The BYlUab Ocvornmcnt mad tit*
Feninnism is but the name of a
piebald political organization, divid?
ed into petty cliques, under various
partisan and, wo believe, unworthy
leaders. The outbreaks nt Manches?
ter and other places, said to be the
off-spring of Feninnism, have caused
considerable excitement, and have
resulted in the criminal exeoution of
some of the members of the organ
A ization. But no man who has read
the history of the unnatural connec?
tion between England and Iceland,
cnn fail to perceive that these dis?
orders, no matter under what name
they occur, result more from the
chronic condition of discontent pre?
vailing among certain olasses of the
Irish people. Tho situation of Eng?
lish society is most unnatural, and
the poor and unedocated cnn see that
as. clearly as the best economists.
The enduring contrast between the
extremes of wealth and poverty to bo
noted almost everywhere in England
and Ireland, as a matter of course, is
severely felt by the poverty-stricken.
When a man's labor. cannot bring
bread'enough for himself and those
depending upon him, his necessity
knows and cares nothing for law.
We agree, th?refore, with a cotem
porary, that the fault in these dis?
turbances rests with those who have
made and would keep English socie?
ty what it is. The blood shed in
these disturbances, is spilt by the
power that punishes the law-break?
ers, English law is the criminal.
The poor, goaded to despair by a sys?
tem they cannot improve, ore the
victims from first to lost. How much
more enlightened, merciful and just
would be the attitude of the Queen,
were she to demand of the British
Parliament a thorough reform of the
old abuses of the law, whioh create
and support in affluence, privileged
and non-working classes, taking
away npportunity for the ameliora?
tion of the situation of the poor.
Feninnism could do nothing in Eng?
land, were it not for the law of primo?
geniture and of entail, and for other
similar rules of a semi-civilized time.
Repression and punishment, no mat?
ter how severe, will not cure tho evil.
? discontented populace is a political
element, fnll of gravo danger to the
body politic. Tho history of the
year 1789, in France, should teach
British legislators something.
And so the history of Ireland, from
Queen Elizabeth's day Lo ours"should
be to English statesmen full of warn?
ing. Justice, majestic from its
mercy, venerable from its utility,
should always make a part of politics
and of law. But we will let the past
???st<wry of Ireland go, and turn with
relief,, even if we turn hopelessly, to
the future. Whatever may be its
political vicissitudes, Ireland will re?
main; and if it is to remain an inte?
gral portion of tho British empire,
.and tuc British policy of severity and
injustice itt io be persisted in, there
?an be little doubt but that tho abso?
lute extermination of the Irish race,
or its coiuploto removal from its
salural soil, will bo logically neces?
sary. Lot it be remembered as a
leading historical fact, that the Irish
people, enslaved, starved, and mas?
sacred ns they have been, aro to-day
unconquered and, in the truest sense
of the word, unconquerable. Lot us,
therefore, look forward with hope
that a reformation in tho laws and
thc social condition of tho people in
the "old country" will yet bring con?
tentment and peace to the Irish
< ? ? >
An early return to specio payments
by the Government and in financial
circles would certainly be a desirable
movement, as beneficial to the busi?
ness interests of tho country; but
there are so many plans suggested,
and so many financial doctors ai
work, that the project will reniait
unfulfilled for some time. Our de
spatches have already informed om
readors that a memorial from thc
New York Chamber of Commerco or
tho Bubject had already been sub
mittod to Congress. It may bo inte
resting, therefore, to know tho view:
of somo of tho leading members o
the Chamber on tho subject. Tba
body recently held a special meeting
to receivo tho report of the Commit
tee, which was appointed to consider
tho subject of an early return to
specie payments, the reasons there?
for, and the earliest date at which
resumption would be practicable.
The report is lengthy and interest?
ing, reciting the disadvantages at
home and abroad, resulting from the
present inflated state of the carron cy,
and the importance of returning to
specie payments as one of great
moral significance. The Committee
could see no reason why specie pay?
ments couler not be resumed in 1809,
provided that, in the meantime, the
temporary debt of the Government
shall have been funded. They op?
posed tho increase of legal tendera,
by substituting Treasury notes there?
for, and the increase of tho bank cir?
culation. After the discussion, tho
report was adopted, and the Com?
mittee instructed to prepare tho me?
morial now before Congress.
In the debate upon tho report,
several leading financiers of New
York took part. The principles em?
bodied in tho report were genorally
endorsed, though there was some
difference of opinion as to the proper
time for specie resumption-some
urging a later, others an earlier, pe?
riod. One of the speakers, Mr.
Chittcnden, argued that a quick re?
turn to speoie paymouts is essential
to the integrity of tho Government.
He then spoke in' favor of a repeal of
the cotton tax by Congress, and pre?
dicted that, if this was done, and
CongressTvonld immediately adjourn,
gold would bo at 120 before Christ?
mas. He further said, that the coun?
try was much better prepared for a
return to specie payments at the
?losc of the war than it is at the pre?
sent time, and that the longer the
measure is delayed, tho more difficult
it would become.
