tlavr Shall We Get HellerT
Tbo suggestions which have been
kindly made by tho Northern proas
tonobing appropriate and effootivo re?
medies for our unparalleled troubles/
while they tend to show bow deep the
evil is, how it affects tho whole body of
tbo American people, unfortunately fall
short of the mark, and reaub not tbo
core of the disease. As long as an
ignorant population, schooled only in
party taotics, and voting only for party
and personal ends, predominates in
such numbers as it docs here, nnder
the ru!o of universal suffrage and nnder
the guidance of thieving adventurers,
there oun be no relief from evil, no
csoapo from bad government. Tho
stupendous wrong which results to ma?
terial interests, to political tranquillity,
to moral integrity and to tho advanoe of
all true civilization, cannot be justly
conceived, oan never be adequately
known, by those who have not witnessed
it. As it is the result of a most extra?
ordinary combination of oircumstanaos,
so it cannot be extirpated by ordinary
causes. As we demonstrated yesterday,
the system which ruins us und di6graoes
republican government, is purely artifi?
cial. Stolid ignorance, massed in un?
reasoning leagues, and directed by
adroit rascality, is its foundation. Tho
property of a minority of the people is
used to sustain it, and tho strong arm of
military, power nphcUL it. There are,
it will be soon, four faotors in this ugly
resolt?-ignorance in voters, uubcrupu
Iouhucjjs in managers, the proporty of
the citizens paid as unwilling tribute,
and tbo moral j-ower of the General Go?
vernment^ represented by tho presence
of its soldiers.
If the United State3 Governmont
would withdraw its garrisons, and vir?
tually say to tba people, manage your
affairs for yourselves.'wo believe that tho
misohitivous element, which makes tri?
butary to its own ends both the property
ol property-holders and the suffrages of
the humbler olasses?particularly the
colored?would not find it wholusome to
continue the business any longer. Onoe
the flag nnder whose folds they securely
follow their depredations was removed
from their worshipping gaze, a chill
would strike their hearts, and they
wonld fold np their tents and steal si?
lently away. They would require no
urging or driving. Force to move them
would be as unneosseary as it would be
ill-advised. Conscience would be free
to operate, and stung by its lash, they
would abandon the field of their illicit
gains, and leave tho victims, whom they
would no longer have tho power to de?
lude. The military is u weloome pre?
sence amongst ns. Our people have no
~2~ ? 1" ??V? nl t\\a anldinra. And I
the officers aud geutlemen whom it is a
pleasure to meet. But ander the shadow
of the flag which has innooontly pro?
tected them, have crept aud grown to
power aud influence a class of men who
have poisoned tbe fountains of our po?
litical iife, and brought shame, poverty
and infamy iu their train. It will be a
great relief to get rid of them, and we
know no way so likely to effect this end
?a way at once peaceful and effectual?
as to remove tbe symbol of power under
which they mastered and ruined tho
prosperity of our people. Ouco the
field was clear, a union of honest men,
of nil parties, oolors and creeds, oould
be entered into. Tho natural alliance
between intelligence, character and ho
uesty, whether in Republicans or Con?
servatives, with the bard-working and
voting people, would be again practica?
ble, and in time: would bo consummated,
l;> the good of all.
The more wo oxatniuu this modo of
relief, tho more it grows in our regards.
We put it- forward, ca they ?ay in the
Legislature, -"iu good faith." It is the
- only way by wbiuh the foundations of
the monstrous edifice of corruption can
be undermined in any reasonable time.
It contemplates no violence. It would
be attended with none.
Our innocent artiolo iu yesterday'?
isnne, npou a mode of relief from the
evils which aflliot our State, was hold np,
as wo loam,, by Mr. Hurley and Mr.
Muokoy, in the Huuso of Representa?
tives, as tbo revival of htu Klux. They
know butter, and need not roll up tho
'vbites of their eyea iu a vaiu endeavor
to brand it with any such odious uame.
What would they have? Their reform
is a pretence. They oanuot reform,
oven if thny honest, desired it. Tho
influenae must conto from without.
Aud come it will iu somo shape. We
seek to have it come quietly nod gently.
But the very name lias terrors for them.

