ridiculous farco, but for the fact that

the irop-olad oath, if -he please, and if

It will. not destroy this party. He
6uld see the folly of attempting it,
bj 6imply glancing across the line,
and pondering the reaction in Ten
nessee that has sprung of the same
short-sighted course. This third par-\
ty is destined to grow. It will gradu
ally absorb the Democratic party
within it, and infuso the vigor of its
now life and progressive spirit into
that effete organization. For if the
DIemod0ratic party will heed the coun
sol of John Quinoy Adams, accept ne
gree suffrage as something already
forced upon the country, and act upon
the issues of the present and the fu.
turo, it will have cotno up to the posi
tion now held by the third party called
a.t prosent the Conservative or Con
servative Republican party ; and un
less the ballok-box be stuffed in 1872,
and the votes be counted by the bayo
net-a result that would not surpriso
us at all, for there are no constitu
tional rights now-it will elect its
candidate for the next Presidenoy by
a tremendous majority.
"The formation of a third party in
South Carolina would be the destruc
tion of the Republican party."
These are not our words, but a quota
tion from the late contributions of
'I6 Mackeys to the Charleston pa
pers, and it is the burden of their
charge that Senator Sawyer favors
suUb a party, and is using influence
and patronage to create it. Bout
well and Creswell and Butler take the
same view of the matter as affecting
the nation, that the Mackoys do as
affecting this State. They soo that it
is a party of liberal principles and
progressive Ideas. But their fear and
their hatred cannot provent its growth
nor long postpone its triumph, for it
is 6he party of domestic peace and
national progress, which it is the inter
est of all, whether wvhite or black,
earnestly to support, since peace and
progress will bring contentment, pros
perity and liberty to all. This is the
party for which we are willing to

that its efforts, therefore, will be to

Dr. Johnson refused to coninder' Dr Ml

Tui DFCAT.H OF MARSHAL,. Nicr, OF
FgAxAe.-A cable dispatch from Paria,
announces the decetase of Marshal
Adolphe Neil, of France, one of the
most. prominent military men and states.
men of the Empire. His name revels
his origin. oQt an Irishman himself,
he is neverth1de0 an Irishman by near
descent. -i is te latest instance of
the peculiar aptitude of the Irish for
military aaire. Marehall Neil was
born in Mu(t,- in 1802. He entered
the PolytechnicSchool of Paris in 1821
and the Militari Academy of Metz in
1823, and cornrienned his military ca
reer in 1826 as.ai second ieutenant of
engineers. In 1826,-7 he distinguished
hinself in the.txpdition against Con
stanti4q iO Algfma, and was promoted,
October 25th,-:1837, to command the
corps of engineers ip that province. On
his return to F4rance he gained distinc
tim as a miliary engineer, nnd was
appointed colonal in 1840. In 1846 he
accompanied Gdneral Vailant in an ex
pepedition to Rbmine. He becam.e gene,
ral of division in 1853; co'mmanded in
1854 the siege operations against Bo
marson, and i (1 855 was appointed ad
jutant to Napoldon III., and was em
ployed at the siege of Suebastopol. In
1857 lie became a member of the
French Senate jim 1860 he took a
prominent part in the Italian campaign,
and decided by the skillful operation, of
the artillery under his cmmand the
victory of Solfeiito, after which lie was
made a Marshal of' France. The Em
peror Napoleon III. was miuch attached
to this veteran supporter of his throne.

Ilearn frum Democratun po-iticians who
hive just arrived here from Ohio and
other Northwestern States, that the
mass of the people are consoientiously
and obstinately opposed to paying any
more of the principal and interest of the
public debt. The policy, of absolute
and entire repudiation is likely to pre.
vail in the West at no distant day. The
half way projects urged by Mr. Pendle..
ton and others do not meet.the present
views either of tax payers or iontax
payers. Senator Sherman has thought 4
that his pending scheme would appease
the Western clamor against the debt
But he will firid it to be useless. The
people care nothing about the deduction
of the rate of interest proposed by Sena.
tor Sherman. They are against paying
any interest. . The non tax payers who
are, nevertheless, voters, .oppose .the
payment of any debt as a dangerous
example either for a public or private
transaction.-Cor. Charlerton Courier.

The water was warned for the com
fort of the candidates on a baptismal
ocoaiqn in 4 Baptist olturob at Provi
dence, Rhode Iladti, last Saturday
week. The rising steam caused a
general stampede among the congre

who thought the building was on fire.

of any similar occurrence attending
the ordinance of baptism as adminis

This gentlemafi whose select seed so

We are" t Ioit n learn, says the
001)u I a~el., a1 animportant
enterprise on foot, wiiich promises to
be of great value to tho farming in
teres's of the whole State. A Joint
stock company is being formed among
theplanters along the lines of railroad
centroing in Columbia, for the ore
tion of a large mill for pressing oil
imYm cottoa seed. The stockholders
will send the r seed to the mill, which
will pay freight, press out the oil, and
return the oil-coake, with a third of tho
profits on the oil to the farmer Rond
ing the seed. The iemaining prof!tLu
of the mill leave a very handsome in
come to the stockholders. The sub
scription books are open at the office
of Col. Wm. Wallace, and we learn
that the stock is being rapidly sub
scribed, to be paid cash, payable in
October, and in cotton seed. The
many lines of railroad centreing here
offer peculiar advantages to such an
enterprise, and a large business .i#
confidently expeoted, seed having
been already offered, from Georgiae
and from every acceible poration of
this Slate. Cotton-seod oil-eake is
readily eaten by all kinds of stock, is
more nutritious and . digestible than
oorn, and the manure deriv~ed: from it
is four times s valuable as 'that from6
corn. England imports this caln
largely, aits market value there is
from 2 to 21 cents per poutnd . (gold,)'
while corn b*ings iloss than 4t eents
per pound. At proeseit the only value
of cotton seed to our farmers is as upa)
nure for corn, It. is. thus. converted
into feed at the delay,. expense% and
risk of naking the next- yent's 'e'ern
crop. To lue It fiie diately con..
