-The escape of Colonel Verger from jail in
Jackson, Mississippi, has already been an?
nounced by telegraph. At daybreak on Sun?
day he scaled the board fence which surround?
ed the prison yard. Thc first two nights after
being handed over to the civil authorities, he
was confined in one of the iron cages. Sub?
sequently more comfortable quarters were as?
signed him In a room without fastenings on
either window or door. About five o'clock on
the morning of the escape he sent the
Jailer for a cup of coffee to the adjoining
market-house, and during his absence availed
himself of a convenient empty barrel and a j
box, and by their aid easily reached thc top
of the thirteen-foot fence, taking with him
in his flight the jailor's revolver. Verger mn.';:

entering the bed-room of Lieutenant Appleton,
inquiring for his friend, and was told that he
roomed immediately below. Thither he bent
his steps, md subsequently left in company
with Ham Hon. In thc faint light of the morn?
ing, Lieutenant Appleton failed to recognize
his early visitor. Squads of military, on the
requisition ot Governor Alcorn, have been con?
stantly searching for the culprit, but at latest I

TUE significant leading articles from the
country press, which we print thi3 morning,
show how thoroughly the public mind is in
accord with the four resolutions of the Press
Conference, and the principles advocated
and explained in the columns of this paper.
The Tarn of the Tide.
-The popular mind ia slow in giving ex?
pression to the convictions forced upon it?
luring long seasons of silent thought, and
when the decisive moment comes for the
pent-up sentiment to be uttered, the change,
;o the unobservant and careless, is as sharp?
ly sudden as the breaking up in spring of
.he ice fields of the North. To those who
io not watch and wait for the turning of the
ide, who do not remember that long ten
lion will bend the stoutest bow and snap the
oughest cord, who do not reflect that ab
itract idea cannot, in the long run, over?
come thc concrete need of daily bread-the
pontaneous uprising of a whole people,
vheiher against a form of government or a
orm o? political belief, is as startling and
itrange as the quick thunder-clap which
>reaks the calmness of a summer day. The
imes and manners change, and the people
iMgn the same. They cling to the old war
!ry,? and follow the accustomed leaders.
Che fools who rush in where wise men fear
o tread, are greeted with hoots and jeers or
rorse. And yet in the twinkling of an eye
he people will elevate the new and degrade
he old, changing in an instant from thc ex
reme of one idea to the extreme of its exact
everee. In truth the transformation i3 not |
apid but slow-it is only the result which
? sudden. Under the calm and smiling sur
ice th? new sentiment and new resolve
;ather strength and force. They make no
ign until, with resistless power, they burst
sunder every barrier, springing full-armed
oto th? arena of life. It is evident, then,
hat it is as dangerous to be in. advance of
lublic opinion ia the crisis of the destiny of
. nation, us it is ruinous to log behind when
he public tongue ?3 loosed and its steadfast
?oughts are spoken.
A vast and momentous change is now
.orking in' South Carolina, tho fruit of four
ears of insecurity, hardship and unrest,
a the curliest days of so-called peace, thc
e?ple looked for deliverance to a mighty
nlitical party which, defeated again and
gain, was still strong in the affections of
ailing millions. But th'i3 party had mis
alculated the force of accomplished events
nd . was itself overthrown. They turned
bein gaze to thc first man in thc republic,
rho had been our foe but was now our
riend. And he, also, was hurled from do
ainiou and could not save. They receded
tep by step from their advanced positions,
nd the moro they gave the more was de
ianded of them. They joined battle with
heir political antagonists, and fought with
he desperation of despair. But once more
hey encountered disaster and defeat They
liled in all that they a''empted. No politi
al crj% no political contest, no political
truggle, availed them one jot. And in the
?leanwhile the public mone .vas squandered,
be public means was eaten up by taxation,
he laborer was turned against his em
loyer, trade languished and would not be
uickened into heal.hy life. The golden
rain waved in the fields, and the fleecy cot?
on bleached the parching soil; but the State
as still prostrate, and her people, however
hey walked erect, had no certainty for to
ay and little hope for thc morrow.
Peering into the past, the people saw that
