the event, and now the ancient city becomes t(

-It will be remembered that some months | ti
ago two ships, the Uncowah and Olllvler,
which had been loaded with kidnapped coolies | tl
at the Portuguese barracoons in Macao, China,
bound for Callao, were fired by the wretched
captives and both ships destroyed. A portion
of the living freight, limbering 270 unfortu?
nates, was, however,, secured, and shipped
from the Dutch port of Batavia, on the French
bark Bernica, for their original destination.
By latest Callao dates we learn that the bark
had arrived with 220 coolies 'alive out of the | L
270 with which she sailed from Batavia.
Fifty-or one in every five-had died on the
passage. This fact sufficiently tells tho mise?
rable story of suffering and outrage to which ? .
the coolies were subjected on the passage.
-Two young ladles,daughters of a Mr. James
Williams, of Frankfort,- Perry County, UL,
aged respectively sixteen and eighteen years, j 1
and said to be modest and retiring in their
manners, have lately developed Into a clear | i
case of witchcraft, which has baffled the neigh?
bors and hundreds of v*itors, including two
physicians, In their efforts to solve the mystery
of their condition. These young persons be?
have well enough during the day, but when
night supervenes they go to the housetops,
and there occupy their time in gymnastics and
in uttering deafening screeches, besides be?
coming rigid. A local newspaper says that on
these occasions they "gyrate on the comb with
perfect ease and Impunity, uttering at the
same time the most hideous and frenzied
screams." The young ladies, on recovering,
devour files until they are compelled to cease
from nausea. In their moments of paroxysm
they accuse an old lady of the neighborhood
of having bewitched them.
-The New York papers give the follow Inr;
dlscrlptlon of the sudden death of ex Judge
Bell, to which reference bas already been made
in THE NEWS : "The trustees of the Episcopal
General Theological Seminary held a most ex?
citing secret session, marked with a tragic
episode, at the Institution In West Twentieth
street, on Thursday evening. Bishop Little?
john, ol Long Island, presided, and Bishop At?
kinson, ot North Carolina, called the mention
of the meeting to a pamphlet which has been
written and circulated by Professor Seymour,
one of the lac ul ty of the seminary, which con?
tained serious charges against Dr. Forbes,
who it is well known, has returned to the
Episcopal from the Roman faith. Among other
grave charges made are that Dr. Forbes keeps j
aloof frot?, and does not know or care to know
the students, ami 'that he does not attend i
prayers as often as twice a week. Besides at-i
tacking bis efficiency, his learning and general'
conduct axe.assailed. Bishop Atkinson mored
that a committee be appointed to i vest i gate
these charges,but upon motion of another trus?
t?e, the whole matter was laid upon the table.
Dr. Forbes appeared to Interpret this action
as a tacit admission of belief in the assertions
made against him in the pamphlet, and he
immediately tendered his resignation and left
the roora in a condition of great excitement.
A scene of confusion followed, - several mem?
bers endeavoring to speak upon the subject
at the same time, some of them sustaining
the conduct of Dr. Forbes, while others took
decided exception to his couree. Ex-Judge
Bell, one . of the trustees, finally obtained the
Boor andwa8 speaking with great earnest?
ness upon the subject when be suddenly
stopped, and putting his hand to his breast
with an expression of pain, fell to the -floor.
The others gathering around him, it was
lound that he was dead, having been attacked
with heart disease, to which he had been sub
iect for some time. This tragic affair brought
:he meeting to an abrupt close. Judge Bell
Decupled a seat on the bench in this city
about thirty years ago, and was in the seven?
tieth year of his age at the time of his death.
Se practiced law in connection with his son,
3. B. Bell, and was very prominent In all mat?
ters affecting the Episcopal Chur ch."
General Wagener for Mayor.
