-The storm ol'Sunday evening, Sic 16th in?
stant, was a full-grown tornado in St. Louis, tear?
ing down buildings, scattering cidra oles and eve?
rything movable, lifting men od* their reef, and
causing a panic all over the city There was a
terrible scene at the Varieties Theatre, which was
crowded Sunday night. Thc beams or the roor
cracked and groaned under thc tierce blasts, un
til finally a portiou crashed in, and the audience
with oue accord made a frantic rush ror avenues
of escape. The approaches to thc doors became
choked by a courused, screaming mass of scared
humanity, while those who were fortunate enough
to be nearest the doors tumbled down stairs
headlong, or any other way they could, and com?
municated the alarm outside. But the number
behind in the building that could not get out
was far the largest, and the scene was' piti?
ful and appalling. A rush was made Tor the win?
dows; scores or men Jumped over luto the par?
quette and mailc their way to the stage. Tlie side
windows opening on thc alley were burst open,
and men precipitated themselves down to the
ground, a height or Qftecnor twenty feet, with
perfect recklessness of limb and life. Rut it was at
'he main exit doors and stairways that the worst
crash occurred. Men were thrown down or fcl>
and trampled upon by thc#nsane, panic-stricken
mob, or crashed agalust the walls until their ribs
cracked or broke. Women fainted and reached
the open air they knew not how. At the Olympic
theatre, where there were religious services, thc
audience left in the middle of the sermon, wrench
isp on" doors and bursting out windows in the
rush Tor safety.
Thc Platform of thc South Carolann
Radicalism can be met and overthrown at
the general elections, which take place in,
October next. A bold, straightforward,
manly opposition to the ruling party: this j
opposition made vigorous and popular by
A LIVING POLICY; this, opposition, and this
livhig.policy, made invincible by unflagging
enenrv aud uuited and harmonious labor:
- - a
these will redeem our people, and restore
South Carolina to tlie desirable rule of intel?
ligence, integrity and worth. The three
conditions are mutually dependent 011 each
other. A vigorous attack avails nothing if
the battle be not wisely planned, and thc
attack and tlie plan of battle will not insure
victory unless the troops be armed with tren?
chant blades which shall dint and pierce tlic
sable armor of the foe. Aud the one great
weapon to be wielded in the coming contest
with Soutli Carolina Radicalism is-A POLICT
OF TUE PRESENT AND FUTURE; A LIBERAL,
BROAD AND PROGRESSIVE POLICT ADAPTED TO
TUB WANTS AND CONDITIONS OF THE TIMES.
The details of this policy-the platform of
the South Carolina Democracy in the State
elections-need not bc defined at this time.
It is important, however, to declare at once
what are the points to be insisted ou, that
we may begin the cauvass with hope,
carry it on with confidence, and crowu its
close with tidings of great joy.
1. The Democracy of South Carolina must
look to the present and future, and uot to
the past. They must submit to the inevita?
ble necessities of thc political situation; hav?
ing, however, no part or fellowship, upon
any terms, with South Carolina Radicalism.
2. The civil and political equality of the
colored people with the white race, under
thc laws of thc State and tlie United States,
must be frankly admitted and acknowledged.
3. Tlie declaration should be reiterated
th;rt what reforms we need must Le obtained
by constitutional means and agencies alono.
.1. And to the people of South Carolina,
white and colored, should be made this sim?
ple statement : We come bef jre yo^as the
party of justice and equal rights, as the party
of honest government and low taxation.
We come efore you pledged lo represent
equally and faithfully every class of people,
to encourage and protect every interest, to,
admit no monopoly and to put down class
legislation, to maintain the Stale credit and
pay faithfully every dollar of her just debts.
This is promising no more than we can
and will perform. It gives to the colored
people as much as they have, as much as
they are entitled to, and all that they expect ;
it bolds the white people Dimly together;
and it unites the whites and "the blacks in
the common cause of good governmeut and
opposition to Radical corruption.
