-The needle-gun now definitely adopted by
the BnflSlan War Office, is of the Prussian pat?
tern, but the needle being somewhat shorter
and thicker, the rapidity of the firing is Baid to
be slightly increased. If Kassian accounts are
trustworthy, an ordinary soldier will easily
accomplish eight discharges in a minute,
while a skilled hand is stated to have no diffi?
culty in reaching up to fourteen. There are
not many new rifles being made, the old ones
admitting of adaptation.

boxes for the receipt of these dispatches will
be placed in the different quarters of the city.
These boxes will'be cleared every ten minutes.
Afr the dispatch ea will be sent to the different
offices by the atmospheric tubes, they must be
enclosed in envelopes of given dimensions in
order to insure their immediate transmission.
-The Irish Church Establishment, con?
demned so long by enlightened opinion, bids
fair to make a stubborn fight. The commis?
sion of inquiry which was devised by the pre?
sent government of England as a respite from
the duty of saying what should be done,
seems resolved to regard their powers and du?
ties as limiting them strictly to the investiga?
tion of what may tend to reform of the Irish
Church from within. All idea of maturing a
plan for the re-appropriation of ecclesiastical
property to the common use of the whole peo?
ple, without regard to creed, is repudiated.
" -The short winter session of the English
Parliament gave to the students of parliamen?
tary history an event without a parallel in the
annals of the British Senate, viz : the father
leading the House of Lords, and through Mr.
Disraeli's absence, the son at the same time
leading the House of Commons. This was a
happiness denied to Elizabeth's great minis?
ter, Lord Burleigh, although his son Bobert,
on the death of his father, succeeded him in
what would now' be called the premiership;
and it was denied to Lord Chatham, although
his son, the younger Pitt, became Chancellor
of the Exchequer at twenty-three. Lord Stan?
ley acquitted himself excellently well.
-Quite a lively diplomatic bobbcrvjhaa been
kicked up in Alexandria by a charming young
Circassian slave, who escaped from the harem
of the Viceroy Latif Pasha, and ran as fast as
abo could to the Prussian Consul. The Consul
I decided that she became free from the moment
' she set foot upon the constructive Prussian soil
of the Consulate, and had her emancipation
pa sere made out. Latif Pasha then had her
arrested for theft, but the Prussian, backed up
by the British Consul, resisted. The Viceroy
proposed to submit the matter to the Hussion
Consul as arbiter, but the Britisher used such
strong language on the subject that the Rus?
sian complained to France, and asked the pro?
tection of that government. Thus the matter
stands^ four nations, in a squabble about A. .
-The London Timos publishes a long com?
munication from Mr. Vernon Harcourt, "His?
toriens," on the process of naturalization over :
here, and freely admits, for its own part, that
on grounds of policy, not to Bay commun
sense, the argument lor the revision of the
present law is irresistible. If the hundreds of
thousands of Irish emigrants who are now
citizens of the United States owe ful] allegiance
to Queen Victoria, it may also be doubted, ad?
mits the Times, whether they are not entitled
to English protection against conscription; yet
it would havo been utterly impossible for the
British Minister at Washington to grant them
snob protection during the late American war.
In short, the present theory of Great Britain
is quite untenable when any practica 1 strain
comes to be put upon it. The Times sees no
good reason why the British Government
should decline any friendly overtures that may
be made by us with a view to its amendment.
-The English papers, in noticing the mon?
ster show of fine cattle which takes place every
Christmas in tbe largest building in London,
put forward at the commencement of their ac?
counts, as especially important, the fact that
the Queen this year exhibits animals in her
own name, and not as supplied by the chief of
her household. Her Majesty- has with some
suddenness conceived a fancy for rearing fine
oxen, and goes to her farm at Windsor, lt is
said, and punches the animals' ribs in the most
approved connoisseur way. 80 interested is
she in the subject, that she had one of the
huge beasts which was dispatched from its
Highland home for the exhibition, stopped in
ita transit and taken round to Windsor Castle,
that she might judge of its merits. The taste
is an innocent one, and runs in the family, for
George IXL was a better farmer than long. It
is unnecessary to add that her Majesty obtain?
ed a prize. The British ugriculturist knows
what is due to his sovereign.
