lished in the South-thirty-two long
columna, printed in clear type. It ic
filled with original as well as selected

columns are now graced by a highly
entertaining nouvelletle, tho production
of a lady of this city. As we are desirous
of introducing the paper-which is in
every sense a "?tome companion"-into
every family in the State, we have de?

As our readers have observed, it is
proposed by the Sonth Carolina Institute,
in Charleston, to move out from ita
retirement and have a grand fair in "the
city by the Bea," in November next.
We are pleased to record this action.
We desire to see Charleston flourish.
It is a city that numbers among ita
inhabitants noble women and genuine
men. Wo havo lived amongst these
people, and we appreciate their sterling
excellences, their tone, intelligence and
refinement. The step taken is a step ir.
tho right direction. Weare in favor ol
all fain, whether in the capital or in thc
metropolis-whether at the centre of thc
State or upon the oiroumferenoe. Mr.
Lawton, a member of the Executive
Committee of the State Agricultural and
- Mechanical Society, has properly said
that there ia no antagonism between thc
State Fair and the proposed Charleston
Fair. Let eaoh be hold, and let each bc
maintained. At the meeting in Charles?
ton, to arrange some of the necessary
preliminaries, wo notice that Messrs.
W. M. Lawton and W. D. Porter and
General Wilmot G. DeSaussuro and
other active aud in flu eu Uni gentlemen
are interesting themselves in tho matter.
Let the project be consummated. As e
member of the intorior press, we take
occasion to commend the fair to oui
Tho New York Herald refers to 1 'some
dreadful revenges exhibited by the war."
Notably, that the former seat of thc
statesman, Jefferson Davis, in the Senate
of the United States, is now being filled
by "Bevern, a colored man." Well, this
is a piece of vengeance that Mr. Davis
can boar with more equanimity than tho
Jacobin party that has wrought tho
change. We folks, down South, can
stand itas well as the white people North.
We rather like to seo darkies in the pre?
sent Congress, "but," says tho Herald,
"the most terrible revengo of all fulls
upon Sumner. Tho black mau has been
his idol. He has worked for him harder
than the black slave over worked for
Jeff. Davis. He has set his highest aim
on attaining tho Scuutorship for one of
tho oppressed race. But iu proportion
as be loved the negro, he has hated the
white master. Ho bus boon grinding
him hard over since tho rebellion tripped
him. He has, like Shylock, got 'him on
the hip,' and would feed fat tho ancient
grudge he owes him. But at this very
juncture, in comes this ucgro Senator,
whom he (Sumner) had, as it were, rais?
ed to the Senatorial seat beside him, and
this negro, of all others, brings in a pe ?
tition to restore their rights to tho dis?
franchised rebels and to let Antonio keep
his pound of flesh. It is enough to
mak-9 even Sumuer swear at the black
man, 'Out, out, damned spot!'
"The arrival of a colored man to suc?
ceed Jeff. Davis as Senator, and his being
allowed a seat, by courtesy, his State not
yet being re-admitted, is a most startling
exemplification of the great revolution
that has swept over tho country, putting
the bottom rails on top aud tho top rails
at the bottom, changing customs tastes
and principles. Bills to admit Mississip
pijjto representation were introduced in
both Houses yesterday, tho official re?
cords of the re-organization of the State
are all ou baud, aud the Mississippi bill,
with its colored attachment, will proba?
bly soon become one of the exciting
topics before Congress. Will Sumner,
Drake and Company, swallow tho color

OUR "PROTECTORS."-There has been
nothing heard in town from the camp cf

that tho usual good order of our County

zation of a military company. Tho

lumbia, leaving the task of protecting
the border against Ku-Klux raids iu the

there is nothing for these to do but to

ties will be nobly done.

