COLUMBIA, S. C.
Saturday Morning, August 14,1869.
pRoscnrPTioN.-Who has not read the
groans of Forney and other radical edi?
tors, when they hare heard of a negro
discharged from employment because he
Toted contrary to bis employer's wishes?
It waa a shameful outrage; a disgrace to
t&e country; an evidence of a rebellious
spirit; a proof that the State in which it
ooo o rr ed needed further reconstruction.
Yet Forney's Chronicle, ot Wednesday,
coolly says :
"On Saturday last, Secretaries Robe?
son and Rawlins were visited by a com?
mittee from the Pennsylvania Republi?
can State Contrai Committee, who peti?
tion for the discharge from office of n
number of Democratic politicians in the
Philadelphia navy yard and arsenal.
They recommend persons to fill any va?
cancies that ni ay be made. Tho Secre?
taries promised to examine into the
Yon see, these men aro white, and have
no right to vote as they please, according
to Forney's idea.
THE DOOM OP THH RADICAL PAKTT.
The moro sagacious and honest newspa?
pers of the Republican party openly ad?
mit that the power of the organization is
broken, and its rule almost at an end.
The New York Sun says:
"The Republican party seems to be
passing through a most dangerous crisis.
Tho Southora olectiona aie all against it,
and if tho current is not changed, its
doom ic certain. Three causes are work?
ing for the destruction of this great
party; the conspicuous failure of Grant's
ndminis trat ion; the universal amnesty
notions of the Hon. Horace Greeley; and
the instability of the negro vote."
After exposing the utter imbecility of
Grant's administration, showing how
impossible it is for the Republican party
to hold control of a single Southern
State except by keeping the whites dis?
franchised, and alluding in mournful
terms to the unreliable character of the
negro vote, the Sun makeB this emphatic
"The recent elections in the South,
therefore, do not more clearly indicate to
the Democracy the road by whioh they
are to achieve a national victory in 1872,
than they point out to the Republicans
the men and the measures thereby their
doom is already sealed."
HEAVY.-The war of words between
the Maokoys and Congressmen Sawyer
and Bowen, is growing very bitter. The
Netos, of yesterday, contains a long com?
munication from T. J. Mackey, and tho
Courier another from A. G. Mackey. T.
J. sums up his obarges against Bowen,
1. That C. C. Bowen stole a valuable
set of faro checks from a gambler in this
oity, whioh cheeks were sold by Bowen
in New York, where they were identified
and ultimately recovered by the owner.
2. That C. C. Bowen was imprisoned
in Castle Pinokey in 1867, by Governor
Scott, then Assistant Commissioner of
the Freedmen's Bureau, on the charge
of misappropriating the funds of thc
3. That C. C. Bowen, then Captain oi
the 21st Batallion Georgia Cavalry, was
tried by court-martial, found guilty, and
cashiered for forging pay-rolls, the result
being announced in general orders from
Gen. Beauregard's headquarters.
4. That C. C. Bowen was arrested
upon the charge of having planned thc
murder of Col. White, at Georgetown,
S. C., in November, 1864; that ho escap?
ed punishment by the flight of his ac?
complice, and was released from jai!
when the Federal troops took possessio!
of Charleston in 1865.

relation to the University of Sooth Caro?

circumstance-the mixturo of black and

such as the LeContes, aro seeking chairs

A STBANGE INCIDENT OF THE LATE WAR
BROUGHT TO LIGHT.-While our uewly

-Mr. Maxwell, Colonol of the First

engaged iu his office, a tall, military
looking gentleman walked in, whom ho
instantly recognized as Mr. Henry E.

Siuce that day up to yoatorday, we

A NOVEL PLAN TO KILL THE COTTON

a newly discovered plan to destroy tho
caterpillar on the cotton plant:
"A photographist, by name ll. B.
McCallum, I believe from Tennessee,
experimented while hore upou his theo?
ry of killing caterpillars. He, together
with a few citizens, visited tho fields of
S. M. McCoy, and Inglis aud Thomas,
used his vapor with so much success that

"A strong solution of chemicals uro
thrown upon the plant, killing tho cater?
pillar immediately, with no injurious
effects to the plant nor to tho laborers in

RROOVEBT OF A LOST DI*??*1> Bnio>
THBOUOH THE DBEAM OF A NJSOEO QIBX..
A few night? ago, a lady, while tating a
Sleasure walk with her ? niant child alo Dg
offeraon street, lost a valuable diamond
ring from her finger in some unacoounta
blo way. Dili ge ut and extensive search
was made throughout the neighborhood,
but without any dew to tho ring, and the
lady gave it up as gone "for g<)od nnd
all." Beforo day-light the following
morning the lady was surprised by the
culls of nek nurse, a small negro girl. On
being admitted to her mistress, the girl,
who had not heard of the ring being
lost, said sho had just had a.dr?atn, in
which she was apprised when, wbero and
how the jewel had been lost, and that if
allowed she felt sure she could find it.
Sbe then described tho place and man?
ner in which tho ring disappeared, and
begged her mistress to go with her nud
teat the dream. This strange circum?
stance was made known to the house?
hold, but nil treated it with tho utmost
incredulity. It was afterward concluded
to humor the girl, however, and sbe and
several whito members of the fnini'y pro?
ceeded to tho designated spot, mofe than
100 yards from tho house. Hero the
dreamer told her mistress that, as direct?
ed in her dream, sho must drop another
ring, sud it would roll as a guido to tho
missing one. A plain gold rifg was
banded tho girl; sho let it fall, and sure
enough it rolled aud stopped within two
inches of tho lost diamond ring, which
had got into a crevice between two
bricks of the pavement. It may be ima?
gined that the ring-hunters were some?
what astounded at tho miracle. Thoy
did not pause to inquire whether pr not
the girl was influenced by the anticipat?
ed eclipse, but sho obviously eclipsed all
the little niggers they had seen. Her
own astonishment was greater than that
of all tho rest. Our informant avows
that there is not the least fiction about
this curious dream and its lucky result.

***** \ye j,a(j wandered for
many hours through tangled forests or
Tropical shrubs and trees, some of them
emitting a most delicious and invigorat?
ing odor, when we suddenly came upon
a largo and well-cultivated plantation, in
tho centro of which were several build?
ings. Entering these, we found them to
be the "press houses," stills, ?c., where
tho sugar-cane is crushed for the manu?
facture of St. Croix Rum. Over 100
coolies were at work, and the smell from
the fermentiug vats was very exhilarating
and pleasant. We were shown through
tho entiro establishment, and learned
that all the Ram here produced was
shipped to Messrs. P. H. Drake Sc Co.,
New York, to be made into their cele?
brated PLANTATION BITTERS. The pecu?
liar good effects of this Ram-whioh is
the purest and best in the world-are
well known. Not a single oase of Dys?
pepsia, Fever and Ague, Consumption,
or any such disease can be found on this
Island, (except of invalids, who come
ero for their health, and they are almost
always oured.) Combined with Calisaya
Bark, Cascarilla, and other important
ingredients, this Ram becomes PLANTA?
TION BITTERS; and sorely no finer Tonic
and general Family Remedy was ever
seen. The combination of these Bitters
was first discovered here many years
ago, and all the Natives swear by PLAN?
TATION BITTERS, and say "there is no?
thing like it." Judging by the robust
health of thc witnesses, I am certain
their testimony is true. * * R. S. T.
