Property on the north side of Fayette street,

mances. Tbe-lot has a front eighty-three feet
and a depth of one hundred, and fifty-five. The
location ls accessible from all portions of the
city by the city passenger cars, and it has long
- been thought a desirable point for a place ot

-As Brigham Young grows older, with more
wives and more children, and the latter reach?

nent matter with thea, the persistency with
which ho denounces fte fashions of the Gen?
tile world demonstrates the fact that he feels
one of the burdens which must Inevitably come
with such a lar ?o family. In his last sermon
before the conference his Instructions to the
Saints were very decided in tone. He classed
the entire range of fashions as devices of the
.wicked, bonnets, dresses, boots and parasols,
ail to be condemned by tho.se of the true
faith; and when he. asked the ladies to
signify their determination to make their
own clotbes) and not to make them in
the fashion, the Tabernacle was white with
upraised hands. If Brigham Young can array
thesenttre female population of his dominion
in opposition to the fashions as they receive
them from the East, he will accomplish a
greater feat than he did in planting the barren
soil of Utah and building up a colony there?
for his opposition is not to fashions as they
exist at present, but to fashions at all; and in
attacking the right of woman to change the1
size of her bonnet or the length of her skirt,
he Impeaches one of ber most inalienable
-It is painful to notice that at lengUt Mr.
Greeley has become a consenting party^fo an
outrage on a colored citizen and a voter. Io
giving an account of the election in New York
City, the Tribuue chuckles over the "iyax
eyed sharpness'' with which colored Demo?
crats were watched at the polls, and details j
Tvith especial unction how one negro, who
voted the Democratic licker., was "punched
in the head for his stupidity." Now punching
In the head is sometimes considered assault
and battery in New York, and if administered
to any other* than a Democratic negro in a
Southern State, would be ample cause for mil?
itary occupaUon, and perhaps a scathing edi?
torial la the Tribune. Why the fact that a col?
ored man votes the Democratic ticket should
deprive him of all bis civil rights regarding
bead-punching ts not clear, although the levity
of Mr. Greeley on the subject certainly shows
that it ta morally the correct thing. To quote
on similar occasions, this is evidently not an
error of the heart, but of the head. Mr. Gree?
ley's heart is with the negro; he has often said
so, and we believe him. But his head is else?
where, and it was a head that was punched.
-Some people thought that nothing more
was necessary to insure a short cut to the East
Indies than to open the Suez Canal. It was
pointed out at the time that there were other
things to be considered-the cost of the tolls,
and above all thc almost insuperable difficul?
ties connected with the navigation of the Red
Sea. Thc commentary on these warnings has j
soon returned. Several vessels which availed
themselves of the "short cut" have indeed ar?
rived at Calcutta, but lu a lamentable
plight. A Sunderland steamer reached port
with every stoker dead. Several other
vessels have lost a large proportion of their
hands. On the "P. and 0." steamers, natives
only are employed as stokers-and even they
often succumb to the intolerable heat. They
are sometimes hauled up on deck perfectly in?
sensible, or jump overboard in a flt of mad?
ness. There ls not a breath of air at such
times In this fearful sea; rain has perhaps not,
fallen for several years; and even the young
and the vigorous find all the vital powers tried
to the severest limit. When vessels are sent
on the journey without any preparation for it
whatever, there is only one thing to be antici?
pated-great mortality among the crew, if not
total loss of the vessel among the reefs.
Action ! Action ! Action !
Two general plans of action may be ex?
pected to be submitted to the State Reform
Convention, which assembles in Columbia
next month. The essential point of one plan
is, to make no Opposition nominations for
Governor and Lieu ten ant-Go ver nor; the
main principle of the other plan is, the
prompt nomination of able and respectable
men who will oppose, on the stump -and in
council, the candidates of the Scott party.
