Saturday Morning. Jone 4,1870.
u<Che Political Campaign ot 1870."
Th? New York Times seems much
concerned about tho future of the ?.Re?
publican" party. It affirms that it is
"on the threshold of the grand oampaign
without preparation, without recog?
nized leaders, and without any settled
affirmative policy." Aa to the Democra?
tic party, it says:
"Recognizing the opportunity, how?
ever, the Democratic leaders are dili?
gently at work, preparing to take advan?
tage of it. ? In nil the Southern States,
the party is quietly being re-organized
? and disciplined; conventions are being
held, and the press is actively at work.
The same movement ia observable in
moat of the Northern States. In Con?
necticut, New York and Ohio, especially,
has the party been aotive; and it is safo
to anticipitate that as tho several eleo
tions'take place, the party will be roused,
to a desperate effort to retrieve their
fallen fortunes in every part of the coun?
Tho Times nt least does not seem to
think that the Democratic party is dead.
OOB GREAT NEED.-Tho Abbeville
Press and Banner says:
"What wo want at tho South is both
more labor and more monicd capital.
This is universally conceded. Labor is
inefficient, and money is wanting. That
blaok labor is unreliable, is what wo
might ezpeot, under the circumstances.
It arises as much from previous condi?
tion and outside influences, as anything
in race. It is about as good as the white
labor which comes among us. We want
the better class of white laborers, or
none at all, it matters little whether
they como from the North or from
Europe-small farmers-agricultural la?
borers-a thrifty population. The influ?
ence of snob a population will elevate
the character of the whole industrial
class, and will bring the black race to
the test of an activo competition, which
will either make or mar their future.
"Immigration affords the true, safe and
only solution of the difficulties, material,
social and political whioh environ us.
To foster it is the dictate of self-interest,
and of patriotism."
AN ABOUTION WAR.-Tho radical ora?
tors continue to assert that the late war
was waged to free the negroes. At the
Federal decoration ceremonies in Charles?
ton, Monday last, General Wm. Gurney,
referring to the Union soldiers, said they
"had died that right might triumph over
injustice, and that freedom might bo
Siren to those in bondage." This may
o in a stump speech, made avowedly for
the purpose of getting negro votes, but
it is hardly lawful to lie, standing unco?
vered before high Heaven and in the
solemn presence of the dead. History
falsifies the statement. Tho frequent
declarations of Mr. Lincoln, and tho rc- 1
peated resolutions of Congress during
the wor, that there was no desire to in?
terfere with slavery in the States, and
the declaration of Grant, when tho oppo?
site was intimated, that if it was an abo?
lition war, he would resign and go home,
all give the lie to the assortion that the
war was for.ght to free the negro. That
result was but an incident aud after?
thought, and the negro nover would
have beeu freed at all, but for tho belief
that ho would bo valuable as a radical
THE TRANSIT or VENUS.-A raro a uti
important event in the astronomical
world is to biko place in December, 1874
-the transit of Venus across the sun's
disc. The English astronomers, oven at
this early da}', aro making preparations
for tho observation of the transit, as it
will tnko much time to select remote sta?
tions, provide the necessary instruments,
and organize tho various parties. Tho
object of all expensivo and troublesome
labor is to ascertain the sun's distance
from the earth; aud the transit of Venus,
which does not occur once in a century,
furnishes tho best known opportunity of
finding out that distance. Tho establish?
ed supposition that the sun is 95,000,000
miles away from the earth, has been re?
calculated to bo 4,000,000 too much, and
the correotnoss of the latter theory will
be determined by the transit. Tho best
points for the observation of this cvout
will be in the Marquesas Islands, thc
mouth of the Amoor River, Bombay,
India, Melbourne, Australia, Turkey and
FREE SUFFRAGE.-Ono of the cardinal
principles of tho Republican party, ns
its presses everywhere allege, is free suf?
frage; and yet in that little Republican
State, Rhoclo Island, no citizen of fo?
reign birth cnn vote, unless ho has a
property qualification ; while every native
citizen, tho negro included, is allowed to
rocoivo that franchise. It was supposed
that the fiftoeuth amendment would alter
this state of affairs, and the foreign born
citizens petitioned Congress to compel
the Stato to amend its Constitution in
accordance with the requirements of tho
fifteenth amendment. But it so happens,
says a cotomporary, that tho conserva?
tives will carry Rhodo Island, if tho pro?
perty qualification is abolished, and so
the Judiciary Committee of the United
Statos Senate roplios to tho petition with
a report declaring that "there is nothing
in the provision of tho Constitution pf
Rhodo Island referred to in conflict with
tho Constitution of tho United States."
Comment is useless.

A. Fenian General** Statement.
General O'Neil, one of the Fenian of?
ficers who has been ar roa ted and im?
prisoned at Burlington, Vermont, gives
the following narrative:
General O'Neil remarked : This move?
ment on the Canadian frontier has long
boen contemplated, and I have carefully
oonsidered the subject for two years.
You remember the attack and battle at
Fort Erie, ia 18CG, in which the Fenians
were victors. I saw at that time that
Irish troops on Canadian soil would fight
with desperation and courage, and that
carefully organized and properly disci?
plined, they would prove valiant soldiors.
At that time we failed booauso our men
did not have arms and ammunition; that
was all they lacked ; so since that time I
have been busy collecting 20,000 stand
of arms and perfecting the organization
of tho brotherhood, to get the entire
order throughout the country to under?
stand that we mast have troops, means
for transportation, and quick, decisive
movements up to the invasion. All the
territory was carefully mapped out, and
every projected movement was so timed
that tho occupation of Canada was to be
simultaneous and general along the line.
I ox ?J ec ted on Tuesday last to have 1,000
men ot Franklin; by Wednesday noon
over 1,000 more were to report there.
Every precaution had been taken to im?
pose seoresy, and though tho country is
flooded with a sea of British spies, not
one detail of the plans was divulged.
Thus both Governments were blinded.
It waB as much our object to ovado the
United States authorities as it was to
battle with the Canadians. Tho asser?
tion of General Sherman that we in?
tended to compromise this country with
England is thereforo untrue. Wo had
no such object, most of us having fought
in the United States armies. Our end
was simply to liberale Ireland, through
Canada as a base of operations. I was
to begin tho assault on Canadiau terri?
tory with tho 1,600 troops. Even if 800
arrived, I foresaw that they would be
ample to take a position, and this was all
we wanted at tho outset, as many of tho
promised troops were veterans. I knew
that they would make a good beginning.
This, you see, was all we wanted. Once
established, a permanent foothold in
British America, and entrenched in a
strong position, and 100,000 Fenians will
rush to the front. It was my duty to
form tho nucleus, and the service was
very critical, and the slightest mismove
would prove disastrous. This I foresaw,
and planned accordingly. To begin a
military enterprise of this kind, ono
thing should be kept in mind-tho in?
fluence of tho results upon thc public
sentiment. A brilliant beginning pro?
mised us much from tho American peo?
ple, who have generally been very friend?
ly to the movement. I then decided to
move on Franklin with 1.G00 men, this
poiut to be tho main objective one. Mi?
nor and supplementary movements were
to be made ut Malone, and they were
simply decoys. The Red River detach?
ment was included in tho campaign, un?
der my direction. Well, on Tuesday last
tho Fenian Brotherhood began to send
men forward, and the country was soon
aroused. Instead of the 1,000 men I ex?
pected nt Franklin, from Boston, 1-10
carno; and instead of the GOO from North?
ern New York and Vermont, only sixty
five reported for duty. In time tho local
authorities offer various explanations and
excuses for being dilatory. They say
that they could not transport the men.
Tho troops did not como as they should.
Instead of 3,003 on Wednesday, I had
300. With these men (emphatically) I
had to move forward, for tho United
States authorities were at my heels, and
Marshal Foster was in my camp watch?
ing mo closely. I planned an immediate
advance. Tho marshal came into camp,
but he dare not undertake to thwart me.
Surrounded by my soldiors, I would not
have submitted to an arrest. I regretted
very much tho necessity of having to
act with such au insignificant forco, but
I could not help it. Tho men wero not
at hand, and before mo was a hostile
country with hostile troops, and behind
me tho United States authorities, each
waiting to overthrow us, and hero you

Wo have had the opportunity during

their race has still somo claim to tho
rights and immunities and burdens of
American citizenship. After the taste
they havo had at "tho imminent deadly
breach, " they are well satisfied, we opiuo,
to shun as well "the holiday parade," ns
"the fierce tug of war." If everybody
elso is satisfied, they have no right to

MOVEMENTS BT STEAM OF FEETQHTS TO
Nsw YORK, MAT, 1870-THE PASSENGER
BUSINESS.-Of tho leading articles of ex?
port to New York daring th? past month,
we make the following summary : Bice,
1,477 tierces; upland cotton, 10,142
bales; sea island cotton, 416 bales; rosin,
3,138 barrels; truck, 5,896 packages;
clay, 172 tierces. Of these several
amounts, the new line of iron steamships
("Tennessee" and "South Carolina")
transported 809 tierces rice, 6,536 bales
upland cotton, 255 bags sea island cot?
ton, 2,624 barrels rosin, 3,724 packages
farm truck, and 172 casks clay. To
give aomo idea of the bulk of this por
tion of the cargoes of these two great
freight steamships, we state the quanti?
ties in tons: Say 275 tons rice, 1,300
tons upland cotton, 35 tons sea island
cotton, 450 tons rosin, 150 tons farm
truck, exclusive of sundries. This is a
very conspicuous freight success for
Muy, for a now enterprise; and not less
so in the number of passengers trans?

furnishes what is alleged to be tho text
of tho infallibility scheme now reported
to be occupying tho attention of the
Vatican Council in Borne. The paper is

and error-let him be anathema.

A cabio despatch asserts that tho dis?
cussion upon the infallibility dogma is
now being carried on with considerable
warmth, and the argument, it is thought,
will not bo terminated before tho latter
part of July. Tho following purports
to be a sketch of tho debate on Mon?
"Tho opposition first obtained the
floor, and the Bishops of St. Bricnco
and St. Gall spoko against infallibility.
Bishop Cefelc, of Boethenburg, made
an eucrgotic appeal, declaring that three
successive QScumenical Councils had
anathematized Pope Honorina, denounc?
ing him ns n heretic. Prince Cardinal
Schwartzenburg referred in language of
contempt to the exouses of partisans of
the dogma in their endeavors to explain
away the truth and justico of tho argu?
ments against Pope Honorius' affirma?
tion that infallibility was most inoppor?
tune, because such arguments were false
and ill-founded. Ho quoted from the
works of eminent theologians, adducing
authority to provo that Popes could be
deposed for heresy. Cardinal von
Bauscher, through n deputy, entered n
strong protest in behalf of society and
the interests of tho civil government
against any proceedings prejudicial to
tho cause of freedom of thought and
action. Tho tenor of the document was
blended with expressions of devotion to
tho Holy Seo."

THE CENSUS.-The taking of tho de?
cennial ceDBoa commenced on the let in?
stant, throughout tho United States, its
Territories and dependenoics. It is
something that does not often trouble us,
and is a work of essential importance in a
political and economical view. It is,
therefore, the duty of tho press to exhort
all pera o DB, of every class, to give tho
officers of the Government a willing aud
cheerful co-operation. In this enlighten?
ed day, thero should bono holding back,
and probably will be none among tho
whites. But tho census of the odored
population, in our opinion, is destined
to be tho most imperfect aud unreliable
in our history, and for sovoral reasons:
The first is, that the negroes have to
give it in themselves, and for tho first
time. Many of them do not, and cannot
be made to understand it, and wheu
reached, will give iucorroct or evasive
answers. And, again, many of them are
not possessed of the information requir?
ed, and which was horetoforo a matter of
record with their masters. Wo assure
them that no harm is intended to any
one by tho census-takers, aud hope they
will promptly toll all they kuow. An?
other reason is to bo found in tho diffi?
culty of reaching that class of tho popu?
lation, scattered as they aro, and many
of thom liviug promiscuously, without
nuy fixed habitation. This is tho chief
trouble, and we shall not bo surprised if
tho tables should sum up from ten to
twenty per cent, less than the actual
CRUMBS.-lu South Carolina thero are
five daily newspapers, four tri-wcekly
newspapers, one semi-weekly newspaper,
forty-two weekly newspapers, two month?

hears it, feels bathed in tho exhilarating

into poetry; it flings ahowers of sunshine
over tho durksome wood in which we are
traveling; it touches with light even our
sleep, which is no more tho image of
death, but is consumed with dreams that
uro the shadows of immortality.
To all of which wo give a sincore and
hearty amen. But then it must be un?
derstood to mean a laugh with something
to laugh nt. A practico has obtained

laugh nt every thiug-tho writer does not
mean that, nor do we. An eternal giggle
is both senseless and ridiculous. Tho
practico among too many men of sup?
posing that women can bo entertained
alone by that which makes them laugh,
is equally reprehensible. Among sensi?
ble peoplo of both sexes, there is a time
for everything-a time to be grave ns
well as a time to be merry.

OPINION OF THE PIIESS.-Wo take pleasure in
calling tho attention of our readers to a very
remarkable medicino, a notice of which ap?
pears in tho Observer thia morning-Hoinit eli's
"QUEEN'S DELIGHT." There must bo some?
thing in it, for wo hear it spoken of as a pre?
paration of much merit, and ono propared by
Dr. Iloinitsh himself, of distinguished phar?
maceutical reputation. Thu euphonious sou?
briquet, "QUEEN'B DEMO UT," baa in itself au
attraction which should commend it to onr
lady friends in need of so cxcolleut a medi?
cine, and wo suppose all would be benefited
by its use. For sale by FisiiEa A HEINITSII,
EXPERIENCE OK A YOUNO WOMAN.-A country
girl, young, pretty and happy; her step was
elastic and tho roses of health bloomed upou
her cheek. Ono April morn sho waa overtaken
by a "spring shower," and "caught a cold."
It was lier "particular time," and suppression
was tho result. At tho next "period" nature
refused to act. She hecamo sallow, swollen,
and sufi, red intensely with pains in tho back
and "lower stomach," palpitations, difficulty
of breathing, indigestion aud headache. Doc?
tors failed to palliate her distressed condition,
and ?ho longed for death as tho only hopo of
relief. At tho instanco of a friend,"who had
herself experienced its benefits, Bho was in?
duced to try Dr. J. Dradtield'a Female Regu?
lator. Ono Lottie cured her. Sho is again
tho happy girl she was that April morning be?
fore the shower. Tho Female Regulator is
prepared by L. II. Bradfield, Druggist, At?
lanta, Ga., at 31.50 per bottle, and kept hy all
respectable drug men throughout tho laud.
