Hope for th? State.
- We have been long ago convinced, and
have so expressed ourselves, that reform
ia oar wretched State Government is
attainable only through the Republican
party. The leaders mast be Republi?
cans, the movement mast originate in
that party, and be clearly Republican io
all its essentials. The reason of this,
briefly, is the prejudice of the black
pe opio against the Democratic party,
and the fear and distrust which has buen
instilled iato their minds against their
former owners on all questions of po?
litical action. Tho fulso and poisonous
doctrine whispered into their cars by
crafty me?, that tho white people are
their political enemies, bas taken firm
hold of their hearts. With this convic?
tion, and being, as a geaeral thing, una?
ble to reason like intelligent people,
they make arbitrary and irrational rules
of political oonduot for themselves, the
leading one of which is never to favor
any projeot lead or controlled by the
white people. It is a pity that this is
so. Did the black people ia the exor?
cise of their newly acquired rights of
citizenship display the sumo independ?
ence aad determine their party affilia?
tions by the same intelligent considera?
tions as the generality of white people
do, it would prove no leen b?n?ficiai to
them than to the cou a try. Their blind
adherence in a solid mass to any one po?
litical party cannot bat tell against them
ia the end. Their party cannot always
be ia the ascendant, and if they continue
to array themselves, without any notice?
able exceptions, against all that is com?
mendable ia government, aad choose dis?
honest men for their represeatativeB,
who plunder the communities ia which
they live, it may not be well for them in
the day that their minority shall come.
In ebort, we do not thiak it wise for
the colored people to. stake their rights
aad privileges apoa the success of any
oae political party, as they now are
doing. Still they will do it, and there?
fore it ia that we.cau. hope for.no ameli?
oration of our State affairs, except
through the party, to whioh they have
chosen to ally themselves, body.and soul.
"We have waited and suffered and been
plundered a long while. The present
State officials would have been hurled
from offioe auder a normal ooaditioo of
affairs two yeats ago; yes, aad seat to the
penitentiary to expiate their manifold
frauds and peculations. Indeed no peo?
ple,of average education and intelli?
gence would ever have entrusted such
mea with public offices at all. The balk
of them have thief stamped on their
very faces. But here they have been,
for four long, cruel years, like demons,
dealing destruction on all around and
laughing at the raia they made. We are
glad to believe .that the day of deli ver?
aneo draws nigh. That struggle within
the Bepublican racks to which only we
may look for immediate help has already
commenced; at least we believe so. At
a Republican meeting iu Abbeville, a few
days ago, Orr, after repeatiag the senae
leus tirade which he indulged ia here
about Grant's loveliness aad the Ka Klux
abominations, launched out ia a terrible
crusade against Scott, Moses, Neagle,
Parker, aad tho State Government gene?
rally. He declared war against them,
and there were none bold enough to take
np their defence. Earle, of Greenville,
who is the most able aad respectable Be?
pablioau ia that County, we learn, has
joined the standard of revolt against the
corruptions aad the infamies of the
ring. Mackey is to lead the columns
from the North-eastern seotion of the
State, aad ia the low ooaatry a wide?
spread disaffection has long been mani?
The chief causo of hope, however, is
that Grant and the Republican authori?
ties at Washington have poshed forward
and will sustain the opposition to Scott
& Co. This, we have reliable authority
for stating, ia the ease, It Staads to
reaBon, too, that it should be true.
Grant's administration is charged, aad
justly, with the humiliating condition of
things whioh exists ia the Southern
States, plaoed by reconstruction nader
Radical mle. Good and patriotio men
at tho North do not regard as trivial the
wholesale ruin of these States, which the
United States has expended billions of
treasure upon, and shed the blood of a
million men in order to preserve the
Union. Besides that, the conduct of
the Government to tho South has been
inhuman; and the condition of Sooth
Carolina, for instance, where the will of
Congress has been supreme, is a d jpg race
to the American, republic. The know?
ledge of these things is having its influ?
ence against Grant, aod turning the
.hope of the country to Greeley. With
ft desire to cheek this, and, perhaps, with
some sort of regret for tho mischief he has
caused, Qrant has issued bia flat thai the
thieves in South Carolina are to be in?
dulged no longer. Their merry daya are
over. They are a olog to the party and to
Grant. The latter is stripping for the
fight with the hewer of Chappaqua,
whom he is at last horrified to find a
moat powerful antagonist. He is on
slippery ground, anyway, and his rusting
armor bas many a broken and shattered
spot. Taken at such unavoidable dis?
advantages, he cannot afford to be
shouldered with the additional weight of
Scott, Neagle, Parker and Moses, with
their $12,000,000 of South Carolina
bonds stuffed in their pockets. Grant
sees sturdy old Horace, with his axe upon
bis shoulder, bearing down rapidly upon
him. He is in a critical condition. He
must shake off tbeeo dead weights that
hang about him, or else the day is lost.
Orr is the man to relieve bim, if any?
body can; so prance out, Orr, aud help
your ohief. We will obeer you this one
time, and beg that you will do your
devoir os a true knight, and when yon
get the dastards down, remember tho
people's plunder in their pockets and
make them disgorge.
THE JUBILEE.-The French Academy
once defined a crab to be "a small red
fish that walks backwards." Proud of
their definition, they took it to the
famous naturalist Cuvier for his approval
and any corrections he might moko.
"You are correct, gentlemen," said
Cuvier, "absolutely oorreot, with one or
two exceptions. The crab is not a fish,
it is not red, and it does not walk back?
ward." Very Bimilar to the Academy's
definition of a crab in its inappropriate?
ness, is tho name that the Great Boston
International Musical Jubilee has arro?
gated to itself. It ia "International" in
