COLUMBIA, S. C.
Thursday Horning, Sop to'r 29,1870.
Fire Alon? the Whole Linc.
From the offioial notice in another co?
lumn, it will bo seen that the Executive
Committee of the Stato Reform Party
propose that all the Reform batteries
open simultaneously on sales day in Oc?
tober next. The notice is porhap3 rather
late, but let us hope that it may roach all
tho divisions, and that boforo such a
concentrated fire, tho Sedan of radical?
ism may go down. To Richland, ex
Governor Vance, of N. C., Major Baxter,
of Newberry, and J. S. Richardson, Esq.,
of Sumter, havo beon assigned. These
gentlomon aro ull effective speakers, and
on behalf of tho Reformers of this city

welcome to thom.
How Centralism Han Wcoli.ciit.tl Km ncc.
The most awful and impressive lesson
taught by tho stupendous spectacle now
exhibiting in Franco for the warning of
nations, says the Now York World, is
tho enervating effect of a centralized
government on national strength. The
French are the most iugenious, culti?
vated and civilized of modern people.
They aro a nation of 40,000,000 consist?
ing of ono of tho best stocks of tho hu?
man race-bravo, impetuous, patriotic,
ambitious, smitten with the love of glory
and greatness; quick, adaptable, abound?
ing in every kind of resources; and yet
this great nation crumbles and collapses
under a few vigorous strokes from a rival
whose power is of yesterday. Two mil?
lions of its people aro enciroled and be?
sieged in their capital, and the remain?
ing 38,000,000, instead of organizing to
raise the Biege, release their compatriots,
and drive out the invader, aro paralyzed
spectators of this great national humilia?
If New York, instead of Paris, were
thus hummed in by an invading army,
with what prompt alacrity would tho
whole country rise in arms and rush to
its relief ! How little would au enomy
accomplish towards subduing this nation
by investing its metropolisl A central?
ized government partially realizes tho
wish of au uueient tyrant that tho whole
human racu had but one neck so that ho
could hang them all by one stretch of
tho rope. When tho French army is
beaten aud the French capital besieged,
the whole nation seems disabled for any
further immediate effort. This is a le?
gitimate consequence of the system
which permits no local lifo and represses
all self-prompted exertion anil independ?
ent activity on tho part of the people.
A vigorous, spontaneous political lifo in
all the parts of a groat em piro renders
absolutism so insecure that a deupot
cannot afford to tolerate it. His only
Bafoty lies in disaccustoming his peoplo
to the exercise of political functions,
and preventing their acquisition of those
habits of ready organization and concert
of action ou public occasions, by which
their dormant power eau bo rendered
efficient. Such efficiency might bo used
by tho people to vindicate their libertios.
Wheu a despot represses it to prevent
their making reclamations against him?
self, he equally weakens the power of
the nation to withstand foroign aggres?
sion when his armies have suffered de?
feat. A decentralized nation, in the full
enjoyment of local libertios, trained to
sclf-relianco, and accustomed to act in?
dependently of superior direction, can
bring its whole strength iuto organized
exertion on a Budden emergency. Like
"Vital in every part,
It cannot, but by annihilating, die."
The condition to which France has
been so suddenly reduced, is tho most
forcible argument furnished by modern
history against centralization, and in
favor of permitting free play to tho spirit
of locnl solf-regulation and self-help.
There is a philosophical passage in Do
Tocqucville, which wc are tempted to
quote in this connection: "Centraliza?
tion," ho says, "imparts without difti
culty au admirable regularity iu the rou?
tine of business; rules the details of the
social polico with regularity ; perpetuates
a drowsy precision in thc conduct of af?
fairs, which is hailed by tho heads of the
administration as a sign of perfect ordor
and public tranquility; in short, it ex?
cels moro iu prevention than iu action.
Its forco deserts it when society is to bo
disturbed or accelerated iu its course;
ami if the co-operation of private citi?
zens is necessary to t\v? furtherance of
its measures, the secret of its impotence
ia disclosed. Even while it invoke:; their
nssistauce, it is on thu condition that
they shall act precisely as tho Govern
mont chooses, and exactly in the manner
it appoints. These, however, aro not
tho conditions on which the alliance ol
tho human will is to bo obtained; its
carriage must bo free and its actions re?
sponsible, or (such i:i the constitution of
man) the citizen had rather remain a
passivo spectator than a dependent actor
in schemes with which he is unac?

Sn?: Capt. F. W. Dawson and othors
of the Union Boform Party hove spoken
to me on the subject of the ensuing
election in this State, setting forth their
desire to have joint committees appoint?
ed for each polling precinct throughout
tho State, say two from each party,
whose duty it will be to seo that fair play
is had at the polls and in the canvassing
of tho votes, to which I heartily agree.
Mr. Oardozo, Mr. MaokeyandMr. Nash,
of the Republican Exeoutive Committee,
to whom I havo spoken, concur.
Of course it will bo a matter for tho
decision of tho County canvassers, as to
whether or not these committees will bo,
os such, permitted to witness inquisito?
rially the canvassing of tho votes. In
my judgment tho pinn ought to recom?
mend itself to both parlies. In any
case I shall do what I can in this and
every other way legitimately to secure a
fair election. Though a candidate my?
self, I should spuru from me the thought
of occupying au oilice that has been se?
cured by fraud or violence.
I do not think that tho Reform party
need fear, whether this plan is adopted
or not, that the Ropublicau party iutend
to elect its candidates by any other than
fair and legitimate means.

