S-mth Carolina Affairs.
NEW YORK, November 5.-To thc Pub
lic-Many false representations and state
ments have been made and published
against the credit of the State of South
Carolina. It is true that $20,204,000
worth of bonds bava- been printed, ol'
which amount $9,000,000 have never been
signed or issued, nor were they printed
with the intention to increase the State
debt, but are in possession of the State
authorities ; also, $3,5QO,000 sterling bonds
have been printed but not issued ; $2,500,
000 of registered stock are now in the
hands of the Treasurer of the State, being
the balance of $5,040,000 issued. The
Legislature, from time so time, passed
several acts for the issue of bonds to pay
the indebtedness of the State. Subse
quently it passed an act for the conversion
of its securities. . To provide for this, the
above amount in bonds w-.s printed, which
bas given, to romy groundless misrepresen
tations arie: gro ss fabrications.

Thc World statp.s that the entive State
government of South Carolina is here.
The American Bank Note Company print
ed twenty million bonds for Mr. Kempton,
Financial Agent of the State. It is said
that Governor Scott admits that the bonds
were printed, but deniis that all were is
sued ; but does not state the amount is
sued. Kempton, it is asserted, brings
claims against the State for services and
commissions amounting to four millions,
and the other State officers have not dared
to resiat payment thereof, though much ol' j
it ia for renewal, which was credited to,the
new loans. The commissions, it is said,
will more than swallow the original loan
The expenses of the last Legislature, eight
hundred thousand dollars, have not beer,
paid. The World concludes by stating
that its information is from a source en
( titling it to the highest credit. The per
sons giving it express confident belief that
a fraudulent issue, amounting to $20,046,
000 of State bonds, has been negotiated,
and the money misapplied, and are con
vinced that if it should prove that thc
State is involved to that amount, it will
be irrevocably insolvent.
CHICAGO, November 4.-Gov. Palmer
has written a letter to the Attorney Gen
eral, directing him to present the facts bi
regard to the killing of General Grosver
uor to the grand jury ol' Cook county.
Palmer argues that the act was the resuli
of usurpation on the part of General Sher
idan anil others.
LATER.-Governor Palmer, after allud
ing to the circumstances preceding thr
death of Grosverner, concludes: "I think
you will perceive it is now the duty of thf
Governor and Attorney-General, and all
other officers, to sec that the laws are en
forced against all parties concerned
these illegal and dangerous acts. It
not necessary, in determining upon tin
line of duty to be adopted, to inquire
whether the Mayor of Chicago, Lieuten
ant-General Sheridan and Frank T. Sh?r
man, and his associates and subordinate*
-who were the agents by which the death
of Thomas Grosvener was produced, in
assuming powers they did not possess, anti
which cannot be conferred upon them
were influenced by proper or improper
motives or purposes. They assumed to
susoend the operations of the Constitution
and laws of the State, and substitute in
their stead laws and militan* force, to bt
defined and applied by themselves. They,
by their lawless acts, attacked and insult
ed the dignity and authority of the State
and have, by their dangerous example,
weakened public confidence in the Con
stitution and laws, and in their : tempt
to enforce usurped and lawless authority,
they have sacrificed the life of a peacea
ble citizen. Animated by the confidence
I have thu3 expressed, and confident in
the belief that the State of Illinois, acting
through the proper departments of it.?
government, is capable of protecting its
own people, and of enforcing the dignity
and authority of its own laws, I have to
request that" you, in conjunction with the
State's Attorney of tho Seventh Circuit,
will bring all the facts before the Grand
Jury of Cook county, in order that ali
persons concerned in thc unlawful killing
of Thomas W. Grosvcrnormay be brought
io a speedy trial. .

