masses of marble are thus detached with the
smallest expenditure of manual labor.
-The Parisian velocipede has taken a new
form, and become aquatic. This latest idea
consists of two canoes connected by au open
frame-work, npou which is placed the seat of
the individual bold enough to risk himself upon
thia apparatus. His feet repose upon two ped?
als, to which are attached movable floats;
these close as the foot is drawn forward, and
open on its being pushed back against the
water. Water-proof boots are the indispensa?
ble accessories to an excursion upon one of
these inventions. w w
-The island of Hawaii is sinking, especially
towards the southeast. The subsidence has
been observed at various points and amounts
to from eight inches at Hilo, to six or seven
feet between Kapaho and Kalie. Trees whi^h
of course grew on dry land now stand in sever*
al feet of water, and rocky inlets which once
stood five feet out of water are now submerged.
The cause of this is supposed to be the rec nt
earthquake. Quite extensive measurements of
the present extent of this subsidence of the
island and the rate of ifs progress are now
-Switzerland is afflicted with a horrible epi?
demic disease, cretinism, which is a state of
idiocy, accompanied with an enormous goitre.
According to a careful census, recently takou
in the nineteen cantons, there were fcund 3431
cases of cretinism and 6258 cases of insanity.
As the population of the country amounts to
2,032,119 inhabitants, it follows that these
10,048 persons of weak mind givo the enormous
proportion of one mentally diseased person in
two hundred and two inhabitants, and even
this is behoved to be below the truth.
-The ordnance manufactured by the cele?
brated steel workers, tho Krupps, bas lately
been modified so as to produce much more
formidable results. Tho improvement, it is
stated, consists in the enlarging of thc cham?
ber in which the Artridge is lodged. The
cbaTge is to be double what it was, while the
ball remains at its former weight of two hun?
dred pounds. When tried side by side with
the nine-inch Armstrong, having a ball of two
hundred 'and twenty-seven pounds, the Krupp
gun, it is alleged, proved greatly the superior.
-The ex-King of Portugal is considered the
happiest man in Europe. He voluntarily laid
down the crown, and has never for a moment
regretted it. He is of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, a
kinsman of Leopold, and very mach like him,
except in ambition. He married the Queen of
Portugal, and on the majority of his son, ho
surrendered tho throne to him. He is very
much devoted to the fine arts, and has a spa?
cious palace filled with tho rarest productions
of the chisel and the brush. There he Uves at
his ease, or rambles about the streots of Lis?
bon smoking or chatting with every one he ? c
meets. He is a great favorite with everybody. f(
He is only fifty-two years of age, and has been
spoken of as a mutable person for the throne
of Spain. It would be a pity to mar so much
-The price of cigars iu the Havana market
are $500 per thousand for Celestiales, $300 for
Leopoldiuo3, $250 tor Senadores and Patri?
arcas, $100 for Imperiales, $00 to $75 for
Regalias, $45 for Londres, and $35 for Princi?
pes. The tobacco crop this yoar is somewhat
interior to that of 1867 ; the quantity is about
twenty-five per cent, short of last year's pro?
duce ; the price is fully twenty to twenty-five
per cent, dearer. Some of tho fine quality of
this year's crop will bc fitter than any produced
last year, but little or none of this class has
been worked yet. An extraordinary dullness
has existed in tho market, occasioned by the
high prices asked, the supposed inferiority of
the crop and absence of orders for cigars,
caused by the large stocks existing in tue
United Slates, Eugland and Germany. The
quantity of tobaeco shipped from Havana
since the iPt of January, 1868, is about 4,600,
000 pounds, of which about 2.700,000 went to
the United States.
THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 5,1868.
