In the July number of the XIX Cen
i?tyi Col. lanac W. Hayno publishes an
article headed "Audi AUeram Parlent,"
wherein he protests against Gov. Perry's
reminiscences of publio men, and more
particularly of General Eobert Y. Hayne
- that eminent son and champion of
South Carolina in the past, and a friend
and, kinsman of the reviewer. After
making his point, to wit: that ez-Gov.
Perry did not sufficiently magnify Gen.
Hayne, Col. Hoyne CIOSOB his article thus:
"In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I would
not have it understood, as an inference
from the tenacity with which I adhere
to a jost appreciation of the memories
of j the illustrionsdead, that I. am of the
Bourbon sohool, 'forgetting nothing, and
learning nothing.' On the contrary, I
believe, that there are many things which
it is wise to 'forget,' but these cherished
memories are not of them.. And I am
certain that much that ia -valuable hos
been 'learned' in tho last five years, and
that very much morq, appertaining to
our now condition, remains to be learned.
"I moat deoline, however,, undertak?
ing ta teach in tho new ,sohopl.. My
earnest, and, God knows, honest,, thongh
humble efforts, for thirty years, to bring
about the assertion of tba right of self
government in the South, havo proved
sp disastrous that I shrink from any new
experiment. I may add, that my pro?
fession, with me always a necessity, is
now doubly so, and affords full occupa?
tion. But beyond and above these rea?
sons, it is my deliberate jndgmeut that
in the present unprecedented condition
of things-the upheaval and subversion
of all that was-the. obliteration of past
institutions, past-manners and modes of
thought-it ia better that old men should
Btand asido, and leave it to younger men
to solve the novel and difficult problems
as they arise. The instincts of the young
are fresher and truer, and -there is a
greater adaptability to what is new,
which in a crisis liko this, renders them
wiser in their generation than an honest
old man can bo. I believe the young to
be safer counsellors, and certainly they
are more efficient in action.
. "In politics, I am as dead as if already
consigned to the tomb of the Capnlets.
But if I do not help, God forbid that I
Our object in quoting Col. Hayne's
remarks in this connection is to refer to
one important element of "the new
school." First, however we may say
that we sympathize with the writer in
the suggestion, that there are memories
oonneoted with our past, and many and
precious too they are, which we should
not willingly let die; it becomes every
people to examine their past. What
was wrong or injurious, condemn it;
what was right and wiso and valuable,
bearii over in mind. That is, it becomes
us to treasure all that was good in the
past, and to guard against all that was
But to return, what is the important
element of "tho new school," to which
we have referred? In our judgment, it
is that the fortunes of the State arc to
bo made by industrial development,
rather than by exhibitions of mere men?
tal power, or by setting forth of political
theories. Look at the past of South
Carolina. It is illustrated by the mas?
terly expositions of political creeds on
the part of many eminent Carolinians.
Behold the long array of Carolinians
eminent in AHMS and LETTERS-in LOQIC,
in BHETOBic, in ORATORY. This reflected
honor upon the commonwealth. But it
gave no material power. Whilst Sonth
Carolina aud the South spoke and wrote,
the North worked and made wealth.
In addition to this, the Government
s^nt its emoluments North. The South
got the honors, the North the money.
The one grow poor and the other rich,
and thus it came about, that when war
ensued, STATE BIGHTS was lost, because
of our poverty, and CONSOLIDATION pre?
vailed, because of wealth. This, then,
is the point. Our duty in South Caro?
lina and in tho South is tc magnify
WORK. Brain-sweat alono will not suf?
fice. The mind, the soul, is all impor?
tant, but the commonwealth needs also
the strong, muscular body. In the past
South Carolina had mind-had soul
but she needed body and muscle.
This, then, is tho great lesson that "the
new school" treats. It magnifies the
religious, the moral, tho menial, but it
also magnifies the material. The glory
of tho moral is ono, and the glory of the
physioal is another. It is the conjoined
glory that make a prosp?rons State. It
is wealth that develops LETTERS. It is
wealth that gives TOWER. It is wealth
that gives contenlment, and genuine pros?
perity may bo its fruit.
Let us, therefore, in South Carolina,
put ourselves in acoord with tho activity
of the age. Let us develop our great
resouroes, and seek that genuine INDE?
PENDENCE whioh springs from real, sub?
stantial offorts, from capital and num?
bers introduced, from au industry diver'
nilled; from labor, efficient and skillful;
from a fruitful soil and a "canning
hand." "Let us work whilst it is day."

