" Wreaking of Private Vengea

A Northern man wiites the wi
truth to the Now York Herald
der date of Newberry, Oct. 2c
The proclamation suspending
writ of habeas carpus in nine couui
of this State has been agrave, thou,
I trust, not fatal blander, oince
arrival in South Carolina I have bi
engaged energetically in coming t
just conclusion of the real conditioi
affairs, and I am compelled to rep
that nothing has occurred which j
tines the grave step taken by t
President. In this county, Newfo
ry, the people seem more stupefi
than indignant, and yet it is easy
se ? that behind their stupefaeti
there is a
FEELING OF EXASPERATION
which may exhibit itself if the ar
trary measures instituted in Unie
Spartanburg and other counties a
carried out in this. That there ha
been troubles in this section of t
State is unquestionably true, bul
am inclined to believe that they ha
been more of a social than of a poli
cal character. Upon the ineonq
tency and dishonesty of the Sta
officials must be charged many of tl
alleged outrages perpetrated by ti
Ku-Klux. It is a fact that in tl
county there Lave been more whi
men murdered by negroes since tl
war euded than negroes by whi
men, and yet only in the cases
Lemuel Lane and Samuel Dunwooc
has ever partial punishment been i
fiicted upon the murderers. I am a
sured by some of the most pro mi ne]
citizens here that where a neg
criminal belonged to the Unie
League it was almost impossible
convict, and, although this is denic
by Radicals, the evidence of the a
quittai of the most
NOTORIOUS NEGRO SCOUNDRELS
in the South by prejudiced negro ji
lies stands on the records of tl
courts for the examination of all. .
is easy to see what made the Ki
Klux possible, when it is known th;
murders, outrages upon women, bar
and house-burning have been of cou
mon occurrence, while but few of til
perpetrators have been punished
and yet it is admitted by the Repu I
licaii officials here that there is n
opposition to the enforcement of th
laws. I asked the military com mane
ant of this place if any case ha
come to his knowledge of the U. ?
marshal being resisted, and he replie
in the negative.; I further inquire
if there was any organization, seer?
or otherwise, in the county mimics
to the government, and he admittei
that he knew ol' none. The Radica
county auditor, who told me tha
there had been i. great many distill
bances, confesse! that he could no
give me the particulars of any singl
one which has occurred since Novena
ber last, and he also admitted tha
'there was no opposition to the enforce
ment of the laws of the State,
have conversed with persons of al
parties, whites and blacks, and I can
not discover any evidence thut tin
slightest resistance has ever beei
made to the State or Federal officiai?
This is the truth-the solemn, hones
truth. A great deal is said by tin
Radicals about what rho whiles wonk
like to do, but of actual overt act
they cannot give particulars. Liver)
rencontre between a negro and ;
white man, growing out of persona
quarrels, is magnified into a Ku-Jvlu;
case. Thus far but one arrest foj
Ku-Kluxism has been made in tin
county, and that was made before tin
proclamation of the President, on tin
cz parle statement of a negro. Tin
accused surrendered without resist
ing the marshal, and protests his in
nocence, In thc upper counties o
Spartanburg, Chester, Union arie
PERFECT REIGN OF TERROR
exists. Bands of soldiers traverse
the country after dark, taking per
sons from their beds at midnight and
hurrying them to jail without ex
plaining the cause of their arrest,
I Nearly three hundred men have been
already arrested in this way. Thc
military authorities, acting, it is said,
under the instructions of Akerman,
who is at Yorkville, refuse to permit
relatives or lawyers to see the priso
ners. Among those arrested are some
of the most prominent citizens of the
counties named, some of them old
men, incapable of acting the part
alleged against them. Hundreds of
iamilies are now moving into Georgia
and North Carolina. Business houses
have been closed, plantations aban
doned, and a general gloom prevails
everywhere. To add to the despera
tion of the whites, thc Radicals have
begun promulgating falsehoods. The
reports of collisions between tho Ku
Klux and United States soldiers are
positively untrue, as no band of armed
men iias yet been met with anywhere.
How much longer I can say ibis,
however, is difficult to predict, as all
accounts agree in representing thc
i feelings in the upper counties HS be
' ing very intense. The wurst feature
! of the whole affair is the fact that
any negro can have as many white
men arrested as he desires by simply
swearing that he saw them with the
Ku-Klux, and thus innocent ruc
likely to be, if they have not al
been, incarcerated in prison,