-The atrocious threat of killing a "promi?
nent Englishman" for each Fenian executed at
Manchester had not been acted npon, but we
find that policemen were kept throughout the
night outsido Lord Derby's private house, and
that the Home Secretary had detectives round
his person in his daily jaunts. Sad is it, mean?
while, that though the habeas corpus has been
suspended for nearly two years, no measure
for the benefit of Ireland has been proposed.
In the short session just closed, with Fenian
ism in full bloom, not a word was uttered cal?
culated to inspire the expectation of a policy.
All this while the London papers represent tho
state of trade in the metropolis as unsatisfac?
tory, and the Daily News gives deplorable
accounts of the distress which prevails at the
east end of London, immense numbers of
workmen are ont of work, and in many cases
the shopkeepers have had to close their shops
and leave the neighborhood.
ROYAL SCANDAL.-A great sensation has
been.created in Denmark by the scandalous
particulars recently published about the ante?
cedents of the notorious Countess Danner. the
widow of the late King Frederick the Seventh.
It appears from the details that Countess
Danner, was the issue of an incestuous union,
ber parents being brother and sister. She is a
native of Rhenish Prussia, and as a young girl
waa uiatmguished alike for her surpassing
beauty and her somewhat dissolute fife. After
giving birth to an illegitimate child, she mar?
ried a tavern-keeper at Muhlheim, near Colo?
gne, on the Rhine, and her beauty soon at?
tracted large numbers of travellers to her hus?
band's hotel, which was generally known as
"Hotel of tho Beautiful Landlady." One day
a Danish artist from Copenhagen stopped there
and was so smitten with hor charms that he
laid seige to her heart and prevailed on her to
elope with him to Denmark. At Copenhagen
Crown Prince Fredreick saw and lovedher, Dat
she turned a deaf ear to his application until
he heroically promised to marry her. He did
so in 1350, three years after he had ascended the
throne. It ia believed that she was never
divorced from her husband, the Muhlheim
tavern-keeper. King Frederick the Seventh
was so exceedingly fon? of her that he often?
times declared that hs would abdicate his
crown rather than give her up.
Circular Letter from General Scott.
THE FAIL USE OF THE CHOPS-THE NATURE OF
OONTBAOTS-TEEMS AND CONDITIONS-DIVISION
OF PROFITS IN. THE PBESENT YEAH.
The following circular has been leaned by
General Scott It will be found to contain his
views as to the causes of the disastrous failure
of the crops during the past year, as well as
bis recommendations in relation to contracts
with freedmen for the coming season :
HEADQUARTERS ASSISTANT COMMISSIONBB,
BUREAU REFUGEES, FREEDMEN AND ABAN- ,
. -DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA,
CHARLESTON. 8. C., January 1, 1868.
[Circular Leiter.} '
As the representative of the government in.
behalf of the interests of the freedpeople, I
deem it not inappropriate for me at the com?
mencement of another planting season to make
a few comments upon the i esults of the past
year's labors, and'offer a few suggestions as to
the nature of contracts for.the coming year.
It is with feelings cf regret that I review the
disastrous failure of. the rice and long staple
cotton crops in the vicinity of the coast. Up
to tue first of last July the prospect of a re?
munerative return for the labor and capital in?
vested was flattering, bnt owing to unavoidable
and nnforseen cansoB, beyond the control of
human power, the end of the vear finds both
the planler and laborer, upon the coast coun?
try, in an embarassed and suffering condition.
I should not be justified in dwelling further
upon this topic so well understood by all par?
ties interested; suffice il for me to say that the
general failure of the rice and long staple cot?
ton crops cannot be attributed to want of care
and expense on the part of the planter, or lack
of labor and attention from the freed people.
In. some districts in tho central and upper
portions of the State, very fair crops of snort
staple cotton and corn have been harvested,
bnt owing to the debased condition of the
cotton market,' thr finds that the pro?
ceeds of the Bale ol that staple will not reim?
burse him for the cost of production.
