NEWS OF THE I*A T.
-The horse.maiady is in Pensacola, Florida;
the street cars have stopped ?uuclng.
-A suit ls to be Instituted at Salt Lake
against the alleged diamond tie'.* swindlers.
-Woodhull and Claflln have been released
on $2500 ball.
-Judge Nelson, of the United States Su?
preme Court, has resigned.
-The stokers ol live of the London gas
companies have struck, and the public are
warned to use gas sparingly.
-The suit of Warmou'.h against the custom?
house retiring board ls transferred to the
United States Court.
-The city authorities of Boston have or- j
dered the repairs upon the Merchants' Ex
ohaoge to be stopped, as the building when
repaired would be unsafe.
-Tobacco culture will probably become,
wilbla a few years, one of the most Important
Industries of California. The experimente
thia year Io Its production have been remark?
-The slave trade ls in a more flourishing
condition than lt has been for a good* many
years. During the last year 20.000 slaves have
been experted from the eastern coast of |
Africa, and as the great maritime powers of
Europe, with the elogie exception of Great
Britain, have declined to co-operate with the
United States for Its suppression, it seems
probable that the trafilo will Increase rather
than decrease In the future.
-The receipts of the society for the Propa?
gation ol the faith al Rome for the year 1871
were $1.004,175, of which all but $55,000 was
gathered in Europe, France being the largest
contributor. During the same period the
amount of $1,090,640 waa expended by the
society, the total expense of tbe collection
and expenditure being only $6335. The Cath?
olic Church has certainly learned to do its
work with economy. It is a noteworthy fact
that Ireland, out of her poverty, gave to tbe |
propaganda during the year $23,545, and only
took back: $1700, while Scotlana gave only
$400, and received back $8000.
-When tbe Mikado first appeared to the
peopleofYeddo.no one believed lt was he.
No, Indeed, they said; our Mikado ls a god; he
exists, but cannot be seen by our eyes. Wu.
such a thing has never been heard of as the
Mikado to go about In the streets. The BOU of
heaven walk I ban ' nnrnu?tyi?-Ldcnow- h*u [
-? (BR Aila even when his Majesty went for a |
trip to the soulh lo visit his dominion, he ap?
peared to the Japanese Ballon In a foreign
uniform, half French and halt of other foreign
mixture of clothing. And the people be?
lieved him to have been sent by the Mikado;
but as tothatlorelgn-looklng being to be their
Mikado, that they never believed.
-Here ls another Boston notion. A great
clothing house, employing many women, was
nursed ont-wages payable on Monday. The
women refused to take their wages for fear
tba firm would be embarrassed. The firm
then sent to Bora n's Bower and asked Miss Col- j
lins to send to them any work girls, whether j
heretofore employed or not, who might be in
need, and they would provide for them. And
they farther advertised that their pay-roll
would be made up Monday, as usual, and re?
quested their employees to come and take
their pay. This ls ihe e d-fashioned grit that
brough*;out the apostrophes of Webster, and
has turned a rock-bound coast lo a front of
villas and factories. It will do.
-Gibraltar has for years been sour grapes to
Spain. She never looks at Its lrowniog
heights, lia formidable fortifications, crowned
by an allen flag proudly flaunting in the air,
but lt sets her teeth on edge. Year by year
the Cortes has to deal with this subject und
Boothe the wounded and ever fresh sensitive?
ness of the people. It is a kind of "french
spoliation claims" affair that lt ls -ver desira?
ble to bave settled, but which t iv r gets Bet
tied. A Spanish league, bound together by no
end of vows, has even been formed, called the
"Gibraltar Liberation League," and holds
meetings and issues protests and, like a great
many congresses, and conventions, and as?
semblages, behaves lt s sir as If it was actually
of some use In the world. At the present
session ot the Cortes, like Its predecessors, a
motion has been made to open negotiation
with Great Britain for the transfer of this
lamons "key to the Mediterranean."
-The "Arizona diamond field^windle is
a most oruel one to many persons in the Weat.
