Saturday aLomin*, February 18.1871.
We can no longer doubt tho Radical
party aa being of "enlarged ideas,"
when we ?nd its leaders gravely advocat?
ing continental unification, or the exten?
sion of oar territory from the North to
the Isthmus of Suez, and from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. Tho idea of
embracing all the entire continent under
ono government may well be designated
as "enlarged"-enlavgod out of the
realms of possibility and common sense.
The Radical party, in it? bigoted pre*
sumption, is the only organization we
ever heard or read of, whioh attempted
to fight nature and her laws-a contest
as hopeless as it is absurd. Where any
marked difference exists in climate, soil,
productiveness and race, corresponding
differences must exist in habits and cus?
toms, and upon the latter all govern?
ments are reared. It is the old story of
the Tower of Babel over again, and, like
it, doomed to result in disaster to the
By far the most cheering siga of our
future prosperity lies iu the fact that the
censas demonstrates a rapid increase of
population in the late slaveholdicg sec?
tion. Notwithstanding the devastation
left by the war, it shows an increase of
1,500,000 of population over the census
of I860. These facts demonstrate the
existence of a constant tide of emigra?
tion from the North and North-west into
the cotton and sugar producing States.
If Congress and the Administration, in?
stead of throwing obstacles in tho way
of their farther recuperation, would
wisely determine to assist them, the
great benefit resulting to the whole coun?
try by a vast increase of our productive
wealth weald more than ten-fold repay
tho outlay. The suicidal policy which
prevents tbe opening and protection of
every available avenue of commerce,
cannot be justified upon other grounds
than that of stupidity or insanity.
It appears that America has its Joan
D'Arc aa well as France, although only
discovered through the unromantic
agency of a Congressional appropriation.
Miss Anna Ella Carroll; of Maryland, is
the fair warrior, who has just received
au appropriation o' $5,000 for planning
the Tennessee River expedition, which
resulted so disastrously to the Confede?
rate cause. Col. Thomas A. Scott states
that, in 1861, Miss Carroll culled on him
as Assistant Secretary of War, and sug?
gested the propriety of abandoning thu
expedition whioh was then preparing to
descend the Mississippi River, and adopt,
instead, the Tennessee River, and hand?
ed to him the plan of a campaign, which
plan he submitted to the Secretary of
War, and its general ideas were adopted.
Where, ba your generals now? Aud to
whom is the glory of conquering the re?
bellion mainly due? Not to Grant,
Sherman or Thomas, surely, but to Miss
Anna Ella Carroll, who deserves to be
immediately elected permanent Secreta?
ry of War and Generalissimiss of the
Armies of the United States, instead of
being foisted off with a paltry $5,000.
Dook to it, Susan Anthony! Invoke
your thaoders, Mrs. Stanton! The pri?
vileges of the sex must be vindicated.

