<B#a<MMrt Kershaw'* Add row--Our Fu?
A* Chairman of the Executive Com?
mittee of the late Beform organisation,
General J. B. Kershaw has published
sn oddfo33 to bin political associates.
Tbin address reflects tho fair, candid
and patriotic spirit so characteristic of
the author, and will be received with
great consideration. It contains- the
formal announcement of the dissolution
of the Beform party. It contains the
candid admission that the Beform policy
failed, because of the antagonism of the
negro race against the white race. We
heartily concur with General Kershaw
in bis philosophy of the Beform failure.
We heartily agree with him that there
is no propriety in the white people's
oontinning their efforts in thut line. As
General Kershaw well says: "It is both
wise and just that room should bo made
for other agencies to do the work that
mast be done, in order to save the
perishing State." And ho aorrectly says
that henceforth tho whites of the State
will be found in "solid phalanx, stoady
and determined, ready, willing and pre?
pared to do and to dare all that honor
would sanction, or God approve, to res?
cue their people from min and despair."
General Kershaw, in his addross, roviews
the canvass in this State, gives an analy?
sis of the arguments used pro and con.,
and, in our judgment, rightly interprets
the failure of the Reform movement.
We would, perhaps, havo put the case
somewhat stronger. General Kershaw
attributes the failure of the Beform
movement to the success of tho effort
made to employ against the whites the
antagonism of raoo. This is doubtless
trae. Bat we hold that the causo lies
even deeper than that. Tho Boform
effort sought to reconcile that which ie
irreconcilable-sought to bring togeth?
er on equal political terms that which
God and nature have put asunder. It
demonstrated that the negro was not
willing oven to divide the Government
with the white man, but that just sc
long as he could, he intended to make
the most of his opportunities. Thu:
God in his providence puts tho white
race upon its mettle-and thus let the
matter rest. The issue will be accepted.
The white race must rule the South
must give tone and direction to om
civilization-not by denying to the co
lored race their just rights, but by il
lustrating those qualities that everywhere
ultimately assert the mastery.
Gon. Kershaw closes his address bj
some suggestions as to our future policy
We admit that the views he offers ar?
plausible, but we cannot say that the}
meet our assent. For us quietly to wai
for a conservative growth in the boson
of Radicalism, is, in our judgment, tc
wait until dooms-day. Radical no ns er va
tisui is born of decided, strong, resolute
opposition on our part. Wo want white
self-assertion. We want.our flag raisec
and kept flying. We want our princi
pies boldly proclaimed and resolutely
asserted. We want it understood tba
between us and the present regime ther
is au irrepressible conflict. When the
white people of South Carolina are or
ganizod in their power and in thei
pride-when the policy of a severe SELF
ASSERTION shall be adoptod-linked will
a spirit that is reasonable and just-thei
will there exist a condition favorable ti
that ;onservative growth from which
like Gen. Kershaw, we expect good re
salts, but which we expect to sprinj
from white activity and not white pat
siveness. As for our political associa
tiens, we are clear. As parties HOI
stand, the whites of the Sooth and c
South Carolina must be in accord wit!
tho national Democracy. Nor let u
hesitate boldly to avow that we stan
under that flag, just so long as it cover
oar spirit, our hopes und our interests.
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE IN JACKSONVILLE
FLORIDA.-A very destructive lire oceui

night, 19th instant. Many of the fine;
buildings in tho place wero destroyed
Tho St. John's House was saved by greu
oxertion. From the St. John's Hons
through to tho river is one vast ruin an
waste. The losses aro very severe au

perhaps to the extent of one-half."
Yesterday afternoon the?'o'clock trai
on the North-Eastern Railroad ran int
a toam that was crossing thc track, nt th
forks of the road. Tho horse was kille
outright, and the light wngou to whic
ho was attached smashed to pieces. Tb
driver, who must have been either asl ce
or very deaf, wus seriously injured, an
is not expected to recover.
GIN HOUSE BURNED.-Tho giu hom

and one of Guild's gins, bolonging 1
Messrs. Jeter & Thomson, located on tl
Eastern portion of tho depot lot iu th
town, was destroyed by fire on Fri di
evening lost. The gin was run by a poi

