COLUMBIA, S. C.
Saturday Morning, April 28.1870.?
Reform tn Oar Government.
The Anderson Intelligencer, whilst ac?
cepting the propositions of the Press
Conference, is of the opinion that tho
colored voters of the State have not been
impressed at all by this recognition, and
goes on to pronounce against a Conven?
tion, preferring the ..guerrilla" mode of
warfare, such as was first suggested by
the Chester Reporter. It proposes that
each County shall do the best it can.
We oannot but regret the conclusion ar?
rived at by our ootemporary-located, as
it is, in a section of tho State which hus
been regarded as the Beat of much of the
effective auti-radical power of the State.
Wo oannot soe tho wisdom of ignoring
ORGANIZATION. It occurs to US, that it is
only by a general organization, extend?
ing all through the State and embracing
all the elements of opposition to tho
present regime, that we can make au ef?
fective effort in behalf of the reforms we
seek in the administration of our public
affairs. We earnestly advocate union,
action and harmony. And we are ready
at the proper time, to sink individual
views in order to advance what our poli?
tical associ?tes may decido to be the most
effective method to rescue our people
from the perils of misgovernment and
misrule, -fraud and corruption. By ail
means, "let us have organization. By all
means, if minor differences as to the
proper programme prevail, let the pro?
posed Convention assemble and let us
agree upon a line of political action that
shall redound to the relief of the people
and the improvement of their condition.
We hope that our co temporaries will urge
their people to make this Convention n

And thus refers to the PHONIX.
In another place, it says
"Richland Awake," and thus refers to
the PHONIX. We are as indifferent to the
assaults as to the "damning with faint
praise" of the News. That journal will
perhaps yet learn that the PHONIX has
its own views, and does not concern itself
particularly about tho construction which
the News may choose to put upon its
line of political action. It discourses
about the "machinations of timorous
friends," and refers to this journal. We
would like to know what is meant by
these "machinations?" Does the open
and candid expression of viows, looking
to the weal of tho State, embrace its
idea of "machinations?" If not, and it
uses the term in its uncomplimentary
sense, thou we aro at a loss to know to
what reference is made.

AUGUSTA, GA., April 21,1870.
In company with about 100 Colum?
bians, abd large delegations from other
portions of the State, as well as North
Carolin?, we paid a visit to this beauti?
ful City of Oaks, to bo present at the
annual meeting o* '.ho Charlotte, Colum?
bia and Augusta Railroad. We had a
special train for the occasion, every oar
of which had been constructed in the
company's shops, and were drawn by the
locomotivo "Lexington," also the work
of their skillful employees. She is a
substantially built, perfect piten of ma?
chinery, and has been greatly admired
by tho machinists of the three cities,
which our pet railroad connects. Owing
to an obstraction on tho track, below
Charlotte, the Lexington received a se?
vere jar, which somewhat affected her
working powors, so that the train WOB
delayed; forced to run out of schedule
time, and did not arrive in Augusta until
several hours after she was actually due
much to the annoyance of Conductor
Wolfe and Engineer Gay. On tho in?
vitation of Master Mechanic Kline-who
accompanied the excursionists-we ac?
cepted the engineer's seat; but very soon
concluded, that "a pluce in tho picture"
not quito so "near the flashing of the
furnace-fire, and the smoke and roar of
the machinery," was suited to n nervous
temperament, and therefore took a back
seat. Tho damage to the machine waB
repaired shortly ofter the arrival of the
train, and the return trip was made "on
time" and to the entire satisfaction of all
parties. Aa the train crossed Broad
street, there was a genoral skedaddle or
stampede among tho males, and a foot?
race, in which short and tall, lean and
stout, vied with eaoh other in their en?
deavors to reach the varions hotels, as
the opinion correctly prevailed that lodg?
ings would he very BCurce. We succeeded
in securing the use of a room, (merely
to mnko a necessary change of raiment,)
at the popular hostelry, the Planters'.
This establishment is and has always
been regarded one of the principal ho?
tels in the South. The attaches are
competent and earnest in their endeavors
to please; tho rooms aro comfortably
furnished; the cuisine the very best, and
tho servants attentive.
