tle savages" dropped In the pleasant rose
shaded house of Admiral Dahlgren, where they
. were received with graceful courtesy by the
],admiral's wife. She served them with coffee
and cake, with a gravo ceremoniousness that
- matched their own lofty and impassive manner.
The visitors were shown all through the work?
shops and foundry; seemed interested and
amused, but seldom betrayed anything like
wonder or surprise. The first, the last, the
only expression of pure astonishment depicted
. on Bed Cloud's face, was when, In the foundry,
he saw the red-hot liquid Iron ladled out into
the moulds, for shells and bails. The immense
trip-hammer, pounding away at an engine
shaft, seemed to afford hun a gentle degree of
excitement, and he expressed a mild satisfac?
tion in the monitor. He inspected with a ma?
jestic cariosity che revolving of the turret, and
followed the ricocheting of the ball ulong the
Potomac with a scries of gracious grunts. '
When about to leave, the visitors happened to
pass the three lovely young children of Admi?
ral aud Mrs. Dahlgren, and each man and
woman stopped and stooped to shake hands
with the dainty little creatures, who looked at
them timidly, but not dlstrustingly.
-The^ seems to be trouble brewing in the
order of St. Crispin, the most powerful and
?.progressive" labor organizations we have so
lar had in tills country.' It appears that there
is a strike among the shoemakers of this or?
der in North Brookfield, Moss., because an
employer would not discharge a member of
the league who had not paid his lodge dues.
The statement is made by the Boston Adver?
tiser that certam American mechanics, mem?
bers of the Crispin order, desired to withdraw
from >t, having discovered the possibilities of |
danger which outweigh thc good that might bc
lu such association. Thejforeign-born majori?
ty Insisted that they is no discharge from the
oaths once taken, except by death or an aban?
donment ol the trade. The discontented one?
were ready to pay their arrearges on condition
of being permitted to cut loose from thc order,
but this being refused, they had no resort but
to stay away from the meetings and let their
dues accumulate under protest. It is in this
state of affairs that Hie leaders of the lodge
have ordered the manufacturers to do their
bidding and discharge the seceders, and upon
being met with a refusal, tho workmen in one
department have lett their benches.
-Officers ot workingraen's organizations ore
calling the attention of Congressmen to the

lation to prevent them. A bill Is now before
the Senate Judiciary Committee with the title,
"A bill to prohibit contracts for servile labor.1
It provides that every contract for labor, any
part of the consideration of which shall be the
money for transportation advanced or secured
for any alien from anj foreign country, which
provides for a longer period of service than
six months, shall be declared to be a contract
for servile labor, Sad contrary to pubjie- policy.
Any person who shall contract for such for a

The Convention To-Day.
Never since the time when Sumter fell and
the Southern heart was bealing high with
confidence and hope, has any represent alive
body assembled in South Carolina, which had
a more solemn mission than is entrusted to
the State Beform Convention which meets at
the capital to-day. Groaning under the bur?
den of excessive taxation and unequal laws,
disheartened and discomfited by their una?
vailing contest with ignorance and vice,
weary of waiting for the relief that never
comes, and sick at heart with hope long de?
ferred-the people of the State have at last
aroused themselves from their lethargy, have
at last shown their willingness to make a
desperate struggle tor Justice, Right and
And they began in the right way. The
first step was boldly planted down. From
the beginning the whites saw and felt that
the blacks must be dealt with candidly and
fairly. It was useless to invite the colored
voter to support any man, or any set of men,
who did not acknowledge that the law made
the black the political and civil equal of
those whom he sustained at the ballot-box,
or elevated into the cushioned chairs of of?
fice. This was plain to begin with. The
next thing was to give a fit expression to the
popular conviction.. There was no active
political organization outside of the Radical
party; the Democracy were hibernating, and
may be now-despite this torrid weather.
As the best and quickest way of reacliing
the desired point, a meeting was held of the
editors of the Opposition press. That meet?
ing affirmed the civil and political equality
of ull the citizens of the State, and the equal
right of all citizens to hold public office.
And it advised, besides, that a State Con?
vention be held on June 15th, to nominate a
State ticket, and make other arrangements
for conducting the fall canvass. The action
of the Press Conference-relating to the sta?
tus of the freedmen-was accepted and
warmly commended by every newspaper in
South Carolina, with only" three or four ex?
ceptions. And the people are to the full as
unanimous os the press.
