The zig-zagjoourdo and sadden dar eh
to earth of the Graphic balloon is bat a
circumstance in oomparison with the
tortuous'whirlings of oar neighbor, the
Union-Harald, uu the bonded deb* vaca?
tion, and its rapid desoent to the deep?
est depths of Radical immorality, in its
last utterances on that grave subjeot.
It fleNv high in the air, eiroling glorious?
ly towards the sun, and made the wel?
kin ring with its screams of denuncia?
tion of Morton, Bliss ?mQp.'s olaims.
Men looked With surpriae %t its unex?
pected, demonstrative and noisy re
proaohes and rebukea of the profligate
crew who had cheated the poor people?
the dear and humble people who sweat
in fields behind the plow, end holding
the hoe. and spade in their hard and
sweaty hands?out of their small but
honest earnings, and saddled upon their
toil and that of their descendants for
generations to oome an intolerable load
of spurious debt, Distrust of the sin?
cerity of all this indignation, all this
palaver which flowed in copious streams
for Beveral months, and frothed up and
down in the cola tan conduits of the
Herald,. was freely expressed by some
unbelieving skeptics. Even wo, mild
and gentle as we always are to our con?
temporary, were constrained to charac?
terize the display as theatrical. Like
the bully in the "Georgia Scenes," the
Herald was only rehearsing, and "soein'
how it could a font." We are grieved
1, to say that our forebodings wore true.
The Herald shrinks from the. last round.
It retires to its corner, or its "ring."
"Alaal Matilda thon was true,
At least I thou iht so (?) at the U-"
If it went bigh, it has como down low.
In its issuo of yesterday morning, it
says that the Legislature has been called
- to arrange some compromise with the
.public creditors. The responsibility for
' the debt, it of oonrse saddles upon the
-Democrats. The Radical Government
? Contracted it, but, somehow or other,
the Democrats are the fellows to blame.
? It was the jaundiced opinion manufac- j
^ured by them abroad whioh produced
the monetary embarrassments, and be?
trayed the poor innocent Radical
officials to do wrong in re-issuing bonds,
in hypothecating the Agricultural Col?
lege land scrip, and in other similar
operations. They stole just to spite the
Democrats, who "hadn't onghter" to
have dealt oat to them suoh "unmea
SOIed scorn and contempt." We are used
to this sort of talk. It does not hurt.
It is not meant to be believed, except iu
oiroles where anything will pass current,
and where counters are as good as coins.
It appears a new light has boouq round
about the Herald, which enables it to see
the error or its ways. It is ready to
oondone the crimes of the "bad and irre?
sponsible men'.' of its party, for party's
sake. Whatever 4t\advocated in the
spring uud' summer,'it repudiates now
in the harvest days. It holds it to be
imperative that the monoy borrowed,
with^?J^rdnierest,' should be honestly
returned. It mhat be honestly returned,
whether honestly borrowed or not. The
whole plan and reason for doing this are
revealed in the following passage from
tho Herald: ?
"Whatever legal defect there may be |
in the issuej?r hypothecation of certain
bonds, it is urged by some, with much
sound sense, that a plan should be da
vised to pay those parties back their money,
with interest, who lebt it in good faith to
help sustain a Republican administra?
tion and educate the emanoipated chil?
dren of the State. It would bs political
suicide, stubbing our party in the back, to
repudiate one' dollar of this debtor these
claims. It the oreditor is willing to
take a fair compromise, we should meet
him half way, and as he helped us in
our hour of need, when the Democrats,
the so-called tax-payera, woru laughing
and sneering at as, denouncing our cru?
el it and doing their best to destroy us,
we should be true to him, and pay him
bock fairly, honorably and squarely,
whatever is due him?principal and in?
What a position tea a party or a jour?
nal to takel There is no reasoning with
it. It is impregnable. The party of
moral ideas mast; at all hazards, be
saved from committing euioide. Moral
ideas must be thrown overboard, to
save the life of the party. Honesty
would kill it doad. If it seek to pro?
tect the people and tax-payers, it it r u
jeot those olaims known to bo fraudu?
lent, if it attempt to pry into those to
which the shadow of suspicion attaches,
(see platform,) it will be suspected of
honesty. This it cannot bear* The old
saying of "Give a dog a bad name, and
you might as well hang him," is re?
versed in this instance. It is a good
name whioh is dangerous to the party.

As our readers may not remember it,
we will inform them that *c-&7 (0?V
ber 12) is the an nivereary of the discovery
ol America by Christopher Columbus.
