COLUMBIA, S. C.
Sunday Morning:, July 31,1870. .
Organisation ?ud Activity Needed.
Tho platform adopted by the recout
radical convention, pronouncing the pre?
sent administration "economical, wise
and honest" and alluding to the "happy"
situation in which wo stand, is the best
argument for tho reform movement that
auy intelligent citizen could want. Hero
ia a body of mon containing such spirits
as Whittomore, Bowan, Mackey and other
larger and lesser radical liglits, who meet
in solemn oonolave and with not a word
about the patent corruption and fraud
that have been practised; with not a
word about the Land Commission swin?
dles; they laud the situation and illus?
trate a spirit of brazen effrontery. Tho
time hos oomo for prompt, efficient, or?
ganized action on tho part of all good
oitizens who seek tho prosperity of the
State. Under the banner of Reform,
now upborne by Carponter, Butler, Ker?
shaw, and other kindred spirits, and to
be carried from one end of tho State to
the other, let all the elements of opposi?
tion to the reigning regime bo promptly
gathered. And then let thoso elements
in eaoh County be organized. Without
compact and thorough organization, no
effeotivo work can be done. Let each
County have its local and general clubs
and go vigorously and energetically to
With the reform movement carried to
a successful end, we can soo for South
Carolina a bright and encouraging fu?
ture. Immigration would bo stimulated,
trade would reoeivo an impetus, capital
seek investments hero, and the regene?
ration of South Carolina be quickened.
Peace, security, and prosperity, would
be tho result of reform consummated.
Judgiug from the reports made in the
Charleston News and Courier, of tho re?
cent meetings at Bickens, Pendleton and
Anderson, we have no doubt about the
spirit of tho up-country. That portion
of the State-than which, no other
portion is moro vigorous, and patriotic,
and true-will heartily embrace the re?
form movement; and we aro sure that
no influences that may be brought tc
bear upon thom, by self-seeking parti
sans, will divert them from the supporl
that is duo to reform. Nor will the re
snit be otherwise in the low country, ani
the middle country. Everpwhcre, tin
intelligence and the property of tin
State will be found a unit for retrench
ment and reform. We ask that tho re
commendation of tho Executive Com
mittee of tho reformists, bo complice
with, and that a thorough orgauiza
tiou bo made in ench County in th<
A ll ut eic Imminent.
Thc indications aro that tho Frond
and Prussian armies will soon moot for i
pitched battlo. Both parties haves beet
rapidly coucontratiug their respeotivi
forces. King William was reported a
Mayenco on tho 2Gth, auel Napoleon
after issuing a stirring address, has gou<
to tho front to put himself at tho boat
of his army. It is thought that ho wil
prompt^' cross tho frontior and that thi
Prussians will receives tho attack. It i
held by some writers that Napoleon hui
already under hand 800,000 mon. Iii
army is said to be in a magnificent stab
of eliscipline and his artillery of a Biipcs
rior order. It is cons-idorcd doubtfu
about Prussia being so well prepared a
France for the onset, anil it is likely tba
the Prussians will retire, at least for th
present, behind tho Rhino. lu our jud?
mont, a heavy blow will soon bo struck

In his remarks at Bickens, Gen. Butlc
mado the following charge against Gov
Seott. He said:
"I charge, that shortly precedent t
tho last Presidential election, Gov. Seid
said to Gen. Hamilton, and two otho
geutlemou, that he not only wished th
Stato to voto Democratic, but would ns
bis influence to that cnil; anel that h
was tired of tho negroes, and wouli
make enough of them resign their seat
in the Legislature, so ns to give tho whit
men a majority in that body."
What is tho roply of his Excellency t
this? Let us have somo light upon thi
episodo of tho campaign of 18GS. Th
matter will bo regarded with interc
alike by the Governor's supporters un
by persons generally. Can it bo tin
this light of radicalism and upecial fricn
of tho negro was roady, had tho scale
turned for Seymour and Blair, to helra
those ioho had put their trust in him ?"
What is tho truth? Gen. Butler refoi
to Gen. Hamilton and two other genii
men, as parties to thia affair. Govcrne
Scott will be expected to meet this d
ranging disclosure-a disclosure thi
must have its effect upon his blind nt

