WASHINOTON, Juno 26-Tho precise position oc
cupied by the Democratic membors of Congress
in referenco to tbo Union Convention, called at
Philadelphia, is thus etatod: Thoy aro favorably
disposed towards such a Convention, bolioving
that the representation of tho Southern States in
Cou/jress le not only a right, but necessary to tho
harmony and prosperity of tho country. Thoy
are willing, therefore, to co-operato with the
Union Convention for that purpose. But if it
Bhall be perverted from its original and patriotic
design, for the formation of a now party, they pre
fer clinging to their own. At prosent the Demo
crats seem inclined to further the movement.
Charges affecting the private character of Gen.
KILPATRICK, the Minietor to Chili, aro said to have
been presented to tho Stato Department. If true,
it will no doubt cause his speedy roturn.
It is thought that tho House will adhero to ita
tax of five cents per pound on cotton, which will
cause a conference committoe. The action of that
committee will probably be a compromise on the
Senate amondmont, which will fix the tax at two
and a half cents.
D. N. STROTHER, of West Virginia, has boen con
firmed as Consul to Buenos Ayres.
The Secrotary of tho Treasury will redeem all
certificates of indebtedness falling duo after Au

sented for redemption in or before July.
WASHINGTON, June 26.-The Freedmen's Bureau
hill passed the Senate to-day, with an amend
ment to the House bill which peremptorily con
firmed the negroes iu the possession of land un
der SHERMAN'S order. The Senate amondmont is
that the negroes shall surrender all the Boa Isl
and lauds to the owners, except those sold for
taxes. The hill is to continue in force three years.
It goes back to the House. Congress has passed
the House bill amendatory of the act to organize
Washington Territory. It makes the sossions of
the Territorial Legislature biennial instead of an
nual, and incroasos the compensation of members
from $3 to $6 per day. The President has approved
the hill for the disposal of the public lands for
homestcadB to actual settlers iu the States of Ala
bama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Flor
ida. Nothing of iuterest in the House.

THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION-ITS DUTIES AND
COST.-Tho Hoase of RoprosontativoB has passed
the bill establishing a department of education,
authorizing the appointmont of a commissioner to
bo paid $2000, chief clerk $1800, and two other
clerks, $1800 and $1600 per annum. The depart
ment is designed to collect and dissominato statis
tics and information concerning the bost educa
tional modes, Ac.
These best "educational modes," with tho
sohool books in which they are taught, will ema
nate from radical sources; and having control of
the whole matter of education, the new Bureau
will take good care i hat the young idea at the
South, white or black, is taught to shoot in the
right dir ectipn. . Now, we only need a department
or Burea u of Beligit u, and the reconstruction of
the Bep ulalie will be completo. The additional
Bureau would only coat a few millions, and it
would aft' ord Boftplaoes to many loyal men rtf_> ii

