Well Done, Charleston !
The election is over, and the result of t
contest, though still veiled from o ur gaze,
at last fixed. Many days must pass befo
we eau hear enough from all sections
the State to enable us to judge,'with ev
approximate accuracy, of the measure
success which has crowned our campaig
As yet; we may riot speak of how the stur
yeomanry of the mountains have bor
j themselves id the crisis of the straggle, n
yet of the gallant fight marie by the Refori
ors of tho seaboard, north and south of c
against overwhelming odds; but th ls Wees
say, and wc say it with pride and pleasar
-that, whatever the result may be, the City
Charleston has dono her whole duty. Nev
before have her people shown so deep ar
so active an interest in any election'.' Tl
day was absolutely given up by all classes I
patriotic effort. Silence reigned along tl
the wharves and in the marls of the ba,
and the grimy workshops of the artisan, ac
the gay bazaars ot King street, were alii
closed. The citizens of every age and i
all conditions in life worked nobly from earl
mora till the closing of the polls, and,
the battle be not won, it-,will not have bee
the fault of this good old city.
This paper, as ocr readers know, has no
hesitated to sound a warning when it sai
the community plunged in o perilous polit
cal torpor, and it now gladly bears testi
mony to the fact that Charleston bas richi;
earned the "Well Done!" of the people o
the whole SUte.
To the outside public a heated politics
contest is the source of infinite amusement
A few serious souls remember that their bat
tie is fighting, whether they laud or condemi
the plan of the campaign. But the .many
'mouthed reading public Und ia tho thrust
and parries of political disputants only tb
thrilling excitement of a railroad. ho!ocau3
or wholesale . murder, with the ? a?dicioaa
advantage that uo one of the combatants h
likely to be seriously hurt. The stage i<
heaped up with slain, but when tho curtail
falls the defunct heroes spring to their feet,
. and Macbeth and McDuff, Franchi and
Chateau Renaud, goody youth and hardened
scoundrel, quail the flowing bowl together.
This is what the public Lhink of it. They
.forget that men have eyes and ears and
hearts and immortal souls, whether they
strut upon the mimic stage or tread the
broader boards of public political life.
The public/inust bc amused. Their favo?
rite paper, whether it be the Morning Toma
hawk or Tlie Evening Slop Tub, must give
them a liberal allowance of biting scarca3m
or ingenious denunciation. They demand
-brilliancy by the yard and invective by the
iineal mile, or complain that they don't get
the worth of their money. Jone3 may be as.
saulted with -a; fifteen-inch Colambiad;
Brown may be lampooned until he becomes
black in the face; Robinson may bring the
scattering hairs of his aged maternal parent
ia sorrow to the grave. But it is all fun for
the public-sport for the boys aud death-ta
the frogs. Effervescence and Ebullition arel'
as they take it, the normal state of the poli?
tical journalist. Upon : the .principle that
eels, when the operation is often enough re?
peated, rather like the process of skinning,
it. is assumed that every "anopyrnoua scrib?
bler" takes kindly, to hot water, and hacT.
rather ber flayed and grilled by a haughty :
I Tival than live In quietness and peace.
These are the flattering conclusion's to
which the public jump, and K is perhaps
useless to suggest that journalists do some?
times feel what they say, and think -what
they write. This is strange, isn't it ? - And
yet it-is the truth. It becomes tbe duty of
the journalist to defend the true and assail
the false, to expose corruption and honor,
official integrity, to protect the weak from
imposition, and defend public. and. private
right. And the more earnest, the more con?
scientious, and the more unselfish the jour?
nalist-the more enemies must he make, and
the less will be his reward. Every man who
is, of necessity, attacked by the indepen?
dent journalist becomes an unrelenting
enemy, and the public whom the journalist
serves would not wag a little finger to save |
him from contumely and misfortune. The
hostility of the men whose rascality is
bronght to light is certain and enduring;
while the. public, who require that this be
done, have not a word of thanks to waste
upon those whose fault is their fidelity to
the interests of the people.
Some there are whose aim in life it is to
perch upon the fence. Others run with the
hare and hold with the hounds. Both take
color from what they feed on. But for the
journalist who bas opinions of his own, and
is not afraid to express them, the road is
rongh and the goal distressingly uncertain.
So be it. The journalistic Ter?um Quid
will one day pall on the popular palate, and,
if not, there is still a blessed band who vene?
rate the man
-.whose doctrine, and whose life,
Coincident exhibit lucid proof ...
That he ls honest in the sacred eau se.

pp. 312. Price 52.
' It is no small pleasure to welcome to the
company, ?'fit though few," or American
poets a woman, Southern born and bred,
who may justly and fearlessly take her place
in the foremost ranks, at least, of the sweet
singera of the New World. Mrs. Preston
hos clearly evinced in ber literary history
the rare quality of growth. Uer present
book is so far in advance of anything she
had previously written, as to warrant us, for
even this comparative reason, in according
it a warm welcome. Bat this volume is not
only an improvement, it is a very positive
and vital achievement. We do not know
a single volume of American verses which
excels it ia rhythmic melody, in concentra?
tion of expression, in felicitous simplicity
and purity of diction. If her thought ie not
very profound, it is at any rate fresh and
vigorous, and it never ontruns nor logs be?
hind her utterance. Whenever she speaks,
3he has something to say, and she says it
gracefully and welL Her greatest success is
achieved in her ballads, which fulfil VJ ry
nearly all the requisites of that difficult form
of verse, and some of which are very highly
artistic. She seems generally to avoid the
temptation (very rarely escaped by the few
balladists which late years have produced)
of stepping aside from the dominant idea of
the lay, to say something only remotely con?
nected with that idea. Her ballads embody
one thought, or incident, or action, and are
faithful to that. The setting in which she
clothes it is the simplest and most trans?
parent possible. In this she has excelled a
poet whose influence is vary perceptible in
her writings, and whom we imagine she
must have carefully studiei-we mean
Mrs. Browning. Mrs. Preston is not per?
haps troubled with the wealth of thought
which was to her great predecessor an
embarras des richesses, and which, while it
renders every poem of Mrs. Browning's a
mine of suggestion, interferes frequently
with the dramatic unity and simplicity of
her finest ballads. As a striking example of
Mrs. Preston's restraint and fidelity to the
true spirit or the ballad, we would mention
"Lady Hildegarde's Wedding," which is, we
think, nearly perfect in its way. In her'
strictly dramatic attempts, we do not think
Mrs. Preston quite as successful as in- her
lyric poems. Her genius is tender, thought?
ful, sweet, anything rather than strong or,
perhaps, profound. Her sonnets also are
open to criticism as sonnets, though not
without very great merit of their own. As
an. example of very striking compression
and artistic truth, we cannot help referring
to the six irregular poems called, "The Royal
"Preacher," which are a versification, singu?
larly succe63ful, we think, of the la3t chapter
of Ecclesiastes. In brief, we arc sure that
any of our readers who may purchase Mrs.
Preston's book because it is the work of a
Southern author, will soon learn to love and
value lt for a higher and deeper reason-for
the rteason that in its every page they will
