-A Washington telegram of Thursday, to

amounting practically to oonflsoatlon, it is

Against four hundred and eighty registered,
the present number, a decrease of 71 per cent.
The report presented other statistics, showing
that by placing this unfortunate class of wo?
men under the restriction and control of the
law, something can be done towards amelio?
rating the crime. It seems repulsive, as lt
were, to legalize vice, but taking the purely
practical and common-sense view, BL Louis
appears to have gained by the operation.

there are unfavorable accounts of mischief
done to the crops by the remarkable fluctua?

on the continent, is likely to advance in price,
and this will stiffen the demand for bread

a rising market Russia alone seems to hu v*

-Foreign mail advices contain much of in
terest regarding the presence ol Napoleon in
.England. The London Times cont>*asts his
. greeting at Dover with Emperor Wilh?lm's re?
ception In Berlin, and says that while the be?
havior of the Be ri in ese did credit to the nation
and its deep purpose and thoughtful estimate
of facts, the popular demonstration at Dover
implied ah effusive and unqualified admiration.
For six months Louis Napoleon '"has been
treated as the scapegoat in a great national ca
lamlty. The French sympathizers in this coun?
try, conscious of the weakness of the French
cause, visited all Its faults on the ex-Emperor's
head. They were never weary of stigmatizing
and denouncing the detestable results of 'dy?
nastic' Ambition. Yet here, when the latest,
and probably nor the last, of these results is
revealing itself In the prospect of civil war,
they surround this very man with passionate
acclamations o? sympathy and honor, and give
to bim and his 'dynasty' a more enthusiastic
.demonstration of welcome than was accorded
to the Emperor of Germany at Berlin."
-The Washington Patriot says : "The Presi
dent's proclamation in regard to South Caro
lina was issued without notice to or consulta
Uon of any kind with the senators or rep re.
sentatives from that State, although -they are
all of his party. And there is reason to doubt
whether the lorms required by the constitu
tion were complied with at all. If Governor
Scott made the 'application,' which is a con
dltion precedent to the Interposition of Fed?
eral authority, there ls no known record of
lt. Individuals came to Washington yester?
day to speak .In the Governor's name, but
with no certified authority, and without any
sufficient Investigation the President under?
took to brand the character of a sovereign
State. It is now certain that he was induced
to take steps more for effect in the North lhan
for any real or supposed reason in South Caro?
lina. It lormed a part of the conspiracy to
excite the agi talion concocted by Morton and
Butler, which has raged for the last few weeks
.in both braueheg of Congress. Wnen gentle?
men of the highest character from the district
in South Carolina of the alleged disorders have
called upon the President to explain to him
the real facia and to expose the errors into
which he had been misled, he exhibited no
willingness to hear the truth or to recede from
his harsh action."
-The Pall Mall Gazette is curious enough to
inquire as to the possibility of Paris getting on
without the German population, which they
propose to taboo. For instance, there are
many avocations in daily life in -which the
Germans are generally known to be proficient.
These occur mainly among the trades and
skilful riiecbAoiofi employments, although
there ara other pureuita exacting professional
ability in various directions In which the Geri
mans may almost be said to be sui generis.
To come to the tradespeople and servant
class, there are the waiters, the oarers,
the shoemakers, the tailors, the makers of
scientific instruments-ia all of which em?
p?oymenta the Germans take the lead.
Paris cannot but miss these elements of
her population, and in so doing she will
be deprived o? the best workers in these
callings. Then, too, as regards musicians
not to mention composers-her theatrical or?
chestras, her brass bands, and her system of
teachers of music, must inevitably suffer and
languish with the absence ol the proficient
Teutons. On the whole, the question gravely
recurs whether Paris will not have some diffi?
culty in replacing these rejected members of
the German nationalities. How to.reconcile
the apparent determination of the people to
give no employment to any German, with the
other apparent alternative of dispensing with
the many products of German skill and Ger?
man accomplishments, is almost ai? serious a
question, and one requiring quite R3 much del?
icate consideration as that which now stares M.
Thiers in the face In his current solution ot the
Insurrectionary movement in Montmartre.
Lieutenant.Governor Rangier a ?( n the
Lieutenant-Governor Ransier, one of the
most intelligent native colored men now
holding office under the State Government,
has printed a series of articles, in which he
endeavors, with apparent earnestness, to
point ont a practicable remedy for the evils
