Terrible Disaster at Sea.
NEW YOHK, Aug. 31.-The Nettie
Cashing, off and from C hamaston, Maine,
for New York", arrived at New London
yesterday, and stated she was ruu into by
the propeller Metis, of the Providence and
New "iovK line, and lost her bow spirit
and head gear, knigkthead, and all lore
mast gear. He'sang out to the captain of
the steamer to "stand by him, as he
thought he was sinking," but the steamer
went on her course. After clearing the
wreck he made for New London, but could
not make it, and came to anchoret' Uosher
Reef, west of New London light. At thc
time'of the collision it was blowing a gale
from southeast, and was thick and raining.
He was steaming west bv south, through
the race with little Guli Island five miles
distant, nearing west by south.
The following is another account: To
wards midnight it blew nearly a gale,
while pitchy darkness prevailed. Tho
passengers had long since retired to red,
and with the exception that thc vessel was
rolling some, owing to 'the toughness of
the sea, nothing occurred to mar the
progress of the trip. Shortly after three
o'clock a schooner hove in sight, about
four miles west southwest of "Watch Hill
light, and not more than five miles from
the shore. It was at this time raining
hard, and. as appears, the weather was
somewhat thick. Suddenly and without
a word, without a sound of warning, the
schooner, heavily laden with lime, ran
into the steamer, forty feet abaft the stern,
on the port side, and squared, away on her
" coupe." A deep dull thud was felt all
over the steamer. Men and worsen were
aroused from slumber, and some, less
frightened than the MM, rushed on deok
h???'drsteed, and made for the pilot abuse
to learn the cause of what seemed 9 col
lision. The captain had already mane in
quiries from the engineer, and the cheer
ing news of "all right" at once flayed
the alarm of thc terror-stricken crowd;
some returned to their berths, out others,
not satisfied with the announcement, or
* perhaps, uneasy as to the result , remained
on the hurricane deck. Fifteen minutes
later and the death knell went ringing
through the vessel. The Metis was leak"
ing badly, and the news spread like vild
fiie. The staze rooms were thrown open
and the passengers scrambled tb the upper
deck to be .further off from the water. It
was a fearful scene. The deck bands-rush

Capt. Enr?en and the officers of the ves

ness. In compliance with orders, alljiands
were provided with life preservers.
At length thc deck upon which stood
the terrified poop!.- parted from the hull,
owing doubtless to the great pressure ol
the cotton bul-s, and in a few moments
t ie Metis smile tb rise no more, leaving
tie floating deck, with its huddled crowd,
to the mercy of the waves.
The collision had taken place at exactly
twenty minutes to four o clock, and about
three quarters of an hour elapsed from
that time io the complete' separation ol
the deck from the heil of the .steamer.
? It is impossible to give any idea of what
ensued. Bewildered #and shuddering a:

? THE TRUE REPUBLICAN?
The Plea of the Virtuous Bolters.
To the People of South Carolina :
On the 16th day of October next, yon

