Mtr City Affairs Agala s fi? Agals.
Wo trust that the citizens of Columbia
will not forget the develop monte made in
these colamne with regard to oar city
affairs. What is doing? What has tho
committee of the Board of Trade) (done?
.What are the lawyers doing? Wo hope
they are at work. The session of tho
T^egTMiainre approacher ' The City
Council of Columbia have BOOKOtly and
illegally issued $250,000 seven per cont,
bonds?' By virtue of' a remarkable'
financia1 arrangement On the part of
Alderman Wigg, these bonds are in the
bands of Comptroller-General Neagle,
who i has engaged to ad van oe $75,000
?poa certain terms and conditions.
Are, Messrs. Neagle and Wigg, and the
City Council now waiting to get the
chalice to have their proceedings legal?
ized by the Legislature? Let ns remem?
ber with whom we are dealing.
"For ways that aro dark and tricks that ar?
Tho heathen Chinee is poouliar." -
Again: Has it been forgotten how we
suggested, if wo did not dem?nstrate,
the frauds and collusions praotioed in
connection with the commet awards?
Will oar citizens quietly submit to out?
rage and robbery at the banda of the
city government? Are they going to
sleep upon their rights? Heaven help
them if they . intend thus to act. We
hope for better things.

Was well illustrated during the late State
Tuir. In spite Of all the discourage?
ments, resulting from yellow fever iu
Charleston and military law in the up?
country, the fair was a decided success,
as well: in point of numbers as in the
contributions. Even from tho Counties,
under military rule came visitors and
articles for exhibition. The programme
for the week was regularly carried put.
We noticed that there was an air. of re?
serve opon1 the men and women alike.
We felt, that even the busy scenes of the
fair could .not drive away from the minds
of tho visitors the reflections resulting
from the outr?g?s and the loss inflicted
?pon oar State. But there was, never?
theless, an air, also, of calm endurance
and stern resolve imprinted npon many
faces. The work of the week* was done
and well done. We are proud of the re?
solta. Nor need we despair. A country
possessing each a climate, snob a soil,
such natnral advantages, such men and
suoh wemen as we have, suob a State
cannot bo put down. The iron heel is
upon us now. Thieves aud awiudlers
are having it mnoh their own way. But
this cannot long last. Only let ns keep
our heade ereot and our knees stiff-only
let IIB work aud work-aud it will be
well. The government of South Caroli?
na must return to the sons of the soil
to intelligence and virtue-and then we
shall have peace and prosperity alike for
all dusses. Heaven hasten the day.
Eminent Counae 1 Eupiu*<1.
We learn that the ex-United States At
toruey-Qeueral, Mr. Stansbury, of Ohio,
and the Hon. Reverdy Johnson, of Bal?
timore, have been engaged to defend the
men to be tried under the Ku Klux Act
of Congress at the approaching session
ot the United States Court, to be held
in this oity. It will bo necessary to raise
a sum of money to ourry thia project out,
and it is hoped that oaoh County in this
State will make a contribution. The
object is to BOO that ample justice may
be secured for tho prisoners in arrest,
and that the constitutionality of the Ku
Klux proceedings may be called into
question. The s?beme meets our hearty
approval, and we commend it to all those
able and willing to help. Let us see to
it that the great writs of personal liberty
shall be vindicated before the legal tri?
bunals of the country, and let us see,
farther, that the humblest citizen of the
State, white or black, shall have all the
advice and assistance that able counsel
.an give at a time when party prejudices
and party venom are pursuing our peo?
ple even into the United States Courts.
We have no apology for those prisoners
guilty of crime, but we repeat it that at
this time South Carolina needs defence
and vindication in tho press and in the
forum. Messrs. Stansbury and Johnson
will, no doubt, do ali in their power to
see that the case of the prisoners is fully
and ably presented.

GOOD-BYE TO THE FEVEK.-It is agreed
on all sides that tho yellow fever iu
Charleston is on its last legs. The cool,
bracing weather is killing the germs of
disease, no new cases are heard of, and
the whole city is growing cheerfully
bright. Some leading physioiaos have
advised their patients that they may
safely come baok to Charleston, aud,
every day, a largo number of refugees
return thankfully tp their homes.

When the Union preaches on the "re?