There are reported to be now about three hun?
dred men at work in these fields, and numbers
are on the way to them. Starting through tho
wilderness, meeting very often no one while
on the way, the chase after imaginary riches
will only terminate when the fields are
reached and ihe truth becomes known. One
of those who have returned from Arizona
disappointed, writes to a Western paper that
the first parties he met claimed to be
employees ol a company from'San Francisco,
styling themselves the "London and Pacific
Diamond and Ruby Mining Company." From
these parties he received the most flattering
encouragement. They informed bim that the
atones were found in abundance throughout
that section of the country, and displayed to
him bushels of the quarta-diamond, and quan?
tities of the emeralds and supposed rubles,
besides some beautiful specimens which could
not be counterfeits. That a number ot per?
sons were engaged In this well-organized j
scheme of fraud la obvious. It was shrewdly
concocted, and admirably carried out. Now 1
let us hope ihe rogues will quarrel, as they I
sometimes do in the Eastern Stares, and then t
we will obtain some light on the subject.
-Princes and potentates in modern tlmeB (
seem to lall easily into the vanities of com- (
mon life, the only difference being that they
carry them somewhat further than ordinary
people. The golden wedding of King John I(
ol Saxony, and his Queen was a happy affair, t
la spite ot Its palpable uselessness and for?

The News and Its Defamers.
The systematic way in which
CHARLESTON NEWS has been Blande?
late, by certain Radical politicians, wai
a reference to the charges growing out
refusal to support ihe malcontent Rai
who organized a bolt in the State canv
Long before the State Radical Conve
was called together it was evident thc
Democrats or Conservatives desired to i
the complications likely to attend the i
nation by them of a full State ticket,
view of the protestations of the Rac
and their own numerical weakness,
Conservatives thought proper to avoid !
nominations, and pursue in each count;
policy deemed best calculated to secur
largest measure of legislative and loca
form. This view was concurred in by
NEWS, and no State nominations were m
In course of time the Radicals held i
convention and nominated a State tk
which certainly was very objectionabli
the Conservatives. A few Radicals bo!
and, in turn, held their convention
nominated their candidates. These were
the most part the puppets of the bold ms
nants who stood behind the scenes-m
dangerous to this people than thrice tl
number of mere public plunderers. 1
NEWS at once advised that the Conservati
should vote for neither the Regular tic
nor the Bolting ticket, except where a Li
porary alliance with one or the other fact
held out the hope of obtaining some chat
for the better in the character of local o Hie?
At the same time it exp reseed the belief tl
the Regulars were quite as honest as the ca
ins Bolters: that they were as much in AA
est; that they were of necessity more in i
cord with the people, and were, for that r<
son, tho more likely to be influenced by cc
servaiive opinion in their conduct of pub
altai rs. This view was manifestly io cont
nance with public sentiment, inasmuch
the Conservatives, where no local considei
Lions intervened, very generally abstain
from voting a State ticket. Throughout t
carfvass THE NEWS was frank and ot
spoken, exercising, as it means always to d
its right of independent thought and ind
Tho coarse of THE NEWS was a bitter p
for the Bolters to swallow. It sealed ihe
Fate. Impaling to this journal the motivi
with which they themselves were mo
'amlliar, they instantly accused it of havin
"sold out" to the Regalar Radicals. J
plain words, it was charged that THE NB?
had been bought, in both the State an
County canvass; the main consideration, i
alleged, being, In the one case, tho promu
ol ihe sheriff's advertising, and, in theothe;
the appointment as county advertiser an
an exorbitant and fraudulent price for tb
advertising ol the laws of the last sessiot
Tho answer to the3e charges is: That TH
NEWS has always had tho sheriffs advert'u
ing, in question, under every administratior
for the suificient reason that this paper ha
a far larger circulation than any other new;
paper published in this county or State
that the appointment as county printer wa
given to THE NEWS without the solicitation
or expectation, or previous knowledge c
its proprietors; that tho price to be pail
for printing the laws in THE NEWS was tixet
by contract many months before either Reg
ulara or Bolters were in the Held, and it
actually about half the rate paid by pri
vate advertisers for Bimilar work. It is
oftentimes the lot of vigorous and indepen?
dent newspapers to be accused or corrup?
tion; and it had not been our custom to
give the words of the common slanderer any
Factitious weight by condescending to con?
tradict them. In this case, however, the
charges were so singularly circumstantial
that we resolved to ferret oat their author.