no proper sense of that word, "musical"
it certainly is not to any true lover of
music, and though it may be to the
Bostonians a jubilation, nobody but
they would think of calling it a jubilee.
It is simply "Great Boston" in its pre?
tentiousness, in its fuss and noise, and
in trying t,o, pass itself off for something
better tuan it really is. The whole affair
is a combination to glorify, enrich and
benefit Boston at the expense of other
people. The real masio in it is, to the
native of that oity, the pleasant rustle of
the bank notes of the "outside barba?
rians" who flock to her hotels, crowd
her restaurants, and pass their money
over tho counters of her stores.
SOUTHERN SECURITIES MORE ACTIVE.
The New York'Herald, of Wednesday, in
its money article, Baye:
The Southern State bonds were more
aotive, witb, in several features, a consi?
derable improvement. Parties from the
South say that the crops of cotton, wheat
and corn will prove unusually large this
fall, and that a more prosperous condi?
tion exists generally in the Southern
States. At the same time, a hope is
entertained that tho expected coalition
between the Liberals and Democrats will
restore the State administrations to tho
Demooratio party, in view of which tbe
so-called old bonds of the Southern
States will be certain to be most gene?
rously treated in all financial legislation.
The first indiaation of this state of feel?
ing was given in the old North Caroli?
nas, wbiob advanoed abont two per cent,
in two day's dealings, closing strong at
35@36. The reaction in the new South
Carolinas continued, and the July issues
sold at 31 but were subsequently of?
fered at 31.
MAY A MAN MAURY HIS BROTHER'S
WIDOW?-The Jewish Church, press and
public, in New York city, have been
scandalized by a marriage between a
German Jew of wealth and good connec?
tions and his brother's widow, a union
which, according to the Hebrew interpre?
tation of Mosaio law, is incestuous and
an unpardonable'sin. The parties were
both rioh and very muoh in love witb
each other, but an obstacle fixed genera?
tions ago by an orthodox European
synod stood in the way, and threatened
excommunication if they consummated
their vows in wedlock. Several rabbis
refused to unite them, and only when the
bride-groom equivocated and told Dr.
Huebsoh that be was a cousin of the
bride's first husband, would be solem'ze
their marriage. The near relatives aro
well enough pleased, and only tho organs
and the priests and defenders of the old
laws and traditions of Judaism ure espe?
cially put ont by it. The Jewish Times
refers to it as an incestuous marriage,
and severely criticises Dr. Huebsoh as
guilty of wilful complicity with the
parties or oriminal negligence.
A YOUNO LADY BURNED TO DEATH.
We learn tbat a young lady, abont fifteen
years of age, the daughter of Mr. John
Faulkenbury, of this County, was so se?
verely burnt a few days ago, that sho
lived but a short time*. She went to a
neighbors house for fire, and on ber re?
turn, by some means, her clothes caught,
and all efforts to put ont the blaze
proved ineffective, A youncrer sister
finally came to her rescue, but not until
the sufferer was BO seriously burned as to
result in her death.-Lancaster Ledger.
Mrs. Mary Jane L. Bishop, a wealthy
widow lady, about fifty years of ago, died
suddenly in New York, on the 26th.
Mrs. Bishop had long been of very in?
temperate habits, and it appeared in
evidenoe tbat she drank a gallon of bran*
dy every week, besides indulging exten?
sively in champagne and other liquors.
THE JEWS IN Ku UM AN IA.-The perse?
cution of the Jews ia the Roumanian
principalities is a disgrace to the civil?
ization of the age. The countries along
the shores of the Danube have for ceu
I tories made that region a favorite Jew?
ish centre. The result of the Crimean
war was supposed to be a gain to the
Jews. The treaty of 1856, and the sob
aequeot additional treaty sigaed by the
, coaventioa of 1858, made foll provision
for the religious liberty of all the Eu?
ropean subjects of the Saltaa. Article
.i? of the coaventioa of 1858 guarantees
equal liberty to all Cbristiaa creeds, with
the privilege of legislative extension to
ull other rites. In 1870, such were the
encouragements given in Roumauia, the
Israelites had increased to tho number
of 400,000, and tho synagogues at the
same dato numbered 170. It is said thal
in France, ubout that period, the Jews
did not exceed in number 100,000, and
that in the three kingdoms of England,
Scotland and Ireland, there wero not
over 45,000 of that unmixed race. lu
1858, Moldavia uud Wulluchia were
united under the common name of Rou
mania, and the rapid increase of the
Jewish population in the united princi?
palities, with their activity and growing
prosperity, became a source of trouble
to the Governmeut of Prince Charles.
The trouble, UH nil the world know?, has
continued uutil this day. It is said that
in no part of the v "rid uro the children
of Israel so porsooutod as they have been
in Roumauia. The British Government
and our owu have remonstrated in re?
gard to it, and now the British and Ita?
lian Governments have proposed a con?
ference of the great powers on the sub?
ject, and to debate also the propriety of
a direct allied pressure ou tho Roumani?
an Government to compel measures for
the executive repression of tho barbar?
ous outburst against the Jews in that
country. Prince Gortschakoff declines,
on behalf of Russia, being deterred by
apprehensions that the proposition viii
serve only to excite au agitation of tho
dreaded Eastern question. He agrees,
however, that the powers moro immedi?
ately interested shall address a joint note
to the Bonmanian Government demand?
ing an explanation of its intentions, ancV
a definition of the guarantees which
Prince Charles can offer for tho protec?
tion of the Jews in the future, and thus
awaken the Bucharest executive to a
sense of its official responsibilities.
Should tho Roumanian reply prove un?
satisfactory to tho cosignatories of the
note, the Emperor of Russia would pro?
pose a settlement of tho difficulty on the
basis of the treaty of 1858. The Prus?
sian Government is said to take the
same ground as Russia. It is to be
hoped, iu the interests of Immunity and
civilization, that such e pressure will be
brought to bear upon Roumauia as will
prevent the recurrence of barbarities.

