THURSDAY MORNINfl, APRIL 26, 1866.
It was with great gratification we read in the
last proceedings of Counoil a petition from bov
eral prominent oitizena of Charleston, asking
the privilege of introducing pure water into
the city. The want and necessity of this im
portant measure has been long felt as a great
obstacle to the health and cleanliness of
Charleston, and an impediment to the safety
and protection of property.
TroBBing and powerful arguments have been
brought forward on several occasions to in
duce ourpoople to establish water-works in our
midst Tbe great and only objection urged
against the proposal was that the cost would
be very great. We grant that the first out
lay may be expensive, but the ultimate eco
nomy of the measure can not admit of a
doubt When we look at the benefits that
will result from a oonBtant supply of this
pur? element throughout all the veins and
arteries of our metropolis, dispensing health
in its circulation, and oloauB.ng and purify
ing with its current all impurities, this alone
would bo a sufiioient return for the expendi
ture, particularly in seasons of drought, and
when every household complains of dry ois
terns. , But? added to this, if we take into
consideration the faot that if our energetio
Fire Department could have relied upon a
full and constant supply of water, the heavy
and widespread losses of property by fire,
wbioh for the past five years have devastated
our city, could have been prevented. The wide
spread de8truotivenes8 of the fires of 1838
and 1861 is alone attributable to the want of
a constant supply of water. The reeent fire
in King street destroyed several buildings
from the same cause ; and property will con
tinue to be destroyed by the one element, nn
i til the greater element can be brought in
supply to snbdue it We learn that the gen
1 tlemen whose proposal is now before Conn
1 oil oan control capital, and we do hot doubt
that the importance of this undertaking will
invite the attention of capitalists.abroad. ..
It now only remains for the wealth, pru
dence, and energy of our people to consum
mate the measure. Let every property-hold
er espouse the plan. ' Let our city authori
ties, Insurance Companies, and the Fire De
partment, become stockholders, and ere many
months shall elapse our city will boast of a
great internal improvement, and be blessed
with the acquisition of an important deside
ratum. : m : ,'' .'.- .;
WAYS AND MEANS.
We have seldom perused any document,
emanating from City Counoil, with greater
interest and satisfaction than tbe report by
the Chairman of the Committee of Ways and
Means, as published in our yesterday's issue.
The gentlemen composing this Committee are
known to be cautious and praotioal, long to
consider and slow to spend, as becomes tho
controllers of the city's exchequer. They
have constantly manifested a most commend
able: prudonoo and economy, banding every
energy to meet the obligations of the oity, and
pay the interest due on its debt on the first of
April. This Was necessary to uphold,'indeed
to redeem, our credit ; all-important, there
fore, and everything else had to bide its
Now the Committee tell us that these obli
gations have been properly and promptly
met, the credit of the oity is daily improving,
our s took rapidly returning to its pristine
figures; and they begin to feel easier, able
to take a long breath and look about them.
They are now in a condition to consider some
of the many enterprises and improvements
that have been suggested for the advantage
of the oity. Paving the streets, and repair
ing public building?, naturally will olaim
their first attention ; and estimates1 aro invit
ed for the purpose. '
Of almost equal importance is it that our
oitisens should have a place for healthful
recreation, to wbioh thoy could -resort in the
cool of tho evening, after the fatigue and ex
citement of the day. This, too, should be in
the.heart of the oity, so as to be accessible to
the greatest number. We are glad, there
: fore, that the Committee offered a resolution
, of inquiry in regard to this subject. - The
, square seleoted by them (bounded north by
, Horlbook'e Alloy, oan t by Mo o ting, south by
Queen, and west by King street) ?b, perhaps,
tho ajost suitable for the purpose, because
roout contrally looatod. . The purchase by the
city of tbe lots on this square would offer
\ fewer difficultioo than almost any. other? as
Ulereare no buildings to be -rased, and the
amount of tho porobaBO money, therefore, J
No tito hos, os yet, boon determined upon
for a park ; nor indeed has the idea been
fully matured. The resolution of tbo Com
mittee is a mere feeler ; and wo do not think
that Council will not in bo important a mat
ter without first ascertaining the sonso and
wishes of tbe oommunity.
It any practicable plan can bo devised for
opening such a park in our oity, without in
creasing the debt, we should bo glad to seo
it carried into operation, as it would add no
less to tbe beauty and health of the eity than
to tbe pleasure of our people. Tho "Battery,'*
in days gone by, was a favorito reBort of tbiB
nature ; but its distance from the oentre of
tbe oity frequently prevented poreona from
availing themselves of its pleasant green
Bward and oool refreshing breezes. The
' Mall," in tbe northeastern port, also is
available only to those in its immediate
vicinity. We need a central park, and ear
nestly hopo our oity governmont may be able
to let ?b have it.
BEFORM ACROSS THE WATER AND THE
REVERSE AT HOME.
The able London correspondent of the New
York Tribune, who, by the way, is tbe per
son who wrote tbe celebrated letters from
this oity about the time of tbe oommenoement
of the war to tbe Tribune, writeB 08 follows
of what are called tho Reform measures now
pending before the English Parliament. As
we mentioned, some time sinoe, these mea
sures look to the enfranchisement of a large
class of tbe population ofthat country hither
to ezeluded from the privilege of voting, and
the reorganisation of tbe Electoral Diet riots.
