COLUMBIA, S. C.
Tuesday Morning:, February 2, 1869.
We doubt if there is'anything in the
world moro arrogant thau so-called reform?
ers, particularly when they have succeeded
in establishing their pet idea, (they rarely
have bat one,) and before time-the only
test-bas afforded tho opportunity of deter?
mining its excellence or fallacy. Tho ficti?
tious eleventh commandment, "Mind your
own business," is peculiarly applicable to
these conceited fools, who imagine their
own littlo noddles to bo tho abiding-place
of all worldly wisdom. So, at least, seems
to think tho editor of tho Madrid Cron&esla,
who trots Mr. Charles Sumner over tho
coals to a very lively air, in a recent article,
upon some gratuitous advice bo lately gavo
tho provisional government, in reference to
the establishing of a Republic. Says the
very appropriately Cronsesta:
"Tho almost unanimous declaration of
the Spanish people, in favor of a monarchy,
is a fit answer to the wishes expressed by
the American Senator. It shows in what
estimation tho counsels of intermeddling
foreigners aro held by tho Spaniards. This
lesson, we hope, will, at the same time,
teach the representative of Massachusetts
the propriety of keeping bis advice for his
own oountrymen, who are as much in need
of good government as ourselves."
It would bo naturally supposed that Mr.
Sumner's talent for governing had met with
snob a disastrous failure in his own family
circle, that be would have been chary at
setting himself up as an arbiter of nations.
Bnt it seems bis lack of modesty is as la?
mentable as bis lack of knowledge of tho
Spanish people. Tho Now Orleans Times
thinks tho rebuke is as well-timed as it is
pertinent; but we supposo his adamantine
conceit will bo as proof to tho courteous
satire of tho Spaniard, as bis chivalry was
on a most trying occasion.
The revolution nows from Cuba is par?
tially, if not fully, confirmed by late tele?
graphic dispatches from Havana. Tho in?
surgent troops, reported as having arrived
at Villa Clara, undoubtedly consist of the
column under C?spedes, then reported as
within ten days' march of that town, where
they expected to receive large reinforce?
ments. Tho return o? Balinaseda to Havana
still further confirms tho growiug strength
of the rebellion, which will, now that It has
reached within striking distance of the rail?
roads, spread with far greater rapidity than
heretofore. The disturbances in Havaua
must have been much more serious than thc
brief dispatches in elation to them would
seem to indicate. The fact that Cabanas
and Numero Cuarto were attacked would
seem to indicate the existence of a respec?
tably numerous organized force in tho field.
These forts lime tho opposite side of tho bay
from Havaua, ?iud fully command it with
their guus. They look almost impregnable
from the front, and tho reported action was
probably brought on by un attempt to sur?
prise or tako them from the rear; an at?
tempt which, if successful, would have been
fatal to the power of Spain in Cuba. This
blow at the citadel of Spanish power, taken
in connection with Dulce's proclamation,
the entire suspension of business in the
city, HU? affair at the theatre, growing, no
doubt, out of tlie reception of tho news that
C?spedes had reached Villa Clara, ono of the
most important strategic points to the in?
surgents, is exceedingly suggestive. Im?
portant events ure evidently on tho eve of
transpiring in Cuba, which, unless present
indications are at fault, will materially in?
fluence the destin}* of the. island. The kill?
ing of three men, two Indies and some
children, in tho streets of Havana, proves
that the disturbances havo not yet been
quelled. The effort to underrate their im?
portance in thc telegraphic despatches is
too plainly evident for us to receive the
statements made without some grains of al?
lowance.- New Orleans Times.
LET US HAVE PEACE.-This is what
General Grant says, but Senator Sumner is
apparently opposed to anything of tho kind.
As already stated, he has introduced a bill
in tho Senate imposing a penalty of two
years' hard labor upon all persons who shall
assume to exercise official functions in the
Southern States, in violation of the
fourteenth constitutional amendment. In
other words, uuy Soul bern mau who at any