REGISTRATION for the Municipal election
begins at seven o'clock to morrow morning
and closes at five o'clock in the evening,
and will be continued O? Saturday and
Monday during the same hours. No person
who does not register on one of these three
iays can vote for Mayor and Aldermen.
We can, by working hard, elect the Citi
tens' candidates, and must endeavor to labor
in such a way that ~ur efforts shall produce
the greatest possible good.
The registration opens to-morrow, and it
is vitally important that we should register
?very voter favorable to the Citizens' party.
We have no narrow boundaries: no fine
listinctions. Every man who is desirous of
jiving Charleston a wise and economical
nunicipai government is a member of the
Citizens' party-whether he knows it or
lot, and whether he is white or colored
ind all such men should be promptly and
This cannot be accomplished without
.borough organization, and we hope that
he Working Committees in the different
Wards will be so large that they can lay off
?ach Ward, as in taking a census, and thor
jughly canvass every dwelling house in it.
We hav9 active men enough in the city who
ill be willing to put their shoulders to the
fvheel and help us out of the mire. They
ippreciate the necessity of victory and the
?eceBsity of untiring work during the few
lays that separate us from the day of elec?
tion. And if they will use their strength
broughout the city, deliberately and sys
ematically, with a thorough organization
ind division of labor, we shall show to the
veak-kneed and doubters that the Citizens'
>arty can register enough votes to make
PILLSBURY grieve that he ever attempted to
mlly the respectable people of Charleston.
REMEMBER that no previous registration
s worth a straw. If you do not register on
o-morrow, Saturday or Monday, you can
tot vote at the Municipal election.
WARD 1. On Tuesday last you were beat
in by two votes. On Tuesday next you
aust beat by two hundred votes. You can
lo it if you will register every man.
To oar Noble Women.
We have as our standard-bearer in the
.pproaching battle a pure and blameless
nan, who is worthy to stand forth as the
hampion of a struggling and saddened
ieople; and it would be a happy omen of
ortune and success if we could enlist with
ts, in the momentous struggle, that unselfish
nthusiasm which, during four calamitous
mt glorious years, was the hope and the
.ride of the South.
Then the women of our State encouraged
he faint of heart, cheered the worn and
veary, filled the desponding with courage
md strength, and urged father and brother, i
on and lover, to valiantly do their duty, i
Che fight, then, was for this dear native
and, for that name-South Carolina !- 1
Lround which crystaiized the memories of
i hundred years of valor and honorable
pride. And our fair women, emulating the i
naids and matrons of song and story,
Aught by their own example the lesson of i
fortitude and perseverance, and with their i
own sweet lips quickened the faith of old ;
md young, who, 'neath the emblematic ;
jtsrry cross, went forth to meet the foe.
Our women were then our very life and
:oul. Dear for their passionate appeals,
iearer for their carelessness of self, dear
sst for the bravery with which they hid
their mortal wounds while soothing an?
other's pain. Nor did they pass unscathed I
though clad in the spotless armor of virtue
ind of truth. The cannon which roared
on Potomac and Rapidan found an echo in
heir throbbing breast; the sabres which i
iashed on the broad fields of Virginia were
reflected in their tear-dimmed eyes; for
svery ruddy stain which consecrated the
Southern soil there was a breaking heart
And yet our women did not quail; and in
he darker days which followed Appomat
ox were true and fearless still. They knew :
heir people and trusted themselves. There
.?as no compromise with wrong, no embrac
ng the weak and false for expediency or
rain. They were then, as ever, our own
lear, gentle women, and in this the moment

