasion
of an election by their ambitious pets
for recognition of their right. Their
colored brethren from many sections
of the South have lately been earnest
and persistent in their efforts to se
cure the second place on the National
Republican ticket lor Senator Bruce
of Mississippi, and the ?leaders of the
party have been equally zealous in
dodging the issue so plausibly made.
Nothing could seem more just or rea
sonable than this demand of the col
ored people for lecoguilloiK and noth
ing so 8f rely tested the sincerity of
those Republicans who have always
cried "(be poor negro" just befoie a
political campaign. To save the par
ty and the credit of its leaders, Mr.
Bruce has been induced to decline the
nomination. The Republicans know
better than to make such a nomina
tion for in the day it is made their
party dies at the North. If the pluck
of the negro be equal to bis ambition
and bis political strength, we advise
him to lot'CO the recognition of his
right to a place beside Grant on the
Presidential ticket. lie can do it,
ami if bis nomination nuns the party
let the wretched bubble burst.

A Change of Front.
We notice in the last issue of the
Sea Island News that Ex-Lieut-Gov.
Gleaves, colored, has published a let
ter to the colored people in which be
comes out in favor of Mr. Sherman
as the Republican Presidential candi
date instead of Gen. Grant. It is also
worthy of note that the New York
Tribune gives Sherman four voles
from South Carolina ill its estimate
regarding the canvass. Whether
(?leaves writes in the inlet est ol
Sherman from personal conskleration
and is but an auxiliary to the Tri
bune, or whether he reflects the chang
ed sentiment of the colored people of
South Carolina, is \\ matter of some
interest just now. it indicates one
of two things ; that neither Grant nor
Blaine is acceptable to Ihe party and
the}' wish to bring up a civilian of uc
knowleded ability and sound princi
ples with the hope of running him in ;
or that Sherman, mindful of bis own
interest, has offered better induce
ments to Ihe colored voters of the
Sou b than Gen. Grant, and, there
fore, the change of sentiment in his
favor. Let. this be as it may Democ
racy is sure to win.
According to the reports from the
different counties that have taken
action in the matter, there seems to be
a majority in favor of leaving the
nomination of a State ticket to the
good sense of the delegates when as
sembled at Columbia. This is doubt
less the better plan because all the
information necessary for a correct
conclusion may be obtained by com
paring notes and a free communion
between the delegates. Five or six
counties only have declared positively
against early nominations and have so
instructed their delegations. If there
bo found to exist no controlling
reason or urgent necessity for .June
nomination, it will, in our judgement,
be better to postpone the matter until
later in the summer. Every practi
cal reason seems to indicate this as the
h< tier policy; The character of the
delegations thus far selected is a
guarantee that the best possible
course will be adopted by the conven
tion. All tho people want is a Dem
ocratic success next fall and they
must have it.
We see by the News and Courier,
'.hat Ihe friends of Col. W. J. De
Treville, in Charleston, have put his
name in nomination for the Solicitor
ship of the first circuit. Wo took
occasion once before to say that Col.
DeTrevillo is well qualified for the1
OfUcc, and that Orangeb'irg is jusly
entitled to the nomination. Let his \
friends in Charleston do their part
and Orangeburg will take care that
the oflbc be well filled. |
Hagood and Gary.
About half the counties have been
heard from through their conventions,
and in each of these a canvass was
made in ordor to ascertain which of
the leading candidates held tho con
fidence of the people.- No accurate
conclusion, however, can be arrived
at?the li untied data will only allow
an approximation which might be ox
j pressed in short fonn by the propor
tion of I) to 1 in favor of Gen. lla
good. Several of these counties have
not declared their preference for
either candidate, while a few have
expressed their opposition to Gary,
but no preference for Hagood. This
leaves the matter in extreme
doubt as to Gon. Gary and Hagood,
with a very decided probability in fa
vor of a third man being brought to
the surface ami run in. The reports
from a few more counties will throw
much needed light upon this perplex
From an exchange we clip the fol
lowing paragraph : "In the African
I Methodist General Coulcrencc, at St.
j Louis, recently, tho, action of the
Iiishops in deposing Dr. R. II. Cain,
of South Carolina, fjfrptn the Secreta
ryship of the Board of Missions, was
sustained by n decided vote. Dr.
Cain was removed because he was too
deeply engrossed in politics to attend
to his duli.es in the church." The
Doctor is belter known here by the
! appropriate appellation of 'JDaddy
?Cain." Orange burg County had the
bad luck of being misrepresented in
Congress several years ago by this sa
ble political preacher, but what be is
doing now in a jvoliiieal way we arc

I were : First, tha1 be desired to leave

as h? was certainly their true friend in
i the darkest period of their history.
While the bravo men who .survived
the ''Lost Cause" have been hauling
against corruption and evcty conceiv
able evil that could threaten a peo
ple as the result of an adverse revolu
tion, the noble ??omen of the South,
: treasuring the sacred memories of the
past, have been actively engaged in
faithfully earing for the graves of
' those noble spirits, who fell in defen
ding a cause they believed to be both
j righteous and just. No age affords a
parallel of such love ami tender devo
tion lo the memory of tho dead as
j that which adorns iho present and wins
! the praise of the civilized world. All
j honor to our noble women for such
touching and devoted constancy.
Drinking, North and South.
I Among other charges made against
the Southern people by the saintly
j brethren of New England is that of
'excessive drinking. It titillates the
devoutly moral sensorium, such head
I lings as 41 Lawlessness,'' and ''Bad
j Whiskey," in delineating the condi
tion of Southern affairs. And it dc
lightetb them exceedingly to register
tucmsclvcs from the land of so-called
"steady habits." The crimo of drun ?
kenness among our people we shall
: neither paliatc nor deny. As a mat
jtor of his'ory, however, it may be
j well lo note that there are other glass
j houses than ours. Revenue Commis
sioner Raum, one of tho faithful, in
ibis annual report, makes some devel
opments, not particularly gratifying
to these self-constituted judges of
our section. There are, according to
' this report, in the six New England
j Stales the following number of per
sons engaged in the liquor retail
l> adc :
i N?nv Hampshire.S2(I
' Now let us see bow the typical
i Southern Males in equal number com
I pare. The following is the number of \
j retailers :
j Georgia.-2,01 7
j Louisiana. .3,559
i Mississippi.1.392 ;
North Carolina.1,759 ;
in tliis, we huvo taken them East
and West, omitting Alabama, which,
by-the-wuy, has the lowest average.
Taking the appropriate census aver
age, tbe proportion of retail dealers
in the six Eastern States, is about
twice that of the six named Southern
States. Now it is a well established
fact that in any locality the number
engaged in the retail tratlic is a fair
exponent ot the number of drinkers.
Besides, tbe criminal court records ot
either one of the Eastern States
show a larger proportion of crime
from drunkenness than those of the
Southern States And nil this too,
with the large number of ignora.nl
blacks in the South, while those same
Northern Males boast uf their
"church and school house in every
township." As we said above, we
have no excuse lo oiler for the short
comings of our people, but we hardly

on morality in order when her own

WO are prepared to announce to our num

The year 1880 therefore begins with

of our beautiful .Southern laud. Being
(irmly impressed w ith the forc-shadow

the demands they will disclose.
Our Agent in New York is already in

and thus enable us during the present

friends by selling them goods far below
the wholesale market of New York.
It was tho credit system th.it paralyzed
our industries in the past ami caused so
many interests to droop hud wither while
every article needed for family consump

j w as Inadequately compensated, goods ol
every description approached almost fab