The general testimony from these sections is
that the freedpeople have worked faithfully
and well, some Bay "never better;" this may be
partially accounted for by the fact that the
small planters or farmers of the interior are
accustomed to labor themselves, and by giving
their entire personal attention to their plant?
ing interests, they have thereby encouraged
the freedpeople te emulate the example thus
set them. I have, however, been informed
that owing to the scarcity of provisions at the
commencement of the past planting season,
many freed people were compelled to enter into
contracts which were either not liberal in their
nature, or did not provide sufficiently remune?
rative wages, consequently they find them?
selves at the end of tho year penniless, or in
debt, and feel dissatisfied and aggrieved; with?
out confidence in their employers and indispo?
sed to contract for another year. No State in
the Union is more blest with a diversity, of
climate and natural production than South
Carolina; the staple crops of the more tem?
perate regions which are there found so profit?
able to the farmer, are equally adapted to this
latitude, and the same industry and care ex?
erted here will be attended by equal success.
No valid reason exists to prevent this State
from being entirely self supporting; more im?
portance should be attached to tho general
farming interests of the country, at least two
thirds of the tillable land should be devoted to
the production of provision crops, the cultiva?
tion of cotton should, in my opinion, be made
secondary to that of cereals, aa an increased
production of the latter would place all classes ;
of community beyond the reach of that pres?
sing want which now threatens starvation, un?
less again relieved by the donations of the 1
"TTc?rWfihy'must daimu?SEVi"?vcry'pr?c-" '
Heal man that tree -limo? lal??? ?c-rci-tro ' "
a success in this State unless liberal and fair
contracts are entered into and observed; the ,
freedpeople cannot much longer be hood?
winked and imposed upon, they are rapidly
learning the worth of money, and all persons
who have in any manner overreached them
mav depend noon it that eventually they will
find that they cannot procure labor to till their
plantations; while planters who have, by a juet
and generous course of treatment, obtained
the confluence' of their laborers, nave thus i
secured themselves sufficient means to carry
out their plans for the coming year.
It may not be improper for me in this connect- j
ion, to counsel the Ireedpeople to avoid contract- j
ing, the coming year with those planters who i
have persistently wronged and defrauded them; j
taking care and seeking proper advice that they ]
may not confound dishonest men with those ,
high-minded planters who, owing to tho unfa*
forable season, have been unable to meet their j
engagements, but in whose integrity all can ?
As to the terms of contracts for the coming |
year, I am obliged to express my unqualified
approval of the system of paying wages in
money, for such periods as may be agreed np- !
pon. giving preference to payments at the end
of tue year.as the plan best calculated to in?
sure the laborer a portion of his pay at the ,
termination of his contract, and it also gives
the planter opportunity to at once discharge
an idle or disaffected employee upon payment
of wages due to date of discharge. It will also
tend to produce a more uniform rate of wages
tnroughout the country, and thus avoid the
the breach of contracts frequently made on va?
rious pretexts for the purpose of hiring to an?
other planter, who may temporarily give an in?
I would not be understood as advising
any combination on the part of the planters
to reduce or keep down wages, neither would
I countenance a like combination by freedpeo?
ple to secure wages that planters cannot afford
to pay; but it woull be for the interest of all
parties to fix upon some approximate amount
within the power of the planters to pay, with
reasonable profits to themselves, and not be?
neath tho limits of a sufiicient support for a
free laboring man and hie family. It is not
within my provinoe to fix thiB desirable rate,
but I may express the opinion that thc contrac cs
made during the past year npon the sea islands
and upon the coast, were more liberal in their
general character, and amount of wages paid,
than those of the upper country.
Whenever from lack o? means the contract
system based upon shares of the crop, bas to
be adopted, the apportionment of the gross
1troc?eos should be made aa follows: To the
and one-third; to the laborer one-third; the
capital consisting of work animals and their
feed, implements and fertilizers, one-third; the
interest of the laborer to terminate upon the
completion of the gathering and marketing of
It is more than probable that the majority of
planters will be obliged from want of funds to
adopt the latter system, or some other ap
Sroaching it in ita nature, but differing in ita
etails ; but no contract less remunerative
than the one-third suggested for the laborer,
should in my opinion be tendered or received.
It is furthermore desirable that planters
make arrangement with physicians to atteud
the Bick upon the plantations at a reasonable
rate rJer visit or family; a clause to the effect
that the laborer should pay pro-rata for such
medical service, might be inserted in contract?.
