COLUMBIA. S. C,
Sunday Horning, Ootober 20,1872.
For President of the United States.
HORACE. ?RKELK?. or Ne IT York.
B. GRATZ BROWN, of JKUiouri.
Camac for Bnoonragcmtitt.
There is one feature of the State can
Tass just ended, which we regard os th?
first hopeful sign yet given of the posai
ble political reformation of our pinn
dered and misgoverned State. We refei
to the independence which large nnm
bera of the oolored people exhibited it
the exercise of their right of suffrage
Hitherto, at every oleotion iu the State
since their participation iu the duties
and privileges of citizenship, they hav<
voted, in a solid mass, the party ticket
without questioning, nnd, apparently
without caring for the character of theil
They had been taught to regard it al
most a crime to depart, in the leas
degree, from the oourBe dictated bj
their leagues and conventions. The]
looked upon their tioket with eyes o
idolatrous devotion, and were utterly
deaf to all appeals, which might be mad?
?to them to alter or amend it in any way
This time wo find their vote fluctuating
to a surprising extent, even among tin
candidates upon the regular ticket.
As a general thing, the men of bettei
.oharaoter have polled the largest vote.
At any rate, a preference has been shown,
?nd thousands of the colored people
have voted as ia their judgment wat
best, and not simply as their leaders di?
rected. This is shown most dearly ic
the handsome colored vote which Natha?
niel Barnwell, Esq., the independen!
candidate for Solicitor of. this Circuit,
has received. He is believed to bc
elected by a swingeing majority, though
the colored vote in the Circuit exceedc
the white several thousand. If the Bolt?
ers had been elected, the oolored people
would have been freed at once from the
thraldom of party tyranny, and the final
redemption of the State assured. As il
is, tho ice has been broken, and we arc
firmly impressed with the inspiring faitb
that South Carolina's night of degrada?
tion and misrule is drawing to a dose.
. We shall have an ugly time of it, doubt?
less, for two .-yoara more, and be sub?
jected to a taxation far more burdensome
than auy we have yet experienced.
But the feast of the thieves is drawing
to a dose. There is an outside pressure
in the daily increasing publio sentiment
at the North in favor of a chango of thc
national policy towards the South, and
an inside pressure from a large portion
of the oolored citizens in the State,
whioh the publio plunderers who have
been despoiling the State for the pasl
four years cannot muoh longer success?
If the white people remain true to
themselves, and true to their State, bet
redemption is assured, and a future in
store for us more glorious than our past
There is no State on the Atlantic coast
more admirably situated than our own.
We have two fine harbors, large and in?
creasing railroad facilities, the finest cli?
mate in the world, fertile soil, large
mineral resources, manufacturing advan?
tages of a high order, an aotive, ener?
getic, high-tjued people, in short, every
requisite exoept good government to
make a prosperous, happy and great
Good government we must and will
have if our people remain staunch and
true, and will take the necessary steps
to insure success.
We believe that the best and most ca?
pable man in the State can be made Go?
vernor at the next eleotion.

A very serious aooident happened last
Sunday to Mr. W. T. Lightfoot, as he
was driving.out, near Orangebarg, with
bis family, very nearly resulting in the
death of one or more of the parties.
While on a bridge, the horse shied and
stepped off the bridge, carrying with
him tba buggy, in which wero seated
Mr. and Mrs. Lightfoot, together with
three ohildren ana a nieoo of Mr. Light?
foot. The water was quite deep enough
to have drowned them, and possibly
would have dono so, bad it not been for
some oolored men who drovo up at the
moment, and rescued them from the
perilous position they were ocoupyicg
under tho upturned wagon.
The storo and stook of J. Moody, who
merchandises six miles North of Marion
Court House, was totally destroyed by

The Bichmond papers note the appear?

The Baltimore papers also make mention
of a dangerous imitation of tho fifty
cents fractional curreuoy bill which has
been put in circulation in that oity.
Oar citizens and bankers should be on

There are now two vacancies in the
higher branch of the General Assembly
one caused by tho death of Mr. H. W.
Duncan, Senator from Union, and the
other by the decease of Mr. L. M. Wim?
bush, Senator from Chester. It is to be
hoped that an order for an election to
fill these vacancies will be issued at an
?arly day, and that a repetition of the
outrage on the oitizens of Lexington
County may never occur. Chester, no
doubt, would eleot a Radical Senator,
while Union is sure for a Democrat.
The Union says, significantly, "in Union
there is need for care."

