Behind tb? Times-Tlie Old va. the New
Our ootemporary of the Sumter News,
who seems to hold that the Press Con?
ference made a fatal error when it sug?
gested to the people of South Carolina
that it was time to accept accomplished
facts-Buch as the fact of the fifteenth
amendment-and to take, as it wero, a
new departnre in the matter of political
movement, says it has taken its stand at
the poss of ita Thermopylae, nud inti?
mates that right there it will die. Let us
beg oar cotemporary not thus to die.
Does not the News understand that many
of -those old time sentiments are now
discarded, in this age of fast men and
fast women, and fast horses and fast
things in general? Take the case of
Cartius, who leaped in the yawning gulf
that refused to "shut up" until it should
receive the most precious thing in Borne.
Why, it is now very generally admitted
that he did a very foolish act. To think,
too, that ho should havo carried with
him his best suit nf armor and his finest
horse, and did not have his life insured
in tho "Piedmont and Arlington," for
the benefit of his family? "Why, the
general sentiment, in this common-sense
age, is, that Curtius was u foolish fellow,
and did he live now, and were he to do
the same thing ogaiu, who can doubt but
that a New York jory would decide that
at the moment just before spurring his
charger for the fatal leap, ho was non com?
Take tho case of the man who thought
it was "glorious to die in arms"-who
originated the idea that "it is sweet and
honorable to dio for one's country."
Why, this thing is now exploded-utterly
exploded. It is now very generally con?
ceded that it is far better to live for one's
country, or rather, wo should say, on
one'scountry. "Glorious to die in arms!"
Absurd thought. How moro glorious to
live a politician in tho South, or a mem?
ber of a railroad ring, oran office-holder.
Take the case of Cambronne, who is
Credited on historic page with the grand
reply: "The Old Guard dies, bul does not
surrender." Victor Hugo says that Cam?
bronne made no such reply-but re?
sponded in a word less classical than
represented, but not less emphatic. And
so wo might go on and continue our
illustrations, to show that tho "dead past
must bury its dead." We hope, there?
fore, that the Sumter News will roverse
its judgment. If the stranger has to
say, "at Laccdemon," that the News did
die at its Thermopylae, or if it did dye,
dyed its hair only, we will answer for it,
that an indulgent public will adjudge
its non-immolation as entirely excusable.
Let us put our house in order, not to
die, but to live.
"OUR POSITION."-"Tho Columbia
Guardian can't comprehend the position
of those papers which dare dissent from
the doings of the 'Press Conference.'
"We will not acquiesce in oppressive,
illegal und unconstitutional legislation,
for the sake of political power, auy
sooner than wo would barter our princi?
ples for office or the hope of reward.
"We trust, as far as the Democrat is
concerned, that 'the position'is now un?
Just so. That is our position, and has
been from the first. IVe stand shoulder
lo shoulder with the Democrat, in the pass
of Thermopt/la;."-Sumter News.

POLITICS IN GREECE AND POLITICS IN
SOUTH CAROLINA.-A correspondent of
the London Times tells a neat story il?
lustrating tho truo origin and meaning
of brigandage in Greece. Tho British
embassy rejoiced in a stately old Greek
porter, whose conduct was irreproacha?
ble. The blamoloss siro unluckily pos?
sessed a prodigal son, who fell amoug
thieves and became n most masterful
robber. In the way of his new profes?
sion he spoiled some English officers,
and though tbo fact that tho sufferers
served Great Britain, which power
"stands no nonsense," led to nn almost
immediate restoration of their valuables,
tho Minister thought it necessary to in?
form his porter of the evil deeds of his
progeny. The good old mau, clasping
his hands in grief, exclaimed: "Ah!
your Excellency, and I who had always
begged and entreated him to avoid poli?
It would seem that politics in Greece

Tho citizens of Lexington, whito and

THE EMIGRATION TO TEXAS.-A corres?
pondent of the St. Louis Republican,
who traveled recently with a body of
cmigrauts from the Southern States
across the Mississippi to Toxas, and con?
versed with them, gives the result of his
inquiries. Most of them were never
slave nor laud owners to auy considera?
ble extent-some were mechanics-the
lot of all was to work for a living. In
slave times they made a comfortable sup?
port, and wore not brought iuto direct
contact or competition with tho negro.
But sinco abolition, tho entire labor sys?
tem has been changed. The large landed
proprietors do not seem inclined to sell
portions of their land, or to encourage
the establishment of small farms. In
leasing, they lease to tho best bidder,
whether whito man or freedman; iu hir?
ing, they biro tho cheapest labor, white
or black. Tho freedman has the advan?
tage in thnt it costs him but little to live,
and also in tho fact that ho will save ex?
pense by stealing. For reasons of this
kind, these white people como to Texas,
whore there is ample room for them to
choose situations-where land is cheap
and fertile, and the climate genial-where
everything needed by mun can be raised
in abundance-where tho colored popu?
lation is small, compared with tho whito
-where there was not so much destruc?
tion by tho war, nuil where the advantago
of railroads penetrating iu every direc?
tion is soon to be enjoyed.
Ax OLD MERCHANT VICTIMIZES THE
MERCHANTS OF SAVANNAH.-On Tuesday,
tho Savannah community was more tbtin
shocked, it was actually fermented, by
tho discovery of immense forgeries on
tho part of Messrs. Epstein & Einstein,
a well established dry goods firm, carry?
ing on business at No. 119 Congress
street. As soon as tho forgeries becatno
known, Epstein fled, but Einstein was
arrested and gave bail in the sum of
80,000; but he denies any knowledge of
the forgerios. When Einstein was ar?
rested, tho goods of the firm were levied
upou. The stock, though large, is not
sufficient to cover the losses, which it is
believed will amount to almost ?70,000.
Wisconsin law is evidently modeled
after that of the Modes and Persiaus. A
life convict in the State prison there
having, during the recent fire, saved tho
building aud its inmates from certain
destruction by blowing off tho steam in
tho eugine room, at tho peril of his own
lifo and at tho cost of a severe scalding,
wo are told that "a movement is on foot
to secure bis pardon, partly on account
of this exhibition of bravery, and partly
becauso it bas beou proved that bo was

