LET a00JJ MEN RALLY EVERT
Wo will not seek to disguise tho foot
that great perils surround us in this
country. Tho republic is in danger,
Open attucks are now made upon the
constitution, and the safe-guards of
State right? aud individual liberty are
assaulted with persistency aud vigor.
The party iu power has exhibited and
continues to exhibit an utter disregard
of tho limitations of the fundamental
law. As the New Y,ork Journal of Com?
merce says: "The very foundations of
our free institutions are rocking beneath
the onset, and the crisis will ere long be
roached." Nor is this all. What is far
worse, there seems to exist on the part
of good men a strange indifference and
apathy as to the political situation of the
country. Submission seems to be the
order of the day. The most enormous
outrages are submitted to, and the
foulest corruption passes unrebuked. At
( 'ongross and in tiro States bad men role
and good men stand powerless. Yet we
do not despair. Not yet have we lo?t
raith in the great body or the people.
A rovnlsiou of feeling muBt take place,
and tho nation will surely be recalled to
its senses. As for ourselves, come what
may, wo iutend to strike for the rght,
us wo understand it. Our journalism
shall be based upou oiu' convictions and
our sonso of duty, and we shall move
steadily on lo the redemption of the
country; or, at least, to tho point where
that redemption is, in our judgment, to
bo found. Now, as before, we urge our
people to work and to fidelity. "There
can be no national prosperity, or public
virtue, without individual thrift and
personal rectitude." To thrift and
rectitude then let men adhere. We want
here and elsewhere, a cheap government,
wise laws and an intelligent and honest
set of officials. To accomplish this, let
good men rally. Let them rally here,
and let those who are disgracing their
places bo swept from power. Let no
niau despair of tho country. We can
have a country-an ocean bound repub?
lic-of which all may be proud. Let no
mun despair of the State. We do not I '
intend to give her up, and he is a de- '
geucratc sou of South Carolina, who, in j j
his heart of hearts, does not treasure the ?
indomitable resolve to make this State'1
once again a State worthy of the devo?
tion of a virtuous aud an intelligent
population. I i
Tho income tax expires, by limitation, 11
iu the spring of tho present year; but j 1
Corn missioner Delano is either not aware j j
of the fact, or is determined that the tux
shall still be colleoted, in spite of the
limitation. This is shown by his order,
recently issued, for the printing of more
than seventeen tons of income return
blanks -enough, as ono of Mr. Delano's
party organs declares, to plaster the
country from Maine to Alaska, and to
on doing it for the next twenty
years. Tin, JihUl |U?Ulsj-theghiladol- r
phia Inquire* -very justly says that this
income tux abomination is the most
fruitful source of fraud ever devised.
lt is unfair. It is a direct provocation of
perjury, lt is levied upon the few, at
tho expenso of the whole. It creates
spies on tho most confidential business
transactions and maintains them at tho
public cost, it is carelessly assessed,
partially collected, and occasions national
demoralization more than any scheme of
Luxation extant. The men who framed
it were, from the first, ashamed of it.
They acted in extraordinary times,
which demanded extraordinary measures.
Among these measures, were suspension
of tiie habeas corpus, trials by court
murtiul, Mr. Seward's "little bell," sud
the income tax. One and all, they were
war measures; and, though they were,
alike, distasteful to a free people, they
were submitted to, while the necessity
for their existence lasted. From the
very nature of this tax, no man need pay
it who does not incline to be honest;
consequently, tho honesty of tho nation
is compelled to pay the taxes of disho?
nest v. Again, tho revonne raised by it !
is insignificant and contemptible, in pro-?
portion to tho harm it works. And, j
again, there is no necessity for the assess- J
ment of so obnoxious a tax. It may j
suit tho ambition of an administration to
soy: "We paid off, in a single year, or j
month, or day, so many millions of the !
great war debt;" but, so long as tha
holders of our obligations are satisfied I
with receiving their interest regularly, I
no ono wants tho debt to bo paid off at
the rate of three or four dollars in a '
second of lime. The groat war debt wai
taken up, chiefly, by foreigners, who
nought at about sixty, or less, and they
uro now being paid, post-haste, to tho
ruin of the trade ofIrVe country, Ht :?;^
rato of ouo hundred. There are a num
bor of taxes that tho present Cou graf 9
can afford to wipe ont, and tho first <'f
theso is the inquisitorial income tux.

