COLUMBIA, S. C
Thursday Morning, February 17,1870.
DEMOCRATIC DEMONSTRATION.-A De?
mocratic- meeting was held, in New
Orleans, on tho 12th instant. "All citi?
zens of conservativo views, and opposed
to the corruptions, tho bad legislation
and other excesses of the radicals," were
invited to-participate iu tho proceedings.
The New Orleans Times saya :
"The meeting is a very itnportaut uue,
and, wo trnst, will be largely attended.
Borne vigorous efforts must be made to
rescue the State and city from the vam
pyres who aro growing fat and bloated
with their life-blood. The Democratic
party ia the only organized party which
can furnish the nucleus of a Sufficient
foroe to accomplish this important
object. There are some citizens who do
not like the name-some who do not like
to be identified with the principles and
policies for which the party has combated
in the past. There are others who are
dissatisfied with the acts and affiliations
of prominent members of tba party.
These must and can bc reconciled to a
union with the great mass of the Demo?
cracy on gruuucUflupou which all honest
citizens must stand. The immediate
object should swallow np nil minor differ?
ences audf'pr?^udices. Th?jr object is to
establish the supremacy of tho Constitu?
tion, of personal and official honesty in
She Government, and to defend the
people from oppression arid spoliation.
These are the three points to be fought
for.. Let others be, for the pr?sent,
ignored. Let it bo distinctly declared
that unceasing war will be waged against
venality and corruption in office, as well
of Democrats ?s of r?did?ls-as well in
the city as in Stato offices. ., Let it bo
made known that the public official who
sells his vote and favor shall hereafter be
branded ss infam?os.

GOOD WORDS WELL SPOKEN.-Oar
contemporary, the Charleston News,
closes an article, reviewing the political
situation of the South, thus:
"But there is one. comfort. States
and races have an amazing vitality.
They often-times grow most rapidly,
like the palm tree, when weights are put
upon them. A people whp retain their
manhood, their industry, their virtue,
cannot long wear the yoke, nor need
they wait for the vindicatiomaof history.
Having a distinct end to accomplish,
united by .a common wrong, inheriting
the legends aud the personal recollec?
tions of a heroic past, cultivated, prac?
ticed in large and liberal statesmanship
we, of the South, certainly have no
reason to despond, or to doubt, even
amid the grievances and oppressions of
the times, that 'the day of our redemp?
tion druweth nigh.' Every year, a
larger number of Southern youth, whom
the fourteenth amendment cannot dis?
qualify, are entering upon the arena of
political life. And tho present voters of
the Mouth may even now accomplish
much by submitting to and adjusting the
circumstances in which we are placed, so
as to insure tho defeat of radicalism.
Nay, are we not, in some respects, repre?
hensible for theconditiou of State affairs,
in having so long neglected the resorts
of a sagacious policy aud suppressed the
inspirations of a sustaining hope?
"Some of tho shrewdest observers of
tho drift of public affairs, already, like
the New York Sun, acknowledge that
the mission of the Ilepublicau party is
nearly completed; that its ono idea is
worn out; that it is bun by the jealou?
sies of hostile factious and rival leaders.
Aud everybody knows that 'when rogues
fall out, honest men get their dues.' "
A TERRIFIC EXPLOSION.-A special
from Clarksville, Tennessee, to the Nash?
ville Union anti American, dated thc lUth
"The locomotive on the freight train,
No. 9, from Louisville, exploded this
evening at t o'clock. Thomas J. Brad?
ley, engineer, was killed, and firemeu
Thomas Campbell and John Couseus
supposed to be mortally wounded. The
explosion was terriffic, and could he
heard in every part of the city. Frag?
ments weighing 3,000 pounds were
thrown a distance of 300 yards. The
accident occurred just as the locomotive
cleared Bed Uiver trestle. Had it oc?
curred ono minute sooner, the train
would have been a perfect wreck.
THE Anr OF GOVEKNINQ.-A cotempo
"Nearer to our day, Napoleon, when
time hod brought to him the philosophic
mind, uttored the maxim, 'C'est le venire
qui gouverne le monde,' and Lord Mel?
bourne, who had a long reign of power
tn England, said that there was but ono
dictum of Lord Eldon's he would ac?
knowledge-'if you wish to manage men,
dine them well. "

dispositions and tempers of its victims. The
dyspeptic becomes, too, in a measure demo?
ralized by his sufferings. He is subject to fits
of irritation, sullenness, or despair, as thc
case may bo. A preternatural sensitiveness

will recover rapidly from its restlessness and
irritability, and this happy change will mani?
