COLUMBIA.
Tuesday Morning. October 2, 1877.
The President's Tour.
The press and the people of both
sections seem to be altogether satis*
fied with the sayings and doings of
the President on his Southern lour.
Even those States that gave the
largest majority for Tilden, seem to
be most delighted with Hayes. His
Southern policy, wo suppose, is one
of the secrets of his warm reception
and the general endorsement of his
principles. In other words, as long
as ho tracks the line of his present
policy, the solid men of both par?
ties intend to sustain his administra?
tion. The Springfield Republican
thinks the President's trip "really
culminated at Atlanta, when the
capital of the State that gave Tilden
his greatest majority, turned out to
do him honor," and that "nothing
could probably bo better than (Jov.
Colquitt's welcome to Hayes as the
great pacificator, the peace-maker be?
tween brethren estranged, and the
President's reply was the best speech
of the whole trip." The New York
Herald is equally satisfied, and even
jubilant. It says: "Nothing could
bt better of its kind than his (the
which we printed yesterday. lXT,
.was pitched in the same key as ad
his New England speeches, and, in
fact, all his other Southern speeches,
but it was not marred by any ex-!
pression8 inconsistent with the 1
dignity of his great office. Besides
the lesser merits of perfect good 1
taste and exquisite tact, it was mark?
ed throughout by a justness and gen?
erosity of sentiment which not only
captivated his immediate hearers,
but will command the general ap?
proval of the so.id, sober-thinking
men of both parties. The excellence
of this speech may, in part, be due
to the admirable temper and tone of
Gov. Colquitt's add res > of welcome
No speaker ever hit the mark more
exactly in the middle than the De?
mocratic Governor of Georgia did,
when be said to the President: 'The
great moving cause of these hearty
demonstrations which have greeted
you since you reached Southern soil, j
as to be found in the generous confi?
dence with which you believe what
trust; which wiil not exaot cringing
and servile guarantees.' " The Au?
gusta Chronicle and Constitutionalist
says: '-'If anybody at the North is
displeased with the Southern tour,
it is mainly the 'stalwart Republi?
can,' who fattens on the spoils of
war, and has nothing to hope from
peace. It may be that the machine?
ry which led to the inaugural ion of
Mr. Hayes was false in fact, in law,
and in everything eine, but there can
be no question that it accomplished
one tremendous result, the unmask?
ing ot the Madien! Republican idea
and party, which were incarnated in
President Grant." The Missouri
Republican well describes the condi?
tion of that faction: "From that
day to this the Republican party has
been like a man awaking from a
drunken stupor. It does not recog?
nize itself; it cannot ascertain its
bearings. Its old laud-uiarks are
gone', and it seems to be in a new
world. When it looks and lis'ens,
it sees strange sights and hears
strange sounds; the country at
peace; the personal retinue of Grant
ism scattered to the winds; carpet
bagism wrecked and dishonored;
Wade Hampton escorting a Repub?
lican Executive and Cabinet through
the South; a million of the citizens
of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama,
Georgia, South Carolina, North Ca?
rolina and Virginia, shouting to Mr.
Hayes the heartiest welcome ever
given to an American President; the
strife between whites and blacks end?
ed, and the colored people in many
Southern States contentedly voting
the Democratic ticket. The Repub?
lican loaders realize this transforma?
tion slowly and faithfully, and not
the least of their surprise is at find?
ing that the shock which shatters
their delusion comes from one whom
they perverted law and f&cts to
make President," Ex-Senator Thur
mau, in a public address on the Ohio
stump, the other day, while con?
demning the Electoral Commission,
admitted that the President was con?
stitutionally chosen; that his title
was without flaw,, and that inso?
much as he had carried out politic?
ally the prime doctrines and poli?
cies of the Democracy, in his treat?
ment of the South, he was deserving
of and would receive the everlast?
ing gratitude of mankind. The
Southern people will support the
President so long as be keeps on his
present line. Gov. Colquitt and
Gov. Brown spoke the voice of Goor
President's) speech at
gia, and the President, doubtless, un?
derstood and appreciated language
which had uu uuuuttuin souud.