The Now York News oxtraots from the last
volumo of the oonsue for tlSGO, just iumiotl from
the Govornmont printing prcas tables, some facts
illustrating tbo comparativo amount of pauperism
and orimo in tho Northern and Southern States,
as well as of each of the 8tates composing tho re
spective soctione, for tho year ending Juuo 30th,
18G0. Not having room for tho tablos, wo aggro
gate results as follows :
The nineteen Northern StatoB of California,
Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Now
Hampshiro, Now Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon,
Pennsylvania, Rbodo Island, Vormont and Wis
consin, contained a population of 18,917,753.
Whole number of paupers supported within the
yoar-nativo, 140,238 ; foreign, 156,241. Whole
number of criminals convicted within tho year
native, 29,089 : foreign, 62,259.
The fifteen Southern States of Alabama, Arkan
sas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kontucky, Lou
isiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Tonnessee, Texan,, and
Virginia, contained a population of 13,240,593.
Whole number of paupers supported within the
year-native, 18518; foreign, 4546.
Whole number of criminals convicted within the
year-nativo, 3077; foreign, 3477.
This exhibit for the South, with &U "the bar
barism of slavery," is something to bo viowed
with complacency, if not pride. Not disposed,
however, to blow our own trumpot, wo let tho
News speak for ne. That journal says:
From thean tables it appears that the amount
of pauperism in the Northern States during the
twelve months which they include, was 1.57 per
cent, of the population of those States-0.73 per
cent, of the paupers being nativo born, and 0.83
of foreign birth. The amount of pauperism in
the Southern States during the same period is
found to have been 0.19 per cent, of the popula
tion of that section of the country, of which 0.15
per cent, waa supplied by native born paupers,
a d 0.04 por cent, by those of foreign birth.
The criminal statistics show that, within the
yoar, the number of persona convicted in the
Northern States was 0.48 per cent, of their popu
lation, of which 0.15 per cent, were native Ameri
cans, and 0.33 per cent, foreigners. The convic
tions in tho Southern States, at tho same time,
were 0.06 per cent, of their population, a fraction
more than half being native bora, and a fraction
less than half being of foroign hirth.
Thus the ratio of pauperism and crimo in the
North were, in I860, each eight times greater than
they were in tho South.
"Ob, but it is the large numbor of foreigners
we have among us that fill our workhouses and
our prisons 1" we fancy wo hear some Radical re
But let us take merely figures that refer to na
tive horn Americans, and see bow the matter then
stands. Why we even tbou flud that the ratio of
native pauperism in the North waa five times moro
than what it was in the South, and that tho ratio
of crimo anioug the native born was in the North
also five-fold what it was in the South.
These facts conclusively demonstrate the high
tone of morality that existed in the South, and tho
suiaU amount of pauperism that was found there,
prior to tho war. Tho Southern people eau look
upon the record with no slight degree of pride;
and tho evidence it adduces ought alono bo suffic
ient to prove how worthy they are to stand in the
?TtiMSyntfUti vWhe^a?faXtSS"t?Sta ?Sb??tioH
ought positively to guarantee.

SANTA ANNA AND BWINDLINO.-Under this oap
tion the Philadelphia Ledger of tho 16th inst., has
Santa Anna, it seome, has all the misfortunes
that usually accompany notoriety. In April last,
it appears that two persons, representing them
selves agents of Santa Anna, carne to tha United
States, and bought, ostensibly for him, of parties
in this city, a steamer called tho Agnes, for which
$100,000 in gold was to be paid by the General
upon the delivery of the steamer at St. Thomas.
The steamer waa sent to St. Thomas, and refused
by Santa Anna, and she waa aooordingly brought
back to the United States, where the owners on
Thursday last had the two persons arrested in New
York and committed to jail to answer the oharge
of swindling. They, however, say that they were
empowered by Santa Anna to buy the steamer,
and can give no reason why he should have repu
diated them. The case promises some rich deve
lopments about Santa Anna's movements, and he
will, no doubt, be brought into Court as a witness
when it oomes up for trial.
A SiNouL-i. CASE.-Mr. Chas. T. Ohamblin, at
the time he was wounded, a lieutenant in the 8th
Virginia regiment, coughed from his throat a few
days since, a minnie ball that had been lodged
there for more than four years. He was shot at
"Seven Pines," June 1, 1862, tho ball --.-...ring the
side of the nose just below the left eye. If was
probed four inches, and found _ n.vo paesod
near perpondicularly ia scarcely missing the
brain. It disabled him for duty, and has ever
since caused much pain in damp weather, fre
quently rendering it almost impossible to swallow
at all. Whon coughed up on Tuesday evening
last, it seemed to have como from just below the
right ear, under tbo jaw bone, and caused but lit
tle pain, and was followed by no blood. It is an
ounce minnie, - not mashed out of its original
shape, although much dented by concussion with
the bones in the face. The coming forth of tho
ball caused a soreness in tho throat and a giddi
ness in the head for a day or two, but nothing
more.-Leesburg (Va.) Mirror.