WASHINGTON, NOV. 4.
Parties who left Salt Lake City on Sat
urday arrived here to-day, and have com
municated to government officials some
interesting facts connected with the situa
tion there. They state that the prosecu
tion of the polygamists is injuring busi
ness very much ; that Eastern capitalists
thereto invest in mining interests are
leaving; and that/the Mormons are leav
ing, and that the /Gentiles are curtailing
their business operations and sending their
wives and children to places of safety. It
is added that the government has recently
sold to these very Mormons old muskets
tor a dollar apiece, and that if war comes
the Mormons will present a formidable
front, though it is not improbable that
they may all emigrate to Mexico. It is
estimated that not twenty Gentiles in
Utah favor the persecution of the Mor
mons, and that even the Federal mili
tary authorities are indifferent to it on the
surface, and at heart are opposed to it.
Thdse representations will have no effect,
as it was decided in the Cabinet meeting
on Tuesday to continue the present policy.

The Union Times says ; " Information

soldiers under command of a Deputy
United States Marshal, went to the resi

week to arrest him. Capt. Lyle was not
at home, and the soldiers broke down
doors and behaved in a very unmanly
manner. They rode their horses into thc

The recent arrests in Spartanburg have
been accomplished too peacably and quiet
ly for the Radicals in this State. The
leaders are disappointed and chagrined at
finding that our people are ready and
willing to submit peacefully to the " Fede

ance to that authority in South Carolina,
and in that way bolster up the infamous
lies they have issued against us. They,
however, are determined to do something
that humanity cannot submit to in order
to force a resistance, ever, though it comes
from women and children, so that they
may howl it into billing ears, as corrobo
ration of their devilish lies.
A FOREGONE CONCI/TSION.-The Radi
cal Governor of South Carolina says there
was no necessity for a suspension of ha
beas corpus in that State. A Radical
judge, in charging a grand jury and ur

How is IT ?-If a few rich people be
come houseless by misfortune, how chari
table some folks get to be ! Yet poor peo
ple who lose their all, and others who liad
nothing to lose, are piously left by these
same to starve or steal ? What an over
ado some people are making about Chica
go, while in Charleston, for instance, the
sufferers from yellow fever are left to bear
not only their own individual losses amt
bardens, but the bardens of the poor sick
and dead strangers ami foreigners, as well
ns their own native bom poor. It is not
against Chicago sufferers we speak, but
against the charity that drowns thc cries
ot the poor at our doors by blowing a
trumpet of foreign blast so hard as to pro
duce perspiration : mistaking, however,
drops of sweat tor tears of charity.

Our people took an enormous number
of very important premiums. Aa the
premium list is not yet published, we
jot down some items from memory.
Our friend, Lemuel Corley, Esq.,-who
must henceforth be considered a wheel
horse among agriculturists-took the
following First Premiums :-For largest
yield of Cotton upon one acre-3 bales,
manured with Mathewson's Soluble Pa
cine Guano. For largest yield of Corn
upon one acre-160 bushels. For best
bale.of Pea Vine Hay. For best 2 bush
els of Oats. And besides all this, a son
of Mr. Corley took the premium (a gold
watch) for the best crop of Corn by a
boy under 1? years of age. Hurrah for
the Corleys-pere e? fila !
Col. Thos. G. Bacon took the following :
-For best Southern-raised thorough
bred Stallion 4 years old-Mozart. This
horse also won the mile race on Wednes
day-purse ?400. For best imported Stal
lion-Glengary. For best ?outhern-rais
ed thoroughbred brood-mare with colt
by her side-Lost Cause. For best South
ern-raised thoroughbred Filly over 2
years old-Girl of my Heart.
Mr. Holloway Claig took the fii^t
premium for best Southern raised Jack
-?50 in gold.
Col. A. P. Butler, of Cherokee Ponds,
took the first premium for Largest Tur
nips. We looked at these Turnips, and
many of them, we are confident, weigh
ed 15 lbs.
Mr.'W. S. Howard took the first pre
mium for best 10 gallons Apple Vinegar,
made on his farm hi the Graniteville sec
Miller, Hack <fe Howard (the same
Howard) Grocers of Augusta, took the
first premium for the finest display of