The Union asks a question in its effort
to fasten upon the Democratic press the
responsibility for its own vile work and
the work of its associ?tes in you o m and
misrepresentations. It says:

Now, although the Union subsequently |

If, now, the Union were either weak

bas asked a question. We shall answer
it for tbose iu favor of law and order in

not kuow or care what the people of this

know what they would do in the ouse
made by the Union. ."If there should
be a raid made upon the jail in this city,

is the Union's hypothesis-then there
are men enough in this city to see to it
that the raiders are dealt with, and that
the author of this suggestion shall be
the first to Huffer. Let the editor of the
Union now anderstand that he is held by
the United States soldiers on guard and?
by the publio a hostage for the safety of

Though he comes among ns now for the

who served with him in' the heroio army

closely by those strong ties which only a
companionship in common hardships,
common dangers and common glories
can forgo. We knew him as a tried sol?

ably he has vindicated with his pen in

"An Kv ll la (tl? Camp."
MESSRS. EDITOUS: There eau be no
donbt that the cause of all the troubles
in this State, und other Southern States,
are directly attributable to the recon?
struction Acts of Congress. Ko Bane
mind will, for a motneut, doubt the
truth of this. And so assured is the
Radical party themselves of this truth,
that they have even been prophesying
that if the Democrats ever get iuto
power they will overthrow them, and
throw out of the camp the accursed
thing. Evil can only be kept in power
by the bayonet. They, the Radicals,
kuow this. And they also know, to sus?
tain themselves, it is absolutely necessary
for them to elect Grant noxt year by the
bayonet, and at all hazards, for no other
man iu this Government is so suitable to
carry out their purposes aa he. I took
the position duriug the war that slavery
was an evil in the camp, a Jonas iu tho
vessel of State, and must be thrown
overboard, or we, too, with it, would go
down in the wreck. The negro element
in our Government has always been an
element of evil, and evil only. Long
previous to the war it bogan to work
tearing society to pieces, separating
North and South, dividing the different
denominations of Christians, and bring
lng on one of the most deatrnotive wars
on this continent. During the war it
entered to prevent that humane ex?
change of prisouers, and oaused thou?
sands of erjldiers, North and South, to
lie in prison, to rot and die. And, since
the war, the negro element has upheaved
our whole country, preventing the return
of peace; embittering one section
against the other in more deadly hatred
than the war itself caused. No wonder
the Radicals have nu instinctive presenti?
ment iu this matter. If the negro ele?
ment was grafted on the Constitution of
tho United Statee as a subordinate ele?
ment, and worked evil there, what will it
do grafted higher up on the body politic,
co-ordiuate aud co-equal iu power? Two
wrongs can never muke a right, i. e. evil
can never produce good. Not by vio?
lence can our country bo redeemed. The
true coutest in our country next year,
thu true issue before tho people, is which
sbull henceforth rule, tho bayonet or thc
ballot; if the former, thou Grant will be
elected; but, if the latter, then a man of
peuce-a statesman after the old Wash?
ington and Jefferson school will be elect?
ed. Ku Kluxiam in the South was ouly
u secret society like the Union League
iu fact, tho latter made the example and
forced into exuteuco tho former. Lot
us never forget that two evils can never
make a right. Not by violence or out?
rages, nor by seoret societies, we must
wm. Peace restores, war destroys.

