Tile Growing Strength of the Cine Kn ital I
The nomination of Horace Greeley for
President took every one by surprise,
bat this surprise soon gave way to car
nest and enthusiastic approbation. Of
Qratz Bro iyn, there is no need to say
much-a more acceptable man to the
South and West could not possibly have
been selected, nor was his nomination in
the least unexpected. But general und
warm as has been the acclamation which
has bailed the name of Gratz Brown, the
great Missouri reformer, it is perfeotly
plain that it is the "old white bat"
whioh has lent Buch wondrous power of
popular enthusiasm to the tioket. Et
was Schurz, if wo remember aright, who,
a short while after the convention had
settled apon Greeley ss the standard
bearer of the liberal party, remarked of
the comparative strength of Greeley and
Adams with tho people: "Adams would
have been as strong, and probably
stronger, upon the first announcement
of his being a candidate than at any sub?
sequent time; Greeley, on the other
hand, will not be so strong at first, but
will grow in popnlarlarity day by day
until November." His words as to
Greeley have been thus far fully con?
firmed. The enthusiasm for the ticket
has spread like a oontagion among the
Demoorats, and there are evidences, too,
of its rapidly increasing strength with
It is diffionlt to account dearly and
rationally for this extraordinary strength
displayed by Mr. Greeley-the wonder
' ful hold which his name has taken upon
the popular heart. It is, doubtless, to
no small degree, attributable to the
quaintness and originality of his charac?
ter. But it has other stronger and
more enduring foundations. The peo?
ple are sick of Grant and the jagged
f military despotic caste he has impressed
upon the Government. Greeley is
Grant's antithesis-a civilian in the
fullest, trucbt sense of the word. Grant
is a stupid, stolid, unfeeling, say-nothing
sort of man. Greeley is a man of deep
convictions, an earnest, able thinker, an
active worker, a sinoere philanthropist.
Grant said let ns have peace; Greeley
will let us have peace. Grant affected
to borve no policy. The truth was, he is
too indolent and sluggish to think or to
act. He was content, or pretended to
be content, to exercise his executive
functions as a sort of high sheriff to
Greeley will be a President, an admi?
nistrative officer, of wide knowledge, of
matured thought, capable of valuable
suggestions to the legislative body, and
gaided in all his acts by an enlightened
patriotism. Indomitable energy is a
marked characteristic of Mr. Greeley's
nature. We fee) convinced, and doubt?
less others are impressed with the same
idea of him. that, as President, Horace
Greeley would make himself thoroughly
conversant with the condition of tho
country, the wants of the people, the
ubuseB of Government, Seo., and would
be untiring in his efforts to supply tho
one and correct the other. No set of
public robbers, as now rule South Caro?
lina, would receive the sympathy from
him that they have from Grant. If he
erred at all-if he transcended constitu?
tional limits in any way-the extraordi?
nary step would bo taken in tho interests
o' gpod government and tho common
welfare, not to proteot politioal vampires
and aid them to utterly crush an already
Bot, aside from Mr. Greeley's personal
characteristics, there is that in tho spirit
of the Liberal Republican movement
itself whioh would stir the publio heart
in favor of its nominees. Liberal Re?
publicanism means, first of all, reconci?
liation and a restoration of fraternal feel?
ing between the two lately warring sec?
tions of tho Union. Secession is dead,
slavery has been wiped away and there is
now nc further bone of contention to
breed strifo and wrangling between the
sister States-nothing except the bitter
memories and heart-barnings of the an?
tagonism that is past, whioh have been
kept alive by Radicalism. Good people
North and Sonth desire an end of this;
they wish a genuine re-union of the
States. Not a ro-nnion foroed by bayo?
nets, but voluntary, foundod upon reci?
procal interests and mutual respect and
esteem. This is the peculiar work of
Liberal Republicanism. Neither the as?
cendancy of tho Radical nor of the De?
mocratic party can effeot what is wanted.
They are the parties of the war, their
rivalries and jealousies brought on the
war, and have kept its dying embers
fanned sinoe the cessation of actual
strife. There are principles of the
Demooratio party, each as States rights
and free trade, that will live as long as
Republican Government remains in this
country. Bat as parties, both tbe Radi*
oil and Democratic parties ought to die
and mako way for new parties and new
issues, founded apon the new condition
of things. They cannot be adapted
successfully^ and satisfactorily to new
questions. The Radical party, from the
fatness of over-fed power, has grown
fotid with corruption, and insolent and
tyrannical from strength. The Dame
oratio party has the burdon of too many
issues mado and lost, to live vigorously
again. ? now party is wanted, and that
is tho Liberal Republican party, which
is spreading throughout the country,
and will elect tho next President-Horace

