-Themeeting of French citizens at Delmont-.'
?o's, lOJtNeW ioik, on Monday evening, to
l.T?T. AO i?i.V....v r]
alte action in regard to thc present cri?is bc
twt>en France and Prussia, was very largely
attended, and the enthusiasm which prevail?!
waa Intense. At 8 o'clock over SOO persons of
every class of French society were crowded
into the spacious parlors of the place of meet?
ing, while a crowd of sympathizers, unable to
obtain admission, was gathered outside, and
caused no small surprise to the fashionables
supping In the lower dining-rooms by their
excited talk and gestures. M.Gerdy,having been
chosen president, made a brief but stirring ad?
dress. He had always considered war a great ca?
lamity, but their hearts had reached their
couotxy's appeal and were ready to answer.
Prussia wished to dismember France, aud
even dared to lay claim to Alsace and Lorraine,
forgetting how the people of th03e provinces
rose en masse and furled the Br nus wickers
beyond the French frontier. He stated the
i object ot the meeting to be to make arrange?
ments for a sub-scrip ion to aid the wounded
and the widows* and orphans ot those who
might be slain in the national cause. Mr. D.
J. Touhy, an Irishman, asked permission to
speak; he had lived twenty years In New York
and knew that his countrymen sympathized
with the French, not only on account
of- traditions and history, but because the
war was declared one between the Saxon
and Celtic races. If France desired Irish
aid it would be afforded, for nothing would
please an Irishman more than to fight under a
leader like McMahon. [Applause.] In con'
elusion the speaker suggested a vigilance com?
mittee, to see that the neutrality laws be
strictly enforced, and a mass meeting of
French and Irish citizens to counterbalance
the effect of the Prussian demonstration. Af?
ter stirring speeches by Mr. Strauss and Mr.
Fortwengler, a subscription committee of
twenty was chosen, consisting of some of the
most prominent and Influential French citizens
of New York. Mr. Lasalle afterwards address?
ed the meeting, and, before its adjournment,
over $3000 were taken in subscriptions.
A Word to tile South Carolina Re.
The respectable Republicans, who have
made South Carolina their permanent home,
must, if they have an ounce of- worldly wis?
dom, support with their votes the Progres?
sive party, whose watchwords are Union
Retrenchment-Reform. They may hang
-back until the last moment, and go with re?
luctance to the ballot-box; but they must
vote with that party which alone, in this
State, promises them a faithful and capable
government which will protect all men,
whatever their color or condition, and en?
able every class to live in honesty, decency
No sacrifice of political principle is de?
manded of any Republican who sustains the
Union Reform party. All that he is asked
is, to. protect his owu interests, to work for
his own good, to disavow all connection
with the rogues and dolts who are opeuly
repudiated by the independent Republicans
of the Northern and Western States.
The cardinal doctrine of the National Re?
publican party, during the past ten year3,
has been the emancipation of the slaves,
and, its radical corollary, universal, or im?
partial, suffrage. By the Thirteenth amend?
ment to the Constitution of the United
States, involuntary servitude, except for
crime, is abolished; and, by the Fifteenth
amendment, the denial of the right to vote
on account of race, color or previous condi?
tion is absolutely prohibited. These amend?
ments are recognized as a binding portion of
the organic law of toe country. Up to this
'point there ?3 no difference between the
South Carolina Republican and the South
Carolina Democrat The only distinction
between them is, that the Republican, of
bis own accord, fought and voted to engraft
these principles upon the Federal and State
Constitutions ; while the Democrat fought and
voted against them, although, now that-not?
withstanding his opposition-they are the
?aw, be accepts them as such, and yields to
them an implicit obedience. This is the only
distinction. And the Republican who works
with the Democrat as a Union Reformer no
miora compromises a political principle than
does the'Republican Congressman who, upon
a particular measure, votes against his Re?
publican colleagues and, as a matter of
course, accepts the result of the voting,
whether it be in accordance with his own
opinions, or contrary to them. On the
other hand, the Democrat, in obeying the
laws of the country, no moro compromises
his political principle than did the Jacobites,
who, after years of disaster and defeat, be?
came the loyal subjects of William or Anue.
