COLUMBIA, S. C.
Wednesday Morning, November 6, '78. S?ir-Re?pcct. A brave man straggling with adversity is a sight worthy of the gods. And a brave people, whose fate it has been to suooumb to superior power, and to drink to the dregs the bitterness of humilia? tion, if they bat preserve their integrity, and keep the whiteness of their souls, will shine on the pages of history and forever attract equally the suffrages of admiration and sympathy. But they mast never forfeit their self-respect, must be true to themselves always, true to honor and duty, and be no less boldly than discreetly regardful of their proper character. If beaten on one point, they must show their vigor and manhood on another. In their day of power and pride, the people of South Carolina staked every? thing upou priuoiple. They were tho advanoed guard of the State's rights column in its grand strugglo with con? solidation. While the coutest was on the floor of the Senate, whero tho mighty ohampidns of debate met and measured thoir swords of argiimeut, the victory usually ronioiued with the ndvocates of her views. Those whom she furnished for the arena, if uot always successful, were always able aud always respectable. No man, not even tho matchless Web? ster, could cope with Johu C. Calhoun, when fully roused upon his favorite theme of the rights of the States. These doctrines, so unanswerably maintained, and go gloriously enshrined in tho volumes of his works, wore put in issuo on the field of battle, and went down in the strife. But. "Truth ornsh'd to earth will rise again, The eternal years of Qod are hors." History has her revenges, and the oanso whioh to-day lies bleeding will, in the revolutions of the wheel of time acquire a power for its maintenance corresponding to its intrinsic virtue and worth. We have bnt to yield to the storm whioh we oanuot resist, and, liko a flexible plant, only bend to rise again erect and stately aB ever. Let ns not lose faith in ourselves, nor in God. Lot ns not abandon our country, nor turn our back* upon its past, nor dospair of its future fortunes. A Radical paper published at Biog hampton, N. H., applauds the arbitrary arrest and imprisonment of citizens of New York oity by Davenport. This shows how Grantism has taken hold of that party. They are reudy to applaud the invasion of a man's private residence, tho violation of constitutional rights, and the depriving of citizens of their liberty as a means of party saccess. Davenport is unlawfully arresting honest citizcus, meu who aro in every respeot, .socially and morally, his superiors, and throwing them into prison, and a Grant organ ap? plauds the act. Does not this show that Grantinui means death to our liberties? Release of Captain Topper Upon Ten Thousand Dollars Bail.?A mo? tion was made, Monday morning, before Judge Graham, in the Court of General Sessions, at Charleston, for the release on bail of Captain George Tapper, who is charged with killing Captaiu John D, Caldwell, in this city, on the 21st of last September. Captain Tupper was taken to Charleston by Sheriff Frazee, and ap? peared in court Monday, in company with his counsel. General M. C. Butler and Colonel William Wallace, and, upon the motion made by General Butler, the following order was issued by Judge Graham: "It appearing in this case that the petitioner aud prisoner is detained iu custody, under a warrant of commitment directed to the Sheriff ot tho County of Richland, of the Stute of South Caro? lina, und so detained for a bailable of? fence, upou a showiug by affiavits, it is ordered: That the said prisoner be let to bail, and that he enter into reoognizance himself in the sum of teu thousand dol? lars, with four sureties, each iu the sum of twenty-five hundred dollars, to the State of South Carolina, conditioned to appear in the Court of Sessions, to ho holden at Columbia, in and for tho County of Richlund, on the first Mon? day in February next, to answer to a bill of indictment thoro preferred aud found against bim, tho said prisoner, for homicido, and thut he will uot depart the court without leave. "It is also ordered, that the said re oognizanco bo entered into before tbe Clerk of tho Court of General Hossiona for the County of Charleston, and for? warded to tho Clerk of tho said Court ot Goneral Sessions for tho said County of Kiohlnud." Captain Tupper was released immedi? ately after tho issuiug of tho foregoing order, upon his own bond, signed by tho following persons: Mrs. E. Y. Tap? per, S. Y. Tupper, Wm. L-udlor and C. W. Montgomery. Tho Riohmond Whig says that it is now known that Wm. it. Toller, the de? faulting toller