B?D?OTTOH IN Psioa-f^Tj?BDi?tQ.-The
WSSKIJT CLZAKISB COD tains more reading
matter than any other family paper pub?
lished ia the South-thirty-two long
columns, printed in clear type. It ia
Ailed with original ns well as selected
matter-?ditorials, correspondence, ^eme?
ral nows, markets, telegrams, interest
jog stories, sketches, poetry, etc. Dur?
ing tho early part of tbp coming year its
columns will be graced by u highly
entertaining nouveuetle, the produetion
of a lady of this city, and which has
been pronounced by disinterested critics
as equal to the very beat of "Marion
Harland's" work?. This story is entitled
"Orkney, or tho Fortune? of Juliet Cly?
burn-a tale of the Palmetto State," and
will ran through about twenty numbers
of tuer "GtBANEB." Aa we are desirous
of in trod a oin g the paper-wbioh is in
every sense a "homo companion"-into
every family in the State, we have de?
termined to reduco the yearly subscrip?
tion price; as follows-payable, is all
cases, in advance: Single copy $2.75;
ten copies, (to one post office,) $25.00;
twenty copies $45.00; fifty oopies $100.
The G LEAN EB and the ' 'Rural Caroli
nian"-tho popular agricultural monthly
-will be furnished, for one year, at
r'our dollars. The above rates go into
effect on the first of January, 1870.
Sf ate of Affair* la Sontb Carolina-The
r>aty He fore Us.
We have in Sonth Carolina what may
be called a "pretty1* state of affairs.
Here in the capital a Legislature is in
session, and according to the acknow?
ledgment of some of its members of the
majority, it is more intent upon provid?
ing for the officials than the interest of
the people. To the standard of money,
or private gain, almost every measure is
brought; and the great question seems to
be, how can money be made out of tho
State. Mattera of edncation and of sub?
stantial advantage to the State givo way
to the more attractive concerns of bonds
and stocks. But" turn from the capital,
where fortunes are making by the know?
ing ones, and what is the conditiou of
the State? An incendiary fire greets us
with unwonted frequency. And who is
responsible for this? We believe that
Got. Scott is, to a great extent. He it
is who, in his proclamations, throws out
thone ambiguous words to the State, the
fruit of whioli may be realized iu the
flames that consume the gin-house and
the private dwelling. Let the sober
citizens of South Carolina look upon thie
picture, and let them consider what theil
duty is. If in South Carolina we aro tc
have a condition of order and law and
prosperity-if wo are to have wise laws
properly administered-if wo are to havt
honest officials, who regard the public in
terests-if we are to have a State fit tc
live in-we must offer to the presen I
regime the front of a steady, firm one
persistent opposition. We must rcpudi
ate the suggestions of those time-servinr.
men who, though pretending to oppost
the present political anomaly in Soutl
Carolina, are yet, for lucro or place, aid
iug and abetting tho foes to the commoi
weal. We repeat it, that the duty befon
us is plain. We must resolve uot to gi vi
up South Carolina to the rude grasp tba
is uow laid upon her. Fixing upon ?
policy that is moderate and acceptable ti
the sober sense of the people, wo mus
pursue it perseveringly and steadily un ti
a wisc, a virtuous and nu iutelligeu
rule is established over South Carolina
a rule which recognizes tho claims o
both classes in South Carolina, am
which looks to the moral and materia
development of the State-a develop
ment not sought to be attained by arti
ficial and illegitimate methods, but b;
those solid means which leave capita
and labor and enterprise, unfettered b
hostile enactments, to do their goo*
work. As our readers kuow, wc ave n
extremist-no alarmist-no uensationisl
We appreciate tho true mission of joui
nalism. We say what wo feel, and wha
wo believe is justified by tho fact an
the testimony. In this spirit-speukin
for a Stato endeared to us all-speakin
in behalf of a long-suffering people, w
tell them that in South Carolina, lookin
to her Legislature where tho impudenc
of the carpet-bagger, conjoined with th
ignorance and prejudice of the negro, i
making laws, and raising money, au
creating offices, and votiug away monej
and in general runuing riot in crud
legislation and partial enaotmcDts-lool
ing, we say, to her Legislature, where a
this is done, and looking, too, to he
Executive, in whom a willing ally is t
be found-the duty of tho great mass t
our people is obvious. It is by organ
zation, and resolution, aud spirit, an
work, lo build np tho political powei
that will change all this. WhcD th
time comes for a ohango of rulers, let n
man weakly say that weare in aminorit
and aro powerless. There is power i
pluck, and there tire resources in a d<
termiued will. Elven in a virtuous effor
there is a success. We summon the me
of South Carolina to tho patriotic dut
before them. That duty, briefly Btatot
i ft to redeem the State.

