THE HEWS FOR THE CAMPAIGN
GREAT INDTTCEMENTS TO CLUBS
The importance ol'the great political con?
test upon which we have DOW fairly entered
renders the dissemination among the people
of sound political views and accurate and ear?
ly information of the progress and incidents
of the canvass, a matter of peculiar interest
and expediency. Every individual who has
any stake in the welfare of these Southern
States, should give an active, personal and un
flaggwg support to the candidates of the
National Democracy-SSEHODB and BLAIB. A
triumph of the Radicals will result in the
utter desolation and ruin of the South, and
tiie placing of an ignorant and brutal race in
all positions and places of honor and trust, to
the exclusion of the white raoe. The govern?
ment must be wrested from the thieves and
plunderers who now have control of it, and
power placed in the bands of a party pledged
to give peace to a distracted country, and to
make it a government for white men, and not
for negroes. It ls only necessary that the peo?
ple" should he thoroughly informed to accom
pUah this, and THE NEWS will be an admirable
means of diffusing thia information. In order
to place the paper within the reach of a IL we
haye adopted a scale of reduced rates of sub?
scription for the four months covering the
Presidential canvass, and offer besides peculiar
inducsments for the formation of ciaba. We
ar? determined that TBS NEWS shall be the
cheapest and best newspaper in the South.
Its blows will fall thickly, steadily and rapidly;
and if the friends of law, order and the Con?
stitution do their duty by extending its circu?
lation, its labors can be made powerfully effec?
tive for good. We appeal, then, to oar readers
to examine om* remarkably low terms, and go j
to work with a will to get np large dabs for
THE CEABXLESTON NEWS.

COLUMBIA, Aagast 19.-The business of the
day may be briefly summed up. Both bodies
assembled at twelve M. The Senate did noth?
ing of general interest except to postpone un?
til the next session tbe bill providing for the
relief of tbe Charleston and Savannah Rail?
road, and pass a few resolutions of a purely
personal and local character.
In the House, committees reported on the
following subjects : The preservation of the
records of Pickens and Oconoe Counties;" the
repeal of the charter of the Town of Hamborg;
a bill to aotborize a State loan; a bill to pro?
vide for the redemption of the bills receivable;
a bill to license certain parties to act as pilots,
and provide the terms on which they shall
hereafter act; and a bill regulating the election
of Presidential electors.
The bill preventing perBons doing business
under license from making any discrimination
on account of race or color was read a third
time and sent to the Senate. Whipper intro?
duced a bill establishing a health officer. The
position will probably be filled by Dr. Robert
Rev. Barrell James (colored,) of Sumter, of?
fered a concurrent'resolution, that "hereafter
all incorporated towns and villages in making
an appointment of a police force, shall make
the appointment without distinction to race
or color." Whipper objected to it Shrews?
bury moved that it be laid on the table. C. D.
Hayn o (all colored,) aeconded the motion, and
the measure was killed.
Tbe bill to provide for the temporary organi?
zation of the Educational Department, waa
taken up. It secures to the Superintendent of
Education $2500 per annum, and cost of trans
portation when travelling ; directs thefjobool
Commissioners of each county to make an
enumeration of all the children in the State,
between five and eighteen years of age ; and
requires a report of the number of schools of
every class, public and private, and all informa?
tion connected therewith. These thirty-one
School Commissioners are to receive $4 per day,
with the privilege of employing one or more
assistants with an extra outlay of $2 50 per
day. No limit is fixed to their labor. Whether
a man works a week or a month, or neither,
his own certificate to the fact unlocks the
treasury, to whatever amount he may choose
The debate on this question elicited the pe?
culiar desire which exists to provide as many
mon as practicable with paying berths bet?re
the ides of November. The machinery of this
department will be admirably adapted to the
ends in view, especially if the following addi?
tional section, offered as an amendment by
Bev. B. F. Jackson, should be adopted: "All
institutions of learning supported wholly or in
part by funds famished by tbe State, are here?
by tamed over to the supervision of the Super?
intendent of Education; and alt the public
schools Li the several counties, supported as
above specified, are hereby placed under the
direct supervision of the School Commission?
ers of the several counties,"
Whipper said he thought this a dangerous
section, and hoped it would be recommitted
with instructions. Even the Radicals were
doubtful of rushing so hastily into extremes,
and tbe bill, with amendment proposed, was
referred to the Committee on Education.
That very remarkable measure-a bill to
close the operations of the Bank of the State of
South Carolina-waa now pat upon its second
reading, and, in less than five min?tes from
the reading of the title, it became, as far as the
House was concerned, a law. The way in
which these bills are managed is very cari?os.
Their first reading is simply by the title. The
manuscript is now furnished to the printer,
that is, provided it bas received the approval
of a committee, and, io doe time, the bill is
sent back in print. The sergeant-at-anns
takes charge of it, and when the bill is called
np for action he distributes tbe same among
the members. It frequently happens that, be?
fore the bills are thus distributed, one, two or
three sections have passed their second read?
ing and are beyond the reach of the House,
without a reconsideration. No time is permit?
ed for examination into the merits of these
measures, and' thus, with indiscreet haste,
grave changes are made in the law of the
land-the Legislature being made the mere
oat's paw of the designing few who remain in
the back ground ont of sight and essay to con?
trol these erratic movements.
The bill to organize Circuit Courts received
its third reading, and was ordered to be sent
to the Senate.
A bill to redeem the bills receivable was
passed to a third reading. The bill is pub?
lished in another column.
In the Senate Parson Cain endeavored to se?
cure the passage of a bill incorporating the
Lougsh iremen'8 Protective Union. Air. Cor?
bin inquired of Cain what the object of the bill
was, bat the latter pretended not to be able to
state in detail. Wheo the subsequent discus?
sion brought oat the fact that these longshore?
men were the same crowd who had been the
cause of so much trouble, and (as one of the
senator's said) been pat down with General
Ganny's bayonets, Cain confessed that they
had been meeting in his church for six mouths
or more, and he could vouch for their peaceful
intentions. Cain's demagoguism did not serve
his purpose, however, on the present occasion,
and the bill was postponed for ten days.
There is a disposition on the part of scmo of
the members to finish the most important work
to be done and go home within two or three
weeks. This event may be hastened by the in?
ability of members to use their bills receivable
to present advantage. There seems to be a
determination among some of the citizens not
to recognize any money of the State signed by
the officers of the present government. Should
this prove true, the brokers will do a hand?
some business, and the members will find
themselves in an unpleasant financial predica?

