Tb? Ho vic wer Ile vic wed-TH o Prcas Con?
We have already acknowledged the
courtesy of tue author in sending to us
a copy of his Review of the resolutions
of the press .conference. Wo further
acknowledge the fair and courteous spi?
rit in which ho has performed the work
which he assigned to himself. In a simi?
lar spirit, it is our purpose briefly to re?
view the reviewer and to discuss the
programme that he sets forth. The
pamphlet under review is divided into
six articles. In article No. 1, the author
of the Review, alluding to tho claim that
the principles of tho press conference
resolutions, to wit: that our people shall
recognize the legal right of all the citi?
zens of the State, irrespective of color,
to suffrngo and their right to office also,
subject only to personal qualification and
fitness-are proper as embraciag a wise
acceptance of the situation and a putting
aside of dead issues, holds that we had
already "accepted the situation." That
is, that when we laid down our arms and
submitted to the rulo of the conqueror,
the ^'situation" was then fully "accept?
ed." Thia is his first point. Our answer
to this is, that an acceptance of the situ?
ation, in the sense of a necessary policy,
extends beyond our original admissions
and embraces the sequence of them.
When'vie admit the emancipation of
the slaves of the Booth, we must admit
all the consequences that flow from said
emancipation. In our country and ac?
cording to the genius of our institutions,
there is no half-way ground for citizens
to stand upon. When the negroes of the
South were declared free, they rose logi?
cally and necessarily to CITIZENSHIP and
thenoe, by law, they were lifted to the
privileges of suffrage and office-holding.
Whether this last elevation was consum?
mated wisely or unwisely, constitution?
ally or the reverse, is not now the ques?
tion. The point is, that the matter is
de facto, and according to the forms of
law, accomplished. This has passed into
the domain of "fixed facts." When it
was in the sphere of debate, it was com
batted. Having passed beyond that
sphere, it is accepted-and the most is
now to be made of it. We hold, there?
fore, that it was proper for the press
conference to make the declarations that
are oontained in resolutions No. 1 and
No. 2. This is accepting the situation as
the situation is now. Bat, says the au?
thor of the Raview, it is proposed that
"in place of the Federal bayonet, our
own hands shall be raised to prop" this
"inverted, tottering programme" that
represented the politioal condition of this
section. We answer, not so. The pro?
gramme of aotion comprehended within
the scope of the press conference resolu?
tions looks to the righting of this py?
ramid. By taking a praotical, common?
sense view of the situation, it is contem?
plated that the "Caucasian race" shall
enter tho field, assert its power and re?
place the pyramid upon its base-and do
this, too, upon the basis of an enlight?
ened and impartial humanity-claimiug
for itself only what it shall win upon a
fair field of honest effort.
Elsewhere will be found the article No.
1, upon which we have commented. Wo
shall continue our comments, and at the
same time, give tho articles or tho re?
viewer as we subject them to review.

G IBRA M'Ait.-The absurd canard which
oame from abroad, of Mr. Bright's in?
tention to restore Gibraltar to Spain,
has at once directed the attention of the
world to that famous rock and fortress,
although the report has bcou officially
contradicted. "It derived its name,
Gebol-el-Tarok, Tarel's rock," says au
authority, "from the Saracenic chief who
first occupied it, early in tho eighth cen?
tury. It came into tho hands of tho
Eoglish in July, 1704, and has boen re?
tained ever since, though various at?
tempts have been made to retake it. By
the treaty of Utrecht, in April, 1713, it
was ceded to England. From July, 1779,
to February, 1783, Gibraltar was be?
sieged by the combined forces of France
and Spain, and suffered greatly from the
smallness of the garrison, the scarcity
of provisions, and the constant fire of
the enemy. The munitions of war ex?
pended on that occasion by tho besiegers
cost over $10,000,000. Ona single occa?
sion 8,000 barrels of gnu-powder were ex?
pended by them. As it stands, Gibraltar
cannot have cost England less tuon
twonty to thirty millions, sterling, und is
retained at an annual cost of 01,500,000.
The Strait of Gibraltar is about eleven
miles wide where narrowest, and bas tho
enormous depth of 2,188 fathoms."
