lishes an account of this gigantic enterprise,
states that Forney bas latterly bas?me exceed?
ingly liberal in his political views touching the
South, so much so as quite to put to shame
those who have all along regarded themselves

-Tho confession of Atzerodt, made the
night before his execution for the murder of
President Lincoln, has just beon given to the
public. He says that he consented to aid in
the abduction of the President, in conjunction
with Booth, Harold, Wood, Payne, Snrratt,
O'loughlin and Arnold, but that he refused to
take an active port ia the murder. About tho
middle of March Booth heard that tho Presi?
dent was to visit a carno, and lay in wait for
him on Long Bridge all night, but ho did not
appear. All was then quiet until the night of
the 14th of April, when Booth made tho re?
mark that "Lincoln ought to be killed," and pro?
posed a plat for the murder. To this Atzerodt
distinctly avers that he refused to consent . Ho
says, however, that "Booth appointed me and
Harold to kill Johnson. In going down the
'.street I told Booth we could not do it. Booth
said Harold had more courage and he would
doit. Harold and 1 weie on Pennsylvania
avenue together. I told him I would not do
it, and should not KO to my room for fear he
?would disturb Mr. Johnson. Ho left me to go
for Booth. This was after 9 o'clock. " Atze
rodt 6&ys that ho knows nothing about Spang
ler's rope, and believes him to bo innocent.
His confession is very.incoheront, and only es?
tablishes the fact that he took no active part in
the crime for which he suffered the penalty of
death. A similar statement was made by Sam?
-A New York Herald correspondent says it
is certain that General Schofield will ro nain

ly fitting up his newly pur-'hasod fllty thou?
sand dollar house to cntortain thoso who wish
to pay cocrt to the Secretary of the Navy.
Now 'hese littlo appointments from the army
and navy are not to the liking of cither branch-.
General George H. Thomas freely asserts that
it is a very bad policy td introduce tho shoul?
der Btrap element into the Cabinet, while Adr
mirai Farragut, with "equal soundness, depre?
cates the accepting o? the naval portfolio
by Admiral Porter. It will be remember?
ed that it has been one" of the most cher
Jsbed rules of West Point and Annapolis
- that the branches of the public service rep?
resented bj their graduates ebould hold them?
selves entirely aloof from political life, main?
taining their, positions as the great sturdy
i conservative element in the country. Farra
I gut and Thomas may be rightfully considered
! in their respective branches as representing
the highest embodiment cf this principle. Both
of them do Dot hesitate to say that it is the
1 hist step towards the corruption of the army
. and navy and the increased corruption of polil
. ical Ufe. Secretary Seward, gossips this cor?
respondent, is doing his uttermost to retain

