fight for the governor's office in
order-to .. complete his programme
for milrtyrdorn. We learn that he
says h16 will hold the office until re
moved by force, and that he will
push his claims regardless of por
sonal consequences. There was an
effort to gather a crowd to hear the
ex-Governor spoak in the afternoon,
but it was a miserable failure."
his-seat Corbin was recently inter
viewed by a Philadelphia reporter
and he fairly frothed at the mouth.
He pronounces Radicalism in South
Carolina dead, says that the Re
publicans bad better make terms
with the Demoerats while they can,
and intimates that the quondam
Radical leaders will abandon the
State inquest of more genial climes.
The A4mimistration, in his opinion,
has acted treacherously towards its
Southern supporters, and be there
fore views with complacency the
inevitable collapse. All of which
means that Corbin sees that his
party has gone to the d- and in
tends to save his precious, hide by
flight. -No more blood money for
Corbin in South Carolina.
Our Fntire Policy.
To-day, by formal order from Wash
ington,. tho troops will be removed
from the Stato House after a con
tinuous unconstitutional occupation
of that building since the night of
the 27th of November. Its anniver
sary should ever be observed as a
holiday, ne mr'king the complete
disenthrallment of South Carolina
from the damnation of aliens and
enemies, and the first step towards
the restoration of constitutional
liberty in the United States. But,
while rejoicing in the events of the
day, we should not he unmindful of
the requirements of the morrow:
nor, resting content with the ass'ur
nd pre'senl, negleot to observo the
precautions nocessary to soeure the
future. The eyes of raiillionsq be..

and a fAlso step on our p~art will
instantaneously raise a howl from
them against the National Adminis

our cause. Not only this--local
interests, political and material
alike, denianid the largest share of
political~ sagacity and justice in
*olving the problem of the future.

The no!irtually defunct Radical
pary n tisState (tonsists of two
elase, hemasses and the leaders.
The dMes a* a bdivided -into
dupes nd .k ore
have been miserably deluded .by
those in whom they reposed confi
dence, and their support of a vicious
government has arisen from sheer
ignorsice.- Now that the State is
safe, they should be forgiven.
When the discovery is made by them
that the success of conservatism
weaunanore food and better cloth
ing, they will give no trouble, but
will support a decent administra,
tion with the same zeal they evinced
in upholding a licentious one. A
large number of colored voters,
however. without attaining the
dignity of leaders failed only for
want of intelligendo or shrewdness.
Corrupt and brutal in their natures,
they loved wrong for wrong's sake
tend perverted the power of suffrage
entrusted to them for the good of
the commonwealth, into aii instru
muen t for the gratification of race
prejudiceo or love of plunder. These
should be marked as dangerous
members of socioty, just as the Ro.
mans tied hay to the horns of
vicious cattle or the modern show
man placards the cages of his
menagerie They are not danger
ous when their o vil propensities are
known, and a proper precaution is
sufficient to secure the populace from
harm by thorn.
The leaders of the Radical paaty
-all of both colors, who took a
prominent part in corrupt political
machinations---aro altogether bad.
From the latogovernor of the State,
and his confederates Corbin and
Pattorson, down to the members of
the Legislature, and the manipulat
ors of county politics, they have all
evinced unmistakable symptoms of
moral and political leprosy, and the
only safeguard against their spread
ing infection is speedy banis hment
to some pest house. Their exist
ence in a community is incompati
ble with peace and prosperity.
They are running sores, ulcers upon
the body politic. Cauterization or
the knife is the proper method .of
The most perfect government is
that which is most tender towards
the good, and most terrible towards
the vicious elements of society.
Genoral amnesty does not niemLf
immunity-to the political thieves and
assassins. They must suffer. pun.

The Fowls for Eggs.
A correspondent of the Country
Gentleman gives the result of his
exp~erience as follows:
"Thme White Leghorn is undoubt,
edly the greatest egg producer of
any of the recognized broods. I
haive at ditferent times kept quite a
number of the different broods, and
for eggs alone would much prefer
the Leghorns if I had a good place
for them, where they could have
free range. If they must be con
fined it is quite another thing.
Where the fowls must be confined
in small yards, I think the Light
Br'ahmams would give the beet satis
faction of any breed. They are
very docile, mam~ke great pets, aind I
have not found them groat eators,
w~ith the exception, perhamps, of while
thecy are growing. In my expe,
rience', after they have got their
growth, they consume no more food
than the smaller broeds. The
Whmite Leghorns are a far more
desir'ahlo breod than the brown
variety, laying larger eggs, and they
"The lHmburgs Ihave found to
be great layers, but their eggs are
not equal in size to the Leghorn
egg. The Silver Spangled Ham
burgs are the handsome~st breed of
fowls in existence. Itis a great treat
to see a'wvell-brecd flock of this variety
--the beautiful moon-shaped spans
gles and large rose-combs showing
off a naturally well -shaped bird to
great advan tage. The Hamburgs,
however, are not a very hardy breed
This is the only objection to them.
The Black Hamburg is also a verf
handsome bird, and, in the writer's
limited experience with them, a
much hardier breed than their
handsome cousins, the Silver Span
gled variety. I have never found
the Cochins a profitable fowl. As
layers they are inferior to the
Brahmas. They are great sitters,
hut do not make first-i-ate mothbers.
The Black Spanish are a very good
breed for eggs, nearly eqalling the1
Legherns, but they are not a hardy
breed in mny experience. The white
face is an ugly blotch on their beau- I
ty, and it should never have attrac't
ed the attention that is paid to it.
Indeed the good qualities of the
breed are made subservient to this
unnatural facial peculiarity, in which'
there is no boenty ox' ,semblance of
"The Ddirkings iea very good
bread, not as hardy as might be
desired, but still doing very well
when they have the best of care.
The fifth toe of the Dorking is a
useless excrescence and in my opin
ion adds nothing to the beauty of
"The Dominiques much resemble
the common barnyard fowl in dispo
sition ; and in nearly everything
Dxcopt color they appear to be the
same thing. They are doubtless
the, common fowl improved by
earof il selection and good care.
On the whole, the Dominique is a
good -fowl, though not in my oxpe
rienco equal to seine of the other

breed with which I am acquainted.
if they are judiciously cared for,
they are good layers, and can be
kept in good condition on
the same amount of food usu
ally given to the smaller breeds.
A. first class -Brahina, besides
supplying a liberal quantity of eggs,
s always in good condition, and
can be killed and-taken to market at
'iy time' when desired, without
fattening or any unusual prepara
tion. My partiality for the Brahmas
is the result of experience with
clifferent.breeds, and an earnest con
viction that all things considered
they aro .the more profitable to keep.
On the subject of Brahmas the
N ewi England Fariner says :
"A Brahma, except it have a fancy
value, should never be kept more
than about eighteen months, or till
it comnmon'es to moult in the
tutumn of the second year. Killed
it this lime, the meat is excellent,

md never again can she be as
profitable as during the past eight
