When .the correspondence between
Messrs. Kershaw and Bansier appeared,
we took occasion to say that practically
the assurances given by Mr. Bansier, of
a disposition on his part to have a fair
election, amounted to nothing. ' We
learn now that there is a hitch in the
arrangements proposed, and that Gov.
Scott will give no satisfactory evidence
of any intention on bis part to make the
proposed arrangement efficacious. We
presume that the Elective believes in
?.-tho good old rulo, the simple plan.
That they snail tako who havo tho powor,
And they shall keup who can."
We would be pleased to learn from tho
Secretary of the Executive Committee
of the Union Beform Party the progress
of his efforts to provide for a committee
of both parties to attend at each voting
precinct. And we trust that tho Execu?
tive Committeo will see to it that auti
radicalists shall not bo deprived of the
fruits of any snccess that mny be fairly
?won by them. We cannot afford this.
Our Slate Folley.
"South Caroling whether we like it or
not, is now inhabited by two races of
people. According to the laws of the
land, tho colored people forming ono of
these raoes are endowed with full citi?
zenship. They vote, sit ou juries, form
military aompanies, and hold office
The question now is, what is tho proper
policy to bo pursued in South Carolina
with the view of, promoting tho public
weal and making the most of the cir?
cumstances that surround us? We are
fully satisfied as to the proper policy.
Our policy should not be based upon re?
sentment. It should be wise, liberal aud
enlightened. Whatever may bo the fu?
ture of tho colored race iu these South?
ern communities, our duties are in the
present, as our relations to them now
munt bo considered. We deem it the
obvious duty of tho South to promote,
in every legitimate way, tho improve?
ment of the colored man. If he is a
citizen, it is obviously our duty to see to
it that hu be a sobor, discreet and indus?
trious member of tho body politic If
ho is a juryman, a soldier aud a voter,
it is certaiuly to our interest that he bc
educated and alive to the public inte?
rests. Hence it is, that we would advise
and advocate, as for the colored people
as well as the whites, a policy of encou?
ragement nud help and genuine advance
ment. And wheu the prosent radico
rule shall have terminated-as it must
Boon terminate-and tho Southern peo
pie, redeemed and disenthralled, sha!
have been remitted to cheerful nnc
wholesome ?ol?-govcrumont, we, as on<
of the triumphant party of the not dis
tant future, shall advocate for the coloree
race a policy that is fair, just and liberal
a policy that fully recognizes their claims
Bearing in mind how the great body o
these people have been misled by desigu
ing adventurers and self-seeking leaders
white and black, wo shall bo
"To their faults a little blind,
'To their virtues a little kind
And put a padlock ou our minds
As tu the past."
Wo shall be disposed to welcome then
to all the prosperity that God, in Hi
Providence, has designed for the raco
and to give them a full showing ant
equal and exact just ico. Knowing tha
the white race of tho South aro perfect);
able to take care of themselves, we d<
not ask iu their behalf any partial legis
lation, but are quite ready to submit tin
question of influence and power to tlx
operation of natural, legitimate un?
peaceful laws. So much for our polio;
as respects tho colored race.
Another feature of State policy is Itu
encouragement of immigrants und set
tiers from the North und Europe, as
means of developing our resources
This wo invest with great importance
Wo need this strength. We need thi
means of development. It is now we
established that wealth is au essen Iii:

answer has boon given, "Men, high

"Men, high-minded men," do form ou
of tho constituent elements of th
STATU. But thero is another, and this i
WEALTH. In seeking, therefore, to ur.
raise the broken columns of former pro?
perity in South Carolina, let it never b
forgotten that a STATE, to stand au
prevail, must surround itself with th
solid muuimcnts, not only of "men,7iial

