to San Francisco, in pigs of about seventy
pounds weight. A shipment of seventy tons
Eas-been made to New York. Some of the iron

place of the Babbit metal.
' -The English people are. laughing over the

as bad as the official routine of tho Havan i

such a course is necessary.
-The monument to be erected over the

thick. Upon this rests a single block of Italian
marble. The block is six feet long, two feet
wide, and two and a half foet high. It is a
mere plain surface, except the inscription,
which is in square, plain cut-raised letters iu
part, and the remainder in plain Roman. There
is not an ornament about it, not even a mould?
ing, to break the severe simplicity and solidity
of the massive stone.

-Atstriking illustration of tho force of a
mother's love for her child has recently been

Merrill, of a woman, Catharine McArdle, who
had been sentenced four years ago to the State
penitentiary for life. She confessed to tho
murder of her husband and was sentenced to
be hanged, but her sentence was commuted by
Governor Stone. It was afterwards found that
abo was entirely innocent, and that her son
was the guilty person. To save him from the
gallows she had avowed that she was guilty of
-One of the most transparent of the politi?
cal humbugs of tho day is the forwarding of
petitions to Congress numerously signed by
laborers employed in maurfactnring districts,
praying for such increase of protective duties
as win revive manufactures and restore pros?
perity to the country. This is called a prayer
of American workingmen for the protection of
American industry. It is perfectly well-known
that these petitions are gotten np by the em?
ployers, and that the workingmen who should
ref ase to sign would do it with the peril of dis?
missal before his eyes. All that these things
mean is that bounties are to be paid by the
government to a few pet interests, and it is
thought the process can bo most effectively be
gun by the disgraceful mockery and humbug
of using the name of poor laborers, who are in
no way interested in the increased rate of
duties they are made to ask for.
-Eastern Florida is be?g laid out in large
farms, for the purpose of cultivating fruits and
early vegetables for Northern markets. Jack?
sonville, the chief shipping port of the State,
is but four days from New York by steamer,
and still less by railroad. It is estimated that
fifty thousand young orange and lemon trees
have been set ont since the war, and that ten
thousand are now in bealing, in the northern
part of the State, the fruit selling at $15 to $20
per thousand, es it hangs on the trees. The
settlers at the extreme southern part of the
State are chiefly engaged in the manufacture
of tapioca, which root, as well as other tropi?
cal fruits, grows there freely.
-General Stoneman is making vigorous ef
I forts to revive the credit of Virginia by en?
forcing thc payment of the interest on the
State bonds. The semi-annual interest,
amounting to $750,000, which fell due ou July
1st, wag not paid, and a very great deprecia?
tion in tb; value of the bonds was the result.
General Stoneman, assuming that the State
was able to pay her debts, ? she would make
an effort, has devised a plan, of which the fol?
lowing is a brief summary: He intends to col?
lect from the railroads and canals and other
corpora ted companies in which the State has
an interest, the amounts ot their dues, and
will then compel the State Government to ne?
gotiate a loan, which he, as District Com?
mander, will approve, to make up the balance.
The amount of corporation dues and the
$200,000 now in the Treasury, it is asserted,
will nearly makeup the required sum.
THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1868
The Platform In Full."
We have the pleasure of laying before
our readers this morning, among our spe?
cial telegrams from New York, the full text
of the Platform of Principles adopted unan?
imously by the Democratic National Con?
vention on Tuesday last. The meagre sy?
nopsis transmitted by the Associated Press,
and published in the Charleston papers of
yesterday, was so unsatisfactory, that we
determined that the readers of THE DAILY
NEWS should not wait for a full copy by
mail, and our correspondent in New York
was promptly instructecr to telegraph the
document entire. It is by such strokes of
bold and costly enterprise, whenever occa?
sion justifies, that we mean to keep THE
NEWS 'jteadii/ ahead of the other daily
journals in the South.
Tbe Downfall of It adie alla m in South
The colored voters of South Carolina have
been aa clay in the hands of the political pot?
ter. They have been moulded into such
shapes as were most profitable to scallawag
and carpet-bagger, and in return for their
large voting majority,-their speech-mak?
ing and marching in procession,-their 1
hungering and thirsting,-their renuncia- i
tion-cf honesty and affiliation with rascal?
ity, have been graciously permitted to give
every profitable civil position in .he State
to sn oub>at-elbowB white man. They had
the power sud exerted it for the good of
others. They could ^-ha ve elected a negro
Lieutenant-Governor, negro members of i
Congress, a negro State Treasurer, but
they did not. They loved their Radical
brethren; they trusted to soft, wordst and I
vague promises; they believed that "forty ;
acres and a mule" were better than a seat '.
in Congress, or a summer session in a i
crowded hall in Columbia. They were told,
and believed, that to make the negro prom?
inent would ruin the party; but, when they
saw with their own eyes that the fat mule
and broad acres were as unsubstantial as
