Wednesday Morning, October 20,1869.
"And Thon, too, O Brotuit"
Oar ootemporary of the Winnsboro
News, as well as other journals in tho
South, appear to regard it their doty to
ignore the claims of the National Demo?
oraay oven upon the whites of the South.
This appears to us very unreasonable,
and not lees short-sighted than unrea?
sonable. It is undeniable, that the Na?
tional . Democracy, since the war and
daring the whole of the reconstruction
business, hare stood np boldly, man?
fully and unequivocally for the rights
of that class in the South which radi?
calism has stigmatized, denounced, op?
pressed, and sought to humiliate into tho
very dost.- -The Southern people may
forgive, as Christians, bat, as mon, they
can never forget how, in the matter of
reconstruction, the radical party insulted
tho honored dead of the South, and how
this porty disregarded the rights und
.outraged the eensibilitiea of tho living.
Wo haye but to look around in order to
see tho fruits -?ow pressed to onr lips
of that bitter, malignant and relentless
' m nei?het Goth, Yandal nor
of. In the meantime,
of the North stood
lone weakneos and
spoke words to us ?of |
>pe, of cheer. Io the
Which have occurred
r-Jiave sought to bring
: to the rule of the Cou
?tftoti^and te aecure the just and pro
t>e?-rehabilitation of the "rebel States,''
with their rights and dignity unimpaired.
In thia effort the Democratic party failed.
Bnt is failure in a good canse, and in our
cauoe, jost ground for onr repudiation of
our political allies? No generous man
can say that ibis. But the failure has
been ? political only. Whatever of con -
servativism, moderation and concession
that has been impressed npon the domi?
nant party, is largely duo to the persist?
ent Struggles of the Democracy. If the
National Democratic party has failed to
overcome radicalism, it has at least ex?
tracted from it some of its bitter ele?
ments, and .inf need into it something of
a magnanimous and forgiving spirit.
The labors of the constitutional party of
the country-of the National D?mocratie
party-haw, therefore, not boen in vain.
But had theso noble efforts utterly failed,
y eb still would it be oar duty to acknow?
ledge tho Claims of that party upon the
proscribed class in the South. When
such journals as the News sneer at the
National Democracy, we feel that Demo?
cracy is wounded in the house of one
who ought to be'it? friend, and are dis?
posed to exclaim, ia the spirit of Caesar,
When ho saw the uplifted dagger of .bru?
tus, tu, Brute.'" If the Democratic
porty is to foll ot the base of Pompey's
statue, let it not be said that ingrati?
tude, worse than traitor's arm, dui vau
quieh it. Bat we trust it will not full
ere its mission is done. It may have Its
Cascas and ita Brutus, but it will be no
Cajsar-either to wear the purple or pre?
maturely to die.
MASONIC FAXB.-A grand Masonic Fair
is to be given in Charleston during the
coming session of the Grand Lodge of
South Carolina, on the 15th November.
It is intended for the benefit of Lodges
and Chapters of that city, enlarging the
charitable principles of the order, and
thus diffusing the true spirit of Ancient
Craft Masonry. Masonic jewels, regalia,
lodge furniture, silver aud plated ware,
will be offered for sale and rallie, together
with a variety of fancy and nseful arti?
cles. Many of the railroads throughout
the State and several steamers hove, in
their usual public spirit, reduced the
price of travel, and will issue excursion
tickets, good for ten days, from the 13th
November, for one fare.
PRIM TO THK CUBANS.-"Liberties and
reforms" are to be granted to the Cuba UH
when they lay down their arms. So wo