FXRE IN CHESTER.-Wo learn that a
destructive fire occurred in Chester last
night, destroying tho dwelling and store
of Mr. Wm. Hunter, of that town. Tho
loss is estimated at $46,000. Tho fire
engine "Stonewall" was brought into
requisition, but having no cisterns, it
was not of much use. Tho colored peo?
ple, it is said, did not seem to tako an
interest in saving anything, but quietly
folded their hands and looked on tho de?
vouring flames, until they had entirely
consumed tho building and contents.

TALLADEGA, AI.A., April 15. 1870.
Mn. EDITOR: There io an innato somer
thing that makes o mon pron$ otU hi?
nativo laud; that sonjthing which make?
old England deny voluntary expatriation
to her sous. With no people ia the
world has that feeling become such a
fixed principio as with South Carolinians.
Aa extensivo tour over the West has
latterly thrown me intimately among a
vost number of men, and wherever I
met a man that had any claim upon
Soath Carolina, I found he cherished it
with pride. Even foreigners, who wero
once her sons by adoption, seldom spoke
the name of oar State without pronounc?
ing upoa her a God's blessing. Ono
gentleman said to me: "I love Qeorgia
because I was born there; but I love
South Carolina more, for my mother was
a Soath Carolinian." I have been more
than onco told, -'When you say 'lam a
Carolinian,' always use the word Sout7i:
it means something." There must be
some substantial cause for this universal
love; and manifold reasons caa be
assigned for it. Ia the first piuco, our
political oxtsteDce was a political unity,
unparalleled in the history of any country.
Secondly, oar literary institutions were
seats of honor as well as seats of learn?
ing. Thirdly, the elective f ranch iso was
often a reserved privilege in Soath Caro?
lina; for iu?tanco, the mass did not elect
the Executive, neither was the benoh a
seat of popular promotion. And oar
judiciary system being one where merit
alone favored the caadidate, tended,
perhaps, os mach as any other canse, to
produce that State pride of which I
Who does not remember having gone
into a court boase, with almost fear and
trembling, to hear the eloquence of aa
O'Neall, or the sarcasm of a Withers?
And who of this generation will ever
forget tho acumen of a Wardlaw, or the
finished dignity of a Duncan? And
where, on this continent, was deportment
so valued as in a Carolina court room,
where the full snit of black was as
essential to tho bar as the toga was to
the bench? West of the Savannah
river I have seen lawyers in variegated
apparel, without cravat aad vest un?
buttoned, addressing "your honor,"
whose boots hadn't been blacked io a
fortnight, and who wore neither collar
nor cravat. And more than once the
lawyer's "I doae," and his houor's
equally inelegant "yon ain't," have
grated upon my ear. In New Orleans,
where the oourt room is a caboose,
scarcely capable of seating one ia 500 of
hor population, I saw a criminal arraign?
ed for murder, sitting leisurely among
the profession, while bin lawyer, seated,
too, examined the witness sitting ia a
large arm-chair. The lack of dignity,
and tho absence of the criminal's box,
alike destroyed the majesty of the court
and the horror of the crimo. Now, if
these things be so, and if we are unable
to preserve this peculiar identity of our
State, caa wo do nothingcommomorative
of that feature of her existence? Will
this be the duty of the futnm historian?
Would not a "History of the South
Carolina Bench for fifty years," bo an
interesting work if truthfully written?

Quito an excitement was gotten up in
S turk vi lie, Miss., a few days ago, by Mr.
'J. J. Yates breaking about 100 bottles of
ale, porter, brandy cherries, etc., in front
of his store. One of the citizens of that
place, a strong devotee of temperance,
in conversation with Mr. Yates, con?
vinced him that his keeping and selling
such beverages was assisting to make
wino-bibbers and drunkards of young
people, and proposed to share half the
loss with Mr. Yate?, and destroy the
stock on hand. The proposition was ac?
cepted and Mr. Yates took this method
of publicly proclaiming that he was
henceforward a temperance man.
A country paper speaking ferociously
of tho arrest of a fellow for selling a

It is au ungrateful task to differ with
our friendo. It ?B moro than ungrateful
toido *o, wh^n those whose sincerity we
cannot doubt, who?e judgment we re
spect, and who, from their position, are
entitled to un opinion, unite in .counsel.