Linnes; the company aud the meu <*,w.h
fill a great deal of tho space of som > of
tho newspapers with their explana' ions
or complaints, but tho matter of interest
to the public is that tho strike continues.
So fur as the press ure concerned, the
company has made especial efforts to
.-ervo it with news, though it has had to
strain every nerve to dose, with nlimitud
loree timi nearly all night work, which is
telt t.i hu a very i/reat inconvenience
Speech ?f HOM. Joan Bright, st Blr- !
mingham, va Ir Uh A?T? i ry.
BIBMINOHAM, J an ti nr y 10.-Tb o mem- j
bera of Parliament from Birmingham i
addressed their constituents, in tho town
ball, to night. Mr. Bright, ou thin occa- \
nott, made his first appearance ou. a I
platform sinoe his entrance into the ?
Cabinet, and he met with an enthusias?
tic reception from his townsmen.
Mayor Primo presided, and Alderman
otorgo moved a vote of thanks to thc '
ministers for their general policy, and !
Dspecially for their course in regard to
the Irish Church. In a speech support
log the resolutions, Alder mn n ?forge
boped the government woald continue j
the work of reform, and amend the Irish j
laud laws, giva the ballot, reduce expen- j
litares and diffuse education.
Mr. Bright, on arising to address the
meeting, waa vehemently cheered. He
thanked his fellow-citizens for the reso- !
utions, conveying, as they did, an avowal j
>f confidence in the government. He
lelieved that at the end of the next ses- j
don of Parliament, a similar vote would
ie earned and received.
He proposed no retrospect-he pre?
ferred to look forward-yet he touched
>n the law in regard to compounding j
.ates, and alluded, also, to the disestab-1
ishment of the Irish Church. On the
atter meaanre, he said his constituents
lad spoken loud enough for all to hear
ind all to understand. It waa one of the
iompletest measures over presented to
he House of Commons; but a difficulty
?ocurred in the place to which all, who
[aa, go, when in London-the House of j
-tords-a place of the greatest antiquity j
.nd greatest influence. On this occa- i
ion, there was more passion displayed
han is generally seen there, bringing
he occupants of benches to the edge of
in ugly precipice. The passion, how
iver, cooled-the wisest reflected-and,
>fter mutual compliments and congratu
ations, the bil! was passed by the Lords,
vho thus admitted that no institution, j
?owever anoient, grand and historical, is
.ie, if opposed to the convictions and |
roice^ of the people. Considering the
lonstitutional training of the peers, their
rienda might well rejoice. Catholic
grievances wer? extinguished-Irish
prievancea only were left. Now, he
iBked Parliament to do something for
>ish non-Catholics and land reform.
Che difficulties of the question appeared
ormidablo, at a distance, but were easily
;urmountable, on approach. The state
)f Ireland might be painted in few
The land had few owners, while ono
lalf of the population were tenants at
viii. The owners neglected to cultivate
he soil, bat faithfully collected tho
enta. The industry, home and life of
he tenant are at his mercy, or that of
lis agents. The owners are of the race
is the occupiers of the soil. Tho only
lifference between them is that of the
treatment of the law of politics.
The Catholio tenant and Protestant
>wner might be friends and yet feel the
mle. Irish proprietorship is really con
Isoation, whioh is the result of conquest,
md only justifiable as conquest. Ta this
prong, penal laws have been added
rostly greater ones.
Parliament is called upon to give right
to the tenants, but to suve the property
of the owners. All would be right, ii
the Irish woald be as eager for reform,
if they were landlords, as if they were
tenants. The reign of discord must be
?topped. 300,000 policemen and eoldien
must be withdrawn from Ireland. Thc
question was the hardest ever presentee
to the people or Parliament. The go
vernment was preparing measures o:
reform. Serions popular considerador
was invoked for them. There was nc
party question respecting it, and a part]
tight would be unpatriotic.
Nearly four years ago, he had blamer
Mr. Gladstone for the suspension of th?
writ of habeas corpus. He had ala?
blamed Mr. Disraeli for not introducing
measures of amelioration. He knev
that an unreformed Parliament mus
refuse action, and therefore he press?e
reform, wider franchise and free repre
This was no class question. The will
justice and power dwelling only in th
nation could treat it. He believed, now
that great results must follow reform

There, as hore, in less than three yea:

tho difference was unimportant. Otb

It is probable that before another gene?
ral election, every voter in the United
Kingdom will have the shelter of tho j

speaker said, is but little, for the go
vemment is unable to drive six stages
abreast through Templo Bar. Tho edu?
cational mensuro might come up at thc j
coming session, but this wus uncertain.
He! ren chi neut, if agitated, was sure, but j
necessarily tedious if wrong is avoided.
For free trade breakfast tables are a j
Btrong advocate. He would bid all
nations bring their wholesome products
in free, but ho said this as a representa?
tive, not as a minister. Free land,
within ten years, would be the loading
question. The alteration of the land
luws, without diminishing any man's
wealth, would do much to arrest pauper?

