We pablished, yesterday, a long and
earnest letter from the Hon. B. XT. Perry,
lato candidate for Congress lrom the
Fourth Congressional District, to fjhe
peoplo of the District. Coming from
the high Booroo which it does, and at?
tacking in flucti a bold and direct way
the evils which beset us, tho lotter muet
prove interesting, and will be doubtless
widely circulated and freely commented
upon. lu what Qov. Perry has said of
the baneful apathy of tho white peoplo
in the lost election, we most heattily
concur. There is no doubt that we loat'
a rare opportunity of redeeming our
State by failing to give the bolters a
cordial and full support, and thus break-;
jug the pov/er of tho corrupt ring whioh
has shaped the destinies of our State for
the lost four years, and brought her into
disrepute, bankruptcy and well-nigh
min. In his picture of tho lamentable
state of affairs, by whioh tho bulk of tho
property and intelligence of the State is
.practically ostracised and domocl partici?
pation or power in tho management of
.their local affairs, Gov. Perry has not
exaggerated the melancholy and well
nigh hopeless situation. But wo oaunot
cpnour ia either:the righteousness or the
expediency of the remedy whioh he
offers, to bring the colored people to a
more hoalthlul political tone of mind.
, In tho first place, it is wrong, admit?
ting, as .we have done, by our endorse?
ment of the Cincinnati platform, that
"tho .colorod popple h a vu a legal right to
vate-whioh we proposo no longer to
question-to attempt in any way to coerce
them Vi its free exercise. So long as wo
denied taeir rights of citizenship, it was
not iuooneHtent, illegal nor unjust, from
our stand-point, to prevent them from
enjoying the privileges ot oitizons. But
that day has passed, and we have, bj our
prompt and ununimouj endorsement of
Greeley and his platform, pledged our?
selves no longer to oppose the equal
rights and privileges of tho colored peo?
ple. It is repugnant to the genius of o\ir
free institutions that any man, however
poor or ignorant, should be forced to
vote as some other man, even though he
be more wealthy, intelligent, and even
virtuous, shall dictate.
Ia the second place, the remedy is in?
expedient. The desire for gain on tho
part of the individual land-holder would
make it impracticable to be carried out,
and it would antagonize tho races as
they have never before beoa. There is a
simpler-slower, perhaps, but eurer
remedy left to us whereby to bring about
a conoert of political notion between
blacks sud whites, and it is immeasura?
bly preferable to that offered by Gov.
Perry, in that it is peaceful and alto?
gether right and proper. We must make
it to the plain interest and to the desire
of the colored people to vote with u-. iu
the overturning of tho presont corrupt
oligarchy and the establishment of an
honest and economical government. We
are not prepared as yet to give particular
suggostiouB as to how this happy eud
may be accomplished. There is ouo
avenue oertainly open to us at this time,
by winch we eau make rapid aod sure
progiMds into the conti lenee and good?
will of our late slaves, and that is through
the commendable zeal whioh they all
have to acqniro an education, and the
limited opportunities in that direotion
now afforded them. We have it in our
power to do a great deal in this way for
the negro. It is a philanthropic work,
and moreover it is our patriotic duty,
and .of primo ' necessity to the futuro
welfare of our State.
This is the Darno given, and very pro?
perly, wo presume, to the general disease
whioh is inflicting thousands of horses nt
tho North. The disease, it appears, had
its immediate origin in Canada, und has
spread to all tho largo Northern cities
until now it,readies Baltimore. The
nature of the epizootic seams to bo
something like ' influenza or catarrhal
fever ia individuals. The horse, when
utfcacked, becomes hot and feverish in tho
body, oold in bis extremities, his eyes
red and watery, and there is generally a
discharge from the nose. Tho discaso,
from the symptoms described, does not
seem to differ greatly from lung fever,
which was so prevalent among the horses
of tho cavalry and artillery service dur?
ing the war. Bot it does cot appear to
be anything like so fatul lh its -results.
Indeed, ^he mortality appears'to hie very
slight. 01 the thuuGu -.du ? f horses re?
ported to be affected in Now York, we
have nofc-n?tioed that a single one, so
far, h UH died. Still, the pecuniary IOBS
from the stagnation of business is, per?
haps, nearly as great as tho actual death
of the horses would be. Io New York,
the drayage, tho street oar abd the ex?
press businesses are almost* entirely
checked; thr'eo-fourths of the horses
being more or less affected, and, conse?
quently, on Qt for duty. Many of thom,
however, are rapidly recovering, and it
ia now ' believed that the worst of the
plague is over. Numbers of horses have
again beon pat to work after their re?

