Tuesday Morning, March 8, ?87U.
Stand by thc Stat?.
We observed in tho Charleston papers
of a recent dato, that a party of yoong
mon of that city had gone to seek their
fortunes in one of the South American
States. We regret to read of an inci?
dent like this. We appreciate fully how
disadvantageous are many of the circum?
stances surrounding us in South Caro?
lina. We feel as deeply aa any ono tho
burdens of the situation, which oro tho
more grievous because they affect at
once onr tastes, our sentiments and our
interests. That a proud and prosperous
community should have been mado to
pass nuder a moro galling yoko than
Borne, even in her imperial pride, ever
imposed npon conquered provinces-this
is a hard fate. In it, we see tho exqui?
site mental and moral torture devised by
a Butler, a Stevens and a Sumner. It is
the act of one who basely strikes r brave
-though fallen foe. It is the Pi ritan
wreaking his vengeance upon the cr u
lior. AU this is hard to bear, and like
the French officer who, after Waterloo,
broke his sword and turned away from
the lost field, many a high-strung soo of
South Carolina, filled with loathing and
disgust, and wounded in his State pride, is
disposed to give qp the causo and indig?
nantly break the chain of devotion that
binds him to his nativo State. This
feeling is natural. But wo submit that
it is neither wise nor patriotic. The
sentiment we may excuso, but when this
sentiment is followed by tho act of expa?
triation, we cannot approve it.
Hence, the point wo desire to make is
this-that it is our duty to stand bj
South Carolina. We must not givo up
the State. It is the State of our birth,
and it contains the graves of our dead.
It is filled with tho monuments which
LOVE and HONOB have raised to those
who have paid, in a quiet way, tli9 debt
of nature, or have died in tho civil ser
vice, or have fallen upon tho field oi
battle. Furthermore, there are man)
men and women, widows and orphans,
young and old, poor and rich, high ant
low, who cannot go hence, if they would
And shall the young and vigorous- shul
the young meu of the State-leavo then
to struggle, without their aid, for tin
political showing and influence now with
held by wrongful legislation? They can
not do it. As a general thing, we fee
that they witt not do it.
But it is not duty alono that dernaud
of our people that they should notaban
don Carolina. We aro suro that thc self
exiled man may easily go farther am
fare worse. What has been the experi
ence of those who have tried Mexico nm
Brazil? Bitter. They have returnei
home bettor and wiser citizens. It is tm
that in these Southern States, where th
inexperience and prejudice of the negro
for the present, control our politics to
large extent, the prospect is not iuvitiu
and the situation is fur from suiting th
tastes of 1? white mau. But wo havo rar
material advantages io South Curolinn
We have a genial climate, and a tee in in
soil. We have admirable water-powci
We have the means und the materials fe
many forms of manufactures. Wo hav
railroads, and sea-ports and un ensy nc
cess to the markets of the country. NV
have the great staples, cotton and rici
We can raise wheat, oats, rye, corn an
other cereals. We have gold mines, iro
mines and phosphutie deposits. We lav
a brave, spirited, virtuous and persevei
ing people-whites-and a body of ci
lored people, who, if left to theniselvi
and to honest influences, would bo di.
posed to go to work and harmonize wit
the whites upon thc basis of civil an
political equality bofore tho laws-no
denied to them by none in South Cir?
Theso aro great advantages. If Cm
iu his providence has permitted ot
conquerors lo inflict much of lons ?in
indignity upon us, bohns left to us man
elements for tho building up of a r<
newed power. Wo repeat it, then--an
would our words could penetrate tl
boort of cvory honest Curoliua whit
man in tho Stute--it is our sacre.1 dal
to stand by this ancient State. Ju l!
spirit of a noblo PERSEVERANCE-in tl
spirit of au indomitable RESOLVE-"lin
column of true majesty in mau"--v
must go manfully to work und restoi
this State to tho control of wiso and ri
tnous elements. To this work of polit
cal reform and industrial expansion, 1
the Democracy of tho State-iu its coi
test with the power of radicalism-ded
cate its best efforts. Let no genuii
Carolinian fail us in this groat work i
regaining and building up our eantr
State. It seems to us that uo young Cur
linian can propose to himself a nobl
work, of a public nature, than this,
wit: by peaceful moans, to retake h
Above all, amid our darkened fortune
whilst bad men rois, and heavy taxes ara
laid, nud the public ?ands are squandered,
nd whilst Nero's fiddle whilst Borne is
burning-let the devotion of theJkrueson
of Carolina not grow cold. Let bim
oherish the sentiment and imitate the
deep fervor of the Jewish patriot, as be
exclaimed, iu tho depth of his feeliug,
which llaliy lo nish captivity could not
"If thoo, Jerusalem, 1 foi g ot.
Skill part from my right hand.
My tongue to my mouth's roof let cleave.
lt I do thee forget. .
Jerusalem, and thee, above
My chief joyr do not set."
Wo know that there aro men who seem
averse to further effort iu behalf of po?
litical change in the State, and who up
pear to bo inclined to assume that the
field is lost. But we tell them that all is
not lost, and that good citizenship de?
mands other efforts at their bunds. To
the motto of POLITICAL, BEFOHM und IN?
DUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT, let the sentiment
of NE VE ii DESPAIR be added.
"Hear, Alfrod, hero of tho State,

