"WeeUly Review of tb? Stale Pim,
The Winnsboro News, of the 28th,
under the caption of "Concession cou?
sis tent, necessary and harmless," repeats
the idea before advanced, that since
"ours is a simple majority government,
both Stat? and Federal," virtuous and
wise elements can become efficacious in
it only by getting on the side of the ma?
jority, or by getting the majority on
their side. Take the Government as it
is, and get the control of it by getting a
majority, says the News. And the News
adds that, "as one of the means to this
end, the right of negroes to vote and
hold office- mast be at once, and not too
The Charleston Gazette, on the subject
of Cbiueso labor, argues that the South
needs not so mach a hireling, transient
labor, as a settled, substantial popula?
tion. Wo want, says the Gazette, active,
hardy emigrants to come among us, and
make permanent homes upon our soil.
It opposes the introduction of Chinese,
and particularly the coolie class, and
writes itself upon the record as in favor
of the interests of tho white man.
The Darlington Southerner repeats its
protest against filling the South with
Chinese, and expresses itself satisfied
with the negro as a laborer.
The Barnwell Sentinel regards the an?
tagonism of races as a matter that can?
not be avoided, and predicts that all the
efforts now making will be unavailing to
counteract it. Upon the subject of the
duration of radicalism, the Sentinel is
satisfied that it involves a state of things
which,, from the' nature of the case,
cannot long last. .
The Barnwell Journal comments upon
the heavy taxation that has been imposed
upon the people, and referring in par?
ticular to the land tax, argues that this
will have the effect ?at onto to check
immigration, and thus retard the gene?
The Orangeburg News insists upon it
that the Democratic party is powerless
for good-cannot redeem tho State-that
this is the work of tho conservativo Re?
The Anderson Intelligencer, in some
judicious remarks upon the recent Na?
tional Labor Convention, says:
"We are not an advocate of Chinese
immigration; on tho contrary, our pre?
dilections are decidedly in favor of lot?
ting the heathens remain in their own
celestial empire. Bat there are nume?
rous people in the South who desiro to
make a fair trial of Chinese labor, and
we are quite willing to allow them the
privilege of experimenting in this or any
other manner they may see proper, so
that it is not detrimental to the country's
interests. .In a word, wo embrace fully
the Democratic doctrine of 'free trade'
in this matter of Chinese immigration,
and only drop the hint concerning this
action of the Labor Convention for tho
benefit of itu adherents."
The Charleston News says:
"The advantages and disad vantages of
% conservative or liberal Republican
movement in South Carolina, similar to
tho Wulker movement in Virginia ami
the Seater movement in Tennessee, ure
now thoughtfully discussed by the press
of the State. Tho extracts which we
mako from tho leading articles in the
different papers show tho way that the
current of feeling is now sotting, nod
provo that ut present public sentiment is
opposed to having any third party. Two
parties uro thought to be enough, and a?

opinion that there is no pressing need of

No quality either in a mau or in n
journalist is moro to be desired than in?
dependence. It is ono of the element'
of a manly character. Nor is this ad?
mirable virtue inconsistent with tho partv
connections of a paper. In a country
like ours parties are a necessity, and c
journal, if it have any political charac
ter, must identify itself with one or tht
other, according to its convictions. Bul
this need not interfere with the inde
pendenco of the journalist. Upon thc
New York World being advised to sevei
its party connections and bo independ
ent, it replied with much force: "Th<
World 'knows a trick worth two of that.
It can maintain its party connectioni
and bo independent."
Again, a journal should follow its owi
judgment-provided it has oue-and no
allow itself to be influenced by this mai
and that man. If it have strong convie