Augusta is certainly a charming old
city; the streets are very wide and mauy
of them have double rows of water oaks
in the middle, besides singlo rows along
thc side-walks; the majority of the houses
ure built of wood; but there are many
elegant private edifices, constructed of
moro durable material, which compel
' the beholder to diverge a little from the
! tenth commandment. Summerville-ac?
cessible by horse-cars-is a perfect gar
don-spot, and many of tho wealthy citi?
zens of Augusta have palatial residences,
with magm fie en t surroundings. There
are excellent ronds in the vicinity, und
fast horses and showy vehicles are by no
means raro. The weather, during our
trip, was particularly fine, and ns tho
trees aro now fully decked in their
spring livery of various shades of green,
the attractions may be conceived.
Girardey's Opera Houso has been oc?
cupied for several nights by a really fine
company of comedians, under thu ma?
nagement of Miss Laura Keene; aud on
Wednesday night, there was a particu?
larly brilliant array-the boxes being
filled with ladies in full dress, who, at
the conclusion of tho performance, at?
tended tho "Convention Ball." This
ball was given by the liberal-minded aud
hospitable citizens of Augusta to the
stockholders of Hie Charlotte, Columbia
and Augusta Railroad, at Masonic Hall,
and was, in every respect, a success. Thia
city is famous for handsome ladies and
ugly men, (Col. Meredith, of course, is
au exception,) und on this occasion there
was a rally in force, and as there were
extensivo reinforcements of fair creatures
from South and North Carolina, the
bachelor attendants at tho ball occupied
a fearful and very precarious positiou;
bright eyes flashed in every direction,
rivaling the diamonds, which were worn
in profusion. We attempted to obtain a
list of those ludies who, from the ele?
gance of their dresses, or tho beauty of
their faces, attracted special admiration;
but, after circumnavigating and sailing
across tho room several times, pencil and
paper were thrown aside-the job being
found too difficult of accomplishment,
from tho superabundance of material;
we, therefore, merely mention a few
without specifying whether looks or ap?
parel were tho magnets: Mrs. General
Wright, of Augusta; Mndame LeVert, of
Mobile; Misa Collier and Miss Russel, of
Augusta; tho golden-haired Miss Wylie,
of tho Palmetto State; the belle of Char?
lotte, Miss Myers; Miss Daniels, Mrs.
Moses and Mrs. Chichester, of Augusta;
Miss Bowell, of New Jersey; Miss Mor?
gan, of Augusta, we believe. Dancing
was kept up until 3 a. m.-of course,
winding up with the ever-popular Virgi?
nia Reel. The floor manugers-Messrs.
T. S. Morgan, J. K. Evans, W. H. Bar
rett, G. A. Whitehead and C. H. Phi
nizy-understood their business tho?
roughly, and were hero, there and every?
where, as occasion required. An elegant
supper was provided by W. C. Hewitt,
Esq., of the Globe Hotel; and, although
tho tablos were filled with hungry mor?
tals nt least four times, the supply of
good things was constantly kept, up, and
No. 800 fared equally UB well ns No. 1.

Then, sirs, let ns again urge, that oar
people, having "accepted thesitnatioo,"
having with patience and fortitude borne
the results of the struggle for their free?
dom, our polioy and our dignity alike
forbid us actively to meddle with the
gt eat problem now demanding solution in
our midst. True, wo aro vitally inter?
ested in that solution, and possibly, if
the war had not taken pluoe we might
have influenced tho result to a greater
degree-that we could huve deferred the
issue, we do not believe. As it is, we
must stand quiet lookors-on upou the
experiment which is making in our
midst, and at our cost; intiuenciug it
only by a passive resistauce, which, like
the inertia of mechanics, may yet prove
stronger than the forces now so actively
engaged against us. This is the result
of the war-a war in which he who took
the humblest part may glory-and we
abide by it.
Our fuith in tho righteousness of our
cause is not shaken, nor can we permit
ourselves to lend a helping hand in join?
ing togethor what wo believe the God of
nations iutended to separato, to unito
under ono government, as one people,
those upon whom He has set His seal of
difference. We believe that this will yet
be a government of our people, a coun?
try of our race. How and when, we can?
