It is now stated that Congress will

opened their centenuial celebration

and was received with the wildest
euthusiam. Our citizens delight to
honor the Ex-President, and will continue
to do so for ages to come.

Knights of Labor, denies the report
that there will be a general strike on
the 1st June for eight hours. He says
that the public will have to be educated
before any successful effort can
be made for reduction of a day's work
to eight hours, but that it will come
sooner or later, and that when it does
it will be better for the employers as
well as the laborers.
Mr. J. A. M., of the Keics and
Courier, has been throwing hot shot
into the managers of the Savannah
centennial celebration for their treatment
of the reporters of the press.
From his statement their treatmenc
must have been very bad and unheard
of in a public celebration of that kind.
As a general rule their wants are supplied
more promptly than that of any
other class, and we are at a loss to
assign a reason for their neglect by

A serious riot occurred at tne McCormick

The Citadel "Dudes'' made a splendid

a desire to sec the South Carolina

always turned out the best of men.
His wishes were gratified and the

The papers are again agitating the
matter of nominiuating candidates for
Congress by primary elections. It is
certain that the present mode of nominating
by conventions is by no means
acceptable to people, notwithstanding
the fact that the results, as seen in our
present members of Congress, are not
altogether unsatisfactory. The principle
underlying the primary system is
certainly the correct one. The difficulty
lies in its application to the
choice of candidates for Congress. To
go no further, if the plurality plan be
followed, the chances are that the most
populous county will choose the Con

The New York Herald of a recent1
date shows to the Democratic party its
duty in regard to tariff revision. In
j commenting upon the Democratic platI
form, it says:
j That is a matter which Democrats
j from Democratic States ought to think
I of. If Pennsylvania and Ohio could
be counted on to help elect the Democratic
Presidental candidate in 1838,
what the men of these two States now
want, or think they want, might be
entitled to consideration by Democrats.
But these Pennsylvania and Ohio'
Democrats assume to rule and overrule
and defeat their party in Congress, i
and then they go home and let their ;
States in the Presidential election swellj
the votes of the other side. Under i

The proposed action of the Demo- 1

Mr. B. R. Tillman's allusion to the j

altogether unsupported by facts, of i

Mr. B. R. Tillman, in his wisdom, ;
ought to know it. No class has vet I
graduated from the Citadel as re- j
organized, and hence it is impossible i
to say whether the outcome sha'.l con- i

Tillman can't decide that matter as yet. ;
But this much may be said?that the ;
Citadel Academy is now a more ;

We are among those who have:
doubts of the necessity for the Citadel !
as a part of our public school system, j
We rather incline to think that were
the money spent upon it devoted to
the South Carolina College, and the
scholarships in the Citadel transferred
to the College, more good might
follow. But the Citadel is here. It is
doing a good work. It is therefore best
to give it a chance to carry on that
work at least for a time longer. It is j
certainly unjust, as well as childish, j
to undertake to bring the institution
into ridicule by calling it a "dude j

Toe New York Star thinks that the
interest of the people of the United
States in the enfranchisement of Ireland,
though based exclusively 011 the
spmpathy our people have always felt
for her gallant and oppressed children,
might well have a more
practical foundation. Ireland, with
her legislation iH her own hand?, and
with the impetus to all enterprise
which that condition would assure,
would soon become a large customer
ot ttie umtea states- tvnat sne is now
a few facts will disclose. The exports
to Scotland from the city of New York
list year were in value over twentyone
millions and a half dollars; to
Ireland less than two millions. The
little city of Leith, with a population of
about G0,000 people, imported from
New York double the value of all the
importations which Ireland made. |
Glasgow imported nine times as much
as all Ireland. This was not simply a
result of Ireland's poverty, for she paid
in taxes to the imperial treasury last
year nearly rorty millions or dollar?, j
but because her commerce like her j
I administration is enslaved and alien, j
| With a home government adtninisterj
ing her finances she would soon have,
j as she had in 1790, a commerce of her
! own, and no country would profit by
| that so much as the United States?and i
| none would so deserve it.
Wk ca'.l attention to the noticc pub- j
i iished by Mr. T. S. IJrice, calling a j
j mass meeting of farmers here on the!
first Monday in Jam'. I his call is
issued under the authority of the
Faamers' Convention, and, as we understand
it, is intended to perfect the
'organization ot' the fanners in this
| county, as forming a part of the genj
era! State organization. We trust
I thai there will be a full meeting?much
j larger than either of those held here
previous to the Siate Convention. If
this farmers' movement is to do any
j good?if, indeed, it is to command the
respect ot thinking peopie?it must be
a general movement, and not the
"uprising" of three or four dozen
people in each county. Viewed simply j
as an experiment, the scheme marked |
out by Mr. Tillman, and approved by j
the Farmers' Convention, cannot be !
well tried unless it be backed by the i
great body of farmers. The sngges- j
tions made by the Contention are
most of them old, but they are none
j the less worthy of a trial. To give
! them a fair trial the farmers in a body |
j must approve them. If" these sugges-1
| tions are simplv Mr. Tillman's, or ;
any other individual's, the Legislature i
I may be pardoned if they give little i
I heed to schemes which, while really j
j promising many good result?, also j
j nvolve a large increase in the expen- j
ditures of the State. The responsibil-1
ity of making these changes ought to
rest on tho*e who have urged them.
And those who have suggested them?
the State Convention?should be
backed by the great body of farmers
in South Carolina. For ourselves, we
shall measure the peopWr belief in the
justice of Mr. Tillman'- complaints,
! and their faith in the efficacy of his
proposed remedies, by the extent and
the character of the organizations to