should bo pursued without referenco t<
conflicting advice. Otherwise, as tin

WeiiaVe A edel red 'froth- MWBSTB. Bryan
& McCartor a copy of this work, which
has excited considerable attention. John
Stewart Mill is regarded one of the pro?
foundest of English writers and think?
ers, and the advocates of women's rights
have no champion ?nore ablo and distin?
guished than air. M?h His theory is
that the relation, which has existed evor
since the world began between man and
woman is all wrong. He holds "that tho
principle which regulates the existing
social relations between tho two sexes
the legal subordination of ono sex to the
other-is wrong in itself, and now ono
of the chief hindrances to human im?
provement; and that it ought to bo re?
placed by a principle of perfeot equality,
admitting no power or privilege on the
ono side, nor disability on the other."
This is a bold proposition, as any pro?
position must bo which is evidently at
variance with a state of society and a
class of views which seem heretofore to
have been everywhere current. But
coming, as this proposition does, from a
writer like John Stuart Mill, it is at least
curious and instructive to read what he
has to tul vaneo OD this subject. Certain
it is that in this country, as well as in
Europe, the matter of woman's rights
her position and responsibilities-has
been of late attracting much attention.
"We refer our readers to Mr. Mill's essay.
Tho whole case is closely aud elaborately
argued, and will repay examination. As
for ourselves, wo have no hesitation in
conceding that tho law, as it stands-as
respects the rights of married men-is
sadly defectivo and often permits tho
grossest injustice td tho*wife or mother.
But ns to the general proposition of Mr.
Mill, that there is no reason why women
should not vote, hold office, fill our legis?
lative halls, ?tc., we confess that wo aro
hardly ripe for that wholesale change in
the social and political world. Wo rather
incline to tho idea suggested iu Milton's
descriptive lines, wherein he remarks:
"For contemplation, he and valor formed;
For softness, she and sweet attrative grace."
If any one, however, would like to see
a sinewy and close argumenten favor of
woman's absolute rights-legal, personal,
political-let him rend Mr. Mill's essay.
SAD ACCIDENT-A Yo csa MAIUUED
LADY KTLLED.-A correspondent writing
from Fairfield, Benton County, Mo.,
August 20, furnishes the following par?
ticulars of a sad accident, by which a
young married lady, just from Weat Vir?
ginia, was almost instantly killed:
"A sad accident occurred near herc
last evening. Thc Southern bound stage,
containing four passengers-n yonng
married couple named Moore, a lady with
two small children, and a gentleman
had passed the post offioo nbout three
quarters of a mile, when the stage ran
over a stump, throwing the driver from
his seat, and frightening tho horses so
that they ran away, dragging tho driver
some two or threo rods before ho conld
regain his feet. When he did so ho en?
deavored to stop them by running around
a tree with tho lines; this gave a sudden
jerk to tho lines, which caused them to
break, and the horses then spod on their
way with the stago and its living freight
of human beings. Tho two gentlemen
jumped out safely, but ono of the ladies
(Mrs. Moore) in ]amping from the stage
caught her hoop-skirt in the brake, and
was thrown to tho ground and dragged
some 250 yards before being released.
Every partido of clothing was stripped
from her body except her shoes and
stockings and a narrow strip of her un?
der-dress around the shoulders.
"I reached the scene of tho accident a
few moments after its occurreuco, and
found tho husband supporting tho hoad
of his young and golden-haired bride,
his own clothing saturated with tho
warm blood that flowed from the many
wounds upon her fair young head, and
moaning as if his heart would break.
Sho was still living when I roached the
scene, but was past all human aid, and
in a few moments afterwards breathed
her last, just as the moon roso above the
tree tops, throwing a flood of soft, pity?
ing light upon that inanimate form,
and revealing the agony of thc young
..Mr. and Mrs. Moore were from West?
ern Virginia, and were the vanguard of
several families who are expecting to
settle in this part of tho country. De?
ceased was about eighteen years of age,
and was within twelve miles of her desti?
nation when the accident occurred. Tho
other lady romained in tho stage, closely
holding her two children in her arms,
and was not hurt in the least."
Sidney Smith, in his work on moral
philosophy, speaks in this wise of what
mon lose for tho want of a little brass,
as it is termed: "A great deal of talontis
lost to the world for tho want of a little
courage. Every day sends to the grave
a number of obscuro men, who have only
remained in obscurity bocauso their
timidity has prevented them from mak?
ing a first effort, and who, if they could
have boen induced to begin, would in all
probability havo gone great leugths in
tho career of fame. The fact is, that in
ordor to do anything in this world worth
doing, wc must not stand shivering on
tho bank, thinking of tho cold and
danger, but jump in and scramblo
through as well as wo can. It will not
do to bo perpetually calculating risks and
adjusting tho chances."

