Who La Responsible for IO
Tho Union/pt yeaterday'a dato, refer?
ring to the Oity Hall swindle, which was
defeated by the prompt aotion of the
"Whatever swindling there was con?
templated in that affair, cannot be
ebarged any more tb the Republican
party than tho Democratic."
That is an exceedingly lamo get-off,
.yen for the Union. We should like to
know what the Democratic party, that
hadn't a ghost of * representative io the
City Council, had to do with the matter.
Demooratio citizens exposed the turpi?
tude of the Council, sud have succeeded
in defeating the consommation of tbe
Msoally scheme; bnt even that was in
now iso a party aotion, but was simply
the effort of business men, interested in
the welfare of tho city aud responsible
for its debts, to save themselves, in com?
mas with other oitizens, from down
righi robbery. We presume tbe Union
finds snoh foundation as it may havo for
the nssertion in the connection of Mr.
?lark Wuring with tho contract in its
incipiency. Whatever wrong that gen?
tleman committed by putting in a fie ti
tious bid, without making proper esti?
mates, and tbuB giving a coloring of
iairness to the fraud, he did all io his
power afterwards to remedy the evil that
he had helped to cause. That itr more
than can be said of auy of .tho other
But suppose that Mr. Waring bad
been an equal partner with Mr. Allen in
every respect, and had never made any
amends whatever, bnt had striven, like
the other, to perfect the rascally scheme
-could the Demooratio party be in any?
wise held responsible for bis merely in?
dividual action-the conduct of a mau
who occupies no offioial position? Is a
political party blameable for the private
eon ?I oct of every individual member of
it? The fact that Mr. Allen is a Repub?
lican does not make bis conduct charge?
able to the Republican party; not at al!.
The public responsibility for that City
Hall swindle rests npon the City Conn?
ell. They were the servants of the peo?
ple, the honored guardians of tho publio
trusts, and they are tbe men that basely
betrayed that trust, and, "for a consid?
eration," shamelessly sacrificed tho peo?
ple's interest-). Somo of them did, at
any rate, and the rest either winked at
it, or were too stupid to soe it. For
their action, tho so-called Republicanism
of Columbia stands arraigned, in so far
as they have not denounced it, nor taken
steps to punish them for it. But moBt
especially do they ?boulder the sins oi
these mon, when they renominate a por?
tion of them again for office, and sup
plement them with their white sympa?
thizers-advisers, bosom friends and
abettors. The State is already bank?
rupted by them, and the oity will a?
surely go to the dogs as night follow?
day, if such white men as are now iu
aomination are eleoted, under the pre?
tence of being Republicans. If tbe co?
lored people are content to sacrifiae ibt
eity aud Stato ta. gratify tho greed ol
these men, upon mem most full the rc
spontiibility. The rnln must be sharer"
in common, but the white people will
bave, at least, the consolation of know?
ing that they did all they oould to ward
14 off. They have stepped forward,
xithout one dissenting voice, and of
fered the band of union, harmony nm]
friendship, with a view to effect thc
eommon good, If the colored people
will not listen to us-if they disregard
oar entreaties, and the advico, too, ol
their, own best men, and continuo tc
foUojv the deceitful counsels of in
ingoing carpet-baggers-they will hav<
no one tn blame but themselves.
The New York Herald brags high ot
Grant, but is nevertheless very uneasj
about his re-election. It shows this l>.\
its anxiety to get up a trump card for hin
in the matter of tbe annexation ol
Mexico, it ..links tho American pcoph
eannot resist the temptation of a grea
land-grab. The Herald talko nonsensi
io be sensational. Annexation can bi
only effected by treaty or by a sucoessfu
war. Mexican hatred of America no wil
prevent the first, and we must becom<
public robbers and international high
way m on to adopt tho second. Besides
the time is not yot ripe.

