-lu Ute United States District Court at Tren- I
too, ou Tuesday, during the progress of an nrgn

his face to the westerly wall of the co-.rt, lifted

shouted out, " It is no use, lt is no use, gentlemen

shrieked and fell towards the wall, but was fortn- (
nat ely caught and conveyed, in an insensible
condition, to bis ehambsr* in the Statehouse.

-Further accounts continue to reach us or the
Spring freshet at the North and East. At Selie

feet. A dispatch from Albany says that consld- | i
erablc damage was done to th? canal, though the
freshet in that city ls at t stand still. It was t
raining, however, and there were indications ot' a
furt her rise; all business along thc dooks was sus 1
-pended. The freshet ia Schoharie Valley is very
severe, doing much damage. Advices from Ro?
chester show that the canals cannot be opened at | ?
_an early day. The water eoatlaaes high in most
o.'the streams. From Portland, Maine, we have
thJ statement that the Saco River was higher OH
.Wednesday than it has been since 1827; lt rose
three feet on Tuesday. There ls great destruction
among booms and mills, Ac. At Concord the
Merrimack River is railing, and lt was thought ,
that railroad travel would seen be resumed. There
was a slight fall of Bnow on Thursday.
. -The boat race on the Thames between the Ox
I>>rJ aud thc Cambridge crews, on the Ssh instant, | S
was a most exciting one, only equalled by the
contest with the Harvards la3C year. When the
word for starting was given, the dark blue oat 8
or the Cambridge crew clutched at the water a
fraction or a second the soonest, and Oxford
jumped away with the lead. At flrst it seemed as
ir Oxford were to make a push early in the rape,
and Cambridge to wait on them In the hope partly
of tiring them out and rowing them down. The
Cambridge start was admirably free from flurry,
and thc sight of Oxford shooting suddenly altead
did not unset tlc in the least the methodical regular?
ity. Opposite thc boat-houses the two crews were
side by side. At Bishop's Creek, Gamlrklgc be?
gan to lead. At Craven Point, the Light Bitte, still
rowiug its unchanging stroke ol thirty-eight to
the minute, had drawn a quarter-length to the
front. Thence to the Soap Works, Cambridge con?
tinued to gain inch by iuch. Just by the Soap
Works, the Cambridge coxswain, mistaking thc
set ofthc tide, took his boat too Tar over toward
the Middlesex shore, heading for some minutes
directly toward tito furthest pier of the bridge,
nail-the same sharp-witted boy who steered
against Harvard-saw his opportunity. His
course had been raultle?.s from the beginning;
and now, calling on his crew for a spurt, he laid
thc head of his boat, haviug the inside or the
curve, straight for the nearest point through
Hammersmith Bridge, but, notwithstanding,
Cambridge passed under one quarter-length In
advance. From this point Cambridge found no
dtmculty in keeping and gradually Increasing her
superiority. Oxford never ceased to struggle
with that most indomitable courage which so
often distinguishes a losing crew, and when the
gun was fired, Cambridge was rather more th .n
two lengths ahead-winning the race. The ttmc
is variously given rrom 2i;< minutes to 22 min?
utes 5 seconds.
The day has arrived when al! men who
desire the best interests of the State should
look existing fac? s full in the face and shape
their course accordingly. For all practical
purposes the issues of the past, so far as the
State of South Carolina is concerned, are
held in mortuary abeyance. The mass of
our citizens recognize the facL The Con?
federacy is dead, and there is no Scripture
authority which encourages a hope of its
resurrection, even at the crack of doom.
But it is 3aid, "The colored man have ye i
"always with 3'bu.'* (If weare not correct
ia the language of this quotation, we are
confident that wc are in its interpretation
for this latitude. ) He is a free man, anda
permanent element in the political power of
the State and nation. We cannot get rid of
the fact if we would, aud a3 revolutions
never go backwards, we would not if we
could. The great majority of our citizens
who have heretofore acted with the Demo?
cratic party honestly accept this fact with
a!', its resultant consequences. Hence that
?.-?sue between the Republican party and the
Democracy no longer exists.
The question of Free Trade vs. Protection,
too, is not now strictly a party issue, because
the Republican press and statesmen are di?
vided in sentiment upon it, and even the
Democracy of certain sections uphold pro?
tection, as they conceive, in the interests of
their localities. In the recast of parties in
the future, issue will be doubtless joined on
that question; but it Ls not for the parties of
the State of South Carolina to-day. As for
States' Rights, we went into war upon that
issue, and thc war interpreted that idea ad?
versely to our theories. The doctrine of
States' Rights to-day is quiescent if not au
abstraction. It meekly asks to be let alone.
In the future its ghost may arise to tantalize
the vcr}' people who strangled it. Certainly
nobody proposes to go to war upon it, and
it can only come up in the forum and the
press. Then, as to paying the uatict.al debt
in greenbacks, wo have the satisfaction of
saying to plough-holder and bond-holder that
?old is quoted at 113.
What, then, is the issue between the CITI?
ZENS' REFORM PARTY aud the existing regime
in the State? Simply one of an honest ad?
ministration of our government. Republi?
cans, both white and colored, have expressed
their approval of the programme of the new
movement, and have signified their desire to
co-operate with it. Who oppose it? Pri?
marily the robbers who now control the State
and a large portion of tiie colored voters,
who, having been kept in ignorance of the
infamy of their leaders, blindly follow them.
Then there ore a few men among them who
ire opposed to Radical rule, and who, bar?
ing been sent whirling into thc vortex of a
new era, hate lo even whisper an aequies
;encc in the changed order of things, or to
believe thal the future is not to be au ad?
journed meeting of the past. To them, if
die Confederacy is not, nothing is. While
they play thc role of Lot's wife, and, like
lier, become admirable specimens of saline
statuary, they are of no practical use so long
is Turk's Island lies oft* our coast. But there
hey stand ready, either for the iconoclasm
)f chaos which shall destroy their value in
Ul artistic point of view, or for u possible
ntcrposition of Providence which shall re?
store, at least inpart, the old order of things.
They may as well forego both their dark de?
spair and their desperate hope. Chaos is
ndefinitely postponed. Providence is not
;oing to interveue by a special miracle. The
lueslion for these geutlemen to determine
is, whether they will give the aid of their
name3, their intelligence, their influence,
their active co-operation and their votes, to
insure the success of a movement inangura
:ed to turn public misfortune into publicsnc
;ess and build up a wealthy, prosperous and
intelligent commonwealth, in place of an
impoverished and tax-burdened State; or
whether they are willing to be recognized as
inte-bcUnm Saurians, to remain unhonored
ind cveu unused until, in the unknown fu
Atro, the bones of their political corpus
mall be exhumed and be put ou the market
ts phosphates to fertilize the political fields
)f future nges. Now, they are worse than
iseless. They not only throw away the
lower they have, but their example prevents
he active co-operation of many who would

