WASHINGTON, May 11.-The best
planned and most skillfally executed
campaign ever made by the Govern
ment against the whisky ring, culmi
nated yesterday, in the seizure of
more than thirty of the largest houses
in St. Louis, Chicago and Milwaukee.
Other distillery seizures have been
ordered at Pekin,-Illinois, Cincinnati,
Ohio, and elsewhere, and the Secre
tary to-day directed that legal steps
be taken at all points where frauds
have been discovered and that arrests
be made where evidence is sufficient
to justify them. The officers have
already ascertained that great quanti
ties of this crooked wl- iskey have been
distributed throughout the country,
especially in the South, but the form
of the packages in which it was origi
nally shipped has been changed in
many instances, and it will now be
impossible-to detect much of it. The
value of distilled property seized yes
terday is over $1,000,000.

that the "working politicians," the

The Press Association.
As briefly stated in our last issui
the convention of editors and pul
lishers which met in Charleston on th
6th inst., was a success. True theT
was not a full representation, but
was fully large and influential enoug'
to w;.rrant the assumption that th
i Assoeiation. which was happily orgai
Ized on that occasion, will ere the uex
meeting be largely increased in nun
ber. There have been difficulties her<
tofore in the way of forming an ass<
ciation of this kind, but these, as th
News and Courier states, in an ad
mirable article on the subject, wer
happily.avoided, and the rock on whie

We are satisfied on this point, an

As any editor or publisher in th

the Press in South Carolina.
By reference to card it will be se'e
that this favorite resort will be opene
on the first of June, and the announce

by the people all over the State, but b
no section with more pleasure than b
the County of Newberry, which is a
ways largely represented there. TLa
improvements made at Glenn's are of
character which will afford comfort an
pleasure. The main structure as we

in furniture, &c., have also received a
tention. We are pleased to notice thz
due regard has been paid to making th~
different approaches to the Spring cor
venient and easy. As to the tabbi
amusements, &c., no pains will bi
spared by Mr. Gorman, its popular le:
see. The announcement, too, that Di
. B. Mayer, our distinguished town
man, will be in attendance to respon
to any call made upon him professior
ally, will afford great relief, his skill a

pleasant and prosperous season.

-e scene one calculated to warm heart
.e and soul. Our friends seemed en

n tion. We tried in vain to bring them
e down. It was no use, the lovely
it Charleston girls, the entrancing musie,
it the bright waters of the bay, the swift

d At length we suggested that here an
n editor might get a local when1 in a

e effect, and to a man they exclaimed,
Le yes, a thousand of them. Who could
h not get up a local under the inspira
s tion of so much of the beautiful.
it But there were other things s"en and
d other experiences. We did not visit
k the market this time, there was too
e much convention in the city, too many
r things to see. The Baptist Convan
k tion was considerably larger than that
d of the Press, but a member of the latter
I body claimed that the former was not so
-distinguished in the appearance of its
- representatives, but it mij;ht be best
a not to say much on that point.
- Busine.ss in the city is tolerably
. lively, yet it might be better; so
e thought every member of the Press
i Associatio'n, for while the merchants
r of Charleston complain that the up
s country does not give them the trade
s they. expect they make very little ef
fort to draw business to them. One
of the reasons is they do not advertise
s in the country papers, and the natural
e sequence is that they are not known
e as favorably and as widely as they
should be. That Charleston has facil
s ities for supplying the trade no one
e disputes, and very great natural advan
tages, but her business men cannot
expect that the trade will go to them
f unless it be solicited and inducements
- thrown out. We allude particularly
e now to the wholesale men. The retail
- dealers, too, should learn a thing or
e two; extravagant prices drive off trade
*r instead of attracting it, and frequently
e the ruralist can not only find an article
p more readily at home. but can get it
n at a considerable reduction in price.
The city merchant must not always
~o take the ruralist for a green horn.
- They should first find out who the
d customer is, but better still treat all
n alike. No member of the Press Con
'vention was victimized, but one or two
d of the delegates who attended the
I- religious meeting were, and in this way:

one cause for regret. Our elevation
to the important position of Treasurer'
involved us in a sea of diffieulties. for
it did not take long ere the idea el-e

to take advantage of our youth and
abstract the fuuds from our wall't, and
so frequent and persistent the efforts ite
I that finally we concluded to flee away
from the hospitable shelter of the .

re to interest the eye of the traveler; and .and
tn a fortune-seeker might find his dreams L
nearly realized here as in the "gold re-"'=
ms" of the far WVest. This superstitious
erence for some distant paradise is as
>ish as it is pedantic anyway. Our woods
d streams are as beautiful, and our val
-s as capable of production as those that
etch themselves along the Pacific Coast. .
ir houes of worship, though modelled not ceiv
ti graven pillars, nor adorned with sculp
ed architraves, yet "love for the old laud" I
tkes them beautiful in our eyes. Our
mes, though guarded not by the Lares and
nates that presided over Roman hear'.h
anes, have the vigilant angel of household
re forev.er hovering around them. Any beai
e unbiased by prejudice must admit that M
s mountain region is the garden spot of -
State. All that is lacking to develop REI
s a spirit of enterprise among the inhabi- Ba
its. Talk not of the rich harvest fields of lf
Xorthwest, while our own forests can
-nish hundreds of acres equally as pro- o
lhe natural scenery, too, is doubtless as u.g
mtiul as that of other lands. What is tit
ire beautiful than to see the red rays of 0the
morning sun reflected from ten thousand p
les suspended from every twig,aud bough, Due
'1 roof, for miles and miles around, and A
u like heaps of scattered j'ewels upon theDe
zed surface of the earth, or jutting
mn the rails of the fences like so many Rea

brilliant Auroras, its fields of ice and- Chte

strat.on of innocent childhood and guilty
