TRIUMlPH OF RIGHT, OF PRINCIPLE, AND OF
THlE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS.
The important and interesting case of R. W.
Gibbes v.. E. J. Arthur and John Burdell. the
Mayor and the Chief Police officer of the City
of Columbia, for forcibly objecting Dr. Gibbes,
the Editor of the South Carolinian, from the
Council Chamber, at a public meeting of the
City Council, in consequence of his refusal to
submit to an inquisition, whether he designed,
or not, to report their proceedings, came off, it
the Court of Common Plca=, at Columbia, Judge
Withers presiding, on Thursday last. The
whole of Thursday was consumed in taking the
evidence, and in hearing the argument on a mo
tion for non-suit, which signaily failed; and the
whole of Friday was occupied, by the argument
of counsel to the jury, until 7 o'clock, p. in.
His Honor, Judge Withers, at 10 o'clock, on
Saturday morning, fully sustained the plaintiff,
on every point of law and ground of principle,
in a charge, to the jury, of more than an hour'.
duration. The jury then retired, and, after a
brief interval, returned with a verdict of $:25
damages against Mr. Arthur, (more than double
the atmount, requisite to carry costs,) and of
61 cents against Mr. Burdell, the mere ministe
rial officer and agent of the .layor and Couin
cil, in their outrage on the person and rights of
the plaintiff. Although the verdict (doubtless
wrung, from a reluctant jury, by the invincible
force of the Judge's charge, on the law,) is ut
terly inadequate, either to reimburse the ex
penses of the plaintiff, or to atone for the ouit
rage on private and putblic right, it is yet a full
vindication of the plaintiff's position, taat, as it
corporator and a proprietor of a public press,
lhe had a perfect right, without challenge, or
question. to attend the public mieetings of the
City Council of Columbia, and, at will, to re
port their proceedings, and his forcible ejection
thezrom was a trespass on his person, on is
rights,'as a corp'orator, and on the freedonm of
the press, which entitled him to damtages, for
the unjustified and unjustifiable accumutlation of
wrong. That the verdiet wa so simli is nto re
proach to him. His ts the triumph of right and
principle, and lie can well afford, thutts crowvned
with victory, anti the champion of the freedom
of the pree, to de-pise the paltry consideration
of dollars and cents.
The case was argued, for the plaintiff, by
Jshn Batusket t and Richard Yeadon, Es.quires,
andl, for the defendants. by James U. Tradewell
and Maxcy Gregg, Esquires.
The following are the most important potb
of the Jutdge's charge:
"It is a right in every corporator to attend a
pumblic meeting of the local legislature of the
eity of Columbia. ie may b~e expelled for di.
turbing the debates, deliberations, or proceed
ings of such body, thotugh the nmeetmngs anid
proceedings be public or open tot the corporatora
To exclude a corporator from such pumblic meet
ing or to expel him from it, at mtere pletaure,
or for no reason connected with the free, full and
undiaturbed exercise of their functions, or the
discharge of their duties is niot a lawful exercise
of power-and if force upon the person be used,
it is an assault and battery.
"It is mat ter of common right, in every spe
cies of our elective representative govermntts,
that the voter sliall be allowed, upon condition
of good behavior in his demneanor. to hear the
public debates and witness the pubilic proceed
ings of his representatives, engaged ini the per
formance of public trusts.
" To exclude a reporter and to exclude a cor
porator is not one and the same thing. To eject
a corporator from a pubhlic meeting mterely be
cause it is suspected, or avowed by him, thamt he
mteans to publish a replort of its proceedltmgs, is
not lawful. Yet'if such corporator las shownt
by previous conduct that he caluniates, asper
wes, or misrepresents the Council, and mtisleads
the people, their contstituoecy, it wotuld preset
a que.tionm of some difficulty to say whether hte
might nt, or ought. not to be excluded. It is
not this cause, upon the evidence, atnd neel not
be decidedI. Any corporator who attends ttay
give utnfauir or false verbal accoutnts of proceeinigs.
and the diffe.rentce betwetn himt and the owner
of a paper is only that time latter may give his
account at widier scope and more permanttiet
form. But if tinder giie of the Lbcirty of th
Presse, a commtnon calumniator seeks in chtarac
ter of corporator to mialign tmaliciou.,1y anid to
iirepresent fraudulently the acts anid debates
of a public body of any sort, it would be diffi
cult for him, if that fact were miade to appear,
to show a right to damages, if he be foiled in
such a purpose. To assiuime beforehtand thmat