ever, but, still determined to have a Seward

WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 18W.
Esparto Grass-A New Crop tor our Rice
1 ' ? .Fields.
In the Esparto grass we are confident
that there has been found another new
, means of adding to the strength and power
of the State. One more golden opportu?
nity is given us of proving that, with this
glorious climate and this fertile soil, we
never need depend for our prosperity on
cotton and rice alone.
The Esparto grass of which we speak is
, already the successful rival of rags, as a
material for the manufacture-of paper. It
i is no more difficult to grow than rice or hay;
but it often brings in the market as much
fes seventy dollars of our currency per ton.
The production of the grass has inoreased
with great rapidity, and it is now consumed
to the value of about one million of dollars
monthly, on thc continent and in Great
Britain. New mills are being erected and
fitted with machinery exclusively adapted
to its use, while old mills are changing
their machinery for the same purpose.
There is no doubt that its general adoption
is but a question of time.
In the United States the Esparto grass is
as yet unknown; but the high price of rags
and the failure of almost all materials,-ex?
cept, perhaps, maple wood,-used in their
stead for the manufacture of paper, which
has now become one of the leading com?
mercial interests of the world, will soon
induce our quick-witted Northern paper
manufacturers to try this new material.
As its name deno'es, the Esparto grass
is of Spanish origin, being now extensively
grown in Spain, Portugal and the French
colonies in Africa. The questions for us
to settle are, whether it will prove a profit- !
able crop, and whether it can be grown in
The cultivation of tho Esparto is no
more difficult than that of hay, and it brings
three times thc price. There is, then, but
littlo doubt that it will be very profitable.
This is tho first point to be determined, and
we are sure that in this State it could be
grown with perfect success. Tho writer
has not only seen the Esparto taken from
the bale and put through all the processes
of manufacture into fine printing and wri?
ting papers, but he has also seen the grass
growing, and is confident that our climate
and soil will produce it at least as well as
the countries in which it is now cultivated.
The Esparto grass yields to the paper
maker nearly as much pulp as average rags
yield. It is no moro difficult than rags to
work up, and in many respects, although
not all, it is to be preforred to them.
Thus, after two hundred years of experi?
ment and the trial of a thousand different
substances, just when the civilized world
feels its necessity the most, a perfect sub?
stitute for rags has been found, and will be
used wherever a book is read and the art
of writing known.
It is for us to determine whether the
Iberian peninsula and the North of Africa
shall be allowed to monopolize all the profit
of this new crop, or whether wo who are
in the same latitude and enjoy a more equa?
ble climate shall take advantage of our sit?
uation, and make South Carolina produce
thc raw material to supply tho paper mills
of the United Sates, and perhaps of a part
We do not believe that the prize will
escape our grasp, and we take pleasure in
informing our readers that some enterpris?
ing gentlemen in this city have already
sent to Spain and to Algeria for the Es?
parto seed. When it arrives, which it is
expected to do in time for planting this sea?
son, we will at once announce the fact. We
have now some samples of the Esparto seed
and of pulp made from it. These may be
seen at the office of THE NEWS.
The City Election*.
We oan hardly believe that the bill of Mr.
Corbin, which proposes to validate tho re?
cent Municipal elections in this city, will
be permitted to become a law, whatever the
bitterness of personal feeling, or however
sharp the crack of the party whip. The
bill is as unnecessary as it is unjust, and
the Legislature will surely realize, before it
is too late, the serious importance of what
tb ey are asked to do.
If Mr. Lesesne, the Democratic candidate
for Mayor, were in office, and his election
were contested by tho Radical candidates,
we could understand that the anger of de?
feat would tempt the Legislature to over?
ride the law, to dispense with the courts
and judiciary, to set aside the tribunals
n hich they themselves had formed, and to in
8<al the defeated candidates without giving
the law a chauoe lo take its oourse. But
in this case there is no such excuse. Neil ber
Democrat nor Republican took his peat; the
election was contested before thc Board of
Aldermen as prescribed by law, and that
board, consisting, with but three excep?
tions, of persons holding office by military
appointment, declared that there was no
legal eleotion. Mr. Pillsbury and his friends
commenced proceedings, as they had a per
feet right to do, for the^mrpose of forcing
the City Council to declare their election.
A writ of mandamus isBued, and Council de?
clared that at the November elections Mr.
Pillsbury and the Republican candidates
for ' Aldermen received (he highest number
of votes, repeating, however, their previous
declaration that there was no legal election.
The courts were at once open to Mr. Pills?
bury and the Aldermen declared to have
received the highest number of voles. There
was no legal difficulty in their way, and yet
they leave the courts and ask the legisla?
ture to take the matter into its own bands
and to declare that the Republican candi?
dates were duly elected, notwithstanding
the irregular manner in which (he election
was conducted, in spite of the frauds which
are known to have been practiced, and in
the teeth of a protest signed by our most
responsible and trustworthy cit:70ns.
We say that this conduct cannot be justi?
fied either by law and precedent, or by par?
ty necessity. The act under which the
elections were held provides a special tri?
bunal for trying contested cases, and if that
is not enough, there are (he courts of the
State, in which the whole case may be tried
and finally determined. If the courts are
corrupt, let the judges be impeached and
removed. Let it not be said that the cause
of the Republican candidates is so weak
that they fear to have it heard before Re?
publican judges, and repudiate the decision
of their own tribunal-the Republican City
Council. Party, whatever its obligations,
should in ihis case haye nothing to do with
the action of tho Legislature. The Mayor
of Charleston, who will hold office until this
election question is decided, is a moderate
Republican. AU the Aldermen save three
are Republicans, and four or five of them
are men of color. Thc city has a Republi?
can government now. What more does the
Legislature require ? The city is tranquil;
there is every prospect of an improvement
in trade and general business; we can
scrape along very well with the Municipal
government whioh we have.
All that wc ask of the Legislature is (bat
the question of who were elected Mayor and
Aldermen iu November last, shall bo deter?
mined b/ the courts of law, and not by par?
tisan legislation. We arc prepared to ac?
cept the decision of the courts of the State,
whatever it may bc; but we must oppose to
the last the unusual and unjust course
of passing an act which shall seat party
candidates, by dedaring that eleotion
to be legal and valid, whioh from the begin?
ning was big with fraud, irregularity, and
patent and manifest wrong.

