^ VOLUME V.NO. 737 CHARLESTON, S. C., MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 30, 1867. PRICE FIVE CENTS
To the Readers of the Daily NeWS-Our
Nevr Terms-Thc Cash System.
The announcement that on and after the fir-t
of January thc subscription price ot Tnt: DAILY
NEWS will be reduced to Six Dollars a year has
been received with many substantial marks of
appreciation by the public, both in the city and
State. But in order to publish a tirst-cla<s
paper at that low price, we shall be compelled,
in future, to adhere rigorously to the cash sys?
tem, and require, invariably, the payment of
subscriptions in advance, lt should be gener?
ally understood that everything required for
the publication of a newspaper-composition,
paper, press-work, labor, and expenses of
every description-must unavoidably be paid
for in CASU at the end of-every week. If the
credit system is tolerated, and subscribers
neglect to pay promptly, thc losses thus in?
curred by publishers in a little while cecome
intolerably onerous and oppressive.
There are hundreds, however, in our city
who, though anxious to take a live newspaper,
and willing to pay for it, can ill afford, ut this
time, even the small outlay of six dollars
To accommodate this class of readers, we
have made arrangements by which, on and
after New Year's Day, THE DAILY NEWS will
be delivered, every morning, before seven
o'clock, in all parts of the city, by attentive
and experienced newsmen, at EIGHTEEN CBNTS
A WEEK, payable weekly.
The advantages of this plan are evident ut a
glance. Those who take their papers upon the
weekly system only pay out their nionc;, week
by week, as their papers are received ; they
run no risk: they can stop their paper at any
time by giving one week's notice ; when they
leave the city for a few weeks they can suspend
their papers, and be at no expense. The yearly
cost at the weekly rate is more than when the
subscription at our advertised rates is paid in
advance at our offico; "t there is every reason
to believe that the new plan will, by its sim?
plicity, security, and the smallness of the cash
expense, enable many persons to take a daily
paper who could not become subscribers for as
long a period as six, or even three months. It
is our desire to accommodate all classes ot
readers, and those who are not able to pay
their subscriptions in advance can take advan?
tage of the weekly arrangement, which will go
into operation on January 1, next.

THE SOLDIERS' LEAGUE PRESTDENTIAL CONVENTION -
WHAT GENERAL GILLEM SAYS-DEMOCRATIC CELE?
The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun writes on the 27th instant :
Tho movement towards calling a Presidential
Convention under the auspices ol tho Soldiers'
Leagues, which was inaugurated here a short time
since, is taking shape, and such a convention will
probably bc called in April. Tho significance of
this seems to bo in tho interest of Cliicf Justico
Chase for tho Presidency, or at least against Gen?
General Gillern, who is here under General Ord s
order, socking roi tot'f?r Southern destitution, had
another interview with General Grant to-day. In
his report General Gill tm shows that three-fifths
of the freedmen will he thrown out of employment
by the failure of tho planters to plaut cotton.

tion for celebrating tho eighth of January nero.
Prominent speakers havo been invited from all

TUE ST. THOMAS AND ALASKA PERCHASES.
The Washington correspondent of the New York
From a trustworthy source I leam that tho dis?
position of thc House of Representatives previous
to their adjournment was positively inimical to
the consummation of tin- purchase of tho islands
of St. Thomas and St. John. Tho recent earth?
quakes have had the effect of shaking tho enthu?
siasm of many who favored the acquisition, and
tho retrenchment agitation has operated unfavor?
ably in a pecuniary point of view. This, it is said,
accounts for the hesitation of the government in
hastening tho transfer until tho overtDwering ob?
stacle-an appropriation ot tho necossary moDoy
bo either removed or the House lake conclusive
action to the contrary. Respecting Alaska, no ap?
prehensions are entertained as to thc co-operation
of the House, though it is generally known many
cold votes will be given in its favor. As the United
States Government has already taken formal pos?
session ot that hyperborean region, it is argued
that a negative ol' the money feat uro in the artair
would place the government in a verv awkward
position. Upon this ground many will support the
msasure who under other circumstances would act
adversely. Great efforts will bo made by thc
House Committee on Foreign Affairs to carry both