sions do good if* rhey^afe' hot mndo thc
occasion of useless and angry divisions:
"It is especially cheering to note the
conciliatory spirit of the Uni',? and
American, which argues its points with
moderation and ability. But-if it will
not consider it discourteous of us if we
venture to make a suggestion-we should
like it better if it could see the wisdom
of using the latitude which its position
gives it to murk out in advance some of
those obvious general principles and
measures upon which the Democratic
party must stand ns a national organiza?
tion. Its editors cannot be blind to the
advantages of liberalism iu the South.
They cannot fail to see tho drift of the
currents which are sweeping forward and
not backward. We look to the South
for counsel. It has sacrificed much. It
hus learned much through its sacrifices.
It ought to be brave, just and sagacious,
not afraid to take the lead and to force
tho rest to follow. Thora is no victory
in dead issues. Nothing short of the
Napoleonic will put the South at the
front again. None of the old fixities are
models. Wo want "new vigor-not a
new party"-fresh ideas and vital ener?

room of thut which we propos? to dis

stand still, for this is a moving ago and
tho pcoplo will not submit to be bored
with platitudes about dead issues."
Bow LEGS AND KNOCK KNEES.-Bowed
legs and knocking knees are among the
commonest deformities of humanity;
and wise mothers assert that the crook?
edness in either caso arises from tho
afflicted one having been put upon his
or her feet too early in babyhood. But
a Manchester physician, Dr. Crompton,
who has watched for tho true cause,
thinks differently. He attributes tho
first mentioned distortion to a habit
some youngsters delight in of rubbing
the sole of one foot against that of the
other; some will go to sleep with the
soles pressed together. They appear to
enjoy tho contact only when the feet aro
naked; they dwn't attempt to make it
when they are socked or slippered. So
tho remedy is obvious-keep tho baby's
soles covered. Knocking knees the doc?
tor ascribes to a different childish habit
-that of sleeping on the side, with one
leg tucked into the hollow behind the
other. Ho has found that where one
leg has been bowed inwards more than
the other, the patient has always slept
on one side, and the uppermost member
has been the most deformed. Hore the
preventive is to pad tho insides of tho
knees so as to keep them apart, and let
the limbs grow freely their own way.

Mn. PEABODY AND WASHINGTON COL

between that woncttr and Ijfagara:
"To an observer of both places, a com?
parison is naturally suggested between
the Natural Bridge and Niagara Falls in
respect of-the sublime and the beautiful;
and, indeed, as in this respect the two
greatest works of nature on this conti?
nent, they may well be used aa illustra?
tions in our American schools of (esthet?
ics. The first is unique in its aspects of
nature with the proportions of art. In
its expressions of power, in its concen?
tration of emotion, as when wo look nt
it distinct or complete, it is truly sub?
lime; and its effect is alleviated (for it is
a maxim in aesthetics that tho sublime
cannot be long sustained) by the pictu?
resque scenery which surrounds it. It is
a greater natural curiosity and more
wonderful than Niagara, although it lacks
the clement) of sublimity which the
other has in sound, and of the visible
actual struggle iu which it displays the
powers of nature. Niagara is a living
thing, while the Natural Bridge is monti'

as allied to the terrific-in contemplating
it we are overwhelmed with ?sense of our
insignificance; while thc Natural Bridge
associates tho sublime with tho pleasiug
and curious, and not transporting us as
violently as Niagara, entertains us more
equably, and dismisses us, we think, with
moro distinct and fruitful perceptions of
tho grandeur and beneficence aud variety
of nature which have been distributed in
DRUNK.-Young man, did you ever
stop to think how that word sounds?
Did you ever think what misery and
woe you brought upon your friends,
when yon degraded your manhood by
gettiug drunk? O! it ina fearful thing
to trample under foot the high claims
that God and mau have upon you.
Drunk! How it rings in the ear of a
loving wife! How it makes the heart of
a fond mother bleed! How it crushes
out tho hopes of a doting father, and
brings reproach aud shame upon a loving
sister! Drunk! See him as bc leans
against some friendly house. He stands
ready to fall into the open jaws of hell,
unconscious OS to his approaching fate.
The wife, with tearful eyes and aching
heart, sits at the wiudow to hear her hus?
band's footsteps;but alas! they come not.
He is drunk! Tho husband, the parent,
is drunk, spending his time and money
when he should bent hume, enjoying the
pleasures aud comforts of tho homo cir?
cle, is drunk! He is spending the means
of support for liquor, while his family is
starving for bread; his children suffering
for clothing. Drunk! His reputation is
gone, gone! His friends, ono by our,