Col. Thos. P. Shaw took the first pre

ling Apple ; and then another premium
for the finest display of such Apples.
Col. Shaw gave us two or threo of these
Apples, and our eyes dilate now at the
very memory of them.
Miss Lavinia Kenney, of the Harmony
section, took a handsome gold spoon for
her magnificent Hand Bouquets. They
were really unapproachably beautiful.
Col. Jonathan Miller, J Mills Clark
and lady, and other Beach Island people,
took many fino premiums, but for the
life of us we cannot call them to mind at
The Tournament and the Ball.
Of course we mean the tournament and
the ball in Augusta last week. The tour
nament was good, but not good enough.
The tournament of the Annual Exhibi
tion of tho Cotton States Association
ought to be a much grander, much hand
somer, much more brilliant, much more
formal affair. The costumes of the knights
on this last occasion were beneath all
criticism. In fact the show-tournaments
of the present day have lost almost every
vestige of similitude to tho tournaments
of the days of chivalry. Mr. Twiggs
took the first prize. Mr. Hack was the
But the ball was another thing. It was
grand and brilliant. When it is not work
with Augusta, it is dross and dance!
Heavens ! how Augusta can dress and
dance! Bah, the Princess Metternich,
the Marquise de Gallifet, and other fa
mous cocodettea of Paris may bo conceit
ed in tho matter, but should they ever
como to Augusta and attend a tourna
ment or ball, they would find that other
women in the world also knew a thing
or two !
The ball was in the Masonic Hall. By
ten o'clock it was resplendent with fair
,"__. . _>-?irai, -A view ta*?1
hy a small and quiet individual, from an
obscure but somewhat elevated nook,
presented dazzling vistas of diamonds,
and silks and white arms and shoulders,
and dress coats and lavendc pants and
starr}- shirt bosoms. We will describe
three costumes slightly. We have time
for no more. The very stylish lad}' in
the splendid white satin train and black
velvet panier, is Mrs. W. D. Around the
panier hangs black Brussels lace of great
depth ; and costly laces on the corsage,
and costly jewels on neck and anns,
make up a costume grand enough for the
Duchess of Sutherland. The queenly
lady in yellow silk, is Miss A. R. Her
train is immensely long, and her dress Ls
very expensively trimmed with black
veivet, black Brussells or Chantilly lace,
and huge pink and yellow roses. It is
beautiful, and the lady calls to miiul an
other English Duchess-the picture of
Her Grace of Richmond in Burnett's old
history. Andslill another tall and stalely
lady, and still another buff silk. It is
Miss E. R., of Edgefield. Her dress is
rich and exquisite in taste. It is long
and sweeping; the skirt is trimmed down
either side in front with pull's of black
tulle, and the body has upon it thc rich
est lace both black and white. She at
tracks much attention.
And now the crash of the music-it is
a Charleston band wc believe-sets the
whole buzzing hive in motion, and then
the brilliants upon necks and arms, and
the starry shirt fronts, borrowing -even
greater brilliancy from the blazing lights
overhead, flash and sparkle and inter
mingle like the Drummond lights of a
thousand locomotives coming into sud
den collision on the-Pennsylvania Cen
tral. It is bewilderingly beautiful and
animated. But the resounding music,
the shuffling of feet on the floor, and thc
hum of words, make our ear-drum ach o
worse than the head of tho big druin in
old John Robinson's circus. By-the by,
wo weut to old John's circus, and died of
delight.. And before our death, such a
pleasant, old time Bohemian feeling came
over us that we boldly rubbed up against
the lion, and stroked the hoads of the
Bengal tigers, and almost essayedtoride
with "tho lady" on two horses. But
back to tho ball. See the electric sparks
flashed from the Marquise do Gallifet's
diamonds as she whirls corners in the
quadrille, and the sudden flare from the
starry shirt fronts as they forward and
back ! They dazzle and pain our eyes so
that we long for apiece of smoked glass !
And in this gay and and joyous dance,
the fashionable people of Augusta forgot
Bullock and Conley, and the State Road,
and all other woes. They locked up their
private skeletons closely at home, and
their public ones they thrust behind their
backs. And wise they were to do so.
And the initial hours of the new day
found them driving away cares of every
nature with the steady tripping of tho
light fantastic toe.
And now we must hold up, for in a few
hours we start to Columbia to see another
Faix, anolher Tournament, and another
Ball. But at this coming ball, wo shall
not occupy a dark nook. We mean to
put on our lavenders and our starry front,
and kick as high as the highest. And
we'll tell you alt about .t next week.