Now we see the descendants of sa
vpges, who, captured by their own coun?
trymen, were only saved from being the
slaves of other savages, or tbe food of
their captors, by their purchase and
transportation to this country-wo see
the descendants of these people, whom
their slavery through generations had.
it was supposed, cou verted from heathens
into Christians, taught the arts of civili?
zation, and raised to a lovel never at?
tained by their own people in their own
laud, but who since their freedom have
gradually been fulling back towards the
state of their ancestors, both as heat lieus
and savages-these people we see dark?
ening the whole Southern Atlantic aud
Gulf ooasts, on the one hand, and on
the other the yellow heathen, who is not
a savage, pouring in countless hordes
upon the Puci?o coast, und between the
two wo find tho remnant of tho red mun
at war with all. Aud with all the^o va?
rious people in her border, the Govern?
ment at Washington announces that Un/
"rights of citizens of tho United States
to vote shall not be denied or abridged
by tho United States or by any State, on
account of race, color or previous condi?
tion of servitude."
We may well be troubled iu our sleep,
and, like Nebuchadnezzar of old, behold
a vision; and ns his vision, when inter?
preted, was only a history that was yet
to be, and as history repeats itself, we,
too, may behold a vision. And our vis?
ion shall be "a great i'i<age, whoso
brightness shall be excellent and the
form thereof terrible. This imago's
head shall bo fine gold, his breast aud
his arms of silver, his belly and his
thighs cf brass, his legs of iron, his feet
part of iron and part of clay."
Aud iu our dream we, too, may look
till we see "a stone cut without bauds
smite the imago upon his feet, that are
of iron and clay, and brake them to
pieces." And, thou, may we behold
"the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver,
and the gold broken iu pieces together,
and becomo like the chaff of the summer
threshing floors, aud tho wind carrying
them away that no place may be fouud
Unliko the king of old, we will not
need an interpreter, to make known unto
us the dream, and tell us that this head
of fine gold was the Government of the
United States as established by our fore?
fathers, and that after it came the go?
vernments of silver and brass, the times
of prosperity that hardeued men's
hearts, and that then arose the fourth
government, "strong ns iron : forasmuch
as irou bronketh in pieces and subdueth
all things, and that as iron that breaketh
all these it hath broken in pieces and
"And that whereas we saw iron mixed
with miry clay, they have mingled them?
selves with the seed of men, but they
shall not cleave one to another, even as
iron is not mixed with clay."
For ourselves, wo aro willing to wait
for tho stone cut without bauds, that
shall "break in pieces the iron, the
brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold,"
und iu the meanwhile passively to sub?
mit ourselves to that government which
God has permitted to be established over
us, and which, in His own way, is work?
ing out His own purposes.

THE IMMIGRATION CONVENTION.-Tho
cpuestiou of supplying the Southern
country with a white population has oc?
cupied the minds of all interested in her
welfare ever since the abolit ion of slavery.
So far, however, nothing practical has
resulted from any efforts at its solution.
In this Stnte we have been especially
unfoilunate. The well-organized sys?
tem established by the Legislature of
18?5, under the efficient management of
General John A. Wagoner, was com?
pletely upset, aud all the progress it had
already made rendered nugatory by the
change of government; and tho efforts
of individuals aud private societies have
been restricted, for want of means, to a
very narrow compass. At last, however,
wo have a brighter prospect. A conven?
tion is to be held iu Charleston on tho
third of next month, for the purpose of
devising means to bring about the all-to
be-desired influx of population from
abroad. The class of gentlemen, whose
uames are annouueed from the various
Districts of the State, as delegates to
tho couveution, aud the enlightened
views in regard to this subjeot generally,
which have recently beeu promulgated
through tho public prints, lends us to
?believe that this convention must result
in great practicul good, and that the era
of white immigration to the South is
about to dawu. The arrangements for
the convention are aunouueed in detail
in un advertisement which appears in
CRUMBS.-Messrs. Hudson Sc Menet
have furnished us a copy of their "An?