the honesty of a lobbying Congressman;
that a dollar in State bills went into the .
pocket of the white man for every five cents ;
that crossed their own greasy palm6; -that
there was' not even the traditional honor
among thieves, they became dissatisfied
swearing by all the gods of Africa that they
woul have their fall share of the profits of
Thia determination is now made public.
Whipper, one of the ablest colored men in
the South, has announced in the State Sen?
ate that his race must no longer be ignored.
"They had filled offices with ignorant, irre?
sponsible white men, always yielding to
"the cry of expediency, but they would be
"deceived no longer. If the party could
"not stand the weight of the black man in
"doing him justice, the party had better go
"to pieces." These are significant words,
and they show the working of that natural
law which, without any outside aid, will
destroy the Radical party in every South?
The negro feels that he has been cheated
ancL'swindled, and is resolved that in future
he will have the larger half of the sweets
of office. Confident in the force of brute
numbers, he does not fe?r defeat, or is
aware that defeat for him is also death to
the Radicals who- have lived by his votes.
The white Radicals, on the other side, have
learned that want of respectability is thc
great danger of their party, and that to
attempt to hoist the African over the head
of the Caucasian, is to drag down the white
man to the level of the negro, rather than
to raise fae negro to the plane of the white
man. More than this, they know that to
make the negro the ruler is to arouse the
instincts of race, and to excite the white
mea to fight desperately to save their people
from political and national extinction.
Thc Radical cannot overcome the laws of
nature, even with the help of Congressional
legislation. If the issue is made squarely
in the South, between white man and black
man, the mass of the white Radicals will
fall away from their colored colleague?.
They will desert the alien race to join their
own. Radicalism will be forgotten when color
meets color in a struggle for existence, and
of the present Radical party there will be
nothing left hut a rump, consisting of a few
degraded whites and a rabble of ignorant
and fanatical negroes. The party has in it
no strength that can enable it to withstand
the shock of a civil collision between the
two races. This the leaders know; and,
because they have known it, they have
sought to stave of the coming of the con
test. But the thick heads and warped
fancies of the negro leaders have been too
much for them. The negroes are willing
that the. temple shall fall, provided that it
'whelm white and black in one common
ruin. The whites cry out that they must
and will be saved.
The disintegration of the Radical party
in South Carolina haB begun. With Whip?
per and Wright and Elliott as leaders, the
negroes will move rapidly on. The antag?
onism will grow greater from day to day,
and the inevitable end will be the final
downfall of black dominion in Sonth Caro?
lina, and the restoration of a government
which shall protect white and black alike,
and save the negro from that destruction
which a continuance of Radical rule
would make certain and unavoidable.
Tile General Council of the Roman
' Catholic Church.
The General Council which has just been
convoked by the Pope to meet at the Vati?
can, in Rome, on December 8, 1869, the
festival of the Immaculate Conception, is
the first that has been called since the
Council of Trent, which assembled at that
city on December 13,1545, and continued
in session, with various interruptions, till
December 4, 1563, a period of eighteen
years. The General Councils, called also
oecumenical, from a Greek word meaning
the habitable earth, are summoned by the
Pope, and, in the language of the paper
just issued, are composed of all the cardi?
nals, patriarchs, primates, archbishops
and bishops of the city (Rome) and of the
world, and are designed to adjudge all
questions of schism and heresy, belief and
discipline, which affect th? Universal
The Pope in person, or by legates, pre?
sides over the Council, and ail questions
are decided by a majority of the votes cast,
though at the Council of Constance, in
1414, .the members from each of the four
nations, Italy, France, Germany and Eng?
land, voted separately. General Councils
do not create new dogmas, but only inter?
pret and declare what was originally con?
tained in the Scriptures and tradition, and
according to the belief of the Roman Catho?
lic Church, are infallible concerning matters
of Faith. This infallibility does not ex?
tend to points of discipline, history, poli?
tics or science, nor to the grounds of their
decision, nor to collateral observations.
The Church of Rome only recognizes nine?
teen general Councils. The Conference of |
Prelates, held at Rome in 1854, and which
proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate
Conception, was not a Council, but only a
solemn ceremonial declaration of belief by
more than three hundred bishops, six hun?
dred and twenty high dignitaries of the
church having written letters to the Pope
testifying their approval.
SENATOR SUMNER recommends the elec?
tion of a colored, man-F. L. Cardcza-as
United States Senator from South Carolina.
This will encourage Whipper to push the
claims of the olored majority, which it is
hoped will be fully recognized._Cardoza
will be more at home by SUMNER'S"
than as the Secretary of State for South
Carolina,-which office has hitherto only
been filled by honorable and intelligent
white men. By all means let Cardoza be