THE TERRIBLE ACCIDENT ON THE GREAT
We have received by telegraph, from Toronto,
some additional particulars of the terrible acci
dent on the Great Western railroad. The report
that Thomas C. Street, the millionaire of Niag
ara Falls, was among the killed, is erroneous.
He was, however, somewhat injured. Mr. Sam
uel Zimmerman, who is reported as among the
killed, is a wealthy Canadian banker and con
tractor, who owns the large tract of land on the
British side of the Niagara river at the Falls, re
ported to be worth several millions. Within the
past year or two he has commenced laying it out
in parks and for building purposes. is im
provements there are a prominent feature in the
view from Goat Island, and will be readily re
membered by every recent visitor to the ' ails.
Mr. G. was a native of Dauphin county, Pa., and
formerly held a subordinate position in the con
struction of the Pennsylvania canal. By great
industry and good management, lie inproved
his conlition, and some years ago went to Cana
da and becaine a contractor on soei of the great
public works of the province. He gradually en
arged the sphere of his operations, and finally
amassed a large fortune. For some yearshehas
been identified with all the great enterprises of
Canada West, and exercised an ifluence in
financial and internal improvement atT:tirs second

We subjoin the fbllowing dispatches:
TonoTO, March .--We learn the fllowin"
particulars of the railroad accident near Hiamif
ton from a gentleman who left the scene of dis
aster this morning. The accident occurred on
the Great Western railway, at the bridge over
the Des Jardines Canal, which is elevates some
sixty feet above water. The bridge swings, and
it is supposed that the train, which had passed a
short time before, had sunk the bridge so much
that the locomotive of the train was obstructed
by the abutments to spel a degree that the pas
senger cars were raised up and thrown into the
canal. The number of passengers were estima
ted at front seventy-five to one hundred, of which
only fifteen were t'aken alive from the wreck, and
of these five have since died.
The water in the canal is eighteen feet deep.
and nearly all those not immediately killed were
drowned. The engine and tender, with the engi
neer and firemuan, were pitched headlong into
the canal, and are buried twenty feet below the
surtace. The baggage car and two passenger
cars are completely shattered, and one of the lat
t.r turned bottom side upwards and nearly sub
When our informant arrived this morning, the
parties were still busy in extricating the bodies
from the wreck. In one out-house adjoining the
station house at Hamilton about fifty or sixty
corpses of men, women and children were lying
on one floor.
No inquiry into the cause of the accident has
yet been held. Most of the passengers were
from Hanmilton, Toronto and the adjoining towns.
It is intended to have public funeral of the
unfortunate sufferers on Monday. Coininittees
have been forned to wait on the friends of the
deceased. Manty of the bodies have already
been removed by the relatives. Filly-seven bo
dies have been recovered up to-night.
It is agreed that no blame attaches to the
switchman or engineer. The li-out axle of the
locomotive seems to have broken. The engine
probably was partly on the rails until half way
over the bridge, when it fell from the rails to the
timber fraiming, a distance of fully 1 imches.
The shock thus caused seems to have snapped
the whole structure. It is said that the engineer
(brave fellow !) whistled " on brakes." and, while
endeavoring to avert the catastrophe, wvent down
with the engine.
We can positively contradict thme report that
the switch was wrong, and that this caused the

The Rev. Basil Manly.
THIs revered Baptist Minister will preach in our
town on Thursday and Friday nights of this week. It
is only needed to mention the fact, to fill the Baptist
meeting-house to overflowing. Dr. MANLY is beloved
here, as well by those who have never seen him as by
those who sat under the droppings of his pathetic
eloquence thirty years ago. He is traditionally treas
ured up in the hearts of this people. And when he
comes amongst us, it will be like a long-absent father
coming back to his children and grand-children. Dr.
MANLY is warmly identified with Edgefiold; he mar
ried here and commenced his ministry here. Surely
every one will turn out to hear his teachings. Some
how or other, the face, and manner, and pathos, and
purity of this eminent Divine always suggested to our
mind the idea of John of 'atmos.

