WOMAN WHIFFING IN THE NORTH.
To the Editor of the, Charleston Baity News:.
DEAS SIB : This morning X saw extracted in your
paper another-account of-flogging young ladies at
school, this time apparently coi a more wholesale
scale of proceeding than uauaL Than usual, I say,
and anotfier account, because -what first struck me
on reading the transaction was, not its barbarity'
and indecency, but the fact that it was one of
many similar occurrences during the past year
throughout the North and West. It looks as if
we were going back to the OBBXLXUS and Dr. BUSBY
plan of education.
"Whv this retrograde movement in an age boast?
ing of its progress ? Some may suggest that the
cruelty is epidemic, as we know that crimes some?
times are: But the cause seems to me to lio deep?
er, and to be connected with grave political, no
less than social tendencies.
I For ten years and more, previous to the war, the
principle of individual liberty had been carrying
itself by its excess to?a reductus ad absurdum. Of
government in the proper sense, there waa very
t?e anywhere. OT national government there
was really none. The citizens of our State had
very imperfect rights in another, for whatever
local authority existed was chiefly supported by
popular caprice. The great cities were ruled by
rowdies. Such a state of things could not fail: to
have its social effects. The various,.agitations cf
the""woman question," in its difiorent forms, are
notorious, and the independence and insubordina?
tion of American children were prov orbiaL
When the crash came, it seemed as if what had
solong existed only iii name must bo at onoe dis?
solved, in fact. But when it became evident' that
the North would make no .timid or temporary
effort to preserve the national existence, the pre?
diction was general abroad, and not uncommon at
home, that the United States could preserve them?
selves as such only by transforming themselves
into a strong centralized government, at any rate
a strongjgbvernnient in the European sense.
Immediately after the close ox the war appear?
ances seemed to belie these ^predictions. Tee even
then there were some who did not trust the serene
sky, some - slaves in- the chariot who bade the
victors look behind them, and remember that
they were mortal. . ;
The first hopes were delusive, the political sky
darkened. tSecond thoughts proved notth? best, as
they often prove, despite the proverb. The current
of opinion among 'Sae victorious majority has set
strongly towards a strong government, a cen?
tralized irresponsibility, which may call itself
"Democratic" or "BadicaL" but has not entirely
renounced its connection with oligarchic monopo?
lies. The chief point about it, however, is that it
does not stand on forms or hesitate to use force.
Some social reaction must accompany this political
reaction. We aee it already in the matter of edu?
cation. The War has farrriliarigArl thft prynlftr
mind with tho notion of whipping as a necessary
process.- - . :i: . r ' . <.'". ? '.V/'"-*
Thia is ?ot a mere theoretical Saucy.of mino; ,The

occurred there last summer; A girl of sixteen yrs?
thrashed by three teachers with "an instrument