him." Unaided iunocenco, puro and
simple, would, of course, afford no

EVERY ONE TO ms TASTE.-A few days

heo River shot and killed au alligator.
On cutting him up there was found in
bis stomach a large lightwood knot, a
whole bottle, and tho neck and bottom
of another, and a bunch of hair about
a half of a foot in diameter. Tho
edges of tho brokon pieces of bottle
were perfectly smooth. lt is evideut
that tiiis animal had not been dieting

WASHINGTON, D. C., May 25, 18T0.
The fifteenth amendment bill, or as it
is now called tho enforcement bill, as
amended by the Conference Committee,
is most stringent. The sections of the
bill imposing fines and penalties on all
persons who, in any way, prevent colored
men from voting, aro retained, and
United States Courts aro authorized to
investigate any election where an affida?
vit is made that colored voter? are re?
fused. But the thirteenth seotion of the
bill, whioh allowed the use of land and
naval forces on application of tho United
Stales Marshals to euforeo the Act, is so
modified as to allow only the judiciary
to determino tho necessity of United
States military aid, and only on their
application to tho President shall tho
military bo usod. This modification of
tho thirteenth section has in part satis?
fied the objection made by tho Demo?
crats, that the Presidont would, under
this bill, bo empowered to call to his aid
the military in carrying any election.
The Virginia election, which takes placo
to-morrow, was mado a pretence for
hurrying the bill through both Houses,
and get tho President's signature in time
to bo effective in tho election.
Unexpectedly yesterday, in tho Com?
mittee of tho Whole, on the consular and

citizens. This brought up thu Cuban
question, which was warmly discussed by
different members, nono of whom dared
to utter n syllable in opposition to accord?

Your readers have no doubt seen an
account of tho attempted bribo of Sena?
tor Carpenter, by ono Lewis Porter.
This mau Porter is assistant postmaster
of this city, and beforo his appointment
to this position, was known about thc
city as a member of tho Third House,
and as a tool for doing Michigan Chan?
dler's dirty work. Chandler succeeded ic
having Colonel Alexander, a Republican
and a soldier of four years standing, re
moved from tho post office, and a mac
by tho narnu of Edmonds, from Michi
gan, appointed in his place, and this
man Porter, from tho sumo State, ap?
pointed assistant, neither having evoi
been in the army or done auything foi

is still in the post office, although h<
attempted lo bribe a Senator, while
General Scheopf, a soldier through tin
whole war, was recommended by Logai
and his committee for removal, and wai
removed from the patent office while hi
was only a middle party in tho Butle

ism-Grant, Creswell, tho Senato, am

An interesting speech on tho position
of the Pules in the present Austrian
crisis was made bj Prince Czartoryski
lost Monday, at tho meeting of the Polish
Historical Society of Paris, held in com?
memoration of tho Polish Constitution
of May 3, 1791. He said that while
in Russian Poland the Poles have evory
year to deploro new acts of oppression,
u moro cheering prospect is offered them
by tho present condition of Austria. The
centralist system in that country has
now been overthrown by Polish states?
men, aud ono of them, Count Potocki, I
has been appointed by tho Emperor, to |
inaugurate a new policy as Premier.
Polaud is again called upon, ns she was
two centuries ago nuder her glorious
King Sobieski, to sustain and defend tho
Austro-Hungariau monarchy. That
State, which was formerly a bug-bear to
all Liberals, has now become tho hume of
liberty; aud its integrity and independ?
ence arc looked upon us indispensable
for the freedom of Europe and tho in?
terests of civilization, lt is to secure
this integrity aud independence that tho
Pules, who have formed in Austria their
hiBt refuge, are now laboring. Their
policy is no longer a policy of sentiment;
they bavo ceased to roly on distant and
barren sympathies; they found their
hopes only on au intimate mission with
their natural ally, who has tho same in?
terests and the same enemies as them?
selves. Convinced that their future is
indissolubly bouud up with tho destinies
of tho Hapsburg monarchy, they have
undertaken to introduce in Austria a
policy which shall reconcile tho unity
aud strength of the empire with a rea?
sonable autonomy for those provinces
which bear a distinct national character
aud historical rights. They must reject
a purely Slavonic policy, for the word
Sluvouiau bas of late years almost be?
come synonymous with Russian, and the
result of such policy can only be to eu
large Russia at thc expeuso of Austria,
and place the Czar in possession of Con?
stantinople. Tho Poles would rather
join the Germans in Austria than help
the Slavonians to become predominant
in the empire. A federalist policy would
be equally daugeous, for it would divide
Austria into seventeen little States, each
with its own separate legislature. Thc
prince concluded by stating bis political
programme. It is as follows: First, the
preservation, as tho most importaut ob?
ject tho Poles have iu view, of the uuity
and integrity of Hungary; second, tho
maintenance of a central Parliament of
Vienna; third, tho acceptance of tho
present constitution as the fundamental
law of tho Austro-Hungariau monarchy;
fourth, the grant of exceptional privileges
to Galicia and Bohemia as regards pub?
lic instruction, justice, and local ad?
ministration, by means of a special
agreement similar to that which has been
coucluded between Hungary and Croatia;
tiftil, tho establishment of a restricted
Reicbsrath for all tho provinces except
Galicia and Bohemia, and of a plenary
j Reiuhsruth, to include those provinces.

