prominent Western senator, and has been signed
by erexy Republican in the Senate. To-day lt was
. circulated among the Re pub ii eau members of the
House, and sighed so far as lt was presented. The
object ls to convene a grand caucus of all the JLe
pugUcja*. in Congress-there being over twa
hundred members-foi t^e purpose of devising
ways- and. means, and setting forth the tis?es
which, toa party will present to the country In '
the_ com big fall elections for members of the
House of the Forty-second Congress. 'It ls Intend?
ed to constitute a grand campaign committee, to
furnish documents, Ac, and especially to look
after the condition of the Radical party m the
Southern States, where the contest ls represented
-as Ukelj to be close, with fair prospect of Conser?
vative results. This caneas will be held probably
nert weet, and lt win be more Important than an
-ordinary caucus, from the fact that it will make
declaration' of principles.
-For several months past.a committee or the
City Council of Macon have been in negotiation
with parties in New York, looking to the organ?
ization of a company, with a large amount of
capital, for the purpose of transforming the par?

mense cotton factory. AU the preliminary ar?
rangements have been completed, and in

oe signed and the work actively com?
menced. General AUred Iversoa returned from
NeWYork Sunday night with the news that he
had been s access ral in the formation of a com?
pany with a capital of $500,000. The City Coun
- eQ donatesaU the armory braidings, with twenty.
acres.or und attached.at the valuation of $15,000,
as stock la the company.. It ls understood the
company win swarm ave hundred masons and
carpenters toto the Immense structures and com?
plete them as rapidly as possible. There ls room
enough for 00,000'spindles, but the task or putting
everything in order ls almost herculean. If com?
pleted properly the world wui show few factories*
.of greater magnitude. No stock wUl be offered
-for sale in the South. The New York, company
take all save thar of $75,ooo reserved by the City
of Macon. ~
-The meeting of. the BvangeUcan Alliance la
New York next September will be remarkable
among religious gatherings for tbe presence and
.participation of a large number of the most emi?
nent representatives of that branch of the Chris?
tian faith, now living. Tho preparations Vor the
meeting bsve been long maturing, and have ex- ?
tended,'to every part of the world, where there are |
churches in sympathy with the objects of the I
proposed conference. The list of those from I
abroad, who are expected to take part in it, ern*
braces representatives of the nnlvertties of Ber?
lin, of Geneva, of Florence, of Gotha, and of
Halie, Rev. Edmund de Presen.ee, of Parts, Pro
resbor Tholuck, of Germany, Count Bernstoff,
Count de Gasparln, Dean Alford, the Earl of
Shaftesbury, and many others. The attraction to
scholars and divines on this side of the
Atlantic will be much more general
and imperative. The consensus or articles of
faith of the Alliance embrace thc divine authority
or the Old and Kew Testaments, tue right of pri?
vate judgment therein, the trinity, the depravity
of human nature, the incarnation and the atone?
ment, justification by faith, and eternal rewards
and punishments. The special topics announced
for discussion cover a wider range, and relate to
the most effectual methods of counteracting in?
fidelity and superstition especially in their organ?
ized forms, the harmony of science and revela?
tion, the religions aspects of popular education,
i the relations of Christianity to civil government,
I to philosophy, to social evils, to phllanthrophy,
and to other great interests of mankind. It is
i the first meeting of the Alliance in this country;
aU the former meetings having been held In Eu?
rope, where the association was formed twelve or
fifteen years ago.
The Pop alar Groundswell.
Day by day the Reform movement gathers
life and strength, and from every part of the
State the eyes of the people are turned with
eager expectation and confidence to the ap?
proaching June Convention. Many of the
connties arc already in motion. Marion will,
on Saturday, the 14th instant, elect dele?
gates to a county meeting to be held at the
courthouse on the 25th instant, for the pur?
pose of electing delegates to Columbia. Wil?
liamsburg holds her County Convention on
the first Monday in June. Union will come
nobly up to the work on the same day.
Barnwell, ever prompt, will hold Jier^nomi
nating convection on Saturday, the T4th in?
stant, and Laurens will do the same, on sales
day, in June. The other counties are, one
and all, preparing for action, and we can
promise our friends in the interior that
Charleston will speak on the 16th instant,
with no uncertain,voice. Keep the ball rol?
ling, and let every county send her very best
representative men, white and colored, to
the Council of The People in June !
It is announced that Mr. T. J. Mackey is,
by the grace of bis Excellency, "Governor
M Scott," a trial justice of South Carolina.