-Tbe residence of Mr* Richard 8. Webb, in
the Fork of Black Biver, with all its contents,
save a few minor articles, was completely de?
stroyed by fire on Thursday night last. Wheo
the family awoke, the building was in flames,
and there was no time to rescue anything from
their consuming grasp. Cause of the fire un?
-The Marion Star says : "An unsuccessful
attempt was made last Saturday night to burn
the residence of E. J. Moody, Esq. Au old
house partially toro down, within eight or ten
feet of bia dining room, was set on fire about
three o'clock at night, and after the fire was
discovered, it was only by the manly exertions
of the freedmen on the premises that the resi?
dence was saved. The storeroom near by took
fire, and before tho flames could be extin?
guished tbe roof was consumed."
-One by one the carpet-baggers are coming
to grief. The Georgetown Times, of this week,
says: "Wm. L. Webb, of Rocky Hill, Connec?
ticut, a brother of Henry W. Webb, who figured
as a member of the Charleston Neuro Conven?
tion, and is now a member of the Legislature,
so-called, from this district, was arrested yes?
terday by Sheriff Carr for bigamy, on a com?
plaint made by bis wife in Connecticut. It ap?
pears that Webb was married to a worthy wo?
man in Connecticut in January, 1855; that for?
getful of that important fact, he contracted in
April last a marna c o with a clever yoong lady
of this district, and has since been living with
ber as his wife, well knowing at the time
of his second marriage that his first wife was
alive. Mr. Webb, the. accused, is a carpet?
bagger, who came to these parts soon after the
closu of the war to seek his fortune. He was
made a registrar of voters, and acted in that
capacity as long as there was anything to do
in that line. By proclaiming himself tbe friend
of the colored man, he was by them nominated
and elected one of the three commissioners for
this district. What effect this prosecution will
have on the discharge of the responsible duties
of his office, is left to tho future to disclose. In
default of sufficient bail he now occupies apart?
ments in the Georgetown jail."
THE STEAM PLOUGH.-This machine, as con?
structed by the English inventor, Fawkes, was
recently the s abject of some important experi?
ments at the Agricultural Society's exhibition
at Leicestershire, England. Thc steam plough
ia described as follows : A locomotive enirine,
with wheel tires twonty inches wide, stands at
one side of the field. At the opposite side
stands a moveable anchor which carries a hor?
izontal windlass wheel, four feet in diameter.
A similar wheel, with an arrangement for
clasping a wire rope stands horizontally under
the boiler of the engine. A steel wire rope
passes around these two wheels, and for a clasp
to its two ends it has a doable set of gang
ploughs or cultivator teeth, as the case may be.
One set of ploughs tarns a farrow to the right
ead the other to the left. Moving ia one di?
rection, one set of ploughs is ia work and the
other is elevated above the ground. Io re?
turning in the other direction their positions
are reversed. At the trial in England the
plough cut the sod ap to the depth of nine
inohes, and thoroughly scattered the soil at
the rate of one acre per hour. The price of
the entire apparatus is $3540 in gold, requires
the assistance of three men and two boys,and
takes a bite into the surface of the ground for?
ty inches wide.

