A Talk with Youmans.
A ttorney-General Youminans, inter
viewed by a Washington Post repor.
ter, said he had come to Washingtor
for the purpose of seeing Attorney
General Devens, and consulting witi
Ron. James Lowndes, an attorney ol
South Carolina; but the former had
gone to Massachusetts and the latter
was.at Newport, and "I am," he con
tinued, "low in tho act of following
Gen. Devens. I called at the White
House to day, and delivered to the
President a personal message from
"Do you propose to consult Gen.
Deveins in regard to the conflict ol
authority between South Carolina
and the United States Government."
"I will lay all The facts of the case
before him. There is a mistakeii
impression, altogeti' in the North
in regard to that case. The people
of South Carolina have no intention
or desire to resist the authority of the
government. The controversy is
purely a judicial one, and the ques
lion at issue is entirely one of juris
diction. The State simply wants the
government to allow the case to be
tried in the State court; then it can
be appealed to the State Supreme
Court, and from that court, it the
United States sees tit, to the United
States Supreme Court. As to wheth
er the United States officials exceed
ed their legal authority or n it, in go
ing to the jail and taking the prison.
era, we do not propose to enter Up.1onI
that question now. We vant tle
question oflurisdiction (ciied firsq
and if it is decided that'ilie caue iist
go to the United States court, I, as 1
State official, Cal not eIte IIe Court
to prosecute. We entend ibat theo
case must properly go to the State
court, because there is no United
States statute to reach the olfence.
This is n4t a qnestion of State's rights
at all-it is purely one of S:atO gov
ernment. But there will not be any
resistance to the governmeilnt; we wil
submit to the dci-ion of the ques jon
whatever it may be. Ini allowing the
prisoniers to be taken bf the Unit'ed
St ates officials, t he jailor obey ed Gov.
Hampton's instruct ions, lie direc

.and not to offer any resistance if the
government officers sought to take
"Are you going to take Kim ptoni
to South Carolina, General?"
"We will, if there is any law tc
authorize it, or I h~ad better say i:
there is not a law to prevent it."
"What do you want with him?"
"Hie knows all about the fraude
that were perpetrated in the Stat(
and we must have bim as a wit nese
in order to prosecute. dhe rascal.
The policy of the State is not to pros
ecute the small thieves, but to punish
the big ones whl got the larger shar<
of the plunder. In these prosecu
tions there will be no persecution.
So far there has been only three con
victions, anid a lenient course hat
been pursued towards the parties.
T he accused persons will be givet
every) facility to defend thiemselvcs.'
Geni. Youmnans stated that thle poli
-cy of allowing the inoDonslince t(
come in and plead guilty and ther
release them on prIom1ise of good b~e
havior originated with Governoi
Hampton. Said lhe: "A Norther,
gentleman asked me to day why th<
people of South Carolina worshipipec

