LONDON, November 29.-The Loudon Times
and Paris correspondents of other papers have
lately given currency to rumors that the bealth
ol Napoleon is failing, and public confidence
nae, in consequence, been somewhat disturbed.
These rumors have been officially contradicted
from Paris, yet it is well understood that with?
out positive illness the Emperor declines to
G take his usual active exercise, and shows signs
of decaying strength and mental apathy. The
policy of his government seems just now to be
to make a demonstration of vigor against the
opposition; to render the latter unpopular, and

Much indignation has been caused among

contrary to precedents established by Ameri?
cans themselves, and excludes claims undoubt?
edly well founded, and declares if this report is
trae the convention is a capitulation, and Par?
liament will never eatiction it. A writer in the
Observer takes the same view of tho subject,
and discasses it at length, citing many autho?

The Murder of B. F. Randolph-Action
ot* thc Senate-Speeches by tUe itt -
COLUMBIA, November 30.- IN THE SENATE, J.
J. Wright, of Beaufort, offored the following
preamble and resolutions :
Wltereas, The Senate bas hoard, with thc
most profound sorrow and regrot, ot tho death
of Hon. Benjamin Franklin Randolph, lato a
senator from the County of Orangoburg, who,
m tho prime of manhood and full vigor of in?
to, lect, fell, pierced by the bullets of an assas?
sin, o i Friday, tho 16th day of October, 1868
Resolved, That in his death tho Senate has
been deprived of o.ie of its most esteemed and
valued members; of one who, in his privato
friendships, was affectionate aud stoadfasl;
and who. as a public man, was over tho ardent,
bold and outspoken champion of haman lib?
erty and human rights; who, whilo over main?
taining his owu dignity and self-respect, never,
even in the hen of debato, forgot tho courtesy
that was due to an opponent; of ono who, in
his entire career, public and private, wa? a
representative man of Iiis timo aud the people.
.Rt sot ced, That these resolutions bo entered
upon the jourual of thc Senate, and that a copy
thereof, attested by the President and Clerk,
and appropriately engrossed, bo forwarded to
tho afflicted relatives ol' tho deceased, with the
expression of our sincero sympathy and con?
dolence with thom in this terrible bereave?
J. J. Wright spoke as follows:
Mr. Preside fit and Gen'/tmen of the Senate
Hie preamble and resolutions which I proseut
to this honorable body are presented for the
purpose of showing that respect which is duo
io our deceased and much lamented member,
the Hon. B. F. Randolph. He was a mau who
merited respect m all hid actions, uot only in
this Senate, but through the whole course of
his life. Were it deemed necessary, I might
give a brief history of his life; but it is enough
tor me to say that thrre is no porco:i of his ago
who has passed away and left a brighter record
than he. It shows that from his boyhood til!
tin time ho fell bj the hand of a wicked assas?
sin his whole life was spont iu striving to fur?
ther tho cause of human progress and liberty.
He was ayoung man, hut one who was bloused
with superior talents, and, to his honor it can
truly bo said, that his talents were always em?
ployed in dotug good. Ho seemed always to
have one great object in view, and that was
to unite all classos of thc people, and
moko them happy. He always mot ovcry poi?
son pleasantly, and oven his bitterest oppo?
nents acknowledged that he was a man of warm
heart, gentlemanly de ortment, a philanthro?
pist ana a scholar." The tone of all his speeches
was mild and conciliatory. Ho believed in equal
and exact justice to ali men, and from that lino
of policy he sever deviated. His career as
chaplain in the Union army, as agent of the
educational department of the Freedmen s Bu?
reau, as a member of the Constitutional Con
ventioD, and as a memoer of the Senate, com?
mends itself, without any eulogiuni on my
part, to all those who are desirous of seeing
peace, tranquillity and justice established in
our midst, and our common country to be the
banner of all nations desiring human liberty
and justice to be meted out to all classes of
persons. i3ut he has gone; his labors upou
earth have ended. Wo look around and wc miss
one from our midst; yes, we behold a vacant
chair. No more shall we behold him there and
hear his strong and firm voice m defence nf
those pure principles whtch he always so earn?
estly and ably advocated.
