COLUMBIA, S. C.
Friday Morning, October 22,1869,
Joyful, Grmtsful ?tut Poetical.
The Republican, ol Charleston, thinks
thal: the fifteenth amendment will cer?
tainly be adopted. "Mississippi and
Texas mast ratify, in birder to be admit?
ted int? the Union," (that's gloriously
"republican,'') and thus the amendment
is safe. Well, be it so. But in asm nob
as wisdom looks to the end and policy
only to the middle, it might be well for
the Republican to consider how far the
ultimate interests of the whole country
will be affected by an amendment like
the fifteenth. We have some misgivings.
But tho gratified Republican has none.
At the prospect of general, unlimited,
unqualified suffrage, it grows grandilo?
quent, joyful, grateful and poetical. It
. "Thenceforward, no man, by any State
or community, can be deprived of civil
rights. The arm of the majestic nation
reaches, upholds and defends every citi?
zen. Our hearts swell with joy and gra?
titude, as we say, with Whittier:
" 'I knew tho truth would crush tho lie
Somehow, sometime the end would bo;
Yet scarcely dared I hopo to see
Tho triumph with my mortal eye.
M 'But now I seo it. In the Bun
A free flag floats, from yondor domo,
And at the Nation's hearth and homo.
The justice long delayed is done.' "
To which we have to Bay-"Swell on,
oh hearts! with joy and gratitude." Hu?
man ourselves, and esteeming nothing
that is human foreign to our nature, the
"joy and the gratitude" of even the Re?
publican, are pleasing to our souls.
Tile matter In Georgetown-Rice Field
Hands tn tit? Kleld-Bloquant Appeal
from the Radical Organ lu Charleston.
It appears that there is trouble in the
Georgetown radical camp. To succeed
Mr. Webb, deceased, ono Mr. Bowley,
C. B., from New England, was nomi?
nated by a convention of radicals. The
rice field hands and voters want one of
their color. Thinking that it is not nil
of radicalism for the whito carpet-bag?
gers to monopolizo nearly all the spoils
of the offices, the dissatisfied have put a
colored man in nomination-wo believe
one "Mr. Lucas." This has produced
trouble. This is called a Democratic
trick. Ransier, Chairman of the "Re?
publican Executive Committee," is out
in a card, and "the faithful" in George?
town are told to vote for the regular no?
minee. Africa in Charleston comes to
tho rescue of Now England in George?
town. And tho radical organ steps also
to the front, and not wishing to seo "Mr.
Lucas," a colored man, triumph, with
"ita mortal eye," professes to seo tho
Democrats of Georgetown playing a sly
and devilish trick, and thereupon it
makes an eloquent appcnl to the George?
town rice field hands. lu an eloquent
and affecting vein, the organ says:
"The convention has seleoted the man.
He must be elocted. Republicans of
Georgetown, yon have been united and
firm. You havo, iu past contests, cover?
ed yourselves with glory. Go not back?
ward. Maintain your honor and your
fidelity. Republicans in all parts of the
Stato are looking at you. They expect
you to bnry personal feelings and ani?
mosities, and stand by tho action of your
own convention, and the principles of
your party. So shall j'our bright record
remain untarnished, and you, noble lie
publicans of Georgetown, be held in ho?
nor, as you now aro by Republicans
throughout the Stato of South Carolina."
This, row, is fine language, and no
doubt thu Georgetown freedmen will un?
derstand it all, and bo duly enthused.
We have no special preferences in tho
matter, but as between Mr. Bowley and
"Mr. Lucas," give us Lucas.
A WO.:D FOR ANDREW JOHNSON-. -From
Tennessee, the news ia that Audy is still
uppermost. And uppermost may ho j
cvor be. Wo hope to chronicle his vic-]
tory. We hopo to seo him re-enter the
Senatorial arena. Ho is needed there.
His pluck, his honesty, his devotion to
tho people's weal-these ure wanted
there. Wo know that ho will speak
manly, earnest words for tho country.
Wo know that ho will deal heavy blows
at corruption and intrigue and political
rascality in general. With satisfaction,
wo shall see him beard tho lions that
assailed him in their den. Let Tennes?
see send him to tho United States Senate.
UNFORTUNATE FATAL AFFRAY.-A most
unfortunate fatal difficulty occurred be?
tween Mr. John P. Foster and Mr. W.
R. McDonald, two respected citizens of
Augusta, yesterday morning, between 8 j
and 9 o'clock, in tho vicinity of tho low- |
t-r market, in which, wo regret to say,
tho latter lost his lifo from a pistol fired
by tho former, and in tho progress of
which Mr. Foster sustained u severo
wound from a pistol shot in his right !
thigh, tho bull entering just below tho
groin, and passing through tho thigh
without, howovor, inflicting other than a
flash wound. Tho body of deceased was
penetrated by three balls, two of which
onterod the cavity of tho abdomen, on
tho right side, and tho third tho right
thigh. Mr. McDonald is said to have
fallon after receiving tho third wound,
and expired almost immediately.