It is a well-settled principle that the laws
must be one ye J, whatever may be thought
of their wisdom or justice. The choice is
between obedience and revolution. This
last is not dreamed of by the Democrats of
the South. They must, therefore, and do,
obey the law. When, then, the honest Re?
publican and honest Democrat unite in a
crusade against corruption and vice, they
occupy the same ground, and neither caa
justly be said to act inconsistently, or to
abandon a political principle.
It will be said, however, that there are
other questions which divide Republicans
from Democrats and make it difficult for
them to work together as political allies
and Mends. Free Trade, as opposed io
Protection, is not a party: issue, for there
are Republican free-traders and Demo?
cratic protectionists. The same may be said
of the new-fangled notion of Woman's Suf?
frage. In truth, thc only national question
which divides the two parties at this time, 13
w . ; ?r the General Government shall be
suyr ?Oj or whether the States shall control
their own affairs, being, as States, wholly
independent of the interference of Congress,
within the limits prescribed by the United
States Constitution. This is the one
great question which divides Republi?
cans and Democrats, but upon the State
canvass in South Carolina it has no
bearing whatever, nor does it in any
sort or'shape affect the adherents of either
side in their connection with the Union Re?
form party. The work before this people is
the regeneration of the State Government,
not the contraction or expansion of the
powers of Congress; so that the ojaly antag?
onizing question is out of sight, and should
be out of mind, while the gQod people of the
State labor and strive to obtain a govern?
ment which shall be neither Democratic nor
Republican, but the worthy representative
of all South Carolina!
There being no valid parly reasons why
the respectable Republican should not march
with his friends and neighbors under the
banners of. Reform, he is, Tree to act as ms y
be best for his own interests, for the securi?
ty: of his property and the welfare of hie
family. This relieves the situation of its
only embarrassment. The Kot?Drn^Kg,
which the Union Reform partyiwaa o^an
ized to defeat, has doubled the'State debt,
bas doubled and trebled State taxation, has
sought to array the blacks in armed hostility
to the whites,- and has denied justice to the
whiles while according license to the blacks.
Under the rule of that Ring, the whole State
has stood still, and while that Ring controls
the administration, South Carolina cannot
thrive, nor can her people prosper. Another
two years of the rule of the Ring will make
the people of this State exiles or paupera
Republicans and Democrats will be whelmed
in a common ruin. As a matter, then, of
self-preservation, and of common-sense busi?
ness calculation, all men who expect to live
honestly must support any movement whose
only object is the overthrow of that Ring of
Robbers. The only movement which can
overthrow the Ring is the Union Reform
party. And that party every honest Re?
publican must joiu-or be ruined, iu the
event of its failure, by the insupportable
taxation, which i3 the natural fruit of reck?
less waste in public affairs, and of private
and official corruption.
The Rascalities of the Land Ring.
Many of the rascalities of the Land Ring,
of which Governor Scott i3 the public head,
have already been brought to light. We
have shown that the Land Ring, in open de?
fiance of the law, bought land to the amount
of $560, OOO, while the amount appropriated by
the Legislature for the purpose was only $200, -
000, in bonds of the State. We have shown
that the Land Ring bought 2000 acres of
land in Oconee County at $6 an acre, which
is an extravagant price for four-fifths of ?he
land in the county; and we have shown that
one tract so bought by the State, at $6 an
acre, was Bold a few months backs at $1
an acre. We have shown that, in Lancas?
ter County, the Land Ring paid $8032 for a
tract of land declared to be utterly worth?
less. ' We have shown that the Land Ring
made the, State pay $120,000 for a tract of
land which cost them $30,000. And now j
we show the style in which the Land Ring
arrange things in Beaufort, The following
letter tells the whole tale:
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
Another piece of rascality by the Land Com?
mission Ring. In Beaufort County, the deputy
land commissioner, aided and assisted by W.
