The Columbia Carolinian, of Tuesday, c
tains a three-column account of " one of
most remarkable meetings" ever convened
Som li Carolina, which was held in thut c
on Monday, the occasion being a celebrati
by the colored men of the city of the pass:
of the Sherroau-Shellabarger Bill, investi
them with the right of suffrage and rec
nising their political equality in tho eye
Tht* Carolinian says :
" In anticipation of the event, their Co
mittee of Arrangements selected the speak
for the occasion, and it is a significant a
noteworthy fact that, notwithstanding t
prcssnce in the city of their Northern frier
aud sympathizers, the gentlemen called up
to address this assemblage were our own t
izans, who had been identified in pcr6on wi
thc war-men who have been disfranchis
bv thc same act which has created this pol
I ?cal (quality between the two races, and j
I men who heartily possess thc confidence
j the entire community."
The speakers on thc occasion wera Ht
W. F. DeSaussure: formerly a Senator in Ci.
gress. Hon. Edward Arthur, Hon. W. H. T
ley, James G. Gibbes, and Rev. David Pic
cit and Beverly Nash (b-uh colored).
The Carolinian, referring to the speech)
i says :
The sentiments altered o:i the oecusit
? ire worthy ol tho time, w irthy of our pe
nie, black and white, and are a living ei
dence of ?hat honor which, thank God, st
stirs the common heart. The speeches '
R.-v. George Pickett and Beverly Nish (bo
col ?red), were mode's of excellence and d
? serving nf all praise as emanations of sen si li
thought fruin a source that bhould he appr
dated. Speaking lor th'.ir race, they treat,
in the present condition of affairs in a spii
of common sense, which wc confess wad n
anticipated, and which encourages the beli
that tlie relations between tbc white and cc
tired men of the Stale ure too intimately co
nected to permit an antagonism or diversil
of interests now or hereafter.''
Gen. Wade Hampton made an i-HeCti<
address, which will be published in full. 1:
I said :
J M Recognizing fully the new oLligatioi
imposed upon the colored mau as a citizei
he advised him as to the manner in which 1
should hereafter conduct himself as a men
j ber of tho community. He alluded not onl
to the ueccssity of education, but of an idet
tity with the people among whom the negr
was born and renred, whose interests were i
no way different from his own, and whos
policy was to be in the future as much th
work of the black mao as of the white. Th
speaker referred likewise to the importanc
of harmony in all the relations between th
two races, as essential in determining the we
faro of the people and securing a permancn
peace and prosperity."
j The following is the substance of the speec
made by Beverly Nash (colored) :
FELLOW CITIZENS : I have been taken so mi
what by surprise and am not prepared to sa;
all that I want to, on this occasion ; but w
know what we have come here for. We hav
cjm? to celebrate the right of suffrage-th
one thiug needful to place us on a romtnoi
platform as citizens. The question has beei
asked, whether we are prepared for this con
ditton of things or not ? I do not blame ou
people for their doubts on this subject, becansi
I our former condition was calculated to maki
them doubt ; but whether we are pn-pared o?
not, we are DOW entitled to vote, under thi
recent law. I must confess ?hat 1 do not liki
that law in all respects, because it disfran
chiscs gentlemen in whom we have moro con
fidence than anybody o'.se, and forbids then
to represent our country ns it should bc re
presented in tho Councils cf the people. Mi
doctrine is, that every man, whether ignorani
or not. who is compelled to pay taxes, i:
entitled to vote. It is a matter of public pol
icy that we should be, because there is adis
j contented element in our midst, composed o
the ignorant people of both classes, whicl
would be greatly disturbed if they were pre
vented by a Convention of the State from ex
ercising the right to vote, and we should havt
a revolution in a teakettle. For the purpose
of peace and quiet, therefore, in our State, ]
waut to see everybody vote except the wo
men. I believe, my frieods and fellow cili
z-ns, we are not prepared for this suffrage,
But wc can learn. Give a man tools, and let
him commence to use them, and, iu time, he
will learn a trade. So it is with voting. W
may not understand it at the start, but, in
time, we shall learn to do our duty.