our judgment, Mggdso M tuai?f .tvery
citizen whomwa'have heard s peak-on
the subject, a more jadioioua and satis
factory selection could not possibly have
been made. Mr. Wing is par excellence
the working-men's representative. He
is, we understand, a nativo of Massachu?
setts, but baa lived for many years in
this oity. Ho has the confidence of the
entire community as an honest, euerge"
tic and sagacious mau of basinesa; io
short, fills the bill in every respect. A
Republican in prinoiple, as we aro in?
formed, be has, however, never sup?
ported those who call themselves Repub?
lican in their nnrepoblioan sots-?nob a
Republican as an honest man of any
party may vote for aa Mayor of the oity
without losing his self-respect, and with
a consciousness that he is subaerviug the
true interests of the oity. We have now
a good ticket in the field-suoh a one as
no oitizen who has at heart the welfare
of the city can bnt commend and sop
pork There is left for ns now nothing
to do bat to go to work steadily, ear?
nestly and hopefully to seenre their elec?
tion. It is sickening to hear men-good
cilizon6,. too-croaking, and, in a iszy,
indifferent tone, sayiug: "Oh! it's nu
use to try; the carpet-baggers have got
the colored . people completely under
their thumbs, and they won't budge,
except?t their beck." There is no vir
tao in despondunoy. A oitizen of Co?
lumbia who is content to sit listlessly,
with his hands in his pockets, and make
oo effort to rescue tho oity, when he scot
ghastly ruin staring her in the face, ic
unworthy of citizenship.
Contrast oar oity with Charleston.
How wont are we boaatfnl Oolambiaut
to regard and -speak of that venerable
old town as a sleepy-sided, fossilatec
relict of past grandeur. Wo flatter our
selves that we are far ahead of our siatei
"oity by the ssa," in energy, euterprisi
and progress. Unless we make a vigor
ons and successful effort to cleanse ou:
city government of corruption, and t<
place proper mon in charge of he
affairs, we can never with justice alain
even equality in publia zeal and Bpiri
with the people of Charleston. Unde
difficulties far greater than ours, the;
oleoted a conservative and mixed ticke
of white and oolored, which has givei
satisfaction to both races, and proven
blessing to the city We can and mag
do tho same here, if every mau will d
his duty. Among the merchants, espe
chally, there should bcooncertof aotior
Thoy should meet aud consult and ogre

closed and the people nt the polls. L<
every good oitizen consider himself as
comnntteoof one to see, talk with an

a good cause, an unexceptionable ticke
aud if now we only put oar ehoulde:
vigorously to the wboel, and give

SERIOUSLY . ANO SLIGHTLY INJURED, -
Afooni-10 o'clock, yesterday morning, a
dull and heavy? sou Dd, similar to tbs re
verberationSof* a distant canoon, ?as
heard throughput the city. It soon got
ram oreel abroad that there bad been an
explosion atibo iron works of Jphtt P.
Taylor Sc Oo., in Pritchard street. There,
a largo norn ber of persons repaired, and
asoertain?a that tho twenty horse hori?
zontal tubular boiler, situated in the
rear of tho main shop/, and o?od in driv?
ing tho machinery therein and elsewhere
tn the works, had bnrstrBoattering the
ir>n casings, in which it was enclosed,
the drums abd fragments in every direq-;
ti on, sumo of them falling in the street?
and premises in (he vicinity. A portion
ot a drum WSB thrown on the boiler shop
shed, and another portion into the yard
of the carpenter shop of Sawner Sc Fer?
guson, Hasel street. Tho entire back of
the building, contiguous to where the
boiler stood, was tom oat, leaving
nothing but splinters every here and
there, the -sashes and windows being
shattered, and the,interior generally in?
jured. In some places in the yard, the
earth was ploughed up, showing the
fury with which the flying pieces bad
been sent forth.
The loss of life and personal damage
wore miraoolously slight, considering
tho faot that the boiler was completely
deutroyed, and tho place where it stood
only recognizable by tho indented square
iu tho ground, whore the bnee on whioh
it rested lay. '.
