COL?MBIA, S. G\_
Saturday Morning, May 22, 1868.
Another li ad leal Hula en the Sou tl?. |i
Tbero Reoms to bo a renewed outcry in
some of the leading radical journals in re?
gard to crime in tho South, which is con?
jectured to ba raised for tho purpose of
furnishing pretexts for still further inter?
f?rence of the Federal Government in the
Southern States. It is a melancholy roiloc
tioa that, fonr years after tho war is ended,
a period us long as the war itself, wc arc still
without that mutual confidence nnd peace
which is tho common desire of true men of
all sections, and tho common interest of
North aud South. Tho Baltimore Sun calls
attention to tho fact, that during all tho
time which has elapsed since the closo of
hostilities, the Southern States have sought
restoration to their relations to the Union
before the war, and have beou opposed and
thwarted at every step, and almost in pre?
cise proportion to their urgeucy for r?con?
ciliation. Tho Now York Tribune is now
sorely exorcised over tho "situation in
Georgia," whioh, it says, "is grave enough
to warrant prompt investigation," tho gru
?vity of the matter comistiug in the fact that
.the Bullock radical party of that State ore
At present outside tho public crib, the most
solemn state of things that loyal imagination
oan conceive. They naturally wish au in?
vasion of Georgia's constitutional rights by
Oongress, and the revolutionizing of the
present order of affairs, so that tho serious
and threatening aspect presented by the
bolts and bars whioh keep them from a mo?
nopoly of all the offices may speedily be re?
moved, and an opportunity given for a tho?
rough "investigation" of the loaves and
fishes from which they have boen so long
debarred. The Tribune, however, does not
confine itself to Georgia, but turns its
broadside upon tho whole South, and has
the hardihood to make such au announce?
ment as this:
**Now wo assert, as our conclusion from
attentive observation of the journals, that
not less than 1,000 persons have been mur?
dered because of their politics in tho Sonth
crn States during tho last year, of whom at
least 9S0 were Republicans, and that not
twenty of tho murderers have been brought
to justice by those whom tho Times is apt
to coll 'the South."
Deliberate and intentional injustice to the
Southern people could alone blind the eyes
of, the author of that monstrous fabrication
to tho folly, as well as wickedness, of pub?
lishing so incredible a falsehood. The Now
York Times calls upon tho Tribune to ex?
hibit the data of its calculation. It says:
"Let us see how this total of 1,000 politi?
cal murders is mado up. With how many
is Virginia chargeable? and tho Carolinas?
and Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana,
Florida, Mississippi and Texas, respective?
ly? Let the particulars bo given, that each
of the States implicated by tho accusation
may have an opportunity of disproving a
charge so seriously affecting the reputation
of its population and the administration of
its laws. Wholesale assertions of the same
nature have been heard before, and invaria?
bly in connection with some sinister and
partisan scheme, but their authors have
rarely attempted the production of proofs."
The Washington Chronicle engages in the
same work of defamation with tho Tribune,
and demands that "tho ascendancy of the
loyal people" shall be preserved, aud thc
machinations of "a revolutionary party"
frustrated. It assumes that to accomplish
this object, the authority which forced
through reconstruction in the first instance
is at liberty to do as it pleases with tho en?
tire South. Yet, it is scarcely a week since
the same journal voluntarily and ardently
testified to the "loyalty" of tho Southern
people. Discussing tho subject of a war
with Great Britaiu, it thus emphatically
"There is no hostility to England in Anio
rica, but there is intense devotion to Ame?
rica. And? all parties unite in this senti?
ment, North and South, East and West.
Even tho Dernooracy, who are now courting
free trade, will not be ready to sustain ii
power which has cheated all parties in th ic
country in turn, and none more than thc
South. Ireland looks with as much interest
on this new complication as Cuba; and i!
the woist comes to tho worst, no force will
be more potent than that represented bj
the men who fought in tho Confederate
army, and who wished success to tho Con
"England would find that war with bei
would bo inoro popular hero than war will
any other nation, for reasons it is not necos
sary to state; thut it would weld all section:

