-There Is but little abatement In the excite?
ment attending the foul murder of Mr. Nathan,
?he wealthy broker of New York. The au?
thorities are vigilant and untiring in their
efforts to uurarel the> great mystery of the
jaurdw, and are pursuing a course which it is
believed will soon lead to tlie arrest ot the
guilty party. The theory appears to be grow?
ing Btronger dally that the heartless butchery
was perpetrated by other hands than those of
a professional cutthroat, and steps calculated
to fasten the guilt where it rightly belongs, for?
tified by a chain of evidence that is necessary
to be established in order to vindicate the
anomalous charges that will be preferred,
are being taken. The detectives have visited
the house where the murder was committed,
and have examined every stain, every spat?
ter, noted the present position of every?
thing-the body, the "dog," the drawer, the
bed, the walls, the blood-blotches on the stairs,
and everything in minutia and in 'oto. and all
conclude that a professional burglar would not
have concealed his work of blood with such a
nicety, being a comparative stranger to the
locality, as was really the fact in this case.
Three characteristics are ascribed to the mur?
derer by the authorities-great knowledge of
the house, great desperation of determination,
great cunning. The first enabled him to know
that no noise would betray his acts. The se?
cond led him to exaggerate the violence he
applied to his victim. The third explains the
coolness and deliberation with which the
traces were destroyed or put out of sight.
However impatient th ? public may be, both
the prosecuting and the police ae'^orilies feel
sure-that they are leading up to tue man.
Tho Work Before Vs.
The total vote of the State, according to
the census of 1869-70, ?3 148,716, viz: White
59,301, and colored 89,41"). Spartanlmrg.
Greenville, Anderson, Oconee, Pickens,
Horry, Lexington, Chesterfield, Marion,
York and Lancaster have white majorities.
Marlboro' reports a colored majority of 2 ;
Union pf 182, and Laurens of 252. It may
fairly be assumed, therefore, that any po?
litical movement in which the white voters
are actively interested may count, to a cer?
tainty, upon the vote of these fourteen coun?
ties. In these fourteen counties, which re?
turn 39 members of the lower house, the ma?
jority for any movement vigorously sustained
by the whites must bc, at least, 10,000. This
is what the Union Reform party has at its
back to begin with. Fourteen counties,
thirty-nine members of the Legislature, and
ten thousand votiDg majority.
It was evident from the beginning that
the Union Reform party could not win un?
less the whites were united and were deter?
mined to give it their heartiest help. Aie1,
at one time it was doubtful whether tho
whites could be aroused from their apathy,
and made to understand that the October
elections would decide whether this people
should be political leeches, exile3 or paupers.
But the sterling good sense of the intelligent
neu of the State has taught them that ac?
ton is safety and inaction is ruin, and tiic
?onest oppouents of the Reform movement
ure now just as rare as snows in the heats
?f summer. Only one newspaper in South
karolina (besides the twin falsifiera of the
Ring) fights against the soldiers of Reform,
ind that paper is doitig the cause far more
?Ood than harm. The whole up-country is
:onsolidated and made homogeneous, by tho
ogic of events and the reasoning of the
standard-bearers of Reform. And as well as
:an be judged by public act and private in?
formation, the whites, of the middle and low
country are as firm and steadfast as the
people of the mountain border. Thia was
thc one great work to be accomplished. Un?
less the whites were uuited and showed a
arm front, we could not win. The whites
ire united, and weean win, aud shall !
What, after all. is the work before the
State ? The colored majority, according to
.he State census, is 30,114, assuming that
ill the vote? of beth colors go to the polls,
iny one can see at a glance that, in pro?
portion, the whites will vote more generally
han the blacks. The whites know the full
jxtent of their danger and men who have
10t voted in ten years will go to the polls in
October. To do otherwise i3 to compass
:heir own ruin. ? The freedmen, on the other
land, have far le33 at stake than they had
;wo years ago. Then, their freedom and
?nfranchisement was not an accomplished
act. Now, their privileges are confirmed
ind established-by law, and are acknowledg
3d by all good citizens. And yet at the
Presidential election of 186S-the election
vbicii, in the opinion of the blacks, was to
;onfirm their freedom, or remit them to :
?lavery-the total vote for Grant and Colfax 1
vA3 02,301 ; that is to 3ay, whites and blacks, |
ogelher, gave the Radical ticket 27, ll i les3 <
rotes than there were colored voters in I
he State. Again, the vote In favor of the 1
idoption of the new State Constitution-the I
'ery "charter of their liberties," a3 the I
?lacks call it-was only 70,753, counting i
rhites and blacks together. It is evident, 1
hen, that upon the adoption of the Recon- -
tructioi Constitution, at least 20,000 blacks '
[iii not vote at all: ?nd that at the Pre3t- 1
lential election or 1S6S, nearly 30,000 blacks I
lid not vote at all, or voted for Seymour and 1
Nair. Now, no sensiL.e man will pretend I
hat there id any reason why the freedmen I
hould vote more generally in 1870 than
hey did in 1868. The party claims upon
hem are no stronger, and there is no politi- (
al right or privilege ' at stake. It may be ,
afely estimated that thero are thousands of ,
egroes who, although they will not vote for ,
iarpenter and Butler, will not deposit their
allots fer the nomiuee3 of the, Ring. Look "
t thc second election of Whittemore to Con- ,
ress. The colored vote in the First Con- ,
ressional District i3 nearly 20,000; and yet ,
Whittemore only polled 11.101 votes. Th u .
