that there may be a reaction before long, but few

-The military review at Belcos, In Asia, In bon
or of the Empress Eugenie, was a splendid sight.
The'troops were massed in a charming valley, un?
der the shade of gigantic trees, rae Sultan ar?
rived with the Empress, giving her his. arm, and
conducted her to a pavUion of great splendor.
Twenty-five thousand men, commanded by Omar
Pacha, then filed off, the appearance of thc troops
being superb. Notwithstanding the great dis?
tance from Constantinople, an enormous multi?
tude was collected on the heights. Thousands :
Ot Turkish women were also present, displaying
their splendid costumes nuder a - blazlug
sun, la the evening, after dinner, there was a
display of fireworks at Beicos, and the Bospho- 1
rna was Blumlnated. The Empress the next >
-day wsnt to pera; the streets and windows were 1
crowded with spectators, and the houses decked ,
out with flags. The reception given to her Majes?
ty was of the most cordial description. After [
mass, the Empress received at the Embassy the
Preach notabilities and religious conimunlties,and ;
afterwards visited the house of 'the Sisters of
Charity and the French hospital. The Mayor of
Pera received he' Majesty under a splendid
triumphal arch. In an address which he pro?
nounced, he made a graceful allusion to the con?
duct of the Empress during the cholera at
Amiens. In thc evening a grand dinner was
given to her Majesty by the Sultan, who also iu-*
vited the ministers, high state functionaries, and
heads of legation, witta their ladies.
-The shocking story of the wreck of the whal?
ing schooner Susen N. Smith has already been
briefly uotlced in THE NEWS. Captain Rounse
ville, master of the vessel, says that when .the
masts were cut away, the wind was Mowing like
a hurricane, and roared like heavy thunder. Tue
sea was chopping ugly, and dashing iu wildly
from all quarters. Thc going over, and all, was
so quickly done that the captain could notchaugc
his position, to get aft where Ids wife and children
and most of his crew were. - He got on to the rig?
ging, at the top or the mast, by crawling through
the rattlings, and there found nearly the whole
crew and the officers collected and holding on to
ropes and chains. While there, he secured himself
> Ith a rope, and the first mate did thc same. Here
were twenty or more men In thc rigging. The
captain's wife and children perished in the cabin
during the storm, and their bodies were washed
away. Everything edible had also been washed
out of the vessel. All through the week
the captain and his four companions oluug to the
wTeck-eight days without food or water. The
testimony of all ls that the thought of food scarce?
ly entered their minds, but their burning thirst
nearly drove them to distraction. It came to be,
through this dreadru! parching, that neither one
could talk. Each tongue was swollen, ?nd hung
without the mouth. As il touched thc roor of thc
mouth, it glued there, and scaled of In large
flakes. On Sunday morning a sall came in sight
and the men were taken col". All were the merest
skeletons. Captain Rounsevllle, who weighed,
before the wreck. ?n-> hundred and ninety
pounds, had lost nearly ninety pounds In his
eight days of suffering. A teaspoonful or brandy
was given each one to start with, but even this
was too much for their shattered system, and
very soon after reaching the ship all were uncon?
scious and remained tn that state for two days.
Eventually, however, they recovered.
It is not given to many to amass, by up:
right walking in the beaten ways of com
! meroe, a fortune counted by millions; and
few are they who know, in its fruition, the
happiness of riches well employed In com?
mon life the mite of the widow has more of
living reality than the golden gift of the
wearer of purple and brocade; for the dole
of the poor goes out in company with the
kindly eye and earnest word, while the
legacy of wealth awakens no throb of grati?
tude in the wan and weary ones among
whom it is shared, as its anticipation
kindled no fire of joy in the heart of him
w?ose life was barren, though bis death
would be ripe with good. Happy are they
who, possessing fortune, so use it as to see,
with their own vision, tho fullness of their
works- who may look back upon decades of
active tisefulness, upon long years of which
each one is the sign of new deeds of charity nnd
love. One of these-the first of these-is
him who. with the snows of seventy and four
winters on his head, has merged the deep
disquiet of this life in an eternity of peace
In 1795, when Georgo Peabody was born j
at Danvers, Massachusetts, Washington,
with all his honors thick upon bini,' wore the
officiai robe as President of the new-born
Republic. His boyhood was uneventful ; but
in the war of 1812 he saw active service as a
volunteer. Steadiness, patience and integ?
rity enabled bim to move surely upward,
and in 1837, when he established himself in
Xrigland, he"~wo9 already ltnown as a capable
and successful merchant Many monetary
transactions on the part of the States of the
American Union were entrusted to Mr. Pea?
body, and in revolutionary 1848 he largely
cc?tributed to the restoration of the credit of
the State of Maryland.
