It was many hours before he was quieted. The phy? sicians say the disease is not hydrophobia, and are somewhat mystified as to its precise nature. During his paroxysms he called for and drank profusely of water. -Rev. Dr. J, C.

He has been, in addition to being pre? siding elder of the New Orleans District, edi? tor of the New Orleans Christian Advocate. He is a graceful and forcible writer, a man of much experience with men and things. Has travelled oxtenEively both in this and the old world, and is perfectly conversant with the usases of his church. Rather dogmatic and austere in demeanor, but clear lu judgment and safe in counsel. Perhaps none better could have been selected. The Nineteenth Century and Thc News. It is at all tin es unpleasant for the jour? nalist to engage in personal controversy, especially with his contemporaries of the press, and we need hardly say how doubly disagreeable is the case when he is forced to encounter one who wields the pen of the editor while clad in the garb of a more sacred calling. Nothing but tho vindication of personal character from foul aud public aspersion induc?s us, thus publicly, to reply to tho following uote and enclosure banded to us yesterday: (ENCLOSURE.) [From The Charleston News, May 27.] We find the following paragraph in the "Edi? torial Workshop ? of the June number of The Nineteenth Century: "It ls time to have done with this foolishness. Grave men cannot afford to be led and de? graded by an Irresponsible News sheet, edited .By men who declare that they 'do not care a --for principled " This statement, If it be meant to refer to the editors of THE CHARLESTON NEWS, is both slanderous and false. (NOTE FRO Bf THC REV. W. W. HICKS.) CHARLESTON, 8. C., May 27, 1870. Messrs. Riordan, Dawson ? Co., Editors Daily News, Charleston, S. C.: GENTLEMEN-The accompanying slip was taken from your paper this morning. In re? ply, I beg to say that Mr. Riordan, one of the editors and proprietors of THE DAILY NEWS, ls correctly quoted in " The Nineteenth Centu? ry v for June. Therefore, the "statement" is not " slanderous and false," but unquestiona? bly true. The foUowiug memoranda may help Mr. Riordan's memory : 1. The place where the "statement" was made-Tun NEWS OFFICE. 2. The Time-The 23d day of March, 1870. 3. The person to whom made-The business manager of The Nineteenth Century, Captain C. E. Chichester. 4. Witnesses-Almighty God, and thc Editor of The Nineteenth Century. Gentlemen, do jrdo deny ? Then wc proceed to the publication of proof. You will oblige by giving place to this in your columns. Respectfully, W. WATKIN HICKS, The Editor of The Nineteenth Century. Comparing the allegations contained in this note with the offensive publication in the magazine, it will be seen that the Rev. Mr. Hicks has broadly charged against the "men" who edit TRK NEWS an atrocious expression which he now claims to have heard from only one of their number. How far, then, his sweeping accusation against the editors generally of this paper is consis? tent with a decent regard for truth and fair? ness, not to speak of Christian charity, it will be for the public to judge. But, passing over this point, the state? ment in the Nineteenth Century is a gross and, we are constrained to believe, a mali? cious misrepresentation of what was said by Mr. Riordari,on the occasion referred to. It was in a casual private conversation, that Captain Chichester, then but recently re? turned from a sojourn of many months in the West, expressed regret that THE^EWS should have acquiesced in the results of the Reconstruction legislation of Congress, re? marking that the policy which it now advo? cates involved, in his opinion, a sacrifice of principle. Dissenting from this view, Mr. Riordan said, in substance, that OBJ- attempt oo the part of the whites to cliug to what he considered the dead issues of the past, and which Captaiu Chichester seemed to regard as "principle," would proloug indefinitely the rule of the ignorant aud corrupt, aud would, therefore, be worse than folly. Such was the exact spirit, if uot the exact language, of the opinion maintained by Mr. Riordan in the conversation with Cap? tain Chichester. Mr. Riordan did not give utterance to the sentiment attributed to him by the editor of The Nineteenth Cen? tury. And nobody knows this better than the Rev. W. Watkin Hicks himself. Slander and detraction are edged tools, which often wound thcv.e who use them incautiously. And Charleston is changed, indeed, if any man may hope to gain favor with his fellows, by distorting a private con? versation for the gratification of persoual spleen an'd dissatisL. , ambition. The Stmpiou Bend. We print this morning a letter from Co? lumbia, which shows that our correspondent j was misinformed, and that Governor Scott and General Stoibrand are not the bonds ! men of the forger Sampson. We make this contradiction cheerfully and without reserve; ^or we had rather, at any time, slight a friend than do an intentional injustice to our own enemies or those of our own people. We are not yet advised of the source from which our correspondent received his infor . mali on; but we are confident that his au? thority was sufficiently-good to fully justify the statement which he forwarded to THE 1 NEWS. Industrial Activity. The Walhalla Courte- ?-ays that there is now more activity in mechanical operations in its section than was ever before known. Imn diately around Walhalla three steam saw mills are daily engaged in converting the forest trees into lumber for building pur? poses. These cannot supply the demand for lumber, though every creek also has its saw mill. The supply of timber i3 almost inexhaustible, the market is flush, and the industrious are flourishing. Carpenters, painters and every class of artisans find constant employment and good wages. The Enterprise speaks in highly compli? mentary terms of the colored and wrapping papers made by the Greenville Paper Mil:. Join Political Reform to Industrial Ac? tivity, and South Carolina ^vill soon work her way out of the slough of difficulty and despair. The Roll of Honor. The following named counties have al? ready appointed their delegates to the Re? form Convention, which assembles in Colum? bia on June I5th next: 1. Charleston.May 16 2. Barnwell.May 21 And notice has been given