The Oolumbia Robbery.
On Sunday morning, 17th instant,
about 9 o'clock, as 11r. A. C. Davis,
one of the officers coimected with the
Int' inal Revenue )partmcnt, was
entering the passage-way leading to
his .office-which is in the second story
of the building in the Court House
square, occupied by Messrs. Scott,
Williams &. Co., as a banking house
-he observed a ball of twine on the
floor, behind the door ; on stopping to
pick it up, ho found that the cord pass
ed through a hole in the side wall of
the bank. His suspicions becoming
excited, he immediately went out and
related the circumstance to two no
quaintancos, when the trio returned
and made an examination of the
premises. The rear door of the bank
was found ajar, and the parties enter
od ; the doors leading into the front
office were all open ; continuing explo
rations, they next discovered a sledge
hammer, stool rods, wedges, and sev
eral mysterious-looking implements,
and the door of the vault open to its
fullest extent. A voice in an adjoin
ing closet attractedl their attention,
when, upon opening the door, a whito
man came forward. This individal,
Dayton L. Onige by name, was form
erly a United States soldier; after.
wards connected with an assessor'soflice
in one of the upper countie+, but lost
his position through tulfoasance in
oflice, as we are informed ; he then
came to Columbia and was employed
for a time by Probate Judge Wigg;
is now idle. Gaige's account of his
incareoration in the nuilding is to the
effect that, on Saturday night., about 11
o'clock, while on his way home, he was
overtaken by the rain ; that he step
pod into the passage way, in rear of
the bank, and partially closed the
door; shortly afterwards, a man,
hum he supposed was the bank
watchman, oaut ht him by the arms
end dragged him into the adjacent
room--aige, as he says, protesting
that ho was not a robber, etc.; an
other individal then appeared and
presented a revolver at his head,
threatening to kill him if he made
any alarm. Gaigo s-iys lie was then
tored into a closet, near the vault, the
parties insisting that ho should lie
down and keep perfectly quiet, or
they would promptly dispose of him.
Ho says that the two individuals then
returned to the front rooi, and con
tInued hammering and boring for
scveral hours ; and that about 5
o'clock, as ho supposes they left the
building. lie was, as he asserts,
afraid of making any outcry, as the
robbers might bo oi the premii.es still

Reflections on the acorgia
The country has come to a sad pass,
indeed, when we are obliged to bail
the Go )rgia bill that has just passed
the U. S. Senate as a Conservative
triumph. It reconverts the State into
a military district, and incidentally
puts it Into the power of a lying gov
ernor, by collusioa with the President,
to carry any election, in any Southern
State, by the employment of the sol
diery of the Union. Are the eyes of
Southern men opened yet ? Do they
ki ow that they are conquered, or do
they not? Do they still propose to
instruct their conquerora in the prin
ciples of political philosophy, letur
ing them most sagely upon the Con
stitution and States Rights, or do they
propose to take a now departure, and
leaving government to those who gov
ern, attend exclusively to their own
business, in the education of their
children, in the creation of wealth,
and in the increase of our white popu
We hold that the South, in order
more fuily to command the powers of
nature for her recuperation, should
adopt the policy of passive support of
the Federal Administration at the
time existing, for many years to come,
in order to cause the Federal powcr
to be at least neutral in its policy to
wards us. To run or elect opposition
candidates, in Federal polities, is ut
terly vain, for under one pretext or
another, their election is sure to be
disallowed. \Ve should send men to
. ij,. wh. have no ambition to
le.d z.. '1 ui..u:..tion to Grant, but
who will follow Grant, when by a pas
sive support, they gradually convince
him that popularity .nd reelection
lie in the hands of the Conservativest,
and persuade him to lead off in the
organiizaition of a National Constitu
tional Panrt y, wh ich is certain to spring
up and gaini poss~ession of the Govern
mient, and the germs of which come to
light with every debate on every im
p)ortaLnt measure in Congress.
But will Southern men do this?i
No. There are thousands of incipient
Calhounis, a vast breed unfledged po
litica.l Solomnons, who think the North
in a very bad way for want of politi
cal instruction upon the evils of con
solidation, the history of the eonfed
eration, and the meaning of the decla
tion of independence ; whose absurd
conceit, in supposing that triumphant
power will not resent such unparallel
vd im pertinenuc, exceeds ovetything
upon the records of history, and whose
unmeaning glorilloation of the emas
culated and cowvardly Northern De
moorney simply incenses Congress
agrainst us. There are, too, many of
the Confederate soldiers, who will
never vote for Grant, nor a Grant
man, under any circumstances. And
lastly, there are many sober, honest
men, who believe, with ourselves, that
Grant is no statesman, but will go
with the majority, so soon as he finds
where the majority are, but they will
not, like ourselves, support him, as the
best we can do, in spite of this glar
ing fact, because he is the choice of
those who have a choice, for we of the
South have none.
There is little of the wire-pulling
politician about these reflections.
Bluteas the Phanix has announced,
with admirable candor, that it admits
the black man's right to suffrage and
oftice, to get rid of the discussion, and
be free to attend to more important
business with greater personal satis