They are brought forward under the leader
ship of Gladstone, a member of the pre
sent Ministry, and decidedly one of the ablest
and moat accomplished statesmen now in
Tho issue now before the country is not only
the acceptance or rejection of Mr. Gladstone's
bill, but the existence of a Liberal administration.
The ministry having wisely, as well as courage
ously, resolved to stand or fall by the measure, it
lies with the people to close up ranks and go into
aotion after their leaders, determined te win or
stack their arms in calm, dishonorable, baso enb
mission" at the feet of the triumphant Tories.
That is tbe alternative, and one is rejoiced to see
it accepted pretty thoroughly. An enthusiasm
which the bill was certainly not calculated to
ovoko on its own merits seems likely to be excited
by the delightful perversity and admirable un
reason of its opponents, and especially by the out
spoken ranoor of the renegados whom a deficiency
of drill in the ranks to which they bad ileaertod,
urged to the front. The Tories and their allies
bare shown unmistakably that what they hate is
hot*the particular kind of reform proposed, but
The arguments put forward by Messrs. Lowo
and Horsman, and indorsed by Lord Robert Mon
tague and Viscount Granbourne, assert that unen
franchised masses are radioally unfit for the pos
session of a vote?in effect, the drunkards, braw
lers, brutes, and corrupt rae cala that the first
named member for the rotten borough of Galne?
"a village in the west of England"?chose to call
them. Mow, tbe Liberals of England are about as
much divided in opinion as were tho Abolitioniata
of America, to whom I have compared them, as tq
bow far it is desirable to interfere with the exist
ing state of things: they differ as to what extent
' the franchise ought to be lowered, and many
were disposed to consider the redistribution of
seats of more urgent importance than a mere
lowering of the suffrage, which will only practi
cally increase the power of the unrepresented
classes, without touching flagrant anomalies and
abuses, crying aloud for extinction. Bnt as we
Republicans were aU agreed that slavery should,
with our consent, go no farther, so the Liberals
here entertain no doubt as to the expediency of
increasing the electoral body. To admit that the
workiegmen of England ought to be permanently
excluded from any direct share in the government
1 of the country is to renounce tbe whole creed of
Liberalism. The eloquent and burning indigna
tion with which Mr. Gladstone repudiated tbe
stigma which tho Tory party attempted to affix to
their poorer countrymen was perhaps needed to
raise their feelings to the right pitoh?perhaps
expressly calculated for that purpose.
liI object," ho said, in answerto the vapid in
boIodco of Lord Robert Montague and the stupid
apprehensions of the Conservatives, "to the idea
of dealing with these statistics .ae if we were as
certaining the number? of ah invading army. The
people whb will be admitted to the franchise are
our fello\o-subjects, our fellow Christians, our own
jtesh and blood?men lauded to the skies for their
eonduct?men who have borne destitution, starva
ion almost, wiih.a patience which isa lesson to
aU." Won't, ttferd :ba ; a grand 1 eabp, to these
words'? "sbntlrn?htal rant" as Lord Crahhoume
termed them (a man whoso mind lia* been felici
tously dtscribed. as "oM with a false b<itt*ini"-?
when, next week, the Chancellor of tbe Exchequer
takes the stump iu Lancashire ?
It was t$e first time daring' his leadership that
be spoko with his old passion, and for the first
time the House of Commons felt that Mr. Glad
stone was In earnest about reform, as it only
learred recently to aopreciate Mr. Bright as, not
?speaker, but a d?biter.. Never was engineer
mere startlingly "hoist with hia own petard" than
the Tories were discomfited by the information
that Government intended to lay the Irish and
Hcotch Reform .bills, And ono for the redistribu
tion of seats, at onoe on tho table 1 " -
We OBpeoially oall attention to the italicis
ed remarks of Mr. Gladstone, in reply to
the Tory Advocate, Lord Montague, and
cite them jn contrast with the views of the
illiberal and potty-minded disfranohiserB who
are ruling tbe legislation of this country. In
the onoe free, enlightened and progressive
Am?rica, it was held that bur institutions
were tbe light and landmark for tbe ?nirit oi
liberalism throughout the world?that they
were bo constituted that they oouid stand all
tbe oonvulaionB to whioh all other forms of
government were Bubjeot, and survive
them unharmed in tbe integrity of the princi
ples on whioh they were founded. But there
'. has arisen among us a sohool of political
wiseacres who contend that, after the suppres
sion of a rebellion, and the submission and
return of the revolting element to its allegi
ance and duty to the laws, it is neoessary, fox
the safety of the state, that we should reverl
to the ideas of government prevalent a hun
dred years ago?that we mat? discard re
publicanism, 'and order our governmental
machinery after precedents established by
monarchy and feudalism, j
. Tho course of the Liberals of England, who
chiefly represent .'the middle olasa of that
country?and whioh is, in spito of the aristo
cratie features of that government, still ex
isting, the real and reliable support to'its
power, in the presence of the Fenian revolt
and ferment in Ireland?in endeavoring to
extend the right of franchise and enlarge the
influonoo of the people, should put to blush
the blatant liberty-ehriekera of, this nation,
who. to serre their own selflsh ends, are pre
tending to be tho champions par excellence of
freedom and progresa, bnt are overturning
the foundations of Its Booarity and perpetuity.
