Tne.jay Morning, Mareil 12.1872. '
Look on that Flotara anti then OB Thia.
A correspondent of the New York
Time*,-, the loading Grant organ now in
the United States, writing from New
Hampshire on the conduct and progress
of the canvass there, aaya:
"The faot that the Dem?crata have
possession of the State Government
oaring the carrent year, has also been of
great ase to their opponents, who have
been able to show that the expenses
were inoreasod $17,000 in the first six
months, and the session of the last Le?
gislators extended seven days, both of
which are very seriooB matters with this
Did snob a statement appear ia any
other than an unswerving Republican
jonrnal, like the Times, we should be
inclined to regard it as a hoax. It mnst
be borne in mind that the Republicans
?re exerting the whole strength of their
mighty organization to seoare New
Hampshire for their party, or rather for
Grant. Every means and appliance
known to political Btrategy has been
brought into play ia their behalf. Their
Organization is perfect. Republican
olnbs are organized in every precinct,
**d the election fever wrought np to
raging heat. Speakers, great and small,
and from every section of the Union,
irosa Wilson, of Massachusetts, to the
sometimes Senator from Charleston, of
oar own State, have been mastered into
Grant's service, and the work is going
bravely on. Every error, or mistake,
or appearance of anything of the kind,
on. tito part of the present Democratic
administration, mast, of coarse, be
ierro ted oat, and ased to their damage;
colored, too, with all the extravagance
which partisan zeal begets. This, then,
ia the sam and sabstaace of Democratic
Binning in New Hampshire, for last
year, "their enemies themselves being
the judges." They have inoreased the
State expenditures $17.000 in six
months, and prolonged the session of
the Legislature seven days, and these
facts, says the correspondent of the
Times, give a great advantage to . their
The thing appears supremely ridicu?
lous to a progressiva South Carolinian.
The prosper?os and wealthy inhabitants
of New Hampshire should oome down
and take a few lessons from our princely
flnanoial ring in the art of expending
public moneys. They would hang their
diminished heads for shame, when they
would placo their little old $17,000 along?
side of onr millions, and that ono weeli
of extra session by oar three mouths.
And Corbin, d- t- Corbin, how droll it
. Bast be to any one knowing his connec?
tions and career here to hear him, with
saintly horror expressed on his Puritanic
visage, detailing to the honest people ol
New Hampshire the profligate expendi?
tures of the corrupt Democracy, whicL
sam ap the enormous amount of $17,00C
in six months. Oh, that Sol Smith Ru; .
aell might see tho sight. His fortune
would be made, and we would all groo
fat with laughing. "Corbin on the Non
Hampshire finances," woaldbein charm'
rag antithesis to Sol's school-boy thal
boo hooed "Bingen on the Rhine." HOM
Corbin must giggle in his sleeves at thc
simplicity of his audienoe, when he endi
ono of his virtuous harangues. It is tc
be hoped that in his efforts to depict
Democratic dishonesty to the people o
the Granite State, he may become per
sanded into the belief that he is honesl
himself, and remain ander the delusion
if ho will act accordingly when ho re
tarns to Sooth Carolina. Bat what mos
surprises us in this matter is, that Nov
Hampshire, one of tho Now Eaglauc
States, tho sent of soience and oracle o
wisdom to the Western Hemisphere
should have fallen so far in tho rear ot
the grand march of civilization tba
characterizes tho age, as Mr. Chamber
Iain says. Only $17,000 increased ex
penses in one year! Oar Northen

"Yankee go-aheudativoness and progress
Wo are a moro pre grossi vo people thai

though wo must admit that Norther:
men have given us this great impetus oi
the path of progress, still thoy claim t
be identified with our section now, an>
they never could mako snob rapid ad
Tances with their people "to hum."
.Under oar old fogy ways of doin
business, it used to cost the State les
than $f>00,000 to support ita govern
ment a year. Seo how we progresso
last year. There was in the spring
tax of nine mills on tho dollar, levied o
upwards of $183,000,000 of taxable prc
perty, assessed at its full valae, profest
odly, but really nt more. Thia woul
bring in upwards of $1,000,000. Tba
ia somo progress itself. Compared t
$500,000, it is a geometrical progreseio
of un increasing series, with three ami
traction for a ratio. Still, it by no mean
forma the measure of our advance, J
year ago, wo only had a public debt of
87,665,908 08, according io the report of
the Comptroller-General. Now, upon
the same authority, wo can boast of a
borden of $15,851,327.35. The pro?
gress, then, in one yoar, is as ?500,000
to $10,000,000, or 1 to 20. To make
this progress certain, the Legislature is
taking steps to valid?le it, so that there
may be no slipping back to old fogy
notches. This is necessary, as tho pole
of progress is a slippery one. Who
does not fool 'proud to be a South Caro?

