The FNgrai of tn? Cincinnati Move?
Day by day, os the time appointed for
the meeting at Oinoinnati draws nearer,
encouraging responses are being made
by liberal Republicans in the varions
States. There is now no doubt but that
a marked preponderance of tho indivi?
dual integrity, ability and personal in?
fluence of the Republican party is heart?
ily in sympathy with the movement for
reform. If, indeed, the representative
men of a party, the men of intellect and
probity, that originate every political
party, and direct and control its action
ontil, from excess of power, it becomes
corrupt, and honorable statesmen are
discarded for time-serving politicians
and unscrupulous demagogues-if, in
other words, thoae who really sustain
.the declared principles of a party may
be justly considered as forming that
party-thea of a surety it may, with
truth and propriety, be said that tho
genuine Republican party will hold its
Convention at Cincinnati.
What array is it possible that the
GrantiteB can muster at Philadelphia to
compare, in point of character and ear?
nest patriotism, with Schurz, Trumbull,
Greeley, Sumner, Davis, Brown, Cox
-and Chose? The most prominent men
at Philadelphia will be Butler, Mortou
and Conkling, who, to the distinguished
men named above, stand, in point of
Ability, like pigmies to giants, and
in oharaoter, about like Ulysses Grant
to the "great and good" Washington.
This ia so apparent, it is so unquestiona?
bly true, that the intellectual and moral
strength of the Republican party dis?
favors the re-election of Grant; that the
Mew York Herald, the cringing and
fawning advooate of Grant, dubs him
the people's candidate, as contra dis?
tinguished from a party candidate. The
"intelligent masses," it says, form a
more just eatim?te of a publio man's
fitness for position than his political
associ?tes, and the masses are satisfied
i and pleased with Grant. There is no
denying that Grant is extremely popular
with the masses; but we take it that the
cause of this popular admiration ia
directly the reverse of that which the
Herald assigns. It is simply beoanse the
masses, as a rule, are not intelligent; be?
cause they do not know Grant; are not
sensible of his selfishness; his nepotism;
his ill-oonoealed avarice; his bestiality,
and his official incapacity, which has
turned against him every honest Repub?
lican who has had opportunity to wit?
ness his daily exhibition of snob de?
testable qualities. To th? masses of the
Northern people Grant is only known
SB the great chieftain of the Union
armies, and, as .snob, they natu?
rally admire him, and i are prone
to invest him with tho like lovable and
magnanimous characteristics that so en?
dears the memory of Washington to the
hearts of the American people. They
are in blissful ignorance, the majority ol
the people, of Grant's conduct since hie
occupation of the White House. Ab
sorbed in their daily business avocations,
the "intelligent masses" have paid but
little attention to Grant's administra?
tion, and consequently know nothing ol
him. His popularity is based solelj
upon his fortuitous connection with.thc
successful termination of the Confede?
rate war; but whon the veil shall be up
lifted, and the enormities, tho iniqui?
ties, the profligacy, the corruption and
the oppression of tho South, which have
marked the present Administration,
shall have been impressed upon thc
publio mind; when the halo of mili?
tary glory that now olouds the public
view of Grant aball have been dispelled
and he disclosed to popular guzo, in ul
the naked deformity of the loathsome
monster that he is; when those wh(
know him as he ?B-men of undoubted
veracity ?nd patriotic devotion, lik?
Schurz, Trumbull and others-shall dc
piot him in his true colors, there will bi
a revulsion of popular feeling towardi
Grant, and the "intelligent masses" wil
estimate him aa they should. The bal
oommenoed last night, in New York
where Trumbull and Sohurz were invitee
to address a meeting of liberal Republi
oans, at Cooper Iustituto. We expec
to hear that a large and enthusiastic nu
dionce wore gathered on that occasion
and that an impulse will bo given th
anti-Grant movement, which, gathering
strength as it goes, will, in Novembe