Next week our Court of General Ses
dons and Common Pleas will be in ses
sion, and we understand that the-civil
docket will be given unusual attention,
and consequently most of the suits pend
ing for old war and anti-war debts will
haye a hearing. For,the last three years
all old debts adjusted, have been settled
on the basis of the plan established by
the people of Edgefield in Convention
assembled on the first Monday in April
1868. This paper was prepared by a Com
mittee appointed for that purpose ata
preceding meeting, and was composed of
the following gentlemen : J. A. Devore,
F.W. Pickens, M. Frazier, Julius Banks,
Q. M. Yarborough, M. W. Clary, T. B.
Reese, Abram Jones, B. C. Bryan, Wm
Moss and W. L. Coleman.
We herewith submit the report of the
Committee composed as above (which
Report was at that'time most emphat
icallv and unanimously adopted) to the
attention of our people, and hope our
Jurors at the approaching term of Court
will not, under any circumstances, de
part from tho wise and just method
adopted, and hitherto carried out in full
faith, by our people-both debtors and
creditors .Twenty-five cents on the dol
lar, on old debts, is as much as any of
our citizens are able to pay, and isas
much as any one expects$o receive.
Judge Orr approves of the scaling pf
old debts, and so charges the Juries on
his Circuit. We are not informed as to
Judge Melton's views on this subject,
but we feel satisfied that the intelligent
Jurors of Edgefield will strive to carry
out the will and voice of the citizens of
the District, even should they, in so do
ing, differ from the teachings and instruc
tions of the presiding Judge.
COMPROMISE SETTLEMENT OF
The Special Committee have had under
consid ration the matter submitted to
them by the general meeting held Sale
day in March, at the Masonic Hall, and
beg leave to report as follows :
According to the Censns, the District
of Edgefield had in round numbers 23,
000 slaves. These at a valuation of $500,
for which thev'sold before the war, would
be eleven millions five hundred thousand
dollars ($11,500,000). This was consider
ed safe and stable property, as much so.
as any thing held in the South, and it
was a'll swept off by the results of the
war, and tho acts of tho government. The
whole population went into the war with
enthusiasm, and are equally responsible
for it. We have no data upon which to
estimate the capital vested m stocks and
money to be loaned out, but there is no
just reason why those who held notes or
bonds for money, should not loose any
thing from the face of the notes or bonds,
and that the whole amount, interest and
all, should be paid up, by forced sales,
dollar for dollar, while those who owned
land and negroes should be entirely sac
rificed by a war, in which all engaged
alike, and for the consequences of which,
all should suffer equally. Land has been
reduced in value to almost nothing when
forced to bo sold in ordor to pay money
bonds, notes and mortgages. The labor
that made them valuable has been abol
ished, while most of our taxes aro raised
upon land, and noto and bond holders
are comparativelv but lightly taxed.
Now we think it ?but proper and right
that a community thus situated ought,
as just and patriotic men, to come to some
fair and equitable compromise by which
the settlement of debts should be made.
As neighbors, as fellow-citizens raised
up together in all the walks of life, we
owe it to ourselves, to justice, to honor,
after our terrible calamities, to make a
fair and friendly adjustment of all our
debts, and thus set an example to other
Districts in our ruined and disheartened
State, so they can see that the District
that was amongst the first to lead off in
the war, as a band of brothers, was the
first to show that we are still a band of
brothers, and that brave men aro always
just and magnanimous.
Wo would therefore respectfully ro
commend to thc people of Edgefield Dis
trict, that all notes, bonds, mortgages or
debts now held, involving any consider
ation, or based upon any obfigatons in
curred during the recent war, from 1st
Jan. 1861 to the 1st of May 1S65, shall bc
adjusted and settled upon the basis of a
gold standard at the date of the contract
or obligation, and then placed upon an
equal footing leith debts before thc war.
We further recommend that all notes,
bonds, or m on i ed obligations, of any
?Try^8oY\Vwinterest, shall be reduced
to twenty-five cent/tin the dollar, and paid
We earnestly urge the general basis of
settlement to be made by all our neigh
bors aud fellow citizens,* and whenever
it is not agreed to, then we recommend
that it be submitted to au arbitration of
three or five men as thc pal-ties may agree
upon, and the whqjtt matter referred to
these for full and final settlement. This
would relievo us all from thc heavy ex
pense of litigation in our Courts, and be
fore mixed juries, composed in part of
our former slaves. It is well known that
the expense of litigation, under the gen
eral distressed condition, will <.. nsumc
in most cases two-thrds of the ib?15t re
covered, and if land bc forced to j jay it,
that the sale of land now will not pay tIn
We therefore think the compromise we
propose to our fellow citizens will be
better for both creditor and debtor.
As to settlement of debts due by Guar
dians to Wards, or by Administrators
and Executors to widows and minors,
we would respectfully recommend that
all such be made* upon the same basis,
except that an arbitration be made by
thirteen good citizens chosen by the par
ties alternately, and.that their settlement
be presented to the Court, on petition,
praying that the Judge or Chancellor
shall confirm the same.
We present the above basis of settle
ment to our fellow-citizens, and trust
that it will be adopted and ratified by
this meeting as the sentiment of Edge
field District. If generally acted uponand
acquiesced in, wc hope it would to some
extent, restore confidence and give new
stimulus to industry, because most of us
would then feel that there was some hope
for support to bc secured, by honest labor
and worthy enterprise. All of which is