THREE MILLION WHITES AND BLACKS ON THE POINT
OE STARVATION-RAPINE AND BLOODSHED NEAR
THE RADICAL EQUALITY DOCTRINE TAKING ROOT.
We find the following telegraphed from Washing?
ton to the New York Herald :
One of your travelling correspondents, who has
just made an extensivo tour of Louisiana, Geor?
gia, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina nud
South Caroliua, represents tho condition of thc
freedmen as heart-rending in the extreme. In all
thc cotton districts of those States tho great mass
cf the fret dinon are not only on the point of star?
vation but possess scarcolv a sufficiency of cloth?
ing to cover their nakedness. At most of the
rad wa v stations many colored children collect on
tho arrival of tho trains and enter into competition
witb the famished swine 'and dogs for the posses?
sion of the boues thrown by passengers from ihe
trains, while scores of lazy negroes collect about
the depots ns spectators." In tho corn growing
districts the prospects of a lamine are not so near,
and wbites and blacks are on friendly terms. Ho
declares that the negroes are much more destitute
than under tlie o!d slave regime. In many counties
of these states the forest's are filled with annod
negroes, who hunt game in day time and make
raids upon planters' stock at night. Ibu reign of
terror is general in upper Louisiana, lower Missis?
sippi and the cotton districts of Georgia and tho
Carolinas. 'J he destitution, however, is not con?
fined to thc blacks. Thousands of thc white po?
pulation have not n month's provisions ahead,
and no moncv to lay in a supply. Many planters,
who were far-seeing, provided a year's supply for
their families, but the starving negroes have very
generallv pillaged their smoke-houses and grana?
ries and stripped them clean. Thc estimate of ?bi
number of persons compiled from statistics col?
lected by the Executives of thc States and others)
who will starve unless Congress provides some re?
lief, is three millions, two-thirds of whom .:re ne?
groes. Tins estimate embraces Louisiana. Missis?
sippi, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas. Ho has
no estimate ol'tho other unreconstructed State-.
Unless prompt action is taken to pr?vido for t je
starving freedmen and white; thc pillaging of thc
whites will become general.the latter will rt s;st.and
a bloodv conflict will be the result. Planters arc gen?
erally alarmed und would leave thc country could
they raise the means to remove their families.
Hundreds sro offering theil bornes for amere song,
but can find no purchasers. Plantations that be?
fore the wai commanded as high us fiftj dollars

HO general is the terror thal reigns and the desire
ol the owners lo save their families from the out?
rages that are threatened by th" negroes, mdess
aid comes from the government or li-L' pcop'e of
tho North. On the way North be witnessed a
Btrildng illustration of tho effect of Radical teach?
ings. At Greensboro', N. C., a po ly of negro emi?
grants entered the cars. In tho party were two
very pretty white girls. Investigation resulted m
learning that they were the daughters of an Lii?f
lish gold miner m Guilford county, N. C., and had
voluntarily lett thou- homes a? the mistresses of two
coal black negroes. They arc destined lo Vin?
cennes, Ind., and Xenia. Ohio. Much indignation
was manifested by the white passengers, nud
threat.; of lynching the negroes were indulged in.
but not carried out.