The public generosity of Mr. Peabody
first showed itself at the International Exhi?
bition of 1851, when, at his own cost, he ar?
ranged and decorated the department allot?
ted to the United States. When the Frank?
lin Exploring Expedition was fitted out
in 1852, he contributed largely, to its
expense. The heart of the sober mer?
chant yearned to bis native town, and at a
cost of $125,000 he erected nt Danbury the
institute which bears bis narrie. To Mary?
land he gave $500,000; and' the magnificent
building in the Monumental City, known ns
the Peabody Institute, is an enduring mouu
mont of his renown.
The measure of his usefulness seemed full,
when, seventeen years ago, he retired from
commercial life. Thia enabled bim to carry out
a long-cherished plan bf erecting comfortable
and convenient lodging houses for the work?
ing classes. Mr. Peabody, for this purpose,
gave the City of London one and a half mil?
lion dollars, and now in every quarter of the
Great City there rise up majestic buildings,
bearing witness hourly to. the wisdom as
well as lavish generosity of a great bene?
factor of his race. When the war with the
Confederate States came to an untimely end,
Mr. Peabody gave $2,100,000 for the aid of
common, school education in tho South. '
This fund will, in time, work incalculable
and permanent good. This old city has es?
pecial cause to remember hin name. But
for the Peabody fund, the public schools of
Cbarleston would have beeu closed for nt
least a season.
The fame of the unostentatious merchant
spread from poie to pole. Her Majesty,
Queen Victoria, thanked him in au auto?
graph letter for bis munificent gift to tho
poof of London. Ribbons, stars or titles
were not to his ta;te, and Mr. Peabody was
presented with n portrait of the Queen,
painted for him by h^r express command.
And in his owu country ho wai no less hon?
ored. Tho Congress of the United States, ia
1S(J7, passed n formal vote, thanking bim for
bis girts to the people.
And now the race of the good old man is
ruu. Bowed do\vn by age and intiruiily, be
lias fallen asleep, breathing his last in the
midst of the people with whom his life was
spent, and by whom he is fondly loved.
Could the millions whom he had befriended
have been warned that the passing hour of
their truest friend was nigh, their prayers
and tearful invocations would have cleared
the briars from his path, and winged their
flight with him before the Jasper Throue of
the Eternal Courts of God.
The bones of the just man win lie by the
remains of his brothers and sisters io his
native State. And the desolate and afflicted
to whom the living man was more than sis?
ter or brother, will in spirit visit his tomb.
Seasons may como and go, and even this
Great Republic pass away; but the name of
George Peabody, the plain American citi?
zen, will last au I live, when the deeds of
Kin-; and Kaiser, I rince and Conqueror,
aie slighted and forgotten.
A Sad Comedy.
We are not of those who find only food
j for mirth in the disgraceful conduct and uu
seemly behavior now too common at the
meeting3 of our City Council. From the
very first days of their term, Aldermen have
made themselves conspicuous hy their row?
dyism and indecency. The gravest accusa?
tions were bandied about; one Alderman
branded another as a liar; a third chal?
lenged the whole Council to a general
scrimmage; charges of corruption, pecu?
lation and nepotism were an every day
afi'air. And so the government of the
city was carried on-each Alderman im?
proving his opportuuities aud widening his
shoulders, like the civic streets, "at the ex?
pense of the corporation''-until the pistol,
already talked of, was actually brought to
light, aud the walls of the Council Chamber
were defaced and scarred by bullets fired by
one infuriate Radical magnate at the head
of a brother Alderman.
