-The first ot two free baths In New York

the bath to such a depth as will best accommo?
date the bathers. The bath is ninety feet
long by sixty leet wide on the outside, and
forty feet by ninety In thc Inside. The sides
are ol solid planking down to the water's
edge, and below that they aro formed
Of stout slats to allow freo Ingress

-Greeley, who^ has been sojourning lor a
short time in the Bahamas, writes a column of
his "Ideas" to the Tribune upon matters and
filings in that health-giving section of the
West Indies. ^Viter elucidating and succinct?
ly describing the geographical and agricultu?
ral teatures of the Bulmmas, he touches upon
the "idoi" which for years has been the prie
cipal "god of his Idolatry"-the negro. Alter
.thirty years of freedom, he tells us, they
evince all the good and bad Qualities o? their
ancestry. They are docile, kind, civil, patient
and humane; are not generally provident,
energetic nor aspiring: are content with little,
which, in some manner or other, they gene?
rally secure; are not inclined to work, and very
few ol them acquire wealth. Filty cents
per day in town ami twenty-five in the coun?
try are the usual w ages paid them, and there
are always more wanting work than can
get it even at these rates. The philosopher is
forced to admit from what he has seen that
the plantations which were productive and
flourishing under siavery are wholly deserted
and useless under freedom. In summing up
his "impressions," he tells-what little he
knows of farming in that section, and "hazards
an opinion" that pineapples, bananas and
other tropical fruits may be grown on the isle
with profit, by proper cultivation. He thinks
now is the "accepted time" to commence
operations in that line, lor, lrom their three
years' debaucli ol blockade-running, the Ba?
hamas have nearly recovered; the gold that
overflowed her streets and jingled in ever;
pocket has vanished like a beggar's dream of
splendor. All that is needed to make that
country truly the "land of milk and honey" is
a few industrial chiefs and organizers. Sup?
posing you emigrate, Horace.
A New Nostrum from an Old quack.
There is in Charleston a truly worthy man
who knows everything, and who, out of the
mine of his golden experience, can extract a
certain cure for all the ills to which the flesh,
or the body politic, is heir. A cunning plan
which this good soul devised was tried two
years ago, and was a ludicrous fiasco. But
why should we abuse the inventor ? Wheu
a tight-rope dancer falls from the giddy
height and breaks his foolish neck, the at?
traction of gravity is not to blame-a rotten
rope, or slack stay, is the cause of the un?
pleasant contretemps. And when a "Hying
"man" flutters to mother earth instead of
soaring in the empyreal sphere, the stupidity
of the mechanician who constructed pinions
and tail, sails and rudder, does the whole
unhappy business. The quack doctor is
never in the wrong. When the Seal-oleum
or bread pill fails to heal the obstinate sore,
or renew the shattered frame, the guilty
cause is the jealousy of a hated professional
rival, or a disgusting lack of faitli on the
part of the puling patient. And it was ever
tims. Why then should a black mark be
set against the lugubrious logician who in?
vented the manly form of the baby plan of
"cutting off the nose to spite the face."
The relaxing effect of the drenching process
caused the bottom of our political system to
drop out two years ago, or more. But there
will be better luck next time, or the next, or
at the Greek Kalends. And, in the mean?
while, a fair trial might be giveu to any new
idea, which may come from the old source;
thc more especially as the "worthy man" of
whom we write has a large family connec?
Without more ado we como to the point.
The new cure-all is this :
1. Let the Reform Convention make no
nomination, but adjourn subjecj to the call
of its Executive Committee.
2. Let the Stale lie on its oars until the Ring
pnt up their man-that is, Scott.
3. Let an independent Republican candidate
for Governor come forward oj his own mo?
4. Let him be one who can' command, in
himself, at least 15,000 Republican votes.
6. Let the Reform Convention reassemble
and pledge the party to the support of the In?
6. Let Scott be defeated.
7. Let the Independent candidate win.
This plan is altogether lovely. With a Do
Nothing Alpha and a Victorious Omega, it is
of little moment what happens in between.
