NEw YORK Republicans say that
Tilden is preparing to run for gover
nor of New York in the fall. If so
he will put up a rattling little fight.
THE EmSTo Clarion has changed its
name to that of the Orangeburg Demo
erat. Under the managoinent of
Messrs. Sims and Sheridan it promises
to give the people of Orangeburg a
live Demoeratic paper.
Mr. Charles Potty has bought out
the Spartauburg Spartan, and will
conduct it in future. Mr. Petty is
wide awake and well posted, and will
make a good paper.
The H1ami:ton aerald has changed
its name to the Rock Hill Herald.
Capt Ivy is making quite a success in
the newspaper line, and his efforts
should be fully appreciated.
CONGUEssMAN WURiAnRG, of Geor
gia, died on Wednesday of pneumonia
ill Washington after a brief illness.
-te had served several years most
acceptably, but declined a re-cleetion
to the forty-sixth Congress. At the
same time the report comes that Alex
Stephens, who was reported as dan
gerously ill on Monday night, has
recovered and will be ill his seat in a
few days. P1revious to his recent
attack Mr. Stephens had been confiln
ed to his room for weeks from the
efrects of a fall which came near kill
ing him. Stephens has been on the
briuk of death oftener than all the
rest of the lealing men of the coun
try put together. Yet he still sur
vives. In tie last two terms he has
seen half a dozen hale and hearty
Congressmen die. The only possible
way of accounting for this mystery is
that "the lion. A. 11. Stephens takes
Simmons' Liver Regulator," aud his
The Fight in 1880.
A prominent Republican, whose
namlle is not given, tells the New York
Hra!d correspondeut that Grant will
be the no is neest pty i a880,
because ie is a necessity. "We may
not be able to elect any man," says
this caudid statesman, "but we oer
tailnly caiint eleut anilyono except
Grant. The Democrats have but few
m11f who could carry the country
against Grant. I can think of only
three; Bayard, General Hancock and
Randolph, of Now Jersey. With eith
er of these they can win, in my judg
m.niit, and I don't know of any one
else they have." Republican hopes
are centrc(l chiefly in the belief that
tihe Democrats will blunder, as they
have so often done before.
The trouble Is not, as this Republi
can claims, thlat the Democratic p)arty
1has not brains enough to go straight,
but because it has no recognized
leader. Every Senator andl Con
gressman strikes out a course for
bimiself,.and whlen1 one blunders, the
whole party Is made to bear the
bilame. Were they but half as well
dIrilled as the Rlepubllicans they would
cap)ture thme governmeont without anly
trouble. It is to be hoped that pru
dent counsels will p)revail for the next
two years, at least. Inl order to suco
coed it is neocessary not to frighten
the capitalists 'who control the sinews
of wvar, and who are naturally pronie
to go for Grant. It took Andrewv
JIackson with all his ability, stub
bornness and prestige eight years to
overcome the United States Bank ;
and It -is a bad time for the Decmo
cratlc party to flght the National
Banks now. Its policy should be to
muako no eneCmies until it is firmly
intrenchied inl power. Then it cani
turn its attention to the banks if it
thinks thlem dangerous. This is not
an1 opportune time to open! ne0w
IL financial issues. Let us fight for
constitutional liberty. That Is an
issue broad enough, and 0one that
should win. Lot us beat Grant. It
WAShINGTON, January 7, 1879.
Congress meets to-day. The contest
for the romaind,er of the session will be
over the legislative, executive and ju
dicial bill Iito which the House conm
mnittee on app)ropriations have incor
porated several reforms in tile way of
I consolidIation of bureaus, &c. I sup
pose the Republicans will fight those
economical propositions as biltterly
as they did those ofthe last four years.
Yet without these four years' reduc
tions we could not have escaped addi
tIonal taxation, and could net have
entered on resuniption with so fair a
brospoet of success. To Insure reform
amnd economy, as I have said before,
we need a two-thirds vote of both
liouses. Senator Voorhees has gonie
IA to Indiana to be present at the SenatQ
rIal oletion In which he has so deei
an Interest. There ought to be and
possibly Is do doubt of his election.
No party was ever more thoroughly
pledged to accomplish a given thing
than Is the Democratic art to elect
Voorhees. The wholoNovember
campaign, from the first speech of
Gov. Iendrix to the last ballot thrown
on election day, was fought on that
Senator Thurman yesterday wrote
to the Ohio Democrats, who will as
semble on the 8th to celebrate the
battle of Nciv Orleans, that ho could
not be with them. He had been se
lected to speak on "Jackson Democra
cy." No one could havo done the
subject more complete justice. It is
to be-regretted that the Senator felt
compellod to (clinle, especially as the
declinkationt miust probably be taken as
showinr that ho will persistently re
fuse to be the Democratic cadhdatc
for governor of Ohio.
Tle decision made on Monday by
the Supreme Court, in a polygainy
case from Utah, is a blow to the sur
viving "twin relies of barbarism" of
which we heard so much twenty
years ago. It is to the effect that the
laws of the United States, forbidding
polygamy in the territories, are con
stitutional. One Revnolds contracted
a marriage in Utah aginst the anti
Polygamous laws of the United States
made for Ruch cases. Prosecuted
therefor, and the decision of the lower
court being against him, he took the
case to the Supreme Court on appeal.
The effect of the decision can but be
great and i portant on the- relations
sustained by hundreds in Utah.
This week the friends woman suf
frage meet, here in convention. They
com from all parts of the country,
gv u entertaining Speeches and
hectIres, behave themselves much
better than the average members of po
litical conventions and go away. Next
year they will conic again. To the un
practiced observer those gatherings
seem to cause a misuse of time and
funds, as the first action giving the
ballotto woman must of necessity come
from State or Territorial government.
If the ladies would meet at some State
Capital year after year, they would be
more likely to accomplish something.
In the week since resumption nothing
has occurred.to alarm the most timid