of tho State Bank of Vir? ginia, betrayed tho soniidouoo reposed in him, "to assist others, uud not to eu- j rich himself." The State Fair.?Yeaterdoy was "opening day," bnt there was not a very extensive turn-out of visitors. About 11 o'clock, Pro'. Ruohar'a 18th Regiment Bund arrived, and in a abort time was in fall blast?discoursing beau? tiful airs from different operas. "II Bacciu" bad many admirers. Tucre is an elogant and extensive display of arti? cles?nearly every inch of available room being taken up in the main build? ing. Lunch and dinner are furnished by the ladies connected witb tbe Monu? mental Association. Tbere are hundreds of articles which are well worth looking at. Among those which particularly at? tracted attention were a representation of Mephistophiles in soap-stone, and some very daintily cut cameo beads? portraits?the work of Mies Addie Sims, of JonoBvillo, Union. The work is beautifully done, and is tho more won? derful from the fact that tbe lady lias never received any instructions in sculp? ture. The only implements used in cutting the cameos were a pen knife aud needle. "Mephistophiles" is to be milled for the benefit of the Indies' Monumental Association. A "family hair-tree"?the work of Mrs. M. L. Hims, of Fair field. It has twelvo sepa? rate brunches, representing twelve mem? bers of the family?each branch with small limbs extending from it. Every member of the family is represented? from the white-haired parents to tho light-haired infant. Baskets of fruit, bouquet of flowers and two marblcized harps, the work of Mrs. T. M. Pollock, wore universally udmired. A basket of fruit by Mrs. S. S. MoCully, and a splendid lot of Palmetto work by a deaf and dumb man, Joseph Jenkins, of John's Island, including mats, baskets, etc., attracted attention. Miss Chicora Kirk, of this city, (whoso ngo is twelve years,) has exhibited considerable skill iu tho preparation of curls, frisottes, etc. A wax water lily, tho work of Miss Shellie MoMaster, of Columbia, is very pretty. Messrs. Wearu & Hix, us usual, exhibited specimens of their pictures, which were generally admired. A wreath of wax flowers, by Mi6s Mollie Lovell, (aged twelve,) of Oranguburg, was u capital imitation of nature. A case of wax fruit, jellies, etc., made ono feel in? clined to handlo or taste, iu order to feel positive as to its geuuiuencss. An afghun and bed-quilt, executed in crochet, by Miss Barclay, of Charleston, had many admsrers; while the speciuieus of shark's teeth exhibited by her father, had a tendency to increase tho disiiku uT landsmen as well as seamen to those dangerous wolves of the sea. Miss Alice McKonzie's portrait of her father?exe? cuted without over haviug a "sitting"? is generally recognized and admired. Miss Eugenia Orchard exhibits several specimens of her skill iu manipulating tho paint brush; tho portrait of her iuiher uuu Lue "Gipaoy Mother" wero warmly commended. "St. Goneviove," by one of tho uuus at Valle Crucis, was also greatly admired. Misses Sallic Witherspoon, Mary Brady, M. L. Pick? ling, Emma Ilope aud Ella Ilcudrix also exhibited creditable specimens of their skill in painting. Mrs. W. K. Bach man's "Soa View" is very pretty. Mrs. W. T. Bltrge's oil painting?cotton plant?is exceedingly beautiful. Mr.*. H. C. Ingcrsoll's flower picturo is very tastefully arranged. MissO. A. Wescott, of Edisto Island, has displayed great skill in her painting on the inner lining of tbo Palmetto cabbage leaf. Miss M. B. Arthur's pencil drawing is exceeding? ly well done. Mr. Edward S. Jcuuison, of Charleston, iu a worsted-work portrait of .General Washington, shows what uu individual of tho male persuasion can accomplish iu his leisure hours.

Man Found Dead?Mvkdku and Ron liEiry.?[tiformation reached us yester? day of tho perpetration ol a most foul and brutal assassination upou the person of Mr. John B. Harris, on Sunday night last, about ono mile uud a half from Graniteville, S. C. Mr. Harris lived ubout threo ui?e.s from Graniteville, and left the village at u late hour in tho after? noon, mounted, to go home. Yesterday morning his lifeless body was found iu tho road, ubout one mile and a half from tho village, with two pistol shot wounds ?ono iu the bond nnd tho other iu the left side. That ho was killed for the purpose of robbery seems apparent from the fact that his pockets wero found to have been rifled. The horso upon which ho was mounted made its way homo yes? terday morning. No cluo has heeu ob? tained to the perpetrator of tho cold | blooded deed, so far ns wo are advised. IA wjttstt i Chron idc. Anotiiek Roueson County Outlaw &1uirsted. ? Gov.