Valuable Properly for Bal?.
There will be found iu our advertising
columns notice of the sale of a very valu?
able tract of land in Bickens Go un ty.
The sale will take .place, under order of
court, on sales-day (the tiret Monday) in
; May. Besides the intrinsic value of tho
I land, the fine improvements upon it, in
the way of a commodious dwelling
house, ont-bnildings, etc., a fine tan?
yard, said to be the best in the State, in
successful operation, Sec., there is that in
the location of the property whioh
should make it a highly desirable ac?
quisition. Picken? Cou o ty is probably
the most healthful of any portion of the
State. The bracing and invigorating
mountain air, the high table lands, and
the abundance of pare and deliciously
o 5 ol water, serves to make thut section a
most oharmingsummer resort. Thereis
an abundance of game there, too-such
aa deer, pheasants, ?o.-and the streams
are stocked with a bountiful supply of
the mountain trout, than whioh there is
nowhere to be fonnd a more delicately
flavored lieh. The property, which is
known as the Cruikshank tan-yard, is
situated on the Air-Line Bailroad, and
within easy access of the growing and
prosperous town of Greenville, and like?
wise of tho thriving village of New
Piokeus. This sale offers a fine opportu?
nity for some Northern or Western
grazier to make an excellent investment.
Stock raising, even on tho limited
Boile which the native land-owners there
are enabled to carry it on, is a most re?
munerative business-paying immeasur?
ably greater profits, at least, than cotton
planting in the lower Counties of the
State. There is a plentiful and luxuri?
ant growth of grass and other pasturage
in the fertile valleys and along the banks
of the numerous creeks and brooklets.
Frnit-growing, too, is largely engaged
io, and pays well. Peaches are growr.
there to perfection, and apples from thal
section, of the rarest and finest quality,
are brought down in wagons to the lo wei
and adjoining Counties, and gives em?
ployment and support to hundreds o:
people. The inhabitants of Piokecs an
a quiot, orderly and industrious class
and a homicide, or even a violent assaul
and battery, are evils but rarely experi
enced in that peace-loving community
In every way, indeed, Pickens and tin
adjoining mountain Counties are tb?
moBt delectable localities in the State.
The Baltimore ?'nu gives an acoonnt o
the extensive damage by the wind, rail
and lightning, in that city, on Tuesday
last, and concludes as follows:
The storm had a fearful effeot upoi
tho crowds whioh filled the tents of th
circos and menagerie at the Belair Mar
ket lot. At one time, almost a panii
was created among the hundreds of men
women and children who were present
The rain came in at tba flies and soilei
many a bonnet, and drove some of th
spectators in the circus tent from thei
seats. As the storm roso, tho wind cam
driving in, swelling the canvas like
huge balloon, fairly lifting it, and threat
ening an instantaneous collapse. C
course, there was general alarm, but a
the rain was coming dowu in perfec
sheets, it was bettor to romain than t
brave the storm outside. The perform
ance, however, continued without intel
ruption; but towards the dose, the ea
citemont was intense, heightened by th
noise of the creaking ropes, the cries c
tho women and children hurrying to an
fro, the thunder and vivid lightninj
and the fearful-looking beasts in thei
cages excited by the uuusual commotior.
Many persons left before the perfora
ance was over, and some hurriedly oref
uuder the canvas out into the hine
darkness, bewildered by the sudde
transition from tho glare aud exoitemet
within. Hundreds of people took refng
temporarily under tba Belair Markt
sheds, nearly all of them more or lot
drenched aud uucomfortublc, separate
from their companions or children, au
anxious only to get home.