THB MILITARY MOVEMENTS OF WIM
nusn.-Tho Washington correspondent
of tho Charleston Courier says:
"In tho National Negro Labor Con?
vention, South Caroliua was represented,
and the delegates from that State took a
prominont part. One of them, Wim
bnsb, went far ahoad of all thc others, in
asserting tho rights of thc frocdmon, de?
claring that tho next United Ht a tes Sena?
tor elected from South uar oh nu would
be a nogro, and that he was himself rais?
ing a colored militia regiment that would
drive their Ku Klux enemies to the
Let tho Chester Reporter tuko notice.
"Loo," tho Washington correspon?
dent of tho Charleston Courier, says, iu
reference to the attitude of Virginia:
"Tho situation of Virginia as a sup?
pliant, through legislativo committee,
for admission, after she had complied
entirely with all the onerous terms of
admission imposed upon her, is very hu?
miliating. Somo members of her State
Government, on the cousorvativo side,
are pledging themselves that the Statu
shall keep iu the radical track, and it is
through this formal pledge only that tho
Reconstruction Committee will bo in?
duced to receivo her.
"It is true, however, that some of the
members of Congress olected from Vir?
ginia, and many of her conservative
citizens disapprove of, and rebuke this
begging for admission. They say, that
haviug done all that the Federal Govern?
ment requirod, they are entitled to ad?
mission without further humiliation.
They scout tho idea of giving any pro?
mises for the future, and will not cvon
ask Congress to in i ni, in good faith, its
own obligation. It is true, -also, that
some of tho members of tho begging
oommittecs who have signed the pledgo
against nuy chango of the radical pro?
visions of the State Constitution, laugh
at their own nctiou, saying that they
claim no right whatever to bind thc State
ns to its futuro action."
SPANISH CHUELTIES.-There is no
doubt that tho Spaniards practice tho
most shockiug atrocities towards tho
Cubaus. Tho evidence upon tho sub?
ject cannot be questioned, for a portion
of it comes from the Spaniards them?
selves. A Spanish mail was recently
captured, and its contents have becu
published. As au example of tho letters,
we give extracts from two. One person,
writing from Santa Clara, September 30,
to a friend in Spain, says: "You cannot
imagiue the number of denths withiu tho
past four months-it can hardly be esti?
mated. What between those that oro
killed iu action, and thoso shot as spies
or co-laborers of tho revolution in this
district alone over 300 hundred monthly.
I, with my party alone, have dispatched
nine so fur, and I will never tire of kill?
ing," etc. Another, writing from Encru?
cijada, in September last, says: "Wo
caught 17 satellites, of whom 13 were
immediately shot, and all of them, afc the
moment of dying, shouted 1 Viva Cuba
libre!' Ono mulatto cried out, * Viva
C?spedes!' As ho did HO, a sergeant of
volunteers drew his sword and ripped
lum open with a blow iu the side, and
theu bucked him up beautifully."
The testimony of these letters, written
in privato confidence, cannot be disputed,
and they show to what n horrible ex?
tremity Spaiu has gone, aud is no doubt
going duily in her war on Cuba. Those
things call loudly for avehemout protest
from the United States, and they will
amply justify, if a protest shall riuss un?
heeded, a rosort to direct interference in
tho causo of God and humanity. There
is not on all tho earth a goverumeut or a
people that could condemn tho interpo?
sition of forco uudersuch circumstances.
UNIFORMITY; IN ELECTING MEMBERS OF
CONGRESS.-The Washington correspon?
dent of the Now York Herald, iu his de?
spatches on Tuesday, says:
"Tho Committee of Electious have
agreed upou a bill which provides that
the day for holding elections for mem?
bers of Congress shall bo uniform
throughout all tho States. As it will re?
quire somo chango in thc laws of severul
of tho States to conform to this Act, tho
bill provides that it shall not tako effect
until the first Tuesday in November,
1872. Tho hill has two objects-first, to
insure a full representation of all tho
States at the organization of each new
Congress on tho 4th of March; and se?
cond, to prevent persons from one Stato
going into another to colonizo. It is
thought that having the congressional
elections going on in all tho States on
the sumo da}', every district will find
enough to do at homo, without going to
help their neighbors.*'
Of the abandoned ch it rohes in that re?
jected mission field, down town New
Yorkj ono in Houston street is a ball?
room; another iu Franklin street, a mar?
ket; a third, in Grand, aud a fourth, in
Amity streets, are stables; a fifth, on the
East side, is a lager beer garden ; while n
sixth, in Broadway, is a theatre.

