THE SAVANNAH VAIXJEY RAILROAD.
The report of Maj. T. B. Lee, Chief
Engineer of the Savannah Railroad, will
be submitted to the Board of Directors
on Friday next, and if it proves as fa?
vorable as is anticipated, it is expected
that steps will be taken to begin the lo?
cation and construction of the Road im?
mediately. It will take three years to
complete the grading to Dorn's Mine, if
the money has to be paid down, but con?
tracts may be let out and the work done
with payments to be afterwards made, so
that the grading will probably be com?
pleted within a much shorter time.?
This doue, the Road ought to be
completed to Aiken, thus giving us
an independent line connecting with
Charleston over the South Carolina Rail?
road, with Augusta over the Greenwood
& Augusta Railroad, the South Carolina
Railroad and the Charlotte, Columbia &
Augusta Railroad, and with points North
over the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta
and the South Carolina Railroads. So
far as the interests of the town of An?
derson are concerned, this is decidedly a
better terminus than Dorn's Mine, and
so far as Charleston is affected, it is the
only line which can carry the trade of
the Savannah Valley to our own seaport.
The building of this road will do much
to avert the probable injury to the trade
of Charleston from the completion of the
Greenwood & Augusta Road. The Sa?
vannah Valley Railroad is, therefore, a
line of great importance to the western
side of the State, and if the Blue Ridge
is ever built, of which we have not de?
spaired, it will become a very profitable
line of road. We hope harmony will
prevail in the enterprise, and that it will
be pushed to speedy completion.
GEN. C; All FIELD'S LETTER.
It has become a custom of the country
for candidates nominated for the Presi?
dency to present their formal acceptance
of the nomination in a letter enuncia?
ting their views upon the most important
questions of the day. In obedience to
this custom Gen. Garfield has published
his formal acceptance of the Republican
nomination, which defines, to a certain
extent, his position upon the current
topics of the day. To say that the letter
is a weak one would be to underestimate
its probable value in the coining canvass,
for it is skilfully penued to catch the
votes of every class of persons from whom
the Republicans can naturally expect to
obtain votes in this canvass; but not?
withstanding this, the letter isau unhap?
py document for the Republicans. It
contradicts the record of its candidate,
and that, too, over his own signature.
Gen. Garfield has felt the popular pulse,
and finds the sentiment to be overwhel?
ming on the Pacific coast that the "Chi?
nese must go," and therefore Gen. Gar?
field, the candidate, says they must go,
although Gen. Garfield, the member
of Congress from Ohio, voted against
the act limiting steamers on the Pacific
coming from China to fifteen Chinese
passengers, and then voted to sustain the
President's veto after the bill bad passed.
Thus he has changed his position upon
thiri question for the purpose of obtain?
ing votes, which shows him to be in
stable, vascillating and designing. He,
however, is entitled to such credit as is
due a bold statement of position, for he
is not disposed to conceal what he pre?
tends to be his sentiments. He is in
favor of perpetuating the sectional issue
And of continuing the centralization of
the government. He advocates a pro?
tective tariff, and thus puts himself in
opposition to the mercantile theories of
the West. There are some subjects, how?
ever, that he has left untouched, about
which we would like to have heard his
statement. Those subjects are the salary
grab, the DeGoiyer pavement contract,
and the Credit Mobilier fraud. Per?
haps, however, his silence is the best
course he could pursue in the mailer, for
it never does any good to talk of crimes
of which one 10 guilty, though pretend?
ing innocence. Taking the whole mat?
ter into consideration we expect Gen.
Garfield has written about as good a
letter as be could have done. He will
get beaten as the case now stands. He
would have been beaten had he written
any other letter.
COL. CASH GIVES BAIL.
