8aturday Morning, Joly 31,1869.
"SOUTH CAROLINA.-The great want in
South Carolina, among the white Demo*
craoy, ia organization. Oar personal ex?
porieuco warrants the statement that a
j more thoroughly apathetic, bewildered
and unwieldy population does not exist
on the green earth. It is true they are
in the minority; but so much the more
should they be compact, well-drilled and
unanimous in order to make their influ?
ence felt In th? country, this charge of
supineness bas been hitherto specially
observable; but from the details of the
reoent riot in Charleston, we should say
that the towns are quite as badly demo?
ralized. At this particular time, the
need of organization is supremely urgent.
Already the native and imported wings
of radicalism have begun to separate and
quarrel. This breach is bound to widen,
and, as it widens, a solid Democratic
party can beoome the balanoe of power
and role the State. But constituted as
tho party is at present, without leaders,
without enthusiasm, without sagacity,
without preparation, and without mo?
mentum, matters can only progress from
bad to worse, and leave the State the
prey pf two sets of robbers, in place of
the band of brigands now in authority.
It is high time that Carolinians, in town
and country, should see to this. It is
high time that something was dono with
the scattered elements of strength now
lying dormant or useless iu every section
of the State. If this be not done, South
Carolina may as well make up her mind
to endure much further tribulation, no
matter how much carpet-baggers nud
scalawags wrangle and divide. If one
?!??? the trouble taken to raise a cotton
crop were vouobsafed to save and pro?
tect the State, the most melancholy man
would ere long have occasion to grow
jubilant at the change of affairs.''
The above reflections upon tho white
Democracy of South Carolina are taken
from the Augasta Constitutionalist, and in
common justice to the Democratio party
of our State, we feel constrained to cor?
rect the Constitutionalist upon these re?
marks reflecting upon our political status.
In no Southern State has the organiza?
tion of the Democracy been moro com?
pact and perfect than in South Carolina.
During the last struggle in the general
elections, South Carolina was completely
and carefully canvassed by the leaders
and agents of. the Democratio party, and
with a result which was unexpected even
to the most sanguine. Sixteen of tho
thirty-one Counties of the State went
Democratic, and we hazard the assertion
that, at this moment, there aro by the
greatest proportion fewer white radicals
in South Carolina than in any other of
the Southern States. Thora has been
and still exists the most perfect unity iu
our white Democracy; they have moved
in a thorough and unbroken phalanx,
and wo assert that onr contemporary has
been badly informed when he states tc
the contrary. The white Democracy
here are quiet and undemonstrative, be
cause there is no practical issue immcdi
ately at stake, and to be contested; bul
our neighbor may rest satisfied, that thc
schism in the radical ranks is watchet
with a careful and wary"eye. The per
sonal experience of the Constitutionalist
which warrants the assertion that thi
population of our State is supine, nu
widdy, and bewildered, is, we venture
to say, utterly antagonistic to that of tin
press representative and general informa
tion in South Carolina, and it tells wol
for the minority-which he admits-tba
at the State eleotions tho Democrats car
ried sixteen out of thirty-one Counties
We beg leave to assure tho Constitutional
ist that the Democratic party has botl
enthusiasm, as was evinced by tho unit;
and energy which marked the recent can
voss; momentum, as was indicated by th?
result; that it is amply supplied wit]
leaders, os verified by the plan of actioi
which characterized the late campaign
upon whose sagacity, eloquence and judg
ment, the Democracy rightly put thei
The Constitutionalist muy feel relieve*!