who shall fill the various offices in the
State government for the next official
The condition of the afinirs of the State
at this time causes the gravest concern and
most serions anxiety in the minds of all
good citizens. Taxation unprecedented in
amount in the history of this State weighs
upon the people. No man but feels the
burden ; but however and by whatever
channels thc faxes roach the treasury, they
come finally, in great part, from those who
till the soil, in th-> form ol' reduced wages,
?nd thc increased cost of food, clothing
aad other necessary expenses of a com
fortable existence. " Th'e hard hand of toil
largely pays the expenses of the -State,
though the money may be deposited in th?
treasury by tho?e who* own thc capital and
the land." Let no man flatter himself,
therefore that his poverty renders this
subject of taxation one of indifference to
Besides the Vast sums which have been
drawn from the people by direct taxation,
our miers have been heaping other burdens
upon us and our posterity, by enormous,
and in many cases fraudulent issues of
bonds, the very interest of which is a sum
so large that it seems impossible to pay* it.
Concealment of the real state of our affairs
has been practiced to a cri annal extent ; re
port after report, statement after statement,
has been trade by the financial officers of the
State, making tulse exhibits of our public
.lebt : and it was only when an outraged pub
lie opinion demanded and compelled an in
vestigation, that our real situation was
developed, and wai found to justify the
v/orst apprehensions which had been felt.
The public mind is too familiar with
riic facts to retpure more to' be said con
cerning tho bond frauds : but it is worth
while to consider here the question, what
has become of the money so lavishly
poured into tho treasury ? To what objects
nave we seen it appropriated hy those
who, under the law, are appointed to dis
burse it ? Have the rights of person and
property, which is the special function of
good government to guard, been secured?
Have the children, of the people been fur
nished with the means ot that education
which alone can fit ihem worthily to per
f >rm the dutj?s oi citizenship ? Have the
lumane institutions in charge of the State
been cared for ? Have the resources of
the State been developed, its industries
fostered, its present and future welfare
provided for with reasonable prudence ?
The answers to these questions are in
the mouths of all the people. We are
ashamed to he compelled to confess that
he State Government has failed to pro
cch the citizens, not only in the enjoyment
>f those rights and privileges intended to
>e secured by the providions of the State
md national constitutions, but even in
those more limited rights which no re
spectable civilized government on earth
illowa to be violated in the persons of 'ts
?subjects ; and it has been the strong arm
if the Federal Government which has re
?ased thousands of men. women "and
children from 'a terror with which they
?nid not fail to be filled by countless out
rages' perpetrated upon their friends, rela
tives and neighbors by conspirators, whose

Public money has been squandered for

ses of some brunches of the government
iiave been so enormously increased tis
astonish all who'are not familiar with the
character of many of those who fiji irupor
taut positions in the State Government.
"Pay certificates," drawn by the speak
er of tLc House of Repr?sentatives, pur
porting to be for expenses of the late
se*siou, ro th amount of over ?1,000,000
nave already appeared at the treasury and
been paid i?rexchanged for thc notes ol'
the treasurer, and it ?s estimated by those
in.a position to judge wisely thatS^5Cf,000
in "pay certiiicatcs" is still alloat in the
community, to be presented whenever
there is any probability of their being al
lowed. This will make the expenses of a
single session of the General Assembly
vcr 81,250,000, oo more than 400 'per
cent, of the sum which was formerly con
st lered sufficient to pay them.
. Enormous sums have been lavished in
?..Mended support of an ''armed force,'
which is notoriously non-existent.
The most corrupt practices have obtain
'.d.in the making of contracts by State
officials. The contract with the Roberts
and other anns companies of New York
.inder which there was drawn from the
.State treasury over $200,000. while said

?s a type of the manner in which the State
treasury bas been depleted. The public

