tho condition ot South Carolina, Gov
Chamberlain must bo the most cow
ardly of knaves and tbo most subser
vient of creatures to tbo domination ol
crimo. If "not lesstbnnono hundred"
Republicans "woro murdered because
they wore faithful to their principles
and exercised rights solemnly guaran
teed to them by tho nation," in seeking
tho election ot Ua;es and Chamber
lain, then has Chamberlain been cithor
tho nccomplico or tho obedient slavo of
murderers. He had Republican courts
in ovcry district of tho Stnto ; ho had
Rebublican ShoriD's, Republican proso-
euting officers and Republican jurors
in two-thirds if not lour-fiflhs ot the
counties ; ho had tho army to sustain
his ofllcors in tbo execution of tho laws
and tho courts in tho enforcement of
thoir processes and judgments ; ho had
tho Stnto militia, organized, armed and
commanded by his friends and subject
to his call ; ho had a constabulary ol
bis own creation that swarmed in cvory
county ostensibly to sustain his an
thorityj bo had trial justices in every
locality, cf his own faith in neurly all
instances, to sit as committing magis
trates ; ho had nearly n thousand dep
uty tT. S. Marshals appointed by At
torney Goncrul Tnft to strengthen his
hands; bo had tho Stuto, district and
county officers with raro exceptions
obedient to his will; bo had a popula
tion composed of two-thirds blacks and
onothird whites with all tbo blacks
and a fraction of tho whites in sympa.
thy with the Republican party, while
against bis party convictions wero but
ono third of tho people, and they with
out officers, under tho ban of tho army,
and of tho national, State, district and
county officials, with their old military
organizations of which Chamberlain
was a member in several instances
disbanded by tho arbitrary docrco of
Chamberlain; with all these agencies
in bis fuvor and with a helpless oppo
sition, ho bns not punished murder, nor
thoft, nor lawlessness, and has not dar
ed to arraign beloro his own courts
and jurors the men ho so rocklessly ac
cuses ol crimo. Kithor be must accuso
fulsely, or ho most of all accuses Gov
ernor Chamberlain.
"Equally false or scll'accusing in his
violent and indecent arraignment of
President Hayes. What Chamberlain
claims as to Republican success in the
State should be tho truth, it is not tho
truth, and ho well known that his pub
lic ussmUuii iff Rnnoi antvtt by lliv
facts. South Carolina is Republican
in faith by quito two to ono of her vo
ters, and would so vote to-day, if, as
ex-Senator Revols said of Mississippi,
Republicanism had not degenerated
into theft, lawlessness and confiscation
of property. It was under Govornor
Chamberlain's administration, cither
ns Attorney General or ns Governor,
that Republican rule beenmo tho pro
lific parent of waste, ot oppression, of
hunger, of poverty and of publio dis
credit and dishonor, and tho discord of I
thicvos, tho jarring greed of jobbers,
and tho necessity of tho plundered,
wasted bis majority into a minority,
until ho finally attempted to protract
by violence his prostitutod power
against which ovcry class, condition
and raco revolted. Ho was beaten
and knows that ho was beaten, wbilo
Hayes narrowly escaped defeat bo-
catiso of tho crushing mil'stono of tho
domination of which Chamberlain was
tho accepted representative and leader.
And ho was beaten with ovcry possible
agency and clement of power on his
side. He had tho election officers in
ovcry district of tho Stato to receive
and reject such voles as thoy saw fit;
ho had the county boards to computo
and certify tho vote ; ho had tho army,
the militia, k tho constabulary, the
United States Marshals and all tho
moral and political powor of tho Stato
and county governments to aid his
causo, and, with overy applianco in his
bauds that could control votes and A
turns in bisv favor, ho was beaten by
his own return, and tho recognition of!
this fact, now patent to nil tho world,
is tlio offenso of President Hayes for
which ho is accused of perfidy to his
causo and his friends.
"Such is the ungracious and ungrace
ful retirement of Governor Chambcr-
rin ,,'om lreUfle-oi an authority
that he never exercised beyond n cor
poral's guard of Federal troops, and
deeply as ho has wronged his Stnto
and profoundly and wantonly as he
has wrongod tho country by rocklcss
assaults agonist its poaco, ho has wrong
od none so immeasurable as Mr. D. 11.

