-Owing to the breaking of an axis, the through

sustained severe thongh not serious Injury, in his
breast and hip, by being thrown agalns' tl e sides
of the oar, in its revolution. Mau agent
Wiggins sustained some bruise.* on his shoul?

The conductor's car, in which conductor Jarvis
was at the time of the accident, was als? thrown
from the track, turning half over in its rall.
The clothes of the colored stewardess caught fire
from contact with her stove, and were burned to
her skin, but further bodily damage was pre?
vented, as she maintains, by her hoop skirt. This
car was prevented from falling to the level of the
mail and express car, by coming iir' contact with
a telegraph pole. The position of the conductor's
car arrested the progress of the passenger car
down the declivity, and it was kept on the track
without other injuay to the passengers than the
Incidental shock of the accident. As soon
as Conduotor Jarvis had recovered and sur?

-The National Labor Convention or colored
men, at Washington, which adjourned sine die
stat week, passed a resolution complimenting
Isaac Meyers, cf Baltimore, its originator and
president. He made a speech during the meeting,
tn which he said that in Baltimore abont two hun?
dred and fifty colored men men banded together
after being discharged, through white Influence,
front the shipyards, and purchased one of their
own, at a cost of $10,000, and to-day the yard em?
ploys tire hundred and fifty colored men and
fifty-live white men, and is in a prosperous condi?
tion. Some of the white men employed now in
the yard are the same persons who helped te kick
the colored men ont of the yards of Baltimore.
He would not endorse the political Worklng
taen's Union or this country, because thc Repub?
lican party had done too much ror his race, and
ho colored man in the land should attach himself ?
tc the former organization, as its object was to
break down the great Republican party, and form
a Democratic party. A committee of colored
men waited upon the President on Saturday,
whenScr.*ror Harris, colored, of North Carolina,
a deleave co the National Labor Convention,
made-a speech, In which he thanked thc Presi?
dent, tn the neme of the colored people, forap
ponting hkek men tooffloe, thereby recognizing
ihoU claim* as a part of the body politic. H6
said that ose of the objects of the convention
was to secure land for the laborers of the SOD th,
so that they maj become permanent settlers and
independent citizens. There are eight millions of
acres of land that maj. be used by Cangress to
secure these results, and they desire to secure
the President's Influence to prevent any renewal
of the lapsed land granU to railways and other
corporations to thc detriment of actual settlers.
TH? President replied that he could only aid the
matter by suggestion and recommendation, and
that he would give the matter his attention.
New Phase of Woman's Right?.
The hearts of the sable legislators in Co?
lumbia were thrilled by the announcement
of Wright that he intended to test the Civil
Rights bill, though it should cost him his last
cent. lu his own person an outrage had
been inflicted upon the colored race, and by
his own purse that outrage should be terri?
bly avenged. Wo are informed that Wright
professes to be a lawyer; it is a pity he hud
not a better case. Certaiuly it would not be
easy for him to appear at greater disadvan?
tage; for both thc wrong of which he com?
plains and the pledge he gives to his ag?
grieved fellow-citizens are equally pitiable.
Wright complains that he was turned out
of the ladies' car. What business had he
there ? Does he not know that any man, of
whatever color, unattended by a domestic
responsibility, has no right to occupy that
car? He is allowed to sit in it only by the
sufferance of the conductor, and may be
turned out at the will of the latter. Nor are
we aware that the conductor is obliged to
give a reason to any intruder why he should
leave. Wright's seat may have been held
in reserve for expected lady passengers, or
his looks may not have been in his favor, or
he may have had too much musk-on his
pocket handkerchief. Who knows? The
whole wrong consists in this, that the ag?
grieved senator tried to take a lady's place
and was ordered out of it There is no evi?
dence to show that he or she carried the cus?
tomary fan and lunch-basket, or wore her
veir, her bonnet, or even her chignon. There
is reason to believe that she dressed like a
man, that she disputed her place like a liti
gous man, and blustered among the ladies
like an ill-bred man, and that she was Anally
carried out of the cars, and not kicked out.
This is the substance of Wright's wroug.
Now as to Wright's proposed sacrifice,
not for tho sex, as one would suppose, but
for the race. Here the lawyer so clearly ap?
pears that we must ask the outraged lady's
pardon for resorting sometimes to the mas?
culine pronoun. We do not mean to preju?
dice the case by this little change.
"Wc see the Wright and we approve it too."
We know the cause is lost unless she can
maintain the character of an outraged la'dy.
But Wright before the Labor Convention at
Washington, or the Legislature at Columbia,
is not a whit more feminine than Mrs. Dr.
Walker in her coat and pantaloons. Well,
then, Mrs. Wright in Columbia proclaims
that he will spend bis last cent in vindica?
ting her right to sit ^ the ladies' car, or as
she expresses it, in testing the virtue of the
Civil Rights bili. That bill shall be liquida?
ted by the turning inside out of Uncivil
Wright's pockets. But, as Pope says:
"Woman's at best a contradiction still,"
for it was this aame lady who engaged the '
Labor Convention at Washington "to create
"a fund to prosecute any such case of ex
"clusion under the Civil Rights bill, and to
"test the virtue of that bill." That is the
fund that Wright intends to work on, and
we have no doubt that he will even consent
to receive his fee for his work. Whether he
?ueeeeds in the case or not, she eau certaiu?
ly make more in that way than by stitching
[>r darning stockings. While women are so
poorly paid, what can we expect but an
Bffort on their part to secure a larger sphere
and more remunerative employment Let
Mrs. Wright go ahead with her railroad ca3e.
He will make a good thing out of it and put
money in her purse !
WK received, last evening, a copy of a
bill now before the Legislature granting to
certain parties, in consideration of a small
royalty to be paid to the State, the exclusive
right to obtain phosphatic rock from the bed
of our navigable streams. Wc print lu
another column the bill, together with some
shrewd comments from a writer in the Co?
lumbia Pheonix, who leaves little 'o be said
in regard to the expediency of the measure.
We ourselves favor free trade, as well as in
phosphates as in all oilier commodities; but
if such a monopoly as the bill provides for
is to be created, justice to the taxpayers de?
mands that it be sold under the auctioneer's
hammer, so that the State may reap the
largest possible advantage therefrom. We
shall watch with some interest the fate of
IT IS REPORTED that Governor Scott will
veto the bill to provide for the payment in
coin of the interest on the State debt. His
Excellency is not opposed to the bill, which
was introduced with his approval and is
fathered by his financial pet, but he may
have sold out his bouds, or be mad because
the House would not agree to pay principal
as well as interest in coin. And if he does
veto the bill, we suppose that it will be part
of the programme to pass it over the veto
without more ado. In this way Scott will
seem anxious to save his "beloved State,"
and tho bond and stock Ring will not be
THE Radical members of the South Caro?
lina Legislature are usually in the market,