In thia condition of affairs, was it th.
duty of the Republican party? The?
wrongs e in t?o way the result of the il
toon of its principles. They arise from the
greed, and selfishness, and corruption <>.
those, who have stolen the garb of Repub
lican1 ism to'cioak their evirdeeds, and who
should bc ca^t ont of the company of hon
est Republicans and honest men as having
degraded their nigh calling.
Our plain duty points lo this; our ob
vious interests demand this; the interests
of party demand it; the interests of the
State demand it: a decent regard for the
opinion of mankind demands it. We
must put forward for official position those
and those only* who are known as upright,
true and unstained men, whose Republi
canism is as undoubted as their integrity
and their capacity to perform the functions
of the offices for which they are nomina
ted. Within the lines of the Republican
party our work lies. There are honeBt
hearts and wise heads enough in that par
ty tc do our work. Every good citizen,
w'.'tatever bis party affiliations may have
been, c^ves it to hunself to work to purify
and regenerate our^te Government; but
the work especially be?2^ to us* We
cannot abandon it to our politica' ;ad?er" ?
With this necessity upon us; in an
emergency more exigent than has existed i ?
in the history of our party in South -Caro
lina ; with the eyes of the National Re
publican party upon us, and expecting us
to rise to the demands of tho occasion, like
honest men, the convention now in session
in this city has placed in nomination, as a.
candidate for Governor, the one man, whose
official acts have brought upon the State,
and the positions he has held, more dis
grace than has attached to any other offi
cer of the State Government.
Mr. F. J. Moses. Jr., was the person
\yho, as adjutant and inspector-general,
made the contract with the Roberts Arms
Company. We do not know that he re
ceived any part of the $114,000 which
disappeared in its transit from the office
of the financial agent of tho State of South,
Carolina, in New York, to the office of the
Roberts Arms Company; but wc do know
thatjt disappeared. The financial agent's
books show that it was paid ; the arms
company's books show thal they did not
Mr. P. J. Moses, Jr., was the person
who, as speaker of thc House of Repre
sentatives, flooded the Slate with a show
er of " pay certif?cales,'' and swelled the
expenses of thatJlouse, tor a single ses
sion, from $145,000, (the highest .possible
figure to which thev could amount legiti
mately, and this ia based ou most extrava
gant calculations,) to quite, or over a mill
ion dollars. And this. pa1 jable violation
of law, this direct filching from the treasu
ry, is neither denied by him nor his friends,
but is excused on the ground that he dis
posed of a large amount o? these certifi
cates in favor of the poor people who fled
from the persecutions of the Ku Klux
Klan. Was candidate. ever before driven
to straits like thi8 ? A fake certificate, a
fraudulent and unlawful draft of public
monov from the public treasury acknowl
edged", and thc act defended on tho ground
that the money was disposed'of in chari
ty! .Yet even this injaraoas excuse is
wanting, when we know that not one per
cent, of "these unlawfully issued certificates
was thus disposed of, and when \ye daily
observe the style of living this candidate
holds-a style befitting a profligate mill
ionaire, but impossible to an honest man,
with the legitimate income of a speaker
of the House and an adjutant and inspec
tor-general. Wc do not "attempt to ex
plaip the entry of $11,000 against the
" armed force" appropriation, paid to Mr.
F. J. Moses. Jr^ but the known character*
of the speaker of thc House, and his ca
reer in that office, awaken a suspicion very
well defined, which he has not only tailed
to clear up, but has allowed thc matter to
O'o unexplained, though for many days it
has been commented on by the newspa
pers, and though it would seem to be all
important that he should explain it to
those whose suffrages he was soliciting.
We are straight Republicans: none will,
go farther than we in any path of duty
or honor to serve the^ interests of the Re
publican party. The' cause of thc late
Republican party is dear, unspeakably
dear, to us ; its principle of the equality
of ail men before the law is that particu
lar je wei which outshines, with us, every
brilliant" in its casket. But honesty in of
fice, capacity in administration, fidelity Co
public trusts, arc principles which cannot
be ignored.by true Republicans ; and we
einnor endorse the action of a convention
which ijrnored thurn ail in its selection of
a candi late for thc high"-: Slate oft! .
however "'regular" that convention may
be. We have, therefore, joined in a move
ment for the nomination of an indepen

taming the names of men whose fidelity

of thc nomination or Grant and wilson,
and of the great measures of the nanon
Republican party which has placed then
in nomination, while they add to ihe?i
character for integrity, superior capacity
and ardent patriotism.
We appeal lo thc voters of the Stat"
of South Carolina to support them, know