Mit. EDITOR: A few facts iu the his?
tory of Turkish baths in New York may
be of interest to those of your readers
who are interested in tho cause of public
health. To every thinking miud tho
importance of this form of bath, espe?
cially in a Southern climate, must bc ap?
parent. Yet I am not aware that any
efforts have been made to introduce it
in the South at all.
The first Turkish bath established iu
America was in New York-or rather
Brooklyn-by Dr. ChaB. H. Shepard, of
81 Columbia Heights, Brooklyn, in 1863.
He began in May of that year, but it
was not till October that he advertised
his establishment as open to the public.
Bathers came in slowly at first-ono or
two a week; then more, and more. Dr.
Shepard's recently published report gives
his progress in these words: "Tho first
month we gave about fifty baths, the se?
cond 100, the third over 150, the fourth
nearly 200-thus gaiuiug ground by slow
degrees. The first year we gave over
2,000 baths, the second year about 4,000,
the third nearly 6,000. About the mid?
dle of the fourth year we increased our
facilities, by constructing a much hu ger
bath for gentlemen exclusively, and giv?
ing tho first one constructed entirely to
the use of the ladies. Duriug this year
we gave over 10,000 baths; the fifth year
Tho prico for a bath is about SI-de?
pending upon the number of tickets
bought at a time-and was until recently
a good deal higher.
Might nota small establishment of the
kind succeed iu Columbia? Ono such,
for the coming summer, would bc a
blessing to our community. Nothing
elso approaches tho Turkish bath in re?
viving and restoring the exhausted ener?
gies of ono who is fagged with the se?
vere tax upon health so commou with us
late in our interminable summers.
PUBLIC MEETING AT CLAY HILL.-Wo
publish this week the procoediugs of u
public meeting held at Clay Hill, in this
County, on Saturday last, participated in
by both blacks and whites. Tho meet?
ing was called without any formal notice,
us is usual in such cases, but solely ut the
solicitation of the eolored citizens of
that part of tho County, who, in view of
the disturbances that have recently oc?
curred, having unsuccessfully appealed
to tho white leaders of the Union League
organization for counsel and advice in
the premises, desired a general meeting
of the citizens in which, as the proceed?
ings show, all acts of violence were
heartily condemned. This is well
enough, so far as it goes; but mero pre?
ambles and resolutions are impotent to
restore order. The cause of the troubles
must first be removed.
As will be seen by a note appended to
the proceedings, the opinion was ex?
pressed that so long as the Union
League organization was kept up, there
was a probability that disorderly acts
would ensue, when members of the
League, who were present, pledged
themselves to hold no more secret poli?
tical meetings at night. By far the best
policy for the members of tho League to
pursue, wa think, would be to disband
their society entirely. So long as they
keep up a secret organization of the
character of that of the League, it is
probable that ju6t so long will a counter
organization exist, and each will alike be
productivo of harm. The conduct of
the colored people in respect to their
connection with this secret political or?
ganization has bad much to do with pro?
ducing tho present state of affairs; and
wo are fully pnrsnaded that the best
means they could adopt to get rid of the
"Ku Klux" danger would bo to disband
their own secret organization, and there?
by remove the pretext for oueiu opposi?
tion to it. - Yorke Me Enquirer.
POSSIBLE COLLISION WITH TUL: TEN?

safety, may throw some light upon her
"It will bo remembered that on the

that this steamer was the Cuba, but the
Cuba is a brig-rigged steamer, aud the
placo of her collision with the brig with
which she came in contact, was from
sixty to ninety miles West, or closer in
than where tho Dunbar reports her col?

rigged steamer, and it may bo, therefore,
that she was the steamer which carno in