One comfort is that votes will be cheaper

The People's Bank of Sooth Carolina.
Mr. John B. Lafitte, of this city, was
elected, yesterday, president of the People's
Bank of South Carolina, in the place of
Mr. James G. Gibbes, who had resigned.
Mr. Lafitte is a gentlemen of high standing
in commercial circles, and his large experi?
ence, business tact and undoubted financial
ability will be of great value to the woll
known bank of which he i3 now the head.
The People's Bank will, we believe, resume
active business in a few days, and, if sonnd
and able management count for anything,
it will soon become one of the most popu?
lar, as well as responsible, banking institu?
tions in the State.
SUSAN FIELDING. A Novel. By Mrs. Annie
Edwards. Author of '.Archie Lovell" and
"Stephen Lawrence, Yeoman.'' Illustrated
by Sol Eytinge and Winslow Homer. New
York: Sheldon & Co. Charleston: Johr. M.
Mrs. Edwards ls a novelist of very decided
ability. She ha3 the rare faculty of growth.
She never repeats herself cither in her plot or
in her sketches of character. Each of her
three last novels has been a decided advance
upon its predecessor, and in each of the three
she has added a new and original portrait of ]
the world's picture gallery. "Archie Lovel,"
"Dot" In "Steven Lawrence," and "Portia
French" in the present novel, are new and
live creatures, and each one of them will live
in the reader's memory long alter the multi?
tudinous heroes and heroines of the Braddon
Wood, Ouida school have faded into well-de?
served oblivion. We will not attempt, "an
analysis of the plot of "Susan Fielding." It is
worth reading by all who care for a good no?
vel, and we will not spoil the reader's interest
by premature disclosures.
The book is evidently printed directly from
the original sheets of the Galaxy magazine, in
which it appears as a serial, and consequently
is much marred by the uneven distribution of |
the chapters. It is so well gotten up in other
respects that it ls a pity this fault waa not
"PCT YOURSELF IN His PI?CE. Part Fir.
By Charles Reade, Author af "Foul Play,"
4c. New York: Sheldon & Co. Churlestou:
John M. Greer.
. As lar as Ave can judge in its present incom?
pl?te state, this last work of the veteran novel?
ist promises to rank with his best fictions. It
ls graphic, vigorous and original, and Ito gov?
erning purpose is timely and well developed.
We shall notice the book in detail when com?
pleted. The present instalment is introduced
by the following characteristic letter: "The
publishers of 'The Galaxy' pay me a liberal
price, fof 'Put Yourself In His Place.' If
were a mechanical inventor instead of a lite?
rary inventor, this payment would secure
them thc sole legal right. In the present in?
iquitous, partial, barbarous and brainless state
of law, it only secures them a clear moral
right. But I hope all respectable publishers
will respect the moral right, will put them?
selves In their place, and will forbear to reap
where they have not 6own.-[Charles Reade."
MEN'S WIVES. By W. M. Thackeray. New
York : I). Appleton A Co. Charleston : John
The name of Thackeray would sell a far
worse book than Men's Wives; but it is rather
hard that the public should be baited with a
great name to swallow what would be igno?
miniously rejected If the author were Tabitha
Jones or even Algernon Snooks. It ls well
enough to read abont "The Ravenswing" and
"Mr. and Mrs. Frank Berry" and "Dennis Hag
gerty's Wire," and these sketches have some
of the Incisiveness of "Vanity Fair," and a
dash of thc seeming-truth of "The Newcomer."
But we want Thackeray, the mature man, not
Thackeray In (literary) long clothes, and would
prefer to see trifles like "Men's Wives" omit?
ted from all editions of the works of the satir?
ist ot the nineteenth century.
CIPHER. A Romance. By Jane G. Austin.
New York : Sholdon & Co. Charleston :
This romance ls now published In book form,
and a glance over thc broad pages recalls Its
first appearance in the Galaxy, when a month
wits all too long to wait for the coming of an?
other chapter. With some features which wi!
not bear criticism, "Cipher" ls still a work of |
marked ability. The plot is ingenious and ex?
citing, the Incidents are stirring, and the mys?
tery which enshrouds thc characters and their
destiny leads the reader on, without pause or
hesitation, from first pago to lust. Thu book
is wanting, perhaps, lu balance and repose;
but it is, nevertheless, one o:' the best sensa?
tional romances ol' the time.

This little work is pleasantly written, and

care bas been taken to make thc local de?

illustrations are both numerous and attrac?

which should be a capital holiday gift, as the
author has succeeded In giving "Young Amer