A Washington dispatch says: "There
aro daily growing indications that the
President is likely to encounter very
soiious opposition to his Southern pol
icy from the uxtrcnio dements ot bis
own party in tho North. Already
tho coining Congress casts its dark
shadow beforo it, and ninny aro tho
predictions of high party oxcitemont
in Washington during tho midsummer
days. Tho recont lottor of Senator
Hlaino is regarded as another notico
from him of stormy times to como in
Washington. His excited declaration
during the apodal session of tho Sen
ate that ho should never desert tho
Southern Republicans is now recalled,
und It is believed that he will make an
open and ot course a vigorous fight
against the wholo Southern business.
Ben Wado of Ohio, has also written
a letter in which ho is represented to
havo arraigned President Hayes and
his policy with his quaint and vigor
ous ulllurllUDa ol Slletnjti. - Martin 1.
Townsend of Troy, X. Y., is said also
to havo prepared a letter in opposition
to tho President's policy.
Tho President is undisturbed. He
has been warned of tho threatened op
position, but maintains at all times his
remarkable oquipoisc. Ho only says
that ho is confident that his policy is
for tho best interests ot tho country,
and that he will abide by it. Ho will
have no controversey with any ono,
but will accord to all mombers ol the
Republican party tho right to approve
or disapprovo of what ho does, and to
express their opinions on it freely.
Nothing will ho permitted to swervo
him from bis purposo."
It looks now as though all tho old
Abolition leaders who failed to pickup
a sword, or shoulder a muskot during
Seward s"irreprossibloconflict," would
sail in for tbo purposo of scaring Mr.
Hayes, and compel him to abandon his
Southorn Policy. They nro cowards
all. Tho proof is against them and
"the government" knows it. Let them
ruvo and froth. Thoy did thomsevca
no harm during tho war nor will they
during peace. They will only bellow,
beast liko.
Retrenching). Tho following bit of
information wo find in all our Radical
exchanges. It reads very nico :
Attorney Oen.ral D.T.n. ha. notified tho U.
S. Diatriet Attorney, that the appropriation for
thodeparlmenlof Justice wal Insufficient to meet
the expanses, and urgca the duty of retrench
ing all possible .zpensea. To great client the
Attorn.ya of ih. United Slates ar. responsible 1
for eipenie. incurred, and naturally the .all Is
mad. upon Cham to stop all ..pen... that can
with pn.priety b. .lopped. There Is nearly a
full quarter of th. fiscal yrar .tilt to ran, during
which time th. .xponse. must ha kept to tb.
minimum point.
Now, it would seem from this as
though "civil service reform" had set
In. Tho oxebangos indicated tell their
readers but half the truth. Tho editors
should tell tho ichote truth as becomes
all christian teachers and let their
readers know that a Democratic Con
gress reduced the appropriation askod
for just tbirty-thrco per cent, and is
another Democratic Congress is to bil
low, tho."slavo hound,"a Phillips calls
the Attorney General, informs his sub
ordinate, that they must practice econ
omy. Tho retrenching feature in tho
Department ot Justico is forced by tho
policy adopted by a Democratic Con
grosj. And that body and not tho
llayos Administration should bo cred
ited with this reform.
Eliza Sherman Pink.hton. Sher
man's interesting Eliza should be call
ed out to ascertain tho publio opinion
of Louisiana, in obodionco to tho in
structions ,cf Secretary Evarts. The
four-lo ono commission should loso no
tiino in interviewing Elita Pitiltston
unless, porchanco, Kliia should provo
to bo nliunilr. 11 she Is not examined
it will bo discounting Sherman most
awfully. KUia was tbo most lovely
and pliable witnoss tho Ohio Sountor
met whilo in Louisiana, and Com
mission number three should give both
an opportunity to riso and explain be
foro closing out the loyal job.
Pooa Ellin. Ellon Grant was bo.
fore a Now York police court rooently
for drunkenness. She said, "Your
Honor, I'm an aunt to Ulysses that
was eight years in Washington. I
went to see him sovoral times. I lost
two sons In the army at Bull Run, and
my husband was lost In Uio navy."
Tho Judge let her go. , , '
vass for abundant proof of this sudden
and salutary alteration. Tho canvass
wits conducted, nswu cannot yet quito
forget, In accordance with a keynoto
fii rnishod by liluine, accepted by Chand
ler and Wheeler, and passed on to the
rank and file of orators and writers
who innde tip the great body of active
workers. Wo woro to advance ugainst
tho Democratic hosts as wo advanced
upon tho rebel army at Gettysburg.
Wo wero to romember tbo prison pens
of Andersonvillo, and resolve never to
allow tho defencelBss freedman to bo
restored to tho tyranny of his formor
master, otc. Wo wero to ward off by our
ballots tho threatening burden of Sou ill
crn claims with which a "Confederate"
Congress would bo sure to overwhelm,
us, and so on. But sinco tbo day of
llayos' fust appearance in Washing
ton wo havo seen in no Republican pa
per tho slightest relerenco to tho great
purposes of tho canvass. Kvon the
poor negroes whom wo heard weeping
upon a street coiner in Florida when
tho count ol tho Stato volos was Anally
rectified, appear to havo dried their
team, or, ut least, fail any longer to
mnko their sobs nudiblo to Republican
editors. Tho telegraph brings no news
of "outrages" or of further develop
ments of "tho Mississippi plan." Kvory
Republican has becomo disgusted with
military control of States, and thor
oughly convincod that a Stato govern
ment which cannot support itself should
not bo propped up by national soMiors.
Indeed It 's no longer tlio freedmon
but the white man who is summoned
most sweetly to toposo in Abraham's
bosom. Mnny a reader might hesitate
to decido winch was Dives and which
was Lazarus. In fact, ovcry issuo of!
Iho war appears lo be settled. Rebel
linn is dead; there nro no rebels it
must havo been a spook with which
Blaino frightened us. It is
safe to predict that, hud Blaino suc
ceeded in his attempt to break down
tho policy of tlio President and con
flno him to tho system markod out by
tho managers of the canvass, wo
should to-day havo been reading tbo
same dismal editorial articles with
which we became so painfully familiar
during tho past administration, and
should be bracing our nerves to endure
for another four years tbo ofllictionsof
the Inst eight; and tbo same men who
are now blithely writing eulogies ol
Hayes' now policy would bo writine
praises ot his wisdom and eourago as
displayed in following tho footsteps of J
his illustrious predecessor."

