in by Secretary Boutwell that gold had rallen to
thirteen and three-eighths. This had the effect of
producing a conversation concerning the proba
v Milt ?es of the very early resumption or specie
payments, which ended in the general disposition
among the members or the Cabinet to let the
future prosperity or the country regulate that
action as lt has been regulated hythe peacerul

-The earthquake in California, on the 17th
?ultimo, was not so disastrous in its results as at
j&Tst supposed. The tremor in San Francisco was
perceptible about 12 o'clock, M., and thc rush
. rrom the hotels was almost universal. The pavc
/ Stents in rront or them were crowded with fran -
- tlc forms in every variety or dress aud undress.
.Many streets were black with people, who had
rushed headlong down the -talrs in their haste to
?scape from cul the numerous tal1 buildings.
When the shock subsided, every corner had its
eager group, either staring with blank faces at
sundry ominous looking cracks in houses just va?
cated, or gesticulating rapidly with their hands
to convey to those who had not felt the shock
some idea of its violence. In some localities thc
oscillation was barely perceptible; In other places
lt was sufficiently violent to throw off their
feet those who did not happen to bc standing
firmly at the time. At various points, with?
in a radius of one hundred miles, thc earthquake
was noticed to a greater or less extent. In Santa
Clara, the vibrations appeared to be irom south?
west to northeast, and of sufficient force to sen?
sibly sway brick buildings and cause the occu?
pants to seek the streets. The shock appears to
have been more seusibly felt by those who were
in large buildings than by those who were In the
streets at thc time. Some place the length of Its
duration at thirty, while others at as low as fif?
teen seconds. In many stores, goods were thrown
from the shelves, doing considerable damage. In
Vallejo, the 6hock was slight and only lasted
about fifteen seconds. At Petaluma, the shock
was more severe; although of short duration, lt
had the effector driving people rather precipitous?
ly into the streets from brick and 6tone build?
ings. Slight vibrations were also felt in San Ra?
fael, Santa Rosa aud other places, but the ao
counts do not disclose that the loss of property
was very severe.
Thc Press Conference.
The Press Conference, which will take place
in Columbia on the ICth inst., does not con?
template, as we understand it, the putting
forth of a platform or any public action in
regard to the coming elections. The object
of the Conference is to bring the editors of
the Anti-Radical papcr3 together, so that they
may interchange views and opinions, and
make themselves acquainted, by conferring
together, with the feeling and desires of
every section of the State. A convention or
conference which looked to a public declara?
tion of policy would be manifestly unwise,
but the Press Conference, advised by the
Columbia Guardian and other of our con?
temporaries, may result in incalculable good
and can do no harm.
We again urge our contemporaries to be
represented at the Conference of the Anti
The Canse and the Name.
In politics it can rarely be said with truth
that there is little or nothing in a name.
And the history of parties in the United
States shows that many a stubborn fight has
been won, not more by the strength of men
and measures, than by the power of a name
in crystallizing popular thought and in giving
form and tangibility to popular opinion. The
masses do not split straws or chop logic; nor
do they distinguish the delicate shade or dif?
ference 'twixt tweedledum and tweedledee.
They need a word or a sentence which those
who run may road and understand, and
which, passed from mouth to mouth through?
out t'ae land, shall express in unmistakable
ternis what may be gained by victory or lost
by defeat Sometimes, indeed, it happens
that the name gives life and force to the
party after the principles which were its
backbone are surrendered and lost. The
watchword which united the North against
the South was still shouted forth when the
war, begun for the restoration of the Union,
was continued for thc oppression and perse?
cution of a people. And the cry which vital?
ized the energies of the Abolitionist was
continued when the efforts of thc party were
directed to the enslavement of the white
population of the South. But if a name can
strengthen, it can also make weak; if it can
attract, so also can it repel. The prestige
of a former success is no small advantage,
and the memory of by-gone defeat is omin?
ous of new disaster. Changing times aucl
new doctrines demand new rallying cries
and a new party name. And when that
name is at once the acknowledgment of a
fact and the declaration of a principle, its
value and importance arc hard to estimate.
For this reason we have advised, that thc
body of men who band themselves together
for the regeneration of South Carolina shall
be known as Hie Citizens' Party. For thc
first time there is in this State a movement
which knows no distinction of class or caste;
which recognizes white man and black man
as equal possessors of thc rights of citizen?
ship; which acknowledges that all men stand
on the same footing before thc law, and in
the enjoyment of every public privilege; and
which, besides, takes thc broad ground that
all mon, whether rich or poor, of high ur low
degree, must have a deep and lasting in?
terest in securing for thc whole people a gov?
ernment whicli shall reduce taxation, en?
courage industry, and represent the sweat of
the working man as well as the gold of thc
capitalist. All this is expressed and ac?
knowledged in thc name-CITIZENS' PARTY.