in its forebodings, and may depenc
upon our assertion, that every provisioi
has been mode to preserve the unity c
the Democratic party, to collect it
"scattered elements," and to fight to th
last gasp for supremacy over the scala
wog and carpet-bagger, when tho prope
timo arrives. We as&urno the positio
that at this stage of affairs, tho industr
and energy expended in tho cotton ero
-of which our neighbor speaks so ligh
ly-is doing moro to redeem and reit
state Sonth Carolina, than discussiu
politics and exhausting our efforts Ix
fore the right season is present Whe
that period arrives, wo trust, with rcnewe
and vigorous action, to aohieve now vi<
tories, and add them to our former su<
cesses. Perhaps gratitude is duo to tl
Constitutionalist for its advice and suf
gestion to the white Democracy of Sont
Carolina; but we confess we cannot fei
it. We cnn only rccoguizo crude reflet
tiens, based upon incorrect informatioi
and we humbly submit to our neighb?
our belief iu our capacity to manage ou
own affairs, and assuro him, iu tho
conduct every care and attention sha
be fully bestowed.

"Wind and Water.
TEIUUBLB FLOOD nr TEXAS.- Friday,
this beautiful littlo town preseuted a
soene whioh.ior excitement nod terror,
has rarely been surpassed in (be annals
.f our State, For a week past, the Co?
lorado Iii vor bna been,very nigh, render?
ing it difficult and generally dango rona
to cross even in a skiff, thus cutting off
nearly all communication with Bastrop
and Austin, the stages and mails being
hemmed np and unable to get out.
Thursday night, the good people of La
Grange went to their beds, leaving tbe
river still some ten ox fifteen feat within
its banks, and at 9 o'clock it broke over
its banks above and below, thus throw?
ing two immense tides of water upon the
town. At ll o'clock, the water had met
in the flats or valleys between town aud
the river on the South-west side, and was
swelling very rapidly. At 12 o'clock, it
found its level, and having driven all tho
inhabitants out of the Western portiou of
the town, it began turning over the
smaller houses and floating them away
toward the Gulf. At 1 o'clock, it was
within a blook of the public square, and
rising so fast that it drove the crowds
baok from its edge. Hero tho scene beg?
gared description. Great crowds of wo?
men and cbddren stood at the water's
edge, and with wringing hands and
straining eyes saw their homes filled by
the ruthless flood, and many of thom
swept or turned over where they stood,
while the crash of furniture and smash?
ing of doors aud windows told too horri?
bly the ruin that was going ou within.
Men rushed back and forth on horseback
or afoot, seeking their families, or asking
for assistance to tie a houso already
swimming, or claiming help from tho
idle lookers-on to move their furniture
from those not yet inundated, but were
soon to share the general fate. Wagons
loaded with furniture rattled to and fro
at full gallop, some to the high ground
with their confused mass of household
wares, and others to take off the remain?
ing stores. Before 3 o'clock, tho public
square was a sheet of water. Store doors
were thrown open, and merchants and
clerks strove to save their goods by
piling them in their second stories aud
on their counters, while every man aud
everything available was put into requi?
sition to save the women and children
from tho mad torront, whioh was now
rushing over three-fourths of the town.
But the day sank into tho night, and all
night through efforts never ceased, al?
though in the darkness but little could
be seen, yet the sound of the hauiwci
and saw indicated the ex tempore con?
struction of boats and rafts, while thc
lowing of cattle, the shouting of moo,
the screaming of womon and children,
crying for help, mingled with the in
creasing beach-like roar of the might)
surge, rilled the midnight air. Thej
filled tho imagination with horrible fan
cies, and tho steady rising of the waters
the rapid onrrents rushing around th?
corners, bade them speed with their gooi
work or it would bo too late. A boa
was made of the boards of houses, ant
filled with strong oarsmen, who wool
through the streets and yards search i nj
for those who needed help. There wa
no party distinction; friend and foe allie?
together to meot the common enemy
Slowly, ono after another, they brough
off the few who had "determined to sta;
and meet the fate of their homes," bu
who became terrified when they fount
it so far exceeded their expectations.
