WHO WANTS A FLUE ESOINE?-We direct the
attention of fir? companies in the interior to
the notice of Chief Nathan, o? the Charleston
Fire Department, offering for sale a first class
hand fire engine. This is such a chance for
an advantageous purchase as seldom occurs.
TEE THEATEE.-The performance last night
passed off creditably as usual, though thegen
. eral desire to hear Mr. Adajas doubtless de?
tracted somewhat from^the fullness of the
house. The Vane Sisters seem to improve in
the spirit and excellence of their acting with
each appearance. There is a rich and varied
Saturday night bill of attractions presented for
this evening. See advertisement.
WIDOWS' HOSTE.-Tho ladies in charge of
the Widows' Home gratefully acknowledge the
receipt of forty-two ($42) dollars for the bene?
fit ot that institution from the "Phoenix Rifles,"
through Captain F. H. Cart. Also, a donation
of stationery, 4c, from Mr. Hiram Harris. A
handsome donation of lamps from Mr. Paddon,
and pi o vision s from friends in Orangeburg.
THE CHARLESTON LINE OF STEAMERS.-The
Baltiinoro Sun of Thursday says : "The trade
between Baltimore and Charleston has increas?
ed to snob an extent as to render the owners of
tile lino of steamers between the two ports
justifiable in dispatching a steamer every five
days- The Maryland being absent on a for?
eign voyage, the Carroll, Captain Hudgins, has
-been put on tho linc, and wiU sail from Boyce's
.wharf at four o'clock P. M. to-day."
AN OLD FIKM;.-The firm of Edderton &
Richarde, whoso business announcement we
publish in another column, though dating back
its origin to 1825, has commenced operations
for the fall and winter season with all the ener?
gy and tact for which it has been distinguished
in the past. The front of its establishment,
No. 32 Broad-3treet, has lately been handsome?
ly renovated, and they have recently added to
their stock a complete assortment of cloths
and cassimcres of every description, which
they offer to make up into suits at order, at
prices lower than market appraisement. A
* sight of tho novelties in their line, which they
\w are now displacing, will well ropay a visit to
HOMEOPATHr.-There are thirty-six hundred
and thirty-seven homeopathic practitioners in
the United States, of which number New Eng?
land" bas five hundred and eighteen. There
-are sixty-one homeopathic societies, of which
three aro national, two aro sectional, sixteen
are organized by States, and forty are of a local
character. There are seven colleges-at Phil?
adelphia, Cloveland, New York, Chicago, St,
Louis and Boston. There are dispensaries, in?
firmaries and hospitals in fourteen cities, in?
cluding Washington. In Michigan the Su?
preme Court han ordered a mandamus to bo
issued commanding the regents of the State
University to show cause why they do not obey
the provisions Of the act of 1865, which estab?
lished a chair of homeopathy in the medical
departments. The regents refuse to carry
out the law, oe the ground that the Legislature
has not the power to regulate the management
of the University.

By carly transplanting, the bolls would begin

REMARKS OF GENERAL JAMES SI V. ONS
FORE THE GERMAN DEMOCRATIC CLU1
MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 12. 1868.
Upon bo ng being introduced to the C
General Simons said :
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Ger;
Democratic Club of Charleston :
It hajfciv.'u mo groat pleasure to accept
invitation of TOTO distinguished Presiden
addreira you th?8 evening. The ktud and gt
fying terms in which he couched his invita
have given me the liveliest satisfaction. Yt
bo said that the "Germans of Charleiton
for years been my attached friends and eui
admir?is,"' I might have supposed that th
cords sprung from that consideration
friendship which he has personally felt for
for many years, and which it hus been my pi
and pleasure to reciprocate >vith ?nc
esteem; but I have had' ao many substau
proofs of the confidence and estimation of y
people extended, not only to me, but to
family, and rank so mauy of them among
clientage and patrons in the arduous strugf
of my professional career, that 1 take this
portunity thus publicly to declare my thai
and gratitude, and 1 will be more than rewa
ed if anything I can say on this occasion \
afford you entertainment or instruction.
lt would ba no disparagement to any peor
European or American, for a speaker to <
clare his prido and satisfaction to have tho i
portnuity to address Germans, aud thc sons
Germans in their adopted country. That p>
pie are well worthy of the high st consult:
tion, of whom a learned and distinguished h
terian has said, in speaking of tho Hom
view of them in their eariy hi tory, that
"Valor wa? tho crace of their men, and
Chastity tho virtue of their women "
And in later times, as civilization advanc
aud the ruder age gave placa to the cultiv?t]
of tho arts of peace and the maintenance
social order, it is co disparagement to t
greatest of modern nations to say that no
have s ur passed the Germans tu the arts a
sciences, in music, paiuting, poetry, proso. h
tory or philosophy-for in all these varied t
partments the German schools have th
masters, who, if they eau be equalled, hu
not been outstript in glory and renown.