lt has been said that Calhoun was master
of South Carolina ; Clay the dictator of Ken
tucky, and Webster the emperor of Massachu
setts. But hereafter we are to vote for prin
ciples, not men. And we have good men in
our midst ; men we can trust ; men who nre
j our friends, and have proved, by their acts,
tbaj. they are the friends of the State. In
these gentlemen we must have otifidence
until tbey have proved that they do not de
serve it. I do not believe that there is a man
.ti this district who, if you will reason with
him about these things, will not agree with
what I say. Wc recognize the Southern
white man as the true friend of the black
um i. You see upon that banner the words
1 United we stand, divided we fall;" aud, if
you could see the seal of thc society which
that .banner represents, you would find the
white man and the black mun standing with
their arms locked together, as a type of the
friendship and the union which we desire.
We feel that the white man has not utider
.-tujd the black man as the black man has un
derstood thc white mau ; and if the citizens of
South Carolina had all acted, Rfter the close
of the war, as these gentlemen have done to
day, and spoken their kind sentiments as free
ly, our State would not regret the loss of
twenty' thousand Colored citizens who have
gone abroad because they had not sufficient
confidence to stay. After thc remarks we
havo heard tc-day, we believe (bera is a bet
ter time cou.!ug. Twelve months ago, Mr.
Gibbes said : "Fellow-citizens, weare willing
to meet you halfway ;'? and we are glad to say
that the representatives and public men of
Richland district have done so on the present
occasion. Wc feel that we are understood
I here, and we beiieve that colored men will
hereafter enjov the rights and privileges which
now belong i their race. Tlyre is less pre
judice everywhere South of the Potomac
against the colored man than there is North
of it. [Applause.] I saw in Washington, a
i few days ago, men more violently opposed to
j our advancement than any gentleman here ;
and we know that" the States of New Hamp
! shire, Ohio, and perhaps some others, have re
I fused that political equality which exists and
has been accorded in South Carolina. It is
our duty, therefore., to identity ourselves with
this soil. Here, we have grown from child
hood to manhood. Many of us, whito and
black, have been brought up together ; we
love the people, wc respect their honor; we
know their worth, and 1 ask whether, under
these circumstances, having the power to do
so, we ought not to p'jtiti'jn Congress to re
move the disability which bhuts out that por
tion of our pe ?pie from the elective franchise
in whom we have such long tried confidence.
If we are to have a convention in tho State
for the purpose of changing its constitution,
let it be a convention full of intellect and
power. If the black man is to cast a vote,
let him rest that vote upon a standard of abil
ity, and not be contented to see a body of 1
men who are not competent to discharge the '
high duties that will be required of them. '
We know the old sajiog that " fools rush in >
whoso tagti? iou to If ead." li, ihsreiore,. <
you elect ignorant men, yon will Lave a bad
constitution. Give tn, then, the good men
of thc State. I would rather trust him who
took up arms and went to the battle field, and
has come home with bis honorable scars, be
lieving in the justice of his cause, than he
who skulked from duty, and now claims to
be a Union man. [Cheers.J Such a one is
unworthy the contempt of even a negro. I
would rather trust General Hampton riding
at the head 'of his columu, and shouting to
his men to follow, than auy man who has stay
ed at home awl, when his country was in
danger,, hunted for an iron-clad or a rat hole.
[Cheers.] And so would you. [" that's so."]
Wc don't believe in those people who, since
the war, have dodged around the corners, de
claring they were 'Union men." [No, no.]
When I hear a Southern man say he was a
11 Union man," I know he is a traitor. Whee
I hear a Northern man say he was a South
ern man during the war, I know he is a trai
tor. But, when I hear a colored man say
he was a Union man. I believe him from my
heart. Whenever the telegraph announced
a Southern victory, the black man trembled ;
but whenever the tidings came of a Northern
victory we rejoiced, because we felt that we
were that much nearer freedom. To-day,
thank God, we enjoy the results of that free
dom. We stand before the world invested
with a political equality with the white man.
We can vote.
Hon. Edward Arthur [sotto voice.] You are
more than our equal, Nash, in one sense, be
cause we are disfranchised.
