The Cinoinnati Commercial correspondent writes trom South Carolina giving uu account of a Duniociatic and reform procossion : ïhere wcre n the whole cavalry " force " about fifteen colored men. They wore arrayed in sashes and ribbons and rode inules, some without saddles. I took a position near the old oourt housti, clostt to a large crowd of colored people, to see what effoot the iirst appearanoe of Democratio darkies would have. ZuuihIh ! Suoh speechen and epitheta ' I stumli 1 hate to be a Demooratie darkie in this town ; wou ld much ruther risk iuy ohances ae a white Republican. Of all the hooting, shoutiug, jeerB and insulta you ever heard, these poor black devils in the Democratie procession caught it. It was the clearest case of attempted intimidation I ever saw in the South.
