Thanksgiving Day-The Metropolitan
Police Bill-A Pretty Conspiracy |
Against the Pabllc Peace.
& [PROM O?B OWN CORRESPONDENT.;
COLUMBIA, S. C., November 30.
The exhortations of Messrs. Grant and Scott
to a day of thanksgiving -ar.d prayer were
pretty generally regarded in ,0! um bia to-day,
and lt has been dies non IA the courts and
Legislature, except, lnd*ejd, in the lower
house ot the Assembly, where an effort was
made to get np a meeting ind renew the
quarrels of yesterday, which t flort failed for j
want of a quorum. The House, it may be re- ]
membered, yesterday adjourned until to-day,
in disregard of the Thanksgiving proclama"
tions, but when the hour of noon arrived the
claims of the day proved strenget than even
those of trie amateur debating cl ut, called by
ghastly courtesy the Legislature, aid the buz- j
zards gave way to the turkey. -
Among the plots on foot against the peace
and comfort of the State, which v Ul be de?
veloped within the next week:, rae of the
most important ls the movement t > carry the
device known as the metropolitan police bill
through tbe LeglBUture. Tuis is a trick sug?
gested to the Radicals soon after ! heir crush
fug dofrat in Charleston last sn amer, and
wuich "has for its object the wren ming from
the people of that city one of the Important
fruits ol their victory, namely, the Millee gov?
ernment of the city, and the patronage in?
volved ?herein. It ia a device borrowed from
the wily Radicals of New York OUy, who,
when they got In power In the Legis?
lature, duding the City of New - York
overwhelmingly Democratic, proceeded to
divest Its people ol self-government, and en?
rich themselves by saddling on the city a cost?
ly and cumbersome set ot state commissions,
which Insulted its citizens, plundered its
treasury, and opened the door to that gigantic
system of fraud, which has recently culmina?
ted in such a political upheaval as has never
before agitated any American community.
To the bad features of the New York plan
have been added, lt ls understood, all that was
batalu the metropolitan police system
ol ohio: both have been adopted with
as much Ingenuity as Is pc sessed by
Messrs. Mackey, Bowen, Pillsbury, Hen?
dricks et al,i to the local circumstances of
the case, and the scheme will be launched lo
the Legislature on Monday or Tuesday next,
Srobabiy by C. C. Bowen In the House and
eorge F. McIntyre in the Senate. The bill ls
drawn to include" the Olles of Charleston and
Columbia, and will involve an expenditure ol
about $100.000, with the sole effect of enrich?
ing hali a dezen individuals, and regaining a
foothold in the now emancipated City by the
Sea. The commisioners named In the bill
are Willoughby L Pillsbury 1 ! and Hen?
dricks ! ! ! fae latter, with ex-Detective
Hernandez and a host ol other sore-heads,
are here from Charleston, industriously engag?
ed lu lobbying in the Statehouse and on tue
streets. They claim to hav? the Hor.se secur?
ed, and to have received the assurance by the
Governor ot his co-operation and approval, but
but lt ls said that the bill will inevitably be de?
feated in the Senate. Ot the latter body one
or twpMwblte members, who have been known
hitherto as comparatively honest, have ex?
pressed their decided opposition to the bill, on
the ground that, however suited such a meas?
ure might be to the pecqnJary capacities of |
New York or Cincinnati, it was unnecessarily
and prepost wusly expensive for such com?
munities as Columbia and Charleston.
SHALL WE REPUDIATE.
[Prom the Darlington Southerner.]
The question with os. now Is, shall we, on
account of alleged deficiencies of our State offi?
cials, refuse to meet our obligations ? lp no
system ot logic do two wrongs make a right.
We have our duty to perform regardless of "the
delinquencies ol others. Repudiation wilt not
add much to the honor of our State. Neither
eau we advise our people to refuse to pay their
taxes, until an exhibit ls made of the entire
liabilities of the State, and until we have some
certainty that the money will be properly
spent. It is clearly our duty to pay eur taxes
when due, and no sophistry can relieve us of
this obligation. We shall have the conscious-,
ness of having performed oar duty by so
doing, and, however derelict others may be,
we shall not bo in fault.
AN EMINENT AMERICAN NATURALIST.
W [From the London Spectator.]
America bas lost one of her greatest nata
radsts. Dr. John Edwards Holbrook, one of |
the most eminent zoologists and comparative
anatomists of the United States, has recently
died at Wr*?ntbam, In Massachusetts. One
who knew him intimately fa vois us with the
following details: Dr. Holbrook, born at"
Beaufort in South Carolina ia 1795, educated
in Kew England, and graduated at Brown
University,. ia Rhode Island, subsequently
studies! In Philadelphia, Edinburgh, and, Lon?
don. IQ 1842 he published a larne work on the
reptiles of the United States, with costly plates
(mostly at his own expense,) which at that
period were only rivalled by Audubon, In an?
other department. In, 1824 he was chosen
Srofessor of anatomy in the University ot
cu th Carolina, and ia later years he was en?
gaged upon a work on the ichthyology of the
United States, which promised to be one of the
frealest scientific achievements of bis country,
ut the recent war broke in upon his labors.
