The Claims of Good Citizenship.
When POLITICS is regarded as only o
sera rublo for the spoils of office and a
contest simply for the pride of place, we
presume that no one Can feel a greater
disgust for it than ourselves. We ap?
preciate the spirit in which, under such
circumstances, the citizen turns away
with loathing from the petty arena. But
when we come to look upon polities as
the means by which the prosperity of
States is scoured-as the mode whereby
the pub.Iio interests in general are sub
aorvod-then it is that the subject as?
sumes an entirely different aspect. When
politios is made to involve the art of go?
verning wisely and economically; when
it reaches to tho heights of statesman?
ship; when it catches the spirit of a
glowing patriotism that looks to the pub
Ho tone, and the publie morals, and the
public weal, then it is that no profession
is more honorable or more worthy of
the attention of the best and the wisest
citizen. Especially in our country, where
the people rule, or are expected to rule,
politics becomes the business, the imme?
diate concern, of every individual, mem?
ber bf the State. ' Such now being the
case, and we assume that every right
minded man will assent to the truth of
one propositions, the question arises,
what are the claims of good citizenship
upon us? The answer is plain-good
citizenship demands of us that we ne?
glect not the business of the country.
It demands of us that we see to it that
public affairs are rightly managed. It
demands of ns that all the good, wise
and pore elements of the community do
enter upon the political arena to fight
the good fight of the State's good. It
requires of us that we hold not back and
leave the field to political robbers,
thieves and plunderers. It requires of
us that we take the public reins out of
the hands of the wicked aud the ineffi?
cient, and place them under the oontrol
of the true, and the honest, and the ca?
pable. This is manifestly incumbent
upon all good citizens. Not only does
a beooming State pride suggest this, but
the duty whioh one owes to his family
demands it. Too muoh of indifference
and apathy on this score exists among
our people. We hope the evil will not
grow . And we trust that whenever thc
opportunity shall arise, the good citizen:
in every community will spring witii
alacrity to their posts and vindicate at
the ballot-box the cause of a good and
honest administration of our public af
fairs. To this self-interest no less thar
patriotism points us, and nothing should
be allowed to swerve us from this "just
SPATS AND THE EUP.OPE.VN POWERS.
The various and conflicting reports wbicl
the ocean cable daily brings ns of de
signs and arrangements of Europ?ai
powers to secure to Spain the possessioi
of Cuba, are probably without founda
tion. It is not at all unlikely that Spaii
is perturbed at the prospect in Cuba
and principally on account of the appro
hended influence of the United State
Government and people, in detach in <
the island from Spanish possession. Thi
may have caused her to look round fo
help to her European friends. But, ii
matters of business, nations; know m
friendships, or, at least, do not penni
that sentiment to govern their action
It is very likely that France and, pei
haps, other European Governments, sym
pathize with Spain in regard to Cubo
for they have American colonies of thei
own, and they look with no favor upoi
the increasing power and rapid ferrite
rial expansion of the United States. Bu
all have sagacity enough to know tba
they will lose more by war than by losin
their colonies, even if that should be th
result of the absorption of Cuba by th
United States. It is simply a questio
whether the loss of the colonies witbou
war, will not be less than the loss of thei
with the cost of war snperadded? B<
sides, the Mexican experiment has prc
bably satisfied France, to whom Spai
seems to be principally looking, tin
meddling unnecessarily in American a
fairs does not pay. Our Govornmeu
the Baltimore Sun thinks, hos given n
cause of offence in making friendly re]
resentations to Spain in favor of reasoi
able demands of Cuba, and Spain, unlei
demented, is not likely to make war wit
ns on that account.
It is understood that Ben. Butler wi]
early in the coming session of Congres
deliver a scathing speech on the extra vi
ganoes of several Congressional commi
toes which have been traveling aero;
the continent at Government expons<
His remarks are expeoted to apply part
cularly to tho Ways and Means Commi
tee, of which Schenck is Chairmai
Schenck is said to be prepared for h
antagonist, having secured some mo;
damaging facts against Butler's comic
tion with certain manufacturing institi
Thc Union HOT?.
We observo with satisfaction that thia
raoveraont has been abandoucd, in de
ferenee to the force of publio opinion,
as egressed ia tho j our a als of the State.
As for ourselVee, wo never would havo
advised it; bat the blow having been de
livered by friends at the common politi?
cal foe, for one, we did not choose to
mitigate its force by standing in the
way. We will, therefore, meet the ene?
my upon other fields. For let this be
understood-South Carolina is to be won
from radicalism and restored to a wiser
and a better rule. The victory comes
sooner or later.
The immense ravages of the revolu?
tionists, as well as the Spanish troops, in
Cuba threaten not only to render that
rich and fertile island a profitless posses?
sion to Spain, but to destroy its produc?
tivo power for some timo after the close
of hostilities. For nearly a year, mills,
houses and plantations, as well as crops,
have been sacrificed to the fury of the
belligerents, until the whole Eastern half
of the inland has become a scene of de?
solation. Tho Western half of the island
-which is tho wealthiest and most popu?
lous-has thus far, in great measure, es?
caped theso ravages; but with tho pro?
gress of events hore also, one locality
after another is mado to suffer. Through?
out a great part of tho island, the ne?
groes are of course demoralized, so far
as labor is concerned; and it will take
years of freedom, or of repressive tyran?
ny, to bring them up to their former po?
sition as producers. Such is tho extra?
ordinary fertility of Cuba, and such the
generosity of nature there, that it will
suffer less soverely and less enduringly
than most other countries would suffer
from tho destruction of crops and pro?
ducts; but tho injury to labor, machine?
ry, organization and capital will be felt
more deeply than in countries differently
situated. Whatever be the political fate
of Cuba hereafter, it will be the hard la
bor of years to recover her industrial
THE EISE IN GOLD.-How thc extraor?
dinary rise in gold, announced in our
telegrams of Saturday, and tho excite?
ment yesterday, was brought about, is
thus explained in the New York Sun, of
"An alliance of the most powerful and
influential firms in Wall street, including
notorious Erie speculators, has been ef?
fected with a view of obtaining posses?
sion of all the gold in the market. When
this is accomplished, the conspirators
eau dictate their own terms, aud mer?
chants and others, who arc compelled to
buy or borrow gold, must necessarily
procuro it of this auriferous ring. It is
also believed that theso schemers own all
thc gold deposited in the banks. Hav?
ing thus the power of control, the ope?
rators are gradually raising thc price of
gold about an eighth per cent, daily.
Their agents in the gold room buy all
that is offered at their standard bid and
only sell at a quarter per cent, higher.
At this rate, they will elevate the buying
and selling price each succeeding week
about one and a half per cent. In addi?
tion to this method of bleeding thoso
who of necessity have occasion to uso
gold, we are told that they threaten, at
no distant day, to refuso to lend at any
price, and to sell only on their own