A good deal of uneasiness has been observed
among the chief engineers of the Radical party
within the past three or four days. This un?
easiness is manifested in certain bursts of in?
dignation at what they denounce as the grose
mismanagement of affairs in the party by cer?
tain individu?is who are never named, but only
mysteriously hinted at. They have been heard
to remark that if the Republican ticket encoun?

The principal cause of their, anxiety at the

Statements of Grant s apathy in regard to
the great political issue and of his having dis?
cussed the effect his withdrawal from the Re?
publican nomination would have upon the for?
tunes of the party, or of bis having expressed a
desire to withdraw, have found their way to the
public; but they have invariably aroused a
storm of indignant denial, and brought forth a
multitude ot irate paragraphs in tue Radical
journals deprecating the growing mendacity
exhibited by the public press. In this manner
such statements bave been whitewashed over
and the courage of the unitiated faithful has
Bat where there is so much smoke there
must be some fire. The truth which forms the
groundwork of these rumors has been gradu?
ally leaking out, it is said, and will soon come
upon tho country with snch a volume of con?
firmatory evidence that it will defy every effort
to suppress it. I do not vouch for the truth of
these statements, bat there are those now in
this city who pretend to know that two or three
confidential consultations have been held at
Galena, 111., in which Grant and several of the
prominent leaders of the Republican party par?
ticipated. What mysterious influence operated
to send these learned doctors of Radicalism
into Illinois after the General is not known; bat
it is supposed that the before-mentioned re?
ports about Grant's withdrawal had much to do
with it. The result of these pow-wows, how?
ever, is that all the stones m regard to said
withdrawal of General Grant from the Presi?
dential contest are denied by authority. Grant
will not withdraw. He Ands that he cannot do
it. He may wish to' fly the course, bat he can?
not. But an understanding was arrived at dar?
ing these interviews on another important
point, which may prove interesting to the
country-Grant will run, bat if he is elected
Colfax will be President.
It cannot be definitely ascertained what rea?
sons General Grant has for wishing that the
Chicago Convention had met on the other side
of the river Styx before they dragged him into
the arena as a scapegoat to bear apon bis
shoulders the sins of the Radical party. Per?
haps he distrusts his ability to guide the ship
of State through the whirlpools and breakers
of party strife; perhaps he vieWJ the future
with prophetic vision, and can descry no visi?
ble signs of a Republican victory. Whatever
may be his reasons they are to him sufficient
to nullify all his ambitions longings for Execu?
tive authority. Hence his willingness to let the
Presidential mantle fall opon tne ever ready
shoulders of the smiling Mr. Colfax, by an early
reaignation of his office. Then, having raked
hu chestnuts out of the dre, like poor puss, he
will be permitted to nurse his burns in peace
NOMINATIONS NOT ACTED ON BX THE BERATE -
PASTIS AN LEGISLATION.
On Thursday last the President received
from the Secretary of the Senate the whole
budget of nominations which were not acted
upon by the Senate up to the day of adjourn?
ment. This proceeding on the part of the
Secretary is in accordance with a role recently
adopted by tho Senate, providing that if that
body shall adjourn or take a recebs for a longer
time than thirty days all nominations not final?
ly disposed of ebal! be returned to the Presi?
dent, and shall not be acted upon by the Sen?
ate at its next session unless renominated by
the President. By the working of this conve?
nient senatorial role every one of these nomi?
nations, eighty-four in all, is virtually rejected.
Daring the session the Senate succeeded in
wrecking the hopes of one hundred and twen?
ty-eight other applicants for civil offices, mak?
ing the grand total of rejections foot np to
two hundred and t iv elvo, or an average of over
one rejection per day. The failure of the Sen?
ate to act promptly upon nominations has ma?
terially retarded the execution of the govern?
ment business in many parts of the country,
and has added much to the embarrassments
of the President in providing for the collection
of the public revenues, and of guarding the
national interests abroad.
THE EPISCOPAL GENERAL CONVENTION.-The
Episcopalian and several other of the organs
of its church are beginning to speculate as to
the course of their approaching General Con?
vention. Three courses, it says, are open ti
that triennial gathering of the representatives
of the entire denomination, viz : "Either to
decide positively against the repeal of the dis
?tuted and obnoxious Tying canon, and ref ase
o revise the Liturgy and expurgate or explain
the expressions which teach baptismal regen?
eration and its related doctrines, or to decide
in favor of the petitions of the Low Church?
men, and do both ; or ignore the whole matter,
decide nothing, and go on as before. It says,
however, that either of the former courses will
be unsatisfactory to the party thus treated,
and the last course will ne unsatisfactory to
all." The Episcopalian is constrained not to
trust in the convention, bat in God alone. It
is known that petitions are m circulation, and
others are promised at the eleventh hour, for
the action of the General Convention in regard
to certain matters in dispute. The Church?
man of Connecticut thinks all difficulties will
be settled harmoniously, bat the Episcopalian
says there are vitally important differences
among the teachers and members in regard lo
the faith ; and adds : "There can he no peace,
no coalition. There may be, and is, toleration.
That is no more than all have bad to the ex?
tent of license. But the parties in our church
holding radically different views of the doc?
trines of the Gospel, of the Sacrament and of
the ministry cannot cease to express that dif?
ference, diverge more and more widely, and
approach their opposite to goals."

