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 ilmiMfHllv hnvn manv minds. and there mavle a great diversity of opinion up on the best modes of education, and in are rife, and while colleges abound new methods do also mucn more aoounu vet on one point we must all agree n-imoiv th.it -North Carolina is in no condition to be trying costly experi mentsher business lx?ing mainly to timKlv fnr i while".

I fear it will come to grief unless something is done speedily to purge the administra tion, State and National, of this incu bus. Look at the capitol of the State ; 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.

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. The Columbia Union of the 13th October (last Friday,) says : "While the United States Marshal is at work arresting Ku Klux in Spartanburg county, the Klan are busy with their ope rations in Laurens county. Yesterday, a colored man reached this city from Lau rens, who had been brutally whipped, and ordered to leave the country; and intelli gence has reached here to the effect that outrages by whipping are common in many portions of that section.