ME. ED/TOE: Tho Ex?cutiyo Commit?
tee of the State Agricultural and Mecha?

to the call of the President, and a quo?

annual and life members, and 85 for
other families. Such tickets can, by the
28th instant, be procured from me at the
Secretary's office, ia this city.
Also, the following resolution was
"Resolved, That the Secretary be in?
structed to request all the newspapers of
the State, to notify their readers that all
articles intended for exhibition at the
approaching Fair, will be sent to and re?
turned from Columbia by all the rail?
roads in the State, free of charge, and all

All tho papers in the State are respect?
fully requested to extend this notice.
Further, it was
"Resolved, That the 'Premium List' bo

DE. J. C. FAUEU.-Dr. Faber has been
appointed to the Professorship of Mo?

MB. BDr?on: The Chairman of the
Commifcteo o? Ways and Means, Mr. Ed?
ward Hope, iu your ioaue of 19th, under?
takes to exonorote the Committeo of
Ways and Meare by explaining facts,
but fails to controvert the statement I
made in your paper of 14th, which I
again reiterate: "That certain members
of Council did, without authority tho ro?
of, borrow money and hypothecate stocks
of tho city, in violation of law; that the
oity is spending monoy in excess of its
means, and, os a consequence, is build?
ing np a debt which the citizens will be
anublo to liquidate." Mr. Hope is un?
fortunate in bis extract from a preamble
introduced by himself at a meeting of
Council on 16th July. There is not one
word in the same showing that the trea?
sury was bare of fnnds, and that it wou'd
be necessary to borrow money to meet
the expenses incurred for the agricultu?
ral buildings. The extract quoted to
show that the city treasury was empty,
reads as follows:
"Tho financial condition of the oity
prevents ns from making any very libe?
ral appropriation for the purpose this
year. The oity, however, will necessari?
ly have to appropriate a sufficient mun to
cover the expenses that will have to be
mada to accommodate all thoso who ex?
hibit at tho approaching Fuir. As tho
appropriation will be largo, it would bo
advisable to consult the wishes of tho
tax-payers of the city on the subject."
This paragraph-if it means auythiug
-means that the city would not, in its
financial condition, bi able to ranko a
large appropriation, and suggests tbat
tho citizens should be consulted ns to
the propriety and extent of the expendi?
ture. I may well ask, why did the Chair?
man of tho Committee of Ways and
Means, or tho Mayor, who presided at
tho publie meeting of citizens, fail to
stato to them that money would have to
bo borrowed to carry out their views?
Why did tho Chairman of tho Committee
on Ways and Means fail to nsk authority
to borrow money at the Council meetiug
on 6th August, when the coutract waa
awarded to Mr. Johnson to erect the
buildings, ho beiug tho member whose
especial duty it was to keep Council ad?
vised as to tho finances of tho city?
Tho question nt issue between Mr.
Hopo and myself is not as to tho neces?
sity and propriety of erecting tho agri?
cultural buildings. I fully concur with
him and tho Council who voted therefor
as to tho iuvestment being advantageous
to tho citizens at large. His attempt,
therefore, to create sympathy, and palli?
ate tho error committed by cstublisbiug
a precedent, which, if followed up, may
prove disastrous to tho city iluances, is
futile; as also is tho attempt to show that
the Mayor called two mcotings of Coun?
cil for tho purpose of getting authority
to borrow money.
There were threo meetings of Council
called during the month of August. On
the 6th, a quorum was present, and gave
tho coutract for the buildings to Mr.
Johnson, as already stated. On 17th,
au extra meeting was called, bat failed
to get a quorum by tho absence of two
members. At this meeting, tho members
present were not apprized of its object,
as the Chairman of tho Committees of
Ways and Meaus did not seo fit to pub?
licly announce this as the object-if in?
deed il teas the cause of the meeting being
called. On tho 23d, tho money was re?
ceived by tho City Treasurer, and on tho
31st of August a regular meeting of
Council was held, a quorum present, but
even then tho subject was not brought to
tho attention of Council, and their ap?
proval asked. Nor did tho Committee
of Ways and Means report their action
until tho subject had been mooted out?
side, and investigations were hoing made
by other parties. The City Attorney can
no doubt explaiu his connection with the
altair as to his approval-whether it
meant that Council had tho right to bor?
row money and hypothecate stocks, or
that tho Committee of Ways and Means
had a right to do so without authority of
Council. Ono word more, Mr. Chairman
of tho Committee of Ways and Means.
It is a duty you owe to tho citizens of
Columbia to check expenditures in ex?
cess of tho resources of the city; to pay
off tho accrued interest on bonds; to im?
prove the financial condition of the
finances, HO that tho eity bonds will bo
at pur. Do you pursue this course by a
system of economy and retrenchment,
and by stating to Council that tho cx
: ponditures made are in excess of their
: menus? Would not tho same policy, if
' pursued in your private affairs-spending
I more than your income, no matter in
how laudable objects, and borrowing
; monoy nt ouo per cent, per month-lead
to the inevitable result ol' bankruptcy?