Dead.? We regret to announce the. death, on
Sunday last, of Percy A. Beard. 11 young man.
about nineteen years of age. and a native of this
eity. from consumption His afflicted mother,
sister and brothers have the sympathy of their
in.my friends iu their bereavement. The Rich
laud Volunteer Kiflcs, of which organization hu
was a member, buried him with military honors,
yesterday afternoon. The I'hienix llook und
Ladder Company were also in attendance.
8ai.b Dav ?Yesterday heingsnleday, a large
L number of country people were iu the city and
r a Quantity of pTbpq>Ty.w>s dis^owed^f. Ur**t
interest was centered in the sale oj Niles U.
Parker's effects, consisting principally of mag?
nificent furniture, p'ctares, &c. A crowd was
in attendance and the articles brought higher
prices than was expected. To-day there will be
another large sale of furniture at Dr. J. L. Nea
gle's residence. Auctions speak louder than
words.
Prof, ('ookk's Wovdbrs.?The exhibition at
the Opera House, last night, was truly wonder?
ful, but not as complete us was Intended. His
wine and water trick is a mystery. To-night,
he will pvifbrtn silditinnal wonders?among
others, allowing any number of persons in the
audience to write questions, and retain the slips
iu their possession, ami thej* will be correctly
answered?and then exposing the whole thing,
so that every apparent delusion will he under?
stood. An ext. a.mi;nary entertainment may
lie expected.
FlRK.?The dwelling of Mr. P. Spcllinnu. on
Sumter street, near Senate, wns destroyed by
Ore, yesterday morning, about 2 o'clock. The
unseasoned - hour was unfavorable to spread?
ing the slat 111, and some delay occurred liefor*:
the Bremen reached the spot." The Humes were
confined to the building in which they originated.
Hut a small portion of the furniture whs saved.
There is hardly a doubt but that it was the
work of uu incendiary. Only a short lime ago,
Mr. Spellmati'a bellows was ruined, uud other
dirty work done about his shop, and it looks as
if the fiend was still unsatisfied. If the guilty
party could be detected, his punishment would
be severe. The property was partially insured.
N'kw I'um.ic'AYiONs.?We have received from
the publishers. Messrs. Dick ?v Fit7.gcr?hl. a
neatly-printed volume, entitled "Dick's lieclta*
tioussiid Headings," which is now being issued
111 numbers, eacli containing about IM) pages of
entertaining matter, in pruse und poetry. The
price is thirty cunts in paper, or fifty cents in
cloth. Address the publishers in New York.
"Out of the Depths, the Story of a Woman's
Life." has just been issued from tho press of the
l'etersons, Philadelphia, as the ninth volume of
their $1 series of good novels. This book is
hardly up to its predecessors in point of interest,
though it is written in n clear, forcible style. It
is well worth rending, however, and we recom?
mend it to our readers.
Sunday in Columbia.?Most of our churches
were unusually well attended, lust Sunday. The
venerable and eloquent Dr. Plumcr occupied
the pulpit of the f irst Presbyterian Church in
the morning, and preached one of tbe most pow?
erful sermons Mint has been heard in Columbia
for many months. He selected us his theme the
Fourth Commandment, and handled his inter?
esting subject in a masterly style, conclusively
proving by the cogency of his reasoning that
this important Commandment is as binding and
obligatory on us to-day as it was when thun?
dered tenth from Mount Hinui. He clearly dis?
sipated the erroneous opinion held by many,
that the Sabbath should be kept only as a day of
pleasure and recreation. Much a forcible din*
course as this will surely be productive of much
?;ood iu the community. In the afterooon, tho
uneral of little Cora Love took place at the
Presbyteriun Church. The solemn services
were conducted by the llevs. Drs. Howe and
Plumcr, and were peculiarly impressive. Six
Sunday school children acted as pull-bearers,
and several affecting Sabbath school odes were
sung, which were rendered doubly touching by
the fact that little Cora, before she died, re?
quested that those favorite hymns of hers should
lie sung at her funeral. The night services at
the two Methodist Churches were well attend?
ed and were very interesting.

business, arc selling all kinds 01 merchandise
ami grain; taking eiders lor the same, and send?
ing from lirst hands al the very lowest market
prices. They have added to their growing busi?
ness, the purchase or cotton, and arc prepared to
give_tiK? highest pri-es in cash, for the staple
which clothes the world. Onr old eilixe.is recol?
lect when, the streets ol Ih.s city weie covered
With wagons, and upwards of lafiO IhMl hulcs of
cotton were sold in our market iiuiuiully. in
these latler days the business of our city has re?
trograded, aim the sah- of the stap e has uoiiu
down to alow point. I'lie consequence has
naturally led to a con-,?.po.idiug i-duetion of
busiuess in nil huiucln-s a- well ix in cotton.
We are of those who believe that the diminished |
business of oar city lets been caused, to a great
extent, by the waul id live men in the cotton
business. Messrs Cuthcart ?V ilugood, at this
juncture, fill a void which was injuring our city
much; ami with their energy and backed up, as
we learn, with ample capital, we are assured
that they will not only meet with success them?

and also it will be to their interest to sell in Co.

ton or a Northern market. It was a siiiht aaoil I
for sore r.'/cs. on Siturday, to see the cotton
bales standing on end in front of Cat heart & ,

like business and means business. We ask our

A jolly crowd, on plea-lire beut,
In a jolting, apr?iglesa wagon went,
To Uo a Kock.

And it was fun.
To hear each pun
Made by the ga*Mutit Uotn'rlson. ;

To view the prospect so sublime
When half wa\ lip, he chanced to ;iml, I

that tin- Hungarian General Klapktt was one

been nipped in the laid. A letter from St
Petersburg states that Verestchagin, the well
j known Itussiun, who was severely wounded in

A Madras correspondent, reviewing the
actual effects in that Presidency of the famine
and diseases consequent on the famine, says the
registered deuths ol* the present year up to the
end ot June, were :>70.IKKJ above the uveinge.
This, according to the opinion of the district
ollicers. does not represent more than two
thirds of the actual mortality, and we have
further to add the deaths which huve occurred
since, and have not yet been officially reported.
The correspondent's conclusion is that not less
than 7?0,imju |?ersou4 have ?[allen victims, and
even these figures will piobably be largely in?
creased before the famine and its after-wave of
au Hering has finally passed away.
