It is the last" legal resort of an op?
pressed people. If there be any vitali?
ty left in the constitution of our fathers,
thoe cases will develop it ; and it is
eminently the duty of our people, to
themselves and to their children, to
make this effort is defence of their
liberties. If co"ustirutioual protection
bj clean gone, thc failure of this effort
will si.ow the fact to the world; and in
truth will thc American people (North
as well as South) be treading fast the
road to anarchy. A*..d the sooner this
question is determined the better.
Thc Slble for ibo Blind.
The American Bible Society has at
great expense, prepared the entire Bible,

is twenty dollars, and of the latter
tweurj-eight dvilrra, at which prices
t!>e sets are sold. The New Testament
may be had either in two or four vol?

dollars. The I'.sairus constitute a siugle

Secretary of State Cardoza refuses to de?
liver any more Bonds unless the Trea?
surer informs him for what use they are
Intended-The Question to be Tested
in tlie Court.
[Special Telegram to the Conner.]
COLUMBIA, November SO.
There was a new development of the
bond muddle to day, which will brng
thc matter into conrt. Cardoza, the
Secretary of State, is the custodian of
the State bonds. He hos been in the
habit of deliveiing them to Treasurer
PARKER on demaud. To-day PARKER
sent for more bonds, which Cardoza
refused to deliver up until informed of
the purpose for which they were inten?
ded to be used.
PARKER claims that Cardoza's custody
is merely perfunctory, and that he is
obliged to deliver up on demand. Both
parties agreed to test the matter, and
the question will, therefore, be brought
before the Supreme Conrt. Canicza will
be represented by C. D. MEETON, Esq.,
PARKER by D. H. CHAMBERLAIN,

meantime, refuses to deliver any mor:

lina and elsewhere, and on yesterday
gave the public a sorry picture ot thc
resulta of carpet-bag rule in South
Caroline.What a shameful exhibit it is
By juggling with figures and manipulat?
ing artfully contrived tables, a ring o '
adventurers kept the people of South
Carolina as completely in the dark abou
the finances ol tbe State as though
their fabe returns had been printed ir
San&crit, They prophesied smooth
tilings while the ship was drifting into
the whirlpool of bankruptcy. They lied
about the condition of the treasury re?
gularly, and at fixed intervals, with sll
the system of practiced mountebanks.
Bonds w<re printed in New York by the
ream and sold in Wall street for what
they woiud fetch. A so-called State
ageit, a street broker, handled millions
of th? se bonds', ? it hoot giving a shadow
of responsible security for th? integrity
of i.is dealings. The Governor, Trea?
surer and Comptroller-General vied with
?".?h other in fabricating statements in
teuded for the public eye. while the real
facti* ami figures in the dr*peratt case
were kept in thc secrecy of their own
offices. There seemed to bc no such
thing as mounding bottom in the wild
stream which rushed out of the State
Trea.-ury. An investigating committee,
appointed Ly the frightened Legislature,
came up to New York to look info the
finances ol the Stute, which had no ap?
parent existence outside of Wall street;
and these gentlemen turned their tour
iutoa holiday trip, and relaxed the stern
justice of their intent into a wild junket?
ing ut au up-town hotel.
But the end has come at last. The
fabric of I'alxeiiond hu? collapsed . the

financially bankrupt by mere speculators
in polities. What punishment ?hall
overtake the plunderers who, within a
very few days, have been whitewashing
each other? Certain it is that their
guilt is aj clearly determined as that of
our own municipal banditti, whose
addaoity -o much resembles theirs. We
are heartily ?ick of the sentimental
attempts of "party managers" to cover1
up the corruption, dishonesty and

provisions of the Ku Klux law czpir