Neither plan necessarily interferes with the
wi3e policy of avoiding, wherever practica?
ble, a contest for the Legislature and for
county offices. This, then, is the whole
question: Shall there, or shall there not,
be any opposition to Scott and his associ?
ate, as candidates for Governor and Lieu
tenant-Governor of South Carolina ?
The advocates of "a masterly inactivity"
in regard to Governor and Lieutenant-Gov
ernor argue that it is impossible to defeat
Scott, that it is useless to make a losing
fight, and that an active opposition, on the
State ticket, to the Scott clique, will consoli?
date its adherents and make it impossible to
arrange any compromise for members of the
Legislature and county offices. These ar?
guments, we confess, have no weight with
us. Admitting that Scott will be the nomi?
nee of the Radical party, and that he will
use with his accustomed unscrupulousness
the extraordinary powers which he does
possess, we are not ready to concede that he
cannot be overcome. When he is made to
stand before the people in his true colors as
the implacable foe of every decent man, his
strength will melt away, and those nearest
him in official station will not dare to give
him their support. But no milk-and-water op?
position will defeat Scott. Tbe fight, to be
successful, must be hard and sharp, and we
believe that the June Convention can, if it
will, find a man, who, being heartily sup?
ported by the white people of the State, will
beat Scott by ten thousand majority. The
day can be ours, but waiting and whining
will not give us the victory.
Nor can we admit that it is uselc&s to
make a losing fight. To allow Scott to
strut unopposed over the course, is to aban?
don the principle of assaulting iniquity and
wrong wherever we may find them. This
?ras the spirit which animated our people a
few years ago. Then; if our quarrel were
just, the people went into the fray, resolved
that if they could not command success they
would at least deserve it. And this should
be our 4haxim flow. The Father of Lies
himself, as old legends tell, .was once out?
witted, but because this was done shall our
people hope to make a profitable bargain
with Robert K. Scott ? We are fallen low, in-,
deed, if we are to meet lie with lie, trick
with trick, wrong with wrong. Better is it
a thousand times to make a bold and man?
ly fight in the cause of honesty and truth !
And though our candidates were defeated,
we would join issue with Rascality and Cor?
ruption again and again, until at last vic?
tors'smiled upot mr banners: for it must
be borne in mic'. Jiat Immigration, and Di?
rect Trade, and the encouragement of Man?
ufactures, we cannot have unless we REKORM
the government of thejState.
We have no fear that an opposition to the
election of Scott will have any effect in con?
solidating and solidifying his party. If we
withdraw all opposition, and allow the Ring
to say in the whole State, atid in every coun?
ty, who shall be elected, there may be a
want of solidity, and here and there two
Radicals may. oppose each other. But while
there is any opposition, in any county, there
will be no disintegration of the part}'. That
is to say, the leaders of that party will stand
by each other, under all circumstances, if
there is any prospect of their own downfall.
The point that the opposition should make
is to drive into the ranks of thc enemy, and
appeal not to the gaudy chieftains, but to
the rank and file of the voting army. All
their interests are on the side of good gov?
ernment, if the truth be brought home to
them. Of this they can be convinced. And
if they aro protected by the whites from the
bullying and bellowing of their party over?
seers, there will be no lack of recruits in the
cause of Reform.
Act?on ! Action ! Action ! is what must
save the State. Action ! against Scott.
Action ! against every man who has made
.himself a bargainer with Dishonesty and
Fraud. Let thc June Convention put its
candidates in the field, and, with proper
effort, the day is our own. Without or?
ganization, and without concert of action,
we can accomplish nothing. And we can
have no effective organization, no complete
unity of action, if we allow Scott to be re?
elected without even a show of light.
Who Comes Next !
There was a squirming and wiggling
among the Charleston Radicals yesterday.
That disagreeable Senator Cain insists upon
telling the truth, and his quondam asso?
ciates, irritated by this outrageous couduct,
say that he, and the Missionary Record,
have taken their place in the Citizens' Re?
form party. This is pleasant newe. The
only qualification for admission to the ranks
of the Reform party is just what the revilers
of Senator Cain have not got, and that is
Moving On !