ACQUISITION OF CUBA.-By a letter
from the Havana special correspond?
ant of the New York Herald, it would
ippear that Mr. Seward is still in the
real estate business, and is now nego?
tiating for the purchase of thc island
af Cuba and endeavoring to prove
tho theory which ho promulgated
sight years ago-that Cuba was gra?
vitating towards the United States
was correct. What scorns most
strange, is tho announcement that
the Spanish Government looks favor?
ably on tho proposition to purchase
the island, and seems inclined to
enter into negotiations which would
deprive her of the most valuable
jewel of her possessions. The state?
ment may be true.
THAT IS SO!-The New York Tri?
bune, in reforring to tho message of
the President, says: "It will bo seen
that his Excellency still clings to the
theories which thus far has produced
?erious differences between himself
ind Congress." Yes-he still ad?
heres to the Constitution, and Con?
gress continues to disregard it, and
there Is where the differences arise,
rho President is unquestionably
right, and Congress unquestionably
wrong. Tho President demands that
tho Southern States shall be govern?
ed in accordance with the provisions
D? the Constitution, and Congress
insists that they shall bo governed in
accordance with its will, and "outside
of the Constitution."
VIRGINIA.-The Eichmond Whig
gives tho following account of the
political situation in Virginia:
"Before tho late elections the num?
ber of registered persons, white and
black, was 221,751. Of this aggregate
116,982 were whites and 10-1,772
blacks, giving a white majority of
12,210. Tho voto cast for tho Con?
vention was 11,835 whites and 92,507
blacks. Tho vote cast against tho
Convention was 01,219 whites and
638 blacks. Aggregate voto cast was
169,229-less by 52,525 than tho
number registered. Of tho 52,525
registered votes not cast, 10,898 were
whites and 11,627 blacks. Of tho
11,835 whites who voted for a Con?
vention, it is safe to assume that not
more than 5,000 aro radicals, who
will vote for a radical Constitution.
5,000 white radicals added to tho
101,000 registered blacks give 109,000
"It is believed that tho wholo radi?
cal strength has bpo*. registered. To
offset this, we have 111,982 white
conservatives registered, and from
15,000 to 20,000 to bo registorod,
which would give us a conservativo
vote against an offensive radical Con?
stitution, of say from 125,000 to
130,000. Is it not plain, then, that
it is in our power, if we all register
who are entitled to register, and all
vote who are ontitled to voto, to de?
feat any Constitution framed under
tho present reconstruction laws which
shall not be agreeable to us?"
INCK??DIA?UBM.-Tho steam saw mill
belonging to Messrs. J. P. Bridger Sc
Co., located on Black River, twenty
miles above Georgetown, was disco?
vered to be on Aro at 4 o'clock, on
the morning.of the 10th instant, and
before assistance could be obtained,
it was totaUy destroyed, The tracks
of two men were discovered, leading
towards the river, and the boat,
which had been fastened to the wharf
the night previous, was stolen, sup?
posed by the incendiaries. The
dwelling house at Brown's Ferry, one
and a half miles from the mill, was
also totally destroyed by fire the
same night.-Charleston Courier.

1 ? SUITABLE GIFT BOOK.-We have
been presented by the publishers,
through Mr. J. J. McCarter, with a
I poetical ' work, which "viii prove a
most attractive and suitable present
from a lover to his sweetheart, a
brother to a sister, or even a husband
to a wife-as a gent?o reminder of
tho "days when he would a wooing
go." The book is handsomely bound,
contains copious indexes of tho first
lines, and also a sort of dictionary,
gotten up in a now and unique style.
It is entitled "Tho Lover's Diction?
ary a Poetical Treasury of Lovers'
Thoughts, Fancies, Addresses and
Dilemmas." Let it bo understood,
however, tb the poetry is far from
being what might be termed "love?
sick stuff," by those who have "pass?
ed thc Rubicon," but the most of it
j will r.veu prove attractive to a crusty
old bachelor. Harper & Brothers,

A PROMISED LITERARY TREAT.
Wo learn that early next week, at tho
request of a number of ladies, Dr.
Henry M. Clarkson will read a poem
entitled "Evelyn," for tho benefit of
the impoverished widows and orphans
of deceased Confederate soldiers. A
large number of ladies in Charleston
have undertaken the charitable task
of buildiug a homo for these unfor?
tunate dependents, and meanwhile,
have secured premises, which aro be?
ing occupied daily. Tributary asso?
ciations are in process of organiza?
tion thv ighout the Slate, the object
not being local in its character, but
on the contrary being intended to
benefit individuals in every portion
of the State. Dr. Clarkson is a South
Carolinian by birth, and has a small
reputation ns ono of our sweetest
poets. Evelyn is a romance of the
war, and embraces some of the most
startling episodes, vivid battle scenes,
and incidents ol' pomonal adventure.
It has boen read by the author seve?
ral times in Virginia to large houses
for charitable purposes, and.we hope
a generous attendance will be present
on the approaching occasion. Mr.*
Jauney has generously contributed
the hall, aud Captain Stanley the gas
lights, so that the entire sum realized
will go towards the relief of theso
dependants upon tho public charity.
J Tho prico of admission will probably
be fifty cents, and tickets may bc
secured at tho usual places on Main