from the Baltimore3un, of Saturday last,

are swindling the people' out of tens of
thousands of dollars every year. , They
aro as bad as the Tammany ring, and thc
only thing that keep? them from stealing
as much is tho fact that thero isnotso
much to steal. They take all they can
get, however. There are men here in
Columbia occupying positions in tho
State Government who have grown sud
donly rich by steahng. They publish
the fact to the world by sporting gay
equipages upon the streets and living
like princes. This aggravating and or
ganized robbery of an impoverished peo
ple is one of the main causes of the ex
istence of the Ku-Klux-Klan."
g&r General Blair ina recent.speech
said, with reference to the testimony in
Alabama before the Ku Klux Commit
tee : "I have listened to all this testimo
ny which has been given, and I find, as
the net result, that $250,000,000 in bonds
have been extorted from the impover
ished and down-troddeh "South, by tho
o?rpet baggers, who were put in power
in the Southern States." Is'not that
heavy, and is not Gen. F. P. Blair a
Northern man, ?nd a gallant soldier on
the Federal side, in the late war ? Is he
not square and without reproach ?
The Fair in Augusta.
In these days one <6f the strongest
>oints ol interest to the people of West
on South Carolina and Middle Georgia,
s the Annual Fair of tho Cotton States
Mechanics and Agricultural Association
n tne beautiful and interesting city of
Augusta. The second Annual Fair is
ust over, and was happy and successful.
And truly it would be useless to describe
it in detail to our people, for it seems to
us that all Edgefield was mere. Edge
field was powerful in the crowd, power
tul in the exhibition, and powerful in
We have already, a yearago, described
the grounds and buildings prepared for
the Exhibitions of the enterprising and
dignified Association. They aro largo,
commodious, and on a scale of great lib
erality. The grounds, however, have
been very little improved since the first
Fair. We expected this year to see the
grounds transformed into a sort of land
scape garden? but it is not so.
The Exhibition just closed was one of
great beauty and usefulness. It is not
possible though to give, in an article like
this, a description of the attractive fea
tures of so fine a Fair. We can only say
that the most elegant and perfect in the
useful and ornamental was there repre
sented, filling the three vast buildings
to say nothing of the stables and cattle
sheds-with a variety so entertaining and
so dazzling to the senses that the mind
became fairly intoxicated with the won
derful display, and the infinite variety of
the handy-works of man, guided by the
highest order of human ingenuity.
The President, Mr. Berckmans, and
all his officers are gentlemen of com
plete education, strong practical sense,
and most cavalier spirit. In fact they
combine the utilitarian, the aesthetic and
the courteouselements in a manner which
is truly admirable.
We need hardly add, that the most fin
ished and completo creations of Art, Sci
ence and Agriculture, productions sup
posed to be the most perfect of their kind,
are always sent to these Exhibitions, to
be examined by the great world. And
to the enquiring mind, to the industrious,
intellectual and refined, to those who
love the South and are interested in her
progress, no more attractive occasions
