The Sumner ScandaL
THE CAUSE OF TEX REPARATION OF SUMNER AND HIS
A public man sometimes becomes so public that
his private affairs command a publicity which it
would be an affectation of the press not* to notice.
Heneo I send you the following: Not two years
ago the long known bachelor, Charles Sunnier,
became a Benedick. A highly educated, and in
many respects an accomplished man, of good
maimers and better appearance, naturally enough,
he stood high among the ladies of Boston, and lie
had no difficulty in winning tho hand of a widow
(from one of the F. F. of Boston), who sacrificed
no inconsiderable jointure in marrying him. The
honeymoon had ali the apparent charm that honey?
moons usually have, when Mrs. Sumner went with
her husband to Washington, and new scenes en?
sued. Among the accomplished men composing
the Diplomatic Corps in Washington was Baron
Holstein, of Prussia, whom the Prussian King
had attached to tho. Prussian Legation there "to
Bpy out the land." Naturally enough ho courted
the acquaintance of Charles Sumner, the Chair?
man of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the
Senate, who at a dinner party introduced his wife
to the Baron, and who was placed beside ber at
dinner. An acquaintance ensued, and a friendship
followed, such as naturally and honorably spring
up between the sexes with kindred taste and
aspiration. The Baron attended to the lady in
matinees and soirees, and in otbor public places,
and occasionally escorted her from the Senate,
where both had been to hear the Senator apoak.
Mr. Sumner, becoming displeased with this ac?
quaintanceship-it cannot bo properly called in?
timacy-wrote a letter to Baron Holstein, in which,
while complaining of it, report says ho insinuated
something not honorable to the wife. The Baron j
wrote back a letter, in which, in substance, he
said there waa no cause of offence whatever-he!
had been polite to the Madame, aa ho was to other!
ladies of similar aceomplshmertta, and nothing had j
ever happened which propriety or good taate for
bade. But if the Senator was not satisfied with
that, he was ready to give him any satisfaction as u
man of honor demanded.
This correspondence was tho beginning and end
of part first ; but Mr. Sumner, report says, then
became cool to his wife, and the lady and the
Baron became more reserved in their intercourse.
Then Mr. Sumner, as Chairman of our Committee
of Foreign Affairs, wrote to the Prussian Mirister
of Foreign Affairs, tho distinguished Bismarck,
that if he (Bismarck) would recall' the Baron he
(Sumner) would be obliged. Thc idiot Bismarck; |
yielded to the potential posit ion of tho American
chairman of Foreign Affairs, and the Baron waa
recalled to Berlin.
Mrs. Sumner next became acquainted with this
correspondence, and, naturally enough, was in?
dignant beyond all power of description. Indig?
nation naturally rested upon that part of the cor?
respondence which, it was alleged, touched her
honor. The end of all this is, that Mrs. Sumner
has gone her way to Europe-then: common es?
tablishment in Washington being given up, and
another is taken by tho Senator tor the winter.
There is some scandal afloat beyond all this,
relating both to the Senator and the lady-such
as maybe expected from early deuouements'in snell
a marriage affair-but the basis of the*rcports in
Boston are such as I send you. What I have writ ten
is in everybody's mouth, and it may possibly be
erroneonB in some of the details, but in substance
probably correct. I aond it to you for publication
because what, if anything, ia wrong here hud
better at once be set right to stop the tongues of
the thousands that are making moro out of a few
facts.-Boston Cor. JV. Y. Express.
JUDGE CHASE AND TUE TRIAL OK MR. DAVIS.-The
letier of Chief Justice Chaso to Judge Underwood,
in relation to tho trial of Jefferson Davis, thc sub?
stance of which has already been given to tho pub?
lic, has appeared in full, and is as follows :
WASHINGTON, October 22, 1867.-Dear Judge
Underwood: OL reflection, I think it best that you
advise tho District Attorney, Mr. Chandler, that 1
will join you in holding court at Richmond on thc
13th of November if any important businoaa is to
be transacted. Mr. Chandler, I think, should
notify the counsel for Jefferson Davis of this, in
order that L- maj appear and take his trial if he
sees fit. As bia Bail was taken for bis appearance
on the fourth Wednesday of November, tie ia not.
it is true, bound to appear earlier; but, as it will
be impossible for me to be present except during
the first week of the tenn commencing on the
fourth Wednesday, because of the term of the Su?
preme Court commencing ou t he following Mon?
day, it may bo that Mr. Davis and bia counsel will
prefer the trial to take place at the earlier period.
It is understood that they wish that the Chief Jus?
tice in&v be prcseut. Vours verv truly,
SALMON P. CHASE.
To Honorable J. C. Underwood, District Judge.
THE "QUEEN" OF THE ENGLISH TCRF.-The
English papers tell of tho celebrated mare
"Achievement," which ia the heroine at present of
the sporting men of that country, as having ht en
to her owner worth her weight in gold. Din ing
the past ten years she has run twenty races, out
of which ahc has won fifteen, netting iii stakea for
ber owner $140,000. Assuming her weight to bc
about 448 pounds, would give $35,000 for even
hundred weight, and it takes about a hundred
weight of coined gold to make that amount
These large receipts aro exclusive of the sums the
owner has realized from his mare by betting. Mr.
Bonner, who has the horse Dexter, that never was
beaten, may perhaps find in this celebrated
EDglish animal a competitor worthy of hia noble