diat they wanted was PEACE-a peace which
alf a decade of toiling and striving had not
iven them. They demanded an honest and
qual government, economy iu the adminis
.atiou of public affairs, an union of all
lasses for the improvement of the State, a
eneral joining of hands,that every man might
0 his part in restoring our ancient wealth
nd increasing our ancient prosperity. And
l?ese they saw were wholly distinct from the
olicics of the past or the political parties of
ie present. They demanded no triumph of
its party or that, of one color or the other;
ll that they demanded was such a govcrn
ien? as would give equal and exact justice
) all, and combine the CITIZENS of the State
1 one grand PARTV to give South Carolina the
.isac men aud thc public measures neces
iry to the consummation we aliso devoutly
And this is the meaning of the spontane
U3 declarations which come to the seaboard
?om the mountains-which are murmured by
ie palmettos of the low country, and swell
ito broader harmonies among tho pines of j
ie North and West. Thia is the meaning
f the sturdy avowal, coming from every
Marter of tue State, that the people have
abandoned for the time political thought and
political action, and address themselves now
to the mighty work of retrenchment and re?
form. This is the meaning of the declara?
tion of the Press Conference, that all the
friends of good government must band to?
gether to obtain the good and avoid the bad.
The people of South Carolina stand to-day
upon a platform as, broad as civilization and
as strong as the universe itself. They cast
aside personal jealousy and party feeling:
they put away from them sectional thought
and prejudice of race. The skirmishers
in front have been withdrawn, and the
mass of CITIZEN'S of South Carolina move
forward in line, bearing on their ban?
ners thc watchwords of the day-EQUAL
RIGHTS AND EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL THE
CITIZENS OF TEE STATE, AND AN HONEST
AND ABLE REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT FOR
ALL SOUTH CAROLINA. This is the war-cry
of thc people. And they who will not move
forward and swell the grand refrain, will be
buried with the past which we love, and for?
gotten with other obstacles met and over?
come on tho road to fame and fortune.
Wronged by Fame.
We have received a letter from Mr. George
F. McIntyre, a member of the State General
Assembly, in which he denies that he was
connected with the organization known aa
thc "Forty Thieves." Mr. McIntyre says:
"Not only was I not the 'captain' of this
combination you apeak of, but also not even a
member, as my record on thc journal of the
House will prove, having voted no on every
important measure, l pass which, money, it
has been said, was used; as for instance, the
Gold bill, Consolidation bill, and sustained the
veto on the Phosphate bill."
If the facts be as stated by Mr. McIntyre,
it i3 certainly very much to be regretted that
he should, as stated in THE NEWS, "enjoy
"the reputation of having been the captain"
of the "Forty Thieves," and that he should
have been one of those legislative lambs
"heard of outside most frequently" in con?
nection with that organization.
Asserting their Party Claims.
We hear it stated that the friends of Whip?
per nre preparing to put him in the field for
election to Congress in the place of Bowen,
and that Whittemore will haye a formidable
antagonist before the black constituency of
his district in the person of Elliott While
neither Whipper DOT Elliott has ever been a
special favorite of THE NEWS, wc must do
both the justice to say that either would
make an incomparably better representative
in Congress than the mean white men whom
they aspire to succeed.
AT THE late conference of the press in Co?
lumbia, it was resolved that a permanent
association of its members in this State
should be formed. A committee consisting
sf the following gentlemen was appointed
io report upon this subject to a meeting to

nto a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There is hardly a elty or town of any note in the
lountry Into which they have not found their
viv. The reason of thia widespread popularity
ind dally Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
heir peculiar excellence and intrinsic warts.
Seing determined to make them the Standard Ex
Tacts of the day, we have still further Improved
;belr quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
love that they stand without a rival. Oar Vanilla.

more, we think lt the best that ls made, at least,

nany of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the

indeserving of the name.