ARRESTED FOR MURDER.-In thu month
of Jane, 1865, a man named John W.
Meeks, living in tho neighborhood of
Breazeale's Mills, in this County, disap?
peared from home quito suddenly, and
many supposed that there was foul play
connected with his unexpected disap?
pearance. Othors conjectured that he ]
had gone away of his own accord for
reasons of a domestio character. The
circumstances had entirely passed out of
the public mind until a short time ago,
when it was whispered around in the
neighborhood that thero was positivo
proof in existence that the missing man
was actually murdered. His friends bo?
gan an investigation of these rumors,
and tho result was tho arrest of a colored
man named Wm. Brock, who was sup?
posed to know the facts connected with
tho murder of Meeks. His disclosures
led to au examination of a certain loca?
lity, where ho alleged tho body was in?
terred. Tho remains were fouud at the
point designated by Brook, and an in?
quest was hold a few days ago by War?
ren D. Wilkes, Esq., Trial Justice and
acting Coroner, resulting in a verdict to
the effect that Meeks had been munlored
on the - day of June, 1S65, and that
Wm. M. Davenport and D. K. Brea
zeale, Jr., were the principals, and Mr.
Harvin Yandiver and his son, Robert
Vandivor, with tho colored mau Brocjc
I aforesaid, were accessories to the homi
Upon tho evidence elicited at the
coroner's inquest and the verdiot ren?
dered, as above stated, warrants wero is?
sued for the suspected parties, and on
Monday last. Wm. M. Davenport and
Wm. Brock were arrested and lodged in
jail to answer the charge against thom
respectively. It is understood that the
Vandivers have recently fled the coun?
try, and Brezoale moved away from this
section five or six years ago. The story
of the murder presents a shocking and
brutal aspect, as we are informed that
the testimony sets forth that Meeks was
shot by one of the parties, and in at?
tempting to muke his esoape in this
wounded condition, he was overtaken by
another, who dealt him suoh heavy blows
with the gan as to take his life. In jus?
tice to Mr. Davenport, we will state that
he declares his entire innooenoe of the
murder, and although opportunities to
make his esoape have not been wanting
since the grounds of suspicion were
made public against him, there has been
no attempt on his part to elads the of?
ficers of the law.
Since the above was put in type, Mr.
Harvin Yandiver has been arreuted by
the authorities and lodged in the jail at
this place. We learn that he corrobo?
rates the story of the colored man, Brook,
upon whose testimony, in the main, the
jory of inquest roached the strange facta
and oironoQBtances, whioh have BO long
remained hidden from the public view.

A Vaux DISASTROUS FIBS.-It gives us
pain to chronicle the fact that on Friday,
the 10th inst., the dwelling house of Mr.
Wm. A. Watson, on Mine Creek, was
ontirely destroyed by fire. Mr. Watson
is a son of Col. Samuel J. Watson, and
his homo is, or rathor was, the old Billy
Mobley place, some three miles North?
west of Dry Creek Church. The kitchen,
bain, smoke-house, crib, atables, and
two other out-houscs, were also burned.
Furniture, corn, fodder-almost every?
thing, in faot-shared tho same terrible
fate. Mr. Watson's loss is said to be
upwards of $4,500. How the fire occur?
red is not definitely known, but it is
thought was accidental. No insurance.