The whole platform, the whole declara?
tion of principio and purpose, is contained
in that name; for with us it is no question
of centralization or States' Rights, of Demo
erat or Republican, of white man or
black. All that we desire is to unite all
classes of CITIZENS in a mighty movement
for securing to South Carolina a government
which shall be honest, respectable and intel?
ligent. This i<5 the one aim and object of
tlie CITIZEKS' PARTY-this is all that we strive
for and may, if we will, obtain.
Decline of Amcricau Shipping.
While local politics and measures of par?
tisan legislation ure occupying to so great
an extent thc attention of Ibo country, a
great national interest languishes. Accord?
ing to the report of .Air. Nimmo, the chief
of the tonnage division of the Treasury De?
partment, British ships have superseded
American ships rot only in the international
commerce of the world, but also, to a very
great degree, in our own trade with foreign
nations. Although the general fact is known
by everybody, the illustrations adduced from
official statistics arc startling. Thus tn all
all the ports of the United States the per
C*nt".ge of foreign tonnage has largely in?
creased, while that of American tonnage has
largely decreased. The building of Ameri?
can ships and barks ^chiefly employed in
foreign trade,) fell from :?73 in the year 1835,
to 91 in the year 1?G0. During the for?
mer year the aggregate tonnage of the vari?
ous classes of vessels, built in the New Eng?
land States, was 32G,429 tons. Tho aggre?
gate tonnage of those constructed during
the latter year was '.?2,7 ju tons. Those ex?
amples, culled from the voluminous report,
will serve to show how groat and sudden has
been the decline of the American shipping
How to remedy the evil is not so dear.
Mr. Nimmo suggests that a largor number of
steamships be built, and that the govern?
ment, after the example of England twenty
years ago, give the commercial marine all
the encouragement which favorable legisla?
tion can nflbrd. But the chief of tonnage
does not venture to indicate the root of the
evil. English commerce was rebuilt by the
policy of free trade. The knife has been ap?
plied by a succession of statesmen, from
Huskisson to Peel and Gladstone, for Hie
excision of those "protected, interests" which
were the eating cancer upon the body politic
of Great Britain. Every political and finan?
cial difficulty bas been overcome by some
new provision in favor of liberty. And this
is just what we bave to do in the present
case. Class legislation must be done away
with. "The harpies of the shore" must
cease to "pluck tbe eagle of tbe seas."
It is idle for us to talk about the resusci?
tation of the American shipping interest so
long a3 steamers can be built more cheaply
upon the Clyde than they can upon the Hud
sou. The price of all building materials in
this couutry, from iron downwards, has been
ruinously enhanced by protective legislation.
Thus the first cost of American steamships
is higher, and, more capital being invested
in them, they cannot be worked to advan?
tage at the same rates as support their
rivals from tbe building yards of the Clyde,
the Tyne and the Mersey. Had Mr. Nimmo
been permitted to touch thc heart of his sub?
ject, he would have said that the decline of
American shipping is due to the restrictions
and limitations on American trade. The
statement, however impolitic, would have
been true. However disagreeable to party,
it would have served the people, who will
never consent that their country shall be?
come a commercial dependency of Great
Britain, and that the national flag shall be
driven from the ocean.
We all remember Die time when American
"liners" were the boast of our people and
the wonder of Europe. They were, be}'ond
all dispute, the most beautiful vessels that
breasted the waves of the Atlantic. Their
graceful outlines of hull, of sails, and of rig?
ging, their safety and their speed, had ac?
quired universal celebrity. But the fame of
these celebrated vessels belongs to the past.
One feels a flush of indignant spasm in
reading the statement of Mr. Nimmo, that
we are holding our own only in the number
of coasting schooners. Where the blue
water fairly begins, "Britannia rules the
"seas." While Butler <fc Co. are tinkering at
the ship of State, our splendid mercantile
marine is going down ! down ! down !
Thc City Police Force.
The plan of appropriating, a certain sum
for the expenses of each department of the
municipal government, is an excellent one,
and if the expenditures be kept within thc
limit of the appropriation, a salutary reform
will have bceH brought about. The city may
not, any more than now, receive the full
value of its money, but there will be some
bounds to the expenditures of the year.
It wa3 for the purpose of keeping the cost
of the Fire Department within the appropri?
ation that an ordinance was adopted reduc?
ing its pay and limiting tho number of com?
panies. This became absolutely necessary,
and it would seem that a similar ordinance is
required, for the regulation of the police. If
the number of policemen and their pay re?
main unchanged, even for another month,
the cost of the police will exceed the amount
appropriated for that department, and any
surplus that may exist in another depart?
ment cannot now be taken, we presume, to
cover the deficiency. The City Council,
therefore, will do well to consider at their
next meeting the propriety of so regulating
the police force that its cost for the year
shall not exceed the appropriation. Thi3
will be taken as an evidence that they are in
earnest in their expressed determination to
keep down the cost of the city government
so as to arrive at a reduction of taxation.