WHAT TO DO WITH WHJTTEMOKE.-An
editorial in the New York Tribune says:
We see it stated thal Mr. Whittemore,
the rejected cadet-peddling Congress?
man, purposes becoming onco moro- a
cnndidnte for tho place from which he
has been ejected. Wo should like to
know how it happens that this criminal
is at large, to run for auy office. Who
is the District Attorney in South Caroli?
na, charged with the duty of prosecuting
notorious offenders against the statutes
of tho United States? Why has ho for
months neglected this plain case, and
how mneh longer does he propose to
Hero is tho law which Mr. Whitt?toore
"If any member of Congress shall,
directly or indirectly, receive any pecu?
niary or other valuable compensation for
procuring any office or placo nndor tho
Government, he shall bo liable to indict?
ment for misdemeanor in a United Statos
Court, and upon conviction shall pay a
fine not exceeding 810,000, and bo im?
prisoned in the penitentiary for a term
not oxecoding two years, and bo there?
after disqualified from holding auy office
of honor, profit, or trust, under tho Go?
vernment of tho United States."
That the proper officer may havo no
doubt as to there being sufficient evi?
dence of guilt to warrant the promptest
proceedings, wo recall to his attention
this almost unanimous declaration of tho
House of Representativos:
"Resolved, That B. F. Whittomore,
Into mombcr from the First District of
South Carolina, did make appointments
to tho Military Academy nt West "Point
and thc Naval Academy at Annapolis, in
violation of law, and that such appoint?
ments were influenced by pecuniary con?
siderations, and that his conduct in the
premises has been such ns to show him
unworthy of a seat in tho House of Rep?
resentativos, nud is therefore condomned
as oonduot unworthy of tho representa?
tive of the people."
Now why baa not this notorious of?
fender boeu brought to justico? Why
are wo threatened with tho disgrace of
another canvass in which ho shall bo a
prominent candidato? Why must we bo
subjected to tho possiblo humiliation of
having this man again presented for
membership at the bar of tho House?
We call upon tho District Attorney and
the Courts to do their too-long neglected
duty. And we call upon Attorney-Gone
ral Akerman to seo that they neglect it
no longer. Opon tho penitentiary doors

THE TERRIBLE HEAT IM NEW YORK
MOKE DEATHS VBOM SUN-STOKE.-Tho
New York Times, of Wednesday, says:
I The distressing heat continued yes
i terday, and is having serious effect on
tho lives o? the citizens. Heretofore thc
deaths havo been confined to old men
and youug children, but from tho re?
turns of yesterday it will bo pOi'Coivod
that young and middle-aged men uro
falling victims to the sudden mortality.
Tho thermometer yesterday marked
ninety-five degrees in the shade, and in
tho sun it was fully twenty degrees above
fever boat. But for tho sanitary mea?
sures adopted, there can be out littlo
doubt the intense heat would have ere
this produced a serious epidemic.
A long list of those stricken down is
given, and arhong them we note the
name of John Sheffield, au athlete, aged
fifty-four. Ho was prostrated us he was
starting for Exhibition Hall, and sur?
vived only a few hours.
CUBA.-Thc Key West Dispatch, of the
16th inst., says: Tho latest reliable in?
telligence wo have from Cuba is to thc
effect that much despondency prevails in
Spanish circles because of tho refusal of
the homo Government to send more
troops to the island. Tho guerilla sys?
tem of war, adopted by the patriots, will
cuablo them to carry on the war for au
indefinite period of time. Cholorn,
small-pox and yellow-fever had combined
with the Cubaus against tho Spaniards,
and not even the message of Grant
could impart confidence tu tue adherents
The Now York Sunsnys that Bismarck
and Prim arranged to have Leopold put
on tho Spanish throne, and tho plan
ugrcod upon between tho two rivals was,
that when Loopold had beeomo firmly
seated on tho Spanish throne, ho should
give Cuba her independence, on tho con?
dition, to bo settled beforehand, thnt tho
Cubans should agrco to placo themselves
undor tho protectorate of Prussia, and
should ask for it. In return for tho boon
of independence thus secured, Cuba was
to pay to Spain tho sum ol' 8100,000,000,
and the payment of this sum was to bo
guaranteed by Prussia. In consid?ra?
tion of this guaranty, and tho protecto?
rate, tho North German Confederation
was to havo tho uso of tho port of Ha?
vana, or tho Gulf of Nipe, or any other
waters ol' Cuba, for tho purpose of na?
In tho opinion of Count Bismarck,
it is very desirablo for the North Ger?
man Confederation to acquire a foot?
hold in America, such as this Cuban
arrangement would afford, otherwise
tho Confederation can never become a
naval power of the first class. Tho
limited sea coast and tho fow harbors of
tho Gorman States put any great devel?
opment of maritime forco out of tho
PEDDLING PESTILENCE. - A frightful
crime has como to light in tho West. Some
speculators have boon buying infected
buffalo robes from tho Indians of the
plains who aro afflicted with small-pox,
and havo transported them East and re?
sold them, so that the loathsome disease
hus boon scattered broad-cast in tho
States. Tho facts havo only recently
been discovered. 1,300 robes havo been
seized by tho Government at Uinta sta?
tion. The managers of tho Pacific Rail?
road are using every effort to prevent tho
passage of any moro of the death

