-The sensation of the hour In Gotham last
week was a boat race on the'Harlem River, in
which girls were the contestants. The young
ladles who rowed ?he beats were all daughters
of respectable citlzens-boat-bulldcrs by trade.
They were properly and modestly dressed and
behaved in a thoroughly lady-like manner; but
the behaviour ol the spectators on the shore
was outrageous. They yelled and shouted,
used slang phrases, and sometimes Indulged
In vulgaritj'. The young lady rowers, howev?
er, did not heed them, but pulled manfully at
their oars. The course was to row one-half
mile, making three turns, being two miles in
all. Miss Amelia Sheehan was the winner.
The other competitors were the Misses Mary
Walton, Mary Kyle, Olivia Roberts and Annie
"Williams. The race was under the auspices of
the Empire City Rowing Club. Thc attend?
ance of spectators was Immense.
-Louis Napoleon bas saved up money
enough to put himself and his family beyond
Xhe reach of want for the rest of their days
Se has an annual income of five hundred thou
. -sand dollars from Investments In English
s funds, and"as much' more from Investments in
? Other countries, the United States Included.
This money has been made not merely by sav?
ings upon the enormous salary allowed him as
Emperor, but by speculations In stocks and
J-eal estate. As he had control of the whole
power of France both at home and abroad, it
has been easy for him to put the stock market
-up or down as he chose. The improvements
Sn Paris have also been a most fruitful'source
vOf wealth. Knowing before band where streets
and avenues were to be opened, he has been j
?ble to buy city lots at low prices, and then to
sell them at aa enormous value. All his old
cronies and friends have been enriched in the
same manner. Many of them were lu the
depths of poverty when he took possession ot
France, but now they are all millionaires.
-Anything more disgraceful than the New
York Republican State Convention has not for
some time sccurred. There were fisticuffs
and cut-throat tactics. The delegates are pro?
perly characterized as a menagerie of back?
biting politicians, Cockling and Fenton of
course being the leaders. Conkling out-ma
nouvred Fenton in the organization and In
the nomination, although Fenton had a ma?
jority of the delegates. Such was the bitter?
ness between the two factions that a free fight
was imminent throughout; unearthly yells and
screams came from both sides. Conkling
gained everything by pledging offices and
places. It is even said that he has made
Grant promise to mollify Greeley by giv?
ing him the English mission. Ot Wood?
ford, the nominee, the World says: uIu the
war he was a sort of ornamental general, a
well-meaning military dandy and flowery
spouter, who has np military record that any?
body remembers. Mr. Greeley wrote a bulky
history of the war in two large double-columned
octavo volumes of seven or eight hundred
pages, and General Woodforde name is not
once mentioned in the whole work !" The
paper sums him up as a general without
achievements, a lawyer without cases, an edi?
tor without vigor, and a candidate nominated
without any expectation that he could be
elected. The convention has increased the
enmity of Fenton and added new feuds to the
Republican organization; it will devour itself
with the utmost expedition.
Proposals for Peace.
The fundamental principle of the Union
Reform party of South Carolina is the recog?
nition of the equal right of all citizeus to
vote and hold public office. This is not, as
the Ring attempt to make the colored peo?
ple believe, a sullen acquiescence in an ac?
complished fact. It is the expression of the
deliberate purpose of the whites to admit, and
affirm, every privilege which the laws confer |
upon the blacks; and this ?3 doue, uot be?
cause of greediness for political power, but
because in no other way is there any hope
of establishing those kindly relations be?
tween the two race3, without which neither
blacks uor whites can expect to obtain a
peaceful, just and frugal State Government.
The miserable crew who, trading upon the
political capital of better and purer men,
rained the confidence of the negroes, and
lave made the State Government a sink of ]
incleanness and corruption, succeeded in
ausing the masses of the freedmen to re
;ard every honest white man as their ene
?y. Sad experience bas shown to thous
nds of the newly enfranchised race the folly
f trusting to the promises of a horde of needy
dveuturers; but other thousands still re
arded Scott and bis lieutenants as their
olitical saviours, and were encouraged to
ersist in their fatal error by the silence and
pathy of the whites. In tbe meanwhile the
ondition of the State wa3 going from bad to
rorse. and it was ouly too evident that, un
233 the majority of the whites and the ma
ninty of the blacks would unite in an effort
o secure an honest State Government, it
rould soon be impossible for any citizen of
South Carolina to improve his condition,
?ven if the tax-gatherer allowed him to re
ain the little property he already possessed.
The whites alone could not change the gov
irnment. Under the guidance of the Scott
fling, there was no prospect that the blacks
vould choose better men to represent them
md us. The only chance was in a union
or the one purpose^f reforming the State
Joverument, and the first step towards it
vas the declaration of principles made by
he Press Conference, and, at a later day, by
he Union Reform Convention. In thatcon
.ention the whites buried the hatchet. They
?onceded to the colored people all that they
ilaimpd, and they have stood squarely up to
heir every declaration. A generous feeling
?used the whites to go even farther than it
vas necessary to go. They were determin
id to prove that they had no after-thought,