LOVE'S LABOU TO DE LOST.-Thcro ia a
paper circulating amoug our citizens to
petition the Legislature not to extend
tho limits of Columbiu. Wo have no
doubt but that this is tho voice of tho
whites of Columbia and of a number of
the colorod people, viz: that there ia no
reason why tho limits of tho city should
bo extended. But wo doubt tho efficacy
of this paper, and wo regret that such a
document should havo been gotten up.
In our judgment, it will not have any
effect. If party tactics and political
wire-pulling have decreed that there shall
bo another election in Columbia, the
voico of tho people hore will not chango
the result. Possibly, thc bill will not
pass; but if it does fail, the defeat will
not come from this movement of tho citi?
zens. In dealing with this Legislature
and tho regime that tho majority repre?
sent, back-bone and stiff knees and stern
resolution and patience will bo found to
avail more than any appeals to sense of
justice nod propriety. Towurds tho ma?
jority of tho present Legislature, there
should be no other attitude than that

an opposition and a defiance limited only
by the law and the situation. No doubt,

We, the undersigned, tho Mayor anti
Aldermen of the city of Columbia, asli
leave, respectfully, to show: That thej
aro informed that a bill has been intro
j duced by a member of tho Legislature
I from this County, entitled "A bill tc
I amend tho Charter of tho City of Co
j lu rubia," and proposiug, first, to extend
tho limits of the city about two square:
to tho North and East of its presen I
limits; and secondly, to order a now cloe
lion of city officers. Wo respectfully asl
that this may not bo done. The city nov,
contains four square miles-au area suf?
ficient for more than four times its popu?
lation, and consequently entailing on itt
citizens moro than ordiuary expense.
Tho additions proposed consists, in large
part, of land vacant and not likely to bc
built upon, to any great degree, for manj
years, if ever; is undivided in squares,
and although, in part, valuable ns farm
iug land, is not of sufficient value tc
sustain, under tho limited powers of thc
city, a taxation sufficient to re-imbnrsc
thc necessary increased expenses. Thc
city, from its almost complete destruc?
tion, fia well as tho great poverty of its
citizens, has found great difficulty in sus?
taining the necessary government, anti
its credit; indeed, hos not yet been able
to pay tho interest duo on its bonds.
Tho undersigned, therefore, earnestly
request that the enlargement proposed
equully disadvantageous to tho citizens,
ns the inhabitants of the section propos?e
to be added; not desired, in tho opinion
of tho undersigned, by tho inhabitant:
of the section proposed, nor by tho ma
jori ty of tho citizens of the city, and r
very great majority of the tax-payers
be not made.
Tho undersigned further show, thal
they were elected (tho fairness of which
election was undisputed and uncontested]
about a year ago, under tho general luv*
of tho present Assembly, for tho balance
of tho unexpired term, and one full tern
thereafter, and that, therefore, their tem
of office will not expire for a little more
than two years; that they conccivo, anti
aro so advised, that under the Constitu?
tion and tho laws of tho State, they have
rights vested which it should not bo at
I tempted to disturb by tho Legislature
I that such a proceeding as ordering a neu
I election for Mayor and Aldermen before
the expiration of the term for which,
untler tho law, they were elected, is not
desired by tho citizeus, and would bo fi
violation of good faith and productivo ol
a state of feeling much to be deprecated
by every good citizen; nnd tho under
j sigued have good reasons to believe thnl
j tho trao and only object of this bill is te
attempt, through the Legislature, ille?
gally to oust the undersigned of theil
offices against tho wishes of the citizens,
expressed at the ballot-box, and to plaoe
the government in the bands of those
who are moving, without any prevtoue
notice, for the passage of the bill. Thc
undersigned, therefore, earnestly protesl
against this attempted invasion of theil
rights, and respectfully request that thc
bill proposed be not made law.

Extract from a private letter from Hawaii,
***** Although the eruption
is not so violent now, the volcano is a
fearful sight to behold. Tho rivers of
lava still flow, and the smoke from the
crater ascends in awful majesty. During
this volcanic upheaval it has been very
sickly here. A peculiar sort of low ma?
larious fever, which has grown' out of the
foul, condensed vapors of the volcano,
has prevailed to an alarming extent, and
at one time it was feared it would depo?
pulate the island. But fortunately, a sea
captain, (calling here for supplies,) dis?
tributed PLANTATION BITTERS to Jthe
suffering, and quick and thorough cures
were tho result. Tho news spread like
wild-fire. Messrs. Ching-Takin & Co.,
Commission Merchants, had these Bit?
ters for sale. In a short time their office
was besieged and their supply exhausted.
A steamer was despatohed to San Fran?
cisco by order of tho Hospital Depart?
ment, and a new and enormous supply
obtained as soon as possible. From that
moment tho scourgo was stayed. Not
another fatal case occurred, and the epi?
demic has now entirely disappeared. *
* * Is this wonderful remedy known
in your city? I hope so, for it is a sure
cure for all fevers and miasmatic sick?
ness. You may tell yonr friends so for
me. * * * * * H. M. C.

In Germany, they treat a patieut with
liver disease regularly, as though he was
violently ill, for six months, he is theu
turned over to the cook with a digestiou
that is perfect. In this country, bow
many suffer from year to year, taking a
little bluo pill to poison tho system now
and then, but going on paying no atten?
tion to tho disease, until they don't know
what it is to bo well, becoming a burden
to themselves and a trouble to nil around
them. Tako SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR
