COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Morning:, Jone 1,1870.
The reoent Fenian raid on Ganada oan
find few apologists, outside the "Bro?
therhood," in any portion of the world.
It purport? to be conducted in the inte?
rests of free government, and to punish
England for her political offences; yet
Canada is as free as any country on tho
faoe of the globe, and she is, moreover,
by no means responsible for the rulo of
England over the sister-isle. How n
lawless attack upon Cauada is expected
to benefit Ireland, or avenge her inju?
ries, is therefore wholly beyond our
comprehension. Claiming to be Irish
Americans, and, ns such, owing no alle?
giance except to the United States, they
yet presume to commit acts of war on a
country with which the United States aro
at peace, and, as Gen. O'Neill paradoxi?
cally proclaims, from their "own conn
try," "enter that of the enemy!" If
they are American citizens, they have no
business to engage in a foreigu war in
which our Government is not a party.
If they are still Irishmen, in sentiment
and allegiance, and "Ireland for the
Irish" is their watoh-word and refrain,
their Ireland should be thc scene of their
patriotic endeavors and England their
only foe. We make these observations
more in sorrow than in anger, for we are
fully convinced that the ill-advised con?
flict, now pending, has been precipitated
by rash and reckless men, guided by n
petty ambition rather than a broad,
catholic and well considered policy.
That it will come to a lame and impo?
tent conclusion, no reasonable mau can
doubt. "The vigor of the war will most
lamentably fail to come up to tho high
sounding spirit of the manifesto."
The New York World Bays:
GRANT'S GRAMM AK.-An ignoramus,
who prudently withholds his name, un?
dertakes to justify General Grant's bad
grammar in the following communica?
"A oollectivo noun, conveying tho
idea of unity, the verb must agrco with
it in the singular number."
Bead Grant's proclamation over again.
Our correspondent misapplies a rule
which be does not understand. He does
not know the meaning of a collective
noun. Such nouns are always singular
in form, with a plural signification; as,
for example, assembly, flock, army, etc.
The phrase, United States, is a regular
plural; and if Gen. Grant were conver?
sant with the Constitution and laws, his
mind would have becomo familiarized
with the usage whioh always joins this
phrase with a plural verb, or represents
it by a plural pronoun. Tho Constitu?
tion, for instance, says: "Treason against
the United States shall consist only in
levying war against them, or in adhering
to their enemies. " Chancellor Kent, who
understood both law and grammar, says,
in his Commentaries: "The United States
are entitled," etc. Although Grant com?
mitted this blunder, we do not suppose
that eveu he would be foolish enough to
It is Grant's politics, and not his gram?
mar, that we find at fault. The question
hinges upon governmental principles. If
the United States is a nation, Grant's
grammar is right. If tho United States
are separate Stater, forming a republic
of co-equal communities, then, his gram?
mar is wrong.
A SOUTHERN SEIUES-HOMS ENTER
rrtisE.-DeBow's Review for March-April
contains the following just and spirited
reference to a Columbia enterprise.
Speaking of Reynolds' Primary School
Books-Messrs. Duffie & Chapman, pub?
lishers-the Review says:
The pictorial primer and readers arc
very well adapted to tho purpose of im?
partial instruction. The Fourth Header
will supply a want of which all Southern
men are familiarly conscious. Tho his?
tory of the late war, its causes, and con?
sequences, must bo taught tho youth of
the republic. While we wish no repre?
sentation made nt tho expense of the
North, or of truth, we will bo satisfied
with nothing short of historical justice.
Let our children be taught that thu
South resisted tho power of tho North,
because it bolieved it was a duty aud n
right to do so. That in a war thus com?
menced upon honest conviction, it
fought, fairly, manly, nobly. That as a
conquered country, it kept its covenants.
That tho virtue and intelligence of its
people compare with tho highest stan?
dard of civilization. While thu Fourth
Bender of Professor Reynolds does not
teach history in detail, tho examples
given of literary and political genius are
such as to iu8piro our youth with tho
conviction that those from whom they
arc descended or allied, aro worthy of
honor and imitation. We commend this
series of school books to families and to
schools. Wo trust to seo history so com?
piled as that without depriving any other
section of tho honor to which it may bo
entitled, it will extend to the oppressed
and impoverished sons of the South the
commendation to which their courage
and character entitles them.
Tho General Conference of the M. E.
Churob, after transacting a largo amount
of business of no general importance,
adjourned sine die on Thursday. Just
before adjourning, Bishop Androws deli?
vered bia farewell address, ns, owing to
his extreme ago, it was not probable that
ho would over meet with thom again.
To tho Citizen? of IUchlnntl.
The citizens of Richland, white and
colored, irrespective of party, but who
aro in favor of economy, retrenchment
and reform, low taxes and a wise, pa?
triotic and honest administration of our
State Government, are requested to
meet in their respeotive townships on
Saturday, 4th Juno next, and select four
delegates each to attend a County Con?
vention, to be held at Columbia on the
first Monday in June next, for the pur?
pose of appointing delegates to the
State Convention, which will assemble
on the 15th of that month.
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN A CRITICAL
POSITION.-The New York Times, a Re?
publican journal, argues that the time
has come for the party to take a now de?
parture "The negro," it soys, "has
ceased to bo a central figure." It says:
Both Houses aro arrayed in two fac?
tions, tho one seeking to inaugurate new
and harsh measures toward the South,
and the other to secure pacification, and
to construct some wise and prudent po?
licy independently of the old issues of
the war. There is no question how the
gi eat body of tho people stand os be?
tween tho two. They are tired of the
struggle which has so long existed with re?
gard to the negro, and desire to march
with tho times. The world does not
standstill, although tho Republican par?
ty may. We must deal with the live
questions of the hour.
How this can be accomplished, is tho
problem which is pressing for n, solution.
Although wo do not believe that tho poli?
cy of a great party can bo suddenly
formed, we are sure that it is the part of
wisdom promptly to grapple with all dif?
ficulties of politics aud government. It
is idle to attempt to avade or postpono
action. It is not to bo denied that the
Republican party lacks a broad national
policy with regard to finance, taxation,
and imposts. For six months, Republi?
can leaders in Congress have been at log?
gerheads on those subjects, and the
country is apparently no nearer a solu?
tion of any one of them than it was at
the beginning of tho session. Yet tho
approaching campaign will probably
largely depend ou these issues, and the
whole nation is anxiously wnitiug to have
them cleared out of the way ia order
that it may comprehend its true position
and prospects. It is to be feared that
the people will refuse to wait much longer.
Postmasters and other persons through?
out tho country aro in daily receipt of
speciously worded circulars from oroide
watch dealers in Now York city, to in?
vest, or to act as agents, for some so
called celebrated oroido watch. Our
readers will save themselves, and per?
haps their friends, from humbuggery in
this matter, by remembering that oroide
is simply a high-sounding word for
brass, and oroide is brass-only brass
and nothing more. The brass is tinc?
tured with some preparation to prevent
its coloring, and is called oroido, but
tho value per pound is tho same as the
original brass. In n suit brought
against u New York firm, by tho National
Watch Company, for advertising Elgin
watches C. O. D., numerous express
ngents throughout tho country mado
ullidavit us to the worthless character of
most of tho watches sold by C. O. D. ad
vertisemets, and of thc numerous class
of oroido watches sent out by express
from New York. Thc agent at Madisou,
Wisconsin, testified that "of all of that
class of watches that had passed through
his hands, ho had never known ono to
I prove worth u five dollar noto, and that
tho purchasers wero invariably dissatis?
fied, aud considered themselves swin?
dled." Other agents testified from
practical observation to the samo effect.
In view of tho light thus thrown upon
tho oroido watch business, wo trust none
of our readers may be taken in by those
circulars. If a person is iuclined to bny
j a watch, let him go to a dealer whom he
knows, and can hold responsible, and
bay a watch of known character and of
value, suuh as those made at Elgin, III.,
Roxbury and Waltham, Mass., and by
tho best Swiss makers; they aro all good,
and will all lust livo timos as long as tho
oroido watches. It certainly is a better
investment to pay twico as much, and
get a valuable article, thau it is to pay
out money and have a piece of brut* to
show for it.
Quebec was visited early on Tuesday
morning, as was briefly announced by
telegraph, with ono of tho most disas?
trous conflagrations ever known in tho
history of that city. Tho area over which
tho fire swept, was covered with wooden
dwellings and tho flames spread with
such fierceness as to drive hundreds of
people from their houses to places of
safety. Tho sight, in some cuses, was
most appalling. Women, with barely a
stitch of clothing, were met at every
turu, most of them carrying their chil?
dren, and rushing about in u wild and
insane-li ko manner. As tho wind rose,
the flames gathered strength and inten?
sity, leaping with fearful violeuco from
ono building to another, sweeping before
them everything of a combustible nature.
Tho wind, blowing strong from tho East,
directed tho tendency of tho flames to?
wards King and Queen streets, through
which they swept with terrible force, en?
veloping at one time over fifty buildings.
These streets, in some places, exhibited
a most awful appearance, a perfect whirl?
wind of fire being observable in every
direction. Fortunately, at 4 o'clock a.
m., rain begun to full, whioh soon check?
ed the flames, and this, with tho almost
superhuman efforts of tho firemen,
stayed the further progress of the fire
fiend. It is estimated, however, that
500 buildings wero destroyed. Two
ships wore also burned to tho water's
edge, and several persons wore injured
by falling walls.
"I love theo still," as the quiet hus
band said to tho chattering wife.