EXCITEMENT AND SHORT LI?E.-The
deadliest foo to man's longevity is an un?
natural and unreasonable excitement.
Every man is born with a certain stock
of vitalit}- which cannot bo increased,
but which may be husbanded or expend?
ed as rapidly as ho deems best. Within
certain limits ho has choice, to live fast
or slow, to live abstemiously or intense?
ly, to draw his little amount of life over
a large space, or oondeuso it into a nar?
row one; but when his stock is exhausted
he has no moro. Ho who lives abste?
miously, who avoids all stimulants, takes
light exercise, never overtasks himself,
indulges no exhausting passions, feeds
his mind and heart on no exciting mate?
rial, has no debilitating pleasures, lets
nothing mille his temper, keeps his
"account with God and mau squared
up," is sure, barring accidents, to spin
out his life to the longest limit which it
is possible to attain; while he who lives
intensely, who feeds on high-seasoned
food, whether material or mental, fa?
tigues his body or brain by hard labor,
exposes himself to inflammatory disease,
seeks continual excitement, gives loose
reign to his passion, frets at every trou?
ble, and enjoys littlo repose, is burning
the candle at both ends, anti is sure to
shorten his days.
A carious* discovery was made at Cra?
cow tho Giber day during tho renovation
of the monument of King Casimir the
Great, tho last mendier of tho Piast
dynasty, known in Polish history as "the
King of the peasants and the Jews."
Ono of the workmen having struck tho
pedestal with his hammer in order to test
its strength, several bricks fell out, leav?
ing an opening through which the inte?
rior of the pedestal, which is hollow, was
clearly visible. On enlarging tho open?
ing it was found that Casimir's coffin,
which rested on four iron bars, had
rotted away, and that tho remains had
fallen to the ground. On tho skull was
a crown of gilt copper, in the shape of a
plain circlet surmounted by fivo lilies.
Near this was a silver-gilt sceptre, and
close to his feet a pair of largo copper
spurs. Tho body was covered with a
shroud of thick silk, which is still in
tolerably good condition. A subscription
has been opened in order to make a new
coffin for tho remains of this celebrated
hero, and offerings have already been
received for this purpose from ?ll parts

"How SIR LOVED HIM."-Madame de

side of forty, rich, good-looking, ;and
boh?mienne. Her husband,' some seor o
of years her senior, waa ordered fix
months a^o to Algeria, where ho holds
an official post, j Madame do B-,
whose health did hot permit her to ac?
company him, remained in her villa on
the banks of the Seino; she continued to
keep house, gave balls and parties, nud
appeared in no way grieved at the cruel
separation from her liege lord ordained
by the official fates. Things went on
some time in the most irreproachable
manner. At length, however, tho soli?
tude of singlo bliss began to weigh on
tho lady's mind, and, needless to go into
particulars, ended in a liaison with n
dashing Lothario of thirty summers.
One flue morning she announced tho de?
cease of her husbaud, producing ut the
same time a forged cert i tiente, of death.
The funeral services of tho lamented de?
ceased, who had been buried in Algoria,
woro scarcely over when the friends of
tho widow received une lettre dc faire port
announcing her marriage with the Lo?
thario aforesaid. The honeymoon went
off sweetly onough, and tho couplo had
entered on what the French called la
lune du desenchantement, when husband
No. 2 received a lotter from Algeria in?
forming him that husbaud No. 1 was not
dead, and was en route to France. Ma?
dame do B-thereupon decided to dis?
pose of tho obnoxious old mau tn a sum?

