COLUMBIA, S. C.
Friday Morning, May 27,1870.
S?lt-Rell*ri4e~-Tb.e Subit?neo vs. tile
lu this Southland, the tendency ever
has been in oar people too much to for?
get the virtue of self-reliance. It may
bo that the institution of African Blavery
had this effect upon the charaoter of the
Southern people. It was in the late war
between the States, that the South re?
ceived its first stem bat wholesome les?
son on this point. The people of the
South first thought that their Northern
political allies wonld como to their aid
in the issue they had resolved to make.
This dream was broken, when tho people
of the North rose en masse to uni to in the
war against us. Next, it was confidently
hoped and believed that, under the
presumed power of king COTTON, fo?
reign or European assistance was to bo
counted upon. But no Eughiud and no
France came to our side in our unequal
struggle. At last, the South began to
realize that "who would bo free, them?
selves must etrike the blow;" but the
?lesson was received and acted upon at a
late period. The South, thrown upon
her own resources, made a grand effort,
developed resources not dreamed of be?
fore, and, although ultimately over?
whelmed and beaten on au unequal field,
?did not succumb until she had extorted
'the tribute of admiration from the world,
and made it consistent with honor and
duty to lay aside her undishonored
standards. The war ended. The South
had received her first lesson of self-reli?
ance in the school of war. It seems,
however, that she was not thoroughly
impressed. ? period of civil trial came
upon the South. Hore, again, we re?
peated the mistake of other days. RE
CONSTRUCTION was put on foot in thc
South. Did the whites of the Sou tl
"upon themselves depend?" They die
not. Hoping that relief would come frorr
Heaven or earth, in some way or other,
the business of reconstruction was wei
nigh closed and the nail olinohed, before
the Southern whites threw their power;
into action. It was too late. "Masterly
inactivity" had failed them, aud Provi
dence did not stretch oat it? hand tc
those who had failed to help themselves
So, now, again. The field of effort, ii
behalf of good and honest government, i
opon before us, and again there are mei
who are for letting the forces of natur
work. Are we never to learn the dut;
of EFFORT? Are we never to acquire th
philosophy of SELF-KELIAJ?CE? Is it ti
be that some Delilah is again to cut ol
tho looks of the Southern Samson? I
inglorious inactivity again to ba ou
political bane? We know that there i
virtue in PATIENCE. Bat we know, also
that there is vast power in ACTION
Patience and quiet endurance, in thei
place, MO good qualities; bat there ar
times, and these are of them, when al
the philosophy of our duty is compre
hended in wise and well-directed activity
It was patient, in Micawber, to wait fo
"something to turn up," but it woul
have been wiser to go to work and tur
up Bomething. The quiet forces of ni
ture! Of these, much is said. We kno<
that they exist. They exist in the soi
and yet man's labor and man's skill mu:
be applied to help them on and giv
them play. They exist in tho huma
frame, and yet the physician gives hi
active medicines, and tho surgeon usc
caustic and lancet, scarifies the skir
pierces the tumor or lops off the exen
Let these principles be applied to ou
situation political, and oar readers wi
understand our philosophy. It is nc
new. It is not original. It is thc ph
losophy of history. It is the philosoph
of common sense. It means "business.
So much for the point political. TL
same reasoning holds for tho point ii
dastrial. Upon ourselves we must d<
pond-must mainly rely. Take th
question of LABOR. NO intelligent mn
doubts tho efficacy of immigration. TL
accession of a good and indusfriul elm
of laborers and settlers from abroad i
highly desirablo in South Carolina. Bi
is it wiso to depend and mainly roly upo
this element of strength? It is not. Tl
process is both slow and experimenta
Wo must primarily look to the elemen
at home, at hand, round about us. Tl
people of tho South must utilizo and di
velop fully their homo, their native ri
sources. White and black-tho poop
of the soil-they must work active!,
persistently, industriously. Take tl
question of CAFTTAIJ. Foreign capitul
certainly desirable. Wo need eapit
hero. But shnll we depend upon foreif
or Northern capital, and leave uati'
capital unemployed? Here, too, v
should upon ourselves depend. Wc ci
and plead for capital, and yet there
capital, and a good deal of it, locked i
in this State and in the South. If v
have resources to develop ut tho Sout
lot native capital be put forth. If \
have advantages to- be utilized, let nur
own people derive tho benefits there?
from accruing. This, then, is our phi?
losophy industrial. Open the gates wide
to the immigrant and the settler. Give a
cordial welcome to the capitalist from
abroad. Bot, in the meantime, let us
upon ourselves depend. Use our domes?
tic labor to the best advantage-employ
our own capitnl freely and intelligently.
This is the substance. Let us not lose
