Lot Columbia this day pay her tributed
to the memory of this eminent South-]
Tile Reform mooting in Charleston.
The Charleston News gives us a full!
. account of . the grand Reform meeting lol
Charleston on Tuesday evening last.
Col. Simona presided. General Hamp?
ton, General Butler, M. P. O'Connor,I
Col. Rutledge and others spoke, and the]
meeting dosed amid muoh enthusiasm.
The meeting was frequently interrupted!
by radical brawlers, and finally it became!
necessary to drive these characters away,
after which the speaking was quietly!
carried on. Several colored R?formiste?
spoke. The crowd was estimated at!
5,000 persons, embraoing all classes.!
Oar CITY BY THE SEA has spoken inj
thander-tones, and we learn with grati-'
fioatiou of the greeting that Generals!
Hampton and Butler received in behalf!
of the redemption of tbe State.
We believe that Mr. Timothy Hurley!
is considered a man of mark and author?
ity and influence in the radioal party of [
this State. From a card published by
him in the Charleston Republican, of
Ootober ll, it will be seen what his views
are as to the duty of the people to have
a fair election. Tho following is the
A FAIR ELECTION.
To the Friends of the Regular Ticket of \
the 12/A of September:
Tho Managers of Elections having!
been appointed, grave doubts exist ns to!
the fairness of the eleotion. I desire to!
say in behalf? of the regular Convention]^
and Mr. Bowen's interest, that we teil
have a fair election, NO MATTER WHAT n
COSTS. No man shall be permitted tol
tamper with the votes. A committee!
will be appointed to WATCH THLSE BOXES
-and to guard them after the polls are
closed, and to see that they aro placed io|
a secure place until counted by tho Com?
missioners of Eloction. Again, Ircpcat,!
every vote cast in this County, no mat?
ter for what candidate it is cast, must|
and shall be counted for lum.
We propose now that our friends inl
every County in this State take this textj
of Timothy's and act upon it. Lot thc
Reform party in every County see to ii
tbat we bave a fair election and ? fair]
count, just as Timothy Hurley proposes.
LET US HAVE PEACE.-The President

pleasure of the White ; House by pre?

THE CAEOLINA ISSUE.-A distinguish -
ed Northorn man passing through South
Carolina, a few days ago, was suprisedat
the military influences nativo at Ridge
Post Office, Edgefield Distriot, a station
OJ tho Charlotte, Columbia and Angusta
Railroad. Two companies of SeottV
Winchester Riflemen, who were being
drilled at a short distance from the rail?
way, marched to the station to exhibit
their proficiency in tho mannal of arma
and field evolution. Of course ull were
colored-highly colored, exclusively
colored, save the gleam of the rifles and
bayonets. Naturally enough thia distin?
guished traveler (who, by the way, ba?
gained distinction in wooing tho muses,
und not in the field of politics nor in thc
trts of war) asked what means this mili?
tary? Promptly tho answer was given,
an election approaches, and Soott, the
reconstructed Governor of South Caro?
lina, having proclaimed "Winchester
rifle to be the best law," exhibits his
faith by his works, and here is the evi
denco both of executive faith and execu?
tive intent. "Really," said the gentle?
man, "I had no idoa of this. Does thc
Governor mean to array the blacks against
the whites, and control tho ballot by the
bayonet. I am a Republican, although
uevor either activo or oaring much about
politics; but this shooks mo. I cannot
subsoribo to such Republican prinei?
Long before tho plan of the present
political campaign was inaugurated, R.
K. Scott, the incumbent of the Execu?
tive Obair in South Carolina, deliberate?
ly, at the "Capitol of the Nation," in
Washington City, announced "tho Win?
chester rifle to be the best law," not only
for South Cnroliua, but with an expand?
ing outlook for Georgia and North Caro?
lina. Oa Wednesday next, the author of
this infamous, diabolical radical doctrine
will doubtless display the practical ap?
plication of his political creed. Military
ballots will be cast, and military ord srs
will direct tho polls. This is the legiti?
mate deduction. Grant said to tho peo?
ple of the United States, "Let us have
poaoo." Mendoza Scott says to the peo?
ple of South Carolina, "Thc Winchester
rifle is the best law." Does Scott sup?
port tho administration? Doos the ad?
ministration suetaiu Scott with bis rifle
law? Whioh is the true Republican?
Which tho loyalist? The. issue before
tho people of South Carolina-forced
upon thom by the incumbent of the
highest official in the State-is, whioh i?
che best law-tho Winchester rifle or the
ballot? Neither of the candidates were
citizens of tho State beforo tho close of
the war. Scott is for the rifle law. Car?
penter in for a free ballot aud reform io
administration. Between those are the
people of ?Carolina to choose.