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, June 23.-In a hastily written post
script, appondod to my last lotter, I informed you
that Judge CARDOZI had decided that tho Excise
Law is null, void, and-ab initio de fine-unconsti
tutional, and that the pooplo were jubilant in spir
its in anticipation of a largor amount of licenso,
and liconses to imbibe and sell spirits calculated
to make the jubilant moro jubilant still. To-mor
row will be a great day here, being the first Sun
day after the delivery of this importaut decision.
A half of New York will celobrato tho8abbathday
on this occasion by becoming most gloriously ele
vated, not to say drunk. As tho Herald justly
prodiotB, it is probablo that the Board will appeal
to the Supreme Court, and, in case this Court
should sustain Judge OARDOZ&'S decision, will ap
peal once more to the Court of last resort; but
that meanwhile a now election will bo held, when
the whole thiDg will be quashed effectually and
the law annulled forever.
Lot alTbeware of paper collars-at least such of
them as are beautifully polished and glazed. It
has been positively ascertained that this polish or
glOBS is given to the collar by submitting tho pa
per to a ohemical preparation in which arsenic is
one of the ohief ingredients. Next,that after wear
ing them for three years, the akin in tho back
part of the neck becomes impregnated with the
poison, and broaks out into horrible sores and
carbuncles. There have been hundreds of in
stances here where this effect has been produced;
wherefore, those who are wise would do well and
take warning in time. It were simply ridiculous for
any one to contend that ho has worn these collars
for a year or two without any such ill-effect being
produced, for it has boen oaloulated and demon
strated that it takes at least thre. years for tbe
poison to do its work. This precaution, however,
need only be adopted with the glossed collars.
.All that do not wear this polish-3uch as we ob
serve on some visiting cards which go through
the same process-are harmless, and may bo worn
with impunity. I have heard of a physician hero
who has sixteen patients afflicted with terriblo
Bores and carbuncles-all of them had tbe car
buncles on the back of tho neck, and all have been
wearing those paper collars fur throe years past.
I have dwelt thus on this subject, as I moan to
give a timely and important warning to your
The ex-Quoen of tho Bohemians of tho New
York press is no more. Madame JULIE DE MAR
GUERITES died on Thursday last at* Philadelphia.
Tho Madame waa a Miss GRANVILLE, daughtor of
Dr. H. B. GRANVILLE, a distinguished London
physician, who had, moreover, made some mark
in the litorary world as the author of a work on
the "Spas of Germ my," and another oi Russia.
When Miss GRANVILLE was yet an infant, her
father jnpwd from LOtvJM,$._ Paris, and. hur?? the
Paris." Miss GRANVILLE was married whilst quite
young to the Baron DE MARGUERITES, and tho
happy couple oame over to America in 1848. The
happy couple, however, soon became an exceed
ingly unhappy couple. The green-eyed monster
entered the heart of the Baron, who betook him
self to Europe, carrying along the ugly monster
with him, but leaving his handsome wife behind.
The handsome wife gave readings, concerts, ?Sec,
for her support, and was soon admitted into the
first circles of sooiety here, and being taken under
the patronizing wing ot N. P. WILLIS and others,
took up the pen again, and wielded it so success
fully as to raise her to the rank of Queen of the
Bohemians. She was divorced from tho Baron
and married GEO. S. FOBTER, of the Tribune.
From FOSTER she waa soon divorced by death. In
1853 she married SAMUEL T. BEA, of Philadelphia,
and left this city to reside in the last named place.
Sinco then ADA CLARE has reigned hero as the
Bohemian Queen. Who is ADA CLARE ?
ADA CLARE is well known to many of the first
young ladies of your city who went to school
about ton or fifteen years ago. They will no
doubt remember Miss ADA Mc*****"*., the most
intelligent and accomplished of the pupils at the
seminary of the Misses BATES. It will be remem
bered also that .ADA waa exceedingly religious and
eccentric-indeed, she was so much inclined to
religion that she could scarcely ever be induced
to enter a theatre, and yet we find her a few
months later making her debut as an actress on
the New York stage.
The students of the South Carolina College, in
the classes, I think, between '52 and '56, will re
member a handsome lady who entered the chapel
one Sunday, and who, just al the Bev. Dr. REY
NOLDS arose to deliver a sermon, arose suddenly
and abruptly retired. Miss ADA had nothing at
all against the Bev. gentleman, but had visited
the ohapel in expectation of hearing a sermon
from the great and eloquent THOBMWBLL, and her
disappointment got the better of her sense of
politeness and good breeding. Failing in her
debut here AB an actress, abo took np the pen,
and has met with sufficient success to raise her to
tho queenly position (?) ehe now occupies,
The Evening Express, in giving an account of the
"mill" betweon COLYER and BASNET AARONS, re
marked that wbilo even among prize-fighters it is
considered moan and dishonorable to give a man
a blow while he ia on the ground, and said blow is
adjudged foul, it is moat surprising that Uncle
Sam has had the poor ex-O. S. A. (so called) on
I the ground for more than a year, and yet keeps
punching him unmercifully. If I may bo allowed
to adopt a phrase not found in CHESTERFIELD _
letters to his son, I would say to the Ecprets,
from tho bottom of my heart, ?'bully for you."
Goneral GRANT has received ninety-six invita
tions to visit as many places on tho Fourth of

