C Republican Reform.
Wo hnve awaited with great interest
and no little anxiety the assembly of the
Republican Stute Convention, now in
session, in order to ascertain what degree
of siucerity und genuine earnestness
there was in the universal cry by all tho
Radical leader? for reform in the corrupt
administration of tho past four years.
Ko Honsiblo mau expeoted that the ras?
cals now in power would or could reform
themselves. Suoh a result would bo
contrary to the nature of thingB, and
against all human experience. Ono
might as reasonably hope to see a stream
of water run upwards, or a tree grow
with its roots in the air. The rank and
file of the Republican party-tho freed?
men on tho farms-do, weare convinced,
desire a correction ?f tho sad abusos
whioh their representatives havo inflicted
upon the State, that taxation should be
as low as the requirements of good go?
vernment will allow, and that honesty
and economy should supplant that theft
and profligacy which has brought tho
State to ruin, the Republican party to
disgrace, and the negro raco to reproach
and to possible danger. Their material
interests are identioal with those of their
white fellow-oitizens. The prosperity
of the one cannot be advanoed or re?
tarded without a similar effect being felt
by the other. The masses of the co?
lored citizens can have no share in the
manipulated milliona of the financial
ring, nor in the ill-gotten gains of legis?
lative bribery and oorrnption. They
have no motives, therefore, to favor a
continuation of the frauds and the reck?
less extravagance of the present regime.
They do seek reform, but they have not
the sagacity to attain it. They have, at
any rate, been sadly cheated in the State
Convention. The very same scoundrels
who have for fonr years past misruled
the State compose a majority of the pre?
sent Convention. They had control of
the primary organizations of the party,
they preached reform as lustily as the
rest, and, despite the honest efforts of
Orr, Corbin, and other decent men, they
manipulated the County Conventions,
and had themselves sent as delegates tc
a Convention to work reform within tht
Republican ranks. They will fill the of?
fices of the State with men of their owe
stripn. as a matter of course.
Up to the time of the writing of thu
article no nominations have been mude,
bot it is very clearly to be seen that there
ia not the least hope of such a tiokel
being put forth as would give the friendi
of government the ulightest guaranty
that there will be a change for the bet
ter in the coming two years. The onbj
show of a contest is between Moses ant
Chamberlain. The one the more disso
lute and corrupt, the other thu mon
dangerous. No man with a spark o
self-respect, or of regard for his State
can support either of them.
What tlie Organ Received.
Emboldened by the belief that we hat
no means of ascertaining the amonnt o:
his bills, it has ofttimes pleased onr Ki
Klnx martyr across the way, when we pep
pered him a little heavily for his snppor
of the thievish State officials, to ohargi
that this journal received as much Stab
patronage as the Union. We were ebal
longed, some time since, to compare ac
Counts, and, doubtless, much to th
Union's surprise' and discomfiture
promptly replied by publishing the fa]
amount of our claims against the State
and demanded a similar showing froo
Parker's pet. None such has as yet ap
peared, and we presume never will. W
are now prepared to make a partial ex
hibit, at least, of the pap whioh th
organ has picked np sinoe the beginniuj
of the present fiscal year. It is a prope
supplement to the armed force fraude

True, no mystic Mooney appears in th

apparently avaricious sprite now an

-from November 18, 1871, to Februar
8, 1872-and sams np the enormoa

tising was, we cannot imagine. Up t
February 3, only twenty seven of th
238 Acts and joint resolutions passed b
the Legislature were even approved, an
certainly oonld not have boen ?urnishe

POLITICAL D?TTINGS.-The plaudits
which respond to Mr. Greeley's Port?
land speech aro muted with the sugges?
tion, which has attended each of, his pre?
ceding public appearances, that as he
has done so well, ho had best say no
moro. His Cincinnati letter, his Balti?
more letter, his letter to Carl Schurz,
hin talk to the newspaper people in Bos?
ton, his Beveral minor speeches, all en?
countered this criticism, "admirable;!
I^lon't spoil it by another word." Yet
eaoh succeeding utterance has been, at
least, as good as the last. The truth is
that Mr. Greeley understands himself )
better than his critics. He also under?
stands tho situation. For three months
he has traversed slippery gronnd with?
out stumbling, and we can trust him to
finish the journey without additional
Comly, the hideous postmaster who
edits the Oolnmbus Journal, talks abont
the pelting of Grant speakers in Ken?
tucky with stones and rotten eggs, and
fairly foams at the month. In bia head?
long passion, the ugly fellow forgets the
chopping down of Greeley poles, the '
burnings of Greeley and Brown in ef?
figy, the murder of Greeley voters, the
drowning of a Greeley man by a gang of
Grant ruffians, the hurling of rotten eggs
at Greeley speakers, etc., otc, all of
which have taken place recently in com?
munities controlled by the President's
friends. Come, come, Comly.
The Liberals of Alabama bavo ogre?'d
to support the Democratic nominees of
that State, though the former are with?
out any representation on the ticket, tho
nominations haring been made before
the Baltimore Convention had acted.
Snoh evidences of a cordial co-operation
are not only encouraging, but particu?
larly significant. A cordial union of all
conservative olements, such as that in?
dicated by the Liberals of Alabama, will
insure nearly every Southern State for
Greeley and Brown.
The Radical Congressional Committee
at Washington are sending out thousands
of circulars in the interest of the Louis?
ville Convention. This is well enough.
Inasmuoh as Col. Duncan is working in
the interest of the Radical party, it is as