Associate Justice Mclver has granted
Col. E. B. C. Cash bail in the sum of
three thousand dollars for his appearance
at the Darlington Court to stand his trial
on the charge of murder for the recent
killing of Col. Shannon. The amount
of bail required indicates that Judge
Mclver docs not consider tbe case a
serious one, and looks really as if the
judiciary of the State is disposed to look
with leniency upon the crime of murder,
if it is cloaked under the guise of duel?
ling. Of course a Judge of the Supreme
Court is high authority, but it does seem
to us that the case against Col. Cash is
not one in which bail in any sum is ad?
missible, lie went upon the field ivith
the deliberate purpose aud formed design
of killing dl. Shannon, after having
expressed the most intense malice. If
there was any ingredient of murder lack?
ing in this case, we do not know what it
was. The midnight assassin does his
work more cowardly, but not more surely
and effectively than Col. Cash did his,
and Judge Mclver would have taken
high ground and done much towards in?
culcating a healthy moral sentiment by
refusing bail in this case. We have no
doubt the Judge was here, as in the Irby
case, actuated by considerations of mercy
and sympathy, but it is a public misfor?
tune for him to have been so. The trial
of this case is to settle a most important
principle, and, therefore, the duties of
the judiciary in passing upon it rise far
higher than even the application of the
law to a particular case, for generally it
is a matter of comparatively little conse?
quence as to the conviction or acquittal
of a criminal. In this case, however,
the result is to decide whether murder
can be legalized by the rules of the so
called "Code of Honor." If Col. Cash
Is acquitted it can be. If he is convicted
it cannot. It is, therefore, exceedingly
important for the law to be fairly and
impartially administered without favor,
fear or affection.
THE CENSUS ACT.
One of the most important provisions
of tbe Census Act is the following :
"That Section 9 of the Act aforesaid
be, and the same is hereby so amended
as to require each enumerator, immedi?
ately after completing the enumeration
of the population of his district, and be?
fore forwarding the same to the Super?
visor, to make and file in the office of the
Clerk of the County Court or in the office
of the court or board administering the
affairs of tbe County to which bis district
belongs a list of the names, with ages,
sex and color, of all persons enumerated
by him, which he shall certify to be true,
and for which he shall be paid at the
rate of ten cents for each one hundred
'This is a very important provision, and
we are gratified to know that it has been
complied with in this County. This
census report for the County will be a
valuable record for reference in future
years, and, if recorded hereafter every
ten years, will afford a considerable
amount of interesting personal history of
Dr. Tanner, the New York faster, be?
gan his twenty-third day at noon on
Tuesday, and seemed in good condition.
If his fasting is genuiue he has already
passed the supposed limit of human en?
durance, and his effort becomes one of
very great interest to the scientific world.
One peculiarity about the experiment is,
that since Dr. Tanner resumed the U8e of
water, which he did about the ninth day,
he has actually regained some of the
flesh he previously lost. The New York
Herald gives what appears to be the cor?
rect theory about this, in the fact that the
human body is composed of eighty per
cent, of water, and the supply of this in?
gredient has resulted in the gain The
fast is now more than half over, and
physicians say they see no reason why
he should not hold out for the remaining
The re-nomination of Governor Col
quitt seems to be very sure now upon the
second ballot in tbe Convention soon to
be held in Georgia, and the people of
that State are to be congratulated upon
the prospect. Gov. Colquitt is an able
and true man, of whom the State ought
to be proud. His strength in this can?
vass is to a certain extent indicative of
the popular feeling in Georgia over the
appointment of ex-Gov. Joseph E.
Brown to the Senate, and shows that
Brown is likely to be re-elected to the
Senate this Fall. Such an end will
prove very advantageous to the people
of Georgia, for they can find no abler or
purer man to represent them in the Sen?
ate, the clamor and prejudice of many
to the contrary notwithstanding.
The countiug of the bills of the bank
of the State proven before Commissioner
Coit has been finished, and the result
shows that about eighteen thousand dol?
lars of bills were abstracted, which in?
volves a liability of the State for nine
thousand dollars, unless some of these
bills can be recovered before they are
put on the market, a thing which is not
likely to occur. The trial of Laughlin
began on last Monday, and at last ac?
counts his counsel were arguing a motion
to continue the case. Whether the case
be continued or not, the officers of the
State will closely pursue the criminal,
and he will certainly suffer for his crime.
