EIGHTEEN CENTS A WEEK
TEE NEWS FOR THE CAMPAIGN
GREAT INDUCEMENTS TO CLUBS.
Tha importance of the great political con?
test upon which we have now fairly entered
renders tho dissemination among the people
of sound political views and accurate and ear?
ly information of the progress and incidents
of th? 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 ?nd un?
flagging support to the candidates of the
-National Democracy-SETJIOUE and BLAIR. A
triumph of the Radicals ?ill result in the
utter desolation and ruin of the South, and
the placing bf an ignorant and brutal race in
all positions and places of honor and trust, to
the exclusion of the white race. The govern?
ment must be wrested from the thieves and
plunderers who now have control of it, and
power placed in the hands 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 is only necessary that the peo?
ple should be thoroughly informed to accom?
plish this, and TEE NEWS will be an admirable
means of diffusing tbiB imormaiion. In order
to place the paper within the reach of all, we
have adopted a scale of. reduced rates of. sub?
scription for the four months covering the
Presidential canvass, and offer besides peculiar
inducements for the formation of clubs. We
are determined that THE 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
o?tution do their duty by extending its circu?
lation, its labors can be made powerfully effec?
tive for good. We appeal, then, to our readers
to examine our remarkably low terms, am" go
to work with a will to get up large clubs for

PROSPECT 07 WAS IN EUROPE.
EOKDfl?, September .1.-The possibility. oi
.war oh the Continent ie more andmore dis?
cussed by the leading European journals. The
opinion generally expressed ls that Prussia,
- though ready for war, reilly desires the con?
tinuance of peace, brit t.lat to. Austria and Bus
. aia peace is indispensable, and that the French
Emperor is now undoubtedly prepared for con?
flict, but his policy is uncertain.
The Liberal, of Toulouse, says Marshal Neil,
who is on a visit to that city, told the Council
General that the army was animated by the
beet spirit; its armament was complete; the
arsenals were fud of material, and the financial
resources of the empire were inexhaustible,
and, compared with other powers, France alone
was equally ready for peace or war.
K Some people think the necessity of diverting
the discontent of certain classes io France
may cause the Emperor to adopt a warlike pol
icy. ' They say the election,' by so large a ma?
jority, of the Liberal candidate, M. Golvy, in
the department of the J uria, the manifesta
tioiis of general disaffection on the part of tho
students of the medical schools and univer?
sities in Paris, the great success of "La Lan
terne," and the deep, wide-spread indignation
at its suppression, are signs of the public tem
per, sufficient in themselves-to alarm the Em
peror. - . .
Add to these circumstances the expense of
keeping an abnormal armament on foot, and
the encouragement to war offered by the suc?
cess of the past war, and there is reason, the
.people say,?a expect- a war in the autumn or
spring. Corroboration of these views is sought
ina recent-loading editorial in the Cons ti Lu
. tionel, urgi-jg tho claims of the Empress Euge?
nie I? the Regency. It is argued that such
claims as these would not be put forth at this
time were it not anticipated that the Emperor
might have to lead an army and be exDosed to
the perils of the field.
On. the other hand to offset these fore?
bodings, there are official pledges of peace
daily made, the advice officially given to capi
talists to act as if assured of peace, and the ar?
gument so frequently urged by the French
Government that the very completeness of the
armament is a guaran te 3 of peace. Recent
and midden changes of feeling on the Bourse,
and the variations in rentes, are explained as
the results of the alternate ascendency of the
In a public speech at Marseilles, M. Belvie
assured his hearers that the polioy of France
was for the preservation of peace. The Em?
peror, he said, would guard it without am?
munition and without weakness, and the mili,
tary precautions taken by the Government
wonld make peace sure.
THE SECOND INTEBNATTONAL TA CHT BACE.
LONDON, August 31.-It is announced to-day
that Captain Baldwin, of the American vacht
Sappho, has challenged the yacht Aline", and
that the challenge has been accepted. The de?
tails of the race have not yet been agreed upon.
The Cambria, which came in first in the recent
race around the Isle of Wight, has gone to
Spain, and will not return for some time. Bald?
win has, therefore, challenged the Aline, which
was second in the last race, and came only two
minutes behind the Cambria.