Charleston and Barnwell have already ap?
pointed their delegates to the Reform Con?
vention, which assembles in'Columbia on
June 15, next, and the following counties
have announced that they will hold meetings
for the appointment of delegates on the
days specified :
1. Union. May 25
2. Orangeburg. .June 6
3. Marion.May 25
4. Williamsburg.June 6
5. Laurens_?.June G
7. Marlboro'.June 6
8. Spartanburg.June ff'
9. Newberry.June 6
10. Chester.June 6
Sales-day in June beiug apparently the
most generally convenient time for holding
county meetings, we suggest that the re?
maining counties give notice at once that
they will appoint their delegates on that
The number of delegates appointed in
Charleston was equal to double the repre?
sentation of the county in both branches of |
the General Assembly. In order that the
Convention may be both large, and influen?
tial, our sister counties are invited to ap?
point delegates on the same basis.
The Rnin of Republicanism.
The New York Sun, a Radical paper, dis?
cusses the causes of the Waterloo defeat of
the Republican party of New. York, in the
State elections which took pince last week.
It admits that the New York Republicans
are completly demoralized, and that if the
party cannot be radically reor-janizcd, it
might as well be disbanded. This forlorn
condition is due, according to the Sun, to
the utter failure of the nationa. administra?
tion to redeem the pledges wherewith it ob?
tained power, and in part to the incapacity
and corruption of its local leaders.
It says that from the very start General
Grant's administration was a'heavy load
upon the party in New York, and th? b?rden
has been growing more intolerable with
every month that has elapsed since he took
the oath of office. He bas shown an utter
lack of statesmanship in dealing with the
great questions which have come before him ;
while his want of all tact in the choice of
his confidants, and in the distribution of his
patronage in the State of New.-York, proves
that he is incapable of rising to tho level of
a politician even of ordinary importance.
The sooner the Republican party give3 it to
be understood that under no possible cir?
cumstances can Grant be.its candidate for
re-election, the better it will be for that
party. Not its future triumph merely, but
even its healthy existence, demands that the
party reach and publicly announce this deter?
mination without delay.
What Grant has done in New York, Scott
is doiag in South Carolina. Tiie be3t thing
for the South Carolina Radicals is to pitch
?jcott overboard and coalesce with thc Re?
form Party. _
The Fall Elections.
Tlie fall elections this year are to decide
not only the character of the next House of
Representatives, but also, to a cercain ex?
tent, that of the Senate. Twenty senators
will be elected by the next State Legisla?
tures. The senators whose terms expire on
tho lt li nf March next ore Murrill, of Main??;
Cragiu, of New Hampshire; Wilson, uf Mas?
sachusetts; Anthony, of Rhode Island; Cat
tell, of New Jersey; Wilie}', of We3t Virginia;
Johnson, of Virginia; Abbott, of North Caro?
lina; Robertson, of South Carolina; Fowler,
of Tennessee ; Grimes, of Iowa ; Howard, of
Michigan: Thayer, of Nebraska; Ross, of
Kansas; Yates, of Illinois'; McDonald, of Ar?
kansas; Revels, of Mississippi; Williams, of.
Oregon; Harris, o? Louisiana; Warner, of
Alabama ; Saulsbury, of Delaware; McCree
ry, ofKeutucky, -nd Norton, of Minnesota.
The outgoing senators are all Republicans,
except Saulsbury, McCreery and Norton.
The seat of Mr. Fowler has already been filled
by a. Democrat, aud that of Mr. Grimes by a
Republican. The Democrats will probably
loose one senator ia Minnesota, and gain in
New Jersey, Oregon, and perhaps one or
two Southern States. In niauy of the States
the contest will bc spirited, for personal as
well u3 for political reasous.