Chastine Cox, the colored man who
murdered Mrs. Hull in New York about
fifteen months ago, was hanged on last
Friday. The colored citizens of the
State arc indignant against Gov. Cornell
because be reprieved Balbo, an Italian,
who was to have hung on the same day,
and refused to reprieve Cox. It looks
as though the Republican Governor of
New York makes a distinction between
white and colored criminals. In this
case we expect his mistake was not in
letting Cox hang but in reprieving
The Republican papers vehemently
assert that Gen. Garfield will be elected
President this Fall. This is all very
well and natural, as these assertions are
easily made, and cost nothing. It is a
fact worth recollecting, however, that
the Republican sportsmen and betting
men take good care not to put up any
money on his election. Straws show
which way the wind blows.
THE PRESS EXCURSION.
Interesting Sights in Cincinnati,
In our notes upon the press excursion
wo had arrived in the city of Cincinnati,
where we found everything in the way
of habitations densely packed by the
vast number of visitors who had flocked
to that city to be present at the Demo?
cratic Inational Convention. The hotels
and restaurants and private houses were
alike over filled, and men who were un?
fortunate enough to have arrived with?
out securing accommodations in advance
were in no enviable condition. Some?
times one could hear such persons bo
seeching hotel keepers to make room for
them, in several instances offering as
high as twejty-fivo dollars per day for
board without securing it. This state of
things had a tendency to satisfy the
members of our party with a location
that had been engaged for us in advance
in private houses, which at oilier times
would not have been acceptable, for there
were in some of the rooms from eight to
fifteen persons, assigned according to the
size of the rooms. On the night of our
arrival an entertainment was given to
the South Carolina delegation in the Con?
vention by Mr. Means and other gentle?
men of Ohio at the Highland House,
which was splendidly lighted up, and
where a most elegant and extensive ban?
quet had been prepared. Speeches were
made by Speaker Randall, Gov. Hamp?
ton and numerous other gentlemen, in?
cluding several of the South Carolina
delegates. At tbe conclusion of the
speaking there was a very brilliant dis?
play of fire-works in all colors, and a
discharge of roman candles in red, blue,
green and other bright colors, so ar?
ranged as to form the letters and words
"South Carolina and Ohio." The occa?
sion is described by those present as one
of great pleasure and magnificence. The
day after our arrival we began the work
which is an extensive but dingy, smoky
and dirty city, some eight or ten miles
long and two to five miles wide, situated
in a little basin on the right bank of the
Ohio River, and surrounded by high
hills, particularly so on the Northern
and Western sides. In this city there are
very many manufactories, which are
propelled by steam produced by the con?
sumption of coal, the dust from which
seems to have an oily or greasy quality,
which makes it stick to everything it
touches and soak in, so as to permanent?
ly remain, rendering it very troublesome
to even get it off of the human skin. It
is, therefore, not uncommon to pass men
upon the streets with unmistakable ap?
pearances of smut and smoke upon their
faces. The greatest inconvenience we
experienced, however, was from the
water, which is limestone in its char?
acter, and taken without feltering from
the Ohio River, which is a very muddy
stream. The water from Rocky or
Savannah River would have been de?
lightful as compared to it, and yet the
citizens of the great city of Cincinnati
get no other water supply. They coax it
down with quantities of ice when they
drink, but lager beer is the natural bev?
erage of Cincinnati, and we have no
doubt that hundreds of persons may be
found who rarely, if ever, take a drink
of water, and although wo do not believe
in the use of any spirituous or malt
liquors, yet after Boeing the water these
people would have to drink, we cannot
help entertaining a very charitable feel?
ing for the tendency to drink lager beer
in Cincinnati. Alter spending the morn?
ing of Tuesday in the Convention, we
took dinner, and went in tho afternoon
where there is the largest collection of
animals and fowls in the United States.