But the occasion requires that I sbou
more particularly refer to the political views
tne Germans. So early aa when tho Hom
historian, Tacitus, wrote*of them, ho rcprcsci
ed that their "ail-absorbing and engrossii
passion was for liberty." It is said that th
"scorned restraint, considered independen
as the most precious of all things, and wei
therefore, ready to give up lifo rather than li
When Europe threw off tho shackles of t
Feudal system, the idea of Dem tracy-that
to say, the participation by the people in tu;
own government-fouud its eradlo in German
The division of the municipal community ia

partment, the Legislativo Department, coi

Teutonic origin, and iu the early stages
their existence were only found in those cou
ties which were oe JU pi? d by the posterity
Teutonic tribes-at least, 6uch is the creel
given to them by one of their great historian
It is not surprising, then, that so many
that nation, in the revolution of European a
fairs, restlesa under tho slow progress of hi
ropean ideas towards tho proper particip?t?.
by the people iu tho administration of gover:
mont, should have sought tho shores of th
country, the character and elements of the p
litical institutions of which were in uiison wil
those principles that originated among the
own ancestors in the earliest period of the
On the other hand, it may well be a matti
of surprise that the people of this couuti
should ever have countenanced a policy whic
would have exe 1 uded from their territory, arnon
other foreigners, that people who were th
prepared, os it were by their history and oi
ganization, to fraternize and assimilate wit
the very elements on which our whole politic:
structure was founded and upreared.
such, then, it seems to me, aro tho politic;
characteristics of the Gorman people who hav
sought citizenship and domiciliary residene
in this country by adoption; and it is no mor
than the merest justice to say of them that, i
addition to these political tendencies and eec
foments, in addition to the education and train
ing not only in letters, but in tho arts of life
in which they havu boen reared by thc pecu
HOT, social and educational system prevuilmj
in various German States, they superseded ;
society, thrift, industry and public spirit, am
a love of law and order which not only maki
them good citizens, but contribute to tue am
pie development of all the natural rosourecs o
the communities of their adoption.
In the great divisions, tuen, Of thc portie;
which agitate this country, on what side woul<
the Germans naturally turn their eyes ?
In tho first place, I will allude to a very deli
cate subject, and in my apprehension tho mos
difficult of the complex and impenetrable pro
blem which is before ns. How can the Ger
man, iu this country, with sjch au inheritanci
of political sentiment ana tendencies, irater
nize with a party who insist on a probation o
five years' residence in this country-a rcnun
cktion of all allegiance to any and every for
eign prince, potentate, state br sovereignty
an intelligent, comprehending aud ardent "ap
preciatiou and affection for tho Coustitutioi o
the United States, and judicial proofs in i
court of record of all these things, beforo i
German can be naturalized and accepted as t
citizen of the United ?tatos; and yet, that same
party at the same time shad, b\ one word, bj
one stroke of the pen, by a simple ukase ol
despotic power, in utter defiauce of that verj
constitution, and in repugnance to tho mani?
fest natural sense and instinct vt tho European
and American race, elevate to citizenship aud
perfect equality a whole race who do not, as a
mass, possess a single qualification so rigidly
exacted from the foreigner.
Secondly, I have shown you that tho Teu?
tonic race wero tho first who conceived the
idea of political "estates," in the establishment
ot pol.tical constitutions, or guvennnents. lt
is proper to explain what is meant by the tenn
estates. "Estates are thoso political bodes
which partake, either directly or by represen?
tation, in tho government."
Thus in many European nations thc king,
the nobility, thc clergy, thc people, and among
those last, in somo ?States, sub-divisions, fur?
nish apt illustrations.