The Grantites are now loading tho
maila with campaign documents, sent
over tho country free of charge, under
tho frank of Radical Congressmen. The
Cincinnati and Baltimore Convontious
declared in favor of the removal of tho
franking priviloge, and when the Libe?
rals and Demoorats get into power this
great abuse will beoorrooted. For more
than threo years the Grant party has had
control of national legislation, and still

CARRYING THE WAB INTO AFBICA.-A
special telegraphic despatoh to the Lon?
don Telegraph, from a well-informed
correspondent at Alexandria, states that
an Egyptian army of 2,000 men, with a
reserve of 3,000 more, had advanced into
Abyssinia, with a view to conquering
the country. The Emperor Kassai was
marohing against them with a superior
foroe in point of numbers, but it was be?
lieved that, as the Egyptians wore pro?
vided with Remington rifles and mitrail?
leuses, tho Abyssinians would be de?
feated and Magdala eventually taken.
Some European adventurers aro said to
acoompany the invading forco. A obanoe
may thus be afforded to the American
uenerals Rhett, Stone, Loring and
others, who aro in the Egyptian army,
of again seeing aotive service and acquir?
ing military skill.

REMARKABLE ADVENTURE.-Oar citi-1
zoos will remember how the showers
came night before last, in frequent ano*
cesa?ou, pouring torrents while they
lasted, but stopping after a brief poor.
Well, there were, at 8 o'clock on that
evening, seven mea at the point in Syca?
more and Abigail streets to which is j
completed the great sewer, which is
really an up town extension of the big
Eggleston avenue sewer. Their business
is to clean the open end of that sewer,
so as to prevent delay to workmen en?
gaged in coustrjeting it up Sycamore
street. It hid occurred to them that by
stirring the sediment at the bottom of
the sewer the water from the showers
would wash it away, and their work
would ia this way be greatly expedited.
After a long cessation in the rain, they
went into the sewer some diatauco and
continued their work. While so en?
gaged, one of those heavy, suddeu show?
ers which characterized the evening
came up and pourei down its tremen?
dous streams. The first warning they
had of their peril was a sudden rush of
waters upon thom, carryiug the whole
party off their feet. The four men near?
est the mouth of the sower escaped with
difficulty, battling up stream against a
powerful current; the other three were
carried down toward the river by the
galloping tido of defiled waters. Two of
them caught at a man-hole near the
canal, aud succeeded in making them?
selves heard by their four fortunate com?
panions who had escaped. They were
drawn up to the solid grouud by these.
But John Clark, one of their compa?
nions, was not so fortunate. He conti?
nued to travel down to Court street,
where he made a short turu and theuce
proceeded before the every moment in?
creasing volume of waters to Eggleston
avenue sower, where he made a turn to
the right, wheoco it was a straight road
to the river. Mr. Clark tells the story
himself. He says ho proceeded down in
the darkness, his back to the press of
waters and his face to their current. As
he could not stand np, he put himself as
nearly aa possible in a sitting position,
and went down the stream very much as
a boy slides down hill on a sled, only
Mr. Clark had no sled. Coming to the
mouth of the sewer, where ita waters
? discharge into the ?hio River, he cried
I for help. Mr. Lewis, who lives ia a ten?
ement wharf-boat at that point, and who
hires row-boats to parties, heard his
cries, came to his relief, and saved him.
Mr. Clark, last night, exhibited a badly
torn pair of pants, sad a pretty roughly
, bruised body.-Cincinnati Enquirer, 15th.
WORDS OF WARNING TO SOUTHERK
WHTTES AND BLACKS.-The New York
Herald thus shows tho folly and the
danger of the Grant design of fostering
war of races at the South:
The real interest the people huvo in
the North Carolina election is in the evi?
dence it will furnish of the progress of
the attempt to array the Southern ne?
groes as a race against the white citizens
of the South. The solid support of the
Republican candidates by the Southern
negroes has in it, then, no praiseworthy
and lauduble feature, but is the result of
teachings that havo instilled into the
hearts of the blacks of the South a
deadly hatred of their white neighbors,
and a belief that there can never be
peace between the two raoes.
If the colored vote should be divided
as well as the white vote in the South,
there would be a better prospect of a
restoration of constitutional government
in that seotion of the Union. As it ia,
the Southern negroes, who will probably
support Qrant with scarcely an excep?
tion, will demand of bis Administration
new privileges and now advantages over
the whites, in the event of his re-elec?
tion; while, if Greeley should be chosen
President, they are very likely to plunge
their States into riot and insubordina?
tion. In either case, there is probably
more trouble and suffering ia store for
tho unhappy South.
CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT IN AIKEN.
The Conservatives of Aiken County met
in Aikon on Saturday last, the 17th inst.,
as we learn from the Journal. Among
tho resolutions adopted by tho meeting,
we find the following:
Resolved, That we, tho peoplo of Aiken
County, bo hereafter known us tho Con?
servative party-a party for tho promo?
tion of honesty in office and a just admi?
nistration of public affuirs, regardless of
politics, race or color.
Whereas, tho people of this common?
wealth bas boen shuiaele.ssly pluudered
for tho last four yours by her pnblio ser?
vants, her citizens traduced by their
ohiof magistrate, the freo schools ne?
glected, the administration of justice a
mookory, and no adequate protection
extended to persona or property:
Resolved, That it is of the first import?
ance that all who desiro a reform in the
Government should nnite and organize,
so as to wield their strength effectually
in the approaching eleotion.
Resolved, That it is our true policy to
support mon without referenoe to their
past party affiliations, provided their
characters offer ample guarantee that
they will execute the functions of their
offices honestly and faithfully in the in?
terests of the people.
Resolved, That we, the people of Aiken
County, in Convention assembled, do re?
solve that in the event that any fraud is
practiced by any party in the balloting
or management of the boxes, at the en?
suing election, that we make np a purse
for the purpoao of the conviction of the
criminals under the law. That men be
selected to see that honesty is praotioed
iu tho balloting and registration of votes.
Tho Journal says: "The meeting was
a success in every respect, and shows
that the Conservative people of Aiken
County aro in earnest. Every township
tu tho County was represented by as
good men as there is in it, who an?
nounced themselves ready to work from
now until the day of election."