The Flood In Virginia.
We make the following extracts from
the Biohmond Dispatch:,
Since our last i so no, tho great flood
has been the prevailing topic of thought
and conversation. Indeed, it bsa been
brought to our tory doors, and left ?neb
an impression upon our. city that'few-,
who have witnessed the vast expanse of
water, and known anything of the ruin
it hoB wrongbt, will soon forgot the fresh
of 1870-the greatest of a century. For?
tunately, not a. single lifts.bas been lost,
but not loss than 100 families have been
expelled from their homes by the angry
waters; and not.only, haye our business
interests suffered materially from the
suspension of trade cons?quent upon the
excitement, -but the actual pecuniary
loss sustained by this community can?
not be estimated at lees than $1,000,000.
We speak only of Biohmond; of what
the country above us has suffered we fear
to hazard an opinion. Time will bring
the figuren ont with frightful boldness.
THE IUSINO OF TUE WATERS.
Ccmmcncing to roll down upon us at
about noon on Friday, at mid-night the
waters had attained a height unusual
even for a freshet. All. through the
night it continued to rieo in Hie harbor,
at the rafe of not- less thau n foot and a
half un hour. When morning came,
bright and cloudless though it was, thc
river was swollen to dimensions calcu?
lated to fill with dismay tho hearts of nil
who dwelt or did business in low lands.
Tho islands'in tho river wero over-run
with a rapid current; the vessels in the
dock bad risen to tho level of tho
wharves; the bridges over the Jumes
were trembling beneath tho blows of the
drift-wood and the beating of the waves
against tboir tough timbers; and the re?
port was that the water was slowly find?
ing its way into the ?treots in the lower
part of the city. There was a little lake
on Gary street, and the people ol
Bocketts found tho river literally at
tboir doors. Still there were those whe
said the fresh bad reached its highest,
and that Bichmond was not in danger.
Nobody fully realized the situation.
THE WATER IN THE STREETS.
Fortunately, however, some bad heed?
ed the kindly-meant warnings receivet
from the Bufferers on tho upper James
and made preparations for the flood. A
good deal of tho tobacco had been gottei
ont of Mayo's warehouse, during .tin
night, but there were still hundreds o
hogsheads there, and some consignee:
did not seem ut all alarmed. A tux
lumber merchants bod taken precau
tions, one or two foundrymeu hac
cleared their floors, and many people ii
Bocketts were ready to move. As re
ports were received of "still rising," o
"no fall," many moro began to get rend;
for an overflow; and at about 10 o'clocl
the whole of the lower part of the cit;
was in a state of excitement. The wnte
bod now risen nearly up to tho eaves o
the steamboat sheds at Bocketts, am
Gillie's Greek bad overflown its banks
Up town also, matters looked serious
From Cary street tho water passed over t
Main, filling Seventeenth street as it cam
along, and almost without n moment'
warning the butchers and hucksters o
the Old Market found their feet gettin
wet. When the reporters went up t
the Police Court in tho upper part c
market-house at half-past 9 o'clock the
walked there dry shod. When they cam
out at half-past 10 the water was almot
knee-deep on the pavement.
Meantime tho water was still rising o
Main street, and ladies traveling froi
one hill to the other wero under tho nc
cessity of standing up on the beuchest
keep from getting wet. At 12 o'cloc
the cars could no longer go across, th
water being deep enough to swim
horse. The cars on cither side of th
stream, however, continued to nm to th
water's edge during the whole day wit
punctuality and regularity that reflecte
credit upon tbo management of the Si
AT THE DRIDGCS.
Mayo's bridgo was tho chief point (
interest, however, during the fore poi
of Saturday, for it was expected that
would bo soon washed away. A larg
crowd waited on the river bank for hour,
in the scorching sun, waiting to soo tl;
catastrophe, and, if tho truth must L
told, manifested no little impatience an
disappointment (such is human naturi
that it so long resisted tho attack of tl:
element. At one time it seemed icu po.
sible that it could stand un hour. Tl:
river was filled with drifting still
There carno ulong logs, mill timber, ha;
stacks, trunks, barrels, boxes, pieces ?
fencing, chairs, tables, benches, gate
wagon-bodies, hnrnesp, pumpkins au
watermelons, agricultural implement
boughs of trees, and two or I breo who
roofs of houses. Luckily most of tl
debris following tho track of tho swifte
part of tho current was carried right ui
der tho bridge, but other pieces we
driven against tho abutments with teri
bio force, and so, nt tho sumo time, tl
water rapidly arose, it was evident aboi
noon that tho bridge must go. At qua
tor-past 12 the part over Manches!
Creek parted company with the rest, ai
it was followed in a fuw minutes by t
that part of tho bridge, two or Min
hundred yards in length, on tho Soul
sido of tho island. Tho prccautioi
taken by tho polico authorities wero i
off oct i vo that, notwithstanding Ibo gre
anxiety of tho crowd to expose Ihn
selves to tho duuger of being waslli
away, nobody was ou any part of tl
bridge when it floated off.
Mayo's gone, all eyes were turned t
ward tho Danville bridgo, and it hard
seemed possible that it could long wit
stand the rising current. But its powc
of endurance, aided by measures carril
into effect by Superintendent Dodau)el
nod bis assistants, proved fully equal
tho octfasion. About five foot of weat
erboarding was knocked off the low
part of tho bridgo to allow tho water
pass through, and a still moro officio
means of keeping it in placo wns ti
loading of a number of coal cars wi
pig-iron and running them on tho bridg
The tide crept up to the very floor ot
tho massive structure, and the drift-wood
was fiercely hurled against it without in?
termission for hours; but the bridge, re?
mained unshaken to the very last.
The Petersburg Railroad bridge was
never thought to be in danger, and it did
not disappoint the expectations, of its
friends. Trains ran over it when the
water waa doing its worst, and.the pas?
sengers, knowing its condition, felt as
safe as on dry laud.
nOCKETTS AMD THEREABOUTS.
. Rocketts Buffered perhaps more than
any other parc of tho city. The river,
rising above the wharves, Bpread itself
over whole blocks, and an idea of the
height of tho fresh may be obtained from
tho statement that only the peaks of tho
roofs of the steamboat sheds were visi?
ble. Gillie's Creek wns swollen to the
dimensions of a good-sized river, and
Bloody Run was for awhile a foaming
torrent. The James River ?Steamboat
Company's Bheds were swept away quito
early in the notion, nnd nfter bumping
against several houses and knocking
down a street lamp, departed in pieces.
Tho people in dwelling-houses, vainly
hoping that the flood would soon sub?
side, - wore driveu from floor to floor,
until finally they and their furniture had
to be taken out oi tho garret windows
and carried away iu boats to the
houses of hospitablo neighbors.
As the river rose tho back-water gra?
dually mndo its way up Shocko Creek
until it obtained a considerable height
above the key-stones of tho different
arches spanning tho stream nt the street
crossings. Tho bridge in rear of the
Lancaaterinn school-house was carried
away, and tho houses on both sides of thc
creek as far up ns the foot of President
Hill, consisting mostly of small framed
dwellings, wero inundated. Somo of
their inhabitants moved to the upper
stories, but the greater number, with all
their worldly goods, abandoned their
homes and struck for a higher position.
THE GAH WORKS.
Tho river never before rose high enough
to inj uro the gas works very seriously,
and the Superintendent had no reason tc
apprehend snch a state of affairs this
time. When the day hands came to worh
in the morning, tho water hud not nindi
headway enough to ennse any nimm.
But it soon began to rise withiu the en
closure with such rapidity as to make ii
necessary for work to bo abandoned. Ai
5 o'clock p. m., tho fires were all est in
guished by the flood, and tho water wa:
five feet deep in the rwtort-house. Th<
engines were entirely submerged.
Tho damage sustained by tho works i
not kuown. It is feared that the retort
may havo been injured by tho contrae
tion consequent upon sudden cooling
and that the coal has bceu rendered unfi
for early uso.
THE WATER WORKS.
We visited the pump-house about 4 p
m. on Saturday, and found the Super
intondent on tho spot with his force
ready for any emergency that migb
arise. AU of the tools, ?to., had bee
removed from tho tool-houso to hight
ground out of danger, and the hour;
itself, to- guard against possible washin
away, securely fastened with large rope
to the surrounding trees. A Bma
woodoo building which had been Intel
erected at the West end of the mai
building, and was not completed, ha
beon carried off by tho flood. Wor
was stopped on Friday, and, ns a pn
cautionary measure, all of the food-gat<
were tightly closed. Tho water entere