Our Municipal KIrclion.
The Union, yesterday, gave us a very
fair-sonndiog article npon the character
and qualifications of the men who should
be elected to control our city affairs for
the next term. Says that jonrnal:
"When a candidate presents himself for
one ot these positions, let these questions
first be settled: Is be competent to ma?
nage his own affaira successfully? Is he
intelligent, capable and honest?"
That is all very good, and for once,
mirabile diclu, the Union and the PHOE?
NIX may be said to be of ono mind, to
Borne extent. Bot the question is, how
is this object tobe attained? There ia
where the Union makes his mistake. J
How ere honest, intelligent and capable '
men most likely to be scoured, and the j
city government administered alike in
tho interests of the property-holders
and the laboring olasses? It will not)
best be done by making a party iaaue of
the matter. We do not believe that
every man is dishonest who is a Repub?
lican. There areas good men in tho
Republican party as ont of it, we are
free to admit. While this is true, it is
equally evident that a just proportion of
honest and intelligent Republicans have
not been bronght to South Carolina yet,
or grown here. The conduct of oar
Stato Government, oar financial oondi
Lion, and the actions of our present City
Council, shows the vastly preponder?
ating influence of corrupt mon in the
Republicanism in South Carolina np to
this date. Judging of the futuro by the
past, if Republicanism is made a pre?
requisite qualification for candidates-if
party lines are drawn, and the election
carried on through tho agency of more
political oluba, which, os a rule, are
worked and manipulated by a few bad
men-political trickslern and the veriest
demagogues-we may expect nothing
but to nee a set of men in tbs main un?
reliable placed in office. Tho material
interests of the city will inevitably be
sacrificed to the privuto greed of n few
There is no reason why politics should
be dragged into a municipal election.
Where there is no groat diversity of in?
terests, aud cnoh parly embodies a fair
proportion of the wealth, integrity and
intelligence, sucha course works co groat
harm. But it is wrong anywhere, and
specially reprehensible in Buch a condi?
tion of affairs us exist in Columbia
whero tho mass of tho property-holders
and of intelligent citizens are ono nido,
and that side iu a minority. Party ?sm is
the ourse of our country. lu their blind
zeal for party advancement, even good
citizens forget their country and knaves
profit by it. Noarly all political parties
are basod on pure and patriotic princi?
ples; but, as has been trill}- said, they
first become powerful and thou corrupt.
In oar city government every sousible,
reflecting citizen must admit that it is
eminontly desirable, if not absolutely
necessary, to seen ru at least an economi?
cal management of city affairs, that the
tax-payers who happen to be, a? a rule,
anti Radical in their political viows,
should bo represented in Ibo City Coun
oil. Thc truo idea of Republicanism is
that all tho varied interests of society,
or as near all as can possibly bo m ido
practicable, should bc represented and
have thoir due influence in tho govern?
ment. This follows, logically, from tho
ground-work of our political oreed, that
all governments should rest on tho con?
fient of the governod. If wo had tho
system of minority representation by
cumulative voting in operation hero,
there would be no trouble or difficulty in
thu matter. As it is, we must endeavor
to secure as nearly tho same result as is
possible, by compromiso und agreement
betwoon our two classes of citizens.
Both white and black desire, or should
desire, tho best possible govornment at
tho smallest possible cost. On this latter
point tho body of tax-payors aro the
moro directly interested. They foot the
bill of costs, aud they want it kept at ns
low a figure as is ootiHistont with an effi?
cient and proper government. All they
wish and will Btrivo for is to keep down
taxation and provent fraudulent or ex?
travagant increased of tho city debt.

TICHBORNE COKE TO GRIEF.-The cele?
brated Tiohborne oase, which baa been
ao long on trial in London, has come to
an abrnpt conclusion, the plaintiff bov
ing decided to withdraw bia case, and
tho defendant's counsel thereupon mov?
ing the arrest of the claimant for per?
jury, which motion was granted, and
Tiohborae taken into custody and con?
veyed to Newgate. The bottom of the
tub has come out of the pseudo-baro
not'? pretensions at au earlier stage of
the trial than any ouo could have ex?
pected. Sir John Coleridge, who opened
for the defence on the 15th of January,
when the case was resumed after an ad?
journment of somo months, must have
talked the unhappy Tiohborne to death,
for he had occupied four hours a day
from that dato np to the 21st of Febru?
ary, when the testimony for the defence
commenced. The reports of the entire
case, down to about the middle of Feb?
ruary, bad occupied more than 700 co?
lumns of the closely-printed matter iu
the Times, and nearly 100 days have
now been spent by the court in ita con?
sideration. Tho celebrated Tiohborne
bonds will DOW probably approximate

as an offset to the United States claims
at Geneva for indirect damages.
Tm ax, OF MAYOR HALL.-So far the
trial of Mayor Hall, of New York, for
complicity with Tweed and others, in
the Tammany ring frauds, has proved a
tedious bnsiness-a mere conflict of
technicalities as to the admissibility of
certain forms of testimony. The de?
fence bas ocenpiod much time in au at?
tempt to role out of evidence a certain
warrant issued to Garvey, the plasterer,
for over 841,000, to which the Mayor's
signature was attached; but on yester?
day the objections ware overruled, and
the warrant admitted as secondary evi?
dence. The prosecution thon offered a
book of audit, and the defence objected,
and so the fight will, doubtless, con?
tinuo to the end, if, indeed, it ia ever

borate statement of the motives that
impolled him to suoh a ooarse. All
summed ap, it amounts to this, that the
Democratic party and tho Reform party
are defunct, and that the only way pos?
sible to regenerate the State Govern?
ment is lo join tho Republican party,
and thereby .secure tho confidence of the
negro; that the negro prefers to be led
by his former master, and that the white
people of the State, if they would win