BISHOP EILIOTT.-This vene rabie prelate, ac
? cording to appointment, administered the rite of
! confirmation to some eight or ten persons. Not
i withstanding the very unpropitious weather, a
. goodly number attended St. Paul's on Sunday morn
mg. and hoard an eloquent discourse from the
Bishop. In the afternoon he preached a sermon in
the Church of tho Atonement full of comforting
nope to his people.-Augusta Constitutionalist.
SENTENCED FOB, TWENTY-ONE YEAHS.-The Mont?
gomery Mad, of Saturday, says: "James Joidan,
formerly a clerk in the postoffice, was sentenced
j-esterdayto twenty-one year ..' confinement in .?ha
State Penitentiary, by the United States District
Court, for purloining valuable letters in the post
office. We understand that the prisoner will be
Bant forthwith to Wetumpka."
The same paper says: "In the case of tho Gov?
ernment vs. George W. Gayle, for treason, a con?
tinuance was granted for the United States until
the nest term of the Court."
WILFUL HOMICIDE.-On Saturday afternoon
about six o'clock, a colored drayman named Alick
Hicks met with his death at the hands of another
colored drayman named Bichard Murray, in Maga?
zine Ward, at the stable yard, where they kept their
teams, under the following circumstances: Both
draymen had been engaged hauling corn from tho
Atlantic and Gulf Bailroad. After finishing their
day's labor they repaired to the stable lot, when,
as far as we have been informed, without the
slightest provocation, Murray drew a pistol, and,
presenting it, said to Hicks, "I am going to shoot
you,*'and as Hicks raised his arm to reach his
dray hook he fired, the ball entering his side,
causing his death immediately. A coroner's jury
was summoned yesterday afternoon, and a verdict
of murder rendered against Murray, who secreted
himself and had not been arrested at last ac?
counts. Hicks was a quiet and peaceable man,
never indulged in liquor,. and was respected by all
who knew him. Murray, on the contrary, was ad?
dicted to stron? drink, and was under the influ?
ence of liquor when he committed the murderouF
EMIGRATION.-A party is now organizing in St.
Louis, Mo., for emigrarion to Venezuela. At a
recent moeting in that city, the original doed of
the Venezuelian Government, granting two hun?
dred and forty thousand square miles of territory
to American emigrants, through Br. Price and
others, was then produced, examined, and inter?
preted by Mr.. Anslyne, a native of Venezuela, and
pronounced correct. Mr. Anslyne also, exhibited ,a
.sample of small corn, from Venezuela, of seven
-week'sigrowth, resembling wheat, out of which ?
fine article of flour eau be manuiaetured. He also
exhibited a sample' of cotton, comparing favorably
.with the finest sea island cotton, three crops of
which can be annually raised. It was announced
at this meeting that a party of one hundred and
fifty ladies and gentlemen would leave Raleigh,
Virginia (?), for Venezuela, as soon as news was.
received of the departure of the St. Louis emi?
grants. This will be very soon.
WISCONSIN WHEAT CHOP.-The Milwaukee cor?
respondent of the Chicago Tribune gives the fol?
lowing estimate of the wheat crops of Wisconsin:
The high price of wheat the past fall has called out
an unusual share-some estimate one-half-of the
crop, at this ear-y period. But 1 think two-fifths a
fair estimate. Up to the 1st'instant, about eleven
hundred, thousand bushels more had been received
at this port than for the same timi, -eleven months
-of last year. The. price has ranged so high that
the value of this years wheat crop, in the market,
will fully equal, ir not exceed, that of last year.
. MICHIGAN CHOPS_The Detroit Free Press says
that the last crop of winter wheat in Michigan
*may fairly challenge, comparison as to quality
with any that was ever grown in any country."
The oat crop was excellent, and exceeded, the be?
fore unexampled crop of 1865 by more than a mil?
lion bushels. The rye crop is about the same as
last year. Barley has done .better this year than
.ever before. The Free Press estimates the Value
of the crops of the present year at $49,000,000.
THE COEN CHOP.-The Chicago Bepublican is
informed thatihe damage to corn in the West,
from floods and frost, is much greater than has
been generally supposed. It should be remember?
ed, however, that more ground was planted with
corn this year than ever before, and' that the
damage and loss are looaL
THE CHARLESTON AND MERCHANTS' STREET RAIL?
WAY COMPANY OP CHARLESTON.-A number of .pub?
lic spirited merchants of our seaport city have
applied to -the General Assembly for a charter for a
new street railway company in Charleston, and the
object which they particularly desire to effect is a
connection between ,the several railroad depots
and **i2-Wharves. Now it has always seemed to us
a s?ic?ge contradiction, that .it was a good thing to
use railroad transportation 130 miles, and that just
at that terminal point, when an additional mile and
a half would land the freight upon. the~ market
place where it was to be sold, railroad transporta?
tion was a very bad thing.
It would, appear that recently some attention
has been given in Charleston to this subject. In
view of facilities offering at other shipping points,
it is intended to; make a considerable outlay for s
suitable road, over which the ? freight from thc
Planter's Bailroad station in the interior can bc
drawn through the city by horses t? ? the factor's
-door in Charleston. .. .. ... ....
i We allude to the subject to express bur heart;
approval-it looks as though Charleston was alive
to the importance., ot increasing her facuities ot
trade-and to no class' will this enterprise com'
mend itself with greater favor than to cotton plan?
ters, who are annual, loosers by the wear, and teai
incident to handling their crop between raOroac
depots and the wharves. It must haye the efiec
of inducing cotton shipments to Charleston, ant
as every additional 100 bales of cotton gives mon
employment to the. working , mon. of that city, i
maybe considered a good move for everybody..
'.. PUNISHMENT TN THE ARMY.-The War .Depart
ment,- General Orders No. 95, prescribes that th
legal punishments for soldiers by sentence of cour
martial-according to the offence and jurtsdictioi
of the court-are death, imprisonment on brea*
and water diet, solitary confinement, hard labor
forfeiture of pay and allowances, discharge fron
service, reprimands, and, when non-commissi?net
officers,, reduction to. the ranks. The period 0
confinement shall not exceed one year. Solifcar
confinsment, or confinement on bread- and wates
shalt not exceed fourteen days at a. time, within
terv?ls between the periods of such confinernen
of sot less than such periods', and not exceedin;
eighty-four days in the year? Enlisted men, fo
purely military offences, shall hot be sentenced t
confinement .ia the States prison or penitentiarj
and when soldiers for other than military offence
are sentenced to confinement in a penifcentian
they will be dishonorably discharged the service ?

court. The ; ball and chain shall not be used as
punishment._ . . ............ . ..