have shut them out equally from his own

MB. EDITOH: About one year ago, I
attender! ah agricultural fair in a North?
ern town, In whioh four railroads cen?
tred. The hotel accommodations ot the
town were too limited by far for the
crowds that attended the fair. Hence
tho railroad? rau into town every morn?
ing and out of town every afternoon
during fair week-a traiu of cars for
about sixty miles. Consequently, thou?
sands attended the fair that would not
otherwise have done so. Are. we not
aitnilarly situated here in Columbia?
Evo ry fall, during the fair, our hotels
are literally stoffdd, and hundreds com?
plain of not being abto to obtain quar?
ters. It our railroads would run morn?
ing trains in and evening trains out,
next week, would not hosts come to thc
fair who otherwise would not attend? I
have heard that Cul. Bridgora intend*
running un extra daily from aud to Ma?

wonld bring to Columbia would circulait
a few dimes or dollars amongst us, aud
tho aggregate would be a fortune. Plat'
form oars, with simple c toady benches
would suffice for near poiuts. I havt
seen such ears, while stu adi ig ut thc
depots waiting for the ougiuo, beautifully
festooned with evergreens and shad*
bushes, so as to make them look com
fortable, at least. I hope this mattel
will attract tho attention of our railroae
authorities, and obeap transportai iou foi
the thousands will bo furnished them ti
como to Columbia next week.

COMMENTAIT? ON PAUI/S EPISTLE TO
THF. ilKBTtF.wrt.-By Ber. W. 8. Pl a m er,
D. D., LL D. A un ou U. F. Randolph &
Co., New York, .1872. ? I
l'hirt ootumoutary hus j nat mwj? ita
appearance in royal octavo, covering 559
pages; uniform:in siz*, letter prose and
binding with Dr. Plumer'a Commentary
on the Epistle to tho Romans. Both
commentaries are works of the highest
merit, combining ail the benefits of criti?
cism and leurmng With the inculcation
of doctrinal and practical godliness.
As a cr raiqou tutor, Ur. Plumer hoe
struck ont a ri?w method of exposition.
It iaxrrrginal ??ici n?BDwn. He expounds,
analyzes ead applies the truth. Tholock
and Olsbausen, of the German commen?
tators, are good expositors of the book
of Hebrews, but thuy aro critical. Tur?
ner, Paterson, Stuart, Scott, and a host
of English, American and Scottish scho?
lars, are learned'and good, but oftpo too
critical fot tho .ordinary reader. '.Owen
is critical, elaborate, ex bau stive, und dif?
fuse, and on Hebrews, as io all his
other writings, uot suited to tho ordinary
reader. Robert Hall was perhaps more
severo than just wheu hu said, "John
O wenn' writings are a continent of mud."
Still, it must be admitted that, as a
general ruin, two classes of writers must
bo road and studied in order to profit by
tho perusal of any books of Scripture;
wo must study thu critic to reach the
meaning of the text, nod wo munt study
tho sermonizer tu get at thu practical in?
fluence which the truth of revolution is
designed to exercise on the heart and
life. While, then, one class of men
write for the hearls aud another for tho
hearts of their reuders, Dr. Plumc-r
writes for both. He writes with all the
power aud wisdom of a scholar, and all
the soul-stirring earnestness of a Chris?
tian. These peculiarities of Ur. Plumor
as a commentator, render it unnecessary
for any other man to write on tho books
of Scriptoro whioh have engaged his
pen. Houoe it is that his great work on
the Psalms of David and Ins Treatise on
the Epistle to the Romans aro not only,
like the work before us, exhaustive, but
they give in their expositions the opi?
nions of all commentators who aro worth
reading. Thou they give his own views,
sud eaoh section closes with a series of
doctrinal and practical observations.
His commentaries are, therefore, foll ol
erudition, deep thought and prnotical
power. The bearing of every truth he
enunciates.upon the heart and life of thc
reader, is one of the prominent and lead?
ing excellencies of Ur. Plumer'a method
of expounding .Scripture.
The volume ou thu Hebrews is bis last
And cortuiuly one of bia ablest efforts an
a scholar, an author and a divine. It i*
a book suited alike to the family, the
congregational and theological library,
aud well worthy of a place in them ali.
The student will profit by its learning
the minister by its expositions aud the
private Christian by its pointed und
heart-searching application of truth.
Few writer? in this or any country
have boon so laborious and HO successful
in the domain of pructiual theology aa
Ur. Plomer. In addition to the three
treatises named above, he has written u
masterly work ou tho Siuaio Code, enti?
tled "The Law of God;" another, enti?
tled "The Grace of Christ;" another,
"Vital Godliness;" auother, "The Rook
of Salvation," and a treatise on Provi?
dence, entitled "Jehovah-Jireh." ,
Besides these ho has written severn
smaller books of great merit; aud, as t
traat writer, he is said to bu the best it
America. Th eu, with all the labor of hil
pen, he lectures daily iu the Tbeologiua
Seminary at Columbia, S. C., during tut
winter session, aud preaches every Sab?
bath day, often 1U0 to 150 miles fron:

Son SMTTII RUSSELL-THE POPULAS
Acron PLANNING AN. OCCUPATION pfc; TH?
SOUTH.-About th?? 10th .pf 'November,
Mr. Russell leaves for au extended i?outh
ern trip, which will occupy him at least
ten months, commencing at Cairo, and
embracing Kentucky,' Tennesse?, ' Mis?
sissippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia,"Vir?
ginia, the Carolinas, Pennsylvania and
Ohio, with, in all probability, short tours
in Louisiana and Texas. His entertain?
ment takes the form of ? monologue
something like Charles Mathews* "Afc
Home," or Winchell's exhibition. It
will contain a great variety of imperson?
ations, brief comic lectures, songB, &o.
From tho style in which it is written,
and his well known personal character,
the entertainment is sure to bo not Only
au agreeable one, but one with which
the moat fastidious taste cannot find
fault, Mr. Russell has for the past seven
\ears traveled with tho Berger Family
and the Peak Family, and in his vaca?
tions hos frequently tried giving an en?
tertainment ot the above character. ' His
attempts have met with such success as
to warrant him adopting tbut line of
business permanently. Hu is accompa?
nied by Mr. James E. Stewart, a pianist
from Detroit, who hus wou no small
fame aa a composer, both of songs and
[St. Louis Democrat.
The London Standard thinks that tho
peuce of Europe rests upon a very ques?
tionable footing. There is not a corner
of tho continent which is not armed to
the teeth. M. Thiers openly boasts that
be possesses an incomparable army, and
all the elements of France-Radieals,
Orleanists, Legitimistsand Imperialists
are united upon tho necessity of obtain?
ing revenge from Germany as Boon as
practicable. Neither Prince Bismarck
nor Count Audrassy, the Austrian Pre?
mier, believes that peace will continuo,
and the meeting of the Emperors at Ber?
lin waa due to tho desire on tho part of
the high contracting powers interested
to come to an understanding upon this
subject. Ev.'u Servia claims that she
can pur 300.0t>0 men into the field, and

The Peoria Review thus correots a
story of the Missouri Democrat about
1,000 sheep who leaped through the
window of a covered bridge near Peoria:
Tho story ia very nearly correct. There
were, however, only (330 sheep in the
drove, instead of 1,000. The bell?
wether did not see the open window. It
did not jump out of it. The Hock did
not follow it. There ia no window in the
bridge. The drover did not drive his
sheep across tho bridge; he orossed at
the ferry, three miles higher ap stream.
If the bridge was 500 feet above high?
water mark, the present piers would
have to be lengthened 460 feet io order
to reach the bridge. There is not a co?
vered bridge within 1,700 miles of Peo?
ria. With these typographical inaccura?
cies, the romance is correct.
A Paris engiueer has just been "hoist

i.e., blown to pieces by tho accidental
explosion of au iufernal machine, whose
destraotive properties he had intended
for th? benefit of the Prussians, should
another war break out. The man's
name was Durieox; and for many
months he hud labored assiduously at
his benevolent invention, whioh was to
sweep away wholo ranks of the enemy at
a single discharge. At last the moment
came for the filial proof. Durieux pro?