WHAT THE BELIOIOUS PRESS SAYS.
The Golden Age (Theodore Tiltou) di?
lates upon what it calls "The Successful
Failure at Philadelphia," and draws a
parallel "between the two Republican
parties," to nae its own phraseology.
Says the Golden Age:
"Cincinnati, fresh from tho people,
initiated a long-needed movemeut of re?
form; Philadelphia, drawing its breath
from the publia offices, clamored like
claquera in n theatre fora ooutinuauce of
the Administration aud the re-appoint?
ment of its 50,000 paid stipendiaries.
Cincinnati deoiared for the one-term
priuoiple; Philadelphia wan us hushed ns
the grave concerning this central aud
main-spring measure of civil service re?
form. Cincinnati domanded that our
foreign policy should ask for nothing
that was not right, and submit to no?
thing that was wrong; Philadelphia, for?
getting this maxim of Jackson, connived
at the Alabama surrender, and gave this
ignominy the name of honor. Cincin?
nati protested against elevating the mili?
tary over the oivil law; Philadelphia en?
tertained itself with a picture of Grant
on horseback, as typical of the adminis?
tration which it seeks to maintain in
power. Ciuciunati denounced tho abuses
which the Government hus feared to in?
vestigate; Philadelphia was a pre-ar?
ranged mechanism, subordinating tho in?
dividual freedom of its delegates to
affect a unanimity which did not exist,
by au enginery which itself was one ol
the chief abuses of whioh tho Adminis?
tration has been guilty. Cincinnati wae
for universal amnesty; Philadelphia wae
for limiting this clemenoy. Cincinnati
denounced the distribution of public
offices among persons who had given
gifts to the President; Philadelphia offi?
cially represented these givers and re?
ceivers. Cincinnati denounced nepo?
tism; Philadelphia bandaged its eyet
into blindness to it. Cincinnati indicted
the Pr?sident as a violator of law
Philadelphia gave a sycophant's compli?
ment to his practical wisdom. Oinoin
nati proposes to noite the North aad thc
South oa tho basis of liberty, equality
aad fraternity; Philadelphia determines
to tear open afresh the healed wounds oi
tho two sections. Cincinnati is foi
peace; Philadelphia for war. Fellow
countrymen, choose between them."

