Sunday Morning, Hovember 7, 1869,
Tht Monnmcnt Sa tit? CaufcUerato Dead
?nd th? SnrTlvor?' AIMIIBUW.
There are two things that reuin?n to bo
dono in connection, with tho into Confed?
erate struggle. Theten? .ia to raise a
..monument to the South Carolina dead
in that cauBo;iifo other is.ip carry out
the hiefcorroal- ?andr- ?abai itablo feat ur o
embodied in tho proposed Snrvivora'
Association. The one ia the work that
ike women of South Carolina have pro?
posed to theoisol vr? ; ' til o ' other remains
Xor the men to carry dut. W? repeat what
we hare always said-th nj, wd hope that
both of these pro j oo (/i will be promptly
consummated. We should seo to it that
oar noble dead aro not neglected; we
ohould see to it that the widows and
orphans of deceased Confederates oro
oared for. We should see to it, os due
to the living as well as tho dead, that
the troth of history be vindicated, so far
at least es it concerns the spirit, motives
and achievements bf those who obey od
the call of their Sta to in the luto war
between the States. We feel that we
need say bot little ou this subject. -The
two projeots to which wo are referring
will commend themselves to every man
and every, woman in whom dwells the
genuino South Carolina feeling. We
earnestly submit \ them twin enterprises
to tho men and the women of the State.
The ^Townthip Byitcm In South Caro
rMn?'
On this subject, thc New York World
makes the following rom ark a, which wo
commend to tho present law-makers in
South Carolina:
.'A rather noticeable meeting has just
taken place in South Carolina. To ex?
plain its object, it is necessary to pro?
mise that, in the formation of the recon?
structed constitution, a provision requir?
ing the division of the State into
'townships' was |inserted. As directed
by said constitution, the reconstructed
Legislature passed, in 1869, an act to
organizo townships and to defino their
powers an.d privileges. ' Now, in recon?
structed South Carolina, there is in oach
county, or, to speak unreconstructedly,
dittrict, a board of commissioners; and,
on the 28th of July last, a convention of
said .boards from tho several districts
waa held at the State capital. In open?
ing the prooeedings of this body, the
ohairman thereof 'called the attention of
the commissioner* to the impracticability
of forming townships in Sooth Carolina
similar to townships in the Northern
States, becauso of the limited population
of this State, and the country places
being so sparsely settled, olearly showing
that the parties who got up this 'town?
ship bill'? had in contemplation n State
of much larger population.'
"On the presentation of this view of
the case, the convention took into con?
sideration the propriety of memorializing
the Legislature as to 'the necessity of
postponing the organization of town
ships for a period of ten years ab least,'
and, pending the final disposition uf this
question, adjourned to meet, as ?tuted,
to-day at Columbia. Now, in itself, this
small matter of the regulation of coun?
ties in a single State is not much, bat it
happens to point very well a moral of
general application. That moral is this:
that rules of tho most approved accept?
ance as concern some of the Northern
States, and particularly those makiug up
New England, are entirely ont of piuco
as regards the Southern States. The
sch ool-sys Um, for inst? nco, of New
England, as we took occasion soma time
since to show, is impracticable in the
South, and impractical,lt: not because of
a general aversion to education and bar?
barism, as was thundered from .every
stump iu abolition times, but merely and
simply because the common-school sys?
tem of Now England is only adapted to
thickly sottled communities, and the
States of the South ure, and always have
been, sparsoly peopled. Similarly, we
called attention to tho fact that tba 'big
plantation system,' once tho thenio of
such virulent abuse, was now daily ap?
proving itself as the only stylo of agri?
culture fitted for a rioh country with few
inhabitants. As tho virgin Weat is
brought under cultivation, we find farms
of from five to ten thousand acres by no
means exceptional; and even Mr. Gree?
ley, who once rode the 'big pluntutiou'
argument without mercy and was ull for j
small farms, now comes out to say that
perhaps a thousand acres is about" right.
"Just as time brings its revenges, we
find, too, that it thus brings its passion?
less, exact verdicts, pronouncing thc old
abolition arguments of 'big plantations'
and 'no commou schools,' alike guilty of
a grievous and terrible discordance with
truth. This South Carolina County
Commissioners' Convention is but an?
other proof to tho same cud. First, it
shows tho villainous absurdity of aliens
framing a constitution for homo gover?
nance; and second, it strongly exhibits
the fallacy of attempting, iu tho matter
of local divisions, to model South Caro?
lina on Massachusetts rules. What is
true and good and approved in (ho Bay
Stato is shown, in tho language of this
very carpet-bag chairmau of tho Caro?
lina commissioners, to bo nu '/impracti?
cability* in tho Palmetto State. As thc
proverb says, 'what is ono man's meat
is another man's poison,' and, ns variety
is the spice of life, so local self-govern?
ment for States, and not ono iron uni?
formity, is tho only safo, agreeable and
business Uko rule.