OF*ICE OF TJDOLPHO W?LPE,
Sole Imp?t ter of the Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps,
Ho- 22 Bcavcr-strcct.
NEW TOBE, November 3. 18C8.
To the People of the Southern States ?
WHEN THE PURE MEDICINAL RESTORATIVE,
now so widely knov.n as WOLFE'S SCHIEDAM
SCHNAPPS, was introduced into the world under
the endorsement of four thousand leading members
of the medical profession some twenty years ago, its
proprietor was well aware that it could not wholly
escape the penalty attached to all new and ueefn^
preparations. He, therefore, endeavored to invest i(
with strongest possible safeguard against counter?
feiters, and to render all attempts to pirate it diffl
cult and dangerous. It was submitted to distin?
guished chemists for onalysis, and pronounced by
them tho purest spirit ever manufactured. Its puri?
ty and properties having been thus ascertained, sam?
ples of the article were forwarded to ten thousand
physicians, including all the leading practitioners in
the United States, for purposes of experiment. A
circular, requesting a trial of the preparation and a
report of thc result, accompanied each specimen.
Four thousand of the most omiuont medical men in
the Union promptly responded. Their opinions of
the article were unanimously favorable. Such a
preparation, they said, had long been wanted by
thc profession, as no reliance could be placed on the
ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which were
more or less adulterated, aud therefore -unfit for
medical purposes. The peculiar excellence and
strength of the oi of juniper, which formed one of
the principal ingredients of the Schnapp?, together
with an unalloyed character of the alcoholic ele?
ment, give it. in tho estimation of the faculty, a
marked superiority over every other diffusive stimu?
lant as a diuroiic, tonic and restorative.
These satisfactory credentials from professional
men of the highest rank were published in a con?
densed form, and enclosed with each bottle of the
Schnapps, as one of tho guarantees of its genuine?
ness. Other precautions against fraud were also
adopted; a patent was obtained for the article, the
label was copyrighted, a.fae simile of tho propiielor's
autograph slgmture was attached to each label and
cover, his name and that of the preparation were e m?
bossed on thc bottles, and the corks were sealed with
his private seal. No arricio hod evor been sold in
this country under tho name of Schnapps prior to
the introduction of Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic
Schnapps, In 1851; and tho label was deposited, as
hie trade mark, In the United States District Court
for the Southern District of Now York during that
It might be supposed by persons unacquainted
with the d iring character of the pirates who prey
upon the reputation of honorable merchants by vend?
ing deleterious trash under their name, that tho pro?
tections so carefully thrown around these Schnapps
would have precluded the introductions and salo of
counterfeits. They seem, however, only to have
stimulated tho rapacity of impostor-, The trade
mark of th2 proprietor has been stolen ; the Indorse?
ment which his Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps alone
received from the medical profession has been
claimed by mendacious humbugs; his labels and
bpttles have been imitated, his advertisements para?
phrased, his circulars copied, and worse than all,
diehonorablo retailers, alter disposing of thc genuine
contents of his bottles, have Ailed them up with
common gin, tho most deleterious of all liquors1, and
thus made his name and br mil a cover for poison.
'J ho public, thc medical profession and the sick,
for whom tho Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps is pre?
scribed as a remedy, aro equally intereste 1 with tho
proprietor in thodctocliou and suppression of these
uolari?us piactices. Tho genuine article, manuiac
lured at tho establishment of tho undesigned in
Schiedam, Holland, is distilled iron a barley of thc
finest quality, and flavored with an OBS on ti ul extract
of the berry of the Italian ju: lptr, of unequalled pu?
rity. Dy a proco- ? unknown in the preparation of
any other liquor, it ts treed from every ac-imonlous
and corrosive element.
Complaints have boen received from the leading
physicians and families in tho southern States of
the halo of cheap imitations of thc Schiedam Aro
Uiutic Schnapps in thoso marlie's; and travellers,
who are in thc habit ot using it as an antidote to the
baneful influence of unwholesome river water, tes?
tily that cheap gin, put up in Schiedam bottles, is
frequently palmed off upon the uuwary. I he
sgonts of thc undersigned have bcou requested to
institute iuqulries on thc subject, and to forward to
him the names of such parties as th o y may ascer?
tain to bo engaged in thc atrocious system of decep?
tion. lu concludion, the undersigned would say that
hu has produced, from under tho baud* of the mo>t
distingui'hca men of science in America, proots un
answerable of the purity and medicinal excel?
lence of the Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps ; that
he hos expended miny thousand dollars in sur?
rounding it with guaranteer and safeguards, which
ho designed should pro.cet tho public and himself
against fraudulent imitations; that ho has shown lt
to bo tho ouly liquor in tho world that can be uni?
formly depended upon ai unadulterated; thit he has
challenged investigation, analysts, comparison and
experiment in all its forms; and from every ordeal
the preparation whi h bears his namo, seal and tracie
murk, has come off triumphant. Ho, therefore, feels
it a dutyhe owes to Ins tellow-cit'z ns generally, to
the medical profession and tho sick, to denounce
and expos? the charlatans who counterfeit these evi?
dence* of identity, and ho colls upon tho press and
the public to aid him in his efforts to remedy so great
The following letters and certificates from the