His beautiful estate, near Charleston, where
so many European savana have been hospita?
bly entertained, was.no longer a habitation
for culture and the -resort of science. Amid
the ravages, "however, of olvll war, bis library
was spared; and if his oaks were cut down
those 1 'live oaks" vt great age and beauty, of
which he wes so proud and lond-bis unpub?
lished plate? were saved, and will be valued
by the coming student. Dr. Holbrook was ex?
tensively known upon this side of the water,
and was a member of many foreign academes.
In his own borne the ciose companion of
Agassiz, t tie frlf nd of Pierce, of Treadwell, of
Bancroft, his name will not be forgotten lo ?

It la through no fault of the Tribune that the
people have uot been sufficiently warned that

lng the South, so far as terrorism and misrule
can ruin that section of the republic We
have been constant in plain exposition cf the
two evils which afflict many of the lately re
bellions States; add trustworthy speelat cor?
respondents have furnished tue Tribune the
only Impartial and lucid accounts published of
the financial maladministration and partisan
violence which have disgraced several of the
reconstructed States. In this labor we have
had the hearty, if partial, co-operation of
the Democratic newspaper?, which have eager?
ly copied and made much ot the evidence
snowing the shocking financial condition
of these States, but have been suddenly silent
when our correspondent's researches brought
to light the barbarities and atrocities of the
Ku-Klux. No party can afford to pursue this
policy; and it is not creditable to the fairness
or the sagacity of the Democrats. North and
South, that they have steadily refused to look
on one side ol the truthful picture presented,
while the other has been persistently and tri
umpbantly held up to public view. The Dem
ocrutlc journals have been s wilt to denounce
carpet-baggers; but have stopped there. Nev
ertfceless, there has been a great shaking
among the thieves and murderers. This is a
time for inquisition lor blood and thefts; and
If there are men anywhere holding power for
the purpose of stealing, or sheltering robbers
and violent men, they may take warning; the
day ot reckoning is at hand.
We have already helped to bring to light
the misdeeds of some men lu high places in
Texas, Georgia, North Carolina and elsewhere,
Bnd on yesterday gave the public a sorry pic?
ture ot the results of carpet-bag rule In South
Carolina What a shameful exhibit lt is ! By
higgling with figures aod manipulating art?
fully contrived tables, a ring of adventurers
kept the people ot South Carolina as com?
pletely in the dark about the finances of the
State as though their false returns had been
printed in Sanscrit. They prophesied smooth
flings while the ship was drifting into the
whirlpool of bankruptcy. They lied about the
:ondli iou of the treasury regularly and At fixed
intervals, with all the system of practiced
mountebanks. Bonds were printed In New
fork by the ream and sold in Wall street for
tr hat they would fetch. A so-called Staie
igenr, a street broker, handled millions of
Lheae bonds, without giving a shadow of re
iponslble security for the Integrity of his deal?
ings.. The governor, treasurer and comp?
troller-general vied with each other In fabri?
cating statements Intended for the public eye,
while the real tacit and figures la the deeper
ite case were kept la the secrecy ot their own
jfflces. There seemed to be no such thing as
sounding bottom In the wild stream which
rushed out of the State treasury. An investi
rating committee, appointed by the frightened
Legislature, came up to New York to look j |
nto the finances of the State, which had no
ipparent existence outside ot Wall street; and 11
.hese gentlemen turned their tour Into a hoi!
lay trip, and relaxed the stern justice of their i <
nient Into a wild junketing at an up-town I (
?otel. I (

NEW YORK, November 29.
Xbe simultaneous retirement of Minister
Sickles from the court of Spain, and the dis?
patching of Admiral Lee's fleet to the coast
of Cuba, creates some uneasiness In commer?
cial circles. While nobody knows exactly
what the trouble ls about, everybody is satisfied
that Mr. Grant would be glad, during the next
political campaign, to engage the country in
a small war, In wh ch victories would be easy,
and the people would be forced to rally around
their government. A war with Spuln, for
many reasons, would be a popular one, but
chiefly because Americans, almost without ex?
ception, sympathize with the Cubans in their
struggle tor Independence, and because their
Indignation is aroused repeatedly by the mur?
der of prisoners in cold blood by the Spanish
troops and Havana volunteers. Such a mob
of wretches as the latter bas not Incensed hu?
manity since the dark ages. It almost seems
proper that civilized nations should Interfere
lu Cuba, and by wholesome retaliation bring
the Spaniards to their senses.
