Friday Morning, Jane IO, 1870.
Oar Relations to tuc Reform Party-A
Xtlberal and Progressive Democracy.
In the debates which we have read in
connection with the present reform move?
ment, expressions have been usod which
render proper this declaration on our
part. As a DEMOCRATIC JOURNAL, we
gave onr assent to the propositions of
the Press Conference. We have reed?
ed it ~iso Tor the Democratic party to
abandon the contest os to the political
status ol the colored citizen of the United
States. In this, it seems, we did but
anticipate the action of the Ohio Demo
crecy, whioh bas wisely waived this issue
with their opponents and moved to bet?
ter and fresher fl ol da of encounter. So,
too, as a DEMOCRATIC JOURNAL, we advo?
cate tbe movement for reform. As we
interpret tbe movement in its integrity,
it is a combined effort of all mou, op?
posed to the present corrupt regime, for
a better administration of our public
affairs. It seeks tbe union of Democra?
tic reformists and Republican reformists
for tho relief of South Carolina in ber
extremity. In becoming, in good faith,
an advocate for reform, we at least do
not sink our valued association with that
national organization, which, under the
hame of Democracy, bolds to those great
principies of government which receive
tbe assent of our judgment.
We are for reform and for political co?
operation with all ready to embark under
its banner, but ns before, so now, we
stand in general political faith upon the
firm ground ot a liberal and progressive
The special politics of this journal aro
for reform in South Carolina, nnd we
invite the co-operation of all mon dis?
posed to seek the same end. Tho gene?
ral politics of this journal are for a PRO?
GRESSIVE DEMOCRACY, and INDUSTRIAL
PROGRESS. In our special and general
politics, we aro for the acknowledgment
of the rights now secured to colored men
by law-as the best solution of a vexed
? ?> ? i
DIPLOMATIC RUMOR.-Strange rumors
are circulating among the diplomatic cir?
cles of Europe. One of them is, that
the King of Prussia aims at being crowned
Emperor of North Germany; and another
that Louis Napoleon, fretting under tho
unstable tenure of his office, and anxious
to create a diversion, meditates a move
on Belgium or on the Bhine, for the pur?
pose of checking Prussian ambition. It
is likely that the tranquility of Europe
will not be disturbed for some timo to
come; but while the present incumbeut
remains on the French throne, and is
haunted by his evil conscience aud goad?
ed on by his fears, there is no moral
guarantees for the preservation of peace.
The alliance botween Bussia and Egypt
is no secret to attentive observers of
Eastern affairs. The Khedive would
never have displayed so much pluck if
he had not been backed up by Russia,
and if he had not also somo reason to
count upon the support of France. Bus?
sia is not likely to recede from her tradi?
tional policy, and the Egyptian conflict
affords a fine opportunity, whioh the
Emperor Alexander seems inclined to
improve. Great Britain, with ber com?
plications with the United States aud in
Ireland, and with the Bussian rivalry for
Asiatic supremacy, is, for the present, in
a most perplexing condition, which is
exceedingly encouraging to the Russian,
French and Egyptian enterprises.
THE IBISII LAND BILL.--The Irish
land bill has passed the Commons, and
will probably pass tho Lords. It will
afford great relief to tho poor tenantry of
that unhappy island. It saves them
from exorbitant rents, which the land?
lords have been accustomed to impose
whenever it seemed possible for tho
tenants to pay them and not to starve to
death. It also saves them against tho
power of tho landlords of annulling
leases without a year's notice. It is, so
far as it goes, a land reform for Ireland.
It is but tho commencement of land re?
form ou a moro extended scale.
THE FENIANS.-Secretary Fish has re?
ceived a congratulatory note from Mr.
Thornton, the British Miuistor, in refer?
ence to the strict maintenance of neu?
trality by this Government. Attorney- !
General Hoar says tho rigor of tho law
will be meted out to O'Neil and the other
captured Fenian leaders, but tho admi?
nistration is disposed to be lenient to?
wards the privates, who are considered
Before tho close of tho present year
Milwaukee will bo tho eastern terminus
of ovor two thousand milos of railway.
A few years ago Milwaukee stood on tho
western verge of civilization.
A violont enrthqaako has visited tho
State of Oaxacas, in Mexico, killing 103
people and wounding many others. The
earthquakes extended to tho mines,
where people were also killed.
DELEGATES APPOINTED FROM EDQB
?IELD,-At the public meeting held in
Edgefield to nominate delegates to the
Jane Convention, 8 colored and 7 white
delegates were appointed. The A tiver
User saya :
The speeches made by Gen. Butler,
Maj. Gary, Maj. Bacon and Mr. You
man8, on this occasion, were, ono and
all, able, honest, and truthful, and all in
the same strain and to the same end,
viz. thnt of opening the eyes of the ne?
groes to their true interests, to thc sel?
fishness, knavery and dissimulation of
the great mass of tho radical party of
the State, and to the honesty and good
intentions of tho reform party. Gon.
Gary, who has taken no part in politics
siuco the war, appeared only after re?
peated calls from the meeting. He de?
clared himself an uncompromising old
school Democrat, totally opposed to ac?
quiescing, only so far as we are absolute?
ly obliged, in either the 13th, 14th, or
15th amendments, totally opposed to ne?
gro suffrage, and willing to wait and suf?
fer until dooms-day, rather than swerve
from the pure dootrinea of the Demo?
Mr. P. A. Eichelberger, the leading
radical of this seotion, was present at
the mooting-or rather banging upou its
outskirts-and was called upon loudly
for bis views, with many assurances pre?
viously given, that respect, toleration,
and fair-play, should be tho order of the
day. Mr. Eichelberger, however, did
not respond. He aud certain of his
agenta and myrmidoms wero working
liko beavers in the after part of tho day,
to undo tho work of tb > morning's
Aud now Edgefield, having pu! .icrself
among the ranks of those moving for a
reform in the Government, can only
hope that tho wise action of the Conven?
tion will bo productive of such Reform.
In anticipation of a war, tho European
Governments are buying up all tho bread
stuffs in tho Now York market. A cor?
respondent of the New York Courier
Journal says :
War iu tho East of Europe is among
the immediate probabilities of tho Sum?
mer. Bnssia is again regarded as nu ag?
gressor by tho Western Bowers, and it is
believed that Prussia this tirao will join
France in preventing tho Czar from deal?
ing a death-blow to Turkey. It is evi?
dent that the Egyptian Viceroy's prepar?
ations for war ngainst Turkey aro openly
encouraged and aided by Russia, and the
Crimean war may have to bo fought over
again to keep the Czar out of Constanti?
Henry Baync, the negro shot in tho
Macon guard house, ou Sunday night,
while attempting to escape, had just been
arrested on Saturday, charged with gen?
eral larceny. Alargo amount of stolen
goods were recovered, among them a lino
horse, bridle and saddle, and a gold
watch worth 8200. At tho timo of his
arrest, ho was running a plantation at
station No. 1, on the South-westeru Bail
road, and had several bands employed,
whose wages he paid out of his stealings.
Just before be died, ho proposed to tell,
if raised up, where he bad a valise con?
cealed containing 8500. When raised
up, his speech failed him, and he ex?
pired almost immediately.
DESTRUCTIVE HAIL STORM.-Wo regret
to learn that, on the 3d iustaut, a de?
structivo hail storm xisited that portion
of Bickens County, North of tho Court
House. Tho crops on the plantations of
James E., John, and Mrs. Hagood, and
James Griffin were destroyed. Others
in tho neighborhood also suffered se?
verely. On the places above named, out?
houses, fences, fruit trees, Are., were
blown down. Where wheat, cotton, rye,
Arc, weregrowing, corn hasbceu planted.
Hail stones fell as large as ben eggs, and
to the depth of eighteen inches. On tho
Otb, there was plenty of hail in tho rifts
and washes.-Keowee Courier.
AN EMBRYO SCHEME,-Weare told that
a company has been formed at Washing?
ton, to establish a settlement on tho
Northern coast of Mexico, aud its agent
has been nominated Cousul at Magdalen.
They hope that tho Mexican Commis?
sion will recommend the annexation of
Northern Mexico and Sonora to the
Uuitcd States in payment of tho claims
due to American citizens. Caleb Gush?
ing, Gen. Butler and other wide-awake
lawyers aro said to have their eyes, if
not their bauds, ou this scheme.
THE AIR-LINE BAILROAD.-The Char
lotto papers announce that Mr. P. P.
Dickinson, of New York, has taken tho
entiro contract for the construction of
thc [Air-Lino Bailroad from Atlanta to
Charlotte, and proposes to let sub-cou
tracts for sections to parties along tho
lino of the road. He advertises for pro?
posals for tho grading, masonry and
bridging of sixty miles of the road ex?
tending from Charlotte to Spnrtanburg,
on which work will bc commenced im?
Dr. Mary Walker lectured at Brenham,
Texas, to a select audience, and took oc?
casion to say that before long tho whito