i to say, there were nearly ten thousand ,
olored men in the district who were not ,
billing lo break with thvir party and vote ,
>r Captain Dunn, but who were cot corrupt ,
nd ignorant enough to vote for thc doubly- ,
??.graced Whittemore. Theso ten thousand ,
oters stayed away from the polls. ,
Reviewing the whole position by thc light
I the experience of the last two years, we
eliberately assert our conviction that
lough colored voters will slay away from 1
te polis, in October, to give. thc election to
attenter and Butler-provided that the
hites tum out in a body and vote the Re- .
>rm ticket. This 13 no w:ld conjecture; it (
i a plain arithmetical calculation.
We may say, however, once for all, that
re do not wish to see the blacks refrain
om exercising the privilege which they
ave gained at the cost of ' ears of agoniz
ig war and political pertui oation. Wc de- v
ire that they should come ont and vote- ti
ot as slaves of the Union League*, but aa c
?ee men. And, in that cass, the white peo- J
le exerting themselves to teach the freed- '
len the true is.iue3 of the canvass, we can '
efeat Scott and Ran3ier by at least tweuly 4
tousand majority. '
The "Typical Carpet-Bagger."
Without compromising ita staunch inde?
pendence, as without swerving from its con
sistent advocacy of Republican doctrine,
The Nation haa, by its sober reasoning and
fairness of spirit, gained a large influence
among the people of the South. It wa3 the
first Republican journal of note to expose
the excesses of the South Carolina Ring,
and it now admits that the "typical carpet?
bagger," with whom we are cursed, justi?
fies the South in it3 hatred of him, and is a
fruitful source of the haired of the North
which delays the restoration of friendly feel?
ing between the two sections. The Na?
tion 3ays :
"The Northern people are beginning to under?
stand the carpet-bagger tolerably well, and he
is on his last legs, no doubt, but every month
by which bis final end can be hastened ls pre?
cious; and it is to be hoped that light from ali
sources may be thrown on hte flgurp till there
may not be a man in the Republlcar party who
does not Justify the South in its bs :red of him,
and see why the South ls to be pai tly excused
for hating us. A typical carpet- agger may
actually have been a few years ago t bankrupt
saloon-keeper, of the ability usua: with his
class, whose saloon decayed because ufa vehe?
ment suspicion that it was a house ot assigna?
tion, and an absolute certainty that It WM a
very unsatisfactory place in which to eat and
drink; he may have been more than half-re?
lieved to have set his ealoon on fire for thc
sake of getting the Insurance money ; he
may then have been a soldier, known for curry?
ing favor, and a petty officer hated for small
tyrannies; he may have always been Innocent
of more education than goes to the reading
of the Ledger; and yet to-day he may be lieu?
tenant-governor of a State with a prosperous
'.'ring;" or he may be a Congressman and a
seller of cadetshlps; or-and here is a chlel
concern of oura with him-he may be a repre?
sentative of Northern civilization, an instruc?
tor of the negro voter, making him rotten in
legislative rascality before he is ripe for the
suffrage; an agent in reconstruction, and a
fruitful source of the hearty hatred for the
North, which has so long delayed the peace
that ls essential. And worse cases than this
could be cited. Every Southern State has had
its share of them, and the Republican party
lias suffered in consequence about as much as
it is wise to attempt bearing."
? The meaning of this is plain enough.