When wo reflect that ho had fallen, there is
a thrill of sadness that steals over our frames,
in memory of bim who has died a martyr to
our country's cause. But, while be hy the
hand of the assassin has fallon, we rejoice, that
the cause for which he died still lives, and
will live as long as timo shall last. It is a
noble thought to cherish, that when martyrs
die, their cause lives. .
"For freedom's battle once begun,
Bequeathed from blooding sire to sou,
Ol ten lost is ever won."
It is not a novelty in the history of the world
for men like the Hou. B. F. Randolph to
be assassinated, tor there are always those who
are opposed to human progress, equality aud
freedom, and those who will resort to any
measures to arrest the spread of the eternal
and immutable principles of right. The
world's history shows, that in consequence ol'
persons contending lor tho right, they have
not only been brutally shot down, but burner]
at the stako, and tortured in every conceivable
way by tho euemies of thc cause iu which they
were engaged. But wc should iguore that
brute force cannot crush out thought as it can
Ufe; and tbat oppression and tyranny cannot
causo tho true, the loyal and the br ive, to
turn asida from the path ot" duty andrectitudc. i
Oar worthy senator was a person who was
very muoL beloved by the penile, in consc
quance of his untiring labors for their welfare.
He loved tho people, and he loved his country.
I feel assured that if it had been made plain
to h m that to go to Abbeville and talk to the
people, and instruct them iu relation to their
doty to themselves and their couatrv, that he
was to fall by the assassin's band, thai
would have cone; and I also believe that
he permitted to be in our midst, and spei
this heartrending and lamentable affair
would utter, in that classic voice : Pro pc
He was hated by a few, and no doubt
assassinated simply because of his great
of truth and justice, and the energy and
manifested in their defence. If he were
sassinated on account of his principles anc
cause in which he was engaged, this is !
cient to clearly demonstrate tho weakness
unholiness and tho falsity of tho cause of
opponents, as violence is never required tc
force truth and holiness.
In the person of the Hon. B. F. Randi
this Senate has lost one of its ablest labor
and the country an able champion of libe
He seemed to fully comprehend tho fact
Our State had been very much broken,

were required. In every sense of the word
was a master workman. Many attempts v
made by his enemies to villify und blast
character, so that they might destroy
wholesome influence which he exerted am
thc pcoplo ; but ho soared so high above tl
that their efforts wero in vain. He IB di

THE POLLARD MURDER.
The fact has already been briefly mentionel
by telegraph that James Grant, who shot H.
Rives Pollard in Richmond, had been admitted
to bail in tho sum of $10,000 to answer at the
February term. We take the following from
the Richmond papers :
Before Mr. Grant had becD released on bail,
Mr. E. A. Pollard made his appearance in the
court-room'and stated to tho Mayor that he
expected to be able to provo by two witnesses,
who overheard the conversation, that Mr. Sto?
ver, a friend of tho Grant family, had called
upon his brother at his house on the night be?
fore the publication ot the paper, and endeav?
ored to prevail upon him not to publish the
article. His brother said to him that the press
had never felt tho least delicacy about publish?
ing anything iu regard to members of his fam?
ily, and had dragged them all remorselessly
before tho public, and had never considyrcd it
wrong to pillory their names in full, whenever
anything occurred with which rumor remotely
connected them; and this course on the part of
the public and tho press had completely soured
him, and he had determined to spare nono iu
Tuturc who should lay themselves liable to pub?
lic censure or criticism. "Yon may te'l Mr.
Grant, however," said he, "that I will publish
any explanation ho may chose to mako, with?
out, a single altcration.no muter whit he may
say; hut I have f irly examined the facts in the
case, and find they warrant thc publication,
and I will not suppress it." This conversation
was overheard by a lady in thc house and an?
other person. His brother did not hear any?
thing further from the Grant family.
Mr. Pollard then re narked to" the Mayor
that he had no idea the matter would be" so
promplly di Rinsed of this morning, or he would
have been present with his counsel, Judge
dump, and the witnesses referred to, whom
he hoped might bc heard before thc pris mer
should be admitted to bail.