" Ceinc Down Herc. ?>u J?lack Devil,
ami Let mc Punch Voul"
On Wednesday evening, the 28th Au
gust, tho Holters held a big Ratification
Meeting in Charleston ; and the account
of tho said mooting by tho Courier, al
though calcnlatcil 1> excite still more
ineffable contempt for Republicanism in.
South Carolin;?, is yet intensely amusing.
The Bortors, of course, all belong to thc
Bowen faction; and thc Maclfoy (betlan,
backers of Moses, swore io break np
their gathering in a row. But ibis time
thc Uowenites wcro too smart for.thom.
They brought over from thc Sea Island a
regiment of dusky tillers of the sob. ali
sturdy adherents of Bowen, and arranged
them in solid phalanx around the sjK-ak
or's stand, thus frightening the Mackoy
itca from going thc length of their in
structions and dispersing the meeting.
The latter, however, established a whis
key stand in thc immediate neighbor
hood, and under tbeiuiluenceof frequent;
potations of tangle-foot, kept up such a
running tiro of interrogatories and in
terruptions as turned thc whole aflair
into ridicule, contempt and failure Tom-?
lb ison, Corbin, Whipper, Gaillard, Saw
yer ?nd Tim Hurley were the speakers.
Tho High Priest, Orr, was not present.
Each was received with a rumpus ol
hoots, yells and vulgarity. Two or three
had to relinquish the Attempt in dispair.
The constant interrogatories, jeers and
ejaculations were at once coarse, violent
and amusing. Cyrus Gaillard, a negro,
was received with cries, of " Coiue down,
you black sucker, and sb^t your d-d
mouf!" "Come down herc, you black
devil, and let iiie,pnnch you !" To which'
Mr. Gaillard would reply, "Kf you
dou't want to hear- me,,/?/, and don't
loaf bout befe no longer." The white
speakers were all violently insultod ;
and the facetious Tim Hurley was thc
only ono who could hold bis ground.
Tim npon being asked, "How abou:
buying th.c Legislature?" answorci,
"Shut up, I don't want to buy you, bo
cause there is sonic meat that stinks so
bad that oven / don't want to buy it !"
Tim is right. Stink is the right word.
They all stink fearfully-both factions,
tho Moses-Cardoza-Crews Ring as well
as the ?rr-Tomlinsoh-Bowen Bolt.
Swung ;nto Eternity upon the Hang
The lovers of thc horrible inane! about
Columbia were gratified on Friday last
bj' the" fearful spectacle of two human
beings swung into eternity 'upon 'thc
icuigui?tf's *r?.pe-two negro1 men, Bill
LIIC%? and' Nod Harris. Each ono ol'
beau negroes was guilty of a brutal and
fiendish murder, thc victim in each case
having been a weak, aged, and inoffen
sive-white man. This double execution

viigust, but was postponed by Gm\ ?

-until tho ?Oth. .
Tho execution took placo in the ya? a
.f tho Jail. Nono entered save such
had tickets, and, even at-thia, the yarri
was densely thronged. An immense::
crowd outside had tobe kept back ami
held in check by the police Thc priso
ners were attended by a colored preach , i
named Berkeley. Lucas made no allu
sion to his crime, and expressed thc
great comfort he had received from reli
gion. Harris stoutly denied his guilt,
avowing that bo was as innocent ?is