The trip from tho city to these gardens is
one of very great interest, beginning
with the incline plane railroad, which,
by a system of cogs and pullies carries a
large car or platform upon which a street
car, horses and passengers are contained
up a hill some two hundred feet high,
from which is presented a most beautiful
view of the city stretched out in the
plains below. Then the ride through the
Walnut Hills presents the view of many
beautiful lawns and handsome resi?
dences. Tho whole drive from tho in?
cline plane to the Gardens is like a beau?
tiful park built up with handsome
houses, the lawns being sodded with blue
grass, growing to perfection, and inter?
spersed with roses and the rarest and
most lovely exotics. At the Garden an
admission of twenty-five cents each was
paid, and our party of six began the
work of "seeing the animals" in a sys?
tematic way. Tho Garden is finely sit?
uated on au undulating tract of laud,
with numerous handsome shade trees
and a thorough sod of blue grass. It is,
indeed, very beautiful, but the natural
attractions of tho Garden are very small
compared with tho interest which at?
taches to its inhabitants. To describe all
of the uncommon animals which have
been collected here would be a task be?
yond our limit. It was a notablo feature
that tho groator portion of these animals
appeared healthy and possessed of very
great energy and spirit, which is not
usually found in them when in a state of
captivity. This is duo to the great skill
and attention given to adapting their
accommodations to their natural wants,
and hence the white Polar bears, with
their large pool of water kept cool by ice
in the hottest weather, gave no indication
of suffering from boat, but wore contin?
ually swimming and playing about in a
quite cheerful manner, affording great
pleasure to the visitors; and tho Walrus,
usually inactive and slothful in captivity,
was swimming and lashing the water in
his pool with all of the life which he
would possess in his nativo creeks and
ba3*ous. So, too, the ostrich was march?
ing up and dowu his enclosure as appa?
rently contented and proud as he could
have been upon tho plains of Arabia.
Swans, ducks, geese and various other
water fowls were swimming upon the
lakes, and in largo cages birds of numer?
ous and rare kinds wore perching or
playing in apparent glee. Tho monkeys,
too, had a full representation, having a
houso to themselves, in which some fif?
teen or twenty species were gathered in
different apartments, and wore contin?
ually performing their antics. After
watching tho conduct and appoarance of
tho inmates of this house, one is strongly
impressed with the plausibility, at least,
of Darwin's theory, that they are tho
origin of man. Tho collection of hyenas,
lions, leopards and kindrod animals was
likewise very fine. Tho cost of this Gar?
den has boon about three hundred thou?
sand dollars, but It really represents a
great deal more, for many of the most
valuable animals and fowls have been
presonted to tho Association, so that its
value is probably not less than half a
million dollars. It is a great resort, and
would afford a pleasant pastime as
often as one may visit it.
On Wednesday morning Mr. J. F.
Blackburne, as tho roproscntative of the
Cincinnati Southern Railroad, came by
appointment for the members of tho As?
sociation with ten carriages, drawn by
handsome white horses, to give us
X DRIVE OVER TIIE CITY.
Wo started with Gov. Simpson, Gen. Ha
good, Col. Boattio and Mr. Blackburno
in tbe front carriage. The first place wc
visited was John Kaufman's
LAGER BEER BREWERY,
where the process of manufacturing beer
was investigated by the whole party, and
its quality was testified to be excellent
by about one-fourth of the party. From
tho fermenting room and the boilers,
where the temperature is uniformly 80 to
90 degrees, we wont down some sixty
feet under ground to the storo-room,
where large quantities of ice are kept, so
that tho temperature is steadily kept
down to 30 to 32 degrees, foi tho purpose
of preserving the beer which is stored
there. This establishment manufactures
about 100,000 gallons of beer per annum,
and yet it is one of tho smallest of about
a dozen breweries in the city. It is not
strange, therefore, that Cincinnati has
become noted for its lager trade, nor is it
remarkable that at nearly every step
you find the sign "Lager Boer" hung out,
announcing that this beverage can bo
obtained -within. Nearly every one
drinks beor in Cincinnati?men, ladies
and children of all sizes. It said to be
very hoalthy, and from the population of
the Queen City wo would venture tho as?
sertion, if it had not previously been es?
tablished as a fact, that lager is .a flesh
giving beverage. After our trip through
the brewery we continued our ride, stop?
ping at the inclino plane at
THE HIGHLAND HOUSE
long enough to get our carriages carried
up. Here we were treated to refresh?
ments by our host, and enjoyed the
scenery rea- i. ig far up and down the
Ohio River, and overlooking the city
which lay some three hundred feet be?