his first letter a decided success, and
follows it up with another one, which,
lor specious falsehood, lying, dissimu

would ma ko n Pecksniff blush, and
which to waste time answering would
be criminal. If a person stopped to

litely declining to enter upon that

It is curious to note wbut revelations
aro somctimcB couched In a single sen
tence, or even a word. As nn illustra
tion tnli tho onption uf "Uooly's" hint
effusion, "Lo.v Bridge." Tbo imagi
nation ut orco reverts to the classic
precincts of the tow-path along the
"raging canfwl," young "Gooly,"
bare headed, xilb his pants rolled up,
trumiiintr mud behind three distressed
looking iniilei of the gotliic order of
architecture, whip in hand and bis eyo
on the leader, bawling out at intervals
"low bridge." It is also a curious
etiological phenomenon which 1
ievo remains unexplained why
young men, who, for want of capacity,
fail to mako mulo driving a success,
invariably pitch for a printing office
and attempt to "navigate a nnstcpiipor,"
as the renowned Billings has it.
This ono so sooner gets himself
smuggled in .ban ho becomes ambi
tious and cssajs the role of deniagogiio,
writes letters without any regard to
truth, and aipcale lo prejudice and
passion in hepes ot making political
capital. It lio cannot becomo clcbra
ted bo is willing to become notorious,
and rather 1 1 an not be noticed at all
would be satisfied to becomo infamous.
Now, "Gooly," a word to you. Don't
write any oujie letter.!. Abandon your
political dreams they nro "all n fleet
ing show, for man's illusion given." Ro
turn to your first love tho spiko team
on Iho tow-patb. As tho poet feeling
ly expresses il:
"Tlio earlie.l rtnotiou. of love are the iurtrt,
Th. Iruertnitd Ih. moat elnctre j
The earlieet altaclion th. boiom eniareth,
When other, it cuij. to bear."
Seek diligently all along tbo lino for
a vacancy, and if you can find a team
so dilapidated that no ono clso would
bo caught driving it, hasten lo restore
tho equilibrium of nature by dropping
into tho si I nation. You will find no
difficulty in adjusting yourself to the
"environment," and il you do not mako
the fastest time on record, you will at
least havo the consciousness that you
are filling your appropriate niche in
tho economy ot nature, and your call
ing is a living illustration of the fitness
of things.
'Bo virtuous and you will bo happy."

they behave. An cx-Frecdmcn's Ilu-
reun agent, who happens to bo a mem
her of the New York Methodist Con
ference, made a stump speech in that
body a day or two ago with a view to
arousing the war passions of the broth
rcn by playing upon their sympathies
for tho negro. His idan was to secure
tho passu go of resolutions
similar lo thoso which bad been intro
duced "amid great applause" in tho
New England Conference on tho day
before. But tho tirado of Wendell
Phillips against tho President and his
"slave-hound Cabinet" had mado even
less impression in New York than
Massachusetts. Tbo brethren prayer
fully considered tho subject over Sub-
hnih and cutne together yesterday to
adopt a scries of resolutions which, so
far from attacking the administration
approved its policy of conciliation
warmly and bado the President God
speed in tho work he has so well be
gun. Tho wisdom of political deliver
ances by ecclesiastical bodies is always
questionable, but when it is thought
advisable for clergymen to raise their
voice all will agroo that, as in this in

A Revolution. Tho editor of tho

of the noxt Congress, says : Mr. Ran
dolph Tucker, of Virginia, who made
his mark In the last Congress as one ol
its ablest members, and who, wo arc
glad to say, bas been returned again to
thai which will assemblo in May or
Juno, is not in tho least doubt as to
the meaning of tho "Southorn policy"
ol President Hayes. Mr. Tucker plain
ly sayi that Hayes' policy is simply
tho policy of tho Democratic party
which President Hayes has been
forced lo adopt, because the majority
ot the American people demaqd it.
Tho majority of the American people
elected Mr. Tilden to tho Presidency
because tbey meant this policy to be
adopted. Mr. Hayes has been thiniblo

has sonso enough to know that ho will
not bo permitted to carry out any po.
