This matter is properly attracting at?
tention.- It is time, we submit, for the
anti-radical and Reform voters of Rich?
land County to decide upon the course
to be pursued. There are two tickets
now before the public, both radical and
both composed of men who are in no
sense representative of tho whites and
property-holders of the city nnd County.
There is, in oar judgment, but one pro?
per course to pursue. The peo plo of
Richland, opposed to radical misrule,
should meet in council and decide upon
what may be deemed most advantageous
to the publia interests. We hope, there?
fore, and we venturo to suggest it, that
the Executive Committee of the Reform
party will provide for a meeting of dole
gates from Richland, to tako into consi
deration the best courso that shall bo
pursued to advance the interests of Rich
laud in tho matter of its County officers.
Is rr EMPIBH OB REPUBLIC?-Whatever
else in the results of the war in Europe
may be uncertain, it ?cenan clear, the
baltimore Sun thinks, that the uoity of
?Germany is to socceed the motley group
.of independent States, of varions sizes,
.whiOh bears the German name. This
?iaa long bepn the aspiration, tho legiti?
mate aspiration, of Germauy. For a
long time only an idea, it is now nt last
seen to be practicable. In a lately pub?
lished letter of David Strauss, a distin?
guished German Bcholnr, ho traces the
progress of this German hope to its ap?
proaching fruition. No one will refuse
to cononr with tho writer when ho says
that German unity is a thing for Ger?
many herself to decide upon. Germans
have a right, as ho maintains, to remodol
the inside of their house as they seo fit.

SPUBQEON TO BISMABCK AND NAPO?
LEON.-Spurgeon, the famous London
preacher, has written a lotter addressed
to Napoleon, Emperor of the French,
and William, King of Prussia. We quote
Did either of you ever think of what
war means? Did you ever seo a man's
head smashed, or his bowels ripped
open? Why, if you nro made of flesh
and blood, the sight of ono poor won mi?
ed man, with the blood oozing out of
him, will make you feel sick. I dou't
like to drown a kitten; I can't bear even
to see a rat die, or any animal in pain.
But a man! where's your hearts if you
can think of broken legs, splintered
bones, heads smashed in, braius blowcd
out, bowels torn, hearts gushiug with
gore, ditches full of blood, and heaps of
limbs and carcasses of mangled men?
Do yon say my language is disgusting?
How much more disgusting must tho
things themselves be! And you make
them! How would you like to got a mau
into your palaco garden and run a carv?
ing knife into his bowels, or cut his
throat? If you did that, you would de?
serve to he hanged; but it would not bo
half so bad as killing tens of thousands,
and you kuow very well that this is just
whut you are going to do. Do you
fancy that your drums aud fifes, and l
feathers and fineries and pomp, make
wholesale murder ono whit the less
abominable in tho sight of God? Do
not deceive your yourselves; you aro no
better than tho cut-throats whom your
own laws condemn.
Better? why, you are worse, for your
murders aro so many. Thiuk, I pray
you, for your poor people will have to
think, whether you do or no. IH there
so little want in the world that you must
go trampling on tho harvest with your
horses aud men? Is there so little sor?
row that you must make widows by the
thousand? Is death so old and feeble
that you must hunt his game for him, as
jackals do for the lion? Do you ima?
gine that God made men for you to play
with? Aro they only mcaut for toys for
you to break? O Kings, a ploughman
tells you lhat their souls are as precious
in God's sight as yours, thoy suffer as
muoh pain when bullets piorce them ns
ever you eau do; they have homes, mid
mothers, and sisters, aud their deaths
will be as much wept over as yours, per?
How can you sit down to eat wheu you
have caused war? Does not the blood
rise in your throat and choko you? Or
are you only devils with crowus on?
Creatures who were never suokled nt a
woman's breast, and therefore have no
human feeling? It will bo hard for you
to think of tho blood you have shed
when you lie dying, aud harder BUU to
bear the heavy hand of God when he
shall cast nil murderers into hell.
Whichever it is of you that has been the
cause of this wicked war, I say you
smell of blood; yon ought to bo' more
hated than tho common hangman, and
instead of being called "His Majesty,"
you ought to be hooted as a demon.

