that of an ocean storm ship. It ls proposed
that a screw steamer of immense power and
especially fitted for tbe purpose, be stationed
In mid-ocean directly above the line of an
ocean cable which shall be laid lor the purpose
of connecting; lt with the shores of Europe
and the United States. Toe vessel ls to be
provided with powerlul pumps BO lt may be
able, if necessary, to assist a ship In distress
in mid-ocean, and tow her te port. Under
such circumstances, facilities would be provid?
ed for anchoring the end of a cable to a float?
ing buoy ol immense size, and so arranged as
to render a cable sale while the vessel lea her
station. The plan, with some modification,
will doubtless be carried into effect at no dis?
tant day by International co-operation.
The Tb ron o of England.
The latest London telegrams, dated nine
o'clock yesterday evening, report that the
Prince of Wales was sinking fast, and that
there was little hope or his recovery.
The Prince of Wales was born on Novem?
ber 9,1841, and, in the event of his death,
his eldest soo, Prince Albert Edward, now
in his eighth year, becomes the heir appa?
rent to the English throne. As it is hardly
' probable that Queen Victoria, shattered in
health as she is, will -eign many years
longer, our English cousins may look for?
ward to an Irksome regency, which will give
"the new Cromwell " and Sir Charles Dake
as good an opportunity as they could desire
of preparing the way for the establishment
of the Kepa'..lie of Great Britain.

