after she commenced speaking, was Interrupt?
ed by an inquisitive auditor, anxious lo gain
information os to her paternity. The Princess
defied him, and the audience suppressed him,

-The last Spanish barbarilyln Cuba reaches
us through the medium of a private letter from
Remedios, written by a trustworthy person.
Early in the mouth of Jiay, forty-two inhabi?
tants of that city were dragged from their
houses late at night, under the pretence1 that
they were in some manner identified with the
insurgent cause. The p?er wretches were
dragged from their families, safely bound, and
taken to tue vicinity of the cemetery, and wero
there clubbed to death with the butt end3- of
muskets. No charge, no trial, and, shack&d
as they were, no possible defence -knocked on
the head like oxen in the shambles. Amcog
them was more than one oki man over seven?
ty years of age. Two only managed to escape
this horrible massacre. This deed was couir
mitted by the volunteers in revenge for tile
many defeats they had lately suffered. Portilr
lo, the military commander of the district,,
who had previeusly earned a reputation in
Villa Clara Tor his cruelties to old men, de?
fenceless women and-children, was aware af
the outrages that were being committed, but
by lils inaction passively endorsed the fearful
Tlie "Consolidation" Theory.
Some of tlje staunchest supporters of the
Reform movement evidently believe that the
nomination of candidates for Governor and
Lieutenant-Governor, by the June Conven?
tion, will so solidify and consolidate the
Radical party as to make it extremely diffi?
cult for the Reformers to elect either mem?
bers of the Legislature or county officers.
They argue, therefore, that no nominations
should be made, and that each county should
drive the best bargain that it can, or make
the best fight that it can, upon thc general
principles laid down or advised by the Con?
vention. Of all the ad captandum argu?
ments directed against the nomination of a
general ticket, this is, in our opinion, the
weakest and most puerile.
The "consolidation of the Radical party,"
which fills the minds of the weaker political
vesselsVith uneasiness and alarm, is neither
more nor les3 than an expression of the de?
termination of the corrupt leaders of that
party to stick squarely together. They are
anxious to secure the plunder of the last two
years, and to gratify their craving for more,
and still more, of the money and credit of
tlie people. Hitherto they have led the col?
ored voters whithersoever they pleased, and
they believe that stump speaking, an occa?
sional barbecue, un appeal to the gratitude
of the colored people for favors they have
not had, and, perhaps, a strong dose of
"loyal militia," will enable them once more
to sweep over th? State, like the Sirocco, of
whose consuming breath Senator Cain spoke
so savagely, before he "flung to Hie breeze,"
for re-election, the name of R. K. Scott.
The. simple holding of the Reform Conten?
tion will consolidate the Radical party; for
there are more vacancies to be lilied thau
those on the general ticket, and not oue of
the leaders is willing to give upa tittle of Iiis
We can understand that if there were uo
other Radical office-holders or ollice-seekers
in South Carolina than those who hope to
be elected Governor and Lieutenant-Gover?
nor, it might be highly proper to allow the
elections for those important offices to go by
default. That might disarm the Radicals,
and enable the Reformers to curry, with
ease, all the county elections. But in every
county in the State there are a score of Rad?
ical candidates for every office that is to be
tilled at the fall elections. Only one man
can bc elected to each office, but thc aspir?
ants are numbered by the dozen, and every
authorized candidate will be interested in
"consolidating" his county, not for tlie sake
of Scott or Moses, but to secure Iiis own
election. We ask this simple question: Will
it be any consolation for a Radical office
seeker in Charleston, for instauce, to know
that he is to be dickered out of his place
while thc candidates for Governor and Lieu?
tenant-Governor walk quietly over the course?
The party will unquestionably lie consolidat?
ed, just tis far as the united efforts of all thc
Radical candidates, from Governor down,
can consolidate it, and this consolidation
will take place whether we do, or do not,
nominate our candidates uud give battle
upon the general ticket
And we must not forget that thc Radical
Ring know full well what would be our ob?
ject in confining the contest to the counties.
They know that if we obtain a Reform ma?
jority in the General Assembly we eau hold
the Governor in check, and obtain some?
thing like a decent government. In arguing,
therefore, against a general ticket we say iu
effect to the Radicals: We will generously
give you one point, in order that we may, at
your expense, score two points for ourselves.
But are the Radical leaders so imbecile
that this game may be played with safety ?
