COLUMBIA.
Wednesday Morning, Oct. 23.1867.
A ns jcducatlon of tho South.
This is one of the hobbies of the
philanthropic editor of the New York
Tribune, especially since the oloso of
the war. In its issne of the 18th, it
has another long disquisition on tho
subject, inf which it say?, that al?
though it has said a good deal, from
time to time, "about the ignorance
of the South," there is one word
more to be spoken, on the direction
that education should take at the
South, the class of people it should
bear upon, and the ends it should
aim to accomplish. The first point
is argued and the figures brought for?
ward to show that prodigious efforts
have been made by the Northern
people for the education of the ne?
groes; bnt the Tribune says that it
should not be forgotten that the
."poor -whites" of the South, includ?
ing the great mass of the Southern
people, are as ignorant as the blacks;
and have been purposely kept in ig?
norance, as the blacks were, for
social and political ends, and are as
hopeless, intellectually, as the blacks
are.
We have had, recently, great re?
spect for tho Tribune, or, rather, its
editor-in-chief; but when such a
wholesale slander as the above appears
in its leading editorial, wo are con?
strained to believe that tho rancor
of partizanship, inflamed by tho
result of tho recent elections, have
blinded the writer of this, and simi?
lar articles, to the claims of justice
and truth. What purpose is served
by thus traducing the Southern peo?
ple, in reviving slanders and lies from
the dead ashes of tho past-allega?
tions that have been time and again
refuted?
The only possible apparent object
is to keep inflamed tho passions and
prejudices of such of its readers, who
believe its accusations against the
people of the South. These allega?
tions may add a few votes to tho
party tho Tribune represents, but
that is a poor recompenso for the ut?
terance of such false accusations. In
the next sentence to that which we
have quoted, tho Tribune says: "The
South had no common schools-no
free schools for any class, white or
black." Can such wilful and wanton
falsehoods be uttered by a journal,
whose writers know they aro such,
when they pen them, and can they
be believed by one intelligent reader,
out of ten, who are in the habit of
reading the paper referred to ? Of
course, Mr. Greeley, or whoever
wrote this article, attributes the al?
leged ignorance of tho mass of the
Southern people, to tho dead institu?
tion of slavery; but for the lifo of us,
we cannot see tho object ho had in
view, unless, as wo have said, it is to
keep alive strife and discord between
tho North and the South, which we
had hoped every virtuous, intelligent
and philanthropic citizen was anxious
to suppress, and suppress effectually.
It will take a dozen of H. G.'s well
written, moderate articles to coun?
teract tho baneful effect of this gra?
tuitous batch of misrepresentations
and calumnies.
? < ? ?
JUDGE ALDRICH.-The Charleston
Courier says that General Canby has
issued an order suspending Judge
Aldrich from tho exercise of his
official functions.
Dit. J. MABIOH SIMS.-This accom?
plished South Carolinian will long bo
remembered for his recent handsome
donation to the destitute of his nativo
District, (Lancaster.) Speaking of
him, an exchango says:
"Dr. J. Marion Sims, who received
some years since the Cross of tho
Liegion of Honor from the Emperor
for services to several members of tho
Imperial family, has recently beon
decorated with tho title and insignia
of tho Ordor of St. Maurice and
Lazarus by tho King of Italy, ??nd
has been named eommnndor" first
class, of tho Order of Isabol la Ca?
tholique by tho Queon of Spain.
These lost marks of distinction have
boen conferred on tho Doctor as a
recognition of tho valuo of his late
medical work, which has been trans?
lated into all tho languages of Europe.
Dr. Sims gave, a fow evenings since,
a very bailliant reception and supper
to tho members of tho International
Medical Congress, now in session in
Paris. A largo number of tho medi?
cal savants of France, England, Ger?
many, Bansin, Spain, italy, tho
United States and tho English and
Spanish Islands woro present."
T%o If ext Presidency.
We do not know that we of the
South will have much hand in select?
ing the next President, nevertheless
it is curions and interesting to watch
the moves on the political chess?
board. The New York World sug?
gests that the plan, as unfolded by
the Tribune, is to endeavor to throw
the next Presidential election into the
House of Representatives, knowing
that that body will secure a genuine
radical in the White House, and that
radicalism is safer in their hands than
with the people. The Tribune ridi?
cules the claims and pretensions of
General Grant, whom in effect it pro?
nounces a sort of epauletted dandy.
Yet, it is apparent that if General
Grant is nominated, he will receive
the votes of the moderate or Con?
servative Republicans, notwithstand?
ing this jeering of tho Tribune. On
the other hand, an ultra radical poli?
tician, such as Judge Chase for in?
stance, will command thc support of
the ultras. Together they might get
all of the Republican party, and the
Democrats not being able to com?
mand a majority of the electoral
college, the election goes to the
House of Representatives as a matter
of course, and tho end is plain.
Tho World warns Geueral Grant
against permitting himself to be used
to play this game out, end assures
him that ho will be only beating tho
bash, that some one else may catch
the bird.
The speculations of politicians aro
entertaining; but there are so many
interests, motives, and movements to
be yet developed before tho election,
that there is no telling what General
Grant or tho parties may be inclined
to do. At present the ultra radicals
are in favor of Judge Chase. Tho
Tribune is their organ, and that pa?
per finds it necessary to put the
breaks down to stop the Grant fever.
That military chieftain is compared
to a uniformed young daudy, the aid
of the then Governor, Seward, and
his appearance upon tho political
theatre as a candidate for the Presi?
dency as a fitting occasion to repeat
tho inquiry made when the dashing
aid passed by, "for what have I been
toiling, sweating, aud worryiug in
political lifo these twenty years? It
was to make that young man feel as
well as he does to-day." General
Grant, who fought through the war
that such partizans as' tho Tribune
brought on, will possibly feel a little
riled at such talk as this, and possibly
not. He will at least think it very
cool! It is, indeed, very true that
the "toiling and sweating," and agi?
tating of the Tribune and its kind,
have filled the laud with these finely
dressed captains, and they ought to
treat them more civilly..
TiunrjTE TO SOUTHEIIN; WOMEN.
Jefferson Davis pays the following
eloquent tribute to Southern women:
"If asked for my sublimest idea of
what womau should be in time of
war, I would point to the dear wo?
men of my people, as I have seen
them during the recent struggle. The
Spartan mother sent forth her boy,
bidding him return with honor
either carrying his sword, or on it.
The women of tho South sont forth
their sons, directing them to return
with victory, to return with wounds
disabling them from further service,
or never return at all. All they had
was flung into the conflict-beauty,
grace, passion, refinement, tho ex?
quisite frivolities so dear to tho sex,
were cast aside; their songs, if they
had any heart to sing, were patriotic;
their trinkets woro flung'into the
public crucible; tho carpets from their
floors wero portioned out as blankets
to tho suffering soldiers of their coun?
try. Women bred to every refine?
ment of luxury woro homespun made
by their own hands. As nurses of
tho sick, as angola of charity, as
patient and beautiful household dei?
ties, accepting every sacrifice with
unconcern, and lightening the burden
of war by their art and blandishment,
and labor proper to their sphere, tho
dear women of tho South deserve to
take rank with tho highest noroes of
tho grandest days of tho greatest
countries."