PARIS, August 81.-Girgenti, the special en

that the object of hi3 mission is to bring about
an agreement with the Emperor that, in the

description, and which it is reported are

whereas, said proclamation attributes other vi?
olations of the public peace to the people of the
State in general, and makes no discrimination
such as would have been warranted by the
facts of tho case; and, whereas, it is well known
that all these disorders proceed from negro or?
ganizations, headed by a few white and colored
men, who, by their incendiary harangues, are
inflaming the minds of the negro population

THE BANE OF THE STATE BILL-THE VETO MES?
SAGE-HOW IT WAS SUSTAINED-THE SPEECH?
ES-CHOICE SPECIMENS-BLOOD WILL OUT
A DEFENCE OF SOTTTH CAROLINA BY A COLORED
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, September 1.-The first event in
the House to-day was a heavy speech fro m
Whipper, negro, in favor of the bill to close the
operations of the Bank of the State. He replied
specially to Jackson, the little person who
spoke yesterday, and said that it ill became
one of his profession to criticise so generally a
legal opinion, about which be might well be
presumed to know nothing, as in fact his
Bpeach fully showed. As for the cry about the
Confederate debt it was all raised for effect,
md for hie port he was not afraid to go bet?re
ais constituents, who, he thought, had com?
bon sense enough to understand the question,
ill of them not being ministers.
Thia speech seemed to frighten off any more
debate, and notwithstanding a desultory fili?
bustering operation, the bill finally passed to
i third reading, a test vote taken showing
ifty-six in favor of the bill, to thirty-five
The next event was the debate on the Gov
ira or's veto of the bill altering and amending.
:hu charter of the City ot Charleston and pro?
viding for a municipal election. As indicated
n my telegram, the veto had caused consider
ible feeling, the movers of the bill being very
nuch disappointed and chagrined, and the op?
ponents of the bill strengthened by a large
lumber of t hose who had voted for the bill be?
fore, but who had caught at the idea express
id in the Governor's veto that tho bill favored
Charleston more than the reit of thc State, and
heir local prejudices being aroused, were now
letermined not to grant Charleston any extra
avors, and therefore not to vote for the bill.
The ball was opened by a speech frc m De?
farge, colored member from Charleston, who
laid that although he was fully aware that the
rote he was about to cast would ba at tbe ex
>ense of his popularity at home, yet he was
breed by his honest convictions to voto against
he bill, and to sustain tho veto for the reasons
tated therein. He explained, at some length,
be reasons which led him to believe that the
?ill was not only unnecessary, but impolitic,
nd submitted his argument in writing to bo
pread upon the journal.
Ransier, colored member from Charleston
eplied in a speech, chiefly remarkable for the
xtraordinary ground which he took, that as
he constitution provided that au elector who
tad resided in a county sixty days could vote
t any election in that county, th ereiore all
lectors residing the required sixty days in
ny part of the County nf Charles ton had a
onstitutional right to vote in the City of I
Bosemaj, colored member from Charleston, .
allowed on the samo side, and took the i
round that the bill was a measure demi nd jd
y party necessity. The large Republicm ma- ;
)ri ty of Charleston, he said, were under the j
oncrolof a minority; a minority that did not i
esitate to use any measures, however low or '
icon, to prevent the Republicans having that :
hare in the city government and its benefits :
) which they were justly entitled. He com
lained that they were not employed on tho
ublic works, and were prevented from using ]
loir just political rights. His speech was
itter, but free from the coarse vituperation 1
lat usually characterizes the harangues of
ie ?abidRadicals, black and white. j
Jenks (white), the papa of the bill, follow- i
] on the same side of course, and made a j
peech as heavy as himself and as nninteiest
Purvis, colored member from Lexington, re- 1
liod to Jenks, saying that although he knew J
ow dangerous it was to tread upon such i
round, yet he waa not afraid to declare that 1
1?re weie a few sound men left yet who did j
Dt believe in legislating altogether for tho I
ike of party. He then called attention to the '
ords of the veto where it alludes to special !
gislation, and by dwelling on the fact that this |
ill was giving an election to Charleston when I
tey did not need an election there any more j
ian in Columbia, or any other town or county |
i the State, succeeded in arousing the feeling i
[?jealousy which prevails among the up-coun- 1
y members against Charleston, aud thus se- j
ired the defeat of the bill.
Burrell James, uneducated colored member
om Sumter, next spoke in opposition to the ?
ill and in support of the veto. His style is j
roll, his language ridiculous, and his entire .
^consciousness of his own deficiencies rc- i
freshing. I acknowledge my inability to give
a correct idea of his whole speech, bit the fol?
lowing are a few of bis expressions: 'It seemt
like de peopls uv Charleston suffer more dan de
rest uv us because dey are nearer do tea coast.
De speaker which bab jus taken bis seat, il
seem to me, from de Charleston menbers, say
dat all dere civilized men hab been 'lected tc
come up here, and dey ain't lef nufin behind
but savages. I tink de peoples of Sumter ie
suffering, and dat de law ought to rsquira dal
an election be held dere. As de veto nv de
Guberner hab said, of de election vere provi?
ded generly fur de whole State, tnere is not
one genelman on dis floor what would hab Imi?
tate one moment ter vote fur de bill I hope it
will pass j is as de Guberner hab vet?ed it."
Lee, McKinley and Boseman, allcolored, of
Charleston, spoke for the bill afttr this, and
Boseman called the previous cuestior to
prevent an}' more speaking on the othei ide,
but the Governor's veto and the apeechee of
DeLarge, Purvis and Burrell James had killed
the bill. Instead of haying the requisite ma?
jority of two-thirdj in its favor to enable it to
pass over the veto, it actually had a majority
against it. The voce standing ou the passage
of the bill, ayes il, nays 43.
In the Senate, the proposition of Nash, Max?
well and Wimbush, all colored, to idd J. S. G.
Richardson, the late State reporter, to the com?
mission to codify the laws, brouzht forth an
expression 'rem Jillson to the effect that
somebody had evidently beon about with an
axe to grind. Nash replied, sarctstically, that
it wa3 very evident from the bil itself, that
somebody did have an axe to grind, and that no
less a person than the chairman of the com?
mittee that reported the bill. Hie was already
a judge, and now he wanced to make himself
commissioner to codify the laws.
The discussion on this subject lasted till the
adjournment, but an episode that occurred is
worthy of mention. In the course of the dis?
cussion some carpet-bagger made an assertion
that South Carolina was always behind the age
in her laws. This raised the dander ot Rainey,
I colored member, who at once launched into a
? panegyric of the legal system of the State, pay
I ing a glowing tribute to her judiciary, and
declaring that, with the exception of her slave
laws and negro code, South Carolina had a
system of law which, for wisdom, liberality
and enlightenment, would compare favorably
with that of any State in the Union. Blood
will out if it is mixed.
I forgot to mention in its proper place the
significance of the resignation of Lewie, of
Lexington, from the House. He came here a
Radical, and has resigned disgusted.

