-Official-tables, taken from the books of the

_ grants than have reached here from Germany
.alone during the same period. For example,
there arrived in the last twenty-three years
from Ireland, 1,644,009; from Germauy, 1,(?3?>,
254. More than this, during the first five
months of the present year the emigration
~ from Germany has amounted to 25,500, against
0 -24,46; from Ireland. To these figures are to
be added those representing the Swedish,' Dan?
ish,. Norwegian, French, English, Scottish and
Welsh, not to mention the Chinese. So that
zz the Irish emulation to this country evidently
does not overbalance that of all others com?
bined, as some have supposed.
-Quebec was visited early on Tuesday morn?
ing, as waa briefly announced by telegraph,
.withone of the most disastrous conflagrations
eyer known in the history of that city. The
Area over which the fire swept was covered
with wooden dwellings and the flames spread
with such fierceness as to drive hundreds of
people from their houses to places of safety,
The sight In some cases was most appalling
Women, with barely a stitch of clothing, were
met at every turn, most of them carrying their
.children, and rushing about in a wild
And Insane-like manner. As the wind
rose the flames gathered strength and inten?
sity, leaping with fearf ul violence from one
building to another, sweeping before them
everything or a combustible nature. The
wind, blowing strong from the east, directed
the tendency of the flames towards King and
-Queen streets, through which they swept with
terrible force, enveloping at one time over fifty
buildings. These streets in some places ex?
hibited a most awful appearance, a perfect
whirlwind of fire being observable in every
-direction. Fortunately, at 4 o'clock A. M., rain
began to fall, which soon checked the flames,
.and this, with the almost superhuman efforts
of the firemen, stayed the further progress of
the fire-fiend. It is estimated, however, that
five hundred buildings were destroyed. Two
?hipe were also burned to the water's edge,
?nd several persons were injured by falling
-A New York letter of Thursday says : "A
?ery curious service took place to-day at
Trinity Church. This is Ascension Day, when
All the parish choirs unite at Trinity. Rev. Mr.
Dix preached a brief extemporaneous sermon,
I and the communion was administered; but the
great feature of the service, and one which
will create a great deal o? talk, was the intro?
duction Into the organ loft of a full orchestra
of twenty-eight performers. Here, under the
old gothic arches of Trinity, the fiddlers were
seen .scraping away, and the players on wind
instruments distended their cheeks as it
they were at the opera or playing for a
beer garden: At first the effect was any?
thing but suggestive of church, but after
the ear became accustomed to the unwonted
sounds, so unfamiliar in a Protestant church,
it was rich and satisfying. The orchestra
was used as a substitute for the organ,
and not in conjunction with it. Thc Nicene
Creed and an elaborate anthem were sung by
the choir with this full orchestral accompani?
ment. Th<i singers at Trinity arc men and
boys, and though they were in the chancel and
the orcheBlxa in the organ loft, all kepi well
together. The congregation were evidently
very much surprised at tbis startling innova?
tion, and Eome of the more conservative at?
tendants of Trinity were not a little shocked.
Musically speaking, however, the experiment
was a decided success. In certain portions of
the service the organ was used and the orches?
tra was silent. In the Roman Catholic church?
es In this city the orchestra is often used in
high festivals, but this is the first instance ol
its introduction into a Protestant church. The
music on this occasion was selected chiefly
from the English composer, Barnby, and the
French composer. Gounod.
nie Political Parson.
The political parson has been hitherto un?
known at; the South. Here the ministry,
while cherishing a lively sympathy witb the
State, ba.ve scrupulously held themselves
aloof frorn the intrigues or even the meas?
ures of part}'. They have encouraged the
public defenders; they have invoked the
blessing of Heaven upon the cause of their
country; they have given their offerings to
her need?, and their ministries to her dis?
tresses; they have freely cast their vote3 into
the ballot-box; but they have not aspired to
be party leaders. Feeling that they had a
higher business than the distribution of of?
fice, and a nobler reward than the spoils of
a successful campaign, they have jealously
guarded che spiritual from tho intrusion of
the secular. Thu3, for example, while they
have decided views upon that irrepressible
American question of Free Trade rersi?s
Protection, we do not recall the name of any
reputable Southern minister who has com?
promised his religious influence by a public
declaration upon that or any similar subject.
It i3 to the interest of thc country that
this time-honored precedent shall stand. It
suits the temper and taste of our people. It
corresponds with their sense of propriety.
