OPENING OF THE SPANISH OOBTES-ADDRESS OF
MADRID, February 12.-The Constituent Cor?
tos formally opened its sessions yesterday with
great ceremony. Th6 city was profusely deco?

were in the streets, flags were flying, aud tho
t\aj regarded as a holiday. The president of
tho ministry, Marshal Serano, delivered a con?
gratulatory address to the deputies.

"The nations of Europe, in attaining a higher
degree of civilization, threw off the traditional
bonds which bad-fettered the public mind.
Spain delayed for a long time following tho ex
"ample of her neighbors. Sho now calls on her
representatives to construct a new edifice.
The revolutiou has achieved a bloodk'ss victo
ty. The strength of tho nation has not been
impaired, but tho extravagance of the former
administration has disorganized and emba?
'mased its finances. The government relies
upon the Cortes to remedy this by economical
reforms aud changes in the administration, by
wise legislation in regard tc? tho public debt
and paymeut ot interest thereon, and by econo?
mizing the expenses of tho army and navy.
The fundamental principles of radical liberal?
ism which had been adopted in relation to re?

the action of our deputies.
"Our revolution here is not responsible for
the rising in Cuba. That is duo to the errors

[FIIOH AN OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.] i
SPAETAirsuno, February 10.-Your corres?

and well porlrayed some of thc strong points
in our position and resources. Perhapa you
may be willing to h ?ar occasionally from ono

ing tho "Pacolet" letter to which he refere, and
may, perhaps, repeat some items whicli were
in it. There is a remarkable pissage iuLie
ber'sreport (1857), which shows bow ho was
impressed by a professional 6urvcy of thc
mineral resourses of our section:
"There is great reason to believe that, ?it a
future day, tho northeast coiner of Spartan
borg and the- nortuwe. 'ern portion of York,
with a small portion of Union, will form a high?
ly important mining diBtric1;, m which the iron
oro beds, to which it ha* hitherto owed its
whole reputation as a mino tl legion, will form
tho least important resources of wealth and
prosperity. The population will be entirely
changed, and tho scattering shanties of irou
.re quarrymen and charcoal burners will cive
place to tho thriving villages of industrio.*
mechanics and miner*. This cistrict would be
enclosed bv a semi-circle, having the point
where the Broad R'.ver enters our State for its
centre, and the distance thence to King's Moun?
tain as radius, and would therefore cover about
eighty square miles. Such a remark may ap?
pear to many readers to be overdrawn and too
highly colored. Yet it is the result of a careful
inspection of tho region."
This eastern part of our country is noarlv ?ii

are found associated with tho mica slate,
which overlies the gneiss in thw part of tho

ible sandstone) formation boro Ol about
eighty square miles of this rock iv t io State,
forty square miles are in Spartanb'L T- This
rock is elsewhere (as in Brazil) found aaouciat
ed with diamonds. These iron regions attracted
attention even in the revolution. Early in this
century a furnace was in operation near thc
Cowpen's battle ground, which is sixteen miles
northeast of tho courthouse, in 1832, the
company selected a beautiful shoal on Paco?
let, eight miles east of our town, and built
the Rolling's Mills. Of this company, Simpson
Bobo, of our bar, was an original stockholder,
aud in addition, has been for many years tho
agent of the South Carolina iron Manufactur?
ing Compauy. Tho Rolling Mills are connected
with the Cowpeas Furnace, twelve milos dis?
tant, by a little railroad with horse power, per?
haps the largest road of the kind ia thc country.
lu this part of the county is thc Bivingsvillo
Cotton Factory, on Lawson's Fork, four miles
east of the courthouse. It stands on tho site
of an old iron mill, burnt in the Revolution. It
was built by a company chartered in 1837, with
a capital of one hundred thousand dollar?.
The present proprietors have built einco tho
war a magnificent brick building noar the old
wooden one, but higher up on the hill Bide, so
as to bo above the roach of high water. J

