Indignation Meeting in Columbia.
There was a large and enthusiastic
meeting lu Columbia, on Wednesday
evening, the 19th, at tho State House, in
the Hal! of thc ouse of Representativos,
in sympathy with Cuba, and in favor of ?
avenging the insult given to the Ameri
can dag in the cold blooded butchery of |
American citizens taken on board of the
Virginals by the Spaniards.
Speeches wera made by United States
Senator Robertson, Representative Elli
ott, Judge T. J. Mackey and other promi
uout gentlemen, all of them expressing
the strongest sympathy with Cuba.
Amongst the speakers were several prom
inent democrats, sud with one accord
they echoed the sentiment that Cuba

Under motion to appoint a committee

The committee reported at the Thurs

large as the previous one and just as en
thusiastic. Indeed, at this meeting the
hall was immensely packed and the en
thusiasm of the people running very
high, the hearts of all present being in
the work before them.
Tba resolutions were adopted amid
much enthusiasm. They read as follow.- *
Whereas, the American steamer Vir
ginios, sailing under the flag of the Uni
ted States, with a regular clearance from
the American Consul at Kingston, Ja
maica, was recently seized in mid ocean,
upon the common highway of nations,
by the commander of a Spanish vessel
of war, who, alter hauling down her ting,
carried her into the Spanish port of San
tiago de Cuba, where her officers and
crew, embracing many American citi
zens, were, without lawful trial, shot to
death with musketry by Spanish ma
rines acting under the orders of officers
of the army of Spain ; and whereas such
seizure was violative of the public law of j
nations and dishonoring to the American
dag; therefore be it
Resolved, That we appeal wi til con fi
dence to the national administration and
the Congress of the United States to se
cure ample redress for this great and un
paralleled wrong inflicted upon the honor I
of our great Republic in the persons of I
its slaughtered citizens and through the
bold* and ignominious violation of the
sanctity of its flag.
Resolved, That th? a trage here named
is but the last of a i....g series'] nil ie ted by
the government of Spain upon American
citizens, and that the time has come for
this free Republic to teach that red-hand
ed slavemaster of tho Continent that
wherever the American nag flies there
every American citizen may stand pro
tected by an inviolate safeguard.
Resolved, That we sympathize as free
Americans with the Cubana who are now
struggling to free themselves from the
galling thraldom of the Spanish yoke,
and we deem that the true American
policy which shall most speedily secure
tor the islaud of Cuba a place among the
nations as a free and independent State,
and thus strike down the last stronghold
of chattel slaves on the American con
Resolved, That a copy of these resolu

Rumors from Columbia.
A traveling correspondent imparts the
following information to the- Augusta
It is well known in Columbia that reso
lutions of impeachment against F. J.
.Moses, Jr, Governor, etc., have been
drawn up and will be introduced at an
carly day. But the best item of all,
which has not yet seen the light, was
the difficulty between Dr. Neagle, ex
Comptroller-General, and the Governor
of South Carolina Neagle bad endorsed
for Moses, and when the note in the Car
olina National Bank became due, he pre
sented a pistol to his Certiticatecy's heart
and demanded payment. Mrs. Moses
settled the difficulty by making a trans
fer of her furniture to said bank, and the
matter was dropped.

In the House, on Thursday, the 13th,
our sable representative, Mills, intro

NEW YORK, November 21.-A.. Herald
pecial dated Madrid 20 th, says : The sil

ng exists between Sickles and the Spanish
tebinct. On th?' arrival i?f the new? nf
he capture of the Virginius, President
'astelar, at the United States Legation,
ixpressed regret'and ordered^, suspension
>f the sentence. When Secretary Fish
elegraphed the news of the execution,
Jen. Sickles sent a note, at 2 o'clock in the
norning, demanding a stay ot' procced
n?S The Foreign Secreten* answered;
ruestioning the aecuntev of thV informa
tion, and intimated that Sickles' action
arsis* nut authorized. Thereupon Sicklos,
II the uaine of the United States, address
id a formal protest against the inhuman
jutcheries and insult to the United States ;
ind again demanded that Sp.-.in should
mforc? obedience to orders in Cuba, and
nsisted on the rights of Americans to trial
under the treaty of 1796- He com plained
that the American Consulate at Santiago,
tras pievented using the telegraph to
Washington. The Spanish Secretary an
iwered that the matter was wholly ? mu
nicipal aflkir between Spain and the Vir
ginus' pirates, Spain could not tolerate
my interference. The interview ended by
Lieu. Sickles demauding that Spain should
enforce the order nf the Cabinet to Cuba
for suspensions of executions. The Span
ish Minister of Foreign Affairs haughtily
declined to permit Gen. Sickles to discuss
the municipal affairs.of Cuba. The in
terview terminated angrily, Sickles saying
he would hold no more personal only offi
cial relations with the Minister. Public
feeling ruins high. The Spaniards blame
United States for Cuban insurrection, and
say they will welcome war. Minister
Sickles does not see how war ean ' avoid
ed as Spain will concede nothing and
Sublic opinion will prevent President
a8telar from making any concessions. Ht
says there's no use in the United States
trifling any more on the subject, Spanish
stubbornness making concessions impossi
ble. The extreme Republicans favor the
views of the United States in the affair.
NEW YORK, November 21.-The offi
cers of the City of New York give the
names of the passengers seized : Mi*?. Dom
itolade Monte, a wilow and her child;
Rycardso Sancis and his entire family
consisting of his wife and three children
and Donna Cataleua Paies, Nothing sos
picious was found in the clothing of the
women or children. All were discharged
except Sancis. Over two hundred per
sons were implicated by captured corres
?ondence. No executions when the New
received by the Secretary of State are con
firmatory in part of the special telegrams
from Madrid, in regard to the demonstra
tions against Minister Sickles, though the
Secretary is of the opinion that the spe
cials are somewhat exagg. juted. The mob
which collected in front of the American
Legation was promptly dispersed by the
Government, and there is no doubt here
in oftic.al circles but that the authorities at
Madrid are fully capable of preventing
any outbreak. The position of Minister
Sickles is very uncomfbi table, but it is not
believed that any violence will be offered,
as Mrs. Sickles telegraphs that the Span
uh officials are equal to the emergency.
Minister Sickles is hourly in communica
tion with the State Department, and his
dispatches indicate the existence of a very
s rong feeling against the United States
W?SHINGT' >T, November 21.-The city