not have occurred to England that th'
Southern pcoplo would, perhaps, bo glad ti
an opportunity to pay her off for encoui
aging them to roly upon her aid in the rt
auouuouing tnem to de?
Yet, with this concession pert upon its
lips that tho Southern people Would giro
their \ifaa in attestation of their loyalty, it
is now engaged in endeavoring to make it
appear that, so far from being loyal, the life
of a loyal mau is not safe in the Southern
Statt-3. "Let us haro peace."
THE CUARTJESTON QUO WA n n ANTO .-Tho
followiug r.ro the points with reference to
the quo rearranto in the ease of the Charles?
ton Aldermen, Mackey and Burrow:
That by an Act of the Genend Assembly
of thc said State, to niter and amend tho
charter of the city of Charleston, passed on
tho 18th day o? December, 1817, it was,
among other things, enacted, "That if auy
person oleited Alderman in said city shall
remove from Hie ward for which he was so
elected, bia ollico shall become vacant, and
a now election bo ordered by tho City Coun?
cil of Charleston."
That David Barrow, heretofore, to wit:
On tho 18th day of May, in the year ISfii).
at Charleston, iu tho County aforesaid, did
uso and exorcise, and from thence continual?
ly afterwards to tho timo of exhibiting this
information, hath thero used and exercised,
and still doth uno nnd oxerciso the office ol'
Alderman of Ward No. 3 in tho city of
Charleston, under and by virtue of au elec?
tion held in the said city of Charleston, on
tho 10th of November, 18G8, and under and
by virtue of an Aot of the Legislature ren?
dering valid tho said election-notwith?
standing that since tho said electioA and the
passage of tho said Act, and prior to tho
said 18th day of May, his said office had
becomo vacant by the removal of the said
David Barrow from the said ward-which j
said office he, the said David Barrow, for
nud during all the time last abov? mentioned,
without any legal warrant of right whatso?
ever, bath usurped, and still doth usurp, 1,1
contempt of justice and in de?nanco of law.
That he, the 6aid Thomas J. Mackey, had
not resided within the said city three years
previous to his election; and that he, tho
said Thomas J. Mackey, was not a resident
of thia State at tho time of ino adoption of
tho constitution thereof, and had not re?
sided in the State ono year after the adop?
tion of the said constitution.
Wherefore the said otlice, liberties, privi?
leges and franchises he, tho said Thomas J.
Mackey, for and during all tbe time last
ubove mentioned, without nuy legal warrant
or right whatsoever, hath usurped, and still
doth usurp, in contempt of justice and in
defiance of law.
In consideration of tho premises, and to
tho end that justice may bo done, the At?
torney-General aforesaid prays that a writ
of quo warranta be directed to ba served
upon tho said Thomas J. Mackey, com?
manding him on a certain day to be and
appear before this honorable Court, and
then and there to show by what anthority
he claims to exercise the office of Alderman
of Ward No. 3 of th? said city of Charles?
ton, and to answer the premises, and to
stand to, perform and abide such order and
judgment therein as to the honorable Court
shall seem meet.

PRESSLEY, LORD Sc INGLESBY,
Speaking of the business before the Cir
cit Court in Abbeville, tho Press says:
"The new bills found by the Grand Jury
involved no cases of very aggravated cha
raeter. No billa were givou out against
those citizens of our District against whom
charges had been preferred of complicity in
the killing of Randolph. The Attorney
General Chamberlain, it is said, was ex
pected up to attend to theso cases, but did
not come, and we have our doubts whether
he ever will come. Tho Grand Jury 'ig
nored' the bill charging Dr. M. C. Taggart,
A. B. Kennedy and John Brooks with the
killing of a negro at Whito Hall, at the
election last fall."
THR "SUNDAY STONE."-In ono of the
English coal mines there ia a constant for?
mation of limestone, cnused by the trick?
ling of water through tho rocks. This wa?
ter contains a great mauy particles of lime,
which are deposited in tho mine, nud aa the
water pusse? oil*, these become hard, and
form limestone. This stone would always
bo white, like marble, were it not that men
aro working in tho mines, and as the black
dust rises from the coal, it mixes with the
soft lime, and in that way a black stone is
formed. In the night, when there is no
coal dust rising, the stone is white; tben
again, the uoxt day, when the minos are nt
work, another black layer is formed, and so
on, alternately, black and white, through
the week, until Sunday comes. Then, if
the miners keep Sunday, a much larger lay?
er of tho white stouo will bo formed than
before. There will bo the whito stone of
Sunday night, and tho whole of Sunday, so
that every seventh day "io whito layer is
about throe times ns tb .k as nay of tho
others. Hut if they work on Sunday, they