Saturday morning came and found th
little town, which but the day befor
looked so fair and quiet in the cont:
dence of its security, now deluged wit
a remorseless flood; for on the sqnnr
and in every store stood four or five fee
of water. It was wholly deserted, an
all the inhabitants had fled to tho big
grounds and hills in tho Northeru an
North-eastern suburbs. There was
soeue of general confusion. Every bous
was filled with the fugitives, not oui
homeless, but without food-for the
had not timo to tako provisions wit
them; or, if they had, they were tc
terrified to think of it. The scone wt
terrible. For fifteen miles, as far as th
eye could reach to the North, West an
South, tho country was ono uubroke
sheet of water, except ono hill, of som
two and a half aores, about five milt
All of Babb's Prairie was under watc
and a fair estimate may bo had of i
depth when we say that tho water read

Captain McDow's large residence, whic
stands on the general level of the p rai ri
Hero and there, away in the dist ano
among tho clumps of oaks whoso matte
branches lapped in the glassy Hoot
might bo soen the roofs of houses bi
yesterday occupied by prosperous plan
ers. Nearor. above and below on tl
South aud Eastward, the zig-zag trac
of the river was marked by the rush i
great oaks and cotton woods that stoc
for years. Side by side with these,
wild confusion, floated the roofs <
houses and the dead forms of catt!
that told too well the devastation th
had gone ou above and in the whole vu
ley of tho river. Never before had
country looked so prosperous, crops
well grown, farms so well tilled. Eve
circumstance seemed to have aided
build up the hopes and prospects of eat
planter, promising unexampled prospei
ty to reward him for the year of au
burnt toil. * * *
As yet tho amount of damago to tl
town and inhabitants cannot bo cs
mated. Yet it is $100,000 surely; whi
the damage done the crops and count
it would take millions to recover.
While wo thus desoribe LaGrang
have we thought justly of tho sist
towns-Bastrop above and Columbus b
low-both on lower ground, and frc
whom communication is cut off? V
can only baso our opinion upon the c
lamity before us, and imagine how f
greater it is with thom. The wires o
down between here, Bastrop and Austi
therefore, no news from either.
This overflow, which has never be
equaled on tho Colorado within the h
tory of Texas, has ruined Fayette Cou
ty and it? prospects. The greatest firm?
ing section waa along the river bottom?, !
on both side*, and now that ali these are ?
destroyed, or nearly destroyed, it will be I
as much aa the inhabitants eon do to
save food abd raiment for the ensuing
year, without expecting to make money.
What will be the story from the lower
river, we do not yet know; wo may ex
peot the worst
We have no news, definitely, from the
other side of the river yet. As the ques?
tion may be asked, it is strange to say
that no person has been drowned, so far
as we have beard. Rumors are afloat of
men being seen to float down the current
of the river on house-tops, yostcrday.and
day before, supposed to have come from
above. It is not impossible, nor yet oer
.ainly true. All business will be at an
end here for some time-uutil the town
is righted and ''cleaned out."-LaGrange,

TORNADO IN MINNESOTA.-A corres?
pondent of the St. Cloud Journal,
writing from Sank Centre, sa3's:
"About twelve miles South-west from
here, in the town of Raymond, in Stearns
County, was tho dwelling-house of a
well-to-do and respectable farmer. Mr.
Richard Richardson, formerly of Rico
County, in this Stato. At the time of
the uommenoement of tho storm, on
Friday night, he and his family wero
quietly enjoying their home, with others
of the neighborhood, who wore stopping
over night with them. About 12 o'clock,
Mr. Richardson remarked to hin . wife
that he feared they would havo a hard
storm. Before ho could rouse the family
or even make any preparations himself,
the tornado burst upon them with such
forco oe to tear to pieces and scatter
about for a distance of a quarter of a
milo tho entire house and its contents,
together with the inmates. There wero
at tho timo twelve persons iu the build?
ing, tho most of them up stairs asleep.
