Some critics having declared that the '<
use of the word "rare" in the senso of <
*4underdone." is an Americanism, the \
Academy Las received letters from al!
parts of the British Isles, except Scotland,
declaring- that the word is a pari >
of the vernacular. We can therefore!
order "rare" beef-teak, w ith impunity ;
from the gibes of British critics.

The Legislature has passed the Ant :
creating the new countv of Bei'klev :
. * '
out of the Africanized portion 01;
Charleston county. This is a proper j
act of tlie Legislature. The city is re- j
Jieved from the incubus of tiie Sea ;
jdands, while in the new county the!
elections will be all one way, and the
]>eople will not be troubled with the
turmoils of a canvass. The Governor
will have the appointment of the
treasurer, auditor and trial justices,
and this will save the taxpayers from
spoliation. The Senate will contain an
additional member.
The police have unearthed a regular
kuklux organization among-the Fenians
in Ireland. On the trial of two arrested
persons, the informers produced the
following order: "On the 30th of December
James Sullivan to be shot in
legs, bis mother and daughter
clipped for dealing with the liogertys,
John Linehan, story telling, to be
clipped, Denis Coakley, for turning !
out his laljorer, to be shot in the legs.!
Maurice O'Brien, to be shot in {he legs, !
for paying rent, signed by Captain :
Moonlight." The clipping referred to !
consisted in cropping the hair of the ;
females of obnoxious families. From j
these developments, it does not appear ;
that excitenjenrShd trouble are 011 the j
the Emerald Isle.
The Constitutional Convention will I
rot be called after all. So tar from :
peon ring a two-thirds vote, it failed by
a majority of almost that number. This
is nropcr. AVe have enough disquiet-j
jngquestions now without niggmg 111
Msv-organic change. Bv almost- the'
same vote the ^ House disposed of a ;
carefully prepared educational amend- j
incut fur appointing countv school :
c ommissioners. A terra of four years :
i-)r State officers and members of the ::
?>-./ legislature is recommended by the
jlocse as an amendment. The object
i= to prevent a too frequent recurrence
t?f elections. Once in four years is !
enough, provided the people make i '
good selections. Another amendment i1
iviil provide that all felons be disfran- :
ehised. This is but right. It is bad j'
enough for the ignorant to control the t 1
government: but for the depraved and j 1
vicious to have a voice ir. the choice of ^
f. i-iScers of the law is the height of ab-.(
surdity. The House refuses to recom- 1 1
mend the change of territorial limit i
for counties to four hundred square 1
i:;iles from six hundred and twenty- is
five. This strikes a blow ar the arabi- j1
lion aud aspirations of certain enter- j *
prising-young tow ns, who wish to be- c
? come connty seats and centres of f
j civilization. j l
Ex-Goveknok Leland Stanford, of ]
California, is credited with the remark ?
tliat the protective tariff on steel rails t
lias cost the Pacific Koads over ten
: million dollars. In other words steel f
ruLLs could J?ave been procured from i ?
jMB ygsMcgnac ?a? wbbbokr
'mrinnd fit a fiynre less bv ten tnil- : e
ions than the charge made by Atneri- j b
an mills. This calls for deep reficc-! s
ion on the part of the people who I il
ikewise pay their tribute directly to j o
Pennsylvania 011 steel articles fur their j >wn
use, a>: well as indirectly in in- j
:reased railroad tariffs to meet in-j
.Teased expenditures fur repairs. ^
Fhere are two horns to (his dilemma.!
If the American mills can compete on
;qnal terms with England, as is said t
:o be the c.-i?e, the duty is a simple 5
steal; if they cannot, the rest of the '
people are called on to support them i
while they engage in most nnrcmnu- }
jrative labor, and this is a loss of ag- - j
irregate production. Let the furnaces .*
- - . , ! *
lie idle, and send the operatives to ao
something that will pay better. There;
are industries in which America ca;:;
i-ompete with Great Britain, if iron
manufactories cannot. To protect I
manufactures is r.s absurd as to proicci
agriculture. Yet our own farmers1
would be the first to rebel against a j
tariff that levied a heavy duty on all j
sugar brought into this Slate, in order
that a few visionaries migh'; make sugar
in upper South Carolina when it '
doesn't pay. The argument in either j
case is the same. The truth is tliat
iron manufactures, in America would '
pay even in direct competition with '
England, and to allow the iron mo:i- i ,
gers to reap this rich harvest is the 1
height of absurdity. ! 1
The Doom of Gateau.
The jury have disposed of Guiteau
time sufilocd to seal his doom as a re- !
sponsible murderer. This result has
been foreshadowed for some time, and
it is probable that the length of the
cri::i told against the murderer. For
the first week or so his novel proceedings
ii> the court room, defying judge