Thc Speaker. Yes, sir, and we are not go
ing to let the halls of Congress remain silent
until you are permitted to vote- It is the
men of your class, and your ability, who
recognize our wants, aud whom wc desire to
seo re invested with the power of doing good.
It is with the men of your class with whom
we want to vote on the great questions of the
day, and by whom wc wish to bc counseled
It is not our desire to bc a discordant cle
ment in the Community, or to'unite the poor
against the rich. We want to live together
in harmony-to ?0 to work and restore the
lost credit of the State. A? General Hampton
ba* said ,: our destinies depend upon each
other." The white man has land, the black
man bas labor, and labor is worth nothing
without capital. We must help to create
(bit capital by restoring confidence, and we
can only restore confidence by electing proper
men to lill our public offices.
There arc said to be sixty thousand colored
voters and forty thousand white voters in
South Carolina. Look what a power you
have for good or for evil ! But, fellow-citizens,
be sure you use that power with intelligence,
and to tho end that South Carolina, wirb
which your interests are all identified, may
enjoy the prosperity which it gives. >Vhen
citizens come forward and meet u; as gentle
men have done to day, we have no right to
doubt thu future. I look upon to day as our
fourth' of July. And if we do our duty, %c
shall prove ourselves worthy of the great
privilege with which we have been invested.
It is true, the majority of colored men may
not bc able to vote intelligently, but you will
be educated. In the four weeks preceding
the first election in this district, you will be
taught more about voting than the people ol
Ireland cr England ever did know. There
never wa< a people who have gained so much
as we have done. But a little while apo we
were slaves. Now we are treemen. It has
been declared that we shall have a voice in
public affairs. In these public affairs we must
unite with our white fellow-citizens. They
tell us that they have been disfranchised, yet
we tell tho North that we will never let the
halls of Congress be silen: until we remoVe
that disability. Can we afford to loose from
thc councils of the State our first men ? Can
we spare judges from the bench ? Can we
put fools or strangers in their position? No,
fellow-citizens, no! Gloomy would be that
day, indeed. Wc want ia charge of our in
terests only our best aud ablest men. And
then, with a strong pull, a long pull and a
pull altogether, up goes South Carolina,
MEETING or COLORED CITIZENS.-Thc
Charleston papers contain long reports of the
proceedings of a meeting of colored citizens
held in the Military Hall building, on Thurs
day even ng, and at which H. Judgo Moore
presided. The room was filled to overflowing.
A platform was adopted, after which there
was considerable speech-making. One of the
speakers, P. L. Cardcza, seconded tho resolu
tions, and warned the freedmen against the
seduction.? of tfieir former masters, who now
pretended to bc- their friends* He said that
the right of suffrage was only given to them
temporarily, and if they did not use it wisely,
their Northern friends, thc radicals, would
take it away as suddenly as they had given lt.
THE COLUMBIA MEETING.-Thc New York
Times, of Tuesday, in its comments on the
meeting held in'Columbia on Monday last says:
It seems strange to read that, among the
speakers who came to applaud and encourage
these neproes, were Gen. Wade Hampton,
Hon. Wilham F. DeSau>sure, formerly United
States Sciatcr, Hon. Wm. Talley, Edward
Arthur and James Gibbes, all eminent leading
men of the State. Two colored men of note
also made addresses, and the whole spirit cf
the meeting is represented to have been of
the most cordial good feeling. Such a fact,
goes a great way to explode tho studious mis
representations of Southern feeling, sent up
or inveuted here by extremists. That, in the
heart of South Carolina-a State in which
thc blacks are largely in the majority-one
of the foremost of the Confederate Generals,
and himself once the largest slaveholder in
the ceuntiy, should meet his former chattels
in this frauk and manly style, and so unreser
vedly accept the situation, isa fact to out
weigh volumes of hostile invective and mis
MARYLAND.-It seems that an attempt is to
be made to reconstruct Maryland, aud she
may be known ere long as District No. G. Mr.