J. Whipper, bought nineteen hundred and odd
acres of land from a man at $2 25 per acre,
and made him sign titles at $5 per acre, thus
clearing the neat sum of five thousand five
hundred dollars, to be divided between them,
and leaving the score to be paid by this poor
old tax-ridden State !
I Is lt any wonder that Whipper is able to buy
$0000 farms, to clothe himself in purple and
fine linen, to fare sumptuously every day, and
lead thc life of a sybarite generally, while his
poor deluded followers are fed upon the husks
of worn-out and falsified promises of "lorty
acres and a mule ?" The facts lu this case are
well known, and can be substantiated by most
respectable witnesses. BIRDSEYE.
This confirms, if any confirmation were
necessary, the specific charges of corruption
set forth by General Butler, at Picke?s
Courthouse. It must prove to the land?
owners of the State that, unless they go to
work at once, they will be eaten out of
house and home by Scott, Parker and
their tools. The result of the Reform canr
vasa resta w?tn the white people of the State.'
If every honest white mau will devote five
minutes of each day* to an elucidation of the
principles of theUnion Reform party, and to
an exposure of the rascalities of the Ring,
we shall carry with us, by force of convic?
tion, one-half the freedmen in South Caro?
lina, and elect Carpenter and Butler by a
sweeping majority. But if Hie whites con?
tent themselves with reading newspapers,
and listening to speeches, the Reform con?
test must be close and the result doubtful.
The newspapers and the campaign speeches
furnish the ammunition for the fight, but
every man must make up his own political
cartridges and do his own political shoot?
IN noticing the fact that the Chesterfield
Democrat, hitherto an opponent of theUnion
Reform cause, had declared for Carpenter
and Butler, we cheerfully comply with the
request that we should state that the politi?
cal views of General Prince, the late editor
of that journal, have undergone no modifica?
tion. THE NEWS had previously noticed the
change ia the editorial management of the
Democrat, by which Mr. V. Little succeeds
Tire editor of the Lancaster Ledger learn?
ed, while at Rock Hill, last week, that seve?
ral hundred Winchester rifles and 10,000
rounds of fixed ammunition were in the de?
pot at that place, awaiting transportation
to Lancaster. These are for the Riog mili?
tia. Reformers, white aad colored, take no?
tice and act accordingly.
THE list of appointments for Carpenter
and Butler, the Reform candidates, is well
before the public. Will Governor Scott meet
on the stump the champions of Reform, or
will be bide his chance and make a furtive
speech, where oo one eau hear and answer
WE expect from Governor Scott an ans?
wer to this plaia questioo : Do you deoy
that, after your eiectioo as Governor of
South Carolina, you said that you "wished
"the State would go Democratic," and that
you were "tired of the negroes," who elected
you to office ?
WHEN the nominee ol the Robbing Ring
for Governor of South Carolina vowed and
protested that he "wanted the State to go
"Democratic," he was frightened out of his
wits, and was seriously thinking of return?
ing incontinently to Ohio.
GOVERNOR SCOTT has not only disgraced
the State, but has made a house of shame
of the Executive Mansion; but, as voters,
he was tired of the colored people.
GOVERNOR SCOTT has become a millionaire,
while the people groan under the burden of
double and treble taxation. No wonder that
he "is tired of the negroes."
WILL Governor Scott deny the truth of
the charges against his official auf! personal
character, printed in these coi'iu.-?. The
proofs are on the record.

QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to call the attention
of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts.
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, ftc.
There ls hardly a elty os town of any note lu 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?
tracts of the day, we have still further improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rival Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and.
delicacy of flavor, lt is a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In
short, we think lt the best that ls made, at least,
this ls the decision of the nest Judges In the coon
try. We don't pretend to compete In price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day, which are really but worthless componaos,
undeserving of the name.
For quality aad style, we defy competition.