We see nothing in their past conduct to make
us think so. They are sharp enough, too
sharp; and we cannot fool them, though, as
political ostriches, we bury our heads in tlie
sand, and, in fancied security, whistle our
songs of victory. The Radicals understand
this dodge. And we are inclined to think
that they liad rather lose the election for
Governor than lose thr- - ! ;ction of a working
majority of the metnbe - uf the General As?
sembly. Tlie Missionary Record lia3 al?
ready sounded thc note of alarm, and wo are
firmly convinced that, if we abandon thc
coutest for Governor and Lieutenant-Gover?
nor, with Hie hope of strengthening our po?
sition in Hie counties, we shall count without
our host, and be miserably and fatally de?
ceived. Whatever we may do, or may not
do, the Radicals will make a streng light in
the counties. The elections there are us im
portant, and as necessary to them as they
can possibly bc to us.
The Radical Ring will strain every nerve
to consolidate their party. And, assuredly,
the light will bo a hard one. Tiierwfore.
mu3t we set organization against organiza?
tion, consolidation against consolidation,
stratagem against stratagem. And we con?
fess that we do not see that we have even a
chance of succeeding unless we set leader
against leader, and give to the Army of Re?
form an able aud competent head. Without
this, we are in dauger of being whipped in
detail-without this we give up the Governor
and Lieutenuiit-Goveruor, and cannot count
upou as many Reformers in the new General
Assembly as Hiere were Demociats in Hie
highly corrupt aud eminently disgraceful
legislative body elected two years ago.
The Re-election of IVhJttomore,
The additional returns printed la another
coluni?f, taken in connection with.thoso al?
ready published, make it certain that B. F.
Whitleraore is re-elected from the First Con?
gressional District by about 6000 majority.
As compared with the vote in 1S08, when
Mr. Whittemore (Rad.) ran against Mr, Cov?
ington (Dem.) the vote and result are aa fol?
Marlboro'.! 1.135 1,00-1 977 2C&- .

Clarendon-. 1,448 709, 811 43
Total. 17.467 11.0181 9,504! 1.889
A cursory examination of the foregoing
table sliows that not more than one-half of
the Radical vote, nor more than one-fifth of
the Anti-Radical strength, wa3 actually
polled. Laucaster, which polled 016 for
Covington, gave only ICO to Dunn. Marl?
boro', which gave Covington 1004 votes,
gives Dunn only 22S. Williamsburg, in like
manner, has dwindled down from 7S8 lr> 25?
Korry from 1088 to 402, and Clarendon frpm
7G9 to 43. Nor have the missing votes gone
to swell the majority of Whittemore. In
Darlington alone did he secure nearly as
many votes as in 1S68. Marlboro', which
gave him 1133 two years ago, now gives
him 977 ; Georgetown fulls from 2071 lo 1088;
Williamsburg from 1GS3 to .913; Sumter from
3106 to 2030; Kershaw from 1481 to GOO:
Lancaster from 800 to 075; Ilorry from 39G
lo 1SG, and Clarendon from 144S to 611.
The apathy of the colored voters is, we be?
lieve, due to two causes-many of Hiern
were disgusted with Whittemore, and felt Hie
disgrace he had brought upon them. This
class wai numerous enough to have elect?
ed Mr. Dunn. But Mr. Dunn made the can?
vass unaided anti alone. The colored people
knew him neither by name nor reputation.
They, therefore, compromised the matter by
staying away from the polls. The failure of
the white voters to support Mr. Dunn is, in
all probability, mainly due to the feeling
that it i3 better to let Whittemore go back
to Congress with all ids sins on Iiis head.
This lingering remnant of the old plan of
giving the rogue all the rope he needs, in
the hope Hitit he will one day reeve himself a
halter, has caused the First District to lose a
fair opportunity of obtaining au honest and
intelligent representative. This feeling can
be overcome, bat only by the stir, active ex?
citement and healthy energy of a general
State canvass. Then thc people of the First
District will turn out and do their part
Aud the colored votera, who have shown
that tliey will not vote for this poor creature
Whiitcinore, will then deposit their ballots
for candidates whom they can respect Olid
We presume that Whittemore will be ad?
mitted to his seat. The United States He use
of Representatives ha3 declared, by formal
resolution, Hint he is unworthy lo represent
the people. But his constituents have re?
elected him, and Congross, in ali probability,
will have nothing mareto say. lt is admit?
ted on all sides that Whittemore is an unfit
compauion for decent and upright men; but
Congress, except spasmodically, takes no
notice of tho moral status of its members,
and regards party fealty aa something more
important, in politics, than the perfection of
The Tribune, and ono or two other Re?
publican papers, may conjure Congress to
reject ilr. Whit temora, but his constituenls,
save the mark, (!) have condoned his crime,
and make him what Mr. Silas Wegg would
call "the minion of fortune and the worm of
