-The explosion ot two hundred kegs ot
powder some miles from Wilmington, Del., on
the 9.h instant, which was universally sup?
posed to have been an earthquake throughout
an area of many miles, produced so severe a
concussion at the above-named city that chim?
neys were thrown down, windows broken,
and the wails of two new houses were serious?
ly cracked. .

-The New York Tribune thinks it would be
'.calamitous" for Republicans to mistake the
meaning of the late election in Texas. That
meaning, according to the Tribune, is that
"Texas has decided that she chooses to be

future than in the Immediate past," and lt
adds that Republicans "may yet win If lt can

men, theologians, poets and artists all first in
rank, and that religion was tree; and con?
cludes with begging all to pray that God will
dispel the temporary cloud ot sadness which
overshadows the Church at Rome.
-A comprehensive resume of the condition
* of the crops In Europe and the harvest returns
shows that in England the winter prospect is
not a cheerful one, and the losses sustained by
stock-raisers supplement those ot short "rops
and the spread ot the potato disease. The re?
turns from other parts ol Europe are more en?
couraging, but the general impression, deriv?
ed from a review of the whole tiela, is much
less favorable than that which was formed
from a review of our own harvest fields, pub?
lished a few weeks since. Indeed, compared
with the condition of American breadstuff mar?
kets, those of Great Britain and many parts of
Europe are in a straightened condition; and
this fact, added to the appreciation of prices,
ls sure lo follow the destruction of Chicago.
-French newspaper gossip mjfteriously
hints that the late visit of the Empress Euge?
nie to Spain was only a blind, and that the real
purpose was to cross the .Pyrenees Into
France, o la Ducfiesse de Berry, to stir up
commotion among the peasants of Lmguedoc
and La Vendee, in order to draw the attention
oi the government in that direction, while
General Douay, in Pari?, was maturing a con?
spiracy In favor ot the return oi the Bona
partea. This gossip has arisen irom the al?
leged discovery of Douay's Bonapartlst ploi ;
hut as General Douay has been removed from
his command In the army, and Changarnier
another Bonapartist, by the way-put in his
place, and the Empress has arrived at. Tor?
quay, the attempt to revamp the Empire has,
it is presumed, been given up.
-A London letter, in referring to the recent
autumnal manouvres of the British army,
says : "There is a ?ood deal of quiet ridicule
ol the Prince ul Wales afloat. The Prince is
commander or a cavalry brigade, but imo never
learned his bu>iness, and iherelore wisely de?
clines doing anything or alvina uny order in
the field. So lhere is the whimsical spectacle
exhibited of a commander in full uniform act?
ually on the ground, and in the place where a
commander ought to be, bo long as nothing
-. has to be done; but the moment an order is to
be given, or a movement made, quietl v vaca?
ting Ids place and leaving his brigade to do as
. it likes without him. The poor Prince ls not
to blame lor not knowing what he has never
been allowed to learn. But think of the sys?
tem wbibh makes such a thing possible."
m ^-"Thelron AgeT contains an account of a
new iiutrnment for indicating the velocity of
flowing liquids ?u.d for measuring the speed
of ships, called Vite rhyslmetetr, which has been
Invented in England, and toss attracted much
attention among scientific cien. The capacity
to measure the speed of -ships ls a highly im?
portant application o? the instrument. The
apparatus heretofore used (in connection with
the half-minute -glass) lor that purpose, the
well known "log" -attached to the log-line and
dropped ovrr the stern ot the vessel, ls a very
Inaccurate method of measurement, as a
heavy sea sometimes throws it alter the ship,
while a head sea may carry it in the opposite
direction. The glass also measures the half
minute with difficulty In dry and damp
weather; and the line is liable to change its
length. Even the best substitutes for the log
are said to be not always reliable. By the new
invention the indicator may be in the captain's
cabin. It is said to resemble In size and ap?
pearance a barometer. In lt a column of mer?
cury Indicates continually the speed ol the
ship. The full effect ol the velocity ls impart?
ed to the mercury without any applicable loss
by friction or otherwise, so that the indicators
must always be absolutely correct. The Instru?
ment may be mado Belf-registering, showing
on a dial the total number of knots the ship
has run, and marking on a sheet of paper the
precise speed attained at all periods of the
voyage. The practical value of such an in?
vention ls obvious.
The Kn-KIni Pother.
The Nationalist is not surprised tb at THE
NEWS should decline to be muzzled by the
Columbia Union; but only because it con?
siders the policy of TUE NEWS "perfectly
"consonant with the course hitherto pur.
"sued by that journal in particular, and by
"the Democratic press generally, to charge