lasts threo days. Each one is to bo ou n

Tho Republicans of Illinois refuse to
work quietly iu tho party traces on the
tariff question. They have, in conven?
tion assembled, passed a resolution de?
daring that Congress has no right to
impose taxes "except for tho mainte?
nance of the Government, the payment
of its debts, aud the promotion of the
general welfare;" and that it is "wrong?
ful and oppressive" to "enact revenue
laws for tho special ndvantngo of ono
branch of business at tho expenso of
another." This looks as if tho people
of tho West were coming to their senses.
High tariffs will uo longer bo tolerated
either in Missouri or Illinois.

M. Sedillot, ono of tho most distin?
guished surgcous in Paris, baa found a
nearly infallible means of preventing tho
pain and suffering occasioned by surgi?
cal operations. By means of au electri?

of hhs instruments to a white heat, and
then performs tho operation, which is
.scarcely felt by tho patient, as burns at
that iutense heat cause little or no pain.
The Radical* and the Germana.
Tho radical demagogues who sought
to make party capital out of their sym?
pathy for the Germans, in the war now
going on in Europe, have involved them?
selves and their party in an embarrass?
ing dilemma. As> long os the Germans
were all united in the prosecution of the
war, and the parties thereto wore King
William and Louis Napoleon, it was
quito a cheap and profitable display of
sympathy to hurrah for tho German eide.
But now, since the downfall of Napoleon
and tho organization of a republic, and
ita recognition by President Grant, tho
issuo becomes apparently one between a
King invading and n republic defending
its people, and tho radicals find their
position quite a difficult one. They aro
between tho Scylla of offending tho Ger?
mans and tho Charybdis of placing
themselves in antagonism with a repub?
lic, and in favor of th?) strongest and
most absoluto monarch "by tho grace of
God" iu Europe How can they run
with Kiug William and hold with tho
French Republic? Several of tho New
York journals of tho radical persuasion
havo essayed to extricate themselves
from this perplexity, by tentatively sug?
gesting that tho German people would
not justify King William in prosecuting
the war against tho French Republic and
people. But tho Teuton response is uot
encouraging. Meetings have been held
in New York by the Gormans, at which
they declare that they will approve aud
support tho war as ardently against tho
pooplo of Franco as they did when it
waa Waged against Louis Napoleon. They
will not bo blarneyed away from their
origiual position, but stick to Kiug Wil?
liam. With them, it is a war of race
against race. Even tho old King's rofu<
sid to treat with the Republic, and his
offor to accept aud consider propositions
from tho Emperor and tho Regency, ap?
pear to havo the approval of his German
followers. Thoy announced at tho begin
liing that tho war was against tho ruler
who provoked it, and not against the poo?
plo of Franco. Yet, when that ruler is a
captive, they proposo to reiustato him or
his dynasty, and to treat with ono or tho
other for peace. This, at least, is tho
last version of King William's position,
Wo trust it is an erroneous one, how
muchsoevor we should rejoice over the
embarrassments it would bring upon tho
radical demagogues who have so dishon?
estly sought, by falso pretences, to ap?
propriate German votes and influcuco in
our political contesta, by hollow profes?
sions and demagogical demonstrations.

A TRAGEDY: IN* INDIANA-PROBABLE
DODBIIE MURDER AND SUICIDE.-A cor?
respondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer,
writing from Indianapolis, 18 th instant,
It seems that a young man named
Long in other days had paid his ad?
dresses to a Misa Winship, tho daughter
of Mr. Jesse Winship, who lives on a
farm uear tho village of Milroy. Ho
hail made proposals of marriage, but was
rejected through tho iullueuco of the
mother. Tho daughter subsequently
married Mr. Jackman, and the newly
married couple were living in tho neigh?
borhood. On last Friday night Long
carao to tho residence of Jackman, and
giving a fatso name, wanted admittance.
Tho family, fearing there was no good
will iu bia request, refused his eutrauce.
Fiuding that be was determined to break
in, Jackman and his wife ran ovor to
air. Rico's, near by. Bice und Jackman
then returned to Jackman's residence,
ami seeing no oue, entered tho house and
got dowu a rifle, which they began to
load, wheu Long rushed in ou them with
a rovolvor, and firiug, shot Jackman
through tho arm. Then turning to Rico
he said: "You are Jackman's friend, aro
you? I will kill you." Ho fired,
autl shot Rice through tho neck, and
.seeing him fall, ho then escaped, but his
devilish work was not yet doue. Ho
wcut over to Jesse Wiuship's, aud rous?
ing np tho family ho shot Mrs. Wiuship,
aud then loft. Going homo to his
father's, ho told them what he had done,
and then turuiug his revolver to his
head, bo blew out his own bruins. It
was thought very doubtful whether Mrs.
Winship or Rice would survive. The
wholo country is wild with excitement,
and hundreds aro runuiug to see tho
wounded and learn tho particulars of
tho terrible affair. Tho families aro all
of tho first respectability, and tho Wiu?
ship family is among tho wealthiest in
