H in rt ?ru Our Great Men 1
Tho general complaint, "Where aro
thc Websters, the Clays, tho Patriok
Henrys?" is auswered iu this way by a
contemporary: As men becomo moro
enlightened, as education becomes moro
universal, the talent of men becomes
more equalized. There is not the cbauco
now that there used to bo for ono man
to rise far above bis fellows, and thus
compel tho homage and obeisance of
thoso about him. There aro heroes as
great as ever there have becu. But there
are so ruuuy of them that individuals oro
forgotten, aud ideas are becoming su?
premo. This is a mark of true progress,
aud just as fast as the person is merged
iuto the project, so much nearer do we
come to complete culture aud refinement.
It is conceded as a fuct that tho ele?
ments of greatness-moral and intellect?
ual power-are the same in all genera?
tions. It is the calling of these qualities
into activity that creates greatness; but
it is a singular fact, not favorable to thc
theory, that our country, at a time when
it most needs great talents, great learn?
ing and great patriotism, should develop
hardly any of thoso qualities in its pub?
lic councils. Look at the present Cou
gres3 of the United States-where is the
mau in either house that commands the
admiration and homage of the country,
even of thc less enlightened portion of
it, by his brilliant genius, his enlarged
statesmanship-or his power to com?
mand the popular heart? It is evident
that, with all the ignorance in Congress
-aud at no other period iu our history
was there such a display of it-neither
party in either house has a leader.
Even the heads of factious are mcu
who have but little in them to commend
them to the popular affection, or even
respect. The Almighty, in Ilia wisdom,
sometimes sends an iron age upon a peo?
ple and commits their destinies to tho
counsels of ignorance, selfishness ami
malice; and this seems to be tho enso
with thc American people at the present
day. Thc country has beeu plunged,
head and heels, iuto tho very slough of
degradation, and perhaps the power that
put it there, or tolerated the wicked men
who brought about such a consumma?
tion, will, in tho process of reformation,
develop the Clays, Websters aud Patrick
Henrys, whoso loss we now so deeply
deplore. It is hard to philosophize on
the progress and retrogression of hu?
The Ruler of nil the earth seems to
havo His own purposes to fulfill with
men and nations, and these aro past
finding out. To-day, He leads them
through the valley of humiliation, and
to-morrow elevates them to the high?
lands of national pride and greatness.
It may be that the curso of stupidity and
viciousness that now rests upon us may
be only a tchool for tho inculcation of
high intellectual and moral qualities that
shall in timo reedeni the country and
j) lace it once moro on the high road to
greatness and renown.
How TUE COMBATANTS STAND.-Sup?
posing Italy, Holland and tho Scandiva
viun States remain neutral, we find tho
following military strength nt the dis?
posal of the belligerents:
North-German Confederation.. 803,000
Spain. . 150,000
BURNT TO DEATH.-A colored woman,
zanied Violet Washington, was burned
to death on Saturday, under the follow?
ing circumstances: Sbo was employed as
a cook by a family living in the upper
part of King street. On Saturday, after
dinner, she was attempting to light a
lire in thc kitchen-stove, when a can,
containing kerosene oil, by some moans
taught fire and exploded, setting her
clothing on fire. Every effort was made
to relievo the poor woman, but before
tho llamos in which hbo wm enveloped
were extinguished, ?he was fatally burnt.
After thc Hames were extinguished, she
was convoyed to tho City Hospital, und
received every attention, but "after lin?
gering until Sunday morning, died. The
Coroner held an inquest, yesterday, and
a verdict was rendered in accordance
with the facts already stated.

