David Ramsenr, of York, was arraigned
on an indictment for conspiracy and mor

guilty to the conspiracy and not guilty J
to the murder con nts .
The District Attorney stated that the
defendant had played so small a part in
the murder, that he wonld discontinue
these counts against the defendant; and
the jnry were then sworn, and returned
? verdict of guilty of ' conspiracy. ' Mr.
Corbin then stated, that as all the persons
who were to have been tried had pleaded
guilty, there was no farther business for
the Court, anlnss the Court would jgo on
with the case of The United Staves vs.

Thursday. The ex am ina t ion of the Gov

himself to such a coarse. The defi?<J<m*^'

Judge Bond. It is beyond all reason

The District Attorney. We are in the

twenty witnesses, waiting at the expenso
of the Government.
Judgo Bond. Would you have the
Court do an injustice to save expense?
Mr. Corbin. We don't think that any
injustice can be done in this case.
Mr. Earle, thc Assistant District At

.tating that he expected to prove by the
witnesses, that lhere was great alarm and
trepidation in- York County on account
of thc State militia who had committed
jreat depredations in the County, and re
jailed the apprehension of a war between
the races, and that Jim Williams was a
dangerous man who had threatened to
destroy the whites ; also that the defend

safety and that of his family.

Judge Bond. Tho party is not charged
arith murder, but with conspiracy, and

Murder was committed. If ho was on
rial before the State Court for murder,
his affidavit would not avail him. But
it does in this case. Colonel Hamilton
stated that the witnesses could not possi

subpoena writ would not reach York un--|
il the afternoon of tho 25th, and the case

. About tbe Taxes.
People are naturally asking what is to
be the end of the terrible tangle in which
the Ring have involved the finances of ?
South Carolina. The charges of whole
sale fraud last year in the issue of bonds, I
(says the Charleston Neics) wlu|a giving j
hi bi t of the debt, showing the aggregate
issue of bonds outstanding to be fifteen
or sixteen millions of dollars. Enor
mous and outrageous as it was far less
than many had feared and predicted, and
it was accepted by the Legislature and
by tho public as the most trustworthy
statement that could be had of our bond
.ed debt. The Legislature proceeded to
pass a series of tax measures, which for
harshness, rigor and flagrant injustice
are without a parallel in the biston* of
American legislation. It was urged that
the taxes imposed were absolutely re
quired to pay the current expenses of
the State, and to meet tho interest on the
public debt. The collection of these
taxes is now being enforced under pen
alties that in many cases amount to con
fiscation. Now the people want to know
what is to become of the money ?
It is bootless now to inquire how the
millions already wrung from the tax
payers have been squandered and stolen
by the infamous Ring, whose rule-is the
blighting incubus that rests upon thc
fortunes of South Caro'ina. We must
grapple now with the questions which
concern ourpresent and futuro condition.
The people have a right to know how it
is that while the taxes are pouring in
froin every county in the State, thc claims
of the public creditors of all classes are
contemptuously disregarded. They have
a right to know why th?' boasted cham
pions of popular education are allowing
our public schools to close for want of
the funds for their support. They have
a right to know why the existence of tho
Lunatic Asylum, the Asylum for the
Deaf, Dumb and Blind-ayo, and of thc
.Penitentiary itself-is imporilled by the
saino shameful neglect. They have a
right to know why the Ring, who have
prated so often and so anxiously nbout
sustaining the State credit, should, with
thc whole machinery of government nt
their-control, allow even tho interest "on
the hugo debt, which they themselves
have piled up, to remain, quarter after
quarter, unpaid and "unprovided for.
In plain English, do the Ring intend
to steal and squander the proceeds of the
very taxes which wore laid for the pur
pose of supplying thc deficiencies caused
by their previous extravagance and rob
beries? The next three months will
solve the question. But the Ring will
do wolljrjet to be emboldened, by past
impunity, to venture upon this final*
grab. A plunder d and long-suffering^
people may pay the frightful taxes ; but
they will jealously watch and insist that
the money be legitimately applied. The
day of reckoning for the robbers of the
Ring'may not, after all, be so distant as
?Sf Simple justice demands that such
ruffianly and altogether uncalled-for at
tacks as the one made on Secretary of
State Cardoza at Atlanta a few nights
since should tie discountenanced by all
lovers of law and order, and the person
who made the attack should not go un
punished. Cardoza is known in this
State asa colored r an of unexceptionable
character and unusual intelligence,-one
of the few office-holders, it is said, who
bas not affiliated with the carpet-baggers
in robbing the people of South Carolina
and is entitled to respect and proper
treatment from every one.
pm* The Charleston Courier, of a recent
date; makes the following announce
ment: " Rev. Charles Betts, one of the
oldyt and most distinguished ministers
of the South Carolina Conference, and
well known in Charleston, died sudden
ly at the residence of his son-in-law, Dr.
Edward B. Smith, a few miles below
Marion, S. C., on Tuesday night last. He
had been connected with the Conference
fifty-four year?, and waa about seventy
two years of age.