Women of Charleston ! where all else

people that it is their duty to work unceas?

explain to them what to their women will

as that which defeat will give. You can
do more by a word and a smile than others
can do by force of logic and grace of rhet?
oric. You can make it certain that every
one of your kinsmen shall do his duty as a
good and loyal citizen. You can insure
that Charleston shall not be sacrificed by
the recreancy of her own children.

Good Aews from Charleston.
The vote in this city at the Presidential
election on Tuesday last is another indica?
tion that we have not been over sanguine
in asserting that the citizens of Charleston
can, if they arc determined to do so, elect
their candidates for Mayor and Alder?
men. At the Presidential election the
Republican majority in Charleston was
1355, and the total vote for GRANT and
COLFAX was 515G. In this total were
included the votes of many hundred col?
ored men who live beyond the city limits,
but were registered in tho upper Wards for
the Presidential election. These outsiders
will not vote at the Municipal elections.
Then, again, many colored men, from a
sense of duty, voted for GRANT who, from
a sense of self-interest, will, at the Muni?
cipal elections, vote for the Citizens' candi?
dates. But, more than all, the vote for the
Democratic candidates on Tuesday was only
3801, and we know that large numbers of
our citizens did not go to the polls. With
all these disadvantages, the majority was
only a little more than thirteen hundred,
and we might as well doubt our own exis?
tence as doubt thut so small a majority
when the country negro vote is deducted
cannot, be overcome.
We say once more, that if all the
white men in Charleston, who have
the prosperity of their city at heart, and
desire to spare themselves and their fam?
ilies the blight of a lawless and vic?
ious administration, will but register and
vote, we can ele.-t our candidates by a de?
cided majority, even admitting that some
renegade Southerners do take heart of grace,
jump from the fence and vote the Radical
ticket. We can save the city; and the reg?
istration of the coming three days will tell
us whether it shall be done.
THE managers of elections for the Presi?
dential election will have charge of tho
municipal election which will be held on
Tuesday next. The registration and polling
places will be the same as for the Presiden?
WARD 3 You must do as well on Tuesday
next in the third precinct as you did last
Tuesday in the first and second precincts.
Register every man, and see to it that they
Our Future Aldermeu.
The ticket for Aldermen put forth by the
Citizens' Nominating Convention is rich in
every element of popularity and strength.
Every class of interest is fairly represented,
and the record and names of the nominees
will appeal with as much force to the col?
ored people as to the white voters of the
Merchants whose career is untarnished
by trickery or subterfuge, mechanics who
have made labor honorable by the success?
ful industry of a life time, citizens who have
already served the city indefatigably and
well, are grouped together in a common
cause. The warm and unselfish Irishman
stands by the Eide of the tenacious and
hearty German, and the shrewd and loyal
Scot stands shoulder to shoulder with the
trusted but silent Charlestonian; the whole
forming a solid phalanx of good men and
true, resolved to rescue the city from the
anguish with which it is threatened.
In the hands of these men, fellow-citi?
zens, Charleston is safe; with these men at
the council board, your property will im?
prove in value, your labor will advance in
price, and, uuder all circumstances, your
women and children will be free from insult
and from danger. Tney are not the mouth?
pieces of any clique or party; they are not
wedded to any one set of ideas or confined
to a worn and beaten track. Called by the
voice of their fellow-citizens into the aren t
of political life, they place themselves square?
ly and fairly before the public, sacrificing
for the good of the city their private wishes
and the profits of their calling.
Fellow-citizen?, wc have nominated our
Aldermen. Now, let us elect them !
No COLORED man should allow himself to
be deceived by the cry now being raised by
PILLSBURY, that a vote against him isa vote
against the principles of the Republican
party. This is not a party contest. It has
aothiDg to do with Re? ublicanisra, and no
:onnection with GRANT or SEYMOUR. This
is a contest to secure such a city govern?
ment as will enable the honest colored man
;o live and work in com.'ort, and the col?
ored men who support the Citizens* candi
lates only oppose PILLSBURY as a maD, as
in office seeker, and do not go back upon
^he principles of their national political

lamp must still burn. The adverse vote

like you. Gather your claus. See that

The following communication from the
Cbuirman of the Citizens' Nominating Con?
vention removes all doubt as to the eligibil?
ity of the Honorable H. D. LESESNE to hold
Municipal office. It is clearly the intention
of the State Consti:ution to disqualify from
holding office only those who are so dis?
qualified by Congress, and Congress does
not disqualify any one from holding office
which are neither Federal nor State. Mr.
LESESNE is undoubtedly eligible as Mayor
of Charleston, both under the Constitution
of the United States and of this State:
It having been rumored that Chancellor
Lesesne is disqualified for the Mayoral'y, tho
Nominating Convention of the Citizens' party
consulte! distinguished counsel, who have
given the decided opinion that the disqualifi?
cations under the fourteenth amendment of the
Constitution cf the United States apply only to
Federal and State offices, and not to Municipal.
Chairman Nominating Convention.
WARD G. You have done well, and will
do better. Bring up the men you have held
in reserve. Register our colored fellow
citizens of Ward 6, and you will see that
Tuesday next will tell a flattering tale.
WARD 7. Well done ! You have met the
enemy and they are yours. Show thc city
on Friday, Saturday and Monday, by your
registration, that we may count on you for
five hundred majority for LESESNE, the citi?
WARD S. The load of country negro
votes will not weigh you down on Tuesday.
Hard work, as you know how to work, will
carry the Ward for LESESNE. The city
looks 'o you for a majority.