It was a block or log-house, sixteen by
twenty-four, one and a half stories high,
well dove-tailed at tho corners, and
pinned with two-inch oak pins. Mr.
and Mrs. Richardson and one small
ohild alone remained in tho ruins of tho
house. John, the eldest son, twenty-two
years old, was carried thirty-four rods
and dropped on tho ground so badly
bruised and mangled that there is but
little hope of his recovery. George, the
second son, thirteen years old, was also
carried thirty rods, and had his right
ankle brokon, the bono protruding
through tho flesh. .He is also badly
bruised in many places. Willie, tho
third sou, three years of nge, was borne
some thirty rods, and hurled to the
ground so badly injured that ho lived
only n few moments. Two other chil?
dren (little girls) wero taken from their
bed, twisted up in their bcd clothing,
and dropped on the opposite side cf the
building from the rest, unharmed. Mrs.
R. received some injuries on and about >
tho hea/l and face, but nothing serious.
This is about thu extent of the injuries
received by the family of Mr. R. Miss
Annie Wilson, a school-teacher, stopping
at the house of Mr. R., having some
fears at the time, had rison, dressed, and
was sitting up when the wind struck tho
building. She was carried with the rest,
mixed in with broken pieces of timber,
boxes, barrels, cupboards, trunks, bed?
ding and furniture, and the entire con?
tents of the upper part of tho house,
thirty-seven rods, and deposited in the
wheat field. She was so badly bruised
that there is little hope of recovery.
Liberty Raymond, twenty-two years old,
eldest son of L. B- Raymond, from
whom the town ~>i Raymond takes its
name, was among the unfortunate. He
was carried about: the same distance as
Mr. R.'s eldest p.>n, and so badly man?
gled that ho only survived a short time.
The soene at tho house when the day?
light came is much easier imagined than
described, Mr. R. being the only one
left after the disaster to collect in tho
dead and dying, and to caro for the in?
jured ones. After looking for and find?
ing tho most of them in the midnight
gloom, it being very dark and stormy,
he proceeded to tho neighbors to give
the alarm and procure assistance. All
of tho medical aid was soon on the road
to the scene of distress."

Important work. - The statements of
"Lox" were made with each apparent
confidence and sincerity, that we have
been induced to seek information from
a reliable source, and have come to the
conclusion that these assertions of
"Lux," concerning what he is pleased to
term the "ring," are, to say the least,
greatly exaggerated. We understand
that a simple statement of facts has
been furnished for publication by the
Executive Committee, and for au expla?
nation in detail that may be referred to
by our reader?. It is weil to state, how?
ever, that the Exeoutivo Committee
awarding the contract consisted of Go?
vernor Scott, General Harrison und
George S. Cameron, Esq., all of whom
oonourred in tho arrangement finally
effected ; and that Mayor Pillsbury is not
a member of the Executive Committeo,
was not present, and had no connection
whatever with this contract, as hus been
insinuated by "Lux." The several con?
tractors offering proposals to build this
road were treated with tho courtesy,
fairness and impartiality usually accord?
ed in such matters. Tho Executive
Committee, having in view the enlarge?
ment of their first mortgage in order to
cover actual cost of construction, the
importance of au early commencement
and rapid completion of the work, deem?
ed it judicious to chango their first pro?
gramme, and to negotiutc for a contract
which would enable thom to effect these
several objects without using or hypothe?
cating oby portion of their present
assets. To do this it was necessary that
a largo amount in cash and in work
should be advanced by the contractor,
and upon such terms all the bidders
were requested to remodel their propo?
sals, which proposition was acceded to
and acted upon by several. In their
second proposal -, however, all but Cres?
well & Co. (to whom the contract was
awarded) increased tho prices at least
ten per cont, above their origual bids,
and required that bonds of tho company
should bo placed in such position us to
be hypothecated for their uso and bene?
fit, whilst Creswell & Co. reduced their
original prices at least ten to twelve per
cent., thus making them the lowest bid?