The Convention of Delegates represent?
ing the citizens of the various Wards met
last evening, and with an unanimity, as
?ratifying as it is remarkable, nominated
General John A. Wagener for Mayor of(
The choice is one that must meet the cor
lial approbation and enlist the earnest and
tctive support of every citizen who has at
aeart the future welfare of the city. General
r7agener is a man thoroughly identified with
.he interests of Charleston, having shared
1er fortune in joy and in sorrow, for nearly
brty years. It was his active mind that
irst shaped the German element of our com
nunity into a living organism. His untiring
inergy wa3 largely, if not mainly, instru
nental in the establishment of every Ger
nan society in this city. Whether it was
he building of a church, the founding of a
ire engine company, the establishment of a
irle club, the formation ol an insurance
lompany, the publication of a German jour
tal-Wagener was the great organizer. We
.li remember his brilliant military record
luring the war as Colonel of Artillery, in
ecognition of which he received from his
allow-citizens the successive and flattering
ippointments of Brigadier-General of the
lilitia, member of the Constitutional Con
entiori of 1865 and of the Legislature of
S66, and Commissioner of Immigration.
I?3 character combines all the elements
Men the Chief Magistrate of a city like
Charleston should possess. Conservative,
.3 to all that ought to be retained, ho is yef
minently progressive; patriotic, pare and
lignilied, he is at once a man of sound judg.
lent and tried nerve. His nomination for
lie Mayoralty by a Convention ropresentiu?
ll classes and interests of the community is
ideed a high and crowning compliment
ot merely to his merits, but also- to bis
opularity and strength. For, this time, the J i
itizens cf Charleston are go-ng in to win. |!
In a ri-wick inn Sense.
A beautiful instance of the utter hollow
ess of the pretended efforts in the direction
f reform, which we see heralded, from time
> time, with a loud flourish of trumpets in
the Party" organs, has just come lo light. A
!W weeks ago an indignant communication
as addressed to Governor Scott by Mr. E. B.
aabrook, the Acting Solicitor of the Charles
m Circuit, complaining or "a very great
evil in the Trial Justice system-at least in
Charleston," anU appearing to the Gover
or to assist in applying an effectual remedy,
'he Acting Solicitor, under date of May 29,
ills the Governor:
"Justices in this city do quite a business as
ttorneys in each other's offices, and this is
iie cause of a great deal of quarreling and
rrangllog among themselves, tending to bring
he whole machinery ot justice into contempt,
nd also o? much injustice to parties litigant/'
Trial Justice John G. Mackey, smarting
nder this damaging charge, writes on the
d instant to the Solicitor, repelling -the ac
usution, in his own behalf, and very prop
rly demanding, as a matter of justice to the
nnocent, that the guilty Trial Justices should
te.tlcsignated by name and removed. Hero
vas a chance to do the community a practi
:al service. But it might make some dan?
gerous enemies for the Party-and notably
or some of the Party's hangers-on. So the
Solicitor, under date of the 5lh instant,
lootbing the lacerated feelings of Trial Jus
,ice Mackey by the a'3urance of his distin?
guished consideration, diplomatically io
fers?s him :
"I rru<ie no charges against the Trial Justi?
ces either as individuals or as a clas3. I simply
sommented on a pernicious custom."
The Trial Justices, either as a class oras
individuals, be it understood, are in no wise
to blame. It was "the System" alone that
was in fault. Systems have no votes and no
particular friends, and n:uy (happy thought !)
be belabored with impunity. Argot, "the
"System" may expect to catch it. Mean?
time, we trust that Governor Scott, and the
Atlorney-General, and the high-toned and
sensitive Custodians o? the Peace, and the
great wondering Public wiii receive with all
due gratitude and natisfaction Lie official
endorsement of our Trial Justices, so con?
sistently and (iisin^i-stedly given.
Llbevtv TIS. Federal Unity. |
The New lori: Wc rid approves Mr. Ste
phens's purpose Lo uecome an editor, aud
pays bim a warm tribute in its article on the
subject. Adhering still to the opinion which
we have already expressed, we must never?
theless acknowledge our grateful wonder at
the following paragraph in the World's edi?
tor: 1 on Mr. Stephens:
"Keener weapons, brighter with use than
those Mr. Stephens wields, no man will bring
to the field where more and what is of more
<.ir??~uence Hon all we wo? 'ct Appomattox
will be the prize of victory. T?e Federal unity
is worth all it cost; brit THAT STOL OP LIBERTY
-is PRICELESS, which it was formed and con
stunted to guard/'
Can it be possible that these'wortls, in
Which the truth is so concisely and so happi?
ly embodied, were written in the office of a
newspaper the inspiration of which, during
the war, was derived not from "that soul of
"libfety," but wholly from the money-bags Of
Wall street ? We are tempted to doubt it.