the existence of tho process by which

I had occasion to scud a telegram to Lou?
don the other day und in a. few minutes re?
ceived it reply, which led me to bupposo
that a serious error had been committed
by my agents, involving many thousand
pounds. I immediately went to the tele?
graph eifliee and asked to see my message.
The clerk said, "We can't show it to you,
as wo have sent it to London." "But,"
1 replied, "you must have my original
paper here; I wish to seo that." He
again said, "No, wo bavo not got it; it
is iu post oQieo at Loudon." "What do
you mean?" I asked, "Pray, let mo seo
tho paper I loft hero an hour ago."
"Well," said he, "if you must seo it, we
will get it back in a few minutes, but it
is now in Loudon." Ho rang a bell, anti
in live minutes or so producod my mes?

It seems that for somo mouths there
I has existed a pneumatic telegraph bo

and sent to their destination. I in qui red

yes; como round hero." Ho slipped a
number of messages into tho pasteboard
scroll, popped it into the tube, noel made
n signal. I put my oar to tho tubo and
heard a slight rumbling noiso for seven?
teen seconds, when a bell rang beside
me, indicating that the scroll hail arrived
at tho general post office, ?OO miles oil!
It almost took my breath to think of it.

The Republican Party Dead.
Tuesday's Democratic victory was tho 1
Waterloo defeat of Republicanism. It
was not merely the sign of weakness; it
waa the signal of collapse, the fore?
shadowing of approaching dissolution.
The great Republican party shrinks,
niter that blow, from the proportions of
a formidable giant to those of a sickly
dwarf. Tts race is run; its mission is
fullilled, and, in the shadow of its dis?
comfiture on Tuesday last, wc seo it lag
superfluous on tho political stage. Born
of unnatural events, heaved to promi?
nence by national convulsion, with tho
passing away of the circumstances that
created it, it passes away itself. Bril?
liant aud ovon grand its career has been;
but it possessed noue of tho elements of
permanency, and its ephemeral existence
now draws to a closo.
We doubt if there is vitality enough
in its organization to keep it together
until tho next Presidential campaign. It
is more than probable that its lenders
will quietly turn it into the gravo that
yawns to receive it, and will seek new
issues and build a new party with which
to enter tho Presidential struggle. Tho
symptoms of its decay, as exhibited iu
lust week's election, are too palpable to
bo ignored by even its most sanguino
partisans. If there had been any light
in tho organization it would certainly
have been brought ont in ii contest so
important as that which involved tho se?
lections of the judiciary of this great
State. But there was not breath enough
to fan even n fitful llamo of enthusiasm;
the heart that had throbbed so fiercely
in tho day of its pride and strength
seemed nerveless, aud the sun weutdowu
upon the decisive battle that seals thu
fate of Republicanism, not in this State
alone, but throughout the Republic.
What an unanswerable attestation of
tho innato strength, tho vitality, tho re?
cuperative power of Democracy! It has
passed alike the ordeal of triumph and
defeat, handing down from generation
to generation its unalterable principles,
and from the cloud of disaster emerging
as strong, as healthful, as hopeful as if
tho flow of its sun-shine had been un?
broken. Other political parties have
been boru, have flourished aud have
died; new doctrines have been preached
and abandoned; but through all, in calm
and tempest, with tho wind and against
the wind, the Democratic ship has held
its course, steering to-day by tho same
light that guided the Democratic helms?
men a half century ngo. The Ropublic
can lnivo no better proof of tho virtue
and value of a political creed than this
stability, this unfaltering adherence
throughout all tho vicissitudes of parti?
san warfare. While other organizations,
strong in their day, when their work is
done, slink silently iuto the pa9t, the
Democratic party, yielding nothing to
Time, identifies itself with tho national
existence, and witnessing to-dny the
dying agonies of its latest and most for?
midable foe, feels its own life-blood as
vigorous as ever, feels no symptom of
weakness, weariness or decay.