and jurors, and interjecting his re- j
marks into everything, gave color to;
the theory of his insanity, and had the
defence closed the case at that point
the result jiight have boon doubtful, j
But the public, as well as the jury, i
were wearied and annoyed by the continued
wrangling, and were glad to
get rid ofGuiteau in any way. Whether
or l.ot be is insane will never be
known. The advocates of the in vanity
theory are many in number, and the j
- :? ?a war oltoi- I
veraicc 01 rnc jui"> wm m u\> ,
their belief, but a large majority of the j
people will be gratified to see Guitean j
hung, some because thev believe him !
to be a murderer, others because they |
hold that an assassin, whether crazy or !
not, should be strung up as a warning j
to all future generations.
Unless an appeal be taken, the end
of the tragedy will soon come. Then
politics will move on as before, and
Garfield and Guiteau will alike be forgotten.
2s ationai Aid for Education.
The necessity as well as the propriety
of national aid for education in the
South has become apparent to a large j
portion of the Northern people, even j
those who desire to keep the colored j
: people solidly Republican, yet fear to j
assume the responsibility of mongrel j
governments that once had sway down J
hc-e. Several educational bills have i
been presented in Congress and have I
noticed .aAffisnv. L wt ?
sale of public lands and the patent i
oface paid over to the States for school
purposes instead of having the fund
administered by a host of Federal
officials. This bill has been ably seconded
by a memorial prepared by
Superintendent Hugh S. Thompson,
and circulated through the State for
signatures. This memorial sets forth
vividly thrt necessity f>r education in
this State, and the inability of the people.
who are doing their best, to make
the State system of schools sufficient
for the wants of the children. The
memorial next sho>vs that while new
States have received magnificent do
mains for school purposes, tlie older
Slates, some of whom conveyed lauds
to the government, have received
nothing in return except the land
scrip, which is small in comparison.
Simple justice demands a grant for the
older States, and in no better way can
it be expended than in educating the
future citizens of the Republic. We
hope all our citizens will sign this
memorial, which will be in the School
Commissioner's office a short time, and
thus evince their interest in this most
praiseworthy effort.
An Additional Congressman.
A new apportionment bill has been
introduced into the House at Washing
ton. It is somewhat different from j
those reported last year, but it also '
gives an additional Congressman to j
South Carolina, making six in all. If i
the bill becomes a law, it may be too ;
late for our Legislature to apportion j
the districts: but in that event a Con-1
gressman at large can be elected, so j
that our additional representative will !
be secured. The new bill differs from j
ali previous acts n the method of apportionment.
' The old way was to ,
divide the quota for one Congressman
into the whole population of the State, '
and then to give the surplus Congress-1
men 10 the States having the largest ;!
remainders. The present bill fixes the .
total number at three hundred and ! :
twenty. This gives a ratio of aboutj j
1-37,000. D . iding this into the popu-j j
lutions of lue respective States, about; <
..t I .3 I f. i 1
uii i'U tiuiimuu u:i;i iuui uiciucrvi 2 ai v
secured, leaving remainders represent- '
ing sixteen Congressmen. These are <
apportioned as follows: Assume that! .<
New York has thirty-three Congress- |
men and a remainder of 100,000. while 1
tthode Island has one Congressman | ,
ind a remainder of 12o/mj0. By the j i
former methods lihode Island would ' i
secure the additional member. 13ut it 1
i s
is found that the addition of one mem- j (
x*r to Xew York will <rive a ratio for :
,he whole State of 102,000 to the mem-1 t
_>er, while two members in Rhode J '
Island would give a ratio of 141,000 ' ^
>nly. so New York gets the additional; s
nember. This is the fairest method 11
is it apportions the members more I
learly according to population than :
tny other. At the same time it enures j ]
o the benefit of the largest State?. In |
he present instance, New York se- j j1
:ures thirty-ionr, Pennsylvania tweti-j j,
y-nine, Ohio twenty-one and Illinois j a
wenty-one, while Rhode Island and ; i'
Florida will each lose one. The New j ^
England States lose three, the Middle c
>tates gain four, the South twelve and 1;
he West fourteen. j v
Of course every Congressman will ^
ight for all he can get for his own ^
>tate, and it remains to be seen wlicth- j a
r a majority will accept the present j r
ill. Last session was consumed in ! 1
qp.ubblcs, and the Democrats can now, j *
ftliey choose, play the same game of; j
Instruction that the Kepublicans then ! t

qualities, and taught me not only to j

who followed his convictions of righ! !