A TOURNAMENT AT THE STATE FAIR.
From a notice iu our columns, it will
bo seen that n. committee of Columbia
gentlemen hnvo taken this matter in
baud. It will be nu attractivo feature ot 1
tho Fair, especially to the young; and if, I
na anticipated, representatives como in j
from all purls of tho State, it will be n
goodly sight. There will bo a grand ca- J
valcade, animated by a "knightly" spirit. :
Gallant young men and fair women, i
prancing steeds, waving penons, grace- 1
Cul costumes, will recall thc knightly ero,
and revivo tho spirit of a chivalrous age.
Wo bolievo that thero is a souud philoso?
phy iu these amusements. lu those
times of depression, theso occasions
como to chango tho current of thought
and to produce a better feeling. Heneo,
wo wish "tho knights of South Carolina"
success in tho proposed trial of skill and j
ht rscman8hip at their grand tournament.
THE FAIR-THE FINAL ARRANGEMENTS
BV THE MANAGERS.-Wo iuvito attention
to tho notico of Col. Aikcu, Secretary,
to bo found in to-day's PH??NIX. Wo aro
gratified to learn that tho prospects for
tho Fair aro so bright. Wo feel that its
success is assurod, and tho matter is now
removed from tho sphcro of doubt.
Great interest ia manifested throughout j
tho Stnto in behalf of tho Fair autl a I
largo crowd of visitors is anticipated.
Somo of tho Counties lmvo uot respond-1
ed yet to tho moderato call for material
aid, but wo hopo that by tho 1st Novem?
ber next, tho Treasurer of tho Society
will havo each Couuty's quota. A small
contribution from each County which
has not yet responded to tho Treasurer,
(whoso address is Cokcsbury, S. C.,) is
all that is needed. Wo hopo that some
man, iu every Couuty, interested iu thc
cause of tho Fair, will seo to it that his
County does its part in this littlo proli
I rainnry transaction. As Columbians, we i
. aro gratified to state, that tho liberal |
conduct and tho generous spirit evinced '
i by her municipal authorities and by her ,
J citizens in behalf of tho Fair, received a |
; lively recognition at tho hands of tho
Committee. Wo know that Col. Aiken, !
; tho Secretary and Treasurer, is doing his j
work industriously autl well. A man of I
raro energy-au enthusiast in agricul- ?
j turo-the work upon which ho is en
' gaged, is with him a labor of lovo, and
' thc public may count upon its being well J
I done. Ho has boeu wiso enough to con
I for freely with tho former Secretary
tho moving spirit in that way boforo tho
war-our excellent and humorous friend.
Col. Gage, of Uuion. Uniting, as ho
I will, his own energy to tho experience of
Col. G., thc present Secretary will, wo
J feel sure, do his important and controll
j iug part. In liuc, wo tako especial plea
I sure in stating to tho public, that tho
1 final arrangements for tho Fair have boon
j made, and that the field is now open to
? tho country. We learn that tho Secre?
tary has received a number of npplica
I tiona from this State and abroad, to rout
certain spaces in tho building, for cxhi
I bi tors to show articles not of their own
! manufacturo. On this subject, thoCoui
? mittoo decided to make no assessment nt
' this Fair, but to allow all such persons
tho privilego of exhibiting their arl ides
j upon tho samo terms as ail other oxhi
: bitors. lint hereafter, tho Committee
i would deem it proper to rent spaces in
I tho hall to such persons as may not have
articles of their own produce and manil
j facturo, but ut tho samo timo may bo
j willing to pay for tho privilego of cxhi
I biting such general articles as they may
' bo interested in. This is a foaturo that
prevails iu tho Northern Fairs-is a

with propriety, bo introduced in our