In this country we have no ' estates" in gov?
ernment;'but wc consider that all power ema?
nates from the people-and in this doctrino I
??ive my hearty concurrence-for 1 hold it as a
iogma that the people in a welt organized rep?
resentative government are capable of govern?
The government, however, must be divided
uto distinct departments, which, I have al?
ready said, in this country are, by the constitu?
tions of tho several States, tho Bxecnttve. tho
Legislative, consisting of a Senate and House
jf Representatives, and the Judicial depart?
These are indispensable foi the purpose of
mutually checking each other, and tims crea?
ting a balance of power between them, and
aercin is the parallel of tho aneicut German
The party now in power have broken down
Ibis division, and seek tu vest the wholo power
>f th?, government in thc hands of the Legisla?
tive department, and chiefly in tue House of
Representatives. This fcuus them now be?
muse they have a vast majority iu the H nisi?;
ndoed, a large majority in tho'Senate also. lu
his endeavor, President Johnson exercised
lis executive and constitutum. power wisely
md patriotically to check and res tram them,
lt was necessary to get rid of him.
They impeached him on trivial pretexts,
lone of which could bo sustained; and even
;hcir own party shrank hum thc abortive Of?
lox.*. Senators w *o fouud, bo it sa d to their
jwn honor aud that pf thc country, whose
;onstitutional knowledge as awvers, and whose
;uaracters as men, were repugnant to tho exe?
H! lion of so greata political crim.:;*ond this
?rand party expedient fod bull-born, from its
)wn inherent hollowness ?ty 1 (ody.
In turn, they have a ta ked"the Supreme
Jourt. and made tha-. groat body hang up their
udgmeuts in suspense.
All this concentrates power in ono depart
uent of the governtnoat against ibo very thco
.y of the constitution and its express laiigua?o,
iud in defiance of the histoiy and practice of
ne State iu the golden ago of tho republic;
ind if they succeed iu the approaching clec

lie constitution be practically overthrown, and
in autocracy set up. which mil proc.ed ac
lording to the wdl of tho singlo head of thc
Either of these political conditions is prc
tiseiy what the intelligent n:e:i to whom I now
iddress myself wished to avoid in their own
tons try. when they nought thc security ?nd
?berty of.-. representativo government on this
nile of the Atlantic.
It appears co mo, therefore, that it is utterly
nconsistent with his education training anil
?ganization, and with his hope of enjoyment
if republioan liberty, that the German shall
Jjy himself with the Republican party. His
only sympathy with tho party would bc in the
name; but by a strmgo perversion of term?,
the name of republican, which is properly ap?
plicable to that condition of government in
which the people participate through their
representatives, chosen by themselves, and
from amongst themselves, is applied to a party
who wish to strengthen and consolidate thc
government, and by concentrating all power in
a singlo department, escinde thc peoplo Irom
all representation or participation, and over?
throw ail restraints upon uncontrolled power.
Tho obvious result of this disposition of the
powe: of the government would bc to create
privileges, to he enjoyed by a few, to the ex?
clusion of tho many." Thc foreshadowing of
this is now to bc seo? in I ho fact that tho men
who. daring thc lalo war, have accumulated, in
thc Northern States, fortunes so immense as
to exceed thc wealth of European princes nnd
nobility, array themselves on tho sub of the
party now in power. 1'hey have grasped into
their own hunda, by their contracts and .specu?
lations duriue; thc wa-, millions and hundreds
of millions of the public securities, and li >!d
thom free of tax. whilst all the burthens of thc
?mu.onso taxation and expenses of tho govern?
ment fall upon the yeomanry, and laboring,
and poorer classes of our people.
By way of illustration, it appears,, from an
article in the last number of the American
Law Eoviow, that ot.c person of immense
wealth h d obtained the contracts of almost
1 a.l the croat thoroughfares lea linc: from New
York to the West. Bosuminc: with thc Harlem
Hoad, ho had taken possession of tho linden
River, and finally of tho Now York Cent al,
and was stretching out his hand6 to grasp the
Ene." Hero ho encountered another great le?
viathan of the ocean of manv, who, to rcsii-t
him, actually len* to the Enc "Road $3,300,000
in cash, and bv this means armod himself with
fifty-eight thoosai.d ot tho shares, vhich, by
throwing them at once on tho market in Wall
street, he was enabled, by one cou|), to depre?
ciate tho slock lifty per cent, by which it ia
said "ho largelv increased his woalth, and won
great glory on Wall-street."