"THOUGH ABSENT, NOT FORGOTTEN."
Tho sudden disappearance of President
Grant after the adjournment of Congress
seems to have raised quite a storm of
indignation, particularly among his
friends. Tho Washington Patriot, of
yesterday, gives us the following account
of the prevailing discontent in Wash?
ington,.- while the President disports
himself in thc "dog cart" ut Long
"The sudden departure of the' Presi?
dent from Washington, and his culpable
ueglect of public duty, have excited
much feeling among oven pronounced
Republicans, which some of them will
probably soon make known in a practi?
cal form. Various Senators and Repre?
sentatives, who bud claims to urge or
interests to promote, were postponed by
General Porter and other so-called mili?
tary 'secretaries,' upon the plea that thu
pressure of public business prevented
the President from hearing them then.
They were asked to await uutil Congress
should adjourn, when their representa?
tions could be better considered, and
when the President would be glad to
consult their wishes.
"Upon these conditions they agreed
to refrain from any urgent pressure, nud,
us was understood, in ucoordance with
the President's request. Accordingly,
when Congress did adjourn, these
'loyal' friends of the Administration
rushed to tho White House, supposing
they bad a great advantage over others
not in the secret. It is easy to imagine
their surprise upon discovering that the
President had taken the first train for
Long Branch-bad carried oil tbe Ad?
ministration with him, and left no one
to represent either at the Wbite House
but a door-keoprr, who did not 'think
they would return before next winter.'
Senator Logan, who had a special ap?
pointment, and who had just given in
his adhesion to Grunt, was virtuously in?
dignant at this treatment. Others,
whose fidelity had not been under suspi?
cion, refreshed their wrutb by curses
loud and deep. And others, still, came
away muttering tho name of Greeley, as
if that beut compressed thc idea of ap?
BEWARE OP SWINDLERS.-Tho Savan?
nah News has the following cautionary
remarks, which may be of much-service
to the people if heeded:
We would caution the readers of the
News against an organized company of
swindlers who have their headquarters
in New York, and have been for several
months past distributing circulars all
through tbe South, offering to arrange
mortgages, advance money, etc., on
reasonable and satisfactory terms. They
profess to control a very large capital,
and pretend to respectability. The usual
formular is gone through with after some
person has been induoed to correspond
with the liberal firm, in the hope of get?
ting a small loan, and he is invited to for?
ward 810 as a fee "for registration,"
when the amount desired will be imme?
diately sont. The money is mailed, and
that is the last ever heard of it. It is
astonishing after the frequent exposures
that have boen made of similar swindlers
that, are to bo found in this section, men
are credulous enough to entertain such
propositions a moment, yet we learn
that several persons in this vicinity have
been victimized by these "heathen
Chinese," and we make this mention in