In the course of the debate on the
approl-riation bill during the recent
session of Congress, Col. D. Wjyatt
I do not know that I can enlighten
F this body at all, but I ask the privi
lege of saying a few words.
I am a representative of an agri
cultural comm unity; and a great deal
has been sald here to day about as
sisting the laborilng clases. I have
never yet heard one word expressed
to show me that if we appropriate for
this purpose the entire sinking fund
of $35,000,000, and double it, that
these very classes will not come hbre
next year and ask for as many mil
lion dollars more. I believe in help,
ing the people, but I do not believe
in helping them to day and letting
them starve to-morrow.
If.any gentleman on this floor will
present a constitutional method by
which we can, at the public expense,
disperse the crowds that now concen.
trate in'the cities and scatter them in
the agricultural portions of the coun,
try, I shall be glad to vote for any
such plan. My State to day bolds
out Its hands to hose who are wil
ling to work and says: "We will ei
ploy one million of you," and I have
ofteni card it stated on this floor
thal the; e are only -bout one million
and a half who are idle, not from
choice, but necessity.
Now, suppose we appropriate 35,
000,000 to asist these people, how
long would it be before the last del
lr would be conimed? It there are
one milli.n-idlers to day, and we can
eruploy t hem by making this appr'o
priation, wVOUld t hey not be idle
again at the expiration of thirty five
dayJ? for they would expect at least
a dollar apiece daily for their labor.
I only regret that there ever wa3 a
dollar appropriated by the govern
mncit for electing any (110 of these
public building9. It has been the
cause of onei hal t the idleness of the
people 'f tis ~counItry. W ho is it
that areu idle to dia.) Either mchans,
ics who have been employed by the
government or men who are too lazy
to wor~k, I care nmot of what color. 1In
my section of thle country we have
had none of these public build ing3,
nor do we have men clamoring for
work and cannot g'bt it. .Every man
there who asks for work can get it;
if he is willing to toil for a livelihood
bie can support hi mself. I say to
members of this Congress, and I ask
tihe particular attent-on of the gen
tleman from Pennsylvania, '(Mr.
WVright,) that 'if lhe and other nmney.
ed men will only pay the ex penses of
transporting the idle laboring men
with whom they are acquainted, who
have no money and no work, dlown to
my State I will guarantee that cvery
one of them will be employed and be
able to realize a livelihood anid 10
per cent. clear .over and above the
annual cost of living. It is all dlem1
agogn ery and nonsense to talk about
Congress helping tihe laboring meon
by appropr'iating money fr'om the
public treasury solely for this pars
pose. There is an abundance of
work allover the country if the idle
hands were only willing to do it.
AN AEROLIT.-A singular looking
and irregularly shaped flint rook,
weighing 'about twenty five pounds,
having the appearance of *a molten
mass under intense heat, was picked
up on Ladies' Island, below Beaufort,
Iby some colored persons and taken to
that town. It, is said to have fallen
as a blazing notoror during a late
storm. It is pure flint throughout,
except the outside surface, which has~
a thin coating as if of lava. The Sa..
vannah excursiomists who called at
Croftu's store to inspect it thought it
a great curiosity.

COLUMBIA, Angust 17.-It is con
fidently asserted by those in a posi
tion to know that Kimoton will cer
tainly testify here on one day next
week. While my informant is na
turally reticent upon the subject, he
expresses no apprehension upon that
head, and furthermore informed me
that Niles G. Parker can throw a
degree of light upon the whole inat
ter not given before, and whtich will
have due weight upon the controver
sy now pending. Mr. Parker has
been here for more than a week, and
while his presence in Columbia has
not excited unusual enmment, it is
useless to deny that he will prove an
important factor in the solution of
some V(Iy grave questions with
which the present in vestigati.bn is
closely connected. His presonce
here, con )Ipled with the arrest of' Ki mp
tol, gave rise to the reported requi
sionfor Scott, which has been so au
I can state enpbatically that should
Kimpton be produced, Parker will
also testity, and some of the inside
history of financial matters in the
State several years ago will be
brought out through a channel least
expected. There is no love lost be
tween Chamberlain, KIp 115ton, Pat
terso n and Scott on the one side and
Parker on the other, and the latter in
a conrvei sat i.n with your cor-respond
ent, eviices no longer a disposition
to shoulder thO short comings of a
riig to w 1ose muechmi ations he- feels
hinself a victim.
Mr. Parker riad th0 rCpt of the
coinun ittee on fenuds published in the
Ne w and Cou rier to dtv, and Seemu
ed quite inn:used at some porions of
the tesumt iony-notably that of dtulge
Mackey where in h1e tect ifius that he
was led to iinspect the letter handed
h6i.1 by Khuiptoi ald Patters n to
hinself'(Parkei) because the enve
luve had bucoie tiunocaled. iParker
is evidently determiied to save him
self in this possibly his last chance,
regard less of the cost to his late as
sociate. ie feels that lie hia suffered
p~erSecut ion and obloquy long enough,
and tha lt therec is no fu rthaer neeod of'
the exer'cise of forbeararce.