nevr?r bee;: tarm-hed by

promptly extended the hand which j
had so resolutely grasped that- sword
in war to those wJso bad been his enemies.
Magnanimous as ho was brave,
his heart was large enough and generous
enough to recognize, when peace
fjinip fo oar distracted country, every
American citizen as his fellow-cum- j
tryaian, ai.'n no act of Isi.s since tlie !
war was inspire.! by sectioutil ha;e or |
political animosity. War. with a!i it< j
attendant, inevitable horrors, could (
not change his gentle and noble na-1
ture, for lie seemed to be absolutely 1
i'ree from all the bitterness it might
naturally have engendered, and his j
highest aim, his constant elTorts were j
directed always toward the reconciiia-!
tion, tl.e harmony and the enduring |
peace of the country. It was the |
recognition of his patriotic efforts in i
tiiis direction, together with the charm !
of his kind and geniai manner, that j
won for him the respect, the esteem j
and the affection of his colleagues from j
the South, and 1 feel assured that I \
give utterance to the universal feeling
prevailing among them when I express j
riif> T?ruft?njjrittsL sorrow at his death, j
it is uo disparagement to the distin- j
gnished gentleman who has succeeded j
him, or to any one who may hereafter j
do so, to assert that Rhode Island, j
however prolific she may be ot ab>e j
and patriotic sons, will never send to j
tins Chamber one who can till the i
place made vacant by his death more j
worthily than he did, nor pass from |
among us amid deeper and more general
sorrow than is felt at his loss.
This sorrow is as sincere as it is gener- j
al; it is felt as keenly on this side of!
the Chamber as on the other; as deep- j
ly by Southern men who fought in the J
Confederate ranks as by Northern j
who supported the cause of the Union
It seems, therefore, not inappropriate
that I, who during rhe war stood under |
tiie folds of the Starry Cross, should !
pay a tribute, however feebb, to that
gallant soldier who, amid all trials and
vicissitudes, in disaster as in sue"

[CorrespondeDee Augusta ChroDlcle.]
"Washington. January 18. ? The
point made by Guiteaa concerning
Virginia's hanging of John Brown
might have come from a sane man.
Indeed, Colonel Craighill, the great
engineer, who has charge of many
water courses and has become specially
famous for deepening the channel of
the Chesapeake, to the lasting benefit
of Baltimore, brought this to uiy at
teniion before any one eise. Colonel
Craighill lived in that part of the Okl
Dominion where John Brown made
his foray? and some of the parties
killed in that raid were his friends.
The Colonel shared, for a season, the
rasre that followed consternation, jnid
believed that hanging- was only too
good for such a wretch as "old Ossawattomie."
But chance threw into
his way Brown's Bible, annotated
copiously b\ the owner of ir. A careful
examination of the book and commentaries.
counled with the man's
whole career, immediately preceding
and subsequent to capture and execution,
brought complete conviction that
John Brown was an insane man, and