io ingenious plan for cozening the colored
people, Radical fashion, out of the fruits of |
:heir labor. In this way, an earnest effort is
making to,convince the colored people that
it is to their interest to vole with the respect?
able white people of the State. This is doue
in good faith, and, if the eil'ort fail, there is
little reason for believing that the white and
black races in South Carolina can continue
to live together in amity and peace. The
whites have gone as far as they can go; and,
if the blacks uow reject the honest hands
which are extended to them, they will not be
troubled again in a hurry with proposals to
ally themselves politically with the great
party of justice, moderation and peace.
Promise and Performance.
The difference betweeD Radical promise
aud Radical performance is so great that it
ian only be appreciated, in its full force, by
tbe unfortunate freedmen who expected to
snjoy every comfort of life, and have really
received nothing but ill treatment and ne?
glect Wheu DeLarge, Elliott, Wright,
Whipper, and a few others are counted out,
it is hard to find a single colored man who
?3 one whit better oft* to-day than he was
tvheu he helped tu elect R. K. Scott as Gov
?mor of South Carolina. Then, the future of
the colored men was all rose-color. Visions
of broad acres, of fat mules, of peaceful
hearths and happy homes, filled their sight
and made their hearts light and gay. How
is it now ? Two years have passed, and not
one of 'heir promises have the Radicals kept.
They have given money, or place, to the col?
ored mea who boasted that they could lead
their brethren by the nose, but they have
done nothing for the colored people in gene?
ral. Yes ! they have so increased taxation
that trade languishes, aud the wages of the
poor man are cut down to enable his employ?
er to make tongue and buckle meet. And
the queerest pa?t of Hie whole dirty business
?3, that the notorious promise-breakers of
the Scott Ring accuse the Reformers of
treachery and bad faith ! The Ring judge
others by themselves; thi3 is the whole
No member of the Riug can point out any
instance in which the Reform party have
broken a promise made to' the freedmen.
These have been represented by men of their
own race upon every committee and in every
meeting, and in the counties where the
whites hare a large voling majority, colored
men, a3 well as whites, have been nominat?
ed for public office. What is, then, the dif?
ference between the Ring and the Reform
party? The former has kept no promise
which it has made; the latter has made no
promue which it has not kept. Thia iff the
whole stoiw in a nutshell. The Ring are
judged by what they have done; and; the
Ring, themselves convicted of unparalleled
fraud and deception, judge the Reformer? by
what they, the Ring, have done, and will
certainly do again if a ghost of a chance bc
given them. Put record against record! And
remember that the only charges against the
Reformers come from the Scott Ring, who
have gulled and cheated the colored people,
who have brought the State to the verge of
ruin, who are now fighting to avoid the
sad necessity of going out of the State or into
THC Coveted Senatorship.
Judge Orr prints a letter in the Columbia
Phoenix, la which he says, (1.) that he has
"never had any conference with Governor
"Scott or any other Republican, directly or
"indirecty, with reference to the senatorial
"election;" and, (2,) that he "ha3 not been,
"is not now, and will not be, a candidate for
"the United State3 Senate at the approach?
ing session of the Legislature." The coy?
ness of old stagers in political campaigns is
something like the protestations of the fair
Julia, who, "vowing she would ne'er consent,
"consented," and Judge Orr knows well
enough that his refusal to be a candidate
would not prevent him from serving if he
were elected. The smiling Colfax aunounce3
his final retirement from public life, and it is
shrewdly guessed that he is, therefore, a
candidate for the White House in 1872. A
similar strategy probably directs the decla?
rations of James L. Orr-unless that astute
political tumbler has come to the conclusion
that, under no possible circumstances, can
he attain, through the South Carolina Legis?
lature, the goal of his desires.

-The Radicals had a meeting at Abbeville

of it Tho Abbeville Press says: "The meet?
ing, we think, was not a success. In fact, we
would Uko to see another of the same sort. A
few more like lt, we think, would kill the par?
ty here. Judge H?ge congratulated his hear?
ers upon the patriotic zeal which had Induced
them to leave the workshop and the corn field
at the call of dHty; but why did one half ot
the crowd remain in the public square ? We
would like to see a Utile more ot the same sort
of Republican enthusiasm. We may thea look
for a groat Conservative victory."
-The Lancaster Ledger says that in Lancas?

GREAT REDUCTION IN PRICES.
QUALITY STILL FURTHER IMPROVED.
We beg leave respectfully to eau the attention
of the public to our Supenor 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
bato a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a elty or town of any note ta the
country Into whlcn they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally Increasing demand L't owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have attn further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a h val. Our Vao?la
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It is a strictly pure an* high?
ly concentrated Extract of Vant- Bsans. In
short, we think lt the best thal is made, at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges in -.Licoun?
try. We don't pretend to compete in price with
mar>y of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the
day. which are really but worthless compounds,
undeserving of the name.