Thomas, one of thc Representatives from
Maryland, is leading the ball, and on Monday
he introduDed thc following significant reso
lution, wh;ch was passed without debate :
Resol ccu', That the testimony taken by the
Judiciary Committee of the last House of
Representative*, in pursuance of instructions
of that II msc, concerning, to some extent,
public affairs in Maryland, and now in custo
dy of the Cleik of the 'House, bo committed
to thc Committee ?rn the Judiciary, with in
structions .0 complete the inquiries which the
last commiltec was instructed to make, and to
inquire whether the people of Maryland have
a State Government republican in form, and
such as Congress can, consistently with the
requiremet cs of the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, recognize and guarantee.
A MILITARY MASSACRI. IN MEXICO.-One
of the mast terrible tragedies connected with
the wars of modern times, has just transpired
in Mexico. By order of Escobedo, who signs
himself gcneral-in-chief of the army of the
Republic ?? Mexico, one huudred and twenty
three prisoners were brutally murdered in cold
blood. Th) Ranchero, a Mexican journal,
The order was executed on the 3d inst., at
7 o'cloc.': ii; the evening; or, rather tho exe
cution of one hundred and twenty-three pris
oners was f nished at that hour. One by one
the prisoners were shot, and ea? h bloody body
was left as it fell for the next victim in order
to look upo3. We are informed that but few
of the doomed victims faltered ; and when
marched oui for execution most of them sang
the Marselhiise hymn. We have been prom
ised the full particulars of this awful massacre,
and when received they will be laid before
the public in order to complete the black und
After the execution at San Jacinto, Gen.
Esc?benlo ordered a ball at San Luis Potosi,
in honor of thc victory achieved over Mira
mon. It was io have been tho grandest af
fair ever goilen up in rhat city. One hundred
ind fifty lalics were invited, who were of
course the :ton of the to-vn." When the
hour carno to commence the dance, the he
roes of tho San Jacinto massacre found that
but fifteen ladies had responded to tho invita

cited did a tend that night. From this it may

The Irrepressible Conflict.
On Sunday afternoon last, our village was the
scene of a fierce and irrepressible conflict The
holy day makes tho deed appear more unholy !
Four or five soldiers of tho Federal garrison be
came "bifurcated with hot shuts from u blue-ruin
decanter," and very wantonly disturbed Iho peace
of a colored family. Thcso soldiers, we under
stand, are of Ccltich origin. Their feet wore at
one time on their w.tive bog. They have a na
tional antipathy to reptiles and swear by St. Pat
rick. They arc devotedly attached to potajocs
and have an abiding faith in good whiskey. By
some moans, as wo have already insinuated, these
.?aid Ceilidh gentlemen an I a quantity of the said
good whiskey got inside of each other; and
straightway thc Celts were upon tho war-path.
As they wooded their devious way along our
Main Street, they ch ?need to approach the resi
dence ff an American citizen of African descent
-Phil Hill-a suod, honest, well meaning fellow.
Phil was u-jt at home ; he wa? " up town ;" per
haps pondering, in pensive mood, thc long-stand
ing but now thoroughly-avenged wrongs of his
nation. The Celts entered his domicile forcibly,
and spread terror and dismay omong tho females
of his family. Mrs. Phil crept forth and surrep
titiously despatched a messenger for Phil. The
untutored African rushed to thc rescue, and ex
cited to frenzy by thc base aggressions of the
Celts, pitched in upon thc latter with most valor
ous vim. It being Sunday, Phil's fi ?end.; were
lying round loose. They flew to arms. More
Celts arrived upon tho field of glory. 'Tis im
possible to describe the scene 1 A combat ensued
that promised a very serious termination. Thc
result had like to have boon thc same as in the
fight of the Kilkenny Cuts. It seemed probable
for ?uno time that nothing would be left but a
few mangled remains for thc coroner to hold in
But thc Africuns triumphed gloriously. One
Celt was out; another was shot, though not killed ;
while another was brought to the ground by un
unerring brick from thc vengeful bauds of Mrs.
Thc Commandant of thc Post arrived upon thc
scene, and speedily dispersed the combatants.