I cannot too strongly recommend briefness
and simplicity of form in all contracts without
regard to their nature or terms.
Many contracts have been submitted to me,
the terms of whioh were simply absurd, sum
as the imposition of Anea or stoppages for im?
pertinence, for failure to comply with certain
plantation regulations, &c, &c" all of which
are inconsistent with the laborers' status as a
freeman, and an accountable being. Such
clauses in contracts will be a continued source
of annoyance and vexation to both employer
and employee, and should be omitted in all
If a laborer absents himself from his allottod
task, he should be charged for the time so
..lost, at the rate which he would have received
if he had worked; all addition of extra fines for
lost time is improper, and should never be
proposed in a community where the free labor
system is expeoted to succeed.
Time will not permit me to further disouBB
this question, but it must bo apparent to all
practical men that tho planters in this
State must in the future look mainly
to the colored race for the greater part
of their laborers. It should therefore bethe
earnest endeavor of all good citizens to fix the
colored people in permanent locations, to assist
them in providing schools for the education of
their children, in supporting intelligent, reli?
gious instruction among them, and by precept
and example to foster the virtue of continence
and sobriety; teach them respect for the mar?
riage relation and the laws of the country, and
in Fact by a systematic course of fair treatment
to win their confidence and respect, and thus
make them valuable citizens in a community
in which, although natives, they have acquired
new rights.; .... E. K." SCOTT,

PBOPOSED BEPBAX. OF BESOLUTIOXS BATTFYTNG
' THE OON8T1T ll TIONAL AMENDME?T.
Washington telegrams of the 30th nit., to
the New York Herald saya :
It has transpired that a movement is being
made which will have an important effect on
I the work of reconstruction. ? number of lead?
ing spirits in the Coneerative nifty are en
deavoring to prevail upon the legislatures of
those States which hare passel resolutions
ratifying the constitutional amendment known
as article fourteenth, and which legislatures ?
have obtained an anti-Republican majority by
the late ?lections, to repeal the r?solutions of
ratification. This, it is believed,-they have
clearly the right to do, as the proposed amend?
ment, not having been ratified by tie requsite
number of States-three-four ins- it not yeta
portion of the constitution. It is chimed that
if New Jersey, Ohio and California should re?
peal the ratification resolutions the efiect
would surely be to provent the proposed
amendment from ever becoming engrafted
upon the Constitution of the Unit? States. '
TESTING THE CONSTITUTION ALITT OF UTE BJC CON- I
BTBUCTION ACTS IN THE 6UPBEKE00URT.
There are several highly imposant cases
about to come before the Snprene Court of
the United States, each of which v?U test the j
constitutionality of the Reconstruction acts, j
One case, the trial of which is expected to be
gin very shortly, will decide the question as to
whether Yirgiaia is in or ont of the Union. , It I
is confidently believed that the decidion of the
oourt will be that Virginia is not nov and never
has been out of the Union, in which case the
situation in the Southern States will be mate?
rially changed. The President, it is said, will
then instruct the military district commanders
to act m strict accordance with the decision of
the highest tribunal of the nation, aid permit
the civil governments to resume their rune
tiona untrammelled by the military power. It I
is the belief of a prominent Senator here that I
a majority of the Judges of the Supreme
Court, when the McArdle case comes np, will
decide that the Reconstruction acts are nn
constitutional, that Cbief Justice Chase will
deliver the minority report, and maia the most I
of the opportunity to champion the acts and
identify himself yet more earnestly with the
Radical party North and South. If the bot
tom should thus fall ont of the scheme for
Africanizing the Southern States, it ia behoved
General Grant will reject any nomination
coming from the Republican party?.