TUE CAUSE OF THE MILD WINTER.
The present winter has, so far, boen tho
mildest known for a quarter of a cen?
tury. A writer in a Canadian newspa?
per accounts for the extraordinarily mild
weather by propounding a theory which
bas al. least the merit of originality. He
says that tho remarkable tidal wave that
swept our shore on the 5th of October
last, and especially tho low lands of the
Bay of Fundy, submerging all tho
marshes, dyked and undyked, was cauccd
by an uprising of the bod of the sea at
some placo not far distant, whero it is
covered by tho Gulf Stream. This, in
turn, he maintains has boon caused by
ono of the many earthquakes whose
effects have been so frequent in low
latitudes this autumn. The immediate
result of tho upheaval was to divert a
vast volume of sea water from its usual
course, thus accounting for the greut
tidal wave. If the Gulf Stream, or a
portion of it thus diverted, is found, as
be thinks it will bu found, to have be?
come permanently changed, and to be
located nearer this continent than herc
tofore, then this strange and unprece?
dented modification of eli mute will be
satisfactorily accounted for, and may,
perhaps, be more or less continuous.

MURDEROUS ATTACK ON AMERICANS IN
HAVANA.-Four Americans were nt tacked
in the streets of Havana, on Sunday
morning. They were fired on, at first,
by a rowdy, and afterwards treated in a
most ornel manner by tho mob who
gathered round them. One of the men
was killed, two others were seriously
injured, and the fourth escaped unhurt.
The only offence the Americans were
guilty of was that of wearing blue neck?
ties. This annoyed a rowdy, and he
fired on the wearers, and thus paved the
way for further outrage. This is a nice
specimen of Havana rowdyism. It is
consoling, howover, to learn that "hang?
ing for murder is not played out" in
Cuba, for we are informed that the Cap?
tain-General has resolved that when the
culprit is arrested, be will be tried by a
drum-head court-martial and executed

SENSIBLE WORDS.- The editor of tho

thus refers to the great necessity of

ment. Whatever chango may then be
effected will not bo sudden, as if by
mngic, but gradual, and by earnest
effort at the ballot-box. The good time
when principle shall prevail will come,
if at all, in this very way. Until the
country is prepared for this, let us have
as good a Government as possible."
SUDDEN DEATH.-We are pained to
hoar of tho suddou death of M?*. T. L.
Crcushaw, a citizen of this County,
which occurred near his residence, on
Thursday last. Mr. C. was engaged at
tho time he was stricken down, in fight?
ing fire in tho woods on his premises. It
is supposed he died from heart disease.
He was a good citizen, an industrious
man, and a gallant soldier in the Con?
federate army of Northern Virginia.
COMMITTED RATE.-We learn from pas?
sengers on the Stato Road train last
evening, that a rape was committed by a
negro on a young white girl, at Dalton,
on Monday. The scoundrel was arrosted
and lodged in jail, butin some way ef?
fected his escape. He was, however,
re-arrested yesterday by the citizens, and
hung to a tree in sight of the railroad.

You re-assemble at a period of remark?

towards this country, and these feelings
her Majesty cordially reciprocates.
There is a growing disposition among
nations to resort to thc good offices of
their allies, iu eases of international dif?
ference. The conciliatory spirit in
which several such cases have recently
been treated and determined, encourage
her Majesty's confidence in the main?

The condition of the revenue has an?

will be disposed to carry into completion

LOUDS AND GENTLBMEN: It will bo

the ocouputiou and acquisition of land
in Ireland, iu a manner adapted to the
peculiar circumstances of that country,
and calculated, as her Majesty believes,
to bring about improved relations be?
tween the several classes concerned iu
Irish agriculture, who collectively con?
stitute the great bulk of the people.
These provisions, matured by your im?
partiality and wisdom, as her Majesty
trusts, will tend to inspire, among per?
sons with whom such sentiments may
still bc wanting, that steady confidence
in tho law and desire to render assistance
in its effective administration which
mark her Majesty's subjects iu geuerul.
This will aid iu consolidating tho fabric
of the empire.

While commending to you these
weighty matters for legislation, her Ma?
jesty commands us to add that tho receul