Frederick Barton, an apprentice fifteen
years old, whose parents live in John?
son'? Row, East Bay, who was firing op
the boiler at the time of the explosion,
was thrown to a great height in the air,
and was seen by HO ver al perso nu in his
rapid descent, doubling up and spread?
ing out until he struck the plank road in
Hasel street, where his lifeless and man?
gled form was fonud, with his faae
smashed io, his legs und arms nnd bones
J. F. .Lyons and Mike Blanche, em?
ployees of tho wirks, wore injured in
the bead by flying fragments. John
Robinson, a monlder, had ono of his
legs broken and mashed. Wm. McLeish
was struck in the stomach by a piece of
wood and knooked over. John Q linn,
who was standing within fifty feet of the
exploding boiler, had a narrow escape, a
piece of a flue having passed through
his loose shirt. Alexander Knowles nnd
John Earley wore also slightly injured.
The buildings in the vicinity, and par?
ticularly those OD East Hay,'North and
South of Hasel street, suffered from con?
cussion in their windows, sashes and
The boilei had undergone a complete
overhauling a month ago, and was ro I
gurded as perfeoily safe, and had been
visited by Mr. Kelly, the foreman, a few
minutes before tho explosion, and found,
ho says, to contain a .sufficient quantity
of water. - Charleston Courier.
TUB OUTLAWS.-Mr. A. B. Henderson,
tho Herald correspondent, appeared yes?
terday nt Moss Neck, BB the train passed
that point. Ho WSB apparently alone,
although he stated that the outlaws were
near ut hand, and had forbade him to
leave thom yet. He spoke as though ho
wan n'iw really in fear of them, they
having searched him and taken his pis?
tol from him immediately on his return
to them from Lu m berton . They appear
to entertain suspicions in regard to his
business amoug them, and seemed to
fear, particularly, that he might attorn nt
to stupefy them with chloroform, should
he entertain any idea of effecting their
capture. He stated that he had pro?
mised to go with them, once more, to
vihit some of their old haunts that he
hud not yet Been, when they are to re?
lease him, and he will return again to
civilizad life. - Wilmington Journal,
DEATH OF THE CHARTER.-It becomes
our duty this week to record tho death
of the town cbartor-killed by Radical
ass teed ns. The charter of tho town of
Iiuurensvillo was repealed by tho Le?
gislature, among the lust business trans?
acted by that party-colored body. As
if in keeping with other dark deeds of
that bright assemblage, they gavo it the
finishing bios' that killed it outright
under the cover of nature's mantle-iu
the night session of Wednesday, the
13th, just beforo adjournment at mid?
night-a tit lime for dark deeds, and
the assassin's favorite hour. They lin?
gered long at their favorito haunt, loth
to give Hp tho grateful teat that had
yielded so many rich cups of stolen pap,
und as the lust drops of the udder are
tho richest cronin,-they wero determined
to "strip" it well.-Laurenscille Herald.
A iemnrkablu co?ncidence is related
by tho Lubanon (Ky.) Standard. Wm.
Peyton, aged about eighty years, a resi?
dent of Casey, was on his way to Cindi's
Mill, about three weeks ogo, ono windy
day, and in passing through some heavy
timber, a falling limb struck him upou
the hoad, which resulted in his death in
a fow hours. This snmo Peyton, about
thirty years ago, struck his wifo upou
tho head with un oven and killod her in?
stantly, pretending that she had be?
witched him. For this orime, ho wus
sent to tho penitentiary, but was nomi
afterward pardoned on account of his
craziness. His death occurred upon tho
same day nf tho wook and month that
bis wife died many years beforo. So
much for coincidence
Ou tho arrival of the Waterbury train
it Hartford, two ladies stepped upon
tho platform. One of them, with firm
itep mid quick motion, stepped up to
the other, and clenching both hands
into her curia and bonnet, pulled sharp?