THE CHARLESTON ORRHAN ASYL UM.
[From the Wasrungioo. Chronicle.]
We noticed some clays ago the appeal of tho
Sisters of Mercy, of Charleston, South Caroli?
na, for an appropriation wherewith to .rebuild
their orphan asylum, destroyed by our guns in
tho bombardment of tnat city during tke war.
Their petition, as we then stated, was strongly
backed up by such men as Generals Sickles and
Gilmore, Admiral Dablgren, and various other
officers, some of whom, as sick or wounded
prisoners, shared the unsolicited beneficence
of these sisters, who Were to thom in their
distress veritable "ministering angels." So
high ara t he testimonials to their good deeds
deeds performed without respect to creed,
country, or relation to the unhappy strife then
in progress-that their petitiou seems to us to
bave a peculiar claim to ? favorable hearing.
Ia addition to the testimonials heretofoj e re?
ferred to, we present the following affidavit,
which tells its own story :
Slate of Connecticut, County of New Haven, ss.
I hereby certify that I, F. R. Jackson, (for?
merly a sergeant in Company F, ?Seventh Con?
necticut volunteer infantry), lost my left arm
in battle on James Island, South Carolina,
June 16, 1862, and was then aud there taken
prisoner by the enemy. I was carried
from the battle-field to Charleston, S. C., June
19,1862, and was there placod in a building
known aa -Mart Hospital," on KiDg or Queen
street, (am uncertain which), in which were
confined all of Ihe prisoners token Tsoa 16.
who were seriously wounded. Soon after our
arrival in Cheleston, we were vieited by Sister
M. Xavier, ascompanied Dy another Sister of
Mercy, each beanug comforts for us, the
wounded Union prisoners*) Sister Xavie came
to the hospital prison daily, accompanied each
timo by another sister, and each day went
to all of om- number aud gave fruit,
corn bread, cake, meat: gruel, arrow
root, and sometimes chickens and chick?
en broth. She brought me daily either
a bottle of wine or of brandy-goucrally a bot?
tle of old Malaga wino. There were eight
wounded men confined in our coll, only ono of
whom, Captain Lawler, was a Roman Catho?
lic. All received tho same attentions at tho
hands of Sister M. Xavier and companion.
The majority of our number wero of tho Pro?
testant fa'th; but there waa no distinction
made between us on account of religion or
wuionality. Tho Bisters were, day and night,
unremitting in the'r attentions to us. They
provided for ail of our wants, aud mado our
pnson life in Charleston a perfect heaven on
earth, compared to what wo experienced after
leaving that pla'je. Sister Xavier offen brought
interesting books of a'l kinds. Lint, medi?
cines und money, were furnished by her to
tho-o m need, and nearly al), if not alt, were
daily supplied with wine, cordial, brandy or
somo stimulating liquor. This kind treatment
continued without intermission during the
two months we were prisoneia in Charleston.
1 have not the commaud of language where?
with to sufficiently attest tho great benevo?
lence and kindness of tho Sisters of Mercy
who were in Charleston, South Carolina, in
1862, ministering to the every want of our
wounded Uniou prisoners, nearly all^if whom,
myself included, were Protestants.

THE WRITING ON THE WALL.
[From thc Round Table, February 13.)
Joubcrt said that there are heads that have
no windows, and that daylight cannot strike
tiom above. Such are the heads of the jour?
nalists who arc only just beginning to discover
thal important truth about General Grant's
fu1 ure political relations which was clearly set
forth by the Hound Table as long as last No?
vember. Immediately after tho Presidential
election it was shown in these columns that
tho bitu.itlo i of the successful candidate rela?
tively to the extremists of the dominant Deny
was such that he must inevitably either be
ruled by thom ar net thom at Aaiianco; that,
inasmuch as at the Mme or thc convention,
they needed him very much more than he
needed thom, it was unlikely, even were he a
plastic man, that they could control his policy
as President; and that, as he is by no means a
plastic man, tho contrary alternative might be
regarded as a certainty. Wo have no objec?
tion to furnish ideas for the journalists-cus?
tom bas made it easy; for the discriminating
public will boar witness bow regularly the
seeds have been sown by tho Round l able that
have subsequently sprouted into fall bloom
sensations, crusades and startling develop?
ments in the i'ertilo pages of the dailies. Bat
we really think their windows might have been
sufficiently open to admit so obvious aud nec?
essary an inference as this about General
Grant without bang ob?god to take it from
second kami; moro especially after so Jong a
time that, through its dissemination amoug tho
masses, thc instructive reflection has come
from below rather than from above.
General Gram's visit to tho metropolis, at a
moment just beloro his inauguration, seems to
have been instrumental in producing this sud?
den enlightenment, and for reasons not diffi?
cult to find. Ho has for somo time beon
t uv nt; thouing himself with war Democrats
and conservative Republicans, and giving tho
Radicals nf hoi h parties an impartial cold
shoulder. This has been accompusued through
means well understood toy tho initiated, but
only dimly appreciated, throuuh results, by
tho general public. Floating iu tho atmos?
phere everywhere-whence or how none could
exactly to.l-has been, and is, tho conviction
ihat between Giaut and tho hitherto ail-pow?
erful Radicals is to bo a deathless tend. But
nilli the General's visit to ?Sew York this has
taken a more pa pable form. It is now known
thittho disposition of those great bones of
contention, aud, JU thc matter of their distri?
bution, those unerring indices of polioy, Lao
Cabiuet offices, tho loieign missions, aud tho