by applause, and tho orator resumed his j

? ANOTHER DIFFICULTY WITH THE POLICE.
; Last night, a little before 0 o'clock, fi
; white member of tho penitentiary guard,
< while intoxicated, created a disturbance;
i and it becoming neceeesary to arrest
i him, two police oflioers took hold of him
I aud attempted to carry him to the guard
: houso; ho resisted uud culled on hie
! friends to assist bim, whereupon seme ol
tho colored guard from the penitentiary
rushed forward and attempted to release
the prisoner. Chief Radcliffe appealer
' to the citizens present to assist him-ai
j the peniteutiaryites declared they nnm
, bored fifty meu aud would nut allow
i their comrade to be carried to tho gnarr
i house. Ono or two white and severa
! colored meu responded, and the dis
J turber of the peace was carried off b;
: the policemen, followed by a rabble, wb
' brick-batted and knocked down two o
j thc officers. No fire-arms were used
. although at one time the policemen wer
i afraid that, in self-defence, they woul
1 bo forced to draw their pistols. Thes
I interferences with tho police officers ar
: becoming of frequent occurrence, am
' blood will yet be shed. Chief Ivadolifl
returns his thanks to thc colored me
who assisted the officers, as throug
j their agency alono tho prisoner was su<
cessfully lodged in the guard house.
THE RECENT DISTURBANCE IN SPAI
TAN BU RU-DESTRUCTION OF STILLS.-O
the 10th of this mouth, Mr. R. M. Wa
luce, Deputy Collector of Internal Rev*
nue in this city, was despatched to Spa
tauburg County, for the purpose <
investigating certain outrages, said 1
have been committed against A. 1
Turner, one of the Deputy Collectors f<
I that County. Upon his arrival, heir
I satisfied that the reports were true, 1
: organized a party, consisting of tl
United States Deputy Marshal, thr
United States Deputy Collectors, Sher
Dewborry, and soveu United States s<
j diers-all under the command of Capta
1 Summerfield, of the United States Arm
' They went to Turner's ueighborhoo
j about tineen miles from the town. (
I the route, they found three stills ru
! niug iu violation of the United Stol
1 laws, which were destroyed-no o
i coming forward to claim thom. A you
man, named Humphries, who hud be
i engaged in distilling, was arrested. So
; after leaving the locality of the stills,
j armed baud of men appeared on t
' road, aud surrounded the officers, thre
, eniug to attack and drive thom out
the country. Mr. Wallace, Cupri
j Summerfield and their party were fore
! to take possession of a citizen's hoi
j and prepare to defend themselves,
tho crowd, which had followed the
j was soon increased by a large number
men, armed witii rifles, pistols, ?fra, v
demanded thu rcloase of Humphries a
tho surrender of Turner, whom, tb
' asserted, they intended to kill. Caph
j Summerfield ordered them not to co
1 near tho house, aud orders were given
fire upon any persons attempting
approach. The crowd kept cellecti
and the most violent and abusive 1
j guage was used. A number of the u
j appeared to bo under the influence
I liquor. The mob declared that no i
; in the house should leave it ulive. (
! lector Wallace, in order to save trout
j and the shedding of blood, which m
'? certainly have resulted, aa both par
I were armed, surrendered Humphr
upon condition that the rioters would
1 leave. This waa agreed to, and the I
; jority departed, bat a number romain
? supposing that Turner wonld also be a
j ont. One of the soldiers, while on
! way from the house to the well, was a
I at, bat received no injary. Two mi
\ and a horse were shot. On the wa]
' the court house, theeofficera were hi?
I booted at, and evefy'-diareapeci*
1 them. Marion Johnston, Andrew
j Kelvy and John Cantrell were arre?
j for illicit distilling. The difficulty
i curred near the Cowpens battle-grot
This is the substance of the staten
. which Mr. Wallace has forwarded to
! department at Washington. It i
high-handed proceeding, to say the 1
of it, and we sincerely regret bi
forced to record such occurrences.

CATTURE OK A MONSTER CATHAN.-OD
Fnday afternoon last, daring a hunting
expedition in the swamps of the forks of
Congaree and Wateree Rivers, Messrs.
Belton Joyner, Low man, Blakely and
Moye succeeded in capturing an alligator,
which may be termed the king-in size
at least-his weight being 650 pounds
aud his length seventeen feet. He is
very ferocious, and, with a snap of his
immense tail, broke the leg of a colored
boy, besides wounding several other per?
sons, before he could be secured. The
captors are entitled to the cognomen of
the "Hunters of the Period," as they
havo bagged the "alligator of the pe?
riod." This monster would prove a
valuable acquisition to any museum.
Where's Barnum? His ulligatorship is
safely housed in Columbia.