velopment thero, immediately, some of

infallibility shall be proclaimed on the
26th day of tho present month, in honor

preparation? are being made to celebrate
the occasion, and it is said the display of
pomp and pageantry will surpass any de?

Advices from Hiys City, Kansas, con?
tain the announcement of an attack
by Indians on a mail station, on Bear
Creek, between Camp Supply and Hays
City, in which two soldiers wore killed

low the station, a Mexican servant had
beeu killed and sixty mules run off. A
female interpreter reported at Camp
Supply a large number of Arapahoes and
Cheyennos on the war-path.
HURRYING ur THE MATTER.-About
the fastest time ou record, wo think, in
tho matrimonial line, was made at Sum?
merville, on Sunday last. A gentleman

the first time, was introduced to her, be?
came smitten, proposed, was accepted,
and the couple wore married at 4 p. m.

lifo. Tho horse was also drowned and
the wagon lost. Bussell cried ,for help,
but sunk before it could be extended to
him. Ho leaves a wifo and two children.
SUDDEN DEATH.-On Friday morning
last a colored man, by tbe name of Ed?
mond Boyd, living and working on the
plantation of Mr. Carson Warren, died
very suddenly of apoplexy. He was a
good man nod a fuit hf ni worker, aud had
beon in perfect heaith up to tho moment
of his death.-Edge field Advertiser.
The editor of tho Hancock (Kentucky)
Messenger, in a farewell address in his