BELIEF FOB THE DESTITUTE PEOPLE OF THE I
General Howard proposes to meet the oases
of distress in the South by a liberal application
of the surplus funds under his control as head
of the Freedmen's Bureau. An unexpended
balance of over $8,000,000 still remains in tho [
exohequer of the Bureau. In the case of some
South Carolina planters, who had no money to
commence operations for raising cotton last f
year, General Howard, though not legally an- J
thonzed to make auch disposition of the Bu- I
reau funds, advanced a sum of $80,000, taking I
a lien on the crops for the rbpayment of the
money. When the planters sold their crops
the entire amount was liquidated, and General
Howard's beneficent course was gratefully ap- I
predated. In tho case of the Mississippi plan
tera, who lost everything by the river inunda?
tions, it is proposed to adopt a similar co ns i de
rate and politic plan of action; and to relieve
immediate distress among the working people
it is suggested to establish depots of provisions
at points convenient to the districts in which I
the greatest want prevails. _
Information has been received here that the
Stockholm newspaper, the Volksblatt, advises I
the Swedish Government to follow the exam
Die of Denmark by selling to the United States
its WeBt India Island of St. Bartholomew. Thia
ia regarded here in offioial circles aa another I
indication that European monarohies are re?
tiring from this continent under the influence
D? the Monroe doctrine.
?PEECH OF SEKATOB MOBTON ON THE ISSUES OF I
United States Senator Morton, of Indiana,
,n response to the invitation of the Soldiers'and
Sailors' Union, addressed a large audience to
mght, in the hall of that association, his sub- I
?oct being the issues of 1668. He said that
imong them would be the complete restoration I
of the Southern State governments into the
bands of the rebels by the defeat of the Con?
gressional plan of reconstruction, and that the
success of the Democratic party directly in?
volved compensation for slaves, the assump?
tion of the rebel war debt, and pensions to
Confederate soldiers and their widows and or?
phans. He analyzed General Hancock's recent
order, which the President had laid before Con?
gress in his message, saying that it made no
mention whatever of the business of recon?
struction, bat was directed entirely to a Recog?
nition of the legal character of the existing
State governments, and that the President
pledged himself to sustain them fully in the
execution of their powers.

The New York correspondent of the Phila?

Perhaps the most significant political fact
to-day ia the published programme of A. T.
Stewart, Esq., concerning the next Presiden?
tial ?lection, as presented to the Committee of
Twenty-five, appointed by the meeting that
was held at the Cooper Institute some weeks
since to nominate General Grant The Com?
mittee of Twenty-five were in counsel last
night, and to tbese gentlemen the great dry
goods merchant confided his plans. These
plans, in brief, contemplate an avoidance of all
conflicts with politicians who might seek to
use the committee in behalf of candidates for
Vice-President or any other position, ?riving all
their efforts to aid General Grant alone; also
to issue business circulars to all commercial
men throughout the country, urging them to
fall in with the movement, so as to make it
The importance of this proceeding consists
in the wealth and position of the men who are
backing it up. A. T. Stewart is probably the
richest man on Manhattan Island to-day, and
when he and such other capitalists as Wm.' B.

(of Brown Bros.) are pulling on the same "com?

to make its mark.

gives tho following particulars of an affair
already mentioned in oar telegraphic advices :
About half-past nine yesterday morning
Judge Busteed, Judge of United States Dis?
trict Court, crossed the street directly from the
Battle House towards the Customhouse. Mr.
I, Y. B. Martin, the United States District At
torney, was standing'in front of one of the
granite blocks at the southern entrance to the
Customhouse, facing tue street, and is Judge
Busteed placed hie foot upon the curbstone of
the sidewalk, Martin levelled a revolver und
fired at him, the ball striking just bolow the
breastbone and knocking him down. He fell
backward, outside of the pavement, with one
foot Wing thereon, and Martin then s dvanced
and deliberately fired two more shots, one of
them striking the right leg below the lenee and
passing up into the thigh, several inches above
the knee, whence it was afterwards extracted
by the surgeons. The affair, of court e, crea?
ted immense excitement on the streets in'the
neighborhood of tho occurrence. The ' rounded
man was conveyed to the office formerly occu?
pied by Dr. Nott, on St Francis-street, and
afterwards to his room in the Battle House,
and was attended by Dre. Ketchum lind Gil?
more: perhaps other physicians assisted. It
was found that the wound in the stomach,
which was at first supposed to be fatal, was not
necessarily so. The ball (as reported to ns)
was diverted from a direct coarse, an 1 passed
upwards under the sternum, or brea.it bone.