elevation of four aud a half feet abo\

was ever known at that point bcfori

was discovered that it was nearly upon
level with tho tow-path, and at poin
near Gallego Mills, tho Tredegar Work
and the pump-house, was gradually stet
iug over the banks.
A DESPERATE ItE?.I EDY.
At this juueturo it was determined

All the floor of tho York River freight
shed was ruised by water. The track
was covered to a depth of a foot or more
in the tunnel near Pine and Main streets,
and a couple of engines and some cars
were not gotten ont of town in time to
avoid being flooded.
On Saturday evening our streets in tho
vicinity of tho flood and Libby's aud
Gamble's Hill were thronged with sight
beers. It was a sight worth seeing, aud
few who saw it will ever forget it.
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon tho

Tho water was at its heigbtat 10 o'clock
ou Saturday night. There was no per?
ceptible riso after that hour, aud at
about mid-niglit there were many evi?
dences of a fall. It continued to decline
during the night, and at 10 o'clock in the
morning had f?llen four feet. At noon,
the water was about as high as it was at
the samo time on Saturday. Thereafter,
the fall was very rapid, and last night
vehicles could pass without any difficul?

preparations were made at all tho manu?
facturing establishments to remove all
'that was perishable or movablo. Crowds
j gathered around Mayo's and the Dan?
ville bridges and lined tho banks, watch?
ing the tell destroyer. About 10|.i a.
m., a portion of thu Southern division
! of Mayo's bridge was carried away, and
I about an hour after, gallantly breasting
j tho storm, the remainder was forced to
succumb. Everything on Sharp's and
Talbott's islands were swept away, and
Belcher's narrowly escaped.
TIOUSES UNDER WATER.
Later in the day tho wator continued
rising rapidly, aud soon that part of the
town known as tho "Lower Bowery"
all that portion North of Third and East
of Hull streets-was deluged, in some
places up to the second stories of the
dwelling. The inhabitants, as well as
those in Marx's Field, around the neigh?
borhood of the Cool Spring, wero mak?
ing precipitato flight, after moving what
furniture they could to tho upper por?
tions of tho houses. Tho cottuges were
secured as well as possible, and left to
tho mercy of tho devouring element.
A wagon enguged in moving Mr. B.

horses only saved by cutting them loose
and leaving tho wagon and goods. A

stoppage will not bo of long duration.
Work had just been suspended in tho
factories to allow necessary repairs to

seeming to act with the utmost caution.