Correspondence from the headquar?

bombardment of Paris will begin during
the present or coming week, probably
ou the 16th, tho anniversary of the bat
tie of Leipzig, on the refnsal of the city
to accede to a formal demand for surren?

intense feeling in London, in view ol
tho horrors which must inevitably fol

mediation und armistice are moro elo

The German residents expelled iron
Franco have prepared a petition for pre
mentation to the King of Prussia, sotting
forth their cluims to an indemnity ?o?
their forced exodus. They complain
with every appearance of reason, that tin
late decree which compelled all Germaui
to leavo Prance within three days mean
utter ruin to a vory large proportion o
them. "In tho places of business, tlx
work-shops and the dwclliug-honses
everything had tobe loftus it stood.'
In tho Department of tho Soino aloni
80,000 persons wero obliged to leavi
business and property, and in somo casei
wives aud childron, to ?leo from tin
country of their adoption, "to which the;
had for years dovoted their onergy, ant
the prosperity of which they had dom
much to secure." Tho money losses o
tho Germans expelled from all parts o
Franco aro estimated as amounting t<
2,000,000 of dollars in gold. At this rab
the Republic will soon have a very for
amiable bill to pay.

?.' DIED ron DouiABs.-A startling in m H
Ident is related in connection with th eg
fe?od in Virginia, and one whioh shows!
with what tenao?ty some people willi
Ktfng to dollars, y in this'oase a man badi
tho earnings o? .yearn in an iron fi?fe.l
By bis aide was bis wife and seven chil-1
dren. The roaring watero of the swol-E
lon river were robbing through tho loweri
stories of his house, outside were a par-l
ty of neighbors with a boat, and whog
had risked their lives to nave this family.
The man would not leave the house
without the safe; tho woman refused to
leave without the husband, and there
they remained watching the safe; the
waters rose higher and higher; with but
a moment's warning the houso was car?
ried from its foundations, and in a few
minutes man, woman and seven children
lay silently at the bottom of the river.
Truly they died for dollars.
THE HATRED OP REPUBLICS.-It natl
been already stated that the mission oil
M. Thiers to the great powers of Eu?
rope has failed to elicit tho sympathy ot
aid of Russia, England or Anstrin. The
geuerol view which they toke of the
situation is that- there is no government
in Franco which they can recognize.
Seeing that the provisional government
is universally acknowledged and oboyod
throughout Franco, it is difficult to see
why it is not a government; and hence
the conjecture is at least a plausible ode
jihat the real objection to the recognition
is that the new government is Republican,
tf this is the trueo^oRO of the monarohial
ignoring of the only supremo authority
recognized in Franco, it is a challenge to
the liberal and progressive ideas of the
ago which the German people will one
day toke the lead in answoriog, if the
wur leaves them in a condition to express
their political ideas on nny subject.
THOUGHT IT WAS HEH HUSBAND.-One|
dark night, not long ago, a burglar en?
tered a private residence in Sixth Ave?
nue. On ascending one flight of stairs!
be observed a light in a chamber, andi
whilo hesitating what to do a largo wo-I
man suddenly descended upon him,
seized him by the throat, forced him
down through tho hall, and pushed him
iuto the street before he bad time to
think. "Heroic Repulso of a Burglar by
j a Woman" was the way tho story ap?
peared in the newspapers next day. Bu tl
when friends called nnd congratulated!
her upon her courage she exclaimed:
"Good gracious! I didn't know it was a
burglar. If I bad I should have been
frightened to death. I thought it was
my husband, como homo drunk ngain,
lind I was determined ho shouldn't stay
(in the house in that condition."

HonniBUE SCENE AT AN EXECUTION.
Tho Vienna Wanderer relates a horrible
scone which occurred at Corinth, in
Greece, at the execution of a number ol
brigands, The criminals were six in
number, and two of them drew doggert
it tho moment when they wore to lay
their heads under the fatal axe, and
rushed upon the executioners with frantic
fury. One of tho latter owed bia safety
only to a coat of mail ho wore under his
fdiirt, while auother was dangerously
wounded. Tho rest had to defend them?
selves with their axes and knives against
tho robbers, and did this with so much
fury that two of tho criminals were dead
iud chopped to pieces before their heads j
fell by tho fatal axe. This horrible spec?
tacle was enacted beforo an immonso con?
course of people.

Secretary Cox, at Washington, proposos
to retire soon from tho Cubinet, in cou
sequence of his disgust at tho corrupt]

to maintain that office-holders, whiit
absent, from Washington, strolling
through the country for pleasure, should
not bo paid. And for these anti-radical
opinions, Gen. Grant-tho prince ol

teeth at Secretary Cox, and threatening
to dismiss him as one of tho unfaithful.