THBOW? FROM A HORSE- TBBRIBLE
SUFFERING.-A friend up from Johnson
County gives us the particulars of a ter?
rible acoident, as follows:
On the 7th inst., while riding along a
rather isolated settlement road, Mr. J.
W. Barwick, of Johnson County, wa?
thrown from his horse. Striking upon
the spine, bia arms and ono leg beoamo
paralyzed. Ho wus perfectly conscious,
bot could not risc or movo bis hands or
me foot. Tba horse ran off and was
akeu up by a neighbor. Mr. Barwick,
ling that he oould uot help himself,
mmenoed calling ns loud UH he could,
hoping to attract tho attention of somo
e who might, perchance, bu in hear
g. lu this ooudition ho lay for thirty
hours, unuble to rise ur protect hira
f from tho heat of tho Him pouring
wn upon his upturned faco (lie could
uot turn over) or to ward off tho insects |
at woro preyiug upon his bauds and j
tice. His family felt no alarm ut his ab?
oce, as ho was accustomed to being ab?
ut for days ut tho time attending to his
sual business. Parties beard Ins cries, !
but could not trace tho sound, lying '
on tho grouud us he was. Finally !
mo cow huuters happened to pass uear
here ho lay, heurd his cries and came
his relief. Ho was found to bo in u
ost pitiable condition. His face was
blistered by the rays of the sun, bis
ands lacerated sud swollen from the
ting of insects, while his ears were
filled with bugs, from which he could not I
rntect himself. lu his struggles to risc |
ho had dragged himself about four feet
from where he fell. Ho lived nu age iu
osa long aud terrible hours. He do
paired of lifo at times, and expected to
erish where bo lay. He says tho cattle

the trees near by, waiting, us it appear
d, for life to become extinct before com?
mencing their work. Ho was takeu