low. This house is a public resort, where
refreshments are kept, and where every
facility for the enjoyment of parties is
afforded, from extensive dancing floors
to tho luxuries of the table. From this
point we drove through Eden Park,
Avondale and. tho Walnut Hills to tho
Zoological Gardens, whore a sumptuous
dinner had been prepared for us as the
guests of the Cincinnati Southern Rail?
road, tho abundant appreciation of which
was testified to by the hearty manner in
which all present partook of tho viands
which loaded down tho table. From this
point we drove through Bumot Woods
Park, a beautifully sloping and densely
shaded stretch of two or three miles, and
continued our ride on to Clifton, the
most aristocratic and wealthy part of the
suburbs of Cincinnati. Here the princes
of fortune and rulers of society reside in
extreme magnificence and repose. By
the terms of the very charter of the city
no business or manufacturing establish?
ment can bo carried on in this section, so
that none of tho bustle or smoke or dirt
of the city can come about them. It is
really a very magnificent and beautiful
place. From this point we drove to tbe
race-course, which is beautifully leveled
and prepared for trotting or running.
Next we went to the
SPRINO OROVE CE2JETERY,
which, though far inferior to Greenwood
or to Hollywood in Richmond, is yet
very handsome and beautiful. There
have been about 34,000 interments in it,
and very imposing monuments mark the
resting places of many of the* dead.
Among these the towering and highly
polished granite column which stands
silent sentinel above the grave of old
John Robinson, of circus fame. He
made a considerable fortune by his
shows, and a very handsome monument
has been erected to bis memory out of
his abundant means. This cemetery
occupies 600 acres, and tho Association
having control of it was incorporated in
1845. It is, therefore, a monument to the
public spirit and taste of tho citizens of
Cincinnati. On our road back to the cicy
wo stopped at the factory of
LOUIS COOK <t CO.,
who are among the largest manufactories
of carriages, buggies, &c, in the United
States- Tho factory is an extensive one,
and turns out very handsome work in
large quantities. Wo then returned
home, having spent a most pleasant day,
for which we were indebted alike to Mr.
Blackburne and tho Cincinnati Southern
The next day wo were occupied princi?
pally with the excitement and rejoicing
over the action of the Democratic Con?
vention, which wo have heretofore
spoken of. The whole city was ablaze
with enthusiasm, and a grand rally and
ratification occupied tho greater portion
of the night.
The following day tho members of tho
Press Association presented to Mr.
Blackburne a handsome gold-headed
cane as a testimonial of their apprecia?
tion of his personal attentions to us.
The presentation was made by President
Crews in an appropriate speech, and hap?
pily responded to by Mr. Blackburne,
after w inch short speeches were made by
Col. Hoyt, Gen. Humph ill, Col. Farrow
Tho people of Cincinnati are hospitable,
intelligent and energetic. They are prin?
cipally Republicans, and have very little
idea of the real condition of things in
the South. Occasionally you wili meet
onoofthein who has been down South
and he will frankly admit that he wishes
to see the Democrats retain possession
of tho State governments in the South,
but wants tho Republicans to retain the
National government, becauso he thinks
it safer for the Union, implying that
there might be some danger to tho coun?
try if the "rebels" became influential in
the national administration; but by far
the greater number think the condition
ofthings down here is extremely lawless.
We had intelligent men say to us that
they had capital which they would in?
vest do?vn South if it was safe, and if
they could eutertain their political views
withont proscription, and siemod really
suprised when assured that South Caro?
lina, the leader in Secession, was as or?
derly and quietasOhio or Massachusetts.
The closer connection between the
South and West will rapidly dissipate
this herosy of opinion, and at no distant
day we may confidently look for an in?
flux of Western capital and energy,
which will greatly develop our country,
and carry the South ahead of any other
soction of tho Union in resources and
material development. We have advan?
tages of climate, water and health, which
all their money cannot buy, and which
are destined to render the South, and
particularly this section of it, the most
desirable and nourishing section of the

THE GREENVILLE RAILROAD.
No Further Proceedings for Twenty Days?
Columbia, July 15.