"the Government and the Republican pa
"pers with systematic and malicious mis
"represen tat ions in regard to Ku-Klux
We say, without mincing word?, that the
Columbia Union (the only Radical daily pa?
per, besides the Nationalist, in this State)
ua3 systematically and maliciously misrep?
resented the people of tbi3 State. It has
crowded its columns with the letters of cor?
respondents, whose names it refuses to
disclose, although their statements are
shown to be false. We have not relied, ns
the Union relies, upon bold assertions. We
have, in each instance, printed the false ver?
sions of the Union, and the truthful versions
of responsible newspapers and responsible
men. We have given the facts which war?
rant the statement that Ku-Kluxism bad
nothing to do with the murder of Hare or
McClure or Thompson; that no Ku-Klux
outrage bas taken place in Edgeiield ; that
there are co Ku-Klux in Fairfield; that Ryt
enburger was not whipped in Sumter. All
these stories were paraded in the Union as
Ku-Klux atrocities. They are either fabrica?
tions, or they are malicious misrepresenta?
tions of the truth. What the Union and its
correspondents did not invent, they twisted
and distorted into such shape a3 suited them.
And the State Government is equally goiltj
with the Union. Governor Scott is the mas?
ter of the Union, and whatever it says is
adapted to his wishes, lt is he wbo de?
nounces martial law to-day and embraces it
to-morrow ; it is he who bad the assurance to
say that "he bad taken measures" to make
the approaching session of tbe United Hates
Court, in Columbia, as m morable to tbe
night-riders as the recent session in Raleigh.
And the United Stales Government is equally
guilty wilh Governor Scott and his organ.
The chairman of tbe Ku-Klux sub-committee
reported to the President that tbe condition '
of Sooth Carolina was such as to demand
the ircn hand of military force to suppress
Ku-K!ux violence. He gave the names of ?
certain persons as authority for his state?
ments. The Grand Jury of York County I
brought Senator Scott's informants before ]
them, and, afterao investigation which lasted
eight day?, they reported thal since lust ,
.July lhere had been, in York County, only i
one case of violence (the chunking ef two
colored meu) which could truthfully be
attributed to what are called Ku-Klux. To
incite the United State3 marshal to move I
quickly he is threatened wilb removal; and
now Attorney-General Akerman goes up to
York to help on the indiscriminate arn'Bt or
the persons suspected of Ku-Kluxism. We
say that the Radical pres?, North and South,
and the Radical officials and politicians,
North and South, do systematically and
maliciously misrepresent the people of the
South. And they know it, as well as we do.
We have read, as tbe Nationalist request,
the correspondence between Judge Bond
and some Raleigh lawyers who begged him
to postpone ihe hearing of the Ku-Klux
cases. These lawyers admitted that a Ku
Klux organization existed in North Caro?
lina, and promised tbat it should bc dis?
banded and broken up. But we cannot see
tbat this has aught to do with THE CHARLES?
TON NEWS. Our position is this: We stand
ready now, and we have always been ready,
to condemn any violation of the law for any
reason whatever. We have, a thousand times
over, condemned Ku-Kluxism as an un?
lawful, a wrong and an impolitic remedy for
the evils of which we complain. But here we
stop. We will not admit that aman is guilty
ofKu-Kluxi3tn until heis proved to be guilty.
We will not, to please Governor Scott, pub?
lish, as trustworthy, statements which are
false from beginning to end. We did desire
to repose some confidence in the Union, as
we do ile3ire to trust the word of the Nation?
alist. But we cannot believe one syllable
that the Union says about the Ku-K'ux.
We have found it guilty so ofte.i, that we
dare not believe it when it happens to be in?
nocent. This ?3 unfortunate, but we cannot
help lhat. We cannot reprint the Ku-Klux
stories of the Union as they appear in its
columns, because we tint!, in each case,
that they are either false in ?clo, or gross
p.11 aggeratiOD3. But when an act of violence
ha3 unquestionably been committed, the
Nationalist will lind us a3 ready to condemn
that act of violeuce, as we were to denounce
the breaking open of the Union jail and the
killing of the murderers of Stevens. We
love peace and quiet, but this people shull
not be slandered anil misrepresented while
we may raise our voice in their defence.
A Cotton Kat lory In Lexington.
We learn, with pleasure, that Mr. John
Green is about to erect a coi'on fac?
tory on Red Bank ?reek, two und a half
miles from Lexington Depot. The Gazelle
informs its readers that Mr. Green is now
buying the necessary machinery, and ex?
p?ela that the prospective large profils of the

Up to this lime (Tuesday ) ten men bave been
arrested as Eu-Klux and lodged lc the Jail at

Only five of this number are now lo jail. The
statement of the Phcenix, upon Information
received from the marshal, "that numbers of