Tho Mayor replied that he would give his
witnesses and counsel a hearing to-morrow at
Mr. W. K. Watts, of thc firm of Putnam &
Watts, signed his bail-bond for $10.000, and
James Grant went forth into the sunlight of
tho world again-and waa borne to his father's
residence in a carriage which had been provid?
ed in anticipation of his release.
James Marshall Hanna, the associate editor
of the Southern Opinion, makes the following
statement in reference to his connection with
tho article which ie generally bebeved to havo
been the cause of Mr. Pollards death:
I was the associate editor of the Southern
Opinion; as such I wrote the most of the
original articles that have appeared in its
columns. Much 1 wrote of my own volition,
and more ? wrote by special direction of the
editor-in-chief. I prepared that article which
cost thc editor bia life. It was prepared by
bis direction. Afterwards, convincod that its
publication would be impolitic if not unsafe,
I asked that tho article might be modided,
expungod altogether, or the names left blank,
or filled with initials that would have left the
case without a ' local habitation." Tho article
bal passed from thc control of the associate;
it was thon tho property of the editor-to
print or withhold. He was responsible, not 1;
a.id no matter how much I had desired the
assumption, H. Rives Pollard always as
sumod, and never evaded, thc- responsibility of
every linc and paragraph printed in the Opin?
ion. "I am responsible!" was his invariable
response to applicants for redress.
No; tie blood of ri. Hives Pollard, our late
associate, is not upon our hands. Wo are in?
nocent in tho sight of God, and shall prove
ourself innocent ia the opinion of men. I
never consented lo tho descent of the Southern
Opinion from tho lofty pinnacle it once held; I
never willingly prostituted its columns, though
I have at timi's prepared paragraphs for inser?
tion that 1 know caused me kouicr pain than it
did those for whom they were intondod.
Tine Foreign Cotton Competition.
|From the New York Daily Bulletiu.]
Tho cffortB of tho government and capitalista
of Englaud to exton 1 the area of cotton culti?
vation in other countries beside tho Un ?tod
States, show no abatement of energy ami en?
terprise. In ovory part of tho globe where
cotton eau bo raised, English capitalists and
brains stimulate its culture, and supply, as fur
as can bc, all the deficiencies arising from the
peculiar situation of the soil and thc cultiva?
tors. To emancipate themselves irom dopen*
dence upon Amen cm cotton ia an object to
which English manufacturers attach a high
degree of importance. Upon tho aucoosa of
theso efforts they regard the question of tho
monopoly of the cotton supply as depondcut;
and to prevent tho restoration of the former
supremacy of tue Un.tod Stales in the produc
tiou of tho great staple, they spare no oxponse
or trouble. Tho immense political influence of
thc government promotes thc efforts of private
individuals, and English officials and consular
ageuts iu every part of the world to carry out
tho designs ot tho Manchester Cotton Supply
The latest information relative to tin cu'
turo of cotton in ot.icr countries besides the
United States during the year 19(J8 are reas?
suring. A company ins been foi med in Mel?
bourne for the. cultivation ot cotton and sugar
in the Feojeo Islands, thc soil ami climate of
whic i are said tobe favorable tor tli3 growth
ot theso products. lu th) cotton province of
San Paulo, Brazil, tba product lias increased
from 7027 arrobas iu 18JA-5 to (JUJ,ODO arrobis
in 1?J7-8. For the vena 18J8-9 a yield of no
lesa than OOO OOO arrobas is atiticipned. THO
British consular agent?: in the United States
of Colombia report that, notwithstanding tho
admira bio capabilities of soil and climate, no
cotton is grown in tho interior, owing to tho
indolence of the natives, and also owing to the
unsettled political condit.on of the country.
But from thu consular districts of Madelina a
small supply will bo obtaiued. Tho cotton
tree is indigenous and perennial in this region,
and offers almost boundless returns. When
tho crop is picked thc tree is cut down, and
sprouts up again for next soason. Tho tree
bears cotton tor twenty years. With a settled
foi m of government offering security to labor
and capital, it ia estimated that immense re?
turns could bo procured from this region.