This crowning piece of blackguardism lcd
to the meeting held on Thursday night.
During the meeting thc Aldermen who had
before made themselves notorious broke
loose from all restraint. Aldennau T. J.
Mackey threatened "to strip every mask
"from the corrupt body" of Alderman Ged?
dings, who is, we know, a respectable con?
servative citizen. The same Alderman said
he was prepared to prove that several Alder?
men had been bribed, and had sicorn to Con?
vict him and expel him for shooting at his
nldernianic nephew. Alderman Collins de?
clared that a witness wfio was put on the
stand had sworn to "a damnable and atro?
cious lie." Another Alderman retorted
that the moral character of Alderman Col
lius was so low that one hundred and fifty
merchants of this city certified that "he was
"unfit to hold an offlce under the TJuited
'.States Government," which doo3 not, we
know, pay much attention to pure ethics in
selecting partisan officials. Collector Clark
a witness of the scene-"lang by what was
said of him, denounced Alderman T. J.
Mackey as "a liar," who rejoined by saying
that Clark "was so well known in the eom
"munity as a thief that it was not necessary
"to answer him." Then came the turn of
Alderman Barrow, who was charged with
receiving a bribe to vote against the ac?
cused. Alderman Barrow jumped up, say?
ing, "I am ready to prove before Almighty
"God that this charge against me is one of
"the damudest lies ever uttered." The
Council were soon after abused by whole?
sale, and styled, in the chaste language of
Alderman T. J. Mackey,-"villains, miaera
"ble thieves, robbers, polygamists, per?
jurers, forgers." The two Mackeys re?
signed,- their resignations were accepted,
and the Couucil adjourned. The audience,
gathered together to behold what was fun
for them, laughed and clapped their hands
and stamped with their feet as the Aldermen
lunged and thrust at each other. As the din
became more deafening, the audience
chuckled and shouted the more. Aa the
Spartans bade their children witness tho an?
tics of their drunken slaves to wean them
from even a leaning to intemperance, so
might the respectable citizens of Charleston
send their boys to our Council Chamber, that
there might grow with their growth and
. strengthen with their strength a fixed hate
of the rottenness and beastliness of South
As we have said, the conduct of the City
Council fills us not even with a grim pleas?
ure, but with regret and alarm. We have
had one year of this Radical city govern?
ment, and in that year the city 6pent $158,
000 more than it actually earned. In the
Mayor no man has confidence; the few Al?
dermen who are decent and upright have
had no power to check the waste and the
profligacy, the vituperation and abuse. And
what la our condition? A city of forty thou?
sand inhabitants, willi twenty millions of
real estate, with a debt of live millions
ruled by a majority who combine all the
wor3t qualities of the fool and thc knave,
the dolt and thc shrewd politician.
We do not speak of this as a political
question. These nldernianic rowdies are
judged by us and by the public, not as mem?
bers of a political party, but as men. And
we oppose them, and ever will oppose them,
not because they ure Radicals, but because
tliey ure doing their best to destroy this city,
and with it every lioitest citizen.
There is already a small knot of respecta?
ble men in Council. Their term of office
does not expire for two years. And if we
would save the city and our people, we must
seize every opportunity, and whenever there
is a vacancy, unite the people-white and
colored-in .the common cause, and clcet
men who will side with the industrious and
trustworthy citizen, and not with the miser?
able dupe, the maudlin fool, or thc brazen
TUE report which We print this morning,
of the opening of the Abbeville Fair, shows
a striking improvement in the energy and
prosperity of our people. Abbeville leads
oft* iu the good work of industrial and agri?
cultural reform and progress, and makes a
noble beginning. We regret that it was im?
practicable for TUE NEWS to be represented
at the fair by one. of the regular members of
ils staff, but feel satisfied that no profes?
sional baud could have given a livelier or
more picturesque description of the scene
than is found in the letter of our correspon?
dent, whose suggestion, by the way, in re- <
gard to Mr. Lee. will, we hope, lie adopted.
GOVERNOR SCOTT appoints Thursday, No?
vember 18th, to be observed by the peuple
of this Stale, "as a day of general thanks