The Workingmen'* Library and Read?
We were in error the oilier day in saying
that it is proposed to establish a free library
and reading-room for the use of tlie Work
ingmen's Union. The scheme is not in any
way connected with that organization, and
is intended for the belie?t of Hie working?
men of thc city, whether they are. or are
not, members of ?tile Union. A? soon as
enough money is collected to put tlie project
on its legs, a meeting of tlie subscribers will
bc called, and they will elect proper persons
to take charge of tho institution. The move?
ment, as we have already said, is an admi?
rable one, and we hope that our citizens will
not hesitate to make tlie small donations ex?
pected from them.
THE text of the Fifteenth amendment,
which now needs but the affirmation of one
more State if Kew York be counted, and
two if it lie not counted, is as follows:
ARTICLE 15, SECTION 1. The right of citizens
of the L'nitcd Stales to vote shall not bc de?
nied or abridged by thc United States, or by
any State, on account of nice, color, or pre?
vious condition of servitude.
SECTION 2. Congress shall have power to eu
force this article by appropriate legislation.
The action of Nebraska, Georgia and
Texas is considered sure in favor of tlie
Qpr Washington Specials.
The public have not failed to notice that
THE NEWS is steadily ahead of its contem?
poraries in the imporant intelligence flashed
over thc wires by its wide-awake corres?
pondent at the National Capital.
During the debates on the admission of
Georgia and Virginia, our special telegrams
have kept our readers fully advised of the
intentions and temper of thc Executive and
Congress: and we often have thc pleasure,
as this morning, cf laying before thc public
striking information, which cannot be ob?
tained by the worn-out agencies in which
other journals repose exclusive trust.
The truth of it is, that, no man can keep
up witli the times unless lie regularly reads
the special telegrams in THE NEWS.
Greenville Railroad Stock.
Our excellent contemporary, Hie Anderson
Intelligencer, is sadly annoyed because the
press of Charleston, and Columbia advised
the stockholders of the Greenville and Co?
lumbia Railroad Company to see whether
they could uot get a better price before they,
'.in desperate haste," sold their stock at ten
cents on thc dol lar, or two dollars a share.
The Intelligencer is "inclined to think that
"they have acted wisely in disposing of their
"stock at two dollars per share,'' because
"a paid agent," who offered the stockhold?
ers two dollars and a half a share had not
"thc necessary means to make such pur
"chases."* Our contemporary adds that
"thc prospect of getting better terms from the
"South Carolina Railroad or any other cor?
poration fades away into the dim distance,"
and mildly asks, "what higher valuation
"(than 82) is now placed upon the stock ?"
We doubt not that more is known in An?
derson of the diflereut schemes of selling out
the Greenville Road than is likely to be
known in Charleston, but we may say that
\persons are now in the market who are
ready to buy up the Greenville stock?t two
and a half dollars a share, and weRelieve, be?
sides, that the stockholders can secure bet?
ter terms than those which were submitted
Uo their board a few weeks ago. And wc
would ask the Intelligencer whether it is
consistent with the duties und responsi?
bilities of a director, or trustee, of a corpora?
tion to entertain proposals to sacrilico the
property* of the stockholders in a way
that cuts oft" all competition ? I? it just
or generous to close the door to ne?
gotiation, and then attempt to force the
stockholders into selling their stock for a
trille by stating that, unless that be ac?
cepted, the stock will beeraluoless ? We do
not think that the Intelligencer eau applaud
this way of performing a public and impor?
While on this subject we may mention, as
a strange circumstance, the receipt by a
number of stockholders of the Greenville
and Columbia Railroad in Charleston of a
letter from the secretary of the company,
asking them to sell their stock at ten cents
on thc dollar. The friends of President
Hammett declare, on his authority, that he
had nothing to do with this stock specula?
tion, and he will, doubtless, be surprised to
hear that a paid officer of his company is in
the market buying up its stock.
