Decline of Republicanism,
The Now York Worldl has a
strong article on the political up
heaval in Now England, which is the
moro significant as that section lias
horetoforp bon noted for the porti.
nacity with which tl1 peoplo cling
to their respectivo party moorings
year after year, It thOn goos on to
put a little handwriting on the wall
for the poriaal qf the Republicans,
nts follows :
Whether this is the end of the
Republican party we shall bo bott.or
able to tell after the October elee
tions, when Iowa and Ohio are test
ed, the one a strong Republican
State, the other debatablo grond.
There is one significant point our
Republican friends overl-ook--lat
of lato years when the Democrats
captuiro a Stato they keep it, and
when klip Rep.1.blican powr is at all
shaken it is never restored. In
Arkansas, Texas, Louisianc,
Alabama, Mississip)pi, Florida, Gehor,
gia, the Cairolinas, everiywlhore ini ti e
South that the Democracy has re..
gained control, the Re~publican
party hais vanished like a bursting
bubble. Since the 1R01)ublicani party
in Missouri wVas broken by the Libi
oral movement of 1870 it has failed,
till now, within eight avooks of ele
tion (lay, it has ,nnt made one nomi
nation for Congress while holding
four of thirteen seats. Indiana was
wrested fromj Morton in 187G, and
the Republicans have no hope of
regaining it. Up to 1873 only once
in twventy-one years had Ohio gone
Democratic, aind in Presideontial
years it was Rlepublican by from
34,000, to 64,000'; in 1874i and 1875
the Dcmgorats carried it ; in 1876
Hayes bar~ely oanle himself ; in 1877
the Democrats entored its cital,
aind in Lg78 the Republicau~s arc
only going through the motions of a
Stato canvass. There wals P.enn
sylvania, avbich~ in 1872 gave Griant
136,000 majority. The tidal-wave
shook it, and though Hartranft and
Hayes squeezed through, it came
pver last year and this year will elect
a Democratic governor. There is
Illinois, where Grant's candidature
each time secured a majority of over
50,000 :the liopublican majority in
1876 was a little .o-v.or 2,000. Michi
gan's majority has shrunkc from
60,000 to 15,000. Newv York is a
recognized Democr-atic State.
What further evidence is needed
to show that the Ropublican party
:bas exhausted itself ? It ran upon01
the force of an idea for some year-s.
When that impulso wans lost and its
.mission accomplished it retained
itself in power by inertia, for-ce,
fraud and prejudico. Onceo'bereft of
power it has no notivo principle, no
recuperative force, no plausible or
decent excuse for existing.
Judge Bond has decided that the
~South Carolina Railroad is a .hqpe
less bankrupt, and has appointed J.
-H. Fisher as receiver to wind up
its affairs. The case against tihe
,Oreenville and Columbia Railroad
,will not be tried until winter, and
this corporation has somo furthor
breathing time. The Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta Railroad
has thus far, despito mal-adminis
tration, boon able to steer clear of
the courts and remain nominally in
the possesision of the original
stockholders; but what bonofit they
havo received froin this investment
since tho war is not apparent. The
recent sale of a controlling interest
shows that the road is not iaking
money now. Yet good reason
exists for the hope that. it will im
prove greatly in the. future if the
now m"anagem1nt is characterind
by liberality and fair dealing. 'his
road lies directly on one of the
main lines of travel, and one shorter
by over a hundred miles than
'omiipcting lines, so that no reason
exists Wh1y it should not conImand I
almost a monopoly of travel and
a largo amount of froight.
The narrow and hido bound policy
of discrimination that has been
heretofore practised by this road
could not but react upon itself,
in driving away trade fromt the
busiess centres along its lino, and
thereby lessening the carrying
trade. 'While Chester, owing to its
terminal advantages, has beenl
prospfring, all the other town3 and
stations along the ro:al have gradu
ally been declining. The exorbis
tan t freights charged for votton
havo drivei that staple to other
markets, and while stores stood
luled with goods that could not be
disposed of, no new orders of any
Considerablo 1.mount could be ex..
pected t.o yield to the revenues of
the railroa(d. Winnsboro has sur
fored greatly by this illegal dis
crimination. The gratifying prom
iso of 11ore liberal freight rates for
cotton shipped from Winnsboro this
fall vill give an 11)impet us to the
trado of the place. and by bringing
cotton here, will elable the railroad
to reap increased freights from
increased shipments of goods to
this place. It is to be hoped that
the now administration will be
liberal. If not, the Legislature
should take the matter in hand as
the Legislatures of other States
have dlone. The spectacle of the
ruin that has befallon all the other
railroads that have desh o.1l J them
.,Clves by chokiing to ke 1u1 the
towns through whIhleh they n issed,
should lo suflcient, lw.. ever. b
impel the magnat-es of this lino :

not from a fear of poweri of the

At the .Jarin desPlantes a
young .sculptor, who was studying
annli made the acquaintance of a
pirethy anid p)itunto nurse-girl who,
however, th rew him overboard and
took up with a soldier. The deso
let (I voung artist thereupon took to
wvriting upon all the walls the hieartN
cry :".1 love A dele," hoping that
it would moet her eye and touch
brherrort. Tlhe wilful girl, deter
mnied to oscapo this perpetual ro
preoch of lier perhidy, at last made
her habcitual resort an iron bench in
f ont of the rhinoceros. The seat
could not lhe wvritten on and there
wvaa no wall. 1-tor she and her
soldier would sit by3 the hour,
.watched from afar b~y the jealous
an.1 distracted lover. At last they
enmto at the usual hour, nnd theo
faithless girl glanced at the lhugo
and ferocious animal. On its horn
wase carved a heart, .beneath which
wvore the words, "I still love Adele
and am wvaiting at the dulk-p)ond."
H-ow eQuld a woman's heart reaist
this? Tears caime to heyes; ini a
moment the soldiers arm wvas on