381 year* ago, to day, the world-seeking
Genoese first set foot on 'the shores of
1 the new world. The story of the con
1 oeption in his mind of a new land, or an
ootjntting portion oi the Asiatic conti?
nent, his earnest brooding over it and
perseverance against all discouragements
in testing it, aro told with all the interest
and grace of style which Washington
Irving so fully commanded. In the
prosecution of his purpose, he adapted
his argumenta to the comprehension of
his hearers, using small as great, simple
illustrations as well as abstruse calcula?
tions. He argued that wherover there
was sea, there must be earth both to cor?
respond to it and to bound it. It oould
not extend indefinitely. Earth was not
only beneath the waters, but must
somewhere appear upon the surfaoe iu
continents and islands, as a just and ne?
cessary equipoise. Meeting disappoint?
ment everywhere else, he finally enlisted
the interest of Ferdinand and Isabella
of Spain, and, after due preparations,
boldly sailed away over the traokleea
ooean. The voyage was uot very long,
but hia crew became dissatisfied at the
hopeless prospect. But ho managed to
quiet their apprehenaione and to inspire
them with his own hopes. They were
cheered as it bocar.uo cert&sn. that they
were approaching land, of which proofs
of floating timber, weeds, birdB, See,
were preseuted to their byes. The
green shores of the Bahamas at last rose
to view, and "that greut antiquity,"
America, was discovered, or re-diaco
vered, as the case may have been. It
was a grand day in the world's history,
a discovery whose consequences uro be?
yond the powers of calculation to connt
or Imagination to conjecture. Below,
we copy Borne thoughts appropriate to
them from the Courier-Journal:
"Whether it be true or not, that the
anoient Norsemen visited this eountry
in the eleventh century, or that the cele?
brated Welsh Prince, Madoc, landed
with a 6tnall fleet in Virginia, 100 years
or bo afterwards, the claims of Colum?
bus are in no manner affected thereby.
He philosophically reasoned out for him?
self the existence of land at the point
toward which he sailed, and trusted him?
self in a crazy craft, to the wild waves
of an uncharted ocean, with the strong
faith of a great moral hero. The diffi?
culties which he encountered and over?
came, add to the groatner.a of the enter?
prise, and as we now can see it, to the
reputation of the man. Obstacles pre?
sented by prejudioe and superstition
were even greater than those of a
atrictly material character. But he rose
triumphant ovar all, and gave to the old
world an unknown, yut twin-sister, born
at the same chaotic birth, laved by the
same multitudinous waters uud fanned
by the same far-reaohing galeB. It is
meet that euoh a discovery and such u
day should be fitly commemorated* Ere
the lapse of four centuries from the 12th
of October, 1492, when Columbus first
set foot on the soil of San Salvador, the
land which he diaoovered has become
the Land of Promise to the very ends
of earth. In its rapidly increasing
population aud the development of re?
sources, it has outstripped the moat san?
guine dreams of even the sanguine Co?
lumbus, giving a material verification to
the Master's assertion: 'The lu?t shall
be first.' The new world has become
the peer of the old in civilization, and
has far outstripped her in all thosu ele?
ments of material advaucement which
make life enjoyable. To Columbus uud
his discovery all this is due. Before the
next esntury wanes, tho tides of popu?
lation, aettiug in from thu far Eist and
the far West as they now do, will make
North und South America, with their ad?
jacent isles, not only the most populous,
but tho most prosperous uud powerful
of the great divisions of tho globe"
"A Hide Learning 1? u. Dangerous
The Union-Herald, of Friday last, has
treated its readers to a learned (?^eBsuy
on Westminster Abbey, in the course of
which we are iuformed that it is the last
resting-placo of Wellington, Shaksj>eare
und Milton. Wo hud supposed, until
we read this recondite uriicle, that Wel?
lington wus buried in St. Paul's, that
Shakspearo still slept ut Stratford-ou
Avon, protected by his famous anathema,
"Curs'd be ho who moves my bones,"
and that Milton's remains rented in
peace iu the humble church of St. OileB
Cripplegate. Bat the Herald, true to its
name and vocation, uunouuues some?
thing new and radical. It disturbs the
dead no less than the living. By way
of justification, it may say, as a charac?
ter in Molieru does, who unluokily lo?
cated the heart on tho right side, "We
havo changed all that." Radical! radi?
oall to the back-bone.

Itefeiac to T?k? Thulr Own Pills.
Toe aotloa of tbo Board of Trustees
of the South Carolina University, on
Friday, demands a word at our bauds.
Had they simply accepted the resigna?
tions of' Drs. Talley, Gibbet and La
Borde, we should have had nothing to
oomplain of. But they have accompa?
nied tbe acceptance with a statement of
satisfaction that the professors baVe
withdrawn. They "cannot regret,"
they say, "that a spirit so hostile," Sea.,
"will no longor be represented in tbe
University." This commtint upon re?
signations is onboard of in the history
of tho College, and. were there nothing
else to show it, demonstrates tbe degra?
dation to whioh the institution is tend?
ing. The imputation and the sin is that
tho professors resigned ou account of tbe
admission oi Seoretry Hayne as a medi?
cal student. How the action of the pro?
fessors ought to be considered, will ap?
pear more clearly in the light of one or
two facts whioh we fiud it profitable to
recall, and--which we commend to the
oonsideration of the board. This is
not the first of Hayne's feats iu this
way. Being almost white, uud yut rep?
resenting the black race, he is a good
wedge to open the way for it into new
places. A few years ago, he appeared,
one bright Sunday morning, at the com?
munion table of Christ Church, tbo
pulpit of which was occupied by Ruv.