which oppress the white people of the State.
It is his ostensible desire to bring the whites
and blacks together; so that they may feel
that they have many interests in common,
and may work together for the public good.
He does not believe that the white minority
can obtain, by force, any valuable conces?
sions from the black majority; nor does he
believe that the latter will consent to any
constitutional change which would, by
limiting the suffrage, as in Massachusetts,
deprive the greater number of their people
of the right to vote. This, we take it, is Mr.
Ransier's general position, and it is due to
him to say that his opinions are, for the
most part, expressed with commendable
moderation. Directness and precision of
statement are wanting, and there is an
occasional flippancy of expression which is
out of place in writing upon so grave a
subject as the present condition of South
Carolina. But, upon the whole, Mr. Ran?
sier writes with a discreet reserve, which
might be imitated with profit by more tban
one of his white associates in political life,
j Mr. Ransier sees in an attempt to block
the wheels of government by refusing to
pay taxes, and ia the effort to limit the suf?
frage, nothing more tban new causes of
! anger and discontent. It must be remem?
bered, however, that he belongs to the
party in power, and to the temporarily
dominant race, and that he naturally looks
with suspicion and dislike upon any policy
whose inevitable effect, if it could be carried
out, would be to reduce himself and his
colleagues to their original insignificance,
and bis race to a votiug minority. Nor can
be know, or understand, the feeling of the
whites. Thia is painfully evident when he
asks if the people pf. South Carolina have
lost so much of their .-"independence, intelli
"gence, manhood and State pride," that
they woulikbe^ the- Federal Government to
take charge of the affairs of the State. Of
independence, we have none ; wa'are under
the heel of the exultant negro. The intelli
gence of the whites is at the mercy of the
blacks, and only enables the superior'race
to feel with keener pain the humiliation of
their position. Manhood cannot serve us, un?
less in enabling this people to scrape a few
dollars together for the benelit of Mr. Ran?
sleys party. And what earthly State pride
can any South Carolinian have in a Common?
weal th-whose despotic rulers are'whites bf
the stamp of Crews and Hurley, and blacks
litre Mobley and Elliott? .We confess that
wfr??o not prefer the rule -of the bayonet tb
the reign of civil law. But a military occu?
pation, supplanting and superseding the
present State Government, would give this
whple.people justice and peace. It would
put an end to iegisl?t?ve orgies and official
corruption. It would limit extravagance
and theft. It would make property secure,
and reduce the volume of taxation. These,
as long as they lasted, would be positive
gains. The white people of the State, as
far os we know, would gladly welcome the
conversion of South Carolina into a military
satrapy. But we fear that this door of es?
cape is firmly closed. The so-called civil
government is likely to stand. How can we
make the best of it, strip Radicalism of its
most disgusting features, and save the people
The only remedy suggested by Mr. Ran?
sier is explained in the following passages
of his concluding article :
"Let the leading men of both the white and
colored race come together in convention, say
each chose one ot their own from each county
in the State. Let them meet calmly, discuss
the situation, and determine what ls best to be
done as to matters of taxation, and tbe gene?
ral policy of the administration. In thc first
place, let them ask of the administration, in
view of the high rate of taxation this year,
(or for 1870) the postponement of the collec?
tion of the taixes for 1871, which, under the
amended act, would occur next November,
thus bringing the collection of taxes for 1870
and 1S71 within six months or so ol each
other, which Is of vital moment to both classes
and all conditions ol our people. In Hie sec?
ond place, let them ask o? the Governor ( who
appreciates the situation) a certified statement
of the public debt up to the latest possible
moment, and Invite him and other officers
having-the Immediate control of our finances
to give their opinion as to our financial con?
dition, where benefit is to be derived from the
sterling fund act to the State, and as to other
matters as may be calculated to Inspire eonfl
dence in our securities, and thus satisfy those
of our moneyed men?t home and abroad, and
give such other guarantees as will secure
confidence In the ability aud willingness of
the administration to protect life and property
iu the State. Ia thc third plaee, let them
consider the militia organizations, propose
such amendments to the militia law as may be
deemed advisable, and recommend upon all
other matters-the powers and dulles o? coun?
ty commissioners, &c, as in their wi3dom may
seem to call for amendments, corrections, ftc.
Some such thing will, in my humble judgment,