For sacrilege may be committed upon the
ministerial office as well as upon the church
or the pulpit, where the ambassador of the
Supreme discharges his sublime functions.
Other communities may think differently.
Chicago and Cincinnati, Boston and Brook?
lyn, may demand that each discourse or lec?
ture of a clergyman shall bc spiced with a
curry of politics. New York may crowd ap?
provingly to hear the partisan diatribes of
a caustic Cheever, a bellicose Beecher, or a
"smiling" Smyth. There it may not dam?
age the good repute of a minister to be en?
gaged in acrimonious discussions in the
daily press. There men may laugh, as at a
good joke, when political animosity, awak?
ened by clerical partisanship, turns against
the whole order, as the Whigs did, in the
days of George I-and siug the rhymed
"There's naught chokes a priest but a halter."
But in this region we are conservative and*
prefer the good old way.
In one of Montaigne's essays the old knight
divides eloquence into two kinds-the one
facile and prompt, Buited to the bar; the
other weighty and premeditated, suited to
the pulpit. If the shrewd and genial Gason
is correct, the sensational preacher hus mis?
taken his vocation. He gains notoriety, he
gathers a crowd, he represents the shifting
incidents of the day, and stirs its fugitive
passions, he amuses, he excites; but he does
not instruct the mind, he does not awaken
the cou3cience, he does not subdue the soul.
His discourses are like the oracles written on
the wiud-tossed leaves of the Cunicean Sibyl.
His lectures are like a palimpsest where tile
sacred is* sacrificed to the secular, and the
dream of a visionary obscures a chapter in
the Bible. - He, himself, is like an idle meteor
which hides the stars as it flames across the
sky, but which soon disappears while they
chino on in their ateady, sileut courses. Few
political parsons have ever awakened such
enthusiasm as was given to thc notorious
High-Church politician, Dr. Sacheverell. He
was oue ol the immortuls. The courtiers of
Queeu Anne used to shout over their cups,
" While the Phoenix stands up and the Bow
bells do ring,
Here's a health to Sachev'rell and God bless
the Queen !"
But the poor creature soon sunk into such
contempt that no one would take any notice
of him. The government regarded him a3
too mean to punish even for his sensational
preachments against it. Tho very men who
made a tool of the political parson were the
first to cast him off. So it will always be.
For our part, we recognize the right of
the ministry to use all the privileges of citi?
zenship. They, of course, can write and
speak upon what subjects they please. But
tho high respect claimed by the office is im?
perilled by the partisan who, from the cau?
cus or the hustings, has "lost his way " into
a parsonage or a pulpit. "It will be had,"
said an old English wit, "when God's
" church is marie a sanctuary, only for men
" of desperate estates to take refuge in iL"
And such a mun is the political parson.

The Hon. B. Odell Duncan on the Re?
The ignorance and knavery which, in apt
combination, have made our State gov?
ernment, in .the words of The Nation,
" a disgrace to civilization," are not laid at
the doora of the masse3 of the colored peo?
ple, who, up to this time, have been the ribs
and backbone of South Carolin Republican?
ism. Apathy on the part of tho whites,
and inexperience and imperfect knowledge
on the part of the blacks, enabled a Ring
of cunning politicians to seize upon and
control the offices and thc Legislature of
the State. This Ring it is which is re?
sponsible for the frauds, and extravagances,
which have paralyz -U our energies, and re?
tarded our progress; thia Ring it is which
hascau3ed the State, a3 The Nation declares,
and we know, "to lie almost completely at
" the mercy of the black and white corrup
" tioniStS who have been plundering it for
" some years past." And we have always
believed that, where intelligence and honesty
are united in the same men, an indignant
protest would, sooner or later, be uttered
against the myriad villan?as which oppress
The Nation, the leading Republican jour?
nal of the country, was the first paper out?
side of the State to urge " Democrats aud
"Republicans, especially Republicans, to
" pray with fervor for the rescue of South
" Carolina from her present rulers." This
wa3 followed by similar, though less hearty,
exhortations from other New York Republi?
can papers, and we may confidently say that
the South Carolina Reform movement hus
thia day the firm, if silent, support of every
pure and able member of the State Republi?
