eontaius the valedictory of its late editor,
B. R. Stuart, Esq. Mr. Stuart an?
nounces that ho has taken oharga of a
school at Summerville, near Augusta,
Ga. We regret that South Carolina has
thus loBt the services-editorial and edu?
cational- of this devoted Carolinian.
Mr. Stuart is au earnost and able teach?
er, and nu an editor has shown himself
an original thinker and a bold, inde?
pendent writer. Thoroughly devoted,
os Mr. Stuart is, to the interests of South
Carolina, nnd in sympathy with all that j
is noblo in her past and promising in
her future, wo hope ere long to find him
oallod back to his cativs State, to fill
some useful station in the line of his
high calling and largo experience. In
tho meantime, we bid him God-speed,
and commend him to the appreciation of
gallant and progressive Georgia.

King Amadeus, or his advisers, have
at last reversed ri policy whiah has too
long shaped the course of tho rulers of
Spain. Tired of the prolonged rulo of
punishment and repression which has
been mercilessly enforced for so many
years, the Savoyard King has issued a
decree of amnesty to all political offend?
ers in Spain. This wholesale and well
timed act of olomenoy canuot fail but
render the foreign monaroh more popu- j
lar than he has hitherto been with his
subjects. While he is merciful, the
King is also fearless, bidding plotters
and conspirators, Bourbons, Carlista,
Republicana, all go free. He tells them
that the Government is aware of tho
weakness of its adversaries, und con
euious of its own strength to crush all
revolts. This cannot be regarded as an
idle boast, for Amadeus has let loose, on
his yet unstable realm, the very men
who desire to destroy his power, and
they will deprive him of his throne if he
is weak or vacillating.
FRENCH REPUBLICANISM.-The reoent
proceedings of the Frenoh Assembly
are anything but cheering to the friends
of free government in France. Dissa?
tisfaction and distrust exist on every
side. Theirs hos a powerful opposition.
The minority, whiah is large, are fierce
in their opposition, and yield with evi?
dent reluctance when a distasteful mea
Burc is forced upon them. Indeed, there
seems to bo but one bond of cohesion in
that body-the fear of Germau interpo?
sition in case of any disturbance of the
present Government. The fear of Gor?
man bayonets is evidently the only basis
upon which the present Government
rests. It has no nnohorage in the nfico
tious of the people. Nor does the As?
sembly appear to have any more respect
for the people than they have for it.
Taking advantage of tho popular weak?
ness, tho former have not scrupled to
assume to themselves what is called
"constituent power," whioh means pow?
er to form a permanent government
which should be binding upon the peo?
ple, whether they will it to be so or not.
This is Republicanism with a vengeance!
No doubt, .suggests the Sa vim nab Re?
publican, it is borrowed from our own
admirable system, whore popular supre?
macy exists only in name, and the idea
is laughed at by tho purso-proud auto?

Ku KLUX TAKEN IN TUB ACT.-Tho
telegraph has already reported the cap?
ture of certain Ku Klux in North Caro?
lina by Deputy United States Marshal
Hester, who marched at their bead into
Raleigh with a cow-hide in hand, while
a party of colored men, wearing the cap?
tured disguises, brought up the rear of
the procession. The accused wore
bound over on the oath of a negress
brothel-keeper for trial. The Lumber
ton (N. C.) Robesonvm now claims to
have proof that Deputy Marshal Hester
procured the disguises to be manufac?
tured; that ho camped near Jbnesboro,
and had the disguises in his wagon; that
he claimed to be a member of the Klan,
and endeavored to induce varions men
and lads to join; that, finally, he pre?
vailed on Bovoral yoting men to go with
kim to his camp to be initiated; they did
so, put on the disguises in pursuance of
his instructions, and were immediately
arrested by Hester and his band of oo
lored accomplices. The Robesonian in?
sists that completo proof of the con?
spiracy has been obtained.
AFFLICTED LocAiirrisa.-We are in?