The expectation was that the first
instalment of the purchase money for the
sale of the Greenville and Columbia
Railroad, due and payable here under
the terms of sale to-day, would be made
in accordance with those terms, but dur?
ing the forenoon a telegram was received
by Master N. B. Barnwell informing him
that Judge Hudson had granted an order
postponing all proceedings in the case
for twenty days. A petition has been
filed by the attorneys of W. P. Glide, T.
M. Logan and Joseph Bryan, in which
tbey allege that as a committee represent?
ing holders of a large majority ofsecoud
mortgage bonds of the Greenville & Col?
umbia Railroad, they attended the sale in
April last and bid on said property to the
amount of ?3,393,000, at which price
they claim the road was knocked down
to them, and that they tendered the $20,
000 required by the terras of the sale to
be paid in cash. The second allega?
tion is that a protest was entered against
the bidding being reopened after it was
thought to have been closed. The third
allegation is that during the progress of
the bidding several messages were re?
ceived from the party bidding against
them proposing that he would cease
bidding for a money consideration,
which proposition they refused to con?
sider. The fourth allegation is that a
number of holders of se .ond mortgage
bonds refused, after invitation, to unite
with the petitioners for the protection of
their interests, conspiring together to run
up the price of the property in order that
they might secure larger dividends on
their bonds, without the intention or
ability to comply with the terms of the
sale or to purchase the road. To accom?
plish said purpose parties notoriously
insolvent were employed to appear as
bidders at the sale. The fifth allegation
states that parties who believed them?
selves interested in having the road
bring a higher price induced an irre?
sponsible party to be present at the sale
as a bidder.
They claim that no bona fide bid ex?
ceeding $2,393,600 was made, and that,
after their names had been entered as the
purchasers aud $20,000 paid to the
Master, the Master had no authority
to annul the purchase and reopen the
These statements are substantiated by
an affidavit of W. P. Clyde.
On the other hand, parties who are
opposed to the representations made in
tnis statement, say that the whole affair
is a plan concocted in Wall street, New
York, as a speculation, aud that it was
known two weeks ago that the purchas?
ers could not comply with the terms of
the sale. Parties interested on either
side have equally strong opinions as to
the purpose of the other; but as a matter
of course what is proposed to be done
will not be disclosed previous to a ''udi
It is alleged by several gentlemen who
are in a position to underhand Jie de?
signs of the purchasers that the money is
not lacking; that the whole amount is
now in bank ready tobe used for the first
instalment, but it is deemed best to await
the decision of the court in reference to
the point raised as to the legal bid at
which the road was first knocked down
to Mr. Courteuay. This extension of
time, it is said, was granted in order to
allow the buyers an opportunity of hav?
ing tbe points settled by the Court. In
the event of a decision being rendered
adverse to the position assumed by the
purchasers they will not appeal, and
thereby prolong litigation and cause un?
necessary delays, but will at once com?
ply with their contract by paying down
the stipulated sum of money.
THE CASE OP COL. CASH.
A Disgraceful Scene In Cheraw?No Ar?
rests, aud the Offenders Iteturn to their
Charleston Sunday News.
Cheraw, S. G, Saturday, July 16.
Col. E. B. O. Cash and his son, W. B.
Cash, accompanied by Col. Watts, of
Laurens, came into town yesterday for
the purpose of obtaining the release
of Col. Cash on a writ of habeas corpus,
and also with the avowed intention of
attacking Mr. Pegues, the publisher of
the local paper, The Carolina Sun, which
in its comments on the recent duel, has
expressed the general sentiment of the
State. A threat of horse-whipping had
been pr viously made by young Cash,
who came to Cheraw some nights since
to carry it out, but was persuaded by
friends to relinquish his purpose. After
a few days spent in a state of siege, the
threatened journalist was assured by
people of standing that the trouble was
entirely over and was thus thrown olf his
guard. Col. Cash and his son lounged
about Front street all day, awaiting the
arrival of Solicitor Sellers. Mr. Pegues,
when going quietly home to dinner,
passed the group sitting at a street corner
aud eatiug watermelons. As he turned
the coruer, his back being to them, young
Cash drew his pistol, calling out: "Stop
you d?d scoundrel," with other words
to the same effect. The father threw off
his coat and drawiug his pistol vowed
that he "would see a fair fight." Some
gentlemen forming part of the group
hastily intervened and put Mr. Pegues
out of reach, thrusting him into an open
doorway and locking him up. There
was cursing and threats of violence out?