Treasury Department, navigation division,
finds no reason to believe that any irregu

Secretary of State by the Secretary of the
Treasury, and received the attention of
the Cabinet to-day. Copies of all papers
The session of the Cabinet opened ear
lier than usual, and continued until 4
o'clock-all the Secretaries present. It
was-the largest session during Grant'? ad
ministration.* Subsequently Fish and
Robeson had a conference. The whole
time of the session was occupied with the
Virginals matter and attending complica
tions. Members are dumb regarding de
tails of proposed action, lue feeling
which urged the attack upon the American
Legation was characterized' as brutal and
unreasonable. It really seemed that no
reasonable ministry could stand at Mad

navai recruiting office ordered to be opened
at New Orleans.
It is still unlikely that other than pre
cautionary measures will be taken until
Congress acts. While the President seems
to be in accord with the indignant feel
ings of the people, he will do nothing to
place thc country in a false position before
the world. A leading Senator, who had a
conversation with the President to-day,
has no doubt that when Congress meets
the public will be satisfied that prudence,
combined with a due reeard to our na
tional honor, has been observed by the
Executive Department of the Government.

Death of Hon. S. R. Mallory.
The telegraph informs us of the death
of the Hon. Stephen R. Mallory, at Pen
sacola, Fla., on Wednesday, the 12th. He
will be remembered as the Secretary of |
the Confederate Navy, and as a devoted
patriot to the Lost Cause." Mr. Mallo
ry was an amiable man, and a favorite
with his friends, all of whom will mourn
fully regret to learn of his death If we
remember correctly, Mr. Mallory had
been in bad health for some time. " Peace
to his memory."
A Corrupt Political Leader Overtaken.
The famous Tammany chieftain, Wm.
M.Tweed, alias Boss Tweed, of New
York, whose trial, upon an indictment
of 204 counts, has been going ou for some
time past, was found guilty on the 19th
inst, and soon thereafter sentenced to
twelve years in the county prison and a
fine of $12.000. The accusations against
him were of all manner of fraud, steal
ing and corruption-political, private and
social. This was his second trial. On
his first he was acquitted. Now he is
found guilty of all the 204 counts. Tweed
has been a leading Democrat in New
York, and as a prominent and powerful
official of the Democratic Tammany So
ciety, proved himself a monster of un
scrupulous corruption. Let them be
Democratic or Radical, the salvation of |
the country demands the unmasking and
punishment of all such men as Tweed.
His jnstsentence may detcrother thieves.
Thc N, V. Herald Wants Cuba.
The New York Herald, in an article
on the Spanish butchery of the Virginius
prisoners, says :
We confess to some apprehension of a
timid, hesitating policy on. the part of |
our government. We fear that the plume
which will decorate the bonnet of the
administration will be the white feather
of the diplomat of strong words and
weak heart The Secretary of State beats
about for apologies for Spain, and Spain
is ready, it is said, to surfeit us with
apologies for the outrages and murders
she could not check in the past and can
not prevent in the future. We have even,
heard tho degrading bmtfrom "Washing'-'
ton that if the Virginius was captured in
English waters it w'-ld be England's
quarrel and not our own. But we tell
President Grant, as we tell England, that
this is an American question and must
be settled by America alone. England's !
flag has not been insulted. The lives of j
some of her subjects have been taken,
while they were under tho protection ol
the American flag, which we hold suffi
cient to protect them. It is for us to re
Suire atonement It is for us to cleause
ie stain from our national honor. It is
for us to take possession of Cuba for the
safety of our own territory, for the pro
tection of our own citizens, for the vin
dication of our own priuclples, in the
cause of civilization and humanity. In
the action which has been forced upon us
we can seek no alliance, we eau brook no
interference. It is, as wo have said, an
American question, to bo settled by
America, and if our government is true
to the people and true to itself we shall
occupy Cuba without delay. That done,
we may take counsel with England, or
or with any other friendly nation, as to
thc future; but for the present the work
is our own, and we must do it single