KJK, lit IV H-V? iVOVlutioiiS
of tbe recent Convention, under ,
which Mr. Brice makes his call. j
Tiie State Agricultural Department
has furnished to the press a report of
the condition of the crops of the State
to the 1st May. The report of the
department is condensed from over
two hundred special reports from dif
erent portions of the State, ana shows
that notwithstanding the backward
spring, the farmers are alive to their
work. The lands as a general thing
htjve been better prepared for the
crops ami better fertilized, although
the report shows a general decrease
in the amount of commercial fertilil-'
izers used. The small grain crop,!
owing to the extreme cold winter is j
not as promising as last year, and in :
some portions of the State most of the I
land was fitted upand planted in other J
crops. The acreage in tobacco has !
increasad 43 per cent, over last year,:
and considerable interest has been
manifested in the crop. Experiments
in its culture are being conducted by ;
farmers selected by the department,
aim uy many tuners 111 every county,
and our people may expect a full
report from them in the fall. Labor
is reported better than usual.
In concluding the report, they say
that less supplies will be used during
the year; le;-s commercial fertilizers
have been used; stock is in good con-;
ditioti and lands have been better
prepared than usual.
Upon the whole the report is very
encouraging, and if good seasons are '
received, we may expert a good
Gladstone and Home Rule.
Mr. Justin McCarthv. in a cable
gram lo the New York Herald, commencing
upon Mr. Gladstone's home
rule bill, says:
Mr. Gladstone's measure will not
pass this session?will not pass in any
session in its present shape. But, all
the same, Mr. Gladstone has already
carried home rule. No Parliament
will ever agaiu attempt to carry on the
imperial business until it has settled
the home rule question. Few indeed
are the men who would now venture
to get up in any public meeting and
say they are opposed to all manner of
home rule and don't believe it necessary
to discuss the question. Only
one year ago?less than one year ago?
the parrot cry of nearly all the English
newspapers was, English states
men must never consent even to listen
to argument on the question of home
rule. For several years Gladstone was
in favor of the "principle of home
rule, but had always two great difficulties?lie
was not quite satisfied that
the majority, the real majority of the
Irish people, were strongly in favor of
home rule, and he had not seen what
he considered a satisfactory plan to
accomplish home rule. The'first difficulty
was removed altogther by the
late elections and the return of eightysix
home rule members. The second
difficulty Mr. Gladstone resolved by
trying to devise a scheme himself.
That"particular scheme may fail?in
all probability will fail?but if it fails
it will only be succeeded by a scheme
I Detter, more comprenensive, mure
(satisfactory, which will bs passed;
maybe by Liberals, maybe by Tories,
i but it w ill be passed. Gladstone will
educate England as Parnell 1ms educated
From the foregoing it would seem
that Mr. Gladstone is far ahead of his
colleagues in the matter of home rule
for Ireland. He prefers to give it to
the Irish people, while it can ^e done
! as a matter of right and justice, as seen
by the English people, and not wait
until Ireland gets in a position to successfully
demand a home rule for herself,
whether the English want 10 give
it or not. As the bill now stands,
home rule can be granted, and at the
instance of the greatest English statesman.
What will be the result of the
bill no one can foretell, but though it
be defeated this time, the effort will
| again be made, and made until Ireland
breathes the air of freedom. It must
come sooner or later, and the only
question to be solved is whether it
shall be given freely, or shall England
nroif nii*il TivkuH'i noeitmn ?a snp.h
that she can demand it, and 3he be
afraid lo refuse.