Attorney General Chamberlain
makes the following reply to certain
questions submitted to him by the
superintendent of education :
OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GEN. 1
COLUMBIA, S. C., Oct. 24, 1871. J
Hon. J. K. Jillson, State Snperinien
dent of Education :
DEAR SIR-Yours of the 12th in
stant is before ma. You inquire, first,
,: Whose duty is it to assess school
I answer that, in my opinion, it is
the duty of the county auditor.
You . ask, second, " Whose duty
is it to collect school district taxes?"
I answer that, in my opinion, it
is the duty of the county treasurer.
You ask third, "If any school dis
trict, at its annual meeting, fails to
raise the tax required by law, but at
a special meeting legally called and
legally assembled does raise such tax,
is such school district, by such ac
tion, entitled to receive i s portion of
the appropriations made by the State
for free common school purposes ?"
I answer that, in my opinion, a
school district, which complied with
the law in holding a special meeting,
and laying the necessary tax for school
purposes, would be entitled to the
same rights and privileges as if this
action had been taken at an annual
meeting, inasmuch as the law express
ly provides for special as well as reg
ular or annual meetings.
You ask fourth, " Is that portion
of the law requiring the withholdinr
from school districts failing to rai?d
the school district tax required by
law, their portion of the State appro
priations (br school purposes, consti
I have carefully considered this
question, and it is my opinion, as at
present advised, that this provision
of the statute of 1871 is in contraven
tion of the provisions of section 5,
article X, of the Constitution of the
State, which provides: First, that an
annual tax shall be collected upon all
property throughout the State for the
support of public schools; and sec
ond, that the school tax shall be dis
tributed among the several school dis
tricts of the State in proportion to
the respective number' of pupils at
tending the public schools I cannot
reach the conclusion that the Legisla
ture are authorized, by way of pen
alty or punishment, for the non-per
formance of certain duties enjoined
by statute, to deprive any school dis
trict of that portion of the school
fund collected by the State, to which
it would be entitled under the pro
visions of the constitution to which I

himself in the Mexican war by his
brilliant conduct on several impor
tant occasion-;. He also served in
the Florida wars. The opening of
the late civil war found him a major
in command at Charleston, where he
held Fort Sumter until it was well
battered down by General Beaure
gard. President Lincoln rewarded
his conduct on that occasion by pro
mpting him to be a brigadier general
of the regular anny. He was soon
compelled, through ill health, to re
linquish active service and retired
into private life. He was subsequent
ly placed upon the retired list, the
Senate on February 24, 1SG5, con
firming President Lincoln's nomina

major general of the regular army
was conferred upon him. General

THE BISMARCK ARMS-A LEGEND
OF THE BISMARCK FAMILY.-At the
front entrance of Prince Bismarck's
Villa in Pomerania, the eye is assist
ed by the inscription of the Bismarck
arms. It consists of a clover half
entwined by three nettle leaves, and
concerning which the following story
is chronicled. Long ago, Gertrude,
of the Bismarcks, a beautiful Pome
ranian princess, was sought in mar
riage by hundreds of suitors from all
parts of th? country, who admired
her as much for her becoming man
ners "as for her exquisite beauty.
These attentions she respectfully de
clined, and was finally betrothed by
consent of her patrons, to a first
cousin ; when from the German ocean
there came a nobleman, a landlord,
accompanied by a hundred horsemen,
seeking her hand in marriage. She
having refused, the Wendish Prince
became so enraged that he called his
horsemen around him and thus spoke :
" I will break this clover leaf with
my own hand. Yes, if there were a
nettle to boot, however much pain it
would give me, I would break it:"
he then and there took the castle by
storm and slew Gertrude's father.
He then breathed freely, and with
malicious eye and exultant smile ap
proched Gertrude's room andthusad
dressed her: " I came to break you,
you golden clover of my heart, you
are no nettle and do not sting; the
clover leaf causes no pain ;' and
with a perfect surety of gaining his
prize embraced the lovely Gertrude.
But oh ! horror, he sank to the'floor
weltering in his own blood with a cry
of mercy on his lips, for the fair
princess had stabbed him to the heart
with a clagger she had concealed
about her person. " Sadly mistaken,"
said she, " I am a nettle when I wish,
and can sting ; and so do nettles ever
sling the one vho would break a
clover leaf of the Bismarcks."
