-The Germans have sl^ntJIzed once more
one of their recent acquisitions by reopening
the Strasbourg University, which was establish?
ed by that government in 1567, and maintain?
ed until the French Revolution In 1793, during
which time lt had acquired a fame hardly
second to any university in Europe. The re?
establishment of this institu? ion under Rar
man supervision bas been directed by Herr
Yon Moller, the Governor of the province,
and the*ceremonlos of inauguration were also
conducted by him representing the Emperor.
The court-yard of the Schloss was rooted,
floored and decorated with flowers and parti?
colored hangings, on which were emblazoned
the arms of the chief towns In Alsace and Ger?
man Lo?T??ie. Some six or seven thousand
persons participated In the exercises*
the German olvil and military authorities andi
the mayor.and corporation* of Strasbourg., oc?
cupying the front seats. Yon Mollee hand?
ed the charter oL the university to the aged
rector, Dr. Brusch,and at thc same time read

of rank were present, and the ceremonies
closed with music, speeches and toasts,
-The,labor strikes ot the North seem to br
generally successful. The m- >ter masoni of
New York on Monday, by G voie of nine teen
to eighteen, voted to concede eight boura a
day's work. The vote was subs.equer.tly made
unanimous. The bricklayers, stonemasons
moA laborers were expected to return to work
on Tuesday, The German cabinetmakers
and plumbers joined the eight-hour move?
ment. A large number of their employers have
already granted the demanded . concession.
The carpenters are so confident of success that
ail the journeymen are at work who can get
employment at eight hours, A dispatch of
Monday night says: "The strike of the vari?
ons trade organizations for the enlorcement
of the eight hour law has met with success,
- and ls virtually over. The bricklayers re?
sume work to-morrow. The boss carpenters
heid a meeting to-night and endeavored to
compromise on nine hours,-but the men held
ont, aud finally eight hours were conceded
them. The majority of boss cabinetmakers
have given in, os have also the master brick?
layers. Grinders and polishers, and other
minor trade organizations will strike to-mor?
row." In Richmond, Ya,, the house-painters
have refused to serve at present rates, and
other trades are also preparing to demand a
rise, so that the labor problem is looking more
complex than ever.
-A correspondent of ihe New York Herald
at Zanzibar, Africa, writes that one of the
principal Arabs of Ujiji left that place on the
12th of January and reported to Sheik Ben
Naslb, an Important personage in Ucyemwem
ba, that Mr. Stanley, the Herald's chief of the
Livingstone expedition, had reached UJiji fifty
days before. The messenger left by a cir?
cuitous route, which he was compelled to take
on ascount of trouble on the regular caravan
route. At the time of Mr. Stanley's arrival,
Sr. Livingstone was not at Ujiji. He had
been travelling in the neighboring country,
and was distant some twenty days' march
.??rom UJiji, between Lakes Tanganyika and
Victoria Nyanza, but that subsequent];
Livingstone bad arrived at UJlji, and h
Mr. Stanley wera thea together. This
was brought to Zinzlbar. April 2, by the .
Some consider lt strange that Mr. Sta
if at Ujill when the messenger left, dh