are now available or within reach, than
the great Fairs of the Cotton States Me
chanics and Agricultural Association of
South Cardinia Bonds.
Telegrams received in this city yester
day from New York (says the Charleston
Courier of the 4th,) state that the new
bonds of tho State had declined to 28
cents. They had been quoted on the
previous pay at 36 cents. The decline,
therefore, which has lately been steady,
was from 10 to 14 ppr cent, in four days.
What may be the immediate cause or
causes of this sudden decline we are una
ble as yet to state, but it is a significant
fact, and worthy the attention of our peo
ple. It will be borne in mind that, un
der the famous " Insurance.Bill," passed
by the Legislature of 1S68?- each insurance
company doing business'within the State
is compelled to deposit as " security" for
the policy-hold?rs ?50,000 in State Bonds.
We understand that many companies
have, in complying with the law in this
respect, deposited bonds of the same new
issue, which are now so rapidly declining.
If this be the case, the " security" to the
policy holders, .with the bonds down to
2S, and still faKing, is not of a very sta
ble character-in fact, it can hardly be
designited as' security. Thc telegram
which announced the decline in bonds,
states that Gm-ernor Scott, Treasurer
Parker and Amptrollcr Neagle are in
New York, bim does not state the object
of their pr?sente.

As general Agents we lake pleasure in presenting this well known and responsi
ble Company to the public and in recommending it as FIRST CLASS in every way.
We micht add much more in this regard, but being interested as its Agents, prefer
to speak through DISINTERESTED PARTIES. Therefore, read and digest the
following notices (among many others) from both Northern and Southern papers as
to the virtues of this Company.
?.un-Columbus, Georgia, January 27, 18G9: "There is no'better Company in the
land A comparison with other corporations of a similar character will convince
all of the superior safety in taking risks with the Brooklyn Life."
Insurance Timen-New York, January, 1869: "The Brooklyn has placed itself in
the van guard of insurance reform, and is tho first Company that has done full
justice to tho insured," ?fcc., Ac.
The Sentinel- Raleigh, N. C. : " This great feature of cash surrender value is an
important improvement that signalizes the era in insurance."
Boston Post-Massachusetts, 1869 : " This plan (guaranteed surrender values) re
moves the sole objection existing to making an application for insurance. Each
policv becomes a niece of negotiable paper, as easily transferred as a Registered
Dispatch-St. Louis, Mo.. January 7, 1869 : " A policy in the Brooklyn Life is
tims worth so much in ready money, Ac. This is the only Life Company that has
carried this excellent feature Into business," <fec., ?fee.
We call especial attention to this distinctive and advantageous feature of guaran
teed surrender value of tho Brooklyn Life, particularly characteristic ; and also to
' the fact that there are no classes in the Brooklyn Life. All fare alike, whether from
the North, South, East or West.
Above all, we direct the public attention to thc fact, that Polices can be obtained
in this Company, owing to its careful management and superior advantages, at
LOWER RATES than in any other Company of EQUAL RANK AND SOLVENCY
in America. _