HOLLANDERS * AND PUBXTANS.-Gov.
Soymour, in his scholarly address at Cor?
nell University, said, in a pleasant tri?
buto to Now York and New England:
"Wo want clear views of tho lending
traits of the first colonists. Sometimes
wo hear painfully absurd speeches from
tho pulpit and the rostrum upon those
subjects. The Puritans suffer most iu
this way. There was something heroic
in their self-poised characters. They had
what will always oom maud respect-"earn?
estness. It was carried to excess, and
made them harsh. But au earnest mau
is always in some way a useful man. The
vigor of character, the appreciation of
education and religion derived from tho
Puritans, aro manifested in every quar?
ter of our land and private enterprises.
Our people required and possess the
characteristics derived from both of
these sources. He who would seek to
deprive tho Hollanders of the Puritans of
their just share of veneration, is un
worthy to be tho descendant of eithor.
The statesmen and the poets of Now
England strive to perpetuate the memory
of tho Pilgrim Fathers, to record their
Bufferings, and to hallow tho very spot
upou which they trod. Plymouth rock
has been made a sacred shrino where
they annually pour forth their gratitudo
for the civil aud political blessings which
they enjoy. But how little is known of
tho moro varied and moro interesting
emigration to tho shores of our own
State. While we honor the Pilgrim
Fathers, let us not forget the Hollanders,
who made early settlements upon our
shores, and who made the harbor of New
York a placo of refuge from bigotry, in?
tolerance and wrong."
ELECTORAL PLATFORM OF TUE NORTH?
ERN PROGRESSISTS.-The Berlin journals
of July 1 publish the electoral manifesto
of thc progressist party. As tho coming
elcotions will take place at the samo time
both for the North German Parliament
and the Prussian Chamber, thc pro?
gramme referred to is drawn up with n
double aim. Tho following are ita prin?
Accomplishment by pacific means of
German unity; enlargement and trans?
formation of tho Northern Confederation
into a federal German State; consequent?
ly tho development in a liberal direction
of the Federal constitution, particularly
by introducing into it thu fundamental
rights of thc German people; a respon?
sible federal ministry aud the payment
of deputies; reduction of tho military
charges by n diminution of the army in
time of peace nud a shortening of the
length of .service; to support all efforts
mude in Europe with a view to a general
disarmament; no increase of taxes, but
rather the contrary, beginning with n
suppression of thoso on food, which are
especially onerous to the poorer classes;
equal rights for all; universal suffrage in
tho separate States asia the Confedera?
For thc Prussian Chamber of Deputies
in particular tho progressists demand:
Eutiro right for it to vote thc taxes;
self-government in the commune, district
und province; responsibility of function?
aries to tho courts of law.
POLITICAL AND GOVERNMENTAL RE?
FORM.-The honor belongs to the great
State of Illinois of initiating the first and
most important movement for reform of
our Stato governments which has been
attempted since the late war. Ono of tho
moat deplorable of the consequences of
tho war has been the rapid decline in
morality, and in regard for the truo
principles of Republican freedom and
good government in our State and muni?
cipal systems, and iu the vast increase, of
corruption, venality, and selfish and par
Tho accession to power of the radical
party, with their profound contempt for
the old ideas of tho fathers of the Go?
vernment, with their tendencies to po?
litical usurpation, and to tho unscru?
pulous uso of politicul patronage for per?
sonal and party nggraneliscment, regard?
less of the old landmarks and limitations
of constitutional republicanism, and of
the fundamental provisions of Mugna
Charta and bills eif rights, has spread
corruption through all tho Slates, to nu
extent which is not paralleled in any
other country in thc civilized world, and
which has caused tho true and patriotic
of our citizons to despair of the future of
our Republic.-New Orleans Times.
MORE OF THE CITY PROPERTY LEVIED
UPON.-lu our advertising columns will
bc found au advertisement from Sheriff
Mackey, announcing that by virtue of
an execution in tho case of tho executors
of Gcorgo Gibbon vs. the City Council,
he will sell at the Court Houso corner,
on thc first day of next month, all the
right, title anti interest of the defendants
in thu following property of tho City
Council of Charleston, or ns much there?
of as may bo necessary to satisfy the exe?
cution: 6,800 shares, original stock, of
the North-eastern Railroad; 5,950 shares
of Memphis and Charleston (dividend)
stock; 2,000 shares, original stock, ot
Chcraw and Darlington Railroad; $3,391
50 certificates of indebtedness of the
North-eastern Railroad; $20,000 8 per
cent, bonds of thu North-eastern Rail?
road. The value of the properly, tims
levied, is far in excess of tho amount of
the execution. - Char liston News.
A NAVAL RATTLE-A FICHT OFF On:
COAST PROBABLE.-During our late little
unpleasantness, thecitizcus of Cherbourg
had a holiday sight in witnessing the
ocean duel between the Kearsiirgo and
tho Alabama. New Yorkers maj* proba?
bly have au opportunity of enjoying a
similar sensation now, for there are in
our waters tho North German frigate
Ancona, of 100 horse-power and twenty
eight guns, and tin; French frig.de Semi?
ramis and tho school-ship Jean Bart.
Half a dozen loagues would not bo too
long a sail for sensation-loving New

CALI* FOR A FOURTH CONGRESSIONAL
DISTRICT NOMINATING CONVENTIOI?.-W?
earnestly urge upon all those citizens of
every County of tho Fourth Congres?
sional District who are not in slavery to
tho Union League, to meet on tho first
Monday of August next, at their re?
spective Court Houses, and appoint dele?
gates to a convention to nominate a can?
didate for Congress, to be held on the
Thursday night following, in the oity of
Columbia, and not, as has been sug?
gested, at Greenville. Columbia, though
not iu thc Fourth Congressional Dis?
trict, is"accessible by railroad in one
day, and at bulf the expense, from every
County in it. If the couveutiou be held
in Columbia, therefore, it will perhaps
be moro largely attended, and will more
fairly represent the District. A full
attendance is greatly to be desired. Let
us hear, thou, from the Counties, whe?
ther they prefer Columbia or Greenville,

form party.- IVinnshorp Nuns.

THE CHINESE QUESTION.-Either all

either tho Declaration of Independence

3(10,000,000 of obscene yellow rascals, or
elso does not require it to admit the
three or four millions of malodorous
fetich-worshipping black follows. Wi

it will be wholly impossible to draw nuy
line of demarcation betweeu black, yel?
low and red. Wu invited Spotted Tail;
we oller him the right baud of fellow?

Cloud or Furn Hourn being President of