We have nO objection to a convention of
our people to consult upon the circum?
stances in which wu are placed, but bhrn
and bred in a community who have ever
listened to those who wonld express their
thoughts, however much at variance with
the opinion of the hour those thoughts
might be, we shall ventnre to consider
and discuss the principles which the late
Convention of the Press, iu this State,
have unanimously resolved to announoe
as tho basis of our future action. The
principles which they have declared aro,
that our people shall recognize tho legal
right of all the citizens of tho State, ir?
respective of color, to suffrage, and their
right to office OIBO, subject only to per?
sonal qualification and fitness. This, we
are told, they advise as putting aside
dead issues, and aocepting the situation.
We have accepted the situation. When
we laid down our arms, wo submitted to
the rule of the conquering power. The
choice then before UH was between star?
vation, devastation and horrors greater
than those of war, on the one hand, and
on the other a Qovernment opposed to
our principles and averse to our tastes,
and which might be vindictive. We
chose the latter.
The people of the North seemed at
first disposed to be contented with the
praotioal contradiction of the theory of
secession, and the exhibition of their
power to retain the cotton States within
their domain. But the vigorous efforts
of the Southern people to renew their
overtaxed resources, their wonderful
success during tho first two years after
the surrender, warned the radical party
that its power could be secured only
through the passions engendered by the
war. Hence tho reconstruction mea?
sures, with the double purpose of adding
to their strength and humiliating our
AH has been well observed by a foreign
writor, tho refinement of cruelty in con?
quest was reserved to tho United States
Government-the infliction of moral
degradation in the plaoe of physical pun?
ishment. The Northern people have, by
force, placed the former slave over his
master, and have elevated tho African
over their own brethren of the Cauca?
sian race. They have inverted the pyra?
mid, and, for two years, have kept it
standing upon its apex by the support of
the bayonet. But all this was the risk
we accepted when we laid down our arms
in order to return to our homes to pro?
vide food for our starving families, and
to protect our defeuceless fire-sides.
We acaepted the situation, and when,
therefore, negro soldiers wore sent into
our most peaceful districts, we would
not notice their insolent bravado, and
when our fellow-oitizens were tauntingly
marched, under negro guard, through
our streets, wo turned aside to hide the
tear of humiliation, or the expression of
We accepted the situation, and wheu,
therefore, a person publicly charged as a
public defaulter was placed over us as
Mayor, against the votes we were per?
mitted to cast; and when another as pub?
licly charged as a blackleg, a forger and
a murderer (charges which, repeated
again aud again, ho has never attempted
to deny) was admitted without question
as our Representative to Congress, we
made no useless remonstrance. When
strangers were put over us to be our
judges, we beard thom declare from the
bench their ignorance of the law they
were undertaking to administer, strug?
gled to recognize in their pronunciation
tho most familiar names of our people,
and bore without remark a tone to which
we were not accustomed. Our neighbors
even jeered us for our forbearance under
taunts and indignities instigated by onr
oppressors to rouso us to futile resist?
Our people had accepted the situation,
and they submitted to all these as the
results of the surrender of their arms.
Without the power to resist, they dis?
dained to complain. Their wealth, their
influence, their luxuries, their hopes,
were all put aside as dead issues. But
having so accepted the results of their
struggle, it is now proposed by some of
ourselves that we shall do more; that in
placo of tho Federal bayonet, our own
bands shall be raised to prop tho invert?
ed, tottering pyramid. That we shall
recoguizo the right of all races ia our
midst to suffrage aud to office, ourselves
rivet tho chains with which our bands
and feet aro now bound.
Assured that those who have an?
nounced these principles do not believe
that tho results we anticipate will fol?
low, we propose to discuss tho proposi?
tion with tho kindness and sincere re?
spect duo to its authors, aud will ask,
Messrs. Editors, tho spaco to do so in

We are highly gratified at being able
to stato that tho old annihilator-tho
Independent Fire Engine Company-is
undergoing a complete rejuvenation, in
every sense of tho term. The old reel,
which was deprived of its wheels on the
memorable 17th of February, 18G5, (and
has since, been exposed to tho damaging
influence of the weather.) has been re
wheeled and will soon be in condition to
fill its proper sphere. A new, very hand?
some and yet economical uniform-blue
flannel coat, faced and bound with red,
tastily constructed belt and spanner- case,
and substantial hat-bas been provided.