litizens of Orangcburg, without regard to

What Wc Meao>
The Abbeville Press and Banner says:
"If we understand what is meant by the 'Citi
"'zena' Party' movement, it isthat for the
:'nonce we ignore national issues-not that
"Democrats are to give up anything, uot
"that Republicans are to change anything;
"but that retaining and cherishing nil that
.'characterizes and distinguishes them, they
"will yet harmonize, and putting out of view
"diff?rences on national issues, they will yet
"unite upon a common State platform-hon
"esty in office and economy in the adminis?
tration of the finances. Such we under?
stand to be the significance of the resolu?
tions of 'the Press Conference.' They are
"silent upon national issues-they substi?
tute nothing for the faith of Democrats
"and Republicans-they put forth no party
"shibboleth. This seems to be so clear that
"he that runs may read."
This is our understanding of what is meant
by the CITIZENS' PARTY movement, aud by
the resolutions of the Press Conference.
And when the June Convention meets, it
will, we hope, enunciate just these principles
in such a way that DO Democrat and no Re?
publican shall mistake or misunderstand
How to Double the Value of Cotton.
The New York Times, in discussing the
project which wa3 in such favor just previous
to the war, of manufacturing iu the South a
large share of the cotton crop into yarns and
coarse cloths, instead of shipping it to Eu?
rope in the bale, remarks : "By doing so
"the staple would be iucreased in value by
"the addition of labor fully one hundred per
"cent. The average crop is now worth two
"hundred million dollars, and if half of it
"were spun it would realize three hundred
"million of dollars, besides employing thou
"sands of operatives and uniting large emi
"gration. It is claimed that yarns can be
"manufactured at the South of equal quaiity
"to those made abroad, an J that they would
"sell readily in European markets. The
"consequence would be that the surplus
"spinners of the Old World would be obliged
"to come to the raw material, instead of the
"raw material going to them as now, and,
"moreover, a very large saving in freight
"would be effected. The scheme i3 certainly
"a dazzling oue, and we shall be glad to see
"it successfully carried into operation. The
"South now hail less than two hundred thou?
sand spindles, while the North has 5,848,
"47". If the South could spin its own cot?
ton, or one-''alf of it, and send it abroad in
"the shape of yarn, the above proportion in
"spindles would eoon be reversed."
How to Advertise.
The secret of profitable advertising ?3 to
advertise regularly, but to change the form
of the advertisement frequently, so that it
may be continually attractive. An adver?
tisement which i3 inserted for three or six
months soon becomes familiar with the reg?
ular reader, who passes it by without notice.
But if a fresh one is often presented, it catches
his eye aud is read. It is a great mistake to
suppose the advertisements in a paper are
never noticed unless they cover a large
space. It is the short paragraphs which are
the more attractive, and aro read three
times where au advertisement a column in
length is read once. And a3 a rule, ninety
live readers in a hundred now-a-days read the
short, sharp business advertisements in a
live newspaper just as regularly and faith?
fully as they do the editorial and news col?
TriE NEWS did not especially refer to the
Columbia Phoenix in speaking of "themnchi
"ualions of timorous friends." But if the
cap fits, our Columbia contemporary may
wear it and welcome !

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICE8.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them to the oot'.ce of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a etty or town or any note in the
country luto which they have not fonnd their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and daily Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Ilelng determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further improved
their qnallty, and now we firmly and honestly be-.
Heve t hat they stand without a rtvaL Our Vanilla
Extract cauuot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of VaulUa Beans. Hi
short, we think lt the best that ls made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges In the coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete lu price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which are reaUy but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