Something new in this latitude is
promised at the next term of the Circuit
Court for the 8th circuit, to be held at
Anderson Court House, in tho shape of

THE POPE AND BISMARCK.-The Pope
received the members of the German
Literary Club, of Borne, on June 25,
and in the course of his remarks upon
the occasion made use of the following
language : " The persecution of Catholics
has commenced in Germany, but they
display courage under affliction, and
have notified the German Government
that the persecution of the church is
folly. The church, Baid the Holy Father,
remains triumphant. Wo huve asked
Priuce Bismarck how it is that the once
contented German Bishops have, accord?
ing to the expressed belief of the Ger?
man Government, been suddenly trans?
formed into dangerous conspirators. No
reply has yet beeu received. Let us
pray to our Father in Heaven that the
stone may fall that will complete the
overthrow of the colossus."
At the first reading of the bill directed
against the Jesuits in the German Par?
liament, June 14, the Federal Commis?
sary, Fricdberg, declared that tho law
was but provisional, and necessitated by
the dangerous opposition of the Order
of Jesus to the State. The measure was
not iu antagonism to the Roman Catho?
lic Church, and the Order of Jesus must
not, iu any way, bo identified with that
creed. The Federal Commissary desig?
nated ns kindred societies the Ligorians
and tho Frers Ignorant i ns, as well as two
Orders of School-fellows, which were re?
spectively under the French and Roman
authority. In the course of the debate,
Privy Councillor Wagner pointed out
that it was not Prussia, but the Roman
Catholic Church that bad originated the
quarrel. The ruliug party in that church
was tampering with German unity and
religious peace. Tho Jesuits were in
league with foreign powers against Ger?
many. A .'cording to diplomatic reports
tho French Jesuits were forming a Ro?
man Catholic league iu France, Italy,
Austria and Germany, and promoting
fanaticism among the lower classes,
trades unions aud societies. A part of
the German Jesuits had been won over
to this plan, and all such projects must

says: "Wo believe in Providential op?
portunities. One such is before us.
Not to seize it is to lose it. The South,

party, therefore, take tho South by one

twain as one? lu other words, will Bal?

tion is momentous, for on its settlement

in tho unbalanced scale of to-day. We

DUTCH HEINRICH'S PARTNER.-Jacob
Albrecht, the notorious bank thief, and
well known in thiscity as ono of "Dutch
Heinrich's" comrades, and an account of
whose singular escape from the Prussian
State prison at Moabit was given several
weeks ago, was re-captured recently by
the Prussian detectives in the small town
of Wittenberge, Province of Braden
burg, where he bad been concealed for
nearly a week in tho cottage of a peasant.
Wheu the detectives burst into tho room
where ho was hidden, he drew a revolver
and fired several shots at them, but with?
out effect. He wus speedily overpowered
and taken in irons to Berlin. lu his
possession were fouud several hundred
dollars in gold, a passport to tho United
States, and a large quantity of clothes.
He obstinately refused to give any in?
formation us to how he had escaped from
the Moabit prison, or who had aided
him in his daring flight. Even a diet of
bread and water and several other disci?
plinary penalties failed to elicit anything
from him. The criminal court of Berlin
added four years to tho four years' im?
prisonment for which he had originally
been sentenced for robbing the Boyal
Discount Company; and he was then
taken baok to Moabit. Daring the first
six months of his confinement here
Albrecht will bo chained to the wall.

FOURTH OF JULY REGULATIONS.-We
took occasion, in Thursday's issue, to
refer to tho necessity of action on the
part of tbe City Council to prevent the
dangerous ase of pistols, fire crackers
or other explosive materials, within the
city limits, and principally on Main
street, pu the Fourth of July and Christ?
mas. Since then, a contemporary has
taken up the subject, and produces evi?
dence of damage to property by the care?
less uso of fire-arms ou such occasions.
There should be an ordinance forbid?
ding the firing of combustibles in any
street in the city. We hope that the
authorities will take thc matter in hand,
and afford all necessary protection to
persons and property.
PHONIXIANA.- Take her up tenderly,
lift her with care-None know how dear?
ly she paid for her hair.
Relative beauty-A- pretty cousin.
No man has a right to do as he pleases
unless be pleases to do right.
The ceusus credits Muskegon, Michi?
gan, with 5.G02 inhabitants, and she
has now but 100 places where liquor is
sold. Columbia can beat that.
An up-train-A short skirt.
Tho Paris Pairie learns that "Mon?
sieur Greeley, the great American farm?
er, was elected President of the United
States at Cincinnati, and will be in?
stalled at Washington in November."
We perceive in a daily paper an ad?
vertisement whioh informs the publie
that boarding for the summer can be ob?
tained at "a large and shady brick gen?
tleman's residence in the country." We
should think that this offer would be
very attractive to persons who want to
live with such a man.
