BLACKVILLE, S. C., December ll.-Blackville,
for several years past, has boon striving hard
to be the great en'.repol on the South Carolina
Railroad, between Charleston and Augusta;
and at every visit I have made here since the
war, I have ?uud tho place steadily progress?
ing. Mr. William Tecumseh Sherman and his
friends, your readers will recollect, left this
town rather the worse for their visit in Febru?
ary, 1865 ; not to put too tino a point upou it
they had entirely ruined tho place, and all that
in it was,-* raiu-oad, depot, stores, bouses*
and of COUVR3, ^Carried off movables of every
description. But Blackville hos rallied. The
old stores have been rennovated, those burned
have been replaced by new ones, four or five
I think ; and now, as cotton brings a fair
price, trade is decidedly looking up, and tho
planters generally, as well as tbo treedmon,
have all more or less money to speud, and feel
Tue'shorc orops of 186(1 and 18G7, together
with the low p.ice o? Uotwu last year, rotarJod
this recuperation somewhat. The corn crcp
of 1S66 baving almost entirely failed, a great
deal o? money had to bo expendud last year in
the purchase of the Btaff of lile a? high prices,
and more coru was .hipped to tins point last,
year than ever before. THIS year but very little
corn wap brought hero from C?arlo?tou. The
Freetluion'8 Bureau supplitd about 2000 bush?
els. This ye ir, as am, the farmers have made
corn enough lo do them-indeed, some of the m
will be able to sell.
In former times this district, ("county"
now, but in speaking ?f old times, I suppose
it will not be considere/ disloyal to say "dis?
trict"), raised meat enough, and even
a surplus to soil ; but since the war
this has been an impossibility; first, because
Mr. S he rm RU kdled all the Jive stock bc could
find ; and secondly, because the freedmen
have an unconquerable fondness for fresh
pork. Few h.<,vs made enough pork to last
mern beyond May.
The cotton crop in this vicinity is about the
same us last year. There woulu travo beeu a
good deal more, but for the caterpillar, which
is estimated to have taken about ouu-lourth.

dens. These gentlemen are all Democrats.
Tho soil in this vicinity is admirably adapted
for tho culture of cotton, and with the limited
means at their command, tho planters are
doing their utmost to developethe resources of
the country. Were money to bc had on better
terms, they thiuk thev could do a great deal
more, and indeed I havo no doubt of this my?
self. There is at present an immense amount
of dead capital, in thc shape of surplus and
idle lands, and any one who will devise a prac?
tical scheme lor turning these into money, or
raising money upon those as seenrity, would
unquestionably be a great benefactor to this
State. Thc people here are very anxious to
securo immigrant settlers. I was told that a
German, who arrived hythe Gauss last year,
has been working on a farm in this vicinity
during the present year, and stood the climate
admirably; and he is encouraged to continue.