i To the Editor of the News :
, COLLETON DISTBIOT, September 1.-The good
work goea bravely on in old OolleLon, and De?
mocratic Clubs are springing up in every neigh
; borhood. Before the election in November
? the white citizens of this district will be a unit
for Seymour and Blair. Apathy and indif
' ference have been set aside, and In their place
i have sprung up activity, and zeal, and en
1 thusiasm. The white people are thoroughly
alive to the momentous issues involved in the
coming contest, and, in one solid phalanx, will
1 vote the Democratic ticket. It is not so easy
? to decide what the colored man will do. The
truth is, as a general thing, he knows not him?
self what he will do. The "Hon." C. C. Bowen
held forth to the poor deluded colored people
at George's Station last Friday. He had a
slim attendance though. He indulged in the
, usual Radical twaddle, and was variously re?
ceived with applause and hisses.
On last Saturday a large meeting of the citi?
zens of Round 0, St. Bartholomew's Parish,
was held at lleetze's Church, to form a Demo?
cratic Club. Captain Archibald Campbell oc?
cupied the chair; Stobo Perry, Esq., was secre?
tary. R?solutions denning tue objects and
purposes of the Club wore introduced and
adopted. Patriotic speeches woro made by
Captain Archie Campbell, Captain William
Godfrey, Colonel Robert Campbell, and Wash?

was put in working order by the election of the
following permanent officers:
Dr. E. N. WILLI ?MS. President.
ALLEN WILLI?, vice-President.
s lu BO PERKY. Secretary.
BENJAMIN WILLI-*, Treasurer.
And so the work goes on. Colonol Campbell