A Snrt Comedy.
We are not of those who find only
food for mirth in the disgraceful conduct
and unseemly behavior now too common
at the meetings of our City Gounoil.
From tho very Bret days of their term,
Aldermen have mado themselves conspic?
uous by their rowdyism and indecency.
Tho gravest accusations were bandied
about; ono Alderman branded another
as a liar; H third challenged tho whole
Council to a general scrimmage; charges
of corruption, peculation and nepotism
wero on everv-day affair. Ana so the
government of the city was carried on
each Alderman improving his opportuni?
ties, and widening hit shoulders, like tho
civic streets, "at the expenso of the cor-1
poration"-until the pistol, already talked J
of, was actually brought to light, and tho
walls of the Council Chamber were de?
faced and scarred by bullets fired by one
infuriate radical magnate at the head of
a brother Alderman. This crowning
picco of blackguardism led to the meeting
held on Thursday night During the
meeting, tho Aldermen who had before
made themselves notorious broke loose
from all restraint. Alderman T. J.
Mackey threatened "to strip every mask
from the corrupt body" of Alderman
Geddings, who is, we know, a respectable
conservativo citizen. The same Alder?
man said he was prepared to prove that
several Aldermen had been bribed, and
had strom to convict him and expel him
for shooting at his aldermanic nephew.
Alderman Collins declared that a witness
who was pat on the stand had sworn to
"a damnable and atrocious lio." Another
Alderman retorted that the moral char?
acter of Alderman Collins was so low
that ono hundred and fifty merchants of
this city certified that "he was unfit to
hold an o iii co under tho United States
Government," which does not, wo know,
pay much attention to pure ethics in
selecting partisan officials. Collector
Clark, a witness of the scene, stung by
what waa said of him, denounced Alder?
man T. J. Mackey as "a liar," who re?
joined by saying that Clurk "wns so well
known in the community as a thief that
it was not necessary to answer him."
Then carno the turu of Alderman Barrow,
who was charged with receiving a bribe
to vote against tho accused. Alderman
Barrow jumped up, saying: "I am ready
to provo, before Almighty God, that this
charge against me is one of the damndest
lies ever uttered." Tho Council were
soon after abused by wholesale, and
styled, in the chaste language of Alder?
man T. J. Mackey, "villains, miserable
thieves, robbers, polygamists, perjurers,
forgers." Tho two Mackeys resigned,
their resignations were accepted, and
the Council adjourned. The audience,
gathered together to behold what wus
fun for them, laughed and clapped their
h ands and stamped with their feet us the
Aldermen lunged and thrust at each
other. As the din became moro deafen?
ing, the audience chuckled and shouted
the more. As tho Spurtans bade their
children witness the antics of their
drunken slaves to wean them from even
a leaning to intemperance, so might tho
respectable citizens of Charleston send
their boys to our Council chamber, that
there might grow with their growth, aud
strengthen with their strength, a fixed
bato of tho rottenness and beastliness of
South Carolina radicalism.
As wo havo said, the conduct of tho
City Council fills us not even with a
grim pleasure," but with regret and
alarm. Wo havo had one year of this
radical city government, and iu that
year tho city spent Slo8,000 more than
it actually earned. In tho Mayor, no
man has confidence. Tho few Aldermen
who are decent and upright havo had no
power to check the waste and the profli?
gacy, tho vituperation and abuse. And
what is our condition? A city of forty
! thousand inhabitants, with twenty mil?
lions of real estate, with a debt of five
I millions, ruled by a majority who com
I bine all tho worst qualities of the fool
and the knave, the dolt and thc uhrowd
politician.
Wo do not speak of this as a political
question. These aldermanic rowdies nrr?
judged by us and by tho public, not as
members of a politicul party, butas men.
Aud wo oppose them, and ever will
oppose thom, not because they aro radi?
cals, but beeauso they are doing their
best to destroy tho city, and with it
every honest citizen.-Charleston News.

RKMOVAL.-Yesterday was a gala day
in Columbia. Messrs. Scott, Williams
& Co. gave a house-warming, in occupy?
ing their new establishment in Court
House range. 1
"At 13 o'clock, not 12 at night,
But 12 o'clock at noon;
Because tho sun was shining bright
And not the silver moon,"
was tho hour appointed.
Mr. T. M. Pollock, of the "Pollock
House," provided the substantials and
liquids for the occasion, and wo are con?
fident that all who were present will bear
us out in the assertion that it was "well
done." There was baked fish, stewed
fish, and fish in every style; besides et
ceteras ad libitum. A quiet and orderly
set of gentlemen were present-many
old citizens, who seldom participate in
an affair of the kind; but, from the fact
that the senior of the Columbia branch
of the concern is an old resident, well
known, and has been satisfactorily tested
for years, it was universally determined
that an exception should be made. If
ono were were to judgo of the "will bo"
from the "has been," the verdict will be
"all right" in this particular instance.