Thus far one hundred and tyree tickets
have boen sold to passengers for Cincin

The interest in the Cincinnati Conven

unmistakeable signs of being ?ne of the

Vesuvius in Emption. .
ROME, April 26.
At the sitting of tho Chamber of Depu
ties this evening, Prime Minister Lansea
rer-? a dispatch stating that thc eruption
of Vesuvius is increasing and becoming
more Beriou9. Two hundred persons
have been burned by the lava. . Flames
burst from the earth under the feet of
the inhabitants. Torre del Greco is in
danger of destruction. The people are
flying from the town. Temporary pro
vision is made for them by the authori
NAPLES, April 26.
A fresh crater opened in Vesuvius to
day. Ashes and lava foreaten^tht'^7
goods. Thousands are encamped in tue
fields. The ministers have been sum
moned from Rome, and are coming to
make provision for the houseless people.
The bay is covered with boats filled with
spectators. Tho scene is grand and i Ti
bie beyond description. The fiann- at
times shoot up to a great height, and
masses of rock are ejected with earth
quake shocks^ which are distinctly felt
in this city.
NAPLES, April 27.
There is no abatement in eruptions of
Vesuvius. Tlie lava flows down the
mountain sides destroying everything.
No Americans are missing. Explosions
are heard and the flames seen distinctly
from this city. There is a great panic
around the base of the mountain.
LATER.-Thc eruption of Vesuvius
continues with dreadful violence. The
lava has already reached Sebastiana, aud
threatens other towns. Explosions ol
the volcano are constantly heard in this
city. Consternation among the inhabi
tants of -villages and towns which are
threatened with danger increases. It is
asserted that many tourists were sur
rouuded by lava and perished. King
Victor Emanuel hus sent aid to persons
who have been compelled to flee from
their homes and encamp in fields.
Fires bf Vesuvius are slackening. A
new crated opened near Leareigna to-day,
but with every fresh opening now tho
violence of the eruption seems to al?ate.
Yesterday the entire mountain was con
cealed from sight by the smoke which
settled around it. This morning the
heavens were darkened by dense clouds
of smoke and ashes, and a strong wind
carried showers of burning cinders and
old scoria as far as Scafatc and Palermo.
Precaution was taken to flood the Gov
ernment powder magazine at Scafate.
The volume of stream lava near San
Sebastian is sixteen feet deep, and the
village is still in danger. Tho devasta
tion has been terriblo. Thousands of |
acres of acres of cultivated lands have
been overwhelmed by ashes and lava,
and vineyards and farms are buried ont
of sight. The loss of life must have been
heavy, but it is impossible to ascertain
the number of victims.
ST. LOUIS, April 26.
A special from Knnsas City gives the
details of iho brutal murder of Steven
son Cline and ?titro on the railroad train,
near Holden, on Wednesday. After the
train stopped four of the mob mounted
the locomotive and guarded tho engineer

his body thrown by tho side of tho track.
