Tuesday Morning. October 2, 1877.
The press and the people of both
sections seem to be altogether satis*
fied with the sayings aod doings of
the President on his Southern tour.
Even those States that gave the
largest majority for Tilden, seem to
be most delighted with Qayos. His
Southern policy, we suppose, is one
of the secrets of his warm reception
and the general endorsement of his
principles. In other words, as long
as be tracks the line of his present
policy, the solid men of both par?
ties iutend to sustain his administra?
tion. The Springfield Republican
thinks the President's trip "really
culminated at Atlanta, when tho
capital ol' the State that gave Tilden
his greatest majority, turned out to
do him honor," and that "nothing
oould probably be better than Gov.
Colqaitt's welcome to Hayes as the
great pacificator, the peace-maker-bc
tween brethren estranged, aud 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
be better of its kind than Jiis fthe
President's) speech at A^jjntaT*
which we printed yesterday.TT
.was pitched in the same key as all
his New England speeches, and, in
fact, all his other Southern speeches,
but it was not marred by any ex?
pressions inconsistent with the
dignity of his great office. Besides
the lesser merits of perfect good
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 tono of
Gov. Golquitt's address of welcome.
No speaker ever hit the mark more
exactly in tho middle than the De?
mocratic Governor of Georgia did,
when he said to the President: 'The
great moving cause of these hearty
demonstrations which have greeted
you since you reached Southern soil,
as to be found in the generous conti
deuce with which you believe what
trdsuT, which will not exact cringing
and servile guarantees.''" The Au?
gusta Chronicle and Constitutionalist
says: '-'If anybody at the North is
displeased with tho Southern tour,
it is mainly the 'stalwart Republi?
can/ who fattens^ on the spoils of
war, aud has nothing to hope from
peace. It may be (hat the machine?
ry which led to the inauguration of
Mr. Hayes was false in fact, in law,
and in everything else, but there can
be no question that it accomplished
one tremendous result, the unmask?
ing ol the Radical Republican idea
and party, which were incarnated in
President Grant." The Missouri
Republican well describes tho 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-marks 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 aud dishonored;
Wade Hampton escorting a Repub?
lican Executive and Cabinet throngh
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
atrife between whites and blacks end?
ed, and the colored people in many
Southern States contentedly voting
the Democratic ticket. The Repub?
lican leaders 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 facts to
make President," Ex-Senator Thur
mau, in a public address on tho Ohio
stamp, the other day, while con?
demning the Electoral Commission,
admitted that'the President was con?
stitutionally chosen; that bis title
was without flaw,, and that inso?
much ae he had carried out politic?
ally the prime doctrines and poli?
cies of the Democracy, iu hia 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 Geor
gia, and the President, doubtless, un?
derstood and appreciated language
which had uu uncurtain sound.

New Publication*.?We h?ve received from
the publishers, Messrs. Dick Ac FH/ger?ld, a
neatly-printed volume, entitled --Dick's Recita?
tions and Headings," which isnow being issued
in numbers, each containing about 180 pages of
entertaining matter, in prose and poetry. The
price is thirty cents in paper, or fifty cents in
cloth. Address the publishers in New York.
"Out of tbe Depths, the story of a Woman's
Life." has just been issued from the press of the
Petersons, Philadelphia, as the ninth volume of I
their It series of good novels. This book ia
hardly up to its predecessors in point of interest,
though it is written in a clear, forcible style. It
is well worth reading, however, and we recom?
mend It to our readers.
Sunday in Columbia.?Most of our churches
were unusually well attended, lost Snnday. The
venerable and eloquent Dr. Plumcr occupied
tbe pulpit of the First Presbyterian Church in
the morning, and preached one of the most pow?
erful sermons that baa 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 fotth from Mount Sinai. He clearly dis?
sipated tbe erroneous opinion held by many,
that tho Sabbath should be kept only as a day of |
pleasure snd recrestion. Such a forcible dis?
course as this will surely be productive of much
?;ood in the community. In the afterooon, the
liners! of little Cora Love took place at the
Presbyterian Church. Tho solemn services
were conducted by the Rovs. Dra. Howe and
Plumer, and were peculiarly impressive. Six
Sunday school children acted as pull-bearers,
and several affecting Sabbath school odes were
sung, which were rendered donbly touching by
tbe fact that little Cora, before she died, re?
quested thst those favorite hymns of hers should
be sung at her funeral. The night services at
the twu Methodist Churches were well attend?
ed and were very interesting.