THE PAP AL TKBJMTOBT.-After a rale
extending over a period of more than
1,100 years, the day seems at hand when
the Pope shall cesse to exercise temporal
Eowor, and when Rome ahall on co more
ecome the oapi?l of j Italy. Ten years
ago, tbe greater part Of the Papal terri?
tory revolted and waa annexed to the
Government of Victor Emmanuel. In
1859, the Pope's temporalities covered
15,289 squa.ro milos of territory, contain?
ing a population of 3,124,668. The re?
volt of 1860 took away everything but
the civil divisions of Borne and Comarca,
Vitorbo, Civita Veocbin, Velletri and
Frosiuone-the whole containing 4,599
square milos and a population of 692,106.
Geographically, the States of tho Church
are bounded on the North by Tuscany,
on tho East by Umbr?a and Naples, and
on tho South-west by the Mediterranean
Sea. Their greatest extent from North
to South is about 120 miles, with n
breadth varying from eighteen to fifty
miles, The coast line measures about
160 miles, aud is in nearly all places low
aud ofleu marshy. Although it is broken
by unmerous bays, nearly all are so small
and shallow that they are totally unfit
for harbor purposes. Civilu Vecchia is
tho single exception, and even that place
possesses but few natural advuutages as
a commercial sea-port. It has been,
however, since 1860, tho only sea port
held by tho Pope, and has served as tho
principal means of entrance aud exit to
and from Rome.
Should tho States of tho Church be
nuuoxcd to Italy, tho oldest Government
in Europo will bo swept ont of existence.
During tho reign of tho Emperor Cou
stautiuo the Catholic Church began ac?
quiring property in Rome. In 726 tho
Popes possessed considerable power and
iufiuonce. Elected by the popular vote,
they had endeared themsolves to the
poople, xvho finally paid them that alle
giauco which had been extended to thc
Emperors. When, in 741, tho Lombards
laid siege to Rome, tho Pontiff, Gregory
III. sent an .embassy to Franco, implor?
ing tho aid ot Charles Martel. Subse?
quently Popo Stephen II obtained the
uid of Pepin, who marched an army into
Italy, defeated the Lombards and com?
pelled their King not only to abandon
his design upon Rome, but also to cede
to the Pope n great deal of territory,
situated principally on the Adriatic.
From this time tho Popes became tem?
poral sovereigns and their territorial ]
possessions were greatly enlarged by
Charlemagne after his destruction of thu
Lombard monarchy. Ever siuco thu
Popes havo been the rulers of Rome and
a great part of Italy. Repeatedly driveu
from tho city and despoiled of their
temporalities, they have always succeed?
ed in regaining possession after intervals
of war. lu 1860 tho fint what may be
called peaceable spoliation took place,
nearly all foreign powers advising Pope
Pius to acquiesce iu the seizure of the
greater part of his dominions. Napo
loou III recommended him to volunta?
rily give up everything but Rome. Ho
indign?t ly rejected this advice, aud re?
sponded to tho violence of thc Italian
Government by excommunicating Victor
Emmanuel. Ho is noa', we suppose,
powerless to resist what seems to bo the
inevitable result of the present Europenu
liitioUAM YOUNG'S LAST SCHEME.-A
Salt Lake letter to tho Chicago Tribune
says: Brigham aud his Cabinet have
gouo South nguiu-it is said by some for
a three weeks' trip only. Others say
that bo docs not design returning nt all,
certainly not till next spring; but, on the
contrary, iuteuds to busy himself with
founding a new "Zion" in Arizona-a
sort of Holy of Holies of Mormonism
to whoso sequestered retreats none but!
the Simon-pure saints will be admitted.
Majori'1. II. Head, Indian Agent under

Presently caine from thnt direction Gov.
McCormick, of Arizona, and there is a
whispering of a scheine for consolidating
Utah aud Arizona, and getting them ad?
mitted into tho Union as thu State (if
Arizona. There ceretainly has been
consultation over it, but the idea of
Blipping polygamous Utah into the
American Uuiou under cover of sun?
burnt, Apucho-cursed Arizona is too
preposterous t > talk about. That Brig?
ham is endeavoring to secure a foot-hold
in Arizona, however, GOO or 6UU miles
from here, to which ho might retreat iu

from bis frequent journeys in that direc?
tion of late.
A California paper tells tho following
story to illustrate tho knack of the Chi?
nese to do whatever anybody elso can :
"Not far from San Jose a gentleman
wanted fourteen houses built. A China?
man took the job, and hired an American
carpenter to build one of them. While,
ho was doing HO, the Celestials laid
around and watched every movement he
made. As soon us ho finished it the
Chinamen discharged him, and erected
tho others themselves. When they were
done tbe best judges could not tell which
was built by tho white mau."

