A FEW WORDS TO THE LADIES.
Many ladies, particularly mothers nursing
complain of a tired, listless fooling, or
complete exhaustion, on arising in thc
morning. On tho wifo and mother de?
volves tho responsibility of regulating the
duties of tho household. Her cares are
numerous, and thc mental as well as
physical powers aro frequently called into
requisition. Hbo often tinda her slightest
occupation a weary task and existence a
burdon, whilo at the hame time she has no
regular disease HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS, if rceortod to at this
period, will provo an unfailing remedy for
this annoying lassitude. Tho effects of
this potent agont are soon seen in the rosy
cheek and elastic step of the hoad of the
family, as with restored health and re?
newed spirits she takes her accustomed
place in tho family circle. If this friend in
need be regularly used, those depressing
symptoms will never bo complained of, and
not only would lassitude not be expe?
rienced, but many diseases following its I
advent bo avoided. As a MEDICAL |
AGENT, it baa no equal, while RB pleasing
flavor and heult hf ul effects bavo mado it a
general favorito. It is freo from all pro?
perties calculated to impair tho system,
and its operations aro at once mild, sooth?
ing and efficient. All who have used tho
Bitters attest its virtues and commend it
to uso. Juno 0 l'?
"MANHOOD."-Another New Medical
Pamphlet from tho pon of Dr. Curtis. The
Medical Times says of this work: "This \
valuable treatise on tho cause and cure of
prematuro decline shows how health is
impaired through secret abuses of youth
and manhood, and how easily regained. It
gives a clear synopsis of tho impediments
to marriage, the causo and effects of ner?
vous debility, and tho remedies therefor."

APPEAL IN BEHALF
OE THE LADIES'
The undersigned- beg to make au earnest appeal for aid in behalf of ?
the Ladies' Industrial Association, of Columbia, South Carolina.
The design of this benevolent society is to extend relief to a class to
whom begging would bo worse than death, and who aro willing to work
for a support. .
The disastrous results of tho war baye reduced many formerly in
aflluent circumstances to tlio most severo poverty. Ladies of refinement I
and delicacy, and physically incapable of labor, must now support them?
selves by their own lingers, or sink hopelessly into greater depths of
povorty and distress.
Tho society hus been iu existence for over two years, and has accom?
plished much good.' But how much moro good would it accomplish could
its pecuniary menus ho made at all commensurate with tho enlarged
design of this charit}'. They need a building in which to carry on their
efforts. Tho Association is well aware that all tho moans necessary to
this end cannot bo expected entirely from our impoverished community,
nor yet from our no less impoverished Stato; but thero aro sympathies
heyond tho limits of either which Btill obey tho promptings of benevo?
lence; there are bosoms that throb responsive to tho suflbrings of others.
If God, in His great wisdom, hus seen fit to smite us, Ho bas given
to many of our fellow mell enough and to sparc; and to such, too, He
has given open bauds aud generous hearts.
The ladies in our midst bavo accomplished great results from small
beginnings, and they do not ask assistance elsewhere until we have shown
a willingness at home to help ourselves. In this spirit, wo ask the assist?
ance of this community; mid then wo proposo to ask assistance from
abroad. Who will not give, and give freely, for this benevolent and
noblo purpose? Wo feel that we shall not appeal in vain.
Tho object will ho fully attained if those who givo will subscribo to pay
in instalments, at such times within a year as may be perfectly conve?
nient. Tho society hope to realize, in this way, such a sum as will place
this charity not only upon a safo and permanent foundation, but extend
its benefits to thousands who now ask "for work far beyond tho means of
the society to famish.