THE FENIAN AGITATION- THE CLERKENWELL EX?
Tho English papers give copious details of the
Fenian attempt to blow up thc Clerkenwell Prison,
and with thc Fenian movements generally. The
London Times, of December 14th, givea tho fol?
Yesterday afternoon an attempt was made to
obtain tbe release ol tho Fenian prisoners,
Burke and Casey, by blowing up willi gunpow?
der Ute outer wall ot the House of Detection at
Clerkenwell, in which they are at present eon
fined while under remand ; and it succeeded so
far as to effect an enormous breach in tho wall,
about sixty leet wide at the top, and lessening
toward the ground. Unhappily, that was not the
whole result. Upward of forty innocent people
men, women, and childreti of all ages, some of
whom happened to be passim,' at the time- wore
injured more or less severely by this gunpowder
plot, of whom one was killed on the spot, two
have since died, and a fourth is not expected to
survive the night. Thirty-six of tho Bufferers
wore removed to St. Bartholomew's Hospital,
where three died m thc course of the evening*, and
six to tho Royal Free Hospital in Gray's Inn Road.
Three and four of the wounded were members ot
the same family, some were mere infants, and the
husband of a woman who has since died of
injuries abo sustained, hes in Si. Bar?
tholome w'3, shockingly bruised and pros?
trated. Others are missing. Thc explosion, which
sounded like thc discharge of artillery, occurred
at exactly a quarter to four o'clock in the after?
noon, when there is still daylight in ever, these
short days, and was heard lor milos round. In the
immediate neighborhood it produced Hie greatest
ionstcrnatiot:; for it blew down houses and shat?
tered the windows of others in all directions.
The windows of the prison itself, of coarse glass
more than a quarter ol an inch thick, were to a
largo extent broken, and the side of tho building
immediately facing tho outer wall in which the
breach was made. r.nd ubont one hundred
and fifty feet from it, boars., the marks of
the bricks which were hurled against it hy?
the oxplosion. The wall surrounding tho pi ison
is about twenty-live fee' high, two feet three
inches thick at the bottom, and about fourteuti
inches thick at the top. Tho scone of the explo?
sion is Corporation Row. which runs parallel with
tho prison wallon its Northern side, and consisted
of houses three stories high- a une of them let
out in tenements and others used for various
manufacturing purposes. A very circumstantial
account of the transaction is given by an intelli
g nt little boy named John Abbott, thirteen years
of a .jo, who happened to be an eve-witness, and
who now lira at M. Bartholomew's Hospital, but,
happily, not much injured. The boy lived with
his parents at No. 5 Corporation Lane, and wo
cannot, perhaps, do botter than Rive his statomont
in his own words. About quarter to four o'clock,
lie says, ho was standing at Mr. Young's door. No.
5, when ho saw a large barrel close ta the wall of
tho prison, and a man leave the barrel and cross
the road. Shortly afterward tho man returned
with a long squin in each hand. Ono of these
ho gave to some boys who were playing in tho
street, and the other he thrust into thc barrel.
One of the boys was smoking, and ho handed the
man a light, which tho man applied to tho squib.
Tho man staid a short time until ho saw the squib
begin to bum, and thon ho ran away. A police?
man ran after him, and when tho policeman arriv?
ed opposite No. 5 "the thing wi_nl off." Tho boy
saw no more after that, as ho himself was covered
with bricks and mortar. Tho man, ho says, was
dressed something like a gentleman. There was
a white cloth over thc barrel, which was black,
and when the niau returned with tho squib ho
partly uncovered tho barrel, but did not wholly
removo the cloth. There were several
men and women in the street at tho time,
and children playiug. Three little boys wero
standing near the barrel all the time. Some of
tho people ran after tho man who lighted thc
stjtiib. On Thursday evening .Mr. Henry Pownall,
the Chairman of tho County Magistrates, in con?
sequence of information he had received, paid a
visit to tho prison and directed the Governor, Cap?
tain Todd, not to exercise tho prisoners in thc
ordinary way vestcrday either as to time or place.
Tho wail which his been blown down enclosed a
largo open space in which tho prisoners wero
accustomed to take exercise. Tho Governor,
therefore, had them exercised between nine and
ten yesterday mortimer, instead of the usu tl time,
which was bon>ooi ..ree and hali-past 'our in tho
afternoon, and to this precaution it is "pioliably
owing that tho diabolical attempt of yesterday was
THE LONOON PRESS ON THF CLEBKKNWKXL OUTRAOE.
Tho London Timos, of the I4tb, in an editorial
on the Clerkouwell outrage says : " Tho timo is
!iast for domeney and forbearance. The Fenians
lave tilled to tho' full thc cup of wrath. In deal?
ing with them public ophion will need rather to

fcrcd much at thc hands of her self-constituted
representatives, and never more than when shu is
made to appear before the woild as the mother of

nianism. At least let England show that what?
ever may have to be done, she will allow neither

Tho Telegraph observes that "oven b fore tho out?