by the circumstance that he did
Intend to go to Uoyemwemba when he

If the wisdom of holding a National Coi
ention were before us for consideration, vi
light be disposed to concur with these ger
lernen ; but that ls no longer an open quee
ion. The Convention is called, it will as
amble, and the only issue for U3 to resolv
', whether we will be a part of it, c
rhether we shall adopt a policy of isolatioi
nd hold ourselves aloof.
To separate ourselves from th03e will
hom wo bavo been so long and close!;
>nm;cted-with whoin at have cordiall;
cted during years of unexampled hard
lip-who have been with os the victims of ?
)tnmon calamity, and who now sailer un de
milar misfortunes-is prima facie to com
lit one of those blunders which is equiva
mt to a crime. There may be cause
ifficiently grave to justify It; but it is foi
lose wuo advocate such separation to show
io necessity for it, and we submit that thc
Bcessity has not been made apparent.
The apprehension of Judge Aldrich is that
e may be committed by the Convention,
ad the pith of his argument is contained in
is own expression, that "to bolt before is
much better than a bolt ofter hot blood is
engendered " But if our delegates do their
J ty. as they undoubtedly will, the Gonven
on will be unmistakably informed that a
emocratie nomination cannot be supported
>' tb? Sooth. If the Convention should still
wsist in a nomination, the responsibility of
?cing off tho Southern States will then rest
a it and uot on us. A "bolt," it is true, is
t all times awkward; but a "bolt" is a part
f Judge Aldrich's programme. The differ
ice between us is, that the Judge proposes
i bolt now ; we prefer to wait nntil it is
ecessary. He proposes to bolt alone; we
refer to have company.
Even if the Southern States should, as
iggested by Jndge Aldrich, ratify the nom
latiODS at CiDCiDDati, and decline to Bend
elegates to Baltimore, we do not think such
course could accomplish the result desired, i
r be justified os wise and manly. Whatever
F good could be gained, whatever influence
)nld be exerted by the Southern States,
iparately acting, could surely be as fully
:coraplished by the united action of the
Duthern delegations. To hold otherwise
ould be to maintain that the several action
f each was stronger than the united action
f all. It is not ecough to be righi. It is
ften of the greatest importance to make it
pparent to others that we are right. We
ave no representation in Congress. Beyond
?cal limita we are voiceless. Through the
lemocratic Convention alone can we be
eard, and, through our own people, present
ur case before the tribunal of the country,
'he South, standing as a unit and enforcing
ts cause by argument and appeal, would
xercise the greatest, indeed all the inflo
fice, which can, by any possibility, belong
Is it at all certain that a fair and candid
xpression of our views will not receive
avorable consideration from the Democratic
?arty of the North? We have no right to
issume that it will not. The action of the
lew York State Convention ls already in
ccordance with our wishes. The same
ourse will doubtless be followed by other
States, and if the North should, in deference
to our peculiar position, allow the South to
declare the policy of tho patty, is it not far
better that such result should How from the
general assent of all than be forced upon
the party by the action of a portion ? The
task before U3 is to defeat the present ad?
ministration. The union of all antagonistic
elements is essential to success. Is it pol?
icy to Inaugurate the movement by declining
conference and consultation, and rudely re?
pelling those ou whose aid we must rely ?
Our duty and our policy are to unite all the
Democrats with the Liberal Republicans on
the Cincinnati platform. DJ we facilitate
that result by dissolving the Democratic
party ?-for to refuse to go into convention is
to destroy the parly.
Neither must wc forget that a large
portion of those whom we seek to enlist in
our cause, render no allegiance to the Na?
tional Convention o! the party, to which we
are unaccustomed, and await its decision
before expressing their own convictions.
The most successful appeal lo them is
through the Convention. Shall wo volun?
tarily cast away an engine of andi potency ?
To influence that Convention, to impress
upon it our views, to indace it to realize our
situation and adopt our cause, and labor
earnestly and cordially with us for the re?
demption of thc South, and through it to in?
fluence the Reform parly of the North, is the
great duty before us. The Convention is
our battle-Held. We Lave every thing to
gain and nothing to loee.
We repoat that the strength of the argu?
ment is with us, but in all popular questions
it is not safe to trust to reason alone. Pas?
sions aro often more powerful than judi
ment, and for the South to break Hie Demo?
cratic party without actual cause, but sim?
ply from an apprehension of danger, will
surely sting the pride and iullame the pas?
sions of thc only party in tho country which
professes the principles we hold. Might
they not well say, "Why not have met in
council and appealed to our sense of right,
our disposition to do you justice?"
Ii 3eom3 to U3 that the, wise and manly
course is to go into convention, send our
ablest mee as delegates, and in union with
the ether Southern States exhaust every ef?
fort to procure from the Convention the
action essential to our safety. If we suc?
ceed, much is gained ; if we fail, the power |
of self-preservation still remains.
Thc Political CrislH.
We print, in another column, a letter
from the Hon. W. D. Porter to Colonel
Simeon Fair, in which Mr. Porter submits
the reasons which, in hid opinion, as in our
own, make it imperatively necessary that
South Carolina, at this crisis, should send a
Tull delegation to the Baltimore Convention.
As a dignified and temperotn discussion of a
momentous question, Mr. Porter's letter
will be read with deep interest in every part
of the State.
Tile South Carolina Railroad Com?
At a recent meeting of the directors of Ihis
company authority was given to issue three
million dollars Of 7 per cent, second mort?
gage bonds, to bo used exclusively for ex?
tinguishing the floating debt, and for the
absorption of the non-mortgage bonds of
The floating debt of the South Carolina
Railroad, representing acquisitions of rail?
road and other property without which the
whole business of the road would have been
in jeopardy, has been carried at an onerous
expense, with tbe expectation that the reve?
nue of the company would allow of its grad?
ual payment. Recent investments, how
aver, increased the volume of the floating
iebt to an extent which made it unadvisoble
to continue it as a charge against income
ilone. For the most part it is clearly as
couch a charge against capital as the origi?
nal cost of constructing the road, and it
was reasonable lo expect, moreover, that
the funding of the floating debt would re?
mit in a considerable saving to the compa?
ny. But the obtaining of a large sum of ?
money was not the only point to be re?
garded. The holders of the non-mortgage
oonds were entitled to a certain considera?
tion. And it is believed that the plan final?
ly adopted is just to these, and advantage?
ous to tho stockholders. .The President
is authorized to sell the second mortgage
Doods for cash, and also to receive in part
payment the non-mortgage bonds of the
Company. Taking tbe price of the second
mortgage bonds at 80, and allowing two
thirds of the price to be paid in non-mort?
gages, the holders of these last named bonds
)btain a highly desirablo security at
i very low. rate. For instance, non
mortgage bonds can be bought at
Corless. At this price $15,000 of secured
mortgage bonds would cost: S5000 at 80
?ents, $4000, and $10,000, in bonds, at 05
?ents, $0500; making a total of 510,500,
which is equivalent to seventy per cent. To
ihe stockholders the advantage or the new
arrangement lies in the limit set to the
oonded debt, and in the saving of expense
This lost item will be equal to $30,000 or
540,000 a year; and the increase of indebt?
edness, spread over a period of thirty years,
sanaos exceed one per cent per annum.
The earnings of the road are likely to in?
crease, and the earnings of the first four
months of 1872 are largely In excess of the
earnings of the corresponding period of
1871; but even if the net income in future
years does not exceed that of last year, the
completion of the funding of the floating
debt will still allow the company to pay
moderate annual dividends. Altogether the
position of Hie company has never, since the
end of the war, been as strong a9 it now is.
The road and equipment are in splendid
order, the control of the Macon and Augusta
and the Greenville roads secures to it a large
and growing business, and the arrangement
of the floating debt will unquestionably
enable it to give the stockholders a hand?
some return from what has been for some
time au unremnnerative investment.