PROVIDENCE AND POLITICS.
We have said that" an over-ruling Providence has
manifested itself unmistakenbly in the care of the en- u
tire American Republic. It is no less a fact, that this g
exhibition of favor and protection from on High has p
been especially vouchsafed to the Southern and Slave- q
holding division of this Confederacy. However rabidly iu
the canting Abolitionist may inveigh against the sin F
of slavery ; however, with fiery wrath, the Henry v
Ward Beechers of the North may pronounce upon us e
the doom of heaven's vengeance; it is nevertheless d
certain that we have thus far been preserved, and t
strengthened, and enlarged, in a manner that astounds t
the philosophy of the world. The South has been, r
for many years. the slandered and abused of all peo- 1
ple, for many years the oppressed of its own govern- a
ment; and yet a fairer prosperity, happier homes, a t
higher generosity, a more elevated religion, a more
devoted patriotism. a more permanent condition of r
well-ordered society. and, withal, a more brilliant fu- t
tuto, do not belong, have never belonged. to any other -
branch of the human family. This is not mere asser- t
tion. In England, ,m well as the Notrh, powerful pens 4
and powerful tongues have long been at work to in- 1
fluence the downfall of our institutions and the coo- c
sequent destruction of our whoje.polity. They have t
had the advantage of appealing to the passions and
prejudices of men without a voice to gainsay their
wild and furious charges. They have had the advan
tage of attacking a (so-callei) national sin whose very
name, as a watchword in the mouths of eloquent en
thusiasts, might have become the instigation of an al
most universal enmity to our section.. They have done
what they could to lift the sl;re-holders of the South
up before the world as monsters of iniquity. They
have represented the condition of African servitude
in our midst according to their own uninformed and
jaundiced view of it, 'and the truth has nut been ex
hibited to correct their one-sided and exaggerated
statements. They have declaimed in the lecture-room
and in the.pulpit against us, and have made the press
to teem with their tirades of abuse and their appeals
to the magnanimity of the Christian (?) world. They
have called down upon us, in their prayers, the visi
tation of God's vengeance. And yet to-day, byth.
inherent justice of our cause, we are stronger before
mankind and have more marked assurances of Hlca
yen's continued watchfulness than ever before. To
day, the products of slave-labor are more abundant
than ever before, and more valuable in themselves.
To-day, the area of slavery is wider than ever bofore
and the prospects are brightening that it will speedily
be extended. To-day. mankind are more dependent
upon us than ever before, and the opening up of new
nations to conmnerce is ready to double the field of our
usefulness. Is there not the hand of Providence in
We have been too the oppressed of our own govern
ment; nor has it been a light oppression. Such was
the fearful aspect in which it presented itself to South
ern patriots of a past day that they themselves an
ticipated the ruin of their country and the devastation
of their homes as a necessary and unavoidable result
of it. Hear the eloquent McDmera, as he pictured
the fate of the South under the odious operation of the
old Tariff: "Where all was' bright, and prosperous.
anid happy," said that hero-orator, " they will behold
nothing but decny, and gloom, and desolation; with
out a :put of verdure to break the dismal continuity,
or even a

lie felt and believed what he was saying, and so
thought and spiko many of his compatriots of that
day. But the Almighty hand had planted us here as

was married to Mr. White with whom she lived
happily for twenty-five years. Within the past
three years she and her husband have been called
to follow the remains of two of their little ones to the
silent tomb ; and also to mingle their sympathetic
tears with those of their eldest son shed at the loss
of an affectionate and be!oved wife, whom they
consigned to the grave. But scarcely had those
tears been dried ere that family circle was again in

Some four years previous to her decease Mrs.
WHITE was permitted to rejoice at the conversion
of her two eldest sons, and their union with the
Church, at Mount Moriah, to which she had some
years previously transferred her membership. Since
that interesting event, she became more and more
attached to the house of God and evinced a grow
ing spirituality of mind fitting her for the society
of the blesbed in heaven. suddenly has she been
taken from a large circle of dear friends, leaving