This "typical carpet-bagger" ' ia tba repre?
sentative, in the South, of the Northern
States and of the National Republican party,
and the burden of his crimes weighs heavily
upon Northern Republicans who hate ras?
cality, and who do not desire the overthrow
or their party. They see that the Scott
Ring, and their like, will break down any
political party which attempts to uphold
them. And The Nation, as tbe mouth?
piece of pure and liberal Republicanism,
tell3 the people that the Republican party
will not accept the responsibility for the mis?
deeds of men who profane the party name
and disgrace its record. This is the only
interpretation which can he put upon the
words of The Nation. It hopes for the suc?
cess of the Union Reform party, and con?
demns the carpet-bagger. That is to say,
in the opinion of the disinterested Republi?
cans of the North, the mau who votes for
Scott and Rans'.i gives his countenance
and support to an infamous and extrava?
gant government, and, at the same time,
injures the prospects of the National Republi?
can party in every State of the Union. Un?
der these circumstances what Republican,
whiie or colored, can refuse his support to
the Party of Reform.
Thc A'lctory In Vorth Carolina. *
We congratulate the Conservative party
of North Carolina upon their glorious victor}-.
In spite of Holden's terrorism, and the inso?
lent tyranny of his rufiian militia, the Con?
servatives of the old North State carry both
houses of the Legislature by decisive majori?
ties, and elect five, out of seven, members of
God grant that the Palmetto State may
tell the same tale in October!
A COLORED MAX, named Limbrick Thomas,
waa nominated for the Legislature by the
Reform Convention of Un;on County. But,
as the Times saya, Limbrick did not feel
that he was competent to dil so important a
position, and requested a friend to say to the
convention that he felt it to be bis duty to
liimself, his race and the State at lurge to
Jecline the honor they had so cordially con?
ferred. He requested that some more com?
petent man be selected in hi3 stead. Notti?
ng could induce Limbrick to accept the
lomination. He said he belonged to the
Reform party, and would roll ap his sleeves
ind work hard for that party, if they would
put honest and intelligent candidates In the
leid; but if they were going to put up igno?
rant office-seekers he didn't see how we are
:o get reform, and he might as well go over
:o the Republican party at once.
THE Unionville Times, speaking of Judge
Carpenter and General Butler, says: "At
'every point they were inspired with fresh
'courage and zeal. If the canvass ia vigo
'rously continued to the end, the triumph
Jof Reform i3 certain, and rascality and
'tyranny will be buried so deep in th is State
'that nothing but the general resurrection
'will be able to exhume the rotten carca33
'of Scott and his Ring. They (Carpenter
and Butler) are undergoing moat trying
'labora for the great cause of Reform, but
'we are delighted to know that their labors
'are not in vain. Wherever they have
'spoken they have drawn hundreds of cou?
verts to the Reform rank3, and aroused an
'enthusiasm for the cause never before aeen
'in this State."
TUE Journal, confesses that it had but lit
le faith io the succeaa of the Reform move
nent in Barnwell County, but the meeting
leid at the courthouse, on Monday, has
nade it take heart "and firmly believe that
'if a -strong pull and a pull altogether' ia
'made, we will succeed in casting off the
'vampires which are preying upon thc life
'blood of our people."
TUE Barnwell Journal bas had an iuler
iew with General Kershaw, who gave it
be mo3t encouraging statementa of the
ause of Reform among all cl.13303. The
rournal says: "If Reform excites as much
'general enthusiasm in the lower sections
'of our State as it has ia the upper, we can
'not dou'ot the Unat triumph of Reform
Governor Scott will Take Notice.
It is gratifying to seethat the leading in?
dependent Republican papers of the country,
in commenting upon the recent extraordi?
nary doings in North Carolina, almost with?
out exception denounce the infamous "Win
"chesterrifle policy," which Holden and his
minions, at-the suggestion of our own valiant
Executive, have been striving to enforce.
Prominent among the journals which have
taken this stand are the Chicago Tribune,
New York Times and Cincinnati Commercial.
The latter having been impeached by an
ultra-Radical newspaper with party infideli?
ty on this score, says in reply that "if the
"policy of governing the reconstructed
"States, as illustrated by Governor Holden,
"of North Carolina, ?3 endorsed by the Re?
publican party, then the Commercial is
"not Republican." The Washington Star
say3: "Holden's sudden resort to the moat
' 'arbitrary and extreme measures ever wit?
nessed under a Republican form of gov?
ernment, just on the eve of the State eiec
"lion, leads irresistibly to the conclusion
"that he has been, influenced in his action
"by the determination to control the elec?
tion to the continuation of his own sway."

GREAT REDUCTION IN PBICES.
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 It unnecessary at present to enter
Into a lengthy description or their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a eity or town of any note in the
country into whlcn 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. It ls a strictly pure and high?
ly concentrated Extract or Vane's B^ans. Ia
short, we think it the best that is made at ?east,
this ls the decision of the best ledges in M. t coun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
many of the so-called Flavoring Extraers of the
day, which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
For quality and style, we defy competition.