all in the employ of Mr. Minick. Mack
and Popo horrowod a plow line, coolly
seized Means, tied him, took him from

j Tho W?Tih?i?gton correspondent of tho

T?o ratk?hls have decided to force
through CoHrpess the Conkling naturali?
zation bill, which was debated ux the Se?
nate yesterday, and set for a vote on
Saturday next. When it comes over to
the House, tho previous question is to be
moved on it. But the Democrats aro
forewarned. In tho discussion yester?
day, the, radicals.threatened oivil war if
a Democrat is elected President. "Sir,
I say here," said Mr. Senator Drake,
"that wheuever tho time comes that this
nation shall HCO clearly that tho voices of
its legal voters has been overthrown by
this vote in tho city of New York, thon
a large portion of tho nation will rise as
one man nnd declare that tho wan elected

And the World adds, editorially:
On Saturday, tho infamous bill de?
signed to obstruct naturalization and ob?
struct the use of naturalization pnpers
by citizens holding them, was brought
up by Senator Goukling, who has it in
charge. He attempted to put it on its
passago, and as he hoped to bring it to
an immediate voto, ho said ho would not
make a speech. After remarks by the
Badioal Senator Drake, who confessed
that it was aimed at the Democratic par?
ty in New York, the bill was vigorously
assailed by Senators Saulsbury, Vickers
and Bayard, and went over until next
Saturday, whoa it will bo finally disposed
Some of tho old Know-Nothing load?
ers-among them Chauncy Schoffer, a
noted old-time Know-Nothing orator and
agitator-are in Washington, lobbying
for tho passago of tho bill.
The revival and adoption of tho de?
funct Know-Nothing issue by the Repub?
licans, is a noteworthy sign of the times.
It betokens a consciousness that the ne?
gro agitation lins spent its force. That
Dagon of tho Philistines has fallen in
tho templo of its worshippers, and they
aro constrained to call on somo other
god for help. They have succeeded in
introducing seven hundred thousand
black voters into tho body politic; but
those black voters aro concentrated in a
minority of tho States, and are inter?
mingled with an intelligent white popu?
lation, always remarkable for political
activity nud> skill, who aro likely to gain
over tho negro mind tho ascendancy
which knowledge exerts over ignorance,
property over indigonce, employer ovor
employed, neighbors over neighbors, and
social standing over an inferior casto.
Tho Republicans can no longer put their
political trust in the negro; andas some?
thing must bo dono to retrieve tho fall?
ing fortunes of their party, they can hit
upon nothing better than a resuscitation
of the old hostility to tho rights of nat?
uralized citizens. As the great Stato of
New York seems moro hoplessly lost to
tho Republicans than any other Stute in
thu Uuion, tho naturalization bill is
moro immediately directed against tho
Democracy of this State. Mr. Davis,
ono of our Republican Representatives,
is its author, and Mr. Coukling, ono of
our Republican Senators, takes charge
of it in tho Senate.
The Know-Nothing naturalization bill
is also a bluuder on thu part of tho Re?
publicans who are pressing it, in another
respect, lt will consolidate tho whole
naturalized vote in favor of tho Demo?
cratic party. The war has shaken the
control of tho party over tho foreign
voters, and nothing could be better cal?
culated to recover it than tho adoption
of the old Know-Nothing issuo by the
Republicans. The whole body of foreign
born citizens will stand by tho Demo?
cratic party, and give us their zealous
support in defending thoir rights and
frustrating Federal oppression by coun?
teracting Stato enactments. Whether
the new naturalization bill passes or fails,
it equally disoloses tho hostile animus of
the Republican party towards our adopt?
ed citizens. They are reasonably jealous
of their rights, aud will need no persua?
sion to throw their influence on tho side
of thoir tried and steadfast friends.
TUE MATUEWES MURDER.-Pettr
Holmes, who, more than two years ago,