Phil was arrested and carried to headquarters,
but upon representations of his good character
being made to thc Commnridunt, and sufficient
m re ty given of his appearance when thc mat?r I
should be investigated, ho vms released.
Life focmen whom Phil thought worthy (?) or lils 1
?teal, we imagino they have had time, in tho
guard-house, to get thoroughly sober, and to re
flect maturely upon thc nature and results of " ir
repressible conflict*" in general.

The So-Called Supplemental Military
This Bill, thc finishing stroke to our military
subjection, thc last lick of tho Radical Congress
before its adjournment until'December, may bo
Tound in another column of to-day's paper. Tho
President vetoed it. Tho Radicals passed it im
mediately over his veto. It is now tho law. It
will bc seen that this bill authorizes tho military
;ommandors in thc several Districts to cause a
registration of all the voters in each State, not
[lisfrancbisod by thc original bill, on or before
tho first of September next. Thirty days after
this registration is completed, the military com
Diander is authorized aud required to order an
Election for numbers of a State Convention.
When this registration takos place, of course
tccry man not disfranchised should register
promptly. The commonest sense of solf preser
vation should urge him todo this. And why?
Because tbcro are ignorant men in tho South,
thcro aro falso men, thore aro designing men,
Lhere are treacherous man; and to sit quietly and
let matters drift into the bauds of any such would
be stupidly reckless.
In tho meantime, Gcnl. Sickles, our Military
Commander, has arrived in Charleston from Wash
ington; as yet, however, his Official Orders upon
taking command of thc two Carolinas, has not
been made public.
It is announced in advance by tho Charleston
papors that the civil government of South Caroli
na, if administered with energy and impartiality,
wiil not bc interfered with.
Do not Itun Crazy Over Cotton.
The subjoined article is from the Columbia
Phoenix. Wo admire and endorso it; and, as
exhorted by thc Phoenix, endeavor to keep tho
subject beforo our planters r.nd farmers :
"Why should the planters of the South raise
cotton, with a population starving around them,
to'supply tho factories of New England or foreign
markets ? The Government tax is heavy-nhout
rjiK'-lifth of the former prico of tho staple ; tho
proceeds must bo spent to buy bread and meat from
.ho Weit, and much of the money received is
spent on tho produedous of tho looms of New
England, enhanced, ns their real v.iluo is, by
high bounty tariffs and unjustifiable profits.
" Purely our people will seo tho folly of this
suicidal policy of keeping the mills of Lowell
running full time, when thousands at home'are
lacking bread. If the South did not supply the
cotton, that monster monopoly of cotton manu
factures in Nvw Engliiml, scoured and fo.?tcred by
unjust legislation against every other seivion of
thc country, would bo stricken down. Wa would
get chcapor goods from England and elsewhere,
while we would bo laying thc foundations of home
manufactures throughout the whole Roath. These
matters should be carefully considered, and thc
dictates of common sense, pruJoucc and patriot
ism prevail over old habits and prejudices. Let
cotton slide for one year at least, as a production
for export, and we have little doubt but t!ic result
will prore so clearly that the wants and interests
of,our section have been vastly benefited, and
that a new policy will bo inaugurated iu thc ag
ricultural of the Gult' States of thc South.
'.But, besides the necessity ul such a change ?n
general principles at this time, and Hie peculiar
circumstances in which the people of thc South
ure politically placed, there is still tho greater
incentive-tbo higher dut}--to raise bread for
the people. Another year of want mid suffering
will almost dcciL-ato tho Southern population,
mid they will only lit?."** to cmigrato to more
favurud sections of th? cou. try, or-starve We
trust that th".- matter will bc >. jutinually kept just
now befor : > ur planters and fa-mers by our con
temporaries of thc presi in evey S'.ae, county
ind district in tho South, BO tha. it thc diro re
sults v.hich must follow the old system should
come upsn us, the press will bc clear of any blame
in thc promises."
The goncral estimate of last year's cotton erip
was, we belierc, about a million and a half bales,
If thc South had m ido but half th is, asd had
consumed half of that in her own factories, she
would bc moro appreciated than she now is.