side for a while, which finally ended in
an adjournment to the nearest barroom
in company with the sheriff. There was
great excitement. The Intendant was
out of town, but a member of council
was called upon to arrest the pair, which
he declined to do, but said it should be
done in the event of another demonstra?
tion. In the meantime and until dark,
having been warned that another attack
was threatened, Mr. Pegues, who had
made his way to his office, was forced to
remained there ou guard, while free and
uutrammellcd his assailants paraded the
streets in the Aice of a community that
nominally condemns their whole action.
Mr. Solicitor Sellers arrived on the
evening train ; a hearing was had before
Judge Mclver, and Col. Cash was admit?
ted to bail in the sum of three thousand
dollars. The Solicitor at first demanded
that the bail he fixed at twenty thousand
dollars; then at ten thousand dollars;
but the counsel for the accused succeeded
in getting it reduced to three thousand
dollars. No proceedings whatever were
taken against young Cash for his cow
ardlv attack upon Mr. Pegues, and he
and "his father returned to Cash's depot,
openly continuing their threats against
the proprietor of the $?n.
Col. Cash will be tried for murder at
the September term in Darlington
Tho News and Courier containing Gen.
Butler's manly letter had been received
before the party left town, and Col. JO. B.
C. Cash indulged in some of his choicest
expletives respecting it, vowing that he
would give the Senator "a wooden heart
to match his wooden leg," but without
clearly indicating how this remarkable
present was to be made.
He Writes n Letter Ar a Very Small Tail
Tor tin! Kvpublicuii Kite.
New York, July 10.
Gen. Arthur, Republican candidate
for the Vice-Presidency, has written a
letter to Hon. Gco. F. Hoar, accepting
the nomination. In it he says the au?
thority of the National Government to
preserve from fraudulent elections, at
which its own officers are chosen, is the
chief point on which the two parties arc
plainly and intensely opposed. Acts of
Congress for tcu years have, in New York
and elsewhere, done much to curb the
violence and wrong to which the ballot
and count have been again and again
subjected, sometimes despoiling great
cities, sometimes stifling the voice of a
whole State afterseating not only in Con?
gress, but on the bench and in the Leg?
islature, numbers of men never chosen
by the people. The Democratic party,
since gaining possession of the two
Houses of Congress, has made these just
laws the object of a bitter, ceaseless as?
sault, and, despite all resistance, has
hedged them with restrictions, cunningly
contrived to baffle and paralyze them.
The Republican party ha-s strongly ap?
proved of the stern refusal of the repre?
sentatives to suffer an overthrow of the
statutes believed to be salutary and just.
It has always insisted that the Govern?
ment of the United States of America
is empowered, and in duty bound, to
effectively protect elections denoted by
the Constitution as national. It is a
suggestive and startling fact that the
increased power derived from the enfran?
chisement of the race now denied its
share in governing the country is wielded
by those who lately sought to overthrow
the government, and is now the sole
reliance to defeat the party which repre?
sented the sovereignty and nationality of
American people in the greatest crisis
of our history. Republicans cherish
none of the resentments which may have
animated them during the actual con?
flict with arms. They long for a full and
real reconciliation between the sections
which were needlessly and lamentably
at strife. They sincerely offer a band
of good will, but they ask iu return a
pledge of good faith. They deeply feel
that the p*arty whose career is so illus?
trious, in great and patriotic achieve?
ments, will not fulfill its destiny until
peace and prosperity arc established iu
all the laud, nor until liberty, thought,
conscience, action and equality of oppor?
tunity shall be not merely cold formali?
ties of statutes, but living birth rights
which the humble may confidently claim
and the powerful dare not deny. He in en?
dorsing the civil service resolution and
resumption policy, refers to the ques?
tions of education, tariff, internal im?
provements and improvement of water
courses, and in conclusion, says: "There
is danger iu entrusting the control of the
whole law-making power of the Govern?
ment to the party which has, in almost
every Southern State, repudir.ed its
obligations, quite as sacred as those to
which the faith of the nation now stands
