COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday tforning, August 3, 1870.
Tho Assistant Adjutant-General, El?
liott, in his speech accepting thc nomi?
nation for Congress in the Third Con?
gressional District, stutts that he deems
his election of secondary importance to
that of Governor Scott. "You might got
along without me; you could ill afford to
do without Governor Scott." That will
do for him.
In his speech of acceptance of his
nomination for the Fourth Congres?
sional District, Mr. A. S. Wallace mado
remarkable and gushing remarks. "I
bave," says Mr. W., "through terror and
through blood, borne the Republican flag
for the Fourth Congressional District,"
&c, &c. We know of no "terror" and
no "blood," osceptBuch may have arisen
in Mr. Wallace's imagination. As Shnk
spenre has it- *
"In tho night, imagining aomo fear,
How eaBy ia a bush auppoaod a bear."
ENGLAND'S NEUTRALITY.-It appears
that the indignation expressed by tho
London press at the secret treaty alleged
by Bismarck to have beep proposed by
France to Prussia, does not prevent the
honest tradesmen of England from sell?
ing, in a secret way, contraband of war
to Frunce. At least, the North German
Gazelle complains that England supplies
Franoe with cartridges with which to
slaughter Germans, and soems to doubt
if that can bo considered neutrality.
But yjen tho Gazette ought to remember
that trade is king in England, and that
the enterprising merchants of that king?
dom have been known to sell contrabaud
of war to the enemies of their own coun?
try. This was not because they loved
England less, but because they ' loved
commerce more. Both parties to the
present European contest may as well
accept the neutrality of Euglaud as
moaning that she will not take sides with
either, but will sell impartially to both,
aud if Prussia cannot obtain goods as
readily us France, that is her misfortune
in not having a largo navy to protect her
merchantmen, and not the fault of Eng?
land, which, we dare say, would gladly
sell anything she has to anybody, except
her honor. Probably, there is no nation
in the world which has evinced a stronger
disposition to avail herself of the lights
of experience than England, and her re?
collection of what the wars against the
first Napoleon cost her, is likely to make
her cautious hereafter about putting her
fingers into European battle-fires. Her
ruling idea now seems to be that fools
make war, and wiso mon profit by their
misfortunes, iu the way of selling con?
traband and doiug the carrying trade.
If she departs from that position, she
has less practical sense than she has ob?
tained credit for. . It scarcel}- needed the
late assurauco of Lord Granville, in the
House of Lords, that Euglaud would
preservo a strict neutrality between
Prussia aud Franco.
SOUTH CAROLINA BATTIST STATE CON?
VENTION-.-A correspondent of the
Charleston Neus, referring to tho meet?
ings of this body in Greenville, sa3's:
Last night Kev. Dr. Reynolds, of Co?
lumbia, delivered an historical address,
to a very largo audience. Ho traced tho
early history of Baptists in South Caro?
lina, aud gave an interesting account of
the trials and experiences of thc great
pioneers of this d?nomination. Accord?
ing to his statements, Rev. Wm. Screven
was tho first Baptist minister who locatod
in South Carolina. This was about the
year 1G73. Georgetown was thc scene of
his first labors, but in a few years he re?
moved to Charleston and founded the
First Baptist Church of that city, about
tho year 1GS3. Dr. Reynolds paid a
beautiful and deserving tribute to Rev.
Dr. Richard Furman, whose, raernoiy is
still ;-;o much cherished, not only in your
city, but throughout the entiro State.
The address of Dr. Reynolds was well
received, and displayed that elegant dic?
tion and classic finish for which the
learned divine is so well known.
To-day tho delegation to the conven?
tion was considerably increased by fresh
arrivals, and it is how estimated that the
convention is larger than any held .since

The New York Herald shows, in a
pithy paragraph, that German Unity, or
rather a Prussianized Germany, may bo
better brought about by war than by
peace. Thc Prussian reason is tbua
"lu a state of peace the South Ger?
man countries have au independent ex?
istence, but during war they become
practically a part of tho Prussian power.
War, then, effectively joins South Ger?
many to tho North German Union. And
this is the reason why war may be re?
garded without displeasure at Berlin; for
when war has once added these South
German Slates to Prussia, we may trust
Bismarck that they will hover bo free