J. Reaves, who lives about four miles

Waccamaw, has also lost three of his
ohildren this week. Mr. Arthur Hardee,
of the same neighborhood, died this

Since my last lotter, a number of iu
quiries have been made, by many of
your roaders, in different portions of the
State, relative to the healing effects of
the waters of this spring, and tir? various
diseases which have been cured. We
hasten to oomply with thoso requests,
and prosent herewith an analysis of tho
water: It is a strong sulphurous water;
one wine quart contains six oubio inches
of sulphurated hydrogen gftB. Specific
gravity, 1.001. It is clear and colorless.
Tasto, nauseous. Its solid oontonts aro:
Sulphate of Magnesia, 21 grains; Sul?
phate of Soda, 10 grains; Sulphate of
Limo, 5 grains; Muriato of Lime, 4
grains; Supor Carbonant of Soda, 3
grains. Also traeos of Phosphate of
Magnesia and Carbonate of Limo. It
muy be that this water contains other in?
gredients not deteoted by tho analysis
already made, and especially gases,
which, from the rapidity with which
they escapo, aro most difficult of detec?
tion. Thoro is every roason to induoo
tho opiuion that they co?tai u a consider?
able quantity of Carbonic Acid gas.
Should this prove to bo the fuct, the
vidueof the water would be considerably
Diseases of almost every oharaoter, ex?
cepting pulmonary complaints, have
been permanently eradicated from the
system by the constant use of tho waters,
for one or two months. As will be ob?
served, by the above ingredients, the
waters possess un alterative power, which
gradjally removes tho disease, by acting
freely upon all the secretions, and re?
storing a healthy tone to tho entire sys?
tem. In all bilious complaints they are
peculiarly beneficent, and many of the
worst coses of jaundice have been speed?
ily cured. lu chronic diarrhoea they
also prove a certain oure, if their uso is
persovcred in. For ladies, thoir use has
always been found highly advantageous,
and many wonderful oures aud results
The late Dr. Fair, of your city, was a
most ardent believer in and advocate of
the excellent effects of these waters, and
used to sand his patients hero every sea?
son to be cured, as many of your read?
ers can attest. Other physicians, who
are not so familiar with their effects,
would do well to make themselves ac?
quainted with them, either by actual
triul themselves, or by sending some of
their patients here, as thoy may bo able
thereby to aid in the relief of much suf?
fering, after all other remedios havo
failed. Tho season has not yet advanced
too far this your to enublo all who desire
to give this spring a fair trial before

CHEEMNU NEW3 ABOUT THE FEVER.
Tho public will learn, with satisfaction,
that wo have boon notified by Dr. Lob?
by, tho oity registrar, that ho will make
an offioiul report, every afternoon, of the
number of deaths by yellow fever certi?
fied to him during the twenty-four hours
ending at mid-day. This will place be?
fore the community, os frequently as
oonld be desired, a trustworthy state?
ment of tho mortality in the oity. The
people will know the whole truth, good
or bad, and we may look forward to a
sudden falling off in the crop of ru?
mora, and to a steady improvement in
the public morale. Altogether the oity
has been rather cheerful in tone during
the past two days, and the bulletins will
tend to strengthen confidence ?u? diapel