That being done, their animus would be ap?
parent. The investigation set afoot by THE
NEWS is at an end, and that investigation
ias demonstrated the fact that the imputa
.ions upon ils fair fame' were the invention
)f the Bolters, based upon no better evi
ience than idle gossip and conjecture. They
vere smarting under their utter and well
leserved defeat. They dared not arraign
he Conservative rmisses who had silently
epudiated them. So- they sought to vent
heir impotent epieea upon THE NEWS with
he sole eflect, as the ?record shows, of large
ly increasing its circulation and ge
Looking back upon the events of the
five years, we feel that THE NEWS he
served well of the Conservative public
has been the fearless, and, we hope, ci
fee of c'iques and rings; it has const
exposed and denounced the frauds
short-comings of delinquent and inco
tent officiais; it has been the zei
and active expositor of the potential
vantages of South Carolina as a hon
the thrifty immigrant; it has been the
tiring advocate of movements lookin,
the industrial development of the Sta
has discouraged political sedimenta
and bas, in season and out of season,
borted the people lo have done wit!
foolish practice or maimiug one's self to i
one's neighbor. How much of labo
patience and of money all this has co
the public will never know. But
NEWS, appealing by its conduct to that (
alrous spirit which has always character
the unbought South Carolinian, had a 1
to expect thar, ils counsels, whatever I
merit, would be accepted as, at least, d
terested and well meant. The slan
against THE NEWS, seemiDg to take t
gave us exceeding pain, and it gratifie
beyond measure to possess tbe assun
that the calumnies of which we were t
the victim originated with the defeated g
or Radical soreheads, whose only prop

inability to comprehend personal intes

That the attitude or THE NEWS may n<
misunderstood by any caviller, we here
Unaly say that the charges of direct or

false. We publicly defy friend or foe

The inaugural Ail dress of Govern
The inaugural address of Governor Mos
is a pretty piece of composition, but it do
not contain the terse and lucid declaratic
of the financial and economic plans of tl
new administration which the public ht
reason to expect. Not a word is said of tl
general intentions of the Executive as I
the fonded and floating debt, and the sui
stantial reforms promised in the Rep?blica
platform. Governor Moses may not hu\
had time to mature his plans, so as to la
before the people, in detail, the programn
of bis government. It does seem, howeve
that he might have told the people frank
what would be the nature of the measure
which, later on, he would propose. Tl:
Conservative citizens are shy and distrua
ful, and while THE NEWS does not share i
all their fears, it regrets that the new Qo\
ernor should not have been more explic
upon those points which touch the pocket
of the people, and in wbicb they have tb
deepest concern. Governor Moses promise
that he will take an early opportunity i
communicating with the Legislature as 1
tbe reforms nod amendments which are coi
templated by the spirit and intention of tl
platform of his party. We trust that h
will do so; for any procrastination wi
weaken his influence, and be, besides, a wc
blanket Lo those who have confidence in h.
integrity of purpose.
It is pleasant to be assured that brigbte
und better days are in store for us, and itu
Governor Moses will always remember th!
he represents the whole people of Sout
Carolina; but we cannot forget that whs
success tbe peoplo bave achieved is due ii
ibeir own fortitude and energy, and not t
any fair-dealing or justice on the part of th
Slate Government. South Carolina is sironge
and more prosperous than she was four year
ago; nevertheless millions of dollars which
under an honest administration of affairs
would have remained in the hands of lb
people, have, under Radical rule, passed inti
tbe coffers of dishonest officials and corrup
political adventurers. Radical misgovern
meut has cost South Carolina fifteen oi
tweoty million dollars; without counting the
consequential damages growing out of the
withdrawal of capital, the repelling of immi
gratioo, and tile encouragement of the labor
iog classes to indolence and discontent. Thc
State can work out and will work out, but
only the determined industry of her people
has saved ber from ruin.
The people expect that Governor Moses
will stand up to his fair promises without
flinching; that be will exert his official power
anti personal influence in obtaining a cutting
down of the public expenses; that he will
push the rejection or f.audulent claims; that
hu will cause to be devised a well-digested
financial policy. The people do not look for
impossibilities. Let Governor Moses hon?
estly do his best, and he may count on the
support of every citizen who has an interest
in the security and progress of the State.
Fine words go for little. The people require
of the victorious Republicans that they prove
their good faith by their works.
General JR.. H. Anderson.
We are gratified to learn that General E.
