[150] Englander, who came to Charleston as William P. Kellogg went to New Orleans, armed with a carpetbag, a pleasant manner, and an eloquent tongue. He has been long in power, and has been savagely abused by the Conservatives, not without good cause; but he is now changing his policy, curbing the excesses of his coloured friends, and listening more and more to the White minority. Such moderate Conservatives as Captain Walker and George A. Trenholm, are disposed to work with him, instead of speaking, voting, and caballing against him. Chamberlain has done much mischief and is capable of doing more. An abler man than Kellogg, he has also a finer field in South Carolina than Kellogg has in Louisiana. Chamberlain has a solid Negro majority at his back. He is also stronger in the North than Kellogg ; not because people in Boston and New York either know or like him better than his rival, but because they have a fresher recollection of the sins of Charleston than they have of New Orleans. In any measures of repression he might choose to adopt, Chamberlain could count on the support of Congress and the sympathy of every city in the North. The sin of Charleston is the sin
