When a man courts notoriety with hIs
pen, by airing himself or his opinions in
the newspapers, he must expect criti
cism; nor should he complain if the crit
icisma takes the form of censure. The
writer of the "Cari" in question, is open
to cri:icismi, because he risiakes facts
and by so doing niisrepresents our pe(
pie ; he is open to censure, for h- strikes
in the house of his friends, naligns hi
own people, and mrakes apologies for
their enemies. To sustain thee charges
let us examine his positions
lie says: "It must. be admitted that
our conquerors were generous; not a
shout frorn a victot ious soldier insulted
the miafortuns of a brave but un;ortu
nate army, &c. We had supposed that
the utter disregard by the E:it-.d S:at-s,
Government of the termNs of surrender
was not an act of generosity, nor indeed
(if C*iflomoni j ustice, that the lawless pil
lage and arson perpetrated in inyy in

not ealeu:ited te evoke sentimerits of
gratitude from our people. ie says fur

the Northern people, "from their private
resour,es," furnished food, &. I,) wh-at

that the United States Uovernient, by

w:rds4," as they were termed, :nod had a
right to expect food at the hands of the
Government whii had imade the n
"hoineless and housekss." Accordingly
rations were fo,- awhile issued to indigent
blacks and pauper whites, who l;ad ne

This is 'he extent of the charity, so
far as we are ade-ed. But the Colonel

The Political Out-look i n
South Carolina, as Review
ed by Rev. R. H. Cain.
If the present movement among the
clansmen of the different parties means
anything, there is a serious shufiing in
the camps. The organization of various
orders indicates a solidification of the
,trenigth of Republic.'s In the State.
The calls fur conventions of the Repub!i
cans, and the renewal of fealty atnong
the Democracy-the policy of concilia
tio, which is the de-ared policy fur the
future among them as toward the colnred
element-shows which way the ni iid i.,
hlowing. ih dde-spread discorttent
ailolg Republicans with the prese.t ad
minti:itrtion, and the enormous outlay of
moneys to meet the requirements of
Government. which necessitates addition
a! taxation, calls loudly on the people to
consider their best interes!s in the com
ing caimpaign, whether there should be
any change nade in their present law
makers aind those who direct the affairs
of State. There are so~me facts which
carinot be ii,taken by the most care!ess
observer-namely, that extravagn.Irjce has
been the ruin of the finances of this
S;ate. The needless expenditures for
military organizations, for ta-ntninhl

A rather amusing story is in cir(uIa
ion at the expense of the eminent ge'n- K
leman from Massachusetts, commonly
alled, "Old Strabismus." At the Pre-i
lent's leve the other night, which was
lensely crowded, an old lady from -the
nterior somewhere, in a fainting cone.i.
ion, requested her husband to get her
"Can't be did," responded "hub," in
ome irritation ; "there ain't no refrea.
"Don't believe it. Didn't we get plen
y at Belknap's the other night!" the
cod woman said angrily ; "now go and
ret me an ice and sotue lemonade."
"I tell you now don't be a fool; there
Lin't no refreshmiients, everybody says
;o," grunted the lord end master. -
"You are quite nistaken, sir," said
he lon. S. S. Cox, wbo happened to he
ear, and who never loses an opportuni
y to put in al,ke. "Thf- president al
vays provides substantially. Thqre is
is hurler, whose bu.inesb is to show In.
lies to the supper room," and the Hon.
itile jester pointed to General Butle:.
'You'l find him a little stuck up aind
:ross, but you musn't mind that; tell
iin to get you terrapins."
This was said so gravely that the two
itruggled through the crowd to where
3enleral Butler was talking to some la
"I say, master, I am told you are the
)utler," said the man.
"I'm Geineral Butler," replied Old
3tratpi.smus lilesantly, thinking the tAwo
;ouie country people filled with admiia
ion of his greatness.
"I don't care whether you are a gelse
a butler or not, but my wife wants
omne terrapir,s and lemonade."
"Sir ?" storted old B. in amazement
"Oh ! don't take on airs, old c((k.
.;oine now, hurry up those terrapins."
"You must be drunk, sir! you mu-t
>e drunk !"
''No he ain't," screamed the wife.
"Il e's a Good Templar ; he ain't drunk,
)ut I guess you are."
Roars of laughter greeted this, in
which S. S. Cox was forced to join. Gen.
Butler reddened in the face, and began
puffing his cheeks out in the Most vio
"I don't understand this extraoidinaiv
,.rhduct. What do you want, sir--nhat,
lo you i ant ?"
"Terrapins, I tell you."
"What do you take me for, you cussed
lool ?" roared Benjamin.
"You call ne a cussed fool and I'll hit
you on the snout," screamed the man.
At this juncture an officer of the police
seized the befligerent hu,band and l%d
rim away amid much laughter. Bu:le,
urnring suddeily, s"aw the tmisvhief mra
"I.sy, ox, didi y.u do thrat?"
