Sunday Morning, May 26,
Difficult te? of Reconilrnc^|on4k
Daniel Webster, one of the moat
eminent statesmen who graced the
councils of th? nation, on au occa?
sion, several years ago, discussed the
question of the future of tho Govern?
ment of the United States. It would
appear that, on the occasion referred
to, he was gifted somewhat with the
spirit of prophecy, for, in tho course
of his speech, with that splendor of
diction which always marked hjs^eloi
quouce, he warned his countrymen
of the solemn duty of guarding,
with scrupulous jealousy, the noble
heritage of constitutional freedom,
which their ancestors had won and
bequeathed to them. He depicted,
evon ut that time, the' perils to which
this noble heritage and magnificent
birth-right waa oxposed, and how
difficult it would bo to recover their
liberties, should they once be lost.
As appropriate to tho present un?
happy juncture in the political affairs
of the country, wo quote the follow?
ing eloquent extract from the speech
referred to :
'.Other misfortunes may bo borne
or their effects overcome. If war
should sweep our commerce from tho
ocean, another generation may renew
it; if it exhaust our treasury, future
industry may replenish it; if it deso?
lates and lays* waste our fields, still,
under a new cultivation, they will
grow green and ripen to futuro har?
vest. It wero but a trifle, even if the
walls of yonder capitol were to crum?
ble, if its lofty pillars should fall,
and its gorgeous decorations bo co?
vered by the dust of the valley.
"All those might bo rebuilt. But
vho shall reconstruct tho fabric of
tho demolished Government? Who
shall roar again tho well-proportioned
columns of constitutional liberty?
Who shall frame together tho skillful
architecture, which unites national
sovereignty with State rights, indi?
vidual security and public prospe?
rity? Now, if these columns shall
fall, they will be reared not again.
Like the Coliseum and the Pantheon,
they will be destined to melancholy,
mournful immortality. Bitterer tears,
however, will flow over them than
were ever shed on the monuments of
the Kornau or Grecian art, for they
will be the remnants of a moro glo?
rious edifice than Greece or Rome
ever saw-the edifico of Constitu?
tional American Liberty."
"Who shall reconstruct the fabric
of a demolished Government?" What
a momentous question! How solemnly
do these words echo from tho midst
of thc accomplished ruin he foresaw,
while be yet lived in the glory and
strength of the RepublicI We cannot
look to his successor, the Nutick shoe?
maker, as a recoustructor. We would
expect in vain to find iu the flippant
and polished Sumnor the genius or
skill for such a work. And, oh! how
different the masterly eloquenoe of
the speech wo quote from, from tho
demagoguish and partisan harangues
of him who occupies Webster's chair.
The ago of intellect nal giants, we fear,
hos passed away forever in this couu
try, and as far as tho present genera?
tion is concorned, we havo to lumout
that there aro nouo left who can
"frame tho skillful architecture which
unites natioual sovereignty with State
prosperity." All the master archi?
tects of thc temple of State havo do
parted, aud a race of pigmy politi?
cians have soized upon its pillars and
demolished tho fair fabric. Dare wo
hopo that some master spirits will yet
bo raised up who can avert thc doom
and prophecy enunciated by this great
.statesman of Massachusetts, in the
above extract, that "if these columns
should full, they would bc reared not
again." Let us hope and pray, and
each iu his sphere do his share in the

Jl.nufttcturlng Im thu State.
Th* editor ol-the firqpnTille Enter
prisej in his .jpist isaue^* m?|Dtion| a
visit Ile made, a few days sino*, to one
or twq factories io that District. Ono
factory, belonging to Messrs. John
W. Grady and Mr. Hawthorne, is situ?
ated six and a half miles below
Greenville, on Keedy Uiver, and is in
fino working order. Tho editor says
it was pleasing to observe so large a
number of contented and good-look?
ing operatives, industriously and pro?
fitably engaged in tho establishment.
In this factory, there aro 1,050 spin?
dles in running order, and twenty-six
looms, twenty of which are regulnrly
at work, making an average, nt times,
nf 1,000 yards of osnaburgs daily.
Tho spindles not only furnish yarn
for the looms, but a daily surplus be?
sides, of fifty or sixty bunches. Tho
woolen factory, on the same pre?
mises, hos n carding machine and
spinners, und turns out a very excel?
lent article of cloth. It is the inten?
tion of the owners to manufacture a
line article of jeans for the fall' mar?
ket. Connected with this establish?
ment, arc five corn and flour mills, n
saw-mill, and a small machine shop.
Greenville District has four cotton
factories, running about 3,700 spin?
dles. Batesville factory is tho largest.
We aro gratified to record these evi?
dences of enterprise and industry in
the upper Districts of thc State.
With tho magnificent water power at
our disposal, had our people capital,
we believo thoy could have five manu?
facturing establishments where only
ono is now in operation. In the upper
and middle Districts, especially, all
the way down to Columbia, there is
water power sufficient to drive all thc
factories now running ia New Eng
land. We -uro of opinion that thc
time is not distant when the people
of South Carolina will avail them
selves of these natural advantages
and transfer a portion of their capita
and industry from their old and hal'
worn ont cotton lands to more activ?
and profitable employment in manu
factories of all kinds. Such a move
ment would be a great stride to rea
tlc pud lat lon.
People soon get familiarized witl
many things deemed outrageous am
wrong by frequent discussion. Th
New York Herald, in speaking of Mr
Davis* release, refers to what it call
"the nnder-swell of indignation," oi
account of this act of the authorities
and thinks that repudiation of th
national debt will be one of the fruit
of this ignoring of tho crime of tren

There are fow citizens of the Unit*

any idea of repudiation; but mo
unpopular and impracticable vie\
on public affairs havo been seiz<
upon by ambitious and unpriuciph

AN UNTOBTUNATH 'AFFAIR. -?WI TO
gret to stake that a very melancholy
And tinforfcunato affair occurred in the
neighborhood of Clinton, at the resi?
dence of tibe deceased, on last Satur?
day evening, which resulted in the
'death ol Elias Compton. It seems
that some family difficulty had oc?
curred, creating a rencounter between
the deceased and his wife's brother,
John M. Thompson, a youth, who.
was living with them, in wbioh the
deceased was stabbed several times
with a pocket knifo by his brother
in-law, from the effects of which ho
died on Sunday oveuiug.
A bit of sharp practice has been
going on at Hudson, New York. A
man contracted to purchase a farm.
Tho "forfeit" was 8500. A few weeks
subsequent to this transaction, a
third party came und offered the
original owner an advance of $1,500
for the farm. The seller "backed
water" aud paid the forfeit, when
purchaser number two "didn't want
to buy." Several parties have been
duped in tho same manner within a
A strong story of coincidences is
told by on English paper-that at
Liverpool two women in different
localities, each carrying a grand?
child down a stairway, stumbled and
fell. In each instance thc child was
uninjured, but the womnu died the
sumo evening. The unmo of each
womau was Elizabeth Flommiug.
Wo should rather bo excused from
believing tho whole of that story.
We aro willing to admit that the two
women fell down stairs.