AUutiiiiif to rise anecdote of General
in oiiy of my letters to the :
I'ki'ouiet'e, Mr. Stephens suys thai *
ioiuctliiujf of the same kind happened;
o him, just an or the breaking out of J'
he war between the States. lie was
;eated in a cor. going 1 think, to Ilichnond,
when a sturdy soldier, in some
vay, luaurged to deprive him of it.1
I'hy Commoner made no complaint. !1
md did not so -k to dispossess the i:i- :
ruder; but, putting his carpet-bag or
ralise upon tin: lloor. sat upon it philowphicaUy.
Presently a gentleman on
:'ii train, who knew him well, approached
the soldier and said to the
- 1 ,1..
)oy us irray: \vu:m i:xuu, nu
?ou know thut the gentleman whose j
eat you have appropriated is Mr.
Stephens', the Vice-l'rosident of tiie i
Don federate States:" The soldier, at;
jnce. surprised and abashed, rose from '
ids place- and insisted upon '"Litiie i
Aleck" taking it. But the Commoner j
was equal to the occasion. Ho. prompt- i
ly spoke up as iollows: ''This gailaut j
fellow, who is serving his country in !
fhe iield, is entitled to the best com-1
forts that civilians etui bestow upon ;
iiiin: a ml I, for one, mil delighted to.
be r.ble to testify my gratitude and
contribute my mite." The mailer ter-'
urinated to every body's satisfaction. j
At Mr. Stephens' dinner party, last
Sunday, Governor Colquitt gave a j
most interes ing account of the new j
colored bishop J lolly, who, by t he I
way, i.s a Georgian, and once belonged,
I believe, to Col. Dick Johnson, who
was, in old days, mistakenly supposed
to write his sermons. Bishop Holly !
was amomr the most noted men at the
.Methodist Council In London, and lie |
nsi'de the greatest sensation there by i
defending the slave-holders of the
South from manv sweeping and f:\iin-!
cious charges. lie thanked God for j
freedom, but lie did not forgot thai i
Chri.-liunity camo to millions of his
race bee;:use of bondage, and Unit ;
thousands of slave-holders were nor j
only kind to their servants but showed j
ihem, by precept and example, the
way to Heaven. Since that talk of the
Governors. I have read a prayer, delivered
in Westminster Abbey bv this
humble, pious and noble bishop, which j
touched my mind and Heart in an un-;
common way. It is a m :s!erpieoe of j
the eloquence that springs from gen- J
nine inspiration. I believe it was to |
T'ishop Holly, when in Georgia, that j
Governor Colquitt handed a glass of '
water, which the good colored man,
with singular fecility, declined to
drink, but poured out as a lioauon 01
fraternity between the two race.';, quoting.
with apt fervor, the scriptural
words recorded by Israel's holy King,
upon an occasion of the same import.
Congressmen are busily engaged in
sending seed to their clamorous constituents,
who seem to think "garden
sass*' that has a Washington flavor
quite superior to to the home-raised
article. In numerous instances, I
tliink such persons are the victims of
misplaced confidence. All the same,
applications deluge Congressmen by
every mail, provoking groans of resignation
from the pious, and mild profanity
from th< se who lean to agnosticism.
I visit* d one of the members
who cannot afford clerical aid, but is
the model errand-boy of his district.
He was almost up to his chi.i in little
canvas-bags which the bureau of ai^riculture
had sent him for distribution.
Ilis Sunday was spent in addressing
these packages to people who are supposed
to need them, and to whom
these trifles appeal with more force
than speeches that would dwarf the
utterance of a Demosthenes or Webster.
The poor Congressman groaned
at the task before him, but I could not
help laughing at the vanity and weakness
of human nature that crop out
; with such rank luxuriance just for the
j obtainiucnt of a immtful oi' dubious
! seeilfi ' r-evcrrnie
raised from whiskey and tobacco taxes
for educational purposes, is a good one.
The Illinois Senator wants the fund
handled by the central government.
The North Carolinian desires that it
s'sail be left to the Slates. This inv
jives about the only p;*i;nc issue ieJr
to parties. Senator Logan represents
i:ie concentration ot power at Washington.
Senator Vance illustrates the
diffusion of it. among the banded comI
sho-iU! not. \v<i!sfl ?r if
upon this mid kindred questions there
w.re many discussions o rattle dry
bones. li will be time enough, howover,
to cross that bridge when we
come to it. There is sinsd! disposition
upon tiie part of the Republicans to
stir sectional embers into fiame. Ii is
surmised that tlio President iias signified
his desre to that effect?which is to
iiis credit, and on a line with his message.
Possibly he prefers a still-hunt,
as in Virginia. At any rate, the .Republicans
display significant forbearsince.
and if some of tiie great Columbian
Kentucky orators imitate their
example, the whole Republic will have
cause to congratulate itself. Everybody
here sees, feels and understands
that, politically speaking, "the future
of futurity is mighty onsartin."
The House has had an uproarious
tune in discussing the enlargement ot
the committees, as proposed by the
Committee on Rules. The overwhelming'
vote to recommit the report was a
terrible defeat for Mr. Robeson, who
has pushed himself, with brazen
effrontery, into a quasi-leadersliip of
the Republican side, after making
Keifer Speaker. Although strenuously
denied by Robeson, the real meaning
of the enlargement was, as Hoar
put it, to patch an original sore on the
Republican back. The Speaker and
his friends, Cameron and Robeson, hud
overshot the mark, and they began to
understand it. The Democrats were
not disposed to heal the wound, and
the sorehead Republicans and many
who were not malcontent, but hated
Robeson, combined to keep things as
they found them. Mr. Randall and
Mr. Blackburn tried to heln Robeson
and hi?; committee report out of the j
ditch, but their special pleading was of j
no avail. 31 r. Belford, of Colorado, j
who is a very red-faced and red-head- ;
ed man, coarse, ungainly and pngnaei- j
ous, continued his assaults. Jle show- j
ed that the first House of Rcpresenta-1
lives balloted for i nporiant committees,
in 1802, and it was not until 18-10
that the Speaker had anything like the
power lie now enjoys, lie said the
whole country had to do homage, in
this House, to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,
not to speak of Ohio. These
were the daughters of the horse-leech,
who continually cr\ "give! give!I''
lie ridiculed the fo-called statesmen of
tins d"-y when compared with Wash- j
ington, Jciferson and Madison. lie j
sarcastically advised the Speaker Jo i
appoint every member of the House on j
Lhe Ways and Means Committee, with i
r>i:e clerk each and two bootblacks, j
Doing on in this style, ilr. Belford j
hupped around vigorously and enjoyed
me ijonnyorooK !ic iiad created. 3i:\
llobeson closed the debate in an in-!
jenious harangue. Ilis face grew red- j
l]er and redder as he progressed, his (
ibeclacled eyes became more and more !
wlbons. and his gigantic stomach ;
leaded like a blacksmith's bellows, as I
;e charged up and down in the aisles, |
11 a storm of excitement. He shook j
lis fat fist at the .Republican side, and
tbnsed the dissatisfied element for j
lelping destroy party discipline. Ilis
.onorous menaces were finally silenced i
>y the Speaker's gavel, and the orator, !
Miffing like an exaggerated porpoise, j
:at down, nursing his wrath and dis- j
:ornfiture, while he glared through his j