(attached to the carriage wareroom bf Messrs.

tents, consisting of cabinet and carriage-maker's
toola, was entirely consumed. Owing to the excr
ti ons of the firemen, assisted by the rain, the fire
was confined to tho portion of tho building in
which it originated, although, at one time, it was
feared that MessrB. B. & C's entire establishment
would bc swept off. The fire is believed to have
originated tom an improperly protected stove?

Major Willis for Alderman W?.rd No. 4t.
This gentleman having accepted a nomination for re?
election to th". Board of Aldermen to represent the
Fourth Ward, wo trust that the citizens of Charleston
will avail themselves of this opportunity to show that
they appreciate the services of one who has devoted
himself to the best interests of tho city. During the past
municipal year Major WILLIS has shown a devotion to
the duties involvedupon him, as a member of Council,
which should entitle him to the support of every good
citizen. Ko member of the Board has been more alive
to the interest of an impoverished people than our j
worthy friend, and we hopo to see him returned by an
overwhelming vote from a grateful COMMUNITY.
Dlr. B. Roddin.
This day the citizens of Charleston will be called upon
to deposit their votes for Aldermen of several Wards, and
while we would not derogate from the fitness of any of
the candidates now before the public, we would suggest
the name of Mr. B. BODDIN for Ward No. 4.
This gentleman is not ono of those who idle away val?
uable time, or who has for years past been a hstcknied
politician. Those having business relations with him
must have discovered his industry and business capacity.
W& feel aBsur'ed, from our personal knowledge, he will
devote his time to the discharge of his public duties; and
being a plain, practical man, will render faithful and
valuable services to the community. Such men are not
only looked for but deairable. A TAX PAYEE.
H. IS. Olney for Alderman, of Ward No. 6.
The nomination of this sterling yoong Charlestonian
for a seat in Council, elicits general approval among all
liasses of the community.
It's a hopeful sign of the times when young men show
a willingness to take an interest in city affairs by giving
their time and energies in the important .matter of a
faithful administration of our municipal government.
Lieut. OLNEY'S friends do not rest his claims,- as is too
often thc case in election-canvasses, upon his devotion to
the lost cause, but rather upon his undoubted qualifica?
tion, firmness of character, intelligence, and progressive
[eelings in regard to the future of Charleston, which
points him out as one whose actions, in all matters of pub?
lic concern, can be safely trusted. Lieut. OLNEY has one
qualification which i? of primary importance in a faithful
ifficer-he has an opinion of his own, and ie not afraid to
say Tes or No, as he thinks it; and he would not reserve
ais judgment, without a sufficient reason, for any office

' AN OLD CITIZEN.
: 7 J H. B. Olney.
This gallant gentleman is proposed by bis- friends for a
seat in Council, ondit ia hoped that the tax-paying commu?
nity will give him their cordial support. With some men
place t's success. To get office, by hopk or by crook, to give
ap a settled conviction for a temporary gain of power, is
too often a common ' occurrence in our community.
Lieut. OLNEY is not of this class. He illustrates, in his
own life, that tho worth of a man ia in personal attri?
butes, not in the surroundings of office; that aa open
declaration of opinion is better than the most ingenious
and evasive reply, even if it brings with it tho trappings
We want in the City Council men like him, who will
act always for the public' good; who will see tb it that
measures looking to the advancement of the city are not
dwarfed by a too narrow policy-accommodating itself, it
may be, to the present, but full of trouble in the not dis?
tant future, * ; /
Lieut. OLNEY has a clean record and the most irre?
pressible- energy, and will do a full share of any work
that comes;to him. THE JACKET OF GREY.