Xiic Good of tb? Country Above Party.
All good oitizeue of this State, of
whatever nationality, color or party, aro
concerned in finding some remedy for
its admitted evils. Republicans and
Conservatives, black, white and parti?
colored, can auite upon this common
ground. Very strong expressions of
dissatisfaction with the oouditiou of
affairs here, bavo bee.i uttered by the
Republican p*ress of the North, und
echoed in the jouruals and public
speeches of Radicals iu this State. Tho
convention of tax-payers sent forth some
moderate protests agaiust corruption
and mal-administratiou of affairs. What
effect they will produoe upon Cougress
remains to be 6eeu. It is time some
sort of answer has been framed, apolo?
gizing for or faintly denyiug their facts
aud resisting their conclusions; but iu
moro enlightened and candid It ??publican
oirolcs, tho corruption which is eharged
is admitted to exist, aud branded as it
deserves to be. Iu the nature of thiugs,
thero cannot be nuy eorions difference
betweeu mo.derate Conservatives and
advanced Republicans upon tho exist?
ence of wrongs. Tbey aro too patent,
too enormous, to be denied. They
would stir a fever in the heart of age,
or make an infant's sinews strong as
It is natural, however, that there
should bs some differeuoe of view as to
the most appropriate remedies, and we
are prepared to allow great toleratiou of
opinion iu this matter. We welcome
the honest reformer, whether be thinks
it beat to work within or without party
organization. We and those with whom
we act, seek toseouro better government
and the oure of the diseases wbicb
afflict the body politio, by appeals, argu?
ments and remonstrances addressed to
those who at present control the politi?
cal power of the State. Wo endeavor
to make them see tbeir own good in the
good of the country. Besides that, we
look beyond our Stute borders and en?
deavor to enlist on our side the power?
ful public opinion of the whole country.
We bavo felt the force of this public
opiniou to pur hurt; we now wish to
engage it to come to our relief. Our
case has been presented to the oountry
and to Congress, and we await with
interest the response that will bo made.
South OaboijIna's Appeal.?What
has become of it? Is it dead alrendy?
Wae it that tb9 Btartliug noiso it made
too strongly resembled that of a dead
body tbrowu from a cliff in to a still lake,
into which that body immediately sank,
tbe lake resuming at once its death-like
silenoe? Nevertheless, like that body,
it will rise again, aud, trumpct-tougued,
ring out tbe "deep damuatiou of its
taking off." Yes, "murder rill out."
South Carolina's assassination must bo
tried before the bar of the country.
Meantime let us ask tbo organs and ad?
vocates of tbe centennial show aud sham
whether South Carolina is expected to
bo there. Until she is loosed from the
-zlitici! -r-Tj she esa ?pM?? hv

startle the national vanity fair with her
forlorn und deathly visage. A most un?
timely apparition would that be. Bet?

of tbe most distinguished of tbe illustri?

tbe general joy. Without such justice'

The Blue Rtdoe Bailuoad. ?A mo?

Ridge Railroad, who called the atten?

that tho trustees, under tbo mortgage of
1854, had submitted their rights and
duties to the Court. IIu moved, there?
upon, to strike out the words, "having
submitted their rights to tho courts."
After hearing tho remarks of Mr. D. T.
Corhin, who represented tho tissigneos,
the Court decided that it was an inritum
order, but that it was not neoessury to
make the amendment proposed, und
that tho order, without alteration, ex?
pressed tbe viewy of the Court.