Tlte Offer ot tbe Times.
In an article on the completion of "re?
construction," the New York Times says,
in reference to the country :
"A grand future confronts it, and if
the North nnd the South would but real?
ize their mutual obligations, and temper
their political and social intercourse with
moderation and a realizing sense of a
common destiny, all would be well."
We accept the offer of the Times. Wo
are now in the Union. Nolens volens, wo
of tho South aro part and parcel of the
country. Being so, wo aro interested in
the country's future, and we desire to
uoite with good men in all sections, iu
order to have a country where the liber?
ties of the citizen and his industrial in?
terests nre maintained and guarded. We
ure disposed to temper with moderation
our political and social intercourse with
the North, and to realise tho sense of a
common destiny. But in ordor to bring
about that fraternal accord which thc
Times professes to desire, it must also
realize obligations and do much temper?
ing. It must change the programme of
its party and of itself. It must recog?
nize in tho so-called "rebels" of tho
South its peers, and it must not allow its
tender regard for the black South to
ruako it overlook tho claims of tho ich ito

THE CUBAN CAUSE-OBX. QUESADA'H
ACCOUNT OP THE SITUATION.-According
to the news brought by Gen. Quesndu
and his staff, and published in the New
York papers, Aquilora is still Secretary
of State, and is a candidate for Vice
President of the Republic, tho election
for which positiou is soon to tnke placo.
Izagnirre had given up the Treasury,
and it is probable that C. Mola would bc
named to succeed him, though the Pre?
sident had declared that he would not
accept tho former's resignation. It is a
fact that the President married, some
four months 'ago. a sister of General
Congress is mainly composed of mem?
bers who voted the constitution, and its
number has been increased to twenty
five. The Marquis of Santa Lucia pre?
sides, but his health is bad, and recent
deaths in his family prevent his constant
attendance upon the sessions.
Jordan is commander-in-chief; Agra
monte is second in command. There are
four brigades and two squadrons of
cavalry; the latter under thc command of
Julio Sanguily. The other commanders
?ire: C. Porro, of tho brigade of the
North; M. Agramonte, of tho brigade of
the West; P. Recio, of the brigade of tho
South; Cols. Mola and Lope Recio com?
mand the brigade of the East. The mi?
litary scale comprises the grndo of general
of division, lieutenant-general and bri
gadier-goneral. The word major-general
denotes n ch ago, not a grade-Ignacio
Agramonte fills that position in Caria
Riley, Marmol, tho same iu tho Eastern |
department, and Cavada is major-general
of tho Cinco Villas.
General Qnesada's party report that
all the departments of the government
are working well, and thero is a great
abundance of almost everything. Cloth?
ing is somewhat scarce among tho poor.
There is plenty of salt, which 13 nu arti?
cle sometimes difficult to timi. Powder
is being manufactured at the rate of fifty
pounds per day, and is of the best qua?
lity. Nitre is obtained by un ingenious
method: Tt is extracted from the excre?
ments of bats, which aro found in tho
caves. The powder is good, but a suffi?
cient quantity is not now being mudo for
tho uso of the army. Fire-arms aro being
manufactured and repaired in numerous
shops, but there are many thousands
wantitig arms. With only small addi?
tional resources, tho Cubans could act
upon tho aggressive, and drive out the
Spaniards forever from the island.
TUB LAST SUGGESTION.-That tho
vessel whidh collided with tho Oneida
was not the Bombay, but some other
steamer, which suffered so severely by
the shock as not only to be incapacitated
from rendering auy assistanco to the war
slcuiner, but which also shared with tho
Oneida in her ocean grave.
Another agrarian crinio is reported in
Ireland. Patrick Dunn, of Kiog'.sCoun?
ty, waa shot and killed for retaining his
holding in spite of rppnared menaces.
Tho murderers were not discovered.

BOILER EXPLOSION IN THE Sincans
THESE MEN KILLED-DAMAGE TO PRO?
PERTY/.-On Saturday moruiug about 4
o'clock, the engineor and ?remen of the
works of tho Charleston Mining and
Manufacturing Company, about twelve
miles from tho city, came to their death
under the following circumstances: Fire
had been made iu a boiler attached to n
washer used for cleansing the pbosphntic
nodules and a pressure of about fifty
pounds of steam raised, when two of
the Hues collapsed, an explosion ensued,
which shattered the surrounding build?
ings and fences, aud by which the engi?
neer and two colored firemen lost their
lives. The engineer, Mr. Earnest Gar?
rick, was instantly killed and tho body
of a colored mun, Benj. Bi vers, was
found about forty yards from where thc
boiler stood, horribly mnngled. Ho
wus ougaged in prepariug his father's
breakfast, near the boiler, winn tho ex?
plosion occurred. Benjamiu Burnell,
another colored man employed about the
place, iras badly injured. Ho was
brought to the city and placed in the
i hospital, where ho died yesterday morn
It was fortunato that tho accident did
not occur au hour later, as it would have
endangered the lives of some thirty or
forty persons, who were at tho time ab?
sent from tho works.
Tho bodies of the victims to this nu
