The Sonlh has freqncnlly l)oen as
sured by the Northern press and Re
publican speakers that this country is
a Nation. No convenient opportuni
ty is allowed to pass without an ef
fort to impress this idea upon the
minds of our citizens. They are ex
horted to suffer by-goncs to be by
gones, to lay aside the old and cher
ished opinions of our fathers, to lake.
' hold on the hew ideas of the present
and to keep pace witli the future pro
gress'of the nation. Imlced there is
1 too much zeitl Uud earnestness mani
? feslcd by our Northern Republican
ndviscrs in the matter to be no ulte
rior design than that which appears
upon the surface. If this political idea
can, by any means, be ingrafted
upon the sentiment of tho people and
.? throngh them upon the government,
then the notion of a Federal Union
of States will be destroyed and with
it the correlative notion of state
' (rights or local slate governments?
the characteristic doctrine of Dumoe
racy and "of true Republicanism. To
?effect Ibis the Republican parly re
sorts to special pleading and the use
of insidious cases and thus, if possi
ble, embody Hie political sentiment
of the country in the one concrete no
tion of nation. The poverty of Gen.
Grant and the good will of the masr
ses for his future welfare, afford Re
publican politicians the desired op
portunity and hence we see a propo
sition made to pension ail living cx
I'rcsidcmts for life. This scheme
meets with little opposition even at
the South, because of ils plausible
fentores and a disposition on the
part of our people to exhibit a wil
^lingness.to accede to a proposition so
seemingly just and innocent, made by
the JSorth._S^tyKr~pf-~ Wf ~}t^Vng
journals support it warmly, and even
point out the advantages of the act.
Upon the heels of this comes an
amendment, not to pension Hie cx
Preeidents, but to make them life
members of the Senate with double
Iho salary of an acting Senator. If
this amendment lake the place of the
original proposition and be adopted
by the representatives of tho States
in Congress, then will the attempt to
ingraft the political idea of "A Na
lion" upon the government bcaccom-j
plished and centralism a fixed fact.
. The Nation will acquire the right ol
representation in Congress?a right
it,did not before possess?which will
make it really a Nation. Such acon
. summation would be the destruction
of the cardinal doctrine of Democra
cy, the establishment of an Aristoc
racy and the entering wedge to an
, /Imperial Government. Is the country
ready for tho (dmngc ?
A Reported Exodus.
It eecma ns if the rcsulla of Iho late
'?emotion nave given a new impetus to,
tho exodus movement among the col
ored, people, as'J it is thought that
during the present winter large num
bers will leave from various parts of
the. South* With this object in view,
' secret Organization? are being formed
atid funds collected in all the South
ern Stales. Neither.Liberia nor In
diana, tliis time, teems to be the
'point of destination ; but New Mexi
co and other.South-Western territo
ries holdout more inviting fields and
.aliprd better opportunities for the
colored man to work out his future
destiny. Without calling in question
the wisdpm.of the movement or the
sincerity of those under whose an
apices it is conducted, we would
simply caution the coloicd people of
Oraneeburg to be careful into whose
hands they place their hard earnings.
They have been duped and used as
tools long enough by designing men
lobe wis i' and better economizers I
than this scheme seems to indievtle. i
Thhl a leinovnl will be beneficial to.'
many coloiod people can sea eely he
doubled when it is estimated how
many are living in idleness hole and
in the daily practice1 of the IoWchi'
vices for a iving hol h about the towns
.and i i the rural district* of Our conn
try. A removal or a change in the
mcdeft of life will soon become nbso-j
lately, necessary. The civjlizntion
und progiess of the white rftco will
demand it. Already a sentiment,
I even at the North, is rapidly obtain
ing which will finally demand tbo su
jprcmncy of the white over the colored
I race, and the consummation of this
demand is not very distant in the fu
ture. If a removal to tbo West orj
cine where rs adjbdgod to l>c the rem
edy, then tliere is one principle in 1
Ethnology vvbicb demands the con
sid^ntjou fjf ^4lP Jcolored people:
No iufei ior race has ever been civili
zed, or if civilized, has ever main
tained its civilization, without con
tact with the while race.
The destiny of a race is too impor
tant a matter to be trilled with on the
merest pretenses. .

A First Class Listener.
General Gar field, the President
elect, says that for the next few
months be intends to be "a first-class
listener'' lo the multitude of advisers
who press about him with their kind
offices. This is certainly refreshing
lo ConUling, Cameron ob Co., who
expect to have u controlling influ
ence upon Ibc next administration.
Whether General Gailielil possesses
the firmness'to shape bis own course
remains lo be seen. He will certain
ly have the best opportunity to hIiow
it; and his intimate friends say no
President ever entered upon the office
"more free from entanglements of
every sort" than lie. There are
grounds lo believe, and General Gar
field knows it, that the efforts of Gen
eral Grant's friends Jonkod"jnoro" to
the hitler's candidacy in 1884 than
lo General Gar field's election In 18S0.
This maj- give him an independence
which will make bis administration
more liberal than that of Mr. Ilayesor
any of his Republican predecessors.
At all events the South has nothing
to lose and much to gain byjnti inde

next. The success of previous exhi

onions and the many new and at
tractive features offered by the socie
ty Ibis year warrant ihe expectation
of a large crowd of visitors from every
section of tlio Stata. Indeed more
extended efforts have been made by
the Board of Directors to make this
Pair a most gratifying success than
ever before. Besides the inducements
held oul by the Board, the low raits
of travel on railroads and steamboats
arranged for this occasion, will, at
tract thousands of our citizens to
visit the city both for sight seeing
and business transactions. The mid
dle of the business season, the uear
uppronch of Christmas and the at trac
tions of the Industrial Exhibition com
bined, will make a visit to Charleston
during the ten days of the Fair espe
cially profitable lo our citizens.
Why tho South is Solid.
The South has been mrtdc solid by
the bittor experience she has bad of
Radical rule. This makes it abso
lutely impossible lo';*8urrender) her
SAatc Governments to unrpci-bag and

lidity needs only a polid negro vote,
while lo In oak it needs the withdraw
al of the carp<tL-hapgcr from politics
with bis poisonous influence nod a di
I vided negro vote. In self-defense
only is the?Soulli solid ami must con

Messrs. Srovens nnd Veddcr presen

yards long, bound with silk and sigh

praying the Council to prohibit tho
manufacture and sale of intoxicating
drinks within the limits of the city.
Mrs. Chapin made a short, pointed
and boauliful address in presenting
the petition and ended her remarks
with these very siguilicant 'words :
'If the poor drunkard cannot enter the
abode of the blest what must become
of thoe.c wJin srll nutj those who, license

referred to a spicial committee of

It seems as if the Republican lend
ers of the North cannot accept as
truth the large increase in the popu
lation of South Carolina. They have
so constantly protested ngainst ila
acceptance that Commissioner Walk
er, at the suggestion of President
Hayes, has sent expert enumerators
here with instructions to go from
house to house and sec if the names
reported oii the lists can be found.
It is easy to accept the Radical farce
of 1870 as truth, but uot the Demo
cratic reality. Wc hope after this
new investigation the Stalwarts will
Mr. Ii. P. Chalfield, a Northern
settler in Aiken, and recently an
elector on the Republican ticket in
this State, advises the negroes "to
keep out of politics, work, economize,
accumulate properly, educate their
children and show to the world that
they arc able to compete with the
white race in business." By this he
does not mean they should Uot vote,:
How different is this from the wild
fanaticism of Rev. A. Webster, who
would advise the colored roan to his
utter undoing in order that he, Web-1
slcr, might grow fat on the spoils.

There were no protests filed from any