DEATH OF A PBOMINENT NEW ORLEANS EDI
TOB.-We have already noticed the death of
Mr. W. H. C. King, ohier editor of the New
Orleans Times. He died on Thursday last at
Pass Christian, Mississippi. His disease was
an incurable cancer on the face. The New
Orleans Picayune says:
Mr. King was a native of Pennsylvania, born
October 23d. 1824, and had consequently
reached nearly his 45th year. Ho had a robust
constitution and uniform good health in most
respects. Had not thia disease mysteriously at?
tacked him and eaten out of him his hie, he
seemed a year ago to have before him as many
years as he has left behind. Mr. King was a
?rioter by profession, and must have come
ere fifteen or eighteen years ago. He worked
as a compositor for a long time on the Pica?
yune, and went thence to the Crescent to be its
foreman, in which position he remained until
that paper was suppressed under Butler. His
energy and persevering character, and his
good management and capacity as a printer,
caused him, when the Times was established
in this city in 1864, to be made a partner in
and soon to be tbe chief manager of that news?
paper, whose great success and widespread
influence rendered him so well known through?
out the country. - To.vards the close of his life,
Mr. King was received, by baptism, into the
bosom of the Roman Catholic Church, and
died io the midst of its consolatory hopes. He
baves a wife and several children,' with whom
we heartily condole in this, their affliction.
WHAT KILLED THE GBECIAN BEND."-The
stooping posture, styled the "Grecian Bend,"
renewed by the watering place fashionables
this season, is not practiced as much as it was.
We hear from Saratoga that it has been killed
off there quite effectually by satire and bur?
lesque. John G. Saxe, the poet-punster, who
has been summering at Saratoga and writing
letters to the Boston Post, first got the laugh
on tho fashion by calling it the "Colic Stoop,"
and recommending the essence of peppermint
as a remody; but the quietus was put lo it by
the work of a clever German Silhouettes artist
named Schmidt, who made such droll, yet
truthful representations of the ladies affected
by'the "bend" that all Saratoga was in a roar
of laughter, and his silhouettes went off like
hot cakes for fifty cents each. The ladie#re
moustrated and the hotel keepers attempted to
stop his busy scissors, and succeeded, but the
photographers reproduced his pictures abd
they sold by thousands, doing the business
for the Grecian Bend most effectually. Saxe
says of this absurd fashion :
"I Bee that a writer in the Now York Times
defmds the usage in question on the assump?
tion-sfim ground enough, ono would say,
granting it to bo true-that it is the samo
thing as the 'Grecian Bond' of thirty years ago,
which originated (so he tells us) with a cer?
tain grateful English Duchess several genera?
tions before. However charming her grace
may have been in spite of an affectation of this
sort, the real origin of the 'Grecian Bend' is as
patent as its adoption by fashionable women is
ridiculous. Ladies who have justly admired
the gracefully stooping posture of the Medician
Venus, and other nude figures, from the hands
of the Greek sculptors, have failed to reflect
that the curve in those beautiful forms is grad?
ual and unbroken by corsets at the waist; and,
above all, that their stooping posture is a natu?
ral, and therefore graceful, attempt to hide
what they can of their nakedness. 'Clothed
and in her right mind' no sensible woman will
think of imitating in public the shrinking stoop
of conscious indecency."
A COLONY OF ARMENIAN IMMTOKANTS FOB
THE SOUTH.-An Armenian gentleman from
Constantinople has arrived here with a view of
finding a location m the Southern States for a
colony of two hundred Armenian families. Be
yesterday addressed a number of his country?
men who are resident here. He alluded to tho
considerable body of Armenians at Constanti?
nople who entertained a desire to fiud a laud of
religious Uber ty, where they might settle, and
said that the American missionaries had point?
ed to the Southern ?States of America as the
promised land, and also as a region having a
climate similar to that of the countries border?
ing on the Mediterranean. This is a novel
and desirable element in the emigration to
America. In race, the Armenians ore Japhetic;
in faith they are Christian, but of a confession
that differs both from the Protestant and Cath?
olic, though it resembles the latter in many
respects. Though the Armenians have long
been subject to the Turks and Persians, they
are a people of remarkable enterprise and in?
telligence, with a valuable old literature and
many eminent scholars. They have in times
past established colonies in various parts of
Southern Europe, and they are numerous in
the cities of European Turkey. If the first
colony to this country prove a success, as we
trust'it may, we shall doubtless in time see
several thousand Armenians follow it from
Constantinople. Tney can find in Virginia,
youth Carolina or Georgia, localities that offer
them every opportunity for freedom, happi?
ness, health and pecuniary Buccess.-Ntw York
THE WICKEDEST MAN IN NEW YOKE has as?
suredly broken up his haunt of vice, whatever
else may be said of bim or his motive, or his
purpose* or intention. He put in his appear?
ance at the Howard Mission yesterday, and
after the service announced, in the presence of
the multitude, that his house (the Water
street dance house) had been closed on Satur?
day night, and, so help him God, it should
never be opened again. Ho expressed grief
for his past misdeeds, and a determination to
Live so that he might retrieve them. After his
place was closed at midnight of Saturday,
prayer meeting waB held in tho very room
where 60 many scenes of dissipation had taken
place. We give our word of encouragement to
John Allen. Now let him go to work with all
his energy and talent to do something to res?
cue and redeem those who are living the liv?s
of pollution in dens of degradation-New York

THE BICE CROP.-The high price of rice has
caused almost every planter in this >iistnct to
plant this grain, and there will be an abund?
ance of it produced. Mr. frederick Jones, a
planter near our town, has a most luxuriant
crop of rice on a piece of bay land, which is
supposed to be equal to the best low country
rice. Col. W. S. Mullins has fifty acres of his
rich back swamp in rice. Mr. James Watsi n
has a rice crop which is said to be as good as
that of Mr. Jones'. These are only a few
names which are mentioned to show that the
lovers of rice will be able next year to use it,
without paying the enormous price of twelve
cents per pound. It is a fact well proved, that
rice can be profitably made on tbe uplands of
the State. High land that produces not more
than six bushels of coin per acre, will produce
fifteen in rice_Marion Crescent.