THE PRINCE OF SHOWMEN.-Mr. P. T.
Barnum, who enjoya the above soubri?
quet, hos sent us bis sard, announcing
his intention of visiting all the Southern
States the present season. His show
consists of a great museum, menagerie,
caravan and hippodrome combined,
which exhibition is as novel, colossal
and varied as money and experience can
make it. The museum collection, be?
sides containing a whale which is "very
like a whale," being 100 feet long, con?
sists of thousands of curiosities, includ?
ing rare and unique Bpeoimens in every
department of natural history, works of
art, expensive mechanical human Agares
and automatons, as well as living human
phenomena; thus making up a marvelous
combination, such as gave P. T.'s great
New York Museum so much oelebrity for
thirty years. The menagerie contains
several hundred living wild animals,
many of which are very rare and costly.
To this is added a magnificent Roman
hippodrome and mammoth circus, with
thorough-bred Arabian horses, trained
camels, and fifty of the beet performers
in the wotld, and a large company of
gymnasts, acrobats, athletes, &o.
COMING.-The great James Robinson
and his champion circus and trained
animal exposition are on their second
triumphant annual tour, visiting princi?
pal towns only. Their company is larger
and more talented this season than ever,
led by the only Robinson, the acknow?
ledged "champion bare-back equestrian
of tho world;" Frank Pastor, the cele?
brated somersault rider; Little Eugene,
Master Clarence, M'Ue Louise Boshell,
Shoppee and Whitney, Davenport Bro?
thers, Wm. Gormon, George Graham,
the Qregories, the Lo Clair family, and
Billy Burke and Charley King as clowns,
together with the great riding dog,
"Phil. Sheridan," and an immenso corps
of leapers, tumblers and gymnasts in
general. Mr. Robinson's stud of trained
horses aro said to be unsurpassed, and
perform feats truly wonderful. The
museum department is under tho oharge
of Mr. C. H. Normon, an experienced
oaterer, who will give interesting lec?
tures on the thousands of curiosities to
bo seen on the day of exhibition. The
great golden chariot used in the proces?
sion is said to bo tho finest and most ex?
pensive over built. This great show
will bo in Columbia on tho 26th of Oc?
IMPROVEMENTS.-The building intend?
ed for tho Union Savings Bank is rapidly
approaching completion, and President
Southern expects soon to be in posses?

it will be one of the most popular sav?

THE COTTON STATES' AGBICCXT?BAI?
FAIR AT ?CQUSTA.-Tho third annual
Fuir of the Cotton States Mechanics'
and Agricultural Fair Association will
commence next Tuesday at Augusta.
Tho Association commences its exposi?
tion this year under the most flattering
auspices. Under the difficulties whioh
.ittondod the first year's operations of
tho Association, it ran in debt; but last
.-ummer, through the publio spirit of the
City Council of Augusta and the citi?
zens, all this indebtedness was paid off,
and tho Association is free and untram?
meled. The premium list is liberally
and most skillfully arranged, and is cal?
culated to interest the representatives of
every brauch of Southern industry.
The gentlemen who havo oharge of the
affair have an experience of several
years; they have profited aad have been
taught by the lessons of former exhibi?
tions, and have taken every precaution
to make the Fair a completo success.
The manufacturer, the meohauic, the
planter, the raiser of horses, of cattle,
of poultry, will find that everything has
been done to ensure their oouveniouce,
and to give the articles which they may
enter au advantageous place. A large
crowd ia expeoted to be present, and the
exhibitor could find no better field for
benefiting himself and the publio than
will be presented in that city. No one
need stay away for fear of insufficient
accommodations. The citizens will make
every exertion to entertain suitably their
guests, and Augusta has plenty of first
clnsB hotels and boarding-houses. Let
no visitor who oan go stay away. A
cordial invitation is extended to all, and
we are oouviuced that no one who* goes
to Augusta will fail to have a pleasant
and instructive visit.
celebrated operatic concert troupe will
uppear in this city, about the 28th inst.
They have been giving concerts in our
neighboring oities, and have received the
hearty eucomiums of both the press and
the publio. Miss Pomoroy's feats of
vocal agility are described as startling
and brilliant, and her difficult and bril?
liant cadenzas all that could be expeoted
of the human voice. The brothers Corme
Albert and Louis, respectively eight and
nine years of age, are spoken of as hav?
ing taken the publio and tho critics by
surprise. They sprang from obscurity
to recognition as first class artists, and
in a short time aohieved a distinction for
whioh many have labored for years. Mr.
Siuolair, who was conductor for several
years at the Opera de Italiennes, iu
Paris, is decorated with fonrtoen medals
from the principal mu ?cal institutes in
Franoe, Italy and Germany. One of the
San Franoisoo journals, the Alta Gali
forniaK winds np a eulogistic notice of
Miss Pomeroy's olosing appearance in
that oity ss follows:
"The appearance of Miss Pomeroy was
the occasion for thunders of applause.
Beautiful as a poet's dream, possessing a
voice rich in melody and pathos, she
charmed tho hearts of the audience and
won from them enthusiastic cheers and
showers of bouquets. Wo unhesitatingly
pronounce her the finest contralto ou the
Pacific coast, and bespeak for her a glo?
rious future. May her Mines full in
pleasant places,' and may He who hus
endowed her so richly protect her from
al! harm during her long journey; and
while absent, San Francisco will lose u
lady whoso accomplishments and beauty
it will bo hurd to replace."

A thickly-wooded island, known as
Long Island, about fourteen miles above
Muscatine, in the Mississippi, has turned
out to be a regular robbers' nest. The
discovery was made by the polioe of Da*
venport, who, having had their suspi?
cions aroused, visited the spot recently,
but, on reanhing it, found that the
thieves had fled. Many evidences, how?
ever, of occupation of the island were
strewn around. Boxes of all kinds aud
many sizes were thick on the ground,
with bits of piper and pieoes of twine
and rope, here and there an old gar?
ment, and many signs of carpenter work.
Acoording to the report of farmers liv?
ing near by, the island had been aban?
doned by thu villains only the day be?
fore, when they bad loaded a large yawl
nud a skiff with plonder, and started
Southward. None of the houses in the
vicinity of the island had been disturbed
by tho'thieves, and the farmers thought
the people on the island were a party of
sportsmen, for they were often seen fish?
ing in the river, and starting off with
guns on their shoulders, as if going off
on a bunt.