A Bad Law.
We are singulurly contituted in
not immediately acot pting the mordly
plausible view of almost any subject,
and have found ourselves in a n inori
ly of one in approving of what our
oontemporarios have unanimously
dubbed "the infamtou, coin-bill," in
protesting against the State prees, in
the matter of University and Stat
aducation generally, not being ais
led, and not lettintg well enough
alone ; and now, in pronouncing the
law exempting manufacturers from
taxation for five years the very worst
law of the last'session, and a very
Pandora's box of infiuite corruption
and evil, we believe that we stand
alone. If manufactures cannot grow
up spontaneously and profitably in
South Carolina, artif-iil props and
%ids will not assist in their healthy
levolopment, any more than stimu
ants and too high a diet will contrib.
te to the vigorous growth of child
iood. They will simply create a vi.,
>ious lobby at Columbia, and produce
ArIbery and corruption, ol.ass legisla
ion and unequal taxation, degrading
'till more the businesi of politics, that
irat of all arts and scitence4, the de
;radation of which is even now so
great, that a man almost loses his
tharaoter as a gontlenman who joins
he party that has a o'ear majority of
,hirty thousand votes, and which de
graded condition of polities is a heart
bleeding sorrow to ourselves, and to
avery true lover of his State, of her
young men, and of his own children.
Looking, too, to our future in Fede.
ral politics, this law is fraught with
incalculable evil. We all remember
iow the horse allowed itself to be
mounted by the man, in order, by his
assistance, to prevuil in a oontest with
the stag. - Just so, this law is the first
taking of the bit into the mouth by
South Carolina. delivering her over,
aspeoiallv if such a Legislature as the
last continue to be elected, as they
probably will, into the control of mo
nopolists and stock-jobbers, who will
depress the industry and retard the
material development and prosperity
of the State. And thus, for a short
lived advantage, will have been fiung
away the permanent good of the comn
mnunity and the futur.e freedomt of the

We once expr esied1 a fe:3r to a gen-.
tleman in conversation, that the dis
tinguished divines, Dr. Hunti'gion
(now Bishop of New York,) .and Dr.
Osgood, in leaving the Unitarians and
oming into thme Protestant .Episcopal
Church, might bring some of their so
elian education and creed along with
t,hem. He replied very sensibly:
"Well, if they do, they will mske few
converts, anad do very little harm, so
long as they read Cur Litany every
Sunday morning. Heresy is com
pletoly fized. in our Church on that
and several ether points, and there is

by the remark, and saw what the lib

It will, then, perhaps, surprise many,
who feel none of this burden that
presses upon even us, a more County
paper, to see us, turn deliberately and
hopelessly from the sphere of. politi
cal, to the wore solemn field of reli.
gious seficotion. For us, of the ,pres
ent generation, connection with poli
ties may be a duty, though we some
times doubt even that, but it cannot
be a pleasure. Pride in that govern
went, which lis crushed out our ideas
of States Rights and self-government,
and slaughtered and butchered our
nearest of kin, in an unjust and un
called-for war, it next to impossible.
At most, we can only give it a passive
support, and learn gradually to love
it, when it deserves our reg3-rd. But
from all the vexation of polities, we
can turn with confidence, to the com
forts and hopes of religion. Sncme
sincere Northern nen, whom we could
cordially take by the hand, have come
among us ; but destined to be ruled,
with the assistance of the Federal
bayonet, by others who are the merest
off-scouring of the earth, and for whom
a true Southerner cannot but feel en
instinctive and irrepressible loathing,
our best hope as a people is to put our
trust in God, and patiently abide our
time, educating our children in those
principles of religion and virtue, of
devotion to duty and honor and sin
cere conviction, which made us a
great and noble people before and
throughout the war, upon which rests
our faith and our consolation for the
present, and in an unfaltering adbe
rence to which consists the brightest
hope of our future.
Count Us In.
The Charleston News, in a some
what impatient comment upon the
dignifi^d and manly announcement of
its position by the Phanix, says:
"The Citizens' Party is not actively
opposed to the administration of
Grant." We rejoice over this an

will adopt as its Federal policy the
following resolution, (since Federal
policy it must have) "Resolved that
the Citizens' Reform Party is not or
ganized u opposition to General
Grant's taIinistrat;ion, but in opposi

in State taxation and expenditure,"
we, as a Grant journal, promise it our
most cordial support.