Citizens of -Charleston, you are called upon this day
to vote for an Alderman for Ward No- 6. How will you
cast your vote ? that's the question. Will you allow the
gentlema?-w&oias stood between you and danger to be
defeated? I know you vtflrii3t. .-..T^ieu to the polls, and

The City Election.
The citizens, of Charleston are called upon to-day to fill
too vacancies in the Board of Aldermen, and as we feel
soi?e interest in Ward No. 6, where we r?side, and in
which one of the vacancies exist, we' would desire to
bring prominently before the public the name of Mr. ADAM
B. GLOVER, a gentleman whose social poaiti on and whose
mercantile ab iii ty so eminently fits bim for a seat in
Conseil. With active business habits, a large acquaint?
ance, and a capital knowledge of matters connected with
city affairs, it seems to ua that he is a very proper person
to entrust with an office of this ft<nf? We would also,
wish to- touch upon then generous heart,, and many acts of
goodness on the part cf. Mr. GLOVES*, did we net rear to
give offence, and dlcLwe not feel confident that when his
kind, daeda were done, it was hopedtbat they were never
tab?, spoken of again.. A WELL WISHES.
Adam B. Glover, 3Ssq?
.The gentleman abovo named has been presented to the
community of-Charleston for Alderman of Ward No. &.
He is too well known and appreciated ta require any
comment; yet we would hold him up to public view as
one folly quaBaed to represent us In the. Councils of the
city, and' who;.i doubtless, would add ranch to the bu si
nena tact ansi capacity of the practical members cf that
body. For many years, he has been connected in mer?
cantile business, and has given abundant proof of his en?
ergy, zealand ability. Such are the men we want to'
manage and direct our municipal affairs-men who are
.not on|y able to examine into the condition of our
Treasury, ant hava firmness and decision of character to
prevent burdens;from being-placed upon the people
to gratify the favorite few, who are always clamoring for
more. 8uch naen of independence are seldomto be
itamd, and Whm discovered will be appreciated by a dis?

The officers and members, of the Palmetto Fire: Knyine
Company having determined to- order a steam fire en?
gine of Messrs. HUNNE?IA? & Co.'s manufacture; ore ne?
cessitated to ask aid of their fellow-citizens. Da doing so
they are aware that in the Department at this timo there
are six steamers. The effect of the introduction ol steam
on the hand engines has tendered in a manner to lessen
the energies of their company,, and as they have been, as
will be seen, twenty-six years laboring in the good causa
for the benefit of our community, they trust their appeal
will be responded to with that liberality that ha? always
characterized their fellow-citizens towards them. To-do
good is our aim, and to accomplish this end and save
an old association, we ask whatever aid cm be afforded,
and by cur strenuous exertions hope to receive.the ac?
knowledgment from those who assist us that we are
working in a common cause. We are aware that our
community have subscribed most liberally to all compa?
nies, but we trust they will not forget the Palmetto Fire

A Brief Dialogue between Common
Sense and a Dyspeptic.
COMMON SESSE. Is it possible for any human being
to enjoy life while Buffering from indigestion ?
DYSPEPTIC. NO more than it is possible to be happy
on the rack. I speak from, experience.
COMMON SENSE. Suppose, then, that a remedy for
this terrible -complaint is offered, under the guarantee of
hundreds of individuals of high social standing, who.
have tested, the effect of the article in their own cases, is
lt not unwise in any one ?fflcted with the disease to neg-.
lect giving it a trial?
DYSPEPTIC. Unquestionably. I admit the premises..
What is the deduction?
COXMON SENSE. Give heed. HOSTETTER'3 STOM?
ACH BITTERS is such a remedy. The evidence ol its ef?
ficacy aa a cure for dyspepsia is positive, complete, un*
denied, and undeniable. Have you ever ascertained by
experiment whether it is or is not the infallible cure that
it is claimed to be?.
DYSPEPTIC I confesa that I have not.
COMMON SENSE. Then you stand convicted of miry by
your own showing. If the same strong proofs that have
been advanced in favor of this great tonic had been sub?
mitted to. yon with regard to any business speculation,
yon would have, gone into it at once. Is HEALTH of less
importance than the dollars and cents which no man can
enjoy without it $ ~
DYSPEPTIC. No, no, no-a thousand times no. Com?
mon Sense, you azo right. I will give the Bitters a
-COMMON SENSE. DO SO, and I shall never more have
reason to address you as a dyspetie.

Worshipful Sir: Tho principles of Masonic teaching, if

No one has ever entered the inner Temple, and devout?
ly bowed at her mystic altars, that did not catch some
glimpses of her beauty and grandeur, and made to ex?
claim, "the half was not told." Our Brother ha3 pre?
sided over us?for years, and ministerod to the wants of
the poor, cheered up the desponding, and dried tho tear
of the widow. Let us then, in this Godlike charity, hold
up his hands in tho offices of Love, and bo not unmind?
ful of the duty we owe. Be it thereforo
Resolved, That the zeal, energy and devotion of our
Brother W. J. Tnnr, Worshipful Master, deserves our
commendation and praise.