93- THE BODY RENEWED. -ACCORD?
ING to Physiologiste, the human body is renewed
once lu seven years. Every day, every hour, every
moment, the fleah, the cartilage, bone and muscle of
the frame are wasting away, and being impercepti?
bly replaced by new material. Health depends upon
the nature of that material, and whether it shah be
pure or diseased, full of vitality and elasticity, or
feeble and flaccid, depends mainly upon the action
of the stomach, In warm weather the waste of the
system ls very rapid, and if it is not as rapidly re?
paired by the great sustaining organ, the cons??
quence is deb'lity, emaciation and decay. It is,
therefore, of paramount Importance that the stom?
ach be kept in a vigorous condition at this trying sea?
son, and the safest, surest and best tonic that can
be employed for that purpose is HOSTET TEE'S
BITTERS. This incomparable vegetable stomachic
gives unwonted energy to the digestive powers, pro?
motes the conversion of the food into healthiul
blood (which is, ao to sp eat, the raw material of all
the solid portions or the body), sud thereby puts the
system in the best possible state of defence against
epidemic and other diseases. The strong require it
to keep up their strength; the weak, to reinvigorate
them. It consists of the purest of all diffusive stimu?
lants, charged with the juices and extracts of the
most genial roots and herbs, and ls a permanent re?
storative-not a mere temporary excitant. It acts
simultaneously upon the stomach, the bowels and
the liver, and ia the best known remedy for dyspep?
sia, biliousness, costiveness and general debility.

?-WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU ?
This ls the familiar question put to every m valid.
In many cases the answer ia, "I don't know exactly,
but I don't feel well." Look at the countenance ol
the man or woman who makes this reply, sad yon
will generaUy find that tho eyes are dull and lustre?
less, tho complexion sallow, the cheeks flaccid, and
the whole expression of the face dejected. Interro?
gate the invalid more closely, and you will discover
thit constipation,' the result of a disordered stomach
and a torpid liver, is at the bottom of the mischief.