Mr. Babbitt, and the members of which
were principally Northern people resi?
dent horc and a few natives who parti?
cularly sympathised with thorn. Upou
tbo approach of Hayno, a member with?
drew, a hubbub ensued, and the Mission
Churob of Mr. Babbitt went inconti?
nently to pieces. No more services
were held iu it. The Northern people
who composed the congregation would
go no more. They would uot woiship
iu the same building or commune at tho
same table with Hayne. Mr. Babbitt
himself described the break-up iu most
unloyal language: "The fact is, as we
say up North, thore was a negro in tbe
wood-pile." Mr. Babbitt iu a shining
light now?not in Christ Church, but in
he College. He has muoh satisfaction
in welcoming Hayne to membership in
its sooiety, whom he failed to protect at
the communion table from the in?
sults of his own countrymen. What
think you of that, Messieurs Trustees?
And what do you think of Mr. Babbitt,
who caved in so ingloriously ou the ne?
gro question, at a time and under cir?
cumstances when courage aud principle
were demanded. Tbe negro is strong
now, and so is Mr. Babbitt; but it
would have been oonsiderod more manly
auy where else than in the Radical party,
to have stood boldly by his black bro?
ther, when he more needed recognition
Again. We have it upou the boat
authority, that a considerable uamber
of Northern residents here?new and
old comers?intended to send their sonn
to tbe College, if it had not taken the
unfortunate turn it has. Now that tho
forerunner of u black invasion has gono
in, tbey havo abandoned that intention.
They were willing to entrust their sons
to Messrs. Baruwell, Rivers, LaBorde,
Faber, Szo., upou the prospect of only
white students attending, but are posi?
tively determiued to withdraw them
from their successors and their allies,
with tho expected irruption of colored
students. Sueh a disregard of "the
welfare of the Stute, as well as of tho
dictates of jubticc aud tho claims of our
common humanity," such an unwilling?
ness to stand by the colorod man and
take him cordially by tho hand, ou tho
part of these Northern people, shows a
lamentable inconsistency between pro?
fession and practice. Will the Board of
Trustees think ou these things?
Iu view of the approaching crisis and
tho dark outlook for Republicanism in
France, the French Republicans appeal
to tho sympathies of Americans, and
ask that clubs aud public meetings be
organized in behalf of their oause. Ah,
Messieurs, wo can't attend to tho sort of
Republicanism wo havo here.
A Decided Turn oe the Screw.?Tbo
farmers of Montgomery County, iu Ala?
bama, have been pretty well UBod up by
oottou planting, during the past few
years, just as the Montgomery mer?
chants were tremendously floored by
speculating in futures, last season. So
bad is the situation that they have been
constrained to call a meeting of tho fra?
ternity, in order to devise ways and
means of confronting a diro calamity.
By au almost exolusive devotion to cot?
ton planting, we presume, coupled with
fatal seasons, these Alabama farmers
have found themselves on the verge of
ruin. Tho remedy suggested by the
local pross is the true oue, in tbe main,
aud that is, to abandon the insanity of
wholesale cotton planting, aud strive to
make something to eat. The planter of
cotton, who has no capital and attempts
to make his orop by borrowing, who
shows no prudence in procuring ad?
vances, and vory little in putting all of
his eggs in one banket, is a doomed man
I from the start. *

Lent's Celebrated New York Cir
cu*.?-On Wednesday next, the great
New York Circus, owned and conducted
by the far-famed manager, Mr. L. B.
Lent, will exhibit in Columbia, aud tue
event will be hailed with pleasure on
all sides. Of the many entertainments
of this character that have been put oe
fore the people, Lent's show takes the
lead from all in two very important re?
spects, i. e , the mug n dice hoc of its
paraphernalia and the attention to de?
tails that characterizes its eaoh and
every exhibition. Mr. Lent would
rather give uo show at all thau present
an exhibition that should be marked
by a display of rowdyism on the part
of the* performers and other attaohees,
such as is too commonly the case with
many shows. He aims to elevate the
standard of arenic entertainments by
presenting only such attractions as are
strictly lirst-olass iu character; and he
also desires to make hia exhibitions at?
tractive to the better class of people by
having them conducted, in every de?
partment, in a manner that would re?
flect credit upon the manager of the
most respect able theatre. Mr. Lout's
ideas, in this regard, are very well
known, and, from the notioes of his
show?highly complimentary in charac?
ter?whiob we have aeon in Northern
papers and the papers of Virginia and
North Carolina, we feol assured that he
pleases wherever he goes. His circus
proper is the same that for seven sue- j
ceasivo winters held sway over the hearts
aud pocket-books of the good people of
Qotbain, ut the iron, building on Four?
teenth street. The burning of this
structure in December last has com?
pelled the popular manager to keep to
the road longer than usual, aud it is this
necessity that brings him among the
Southern people, coupled with a strong
desire to show them what is meant by
a "first-class oirous." The menagerie
department of this great show contains
a long list of beasts, bu ds and reptiles
of the rarest varieties. They are, one
and all, splendid specimens of their
kind, and this branch of the show
wius the most lavish approbation from
all who witness it. Remember it is on
Wednesday, the 15th, that this show
exhibits in Colombia.

her bead. The braised and bruising
Kellys went out of oourt together.
