Gold for t.otton.
T.O0, DeLeoni E.A., of thei Mobile

room during the recent panio. From
- letter of his undt~i'.dat# of the fol

"Now, where this question touches
us so nearly, is the fact that there was
little real demand for gold; that nier
ohants did not offer it: nad thab, at

p roocodings, yesterday, were gam
bling transactions, pure and simple ;
and the gold market of the whole
'country was terribly shaken to put
four per cent. into the pockets of the
'lique' who control this market for
the moment. If the export demand
for gold to pay duties or balances in
favor of imports had been great, we
could understand it However dissat
isfed Southern markets might be,
they could see some excuse, even if no
reason. But when such a wonderful
rise can be forced by the mabipula.

back them; when gold offered in this

merely nominal for the sales of the

that.is, to demand at every Southern

On the same subject the New York

cotton were sold for nothing but spe

soon form the gold values of wheat,

"The only possible means by which
gold can be restored as our currency,

Tii CUBAN QUESTION CUL.MINAT
ING.-As far as the policy and action
of the United States ore concerned
the Cuban question is culminating. If
we look at this question as it now
stands-at the efforts Qf our govern
ment through General Sickles to obi
tain the independence of Cuba ; at
the declaration of our Minister to the
Madrid government that the time is
near when the United States will have
to recognizo the Cubans as belliger
ents; as public sentiment here, at
the well known synipathy of the Pres
ident, the Cabinet and Congress with
the Cubans; at the inoroased activity
of Spain to crush the insurrection;
at the prolonged and so tar successful
struggle of the Cubans' to acquire
their indcjcende-nco, and now at the
Cuban privateer, the IRomet, falling
into the hands of the United States
authorities, as well as at the difficul
ties surrounding the Euterpe and the
Spanish gunboats In our waters--it Is
evident the administration is brought
to a point whent its policy ad purpose
with rogaid to Cuba must be. ma'de
known. A purely negative policy is
no longer possibl6, though a~n afirrma
tive policy in favor of the Cubans
would necessarily lead to a rdfpture
with Spaiu or to tSparticipatrion in the
struggle. The ime is near when the
United States muet oither recog Iizo
the Cubans as belligerenti r hbstidon
them to their fate.-.N. Y. Hecrald.

Ma, Ez:iTon: The.. editor of th
Cha leston Courier, in sn article refer
ring to the University, stigmatizes th
students as '-Governor Scott's pets,'
and basely insinuates that they ar
not the "sons of South Carolina gen
tlomen." We, the students thu
scurrilously attaoked, ask for a plao
in your paper for a reply.
We have preferred entering and en
doavoritig to sustain the University
with its able Faculty, to leaving oun
native State, in order to obtain th<
opportunities of a liberal eduo..tion

would have in the future, were it not
for such contemptable articles as that
of the Courier. Afraid to impute die
honorable motives to the professors
knowing full well that his miesilei

he vents his spleen upon the students
congratulating himself that he is mak.
ing a bold display, without the possi
bility of a retort. But we are "song
of South Carolina gentlemen," inher
iting the old Carolina spirit, and we
spurn his dastaidly insinuations with
the utmost contempt, both for the ar
tidle and its author. No negroes
have been presented to the Faculty
for admission, and the russors whicb
have bden oirculated to that effeet are
false. Nor are the statements that
the majority of the studente are bene
fioiaries true; there are only four or
five beneficiaries in the institution,
and an attack made upon those gentle
men could only emanate from one too
much their inferior to deserve notice.
The fact that the majority of the for.
mer Faculty have remained-and cer
tainly they compare favorably with
those who have resigned-is sufficient
assurance that the high tone of the
University will be maintained. We
entered the University to complete
our education, not to enter the politi
cal arena. Our purpose here is edu
eation, and we deeply; regret to have
to depart from our duties to vindicate
ourselves from insinuations,. disgrace

the editor of the Courier may be as
sured that his influence, if he has any,
has contributed to the result. Nor
need he imagine that the people of
South Carolina are to be deceived by
his representations; the situation of
the University will be known, and the
knowledge of its position will not re
fleet any credit upon the Courier,
which should have been its friend,
but, perhaps fortunately for our repu
tation, has become its bitter enemy.
Many of our young friends have bQop

of John Klein, a nurse temporarily em
ployed at the Marine flospital upon
the charge of having assaulted Mr. Pat.
rick Carr, a patient, with a strap.
Yesterday he wan arraigned befost
Magistrato Mackey. The testimony
showed that ho had willfully assaulted
the patient, Cair, with a strap, several
tims dariug the night, each blow of
the etrap bringing blood from the infirm
and paralyze d old man. As sion as the
testimony weas given, the magistrate
committed the accused to jail to await
trial for making an assault and battery
wit It intent to kill.
The aceused had scarcely been com
mittel to jail when the news came that
Mr. Carr, will had been very low, and
a portion of th time insensible, since
lh attack, was deaid. Coroner Wiat
ing was notified, and at half past four
o'clock had a jury of inquest empannell.
ed. The dead body was viewed and
bore the marks of the brutal treatmb:t
the dtecensed hand receive-d. Drs. J.
Somers 3uist and T. Grange. Simons
were requested to make at post-mortem
oxnaination and report. thin result to
the jury 'At l.a!'f.past 4 o'loeck on Mon.
lay afternoon next, to which time (ho
jury then adjourned.
Thera can be no pallintion fir this
murderous act of the acensed. Any
one who would commit an assaualt of this
character upon another when he is old,
intirm, paralyzed nnd speechless, alto
gether rnable to offer or resent prova
tion, should be puuisha'd to the fullest
-xttnt of the law, and we hope that if
the accused be fomd guilty, he will
meet the roward he so richly merits.
