OUR WASHINGTON LOTER.
WASHINGTON, L>. G., Dec 1218?1.
Senator Statiner, with either a lauda?
ble desire to benefit the people of the
country, or to strike Gen. Grant in a
vital spot, introduced his bill to abo1* \
the office of Commissioner of Inter il
, Revence and to reduce t?ranos. Sena?
tor Sherman's objection against refer?
ring it to tbe Finance Committee showed
that the measure ia not very palatable
to the Grautites. Senator Thurman,
came to Sumner's rescue and tbe bill
was referred. 1 he last conundrum now
is, what ?ill become of it f It viii
never see daylight, or if so, will be
strangled in its infancy. Grant did not
mean that any Radical should take bis
recommendations fur retrenchment liter?
ally, hence such a practical effort as
this mast be promptly checked.
The administration, in order to acquire
a reputation for honesty, at a cheap rate,
put forward the bland blonde Cockling
to call for an investigation into the
Hodge defalcation, but this virtuous
dodge would not work, for Senator
Trumbull proposed a resolution to in?
quire into all the stealing which was
going on. Mr. Trumbull was very
severe on the present condition of affairs.
Grant's tools took ground against tbe
proposed inquiry, and as the debate was
growing very warm and damaging to
the defenders of a corrupt administra?
tion, which shunned investigation into
its acts, a motion was made to go into
executive session, which was carried bj
a vote of 31 ajes to 26 noes. A few
more debates as damaging as this one,
and thc administration will have nothing
but bayonets, carpet baggers and eifice
holders to support it, that is if the peo?
ple read and think. That the resolution
will be voted down, can be determined
bj the action of the House voting duwo
Fernando Wood's resolution jesterdaj,
in which he wished to place the Radi?
cals on the record for retrenchment and
reform as announced in the President's
message, but they all voted against being
so placid, and the Senate will follow
The very latest is that Georgia loses a
cabinet officer and Oregon gains one.
Akerman goes out and Williams-ex
Senator-comes in. The Legal tender
cases will soon be decided. There will
be at least five written opinions, quite
R. W. Taylor writes to the Commis?
sioner of Internal llevenuc that upon
consultation with Secretary Boutwelluit
bas been decided to refond the tax paid
by judges of the State courts on the
salaries received by them from their
respective State treasuries." This is io
accordance wirb the decision of the Su?
preme Court in the case of Day vs.
. From what I can glean respecting the
Ohio senatorship, it seems that John
Sherman will not be returned to thc
Senate. His brother Rads canuot agree
upon him. Senator Shermau does not
drscrve such treatment, as he has made
great sacrifices for his party. From
being a half fair seri of a conservative,
he has stooped very low and wallowed
in the mire of party politics, being most
bitter in his per.-ccutions of the South
and truckling to the bidding of his
master io the While House; and now
to he thrown overboard is enough to
male him loso all faith in human, or
rather Radical, nature. Bingham, "the
woman hanger," is saidto be ahead for
The Finance Committee, which have
during the sutMtier been engaged ex?
amining the suhj.-cts of tariff and taxa?
tion, have decided to report in favor of
consolidating all taxes on distilled
spirits into one, a tax on the gallon of
about 70 cts. This is in accordance
with Senator Sumner's idea. A uni
form "tax on tobacco will also be recom?
The Way? and Means committee are
large'y io favor of revenue reform, there
being but three protectiooists on that
committee. There is but little doubt
that the} will report a bill revising the
tariff and the internal revenue law at au
early day. This being in direct conflict
with the priocipies of the Radical party,
the question arises, have they stolen
the Democratic thunder for partvpurpo
ses, or have they leatned something
from tie events of the past few years?
They are su?*h late converts to our *
principles, in thi* respect, that even did
I not know their previous bad character,
I should doubt their since! ?fy. The

reported to the Senate by one majority
This bill grants amnesty to all persons
except those who were in the army,
navy or Congress of the United States
Qud quit the same to join the Confeder
acy. A bill giving amnesty to ail
would be a grateful christmas present to
the South, and would savor of ?encrosi
ty; but alas! is there auch a thing as

A Remarkable Boy Mechanic.
We have on our table a complete j
working model of a horizontal stean
engrfee with tubular boiler of the loco-1
motive type, separate from the boile
the workmanship of which would co
eredit to an experienced mechanic j
Every part is stated to have been mace i
by Master C. T. Mason ( at the age of
fourteen years), Sumter, S. C. Notbirg j
is omitted, even a miniature steam ga<e
being supplied. Master Mason will, if
he continues to progress, be a mast sr
mechanic at aa age when boya in gener?
al bave scarcely an idea beyond tops ?nd
marbles. He will please accept o :r
thanks for sending bis engine for our
inspection,and oar predictions that, if lie j
lives, he will occupy a distinguish rd
place among the engineers of thia coon?
try. Few men could beat the execution
displayed in bis working miniature
engine, which, in its details, indicate ia
knowledge of steam and the laws of no?
tion roost remarkable in such a you h.
Let Master Mason apply himself dili?
gently to tbe stody of mathematics,
mechanics, and drawing, and there tan
be no doubt of his future.. We may add
that this young mechanic received a
silver medal as a first premium on this
model, from the Agricultural and Me?
chanicsl Society of South Carolina at its
fair of 1869.-Scientific American, Nov.

Tbe Ka-Kl ax Trials.
The trial of ROBERT HATES MITCH?
ELL, of York County, before the U. S.
Court at Columbia, now in progress, has
elicited general and unabated interest,
aod been attended, from day to day, by
large crowds. The evidence closed on
Friday last, and the pleading? began on
Saturday, Attorney Geo. CHAMBERLAIN
leading off on the psrtof tbe prosecu?
The evidence addueedby the defence
was very full and strong, going to F how
the terror that reigned io the np country
in consequence of the threats of leading
radica! negroes to burn and kill. It was
abundantly proven that JIM WILLIAMS,
(the negro Scott-militia captain,) whose
hanging is involved in the pending case,
frequently declared, just previous to bis
death, that he would "kill from the
cradle to the grave," "ko klux women
and children," and "burn np the country
io every direction " That he had as
mach right to arrest and make war as
Sherman-that Scott would turn Uh the
money, and that be would rule tbe
country or destroy it.
On the other hand, the whole Ki
Klux organization of York has beeo
thoroughly unveiled-names of shiefs
and members, dates of initiation, raids,
&c, and who composed and led .hem,
being all alleged-with what arno mt of
truthfulness, of course, we do not under?
take to *ay.
Tbe verdict of the Jory, rendered on
Monday, was guilty under the cccond
count- conspiracy against Jim Williams.
Notice of a motion io arrest of judgment
was given by Mr. Stauberry.
"A shipper," on another column, in
noticing the competition io freights be?
tween Charleston and Camden, naturally
brings np the situation of Sumter, io
this connection-without competition.
And the matter should doubtless be
kept before the public mind. It would
seem that there is want of energy, and
enterprise and oommeroial progress
somewhere : that Charleston should not
be io s position to compete for tbe large
carryiog and other business of thia
region. The South Carolina Central
seems to linger in the womb of time, and
we hear ofuo other "break," which a pent
up commercial bit nat ion such as this,