him a kindly thrust as he entered the
house. Everything went off ns well as a
play. The old mau arrived from Alge?

was going up stairs to his wife's room, j
when he suddenly gave a shriek and
dropped down dead. Tho only thing
now to do was to get rid of the budy be

affair. Husband No. 2 was enlisted into I

j natiug entreaties of his guilty paramour,
took the body tied up iu a sack and j

j fell in himself at the saine time, and was

j Tho New York correspondent of the

i that Mrs. Stowe has been snapped up by
! llobert Bonner, at thc rute ot ???U? a co?
lumn, payable in gold, to write the "true
story" of all the "separated" wives of
distinction, from Charles Dickens' to
Charles Sumner's, including Matilda
Heron, and not forgetting Sarah Ann
Leslie. Her "true story" of Lady By?
ron has met with such re markable and
instant success, is so indicative of wo?
manly intuition into character and deli?
cate appreciation of private motives, that
I should not be surprised wcro that
editor of the hard-cash conscience, Bon?
nor, to throw over Mrs. Southworth alto?
gether, and install the reckless "Allautic
Monthlyist" in her place. One and all
of tho newspapers here join in the attack
upon her, and she ia catching it hot and
heavy. If Mr. Bonner does not succeed
in securing her services, I presume the
New York Sunday Mercury or tho Day's
Doings will. Tho woman who possesses
suoh a capability for winning tho confi?
dence of injured wives, and then rush?
ing with them into print, deserves to be
read by A much wider set of readers than
the porusers of the Atlantic amount to.
It is a pity she has nut tho chance of" re?
peating tho experiment. It is high time
to regurd with suspicion tho inner lives
of distinguished men who are separated
from their wives. Well may they dread
to die. Tho Great American Un masker
is abroad, and the coffin-lid shall scarce?

be "torn before the crowd."
General Stokes, the defeatod Tennes?
see warrior, complacently announces
that ho will accept the situation. After
his threats of setting up a Stokes State
Legislature, calliug out thc militia,

until he could by some confusing hocus
pocus, and through a military possession
of the State, obtain tho gubernatorial
seat-after all this "to accept tho situa?

Stokes becomes positively ridiculous.
His schemo was a very pretty one, and it
is said was countenaLncc.l in Washing?

as Stokes, Boutwell and Creswell aro

work of fighting; but left alone with their
own courage only as a support and they

Stokes can possess his soul in patience if
ho depends upon Boutwell to organize
a revolution for him. He may be cover?

"Such horrid feelings as I experience
no cno can imagine, and I don't know
what it is about; I feel despondent, and
as though something awful was going to
happen." Expressions like these aro
constantly escaping from those suffering
from liver disease. If they would only
take Simmons' Liver Regulator, the de?
spondency would be dissipated, the
spirits would bo cheerful, and tho boilv
j restored to health. A28 J6
PRETTY WOMEN.-A comparatively few
Ladies monopolize the Beauty as well as
thc attention of Society. This ought
not to bo so, but it is; and will bo while
men are foolish, and singlo out pretty
faces for companions.
This can all bo changed by using Ha?
gan's Magnolia Balm, which gives the
Bloom of Youth and a refined sparkling
Beauty for the Complexion, pleasing,
powferful and natural.
No Lady need complain of a red, tan?
ned, freckled or rustic Complexion who
will invest 75 cents in Hagan's Magnolia
Balm. Its effects are truly wonderful.
To preserve and dress the Hair, use
Lyon's Kathairon. A17 J13

A distinguished Methodist minister
and prominent temperance lecturer once
remarked that go where ho would, from
ono end of the country to tho other, he
hardly ever failed to find PLANTATION
BITTERS, and while ho condemned the
practico of using theso Bitters too freely,
ho could not conscientiously say that he
wonld discard them from tho side-board,
for ho had himself experienced beneficial
results from their use, and that, from a
long and close observation, ho was con?
vinced that when used moderately, and
as a medicine exclusively, they were all
that was recommended. At tho same
time ho warned his hearers not to pull
tho cork too often, for thev were far too
pleasant a tonic to trifle with.

best imported German Cologne, and sold