wreucbed away and huir disheveled, lt
was tho work of a moment. Tho at?

TIIB NEW GERMAN CONSCRIPTION.-The
increased rate of conscription coming
ihtr? foroe in Germany this year adds
4.0,000 men annually to the strength of
the standing army. Thus in ten years
the Government will have no additional
army of 400.000amen at ita disposal. It
ia not proposed to form thoso. into new
regiments,-but, in accordance with the
principle ndopted since 1866, to attach
fourth, and, iu certain oases, even fifth
battalions to existing regiments. When
battalions muster l.OOOand 2,000 strong,
the idea of a five battalion regiment con?
voya in itself the impression of an army
and a brigade-at all events, figures as a
formidable force. Tho only possible
difficulty is to find offioers for the new
foroe. It is believed, however, that
there will bu a sufficiency of retired
officers of tho lino in time of war to fill
the higher grades, and as for tho lower
grades, the one-year volunteer system
supplies ample material for filling thom,
Thus it ia shown to bo one of the prin?
cipal advantages of the German compnl
sory syutem, that besides providing mon
for tho rank and filo at a comparatively
small cost tn tho State, it furnishes
officers at almost no cost at all, lineante
most of tho educated mon iu tho couu
try, availing themselves of tho privileges
of the oue-year service, aro able to poss
tho necessary examination, and in n
country where men aro valued according
to thoir military rank, they are eager to
seize the easy opportunity for obtaining
the coveted porte epec.
COMMERCIAL WEALTH. -Holland has
hitherto been reported the richest coun?
try, all things considered, in Europe,
and what makes har so (tho New York
Express insists) is her system of free
commerce. Without much agriculture,
she carries much of the agriculture of
the world. Almost without ports or
harbors, sho fails an immense number of
ships. She produces neither tea nor
coffee, sugar nor spices, leather nor tin,
yet her merchants are immense shippers
of each of these articles. Of our own
United States stocks ami bonds her peo?
ple own about $400,000,000, nearly one
fifth of the whole sum out. Cornelius
DeWitt showed how the Netherlands,
whilo not producing a bushel of wheat,
yet gavo its citizens tho whitest bread in
all Europe; and, "though not producing
a sheaf of hemp, a single plunk, or auy
iron, had the best fleet whioh then ruled
tho sea." The secret of all this wealth
aud success has born an unshackled
commerce-the right of her citizens to
direct their energies to every field of
enterprise, uuburthened by taxas levied
in special interests. American legisla?
tion hus first killed commerce, nnd now
proposes to galvanize it into a ghastly
Nemblauco of life by bonuses paid from
the taxes drawn from ull tho othe- inte?
rests in the community.
KAIIJROAD MBETINO.-Wo learn that
President Magrath and Vice-President
Tyler, of tho South Caroliua Railroad,
were in tin eily ou Thursday, and that
they met hero President Wadley and
Superintendent Rogers, of tho Central
Railroad-the four ollicials holding n
consultation at the Planters' Hotel on
Thnrsday night. Tho object of tho con?
ference is not known, unless it was held,
as some suppose, for the purpose of
taking Momo notion with regard to the
aid extended by tho Georgia to tho Port
Royal B'lilroad. The endorsement by
the Georgia Bailroad of 81.000,000 of
tho bonds of the Port Royal Company
makes the completion of tho latter Hue
no longer a matter of doubt. Tl>o road
will bu finished, and finished, its friends
Ray, by autumn-certainly by tho 1st of
January. When it is opened, we will
have not only a short and direct route
to the son, hut the lino will intersect tho
Savannah and Charleston Road, and
givo us now communication with the
termini of that road almost as short as
we now have by the Augusta aud Sa?
vannah and South Carolina Railroads.
If the Central and South Carolina Roadc,
forgetting former fonds, and, notting
against a common danger, should got
control of the Savaunah and Charleston
line, they might be able to prevent any
competition of tho character above men?