CHIEF JUSTICE MOSES.
The Kcmoval of his Disabilities-Pro?
ceedings In Congres*.
I ho first bill that passed both houses ci Con?
gress and became a law by the President's ap?
proval since the opening of the present session
was the bill to relieve Chief Justice Moses of
bis political disabilities. We make the follow?
ing extracts from the official proceedings of
the Senate on Wednesday, the 9th instant, as
published in the Congressional Globe:
The Senate having taken up for considera?
tion the bill (S. No. 658; to relieve from disa?
bilities Franklin J. Moses, a citizen ol South
Mr. Robertson said: I desire that the bill
should pa ss for the following reasons: Judge
Moses was a State senator in South Carolina
for twenty-five consecutive years before and
during the war. At the end of the .var he was
elected one of the circuit judges of tho State.
Hi8 decisions wero satisfactory to both parties;
BO much so that upon tho reassembling of the
Legislature, after the passage of the recon?
struction act. he was elected by a largo majori?
ty Chief Jus tice of the 8tate ot South Caiolina,
and this by the Union men of thc State. That
conrt is in session at this time, and I may say
that the ends of justice in tho State of South
Carolina aro blocked in consequence ot the
court not having the proper presiding officer.
I hope, therefore, that thc Senate will consent
to pass this bill at profont without objection.
Mr. Davis. 1 move as an amendment to the
bill to insert after the words "South Carolina,"
in the fifth liue, the words "and all other citi?
zens of the State of South Carolina;" so that
the bill will read:
Be it enacted, ix., (two-thirds of each Ho uso
concurring therein,) That all political disabili?
ties imposod on Franklin J. Moses, a citizen of
South Carolina, a~id all other citizens of the
State of South Carolina, by reason of t j c- third
section of tho fourteenth article of tho Consti?
tution of tho United States, be and the same
are hereby removed.
Tho amendment was rejeetcd-yoas 9,
Mr. Davis. This bill would bo more accept
ablo to mo if tho amendment which 1 proponed
inui hoon adnritafl- but as it ?tondu. I ahall feel
myself constrained to vote against it upon this
ground : I hold that there is no Fourteenth
amendment to the constitution. Tho proposi?
tion which purports to bo the Fourteenth
amendment to tho constitution 1 hold has
never been ratified by three-fourths of the
States, and therefore it is no part of that in?
strument, and gives no authority to Congress
to pass any such measure.
The bill was ord red to be engrossed tor a
third reading, and was read the third time.
The question being taken by yeas and nays,
rasultod-yeas 4G, nays 6.
The President pro tempore. Two-thirds
having voted in tho affirmative, the bill is
In tho House of Representatives on tho
same day, Mr. Paino, from the Committee on
Reconstruction, reported the bill with the fol?
Mr. Paine. I am instructed by Ibo Commit?
tee on Reconstruction to ask that this bill be
put on its passage now, and after a brief ex?
planation I shall ask the previous question.
Mr. Moses has been lately elected Chiet Justice
of the State of South Carohua. He was for
twenty-five years a mcnibei of the Senato of
that State before and during the rebellion.
Since the rebellion he has been President of
the Senate and a Judge of thc Circuit Court.
Tho law under which he waB appointed Chief
Justice required him to qualify within thirty
days from the date ot hid appointment. He
was unable to do so because Congress has not
been in session for business since July last.
By a special act of the Legislature ol' South
Carolina, the time within which he might qual?
ify wa8 extended for fivo months. That timo
will expiro on the 29th day of this mouth, BO
that this bill, in order to bo of any avail to him
and tho S tato of South Carolina, must bo passed
at once. The removal ot disabilities in this
caso is recommended unanimous!v by the Sen?
ate of South Carolina, and, I belie VP, Dy all thc
members of the lower house of the Legislature
of that State. I submit that recommendation,
to be printed as a part of tho record in this
' case; and I also present, for tho same purpose,
a letter of Major-General Gauby to Geucral
Grant, and a letter of the Governor of South
Ciurolina, both ?ccommending the reliof of Mr.
Moses from his disabilities.
Mr. Payne then presented tho memoria
signed bv'noarly all tho members of the South
Carolina Legislature, and also thc following
BespecifuUy submitted to Hie Genera! of thr

Court ot Common Pleas and Goner.il Sjssions
of the State of South Carolina, and ha3 lately
been elected by thc Legislature chief justice
of the Supremo" Court of that State, udder the
new constitut.ou. Judge Moses was one of
the first to accept the conditions of tho acts of
reconstruction and to acl under thom, and
soon fterthoy went into operation he united
with Judges Glover and Aldrich, ol' tbe same
ootut, in making some practical suggestions in
relation to tho jury svstem established by
General Orders No. 32, of May 30, 18G7. T..o
last named gentleman subsequently changed
his ooursc, but the two former continued to
act consistently. Tho election by tho Legisla?
ture to the highest judicial office of the Stale
is regarded as a conclusive expression of thc
wishes of Hie people of South Carolina ; but it
is proper th il I shou'd add that Judgu Muses' j