gut, has been offered to Admiral Porter, who
is pretty sure to accept it. Strong effoi ts havo
been made to induce thc appointment of Mr.
E. IL Washburue as Munster lo France, but
thoy are almost certain io tail. It is pretty
woll decided that Mr. M. H. Grinuell is to be
Collector of iNew York, aud that Mr. C. A.
Dana will bo either Surveyor or Navy Agcut.
The last-named gentleman is almost as popu?
lar w:th Democrats as with Republicans, and
his appointment aud subsequent career-able

but Mr. l'orney's simmer connection willi let?

all this clearly indicates th3 geooral naturo

becauso they bad the ciiauce, tho extremists

Execution of Whelan. ?he AInrderer of
D'Arcy McGee, at Ottawa, Canada
Canse of tho Crime-The Trial and Con -
viction-Statement of the Prisoner.
A dispatch dated Ottawa, Canada, February
ll, gives the following account of the execution
of James Whelan, for the assassination of the
Hon. Thomas D'Arcy McOeo :
THE CAUSE OF THE CRIME.
An Irishman by birth, and of very respecta?
ble parentage. Thomas D'Arcy McGee at an
early age emigrated to the United States, and
for some time pursued the profession of
journalist in Boston. After the lapse of
a few years he returned to Ireland, be
camc attached to the Dubliu Nation,
but being in some way connected with the
revolutionary outbreak of 1818, was compelled
to leave his native land and seek refuge in the
United States. He remained in Now York for
awhile, and then removed to Montreal, where
he ever after resided. In Canada Mr. McGee
attained a high position in political life, and
from being a warm republican becamo an ardent
royalist. When the Fenian movement com?
menced, he severely denounced and used all of
his influence against it. Thc position bc took
on this question made him unpopular with the
masses of his countrymen in the United States
and Canada, and he was either expelled or
iorced to resign his membership of the St. Pa?
trick's Society of Montreal. As later develop?
ments prove, soon after ho announced his op?
position to the Fenians, a plot was formed to
At half-oast two o'clock on the morning of
the 7th of April last, Air. McGee left tho Par?
lement buildings at Ottawa on his return home
to hts lodgings, on Sparks-street. There had
been a night session of Parliament, and he had
delivered a very able aud eloquent speech on
the subject ot the attitude of Nova Scotia to?
ward the Dominion. A number of persons left
the buildings at about the same time he did,
among them a lad named William Trotter, one
of thc pages of the House ot Commons, and a
son of Mr. McGee's landlady. Just before
leaving the Parliament grounds tho report of a
pistol was heard, and on the lad arriv?
ing near his mother's bouse, he found
tho murdered man lying ou the sidewalk.
Ho immediately gave tho alarm, and on
persons reaching the scene Mr. McGee breathed
a few tames and then expired. Soon after
Whelan "-as arrosted. He was subsequently
iried and convicted. Every effort was mada to
have tho sentence mitigated, but without
avail. Winn the unhappy mau ascertained
thal there ? as no hope he turned his attention
to religion. Catholic priests and Sisters of
Mercy were constantly with bim, administer-'
ing those religious consolations which ore so
valued by persons of his faith. His bohavior
was uniformly quiet and good.
TH? EVENTFUL MOE NINO-A LABOE CEOWD IN
The day was mild and sunshiny, tho sky
blue and cleat. At au carly hoar there was
small appearance of a crowd, but by nine peo?
ple began driving in from tho country, and be?
fore ten, suddenly, os it by magic, tully ten
thousand were garnered. An unusual y large
proportion were boys and women. At the par?
lor windows of tho few respectable houses