Hon. A. J. Ramier, President of the

"the objeot of whioh, as set forth there?
in," is to call together the Legislature.
Now, sir, I protest against this "pro?
posed" call. ?
First. There is no exigency, financial
or otherwise, that demands the call.
Second. It will increase the burthen of
the State, whose Treasury is now empty.
Third. There bas already been a pro?

one, whioh will not in any way relieve
the financial condition of the State, and
if the object of the circular referred to
bo aarried ont, it will be tho. lust feather

For the above aud other reasons, I
protest against tho re-nssembling of the

Sin: I have received your note of tho
11th inst., enclosing a copy of n call for

In reply, I havo to state that I respect?
fully declino to sign tho cull.
In the first placo, I doubt the legality
of the action of the General Assombly in
providing for a special or adjourned ses?
sion. After a concurrent resolution
fixing a day for adjourning sine die had
beou adopted, and a motion made to re?
consider it, aud that motion laid on tho
tablo, I submit that tho power of the
General Assembly in the matter wus ex?
hausted, and that the subsequent pro?
ceedings were without force or authority.
In the next place, I donbt tho will or
power of the General Assembly to meet
"tho present exigency," in a way or
spirit to servo the intores ts of either the
Republican party, or the people of tho
State. And finally, I doubt tho pro?

To which tho Columbia Union (Re?
publican) adds, by way of comment:
The legislative tricksters are still at
work devising plans by whioh to get the
General Assembly together again June
10. The object of the scheme is so
transparent that no one need err in ar?
riving at a successful solution of this
problem. The sale of delinquent lands
takes place the first of June, and these
cormorants think there will be afforded
them another opportunity to draw upon
the Treasury after the lands are sold;
hence tho meeting. We warn the peo?
ple in every County against this move?
ment, and wo hope they will take occa?
sion to spot every man whose name ap?
pears upon the cull. The Legislature
could do no earthly good if it were to
assemble, even if it were made up of
good men, as it is not-with a few ho?
norable exceptions-as there is nothing
whioh can be done that will afford relief
nntil after the collection of taxes already
levied. If the Legislature were in ses?
sion whon these taxes are collected, there
is no question in the mind of any one
man as to what would become of the
money. Let tho peoplo instruct the
Representatives of their respective Coun?
ties to remain at homo, and not attempt
to moddlo in any way with thc financial
condition of tho State. Thoy cannot
holp it, while they may do it infinite
AN UNFOBTUNATE AND FATAL ACCI?
DENT.-On Friday last, William Scurry,
a oolored man, living on the plantation
of Mr. Walton, in the neighborhood of
Philippi Church, on attempting to dis?
mount from his mule, the mule became
frightened and ran off at great speed,
dragging the unfortunate man by ono
leg, whioh was fastened in the gear, a
distanoe of some 200 yards, before other
parties could check the mule. Scurry
was severely bruised, and only lived
about two hours. On Sunday Trial Jus?

THE TORNADO AND ITS HAVOC
(Vednesilay night, ?boat half-past 10
>'olock, a terrible tornado passed over
mr city. The direction from whence it
?ame was North by North-east. Its
laration was brief, bnt sven in those
ow moments its devastation was fearful.
Che damage to property waa immense,
md time aod money will havo to be
avishly used to make repairs. Personal
njury was miraculously confined to a
lolitary case, aa far as we have been ablo
The heaviest loss was the damage to
he State lion se; which seems to be the
nost prominent object for tornadoes,
vhioh pass over Columbia, to vent their
orce upon. The storm struck the
??orlh-west corner with all its fury, and
oiled off thc tin roofing on thut side, in
wo rolls, as though it had been merely
acked down. Gae roll was deposited
>n tho other nido of tho building,
lireclly to the South from whence it
md been lifted, and the other roll was
jluwu to tho South-west, and landed
lear tho shed beneath which the stone?
cutters were daily employed. This shed
xna also blown down, and tho plank
?cattered in every direction. The huge
imbers to which the tin roofing was
tttuched were hoisted from their places
ind hurled through the ceiling into thc
lull of tho House of Representatives
jflow^ where the durango to furniture,
mob as chairs, desks, &C, was consider?
able. This demolition of legislative
conveniences was confined exclusively
.o tho furniture in tho Northern portion
if the hall. Some five or six desks
.rere completely ruined, while most of
hem had tho ornamental ledges broken
ir knocked oiT. A large number of
chairs were utterly ruined, while many
>f them were rendered useless for tho
?ccommodation of our legislators,
he backs having been knocked off them,
.hereby rendering a leaning back for
i short nap out of tho question.
L'he number of desks and chairs that
escaped destruction is remarkable, con?
quering the size of and the distance
:rom which the timbers were hurled
jpuu them. Several of the globes at
ached to ono of the handsome chande
lera in the House of Representative!
chamber were broken. The lorgesl
chandelier had been removed Borne time
lince; but had it been again suspended
ts was the intention, it would have beer
lemolisbed. The brick, timber, plaster
fcc, which fell on the floor, did som?
lamage to the carpeting. A large beam
:ame down on its end, and went throng!
.be space between the rounds of s chair
ind tilted up on the other end, elevating