TUE IRISH DEMONSTRATIONS.
Toe Pall Mall (Eng.) Gazette, referring to thc
demonstrations in ireland in reference to tuc Man?
chester executions, says:
If we are to take the plain ;.nd obvious significa?
tion of those meetings, we cannot conclude that
they were controlled by light or various feelings.
On the contrary, they do soein to have- been eon
trolled by one general and deep feeling-namely,
that the three mea hanged at Manchester were
martyrs thal in them patriotism vas put to death.
Such a conviction, so manifested, is not a thing
likely to expire m it day, nor to grow less feeble
because it could lind no better expression than in
a funeral procesi?n. Nor is it less dangerous be?
cause it is false. : ho question for us is, does such
a sentiment largely pervade the Irish people V If it
docs-aud there eau bc no doubt of it au, we sup?
pose then wo have so much inl'.amuiatory ma?
terial in Btore which is not tho less forniidabio be?
cause it is compressed; so is gun-cotton. More
than all, it would be unsafe to confine our regards
to the condition of things in Ireland alone. Tho
real danger ls, in fact, not in Ireland at all, nor in
thc prospect ol' any downright rebellion. Tho
danger is in America, and in tue uso which can bo
made of the rebellions spirit in Irolan.l to embar?
rass thc whole empire, uni to plunge that unhappy
country itself into worse unhappiness.
SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY FOR THE UXITED STATES.
Tho London Giono says: "A project is on foot
for tho establishment ol a Southern University in
the United States, and the assistance of English
churchmen in attamin? that object has been
sought by the Rev. F. YY. Tremlett, of St. Peter's,
Belsizo Park. The movement is not a sectional
one. It is intended as an offering to tho wholo
American church, and not to the Southern States
as against the Northern. Nor docs it proceed from
any single party in England-both High Church
and Low Church arc associate ! in it. All the arch?
bishops and most ot the bishops, all the colonial,
metropolitans, and many weil known leaders of
church opinion approve of it, and have expressed
thei . willingness to co-operate, So vera] eminent
statesmen, Loth OODSCrvatiVt and liberal, have pl a?
in sed to assist. Among the subscribers are Mr.
Gladstoue, Mr. Gathorne Bardy, Fai l Stauhopo,

Doon the committee are tho Earl of Carnarvon,
Lord Cranborno, Earl Nelsen, tin- Archbishop of

and Mr. Gladi!ono. There certainly could he no
better represe-itatioti than this ol' diff?rent sec?
tions of churchmen. Tho feoling which baa led to
thc movement is thu desire to draw closer th
bouds of sympathy between England and tho Ignit?
ed States and the English and American churchc*.
The cordial reception given to tho American bish?

Tho correspondent of tho Poll Mall Gazette,
writing from Rome on tho 6th of December, says:
'ibo evacuation of Romo by tho French is al?

French officers, who rather hoped to come into
collision with tbs Italian army, and it is io be
feared that all rcmcmbranco of the brotherhood of
the campaign of 1859 has evaporated on both
sides. Certainly the French speak as bitterly ot
tho Italians aa of tho Prussians, and consider that
their Emperor has acted with as much tameness

-C. M. McJunkin, a confectioner in Greenville,
last week detected a negro hoy named Peter in t ho
act of robbing bis money drawer. Several pre?
vious thefts were thus explained.
The store of Mr. James S. Stewart, in Winus
boro', was entered by a burglar on Monday night
and thoroughly ransacked. Th? Winnsboro' News
adds: "Not much w.vt taken, bnt the papers in the
desk were rifled and carefully examined, some
left on one of the show cases, and some dropped
on thc lot in the rear of the premises. 'J bree
pieces of ladies' dress goods were la (eu, and there
is no doubt tho thief could read hand-writing. If
we had a detective from Charleston, it is almost a
certainty that thc rascal who broke into Mr.
Stewart's store could" bo detected."
- A shocking affray occurred iu the village ot York
ville, on Christmas Eve night, in which one young
gentleman named Smith was instantly killed, and
another named Snyder mortally wounded, by a
person named L. Jones. It seems that at a ball
giveu in tiie village, and which was attended by
the most respectable and esteemed citizens of the
placo, a difficulty occurred between Jones and
Smith and Snyder! in which Smith had his throat
cut from tar to ear, dying instantly, and Snyder
was mortally woundod. .tones has given himself