It may ,be tint Grant will play his trump
card In a Spanish war. Perhaps he has had lt
In his mind for a long time, and has been hold?
ing back ior the proper moment What a
prestige it would give his administration, If,
during the pendency ot the Presidential elec?
tion, an American fleet should level the Moro,
an American army (under pet Sheridan, of
Bourse, Sherman bas been seat off to Europe,)
should assault and capture the Havana, and
Juba should ba wrested from Spain and an?
nexed to the United Slates ? Where would
civil service reform, revenue reform, the new
ieparture, Carl Schurz and his third parly,
md i he complaints ot the President's nepotism
tod Incapacity be iu the midst of the hurricane
)f popular enthusiasm which such mlll'ary
Humphs would arouse ?
The newest opposition candidate for the
Presidency, suggested In this quarter, is t he
referable William Cullen Bryant, poet and
editor or the Evening Post. The idea of rifn
llng Bryant for the Presidency Is rather more
aociful than serious, for he ls a very old man
ind even In Infirm health. Unlike most poets,
?owever, be has an eminently practical side.
Ie is as good a political economist and statlB
Jclau as weaver ol romantic thoughts In
rene, and as a statesman has lew peers In or
mt or public life. He ls likewise a born Dem
c-crat, and has been In accord with every prin?
cipal of the party, except those connected
villi the slavery Issue.
Another possible Presidential candidate ls
Samuel J. Tilden, chairman of the New York
Democratic State committee, and the real
eader of the recent reform .movement against
rammaoy. TUdeu's triumph has given him a
lational reputation, dud he goes into the new
legislature to become the most conspicuous
character in lt. Yet with all his force and
ibility he does not carry heavy guns enough
ora Presidential candtdate against Grant,
liter all be is but a local-not a national
?ero. He would make a magnificent Demo
sratlo President though.
Charles O'Couor IB also proposed by sundry
ournals Inside and outside the city, chiefly on
kCcouQt of the part he his taken In destroying
tammany. His return to the surface cf poli
ics reminds people ol bis spot less character,
if his great learning and abllitle?, of his calm,
udlclnl mind, of his resoluteness, experience
md wonderful capacity for hard work. He'
vould be a President worthy of the better
lavs of i he Bepublio. But alas! he has two
ilemente of unavailability. He la a Roman
Catholic, and his faith would be adroitly used
iy Radical politicians to arouse a religious flt
latlcism ia the North which would be fatal to
ila prospects. He made a strong speech In
he New York Academy of Muaic In 1859 in'
avor of "slavery," or what he called "the
lateral subordination of the Inferior lo the
uperlor race." Were he a candidate that
peech would be published by the Radic?is as
i campaign document. There are many Radi?
cals ol high standing in the party of course
rho used to believe tn "slavery" as earnestlv
LS O'Conor. The difference, however, la, that
hey recanted, while O'Conor sticks to his old
ion viciions still.
An attempt wilt be-made this week to reor
cauize tbe Democratic parly ot the city and
State. A meeting of prominent Democratic
carty managers, who have not been Identified
?Ith Tammany Hull, ls to be held and the mat?
er talked over. Among the reorganizers who
will take part are Tilden, Otiendorffer.'of the
Merman paper, Ben. Wood, Edward Cooper,
Peter's son,) Max Goeppe, another leading
berman, Jimmy O'Brien, senator elect. Judge
Brady. ex-Dlstrlci-Attorney Courtney, and
Comptroller Green. There has been a move
nent started also for ihe purificat ion and re
>rganlzalion of Tammany. The disposition
imong the Reform Democrats, titougn, ls to
lave nothing whatever to do with Tammany,
fhe name stinketb. Through no laut of its
)wn, but through (he wickedness of its guar
llans, lt has been dragged in the mire and
'orevcr stained. Better let the word drop out
cf politic? und let ihe Tammany Society re?
mine its original character, that of h social
club of merobants and master-mechanics. ?
The troubles of the members of the lato
lng are not ended. At this writing, the un
'ortunate Dick Connolly ls still at the New
fork Hotel, in custody of a deputy BherlO,
mable to procure the full amount of $1 000,
)00 bail. He has luxurious apartments, and
Us personal friends flock to see him, aud
imoke his cigars and drink his wine, but he
leems to realize his humiliation keenly. The
report ls that Mayor Hall und Mr. Sweeny will
ilso be arrested at the Instance of tho com?
mu?e of seventy, and subjected to the same
>rdeal. In the meanwhile; the victorious Be
ormers are getting up a series of brisk fights
imong themselves. Jimmy O'Brien denounces
he committee of seventy, the Tribune and
rimes are throwing mud at each other, and a
arge number of the seventy are scram blina
or office. If lt were not for Tilden and
3'Coner, lt is probable that the Reform move
nent would go to pieces, or m er,; o with the
Republican organization. -The rank and file of
he politicians in "Ihe new party are demo ra V
zed by the greatness ot their triumph.