)f which was laid over on the tin tha
?.as undisturbed, and the other laid 01
the edge of the Western end of . th
building-half on and half off. And
while writing of this, we would suggee
to those who have the State House i;
their keeping, that this piece of chimne
is in a precarious situation, and likely t
fall at any moment; and as the publi
highway through that portion of th
capitol grounds is greatly frequented, :
is liable to cause a serious or fatal ace
.lent. Tho jar caused by tho fallin
brick, lumber and other building matt
rial, knocked off the stucco work on tb
ceiling above tho chandelier in the Ext
cutive office, and did Uko injury to ti
ceiling in an adjoining chamber. It

his end of the building, one of whi
vas used as a cooking apartment and t
?thor ns a bed-room. The latter was <
?upied by Mr. Clifford Cooper, who v
n his bod at the time of tho accide
asleep, and the storm hurled a large
quantity of brick, plaster and laths upon
bim. His esoape from instant death was
truly miraculous, as he lay immediately
beneath the descending debris. He was
severely, if not seriously burt, as he was
struck upon the face, head, abdomen,
breast, and other portions of his body,
bf falling bricks. The roof at this end
of the building was not injured; the
brick wall having been blown completely
from beneath it, inwardly. The sup?
ports to the piazza at the same end of the
bouse were blown away. The walls of
the entire building are badly sprung, and
tho door and window frames have all
been sprung from their proper positions;
thus rendering the house so unsafe that
tho occupants were deserting it yester?
day morning with all possible rapidity.
Several ladies fled the house at the ap?
proach of the storm, and Mr. Cooper's
family had recently left the city on a
visit; thus, probably, avoiding a fatal
Fences were prostrated in many por?
tions of the city by tho wind, and others
demoli8ded by falling trees. Among
them, we notice part of that aronnd the
Steward's Hall lot, the rear of the fence
enclosing the Alms House grounds, the
new fonco in course of erection around
the lot on which the seminary of the
Sisters of Mercy formerly stood,'a por?
tion of that surrouuding the grounds
attached to Dr. Fisher's residence, and
Trees were blown down and uprooted
in every direction. Some were riven
in twain, and brunches hurled for long
distances. Among the trees destroyed
were some beautiful sugar-berry and
shady oaks, which bad received great
attention since the replanting after the
fire of 18G5, and bade fair to be beauti?
ful ornaments to our streets.
We learn also of the destruction of a
groat quantity of window glass. One
residence, that occupied by United
States Claims Commissioner Farmele,
lost forty panes of glass.
Some slight injury was done to Mrs.
H. Lyons' residenco.
Wo learn that the watchman in the
Presbyterian Church steeple scented the
danger from afar, and deserted bia post
at the first indication of the approach?
Many little anecdotes have been told
ns of the timid, the exoited, and eren
tho brave, both male and female. Some
held their windows, some ran into the
street, others covered np their heads
with pillows, while others crawled under
tho bedding and bedsteads. All these
will do to laugh at, now that the danger
is past; but the moment of the tornado
was truly terrible.
