Thc Glorious Work Begau :
The Maus Meeting of the friends of Re?
trenchment and Reform, held at the Hiber
nian Hall last night, was one of the largest
thaiCliarl?ston has ever known. Not only
was the spacious hall crammed with earnest
men eager to join in the good work, but the
concourse filled the stairways aud corridors,
and re8jph<>d out to the very sidewalk. As
was expected, a clique of the partisans of Scott
attempted to create a disturbance, but they
were at once put down by the stentorian
Iung3 of tho supporters of the Reform move?
ment Thus was it shown that the Scott
coterie desired to gag that very Free Speech
of which they proclaim themselves the
champions; thus did they show that they
fear the truth, and dare not allow the broad
sunlight of Reform to pour in upon them and
upon their actions. It was of a piece with
their usual practices, to declare, as they did,
when the Grand Mass Meeting had adjourn?
ed, that "the Charleston Reformers should
never holli a meeting in peace again. We
shall see. The solid phalanx of honest citi?
zens will not shirk the issue.
The business of the meeting was purely
formal. Brief and stirring speeches were
made by white men and by colored men. A
delegation of good men and true wa3 ap?
pointed tc represent the County in the State
Convention, which meets in Columbia in
June. All the State was invited to join with
Charleston in sending delegates to the June
Convention, so that the policy then adopted
may be carried out with harmony aud with
energy by all good citizens. This wa3 the
whole work, and it was enough. It was not
within the province of the meeting to au
uounce names or declare platforms. That
must be done by the wholo State in Conven?
tion assembled. Charleston has spoken
witli trumpet tongue, and now awaits the
action of Richland and Anderson, of Barn?
well and Newberry, of Kershaw and Laurens,
of Union and Horry-of every county which. |
has not yet chosen the men who shall repre?
sent it in :;he Great Convention of the Peo?
ple which will assemble next month.
Tlie wo rk is begun, and well begun. Let
the rest of the State respond to tho voice of |
Charleston, and our great foe, General Apa?
thy, will be conquered, and South Carolina
will enter fairly and squarely upon the plain
path, the broad path, the only 6afe path-the
path of Retrenchment and Reform. Then may
all our people meet and join battle with Dis?
honesty aud Corruption. And when Victory
perches o a our banners, none will forget that
the tocsin of alarm wa3 sounded in this good
old city on au eventful Monday night.
Friends of Retrenchment and Reform, a
thousand times Well done !
Judge Carpenter on thc Scott Ring.
Judge Carpenter, in a card correcting cer?
tain misstatements in regard to him, made
in a Radical sheet, says, very plainly:
"Though u Republican, I lia ve very decided
"views in reference to the want of fitness
"and integrity of certain men who have
"sought und obtained political preferment
"from tho Republican party, and in private
"life, among personal friends of all shades of j
political opinion, I have not hesitated to
"give those views expression."
Judge Carpenter is a sagacious and out?
A Northern Vfcir of thc Late Immigra?
It is pleasant lo know that a Radical jour?
nal of high standing like The Nation, which
has at one/) the quickness to observe, and
the houejity to avow, that thc political condi
tion of South Carolina is "a disgrace to
"civilization," regards the non-political news
from our State as "a great deal better than
"most persons in the North have been hop
"ing for," and as "absolutely good." Aliud
ing to the results of the recent Immigration
Convention in this city, The Nation says
"It is surprising, lor example, to learn that
one small association working in Newberry
District, a fine coantry with a beautiful cli?
mate and lying in the middle region, between
the sand and the hills, alone has Introduced
almost 500 European Immigrants-Swedes wo
take them to be, for the gentleman who gave
the account ot thom went on to say, that 'if you
give a Swedish laborer a peck of meal and three
pounds o? bacon a week you may expect bim
to tabernacle with you only for a night:' and
ho ndded somethiag to the efl'eot that thc
Swede Isa free man, who conies to this coun?
try to better lils condition, aud not to be a
serf, and who must be treated accordingly.