Discoveries of Mount Sinai.?Tbe
exploration of Arabia Petrea, and espe?
cially of the mountains of Sinai, has
formed a valuable source of ioatruotioo,
of which European, more frequently
than any other, travelers havo praoti
oally availed themselves. Investigations
as to the true locality whence Israel ro
oeived the law have, however, nover yet
resulted in placing the mntter beyond
doubt. Tho peninsula of Sinai is of
triangular shape, 140 miles long from
Norm to South, and nearly tbe same in
breadth in its widest portion. The
Northern portion is u desert plain, with
sand-hills and low mountains; iu the
South, four ranges of mountains rise,
with numerous peaks, from 1,000 to
10,00'J feet high, divided by narrow
stud valleys. The Jebc) Mnsa, or
Mount of Moses, an isolated summit,
from tho South point of which, 0,274
feet high, it was supposed Moses re?
ceived tho law. had its glory taken from
it by late travelers, who maintained that
the valleys in front of it could not bold
the vast people of Israel supposed to
have been congregated under it. The
Jebel Serbai, or, as sometimes called,
tbo Mount of God, lying some distance
West of Jebel Musu, aud huving u val
loy of greater extent, was next identified
as the true Sinai by distinguished tra?
velers. Still other explorations resulted
in tho selection of the North poiut of
the Jebel Musa. called Iiis Sasefeh, or
Mount of tho Willow, 7,088 feet high,
aud commanding a vast amphitheatre.
Upon the Has Sasefoh there are three
chapels, und the monastery colebratvd
for its antiquity, its manuscript trea?
sures and the. hospitality of its monks.
As early as tho third ceutury the oaves
of these mountains were the refuge of
persecuted Christians, uuuhorites aud
ascetics, and though eveu there they
were not at all times free from Moham?
medan per.seention, they have generally
been permitted lo remaiu, and the
monks have been iu peaceable posses?
sion pretty nearly since their first estab?
lishment there. The lutost claim to the
discovery of true Siuai is now made by
Dr. Boke, an Euglish traveler, who says,
according to the cable despatch pub?
lished lately, that it is "situated a day's
journey North-east of tbe village of
Akaba, at an altitude of 5.000 feet ubove
the level of tbe sea." This in too in?
definite to ufford more than a hypo?
thetical idea of the locality, und a fuller
report must be awaited before the sub?
ject etu be fairly treated. Dr. Beke
adds that lie found remains of animals
which had beou sacrificed, and also
Siuaitto in; criptious, neither of which
facts, however, muy be deemed absolute
evidence iu the premises.
"I and My Husband Can do With?

but iu real life it will puss without spe?

among tbe uuromantio poor of tho
"Strsots of New York:"
In New York city, on Tuesday evou
ing, a laboring man, accompanied by
his wife and six children, entered the
Mulberry htrcet station, and asked Capt.
Cliuaby to give them shelter for the
night. Cnptuio Cliuchy told Doorman
Burrell to put them into one of the
warm cells ou the first floor. Soon tbe
woman asked to go out and get food for
tho children. Seeing how weak she
was Captain Clinoby told her to give
him the money au i he would send Bur*
rid I nut Tti>> wnmun liutiduil fliintuin
Olinohy four cents. "WhatI" exclaimed
Cliuchy, "what sort oi supper do you
intend to get for this?" "Bread, sir!"
"Well, you won't got enough for you
all for four cuts." "That's SO, captain,
but I and my husband can do without
it." Handing her the four cents, Capt.
Ulinchy, accompanied by Burrell, went
to a ucigbboriug baker's, uud returned
with three loaves, some bam and fish,
and a subscription was raised among
the tneu, u!l of them gavo their mite to
rissist tho poor family.

A correspondent writes as follows to
tho Asbeville (N. C.) Expositor: The
people on and around the Bald Moun?
tain are becoming very much excited
about a rumbliug noise that is almost
constantly going on in the mountain,
jarring their houses so that the dishes
rattle on the shelves. It has been go?
ing on now nearly one week, and thero
is only about oue-half aore land on the
mountain that the enow would stay
upon. This mountain lays in this end
of McDowell County, in the bend of
Broad River, just opposite tho Chimney
Rock. Every person yon see from that
section gives this statement.
If Yqur Eyis Ark CuotsED, your
sight or hearing imperfect, go to Dr.
Jouea, nt tho Wheeler House. Ho is
master of his profession. He remains
but a few more days.