sight of this resident power. Whilst wo
send out tbe Macedonian invitatiou of
come over and help us, let UB gird our
loins and with ungloved hands work for
our regeneration. Self-reliance is the
spring whence our power will flow.
The Juno Convention.
In every political movemeut, tho first
thing is to gather POWER. We are, there?
fore, pleased to find that our up-country
cotemporaries favor tho meeting of this
body. Let every County in the State be
represented by good and discreet mon,
representing all tho varied interests of
tho community. After organizing its
power, tbe second thing is to decide
how to use it. We aro satisfied to leave
this with the Convention. If this power
shall bo used wisely and efficiently, the
Stato cannot but bo benefittcd.
Tlic Mountain Holocuust tu \cvv Yoi R
A Family ltoastctt Alive.
Additional intelligence iu regard to tho
great forest conflagrations in Sullivan,
Orange, Delaware, Dutchess and Madi?
son Counties of this State, has beeu re?
ceived. Never before have these moun?
tain fires raged eo furiously or extended
over so large au amount of territory. It
is generally believed by persons liviug
in thoso Couuties, that tho conflagration
M'as started by tho hnnd of au incendia?
ry. In thoso regions, whero tho fires
bioko out, live many persons who ave
called Gypsies, who reside in shanties
which have been erected in remote nooks
on tho mountain-sido and other solitary
places that ore seldom reached by the
more civilized world. These Gypsies aro
described as a thriftless community, hav?
ing no regard for, and, therefore, no love
for tho industrious farmers sod woods?
men who live near them, and it is be?
lieved that they set fire to tho under?
brush, well knowing that the flumes
would extend to tho forest proper aud
sprend many miles iu extent.
Usually theso fires-which more or less
occur every spring-have been confined
to districts of limited extent and value,
but this spring they have.ravaged thou?
sands of acres of valuable woodland,
destroying millions of trees and cords of
cut wood, logs, ship joints, and bark.
The loss, so far as it has been ascer?
tained, is estimated ut over 85,000,000,
not one cent of which is covered by in?
surance. For the most part, tho fires
havo been confined to the mountains,
but have covered in their march an ex?
tent of territory 100 milos in length.
Tho Sullivan County forests have been
burnt for a distance of twenty miles.
The Delaware County woodlands have
been devastated some fifteen miles. In
both of theso localities the fires aro still
raging. In Orango County tho flaming
tempest bas spent its strength, and tho
mountain ridges and hill-sides are a
smouldering waste of land.
The rivers and brooks were blood-red
from tho reflected flame?. lu soma
places, thc water was steaming bot.
Thousands of fishes, snakes, birds and
squirrels perished and floated upon tho
surface. Tho crags and rocky walls of
tho mountain-sides were baked by the
intense beat, and mnny of the boulders
are cracked and crumbled. Hero and
tbere tho bones of wild animals (aud
some cattle)ltell the story of the holo?
caust tragedy. The deep gorges and
ravines seemed like miniature gates of
the bottomless pit, gaping out fierce
flames, smoko and heat. Whoro tho
trees were dry and piles of wood and
bark hud been stored, there arose vast
volumes of white and red flame, tower?
ing toward the sky. Such was tho terri?
fying influence of tho sight, that tho
dumb beasts, the horses and cattle, in
tho vicinity fled in alarm, and tho night
ech?os were resonant with their blent
ings, neighs and lowings.
By far the most awful spectacle and
calamity yet reported occurred on Sun?
day night, near Deposit station. As
darkness gathered over tho dying day
the fire hud reached the baso of tho West
Mountain, and before 9 o'clock had com?
pletely encircled ono of tho prominent
peaks as with a girdle' of fire. The
flumes roared and crackled with horrible
sound as they swept up tho hill-side.
Tho glare brilliantly illuminated tho
whole adjacent region. A party of
sportsmen returning through a gorge on
tho opposite sido heard shouts aud cries
of distress, apparently proceeding from
the flaming forest. Looking up through
the flames and smoke, they thought they
discovered tho forms of a man and wo?
man upon a rocky height, swaying their
arms to aud fro. Tho cries continued,
mid ono of the party is sure that ho
afterwards caught a glimpse of a child
in the woman's arms. Soon after, tho
walls of linnie shut ont all view, aud tho
erie* ceased. Tho horrified witnesses,
driven away bj tho heat to a greater dis?
tance, lingered as near as possible, but
neither saw nor heard anymore. It is
believed that the persons thus seen wero
a mau, wife and child named Hough,
who lived in a shanty iu a remote place
on the barrons, and in escaping across
tho ridge were hemmed in upon tho
rocks whero seen, and so perished in tho
conflagration. Search is to bo made for
their remain?.-New York World.
GONE UP.-Tho New York Sun con?
fesses that tho Republican party of tho

