the left bank of the Ehlne. These fortifica?
tions, with the Fortress of Ehrenbreitstein,
were over twenty years in rebuilding, after
the downfall of Napoleon, and cost some $5,
000,000. The principal strength of the city lies
in Ehrenbreitstein (honor's broad stone,) a
village and fortress situated on a large rock
which towers above everything for miles
around. . It 1B impregnable to assault on three
sides, but on the northwest it is considerably
exposed. Four hundred heavy guns are mount?
ed In the fortress, and these sweep the Rhine
in all directions, and the road to Nassau. On
the top of the rock is a great platform which
ser ves as a parade-ground, and which covers
large arched cisterns, supplied with water by
springs without the walls, and capable of con?
taining a three years' supply of the liquid.
There is also a well, sunk 400 feet in the rock,
communicating with the Rhine. It is not
thought that any attempt will be made by the
French to take Coblenz by a direct attack,
but a Sank movement to drive the Prussians
irom the place will doubtless be essayed.
Reform In the Up-Country
Tho candidates of the Reform party, ac?
companied by that gallant soldier, General
J. B. Kershaw, have been received in the
up-country with unbounded enthusiasm.
At Bickens Courthouse, on Monday, at Pen?
dleton, on Tuesday, and at Anderson Court?
house on Wednesday, the people were pro?
fuse in their expressions of approval of the
principles and plan of the Reform canvass;
and the convincing arguments of the elo?
quent speakers, while they proved the nec?
essity of Reform, satisfied their attentive
hearers that they were laborers in a patriotic
work, in which all good men Bhould actively
engage for the welfare and benefit of the
General Kershaw, who was the first speak?
er, explained the reasons which led him to
become ao h oar ty a supporter of the Reform
movement, and made a forcible exposi?
tion of its platform, as one upon
which all honest men might stand for
the redemption of South Carolina. Gen?
eral Butler, who spoke next, exposed,
in barning, words, the rascalities of the
Biog, and brought against Governor Scott
a-series of specific charges, any one of which,
while they stand uncontradicted, is enough
to brand the Ring candidate as a man
wholly unworthy of public confidence or pri?
vate trust Judge Carpenter, who closed
thc speaking, showed the consistency of his
conduct as a Republican, and made an earn?
est appeal for that harmony of race and
class, without which the State cannot pros?
The speeches, of which we print a full re?
port, are worthy of the distinguished gen?
tlemen who delivered them, and of the broad
and liberal principles of the Union Reform
party. They will convince all but thOBe

eyes and see not, have ears and will not
The canvass opens well. Let it be push?
ed to a hapoy conclusion.
The Last New Burlesque.
This is the age of burlesque. Neither
Shakespeare nor Boker is safe. The facile
pen of the parodying writer makes fun alter?
nately of the sorrows ot Werther and the
agonies of the dime novel, and the wide
range, of popular subjects - social, lyrical
and dramatic-is sifted diligently and dex?
terously in the interest of public kudos and
private pence. One class of topics has, it is
true, failed to receive its doe share of the
burlesquer's attention. Political characters
abd political platforms have not been done
into verse' for public delectation. The op?
portunity was not- wanting. Our smoky
Cosar at Long Branch, the antics of Con?
gress, the beauties Of Reconstruction-these
were themes upon which the barlesqaers
would naturally seize. But they did not
They allow the opportunity to escape them
of shooting folly as it flies, and leave it to a
notorious Congressman-not a member of the
literary* guild-to give to the world lt living,
shining example of a political burlesque.
This burlesque is-the so-called platform of
the so-called Republican party of South Car?
olina; and the burlesquer is no less a person
than B. F. Whittemore, the twice elected,
and doubly disgraced, member or tbe Na?
tional Legislature from the First Congres?
Whittemore, as all the people know, re?
signed his seat in Congress, and so, with the
sid of Governor Scott avoided an ignomin?
ious expulsion. Congress declared bim un?
worthy to represent the people, bat, happily
for him, his constituents could not read, and
did not know the difference between a cadet
ship and an ocean steamer. Whittemore
wis re-elected, and Congress flatly Refused
to! receive bim. Away he buzzed, with a
merry,.merry hom', to' poor South Carolina,
putting in an appearance at Columbia just
at the time of holding the State Radical Con?
tention to which ho wa3 a worthy delegate,
^tewinga just appreciation of the more than
Roman virtue of the Congressman who sold
un office' within his gift- aa a representative
of : the people, and who is charged with
stealing $5000 from Mr. Shaw, of Boston,
the convention appointed Whittemore the
chairman of the committee on credentials.
Who,, of the Ring, might not enter in while
Whittemore held the key ? He was then ap?
pointed chairman of the committee on plat?
form, and, in that capacity; submitted to
the convention a platform, or declaration of
principles, which, as printed in our issue or
yesterday, was unanimously adopted.
It was necessary, in the first place, that
Whittemore should soft-sawder President
Girant, and give Congress a big dose of
praise,. This must be done to strengthen
w'hittemore'a^ame ir, perchance, his be?
nighted constituents should elect bim for the
third time. Tl.'. ?xplains the fact that, on
the threshold of a purely local canvass, three
of the seven resolutions bf whi-.:ii the Radical
platform consists, are exclusively addressed
to questions of national policy. This being;
done, in real en nest, for the benefit of Whit?
temore, that, untiring intriguer gave rein
to hts fancy. aud .perpetrated the heaviest
joke of the age.