A STOLEN PIANO.-The Beaufort lie
publican says: The case of Behn, execu?
tor of Belau, against C. C. Dudder, pre?
sents some points of interest to mauy of
our readers. There is a great dual of
property held by the samo dubious title
in this vicinity, and it is probable simi?
lar suits will be plentiful. Suit was
brought in this casu by Buhn to recover
tho value of a piano taken from tho
house of Belan during tho occupation of
Grahamville by Sherman's army. De?
fendant claimed to have received tho
[Mano from an officer of the Federal
army, and that ho saved it from the
burning building, in which otherwise it
would have been destroyed. The jury
gave a verdict for plaiutii? for $200 and

There ia a manifest inclination on Ibo
part of the colored people and the better
white Republicans of the city to lay
Mida politics and join ia s citizens'
moTsment to seonre honest and efficient
city officials at the coming eleotion. All
that is needed is a little energy and zeal
on the part of the white people The
work should be commenced at once, and
meetings called in every ward in the
city. Let the common platform be op?
position to the Oity Hall fraud and to
the issno of the $250,000 of oity bonds,
low taxes and no increase of the city
debt. All good mon will combine for
that laudable purpose.
If there is any public spirit in onr
people, now is the timo to develop it.

pledge of several prominent colored
oitizens that they will lend their influ?

ing. We can Bhow that by the nomina?

TUB HAVANA STTJDBNTS -Onr readers
will remember that some months since
ten or a dozen young students, mers
boya, were murdered in Havana by
order of a military oourt martial, for an
offence which it was believed, at the
time, they had never committed. A
large number of studeotu were, at the
same time, and for an alleged participa?
tion in the same offence, condemned to
the chain gang fur a long term of years.
The following New York telegram ahows
that even tho power of the young King
of Spain is not equal to relieving these
young men from their loathsome punish?
ment. It says:
A Havana letter in the Sun says
seventy Spanish representatives recently
waited on King Amadeus in Madrid,
with unequivocal proof of the innocence
of tho young students oondemued to the
chain gang. The King telegraphed
Valmaseda, at Havana, to release the
atudeuts at once, but Valmaseda declines
on the farcical pretenso that the volun?
teers will assassinate thu lads as soon as

Over 2,000 persoas of various shades

sweet carolings of Alias Nelli? Brown
and Miss Marianne Williams, the two
Afrioan-Americaa prime donne?, who
have lately magnetized fashionable co?
lored society in that oity by their musi?
cal talents. Miss Nellie Brown is an
octoroon, with very haudsome features,
aud a rarely ?weet voice, of rather small
compilas at present, but capable of fine
cultivation. Miss Brown has enjoyed
the attention of the highest colored fa?
milies of New York for aoine time past,
and she is now aboot to proceed to Italy,
to study music and improve her voice
under tba great masters of song.' Sho

us with interesting original contribu?

editorial columns bristle with sharp,
pointed paragraphs relating to trade,
whioh ure in marked contrast to the
hackneyed style of introducing a busi?
ness to the public. The artiole which
appears in the first plane among the
original contribuions, is by Laura C.
Holloway, and is written in the author*?

THE GREAT HAIB PRODUCER.-Hair Oils,
Pomatums and Pomades havo had their day.
They belong to tho musty past. Nobody that
understands tho chemistry of tho hair and
tho philosophy of its growth thinks of using
them. Instead of clogging tho poreB of tho
scalp with thick onguents, and thus obstruct?
ing tho insensible perepiration which ie
essential to the boaltb of the fibres, we now
tono tho surface of the bead with an invigo?
rating application which penetrates to the
roots of the hair and stimulates thom in the
same way that tho fertilizing agents spread
ovor tho meadows stimulate tho grasa roots
and cause tho blades to spring up in myriads,
coating tho oarth with verdure. The ?nvigo
rant best adapted to this purpose is LYON'S
KATH AinoN. It may well ho called tho fertili?
zer of the head. To tho barron eoalp it com?
municates vegetativo power. If the hair is
dropping out or becoming dry and withered,
it arresta tho process of dilapidation or
blight. The hair thickens and becomes
glossy and flexible under its genial operation,
and as a dressing it is nuapnroached hy any
preparation that has yet neon laid on tho
toil) t of Fashion.
