author, hoped it would soon qe reported and
pof oed into a law.'
-Full details 3fthe public execution in Ha?
vana, on toe 4th Instant, by means of the gar?
rote, of General Golcuria, the distinguished
Cuban leader, shows that he walked to the I
scaffold manfully and died bravely for the I
country he loved BO well. Immediately upon
bis arrival at Havana, his captors, with savage
joy depicted on their faces, hurried him at
once to the public prison, where a drumhead
court-martial soon alter assembled, and with
"double-quick'' proceedings sentenced him to
be garroted at 8 o'clock the following morning.
A few minutes before that hour he was taken
from the chapel, where he had been
confined during the night, and escoried
under a heavy guard to the Castillo
del Principe, where the garrote platform
had been erected. A priest was allowed to
accompany him to thc scaffold. Goldina's
step was firm, and Iiis countenance expressed
neither fear nor-remorse. Looking for a mo?
ment at thc chair, ho calmly turned around
and held out his hands to the executioner to bc
tied. Thc iron ring was fastened around hts
neck, the executioner gave a turn of the
wrench, the head fell on one side, and Goicu
ria was no more. He was given no opportuni?
ties to make an ante-mortem address, but still
managed to shout "Viva Cuba !" the beating of
drums preventing anything else he said from
being heard. The old general leaves a wife,
daughter and son. The wife and daughter are
in Brazil, the daughter having married a Bra
i zllian count.
CITIZENS OF CHARLESTON ! the lime of in?
action and. sluggishness is past. Now must we
strike for Reform, or through weary years be
the bumble bondsmentrf Dishonesty and Vice.
There has been, and is, too much despon?
dency and despair in the hearts of the peo?
ple. We hold our destiny in our own hands.
We can win, if we will. And if this people
will not, for honor and for fame, for political
liberty and for personal security, for purity
on the bench and for honesty in public office,
unite in a mighty movement for Retrench?
ment and Reform, then is there no longer
blood in the vein3, or marrow in the bones,
of the free men of South Carolina.
To-night, in Mass Meeting, the Reformers
will make their onslaught upon Corruption
and Fraud. And the tidings of the attack,
and its issue, will go forth with lightning
speed to every town and hantlet in the land.
The State is looking to Charleston to open
fire upon the enemies of good government.
We must put behind ns the memory of gloom
and depression. We must remember the
motto of our people, and live on in hope,
however dark the sky. We must stand to
our guns unflinchingly and never give up
the ship while rests a shot in the locker.
Citizens of Charleston ! Your presence is
demanded at the Reform Mass Meeting to?
night. IQ the name of right and truth, in
the name of justice and equality, in the name
of shattered Charleston, in the name of a
ruined State, we exhort you to muster your
peaceful legions, and throng the Hibernian
Hall this night. s
The enemy trembles and is afraid. Already
the wise ones abandon the sinking craft.
One united effort here io Charleston, one
plain expression of the fixed resolve of the
people, and the whole State will take up the
refrain and chant in sonorous tones the ma?
jestic hymn of Unity and Peace.
Victor}* is ours if we work and plan aright
And our first coign of vantage is the gath?
ering of tho People to-night.
Cheating the People oat of their Schools.
The utter faithlessness of the Scott party
to the men who raised them to the high
places they now disgrace, ls shown in every
circumstance of their official career. Not
satisfied with speculating in State bonds and
railroad stocks, which enable the Ring to
dress in purple and bathe in Samian wine; '
not content with piling loan on loan, and
debt on debt, until the liability of the State
to the public creditor is doubled in twelve
months; not satisfied with. causing South
Carolina to be branded by The Nation as the
place in which "politics have reached the
"lowest pitch c%legradation," these traitors
go further still and aim a deadly blow at the
very laborers and workingmen whom they
most profess to love. They have driven
capital from our shores, they have made
business progress tediously slow, They have
taken the hammer from the hands of the
mechanic and the hoe from the grasp of the
laborer And, woree than all, they neglect
the most solemn duties imposed on them by
the law-they do nothing fir the education
of the people.
More thau two years ago the Reconstruc?
tion Convention ordained thal the Geuorai
Assembly should provide, by suitable laws,
for the appropriation of tiie Citadel and
grounds for educational purposes. But the
Citadel is still occupied by the United States
troops, and the children of the working?
man are without the collegiate education
which was ordered to be prepared for them.
