-The sudden acquiescence or thc Prussian Par?
liament In the financial plans of the government,

determination to assist Count Bismarck In the

him to prevent auy schemes of new taxation which
might endanger the attempt to keep the federal

no intention of disuniting. The foreign policy or

lute and seem determined to 'stick'as long as

never work another day for thc Western Unlou
Company under any circumstances, preferring
rat',er to adopt some other vocation than to again
be subjected to that company.

for the most part of the poorer classes of farming
people, but possessed or some Iii Cte means which
they design Investing In thc cheap lands of the
Southwest. They spoke or thousands more who
will follow In their wake.
-Prompted by the slgunl sjuccess attendant on
thcBoston Musical Jubilee last summer, the New
York Amu-ement Company propose to hold a mu?
sical reunion festival in New York next May.
Keliher poins nor money will be spared to trans?

course. Houses were blown down In every direc?
tion. G. W. Paynter was found some three hun?
dred yards from where lus house stood, undress?
ed. Davidson was found lu a pond, about one
hundred yards from his house. When the house
fell on Mrs. Sterritt, she had a two weeks' oh' baby
in her arms. When found, the baby was not hurt.
Two men slept up stairs in Davidson's house.
Tiley were not much hurt. About sixty families
are homeless, and need aid and assistance very
-The-great billiard match for the champion?
ship of the world and the diamond ca?, between
John Peery and Cyrille Dion, at San Francisco, i

Finally, Mr. Decry started out ahead, but he w
soon overtaken and passed by Mr. Dion. Then t
former came up and took the lead fora short tin
but Mr. Dion seized it from him toward Hie 1:

bodv present impossible to close. Thc champli

When Mr. Decry made his last count he threw 1
cue down, ran to Mr. Dion and shook him hurric
ly by the hand, and tnen attempted to run out
the building. He was caught by his friends, w
threw their arms around him, and pulled a:
dragged him about in a manner that threaten
to leave him with no clothing; and at one time
looked as If they would pull his limbs and he
off. They hoisted him apon the billiard table, a
for full five minutes it seemed from the yells a;
and cheers, and the surging crowd of excited ni
around, that the infernal regions had turned lot
a legion of imps. Mr. Dion was also placed <
thc table, ami received many hearty cheers ai
hand-shakings from his mauy Mends. Decry
average was 10 90-91; Dion's IS S2-94.
Our Policy for thc Campaign-WJu
Can he Accomplished.
J All good citi JD3 concede that it is a s
preme necessity to secure, next fall, at ai
cost, a decent, capable and honest gover
ment, in place of the Radical Ring, whit
squanders the moans and paralyzes thc ii
dustries of the people of the Slate.
A change'of rulers, anti a chango for tl
bolter, we must have, whatever the prie
But any policy which smacks of compr
mise or equivocation is fraught with dange
A victory won by degrading the upright ar
intelligent to the level of the ignorant at:
base, would be more disastrous than d
feat. Thc fight can be surely won, on
square issue, if the white people so resolve
It is only Hiv joining issue with Radica
and with Radicalism, face to face and froi
lo front, that we can redeem our State.
An l when we set our forces in the lieh
we have, to begin with, enough of assure
Strength to strip the result of imminent (
mortal danger. A straightforward, mani
policy, rallying in a common cause the hot
esty and the worth and the industry of til
State, must give us, at thc worst, the di:
tricts in which Radicalism was defeated :
the elections of 18GS. Then there was n
great excitement, nor was the canvass e?
pecially warm. The popular mind was in
pressed with the belief that the Radical cat
didate for President would certainly be elet
ted, and that the vote of South Carolin
weighed little in the scale. And yet, witt
ont effort, as without work, there was
handsome Democratic majority in Abbeville
Anderson, Chesterfield, Greenville, Horn
Lancaster, Laurens, Lexington, Marion
Newberry, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg
Union and York. Fifteen out of the thirty
one .counties in the State did their dut,
nobly, and voted the Radicals down.
This was more than a year ago, when m
living issue animated the public heart. Nov
it is stirred to the core. Another twelve
month of negro rule and burdensome laxa
tion, of official nepotism and party fraud
has nerved the arni and cleared the visloi
of our people. They will do more in 1S7I
than they did in 1S6S. Working heartily
and steadily, they may wrest from the Radi
cal grasp thc most Radical counties in lh<
State. Under no circumstances can they,
or will they, do less now than they did m
the last elections. And if they only do a:
much, if they only crush out Radicalism -it
thc fifteen counties which gave Dt'tnocrat'n
majorities in 1SCS, we shall have, front tht
start, forty-five members of the lower housi
of the General Assembly, ready to meet tin
Radical majority at ail times and upon al
Forty-five able and incorruptible men,
backed by the moral influence of tht
whole State, might do much to control
the action of the General Assembly in ali
that concerns deeply the welfare of our peo
pie. The forty-five should be a nucleus
around which the more sensible or dissatis?
fied of their opponents would ualurall}
gather. Their influence would be potent in
exposing the follies and uumasking the vil?
lanies of tbe Radical crew. They would
be the rallying poiut, the forlorn hope, the
soul and the tongue of all South Carolina.
Armed with truth and justice, lighting
against ignorance and vice, these forty-five
guardsmen could and would prevail.
And ibis, mark it! is thc worst fate
that we ure called upon to meet, so long tts
we show a bold front and allow no strag?
gling from the ranks. WE ARI SURE OF
FORTY-FIVE REPRESENTATIVES IN TUB LOWER
HOUSE, IK Wi DEFILE NOT OURSELVES BY
KATIIIUING TnAT TOLICY OK COMPROMISE
WHICH STINKS IN THE NOSTRILS OF ALL HON?
Forty-five out of one hnndr?d and
twenty-four is the least that we shall have.
AMD WH CAN HAVE MORE. We may carry
twenty counties instead of fifteen. We may
have SIXTY or SEVENTY representatives, if we
plan and toil aright and steep not our souls
in the sinks of Radical iniquity. But a com?
promise with sin. a bargaining with guilt,
will, no matter what venal politicians say,
whelm the State in ruin !
THE State Senate turn3 up its nose now at
an extension bill. ?Jail Columbia! Tho
Senate refused to allow Summerville to be
extended. Why does not DeLargc propose
to exteud the limits of Branchville to Fort
Sumter and thc Ashley and Cooper Rivers ?
Slandering tho City Council. j J
The petition of the Republicans of Charles?
ton praying for thc passage of the Extension
bill, is a refreshingly quaint document It
is a formal arraignment of Mayor Pillsbury
ami the City Council, who are accused of fill?
ing tho city oilices with Democrats, of taxing
labor while capital goos free, of refusing to
j require that negroes shall be dealt with social?
ly as though tliey were white men, and of
being opposed to all forms of free govern?
ment. In fact, the Mayor and Aldermen are
declared to bc unsound and rotten in their
Republicanism, and unlit to exercise the
functions of their high office.
Thc good people of Charleston, on thc
other hand, have always thought that the
present Mayor and Council were Radicals of
the strictest sect. They have increased enor?
mously the expenses of the city. They
pay two dollars for work that can be done
for one. They eject respectable white men
from the police force and put ignorant ne?
groes in their place. They make thc Coun?
cil chamber a pistol gallen-, and the ante?
room a grog shop. They spend so much
that they suspend payment of interest on the
city debt, and so admit that the municipality
is-'bankrupt. Already, enough! If this is
'"not Radicalism, what is?
There are many things that wc do deny to
the Mayor and Aldermen of Charleston, but
wc are forced to admit, what their deeds
prove, that they are Radical in bone, flesh
and sinew, Radicals through and through.
AT the regular quarterly meeting of the
board of Directors of the South Carolina
Railroad Company, held on the 19th instant,
General Daniel Tyler, of New York, was
unanimously* elected a director of thc com?
pany, to Dil the vacancy occasioned by the
death of the late Mr. James Rose. General
Tyler is one of the largest stockholders of
the company, and as a man of ripe experi?
ence and considerable ability, will doubtless
be an acceptable and a valuable offlcer.
A NEGRO senator was turned out a first
class car on the Richmond and Danville
Railroad. Thc president of that road is also
president of* the Air Line Railroad. Our
General Assembly cannot touch the Virginia
railroads, but the Senate repeals the bill in?
corporating the Air Line Railroad, as a sure
way of punishing President Buford for allow?
ing a conductor to insult a South Carolina
senator. Great is Diana of the Ephesians !
THE Spartan, a paper published at Spar
tanburg Courthouse, ?3 satisfied that thc so
called "Whiskey War' was not caused by a
disposition to resist the enforcement of the
revenue law, but by the unpopularity of the
person to whom the execution of the law was
entrusted. It bade fair to be a serious busi?
ness, all the same.
SENATOR LESLIE has lucid intervals. In
the Senate on Wednesday he said that thc
"Metropolitan Police bill" was about a3 bad
a job as the Land Commission bill. The pc/
lice bill was then indefinitely postponed.
Why cannot the same be done with the/lo?
quacious Land Commissioner ? ; J
WRIGHT will serve as justice of the Su?
preme Court if elected; so will Whipper.
The chances arc that Whipper will be for?
tune's favorite, and will soou take bis seat
on the bench. Negro blood will tell, aud