only throe deaths.]
These reports, and the total mortality

ABOUT TO SPUING.-The telegram in
our yesterday's paper showed thot the
tiger of thu Government was preparing
to spring at South Carolina. That poor
State-the object of the sympathy and
commiseration of every intelligent and
considerate person-a monument of mis?
government and persecution-is to be
struck nt to inspire the "wholesome,
alarm" spoken of by Radicals through?
out the South. That is, to AU the South?
ern publio mind with dismay and restrain
the Southern people from opposition to
tho war party now in power.
I Murtial law is to be declared iu cer?
tain districts. What do those who de?
clared thut the Ku Klux law gave no
suoh powor to the President say to that?
Tho chairman of tbe Committee to In?
vestigate "Southern Outrages" suggests
to tho President the propriety of this
mensuro. Ho understands what is au?
thorized by tho Ku Klux law, and so
does Genet id Graut, not that he is a law?
yer, hut that he knows what powers he
asked Congress to give him, und that
I was ono of them.
Poor South Curoliun! Her case can?
not be made mach worse. She would
hu glad to ho remanded to the territorial
condition; and Congress has as much
right to remand her to this condition us
it had to puss tho Ku Klux law, under
which the President proposes uowto act.
The Territorial government would bo iu
tiuitely preferable to thu rule of barbar?
ism. lb is far more necessary that that
wretohed Statu should be put uuder Ter?
ritorial government than it was that tho
District of Oolumbia should be. The
Radical party in Congress discovered
that with tho negro power in that Dis?
trict there could bo no pence nor rest
without n ohange of government, aud
they did not hesitate to make the
chango. But South Carolina is not to
re?oive the bouellt of any considerate
mensuro of Radicalism. She is reserved
for penalties and punishments-tu bo ex?
posed daily in her humiliation and to
receive her allotted stripes-to show the
power of tho victor and to Htrike terror
through the lund.
Well, this roloutless war party cannot
rule alway?-nor, let us all devoutly
trust, will it be permitted to rule the
country moro thuu for ii brief period.
For the sake of the country, and Immu?
nity, its days should be soon ended.
MARTIAL LAW IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
The idea of murtial law for uuy portion
of South Carolina is, in our judgment,
so partisan aud uncalled for in its cha?
racter as to demand tho sevorest rebuke
and ceusuro. Wo had hoped the time
had arrived wheu tho peuce, happiness
uud welfuro of communities and State;
would no longer depend upou either thc
caprices or interests of a mere party,
but would have a solid basis for theil
security in tbe returning common souse
and patriotism of the people.
The course of the war which has been
waged by tho Rudical party, both in aud
out of Congress, by Congressional enact?
ments and upon the stump, has prevent
ed the punco for which the vital inter
esta of the wholo country yearn, and
which, hut for this course, might nut!
.should li uve been attained long ago.
Six years of agitatiou, siuce the couflicl
of urms on the battle-hold has ceased,
should certainly suffice for dissension!
and measures of wrong and severance,
without now again attempting to perpo
tirite this sud history by tho proclama
lion of martial law. Thu whole last
sighs for rest, aud a return to self-go
verument and the accustomed civil nd
ministration of the laws. In this State
if properly exorcised, the civil arm o
tho Government is ample for the protec
tion of life, liberty aud property. Tin
grout difficulty hus boen, that tho Radi
cul party of the country does uot desiri
that peuce should bo preserved in tim
nay. It is not for tho interests of theil
party. It puts au end to their wild ox
uggeratious, and to that capital iu iradi
by which thoy alone hopo to preservi
their arbitrary powor and continuo t<
mislead tho public judgment.
In South Carolina, nil of the depart
menta of the Government uro lurgol;
Republican. Tho Executive, Legisla
ti ve und judicial departments aro in thei
entiro control. Tu say that lliesa un
not sutlioicut for the administration o
justice, is at ouce to confess their iucom
potence and efficiency. It amounis ti
an acknowledgment of the utter faillir
of Radical rule, and ita inability eitbe
for domestic peace or security. Tili
most bethe broud coufession upou whicl
any idea of martial law will rest.
Tho Washington Republican has quit
a sensational article under the heui
"Martial Law to be Proclaimed in Spin
tauburg and York Counties, South Cn
roll na." This action, it is said, is argo
by Seuator Scott, the Chairman of th
Joint Congressional Committee, wilie
visited this State, and who claims tho
President Grant should issue a prods
mation and station military forces i
these Countios, to ensure thu exectitio
of all orders.
IQ this recommendation, we do ut
understand all the committee as conoui
ring. In fuot, we do not know that an
of tho committee have concurred in th:
course. Some of them, by the improi
nions which they have published, oei
tainly dissent. They disoredit, as non
liable and partisan, the larger part c
the testimony whioh was tuken befor
the committee iu South Carolina as ev
dently given for partisan purposes, an
from partisan motives.
What is wanted in South Carolina is
thoroughly honest and eoonomioal ac
ministration of its internal affairs, who)
right will be respeoted and tho publi
welfare rogarded. This is the true wn
to concord. There have boen a fe
cases of individual violence. Thesi
nntil human nature is changed, dav
boon in tho main tho reaction from wron
and misrule. They have arisen from
want of protection on tho part of tl
authorities, as against incompetency an
corrnption in offico.
This martial law cannot romody,
does not secure or restore; it ouly tl
prives of Bolf-government. Wo trust
President Grant will have the Btatemau
ahip to resist these demands, mid with
the proper exertiou of the State Govern?
ment and tho redress of internal wrongs,
there will bo peaoe in this stricken State.

