-The attempt or the inmates or the Hudson
County, New Jersey, jail to escape on Sunday
night, was a triumph or human ingenuity. The
ringleaders or the plot, securing several table
knives and a file, converted thc knives into saws;
then, being allowed to roam In the prison all day,
tkeprisoners repaired to what is known as the
iath-room, a small dungeon in an extension In
?he rear, over which ls a skylight and underneath
iron crossbars. They made a kind or swing, ex?
tending from the bars down, placing the saws
ai the lop. Then they invited all the small boys
of-therneighborhood to enjoy themselves by swing?
ing! They kept the saws continually at work.
Thus they had sawed the bars nearly through,
when their trick was discovered and the ring
-Jeaders'at once placed in solitary confinement.
horrid death from starvation has just been
brought to light by the sanitary inspectors or
yew Tarir'. These officers In making their rounds
searching-for cases at "relapsing rever," acci?
dentally heard of a man who was lingering in
extreme" destitution in one of the damp and
filthy ceUars or Water street. They sought the
J*te"miiea and descended to the basement by a pair
OTdtTspldated stairs. Once upon the landing or a
-dari:, dreary and flithly hovel, they rapped for
admittance. There was no response. They rap?
ped again aud again, ami- yet ail was stillness.
For a quarter of an hour they kept up their en
deavor to gain the Interior, bat without avail.
Finally they used violence, and burst the door
open, and stood "deep into the darkness peer?
ing." They groped about blindly In search of the
victim. They could not find him, and were
about to give it up, when ono of the
inspectors stumbled against something
which turuod out to be the form of a man pros?
trated by starvation, aud suffering at the same
time from pneumonia. There was no furniture
in the room, no comforts, no necessaries of exist?
ence; not even light, hardly life, but trie clear
shadows of inhuman death. The apartment was
small, and dirtier than thc foulest sewer. The
celliug was several feet below the level or the
sidewalk, and the floor was covered by stagnant
water, emitting foul vapors. In such a place as
this the poor unfortunate man, going on toward
sixty years or age, had lived Tor flvc days, slowly
dying for want or nourishment. He subsisted
during that time on one pounder butter crackers,
and was utterly unattended and uncared for.
His removal to Bellevue Hospital was promptly
secured, and death thc next day ended his suf?
It is something at least to be thankful for,
that a Radical Congress has for once done
an act which must be heartily applauded by
honest men all over the land, irrespective of
party or creed, and even of "race, color or
previous condition." The paltry trick by
which the Reverend and Representative Ras?
cal contrived, at the eleventh hour, to escape
the form, though he ha3 fully incurred the
disgrace of an expulsion, is just what might
have been expected from so slippery a saint
But what shall be said of a Governor who
consents so readily to make himself a party
to a scheme, thus suddenly concocted, to
cheat National justice of its due ? "Was it
not enough that black thieves and cut?
throats, whom it had cost the people thou?
sands to convict, should be turned loose by
the score in every section of the State? Was
it necessary, in order to keep up Hie
Governor's reputation for consistent clemen?
cy, that the mantle of "our beloved State"
should thus have been officially thrown over
admitted corruption, at which Congress and
the country alike stand aghast ? Or, may?
hap, as our Washington telegram suggests,
has some cogent reason, some of that fellow
feeling which is said to make us wondrous
kind, constrained the Governor, sooner than
to hesitate about accepting the resignation,
to consign to a common infamy upon the
record the namoa of Whittemore and Scott?
We look to the Military Committee of the
House to make thorough work of what it
has so bravely begun. Whittemore, bad as
he is, is quite as honest, and, if anything,
rather more respectable, than Bowen and
H?ge. Against these two men let the ener?
getic inquiries of the committee be promptly
directed. Wc ourselves have been assured,
I within the last twenty-four hours, by a
South Carolinian, whose radicalism has
been too notorious to be questioned, that
he could prove that Bowen had received
one thousand dollars for naming the son of
one of our present State officials for a endet
ship ; and we believe it will be found that,
though the youth has since been .dismissed
from the^ Academy for incompetency, the
money has never been refunded. This is
but one of a host of charges against thc
honorable Representatives of this State,
which are well worth looking into.
The Regeneration or thc State.