GOOD NEWS.-Tho notion that Penn?
sylvania is to bu the great battle-grouud
f the ponding Presidential struggle is
becoming so prevalent that all informa?
tion bearing upou tho struggle in that
?State will be received throughout the
country with interest. Tba changea
from Grant to Greeley in the old Key?
stone are numbered by thousands, aud
many of them are tho most influential
citizens in the localities in which they
reside. In a recent number of the Lan?
caster Intelligencer, one of the moat reli
ble journals iu Pennsylvania, we found
the following words of cheer, which we
reproduce with pleasure, simply adding
that our private advices confirm tho
good nows in every particular. "From
iflarent parts of the State," said the
Intelligencer, "wo have news of large
meetings being bald, at which Democrats
and Liberal Republicans unite in a spirit
of complete harmony. In the Western
Counties this is particularly noticeable,
and some of the strongest Radical Coun?
ties of the West and North-west give
promise of a completo political revolu?
tion. But tho movement is not confined
to any section of tho State. All over
this grand old commonwealth former
party ties oro being broken, and men
who have baan bitter political foes are
striking hands upon the broad platform
of reconciliation and reform. Last
Thursday night an immense and enthu?
siastic meeting waa held in thc public
square of Ea?ton, whiob was presided
over by ona who had long been a leader
n the Republican party. Among the
vice-presidents and secretaries were nu?
merous prominont Republicans. The
meeting was addressed by Liberal Re?
publicans and Demoorats, and the great?
est enthusiasm prevailed. This is but
tho beginning of thc end. Before tho
frosts of October whiten the stubble
fields, and give to tho forests tints of
orimson and gold, there will be such un
uprising of the people of this State
against corruption and personal rule as
waa never witnessed in steady. Blow
going Pennsylvania."-Baltimore Gazette.
DOES IT MEAN THAT?-We notice in
one of the Grant organs a pictorial invi?
tation to Gen. Schurz to go back to Ger?
many, if he does not like Gen. Grant.
"Steamers to Germany nearly every day;
passage cheap," rona tho courteous and
suggestive hint. Does this mean that if
a foreign-born citizen chooses to vote
against Grant, he is thereafter thought
by tho Grant men to bo no longer worthy
to lire in this country? Is it such a
crime in a German, or au Irishman, or
a Scotchman, or a Welshman, or a Scan?
dinavian, to vote against his Excellency,
that he should rather loavo the country
and loao his citizenship?
Ono thing is pretty certain-if his Ex?
cellency and his partisans want to deport
all foreign-born oitizens who mean to
vote against him, steamers will have to
sail much more frequently for Europe
than they do now to send thom home.
But what a piece of impertinence it ie.
"What! You dare to oppose General
Grant? There's a steamer; go baok to
Germany at once!" What an awful
thing it must be, in those people's minds,
to oppose Grant, or to have a mind of
your own!-Neto York Tribune.
FATAL ACCIDENT.-We are informed a
fatal shooting affray took place at Geneva
recently. It appears that a previous un?
friendliness existed between the parties,
who were brothers-in-law-Mr. Goolsby
and Mr. Anglin-and that Mr. Anglin
had been ordered by Mr. Goolsby not to
enter his house again. The other day,
Mr. Anglin drove up to Mr. Goolsby's
for some purpose, whereupon he waa
fired at by Goolsby. Mrs. Goolsby, in
attempting to got possession of tho pis?
tol, received tho contents, accidentally,
in her head, and died instantly. It is
supposed the death of his mother so
shocked the young man, that he ran off
into the woods and shot himself. The
report of a pistol was heard.

At the evening session, attempts were
made to pass resolutions of invitation to
certaiu individuals to deliver addresses,
but they were unsuccessful. A motion
of that nature relative to Senator Sawyer
brought Jemes, of Georgetown, and Mo
bley, of Union, to their feet, who de?
clared emphatically that it was of no use
for any man to attempt to dictate to them
what course they should pursue-that
the members of the Convention were
neither fools nor time-servers.
Jones did not know of anything which
Senator Sawyer had done which should
make a speech from him desirable to the
members of the party. There was evi?
dently a fear that Sawyer might tell them
some wholesome troths, and dissnade the
country members from the infamous

E. H. Heinitsh-To the Ladies.
Wo clip the following ironi the Troy (N. Y.)
"?some three months einee, Dr. R. Y. Pierce,
of Buffalo, N. Y., commenced advertising in
the Whig an artiole called 'Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy.' We believed at that time it was one
of the many catob-penny arrangements to
swindle people out of their money, but during
the past two weeks, have become convinced to
the contrary. We know of several prominent
citizens who have suffered from that loath?
some disease, 'Catarrh,' and they pronounce
Dr. Sago's Remedy no humbug, and in seve?
ral instances have been entiroly enred. We
desire to gire Dr. Fierce the benefit of the
BEAUTY'S BEST AUXILIARY.- Ask the belle of
tho season what appointment of her toilet
table holds the highest place in her esteem,
and she will reply, without a moment's reflec?
tion, HAOAN'B MAGNOLIA BALM. Nothing, abe
is thoroughly aware, contributes so power?
fully to enhance her charms and render her
irresistible as that most delightful and healthy
auxiliary of beauty. By using it, ladies are
enabled, long after they have passed the me?
ridian of life, to preservo the youthful bloom
and purity of their complexions, and where
Nature has denied that superlative attrac?
tion, the Balm fully compens?tes for her defi?
ciencies. Aug 23 i;3