No one. would dare to suppose that Mr.
Whittemore was jesting, when he framed
that portion of the Radical party platform
Which refers to the Fifteenth, amendment
?ndtb?'Clvil Right? bill. The TTJmon Re?
form party recognae that Amendment and
that Bill as the law ot the land, and will
obey them in letter and spirit . Even Mr.
Whitemore can do no. more, jj however.: ie
may "hail with'gratitude" what the Reform?
ers accept as a fact, and however he may
pledge "a firm, fearless and unfaltering sup
"port" to what the Reformers acknowledge
as a law to which, while it stands unrepeal
ecl, every citizen owes obedience. The fun
begins when Whittemore, for the Radical
Ring, endorses "the administration of Gov
"ernor Scott, as wise, economical and hon
"est" How Whittemore must have chuckled
as he wrote .tb>?e saucy words: Wise!
Economical ! -"Honest ! This wisdom, thi3
economy, this honesty, are defined by Gen?
eral Butler and General Kershaw and Judge
Carpenter, in their speeches delivered at
Pickens Courthouse, as Folly, Extravagance
and Theft. And Whittemore knows all this
just as well as the white people know it, but
then "his constituents can't read," and his
work is only a burlesque. But when Whit?
temore declared that the party insisted on
"a continuance of strict and close economy
"in all departments of the government," he 1
may have told the truth. A "strict and
"close economy," like that of the last two
years, would make the Ring millionaires,
and enable Whittemore to snap his fingers at
the sale of $500 cadetships.
If the Whittemore platform is not distress?
ingly fanny, what is it ? The alternatives
are plain. Whittemore was either poking
sarcasm at the Ring, or he was telling a de?
liberate untruth. Yet the man who can sell
a cadetship, and argue that the crime was
justified by the use said to have been made
of the price of his shame, might well pick
the pockets of the citizens of the State, upon
the plea that carrying purses was unhealthy
in hot weather. The man who can sit
quietly down under the specific charge that
he stole $5000 from a mercantile house in
Boston, may give his hearty approval to the
administration of Governor Scott. These
are whitewashing times. Judas Iscariot is
treated as the victim of ill-timed zeal and
misplaced confidence, rather than as the be?
trayer of his Lord. Whittemore may be re?
garded by the Ring as a martyr, whose only
fault was his detection. And Whittemore
returns the favor in kind.
After all, Whittemore was well chosen to
chisel out the epitaph of the Ring. Such a
man was best fitted to praise the gang of
adventurers who treble the public debt,
make taxation burdensome beyond endur?
ance, prevent immigration, leave the re?
sources of the State undeveloped, and neg?
lect the education of the people. Such a
man was best fitted to eulogize the nominee
of the Ring-R. K. Scott-who, after his
election, told General Wade Hampton that
"he wished the Stale lo go Democratic,'" that
he was "tired of the negroes," and that "he
"would make enough of them resign to give
"the whites a majority in the Legislature."
This damning statement was made by Gene?
ral Butler, at Pickens Courthouse, on Mou
The platform of the RiDg is made up of
equal proportions of broad burlesque (or utter
falsehood) and glittering generalities about
accomplished facts. There is nothing in it,
outside of its unqualified approval of Gene?
ral Grant, which deserves consideration; nor
does it contain one catching appeal to the
voters of the State. The platform is worthy
of Whittemore, and Whittemore is a conge?
nial companion to Ransier and Scott
"The Call to Arms.'
It is announced, with a blustering air,
that the "sensational statements" of this
paper will not prevent the organizing and
arming of the State militia This is more
than we expect if not more than we desire.
All that we claim is that the white compa?
nies of volunteers should not be systematical?
ly rejected by Governor Scott, while the col?
ored companies are systematically accepted,
and no questions asked. This conduct,
taken in connectfon with other facts which
have been made public, is a sufficient proof |
that it is intended to use the militia for an
illegal purpose-for the purpose of overaw?
ing the white and colored voters who stand
in opposition to the Ring. This being the
condition of affaira, we call upon the
white people to make ready-with or without
a militia organization-to defend at the polls
their own rights and the rights of the color?
ed men who support them. We want no riot
or insurrection. All that we demand is, a fair
election, and no intimidation. And this we
intend to have.
WE ARE requested to give notice that
Judge Carpenter, General Butler and Gene?
ral Kershaw will speak at Cokesbury, on the
Greenville and Columbia Railroad, on Satur?
day night next. On Saturday morniDg they
speak at Abbeville Courthouse.
THE Ring, who insist that the Reform
Party make specific charges against Gover?
nor Scott, will, perhaps, be satisfied with the
"specific charges" contained in General But?
ler's speech delivered at Pickens Courthouse,
on Monday. " Dare Scott deny the truth of |
these charges ?
. Now that Governor Scott is renominated,
will he meet his opponents on tho stump, or
will he skulk in the rear and leave this work
to be done by his lieutenant, A. J. Ransier?

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracta.
As ten years have now elapsed since we first in?
troduced them to the notice of the American pub?
lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter
Into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac
There ls hardly a eity or town of any note in.the
country into which they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracta of the day, we have still hrtoteowl
their Quality, and now we firmly and honestly be
Uevethat they stand without a rival. Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure?and high
iv concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beana. In
short we think it the best that is made, at least,
this l? the decision of the best judges in the coun?
try We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of the so-caUed Flavoring Extracts of tba
day. which are really but worthless Compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quauty and style, we defy competition.