Tho Hell-Gate Improvement?.
The work of removing the obstruc?
tions at Hell-Gate, whioli was begun
about two y oar a ago, has been vigoro UBIJ
?arriad forward with bat trifling inter*
rnptiou, and will, it ia now estimated, be
oom ploted within a year and a half.
165,000 cu bio yards of rook were to? be
removed from the river, and of thia
amount at least 42,000 oubio yards have
already been taken out, About 240men
are now employed in the work, nearly
all of whom are Cornish miners of long
experience. A mnoh larger number were
i innerly employed, but the introduction
of the diamond drill and the increased
use of. machinery iu all branches of the
labor bas permitted a great reduction of
the working force. A hundred of the
workmeu were recently discharged.
The immenae bed of rook is now per?
forated by sixteen tunnols aud seven
coucoutrio galleries, the floor line of
which is thirty-two feet below tho level
of the river at mean low tide. It was
originally designed to make the channel
but twenty-five feet in depth, but subse?
quently it waa determined to render it
perleotly safe for vessels of tho largest
draught. The average height of the
tunnels and galleries is twenty-two feet,
and their width sixteoath, leaving a roof
from seven to teu feet thick, supported
by numerous pillars. The length of the
extreme gallery is GOO feet, and of the
grand tunnel 212 }A feet. There will ul?
timately bo twenty eight tunnel head?
ings, somo of which will extend 375 feet.
The work of boring is done wholly by
machinery, tho laborers serving only to
trim and dress tho rock after the rougher
work has been executed, and to perform
the operations conueoted with blasting.
Of the six drills used, two aro diamond
pointed drills und four Burleigh steel
percussion drills. Tho diamond drill is
the invention of Rodolphe Leschot, u
French engineer, und was first used iu
thu construction of the Mout Cenis tun?
nel, but is now worked by improved ma?
chinery under American patents. The
two used at Hell Gate wore introduced
last October, and have proved so satis?
factory that three moro will be added iu
a few weeks. This drill consists of a
hollow diso an iuch and-a-half iu diame?
ter, the rim of which is studded with
twelve bits of black carbon. Attached
to an iron pipe of the same thickness, it
is propelled by compressed air at a pres?
sure of six pounds per square inch, aud
outs its way through the hardest rock
with marvellous rapidity. The motion
is rotary and the number of revolution!!
750 per minute. Unlike percussion
drills, it receives no wear except from
friction, and hence isoonstautly in work?
ing order, and needs no sharpening.
Forty-four feet and four inohes have
been tunneled by this drill in eight
hours, through a mass of granite und
quartz. By screwing on additional
pieces of pipe it can be propelled in one
direction to an indefinito extent, but foi
blasting purposes it is seldom driver
further than fifteen feet. Occasionally,
however, through tho intervention of t
new process in blasting, it is expedien?
to continue a tunnel of this charade.]
for a long distance, thereby effecting i
great saving of time. Saud or clay ii
then rammed into the boro until it ii
nearly full, to act as a recoil block to th<
charge, and tho rock is blusted sectioi
All the blasting ut Hell Gate is dom
by nitro-glycerine, and has been so care
fully managed that not au accident hu
yet occurred. The nitro-glycerine ii
mado into cartridges from eight to fif
toon inohes in diamoter, and boldiuj
from four to eight ounce's. They an
coated with a glutinous oompositioi
which effectually protects them fron
water. When a blast is made, a littli
tube of fulminate is attached to tin
cartridge aud a spark transmitted to i
through a wire couneoting with an eleu
trie battery. Though n largo number o
cartridges aro often discharged in sue
cession with great rapidity, they an
never fired at once, as tho vibration ii