Again, it is rumorodthat al a late Republican
meeting in New York, the president and twen?
ty-five vicc-nrosidents of tho meeting together
owned S1130 OOO e-00.
What pc ?er mna? bc had "vcr a irovemmont
vested in an autocracy, W hi th" hands of a
lew managers, in other words, in a singlo de?
partment, by creditors, who hold in their hands
tho hundred's and thousands of millions of thc
public debt ?
Before the var the whole civil and military
list of tho government. as achniaiat red by tho
Democratic prrty, did not exceed $80.000 OOO;
and yet tho peoplo, shocked even nt these .mor?
mons figuics. watched with slooploss and jeal?
ous vigilance the conduct of these officials, and
constantly feared thc corruptions which tho
disbursement of this great revenue misfit en?
gender. But thia immense sum falls into the
merost insiirnificanco whon you reflect ih.it Ihe
end cf thc fiscal year. 3t) h Juno Inst. $160,
003,000 had not fully met thc demand of tho
gc verumcut for tho year. 1 hero niu-t be cor?
ruption in all governments; none can bo en?
tirely free from it; and there can be but ono
effectual chock-that is bj' dividing and isolat?
ing tho various departments of tho iiowrn
ment in such away as that each will bc a check
and restraint on thc other.
There is virtue in a people, even whon their
rulers mav have none; and it thc peoplo cannot
bc represented by a sufficient number to in?
fuse their virtue, or, if they have noue, at least
to watch the conduct of their rulers and to bo
a check upon them, all hope of curbing corrup?
tion must be at an ond.
Ol all political engines, thc most powerful is
money; and if such be its power in itself, how
much"will it bc multiplied when tho sword is
thrown into tho scale. Concentrate thoso. two
elements in tho hands aud contnl of u, few,
consolidate tho power over the 8tates of thi i
Lnion m a cortralizod head, and American lib?
erty will soon become thc "fading frabric of a
I havo thus selected iheso two grounds on
which, it appears to me, that it wouid bc in?
consistent with German ideas and German
education to harmonize with thoso who would
pursue a. pokey in absolute antagonism to their
Tho love of liberty demands equality and
jastico OD tho ono hand, and security fonts
enjoyment on tho other. In tho grouud just
suggestod I have shown you how uttorly un?
equal aud unjust that poiicy is, which discri?
minates botween the foroigner and tho inferior
rico in this country, in favor of the latter and
against tho foreigner. Were I disposed to
agitate thc paseio i* of men in this canvass,
instead of confining mysolf to sum rifluctions
as involve thc peace and tranquillity of thc
country, I tvould characterize this discrimina?
tion, not only as unjust, but as an insult to tho
character, industry and cora."rohension of the
foreign r. who seeks a home, by adoption, in
this country, and were I a foreigner, it appeara
to me that myjudgmont and inv sentiments
on this subject would absolutely coincide.
Then, on tho great governmental qu stion
which lies at thc very ioot and fountaiu ot re?
publican representative liberty, I cannot per?
ceive how tho intelligont German, from the
peculiar structure and preparation which Iiis
people bring from homo to this country, cati
hesitate to reject that political policy "which
would surround him by tho very evils and
errors which he encountered exile to avoid.
In conclusion, allow mo to say that I am re?
joiced to see my German fellow-citizens arous?
ed, aud sensitive for the preservation of the
principles of the Constitution and the Union of
the groat country of which they voluntarily
sought to bocorao citizens by adoption.
I believe that thc Gorman clement in this coun?
try has,and will continuo to have, a greit part in
common, not only with other welcome foreign?
ers, but with tbe nativocitizm, in the develop?
ment of tho future grandeur and power of tho
American States. And thc time will come
whon their Germanic-American posterity will
look back, with slowing pride and pleasure, to
that period m tho history of America whon tho
German patriot sousrht our shoros for tho
homo and country of his adoption.
Accopt, my friends, my grateful thanks for
thc uniform kiudness and confidence which
you havo manifested to mo aud min^ tor so
many years; and lot mo assura you that it will
always be a grateful duty and pleasure to me
to promote your prosperity and happiness.