From India tho exporta for 1807-8 show a
decrease of ?b'.OOi) bales as compared with the
season last year. This falling off is attributed
partly to the oarly setting in of the rainy
season in the central provinces, and partly to
large supplies s Mit to the Northwestern pro?
vinces and to Bengal for native consumption.
Tho area cultivated is larger, however, than
last year, and it is anticipated that later ac?
counts may show an undiminished supply for
exportation later in the season. Loid Mayo,
thc new Governor-Goueral of India, in re?
sponse to a committee of the Cotton Supply
Association, promiacd to promote and extend
the cultivation of cotton in India, and facilitate
its speedy conveyance to Great Britain.
Americans have still too deep an interest in
their great staple to bo indifferent to the efforts
that ia in progresa lo stimulate competition
with it by thu various cotton producing coun?
tries in the world. That these eflbrta aro to a
largo degree euee ;saful, and that they promise
no less important results in tho tuture than in
thc past, is only too apparent. But the coutrast
between tho aciion ot govornme.it and capital?
ists of England and of these of tho United
Stales ai e not favorab.o to tho American char
actor. It wa are ever t ? recover our former
cotton ascouaouey it w.ll manifestly be through
individual enterprise exercised irrespective of
co-operative or government aid. Thia course,
perhaps, ma bo moro in accordance with the
prevailing typo of Am rican charaeicr, but i tis
ccnai.i that wiso siiiteauiuns.iip demanda at
least tho removal of all impediments to the
culture of cotton in too Southern States.

THE COBA DEVOLUTION.-Thc New York Post
publishes a letter from a Cuban gentleman,
who analyzes the reports sent to this country
from Havana, of the political condition of the
island and tho movements of tho Spanish
troops. Ho shows that thc authorities have
been much moro embarrassed by the strength
and vigor of the insurrectionary party than
they have confessed, and it seems probable,
even, from this analysis of the government re?
ports, that the Spanish troops have met with
serious reverses, and that tho insurrection is
extending to all parts of the island. Thc writer
One obj jct of the insurrectionists, as they
profess, is to extirpate slaver., which has long
boen opposed and regarded as an evil by the
Cuban party, as it is called, to distinguish it
from the Spanish party. Another of their ob?
jects is to establish the independence of Cuba.
1'liey complain that they have suffered from
Spain preci/wly the wrongs which thc Ameri?
can colonies suffered from England. They
have had Spaniards of no character put over
them; ever; avenue for an honorable public
career ha? been closed to men of Cuban birth;
all thc offices of honor or profit are monopo?
lized by Spaniards, and they havo to bear an
oppress!ro burden of taxation, without receiv?
ing any benefits. For these reasons they in
tend to assert their independence, to expel tho
Spaniards, and to set up a ropnblic of their
own; md Cubans in this city, who aro m cor?
respondence with tho insurrectional y leaders,
express a belief that the movement will suc?
Mus. HABRiEr BEECH BR S rows CONVEETED
WO hear from Floridi that lire. Beecher Stowe,
tho authoress of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," who a
year or two ago hought a place 01 the St.
John's Bi ver, near Jacksonville, sa vs she wants
to live long enough to wnto another book lo
correct tho mistakes of "Unelo Tom," and
show that a great blunder was committed wbon
slavery was abolished. From original condi?
tion of sentimental attachment to thc negro
sho has lapsed into a state ot unconquerable
dislike aud aversion. She will not have them
about her, either in doors or out. She turned
them ali off her place, and allows no ono with
a black skin to approach hor. We are told that
an acquaintance of ours sought to send her a
message by a black stewardess on board a
steamboat, but sho refused to allow the negro
to approach her. Her mind, as we have been
credibly informed, is very much inflamed
against tho nearro; and this, probably, from
comparing their efficiency and aptitu ie as
laborers and servants with that of thc North?
ern whites. Her fancy picture of the African
has boen spoiled, and her sentimental affection
has turnod, in consequence, to violent aver?
sion. Like Squccrs. tho milk of human sym?
pathy in hor bosom has all turned to curds and