We are hali inclined to believe that the arti?
cle wea penned at the South by some disci?
ple of Mr. Stephens. But it bas received
the sanction of the World, and out of pure
gratitude to that paper we are ready to take
back every one of the many hard thoughts
which we have entertained in regard to it as
the orge? of the' war Democrats. Nay, we
go further. Mach as we have detested that
loathsome nondescript and monster-the
war Democrat-we now catch a glimpse, in
tbe~Bentences we have quoted, of what may
have been a high and pure motive at bottom
of the inexplicable conduct of this same
monster. It is this: The war Democrat j
loved the Union, not for itself as an entity
loveable in its very nature, but for "the lib
"erty it was formed and constituted to
"guard." A divided Union necessitated mili?
tary power to protect, the sundered parts
from mutual encroachments. The bare possi?
bility of such encroachments would hav91
compelled each section to maintain Btand-1
ing armies, in presence of which liberty
would not be and could not be maintained.
To be sure this was all along the war Dem?
ocrat's excuse, and all alODg we thought ita 1
mere excuse. Now we are almost willing to
admit thal it was something more, and that
we have done injustice to the war Demo?
crat. At all events, the truth, yea the
whole truth, appears to have dawned upon
him at last. To him, as to the peace Demo?
crat, and to the Southern man of whatever
party, "liberty" is now the one "priceless" j
thing, and "Federal unity," though it be
worth oceans of blood, is of little value com?
pared to that liberty.
This is the vital, this the essential princi?
ple. For this principle the South fought.
The form of our Government was nothing;
the "soul of liberty" which had been in it,
but had gone out of it ia .1860, was every?
thing. For that soul of liberty we contend
now as we have always contended. We did
not believe that liberty was either begotten
by coercion or could be prolonged in life by
it. War Democrats believed differently. The j
appeal to arms bas been made, coercion has
been tried, and their result is known of all
men. Ia the fuce o! that result, the organ
of the war Democracy feels now that Fede?
ral unity ls of secondary importance, com?
pared with liberty. It sees dimly what was
plain to the men of the Revolution, and even
clearly present to the eyes of Southern men,
that like begets like, and that liberty is born
of liberty alone. It will yet live to admit,
what it would vehemently deny to-day, that
the incorporation into the Constitution of
that very right for which the South vainly
contended, would constitute "that soal of
"liberty" for which the Federal Union was
formed, end do more to preserve Federal
unity than ali amendments and supplement?
ary bills of enforcement which the combined
ingenuity of cowardice and tyranny could in
a lifetime devise.
The World 6aye truly that the prize of
victory in the coming Presidential campaign
"is of more consequence than ail we won at
"Appomattox." If that bo so [as who can
:loubt?] and the monetary power which tho
World-represents be sincere in the convic?
tion that unity is worth much, but liberty is
ibsolute'y "priceless," then we of the South
strike hands with the World's party in
warmth and good faith, of which a zeal
should be born too powerful for Radical per
Jdy to contend with, and from which to
jredica'.e success in 1872 were simple super?
erogation. . _
Grant undi Civil Service Reform.
It has been stated that the Civil Service
Commission, lately convened in Washington,
?vould find no difficulty In perfecting rules and
regulations for the civil servite if it were not
or the all-obtruding question of politics and
natronage. Il this commission, however, will
refer to the last annual message oi the Pr?v?
ient, they will find that his words support
.hem almost to any limit in their mission. It
should not be forgotten that he said that,
"always favoring practical reforms, there. ls
rjne abuse-the civil service"-which he
"wanted to Bee remedied." "I would have lt
go beyond," he then said, "the mere fixing of
the tenure o? office ot clerks and employees
who do not require the advice and con?
sent of the Senate to make their appoint?
ments complete. I would have It govern not
the tenure, but the manner of making all ap?
pointments. There ?3 no duty which so much
embarrasses the Executive as that of making
appointments; nor is there any such arduous
and thankless labor imposed upon senators
and representatives as that of Anding places
for constituents. The preseut system does
not secure the best men, and not even fit men,
for public places. The elevation and purifica?
tion of the civil service of the government
will bc hailed with approval by the whole
people oi the United States." Thus spoke the
President on the 5th of last December. The
civil service commission certainly need no
more authoritative endorsement.