In his charge to tho jury on that occa?

Oar community was startled yesterday
morning, by tho information , that (he
new steamship Tennessee, of tho Glyde
Steamers, plying betweon Gburleatou
and New "Xork, had boon destroyed -by
fire, on tho beach, some thirty tniles be?
low Capo Fear. The Tonueseeo left
Charleston for New York, at about 6
o'clock Tuesday eveniug lust, with 773
bales cotton, 490 barrels rosin, 550 boxes
vegetables, 377 barrels potatoes, aud
some other minor articles, and some fif?
ty-three passengers, eighteen of whom
were ladies. About 1 o'clock ou Wednes?
day morning, smoke was discovered issu?
ing from the forward hold, where a quan?
tity of pressod cotton was stowed. The
steamer was, at this tiuje, about forty
miles Fast-North-east of Capo Romain,
aud between twenty-five and thirty miles
from tho shore. As soon as the discovery
was mndo, the steam pumps were set to
work and in a few minutes a hand pump
WHS put iu motion, also, and six streams
of water and steam jets from tho boiler
wero turned into tho hold where the
burning cotton was situated. Rut within
twenty minutes, tho fire had gained so
much head-way that tho flames burst
through the lower hatch and tho vessel
was in imminent dnuger of destruction.
Ineffectual efforts were made to put down
the hatches, and, in tho exigency, the
sails were unbent from tho spars, and
after being wet, were put over the open
hatch below, and tho upper hatch-way
was put down. With the hold shut off
from tho air and six streams of water aud
a oonstaut volume of steam thrown into
it, the prospect seemed good for obtain?
ing a mastery of tho flames. Tho few
passengers in the forward stuto-rooms
were awakened by tho uoiso created.
Those prudently kept quiet until tho
flames burst through the lower hatch.
Then tho remainder were quietly awaken?
ed, aud after furnishing themselves with
life-preservers, patiently, though with
some alarm, awaited tho result. In the
meantime, the six boats of the steamer
were cleared and everything was put in
readiness for tho passengers and crew to
leave tho vessel, if it should become ne?
cessary. For some time, tho hot steam
passed from tho lower hold through tho
water-tight bulkhead into tho boiler and
ongine-rooms, and though the engineers
wero nearly suffocated, they remained at
their posts and kept the engines in mo?
tion. Au hour subsequently, when the
flames had boon somewhat checked, they
could atteud to their duties with less dis?
When the fire was discovered, tho
course of tho steamer was changed to
North-north-west, and nt about G o'clock
in tho morning she neared tho shore und
thence steamed up the coast at a distance
of a third of a milo. But her speed was
materially slackened by reason of tho
largo amount of steam which was used
to keep tho fire in check. A large volume
of water had been poured into the hold,
oansiug thc bow to lower some two feet
in tho sea. As day dawned many of the
gentlemen passengers volunteered their
assistance in working tho hand-pumps,
and rendered valuable service. From
outward appearances, about 9 o'clock a.
m., tho fire was again getting the ascen?
dancy. The hot steam was once more
doming through into tho boiler and en?
gine rooms, muking it difficult for the
engineers to breathe, aud nearly blind?
ing them with tho intense heat. Later,
fears wero entertained that tho Hames
had got between decks, and with these
indications it was deemed important to
put tho passengers ashore, where their
lives, at hast were safe. At ll o'clock,
when tho steamer had arrived a short
distance abovo Little River, and thirty
miles South of Capo Fear, sho was run
head ou to the beach, and at once scut?
tled, as tho only hope of saving lier.
She grounded in ten feet of water, with
the tide very near tho closo of tho ebb.
