COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Morning. Joly 3, 1872.
Tile World Veering Hound.
Oar telegraphic despatches, yesterday,
announced that the New York World had
declared itself convinced that the nomi?
nation or endorsement of Greeley and
Brown, at Baltimore, was a foregone
conolusion, and intimated that its oppo?
sition would cease, whether it concluded
to advocate their election or not. We
have been at a IOBS to understand the
motives of the World in its malignant
attacks upon Mr. Greeley, and in its in?
consistent political tone generally, since
the action of the Cincinnati Convention.
It ranks high among the ablest journals
in the United States, and has been for
years the acknowledged chief organ of
the Democratic party. The South has
had no more apparently sinoere and
earnest friend, nor Radicalism a more
determined foe, than this great journal.
As for ourselves, we had learned to
feel for it un admiration close akin to
reverence. For crushing argument, keen
satire, pithy humor, and graceful scho?
larly style, it need yield the palm to
none of the leading metropolitan jour
aals. We had willingly attributed to it,
too, until its late tergiversations, a sin?
cere and unselfish patriotism. It is not
pleasant to have this oonfidence shaken,
?nd wo were loth to think bad things of
the World. Bat this is not the first time
that the World hos offended, and at?
tempted to stab its friends in the back.
In the campaign of 1868, when every
nerve should have been stretched by a
true Democrat to do all in his power to
eleot Seymour and Blair, the World de?
serted its colors in the hottest of the
conflict, and clamored for new leaders,
when it waa evident that its revolt could
only result in a panio among the already
The oourse of the World then was
?8 inexcusable as it is now. It could
have done no possible good; it might
have done great harm, and it was ex?
plainable upon only one of two hypo?
theses-tho paper had either been
bought up the Rad?cula, or else for thc
sorry satisfaction which weak minds ex?
per ion co in being able to say, "I told
you BO," it was willing to render dou?
bly sure the defeat of that party oi
which it pretended to be the organ. , ic
the present instance, by the ntinosl
stretch of charitable consideration, w<
cannot account for the present or recen'
tone of the paper npon any snppositioi
creditable to its integrity. Some say i
hos actually sold out to the Radicals, anc
wo must confess that, in moments of irri
tation and disgust, as we read its venom
ous ar tides on Mr. Greeley, thissuspicioi
would foroe itself npon oar own mind
But this presupposes suoh a diab?lica
spirit of hypocrisy and deceit, on tb
part of the conductors of the World
euch a depth both of intellectual an?
moral debasement-that, in oalmer mo
menta, we discard it as almost beyoni
the bounds of possibility. Others sa;
that the paper is laboring under a tem
porary aberration of mind. There i
evidence, truly, of an attack of Greeli
phobia, but the method in tho World'
madness canses ns to doubt the genuine
ness of the disease.
Neither of these supposition? are prc
bable or satisfactory. We have a theor
of our own whiob, to oar mind, fut
Dishes the most rational solution of th
matter; and, at the samo time, may t
many appear the least discreditable t
That paper has never had from th
first any purpose or desire to sustain th
Liberal Republicans. The object of il

date of the Cincinnati Convention, we

party, through which the Democrac
might be again restored to power. J
has been false, shamelessly false, but nc
to the Democratic party. Its intends
victim was the Liberal Republican)
The mistake the World made was in pr<
suming that its s?beme of deceit cool
be successfully practiced by the mass?
of the Demooratio party or their organ
The World over-reaoherjitself, and i
endeavoring to take in the Liberal R
publicans, was itself taken in. Th
journal imagined that the rest of ti
Demooratio party was playing tho san
stealthy and treacherous part with itsel
or perhaps we use too strong languag
we will say the deceptive part. The fa
is, that the great mass of in tell gent ai
right-minded people eire very little f
mere party, when it inferieres with tl
accomplishment of a really patriot
parp?se. The people were ripe f

larly, they were addi novar wa rerw
What the World and. perhaps a few p
litioians intended for a sham the poop
took in earnest, and from first favorin
which the World helped to teach them to
do, have come to support heartily the
Liberal movement. The TTorW sadly
mistook the" temper of the times, and
having now been convinced of its mis?
take, we trust to see it throw aside all
false pride of personal opinion and bat?
tle manfully for the right, which is
Horace Greeley. Let us have no stay
at-home policy, Mr. World. Tlie man i
who does not vote for Greeley in the
eoming election cannot escape the re?
sponsibility of helping to re-elect Graut.
Starching for Unknown. Quantities.
We hear that Treasurer Parker is
busily applying himself to the study of
Davies' Elementary Algebra. We pre?
sumo he is endeavoring to find a sola
tion to the intrioato financial problems j
to which his figurative management of )
the Treasury Department bas giveu rise.
Ho is trying a hopeless task. "Surd
Radicals"-himself among the number
will spring up to balk his progress in
every equation. They are nasty things
to deal with in mathematics no lena than
in South Carolina-these (ab)aurd Radi
cals. Being the square root of a minus j
quantity, their value ia difficult to be
ascertained, and when found, is not
worth having. There ia no hope of
eliminating them until we wipe off the
slate and start with Horaoe Greeley us
leading factor instead of Grant.
We adviao the Treasurer to quit alge
! bra for the present, and try his baud at
the simpler methods of arith meti?. We
have a problem for him in the rule of
three, which ho can solve with ease to
himself and intense satisfaction to the
people of "our beloved State." It is
If the third of six be three,
What will his share of the^ plunder bx?
If he cannot work it, we will render as
I sistauco cheerfully. We have a shrewd
! notion that we can fix the third term of
the proportion with great accuracy, say
at 6600,000 in 5-20 United States bonds,
with the addition of roan teams, gold
spangled bretts, costly mansions, and all
the other property visible here. We
will deduct, of coarse, the value of the
limited supply of cotton laces and paper
collars which it is said he had for sale
on a back street in Charleston at the
I time he was elevated to or into the Trea?
sury. There were probably no assets
from the rum shop in a Massachusetts
village. ? Bot we prefer that the Trea?
surer will state his owu case.
HOBACJB ?BKELEY'S POSITION IN RE
; a Aim TO TUE DEMOCRATS.-The Hartford
Times (Democratic) of Jane 26, has the
following extract from a private letter to
a gentleman in Connecticut. Though it
was never intended for publication, the
gentleman to whom it was addressed has
deemed it of sufficient interest and i
portanoe to [notify its publication:
I have no possible olaim to Democrat?
ic support, and never made any. The
Democrats will, of conrse, be governed
by a consideration of their own interest.
It is nowise proper or probable that they
should be influenced, in making their de
I cisi?n by any consideration personal to
myself, and if they could be, I do not
j desire it, Hence I have said nothing to
any Democrat unless he first addressed
me, and even then I have gone no fur?
ther than to say that, if I should be
elected, I would treat all those who sup?
ported me alike, not asking whether
they liati been in the past Republicans
or Democrats. Yours,

XIII. That by reason of tbe premise

The Washington Chronicle predicts
that in twelve months, tho very best and
first-class sewing machines can and will
be sold for twenty-five dollars. An ex?
tension of the patents, which now make
these machines a monopoly and BO high
priced, will probably be refused, and the
Chronicle urges outside manufacturers to
prepare for business at once.
Near 5,000 palmetto hats have been
manufactured at Fernandina, Fla., and
shipped North this season.