For tho Advertiser.
Pine Hitisc atid Nhic'ty-Six Railroad.
Mn. EPTTOK,-I agr?e with your Rail
rqad correspondent in your issue of the
22d, that nearly every land-holder in this
County has a large surplus upon which
he is paying almost ruinous taxes, and
that every land-holder along the proposed
line of Railroad could, with a oertainty
of realizing profit^, subscribe one-fourth
of said real estate to a road, provided the
larfd is assessed at two-thirds ofits value
before the road has an existence.
It is plain to the understanding that
the land would bo increasod in value
from fifty to one hundred per cent, thus
paying, by increased value, more than
the subscription ; and your correspondent
is right when he says that tito building
of a road, upon the plan proposed, would*
bo a moncy-makibg business to each
subscriber, particularly as tho terms of
subscription shall be, that each subscri
ber shall have the' privilege of redeem
ing his land, at assessed value, when'the
bonds issued upon the basis of these
lands become duo. And further, as your
correspondent says, thore wi'l be no in?
torruption to the cultivation of these
lands until the bonds mature. Tn fact,
if the plan is examined carefully it will
be found that a Road can be built and*
commence operations as a road, without
one dollar of indebtedness,-a thing that
bas not happened herotoforo in ?ny en
terprise of the kind.
A road from Pine House Depot to, say
Ninety-Six, without a dollar's of indebt
edness when finished, would be a novel
thing, but it can bo made a real i t}'. If]
such is tho fact, and it can bo domonstra
tod that thore is moro idle real estate
along thc lino from Pine Uouse to Nine
ty-Six than would build two narrow
gauge roads, thou lot it be done.
lint. Mr. Editor, your correspondent
bas made this mistake, in my opinion,
?lo bas attempted to cover too ranch
. round, at once, tb start a successful en
s-i'rprise. It is true that tho Charleroi
lits? unibinieeH tho territory from Al
!:. iii SjmrtanbuJ?r, but there is nu nc
.br ?di this, but in thc distant fu
"-.lld facilities; Sps'mn??rg" will hav<
i- S .-/U ns iii*?' Air Line is completed
besides, we cia. bc in conimunicatioi
wita .Spa1.".nibing by our proposed lin
from Pbju ?lou-v. lo Ninety-Six, via
Greenville, which wil bo sufficient at
present. And wo would be in com mu
ideation with Aiken, and to expend
??lOAjli i; unnecessarily, in thc infancy ot
.ai enterprise,, would bo useless. .Thc
<aine idea also holds as regards Spurlun
Tho cnterpriscis practicable at present
In tho limits prescribed, viz: Pine House
to Ninety-Six-iDtatall doubting the final
utility and practicability of building the
entire Chartered lino.
Now, let ns wo how this would work
In the first place Augusta would opon
her eyes, and perhaps ber purse. Say
riie present tormhus of thc road is nt
Xincly-Six. Whai a surrounding conn
. -y of tho upper pa'tion of Newberry, of
the adjoining porti-n of Laurens, nearly
half of Abbeville, and all of Edgeflold,
.'rom which to attact trade Boes Any
..no think a sane a'ty would not lend n
uelpillg hand, whthcr or not thc road
tinnily passed to Jken? Tho up-eoun- J
try produce is tocDio down any hov.', and 1
it mil bu in contiuuication with two
markets, Charlcsta and Augusta; and
it would not take arreat augur to foretell
in this case. Here the conclusion is
that aid from Augsta would be certain.
. The writer has inversed with many
persons in thc uppr portion of Ncwbcr- 1
ry, and thc Saludando ol' Laurens, and
they all say that Railroad from Au
gusta to Ninety-Si v?ould be quite .suffi
cient for Ahem at jesent. We of lodge-1 u
field all know wh what tenacity the
people of Lauron;and Newberry bold
on lo Augusta. IN reasonable therefore,
co snpppso thatlargo subscriptions,
either in mon ev olands, would be forth-1 tl
coining, and tin .subscription in Use
Ninety-Six portli of Abbeville would
bo largo certain!;
Under the circustanees then I believe
we aught to raisithc stock within tho
joints indicated.Call the, stockholders
ogethcr and conDl that portion of the
road at present, id wait for futuro dc- u\
vclopments, sui as the Blue 'Ridge ni
Road &e By tk road, we will bo' in
communication Ith the Air Line, and 0j
perhaps at someituro day Cincinnati!
The road horedicated is an absolute | ?l
present nocossitj-the other portions of
the Chartered lira road is not a present?
necessity. Thefore let us with one w
mind and stroiii, and purse, pursue kl
tho matter to itsnal completion. We jP?!
will then have a?ad, if built npon Um
basis indicated, xhout a mortgage upon
iL-a paying roa-at leiust its expenses..