Horrara of Wir?
Wo extract the following from the re?
port of the proceedings of the General
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, published in the Memphis Daily
Dr. Shipp spoke of resolutions of sym?
pathy passed by the last General Con?
ference, affecting the church at Colum?
bia, 8. C. ; of its sufferings at the hands
of war; of ils former prosperity; its
boundless liberality; of tho generosity of
its members. Ho said that uf all suffer?
ers in Columbia, tho Methodist Church
boro the most grievous calamities. The
church building was reduced to ?shes,
the homes of its members wero burned,
and all their property* swept away. Tho
congregation is too poor to rebuild their
house of worship, und have only a little
chapel inadequate to tho wants of the
Dr. Sehon moved tho ndoptiou of n re?
solution providing for a concession of all
that is usked by tho petition.
Dr. Smith, of South Carolina, said
that tho church spoken of had suffered
ns none others. Its people were poorer
than those of any church or city in the |
South, and that South Carolina was in j
tho worst coudition of any in the South.
Tho difference in the social nud indus?
trial condition of the two States, South
Carolina and Georgin, was most strongly
marked and palpable. In Carolina the
people were still trodden under foot by
the harshest task-masters, who held
offices with not the remotest idea of pro?
moting ends of public good. Tboy only
sought to oppress and rob the people
nnd gather wealth for themselves. Tho
ownership of real estate in Columbia be?
gets poverty. A house that is rented for
SGOO is taxed $575. Columbia, once
famed for the intelligence, public and
private morals of it3 people, and for the
genius, eloquence and learning of in?
dividual citizens, whoso lofty character
and many virtues gave tone lo society,
is reduced to tho utmost strait: of
poverty, and subjected to every process
designed to degrade nud destroy. The
tasteful scholarship of Legare, the
matchless moral and intellectual gran?
deur of Calhoun, tho splendid oratory
of Proston and McDuflio, once mnde
Columbia tho abiding place of all that
made life delightful. The condition of
tho ruined city to-day presented a
mournful contrast with its pristine glory
and splendor. It is sad and sickening
to contemplate thc present nnd dream of
tho past. Of wealth thero is none, and
poverty in its rags and gaberdine bas in?
vaded alike the palaces of thc rich aud
hovels of the poor. Indigent us are
these people, they are generous to the
last degree. They sbaro with one
another the little that is left thom, and
widows and orphans aro not forgotten
by those who have moro than the abso?
lute wauts of life demand. The little
chapel they occupy as a place of worship,
will not contain the congregation that
often gathers about its doorway, and
they often secured thouseof buildings of
other denominations, especially of the
Baptists, who had been very kind.
Bishops Capers, Dunwoody and other
great thinkers and orators of Method ism,
sleep in tho churchyard hard by. Their
monuments had been overthrown or de?
stroyed by bloody, red-bonded, war and
desecreation, and horrible outrage, and
insufferable calamities marked every
feature of tho church's fortunes. Will
not those more blest in abundance help
those so utterly impoverished? The
sympathies of this flourishing city would
be touched if it may listen to a simple
recital of woes which have befallen the
church at Columbia.
Bishop Andrews approved tho utter?
ances of Dr. Smith. Ho had dedicated
the Church at Columbia, yenrs ago, to
tho Most High. Capers was there, and
muny of tho purest and best, and mest
learned mon. The character of the con?
gregation, its virtues and Christian worth
had not been too highly colored, and
there eau bo no worthier object of our
beneficence. It was first in all Christian
virtues. Many of its strongest members
havo fallen beneath tho weight of terri?
ble calamities, and thc survivors aro
hardly able to livo. There was once no
limit to their generosity and deeds of
Christian charity. Help them; they will
soon be able to help themselves, and a
church edifice worthy of the people will
soon rise from tho ashes of that which
Dr. McAnnally spoke with tearful eyes
when he said that each member of tho
Conference should forward a sum for the
purpose of rebuilding tho Columbia
church, and erecting a memorial worthy
of the fame and virtues of Dr. Capers.
A singular and horriblo accident oc?
curred at Colgate's soap factory, New
York, Monday afternoon. A lad named
Charles Platt, with some other em?
ployees, wns sky-larking about tho hatch?
way during tho noon hour, when Platt's
foot slipped and ho fell through tho
hatch; tho "dummy," which, by tho jar,
beenmo detached, ran down upon his
body, crushing him to death instantly.