MOBHON MARRYING.-A correspondent
writing from Salt Lake City, gives the
following: "I witnessed a eight this
morning which I will desoribe, but the
cironmBtance is probably not a fair one
from which to draw general reference?.
An old farmer drove into the city with a
load of country prodaoe for sale. Seated
with him were two women, ono on either
Bide. Ono of these damsels was old and
wrinkled, tho other mitch younger, but
decidedly the worso for wear-thia fe?
male had an infant in her arms. Upon
the back seat were two young women
and a half-grown boy. Both the women
carried babies. I, of course, supposed
that this party was father, mother and
children. Judge of my snrpriso when I
learned that the old man was the hus?
band of all four woman, and tho old
woman was tho motker of the yonng
ones. Think of itl One man married
toa mother and three daughters 1 At
first I could not believe that human na?
ture could become so degraded; but on
inquiry of a well known Mormon I
learned that the facts wero precisely ns
first stated to mo."
Dr. Phillips, who lately held tho po?
sition of American Consul at Santiago
de Cuba, but who was driven from tho
island by the Spaniards, arrived in New
York a few days ago. His statements as
to the state of affairs among tho Cubans
fully confirm those of General Jordan,
and are caloulated to give decided en?
couragement to tho friends of the Cuban
cause. Ho has long been a resident of
Cuba, and hus enjoyed unusual means of
obtaining uccurato information ns to tho
' condition ol' affairs on thc island, nud
his reports are, therefore, eutitled to
more tliau usual credence. He soys that
the Cubans wero nover in better condi?
tion for fighting than now. They aro
moro thoroughly organized and drilled
than tliey over were before, and are tak?
ing tho offensive in ronny quarters. He
suys further that tho rainy season has
put an end to.offensive operations on the
part of tho Spaniards, thousands of
whom aro in the hospitals, while the ac?
climated Cubans are free from disease.
Con. JOHNSTON'S LETTER.-In another
colamn will be found a letter from Col.
Johnston, President of tho Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta Railroad, in
which he seeks to correct a statement in
tho local columns of this paper in rela?
tion to the Wilmington, Columbia and
Augusta Railroad. Our information was
received from what wo considered good
authority, and tho maia point made by
Colonel Johnston is, that no negotia?
tions, oither verbal or otherwise, have
been had between himself and Mr.
Bridgcrs since the latter has been Presi?
dent of tho W.f C. ic A. R. R. Whether
such negotiations were made prior to Mr.
Britlgers becoming Presidont of the new
road, Col. J. does not say. We are glad
to know that Col. J. is willing to nego?
tiate on fair terms with the W., C. & A.

