Ifasby'i Domestic Sacrifice.
I hey made other sacrifices. When torn
irom my peceiui nome to nte our inenas uv
tne Bontn, a neaawne wmcniiuvea. iiite
wuz a peacexui streeme and we floated
calmly along. She took in washin and- I
talked politics in a neighborin grocery, v in-;
yestin the proceeds uv her labor in the gus-J
tenance afforded at the bar. " When I re
turned wat met me ? The killin vuy men
outrite wuz not the most heart-rendin- in
cidents uv that fratrlsidle struggle. It wuz
the sevrin of domestic ties the tearin down
uy domestic altars, and the
families. When I returned
and the separatin nv
I was coldly
met. Looizer Jane wuz washin as : yoosual,
only harder than, ever, and I nbtist the
children hed new, frocks and . shoes. The
fust afternoon I wuz at home I askt her J in
my old familyer way fur a dollar and a half,
ez I wanted to go down the street.
"That's played I" she remark t. " J 5
Heven't you got it !n I askt
"I hey," Ehe replied, "and I, propose to
keep it. I hey ; diskivered suthin since
ybove bin gone. I hey found it's easy enuff
to support myself and the children, washin
at a dollar a dozen, but add to that a hul
kin man with a nose like - yoors, and it's
harder than I keer. This house is mine

And she calmly rung out a shirt ez tho
wat she sed was a common-place remark
insted uv a practikle divorse. ! . --.
I left her. : A feendiah Ablishnist had put
this idea into her head and she hed actid
onto it Since that time I hey wended my
way alone, subsistin by chance. Ablishnism
owes me the home I hed. Ablishnism owes
me the likker I ought to her hed, out nr '

Southern Democratic Freedom
We hear much among the : Southerners
about interference wUbltheir sacred
and liberties, by oppressive State- and
National O Governments.' The papers 'are
full of wailing:,- and have: been; ever since
Andrew Johnson re-kindled and re-inspired
the treason which the loyal masses? -of the
North had once overcome, and . that, one
continuous and distressing wail is that the
white people of the South are fearfully op
pressed, that their rights have , .been - taken
away irom them, winch meaDs, : their right
to rule, to have everything their own way
to monopolize all the i: honor, : power, : and
wealth of the State. They talk of the heavy
yoke they are under, of their sufferingf , ') of
the indignities to which they" are Eubjeeted,
of !Negro supremacy," "Radical rule," and
a thousand other things so very galling . to
their high-toned and honorable ; natures ;
all of which "they .cannot . abide.;Their
Lwertxti have been overthrown a. hevare
a poor oppressed and suffering i peopled
thIoa fh rin 1 nn ths
nartv Von from .Tanuarv to December,
What do the leaders of the 'Democratic
party in this State mean by these complaints f
iWhat liberties have : they lost? In Vfhat
way are they oppressed ? ' Some i ideas of
old-time liberty in South Carolina, the spirit
and temper of which still lingers in the
democratic party, may be gained byj a re-f
cent occurrence in Sumptcr county; ft - f
2 Mr, David G. Robertson, a; brother of . TJ.
S. Senator T. J.: Robertson, keeps a store ten
miles Irom the village of Sumter, 'where he
is making an honest livincf by tradjng 'with
whoever is pleased to patronize him. ( Some
dayssince a party of thirty a or , forty men,
all disguised And representing themselves
as 'Ku Klux Klany the resurrected i soldiers
of the Confederate dead," made , their ap."
pearance at his place of business, and with
hideous cursing and imprecations told him
that "because he traded with colored people he
must close up his store at once ; that if it
was opened alter that night they would
burn it to the ground. It was supposed at
first, that this diabolical threat' was ma'de on
political grounds, but this was probably an
error, as the I same party at once proceeded
to the store of a'"-' known Democrat, some
four miles distant, and with similar threats
and presenting the same objection - viz.i,that
he accepted the patronage of colored people,
actually frightened the poor man into a
compliance with their demands. Four of
the number have been arrested and prose
cutions commenced against- them. They
beloDe to the "first families the
racy," and are all sound, fierce Democrats.
t And this is a sample and an illustration
of the Democratic idea of liberty in this
State. "By their fruits ye shall know,' and
surely - the pseudo-Democratic ' party of
South Carolina has, within the last genera
tion, borne fruit enough to be fully known.
It really makes no difterence what the I mo
tive of these men was; whether it was to
turn the trade of the colored people into
other channels, or whether it was political
Dreiudice or done for "mere devilment." it
bears the same savage character. ' '
And this style of "liberty" has long been
the curse of our State, infecting society in
all its ramifications, like a deadly disease.
There has long been a class in this State
who seemed to think that the heavens1 and
the earth, and all that in them is, J.eiisted
only for them that they were the natural
and divinely appointed rulers of all men
and things within their reach, They were
under no restraint of law or tears of punish
ment. So far as they were concerned,! the
law was a dead letter, the courts , were a
farce, and the Government a mockery, j No
man, be he a stranger or to the manor born,
might express his sentiments freely i uhless
thev harmonized with those of the ruling
class. :. No man could prosper in business

wrongs and burdens under which they
groaned. There was no liberty except for
one class, and their liberty was license, for
it knew no law except their own! ungov
erned passions. ; I !
And it is this liberty to lord it over all
things and to oppress all other men ! which
these men have lost. They groan because
alast we have a strong government, which
is 'determined to protect all the people be
cause we have laws to be respected and
obeyed by all because the poor man now
has equal rights and privileges with the
rich because this small and once all-powerful
claFj "can no longer tyrannize over all
the rest of the people of the State, and are
compelled to mask themselves to do their
cowardly but congenial Work. Because of
all these, things they say they are oppressed
tneir UDerues are gone. , Thank Uod,L)em

which you Rive : they are huge gaunt va-
cant dreams, ioreyer incapable, . by nature,

My clear advice, theretore, would be, give
up'all that ; retuse to employ your intellect

might remain silent, and bend its whole
forre on illuminating one's awn poor path
in such a wilderness ; on. more and more
clearly ascertaining, for at- least one earnest
man, What to do, and How to do it ? -i
Probably you will not adopt this advice,'
almost certainly not at once; nor shall that
disaffect me at all. ' Your Tract I tound
throughout to be rather pleasant except one
small section, treating; of a thing I never
mentio n unless compelled the tbiog which
calls itself ' spiritualism," (which might
more fitly be called " Ultra brutalism,"

Miscegenation A Deceased F. F Y. Mar-

Claimed by the Relatives of the
' - Latter. .
A tew weeks since William O. George, a
prominent citizen of Richmond, Va., died
there, leaving an estate valued at about
$250,000. ,: As sood as his death was made
known, preparations were made by some
colored people in this city to secure posses
sion oi his estate. Their claim is based up
ou an alleged marriage between Mr. George,
who was a White man and an "F. F. V." of
the old school, and a colored woman named
Caroline Jackson. The marriage took place
in this city on the 21st of April lajst, and a
certificate to this effect has just ' been for
warded to Richmond, to be used as evidence
in the suit now pending in the Hustings
Court, at that place.
It appears that Caroline was formerly a
slave of Mr. George, and that he esteemed
her sqr highly that the twain became the
parents of a numerous family. Before the
abolition of the peculiar institution, Mr.
George manumitted his favorite servant, and
sent her to this city, where she has since re-