Things are ripening, and if thc South may bul
ICI// it, her situation financially and politically,
may yot bo endured. Eur months past, the pres.;
if the South has urgently advised our planter.
not tu repeal the unwise experiment of the pa.-l
year. And we too must entreat them, for theil
own sskes cn.I for the'sake of their on tra ged SPC
ti.-.n, to plant but half thc cotton thia year tho
pUmt. d taft. Wo say to thou), again, thal If the;
ralsc"batft balf million balcs7 Ihe.-c will bring then
as much money as a million, becaujo they wil
get double price for it. Then their plain path o
duty is first to plant as much land in corn, wheat
oats, potatoes, onions, and other articles of food a:
will last them for two years. Get one year ahem
m?t/nod. Hilve grasses and fruits and vegota
bles in abundance. The man who has an ?bun
dance of grain and hij and oats, noed never bin
meat from tho Northwest. Having these products
he will, ns surely ns tho sun risei and sets, hav<
hogs, cattle, horsos, mules, sheep and pnultrj*.
We buy and consume vast quantit?s of foot
which comes altogether from tho North and North
west. Much of this-very much of it-our rem
ple might thomielvei produce. Tao South ha;
been dependent long enough. Our peoplo shoulc
soo this and wake np. There sliould bo a g?nerai
rosolvc throughout the South, to raiso this year,
and forever in future, all the food necessary foi
our peoplo. To this end, it is evident that more
extensive grain crops must bo plumed than cvoi
before. Let the Southern people do this and wt
are safe. Wc can then defy tba m ilice of all
Radicaldom. Wo have thc soil and the climate.
Let us make u?o of tlum as sensible men. Lei
us first feed ourselves abundantly, and drive awav
want from every -door. Let that bo our jimt duty.
Then let tho balance of our labor bo given le
raising n moderato cotton crop. We need many
things which we can not supply from our own
region. Lotus raise cotton enough to purchase such
necessaries as wc must have and cannot ourselves
produce-such as sugar, coffoo, tea, woolens, icc ,
Sic. Let us also buy machinery to spin and weave
our cotton. A small crop will thus pay ti- more
than a large ono. And we shall set Sumner and
Stevens, and Sprague, the Rhode Idand Calico
Factory Senator, to thinking. Without cotton
this Union becomes II third rate power. Comm orce
has made it what it is ; and cotton has fed com
merce. Nothing hus so filled its sails us the
white lint gathered from the fields of thc South.
Cotton is a political as well as u financial lever.
Let us usc it as statesmen, riant a full, very full
crop of grains and roots, and sow an abuudanc:
of grass seeds. Raise cattle, and hogs, and sheep,
and horses, and mules. Work for your hume?
und your own peoplo this year; but plant not
near so much cotton. 'Twill bring New England
to her senses, nnd win for us justice.

On Saturday, tho 23d, the President returned
tho Supplemental Bill with his ohjections. The
Bill provides foran election in ten States for tho
puniofc of making constitutions; but all elec
tions, whilo tho original bill icmains in fore:,
como within its restrictions. Preliminary to elec
tions, conics registration, l'nrcgistered .citizens
cannot vote. Tho preliminary to-, registration is
a vague oath,- that tho ?pp! cant?is not disfran
ehised by participation in thc rebellion) which
requires that thc applicant for registration must
decido for himself. Tkero ii a fearful responsi
bility, for though the hill dor? not assign perjury,
nor fix a penalty for mi-talica swearing, he must
not forget that marshal la*T prevails, and that
tho applicant.is responsible io tho Military Cota
missions, without previous p-esentment by grand
juries, thc military commandos determining what
is an olfencj and prescribing the punishment.
Tho fourth section provides that tho military
commander shall appoint thc noonury Board),
of Registration, onch consisting of thrco loyal
persons who may be military officers or citizens
of the State, or strenger.?, oxercising important
functions and vested with unlimited discretion.
They decido questions and make returns. What
ever error or frauds they commit pass unques
tioned. Ey such measures ara conventions of
delegates to bc constituted. These delegates are
to speak for tho people ; con: mon justice requires
that they should have authority from tho people.