THE ANDERSON MILITIA.-The recent
action of the Anderson militia company,
proposing to box and deposit their arms,
is an example which all tho other com?
panies in the State might follow, with
advantage to all parties. That the arm?
ing of tho colored population is the
great source of the present troubles and
the mischief constantly transpiring in
tho State, there eau be no doubt; and
we firmly believe if the colored militia
would voluntarily deliver their guns
to the proper custodian, or if tho au?
thorities would disarm tho militia, much
would thereby be accomplished to re?
store order and good feeling between tho
races. - York rille Enquirer.
Tn? RADICALS WITHOUT A LEADER.-A
correspondent of the Brooklyn Union
understood to be a-distinguished literary
gentleman from the West, now on % Visit !
to the Cnpitnl-has elicited from "a very
sagacious member of the House of Rep?
resentatives" tho following opinions: |
1. We have had no - leader since old I
Thud. Stevens die?!.
2. Butler is a noisy man, unsent pu- i
Ions, cuuniug, infinite iu resources, of
unabashed front, and as fond of noto?
riety as a toper is of his cups. No one
eau deny that lie has brains-just as
good bruius as eau be had without a eon
scieuce; but he does not lead us.
3. Mr. Dawes is a strong man in the
House-strong by his long membership
and the prestige of groat experience,
und by his industry, and by the credit
he enjoys of being an houest man. He
is not a great mau; no ono ever accused
him of that; but his opinion on many
subjects is really of great weight with
us. And yet Iiis opinion would be more
valuable if ho was more economical
with it. He bestows it too lavishly. In
short, be talks too much.
4. Bunks has the carriage, the dashing
presence of uu uncommon man. He
often looks as if he knew moro than he
would willingly tell. Iudeed, I nm
sometimes reminded of what Fox said to
Lord Thurlow: JSo man ever was so wise
as Thurlow looks. Banks bas a magnifi?
cent voice, aud on the whole, he is the
most brilliant orator on the floor. But
oratory-who cares for oratory auy
more? Legislation is committee work,
and the tino orator is now but a carpet
knight. Banks is a m in whose glory is
in the past.
0 Garfield lus on his side youth,
splendid health, learniug, high spirits,
great power of application and good
habits. Garfield may feel happy whether
he looks either way-iuto the past or
into the future.
These opinions certainly have the
benefit of great positiveness aud frank?
ness iu their expression.
Tin-: FnENcn ELECTIONS.-The Cour?
rier d>:? Etats Unis, tho leadiug French
journal of America, of February 13, ex?
presses the following sentiment in re?
spect to tho recent elections in France:
Tho news which comes from Frauce,
says this paper, is extremely vague as to
what transpired ou election day. Along
with certain names, essentially Republi?
can, the despatches give us tho names of
others, which are spoken of as repre?
senting the conserv?t i re element, which is
spoken of asjbeiug the strongest. This
is the moderate party, otherwise called
tho liberal uuiou. These terms are
somewhat confused and require explana?
In tho actual situation, and essentially
transitory aa it is, we seo nothing that is
to be preserved except the Republican
principle, and we hope that will triumph.
But if that old conservative party, which
runs buck into the old routine, to ancient
formulas, both as to policy and admini?
stration-if that is to lead the way,
there will be a reaction, and the past will
have co3t us dear enough, seeing that its
lessons and experience must all be left
behind. There are two extremes that
Franco should avoid at any price; ono is
that of Utopians who would destroy every?
thing; tho other is that of the headlong,
who would restore everything. Between
the two there is a middle route, into
which, we believe, two intermediary
parties will bo found ranged, one of
which is the Orleanist, the other the Re?
The editor then says: As we have said
a hu ml red times, the republic has un?
dergone hard trials, and, notwithstand?
ing its defeat, it has covered itself with
honor. Frauce will create- for herself
new dangers in refusing to sustain the
The Orleanists represent, it is true, a
certain current of opinions which are
progressive, and sj'mpathize with public
sentiment; but this current is nothing
moro than transitory. This must be?
come stronger and better, because, if it
should not, the friends of that party will
bo alternated. To this public sympathy
it (the Orleans party) owes what strength
EXTENSIVE ROBBERY.-For certain rea?
sons uot necessary now to state, we post?
poned giving publicity to a daring mid
extensive robbery of watches and other
jewelry, committed on Tuesday of last
week, from the store of our townsman,
Mr. lt. W. Tiusley, by one John Griffin,
who had been employed for some time
as a jeweler in tho i;tore. Mr. Tinsley
had the eveniug previous gone out on a
bird hunt, and left Gri?iu, as he had
often done before, in charge of the busi?
ness. It appears soon after Mr. T. left,
Griifiu commenced packing into his
trunk nil tho watches and other valua?
bles, including some jeweler's tools.
Ho must have worked nearly all night,
and in tho morning took the cars for
Columbia. Ho took about forty-five
watches, many of them gold and a num?
ber of new silver ones, which Mr. T. had
lately received on commission. Mr. T.
estimates his loss at not less than $2,700.
Griffin is about twenty-five years old,
dark, curly hair, pleasant countenance,
about five feet eight or ten inches high,
sparo mado and genteel manners. He
was last seen in Columbia, on Thursday
morning following the robbery.