TUE FREEDMEN'S SAVINGS AND
TRUST COMPANY.-The September
statement of this excellent institu?
tion has just been received. It exhi?
bits a total of deposits during the
month to the amount of $122,633.27,
of which $22,094.19 was received at
the office in this city. The total of
deposits which have been made since
the institution was chartered by Con?
gress amounts to $2,408,898.53, and
there is now due to depositors, as a
balance, $503,547.22. There are
twenty branch offices, tho main office
being located in Washington, JJ. G"j
to, or from, any one of these transfer
of deposits may be made, and depo?
sitors have tho privilege of'withdraw?
ing their funds at any time. Tho
investments of the institution are
made exclusively in Government se?
curities.-Charleston Courier.
A terrible occurrence has taken
place in Russia, at Kineschma, Go?
vernment District of Kostrowna,
About a hundred persons of both
sexes and all ages were returning
joyously from the fair at thc village
just named, and they entered a ferry?
boat to cross the Volga. The vessel
wa? unusually crowded, and when
nearing the opposite shore, the ferry?
man demanded payment for the fares.
The crowd of passengers, was, iu
consequence, thrown . into a state of
motion, and tho boat capsized. Not
fewer than sixty-three persons were
drowned.
A private letter from Cincinnati,
says that the country along the rail?
road, between that city nud Cleve?
land, is so parched and dried up. that
it has been set on fire in numerous
places by sparks from tho engines;
and the country far and wide has
been burned over. And an intelli?
gent, well-informed Ohian, gives it
as bis opinion, that the farmers' of
the State had well nigh lost their
whole year's labor in consequence of
the long continued and severe drought
with which the State has been visited.
MYSTERIOUS DEATH EXPLAINED.
Coroner Whiting terminated, yester?
day, the inquest on tho body of
Thomas Nugent, whose mysterious
death was mentioned in this paper
abouta week ago. The jnry rendered
a verdict of death from apoplexy.
The reports in circulation, at the time
of the death of Nugent, that he was
possessed of 81,500, which could not
be fouud or accounted for, proved,
after strict examination, to he un?
founded.-Charleston Mercury.
THE PBESIDENT AND THE.FINANCES.
The President is taking a deep inte?
rest in financial matters, and a con?
siderable portion of the annual mes?
sage will be devoted to this important
question. Mr. Johnson, it is well
understood, favors'an early resump?
tion of specie payments, and a steady
contraction of the currency to that
end.-Washington Correspondence Kew

How a slight sprinkle would relieve
the appearance of things, and make
pedestrianism pleasurable. What a
pity it is that the mohair appendages

wise, their contents could be dis?