ANOTHER GREAT RAILWAY.-Tuero aro in?
dications of railway enterprises projected
on a gigantic seulo throughout the glob??.
In addition to the Pacific railway, which
has just been opened throughout its whole
extent, wo see it stated that tho Turkish Go?
vernment has, within tho last few weeks,
made arrangements for a railway from Con?
stantinople to Trieste, with branch lines to
Belgrade and Sal?nica. Trieste is tho prin?
cipal seaport of the Austrian empire, at the
head of tho Gulf of Trieste, in tho North?
east of tho Adriatic. Tho Allstr?au Lloyd's
Steam Packet Company, formed in 1833,
has fifty or moro steamers plying between
Trieste and the principal ports of the Adri?
atic, tho Levant and tho Black Sea. A
glance at tho map will show what n short
cut is this projected railway between tho
two poiuts, compared with the enormously
circuitous voyago by sea. Trieste is already
connected by railway with Vienna, Venice,
Sec., and its railroad depot buildings are on
a grand scale, tho grounds covering forty
acres. Au association is also said to have
been formed of well-known financiers and
contractors, presided over by tho King of I
tho Belgians, to carry a railway from Europe
to Pekin. Considering the intervening de
Berts and stupendous mountain ranges of
Ch inn, this sc hem o to traverse tho heart
China with a railway i.s quite as audacious
as tho Pacific Railroad. If now tho nations
of Europo would disarm their enormous
military establishments, a course which it is
said will bo urged at tho Ecumenical Coun?
cil in Rome, and put their army appropria?
tions into works of internal improvement,
tho world would be the botter for it. But
it is to bo feared that no recommendation
to that effect will be listened to till tho mil-1

It may bo truthfully said that tho greatest]
of all blessings is health, for without it, it
is impossible to enjoy tho lifo that God hus]
given us. A healthy stomach, a good di?
gestion, a good conscience are requisites so
important in a physical and moral poiut of]
viow to human happiness, that wo presume
no one will question it. To all alike is]
health essential for life's enjoyment and]
pursuits; to young and old, to rich and poor,
to man and woman. Aro you in search o??
wealth? health is essential; do you desire
tflicc and worldly hours? of what avail
would these bo without health? Tho beau?

At a meeting of the State Medical Asso
sociation, held in Charleston on Thursday
last, the following officers were elected: Dr.
A. N. Tulley, of Columbia, President; Dr.
W. C. Horlbeck, of Charleston, First Vice
President; Dr. A. S. Sally, of Ornngebnrg,
Second vice-President; Dr. J. Somers Buist,

P. Porcher, of Charleston, Corresponding

thanks for the unexpected and distinguished
honor conferred upon him, and hoped that
everything would bo done to advance tho
interest of tho association.
TH? NATIONAL HOTEL, COLUMBIA.-The
Charleston Courier speaks as follows of this
"Those who haro occasiou to visit oar
capital havo certainly no reason to complain
on th? score of hotel accommodations.
Prominent among tko flue houses which
Columbia now boasts is tba National Hotel,
of which Mr. Rubert Joyner is proprietor.
Conveniently situuted, its room? are always
clean, comfortable and well kept, and the
table is abundantly supplied with th? best
of everything. Add to this, that tho house
has a most obliging and .".Unitivo clerk, Mr.
P. N. Pains, that the charges are tl ways
moderate, and that tbs livery stables ad?
joining, kept by Mr. Joyner, afford tho
readiest facilities for obtaining vehicles
at any time, and it will be seen that
tho National is, in every respect, a hotel
hard to beat."
WHAT CAN DE DONE IN TOWN.-Yesterday
morning, wo hud the pleasure-and it was
pleasuro, in every tense of the word-of
strolling through ihe kitchen garden at?
tached to the residence of Col. John T.
Sloan, corner of Bull and Pendleton streets.
This model garden is attended to oxclusiTely
by a colored man named George Holt-who
previously belonged to Col. T.-nnder the
superintendence of Miss A. E. Sloan.
Green pens, cabbages, snap beans, beets,
carrots, parsnips, squashes, etc., are pro?
duced in abundance. From a pea patch,
fifteen by forty feet, seven busliels of green
peas have been gathered. The other vegeta?
bles mentioned above aro particularly fine,
and, in tho language of another, wo would
say, "Neighbor, beat these beeta" if you
can. Three or four crops of different kinds
are grown on tho same spot. The tomatoes
are largo and full, and in a short time will
be fit to eat. There is fruit in abundance
on the place, figs, pears and peaches-some
of tho latter-tho nutmeg variety-being
ripo at tho present time. The Colonel keeps
several cows, and not only furnishes his
largo family with milk, but disposes of
sufficient to supply his animals with food.
Taken all in nil, his is a "model home,"
and proves conclusively what can be accom?
plished with a li Uh i energy. The colored
man referred to above is entitled to great
credit; ho does the marketing for the
family, milks and attends to four cows,
runs errands, trims and looks after 1,600
feet of hedge, besides waiting on the tablo
and doing odd jobs; in addition to which
all the necessary carpentering is turned
over to him, with tho certainty of its being
properly attended to.
