WHIT1 CLOUD, KAH8AS:
Thirtiay, : : Deceiter 27, 1890.
Tire Thiko - Did axd Dobe." The
8oath Carolina Convention, by a OBani-
raoas vote, haa passed the Onlinaneoof
Secession, and Hie State is now prepar
ing to set np on her own hook. Com
missioners an to be sent to Washington,
to treat with the President for the release
of the Government property in that Blalo,
Tfca disunion men in different States are
firing salutes in honor of South Caroli
na's secession ; bnt beyond this, it seems
to. create verj little sensation.
Sooth Carolina has been a sore boil
npon the body politic; bnt now she has
-broken, and Dr. Lincoln will shortly
put her through a course of treatment
Mrnich will speedily heal over the sore,
leaving the Union healthier for it. To
show how great would be the loss to the
country, were South Carolina to remain
ontwe.need only refer to the iUmof
post offices. She pays into the Govern
moot postal revenno, in round numbers,
091,000 per annum, while the expense
to the Government, for conveying her
mails, etc., is 8192,000. Thus the Post
Office Department loses 8101,000 annu
ally, to supply South Carolina with
mails alone. Other things, we doubt
not, are in proportion.
Bloody Plot. It is rumored that
large bodies of men are secretly organiz
ing in Virginia and Maryland, for the
purpose of attacking Washington City,
on or before the 4th of March, assassins
ting Lincoln and Hamlin, and breaking
up or taking possession of the Govern
ment. While some affect to hoot at the
idea, others, who profess to know some
thing of the plans, express great fears
npon' the subject. The friends of Lin
coln and Hamlin will be on hand in suf
ficient force to slightly interfere with this
arrangement; but if the infamous plot
should bo carried out, it would be the
signal for. a deluge of blood, such as the
-world has never witnessed. The dirani
onr controversy would close then.
LiATE and iNTEnESTiNO. Un the eve
ning" of the 26th inst. Maj. Anderson
evacuated Fort Moultrie, spiked the gnns,
and demolished the Fort with fire. He
transferred his force to Fort Sumpter,
where he is strengthening the defences,
intending to hold out to tho last. It is a
pleasure to know that the honor of the
nation is guarded by such gallant men as
Maj. Anderson, in tho peril brought on
by the imbecility of the miserablo old
-dotard of a President.
From the movements of troops and
ships at the Navy Yards, it is thought
that several war vessels have at length
been ordered to Charleston harbor.

Kansas Relikf. T.P. Herrick, Esq.,
Secretary of the Kansas Relief Commit
tee, publishes weekly statements of the
receipts and distribution of aid by the
Committee, by which we see that justice
is being done to every part of the Terri
tory, as far as it lies in the power of the
Committee to do so. Whatever there
may be to complain of, or whatever im
position may be practiced, with regard
'to Kansas aid, we feel assured that the
Belief Committee at Atchison is not ac
countable for it.
Bbsioned. Gov. Medary has resigned!
He gives almost two colnmns of reasons
for so doing, ont of which no meaning
can be made, except that his " forte" is
editing a newspaper, the times are squal
ly, and be feels that it devolves upon him
to save the Union, by returning to his
"forte" and "pitching in." Beebe is
now Governor. It would be a pity if
Kansas were admitted in time to nip in
the bud that message which he has pre
pared for the coming session of the Leg
islatures ' Two telling speeches were made
in the Senate, last week one by Wade,
of Ohio ; the other by Johnson, of Ten
nessee. They were both emphatically
Union, and in favor of forcibly resisting
secession. That's the right kind of talk.
It is r the true ground for Tennessee to

Hepatitis or Liver Complaint,
DYSPEPSIA AND-SICK. HEADACHE!
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the edge of
the ribs, increase on pressure; sometimes
the pain is in the left side; the patient is
rarely able to He on the left side; sometimes
the psin is felt under the shoulder blade,
and it frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for z
rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is
affected with loss of sppetit and sickness,
the bowels in general are costive, sometimes
alternative with Luc; the head is troubled
with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part. There is gene
rally a considerable loss of memory, accom
panied with a painful sensation of having
left undone something which ought to have
been done. A slight, dry cough is some
times an attendant. The patient complains
of weariness and debility; he is easily startled,
his eet are cold or burning, and he com
plains of a prickly sensation of the skin ;
his spirits are low; and although he is satis
fied that exercise would be beneficial to him,
yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try. it. In fact, he distrusts every
remedy. Several of the above symptoms
sttend the disease, but cases have occurred
where few of them existed, yet examination
of the body, after death, has shown the
uvea to have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Da. M'Laki's Livik Pills, in cases or
Acuc and Fsvik, when taken with Quinine,
are productive of the most happy results. No
better cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would advise
all who are afflicted with this disease to give
them a tai trial.

PoMTieix- The great political campaign of
H6D Is elasad., The battle haa been fought aad
won, and the eagles of victory perch on. the .
publican banners. Asbabasi Limcom has been
tricmphantly elected President of tbe United
States for fouryears from the 4th of March, 1851 .
We arc entering upon year that will be
memorable in the annals of Amerieanipolitics.
The Firs-Esters of the Cettea States have un
dertaken to braak up the AstiritanJJnJon.
The -people have desidad against.thri al toe
ballot box, and they raroae to' ssbmit te the
rcrdlcl unless thsir demands ahall be Bplie4
with, which are as follows : , vs.
Dxx akds or tub Fias-Eatxbs. 1st- That
tha Free States shall payYor all fbgRfvea front
labor who escape. 2d. That all flute laws
against kidnapping shall be repealed. 3d.. That
Slavary shV.l be extended into all the Territo
ries and protrcud by a Federal Slave Code.
4th. That the Slav traffic shall ba re-opened
in the District of Columbia. 5th. That a' law
shtll bt ps'aed granting the right to slaveholders
to travel and sojeurn in the Free Slates, accesa
pattied by their alaves.
In case of non-compliance with these pro
slavery demands, the Fire-Eaters threaten te
secede from the Union, and set np a Seatbara
Confederacy, re open the African Slave trade,
and attempt to foand a great alaveholding ess
pira.hy absorbing Mexico, Central Amerita
aad the Islands of tha Gulf. Suea is the pre'
gramma of the Disunion!!.
In this ensia it behoove every sound patrlwt
and friend of the Unioa and Constitntion to
stand bf Lincoln's Administration as the 'old
Democrats stood by Gen. Jackson when assailed
by South Caroliaia nullifiers. The free North
must net ba bullied nor frightened by the arro
gant oligarchy into a base surrender of lis dear
est rights and most cherished principles .
Othsb QursTioas. And thaw are other Im
portant matters to come before the sew Admin
istration. Among these are: Free Homesteads
for the Landless; Improvements of Rivers and
Harbors; Construction of a Railroad to the
Pacific ; Encouragement of the Manafactariag
and Farming industry of the country; Retrench
ment and Reform in the Administration of
Government ; a restoration. In short, of the
earlier and purer daya of the Republic. On; all
these questions, the'Taiscicx will ever befeand
an earnest champion on the side ef Freedom,
Right, and Patriotism.