And if the General Assembly, at the dicta?
tion of Scott aad his menials, has failed to
perform the plain letter of ita duty, the
same must be said of the Ce au ty School Com?
missioners. Senator Cain, the editor of the
Missionary Record, who two weeks ago
denounced the corruption and frauds of
the Land Commission and the county offi?
cers, now demands, and with reason, a
more rigid enforcement of the school laws of
tie Stale. This colored senator, a man
whose Radicalism is unquestioned, says that
the fact is established that "there are not
"schools in oue out of every dozen districts
"within a county, outside the cities."
Further he says :
"In St. Paul's, in St. Andrew'3, and all along
"the Savannah Railroad, there arc not four
"schools from Charleston to Pocotaligo. In
"Christ Church, St. Thomas, St. Michael's, St.
"Denis, St. John's Berkeley, St. Stepiten's
and other points, there are not more
"than six schools if that many. Up the Santec
"there ls none, and everywhere complaints
"are rifo of the parable neglect of the oflicers
"to establish schools for the children.1*"
All over tho State it is the same story.
The whole receipts from the capitation tax,
and fifty thousand dollars besides, were ap?
propriated to educational purposes. This
largo sum of money has, we suppose, benn
spent, and where are thc new schools,
where are the new scholars, where is the
fulfilment of the pledge? of the Scott Ring
that they would educate the people ?
The truth of it is, and men of all parties
know it, we need Reform in the Executive
Mansion, Reform iu Finance, Reform in thc
Legislature, and such a Reform in the
school system that there shall he a teacher |
and a school wherever enough children can
be found to fill it. This is a part of the
work of Reform, and well may Senator Cain
warn the culpable commissioners that "if
"they longer neglect the duties devolved
"upon them by law, then the people will, in
"the next erection, select some one who has
"the interests of the people more at heart
"than those who are now receiving compen?
sation for neglecting the education of the
"youth of the State." And the first step in
the right road i3 this : Let every man who
hos a child to educate attend, without fail,
the Reform Mass Meetiug at the Hibernian
THc Republicans and Reform.
With the honest Republicans among us
those to whom their party i3 the result of
political sympathies or convictions, and not
a mere cloak for every scheme of public
plunder-no man in South Carolina need any
longer have any cause of quarrel. All the
ends for which the party has so long been
striving have, in this State at least, become
accomplished facts, and, right or wrong,
the principle of the Equal Rights of All Men,
which is the cardinal maxim in theRepublican
creed, here has full and undisputed sway.1
Now, then, is the time when, for the sake of
the party itself, all respectable Republicans,
white and colored, should unite in the effort
to purge t he State Government of the shame?
less corruption which is their disgrace in the
eyes of the whole country. Now should
they stand shoulder to shoulder with those
from whom they have honestly differed in
the past, to secure for our tax-burdened peo?
ple the RETRENCHMENT and REFORM which
every good citizen, of whatever party, so
earnestly desires. And, iu answer to the
charge sb persistently made by the hireling
trumpeter of Governor Scott, (which is sup?
ported from week to week out of the money
robbed from the people, and the very exis?
tence of which depends upon the continu?
ance of the opportunity for public pecula?
tion and official fraud,) that the REFORM
movement is a Democratic movement in dis?
guise, we will only quote the following edi?
torial, from THE NATION, the acknowledged
leader in ability, consistency and philosophic
thought of the Radical press of the country:
(From The Nation, tor May 12.]
"The 'Reform Party' in South Carolina, of
"the establishment of which we spoke some
"weeks since, seems to bc well under way and
"to bo increasing in size and spirit with grati
"fylng rapidity, though we fear there is but
"little chance of its carrying the elections;
"iAe State seems to lie almost completely at the
"mercy of the white and black corruplionists
"to/io have been plundering it. for some years
"pas/; and that thc negro voters ar? not yet
"educated to their responsibilities is. clear
"enough to everybody; and if not, lt soon will
"bc, for Mr. B. F. Whittemore ts to be sent
"back to Congress, we sec. Apparently, noth?
ing could be worse tbaD the conduct of the
"high officials of the State. It ls, for instance,
"constantly asserted, and is nowhere- denied,
'?that a senator, Leslie by name, who held thc
"office of Land Commissioner, and spent alto?
gether some $600,000 of the State's money,
"and then resigned without satisfactorily ac
"counting for much of it, opeply declared that
"if thc Advisory Board tried to.make him ac?
