Q Tva ?? POLITICAL OUT LOOK IN SOUTH
CAROLINA, AS REVIEWED BY REV. R. H.
OATH.-If the present movement amopg
the clansmen of the different parties
means anything, there is a serions shuf?
fling in the camps. The organization of
various orders indicates a solidification
of the strength of Republicans in th's
State. The calls for conventions of the
Republicans, and the renowal of fealty
among the Democracy-the polioy of
conciliation, which is tho declared polioy
for the future among them as toward the
oolored element-shows which way the
wind ?B blowing. The wide-Bprea . dis?
content among Republicans with thu
present administration, and the onor
mons outlay of moneys to innot the re?
quirements of Government, which neces?
sitates additional taxation, calls loudly
on the people to consider their best in?
terests in the coming campaign, whether
there should be any ohangu mude in
their present law-makers and those who
direct the affairs of State. There aro
some fautu which cannot be m i sinken 1 y
the most careless observer-namely, that
extravagance has boen the ruin of the
finances of this State Tho needless ex?
penditures for military organizations,
for maintaining hundreds of needless
officers in the State, whioh were created
to muko a good soft place for some hang?
ers-on to the Republican party, who
could not reuder any practical good to
the country, for tho paymeut of hun?
dreds of attaches to the General Assem?
bly, who uro but a burden to the tax?
payers, by the need leas expenditures for
committee rooms, wines, brandies aud
whiskey, for avery room, for clerks to
committees, aud ?1 thousand and oue>
other needless extravagances. All these
things tho people should inquire into.
The content will doubtless be between
R. K. Scott, F. J. Moses, J. L. Orr,

THU COMINO COMET.-A few weeks
since a Swiss newspaper informed its
readers th.it M. Plantamonr, an astrono?
mer of extraordinary skill, bad predicted
tbe arrival, early next August, of a com?
et which would come into collision with
the earth. It is undeniable that this
story has produced considerable uneasi?
ness in Europe among the unscientific
and credulous people who pat faith in
their newspapers, and unless tho ficti?
tious character of both M. Plnntamonr
and his comet shonld be established,
there are multitudes who will watch un?
easily for tho coining of the fiery stran?
Years ago the dread of a cometary col?
lision was quite commou. Tho comet
was then sr.pposed to be a wholly inde?
pendent body, which, in utter scorn of
planetary time table, ran its erratic
course heedless of the safety of itself aud
of tho planets. Since then we have
learned that the comets of our solar sys?
tem are as regular in their habita us our
oldest and Htaidest planets, and that they
are, moreover, for the mobt part, con?
stituted of mich tenuous vapor that a
collision between the largest of them and
the earth would be imperceptible, ex?
cept in the form of a slight increase in
haziness of the atmosphere. It is true
that a degree of irresolution is some?
times shown by these bodies-UB in the
case of tho susceptible comet which was
detained iu its route by the fascinations
of the moon of Jupiter-still it was con?
ceded that this particular comet intend?
ed no violence, but, Uko u very young
man who meels a bevy of pretty bourd
iug-eohool yilla taking the air together,
was induced to pause in admirutiou un?
til the seductive moons wore led away by
their matronly planet.
The comet of M. Plant amour is not,
however, one of the tame, domesticated
and omiueut?y respectable comets of our
system, but a wild and dangerous wan?
derer from the interstellar wildernesses.
Of its coustituti )u, whether gascona or
solid, it is yet impos-ublo to judge, but
we arc assured that it is of euorinout
size, and is heading directly toward tin:
earth. Shonld it cousist of burning
hydrogen, it would hardly fail to add
very unpleasantly to thu heat of August,
while, if it is UHolid body.it will undoubt?
edly smash the earth to pieces, aud con?
vert it into scores of small meteoric
Au elaborate calculation of the foret
with which it will strike shows that
whilo everything at the point of collisiot
will be pulverized, all objects on the op
p?sito bide of the earth will be drivel
into space, there to revolve on orbits o
their own. Thus, ehould tho come
strike tba Ameriuau continent, the rogioi
of space directly under our feet would Ix
filled with the fragments of China, wliil?
meteoric tea-cheats aud aerolite China
men would thenceforth cirelo foreve
round the nun in orbit? of greater orles
eccentricity-. This fact will become ?
matter of immense importance when th
time of collision draws near. So long e.
a choice remains, no ono who can be
come an independent aerolite will prefe
to remain where ho must inevitably b
smashed. We may, therefore, expect t
find the greater part of the human rac
collected next August ou that hemtspber
where they will be safe from pulveriza
tion, but whence they will start in cud
less journeyings through space. Whet!
er thu ingenuity of inventors will pru
vide patent safety planets, filled wit
condensed food and uflordiug room ft
small families, HO that the horrors of so
itary traveliug may bo avoided, re ni? ir
to be seen. At ult uveuts, lovers wh
await the shock clasped in euch other'
anns can look forward with certainty t
a union which will never bo broken ur

Lovers, liowevtr, may not be tho tin',
ones who will be compelltd to jonrni
hand iu hand together. Imagination r
coils from the contemplation of Ibo fa
of that indiscreet husband who may ii
cautiously bu found near his mothcr-il
law at the moment of collision, and tin
bo forced to form with her a now ?ort <
double si ar, wilone fitful light, as ll
flory old lady and the saddened husbai
should alternately present themselves