HIE COLLISION ON HIE OHIO.
Appalling Details of thc Catastrophe
Thc Alternatives of Fire and Water
Bridal Parties and Clergymen Lost
Accidents and Incidents.
We gather from thc Western papers some in?
teresting incidents of the fearful collision on
the Ohio, between thc steamers United States
and America, on the 4th instant :
The collision occurred about 11.15 o'clock at
night. The America strucs the United States
a little ait the capstan, cutting deep into her
bow. The forward guards of the United States
were taken up with coal oil, a quality of freight
which requires to be carried where the air will
get at it. Almost simultaneously with the col?
lision, the flames arose from the bow of tue
United States, reaching up as high as her hur?
ricane roof. It flashed up like the explosion of
gunpowder. Tue dre ran up tho boat's stair?
way, and within a very few moments the whole
forward part of the boat was on fire, the
flames leaping up as high as thc top of her
chimneys. The wind was blowing up stream
and directly against the head of tbe United
States, and drove tho fire right into the cabin,
and it was not more than two minutes until it
extended to the aft end of the steamer, and
the whole cabin and upper dock of the boat
were in flames. Captain Wade, of the United
States, remained on tho roof of that steamer
until he was surrounded by flames. Ho es?
caped by jumping to thc boiio:-deck guards of
the America, when the boats came togothcr.
He says but for the fire he could have run the
boat ashore and saved everything.
A TERRIBLE ?LTSELAP.
The flames drove many of the passengers to
thc aft end of the United States, and m my took
refuge in tho yawl, whtch was suspended by a
derrick at the stern of tho boat. So many of
them crowded into this boat that the derrick
broke down and let tho yawl and thosoVho
wcro in it into the river. As many as twenty
or twenty-five persons were in the yawl when
the derrick fell, and it is snpposcd most of
them wore drowned. One of them, Captain
Joe McCammott. a well-known pilot, hold on
to tho yawl when it fell, and was finally res?
cued. He was found to bo very badly burned,
and his strength was almost exhausted when
assistance reached him.
THE BRIDAL PA UTI CS
on board lost everything but their sleeping
apparel. Calicoes took the place of elegant
vestments, ted worstod hoodB or bonnets, or
anything that would cover their feet and na?
kedness. Clothing was cone-elegant trous?
seau, which had cost so much time and trou?
ble in getting together, were lapped up in tho
hungry' flames. Money wae gone, and penni?
less, nearly naked, threo of tho newly-married
couples changed thou* warm beds for the icy
water in tho river; and half d3ad with fright,
and two-thirds frozen, they only roached tho
friendly shore to bo greeted by a piercing cold
wind. But at last they woro saved, and they
fell into thc bands of tho good Samaritans.
From tho shoro could be seen women, with
nothing but their robes de nuit to protect them,
nishintc nbont in tho fl >r?~- --?;r;r?
noip, motners witn tueir children m their arms
(most ot them babies) rushing about frantical?
ly. One mother, holding her baby in her arms,
ran to thc guards, but thc water soemed to her
only a chilly grave; then sho jumped in tho
cabin again, then to the guards. The last that
was seo i of her she was standing up with her
baby hugged closer to her in her awful death,
'burning up. The America drifted, or was
driven, to tho bank, anil a lady sprang from the
upper deck and clung to tho branch of a tree;
her daughter followod, and reached the same
branch, and their united weight breaking it,
they both fell back into *be water, but again
climbed upon the land. But, from thc Umted
States to thc opposite bank the scene was more
terrible, tho osiapes fewer. For two hundred
yards tho water seemed to bo on Aro, and in
that fiery deluge were womeu and children,
shrieking in thc horrors of the last agony.
Thirty-five women aie said to bo loat.
A 8TBU0CLE IN THE JAWS OF DEATH.
A gentleman with his sister, a lovely and ac?
complished young lady, were passengers on
tho United States. At the first shock tuo gen?
tleman was thrown from his bed clear on tho
floor. Hastily pulling on bis pantaloons, he
rushed to thc stateroom of his sister, burst open
the door, and seizing her in his arms, earned
her down on the main deck, whoro, procuring
a door shutter, ho threw it overboard ?nd leap?
ed after it with bis sister iu his arms. He
placed her securely on the shutter, and was
swimming behind, pushing it, with its precious
load, to tho shore, wheu, to his ho.Tor, a big,
burly, and able bodied man swam np, pushed
hissiatcroff the board, and climbed upon it
himself. The young Kiri sank with a scream,
and if she came to the surface it was so dark
and the confusion so great that he coul l not
lind bet-. Maddened at the dastardly act, he
mado after thc author, and soiziog bim by tho
throat, a struggle to tho death ensued. Thoy
rose and sunk togother, still struggling, and
when last seen wore grappling with each other.
Whether ci.hor waa saved or both wont down
together is not known. The sister sunk be?
neath the waves and was lost, but she was ter?
ribly avenged by her brother.
A TOUCHING APPEAL
was made by Miss Jones ti a gentlomau on
board. As tho wood-work was becoming too
heateu to boar, and the Hames were farcing
thoir way gradually into tho cabin, sho went to
him, saving: "Oh I Mr.-. you have talked
to mc this evening; you have danced with me;
you know who I am and where I carno from;
save mo! Oh, save mel Oh, save mel" ile
told her ho had a wifo to save, and could uot
help her. Poor girl, she is beyond earthly help
A PSANTIC HUSBAND.
One of tho gentlemen on board had the pre?
sence of mind to unlunjrc a door, which he
threw into the river, and after his wifo and he
had jumped in he placed her in position to
reach the shore. "Now, stay here, deal1," was
hie request, "until 1 can fix myself some way,
uud we can both bc saved." Tnaagine the hus?
band's agony, just as ho had procured some?
thing that would float, to sec a man swim to?
ward the frail support ot his wife and knock