Railroad Meeting at Calliham's Church.
In accordance with apreviousannounce- '
mem^jnade at a former meeting, and in
thc ijigersjof the jj?oining Counties, a
meeting was heldWthe 26th ult., at Cog
lihaafs Chlir.ch,, in the D^jafk Coiner, '.ih
behoof <he Greenwood anc^'Augult/Bi
Rail &a?y* " j| j?
A'^n^?nary nifleting^cjf^ citia^
had ripen called on the Wat, at wh'it?h
Mr. J. D. Talbert was elected to preside
on the 29th, and Dr. T. fe Jennings to
net as Secretary.
On thc ila>;;appointed thc neighboring
country turned oui-tnma/tsc. ah rt tf?ero
were a goodly number of persons pres
ent from arti.sUw$ ta/ftkidinf rr.anyfrom
the adjoining SJatt of Georgia.
M?, IWoerfctook* tiio?bair?anfl. after
calling the meeting tq order, said that ho
felt the responsibility resting upon him,
and would have dpsir^d that another,
older and more experienced than, h?,
should have been selected to preside over1
so important a meeting, though none
could have been found who had taken,
and would continue to take;- greater in
terest in its ooject than he. He again re
minded them, in glowing terms, of the
innumerable heneftts th?t would accrue
to them upori 'the 'construction of the
Road, and pointed ?ut to them their mel
ancholy ftite should their scheme fail, or
be too long delayed. He urged them,
then, iritforcible terms, to come forward
like men that appr<f|ated their true in
terests, and subscribe liberally to the
commendable*Vork in view. ?
The Chairman then introduced Dr. W.
D. Jennimgs as the first speaker of tho
day. The Doctor's remarks were brief,,
but pointed. Ho said, that, although his
present placet of residence was Edge field
.VTillage, yet ho still lived ip thc Dark,
t?or?or,'that his heart was with them in
their endeavors, and l\e luid great faith
in their ultimate success. Ho had the
tact to address a considerable portion bf
his remarks to the ladies, a large number
of whom were present, appreciating as
ho did their influence in ihisj|as well as*
all other terrestrial undertakings. His
speech commanded the -attention of tho
assembly, and was?recelved with tile ap
probation, that whatever comes from
him, alwa/s is, in his native country.
Gen. P. H., Bradley^ from Abbeville,,
who'has been a zealohs laborer in behalf
of the Road from tho inception of tho '
design, was next introduced. In hisv
usual calm and dignified style, he began '
one of thc most practical Railroad, speech
es that it was ever the good fottune of
any audience to near. Ho made no at-;
tempt at ornateness,' but spoke a?* to men?
whom he thought were fn enrne^it. '
Ile showed then tho favorable auspices
undofe which the enterprise had been
commented ; thal fhero was little or no
opposition, and i tiru proceeded toansvvr
most completely what lew objections hud
bfferi raised ; hoc nvincAdthosowhode
dined io aid i?, iKi'i?tjfec they '.vere unable,
that tliey wore aijic ; tlicsc wl>o.objeeted
that it wu* a. short linc, and vdould not
pay dividends, that lt would nbs rcinai?
? short iino, and in any event would pay
them ; those wno objected because it
would take trade (Mt of the S?ate, that
that was a cogent reason why they should
build it. He showed them that it would
open a qujek communication with Au-]
gusta, which was one of the best markets
In the world, and rapidly becoming au
important manufacturing town. Gen.
Bradley then went into calculation, ex
hibiting the cost of grading, timbering
and ironing pur mile ; aiid he put down
the entire cost of the.' Road from Green
wood}! lo where it^?ases tbe'River, at
thc reasonable siim of j5709,$00. He
closed bis remarks with some words to
the colored pqwons fchu were present,
ieaaingTUGn?To see nKnwiso manviraj
to their interest to have tho road, and
urging them to render whatever assis
tance they could. Tii?> audience gave thc
speaker their undivided attention, and
showed by the eagerness with which
they received his information, that they
had not met for holiday purposes alone.
Charles Wright, from Born's' Mines;
was then introduced by thc Chairman,
and followed itt tile footsteps of the pre
ceding speaker, in cnumeratingthe bone
tits to bo reaped from a Railroad, and
urged them to build it.
Afi3r ho had concluded, dinner was
announced,-, and the crowd repaired to
the table,.whore they wore in tli? enjoy
ment of a superb barbecue, when au nh
tiined cloud mada its appearance, and
thc rain-soon began to fall in torrents,
ami continued so to do, with brief inter
vals, until latc in thc afternoon. It Was
i great disappointment to all parties, as
.hero were several gentlemen present to
uldress them in behalf of ibo Road
In spite, however, ol' the abrupt teni) i
lation of tlic proceedings, the books
.vero opened, and the subsoriptiotiH were
?boral aud gratifying to thc friends'of
As long as the meeting continued, .it
vas conducted with thc utmost harmony