that the fol? lowing named counties will appoint their delegates on the days specified : 3. Union.May 25 4. Orangeburg. .June C 5. Marlon.May 25 C. Williamsburg.June 6 7. Laurens.June 6 8. Kershaw.June 6 9. Marlboro'.June C 10. Spartanburg.June 6 11. Newberry.June 6 12. Chester.June 6 13. Horry.June 6 H.Lexington_?.June 6 15. Richland.June 6 16. Darlington.June 6' 17. Edgefleld.June 6 18. Oconee.June 6 19. York.June 6 20. Fairfield.June 6 21. Greenville.June 6 Sales-day in June being apparently the most generally convenient time for holding county meetings, we suggest that the re? maining counties give notice at once that they will appoint their delegates on that day. The number of delegates appointed in Charleston was equal to double the repre? sentation of the county in both branches of the General Assembly. In order that the Convention may be both large and influen? tial, our sister counties are invited to ap? point delegates on the same basis. THE Greenville Mountaineer hears it ru? mored that any new recruits who may join the Radical ranks will be received "on pro? bation," and will have " to bide a time " before they get any pap. The Mountaineer, therefore, says: "This is a wise move on " the part of the Republicans; but it is a " bad one for the opposite party, who are " thu3 deprived of the use of one of the " sluices through which much that was cor " rupt and unreliable was sloughed off." The Nineteenth Century. The June number of The Nineteenth Century opens with a vigorously written article upon "The Status and Prospects of the Negro."' We hope, however, to be able to prove to the writer, in the course of a few 3'oars, that South Carolina can live and prosper although she has a majority of black votes. "Morna EI " verley " and " The Storm and Sunset " are continued. Ex-Governor Perry gives a brief sketch of the life of John Quincy Adams, and Mr. G. B. Lamar, Sr., of Savannah, joins bat? tle with Governor Perry over the official corpus of ex-President Andrew Johnson. Mr. Lamar denies that Mr. Johnson is "aman of "great wisdom, ability, patriotism and firm " ness," and writes him down one who " is " not in any degree entitled to the just admi " ration of any honest man.'' The principal poem in the number is " Ernesdyl," by Mr. P. J. Malone, of Charles? ton. The very name shows the creative power and originality of this rising young'poet, who will, we trust, be properly encouraged. In the poem, which is about two hundred lines in length, are two passages which should be remembered. This Is one : "The forty rears of gathered snows glide down, From hts bent shoulders like an avalanche. And once again erect in youth he stands." The thought may bc as old as the hills, but it ls well expressed, which is a great deal now a-days. And this couplet is pretty, even if the second line hails a little : " Just as the genial sun of April strikes Into the twig a life of buds aud blooms." There are, as In the greatest works, some awkward passages. The use of walkt, as the preterite of the verb to walk, looks like stretch? ing a point, and such an expression as " he " prides in most " is not English, although it may be used in -" That blue mountaiu range That 'joirs thc Carolinas." The realistic touches in " Ernesdyl " are brimful of pathos. What might be called ldeal reallsra is Mr. Maloue's forte. He can speak of a spade so that it will sound like a double action steam plough, and throws over the simplest words the mantle of poetic thought What, for instance, could bc sweeter than this lament of the wife of the Lord of Ernesdyl : M I've had no luck this year-no luck. At least, as ouce I had with eggs and milk; The good old times arc gone; hens lay so UL" Who cannot sympathize with " thc beautiful old lady," who connects the fall of empires and thc crash of worlds with the degeneracy of cows and the dearth of spring chickens ? Again : * Last year I lost three jlne calve.* ia one day. All by one sirukc uflBbuUng." No one will have theTardihood to deny that this is true poetry, and within the comprehen? sion of every man and boy (and calf?) in the 8tate. The star of Tennyson must pale its ineffectual fires. , * Mr. Malone will allow us to hint that some of Iiis rhymes are " a leetle " defective. Lou and new will not.do. Bush, to pair with thrush, is not as good as brush. And Limb and climb will never go together-why not try Tim ? Wc did want to know what is "the knee" of a dairy-house, and whether "allen Jars" arc intended for holding foreign preserves but this would be hypercriticism ; the more particularly as an indulgence in eleven-year oki Scuppernong wine, the make of Dame Ernes, of milk and chicken memory, obfus? cates the mighty brain of thc poetic historian of the glories ol' " Ernesdyl." He quaffs the wine " And what she said or show'd me afterward, I cannot state with such exactitude: In fact, I did the talking most.y then." This frauk confession brings this pastoral poem to a close. The Nineteenth Century, wc omitted to say, is now "a handsome book of ninety-six " pages." Qfoncahonal.

We beg leave respectfully to call the attention of the public to our Superior Flavoring Extracts. As ten years have now elapsed since we first In? troduced them to the notice of the American pub? lic, we deem lt unnecessary at present to enter into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac. There Ls hardly a eity or town of any note In the country Into which they have not found their way. The reason or this widespread popularity and dally Increasing demand ts owing entirely to their peculiar excellence and Intrinsic worth. Being determined to make them the Standard Ex? tracts or the day, we have still further Improved their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be? lieve that they stand without a ri va!. Our Vanilla Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and delicacy of flavor. It is a strictly pure and high? ly concentrated Extract of Vanilla Beans. In short, we think lt the best that ls made, at least, this ls the decision of the best Judges lu the coun? try. We don't pretend to compete lu price with many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the day, which are really bnt worthless compounds, undeserving of the name. For quality and style, we defy competition. DAVIS A MILLER'S PURE YEAST POWDER.
