[Flom the Washington Chronicle,

The election of the notorious
Moses, of South Carolina, to a posi
tion on the bench has caused quite a
flutter, not only among respectable
people who are desirous of seeing
unsoiled ermine, but among the
gamblers and other doubtful charac
ters throughout the Palmetto State,
who also take an active interest in
his elevation for peculiar reasons of
their own. Their glee is likely to
be of slort duration, however, as
Governor Chamberlain is strenuous

L'1E ORDER OF "AMERICAN UNION."
An Alleged Third Term Conspiracy.
The New York herald of Tuesday
ontains what purports be to be a
'nil exposure of the plans, purposes
mnd organization of the "Order of
American Union," of which it assorts
President Grant, Postmaster-Goner
ii Jewell and ex Speakor Blaine are
nembers. The fundamental princi
los of the order or society are
learly defined and asserted in one
>f the printed "synopses" aneilg the
nany al-eady issued by the Sonato
wsupreme body. These principles
read as follows :
"We oppose a division of the
ichool fund for any sectarian pur
poses whatever. In a word, we are
>ledged to maintain our republican
form of government and its institu
bions as inherited from our fathers and
to place all men jointly in a position
to defend themselves against the
iggrossions of Romanisn."
The Herald says the Order was
organized in the year 1867, with the
wvowed purpos to "disfranchise
Roman Catholics, and to provent
them from holding political ofilce."
Its national government is called
the Senate, while the State organi
nations of "governments" are styled
"State Legislatures," and these lat
ter are divided into lodges or subor
dinate organizations, known in the
union as "councils." Candidates
for admission to membership are
subjected to numerous questions,
all showing the anti-Catholic cliarac
tor of this new political organization,
after which the candidate is blind
folded and required to repeat the
following, uplifted hands : "To
perpetuate the American Union ; to
oppose the power of the Church of
Rome ; to sustain our freo, unsecta
rian schools ; to oppose appropria
tion of public money for sectarian
purposes ; to oppose the the election
of Papists to political office-to all
of which I pledge my life, my for
tune and my sacred honor. So help
me God."
The total membership throughout
the country at present is said to be
76,811. The largest number in any
ono tato is found in the State of
New York, the strength of the order
being 21,217. Now York State has
forty-three councils; Ohio, twenty
one ; New Jersey, nineteen ; Iilinois,
sixteen ; 1'eunsylvailia, thirteen;
Connecticut, seven ; Maine, four ;
Vermont, two ; New aimpshiro,
three , California, five ; Michigan,
seven, and the order is increasing
rapidly in every State. Hundreds are
being initiated every day.
The national deputy, State or
county deputies can initiate any
person privately, and secretly assign
them to a council. This is done tt

Things We Have Noticed.
We have noticed, in the beginning
of every year, that the farmers are
going to plant more grain and
loss cotton. In the fall we notice
that there has been just about as
much grain planted as there was the
year hofore.
We have noticed overy year that
the farmers are going to make pro
visions eoW11ugh1 to supply them
solves ; but notwithstanding this,
we notice that about the same nui
bor are engagod in hauling provis
ions out of the towns, which they
buy at ruinous prices
We notice overy :year that the
country in next year going to be
self supporting ; but when next
year cones it is* pain fully evidont
that the country gets its support
from the far West.
We are told overy Spring and
Summar by the farmors : "Publish
in your paper that the cotton crop
is going to be a failure," and when
we smile incredulously, they toll us
of the caterpillar, the boll-worm, the
drouth, the rust, the had stand, and
numerous other indutbitable iroofs
that the crop must turn out a fail
ure. We su.;pect at the time that
they are trying to crbato an im
pression through the- papers that
the crop will b) small, so as to in
dice a ris in the price. But how
futile is their effort. The price of
cotton is never affected by news
paper reports, and it always stays
dlown. At the end of each year we
notice that the crop reaclhes away
along toward 4,000,000 bales, and
the farmers 'soil for less than it
costs.
We notico that the farmers try
every means--except the right one
-to. raise the price of cotton.
We notice that the policy of
raising a great deal of cotton and
very .little provisions causes the
country to languish, and spread
bankruptcy throughout the land.
We notice that some of the
Grangers are wofully false to their
profession of raising their own
provisions and buying for cash ;
and we believe that they are, the
truest Grangers who live at home
and do net have store accounts.
We notice that fariners get more
advice than any other class of men,
and apparently pay loss attention to
it. But we notice that the advice
still !lows on, the supply see-us in
exhaustible ; and as we belwlovo it
is good, we propose to continue to
do our share as long as the types
hold out to print it.-Te Family

COMBAT WITH A CATAMOUNT.
Fatal Fight of an Old Hunter with a,
Huge Catamount.
A correspondent descbos theo t -or
riblo fate of Jackson Fraily, a
veteran old Pennsylvania' hunter,
who started out from Martinsville
on Wednosday of last. week with
two comrados on a hunting expedi
tion. The Welch Mountain in the
vicinity is heavily, timbered and
surrounded by great swamps And
ravines, in which boars, catamounts
and other wild animals are plenty.
The hunters did not return on Wed
nesday night, nor was anything
heard of them the next night, and
their friends determined to do
stpatcl searchers to had them. On
Friday morning twenty stalwart
woodsmen stalrtod to search for the
missing mop. At about 10 o'clock
the body of Fraily was found nearly
covered ip a in snlow drift near the
foot of the nountabbi,. His clothing
was torn off from his, throat to his
knees, fnd his . face, Beck, .breast
and abdomen were terribly laceetatod
seeniingly by the' eltWs er teeth of
a wild animal. Nothing : further
was found until ithe party ro bed
Tamarack. swamp.. While going
about the swamp one of the men
found Frailoy's rifle -sta ding
against a tree. Both' birrels were
empty. A short distance to the'
right, in a hollow, was ,ho .body - of
an enormous catanomint. It was
covered with woinds, one being
made by'a rifle ball, nmd the rest
plainly by a knife. The snow hav
ing been scraped away about the
tree against which -the rifle stood,
the hunter's knife, ka long clasp
knife with a buckhorn handle, and
pieces of his clothing were found.
it was evident that there had boen
a fearful struggle, for the .,ground
was covered with blood for.. several
feet around, and the underbi-ush
was bloody and broken. The search
was resumed, and the othei' two
missing hiunters were at last dis
covered alive and well, though they
knew nothing of the fte of Fraily
until now, ho having separated from
themi on the fiu'st day out." Fraily
was known throughout . Pennsyl
vania as the Nimrod of the State.
He had followed hunting and trap