' H. Anderson bas been appointed tho agent
of tbe South Carolina Railroad Company at
Camden, io the place of Mr. A. B. DeSaus
surc, promoted to the Columbia agenoy.
The appointment is as honorable to the
company as, we are sure, it will prove ad?
vantageous to their interests, and it will
I certainly be hailed by the public as a fit?
ting, if modest, recognition of the services
of one of the most gallant and courteous
I gentlemen in the State.
Gover?or Scott, in his valedictory message,
sent to the Legislators on Monday, says:
'In reference to the charges very generally
made by the political opponents of the admin?
istration, to the effect that the people have
been burdened with grievous taxation, and
bare been sorely oppressed by misgovernment
In the State and counties, I affirm that the
patent facts disprove the allegations.
.Burdensome taxes and gross misrule are In?
variably reflected by tbe material condition of
the communities unhappily subjected to them.
They paralyze the industrial enterprlaea ol a
people, and check the investment of capital in
business pursuits, just as the energies and
functions of the whole human body are ob?
structed or destroyed by a disease in aoy of
its vital pana. These chargea may, therefore,
be properly answered by the testimony of the
opposition Itself, aa given incidentally in the
columns ol THE CHARLESTON NEWS, the lead?
ing Democratic Journal, and the most, authori?
tative and sazaclou9 exponent of the commer?
cial and planting Interests of the State. In
Ita Issue ol July 20,1872, that paper holds the
following language, in its leading editorial,
entitled 'Out of the Depths :'
kTbe signs are not hard to understand.
Tbey are written on broad fields and busy
streets, in the storehouse of the planter,-and
tbe warerooma of the merchant. When the
war ended the State was without capital, the
railroad system waa deranged and partly de?
stroyed, labor was entirely disorganized,
agriculture and commerce were alike at a
standstill. What la the position now ? The
railroads ot the State are rebuilt and newly
equipped, excepting where, in the up-coun?
try, they have fallen into the bands of Rad?
ical ringa. The banking capital, although
still email, ls largely Increased, and la In?
creasing. The labor ol the State is, at least,
efficient enough to enable the planters to
make remunerative crops. Ihe receipts of
cotton and the principal articles of merchan?
dise and produce grow larger every day,
both absolutely aud as compared with other
ports. The City of Columbia, which was a
heap of ruins, ls bullded up. and ls instinct
with commercial lile. The City of Cbarlealon
ls rapidly rebuilding, and in every particular
ls lmproviog her position. Fast steumahipa,
admirably equipped, connect Charleston with
the prl oct pal cities of the North. Her trade In
naval stores mounts higher every year. The bu?
siness of mining and manufacturing commer?
cial fertilizers gives employment to hundreds
of working men, and further swella the busi?
ness of the port. Truck farming has reached
I an Importance undreamed of before the war.
Lumber mills, grain mills and other manufac?
turing enterprises add to the stability of the
city. In the Interior, the principal towns
give cheering Indications ot progress. They,
loo, are rebuilding, laying out new streets,
putting up milla and Improving their business
connections. And thia ls only an Imperfect
sketch of the solid work which has been done
during tbe past five years,' "
These Radical officials have the modesty
of the foot-pad who clutches an innocent
wayfarer around the neck, takes bis pocket?
book and watch, and then tells him that he
can't have been robbed because he still pos?
sesses a shirt to bis back. What headway
the people of Sooth Carolina have made has
been in spite of the oppression and extor?
tion of the government. Yet Governor
Scott coolly claims the progresa of the past
?ear or two-as_conoiiia'na-avW**M>*'*faat the
people have not been misruled or over?
? A Big Blunder.
The Lancaster Ledger calls upon the present
Legislature to correct the error committed
two years ago, In adopting the Code, defining
the boundaries between Lancaster and York
Counties by the Catawba River, continuing to
the North Carolina line. Thia error was first
noticed nearly a year ago, and crediting it to
the bungling manner in which the Code was
adopted, no further attention was paid to it.
The gross blunder causes confusion, and the
loss of the votes cast at certain precincts on
the line named In the late election.
THE HON. D. H. CHAMBERLAIN announces
that he ls unable to become a candidate for
I judge or the Fifth Circuit, and expresses the
hope that the Legislature will not bestow the
office "upon any one who ls not inspired by a
"high respect for the office, and a purpose to
"discharge Ita duties with the most scrupu?