A REMAHKAIILU STOUT.-A few days
siuco, tboro was a colored man in the
city with a sear entirely around bis nock.
It is stated that during the closing days
of tho lato war bo was tried by ii druin*
head court-martial, found guilty, sen?
tenced to deutb, duly hung, and pro?
nounced dead hy two surgeons in at?
tendance, one of whom secured tho body.
He thou restored the banged man to life.
Although ho was to all appearances dead,
yet the vital spark was uut quito extinct.
Tho hanged mun bid himself until thc
war was over, and then settled on a farm
within thirteen miles of tho city, where
be is now ut work. Tho scar alluded to
is but tho marks of tho rope bj- which
ho was suspi'uded. The execution, it is
alleged, took place in Kershaw Countj-.

THE VENEZUELAN REVOLUTION.-The
latest news from Venezuela informs ns
of the success of tho rebels under Guz
mau Dlnuco. On the 27th of last month,
uftor three daj-s' bard fighting, the in?
surgents succeeded ia occupying tho
capital. According to our correspon?
dent, houses and stores were sacked and
robberies were carried on to a fearful ex?
tent by the soldiers of the victorious

plotting to secure the overthrow of the
established government, and he bas ap?
parently succeeded in his efforts.
ALFKED LI. TYLEU.-The United States
Railroad and Mining Messenger pays a
high compliment to Alfred L. Tjder, tho

congratulates Mr. Tyler on tho staff he

tifying to his ability and faithfulness.

ferences of political opinion, there are
in South Carolina at present two distinct
parties, "tho robbers and the robbed."
It is now certain that at least a largo
portion of the robbed will attend, through
delegates, the June Convention. Would

The advertisement of these celebrated
springs appears in the PIIOXIX to-day.
They are now open for the reception of
visitors, and aro prepared, nuder the en?
larged capacities, to accommodate from
1,500 to 2,000 guests. Tho reputation
of the White Sulphur is -.io extended that
little need be said in commendation of
it. As tho centre of fashion, it has no
rival iu the South, and is fast rising to
tho popularity of the great resorts of tho
North. In point of tho value of its
water und the beauty of its sceuery, it is
far ahead of them, and should attract
many of those who aro in the habit of
spending their summer vacations at Sara?
toga and Long Branch. Now that tho
railroad is completed to the White Sul?
phur, nud that access is so easy, we ex?
pect to seo thc number of its guests
greatly increased and circumscribed only
by the capacity to accommodate. But
tho enterprise and resources of the
Messrs. Peyton aro equal to auy emer?
gency, nnd if they haven't room enough
for all, they will mako it.