The plan is as complete of its kind as the
wonderful marriage service which is said to
begin with "Dearly Beloved" and end with
"amazement." But politics just now is a
cash business, and the public will uot take
political goods on credit. The cake has
turned out to be dougli several times al?
ready, and before they regaril with a favora?
ble eye either cake or candy, tho public family
demand a proof of the skill of the master
confectioner. Of course one bungling job
is no sure prognostication that every piece of
work will be muddled out of all reason, but
the most cunning workman can do nothing
with bad materials, and even a Parisian
artist iu pies cannot make jam tarts of saw?
1. The Reform Convention must do noth?
This may be compassed, although we hope
?ot. There will certainly be enough dele?
gates in favor of doing something to make u
sharp struggle for a nomination, tolerably
sure. And if inactivity prevails, who can
guarantee that a clique of somebodies, who
io not countenance the Convention aud de?
cline to be bound by its action, will wyt make
such a nomination, on their own hook, a3
will drag down in its fall all Hie tribe of Do
2. .<4 Republican must come forward, of
hts own motion, as an Independent "tandi
Why should he? Why should any man]
pat himself in a position to have all the
blame and uone of the praise ? If he fails
it is his own fault. If he wius-the Reform
party did it. There ?3 not a mun in the
State, worth having, who would ruu up ou
3. The Independent candidate must be
able to command 15,000 Republican votes.
Candidates of this kiud are not as plenti?
ful as blackberries. We do uot know any
mun, who-once out of the Ring-can count
on tliis support. The strength of au honest
caudidate would bc scraped down mid pared
off by the RiDg. And a dishonest candidate
could make most by selling out his 15,000
vote3 to the Scottites. Moreover, is there
any Republican in South Carolina whose iu
dhidual interest in public purity is greater
enan the collective interest of thc whole
people ? We think not. A caudidate can j
be had whose negative strength is great,
and who will not alienate, by his candida?
ture, either white or black voters; a can?
didate who will work hard, and do his own
share of the fighting. Such a man, backed
up by Hie white voters, can be elected Gov?
ernor of South Carolina, in spite uf Scott
and all his angels. But there is no man iu
tho State who can win the day unless lie
have the cordial support of llie wiiite voters,
and unless he be, ut the same time, unob?
jectionable lo the blacks.
6. T'a Reform Convention shall support
the Independent candidate.
Thai candidate will not be found. I
7. Let Scott be defeated.
That depends upon the vigor of the Re?
form candidate, the earnestness of the peo?
ple, and an early opening of the campaign.
7. Let the Independent candidate win.
To let him win is only another way of say?
ing, "We wish he may get it." We must
helj) him to win, we must work for him to
win, if victory is to he fa's and ours.
Now, is it not evident that the plan pro?
posed by the gentleman from Charleston,
(with an extensive family connection,) has
not a single element essential to success ?
If may be adopted. But, if so, we may as
well gird our loins for another two years of
robbery and wrong, and then-the Lord help
The Land Ring.
The Columbia Guardian has received a
dispatch from C. P. Leslie, late land com?
missioner, dated at Pheonix, New York, in
which he denies the statement made in the
communication of "Republican," of June 1,
as to the part charged upon him in the sale
of the Schley lands to the Land Commission.
The Guardian presumes that he had not
read the second article of "Republican,"
which places the blame of the transaction
upon other shoulders, where it seems to rest
For our part, we heartily wish that Sena?
tor Leslie would make a clean breast of it.
We are inclined to think that he is more
sinned against than sinning, but this long
silence looks awfully ugly.
Reform in Florida.
We are glad to see that the people of
Florida, a State which is in almost as bad
case, politically, as our own, are up and do?
ing in the cause of Reform. A full and effi?
cient organization has been begun in most
of the counties, embraciug "all the people
"who desire equal and just laws faithfully
"and impartially enforced, and who favor
"an honest and economical administration
"of the State Government," and it is confl
"dently hoped that in the next election the
Peninsular State may bo wrested from the
grasp of the gang of plundering carpet-bag?
gers who now control her destinies.