count for it, he would have the chairman of
"that body 'in his own penitentiary in less
" 'than two weeks.' The Advisory Board con?
sists of the Governor, the Attorney-General,
"the Secretary of State, the State Treasurer,
"and the Comptroller-General. More than
"this, when Leslie 'resigned,' and lhere was
"talk in the Senate of compelling him to e.v
..plain his conduct in office, he coolly inquired
"which senator would like to begin, and dared
"his colleagues to press him for thc reasons of
"bis resignation; and none of them pressed
"him, he having a tongue in his head and
"knowing certain secrets. Plenty more things
'.ot this sort might be related, and have been,
"and nothing is surer than that the rescue of
'?'South Carolina from her jtresenl rulers is a
"thingfor ichich decent men cvennchere-Dcm
"ocrals and Republicans, ESPECIALLY ItBPun
"I.ICANS-should pray reith fervor. As we say,
"however, there seems to be as yet but Utils
'.ground for hope, though probably a thorough
"organization of the Lew parly and some hard
"work may secure a Legislature for next year
"which shall be less of a disgrace U> civiliza
"Mon tlian thc last was. Wo must not forget
"to mention that the T. J. Mackey who flg
"ured in a shooting affray in thc Common Coun
"cil some months sluce, and who escaped pun?
ishment by pleading ^morphine,' has lust
"been made a Trial Justice by uoveraor Scott."
REPUBLICANS! Citizens! Business Men!
We ask you to ponder over these deliberate
expressions of thc first Radical journal in
the land, und, thou hesitate, if you can, as
good citizens and honest men, to swell the
great popular uprising for REFORM. The
voice of Charleston goes forth to-night to her
sister counties. See to it that it be, indeed,
the voice of her whole people, without dis?
tinction of clas3, color or political creed !
THE Abbeville Press and Banner thinks
that the meaning of the speech of Land
Commissioner DeLarge, delivered at Abbe?
ville ou Wednesday last, wa3 just this : "The
"Reform movement will not injure the color
"ed voter, bat will deprive the office-holders
"of the monopoly they now enjoy. 'To
"the victors belong the spoils,' and the
"fewer the claimauts, the larger the share
"of each. He claimed a monopoly of love
"to thc colored man, because he wou'.d seek
"to retain a monopoly of the office; in his
.'gift. Thus does selfishness-grasping greed
"of office-assume the garb of philanthropy."
This makes it all the more important for
the colored people to muster in force at the
Mass Meeting to night.
A CORRESPONDENT in Barnwell gives some
samples of Scott taxation. Colonel B. before
the war paid $100 ; now he pays S100. Mr.
G. D. paid before the war S60, and now pays
$300. Dr. H. paid $12 before the war, and
now pays $IC0. And it must be taken into
consideration that, upon all this property,
fences have been levelled and destroyed,
gin-houses have been burned and imple?
ments lost. The shoe pinches in the same
place in Charleston County, and the remedy
is-a full attendance at the Hibernian Hall
CAPTAIN DUNN, who is canvassing the first
Congressional District in opposition to Whit?
emore, addressed the electors of George?
town last Friday. Whittemore was defended
by Representative Jones, who was subse?
quently flayed by Representative Bowley,
who denounced Whittemore and Jones in a
very handsome manner. The Dunn meet?
ing was decidedly successful, and as much
will be said to-morrow of the Reform Mass
Meeting to be held at thc lliberniau Hall to?
Give Them Light.
THE brazen mouth piece of the Scott Party
is politely invited to publish, for the informa?
tion of its limited circle of readers, the grat?
ifying article of The Nation on the- Reform
movement, printed in TTTE NEWS of this
morning. The same unregenerate paper
will, please also, state that "the lamp still
'.holds out to burn," and that tho Reformers
assemble in Mass Meeting at the ll ?berman
WE hope that the suggestion of the ledger,
that Lancaster elect delegates to the Col?
umbia Convention on sales-day in June, will
meet with the concurrence of the county.
Charleston elects her delegates at the Hiber?
nian Hall at 8 o'clock to-night.

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
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 notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There is hardly a eity or town of any note in the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally Increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic woiij}.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have sim further improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. Ia
short, we think lt the best that, is made, at least,
this is the decision of the best judges In the conn
try. We don't pretend to compete in pr?ce with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