A (in Ah k a ii Fi km.?Our young friends,
Cathcart & llagood, are creating a sensation |
iu the cotton market. They arc located on ,
I' Ma>n street, between the stores of McmMs. Swat- i
field mid K. I.. Bryan, Ksqns., and in addition
|*to their extensive insurance and commission i
business, are selling all kinds ol merchandise
and grain; taking prders lor the same, und send- ?
ing from first hands at the very lowest market j
prices. They have mldcd to tbefr growing busi?
ness, the purchase of cotton, and arc prepared to :
Igive^ilMf highest pri-es in cash, for the staple.
?wInch clothes the world. Our old cilir.e.is recol- l
lect when, the streets ol tins city weie covered |
with wagons, and upward* of l?lMHMi hales of
cotton were sold in our market niiiiuntly. Iu
these latter days the business of our city has re?
trograded, aim the sale of the staple has untie i
down to a low point. The conscqu-'iico has !
naturally led to a coi responding ieduction of I
busiuess iu all btuiichcs .i- well us in cotton.
We are of those who believe that the diminished
business of our city has been caused, to a great
extent, by the want ol live men in the cotton
business. Messrs Cathcart <& Ilugood, at this
juncture, (ill a void which was injuring our city
much; and with their energy and backet] up, as
wc learn, with ample cupital. we are assured
that they will not only meet ?ith success them- j
selves, nut help to restore business to our city '
Planters and liirruert* may tie assured that they ,
will pay such prices for cotton, as h i,l make it ;
their interest l.i send their cotton to Coluinbiu;
and also it will be to their interest to sell in Co?
lumbia, in preference to consigning to Charles*
ton or a Noi them market. It was a sight gooU
for sore eyes, on Saturday, to see the cotton
hales standing on end iu front of Cathcart &
llagood's office. It looks like old times, looks
like business and means business. We ask our
friends to cull on these gentlemen when they
come to this city, as we arc assured they will
Hndtun acquaintance mutually prolltable, as
well as agreeable.

To do i? Hock. .

And it wns fun,
To hear each pun-.

To view the prospect so sublime
When half way up, ho chanced to Und,
His MenielmA bceu left behind.
With bounding step and anxious eye.
He. on a stump, did her espy,
Heaving ti deep and anxious sigh,
Aud having a little private cry.
"Oh. Georgie, dear!" I began to fear,
That yon would never more appear.
To comfort youH|fflicted dear.
And here she dropped a silent tear.
Next came Frank, of heavy wei.ijnt;
Who reached tho top, but rather late,
Because of his haggard, weary mate,
A sight to be seett, but not relate.

And, gatherlug'up her mountain staff,
Onward and upward she took her way,
A noble teacher of bravery.
A nd next in order came Miss Mag,
Who never thro' the day did flog.
But bounded on o'er hill and crag,
Gathering her trophies in a bag.
Then came Mary, always quiet,
But joined* that day in the general riot;
Skipping and kfteplng. full of glee.
In this sweet JumCof liberty.
Graceful and airy was her Sight,
Along the steep and rocky height;
But as the sunny day crew hotter.
She moped and sighed for the absent Trotter.
There folio wed.jiext Miss Linie M.,
Who moulded of puns the brightest gem;
The prize, n molon. which she won,
Vanished ere her ascent begun.
The oein of climbers scaled the Rock,
But fell and gave her kin a shock.
The secret was, she lacked one more.
To make her tvCO shoes doubly euro (nhoer.)
Then last of all came Julian (/.,
As nice a boy as be could be;
He rode behind upon a steed.
Which, since morning, had no feed.
But aided by the four-fold hoof,
The muleteer sealed the Rocky Roof;
What hanpenened there 'twixt vale and sky,
Was hidden from tbo Muse's eye.
The shadows long and darkly lay
Across our path, and the mules aid bray,
Showing our f*rtj came that way.
Thus ended our eventful day.