No evidence on this point eau bc more
conclusive than the manly declarations of the
Hon. B. Odell Duncan, contained in his letter
from Naples, printed in our issue of yester?
day. Mr. Duncan is one ol the very few
respectable Soulh Carolinians who joined
the Republican party in the early days: of
reconstruction. No one has impeached the
purity of his motives or the integrity of his
character. A3 United States consul at Na?
ples, lie hus coulirmed the high opinion al?
ready entertained of his courtesy and cul?
ture. His Republicanism is above suspicion.
Bul, as an honest mun, deeply interested in
the result of the coming contest in his na?
tive State, he is forced to arraign the Radi?
cal Ring at the bar of public opinion. Now
and then he saw a ray of hope; but, lie says,
"The general character ot our Legisla?
ture and of the legislation in Colnnibia during
the winter has certainly uot been such as to
Inspire me with continence in the wisdom, pa?
triotism or even ordinary honesty of those at
present controlling the Suite Government and
the 1 Radical ' party lu South Carolina. Their
action has been such that / do not see what
reason any class of our people can hace for
Property-holders, he continues, who are
not ollice-holdera inay properly complain of
the heavy expenditures that are made. But,
" Our good Governor, for Instance, and some
of the other State officials, will not complain of
their taxes while they have such a control ol
the Legislature as to be able to make or un?
make the market for 8":ate or railroad bonds
at pleasure, and thus gain many limes over
the amount of their taxes."
This is not all. Mr. Duncan, with justice,
chargea that the Scott Legislature has done
nothing to alleviate thc condition of the la?
boring classes. He says:
'. Our legislators seem to have been too igno?
rant lo know that when thc industry and pros?
perity of a country is disturbed, it is always
tho poorer classes who stifler most. Their ac?
tion has generally been such ns lo prevent a
return to a state of peace and quiet, and to
foment the bitter feelings hitherto existing.
This course may prove beneficial to curtain
corrupt demagogue politicians, who can hope
to remain above thc surface only in times ol
excitement, but it will certainly prove most
calamilous to our poorer classes, whom they
pretend specially to represent."
The whole record is before him, and he
fearlessly says :
" Thc ' Radical ' party in South Carolina has
clearly showu that, with its present organiza?
tion and leaders, lt does not govern for the
?rood of thc people and the general prosperity
Of thc State. Then it should be abandoned, or
very 1 radically' changed.
Mr. Duncan sees at once the evil and the
remedy. Regretting that the State govern?
ment should have fallen into such hands as
they have, he declares that no one, than
himself, "would more heartily unite with
" any honest effort to rescue both our party
" and our State government from the
" clutches of those who now control them."
Such an "honest effort" is the Reform
movement. Mr. Duncan, were he nearer
home, would be convinced already of its
straightforwardness and sincerity. To its
principles, he says, "good Republicans will
" certainly not object," and well may he
avow his opinion that
"If they are bona .fide on the part of our
former am agonists, I can see no good reason
why good Republicans should not unite with
them in order to rescue the government from
the hands of those at present ruling the State
for its ruin. It will not be an abandonment of
tlie principles of our party, but only a union
with our lormer foes, who accept our principles
and Join us to rescue the State trom corrupt
and incapable hands."
The issue of the civil and political equal?
ity of the races no longer divides the citi?
zens of the State. We occupy a ground far
higher than the fields on which the battles
of Party are fought. Ali that is desired is a
good government, without regard to party,
race or color, which good government can
only be obtained by the successful union of
all decent and honest men against thc ras?
calities of the Ring. The struggle will be
long and severe ; but it 13 a cheering omen
of victory that the South Carolina Reformers
go into action carrying with them the hearty
good wishes of papers like The Nation, and
of gentlemen like him from whose letter we
quote to-day. Their moral and material sup?
port, joined to the energetic labors of the
white people of the State, should surely give
us as good an earnest of a happy issue as
any of our people can desire.
MR. A. T. Wallace was sworn in on Sat?
urday a3 member of Congress from the
Fourth South Carolina District. Just pre?
vious to tlie swearing in, Mr. Brooks, of New
York, put this# pertinent question to the
Speaker o? the House :
" If he shall be sworn in will lt be as a mem?
ber elected in South Carolina, or a member
elected by this House ?"
Considering that Mr. Wallace received
9807 vote3, and his opponent, Colonel Simp?
son, 14,098 votes, this was a stumper. But
the Radicals, like the traditional turkey, are
" werry tough."