Olues to the Pank Bobbers-An Arrest,
There was considerable excitement
in our city yesterday over the discove.
ry of trails of the supposed bank rob.
bers. The afternoon previous, Magis
trate Thompson had been watching a
suspicious person, and between 9 and
10 o'clock that evening Magistrate T.
accosted him on a street at the out.
skirts of the city ; but the man was on
the alert, and, as soon as approached,
took in his situation in a second, drow
a pistol, and threatened the officer
with death if he molested him. The
oficer withdrew to secure reinforce.
uieia"s, and, in company with several
oitizins, re-visited the scene of opera.
tiona this morting, but the bird had
flown. The women living in the
house near by gave unreliable and
conflicting statements in reference to
the supposed whereabouts of the ob
ject of the search.
In other sections of the city active
search was going on, and squads of
officials and private citizens were seen
hurrying to some suspected locality,
tracing the slightest trail tat could
le heard of, all seeming satisfied that
the burglars had not left the city lim
Several articles have ben found
which are matched by things left at
the bank, and which have given the
officers of the law some idea as to who
are the guilty parties.
Sheriff Frazee had a suspicious
character under surveillance for the
past two or three days, and his suspi.
cious culminated in an arrest yester
day afternoon, about 5 o'clock, one
McoCartney being the victim. It ap
pears that McCartney had been living
quite secluded since Sunday last,
which is contrary to his habit, and
persons in the neighborhood drew Mr.
F.'s attention to the fact. Mr. F.
visited Gaige in his cell at 12 o'clock
Tuesday night, and got a deacription
of the man or men he saw in the bank,
which description McCartney answer
ed to. Gaige was then taken to the
house where MeC. lived, and he iden
titled him as one of the parties who
robbed the bank. The Sheriff there
upon arre-ted McCartney. The pris.
oner will have an examination this
morn ing, at 10 o'clock, before Magis
McCartney was formerly a mem ber
of Company HI, Eighth Infantry, U.
S. A., and has recently returned to
Columbia from Charlotte, N. 0.
We have information to the effect
that the officers of tne law are wide
awake and hope soon to secure all the
parties connected with the robbery.

treachery to their principles, and are
no lobs Republicans still. They

lingnvss that all of us shall have
a representation and voice in the
counoils of the State. They have

as well as their right to hold ofiice.
and that being done, they come for

word, cordially unite with them in
endeavoring to redeem the State.
Shall the citisens of Kershaw refuse
to followt his example ? We do not ask
any man to give up his principles, but
that all men unite to secure good
government-a government which
gives equal rights to nll and imposes
low taxes upon the governed. As it
now stands, the people who represent
the taxable property have no repre
sention or voice in the General As
sembly, but are compelled to support,
out of their hardly obtained earnings,
the government which they had no
voice in making, and its officials, who
are foreigners and care for naught but
to enrich themselves. If the colored
men expect to become landholders
and owners of personalty, they will
then feel that the groans and cries of
the white people who have been taxed
to death are no vain or unmeaning
empty sounds. Do not the colored
men who own property know already
the meaning of heavy, burdensome,
oppressive taxation? If with such
small propert-y, it is so difficult to
find means to meet the taxes, how
much more so if possessed of large
estates? Therefore, it is no party cry
that invitos you to unite in this or
deavor to secure, among other things,
lower taxation, but rather the voice
of reason urging us to the the beacon
of hope which beams brightly up,n
the rock of unity !
JUSTICE AT LAST.-Governor Ste
venson, of Kentucky, has just par
doned a Northern man from the Peni
tentiary who had been sentenced to
seventeen years' imprisonment for
negro stealing. He was convicted in
1863 and had, therefore, served about
seven years of the term of sentence.
The Louisville Courier-Journal, in
commenting upon this event, remarks
that "this may be set down as the last
of the immediate consequences of sla.
very in Kentucky." Rather the first,
we would suggest, of the consequences
of the ratification of the fifteenth
amendmont. It is no crime now to
steal a tigger in Kentucky.-N. Y.

nut, a colored member of the Legis
lature, was drunk, and speaks of Sen
ator Rainey as "one negro who enter