STATU Aot?o?i/r?BAii So?TJ?rr.- We
are indebted to Colonel D.W. Aiken? the
activo and energetlo Secretary of the State
Agricultural Society, for a number of
copies of the ? premium list of the next
Fair in Columbia, which we will toke
pleasure io famishing to our agricultu?
ral friends. The Fair will come off du?
ring the second week of November, to
wit: on the 9th, 10th and 11th of the
month, being tho week after the Fair in
Charleston, and two weeks after the Fair
in Abbeville It promises to be a splen?
did affair, as favoring seasons bnvo se?
conded the efforts of the Executive Com?
mittee, who have spured no c-flbrt to get
up an exhibition which shall do credit to
the State. Some $7,000 worth of pre?
miums will bo distributed; and every ef?
fort has boen made to enlist an interest
in behalf of tho enterprise at homo and
abroad. Prominent citizens o? other
States, including editors of leading jour?
nals, have been invited to be present,
and responses have been received ex?
pressing a great desire to visit the State.
Tho expenso of traveling is th? chief ob?
stado suggested, but nu appeal to thu
liberality of the various railroads would
likely induce thom to como to the aid of
tho Society, aud encourage tho presence
here of intelligent Mrangers, who could
do so much to promote immigration
Our own people we expect to turu out
en masse on the occasion. Abbeville, we
know, will be fully represented, both
among exhibitors and spectators. Our
District Fair will only shurpen the appe?
tites of both; aud tho excitement and
enjoyment of the week here, will only
stimulate our friends to new excitement
and enjoyment on a wider held and more
conspicuous arena. Let our friends all
como to tho Abbeville Fair, then go to
Charleston if they can, and then to Co
lutnbia. Thus they will complete the
rounded circle of enjoyment, if the
money can be induced to hold out so
The Secretary informs us that the I
prizes awarded at the Inst Fair are now
ready for distribution. He says that
they aro models of beauty, and artistic j
skill.-Abbeville Press and Banner.
From the "official statement" of the ?
cotton crop of the United States, just i
issued by Messrs. Antens & Bourne, of
New York, we take tho folio wi ug figures: I
Tho total crop for tho year ending Aug. !
31, 1870, amounts to 3,114,502 baler, j
This represents tho produce of niue |
States, in all of which then; has been a
marked increase over the crop of last
year, and iu (Iveof which there has been j
au increase when compared with the full
crop of tho j'ear ending August, 1808
Tho aggregate for tho year is 854.035
bales more thuu that of the crop 1808-9,
and 683.001) bales more than that of the
crop 1807-8. Tho grand total of ship?
ments for tho year just closed has been
2,178,55!) bales, showing an increase
over last year of 725,910 bales. The
total of bales taken for home consump?
tion during tho year has been 857,181,
showing a decrease of 01,570 bales when
compared with 1808-9, and of 101,002
when compared with 1867-8. When
compared with ante-war years, we hud
that the present 3Tenr's crop is larger than
that of uuy year preceding 1855-6, with
the single exception of 1852-3, which
slightly exceeds it. The average crop of
thu Ove years between September, 1805,
and August, 18(50, amounted to 3,820,515
bales, of which the crop of the present
year only falls 705,923 bales short.
Paris is not, after all, to be considered
"the last ditch" of French resistance.
According to the latest Parisian ?les,
the city of Bourges, situated iu the Do
partment of the Cher, on n canal con?
necting the river of that name with the
Loire, is to become the central position
of defence in tho event of Paris being I
captured. Placed in the very heart of 1
France, and being ut once a great rail- ]
way centre and a depot nf the iron
manufacture, Bourges was designated by j
the law of July 2, 1801, as the foint
where a great internal stronghold should
bo formed as the last refuge of a defeat?
ed army and a still unconquered people.
The lirst. step to bo taken toward this
wus the concentration there of all the
gun foundries and other establishments
devoted to the production of munitions
of war. In spite of liberal money votes,
however, both by the national aud local
authorities, tho transformation of Bour?
ges into a central arsenal had not com?
menced when the war bloke out. But
the advantages of its situation as a great
rallying point still exist, and in the last'
extremity of Franco may still bo taken j
advantage of.-Nato York Tim's.
SmrwmccK AND LOSS OF LIFE.-We j
learn that the steamer Cape Fear, which
left this port ou Saturday last, in com- j
patty with tho steamer Thorn, for Butti
more, both being under the immediate |
command of Captain Harrington, was
shipwrecked on Monday lust, oil the
shoals of Capo Lookout, and that two
of her crow were drowned. The Cupo
Fear was ono of the steamers which was
sunk in tho river below this city during
the war, and which was recently raised.
