We observe a disposition among tlie
miners of the State to take up the af
fairs of this Institution and urge its
claims to be recognized, re-endowed,
and once more set going. This is as it
should be, and we nail with pleasure
any movement towards so desirable an
end. ISoth political parties in our State
should be able to approach the subject
by this time calmly, and in good faith,
and with but one wish in reference to
it that the best Interests of the State
shall be consulted, without regard to
Party, Sect or Person.
Intlllorpnt man in the State
must wish to see the University re-established.
For though many men un

will come to grief unless something is
done speedily to purge the administra
tion, State and National, of this incu

all the subordinates, with two excep
tions, are Democrats, and while eating
Republican bread and butter, in every
election they vote against those who
furnish them with daily food. Can
there be any sense of propriety, much
less justice, in retaining such men when
we have an abundance of men in our own
ranks who are equally qualified , and
would fill such places with honor to the
party and thereby enabled to work for
their successors in oflSce. If Gen. Grant
should adopt that rule, how long would
we have a Republican President? Let
him appoint a Democrat to office and
these very men would condemn him,
yet these simon-pure Republicans or
Democrats can have a many subs as
they choose, and no one must doubt
their fealty to the Republican cause.
The Federal subordinates are equally
as numerous. The Clerk of the United
States Circuit Court is a Democrat with
two sub Democrats ; the United States
Marshal has made Democratic appoint
ments; Collectors have Democratic
deputies, and Postmasters Democratic
Clerks. Should this thing continue

become martyrs, and set up the yell of per
secution in order to enlist sympathy. No
toriety and position obtained in thisway is
short lived, and the subject sums; deeper
into insignificance, than formerly. That
which seems to be sympathy, and serves to
excite the passions of the beholder, junder-
goes a peculiar kind of re-action, ana mo
Martyr is dubbed " Poor Devil," , with the
extra-peculiar blessing, " let him go ne
ain't worth noticing." We allude, of course,
to the self-made political martyr-rthe indi
vidual who seeks persecution by acts which
are known to him as violations of the law
the law violated for tho purpose of making
party capital-and , this, too, with an air of
defiance a bragadocia defiance, peculiar wj
the "shoulder-strikers" who infest the
lowest dens of infamy. Party-men1, of the
better-class, protected by tho bomb-proof
Avil martvrs. When, inl their
souls, they despise and detest them but use
them for a purpose, ana wnen uiai purxjow
is attained or defeated, they "turnja cold
shoulder," and let their scavengers and dirt
throwers, go down to their own proper level.
Wo shall see examples of this sort, in the
Democratic party, before the great; Presi
dential campaign closes. Mark the predic

1 A Chain of Disasters. The Baltimore
r'.iyvni-nT JTrnr-nnl. well remarks, that the
Chicajro fire is the all absorbing topic. This
disaster is dicussed atrthis present moment
throughout the civilized world ; and we are
told, that while the flames were spreading
devastation over that doomed city, men,
with demon hearts, were caught applying
torches to houses not yet reacnea ry tne
ames. And we are told.
they were unceremoniously snqt aown,
while others ,wero marched off with ropes
around their necks. It will be almost im
possible to calculate the loss in money, by
this great fire, to say nothing of tie suffer
ing by cold and hunger, and the deaths
which must ensue, and have already occur
red. Unfortunately, and as a very singular
and lamentable coincidence, this tremen
dous fire was preceded and even actually
Rftcomnanied bv disastrous fires in several
places. The lumber regions of Michigan
and Minnesota are still ravagea joy-ine
flames, and we hear of a large fire at Mil
waukee, Wisconsin. Thirty men were burn
ed to death at Pensauki, and part of the
town-was in ashes when the informer left!
It was feared that after his departure the
rest of the town must have been burnt.
A t i nint on the railroad, two miles north
of - Jefferson, Wisconsin, another fire burst
tout In a wood pile, destroying the telegraph
iin and no trains could pass eitner way.
Near Louisville, two spans of the Iiouisvilltf
and Marietta Bailroad bridge over ban riv
er were burned, compelling the transfer of
freight and passengers. It is supposea uie
the writers of the letter to Judge uona,
vithout whom the Democratic party in this
State would have no head no leaders
coming forward and denouncing the organ
ization, we may reasonably expect that the
entire klan will become disbanded, and
there will be none, no, not one, left to glory
in the reflection that he belonged to the
army of the second rebellion in North
Carolina. 1 .
But, it has proved a National evil already,
inasmuch as immigration has been crip
pled, and the hard money of foreign coun
tries has been kept from our shores. A
portion-of the United States, from a foreign
stand-point, is viewed as a great theatre of
fillibusters, outlaws and , cut-throats. Es-
oil XT ia tho South shunned by the
VVAW w .
laboring men of other nations, who, sick of
their own despotism, would gladly flee to
America, and swear allegiance to the Stars
and Stripes.' They have heard much of the
great extent of Southern territory the rich
valleys and mineral hills of the South but
life,' even under their own government of
Kings and Queens is far more desirable
than a life among midnight assassin's.
Hence, we say, this Ku Klux organization
is a great National Evil ; and it is being so
viewed by the National Government.
South Carolina, our sister, and once a
portion of North Carolina, is now undergo
ing the tortures of the "Dens," with a se
verity never known in North Carolina. It
has been deemed advisable and necessary,
by the President of the United States, to,
issue his Proclamation, commanding the
citizens in tho "counties r of Spartanburg,
York, Marion, Chester, Laurens, Newbery,
Fairfield, Lancaster and Chesterfield, to
disperse and to retire peaceably to tneir
homes within five 'days of the date hereof,
and to deliver, either to the Marshal of the
United States for the district of South Caro
lina, or to any of j his deputies, or to any
military officer of !the United States within
said counties, all arms, ammunition; "uni
forms, disguises, and other means and im
plements usedkept, possessed, or control
led by them, for carrying out the unlawful
purposes for which the combinations and
conspiracies are organized."
We can see no harshness in this Proc
lamation. It is a step .taken byjthe Presi
dent, only after every other means has been
exhausted to restore law and order in South
Carolina, and we unhesitatingly, endorse
and commend this action of the President.
