by ex-Governor Graham, or North Carolina. On
"the 16th, Dr. Sears submitted a lengthy report or
operations for thc past six months, which were
adopted. Appropriations were made, in all
.amounting to $91,000, to bc expended up to
Sept. 1st, 1870, by the general agents, under the
direction of the executive committee, in neigh?
borhoods in all the Southern States. It was voted
that thc next annual meeting be held in Philadel?
phia, Pa., on thc '.hird Wednesday in February,
1871, and that.a special meeting be held at Mem?
phis, Tenn., or some other point in the Southern
States, during October or the present year. The
.board then adjourned until that time.
-An amusing pen-plctnre or a state dinner is
given in correspondence from Washington. Thc
- banqueting halt is in the west wing or thc White
: Ho ase, and is painted In frescoes, its windows
screened with heavy green reps pendant from
gilt cornices. Around the room are sideboards
.laden wi th.costliest glass, silver and gold plated
ware. Gorgeous mirrors and chandeliers give
brilliancy to the apartment. The table seats thir?
ty-six. The President always occupies the same
scat in the centre cf one or the long sides or the
table; Mrs. Grant sits opposite; both are solemn
one because he has nothing to say, an i thc other
bec msc she does not know how to say lt. A dlu
;ncr io thc diplomatic corps is voted a bore. Thc
. d'p:omats vant to laugh, and expect their
-wit to be answered In kind. President Grant
-h? reverse in that respect of Mr.
Lincoln-knows he is unequal to the task, and the
knowledge distresses him. He consequently ll?,
teus a good deal, but talks little, at these dinners.
Mrs. Grant generally manages to flank herself
with somebody who ls amusing; that is, if she can
do so without violating conventionalism. On
Wednesday General Sherman sat a few scats from
ber on the right, risa-vis to General Huller, the
whole of whose bald-head seemed to shine with
good humor, as the tempting odors of the twenty
courses found their way to Iiis expectant nostrils.
Mrs. Harlan, attired in a magnificent evening
dress of garnet-colored velvet, covered with Val?
enciennes lace, sat on thc right of the President,
and Mrs. Morrill on his left. They were unable
to draw him out, however, and he correctly strok
d his beard, as if to (Ind lu that occupation thc
relief which he no doubt heartily prayed for dur?

Thc "Third Party" ix Misnomer.
We uotice thut^ome of thc State papers
are falling into the habit of styling the new
Citizens' party, now forming throughout
South Carolina, the "Third*' Party. The
phrase, we presume, is meant to convey the
idea that the ne v political organization is
wholly distinct from either of the partios
which have hitherto struggled for the n as
tery in our State elections. But the term
seems to us a little unfortunate, inasmuch as
it may be understood to imply the existence
at this time of three parties in South Caro?
lina. The fact is, that all well disposed peo?
ple who have anything at slake in the future
of the State see the necessity of rubbing
out old party lines altogether within her bor?
ders. Henceforward in State ailairs there
will be but two parlies among us:- the par?
ty of honest and capable government, low
taxation and general reform ; and on the
other hand, a Ring of corrupt officials, with
all whom they can bribe, bully or delude
? uto supporting them, and who will bc band?
ed together under the banner of Radicalism,
Robbery and Ruin. There'is to be uo
The Radical parly is badi}' demoralized.
It still blusters and utters its old catchwords
as loudly as ever. It still claims to be thc
party of morality and economy, of philan?
thropy and peace. But its pretensions are
exploded, its pledges have been violated, its
credit is at a discount.
Tlie politicians and ^legislators of this in?
famous cabal, in fighting with each other,
have torn off the-.masks of respectability mid
decency, which have heretofore beguiled the
couutry. The colored representatives and
senators, aud the white renegades and
adventurers at Columbia, make disclosures
which, if true-and they ought to know-indi?
cate that the State is ruled hy a knot of imbe?
ciles and villains. Thc national councils are
controlled by Massachusett3,in thc persons of
Mr. Sumner and Mr. Butler-thc former,? a
conceited and ranting sophomore, whose
motley garb of learning has long been the
amusement of scholars,.and whose extrava?
gance and shameless'inconsistency, now ex?
posed upon the floor of Congress, have dis?
graced tlie party he leads; the latter, a
moral monster, whose nature is incapable of
shame or principle or courage. It is idle to
expect that peace and prosperity shall re?
turn to the country until thpsc custodians of i
the public safety have bven deprived of .
power. They are incompetejit for good,
potent for evil. So far as their statesman?
ship prevails, they cripple the States, divide
the people into conflicting castes, lessen the [
resources and multiply the expenses of gov
eminent, and enrich the few at the expense ?
of the many. <
And as are the leaders, such arc thc fol- <
lowers. No philosophic, commanding poli- 1
tician appears among them. No system 1
prevails. Every one drifts to and fro as Iiis 1
individual interests or the expediencies of |
the hour require. The great man of Con- '
grcss is the man who has said the last sharp
thing. Thus Mr. Farnsworth had a day's ?
fame from hitting Butler. Butler recovered |
his control of affairs by Iii;ting Cox. The i
General's elegant and eloquent reply to the i
little Congressman-"Shoo, fly, don't bodder i
"me!"-brought down thc house. Such arc 1
the political sensations of Washington. And 1
Columbia can do quito us well.
Even the glory of the "heroes"' of the war j
is tarnished by association with Radicalism.
Kilpatrick W03 extinguished in Peru; loose ,

captain of Sherman's freebooters. Sickies
is in Coventry among Hie proud Spauiards,
and has succeeded by his diplomacy in pte
venting the annexation, and perhaps thc
liberation, of Cuba. Grant lies in slale at
the White House-a defunct President. And
"Little Phil. Sheridan," true to the brutal in?
stincts which ravaged and burned the fer?
tile valley of tho Shenandoah, has now com?
mitted an outrage at thc M'est, which, as
perpetrated upon Indians and not upon white
people, mriy perhaps be called into account
-a crime which thc New Yoric World de?
nounces as "one of thc cruellest, most ex?
tensive and most disgraceful butcheries ever
"known in American history. A detachment
"of United States cavalrymen were dispatch?
ed by his orders to the winter quarters of tlie
"Piegan Indians, stole upon them in the mid?
dle of Januar}', when, as Sheridan says,
"they were very helpless, killed one huu