ders, nt the same timo agreeing to make
the necessary advances to the company,
without obtaining the possession of a
single bond for nine mouths. Under
this arrangement, the bonds of the com?
pany will remoin in tho absolute posses?
sion of the Executive Committee. It
would bo manifestly improper for the
compnny to publish to thc world at this
time the preciso figures and prices foi
work, as tho contract is yet in embryo,
and many details are still to be nego?
tiated. We can state, however, that the
contract as awarded will not exceed the
estimates of Chief Engineer Lowe so
much as eight per cent, in the different
classifications of work. This increase
above the estimates would hardly seem
to be an extravagant allowance for tho
unusual advantages offered the company
by these contractors, and tbe very large
advance to me made by them would in?
dicate their ability to faithfully perform
We are not the apologist of Governor
Scott, as our readers very well know,
neither is it our province to defend him
against these attacks upon his integrity
au? want of sincerity in professing to be
a iriend cf tho Blue Kidge Railroad.
But, nevertheless, his public messages
and private acts, so far as we ?;an judge,
abundantly prove that ho is an -ions for
the completion of this important enter?
prise. We are assured upon high au?
thority that Governor Scott has always
manifested the utmost zeal and activity
since be came into office for the best in?
terests of the road. Further than this,
it would be impossible for us to excul?
pate him from the damaging charges
now preferred against him, but as we
hove shown that the writer is not infalli?
ble in other respects, is it not fair to pre?
sume that he is liable to error concern?
ing these allegations?
SECRETARY BOUTWBZIXJ RAPPED OVER
THE KNUCKLES.-The Albany Evening
Journal, Republican organ, raps Secreta?
ry Boutwoll over the knuckles for his in?
terference in the matter of tho election
in Tennessee, as follows: "Has not the
Secretary made a mistake? What is
there to warrant his interference with a
quarrel purely local? So far as Republi?
canism io concerned, both of the candi?
dates for Governor in Tennessee have
equal claims to recognition. Each was
a rebel when he supposed that rebellion
was likely to succeed and to ally the
State with tho Confederates. Each be?
came converted under the pressure of
self-interest. And each has sinco acted
with tho party, supporting all its mea?
sures, including emancipation, investi?
ture of tho negroes with citizenship and
establishment of equal rights as a consti?
tutional principle." We can hardly
imagine what bond of sympathy there
exists between Secretary Boutwell and
Colonel Stokes. Their ideas in regard
to the social status of Sambo being so
widely different-the former bolieviug
him to bo au image fit to worship, and
tho othor to possess a soul not flt to be
damned. Politics, however, make
strange bed-fellows. We repeat our con?
viction that Boutwell is doing well
enough with the national money bags;
but, in the words of ono of the most re?
spectable organs of his party, "What is
there to warrant his interference with a
quarrel puroly local?"

WHAT TUE WORD COOLIE MEANS.
Most Americnus and Europeans, who
are unacquainted with Chinese life, ima
giuo that thc word coolio embraces in its
meaning all the population of thc Chi?
nese Empire which is devoted to agricul?
ture and the various departments of pro?
ductive industry. This is au error. The
word coolie is Bengalie, and signifies la?
borer, and is not Chinese at all. It is
used by the populations of tho seaboard
towns, who, for the most part, speak, in
common with the foreign residents, what
is called "Pigeon Euglisb," to designate
n particular class of employees. There
aro "coolieriggers," "cooliacarpenters,"
"coolie deck hands," "house coolies,"
&c, but they form a separata class from
tho population around them. In like
manner the word mandarin is generally
supposed in this country and iu England
to be a Chinese term, but it is not. It
is also "Pigeon English," and is derived
from the Portuguese word "mandar," to
command. Being accepted by tho fo?
reigners of the seaboard as entirely satis?
factory, tho Chineso themselves, who
tako kindly to tho absurdities and facili
of tho "Pigeon English" for tho transac?
tions of business, have adopted it into
their vocabulary.-New York Herald.