MB. EXHYOB: It doo3 not comport witb
my ideas of propriety, and, I presume,
not with y ou roi o? conven lenco, to cn
gago iq?jft useless newspaper controversy t
with mon that will indulge in m?sropre-j
aentat?bn, as o "Nativo Citizen" has
done with my article over the signature
of "A Democrat," nor with one who
deals in nothing but falsehoods with re?
gard to the same article, as did the Daily
Uni?n, of the 15 th inst. I expected to
stir up much of the filth of the Radical
ranks, for their bread and butter was at
stake if tho Governor aoted at all upon
my suggestions, but supposed it would
be among the old stagers of tho ring,
who bad been so long warring against
the good and well-being of the State, as
to consider it their right to do and say
anything they pleased that would put
the funds of the people deep down into
their pockets; but I confess I was some?
what surprised to see the newly-flodKed
members of the party so soon broke into
the harness. Wish him joy of his suc?
Hereafter I shall pay no attention to
"their dogs of war, lot them slip" as
they will, nor to the yelping of their
"hounds of party" at my heels, but
evenly pursue my way, writing what I
think proper, submitting to the judg?
ment of editors as to whether they tmull
bo published or not. An honest, up?
right Republican, who is pursuing Un?
even tenor of his way, voting for whom
ho pleases, according me an equal right
to my opinions, (almost a nondescript in
South Carolina,) I will tako him by the
hand as my friend if he will bo such,
and bid God-speed, discuss with him
calmly our different opiuions, without
questioning his honesty or integrity, po?
litically or personally; but to tho vile
Radical crew that have, for three or four
yours, been trying their best to produce
discord, strife, and even a war of races,
between tho whites and blacks; who have
persistently been cheating tho Treasury
of the State out of every dollar they
could lay their villainous hands upon;
who havo cheated tho negro out of bis
small earnings; who have opeuly and
daily received bribes to pass laws for our
government, many of which would bo a
disgrace to Hottentots; who do not hesi?
tate to do anything, oven to perjury,
theft and murder, to carry their schemes
into effect-I shall show no mercy, nor
fail to striko them a blow whenever it
comes in my way, whether that blow
will do any real good or not. I do not
nsk one of them to turn Democrats or
Reformers; but I ask them to give us
good government for tho whole people;
to quit their bribery, theft, murder, le?
gislating for ono class against another;
pass an honest, decent election law; in u
word, to become honest men, and I will
try to forgivo their past offences, and
will cortainly, as far as I am concerned,
let them havo peace. This would be a
herculean task on their part, I know, yet
it possibly might bo done with most of
them-at least with some outside help.
I think I already see indications that
tho Governor dares not break from the
cormorant crew by which ho has beeu so
long surrounded. If this is so, I nm
sorry fur ii-, ou his account as well aa
for tho welfare of the people. Wo need
now peculiarly a good government; us it
is, wo can look forward to nothing but
raia and final bankruptcy, unless the
parly opposed to the powers that be can
contrive some pluu to overturn them.
This we should, as good citizens, uso our
utmost exertions to do as soon us possi?
ble, und not desert tho old State, as
some ate doing, in her hour of greatest
need. I bad some hopes that the late
and present counsels of tho Republican,
with the help of the few conservatives
that would assist, would do somo good,
but I am afraid tho tusk is too great for
them to accomplish any real, substantial
chungo. Tho efforts of the Republican
for au honest administratiou of the Go?
vernment aro praisewurthy, aud should
bo susiuined us far as possible; but 1
think he will find it easier to hang scoun?
drels than to reform them, particularly
ufter they havo tasted blood, alias Trea?

There was at oue time a hopo that the
present Legislature would bo au improve?
ment for good upon the lust; but from
all that has thus fur transpired, it is from
bud to worso. Every promiso ruado du?
ring tho canvas has already been falsi?
fied, and the prospect now is fair that tho
devil, with the help of Crews & Co.,
will, for the next two years, perpetrate
all tho iniquity that their ferule brains

THE KINO OF ITALY DELAYS HIS TRI?
UMPHAL ENTRY INTO ROME.-A corres?
pondent writing from Eloronco says that
the King's Ministers bad appointed De?
cember 1st as tho day upon which the
graud entry was to have been, and thu
Italian journals had published the cutiro
programme of tho order of the great
procession, lint when tho King learned
that be was to bu lodged, while in Rome,
in tho Quirinal, ho decidedly rejected
the arrangement. He dreads, it ls said,
tho unger of tho Pope, and will uso
every excuso to put off his entry into
Rome. It is also stated in ibis letter
that u foreign ambassador in Florence
said that, from some remarks his Majes?
ty had made to him during un audience,
ho felt sure that tho King would hail
gladly any foreigu iuterventiou which
would prevent his taking possession of
tho Holy City.

was to bo seeu on the faoe of the ocean i i
where it was before situated. What
makes this occurrence more deplorable,
Bays tho Pall Mall Gazelle, is that Aurora
was ono of the most fertile of tho group
of islands of which it formed a member.

question whether a reward should not

fashion, we shall soon cease to congratu?

There is, however, this cousolation, that
if langland were to disappear like Aurora
Island, there would, no doubt, be a rigid
investigation made into the circum?
stances by the rest of the world. Franco

The WinBton (N. C.) Sentinel tells of
the following two very singular cases of
suddeu death: "Sulathiel liier, a citizen
living iu tho Southern portion of tho
County, was taken sick, and a few days
ago was visited by his neighbor, Alfred
Gnnble. Mr. Gimble was standing by
tho bedside, holding him by the hand.
He asked him how he was getting along.
Hier told him he thought he was going
to die. Gimble remarked that we all
had to die some time. Almost bofore
Ihe sentence was tiuished he dropped
dead, with Hicr's baud clasped iu Ins,
nearly pulling him out of bed. Hier
was so frightened and excited by tho cir?
cumstance thut ho died iu a short, timo.
Wo have boen informed of another sin?
gular occurrence thut took place in our
Couuty a few weeks ago. A Mr. Swice
good, we believo a local preacher, iu the
evening, after ho had uto his supper, iu
apparent good health, asked his wife to
preparo tho bed for him to lie down, as
ho was going to dio directly. She ro
proved him for speaking so. He took
Iiis seat in the porch, and in a ?hort time
asked his wife if tho bed was prepared,
telling her to hurry up as he had only a
few minutes to live. Hu thou laid duwu
and died immediately."