lay down their arms. Let Prim disarm

they are fighting for. Tbero is no other

COURT OF COMMON PLEAS.-Judge
Boozer disposed of the sessions docket
on Saturday night last; and on Monday
and yesterday, bis Honor was attacking
tho oivil docket vigorously. All yester?
day was consumed in "weeding out"
the issue docket, which was very neces?
sary, on account of deaths, bankrupt?
cies and settlements. It is refreshing
to hear the civil dockets once again
called in Richland. Tho peoplo will
learn with pleasure that debts can agnin
be recovered upon eon tracts, nud redress
obtained for privato ivroags. No civil?
ized community ouu prosper without n
well organized judiciary, where men can
have their differences settled by the quiet
process of tho civil law. Wo seem to bo
reaching that point again in Richland.
It is due to Judgo Boozer to say that he
bas labored faithfully to this eud. Ho
held an extra Term in Equity during
the sweltering heat of the dog days,
and heard many eases involving thc
most interesting questions, which wem
very elaborately and ably argued by thc
bar. Mince that time, ho has been dayB
in and lays out holding courts. The
Legislature must see the need of some
change in tho new judioiary system of
the State, by which business may be ex?
pedited, and tho judges have at least
some time to write their decrees and ex?
amine authorities, ofter the hearing of
the causes. The business of the country
demands these changes, and fairness to
tho judges and an enlightened adminis?
tration of the law equally demand it.
A WORD FOR COLUMBIA-HER MER
CHANTS-HER MANUFACTURERS -HEH LA
BOMNO MEN-HER SCHOOLS-HER AD?
VANTAGES IN GENERAL.-Some months
ago, we sent our presents greeting to the
country, and invited to this city numbers
and capital. Allow us to renew th? invi?
tation. We believe that few cities in tho
South present advantages superior to
Columbia. Before the war, this city was
regarded one of tho handsomest inland
towns in tho country. Locatod on tho
level and on the gently-sloping banks of
the Congaroe, hurd by where the Broad
and Saluda mingle their waters; charac?
terized by streets clean, wide, shady and
well drained; adorned by fino gardons
and handsome residences and an attract?
ive Park; filled with schools, churches
aud colleges-male and female, and con?
taining a flourishing military academy
an ornament to Arsenal Hill-having all
tliese points of interest, Columbia was,
indeed, a goodly place-a fit habitation
for men, if not for gods.
Now, she is not whntshe was. Bat we
rejoice to say, that she is in a courso of
solid reconstruction. She is laying the
snck-cloth aside and again putting on the
mantle of prosperity. She is restoring
I herself to something of her former vigor
and well-being. With busy hands and
active brains and undismayed spirits, ber
sons and daughters are building up the
waste placeo; and gathering, with pious
zeal, tho loose, disjointed fragments of
tho broken structure of their fortunes,
they are seeking to build up an edifico
stronger and more enduring than the
former one-and, with the favor of God,
they will succeed. Nor aro Ihe present
advantages of Columbia slight. In foot,
they are considerable. With its central
location; its converging railroads; its ad?
mirable water power; it presents a fino
field for capital to invest its means in
mercantile or manufacturing establish?
ments. There are lands, too, of admi?
rable character for tho agriculturist, in
tho vicinity of tho city. And at present,
there is quite a demand for laboring men
in tho mechanical departments of busi?
ness. As a placo of residenco, few places
present moro attractions. With a climate
scarcely less fi no than that of Aiken; with
a reputation for health that is established ;
with churches and schorls; with a socic
I ty refined and intelligent; with a commu?
nity generally harmonious and peaceful;
with all these attractions, wo may well
speak a word for our goodly city. Have
you cotton to sell? Wo have liberal buy?
ers. Hftvo yon goods of all kinds, dry
goods, groceries, clothing, shoos, Lats,
crockery, wooden and tinware, Seo., Sec.,
to buy? Wo havo enterprising merchants
I to supply you. With foundries and mills
and work-shops and manufactories of
wool, cotton, wood, leather, ?c., Ac,
Columbia is well supplied. But abe
j wants more, especially iu the department
of mechanics and manufactures. This
department needs an ampler develop?
ment. Wo want such men to como here
as those who have not como-for in?
stance, Mr. SpraQ 'o. We want in Co
I lumbin to increaso our manufacturing
I rosonrces-we want numbers and capital.
Heneo it is, that on tbis autumn morn?
ing, we again send forth our greetings to
tho country, and repeat tho cordial wel?
come that awaits the means we need nod
' the substantial men we want.
C'BUMBS.- Tho barning of a portion of
the rafters in an out-bo uso on the pre?
mises of Mr. G. Logan, yesterday, caused

TUB MANOO.-Wo examined, yester?
day, with considerable interest, two im?
mense vines, containing a liberal quanti?
ty of fruit, growing on the premises of
Ur. George S. Trezevant. This valuable
addition to the productions of our fields
and gardens seems to be of sturdy gre vfth,
and the yield in fruit is irnaiouse. It
should be generally cultivated. The
doctor gives ns the following description
of the plant, and his experience wKb it:
"The mango vino is said to bo a na?
tivo of Africa, South America nui the
ladies. It grows on tho banks >1 tho
rivers, in rich alluvial soil. In this' cli?
mate, it begins to flower about toe middle
or latter part of August, and will conti?
nuo until killed down by the frost Ono
vino will last from three to four years
springing afresh every spring, if tue roots
are kept protected from the cold by straw
during the winter. The fruit is a most
delightful esculent-being mora delicate,
than tho squash, whioh it resembles in
flavor. It can also bo prepared lilia tho
Guinea squash, and makes a most excel?
lent pickle. The fruit can be kept and
used all winter as needed, by storing in
a dry place. It is a very succulent plant,
aod requires to be kept well watered.
One vine, when bearing well, will pro?
duce from eight to ten bushels. . Tho
preparation for planting is'all the culture
it needs-growing vigorously and soon
covering the arbor on which it is trained. "