The opinion seems to bo very generally enter?

country was never in a more critical condition,
Politically and financially, than at this moment,

-the one to aoizo tho Government by forco-the
other greatly to moderate tho programme hereto?

adopted we may expect to see thc preauut Cabinet,
with one or two exceptions, retransfer their allegi?
ance. 1 am informed that Senator Chandler, of
Michigan, while here expressed the opinion (based
upou calculations ci this kind) that impeachment
was an obsolote idea. Judge Carter, of this city,

about such a result the iitiaticial question would

It will be remembered that upon tho issuance
of General Sickles' celebrated order, No. 10, by

reliably source, that the Judge noir deeply lamonts
tlii.-> dastardly surrender of his authority, and con?
templates au early effort in the way o? excusing
his great blunder." Whether ho has been brought
to recognize his criminal error by the late political
demonstration in Ohio, or by the significant move

SHERMAN AND URANT OX SUSPENSION.
The Boaton Poat's Washington correspondent
While those who profess to act "outside of tho
Constitation aro digesting President Johnson's
declaration that he will resist any attempt to st?l?
pend or degrade him before trial and conviction, I
will add, upon rcliablo authority, the declaration
of Gen. Sherman that such an attempt would be
clearly revolutionary, and should be resisted by
tho President with all the meaua within his con?
trol. This declaration, made to thoBC who had a
right to know his viowa, may have suggested the
propriety of ms return hero to assumo tho com?
mand of the Department of Washington, which
includes Maryland and Delaware. Such, also, was
the substance of an opinion expressed by Gen.
Grant wheu approached on thu subject during* the
last session of Congress by tho Chairman of the
the House Military Committee. Mr. Schenck de?
clared to his friends that before taking any oxtrome
action in tho premises tho opinion of Gen. Grant
Bhould be obtained, and he volunteered to procure
it. Wheu the subject was mentioned, Gen. Graut
promptly responded, in substance, that any at?
tempt to suspend the President before trial and
conviction would bo in violation of the Constitu?
tion. This reply of the Commanding General ar?
rested any further proceedings at tho time. It
may ba well in this connection to repeat that
President Johnson will hold readv obedience

the Senate convict him as required by the forms of
THE APPOINTMENTS OF DELEOATEH TO THE SOUTH?
A Washington telegram to the Baltinioro Sun

paper, iu which complaint is made that General
Pope' in appointiug delegates to tho Convention,
gives undue advantage to tho colored oarer the

with His eudorecmciil, substantially, that it seems
to him that tb?? allotment should bo made by coun?
ties instead of senatorial districts, as directed by
General-Pope; but as the timo for the election (the
29th instant) is near at hand, he cannot ace how
thc matter ctn be remedied. Ile has, howover,
telegraphed to (louerai Popo, askins it it ia practi?
cable to make the change sought, and whether it
would not bc butter to fix representation by conn?
ues instead of senatorial districts? Tho reply of
Getieral Pope has not been received, lt is to be
observed that Goueial Graut does not claim the
power to direct tho District Commander, aud
therefore his communication ?H merely suggestive.
A United States Senator, heretofore earnestly in
favor of impeachment, to-day gave his opinion
that the project liad failed and would be killed in

The Sumter News, referring to changes iu tho
rates aud B.-hodtile of the Smith Carolina Railroad-,
says goods can now bc brought cia Charleston to
Columbia at lower rates than by any other route.
It adds :
The enemies of tho South Carolina Railroad can?
not longer find cause of complaint. That road has
evinced a spirit of accommodation fullv equal to
the exigencies of the times. Since tfie war, in
proportion as ita financial condition haa improved,
it has from time to time lowerod its rates to suit
tho demands of the country. It must be borne in
mind that it needs patronage, and that, us a pure?
ly sta;.- institution, it has a right to expect it
from us. Greater prosperity will enable it to offer
still greater inducements to" the public. Tho sub?
ject oftrado with Charleston ?H closely allied with
the ouo to which we have briefly alluded abovo.
Such expressions, as wo havo sometimes met with
iu country papors, charging the city of Charloaton
with assuuiiug to be all that is important in South
Carolina, are simply childish.
We will not recall what she did during tho war,
into which the action of the entire people led the
State. The story is too well known. Now it would
be expected that sho would reap her reward in tho
increased attachmeut and support of our people.
But is it the case? It ia the old story. Home
manufactures, home markets and home institu?
tions of every kind arc neglected. A general dc
termination on t he part of our merchants to create ;
a Southern trade would soon ledound greatly to
their advantage, but for want of combiued effort j
in the right direction, they still go Northward for;
their goods. But even under adverse circum-'
stahees, Charleston offers -advantages, whioh are .
w?U worth inquiring into. She powesHPs mer- !
chants the business of whose lives has been to j
watch for and take advantage of every fluctuation:
in the market. With this experience, they cannot
but be able to buy on better terms than tho coun-^
try merchant, who visits the Northern market but
twico a year ab most. The reduction allowed them
on the immense stocks purchased for their whole-!
soV establishments places the goods in Charles-'
ton, after freight is paid, at a rate but little, if at:
all, higher than what they would coat a merchant]
dealing on a smaller scale. Now that the railroad;
accommodations aro so much greater, it is wolli
worth inquiry and trial on thc part of our mer-;
chants whether they caunot buy to as groat ad-'
vantage, in Charleston as elsewhere.