THE REPUBLICAN MASS MEETING
GREAT EXCITEMENT-SEPARATE MEETING
OF THU FACTIONS, .fcc.-Tho mass meet?
ing of th? Republicans, called to take
placo at the Battery yesterday afternoon,
was attended bj both tho Bowen and
DeLargo factions, although ft waa pretty
generally understood that it was to be
principally in the interest of the Bowen
ites. At times bloodshed seemed immi?
nent, and many a side fight occurred.
T. J. Mackey received a severe blow
from a bystander. Upon the whole, it
was ono of tho bitterest and most intem?
perate political gatherings that has ever
occur roil in this city, and reflected great
discredit upon thoso engaged in it.
The excitement was not confined to
the Battery, but was continued up into
tho city, and for several hours knots of
angry disputants monopolized the cor?
ners. That there is trouble in the radi?
cal ranks can no longer bo gainsayed in
tho faco of yesterday's doings; let the
Reformers close up and maintain a steady
front, and ere they expect it, victory will
perch on their unsullied banner.
MOLDING THE GALLOWS IN ILLINOIS.
A riot occurred at .Shel hy ville. Ul., on
the 20th, arising from the Governor
commutiug the sentence of Hubbard
Holden, who was to have been executed
with Joseph Myers for tho murdor of
Plebcsco Calhoun, committed two years
ago. This caused great indignation, as
it was asserted that Holden pleaded guil?
ty of murder, and did tho shooting.
Tho Governor was denounced on all
sides, and Tuesday night it was expected
that tho jail would be attacked and My?
ers released. Tho jail was guarded by a
hundred armed men. On Friday morn?
ing attempts were mado to tear down the
fence enclosing tho gallows, but they
were repplsed by the guard. Myers was
executed, and ten minutes afterward tho
mob charged ou tho fence and tore it
down, but finding they were two late to
save Myors, they dispersed, sweariug
vengcauco against tho Governor. But
for tho conciliatory speeches of several
leading citizens blood would have been

THB REMOVAL OP DR. J. W. PARKER.
AB our readers will observe our esteemed
townsman, Dr. J. W. Parker, bas been
removed from the Superintendency of
the Asylum-ft post that he hos held for
thirty-four years. Tho removal is mnde
by Governor Scott upon thc basis, us he
states, of tho recommendation of tho
Board of Regents. This Board is, of
course, thc Board appointed under tue
radical regime, which now ewerts ?ts
baleful influenco over so many interests
in tho State. It was unnecessary for
Governor Scott to add his commcuda
tion to the manner in which Dr. Parker
has discharged his high and delicato
trust. Tho State and tho community
arc well iuformed upon this point. It is
known with what skill, kiudness and
efficiency the late Superintendent ful?
filled thc duties of his office. And it is
equally well understood that Dr. Parker
is removed for no cause whatever, ex?
cept that tho demands of PARTY required
that his place should bo vacnted by him.
We regret that tho Lunatic Asylum bas
lost its efficient bend, but we congratu?
late tho ex-Suporintcndcnt upon the
fact that even party prejudice, in remov?
ing him from his place, could couueot
with his name and services no disparag?
ing circumstance. We arc pleased to be
able to say that Dr. Parker's successor,
Dr. J. P. Ensor, although a comporativo
struuger hero, has commended himself
to tho kindly consideration of many of
our citizens, and wc consider it fortu?
nate that a gcntlcmau like Dr. Eu6or
fouud favor enough with thc Regents of
the Asylum to receive the appointment.
Dr. Parker, wo aro informed, will bo
absent for several weeks-having niado
all his arrangements to accompany ono
of his family to tho springs before re?
ceiving notice of his removal. The
following is thc official notification:

A BEAUTIFUL THO CU UT.-ll may be truth?
fully said that tho greatest of all blessings is
health, for without it the joys vouchsafed arc
turned to sorrows. To all health is essential
for life's enjoyment and pursuits, to tho
young and old, to the rich and poor. Aro you
in etnrch of wealth? Health is necessary.
Do y<>u desire oflico and worldly honor's?
Of what avail would these bo without health?
Thc beauties of spring, tho song of birds, thc
deep bino sky, tho rolling ocoau, all havo a
poetic fascination which charms only thc
healthy in mind and body; but to the sick
what ure these but mockeries. The body dis
eased, the mind sickly o'er with tho saddest
of thoughts. Oh! that I may live to appre?
ciate the blessings of health. This rich boon
is within the roach of all. Tho remedy at
hand in HBINITSH'S Qi LI:N'S DELIGHT, tho
health panacea. Now is tho limo to trv lt.