These remarks mude in a convention
which sal. for several days ia Charleston, and
included delegates from Georgia as well as
from all parts of South Carolina, Looking
over the report of thc proceedings, we noted
an entire absence of tho spirit but recently
pervading the South Carolinian miud-the
spirit which demands, not immigrants who de?
sire to better themselves, but a servile peasan?
try. It appears as if thera were now a
genuine wish to foster the sort of im?
migration from abroad and from the
North and East which has built up the
States of thc West and made them thc wonder
of the world; and an elaborate plan to accom?
plish the desired result was submitted to the
convention, and, after intelligent debate,
adopted. The South was always ready enough
to hold conventions, agricultural and other,
and it is bard, when we read thc Charleston
r?solutions, not to think of the gentlemen who
used regularly to meet and resolve that Nor
folk, Virginia, waa designed by God to be the
greatest seaport on this continent; bnt still, the
resolutions before us hare a very business?
like and hopeful look."'
A Notable Gathering.
The Evaugelical Alliance, under whose
auspices it is proposed to hold in New York
City, during the coming-fall, a sort of Pro?
testant (Ecumenical Council, in rivalry of^lf
not in opposition to, that of the Vatican, is
a voluntary organization, embracing mem?
bers of various Protestant religious denomi?
nations. They come together ostensibly to
effect certain objects held in common by all,
at the foundation of which lies the promo?
tion of what the Alliance assumes to be evan?
gelical religion, in contradistinction to Ro?
man Catholicism, acknowledged irreligion,
atlieism and infidelity. But in defining
what constitutes evangelical religion, the
Alliance-may treuch on dangerous ground,
and weaken its bond of union.
The Alliance is based on what is supposed
to be the consensus of the various confes?
sions of faith adopted by different Protestant
denominations mutually recognizing each
other ns evangelical. This summary was
originally adopted in London in 1846. Il
embraces the following cardinal principles:
I*The divine inspiration, authority and suf
ficiency of the Holy Scriptures.
II. Tho right and duty of private judgment
in the interpretation of Hie Holy Scriptures.
III. Tlie unity of the Godhead, and the Trio
ity of the Persons therein.
IV. The utter depravity of human nature it
consequence of the fall.
V. The incarnation of the Son of God, HI;
work of atonement for sinners of mankind
and His mediatorial intercession and reign.
VI. The justification of thc sinner by faltl
VII. Tlie work of the Holy Spirit in the con
version and sanctification of the sinner.
VIII. The immortality of the soul, the resur
j'cction ot' the body, the judgment ot the work
by our Lord Jesus Christ, with the cterna
blessedness of the righteous, and the eterna
punishment of the wicked.
IX. The divine institution of the Christine
ministry, and the obligation and perpetuity
of tL* ordinance of Baptism and the Lord'f
The Alliance, however, in adopting this
summary, as if foreseeing threatened danger,
is careful to protest that it does not accept
or adopt it as a creed or confession, bul
merely as an indication of the class of per
sons whom it is desirable to embrace within
? The Alliance bas encountered opposition,
even among Protestant denominations, tc
?ts efforts to assemble its grand (Ecumenical
Council. The summary of faith or basis ol
union at one blow cuts oil the large and influ?
ential denominations of Christians, called Uni?
tarians and Universalists, and is not espe?
cially acceptable to the different schools ol
Lutherans. Theologians of the Bcecbet
school, who have been charged with tenden?
cies averse to Trinitarianism-or at leasl
with undue sympathy with Unitarianism -
will hardly take kindly to the basis. Ritual?
istic or High Church Episcopalians, who in?
variably stand aloof from all unions, may bc
expected to have nothing to do with this Al?
liance or its General Conference. But there
ia another element, particularly in the Church,
of England, which at present is repelled bj
the rigidity of thc Alliance platform. This
is that influential body represented by Dean
Alford, of Canterbury, who withholds his ac?
ceptance of an invitation to participate ir
tlie conference until the extreme Calvinism
of the basis is modified or satisfactorily ex?
tost ano -fanni).