No convention so constituted will, in any senso,
represent the wishes cf tho people, for under all
thc embarrassing exceptions and uncertainty
which disfranchisement causes, it leaves out thc
great-body of tho people who may bo excluded
from thc polls. I do not deem it necessary to in
vestigate further the details cf the Bill. No con
sideration could induce him (thc President) to
approve suth on election law for any purpose,
especially for thc purpose of forming a Constitu
tion for a State. The President argues thc ques
tion at some length, illustrat.ng that the forma
tion of Republican Governments, according to
Congressional ideas, moy at well commence in
Ohio or Pennsylvania as Nor.h Carolina.
The President conclude? : I confidently believe
that tho time will come wh;n these States will
again occupy their true portions in the Union.
The harriers which now seem so obstinate must
yield to the forco of enlightened and just
public opinion sooner or later: unconstitutional
and oppressive legislation will bc effaced from the
?tntate books when this ?hal; huvc beon consum

The ladi'.'s-we trembling venture to mernie n
them-vt il I no doubt bc interested to hear some
thing concerning thc latest fashions for dressing

duced here about a year ago by Lucy Rushton,
the actress, but did not take very well at first.
. After n few months little girl: adopted it, and it
r ii now quito prevalent among full grown females.
To get Up II gmt ratc overflow, all that is nece*:a

"Another stylo that threatens to boromoalarm
ingly popnlnr, li? the comet. This consists of ur
enormous''higuo* on tho top of the head, and II
tail of frizzled hair depending from it and stream
ing over -'n-; shoulder. A few specimens of thc
comet hove been on Broadway, They were at
tractive. Young ladies with red hair (thc fash
ionable color) eau get up u very effective comet.
1 Light auburn does very well, hut is not quite bril
liant enough. Brown or black won't do at all.
Nobody cwr saw a brown or Hack comet."
There! Take your choice. "Which shall it bo?
J " OvorMow" or " Comet ?" It seems however that
I the black and brown heads must not undertake
tho " Comet." The red and ll ixen heads have the
' advantage; for fashion permit" them either to
flameas " Comets"orsurgeas -'Overflows.*' Now,
as for our part, we like the "Overflow" scheme.
Yery thin hair, if yon "give-it a thorough frizzle
an 1 let it fly," will make a beautiful " Overflow ;"
' whilo very thick hair, when sc treated, will make
a deluge equal to that which has taken place late
ly in Tennessee. And then another advantage
of thc * Overflow" must be its immunity from
" ij rt i/o ri?ei" or " jHtliiuli" jr "nil?.'' A? WO
write tho last word, wc shriek with horror and
become senseless ! But an article in another col
umn, headed " Bugs and Humbugs" will explain
what wo menu by " gregarine?" and " pcdiculi.''
Of course we would not trend upon such ground
if it bad not been well trodden before !
But what does it matter if lhere are "grcga
l ines" in tho dead hair which composes the chig
non OT waterfall ? If fashion demands it, even
this must be tolerated. Who does not remember
the speech of the famous French belle in Bul
wer'B " Pelham ?" She was to go to a gratid ball
on a certain evening, but cn tile morning of the
very day a tcrriblo eruption sppearcil upon her
beautiful face. In despair thc sent for a physi
cian of gre it thill, and said t>. bira : " Cure me
hy night, and narao your price." The physician
assured her that he eoujd cure tho eruption radi
cally if she would Eiibmit td a certain tro.iMneut
for a few d ivs ; and that ho could abo drive in
tho eruption suddenly and have her ready for the
ball : but that tho latter courso would be ex
tremely dangerous-that ten tc< ono it would cost
her her life. She replied : " Proceed immediate
ly, lluvo mo ready for tho ba.l. lTAoi i? death
to an eruption t" Jle proccoJcd witb fcur and
trembling: and (we regret to say) the beauty
lived, and shone ns usual ot tho ball.
And what does it matter about theso "grtga
rinc* !" If fashion says they mist bc nurtured,
so it will bo.
Tako our ndvico then and adopt the " Overflow ;"
it is pretty, and graceful, and clean, "Give ita
thorough frizzle and let it fly."