7b Messrs. Wade Hampton, J. P. Thomas, J. D. Pope, J. li. Ptdmer and
C. A. Pedell, Committee of Conference :
GENTLEMEN : The Board of Managers of the Ladies' Industrial Asso?
ciation, in compliance with your suggestion, take pleasure in laying before
your Committoo tho following statement:
Tho Association was organized iu November, I860. Its object waa to
relieve, if possible, tko suffering which tho calamitous termination of tho
war brought upon a large class who wero onco in circumstances of
afilueuco or competence They did not ask for alms to buy their daily
bread, but they asked for employmont. Impoverished ourselves, wo could
not givo them what they nteded; but feeling that in union there is strength,
we resolved to combine our efforts, and thus possibly accomplish something
in tho way of aiding those of our sex who had been reduced to tho very
last extremity. There wero those, too, to whom tho needle had always
yielded a support; but, alas! their former patrons havo now to resort to
thc same means for support. These, too, cried for work, work!
With a membership of thirty ladies, each paying ono dollar por annum,
we organized. But boforo commencing operations, Governor Orr placed
in our hands $100 of tho sum which had been sent him by benevolent
persons in Missouri for the destituto in our State. Thi3 wo considered an
interposition of Providenco in o\ir favor; and, greatly encouraged, wo
immediately bought up materials and distributed work to thoso who wero
clamorous for employment. With a capital so meagre, wo could not
expect to sustain our institution for any length of time. But as soon as
"Aid Associations" were formed in New York, Philadelphia and Balti?
more, wo sent them our circular, and asked for a portion of their funds.
lu every instance our appeal met with a favorable response, and wo wero
enabled to prosecute the undertaking with a good degree of success. And
during tho year ending November, 18G7, wo supplied eighty persons,
weekly, with work, and paid out of our treasury $1200.
One great difficulty, howover, has met us at every step of our way.
Our desolated city does not afford a market for tho goods wo manufac?
ture, and it is only when tho kind ladies of Baltimore aro successful in
disposing of what we send them, that any portion of our capital returns
to us. And since tho winding up of tho "Aid Societies" at tho North, we
havo been compelled to resort to various efforts to carry on our enterprise.
But wo aro anxious to make the institution self-sustaining, and to placo it
on a basis which will bo permanent. Tho day of adversity is not over.
Tho "silver lining" of the dark cloud, which has over-shadowed our pros
trato South ever since tho humiliating surrender, does not yet appear.
Destitution and starvation, liko gaunt spectres, still] walk through our
laud, and thero aro thoso iu our midst who, if deprived of husband or
father, must resort to the necdlo for support. We will most gladly wel?
come such to our depository, and not only extend to them our sympathies,
but place in their hands the avails of honest industry, which will foster
in them thc feeling of independence aud ensure thoir self-respect.
Our incidental expenses increase with our growth, and wo feel tho
necessity of asking counsel and co-operation of thoso to whom we aro
accustomed to look in seasons of danger and want. We would have some
plan devised which would ensure a more certain income than the extra?
neous efforts wo have of lute felt compelled to make. It has been thought
advisable by soweto solicit funds to build a depository. It is impossible
for us to decido as to the judiciousness of such a step. Wc therefore sub?
mit the suggestion to you, gentlemen. Counsel us-advise us. Wc rely
upon your judgment-wo ave sure of your sympathy in this ns well as
in every benevolent undertaking.
Respectfully submitted by
THE BOARD OF MANAGERS.

Tho riotous and murderous con?
duct of tho blacks at Washington
after tho charter election had result?
ed in a radical victory, may well alarm
tho country. It matters but little
whether the first blow, which was
the proximate, accidental cause of the
riot, was struck by a white or by a
black hand. All accounts seem to
agree, however, that an inoffensive
white man, a soldier, was tho first
victim of negro violence. Cul across
the ribs with a razor, ho died in a
short time. Another white mnn was
killed by a negro, who cut him across
thc wrist with a razor, severing an
artery. The house of a conservative
Judge of election was entered and
gutted by a negro mob, which was
prevented only by tho strategy of a
policeman from demolishing tho of?
fice of tho National Intelligencer. Re?
staurants wero stoned, forcibly en?
tered and robbed. Tho windows of
other buildings were broken, and tho
wife of a police officer was struck on
the shoulder by one of 'tho missiles.
Throughout the city a largo number
of negroes wero arrested, most of
whom were found to bo armed with
muskets, clubs and pistols, but, ns if
indicating the savage ferocity of tho
infuriated blacks, their favorite, wea?
pon was fontal to be the razor.
What strikes us, however, ns n still
more horrible detail, is tho incendi?
ary speech addressed to tho negro
! mob by Mr. Forney. Our corres?
pondent, in Iiis hitter, which wo pub?
lished yesterday, states that tho
ex-Secrotury of tho tteuato told this
mob that there wero two regiment-!
of Lee's rebel troops in tho city with
hostile intent against tho colored
No lauguago can bo too strong in
reprobation of such a direct appeal
to tho worst passions of an ignorant
and excitablo nico. Tts tendency to
provoko dangerous, ii* not fatal, col?
lisions between whites and black, is
inevitable. Yet this is the tendency of
thc entire policy of the Jacobin
leaders of the dominant radical party.
What Charles Lamb would kata classed
among the imperfect sympathies between
the two races, these blind leaders of the
blind are trying their utmost to convert
into cruel antipathies. Au infinity of
painful consequences must eusue,
culminating, if not providentially
cheeked, in a repetition on a grander
seale of the horrors of the St. Do?
We firmly believe that both the former
slaveholders of the South and their
emancipated slaves would gradually
have adapted themselves to their new
relation to each other, reaping mutual
advantages from it, if fanatical inter'
meddlers had not wickedly Soten ute
seeds of a dreadful conflict of races.
Tho first fruits of this conflict are
visible in tho recent, deplorable
scenes at Washington. A full har?
vest of destruction will bo tho final
and torriblo result.

THE STORY OF WASHINGTON VS. THE
STORY OF GRANT-THE ETHICS OF
177G vs. THE ETHICS OE 1808.-All

When Ulysses S. Grant was a little

Ulysses was so delighted that ho went
about hatcheting everything ho conk!

been going on thus, and so, for moro
than a week, Ulysses cut down ono of
his father's favorito pear trees. When
the old gentleman saw tho ruin of his
favorito pear treo, ho went to U. S.