V7e are happy to find our expectation in this
case more than realized. Whoa any one
within the boundaries of this Stale ventures
to affirm that au official spider, reposing in
the middle of a gigantic web and gorged to
the throat with his plunder, is the only crea?
ture that can take care of the flies, the sus?
picion is naturally excited that he is the
spider's purveyor, and expects his portion of
the spider's prey. . Hence, in the present ap?
portionment, out of the revenues of the pub?
lic, there is a congruity and a fitness which
cannot but awaken the admiration of all con?
cerned. The serviceable lackey has often?
times to do some odious work, and the mas?
ter should not be ungrateful.
. And so far as the laws of the State are
concerned they might have a worse adminis?
trator. One who has tested their authority
and braved their sanctions, may, perhaps,
know the art of preventing others from vio?
lating them with impunity. Uuuer the new
regime we confidently anticipate an era of
peace and good will. There will be no
rowdyism in the streets, or the Council cham?
ber. The carrying of concealed weapons
will be strictly prohibited. An embargo will
be laid upon that kind of morphine which
decanters are used to keep in solution.
"Jawing" may be overlooked in some cases,
but jaw-breaking in none whatever. The
ballot-box will be zealously guarded. And
above all, no citizen will be allowed, under
any pretext whatever, to shoot at an Alder?
man-not even if that liberty should be at?
tempted with his brother's 3on. In short,
the ogis of (trial) justice will be extended
over eveey civil and personal interest, and it
may even come to pass that an honest, in?
dustrious notiv? shall be found to have some
rights which a Radical is bound to respect
lu the history of the world, and especially
in that of the South, in recent times, we have
met with Instances of strange conversions
and.transmutations. The greatest of Czars
was once a ship-carpenter at Greenwich;
Gustavus, the hero of Sweden, was a miner
in Dalecarlia; Louis Philippe taught school;
Napoleou III was a tavern lounger; Butler
voted for Jeff. Davis; Moses pulled down the
old flag, and, for aught we know, used it as
a pocket-handkerchief ; Mackey wore the
grey. All these are interesting and encour?
aging examples. They forbid us to despair
of anyman. It may be true, as the poet
sings, that the scent of the roses will cling
round a broken vase, but vessels that are
put to foul uses may be cleansed and disin?
fected. And possibly the judicial robe may
also stand woshiug. Daniel Webster dis?
played the narrowness of an old fogy when,
in eulogizing Chief Justice Jay, he said, that
the ermine, in falling upou him, touched
what was os pure as itself. We bespatter it,
smirch it and trample it into the mire, and
when if must be purified, intend to use
Cause and Effect.
It must be said for our colored people that
their proceedings on Wednesday last, in
honor of the adoption of the Fifteenth
amendment, were marked throughout by a
good order and a decorum highly-to their
credit. Noi3e, o? course, and cheering and
hilarity there was in abundance: but we are
glad to say, that we have not heard of a
single instance of drunkenness or unseemly
conduct in all the various gatherings that
marked the day. This gratifying result was
doubtless due io the fact that the colored
people had, in a great measure, the control
of the arrangements all to themselves, the
white adventurers who usually force them?
selves into the leadership and foment trouble
and discord having, for tue most part, on
this occasion, vouchsafed to let the freedmen
^ The Memphis Avalanche.
Mr. M. C. Gallaway, the originator of the
Memphis AvalancJie, and au editor and pro?
prietor of the paper, publishes a card in the
issue of the 30th ult, in which he states that
a disagreement between himself and the other
proprietor (Colonel Kellar) necessitates his
withdrawal from any further connection
with that journal. He adds that there is no
interruption of personal friendship, and the
difficulty is entirely in relation to the politi?
cal cour3e of the paper. I
A Scrub Race.
Our puissant Governor has at last made
up his mind abont the First Congressional
District, and ordered an election for Tues?
day, the 3l8t of May, to fill the seat in the
House of Representatives, out of which
Whittemore was so ignominiously kicked.
There will, we believe, be no nominating
convention of "The Parly," a3 all the candi?
dates likely to take the held are avowed Re?
publicans, and whatever fight there may be
will be purely a family quarrel. The Con?
gressional aspirant, "who can individually
crack the party lash with mo3t vigor and
perseverance will be most likely to win.
Meantime, outsiders vvill watch with curious
interest to see whether the Reverend Rogue
from Massachusetts can indeed make good
his boast to compel the freedmen of the dis?
trict to insult Congress and the Nation by
returning him to the sent he has disgraced,
or whether some colored champion of the
emancipated race will rise up, bold enough
to grapple with the perjured parson, and
strong enough to wre3t from him the plae?
that he would hold.