This, at least, is said to be the opinion of the
surgeons, who failed to find the deadly pellet,
and who thiuk his chances of recovery vory good,
j The cause of this murderous assault naturally
I attracts inquiry, and will be tully investigated
! and made public. Judge Busteed is a sworn
enemy to the monstrous conniptions in offloe
I with which this country is cursed. He has
firoved it, and was proceeding to pre v? it in
be most emphatic manner; whatever may have
been said or prie ted about his public history,
nobody can deny that. An indictment had
been found by the Grand Jury against Mr.
Martin for malfeasance in office. We know
nothing, at present, of its specifications. .It
seems that he attributed it to Judge Busteed,
and has been heard to make dire threats
against him. After being arrested, in fact, he
exhibited no contrition for the cruol deed,
and said that he had some time ago warned
Judge Busteed to ann and defend himself.
To a question whether he desired to make any
statement to the public, he replied t hi, t he did
not, at present, we charge our triencls in the
North to see to it, that the odium of this
wretched and cowardly deed is not cast upon
the people of Mobile, nor attributed to any
malevolent spirit prevailing among th3 South?
ern people. Its perpetrator is not of us. He
may be a Southern born man, but he belongs
to the class known here as Southern rene?
gades. He is a Radical.
Judge Eua tc ed's condition is considered by
his physicians highly favorable. His pulse is
strong and regular, and he suffers vory little
pani from his wounds. His physician a autho?
rize the following statement of the oase : The
bail entered the epigastrium and ranged Up?
wards, passing into the thorax inst beneath
the sternum, or breastbone. Tnere was ho
expectoration of blood-no signs of injury to
any of the important organs of tho chest
The other ball entered the front of the right
leg, just below the knee, ranged upwards, and
was out out of the upper portion of Lae lower
third of the thigh, it was found lying immedi?
ately over the femoral artery at the point
designated, "J he shock to the nervous system
was consid?rable. The wounds, though seri?
ous, will not, in the opinion of the a ttending
physicians, terminate fatally.
-A New York correspondent enlightens the
readers of a contemporary-with regard to fash?
ionable weddings in that city. He states that,
owing to the fashion of making rich and costly
presents io the bride becoming so gen?ural, and
also to the tact that it is now expected of peo?
ple accepting an invitation to attend a wedding
that they should bring presents, the number
of "regreta" has increased to an alan lin g ex?
tent. To remedy this State of things the cus?
tom is now being introduced in New York of put?
ting at the bottom of invitations, "No presents
will be received except from relatives. There
is an establishment m New Tork that makes a
business of renting ont to wedding parties

The Beaner, Death, has entered this aace happy
family, and stricken d iwn the lovely being in whom
BO many fond hopes and endearing affections
centred. Where once reigned light and gladness,
there is now weeping and the shadow of death.
Neve*, again upon earth shall that gentle voice send
a thrill of pleasure to the heart or that lobing coun?
tenance greet our longing eyes.
Amiable and lovely in character and deposition,
she was tho joy and solace of ber parents la their de?
clining \ears. But, alas I the fond hopes they had
cherishPd were soon to be withered. Death had
marked her for his own, and earth ooi.taina one
treasure lees, Heaven, one angel more.
Yet, blessed be God, there is a silver Using to the
cloud. Faith penetrates the gloom that surrounds
us, and bids us-benold our loved one lu the man?
sions prepared in Heaven for those who love God.
'.[hough not a professing Cbristion, hor blameless
life, Christian fortitude, and strict attention to re?
ligious dudes, testiflod to the possession of inward
grace, and give us ample assurance th: t she bad
chosen mat good part, which shall not bo taken
Fond parents mourn not then, as those without
hope. Your loved child will, as a ministering spin:,
hover around your earthly path, and itooompany
your winged soul . when you, through faith, shall bo
called to your home at the right hand of O od.
God gave this lovely flower
To bloom on earth awhile,
To give us light and gladness
By the brightness of her smile.
But when the bud had opened,
In woman's lovely bloom,
God took it up to Beaven,
Through tho portals of the tomb.
Aud there, in fields of glory,
Where angels love to stray,
Tho Saviour's smile shall give it ire,
Through an eternal day. A. A. 8.