Annual Inspection of Troops?Farmers' .
Convention?'The Church War?Other !
Matters of Interest.
Columbia, S. C., May 2.?The past I
week has been quite an eventful one j
in the history of Columbia. The first I t
event of interest was the inspection of' <
the Columbia Battalion of the Palmetto j j
Regiment by Gen. Manigault on the i <
27t!i April. The officers and men have j \
been busy for the last month in pre- ! 1
paring for this inspection. The Gov- *
ernors Gutrds and the Richland Vol?

umeers snowcu uy ineir cinuiicm |
drilling on the parade, the earnestness j
of their efforts. The Guards turned |
out forty-four officers and men?the !
Volunteers fifty-four. The Companies j
were, for the occasion of the parade, j
sub-divided, makingabatallion of four j
companies. The Columbia artillery j,
turned out twenty-four'men with two j(
sections of artillery, and the Palmetto j
Regiment Band, one of the fiuest mili- |
tary bands in the State, in new and j
handsome uniforms made a splendid J
appearance. Col. J.Quitman Marshall j
was in command. After the inspeo- j
tion and parade, the Volunteers enter- I
tained as their guests the Artillery
and Guards at their armory. There
was but one thins to be criticised in
the appearance of the troops, and that j ;
waa the want of uniformity in the dress | ]
and equipments of the battalion. Uni- '
forinity ol time, movement,' dress and :
equipments is the very essence of ,
beauty to the soldier's eye. Our State j
has adopted 3 regulation uniform, and '
it should be worn. Another noticeable
fact was the cadence of the step. In i
Upton's tactics the cadence is one i
hundred and ten in quick time, but a 1
recent order from army headquarters
has changed this to a hundred and
twenty in quick time. The Volunteers :
have adopted this step, while the
Guards retain the old step. The evil
effect is very noticeable in Columbia. ,
As many of your readers aae not
interested in military matters, a change
of subject may not be inopportune.

give a few random impressions gathered
from the Farmers' Convention.
The history of this movement, f om
its inception down to the present time,
is familiar to all newspaper readers,
and now that it has reached the culminating
point the history of its end will
soon be written, 'ihe whole State?
the whole nation?I might say the
whole world?is suffering from depression
in all branches of business.
The agricultural interest being the
foundation stone it is natural that the
weight of this accumulation of troubles
should be most keenly felt by
them. This movement was commenced
for the purpose of removing this entire
load of trouble. No man, it matters
not what is his occupation, has <
been able to divine the true cause, and
explain satisfactorily to himself even
the reasons for the troubles. The
lawyers think the true reason is in the
fact that the farmers are wrong in
their agricultural system; the protectionists
think it is due to the agitation
of the tariff question; the free-traders
think the whole trouble lies in the
protectionists' doctrine; the merchants
think that it is because the farmers
won't work; and <he farmers think
that it is because the lawyers, merchants,
doctors and legislators have
entered into an unholy alliance against
them, and that the combination has
been too strong for them, heuce they
have risen in their might to throw off
the burdens. They seem* to think tnat
all that was necessary to be done was
to assemble in convention and give
vent "to windy suspirations of forced
breath", pass long and tedious resolutions
against everything "on the earth i

"The troubles which infest the day,
Would fold their tents like the Arabs and
silently steal away."
Beyond this rhey have done nothing
which lias yet assumed, a tangible
form. Whether or not they have set
in motion occult and silent influences
which may yet lead to something good
or evil cannot now be foretold.
The personnel of the Convention
has been highly complimenied, and
the conservatism of the body was j
much more than was expected. They |
very kindly decided nol to begin a war
of extermination against the lawyers
and will tolerate them as necessary
evils. Nothing was said or tne various
charges of corruption against the
officials and the existence of a King in
the Si ate. Doubtless because those
who have hinted at such things were
better aware of the falsity of the
charge tlmu any others.
A motion to invite the Governor to
a seat on the floor and to address the
meeting was voted dowu, as was
also a motion to reconsider the vote
while in temporary session. Having (
given expression to this little bit of '
malice and pitiable spite they became
ashamed of themselves, as well they
might, and endeavored to palliate the '
insult lo the Chief Executive by subsequently
inviting him to address
them. This simply shows how far
men will go wnen tney aiiow metn j
selves to be governed by their own j
narrow minds and their illiberal pre- I
judices instead of by the laws of reason
and common courtesy. Tin-re