Disturbances in the City.
Messrs. Editors.--The daily disturbances oc
curring in our good city of Oharloston, onco so
quiet and orderly, stands seriously in the way of
our city's prosperity, and jeopardizes tho lives
and property of our oitizona. Who is responsible
for these disorders? How comes it that tim city,
onco remarkable for quiet and order, is convert
ed into a pandemonium of nogro rows and riots?
Although tho President's proclamation restores to
us our civil rights, martial law still provails. Tho
government of our city, as far as the negro is
concerned, is still in tho hands of the military.
Ia it that an order from tho Secretary of War
overrides tho President's proclamation? Do tho
military Bet at naught the Presidents proclama
tion, and obey, in preference, Secrotary Stanton?
Wo thought that none but rebels disobeyed the
constituted authorities. But our minds have
become so confused that it appears to us that
white has changed to black, and black to white.
Namos signify everything or nothing. One does
not know wuetber to credit their senses. Confu
sion reigns supreme. Now, for instance: Our
sight convinces us that from fifty to three hun
dred negroes are daily carried before the Provost
Court. Our ears convince us that a largo
number are condemned to various penalties-im
prisonment, fino and hard labor on tho streets.
But just at this last point our senses fail us. We
inquire diligently, where are all those condemned
to hard labor upon the streets? Who has seen
them? What part of the eily do thoy do this
"hard labor" in? Echo answers where. We are
assured by responsible parties that others, con
demned to imprisonment in open Court, arc at
largo one hour after tho adjournment of tho
Court. Are theso things BO? If BO, is there any
thing surprising in daily disturbances occurring?
If BO, should our citizens sit in quiet submission
to mell ills? Arc they so cowed that they are
afraid even to romonstrate? It is true that remon
strance nuil investigation seems to be to little
nurpoHo. Witness Stecdman and Fullerton's in
vestigation, leaving tho evil of the Frcedmcn'?
Bureau untouched, and only resulting in the re
moval o I some underlings, and the promotion of
higher officials. Torchance wo may have better
luck next tinto. Thin wo know: that Governmout
officials abhor light being lot in ou dark places.
Our unfortunate city is in a very benighted con
dition. Cannot a little light bo lot in upon tbo
administration of tho law, if law there bo. who?*?

man? The Northern people profess to be opposed
to all privileged el-sees. The PreBideut him.elf

wealth and social distinctions existed at the
North, a dead level was to be produced at tbo
South. And yot what do wo see? Two privileged
classes, the negro and the military, nether sub
ject to laws of the land, but withdrawn from the
Stato and local tribunals, to be tried and sentenc
ed by a Court established for thoir peculiar benefit.
Again, we become confused and ask, who are the
revolutionists? Who makes a mock of the Con
stitution and laws of the country? Who seta them
at nought? Rebels or loyal mon? Who aro rebels?
Who are 1 yal? Those who cling as drowning

tent to sorve her in any position, and neither sought for
rank nor accepted any immunity from tho dangers and
privations of his fellows. Though exempted by his
ofBco from tho dangers of battle, ho was ever by the side

his band and his forehead tho seal of hin fi.lclity to his
In his private relations his life exemplified the same
traits of firmness of principio, manliness of character,
devoted attachment to his friends, and gent?o suavity of

our time-honored banner, we shall feel that names and
lives like his adorn and Illustrate It better than 'brold
ered emblems and garlands of laurel. Therefore,