roof, opeuiog scams for tho admission o
The explosions uro of tremondoin
foroe, shattering the rock into fragment
of a size conven ion t for removal. Then
are piled on cars drawn by mules, run
nitig ou iron tracks, which are laid ii
all the tunnels, and convoyed to tb
shaft, whore they uro hoisted up by
steam derrick. Tho masses airead,
taken out form two immense embank
monts on tho river front.
A bnilding near the mouth of th
shaft coutains threo large steam boiler
and five compressors, tho latter furnish
ing tho motivo power for the drills. I
working tho compressors, lubricating oi
is now used iustead of water, thereb
avoiding tho formation of icu in th
pipes during tho cold weather. Near 1>
is n powerful steam pump, which drain
all thc tunnels comparatively dry throug
pipes radiating from ita baso.
Bcforo blasting it is necessary to us
great care in ascertaining tho line of rt
sistauce and quality of tho rock, 'MC
is chiefly composed of granite, quart
and gneiss. The strata embrace a ?i M
variety of minerais, however, mcludinp
besides various metallic deposits, veit
of decomposed feldspar that aro ns so:
as day. Tho testing is dono with th
diamond drill, which in two iustuuet
struck sand and water after borin
twenty-eight and thirty-four foot ri
spootivoly, rendering it necessary t
abandon blasting in that direction, au
to have tho bores tightly plugged iq
In opening tuunol heading No. 3, a sei
tion of rook was struck BO full of sean
that tho water poured through tho roc.
at the rate of 600 gallons per minuti
This was effectually remedied by coi
strncting a massive schilt of timbo
oakum and Roman cement, fourtee
feet in length by twelve in width.
The work is oarriod forward almo
constantly night and day, tho mon boin
divided into gangs which relievo cac
other nt regular intervals. It is execute
under tho supervision of Major-Genen
John Newton, of the United States eng
peer corpa, who planned it from the be
Sinning. The superintendent in immo?
late charge is G. 0. Beitheimer. an en?
gineer of wide experience in varions
countries, who bas devoted himself
especially to work of this kind.
When the rook is at length completely
honeycombed, and nothing remains but
the roof, its supporting pillars and the
outer walls, it will be mined with 7,000
pounds of nitro-glycerine, which is
equal in explosivo power to 70,000
pounds of gunpowder. All the oharges
will be connected by wires with au elec?
tric battery in the office of tho superin?
tendent, when, at a given signal, it is
confidently ezpooted that the whole vast
mass will be blown iuto atoms, which
will be ?utirnly removed fiom tho bed of
tho river.-New York Evening Post.
CONSEQUENCES OF THE LATE RAID.-As
ooo of the effects of the late raid into
our County, wo have beard of an in?
stance, so less true than amusing, of a
citizen actually plowing with a saddle
OJ his horse, and the fence thrown down
in several places, ready ut any moment
to cut and run. While this may bo
fanny, to tho raiders, nud cveu laughable
to us, it is nevertheless a premonition of
death to tho country. Nor is it sur?
prising that citizens should stund thus
ready to decamp, when indiscriminate
arrests have been made-without war?
rants, aud ou the most flimsy aud uure
liablti testimony-ou tho mere affidavit
of a negro who bas been absent from
tho County siue.n 180'J, aud not here at
the time tho alleged violence was com?
mitted; warrants changed by deputies to
serve their purposes, irotn one name to
another, and unsuspecting persons, con?
scious of their own innocence, seized
aud summarily thrown into prison.
Does Chief Marshal Wallace sanction
such conduct m his deputies? Surely
not. Is there uo redress-is there no
help for a people thus persecuted aud
oppressed? O t?mpora! 0 mores!
It is confidently believed that not le?s
thuu 500 citizens Lave fled thu County,
aud possibly tho State. Our agricultu?
ral interests are desperately sufferiug,
and if the present procedure in arrest?
ing does uot cease at once, we aro a
ruined people. Just think of it-500
plows, at this season of tho year,
stopped aud rusting iu the mold! Who
are to make bread for the women aud
children? how aro they to live, if the
meu, their natural protectors, are nil
driven away? And bow, too, aro the
negroes to subsist without the aid of the
white man, dependent, as they aro, upon
the land owner for soil to work, stock,
implements, indeed, everything with
which to carry on a farm? Without the
fruits of the earth, we must all perish,
and it follows, us a matter of course,
that as the white suffers, so must the ne?
gro. What posBible advantage, then,
oan accrue to our oppressors by this
oppression? Do they seek utter annihi?
lation-our utter destruction, full, final
and complete? It really seems so.
Whoever may he responsible for vio?
lence, let the guilty oues be caught and
punished us their crimes may require;
but must tho innocent atone for the
guilty? must whole communities bo sus?
pected aud made to suffer for tho mis?
deeds of a few? Such theory and such
practice is ubsurd in au eulightenod ago,
and suited only for the darkest ages of
tho world.-Laurenscille Herald.

vited public attention to a new Vegetablo Re?
storative, and solicited a trial of :'ts merits as
a remedy for indigestion, biliousness, fever
and agu J, debility, nervous diBorlers, rheu?
matism, and all complaints requiring invigo?
rating and regulating troatiuent. In this
quiot, unpretentious way, PLANTATION BIT?
TERS was introduced to tho world. It was a
success from the beginning. All that, was
claimed for it as a tonio, a corrective and an?
tidoto to m&lariouB fever, was found to bo

sales of this articlo amouuted to over ono

demand had swolled to live millions. 'J he
annual consumpti u of tho Bitters has now
roached tho almost incredible aggregate of
six millions of hollies, and for every bottle
sold a oopy of tho Illustrated Medical Annual.

$150,000, is given away. A113J