be thrown in the way of a speedy com?

On Thursday, a party of Winnebago
Indians, located on a reservation in Ne?

whose names at a connected with it, are
possessed of unquestionable ability to
execute any whrk they undertake, and
besides, we presume, they would find

THE XIX CENTURY.-Tho Juno num?
ber has been received, and we have read
its pages with increasing delight. We
would bo glad to give an extended notice
of our own opinion of this excellent
magazine, but prefer publishing the fol?
lowing highly complimentary notice of
it, written by one of the best critics in
the land-wc mean M. M. (Brick) Pome?
roy, Esq. :
..Ono of tho very best magazines ever
published in tho United States is the
XIX Century, published at Charleston,
S. C. Thero is a life, vigor, boldness,
earnestness, elasticity, comprehensibility
and variety in its pages and articles very
refreshing. From first to last, the work
is perfect. Its pages contain some of
the finest literary productions of the
age, while its editorials evince a know?
ledge of men, manners and customs,
uations and tho laws of nations, greatly
in contrast with many magazine articles
purporting to come from the 'eading
statesmen and brilliant minds of the day.
Thero is to ho found in the XIX Century
tho usual variety of light and heavy
reading, sketches, descriptive articles,
reminiscences, arguments, incidents and
editorial mentionings-all evincing tho
highest order of talent, aud most excel?
lent taste in make-up and presentation.
"The price of this worthy and most
excellent magazine is three dollars and a
half per year-single numbers thirty-five
cents. We advise our readers, especially
tho ladies, to subscribe for it, if they can
afford so to do. If they would see for
themselves the beauties and excellences
of tho work, let them enclose thirty-five
cents to the publishers nt Charleston, S.
C., and they will receive a sample copy."
i Wo will furnish tho XIX Century, in
connection with the WEEKLY GLEANER,
j one year, for the sum of ?5.50.

day school will bo hold to-day, (weather

Mr. W. H. Dowdy has famished us
with an eightcen-inch stalk of cotton,
which has one form upon it. This, he
says, is a fair specimen of a field of 200
acres. Tip-top, wo should say.

tary; and Mr. J. S. Clifton, of Chester,
"Alwaysas Now," is tho titlo of afino
poem in the Juno number of Merry's
Museum; if this favorite youth's maga?
zine remained always as now, it onght
to satisfy tho most fastidious; but tho
publisher, not content, announces new
attractions for tho volumo beginning
with next number. Send for a specimen

Fuller, publisher, Boston.