The Laurensville Herald, referring to
certain statements, published in the ra?
dical organ .in Charleston, relative to

Tnn POSITION OF FRANCE.-The New
York Times, which has boon notoriously
"a French paper" ever since the inaugu?
ration of tho present hostilities betweon
France and Prussia, has completely
"changed its front" on tho "secret
troaty" as a pivot. Tho Times says:
"Tho disclosure of this conspiracy
changes tho aspect of the whole strug?
gle. Tho attitude of PruBsia, it is true,
is not affected by it, but Franco occu?
pies a position which threatens ber with
n disastor immeasurably greater than
any sho has sustaiuod since Waterloo.
While pretending to bo acting in good
faith with tho English Government, Na?
poleon is revealed in tho act of con?
triving a coup d'etat for a parallol to
which wc must go back to tho early
days of his rulo. Bolgium seemed so
securo that no ono of late years believed
in tho ronewul of French aggression.
Yet at tho moment tho Emperor Napo?
leon has undertaken tho gigantic task of
'subdueiug' Prussia, ho has mannged, by
a trick of inconceivable baseness, to set
England at his throat. Henceforth it ia
no longer au issue between the North
Gcrmau Confederation and Franco.
"Tho power which Napoleon most
dreads, now stands behind Prussia with
ber sword drawn. It issoorcely possible
to imagine any loop-hole by which thc
Emperor can escape from tho not ho har
spun around himself. His objects in
waging war against Prussia wero at leas!
debatable. Count Bismarck's policy hat
often been such, as we havo pointed out
of late, to eu,sl suspicion ou a great cause
But there can bo no two opinions witt
regard to the attempt made by Franco tc
entice Prussia into a crimo which wonk
have had no counterpart since the parti
tiou of Poland. Franco seems doomed
to defeat in tho awful struggle which sin
has taken upon herself, and sho will havi
to thank tho Emperor for the humilia
tiou. If Prussia can beat her single
handed, there may bo no outside inter
forenco. If sho cannot, it is quito clea
that tho English fleet and English armie
will go to her support, and when tba
happens, the days of Napoleon's rulo ar

Convention; for tho rcaaou that there wore
contending delegations from Spartauburg,
and wo accuse Mr. Wallac.'a friends of at?
tempting to pack in their delegates, in order
to control tho nomination. We refused to
submit to what wo regarded as a fraud and
outrage again.-t tho righte of tho people who
entrusted us with their interest. In tho no?
mination of a chairman, the friends of Mr.
Wallace attempted to place the extra delegates
in the room, in order that they might outvote
the legitimate voters, and thereby control thc
temporary organization. This, wo would not
submit to, anti hence, there could be no nomi?
nation, aa the Convention waa never organized.
There will bo a Convention called in the Fourth
District, to make a nomination of Congress?
man, whore and when a fair expression of tho
will of tho peoplo will bo given. Mr. Wallace
doea not receive the support of tho under?
signed. L. WIMRUHH,