THB NEXT PRESIDENTIAL EJECTION
ITS IMPOIITAKOE.-The destinies of this
continent, politically, will be settled by
tho result of the next Presidontiul elec?
tion. If the Badical party succeed in
electing Grant, wo Bhall bid u loug fore
well to constitutional liberty und wel?
come) tho advent of tho empire resting
on the caprice of the Badical mob, em?
bodying the impure, vicious aud malig
aaat in morals, the dishonest, unscrupu?
lous, hateful and corrupt in politics, a
faction, of which B. F. Butler rcpro
Hunts tho highest development, thc whole
constituting essentially "a vulgar tyran?
ny." There is not a respectable South
urn paper that docs not believe as wo do,
that this is tho issue presented in thc
approaching oleoliou. How, then, can
wu account for the declaration which we
moot with in some quarters, to tho effect
that tho issues involved in national poli?
tics aro of greatly less importunen to us
than questions of State polity? What
they mean who advance this assertion
wu do not precisely uudorstaod, except
tliut they seem inclined to dodge a con?
test with tho Republican purty next
your, by some sort of local compromiso
with that party or some of its members,
whereby certain advantages, or supposed
advantages, to tho people of South Ca?
rolina may rosult. Wo do not know
what they propose, but of this wc are
very euro, that no such odvmtuges eau
result from any compromiao with th?
compromising ring of thc Badical party
of South Carolina as now developed,
which could compensate our people for
tho loss they must sustain by a separa?
tion, at u crisis liko the prosont, from the
only constitutional party left iu America.
A party which tramples under foot the
constitutions, State uud Federal, and as?
sumes thc creation and punishment of
crimes within the States at the will of
tho Congress, and iuvests thc President
with the power to trample out the civil
law under the armed heel of his soldiery,
at bis solo discretion, cuu make no terms
of compromiso that can socuro anythiug
to anybody. We are, therefore, not
favorable to auy compromise looking to
tho abandonment of our post io tho
ruuks of thc Democratic party, at a time
when tho salvation of thc liberties of the
country is at stake. There aro compro?
mises to which wo would give our hearty
support, but nono that Budioulism could
oller could tempt us to jeopardize, in tho
least possible degree, thu triumph of the
party of the Consiituliou in tho next
election. Let tho peoplo bowaro of any
compromise with those Badieals who
make politics a trade, for, in our judg?
ment, we are sure to bo worsted in the
trude. Questions at issue between tho
races may be, and ought to bo, made the
basis of compromise between us aud tho
well-disposed colored people, but they
do uot involve tho aaoriliee of our posi?
tion upon questions of general polities.
Tho Detroit Free Press, which bas a
rare knack of sharpening nails aud driv?
ing them into tho coffiu of the Badical
party and its representative, General
Graut, with hurd aud efficient blows,
says: "If Presideut Grant will uso the
army to secure a nomination, bo will usc
it to secure an election. Them is no
doubtiug the fact. The Ku Klux bill
was passed in order to givo him an ex?
cuse for such an act of usurpation. It
will be no fault of Grant's if he is not
elected, providing force will re-elect bim.
Tho peoplo have roached that point in
this political history when it will devolve
upon thom to decido whether they will
in tho futuro be ruled by ballots or bul?
lets. This question is already forcing
itself upon their attention, und it must
bo mot and decided. It is one more
grnvo than over beforo submitted to
them, and one which will demand moro
?rmocss of action in behalf of right."

of nu unknown colored man, which lay

it was examined, a wound similar to otic

Her family-the mother au ? two young?

grief that refuses to bo comforted, and

son of a Patterson alderman-yesterday,
deliberately committed suicide. Whether
be is tho ono who ruined Alice and
brought hor to such a miserublo onding

name of another geutleinan friend of
Alice's-ono Tripp-is meutioned iu
connection with tho woe that befell ber;
but he bas disappeared, and his where?
abouts is not known. The inquoist of
to-day will doubtless divulge all the facts
iu tbe matter, and present a nnrrative so
much moro strange than any conceivable
tiction tbat it ought to provo an ever pre?
sent warning against the commissiou ol
tho ono crime thut carries such terrible
woo in its wake. Thoro can bo but one
verdict reudered. Alice Bowlesby came to
her death by cruel malpractice at the
hands cf Dr. Aecher, alias Dr. Roseu

tiupplied to completo the legal chitin of

in tho minds of all the people of this