period of his life held an office that required
him to take au oath to support tho Consti?
tution of tho United States, and subso- j
rjnently engaged iu war ugaiuet the United i
States, or gave aid and comfort to those who
did .M) engage, and now accepts any office,
State or Federal, is to be deemed a /clou,
and put to hard labor in the penitenitary or
State prison. "Let ns have peace," Mr.
It is now definitely known that the loss
of life and the injury of passengers on
board the steamship Pereire, which put
back to Havre on tho 2()th ult., resulted
from her encountering a terribie gale at sea,
during which tho vessel lurched tremen?
dously, throwing the passengers about with
great violence, killing six and disabling
many more. Captain Duehesue behaved
himself with gnat courage, and was warmly
complimented for his coolness and success
in bringing the ship safely into port.
Mrs. Gencrul Grant is said to have tho
smallest foot of any lady iu Washington.
Agricultural Societies- Ca JI tow mm Agrlcnl- j
Among tho despatches in tho Phoenix of i
the 23d ultimo, I read with much pleasure, !
tho following from Atlanta, Georgia:
"Each County in this State ia organizing
agricultural societies, delegates from which
will be passed over tho various railroads,
freo of charge, to this city, to attend a con?
vention to be held hero on thc first Tuesday
Wo have hore an example set by our en?
terprising neighbors across tho Savannah
River, which wo would do well to emulate.
It embodies the most sensible policy which
has beeu suggested in ?my quarter, since
I the close of the war. Events havo shown
that our several attempts to exert a com?
manding political influence were worse than
futile. Stigmatized as unsuccessful rebels,
disfranchised, suspected, vituperated, with
overwhelming, reckless majorities agniust us,
what could wo say or do, and not at tho same
time outrage our enemies, and hazard our
own self-respect? If the lamb did not muddy
tho stream above him where tho wolf was
drinking, ho committed some other equally
grave offence, six months beforo ho waa in
existence. Under tho circumstances in
which ho was placed, it was impossible for
tho lamb to establish bis innocence. But,
while we have accomplished so little towards
our relief, by political combinations and
party struggles, there is redemption for tho
South. In God's good time, it will come;
we must look for it hopefully, and faith?
fully work for it. Wo lcaru from many
sources that the capital and industry of tho
North, East and West is looking with long?
ing eyes to our cotton, sugar and tobacco
fields, and that the great manufacturing in?
terests bavo concluded that tho derided
South is tho truo scene of their operations.
They see that the South is destined to be
como as rich, prosperous and great materi?
ally, as it is stainless in honor, and glorious
in renown. These men of tho East are
wiso in their way; they are quick to discern
and prompt to worship where tho ascending
star points out tho shrine. Let them bt
encouraged; lot us prepare for their advent.
Already the movement bas beguu, and bo
fore a great while Columbia uud othei
points will experience immense benditi
from tho outlay and enterprise of Governoi
Spraguo and other capitalists. Our true
policy is to welcomo them all to tho advan?
tages with which a beui?cent Providence:
has blessed ourselves.
Mr. Editor, wo have a duty lo perform
lying immediately beforo us, aud to which
tho example of Georgia invites us. Le
us form agricultural societies in every Dis
trict in tho State. Our democratic clubs
already organized, will servo us admirably
for this purpose. Next, let us bold n State
Agricultural Convention in Columbia, it
April or May. Railroad companies, w<
take it for granted, will bo as liberal au<
accommodating hero as in Georgia. Im
proved methods of cultivating colton ant
other crops, the introduction of new ones,
the regulation of tho labor in our midst, th
steps necessary to bo taken to promote im
migration, tho enclosure system, thc im
provemeut of stock, the development o
our water power, tho establishment of th
various classes of manufactories, agricnltu
ral education, Ac. Ac, aro a few of the mal
ters which demand concert of action; otho
topics will suggest themselves readily, a