NEGRO CONSTABLE SHOT RI SOUTH
CAROLINA..-About dark; on Thursday
evening, Sam. Spencer, ono of the ne?
gro selectmen of Hamburg, and Goa
Robinson, the mulatto constable who
figures around Prince Rivera' Congo
Court, with their artillery buckled around
them, took an official stroll down the
South Carolina Railroad as far M the
Dead Fall. Their object, we karn, waa
to procure the arrest of a su bj cot, tobo
dealt with, we presume, according to the
most approved misunderstanding of the
law for which Rivers is celebrated.
When they reached the above point,
they were met by a couple of white men,
whose names we have not ascertained,
one of whom opened fire on them with a
pistol, the ball taking effect in the fleshy
part of tbe constable's left arm. Spencer
claims to have fired two shots at tho
white men, but must have fired wide of
the mark, as himself and associate noon
returned to Hamburg without effecting 1
any arrest. No arrests have yet been
made, but the "lott" were in a ferment
yesterday morning, boiling np the occur?
rence, as a Ku Klux outrage for publica?
tion in their Charleston organ. The
wound received by the constable is not
considered at all serious. One of his ne?
gro sympathizers is prepared to identify
the white mau who did the shooting,
and it is confidently asserted that he will
be arrested. It may be very safely assumed
that somebody will be arrceted-whether
the right one or not being a matter of
small concern to tho radical souse of jus?
tice which controls the new regime.

DON'T LEAK OX OTHERS.-Half, at
least, of the disappointed men one meets
with, are the victims of ill-gronnded
hopes and expectations-persons who
have tried to lean upon others, instead
of relying upon themselves. This lean?
ing is a poor business. It seldom pays.
Energetic men (and they are the classes
generally looked to for aid) do not like
to be leaned upon. If you are traveling
in a railroad car, and a great hulking
fellow lays his head against your shoul?
der and goes to sleep, you indignantly
shako him off. It is the Eame in busi?
ness. The man who does not at least
attempt to "hoe his own row," need not
expect any one to hoo it for him. It is
nonsense for any man to pretend to the
dignity of being unfortunate, who has
depended upon others, when he might
have cloven a way to fortune for him?

cides that these notices, or licenses, shall

which has but a limited circulation in