accomplish moro substantial good than a con?
viction of "taxpayers," or ot the whites ex?
clusively, or any of the many plans suggested;
and I most respectfully ask my white and
colored friends, and the people ol both classes,
to consider these suggestions, which do not
involve the political opinions o? any one, or
necessarily-des troy the organization, of one or
the^ther r?Htlcarparty.'' ~. '
The reasons, why such a Con ven ti on can?
not, with advantage, beheld at this time, are
very plain. Already the different counties
are acting apon the recommendations of the
Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade,
of ?rte city, and are electing their delegates
to the Convention of Taxpayers, which will
meet in Columbia in May. The most press?
ing grievances of the people are those con?
nected with Debt and Taxation. These, in
their direct action, affect the property-hold?
ers alone. And ninety-nine one-hundredths
of the property in the State is held by while
men. It waa advised, therefore, that the
properiy-holders, ? e. the taxpayers, should
take counsel together, and endeavor to find
a way out of the difficulties which aurroond
them. To change thia Convention into a
Convention of "leading men of both the
"white and colored race," would, in out
judgment, make the whole affair a failure.
There would be talking and apeech-makiog,
but no business-like handling of the ques?
tions which moat concern the people. In?
stead of a meeting of property-holders and
taxpayers, we should have a political can?
We do, however, think it highly impor?
tant that the May Convention should take
up two, at least, of the auggeBtions con-,
tained in Mr. Ranaier's letter. The Conven?
tion may with perfect propriety invite the
Governor to postpone the collection of the
tax of 1871 until the usual time-March,
1872. Thia should be pressed upon the Ex?
ecutive at once, and his reply will determine
the next step to be taken.. It ia equally
necessary to obtain a statement of all the
outstanding liabilities of the State. We
believe that the people are willing to pay
the debt reported by the Comptroller-Gen?
eral in his last report, and by Governor
Scott in his lost message, t e. something
funder eight million dollars. But we do not
believe this people so crazy as to bind them?
selves to pay whatever supplemental millions
of obligations may be kicking about in Wall
street. Nor do we believe that they will pay
the millions or railroad guaranteed booda
now thrust upon the State. When the taxpay?
ers know what the debt is, they can tell what
the taxpayers are ready to guarantee, and
are prepared to accept aa morally and
legally binding upon them. We go further,
and say that we think it eminently proper
that the May Convention should consider
the propriety of advising the call of such a
mixed Convention aa ia recommended by
Mr. Ransier. The Convention can discuss
the matter calmly and soberly, and, by its
decisiion, moat persona will be ready to
: Time will ahow whether Mr. Banaler ia
sincere in his profesaiona of charity and
good-will. We hope that he is, and are in?
clined to believe it. But having the past
conduct of the Radical leaders as a warning
and guide, we are disposed to think that
there would not have been, in Radical cir?
cles, ao sudden a shout for Reform had it
not been evident that the whites, throughout
the State, are terribly in earnest lu their det
termination to obtain, by hook or by crook,'
mor; aecarity and less taxation. Sixty
thousand white men, acting together, are a
power which even ninety thousand negroea
cannot afford to despise. Is this the whole
secret ? _
The Reinterment of John C. Calhoun.
The remaba of John C. Calhoun were ex?
humed on Saturday morning, and replaced
in the vault where they originally reposed.
It will be remembered, by a chosen few
that, on the night preceding the evacuation of
Morris Island by the Confederate forces, the
boDesof Oalhoun were taken from their
vault, for obvioua reasons, and were laid in
St.'Philip's Churchyard, to the east of the
venerable church. There the remains of our
greatest statesman have rested in peace
during these six eventful years.
The Rector, assistant Rector and the
Vestrymen of St. Philip's .were present at
the disinterment, and.folio wed the coffin as
it was borne to the old vault, west of the
church. It was" iudeed a aolemu scene.
While all else is troubled and sad, tho
mighty spirit of Calhoun stalks abroad, and
his dust, its wanderings over, is laid for aye
in the humble, Bilent grave-laid rn the
bosom of that Carolina which her wisest son
loved so long and well.
THE Columbia Phoenix says that the docu?
ment 8tyled "The Constitution of the Coun
"cil of Safety for South Carolina" was
printed in its job office, and that its connec?
tion with the matter began and ended there.
The Taxpayer's Convention.
The call for the May Convention of Taxpay?
ers Is attracting general attention, and numer?
ous meetings are about to be held to consider
the propriety of sending delegates. The citi?
zens of Orangeburg, Clarendon. Oconee.
Onion and Barnwell will hold meetings on