PERSONS OF ms OWN COLOR.-A most In
ribla and revolting outrage was perp?tr?t
at Mount Vernon, a day or two since, b;
negro named Muck, upon two little wh
children, thi eldest not moro than elev
years ol age. The fiendish act created
intenso excitement in the communi
j which was also shared by tho negro
Tbf; country was scoured in every directi?
and tho monster captured. So great v
tho excitement and indignation of tho p
pie, that it was determined to execute I
prisoner on the spot.
After consultation, however, the case ?
left in the hands of an impromptu ne|
jury, who, after a full hearing, sentent
tho prisoner to be hung, which sentei
was executed ou the spot.

critical condition, but hopes are cutertaii

We extract the following aeeonnt from the
Newborn (N. O.) Journal of Commerce:
TRAGEDY AT KINSTON-GREAT EXCITE?
MENT.-Oar readers will remember that
tbree or four days ago, the gravo of Colonel
Williams, about seven miles of Kinston, was
broken open and bis body exhumed, and
carried no one knows whither. We learn
that the perpetrators were almost immedi?
ately apprehended and lodged in Kinston
jail. On Saturday night, a party of men
compelled tho jailor to deliver tho scoun?
drels over to them, sinco which time they
have not been heard from. The circum?
stances connected with the affair, as wo
learn them from a gentleman who carno
down on thc train last night, wcro as fol?
About 12 o'clock, on Saturday night, the
keeper of the jail was aroused by two men,
who wcro leading another, seemingly tied.
On demanding what they wanted, ho was
told that they had captured another of tho
desecrators of Colonel Williams' romaine,
and wished to incarcerate him. Tho jailor
complied with their request, and led tho
prisoner in. No sooner had he done so than
tho man released himself of his bonds, and,
drawing a revolver, placed it at tho jailor's
head and demanded the prison keys. This
demand was seconded by the two men out?
side, and the ji.ilor was compelled to re?u
quisb tho required articles. No sooner were
tho doors thrown open than twenty or
thirty mounted men surrounded the jail
and commanded the jailor to lead them to
tho men accused of robbing the gravo of
The accused, five in number, ono white
and four colored, were then taken from the
jail, tho keys again placed in possession of
tho jailor, and tho cavalcade marched off in
the direction of the rivor. What became
of the unfortunate prisoners is unknown,
though it is conjectured that they were
taken to the bridge crossing Nense River,
their throats cut, and their bodies east into
the seething waters. This belief was in?
duced by tho fact that the bridgo was dotted
with gore on Sunday morning. Tho jailor
says tho men who forced the jail, were all
white, but were unknown to him. They
wcro probably induced to commit this rash
net, by the threats of the negroes, who pro?
claimed their intention of breaking open
the jail and releasing tho prisoners.
Wo further understand, that on Thursday
night, tho Sheriff of thc County received
information of tho whereabouts of onothei
of the scoundrels couccrned in outragiup
the remains of Colonel Williams, aud sen!
his deputy with a posse, to apprehend him,
When the Sheriff's party approached th<
house where he was concealed and demand
od him to come forth, the demand wa;
replied to by a rifle shot, seriously, if nol
mortally, wounding one of the party. The
door was immediately broken open, thc
desperate villain killed on the spot, and thc
exasperated party, not content with this
burned the cabin over his head. Tho wound
ed mau is still in a precarious condition.

into tho recent disturbance on the Ogeeche
closed yesterday by sending up the prise

Tho testimony from day to day has bee
given in these columns, and we now desir
to call tho uttentiou of the New Yor
Tr ihunc, Philadelphia Prats and, other rad
cal journals North, to the fact that both th
evidenco nuder oath, of white and blacl
and tho decision of thc magistrates thereot
fully sustain tho Savannah Republican in a
it reported about the affair. We did nc
make a solitary statement of facts that :
not sustained by the testimony, while tb
disingenuous and shamefully partisan rt
port of Col. Williams to Gen. Sibley
shown to bo utterly false and groundless.
We also beg to call their attention to tb
fact that while tho insurgents were mo:
ably and ingeniously defended, and ever
thing possiblo brought forward in tho
behalf, not ono witness, white or blacl
could bo produced to testify to a disngro
mont between the negroes and tho plante:

I earnestly recommend to tho kindly con?

and Representatives iu Congress, Sistor
Xavier, of tho religious order of Our Lady
of Mercy, who visits Washington City with
a view of procuring an appropriation from
Congress, for tho rebuilding ot her orphan
asylum, which was destroyed during tho
bombardment of the city.
I was personally cognizant, during my im?
prisonment in Charleston, aud subsequently
whilo I was stationed in that city, of tho
active and unceasing benevolence of tho
Sisters of Morey; their charitable ?nices
being freely dealt out to all who needed
them, without reference to class, condition
or nationality; and I knew of many friends
and acquaintances in the Federal army who
wore the recipients of their beneficent and
kind attentions. Many a sick and wounded
Federal prisoner was indebted to them for
necessary nourishment and attention; and
frequently their dying pillows were soothed
and comforted by the pious cousolations of
tho Sisters of Mercy.
I earnestly hope that they may succeed in
their application to Congress, to enable
them to rebuild their desolated edifice, so
long sedulously devoted to the shelter and
education of tho orphans of Charleston, as
a slight recognition of their unselfish devo?
tion to the alleviation of human suffering.