"the women and children were spared to die
"of cold and starvation, or were slaughtered

"fourty-four lodges, also a large amount of
"winter provisions, captured three hundred
"horses," ??e. Sheridan ordered his men to
"strike to hurt" and they seem to have faith?
fully carried out his orders. Thus does Radi?
calism carry out thc policy of peace
Heroes and Statesmen of Radicalism!
they are nil making their record-devising
bills and official reports, which the fnture
historian of tlie republic will blush to han?
dle, and which tlie next g?n?ration would
fain, in the name of liberty and humanity,
blot out forever.

REP AS A Rosa is SHE. A Novel. By the- Au?
thor of "Cometh ?p as a Flower" and "Not
Wisely, but Too Well." New York : D. Ap?
pleton & Co. Charleston : John Russell.
The author of these books is said to bc a
Miss Broughton, a young Irish lady and a near
relative of Mr. Sheridan LeFann, the novelist.
Both of her previous novels have been noticed
at length in these columns, and in pronouncing
upon her last effort we do not know that either
the tone or matter of our criticism of its pre?
decessors will require much modification.
In general tenor, in structure or plot, and in
thc types of character presented, the trio bear
a very strong family likeness. Esther Craven
differs in no essential respect from Nelly L'Es
strangc and Kate Chester; nor is St. John
Gerard a very different sort ol hero from
McGregor or Dare Stamcr. There is another
gentleman, to be sure, iu thc present story,
who is somewhat more human in his charac?
teristics limn Miss Broughton's'men generally
contrive to be-a certain Mr. Bob Brandon,
who is described as not much given to "pen?
sive musings upon the caducity of thc human
race " and to whom the heroine engages
herself in tho beginning of thc book,
apparently for no other reason than
because he asks her. Bob, however, is
much loo slow for the tastes of our "girl ol
thc period," and she accordingly proceeds to
get tip a very fast flirtation with the aforesaid
St. John Gerard, during a visit to thc latter's
country seat, the existence of B. B. being kept
a profound secret, even at thc expense of much
positive lying on Miss Essie's part. The flirta?
tion ls brought to a prosperous issue by an ex?
pedient invariably adopted at sucli crises by
Miss Broughtons heroine?;, and which never
fails of triumphant success, thereby showing
tito author to be a profound student of human
nature. It is thus related : "Neither thc pre?
paratory run, nor the tremondous bound she
take3, avails to save Miss Craven from th? fate
which her obstinacy and the comparative short?
ness of her legs render unavoidable. She
Jumps short, und falls forward on the wet bank,
her lavender kid gloves digging convulsively
Into it, and her legs disporting themselves
fish-like In the brook."
Of course St. John's strength of mind is im?
potent to resist sucli a situation. He picks her
up, consoles her and they become engaged,
B. B. being coolly Ignored. But it is not our
author's purpose that such duplicity should ?
unpunished; and morality is consequently vin?
dicated by a speedy discovery of Miss Essie's
contemplated bigamy. St. John casts her off
after resisting the temptations of St. Anthony,
and thc curtain descends on act first, to the
slow music of groaning and gnashing of teeth.
Act second opens with Miss Craven in a de?
cidedly drifty condition. Her only relative
dies of diptheria, B. B. departs to "the vexed
Bermootlues," an'l St. John to nowhere in par
ticulai Of course, she gdps out as a "lady's
companion," and equally naturally hits upon
lust the house where St. John elects to spend
his shooting holidays. It is a gloomy old
house, ornamented with pictures and statues
In Miss Broughton'* usual style, (which in?
cludes In one room "Susanna and thc Elders,"
"Jupiter and Leda," "Venus Sleeping, Sur?
prised by Satyrs," and on thc lawn "a unique
ind chaste piece of statuary entitled 'the Rape
jf the Sabines,'") and here our fair martyr
iles slowly away until St. John-who mean?
while has got himself engaged to "a splendid
animal, sleek and wldte as a sacred Egyptian
cow"-turns up, and the old game begins
igain. The two make love in thc rain until
Miss Craven nearly dies of lung fever, (which
really, under the circumstances, one can't help
thinking would have been thc best thing she
:ould have done,) and finally marry and are
tiappy ever afterward. The Egyptian cow re?
tires chewing tlie cud of a rather bitter fancy,
ind B. B. dies of pestilence at Bermuda. And
so, voil? tout! Our readers will see that Miss
Broughton makes no extravagant demands
jpon thc intellect of her public. Altogether,
.'Bcd as a Rose is She"-which, by the way,
das nothing In thc world to do with its absurd
dtlc-Is rather less objectionable than, if not
?ulte so amusing as, its predecessors. Thc
style or the book ls generally fresh, vivid and
idioma*!* and for a young lady, Its author
evidently "knows a thing or two."