A AV? ll Authenticated Case of the Pre?
mature Interment of a Lad j--Heart?
A New Orleans correspondent of tho Cin
cinnali Enquirer gives the following particu?
lars of a mont distressing affair:
I have just heard of tho most heartrending,
and yet unavoidable affair, which it has ever
been my lot to record, lt is nothing more
nor less thau the frightful reality of being
buried alive. A most estimable lady, Mrs.
Crane, whose husband is a bookkeeper in
Fleming & Co.'s drug store in this city, died
suddenly last July, of what was pronounced
sunstroke. She was a school teacher in one
of our most popular schools. In the aftornoon,
after EChool was out, she went to visit a
neighbor on Felicity street, and just as she
entered her friend's houso she fell insensible
and expired, to all appearance, in about two
nninures, thc doctor pronouncing it sunstroke.
Her body was interred tho next day at ten
o'clock , and her mother, au old lady about
fifty years of age, and her husband aud one
little son, went home almost broken-hearted,
and have since boen nearly distracted, being
at times unable to sleep, and in fact leading a
most miserable and disconsolate life; and well
they might, as the sequel will show, had tbey
known what they had done. Well, one night
last week tho mother, after passing a m tit
distressing day, fell asleep lute at night and
dreamed that her daughter had been buried
alive. She jumped up in a frantic state and
rushed to her son-in-law's chamber, crying
"My daughter is buried alive! Oh, mv
daughter is buried alive! What shall I do?"
To sleep any moro that night was ont of the
qucstiou ; she still crying that her daughter
was buried alive, w.ionevor her son-iu-law
would try to qu:ot her. At length tho propo?
sition was made to havo the budy disinterred,
the grave was opened aud the coffin raised.
Oh,what a horrible sight, met thoir viowl
Puu is powerless to portray the Hceno which
followed. Tho body which had been placed in
a metallic coffin, was turned over, the glass
covering tiie tuce was broken to adonis, thc
ends of her fingers being beaten aud battered
all to piecos; her hair torn out in haudfuls, a .ul
the ohroud torn in many places-all presen?
ting tho appearance of one of thc moat des
' perate struggles to froe herself from the terri
[ bio misfortune. Il' any of our readers could
have seen the relatives of this unfortunate la?
dy, when this condition of what they suu
Eosed was tho perpetual silent tomb had been
rought to light, it would have forced a tear
from thc most stolid and adamantine heart.
Mrs. Stephen A. Douglas.
On Sunday I was walking in the neighbor?
hood ot General Grant's house when I saw
Mrs. Major Wiiliams, lato Mrs. Stephen A.
Douglas, exchanging grootm^s with General
Uraut, and descend at her gate, accompanied
by her husband. The houso that Mr. i>ougIas
presented to his wife before hor mirria^e

Pedro Martelle, an old Spaniard, in the Island of St.

as being true, for I have followed the sea for over
forty years, most of th? tinto doing business with