Now and then a comatose politician gath?
ers his wits about him, and proves, to the
satisfaction of bis companion mummies,
that a cuneiform inscription is plainer than
Roman*text, and that two and two make
But as a mass, as a whole, the white peo?
ple of South Carolina do recognize to-day
the civil and political equality of their col?
ored fellow-citizens. This, then, shows the
vast importance of the State Reform Con?
vention, for that convention-the mouth?
piece of the people-will be a living witness
of the truth and sincerity of thc whole Re?
form movement. For the firat time in our
history, the representative white men aud
representative colored men of South Caro?
lina, will take Counsel together for the com?
mon weal. There is no distinction of rich
or poor, white or black, of old or new politi?
The delegates come from the rice lands of
the coast and the mines of the upper belt,
they come from every part of the State ; and
it remains with the convention to say wheth?
er these patient travellers, the enthusiastic
advocates of Retrenchment and Reform,
shall have all their labor and pains as their
sole reward, or shall make a square stand?
up fight against Scott and his minions.
This is tho gist of the whole question.
Looking over the whole field, scanning the
long horizon, it is hard to find one argu?
ment against immediate action-imme?
diate nomination-that will hold water
for an instant. A nomination of candidates
for Governor and Lieutenant-Governor, to
ran against Scott, and, perhaps, Elliott, will
unite and consolidate the Reformers-it will
give the people a ceutre, it will impel them
to organizo and work, it will give them a
head and chief, it will show them that suc?
cess is possible. On the other hand, if no
nominution be made, the whole movement
falls to the ground, and even in the county
elections tho Opposition will be decisively
defeated. Indeed, the only way to succeed
in the counties is by having a nomination at
once. That nomination will lead to unity
of thought and action ; it will eukiudio anew
the slumbering fires of patriotic zeal; it will
so bring out the white arri the black cham?
pions of Reform, that eve 1 if we were to (ail
upon tho general ticket, we should have
either a small majority or a thumping big
minority in the General Assembly of tho
If the attempt be made, something will
surely be gained; but if hand? bu folded und
no nomination made, the people would lose
all aud get what they would deserve
Ajjd surely it is better to break the sword
in the thick of thc fight, than to allow it to
rust in the scabbard. The time for action
has co/ne; and thc people demand to be led
against the enemy. But the convention
must decide. Should thut body determine
to make no nominations, South Carolina is
utterly lost for many years to come. If,
however, the convention grapple manfully
with suspicion and doubt, if they show the
peoplo UTefenemy's works and his battered
line3 of defence, if they put forth a ticket
that all honest men can support-thea will
the people arise, then will they work, then
will the ancient ardor clench the hand and
Hush the cheek; thea will the people in ser?
ried column, press rapidly on to victory.
This is the consummation so devoutly de?
sired by nil the decent men in the State.
Co-operation in Germany.
A correspondent writing fi-om Germany
furnishes particulars of the great co-opera?
tive bank at Breslau. It is a loan bank,
the loans being advanced to its members on
easy terms of payment, secured by mortui
ge3 which it rarely forecloses, encouraging
members by aid and counsel when they are
in difficulties. It deals with laboring peo?
ple; Ones and forfeitures are not imposed
for delinquencies. A weaver, for instance,
having learned his trade, pays his initiation
fee, subscribes for shares in the bank to the
amount of the loan he expects to ueed, and
in the course of a month or two the bank
enables him to purchase directly the yarn
that he proposes to weave, the loom that he
will weave it upon, perhaps the house which
will contain the loom in which be and his
family will reside. A dozen weavers, club?
bing together, similarly helped, may start a
cloth factory. In general, the bank endea?
vors to enable its members to be the mer?
chants and managers of their own labor.
Co-operative stores for provisions receive
its assistances, in all cases, dispensing with
intermediary dealers. It has no deal?
ings with the wealthy. Not only in
Breslau itself, but also in the towns
around it, co-operative stores and small fac
toriei spring up; some of them have al?
ready paid back their loans, and returning
dividends to their stockholders. The bank
has 3500 members, who clear 9A per cent, on
their money, besides a percentage of bene?
fit funds. Its cash capital, made up of
small initiation fees and instalments on
shares, is 81,000,000, and its profits last
year exceeded $100,000. Thi3 bank is one
of a confederacy of 1500 banks, having 300,
000 members, SIOO.000,000 money on hand?*|
making loans last year of not less than 139,
000,000 thalers, and a common centre in
the Genossenschafts Bank in Berlin, which
itself assists in turn these banks, and aids
in preserving thc financial equilibrium of
this vast system from its own resources,
which includes 16,000,000 thalere circula?