which dot the open country behind the jail
overlooking the scaffold were gathered many
ladies of high standing. Police aud soldiers
pressed back the crowd from the walls, bnt
could not keep them clear. Inside tho court
were two companies of troops, with fixed
bayonets and loaded rifles.
THC PRISONER'S HST HOURS ON EARTH.
Whelan passed a bad night. About seven
o'clock his courage deserted him and he burst
into an agony of tears, crying that God bad
forsaken him, and that he must die for another
mau's crime. Tho Bev. Fathers O'Connor and
Tabaret, who, with tho Sisters of Mercy, were
unremitting iu their attendance, tried to cheer
him with the consoiat'ons of roligion, and he
partook of the holy sacrament. Afterwards he
fed into a troubled Bleep, occasionally crouch?
ing into the cell corner aud crying for the
watchers to save him. He bad bidden fare?
well to his wife affectionately in tho evening.
At six o'clock this morning he awakened, had
a cup of coffee, some toast and eggs, and passed
two hours in prayer, occasionally varied by a
wild burst of weeping, tho priests meanwhile
exhorting bim to courage. Uo dressed care?
fully in black, neatly brushed, with polished
boots and a green tie. In religious exercises
tho time passed until a quarter past ten, when
the executioner arrived and inspected the pre?
parations. Whelan in bia corridor, surrounded
by the priests and nuns, fell on bis knees and
fervently recited prayers after Father O'Con
THE OFFICIALS AND EXECUTIONER.
The corridor doors were opened and the
sheriff announced that the hom' for the execu?
tion had arrived. All heads were bared, and
some of tho spectators within the orison were
deadly faint and sick. Tho sheriff ?rae dressed
in black, with a cocked hat and sword; the
jail governor in blaok. The executioner was
clad in a blue jacket and pantaloons, with a
striped red and white cap. His cape was
closely swathed with blaok crape. He was
young, lithe and active. His hands and foot
and features, so far as distinguishable through
the crape, wore delicate aa these of a woman,
and a woman many take this executioner to
ARR rv AL OF TH 5 PRISONER-IIIS 8FEE0H.
Whelan walkod firmly, although his month
twitched nervously, and the Angora of his pin?
ioned hands strove to gripo each othor hard.
Father O'Connor prayed aloud, and Wh lan re
? s ponded mechanically, iu a voice that was
trembling and husky: "Christ bavo morey upon
I us." His eyes ani cheeks were swollen, but
his faco othorwiso pallid. He advanced to the
drop and took Ins placo firmly, flo said:
"My Friends aud Feiiaio-counfrymvi-I ad?
dress'a fow wordsitoyoa upon this solemn oc?
casion. I hope you will pardon this ray oflonce.
This is my hope-that you viii forgivo mo. I

by word, act or deed, I ask forgiveness for the
same. God save Ireland 1 God save my soul !''
TH 3 EXECUTION.
Tho execulioner drew down tho cap over bis
eyes and placad tho noose round his neck, and
with his whit.', dry lips still muttering a prayer,
when least expected, the drop fell and Wuel an
was launched into eternity. He foll six feet.
His feet kicked together once. His body
vibrated for less than a ni nuto and he was
dead. Tho drop fell as mae minutes past
eleven o'clock precisely. The crowd dispers ed

At this season the atmosphere is surohargod with
the Feeds of intermittents, remittents, rheumatism,
pulmonary disordors, bilious complaints, and the
libe. Persons whose nervous systems are relaxed,
aro the first lo succumb to these distempors. Brace
up the physical energies then with this potential
vegetable tonic. It is the most powciful reen perant
which the botanic kingdom has ever yielded to pa?

admit that a tonic and alterative, componn ded of ap?