i Mr. Webb had broken his wagon shal't
; and called at a colored man's house
i shortly after dark who lived near the
ford, and asked him to help him repair
it; but failing to get his wagon
mended he left it with the colored man,
and proceeded afoot, leading his horse,
notwithstanding the warning a id remonstrances
of the negro not to attempt
to cross the creek as it was dangerous
and Uii-afe. The next morning
his horse was seen wandering
> about loose and a search was at once
instituted, which resulted in the finding
of the body of Mr. Webb about a
niiie below the ford, on a sand bank
near the banks of the creek. The coroner
was at once notified and an inquest
held, and the jury retdrned a verdict
tliat he came to his death by accidental
drowning. Mr. Webb was about sixty-two
or sixty-three years of age and
was at the time of his untimely death

they took the ballot boxes in a private
room in the court house and defiantly
refused to allow even one of the Democratic

; Diseases of tie Tirat aii Lnags.
JSviJ* In diseases of the
| lil pulmonary organs |
a safe and reliable
remedy is invaluable.
Aye it's
is such a remedy.
* It is a scientific
conil.ination of tue J
virtues of tbe tineat f
drugs, chemically :
7^5? un'ited, of such
| Pou*er as to insure
the greatest possi
We efficiency, and j
T>Tr/""TY\T> H f~ uniformity of re- :
* A \JilciLi. suits. It strikes at J
the foundation of all pulmonary diseases, j
j affording prompt relief and rapid cures, ]
and is adapted to patients of any .age or j
either sex. Being very palatable, the j
youngest children" take it readily. Ia
j ordinary Coughs, Colds, Sore Throat,
| Bronchitis, Influenza, Clergyman's
j Sore Throat, Asthma, Croup, and
Catarrh, the effects of Ay Kit's Cherkt
Pectokal are magical, and multitudes j
| are annually preserved from serious illj
ness by its timely and faithful use. It
should l>e kept at hand in every household
for the protection it affords in sud|
den attacks. In Whooping-cough and
Consumption there is no other remedy
so efficacious, soothing, and helpful.
Low prices are inducements to tTy
some of the many mixtures or syrups,
I made of cheap and ineffective ingredients,
now offered, which, as they contain
no curative qualities, can afford
only temporary relief, and are sure to
disappoint the patient. Diseases of the
throat and lungs demand active and
effective treatment; and it is dangerous
j experimenting with unknown and cheap
medicines, from the great liability that
these diseases mav. while so trifled with.
become deeply seated or incurable. Use
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and yoa
may confidently expect the best results.
It is of acknowledged curative power,
and is as cheap as its careful preparation
and fine ingredients will allow. Eminent
physicians, knowing its composi- j
tion, prescribe it.. The test of half a
century has proven its certainty to cure
all pulmonary complaints not already
beyond the reach of human aid.
