. ^
People must not misunderstand <
the motives of Congress in refusing , 1
to grant a general amnesty, and . 1
preferring to pass bills every now <
and then, giving pardons to speci- 1
ally-named individuals. This *
course is pursued for a purpose <
baser and more vile than mere pol- t
, atics. Not alone that tbey are thus i
enabled to drum up recruits for i
the Republican party in the South r
by excluding all who lean to the . 1
i Democratic party from the privilege
j of amnesty. The chief object is to , \
j keep open the door for conniption J j
! and bribery. A general amnesty t
would yield no money ; individual ]
amnesties can be, and often arc,' y
made a soarce of revenue to tbe }
men who deal them out. I cannot j
say positively thut any in ember of j
Congress has been paid directly
! lor scciirinir theinsertion of n nsim^ .
in an amnesty* bill, but I can say
that persons nave pan! a? high as
?100 for that privilege. The!
money -is paid to the influential f
friends of.radical members of the 1
Reconstruction Committee; and I s
take it that the state of affairs is c
not entirely unknowti to those c
members. Men come here from 1
the South to get their disabilities j 1
removed. They want to be eligible j 1
for office of some kind. They are j
very soon directed to some one f]
who can have their names inserted s
in tin next bill, and for this inser 11

Important from Cuba. t
Havana, January 2. c
Intense excitcment prevails here in
conBcquonco of an announcement in c
the Havana journals this evening that ]
the revolution had terminated. Ac- ij
cording to the published statement, t
the editors of the journals have seen '
a copy of a circular signed by the {.
members of the Cuban Junta in New t
York, ordering the insurgents bo. lay } t
down their arms for the present, and 1 f.
giviog as a-rcason for the .abandon- j 1
ment of the insurrection the failare of 1
a rccenfc filibustering expedif' "?u and j
the inability of the Junta to Bend | i
more men; and further, the dishear-11
tening action 'of the American Gov- j i
crument;in permitting the guhboatato 1
oaii from New York. The circular, i
r severely attacks the course of Grant, <
The Junfa advyaes the Cubans to sub- 1
mit to tfcie Spaniards in order, to save i
further bloodshed. t
The Voce de Cuba announces the t

One of the organs of the Episcopal
Church in tlio North coin
nil-ills witn deserved severity upon
tho use, or rather abuse, of the
churches of that denomination in
ilie matter of fashionable weddings
in which the temple oi God is converted
into a species of theater,
with the altar in lieu of footlights,
mid a gapping crowtf of people for
spectators. Some local belle is to
bo married, and forthwith the
whole affair is advertised in a way
which is shocking to every one
ivlio has any delicacy or refinement
the trousseau is put on exhibition,
the bride and groom interviewed ;
the bridesmaids' names, personal
Appearance, age, means, and drcssi)8
given ai length ; the ceremony
is actually rehearsed, with only the
usual squabbling incident to private
theatricals, and what should be a
ilignilied and solemn event, becomes
x disgusting spectacular ati'air, in
which nobody is especially intcres

Lhc ragauiullius who block up the
doors and sidewalks. Sensible
people have long seen the absurdity
mid bad taste of marriages of this
kind, and it is only proper that
clergymen should refuse to allow
Ihcir churches to be desecrated in
Ibis way. The bishops of the various
dioceses will, no doubt, take
nctio:i in the matter before long,
Liud it is to be hoped that their
example will be followed by ministers
of other deuominatons, even

An Old Wheat Grower's Experience.?Major
Philip says in the
Maine Former.
"For the first eight or ten years
that I farmed it myself, I was mucli
perplexed by wheat being smutty,
and tried tlie various remedies then
in use, but with no success. I took
some six bushels, which was quite
smutty, and went to a neighboring
town to mill. There I saw one oi
the most successful wheat growers
in Franklin County, and he gave
me the following remedy: "Tals?
a large tub, sufficient to hold-'the
amount wanted to be used; prfTiii
the wheat and wash cleiltaptfien
drain oft" tl e water, and fill again
with clean water, so as to cover the
wheat. Then dispctve two ounces
of pure vitrol to tSach bushel, and
turn into the tub; sffg^pltogether
and let the same stand t\$fenty-four
hours, and theu sow the seed."
"In following out the directions
?A.. ? 1 T xl
i given uuovu, jl me nrst year prepared
six bushels to sow a certain
piece of ground, and there was not
enough by aboat one peck. I went
and got that, washed it and sowed
the same, but without being soaked
in the preparation of vitriol. The
result was, the last sowed grew at
least one-fourth smut; while that
prepared with vitrol grew not one
head or kernel ot smut, that could
bo fouud. I have followed the
foregoiog rule inyself for the last
thirty years, and have induced many
others to do the same, and always
with th^same result.

The Latest Bourbon Manifesto.?
Ilenri Bourbon, Count de Chambord,
represents the legitimate lino of the
Bourbons. Ho is one of the two pre- j
tenders to the French throne. j
pretender is the Duke de Chartragfc
grandson of Louis Philippe. GomSfc* |
do Chambord sees the changes^whwh^ *
' are talcing place in Franco. He nRlfa ?
tolerate the empire and CmariaSLT *
but ho cannot tolerate the empire trim1 <
liberty. Napoleon's reforms have frightcned
him. Hence tho flonnt.'s i
loud talk about hereditary rights. \
For seventeen years the Count has e
been watching the empire. Now that t
the empire enters -upon a new phase
the Count feels called upon to reiterato
hereditary claims. If France
prefers to remain a monarchy, why C
should Dot France bo as happy with r
a Bourbon as with a Bouaparte?
This manifesto of the Count reveals ?
ono of the difficulties of the hour.^ t
Napoleon cannot live always. So soon d
as he is dead the Bourbons, younger P
and older, will havo as good a chance, ?l
as the son of the Third Napoleon^ fc)
But France must be allowed to judge 1
for herself.?Herald. ' ' n

Thz Chatham Road.?A correspon- a,

When this Chatham Road will

certain, and the general impression is
that it will be years before it pene- a(
tratcs to Cheraw, the originally in- ?
tended ultimato terminus, if indeed it
ever reaches there at all, notwith- di
standing the assurance of Dr.,Hawk- ?
ins, potential as ho has always been t
boen considered in rail road affairs.
This gentleman, I understand, has do- ^

road through to Cheraw under any ^
circumstances, and has asserted his