-On Thursday night a desperate negro, named
Weat Bryce, who had been arrested for threaten?

from the Winnsboro' jail. He broke through tho
ceiling of his cell, pushed out the staple whic.i
held the bolt that socurod the outer (iron) door,
aud crawled over tho top of the wooden door.
Being in the third story, he tore his two blankets
into strips, tied them into a rope, and lot himself
down, lt appears from the signs that he crawled
down with the assistance of the blinda oponed up?

OUTRAGES nv THE FBEEDMEN IN N'OHTU Cuio
LIKA.-Tho Raleigh Sentinel, of the 21th instant,
calls the attention of tho military authorities to
tho terrible stato of affairs existing in certain
parts of North Carol na, owing to thc lawless dep?
redations and outrages of thc blacks. Tho Senti?
nel says :
Wo beg respectfully and earnestly to appeal to
tho military authorities of the State in behalf of
our people in ti e counties of Craven, Jones, and
Lenoir, who, MUCO the termination of the warr
have- ii^oii"liuD7c^kcd-tP tho most wicked, lawless,
and violent ou'ragos-rr?V?r8?3 i? cold blood, aud
robberies unequalled in i ny portion of our coun?
try. Citizens, quietly affmluc, oi^pnrroin- them
lawful business, .ne shot down, and\thcir poisons
and premises robbed by iawloss bands ,'imrmed
negroes. Our white people are not ullowcdro-bo
armed, but negroes uro known to bo fully anuetTp
an:l in that section of the State these outragea
have boen renewed in the most aggravated man?
ner recently. Thc efforts of both the military and
civil officers of that section have bean insufficient
to suppress tho disorders. Wo lour' from reliable ;
sources that general uneasiness aud larm exist in
those counties. Whito persons whi are obliged
to travel thu road; are now composed to go in
gangs for self-defence. No white man can travel
thc roads after dark without imminent hazard of
his life. Quiet fa in i hes are now almost every night
disturbed by these lawless bands, and tho slignt
est resistance to their plundering is met with in?
SCANDAL IN ENGLISH Ullin LIKE.-A case of
somo interest to Americans was brought before
the police magistrate at Bow-street, London, on
the 10th instant. Sir Eardley Gideon Culling
Eardley was committed for bigamy, in having
married in New York, in 1859, Miss Emily Florence
McGee, who is still living, and quite recently
another lady at St. George's llanover Square. Ul.
James McGee, father of thc rightful Lady Eardley,
deposed that his daughter was married to thc
prisoner at Calvary Chinch, in tho presence of Mr.
W. Cyrus Field, Mr. Charles Mosely and other
witnesses. It was proved that in New York such
a marriage, or ono in a private house, or even iu
the street, was legal, as it was in England in the
time of Goorgo II. Sir Eardley, defended by emi?
nent counsel, contended that tho mairiag? was
Illegal, but the magistrate committed hi n without
bail to tako his trial. Here thou, is another
Yelverton case, and another <.:< litton to be iv aro of
titled foreigners, or to mako sure that all tho
necessary formalities have been complied with.
Sir Eardley seems to have iniuginod that ho could
repudiato his Now York marriage, because thoro
was no ceremony before tho British Consul ; but 1
doubt if that plea will avail him. He bad himself
recognized tho original Lady Eardley as his wife
in articles giving ber a sep?ralo maintenance.

only in keeping with tho terrible task which hie

teaching will no doubt be thc way of holding power
with a stern, unfaltering gripe of repression.
