-The present Charles "Dickens does not in
the least resemble his illustrious father in ap?
pearance or manner. He is a quiet, sober,
somewhat reticent, but withal exceedingly
gentlemanly and kindly man, of perhaps thir?
ty' years. He dresses more plainly and quietly
than did his lather; his manner is not so active;
his features are heavier, and his face is round?
er. He Joined the editorial corps ot All the
Year Round upon the retirement of Mr. Wills,
about two years ago, and bids fair to be as
successful as the elder Dickens-at least in the
editorial chair, being an industrious worker,
personally greatly liked by the o-enus irritabile,
as well as the rest of the world, and having
an excellent judgment and literary taste. He
is seldom away from his post in the little sanc
! tum adjoining that occupied by his fatiier, aud
his few contributions to the periodical press,
while they give no hint that he has inherited
the great peculiarities o? the elder's genius,
sufficiently prove that he has decided literary
ability and polish. As au amateur actor, too,
he ls said lo be excellent, though of course
j not the equal of the illustrious man whom we
now so earnestly mourn.
The City Debt.
We print tc-day an ofhcial statement show?
ing the amount of the interest falling due
upon the city debt in each year, the amount
of the principal of the debt annually falling
due and demanding payment, and the total
amount required in each year to meet the
interest and principal.
By this statement it will be seen that, in
the year 1871, the interest is $308,232, aud
tbe principal, falling due and past due, is
5)335,154. Adding to these two sums only
$400,000 for the curreut expenses of the
city, which is much Ies3 than the present
expenditure, the aggregate amouut required
in the fiscal year, 1871, is no less than $1,
043,386. Tfcat is to say, the tax to be lev?
ied to pay the principal and interest of the
debt will amount to about two and a half
per cent, of the total value of all the real
aud personal property, in Charleston. And
the tax needed to pay principal, interest and
current expenses will be more than four per
These are plain facts; and they warn the
people, while lt is yet time, to take what
steps may be prudent for putting the city
debt in a manageable condition. In its
presen!, shape the debt cannot be paid, and
this confession of insolvency, however dis
agreeable, may just as well be made un?
equivocally and at once.
Ye Hypocrites ! s
The orgau of the Scott Eing has prated
at times with seeming earnestness of the
policy of treating all men according to their
merits without reference to the color of their
skin ; and of this principle it is cons tantly
claiming to be the special champion and
apostle. How far its practice is cousistent
with its professions in this regard, may be
judged from the following paragraph which
we lind in the last number of the Printer's
"In Charleston, S rath Carolina, three oolored
printers are employed on a newspaper pub?
lished by the'Governor and other State of?
ficials. They reork in a separate room, and
baca no conception with Union . printers em?
ployed in the same establishment."
Colored men ! How like you this work?
ing "in a separate room." Is thi3 the
equality that the Hing, and its mouthpiece
have so long been promising you?
An Isasne of Fact!
' According to the Bing Organ, Governor
Scott denies that he did, as charged by Gen?
eral Butler, express the wish that the State
"would go Democratic," or that he said that
he was "tired of the negroes," and would
fill the places of the negro legislators with
Democrats. This anonymous statement
does not count for much. General M. C.
Butler charges distinctly that Scott did ut?
ter these words, and the people of the State
will kuow who to believe, Scott or Butler.
The most charitable supposition is, that
when he had his famous talk with Gen?
eral Wade Hampton, Scott was 30 badly
scared that he does not remember what he
actually did say.
A Paid Falichoort.
The Scott Organ, writing in the White?
more vein, protests thal the State taxation,
under the Ring, "has been reasonable and
is being reduced." What a whopper ! The i
tolal tax for the year i860 was $1,835,104. j
Whether this is "reasonable." is shown by I
two prominent examples. Oue-teuth of the
whole area of Fairfield County, aud one j
sixth of the whole area of Williamsburg
County, are advertised to be sold for unpaid
State and County taxes. And a3 the
carrent, expenses of the State were in?
creased, by the Bing, $300,000 in one year,
what hope is there of taxes "being re?
.Nailed to the Counter.
The Organ of Scott, DeLarge cfc Co. can?
not be cured of its old habits. It DOW says,
with barefaced impudence, that "the sole
"increase of iii? State debt, during the ad?
ministration of Governor Scott, has been
"for 5700,000 in bonds issued for the Land
"Commission." The figures lu the officia'
report of the Ring Comptroller-General nail
this lie to the cour *er. They show thal ia
one yeur the del't 0Tew from SC, 142,142 to
$10,209,680-exclusive of the $4,000,000 of
Blue Ridge boud3, and the half million is?
sued for the Land Commission !
A Master Stroke.
I ii ciaitned that Governor. Scott, "by
"purchasing these (State) bor.tl3, gave a
"then much-need-- guarantee to capitalists
"that these bonds wou'd be faithfully paid
"by the State." This is the root of 'he
wb' ' villany. Being cer oin of securiug
what legislation was needed for "bulling" the
market, he buys "a large amount of State
"bonds," and, out of the advance in their
price caused by the Ring legislation, fills
his own pockeu ut the expense of the
IT IS now said that a report wa3 called for
from. Land Commissioner Leslie, ;;nd was
made by Ww whera is that repu-t. We
dare the R.ug to produce it.
The Reform Canvass.
Already this week, stirring Reform moe!^
ings have been held at Saluda Old Town, at
Newberry, at Marion, at Orangeburg and at
Barnwell Courthouse. The people, when?
ever Reform meetings are held, are thor?
oughly aroused and sanguine of success.
At Saluda Old Town, on Monday, General
Kershaw read a letter from Judge Wardlaw,
iu which that venerable and distinguished
gentleman gives his "hearty commendation
"to those who are striving to expose and
"correct public abuses" in the Government
of the State.
Doing Good by Stealth.
The Organ of the Scott Ring admits "the
"fact that Governor Scott did purchase a
"large amount of bonds of the State"
Where did the money come from ! Before
bis election Governor Scott was so needy
that he regularly drew Iiis military pay be?
fore it was due, and when he left Ohio, to
our sorrow, his whole property was valued
for taxation at S14 75. Now he confesses
to $130,000. This tells the whole tale.
The Scott Organ denies that Governor
Scott introduced persons of ill-fame into the
Executive Mansion.- When the proofs are
produced, as they will be, the colored peo?
ple will learn, in an unpleasant way, how
dearly their model Governor loves the
women of their race.
THE Ring now say that the cherubic
I KimptOD, financial agent of the State, does
make "regular, frequeut and full reports.'1
Where are they ? The public are interested
to the tune of several millions of their
money; and all that is vouchsafed them is
the meagre statement submitted to the Gen?
eral Assembly, which show3 nothing more
than the receipt and expenditure of a vast
sum of money.
TUE Marion Star is happy to state that
"some of our best citizens who have been
"so disgusted with the corrupt administra
"tion of Scott, a3 to have avowed that they
"never would vote for a Republican, have
'retracted, under the powerful ana forcible
'teaching nf Judge Carpenter, and are now
"giving him their hearty support."