The Way the Money Goes.
The people have been amazed that the
State Government, while levying enormous
taxes, should have incurred a huge floating
debt for the payment of which $3,773,000
of State bonds are now in pawn, and, while
in receipt of a larger revenue than any pre?
ceding administration, should have piled up
million after million of bonded indebted?
ness. And now one of the leaks is shown.
The Columbia Union, in its issue of Tues?
day, says that, "during the past three years,
"appropriations have invariably exceeded
"the receipts from taxes by several hundred
"thousand dollars. In 1869, there ?vas
"realized from taxes, seven hundred and
"sixty-six thousand seven hundred and thir?
ty-six dollars. The same year the Legisla?
ture appropriated not less than one mil-,
"lion one hundred and ninety-one thou
"sand dollars more than the entire tax levy
"for that year. In 1870, the amount of
"taxes collected was, in round'numbers,
"eleven hundred thousand dollars, while the
"appropriations reached the enormous figure
"of sixteen hundred thousand dollars, an
"excess of over a half million above the
"receipts. The appropriations for 1870,
"amounted to the entire tax levy, no regard
"having been paid to the fact that much of
"the tax is neoesarily delinquent."
This is indee-: a startling admission. A
deficiency in three years, on carrent revenue,
of about TWO MILLION DOLLARS. When will
the Republican party begin the work of re.
trenchment and reform ? Nous Verrons
Ass Unimpeachable Witness.
The people of the State who oppose cor- .
raption, and desire that only capable and
honest men-be elected to public office, find
an ally as unlooked for M the severely vir?
tuous Bowens and Whit temores of the Gen?
eral Assembly. The Colombia Union, a
bitterly Radical sheet, broadly declares its
intention to leave tho sinking ship, and to
direct itself to the purification of Sooth'
Carolina Radicalism. This decision does
honor to the shrewdness of the Union, for
lt is evident that no party can long hold to?
gether which approves ot condones or cor?
ruption such as that of which the State Gov?
ernment is confessedly guilty. We cannot,
however, forget that, on previous occasions,
Radical journals which have talked big, and
refused to be influenced by any clique, have
become sa gentle u doves long before
election day. They have feared that their
party would ge to pieces if ali incapable
and unworthy officials were driven from
authority. And there wu reason for the
fear. The active white members of "the
"party" may, according to Governor Scott,
be numbered on the Angers of a man's hand ;
and it is impossible for Republicanism to
gain any strength while it allows itself to
be made the ,1001 of a gang of public rob?
bers. For ourselves, we caa Bay, with all
frankness, that what we seek is the removal
of all dishonest and ignorant servants of
the publia We do not make war upon the
black man any more than upon tie whites.
We do not make war npoo any official be?
cause he is a Republican. Our fight is
against Fraud and Robbery wherever and
whenever we find iL And in this work the
Union, if it be in earnest, can do yeoman
We reprint the greater part of our con?
temporary's articles upon "The Republican
"Party-Its Duty," italicizing the passages
to which we desire to cali especial attention :
"The Republican party ls responsible for the
acts of Individual members of the party, lu sc
far as lt endorses their acts in a pub ic way.
A man elected to office, who afterward be?
trays the high confidence and trust reposed in
him by his parry, ls no longer regarded SB a
representative of eald party, unless he shall
have again been endorsed after his rascality
haa become apparent.
"No one can deny that rascally of the most
venal kind has been practiced in this State,
under the protecting shield of tbe Republican
party. Some of the men elected to public
positions ot honor Md trust have most shame?
lessly abused both the honor and the trust.
The duty of the party ls plain and unequivo?
cal. We must not shield the guilty, nor
must we wink at Incompetency or inability,
simply because men are Republicans. The
party must be purified at all hazards, and at
whatever 'cost, even if it ie necessary to throw
overboard every man now reckoned as a leader
in the party. No political party can live for
any length of time which persists in carrying
such loads as we have been compelled to carry
In thia State. There are men who call them?
selves Republicans, who are a disgrace to any
party under heaven, and not a few of these
men assume to dictate the policy of the party,
and prescribe who shall and who shall not be
elected to office. If a man takes issue with
th?-m on the course pursued by the party, and
dares to criticise the octa of public officials,
forthwith he is called a 'Democrat' or a 'Re-'
'former.' Thia has been the case with us in
maoy Instances, bat we want it distinctly un?
derstood by all that thu journal cannot be
controlled by any factlob, cliqwe or ring, ?or j
will it cease to pursue the course which all
honest Republicans endorse, simply because
what it may say un this subject may injure
the chances of a few self-opinionated indi?
viduals. The Republican party is a party of j
?justice, of right and of intelligence; and Us
principles are troth, liberty and progress,
and, while a majority of Its members in this
State may not bs educated in all the arts and
science?, yet they are honest, and will not, if |
they know it, vote for dishonest men. The
opportunity to reorganize the party will soon
be presented to us, and lt will be well if we
all fix upon one common point of departure,
and that le, that we will have none but honest,
intelligent, capable men for public office. Let
us Belect none but the best men, without re?
gard to the amount of dirty work, or the
money they have spent for the party.
"We prefer peing counted out, to being com?
pelled to support mea who think that all the '
virtue and intelligence of the party centres in
them. There are men in the party from whom
we intend to make the fur fly when the proper
The foregoing article is an indication that
the efforts of the press to break up the Bing
are not without result. Something is al?
ready accomplished when a bigoted Radi?
cal organ is driven to the admission that
"rascality of the most venal kind has been
"practiced in this State;" that there are men,
calling themselves Republicans, who are "a
"disgrace to any party ander heaven," and
that the Republican party must be punned
"at all hazards and at whatever coat" It
remains now to force the fighting. The
Ring, once broken, will be as woefully power?
less 03 that which the Democrats and Re?
publicans of New York smashed and shat?
tered. The work is one in which all honest
men may properly engage, for all honest
men alike will share in the fruits of victory.

ance, to eradicate and prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote the growth or the hair and stop its falling
ont. lt la entirely harmless, and perfectly free
from any poisonous substance, and will therefore
take the place or all the dirty and unpleasant
preparations now In nae. Numerous testimonia a
have been sent us from many or onr most promi?

everything in which the articles now In nae are
objectionable, CRYSTAL DISCOVERY la perfect.
It la warranted to contain neither Sugar of Lead,
Sulphur or Nitrate of Silver, it does not soil tee
clothes or scalp, la agreeably perfumed, and
makes one or the b at dressings for the Hair in
nae. It restores the color ol tbe Hair "more per?
fect and uniformly than any other preparation,"
and always does so in from three to ten daya,
virtually reeding the roots or the Hair with all
the nourishing qaailtles necessary to its g-owth
and healthy condition; lt restores the decayed
and Indacea a new growth or the Bair more posl
tively than anything else. The application of
thia wonderrnl discovery also produces a pleasant
and cooling effect on the acalp and gives the Hair
a pleasing and elegant appearance.
We call especial attention to the fact that a
limited number of trial bottles will be given way
gratuitously to those wishing to try lt. You will