Thc "little engine," which has been
instrumental in saving a great amount
of property, is found alongside its giant
successor, and in an emergency can bo
brought immediately into service. Great
oredit is due to Captain J. C. Sutphen,
for tho perseverance and energy ho has
always displayed in all matters relating
to the company. Nor must our go-ahead
friend, Lewis Levy, Esq., be forgotten ;
he has been connected with the company
since its organization, nearly forty years
ago-in fact, is a charter member; and
is as earnest and energetic as ever. As
soon as the new militia law goes into
operation, wo verily believe, the Inde?
pendent will fill up to its ante-war quota
-eighty men. Columbia feels proud of
her fire department; the "Palmetto" and
"Independent" companies can safely be
rated "A No. 1."
CHARLOTTE, COLUMBIA AND AUGUSTA
RAILROAD-TRIAL TRIP OF THE NEW LOCO?
MOTIVE "LEXINOTON."-Yesterday after?
noon, upon tho invitation of the railroad
officials, wo embarked upon tho locomo?
tive "Lexington," in its trial run. This
locomotive has recently been completed
at tho shops of the Charlotte, Columbia
and Augusta Railroad Company, whore
it has boon constructed throughout. The
Master Machinist, Mr. Theodore D.
Kline, with his skillful assistants, de?
serves great credit for this work. Tho
locomotive presents a finished appear?
ance; contains all tho modern improve?
ments, together with some original fea?
tures, and in mechanical execution and
excellence of materials, will comparo
with any thing of the kind made in this
country or in Europe. We noticed with
groat satisfaction tho performance of tho
pump, which does its duty whenever it
is desired, it matters not whether the
train is standing, in slow motion, or in
rapid motion. On the trial trip, the lo?
comotive worked to the complete satis?
faction of tho builder, and mado a
smooth, steady and regular run. Every
part of tho machinery worked to a chnrin
Hko yurts of ono harmonious whole. But
this was not tho only feature of the occa?
sion to interest the excursionists. We
took, on tho occasion, our seat in a now
and handsome coach, just from the com?
pany shops. This coach for passengers
is one of the finest and most completo
that wo have ever seen, and we believe
it is as good a coach as is constructed in
tho establishments at tho North. We
' were informed that the materials through
out Aro of So Uth?rn wood-the walnut
and the maple from North Carolina, and
the pine used from. South Carolina. The
workmanship, inoluding tho upholstery
and the painting, seemed to ns excellent,
and the whole work reflects care, taste
and judgment. In this connection, we
may say that we were informed that our
State furnishes all the woods needed in
the manufacture of cars, but the trouble
is to get the lumber sawed and delivered.
This locomotive and the coach tb whioh
wo have referred, were built at the com?
pany chops hero. Th uso shops now givo
employment to about eighty men, have
been constructed since tho war, and aro
now in excellent working trim. The lo?
comotive is tho first built throughout,
not only in this Stats, but porhops in
tho South. The company has been build?
ing its own coaches sinco tho war, and
we learn that thero is but ono of North?
ern make on the road. The fact of the
matter is, the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta Railroad is in good hands and
is, wo believe, tho best managed railroad
in tho South. Ita President, its Super?
intendent, its Treasurer, its Freight Su?
perintendent, its Muster Machinist, and
tho officials, us far as we know them, are
tho right men in the right place.
We desire, especially, to make honora?
ble mention of tho enterprise and skill
evinced in the turning ont of such work
as we have witnessed. It shows what wo
can do at home, and how we may make
ourselves industrially independent and
keep our money at homo. Wo must not
omit to state that a locomotive can be
made cheaper here than bought at the
North, and that the coach wo rode in,
cost but a little moro than one-half what
it could have been purchased for abroad.
In conclusion, we wish to congratulate
Mr. T. D. Kline upon his offspring in
mechanics, the fino locomotive, tho
Lexington. In times like these, he who
completes a work like this deserves more
credit than one who makes a speech or
composes au epic.
