Gfatrier-Journal considers it very "signi
fioant that the Republicans ore bringing
all their gana to bear ou what they are
pleased to stylo 'the now departure.'
Th? New York Tribune, the leader of the
Republican press, employs a correspond?
ent. at s hau Jeomo salary, to interview
every oonBpioaous hot-head in the South,
that nia insana babbling may be tnrned
to account, and every dilly utterance of
obscura and uoiofiuential publications
that are hanging to the. skirts of the
Demnoratio party ia copied by Repobli
oan journals and magnified into an ex
pression of public opinion. Everything
that'can bo tortured into a semblanoo of
opposition to the Constitutional amend?
ments ia heralded in capitals in Republi?
cen newspapers and doon monts, and not
one word ia loat upon their gullible isad?
ora." Tho facts abo YO stated admonish
os of the importance of observing a dis?
creet propriety in all of oar utterances,
if we wish well to oar allies at the North
and to ourselves-. "With proper manage?
ment on the part of tho Democratic
party, and a wise reticence on the part of
those Southern journals and politicians
Shat are naturally in sympathy with it,
there will be hardly tho ghost of a

city. The Pope waa to have boon killed
on tho 19th of that month, as be MOB
proceeding along ono of the corridors of

Sistine Chapel. Attention was first
drawn to tho plot through a wager laid
against tho duration of tho Pope's life,
aud visits of numerous suspicions charac?

seeing membors of the household. A

to have arrived in Borne. Foreigners'.of

COLOMBIA FEMALE COLLEGE.- The
cunniug rumor that this institution.is to
be sold in September, ia without autho?
rity, and we opine, without a good mo?
tive. We bad hoped to hear, ero this,
of something definite on the part of the
Trastees, who were empowered at the
last Conference to open, if practicable,
tho institution for education as soon
after the expiration of tbe present lease
au might be found practicable. Those
who have the matter in band will not,
we hope, suffer the rumoring and ma
nconvering of auy person outside or
inside, who pretend to be friendly to the
opening of the college, to baflto them in
the prompt and prudent execution of tho
trust placed in their bands.

TUE JULY COURT.-Owing to our Jury
Commissioner having not been con?
firmed by tho Senate, the juries drawn
are illegal. No case can, in consequence,
bo tried at tho court to be held next
week in which a jury is necessary. None
summoned as grand or petit jurors need
attend. Nor need any party or witness
in any criminal case come to the eourt.
The foregoing may bo relied on as au?
thoritative. If tho Governor does not
convene the Senate in extra session, wo
can have no juries until March term,

quent address, by Attorney-General
Coamberlain-which exhibited great
dopth of thought and careful study of
his subject. Senator Scott, of Pennsyl?
vania, (of tho Kn Klux Committee,)
gave the colored people some excellent
advice; telling them, among other things,
that tho right of suffrage which had
been bestowed on them, was merely ac
experiment, aud it might be taken from
them, if not properly used. Representa?

sary music. A rnin storm disturbed the
proceedings, but tho listeners protected
themselves ns well os possible, and stuck

that there was aome excellent playing.

for the colored folks, was tho "lavis!

NEW BOOKS, OF LOCAL INTEBEST. -Wa,
learn that Prof. LaBorde proposes, to : .
publish a Recom? edition of the HISTOBT.
OF THE SOUTH GAROMNA COKLEOB. Oar, *
readers are aware of tbe interest with
which ibo first edition was received. - .'
This edition closed with the year 1857:'
The second will bring the history of tho -
college down to December, 1BG5? when
the Act was passed establishing tbe.ani*
varsity. We learn tbat the new edition
will hnve increased interest imparted to
it, not only because it will constitute a
complote history of the college, but for
tbo further reason that it will contain
several new sketches and additions *
to the sketches of those Presidents
and Professors who havo died since the
appearance of the work. It will be em?
bellished by portraits ot the Presidents
of the college. The volume will contain
about 500 pages octavo, and will ba fur?
nished at $3 per oopy. Subscription
lists may be found at the bookstores.
We deem it unnecessary to add anything
to the notice thus given. Prof, -
LaBordo's well-known fitness for the
congenial work he has undertaken, and
the work itself, will sufficiently commend
the enterprise. The friends and gradu?
ates of tho South Carolina. College,
throughout ho State, and the South, will, :
no doubt, be pleased to avail thenvBelvts
of this opportunity to secure a valuable
biok. '.iii Hi
The other volume io which we desire
to refer, and which will be published aa
Boon as a sufficient number of subscrip?
tions have been received, is- Mr. II. C.
Mack's work, entitled: DEAD ISSUES AND
LIVING RESULTS ? SHERMAN'S M AB OH'
THROCOH' SOUTH CABOLTNA. ! Of cours?;
such a work will ba .read with great in?
terest; especially in thia State. A num?
ber of our citizens' have already sob- '
scribed, and Dr. Di H. Trez?vaht, wb.0 ,
has taken., m nob interest in this work, ;
will receive any additional .norries that
may be offered. From the prosp?etus
which we have examin?e], we' conclude';
that Mr. Mack's volume will be a vain- '
able contribution to history.