heralded and reiterated over and' over
again,.and Lnhsii be pardoned for saying
that no. ono except a "dam phool" dis*
believes it. Now, why in the name of
common sense,'don't-yonr people seek a
remedy ? Do you, or they, hope for any
relief through a legislative oommittee?
And.do yon. suppose that any respecta?
ble sad *e5pf?ns!b!e trnsi company :or
bank is agoing to take the financial
agency from tho present incumbent,
wit-hoot knowifjg how the & coo tints stand ?
Why didn't your tax-paying convention
raise a oommittee of.three, with power
to call for persons and papers, and de?
mand of the Executive of the State a full
examination of all the books, both in Co?
lumbia and SUevJiere, wherever tho tax?
payers of Sonth Carolina had an interest?
Thoy would then have got the pulse of
Governor Scott and his amiable At
torney-General. They would never
have dared to refuse so reasonable a
request. Did they rofuse, they stood
oouvioted before the country of such
outrages as would have consigned them
out of hand to the same hourn, where
Tweed and tho Tammany twineth.
Now, I undertake to say, that with one
good man--accountant-and one good
lawyer, both from South Carolina, and
in the real interest of the State, and one
man, that I will name, who is now in the
city of New York, I will blow all those
fiuauoinl manipulators, of whom you so
loudly compiam, so high that they
would not come down to torment the
people of South Carolina again this side
of the final resurrection. It ?B not a
difficult task by any means; aud if I
omi Id see a few of your men of brains, I
could point out the road. Now is the
time for action; delays ure dangerous.
? have writteu to my old counsel in
Charleston upon this subject, in a con?
fidential way, aud I desire that yon will
treat this communication the same.
South Carolina to-day, with all her mis?
fortunes of Ku Klux, martial law, aud
wholesale robbery, CAN, if sha will make
an effort in the direction indicated, re?
lieve herself at once of a score of abomi?
nations, and, in good time, raise herself
to the dignity and credit of any State in
the nation. There is nothing vague or
illusory in these suggestions. I mean
business, and if your people desire re?
lief, they must attend to business. It
will not do to fight such wind-mills SB
the Union, and carpet-baggers, and
Grant, and thieves, on paper. Facts
and a legal tribunal is what is wanted to
immediately secure the sympathy of all
good men, and ultimately equal and
exact justice. That was the chute that
done the business for Tweed and his
men last Tuesday in Now York, and a
similar course, by your people, will
place South Carolina ou high ground.
TUE GREAT UOUTBEUN PIANO MANU?
FACTORY.-We refer with special plea?
sure to the advertisement of the great
Soutberu piano manufactory of Messrs.
Wm. Knabe k Co., of Salti more. This
factory is uow one of the largest in tho
world; it is a magnificent five story
structure, fronting an entire block on
Eutaw street, aud covering, together
with the lumber yards attached, some
two and one-half acres of ground. 350
men are constantly employed, turning
out forty instruments per week. Among
the thousand und one pianos offered to
tho public, wo scarcely know auy instru?
ment BO fully uniting nil the desirable
qualities sought for as tho Knabe piauo.
lt is a matter of some difficulty and per?
plexity to inexperienced persons to ?elect
a good instrument of any capucity. We
too often rely upon the judgment of
friends in the selection of a piauo, nnd
aro thus frequeutly disappointed. Tho
only sure way, in our opinion, is to go
to the best maker. For this reason, wo
recommend to our readers to purchase
piauos of Wm. Kimbo Sc Co.'a manufac?
ture. This will rcliovo them the vexa?
tious necessity of wasting time in a long
search. Thu reputatiou of the Kuube
pianos is au infallible guaranty of excel?
lence. For durability, we would spe?
cially recommend them, ns being made
iu a Southern oity, with special view to
the trying changes of a Southern climate.
A MIRACULOUS ESCAPE.-On last Sat?
urday morning, Dr. J. E.Solf, accompa?

both buggy and horse were floating

ed thu horse to make a sudden turn,
which upset the buggy, throwing Mrs.
Holloway and himself into the stream.

ASSEMBLING OF THE LEGISLATURE.
Rev. R. H. Cain, ex-State Senator, and
at present editor of the Missionary
Record, a paper published in Charleston
in the interest of the colored lace, some?
times comes down to a sensible view of
mutters. lu the last number of his
paper the following urticle appears:
"Tho Generul Assembly of this State
meets on the third Tuesday in this
mouth, to transact the business of the
people. Wo are almost at a loss to know
what they will be culled upon to do for
tho State, that they have not already
done. The passuge of tho im mortui
code, which bas been 'codified,'and will,
if wo aro rightly iuformed, take three
months, to pass through that august
body. There is no need of any legisla?
tion, in relation to anything else in this
State just now. The State has no
credit, it hos no railroads, it has nothing
of which it can bo plundered, unless it
is tho taxes'? whioh are yet to bo paid.
So far as tho other matters of the State
aro concerned, the present government
resides in New York. The repre?
sentatives, or heads of the rep?
r?sentatives of the State in Con?
gress, reside in Massachusetts. 1 h.ire
are only a few niggers and rebels
down hero who have no say in the go?
vernment of this commonwealth. Why
should the people be taxed to support
what is termed a general debating olub
at so great a cost, is a grave question for
the financial agent in New York to de?
cide, when the next draft is made to pay
their expenses. The people of this State
have no control of its interests; ten to a
dozen long heads direct the whole thing.
The nogroes are too ignorant, the 'robs'
are too few in number to ont vote the
hitter, who nre too incredulous to trust
tho Southern whites; the wire-workers
pluy upon their passions and their fours,
and thus keep up a ruuning fire between
tho whites and hincks, und while they
thus fight, they steal aud plunder both
'nigger and rob.' When the smoke and
lighting is over, the negroes have no?
thing gained und the whites have nothing
left, wbilo thu jackals have all the booty.
When that august body meets, we shull
watch with a degree of pleasure its great
work of restoring the State to a healthy
condition, if thoru is any of it left."