Four boats were then manned and thc
passengers wero taken to tho beach,
where, subsequently a tent was impro?
vised from a sail to afford shelter from
the heot aud rain.
At 12 o'clock m., Mr. Underbill and
tho pilot of the steamer, Mr. Davenport,
left in a small boat to look for assistance.
They came up the shore, a distance of
thirty-two miles, to Smithville, which
place they reached at 8 p. m. They there
found the revenue cutter W H. Seward,
and Capt. Usher, hearing of the particu?
lars, promptly got up steam and, nt 12
o'clock at night, started for tho burn?
ing steamer, which they reached at day?
light yesterday morning. They found
nothing left of her but tho hull, from
tho smouldering wood-work of which
proceeded an immense, volume of smoke.
Tho passengers wero all on the shoro and
as comfortable ns circumstances would
permit, after having passed the night on
a barron sand beach. From them Mr.
Underbill learned that after tho pilot and
himself had left for assistance, at 7 in
tho ovouing, tho smoke began to issue
through the upper deck, aud tho vessel
was abandoned. Capt. Chichester and
his crow having worked nobly until then
in tho endeavor to secure canvass and
spars for touts, and bedding and pro?
visions. It was impossible to savo the
baggage of tho passengers, which, with
some slight exceptions, was all destroyed.
At 9 o'clock tho flames burst from the
forward uppor dock, and at ll thoontiro
length of tho vessel was a mass of lurid
flames, presenting n'.spectacle of awful
By 8 o'clock yostorday morning the
passengers and tho crew, with tho excep?
tion of Captain Chichcstor, tho chief en?
gineer and tho steward, had all been
safely transferred to tho Soward, through
a heavy surf, when the cutter steamed
off and brought them all safely to this
city yesterday afternoon. The officers
spoken of abovo remained on tho beach,
and will bo brought hero to-day ou a
steam-tug which left yesterday morning
for the wreck.
The origin of the fire is as yet unknown,
the first indications of it having beon
discovered about mid-night of Tuesday,
when about seventy-five miles out from
Charleston. The steamer was a fine new
boat, having boen built about one year
ugo. She was a side wheel steamer, and
was intended for the United States Navy,
but was afterwards sold to the proprie?
tors of the Clyde lino. The passengers
aro all unanimous in their expressions
towards Capt. Chichester, averring that
mortui mau could not havo done more,
under tho circumstances, thuu did he.
And ho was ably seconded by all of his
officers and crew.
Tho crew aro now io this city and will
bo properly Oirod for. Very nearly all
of tho passengers left last night, all of
these, with some two or three oxooptions,
continuing overland to New York. The
others will return to Charleston. We
know of no instance of actual destitution
among either passengers or orew, but,
should such bo tho cuso, Mayor Martin
has authorized us to say that an applica?
tion for relief will bo promptly responded
to by him on behnlf of tho city.

TEHRinLE KEROSENE ACCIDENT.-One
of the most terrible kerosene oalamities
we ever heard of, is mentioned in the
Cincinnati papers of Saturday. The
people in ono of thc principal streets

woman) rushing about among them. She
was a perfect mass of firo from head to
foot, the long spires of flame raised seve?
ral feet abovo her head, aud flaring out
from her body in every direction. Tho
crowd attempted, with their hats and
bands, ns well as they wore able, to ex?
tinguish the flames, which wore burning
fiercely. A blanket was at last brought
and thrown around her, smothering the
Are, but not until every shred of ber
clothing was burned to ashes, and the
hoops of her skirt heated to a red heat,
deeply imbedded in her quivering flesh.
