The speedy and successful reproduction by them of

or devising some plan by which these industrious
manufacturers ?r botruscurrency may bc put hors
an coni'tnt. Thc .superintendent of the Note
Printing llureau has suggested, and the Secretary
is considering thc following plan : To devise plates
K-.th very few lines and thc plainest kind of
graining, so that thc merest novice can become
familiar with their appearance In a short time; to
print the notes from these plates on light colored
paper of a peculiar quality, and then let thc coun?
terfeiters go to werk. The idea is that the least
variation In thc quality or appearance of thc
paper, or In the engraving, may then be at once
discovered, and the moment a counterfeit makes
its appearance all notes o'" the denomination tims
imitated can be called iii at once, and another
plaie prepared. This plan has been successfully
pursued by thc Hank of England for many years.
Tlic Coralng Party.
_ .' y ,
We think that we may fairly claim that
thc general policy sketched out by TUE NEWS,
us that most likely to secure thc defeat of
thc Radical officials in tho approaching can?
vass, must command Hie support of the press
and the sympathy of tito people uf thc State.
It was not expected that our State con?
temporaries would eagerly declare, in so
many words, their approval of the whole
platform of the coming party, as laid down
by this paper. But without saying that they
were ready to stand shoulder to shoulder
with THE NEWS tu tito impending strife, our
contemporaries have, in their own way, as?
sured the people that there is only one way
to success, aud that way is the adoption of
a broad, liberal ami comprehensive policy,
uniting tho honest of all classes and purlies
in a common hostility to official and persona]
corruption. This is all Hut we ask-Ulis is
all that THE NEWS demands. We insist
upon a full and frank recognition of the civil
and political rights of the negro; we insist
upon a submissiou to the inevitable necessi?
ties of the political situation. And wc pro?
pose to go before tho whole people, white
and colored, as thc party of honest govern?
ment and equal rights-as thc friends of low
taxation-as the friends of Hie workingman
as the supporters and advocates of indus?
trial activity-as tho persistent opponents of
monopolies and class legislation-as a party
pledged to represent faithfully and equally
the wants, rights and necessities of all classes
and all conditions of mon. Thi3 is the
whole platform of Tun NEWS, and we have
yet to .meet with one State press which re?
fuses to agree to these propositions, or which
has failed, in oue way or another, to enun?
ciate and defend them.
Upon one subject there is, however, much
difference of opinion. It seems to bc tiie
conviction that it would be unwise to call
the State party of thc future the DEMOCRATIC
party, and that it would bc best lo style it
simply a PEOPLE'S party, or Orrosmox
party-auything but a RADICAL part}'. Now,
for mere names, in this matter ot re?
deeming the State, we do not care a jot.
The principles, and not thc name of thc
party ; the temper of the weapon, not the
mark of the maker; will give us victory or
defeat. Upou the platform laid down in
these columns all good and true men should
bc able to stand. And if any of our people,
white or colored, are repelled byan old party
name, it ls high time to choose a new name
which shall have no past. The "truth is, we
cannot afford to lose votes for tho sake of
abstract ideas. This contest with a dishon?
est government, and corrupt officials, is a
business question-a question of bread and
meat, of life and death. Aud we must con?
duct the canvass in a practical and business?
like manner. Having chosen a broad and
liberal policy, we must use our weapons as
best we may, turning to good account all
the power and strength that justice aud fair
dealing shall give us.
Ttic A" Viii Amendment.
The XVth Amendment to tho Constitution
of the United States has been ratitled by the
required number of Stales, and thc declara?
tion that "the right of citizens of Hie United
"States shall not be denied or abridged by
"the United Slates or by any State, on ae
"count of race, color, or previous condition of
"servitude; and that thc Congress shall have
"power to enforce this article by appropriate
"legislation," will, as suon as thc Official an?
nouncement is made, stand as a part of the
Federal Constitution. The States which
have adopted the amendment arc as follows:
Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida,
Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan,
Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada,
New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South
Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia
There are thirty-seven Slates in the Union,
and twenty-eight have voted for the amend?
ment. Of these twenty-eight, nine are
Southern reconstructed States. Another,
Texas, will make ten of this kind of votes.
If tiicse ten States had gone against thc
amendment, as they would have done hail
they ben free to choose, the required three
fourths could not have been obtained. The
vote of New York is counted in the vote in
favor of Hie amen ciment, as the right of thal
State ta reverse us action is not admitted by
tbe dominant party. And. in any event,
Nebraska and Texas would mure than make
up the requisite number.
Thc inconsistency of the reconstruction
policy, as well as its unconstitutionality,
need not be pointed out again in these col
umus. The reconstructed States had to vote
for the new constitutional amendments as a
condition of restoration to the Union. If
they were not in the Union, what was the
value of their ratification ? If they were in
thc Union, what becomes of the Validity of
the reconstruction laws? But it is useless
to talk of these things now. Impartial suf?
frage is fastened upon the people of the
United States, and the North must do what
the South is doing-make the best of thc
situation. We, ourselves, have no fear of
the result. With Hie enfranchisement of thc
slaves, the completion of "econstruclion
and the ratification of thc XlVtli and XVlIi
amendments, tho work of the Radical party
is done. They must now take thc back
scats. They ruii3t make way for thc party
of honesty, of justice, of free trade, of low
THE annual report of the Superintendent
of Education shows that 168,819 children,
between the ages of 5 and 18, are attending
school in 26 counties of the State. Of the
total number, 6S, 10S children are white, and
100,711 colored. There are381 schools with,
473 teachers, of whom, 105 are South Caro?
linians, anti 7." are Northerners. We hope
that the time will soon come when every
child in the State will have within Iiis reach
and means a plain, commercial education.
Ignorance, rather than indolence, is the
Father of all Evil.
OUR Columbia correspondent points ont
what seems to have been a shameless piece
nf bribery on the part of a person interested
in passing a bill through the House of Rep?
resentatives. The respectable members of
thc General Assembly owe it to themselves
to put dowu these practices of "recogniz
"ing," und "seeing light," which, while they
last, make the whole Legislature both con?
temptible and ridiculous. f^''
THE "social equality'' bill did not pass its
second reading in the Senate, on Friday, and
is still in the hands of the Senate Judiciary
Committee. The bill which did pass has a
similar titie, but a wholly dillerent scope.

SORGO SUGAR AND REFINED
Wc would Invite thc attention of Planters to
the consideration or some nf thc advantages tn
the cultivation or SORGO as a Crop, which are,
the small amount of labor; thc hardy character

?nd the fact that thc Seed and every part of the

hitherto adopted In preparing thc Juice or this

that Sugar could not be produced, but only a very