DEMOCRATIC MA JOB ITV IN THE CIT!-M KS. LINCOLN'S
' THTNOS-LTVELT TIMES.
NEW YORK, October 23.-New York is all agog
now over politics. Both parties are working might
and main, the Republicans to retrieve the measters
of October, the Democrats to add one more pillar
to the Conservative pyramid. At the last general
election out of a vote reaching nearly 800,000, tho
Radical majority was less than 14,000 ; and if the
change in this State is proportionately ns great
aa in thc other Stati s, the Democratic majority in
November next will approximate 40.000. This
liciug thc case, thc excitement runs high. Creely
and other leading Radicals, though privately admit?
ing that there is no hope, nre yet urging on their
cohorts with the enorgy of despair, knowing that
with the great Empire State standing as the bul?
wark of conservatism, their purblind machina?
tions threatening the peace and security of tho
Government will be foiled. The Democrats and
Conservatives, though calm and confident, are up
and doing, and knowing that thc eyes of the whole
country aro now hopefully turned upon them,
they are resolved on victory. The party here,
secure in the strength of its immense majority, ia
running opposition candidates for thc local offices,
but will unite lo a mau on tho general ticket. Not?
withstanding the fact that the Radical legislature
passed a law last winter requiring every voter to
bo registered anew thia year, lor thc express pur?
pose of cutting down thc Democratic majorities in
New York anti Kings counties applying lt only to
thcae two counties, it is pretty certain that their

The rooms of 'Brady, the pawnbroker, where
"Mis Lincoln's things" are set out for sale, are
still largely visited by the curious, the attendance
averaging a thousand persons a day. A three
hundred dollar sci of jewelry wa? sold yesterday,
bnt the dresses, which \ ?sitora aTC politely request?
ed not to handle, st ill hang neglected on tho chairs,
looking decidedly the worse for wear, and .ure em?
phatically dead slock. A good natured damsel,
robed in white, has charge of Hie articles, but it
is hard to imagine how her equanimity can he
preserved under the crossfire of questioning, per?
tinent and impertinent, to which she is constani'v
subjected. The subscription list for the family oj
of Abraham Lincoln, winch hangs up in a conspic?
uous place, is wofully blank. Among the subscnp
tiona Are several of ten cents, ?inda pint of pea?

affair alfords an instructive commentary on the
mutability or Americans.

TUE ENGLISH QUABBKL WITH AB?SSLNTA.-There
are two Hides to most stories,' and the Now York
Times insists upon it there aro also two ?ides to
the Abyssinian question. The caso, a? it stands
ot present, presents those feature?:
"Kiag Theodore has insulted, and detained as
! hostages an English Consul, other subjects, and
even a special English Envoy. But >n tho other
hand, Abyssinia has great grievances to allege
against England. Ignorant, degraded, low as
they art, the Abyssinian* have, from verv earlv
ages, been Christirns, and though in the imme?
diate neighborhood of Arabs, Egyptians and
Turks, tliey have always sueco tali'il ly resisted
Cue tide of Moslem invasiou and conquest. In
1849, England formally recognised the indepen?
dence of Abyssinia, and agreed to exchange am?
bassadors; and in 1865, by guaranteeing the se?
curity of tho Abyssinian seaboard, induced thc
reception of an English Consul. Hut siuce 18H2,
that policy has been reversed. The Egyptians
make uninterrupted slave raids into tho lowlands
of Abyssinia, and Bell thousands of Christians into
Moslem slaver}-. Tho English Consul at Jerusa?
lem declared XbvBsinians there to bc Turkish sub?
jects, aria allowed them to be despoiled of their
most venerated sanctuaries; tho representations
of King Theodore were unnoticed and his lotter to
Queen Victoria unanswered; and finally English
envoys assisted at tho uogotiation ty which Tur?
key sold Christian Abyssinia to Egypt, mid tho
British cannon officially saluted tho SOO Egyptiarj
troops who came in to take formal possession.
Why? Because England needed Egyptian cotton
aud tho repayment of Turkish loans. And thc
Consul sent to make negotiations was 'seized and
imprisoned by Theodore, who. reading the ordere
from England, saw how he bad been deserted and
betrayed. That is tho substance of a long letter
oublished in the English papers hy one who had
lived many years in Abyssinia, lt lias not been
contradicted. England's Abyssinian war will cost
rrore than it comes to."