We are not disposed to question the dis?
interested sincerity of our contemporary,
the Columbia Phoenix, either when it advo?
cates tue suicidal policy of "every man for
"himself," or when, as now, it insists with
some warmth that "a wise, moderate and
"progressive Democracy" be put before the
country. It is only natural, however, that
gentlemen holding high official position in
the old Democratic organization of thc State
should bc loath to countenance any move?
ment whose dominant principle is, that thc
first step toward success is an ignoring of
the name and style of any parly which is
connected indissolubly with a dead and
buried past And it can easily be under?
stood that our Columbia contemporary, de?
voted to the watchwords of other days, may
unwittingly treat the name, rather than the
platform, of tho State Opposition party as
the one great thing for which to contend.
This leaning is made evident by the com?
ments of the Phoenix upon what it calls the
proposition "to sink the Democracy in a
"sort of hybrid organization, which shall be
"neither fish, flesh nor fowl, and which, in
"seeking to please everybody, will satisfy no
"one." The Phoenix also gives a ghastly list \
of woes which this hybrid organization may
bring upon the State, asserting that it will
"take the soul out of thc anti-Radical move?
ment," and "disgust the very bone and
"sinew of the anli-Rudicalists, who are car
"nest, working Democrats." These few words
show thc obliquity of the political vision of
the Phoenix, in assuming that an "auti-Rad
"ical party" is necessarily "a Democratic
"party," and also iu declaring that an aban?
donment of a party nanr;, without any
abaudonment of principle, will disgust thc
men whose chief object in voting with the
"Democratic" opposition in 1SGS was what
it will be in voting with the Citizens' Party
in October next; that is, to root out official
and personal corruption, and give the State
an honest, impartial and economical ad?
We do not pretend to deny that the men
who voted with the Democratic party at the
last elections will be the boue and sinew of
the Citizens' Party. The error of the Phoe?
nix, and a grievous error, lies in the assump?
tion that the white voters sustained the Dem?
ocratic party purely because it was a Demo?
cratic party; while the common-sense truth
of the matter is that they voted with the
Democratic party because it was the only
party in the State which waa arrayed iu di?
rect and open opposition to Radical extrava?
gance and corruption. And the reasons
which forced these good and true men to
work patiently and earnestly in 1S5S, will
compel them to work more ardently as mem?
bers of the Citizens' Party in the fast ap?
proaching elections. The Citizens' Party
does, indeed, offer to the people of the State,
every principle which could be incorporated
in the platform of "a wise, moderate and
"progressive Democracy." And it gives more
to the whole people than any traditional
party would be willing to do. The platform
of the Citizens' Party contemplates :
1. A frank and full recognition of the civil and
political equality of the white and black citi?
zens of South Carolina.
2. -nsequent repudiation, iu State con?
tests, ol old party name3 an I old party
3. A bold aud outspoken opposition to
personal and official corruption.
4. The election to office of honest and
capable men, identified in interest with the
State, without regard' to their position in
past contests, or whether they voted for
Grant or for Seymour.
5. VICTORY. And whatever may be neces?
sary to secure it
No Democratic platform can give more
than this, and it is doubtful if it could give
as much. And no Democratic platform,
whatever its length or strength, could hold
all the white people together, or draw to its
support enough colored votes to make suc?
cess a reasonable certainty. We should,
moreover, like to know what there is iu the
name or principles of the Citizens' Party
which will alienate the affections or repel
the support of a single honest man ? 1. It
will not drive away tho colored voter, be?
cause it recognizes his every right, as Tully as
they are recognized by any party in or out
of the State. 2. It cannot drive away the
Democrats, because it promises them low
taxation, public justice and private security.
3. It will not repel the respectable white
Republicans, because it admits the existence
of accomplished events, calls a spade a
spade, and makes the fight upon those ques?
tions only in which the interests of all class?
es are ono and the same.
Tho object is to unite all staunch and re?
sponsible men in a mighty movement for
the regeneration of thc State Government,
which cannot be done under either a Demo?
cratic or Republican banner. The Citizens'
Party i3 no more nor less than a grand Anti
Radical movement, whose name explains ita
central idea,-that all its members stand
upon the same footing as CITIZENS, and that
in its success every citizen has a deep and
abiding interest. This may be"neither fish,
flesh nor fowl," according to the acute natu?
ralist who presides over the political desti?
nies of the Phoenix, but it is a sound, whole?
some food, upon which the body politic will
'thrive and flourish.
